Oklahoma Beheader Tied to CAIR-Associated Imam

By Christopher Holton

BreitBart.com has a report this morning that indicates that Jah’Keem Yisrael (aka Alton Nolen) the Oklahoma Muslim who beheaded a former co-worker following an argument about the Islamic practice of stoning women has ties, some direct and some indirect, to prominent figures in the US Islamic community.

Yisrael attended the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, a mosque affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

ISNA is the largest Muslim organization in the US. It was exposed as a Muslim Brotherhood front in documents stipulated to by the defense and entered into evidence in the largest terrorism financing prosecution in US history, the US v the Holy Land Foundation. ISNA was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in that trial. Later, when ISNA tried to get that designation removed or retracted, a federal judge in New Orleans refused their request, calling the designation accurate and proper.

The only thing that kept ISNA from prosecution on terror charges was the corrupt influence of Attorney General Eric Holder, who shut down the ongoing investigation.

One of the Imams at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City was Suhaib Webb, who BreitBart reports was close to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula Imam Anwar al-Awlaki.

Webb is now affiliated with the Islamic Society of Boston (another ISNA mosque), the notorious mosque co-founded by convicted Al Qaeda terrorist Abdurahman Alamoudi and attended by the Boston Marathon bombers, the Tsarnaev brothers. As USA Today reported back in April 2013, the Islamic Society of Boston has been absolutely littered with Jihadis and terrorists over the years.

In October 2013, Webb appeared at a Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) event where he attacked human rights activist (and victim of Islamic Female Genital Mutilation) Hirsi Ali and openly called for an Islamic dominated society and system of government–essentially an Islamic State.

CAIR, like ISNA, was also exposed as a Muslim Brotherhood front in the Holy Land Foundation trial and also named an un-indicted co-conspirator in that trial. FBI surveillance evidence also revealed that CAIR is essentially a US arm of HAMAS, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.

More recently, in association with the Oklahoma beheading, CAIR has sought to distance itself from Jah’Keem Yisrael. Adam Soltani of CAIR-Oklahoma stated that “Islam stands clearly opposed to violence in any kind and in no way could or faith ever support the actions of this man.”

The available evidence, dating back 1400 years to the earliest origins of Islamic doctrine to the actions of literally dozens of Jihadist organizations on every continent, save Antarctica, contradicts this ridiculous statement by Soltani.

Anyone who has been paying attention knows that Jihadis from around the world have been using beheading in gruesome, flamboyant manner. The incident in Oklahoma was anything but isolated.

There have been a series of beheadings of hostages by Al Qaeda and the Islamic State; Daniel Pearl, James Foley, Steven Sotloff, David Haines and Herve Gourdel are just a few of the Westerners beheaded by Jihadis.

Last week, Australian authorities disrupted an Islamic State plot to carry out beheading attacks on the streets of that country.

In addition, there have been beheadings committed by individual Muslims carrying out acts of Jihad. There was the beheading murder of British soldier Lee Rigby at the hands of Muslims Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale on the streets of London. Earlier this month, an 82-year old woman was beheaded in her garden in London by a 25-year old Muslim.

In 2009, Muslim TV executive Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan beheaded his wife after being served with divorce papers. Hassan was considered a prominent “moderate” Muslim all the way up until the time he sawed his wife’s head off.

The point of all this is that there is a definite pattern here. There are many ways to kill someone. But Muslim jihadis choose to behead their victims.

Why?

Because Islamic doctrine says that they should. Multiple verses in the Koran and stories from the Hadith urge Muslims to behead the enemies of allah and demonstrate that the prophet Mohammed led his Jihadi fighters in mass beheadings. Under the Islamic doctrine of Sunna, Muslims are supposed to follow the perfect example set by Mohammed. And Mohammed beheaded his victims.

Pay no attention to the psychobabble coming out of the news media and the federal government–Islamic doctrine is the foundation for these beheadings. It is in their scripture. Period.

Be especially wary of taqiyya (sacred deception to promote Islam) coming from Islamic leaders and organizations when it comes to beheadings.

It’s not the first time we have seen this intentional lying. CAIR in particular has a long history of this activity as we discussed in an article back in 2013:

http://terrortrendsbulletin.com/2013/01/13/cairs-new-disinformation-campaign-on-jihad/

CAIR in particular is a troubling organization that can only be described as a nefarious 5th Column unit.

Here are some concerns that thousands of Americans have about CAIR:

  • CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the US v. Holy Land Foundation, the largest terrorism financing prosecution in US history.
  • The Holy Land Foundation was a Texas-based charity whose officers were sentenced in May 2009 to between 15 and 65 years in prison for funneling over $12 million to Hamas. One of the sentenced officers, Ghassan Elashi, is the founder of CAIR’s Dallas chapter. Elashi’s illegal activities took place while he was affiliated with CAIR.
  • CAIR opened its first office in Washington, D.C. with the help of a $5,000 grant from the Holy Land Foundation.
  • In a formal letter to Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona dated 28 April 2009, the FBI stated that during the Holy Land Foundation trial, “evidence was introduced that demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders (including its current President Emeritus and its Executive Director) and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and HAMAS, which was designated as a terrorist organization in 1995. In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI.”
  • In March 2011, Muthanna al-Hanooti, one of CAIR’s directors, was sentenced to a year in federal prison for violating U.S. sanctions against Saddam’s Iraq.
  • In January of 2011, the CAIR California chapter published a poster promoting a conference called “Know Your Rights and Defend Our Communities.” That poster prominently featured the following slogan: “BUILD A WALL OF RESISTANCE DON’T TALK TO THE FBI.”
  • On March 22, 1994, During a panel discussion at Barry University in Florida, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said: “I used to support the PLO, and I used to be the President of the General Union of Palestine Students which is part of the PLO here in the United States, but after I researched the situation inside Palestine and outside, I am in support of the Hamas movement more than the PLO.”
  • On February 2, 1995, U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White named CAIR Advisory Board member and New York imam Siraj Wahhaj as one of the “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in Egyptian Islamic Group leader “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman’s foiled plot to blow up numerous New York City monuments.
  • On April 19, 1996, in its first published report on alleged anti-Muslim discrimination, titled “The Price of Ignorance,” CAIR cited the arrest of Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman (the Blind Sheikh), the Egyptian cleric serving a life sentence for conspiracy to blow up New York landmarks in 1993, and the detention of senior Hamas leader Musa Abu Marzuq, as “incidents of bias and violence” against Muslims in the U.S.
  • On July 4, 1998, former CAIR chairman Omar M. Ahmad, told Fremont, California’s daily newspaper, The Argus, that “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant, he said. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
  • In October 1998, CAIR demanded the removal of a Los Angeles billboard describing Osama bin Laden as “the sworn enemy.” According to CAIR, this depiction was “offensive to Muslims.”
  • In 1993, CAIR spokesperson Ibrahim Hooper told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future. … But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”
  • In September 2003, CAIR’s former Community Affairs Director, Bassem Khafagi, pled guilty to three federal counts of bank and visa fraud and agreed to be deported to Egypt. Federal investigators said that a group Khafagi founded, the Islamic Assembly of North America, had funneled money to activities supporting terrorism and had published material advocating suicide attacks against the United States. Khafagi’s illegal activities took place while he was employed by CAIR.
  • In 2004, CAIR-Northern Virginia director Abdurahman Alamoudi pled guilty to terrorism-related financial and conspiracy charges in 2004, which resulted in a 23-year prison sentence.
  • In 2006, the co-founder of CAIR’s parent organization, IAP (Islamic Association for Palestine), Sami Al-Arian, was sentenced to 57 months in prison on terrorism charges for financing Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a designated terrorist organization according to the US State Department.
  • On August 12, 2006 CAIR helped to coordinate a number of demonstrations in support of Hezbollah and “resistance” groups fighting American forces in Iraq.
  • Randall Todd Royer, who served as a communications specialist and civil rights coordinator for CAIR, trained with Lashkar-I-Taiba, an al Qaeda-tied Kashmir organization that is listed on the State Department’s international terror list. He was also indicted on charges of conspiring to help al Qaeda and the Taliban battle American troops in Afghanistan. He later pled guilty to lesser firearm-related charges and was sentenced to twenty years in prison on April 9, 2004.  Royer’s illegal activities took place while he was employed by CAIR.
  • Onetime CAIR fundraiser Rabih Haddad was arrested on terrorism-related charges and was deported from the United States due to his subsequent work as Executive Director of the Global Relief Foundation, which in October 2002 was designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Haddad raised money for the Ann Arbor, Michigan chapter of CAIR.
  • On April 20, 2002: Nihad Awad addressed an anti-Israel rally in Washington D.C. while standing next to Hezbollah flag.
  • On October 12, 2001: Ghazi Kankan, executive director of CAIR’s New York office at the time, defended Hamas’s targeting of Israeli civilians. He told the Jewish Week that, like Hamas, he considered all Israelis over the age of 18 to be “military” because “they are all reserves.”

Given the number of individuals associated with CAIR who have been convicted on terrorism-related causes, as well as the disturbing associations and statements from CAIR and its officials, it is very difficult to take their statements on violent Jihad seriously.

 

 

 

You Can’t Outsource Our National Security

Excerpt and LINK from my guest article in The Hayride…

Putting off defeating the Islamic State militarily until we can stand up a force of anti-Assad rebels who are also interested in fighting fellow Muslims is a fool’s errand.

By declaring ahead of time to the enemy what his intentions are and, especially what he is NOT willing to do, President Obama has lost the initiative. Telling the world that you have ruled out American “boots on the ground,” tells the world that you either don’t take the threat from the Islamic State seriously or that you simply don’t have your heart in the fight to make the hard decisions that great leaders have always had to make throughout history to defend our republic and its people.

A Couple of Random Thoughts on Islamic Jihad

1. There are now reports that as many as 800 French Muslims are fighting with the Islamic State. This figure is added to an estimate of 300 from the US, 500 from the UK, 400 from Germany, 150 from Australia and 130 from Austria. There is a report of 22 from one mosque in Denmark alone. Estimates indicate that fully 10% of IS fighters are Turks, which would put the number at 2,000.

Little Tunisia says that 1,300 of its citizens are fighting with IS. There are of course known Chechans, Malaysians and Indonesians fighting for IS (a mosque in Indonesia was distributing IS recruiting literature).

And let’s not forget that Boko Haram, Abu Sayyaf and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula have all pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.

This isn’t happening spontaneously. All of these Jihadis didn’t just all of a sudden visit a web site and decide to drop everything and head to Iraq and Syria.

There is an Islamic Underground in the West that was activated to get recruits and support for IS, a 5th Column. It is efficient and robust, because Muslims by the thousands have answered this call to head to an area many couldn’t find on a map to participate in Jihad.

Moreover, the way that the Obama administration and the US State Department keep referring to IS as a “regional” problem is positively maddening and frightening. It is nothing of the such and denying the Islamic State’s global reach is no small matter.

2. de Tocqueville compares Islam to Christianity:

From Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville, 1840.

“Mahommed professed to derive from Heaven, and he has inserted in the Koran, not only a body of religious doctrines, but political maxims, civil and criminal laws, and theories of science. The gospel, on the contrary, only speaks of the general relations of men to God and to each other — beyond which it inculcates and imposes no point of faith. This alone, besides a thousand other reasons, would suffice to prove that the former of these religions will never long predominate in a cultivated and democratic age, whilst the latter is destined to retain its sway at these as at all other periods.”

de Tocqueville nailed Islam way back in 1840. The question is, will his prediction of the outcome prove correct? Or will Western weakness and recalcitrance result in an outcome tragically different from what he forecast?

This is What National Security Malpractice Looks Like: FBI Ignores Domestic Jihad Threat

Bill Gertz has an article over on the Washington Free Beacon about a new FBI Domestic Threat Assessment.

The 60-page report makes absolutely no mention of the threat from Jihadists or Islamic terrorism, which are, in fact the primary domestic terror threats, no matter what the “Famous But Incompetent” boys and girls would have us believe.

Here is a link to Gertz’s article with lots of good quotes from true expert John Guandolo:

And here are a few links to prior TTB posts over the years detailing the domestic Jihadi threat that the Famous But Incompetent folks now essentially say does not exist:

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Republican Friend in Michigan

msnbc_mj_snyder_121212b-615x345

Michigan GOP Governor Rick Snyder is slated to speak at the annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention. Jimmy Carter is delivering the keynote, which should tell us what the tone of the convention will be:

http://www.toledoblade.com/Religion/2014/08/23/President-Jimmy-Carter-to-be-keynote-speaker-at-Muslim-convention.html

In 2011, Snyder spoke at an event sponsored by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR):

http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20110323/POLITICS02/103230392/1022/Census-shows-Michigan-needs-immigrants–Snyder-says

Both CAIR and ISNA were unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorism financing prosecution in US history, the U.S. v the Holy Land Foundation, in which the defendants were convicted on all counts.

Both CAIR and ISNA were identified as Muslim Brotherhood organizations in captured documents submitted into
evidence by the prosecution and stipulated to by the defense team.

Snyder was cautioned about Muslim Brotherhood influence operations after his speech at the CAIR event.

He can no longer plead ignorance.

HOLTON: The Enemy Knows We’re In A World War, But We Don’t

Excerpt and LINK from my guest article in The Hayride…

The Islamic State is not simply an Iraqi problem or a Syrian problem. IS has metastasized into a worldwide organization with 20,000 recruits from Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, the U.S., Great Britain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Spain, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Germany. Even worse, Jihadists from Boko Haram in Nigeria, Abu Sayyef in the Philippines, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in Northwest Africa and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula from Yemen have all pledged allegiance to IS.

There can no longer be any doubt that the global Islamic insurgency that some have been warning about for some time, amounts to a world war. Nevertheless, policymakers here in the U.S. continue to ignore or deny this reality.

Over the period of a generation, the West has allowed itself to be thoroughly infiltrated by a savage and barbaric belief system. This is evidenced by the global base of recruitment that the Islamic State has been able to take advantage of and the numerous public displays of support for IS in the West.

Denial from the Obama Administration and the American Left on the Islamic State Threat

By Christopher Holton

Stupidity and cowardice is latent in the DNA of the American Left when it comes to the threat from Jihad.. In a recent article in The Hill, it is clear that the administration refuses to acknowledge the terror threat to the US posed by ISIS/ISIL/IS.This is part of a long-standing pattern of denial to make Obama appear triumphant, particularly since the death of Bin Laden, but also before. The denial of the Jihadi connections and intentions of the Fort Hood and Little Rock shooters are examples as well…

“We have said if there is a counterterrorism target that involves potential plotting against the United States, we always reserve the right to act,” said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, said on MSNBC on Friday. 

“That would be separate, though, from the two missions that the president authorized yesterday,” he said. 

If you’re having a tough time deciphering that statement by Ben Rhodes, you’re not alone.

At what point can we depend on our bureaucratized counter terror apparatus to warn us of a terrorism “plot” prompting us to “act?” After all, back in January, Obama himself dismissed this threat as the “jayvee.” One gets the impression from that incredible statement (which should echo in everyone’s ears for the remainder of Obama’s term) that the “intelligence community” whiffed yet again on getting a read on the threat from Jihad.

It is instructive to note that ISIS/ISIL/IS is still not listed among the US State Department’s designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations:

http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/other/des/123085.htm

Check out THIS quote from Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.):

“When we bomb ISIS, which is a horrible group, we have to realize that we are heading down the path of choosing sides in an ancient religious and sectarian war inside Iraq,”

ISIS is already targeting Christians. They haven’t targeted Jews because there are no Jews to target–yet. America is a nation with predominantly Judeo-Christian values. ISIS has overtly threatened the US homeland. Does the moron McGovern think that we should not take seriously the threats from a Jihadist terrorist group that is already committing genocide?

When exactly would it be appropriate for the US to act? After 3000 Americans lay dead?

Moreover, McGovern demonstrates a profound ignorance of the ISIS/ISIL/IS organization. The organization is not made up chiefly of Iraqis trying to overthrow the Iraqi government. No, it is made up of Jihadis from around the world, including Westerners (US, UK, Spain, The Netherlands, France to name a few), Syrians, Turks (said to make up 10%), Iraqis, Saudis, Indonesians and, most recently, Filipinos.

This isn’t about a sectarian war inside Iraq. This is about a large Jihadist organization of global reach hell-bent for leather on committing genocide–and one that has expressly threatened the USA to boot.

We don’t need folks like McGovern in Congress in a time of war and, make no mistake about it, the war is still raging. Just because Obama wants to quit does’t mean the war will end.

It should also be pointed out that this same Left-wing crowd is the gang who are in a race to disarm America unilaterally–starting with the very troops needed to fight against organizations like ISIS/ISIL/IS–in an apparent effort to prevent us from being able to deal with threats overseas. (They have their useful idiots on the Right too, chiefly the Pauls and their fellow travelers.)

The country is not being run by responsible adults. The Obama regime is populated by amateurs from top to bottom and its most reliable allies in Congress refuse to recognize the severe threat to Western Civilization posed by ISIS/ISIL/IS. This will not end well…

Syrian Muslim Brotherhood Working Toward Same Goal As ISIS

There is a great deal of confusion about the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in the global jihadist insurgency.

The best way to describe the MB’s role is to say that it is the political wing of the insurgency and groups like ISIS, Al Qaeda, HAMAS and others are the military wing of that insurgency.

In terms of their goals, they are the same.

ISIS has established an Islamic state in parts of Iraq and Syria. Al Qaeda seeks to to the same globally and regionally (in the Arabian peninsula and the Maghreb for instance). HAMAS seeks to replace Israel with an Islamic state. It goes without saying that these Islamic states are to be ruled under Shariah.

The Muslim Brotherhood has the same goal: the establishment of Islamic states ruled by Shariah, culminating in the (impossible) dream of a worldwide caliphate.

If you want evidence of this, just view the recent screen capture from the Muslim Brotherhood’s official web site.

The main headline reflects that the MB seeks to overthrow the regime in Syria–the same goal as ISIS.

Further down, a smaller headline expresses support for Jihadists fighting the regime in Yemen.

The ISIS Threat is Greater Than You Realize

ISIS has been allowed to metastasize. It is now operating in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. There are reports it is operating in Libya. Aby Sayyaf in the Philippines has pledged allegiance to ISIS. ISIS has recruits from the US, the UK, Western Europe and just about every Islamic nation on the globe–some 20,000 fighters by some estimates. There have been demonstrations in support of ISIS in The Netherlands, Austria and Indonesia. ISIS leaders have promised to “see us in New York.”

Sooner or later, we will have to fight ISIS, whether we want to or not. We are squarely in their sights. The longer we wait, the more difficult the task will become. I have zero confidence that Obama will recognize these facts. He is in the process of hollowing out the US military precisely to prevent such operations, not just in his regime, but in future presidential administrations as well. We are in far deeper trouble than even most conservatives realize.

Abu Sayyaf Joins the Islamic State

At what point does Obama’s so-called “jayvee” become enough of a threat to mobilize action to put them down?
