    The FBI also focuses on education for different catalysts for radicalization designed to help the public increase awareness of radicalization.

    A White House spokesman stated Sunday that President Donald Trump explicitly condemns all extremist groups, including white supremacists and neo-Nazis. “The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred and of course that includes white Supremacists, KKK, neo-nazi and all extremist groups,” a White House spokesman said Sunday. “He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.”

    The holdover official responsible for implementing former President Barack Obama’s failed “Countering Violent Extremism” policy at the Department of Homeland Security finally resigned just before DHS Secretary John Kelly departed for the White House. George Selim headed the now-defunct CVE program which tried to offer federal support and legal autonomy to Islamic political groups if they redirected Islamic immigrants and youths away from Islamic militancy and jihad. His resignation spotlighted Kelly’s decision to replace Obama’s failed policy with more direct government involvement in Islamic communities. Kelly may use his new White House job to make his anti-jihad strategy a government-wide...

    Wikipedia - Oklahoma City Murray Building Bombing ^ | 15 July 2017 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    The point of this note is to demonstrate the irresponsibility of the media and the hypocrisy of muslims and muslim organizations. After the Murray building bombing, the media in their normal irresponsible fashion put out stories without substantiation that "Middle Eastern" groups may be have been responsible for the bombing. As a result, individuals went after muslims in this country. The muslims understandbly complained: In the case of the Oklahoma City Bombing, Hamzi Moghrabi, chairman of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, blamed the media for the attacks on Muslims and Arabs that took place just days after the bombing.Now, the media...

    Friday, March 03, 2017 How to Fake an Islamophobia Crisis Posted by Daniel Greenfield 0 Comments Look out! It’s another fake Islamophobia crisis. “Huge Growth in Anti-Muslim Hate Groups During 2016: SPLC Report,” wails NBC News. “Watchdog: Number of anti-Muslim hate groups tripled since 2015,” FOX News bleats. ABC News vomits up this word salad. “Trump cited in report finding increase in US hate groups for 2nd year in a row.” The SPLC stands for the Southern Poverty Law Center: an organization with slightly less credibility than Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, and without the academic degree...

    Fox News Insider ^ | June 18, 2017
    Experts on extremism are increasingly shifting their focus from right-wing extremism to what they see as a rise of violence on the left, according to a new report. "The past few months have seen enough of a rise in politically motivated violence from the far left that monitors of right-wing extremism have begun shifting their focus, and sounding the alarm," a report on Vice.com said. Liberal violence has seen an uptick since President Trump was elected. The subject of left-wing violence reared its head last week after a Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on congressional Republicans playing baseball last Wednesday,...

    Zac Goldsmith came in for a fair amount of criticism yesterday after writing a piece in the Mail on Sunday that, among other things, pointed out that Sadiq Khan criticised Labour’s decision to suspend Ken Livingstone in 2006 when he compared a Jewish Evening Standard journalist to a Nazi concentration camp guard. Reviewing the papers on Marr, Owen Jones called it ‘another example’ of a ‘poisonous’ and ‘disgraceful’ campaign that had tried to brand Khan as an extremist simply because he’s a Muslim. He called it ‘an attempt to tap into anti-Muslim prejudice’ and urged Conservatives to tackle Islamophobia as...

    (CNSNews.com) – The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an organization that has been praised by Obama’s Justice Department for combating “domestic extremism” and designates groups on a “Hate Map” including some controversial listings of conservative groups, reacted Wednesday to the news of President-elect Donald Trump’s win calling it a “new reality.” “Today, we’re facing a new reality – a president-elect who has denigrated people because of their race, their religion, their ethnicity, their gender, and more,” SPLC President Richard Cohen wrote. “Our mission is to hold Donald Trump to what he is saying now – that he will be a...

    The internet is abuzz this week with new revelations about the towering edifice of hypocrisy and left-wing censorship being built by the controllers of Twitter. Exactly four weeks ago, Twitter permanently banned gay conservative commentator and humorist Milo Yiannopoulos from the platform, claiming that he incited abuse of comic actress Leslie Jones after, get this, she reacted harshly to his critical review of her performance in the new “Ghostbusters” film. The exchange was fairly innocuous, with Jones acting peeved and Milo displaying the rapier wit of a sharp stand-up comedian, and the final straw came when Jones blocked him, and...

    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The threat of violence by people inspired by foreign extremists invokes fear in a majority of young Americans across racial groups. But for young people of color, particularly African-Americans, that fear is matched or surpassed by worries about violence from white extremists. A new GenForward poll of Americans age 18-30 shows widespread anxiety among young people about attacks from both inside and outside the United States.

    Micah Xavier Johnson, who killed five police officers in Dallas, was increasingly drawn to black nationalist ideology and attended several meetings of the People’s New Black Panther Party. Gavin Eugene Long, who killed three officers in Baton Rouge, said he belonged to the Washitaw Nation, an obscure black nationalist group that claims ownership to the huge swath of the United States obtained in the Louisiana Purchase on the belief that they are descended from a U.S. indigenous group. The People’s New Black Panther Party and the Washitaw Nation have vastly different ideologies and no direct ties to each other, but...

    The nature of terrorism, including the increased radicalization of individuals through social media, has changed over the last decade and violent extremism can only be eradicated by including preventive measures, the United Nations chief said in a report to the 193-member General Assembly. Ban Ki-moon’s study calls on member states to employ conflict resolution, empower youth, develop educational opportunities and embrace human rights in the battle against terrorism. The report is part of the General Assembly’s two-year review that ends Friday of the U.N.’s 10-year-old global counter-terrorism strategy. “We need to pay more attention to why individuals are attracted to...

    The United Nations Security Council wants a global "framework" for censoring the Internet, as well as for using government propaganda to "counter" what its apparatchiks call "online propaganda," "hateful ideologies," and "digital terrorism." To that end, the UN Security Council this week ordered the UN "Counter-Terrorism Committee" — yes, that is a real bureaucracy — to draw up a plan by next year. From the Obama administration to the brutal Communist Chinese regime, everybody agreed that it was time for a UN-led crackdown on freedom of speech and thought online — all under the guise of fighting the transparently bogus...

    Society is undergoing a change of mind about the way religion and people of faith intersect with public life. That is, there are intensifying perceptions that faith is at the root of a vast number of societal ills. Though it remains the nation’s most dominant religion, Christianity faces significant headwind in the court of public opinion. The decades-old trend that Christianity is irrelevant is increasingly giving way to the notion that Christianity is bad for society. A new major study conducted by Barna Group, and explored in the new book Good Faith, co-authored by Barna president David Kinnaman, examines society’s...

    >Are you a religious extremist? For years, world leaders have been endlessly proclaiming that we need to eradicate “extremism”, but what actually is “extremism”? Many would point to the ISIS jihadists over in the Middle East that are beheading people that don’t agree with them as examples of religious extremists, and I think that very few people would argue with that. But our politicians (especially the liberal ones) rarely use the term “Islamic terrorists” anymore. Instead, they tend to use the term “religious extremists”, and that has a much, much broader connotation. In fact, if you are a Bible-believing Christian,...

    A Mosque as Extremist MegaphoneEven in leading Islamic institutions like Al Aqsa in Jerusalem, praising Islamist radicalism is common.President Obama on Wednesday will visit a U.S. mosque for the first time in his presidency. According to the White House, during this visit he will "celebrate the contributions Muslim Americans make to our nation and reaffirm the importance of religious freedom to our way of life." Over the past two years, in the president's efforts to counter violent extremism, he has emphasized the responsibility of Muslim "scholars and clerics" to help ensure that mosques are not used as a platform...

    A community advocate who spends his days helping Somali families and a youth soccer coach who works to keep kids off the street are among the people lining up for a crack at federal and private funds aimed at stopping terror recruiting. Friday was the deadline for applicants to request roughly $400,000 in money being administered by a nonprofit entity as part of Minnesota's efforts to stamp out violent extremism. The program is part of a three-city pilot project, which includes Boston and Los Angeles, launched more than a year ago by the Obama administration. Minneapolis' program, called Building Community...

The White House background document accompanying the announcement does contain any specific reference to the types of "violent extremism" the...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations building in D.C. is currently under evacuation, after the office received an envelope filled with a suspicious substance. "We're all outside the building," says Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR's National Communications Director. The only exception: the several staffers who remain quarantined inside the building on New Jersey Avenue SE. D.C. Fire has responded to the scene with hazmat gear. "We receive threats on almost a daily basis, so it's nothing new for us," says Hooper. "But a suspicious substance—that's new. We don't normally publicize threats to ourselves but when you have to evacuate, it's a little different."
