Italian Journalist Describes Hamas Cover-Up of Errant Rockets

1st August 2014

Read it.

An Italian journalist operating in Gaza corroborated Israel’s account of an errant Hamas rocket strike on a Gaza school playground on Monday, according to an Israel National News report. At least 10 people were killed, mostly children, in the Shati refugee camp school. Israel was immediately accused; however, it insisted that Hamas rockets caused the death and destruction.

Returning from Gaza and presumably safe from potential “Hamas retaliation,” journalist Gabriele Barbati tweeted confirmation that Hamas terrorists quickly tried to cover up evidence of its errant rocket strike.

Getting Uut the Muslim Vote in Tennessee

30th July 2014

Read it.

Did the script have the boy scouts tell their co-religionists that Allah says they can only vote for another Muslim?

The kids know what’s in their Islamic school textbook “What Islam Is All About”:

Allah says in this ayah [verse in the Quran] not to take non-Muslims as protectors. (3:118,4:144) Only fellow Muslims you can rely on should have authority or power over you. Because in the end, a non-Muslim who knows you, and who doesn’t accept Islam, is a rebel against Allah’s way of life and will harm you in the end or try to make you like him or her.

Republican candidate Aljabbary’s other mosque member Drost Kokoye, is all about identity politics and says, “I really don’t even like being called an American.” She was even willing to abet voter registration fraud.

Ransoming Citizens, Europe Becomes Al Qaeda’s Patron

29th July 2014

Read it.

Kidnapping Europeans for ransom has become a global business for Al Qaeda, bankrolling its operations across the globe.

While European governments deny paying ransoms, an investigation by The New York Times found that Al Qaeda and its direct affiliates have taken in at least $125 million in revenue from kidnappings since 2008, of which $66 million was paid just in the past year.

In various news releases and statements, the United States Treasury Department has cited ransom amounts that, taken together, put the total at around $165 million over the same period.

These payments were made almost exclusively by European governments, who funnel the money through a network of proxies, sometimes masking it as development aid, according to interviews conducted for this article with former hostages, negotiators, diplomats and government officials in 10 countries in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The inner workings of the kidnapping business were also revealed in thousands of pages of internal Qaeda documents found by this reporter while on assignment for The Associated Press in northern Mali last year.

In its early years Al Qaeda received most of its money from deep-pocketed donors, but counterterrorism officials now believe the group finances the bulk of its recruitment, training and arms purchases from ransoms paid to free Europeans.

After Leveling Iraq’s Tomb of Jonah, the Islamic State Could Destroy ‘Anything in the Bible’

25th July 2014

Read it. And watch the video.

But as reluctant a prophet as Jonah was, his purported tomb in Mosul, Iraq, is a holy site for Muslims – even though it’s not likely the final resting place of a man purported to live in a fish’s tummy for three days. Instead, wrote Columbia University Near Eastern history PhD student Christopher Jones, the tomb is a sacred place “to meditate on the questions raised by the story of Jonah: questions of justice, obedience, providence, fairness and divine mercy.”

Until this month, when it was destroyed by the Islamic State.

As is traditional, the chief victim of Muslim idiocy is other Muslims.

Diplomat: UN Gave Hamas Rockets to the Palestinian Government

21st July 2014

Read it.

United Nations officials handed Hamas missiles found last week in a U.N.-run school in Gaza to the Palestinian government, according to a Western diplomat familiar with the case who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

At least 20 rockets were discovered last week in a Gaza school run by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which operates several schools in Gaza and elsewhere.

I am convinced that U.N. stands for Utterly Nuts.

As EU Funds Palestinian Terrorists, Holland Says “No.”

18th July 2014

Read it.

For seven years now, the European Union has paid regular salaries to Palestinian terrorists serving time in Israeli prisons for murder. The way it works is simple: the more Jews each terrorist murders, the harsher the sentence; the harsher the sentence, the higher the pay. It’s a repulsive system, rewarding Jew-killers for the lives they take, and paying financial reward to terrorism.

Now the Dutch, at least, have had enough of it. Earlier this month, Holland’s Parliament passed a motion to end subsidies to the Palestinian Authority, which had openly used these funds to provide financial rewards to former officials convicted of terrorism – including, as one Dutch report pointed out, the murder “of a Dutch family with three young children in a pizzeria in Jerusalem in 2001.”

Hamas Broke Latest Cease-Fire, Only Lasted Two Hours

18th July 2014

Read it.

NBC’s Richard Engel, reporting from Gaza, said that only two hours after Israel and Palestine agreed to a humanitarian cease-fire, Hamas fired three mortar shells into Israel.

Muslims, like Communists, think of a truce as a pause to let them rest until they are ready to attack again. There’s even a term for it: hudna: ‘The historical legacy of the hudna concept also drive home a salient point: it was always intended as a way for a losing party to get time and regroup before rising to victory over its enemies.’

Hamas Firing Rockets? There’s an App for That

16th July 2014

Read it.

English speakers across the globe are getting a real-time glimpse of what it is like to live under the constant threat of terrorist rocket attacks thanks to a hugely popular smartphone app that sends out a “red alert” whenever Israel is targeted.

As Israeli citizens struggle to shelter themselves from a near-constant barrage of rockets fired by the terror group Hamas, those living outside of the Jewish state are experiencing the same sense of panic via the Red Alert: Israel app, which “provides real time alerts every time a terrorist fires rockets, mortars, or missiles into the State of Israel.”

Nightmare in the Marais District

16th July 2014

Read it.

Last Sunday a large group of Jew-hating pro-Palestinian rioters attacked the Don Yitzchak Abarbanel Synagogue in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. There were only a few policemen guarding the entrance at the time, and the attack took them by surprise. If civilian guards posted by the Jewish Defense League had not been on hand to help hold off the rock-throwing mob, the rioters would almost certainly have broken into the synagogue, where two hundred worshippers were trapped.

A second synagogue was attacked the same day in another part of Paris.

It may be hard for some to believe, given the endless attacks on the Jewish state today, that in the not-too-distant past, Israel was as beloved as it is now widely reviled. More remarkable, it was especially loved on the left, where now it is scorned. The process by which Israel turned from paragon into pariah is the subject of Joshua Muravchik’s well-argued new book Making David into Goliath.

Sharia Advances in Maylaysia

13th July 2014

Read it.

Malaysia is one of those countries that have been cited, along with Indonesia and Turkey, as evidence that a predominantly Muslim country can have a secular government and can, in general, be modern. A prominent commentator wrote some years ago that the Arab world may be hopeless, but the Islamic world isn’t. That didn’t sound overly optimistic at the time, but with hindsight, it may have been.

We all know what has been happening in Turkey. In Malaysia, Reuters reports that Islamic Sharia courts are increasingly coming into conflict with secular law. You can guess who is winning. Reuters begins with a story about a Hindu family in which the husband, after leaving his wife, became a Muslim and purported to convert his children. This resulted in his gaining custody of them, contrary to orders of the “regular” Malaysian courts.

Kurds Seize Two Oil Fields, Pull Out of Iraqi Government

If Nouri al-Maliki wanted to dissolve the Iraqi union purposefully, he could hardly be doing a better job. While Kurds fight ISIS in the north — and more effectively than Maliki’s politically purged army has — Maliki accused them of being in league with the extremists even as Kurds mull over whether to just go on their own. Now they want Maliki out, or they’ll be leaving for good….

Clinton Foundation, Hamas Share Major Donor

12th July 2014

Read it.

The Clinton Foundation and the terror group Hamas share a key donor: The government of Qatar, a leading backer of terror groups that has emerged in recent years as Hamas’ chief financial lifeline.

Qatar, which has been designated by the State Department as a “significant terrorist financing risk,” has pledged more than $400 million to Hamas since 2012 and has long harbored one of the terror group’s senior leaders, Khaled Mashaal.

And yet a prominent labor union can stop its support of the United Negro College Fund because they took money from the Koch brothers. Interesting priorities these Democrats have.

No Room for Lukewarm as Mideast Christians Die

5th July 2014

Read it.

At this year’s event, I bumped into many friends and met a raft of new people—preachers, academics, diplomats, think-tankers, journalists—from every point on the political spectrum and from a kaleidoscope of religious traditions.  In between the discussions about the efficaciousness and evolution of RTP (“Responsibility to Protect) in international relations—there remain serious deficits in systematic application of a consistent standard which can require collective action, whether economic, diplomatic, or sometimes, military, by the international community in order to protect populations from crimes that their states are unwilling or unable to stop—and the analysis of challenges posed by social media as a tool for religious radicalization, mobilization, and action—religious extremist groups are using Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook with unprecedented scope and sophistication, as echo chambers to amplify hate and provoke violence—I couldn’t help but wonder: Why has the international community demonstrated no sense of responsibility to protect the Christian communities of the Middle East, given the mounting evidence that very existence is becoming ever-more tenuous because of the crimes perpetrated by jihadi extremists who are uploading 72-hours-per-minute of real-time horrors from the killing zones of Syria and Iraq?

Iraq: Everyone Hates ISIL

5th July 2014

A brief primer.

ISIL (al Qaeda in Iraq and Syria) began as Sunni Arab nationalists who lost their jobs, power and wealth when Saddam Hussein and his Baath Party were overthrown in early 2003. Saddam Hussein was a secular dictator, who tolerated Islamic terrorists if they attacked his enemies and behaved while hiding out in Iraq. After Saddam’s forces were thrown out of Kuwait in 1991 his policy changed and he declared that he was actually religious and he backed Sunni Islamic terrorist groups as long as they helped him keep the Shia Arab majority of Iraq under control. Sunni Islamic terrorists were willing to do this because Sunni conservatives consider Shia heretics worthy only of torture and death. The Iraqi Shia had staged a major rebellion against Saddam right after Saddam’s army get chewed up trying to hang onto Kuwait in 1991. That rebellion festered throughout the 1990s. Saddam and his key associates developed relationships with Sunni tribal leaders and Sunni Islamic terrorist groups, who had for decades been forced to keep their heads down. Once Saddam was out of power in 2003 the Sunni tribes and Islamic terrorists lost the financial and military support Saddam provided for over a decade. The Sunni Arab minority (about 20 percent of Iraqis) also lost control of the Iraq economy and all that oil money. This came as a big shock. Many of these Sunni Arabs wanted their wealth and power back and were willing to do anything to accomplish that task. That led to support for Islamic terrorist groups. The Sunni Arab minority in what is now Iraq has long dominated the area and feels that this domination is a right and a responsibility. They were always wealthier, better educated, more organized and prone to ruthlessness. By merging with Islamic terrorists they acquired the belief they had divine approval for their goals.

Mogadishu on the Mississippi

4th July 2014

Read it.

The population of Mogadishu is moving to Minneapolis, through the miracle of chain immigration. I don’t know whether there is any limiting principle to this or whether all of Mogadishu will one day reside along the Mississippi, but in any event, the Somali influx is already impacting Minnesota politics.

Despite being “natural conservatives”–imagine what they must think of abortion and gay marriage!–the Somalis have so far been reliable Democratic voters. This has created one of this year’s most interesting local races, in which Phyllis Kahn, a left-wing Democrat who has represented her district in the Minnesota House of Representatives for 42 (!) years, is being challenged in a primary by one Mohamud Noor. Kahn has long enjoyed the perks of a Democratic insider, including the privilege of owning a $1 house on prime Minneapolis real estate. But so far, all of that seems to avail her little as she fights for her political life against Mr. Noor.

A Rogue State Along Two Rivers

The militant group called the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria seemed to surprise many American and Iraqi officials with the recent gains it made in its violent campaign to create a new religious state. But the victories achieved in the past few weeks were built on months of maneuvering along the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, which define a region known as the cradle of civilization.

Down and Out in Beverly Hills …and Peshawar and Khartoum and Gaza

3rd July 2014

Mark Steyn occasionally lets reality harsh his mellow.

Naftali Frenkel was a US citizen. That’s to say, he was entitled to the protection of Obama and his worthless State Department. In geopolitical terms, the problem is not Mr Frenkel’s murderers: every society has its share of blood-lusting savages. The problem is that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians exult in Mr Frenkel’s murder.

Palestinian “nationalism” is a euphemism for a death-cult whose pathologies seep into almost every routine daily transaction: The last time I was there, a few years ago, the affable proprietors at almost every convenience store had various local Martyrs of the Week pinned up on the wall behind the cash register, and the Education Ministry was giving first prize in its letter-writing competition to a seventh-grader from Jenin pledging to his deceased father to become a suicide bomber and “propel my living-dead body into your arms”. Their own corpses are historic victories, and Jewish corpses are the spoils thereof. There is no evidence of “nation-building”, nor any appetite therefor. Invited to choose between nation-building and Jew-killing, they plump for the latter, every time.

Obama did not create this sickness, but he is rewarding it. If you can kill Jews and US citizens without the Great Satan putting a stop on the nine-figure check, then you’ve got the best of both worlds.

Next Turkish Conspiratorial Shoe Falls

29th June 2014

Steve Sailer connects the dots.

In previous episodes, we’ve tracked:

- How Turkish Islamists imprisoned hundreds of members of the secularist Deep State on the grounds that well, sure, we just made up the evidence that the military is conspiring against us ruling Islamists, but we in the government are plotting against them, so it would be remiss of them not to plot against us.

- How the two branches of the Islamist ruling party then turned on each other, with the Gulen Cult, which has used its control of test prep to infiltrate the police, releasing incriminating wiretaps of Prime Minister Erdogan’s corruption.

Not surprisingly, Erdogan is now making nice with the old Deep State, presumably to use against Imam Gulen’s new Deep State.

A Short History of Stupidity in the Middle East

28th June 2014

Taki is delightfully dyspeptic today.

The Sultan had wisely divided the Middle East along ethnic lines into provinces. The Anglo-French duo in 1916 proved as ignorant as George W. Bush was to be 87 years later. Had they never heard of the Sunni-Shia divide? The 1990s wars over Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo, the Gulf War of 1991 and the disastrous Iraq war of 2003, as well as the Israeli-Palestinian tragedy, can all be traced directly to the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1920 and those two fools carving up the Middle East while their minds were obviously elsewhere. (Most likely trying to figure out whose family was older and richer.)

Winston Churchill doesn’t come out very well either. He actually created Iraq, or Mesopotamia as it was then called, and by the time he was thrown out of office in 1922 his folly had become Iraq as it is today. He created the artificial monarchy that ended so badly in 1958, thinking he was dealing with sleepy Bedouins who would genuflect in front of Faisal, whose family realm in Saudi Arabia had been usurped by some camel drivers who had never used an indoor loo.

Thought for the Day

26th June 2014

Kenneth John “Ken” Bigley (22 April 1942 – 7 October 2004) was a British civil engineer who wa skidnapped in the al-Mansour district of Baghdad, Iraq, on 16 September 2004, along with his colleagues Jack Hensley and Eugene Armstrong, both United States citizens.[1] The three men were working for Gulf Supplies and Commercial Services, a Kuwaiti company working on reconstruction projects in Iraq. The men knew their home was being watched and realized they were in grave danger when their Iraqi house guard informed them he was quitting due to being threatened by militias for protecting American and British workers. Bigley and the two Americans decided it was worth the risk and continued to live in the house. All were subsequently decapitated.”

The Jihadi Menace Reaches a High Water Mark

24th June 2014

Read it.

“From the ruins of the Obama Administration’s Middle East strategy, the most powerful and dangerous group of religious fanatics in modern history has emerged in the heart of the Middle East.” So says Walter Russell Mead, the distinguished historian of American foreign policy (who reportedly has said he voted for Barack Obama in 2008).

The fanatical group in question is, of course, ISIS. According to Mead, who cites analysts at the Brookings Institution and the Washington Institute, ISIS is more radical, better organized, and better financed than al-Qaeda. It commands the loyalty of thousands of dedicated fanatics, including many with Western and even U.S. passports. And it now controls some of the most strategic territory at the heart of the Middle East.

The Jihad You Can’t See

20th June 2014

Read it.

The violent jihad in Syria and Iraq is the big guy we all can see. He makes sure we can see him. It’s absolutely necessary that we see him, because his job is to strike terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, as required by Allah.

The little guy that we can’t see is somewhere else. His most recent invisible appearance was at the Vatican, during an event I call Imamgate, when an imam accredited by Al-Azhar University prayed (in Arabic) for Allah to grant victory over the unbelievers.

This incident received very little media attention, yet it was one of the most important stories of the decade. We are in the midst of an information war with Islam, and we are being roundly trounced. What happened at the Vatican received plenty of notice in the Arabic media, and is understood (correctly) by Muslims as a great victory for Islam. Using stealth and deception, the Al-Azhar imam penetrated the innermost sanctum of Christendom and claimed it for the Ummah.

An excellent article by someone who really understands what’s going on — unlike most of our government.

Two Men Arrested in Texas on Terrorism Charges

19th June 2014

Read it.

Rahatul Ashikim Kahn, 23, was arrested at his home in the Austin suburb of Round Rock and charged with terrorist activities, including “committing violent jihad,” according to court documents unsealed on Wednesday.

The other man, Michael Wolfe, 23 also known as “Faruq,” was arrested at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston on Tuesday. He was charged in a separate federal criminal complaint with “attempting to provide material support to terrorists,” prosecutors said.

Boy, those names just scream ‘Texas’, don’t they?

Who Funds the Isis Islamist Militants in Iraq?

19th June 2014

Read it.

The organisation has gained most of its financing from smuggling, extortion and other crime.

And why not? Mohammed financed his career through robbery.

In Syria, the group has gained cashflows from oilfields and smuggling £21m of antiquities from the country.

They’ve also reportedly extorted taxes from businesses in Mosul, Iraq, netting millions a month.

Already they’re acting like a government.

Jihad and Hijra in Kenya

18th June 2014

Read it.

Islam has bloody borders, as the late Samuel Huntington famously said. Kenya is one of those border areas: although not a Muslim country (an estimated 8%-10% of the population is Muslim), it is subject to sporadic outbreaks of jihad-related violence.

Last year’s Westgate Mall massacre was the jihad attack that brought the situation in Kenya into public awareness. But Muslims were massacring Kenyan infidels before Westgate, and they have continued since then.

Benghazi Suspect Captured

17th June 2014

Read it.

Over the weekend, U.S. special forces captured Ahmed Abu Khattala, who is alleged to be a ringleader of the September 11, 2012 attack on the State Department’s Benghazi complex. Khattala was seized near Benghazi and will be returned to the U.S. to stand trial.

Watch the Obamanation find some way to set him free or perhaps trade him for a draft pick to be named later.

I still don’t understand why a terrorist who led a military attack on an American facility overseas should be brought back to the U.S. and prosecuted under a criminal statute. It would make more sense to process him through a military tribunal and then (assuming his participation in the attack is confirmed) shoot him. The criminal prosecution route suggests that the Obama administration has no intention of punishing any more of the hundreds of terrorists who participated in the Benghazi attack, but rather will let Khattala stand in, symbolically, for the whole. But no doubt we should be grateful for even this small measure of retribution.

Well, that would take a Real President — like, say, FDR or Truman — rather than the pretend President we have now.

‘Make Us Victorious Over the Tribe of Unbelievers’

16th June 2014

Read it.

As we have reported extensively over the past week, a Muslim imam who was invited to participate in the “prayer for peace” event at the Vatican on June 8 went off-script and asked Allah to help him gain victory over the unbelievers. The Vatican at first denied that any such thing had happened, and an edited video of the event was released that supported their denial — the end of Sura 2 Verse 286 that the imam quoted from the Koran had been judiciously removed from the publicized version.

Why Is Josh Reubner Standing by a Killer?

13th June 2014

Read it.

Odeh is a Palestinian woman charged with naturalization fraud. At issue are her answers on immigration forms to straightforward questions asked of all immigrants seeking visas and naturalization: Were you ever arrested? Convicted? Jailed?

Odeh answered no to these and other relevant questions when she sought a visa in 1994, her indictment says. The same answers were given in 2004, when she applied for naturalization as an American citizen.

She never told immigration officials about her 1969 arrest, conviction and subsequent 10 years spent in an Israeli prison for her role in bombing a Jerusalem supermarket where two men died. She was sentenced to life, but was released in a 1979 prisoner exchange.

That seems like the kind of information that an immigration official might want to consider in evaluating an applicant. Reubner asserts that Odeh “was brutally tortured into confessing a crime she did not commit.” Odeh’s word is the only basis for the torture claim. And not only is there no basis to say she didn’t do it, there’s video evidence placing her in the bombing conspiracy.

Whose Turn Is It To Be the Victim?

6th June 2014

Read it.

A gunman, presumably Islamic and possibly a “Frenchman” named Mehdi Nemmouche, recently shot down four people in the Jewish Museum in Brussels. The principal victims of his actions were…

You guessed it: Muslims.

After Mr. Nemmouche was arrested, French Muslim leaders stood at the microphones in front of the TV cameras and exhorted the audience to guard against the “stigmatization” of Muslims, whilst reassuring them that the gunman’s actions had nothing — nothing, I tell you! — to do with Islam.
