  • Hugh Fitzgerald: When Iran Fired Missiles at Kurds in Iraq, It Sent a Message — But to Whom?

    Jihad Watch ^ | 17 Jan, 2019 | Hough Fitzgerald
    The September 8 Iranian missile attack on Kurdish leaders meeting in Koya in northern Iraq was widely described in the press at the time as “a warning to Washington, Riyadh, and Jerusalem.” For it was taken as a demonstration of Iran’s military prowess. The attack included seven Fateh 11-B missiles, and apparently they hit their mark exactly, killing nearly a dozen high-ranking Iranian Kurds. Now, four months later, its significance can be more soberly evaluated...... The strike on Koya showed Iran’s enemies that it now had missiles than were both longer-range and more accurate than anything it had previously used....

    Federal authorities on Wednesday announced a terrorist case against a metro Atlanta resident accused of plotting to destroy the White House and other Washington D.C. government buildings. Hasher Jallal Taheb, of Cumming, was arrested in Gwinnett County and appeared briefly in court in downtown Atlanta in the case brought the FBI.
  • 'MUSLIM-FREE' GUN RANGE FIGHTS TO EXCLUDE MEMBERS OF TERROR-LINKED GROUP

    01/13/2019 6:55:53 PM PST · by E. Pluribus Unum · 38 replies
    Does an American gun range have the right to exclude Muslims who are members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations because of the group’s ties to terrorism? That question could soon have a legal answer as a Muslim has filed a discrimination suit against the owners of a gun range in Oklahoma. A federal court dismissed the discrimination complaint by Raja’ee Fatihah against Chad and Nicole Neal, owners of Save Yourself Survival and Tactical Gun Range in Oktaha, Oklahoma. But the judge set a trial to resolve conflicting accusations. Fatihah claims the range owners banned him because of his religion....

    BRUSSELS—A terrorism trial starting here on Thursday highlights the difficulties Europe’s courts and prisons face containing the spread of jihadist ideology behind bars. Mehdi Nemmouche, a 33-year-old Frenchman of Algerian origin, faces life in prison for allegedly shooting and killing four people at the Brussels Jewish Museum in May 2014. But once in prison, law-enforcement officials warn, terror suspects and convicts breed even more plots and spread their ideology to other inmates. European prisons are fertile recruiting ground for new terrorists despite efforts in France, Belgium and other European countries to isolate dangerous and radicalized suspects in dedicated wards to...

    [Jamie Glazov will be speaking at Beverly Hills Hotel on Feb. 6 about his new book: Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us. Register HERE. Order the book HERE.]Reprinted from WND.com. On December 11, a 29-year-old French citizen of Algerian descent launched an assault on shoppers in a busy Christmas market in Strasbourg, France, killing five and wounding 11 more with a revolver and knife before fleeing. Anyone who has kept up with the news for the last several years knew immediately what a massacre in a European Christmas market meant: Islamic terrorism. Sure enough, witnesses...

    Amazon has pulled more than a dozen products off its website after receiving complaints that the items are offensive to Muslims. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, asked the online retailer last week to remove the products, which included doormats, bath mats and other items imprinted with Islamic calligraphy, references to the Prophet Muhammad and scripture. The products, which were being sold by independent merchants on Amazon's website, are deemed offensive because they "would be stepped-on or otherwise disrespected by customers," CAIR said in a statement on Thursday. The following day,...

    Center for Security Policy ^ | 7 Jan 19 | Christopher Holton
    Border security is once again front and center on the American political scene as politicians in Washington posture in the debate over whether the U.S. should build some sort of border wall or fence on its porous southern border with Mexico. Whenever the Mexican border is at the top of the news, it serves as a reminder that our southern border is almost completely unsecure. And there have been some reminders mixed in over the years that Washington has ignored this problem about the potential for a terrorist threat from south of the border, such as James O’Keefe of Project...

    The man targeted, Jamal al-Badawi, is wanted in the United States for his role in the Cole attack on Oct. 12, 2000. He was indicted by a U.S. grand jury in 2003 and charged with 50 counts of various terrorism offenses, including murder of U.S. nationals and murder of U.S. military personnel. “U.S. forces are still assessing the results of the strike following a deliberate process to confirm his death,” the spokesman for U.S. Central Command, Navy Capt. William Urban, said Friday. President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday morning that the airstrike killed al-Badawi. “Our GREAT MILITARY has delivered justice for...

    “The war is on,” General Mike Flynn wrote three years ago.  And he went on to describe it in our best-selling book The Field of Fight. We face a working coalition that extends from North Korea and China to Russia, Iran, Syria, Cuba, Bolivia, Venezuela and Nicaragua.  We are under attack, not only from nation-states directly, but also from al Qaeda, Hezbollah, ISIS, and countless other terror groups. It’s a world war, and the enemy alliance is composed of both radical Islamist groups and nations—above all, Iran and its proxies--and radical secular tyrannies, like Putin’s.  While we have defeated them...

    It started out with an isolated case here and there. In 2005, Oriana Fallaci was put on trial in Italy for her anti-Islam book The Force of Reason. In 2010 and again in 2011, politician Geert Wilders was tried in the Netherlands for publicly criticizing Islam. In 2011, the Danish Lars Hedegaard was found guilty by a Danish court of hate speech for having, in the privacy of his own home, made reference to the frequency of incest rape in Muslim communities. (The verdict was later reversed by the Danish Supreme Court.) Also in 2011, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was tried...

    Alexandra Pelosi, daughter of House Minority Leader and soon-to-be Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), had some blunt words to describe her mother when she was asked about her on CNN’s “New Day” Wednesday morning. “She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding,” Pelosi said of her mother. “That’s all you need to know about her.” “No one ever won betting against Nancy Pelosi. She’s persevered,” she added. “You gotta give her credit. No matter what you think about her, you have to give her credit because, think about it, think about all of those presidents she’s endured....

    The police arrested five terrorism suspects on Saturday. In the morning, four were arrested in Rotterdam. A fifth during the day. Where (exactly) the arrests were made has not been reported. They are suspected of involvement in the preparation of a terrorist crime. Immediately after the arrests in the morning, the locations where the detentions were made were searched. Four of the arrested men are between 20 and 30 years old and come from non-Western countries. Nothing further is known about the fifth. The investigation will continue in the coming days, the police reported. “The emphasis is on further research...

    A week before Christmas two young ladies from Scandinavia vacationing in Morocco - Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway - were brutally stabbed and decapitated and then had the final moments of their lives uploaded as triumphal snuff videos to Facebook, Twitter, 4Chan and Reddit, the Four Horsemen of the Social-Media Apocalypse. Fortunately, if you were thinking of getting a little nervous about your next holiday in the Maghreb, this bloody double-murder was the work of merely another "lone wolf": In a press conference in Rabat yesterday, police and domestic intelligence spokesman Boubker Sabik...

    A couple of days ago a “radical” mosque in Berlin was raided by the police. The following news report gives a brief account of that raid. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that the As-Sahaba Mosque was raided just after a ZDF investigative report aired on television. ZDF sent undercover reporters into various mosques to listen to what was preached in them, and record the speakers. The video below is the first half of that report. The makers of the documentary repeatedly point out that these hate preachers and their mosques are monitored by the security authorities, but no action...

    An Irish lecturer was stabbed to death by a student outside the Paris university where he taught on Wednesday for allegedly insulting the prophet Mohammed by displaying a drawing of him during class. John Dowling, 66, was speaking with a student, identified by authorities only as Ali R., following a lecture when the 37-year old student fatally stabbed him 13 times in the throat and chest. The suspect, who is set to be indicted for murder on Friday, told the authorities that, while he killed Dowling to defend his faith against a perceived slight, he has also long maintained a...

    The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office has issued a dozen identically worded advisories for European nations. The nations for which the advisory was issued are Poland, Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, and France. The advisory text reads: “May be increased security in place over Christmas & New Year period, including at Christmas markets & other major events that might attract large crowds; remain vigilant & follow advice of local authorities” It’s worth mentioning that there is no reference whatsoever to what has caused this advisory to be issued. The answer of course is Islamic...

    The tagline “keep Portland weird” never really seems to go out of style. The Oregon city’s mayor will shortly be rolling out a new program designed to expand the city’s police force. Given all the Antifa violence they’re dealing with, that sounds like a good idea. But these new officers aren’t exactly cops. They’re Public Safety Support Specialists or PS3s, and they won’t be carrying firearms or responding to emergency calls. So what exactly are they going to be doing?
