Britain’s war against Islam in the streets of London

photo-viAn interesting, if somewhat biased, documentary by a group called ‘Vice News’ about the ongoing turf wars between extremist Muslims and patriotic groups like Britain First that are waging a war of ideas against them. Despite several references to the “far right extremists,” the video attempts to be evenhanded but its sympathies are biased toward the Muslim side.

Note: The video talks about Paul Golding of Britain First being banned from London and all political activities, over his encounter with Muslim extremist, Anjem Choudary, but fails to mention that all charges against Golding were quickly dismissed by the court.

ARIZONA: Conservative radio host under fire from terror-linked CAIR for saying she didn’t want to get into a taxi with a Somali Muslim driver

samp36b0bef662f09255-viConservative talk show host, Lisa Benson, warned that Somali refugees control the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and insisted that she will not ride in taxis with Somali drivers out of fears for her safety.

RWW  “There is an exclusive contract with the Somali community both for janitorial services and for taxi driving” — not exactly sure how an airport has an “exclusive contract” with an ethnic community, but she goes on — “the refugee community has unrestricted access at my airport to baggage, to planes, to many, many things.”

“Getting out of the plane last weekend I went to a taxi stand and quietly asked the attendant to put me in a cab, preferably not a Somali cab – that was my first mistake as I was trying to protect myself,” she said, suggesting that she would be a victim of an anti-Semitic attack if she was in a car with a Somali driver.

CAIR reported on Benson’s remarks and noted that “Benson’s Board of Advisors includes notorious (as only CAIR calls them)“Islamophobes” such as Nonie Darwish, Steven Emerson and John Guandolo.”


Al-Qaeda jihadists have seized control of secret U.S. base in Libya

A key jihadist leader and longtime member of al Qaeda has taken control of a secretive training facility set up by U.S. special operations forces on the Libyan coastline to help hunt down Islamic militants, according to local media reports and U.S. officials.


The Daily Beast  In the summer of 2012, American Green Berets began refurbishing a Libyan military base 27 kilometers west of Tripoli in order to hone the skills of Libya’s first Western-trained special operations counter-terrorism fighters. Less than two years later, that training camp is now being used by groups with direct links to al Qaeda to foment chaos in post-Qaddafi Libya.

Last week, the Libyan press reported that the camp (named “27” for the kilometer marker on the road between Tripoli and Tunis) was now under the command of Ibrahim Ali Abu Bakr Tantoush, a veteran associate of Osama bin Laden who was first designated as part of al Qaeda’s support network in 2002 by the United States and the United Nations. The report said he was heading a group of Salifist fighters from the former Libyan base.


In other words, Tantoush is now the chief of a training camp the U.S. and Libyan governments had hoped would train Libyan special operations forces to catch militants like Tantoush. 

According to one U.S. official who is read into the training program, the camp today is considered a “denied area,” or a place where U.S. forces would have to fight their way in to gain access. Until now, the Western press has not reported that the base used to train Libyan special operations forces was seized by the militants those troops were supposed to find, fix and finish.

The fact that the one-time training base for Libyan counter-terrorism teams is now the domain of terrorists is a poignant reminder the United States has yet to win its war with al Qaeda, despite the successful 2011 raid that killed its founder and leader.


This is particularly true for Libya. Since the 9/11 anniversary attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, jihadist groups and al Qaeda’s regional affiliates have been gaining territory throughout Libya. News that a veteran like Tantoush is now in charge of a military base only 27 kilometers from Libya’s capital shows just how much the security in Libya has deteriorated.

Seth Jones, an al Qaeda expert at the Rand Corporation, said Libya is now a haven for many of al Qaeda’s North African affiliates. “There are a number of training camps for a wide range of al Qaeda and jihadist groups that have surfaced in southwest Libya, northwest Libya in and around Tripoli and northeast Libya in and around Benghazi,” he said.


Tantoush has a long history from the Peshawar days of associating with senior al Qaeda leaders including Osama bin Laden. He has been involved in financing and facilitating al Qaeda activities and he has had a long-standing relationship with Libyan jihadist groups.”

 “Libya in general is a major thoroughfare, the I-95 for foreign fighters into Syria from Africa,” the U.S. defense official said.







MUSLIMS denounce 9/11 Memorial Museum’s ‘accurate’ portrayal of Islam

Why were they even asked? Why would anyone care what Muslims think? They don’t  want people to think that Islam motivated the 9/11 Muslim hijackers even though most of the world acknowledges that it did.

Sheikh Mostafa Elazabawy, the imam of Masjid Manhattan, said he found the film about Al Qaeda at the museum deeply offensive.

Sheikh Mostafa Elazabawy, the imam of Masjid Manhattan, said he found the film about Al Qaeda at the museum deeply offensive. (And we find you Muslims deeply offensive. Get a clue, or even better, get out!)

NY Times  Past the towering tridents that survived the World Trade Center collapse, adjacent to a gallery with photographs of the 19 hijackers, a brief film at the soon-to-open National September 11 Memorial Museum will seek to explain to visitors the historical roots of the attacks.

The film, “The Rise of Al Qaeda,” refers to the terrorists as Islamists who viewed their mission as a jihad. The NBC News anchor Brian Williams, who narrates the film, speaks over images of terrorist training camps and Qaeda attacks spanning decades. Interspersed with his voice are explanations of the ideology of the terrorists, rendered in foreign-accented English translations.


The documentary is not even seven minutes long, the exhibit just a small part of the museum. But it has suddenly become over the last few weeks a flash point in what has long been one of the most highly charged issues at the museum: how it should talk about Islam and Muslims.

With the museum opening on May 21, it has shown the film to several groups, including an interfaith advisory group of clergy members. Those on the panel overwhelmingly took strong exception to the film and requested changes. But the museum has declined. In March, the sole imam in the group resigned to make clear that he could not endorse its contents.

“The screening of this film in its present state would greatly offend our local Muslim believers as well as any foreign Muslim visitor to the museum,” Sheikh Mostafa Elazabawy, the imam of Masjid Manhattan, wrote in a letter to the museum’s director. “Unsophisticated visitors who do not understand the difference between Al Qaeda and Muslims may come away with a prejudiced view of Islam, leading to antagonism and even confrontation toward Muslim believers near the site.”


Museum officials are standing by the film, which they say they vetted past several scholars.

“From the very beginning, we had a very heavy responsibility to be true to the facts, to be objective, and in no way smear an entire religion when we are talking about a terrorist group,” said Joseph C. Daniels, president and chief executive of the nonprofit foundation that oversees the memorial and museum.

At issue is whether it is appropriate or inflammatory for the museum to use religious terminology like “Islamist” and “jihad” in conjunction with the Sept. 11 attacks, without also making clear that the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful.


The terms “Islamist” and “jihadist” are frequently used in public discourse to describe extremist Muslim ideologies. But the problem with using such language in a museum designed to instruct people for generations is that most visitors are “simply going to say Islamist means Muslims, jihadist means Muslims,” said Akbar Ahmed, the chairman of the Islamic studies department at American University.

The museum did remove the term “Islamic terrorism” from its website earlier this month, after another Judenrat activist, Todd Fine, collected about 100 signatures of academics and scholars supporting its deletion.


In interviews, several leading scholars of Islam said that the term “Islamic terrorist” was broadly rejected as unfairly conflating Islam and terrorism, but the terms Islamist and jihadist can be used, in the proper context, to refer to Al Qaeda, preferably with additional qualifiers, like “radical,” or “militant.”


But for Mr. Elazabawy, and many other practicing Muslims, the words “Islamic” and “Islamist” are equally inappropriate to apply to Al Qaeda, and the word “jihad” refers to a positive struggle against evil, the opposite of how they view the terror attacks. Too damn bad!

For his part, Bernard Haykel, a professor of Near Eastern studies at Princeton University, defended the film, whose script he vetted. “The critics who are going to say, ‘Let’s not talk about it as an Islamic or Islamist movement,’ could end up not telling the story at all, or diluting it so much that you wonder where Al Qaeda comes from,” Dr. Haykel said.



EGYPT: Threats made by the Muslim Brotherhood thugs before and after the June 30th uprising and removal of Mohamed Morsi and the Brotherhood

This video, translated into English, came from my Egyptian friend, Eman Nabih. It’s too bad Congress and most of the American people will never get to see this. This is what General el-Sisi, hopefully the next president of Egypt, is up against. This is what Barack Hussein Obama welcomes into his administration.

Note: Mohamed Morsi is referred to as ‘Mursi’ in this video. Keep in mind, that Barack Hussein Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood radicals shown in this video, the same Muslim Brotherhood which has been designated a terrorist organization by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Bahrain, but NOT by the US, UK or the EU.

And not just Obama, it looks like Bill and Hillary Clinton have been tight with the Muslim Brotherhood thugs in Washington for a long time: leaked-photos-released-emails-show-clintons-in-bed-muslim-brotherhood


Did you hear that the 15-year-old boy who stowed away on Hawaiian Airlines is a Somali Muslim?

Thanks to a BNI reader, we now know that the stowaway teen was trying to get to his birth mother in Somalia, Africa. Guess we’re lucky he wasn’t an al-Shabaab Muslim terrorist with a bomb strapped to himself. Apparently all the extra security we have to go through doesn’t apply to the planes themselves.

CNN  (h/t Reader) A 15-year-old boy who survived a flight from California to Hawaii by hitching a ride in the plane’s wheel well said he was trying to get to Somalia to see his mother, a law enforcement official told CNN on Tuesday.

The NBC reporter in the video below says, “Police think he misunderstood the writing on the aircraft and thought it would get him to Africa.” (Sure, Hawaiian…African…anyone could make that mistake. Sheesh!)


Hey, MUSLIMS! You have only yourselves to thank for this kind of treatment at the airport

Muslim is upset because his two-year-old and six-year-old children were subjected to an intrusive patdown by the TSA at the airport.

From khan zahir100, who says:  “TSA pat down my 2 and 6 year old because they touch me & I was selected as usual for enhanced security check because of my name. Can they do that? When I ask why my kids the answer was because they came in close contact with me so they have to pat down them & my wife in a very rude manner. I was in shock. Till this day I cant forget what they did to my children how can they do this to children.”

(Hey Khan, it is precisely because of people like you with Muslim names that we all have to be subjected to this kind of  TSA scrutiny. Your kids could be wearing suicide bomb belts. Get  out of my country if you don’t like it)


UK: Muslim sharia squads accused of confiscating students’ Easter eggs

Children who took Easter eggs to class allegedly had them confiscated by “Muslim sharia/morality squads” patrolling a school in Birmingham, England.


National Post  The school is at the centre of an investigation into claims Islamic hardliners are attempting to infiltrate and run secular state schools in the city.

The mother of one of the students — who did not want to be named for fear of reprisals — told the Daily Express that groups of older students were taking the eggs from younger children and teachers were ignoring their actions.

“My daughter tried to bring in an Easter egg for a friend and one boy grabbed it and smashed it against a wall,” she said. “Another girl of about 11 brought in a little Easter bunny toy that she wanted to show her friends. They grabbed that off her too. All talk of Christmas and other non-Muslim festivals is banned. The teachers just turn a blind eye to it.” (I guess she didn’t bring in one of the Cadbury ‘halal’ bunnies)


She added, “Older boys are going round in these morality squads telling off girls if they do not wear veils.”

At least six schools in the city have been implicated in a “Trojan Horse” plot by extremists to “Islamize” secular state education. This has included illegal segregation of students according to sex and discrimination against non-Muslims. Up to 20 more schools are also under investigation. (See links below)






You know indoctrination of radical Islamic ideology is bad in England when Muslim parents are complaining about their children being radicalized by Muslim teachers in public schools


Barack Hussein Obama and Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR don’t want the Supreme Court to decide whether or not Jerusalem is part of Israel

Over objections from the White House and CAIR, the nation’s highest court said Monday it would decide if passports of Jerusalem-born American citizens can identify Israel as their place of birth.

A US government official with the State

NY POST  The last thing the Obama administration needs is more meddling in the Middle East peace process — and this time, the meddler is the US Supreme Court. Spokesman Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations warned, “We believe it would be best not to rock the boat, in terms of promotion of political agendas from the United States.”

The United States has refused to recognize Israel’s claim of sovereignty over the Holy City, and lists simply Jerusalem as the birthplace for Americans born there. But the parents of Menachem Zivotofsky, 11, have been suing for years to get his American passport to identify his birthplace as “Jerusalem, Israel.”

The high court will hear the case during its term that starts in October, with a decision expected by June 2015, four months before Menachem’s bar mitzvah.

GERMANY: Turkish Muslim candidate changes Christian Democratic Party logo to an Islamic one

How long before Muslim politicians in Germany will be flying the black flag of jihad?

IslamvsEurope (h/t passerby)  Local elections are to be held in the German town of Neuss (Neuß) on the 25th of May. A Muslim candidate of Turkish origin, Yasar Calik (photo below), from the Christian Democratic Union party, has now added the Islamic half moon and star to the logo of the party, in an apparent effort to get all the Muslim votes. (Not that he wouldn’t get them even without desecrating the logo)




INDONESIA, the world’s largest Muslim nation, is home to the Surabaya ‘Zoo of Death,’ where the latest victim of this wretched animal park was a lion found hanging by its neck in its cage


INDONESIA’S SURUBAYA ZOO, where more than 50 animals have died in the last 3 months; where a giraffe died with 20kg of plastic bags in its stomach; where a Sumatran tiger’s digestive tract rotted away after it was routinely fed formaldehyde-laced meat; where an 18-month old lion got his head stuck between steel cables in his cage and strangled to death


UK Daily Mail  The world’s cruellest zoo has claimed another victim after an African lion was found hanging in its cage, it emerged today. The Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia, which has outraged readers around the world after an expose on the treatment of its animals, is being investigated by police following the death of the 18-month-old lion called Michael. But the lion’s body was removed before police were able to examine it and cannot now be found.

In the wake of Michael the lion’s death, zoo spokesman Agus Supangkat denied that his death was caused by zookeepers’ negligence. ‘We are still investigating how the steel cables could entrap the African lion’s head,’ he told the Globe.  ‘Michael was relatively young. He was only one and a half years old.

A MailOnline investigation into the zoo before Christmas found numerous cases of animals living in miserable conditions, including a young elephant that was chained by three legs, one of which was ulcerated because of its tight shackles.

Dozens of petitions were started pleading for the zoo to be closed and animal rights groups have added their voice to the demands. But a management team, headed by the Surabaya Mayor, Mrs Tri Rismaharini, has resisted improvements saying they want to retain the original structures erected by Dutch colonialists in 1916.

UK Daily Mail  The young elephant has tugged at his shackled hind leg so often that the manacles have cut through the flesh, leaving it raw. Not that freeing himself would help. A chain on his left front leg means he can move neither forwards, backwards nor sideways. The elephant’s owner has tethered the youngster because he prefers to tend to his small shop in the grounds of the Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia.


Money comes first. And so, day after day, week after week, the elephant stands there, being released from his chains only at the end of each day.

Anyone finding the scene depressing, and who turns away to look for more happy animals in the zoo would eventually leave, as I did, utterly depressed. Surabaya Zoo has been branded the worst in the world and when I walked through this animal torture ground I was left in no doubt its reputation was well earned.


In another cage, a sad rhinocerous hornbill looks up at the blue sky, trying to take off from its perch, but there is no room to flap its wings. Well over 50 animals have died here in the past three months, says Tony Sumampau, a former member of the zoo’s temporary management team, who had finally left in despair. ‘The keepers have stalls that they run selling food and drinks and it’s more important for them to make money than it is to be taking care of their animals.’

The state of the zoo’s animals came to world-wide attention following the death of a giraffe in 2012 that was found with no less than 20 kilograms of plastic bags in its stomach from people throwing candy bars at it.


The zoo, was opened in 1916 during Dutch colonial rule, and next to nothing has been done to improve it. Instead, more and more animals have been packed in. A report by an independent team set up by Indonesia’s forestry ministry called for the animals be moved to other zoos but nothing has been done. Other zoos refuse to take the animals because of their condition and the fear that many of them carrying diseases.

Sitting alone is another orangutan. I cannot believe what I see – she is chewing on the yellow top of a marker pen someone has thrown at her. She pushes it forward between her lips, then sucks it back into her mouth. I fear she will soon swallow it. Beside her, rats scurry in and out of holes in an embankment.

InfiniteFrogs  For those of you who haven’t heard of this place, it first shot to internet infamy a few years ago, when the Jakarta Post coined the phrase “Zoo of Death” in an article about a deceased giraffe, which was found to have a 40 pound ball of plastic in its stomach. The story was shocking and the name stuck – particularly as Surabaya Zoo kept up the work of killing the wild animals it was meant to protect. Approximately 25 animals per month died or went missing at the zoo.

But the abuse goes back further than this. The East Java Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) had previously conducted an investigation in August 2010, which found that negligent keepers, corruption, and filthy conditions were to blame for most of the animal deaths. It is alleged that zookeepers were stealing meat which they sold to the black market. Animals were also allegedly being stolen by the zookeepers and sold – dead or alive.

The animals who don’t stave to death end up euthanized due to other conditions.

The animals who don’t stave to death end up euthanized due to other conditions.

The zoo shot to stratospheric, “Ted-Bundy-like” infamy in 2012/13, when the story of Melani emerged. Melani, a 15 year old critically endangered Sumatran tiger, had been fed chemically tainted meat for several years, destroying her digestive system and causing her weight to drop to 44 kilograms — half the weight of a healthy tiger. Melani became the poster animal for the cause – the powerfully haunting images of her condition, amidst the backdrop of the disgusting cell in which she was kept, caused an internet storm of protest.

Throughout 2012 and 2013, internet campaigners and animal welfare group Cee4Life raised awareness of Melani’s plight in an effort to shame the Indonesian authorities into taking action. Global petitions containing 184,488 signatures were presented to Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan in in his Jakarta office in July 2013. While at the meeting, the Minister appeared unmoved by the petitions, and the zoo administrators (who were surprise attendees at the meeting) even disputed the evidence presented. They claimed that the photos were fake, and that the animals were treated very well at Surabaya Zoo.

For example on July 13th 2013 under the cover of darkness, zoo staff attempted to clandestinely move four endangered hippos. Two dozen staff surrounded the hippos, and they were beaten with bamboo poles in an attempt to move them, causing facial and neck injuries.



Melani was rescued in June/July 2013, and is now receiving professional care. Dozens of other animals have also been rescued in the second half of 2013, although the Mayor of Surabaya has referred to them as stolen, and alleges that the administrators traded the animals for vehicles and other items.

The barbarity of the hanged lion images may finally have forced the authorities to act. On January 22nd, the Jakarta Globe reported that a high level meeting has resulted in the administrators of the zoo being sacked. “This definitive license (to administer the zoo) will be given to the mayor this week,” Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan said following a meeting with Surabaya Mayor Tri Rismaharini and President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Whether this leads to the improvement of the zoo is not certain. Mayor Rismaharini is deemed as popular with the citizens of Surabaya, who consider her to not be corrupt. However the mayor and her team have limited experience in the care of wild animals, and has often refused access to professionals wanting to better the care of the animals at Surabaya Zoo.


Cee4Life has published an open letter to the mayor begging her to allow professionals access to the animals, to which the mayor has not yet responded. It is also alleged she is refusing to update the outdated and cruel Victorian era enclosures, as she believes it would destroy the atmosphere of the zoo.

Only time will tell if the world’s worst zoo will be closed, or dragged into the modern world. One thing is for sure, the internet community is greatly helping the cause. You can add your voice by signing this author’s petition and the Cee4Life petition.
