Al-Qaeda affiliated fighters from Jabhat al-Nusra who seized dozens of Fijian soldiers serving as U.N. peacekeepers on the Golan Heights last week are demanding their group be removed from a global terrorism list and that compensation be paid for members killed in fighting.

MSN(h/t Larry A)Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga said negotiations had been stepped up between the Al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front and a new U.N. negotiation team now in place in Syria. “The rebels are not telling us where the troops are, but they continue to reassure us they are being well-looked after,” Tikoitoga told media in Suva. “They also told us they are ensuring that they are taken out of battle areas.”
Heavy fighting erupted on Monday between the Syrian army and Islamofascist rebels near where 45 Fijian peacekeepers were captured and scores of their fellow blue helmets from the Philippines escaped after resisting capture. The number of Fijians captured had previously been put at 44.
Syria’s three-year civil war reached the frontier with Israeli-controlled territory last week when Islamist fighters overran a crossing point in the line that has separated Israelis from Syrians in the Golan Heights since a 1973 war. The fighters then turned on the U.N. blue helmets from a peacekeeping force that has patrolled the ceasefire line for 40 years. After the Fijians were captured on Thursday, more than 70 Filipinos spent two days besieged at two locations before reaching safety.
The al-Nusra Front, a Syrian affiliate of al Qaeda, says it is holding the peacekeepers because the U.N. force protects Israel.
Tikoitoga said the group was demanding compensation for three fighters killed in the confrontation with the U.N. peacekeepers, as well as humanitarian assistance to the people of Ruta, a stronghold of the group on outskirts of Damascus, and the removal of the organization from the U.N. list of banned terrorist organizations.
“We’ve been assured by U.N. headquarters that the U.N. will bring all its resources to bear to ensure the safe return of our soldiers,” the Fijian army chief said.
Jabhat al-Nusra released footage of the execution and beheading of several Syrian civilians in Daraa. Jabhat al-Nusra’s ideology is dominated by sectarian mindset. They execute civilians for being Alawite or Shiite and call them “Nussayris.” (WARNING: Graphic)
“I want to cut your throat,” said the pro-Israel supporter who beat up Galloway. (Too bad he didn’t) FYI: Muslim convert Galloway was made an honorary citizen of Gaza by the leader of Hamas.

In his first TV interview after release from hospital, British MP George Galloway told RT he is surprised by the lack of condemnation from other UK politicians of the brutal attack on him. The assault by a pro-Israeli man left Galloway in much pain. Galloway, 60, was brutally beaten in Notting Hill, London last Friday allegedly for his views on the conflict in Gaza.
“It’s very painful to walk, to move, even to speak because I sustained a dislocated jaw, quite bad head injuries, and very badly cracked ribs,” he said.
Resident of Kuna, Idaho, are opposing a proposal for a Muslim cemetery because of concerns for the environment, stemming from the unsanitary conditions that result from the Muslim custom of burying the dead in just a shroud, without any kind of casket.
Not to worry, Eric Holder and the Department of Jihadi Justice are ready to hit the town with a ‘discrimination’ lawsuit if the proposed cemetery does not get approval. Because in Obama-land, sharia law may override American law. Wouldn’t want to offend any muslims, now would we?
Idaho Press The Islamic Community of Bosniaks in Boise submitted a proposal for a license to use land outside Kuna as a cemetery. The proposal was appealed, and a public meeting will be held to comments about the appeal and the proposed cemetery. The ICBB applied to build a 10-acre cemetery and a chapel at 15000 Cloverdale Road.
Due to Islamic burial practices, a Kuna resident sent a letter issuing concerns about to the sanitation and appearance of the cemetery. According to the Islamic beliefs, bodies are not embalmed and not buried in coffins. The body is sheathed in white cotton or linen cloth, and according the ICBB, buried at least half the height of the deceased.
The letter from the concerned Kuna resident presented three concerns with the cemetery. The resident’s letter said burying the dead in only a cloth would leave the bodies susceptible to animals digging up a corpse, which could spread diseases. Bodies being dug up would cost the city community money, the letter said. Finally, the resident said the cemetery would hurt the esthetic value of Kuna.
The public meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Sept. 10 in the Commissioners Main Hearing Room 1235 at 200 West Front street in Boise.
How many are from the Middle East? The Saudis are sending students here by the jumbo jetload. Several of the 9/11 hijackers were here on expired student visas. How many Muslim terrorists are among these 6,000?
More than a third of the flight schools in America accepting foreign students still have not been certified by the FAA. And Barack Hussein Obama just lifted the ban on Libyan students who want to attend flight schools here.
So where is CAIR calling for a “hate crime” investigation, now? Crickets. Columbus Police said they’ve never seen anything like it – three churches vandalized in the same night…apparently by Muslims, considering that the Christian-hating graffiti contained very specific quotes from the quran.
FOX 59Three Columbus churches are hit by graffiti artists, who left a message that many are questioning. The graffiti artist tagged the outside of the churches with specific chapters and verses from the Quran. The vandalism is being condemned by members of the Islamic religion and the entire community.
The word “infidels” and “Qur’an 3:151″ were written in black spray paint on the front and side of St. Bartholomew Catholic Church.
“We will cast terror in the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which he had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.” –Quran 3:151
“It’s upsetting to people, certainly because we have a beautiful church, but also because what is the message if there is a message? Because, there’s just not a whole lot to go on,” said Father Doug Marcotte, Associate Pastor for St. Bartholomew Catholic Church.
Fr. Marcotte thinks it happened sometime between Saturday night and before Sunday church services. It was discovered, but quickly removed. Though there are still a lot of questions as to why “infidels”, and why the Quran. “What are you trying to say, and are you just trying to be mean,” asked Fr. Marcotte. (No, they just want to kill you)
Similar graffiti was cleaned off the front of Lakeview Church of Christ in Columbus. No specific mention of the Quran here, but “infidels” and another word were spray painted by the front door. “Qur’an 19:88″ and “infidels” were left on two spots of East Columbus Christian Church during that same time period.
They (Christians) say: “The Most Gracious has betaken a son!” Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous! At it the skies are about to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin, that they attributed a son to the Most Gracious. For it is not consonant with the majesty of the Most Gracious that He should beget a son. Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth but must come to The Most Gracious as a servant.” (Quran 19:88-93)
“We condemn this, and I read the verse, most importantly what that showed me is the ignorance who actually misquoted or misinterpreted the Quran,” said Nassim Khaled, a resident of Columbus who volunteers at the Islamic Center. (CRAP. It means exactly what they wanted to convey to Christians)
Khaled says the important thing to realize is reading the verses, that were spray painted on the buildings, alone, can make them sound scary. In his eyes, they’re actually far from that. Khaled met with members of that East Columbus Christian Church to show togetherness. (The quran IS scary)
Police have been notified, and one of the churches actually had a surveillance camera nearby. They hope that’ll provide some clue as to who did this. (WHAT – No mention of a hate crime?)
Two Muslims are facing charges after Volusia County deputies said they started a fight at a bar Wednesday night. Staff at the Jus’ Beachy Bar on Ocean Shore Boulevard claimed they refused to serve alcohol to 54-year-old Faisal Albagdadi (photo right) and 30-year-old Ahmed Hindi after they walked into the bar already drunk.
Click Orlando “I need cops at Jus’ Beachy Pecker’s Pub immediately. I got a huge fight going. I mean they’re tearing shit up,” the caller told 911 dispatchers. “We wouldn’t even serve him when he came in, he was so drunk.” Deputies said that’s when the men got angry and attacked the customers. “They’re using chairs and everything else,” the caller told dispatchers.
Deputies said the men smashed six bar stools, threw several glasses that cut one woman in the eye and beat up a couple of men. At one point, the fight got so out of control, the dispatcher couldn’t get a hold of the caller. The men took off before deputies arrived, but the caller was able to get their tag number and the description of their car. Ormond Beach police then quickly tracked down the car and arrested the men.
The arrest report showed that not only did Hindi deny initiating the bar fight, deputies said Albagdadi was uncooperative and threatened to “kidnap an American and behead him, once he’s released from jail.”
Both men face criminal mischief and battery charges. The other customers were not seriously injured. However, the men allegedly caused more than $1,200 in damage.
The FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by Muslims living in America.
Washington Free Beacon Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements—none motivated by radical Islam. The include:
Anti-government militia groups
White supremacy extremists
Sovereign citizen nationalist
Violent animal rights activists
Anti- and Pro-abortion activists
Puerto Rican nationalists
The Obama administration in 2009 adopted a new policy that substituted the vague term “violent extremism” as a replacement for terrorism. The report left out all references to the April 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon, which killed three people and injured some 264 others. The FBI report also made no direct reference to the 2009 Fort Hood shooting, by radicalized Army Maj. Nidal Hasan. The mass shooting left 13 dead and more than 30 injured.
“Since 9/11, FBI leadership—as well as leaders from Department of Homeland Security, the State Department, CIA, Pentagon, and the National Security Council—relies on easily identifiable jihadis from the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas, al Qaeda and elsewhere to advise it on how to deal with ‘domestic extremism.’
Former FBI Agent John Guandolo said he was not surprised the report did not include any reference to domestic-origin Islamic terror. “It should not surprise anyone who follows the jihadi threats in the United States that the FBI would not even include ‘Islamic terrorism’ in its assessment of serious threats to the republic in an official report,” Guandolo said.
However, the government has no problem putting domestic Christian and Jewish organizations as well as Counterjihad groups on the same ‘Religious Extremist Watch List’ as Al-Qaeda, Hamas, ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood, Nation of Islam and the KKK.
Guandolo said the failure to recognize the domestic Islamist threat had allowed domestic jihadist groups and their sympathizers to shape U.S. government create policies that do not acknowledge jihad as the root cause for the current global chaos. An example, he said, is that the FBI has appointed a domestic Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas support organization leader to an FBI advisory council at the Washington headquarters. Additionally, the FBI is failing to train agents and analysts on the Muslim Brotherhood network in the United States, Guandolo said.
Guandolo said the vast majority of U.S. Islamic organizations were identified in recent U.S. terrorism trials as part of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent group for the Palestinian terror group Hamas. Thus, these groups are aligned with the same objectives as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, al Qaeda, and others, he said.
“Our FBI is not teaching their agents and analysts this information; they are not sharing it with local and state law enforcement officials; and they are not investigating and pursuing the very individuals and organizations which are supporting and training jihadis in America,” Guandolo said.

My father was a great man, may he rest in peace, as life wasn’t kind to him. He was Muslim by name but he preferred his African culture which he was proud of. My mother never wore a hijab nor did anyone in my family. Islam was a faith that was preached to us as a religion of peace. We never looked closer.
At a young age, I remember my father telling my mother that he did not want us to attend an Islamic school as religion and modern education contradicted each other and that I and my brothers and sisters will be confused as result. There was no animosity towards other religions in our household and we went to Christian schools. I was lucky, I had parents who were open-minded. We were like any normal family.
Normal, that is, until my older brother started showing strong interest in practicing Islam.
Without going into too much detail, my brother’s behavior changed. He became strange and distant as if he and I no longer had anything in common. The brother I used to play with when we were children had become a total stranger. Even though I loved him, I avoided him, I turned away, hoping it was a phase he was going to grow out of. I was wrong as it turned out to be deadly (for him).
I remember my mother telling me that she had contacted the Federal Police and reported my brother’s strange behavior. She was worried and she felt helpless. The police did not help because my brother did not have any prior convictions and on paper he looked like a good kid.
I, for one, thought mother was overreacting because in my mind, it was impossible that my brother would do something so stupid. You see, he was bright, but too trusting. I think that’s how the Islamist preachers got to him. He married a Muslim convert of English and Irish descent who wore a face veil, in a small religious ceremony that none of the family members attended.
At times I wondered, why one earth would someone want to convert to be part of this madness? It was odd indeed, then again, we live in a strange world. You see, my sister-in law-believes she found the truth and that that the rest of us are losers. Sadly, she could not be any further away from the truth.
My brother travelled to Somalia but, of course, he never told me he was going there, and as I was busy with life, I never gave it much thought. I wish I had. I will always blame myself and it is something I have to live with.
When my brother’s death was reported to us we were in complete shock. My mother, however, was waiting for bad news. I remember nights before, she prayed for hours and I knew she was praying for my brother. My mother prays till this day, it’s heartbreaking to see her in pain. She gets so angry about how the Western governments are not doing enough when she watches the news and sees that what happened to us, is now happening everywhere, and it’s no longer an isolated incident.
A day or two later, people were knocking at our door with smiles and gifts, they seemed happy. At first, it did not make any sense until I asked what the gifts were for and what were they happy about? Then it hit me, they were happy that my brother was killed, they were happy he was buried like an animal, they were happy because we were miserable.
My sister in law was still in Somalia at the time. When I found her phone number a week or so later, it was what she told me that I will forever remember. You see I was desperate, I needed to know. I was in shock and I could not believe that this was happening. So I asked her, what happened to my brother? Her response was clear, she told that my brother was killed and she was very happy, and when I asked her about his body she said he was buried and that was it. We never spoke again.
He was a martyr and somehow we were supposed to be happy about it. Islam betrayed me that day. I have told the relatives and neighbors with gifts at our front door to never come back, and if they did, that I will report them to police., I told them they were monsters and to burn in hell. But I wasn’t done yet, someone had to pay for our misery and I wasn’t going to lose without a fight.
My brother had two little children, a girl and boy, that we have managed to bring back home with the help of the police. It wasn’t easy but we did get them and they are now safe. We placed their names on a watch list so their mother cannot take them out of the country as she wanted to move to Saudi Arabia with her new husband, whom she married one week after my brother’s death.
We did not succeed in our attempt to get full custody, as there wasn’t enough evidence that my sister-in-law was part of terrorist network. However, we have visitation rights, meaning we can influence their upbringing. Almost a decade ago, the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab terror group of Somalia was not well-known, however, Islam’s brutal ideology was always there in Somalia. It was a long battle, the court case alone took a little over three years. That was five years of my life of complete madness.
As a young girl, it was hard, and deep down inside, I hated Islam, because Islam hates women. My mother never bothered me too much, she herself was bullied for not wearing Arabian/Muslim attire, instead preferring to wear her traditional African clothes. I recall my mother one day telling a group of Muslim women who came over that she would never wear their Arabian clothes as it symbolized hell on earth.
Praying was an aspect of Islam I found very hard because, I have to pray to Allah and Mohammed and it bothered me. I felt that I was betraying my conscious. How could I pray to same Allah and Mohammed as the terrorists do? I could not have any association with the same people I hate so much.
I can go on further, however, the point I’m trying to make is that Islam hurts the people who believe in it the most. The best of the Muslims are those who fight for the creation of Muslim world and those like me are the ultimate betrayers who deserve to be killed. My brother was the best Muslim in our family and all he got was a miserable ending and hurt so many people along the way.
Change is like death, a part of me died that day. I and my family found help from the very same people that Islam call infidels whilst our own relatives and the Muslim community betrayed us.
Fear of being called “racist” and not wanting to rock the “multicultural” fantasy boat by publicly condemning Muslims (rather than the oft-used PC term ‘Asians’) for such unspeakable crimes, these influential voices are as guilty of the rape and exploitation of thousands of young white British girls as the Muslim paedophiles and sex traffickers are.
Seven years of harassment and attacks by Muslims have finally forced a Palestinian church in East Jerusalem out of their building, church leaders said. The congregation of Calvary Baptist Church, under Holy Land Missions, moved out of their building in the Shofat area of Jerusalem in July after Islamists threatened their landlord. They are looking for a safe, permanent place to meet.
Morning Star News(h/t Susan K)Pastor Steven Khoury said he was emotionally torn when he handed over the keys. The persecution was difficult but had also been a catalyst for spiritual development, he said. “It was very emotional, because a lot of our people really started to grow there,” he said. “Most of the growth happened in Shofat because of the persecution.”
The persecution started almost immediately after the congregation moved into the building in a predominantly Muslim area in 2007. Within 10 days of starting meetings and worship services, a Muslim who lived close to the church building attacked a member with a knife. Then someone tried to set the building on fire, likely with a Molotov cocktail, Khoury said. “It only burned a few of our playground sets and didn’t reach the building,” he said.
This sign in Bethlehem greets Christian worshippers coming to visit their Christian holy sites.
Next came the vandalism – first cars parked at the church building were damaged, then the property, and finally there were physical attacks on children coming to church gatherings. “These were all spread out over a two- or three-year period, to let us know that we were not welcome there,” Khoury said.
When the local government accepted a request in late 2008 to put up a road sign identifying the location of the church building, things “really escalated,” Khoury said. “When we did that, it took everything to the next level. The landlords were now being threatened. The landlords were being told, ‘How dare you do this, this is a disgrace to Islam. If you don’t do anything about this, we will.’”
Eventually the landlord succumbed to the pressure, and the 110-member congregation had to leave the building. The departure last month was not the first time Muslims angry about their activities have forced the Jerusalem congregation to leave a building they were using for ministry. It has happened twice before.
In 2006, Holy Land Missions had to leave a building in the Beit Hanina area of East Jerusalem, which, like Shofat, is a Muslim-majority area. In 2004, when the group rented the building, church vehicles were vandalized, a sign identifying the church was torn down twice and the building was subjected to repeated vandalism and break-ins, Khoury said. By comparison, Khoury doesn’t remember any other building near the church property being vandalized.
Church administrator Hany Khayo said persecution has been constant “I have been here since 2004, and every day we have a story,” Khayo said. “[They persecute us] because we believe in one God, because we believe that Jesus is our Lord and we ask everyone to have God’s love,” Khayo said.
Eventually the landlord of the Beit Hanina building began receiving threats from his fellow Muslims, and the church had to leave after only two years.
What we do hear is a lot of double talk where no one takes responsibility for the rapes, exploitation, and sex trafficking of more than 1400 young white girls by Muslim men in Rotherham…a problem, according to a leading children’s charity Chief Executive, Jared Khan (Pakistani Muslim?), that is “all over England.” Yet the media refuse to call the Muslim perpetrators “Muslims,” for fear of being called “racist.”
Sikh Federation in Britain accuse mainstream UK media of ignoring efforts to get them to stop using the generic (and virtually always erroneous) term ‘Asian’ when, in fact, what they should be labeling them is ‘Muslim.’
Sikhsiyasat(h/t Maria J) The Sikh Federation (UK) press release issued yesterday titled: ‘Abandon term ‘Asian’ and call a spade a spade for the sake of child victims’ has largely been ignored by the mainstream media”, informs another press release by the UK Sikh body. In part this is no surprise as it criticises the media itself for being on the political correctness bandwagon. It is easy for the media to keep using the word ‘Asian’ and not be specific. Journalists should however view this as a form of self imposed censorship.
Being specific about perpetrators of a crime is not expressing views that encourage racial or religious hatred, instead it is exposing the truth and ensuring communities from which the perpetrators originate and those in positions of power address the serious problem at hand.
Whilst the mainstream media may have deliberately ignored the Sikh Federation (UK) press release it has struck a chord with leading politicians. Both the Home Secretary and the Leader of the Opposition retweeted the press release within hours of its release. This implies senior politicians are far more sympathetic with the line being taken by the Sikh Federation (UK) – the media has a duty to follow this up.
Hundreds of non-Sikhs have retweeted quotes by Bhai Amrik Singh, Chair of the Sikh Federation (UK) from the press release. Many have also positively responded to the Sikh Federation (UK) tweets. For example, in response to the tweet:
It is time for the media, police, local authorities and others to abandon political correctness and stop using the throwaway term ‘Asian’
Some of the reactions are below:
‘This is the most sensible suggestion I have read to date, well done.’
‘Please see what the Sikhs have asked. Drop the term ‘Asian’ it is misleading & offensive’
‘Absolutely brilliant, well said. Thank God for our friends in the Sikh community who love and care about Britain!’
‘Pity there`s not 4 Million Sikhs in the UK’
‘Indeed.. hard working resourceful people.’
‘Fully supported here. They use the term “Asian” as a deliberate attempt to fog the reality of what’s been happening.’
‘My wife is Japanese. She finds it offensive. No one uses “European” to describe French, Germans etc.’
‘Totally agree mate it’s turning and needs to! Stops tarring decent upstanding Asian communities.’
‘Agreed. As far as I know, most of the “Asian” perpetrators were of Pakistani origin. Why not say so?’
‘I agree 100%! I have been saying this for years! It’s an insult to Sikhs.’
‘BTW, re 2011 riots when some of you guys came out & guarded your temple. So proud you were British!’
‘Totally agree. The truth is out there, do use it. Muslim Grooming Gangs. Its not bigoted or racist. It’s the truth!’
‘Wouldn’t it be just ideal thing to replace UK Islamics with our Sikh friends. I’m very sorry you have been smeared by the media’
‘Sikhs are honourable people, their culture is the antithesis of Muslim culture.. they treat women as equals.’
‘Totally agree. I’m sorry media implying Sikhs involved in Rotherham abuse by only using term ‘Asian’’
’I agree, time to put the blame firmly where the blame and guilt lies…’
The headline on the story implies that Voight was not welcome due to his pro-Israel views. This, despite a sentence in the article stating that neither Jolie nor Pitt have ever made their views on Israel publicly known.
Honest Reporting The headline waslater amended and “pro-Israel” removed but a considerable chunk of the story is still dedicated to Voight’s advocacy on behalf of Israel even though it has nothing whatsoever to do with his personal relationship with his daughter and now son-in-law.
And just in case there is any doubt that The Independent has consciously decided to promote a paparazzi celebrity story by attaching Israel to it, this is how it was posted on The Independent’s Facebook page:
The man, who appears to be a civilian, was accused of giving out information to the Syrian government. The incident took place in the city of al-Rastan in the Homs governorate, the third largest city in the Homs and under the control of the FSA.
These “moderate” rebels have been getting $$hundreds of millions in military aid from Barack Hussein Obama and other Western countries.
