Radical Islamic Group: We Will ‘Make As Much Noise As Possible’ During 9/11 Moment of Silence

09/05/2011 2 comments

Despicable. Britain should pass a law right now making it illegal to ‘make noise during the 9/11 moment of silence’, but then again, this is Britain where Islamists are allowed to hate and incite all they wish to their perverted heart’s content …

By Billy Hallowell – “On the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, a radical Islamic group hopes to ‘expose the crimes of the American government,’ while showcasing its opinion that the U.S. has lost its battle against terrorism.

The group, Muslims Against Crusades (MAC), plans to purposefully disrupt a commemorative 9/11 ceremony. Participants pledge to make as much noise as possible during a planned moment of silence that will be held outside the U.S. Embassy of London next weekend.

The group will be joined by another radical enterprise — Sharia 4 America. According to Beliefnet, MAC ‘…calls the 19 hijackers ‘martyrs.’’ The group’s spokesperson, Anjem Choudary, says:

“We will be holding a big demonstration and it’s going to begin at the time the first plane hit the building – when everybody is holding their minute’s silence.

“We will be very noisy during that time. It will be to expose the crimes of the American government over the past ten years and showing how they have failed.

He continued:

“They have lost the war against terror. All of their concepts of freedom and democracy have been run roughshod over and been replaced with extraordinary rendition and policies which mean people don’t have rights any more.”

The demonstration is called, ‘You Lost the War.’ A release, posted on MAC’s web site, takes a swipe at the mounting U.S. debt. It reads:

With over $14 trillion in debt the US economy is now on a life support machine; its military is caught in a gruelling war of attrition that the majority of analysts regard as unwinnable; on all fronts the US government is indeed facing defeat as the daunting spectre of death draws closer and closer.”

More to Lose in Crisis with Turkey Than Meets the Eye

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

By YAAKOV KATZ – “It is easy to judge Israeli-Turkish relations by what we all can see – military exercises have come to an end and defense exports to what was once one of Israel’s best customers are almost completely frozen.

There is also, of course, the diplomatic fallout from the current crisis which makes Israel even more isolated in an already extremely volatile Middle East.

There are, however, greater ramifications that Israel does not yet know how and if they will play out.

For Israel, Turkey was more than just a country with airspace and waters in which to train. It was a partner in the war on terror and a confidant when it came to sensitive intelligence information regarding attacks against Israel or terrorist plans throughout the region.

One example was in 2009 when the media reported about the thwarting of terrorist plans to shoot down an Israeli airliner over Turkey with shoulder-to-air missiles.

The scheme was apparently an effort by Hezbollah to avenge the 2008 assassination of its military commander Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus, which the Lebanese guerrilla group attributed to the Mossad.

Other examples include the recent grounding of Iranian transport aircraft in Turkey earlier this year that were allegedly carrying weaponry destined for Hezbollah, and the seizure of some 300 Iranian rockets aboard a freight train on its way to Syria via Turkey in 2007.

There was also the alleged Israeli strike four years ago this month against the nuclear reactor President Bashar Assad was building in northeast Syria…

In short, Israel could be losing not only a diplomatic and military ally but also a partner in the war on terror.

This could mean that Israel will not have someone to pass on information to in the event that it knows of plans to perpetrate attacks in Turkey or elsewhere in the region, and that the Turks might no longer have as strong an interest in intercepting weapons shipments that may pass through their country on their way to Iran’s various terror proxies.” Read more.

Spanish Town Becoming ‘New Mecca of the Most Radical Islamism’

09/05/2011 1 comment

By Soeren Kern – “The municipality of Salt, a town near Barcelona where Muslim immigrants now make up 40% of the population, has approved a one-year ban on the construction of new mosques. It is the first ban of its kind in Spain.

The moratorium follows public outrage over plans to build a massive Salafi mosque that is being financed by Saudi Arabia. Salafism is a branch of revivalist Islam that calls for restoring past Muslim glory by forcibly re-establishing an Islamic empire (Caliphate) across the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Europe such as Spain, which Salafists view as a Muslim state that must be reconquered for Islam.

Much of Spain was ruled by Muslim conquerors from 711 and 1492; Salafists believe that the territories the Muslims lost during the Spanish Reconquista still belong to them, and that they have a right to return and establish their rule there – a belief based on the Islamic precept that territories once occupied by Muslims must forever remain under Muslim domination.

Sacrificing common sense on the altar of multiculturalism, the previous Socialist government in Salt secretly gave permission to the Salafi Muslims to build the mega-mosque, which, with four stories comprising 1,000 square meters (11,000 square feet) accompanied by towering minarets, would be the largest Salafi mosque in Europe.

The secret deal was only discovered after the Socialists were ejected from power in May 2011. Angry natives began pressuring the new town council – now ruled by the center-right Convergència i Unió (CiU) party – to prevent the mosque from being built. On August 24, the council approved the one-year ban on the building of new mosques in order to provide ‘some time for reflection.’

The Salafi mega-mosque may still be built, however, because the construction permit was issued before the non-retroactive moratorium took effect. The building permit, which is valid for a period of six months, expires at the end of September 2011.” Read more.

Germany: Officials Tracking 1,000 Islamic Radicals Throughout the Country, ‘We Know Who These People Are’

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

This is what I don’t like about neutered Western governments.  If ‘we know who these people are’, why haven’t any of them been arrested, jailed or deported?  Surely, if the authorities know the radicals from the non-radicals, then they’re indeed being watched, and if they’re being watched then some of the worst of them have already been recorded breaking this law at the very least …

“Germany’s top security official says authorities are tracking about 1,000 Islamic radicals in the country with possible links to terrorism.

Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich told Bild newspaper’s Monday edition that of those, 128 have been identified as having the potential to commit attacks, and 20 have trained in terrorist camps.

He sought to allay fears, however, saying ‘we know who these people are.’

Friedrich is quoted as saying also that in a positive development, Muslim leaders in Germany took part in a June conference aimed at preventing individuals from ‘misusing the religion.'” Source.

Turkey: Israelis Held in Istanbul Airport and Treated with Contempt, Turkish Newspapers ‘Filled with Incitement’

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

By Attila Somfalvi – “About 40 Israeli passengers on board a Turkish Airlines flight from Tel Aviv to Istanbul were held for several hours by local police on Monday after their passports had been taken away from them. The passengers said that the Turkish police officers were disrespectful, claiming that such an incident was unprecedented.

‘I think that the police officers didn’t even know what they were looking for,’ one of the passengers told Ynet. ‘They apparently got an order to detain us, one by one. Everyone was in shock; we didn’t know what they were going to do to us. Obviously this was done intentionally in order to create an unpleasant feeling.’

‘They asked us why we came here, opened our bags, checked how much money we have and what we have on our laptops,’ he added.

Authorities in Jerusalem estimate that the detention of the Israeli passengers came in response to a recent incident during which Turkish citizens were detained for questioning by border police at Ben Gurion Airport.

Foreign Ministry officials said that no directive was issued regarding a change in the policy that concerns the reception of Israelis, and that there was no intention to single out Israelis that arrive in Turkey. ‘It was a mid-rank initiative that apparently came in response to the incident at Ben Gurion Airport,’ they said.

R’ and D’, businessmen who were on the flight said the attitude of the police officers at the airport was estranged. ‘We have been doing business in Turkey for 13 years. They held all Israelis. Whoever doesn’t have to work here shouldn’t come. They spoke rudely and acted improperly. People missed their connections but they didn’t care,’ he said.

According to the two, ‘As soon as they saw an Israeli, they told him to move on to questioning. All the Israelis were together and they accumulated the passports in one pile. I have never seen such a thing. I have also never seen them behaving in such disrespect. I don’t know what will be the atmosphere on the street. I don’t know what to expect. The papers from yesterday are filled with incitement.'” Read more.

Pro-Jihadist Iranian News Agency Publishes ‘Hit List’ of U.S. Citizens and Lawmakers

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

Did Iran send a message to radical Islamic sleeper cells currently in place in the United States? Or is it nothing more than a mere coincidence that a ‘hit list’ was published little more than a week before the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks? …

By Clare M. Lopez and W. Thomas Smith, Jr. – “Iran’s Khomeinist news agency, Press TV – long recognized for its Jihadist-supporting broadcasts – has published what is being referred to as a veritable ‘hit piece’ against many leading U.S. media companies, commentators, antiterrorism experts, legislators, and at least one presidential candidate – calling several by name – in what the news agency considers to be ‘The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America.’ And what observers fear may reveal a more sinister motive.

The article entitled, ‘U.S. Empire foments Islamophobia,’ and based on a just-released report by the Center for American Progress, contends there is a conspiracy by these so-named (primarily conservative) organizations and individuals to foment fears about Islam…

In the past, Press TV has focused its efforts against the U.S. and Europe, Arab moderates (including Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Morocco). Moreover, the agency has proven to be a standard-bearer for Hizballah, the Mahdi Army in Iraq, the Houthis in Yemen, and all of Iran’s allies worldwide. In addition to its operations in Tehran, Press TV operates in Beirut, from where the agency vigorously supports and promotes the leadership of Hizballah, and frequently interviews so-called experts who support Iran, Hizballah, and Hamas.

In the article published Sept. 1, 2011, Press TV changes up its batting order, specifically targeting – attempting to discredit and demonize – several non-governmental organizations (NGOs), members of the U.S. Congress, Muslim dissidents like Nonie Darwish and Walid Shoebat, various Western think tanks, and a number of international terrorism researchers like Robert Spencer, Steven Emerson and Daniel Pipes. The article also castigates the chair of the Homeland Security Committee in the U.S. House, Rep. Peter King; the chair of a subcommittee on Intelligence, Rep. Sue Myrick, and others. The list expands to include Rep. Paul Broun, Rep. Allen West, Rep. Renee Ellmers and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann.

The article goes on to target national media such as FOX News (particularly Sean Hannity) – accusing the network of fueling anti-Muslim sentiment – the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), the Washington Times, National Review (including Andy McCarthy, former Assistant U.S. Attorney who prosecuted the terrorists in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing), former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Frank Gaffney, well-known lawyer David Yerushalmi and Professor Walid Phares.” Read more.

I know this from experience. I have worked over 15 years as a U.S. Federal Agent, a U.S. State Department Arabic linguist, and the first civilian Federal Agent deployed into Iraq at the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. Since returning from Iraq I have been involved in terrorism analysis, specifically the mindset of terrorists.” Read more.

Nigeria: Muslim Youths Hack Christian Family of 8 to Death

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

“At least 11 people have been killed in spiralling violence between Christian and Muslim youths in central Nigeria’s volatile Plateau state since Sunday night, authorities and a Reuters reporter said on Monday.

The latest deaths bring the total number of people killed in the ethnically and religiously-mixed area in the past week to at least 50.

Plateau state spokesman Yiljap Abraham took journalists to see the bodies from two attacks, one in the village of Zakaleu, where seven people were killed, and the other in a village called Kuru. Several houses had also been burnt down.

‘At about 9 p.m. (2000 GMT) some people invaded the community while some of them were sleeping,’ said Timothy Buba, a government councillor from Jos, Plateau state’s capital, referring to the attack in Zakaleu.

‘Seven lives were lost. Some were burnt and three others are now in the hospital. The people and the houses were set on fire and even from the distance, you can see some smoke.’

Muslim youths hacked a Christian family of eight to death in Nigeria’s volatile Plateau state earlier on Sunday, local officials said, continuing a week of violence that has pitted gangs from the two faiths against each other and civilians.” Read more.

“Many of ICC-supported missionaries work in areas targeted by radical Islamists.  We recently received a very encouraging report from one of these missionaries! He told us that four members of an Islamic radical group came to Christ.  The Islamic radical group is known for killing of Christians in the country. Our missionary told us, “[The Muslim converts] are genuine children of God who have fully repented of their past sins.” Source.

IDF General: Arab Spring May Become Radical Islamic Winter and an ‘All-Out, Total War with the Possibility of Weapons of Mass Destruction Being Used’

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

Zechariah 14:12, “And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”

By Yoav Zitun – “Recent revolutions in the Arab world and the deteriorating ties with Turkey are raising the likelihood of a regional war in the Middle East, IDF Home Front Command Chief, Major General Eyal Eisenberg warned Monday.

‘It looks like the Arab Spring, but it can also be a radical Islamic winter,’ he said in a speech at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv.

‘This leads us to the conclusion that through a long-term process, the likelihood of an all-out war is increasingly growing,’ the IDF general said.

‘Iran has not abandoned its nuclear program. The opposite it true; it continues full steam ahead,’ he said. ‘In Egypt, the army is collapsing under the burden of regular security operations, and this is reflected in the loss of control in the Sinai and the turning of the border with Israel into a terror border, with the possibility that Sinai will fall under the control of an Islamic entity.’

‘In Lebanon, Hezbollah is growing stronger within government arms, but it has not lost its desire to harm Israel, and the ties with Turkey aren’t at their best,’ Major General Eisenberg added.

Referring to what he characterized as the possibility of a ‘radical Islamic winter,’ Major-General Eisenberg said: ‘This raises the likelihood of an all-out, total war, with the possibility of weapons of mass destruction being used.'” Read more.

Flashback: Hizbullah MP Believes That Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Hizbullah (Lebanon) Will Wipe Out Israel – “Hizbullah MP Brig.-Gen. Walid Sakariya (Ret) – “Iran is the country most hostile to Israel, but Iraq serves as a buffer between Iran and the Palestine front – from the days of Saddam Hussein and until the US military presence in Iraq. Iran supports the forces of confrontation: Hamas, Hizbullah, and Syria. If, following the US withdrawal, Iraq becomes a bridge linking Iran to Syria, the Iranian forces could cross Iraq and arrive in Syria, in order to participate in a direct war on the Golan front. In that case, Israel would not be fighting Hizbullah alone. It would be fighting Hizbullah, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. This is the so-called ‘Shiite Crescent’ that they fear. Since Iran dominates this (axis), the Arab countries refer to it as the ‘Shiite Crescent.’ If Hizbullah has 50,000 missiles and can destroy some targets in Israel, the equation will completely change when Syria and Iran join the war. You will have the strategic superiority and a force large enough to pulverize Israel, even if this war costs you hundreds of thousands of martyrs – not just 1,000 or 2,000. You will enter this war with a population mass exceeding 100 million” Read more.

Japan: Tropical Storm Talas Leaves at Least 29 Dead, 56 Missing, ‘This is the Worst in My Memory’

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

By Junko Ogura and Yoko Wakatsuki – “Tokyo (CNN) — The death toll from Talas, which swept across western Japan, has risen to 29, local authorities said Monday.

Another 56 people are missing, according to a tally of casualties compiled from various prefectural police.

The storm unleashed record rainfall that triggered landslides and flooding.

The Japan Meteorological Agency briefly classified the storm as a typhoon before it made landfall. But the Joint Typhoon Warning Center recorded the storm making landfall in Japan as a tropical storm.

‘I have been working for the prefectural office over 40 years, but this is the worst in my memory,’ said Tsutomu Furukawa of Wakayama prefecture. Wakayama is one of three prefectures on the mountainous Kii Peninsula, where damage from Talas was concentrated as the storm swept across the area on Saturday.

In the town of Nachi Katsuura in Wakayama, a river flooded into a residential area, and mudslides swallowed several homes, officials said.” Read more.

United Nations: 750,000 People in Somalia Face ‘Imminent Starvation’

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

“(CNN) — A record 4 million people in Somalia need humanitarian aid and 750,000 people are in danger of ‘imminent starvation,’ the United Nations said on Monday.

Famine in the African nation has spread to the Bay region, which is now the sixth area in Somalia suffering from an acute shortage of food, according to the the U.N.’s Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) and the Famine Early Warning Systems Network.

Officials are calling for a surge in response efforts as the crisis is predicted to get worse.

‘With the current food security outcomes famine conditions are expected to spread to agro pastoral populations in Gedo, Hiran, Middle Shabelle and Juba regions and riverine populations of Juba and Gedo in the coming 4 months,’ Grainne Moloney, FSNAU’s chief technical advisor, said in a statement announcing the latest survey results.

Of the 4 million people in need of emergency aid, 3 million are in the south. That figure is up from 2.4 million eight months ago.” Read more.

China: Over Ten Million Fish Dead After Mysterious Fish Kills Strike Fujian Province

09/05/2011 Leave a comment

“XIAMEN, Fujian – Fish farms along the Minjiang River in the Shuikou Township section of East China’s Fujian province have been hit by a wave of fish kills in recent days, but the cause has yet to be determined, local authorities said on Sunday.

Some 9,000 tanks of fish, including about 8,000 in Shuikou town and some 1,000 in Huangtian town, were reported dead as of Saturday, according to a release from the government of Gutian county, which administers the two townships.

One tank usually holds 3,500 to 5,000 fish.

‘We’re calculating the number of the dead fish and economic losses,’ said Zeng Lisheng, a Gutian publicity officer.

The river’s Shuikou section is Fujian’s largest freshwater fish cultivation base, and it provides local markets with about 100,000 kilograms of fish a day during harvest seasons.

Zeng said that local fishery and environmental protection departments are investigating the case and examining the water, but the reasons for the fish die-offs are unknown.

‘We’re mobilizing people, ships and vehicles to scoop up the dead fish, and we will bury them deeply under nearby hills with quicklime to prevent them from harming the environment,’ he said.

An expert accompanying an official investigation team to the sites on Saturday said that a low level of dissolved oxygen in the water might have killed the fish, the local newspaper Southeast Express reported.

But Huang Zhongfa, a resident of Shuikou’s Xilan village, said a lack of oxygen would not kill that many fish.

‘Only hundreds of fish in a tank would die if the level of dissolved oxygen is insufficient. We also found that the fish turned white after they died. That is abnormal, and that phenomenon doesn’t occur with deaths from oxygen insufficiency,’ he said.

‘The water is black and has something like oil on the surface.'” Read more.
