After Jihadi John apologist tells SKY News reporter her questions are “Islamophobic” and “racist,” she snaps back: “Nonsense! Get over yourself”

Asim Qureshi, research director at the Muslim rights group CAGE has described the ISIS executioner as “beautiful, extremely kind and gentle and the most humble young person I ever knew.” He then blames British Security Services MI5 for radicalizing him and pushing him towards his beheading spree in Syria.

DENMARK’S ‘Rehab’ program for radical Islamic jihadists

meme6c23a06913759bffDenmark has launched a controversial program aimed to rehabilitate rather than punish violent Islamic jihadists. “We are helping terrorists to find jobs and go back to school, but if they want to remain radicalized, we won’t try to take that away from them.” Nope, you can’t make this stuff up, folks.


Understanding that the Obama Regime is not a reliable ally in the war against Islamic terrorism, Jordan and Egypt join forces with Israel…yes, ISRAEL

UnknownThe two countries that share peacetime borders with Israel, Jordan and Egypt, are dealing with a historic challenge presented by Islamic State, also Flag-Pins-Jordan-Israelknown as ISIS, and its local extensions. The two countries, which over the past year have strengthened their ties with Israel in light of regional instability, could rely even more on the strategic support their neighbor gives them.

Haaretz via Arab America  (h/t Mike F) Only occasionally is information released by foreign media. Thus, according to a report on CNN last week, Israel sent drones to the Jordanian border with Syria to assist Amman in collecting intelligence with the goal of stopping possible attacks by ISIS from the northern border.

The conflict between Jordan and ISIS worsened following publication last week of a video showing ISIS members immolating the Jordan pilot Muath al-Kaseasbeh, which actually was carried out more than a month ago. A wave of demands for revenge swept over Jordan following the gruesome murder of the captured pilot.

The Jordanian air force has already conducted dozens of sorties against ISIS targets in Syria. In Sinai, the Egyptian army has undertaken a major operation against the extremist group Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, following the murder of 32 Egyptians, most of them members of the security forces, in a series of coordinated attacks by the group in the northern Sinai Peninsula on January 29. The organization announced it was moving its support from Al Qaida to ISIS in November.

The murder of the Jordanian pilot and recent terror attacks in Sinai have created expectations from both regimes to take strong steps. The Hashemite kingdom sees to it that every aerial assault on ISIS targets in Syria gets maximum media coverage. In Sinai, the Egyptian army is attacking Ansar strongholds with infantry and combat helicopters, some of which penetrate Gazan air space in blatant disregard for the Hamas regime in the Strip.

Cairo, which squarely blames Hamas for giving logistical and operational backing to groups working against it in Sinai, has renewed its threats against Hamas and plans on continuing its demolition of thousands of homes in Egyptian Rafah to create a “security zone” two kilometers wide on the border with the Strip. The purpose of the security zone is to reduce to a minimum the number of smuggling tunnels to the Palestinian side.

The Egyptian and Jordanian moves implicitly strengthen what might be called the “unity of the threatened” between those two countries and Israel. 

But from the Israeli perspective, not all the results of recent developments are necessarily positive. Organizations affiliated with the Islamist political party Islamic Action Front in Jordan oppose the assaults on ISIS, and the open war King Abdullah has declared on that group is expected to heighten internal conflict and lead to ISIS revenge attacks from the Jordanian-Iraqi border as well.

In Egypt there are two possible negative implications. Renewed Egyptian pressure on Hamas, along with delays in rehabilitation of the Gaza Strip, increase the risk of a renewed outbreak of Palestinian violence from Gaza against Israel. Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, which has already mounted attacks against Israel, could once again attack Israeli targets as a means of drawing more attention to the war of attrition it is waging in Sinai against the Egyptian security forces.


WHITE HOUSE SpokesIdiot says: “The Taliban is NOT a terrorist organization”

091008-taliban-coinDeputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz responded to a question about whether Jordan’s plan to make a prisoner trade with ISIS was similar to the U.S. swapping five Taliban members for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. First, Schultz said that the U.S. doesn’t negotiate with terrorists. Then he said, “I don’t think that the Taliban is a terrorist organization…it is an armed insurgency.”

FOX News  “It slits throats, it attacks buses, it drives car bombs into markets, it slaughters hundreds of schoolchildren, and it’s not a terrorist group? Look, you can’t parody this administration,” Charles Krauthammer said this evening on “Special Report.” This comes at the same time as Al Jazeera English’s directives not to use words like terrorist, extremist, Islamist or jihad.


U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon says the Muslim terrorist massacre in Paris had nothing to do with Islam

…and I am an idiot!

…and I am an idiot!

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told reporters that the terror attacks in Paris, in which Muslim terrorists targeted a Jewish market and a satirical newspaper that mocked Mohammed, were “criminality” that had nothing to do with the Islamic religion.

Breitbart  Signing a condolence book for the victims of the terror attacks, Ban said: “this is not a country, a war against religion or between religions–it is not anything on religion or belief by somebody or some country. This is a purely unacceptable terrorist attack–criminality.”


Similarly, on Thursday, Ban told reporters at the UN that the terror attacks “should never be seen as a war of religion … for religion … or on religion.” He noted, as evidence, that one of the police killed outside the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris had himself been a Muslim.


French President François Hollande expressed similar sentiments on Friday, telling the nation: “Those who committed these acts have nothing to do with the Muslim religion.”

Ban appealed Friday for tolerance and for people to resolve differences through dialogue.



HUH? Palestinians are fleeing Gaza, asking Israel to put them in prison

Some Palestinian Muslims prefer to spend time in an Israeli prison rather than live in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. The situation has become so miserable that several Palestinian youths are prepared to endanger their lives by approaching the border with Israel.


“I’m sad that I’m back in the Gaza Strip. I went through happy times [in Israeli detention], where I had food, calm, good work, although I did not receive a salary. Those were unforgettable days where I had delicious food that we don’t have in the Gaza Strip.” — Rabi, 16, who crossed the border from Gaza and was held in detention for three months before being sent back home.

Not only is Hamas unwilling to accept any kind of responsibility, but it continues to hold everyone but itself responsible for the tragic situation n the Gaza Strip.

Instead of working to improve the living conditions of its people, Hamas is continuing to prepare for the next war against Israel. In recent weeks, Hamas increased its rocket and mortar firing tests out to sea.

Gatestone Institute  Over the past two months, more than 20 Palestinians have been arrested while trying to cross from the Gaza Strip into Israel, according to Palestinian sources


The Palestinian news website, Al-Watan Voice, interviewed two of the youths who embarked on the dangerous adventure. The two young men said they prefer the “comfort” of Israeli prisons to life in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

The increase in the number of Palestinians who try to infiltrate Israel comes as Egypt continues to keep the Rafah border crossing closed. It also comes as the power struggle between Hamas and Fatah intensifies, hampering international efforts to rebuild the Gaza Strip and improve Palestinians’ living conditions in the aftermath of last summer’s military confrontation with Israel.


Rabi said, “The situation in the Gaza Strip is very difficult. My father, who once worked in Israel, told me it was beautiful there.” The last war between Hamas and Israel has resulted in a sharp rise in the number of Palestinians seeking to escape from the Gaza Strip. Last September, scores of Palestinian migrants attempting to flee the Gaza Strip died after their boat capsized in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of northern Egypt.

It was a sight that shocked the world — the corpse of Ribhi Badawi being dragged through the streets of Gaza City Tuesday by a motorcycle as Hamas gunmen fired into the air. His crime? Collaborating with Israel to pinpoint Hamas targets. But the charge wasn’t true, the militant’s grieving widow told The News.


Actually, Badawi, 37, had spent the last four years in a Hamas prison under armed guard. He was tortured for seven months into confessing that he was working for Israel. “They burned (him) and broke his jaw and teeth,” said his widow, Kholoud Badawi. “He was hanged for 45 days by his arms and legs to make him confess. He confessed because of the torture.


The closure of the Rafah border crossing and strict Egyptian security measures in Sinai, following a spate of terror attacks on Egyptian soldiers, have forced some Palestinians to seek work and a better life in Israel. Thousands of Palestinians remain stranded on both sides of the Rafah border crossing despite repeated appeals to the Egyptian authorities to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe.

The case of the two Palestinian youths who said they prefer Israeli jail to life in the Gaza Strip shows that some Palestinians are no longer willing to tolerate Hamas’s deadly adventures and oppression. That is why the coming weeks and months could see a rise in the number of Palestinians knocking on Israel’s door and asking to be imprisoned rather than return to the Gaza Strip.






Quebec Human Rights Commission proposes a new provision that would criminalize online criticism of Muslims

Essentially, this means it would allow ‘victims’ of hateful online comments to register complaints and eventually receive compensation. When a website rails and rants with comments that expose the ugly truth about certain groups such as the muslim community, the government would have recourse to take action against such websites.

Apparently, Quebec wants to equate telling the truth about Islam with incitement of hatred. Let’s hope the people of Quebec can defeat this idiotic idea.

DUMB DEMOCRAT DUMBEST IDEA OF THE DAY: “The State Department should hire Islamic scholars to combat Islamic State (ISIS) ideology”

Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) said the U.S. State Department needs more experts in Islamic jurisprudence to combat the ideology of the Islamic State. Sherman told a congressional hearing that the U.S. should hire Muslim theologians and experts in sharia law  to reduce the threat of worldwide terror.


Washington Free Beacon  Sherman backed up his statements during an interview with Al Jazeera America’s Antonio Mora on Tuesday night. “We have the outreach–what we don’t have is the research,” Sherman said. “Keep in mind, the State Department has a thousand lawyers. I think they ought to hire one or two experts in Islamic jurisprudence, whether they be practicing Muslims or others who have the expertise.

Sherman said this would involve employing established Muslim scholars who can justify opposition to IS with passages from the Quran and the Hadith–the collections of teachings, sayings, and actions of the Prophet Muhammad. 

Hey Brad, did you mean THIS quran?


Sherman stressed the need to find Islamic–rather than secular or humanitarian–justifications against the brutality of the Islamic State to appeal to Muslims worldwide, particularly in the West, who are susceptible to recruitment via social media.

“One must be able to turn to the Quran, to turn to the Hadith and show how ISIS is making a mockery of a great world religion,” Sherman said. “You cannot appeal to Islamic jurists unless you can cite Hadith, unless you can cite Quran, unless you can do all the things you would do in working before any other jurists anywhere in the world.



Sorry to have to bash Pope Francis again, but he just said: “It is wrong to equate Islam with violence”


And that’s not all: Pope Francis said on Sunday that equating Islam with violence was wrong and called on Muslim leaders to issue a global condemnation of terrorism to help dispel the stereotype.

UK Daily Mail  Pope Francis, the leader of 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, told reporters aboard his plane returning from a visit to Turkey that he understood why Muslims were offended by many in the West who automatically equated their religion with terrorism.

Islamic Protest slogans

Francis’ predecessor, Benedict XVI, caused storms of protest throughout the Islamic world in 2006, when he made a speech that suggested to many Muslims that he believed Islam espoused violence.


Benedict said he had been misunderstood and apologised. But this year, the image of a violent religion has once more been promoted by Islamic State, who have seized swathes of Syria and Iraq, slaughtering or driving out Shi’ite Muslims, Christians and others who do not share their radical brand of Sunni Islam.


The Argentine pope, who has been trying to foster cooperation with moderate Islam in order to work for peace and protect Christians in the Middle East, said it was wrong for anyone to react to terrorism by being “enraged” against Islam.


“You just can’t say that, just as you can’t say that all Christians are fundamentalists. We have our share of them (fundamentalists). All religions have these little groups,” he said. They (Muslims) say: ‘No, we are not this, the Koran is a book of peace, it is a prophetic book of peace’.”

Christians slaughtered in the streets of Nigeria just for being Christians

Francis said he had made the suggestion of a global condemnation of terrorism by Islamic leaders in talks on Friday with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.

“I told the president that it would be beautiful if all Islamic leaders, whether they are political, religious or academic leaders, would speak out clearly and condemn this because this would help the majority of Muslim people,” he said.


Francis several times condemned Islamic State’s insurgents during his three-day trip. On the plane, he said some Christians had been forced to abandon everything: “They are driving us out of the Middle East.”


In an address at a Mass on Sunday, he said Islamic State were committing a “profoundly grave sin against God” and called for inter-religious dialogue and action against poverty to help end the conflicts in the region.


He added that ending poverty was crucial, partly because it gave rise to “the recruitment of terrorists”. Francis has in the past said that, while it is lawful for the international community to use force to stop an “unjust aggressor”, lasting solutions must be found that tackle the root causes of violence


And if that isn’t bad enough, Pope Francis recently called for the opening of Europe’s borders even wider than they already are so that Muslim invaders can advance their plan of creating a worldwide Islamic caliphate. How do you say “traitor” in Latin?
