    Sunday, June 02, 2013 Islam is the Problem Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog On a mild London afternoon, two Muslims rammed a car into a British soldier returning to the barracks after working at the Tower of London. They shouted Allah Akbar and hacked and slashed at his body in an attempt to behead him. By the time they were done, his body could only be identified through dental records. Shortly afterward, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that “there is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act”. London Mayor Boris Johnson added, “It...

    An embattled former Obama administration appointee -- who was part of a group of attorneys accused of being terrorist sympathizers for defending "enemy combatants" -- has been hired for a post at the US Attorney's Office in Brooklyn, officials confirmed today. Tali Farhadian was one of several private attorneys who created a rift between Republicans last spring when the Obama Administration assigned them to posts within the Justice Department. Although Farhadian was handling unrelated matters in Attorney General Eric Holder's office, a political watchdog group accused Obama of overloading the agency with officials sympathetic to enemy combatants. Their appointments even...

    Janet Jackson and her fiancé Wissam Al Mana are reportedly planning to get married in Doha, Qatar in 2013. The couple hope to tie the knot in Doha where the billionaire was born and are making arrangements for the ceremony to take place in 2013. Janet and Wissam will be wedded in a Muslim ceremony. A renown Turkish author, Adnan Oktar (aka Harun Yahya), is also making the claim that the 46-year-old Janet Jackson has converted to Islam — as did her brother, Michael Jackson — and is choosing to keep her new religion a secret from her fans. According...

    If Barack Obama had any guts, he’d have expelled this guy–this Muslim diplomat who thinks threatening shoe bombs and lighting fires is funny (and a way to test our response and out the Federal Air Marshals on the plane). But he doesn’t have the guts. And don’t think that President Bush–whose Islamo-pandering was not as overt but just as deep, nauseating, and harmful–would have the guts either. Bush’s inept, Muslim butt-kissing National Security Advisor Fran Townsend joined the chorus of the stupid and described last night’s incident as a “misunderstanding.” She sounded like Janet Napolitano when she said, “The system...

    "A Qatari diplomat who caused a bomb scare after sneaking a smoke in an airplane bathroom was traveling for a consular visit to see an imprisoned al-Qaida agent. A State Department official and another person close to the matter say Mohammed Al-Madadi was going to meet Ali Al-Marri for an official visit. Consular officials frequently visit foreigners held in the United States to make sure they are being treated well."

    Peoria, Ill. - A federal judge sentenced an Al Qaeda "sleeper" agent to eight years in prison Thursday -- about half the time prosecutors had requested -- because the agent received what the judge called "unacceptable" treatment in a U.S. Navy brig. U.S. District Judge Michael Mihm could have sentenced Ali Marri to as much as 15 years. Prosecutors had endorsed that, presenting testimony that he remained a threat. But Mihm handed down the lighter sentence of eight years and four months in consideration of what he called "very severe" conditions under which Marri was kept during the almost six...

But Naji al-Marri (NAH'-jee ahl-MAR'-ee) says federal authorities have robbed 43-year-old Ali al-Marri (AH'-lee ahl-MAR'-ee) of more than seven years of his life.

    Washington Post ^ | Monday, May 4, 2009 | By Peter Finn and Carrie Johnson
    Nearly six years ago, President George W. Bush declared Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri an enemy combatant and had him swept out of federal court and into a U.S. Navy brig so he could be interrogated without the legal protections afforded by the criminal justice system. Bush said the Qatari national, arrested as a material witness in Illinois in December 2001, possessed critical intelligence that "would aid U.S. efforts to prevent attacks by al-Qaeda on the United States." In an agreement Marri entered Thursday in Peoria, Ill., he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide material support to al-Qaeda and admitted to...

    U.S. Wary Of Small Boat Terrorism As boating season approaches, the Bush administration wants to enlist America's 80 million recreational boaters to help reduce the chances that a small boat could deliver a nuclear or radiological bomb somewhere along the 95,000 miles of U.S. coastline and inland waterways. According to an April 23 intelligence assessment obtained by The Associated Press, "The use of a small boat as a weapon is likely to remain al Qaeda's weapon of choice in the maritime environment, given its ease in arming and deploying, low cost, and record of success." While the United States...

    June 24— The Qatari man designated an enemy combatant by the Bush administration was planning another Sept. 11 attack, sources told ABCNEWS. Ali Saleh Kahlah Al-Marri, 37, was deemed an enemy combatant by the Bush administration on Monday after officials said he was positively identified by an al Qaeda detainee as being part of a planned second wave of terror attacks on the United States. Government officials said they believed al Qaeda's top leadership sent Al-Marri to the United States to coordinate a new round of attacks. "Al-Marri was sent to the United States as a facilitator for other al...

    Arab states should make a gesture toward Israel after its pullout from Gaza Strip, Qatar's foreign minister said. Hailing the Israeli withdrawal, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani stated Arab nations should respond. "I salute this step by Israel," he said in a speech Wednesday at the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations. "But it is very important that there be a clear vision after this step." "Arab countries must take a step toward Israel through an international meeting or a meeting between Arab states and Israel and the co-sponsors of peace, particularly the United States, in an...

    AL-UDEID AIR BASE, Qatar: The sign simply reads “Army camp,” giving little hint that just a mile away across the baking desert sands a $1.4 billion American air force base is under construction, the potential nerve center for a US-led attack against Iraq. The tiny oil- and gas-rich emirate has proven to be a key Arab ally for Washington as US President George W. Bush mobilizes international support to overthrow the regime of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Saudi Arabia, home to the largest US air base in the Gulf, initially balked at the prospect of the US directing its campaign...

    RIYADH --A Saudi newspaper Monday lashed out at Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem bin Jabr al-Thani, calling him a "dwarf" and accusing him of openly dealing with Israel. "Hamad bin Jassem has chosen the (wrong) door to history, the one shunned by honest people dedicated to their (Arab) nation," ***Al-Watan*** daily said in a hard-hitting editorial. "The damage and abuses of the man have reached an unacceptable level ... We felt it was our duty to address him so he may understand ... We hope he does," the daily said. The criticism comes one day after Sheikh Hamad...
