Anonymous Hackers Take Aim at the Islamic State


by Christopher W. Holton

We are glad to see the hacker community taking aim at the Islamic State, but we can’t help but suggest that it is quite possible to overstate the effectiveness of their efforts.

The article linked below suggests that some in the hacking community want to attempt to disrupt Islamic State operations and others want to monitor them and report intelligence to authorities.

It is unfortunate that this was even discussed publicly because the Islamic State has a worldwide network that uses social media and the internet as a convenience, not out of necessity. Once they know they are being monitored and attacked online, they can resort to old methods of communication. Moreover, to the extent that some hackers are not familiar with counter surveillance techniques, the Islamic State can also use methods to disguise their communications online. Even if they are discovered, it may not be easy to decipher the actual messages.

We wish the hackers luck in their campaign, but don’t believe that you can ultimately defeat 1,000-year old doctrine and 7.62 X 39 rounds, RPGs and IEDs in cyberspace.



Pew: Millions of Muslims Support Islamic State

By Christopher W. Holton

A new, scientific poll conducted by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center indicates substantial support for the Islamic State (often incorrectly referred to as ISIS or ISIL) across the Islamic world.

Now Pew touts the poll by pointing out that the overwhelming majority of Muslims profess a negative view of the Islamic State, but what is more ominous are the raw numbers of Muslims who have a positive view of the Islamic State or claim to not know what their opinion of the Islamic State is…


For instance, just about one in ten Muslims in Turkey, Nigeria, Malaysia, Senegal and Pakistan have a “favorable” view of the Islamic State. Substantial numbers claim not to know what their opinion of the Islamic State is. One in five Turks, Nigerians and Indonesians “don’t know.” One in four Malaysians and Senegalese “don’t know.” And a whopping 6 in 10 of Pakistanis claim to not know what their opinion of the Islamic State is. Less than 1 in 3 Pakistanis have an unfavorable view of the Islamic State.

Conspicuously absent from the polling are Saudi Arabia and Qatar, two nations whose populations have provided Jihadist groups with substantial financial support and who have seen numerous members of their young, military age male populations join Jihadist movements.

What this translates to in raw numbers amounts to millions of Muslims around the world with a favorable view of the Islamic State.

Islamic State Threatens: America is Next


By Christopher W. Holton

No surprise here. The FBI claims to have had leads in investigations in all 50 states associated with the Islamic State. There are supposedly 1,000 such investigations coast to coast.

The Islamic State is here. Al Qaeda is here. Al Shabaab is here.

If America gets hit hard, none of us should be surprised.

ISIS has issued a chilling new video warning that countries taking part in air strikes against Syria will suffer the same fate as Paris and claimed they will attack Washington D.C. next.

The specific threat against the US capital emerged as CIA director John Brennan warned that more atrocities will be committed against the West by the Islamist terror group.

Paris is Burning…Again

Paris has become the top Western target for Jihad.

It can no longer be denied that France is in the throes of the global Islamic insurgency. Today, a coordinated, multifaceted attack eerily reminiscent of the 2008 Mumbai, India attack by Lashkar e Taiba, resulted in the deaths of at least 160 people.

The attack involved small arms and grenades and nearly simultaneous attacks in 7 different locations around Paris.

What most people do not realize is that these attacks are but the latest in a string of attacks going back to the infamous Charlie Hebdo attack 10 months ago. Everyone remembers Charlie Hebdo, but few in America realize that there have been several small-scale Jihadi incidents across France both before and after Charlie Hebdo, all of which are indicative of a revolutionary Jihadist atmosphere developing in the country.

France has been targeted because it has been the most active nation fighting Jihad in recent years, effectively decimating Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in Mali and carrying out air strikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

It is absolutely imperative that the West stand with France with more than just symbolism. Now is not the time for candlelight vigils and peace rallies. Now is the time when NATO must take the threat from the Islamic State seriously. France is a NATO nation and has been attacked by a foreign power. That means that the North Atlantic Treaty must be invoked and activated.

It is time for the full weight and force and the North Atlantic Alliance be brought to bear to end the caliphate once and for all–no matter what it takes to do so.

Senator Ted Cruz Files Bill to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as a Terrorist Organization


By Christopher W. Holton

Senator Ted Cruz has filed a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

We congratulate Senator Cruz for this long overdue move. Way back in 2007 the Bush administration was petitioned to designate the Muslim Brotherhood but they failed to do so.

Not only is the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, it is the forerunner of all modern-day Sunni Jihadist terrorist organizations.

There is a common misconception that the Muslim Brotherhood swore off violence years ago, but that myth stems from an agreement decades ago between the MB and the Egyptian government. The MB agreed not to target the Egyptian government with violence, but they never gave up all violent Jihad. That explains why their Palestinian wing, HAMAS, is one of the most savage, barbaric terrorist organizations on the planet.

Profound Ignorance or Outright Dishonesty? Ignoring the Obvious in Merced County


By Christopher W. Holton

On Wednesday, 4 November, Faisel Mohammad of Santa Clara, California went on a “stabbing spree” at the University of California at Merced in Sacramento. He stabbed 4 people before he was shot dead by police.

So far, press reports are littered with the usual “he was a quiet guy” garbage about Mohammad and the Sheriff of Merced County, Vern Warnke, who obviously knows zilch about Islamic doctrine and clearly hasn’t been paying much attention to Jihad in recent months, is insistent that this attack had nothing to do with “religion” or “politics,” but was the result of a personal vendetta because Mohammad was angry about being kicked out of a study group.

There are some facts that Sheriff Warnke is actively ignoring.

For example, the Islamic State issued a tweet acknowledging Mohammad’s attack and wishing that allah would allow him entrance into paradise. Last week this same Twitter account associated with the Islamic State posted tweets with videos calling for stabbing attacks.

We have now seen this over and over, the Islamic State, using both social media and internet bulletin boards and chat rooms, have made specific calls for acts of individual Jihad in the West and Jihadis are surfacing to carry out such attacks.

Stabbings have recently become the method of choice by Jihadis in Israel, with dozens of stabbings being carried out by Muslims. Does Sheriff Warnke even bother to watch the news?

In addition to this evidence, police have found a “manifesto” written by Mohammad and what does it contain?

• 5 references to praise for allah over two pages.

• A statement in which Mohammad said he wanted to behead someone. This is pure Jihadi doctrine, as anyone who has been paying attention the past several years knows.

The repeated denials by public officials in this country about the central role of Islamic doctrine in acts of violence are both irresponsible and obnoxious.

We are seeing the development of a “revolutionary Jihadist climate” as described by Jihadi ideologue Abu Musab al-Suri:

Successful jihad will only happen within an ummah [Islamic nation or community] in which the fighting creed is firmly established and clarified. This must happen in order to attain the “Revolutionary Jihadist Climate” that will spontaneously give rise to instruments of resistance.

Violent jihad is as an individual duty obligatory upon every Muslim. All the ulema have said this…”

Denying that individual acts of Jihad are exactly what they are is contributing to the slumber that this nation finds itself in and we will pay a dear price for it.
