” The Sunni militant group in Iraq is a force roughly 3,000 strong and includes some Americans, a senior intelligence official told CBS News on Tuesday.
The majority of fighters in the group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, are of Iraqi and Syrian origin.
In all, up to 10,000 are fighting with the group, 3,000 in Iraq and another 7,000 in Syria, the intelligence official said. Between 3,000 and 5,000 are foreigners, though how many of those are in Iraq is difficult to assess.
The fighters view Syria and Iraq as one battlefield and have been able to move swiftly inside Iraq with the help of local Sunnis, ties the intelligence official described as more of a “relationship of convenience” than a formal alliance.
The official said the group, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, was well-positioned to keep the territory that it has captured but would be stretched thin if it tried to push south into Baghdad. It has intentions to target U.S. interests, the official said.”

” Sudan appeared to be bowing to international pressure on Saturday night to free a woman sentenced to death for apostasy. A foreign ministry spokesman said that Meriam Ibrahim would be released and not face further charges.
But lawyers for 27-year-old Ms Ibrahim expressed skepticism that she would be freed so quickly.
“ It’s a statement to silence the international media,” said Elshareef Ali Mohammed. “This is what the government does. We will not believe that she is being freed until she walks out of the prison.”
He said he had even heard reports that the spokesman was in the UK on medical leave when he told the BBC she would soon be freed.
“ If they were to release her, the announcement would come from the appeal court, and not from the ministry of foreign affairs. But at least it shows our campaign to free Meriam is rattling them. We must keep up the pressure.”
The sentence, which was first reported in The Telegraph on the day that Judge Abbas Khalifa handed down his ruling, caused anger which has mushroomed into a global campaign to free her. In Sudan, abandoning Islam is a crime punishable by death.
The mother of two, whose husband Daniel Wani has dual American-Sudanese citizenship, insists that she was raised as a Christian. She says her Muslim father abandoned the family when she was a child.
Mark Simmonds, the Foreign Office’s Africa minister, said on Saturday that Britain was “putting intense pressure on the Sudanese government” to ensure her release.”
Note that the pressure is coming from Britain and it’s leaders and not from our Muslim-apologist White House , even though the woman carries dual citizenship with the US and not the UK .
” On Tuesday, Ms Ibrahim gave birth in prison to a daughter, Maya – her second child – which poured fuel on the fire of criticism. Mr Wani provoked an outcry when he told The Telegraph that his wife had been forced to give birth in a clinic in the prison, rather than in hospital, and with her legs still shackled.
His comments were republished in the Sudanese daily Alyoum Altali newspaper, and clearly shook the government in Khartoum. “They wrote about how a campaign was starting in the UK, and talked about Western involvement to save her,” said Mr Elshareef. “They said that it was damaging the reputation of Sudan.”
A day after the birth, the government sent in the reporters to justify Ms Ibrahim’s detention.
“ They interviewed a scholar, who goes into the prison to teach the women about Islam,” he said. “She also said that Meriam is a Muslim, because she is part of this campaign by some Islamists to claim that she committed apostasy. But everyone who knows Meriam knows that she is a Christian, and this is not true.”
” THE WAR ON WOMEN …in New York:
An elderly Pakistani immigrant beat his wife to death with a stick after the doomed woman made the mistake of cooking him lentils for dinner instead of the hearty meal of goat meat that he craved, according to court papers.
Noor Hussein, 75, was so outraged over the prospect of eating the vegetarian fare that he pummeled his wife, Nazar Hussein, 66, inside their Brooklyn apartment until she was a “bloody mess,” prosecutors said in opening statements of his murder trial Wednesday.
Mr Hussein used “a stick that the family had found in the street and used to stir their laundry in a washtub”. So, aside from a new wife, the poor guy now has to get a new laundry stick. His attorney says we need to be more culturally sensitive:
” He comes from a culture where he thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife,” Clark said in her opening statements at the Brooklyn Supreme Court bench trial. “He culturally believed he had the right to hit his wife and discipline his wife.”
~THE WAR ON WOMEN …in Quebec:
A father will serve 60 days in jail for a slap that killed his teenage daughter.
Moussa Sidimé, 74, says he just wanted to correct 13-year-old Noutene for doing a bad job of washing the kitchen floor.
If that 60 days in jail sounds a bit stiff, not to say culturally insensitive, don’t worry, Mr Sidimé is already a third of the way through it:
Sidimé will not have to serve the 60 days consecutively. He will serve his time on Mondays and Tuesdays starting next week.
~THE WAR ON WOMEN …in British Columbia:
The mother of a B.C. teen who died of suicide after being tormented online told a federal justice committee Tuesday that proposed anti-cyberbullying legislation doesn’t do enough to protect the privacy rights of Canadians.
Carol Todd, whose 15-year-old daughter Amanda Todd died in 2012, was in Ottawa to speak before the Commons Justice committee about Bill C-13, also known as the Protecting Canadians from Online Crime Act.
Todd said she was “troubled” by portions of the bill, telling the committee that parents shouldn’t have to “sacrifice” their children’s privacy rights to make them safe from “cyberbullying, ‘sextortion’ and revenge pornography.” “
” In a bizarre and grotesque statement, the state Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Abu Azmi said women who were raped should also be punished. The statement came after this reporter questioned Azmi about SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s comments on rape.
Yadav had, at a rally in UP, said that the death sentence, as punishment, for rape was too harsh. “Ladkon se aisi galtiyan ho jati hain, to iska matlab yeh to nahi ki unhe phaansi de di jaaye (Boys make mistakes, but this doesn’t mean you hang them),” he told the gathering. (Mulayam’s shocker on rape: ‘they are boys, they make mistakes’)
When this reporter asked for Azmi’s comments on his chief’s statements, he replied that rape was punishable by death in Islam. “Rape is punishable by hanging in Islam. But here, nothing happens to women, only to men. Even the woman is guilty.”
He further added, “In India, if you have sex with a person with consent, it’s fine. But if that same person complains, it’s a problem. Nowadays, we see a lot of such cases. Girls complain when someone touches them, and even when someone doesn’t touch them. It becomes a problem then, and the man’s honour is ruined in this. If rape happens with or without consent, it should be punished as prescribed in Islam.”
When asked for a solution to the problem of rapes, Azmi had this to say: “Solution is this: any woman if, whether married or unmarried, goes along with a man, with or without her consent, should be hanged. Both should be hanged. It shouldn’t be allowed even if a woman goes by consent.” “

” A Moroccan man was busted for allegedly plotting to attack a school and a Connecticut federal building using remote-controlled toy planes packed with explosives.
FBI agents arrested El Mehdi Semlali Fahti, 27, after a sting revealed his alleged plot, according to the Connecticut Post.
The feds found wires and tools in Fahti’s Stamford home, the report said. It was not clear if he had any explosives there as well.
He allegedly told an agent that he had studied the plan for months, that he had learned how to pack the explosives while he was a student in his home country, and that he would be able to obtain the materials at the Mexican border, the newspaper reported.
He also said the plot would be funded through “secret accounts” that used laundered cash and drug-dealing profits.“
There’s no need to secure our border , nah , nothing bad can come from the unchecked illegal invasion of our southern border . Can’t we sue the Federal government for failure to do their PRIMARY job ?

Son Hits His Mother On National TV – إبن يضرب والدته على الهواء

These are the people that the Left would have us consider as equals . Feh , a pox on them all .
” Islamic law is to be effectively enshrined in the British legal system for the first time under guidelines for solicitors on drawing up “Sharia compliant” wills.
Under ground-breaking guidance, produced by The Law Society, High Street solicitors will be able to write Islamic wills that deny women an equal share of inheritances and exclude unbelievers altogether.
The documents, which would be recognized by Britain’s courts, will also prevent children born out of wedlock – and even those who have been adopted – from being counted as legitimate heirs.
Anyone married in a church, or in a civil ceremony, could be excluded from succession under Sharia principles, which recognize only Muslim weddings for inheritance purposes.
Some lawyers, however, described the guidance as “astonishing”, while campaigners warned it represented a major step on the road to a “parallel legal system” for Britain’s Muslim communities.”
Here is the real war on women , brought to you by the self-righteous fools on the Left … coming soon to an American state near you .
” Baroness Cox, a cross-bench peer leading a Parliamentary campaign to protect women from religiously sanctioned discrimination, including from unofficial Sharia courts in Britain, said it was a “deeply disturbing” development and pledged to raise it with ministers.
“This violates everything that we stand for,” she said. “It would make the Suffragettes turn in their graves.”
The Telegraph has more on this insanity … the civilizational suicide accelerates … What’s next ? Stonings ? Where will the progression stop ?
Anyone foolish enough to believe that the Muslims only desire to become integrated citizens of the American “melting pot” as have generations of our descendants need read no further than this quote :
” Adam Soltani, executive director of CAIR-Oklahoma, offered the following statement: “We believe that mandating the Pledge of Allegiance contradicts its contents.” Devout Muslims cannot begin to understand it contents: “with liberty and justice for all” is blasphemy under Islam. “Liberty and justice for all” is an assault on Islamic supremacism. You cannot adhere to the tenets of Islam and tolerate “liberty and justice for all,” let alone fight for it, die for it.”
The tenets of Islam are the antithesis of the beliefs of the average American and thus there is no hope for a peaceful co-existence . Their ultimate goal , stated plainly and endlessly , is nothing short of total subjugation of the كافر (infidel) .
None other than Thomas Jefferson , recognized the threat that Islam posed to the prospects of “liberty and justice ” for all , writing in 1786 :
“…that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
Two hundred plus years later nothing has changed , except the means with which they are able to project their violent beliefs upon a complacent society .
” This documentary undertakes an extensive investigation into a number of British mosques to reveal how a message of hatred and segregation is being spread throughout the UK. Filming undercover at mosques run by key organisations, whose public faces are presented as moderate and mainstream, our reporter finds preachers condemning the idea of integration into British society, condemning British democracy as un-Islamic and praising the Taliban for killing British soldiers.
The investigation examines how such extreme messages are influenced by the religious establishment of Saudi Arabia and reveals how the influence of Wahabism extends to influential organisations that advise the British government on inter-community relations and prevention of terrorism.”
” A few weeks back, I wrote:
At this point, Americans sigh wearily and shrug, “Afghanistan, the graveyard of empire,” or sneer, “If they want to live in a seventh-century s***hole, f*** ‘em.” But neither assertion is true. Do five minutes’ googling, and you’ll find images from the Sixties and early Seventies of women in skirts above the knee listening to the latest Beatles releases in Kabul record stores.
Dangerous Minds has now assembled a collection of these photographs – not just Kabul coeds and teenyboppers but scientific researchers, too – from the Seventies, Sixties and Fifties, and they’re well worth taking a look at, if only to understand the totality of our failure there.”
Swiss Member Of Parliament Oskar Freysinger Has Had Enough

” Oskar Freysinger, a member of the Swiss Parliament gave a passionate speech filled with truth that no politician in Washington, DC has yet to give from the floor of Congress. He calls out Islam for what it is: A dogma that is gnawing away at the pillars of our system of laws, wherever it is granted the space to do so.

” Multiculturalism continues to run amok in the UK.”
” The Shariah Project, a London-based Muslim group, is to march through Brick Lane on Friday against the drinking and sale of alcohol along the nightlife spot.
Members of the group believe the consumption or selling of alcohol to be “sinful” under Islamic law and should be “strictly prohibited”.
They hope that the rally, scheduled for the afternoon following Friday prayers, will illuminate the ills of alcohol.”
” A recent report has come out saying that the Republic of Angola has closed down or destroyed most mosques in its country, and the crackdown continues.
There were 78 mosques in Angola, now they have been reduced to only a few, because most of them were closed down except the remaining number in the capital city of Luanda, and the only reason why they are still there is because of the world’s protest against the anti-Islamic policy.According to David Ja:
The mosques in Luanda were supposed to be closed yesterday but because of an international furor about reports that Angola had banned Islam, the government decided not to …So, at the moment, mosques in Luanda are open and people are going for prayers.
Also, according to Ja, the Angolan government began to shut down mosques in 2010, and they justified the measure by saying that Islam “was an invasion of Angolan culture and a threat to Christian values.”
And it most definitely is.”
And we can say that as long as the extremists continue to use mosques as safe houses , refuges , weapons depots and places to plan and facilitate the destruction of the western cultures they are political structures and not houses of worship and as such should be viewed with the same opinion one would have of a drug dealer’s home base or an enemy army’s headquarters .
The largely unspoken (by the western side anyway) war that rages between Islam and ALL non-believers is the Muslim’s own choice . No one is trying to subvert Islam or force their conversion to Christianity so as long as they engage in war on the infidel , us infidels had better be prepared to fight back . The most basic first step in this clash of civilizations is to take away the enemy’s safe havens .
As long as the adherents of Islam hide their martial intentions behind a cloak of piety they should be considered poseurs and recognized as the terrorists/cultural combatants that they are and be made to pay the price for their cowardly ways .
” A number of news outlets have reported that Angola has “banned” Islam and started to dismantle mosques in a bold effort to stem the spread of Muslim extremism.
Angola is a majority-Christian nation of about 16 million people, an estimated 55 percent of whom are Catholic, 25 percent of whom belong to African Christian denominations, 10 percent of whom follow major Protestant traditions, 5 percent of whom belong to Brazilian Evangelical churches and where only between 80,000 and 90,000 people are Muslim, according to the U.S. State Department.
Weekly French-language Moroccan newspaper La Nouvelle Tribune published an article on Friday sourcing “several” Angolan officials, including the Southwest African nation’s minister of culture, Rosa Cruz, who reportedly offered the following remarks, which have been translated from French: “The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, their mosques would be closed until further notice.”
OnIslam.net reports that the African economic news agency Agence Ecofin wrote that Cruz made the statement at an appearance last week before the 6th Commission of the National Assembly. The website goes on to note that, “According to several Angolan newspapers, Angola has become the first country in the world to ban Islam and Muslims, taking first measures by destroying mosques in the country.” “
This makes a lot of sense and no doubt will be seen as a very controversial move , especially by the atheistic Left . We can hear the moralizing already . To be fair though , there will probably be plenty of carping from our own libertarian side as well , but the way we see it , Islam is less a religion and more a political cult and thus unworthy of the basic protections on freedom of religion .
This is a surprising development and yet it makes perfect sense from a survival point of view and confirms what we were saying only the other day about the believers of Africa being the ones to strike the first blow for Christianity in the looming “Clash of Civilizations“. More power to Angola , let’s hope this spirit of self-preservation continues to spread .
For the “crime” of being raped young Islamic women are often put to death . To save the family “honor” , don’t you know . As if a civilization that counts a woman as having half the value as a man as these people do have any concept of honor .
This is the way they treat their women
” ‘The way Islam has been practiced in most Muslim societies for centuries has left millions of Muslim women with battered bodies, minds and souls.’
Part of the problem dates to Muhammad. Even as he proclaimed new rights for women, he enshrined their inequality in immutable law, passed down as God’s commandments and eventually recorded in scripture. The Koran allots daughters half the inheritance of sons. It decrees that a woman’s testimony in court, at least in financial matters, is worth half that of a man’s. Under Shari’s or Muslim law, compensation for the murder of a woman is half the going rate for men.
In many Muslim countries, these directives are incorporated into contemporary law. For a woman to prove rape in Pakistan, for example, four adult males of ‘impeccable’ character must witness the penetration, in accordance with Shari’a. Even in country like Egypt much of the legal code has been secularized. In Islam, women can have only one spouse, while men are permitted four. The legal age for girls to marry tends to be very young. Muhammad’s favorite wife, A’isha, according to her biographer, was six when they wed, nine when the marriage was consummated.”
The term “honor killing” itself is something of an oxymoron when used in the context of women and Islam .
” Due to recent media attention, the problem of “honor killings” has come under increasing global scrutiny. In various countries throughout the world, particularly in the Middle East and parts of South Asia, women who bring dishonor to their families because of sexual indiscretions are forced to pay a terrible price at the hands of male family members. Attempted murder and other forms of corporal punishment have been reported. The most severe manifestations of punishment affect only a small percentage of women, even though the notion of family honor and shame is extremely important in most communities of the Muslim world. Women from other faith groups may also be subject to similar attitudes from within their own communities in those countries. Clearly, the prevailing view that devalues and belittles women is derived from sociocultural factors that are justified by a distorted and erroneous interpretation of religion, especially of Islam.”

” On Florida’s Atlantic Coast, some 200 or more local parents and activists have announced plans to show up at Tuesday’s Volusia County school board meeting to protest the public school use of a world history textbook that devotes a whole chapter to Islam but exactly zero chapters to any other religions.
The textbook, called simply “World History,” contains a 32-page chapter fondly devoted to “Muslim Civilizations.” Sections include descriptions of the Koran, the growth of the Muslim empire and the Five Pillars of Islam.
The planned protest will include a demand that students rip out the 32 pages of the Islam chapter unless the school district agrees to provide students with a similar amount of officially-sanctioned material concerning other religions, reports local ABC affiliate WFTV.”
” Francesco Hounye, 22, who lives in Florida, was beaten savagely by the men who surrounded him, who kicked and punched him before smashing the bottle of beer into his face. Hounye was taken to hospital with deep slash wounds to his head. He has suffered permanent scarring and a chipped tooth.
The attack took place in an area where police say self-appointed “Muslim patrols” have been operating. The men have allegedly targeted gay Londoners, drinkers and women they consider to be dressed inappropriately.
“I am now scared to go out on my own in London,” said Houyne, in a statement released by the police. “I feel very emotional about the whole situation. I also now face the rest of my life with the permanent scarring that will be left on my face as a result of this attack. Every time I look in the mirror from now on I will be reminded of this incident.” “
Thank goodness Islam is a “religion of peace” . Imagine the horrors in the world if Muslims were of a violent creed .
