AS MANY AS 20-30 FORMER GITMO JIHADIS INVOLVED IN THE FIGHTING WITH ISLAMIC STATE IN SYRIA…….

 

The upside to this is of course, they get wasted there in the fighting, not making it back to the West to cause trouble.

Sources: Former Guantanamo detainees suspected of joining ISIS, other groups in Syria

As many as 20 to 30 former Guantanamo Bay detainees released within the last two to three years are suspected by intelligence and Defense officials of having joined forces with the Islamic State and other militant groups inside Syria, Fox News has learned.

The development has cemented fears that the U.S. military would once again encounter militants taken off the battlefield.

The intelligence offers a mixed picture, and officials say the figures are not exact. But they are certain at least some of the released detainees are fighting with the Islamic State, or ISIS, on the ground inside Syria. Others are believed to be supporting Al Qaeda or the affiliated al-Nusra Front in Syria.

A number of former detainees also have chosen to help these groups from outside the country, financing operations and supporting their propaganda campaigns.

Sources who spoke to Fox News were not able to provide the identities of the fighters.

CHAMBER OF CRONY CAPITALISM (A.K.A. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE) OPENS BRANCH IN TERROR SUPPORTING QATAR…….

QATAR AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

qatar funding terrorism

Thomas J. Donohue
Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America
1615 H Street, NW
Washington, DC 20062-2000

Dear Mr. Donohue:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar. In 2010, the US Chamber of Commerce opened a branch in Doha, Qatar – AmCham Qatar. Qatar, while the wealthiest country per capita in the world, is at once the home base of the Muslim Brotherhood and also the world’s most prolific sponsor of terror, including: Hamas, Boko Haram, and the Islamic State.

AmCham Qatar is the “first legally established foreign Chamber of Commerce in Qatar.” This is not a surprising fact, for Qatar is a business partner and client of several of America’s largest and longest established companies, including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, ExxonMobil, and others.

Considering the following statement: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which is by far the largest lobbying spender in Washington ($136.3 million in 2012), has a growing, intimate, and working relationship with a sponsor of terrorism that profits from slavery, narcotics, and extortion. Does this not stink of corruption, or incredible incompetence? It certainly has the potential spawn numerous international inquiries as to what AmCham Qatar does for the Qatari Al-Thani monarchy, who once welcomed and employed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

As a businessman, you are familiar with the need for criminal organizations to wash, or launder, money. The activities of the Qatari-backed terrorist groups include extortion, slaving, and drug trafficking. Boko Haram, founded by a Qatari proxy now residing in Doha, routinely sells girls into sex slavery. Meanwhile, the Qataris use “slaves” build soccer stadiums in preparation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. These immoral businesses are highly profitable.

Sex trafficking alone has estimated annual proceeds of $32 billion. Given the Qatari penchant for captive/abused labor, and their various links to narcotics cartels from Afghanistan to Argentina, this $32 billion represents only a fraction of the potential revenue from such activities.

Of course, businesses that are found to be laundering money for terrorists and cartels are subject to massive fines. HSBC was fined $1.9 billion for various laundering charges; BNP Paribas was recently fined $8.9 billion for assisting blacklisted countries avoid sanctions.

The public is urged to consider these additional facts concerning American business in Qatar:

  • In 2010, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice-President and COO David Chavern traveled to Doha and “officially commissioned the American Chamber of Commerce there (AmCham Qatar).”
  • Another business group, the US-Qatar Business Council, bills Qatar as “America’s Strongest Partner in the Gulf.” Its members include defense contractors Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing, Doha-based media company Al Jazeera, ExxonMobil, Occidental Petroleum (which was once a client of Al Gore Sr.), Colony Capital (which owns the production company Miramax with the Qatar Investment Authority), and the consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton.
  • In October 2013, Qatar Holding announced it was building a $1 billion stake in Bank of America.
  • For business development overseas, the Chamber of Commerce is routinely assisted by the U.S. Department of State. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, for example, was the keynote speaker at the Chamber’s annual meeting in July 2014. The State Department, under Hillary Clinton, led the Arab Spring with Qatari guidance, resulting in the Muslim Brotherhood assuming power in Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia.

Additionally, Qatar is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell, and profits from operating a virtual slave state. The Arab Spring, a Qatari and American-backed program to install Islamists across the Middle East and North Africa, has led to a veritable diplomatic “crisis” with Israel. John Kerry’s attempt to force Qatar’s (who back Hamas) hatched peace terms on Israel has caused the only democracy in the region to question America’s allegiance to their security.

The QAC Coalition and petitioners ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources. We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.

After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government and the Muslim Brotherhood to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking!

82 YEAR OLD BLACK AMERICAN HAS HAD IT WITH THE DEMOCRATS: ”THEY’VE DESTROYED THE BLACK COMMUNITY”…….

 

Just remember dear heart to vote conservative, not just Republican, because Mitch McConnell has sold all of us down the river.

I voted straight Republican because I have noticed for years what the Democrat Party has done to my people,” she said. “Unemployment is higher in the black community that it is — double with unemployment than it is anywhere else.”

“There’s no way I could continue to say I’m a Christian and stay with the Democrat Party,” she continued. “They advocate the killing of babies and taking from the doers and giving to the ones sitting doing nothing.”

82-Year-Old Black Grandma Votes Republican “Because of What Democrats Have Done to My People”

Mark Levin exposes Mitch McConnell for the liar he is about repealing Obamacare. McConnell stated a couple of years ago that if elected as Senate majority leader, the repealing of Obamacare vote in the senate would only need 51 votes, but on Neil Cavuto’s show the other night, he stated that it’s impossible to repeal in whole because they would need 60 votes which they won’t have. He’s lying through his disingenuous teeth to the people, he hasn’t any desire to repeal Obamacare, unless forced to do so. Hopefully he loses his contest and the GOP still manages to win the senate.

Go to the 37:35  minute mark for Mark’s take on the liar McConnell.

Israel closes Temple Mount to Muslims, Jews following shooting

Police say access to site barred ‘until further notice'; security forces on high alert in capital

Israel decided Wednesday night to prohibit access to the Temple Mount Thursday to both Muslim and Jewish worshipers and visitors until further notice, following the shooting in Jerusalem of Rabbi Yehudah Glick, a right-wing activist with the Temple Mount Faithful.

Jerusalem District Police Commander Moshe Edri together with Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch assessed intelligence reports on the ground, according to a police spokesman, and issued a directive barring Muslims and Jews from accessing the holy site.

TUNISIAN ISLAMIC PARTY ENNAHDA CONCEEDS DEFEAT, LESSON LEARNED FROM EGYPTIAN CRUSHING OF MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD…….

 

Lets just call it a ‘hudna’.

Political pragmatism in the western sense of the word, no not really, self survival in order to fight another day in the Islamic sense, yes really.

Tunisia’s Islamists learned from the Muslim Brotherhood’s failure in Egypt

Tunisia’s Ennahda party, the first Islamist movement to secure power after the 2011 “Arab Spring” revolts, conceded defeat on Monday in elections, perhaps drawing a lesson from the failed power grab of Islamists in Egypt.

Unlike former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, Ennahda’s leader, Rached Ghannouchi, an Islamist scholar who spent decades in exile in Britain, acted pragmatically when faced with overwhelming opposition.

Instead of trying to force his party’s Islamist vision on much of the population that is less religious, Ghannouchi did not overstay his welcome, deciding to continue playing the political game, instead of seizing power in ways reminiscent of Morsi.

His party ruled in a coalition until it was forced to make way for a caretaker government during a political crisis at the start of this year.

THE NETHERLANDS: THE FALLEN MASK OF ‘MODERATE’ MUSLIMS…….

 

Moderate shmoderate.

I have long since stopped using the word ‘moderate’ in relation to Muslims who appear not wanting to subjugate me, their mask is bound to slip whether they’re cognizant of it or not.

moderate-muslim-voice-non-existent

 

NOTE: The following article by Dr.Manfred Gerstenfeld was recently published at Israel National News, and republished here with the author’s consent.

The Netherlands: The Fallen Mask of Moderate Muslims

Manfred Gerstenfeld

The Netherlands is an effective looking glass to bring out many poorly publicized attitudes of parts of the European Muslim community. Events of this past summer have brought several major issues to light. The first one was the public appearance of Dutch Islamo-Nazis, who began openly supporting ISIS and Hamas.1 The second was the support shown for the Islamo-Nazi movement, Hamas, in a variety of public demonstrations. These gatherings, for the most part, were falsely billed as “pro-Gaza” or “anti-Israel” manifestations. Muslims were not the sole participants. Among the co-organizers of these hate-gatherings were sometimes Dutch political parties such as the Green Left2 or the Socialist party.3

Less prominent to the public eye was a third phenomenon: the masks falling off individuals who were formerly perceived as moderates, and who do not have an extremist Muslim background. At first glance, events were perceived as isolated occurrences. However, due to the strong support some of these individuals received, mainly from parts of the Dutch Muslim community, it became clear that the problem of false moderates is bigger than previously thought.

Much media attention was given to a tweet by Yasmina Haifi. Haifi had been a candidate of the Labor party in the 2012 parliamentary elections, although of very low rank and unlikely to be elected. On the 13th of August, she tweeted, “ISIS has nothing to do with Islam…it is a plan of Zionists who want to blacken Islam.”4 Haifi thus tried not only to whiten the world’s most extreme Islamo-Nazi movement, but in addition, tried to spread a conspiracy theory about Jews, for which she used the term “Zionists”.

The Netherlands, like much of Western Europe, is fertile ground for conspiracy theories about Jews and Israel. Five million adult Dutchmen think that Israel is “in the process of exterminating the Palestinians”.5 When asked in a poll whether or not they agree with such a statement, they answer affirmatively – but remain largely passive regarding their opinion. Haifi, however, actively spread her conspiracy theory.

The Haifi tweet received much attention because she was employed as a project manager in NCTV, the main anti-terror organization of the Dutch government. When she was subsequently suspended from her position6, the Haifi affair got a new turn. A website was established to support her.7

A remark posted to the site by a commentator under the fictitious name Nizar Mourabit read that while he agrees that ISIS doesn’t represent either Islam or modern Muslims, he insists that ISIS being “a Zionist conspiracy is not true”.

The site moderator removed the comment, writing, “This site is meant for people who support Haifi, thus for those who believe there is a relationship between Zionism and ISIS”.8 The so-called quality Dutch daily, NRC, then interviewed the site moderator, Ismail Selvi, who had in the past been expelled from the Dutch military academy. 9 The paper apparently thought it necessary to give a platform to Haifi’s absurd fantasies. At that moment, there were about 6,800 supporters of the website. Haifi subsequently left the Labor party, most probably because she was afraid that she would be expelled.10

Another so-called moderate Dutch Muslim who lost her mask is Fatima Elatik, a Labor party politician. In the past, in an official function she held, Elatik helped provide funds for the cleanup of an old Jewish cemetery in Amsterdam. This summer, however, she actively participated in one of the pro-Hamas demonstrations, one of those masked as anti-Israel demonstrations. While attending the demonstration, she was seen publicly embracing a friend who was wearing a t-shirt with the logo “Free Palestine – Stop Genocide”.11

The organization Moroccan Dutchmen (SMN), representing the Moroccan immigrant community, supported Elatik. They considered it scandalous that Esther Voet, the head of the pro-Israel lobby, CIDI, had criticized Elatik, who, in SMN’s opinion, the Jews should consider their ally in the fight against anti-Semitism.12 The SMN apparently thinks that Elatik helping the Jewish community clean an old cemetery is a valid counterweight against Elatik participating in a demonstration which supports the mass murder propagandists of Hamas.

Garnering less attention, but still of importance, was an interview published in the Dutch daily, Parool, with Tofik Dibi, a former parliamentarian of the Green Left party.13 During the interview, Dibi admitted that he was becoming radicalized. He remained silent, however, about the fact that Hamas propagates the murder of Jews and that the closure of Gaza is the result of Hamas attacks on Israel and not the reverse. Later on, Dibi wrote that the behavior of the Israeli government should be qualified in the same way as that of ISIS.14 That kind of statement was only possible because the Dutch press rarely, if ever, mentions the similarity in genocidal ideology between ISIS and Hamas. When Dibi was still a Dutch parliamentarian, he had proposed that Jews should learn about the Nakba, while Muslims should learn about the Holocaust. Dibi conveniently forgot, however, that not only did the Nakba not take place in the Netherlands but that it was the result of the failure of the Palestinians and of their Arab allies to succeed at their plan of mass murder of all Jews living in Israel.

A more marginal Dutch political figure whose character was revealed is Chahid Soliman. In the past, he had been a public representative of the Green Left party in the town of Oosterhout. In August, he posted to his Facebook the following: “To be clear, ISIS, Boko Haram and Netanyahu are, for me, the same.” “Stop the Israeli smuggle of weapons via Amsterdam airport. Netherlands, do not become guilty of the Gazacaust.” And also, “Solidarity with Yasmina Haifi. ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. It is a plan of Zionists to blacken Islam.”

Soliman had even more to say on Facebook: “Auschwitz was full of millionaires.” “A pity that Hitler didn’t finish his work.” And finally, “We wait for the return of Hitler.” The latter ones he removed after a day or so. 15

In Yemen, the security situation has got so bad that the country is on the brink of a fully-fledged civil war. In the month since Shiite Houthi rebels took control of the capital Sanaa, they have gained more ground. Meanwhile, al Qaeda’s Yemen branch is portraying itself as the champion of the Sunni population. In this war for territory, religion and political domination, the central government appears powerless.

GERMAN MEDIA INTERVIEW ISLAMIC STATE RECRUITER: DEMOCRACY IS FOR INFIDELS…….

 

Pious Muslim reads same koran, hadiths and sira, concluding that democracy is unIslamic. 

jihadi speaks

 

But first, look at how the German magazine, Spiegel Online, is at pains to qualify the mindset of the jihadi being interviewed (in a de facto defensive move for Islam):

For Salafists like Abu Sattar, the Koran is the only valid law. They are literalists and refuse to interpret scripture, much less to abstract from it. Abu Sattar and the Islamic State idealize the Muslim community that existed during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad, believing that it was the epitome of Islamic practice and that the religion was only able to rapidly expand for that reason. Islamic State would like to revive that interpretation and emulate the early Muslims.

The journalist, by de fault, would like you to believe that all four primary schools of orthodox Islamic jurisprudence Hanbali, Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, do in fact interpret Islamic texts, in spite of the fact that ijtihad is indeed closed (here also), and those who dare state otherwise, risk assassination like any apostate from Islam.

Interview with an Islamic State Recruiter: ‘Democracy Is For Infidels’

Interview Conducted by Hasnain Kazim

An image grab from an Islamic State propaganda video.

AFP/ al-Furqan Media

An image grab from an Islamic State propaganda video.

How does Islamic State think? How do its followers see the world? SPIEGEL ONLINE met up with an Islamic State recruiter in Turkey to hear about the extremist group’s vision for the future.

The conditions laid out by the Islamist are strict: no photos and no audio recording. He also keeps his real name secret as well as his country of origin, and is only willing to disclose that he is Arab. His English is polished and he speaks with a British accent.

He calls himself Abu Sattar, appears to be around 30 years old and wears a thick, black beard that reaches down to his chest. His top lip is shaved as is his head and he wears a black robe that stretches all the way to the floor. He keeps a copy of the Koran, carefully wrapped in black cloth, in his black leather bag.

Abu Sattar recruits fighters for the terrorist militia Islamic State in Turkey. Radical Islamists travel to Turkey from all over the world to join the “holy war” in Iraq or Syria and Abu Sattar examines their motives and the depth of their religious beliefs. Several Islamic State members independently recommended Abu Sattar as a potential interview partner — as someone who could explain what Islamic State stands for. Many see him as something like an ideological mentor.

He only agreed to an interview following a period of hesitation. But after agreeing to a time and saying he would name a place in due time, he let the appointment fall through. The next day, though, he arranged another meeting time, to take place in a public venue. And this time, he appears: a man with brown eyes behind frameless glasses. He seems self-confident and combative. He orders a tea and, throughout the duration of our meeting, slides his wooden prayer beads through his hands.

Why don’t they make a more interesting and more truthful documentary about apostates from Islam, who know exactly what Islam dictates, and their hellish ride to freedom, and victimization from former co-religionists? Alas, that wouldn’t sit well with mohammedan horde.

NOTE: What would happen to the BBC if it ran a radio program during WWII about British women joining the National Socialist Party, covering their ups and downs in family/neighbor relations as they don the swastika arm band and spread their creed?

THE WESTERN MEDIA’S THIN VENEER OF ‘PALESTINIAN HAPLESSNESS’ HOLDS THE ARABS TO LOWER STANDARDS…….

 

It’s the soft racism of lower expectations.

Or as Dr.Manfred Gerstenfeld terms it: Humanitarian Racism:

“A humanitarian racist is best defined as someone who attributes intrinsically reduced responsibility for their acts to people of certain ethnic or national groups. This racism is a mirror image of the white-supremacist variety. Humanitarian racists consider—usually without saying so explicitly—that only white people can be fully responsible for their actions; nonwhites such as the Palestinians cannot (or can but only to a limited extent).

New York Times Editor Admits Holding Palestinians to a Lower Standard

TAMAR STERNTHAL October 29, 2014, 11:29 pm 3

Tamar Sternthal is the director of the Israel Office of CAMERA

A favored topic at The New York Times is the purported racism of Israeli society at large. It has been the topic, again and again, of Op-Eds, editorials and news stories. Conversely, Times editors seem ever reluctant to approach the subject of Palestinian racism, although there is no dearth of material there.

Why this discrepancy?

Times opinion editor Matt Seaton today provided a window into the mindset of the editors in his response to a query by this media analyst about whether readers “can expect two hit pieces on Palestinian in racism in the next month” in keeping with the pace of the publication of (error-ridden) screeds about Israeli racism, both real and imagined.

Seaton, a former editor at the Guardian, known for its hostile treatment of Israel, tweeted back that The Times opinion pages would cover Palestinian racism as “soon as they have [a] sovereign state to discriminate with.”

The editor’s stunning admission that he considers Palestinians exempt from scrutiny due to their stateless existence followed the Oct. 27 publication of yet another Op-Ed which accused Israeli society as being racist. About Rula Jebreal’s Oct. 27 (“Minority life in Israel”), Seaton tweeted: “Often overlooked, an insight into the life of one-fifth of Israeli citizens who are Palestinian.”

seaton

“Often overlooked?” The Times last devoted an Op-Ed to alleged Israeli racism on the part of Israeli society at large barely a month ago (“How Israel Silences Dissent,” Sept. 26). A mere four weeks ago, Mairav Zonszein wrote in The Times: “Israeli society has been unable and unwilling to overcome an exclusivist ethno-religious nationalism that privileges Jewish citizens.” (Emphasis added.)

EGYPT TO DEMOLISH OVER 800 HOMES ON SINAI BORDER TO MONITOR TUNNEL DIGGING…….

 

Israel builds a moderate security fence to keep the jihadis out, and the world goes ballistic, the Egyptians demolish numerous Sinai homes for easy monitoring of a buffer zone, and the world is silent. So where are the nut-jobs who run the Finnish branch of ICAHD, the organization that’s against house demolitions?

Crickets chirping……especially the ones inside Syksy Räsänen’s head.

syksy

The planned buffer zone will reportedly stretch along the length of the 13km (eight mile) border.

Those who refuse to leave their homes within the deadline set by the authorities will have their property seized by force.

North Sinai’s governor, General Abdel-Fattah Harhoor, said on Wednesday that 800 homes in the border city of Rafah had been evacuated.

Egypt demolishes Sinai homes for Gaza border buffer

Military operation to create buffer zone in RafahBuildings in the planned buffer zone are being demolished by the military

Egypt has begun demolishing homes along its border with the Gaza Strip as part of a planned 500m buffer zone that is intended to prevent weapons smuggling.

Residents living along the border with the Palestinian territory have been given 48 hours – and promised compensation – to leave their homes.

The buffer will include water-filled trenches to prevent tunnelling.

Egyptian media accuses Gaza’s Hamas administration of aiding militants in Sinai. Hamas denies the charge.

Last week, more than 30 Egyptian soldiers were killed in a militant bomb attack on an army post in Sinai.

After the bombing, Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi passed a law authorising the military to protect state facilities – including power plants, main roads and bridges.

He also declared a three-month state of emergency in Sinai. Critics of the move said it allows the army to return to the streets and brings back military trials for civilians.

UNRWA COMMISSIONER TO SPEAK IN FINLAND 30-31 OCTOBER 2014…….

 

Finnish leaders rubbing elbows with anti-Semites.

tuomioja shhh

It’s easy to understand, Finland, for a tiny state, is one of the bigger clapping seals for anything UN, it’s Foreign Minister, Erkki Tuomioja, a long time tick on the neck of the Finnish body politic, is highly antagonistic towards the Jewish state.

Finland is one of UNRWA’s 20 top donors – the largest are the United States, the European Union and Saudi Arabia. This year, Finland’s assistance to the organization is 6.4 million euros, of which 4.5 million euros is so-called non-earmarked general funding for the organization’s basic functions such as children’s education, and the rest is emergency humanitarian aid for the crises in Syria and Gaza.

UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl to visit Finland

Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East UNRWA will visit Finland on 30–31 October.

Mr. Krähenbühl will meet among others with Prime Minister Alexander Stubb and Minister for Foreign Affairs Erkki Tuomioja, and he will have talks about UNRWA’s activities and the situation in the Middle East at public servant level. In addition, Krähenbühl will meet representatives of Finnish non-governmental organizations and he will be the keynote speaker at a panel on the situation in Gaza organized jointly by the Finnish Institute of International Affairs and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

Finland supports UNRWA’s activities as part of its humanitarian assistance. The organization provides basic services to some five million Palestinian refugees in the West Bank, Gaza, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. It plays a key role in safeguarding the rights of Palestinian refugees and helps stabilize the region. UNRWA’s mission is also to provide emergency assistance to the victims of conflicts in the difficult conditions of the region. Ministery of Foreign Affairs.

All this comes on the heels of the Malala Yousafazi donating her Nobel Peace Prize money to the UNRWA. Some would say that she was ”just acting on her Muslim faith and culture”, and while that may be true (her handlers have every incentive to steer her in that direction as well), she is in fact a bona fide Marxist, so she has two totalitarian impulses directing her actions.

Historic 32nd congress of Pakistani section of IMT – First Day

Message from Malala

Comrade Javed Iqbal, a Pakistani comrade from Birmingham in the UK, intervened to read out a message that had been sent from Malala Yousafzai, the young sympathiser of the Marxist Tendency famous for her part in the struggle for the right to education for girls in Pakistan. She had taken part in the national Marxist Summer School in July of last year in Swat. She was tragically shot in the head in a barbaric attack by fundamentalists, and made headlines worldwide. She is now thankfully recovering in the UK.
The message she sent reads as follows:
“First of all I’d like to thank The Struggle and the IMT for giving me a chance to speak last year at their Summer Marxist School in Swat and also for introducing me to Marxism and Socialism. I just want to say that in terms of education, as well as other problems in Pakistan, it is high time that we did something to tackle them ourselves. It’s important to take the initiative. We cannot wait around for any one else to come and do it. Why are we waiting for someone else to come and fix things? Why aren’t we doing it ourselves?
“I would like to send my heartfelt greetings to the congress. I am convinced Socialism is the only answer and I urge all comrades to take this struggle to a victorious conclusion. Only this will free us from the chains of bigotry and exploitation.”
This was also one of the several moving moments of the congress. A close friend of Malala was also present at the congress, who was on the bus when the girls were attacked. She spoke, making some comments and reading out a poem. This young female comrade is an example of the calibre of comrades that belong to the IMT in Pakistan.

So as the TT’s good friend, Doris Wise Montrose, said about her, ”be careful for who you swoon ”.

TERRORIST ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT ON PROMINENT RIGHT-WING ACTIVIST AFTER INCITEMENT FROM ABBAS…….

Following the assassination attempt in Jerusalem of right-wing activist Yehuda Glick, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich and Jerusalem Police Chief Moshe Edri ordered the closing of the Temple Mount to Jews and Arabs until further notice. The decision was taken due to intelligence assessments and security concerns at the site.

An increased number of police and border police will patrol Jerusalem on Thursday.

Aharonovitch called for calm and urged everyone, including politicians and public figures, not to incite the situation. Thursday, “will not be a simple day,” he said.

Early Thursday morning Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Edri and Aharonovich and with the head of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) Yoram Cohen. Netanyahu ordered that the highest priority should be given to capture those responsible for shooting Glick, and that security personnel should be significantly increased in the capital.

 A presser from The Israel Project:

It looks like a major figure on the Israeli right – an American-born activist named Yehuda Glick – has been the victim of a terrorist assassination attempt. The shooter pulled up on a motorbike as Glick was leaving the Begin Center and shot him in the chest. The last two updates I saw had Glick in “serious and unstable condition” and then “undergoing surgery and stabilizing.”

Glick is a controversial figure linked to movements that advocate Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. His supporters say he’s a gentle guy who leads groups of tourists around the area. His detractors say he’s a Jewish fanatic who want to desecrate Muslim holy sites on the Temple Mount and start World War III (really that’s the description, per some of the more colorful Al Jazeera reports). That entire debate will go by the wayside as the story develops, since “he’s not mainstream so he had it coming” is not really a tenable point.

Instead: the Israelis have been warning for months that Palestinian incitement – specifically as it relates to Jerusalem and even more specifically as it relates to the Temple Mount – was playing with fire. President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah have both personally given speeches in the last few weeks accusing Jews of engaging in dark conspiracies to “Judaize” Jerusalem and “desecrate” the Temple Mount. Two weeks ago Abbas went so far as to urge Palestinians to prevent Jews from entering the area “in any way.” See the bottom for links to stories about the speeches.

Netanyahu was so alarmed he used his own speech at the opening of the Knesset on Monday to emphasize that (1) Israel has no designs on the Temple Mount and (2) incitement about Jerusalem was going to lead to a disaster. Now you’ve got one of the top figures associated with Jews entering the Temple Mount gunned down.

If it really is a terrorist attack, the Israelis are very quickly going to link it to Abbas’s more or less explicit exhortations. Two weeks ago he called on Palestinians to prevent Jews from going up to the Temple Mount “in any way.” Today a major Jewish figure who regularly goes up to the Temple Mount gets shot. The line is not going to be difficult to draw.

Just for context and so you have the links handy:

“For more than two years it informed all Muslims and Arabs, at an official and public level about the nature of the Judaization plan at the Al-Aqsa Mosque (i.e., the Temple Mount Plaza)… The Israeli government has been carrying out this plan on a daily basis, and the rate of escalation and repression against Al-Aqsa is increasing… towards dividing it (the Temple Mount) geographically and according to time (allocating times and spaces for different religions), destroying it and building what is referred to as ‘the Temple’ in its place.”

Participating in a meeting of Nordic and Baltic prime ministers ahead of the Nordic Council’s 66th Session in Stockholm, Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt said that Denmark is not prepared to recognize Palestine as a state.

“We all have the same goal of creating peace in the Middle East. In Denmark, we also support a two-state solution, but we have chosen another direction and we stand by that. But it is important to say that every country makes its own decisions on this question but we all agree on the same goal: creating peace in the Middle East,” Thorning-Schmidtsaid at a press conference.

According to Swedish media, Norwegian PM Erma Solberg also said that Norway would not recognize Palestine before a two-state solution was ready.

R.I.P DEAR SIR.

My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of this man.

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo laid to rest in Hamilton

WATCH ABOVE: Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was standing guard at Ottawa’s National War Memorial when he was killed last week. The reverend who led his funeral service on Tuesday said the 24-year-old’s bravery and sacrifice were not in vain. Mike Drolet reports.

TORONTO – A military funeral for Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, fatally shot while on duty at Ottawa’s National War Memorial last week, took place in his hometown of Hamilton Tuesday.

Scroll down for our live blog recap with full coverage from the funeral

Thousands honoured Cirillo by lining the funeral procession route, which began at the Argyll Commemorative Pavilion at Bayfront Park at 11 a.m. ET.

The procession travelled south along Bay St. North, east along York Blvd, and north along James St. North, ending at Christ’s Church Cathedral around noon.

Members of his regiment — the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders — surrounded the fallen soldier’s casket along the procession route Tuesday morning as they made their way to the cathedral.

Cirillo grew up in Hamilton with his mother, two sisters and step-father, according to the funeral program. He enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces Primary Reserve in 2006 with The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada (Princess Lousie’s) after demonstrating a “passion for the military” from an early age, it said.

LORI LOWENTHAL MARCUS: US GOVT INCREASES SECURITY AS ‘LONE WOLVES’ COME HOME TO ROOST…….

 

It’s exactly that.

Every regular reader of this blog knows very well about Marcus’ article from May 2013, Jihadi Mein Kampf, where she informs of a shift in al-Qaida’s hierarchical structure, as well as a move towards ”individual terrorism”. Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, also known as abu Musab al Suri, is the mastermind behind the shift, ”lone wolves” are now the preferred method of attack .

US Govt Increases Security as ‘Lone Wolves’ Come Home to Roost

US DHS Secretary ramps up security at government buildings in response to Islamists’ call for western supporters to attack coalition governments.

The United States Department of Homeland Security has ordered enhanced security at U.S. government buildings in the nation’s capital and elsewhere around the country.

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson announced on Tuesday, Oct. 28, that the increased security is a “precautionary step” in response to the continued public calls on supporters in western countries by ISIS and other Islamist terrorist organizations to attack soldiers, police and other official representatives of the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS.

“Given world events, prudence dictates a heightened vigilance in the protection of U.S. government installations and our personnel,” Johnson announced.

This latest step-up in security is an admission that the public effort to minimize recent terrorist assaults on government representatives in both Canada and the U.S. as the act of “lone wolves” who have “self-radicalized” is simply an effort to soothe citizens, but is neither realistic nor is it believed by those issuing the verbal balm.

Even the statement announcing this directive continued to downplay the seriousness with which the government should be taking the lone wolf threat, “guarding against potential small-scale attacks by a lone offender or a small group of individuals.”

UKIP’S NIGEL FARAGE: THE LAST EU COMMISSION TO GOVERN BRITAIN…….

 

Amen.

collapsing EU

h/t: Gaia

Transcript:

Mr Juncker, as you present this morning your new Commission, you tell us that they’re all in the Last-Chance Saloon. Well, I’ll tell you what, I’ll come and see you there. But you’re going to have to introduce me to them, because this is pretty much a bunch of non-entities, unknown. I spoke to MEPs this morning who will be voting later, and most of them couldn’t even name half of them.

And the one from Britian is so obscure, his name, Lord Hill should be Lord Who, because the British public couldn’t pick the bloke out of a line-up and he’s never been elected to anything in his life, which means he’s perfect for the job – because I don’t think that the European public or commentators understand what the European Commission really is.

The Commission is the Executive, it is the Government of Europe, and it has the sole rights to propose legislation; it does so in consultation with 3000 secret committees, staffed mainly by big business and big capital, and all the legislation is proposed in secret.

And once something becomes a European law, it is the European Commission themselves who have the sole right to propose repeal or change of that legislation.

The Community Method which you championed this morning, the means by which the European Commission makes law and holds law, is actually the very enemy of the concept of democracy itself. Because it means in any member state there is nothing the electorate can do to change a single piece of European law.

So we’ll be voting against the Commission today, not on the basis of the individuals, but on the basis of the fact that it is a fundamentally un-, in fact, anti-democratic form of government.

I suspect you’re in for a tough time with this Commission. You are going to have the euro crisis, which has not gone away and is going to get worse.

And you are also going to have the UK debate, when now it hs become unacceptable to the vast majority of British citizens for there to be total free movement of people extended to half a billion people to come to Britain.

Mr Cameron masquerades as being an EU opponent, though I note this morning that the Conservatives are so brave that they are even going to abstain.

I think this will be the last European Commission that governs Britain, because within the end of these five years we will be out of here.

Thank you.
