New Update on Jihadist Threat on America’s Porous Southern Border


posted by Christopher W. Holton

The Washington Times is reporting that two Pakistani nationals with terrorist ties were apprehended on the southern US border near San Diego back in September:

The Border Patrol nabbed two Pakistani men with ties to terrorism at the U.S.-Mexico border in September in the latest instance of illegal immigrants from so-called “special interest countries” using the southern border as a point of entry to the U.S.

Muhammad Azeem and Mukhtar Ahmad, both in their 20s and from Gujrat, were caught Sept. 20 by agents south of San Diego and just over the international border from Tijuana. When agents checked their identities through databases they got hits on both of them: Mr. Ahmad popped up as an associate of a known or suspected terrorist, while Mr. Azeem’s information had been shared by a foreign government for intelligence purposes.

Both men had been processed two months earlier by immigration officials in Panama, suggesting they took advantage of smuggling networks or other routes increasingly used by Central American illegal immigrants to sneak into the U.S.

Long-time readers of TTB may recall last year’s detailed analysis of the Jihadi threat on our porous southern border, which we relink here for further background detail to match the Washington Times report above:


The Plot Thickens: Did the San Bernardino Cleric Lie?

Paul Sperry posted a hugely important article on the New York Post yesterday that should be the top of the news on Drudge.

Roshan Zamir Abbassi is an Imam at the San Bernardino mosque where the two barbaric savages, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, worshipped.

He claimed that he barely knew either of the two shooters.

Problem is, his phone records show no fewer than 38 messages exchanged over a two-week period back in June–at the same time another barbaric savage murdered US servicemen in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

India Cuts Deal With American Jihadi Involved in Mumbai Massacre


By Christopher W. Holton

India has granted a partial pardon to David Coleman Headley, the naturalized U.S. citizen and former DEA informant, who conducted reconnaissance ahead of the horrible Mumbai massacre back in 2008.

Reportedly, India has granted this partial pardon in return for Headley’s testimony about support from Pakistani military/intelligence officials for Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Jihadist terror group that pulled off the attack.

That Mumbai attack apparently served as a model for future attacks, including the Paris attacks this year and the recent attack in San Bernardino.

For those of you who are not familiar with that attack, in which at least 10 Jihadists carried out a dozen separate attacks using small arms, grenades and IEDs, killing 166 innocent civilians in hotels and other soft targets, there is a good documentary online about it:

The partial pardon for Headley is likely to be very controversial in India.

Here is a link to a good documentary about Headley’s life as a Jihadist and an informant who fooled U.S. authorities, causing them to look the other way in return for drug information while he was hiding right out in the open as a Jihadist.

David Coleman Headley’s story illustrates just how long Jihad has been embedded here in America. It is now being operationalized and we will likely find out its infrastructure is much more developed and widespread than anyone previously believed.

Details on the Demise of Adnan El Shukrijumah, Al Qaeda Jihadi from Florida

Killed by Pakistani Army in December 2014

Killed by Pakistani Army in December 2014

Adnan El Shukrijumah was one of America’s most wanted terrorists until he was killed by the Pakistani army almost a year ago.

Linked below is an article outlining what led to his demise–he was essentially turned in by another Jihadi.

What we would like to point out as particularly interesting is the fact that his father was the imam at a local mosque in Miramar, Florida and claims to have no idea how his son could have found his way to Al Qaeda.

This is a recurring theme and one that we ignore too much in the U.S. Shukrijumah finds his way to Al Qaeda  and his father, the Imam, has no idea how it happened?

The same thing happened in Daphne, Alabama, where Omar Hammami found his way to Al Shabaab, where he too was killed. His Dad was the imam at the Islamic Center in Daphne and claims that he has no idea how his son, the former president of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of South Alabama, found his way to Jihad.

More recently, back in August of 2015, Muhammed Dakhlalla, son of the Imam at Islamic Center of Mississippi in Starkville, was arrested on terrorism-related charges for seeking to join the Islamic State Jihad. Once again, the father claimed to be totally shocked that his son became involved in Jihad.

We don’t believe in coincidences and we have studied too much Islamic doctrine to believe that all of these sons of Imams became Jihadis without any knowledge of their fathers…



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.

Lying Liars Lying Yet Again About the Taliban

Obama and his Obamanistas have told so many outright lies about the Taliban over the years that we can now devote a lengthy article to it.

It started way back in 2008 when Obama was campaigning for the presidency. Back in those days he was saying that Iraq was a sideshow and that President Bush had “taken his eye off the ball.” According to Obama, the good war was in Afghanistan and he was going to concentrate on Afghanistan, where the Taliban were fighting US forces, when he got to be president.

That turned out to be campaign rhetoric. Sure, he pulled out of Iraq first, but, let’s face it: Obama never really went hard in Afghanistan and now he’s abandoning that fight, just as he abandoned the fight in Iraq.

Pretty soon into his administration, the Obamanistas started the meme that the Taliban weren’t actually our enemy. This predates the latest supposition that the Taliban aren’t terrorists by several years.

Two lies there. The Taliban are America’s enemy and they are also terrorists.

In December 2013, the Taliban published the autumn edition of their magazine, Azan.

This was the fourth issue of the magazine and was significant in that it called for Muslims in the West to launch attacks at home or fight on foreign battlefields, urging recruits to even leave behind their children or elderly parents:

If calling on Jihadis to launch attacks in the West doesn’t amount to terrorism, nothing does.

Such calls to Jihad and other propaganda are nothing new, so why was this particular publication worth mentioning here?

Because it had been released just a few days after the Obama administration was quoted saying that “the Taliban are not our enemies and we don’t want to fight them.”

Such statements about the Taliban were nothing new from the Obama administration. Vice President Joe Biden told Newsweek magazine the same thing almost exactly two years before:

Not only are these statements from the Obama administration disheartening because our troops have been fighting Taliban Jihadis for a decade, they also demonstrate a profound ignorance about Jihadist doctrine.

Jihadist doctrine does not regard nationalities or international borders as significant. Under their doctrine, Jihad is to be waged to make Allah’s law and religion supreme around the entire world. With their fall Azan magazine, the Taliban clearly demonstrate adherence to that doctrine with their call for Muslims in the West to launch attacks at home.

What’s more this is not something new from the Taliban. When they seized power in Afghanistan in 1996, they announced that Afghanistan was to be a launching pad for global Jihad and invited Jihadi fighters to come to their country. Jihadis from all over the Islamic world and even parts of the West and the Pacific Rim heeded that call and gravitated to the new Shariah-ruled outpost established by the Taliban regime.

Among those who relocated to Afghanistan was Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. We know the rest: Al Qaeda launched its attack on America from Afghanistan and the Taliban harbored Al Qaeda from the US when America sought to bring justice down on them.

How anyone can look at these facts and conclude that the Taliban are not our enemy is mind-boggling. The idea that the Taliban want to strictly limit their evil designs to Afghanistan is absurd. Yet that has been the policy of the Obama administration for years. It is a policy of lies.

And, yes, despite what the Obamanistas might claim, the Taliban are in fact terrorists.

Actually, we don’t believe that it makes sense to get too wrapped up in labeling them “terrorists.” Terrorism is a tactic, a method of warfare. The warfare that the Taliban–and the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Lashkar e Taiba, HAMAS, Al Shabaab, Boko Haram and a host of other groups–are waging is called Jihad. In Islamic law, Jihad is defined as warfare to establish the religion:

All of the groups mentioned above, including the Taliban, are Jihadis.

But it is still NOT true that the Taliban haven’t engaged in terrorism and they are not just “armed insurgents” like the bodyguards of lies in the Obama administration maintain.

Just 6 weeks ago, on December 16, the Taliban slaughtered 153 people–mostly young school children–in a terrorist attack on a school in Pakistan.

Taliban have also been involved in terrorist plots and activity on US soil:

• In May of 2011, six people, including two Imams at a Florida mosque, were indicted for providing material support to none other than the Taliban:

Irfan Khan of Florida, indicted for providing material support to the Taliban

• Faisal Shahzad, the Jihadist who attempted to detonate a Vehicle-Born Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) in New York’s Time Square in May 2010, was trained at a Taliban camp and, according to Attorney General Eric Holder himself, “the Pakistani Taliban was behind the attack…We know they helped facilitate it. We know they probably helped finance it and that he was working at their direction.”

• Najibullah Zazi, an Afghan-American who pled guilty in a plot to bomb the New York City subway in 2009, traveled to Afghanistan to join the Taliban when he was recruited by Al Qaeda to go back to America to attack targets in the US homeland. This shows the continued, close cooperation and collaboration between the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

Most recently, there are new reports from Leftist NBC News that hundreds of Taliban fighters have joined the Islamic State, which is becoming a greater factor in the southwest Asia region.

The Obamanistas try to make a distinction between the Taliban in Afghanistan and the Taliban in Pakistan. But not even NBC is subscribing to that nonsense. No one in the world outside the Obama administration believes that the Taliban in Pakistan and the Taliban in Afghanistan have nothing to do with each other.

The Taliban are committed Jihadists. As such, they are undoubtedly an enemy of America. They have killed and wounded thousands of US GIs in combat over the past decade and they have, from the time they originally seized power in Afghanistan to today, involved themselves with other Jihadist organizations from around the world, all of which are classified as “terrorist” organizations. Jihadis do not limit their scope based on political borders; their stated goals are global. To say that the Taliban are not the enemy of the United States or are not terrorists is to demonstrate a profound ignorance of the doctrinal basis for the threat from Jihad. When that ignorance comes from the executive branch of the US government, it can only be described as frightening.


Pakistan to Release Lashkar e Taiba Leader

In a move that can only illustrate the two-faced nature of Pakistan’s role in fighting terrorism, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the chief operational commander of the Jihadist terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba, who is believed to have masterminded the horrific 2008 Mumbai attack, is set to be released from detention in Pakistan.

For now Lakhvi is still in captivity on a new charge. But he has friends inside Pakistan’s Shariah-subordinated judiciary…–21922.html




And Again in Pakistan

What we have seen overnight in Pakistan with the slaughter of 120–mostly schoolchildren–at the hands of Taliban jihadists is not a new phenomenon.

In September 2004, Chechan jihadists slaughtered hundreds of schoolchildren in Beslan, Russia.

Two attacks, ten years apart, in two different countries. One an Islamic country in southwest Asia, the other the nation that bridges East and West.

There is one common thread: Islamic jihad. Both attacks were carried out by Muslim terrorists as acts of Jihad.

Both the Chechen jihadists and the Taliban jihadists base their existence and their actions on Islamic doctrine. Both have the same goal: the establishment of an Islamic state ruled by Shariah.

We ignore these facts at our peril, yet the West collectively continues to ignore the facts of jihad. In fact, we are in active denial about the doctrine that underpins the actions of our enemies.

As horrible as the attack overnight in Pakistan was, it is undeniable that this is truly a case of Frankenstein’s monster coming back to attack its creator.

The Taliban were formed and trained by the Pakistani secret intelligence service. And the Taliban could never have seized power in Afghanistan years ago without the support of the Taliban.

Now the Taliban have turned on the Pakistani military in a horrible way.

Finally, the Western denial about the doctrinal basis in Islam for our jihadist enemies continues to be outrageously dangerous.

It is only Tuesday. So far this week, jihadists have struck in Sydney, Australia and Peshawar, Pakistan. Don’t be shocked if this week ends as badly as it began.


More Details on Islamic State’s Growing Support Among Jihadi Groups in Pakistan

The Islamic State is gaining acceptance and accumulating followers among Jihadist groups from the Philippines to Nigeria.

But there is perhaps no Islamic State alliance more worrisome than its devotees in the Taliban.

Earlier this week, the Pakistani Taliban’s spokesman and 5 other Taliban chieftains in Pakistan pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. The six will remain members of the Taliban but are also now official emissaries of the Islamic State.

This development is sure to have serious consequences for security in Pakistan and Afghanistan (all six of these men are based near the Afghan border), bringing the type of violence and brutal Shariah oppression the Islamic State has brought to Syria and Iraq.

There are now worries that other senior members of the Taliban may declare allegiance to the Islamic State, including the Taliban’s overall leader in Pakistan, Maulana Fazlullah, who has previously voiced support for the organization.

The Islamic State now controls  vast areas of Iraq and Syria, has welcomed tens of thousands of Jihadis from around the globe into its ranks, and has become the wealthiest terrorist organization on record, with zakat donations from rich Salafist supporters in Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere, in addition to an income of up to $3 million per day from oil sold on the Middle East’s lucrative black market.

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.
