KUDOS TO PUTIN: Showing the world how Russia controls the Muslim problem in Crimea

36hzweUnlike Crimea’s ethnic Russian majority, most Muslim Tatars resisted Russia’s annexation of the Black Sea peninsula. They fielded patrols to prevent Russian soldiers, APCs, pro-Russian paramilitary squads and Cossacks from entering their villages, even using an Android app to turn their smartphones into walkie-talkies that provided instant communication with hundreds of people.

Al-Jazeera  Moscow responded by exiling community leaders, banning rallies, closing down Tatar media outlets, and paralysing the work of the Mejlis, an informal Tatar parliament. At least 15 Tatars and pro-Ukrainian activists were kidnapped or went missing, one was found dead with traces of torture, another one allegedly hanged himself in a desolate barn.

Hundreds of Muslims were detained, interrogated, and fined for blocking highways during protest rallies. There were attempts to set two mosques afire, and several more have been vandalised. 

Many Muslims complain that during searches officers force their way in, break down doors and furniture, and harass and humiliate them in front of their wives and children, according to more than a dozen people interviewed by Al Jazeera.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO: At least 50 people massacred by axe-wielding Muslim jihadists

The horrific slaughter happened yesterday near the Ugandan border around 10km from the town of Beni, where the army and UN peacekeepers are stationed. Government officials blamed the massacre on the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a Ugandan Islamic militant group. The Christian population of Congo is estimated to be as high as 90%.

24Tanzania (h/t Susan K)  Witnesses said the killings were carried out by men in uniforms posing as soldiers. The massacre happened near the Ugandan border around 6 miles (10km) from the town of Beni, where army and UN troops are stationed.

More than 200 people have been killed near Beni since early October by the ADF Islamic militants, official say.

It is not yet known exactly how many people died in the latest onslaught, reports the BBC’s Maud Jullien in Kinshasa. However, one woman who managed to flee said she counted at least 50 bodies, our correspondent adds. Amisi Kalonda, the regional administrator, told the BBC that nine bodies had been retrieved so far.  He said the dead were spread out across the forest and that searches were still ongoing.

UN officials, who have been repeatedly criticized for failing to stem the violence, say they have increased their military presence in the area since October. But a senior UN source told the BBC that the organization did not have the capacity to protect all the civilians in the area.

The ADF was formed in 1996 by a puritanical Muslim sect in the Ruwenzori mountains of western Uganda. Peace agreements last year have failed to end violence in the east.

And while we’re in Africa, Boko Haram slaughters 48 more Nigerian fisherman near Chad, slitting many of their throats.

Seventh and latest ISIS video from British hostage John Cantlie

In this video, Cantlie is whining about the U.S. spending tens of millions of dollars to try and rescue the hostages, only to fail when the hostages were moved to another location. His biggest gripe is that the American and British governments refuse to pay ransom or do a prisoner exchange to get them out.

Too damn bad, you went to Syria voluntarily even after being warned it was too dangerous. Hopefully, your beheading video will be the next one we post.

ANOTHER OBAMA FOREIGN POLICY FAILURE! Islamic State (ISIS) seizes control of Libyan city of Derna

Next stop Benghazi, then Tripoli, then on to Europe?

141118142750-derna-libya-locator-map-story-top

ISIS is now in complete control of the city of Derna in Libya with a, population of about 100,000, not far from the Egyptian border and just about 200 miles from the southern shores of the European Union. Situation now much more dire than when Ghadaffi was in power.

The fighters are taking advantage of political chaos to rapidly expand their presence westwards along the coast. The sources say the Derna branch of ISIS counts 800 fighters and operates half a dozen camps on the outskirts of the town, as well as larger facilities in the nearby Green Mountains, where fighters from across North Africa are being trained. It has been bolstered by the return to Libya from Syria and Iraq of up to 300 Libyan jihadists who were part of ISIS’ al Battar Brigade — deployed at first in Deir Ezzor in Syria and then Mosul in Iraq.

CANADA deports Muslim synagogue bomber back to France

A Muslim Ottawa university instructor who is a suspect in the deadly 1980 Paris bombing has been extradited to France after the Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal on Thursday. Hassan Diab’s lawyer, Donald Bayne, Bayne said “Diab didn’t get a chance to see his family before he left and his wife is beside herself with grief because of it.”

French authorities allege Diab was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. They also claim he took part in the 1980 bombing of a Paris synagogue that killed four people and injured more than 40 others. Diab, a Canadian citizen, has repeatedly denied the allegations. He and his legal team appealed an extradition order over what they describe as crucial questions about the use of untested intelligence in a criminal prosecution.

CTV News Upon arrival in France, Diab has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with a deadly 1980 bombing of a Paris synagogue. He is now facing multiple charges, including first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, and destruction of property with an explosive or incendiary substance, his lawyer, Stephane Bonifassi, said.

ROME: Riot police try to stop violence between locals and illegal alien North African and Bengali Muslim invaders

‘Racial’ tensions have exploded in Rome’s suburbs after locals chanting pro-Mussolini slogans attacked a Muslim illegal immigrant holding centre. Police responded with baton charges and tear gas. Locals are calling for the building in the Tor Sapienza district to be closed after blaming the illegals it houses for “insupportable levels of street crime in the area.”

Sign says "Enough of uncivilized immigrants"

Sign says “Enough of uncivilized immigrants”

Independent (h/t Susan K & Maria J)  But the nastier side of the protests were apparent on Tuesday night with hundreds of people chanting: “The blacks have to go,” and dozens more shouting: “Long live Il Duce (Mussolini)”. The 36 North African and Bengali Muslim illegals inside pleaded with police to be led away to safety, according to Corriere Della Seranewspaper. A few hours earlier one of the illegals was attacked in the street.

The violence in Tor Sapienza began simmering on Monday night with hooded men throwing stones at the Sorriso reception centre in Viale Giorgio Morandi. On Tuesday night the situation escalated dramatically. At around 10pm around 50 people, at the head of a 250-strong crowd, attacked the centre with rocks and petrol bombs.

Guerrilla a Tor Sapienza 6-3

At least 14 people, including four policemen, were injured in the clashes that saw cars and rubbish bins set alight and used as barricades. Some residents claimed the police over-reacted. “They charged us suddenly, for no reason, while were standing still on the pavement. We wanted protection from the forces of law and order, but instead they attacked us,” one local, Eliana, told Ansa news agency.

The ugly developments are the latest sign of a wave of anti-Muslim immigration sentiment sweeping Italy, with populist political leaders appearing to profit from, even encourage it. Matteo Salvini, head of the xenophobic Northern League, has seen his ratings rise after appearing in a T-shirt bearing the phrase: “Stop Invasion.

Mr Salvini said: “Tor Sapienza represents the failure of the state, caused by the stupid politics of that part of the left that allows everyone to do anything they like.” Even ex-comic Beppe Grillo, who leads the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, appears to have stepped up the anti-immigration rhetoric.

Many locals have complained of an increase in muggings, car theft and burglary, which they blame on Muslim illegals housed in the centre.

“The tension is sky-high,” said Tommaso Ippoliti, president of the Tor Sapienza residents committee. “For years this neighbourhood has been abandoned. You can’t leave the house at night and lately the violence and thefts have increased,” he said. “A few days ago a girl was molested by a Muslim illegal in the afternoon while taking her dog for a walk. The committee condemns the violence last night, but the local people are rightly exasperated. We need more security.”

The violence at Tor Sapienza is the latest in a series of anti-Muslim,-motivated confrontations in the capital in the past few months. In September there were several clashes between Muslim illegals and locals in the Corcolle district. Around 40 illegals attacked two buses with stones and threatened a female driver, after claiming they were not allowed on public transport. Locals responded by launching vigilante patrols.

MYANMAR Government tells one million Muslims: “Prove that your family has lived here for more than 60 years or face deportation”

The policy, accompanied by a wave of decrees and legislation, has made life for the Rohingya Muslim minority, ever more desperate, spurring the biggest exit of Muslims since a major exodus two years ago.

Buddhist monks protest presence of violent Muslims in Myanmar who rape their women and kill their monks

Buddhist monks protest presence of Muslims in Myanmar who burn down their own villages, rape Buddhist women and kill their monks

The crisis has become an embarrassment to the White House ahead of a scheduled visit by Barack Hussein Obama to Myanmar next week. In his most public appeal to the government yet, Obama asked the Myanmar leader to revise the anti-Rohingya Muslim policies, specifically the resettlement plan.

Rohinga Muslims have been denied citizenship and evicted from their homes, their land has been confiscated, and they have been attacked by the military. After one such attack in 1978, some 200,000 fled to Bangladesh. The latest flare-up began with an outbreak of sectarian rioting in 2012, in which hundreds of Rohingya were killed and dozens of their villages burned to the ground by radical Buddhists. Since then, close to 100,000 have fled the country, and more than 100,000 have been confined to squalid camps.

ITALY: Muslim savages spit at Christians and shout, “Death to the Pope!” and “A good Christian is a beheaded Christian!”

A rally of conservative Christians in Rome was attacked by both Muslims and Italian police. The Muslims spat at the Christians, and began to scream, “Death to the Pope [Francis]!” And they also held signs that said, “A good Christian is a beheaded Christian!”

Shoebat  The police then forced the Christians out and yelled, “Disperse!” The Christians had no choice but to end the rally, while the Muslims continued their rally. To describe to us this persecution, Shoebat.com interviewed a member of the rally, Tommy Pacinotti, a Christian activist and a P.HD scholar in medieval history.

MARKED FOR DEATH: Geert Wilders’ 10-year war with Islam forces him to live with round-the-clock security

wilders-fitna-indonesia-1Hated by millions and marked for death, Dutch parliament member Geert Wilders is one of the most controversial politicians in the world. Wilders believes the religion of Islam is violent and dangerous, and because he has said so, publicly and persistently, he has had to forfeit a normal life. November 4, 2014 marks exactly 10 years Wilders has lived under police protection.

Dutch MEP Geert Wilders holds press conference in London

Gatestone  Wilders says: “The Netherlands has become the victim of Islam because the political elite looked away. It is not a clash of civilizations that is going on, but a clash between barbarism and civilization. As a result, also in our country today, Christians are being told: “We want to murder you all.” Jews receive death threats. Swastika flags at demonstrations, stones go through windows, Molotov cocktails, Hitler salutes are being made, macabre black ISIS flags wave in the wind, we hear cries, such as “F-ck the Talmud,” on the central square in Amsterdam.”

Two thirds of all Dutch say that the Islamic culture does not belong in the Netherlands. Including the majority of the electorate of the Labour Party, the majority of the voters of the VVD, the majority of the voters of the CDA, and all the voters of the PVV. The voters demand that, after ten years and two days of slumber, measures are finally taken.  Recognize that Islam is the problem. Start the de-Islamization of the Netherlands. Less Islam.

Close our borders to immigrants from Islamic countries. Immediate border controls. Stop this “cultural enrichment.”

Islamic State (ISIS) threatens to establish an “Islamic Caliphate in Egypt’s Sinai, as the first step towards invasion of Jerusalem”

Egyptian Army and Israel Defense Forces in unison say, “Bring it on, suckers!”

Unknown

ANSAmed The Islamic State (ISIS) has issued a statement saying that an Islamic Caliphate will be established in the Sinai, calling it the ”first step towards the invasion of Jerusalem”. The statement threatens Egyptian security forces, which were suffered an attack on October 24. ISIS urged jihadists in the region to ”destroy police checkpoints and stations, launch RPGs at their gatherings and show the world that the Rule of God must be imposed”.

Egypt’s deadliest jihadist group Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis (based in Sinai) swore allegiance to the Islamic State on Monday.

SYRIAN “moderate” REBELS armed and trained by the Obama Regime surrender to al-Qaeda affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra Front

2014-11-03T10-35-33.033Z--1280x720Two of the main rebel groups receiving weapons from the United States to fight both the regime and jihadist groups in Syria have surrendered to al-Qaeda.  The US and its allies were relying on Harakat Hazm and the Syrian Revolutionary Front to become part of a ground force that would attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

UK Telegraph  For the last six months the Hazm movement, and the SRF through them, had been receiving heavy weapons from the US-led coalition, including GRAD rockets and TOW anti-tank missiles.  But on Saturday night Harakat Hazm surrendered military bases and weapons supplies to Jabhat al-Nusra, when the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria stormed villages they controlled in northern Idlib province. 

framing-assad1-e13803175988841

The development came a day after Jabhat al-Nusra dealt a final blow to the SRF, storming and capturing Deir Sinbal, home town of the group’s leader Jamal Marouf. The attack caused the group, which had already lost its territory in Hama to al-Qaeda, to surrender.  “As a movement, the SRF is effectively finished,” said Aymen al-Tammimi, a Syria analyst. “Nusra has driven them out of their strongholds of Idlib and Hama.”

The collapse of the SRF and attacks on Harakat Hazm have dramatically weakened the presence of moderate rebel fighting groups in Syria, which, after almost four years of conflict is increasingly becoming a battle ground between the Syrian regime and jihadist organisations.  For the United States, the weapons they supplied falling into the hands of al-Qaeda is a realization of a nightmare.

It was not immediately clear if American TOW missiles were among the stockpile surrendered to Jabhat al-Nusra on Saturday. However several Jabhat al-Nusra members on Twitter announced triumphantly that they were.  Also the loss of a group that had been held up to the international media as being exemplary of Western efforts in Syria is a humiliating blow at the time that the US is increasing its military involvement in the country, with both air strikes and training of local rebels. 

In Idlib, Harakat Hazm gave up their positions to Jabhat al-Nusra “without firing a shot”, according to some reports, and some of the men even defected to the jihadists.  In Aleppo, where Harakat Hazm also has a presence, the group has survived, but only by signing a ceasefire agreement with Jabhat al-Nusra, and giving up some of their checkpoints to the group.  Activists circulated the ceasefire document on social media last week.

7ce02c576e49fc11e66b833d92bf1c76

Jabhat al-Nusra reportedly attacked the groups in part because of personal skirmishes between units, in part because of its ambition to build an Islamic emirate that rivals that of Isil, and in part because they feared that the groups’ closeness to the United States would pose a threat, analysts told The Telegraph. Mr Tammimi said: “One of the conditions for giving Harakat Hazm weapons was that they did not work with Jabhat al-Nusra. The Western bolstering of these groups posed a threat to them.”

President Obama recent announced a new program, run by the US, Turkey and other allies to train and equip 5000 Syrian rebels to fight Isil.  But rigorous procedures to vet Syrian candidates for the programme mean it will be several months before military tuition can get under way, and up to one year before they have a force ready to fight the jihadists.

Last month one state department official said they would move “quickly” to initiate the program by sourcing men from groups the US already works with, including Harakat Hazm, but that it would still be three months before the programme got under way.  “We are sourcing men from brigades who we have already helped with logistical supplies. We have 16 groups so far, but that list is fluid and it can grow,” the official said.  Now that process is likely to take even longer. 

These efforts have since been revamped with new operations rooms in Turkey, to manage the north of Syria, and in Jordan, to manage rebel operations in the south including Deraa and Damascus suburbs. The operations rooms are manned by representatives from Turkey, the US, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, a Syrian source involved in the arms supplies told The Telegraph. 

weaponsrebels

Qatar was reportedly thrown out over suggestions that it had been helping Jabhat al-Nusra, but is about to rejoin the effort.  “The operations rooms have been supplying anti-tank missiles, and individual GRAD rockets to rebel groups,” the source said. “There are 11 groups that they are helping.”

Rebel commanders apply for weapons directly to the operations rooms and state their case as to why they want the arms. “They have to apply for arms for individual missions,” the source said.  It also means that any fighters trained by the United States and allies to fight Isil will be battling the jihadists whilst also contending with attacks by the Syrian regime.
