Fleeing Tyranny or Bringing it with Them?

by Khadija Khan  •  May 31, 2017 at 5:00 am
  • Many newcomers to Canada and Europe are demanding laws similar to those from which they claim to be seeking refuge.
  • Newcomers soon start demanding privileges. They ask for gender segregation at work and in educational institutions; they ask for faith schools (madrasas), and demand an end to any criticism of their extremist practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM), forced marriages, child marriages and inciting hatred for other religions. They call any criticism "Islamophobia". They seek to establish a parallel justice system such as sharia courts. They are also unlikely, on different pretexts, to support any anti-terror or anti-extremism programs. They seem to focus only on criticizing the policies of West.
  • It is now the responsibility of Western governments to curb this growing turbulence of religious fundamentalism. Western governments need to require "hardline" Muslims to follow the laws of the land. Extremists need to be stopped from driving civilization to a collision course before the freedoms, for which so many have worked so hard and sacrificed so much are -- through indifference or political opportunism -- completely abolished

Terror attacks and other offshoots of Islamic extremism have created an atmosphere of mistrust between Europe's natives and thousands of those who entered European countries to seek shelter.
The situation is turning the Europeans against their own governments and against those advocating help for the war-torn migrants who have been arriving.
Europeans are turning hostile towards the idea of freedom and peaceful coexistence; they have apparently been seeing newcomers as seeking exceptions to the rules and culture of West.
In an unprecedented shift in policy after public fury about security, the German government decided to shut down the mosque where the terrorist who rammed a truck into a shopping market in Berlin, Anis Amri, was radicalized before hecommitted the crime.

Analysts Sound New Alarms on North Korea Missile Threat

  • The North Koreans now have the range capability to strike the United States with a ballistic missile. "It is a matter of physics and math." — USAF General John Hyten, Commander of United States Strategic Command, May 9, 2017.
  • "A major headache for the United States is that much of the financial and technological support for North Korea's weapons programs comes from China." — Joseph Bosco, Senior Fellow at the ICAS Institute for Korea-American studies.

North Korea just conducted its seventh missile test launch so far this year. No one should expect this activity to cease, and no one should be surprised by North Korea's progressively more advanced weapons capabilities, analysts said at a recent Mitchell Institute forum on Capitol Hill, hosted by the author.
"During Kim Jung Un's five years in power he has done twice, perhaps three times, as many launches of missiles as his father did in 18 years," said Bruce Klingner, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
The North Korean dictator is not showing any signs of slowing down, and he is determined to push forward the country's program to enhance the medium and long-range missiles and nuclear warheads that now threaten the United States and its allies.

UK: The Lessons of Manchester

by Robbie Travers  •  May 31, 2017 at 4:00 am
  • While Corbyn seems to be saying that Britain's foreign policy is the reason the United Kingdom is being targeted by Islamists, this view seems to be at odds with what the Islamists themselves have said. The Islamic State's propaganda magazine, Dabiq, explained perfectly clearly: "The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam."
  • Defending what we value would seem the better choice.

Here we are again. According to the analysis of the newly elected Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham, the Manchester suicide bomber "was a terrorist, not a Muslim" -- despite all evidence to the contrary. After yet another mass casualty terrorist attack, elected leaders seems unable to attribute any of these attacks to the supremacist ideology that caused it: radical Islam.
At what point does an individual cease to be a Muslim and start to become a terrorist? Is there a definitive moment? Why can an individual not be a Muslim and a terrorist. Especially if that individual says he is?
Or is this just a racism of lowered expectations?
Refusing to name the problem also takes power away from Muslim reformers who are seeking to remove violence and bigotry from Islam, as well as other religious demands under which they would prefer not live -- such as the lack of free speech, lack of separation of powers, subjugation of women and death penalty for apostasy.


WEDNESDAY Security Update: DHS Secretary - "You'd never leave the house" if you knew what I know about terrorism

FSM Must Reads + 2012 site


Instead, the plan was to harp on three other "i" words, specifically that Russia intervened, interfered, and influenced the 2016 presidential election, essentially rendering its result invalid. Above all, they were clearly ordered to never ever explain, not the smallest detail, about how exactly the Russians did these things.

"This system is vitally important to the defense of our homeland, and this test demonstrates that we have a capable, credible deterrent against a very real threat," he said.

When I turned on my computer that day and caught a glimpse of "...attack... 22 dead, 59 wounded...I thought the dateline would be Baghdad or Idlib. After reading my emails, I came back to the death toll... in Manchester

How ironic that the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals would choose the day after a man whose family immigrated from Libya conducted a murderous attack in Manchester, England to block President Trump's effort to prevent such individuals from coming here.

Obama's Egypt speech left our enemies encouraged, quickly recognizing he was no Theodore Roosevelt. They saw he intended to "speak softly" and not "carry a big stick." Contrastingly, Trump chose Saudi Arabia to announce an American foreign policy viewing global terrorism through a much sharper lens.

In the months before weeping little girls with nails in their faces were carried out of the Manchester Arena, the authorities of that city were hard at work fighting the dreaded threat of Islamophobia.

Tillerson went on to explain why Trump is so keen to make a deal. "We solve the Israeli-Palestinian peace dilemma, we start solving a lot of the peace throughout the Middle East region," he said.

Georgetown University Professor Jonathan Brown, already notorious for past scandalous comments justifying Islamic slavery (including rape), only worsened his reputation with a recent May 8 lecture.


Trump and Leaks: The president must take aggressive steps to stop a grave national security threat

The president has it exactly right. He is facing an unprecedented campaign by career government employees to sabotage his presidency with a flood of leaks to the press of classified and confidential information.

Pakistan sees no role for the U.S in the future of Afghanistan

The U.S. cannot win in Afghanistan unless there is a significant change in the strategic environment because Pakistan, through its support of the Taliban, regulates the operational tempo of the conflict and the supplies essential to sustain our troops in Afghanistan transit Pakistani territory.

The UK's Libyan Jihadist Problem

Daniel Greenfield's article: The UK's Libyan Jihadist Problem

Link to Sultan Knish

Posted: 30 May 2017 06:41 PM PDT
There was a ticking time bomb in Manchester. The old manufacturing city had become a safe space for Libyan Islamic terrorists with the knowledge and complicity of British authorities

Before being one of the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists, Osama bin Laden’s Libyan body double had been living in Manchester. Anas al-Libi, a Libyan Al Qaeda terrorist, had received political asylum in the UK. Two years after he masterminded the bombings of American embassies in Africa, Manchester police turned up what would become known as the Manchester Document in his possession.

“Explosives are the safest weapon for the holy warriors. They strike the enemy with sheer terror and fright,” the Al Qaeda manual advised.

This was the advice that the “holy warriors” of Islam utilized against teenage girls in Manchester. The Islamic terrorist who carried out the massacre was a scion of the same terror group as Anas al-Libi.

When American forces finally caught up to Anas al-Libi, he was with the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. But the LIFG was just as active in Manchester as it was in Tripoli. Manchester had long been a base for the Islamist terror group. And it comes as little surprise that Ramadan Abedi, the father of Manchester Arena suicide bomber Salman Abedi, currently in Libya, was also allegedly an LIFG member.

Despite LIFG’s blatant affiliation with Al Qaeda, its members were freely able to operate in the UK. Manchester, with its expat Libyan community, was a perfect base for the Islamic terror group.

Salman Abedi prayed at the Didsbury Mosque where his father Ramadan had been the muezzin. Salah Aboaoba, an LIFG member, claimed to have fundraised at the Didsbury Mosque. A friend who met Ramadan at the mosque described him fighting in the LIFG with the “Manchester fighters.” According to him, “Three-quarters of the fighters at the beginning of the revolution were from Manchester.”

The Didsbury Mosque based out of the former Albert Park Methodist Chapel is led by Imam Mustafa Graf who was accused of fighting in the Libyan Civil War. Graf had signed on to a petition to free “our brother Shaker Aamer”. Aamer is an Al Qaeda terrorist who had been held in Gitmo and had served under Ibn al-Sheikh al-Libi of the LIFG. In Manchester, Islamic terror begins and ends with the LIFG.

And not only in Manchester. Abdelhakim Belhadj, the Emir of the LIFG, was living in London. That’s also where the LIFG’s Al-Wasat propaganda newspaper was being published.

The British authorities had a complicated relationship with the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group that was conditional not on its terrorism, but on their approach to the Libyan government. The authorities viewed the LIFG as a potential resource when Gaddafi was an enemy despite the group’s ties to Al Qaeda. During that period, its Islamic terrorists were portrayed as political dissidents.

When a deal was reached with Gaddafi, LIFG was suddenly no longer welcome in the United Kingdom and some of its Jihadists even found themselves on a plane back to Libya. Once the UK got behind the Arab Spring, the LIFG was once again a band of plucky Islamist rebels overthrowing a dictator.

But the LIFG never veered from its Islamist ambitions. And its whitewashing by American and British authorities was the crime that led to both Benghazi and the Manchester Arena bombing.

Not to mention the takeover of portions of Libya by ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

In ’03, Gaddafi cut a deal to disarm his WMD program. The insane Libyan dictator wanted to avoid becoming Bush’s next target. It was a wise decision. Not only did it benefit Libya economically and avoid a war, but the Libyan Jihadists who had been harbored in the UK suddenly became unwanted nuisances. The UK was now doing business with Gaddafi and it was happy to trade terrorists for contracts.

But the Bush era gave way to the age of Obama. And the two men had very different ideas about foreign policy. Obama’s New Beginning embraced an Islamist political continuum that began with the Muslim Brotherhood running for office and ended with armed Jihadists taking over entire countries.

Once again, Gaddafi proved surprisingly savvy and adaptable. As Obama rolled out the welcome wagon for the Muslim Brotherhood, he cut a deal with the LIFG and the Muslim Brotherhood. The LIFG renounced its former Al Qaeda ties and became “moderate” Islamists under the Brotherhood.

LIFG Jihadists from Gitmo and the UK who had been turned over to Gaddafi were freed. But when the Muslim Brotherhood was unable to take over countries “legally”, it turned to violence. And Obama was eager to lend military aid to its efforts. The LIFG quickly switched back to a Jihadist insurgency and Libya fell into the hands of Jihadi organizations whose names were many, but who often had an LIFG link.

When the United States mission in Benghazi came under attack, leading the assault was Ahmed Abu Khattala. Khattala, like so many prominent Libyan Jihadists, had his roots in the LIFG. He was released as part of the Brotherhood’s “moderation” deal for the LIFG. The Americans who died in Benghazi were casualties of the Arab Spring and of Obama’s empowerment of Islamists across the region.

But the LIFG wasn’t done yet.

The British had incorrectly viewed the LIFG as a Libyan organization. But it was part of a global Jihadi movement. Its interconnections with Al Qaeda should have made that clear. The Manchester Arena bombing was the final brutal proof. Libyan Jihadists had no intention of stopping in Libya.

While Osama bin Laden lived under Pakistani protection, Al Qaeda was largely being run by Atiyah Abd al Rahman. Rahman was Al Qaeda’s chief of operations and a senior LIFG leader. As Obama’s Arab Spring was unleashed, the LIFG leader wrote a letter to Osama where he celebrated that, “Brothers from the Libyan Fighting Group and others are out of jail.”

“There has been an active Jihadist Islamic renaissance underway in Eastern Libya (Benghazi, Derna, Bayda and that area) for some time, just waiting for this kind of opportunity. We think the brothers’ activities, their names, and their ‘recordings’ will start to show up soon,” Rahman predicted.

On Rahman’s list of Islamic terrorists who wanted to go to Libya was fellow LIFG terrorist Anas al-Libi.

This was the newly moderate LIFG. LIFG Islamists in Libya won support from the US and the UK as they adopted “political roles”, but the moderate LIFG lie blew up in the Manchester Arena. Like many other Islamic terror attacks, its immediate cause was the harboring of Islamic activists in Western countries.

The UK had courted the LIFG. Then it had temporarily cracked down. Then it embraced it again. UK courts have demanded large payouts to LIFG Islamists deported back to Libya. But the Manchester Arena bombing by the scion of an LIFG family exacted an even heavier toll on innocent Britons.

The Manchester Arena bombing is yet another lesson about the cost of collaborating with Islamic terrorists. It should end our support for LIFG Islamists, Libya Dawn and its puppet regime. LIFG and Libyan Muslim Brotherhood members operating in the US and the UK should be investigated and expelled.

Our death toll from the Libyan Islamist intervention stands at 27 dead and over a hundred injured. We must ensure that the girls who died in Manchester will be the last of our casualties in that Islamist war.

Eye on Iran: Syrian Rebels Say U.S., Allies Sending More Arms To Fend Off Iran Threat

View our videos on YouTube


Syrian rebels say the United States and its allies are sending them more arms to try to fend off a new push into the southeast by Iran-backed militias aiming to open an overland supply route between Iraq and Syria. The stakes are high as Iran seeks to secure its influence from Tehran to Beirut in a "Shi'ite crescent" of Iranian influence through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, where Sunni Arab states have lost out in power struggles with Iran. Tensions escalated in the southeastern region of Syria, known as the Badia, this month when government forces supported by Iraqi Shi'ite militias deployed in a challenge to rebels backed by President Bashar al-Assad's enemies. This has coincided with a march toward the Syrian border by Shi'ite militias from Iraq. They reached the frontier adjoining northern Syria on Monday. A top Iraqi militia commander said a wider operation to take the area from Sunni jihadist Islamic State would start on Tuesday and this would help Syria's army.

An influx of cash that was the byproduct of the deal Iran struck with a group of world powers to curtail its nuclear program may not be changing the way Iran goes about wielding influence across the Middle East and beyond. A top U.S. military official says rather than using any additional monies to invest more heavily in conventional forces, there are indications Tehran continues to focus on cultivating special operators to help lead and direct proxy forces. "If anything, increased defense dollars in Iran are likely to go toward increasing that network, looking for ways to expand it," U.S. Special Operation Forces Vice Commander Lieutenant General Thomas Trask told an audience in Washington late Tuesday.

Just 10 days after President Donald Trump called on Muslim countries to stand united against Iran, a public feud between Qatar and some of its Gulf Arab neighbors is jolting his attempt to tip the regional balance of power against Tehran. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are incensed by Qatar's conciliatory line on Iran, their regional arch rival, and its support for Islamist groups, in particular the Muslim Brotherhood, which they regard as a dangerous political enemy. The bickering among the Sunni states erupted after Trump attended a summit of Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia where he denounced Shi'ite Iran's "destabilizing interventions" in Arab lands, where Tehran is locked in a tussle with Riyadh for influence.


The lawyer for a charity formed to promote the history and culture of Iran told a jury on Tuesday that the U.S. government was trying to destroy it by seeking to seize a skyscraper that provides most of its revenue. "This misguided case is looking to wipe us off the face of the planet," attorney John Gleeson told jurors at the start of a civil trial to determine the fate of the 36-story office building near Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. "Something is deeply wrong in this case." Gleeson urged jurors to reject the arguments of Assistant U.S. Attorney Martin Bell, who said the building's operation has violated U.S. economic sanctions imposed against Iran in 1995. The U.S. government wants to turn over proceeds from a sale of the building and other properties to holders of more than $5 billion in terrorism-related judgments against the government of Iran, including claims brought by the estates of victims killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Jurors in Manhattan federal court on Tuesday settled in for a weeks-long trial to decide the fate of a Manhattan office tower built for the shah of Iran, which the U.S. government is trying to seize for the benefit of people who have won terrorism-related court judgments against Iran. The government claims the nonprofit Alavi Foundation, the majority owner of 650 Fifth Avenue, knowingly acted on behalf of the government of Iran, violating U.S. sanctions. In an opening statement on Tuesday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Martin Bell told jurors that Alavi knew that its co-owner, Assa Corp, was backed by Iran's state-controlled Bank Melli and was an agent of Iran's government. He urged jurors to hold Alavi "accountable" for funneling money to Iran and providing other services.

Islamic State's self-declared caliphate in eastern Syria is surrounded by some of the world's strongest military powers. Their forces are advancing on several fronts. The battlefield odds aren't even close. That's why the commanders of those armies -- in Washington, Moscow and Tehran, as well as Damascus and Ankara -- are looking beyond the coming showdown with the jihadists. When they're killed or driven out, who'll take over? It's an especially sharp dilemma for President Donald Trump. Because for the second time this century, the U.S. risks defeating one Middle Eastern enemy only to see another one, Iran, emerge as the big winner. The U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 toppled Iran's bitter rival Saddam Hussein and replaced him with a sympathetic Shiite-led government. In Syria today, Iranian ally Bashar al-Assad has survived six years of civil war during which U.S. leaders repeatedly insisted that he had to go. His army, fighting alongside militias loyal to Tehran, is driving into Islamic State-held territory, setting up a race with U.S.-backed forces to liberate it. Even the areas where the Americans arrive first may eventually revert to Assad's control.


Hezbollah and Hamas Movement officials were reluctant Tuesday to confirm a media report that meetings were taking place in Lebanon between members of the Palestinian group and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to restore financial ties with Iran. Hamas officials refused to confirm or deny the report, insisting the movement had always been engaged in discussions with its allies. "Relations between Hamas and all Arab and Islamic powers didn't stop at any period in time," a source from Hamas told The Daily Star. "We have wide Islamic and Arab relations and we preserve these relations in order to support Palestine, the resistance and the continuation of coordination between the Hamas Movement and all these parties." However, the source did not outright deny that the talks, reported by Saudi newspaper Asharq al-Awsat Tuesday, were taking place. A Hezbollah official contacted about the meeting declined to comment, but also did not outright deny the claims.


Iran-backed militias in Iraq have advanced against the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) on the nation's border with Syria, where the units hope to link up with a parallel anti-ISIS offensive run by the Syrian army and its allies. Armed groups under the umbrella of the majority-Shiite Muslim Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), also called Al-Hashd Al-Shaabi, have strategically pushed westward, battling the remains of ISIS' self-proclaimed Sunni caliphate along the Syrian border. The militias are part of an alliance that includes the Iraqi military, Kurdish forces and a U.S.-led coalition currently battling ISIS in its final Iraqi stronghold of Mosul. As partner forces engage the remnants of ISIS' control in Mosul, the PMF have successfully cut ISIS off outside the city and on Monday retook a number of villages on the Syrian border, Reuters reported.


For Iranian viewers sitting down for this year's primetime historical drama during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, there was a shock: you could see women's hair. The director's trick: popping across the border to neighbouring Armenia to film women without headscarves in front of a "green screen" and then super-imposing them into the background of Iranian scenes. "This is a technical achievement for our cinema and television that can be of service in future," director Jalil Saman said in Wednesday's Haft-e Sobh newspaper. The month of Ramadan, which started on Saturday, is always a showcase for high-profile TV serials and this year it is Saman's "Nafas" (or "Breath"), about a nurse being dragged into the revolutionary tumult of the late 1970s, that has garnered the most attention. Iranian TV can show foreign films with unscarved women -- although too much leg or cleavage gets blurred out or hidden behind a digitally inserted object such as a lamp.


Iran's election watchdog certified President Hassan Rouhani's reelection as fair on Tuesday, dismissing claims by the defeated hardline candidate who had asked for investigation into alleged widespread fraud. "The Guardian Council confirmed today in a letter the results of the 12th presidential election in Iran," Salman Samani, the spokesman of the interior ministry, was quoted as saying by the state media Rouhani easily secured reelection for a second term in the May 19 vote, winning more than 57 percent of the vote. His main challenger, hardline judge Ebrahim Raisi, received 38 percent.


In early April 2017, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, stated that Iran has initiated "mass production" of several advanced centrifuges, in particular the IR-2, IR-4, and IR-6.3. The mass production of any of these centrifuges (or their components) would greatly expand Iran's ability to sneak-out or breakout to nuclear weapons or surge the size of its centrifuge program if the deal fails or after key nuclear limitations end. Therefore, the
statement deserves careful scrutiny to determine its veracity, and if true, a determination of where all these components are being made and in what number. Furthermore, the international community needs to understand whether the IAEA is able to verify or disprove Salehi's statement under current arrangements. This activity would contradict Iran's commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and possibly rise to the level of a material breach of the JCPOA.

During his trip to the Middle East last week, President Donald Trump had one consistent theme and he never wavered from it: The region needs to unite to stop Iran. Mutual antipathy for Tehran has driven Arab regimes such as Saudi Arabia to make common cause with Israel. It was also the motivation for the massive $110 billion arms deal Trump struck with the Saudis, who believe that President Obama's nuclear agreement with Iran has endangered their security. But while Trump talks tough about the Iranians, the normally bellicose Islamist regime has been restrained, at least by its standards, in response. Why? The Iranians may be unhappy with Trump's effort to orchestrate the creation of a Middle East NATO that would oppose their dream of regional hegemony, but they are actually quite pleased with other elements of his administration's Iran policy. For all of Trump's bluster, his decision not only to leave the nuclear agreement in place but to erect no obstacles to a major U.S. commercial deal with Iran may have convinced the ayatollahs that the president isn't quite as hostile as he wants to seem.

Pro-Iranian regime analysts and commentators pretend and promote that the regime is a regional power and should not be ignored. Such a claim is usually made under the guise of deceitful patriotism at a time when crisis and instability is rampant in the Middle East and this regime is the main reason behind it. The Iranian regime claims that it is a regional power and commentators some times bargain intentionally in its favor, assuming that such claims may be true. The reality on the ground is that Iranian regime, or its proxies, are present in Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and are involved in killings, ethnic cleansing, destruction and instability in these countries. The fight to liberate Mosul from ISIS is a case in point. Heads of tribes of Arab Nineveh Province in Iraq demanded from the international community to kick out militants belonging to Hashad al-Shaabi, or Popular Mobilization Forces, from Mosul and its surroundings in order to end the dominance of the region by the Iranian regime and its proxies.
