Turkey Backs Pakistan in Kashmir Conflict

posted by Christopher W. Holton

Turkey has wasted no time in backing Pakistan in the conflict over Kashmir, despite the fact that the violence began with a terrorist attack launched from inside Pakistan in which 40 Indian troops were killed.

This is just the latest sign that Recep Erdogan of Turkey seeks to recreate the Ottoman Empire as a modern-day seat of a caliphate.

Turkey has often “looked the other way” as jihadists transited through its territory and even used it as a launching pad. Erdogan’s main problem with the Islamic State was that it threatened his desire to have Turkey re-emerge as the seat of the caliphate when it declared itself a caliphate…

Tensions are once again high between India and Pakistan. Earlier today, the Indian air force struck targets in Pakistan, reportedly resulting in 300 deaths. The target was a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) camp. This was the first air strike by India on Pakistani territory since the 1971 war between the two nations…

Jaish-e-Mohammed is a Pakistani jihadist organization that has carried out terrorist attacks in Kashmir since 2000.

A Hindu Perspective on Islamic Jihad

posted by Christopher W. Holton

Hindus have a unique perspective on the threat from Islamic jihad in both its violent and civilizational forms.

Many Christians and Jews are not aware that Hindus have been the victims of Jihadist genocide on a scale greater than just about any other religious group (other than, ironically, Muslims).

The web site Indiafacts has published an interesting perspective on the conflict between India and Pakistan, principally through a religious prism. It is well worth reading. Here are excerpts and a link to the article…

The Pakistan Mentality: Why it is dangerous and why it must be crushed

Why are Hindus hated? Because for over 14 centuries India resisted efforts to pass through Islam’s digestive tract and become a distant memory. The price of this struggle was colossal – hundreds of millions of Hindus were killed, all the ancient Indian universities were razed and hundreds of thousands of temples were demolished.

The Pakistan mentality involves:

• An implacable hatred of Hindus (as well as the less numerical groups such as Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, atheists and Christians).
• The defining belief that India is an ex-Islamic country that needs to be forcibly or demographically returned to Muslim control.
• Unwillingness to accept India as a Hindu majority country.
• Willingness to destroy themselves if in the bargain they can destroy India or at least cause it major damage.

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.

The Plot Thickens: Did the San Bernardino Cleric Lie?

Roshan Zamir Abbassi

Roshan Zamir Abbassi

posted by Christopher W. Holton

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

Headley-graphic_2653835g

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:

http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/terror-in-mumbai/

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.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/david-headley/

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

posted by Christopher W. Holton

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…

pew-poll-63-mil-to-287-million-isis-supporters-in-just-11-countries

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

By Christopher Holton

Two Taliban Jihadis getting ready to behead a Polish hostage. Note the flag in the background. If you can't tell the difference between this setting and those of EVERY OTHER JIHADIST organization in the world, then you aren't qualified to work for President Obama

Two Taliban Jihadis getting ready to behead a Polish hostage. Note the flag in the background. If you can’t tell the difference between this setting and those of EVERY OTHER JIHADIST organization in the world, then you aren’t qualified to work for President Obama

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:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/al-qaeda/10503925/Taliban-magazine-urges-jihad-and-profiles-the-Honda-125.html

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.”

http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2013/11/27/karzai-will-sign-agreement-with-u-s-says-obama-administration-claimed-taliban-not-our-enemy/

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:

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/12/vp-biden-says-that-the-taliban-per-se-is-not-our-enemy/

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:

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

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:

• 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.

http://www.investigativeproject.org/case/345

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.

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/isis-pakistan-afghanistan-taliban-fighters-sign-commanders-say-n296707

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.
