UAE Designates American Muslim Groups – CAIR & MAS – As Terrorist Organizations

 

 

 

” Why hasn’t the U.S. done the same? Will Fox News and other media outlets give CAIR a platform now that they are designated terrorists alongside al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hizbollah, ISIS and CAIR’s parent organization the Muslim Brotherhood? Probably. via UAE Designates Two American Muslim Groups As Terrorist Orgs | The Daily Caller.

  The United Arab Emirates has officially designated 83 groups as terrorist organizations, including two based in the U.S., the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society.

UAE’s cabinet made the announcement following a meeting on Saturday.

  Other groups designated as terrorists include al-Qaida, al Nusra, Boko Haram and the Muslim Brotherhood.

CAIR’s designation is interesting given its high profile here in the U.S.

  The group was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case in 2007. Leaders of the Holy Land Foundation were found guilty of aiding Hamas, which the U.S. has designated as a terrorist organization.”

The Bodies Keep Piling Up: From Kenya To Iraq Shocking New Images Show How A Wave Of Islamist Carnage Has Signaled A New Era Of Barbaric Terror Across The World

 

 

” Somali militants have shot dead at least 48 people after attacking two hotels and a police station in a small Kenyan coastal town hall as locals were watching the World Cup.

  The attack in Mpeketoni, which is about 30-miles southwest of the tourist centre of Lamu, came at the end of a weekend of bloodshed that has exposed the world to the shocking depravity of terrorists who appear emboldened by each other’s acts.

  The string of bloodthirsty atrocities, spanning two continents from Kenya to Iraq, has raised the spectre of a new era of barbaric terror that is sweeping the globe.”

 

 

 

   How ironic that we come across this Daily Mail story on the rise of Islamist terror immediately after publishing one of our own .

Iraq Crisis: Baghdad Prepares For The Worst As Islamist Militants Vow To Capture The Capital

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Iraq is breaking up. The Kurds have taken the northern oil city of Kirkuk that they have long claimed as their capital. Sunni fundamentalist fighters vow to capture Baghdad and the Shia holy cities further south.

  Government rule over the Sunni Arab heartlands of north and central Iraq is evaporating as its 900,000-strong army disintegrates. Government aircraft have fired missiles at insurgent targets in Mosul, captured by Isis on Monday, but the Iraqi army has otherwise shown no sign of launching a counter-attack.

  The nine-year Shia dominance over Iraq, established after the US, Britain and other allies overthrew Saddam Hussein, may be coming to an end. The Shia may continue to hold the capital and the Shia-majority provinces further south, but they will have great difficulty in re-establishing their authority over Sunni provinces from which their army has fled.

  It is unlikely that the Kurds will give up Kirkuk. “The whole of Kirkuk has fallen into the hands of peshmerga [Kurdish soldiers],” said the peshmerga spokesman Jabbar Yawar. “No Iraqi army remains in Kirkuk.”

  Foreign intervention is more likely to come from Iran than the US. The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran would act to combat “the violence and terrorism” of Isis”. Iran emerged as the most influential foreign power in Baghdad after 2003. As a fellow Shia-majority state, Iraq matters even more to Iran than Syria.”

Obama’s ‘Don’t Do Stupid Shit’ Foreign Policy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” According to multiple reliable sources, on Air Force One during President Barack Obama’s recent Asia trip, he spent some time talking with his traveling press corps about his approach to foreign policy. He was defensive and, by one account, “fuming.” He felt that the criticism of his approach was unfair. He had clear ideas about how to manage America’s global interests. In his own words, they centered on a single concept: “Don’t do stupid shit.”

  In fact, after making this point, he reportedly stood up, headed forward toward his own cabin on the plane, and then stopped. He turned back to the gathered reporters, and, much like an elementary school teacher hammering rote learning into students, he said, “So what is my foreign policy?” The reporters, in unison, then said, “Don’t do stupid shit.”

  How far we have come from the audacity of hope; yes, we can; the soaring expectations framed by the brilliant oratory of the president’s Cairo speech on relations with the Muslim world; his Prague speech on eliminating nuclear weapons worldwide; and his Oslo speech when accepting the Nobel Peace Prize. In fact, “don’t do stupid shit” is a comedown even from his expectation-lowering remarks in the Philippines on that same Asia trip in which he limned his vision for a foreign policy that consisted mostly of singles” and “doubles.

 

 

 

   Having reported that “Don’t do stupid shit” was Obama’s personal mantra in regards to his foreign policy approach , author David Rothkopf then proceeds to explore whether Obama actually lives by his self-assigned credo …

 

 

 

” It is, of course, the prerogative of the president of the United States to make and frame his foreign policy as he sees fit. It is among the executive’s most clearly defined and potent responsibilities as described in the U.S. Constitution. So rather than getting into a lengthy discussion about how disappointing it is for this president — who once was seen as a potentially transformational figure — to have embraced defensive minimalism, or dwelling on the lack of imagination that has led to America’s incredible shrinking foreign policy, let’s take Obama’s foreign policy on its own terms. 

  Let’s ask the question: Is this administration succeeding in its goal of not doing stupid shit?

 

 

 

     Mr Rothkopf first ponders the age-old democrat habit of parsing the most basic of english language words , a la Bill Clinton … what is the meaning of “is” , “stupid” and finally “shit” .

 

 

 

” This all depends, as another president might have said, on what your definition is of “stupid” and of “shit.” But mostly it depends on your definition of the word “doing.” Because if doing stupid shit actually requires taking an action that crosses the administration’s stupidity threshold, then it would rule out all the times when not doing something was stupid. While this might be a clever way to dodge the bullet for an administration that is often criticized for its reluctance to act, this falls into the same kind of minor league Talmudic semantic contortionism that led the aforementioned prior president to parse the meaning of the word “is.” “

 

 

 

   After vowing to stick with the more mundane and socially accepted meanings of those three simple words the author gets down to cases and finds , not surprisingly , Obama wanting …

 

 

 

” In terms of sins of commission, there is nonetheless a list of some doozies that seem to violate Obama’s own new foreign-policy guidelines. “

 

 

 

   Read the whole litany of foreign policy “stupid shit” foisted on the world by the Obama administration at Foreign Policy and see what George Will has called the foreign policy of Monty Python .

” A barrage of drone strikes in Yemen over the weekend killed at least 55 militants, plus civilians. The strikes targeted a suspected al-Qaeda training camp that had popped up in southern Yemen in recent months. But what effect are these strikes having? And what legal authority does the U.S. have to wage war in Yemen — a country where war has never officially been declared? RT’s Sam Sacks looks into these issues.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Human Heads In al-Qaeda’s Cooking Pot

 

 

fsa-terrorist-cook-severed-heads-syria-soldier-pot-open-fire-500x281

 

 

 

” Not many could believe the terrifying pictures of two human heads placed in a cooking pot in Syria– just one of the countless atrocities of al-Qaeda. The two victims are Saudis, killed in the fight betweent the competing al-Qaeda branches in Syria: the Islamic State of Iraq and the Syria (ISIS) and al-Nusra Front.

  The horrible pictures reveal yet another hideous act practiced by these two groups which only succeeded at one thing: obstructing the Syrian opposition from fighting the Bashar al-Assad regime. They spend their entire time fighting one another. Meanwhile, Assad sleeps comfortably in his bed in the Qasyoun Mountain, pleased at how he transformed those idiots into brigades working for him for free! “

 

 

 

 

     The article above , while actually a plea for Obama and the west to destroy Assad , goes a long way towards creating a true vision of the barbarity exhibited by both sides in the ongoing Syrian “civil war” . The writer takes the Saudi view that Assad must go while paying lip service to the evils of the ISIS and various al-Qaeda offshoots in the hopes of getting the West to do the Saudi regime’s dirty work , conveniently omitting the fact that Saudi petro-dollars fund the lion’s share of terrorism world wide .

 Syria , like Libya before it , is a no-win situation for the West and the sooner we realize that we cannot right all the wrongs of the world and demand that the Arabs , who are not lacking in funds , start cleaning their own houses the better off all concerned will be . 

   Let it be Arab blood and treasure spent to free the Arabs from Arab oppression . Not one more American life … Read the piece anyway to see the kind of animals the president of the US would have us believe are the “good guys” .

 

 

 

 

Fewer Americans Think Obama Respected On World Stage

 

Trend: Americans' Perceptions of President Obama's World Standing

 

” For the first time, more Americans think President Barack Obama is not respected by other world leaders than believe he is. Americans’ opinions have shifted dramatically in the past year, after being relatively stable from 2010 to 2013.

  The results are based on Gallup’s annual World Affairs poll, conducted Feb. 6-9. Although opinions about a president’s perceived world standing often track with his job approval rating, a majority of Americans still thought world leaders respected Obama in 2010 and 2011, when his job approval was similar to what it is now. Thus, the recent decline may be more tied to specific international matters from the past year, such as the revelation the U.S. was listening in on foreign leaders’ phone calls, the situation in Syria, increased tensions with Russia, and an uneasy relationship between Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.”

 

 

   All we can say is “What took so long?” The MSM has lost it’s mojo and can no longer keep the present administration’s incompetence under wraps . It’s about effing time . People are finally starting to pay attention . Too bad he gets another three years to continue the destruction of America .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UN: More Than 140,000 Iraqis Flee Anbar Violence

” A United Nations official says more than 140,000 Iraqis have fled parts of Anbar province over clashes between security forces and al-Qaida militants.”

 

” He added that more than 65,000 people fled the conflict in the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah just in the past week alone.”

Smart diplomacy … hmmm

These Words From Obama Are Frightening — and Revealing

 

 

 

 

 

” It’s less than comforting to hear the President make light of terrorist threats.

  In a recent interview with The New Yorker, President Obama referred to today’s al-Qaeda fighters as the “jayvee” team.

“ The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he said.

  This shows that the Administration’s wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isn’t over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true.

  Before Benghazi, they claimed al-Qaeda was defeated and on the run. Four dead Americans later, this was proven false.”

 

 

 

 

    Obama must be thinking that in terms of being a danger to America , Al-Qaeda is the second-string … that varsity , or first string team is his own administration . He has certainly caused more harm to America in five years than Al-Qaeda has in the past 25 . He and his administration have learned nothing from Benghazi .

From The Latest Commentary Magazine

 

 

 

” The situation in Iraq’s restive Western province of al-Anbar continues to deteriorate as al-Qaeda-affiliated radicals have now seized Fallujah and threaten to take more cities. Some analysts have been tempted to blame everyone from Prime Minister Maliki in Baghdad to President Obama in the White House—and certainly there is blame to go around—but ultimately that political blame should not cover the fact that sometimes the solution to terrorism rooted in ideology is not counterinsurgency strategy or winning hearts and minds, but rather killing those who embrace terror.”

Al-Qaeda-Linked Force Captures Fallujah Amid Rise In Violence In Iraq

 

 

All for nothing …

” A rejuvenated al-Qaeda-affiliated force asserted control over the western Iraqi city of Fallujah on Friday, raising its flag over government buildings and declaring an Islamic state in one of the most crucial areas that U.S. troops fought to pacify before withdrawing from Iraq two years ago.

  The capture of Fallujah came amid an explosion of violence across the western desert province of Anbar in which local tribes, Iraqi security forces and al-Qaeda-affiliated militants have been fighting one another for days in a confusingly chaotic three-way war.”

Congress Backs Terrorists In Syria … Then Says We Need NSA Spying Because There are Terrorists In Syria

 

 

 

” The civil war in Syria started in March 2011. And see this.

  However, the U.S. has been funding the Syrian opposition since 2006 … and arming the opposition since 2007  (In reality, the U.S. and Britain considered attacking Syrians and then blaming it on the Syrian government as an excuse for regime change … 50 years ago (the U.S. just admitted that they did this to Iran) . And the U.S. has been planning regime change in Syria for 20 years straight. And see this.)

  The New York Times, (and here and here) , Wall Street JournalUSA TodayCNNMcClatchy (and here), AP,TimeReutersBBC, the Independent, the TelegraphAgence France-PresseAsia Times, and the Star (andhere) confirm that  supporting the rebels means supporting Al Qaeda and two other terrorist groups.

  Indeed, the the New York Times has reported that virtually all of the rebel fighters are Al Qaeda terrorists.

  The Syrian rebels are now calling for terrorist attacks on America.  And we’ve long known that most of the weapons we’re shipping to Syria are ending up in the hands of Al Qaeda. And they apparently have chemical weapons.

  And yet the U.S. is stepping up its support for the Islamic extremists.

  The chair of the House Intelligence Committee – Mike Rogers – voted for arming the Syrian rebels. And the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee – Diane Feinstein – has apparently quietly let arms flow to the rebels.

  So are they admitting their mistake?

  Heck, no!  They’re using the specter of Syrian terrorists to justify mass surveillance by the NSA on innocent Americans …

  And now he’s trying to use rebel Al Qaeda as an excuse for mass surveillance by the NSA.”

FBI Video Shows Al Qaeda In Kentucky

 

Al Aqaeda Kentucky

 

” An al Qaeda-linked terrorist, who was resettled in the U.S. as an Iraq War refugee after allegedly killing American soldiers, was caught on camera in Kentucky handling heavy weapons that the FBI said he believed would be sent to insurgents back in Iraq.

The 2010 video, obtained exclusively by ABC News, was part of a broader ABC News investigation into the flawed refugee vetting program, which officials said may have let “dozens” of terrorists into the country.

In the video, Waad Ramadan Alwan is seen expertly field stripping what the FBI identified as a Russian PKM machine gun. Other still images provided by the FBI from hours-worth of surveillance footage show Alwan and an accomplice, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, handling a Stinger missile launcher and a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launcher.”

 

     See this companion story for more details on how the US government has allowed dozens or perhaps even hundreds of Al Qaeda operatives into the country under the guise of being “refugees” from political persecution …. sickening . They do a better job of keeping Americans off of planes than they do of keeping terrorists out of the country .

US Commandos Were Poised For Raid To Capture Benghazi Suspect

 

 

 

 

” When U.S. commandos grabbed a former al Qaeda operative in Tripoli this month, American forces were just hours away from potentially launching a more dangerous covert raid to capture a militia figure facing charges in the deadly Benghazi terror attack, U.S. officials tell CNN.

U.S. special operations forces were ready, if ordered, to enter Benghazi and capture Ahmed Abu Khattalah, a leading figure in the Ansar Al-Sharia militia. But the mission never materialized.

But the mission never materialized, partly because there was so much publicity inside Libya and in the western press about the al-Libi capture.

But the inability to get Khattalah is leading to sensitive questions inside the administration about the tradeoff between getting al-Libi and going after the perpetrators of the politically charged Benghazi attack.”

 

    We all know the administration has absolutely no interest in bringing the Benghazi terrorists to justice . Testimony from the terrorists responsible would be nothing but an embarrassment to an administration with so much to hide .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

France ‘Paid Al-Qaida €25m To Release Hostages In Niger’

 

 

 

” France paid up to €25m ($34m, £21.5m) in ransom to al-Qaida to free four Frenchmen who had been held hostage for years in the African Sahel, according to sources close to the operation.

The sources dispute claims by French Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian that no money was paid to secure the release of Pierre Legrand, 28, Daniel Larribe, 62, Thierry Dol, 32, and Marc Féret, 46.

Le Drian said the four, who had been kidnapped in 2010 in Niger, were released thanks to the brokerage of the country’s President Mahamadou Issoufou.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama-Backed Jihadists Posting The Names Of All Christians ‘Supposed To Be Killed’ Online

The facts are validating everything that I (and a few brave colleagues) have been warning of for well over a year (the genocide of Christians and Alawites). So despite al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood’s wholesale slaughter of Christians and Alawites, the mass beheadings in front of children, the cannibalism, etc., Obama continues to support, train and arm the jihadis with lethal weapons.

Ghastly.

Homeland Security Chairman On Benghazi Report

 

Administration al-Qaeda Apologists

 

 

” The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said this morning that the new evidence unveiled showing al-Qaeda plotted the Benghazi diplomatic mission attack proves the “cries for help” from Ambassador Chris Stevens “were not responded to.”

CBS featured on 60 Minutes last night the first Western eyewitness to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack: a former British soldier involved in diplomatic security.

“About 30 minutes into the attack, a Quick Reaction Force from the CIA annex ignored orders to wait and raced to the compound, at times running and shooting their way through the streets just to get there,” the guard said. “Inside the compound, they repelled a force of as many as 60 armed terrorists and managed to save five American lives and recover the body of Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. They were forced to fight their way out before they could find the ambassador.”

He noted al-Qaeda had promised to attack the Red Cross, the British and Americans in Benghazi, and had already carried out the first two before the Sept. 11 attack.

“They knew what they were doing,” the guard said. “That was a well-executed attack.” “

 

One has to wonder , from our Dear Leader’s point of view , if this a bug or a feature.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Can Fund al-Qaeda But We Can’t Fund The Families Of Our War Dead?

 

” And, you’ll be pleased to know, supporting the Syrian “rebels” is a high enough priority that it’s not part of the 17 percent of the federal government affected by the “shutdown.” America’s enemies are still receiving taxpayer-funded weapons, so that they can fight America’s other enemies, the Assad regime, to what Washington hopes will be a resounding victory. Er . . . check that — to what the administration hopes will be . . . a tie. The administration also let slip this week that it is arming our preferred jihadists so they can grind to a stalemate with Russia’s preferred jihadists — after all, we wouldn’t want to upset Iran’s ruling jihadists after they’ve just finally deigned to take, yes, a phone call from our pleading president after blowing him off in New York.”

 

 

 

” So support for the Syrian jihad remains unaffected by the shutdown, just like the Capitol Hill gym and Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” website. Obama did manage, however, to cut off death benefits for the families of American troops killed fighting for our country. Or at least our conniving Alinsky-in-chief thought he’d succeeded in cutting off the military death benefits — along with forcible closures of war-hero cemeteries, national monuments, private homes, and the ocean.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Al Qaeda Quickly Constructing Main Mideast Base in Syria

 

 

 

” Al Qaeda is quickly constructing its main regional Middle East base in Syria, from where it plans to export terrorism and Islamic radicalism to neighboring states, then to the West, a new report released by an Israeli security research institute warned.

 

” Al Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s official arm in Syria, is quickly entrenching itself in the north and east of Syria, where the Assad regime’s rule has collapsed. Jihad will spread outwards to the region, then threaten global security — possibly with biological and chemical weapons.”

 

” The jihadis later aspire, according to the report, to turn “Greater Syria” — an old geographic term encompassing Syria, Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories — into an Islamic caliphate.

The exhaustive study took a year to compile, according to researchers at the Tel Aviv-based Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, which released it.

The Center itself is a part of the Israeli Intelligence and Heritage Commemoration Center, founded in the 1980s by leading members of the Israeli intelligence community.

The report identified the Al Nusra Front as Al Qaeda’s official arm in Syria; they added that the organization is quickly entrenching itself in the north and east of Syria, where the Assad regime’s rule has collapsed. “

 

 

     These are our president’s  “allies” in Syria , the ones that US taxpayer dollars are being used to supply weapons to . This is real “change you can believe in” . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You Go Elliot … Give ‘Em Hell

 

” A 4-year-old British boy spared by the Islamic terrorists who massacred scores of shoppers at a Kenyan shopping mall confronted one of the attackers during the slaughter, calling him a “bad man.”

 
Little Elliot Prior of Windsor, Berkshire was with his mother, Amber, and 6-year-old sister Amelie shopping at Nairobi’s upscale Westgate Mall when militants from al-Shabaab, a Somali group affiliated with al-Qaeda, began attacking and killing shoppers and staff with small arms and grenades. About an hour into the attack, some of the militants barricaded themselves inside the Nakumatt supermarket, where Amber, 35, was queued up to buy milk. The film producer hid under a meat counter with her two children, but terrorists discovered them and shot her in the leg.
Kenyan Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed has stated that a British woman and “two or three” Americans were among the terrorists who attacked the Westgate Mall. Mohamed told PBS NewsHour that the Americans originally came from Minnesota and Missouri.

 

“The Americans, from the information we have, are young men, about between maybe 18 and 19, of Somali or Arab origin,” Mohamed told PBS.

 

Reports of a British woman leading the attackers have fueled speculation in the UK press that Samantha Lewthwaite, also known as the ‘White Widow,’ wife of 7/7 London suicide bomber Jermaine Lindsey, was involved in the Nairobi attack.”

 

Obama Vows Support For Kenya As White House Defends Anti-Terror Record

 

 

” President Obama vowed Monday to give Kenya “whatever law enforcement support that is necessary” amid mounting criticism that al Qaeda’s Somalia affiliate is on the rise.

The president said the United States stands with Kenya against the “terrible outrage” that saw al Shabaab’s Islamist militants kill at least 69 people in a high-end shopping mall in Nairobi. He later joined in a moment of silence at the United Nations.

The attack has raised new concerns about al Shabaab’s tenacity despite administration claims that Somalia is now a success story.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) told ABC on Sunday that the attack was proof that al Qaeda and its affiliates “are still extremely powerful and still able to really strike terror into the hearts of people.” The conservative American Enterprise Institute meanwhile bluntly asserts that the Westgate mall massacre is a “tragic reminder that U.S. strategy against al Qaeda, claims of success notwithstanding, is not working.”

” Latest reports from inside the besieged Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi suggest that the Somali al-Shabaab militants who laid siege to the mall on Saturday continue to occupy the building, and have taken an unknown number of hostages.

Overnight, Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabaab, claimed responsibility for the attack, in which they targeted non-Muslims.

Fifty-nine people are thought to have died so far, and many more have been injured.”

Suspect In Killing Of Two Leftist Tunisian Politicians Was Arrested Then Released In United States Embassy Attack

 

 

 

” When Tunisian authorities released the only suspect arrested in connection to the deadly attack on the United States Embassy in Benghazi in 2012, it provoked a muted response from Washington.

Now Ali Harzi is wanted in connection to the assassinations of two Tunisian opposition politicians,Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahimi, and he remains at large.

Harzi is not the only high-profile suspect linked to allegations of violence who has managed to slip through the fingers of the Tunisian authorities, leading to questions both inside and outside the country about the government’s handling of growing insecurity.

The list of suspects charged with both killings includes people with well-established links to al-Qaeda, and to the Tunisian branch of Ansar al-Sharia, which was allegedly responsible for the Sep. 14, 2012 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Tunis.

Last year’s attacks on the U.S. embassies in Tunis, Cairo and Sana’a followed the Sep.11, 2012 killing of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi. U.S. authorities are still working to determine whether there is any link.

In his first interview with foreign media immediately after the Benghazi attack, Libyan President Mohamed al-Magarief told Al Jazeera he suspected it was a pre-planned operation by al-Qaeda.”
