NYC ‘Credible’ Terror Threat involves possible dirty bomb

Authorities are concerned about a Times Square strike as well as tunnels and bridges.

CBS  Federal and local authorities have beefed up security after receiving intelligence about a credible threat. The alleged plot by al Qaeda involves detonating car bombs on bridges and in tunnels in New York and Washington D.C. to coincide with the anniversary of 9/11.

Security was equally tight at Penn Station, where armed guards were keeping watch over travelers as Transportation Security Administration agents performed random bag checks, swiping packs for gunpowder.

The crossroads of the world came to a grinding halt at various times Friday because for police Times Square has become the ground zero of the latest terror threat.

Some of the information on the latest threat could be coming from Younis al-Mauritani, the man hand-picked by Osama bin Laden to develop terror targets in the United States. He’s a “most wanted list” senior al Qaeda operative who was arrested in Pakistan last week with his computer, BlackBerry and other tools.

The intelligence includes information that al Qaeda wants to finish the job that started with Faisal Shahzad’s failed car bomb attempt in May 2010.

Intelligence sources said the terrorists could be trying to make a dirty bomb this time my mixing radiological isotopes with an explosive device. That’s why the NYPD is deploying all kinds of radiation detectors, panel trucks with sophisticated instruments.


EGYPTIANS attack Israeli Embassy Cairo

A building housing Israel’s embassy in Cairo has been stormed by protesters who tore down one of the outer embassy walls and threw thousands of documents from the embassy’s windows. Police do little.

Al Jazeera  The angry also replaced the neighbouring country’s flag with their own after breaking in on Friday night. Hundreds of Egyptian soldiers backed by armoured cars were rushed to the embassy district and clashed with the protesters who torched police trucks and attacked regional police headquarters nearby.

Just past 3am local time, the Egyptian health ministry said there had officially been 520 injuries as a result of clashes around the embassy. An earlier report said one person had died of a heart attack.

The group that swarmed the embassy had left a mass rally at nearby Tahrir Square, where organised protesters called for reforms by the military, which now governs Egypt.”Thousands of documents were being thrown out of the windows, but it’s unclear which floor they were coming from,” our correspondent Sherine Tadros said.

“Indications are that it’s pretty much a chaotic situation. Protesters set on fire two police vehicles.” “The military is actually starting to fire live ammunition into the air. Once again, protesters are trying to storm the [Egyptian] security headquarters.

Israel’s ambassador, Yitzhak Levanon, his family and other embassy staff rushed to Cairo airport and left on a plane for Israel, Egyptian state television and airport officials said.

A White House statement said that “the President expressed his great concern about the situation at the embassy, and the security of the Israelis serving there”.

Last month, Egyptians staged huge protests outside the embassy and called for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador over the border deaths of Egyptian policemen killed as Israel hunted a group of attackers.

Terrorist Front Group CAIR joins brother Obama in declaring 9/11 a ‘Day of Service’ (to other muslims)

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Michigan is launching a billboard and digital campaign to honor Muslim Americans who’ve served their country and communities following the 9/11 attacks.

Obama’s Domestic Muslim Army  On the tragic day of 9/11 our nation was shaken to its core. American Muslims too were a part of that effort to re-strengthen the fabric of our society after that tragic day and were on the front lines in saving lives at Ground Zero and contributing back to society to restore the collective strength and psyche of our nation. (Only ONE first responder was a muslim)

The Remembering Through Service campaign is an initiative launched by CAIR-MI to tell the stories of American Muslims. (But nobody wants to hear about muslims. We hear way too much about them as it is)

Ten years after 9/11 it still goes unnoticed that American Muslims were victims of 9/11 as well as first responder. (Oh yeah, pull out that ‘victim’ card again) The Remembering Through Service campaign is intended to encourage unity, decrease polarity, and to highlight the contributions of American Muslims as productive patriotic citizens who make enormous contributions to our society. American Muslims embrace diversity and have been a part of America for well over 200 years. (NO, they haven’t)

As united Americans we all should work to change the vitriolic narrative of hate and intolerance that has become prevalent in discourse regarding Islam and Muslims in America. (Your actions only cause Americans to hate you more) Working with people of all faiths, our coalition partners, and Muslim organizations, CAIR-MI aims to help dispel stereotypes (accurate portrayals) and misinformation (facts) in order to show the true face of American Muslims. It is our sincere hope that this initiative will encourage more peace and increased unity among all Americans. (Only after we turn this country into an islamic state)

MUSLIM PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS just for the month of August 2011

This series, developed to collate some—by no means all—of the most extreme instances of Muslim persecution of Christians that surface each month, serves two purposes:

1) To document that which the mainstream media does not: habitual, if not chronic, Muslim persecution of Christians.

2) To show that such persecution is not “random,” but systematic, interrelated, and ultimately rooted in a worldview inspired by Sharia Law.

HUDSON NY  As will become evident, whatever the of persecution that took place, it typically fits under a specific theme, including hatred for churches and other Christian symbols; sexual abuse of Christian women; forced conversions to Islam; apostasy and blasphemy laws; theft and plunder in lieu of jizya, the additional tax that can be imposed on by Muslims on non-Muslims in a Muslin state; overall expectations for Christians to behave like cowed dhimmis, or second-class “protected” citizens; and simple violence. Oftentimes it is a combination of the aforementioned.

Because these accounts of persecution span different ethnicities, languages, and locales –even in the West, wherever there are Muslims—it is clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam—whether the strict application of Sharia, or the supremacist culture borne by it.

Categorized by theme, August’s batch of Muslim persecutions of Christians includes (but is not limited to) the following events, listed according to theme and in alphabetical order by country, not necessarily severity of the event:

Attacks on Christian Symbols: Churches and Bibles

Indonesia: Two churches were set aflame; officials downplayed these cases of arson by arguing that the buildings were “only made of board” and not real churches. A mayor also proclaimed that churches cannot be built on streets with Muslim names.

Iran: Officials launched a Bible burning campaign, confiscating and destroying some 7,000 Bibles; many were publicly burned. Likening their tiny Christian minority to the “Taliban and parasites,” the regime also “cracked down” on Christians (who make up less than 1% of the entire population), arresting many; their whereabouts remain unknown.

Iraq: Two churches were bombed: the first attack damaged the church and wounded 23; the second damaged the church (a third church was targeted but the bomb was defused before detonating).

Nigeria: Two churches were bombed, including a Baptist church no longer in use due to previous Muslim attacks; when officials arrested Islamist leaders, a third Catholic church was torched.

Apostasy and Forced Conversions

Eritrea: At least eight Christians have died in prisons, most under severe conditions and torture, simply for refusing to recant Christianity.

India: A female who was formerly stripped and beaten by a Muslim mob for converting to Christianity, continues to receive severe threats to return to Islam or die; likewise, Muslims held three Christian women “threatening to beat and burn them alive if they continued worshipping Christ.”

Iran: A Christian pastor in Iran remains behind bars, where he is being tortured; he is awaiting execution for refusing to recant Christianity.

Malaysia: religious police raided a church when it “found evidence of proselytisation towards Muslims” and “receiving information that there were Muslims who attended a breaking-of-fast event at the church”; a Facebook campaign created to support the raid and to “prevent apostasy” has already drawn support from 23,000 people.

Norway: A Muslim convert to Christianity was tortured with boiling water and told by fellow Muslim inmates “If you do not return to Islam, we will kill you”; if deported to Afghanistan, he risks death by stoning for leaving Islam.

Pakistan: Muslims openly abducted a 14-year-old Christian girl at gunpoint saying she had to convert to Islam. Another Christian woman who was abducted, drugged, and tortured for two years—all while being informed that she had converted to Islam—happily made her escape. In both cases, the police, as is usual, are siding with the Muslim abductors. Most recently, two Christians returning from church were attacked by Muslims and beaten with iron rods for refusing to convert to Islam or pay “protection” (jizya) money.

Sudan: A 16 year old Christian girl finally escaped from her Muslim kidnappers, who “beat, raped and tried to force her to convert from Christianity to Islam.” Whenever she tried to pray, she was beaten again and called an “infidel”; when her mother went to the police, they told her to convert to Islam before they returned her child.

Uganda: In accordance with Islam’s Hanafi School of law, a Muslim father locked his 14-year-old daughter in a room for several months without food or water simply because she embraced Christianity; when rescued, she weighed 44 pounds.

General Oppression, Violence, and Murder of Christians

Bangladesh: Church leaders, including an elderly pastor, were severely beaten in a police station for protesting that Muslims had illegally seized and occupied a Christian home. A previously tortured Christian activist is in hiding in Honk Kong, even as his wife and children face death threats from Muslims in the neighborhood.

Egypt: Soon after breaking their Ramadan fast, thousands of Muslims rampaged throughout a predominantly Christian village, firing automatic weapons, looting and throwing Molotov Cocktails at several homes. They beat a priest, then plundered and torched his home. Another Copt was murdered in his home, which was then ransacked. Separately, a Copt was savagely attacked by seven Muslims in front of a police station; he lost one eye and required 20 stitches to his head. Girls leaving church were sexually harassed by Muslims, who hurled stones at the church; they shattered five windows.

Nigeria: In what is being called a “silent killing,” ten Christians were slain by Muslims seeking to expunge Christianity from northern Nigeria; eyewitnesses insist that the army is assisting and enabling the slayings.

Pakistan: A Christian family consisting of 26 people, including women and children, lived in slavery for over 30 years, forced to labor on a farm belonging to a wealthy Muslim landowner; they only recently managed to regain their freedom, through the aid of the Catholic Church. A Muslim mob attacked a group of Christians watching a movie about Jesus, and destroyed the projector. A Christian man was beaten unconscious for celebrating Independence Day. He was told by Muslims, “How can you celebrate when you are Christian? Convert to Islam if you want to join the celebration.”

Somalia: Al-Shabab (“The Youth”) is intentionally preventing food aid from reaching the nation’s miniscule Christian minority: “Any Somali that the Islamists suspect to be a Christian, or even a friend of Christians, does not receive any food aid.”

Sudan: A “humanitarian crisis is unfolding” in Sudan’s border region where Christians and their churches are being targeted in a systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by North Sudan’s Islamist regime.

United Kingdom: A Muslim family was terrorized and threatened with death because their daughter married a Christian — an act considered a crime according to Sharia. Note: a man marrying a non-Muslim woman is permitted.

Uzbekistan: Authorities continue to pressure churches and Christians, fabricating evidence to punish or limit Christians’ ability to practice their faith, and subjecting them to excessive fines, false accusations, as well as confiscating their Christian literature.

These are just some of the assaults to which Christians have been subjected under Islam that made it to the non-mainstream media last month. Then there are the countless atrocities that never make it to any media—the stories of persistent, quiet misery that only the victims and local Christians know—such as the recent revelation that a 2-year-old girl was savagely raped in Pakistan because her Christian father refused to convert to Islam: it took five years for this story to surface. How many never surface?

SPAIN: Muslims are poisoning dogs because they consider them to be filth

The Nature Protection Service and police in the Catalan city of Lérida have confirmed that they are investigating the deaths by poisoning of at least 15 dogs in the La Bordeta area.

Islam vs Europe  La Bordeta is known for its dense population of immigrants, many of the Mohammedan persuasion. Mohammedans consider dogs to be “ritually unclean” and anti-dog campaigns have been noted on various Spanish-language Muslim websites. There are also reports of dog owners being threatened and harassed by Muslims while taking their pets for a walk.
















BREAKING NEWS on credible al-Qaeda threat around 9/11 Anniversary

The threat, said to involve potential car bombs, would target New York City or Washington, D.C., sources said. Authorities have obtained what they believe is information on possible suspects tied to central Al Qaeda, but they have not necessarily determined names of possible suspects.

FOX NEWS  “As we know from the intelligence gathered from the [bin Laden] raid, Al Qaeda has shown an interest in important dates and anniversaries, such as 9/11,” Department of Homeland Security spokesman Matt Chandler said in a written statement. “In this instance, it’s accurate that there is specific, credible but unconfirmed threat information.”

According to a senior U.S. official with knowledge of the threat, “People are aggressively pursuing leads,” and it is “specific enough to elicit worry.” Another senior U.S. official stressed the threat is still “unconfirmed” so it is being chased down and investigated. It was identified in intelligence received from overseas.

U.S. officials have been saying for days that there is no known credible threat related to the anniversary. But when asked Thursday by reporters whether that’s still the case, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano seemed to at first hesitate.

Then she said: “It is still the case that we don’t have something that would reach that standard, but we still have lots of chatter out there. And we take every bit of that seriously and track it down. … The date is important because it’s 9/11. But as I said, in the intel world there’s lots of chatter and we’re taking it all seriously. Should there be something that rises to the level where I have to issue a threat advisory, we will issue a threat advisory.”

One U.S. official said that the intelligence came from tribal areas of Pakistan. The source of the reporting is known to the US intelligence community and “has a track record,” as one source put it.

OBAMA Justice Department goons force mosque on community that doesn’t want it

The U.S. Justice Department strong arms Henrico County, VA, over the county’s alleged violation of a federal anti-discrimination law when it refused to rezone property for a group of potential muslim jihadists who wanted to build a mosque.

(BURN IT DOWN! I am sick of these ragheads destroying our neighborhoods with their temples of terror)

Washington Post  The Justice Department claimed the county’s actions violated the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA), which prohibits religious discrimination in land use and zoning decisions. The settlement requires the county to allow the mosque to be built without improper interference or delay.

The case arose in late 2008 when local Muslims were denied the ability to build the first mosque in the county, just north of Richmond. The Muslims filed suit, charging that the denial of the request was “arbitrary, capricious, and unreasonable.” (No it wasn’t, they just hate muslims)

The Justice Department joined the case in March 2010 and found evidence that the request to build had been denied on the basis of hostility toward Muslims. The county had never turned down a rezoning application submitted by one of its 209 Christian churches, government attorneys said. (Well if you think they were hostile to Muslims then, wait’ll you see what happens now)

The settlement requires Henrico County to publicize its nondiscrimination policies and to provide training on RLUIPA to all county officials involved in land use matters.


GERMANY: Two Muslim terrorist suspects arrested in Berlin for planning a chemical attack

Berlin police searched a mosque in the capital after arresting two suspects on charges of acquiring chemicals for a bomb attack in a raid in Kreuzberg and Neukoelln districts.

Freedom Current  (H/T Maria) –A police spokesman said the suspects, who were from Lebanon and Gaza, had been under investigation for the past few months, adding that police seized several coolants and acid normally used in farming. Authorities started their investigation after chemical companies who had received the men’s orders called police.

According to the public prosecutor’s office, the probe against the men was launched amid fears that they were possibly preparing a major criminal act against the state. The mosque in the Wedding neighborhood was searched because the two men occasionally spent their nights there.

TRIAL OF ‘IRVINE 11’ – The Muslim students who tried to shut down the free speech of the Israeli Ambassador

Prosecutors and defense attorneys both argued free-speech rights during opening statements in the criminal trial against Muslim college students accused of plotting to disrupt a speech by the Israeli ambassador to the United States.

Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren

LA TIMES  Prosecutors and defense attorneys both argued free-speech rights Wednesday during opening statements in the criminal trial against Muslim college students accused of plotting to disrupt a speech by the Israeli ambassador to the United States.

Prosecutors said the so-called Irvine 11 “shut down” Ambassador Michael Oren, preventing him from freely exchanging ideas with those who went to hear him speak at UC Irvine on Feb. 8, 2010. Defense attorneys argued that the students expressed political views in a legal protest and that prosecuting them infringes on their rights.

Orange County Deputy Dist. Atty. Dan Wagner said the defendants orchestrated a protest that interrupted Oren’s speech every few seconds by shouting scripted lines and calling him a war criminal.

“They didn’t want to have an exchange of ideas to see who was telling the truth and who was not,” Wagner said. “What their intention was, make no mistake, was to shut him down.” 


Wagner presented jurors with what he called a “batting order” of what prosecutors contend was the planned conspiracy for the protesters to end Oren’s speech.”Usually people in society know what is and isn’t expected,” Wagner said, “… and it happens in this case there were pretty explicit rules given before the talk.”

He said UC Irvine students had been told, ” ‘Yes, we expect civil debate on campus and we relish that…. But we will expect nothing less than civility and courtesy that is becoming this situation.’ 

The loud and raucous bagheads and ragheads at the Ambassador's speech

The defendants are charged with misdemeanor conspiracy to commit a crime and misdemeanor disruption of a meeting. Seven of them are UC Irvine students and three are enrolled atUC Riverside. 

The first of the six defense attorneys, Daniel Mayfield, addressed jurors with a word written in

Officers arresting the IslamoFascists

green: “time.” He told jurors about the time Oren took to visit the university and the time the defendants had to plan their protest within the limits of the law. 

Defense attorney Reem Salahi then recited to the jury what the students had shouted, including, “Michael Oren, propagating murder is not free speech.”

“The question before you is whether these students committed crimes when they discussed logistics and how to protest Ambassador Oren,” she told the jurors, adding that the students did it “peacefully, albeit rudely, before walking out.”

Before Wednesday’s proceedings, a UC Irvine professor, a defendant’s father and members of the Southern California interfaith community addressed the media and accused Dist. Atty. Tony Rackauckas of prosecuting the students for political reasons — singling them out because they are Muslim.

What should be done with every muslim in this country

Moutaz Herzallah, whose son Taher is among the defendants, is originally from Gaza and said he immigrated to the United States “to have peace, dignity and honor.” But Rackauckas, he said, “threw the Constitution in the trash” when he pressed charges against the students.

DIVINE PROVIDENCE? 500-ton crane collapses at National Cathedral, right before Obama is scheduled to speak there

This is just one day after it was widely reported that several Muslims will participate in the Washington DC Cathedral’s memorial for the 9/11 terror attacks. But not one single evangelical Christian (Protestant) was invited.

YESTERDAY’S STORY: 911-religious-observance-at-the-national-cathedral-in-washington-dc-will-have-lots-of-muslims-but-no-protestants

The crane was working to repair damage to the cathedral caused by the Aug. 23 East Coast earthquake which followed a quran reading by an imam that took place inside the Cathedral a few weeks before.

THE BLAZE – The large crane flipped backward around 11 a.m. Wednesday and tipped over into the parking lot. The crane damaged at least three cars and cathedral buildings. Fire officials said a crane operator was taken to a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.

The collapse came just four days before a scheduled speech by President Barack Obama inside the cathedral to observe the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The speech is the planned highlight of a three-day series of events scheduled to start Friday at the cathedral.

No decision had been made as of Wednesday afternoon about whether the commemoration, which also includes a memorial concert and interfaith vigil, would go on as planned, said Richard Weinberg, a spokesman for the cathedral.

The crane also fell near Church House, which houses members of the diocese, and poses a risk to the building. All 20 people inside the buildings when the crane collapsed were not hurt, Weinberg said.

Tarek Fatah, a loyal Canadian patriot who happens to be Muslim, agrees with PM Stephen Harper’s concern about the Islamic threat

Tarek Fatah,  journalist and founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, lambasts white liberals who are apoplectic  over Harper’s remarks. “The comments of Prime Minister Harper should be saluted. He’s the first Western leader who has come up with the clarity that has been missing in the last ten years.”

“Had Prime Minister Harper been the President of the United States we would have won the War on Terror by now. But instead we’ve got someone in the White House today who’s apologizing, and in fact giving the impression that it was the United States that attacked Muslims, not vice versa.”

(In response to leftie lawyer, Paul Champ) Fatah states, “These shari’a Bolsheviks, these bleeding-heart white liberals are a dime a dozen in Canada, and what they do not understand is that as a Muslim I am the first line of defense – the Islamists will get me and slit my throat long before Mr. Champ ever comes into the picture. I would gladly exchange my position with his white privilege and then discuss this issue. Let him go to Pakistan.”

MUST SEE! Swiss MP Oskar Freysinger asks, “Have we all gone mad?”

“We are fighting against an Islamic dogma that despises all humanity and wants to push us back into barbarity. It is making Christianity extinct.”

Europe News  Further, Freysinger ridiculed the fact that we let a totalitarian political ideology take roots with only symbolic resistance, like the 2009 ban on erecting minarets in Switzerland. The reality on the ground is that Islamists are permitted to organize themselves according to their anti-democratic ideology, just like in Turkey where the secular heritage of Kemal Atatürk is now effectively dismantled, without any objections from the West, not even a cancellation of the Turkish EU membership negotiations. One may wonder if our leaders have become mad or blind.



OH, BOO HOO! Terrorist Front Group CAIR representative blubbers over examples of ‘intolerance’ toward Muslim students in Broward County Schools

Appearing before the Broward County School Board, Nezar Hamze, the executive director of CAIR in South Florida, made an emotional plea for implementing Islamic training for Broward teachers, principals and students. Hamze is the same schmuck who mouthed off at Allen West at a Town Meeting.

(Islamic training for teachers and students? Is he kidding? Somebody should have smacked this drama queen. How dare he?)

Red Broward (H/T Janie) – Truly pathetic. Hamze tearfully recounted moments of “intolerance” at Broward Schools:

 * teachers mocking Islamic students at prayer

 * students throwing paper airplanes at Muslim students saying “that’s for 9/11.”

 * During Ramadan, a principal forced a Muslim student to sit in the lunch room; the same principal said it was not healthy for a student to fast.

 * Muslim students were not allowed to pray together.

Hamze said “education is best deterrent” to intolerant behavior. The board members do not comment on these public statements, but Nora Rupert thanked Hamze for his courage. (Oh please)

Hamze has been a constant critic of Congressman Allen West and other local Republicans. West recently responded to a Hamze request with a one word answer–”Nuts!”
