“Unlike the powers-that-be charged with running New York City, you and I can be realistic. Intentionally placing two live bombs set to explode and intended to commit mass murder in a populated center of the most recognized city in the United States is terror. It does not matter if the perpetrator is part of a group or a lone wolf; it doesn’t matter if you are fighting for Islam or animal rights or if you are an anarchist. The definition is plain and simple. Using violence or the threat of violence to achieve a political end is terror.

The only time it is not called terror is when you want to keep the masses calm. Then you rely on antiquated definitions by the FBI and Justice Department. But those days are long gone.

When the bomb injuring dozens of people exploded in Chelsea on Saturday night and a second unexploded bomb was discovered a few blocks away, New York City’s Mayor De Blasio said it was “intentional,” but he added, “there is no evidence at this point that there is a terror connection.” He also said that “there was no credible specific threat to New York.”

Our democratically elected leaders insist on hanging on to the misconception that it is not terror if the perpetrators are not part of an organized, recognized, terror group.  And in New York City right now, they are sticking to that story.

Lone wolves or small groups by their nature do not communicate with a central command, and they are difficult to detect and monitor. ISIS and Al Qaeda know this all too well. That’s why they have repeatedly said that they no longer want recruits to travel to Syria and Iraq to fight. ISIS and Al Qaeda say that followers will be more effective if they attack in their homeland. And their message is being heard. It has been the model in Europe and now in the United States.

Our leaders want to package terrorists into nice neat boxes. So they conclude that if a terrorist is not a member of a terror group the violent act they perpetrate is not considered terror. The obvious example is the terror at Fort Hood, officially classified as workplace violence.

Even more poignant is the Orlando terrorist. The perpetrator was actually on the phone with local media bragging that he was part of ISIS and explaining that his actions were motivated by a need to defend Islam. He even repeatedly chanted the Islamic terrorist battle cry: “Allahu Akbar.”  Yet, the U.S. Attorney General still responded by saying, “We may never really know the motivation behind the attack.”

You Can’t Win The War Until You Identify The Enemy

“Israel has been dealing with terrorist attacks since the country was founded. They identify the bombings, shootings, etc. as terrorist attacks, pride themselves on being able to clean up anything in two hours or less, and continue on their way. Somehow America has not mastered these basic skills that unfortunately are necessary in the world we currently live in.

Over the weekend there was a stabbing in a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota, on Saturday, a bombing in Seaside, New Jersey, on Saturday morning during a 5K Marine charity race, and two bombs in New York City on Saturday night–one exploded and one did not. The device in New Jersey was described as three pipe bombs; the devices in New York City have been described as pressure cookers with timers.

Houston, we have a problem. Part of the problem is that terrorism has come to America, and part of the problem is that our political leaders are reluctant to admit that terrorism has come to America…..

If you are a regular reader of this website, you are familiar with the information in the following paragraph. If you are not a regular reader, this is something you need to be aware of:

In October 2011, elements of the American Muslim Brotherhood wrote the White House demanding an embargo or discontinuation of information and materials relating to Islamic-based terrorism. The letter was addressed to John Brennan, who at the time was Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism.  Days later John Brennan agreed to create a task force to address the problem by removing personnel and products that the Muslim Brotherhood deemed “biased, false, and highly offensive.”

This move in effect allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to control the information given to the people charged with stopping the terrorism initiated by groups affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. At this point, the 9/11 reports and other actual historic documents were altered to make them compliant with the new paradigm. (I thought only the Russians rewrote history.)

If we are not careful, political correctness is going to kill us all. The weekend attacks were terrorism–whether by a lone nutcase who thought he represented Allah or a member of a group. It really doesn’t matter–people were injured as a result of the actions of these people.

CAIR (which is one of the major Muslim Brotherhood front groups in America–see the list of unindicted co-conspirators from the Holy Land Foundation Trial) works very hard to keep the Muslim community from reporting suspicious behavior and to keep our government unaware of what is being taught in some mosques.

It is time to pay attention to the people among us who have refused to assimilate and who are fighting to undermine our way of life. That group of people does not include all Muslims, but it does mainly consist of Muslims, and until peaceful Muslims rein in the radicals among them, we need to watch the entire community. Refusing to call a terrorist attack a terrorist attack does not help anyone; and in fact, it simply emboldens those planning more attacks.”

Obama’s Scrub of Muslim terms under question; common links in attacks

– Washington Times  |  2013

1984a

The White House issued an edict to scrub all law enforcement, intelligence and military instruction on Islam and Islamic Terror

 

“Before the Boston Marathon bombings, the Obama administration argued for years that there is a big difference between terrorists and the tenets of Islam.

A senior White House aide in 2009 publicly urged Washington to cease using the term “jihadist” — asserting that terrorists are simply extremists. Two years later, the White House ordered a cleansing of training materials that Islamic groups deemed offensive.

Now, some analysts are asking whether the 2009 edict and others that followed have dampened law enforcement’s appetite to thoroughly investigate terrorism suspects for fear of offending higher-ups or the American Muslim lobby.

It is not just the case of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a radicalized jihadist whom the FBI questioned in 2011 and cleared of terrorism links. At least five Muslims have attempted mass destruction in the U.S. since 2009, undetected beforehand by law enforcement and the intelligence community:

Steven Emerson runs the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which monitors a network of Islamic groups with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated goal is to impose Shariah, or Islamic law, on the world.

“Numerous experts on Islamic terrorism like myself and I had given 143 lectures at the FBI, CIA were banned from speaking to any U.S. government counterterrorism conferences,” Mr. Emerson told The Washington Times. “Instead, these agencies were ordered to invite Muslim Brotherhood front groups.”

The biggest White House push to tone down training on jihadists emerged in 2011, the same year the Russian government warned the U.S. about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, whose parents hailed from Chechnya, a hotbed of radical Islamists. Tamerlan and younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are accused of placing the two bombs that killed three and wounded more than 260 at the Boston Marathon.

Islamic backlash

In October 2011, 57 Islamic groups wrote a letter to John O. Brennan, now CIA director, but then President Obama’s chief counterterrorism adviser.

Citing news reports, the groups complained of “biased, false and highly offensive training materials about Muslims and Islam” inside the federal government’s instructional halls.

“While recent news reports have highlighted the FBI’s use of biased experts and training materials, we have learned that this problem extends far beyond the FBI and has infected other government agencies, including the U.S. Attorney’s Anti-Terrorism Advisory Councils, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Army,” the letter read.

Muslims objected to several training guides, such as a 2009 report produced at the Army Command and General Staff at the Fort Leavenworth School of Advanced Military Studies.

“Moderate Muslims are not exercising moderation; they are simply applying other means to accomplish the same goal of establishing global Islamic dominance,” it quoted the report as saying.

At least two of the 57 groups were listed by the Justice Department as unindicted co-conspirators and as being connected to the Muslim Brotherhood in the prosecution of a Texas charity for funding Hamas, a U.S.-designated terrorist organization. The groups are the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America.

The organizations’ letter demanded that biased trainers be disciplined, that all instructors undergo retraining and that materials deemed offensive by Muslim activists be purged.

The White House issued an edict to scrub all law enforcement, intelligence and military teachings on Islam. The FBI ended up discarding pages of information that warned about the threat from the Brotherhood.”

History of the Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of the U.S. Government

– GatestoneInstitute.org

“Given the long history of Muslim Brotherhood activity in this country, its declared objective to “destroy the Western civilization from within,” and the extensive evidence of successful influence operations at the highest levels of the U.S. government, it is urgent that we recognize this clear and present danger that threatens not only our Republic but the values of Western civilization.

This report describes how the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated and suborned the U.S. government to actively assist, whether knowingly or not, the mission of its grand jihad. Its hard-won position at the forefront of the 21st century Islamic Awakening is possible only because of decades of patient infiltration and political indoctrination (Da’wa) in the West, and especially the United States of America, even as the grassroots work of building an organizational structure advanced steadily in the land of its origin as well. It is important to recognize the sophistication of the Brotherhood’s international strategy and how the takedown of U.S. national security defenses from within was critical to the current Middle East-North Africa (MENA) campaign to re-establish the Caliphate and enforce Islamic Law (shariah).”

9/11 Islamic Terror Link to LA Culver City Mosque | Aug 2016

9/11 Islamic Terror Link to LA Culver City Mosque | Aug 2016

De-Classified 28 Pages Suggest 9/11 Islamic Terror Link to LA Culver City Mosque

– Breitbart

Screen-Shot-2016-07-17-at-6.13.03-AM-640x480

“The newly-declassified 28 pages of a congressional inquiry into the 9/11 terrorist attacks has alleged possible connections to a Los Angeles, California mosque.

The report alleges that two of the 9/11 hijackers were in contact with a Saudi diplomat who was an “imam” at the Muslim place of worship.

The findings, which are littered with redactions, suggest two of the hijackers, Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, may have been in contact with Shaykh Fahad al-Thumairy, an accredited diplomat at the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles, between 1996 and 2003. Al-Thumairy was described by the report as “one of the ‘imams’ at the King Fahad mosque located in Culver City, California.”

The King Fahad mosque, which is also referred to as the “Ibn Tamiyah Mosque,” was identified by the FBI as a site of “extremist-related activity both before and after September 11.” The report goes on to detail: “In an interview, an FBI agent said he believed that Saudi Government money was being laundered through the mosque,” and sent “to non-profit organizations overseas affiliated with Usama bin Laden.” It also notes that “the findings suggest Saudi Government officials in the United States may have ties to Usama bin Laden’s terrorist network.”

The mosque was built in 1998 from funding largely provided by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Abdulaziz, a member of the House of Saud.

The commission report “also found other indications that individuals connected to the Saudi Government have ties to terrorist networks … Several subjects of FBI investigations prior to September 11 had close connections to the mosque and are believed to have laundered money through this mosque.”

Today, the mosque’s website condemns terrorism in a video that plays automatically: “These difficulties are perpetrated by people who do evil in the name of good … These actions have no place in Islam.”

Raul Patel, a man who described himself as the director of King Fahad Mosque for the last four years, told Breitbart News via phone on Sunday that “Mr. Thumairy was paid for by Saudi confidants.” When asked about the terrorism-related money trail that led to the mosque, Patel said, “We are not associated with al Qaeda or any group.”

Al-Midhar and al-Hazmi, who arrived in California in January of 2000, were among the five hijackers who flew the hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon in September 11, killing all 64 people who were on board in addition 125 people who were on the ground.

The report goes on to say that another Saudi national who was also suspected of being a Saudi intelligence officer, Omar al-Bayoumi, had also helped two of the California hijackers, although the initial 9/11 Commission report had found him to be “an unlikely candidate for clandestine involvement” with radical Islamists. The report further details that “the FBI conducted a counterterrorism investigation on al-Bayoumi in 1998 and 1999, but closed the investigation at that point.”

The California link also extends to San Diego, where a man named Osama Bassnan — “an extremist and supporter of Usama bin Laden” — is believed to “have been in contact with al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi during their time in San Diego”. Furthermore, “The FBI also received reports from individuals in the Muslim community alleging that Bassnan might be a Saudi intelligence officer.”

Osama Bassnan reportedly “made a comment to an FBI source after the September 11 attacks suggesting that he did more for the hijackers than Omar al-Bayoumi did.” Al-Bayoumi was allegedly a Saudi intelligence officer and “FBI files suggest he provided substantial assistance to hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Ahazmi after they arrived in San Diego in February 2000.” The report adds: “According to FBI documents, Basnnan also knew Bin Laden’s family in Saudi Arabia and speaks on his mobile telephone with members of the family who are living in the United States.”

Saudi government funded extremism in U.S. mosques and charities: report

– Washington Times

8dfbbdd4c9586e235f0f6a7067003c3f_c0-746-1387-1554_s885x516

“Saudi Arabia was funding Muslim radicalism in mosques and charities at the time the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers were gathering in the United States and making contacts with Saudi nationals, according to a declassified intelligence document.

To jihad watchers, the paper confirms their charges that the Saudi government and its wealthy citizens fund extremist teachings in America. To this day, the kingdom is pressing its harsh Wahhabi Sunni Islam on American Muslims as it seeks to spread Islam around the world, they say.

In the document, one Saudi who was receiving money from Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Riyadh’s ambassador to the U.S. at the time, made a startling statement to an FBI informant. The man, who had ties to some of the hijackers, told agents that it would do the U.S. no good to limit entry visas because a sufficient number of Muslims were already in the country to destroy it and create an Islamic state.

The disclosure was tucked in the “28 pages” — a long-secret chapter in a 2002 report by the House and Senate intelligence committees after an investigation in the immediate aftermath of the al Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and on the Pentagon. Of the 19 who hijacked four airliners, 15 were Saudis.

The report section, referred to as “Part 4,” deals mainly with one topic: suspected Saudi government support for the Sept. 11 plot. The George W. Bush administration insisted that the section remain classified. Under pressure, the Obama administration released the pages last week.”
