Muslims in America give new meaning to the Yiddish term “chutzpah!”

chutzpah-1Seasoned pros at playing the ‘victim’ card, Muslims in America are taking the concept of ‘chutzpah’ to a whole new level by demanding that the U.S. government give them special protection during their pilgrimage to the Hajj in Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Think Progress  (h/t Larry A) A group of American Muslims sent a letter to the U.S. State Department on Tuesday, imploring the government to provide protection against militants and other threats that could endanger them during their religious pilgrimage to Mecca in October.

The letter, signed by 28 different Muslim groups, asked Secretary of State John Kerry to take measures to safeguard Americans participating in this year’s hajj, an annual ritual required of all followers of Islam who have the ability and means to make the journey to Mecca.

“We urge you to take immediate action to protect American citizens who travel overseas to perform one of the five mandatory acts of their faith and ensure that Saudi Arabia addresses this urgent security matter in preparation for the upcoming Hajj pilgrimage,” the letter read.

Signers cited several reasons for sending the letter, but rooted their concern in a 2013 incident when a group of American Muslims were brutally attacked as they took part in the hajj. While staying at a camp outside of Mecca, a band of Lebanese-Australians reportedly confronted the U.S. citizens, which included three women featured in the reality TV show All-American Muslim.

The attackers shouted insults at the Michigan natives, decrying them for being Shia Muslims before strangling one man until his face turned blue and telling the women that they would “rape them all” if they didn’t leave. saudi-arabia-american-muslims-visiting-holy-city-of-mecca-for-the-hajj-get-threatened-and-attacked-by-muslims

“The right to freely practice one’s faith without fear of harassment, intimidation, or violence is a constitutional guarantee, as well as an international human rights norm,” the letter read.

“Every American citizen traveling or living abroad should have full assurance that the U.S. government will come vigorously to his or her defense if they are unjustly detained, attacked, or harassed by local authorities,” the letter read. “These protections, including but not limited to meaningful access to full consular services, must be afforded to all American citizens visiting Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj.”

Hamas fighters captured by Israel blow the whistle on Hamas war crimes

During the summer’s Gaza war, hundreds of Hamas militants surrendered to or were otherwise captured by Israeli forces. In the course of interrogation, many of these prisoners were candid regarding the unlawful tactics of their leaders.

Israel Today  A statement released by the Shin Bet, or Israel Security Agency (the local equivalent of the American FBI) noted that the investigation of these prisoners confirmed that “prominent use was made of mosques and hospitals [in Gaza] as meeting points and hideouts. Worse still was the digging of tunnels and launch sites, and the placing of arsenals, near kindergartens.”

The Shin Bet went on to list a number of the more revealing testimonies, including the names and hometowns of the more chatty prisoners, a move that is certain to get them labeled as “collaborators” back in Gaza.

  • Abdel Rahman Balousha from Khan Younis revealed that the Alsafa and Alabra mosques in his hometown served as meeting and assembly points for Hamas terrorists.

  • Muhammad Ala’a from Khan Younis and Muwaz Abu Tim from Bani Suheila said that they were recruited for Hamas military activity at mosques in their respective hometowns.

  • Muhammad Ramadan from Khan Younis said that his February 2014 training as an anti-tank fighter took place in a hall located beneath the Alshafi mosque. He added that the hall serves as an Izzadin Al-Kassam Brigades training and instruction facility.

  • Muhammad Alqadra from Khan Younis said that several local mosques served as sites to conceal war materiel such as RPGs, heavy PKC machine guns and AK–47s. He added that local schools and hospitals, including the Nasser and Halal hospitals, were also arsenals.

  • Afif Jerakh and Amad Jerakh from Beit Lahiya said that an attack tunnel had been dug close to a kindergarten.

  • Muhammad Abu Daraz from Greater Ibsan said a tunnel in which he worked was begun next to the Alfukhari clinic adjacent to the Abu Daka family home. He said that in the area in Hazara in which he was arrested there is a kindergarten, next to a clinic, to which he was to bring prisoners in the event of a successful kidnapping.

  • Muhammad Alqadra from Khan Younis said that it was well known that senior Hamas leaders and their armed bodyguards, usually in police uniforms, openly hide in hospitals.

  • Marad Amr said that before he was arrested he saw a Hamas Toyota military jeep blocking the entrance to the European hospital in Khan Younis.

Shin Bet insisted that given this evidence, “it is clear…that Hamas knowingly and intentionally operates in and adjacent to civilian areas… Hamas deliberately operates in these locales, thus turning the civilian population into human shields on the assumption that Israel will be blamed for any injury and loss of life.”

BOKO HARAM: “Democracy is worse than homosexuality, worse than sleeping with your mother.” “You are all pagans and we will kill you, even if you do not attack us we will kill you … Allah commands us to kill without pity.”

UnknownThe leader of Nigeria’s Islamofascist group Boko Haram said his fighters now ruled the captured north-eastern town of Gwoza by Islamic law, in the first video to state a territorial claim in more than five years of violent insurrection. His message also contained taunts for Western governments and compared democracy to incest.

SMH  Abubakar Shekau, who leads the insurgents, said in a video that the group would enforce Islamic law in Gwoza, a town of about 250,000 people, in Borno state, about 850 kilometres north-east of the capital, Abuja.

His forces have killed thousands since launching an uprising in 2009, and are seen as the biggest security threat to the continent’s leading energy producer.

In the video, which was released late on Sunday, the militant, who says he is fighting to create an Islamic state in religiously-mixed Nigeria, said his forces had taken control of the hilly border town of Gwoza, near the frontier with Cameroon.

“Allah has granted us success in Gwoza because we have risen to do Allah’s work,” Mr Shekau said, reading out a statement off a notebook, with two masked gunmen on each side of him and three four-wheel-drive vehicles behind him in thinly forested bush.

“Allah commands us to rule Gwoza by Islamic law. In fact, he commands us to rule the rest of the world, not only Nigeria, and now we have started.” “The claim is empty,” Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters said on its Twitter account late Sunday. “The sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Nigerian state is still intact.”

Boko Haram has been intensifying its campaign of violence ahead of elections scheduled for next February. It killed more than 2000 people in the first six months of the year, according to New York-based Human Rights Watch, most of whom had died in gun and bomb attacks on villages in the majority-Muslim north.

Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency said that fighting has displaced more than 400,000 people in the nation of about 170 million.

In an attack on Sunday in the remote north-eastern town of Gamboru.  “They were shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ [God is Greater] and were shooting sporadically,” Alice Adejuwon, a businesswoman and resident of Gamboru, said. “We saw corpses on the streets as we ran out of the town.”

The video includes footage of what appeared to be an attack on Gwoza, showing fighters, backed by armoured personnel carriers, utility vehicles with attached machineguns, and one tank-like vehicle with track wheels and a large gun. Mr Shekau also taunts France, Israel and the US in the video.

OHIO school placed on lockdown after Muslim man threatens to murder children over Israeli-Hamas conflict

RadarAn Ohio school was placed on lockdown Wednesday after a man with a “heavy accent” who identified himself as ‘Mohammed Shehad’ (or Jihad), phoned the school and threatened to murder children with an AK-47 due to the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, according to local police.

Free Beacon  All schools in Pickerington, Ohio, were placed on lockdown after an unknown man made a threatening call to the Pickerington North High School, Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon. The man, who claimed to have an AK-47, said he planned to launch an attack on the school and kill students over his apparent anger at the Middle East conflict, Phalen said.

“The school received a call [at around 11:15 a.m.] from a male with a heavy accent and he indicated that he was going to attack Pickerington North due to attacks on Israel and was going to kill the kids and that he had an AK-47 gun,” Phalen recounted.

“He identified himself as ‘Mohammed Shehad,’” (or Jihad)  and claimed to live in the area, Phalen said, explaining that those who fielded the call were unsure precisely what last name the man provided. “My sense is that due to the way he identified himself it sounds like he was upset at Israel,” though the individual’s exact motivations remain unclear, Phalen said. At this point, authorities “really don’t know what his frame of mind was or what he was thinking.”

Pickerington_Lock_down

All area schools were placed on “exterior lockdown” as a precautionary measure, the Columbus Dispatch reported. School resumed on Thursday and an officer was assigned to Pickerington North. Additional deputies will also be in the area, Phalen said. Fairfield County detectives also are beginning to investigate the matter to determine the individual’s identity. “We have detectives assigned to that; they’re working on trying to trace the phone number and identify the suspect,” Phalen said.

Patrick Poole, a terrorism analyst who lives in the area, said he believed the threat was made by a person upset with Israel’s military action in the Gaza Strip.

“We have had a growing problem here in the Columbus area for years that local law enforcement and the media want to continue to sweep under the carpet,” Poole said. “Not only has Central Ohio been the home of the largest known al-Qaeda cell since 9/11—with several members currently in prison on terrorism charges and at least two deported—we’ve had a number of cases of homegrown jihadists come through town, including al-Shabaab rapper Omar al-Hammami and Little Rock Army recruiting station killer Carlos Bledsoe.”

“An al-Shabaab recruiter and fundraiser from the area was killed in a firefight in Mogadishu in 2010, and we know of several cases of young men who have left from Columbus to join the Somali terrorist group,” Poole said. “One of the original online jihadist forum operators, Sarfaraz Jamal, grew up in the area and initially ran his operation from his Worthington home.”

Additionally, “we just had a pro-Hamas rally at the statehouse a week and a half ago, a regular feature here in central Ohio whenever there is conflict in that part of the world,” Poole noted. “In fact, two of our local Hamas activists are currently in prison in Egypt. Now that the threat is targeting area school children, hopefully it will begin to wake people up to the scope of the problem.”

“Nothing else matters.” How an Israeli father shielded his family from Hamas mortar rocket attack

Jehan Berman immigrated to Israel from Belgium and now lives on Israel’s border with Gaza. Last week, during a birthday party for his 3-year-old son, a mortar landed just outside the kindergarten where they were celebrating. Unable to make it to the bomb shelter, Jehan shielded his wife and child with his body as the rocket fell and was wounded by shrapnel, which embedded itself into his back.

“Leave us alone. I know people who can put a bomb on you,” says Boston Marathon Bombers’ sister, who apparently is a Muslim terrorist, too

A sister of the Boston Marathon bombers was busted in New York City for allegedly threatening to blow up her live-in lover’s baby mama. Ailina Tsarnaeva, who lives in North Bergen, NJ, allegedly phoned the woman at her Harlem home on Monday and warned her to keep her distance or face explosive consequences. 

NY Post  Law-enforcement sources said Tsarnaeva’s boyfriend, George Briones, is currently embroiled in a bitter custody dispute with his ex over their three kids.

The woman told cops about Tsarnaeva’s alleged call, and Tsarnaeva turned herself in at Harlem’s 30th Precinct station house, where she was charged with aggravated harassment and later released, sources said.

No one answered at the alleged victim’s apartment Wed­nesday evening, and her mom refused to comment when reached by phone. But a neighbor in the building said the woman had obvious problems with her love life.

“I heard her talking with a friend in the lobby, [saying] that you cannot trust men, they are nothing but trouble,” the neighbor said. Tsarnaeva’s arrest marks at least her second brush with the law, following a 2011 charge tied to a counterfeiting case in Boston.

Prosecutors alleged that she knew the customers who left a fake bill to pay their tab at an Applebee’s restaurant in Dorchester, and that she lied to a detective who questioned her. Tsarnaeva skipped bail after getting busted on an obstruction charge. The case against her was later dismissed, according to a published report.

Many of Hollywood’s biggest stars have just called Islam an ideology of hatred and genocide

10_2014-08-24Nearly 200 entertainers (including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and many others) have signed a statement condemning the seventh article of the charter of Hamas as an “‘deology of hatred and genocide.’ The problem is that the quotation in article seven was taken directly from Muhammad himself. Hence, all of these entertainers have condemned Muhammad, Islam, and the Quran.

SHOCKER! Saudi Foreign Minister: “We must denounce our hatred toward Israel and begin to normalize ties with Jewish nation”

1408613312ur4vgw0pepmbldmcunhjSpeaking on the sidelines of the world assembly of Islamic scholars in Jeddh, Saud bin Faisal Al Saud said that the Middle-East needs peace and co-existence more than ever and Saudi Arabia as a leading Islamic country is ready to make sacrifices in peace negotiations and encourages President Abbas to follow the same policy.

AWD News  (h/t Roy DanielReferring to the ongoing war in Gaza strip, the Saudi foreign Minster stressed that Hamas authority is the sole responsible for Palestinian calamity and they must brought before the law. The Saudi official further added that the Arab World increasingly is frustrated with Hamas which is seeking more wars.

14086132181301378970

In recent day Israel’s air-strikes against Gaza Strip drew many condemnations from the Arab oil-rich states of the Persian Gulf, while Saudi media is increasingly open in criticizing defiant Hamas for resisting Israeli aggression against impoverished Palestinian enclave.

Media in Saudi Arabia and Egypt blame Hamas’ actions for Israeli war and prioritizing conflict over the safety of the Gazan population and criticized the leadership for waging war far from the conflict, a Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) report shows.

After Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal criticized Arab inaction in Gaza, Saudi Al- okaz daily columnists responded emphatically. “[Meshaal], we are tired of defending the [Palestinian] cause that you have sold for cheap to an MB (Muslim Brotherhood) gang whose way you followed even though they have lost their [own] way,” wrote columnist Abdul-Hamdi Razaq. He also called Meshaal out for living in luxurious Qatari hotels instead of fighting in Gaza.

Hamas is losing its legitimacy because it was sacrificing Palestinians while using financial aid to promote its interests, wrote Al-Watan columnist Abdullah Al-Sayyid.

ISIS demands $6.6 million ransom and release of a convicted terrorist for American woman aid worker in Syria

A third American hostage held by ISIS has been identified as a 26-year-old bleeding heart American woman who was kidnapped a year ago while doing humanitarian relief work in Syria.

(She’s probably worth a lot of money to them now, as no doubt, they have her working as a sex slave)

rape-kill

ABC News  The terror group is demanding $6.6 million and the release of U.S. prisoners for the life of the young woman, whom a representative for the family requested not be identified.

She is the third of at least four Americans who were known to be held by ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. American journalist James Foley was executed by the group in a video that appeared online last week. Another writer, Steven Sotloff, was seen alive but under duress in the same footage.

In addition to the multi-million dollar ransom, the terror group has also demanded that the U.S. release Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT-trained al-Qaeda affiliated neuroscientist who was convicted by the U.S. in 2010 of trying to kill U.S. officials two years before, according to a supporter of Siddiqui who has been in contact with the hostage’s family.

MINNESOTASTAN: Hamas’ American affiliate CAIR says “jump.” Obama and Holder say, “how high?”

60_416307505140894_305821740_n-viThe U.S. attorney’s office and the U.S. Department of Justice filed suit Wednesday against the city of St. Anthony, contending its City Council violated federal law by rejecting a proposed Islamic indoctrination center in 2012. U.S. Attorney Andy Luger said his office found that the council’s decision to deny the Abu Huraira Islamic Center the right to worship in the St. Anthony Business Center violated the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act passed by Congress.

Star Tribune  Federal authorities are asking for an injunction from a federal judge ordering St. Anthony to permit the group to use the basement of the business center.

foxnation-20100225-dptofjihad

In June 2012, the council voted down the proposed center, concluding that a religious and cultural center was incompatible with the site’s light-industrial zoning. The council’s 4-1 decision went against a city planning commission recommendation to approve the 15,000-square-foot center in the old Medtronic headquarters at 3055 Old Highway 8.

The council decision came after some St. Anthony residents voiced their opposition to the proposed center. More than 150 people packed the meeting, and some made disparaging remarks about the Muslim faith. Jim Roth, the lone council member to back the Islamic center, predicted at the time of the vote that the council’s rejection would spawn a lawsuit. Roth said he was “embarrassed” and “stunned” by some of the remarks made.

On Wednesday, St. Anthony officials continued to defend the council’s action, saying that the rejection of the Islamic center was based purely on zoning issues. “Religious uses of any type are allowed in the vast majority of the city. They are just not allowed in the roughly five percent of the city reserved for industrial uses,” said St. Anthony City Attorney Jay Lindgren.

Lindgren said the denial “was not based on discrimination at all,” but rather “on the conclusion that religious assembly of any type is not allowed in an industrial zone. “An industrial zone is designed to create jobs and be an economic engine,” he said.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Minneapolis has spent two years investigating the matter, with its spokeswoman saying at one point that it had sought to reach an out-of-court agreement with the parties.

At the heart of the federal suit is the allegation that the City Council treated an application for a conditional-use permit to assemble at the business center on less-than-equal terms from other, nonreligious conditional-use permits for assembly. While prohibiting the Islamic center in the light industrial zone, it allowed for a union hall with banquet facilities to be rented by the public, the suit said. The city permitted the union hall because the light industrial zone allowed for “assemblies, meeting lodges and convention halls.”

The Minnesota Chapter of terror-linked CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) had asked federal authorities to investigate whether the city violated the federal law on religious land use. In August 2012, two months after the council’s rejection, the Muslim group proposing the Islamic center purchased the former Medtronic Inc. headquarters for $1.9 million.

The suit contends that the Islamic center conducts an “assembly” and therefore barring it violates federal law. Lindgren said there was a similar denial of a Christian-based organization around that same time as well.

Mosques and Islamic school projects have faced opposition across the state. Some community members opposed projects in Plymouth, Willmar, Bloomington and Blaine, as well as out of state as in Murfreesboro, TN, where a 2-year hostile battle raged, but all were reluctantly approved, thanks to pressure from the Feds.

Screen-Shot-2014-05-01-at-3.21.08-PM

The U.S. attorney’s office said that the treatment of the center’s backers added substantial burdens to its members practicing their faith. “Abu Huraira members’ ability to exercise their religion is limited by their current worship site options, including, but not limited to the fact that members in the northern Twin Cities are burdened from praying together based on the lengthy of time it takes to travel to the worship centers in south Minneapolis,” the U.S. attorney’s office said in a statement.

“Moreover,” the statement said, “prayer space at locations in Minneapolis are too small to accommodate members, many of whom often have to pray in hallways or entryways, and hold multiple pray sessions in shifts to accommodate crowds.”

Ban On Street Prayers Comes Into Effect Across France

After the council denied the permit in St. Anthony, three churches in St. Anthony held an interfaith meeting between Christian sympathizers and Muslim leaders in July 2012 to address some of the negative comments made at the council meeting.

“Some things had been said at the City Council meeting that sounded unwelcoming and unfriendly. There was a desire to show a different face on things,” said Rev. Paul La Fontaine, with St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church which co-sponsored the event. He said he was surprised by news of the federal lawsuit.

Asked about the community’s perception of the Muslim faith, he said: “In light of recent events overseas, there is a certain concern.  St. Anthony is a “first-ring” suburb of Minneapolis that’s just 2.35 square miles with 8,200 people.
