Are They Kidding? Switzerland sentences returning Islamic State jihadi to COMMUNITY SERVICE

The West very often gets what it deserves. In this case, a Muslim who left Switzerland to go wage Jihad with the Islamic State returned to Switzerland and was arrested.

So what do the Swiss do with this man who sought to wage violent jihad?

They sentenced him to 600 hours of community service.

We guess this is no more stupid than Obama sending Gitmo prisoners to Uruguay…

Convert to Islam, who spent two weeks in training camp in Syria before changing his mind, has been spared jail with 600 hours of community service

Rest in Peace Peter Kassig

peter-kassig-2

Former Army Ranger Peter Kassig has been murdered by the barbaric savages of the Islamic State.

This unfortunate turn of events was certainly not a surprise. The Islamic State doesn’t release hostages. They behead them or crucify them, based on Islamic religious doctrine.

We have viewed the 16-minute propaganda video from the Islamic State. We will not link it here.

The video actually depicts an orchestrated mass beheading, not just the murder of Kassig.

One thing stood out in the video when we were looking at the twenty or so Jihadis doing the beheadings (see image below): There were many different ethnic groups represented.

Clearly, the Islamic State has gathered recruits from Muslims around the world.

This is something we already knew, but there are still many in the West who are in denial about the widespread support for and outright popularity of the Islamic State amongst the umma around the world.

A late report here from The Muslim Issue blog: evidently, one of the Jihadis doing the beheadings was a former medical student from the UK. This is one of a succession of Muslim physicians or medical students who have committed acts of Jihad…

Entire French Family Heads to Syria to Join the Jihad

Though it is too easy to dismiss this kind of thing as “crazy,” there can be no doubt that the report below is indicative of a sick culture.

People do not have to follow the doctrine laid out by a religion if that doctrine is so obviously toxic to human decency. Nevertheless, the Islamic doctrine of Jihad is 1400 years old, it is something that millions of Muslims follow and it’s not just a few “crazies.”

An investigation is being conducted by French DGSI anti-terror police after reports that eleven members of one family including the grandmother and six-month-old baby, have left the country bound for Syria in the hope of joining the Islamic State.

There are already believed to be hundreds of French nationals fighting for the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

Three generations of this particular family from Nice in the south of France left for Turkey, from where they planned to cross the border into Syria, just as thousands of other Jihadis from around the world have done. (Turkish authorities have long turned a blind eye to the flow of Jihadi recruits through and from their country.)

The family members include the grandmother, her three children, their partners and their children – the youngest of which is said to be six months old.

This is not the first from France of a family leaving together to join the jihad.

In September, a husband and wife from Orleans, France left with their three-year-old daughter to fight for the Islamic State.

In an interview with French television the couple, who left everything behind, said they wanted to join the “great heros” in the fight against the “infidels”.

At least 150 French nationals are known have joined Islamic State fighters but some estimates claim that hundreds more have left France to fight jihad in Syria.

According to a report in The Local, a French English-language news site, the jihadis hail “from varied backgrounds, dispelling widely-held beliefs that most are disadvantaged, lost youths, experts say.”

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.

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.

American Jihadists Starting to Return from War in Syria

American Jihadist in Syria

American Jihadist in Syria

One characteristic of the 1980s insurgency waged against the Soviet Army in Afghanistan was the fact that Jihadis from around the Islamic world gravitated there and then made their way back to their native countries, where they often continued to wage Jihad.

We’re now seeing the same phenomenon in Syria. The difference today is that more of the Jihadis are from Western nations, including America.

In other words, bloodthirsty Jihadis with combat training and experience gained in Syria are walking the streets of America.

U.S. intelligence reports estimate that as many as 100 American Jihadis went to war in Syria. As many as a dozen have already made their way home and have disappeared into the American landscape, out of view of US intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

The problem is even bigger for other Western nations. It is believed that some 3,000 Jihadis from Western non-Muslim nations fought in Syria.

It seems that, while the NSA has the ability to mine our cell phone records, they don’t seem capable of keeping track of American Jihadis traveling to and from a war zone where they will gain lethal skills that threaten American lives…

Two North Carolina Muslim Converts Arrested on Terrorism Charges

Two North Carolina Muslim converts were arrested on terrorism charges this week:

Authorities said in court documents that Akbar Jihad Jordan and Avin Marsalis Brown planned to travel to Syria and Yemen to fight for Islam.

Brown was arrested Wednesday at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and he told investigators that he planned to fly to Turkey and then travel to Syria, according to court records.

Brown and Jordan, a 2011 Millbrook High School graduate, began talking last May about going overseas to engage in jihad.

The pair planned to use a charity as a cover for their travels, saying the government would have a hard time making a terrorism case against them if they argued they were on a charitable mission overseas, according to court records.

These two were proselytized, then recruited to Jihad. They didn’t brew up this scheme on their own. This is so similar to what happened to Carlos Bledsoe in Tennessee before he traveled to Yemen and came back to wage Jihad in Nashville and Little Rock.

There are active Jihadi recruiting operations going on in the US…

INSANITY: Why does Judge Daniel Martin still have a job? ( Judge OKs release Illinois man charged with terror)

Federal Judge Daniel Martin of Illinois is an irresponsible louse who has committed an act of gross ignorance and betrayal in time of war.

Abdella Ahmad Tounisi, 18, of Aurora, Illinois, was arrested last month as he was preparing to board an airplane to go overseas and join an Al Qaeda-affiliated Jihadist group.

So what does Judge Martin do?

He releases the man on home confinement.

This reckless and irresponsible decision should not go unnoticed.

Not surprisingly, Martin is an Obama appointee. Someone needs to bring impeachment charges against Judge Martin immediately.

Judge Martin evidently believes that a stern “talking to” is enough to intimidate someone who was looking to join Al Qaeda…
