Title: The Islamic Apocalypse!!
Post by: Mark on June 07, 2011, 05:27:54 am
The Islamic Antichrist

In "The Islamic Antichrist," Joel Richardson breaks new ground with this devastating account of the possible connection between the Biblical Antichrist and the Islamic Mahdi. The Bible predicts that in the last days a charismatic leader will establish a global following in the name of peace. The Quran also predicts that a man will rise up to lead the nations, pledging to usher in an era of peace. The man in the Quran is called the Mahdi, or Islam's savior. However, the man in the Bible is the Antichrist. Could it be possible that they are one and the same person?

Richardson's stunning research and analysis suggest that it is. In "The Islamic Antichrist," he exposes Western readers to the traditions of Islam and predicts that the end times may not be that far away. His book will stun readers who are unaware of the similarities between the Antichrist and the 'Islamic Jesus.'

Chapter titles include “Islamic Eschatology,” “The Sacred Texts of Islam,” “Comparing the Biblical Antichrist and the Mahdi,” “The Dark Nature of Muhammad’s Revelations,” “How Should we Respond,” and “Preparing for Martyrdom.”

The Emergent Church is pushing for unity with Islam(Warren and Hybels have gone to 100s of Islamic conferences to get unity with them)

The last Pope and current Pope are doing the same.

There's this "Chrislam" movement going on in a growing number of churches today

You had good 'ole Billy Graham proclaiming at the 9/11 funeral after the attacks how Muslims "are his friends".

Most of the "truth" movement is blaming the "evil Israeli Zionists" for the "persecution of Muslims".

Or how about that movie "V for Vendetta", where Guy Fawkes was portrayed as a patriot hero, and those that had the Qu'ran in their homes were the ones taken away and killed?

Why is Hollywood warming up to Islam?

We can go on and on - but there just seems to be WAY too much Islam-sympathy today. Like I explained in another thread, there's this LIE in today's modern day church how Christians and Muslims worship the same God b/c supposedly they come from the same God of Abraham lineage(although they keep overlooking the fact that Islam was created in *600 AD*).

BTW - doesn't anyone find it odd how Muslims are NOT the ones saying "We need to find common ground with Christians"? ::)

I was impressed that he stressed the importance of the final anti-christ being superficially a man of peace. I was thinking about this today and wondered about all the previous anti-christ figures eg Nero Hitler etc have been men of war. I was thinking that the spirit of the anti-christ is a demon...

12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

So will the anti-christ be a demonised man or a spirit?
Just musings-i dont think its clear whether the treaty will be with the reformed Roman union or the Islamic world i tend to think the former (ie a european anti-christ) but it could go either way...Its difficult to read the Daniel prophesy as Islam as it was not around.

Exactly - also that "V for Vendetta" movie portrayed the "persecuted" as homosexuals(remember the scene where 2 lesbian lovers got hauled off in the police state) and owners of Qu'rans(that Letterman-like talk show host). Overall, that movie was just COMPLETELY backwards when they tried to portray what government tyranny is. However, even the "conservatives" in the MSM like Joe Scarborough completely missed the mark when they tried to critique this so-called "liberal-biased" movie(Scarborough himself is an RC, so no surprise here).

Title: Imam Mahdi Rising: What Iran is Teaching Their Population
Post by: Psalm 51:17 on March 09, 2012, 01:48:26 pm

“People will rise from the East, preparing the way for the re-appearance of the Imam Mahdi.”  - quoted from an Iranian video proclaiming the imminent appearance of the Muslim Savior, who is the known to many American theologians as the Christian Antichrist.

Was the 2011 “Arab Spring” a prophesied spiritual sign which American Christians should study? I have written about certain Mideastern predictions of their coming “last Imam”, the 12th Mecca Imam or the Imam Mahdi, several times during the last few years. Today I am giving readers an update in advance of 2012.

The Iranian government is presently engaged in a massive public education effort to inform their citizens and those of neighboring Muslim states that the rise of the Imam Mahdi, their “last Muslim savior” is imminent. They are also teaching their people that when the Imam Mahdi arrives on the world scene, he will make Iraq the seat of his world government, specifically the town of Kufa, or Al-Kufah. This sleepy village is south of Baghdad [ see map].


At the end of this essay I have posted two videos which are English translations of the Iranian propaganda machine’s present efforts to prepare their people for the arrival of the Imam Mahdi and for war. There is not a doubt in my mind that when of if US forces withdraw from Iraq, that Iran will quickly sweep in and begin anew their own conquest of the region, based on what’s being set forth in these two videos which I have posted below at the end of this report.

The Iranian people see the rise of the Imam Mahdi as a time heralding the arrival of a global government of ‘peace, prosperity and justice’. [ See the highlighted quote in this Iranian news article: http://worldmeets.us/kayhan000061.shtml#axzz1evPi8sCn  ]

An Islamic Antichrist?

Something amazing has happened in the last three decades. The Palestinian cause in the Middle East has widened out into a full-scale Islamic revolution. The rapid expansion of Islamic power has directed new speculation about the events that will unfold during the Tribulation. Specifically, many are now suggesting that the Antichrist will arise out of the Islamic world.

Persuasive books and other publications are now making the case for this development. The Islamic Antichrist, by Joel Richardson and God’s War on Terror, by the former Muslim Walid Shoebat have both linked Mystery Babylon with latter-day Islam. Certainly, Islam has an “Antichrist Spirit.” But can it really be true that the Antichrist will arise from the Islamic culture?

Really, the question boils down to this: Will he arise from Islam society, or as the Bible has been interpreted for centuries, does he come from the West? There are at least two strong arguments in favor of his Western origin. First, the power of Islam is broken in a war at the beginning of the Tribulation. Second, the Bible gives the genealogy of the Antichrist that strongly points to his Graeco-Roman origin.

Let’s begin by briefly reviewing recent Mideast history, then compare these events with Scripture.

After years of ineffectual struggle, the current Arab uprising first gained real momentum in Tunis when, in January, 2011, longtime President Ben Ali was overthrown, leading to new elections for the beleaguered and impoverished people. Their success, followed by the ensuing Libyan revolt, heralded what the Western press came to call “The Arab Spring.” When the radicals saw their propaganda successfully taking hold, they were spurred on to new revolts in Egypt and Syria.

Out of these developments, we witnessed the coalescing of a new power, as the Islamic Brotherhood declared itself the reigning Arab leadership. Libya’s Moammar Khadaffi was hunted down and killed. Egypt’s three-decade dictator Hosni Mubarak was deposed and put on trial for crimes against the people.

Currently, the Brotherhood is exploiting a growing regional volatility of their own making, to create a new international power. Their professed objective is the realization of an obsessive dream – the establishment of a grand international caliphate. The last such centralized Islamic rule came to an end with the downfall of the Ottoman Empire around the time of World War One. It was then replaced by the Republic of Turkey.

Since that time, many Arabs have expressed their dream that a new caliphate would rise, bringing the Mideast to a golden age of strength and wealth. It threatens to expand beyond any national boundary, realizing the long-held goal of an Islamic caliphate that will cover the region from the British Isles to India’s western border and southward into Africa.

Recent History

Following the 1973 Yom Kippur war, the Egyptians reluctantly forged a peace treaty with Israel. It came into effect in 1979 and was commonly referred to as the Carter-Sadat Treaty. It demilitarized the Sinai Penninsula and lasted for thirty years, until 2011, with the end of the Mubarak era.

From its beginning, this peace treaty was routinely mocked by other Arab states, and particularly by Yasser Arafat, who said it would never last. Arafat founded the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) with the idea of undoing everything Israel had done since forming their nation in1948.

Ironically, the present Arab uprising can be dated back to 1983, when Arafat was forced to move PLO headquarters to Tunisia, following the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Before that, he had established Al Fatah, and its military arm, Al Assifa, which grew to become the central authority of the Islamic resistance.

By 1988 Arafat, in a major tactical change, had given up his terrorist cause and freely spoke of Israel’s right to exist. A 1993 agreement with the PLO expressed Israel’s legitimate presence alongside a self-ruling Palestinian Jericho and Gaza Strip. The wily old founder of Al Fatah was then made president of the Palestinian Authority (PA). In 1995 and 1996, another agreement brought self-rule in all Arab cities on the West Bank of the Jordan River.

A more-or-less lasting peace in the region ensued until September of 2000, when Arafat’s forces were accused of attacking Israelis once again. He died in 2004, leaving a PLO divided between Fatah and the Islamic Brotherhood’s Palestinian terrorist arm, Hamas. For the last decade there has been a steadily deteriorating relationship between the PA and Israel. Ironically, when Arafat died, the process of Israel’s unilateral disengagement from Gaza was begun, to be completed in September, 2005. Always eager for peace, the Israelis had given up Gaza to Hamas as a gesture of good will. But it wasn’t long until internecine strife between Hamas and Fatah erupted into street fighting. The struggle for the “liberation” of Gaza rages to this day.

But Israel’s olive branch resulted only in greater hostility. It played right into the hands of Hamas, which has never concealed the fact that it’s prime desire is to see Israel annihilated. Its continual firing of rockets into Israel provided the background music for the arming of Hezbollah in Lebanon. It fueled the passions of the Iranians, who continually call for the death of the “little Satan” (Israel) and the “great Satan” (the USA).

It encouraged the Islamic Brotherhood, spurring them onward toward the great revolution that will bring the grand caliphate and their mahdi (messiah figure), who will convert the world to Islam. They now believe he is on the verge of appearing, but they disagree on how he will take control.

Who Will Lead?

The two major factions of Islam – Sunnis and Shiites – disagree on how their mahdi will rule. The Sunnis believe that the caliph who will someday head their government, should be elected by Islamic governmental representatives.

On the other hand, Shiite Muslims believe that the caliph will be chosen by Allah from among the direct offspring of Mohammed. The most radical Shiites, called the Twelvers, believe that the supernatural being, a messianic figure they call the Imam Mahdi, will personally come to present himself as leader, arising from a subterranean hiding place, where he has resided for the past few centuries.

Muslim leaders are quite vocal about his coming. Their outspoken bravado seems to have persuaded some in the West that his arrival will fulfill the biblical qualifications for the Antichrist.

Many Christians have begun to say that it is this mysterious figure, regardless of his method of arrival, who will rise to power, fulfilling the Bible’s description of the one who comes to deceive the Jews into believing that he is their true Messiah:

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (II Thess. 2:3,4).

The sense that Islam is becoming stronger and more unified … that its vaunted period of rule has arrived, has caused many to assume that they will realize their goal. Certainly, Islamic leaders of the Middle East believe this. But it also seems that their belief is beginning to convince Western society … and even Christians!

Islam to be Destroyed

And this, in spite of the fact that Bible prophecy specifically calls for an unprecedented destruction of Islam in a coming great war. This war will begin in the Mideast and spread to the entire world. In breathtaking fashion, Israel will rise to victory as the war comes to an end. What then? Will the Jews accept an Islamic ruler from among the rag-tag survivors of the great war? That would be very doubtful, indeed. Remember, Scripture says that they will accept him as their long-awaited Messiah … but a Moslem?

This thought requires perspective: We must never forget that it is the recent publicity about the Twelvers’ belief in the coming Imam Mahdi that has most likely set in motion the speculation about an Islamic Antichrist.

This assumes that Islam will rise to a victorious position in the region. From the strictly secular point of view, there is now the growing impression that the Islamic juggernaut has reached the point of global prominence. It is infiltrating Europe and the Americas. It regularly boasts that it will control the world in a generation. But the Bible says otherwise.
The Coming War

For example, many have begun to point to Psalm 83 as a prophecy of Israel’s latter-day enemies. Eleven tribes of the Middle East are shown just as we see them today. This collection of enemies is a composite of all who have ever opposed Israel:

“They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah” (Psalm 83:4-8).

And what happens to these Islamic offspring of all evil? They are summarily wiped out:

“O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD” (Psalm 83:13-16).

This Psalm constitutes a prophecy, stating both the goal of Israel’s enemies, and their final fate. These are the peoples that comprise today’s Islamic Brotherhood, defeated in the fires of war.

And where else do we see them mentioned? The prophet Zechariah speaks of the precise situation we find today:

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God. In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem” (Zech. 12:2-6).

Gog’s Hapless Invasion

To make the point once more, we have only to look at Ezekiel 38 and 39, in which an alliance of Russia, Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Turkey, Eastern Europe and others combine to invade Israel. This is the great northern invasion of Gog of the land of Magog, dragged into the fray by the very zealots of the Islamic Brotherhood who are today crying for Israel’s blood. “And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth…” (Ezekiel 38:4).

And what happens to Gog and these mighty warriors? Observe:

“And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD” (Ezekiel 39:3-6).

They are utterly destroyed in a crushing defeat that dwarfs anything ever seen in past wars. Here, we see that the fires of war blow back on Magog and the “isles” (the continents), showing that though it started in the Mideast it spreads to the entire world. The cleanup from this war stretches over a seven year period:

“Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken. And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamon-gog” (Ezekiel 39:8-11).

Many writers have already pointed out that Israel will bury the invaders’ bodies in the territory of Moab and Ammon, east of the Dead Sea. It takes them seven years to accomplish this feat, ruling out the possibility that the war takes place during the Tribulation, since Israel will be fleeing for her life during the second half of the Tribulation. The initial attack must take place far ahead of the seven-year period.

And where is the Imam Mahdi during this legendary rout? Has he emerged from the Twelvers’ subterranean well-shaft? If so, he witnessed only defeat. Is he elected to power by the sheikhs? If so, he has no land to rule.

Following this amazing victory, Israel will rise to power, led by a savior-figure who falsely claims to be their Messiah. And he will provide proof, standing up in a new temple and declaring himself to be a god. But certainly, he won’t be Islamic. At this time, when the smoke of battle still hangs heavy in the air, with millions of Moslems lying dead on the battlefield, would he claim to be the great Mahdi? No, he would certainly claim to be the Jew’s Messiah. Furthermore, he confirms a covenant with Israel’s leaders, insuring temple sacrifices and offerings, a promise which he soon rescinds:

“And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate” (Daniel 9:26,27).

It is the signing of this false covenant that marks the precise beginning of the Tribulation.

Furthermore, Daniel gives us Antichrist’s genealogy, saying that this “prince” (the Antichrist) will be descended from the Flavian Dynasty of Vespasian and Titus. They are, after all, as Daniel puts it, “the people … who destroy the city and the sanctuary.”

Who were the Flavians? They were the Roman dictators who waged wars against the Jews during the close of the first century. Furthermore, they are well known to have intermarried with members of the Herodian dynasty. This intertwining began about 36 BC, when Caesar Augustus thrust the Edomite Herod the Great upon the Jews, insulting them by giving him the offensive title, “King of the Jews.”

Additionally, the Flavian bloodline included the Greek Seleucids, descending from Antiochus IV Ephiphanes, himself. In 167 BC, this evil character had captured the Jewish temple and placed a statue of himself in the Holy of Holies, dressed as Zeus. He is the foremost type of the Antichrist.

These three bloodlines … Herodian, Seleucid and Roman … converge in the Flavian dynasty. In the second century AD and following, the descendants of these royals became the leaders of the Holy Roman Empire.

J.R. Church’s two books, Guardians of the Grail and Bloodline of the Antichrist are both dedicated to documenting this clearcut, singular truth.

Indeed, the entire eleventh chapter of Daniel is dedicated to tracing the Antichrist’s descent from Alexander the Great, through the Greek Seleucids and Antiochus IV Epiphanes, all the way down to the royal house of Rome and finally, Antichrist himself.

This will be the man who will pull the war-torn world together from the ashes of the coming Mideast war. Islam will be crushed in that war. But the global financial system will survive. Its merchant bankers, in league with the esoteric gods of the marketplace will rule the world.

The Jews would never accept an Islamic Mahdi who had allowed the destruction of his own people, then turned to offer himself as their savior!

The Twelfth Imam and World War III

 Terror - Islam
Thursday, April 05, 2012
J.L. Robb

Most of my Jewish and Christian friends don’t realize that Islam also has a messiah. They aren’t really familiar with the Twelfth Imam, don’t even know if it’s a plant, animal or concrete. Those who don’t believe at all could care less and think it really has no effect on them.

The Twelfth Imam concept is probably the most critical happening in today’s world. Where’s the news? This messianic figure can only come when the world is at war, and Iran is trying her best to make that happen.

Don’t forget, a suicidal cult is not worried about retribution. They will simply be “martyrs” and will be hurrying on their way to The Land of Seventy-Two Virgins. I’m not sure what the female “martyrs” get but doubt it’ll be Chippendale dancers.

When I started reading the Quran, it didn’t take very long to see that if the Quran was true, the Bible was not. The more I read, the more I realized that Muhammad took the Jewish story, embellished it with Arab leanings and told all his neighbors it was true.

Drawing on the Old Testament, Muslim clerics started telling their flocks that they were now the chosen ones. The Jews (they often use more derogatory words) had failed God, again. The Christians worshipped three gods and  polytheism was blasphemy. Islam was the way, the only way, there is no God but Allah.

And like most flocks, the early Arab converts from paganism to the new religion with an invisible God, believed what they were told. Don’t we all do that?

The Twelfth Imam is the Islamic messiah who is to come, though this belief exists primarily among the Shi’a sect, not the Sunni. The Shi’a are spreading this belief in their superiority to the Sunni countries, sort of, through news propaganda and a government sponsored video about the coming al-Mahdi, The Twelfth Imam.

Joel Rosenberg, author of The Twelfth Imam, has lectured for years about this soon to come figure, at least some think he’s soon to come, especially the leaders of Iran. I would encourage all readers to join his blog.

Islam has two main sects, the Shi’a or Shi’ites, and the Sunni. How did that split happen? In a nutshell, Muhammad left no successor when he died in 632 AD. His only son died at an early age. The Muslims at the time were in dire straits with no successor and they asked A’isha, Muhammad’s favorite wife, if Muhammad had mentioned anyone to follow in his footsteps? She said he chose Abu Bakr, her father.

One group was ok with that, and they became Sunni. The other group wanted Ali, Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law, to be the successor.

Today there are about 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. Of those, Shi’ites make up approximately 11% and the Sunnis make up the additional 89%, far from the even split so often portrayed.

It is the Shi’ites who believe whole-heartedly in the Twelfth Imam, the savior who will come, and who already exists, to help them conquer the world for Islam. Jesus is supposed to be right with him.

That may happen, but I think Jesus will not be “with” him but kicking butt instead; at least according to Revelation.

Iran, not Arab but Persian, is the largest Shi’ite country in the world, with 62 million. Iran recently released a video about the coming al-Mahdi, The Twelfth Imam. The Iranian government absolutely believes that they will take over the world. So for the unbelievers, those who believe that God is a myth, the Shi’a belief is that they, the Iranians, will conquer the world, including you. All they have to do is get the Big War started.

Jesus’ apostles seemed fixated on the “last days” or the “end times” after Jesus told them it was going to eventually happen; and it wasn’t going to be pretty. I’m fixated on the subject myself, and so are a lot of others. I am sure the apostles asked the same questions that we would’ve probably asked:  When is it going to happen? What will it be like? How long will it last? Is it gonna hurt? Will we have to endure it?

Jesus said that he didn’t know when it would all start, and deferred to God.

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Matthew 24:36 NIV)

Then Jesus described the events of the last days as “dreadful.” I think that will turn out to be an understatement.

“Immediately after the distress of those days, ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’” (Matthew 24:29 NIV)

Doesn’t look good.

Jesus gave his apostles another sign to watch for, something to quench a little of their thirst to know about the end.

“At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.” (Mark 13:21-23 NIV)

A coming False Prophet is mentioned three times in Revelation and will be a central figure in the destruction of Earth as we now know it. We need to all pay attention.

"Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet.” (Revelation 16:3 NIV)

“But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.” (Revelation 19:20 NIV)

“And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” (Revelation 20:10 NIV)

There are three major branches of Shi’a Islam. The largest branch, Ithna ashariyya, is known in English as the Twelver’s.

Twelvers believe that there have been twelve imams. Ali was the first and Mahmoud al-Mahdi was the last. They believe that the last, al-Mahdi, is still in hiding in the spirit world, and hasn’t been seen since 874 AD. They believe he lives in a cave and is awaiting his opportunity: When the world is at war. That would be the world, not the middle-east.

As Iran, ancient Persia, tries to start World War III to make the Twelfth Imam happen, the United Nations has meetings.

God has told us the story, he has told us what will happen; and now I think he is sitting back and watching it all play out.

It is my belief that the Twelfth Imam will be a real figure, and his title will be the False Prophet as described in Revelation.

Iran Preparing for ‘The Last Six Months’ Prior to the Reappearance of the ‘Islamic Messiah’

“Despite the recent declaration by Iran that it does not want a nuclear bomb and statements by regime officials that they are willing to negotiate over the nuclear issue, indications from within Iran signal massive preparation for an all-out war as part of its destiny.

Nine years ago a Revolutionary Guards arm, the Holy Defense, published a book, ‘The Last Six Months,’ in which it describes the conditions needed in the last six months prior to the reappearance of the last Islamic messiah. The book was distributed in the hundreds of thousands to all Guards, Basij and army bases throughout the country.

Islam’s Shiites believe their 12th Imam, Mahdi, will reappear at the end of times and kill all the infidels, raising the flag of Islam in all four corners of the world.

The book admonishes the military forces that they must be prepared to do their duties during those six months and that there will be many signs to help the faithful to understand the transition, which will center on Iran.

The book, which relies on Islamic hadiths by the Prophet Mohammad and his descendants from centuries ago, describes the 9/11 attacks and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq as signs that the time is near. But it also prophesies much more significant signs that would launch the six-month time frame for the reappearance of Mahdi: an attack on Syria and then an attack on Iran.

Both those events are looking increasingly likely as Syria’s Bashar al-Assad continues to murder his own people and Iran continues its quest for nuclear weapons.

Mahdi will only reappear, Shiites believe, when Israel is destroyed and the U.S. is brought to its knees; two-thirds of the world’s population will die in a nuclear exchange, and with this chaos and havoc engulfing the earth, the ‘coming’ will unfold.

As revealed in the Iranian secret documentary ‘The Coming Is Upon Us,’ it is believed within the Islamic regime that the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is the historical figure as claimed in a hadith who will rise up against the infidels and pass the flag of Islam to Imam Mahdi, the last Islamic messiah.

According to a source who served in the Guards’ intelligence – he has defected to a country in Europe – billions of dollars have been spent on the military forces to emphasize this very ideology of the coming as well as preparation for an all-out war.

Thousands of terrorist cells consisting of the most loyal are placed throughout the world, and they believe Iran will be a key player in creating the circumstances for the coming.

The Islamic regime fully expects to be attacked, the source says. Its leaders believe this will happen as foretold in centuries-old hadiths and written in the book ‘The Last Six Months.’ Response contingencies call for simultaneous attacks on Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, and attacks not only on U.S. bases in the region but the U.S. homeland.

The Islamic regime has already mastered nuclear technology and currently has enough enriched uranium, verified by the IAEA, for six nuclear bombs. It also has ballistic missiles capable of reaching every country in the Middle East and many capitals in Europe but is also working, with the help of China and North Korea, on intercontinental ballistic missiles.

An internal IAEA document from 2009 shows that Khamenei, as early as 1984, was pushing for nuclear bombs, stating that, ‘This was the only way to secure the very essence of the Islamic Revolution from the schemes of its enemies, especially the United States and Israel, and to prepare it for the emergence of Imam Mahdi.’

Of utmost concern is that Iran likely has nuclear weapons already even as it works to create more. As reported in October, Iranian agents scoured the former Soviet republics after the fall of the Soviet Union in search of buying existing nuclear bombs, offering hundreds of millions of dollars. As verified with sources at the State Department, a former U.S. intelligence officer and a Russian general, the Iranians have at least two workable nuclear warheads.

The source in the Guards’ intelligence said he was informed in secret briefings while in the Guards that they had two nuclear bombs, though he could not attest if they were viable. But what he verified next was further terrifying: Iran has neutron bombs, thanks to its North Korea ally.

A neutron bomb is a tactical nuclear weapon invented during the Cold War to kill people with neutron radiation, while minimizing damage to buildings.

‘However, a neutron warhead is more accurately described as, and is officially called, an Enhanced Radiation Warhead because it produces large quantities of all kinds of radiation – including gamma rays – that generate the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) effect at high altitude,’ according to Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, which advises Congress.

‘So if a neutron bomb, or more properly ERW, is detonated at high altitude, above 30 kilometers, it becomes an enhanced EMP weapon, a strategic weapon that could generate a powerful EMP, destroying electronics and collapsing the critical infrastructures that support the lives of millions of people over vast geographic areas,’ Pry said.

As verified by the IAEA, the Guards have launched ballistic missiles from ships and detonated warheads over the earth’s surface. Those tests have only one purpose: create an EMP attack, whether by nuclear or neutron bomb. As revealed last year, the Guards have now armed their naval vessels with ballistic missiles and plan on deploying warships in the Atlantic Ocean.

Studies show that a successful EMP attack could destroy electric power, telecommunications, transportation, banking and finance, and food and water across the continental United States.

The Congressional EMP Commission estimated that, given current U.S. unpreparedness, one year after an EMP attack, about two-thirds of the U.S. population, 200 million people, would have perished from starvation, disease or societal collapse.

As the West continues to negotiate with the leaders of the Islamic regime in Iran, even accepting their nuclear program for ‘peaceful purposes,’ one thing is ominously lacking: an understanding of their ideology.” Source – WND.

Iran leader: We must prep for 'end of times'
'We shall make the Islamic civilization proud on the world stage'

Iran’s supreme leader, for the first time, is telling his nation that it must prepare for war and “the end of times” as it continues to develop nuclear weapons.

State-owned media outlets, in a coordinated effort, all ran a similar story Friday highlighting Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s message on the coming of the last Islamic messiah.

Until now, the Iranian media would mostly quote clerics from seminaries on the issue of the last Islamic messiah to avoid the regime being labeled messianic. However, the wide publication of Khamenei’s statements on a need to prepare for the end of times as it confronts the West over its illicit nuclear program is alarming to Western leaders.

“The issue of Imam Mahdi is of utmost importance, and his reappearance has been clearly stated in our holy religion of Islam,” Khamenei said. We must study and remind ourselves of the end of times and Imam Mahdi’s era. … We must prepare the environment for the coming so that the great leader will come.”

Shiite theology holds that great wars must engulf the Earth, during which one-third of the world’s population will die in the fighting and another third from hunger, lawlessness and havoc. Israel is to be destroyed, and only then will the 12th imam, Mahdi, reappear and kill all the infidels, raising the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.

Under the guidance of Khamenei, several centers have been established in Iran on research and information on the coming of Mahdi, and a conference is held annually on Mahdiism.

“Today we have a duty to prepare for the coming. … If we are the soldiers of the 12th imam, then we must be ready to fight,” Khamenei said.

“With the guidance of Allah and His invisible help, we shall make the Islamic civilization proud on the world stage. … This is our destiny. … The youth, the faithful must prepare themselves for this great move.”

Referring to the Quran, Khamenei said the coming has been promised by Allah. “There will come a time when all the oppressive powers of the world will be destroyed and humanity will be enlightened in the era of Imam Mahdi.”

As reported recently, the regime has distributed the booklet “The Last Six Months” among its military forces in preparation for the coming and its confrontation with the West. The material admonishes the Revolutionary Guards and the Basij paramilitary forces that they must be prepared to do their duties during the expected war.

The Revolutionary Guards’ media outlet, Mashregh, on Sunday warned Israel and America that they will have to guess as to what type of warhead the Iranian missiles will be carrying when targeting them.

In its lengthy piece, Mashregh discussed Iranian missile capability and the devastation it can wreak on potential enemies. Referring to U.S. military bases in the region, it said that in recent war games, ballistic missiles with cluster warheads destroyed targets similar to air bases and fighter craft hiding under hangers.

The piece boasts that the two-stage solid-fuel Sejil missile can pierce through Israel’s missile defense system and has had “the Zionists losing sleep.”

After a decade of negotiation with Iran, the West has yet to make any inroads in stopping the regime’s illicit nuclear program.

The latest report by the International Atomic Energy Agency indicated Iran continues to enrich uranium at both the Natanz and Fordow facilities and now has enough nuclear material for at least five nuclear weapons. The regime has denied an IAEA request for inspection of a military facility where it is believed Iran conducted secret experiments of an implosion-type nuclear weapon.

While a majority of Iranians oppose the mullahs’ brutal regime, Western sanctions have not curtailed its pursuit of nuclear weapons, which not only could lead to the collapse of the global economy but the killing of tens of millions of innocent civilians, including those in Iran.

On a side note - it's no different from the West in terms of preparing the masses for the "coming messiah"...albeit the West does it different with multi media entertainment(ie-movies, music, tv shows, etc), the public education system, and now slowly but surely the modern-day "church".

But yeah, Iran is doing it much more directly in terms of getting their masses to accept the so-called 12th Iman.

Iran preparing Mahdi's Special Forces
Army of operatives planning for terror, destruction of the West

The Quds Forces, a special Iranian unit of thousands of operatives tasked with exporting Iran’s Islamic revolution, are being told to step up preparations for terrorism for the coming of the last Islamic messiah and the destruction of the West.

Ali Saeedi, the Iranian supreme leader’s representative to the Revolutionary Guards, emphasized during a Friday sermon in Tehran that the Islamic republic must directly confront America so that the necessary environment is created for the reappearance of Mahdi, the Shiite’s 12th imam, who will kill all infidels and raise the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.

“In three points of history, God directly confronts the will of unruly humans in which, of course, the Right will overcome the False,” Saeedi said, according to the Sepah News, the Guards’ official publication. “The first point in history was during the era of pharaoh, the second era was Bani Abbas, and the third is our current era in which it seems that God has willed us to enlighten the world with the coming of Imam Mahdi.”

Saeedi, “Many of the signs [necessary] for the coming have taken place during the previous years; however, the main sign will take place right before the coming.”

There are five levels of readiness that have to be prepared for the coming, he said: “Individual readiness, the readiness for creating the environment, systematic readiness, the readiness in the region and the international readiness. This means Occupy Wall Street must take place, the Americans must lose hope with the Democratic Party and others, and lose faith in the U.N., while at the same time the unraveling in the Middle East, which was not ripe before, must have taken place before the coming.”

This is the first time a high-ranking Iranian official has stated on the record that the Quds Forces are not only involved in the region, but also internationally for a final confrontation with the West.

“The Revolutionary Guards are one vehicle for preparation for the coming, and in the current Islamic Awakening [the Arab Spring] in the region and on international arena, the Quds Forces play a major role in preparing the readiness of the human force needed for such an event,” Saeedi said. “The chief commander of the Guards and the supreme leader’s representative are tasked for preparing the individual readiness, regional readiness as well as international readiness for the coming.”

In another Guards’ weekly publication, Sobhe Sadegh, a front-page analysis explains that the opening of Iran’s geopolitics and the empowerment of its Islamic power are a reality in which Iran’s influence has expanded not only in the region, but also in Africa, Latin America, Eastern Asia and even in Europe and America.

As was the fall of socialism and the Eastern bloc, the analysis promises, so will be the fall of the capitalism and liberal democracy.

The analysis refers to the statements of the founder of the Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini:

“I say with all certainty that the 21st century will be the century of Islam.”
“I say with all certainty that Islam will conquer all key entrenchments of the world.”
“I say with all certainty that Islam will defeat all world powers.”
“I say with all certainty that the 21st century is the century where the oppressed will be victorious over the oppressors.”

While the Quds Forces have recently expanded their operations in shipment of explosives to Latin America, Africa and other places in the world, and at the same time have put terror cells on high alert for terrorist acts, the Islamic regime in Iran has expanded its nuclear program in which over 11,000 centrifuges are now running at two facilities, increasing its enriched uranium stock.

As of the last report in May by the IAEA, Iran had enough enriched uranium for six nuclear bombs, and despite all negotiations and recent sanctions, the Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, announced days ago that there will be no turning back from the nuclear path.

Two-thirds of a billion Muslims expect the Mahdi – the last Islamic imam they believe will come and rule the world – to arrive in their lifetimes, according to a new Pew Research poll.

The results affirm the warnings from author Joel Richardson, whose just-released book “Mideast Beast” it moving up Amazon listings.

It’s a sequel to his New York Times bestselling 2009 “The Islamic Antichrist,” and it recently surged past Joel Rosenberg’s “Implosion: Can America Recover from its Economic and Spiritual Challenges in Time?” and “The End: A Complete Overview of Bible Prophecy and the End of Days” by Mark Hitchc0ck to claim the top spot in the Eschatology category on Amazon.

In a column written in WND, Richardson notes that he has been criticized repeatedly for believing many Muslims have a faith in the coming Mahdi, especially that there are a significant number who believe that will happen soon.

The survey by Pew Research notes that in the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia, “half or more Muslims believe they will live to see the return of the Mahdi. This expectation is most widespread in Afghanistan (83 percent), Iraq (72 percent), Tunisia (67 percent) and Malaysia (62 percent).

The survey said that belief drops to about four-in-10 across Central Asia, except for Turkey, where 68 percent expect to witness his return. It drops slightly further across southern and eastern Europe.

“In some countries with sizable Sunni and Shi’a populations, views on the Mahdi’s return differ by sect. In Iraq, for example, Shi’as are more likely than Sunnis to expect the Mahdi to return in their lifetime, by an 88 percent to 55 percent margin. In Azerbaijan, the difference between the two groups is also large (25 percentage points),” the report said. “Differences between Shi’as and Sunnis on this issue may reflect the more central role that the Mahdi’s return plays in Shi’a Islam.”

The result? An estimated 672 million Muslims expect to witness the Mahdi’s return.

On his portrayal that such a belief is widespread, Richardson said, “I have certainly had my share of critics, not only from the pollyannas on the left, but also from within the Christian church.”

He said, for example, prophecy teacher and evangelist David Reagan has been vocal, saying, “Richardson’s presentation of what Muslims believe about the end times is very misleading, for what he presents is the Shi’ite version which revolves around the concept of an Islamic Messiah called the Mahdi. He leaves the impression that all the Islamic world is living in breathless anticipation of the appearance of the Mahdi, when the reality is that 90 percent of all Muslims – the Sunnis – are not looking for a Mahdi.”

Richardson said until now it’s been hard to refute any statements regarding the percentage of Muslims who await the Mahdi.

“Now, for the first time, a comprehensive study including tens of thousands of Muslims, in over 23 countries, were asked if they believed that the Mahdi’s emergence was imminent, that it would occur within their lifetimes. And the results conclusively prove that which I have been warning about all along,” he wrote.

The Pew findings:


Richardson explains that the false claim that only 10 percent of Muslims await the Mahdi may now be “put to bed.”

“The bottom line is that it is far worse, far more widespread than even I would have guessed,” he wrote.

And in Turkey, from which he believes the Antichrist will come, “68 percent of Turks, a large majority, are expecting the imminent appearance of the Mahdi.”

“Certainly the popularity of Mahdism within Turkey, when combined with the concurrent radical rise in (1) Turkish nationalism and Neo-Ottoman aspirations, and (2) anti-Semitism within Turkey, in so many ways, sets the stage for this nation to move toward fulfilling many of the last days prophecies of the Bible,” he wrote.

“Another important factor that I have been trying to make for years, is that although conventional wisdom has placed all emphasis on Iran as the nation that would produce a false Mahdi claimant (I say claimant, as there actually is no such thing as the Mahdi), the real danger has always lay with the Sunni world.

“The primary reason for this is because while the leaders of Iran regularly make a lot of noise concerning the the Mahdi – often referred to by them as the 12th Imam – there are some very strong reasons that it is highly unlikely that Iran will ever see a genuine Mahdi claimant figure arise. What outsiders must understand is that Iranian Muslim scholars have developed a very thorough systematic theology to essentially guard against any false Mahdi claimant from emerging. … I do not believe that Iran will ever produce Mahdi claimant who will ever be received widely by the leaders or the people of that nation.”

“In my book ‘Islamic Antichrist: The Shocking Truth about the Real Nature of the Beast,’ I walk the alert reader through the frightening world of Islamic apocalyptic views, comparing them with the biblical prophecies concerning the coming of the Antichrist, showing beyond any doubt that in the Islamic doctrine of the Mahdi, the world should in fact be very concerned. In my new book, ‘Mideast Beast,’ I demonstrate beyond any doubt, the scriptural case for an Islamic Antichrist. As always, it is time for the Christian world to wake up and fall to their knees in prayer. The hour is far later than most think.”

It was in “The Islamic Antichrist,” Richardson’ stunning research and analysis suggested that the biblical Antichrist and Islam’s primary messiah figure (the Mahdi) could be the same person. Now, taking a hard look at the most significant biblical end-time texts, “Mideast Beast” argues persuasively that the Antichrist, his empire and his religion will come from the Middle East and not Europe as has been widely taught by many modern prophecy teachers.

The Pew project reviewed what Muslims believe about angels, predestination or fate, the afterlife, heaven and hell (99 percent in Thailand believe in eternal punishment), the Mahdi’s imminent return and the return of Jesus, who many Muslims believe will deny Christianity and pledge allegiance to Allah.

Ahmadinejad Gives 'End Times' Address To U.N.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today called for the end of the “hegemonic” powers of the United States and Israel, whom he described as “the uncivilized Zionists.” He said the world would “soon” see new “global management” by the Twelfth Imam, also known as the “Mahdi,” and his deputy, Jesus Christ. This was Ahmadinejad’s eighth and likely final annual address to the opening fall session of the United Nations General Assembly. He is expected to finish his second term in office in June 2013. In each of his past U.N. speeches, he prayed for the soon coming of the so-called Islamic messiah. This time he went much further, offering his most detailed explanation to date of his Shi’a Islamic eschatology and his understanding of the coming rule of the Twelfth Imam.


Ahmadinejad Tells UN To Prepare For Arrival Of Islamic Messiah

With the U.S. and Israeli delegations absent in boycott, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the General Assembly on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur in a rambling, apocalyptic speech in which he declared his confidence that the table already is being set for a “new world order.” What Ahmadinejad means by “new world order,” however, has nothing to do with the globalist economic and political integration envisioned by President George H. W. Bush. Known internationally as “Twelvers,” radical Shiite Muslims like Ahmadinejad believe the new order will come with the return of their messiah, the Mahdi – the child imam who supposedly went into seclusion at the bottom of a well more than 1,000 years ago.

Myths of a Muslim Antichrist
by Jeremy Stevens
Ever since the followers of Mohammad stormed across the Middle East in the 6th century, Christians have feared this aggressive religion. Aside from the three hundred year struggle of the Crusades, Christians and Muslims have clashed time and again. Wherever Islam grows, the established Christian society finds itslef besieged by the resilience of Islamic culture, and occasionally by the power of Muslim armies.

Lebanon, Nigeria, Egypt, Syria – all of these countries have seen their Christian minorities oppressed as Islamic birthrates continue to dominate their Christian adversaries. In the 21st century, Americans are rightfully afraid of the terror wrought by radical Islamist groups. From the recent killing of our ambassador in Libya to the terror of 9/11, Americans are on the front line of the War on Terror.

With Muslim birthrates soaring across predominantly Christian strongholds from Europe to Sub-Saharan Africa some sociological experts have Islam replacing Christianity as the world’s largest religion soon—real soon. There are simply not enough Dugger families in the Christian world to keep up with the Duggers of “Islamistan”.

What does scripture say about Islam’s future? Should Christians be so fearful of the world’s second largest religion? Additionally, there has been a growing movement in evangelical circles to pin the ethnic/religious background of the future antichrist as a Muslim.

Arguments for a Muslim Antichrist

No, the antichrist was not Hitler. Neither was the antichrist George Bush or Barack Obama. It’s not even Lady Gaga. Some in the evangelical world believe the antichrist will come from the Muslim world, not the Western world.

In his book The Power to Make War, the late great evangelist Zane Hodges believed the antichrist would be a Muslim due to the reference of “the Assyrian” found in Isaiah. Because that particular reference was discussing the antichrist, the Bible must be indicating that the antichrist will be an Assyrian. Since the Assyrian empire was founded in the Middle East, the Assyrian antichrist must also be a Muslim.

Philip Goodman, in his work The Assyrian Connection, also points to the reference of “the Assyrian” in Micah 5:5 as evidence for an Assyrian antichrist. Goodman speculates that there will be a revived Assyrian Empire founded in the Middle East.1 This Assyrian Empire will spawn the antichrist and will invade the globe from the Middle East.

Joel Richardson, author of Antichrist: Islam’s Awaited Messiah, believes the fourth world empire of Daniel’s dreams was not Rome and its descendants, but rather, the Ottoman Empire.2 This revived Ottoman Empire will create a caliphate across the Middle East, and will lead a host of nations against Israel.

Richardson also cites the similarities between the Shiite last Imam in Islamic eschatology with the antichrist of Scripture -- beheadings, conquest, and an intense dislike for Christians and Jews.

Do these authors have valid arguments for an Islamic antichrist? Given the recent surge in Muslim population across the globe it may appear so. Despite their claims, there are many issues with this theory. I have limited these problems to six major flaws below.

Why the Antichrist will NOT be a Muslim

1. “The Assyrian” reference in scripture does not necessarily refer to the antichrist

Dr. David Reagan, of Lion/Lamb ministries explains in his article, "The Antichrist: Will he be a Muslim?" that the reference found in Micah 5:5 to the “Assyrian” is located squarely in a Millennium passage of Micah. During the Millennium, Dr. Reagan asserts that God will protect Israel from all their enemies (Assyria was the enemy of Israel at the time Micah was written).3

Similarly, references in Isaiah to “the Assyrian” are attributed more to the character of the antichrist rather than the ethnicity. Similar types of antichrists are found throughout scripture. Sennacherib the Assyrian king who besieged Jerusalem was certainly a type. As was the Egyptian pharaoh of the Exodus. The most famous antichrist type was Antiochus Epiphanes, highlighted in Daniel 8 and again in Daniel 11.

“The Assyrian” must be a reference to his character as an enemy of God’s people and a terrible person overall.

2. Assyrians are predominantly Christian anyway

Even if the “antichrist-will-be-Assyrian” crowd is right, Assyrians today are predominantly Christian and not Muslim. Yes, most of them reside in present day Iraq, Syria, and Turkey (all overwhelmingly Muslim nations) but Assyrians themselves are over 90% Christian today. This counters the claim that an Assyrian antichrist would have to be Muslim.

3. Daniel predicted a Roman antichrist not a Middle Eastern one

In the famous “seventy weeks” passage of Daniel 9 the Old Testament prophet predicts the coming Tribulation as well as the ethnicity of the antichrist. Daniel 9:26b states, “…and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary…”

Daniel prophesies that this same “prince” in verse 26 will make a treaty with Israel in verse 27. He will then break that treaty and set up the abomination that causes desolation during the middle of the Tribulation. The “people” of this prince (the antichrist) were predicted to destroy the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary.

In 70 AD, almost five hundred years after Daniel’s prediction, the Roman Empire annihilated the Jewish people. A culmination of three Jewish uprisings, this last assault on Jerusalem would kill over a million Jews and send millions more into slavery across the Roman world.

Jerusalem has only been destroyed one time after Daniel’s prophecy and it occurred almost 2,000 years ago at the hands of the Romans. Therefore we can conclude that the antichrist, the prince of the Romans, will be a man of Roman descent -- not Assyrian.

4. The Fourth Beast of Daniel’s dream is Roman/Western, not Islamic/Middle Eastern

Daniel’s four world Gentile empires found in chapters 2 and 7 of his book describe four world empires in chronological order. Please look up these passages as you are reading this article.

a. Babylon (lion, head of gold)

b. Persia (bear, silver arms)

c. Greco-Macedonian (leopard, (bronze torso/legs)

d. Roman (iron beast of Rome, two legs (Eastern and Western Rome, and the future ten-toes/feet of antichrist’s rule)

It is plain to see in Daniel’s visions that neither Islam nor the Ottoman Empire were represented. Chronologically, there are no gaps in Daniel’s dreams other than the one separating the iron beast of Rome with its ten-toed counterpart during the Tribulation.

Babylon was quickly replaced by Persia in 538 BC, while Persia was swiftly routed by Alexander in 332 BC. After Alexander died, his generals divided the empires amongst themselves, only to eventually succumb to the power of Rome in the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC. Rome dominated the world for another seven hundred years until its eventual collapse in 476 AD. The East wouldn’t collapse until 1453 AD.

Islam is also a relatively modern phenomenon, arriving in the 6th century AD. Islamic warriors never conquered the globe, nor are they expected to do so. The Islamic world of today is a conglomerate of different cultures, governments, and peoples, not a united Gentile world empire like Babylon, Persia, Greece, or Rome.

The Ottoman Empire is even younger. The Ottoman Turks made their debut in the Middle Ages against the Christian Crusaders, but wouldn’t grow to their full height until the 16th and 17th centuries AD.

The Ottoman Empire was impressive during its time, but fell apart after WWI. Scripturally and geopolitically, Turkey is not predicted to conquer the earth any time soon. Yes, Turkey is making a comeback today. Turkey may be involved in the Gog/Magog fiasco of Ezekiel 38 and 39, but Turkey will not spawn the antichrist or conquer the entire earth.

Those who claim the two legs of Daniel’s dream represent the two legs of the Ottoman Empire (Shiite and Sunni) have forgotten to account for nearly 1,000 years of Roman domination, the basic chronological outline of Daniel, as well as the nature of Islamic society and culture itself. Ah yes, one more thing – the Ottoman Empire was predominantly Sunni and not Shiite. The vast majority of Muslims practice Sunni and not Shiite Islam. Unless Daniel’s end-times beast was hobbling around on one leg, his visions cannot represent Sunni and Shiite Islam. The end-times world government will be a Roman/Western government, not an Eastern/Islamic one.

5. Lots of people enjoy be-headings (not just radical Islamists)

British and French people beheaded their monarchs. Japanese Samurai preferred beheadings as an honorable death. Mexican drug cartels are also known for the gruesome practice. Yes, there is a similarity between the end-times Shiite eschatology and that of Scripture – both the Imam and the antichrist love lopping off heads. Then again, so do a lot of different peoples and cultures today.

6. Imagine a Muslim antichrist blaspheming Allah… and living to tell about it

The Bible doesn’t hold back when describing the personality of the antichrist. He will be the worst human being in world history. Think about that for a moment. Perhaps the most telling indication that the antichrist will not hail from a Muslim land is found in Daniel 11:37,

“He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all.”

Could you imagine the response of a devoutly Islamic nation like Egypt or Iran after their leader says, “I am god, there is no other god but… me! You will now bow down and worship… me!” This declaration would be both a direct blasphemy against Allah and a death sentence. Even in secular Turkey a man who claimed to be god would find himself thrown in prison at best.

No, the antichrist will not come from a Muslim land. The biblical, cultural, and historical evidence is too strong against the prospect.

More likely, the antichrist will come from the heir of the Roman Empire – the Western world. Rather than declared a heretic and beheaded, the antichrist’s blasphemous opinions will be welcomed with open arms in post-Christian Europe as trendy and edgy. If you’re planning to take that once-in-a-lifetime getaway trip to Europe with your spouse, do it sooner than later.

Nuclear Iran Seeks Apocalyptic Holy Man

President Barack Obama knows who the enemy is. September 11, 2012 was clear evidence that the killing of Osama Bin Laden was not a fait accompli when it comes to ending the terrorist threat. Obama is reluctant to openly admit that radical Islam’s open declaration of war presents a danger to America. The state of Israel shows no such hesitancy. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently stood before the United Nations and warned of a medieval war of civilizations that is set to erupt global security. A nuclear armed Iran is far different, Netanyahu pointed out, than a nuclear armed Russia. Netanyahu emphasized the distinction between the two ideologies of Iran and Soviet Russia:

“Militant Jihadists behave very differently from Secular Marxists. There were no Soviet suicide bombers. Yet, Iran produces hordes of them. Deterrence worked with the Soviets because every time Soviets chose between their ideology and survival, they chose survival. But, deterrence may not work with Iranians when they get their nuclear weapons.”

Netanyahu went on to explain that the difference between the two aggressors is the value placed on life. Iran anticipates its own destruction as a price to pay for bombing the globe into chaos:

“A great scholar of the Middle East, Bernard Lewis, put it best: ‘For the Ayatollahs of Iran, mutual assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement. Iran’s apocalyptic leaders believe that a medieval Holy Man will reappear in the wake of a devastating holy war, thereby insuring that their brand of radical Islam will rule the earth.’ Now, that’s not just what they believe, that is what is guiding their policies and their actions.”

Americans and nations worldwide must recognize the seriousness and inflexibility of Iran’s goal towards mutual destruction and the Obama administration’s role to date in the rapidly developing global crisis. Inexplicably to many, Barack Obama unleashed uprisings in the Middle East while implementing a radical Socialist agenda to “transform America” back home.

The overall intent is not as bifurcated as it may appear. The radical Islamists are waging a war of religion while the radical left is waging a war of ideas. The mutual goal is the toppling of a republic based, Judeo-Christian founded and Constitutionally-grounded America. Jihadists want America to become an Islamic state like Iran, whereas the left wants a “transformation of America” to a Socialist nation. Both systems devour individual rights and freedoms. Key to both movements is total elimination of all belief systems counter to their own. Were they to succeed, as natural enemies, Islamists and Socialists will eventually target one another. Radical Islam condemns to death all that reject a belief in Allah. Socialists constitute much of America’s Progressive-Left and have consistently legislated God out of American society, seeking to become god to the masses.

President Obama is the titular head of the Progressive-Left. President Obama understands Islam having studied the Koran in Indonesia. Part of the curriculum was that The Twelfth Imam or Twelfth Mahdi is the Islamic savior — its Islamic messiah. Islam requires that in order for the Twelfth Imam to reveal himself, the world must be in global war. Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reportedly believes that he has the divine mission to “hasten the return” of the 12th Mahdi. Destroying Israel, then America, erupts the world into the chaos needed for the Mahdi’s return.

Some 600 years before Islam, Christ appeared during His first coming as God-incarnate. The Christian Messiah is the Savior Jesus Christ. Islam reveres Jesus as a lesser prophet and not God, which puts Islam at inextricable odds with Christianity. Iranian President Ahmadinejad believes the “Mahdi” or “Twelfth Imam” will appear publicly during a time of great disaster, with Jesus at his side, to bring peace to a war-torn world. It is said that the 12th Mahdi will take Jesus to Mecca to replace the Bible with the Koran so that Christians worldwide will convert to Islam. A “Muslim anti-Christ” is also to surface in the world and falsely convince Jews that he is their “Jesus the Messiah” that they have long awaited.

An “Islamic Jesus,” it is said, will kill all Jews and behead anyone worldwide who does not accept Islam as the only true religion. The Islamic Mahdi will set-up his kingdom in Jerusalem, establish a worldwide Caliphate, along with Shariah Law, and rule the world. Homosexuals will be killed and women will remain as property and oppressed. Such belief is a driving force of today’s war on non-Islamic nations; an ancient war based on fundamental Islam that has entrenched the globe in a war on terror. Those who identify themselves as moderate Muslims declare that only extremists hold such beliefs.

The funding by Iran of the upheaval in the Middle East, the positioning of radical Muslim groups in governments across the region from Lebanon to Egypt cannot simply be dismissed as a war of ideologies between the West and the Muslim world. By Ahmadinejad’s admission, Iran’s role in the turmoil in the Middle East is to set the stage for the return of the Twelfth Imam. Obama’s years studying Islam should have taught him that he cannot schmooze leaders like Ahmadinejad, gain their favor, and unmoor them from what they believe is the only reason they exist on the planet. Islamic radicals seek world chaos targeting first Israel and then the United States. For Barack Obama to in anyway diminish the radical Islamist threat prioritizes his personally held biases that jeopardize America’s safety.

Netanyahu has recognized the danger and has openly warned of it for more than 15 years:

“Shockingly, some people have begun to peddle the absurd notion that a nuclear armed Iran would actually stabilize the Middle East. Yeah, right. That’s like saying a nuclear armed Al-Qaeda would usher in an era of universal peace. I speak about it now because the Iranian nuclear calendar does not wait for anyone or anything. I speak about it now because the hour is getting late, very late. I speak about it now because when it comes to the survival of my country, it is not only my right to speak, but my duty to speak. And, I believe that this is the duty of every responsible [world] leader who wants to preserve peace.”

Netanyahu warned that it is not just Israel and the United States, but the world at large that is being targeted:

“Militant Islam has many branches – from the rulers of Iran with their Revolutionary Guards to Al Qaeda terrorists to the radical cells lurking in every part of the globe. But, despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance. That intolerance is directed first at their fellow Muslims, and then to Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, secular people, anyone who doesn’t submit to their unforgiving creed.”

Muslim views of the Apocalypse

Muslim and Christian views of the Apocalypse bear remarkable similarities, albeit with a different ending.

As in the Bible’s Book of Revelation, Islamic tradition speaks of signs — unnatural disasters, wars and moral decay — that will portend the Last Days. And like Christians, many Muslims believe that Jesus, whom they call Isa, will return to defeat the Antichrist.

Contemporary Muslim apocalyptists have even borrowed from their Christian counterparts, such as Hal Lindsay, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, to discern the dates of the Antichrist’s arrival, said David Cook, an expert on Islamic eschatology and associate professor at Rice University.

“There are Muslim apocalyptic readings of the book of Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation,” says Cook. “The only difference is the `good guys’ are Muslims, not Christians.”

The Muslim Jesus destroys the cross and the swine, symbols of Christian innovations, and converts Christians to Islam, said Abdulaziz Sachedina, a professor of Islamic studies at the University of Virginia. Whether he does so violently or not is a matter of debate.

In Islamic tradition, Jesus is joined by a figure named the Mahdi, who helps subdue Satan and rid the world of corruption and injustice.

Some Muslims don’t like the idea of Jesus playing the messianic hero, and have thus assigned a larger role to the Mahdi, said Cook. That belief is strong among Shiites, particularly the “Twelvers” in Iran, where President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has often spoke of the Mahdi’s return.

Twelvers believe that the Mahdi is the 12th imam — hence their name — a descendant of Prophet Muhammad who has been hidden since the 9th century.

In addition to Iran, faith in the Mahdi’s imminent arrival is widespread in Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey and Tunisia, according to a 2012 Pew Research center poll.

This is something that i have never heard before, that the Mahdi will find the Ark of the Covenant and use it to get the Jews support in the End Times.

In chapter 2 (Sura 2) of the Islamic Quran (Verse 248), the Children of Israel, at the time of Samuel and Saul, were given back the Tabut E Sakina (the casket of Shekhinah) which contained remnants of the household of Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron) carried by angels which confirmed peace and reassurance for them from their Lord. The Qur'an states:
And (further) their Prophet said to them: "A Sign of his authority is that there shall come to you the Ark of the Covenant, with (an assurance) therein of security (Sakina) from your Lord, and the relics left by the family of Moses and the family of Aaron, carried by angels. In this is a symbol for you if ye indeed have faith.[19]

The Islamic scholar Al Baidawi mentioned that the sakina could be Tawrat, the Books of Moses.[20] According to Al-Jalalan, the relics in the Ark were the fragments of the two tablets, rods, robes, shoes, mitres of Moses and the vase of manna.[20] Al-Tha'alibi, in Qisas Al-Anbiya (The Stories of the Prophets), has given an earlier and later history of the Ark.

According to most Muslim scholars, the Ark of the Covenant has a religious basis in Islam, and Islam gives it special significance. A Shia sect of Muslims believe that it will be found by Mahdi near the end of times from Lake Tiberias.[21]


Now this is what is kind of really weird,  Lake Tiberias is the Sea of Galilee, and look what has just been found...

Mysterious Stone Structure Discovered Beneath Sea of Galilee

A giant "monumental" stone structure discovered beneath the waters of the Sea of Galilee in Israel has archaeologists puzzled as to its purpose and even how long ago it was built.

The mysterious structure is cone shaped, made of "unhewn basalt cobbles and boulders," and weighs an estimated 60,000 tons the researchers said. That makes it heavier than most modern-day warships.

Rising nearly 32 feet (10 meters) high, it has a diameter of about 230 feet (70 meters). To put that in perspective, the outer stone circle of Stonehenge has a diameter just half that with its tallest stones not reaching that height. [See Photos of the Mysterious Sea of Galilee Structure]

It appears to be a giant cairn, rocks piled on top of each other. Structures like this are known from elsewhere in the world and are sometimes used to mark burials. Researchers do not know if the newly discovered structure was used for this purpose.

The structure was first detected in the summer of 2003 during a sonar survey of the southwest portion of the sea. Divers have since been down to investigate, they write in the latest issue of the International Journal of Nautical Archaeology.

"Close inspection by scuba diving revealed that the structure is made of basalt boulders up to 1 m (3.2 feet) long with no apparent construction pattern," the researchers write in their journal article. "The boulders have natural faces with no signs of cutting or chiselling. Similarly, we did not find any sign of arrangement or walls that delineate this structure."

[The 10 Best Space Apps in the Universe]

They say it is definitely human-made and probably was built on land, only later to be covered by the Sea of Galilee as the water level rose. "The shape and composition of the submerged structure does not resemble any natural feature. We therefore conclude that it is man-made and might be termed a cairn," the researchers write.

More than 4,000 years old?

Underwater archaeological excavation is needed so scientists can find associated artifacts and determine the structure's date and purpose, the researchers said.

Researcher Yitzhak Paz, of the Israel Antiquities Authority and Ben-Gurion University, believes it could date back more than 4,000 years. "The more logical possibility is that it belongs to the third millennium B.C., because there are other megalithic phenomena [from that time] that are found close by," Paz told LiveScience in an interview, noting that those sites are associated with fortified settlements.

The researchers list several examples of megalithic structures found close to the Sea of Galilee that are more than 4,000 years-old. One example is the monumental site of Khirbet Beteiha, located some 19 miles (30 kilometers) north-east of the submerged stone structure, the researchers write. It "comprises three concentric stone circles, the largest of which is 56 m [184 feet] in diameter." [Gallery: Aerial Photos Reveal Mysterious Stone Structures]

An ancient city

If the third-millennium B.C. date idea proves correct it would put the structure about a mile to the north of a city that researchers call "Bet Yerah" or "Khirbet Kerak."

During the third millennium B.C. the city was one of the biggest sites in the region, Paz said. "It's the most powerful and fortified town in this region and, as a matter of fact, in the whole of Israel."

Archaeologist Raphael Greenberg describes it in a chapter of the book "Daily Life, Materiality, and Complexity in Early Urban Communities of the Southern Levant" (Eisenbrauns, 2011) as being a heavily fortified 74-acre (30 hectares) site with up to 5,000 inhabitants.

With paved streets and towering defenses its people were clearly well organized. "They also indicate the existence of some kind of municipal authority able to maintain public structures ..." Greenberg writes.

The research team says that, like the leaders of Bet Yerah, whoever built the newly discovered Sea of Galilee structure needed sophisticated organization and planning skills to construct it. The "effort invested in such an enterprise is indicative of a complex, well-organized society, with planning skills and economic ability," they write in their journal paper.

Paz added that "in order to build such a structure a lot of working hours were required" in an organized community effort.

Future exploration

Paz said that he hopes soon that an underwater archaeological expedition will set out to excavate the structure. They can search for artifacts and try to determine its date with certainty.

He said that the Israel Antiquities Authority has a research branch capable of excavating it. "We will try to do it in the near future, I hope, but it depends on a lot of factors."


I dont think its true but it is interesting...

Arabs Meet To Establish Caliphate For Coming Of Mahdi (Muslim Messiah)

Thousands of PA Arabs participated in a mass rally in Ramallah earlier this week calling for the establishment of the Muslim Caliphate – the worldwide Islamist government that will “bring the coming of the Mahdi.” the Muslim messiah. The Caliphate is essentially a union of Muslim countries under the spiritual and political leadership of a single individual, the Caliph. It has been an Islamic concept since the days of Muhammad, when it was established by several of his disciples. The office of “official Caliph” has been disputed at times, with rival would-be Caliphs battling each other for the title. The last official Caliph was Abdülmecid II, who lost the office in the aftermath of the defeat of Ottoman Turkey in World War I. The best-known Caliph in the West was Suleiman the Great, an early Ottoman sultan who, in the 16th century, conquered most of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf, even conquering parts of Europe, until he was stopped at “the Gates of Vienna.”

Analysis: Is Rouhani a Twelver”? Iran’s President-elect just thanked the Mahdi for his victory.

Despite the Western media’s insistence that Iran’s President-Elect, Hassan Rouhani, is a “moderate” and a “reformist,” the evidence is clear: Rouhani is actually a high-ranking Radical Shia cleric who fundamentally agrees with the terrorist and repressive policies of the Ayatollah Khamenei and has been faithful in supporting such policies. Rouhani’s son reportedly even committed suicide because of the shame he felt that Rouhani was so supportive of Khamenei’s evil ways.

The central question I have been curious about since the rigged election is whether Rouhani shares the Supreme Leader’s eschatology. Namely, is Rouhani a “Twelver”? Does he believe as Khamenei does that the End of Days has come, and that the Twelfth Imam (or Mahdi) is going to appear at any moment to destroy the infidels and establish a global Islamic caliphate, and that Iran’s regime can and must hasten the arrival of their so-called messiah by annihilating America (which they consider the “Great Satan”) and Israel (which they consider the “Little Satan”)?

In 2008, for example, Rouhani was sharply critical of Ahmadinejad’s public statements regarding eschatology and the Mahdi. That led some analysts the conclusion that Rouhani did not share Ahmadinejad’s beliefs. But that wasn’t necessarily the case.

Consider an alternative scenario: Rouhani is a trained Shia cleric. As such, he most certainly believes in the Twelfth Imam. What’s more, he was approved to run for President by Khamenei and the regime, when 686 other candidates (including Rafsanjani) were prohibited from running. Thus, Rouhani surely shares the same essential theology and eschatology of the Supreme Leader. If this is true, then Rouhani’s problem with Ahmadinejad was likely not that Ahmadinejad believed in the Mahdi but that Ahmadinejad was not a trained cleric, and he was making all kinds of wild claims about the imminence of the Mahdi’s appearance, and he seemed to be bringing discredit to a subject the Supreme Leader and Rouhani consider dear.

True, I have not yet found much that Rouhani has written or said about his beliefs regarding the Mahdi or Shia “Twelver” eschatology. So I cannot yet say definitively what he believes or how eschatology shapes his world view.

That said, there is a major news report in Iran in recent days indicating that Rouhani (also spelled “Rohani” and “Rowhani”) is attributing his victory to the favor of the Mahdi.

“Iran’s newly elected president, Hassan Rohani, attributed his victory in the  June 15 voting to the 12th Imam, Mahdi, a statement with ominous overtones in  the Islamic regime’s quest for nuclear weapons,” reports former Iranian CIA operative Reza Khalili, based on public reporting in Tehran. “The Shiites believe that at the end of times, the 12th Imam, a 9th-century  prophet, will reappear with Jesus Christ at his side, kill all the infidels and  raise the flag of Islam in all four corners of the world. Many analysts believe  Iran is seeking nuclear capability to bring on that Armageddon.”

“This political [election] was due to the kindness of the last Islamic  messiah [Mahdi],” Rouhani said Friday.

“Kayhan newspaper, the main media outlet of the regime and the mouthpiece of  the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, ran a centerpiece headline Saturday reporting Rohani’s statement: ‘This victory and the epic saga is without a doubt due to the special kindness  of the Imam Zaman (Mahdi) and the measures taken by the supreme leader,  especially his guidance and words. … Without his management then it was not  clear if the people of Iran would witness such a day filled with joy,’ Rohani  said. ‘I am so happy that there is a feeling of joy in our society and that the election took place in the month of Shaban [the 8th Islamic month, representative of courage and blessings], which is the month of victory.’”

Is it possible that the Supreme Leader insisted Rouhani put out such a statement, because Khamenei is such a devoted Twelver, even if Rouhani is not? Yes, that is possible.

It is also possible that Rouhani is as deeply committed a Twelver as the Ayatollah, but more careful in his words that Ahmadinejad.

Time will tell, but this a story worth watching closely.

Cardinal Dolan makes first visit to NYC mosque, meets with Staten Island Muslim leaders

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, made his first visit to a mosque in New York City and it was the Albanian Islamic Cultural Center in Tompkinsville where he met with Muslim and other faith leaders.

The cardinal spent more than two hours touring the mosque and the Miraj Islamic School and having lunch with about 40 clergy and laity.

"I thank God that this day has arrived," the cardinal said. "I thank you for your welcome, I thank you for making me feel like a friend and a member of a family."

The cardinal asked questions about the Muslim faith and emphasized throughout his visit how much the two religions and their members have in common.

"You love God, we love God and he is the same God," the cardinal said of the Muslim and Roman Catholic faiths.

Cardinal Dolan stressed that Catholics and Muslims have a mutual love of the United States and of the religious freedom that this country affords, especially the ability to meet with people of different beliefs that would not be possible in some other nations.

"Your love of marriage and family, your love of children and babies, your love of freedom -- religious freedom particularly-- your defense of life, your desire for harmony and unity and your care for others, your care for God's creation and your care for those who are in need," the cardinal said, were Islamic values also shared by Catholics and areas where there could be mutual cooperation.

He likened Muslims to earlier waves of Roman Catholic immigrants who some 150 years ago faced the same challenge of "how to become loyal, responsible, patriotic Americans without losing their faith."

As those Catholic immigrants did, Muslims have learned the value of religious schools, he said. "Education without faith is missing something dramatic," the cardinal said.

The cardinal's trip to the mosque was in response to an invitation by leaders of the center who visited the archbishop in Manhattan in January.

"Thank God that we are a country that welcomes everybody and, as you mentioned, your eminence, only in America, and we want this example to be spread because we can do many more things when we eat together as brothers than when we stay against one another," said Imam Tahir Kukiqi of the Albanian Center.

Imam Kukiqi praised attendee Sarah Sayeed of the Interfaith Center of New York for "working tirelessly with Muslim communities and Catholic communities, especially to bring them together."

Imam Ghulam Rasul of the predominately Pakistani Masjid al-Noor in Concord led a prayer "to bring peace, harmony and understanding between the communities ... guide us so that we may be the souls of goodness, peace and harmony and understanding for the people of this country and for the community of this Island."

The cardinal is following on a local level the example of Pope Francis who has begun efforts to deepen and strengthen the relationship between the Islamic and Christian communities in Italy and other parts of Europe, said Monsignor James Dorney, a co-vicar of Staten Island. His co-vicar, Monsignor Peter Finn, announced that Wednesday was the 37th anniversary of Cardinal Dolan's ordination.

The Rev. Liam O'Doherty, pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel R.C. Church in Tompkinsville, was instrumental in arranging the visit and brought along many members of his parish council. Leaders of the Albanian Center and Masjid al-Noor invited the cardinal to visit their mosques during the month of Ramadan.

Spokesman Says Iran's President 'Will Return With Hidden Imam'

An Iranian government spokesman has said that outgoing President Mahmud Ahmadinejad will return with the Hidden Imam, who according to Shi'ite belief went into hiding in the 10th century and will reappear to bring justice to Earth.

"God willing, with the manifestation of Imam Mehdi, Ahmadinejad will also return and work for the establishment of pure Islam," spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by Iranian news agencies.

Ahmadinejad and his close aides have been criticized in Iran over their repeated references to Mahdi and signs of his imminent coming.

Ahmadinejad came under fire in March for saying that former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will be resurrected alongside Jesus and the Hidden Imam.

Floridians Outraged Over Islamic Bias And Indoctrination In School Textbooks

Read more: http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/07/floridians-outraged-over-islamic-bias-and-indoctrination-in-school-textbooks/#ixzz2aNCLT5bK

Does Prentice Hall ring a bell? Depending on when you went to school you may have had a few Prentice Hall textbooks. I know I did. One of their current textbooks, simply titled World History, is causing quite the stir in Florida. Florida Today reports:

Two Brevard School Board members are reviewing a world history textbook used in ninth grade Advance Placement classes amid concerns that it is biased in favor of Islam — at the expense of Christianity and Judaism.

House Representative Ritch Workman and individuals from two citizens groups spoke against the textbook, Prentice Hall World History, at the Brevard School Board meeting Tuesday, citing examples of phrases and passages they believe show bias.

“Our children deserve facts and accuracy, not history being revised for our own failure or desire to not offend one culture or another,” said Workman, a Republican from Melbourne.

The textbook, which has been used in Brevard for the past three years, devotes a chapter to Islam, with sections including the rise of Islam and the building of the Muslim empire. Conversely, Christianity and Judaism do not have their own chapters and instead are referenced in paragraphs embedded in other sections.

Workman also expressed concern about how historic events are portrayed and what phrases are used. For example, he said the textbook reads Jesus proclaims himself to be the Messiah but declares Muhammad becomes a prophet.

School board members Amy Kneessy and Andy Ziegler promised to review the textbook, which is published by Pearson, a well-known printer of educational textbooks.

“No matter what the subject is, whether it’s math, English, science or world history, students need to have accurate, unbiased information,” Kneessy said. “If textbooks are unbiased or incomplete, it’s our job to fix that.”

This story is much bigger than a Florida school system. We must consider how big Prentice Hall is and consider that there are likely tens of thousands of these textbooks in circulation. Prentice Hall is not foreign to controversy on this subject. According to Stop the Madrassa…

The Textbook League is another national center that evaluates textbooks for academic quality and political bias, which also found multiple editions of Houghton Mifflin’s Across the Centuries to be filled with Islamic preaching. They have also drawn attention to Prentice Hall’s textbook, World Cultures: A Global Mosaic as “a vehicle for Muslim propaganda”:

Long passages in World Cultures are devoted to promoting Islam, to making American students embrace Islamic religious beliefs, and to winning converts for Allah. In these passages, Muslim myths are disguised as historical information, Muslim superstitions are disguised as facts…

Palm Beach County has already forced the reprint of World History once for Muslim bias and inaccuracies. The question on my mind is whether or not this is the reprinted book or the old version. As reported in April:

Dr. William Saxton, Chairman of Citizens for National Security told The Report Card that as result of CFNS efforts – and for the first time as far as anyone related to these K-12 textbook issues knows – a major publisher, Pearson Prentice Hall, had to correct the content of an already printed flawed textbook that it intended to sell to a huge school district in Florida, and reprint it, before it could be purchased. Dr. Saxton earned his doctorate in Applied Physics from Harvard and spent much of his career in the United States Intelligence community. He founded CFNS as a result of concerns that Islamic terror organizations Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood were spreading misinformation and indoctrinating students in American schools.

The new 2013 high-school history book, “World History,” was slated for delivery to Palm Beach County (PBC) students for use at the beginning of the current school year. CFNS documented Islam bias and misinformation in a report co-authored by Dr. Saxton and Report Card Publisher William Korach. That 92-page report, published February 2012 documented Islam-biased errors and misinformation in 25 textbooks in Florida. CFNS participated in a marathon meeting with PBC curriculum specialists and a Pearson representative to delineate their concerns and recommend corrections. Following that, Dr. Saxton testified about the book’s bias before the PBC School Board. After further review, the Board concurred with the CFNS position, and determined that much of the textbook’s contentious language be revised, consistent with CFNS’s recommendations, as a condition for purchase.

You must consider how liberal leaning our school system has already become and then consider how bad a book must have to be for reprints to be demanded and questions to be raised.

What the hell is going on at Prentice Hall? Maybe there is a clue on their own website. Prentice Hall is owned by Pearson. Here is a quote that is the very first line on their about page:

Pearson is the world’s leading PreK-20 educational publishing company, dedicated to working with educators to change the way America thinks.

Ding. Ding. Ding. We have a winner.

Since when was it decided that Americans needed to change the way they think? That’s Progressive talk. And for those of you who don’t know… Progressive is a politically correct way of saying communist.

Don’t be fooled America.

This is real and it has been in play for a long time.

The Return Of The Kings Of The North And South

“At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships” (Daniel 11:40)

Several times over the last few years I've made mention of my belief that two powerful and opposing forces of Biblical times were in the process of re-emerging to become part of the increasingly complex situation in the Middle East. These two adversaries are called the King of the North and the King of the South in Daniel 11 and recent events show they've both taken a giant step toward fulfilling their  prophetic destiny.

My most recent study on this subject is not quite two years old and appears under the title “The Three Kings Of Daniel 11”.  It's named that way because in their end times appearance, the Kings of the North and South will not only oppose each other, they will both oppose the anti-Christ, who is called “the King who exalts himself” in Daniel 11:36.

Daniel 11:5-35 is a summary of the historical times of these two kings as they battled each other for control of what we now call the Middle East through several generations. They finally disappeared as the Romans were coming into prominence.  It's amazing to consider that Daniel wrote about all of them before any of them were born, squeezing over 100 historically documented prophecies into the first 35 verses of Daniel 11. 

Daniel 11:36-45 are still future to us and require the re-emergence of these kings to be fulfilled. I believe in  our current headlines we're seeing signs that they're preparing to rise and take their positions on the end times stage.

What Makes You Say That?
In my Mid East Update I reported that Saudi Arabia gave the Egyptian Army substantial assistance in its successful overthrow of the government.  We now know that the United Arab Emirates and Kuwaitt  were also involved.   I mentioned that this concerns the US because of the possibility that these countries are banding together into a Sunni Muslim confederacy to oppose Iran. There's a likelihood that they will support and even assist Israel in destroying Iran's nuclear program.  (The US is not opposed to a Sunni confederacy, but has been trying to build one around Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood in a revival of the Ottoman Empire.  Saudi Arabia and Egypt have become too independent for American tastes.) 

Now, several Middle Eastern news services are reporting that Iran is working to build a Shiite Muslim block  to counter this move by the Sunnis.  It appears that this block will consist of Iran, Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon. This helps to explain why Iran is so heavily invested in Syria and Hizballah. Iran has sent billions of dollars in advanced weaponry to both and has thousands of soldiers stationed in Syria as well.

And just this week the Syrian state news agency SANA reported that an agreement was signed in Tehran by the Iranian and Syrian central banks, granting Syria a credit line worth $3.6 billion for oil. Damascus will repay Tehran by providing the Iranians “investment opportunities of various kinds” in Syria. According to the mideast intelligence service DEBKAfile, Iran is moving step by step to control the Syrian economy and advance its scheme for drawing Syria, Iraq and eventually Hizballah-dominated Lebanon into a Shiite economic bloc. 

Some sources go even farther, claiming that Iran already controls Lebanon through its “wholly owned subsidiary” Hizballah.  And recently a senior Iranian cleric boldly stated,  “Syria is the 35th province [of Iran] and a strategic province for us.”

A recent article in Commentary magazine confirmed that “Iran is not only arming and training President Bashar Assad’s forces, both regular and irregular, but it has also sent Hizballah, Iranian-backed Iraqi militias, and units of its own Revolutionary Guards Corps to join his fight against the Sunni rebels. Add in the billions of dollars it has given Assad to prop up his regime, and it’s clear that if he survives, Syria will be another wholly-owned Iranian subsidiary.

"Whether Assad stays or goes is becoming irrelevant," a diplomat in the region told Khaled Yacoub Oweis of Reuters. "The conflict is now bigger than him, and it will continue without him. Iran is calling the shots." 

And finally, the on-line magazine “Iran Focus” confirmed that Assad is not the issue. “Iran is primarily concerned with maintaining the Shiite crescent — which includes Shiites from Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria.”

History Repeating Itself
It can't be a coincidence that these Shiite nations occupy the same territory formerly controlled by the King of the North, just as the Sunni Muslim block occupies territory formerly held by the King of the South. 

While there are sub-groups on both sides, Sunnis make up about 80% of the world's Muslim population with Shiites comprising the remaining 20%. Many people who aren't familiar with Islam don't realize that the relationship between the two groups has not always been friendly, even when they would appear to have common goals.  For example, after the 2006 Lebanon war, when much of the Arab world was claiming victory, Osama bin Laden (Sunni) publically criticized Hizballah (Shiite) for  “jumping the gun” and attacking Israel before the time was right. 


Current examples of sectarian strife can be seen in the fact that according to Gulf News, Hamas (Sunni) has lost the financial support of Iran (Shiite) for backing the rebels in Syria against the Assad government and has been told to switch sides if they want their aid restored.

Also, in the US there's a fear that 10 years of “progress” in Iraq is being undone by Sunni/Shiite  violence.  Iraq has a Shiite majority being governed by a Sunni minority.  The American advisors have never successfully addressed that issue and are now concerned that Iraq may soon erupt in civil war.  Most observers see a not so subtle Iranian influence at work behind this.

The rivalry between these two sects of Islam goes back to the death of Mohammed when there was a battle over the right to succeed him and continues to this day.  Most of their beliefs are identical but there are some differences.  For example, they both believe in al Mahdi, but they don't agree on who he will be or what he will do.  Shiites believe he's the 12th Imam, who will appear at a time of great crisis in the world to establish the Islamic Caliphate, or Kingdom, and enforce world wide conversion to Islam.  Sunnis believe he will revive the faith, but will not necessarily be connected with the end of the world.

What Does That Mean?
A growing number of observers believe this rivalry could easily escalate into an all out Islamic war for control of the Middle East in a repeat of ancient history. Even though both sects have the capture of Jerusalem as their ultimate goal, each one wants to be the group that does it, and they're apparently willing to fight each other for the privilege.  The Bedouin saying,  "I against my brother, my brothers and I against my cousins, then my cousins and I against strangers" comes to mind. 

Of course, anyone familiar with the years of Catholic vs. Protestant strife in Northern Ireland knows that sectarian violence is not unique to Islam.  But what would cause both Sunnis and Shiites to attack the anti-Christ as Daniel clearly prophesied (Daniel 11:40)?  Especially if, as I believe, Islam will be the end times religion and alMahdi will likely turn out to be the anti-Christ?

We could understand their difference of opinion over who alMahdi will be to cause one or the other to oppose him, but what could cause both to do so?

I think the Bible gives us the answer.

“He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God” (2 Thes. 2:4)

“The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire” (Rev. 17:16)

Satan has always used used man's need for a religion to help him achieve his goal of world dominance, but eventually he will have to make himself the only object of worship, unencumbered by any religious system.  And just like the Jews were incited to murder when Jesus claimed to be God, so these Islamic kings will be outraged when the one they thought was the promised servant of Allah makes the claim that he actually is Allah. 

In Islam there's a saying, “Allah was not begotten nor does he beget.” When the anti-Christ proclaims himself to be God he will be committing blasphemy against both Allah and God.  And when he and his 10 kings move to destroy Islam, it's easy to see how the kings of the North and South, with massive armies under their command, could forget their differences and unite against him. 

Students of Biblical history will recognize in this a strategy frequently employed by God, that of turning his enemies against each other.  You can find examples in Judges 7:22, 1 Sam 14:20, 2 Chron. 20:23, Ezek. 38:21, and Zech. 14:13.

Of course there's a lot of ground to cover between where we are now and the fulfillment of Daniel 11:40.  Thankfully the Church won't be here for most of the journey.  My purpose is to alert us to the possibility that one more sign of the times could be in the early stages of fulfillment. Because every sign of the times we see strengthens our conviction that we're living in the times of the signs.  You can almost hear the footsteps of the Messiah.  08-03-13

Islamist Super-Bloc Begins Forming in the Middle East
 Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood are looking to end the war in Syria with the goal of forming an Islamist super-bloc with Iran and Hezbollah.

A monumental strategic shift is taking place in the Middle East as an Islamist super-bloc is forming. Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood

 are making up with Iran and Hezbollah. Egypt and the Gulf states are forming their own alliance. The U.S. outreach to Iran and the Brotherhood has left it missing from the equation.
The Syrian civil war has pitted the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey against Iran, Hezbollah, Iraq and the Syrian regime since 2011. Now, with a bloody stalemate resulting in consequences each side fears, the two sides are looking for ways to make amends.
Turkey has been trying to move its relationship with Iran past the ancient Ottoman-Persian rivalry for years. The Erdogan government gave secret U.S. intelligence to Iran and in early 2012, informed Iran about ten of its nationals meeting with Israeli intelligence inside Turkey.
One of the architects of the Turkish-Iranian relationship is Turkish intelligence chief Hakan Fidan, who the Israeli Defense Minister described as a “friend of Iran.” Some Israeli officials privately refer to him as the “station chief in Ankara” for Iranian intelligence.
These statements about Fidan’s role is not hype. The recent U.S. ambassador to Turkey and Iraq, James Jeffrey, put it this way: “Hakan Fidan is the face of the new Middle East.”
Until recently, the bitter civil war in Syria blunted Fidan’s aspirations. Turkey’s ideological ally, the Muslim Brotherhood, is trying to overthrow Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, Iran’s most valuable ally. But now both sides are exhausted. The war is costly, bloody and no one is gaining anything by its continuance.
Turkey sees Al-Qaeda affiliates taking control of the Syrian rebel cause and Kurdish militias gaining control near the border. The cost of overthrowing Assad would be exorbitant. Al-Qaeda and the Kurds would be even stronger and sectarian warfare will exasperate the refugee crisis.
Assad’s Iranian and Russians backers want him (or at least his regime) to remain in power for strategic reasons, but both have to realize that his forces are overstretched and cannot hope to reclaim the entirety of the country.
High-level Turkish and Iranian officials are meeting with the expressed purpose of ending the sectarian conflict. An unnamed senior Turkey official told Reuters, “Both Iran and Turkey are at a point where they think they can work together on Syria.”
Turkey has become the “regional hub for the Muslim Brotherhood’s international organization.” It also hosts a Hamas command post.  If Turkey is reaching out to Iran, it must be assumed that the Brotherhood is doing the same.
In late September, it was revealed that the Muslim Brotherhood is trying to unite Islamists into an international “Islamic Council.” At the same time, representatives from Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah were meeting and agreed to form an "axis of resistance."
Hamas has been in a dire financial crisis since losing Iran’s support and its stress is only going to increase as the Egyptian government continues to shutdown Hamas’ smuggling tunnels on the Sinai-Gaza border. The Iranians and Hezbollah are spending a ton of resources to save Assad from the Brotherhood-supported rebels. Both sides have major incentives to reach a settlement.
Economics and resources also play a role in the Turkish-Iranian relationship. Their trade is due to reach $30 billion by 2015. Iran wants Turkey to replace the pro-West United Arab Emirates as a re-exporting center, and Turkey wants to be a bigger customer for Iranian natural gas.
A major breakthrough happened when Hamas Deputy Politburo Chief Moussa Abu Marzook publicly criticized another Hamas leader, Khaled Mashaal, for supporting the Syrian rebels. Marzook emphasized that Hamas has no official relationship with the rebels.
Hamas leaders began calling for renewed violence against Israel, Mashaal showed up in Turkey and a planned trip to Iran was reported. It was subsequently reported that Iran postponed the visit, but there have been secret high-level visits from other Hamas officials recently.
Another important player is the U.S. “ally” Qatar. It is firmly in the camp of Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Qatari Emir is making overtures to the new President of Iran.
Saudi Arabia is leading a third bloc that opposes Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood. The United Arab Emirates has loudly lobbied for such a coalition. Other members include Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait, Yemen and Oman. The North African countries of Libya, Morocco and Algeria are likely participants, as is Tunisia once the Brotherhood’s ousting there is completed.
This is the bloc that is the least hostile to U.S. interests and Israel. It’s been long reported that these countries privately welcome an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear program. Their officials are holding secret meetings in Israel.
Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia is a Sharia

-based Salafist

 state that cannot be expected to support Muslim moderates with a diametrically-opposed vision. The Saudis are supporting so-called “moderate” Salafists in Syria to compete with Al-Qaeda.
A rebel commander says that “Saudi tribal figures have been making calls on behalf of Saudi intelligence” and spreading money around to buy loyalty.
Approximately 50 rebel groups near Damascus announced they were uniting into the “Army of Islam” and would fight for a country solely based on Sharia. It is suspected that the Saudis engineered this in order to steer the rebel cause.
There may be a difference of opinion within this bloc regarding Syria. Egypt has not taken a clear stance. It isn’t adding its voice to the Saudis’ loud demands that Assad step down, but it isn’t dissenting either.
Where does the U.S. fit into all this? Nowhere.
The U.S. support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has alienated the majority of Egyptians. After the Obama Administration suspended a significant amount of military aid, the Egyptian government embraced Russia as an alternative.
The U.S. outreach to Iran and minimal support for the Syrian rebels has caused Saudi officials to talk of a "major shift" away from America. Secretary of State John Kerry tried to soothe the Saudis with a visit and a joint statement reiterating that Assad must be removed from power.
The Saudis are eager to convince Russia to end its support for Assad in exchange for a secret oil deal and strategic alliance. The Saudis may also move aggressively towards China; a country that has been a bigger customer for Saudi exports than the U.S. since 2009. It is apparent that Asia is going to become the most important customer for Saudi oil.
If the Turkey-led Sunni Islamists and the Iran-led Shiite Islamists divide Syria and agree to a ceasefire, a formidable cross-sectarian Islamist bloc will form. The Saudis, Egyptians and other Gulf states already see the U.S. as an unreliable partner and are looking to Russia and China for help.
This is the consequence of the ill-conceived American policy in the region.

The Return of the Twelfth Imam

A prophecy has been fulfilled.

In a fascinating article for FrontPage Magazine titled “Now the Twelfth Imam Can Come,” scholar of Islam Robert Spencer provides a crash course on the nature of Twelver Shi’ite theology, with particular reference to a nuclearizing Iran. Shi’ites believe in the return of the so-called Twelfth Imam who is descended from Mohammed’s son-in-law Ali ibn Abni Talib, the fourth caliph assassinated in 661 in a succession war, after which the split between Sunnis and Shi’ites eventually became permanent. As Spencer explains, the Shi’ites continued a line of imams, “members of Muhammad’s household and his prophetic heirs. Each one in turn, over two centuries, was poisoned.…According to the traditions of Twelver Shi’ism, the official religion of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the twelfth of these Imams, a boy of five years old, disappeared under mysterious and disputed circumstances in the year 874 – but remained alive.” Though communicating with the world through various agents, he entered the state of “occultation” in 941, promising to return when the time would be propitious.

The reigning authority on Twelver Shi’ism is the historian Emmanuel Sivan, who in his magisterial volume on the subject, Radical Islam: Medieval Theology and Modern Politics, warned that an integral part of Shi’a Islam’s belief and thought involves the initiating of a planetary conflagration. This belief system posits that Allah’s kingdom will be established on earth by the Twelfth or Hidden Imam, also known as the Mahdi, whose advent can be hastened by creating the right set of circumstances: friction and misunderstanding among the nations and violent upheavals in a welter of blood and fire.
Incredulous westerners who would pass this off as merely a quaint belief to be taken with a grain of salt, or indeed with a whole salt shaker, should reconsider. Sivan spends many pages describing and analyzing the Shi’ite vision of an “ideal, legitimate state to be instituted by its leader, the Hidden Imam.” Over the course of history, he writes, a “minority of Shi’ites, quite substantial and dangerous at times, would move from pessimistic idealism to an optimistic brand of the same approach—the imam’s arrival is imminent, God’s kingdom is bound to be brought upon earth by this messiah (mahdi), and one should help precipitate its descent by armed revolt.” The Mahdi’s arrival has been eagerly anticipated and rumor has it that Iran’s former president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad—like Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, a fervent believer in the Mahdi’s parousia—widened a boulevard in Tehran to welcome the savior with public celebrations. This may be a canard, but even were it the case, Ahmadinejad need not have bothered. That was yesterday; today is a new beginning.
What the world does not yet know is precisely that of which the Iranian mullahs are now gleefully aware, namely, that the Twelfth Imam has already returned and is hard at work arranging the coming apocalypse. According to an occult scripture, unearthed in a clay jar at an excavation works near the Arak nuclear site, that only the ayatollahs and a few select individuals (like the present writer) have been privileged to study, the Mahdi has fulfilled all the signs and portents that announce his presence.*
* Labelled the Arak Codex #190001, this document reposes in the Inscriptions Department of the Malik National Museum of Iran in Tehran. 
He is half black, half white. He is tall and strides with a lope. He possesses dead eyes and prominent ears. His background is both obscure and exotic. He is persuasively eloquent and is adept at saying one thing while doing another. His head swivels from side to side when addressing the multitudes, as if reading from prepared texts no doubt lowered from on high and inscribed by the Lord or one of his angels. He gives the distinct impression of being a man-child. He is supremely confident and exudes a certain boyish charm many find irresistible. He is devoted to popular sports involving holes and nets as emblems of ensnaring. He bows frequently in false humility, cajoling the high and mighty of the earth, yet brooks no objection to his will when dissent is offered. He is to be found in many different places from one day to another. He is surrounded by loyal minions, many of whom appear to be imbeciles, who do his bidding without question or scruple. He occupies the seat of power.
Let me be very clear about this, for there are those who cannot bring themselves to confront the evidence of the Twelfth Imam’s uncloaking that I, privy to the discovery of the mystical codex through means I am forbidden to reveal, now set before them. All his actions are directed toward igniting the flames that wait to engulf the world. He diligently undermines the laws, security and prosperity of the people he ostensibly represents, and turns one against the other, sowing discord among the populace. He betrays his friends and allies and renders them vulnerable to international predators. He sponsors and supports warlike groups and aggressive regimes that seek world hegemony. He is an undeclared enemy of the Jewish people and the Jewish state. He is a great friend to Islam in its march toward imposing a caliphate upon unsuspecting nations. He welcomes the black flag and the yellow flag into the sanctum of domestic authority, distributing office among his Muslim acolytes. He smiles upon the ayatollahs and signs agreements that facilitate their holy designs to kindle universal violence and establish God’s kingdom on earth.
He has been schooled at the feet of prophets and sages and learned from the masters of canon and creed. He is the repository of sacred teachings and potent incantations, and is adept at uttering sonorous phrases that please as they befuddle. He is the embodiment of consecrated, numinous and venerable doctrine. He is no longer Hidden but exults among us in all his glory. He is the bringer of chaos and the last days. He will inaugurate a new world order.
Doubters and skeptics must give way. The Twelfth Imam has returned, confirmed in his exaltation by innumerable tokens and crests and auguries. Devastation will precede him and resurrection will surely follow in his wake. The infidel shall be destroyed, destroyed utterly, and the believer shall rise from the smoldering ruins in triumph and gladness of heart. All this shall come to pass for it is written.
He is the Mahdi.

DHS Gave Muslim Brotherhood VIP Treatment, No TSA Pat Downs

Document reveals delegation was allowed to skip secondary screening

A newly released document obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request confirms that the State Department ordered the Department of Homeland Security to spare members of the Muslim Brotherhood traveling to the US in 2012 a TSA pat down or any kind of secondary screening.

The one page document (PDF), obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, shows that members of a Muslim Brotherhood delegation traveling through Minneapolis Airport, New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and Dulles Airport were handed expedited entry known as “port courtesy,” which is normally reserved for high ranking government officials and dignitaries. At the time, the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate Mohamed Morsi, later deposed, had not been elected president.

The document contains four separate entries which include a directive that Muslim Brotherhood members, “not be pulled into secondary upon arrival at a point of entry.” As well as a TSA pat down, secondary screening involves carry on luggage being inspected by hand and the use of puffer explosive detectors.

Two following entries confirm that Muslim Brotherhood members traveled through both JFK and Dulles Airports “smoothly” and “without incident” after the DHS had been alerted about “port courtesies”.

Another entry reads; “MB delegate departure: In response to a request from the MB, the desk worked with the office of Foreign Missions to arrange for TSA to escort the last member of the visiting MB delegation, Abdul Mawgoud Dardery, through security at Minneapolis Airport and JFK Airport on April 15. We did not hear anything further from the MB, so we assume the departure went smoothly. In the coming days, we’re going to write down a list of procedures for dealing with MB visits to the United States.”

The delegate was given privileged access despite one of their members being linked to a previous child pornography investigation in the United States. In addition, the Muslim Brotherhood, which has now been declared a terrorist organization by the Egyptian government after bombing a police HQ last month, is closely affiliated with Al-Qaeda and has long been cited as the foundational inspiration for both Al-Qaeda and Islamic Jihad.

The IPT also highlights the fact that individuals traveling from Syria to give speaking tours in the United States, people like Sheik Osama al-Rifai, that have openly endorsed Al-Qaeda militant groups under the banner of the the Islamic Front, are being handed visas by the State Department with no questions asked.

While completely innocent Americans continue to be subjected to invasive TSA grope down procedures and placed on no fly lists for no reason whatsoever, members of a group with direct links to terrorism were given VIP treatment by the State Department, the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security.

Leading Iranian ayatollah: Islamic messiah ‘will behead Western leaders’

A leading ayatollah of Iran’s Islamic regime is promising that Western leaders will be executed by the Islamic messiah, the state-owned media outlet Mehr news reported Saturday.

“When Imam Zaman ['Mahdi,' the last Shiite Imam] comes, he will behead the Western leaders,” warned Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani, the interim Friday prayer leader of Tehran and a member of the Assembly of Experts, the body that chooses the supreme leader. “However, Imam will not harm the oppressed nations,” he said.

The Shiite clerical establishment in Iran believes that at the end of times, the 12th Imam, Mahdi, a ninth century prophet, will reappear with Jesus Christ at his side, kill all the infidels and raise the flag of Islam in all four corners of the world.

A video revealed in 2011, “The Coming Is Upon Us,” showed regime intentions: change in the Middle East, destruction of Israel and the coming of Mahdi. The video, produced by the regime, was to be distributed in the Middle East.

Is Jesus Appearing to Muslims to Convert Them?

 In the spirit of the New Testament command "test everything; hold fast what is good" (1Thess. 5:21) we approach today's question: Is Jesus really appearing to Muslims to convert them?

Extraordinary stories about this phenomenon keep appearing around the world lately. Many Christians want to rejoice that lost souls are being saved, but we also want to rejoice in what is true. It's not a question meant to offend. It's simply raised by millions of Christians in light of the great value that God places upon His written Word.

For valid reasons, followers of Christ throughout history have held subjective, personal stories at arm's length by comparison. After the original Apostles died and the canon of Scripture was completed, the foundation of the church was set (Eph. 2:20). Many Christians believe that visions and continuing prophecy undermine that foundation (see below). But should these "Christ vision" experiences of Muslim background believers be viewed differently? If so, on what grounds?

Nabeel Qureshi, a popular speaker and author, says in his book and online testimony that visions were instrumental in his conversion from Islam to faith in Christ. And Open Doors USA recently reported a remarkable conversion story of a former Muslim man in Iran named Taher. He would beat his family and even threatened to kill them because of their faith in Jesus. After Taher's family fled abroad, time passed and in his growing despair he cried out: "I will believe in the God who reveals Himself to me." According to his story (here), the living God answered his prayers through a dream.

Biblical scholar, Dennis McBride, evaluates this issue in great depth here at www.biblicalintegrity.org. In one standout section he writes:

    If the Isa of Muslim dreams is not the Jesus of the Bible, who is he?
    One option is a false Christ appearing as an angel of light (2 Cor 11:4, 13-15). But what could the enemy of our souls hope to gain from doing that? Consider this: we have already seen that people with sinful motives have preached Christ for selfish gain (Phil 1:15-18), so it is reasonable to envision the author of pride and selfishness doing the same and in the process potentially:

    • Diverting worship from Christ to himself, which has been his goal from the beginning (Isa 14:12-14; Matt 4:9).

    • Deceiving Muslims into thinking they are worshiping the true Jesus when, in fact, they are worshiping the person in their dreams. All the accounts I have read unquestioningly equate Isa with Jesus.

    • Diluting the primacy, centrality and authority of God’s Word by establishing faith based on subjective revelations and experiences (John 20:24-29).

    • Creating expectations of evangelism linked to visitations from Jesus. (Some Muslim outreach strategies now include praying that Isa will appear to even more Muslims so more will be saved.)

    • Creating expectations of additional visitations from Jesus, such as during times of persecution, and the inevitable disillusionment and confusion that result when those expectations are not met.

    • Causing division within the Body of Christ over this issue.

    I mention those to illustrate how the enemy could benefit from a phenomenon that on the surface may seems like a kingdom divided. I have not concluded that visions of Isa are necessarily demonic, nor do I believe Muslims are not being genuinely saved. But Muslims who come to Christ do so in the same way everyone else throughout church history has: the Holy Spirit opens their hearts to the truth (Acts 16:14). But the spiritual harm that can result from connecting their faith to subjective mystical experiences can be great, as certain parallel revelatory claims of the Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements (as well as various cultic groups) have demonstrated over the years.

The question of whether these visions of Jesus are true or untrue can't be resolved in a short article like this. However, it should be understood that this is a debatable issue. Weigh both sides. Pray for wisdom. Above all, recognize the need for spreading the gospel and be active in doing so.

Your turn: what do you think? Is Jesus appearing in visions and dreams to Muslims?

Iran Supreme Leader: The Shiite Islamic Messiah Is Coming To Free The World

Iran's supreme leader is promising a world free of infidels and nonbelievers with the coming of the Islamic messiah, Mahdi, a 9th-century descendant of the prophet Mohammad whom the Shiites refer to as the 12th Imam.

"The coming of Imam Zaman [Mahdi] is the definite promise by Allah," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a speech Wednesday on the anniversary of Mahdi's birthday at an exhibition of research and historical documents on the 12th Imam.

Khamenei said one of Allah's promises was that an Islamic revolution would come to Iran. "Who would have thought that in this sensitive region and in this important country, with a regime [run by Shah Pahlavi] and supported by the international powers, a revolution based on religion and Sharia [law] would take place?" Khamenei asked.

The Shiite clerical establishment ruling Iran believes that Iran's 1979 revolution was a precursor to the coming of Mahdi, during which all infidels will be killed and the flag of Islam will be raised in all four corners of the world.

"The caravan of humanity from the day of creation has been moving through the windings of the hard maze [of life] ... to reach an open path, [and] this open path is that of the time of the coming of Imam Mahdi," he said. "The awaiting for the coming is a hopeful and powerful wait, providing the biggest opening for the Islamic society."

The supreme leader's representative in the Revolutionary Guards, Ali Saeedi, in a meeting with Guard commanders on Friday, said the coming of Imam Mahdi cannot take place under the current circumstances, and in order for that to happen the Middle East needs to witness major changes. To create those changes, there is a need for "regional preparedness" and that the Islamic revolution in Iran "without a doubt will be connected to the worldwide revolution of Imam Mahdi."

The secret documentary "The Coming Is Upon Us," produced by the regime for the preparedness of its forces, Hezbollah and other Shiite jihadists and revealed in 2011, covers the centuries-old hadiths by Mohammad and his descendants in providing a timeline of events and what needs to happen for the coming of Mahdi.

The warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan is one example of what the hadiths predicted, according to Shiite theology. The fighting in Syria and the current infighting in Iraq and even the likely intrusion of the Islamic Republic's army into Iraq to counter the Sunni rebellion, as per Shiite understanding of the hadiths, point to the imminent coming of Mahdi, but not before Israel is destroyed.

Iran's clerical rulers believe the figure "Seyed Khorasani," who at the end of times facilitates the coming and passes the flag of Islam to Imam Mahdi, is the current supreme leader of the regime, Ayatollah Khamenei.

Jim Garrow Says Muslim Terrorists To Unleash 9/11 Shopping Mall Bombing Attacks On America

"Obama has allowed thousands of Muslim terrorists to come in through our southern border

2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee  Dr. Jim Garrow is a man that doesn’t shy away from controversy. He leapt in to the public consciousness in 2013 when he shockingly claimed he was told by a top military veteran that the Obama administration’s “litmus test” for new military leaders is whether or not they will obey an order to fire on U.S. citizens.

Then on our radio show of October 6, 2013, Dr. Garrow dropped another bombshell. He made the amazing revelation – on our show for the first time anywhere –  that he had, in fact, spent 45 years as a covert CIA operative. The revelations didn’t stop there, either. In that same broadcast, he also revealed that Andrew Breitbart and novelist Jim Clancy were targeted assassinations by the CIA.

Now Dr. Jim has a new revelation of an upcoming Muslim terrorist attack on Americans in America, and he is so sure of his information that he says “my sources on this are impeccable. I lay my 100% record of reliability on the line.”  Here is the shocking revelation Dr. Jim made on his Facebook page today:

The target will be shopping malls. The method will be with explosive devices meant to inflict suffering and death and to wound as many as possible. This is terrorism in its lowest form. The purpose is to inflict fear in the hearts of Americans through this targeting of where we go to shop and relax. The date will be a significant one for the Islamists.  The event will happen simultaneously across America at hundreds of locations (note the number). The police, DHS, and security services throughout the nation should be warned and take appropriate action.

Garrow says that it will happen on a date that “is important for Islamists”. If I had to hazard a guess I would say 9/11. Will this actually happen, is such a plan really in the works? Jim Garrow is a regular guest on our radio show, a personal friend and a brother in Christ. He has staked his entire credibility on this information being true and accurate. We believe him, and have published this story as a public warning."

Islamic State message to America: 'we will drown all of you in blood'

The Islamic State militant group that has seized large parts of Iraq and drawn the first American air strikes since the end of the occupation in 2011 has warned the United States it will attack Americans "in any place" if the raids hit its militants.

The video, which shows a photograph of an American who was beheaded during the U.S. occupation of Iraq and victims of snipers, featured a statement which said in English "we will drown all of you in blood".

U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq have helped Kurdish fighters take back some territory captured by Islamic State militants, who have threatened to march on Baghdad.

The latest advance by the Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot, sent tens of thousands of members of the Yazidi ethnic minority and Christians fleeing for their lives and alarmed the Baghdad government and its Western allies.

Unlike al-Qaeda, Islamic State has so far focused on seizing land in Iraq and Syria for its self-proclaimed caliphate, not spectacular attacks on Western targets.

U.S. President Barack Obama said at a news conference on Monday that the Islamic State posed a threat to Iraq and the entire region.

The Army Of Black Flags

The Mahdi’s ascendancy to power is said to be preceded by an army from the east who will be carrying black flags or banners of war.  Sheikh Kabbani states:

Hadith indicate that black flags coming from the area of Khorasan will signify the appearance of the Mahdi is nigh.  Khorasan is in todays Iran, and some scholars have said that this hadith means when the black flags appear from Central Asia, i.e. in the direction of Khorasan, then the appearance of the Mahdi is imminent. 17

Another tradition states that:

The Messenger of Allah said: The black banners will come from the East and their hearts will be as firm as iron.  Whoever hears of them should join them and give allegiance, even if it means crawling across snow. 18

In Islam there are two flags.  One is white and one is black.  Written across both flags in Arabic are the words, “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger”.  The white flag is called Al-Liwaa and serves as the sign for the leader of the Muslim army and is the flag of the Islamic State.  The black flag is called Ar-Raya and is used by the Muslim army. It is also called the flag of jihad, and is carried into battle.  One flag is governmental and the other is a military flag. 19 When Muhammad returned to his home city of Mecca after being exiled for eight years, he returned as a conqueror.  With him were ten thousand Muslim soldiers.  They carried with them black flags.  On the flags was one word written in Arabic: punishment. 20

I was once talking to a group of young Muslim men and asking them some questions.  I asked them if the obvious superior militaries of America and Israel compared to the militaries of any Islamic nations were a source of difficulty for many Muslims.  One of these men then became very angry at my question and snapped out, “You Americans and Zionists better get ready, because the black flags are coming!”  At the time, I had no idea what he was talking about.  Later I learned the meaning.

Top U.S. Military Officer: ISIS Has ‘Apocalyptic End-of-Days Vision’ That Must Be Defeated

During a recent press conference, America’s top military officer asserted that the Islamic terrorist group ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, has an ‘apocalyptic end-of-days strategic vision’ that must be defeated by a coalition of forces.

Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made the statements on Thursday as both he and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel discussed concerns about the group.

“This is an organization that has an apocalyptic, end-of-days strategic vision and which will eventually have to be defeated,” he said.

Dempsey remarked that ISIS must be fought in Syria, but that various groups must join together to defeat the terrorist organization.

“[C]an they be defeated without addressing that part of their organization which resides in Syria? The answer is no. That will have to be addressed on both sides of what is essentially at this point a nonexistent border,” he said, referring to the Islamic group’s takeover of parts of both Syria and Iraq. “And that will come when we have a coalition in the region that takes on the task of defeating ISIS over time.”

“They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded,” Hagel added. “This is beyond anything that we’ve seen. So we must prepare for everything.”

As previously reported, Muslims believe that in the 10th century, the Islamic Mahdi—or redeemer—went into hiding, but will appear again to make all things right with the world. According to the website Answering Islam, Muslims also claim that Jesus will return as a follower of Islam and will establish the religion on the earth.

“Muslims believe that after Allah miraculously delivered Jesus from death, He was assumed into heaven alive in a similar fashion to the Biblical narrative regarding Elijah,” the site outlines. “Since then, Muslims believe, Jesus has remained with Allah and has been awaiting His opportunity to return to the earth to finish His ministry and complete His life.”

“While the Mahdi … is clearly seen as being a superior to Jesus, Jesus is still said to be a leader of the Muslim Community [upon His return],” it continues. “According to the Islamic traditions, Jesus’ primary purpose will be to oversee the institution and the enforcement of the Islamic Shariah law all over the world.”

Nadeem Walayat of the Market Oracle echoed these sentiments.

“What ISIS and virtually all Muslims anticipate is for Jesus to return on the white Eastern Minaret of Damascus (Syria) gliding in on the wings of two angels and then through much blood and carnage will convert the whole world to Islam including killing all of the Jews, break all of the crosses and live as a Muslim for 40 years, before dying and thus heralding the final countdown to Judgment Day when Muslims expect to enter paradise,” he explained.

ISIS specifically seeks to establish an Islamic State in the areas that it conquers, placing the regions under Islamic rule.

Earlier this month, VICE News released a video documentary showing Abu Mosa, a spokesman for ISIS threatening to retaliate if the U.S. interferes with its establishment of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

“I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” he said. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.”

“We will humiliate them everywhere, Allah willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” Mosa declared.

Video purports to show beheading of U.S. journalist

BEIRUT (AP) — An Internet video posted online Tuesday purported to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State group, which called it retribution for continued U.S. airstrikes in Iraq.

Sotloff, 31, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syrian in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley.

Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against the backdrop of an arid Syrian landscape, Sotloff was threatened in that video with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the group in Iraq.

In the video distributed Tuesday and entitled "A Second Message to America," Sotloff appears in a similar jumpsuit before he was purportedly beheaded by an Islamic State fighter.

The Associated Press could not immediately verify the video's authenticity. The SITE Intelligence Group, a U.S. terrorism watchdog, first reported about the video's existence.

The fighter who beheads Sotloff in the video called it retribution for Obama's continued airstrikes against the group in Iraq.

"I'm back, Obama, and I'm back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State ... despite our serious warnings," the fighter said.

At the end of the video, he threatened to kill a third captive, a Briton, David Cathorne Haines.

Sotloff's mother had pleaded for his release last week in a video directed at the Islamic State group.

Addressing the leader of the Islamic State group by name, Shirley Sotloff said in a video her son was "an innocent journalist" who shouldn't pay for U.S. government actions in the Middle East over which he has no control.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he wasn't immediately aware of the purported Sotloff video and wasn't in a position to confirm its authenticity.

"This is something that the administration has obviously been watching very carefully," Earnest said. "Our thoughts and prayers first and foremost are with Mr. Sotloff and Mr. Sotloff's family and those who worked with him."

A man who answered a phone listed in the name of Sotloff's sister hung up when called by the AP.

British 'jihadist' mum threatens to behead Christians: reports

London (AFP) - A middle-aged British mother-of-two and former rock band member has joined jihadists in Syria and wants to behead Christians with a "blunt knife", British media reported.

The reports identified the woman as Sally Jones, 45, from Kent in southeast England, and said she now goes by the name Sakinah Hussain, or Umm Hussain al-Britani.

Security experts estimate that hundreds of Britons have gone to the Middle East to join the Islamic State (IS) militant group, the most brutal to emerge out of Syria's bloody civil war and the most successful.

The well-funded group controls large swathes of Syria and Iraq and has proved adept at using social media to boost its profile, attract recruits and terrify enemies with images of mass executions and battlefield victories.

Last week another female British jihadist reportedly in Syria, known as Khadijah Dare, purportedly tweeted that she wanted to be the first woman to kill a British or US "terrorist".

The Daily Mail and the Sunday Times alleged that Jones, a convert to Islam, travelled to Syria after an online romance with convicted 20-year-old computer hacker Junaid Hussain, and is now based in the IS stronghold of Raqa.

The Sunday Times said she had tweeted last week saying: "You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railing at raqqa... Come here I'll do it for you!"

Jones' Twitter account was still active on Monday, but could not be independently verified and the post quoted by the newspaper was not on her timeline.

The alleged threat is likely to be taken seriously by British security agencies after an IS video posted online last month showed a man with a British accent appearing to behead US freelance journalist James Foley.

The brazen execution heaped pressure on Prime Minister David Cameron to toughen anti-jihadist security measures, and Britain has since raised its terror alert level to "severe", citing the threat from returning jihadists.

Jones' twitter account banner page features a photo of man who appears to be Junaid Hussain, and another tweet says she and her "husband" -- presumably Junaid -- had been stuck in Syria's northwestern city of Idlib for seven months before joining the "khilafa".

The "khilafa" is the Arabic word for caliphate, a sovereign, religiously led state IS have declared in lands they control.

Cameron is expected to outline tougher measures against jihadist suspects later on Monday.

American extremist from NC reveals his quest to join ISIS
Posted: Sep 03, 2014 1:25 PM PST Updated: Sep 03, 2014 2:23 PM PST

Just a few weeks ago a Catholic-born, American man –- a former military school student, special forces aspirant, law enforcement officer and bodybuilder -- set off on a path far from any he'd envisioned for himself as a kid in North Carolina: on the other side of the world, in Lebanon, he was trying to figure out how to get into Syria and join ISIS, the most radical, bloodthirsty terrorist group of our times.

Don Morgan, 44, said he was answering a higher calling.
Read more on Don Morgan and his quest to join ISIS from NBC News

“It was months and months and months of asking Allah to guide me or to give me the answers I needed,” he told NBC News in an exclusive interview this summer in Beirut.

Morgan answered our questions on camera as asked by a freelance journalist. Morgan believed U.S. and other law enforcement agencies were already on his trail. He said he knew his desire to join ISIS would likely get him into trouble with American authorities.

The factors that drove Morgan to embrace the ideology of the terror group responsible for beheading two American journalists and killing thousands in Syria and Iraq appear to be rooted in more than faith, based on the extensive conversation with Morgan himself and some of those who know him. Personal disappointments and desires and exposure to increasingly radical social media also contributed to Morgan's actions.

Most crucial in Morgan's case may have been the order and discipline that he says he found in practicing Islam –and in ISIS's interpretation of the Muslim faith and its determination to spread it in the form of a caliphate.

“My reason for the support of ISIS is because they've proven time and time again to put Islamic law as the priority and the establishment of an Islamic state as the goal,” Morgan told NBC News.

So in place of the order of a military life, this southern son turned to a different, brutal, terrifying kind of discipline and belonging.

‘A practicing Muslim'

Just days after Morgan spoke to NBC News, he was picked up by U.S. officials at JFK airport in New York City. He was arrested not for links to terrorism, however, but on a weapons charge: he's accused of trying to sell a rifle online. Morgan had previously been convicted of a felony, so it's illegal for him to possess a gun. An FBI agent testified at a court hearing in Brooklyn that investigators had been following his on-line statements of support for ISIS and his desire to join the group. Morgan pleaded not guilty.

“I think [if I go back to the US] there's a strong possibility that they'll charge me with supporting terrorist organizations and with supporting terrorist activities,” Morgan had said.

But Morgan does not view himself as a terrorist. “I would not classify myself as a radical, but by western definition I would be classified as a radical,” he said. “I just consider myself to be a practicing Muslim.”

ISIS Terrorists May Already Be Operating in a Mexico Border Town Waiting to Enter the US, Intelligence Sources Say

High-level intelligence officials and federal law enforcement are saying that terrorist attacks might be "imminent" for Texas cities and towns located near the U.S.-Mexico border as it's believed the jihadists are already operating in a Mexican border town.

The unnamed officials told Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, that there's good reason to believe Islamic State terrorists are operating in the Mexican border town of Ciudad Juarez, and are planning to use the border to gain entry into the U.S. to carry out their attacks.

Juarez is located just over 8 miles from El Paso, and is a hotbed for violent and narcotic crimes and has been linked to the Islamic militant group, Hezbollah, in previous years. Officials claim that Islamic State jihadists might be setting up shop in Juarez, and plan to attack using car bombs and other vehicle-born improvised explosive devices.

The Judicial Watch report states: "Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to 'carry out an attack on the border,' according to one JW source. 'It's coming very soon,' according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as 'ISIS and al-Qaeda.'"

According to the report, an official said the threat of an attack is so likely that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army Base in El Paso, is being briefed on security measures.

A Kurd of the ethnic minority of Yazidis holds up a placard reading "Stop IS" during a demonstration in Bielefeld, Aug. 9, 2014. Some 10,000 ethnic Kurds of the Yazidis sect, who practice an ancient faith related to Zoroastrianism, protested in the western German city on Saturday against Islamic State militants, who are surging across northern Iraq near the Kurdistan borders in their drive to eradicate unbelievers such as Christians and Yazidis.

Fox News reported Friday that Texas Department of Public Safety released a three-page bulletin that warned Islamic State terrorists have studied and are "expressing an increased interest" in crossing over the border to carry out attacks. The Texas Department of Public Safety came to this conclusion through monitoring Twitter accounts that are believed to be linked to Islamic State jihadists.

The bulletin states: "A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending Aug. 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of the U.S., for terror attack."

An anonymous federal law enforcement official told The Blaze that there has been a long-standing concern about terrorist groups taking advantage of the border.

"Chatter has certainly increased and there's a need to be vigilant," the official told The Blaze. "Al-Qaeda and groups like ISIL have been vocal about the southern border. ISIL is making direct threats now and the situation is changed."

During President Barack Obama's press conference Thursday he said the U.S. doesn't have a concrete plan to combat ISIS.

"I think what I've seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we're at than what we currently are," Obama asserted.

Michael Scheuer, a former Central Intelligence Agency officer, told Fox News that it would be naive to think that Islamic State jihadists would not use the U.S. southern border to their advantage to gain an entry point into the country.

"You'd have to be silly not to take an advantage of that opportunity. You can say many things about the Islamists, but silly they are not," Scheuer said. "They may be brutal, but they are not dumb. We are the dumb ones."

As reported by The Christian Post, Texas Governor Rick Perry said last month that it's a "real possibility" Islamic State terrorists have already used the border to cross into the country due to lack of border security.

"Because of the condition of the border from the standpoint of it not being secured and us not knowing who is penetrating across: individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states. And, I think it is a very real possibility that they have already used that," Perry told attendees at a Heritage Foundation panel on border security.

Scheuer added that it's pretty common to see people from Asia and the Middle East use the U.S.-Mexico border to gain access into the country.

"We are confidently sure that every month a number of Arabs or Pakistanis come across the border illegally in the south," Scheuer told Fox News.

Pupils at 'Trojan Horse' school were shown jihadist video

MPs on the Commons Education Select Committee are told that pupils from a school at the centre of the alleged "Trojan Horse" plot were shown an extremist film by staff


 Pupils from a Birmingham school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” investigation were shown a jihadist promotional video in the classroom, it has been revealed.

Ian Kershaw, who conducted an inquiry on behalf of Birmingham City Council, said the film portrayed images of “violent extremism” had been played to children despite concerns it was “completely unacceptable”.

Giving evidence to MPs on Tuesday, he insisted senior staff at the school – which was not named – failed to discipline the teacher involved after the incident came to light.

Peter Clarke, the former Scotland Yard anti-terror chief, told how a similar film may have been “shown or copied” by a technician within one of Birmingham’s schools.

He also said it was likely that issues had spread beyond schools in the city and called on the Department for Education to “take a very careful look at whether the sorts of things that we found in Birmingham are indeed happening elsewhere”.

Number of ISIS fighters has swelled to as many as 31,500, CIA says

The CIA said Thursday that the number of Islamic State fighters has grown to as many as three times previous estimates, a day after President Obama announced he is drastically expanding the U.S. military campaign against the militants.

A spokesperson for the agency told Fox News that new assessments show that the militant group can muster between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria.

The spokesperson said the new figures were determined after a review of “all-source intelligence reports” on the group from May to August.

The new numbers are a big jump from the agency’s previous estimate that there were at least 10,000 Islamic State fighters.

The spokesperson said the increase is likely due to the militant’s group recruiting gains after its success on the battlefield.

“This new total reflects an increase in members because of stronger recruitment since June following battlefield successes and the declaration of a caliphate, greater battlefield activity, and additional intelligence,” the spokesperson said.

Obama announced Wednesday that he is launching an expanded campaign to destroy the Islamic State, and described a four-point “counterterrorism” strategy to fight the militants.

He authorized airstrikes in Syria, and expanded airstrikes in Iraq, and his administration already is drafting a target list of key leaders of the Islamic State organization.

The Scary Amount of Oil Money ISIS Makes Every Day


President Obama, laying out his strategy last night to defeat the Islamist jihadists known as ISIS, stressed that “it will take time to eradicate a cancer” such as the terrorist group represents in the Middle East.

One hurdle in the way of Obama’s intention to work with allies to “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS (also known as ISIL and the Islamic State) is the brutal organization’s control of oil fields in Iraq and Syria.

ISIS uses that oil wealth to help finance its terror operations.

According to the Iraq Energy Institute, an independent, nonprofit policy organization focused on Iraq’s energy sector, the army of radical Islamists controls production of 30,000 barrels of oil a day in Iraq and 50,000 barrels in Syria.

By selling the oil on the black market at a discounted price of $40 per barrel (compared to about $93 per barrel in the free market), ISIS takes in $3.2 million a day.

Eric Bolling, a co-host of “The Five” on Fox News, cited these numbers on Tuesday’s show to explain “why we can’t wait” to counter ISIS.

The Daily Signal independently confirmed Bolling’s statistics with the Iraq Energy Institute.

James Phillips, veteran expert in Middle Eastern affairs at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal that the revenue gives ISIS a “solid economic base that sustains its continued expansion.”

The oil revenue, which amounts to nearly $100 million each month, allows ISIS to fund its military and terrorist attacks — and to attract more recruits from around the world, including America.

To be successful in counterterrorism efforts, Phillips said,  the U.S. and its allies must “push the Islamic State out of the oil fields it has captured and disrupt its ability to smuggle the oil to foreign markets.”

Here’s how Phillips said the ISIS oil operation works:

    ISIS sells oil to consumers in territory it controls, roughly the size of Maryland, inside Syria and Iraq. The terrorist group also sells oil to a network of smugglers that developed in the 1990s during Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s rule; that network smuggled oil out of Iraq into Turkey to avoid sanctions imposed by the United Nations.

ISIS also reportedly sells oil, through middlemen, to the Assad regime in Syria that is trying to quell rebellion there. When it comes to making a fast buck, the Middle East has no shortage of “strange bedfellows” willing to do business with each other.

In his speech last night, Obama promised to “redouble” efforts to cut off the Islamic State’s funding.

If the U.S. and its allies are to succeed on that front, Phillips said, they should focus “intently on cutting the oil revenues that make up a large portion of that funding.”

Islamic State claims beheading of British hostage: SITE

Washington (AFP) - The Islamic State jihadist group claimed Saturday it beheaded British aid worker David Haines, in what would be the third such execution in recent weeks, after two US journalists were shown murdered.

The Islamist group released a video, available on the website of private terrorism monitoring group SITE, purportedly showing a masked militant beheading Haines.

The two-minute-27-second video titled "A Message to the Allies of America" blames British Prime Minister David Cameron for joining forces with the United States, which has said it is at "war" with the jihadists and launched air strikes against them in Iraq.

"You entered voluntarily into a coalition with the United States against the Islamic State, just as your predecessor Tony Blair did, following a trend amongst our British prime ministers who can't find the courage to say no to the Americans," the executioner says in the video.

The militant, who may be the same man as in the previous videos, told Britain the alliance will "accelerate your destruction" and will drag the British people into "another bloody and unwinnable war."

He also threatens to execute another British hostage.

Scottish-born Haines, 44, was taken hostage in Syria in March 2013 and was threatened in a video released this month depicting the beheading by an IS militant of the US journalist Steven Sotloff.

Haines had been working for the Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED), an international relief charity, and was previously involved in humanitarian work in the Balkans, parts of Africa and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Sotloff and fellow US journalist James Foley had also been kidnapped in Syria. IS released a video claiming Foley's execution on August 19, and Sotloff's two weeks later on September 2.

‘ISIL Is Not Islamic’? Is Obama Completely Insane?

During his nationally televised speech on Wednesday night, Barack Obama told the entire nation that “ISIL is not Islamic”.  Well, then what in the world are they?  Atheists?  And what is Obama going to try to convince us of next?  That the Pope is not Catholic?  Of all of Obama’s lies (and there certainly have been a lot of them), this one might take the cake.  Of course ISIL is Islamic.  That is why they call themselves The Islamic State.  The stated goal of these religious radicals is to establish an Islamic caliphate which will be governed by a single supreme Islamic leader known as a khalifah.  The law in the caliphate will be Islamic sharia law, and anyone not willing to convert to the form of Islam practiced by the Islamic State will be either killed or persecuted intensely.  But because of Barack Obama’s extreme political correctness, he simply cannot admit that the Islamic State has anything to do with Islam.  As a result, he continues to pursue policies that will not solve anything in the Middle East and at this point our foreign policy in the region is a total joke.

When I first heard Obama say that “ISIL is not Islamic”, I thought that I must have misunderstood something.  But he actually said this.  The following is an excerpt directly from the transcript of his speech…

    Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not “Islamic.” No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al Qaeda’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.

And below I have posted a YouTube Video of the section of the speech in which he makes this statement…


The rest of the world is laughing at us today.

When Obama said that ISIL is a “terrorist organization” with no agenda “other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way”, he made it sound like this group has absolutely no ideology that is driving it.

But even ultra-liberal NBC News understands what ISIL really wants…

    ISIS’ stated goal is to restore the “caliphate” — an Islamic state under the rule of a community of religious scholars guided by a supreme leader, the caliph or khalifah, which is generally taken to mean the successor to the Prophet Muhammad.

ISIL itself has publicly stated that the new caliphate has been established “for the purpose of compelling the people to do what the Sharia (Allah’s law) requires of them.”

What about this is so hard for Obama to understand?

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State, is calling himself “Caliph Ibrahim” these days.  And his public statements leave no doubt about what the group is trying to do.  Here are just three examples…

#1 “Allah likes us to kill his enemies and make jihad”

#2 “The establishment of a caliphate is an obligation. The religion cannot be in place unless the sharia (law) is established.”

#3 “God gave your mujahedeen brothers victory after long years of jihad and patience… so they declared the caliphate and placed the caliph in charge”

But due to the extreme political correctness in Washington D.C., most of our politicians won’t even use the term “Islamic State” even though that is exactly what the group is calling itself.

And according to the Washington Post, House Democrats had a “long debate” about whether to use the term “ISIS” or “ISIL” to refer to this organization.  After much discussion, it was decided that “ISIL” was the more politically correct alternative…

    In the Capitol on Tuesday morning, House Democrats decided after a long debate that they too would call the extremist group ISIL — partly because ISIS was a name that first belonged to a goddess, and then to thousands of women who took said goddess’s name, before a terrorist group claimed it. As Max Fisher at Vox reported last week, many women named Isis have been aggravated by the acronym favored by most people discussing the Islamic State. Isis Martinez, a woman in Miami, has been gathering signatures for a petition titled, “Thousands of Women are Named Isis, Please Petition the Media to Use the Accurate Acronym ISIL.” She has 138 signatures.

This is how bad political correctness has become in America.

Well, I am about to use a term which will surely offend politically correct people everywhere…

“Islamic Terror”

You see, the cold, hard reality of the matter is that the Islamic State is far from alone.  All over the world, radical jihadist organizations are committing unspeakable acts in the name of Islam.  In case you are ignorant about these organizations, here are the names of just a few of them…

Boko Haram

al-Nusrah Front



Army of Islam


Ansar Dine

Mujahidin Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem

Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis

Ansar al-Shari’a in Tunisia

Ansar al-Shari’a in Darnah

Ansar al-Shari’a in Benghazi

al-Mulathamun Battalion

Abdallah Azzam Brigades

Indian Mujahedeen

Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan

Harakat ul-Jihad-i-Islami


Islamic Jihad Union

Libyan Islamic Fighting Group

Ansar al-Islam

Jemaah Islamiya

Asbat al-Ansar

Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade

Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan

The Muslim Brotherhood

Abu Sayyaf

The Haqqani network

Are you starting to get the picture?

Islamic terror is real, and it is not going to go away just because our politically correct politicians wished that it did not exist.

Those that truly love liberty and freedom should be against tyranny in all of the forms in which it is found.

And one of the forms that tyranny takes in our world today is radical Islam.

If radical Islamists had their way, we would all be forced to convert to Islam and live our lives under very strict sharia law.

Personally, that is not something that I would ever want for myself, for my family or for future generations of Americans.

Cat Stevens announces brief US concert tour

NEW YORK (AP) — New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Cat Stevens is taking the "Peace Train" back on the road.

He announced Monday that he will make a six-city concert tour in North America this December, his first series of shows in the U.S. since 1976. His conversion to Islam followed, putting his music career on hold for a quarter century.

Stevens, who's also releasing a blues album in October produced by Rick Rubin, is using that stage name along with Yusuf, the name he took when he converted. The performer of 1970s-era hits "Wild World," ''Morning Has Broken" and "Peace Train" has slowly broken back into secular music during the past decade and has made only a handful of semi-public and television appearances in the U.S.

"I've been a bit slow in coming around to the United States, but there were so many people asking me to do that, that I just felt an obligation," Stevens said in a telephone interview from Dubai, where he lives most of the time now.

The title of the "Peace Train ... Late Again" tour refers to his unhurried music career. Only six dates are scheduled so far — starting Dec. 1 in Toronto and hitting Boston, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Stevens said he frequently gets feedback on Facebook asking him to perform more and that it makes him feel guilty "because I'm not doing as much as they want me to do. Then again, I'm 66 years old, and I do take things in my stride."

Stevens, who was inducted into the rock hall this spring in Brooklyn, said he had a lot of hesitation about getting back into the music business.

"That's something I ran away from a long time ago," he said. "But that's not to say the music business is the same as making music. When I finally reconciled my questions about the issue — where it should be in my life — by that time, I had something to say. I wouldn't be writing songs if I didn't have something to say."

Despite the political climate, with the U.S. fighting the Islamic state in the Middle East, Stevens said he didn't expect his faith to be an issue when he goes on the road in this country.

"I'm afraid that a lot of things that people believe about Islam are totally different from the religion that most of us recognize," he said. "I was really fortunate that I got to know Islam before it became a headline."

Gary Bongiovanni, editor of the concert industry trade publication Pollstar, said he didn't expect problems, although it would be different if Stevens had spoken out in favor of the Islamic state, for instance. He said it looked like a modest tour designed to test that waters and that if Stevens makes clear he'll be playing his old hits — Stevens said he will — he should get some interest.

Rick Warren: “Legendary Cat Stevens came by to see me today as I worked at home on a sermon”


 Who knew that Rick Warren and Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) were this close? Did they sing a few choruses of Cat’s nasheed that contains the lines, “I’m praying to Allah to give us victory over the kuffar”?

It is no surprise. Rick Warren previously has addressed the convention of the Hamas- and Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). He apologized to Muslims, but wasn’t sure what for. And now he is palling around with Mr. Peace Train (which he even references in the above tweet). What could possibly go wrong?

Nothing. It’s “dialogue.” It’s “interfaith outreach.” One thing you can be certain they didn’t “dialogue” about: Yusuf Islam’s enthusiastic 1989 endorsement of the Ayatollah Khomeini’s death fatwa against Salman Rushdie for insulting Islam: “Cat Stevens Gives Support To Call for Death of Rushdie,” by Craig R. Whitney in the New York Times, May 23, 1989:

    TONDON [sic], May 22 — The musician known as Cat Stevens said in a British television program to be broadcast next week that rather than go to a demonstration to burn an effigy of the author Salman Rushdie, ”I would have hoped that it’d be the real thing.”

    The singer, who adopted the name Yusuf Islam when he converted to Islam, made the remark during a panel discussion of British reactions to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s call for Mr. Rushdie to be killed for allegedly blaspheming Islam in his best-selling novel ”The Satanic Verses.” He also said that if Mr. Rushdie turned up at his doorstep looking for help, ”I might ring somebody who might do more damage to him than he would like.”

    ”I’d try to phone the Ayatollah Khomeini and tell him exactly where this man is,” said Mr. Islam, who watched a preview of the program today and said in an interview that he stood by his comments….

And much more recently, he is praying for victory over the kuffar, while being embraced by Rick Warren. Peace train, holy roller, ride on the peace train!

Islamic State Group Issues New Curriculum in Iraq
By Sinan Salaheddin and Vivian Salama
Posted 2014-09-15 21:53 GMT

(AP) -- The extremist-held Iraqi city of Mosul is set to usher in a new school year. But unlike years past, there will be no art or music. Classes about history, literature and Christianity have been "permanently annulled."

The Islamic State group has declared patriotic songs blasphemous and ordered that certain pictures be torn out of textbooks.

But instead of compliance, Iraq's second largest city has -- at least so far -- responded to the Sunni militants' demands with silence. Although the extremists stipulated that the school year would begin Sept. 9, pupils have uniformly not shown up for class, according to residents who spoke anonymously because of safety concerns. They said families were keeping their children home out of mixed feelings of fear, resistance and uncertainty.

"What's important to us now is that the children continue receiving knowledge correctly, even if they lose a whole academic year and an official certification," a Mosul resident who identified himself as Abu Hassan told The Associated Press, giving only his nickname for fear of reprisals. He and his wife have opted for home schooling, picking up the required readings at the local market.

The fall of Mosul on June 10 was a turning point in Iraq's war against the jihadi group that calls itself the Islamic State. The U.S.-trained Iraqi military, harassed for months by small-scale attacks, buckled almost instantly when militants advanced on the city. Commanders disappeared. Pleas for more ammunition went unanswered. In some cases, soldiers stripped off their uniforms and ran.

The city would come to represent the expanding power and influence of the extremist group, which was born in Iraq but spread to Syria, where it grew exponentially in the chaos of the country's civil war. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the group's reclusive leader, made his first video appearance in Mosul in July to announce his vision for a self-styled caliphate -- an Islamic state -- of which he would be the caliph, or leader.

Part of the Islamic State group's core strategy is to establish administration over lands that it controls to project an image of itself as a ruler and not just a fighting force. In parts of Syria under its control, the group now administers courts, fixes roads and even polices traffic. It recently imposed a curriculum in schools in its Syrian stronghold, Raqqa, scrapping subjects such as philosophy and chemistry, and fine-tuning the sciences to fit with its ideology.

In Mosul, schools have been presented with a new set of rules, advertised in a two-page bulletin posted on mosques, in markets and on electricity poles. The statement, dated Sept. 5, cheered "good news of the establishment of the Islamic State Education Diwan by the caliph who seeks to eliminate ignorance, to spread religious sciences and to fight the decayed curriculum."

The new Mosul curriculum, allegedly issued by al-Baghdadi himself, stresses that any reference to the republics of Iraq or Syria must be replaced with "Islamic State." Pictures that violate its ultra-conservative interpretation of Islam will be ripped out of books. Anthems and lyrics that encourage love of country are now viewed as a show of "polytheism and blasphemy," and are strictly banned.

The new curriculum even went so far as to explicitly ban Charles Darwin's theory of evolution -- although it was not previously taught in Iraqi schools.

Abu Hassan and his fellow residents acknowledge the risks involved in keeping the children at home, but say that protecting their minds is equally important. "They will brainwash them and contaminate their thoughts," he said.

This past weekend, some families said that a new statement from the Islamic State group began circulating through the city, demanding that students show up for class on Tuesday. Others said they never received the notice.

Since the earliest days of the militant onslaught on Mosul, some residents who have remained have welcomed the insurgents wholeheartedly, while others have risked death to protect their city and assert their defiance. In July, militants threatened to blow up its most prominent landmark, the 840-year old Crooked Minaret that leans like Italy's Tower of Pisa. Residents sat on the ground and linked arms to form a human chain, protecting the ancient structure from sharing the fate of more than half a dozen mosques and shrines flattened by the militants who declared them dens of apostasy.

Even as foreign intervention, led by U.S. airstrikes, begins to take form and make headway, the group's tight grip on Mosul appears, for now, unrelenting, with many of the militants burying themselves in heavily populated city centers.

It was unclear whether teachers and school administrators have also stayed home rather than show up for work.

In the Sept. 5 statement posted across Mosul, the "caliph," al- Baghdadi, calls upon professionals in Iraq and abroad "to teach and serve the Muslims in order to improve the people of the Islamic state in the fields of all religious and other sciences."

Gender-segregated schools are not new to Iraq, which legally prohibits co-ed classes beyond age 12, with some segregating from a much younger age. However, in Mosul, the new guidelines declared that teachers must also be segregated, with men teaching at boys' schools, and women teaching girls.

The Education Ministry in Baghdad says it has virtually no contact with Mosul and other towns and cities in nearly one-third of the country ruled to some degree by the Islamic State group. "The situation in Mosul is so difficult because it is far too dangerous for us to know exactly what is happening," said Salama al-Hassan, a spokeswoman for ministry.

Students also face hardships elsewhere across Iraq amid growing pressure to cater to more than 1.8 million people people displaced by the militants' advance. Nationwide, the school year has been delayed by a month, because many schools have been converted into makeshift shelters for displaced people from regions seized by the Islamic State group. In Baghdad alone, 76 schools are occupied by displaced Iraqis, al-Hassan said.

"All of this has a serious impact on the psychology of the students," she added. "We want to approach this subject in a way that boosts the confidence and spirit of the students and helps them to understand what is happening in the country without instilling them with fear."

For residents in Mosul and other areas now ruled by the militant group, fear is unavoidable.

The education statement put out by the militants in Mosul ends with a chilling reminder of its willingness to use brutal force. "This announcement is binding," it concludes. "Anyone who acts against it will face punishment."

Title: U.S. Pushes Back Against Warnings That ISIS Plans to Enter From Mexico

U.S. Pushes Back Against Warnings That ISIS Plans to Enter From Mexico


WASHINGTON — Militants for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have traveled to Mexico and are just miles from the United States. They plan to cross over the porous border and will “imminently” launch car bomb attacks. And the threat is so real that federal law enforcement officers have been placed at a heightened state of alert, and an American military base near the border has increased its security.

As the Obama administration and the American public have focused their attention on ISIS in recent weeks, conservative groups and leading Republicans have issued stark warnings like those that ISIS and other extremists from Syria are planning to enter the country illegally from Mexico. But the Homeland Security Department, the F.B.I. and lawmakers who represent areas near the border say there is no truth to the warnings.

“There is no credible intelligence to suggest that there is an active plot by ISIL to attempt to cross the southern border,” Homeland Security officials said in a written statement, using an alternative acronym for the group.

Democrats say opponents of President Obama are simply playing on concerns about terrorism as part of their attempt to portray Mr. Obama as having failed to secure the border against illegal immigration.

“There’s a longstanding history in this country of projecting whatever fears we have onto the border,” said Representative Beto O’Rourke, Democrat of Texas, who represents El Paso and other areas near the border. “In the absence of understanding the border, they insert their fears. Before it was Iran and Al Qaeda. Now it’s ISIS. They just reach the conclusion that invasion is imminent, and it never is.”

At a congressional hearing last week, Representative Jeff Duncan, Republican of South Carolina, pushed back strongly against the testimony of Homeland Security Department officials and Mr. O’Rourke, saying they were ignoring a gathering threat.

“Wake up, America,” Mr. Duncan said before storming out of the hearing. “With a porous southern border, we have no idea who’s in our country.”

But counterterrorism officials say they are far more concerned that an ISIS militant will enter the United States the same way millions of people do each year: legally, on a commercial flight. Their efforts have focused on the more than 2,000 Europeans and 100 Americans who have traveled to Syria to fight alongside extremist groups, nearly all of them crossing over its unprotected borders. Without markings in their passports to show that they traveled to Syria, American border authorities have few ways of determining where they were and stopping them from entering the country.

Warnings about the possibility of terrorists entering the United States from Mexico have been sounded in the past. During the 2012 presidential campaign both Rick Perry and Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, said Islamic extremists working with countries in Latin America, including Mexico, posed a significant threat to the United States.

“We know that Hamas and Hezbollah are working in Mexico, as well as Iran, with their ploy to come into the United States,” Mr. Perry, the governor of Texas, said at a Republican debate in 2011. “So the idea that we need to have border security with the United States and Mexico is paramount to the entire Western Hemisphere.”

Mr. Perry repeated his concerns in a speech last month at the Heritage Foundation in Washington in which he said that because the border was not secure, “individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be” crossing into the United States. “I think it’s a very real possibility that they may have already used that,” he said.

In late August, the conservative group Judicial Watch posted an article on its website about how ISIS was operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juárez and planning car bomb attacks.

“High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued,” the report said. “Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.”

Judicial Watch said intelligence officials had “picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to ‘carry out an attack on the border.’ “ It quoted a “high-level source” saying that the attack was “coming very soon.”

Mr. O’Rourke said that immediately after that report was posted he called the F.B.I. and Homeland Security Department. They told him they had no intelligence about such an attack. Mr. O’Rourke said he spent the rest of his day arguing with members of the news media in Texas about why the Judicial Watch report was not a story. He largely failed to convince them, and the article was widely reported.

Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, said the Obama administration had a history of looking the other way on national security threats, particularly ones involving the border.

“President Obama or his administration should acknowledge this dire threat on the border, whatever its political ramifications are for the debate on immigration,” Mr. Fitton said.

Mr. Fitton said that the idea of ISIS coming across the border “goes against the narrative that the border is secure” and that Americans “don’t need to worry about illegal immigration.”

On Fox News on Monday, a county sheriff in Texas said he had received reports that Qurans and Muslim clothing had been found on smuggling routes. He said that was evidence that Muslims had been smuggled into the United States.

“If they show their ugly head in our area, we’ll send them to hell,” said the sheriff, Gary Painter, of Midland County. “I would like for them to hit them so hard and so often that every time they hear a propeller on a plane or a jet aircraft engine that they urinate down both legs. When you do that, then you’ve accomplished a lot.”

Fox News itself has covered the threats in different ways. After senior administration officials testified at a Senate hearing last week about ISIS, an article on FoxNews.com about the testimony ran under the headline “D.H.S. Confirms ISIS Planning Infiltration of U.S. Southern Border.” An article on Fox News Latino about the same hearing had the headline: “ISIS Terrorists Not Sneaking Over U.S. Southern Border With Mexico, D.H.S. Officials Tell Congress.”

Like I said in other threads I visited Turkey 20 years ago - pretty much the non-Muslim population there opted to not trust any religion at all b/c of their growing concerns of Islam(which has been the predominant religion there). Sure enough, their fears came to pass b/c since the turn of the 21st Century, Islamic leaders took over the government.


Turkey: 40,000 forced to attend religious schools, media
Alevi minority denounces forced assimilation

(ANSAmed) - ANKARA, SEPTEMBER 16 - Some 40,000 students have been forcibly enrolled in Islamic religious schools against their families' will, in Islamic religious schools, according to independent media reports Tuesday.

According to leading independent daily Taraf, the new school year has started amid controversy after thousands of families refused to send their children to religious schools and demanded their transfer.

So-called Imam-hatip religious schools have multiplied under the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Islamic AKP party, which has been in power since 2002. The opposition has accused Erdogan of seeking to 're-islamize' the country's institutions.

Many students from the Alavi minority, a liberal branch of Islam which does not identify itself with the Sunni majority in Turkey, have been enrolled in these schools.

Taraf reported that the Alevi community has denounced an attempt to be forcibly ''assimilated'' by the majority.

Education Minister Nabi Avci has also recently announced that all schools in the country will have prayer rooms, sparking a controversy. Avci however said praying will not be mandatory in schools.

The European Court of Human rights has recently condemned Turkey for introducing over the past few years mandatory courses on Sunni Islam in all schools. (ANSAmed)

ISIS bans math, social studies for children

CNN) -- In swaths of Syria now controlled by ISIS, children can no longer study math or social studies. Sports are out of the question. And students will be banned from learning about elections and democracy.

Instead, they'll be subjected to the teachings of the radical Islamist group. And any teacher who dares to break the rules "will be punished."

ISIS revealed its new educational demands in fliers posted on billboards and on street poles. The Sunni militant group has captured a slew of Syrian and Iraqi cities in recent months as it tries to establish a caliphate, or Islamic state, spanning Sunni parts of both countries.

In the letter, ISIS said alternative courses will be added.

It also said teachers must erase the phrase Syrian Arab Republic -- the official name of Syria -- and replace it with Islamic State, which is what ISIS calls itself.

Educators cannot teach nationalistic and ethnic ideology and must instead teach "the belonging to Islam ... and to denounce infidelity and infidels."

Books cannot include any reference to evolution. And teachers must say that the laws of physics and chemistry "are due to Allah's rules and laws."

The letter ends with a firm warning:

"This is an obligatory announcement, and all violators will be punished."

200 Syrians killed in one day

The brutal advances of ISIS in Syria come as the country grapples with a three-year civil war with no clear victor in sight.

At least 200 people were killed on Tuesday alone, the opposition group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. It said about 60 were killed by regime airstrikes.

The state-run Syrian Arab News Agency, meanwhile, said terrorist attacks in Damascus, Hama and Homs left at least three civilians dead.

In all, the United Nations estimates more than 190,000 people have died in the violence between President Bashar al-Assad's regime and rebels seeking an end to four decades of al-Assad family rule.

From gangsta rapper to Islamist militant
A German hip-hop artist joins the Islamic State, sparking fears of homegrown terror in his country

By Marc Young September 19, 2014 4:39 AM Yahoo News

As war in Syria and Iraq attracts a growing number of Muslim extremists from Europe, intelligence officials in Germany believe a former gangsta rapper has joined the inner circle of Islamists fighting there.

Denis Cuspert was once a modestly successful member of Germany's hip-hop scene going by the stage name Deso Dogg. Now he calls himself Abu Talha the German and is a top propagandist for the so-called Islamic State (IS) caliphate, which is blamed for several wartime atrocities.

His ascent into the upper IS ranks is raising concerns that such "homegrown" Islamists could embolden Muslim extremists in Germany or that they might one day return themselves to target the country for terrorism.

"Cuspert won't come back since there's an arrest warrant waiting for him," Elke Altmüller, a spokeswoman for Germany's Verfassungsschutz domestic intelligence agency, told Yahoo News. "But there's a danger he could incite others."

And as the cross-border conflict in Syria and Iraq continues to rage, it is luring hundreds of would-be jihadis from Europe, including radicalized converts like the ex-rapper. Although the German authorities have said they see no indications an attack is imminent, they are attempting to track fighters returning from the war zone.

Currently, there are an estimated 400 Muslim extremists from Germany in Syria, either directly engaging in fighting or otherwise supporting the Islamists. Altmüller said roughly 10 percent of them were German converts to Islam. According to intelligence reports, some 40 have been killed in the conflict.

That was almost the fate of the 38-year-old Cuspert after he was seriously injured in an airstrike by Syrian forces in September 2013. But he survived, and being wounded apparently helped him win respect among the extremists. He eventually swore allegiance in an online video this spring to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has since declared himself caliph of the repressive Islamic State.

Eight-year-old girl in Australia asks Muslim youth to back jihad

Sydney: An incident has shocked not only the Australian security agencies who are chasing the Islamists on the ground, but also the entire world. According to a report in 'Australian', an eight-year-old girl has called the Muslim youths to back jihad. The worst fears have come true. The report says, "As Julia Gillard struggled to explain how Muslim children could be used to incite violence, eight-year-old Ruqaya yesterday fronted a congress of Islamic fundamendalists in Sydney to espouse her love for jihad. Addressing a 600-strong crowd at the Australian chapter of Hizb-ut-Tahrir in Bankstown in the city's west, the young girl urged all Muslim youth to fight for the restoration of the Islamic caliphate, a single global government for all Muslims established under strict sharia law."

The girl said, "My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, as the world gathers against the believers in Syria...seeking to hijack our sincere and blessed uprisings, children in Sydney would like to send their message of hope and support to the Muslims of (Syria), especially to the children and mothers," she read from notes. "These uprisings have demonstrated that this umma (global Muslim community) is alive and well, her love is for jihad, she is unshackled herself from the fear which she held, and she yearns to once again live under the banner of (the Islamic state). Children as young as myself can be seen on the streets joining the uprisings, risking their lives to bring food, water and medicine to their wounded family members, some of them never returning to their mothers ... Nobody is too young," she said.

Ruqaya was the seventh of nine speakers at the "Muslims Rise" conference. Organisers of the event invited the media to report on her address. Julia Gillard on Sunday expressed her horror at images showing Muslim children carrying inflammatory placards at a protest in Sydney on Saturday, including one that read "Behead all those who insult the Prophet".

Another sign at the protest read, "Our dead are in paradise, your dead are in hell." "I do not want to see in the hands of anyone, particularly children, offensive signs that call for the killing of others," the Prime Minister said. "This is not the Australian way.

"We believe in freedom of religion and we believe that every religion should be treated with respect."

Hizb-ut-Tahrir is an international political movement devoted to restoring a caliphate, the last of which collapsed in the 1920s. The movement hopes Islamic fighters in Syria will replace the Assad regime with a caliph-led state that will eventually annex other Muslim countries and promote Islam in the West.

The caliphate would also threaten Western nations with jihad if they did not prevent their citizens from defaming the Prophet Mohammed or Islam. It would be established under the same constitution imposed under Mohammed, which could not be reformed.

Ruqaya said, "We must work hard to achieve victory. It is enough that your generation and your parents' generation were raised in the absence of the khilafa (caliphate). Do not allow my generation to be added to that list."

Khaled Sukkarieh, the chairman of the Islamic Council of NSW, said images of children at the protest shocked many in his community. "Someone put that (banner) in the hand of a child. "That is a poor, innocent child. It is abhorrent and a very sad way of using children," Mr Sukkarieh said.

Official: Some Americans who fought in Syria have returned

Some of the estimated 100 Americans who have tried to get to Syria and join up with groups like the Islamic State have returned to the United States and are under FBI scrutiny, a top official told reporters on Monday.

For months, top American officials have warned that U.S. citizens trying to swell the ranks of the Islamic State and other groups fighting to topple Bashar Assad pose an exceptional security risk.

Asked whether there were 100 Americans now in Syria, a senior administration official told reporters that the figure “includes those who’ve gone, those who’ve tried to go, some who’ve come back and who are under active – the FBI is looking at them.” The official was speaking at a briefing organized by the White House; the ground rules required that the official be anonymous.

Earlier, Secretary of State John Kerry highlighted the administration’s concerns in an interview with MSNBC.

“We have over a hundred fighters there from America. They have passports. They can come back here,” having acquired deadly expertise on Syrian battlefields, Kerry said.

On Sept. 17, President Obama chaired a special meeting of his national security team that focused on the danger posed by American fighters joining the foreign cause.

“With respect to the Americans who may be engaged in combat in Iraq and Syria, this is something that our national security agencies and counterterrorism team are taking very seriously,” National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Friday.

“It’s something we track closely. And we are doing obviously all that we can to both gather the necessary information and take the appropriate precautions to the greatest extent that we possibly can,” Rice said.

Asked whether 100 was a relatively low number that might signal success in keeping Americans off Syrian battlefields, the anonymous official replied: “I think that success is 0.”

“One American going is too much.”

Report: Nearly 2.5 Million Immigrants from 'Predominantly Muslim Countries' Reside Inside U.S. Right Now

Approximately 2.5 million immigrants from “predominantly Muslim countries" reside inside the U.S. right now, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies found.

The four-page report, which details which countries and world regions from which immigrants in the U.S.—both legal and illegal—came to this country, found that since 2000 nearly a million more immigrants from such Muslim countries came to the U.S.

In 2000, there were 1,518,755 immigrants from Muslim countries in the U.S. In 2010, That number stood at 2,184,664, and in 2013 it stands at 2,480,407.

Between 2010 and 2013, there was actually a greater increase in the number of immigrants from the Middle East than from Central America. During that timeframe, 207,758 more immigrants moved to the U.S. from the Middle East, whereas only 113,744 immigrants came from Central America.

The report found that despite the staggering growth of immigration from the Middle East, the regions that sent even more immigrants to the U.S. in the past few years are South Asia, East Asia, and the Caribbean. South Asia, which includes India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, sent 372,546 more immigrants to the U.S. between 2010 and 2013, whereas East Asia—which includes China, Korea and Vietnam—sent 364,909 more immigrants to the U.S. during that timeframe. From the Caribbean, 223,011 more immigrants entered the U.S. between 2010 and 2013.

During that same timeframe, immigration from Mexico dropped 126,126. In 2010, there were 11,711,103 immigrants both illegal and legal in the U.S. from Mexico, according to this data set, and in 2013 there were just 11,584,977 immigrants from Mexico in the U.S.

The report, authored by Steven Camarota and Karen Zeigler from CIS, relies on U.S. census data to make these observations.

"The data show that the nation’s immigrant population (legal and illegal) grew by 1.4 million from July 2010 to July 2013,” Camarota and Zeigler wrote. “The data also imply that 3.3 million new immigrants settled in the country in that same period. These new arrivals were offset by return migration and deaths among the existing population. The immigrant population, referred to as the foreign-born by the Census Bureau, includes all those who were not U.S. citizens at birth, including illegal immigrants.”

Between legal and illegal immigrants residing in the U.S., the authors found that America’s immigration population “hit a record 41.3 million in July 2013.”

“The sending regions with the largest increases from 2010 to 2013 were South Asia (up 373,000, 16 percent growth); East Asia (up 365,000, 5 percent growth); the Caribbean (up 223,000, 6 percent growth), the Middle East (up 208,000, 13 percent growth); and sub-Saharan Africa (up 177,000, 13 percent growth),” Camarota and Zeigler wrote.

Kentucky churches being turned into mosques

LOUISVILLE The growing trend of former church buildings being turned into mosques and Islamic centers has reached Kentucky’s largest city where even some once-thriving Southern Baptist facilities are now occupied by Muslims.

“On a trip to England a few years ago, I recall seeing dozens of churches that had become mosques and wondering how it could happen there; now it’s happening here,” said Paul Chitwood, executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

Todd Robertson, pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Louisville, said the religious makeup of the Bible Belt is rapidly changing with declining membership in many Christian congregations and growing participation in Islam and other religions.

“We have at least three former Baptist churches in Louisville that are no longer Baptist churches—two are mosques and one is a Sikh temple, and that’s a reality that’s troubling for many of us,” he said.

Robertson is urging Kentucky Baptists to “think strategically” to find ways to revitalize shrinking congregations and to protect the assets of those that end up closing. He is among those leaders calling for churches that have weakened to the point of closing to donate their buildings and property for church plants rather than putting them up for sale.

**Not quite - these 501c3 churches are GOVERNMENT RUNNED properties! IOW, once they shut down operations, it's in the hands of the federal government!

In Kentucky and throughout the Southern Baptist Convention, the number of Christian converts has been in steady decline in recent years, while other religions have been experiencing rapid growth. Louisville, for example, now has more than 20 mosques.

“This should be a call to action for Kentucky Baptists to get serious about telling others about Jesus,” Chitwood said.

Since becoming head of the KBC three years ago, Chitwood has preached the need for church revitalization. He has put together a troop of regional consultants to work with local churches on growth strategies, while also embarking on an ambitious push to plant hundreds of new churches across the state.

The needs are obvious: The number of new believers being baptized fell from 14,984 in 2012 to 13,970 in 2013, a decline of roughly 1,000.

“We are on the brink of a massive transfer of kingdom assets,” Robertson said. “I’m talking about property—buildings and things like that—of churches that, in their heyday of the ’50s and ’60s, were exploding with growth.”

Robertson said many of those churches are now on the brink of closing. Some, he said, will end up throwing their building on the market “and having it bought by who knows who for who knows what.”

**Please stop lying - you know very well that your Babel buildings are government-runned properties via the 501c3 status. Once you shut down operations, the federal government has control over who to sell/give it to.

Former church buildings typically need only minor renovations to be used as mosques and Islamic centers and are generally less expensive than constructing new ones from the ground up.

“We have to face the reality of it,” Robertson said. “We’ve got to look ahead and think how we are going to strategically address this issue so that we continue to leverage the assets that God has blessed us with for the sake of the kingdom so that the gospel will continue to be proclaimed.”

Robertson warned that unless Kentucky Baptists think strategically about how to change the tide of shrinking congregations, they’re going to see increasing numbers of church buildings turned into places of worship for other religions.

“Now, I know they’re just buildings, and that’s not the church, but yet I see them in the grander scheme as kingdom assets,” he said. “I think we should have a very different mindset about what happens to those assets.”

Suspect in Oklahoma beheading tried converting co-workers to Islam

A disgruntled, fired factory worker — who had tried to convert his colleagues to Islam — used a 10-inch work knife to stab and behead a female employee, law enforcement sources told The Post on Friday.

The FBI is investigating Thursday’s brutal murder at Vaughan Foods in the Oklahoma town of Moore due to the nature of the attack, which comes on the heels of recently released ISIS beheading videos.

Alton Nolen, 30, had been fired from the food distribution company early Thursday and drove back to the plant around 4 p.m., according to sources.

He barged in and attacked the first person he saw — 54-year-old Colleen Hufford — stabbing her in the back and cutting her head off with a knife he had used while working at the plant.

Numerous statements from co-workers pointed to a religious motive behind the attack — citing Nolen’s background in Islam and numerous attempts to get employees to convert, sources said.

KWTV Channel 9’s Robin Marsh tweeted that Nolen had been shouting Islamic phrases during his vicious attack, but that could not be immediately confirmed.

He then directed his rage toward a 43-year-old co-worker, Traci Johnson, whom he repeatedly stabbed with the same bloody blade he used to saw off Hufford’s head, according to sources.

He was finally shot by Oklahoma County reserve deputy and former Vaughan Foods CEO Mark Vaughan, who used a rifle to bring down the menace.

The FBI is probing Nolen’s Islamic ties and attempts to convert colleagues. Homeland Security has warned this week of “lone wolf” terrorist attacks on US soil while American forces conduct airstrikes against ISIS forces in Syria.

And look at the (rotten)fruit of this "religious liberty" agenda!

Republicans rallying behind religious liberty

WASHINGTON (AP) — Fighting to improve their brand, leading Republicans rallied behind religious liberty at a Friday gathering of evangelical conservatives, rebuking an unpopular President Barack Obama while skirting divisive social issues.

Speakers did not ignore abortion and gay marriage altogether on the opening day of the annual Values Voter Summit, but a slate of prospective presidential candidates focused on the persecution of Christians and their values at home and abroad — a message GOP officials hope will help unify a divided party and appeal to new voters ahead of November's midterm elections and the 2016 presidential contest.

"Oh, the vacuum of American leadership we see in the world," Texas Sen. Cruz declared Friday in a Washington hotel ballroom packed with religious conservatives. "We need a president who will speak out for people of faith, prisoners of conscience."

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul echoed the theme in a speech describing America as a nation in "spiritual crisis."

"Not a penny should go to any nation that persecutes or kills Christians," said Paul, who like Cruz is openly considering a 2016 presidential bid.

The speaking program included such potential 2016 candidates as former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. Several possible Republican candidates — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush among them — did not attend. The group has positions on social issues across the spectrum — from the libertarian-leaning Paul, who favors less emphasis on abortion and gay marriage, to Huckabee, a former Southern Baptist pastor whose conservative social values define his brand.

The event host, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, said "a fundamental shift" is underway toward religious freedom among Republicans of all stripes.

"Without religious freedom, we lose the ability to even address those other issues," Perkins said of social issues.

Despite any rhetorical shift, he warned that evangelical voters will not forget priorities such as abortion and traditional marriage on Election Day: "It is not time to rethink our principles or shrink back from the conflict."

The intraparty debate over social issues has broad implications for the GOP's struggle to improve its image following a disappointing 2012 election season. The party platform formally opposes same-sex marriage and abortion rights, but the Republican National Committee released an internal audit last year calling for candidates to be more "inclusive and welcoming" on social issues.

"If we are not, we will limit our ability to attract young people and others, including many women, who agree with us on some but not all issues," the report reads.

The rise of the Islamic State group and intensifying violence across the world has helped re-focus some cultural conservatives. The weekend summit features a dinner reception Saturday to honor Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman initially sentenced to death for refusing to denounce her Christian faith.

Advisers report that Jindal, who is also weighing a White House bid, would also highlight "the silent war on religious liberty" in afternoon remarks, a subject he outlined in a February speech at the Reagan Library.

Chip Saltsman, who served as Huckabee's presidential campaign manager in 2008, said concerns over religious persecution are centered on the same principles that have guided evangelical conservatives for years.

"When you look at what's going on in the world today, you talk about freedom issues and life issues; they're all the same," Saltsman said. "To be corny, those are all life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness issues."

**I'm not sure about this, but I believe "pursuit of happiness..." is freemasonic language.

Abortion and gay marriage were not forgotten on Friday, however.

"Let this generation be the one to stop abortion in America," Indiana Rep. Marlin Stutzman declared, calling on evangelicals to be "happy warriors" in the debate.

**You should have said so when Ronald Reagan appointed Sandra Day O'Conner and Anthony Kennedy to the USSC - who ended up being the deciding factors in cementing in stone Roe V Wade for good in 1992.

Cruz, an evangelical favorite who overwhelmingly won last year's Values Voter presidential straw poll, drew applause for chastising those in the GOP who encourage Republican candidates to downplay "family values."

"How do we win? We defend the values that are American values," Cruz said. "We stand for life. We stand for marriage. We stand for Israel."

Even Paul weighed in on abortion: "Don't tell me that 5- and 6-pound babies have no rights simply because they're not yet born," the Kentucky senator said and later added, "What America needs is a revival."

‘SHARIA LAW IS COMING!!!!’ Oklahoma Beheader Celebrated Terrorists, Disparaged Non-Muslims On Facebook

Oklahoma beheading suspect Alton Alexander Nolen calls himself “Jah’Keem Yisrael” on his Facebook page, where he uploaded photos of himself reading the Koran and wearing Muslim religious clothing.

Nolen’s Facebook “cover” photo appears to be of several Taliban fighters, according to a Google reverse image search.

He also posted images of Osama bin Laden and wrote in a caption on a photograph of the 9/11 attacks “A Future Prophecy Revelation 18:8 She (The statue Of Liberty) is going into flames. She and anybody who’s with her.” He also referenced U.S. intervention in Iraq in a July 24 post, writing, “AMERICA SO CALL HELPS IRAQ (WHICH NOT)- WELL WHY CANT U HELP THE GAZA CITIZENS AGAINST ISRAEL…AMERICA AND ISRAEL ARE WICKED. WAKE UP MUSLIMS!!!”

A Philadelphia-based friend asked Nolen if he was praying in one of his photographs at “the Masjid on Luzerne,” appearing to refer to the Muslim American Society of Philadelphia. Nolen replied, “LAA,” to which his friend responded, “oh you not in Philadelphia.”

“I JST WANT TO SAY AS AN MUSLIM WE DNT CELEBRATE AMERIKAS HOLIDAYS,” he wrote in a caption accompanying a photograph of an Islamist fighter.


“Ima Tell You Off Top Im Not Your Friend My Friends Are At The Mosque All Around The World,” he wrote in a description of himself. “Im an Muslim from the Tribe of Judah who Was Pretty Much Raised In Killeen Texas. My Ancestors Who Are The True Jews Here In America Today Are Originally From Israel. They Were Bombed Outta Israel By The Roman Catholic Army So They Fled To Egypt And The Afrikans Sold Us To The White Man As Slaves Along With Any Other Black Person Here In Amerika Today Aka The True Jews From Israel. Our Ancestors Are Originally From Israel. Were Not from Afrika.”

His Facebook friends include a variety of Muslims in America, England, and around the world, including multiple friends from the Philadelphia area.

Didn't OK recently have a public Satanic mass?

Radical Islam, not Peace on Display in Moore, Oklahoma

President Obama and other politicians are fond of reminding Americans that Islam is a “religion of peace.” Unfortunately, that message is not getting across to the millions of Muslims that adhere to a radical branch of Islam that considers non-believers to be infidels worthy of death. Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy and other experts estimate that 15% of the 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide believe in this violent form of Islam. This means there are approximately 240 million Muslims who want to kill Christians, Jews and “moderate” Muslims.

Sadly, these radicals are not confined to the Middle East. They have found a home in the United States of America, even in Moore, Oklahoma. On Thursday, Alton Nolen, who recently converted to Islam, started attacking innocent people at the Vaughan Foods processing plant. Nolen, who had tried to convert others to Islam, had recently been fired from the company.

He turned his anger into murder when he stabbed and beheaded Colleen Hufford, a co-worker, and was in the process of killing Traci Johnson before he was stopped by Mark Vaughan, the company’s Chief Operating Officer. Fortunately, Vaughan, a reserve Oklahoma County deputy, shot Nolen before he could kill Johnson and others. According to Moore Police Sergeant Jeremy Lewis, Vaughan is a “hero,” because Nolen was “not going to stop.” Lewis believes it would “have gotten a lot worse” if not for Vaughan intervening with his firearm.

Liberals love to blame guns for violence in this country, but firearms are only an instrument, which can be used properly or improperly. What determines the outcome is the mindset of the individual pulling the trigger. In this case, Vaughan used a weapon to save lives. It is the type of incident that usually does not receive media coverage, but happens regularly in our nation.

It is much more common for an American, with proper training, to use a weapon to save a life than it is for someone to accidentally kill an innocent person. This tragedy once again highlights the importance of the right to bear arms.

It also clearly illustrates the growing threat of radical Islam in the United States. Nolen recently served several years in prison and may have converted to Islam while behind bars, like so many other prisoners in America.

While the media is underplaying his religion, it is a crucial part of this incident. It was likely a motivating factor for Nolen. He beheaded Ms. Hufford in the same manner as the Islamic State terrorists in Iraq and Syria have killed countless people, including two Americans and a British citizen.

Beheadings have become the hallmark of the Islamic State. It is a type of savagery that is gaining support for the Islamic State from deranged Muslims worldwide who emulate this horrific crime. This week, a French citizen was beheaded by a radical Islamic group in Algeria, which pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and their terrorist methods.

Obviously, the threat of Islamic terrorism is not confined to any one country. Radical Islam is becoming more of a problem in this country, which is why the FBI is investigating Nolen’s background and the incident at Vaughan Foods.

Another worrisome factor is that America is especially vulnerable due to our wide open borders. We have no idea how many Islamic State terrorists have crossed into our country. We also do not know how many Americans are converting to the radical form of Islam in our country’s prisons and mosques.

We are at war, not against terrorism or extremists, but against radical Islam. The war is not only being waged in the Middle East, but also, increasingly, in our own country.

Oklahoma Beheading: Have Our Prisons Become Jihad Factories? (UPDATED)

We don’t know details yet of the murder of a woman at Vaughan Foods — an Oklahoma distribution center —  by a co-worker, but we do know that it was a beheading and we do know the alleged suspect — Alton Nolen, 30 — was a new convert to Islam.

We also know that other workers at Vaughan say the suspect had tried to convert them to that religion.

Some MSM outlets are emphasizing that the suspect was recently fired (it’s workplace violence, doncha know?), but the number of firings that lead to revenge beheadings is minuscule.  In fact, I don’t know of any previous.  But we don’t have to look too far back, not more than a day or two, to find a popular motivation for beheadings in general — jihad.

Was Nolen motivated by jihad or workplace revenge or a cocktail of both?  Probably both. He had a checkered past.  He had been convicted in January 2011 of “multiple drug offenses, assault and battery on a police officer and escape from detention,” according to state records.  He was released from prison in March 2013.

We don’t know the extent to which Nolen’s conversion to Islam occurred in prison, although it is highly likely most of it did.  This is surely worth investigating. Such conversions are a monumental powder keg in the process of going off.  From Wikipedia:

    J. Michael Waller claims that Muslim inmates comprise 17-20% of the prison population in New York, or roughly 350,000 inmates in 2003. He also claims that 80% of the prisoners who “find faith” while in prison convert to Islam.[1] These converted inmates are mostly African American, with a small but growing Hispanic minority.[2] Waller also asserts that many converts are radicalized by outside Islamist groups linked to terrorism, but other experts suggest that when radicalization does occur it has little to no connection with these outside interests.[3][4][5]

Oh, really? Or should I say, “What difference does it make?”  Those “other experts” are being naïve or tendentious.  It’s not as if the Islamic extremist playbooks are a secret.  They are the basic texts of the religion itself, studied by all adherents in or outside prison, in large groups or by themselves.  These same texts call for the extermination or, at best, dhimmitude of the infidel who does not convert. So the behavior of the ummah is regulated across borders. You don’t have to be a card-carrying member of ISIL to know how to behead.  Anyone can do it.

This makes our prisons veritable training grounds — petri dishes, if you will — for fanatic killers of the type of the Oklahoma suspect, not to mention recruitment centers for whatever murderous Islamic sect happens to be in vogue that week or month.  The only difference between New York and Oklahoma prisons would be one of scale.

A Justice Department report criticized the prison system for “failing to protect against ‘infiltration by religious extremists’”.  But that report was way back in 2004.  The situation is unquestionably much worse now.

Furthermore,  the report exonerated “radical chaplains,” placing the blame on “extremist inmates running worship services.”  I’m skeptical. The entire system must be examined, including every chaplain.  The New York State system had a chaplain (Imam Warith Deen Umara) who praised the September 11 attacks. The Oklahoma beheading makes a complete public investigation mandatory.

The more difficult question, however, is what to do after the investigation, if the results are as they seem.  Banning Islam from our prisons for inciting violence might backfire in a way that would engender even more conversions.  Still, jihadism in it essence advocates the violent overthrow of the U.S. government, with which it is incompatible.  Should we allow such a thing inside prison?  The conventional answer is to seek out “moderate” Islamic chaplains to counter the extremists.  But where are such people and, more specifically, where have they been? Other than the extraordinary Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, the outspoken moderates are an extremely scarce commodity.

Nevertheless something must be done now to prevent our prisons form becoming Jihad Factories. They’re already more than halfway there.

Police: Man accused in Oklahoma beheading is awake

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A man who was shot after authorities say he beheaded one woman and attacked another at an Oklahoma food processing plant from which he had just been fired has regained consciousness and was interviewed by detectives Saturday.

Alton Nolen, 30, remains hospitalized in stable condition after Thursday's attack at the Vaughan Foods plant in the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore, Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said. He said that Nolen will be charged Monday with first-degree murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon and that he may also face federal charges.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for an Oklahoma City Islamic group said Saturday that Nolen was a frequent worshipper at a mosque the group maintains and that he remembers the suspect as "a little weird."

"He was a nice, quiet, low-key guy," said Saad Mohammed, director of information for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City. "He acted a little odd," Mohammed said, though he added that Nolen's behavior never raised any "red flags."

Mohammed said Nolen began worshipping at one of the group's mosques in May.

Lewis said Nolen was fired right before the attack, and that he then drove from the building that houses the company's human resources department to its main distribution center.

Once inside, he attacked 54-year-old Colleen Hufford with a knife in the center's administrative office area, eventually severing her head, according to police. Nolen then repeatedly stabbed 43-year-old Traci Johnson before Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff's deputy and the company's chief operating officer, shot him, police said.

Johnson was treated for her injuries at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center, where she was released Saturday, said Varina Shellman, clinical coordinator for the medical center.

Lewis said Johnson was also interviewed Saturday.

Police learned Nolen was fired for "numerous reasons" involving "personnel issues," Lewis said, adding that he didn't know the specifics.

Police asked the FBI to help investigate Nolen after co-workers told investigators he had recently started trying to convert several employees to Islam. He said police asked the FBI to look into Lewis' background because of the nature of the attack, which followed a series of high-profile videotaped beheadings by Islamic State militants.

Mohammed said Nolen had attended services where sermons were delivered condemning such attacks.

"In no way, shape or form did he represent Islam in this foolish act," Mohammed said.

In a statement, FBI Special Agent in Charge James E. Finch said the motive for the attack had not been determined, but that there is no reason to believe there was a threat to anyone else.

"We don't have any reason to believe there is any danger to the area," Lewis said.

According to Oklahoma Department of Corrections records, Nolen served time in prison and is on probation for assault and battery of a police officer. He also was convicted of **** possession with the intent to distribute in 2011.

The records show that Nolen has what appear to be religious tattoos, including one referencing Jesus and one in Arabic that means "peace be with you."

Raymond Ibrahim: The Islamic State Beheads and Mutilates As the Koran Instructs

   To understand why the Islamic State not only decapitates its “infidel” captives, but also mutilates and mocks their corpses— and all to sadistic laughter—one need only turn to the Koran and deeds of Islamic prophet Muhammad. The Koran exhorts believers to “Fight them [those who oppose Islam], Allah will torment them with your hands, humiliate them, empower you over them, and heal the hearts of the believers, removing the rage from their hearts” (Koran 9:14-15). 

 As usual, to understand the significance of any Koran verse, one must turn to the sira and hadith—the biography and anecdotes of Muhammad, respectively—for context.

Thus we come to the following account concerning the slaughter of ‘Amr bin Hisham, a pagan Arab chieftain originally  known as “Abu Hakim” (Father of Wisdom) until Muhammad dubbed him “Abu Jahl” (Father of Stupidity) for his staunch opposition to Islam.

After ‘Amr was mortally wounded by a new convert to Islam during the Battle of Badr, Abdullah ibn Mas‘ud, a close companion of Muhammad, saw the “infidel” chieftain collapsed on the ground.  So he went to him and started abusing him. Among other things, Abdullah grabbed and pulled ‘Amr’s beard and stood in triumph on the dying man’s chest.

According to Al-Bidaya wa Al-Nihaya (“The Beginning and the End”), Ibn Kathir’s authoritiative history of Islam, “After that, he [Abdullah] slit his [‘Amr’s] head off and bore it till he placed it between the hands of the Prophet. Thus did Allah heal the hearts of the believers with it.”

This, then, is the true significance of Koran 9:14-15: “Fight them, Allah will torment them with your hands [mortally wounding and eventually decapitating ‘Amr], humiliate them [pulling his beard], empower you over them [standing atop him], and heal the hearts of the believers, removing the rage from their hearts [at the sight of his decapitated head].”

The logic here is that, pious Muslims are so full of zeal for Allah’s cause that the only way their inflamed hearts can be at rest is to see those who oppose Allah and his prophet utterly crushed—humiliated, mutilated, decapitated. Then the hearts of the believers can be at ease and “healed.”

This is surely one of the reasons behind the Islamic State’s dissemination of gory videos and pictures of its victims: the new “caliphate” is trying to heal the hearts of every believer inflamed for the cause of Allah.

If this sounds too farfetched, consider the following picture of a decapitated “infidel” from the Islamic State’s websites. The Arabic caption to the left says “healing for hearts”—a clear reference to the aforementioned Koran verse:

 Koran 96:15-16 also alludes to the fate of ‘Amr and offers more context applicable to the Islamic State: “No! If he does not desist, we will surely drag him by the forelock—a lying, sinning forelock.”

According to al-Alusi’s tafsir, or exegesis, after Abdullah placed his foot on the dying foe of Islam, ‘Amr opened his eyes and recognized him. The once proud chieftain lamented that he was being killed by a common “goat herder,” to which Abdullah replied, “Islam elevates and nothing is elevated above it.”

He then sheared his head off. “But he could not carry it, so he made holes in the ears and put thread through them and dragged the head to the prophet.  Then Gabriel, peace be upon him, came laughing and saying, “O prophet, you got an ear and an ear—and the head between for a bonus!”

Based, then, on the treatment of ‘Amr bin Hisham (AKA “Abu Jahl”) as recorded in Islam’s core texts—Koran, hadith, sira, and tafsirs—all sadistic acts being carried out by the Islamic State were in fact committed by the earliest Muslims and all to the complete approval of Muhammad (and apparently the “angel” Gabriel, too).  They include:

    Beheadings and mutilations (e.g., holes in ears of ‘Amr)
    Humiliation and gestures of triumph (feet on chest of fallen victim, dragging his body, or head, on the ground)
    Laughter, mockery, and celebration (for the hearts of the believers are now “healed”)

Indeed, along with the “healing for hearts” image above, consider some other pictures taken from the Islamic State’s websites and how well they conform to the above accounts describing the slaughter of ‘Amr
  • :

Note how in the following four pictures, to demonstrate that the enemies of Islam have been brought low, as Koran 9:14-15 promised, Islamic State members make it a point to place their feet atop their fallen corpses, most of which were first decapitated.

Note also how the ubiquitous black flag of Islam is always raised above the fallen “infidels”—a reminder that “Islam elevates and nothing is elevated above it,” as Abdullah told ‘Amr, with his foot on his chest, before beheading him.

Fired Oklahoma City nursing home worker threatened beheading, police say
Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, a native of Kenya, was arrested Friday in Oklahoma City on a terrorism complaint.

In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off.

Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint. His bail is set at $1 million.

“We take these threats very seriously,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.

The arrest came on the same day police in Moore revealed fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen beheaded a co-worker after he was fired Thursday. Nolen is a Muslim convert.

Muriithi was identified as a native of Kenya who is living in Oklahoma City. He worked at Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City, police reported.

The co-worker reported Muriithi threatened her while they were both working at the nursing home Sept. 19, a police detective wrote in an arrest warrant affidavit.

The woman was not identified.

She said Muriithi identified himself as a Muslim and said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the detective told a judge in the affidavit. The two had not worked together before.

ISIS is a reference to Islamic State militants responsible for highly publicized beheadings in the Middle East.

The woman said she asked him why they kill Christians and he replied, “This is just what we do,” the detective reported.

“The victim said Jacob asked her what time she got off work and she replied by asking him in a joking manner if he was going to kill her,’ the detective wrote. “Jacob told the victim, ‘Yes,’ he was going to cut her head off. The victim asked Jacob what he was going to cut her head off with and he said, ‘A blade,’ then told her after he did it he was going to post it on Facebook.

“The victim said Jacob was serious when speaking and never made any statements that he was joking or playing around.”

The woman reported Muriithi repeated the threat as she left work, saying in front of another employee that he was going to use a blade, the detective reported.

The FBI said Friday about the tragedy in Moore that there is no current indication of any additional threat to residents of Oklahoma related to that incident.

Muslim leaders play victim in Oklahoma beheading

Colleen Hufford of Moore Oklahoma may be dead, but the real victims are Muslims, or so we are being asked to believe. In fact, according to the Imam of the Islamic Institute of Boston, Islam suffers a “double hurt.” And here I thought Ms. Hufford had it bad.

The imam should know, after all, it was his Institute’s “resident scholar” who was reportedly the former imam of the Oklahoma mosque attended by Alton Alexander Nolen, aka Jah’Keem Yisrael, who wielded the knife separating Ms. H’s head from her body. And the leadership of that Oklahoma mosque agree that they are the ones facing difficulty now that Ms. Hufford is consigned to the fate an infidel suffers after death.  The Oklahoman reports:

    Saad Mohammad, the Islamic society’s director of news and information, said law enforcement representatives contacted his mosque during their investigation Friday. (snip)

    Mohammad told The Oklahoman that leaders of the society’s mosque decided to take extra security precautions to protect Muslims who gather there from any potential retaliatory violence.

    Mohammad said anti-Muslim sentiments could be heightened because of the beheadings and violence overseas by ISIS.

We’re once again hearing the narrative that came of age in September 2001, as the American people were cautioned that we are such primitives that we are likely to seek revenge against innocent adherents of the purported Religion of Peace. And that religion has absolutely nothing to do with the violence committed in its name, and in accordance with its most holy scripture, the Koran.  As Andrew McCarthy points out, beheading is not only called for in the Koran, it is widely practiced today in Sharia-compliant Saudi Arabia, and throughout the history of Islamic conquest:

    I happen to own the edition of the Koran “with English Translation of ‘The Meanings and Commentary,’” published at the “King Fahd Holy Qur-an Printing Complex” — Fahd was [Saudi King] Abdullah’s brother and predecessor. As the introductory pages explain, this version is produced under the auspices of the regime’s “Ministry of Hajj and Endowments.” In its sura (or chapter) 47, Allah commands Muslims, “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks.”

    The accompanying English commentary helpfully explains:

    When once the fight (Jihad) is entered upon, carry it out with the utmost vigor, and strike home your blows at the most vital points (smite at their necks), both literally and figuratively. You cannot wage war with kid gloves. [Italicized parentheticals in original.]

    Sura 8 underscores the point with another of Allah’s exhortations: “I am with you: Give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: Smite ye above their necks and smite ye all their fingertips off them.”

    Following the 9/11 attacks, Americans Daniel Pearl and Nick Berg were among prisoners notoriously decapitated by al-Qaeda. Reacting to their beheadings, Timothy Furnish, a U.S. Army veteran with a doctorate in Islamic history, wrote a comprehensive Middle East Quarterly essay on “Beheading in the Name of Islam.” As Dr. Furnish recounted,

    The practice of beheading non-Muslim captives extends back to the Prophet himself. Ibn Ishaq (d. 768 C.E.), the earliest biographer of Muhammad, is recorded as saying that the Prophet ordered the execution by decapitation of 700 men of the Jewish Banu Qurayza tribe in Medina for allegedly plotting against him.

    As is always the case, the prophet’s example has been emulated by Muslims through the centuries. When Muslims conquered central Spain in the eleventh century, for example, the caliph had 24,000 corpses beheaded; the remains were piled into makeshift minarets atop which muezzins sang the praises of Allah. In more modern times, Furnish adds, “The Ottoman Empire was the decapitation state par excellence” — employing the practice to terrorize enemies for centuries, including, to take just one of many examples, beheading hundreds of British soldiers captured in Egypt in 1807.

Nonetheless, we get protestations such as this from Mr. Mohammed of the Oklahoma mosque attended by the beheader:

Both Mohammad and [senior imam] Enchassi denounced Nolen’s actions, saying his behavior is not in keeping with Islam, which they emphasized is a religion of peace.

“He is as far away from Islam as he can be,” Mohammad said.

So, who are we going to believe: the Oklahoma Muslims or the Koran: (Unbelievers: Smite ye above their necks and smite ye all their fingertips off them.”)?

The media and government establishments clearly want us to believe the former. Mark Steyn writes:

    …as the initial reports were at pains to assure us, it's nothing to do with terrorism. That's true, in the sense that Mr Nolen is not a card-carrying member of an officially credentialed state-recognized terrorism-provider such as ISIS or al-Qaeda. It's true in the sense that he's not on any official US Department of Homeland Security terror watch list, because, under the geniuses running American national security, that honor is reserved for my fellow Hillsdale cruiser Steve Hayes. And, of course, it's also true in the sense that Mr Nolen is a recent convert to Islam and, as David Cameron and Barack Obama and many others are ever more eager to emphasize, terrorism is nothing to do with Islam. Mr Nolen had the Muslim greeting "As-salamu Alaikum" - "Peace be upon you" - tattooed upon his abdomen. And he'd tried, without success, to persuade his co-workers at Vaughan Foods to convert to Islam. So he wasn't just mildly Islamic in the nothing-to-do-with-terrorism sense, he was super-Islamic in the really-totally-no-terrorism-to-see-here sense.

    So Colleen Hufford's death was, as Jim Hoft put it, just "a random workplace beheading".

Second Amendment Vs. Islamic State In Oklahoma

War On Terror: The Islamic State's call for "lone wolf" attacks on Western infidels might have met its match in the Second Amendment, as an armed man saves lives by shooting a jihadist wannabe bent on heeding that call.

Vaughan Foods employee Traci Johnson is alive today because the business she works for is not a gun-free zone at a time when the Islamic State is encouraging attacks on infidels in the West like the one in Moore, Okla., where co-worker Colleen Hufford was stabbed and beheaded.

The alleged attacker, 30-year-old Alton Nolen, was stopped as he was stabbing and preparing to behead Johnson by Mark Vaughan, the food distributor's chief operating officer. Vaughn, who is also a reserve county deputy, drew the gun he was carrying and stopped Nolen, police say, before he could claim more victims.

"This was not going to stop if he (Vaughan) did not stop it," Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis told the media.

Some will claim this is more "workplace violence" — a phrase used by the Obama administration to describe the carnage left by Maj. Nidal Hassan at Ft. Hood — the work of a disgruntled ex-employee with no significance beyond that.

But the similarities are eerie and may indicate the shape of a new threat we face.

Nolen was a recent convert to Islam and while still an employee at Vaughan tried to convert his co-workers, they said. He was convicted in 2011 of multiple felony drug offenses, assault and battery on a police officer and escaping from detention.

He was released from prison in March 2013. It is suspected that much of his Islamic conversion occurred while he was in prison, an increasingly common phenomenon among African-American inmates.

Nolen's Facebook page contains such items as a burning lower Manhattan after the 9/11 attacks and a photo of the pope with the caption "Sharia Law is coming!"

In March, Nolen posted a gruesome photo of a beheading with the explanation that "Islamic terrorists behead their victims" because of a precedent bestowed by their prophet, a reference to the Prophet Mohammed's frequent beheadings of those he considered infidels.

Nolen might be a lone wolf, but he's just the type the Islamic State is looking for: individuals angry at a society and culture they see as victimizing and oppressing them.

They don't need to sneak across the border — they're already here. They don't even need passports, which many have, such as the Minneapolis airport worker who fought and died for IS in Syria.

No direct connection has been established. But Nolen is what IS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani said the group is looking for in a videotaped statement released shortly before the attack in Moore.

"If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that just joined a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way, however that might be."

That was the possible motivation of 18-year-old Abdul Numan Haider, who was shot dead after he stabbed two Australian counterterrorism officers on Sept. 23, police said. Haider had been asked to come to a police station after he'd been seen with an Islamic State flag at a shopping center.

The incident happened mere days after Australian authorities conducted raids nabbing 15 suspected of IS ties.

The Islamic State has issued a global call to lone wolves. One could be standing behind you on the bus, walking next you at the mall or sitting in the next cubicle. In the age of the Islamic State and solo terrorism, gun-free zones are simply an invitation for a terrorist attack.

In Moore, Okla., the life-saving value of the Second Amendment was proved once again. It may be our secret weapon in the ongoing war against terrorism.

FBI: Chicago man threatened beheadings at SIU


ST. LOUIS (AP) — Federal investigators say a Chicago man accused of mailing threats of rapes, killings, bombings and beheadings at a Southern Illinois University campus he attended brought himself to authorities’ attention.

Investigators arrested 21-year-old Derrick Dawon Burns on Monday on eight charges related to the mailings over a yearlong span in 2012 and last year.

Online court records don’t show whether Burns has an attorney. He’s jailed without bond, pending a hearing Wednesday.

The FBI says Burns drew investigators’ scrutiny in July when he separately called SIU-Carbondale police and the FBI and insisted a man called “Big Russ” told him about the threats.

The FBI alleges investigators traced those calls back to Burns and fingerprints on four of the seven threatening letters later were matched to Burns.

Prosecutor downplays Islamic aspects of Oklahoma beheading

Title: Re: The Islamic Apocalypse!!

Oklahoma Beheader WAS NOT FIRED, the Islamic Ritual Slaughter Was “Premeditated”

Jah’Keem Yisrael, Islamic State jihadist, was not fired. He was suspended. He was screaming Islamic verses as he beheaded Colleen Hufford.

It was premeditated Islamic ritual slaughter — Jah’Keem went home, grabbed “a large bladed knife” and “returned to get revenge” — sharia-style. In the plant’s administrative office, police say, Nolen attacked 54-year-old Colleen Hufford from behind and severed her head from her body.

The criminal complaint released today states that Nolen drove to his home “for the sole reason to retrieve a large bladed knife.” He then went back to work “with the large knife in his shoe, in order to assault an employee of the business with the knife.”

He walked into the plant’s administrative office and came across 54-year-old Colleen Hufford, whom he attacked from behind, severing her head. He then turned his attention to Tracy Johnson, 43, whom he cut across the left side of the face and also tried to behead. She survived.

    “What we know about Alton Nolen, who has been charged with murder in the Oklahoma beheading case”, Washington Post, September 30, 2014

Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn announces that first-degree murder and assault charges have been filed against Alton Nolen during a Sept. 30 news conference in Norman, Okla. (Steve Sisney/The Oklahoman via Associated Press)

    Alton Nolen was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and assault in the decapitation of a former co-worker at a processing plant in Oklahoma. He could face the death penalty, a county prosecutor said.

    The gruesome nature of the attack coupled with the religious adherence of the suspect has attracted significant attention to the case, from well beyond the borders of Moore, a community previously known for a devastating EF5 tornado that killed more than two dozen people and destroyed 1,000 homes.

    The beheading has also sparked endless speculation — not to mention considerable debate over what to call it.

    Here’s what we know about Nolen so far.
    Nolen was suspended just before the attack

    Police originally said that Nolen, 30, entered a Vaughan Foods processing plant on Thursday afternoon shortly after being “terminated.” But in an affidavit released Tuesday, police said Nolen had actually been suspended just before the incident.

    He then went home, the affidavit said, and grabbed “a large bladed knife.” At that point, according to Cleveland County Prosecutor Greg Mashburn, Nolen “returned to get revenge.” In the plant’s administrative office, police say, Nolen attacked 54-year-old Colleen Hufford from behind and severed her head from her body.

    Nolen then attacked 43-year-old Traci Johnson, another employee, before he was stopped by the company’s chief operating officer, Mark Vaughan. Vaughan, a reserve deputy with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department, shot Nolen with a rifle, stopping the attack. Both Nolen and Johnson were hospitalized.

    Johnson was released from the hospital Saturday, after receiving treatment for multiple stab wounds. Nolen remains in stable condition.

    The police affidavit said Nolen was suspended after Johnson initiated a complaint. According to Mashburn, the prosecutor, Johnson complained following an argument “about [Nolen] not liking white people.”

Islam: The Awful Truth

Islam is violent and repressive, and its sacred texts are the heart of darkness at the center of the Islamic State's inspiration and motivation, despite Barack Obama's assertions in September 10th's address to the nation that the Islamic State "is not Islamic" and that "no religion condones the killing of innocents." Violence is an integral part of Islamic doctrine, following the example set by its Prophet Mohammed, and in the name of Islam and Allah, Muslims have been murdering innocents, since 656 AD.

Six hundred years after Mohammed, one of Islam's most respected scholars, Ibn Khuldan wrote 'Muqaddimah' (Introduction to History), which explained: "In the Muslim community, the holy war is religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and [the obligation to] convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or force."

Like most good Muslims, Khaldun's inspiration came from 'The Verse of the Sword', Sura 9:5, "revealed" towards the end of Mohammed's life, as well as similar themes previous to Sura 9:

Sura 9:5__ “...kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them ... But if they repent and perform As-Salat/ Iqamat-as-Salat [the Islamic ritual prayers], then leave their way free..." Also Sura 9:33__ "It is He [Allah] Who has sent His Messenger [Mohammed] with guidance and the religion of truth [Islam], to make it superior over all religions..."

The Hindu Kush, seventy-five thousand square miles between Afghanistan and Pakistan, was populated by Hindus until approximately 1000 AD and the Muslim invasions. An estimated 60 million Hindus were murdered by Muslims over a thousand year reign, and Hindu Kush is the Muslim name for the region. It means "Hindu Killer.”

Now today, the majority of the Muslim community worldwide, including the U.S., does not completely frown on their "holy warriors" in the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Jaamat e-Islami and any other terror group one cares to mention, for fear of being called heretics or apostates themselves. The murderous "holy warriors" are following a literal interpretation of Koranic scripture, without omissions, innovation or revision. By contrast, heretical views deviate from doctrine.

The 2013 PEW Poll of the Muslim World shows that the majority of Muslims, in several countries, support the death penalty for Muslims who leave Islam, including Malaysia (58%), Egypt (88%), Jordan (83%), Afghanistan (79%), Gaza and the West Bank (62%) and Pakistan (75%); in 2006, a poll for 'The Sunday Telegraph' found 40% of British Muslims wanted Sharia Law in the UK and 20% supported the 7/7 bombers. And alarmingly, in 2011 nineteen percent of American Muslims stated they viewed Al Qaeda favorably, while a new poll shows 16% of the French population view the Islamic State favorably.

Are you beginning to see a pattern here?

Logical minded Americans were not fooled by the big lie Obama delivered before the United Nations on September 24th, when he spoke of Islam's "great tradition that stands for ... the dignity of life, not murder.” Americans see a significant number of Muslims still support Sharia Law, slavery, **** and Islamic inspired violence and murder in this 21st century, and rather than "a religion of peace," Islam always has been and always will be an ideology of violence and conquest.

Don't get me wrong. I am thankful for the many Muslims who simply adhere to the first early peaceful verses of the Koran, but let's not allow that to dissuade us from seeing and revealing the fact that Islam was propagated through violence, staying with Mohammed's teachings, and it is still utilizing violence today. This can clearly be seen by examining the teachings of Islam, the daily news reports and practically any good, scholarly history book.

One problem in Islamic tradition, affirmed by many scholars, is the doctrine of abrogation, which states that later revelation to Mohammed supersedes prior revelation. And the Koranic verses ordering Muslims to fight and slay infidels, Christians and Jews came after those admonishing Muslims to live with non-believers in peace and without religious compulsion.

As Obama spoke before the UN, he called on the Islamic nations and their leaders to address the spread of "extremism," full well knowing that he was speaking to the very advocates of Wahabbist fundamentalism, other Islamic orthodoxies and proponents of inflexible, intolerant Islamic scholars, the likes of Sayyid Qutb. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, for example, have supported terrorism and financed the spread of Wahabbism and Qutb's Islamic philosophy globally, including in America, for decades.

And now Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and several others, who helped create, train and fund the Islamic State, are screaming for the U.S. and the West to end the vicious advance of the Islamic State. They look to destroy the Islamic State, only because they can no longer control its self-appointed "caliph," Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has announced his intentions to take Mecca and Medina; so, it is fear of losing their power and their regimes that motivates them, not any disagreement with the Islamic State's implementation of jihad and the violent doctrines of Islam.

What about the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hezb’allah, which means "the party of Allah," and Hamas, which means "Islamic Resistance Movement"? Does Obama deem these Islamic entities "not Islamic" too?

As Obama appealed to young Muslims to follow their "great tradition [Islam] that stands for education ... innovation, not destruction," he must have intentionally forgotten some of the other traditions of Islam. The recent spate of beheadings of Westerners by the Islamic State is only the old made new again, and although horrible beyond belief, they actually pale in comparison to the heinous atrocities committed in the name of Allah across the centuries. Three thousand Catholic nuns were raped at the Church of St Sophia during the sacking of Constantinople in 1453, and many other women and children were simply torn to pieces.

Hadith 107:13_ It was shown the Prophet said, "Allah wrote everything we need to know about Ihsan [kindness] so if you kill, perfect your killing and if you slaughter, perfect your slaughter, perfect your slaughter and sharpen your blade and comfort your sacrifice."

Koran 8:12 "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them."

Millions of devout fundamentalist orthodox Muslims, devout in the manner of Osama bin Laden, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, are making preparations and have already been waging a divinely endorsed war against Europe, America and Israel. And, rather than continue against all reason and, in the light of Islam's sacred texts, to propagate the lie that "Islam is peace," which is placing America within a quagmire of reoccurring expansionist jihad, this administration and future administrations must cut all funding to all Islamic nations and acknowledge that "extremism" and violence are the basis of Islam, if America is to win the future war against Islam.

Husain Abdullah's prayer: NFL sorry for flagging prayer of TD-celebrating Muslim

Husain Abdullah's “prayer penalty” is the latest in a turnstile of NFL PR nightmares. Perhaps hoping to avoid a protracted detonation of pie-in-the-face controversy, the league issued swift apologies for tossing the yellow flag against the Kansas City Chiefs for Abdullah falling to the ground and prostrating himself to Allah. An official declared it “unsportsmanlike conduct,” and penalized the Chiefs 15 yards.

Abdullah's prayer, after he scored a pick-six of Tom Brady in the Chief’s rout Monday night, touches off a larger discussion of religion in sports. Writes USA Today on Oct. 2: “Prayer matters to most of us. Especially the devoted sports fans. A new national survey releasing this week shows that 48% of Americans pray every day. Two thirds (65% of Americans) say they pray at least once a month. In fact, the same survey shows that 13% of the people who pray, pray for their team to win.”

The NFL, for its part, acted with swift contrition. NFL Spokesperson Michael Signora said that the helmet-to-turf prayer of Abdullah’s “should not have been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct following his fourth quarter touchdown.”

Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1(d) of the NFL rulebook states that “players are prohibited from engaging in any celebrations or demonstrations while on the ground.” That said, Signora explained that the “officiating mechanic in this situation is not to flag a player who goes to the ground as part of religious expression, and as a result, there should have been no penalty on the play.”

The NFL Referees Association has a different take. On Thursday, retired referee and former NFLRA president Scott Green said the flag was correct, since the player slid on his knees.

"Both the officials and the player involved in the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty were not confused as to why a flag was thrown. The player was flagged, correctly, for the slide on his knees in the end zone, not for going to the ground in a prayerful gesture
," Green said. "On field officials are aware of the prayer provision and respect the right of players of all faiths to express themselves."

So pray away, just don't use your momentum to get into your humble stance?

Within minutes after the flag was tossed social media lit up with an eruption of those calling foul on the “discriminatory” penalty.

Writes Yahoo News: “A controversy had begun to brew overnight for the beleaguered league, which is still enduring criticism over its handling of cases of domestic abuse this season. Many began to question whether the 15-yard penalty for ‘celebrating on the ground’ amounted to a form of religious discrimination.”

Players routinely make religious gestures after being involved in big plays – the point skyward, the sign of the cross, and of course, the Internet meme Tebowing: going one knee with head down in solemn prayer.

Abdullah, who sat out the entire 2012 season to go on a religious pilgrimage, was gracious about it all, saying he “just got a little too excited,” and he thinks, as the NFLRA does, that the flag was not for the prayer, but “for the slide” going into the prone position.

Do you think God really favors one team or certain players over another? Sound off below with your thoughts on Husain Abdullah's prayer.

Pregnant Austrian teens in ISIS: We’ve made a huge mistake

Two Austrian teens got way more than they bargained for when they abandoned their homes and families to become “poster girls” for ISIS terrorists, and now they desperately want to come home.

Samra Kesinovic, 17, and friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, would love to press the undo button on the last six months, during which they traded their comfortable existence in Europe for a life of evil engineered by terrorists.

The teens are believed to be married, pregnant and living in the ISIS-controlled city of Raqqa in northern Syria, Central European News reports.

That’s a change of heart from the April note they left behind for their parents that read: “Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah, and we will die for him.”

For weeks, social-media accounts believed to belong to the girls had been posting pictures and information that seemed to suggest the young duo enjoyed living a life of terror.

The pictures showed the two girls smiling and wearing their new Muslim garb, sometimes while flanked by armed fighters.

Some of the images appeared to show the girls carrying weapons.

But authorities in Austria say it was all an elaborate plan set up by ISIS to persuade the world that the two wanted to be the poster girls for jihad in Syria.

Some of the images may have been faked, including some that were taken years earlier of other women and re-posted on the girls social-media pages, Austrian authorities said.

“It is clear that whoever is operating their pages it probably is not the girls and that they are being used for propaganda,” said one Austrian security official.

The teens apparently were lured to ISIS by propaganda preached at their local mosque.

Clerics told them that the only way to know true peace was to head to Syria and take part in the holy war, officials said.

The girls had started lecturing schoolmates about their lifestyle and were even suspected of being behind a vandalism attack at their school calling for jihad.

Austrian media are reporting that Kesinovic and Selimovic have said enough is enough and want to return to their families.Photo: Europics

Now Kesinovic and Selimovic have had enough and are eager to return to their families, according to CEN. The girls reportedly managed to get word to their families they want to come home.

But reports also said the teens don’t feel they can flee because too many people now associate them with ISIS savagery.

“The main problem is about people coming back to Austria,” said Austrian Interior Ministry spokesman Karl-Heinz Grundboeck. “Once they leave, it is almost impossible.”

Kesinovic and Selimovic are among the bevy of women ISIS has recruited from around the world. Although its strict interpretation of Islamic law limits a woman’s place in society, women are often recruited into vital support roles through aggressive social-media campaigns that promise devout jihadist husbands.

In May, 16-year-old British twin sisters followed their older brother to Syria so they could marry jihadists, according to London’s Daily Mail.

Several weeks ago, a 16-year-old was arrested at a French airport under suspicion she was traveling to Syria to join Islamist rebels.

A 15-year-old French girl named Nora, the daughter of Moroccan immigrants, was lured by Syria through Facebook, according to her brother Foad.

She has said she wants to come home, and Foad traveled to Syria — but he was not allowed to leave with her.

“As soon as they manage to snare a girl, they do everything they can to keep her,” Foad said.

“Girls aren’t there for combat, just for marriage and children. A reproduction machine.”

War against Isis: US strategy in tatters as militants march on
World View: AmericanObama-led air attacks are failing. Jihadis are close to taking Kobani, in Syria – and in Iraq western Baghdad is now under serious threat

If American air power was properly used their would be no country on Earth that could stand against us.

America's plans to fight Islamic State are in ruins as the militant group's fighters come close to capturing Kobani and have inflicted a heavy defeat on the Iraqi army west of Baghdad.

The US-led air attacks launched against Islamic State (also known as Isis) on 8 August in Iraq and 23 September in Syria have not worked. President Obama's plan to "degrade and destroy" Islamic State has not even begun to achieve success. In both Syria and Iraq, Isis is expanding its control rather than contracting.

Isis reinforcements have been rushing towards Kobani in the past few days to ensure that they win a decisive victory over the Syrian Kurdish town's remaining defenders. The group is willing to take heavy casualties in street fighting and from air attacks in order to add to the string of victories it has won in the four months since its forces captured Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq, on 10 June. Part of the strength of the fundamentalist movement is a sense that there is something inevitable and divinely inspired about its victories, whether it is against superior numbers in Mosul or US airpower at Kobani.

In the face of a likely Isis victory at Kobani, senior US officials have been trying to explain away the failure to save the Syrian Kurds in the town, probably Isis's toughest opponents in Syria. "Our focus in Syria is in degrading the capacity of [Isis] at its core to project power, to command itself, to sustain itself, to resource itself," said US Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken, in a typical piece of waffle designed to mask defeat. "The tragic reality is that in the course of doing that there are going to be places like Kobani where we may or may not be able to fight effectively."

Unfortunately for the US, Kobani isn't the only place air strikes are failing to stop Isis. In an offensive in Iraq launched on 2 October but little reported in the outside world, Isis has captured almost all the cities and towns it did not already hold in Anbar province, a vast area in western Iraq that makes up a quarter of the country. It has captured Hit, Kubaisa and Ramadi, the provincial capital, which it had long fought for. Other cities, towns and bases on or close to the Euphrates River west of Baghdad fell in a few days, often after little resistance by the Iraqi Army which showed itself to be as dysfunctional as in the past, even when backed by US air strikes.

Whatever side of the conspiracy you find yourself on, there are certain facts that are not up for dispute. On 09,11.01 the twin towers of the world trade were brought down by Muslims flying jetliners into the sides of the buildings, and bringing them down in massive explosions. This one, single act brought Muslim Islamic terrorism front and center on the world stage and it has not left us for a moment since then.

The New World Order has used that event to bring us along on the the forward march into an American police state. Within one year of the bombings, Verichip Corp released the implantable RFID microchip. Then came the Patriot Act, followed at the same time with the invasion of Iraq and Afganistan in the Middle East. Nazi-style checkpoints were created at all airports and transportation areas. Anyone wanting to fly anywhere in America must submit themselves to the molestation of the TSA gestapos. Obama’s NSA taps all cell phone communications, Internet, text messaging and social media to store them in the digital concentration camps of places like the Utah Data Center. Nearly every major intersection now has 24 hour “red light cameras” to record who comes and goes.

America is on permanent lockdown, and no one seems to care.

Claiming victory for Islam

When Muslims claim victory in a military conquest, they do two things. They build a mosque on or near the site of the battle, and then they raise up a minaret as high as it will go to show the world that that land has been claimed as an Islamic victory. On September 22, 2011, they opened Park 51, otherwise known as the Ground Zero Mosque. Step one was completed.


Step two happened on May 10, 2013, with the raising of an Islamic minaret to sit triumphantly atop the One World Trade Center. Look at the above graphic and tell me what you see. With the exception that one can send broadcast signals and the other cannot, what would be the difference? An intellectually honest person would be forced to agree.

In New York City, both mayoral candidates said that they fully supported adding Muslim holidays to the school calendar. We have a president who was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia who simply will not prosecute Islamic crimes against American citizens. When the American Consulate in Libya was attacked, and four Americans brutally killed, Obama did nothing then and is doing nothing about it now.

Even the name of this new tower, the ONE WORLD Trade Center, tells you everything you need to know about the One World Government thats coming. I believe that when the roundup begins for the FEMA Concentration Camps, this tower will be one of the main points of entry, and you will go in under the shadow of the highest Islamic minaret in the world. Irony doesn’t get much more pointed than that.

Maryland school district strikes Christmas from calendar after requests for religious equality

Christmas will no longer be on next year’s school calendar for a Maryland school district – after requests from local Muslim leaders to also acknowledge their holidays.

Montgomery County Public Schools’ Board of Education voted 7 to 1 on Tuesday to strike all references to religious celebrations for 2015-2016.

“We were blindsided. We are disappointed,” Zainab Chaudry, spokeswoman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), told Yahoo News Wednesday.

“It isn’t what we asked for. We don’t believe that other faith groups should be punished for our request.”

As in previous years, all schools in the district will be closed on the major Jewish and Christian holidays because those days show a high number of absenteeism – not in observance of those celebrations, according to Montgomery spokesman Dana Tofig.

“This is similar to what many districts across the country do,” Tofig said to Yahoo News. “They refer to winter break as winter break and spring break as spring break.”

Tofig explains that the district must have a “secular, operational reason” for closing schools.

“A decision was made 40 years ago based on high absenteeism among students and staff to close on days like Rosh Hashanah,” he said. “It’s important to note that we cannot close school for religious reasons.”

But to many activists, it appears the school would rather get rid of religious observances altogether than bring Muslim holidays into the fold.

“I think this really shows that the Board of Education would take drastic measures to ensure that the Muslim students don’t receive equal and fair treatment,” Chaudry said.

For several years, CAIR and other Muslim activists have asked the district to add Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha to the school calendar.

“This is something that the community has been working for for over a decade,” she added. “We have been working hard to raise awareness.”

Eid ul-Fitr, or the “feast of fast breaking,” marks the end of Ramadan and Eid ul-Adha falls at the end of the pilgrimage to Mecca, or Hajj. They are major holidays for Islam.

Next year, the latter and Yom Kippur will fall on the same date: September 23rd. But Montgomery schools were only going to reference Yom Kippur for the closure.

So CAIR requested “politely but firmly” for Eid ul-Adha to be mentioned as part of the reason.

However, Tofig says, absenteeism on Muslim holidays is not significantly higher than any other day. This led to simply scrapping spirituality the equation.

Montgomery County is often touted as the state’s most inclusive but Chaudry, a Maryland native, says this clearly is not the case.

“We feel like our students are being treated like second-class citizens,” she said.

Mom Questions School For Portraying Muslims As More Faithful Than Christians

November 14, 2014

Is the faith of most Muslims “stronger” than that of the typical Christian? That’s what one public high school in North Carolina apparently is teaching students.

Outraged over the “correct” answers to her son’s ninth-grade assignment about Islam, a mother in Union County, N.C., turned to local news reporters to shed light on his school’s fill-in-the-blank worksheet.

Upsetting the mom most? A statement that read, “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.”


“If you are going to do it, let’s do it right,” the mother—who asked not to be identified—told WJYZ-TV. “I really feel there is a spin on this.”

A ninth-grade world history teacher at Porter Ridge High School in Indian Trail, N.C., assigned the in-class worksheet.

School officials have not confirmed that “faith is stronger” is the correct answer to the fill in that particular blank, despite several requests by reporters at WJYZ, a Fox affiliate.

Other statements on the assignment include “Islam, at heart, is a peaceful religion.”

This is the second report of a parent expressing outrage over a child’s Islam-related school assignment in recent weeks.

In October, an Iraq veteran was banned from his daughter’s high school after objecting to a required homework assignment about Islam.

Kevin Wood, father of an 11th-grader at La Plata High School in Charles County, Md., was upset to discover a teacher had asked his daughter to write a three-page essay about Islam’s Five Pillars, Mecca and Mohammed.

“I don’t agree with it,” Wood said in a phone interview with Fox News. “I said you can’t study God or Christianity in school; you have atheists suing schools for saying God and the Pledge [of Allegiance], and not being able to say prayers before football games … but we can force-feed our kids Islam.”

World leaders and especially Western ones care--really care--about the horror of Islamist terrorism, even while still telling the great unwashed that only Islamaphobes identify Islamist terrorism as Islamist terrorism

In America “Je suis Charlie” devolving to “Stand with the Prophet”


‘World leaders’ who responded like sharks to chum at the “Je suis Charlie” mass rally in Paris on Sunday soon returned to their offices to carry on with what they always do: forging the same lax immigration policies that allow the barbarians to get in through the gates and patently ignoring the inevitability of the next Islamic terrorist attack.
But before leaving Paris they had firmly planted in the minds of the throngs what they thought would live on as an indelible picture:

World leaders and especially Western ones care—really care—about the horror of Islamist terrorism, even while still telling the great unwashed that only Islamaphobes identify Islamist terrorism as Islamist terrorism.

‘Look!” their Parisienne pictures shout to the world,  ‘We came rushing to the scene, n’est pas?’  ‘We linked arms with each other, jostled only a few moments for prime front line position, and went bravely on to lead the march for “Je Suis Charlie”.’

Was it really the fault of the leaders if public attention was naturally turned away from the 1million-plus people who took to the streets to mark what Pope Francis called “the tragic slayings” of 17 people after Islamist terrorists attacked the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and took people hostage in the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket?

Attention was focused on the 40 leaders whose pictures failed to prove that they were more Charlie than the public soul of the “Je Suis Charlie” movement.  In all languages spoken among the grassroots people, what they did is called “stealing the show”.

Knowing there was no guarantee that he would be the center of attention, Barack Hussein Obama took a pass, staying home to watch football games.  Right there at the time of the mass rally, his Attorney General Eric Holder was a No Show,  but days after the big event,  Secretary of State John Kerry will mop up on any leftover publicity, by defending AWOL Americans en français.

“Je Suis Charlie” Morphed into ‘Je Suis Obama’ Before the Entire World
Is today’s Paris rally for terrorist attack victims being politician hijacked?
Daily Mail scribe Richard Littlejohn, describing how the event “smacked of a synchronised selfie”  and how it looked as if the leaders in attendance “were about to break in to the hokey-cokey‘,  shows how some leaders remain true to form, no matter how tragic the circumstances:

“David Cameron managed to nab pole position, linking arms with the attractive blonde woman who runs Denmark.

He does, of course, have previous with Helle Thorning-Schmidt, having muscled his way into a photograph she was taking of herself and Barack Obama at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

Call Me Dave might have got away with one intimate photo draped around a fit blonde. Two starts to look like stalking, especially when it’s the same bird.”

“As for all those self-important EU leaders, it is their suicidal approach to mass immigration, their beloved human rights laws and their craven appeasement of firebrand preachers of hate which allows Islamist terrorism to flourish in the West,” Littlejohn wrote.

“Just as I predicted on Friday, we have been told repeatedly that these atrocities are ‘nothing to do with Islam’. It was a couple of days before Cameron could even bring himself to utter the phrase ‘Islamist terrorists’.

“Fear of being accused of ‘Islamophobia’ has prevented the authorities in Britain, at least, from robustly confronting the cancer in our midst.”

Will the flocking of 40 world leaders to the “Je Suis Charlie” rally curtail in any way, rampaging Islamic terrorism?

“ISIS fighters attempting to retake a town in northern Iraq held by Kurdish peshmerga forces killed at least 30 Kurds, an Iraqi military spokesman said Sunday. (DailyStar, Jan 12. 2015)

Obama’s no-boots-on-the-ground dictum proves that a months long airstrike campaign by a U.S.-led coalition hasn’t stopped the ability of ISIS to launch offensives in Iraq.

That was the news on Sunday.

By Monday hackers claiming allegiance to the Islamic State had taken full control of the social media accounts of the U.S. military’s Central Command, posting threatening messages and propaganda videos, along with some military documents.

“The command’s Twitter and YouTube accounts were eventually taken offline, but not before a string of tweets and the release of military documents, some of which listed contact information for senior military personnel. A Centcom spokesman confirmed their accounts were “compromised,” and said later that the accounts have been taken offline while the incident is investigated more.” (Washington Post, Jan. 12, 2015)

Within a week of the Paris rally, the chant has gone from “Je suis Charlie”,  to the arrogant “Je suis Obama” all the way to: “Stand with the Prophet”.

“Muslim leaders from across America will gather in Texas this weekend to hold the annual Stand With the Prophet in Honor and Respect conference, a weekend forum that is being billed as a “movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message,” according to event information. (Washington Free Beacon, Jan. 12, 2015)

“The Saturday event, which seeks to combat “Islamaphobes in America” who have turned the Islamic Prophet Muhammad “into an object of hate,” according to organizers, comes just a week after radicalized Islamists in France killed 17 people.”

“Organizers of the event place the blame for Islam’s bad reputation on the media and so-called American Islamophobes who have “invested at least $160 million dollars to attack our Prophet and Islam,” according to the conference web page.”

Proof positive that nothing’s changed, and that politicians who preen for the cameras with linked arms at public rallies that more rightfully belong to the grieving grassroots do diddly-squat to stop Islamic terrorism.  They only accelerate it.

Democrats defend naming Muslim to House Intelligence panel

WASHINGTON (AP) — Top Democrats are defending their appointment of a Muslim congressman to the House Intelligence Committee after protests erupted on social media, warning the move is dangerous.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi this week appointed Rep. Andre Carson of Indiana to the panel, which oversees the government's intelligence departments and activities. Much of the business that comes before the committee is classified.

Anti-Muslim protests erupted on Twitter and other social media with complaints that exposing American secrets to Carson could be dangerous.

Democrats widely rejected that view. Pelosi said Carson is the only member of Congress to have served in a Department of Homeland Security Fusion Center, which provides intelligence sharing and training across levels of government. Carson also serves on the House Armed Services Committee.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the senior Democrat on the panel, called the protests un-American. He said including Muslim Americans in public policy issues is "an essential element in preventing the kind of alienation that has made too many young European Muslims vulnerable to extremism."

Rep. Joseph Crowley of New York, vice chairman of the Democratic Caucus, called on his colleagues to renounce the attacks.

"We will never be able to grow as a society if we allow this kind of hatred and division to go unchecked," Crowley wrote in a letter to his colleagues.

Tony Blair: force is necessary in struggle against radical Islam

The former UK prime minister speaks at a Republican closed-door strategy session and also stresses importance of ‘global alliance to teach tolerance’

Tony Blair has called for a US-led effort to confront the “substantial minority” of Muslims who support terrorism, during a meeting with top Republicans that reunited the former British prime minister with hawks in the party who believe the White House response to recent attacks has been too limited.

According to a source present at a closed-door strategy session attended by nearly 300 Republican senators and congressmen, the former prime minister argued that force would be needed in what he called a “generational” struggle, but more important would be a “global alliance to teach tolerance” as millions of people in the Muslim world are systematically being taught to be intolerant.

Blair, who was introduced by Senator John McCain, also reportedly argued that radical Islam and the terrorism associated with it had not been contained; that countries in the west “didn’t cause it but were caught up in it”; that it was neither isolated nor insignificant and that while the majority of Muslims opposed it, “a substantial and not a fringe minority” supported it.

A spokeswoman for Blair’s private office confirmed to the Guardian that he spoke about the “Middle East peace process, as well as issues relating to the wider region” in his capacity as representative of the Middle East quartet, which represents the United Nations, US, European Union and Russia. She declined to give any further information on the contents of his speech, which was not open to reporters.

An estimated 300 congressional staff members were also present at the meeting, which greeted Blair with standing ovations after he was introduced, at the conclusion of his remarks and after a brief question-and-answer session. There was also frequent applause as he spoke, according to those present.

The meeting came hours before the current UK prime minister, David Cameron, was due to hold talks with Barack Obama over dinner at the White House. The two leaders were expected to discuss the west’s response to recent attacks such as the shooting of journalists and hostages in Paris last week.

Blair appeared to have struck a more confrontational tone, arguing that a variety of factors contributed to radical Islam, but at root it was a struggle within Islam about the nature of the faith and its relationship with other religious communities.

According to the witness, Blair said radical Islam was a perverted ideology that justified the use of force against those of other religions or Muslims who interpreted their faith differently. It was hostile to “us and our values”, he claimed, and though some want to negotiate with it or ignore it, neither of those approaches would work and it had to be confronted.

The former prime minister also talked about the lessons of the post-9/11 era. He reportedly argued that the US and UK had learned that if you topple dictators, you release other forces that have to be dealt with. However, the Arab Spring demonstrated that many of those dictatorships would be swept away in any event.

It was hard to be successful “unless you had allies within Islam itself”, he reportedly said, adding that the Middle East would continue to evolve away from what it is and that unless extremism was fought it would continue to grow. He was said to be “extremely concerned” about the emergence of the Islamic State (Isis) in Syria and Iraq.

Nonetheless, the former prime minister was said be hopeful about the prospect of building further alliances in the Middle East, arguing that many Islamic leaders in recent years had come to understand that they too were the targets of radical Islam. He even thought that over time there could be an alliance of sorts between Israel and the Arab states against radical Islam.

But he concluded that America would have to play a leading role in what he thought would be a “generational” struggle and urged the Republicans present not to disengage and to rise to the task and recognise it was “our problem as well as theirs”.

Blair’s office said he was not paid to speak at the Republican lunch, which was held in Hershey, Pennsylvania, but received travel expenses.

Anti-Charlie Hebdo rioters torch seven churches in Niger

Niamey (AFP) - Rioters burned at least seven churches Saturday in Niamey over the publication of a Prophet Mohammed cartoon on the cover of France's Charlie Hebdo weekly, an AFP correspondent reported.

Protesters were also headed for other churches in the capital of the poor west African country, the AFP reporter said.

"Some of us stayed barricaded in our homes. I have never been so scared in my life," a Christian mechanic told AFP.

"The government must put a stop to this," he added. "It doesn't look good for us."

Bars, hotels and various businesses under non-Muslim ownership or bearing signs of French companies were also targeted.

"As soon as the protesters started toward the grand mosque we knew this was coming," said Kiema Soumaila, manager of the Toulousain a well-known bar in Niamey.

"They burned everything after smashing anything that was glass on the road," Soumaila added.

About six groups of 200 to 300 protesters were believed to be rampaging through the city, a security source said.

Around 100 helmeted riot police stood in front of the Niamey cathedral at midday, protecting it from a crowd of stone-throwing youths.

Police had used tear gas earlier in the day to disperse a crowd of about 1,000 young people massed in front of Niamey's grand mosque who were armed with iron bars and clubs.

France's embassy in its former colony warned French citizens to stay indoors after rioters ransacked several French-linked businesses, including telephone kiosks run by Orange.

The satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo has repeatedly published cartoons of Mohammed over the years and its latest issue, released on Wednesday, features a cartoon of Mohammed on its cover holding a "Je Suis Charlie" (I Am Charlie) sign under the headline "All Is Forgiven".

It came a week after attacks by three Islamists on its offices, a kosher supermarket and a policewoman left 17 people dead in and around Paris over three days, deeply shocking the country and sparking an outpouring of international support.

Many Muslims see any depiction of Islam's prophet as offensive, while many Western governments have defended Charlie Hebdo's right to freedom of expression.

German Embed Reporter: ISIS Plans On Killing ‘Hundreds of Millions’ in ‘Religious Cleansing’

Jurgen Todenhofer, the first Western reporter to embed with Islamic State fighters and not be killed in the process, spoke to Al Jazeera about his time with the terror group.

Todenhofer lived side by side with the jihadist fighters for ten days in the Islamic State-stronghold city of Mosul, Iraq. He was accompanied only by his son, who served as his cameraman.

“I always asked them about the value of mercy in Islam,” but “I didn’t see any mercy in their behavior,” explained Todenhofer. He added, “Something that I don’t understand at all is the enthusiasm in their plan of religious cleansing, planning to kill the non-believers… They also will kill Muslim democrats because they believe that non-ISIL-Muslims put the laws of human beings above the commandments of God.”

The German reporter then elaborated on how shocked he was about how “willing to kill” the ISIS fighters are. He said that they were ready to commit genocide. “They were talking about [killing] hundreds of millions. They were enthusiastic about it, and I just cannot understand that,” said Todenhofer

He warned that the Islamic State “is much stronger than we think,” and that their recruiting has brought motivated jihadis from across the globe. “Each day, hundreds of new enthusiastic fighters are arriving,” explained Todenhofer. “There is an incredible enthusiasm that I have never seen in any other war zones I have been to.”

The journalist asserted that the U.S.-led bombing campaign was not going to stop the Islamic State and its continuing jihad. He told Al Jazeera that he believed the terror group would only be stopped if fellow Sunni Iraqis would rise up against them.

Supreme Court Unanimously Rules For Bearded Muslim Inmate Gregory Holt

A unanimous Supreme Court ruling has invalidated an Arkansas state prison rule that barred inmates from growing beards measuring more than a quarter of an inch long. The rule had been challenged by inmate Gregory Holt, a Muslim man who had asked for permission to grow a half-inch-long beard as a compromise from the full beard he believes is required by his faith. In a ruling announced Tuesday, the Supreme Court said the policy violated Holt's religious beliefs.

Arkansas was virtually alone in having such a restrictive rule on beards. Holt — who is also known as Abdul Maalik Muhammad — had argued in a handwritten plea to the court that the state's refusal to grant exceptions was oppressive and forced inmates "to either obey their religious beliefs and face disciplinary action on the one hand, or violate those beliefs in order to acquiesce" to the grooming policy. The Supreme Court had earlier granted Holt's request to maintain a half-inch long beard while his case worked its way through the appeals process. Holt, who did time for making a threat against President Bush's daughters before being convicted in 2010 of knifing his girlfriend, was sentenced to life in prison in 2010.

The opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito, said the state has a legitimate need to prevent the concealment of contraband, which was its stated reason for the policy. But, Alito said, "the argument that this interest would be seriously compromised by allowing an inmate to grow a 1⁄2-inch beard is hard to take seriously."

"An item of contraband would have to be very small indeed to be concealed by a 1⁄2-inch beard, and a prisoner seeking to hide an item in such a short beard would have to find a way to prevent the item from falling out. Since the Department does not demand that inmates have shaved heads or short crew cuts, it is hard to see why an inmate would seek to hide contraband in a 1⁄2-inch beard rather than in the longer hair on his head," Alito said.

UCLA Broadcasting Muslim Call To Prayer Declaring ‘Allah is Great’ On Campus

Less than a week after controversy erupted over an announcement that a Muslim call to prayer would be broadcast at North Carolina’s Duke University, it has come to light that students at UCLA in California have been doing so for some time.

On Friday, a video was published on YouTube of students broadcasting the call to prayer on the north side of the UCLA campus near the athletic field off Sunset Boulevard. While the audio is faint, Arabic-style chanting can be heard in the footage as students gathered on the lawn.

The university does have an Islamic Student Association on Campus, which meets for jummah prayers in the Pyramid Room on the second floor of the John Wooden Center. It also publishes a Muslim news publication known as Al-Talib.

“I bear witness that there is none worthy of being worshiped except Allah,” the common Muslim chant, known as the adhan, declares. “I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. … Allah is most great.”

Reports state that the adhan has been broadcast at UCLA for some time—to the consternation of some who were already perplexed by the Duke matter.

“The call to prayer is something that is blasted over loudspeakers in Muslim majority countries and Muslim enclaves around Detroit,” wrote Carol Brown of American Thinker. “We’ve already heard enough ‘Allahu Akbar’ for a lifetime.”

As previously reported, Duke University had outlined in its student paper earlier on Tuesday that the “moderately amplified” chant would take place beginning Friday from the chapel bell tower.

“Members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant a weekly call-to-prayer from the Duke Chapel bell tower beginning Friday, Jan. 16,” Duke Today reported. “The chant, called the ‘adhan,’ announces the start of the group’s jummah prayer service, which takes place in the chapel basement each Friday at 1 p.m.”

But as the call to prayer made headlines nationwide, some expressed concern over the accommodation in light of the violence that thousands of Muslims are committing worldwide in the name of Allah. Duke University was flooded with calls and emails from those nationwide that opposed the accommodation. On Thursday, the university announced that it had changed its plans.

Instead of having the Muslim call to prayer broadcast from the chapel bell tower, Duke University said that Islamic students would instead gather outside of the chapel to chant their call to prayer before moving inside to continue their meeting. On Friday, approximately 100 Muslim students attended the call to prayer, which was broadcast from the chapel steps via a small speaker.

According to reports, another 300 students gathered in support of the Islamic call to prayer, including students who professed to be Christians.

Duke University, which was founded by Methodists and Quakers in the 1800’s and carries the motto “Knowledge and Faith,” notes that it hired its first full-time Muslim chaplain in 2009 and also launched its Center for Muslim Life that same year. It says that there are more than 700 students at the Bible Belt university that identify as Muslim.

ISIS Beheads 21 Christians, Promises To ‘Conquer Rome, By Allah’s Permission’

by Jordan Schachtel15 Feb 2015Washington, D.C.2091

The Islamic State terror group released a video on Sunday showing the Islamic jihadis beheading 21 Egyptian Christians who were previously kidnapped in Libya.

The Egyptian Copts, who were dressed in prisoner-like orange jump suits, were lined up along a beach and abruptly beheaded in the graphic five-minute video.

The Islamic State’s Al Hayat Media, the group that has published the previous beheading videos in the Middle East, produced the Libya video titled, “A Message Signed With Blood To The Nation Of The Cross.”

“All praise is due to Allah the strong and mighty,” said an ISIS jihadist dressed in military fatigues in American-accented English. “And may blessings and peace be upon the ones sent by the sword as a mercy to all the worlds,” he added.

The masked ISIS member continues:

    Oh people, recently you have seen us on the hills of Al-Sham and Dabiq’s plain, chopping off the heads that have been carrying the cross for a long time, and today, we are on the south of Rome, on the land of Islam, Libya, sending another message.

    All crusaders: safety for you will be only wishes especially if you are fighting us all together. Therefore we will fight you all together. The sea you have hidden Sheikh Osama bin Laden’s body in, we swear to Allah we will mix it with your blood.

After the ISIS leader finishes speaking, his fellow terrorists then commence the beheading of the 21 Egyptian Christians. “And we will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission, the promise of our Prophet, peace be upon him,” The militant leader says after his comrades slaughter the Christian hostages.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi immediately brought in his national defense council after being notified about the brutal murder of the twenty-one Egyptians. “It is with deep sorrow that President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi mourns the Egyptian victims of an abhorrent act of terrorism in Libya and offers his deepest condolences to the Egyptian people for their grave loss,” said a statement from the Egyptian president’s office.

Libya has largely fallen into a state of civil war and complete lawlessness following the U.S.-led effort that ultimately deposed its late autocrat Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Islamist militias, some of which have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, have been fighting fierce battles against the forces of secular, anti-Islamist Libyan General Khalifa Haftar.

Ex-DHS, NSA Official: ISIS Terror Cells in US 'Probable'

It's safe to assume that there are people with terrorist ambitions and instructions from the Islamic State operating inside the United States today, says a former Department of Homeland Security official, agreeing with a similar claim made by the agency's current chief.

While hesitating to use the phrase "sleeper cells" to describe these attackers in waiting, former DHS assistant secretary Stewart A. Baker told "MidPoint" host Ed Berliner on Newsmax TV Thursday that it is "more probable than not" that they are here, "and we certainly should be acting as though that's likely."

"It is quite possible that there were foreign fighters from the United States or from other countries whose names we never got and whose travel to Syria we never flagged," said Baker, "and that those folks have come back to the United States with instructions to try to carry out an attack if that's possible."

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said as much on Sunday, telling CNN's "State of the Union" that a number of individuals living in the U.S. are in touch with the Islamic State (ISIS) and other terror groups that share "a desire to conduct an attack" against America.

Johnson said the problem of homegrown or reimported terrorists is worse in Europe than in the U.S., but that on both continents, social media make it easier for an ISIS or an al-Qaida to recruit fighters from afar or groom lone-wolf terrorists within the targeted countries.

It's against that backdrop that President Barack Obama is grudgingly seeking a new congressional authorization for military force against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, said Baker.

"It's obvious he would very much like not to be fighting this war," said Baker, a lawyer and former general counsel to the National Security Agency.

Obama "came into office thinking he would put an end to the use of force abroad and to unilateral executive decision-making about what force could be used," said Baker, "and he's found himself actually being more Bush than Bush on that topic, taking existing authorities and stretching them far. "

His written request to Congress for a war authorization lasting three years is an attempt to "thread a needle," said Baker, "to say, 'Give me a lot of authority but not as much authority as you've given the president in the past,' because he is genuinely ambivalent about whether this is a good idea.

"He's written it in a way that authorizes ground troops, just not for very long or in any large numbers," said Baker.

"He is visibly uncomfortable doing what he feels he must do, both politically and militarily, and any limits he can come up with, he's glad to embrace, especially if those limitations will mostly be felt by his successor," said Baker.

Baker also discussed the new cease-fire in Ukraine agreed to by Russia, which has been hit with international sanctions for backing separatists rebels in Ukraine and annexing Ukrainian territory.

German and French leaders Angela Merkel and François Hollande helped broker the truce, but Baker was doubtful that it will last any longer than Russian President Vladimir Putin wants it to.

"He is playing, especially, Europe, but he's playing us as well," said Baker. "He's managed to increase the [Ukrainian] territory that is largely under the control of his Special Forces and the rebels, and now the West has more or less validated that new territory in exchange for the same promise he gave last time," when Russia signed a ceasefire agreement in September.

"So whether there's a cease-fire depends entirely on whether Putin really wants one," said Baker, "and right now he may simply be saying, 'Well, in order to head off the delivery of arms to the Ukraine, I'll promise them the cease-fire and in a week I can take it back.'"

Obama made the remarks at the White House's summit on counter-terror

The Obama administration has been loathe to refer to ISIS as 'Islamic radicals,' arguing that the terrorist group's religion doesn't matter

"The Islamic State (ISIS) is growing in strength and is wreaking havoc in the Middle East, topping itself with new acts of Medieval barbarism weekly.

But former U.S. Navy SEAL and author of ‘Lone Survivor” Marcus Lutrell, recently appeared on Fox and Friends (via Reid Mene) to discuss how 300 marines — already in the center of the action — could take down all of ISIS.

His advice: to unshackle our troops and let them do what Marines do best – fight.

The Fox  hosts showed the map below, which demonstrates the spread of the terrorist organization throughout the region. Lutrell pointed out that Al-Asad Air Base, which houses 300 Marines, is just five miles from terrorist-controlled al-Baghdadi and at the heart of the conflict in Iraq.

When asked what Lutrell would do after seeing this map, he said:

“Best thing you can do is jerk the chains off those guys and let them go to work.”

Lutrell also said that if you let these Marines do their job, it would take only those 300 Jarheads to take down ISIS:

“With 300 Marines, you  could probably take over Iraq if you wanted to and get rid of ISIS completely. Make no mistake about it, Marines are war fighters. I mean they are really good at what they do.

The only time they are not good at what they do is when someone puts the shackles on them.”


How many times have our soldiers bristled at the absurd “rules of engagement” they must restrain themselves with, particularly against Muslim enemies? When”unshackled,” as Lutrell says, our Marines can take care of business."

Muslims Predict Jesus Will Defeat ISIS, Beginning in 2015

All right, it might not start until 2016, these things can be awfully hard to predict exactly. However, surprising as it may seem, one way or another the end of ISIS is in sight, and it's all resting securely in the hands of Jesus, peace be upon him.

There has been a great deal of mainstream media attention lately, both video and print, regarding the fact that ISIS is recruiting based on the promise that their fighters are actually participating in the rapidly approaching end of the world.

At the same time, mainstream orthodox Muslim websites are already predicting Jesus' return as early as 2022, starting an Islamic prophetic clock set to run over the next 7 years, in the purportedly rapidly approaching run-up to Armageddon.

The good news is that even if they're wrong, those claims ISIS is making about their own role in Islamic end-time prophecy spell their own certain end. Because even though ISIS claims they're fighting on the side of the angels, it's obvious they're not, and it should become progressively clearer to even the most misguided Jihadi that either ISIS is wrong about Armageddon or that they're on the wrong side, because of all the things Muslims know are supposed to happen.

And if it turns out they're right, then we can all rest assured that by the time the dust has finally settled there will be no question left about who's side they are really on, because it's all going to be about Jesus.

Frankly, although I'd like to believe the orthodox predictions are correct, I think they're premature, and that ISIS is crazy-stupid. We had a very informative event up here in Calgary last month hosted by the US State Department, where Dr. Michael Ryan of the Middle East Institute shared his valuable insights into ISIS' recruiting strategy. We learned that ISIS actually complains in their internal communiqués about their difficulty recruiting informed Muslims, because "Islam makes them tend towards life and their community". They find more success attracting Muslims they call "losers" -- ignorant about their Islamic faith and marginalized by drugs, alcoholism, crime, mental illness or recent life-changing events. That's not the sort of Muslim you would expect to know much about the religion, or to make good life -- or end-of-life -- choices either. Given that, I think we can discount their validity of their "good-guy" claims, even despite their despicable and deplorable actions which should in themselves be sufficient.
But even if we considered that they might be right about the impending apocalypse, what sort of events should the next few years bring according to confirmed Islamic eschatology?

    First, the Euphrates River should soon be uncovering a mountain of gold, with the Arabian Peninsula becoming filled with meadows and rivers.
    Then, some Muslims throughout the world will be inexplicably transformed into apes and pigs because of their attempts to make lawful some rather significant major sins. Personally, I think that one's aimed squarely at al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al Shabab and ISIS and their associates, and their rather liberal views regarding murder, tumult, oppression and slavery.
    Then shortly thereafter you can expect the coming of the Mahdi, his uncovering of the Ark of the Covenant and his evangelism of a significant proportion of the world's Jews, who will wake up and realize that they shouldn't be ignoring and allowing Israel's oppressing Muslims and Christians in Palestine.
    Then, you will see the coming of al-Masih ad-Dajjal --the false Messiah or anti-Christ-- the descent of 'Isa ibn Maryam ['alayhis-salam] --that's Jesus-- and his defeat of the anti-Christ followed by the coming of Ya'juj and Ma'juj --Gog and Magog--,followed by:
    The rising of the sun from the west
    The appearance of the Beast of the Earth
    The wind that will take the souls of the believers
    The ruin of al-Madinah --Medina--
    The destruction of the Ka'bah --Mecca-- by the Abyssinians
    And the fire that will come from the Yemen to gather the people in Sham before the coming of Judgement Day.

I think you'll all have to admit, that's a lot to pack into the next seven years and it's going to be hard to miss.
And with that 7 year clock running, if it all doesn't start happening soon, you can expect to see ISIS supporters starting to slip away.

But if it does come true, what sort of a man is the Mahdi supposed to be? Muslim prophecies are actually frighteningly clear, and do seem to predict the current state of affairs in the Levant, hold out hope for the rest of us and promise an end to ISIS.

    At the end of time, a severe tribulation will descend upon my Ummah from their ruler. A worse tribulation will not have been heard of before, until the earth's expanse is constricted upon them, and until the earth is filled with tyranny and oppression, so that the mu'min will find no refuge from the oppression.
    Then, Allah ['azza wa-jall] will send a man from my descendents who will fill the earth with equity and justice as it had been filled with oppression and tyranny. The inhabitants of the heavens and the earth will be pleased with him. The earth will not withhold any of its growth, but will bring it out, neither will the sky withhold a drop, but Allah will pour it out upon them in showers. He will live among them for seven years, or eight, or nine. The living will wish that the dead were brought to life again to witness the great good that Allah brought about for the people of the earth.
    There will be at the end of time a trial that will sort out men as gold is sorted out from metal. So do not revile the people of Sham, but revile their evil ones, for among them are the Abdal [great righteous people]. A flood is about to be released upon the people of Sham that will split their unity, so that even if foxes attack them, they would defeat them.
    At that time, a man from my household will come out with three banners. The one who estimates highly will say that they are fifteen thousand. And the one who estimates lower will say that they are twelve thousand. Their sign will be: "Amit, amit [kill, kill]." They will meet in battle seven banners, and under each of those banners will be a man seeking the kingdom. Allah will kill all of them, and restore to the Muslims their unity and bounty, and their far ones and near ones.

And what about Jesus? Even though Muslims and Christians disagree about what he is, with Christians claiming he's God and Muslims declaring he's not, everybody agrees about what sort of a person he was, is and will be: a man who fulfilled the Jewish Covenant and taught benevolent compassion to his followers, his example remaining a source of hope and inspiration to all humankind for the rest of time.

Can anyone conceive that that person --or Person-- when he --or He-- descends to lead us, could conceivably countenance the despicable and deplorable acts of ISIS?

God Forbid, it could never happen, not even if the world ends tomorrow or lasts for another thousand years.

Bottom line, I have served God and loved Jesus my entire life, and I followed Jesus into Islam when I realized I became a worse man by worshipping Him and a better man by following him. And my greatest hope for today is that Muslims and Christians are all starting to look forward to his return, because regardless of when that happens his example and his words can guide all of us to a better place together, with the help of God.

Because regardless of what the next years bring or which faith we follow, we are all waking up and realizing that we all need Jesus, peace be upon him.

Deep In The Heart Of Texas, Muslim Music Blossoms
MARCH 22, 2015 6:22 AM ET

The eyes of the pop music world are on Austin, Texas this week. Thousands of bands and fans have descended upon the city for the South by Southwest music festival. Austin is also home to its own music scene year-round — and one of its more unusual groups is tapping into a sound that has nothing to do with indie rock or hip-hop. They're called Riyaaz Qawwali.

Sonny, the lead singer and artistic director of Riyaaz Qawwali, goes by just his FIRST NAME. He grew up in Houston, and he used to go to sleep at night listening to the great Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

"We had a cassette player," Sonny says, "and I would listen to his Tape 1. I would somehow weirdly wake up 25 minutes into it, and it would be time to rewind. And I would rewind it again and I would listen to it, daily, twice. And it's not like we listened to qawwali as a family. But it just had a draw."

Qawwali is a tradition that stretches back about 700 years, going from Persia into what is now India and Pakistan. And it's what the members of Riyaaz Qawwali started out playing at their very first show nine years ago at their college, the University of Texas at Austin.

Qawwali is traditionally Muslim. Riyaaz Qawwali, as a group, is not. Not even close.

"We won't go into who is what," says Sonny, "but sitting even around this room and in our group, there are people from Indian, Pakistani, Afghani and Bangladeshi identity. But we're all American today. And religiously, we're Hindus and Muslims and Sikhs, agnostics, atheists."

Religious backgrounds can very often be pinpointed by names in South Asia. And because of this, the members of Riyaaz Qawwali ask to be identified just by their FIRST NAMES, as a way of lessening the impulse to figure out exactly who belongs to which group.

And that's the ethos that informs their music. They weave songs and texts from Hinduism and Sikhism into the Muslim material. Sonny says that there is plenty of precedent within qawwali for mixing ideas from different faiths within one song. He points to one older verse as an example.

"'Mandir, masjid yeh maikhane, koi yeh maane koi wo maane,'" Sonny says. "Mandir, a [Hindu] temple. Masjid, a mosque. Maikhana, which is a bar! So it's an interesting piece of poetry, I think! It's saying, 'Some people believe in this [Hindu] deity of Ram, some people do their bowing of head in the masjid, and some people bow their heads to a maikhana! Some believe in this, some believe in that.' But then, if everyone is just believing in something, we're forgetting Your [God's] identity, because we're interested more in the differences."

Hussein Rashid, a professor of religion at Hofstra University, says that many qawwali artists working in South Asia today have limited themselves. He believes this American group is bringing the music back to its roots.

"You know, I think there's been so much concern about what is Islam, and what isn't, politically speaking and artistically speaking," Rashid says, "that there's been a push in modern qawwali to actually sanitize it and make it very sterile — and almost rule-bound — rather than ecstatic and devotional. For me, I think what Riyaaz Qawwali is doing is trying to go back to that very exciting, innovative space that qawwali was."

And so to Rashid, it's totally logical that such a burst of inspiration would come from deep in the HEART of Texas. "In fact," he says, "it seems natural that we would get a new flourishing of Muslim devotionals in a place like America, where we do have this freedom of religion."

Riyaaz Qawwali is also very interested in making this centuries-old music relevant to today's audiences. They have recorded a bhajan, a Hindu devotional song, to address the much-publicized gang rapes in India.

"We are just about to release something that talks about the Mother Divine, and the female identity," Sonny says. "And we are trying, actually, visually, to juxtapose that with sort of the terrible stuff that's happening with the rapes. And the idea that we are trying to ask our audiences to think about is: How can the Hindu faith really bring a deity to a level of worship, then at the same time kill our female babies, and then **** our women? Is that fair? Or is that right? Should we, as men or women, allow that sort of society to happen?"

At its HEART, qawwali is ecstatic music. It was born in the religious practices of Sufi Islam in South Asia. Sufis seek a mystical, personal connection with God. They often use joyous, ecstatic music as a conduit for that experience. The eight members of Riyaaz Qawwali want to share some of the feeling they experience performing it with their audiences, says the group's violinist, Abed. (Violin is not a traditional instrument for a qawwali party, or ensemble, but it's something that the Texas group has worked into their sound along with the singers, handclaps, harmonium and tabla drum.)

"The interaction between the musicians — like, just musically speaking — is so great," Abed says. "This interaction goes beyond the stage, and goes into the audience, and becomes an interaction between — like a constant interaction — between the audience and the performers."

And they hope that that joy transcends religion.

Mahdi to return by 2016, followed by Jesus?
Mainstream Muslim website makes official announcement

It’s not only evangelical Christians who are sensing that something has changed in the world, and that we may be entering the very last days.

Muslims are also eagerly awaiting their messiah.

In the latest evidence of this messianic fervor, a mainstream Sunni Muslim website has decreed that the Islamic messiah, called the Mahdi, will appear this year or in 2016 and that the Muslim Jesus will return in 2022 to conquer the world for Islam.

DiscoveringIslam.org and the End Times Research Center have calculated that the “first phase” of the end of time will begin soon and lead to the “Day of Judgment” in seven years.

The estimates were derived from “the latest research” into numerical analysis of the Quran, Hadith, Arabic words and historical events,” according to DiscoveringIslam.org.

“The Messenger of Allah [sallallahu 'alayhi wa-sallam] informed the Companions of everything that would occur until the Day of Resurrection,” the website reports.

“Based on our numerical analysis of the Quran and Hadith, the official beginning of the End of Time and the coming of the Imam Mahdi will most likely be in 2015 (or 2016) and Jesus Christ (p) will come down from Heaven to Earth in 2022, in-sha Allah (if Allah is willing),” the website reported.

The Quran and the Bible put forth end-times narratives that are similar but opposite. The Bible’s antichrist, for instance, resembles Islam’s messiah while Muslims view the Jesus of the Bible as their antichrist or “Dajjal.” The Quran teaches that Jesus returns to earth but for a very different purpose – to “break the cross” and convert the world’s Christians to Islam.

Bible teacher Joel Richardson underscores the inverted end-time views of the two faiths in his New York Times-best-selling book, “The Islamic Antichrist,” and his documentary film, “End Times Eyewitness.”

image: http://www.wnd.com/files/2014/10/end_times_eyewitness.jpg
end_times_eyewitnessRichardson is an expert in eschatology, or the order of end-times events, as presented in Christianity, Judaism and Islam. He points to Jesus’ warnings in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 that false teachers and false prophets would arise in the last days to deceive many.

Richardson believes Muhammad is one of those false prophets. But the religion he founded, Islam, must be taken seriously because 1.4 billion people believe in its teachings, which are apocalyptic and getting more so, Richardson said. In fact, it’s impossible to understand what inspires and motivates Islamic radicals such as ISIS or al-Qaida if you aren’t familiar with their eschatology.

But it’s not just the radicals who believe in the Islamic teachings about the apocalypse, he said.

“It is frequently claimed that those who believe these things are but the tiny minority of radicals,” Richardson told WND. “But what the (Discovering Islam) article reveals, is that even many mainstream Muslims now believe that the last days are upon us.”

What is this Shemitah business all about? Sign up for WND’s free e-book primer on the significance of the seven-year biblical cycle that affects the world’s economies, the rise and fall of empires and more.

Many Muslims across the globe see the unfolding events in Syria and Iraq as proof that the prophetic traditions of Islam are coming to pass and will soon lead to the return of the Muslim Jesus and the Mahdi.

As previously reported by WND last October, an influential Turkish Muslim media personality and prolific author, Adnan Aktar, said he expects the Mahdi to appear in Istanbul.

Aktar said the Mahdi will communicate with spirit beings called the djinn, who will help Muslims prevail throughout the world.

ISIS expects a major battle to occur near the Syrian city of Dabiq between the soldiers of Allah and the “Romans,” who are seen as the leaders of the infidel Western powers fighting alongside apostate Muslims. Some analysts have said ISIS could be trying to hasten this battle by goading the U.S. into putting boots on the ground in Syria.

According to the Islamic view the soldiers of Allah will win this battle, ushering in a period marked by the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel and the dominance of Muslims globally.

“Even if none of these things are true, there is power in prophecy, and the sense of divine endorsement that this empowers many with will have horrific consequences in the days ahead,” Richardson said. “When Christians think about Jesus warning of the rise of false prophets in the last days, we often think of false voices within the church. No doubt, we have plenty of such voices, shouting ‘peace and security,’ ‘all is well,’ ‘thrive and prosper,’ etc. But rarely do many Christians think of the false prophetic traditions of Islam that are misleading a large segment of mankind.”

As novelist and filmmaker Joel C. Rosenberg recently noted, the greatest danger to the world is not merely radical Islam, but apocalyptic Islam.

“In Tehran, our own president has just agreed to allow the single most apocalyptic regime in the earth to attain nuclear weapons,” Richardson said. “Never before has the term ‘existential threat’ been so real.”

Another view of the Mahdi and Muslim Jesus featured prominently on Vali-Asr Square in Tehran, Iran.

Truly, the world is entering unchartered territory, he said.

“Now is the time for Christians, whose prophetic traditions are true, to rise up in confidence knowing that the return of Jesus is drawing close, eager to proclaim the Gospel and bring in the final harvest while there is still time,” Richardson said.

Iran’s leaders have been speaking apocalyptically for years. In September 2012, WND reported that former President Mahmoud Amadinejad delivered a speech to the United Nations General Assembly in which he claimed the table was set for a “new world order” based on rule by the coming Mahdi, also called the 12th imam in Shiite Islam.

Joel Richardson tells why he made the film “End Times Eyewitness” in video interview below.

Richardson’s documentary film interprets the events of the Arab Spring in light of biblical prophecy. He traveled throughout Turkey and the Middle East in 2013 to interview Christian, Jewish and Islamic leaders, comparing their views on the last-days apocalypse, including the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

In a late 2014 interview with Christian radio host Reggie Sternes, Richardson said he changed the focus of his ministry after the 9/11 attacks. He says Islam represents a major challenge to Christianity, quite possibly the challenge of the age, and most Christian leaders are unprepared for that challenge.

“I’m really focused on trying to educate the Christian Church. Even in nations where Muslims are a majority, the Christian leaders, the pastors, they often don’t know how to relate to the issue of Islam,” Richardson said. “They don’t know how to train their people to respond to Islam. One thing I am absolutely convinced of is Islam is clearly the single greatest challenge the church is going to face before the return of Jesus but really it’s the greatest challenge the world is going to face in the years ahead so I want to encourage people and train people to be able to rise to meet the challenge.

“And to meet the challenge courageously, intelligently, and to give it the time that it deserves.”

Confirmed ISIS Training Camp Found Near El Paso, Texas

"ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

Law enforcement and intelligence sources report the area around Anapra is dominated by the Vicente Carrillo Fuentes Cartel (“Juárez Cartel”), La Línea (the enforcement arm of the cartel) and the Barrio Azteca (a gang originally formed in the jails of El Paso). Cartel control of the Anapra area make it an extremely dangerous and hostile operating environment for Mexican Army and Federal Police operations.

According to these same sources, “coyotes” engaged in human smuggling – and working for Juárez Cartel – help move ISIS terrorists through the desert and across the border between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico. To the east of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, cartel-backed “coyotes” are also smuggling ISIS terrorists through the porous border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas. These specific areas were targeted for exploitation by ISIS because of their understaffed municipal and county police forces, and the relative safe-havens the areas provide for the unchecked large-scale drug smuggling that was already ongoing.

Mexican intelligence sources report that ISIS intends to exploit the railways and airport facilities in the vicinity of Santa Teresa, NM (a US port-of-entry). The sources also say that ISIS has “spotters” located in the East Potrillo Mountains of New Mexico (largely managed by the Bureau of Land Management) to assist with terrorist border crossing operations. ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities; the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, NM; Ft. Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM."

Common Core Origin and Funding From Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia

Parents across the COUNTRY are asking, “Why is Islam being taught in public schools?”

Taking a closer look into the Common Core curriculum that public EDUCATORS are required to teach, the answer becomes very clear.

Obama’s push for “hope and change” simply TRANSLATES into transforming America. In his plan, common core teaches American children Islam as Common Core’s origin and funding came from Qatar, Libya and Saudi Arabia.

Its origin is funded by the Qatar Foundation International (QFI). The director of QFI’s Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics is Tariq Ramadan, grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder, Hassan al-Banna.

QFI states on their website that the school project was FOUNDED in response to Obama’s 2009 Cairo speech in which the Muslim Brotherhood was seated in the first row.

CP Obama Education 2

According to The Washington Times, Mr. Obama’s mentor, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, received $49.2 million from Vartan Gregorian, a board member of the Qatar Foundation, who also is involved with Mr. Obama’s White House Fellowships Commission. Gregorian is an integral part of CONNECT All Schools, through which Qatar invested $5 million to teach Arabic in American public schools.

Domestically, in America, Common Core was “created by” the National Governor’s Association (NGA), Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), Achieve Inc., ACT and the College Board. The Common Core State Standards are copyrighted by the NGA and CCSSO, a PRIVATE company, which means they cannot be changed.

Many groups helped create these standards (chief among them, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Nations) but Pearson EDUCATION, an NGA donor and CCSSO’s listed BUSINESS and industry partner, is integral to Common Core.

Pearson Education designs “education products and services to institutions, governments and direct to individual learners.” Listed on the London and New York Stock Exchange, of its numerous investors, the Libyan Investment Authority is its largest financial contributor, holding 26 million shares.

The Libyan Investment Authority was FOUNDED by Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Seif al-Islam. The Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR, a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates), Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the Muslim Brotherhood invested in Pearson Education through the Libyan Investment Authority.

The 2009 “Race to the Top” initiative encouraged states to receive federal MONEY to adopt the new standards that would improve test performance scores. Common Core was implemented in the states that accepted the funds.

The Washington Times reported that two years prior to the Obama administration’s Race to the Top initiative, in 2007, the FBI uncovered DOCUMENTS revealing the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood, and its subsidiary organizations like CAIR, planned to indoctrinate American K-12 students by teaching Islam.

Sounding the alarm to wake a sleeping America

"This afternoon, NTEB invited Pamela Geller into our studios for an exclusive interview. Believe us when we tell you that she is an amazingly busy and accomplished person. Pamela is the founder, editor and publisher of Atlas Shrugs.com and President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA).

She is the author of The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America, with Robert Spencer; Freedom or Submission: On the Dangers of Islamic Extremism and American Complacency; and Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance. She is also a regular columnist for World Net Daily, the American Thinker, Breitbart.com and various other publications.

As she visited in our studios, we had some important questions for her that our readers have wondered about over the years, and she graciously took the time to answer them.

NTEB Question #1: In your opinion, what is the greatest threat to worldwide peace and safety, and why do you think that?

Pamela Geller: Islamic jihad is the main issue. Over 25,000 lethal jihad attacks have been carried out worldwide since 911, each with the imprimatur of a Muslim cleric. There is no other group carrying out attacks on such a scale. Meanwhile, jihad leaders openly boast about their coming conquest of the West, and our leaders are in denial or are compromised.

NTEB Question #2: President Obama tells us that we can successfully make a deal with Iran to ensure that they will never get a nuclear weapon. Do you think that’s true, and why do you think that?

Pamela Geller: No. Even as he has negotiated with Iran, the Supreme Leader has screamed, “Death to America!” They’ve also made their genocidal intentions toward Israel abundantly clear. There is no reason to think Iran has abandoned these views and will abide by any agreement, and considerable evidence that it won’t.

Pamela Geller Counters Attacks on AFDI Islamic Jew Hatred Bus Ads:

NTEB Question #3: Your latest bus ad campaign really has people talking, tells us what it’s about and why you are doing it.

Pamela Geller: It is about calling attention to the genocidal statements of Hamas, and to Islamic antisemitism in general. It is scandalous that even one penny of American aid goes to these people who nurse this genocidal blood-lust.

NTEB Question #4: People say that the only Muslims we have to worry about are the ones who have been radicalized. What do you think?

Pamela Geller: How can you tell a Muslim who may be “radicalized” from one who never will be? There is no way. The Quran is what “radicalizes” Muslims, and all devout Muslims read it.

NTEB Question #5: Do you receive death threats, and if so how do you handle that?

Pamela Geller: Yes. I turn some over to the FBI, and when I speak, I have guards. This is the life anyone who speaks the truth about the jihad threat has to live.

NTEB Question #6: Tells us about what your “great passion” is right now, what’s your 5-year plan for the work you do?

Pamela Geller: My great passion is freedom; telling the truth and combating lies and disinformation. In five years I’d like to see our ads blanketing the nation.

Pamela Geller on Hannity discussing Hillary Clinton, Foreign Cash, and Saudi Women’s Rights:

NTEB Question #7: Your book, “Stop The Islamization Of America” woke a lot of people up to the threat of Islam. How close are we to a fully-Islamized America?

Pamela Geller: The main problem is our clueless and compromised authorities. We would have no problem regarding Islamization were it not for them.

NTEB Question #8: How do you feel about the leadership of PM Netanyahu in Israel, are they on the right track? In not, what could they be doing differently?

Pamela Geller: He is a great statesman who sees the threat clearly. He faces stiff opposition from the Israeli left and from Obama.

NTEB Question #9: What type of President would Hillary Clinton make? And if you could place anyone into office, who do you think would make the best president for America?

Pamela Geller: Disastrous. John Bolton would make an excellent president.

Thank you, Pamela, for taking the time to visit with us today. Much appreciated!"

Rush Limbaugh: '12th imam' like 'Antichrist'
Talk radio host echoes analysis of end times bestseller

Rush Limbaugh has shocked listeners by warning the Iranian government’s hoped-for “12th Imam” is “equivalent to the Antichrist,” the prophesied end times figure believed by many to be the personification of evil.

The bold declaration from the talk radio titan is drawing new attention to Joel Richardson, whose bestselling “The Islamic Antichrist: The Shocking Truth About the Real Nature of the Beast” developed the theory that the Islamic “Mahdi” is none other than the Antichrist of Revelation.

Limbaugh made the comments in a discussion about the prospect of Iran using a nuclear weapon against other Muslims. A caller protested an Iranian nuclear attack would likely kill “just as many Arabs as Israelis.”

However, as Limbaugh noted, the Iranian government doesn’t have any solidarity with Saudi Arabia, the Palestinians or Sunni Muslims except as a tool to use against Israel.

In Limbaugh’s words: “This is Shiite versus Sunni. It’s an argument within Islam.”

He believes the Iranian government is being driven by its Shiite Islamic beliefs about the end times and argues the mullahs are not rational actors who can negotiate in good faith.

“People have also said, ‘Don’t they realize if they nuke Israel, that they’ll be nuking themselves because there will be a retaliation?’ Well, if you go read about the 12th Imam, courtesy of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, you find out that all of this is about the apocalypse. And they believe it.

“This is religious truth to them. The 12th Imam can only surface after Israel is done away with, and the 12th Imam is the equivalent to Antichrist and so forth.”

He continued: “Look, don’t anybody argue with me here because I’m not being specifically literal, but there are commonalities here. The 12th Imam signals the end of everything in a good sense, in a good apocalyptic sense, not a treacherous or a bad one. But if they believe that then the whole notion of retaliation doesn’t matter and the whole idea of killing other Arabs doesn’t matter.”

Richardson, who first popularized and explained the concept of the Antichrist as an Islamic figure in his bestselling book “The Islamic Antichrist” and followed with “The Mideast Beast,” welcomed Limbaugh’s comments as both recognition of his own work and a valuable contribution to interpreting contemporary Middle Eastern politics.

“I have listened to Rush Limbaugh for almost 25 years. So it is very nice to know that he is also being impacted by my own work. As the author of “The Islamic Antichrist,” the first book to have popularized Islamic eschatology, I’ve heard many prominent voices discussing the content of my book, and it’s always gratifying.”

Richardson recalled other notable figures who have drawn on “The Islamic Antichrist,” including Mark Steyn, Glenn Beck, Hal Lindsey and Joel C. Rosenberg.

Here’s the conversation with Beck about “The Mideast Beast”:

Iranian Ex-President: US Trying to Arrest the Muslim Messiah
In bizarre rant to supporters, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims 'evil' US gov't working to arrest the 'Hidden Imam'.

Is there no end to the evils of the Great Satan?

Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has claimed the United States is trying to arrest the Shia Muslim messiah, known as the "Hidden Imam," in bizarre speech to his supporters Monday.

In comments made to a group of clerics, which were posted by his supporters on the Dolatebahar.com website, Ahmadinejad claimed the US was putting an intense effort into capturing the Hidden Imam, whose imminent return is expected by followers of the so-called Twelver Shia sect of which the former president is a member.

"They've done so much research about the Hidden Imam in the human science universities of the United States that I am not exaggerating by saying that it is a thousand times more than all the work done in the seminaries of Qom, Najaf, and Mashhad," he told supporters, according to a translation by Radio Free Europe, referring to three Shia holy cities in Iran and Iraq.

According to Twelver Shias the "Hidden Imam" is the "Mahdi" - the Muslim messiah - and the twelfth in a series of Shia religious figures born in the 9th century, who will return to earth along with Jesus to redeem mankind. Other Muslims, including most Shias, believe the Mahdi has not been born yet.

"To quote a friend, they've completed a case against the Hidden Imam, and closed it also for his arrest," he said of the US, accusing the "evil" American government of fearing that the Imam's return would end its "empire."

​"It is really a government established by Satan to prevent reaching God and the Hidden Imam... This evil government knows that its end will come if the Hidden Imam reappears," he railed.

But it appears the Hidden Imam still has something of an edge over US intelligence services, since according to Ahmadinejad "the only [evidence] they lack is his picture" - an crucial piece of evidence no doubt.

Ahmadinejad warned those gathered not to be complacent, though he admitted that many people "laugh about these comments."

New York’s Empire State Building was lit in green late Friday to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. It is astonishing to me to think that just a few years after the greatest terrorist attack to ever hit America was carried out by Muslims on 9/11, that the greatest symbol in the most famous in the world should pay homage to the Prophet Muhammad and the Devil’s religion of Islam. Do you think that such an act shows the forgiving nature of America? No, not at all. It shows how painfully sound asleep we are, and how unwilling we are to face up to what has become the threat of the century: Islamic terror attacks.


Just this week, ISIS released video of a little child beheading a prisoner in the name of Islam. Just two days ago, 5 US Marines were killed in an Islamic terror attack in Tennessee. Muslims immigrating to America is the fastest-growing segment of our population. The black flag of ISIS regularly appears in stories on evening news videos from every major city in America. FBI warnings of ISIS recruitment efforts happen on a weekly basis now, with high schools and social media being a main target. America is being Islamized at a frightening pace, with no abatement in sight.

FBI Director James Comey told the National Association of Attorneys General that ISIS is a “chaotic spider web” that avidly uses social media to radicalize people across the United States. “We have investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states,” said Comey, adding, “This isn’t a New York phenomenon or a Washington phenomenon. This is all 50 states and in ways that are very hard to see.”


As Obama continues to lead the way in our national glorification of Islam, virtually ignoring and explaining away countless acts of Islamic terrorism within our contiguous 48 states, our corporate slumber will only serve to make what comes next all the more heartbreaking and tragic. Obama has repeatedly said that one of his heros is Abraham Lincoln, so we will end this story with a Lincoln quote that in 2015 is eerily prophetic. It’s a quote from a speech by entitled “The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions“, known as the Lyceum Address based on the location of its giving.

 “Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest, with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer. If it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time or die by suicide.” Abraham Lincoln Address Before the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois, January 27, 1838

By allowing America to be betrayed by our elected leaders, by turning a blind eye to the Islamization of our nation, we are in the very act of fulfilling Lincoln’s “prophecy”.

We are indeed the authors of our own destruction.

France will take in 24,000 refugees over next two years: Hollande

Paris (AFP) - President Francois Hollande said Monday France would take in 24,000 refugees over the next two years and proposed to host an international conference on Europe's worst refugee crisis since World War II.

Hollande told reporters the European Commission was preparing to unveil a proposal for mandatory quotas for EU states to relocate 120,000 refugees, "which for France will represent 24,000 people. We will do it."

"The issue of refugees and displaced people is first and foremost an issue that affects southern countries... It affects Africa, the Middle East but also other continents including Asia," the president said at his bi-annual press conference.

"We will propose to host an international conference on refugees in Paris."

European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker will unveil proposals for mandatory quotas on Wednesday.

A European source on Monday said France would take in 24,000 people, adding that Germany would take more than 31,400 refugees to relieve the burden on Greece, Italy and Hungary.

"Since the beginning of the year, 350,000 people have crossed the Mediterranean to reach Europe," Hollande told reporters.

"It's a tragic and serious crisis. It can be brought under control and it will be."

“And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction.” Qu’ran 17:16

My dad’s people arrived as immigrants here in 1723 from Holland, my mom’s dad arrived here on Ellis Island from Scotland in 1923. In both cases, they blended into American life and did their level best to be law-abiding citizens, pay their taxes, and raise their children. While maintaining their pride in their birth countries, they assimilated into their newly-adopted homeland and eventually became Americans. That’s what nearly all immigrants from other lands do when they arrive here, with the exception of a lone, single group who do not assimilate into their host country. And who might that be? The Muslims.

When Muslims arrive in a new land, in America and elsewhere, they are small in number and they keep to themselves. But as their numbers grow, they begin to make demands in their towns and cities that local customs change to accommodate their Islamic beliefs. They will protest and demand that restaurants stop serving bacon, they will run “street patrols” like they do in England harassing and attacking local women not wearing the Muslim hajib. At first, they are merely an annoyance, until their numbers grow, then they become a threatening mob capable of great destruction. The people of Luton in England have had their entire town taken from them by Muslim immigrants.


Why do Muslims do this? Because their Qu’ran tells them to, in whatever host country they find themselves, to “claim that land” for their god Allah. Read for yourself quotes from various Muslim leaders as to why they want to take over their host nations, it will be most enlightening:

“In late 2009, in fulfillment of a religious obligation, I decided to participate in jihad against the United States. The Koran obliges every able Muslim to participate in jihad and fight in the way of Allah, those who fight you, and kill them wherever you find them.”  – Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “Underwear Bomber”, proudly telling a court why he attempted to detonate a plane full of innocents over Detroit.
“We need men who are willing to go all the way and not hold back anything from Allah.  The religion of Allah cannot be given victory by part-time service. This is not a weekend religion. The contract is to sell our souls to Allah. The compensation is paradise.” – American-born Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who has inspired multiple bombing and shooting plots in the U.S. and Europe from his base in Yemen.

When Muslims grow in numbers in any nation outside their own, they demand that their host country become Muslim and adopt the Satanic Sharia Law. England today is a nation on the verge of a complete collapse from Muslim immigration. Think it can’t happen here? It already is.

“We killed them outside their land, praise be to Allah. Today, we kill them in the midst of their own home. O Allah, revive an entire nation by our deaths. O Allah, I sacrifice myself for your sake, accept me as a martyr. O Allah, I sacrifice myself for your sake, accept me as a martyr. O Allah, I sacrifice myself for your sake, accept me as a martyr. To the Garden of Eden, our first house. We shall meet in the eternal Paradise with the prophets, honest people, martyrs and righteous people. They are the best of companions. Praise be to Allah. Allah’s peace, mercy and blessings be upon you. ” – Ahmad al-Haznawi, Flight 93 Hijacker

“We are fighting for no other reason than to extract people from the kufr and to usher them into the fold of Islam.” – ISIS Commander
“Our conflict is not an Israeli-Arab conflict. Our struggle is not for a Palestinian state. We are seeking the world. We are seeking the whole world. We are seeking a confrontation against all Crusaders, against all Christians, against all infidels until they adopt the Islamic religion, until they follow the Sharia of Allah. We are not interested in Palestine. We are not interested in Tel Aviv or in Ashkelon. What is important for us is to see Islam ruling the world. This is the religion of God and we are fighting to see Islam rule the world.” – Abu Al-Ayna al-Ansari, a leader of a Salafi group in the Gaza Strip that is allied with Islamic State ideology

Author Steve Tarani said during a presentation in Nashville that he has witnessed the alleged “no-go zones” — areas where police cannot enter — while shadowing a friend who serves on the Detroit Metro SWAT Police on a drive in Dearborn, MI. He described pulling up to one of the alleged Muslim-controlled areas:

The street signs suddenly went from English to Arabic. There wasn’t a single English word on any shop or any street sign. And in fact, these little yellow signs were posted all along the edges. Jeremy said to me, ‘this is it. We don’t go past this line.’ And I said to Jeremy, ‘what do you mean? You guys are Detroit Metro. You’re the SWAT team. You can go anywhere you want. What if you get a call over there?’ He said ‘this is it, it’s hazardous for our team if we go past this line.’

I have seen it with my own eyes, witnessed it in the backseat of a car and it is for real. No-go zones exist in the United States.

Dearborn, Michigan is not the only place that these settlements exist. They are spread out over the country in various cities. There’s an estimate of over 5,000 known terrorist cells in the United States. However our most persistent and significant threat, right now, to us here today this morning, is the homegrown violent extremists.

In 2013 alone, 117,423 migrants from Muslim-majority countries were permanently resettled within the United States— having been given lawful permanent resident status. Additionally in 2013, the United States voluntarily admitted an extra 122,921 temporary migrants from Muslim countries as foreign students and foreign workers as well as 39,932 refugees and asylees from Muslim countries.


To put these numbers into perspective, this means that every year the U.S. admits a number of Muslim migrants larger in size than the entire population of Des Moines, Iowa; Lincoln, Nebraska; or Dayton, Ohio.

The greatest threat America faces in 2015 is not from “radical” Muslim extremism, but from regular old, everyday, “moderate” Islam. It is happening here right now, in every small town across America. It will be the death of our nation if it is not stopped. England 100 years ago was a Christian nation so peaceful that the police didn’t even need to carry guns.

Not any more.

The seven-year saga of the Keystone XL pipeline culminated Friday in U.S. President Barack Obama rejecting a project that had become the biggest irritant in Canada-U.S. relations, amid its improbable escalation from an isolated land dispute into a major cross-border environmental struggle.


WASHINGTON – The seven-year saga of the Keystone XL pipeline culminated Friday in U.S. President Barack Obama rejecting a project that had become the biggest irritant in Canada-U.S. relations, amid its improbable escalation from an isolated land dispute into a major cross-border environmental struggle.

After years of suspense and a change in government in Canada, Obama called the new prime minister to break the news Friday: the Keystone Pipeline project is being rejected because it’s not in the U.S. national interest.

According to public statements from both leaders, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed disappointment but vowed not to let the development poison relations between the countries.


Did you really think that Muslim-raised Barack Hussein Obama was ever going to approve the Keystone XL pipeline? Why would he? If that pipeline is ever built, it would dramatically reduce America’s need to import Muslim oil from the Middle East. This has nothing to do with the “climate change” scam, saving the spotted owl or anything else. This has everything to do with keeping America tied to our Arab oil masters.

TransCanada first submitted its permit application for the 1,600-mile, $7 billion project to the State Department in 2008. Because the pipeline would cross an international border, the State Department was responsible for determining whether granting a permit for the project would serve the national interest.

The pipeline would have shuttled up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada’s oil sands to U.S. refineries. The southern portion of the pipeline has already been approved and constructed and is pumping oil from Cushing, Oklahoma, south to Port Arthur, Texas.

“I don’t think we are at war with Islam,” Clinton replied. “I don’t think we are at war with all Muslims. I think we are at war with jihadists.”



“Marco Rubio, also running for president, said this attack showed that we are at war with radical Islam. Do you agree with that characterization, radical Islam?” the CBS News moderator asked.

“I don’t think we are at war with Islam,” Clinton replied. “I don’t think we are at war with all Muslims. I think we are at war with jihadists.”


“I think you can talk about Islamists who clearly are also jihadists, but I also think it’s not particularly helpful — to make the case that Senator Sanders was just making that I agree with we have to reach out to Muslim countries, we have to have them part of our coalition — if they hear people running for president who basically short cut it to say to say we are somehow against Islam,” Clinton said. “That was one of the real contributions, despite all the other problems, that George W. Bush made after 9/11.”

The terror attacks in Paris Friday night, which the Islamic State claimed credit for, killed at least 129 and injured scores of others. source

Egyptian cleric: The West, not Islam, created ISIS

Egyptian cleric extends condolences to France but says West shouldn't be surprised by ISIS attacks.


An Egyptian cleric, speaking on local television following the Paris terrorist attacks, expressed condolences over the attacks but also said that the West should not be surprised by them nor connect them to Islam.

The reason, according to Sheikh Khaled Elgendy, is that the Islamic State (ISIS), the jihadist group which claimed the attacks, was created by the West itself.

Elgendy’s comments were made on the Egyptian Al-Hayat TV and were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

"The worst thing about all this is that some people try to link Islam to this terrorist conduct. We pray that Allah give them some reason and perspective, and that they realize the extent of the danger about which reasonable people in our country have warned. The president has also warned of this," said Elgendy in the clip translated by MEMRI.

"The problem is that some people believe that terrorism can be contained through niceties. This is a very harsh lesson. Anyone who keeps a snake is bound to be bitten by it," he continued before adding, "ISIS was created by the West. By no means was it created by Islam."

Elgendy went on to claim that the "complex professionalism" with which the terrorists carried out the attack proves they were well-trained and, as such, "This proves that the [West] trained these people in dangerous training camps, but then, they turned against it."

The remarks are not the first time that Muslim clerics have claimed that ISIS is a Western creation or that the West caused the group to arise.

The grand imam of Al-Azhar in Cairo claimed several months ago that the West has an interest in the "fragmentation" of the Islamic world and is partly to blame for the rise of ISIS.

Similarly, Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, claimed last year that the United States, Israel and the "wicked" British government were behind ISIS and had created the group "in order to create divisions and use them to fight against the Islamic Republic".

Putin: ISIS financed from 40 countries, including G20 members
Published time: 16 Nov, 2015 14:29
Edited time: 16 Nov, 2015 20:58

President Vladimir Putin says he’s shared Russian intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G20 colleagues: the terrorists appear to be financed from 40 countries, including some G20 member states.

During the summit, “I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them,” Putin told the journalists.

Putin also spoke of the urgent need to curb the illegal oil trade by IS.

"I’ve shown our colleagues photos taken from space and from aircraft which clearly demonstrate the scale of the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products," he said.

“The motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters they stretch beyond the horizon," Putin added, comparing the convoy to gas and oil pipeline systems.

It’s not the right time to try and figure out which country is more and which is less effective in the battle with Islamic State, as now a united international effort is needed against the terrorist group, Putin said.

Putin reiterated Russia’s readiness to support armed opposition in Syria in its efforts to fight Islamic State.

"Some armed opposition groups consider it possible to begin active operations against IS with Russia's support. And we are ready to provide such support from the air. If it happens it could become a good basis for the subsequent work on a political settlement,” he said.

“We really need support from the US, European nations, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran,” the president added.

utin pointed out the change in Washington’s stance on cooperation with Moscow in the fight against the terrorists.

"We need to organize work specifically concentrated on the prevention of terrorist attacks and tackling terrorism on a global scale. We offered to cooperate [with the US] in anti-IS efforts. Unfortunately, our American partners refused. They just sent a written note and it says: ‘we reject your offer’,” Putin said.

“But life is always evolving and at a very fast pace, often teaching us lessons. And I think that now the realization that an effective fight [against terror] can only be staged together is coming to everybody,” the Russian leader said.

According to Putin, first of all it should be decided which groups in Syria can be considered terrorist organizations and which can be attributed to an armed, but still legitimate part of the Syrian opposition.

“Our efforts must be concentrated on the battle with terrorist organizations.”

Putin also disagreed with Western criticism of Russia’s actions in Syria, where the country has been carrying out a large-scale air campaign against Islamic State and other terror groups since September 30.

“It’s really difficult to criticize us,” he said, adding that Russia has repeatedly asked its foreign partners to provide data on terrorist targets in Syria.

“They’re afraid to inform us on the territories which we shouldn’t strike, fearing that it is precisely where we’ll strike; that we are going to cheat everybody,” the president said.

“Apparently, their opinion of us is based on their own concept of human decency,” he added.

Putin told the media that Russia has already established contact with the Syrian opposition, which has asked Moscow not carry out airstrikes in the territories it controls.

Still no conclusion on what caused Sinai plane crash
It’s too early to make conclusions about the reasons for the crash of the Russian A321 jet over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula in late October, as all possible reasons are still being considered by the investigators, Putin said.

“We know about all the possible scenarios, all of the scenarios are being considered. The final conclusion can only be made after the implementation and completion of the inspection,” he stressed.

"If there was an explosion, the traces of explosives would have remained on the liner’s cover and on the belongings of the passengers. It’s inevitable. And we have enough equipment and skilled, world class experts, capable of finding those traces. Only then would it be possible to speak about the reasons for this tragedy," the president added.

With 224 people dying in the crash, Putin said that "it's a huge emotional pain for all of us; for all Russian people, no matter what the cause of the crash was."

Syrian refugees: B.C. government checking capacity of regions to settle newcomers
Provincial funding will go toward health care and education costs of settling refugees, says Shirley Bond.


The B.C. government says it is working to ensure settlement services have the capacity to handle 2,500 refugees arriving in the province in the next six weeks.

Thousands of Syrian refugees expected in B.C.
Refugee backlash 'un-Canadian,' says former B.C. premier
Shirley Bond, B.C.'s Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour, spoke with Rick Cluff on CBC Radio One's The Early Edition about the backlash against refugees settling in northern B.C., and explained what the provincial government is doing to support the newcomers.

What are your thoughts on the backlash in some northern communities against refugees settling there?

I'm a very proud Northerner — I live in Prince George. I've certainly heard both sides of the argument.

I've heard people welcoming and reaching out to welcome refugees in many parts of the province, not just northern B.C. People are offering their help and their assistance.

And then there are those who are concerned about the services that are available, looking at the job situation in some parts of the province.

I understand and I certainly acknowledge people's concerns and I want to reassure British Columbians that we are looking at capacity. That is an important part of this.

Syrian family diverted to Connecticut at Indiana's request

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A Syrian family that fled the war-torn country in 2011 was welcomed Wednesday to its new home of Connecticut after Indiana officials objected to plans for the refugees to resettle in their state.

The married couple and their 5-year-old son had been living as refugees in Jordan and been waiting three years to resettle in the United States. They were scheduled to arrive in Indianapolis Thursday but were diverted when Gov. Mike Pence ordered state agencies to halt resettlement activities after the deadly attacks in Paris.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said he personally greeted the family upon their arrival Wednesday in New Haven.

"I have to say they were absolutely wonderful and charming folks," Malloy said at a news conference. "I told them that people in the United States are generous and good people but sometimes things happen elsewhere that cause people to forget about their generosity, forget about their native warmth and spirit."

Indiana is among the more than half of states, most of them with Republican governors, that have objected to the arrival of the Syrian immigrants without assurances of proper security measures in place. The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration sent letters Tuesday to Exodus Refugee Immigration Inc. in Indianapolis and Catholic Charities Indianapolis saying plans to accept two Syrian families should be halted.

Carleen Miller, Exodus Refugee's executive director, said she doesn't believe the state has the power to stop the resettlements but thought she had no choice but to find another place for the refugees to live with their arrival imminent.

"I did not want this family to be put through any more scrutiny or drama," she said. "Would I have wanted to have more time to push back and say that this is not constitutional, that refugees can go to any state that they want because they're admitted to the U.S., not into a state? Yes. But this was a really urgent situation and I needed to make a decision on behalf of the families."

Pence, a Republican, said Tuesday he believes states can stop refugees from relocating and that it was appropriate to do so after reports that a Syrian refugee was part of that attack.

"We're very confident that we have the legal authority to suspend the resettlement program relative to Syrian refugees in the state of Indiana and I think it is the proper course," he said.

The second family, which has children ages 2 and 1, is scheduled to arrive in Indianapolis on Dec. 10 and be placed by Catholic Charities Indianapolis. Heidi Smith, director of refugee services for Catholic Charities Indianapolis, said the organization is waiting for guidance from the State Department and the national organizations that oversees the program, including the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Smith said the family scheduled to arrive in December is just the second her organization has handled. She said a family of five arrived in October.

Malloy, a Democrat, told The Associated Press Wednesday that governors trying to block the entry of Syrian refugees are trying to make "political capital."

Malloy clashed with Pence earlier this year after the Indiana governor signed a religious objections bill into law, calling him a bigot on national television. Malloy said Wednesday he was not surprised by Pence's effort to block the refugees.

"This is the same guy who signed a homophobic bill in the spring, surrounded by homophobes," Malloy said. "I'm not surprised by anything the governor does."

Pence's spokesman Matt Lloyd called Malloy's comments "sad, unfortunate and simply not true."

"President Obama's own FBI director stated last month in congressional testimony that there are gaps in the screening process of Syrian refugees," Lloyd said in an email statement to AP. "Governor Pence believes the safety and security of Hoosiers is his top priority and for that reason, the Governor ordered the resettlement program to be put on hold."

Malloy said he felt the need to tell the couple they were coming to a country where most of the population came from another place. He said told them about how his own family originally came to the U.S. from Ireland about 100 years ago.

"They know that they've been diverted. They know that they were unwelcomed in another state," Malloy said. "We're not in the position to take everybody from Syria, but Connecticut should take its share."

Below is a sampling of more than 20 cases of terrorist plots against the U.S. by Muslim immigrants that have received little to no national media coverage over the last two years. All of the below terrorists and suspected terrorists would have passed through the federal government’s vaunted “vetting” process for refugees, asylum seekers and other types of immigrants:

 :o what else are they keeping from us?

An immigrant from Muslim-dominated Bangladesh, who applied for and received U.S. citizenship,‎ tried to incite people to travel to Somalia and conduct violent jihad against the United States. He was arrested in Texas in 2014.

In July 2015, a Cuban immigrant inspired by Islamic extremists plotted to explode a backpack bomb filled with nails on a beach in Key West.

He attacked an FBI agent with a large kitchen knife when the agent was searching his home in June in Staten Island, New York. The search was connected to an investigation stemming from the weekend arrest of Munther Omar Saleh, a 20-year-old U.S. citizen charged with conspiring to provide material support to ISIS, CNN reported.

An immigrant from Sudan living in northern Virginia, who applied for and received U.S. citizenship, tried to join ISIS and wage jihad on its behalf after having been recruited online. He pleaded guilty in federal court in June 2015 to providing material support to ISIS and his friend, according to court records, is now a member of the Islamic State fighting force in Syria.

A Muslim refugee couple from Bosnia, along with their five relatives living in Missouri, Illinois and New York, were charged in February 2015 with sending money, supplies and smuggled arms to ISIS and other terrorist organizations in Syria and Iraq.

Two female immigrants, one from Saudi Arabia and one from Yemen, one of whom applied for and received U.S. citizenship, allegedly swore allegiance to ISIS and pledged to explode a propane tank bomb on U.S. soil. They were arrested in April 2015 during an FBI undercover raid on their house in Queens, New York.

A Uzbek man in Brooklyn allegedly encouraged other Uzbek nationals to wage jihad on behalf of ISIS, and raised $1,600 for the terror organization. The arrests were announced in February and April 2015.

The Boston Bombers were invited in as asylum seekers. The younger brother applied for citizenship and was naturalized on Sept. 11, 2012. The older brother had a pending application for citizenship.

A Moroccan Muslim who came to the U.S. on a student visa was arrested and charged in April 2014 with plotting to blow up a university and a federal courthouse.

Six members of Minnesota’s Somali-American refugee community have recently been charged with trying to join ISIS. The Washington Times reported that “the effort [to resettle large groups of Somali refugees in Minnesota] is having the unintended consequence of creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is both stressing the state’s safety net and creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.”

An Uzbek refugee living in Boise, Idaho, was arrested in 2013 and charged with providing support to a terrorist organization, in the form of teaching terror recruits how to build bombs to blow up U.S. military installations. He was convicted in August 2015.

Governors in at least 15 states say they will welcome Syrian refugees

More than half the nation’s governors — all but one of them Republican — say they will refuse to accept any refugees from Syria in the wake of last week’s deadly terror attacks in Paris. But at least 15 — nearly all Democrats — are refusing to join them.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee says his state will welcome refugees from the war-torn region and cautioned his fellow governors not to give in to “fear,” “hate” and “divisiveness.”

“I think our nation is tested from time to time, and I think this is one of those times,” Inslee, a Democrat, told NPR. “The country has always been a place of refuge for those who are persecuted.”

Inslee was among the governors who took part in a conference call with White House officials seeking to assure them that President Obama’s previously announced plan to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees, which includes a 12- to 18-month security screening process for refugees, is rigorous.

“I think the screening process we have now [for refugees] is much more robust than the screening process we have for people coming here on tourist visas,” Inslee said. “You know, some of these terrorists were from Belgium. And they could get on a plane on a tourist visa and come to New York or Seattle, for that matter, with much less screening than someone who sought refugee status.”

Inslee dismissed the security risk cited by governors, like Alabama’s Robert Bentley, who oppose Syrian resettlements in their states.

Yahoo News Live: Syrian refugees: How the U.S. screens
On Wednesday, November 18th, Yahoo News Live explores the Syrian refugee crisis, the immigration process for U.S. entry and the stern, blow back from an increasing series of U.S. governors concerned that refugees pose a security threat. Yahoo Global Anchor Katie Couric explores this topic and walks us through the vetting process for people seeking asylum.
“There’s risk getting out of bed in the morning,” Inslee said. “We are a nation that has always taken the path of enforcing our freedom — our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our humanity, our relationship with the rest of the world. And we’ve hewed to those values even in troubled times. And when we haven’t we’ve regretted it.”

Earlier this week, California Gov. Jerry Brown, also a Democrat, said his state would accept Syrian refugees, promising they would be “fully vetted.“

“I intend to work closely with the president so that he can both uphold America’s traditional role as a place of asylum, but also ensure that anyone seeking refuge in America is fully vetted in a sophisticated and utterly reliable way,” Brown told the Desert Sun newspaper. “You can be sure that we will do everything in our power to protect the people of our state.”

Connecticut Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy said the state has ”an obligation to do our part as Americans.“

And Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, a Republican, declared his state would do its part too.

"Utahns are well known for our compassion for those who are fleeing the violence in their homeland,” Herbert said in a statement. “And we will work to do all we can to ease their suffering without compromising public safety.”

The 10,000 Syrians the administration has pledged to accept represent less than 1 percent of the more than 4 million people who have fled the country — and most are women and children.

But the revelation that one of the suspected terrorists behind Friday’s attacks in Paris may have entered Europe as part of a wave of migrants from Syria triggered fear among many Republican governors.

Bentley was among the first to say his state would not comply.

“I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm’s way,” Bentley announced on Sunday night.

By Tuesday, governors of at least 31 states — all but one of them Republican — said they will refuse to accept any refugees from Syria.

>> Also read: Can governors legally reject Syrian refugees?

“Governors don’t have the right to restrict people from coming into their state,“ Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who supports Obama’s refugee plan, said Tuesday. "They just can’t. I’m not a lawyer but everyone I know tells me that’s against the law.”

Lavinia Limon, president and CEO of the U.S Committee for Refugees and Immigration, told the Associated Press that under the Refugee Act of 1980, governors cannot legally block refugees from settling in their communities.

New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, the lone Democratic governor opposed to accepting Syrian refugees, called for the federal government to “halt acceptance of refugees from Syria until intelligence and defense officials can assure that the process for vetting all refugees, including those from Syria, is as strong as possible.”

State-by-state governors on accepting Syrian refugees

(Yahoo News)

Speaking on Capitol Hill Tuesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan called for a “pause” to the administration’s refugee plan.

“Our nation has always been welcoming,” he said. “But we cannot let terrorists take advantage of our compassion. This is a moment where it’s better to be safe than to be sorry.”

Several GOP presidential candidates have also been leading the chorus.

On Monday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz announced plans to introduce legislation banning Muslim Syrian refugees from entering the United States.

“What Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are proposing is that we bring to this country tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees,” Cruz told CNN. “I have to say particularly in light of what happened in Paris, that’s nothing short of lunacy.”

Speaking at the G-20 summit in Turkey on Monday, Obama slammed the idea of a religious test.

“When I hear folks say that maybe we should just admit the Christians but not the Muslims, when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which a person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful,” Obama said. “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion.”

Obama: Call for only Christian refugees "offensive and contrary to American values"
During a press conference in Manila, President Obama chastises the GOP and their ensuing rhetoric over Syrian refugees as a "potent recruitment tool for ISIL"
Speaking Tuesday in the Philippines, Obama’s tone was even sharper.

“I cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric coming out of here in the course of this debate,” he said. “ISIL seeks to exploit the idea that there’s war between Islam and the West, and when you start seeing individuals in positions of responsibility suggesting Christians are more worthy of protection than Muslims are in a war-torn land that feeds the ISIL narrative, it’s counterproductive. And it needs to stop.”

The president also took a swipe at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who said the United States should not admit any refugees from the Syrian civil war — not even “orphans under age 5.”

“When candidates say we should not admit 3-year-old orphans, that’s political posturing,” Obama said. “First they were worried the press was too tough on them in the debates; now they’re worried about 3-year-old orphans. That doesn’t sound very tough to me.”

From B.C. to Nova Scotia, communities gear up for Syrian refugees

Stephanie Levitz, The Canadian Press
Published Thursday, November 19, 2015 5:11PM EST
Last Updated Thursday, November 19, 2015 6:57PM EST

OTTAWA -- Within days, the federal Liberal government is expected to publicly unveil its plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the year.

And a lack of confirmed details hasn't prevented authorities and stakeholders, from the Canadian Forces to ordinary Canadians, from getting ready to welcome a massive influx of people throughout the country.

In a recent conference call, government officials told resettlement agencies that the first refugees will begin arriving in early December. Here's a look at some of the efforts underway to receive them.

Nova Scotia
Some settlement agencies have said the province could receive between 600 to 700 refugees.

The province has opened up its general purpose info line to allow people to register their support for refugees, whether it be offers of accommodation, employment or clothes.

New Brunswick
The province, which has offered to resettle up to 1,500 refugees, released its own plan last week for how it plans to tackle the task.

It includes assigning provincial health care personnel at the refugee reception centre, and making sure it has enough Arabic and Kurdish speaking volunteers on hand to help in all areas.

The provincial government has said the Gagetown military base would be the main processing centre for refugees in the province.

The province originally pledged to take in 3,600 Syrian refugees, but the federal plan could boost that number to closer to 5,700. The Quebec government also committed $29 million to resettlement efforts.

Some Montreal school boards have been asked to make room for up to 2,400 Syrian children between the ages of four to 17.

The military is planning on providing interim lodging for refugees -- largely at bases in Quebec and in Ontario as a priority, but other locations could also be used.

"Some people who are in Valcartier on a temporary basis, such as for training, are being moved to another wing to free up contiguous space for possible refugee accommodation," defence spokeswoman Dominique Tessier said in an email.

The province has pledged to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2016 and spend $10.5 million on those efforts.
To house them, the province is looking at using decommissioned hospitals, while the military is currently looking at which of its bases will need to be adapted to house people in the cold.

"CFB Meaford and Borden are two locations that will require winterization of accommodations and preparation is currently underway," Tessier said.
School boards are also getting ready for an influx of students, including one in the Toronto area that's accepting donations of winter clothing and bedding.

Health officials are also pinpointing specific clinics that can serve as go-to points for refugees, including existing immigrant health care centres and general community health centres.

Premier Greg Selinger has said the province could accept as many as 3,000 Syrians by the end of the year. It has already committed an additional $1.2 million to resettlement services.

Among the projects being funded are mental health support for refugee youth; the potential for many Syrians to arrive with elements of post traumatic stress disorder is something health officials from across the country are preparing for.

The province will establish a refugee settlement centre to co-ordinate the arrival of Syrian refugees into the province, which could number as high as 2,000.

Settlement agencies are looking to house them temporarily in hotels and motels before securing other longer-term accommodation.

On a Facebook page set up by a resident of Moose Jaw, Sask., people are offering to donate baby clothes and other household goods, set up welcome suppers and at least one man has offered his ability to speak Arabic and his background in health care to help new arrivals.

The province's premier says Calgary and Edmonton are expected to take in the bulk of between 2,500 and 3,000 Syrian refugees coming to Alberta, with the remainder spread out over three other cities -- Medicine Hat, Lethbridge and Red Deer.

In Red Deer, Alta., the Catholic Services Society is reaching out to the public to see if anyone is interested in providing a home for refugees, seeking such information as whether the space is wheelchair accessible or child-friendly.

Alberta-based rental agency Boardwalk says it will offer discounts on apartments in several Alberta cities, as well as Saskatoon, Regina, London, Ont., and Montreal to help provide housing.

For its part, the military is warning people who were scheduled to stay at barracks in Edmonton early in the new year that they may find themselves in different accommodation.

British Columbia
The province is expecting to receive around 3,000 refugees and has established a $1-million readiness fund to cover some of those costs.

Meanwhile, the Immigration Services Society has asked the federal government for increased funding and staff to deal with the expected expanded workload.

The federal plan is expected to include additional money for settlement services; during the campaign, the Liberals promised an additional $100 million for this program this year alone.

The B.C. Muslim Association is among the groups actively fundraising to support resettlement efforts; they're planning a major dinner in the first week of December with the goal of raising enough money to sponsor several families.

Terrorist Alert: U.S. State Dept Warns Americans Abroad to Steer Clear of Vatican

But Obama said they were contained? So did Hillary

The United States Embassy in Italy has issued a security alert to all Americans abroad, warning them to avoid locations that have been identified as potential targets for terrorist attacks.

At the top of the short list is “St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City (Rome).”

The November 18 notice is billed as a “Security Message for U.S. Citizens” regarding a potential for terrorist attacks, and arrived punctually into the email boxes of all Americans registered with the embassy, including that of Breitbart News.

Along with the Vatican, the State Department singles out the Duomo (cathedral) and La Scala opera house in Milan. It goes on to note that general venues “such as churches, synagogues, restaurants, theatres, and hotels” in both Rome and Milan are possible targets as well.

The embassy notice says: “Terrorist groups may possibly utilize similar methods used in the recent Paris attacks,” meaning bombs and assault rifles.

The alert also mentions that Italian authorities are aware of these threats, signaling that there will be additional security in these places, a phenomenon that is already evident.

Immediately following last Friday’s jihadist attacks in Paris, the Italian government issued a level-two terrorist alert for the whole country, considerably increasing security measures around the Vatican City State.

The level-two alert comprises the deployment of forces from the army’s special units. Army units have been dispatched to conduct regular patrols on the streets surrounding the Vatican, and can be seen in clusters around the city-state carrying high-powered weapons.

Patrols will reportedly intensify in the coming weeks leading up to the beginning of the Vatican’s Jubilee Year of Mercy on December 8.

“The danger is real and objective,” said Franco Roberti, the head of Italy’s anti-mafia and counterterrorism task force earlier this week, “but it is not concrete or delimited.”

“We must protect ourselves from this danger by adopting all the preventive measures necessary. We do not need special laws, but we must be prepared to give up some of our personal freedoms, in particular in the area of communication,” he said.

The embassy alert advised U.S. citizens “to remain vigilant and aware of their surroundings.”

It also encourages them “to monitor media and local information sources and factor updated information into personal travel plans and activities.”

I'm posting this here b/c this is more backdoor propaganda - they say one thing to give everyone a false assurance, but secretly they are pushing their more sinister agendas (ie, smuggling ISIS terrorists in).

Study finds more Mexicans leaving the US than coming

SAN DIEGO (AP) — More Mexicans are leaving than moving into the United States, reversing the flow of a half-century of mass migration, according to a study published Thursday.

The Pew Research Center found that slightly more than 1 million Mexicans and their families, including American-born children, left the U.S. for Mexico from 2009 to 2014. During the same five years, 870,000 Mexicans came to the U.S., resulting in a net flow to Mexico of 140,000.

The desire to reunite families is the main reason more Mexicans are moving south than north, Pew found. The sluggish U.S. economic recovery and tougher border enforcement are other key factors.

The era of mass migration from Mexico is "at an end," declared Mark Hugo Lopez, Pew's director of Hispanic research.

The finding follows a Pew study in 2012 that found net migration between the two countries was near zero, so this represents a turning point in one of the largest mass migrations in U.S. history. More than 16 million Mexicans moved to the United States from 1965 to 2015, more than from any other country.

"This is something that we've seen coming," Lopez said. "It's been almost 10 years that migration from Mexico has really slowed down."

The findings counter the narrative of an out-of-control border that has figured prominently in U.S. presidential campaigns, with Republican Donald Trump calling for Mexico pay for a fence to run the entire length of the 1,954-mile frontier. Pew said there were 11.7 million Mexicans living in the U.S. last year, down from a peak of 12.8 million in 2007. That includes 5.6 million living in the U.S. illegally, down from 6.9 million in 2007.

In another first, the Border Patrol arrested more non-Mexicans than Mexicans in the 2014 fiscal year, as more Central Americans came to the U.S., mostly through South Texas, and many of them turned themselves in to authorities.

The authors analyzed U.S. and Mexican census data and a 2014 survey by Mexico's National Institute of Statistics and Geography. The Mexican questionnaire asked about residential history, and found that 61 percent of those who reported living in the U.S. in 2009 but were back in Mexico last year had returned to join or start a family. An additional 14 percent had been deported, and 6 percent said they returned for jobs in Mexico.

Dowell Myers, a public policy professor at the University of Southern California, said it's lack of jobs in the U.S. — not family ties — that is mostly motivating Mexicans to leave. Construction is a huge draw for young immigrants, but has yet to approach the levels of last decade's housing boom, he said.

"It's not like all of a sudden they decided they missed their mothers," Myers said. "The fact is, our recovery from the Great Recession has been miserable. It's been miserable for everyone."

Also, Mexico's population is aging, meaning there's less competition for young people looking for work. That's a big change from the 1990s, when many people entering the workforce felt they had no choice but to migrate north of the border, Myers said.

While the U.S. economic recovery is sluggish, Mexico has been free in recent years from the economic tailspins that drove earlier generations north in the 1980s and 1990s. While many parts of Mexico suffer grinding poverty and violence, others have become thriving manufacturing centers under the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Automakers including Volkswagen AG, Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp. have built plants across central and northern Mexico that employ thousands, spawning auto-parts plants and other ripple effects. Highways and rail lines that connect to the world's largest economy north of the border have attracted more investors.

"The main reason for my return is family," José Arellano Correa, a 41-year-old Mexico City taxi driver who came back from the U.S. in 2005. "I could help them while I was there, but family comes before money."

Farmworkers recruited from Mexico to harvest U.S. crops had followed the seasons back and forth across the border until 1965, when the U.S. imposed numerical limits on Latin American immigrants for the first time, launching new waves of illegal immigration that flowed north for decades thereafter.

A federal law passed in 1986, four years after Mexico's economy convulsed, led to a more fortified border and legal status for millions of migrants.

Policies toughened even more after 9/11, with the Border Patrol doubling in size and the U.S. erecting hundreds of miles of fences, and Arizona led a backlash in state capitols as Mexicans moved beyond traditional destinations like Los Angeles and Chicago, settling in towns throughout the South and Midwest.

Many Mexicans in the U.S. have become frustrated and fearful as efforts to overhaul immigration laws stalled in Congress and President Barack Obama deported roughly 2 million people during the first five years of his administration. Obama's 2014 order shielding many others from deportation remains blocked in court.

Mexicans who remain in the U.S. also seem more detached from their homeland than before. Pew said their median age was 39 years in 2013, compared to 29 in 1990. More than three in four had been in the U.S. for more than a decade, compared to only half in 1990. And only 35 percent of adults in Mexico say they have friends or relatives they regularly communicate with or visit in the U.S., down 7 percentage points from 2007, Pew found.

Guadalupe Romo, 49, has lived in Fresno, California, for 26 years and has no plans to leave.

"We have our life here," she said at Fresno's Mexican consulate. "There's no point in going back to Mexico."

The Refugee Processing Center admission figures since the attacks in Paris continue a trend evident since the start of the current fiscal year, on October 1. President Obama plans to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. during fiscal year 2016.




No Christian, Druze, Shi’ite, Alawite, or member of any other religious minority in Syria has been admitted over that period, according to data from the State Department Refugee Processing Center. The majority of the 132 Syrian refugees permitted to resettle in the U.S. since November 13 (72) are male, the minority female (60). Of the 132 total, 39 (29.5 percent) have been men between the ages of 14 and 50. Another 53 (40 percent) are children aged under 14, of whom 30 are males and 23 females.

The Paris terror attacks, which killed 130 people and were claimed by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL), brought fresh scrutiny onto the issue of refugees from the Syrian conflict, amid concerns the terrorist group was seeking to infiltrate Western countries through refugee settlement programs.

The Refugee Processing Center admission figures since the attacks in Paris continue a trend evident since the start of the current fiscal year, on October 1. President Obama plans to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. during fiscal year 2016.

Since FY 2016 began two months ago, 423 Syrian refugees have been admitted into the U.S., of whom 418 (98.8 percent) were Sunni Muslims. The remaining five (1.2 percent) were Christians – three Catholic, one Orthodox and one simply described as “Christian.”

One hundred and eleven of them (26 percent) are men aged between 14 and 50.

The age and gender breakdown of the 423 refugees admitted in FY 2016 is:

UNDER 14:        108 MALE         88 FEMALE

14-50:             111 MALE         95 FEMALE

OVER 50:          11 MALE           10 FEMALE

TOTAL:              230 MALE         193 FEMALE

A similar trend can be seen over the entire period of the Syrian civil war, which began in mid-March 2011.

Over that time, a total of 2,296 Syrian refugees have been admitted into the U.S. as of Monday. Of those, 2,137 (93 percent) were Sunni Muslims, an additional 60 were described simply as “Moslem,” and 13 were Shia.

Only 53 (2.3 percent) were Christian (including five Orthodox and four Catholics). The remaining religious breakdown was eight Jehovah’s Witness, six Zoroastrians, three atheists, two Baha’i, one Yazidi, seven “no religion” and six “other religion.”

Of the total 2,296 Syrian refugees admitted since March 2011, 633 (27.5 percent) are men aged between 14 and 50. Therefore, more than one-quarter of the Syrian refugees allowed entry into the U.S. since the conflict began are men aged 14-50, and the vast majority of them are Sunni Muslim.

Christians disproportionately represented among refugees admitted

Syrian Christians – like other non-Sunni minorities – have been singled out for persecution by ISIS and other jihadist groups fighting there.

Yet the Christian cohort among the Syrian refugees accepted into the U.S. since the war began (2.3 percent) is considerably smaller than the proportion of Christians in the Syrian population – 10 percent, according to the CIA World Factbook.

At the same time, the proportion of Sunni Muslims among the accepted refugees (93 percent since the war began) is significantly higher than the proportion of Sunni Muslims in the Syrian population – 74 percent.

One possible reason for this is that most refugees considered for resettlement in the U.S. are first referred by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) – but according to Christian relief groups Christians flying the conflict are often afraid to register with the U.N. and generally avoid U.N. refugee camps because they are targeted there too.

(Incidentally, although civil war deaths and displacement have had an enormous impact on the population, according to the CIA World Factbook the proportion of Sunni Muslims remains steady: The total estimated population figure has dropped from 22.5 million in mid-2010 to 17.06 million in mid-2014, but the Sunni proportion of 74 percent has not changed over that period.)

CNSNews.com has submitted questions to the State Department and its Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration about the relatively small proportion of Christians among the Syrian refugees admitted to the U.S.

‘Infiltration of terrorists’

After the terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, French prosecutors said that at least two of the attackers traveled through Greece posing as refugees fleeing from the Syrian conflict. A Syrian passport found near the body of one of the suicide bombers involved in the attack had been used by a person who arrived in Greece from Turkey in October, claiming to be a refugee.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told Czech Television in an interview due to air on Tuesday that most of the refugees from his country trying to get into Europe were “good Syrians” and “patriots.”

“But of course you have infiltration of terrorists among them, that is true,” he added, according to excerpts released by the network.

A State Department factsheet issued last Wednesday stated that Syrian refugees admitted to the U.S. since the beginning of FY2011 were allowed to do so “only after the most extensive level of security screening of any category of traveler to the United States. None have been arrested or removed on terrorism charges.”

It said that refugees of all nationalities considered for admission to the U.S. “undergo a rigorous security screening involving multiple federal intelligence, security and law enforcement agencies.”

“Mindful of the particular conditions of the Syria crisis, Syrian refugees go through an enhanced level of review,” the State Department said. source

Exclusive: Most Americans see Muslims like any other group after California shooting - poll

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Just days after two Muslims were accused of gunning down 14 people in California, a Reuters/Ipsos poll shows 51 percent of Americans view Muslims living in the United States the same as any other community, while 14.6 percent are generally fearful.

In the first poll on views of Muslim Americans taken in the aftermath of the Paris and San Bernardino attacks, much of the division is partisan. Among Democrats, 60 percent said they view Muslims like any other community, compared with 30 percent of Republicans.

How Americans should treat Muslims, both those already living in the United States and those seeking to come to the country as refugees, became a divisive topic after Islamic State claimed credit for killing 130 people in Paris and a Muslim couple is believed to have slaughtered 14 people and wounded 21 others in California.

Amaney Jamal, a politics professor at Princeton, said it's "healthy" to see the majority positively viewing Muslims, but cautioned about growing fears.

“If terrorism is designed to create a larger gap between Muslims and Westerners, unfortunately they’re succeeding,” Jamal said. “The threat of terror is going to be fought by Muslims and non-Muslims together. You would like to see those gaps close so people are working together and not being fearful.”

Of the 1,056 likely voters across the nation polled online on Thursday and Friday, 34.7 percent said they are fearful of “a few groups and individuals” in the Muslim community.

The poll has a credibility interval of 3.4 percentage points for all Americans and about 5.5 percentage points when looking at just Republican or Democratic responses.

Republicans were more likely than Democrats to support closely monitoring mosques (64 percent compared with 43 percent) or closing ones with suspected extremist ties (69 percent to 48 percent).

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump drew criticism when he said he would be willing to close mosques where extremists practiced and that a database of all Muslims should be created.

“There still is very much a political divide in each of these responses,” said Lori Peek, a sociology professor at Colorado State and author of the 2011 book “Behind the Backlash: Muslim Americans After 9/11.” “Democrats and the independents are looking more similar, and they generally are more tolerant.”

Many voters said they agree that Muslims are less willing to assimilate than other immigrant groups.

Peek said numerous studies have found that Muslims are more successful at integrating into American society -- obtaining education, voting regularly and living in diverse neighbors -- than any other immigrant group.

Many Americans said they believe Muslims are more likely to put their own religion above the law -- a point that echoes critics' insistence that Islamic sharia law is being forced upon non-believers. Forty-nine percent said Muslims put religion above the law, compared with 33 percent who thought the same of Christians and 23 percents of Jews.

Those polled also expressed disagreement that American Muslims are doing enough to report possible extremists, with 23 percent saying they believe that potential risks are being reported.

Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Center for Islamic-American Relations, said while he is pleased that the majority of Americans view his religion positively, he is concerned by the continued minority that holds anti-Islamic views.

“We are seeing I think a more toxic anti-Muslim environment or atmosphere than we have seen since 9/11,” Hooper said. “In some ways it’s worse because it’s been mainstreamed by public figures like Donald Trump or Ben Carson so it’s seen as a natural, normal kind of thing.”

World's refugees and displaced exceed record 60 million: U.N.

GENEVA (Reuters) - The number of people forcibly displaced worldwide is likely to have "far surpassed" a record 60 million this year, mainly driven by the Syrian war and other protracted conflicts, the United Nations said on Friday.

The estimated figure includes 20.2 million refugees fleeing wars and persecution, the most since 1992, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in a report.

Nearly 2.5 million asylum seekers have requests pending, with Germany, Russia and the United States receiving the highest numbers of the nearly one million new claims lodged in the first half of the year, it said.

"2015 is on track to see worldwide forced displacement exceeding 60 million for the first time - 1 in every 122 humans is today someone who has been forced to flee their homes," it said. The total figure at the end of 2014 was 59.5 million.

An estimated 34 million people were internally displaced as of mid-year, about 2 million more than the same time in 2014. Yemen, where civil war erupted in March, reported the highest number of newly uprooted people at 933,500.

"Never has there been a greater need for tolerance, compassion and solidarity with people who have lost everything," Antonio Guterres, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said in a statement.

Developing countries bordering conflict zones still host the lion's share of the refugees, the report said, warning about growing "resentment" and "politicization of refugees".

The report, based on official figures as of mid-year before the influx of refugees and migrants crossing the Mediterranean to reach Europe peaked in October, extrapolates from trends to estimate the global total.

Syria's civil war that began in 2011 has been the main driver of mass displacement, with more than 4.2 million Syrian refugees having fled abroad and 7.6 million uprooted within their shattered homeland as of mid-year, UNHCR said.

Together, nationals of Syria and Ukraine, where a separatist rebellion in the east erupted in April 2014, accounted for half of the 839,000 people who became refugees in the first half of 2015, it said.

Violence in Afghanistan, Somalia and South Sudan sparked large refugee movements, as well as fighting in Burundi, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Iraq.

Voluntary returns - a measure of how many refugees can safely go back home - are at their lowest levels in more than three decades, with only 84,000 people returning by mid-year against 107,000 at the same time a year before, the UNHCR said.

Many refugees will live in exile for years to come, it said. "In effect, if you become a refugee today your chances of going home are lower than at any time in more than 30 years."

On Saturday, October 24, Muslim judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo was a keynote speaker at the CAIR fundraising banquet "Strengthening Our Voices Advancing Together" at Sirico's Caterers in Brooklyn, New York.



Muslim judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo, who was elected last month in Brooklyn’s 7th Municipal District, took her oath of office Thursday using the “holy” book of Islam as a testament to her Muslim faith. This, of course, caused a firestorm of controversy from the moment the social media world became aware of it. But the bigger story went almost completely unnoticed. Carolyn Walker-Diallo is intimately connected to the terror-friendly group known as CAIR.

On Saturday, October 24, Muslim judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo was a keynote speaker at the CAIR fundraising banquet “Strengthening Our Voices Advancing Together” at Sirico’s Caterers in Brooklyn, New York.

For those of you not familiar with CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, here are 10 points you need to consider:

CAIR was created by the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic supremacist organization that pioneered 20th century Islamic terrorism and sanctions violence against civilians.

CAIR only has about 5,000 members, despite a membership fee of just $10.

CAIR represents the opinions of only 12% of Muslim-Americans according to Gallup.

CAIR receives financial support from foreign powers who have also provided direct support to Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda and Hamas.

CAIR has solicited money from sponsors of terror and received financial support from convicted terrorists.

CAIR founders have praised terrorists to Muslim audiences and said that suicide bombers are acting on behalf of Islam.

CAIR has raised funds for terrorists under the guise of helping 9/11 victims.

CAIR board members have called for the overthrow of the United States and the imposition of Islamic law. CAIR has suggested applying Sharia punishment (ie. the death penalty) to users who criticize Islam on the Internet.

At least 15 high-level CAIR staff members have been under federal investigation for ties to Islamic terror.

CAIR has discouraged Muslim-Americans from cooperating with law enforcement and has spent more time and money advocating on behalf of convicted terrorists than for their victims.

Paul Ryan wasted no time in letting America know where he stood on the topic of Islam in America. Ryan also wasted no time in growing a full, thick beard that sent the Washington rumor mills into hyper-overdrive.



“Do the opposite of what the pagans do. Keep the beards and cut the moustaches short.” – the Prophet Mohammed

Washington, DC – On October 29th, 2015, Paul Ryan was elected Speaker of the House after being nominated by house Republicans. Ryan wasted no time in letting America know where he stood on the topic of Islam in America. Ryan also wasted no time in growing a full, thick beard that sent the Washington rumor mills into hyper-overdrive. As his beard came into place, he told reporters on December 8th that he usually doesn’t wade into “what’s going on in the presidential election” — but he wanted to make “an exception” in the case of Donald Trump.

“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,” the real-estate magnate’s campaign said in a press release Monday.


Ryan stressed outside of a closed caucus meeting that he “made very clear at the time” the House passed a pause on the Syrian refugee program “there would not be a religious test.” Turning his attention to Trump’s proposal: “This is not conservatism. What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for,” Ryan said. “And more importantly, it’s not what this country stands for. Not only are there many Muslims serving in our armed forces dying for this country, there are Muslims serving right here in the House working every day to uphold and to defend the Constitution.”


Now to us, this is a very interesting and revealing sequence of seemingly unrelated events that actually are quite related. Ryan has leveraged social media to hammer home the point that he now “has a beard”, posting photos to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter just to name a few. History shows us that only two ethnic groups of people have rules regarding the growing and wearing of beards – Jews and Muslims. Ryan, a staunch Roman Catholic, is not Jewish. So that only leaves Islam. With that in mind, take a look at his new spending bill.


Rep. Paul Ryan’s first major legislative achievement is a total and complete sell-out of the American people masquerading as an appropriations bill. Ryan’s omnibus serves a chilling purpose. By locking in the President’s refugee, immigration, and spending priorities, Ryan’s bill is designed to keep these fights out of Congress by getting them off the table for good. Delivering Obama these wins–and pushing these issues beyond the purview of Congress–will suppress public attention to the issues and, in so doing, will boost the candidacy of the Republican establishment’s preferred presidential contenders, who favor President Obama’s immigration agenda.

The massive appropriations bill will provide more than $1.6 billion to resettle illegal immigrants arriving at the U.S. border through 2018.

Paul Ryan is 100% in line with Obama’s liberal agenda, he is 100% against Donald Trump, and he has just authorized billions to be spent to bring more Muslim migrants into the United States.

And, oh yeah, he suddenly has a full beard. Do a Google search on what Taqiyya is.

Allahu akbar.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he doubted the attack was “militant” in nature, but refuses to rule it out at this stage. He added that Holloway “didn’t appear to be distressed due to her actions” and was “stoic” when she was arrested.


Police are refusing to reveal the motive behind yesterday’s shocking attack when a woman deliberately ploughed her car into dozens of people in Las Vegas.


The culprit responsible for the horrifying incident, which killed one person and injured another 35, has been named as Lakeisha N. Holloway. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he doubted the attack was “militant” in nature, but refuses to rule it out at this stage. He added that Holloway “didn’t appear to be distressed due to her actions” and was “stoic” when she was arrested.

Immediately following her rampage, Holloway drove to a nearby hotel and told a valet to call 911, explaining why she had carried out the attack, although her motive remains a mystery because police are “uncomfortable” about disclosing it, according to Fox News’ Will Carr. source

France Passes New Law – Strips Islamic Terrorists’ Citizenship …Obama Golfs

French officials this week stripped citizenship from Islamic terrorists fighting in Syria-Iraq.
The Examiner reported:

France is trying to crack down on dual-nationals convicted of terrorism through a controversial constitutional amendment that would strip them of citizenship.

On Wednesday Prime Minister Manuel Valls announced details of a proposal that President Francois Hollande had called for last month shortly after the deadly Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. Under the measure, dual nationals who had been sentenced for committing crimes against the nation including terrorism would be stripped of their French citizenship.

“The threat has never been higher,” Valls told reporters. “We must face up to a war, a war against terrorism, against jihadism, against radical Islam.”

The government is submitting the request to parliament, which will debate it in February. Three-fifths of lawmakers of both the lower and upper houses would have to support the measure, which is sharply dividing the ruling Socialist Party whose left-wing members oppose it. It’s also been opposed by French Justice Minister Christine Taubira, who said it wouldn’t “help the fight against terrorism in any way.”

Syrian refugee among first lady's guests for State of Union

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Syrian scientist stricken with cancer and seeking a new start for his family in Michigan will represent Syrian refugees as a guest of first lady Michelle Obama for the president's final State of the Union address.

President Barack Obama has committed to accepting an additional 10,000 Syrian refugees, but some Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates are critical of the expansion. Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, for example, noted the recent arrest of two Iraqi refugees. During an interview with CNN that aired Sunday, Cruz emphasized that they came to the United States "using the same vetting that President Obama wants us to trust with Syrian refugees."

Refaai Hamo, his son and three daughters landed at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in December, anxious to rebuild their lives. Hamo fled to Turkey from Syria after a missile attack killed his wife and one other daughter. He was profiled on the popular photo blog Humans of New York as "The Scientist."

The White House said Sunday that Hamo will be among about two dozen guests invited to sit near the first lady on Tuesday. The guests include several veterans and service members, including one of the three Americans who thwarted an attack aboard a Paris-bound train.

Those on the guest list will highlight issues that Obama has attempted to prioritize during his tenure, such as expanded health insurance coverage, and issues that he hopes to work on during his final year, such as criminal justice. The guest list includes a California man whose partner was killed in the San Bernardino attack, the first female Army Reserve officer to graduate from the Army's elite Ranger School and a plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case that found same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. One seat will be empty, to represent the victims of gun violence.

Obama read about Hamo's story last month. His cancer had gone untreated because he lacked health insurance. More than $450,000 for the family was raised through an online fundraising campaign actor Ed Norton had set up for them. The White House described Hamo as living the kind of life in Syria that is associated with the American dream. He married his college sweetheart, and they built a life together before a missile tore through the complex he helped design and where his family lived.

Obama told Hamo through a Facebook posting that, "Yes, you can still make a difference in the world, and we're proud that you'll pursue your dreams here. Welcome to your new home. You're part of what makes America great."

Also invited were:

— Sue Ellen Allen of Scottsdale Arizona, co-founder of a nonprofit that helps former prisoners re-enter society.

— Gloria Balenski of Schaumburg, Illinois, a woman who lost her job during the recession and whose husband was in danger of losing his job at an auto manufacturer. The couple wrote a letter to the president thanking him for economic priorities he pursued during the recession.

— Jennifer Bragdon of Austin, Texas, a woman attending junior college in hopes of becoming a teacher.

— Edith Childs of Greenwood, South Carolina, a local councilwoman who during a 2007 campaign stop, led the chant "Fired Up." The crowd replied "Ready to go." The call and response became an unofficial slogan for Obama's two presidential campaigns.

— Cynthia "Cindy" Dias of Las Vegas, a formerly homeless veteran.

— Mark Davis of Washington, District of Columbia, who started a small business that trains low-income people to install solar panels.

— Cary Dixon of Huntington, West Virginia, a mom who has called on family members to speak up about drug abuse as a sickness, which reinforces Obama's call to direct more resources into drug prevention programs.

— Lydia Doza of Klamath Falls, Oregon, a Native American pursuing a degree in software engineering at Oregon Tech.

— Lisa Jaster of Houston, a major who became the first female Army Reserve officer to graduate from the Army's elite Ranger School.

— Mark Luttrell, the Republican mayor of Shelby County, Tennessee, who has helped create specialty courts for veterans and those with mental health or drug problems as part of an effort to promote effective rehabilitation.

— Dannel P. Malloy of Hartford, Connecticut, a Democratic governor who has led efforts to increase the minimum wage and tighten gun laws following the massacre of 20 elementary school students in Newtown.

— Braeden Mannering of Bear, Delaware, a 12-year-old who started his own nonprofit that provides healthy food to the homeless and poor.

— Satya Nadella of Bellevue, Washington, the CEO of Microsoft. Under his leadership, the company increased its paid leave benefits to 20 weeks for new mothers and 12 weeks for adoptive parents.

— Jim Obergefell of Cincinnati, Ohio, the plaintiff in the landmark case establishing that same-sex couples have the constitutional right to marry.

— Kathleen O'Toole of Seattle, the chief of the Seattle Police Department, who has focused on community policing and undertook a pilot program in which officers wear body cameras.

— Ryan Reyes of San Bernardino, California, an activist whose partner was among the 14 killed Dec. 2 in the attack by a radicalized couple. He wrote in defense of the Muslim community saying the twisted actions of a few should not be used to view the majority.

— Ronna Rice of Greeley, Colorado, a small-business owner whose company has benefited from trade in Asia.

— Cedrick Rowland of Chicago, who helps people find health care insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

— Naveed Shah of Springfield, Virginia, a veteran originally from Saudi Arabia who fought in Iraq.

— Earl Smith of Austin, Texas, a veteran who gave Obama a military patch he had worn while serving in Vietnam. Smith kept the patch for 40 years, from Vietnam to his pardon after serving three years in prison for a wrongful conviction. Smith gave Obama the patch when he met the then-senator during the 2008 presidential campaign. Obama carried it with him the rest of the campaign.

— Staff Sgt. Spencer Stone of Sacramento, California, who, along with Anthony Sadler and U.S. Army Specialist Alex Skarlatos, stopped a man from opening fire on passengers aboard a crowded Paris-bound train.

— Oscar Vazquez of Fort Worth, Texas, a veteran who came to the U.S. from Mexico as a child and now works as a business analyst and advocate for Latino students.

Outrage As Obama Bringing Over 5,000 Muslim Migrants To Michigan

“The entire country is watching Michigan officials being criticized for not protecting its people from toxic water,” he said. “Could the runaway refuge resettlement program be another case of government officials failing to protect citizens?”


Michigan is expected to take in more than 5,000 Muslim migrants this year, the highest number since 2002, amid renewed concerns about security and the latest effort in Congress to overhaul the U.S. Resettlement Program.

Since 2002, the earliest year for which U.S. officials say they have reliable state-by-state data, Michigan has resettled between about 500 and 4,500 Muslim migrants annually. State social service agencies say they plan to take in about 5,100 this year.

The expected influx comes as intelligence officials warn Islamic State members posing as refugees will likely launch an attack on U.S. soil this year. A bill seeking to cap the number of refugees and strengthen security measures was approved Wednesday by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee.

Advocacy groups insist the fears are overblown, since refugees go through a 13-step vetting process by the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and other law enforcement agencies. Refugees from Iraq and Syria are subject to even more stringent background checks.

Critics point to U.S. intelligence officials’ warnings that refugees cannot be properly vetted.

As the debate rages on, two Syrian refugee families are preparing to resettle in Metro Detroit this week. One family is to move to Bloomfield Hills; the other to Dearborn. In Troy, the city with Metro Detroit’s second-highest percentage of foreign-born residents, the school district is hosting a ‘Welcome Home’ reception for the new immigrants at Morse Elementary School on March 30.

Dick Manasseri of Rochester Hills questioned the decision to bring in more immigrants after U.S. intelligence officials said they expect a terrorist attack this year by extremists posing as refugees.

“The entire country is watching Michigan officials being criticized for not protecting its people from toxic water,” he said. “Could the runaway refuge resettlement program be another case of government officials failing to protect citizens?”

Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, warned Congress last month Islamic State extremists posing as refugees “will probably attempt to … direct attacks on the U.S. homeland in 2016.”

In testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee last week, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said accepting Syrian refugees escaping their country’s civil war could pose a security threat, adding that security has been stepped up.

“Given the prospect of the terrorist-inspired attack in the homeland, we have intensified our work with state and local law enforcement,” he said. “Almost every day, DHS and the FBI share intelligence and information with Joint Terrorism Task Forces, fusion centers, local police chiefs and sheriffs.” source

Arizona Has Become A Middle East Terror Transfer Point Due To Obama’s Refusal To Seal Border

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) said that “We’ve seen a huge spike in money transfers coming from places like Nogales on the border, to Middle Eastern countries” during the Fox Business Network’s coverage of the Arizona primary on Tuesday.


Arizona AG Brnovich: There Has Been ‘Huge Spike’ In Money Transfers on Border to Middle East

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said that “We’ve seen a huge spike in money transfers coming from places like Nogales on the border, to Middle Eastern countries” during the Fox Business Network’s coverage of the Arizona primary on Tuesday.

Brnovich stated: “Arizona is on the frontline, and we have seen consequences of what has happened when we’ve had an unsecured porous border. I mean, frankly, just 6 months ago there were 6 folks apprehended from Middle Eastern countries, from Pakistan and Afghanistan, at our border. I know when you talk to the ranchers down there, they’re concerned because they have found coins from Middle East. We’ve seen a huge spike in money transfers coming from places like Nogales on the border, to Middle Eastern countries. And so, folks are are worried about it, not only from an economic perspective, but from a national security perspective.”

The Obama administration has worked over the past 8 years to make our southern borders as porous as possible, and all sorts of criminals are able to slither through. But over the past few years, there has been a marked uptick in Islamic terrorists coming across.

This is why Donald Trump won Arizona last night in an overwhelming landslide victory. Arizonans want The Wall, and they want it now.

Super Soft On Islamic Terror: Obama Says That ISIS ‘Is Not An Existential Threat To Us’

In the wake of the horrible bombings in Brussels, Barack Obama is insisting that there is no need to change our approach in the fight against ISIS.  He believes that Islamic terror is not a fundamental threat to our way of life, and he wants all of us to be convinced that the way that he is handling ISIS right now is just fine.  Well, in this article you are going to learn some very shocking things about Obama and ISIS that are likely to make you very angry.  It turns out that our allies Saudi Arabia and Turkey have been arming, funding and aiding ISIS and other radical jihadist groups such as the al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in Syria), and Obama has known about it all along.  The goal was to take down the Assad regime in Syria, and the American people were never supposed to find out the truth.

Earlier today, Barack Obama told reporters that ISIS is not “an existential threat to us” during a news conference down in Argentina.  You can see video of him making these remarks right here.  But at the same time, he is promising “to continue to go after” ISIS until they are “finally destroyed”…

    The United States will “continue to go after ISIL aggressively until it’s removed from Syria and from Iraq and finally destroyed,” Obama said, using another name for ISIS.

    “The world has to be united against terrorism,” Obama said, adding that “that’s a top priority of ours.” He added that “we can and we will” defeat terrorism.

So what precisely is Obama actually doing to pursue this “top priority”?

We are told that the U.S. military is bombing ISIS targets, but in all the months that this has been happening, U.S. aircraft never targeted the endless convoys of ISIS oil trucks that were transporting stolen oil into Turkey.  It has been estimated that ISIS sold 800 million dollars worth of oil in Turkey, and Obama knew about it the entire time.

Why didn’t Obama say anything about this or do anything to stop it?

When the Russians came in, they showed satellite evidence of what was happening to the entire world and they immediately began bombing those oil convoys into oblivion.

But why hadn’t the U.S. already done that?

Massive convoys of oil trucks that stretched as far as the eye could see would go back and forth over the Turkish border completely unmolested and Obama did nothing.

In fact, if the Russians had not come in and bombed the living daylights out of those convoys it would still be happening.

This should be the biggest Obama scandal of them all, and yet nobody is talking about it.  Sometimes I think that I must be going crazy because what Obama did was so obviously wrong and yet nobody wants to touch this.  For much more on all of this, please see my previous article entitled “The Biggest Obama Scandal? He Knows That Turkey Is Buying Oil From ISIS And He Is Doing Nothing To Stop It“.

In addition, Obama knows that both Saudi Arabia and Turkey continue to provide advanced weaponry to ISIS and the al-Nusra Front.

He also knows that ISIS fighters use Turkey as a home base, and that when they are injured fighting in Syria they hop back over the border where they are treated at hospitals inside Turkish territory.

But have you heard Obama say anything about these things?

Has he done anything to stop any of this from happening?


The reason why Obama hasn’t done or said anything is because ISIS and the other radical jihadist groups were supposed to win in Syria.  Once they had overthrown Assad, then the U.S., the Saudis and the Turks were going to come in and set up a Sunni puppet government.  Of course Russian intervention has completely changed the game, and so now the Sunni militants are losing.  That is why Saudi Arabia and Turkey are in such a panic about what is going on in Syria right now.

And we are also learning that western intelligence agencies had advance knowledge of the attacks in Brussels.  The following comes from a Haaretz report…

    The Belgian security services, as well as other Western intelligence agencies, had advance and precise intelligence warnings regarding the terrorist attacks in Belgium on Tuesday, Haaretz has learned.

    The security services knew, with a high degree of certainty, that attacks were planned in the very near future for the airport and, apparently, for the subway as well.

    Despite the advance warning, the intelligence and security preparedness in Brussels, where most of the European Union agencies are located, was limited in its scope and insufficient for the severity and immediacy of the alert.

So what are we to make of this?

Was this terror attack allowed to happen?

Could it be possible that someone out there helped make it happen?

Don’t get me wrong – I don’t want to minimize the threat of Islamic terror one bit.  I just wonder sometimes which side our government is actually on.

And ISIS is warning of more attacks in the near future.  In fact, they are telling us that what is coming “will be more devastating and bitter”…


Even if we were somehow able to completely wipe out ISIS, the threat of Islamic terror would be far from over.

All over the planet, radical Islam is on the rise.  These jihadists have a fanatical hatred for Christians and for Jews, and their ultimate goal is world conquest.

And an act of terror does not have to result in mass casualties.

Examples of what I am talking about are all over the place.  Earlier today, I came across a Christian Post article that talked about how two radical Muslims hacked a 68-year-old Christian convert to death with machetes in the nation of Bangladesh…

    Unidentified attackers hacked a Christian convert to death this week in northern Bangladesh in the latest attack in the Muslim-majority country.

    The incident occurred Tuesday morning in the northern city of Kurigram, where 68-year-old Hossain Ali was hacked to death by two assailants wielding machetes.

    Tobarak Ullah, the police chief of Kurigram, told the AFP that the militants were able to carry out the heinous crime by using distractions and a getaway vehicle.

Many in the western world may dismiss a story like this because it was the death of only one man.

But what happens when these radical jihadists start getting their hands on bigger weapons?

Former president Ronald Reagan once made the following statement…

    “I don’t think you can overstate the importance that the rise of Islamic fundamentalism will have to the rest of the world in the century ahead-especially if, as seems possible, its most fanatical elements get their hands on nuclear and chemical weapons and the means to deliver them against their enemies.”

The use of a single chemical, biological or nuclear weapon in a major western city would set off panic on a scale that would be unlike anything we have ever seen before.

Even something as basic as sarin gas could accomplish what I am talking about.  Sarin gas has been used in both Syria and Iraq in the past, and it is exceedingly deadly.  The following comes from the Huffington Post…

    Inhaled or absorbed through the skin, the gas kills by crippling the respiratory center of the central nervous system and paralyzes the muscles around the lungs.

    The combination results in death by suffocation, and sarin can contaminate food or water supplies, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which notes that antidotes exist.

    “Sarin is 26 times more deadly than cyanide gas. Just a pinprick-sized droplet will kill a human,” according to the World Health Organization.

Of course there are other chemical weapons that are many, many times more lethal than sarin gas, and it is inevitable that terrorists will get their hands on biological and nuclear weapons at some point as well.

Yes, terror organizations such as ISIS most definitely do represent “an existential threat” to our way of life.

Unfortunately, we have a man in the White House that does not seem particularly inclined to protect us from this threat.

The Islamic Mahdi

Members of both Sunnis and Shiites believe in an Islamic messiah, the Mahdi, who will appear at the end of the world to establish Allah’s kingdom on earth.

Both Sunnis and Shiites accept hadiths (writings of Muhammad collected after his death) which predict the coming of a Mahdi who will establish a global caliphate in Allah’s name and rule for a period of time (seven, nine, or nineteen years, according to varying interpretations), ridding the world of evil before the day of judgment.

The coming of the Mahdi is believed to coincide with the second coming of Jesus, whom they call Isa, who will join hands with the Mahdi against a false messiah or antichrist.

The Shiites have developed this theology more extensively and emphasize it more forcefully.

As we have seen, “Twelver” Shiites (and Sufis) believe that the 12 Imams who succeeded Muhammad inherited Muhammad’s spiritual perfection and wisdom and are therefore interpreters or and trustees of the light of Islam.

They believe that the 12th Imam, Muhammad ibn Hasan al-Mahdi, was the prophesied Mahdi. He is believed to have died or otherwise disappeared in AD 941 and to be hidden by God until he will reappear at the end of time. The hiding is called the Occultation. (This is “an event that occurs when one object is hidden by another object that passes between it and the observer,” such as a sun eclipse.)

Other groups of Muslims, such as the Druze, the Mustaali, the Zaidi, and the Nizari, believe in a different Mahdi and are not “Twelvers.”

The Sunnis believe that the Mahdi has not yet been born but will be named Muhammad and will be a descendant of Muhammad.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, former president of Iran, has zealous faith in the coming of the Imam Madhi, and Iranian radio has broadcast prophecies of his coming.

“In short, when he reappears, peace, justice and security will overcome oppression and deceit and one global government, the most perfect ever, will be established. ... Another beautiful moment of the Savior’s appearance is the coming down of Prophet Jesus (PBUH) from heaven. Hazrat Mahdi receives him courteously and asks him to lead the prayers. But Jesus says you are more qualified for this than me. We read in the book Tazkarat ol-Olia, ‘the Mahdi will come with Jesus, son of Mary, accompanying him.’ This indicates that these two great men complement each other. Imam Mahdi will be the leader while Prophet Jesus will act as his lieutenant in the struggle against oppression and establishment of justice in the world. Jesus had himself given the tidings of the coming of God’s last messenger and will see Muhammad’s ideals materialize in the time of the Mahdi” (“Police Storm Home,” WorldNetDaily, June 23, 2007).

We see that Islam’s “Jesus” is given a subordinate position in these prophecies.
The following is from the London Telegraph, Jan. 14, 2006:

“As Iran rushes towards confrontation with the world over its nuclear programme, the question uppermost in the mind of western leaders is ‘What is moving its President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to such recklessness?’ ... The most remarkable aspect of Mr. Ahmadinejad’s piety is his devotion to the Hidden Imam, the Messiah-like figure of Shia Islam, and the president’s belief that his government must prepare the country for his return. One of the first acts of Mr. Ahmadinejad’s government was to donate about £10 million to the Jamkaran mosque, a popular pilgrimage site where the pious come to drop messages to the Hidden Imam into a holy well. ... A common rumour--denied by the government but widely believed--is that Mr. Ahmadinejad and his cabinet have signed a ‘contract’ pledging themselves to work for the return of the Mahdi and sent it to Jamkaran.”

From time to time, various individuals have claimed to be the Mahdi and have gotten large, enthusiastic followings. One of these was Siyyid Ali Muhammad Shirazi, who was called the Bab (“gate”) and is one of the central figures of the Baha’i. They consider the Bab to have been the Mahdi, Elijah, and John the Baptist. Others who have claimed to be the Mahdi are Muhammad Jaunpuri, founder of the Mahdavia sect, Muhammad Ahmad, founder of the Mahdist state in Sudan in the late 19th century, and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, founder of the Ahmadiyya sect.

In this way, we probably see what will happen in the time of the Antichrist, in that either he or his prophet or both will be accepted as the fulfillment of prophecy by Muslims, and they will obey him.

Obama Promises To Drastically Increase The Amount Of Muslim Migrants Coming Into US

In fighting their incendiary rhetoric, "our most important partners are American Muslims," Obama stated. "That's why we have to reject any attempt to stigmatize Muslim-Americans, and their enormous contributions to our country and our way of life. Such attempts are contrary to our character, to our values, and to our history as a nation built around the idea of religious freedom," he said, repeating a theme he has sounded as anti-immigrant and anti-refugee rhetoric consumed the GOP presidential campaign trail.


In a brief Easter weekend radio address, President Obama vowed to decimate the self-proclaimed Islamic State, but he said the United States will do so by offering an example of freedom, tolerance and open society.

“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” – Barack Obama, from The Audacity Of Hope

“Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL’s violence; our determination to win the battle against ISIL’s hateful and violent propaganda — a distorted view of Islam that aims to radicalize young Muslims to their cause,” are paramount in the fight, Obama told Americans during his weekly radio address.

Admitting entry to Syrian and Iraqi refugees has become a divisive issue in the U.S. as well as Europe, but Obama made clear he has no plan to back off his promise to admit 100,000 to the U.S. this year.

“We have to wield another weapon alongside our airstrikes, our military, our counterterrorism work, and our diplomacy,” Obama said. “And that’s the power of our example. Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL’s violence. Our determination to win the battle against ISIL’s hateful and violent propaganda – a distorted view of Islam that aims to radicalize young Muslims to their cause.”

In his brief speech, Obama underscored that the United States’ has to engage Muslims as partners in the fight against terrorism. He took apparent shots at proposals by Republican presidential candidates. Donald Trump has called for barring Muslims from entering the United States. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas urged preemptively expanding police presence to “secure” Muslim neighborhoods, though American Muslim communities have been been a source of domestic terrorism.

In fighting their incendiary rhetoric, “our most important partners are American Muslims,” Obama stated. “That’s why we have to reject any attempt to stigmatize Muslim-Americans, and their enormous contributions to our country and our way of life. Such attempts are contrary to our character, to our values, and to our history as a nation built around the idea of religious freedom,” he said, repeating a theme he has sounded as anti-immigrant and anti-refugee rhetoric consumed the GOP presidential campaign trail.

“It’s also counterproductive. It plays right into the hands of terrorists who want to turn us against one another; who need a reason to recruit more people to their hateful cause,” Obama said before reiterating his determination to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State, in light of an attack last week in Belgium. source

U.S. Media Silent As Pipe Bomb Detonates Huge Explosion Not Far From Disneyland

Bomb squad personnel are investigating a pipe bomb that exploded Sunday afternoon in an alley in Anaheim near Disneyland, police said. It detonated with such a force that “one of the end caps blew a clean hole, almost as if a saw had cut it,” through a wooden fence about 40 feet south of the pole, Wyatt said.


Bomb squad personnel are investigating a pipe bomb that exploded Sunday afternoon in an alley in Anaheim near Disneyland, police said.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Last Christmas, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a married couple, opened fire at a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino on Dec. 2. Both attackers were killed in a gun battle with police. Farook, who was born in the U.S. and worked for the county, and Malik, a Pakistan national, had an arsenal of ammunition and pipe bombs in their Redlands home. This past weekend a pipe bomb rocked a neighbor hide just outside of Disneyland. Yet you heard nothing from the American main stream media. Why not?

No injuries were reported but some homes were briefly evacuated during the investigation. Officers were called at about 1:50 p.m. to the 600 block of North Anaheim Boulevard near Wilhelmina Street after a report of an explosion, said Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt.

The bomb, which appeared to be of a metal material, was set on the ground at the base of a light pole against a concrete wall separating commercial buildings to the east and residences to the west, Wyatt said.

It detonated with such a force that “one of the end caps blew a clean hole, almost as if a saw had cut it,” through a wooden fence about 40 feet south of the pole, Wyatt said.

Some minor charring and damage was visible on the concrete wall and pole. People who were evacuated in some homes in the area around Alberta Street were allowed to return to by about 3 p.m., Wyatt said.

Tammy Farrell, 46, said she was inside a home right by the alley when she heard the explosion. “I thought something actually fell from the sky, from like an airplane, because it was so loud,” she said.

Her fiancé Brent Wechsler, 44, whose parents have owned the home for 40 years, said this was the first incident of its kind he is aware of in the neighborhood.

“Some individual that is seriously disturbed is all I can think about,” he said. “All of my neighbors, they are all good people. There’s no purpose for this to take place at all.”

He added, “It doesn’t frighten me. It’s just really, really strange.”

Ana Trujillo, a receptionist at Hernandez Auto Sales east of the explosion, was showing a vehicle to a potential customer when she said she heard a loud “boom.”

“I smelled the smell of burning, chemicals,” she said. “There was a black piece of cloth, a metal piece and a black container and smoke was still coming out of the container.”

On Friday, police responded to a bank robbery on the 900 block of South Brookhurst where a suspect left a hoax pipe bomb, Wyatt said, “but this is completely unrelated. The mechanics are different.”

In December, the bomb squad found a suspicious device on the 300 block of South Claudina Street in Anaheim and detonated it in place. It was also placed at the base of a utility pole, Wyatt said.

“It’s serious – especially on Easter Sunday with people gathering,” he said of the explosion on North Anaheim Boulevard. “It’s very fortunate that there wasn’t someone in the alley that was injured.”

No arrests were made following the incident on Sunday. Anyone with information is asked to contact 855-TIP-OCCS. source

Obama Orders French President’s Comment On ‘Islamist Terrorism’ To Be Censored From Video

According to the official White House transcript of Hollande’s remarks, Hollande refers to “Islamist terrorism.” The audio of the bold text in brackets is missing from the video – the only point in the video were the audio is absent.


The Obama White House website has censored a video of French Pres. Francois Hollande saying that ‘Islamist terrorism’ is at the roots of terrorism.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Nearly 100% of all terrorism violence since 9/11 has been perpetrated by Muslims and Islamist jihadis, with a whopping 28,064 atrocities to their account. Just a few months ago, Islamic terrorists blew up sections of Paris killing 137 and wounding 368 more. So how ironic is it that when the French president was in the White House today, attending a summit on nuclear threats and global terrorism, that Obama ordered him to be censored when he uttered the phrase ‘Islamist terror’. Obama has no intention, none of any kind, of stopping ISIS either abroad or here at home. His actions today once again proved that to be true.

The White House briefly pulled video of a press event on terrorism with Pres. Obama, and when it reappeared on the WhiteHouse.gov website and YouTube, the audio of Hollande’s translator goes silent, beginning with the words “Islamist terrorism,” then begins again at the end of his sentence.

White House Censors French President Francois Hollande Saying ‘ISLAMIST Terrorism’:

Listen from the beginning and right around minute mark 1:25 you will hear a Nixonesque gap in the recording where Obama ordered the phrase ‘Islamist terror’ stricken from the record.

Even the audio of Hollande saying the words “Islamist terrorism” in French have, apparently, been edited from the video.

According to the official White House transcript of Hollande’s remarks, Hollande refers to “Islamist terrorism.” The audio of the bold text in brackets is missing from the video – the only point in the video were the audio is absent:

“We are also making sure that between Europe and the United States there can be a very high level coordination.

“But we’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism, [Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq.  We therefore have to act both in Syria and in Iraq, and this is what we’re doing within the framework of the coalition.]  And we note that Daesh is losing ground thanks to the strikes we’ve been able to launch with the coalition.”

Pres. Obama has come under fire from Republicans for his refusal to say “radical Islam” when discussing terrorism and, again yesterday, he declined to do so.

Obama made three vague mentions of terrorism, citing the “hands of terrorism,” the “scourge of terrorism,” and “counterterrorism” in Thursday’s press event. source

Why Is Obama Allowing Fethullah Gülen To Open Islamic Charter Schools On US Military Bases?

Lest there be any doubt about the objectives in the United States, the strategy of subtly indoctrinating school children into the Gülen movement is a familiar one overseas, and there is great peril in allowing it to flourish in this country. In his native Turkey, Gülen created a network of hundreds of schools that have produced – over the past three decades – a vast cadre of followers now prepared to perform his bidding from official positions in government, law enforcement, the judiciary and the media.


A secretive Islamic movement run by Fethullah Gülen is trying to infiltrate the U.S. military by establishing and operating publicly-funded charter schools targeted toward children of American service personnel.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Today we bring you the story of Fethullah Gülen, the shadowy Islamic billionaire who lives in a remote compound in Pennsylvania. He has created his charter schools all over the world as a cover to spread the message of Islam, and now he has set his sights on opening these schools on military bases in the United States. He has the full approval of the Obama administration to do so.

That charge may sound like a conspiracy theory from the lunatic fringe, but it is real and it is happening right now.  The most immediate threat is in Nevada, where Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas (CASLV) is currently negotiating with the United States Air Force to locate a charter school at Nellis Air Force Base, with classes starting this fall.  What is not widely known is that CASLV is part of a nationwide organization of charter schools and other businesses headed by Islamic cleric Fethullah Gülen, a reclusive but influential Imam living under self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania to avoid criminal prosecution in his native Turkey.

Our law firm has been engaged by the Republic of Turkey – a key NATO ally in a hotbed region – to conduct a wide-ranging investigation into the operations and geopolitical influence of the Gülen organization, which is behind the Coral Academy of Science and over 140 other public charter schools scattered across 26 American states.  Our investigation, still in its early stages, reveals that the Gülen organization uses charter schools and affiliated businesses in the U.S. to misappropriate and launder state and federal education dollars, which the organization then uses for its own benefit to develop political power in this country and globally.

Aside from defrauding American taxpayers, the Gülen organization has an even more ominous objective in the United States.  The organization is one of the country’s largest recipients of H1-B “specialty occupation” visas, which it uses to import Turkish teachers into its charter schools, supposedly because local U.S. talent is not available to fill math and science teaching positions in its charter schools.  The Gülen organization illegally threatens to revoke these visas unless the Turkish teachers agree to kick back part of their salary to the organization.

More importantly, the Turkish teachers in Gülen organization charter schools are evaluated not on the basis of their teaching skills, but rather on whether they achieve monthly goals in a secret point system designed to instil Turkish culture and Gülenist ideology in our American students. The goal, we are told, is to develop a Gülenist following of high achievers, incubated in our local community schools across the country.

The Gülen organization has been able to grow in the U.S. largely because it conceals both its identity and its motives.  The first line of defense for Gülenist charter schools and companies has been to deny any affiliation with Fethullah Gülen (their officers and directors claim that they are merely “inspired by” Gülen’s religious teachings), as if the simple creation of business entities in which Fethullah Gülen himself holds no ownership interest could alter his ultimate control over the organization.  In reality, the governing boards of the Gülen charter schools are populated disproportionately by loyal Turkish men answering to a handful of Imams who rule over defined regions across the U.S., reporting ultimately to Gülen in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania.

In Nevada, CASLV is a three-campus school operating under a charter held by tax-exempt Coral Education Corp., headquartered in Reno.  Three of Coral’s board members are Turkish, one of whom was formerly the Principal at two other Gülen organization charter schools, the Sonoran Science Academy at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona and the Bay Area Technology School in California.

Unfortunately, Nellis Air Force Base is not the Gülen organization’s first stab at a U.S. military base.  The organization successfully opened a school on Davis-Monthan AFB in 2009, and it tried but failed to gain access to Marine Corps Base Hawaii and Naval Station Great Lakes in Illinois.  In California, Magnolia Public Schools applied for a charter in Oceanside, where Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is located, although it temporarily withdrew its application after our law firm pointed out Magnolia’s connection to the Gülen organization earlier this year.

Lest there be any doubt about the objectives in the United States, the strategy of subtly indoctrinating school children into the Gülen movement is a familiar one overseas, and there is great peril in allowing it to flourish in this country.  In his native Turkey, Gülen created a network of hundreds of schools that have produced – over the past three decades – a vast cadre of followers now prepared to perform his bidding from official positions in government, law enforcement, the judiciary and the media.  Although precise numbers are impossible to verify, some have estimated that he currently controls more than half of the entire Turkish police force. The Economist newspaper compared Gülen’s influence in Turkey to the Freemason infiltration of law enforcement and judicial elites in Europe during the last century. Numerous documented cases in Turkey involving planted evidence, tainted prosecutions and illegal incarceration of Gülen critics underscore that he is quite willing to abuse his power and influence.
•Visit Charter School Watchdog  for more info on the Islamic charter school deception

The same game plan is playing out, at last count, in 101 countries on every habitable continent.  With an estimated six million followers globally and assets in the range of $20-$50 billion, the Gülen organization has managed to conceal a great deal about its doctrine, mission or objectives.  Whether Gülen’s followers are classified as a religious sect, a commercial enterprise, a political movement or – as Dutch legislators concluded – a cult, it should be a matter of significant concern for our security and regulatory authorities.

In light of Gülen’s modus operandi elsewhere, the Department of Homeland Security should be asking itself why such a non-transparent, religion-based organization would seek to establish itself on our military bases, teaching the children of our service men and women. source

HERE THEY COME: The First Of Obama’s Muslim Migrant Refugees From ‘Surge Operation’ To Arrive In US

Since October last year, 1,000 Syrian refugees have moved from Jordan to the U.S. The resettlement surge hopes to increase that number ten-fold. A resettlement surge center opened in Amman in February to meet President Barack Obama’s target of resettling 10,000 Syrians to the United States by Sep. 30. Every day, the center interviews some 600 Syrian refugees.


The first Syrian Muslim migrant family to be resettled to the U.S. under its speeded-up “surge operation” departed to the United States Wednesday from the Jordanian capital, Amman.

EDITOR’S NOTE: In the typical devious style of the Obama administration, a single Muslim migrant family is being showcased as being representative of the rest of the migrants who will follow after them. But nothing could be further from the truth. Mixed in with the legitimate refugees will be thousands of ****, Muslim jihadi terrorists. Paris, Brussels, Jacksonville…

Ahmad al-Abboud, who is being resettled with his wife and five children, said that although he is thankful to Jordan — where he has lived for three years after fleeing Syria’s civil war — he is hopeful of finding a better life in the U.S.

Where will America’s No-Go Zones start? Flint Michigan  :) dok

This is what it’s like when Muslim migrants arrive in your country. Obama’s dream of America as a third world nation is coming true.

“I’m happy. America is the country of freedom and democracy, there are jobs opportunities, there is good education, and we are looking forward to having a good life over there,” al-Abboud said. The family, who are from the Syrian city of Homs, had been living in Mafraq, a town north of Amman. He was unable to find work in Jordan, and the family was surviving on food coupons.

Ahmad, who is 45 years old, said he had ambitious to find a job to support his family and to learn English.

“I am ready to integrate in the U.S. and start a new life,” he said, speaking to The Associated Press in Amman’s airport, where the family was due to board a flight to Kansas City, Missouri.

Since October last year, 1,000 Syrian refugees have moved from Jordan to the U.S. The resettlement surge hopes to increase that number ten-fold.

A resettlement surge center opened in Amman in February to meet President Barack Obama’s target of resettling 10,000 Syrians to the United States by Sep. 30. Every day, the center interviews some 600 Syrian refugees.

The temporary processing center for the surge operation will run until April 28, U.S. Ambassador to Jordan Alice Wells said. She travelled to the airport to greet the family before their departure.

The regional refugee coordinator at the U.S. embassy in Amman, Gina Kassem, said that while the 10,000 target applies to Syrian refugees living around the world, the majority will be resettled from Jordan.

“The 10,000 is a floor and not a ceiling, and it is possible to increase the number,” she told reporters.

While the resettlement process usually takes 18 to 24 months, under the surge operation this will be reduced to three months, Kassem said.

The U.N. Refugee Agency prioritizes the most vulnerable cases for resettlement, and then refers them to the U.S. to review, Kassem said. She said that priority is given to high-risk groups such as victims of torture and gender based violence and unaccompanied minors. “We do not have exclusions or look for families with certain education background, language skills or other socio-economic factors, and we do not cut family sizes,” she said.

Jordan hosts around 635,000 of the more than 4.7 million Syrians registered with the U.N. refugee agency after fleeing Syria’s civil war. The total number of Syrians in Jordan is more than 1.2 million, including those who arrived before the conflict. source

United Nations Demands ‘Alternative Ways’ To Admit More Muslim Migrants Into United States

UNHCR next month [March 2016] is convening a meeting to look at what are being called “alternative safe pathways” for Syrian refugees. There may be ways that we could encourage Syrians to come to the U.S. without going through this laborious, time-consuming process of refugee resettlement.


United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is considering “alternative” ways to admit more Muslim migrants to the United States, beyond the current refugee resettlement program, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

“The legitimacy and transparency of these new ‘alternative pathways,’ aimed at admitting increasing numbers of Syrian refugees into the United States without calling them ‘refugees,’ remain to be seen,” CIS senior researcher Nayla Rush wrote in a report Monday. “They might even amount to convenient admissions detours at a time when the U.S. refugee resettlement program is under tight scrutiny.”

According to Rush, facing a target to resettle 480,000 Syrian refugees over the next three years, U.N. representatives have already been laying the rhetorical groundwork for pursuing such alternatives to resettlement. During a panel discussion at the Brookings Institution in February, Rush detailed, Beth Harris, Research Professor at Georgetown University and adviser to the United Nations Secretary General on humanitarian refugee policy noted the possibility of alternative paths.

Refugees and government officials are expecting this crisis to last 10 or 15 years. It’s time that we no longer work as business as usual … UNHCR next month [March 2016] is convening a meeting to look at what are being called “alternative safe pathways” for Syrian refugees. Maybe it’s hard for the U.S. to go from 2,000 to 200,000 refugees resettled in a year, but maybe there are ways we can ask our universities to offer scholarships to Syrian students. Maybe we can tweak some of our immigration policies to enable Syrian-Americans who have lived here to bring not only their kids and spouses but their uncles and their grandmothers. There may be ways that we could encourage Syrians to come to the U.S. without going through this laborious, time-consuming process of refugee resettlement.

At the UNHCR March “high level” meeting in Geneva, Rush detailed, UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi called for “alternative avenues” for countries to admit more Syrian refugees.

These pathways can take many forms: not only resettlement, but also more flexible mechanisms for family reunification, including extended family members, labour mobility schemes, student visa and scholarships, as well as visa for medical reasons. Resettlement needs vastly outstrip the places that have been made available so far… But humanitarian and student visa, job permits and family reunification would represent safe avenues of admission for many other refugees as well.

According to Rush, Heather Higginbottom, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, attended the Geneva meeting along with representatives from 92 countries. The U.S. has pledged to admit at least 10,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year, despite concerns voiced by top national security officials and Republicans that the vetting process is not sufficient enough to weed out possible terrorist threats.

As Rush noted, after the meeting, in addition to reiterating its resettlement goals, the Obama administration made additional promises.

“The United States pledged an additional $10 million to UNHCR to strengthen its efforts to identify and refer vulnerable refugees, including Syrians, for resettlement.”

“The United States joins UNHCR in calling for new ways nations, civil society, the private sector, and individuals can together address the global refugee challenge.”

“Additionally, the United States has created a program to allow U.S. citizens and permanent residents to file refugee applications for their Syrian family member.”source

Obama Sets Single-Day Record For Most Muslim Migrants Admitted Into The United States

The overwhelming majority of the refugees who have been admitted are Muslim. Yet the real victims - the real refugees in Syria - are largely Christian. Obama has a clear preference for the Muslim refugees. There is no way to vet these refugees. Records in many cases don't exist - and ISIS doesn't recruit people with criminal records.

The State Department admitted 80 Syrian Muslim migrants on Tuesday and 225 on Monday, setting a new single-day record, as President Obama surges to try to meet his target of 10,000 approvals this year — sparking renewed fears among security experts who say corners are being cut to meet a political goal

Officials insisted they’re moving faster because they’re getting better at screening, and say they’re still running all the traps on applicants. But the new spike in numbers is stunning, with more people accepted on Monday alone than were approved in the entire months of January or February.

“The Obama administration is on full throttle to admit as many people as possible before the time clock runs out on them,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies. “This is the classic scenario when political expediency trumps prudence, and someone slips through who shouldn’t have, and tragedy ensues.”

Ayatollah: Mahdi coming back in spaceship!

A prominent Iranian ayatollah says the Mahdi, the end-times Muslim savior, will come back in a spaceship with the sound “of thunder and its power and speed is that of lightning.”

Actually, his recent explanation wasn’t completely clear.

“It is like a spaceship and like other swift and amazing space vessels that are found [only] in stories today, but nobody knows how close [these vessels] come to truth and reality. Maybe it will be like [a spaceship] but in any case it is not a spaceship,” he said.

His description was discovered in an Iranian news report by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and analyzes media reports in the region.

The comments came from Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi, who operates his own website to promote his views.

He was respoinding  to a question about the “arrival of the Mahdi – the Hidden Imam who is the equivalent of the Messiah in Shiite Islam,” MEMRI reported.

“He explained at length how the Mahdi’s arrival will be high-tech, as befits the modern age,” MEMRI said.

His comments included:

    “It was said by Imam Sadegh [the sixth Shiite imam, circa. 700–765 C.E.]: ‘When our Lord arrives, the land will be illuminated by divine light, and [God’s] creations will no longer require sunlight.’ The interpretation of this saying is that the issue of light and energy is expressed in that both in daytime and nighttime powerful lights can replace sunlight.”

    “Today we use satellites [and by means of them] cover extensive areas, so that anyone with a receiver can use them… In the time of the Mahdi’s arrival, there will be a powerful apparatus, that may be difficult for us to imagine today, for transmitting images so that the entire world is visible like the palm of a hand. Without worldwide control by an intelligence [apparatus], there can be no unified global regime [as foretold that there will be when the Mahdi arrives], and no peace, security, and decency… Therefore, God grants him this tool… Once again I stress that this is a routine matter, and that it is inconceivable that it will come about based on a miracle; rather [it will come about] by means of ordinary tools that are based on scientific and industrial advances.”

    “Another hadith states: ‘A bestial vessel is reserved for your Lord and Friend [the Mahdi]. What is the meaning of ‘bestial vessel’? A cloud that is loud as thunder and fast as lightning, upon which he rides. Be aware that soon he will [appear] riding on clouds, and ascending to seven heavens and seven lands.’ This does not refer to an ordinary cloud, as clouds are not vessels that can be sailed upon in outer space. [Clouds] travel near the atmosphere that is close to the earth, and they cannot attain great altitudes. Therefore, the meaning here is an extraordinary and very swift vessel that looks like a dense cloud in the sky; its sound is that of thunder and its power and speed is that of lightning. When it moves, it slashes the heart of the sky with extraordinary force, and in this way it can advance to any point in the firmament. Therefore, this is a super-modern vessel, and there is none like it today. It is like a spaceship and like other swift and amazing space vessels that are found [only] in stories today, but nobody knows how close [these vessels] come to truth and reality. Maybe it will be like [a spaceship] but in any case it is not a spaceship… “

    “When the Mahdi rules, the pure will have the height of freedom, and the criminals will be monitored – maybe so much so that sound waves will be detected from the walls of their houses, and when necessary it will be possible to understand what they say at home.”

    “Perhaps a century ago, this statement [about detecting sound waves] would have seemed like an unimaginable miracle. Yet today, some countries monitor traffic on the roads using radar, with no police present. Therefore, it is clear that during the global revolution of the Mahdi… there will be an unprecedented expansion of industry and technology.”

French President Calls For France To ‘Embrace Islam’ After Devastating Islamic Terror Attacks

Asking whether Islam could co-exist with secularism, like Christianity and Judaism, he insisted: 'My answer is yes, certainly.' 'The question the Republic must answer is: Is it really ready to embrace a religion that it did not expect to be this big over a century ago? There too, my answer is yes, certainly.'


Islam can co-exist with secularism, President Francois Hollande said Thursday, warning in a speech seen as preparing the ground for a re-election bid that the anti-terror fight should not undermine French values.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Like Angela Merkel in Germany, French president Francois Hollande is on a crusade to destroy his country. After repeated Islamic terror attacks that have wreaked havoc in France, killing hundreds and wounding hundreds more, Hollande said yesterday that “yes, of course, we can peacefully coexist with Islam”. Speechless, honestly.

The deeply unpopular Hollande has yet to announce whether he will run for a second term next year, but is widely expected to be a candidate. In a passionate plea for tolerance, he defended the country’s Muslim minority following a vitriolic debate on the banning of the Islamic burkini swimsuit.
Paris terror attacks: why is France particularly targeted by the Islamic state group?

‘Nothing in the idea of secularism opposes the practice of Islam in France, provided it respects the law,’ Hollande said. Secularism was not a ‘state religion’ to be used against other religions, he said in the speech in Paris, denouncing the ‘stigmatisation of Muslims’.

Mayors in around 30 towns this summer cited France’s century-old secular laws in banning head-to-toe swimwear on their beaches, unleashing a furore. Several of the towns later revoked the bans after France’s highest administrative court ruled they were a ‘serious’ violation of basic freedoms.

Hollande rejected calls by conservatives, including his arch-rival, former president Nicolas Sarkozy, for the state to ban the burkini, saying it would be ‘unconstitutional’.
Asking whether Islam could co-exist with secularism, like Christianity and Judaism, he insisted: ‘My answer is yes, certainly.’

‘The question the Republic must answer is: Is it really ready to embrace a religion that it did not expect to be this big over a century ago? There too, my answer is yes, certainly.’

In a wide-ranging address Hollande cast himself as a guardian of democracy, resisting calls for more repressive laws following a string of jihadist attacks that have left over 230 people dead in France since January 2015.
Donald Trump declares World War after France Terror Attack

The authorities this week launched another anti-terror investigation, following the discovery of six gas cylinders in an abandoned car near Paris’ Notre Dame cathedral.

Seven people are being held over the find, which comes two months after a Tunisian radical slammed a lorry into a crowd of Bastille Day revellers in Nice, killing 86 people. Hollande said attack plots had been foiled ‘in recent days’ but did not elaborate.

The government has responded to the threat by deploying thousands of troops to patrol the streets, enacting a raft of anti-terror laws and repeatedly extending a state of emergency – measures deemed insufficient by the conservative opposition.

Sarkozy, who has announced a bid to try to win back the presidency in next year’s election, has called for suspected radicals to be interned in camps.

The former president responded late Thursday to Hollande’s comments, saying that ‘democracy can’t be weak. We are France, we cannot accept impotence.’ source

Clinton stresses U.S. 'resolve' in terrorism fight; warns Trump policies aid militant recruitment

NEW YORK — Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Monday that the United States is up to the challenge of combating terrorism on its shores, and warned that anti-Muslim rhetoric by opponent Donald Trump is “giving aid and comfort” to the Islamic State.

“We know that a lot of the rhetoric that we’ve heard from Donald Trump has been seized on by terrorists, including ISIS, because they are looking to make this a war against Islam,” Clinton said, using an acronym for the Islamic State.

“They want to use that to recruit more fighters to their cause by turning it into a religious conflict,” Clinton said, adding that the right approach is to go after “the bad guys” but not their religion.

Her comments came while a manhunt was underway for Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Afghanistan, a suspect in connection with bombings Saturday in Manhattan and Seaside Park, N.J. He was reportedly taken into custody several hours after his name was made public.

Earlier Monday, Trump said current anti-terrorism efforts are insufficient at home and abroad, for which he blames President Obama and Clinton, who served as Obama’s first-term secretary of state.

The United States is too tentative in its targeting efforts against terrorism overseas, Trump said in an interview, adding that the better approach would be to “knock the hell out of ‘em” and possibly introduce “racial profiling” as a counterterrorism tactic.

“We have to lead for a change. Because we’re not knocking them, we’re hitting them once in awhile, we’re hitting them in certain places. We’re being very gentle about it. We’re going to have to be very tough,” Trump told Fox News Channel.

A week before the first presidential debate between Clinton and Trump, bombings and an investigation in New York and New Jersey at least temporarily refocused the presidential race on concerns about domestic terrorism and national security.

“This threat is real, but so is our resolve. Americans will not cower. We will prevail,” Clinton said. “We will defend our country, and we will defeat the evil, twisted ideology of the terrorists.”

Clinton, who also served as a U.S. senator from New York, quickly pointed to her own experience, in direct contrast to Trump. The New York businessman has never held elected office. Clinton sought to reassure Americans that law enforcement and other authorities are up to the task — a clear message to voters worried about how the next administration will confront security challenges.

Polling suggests voters often trust Republicans over Democrats when it comes to dealing with terrorism, although in this election voters also say Clinton is more qualified to be commander in chief.

“I am the only candidate in this race who has been part of the hard decisions to take terrorists off the battlefield,” Clinton said.

She added that she had laid out “a comprehensive plan to meet the evolving nature of this threat and take the fight to ISIS everywhere they threaten us, including online.”

Trump, she insisted, has no real plan.

In touting her credentials, Clinton also pointed to the endorsements she has received from Republican national security leaders, who have voiced graved concerns about the prospect of Trump as commander in chief.

“I’m grateful to have support and advice from a wide range of bipartisan national security leaders, who worked with both Democratic and Republican presidents,” Clinton said.

Clinton spoke at a hastily called news conference held in an airplane hangar, with her campaign plane behind her. She was headed to Philadelphia for a speech aimed at young voters, many of whom are cool toward her candidacy and are helping buoy the third-party run of libertarian Gary Johnson.

Trump said authorities may have to engage in racial profiling to more effectively fight the threat of terrorist attacks in the United States.

“Our local police, they know who a lot of these people are. They are afraid to do anything about it because they don’t want to be accused of, uh, profiling. And they don’t want to be accused of all sorts of things,” Trump said in the Fox interview.

He concluded: “Do we have a choice? Look what’s going on. Do we really have a choice? We’re tying to be so politically correct in our country.”

It’s not the first time Trump has suggested that racial profiling could be an effective tactic.

“But look, we have — whether it’s racial profiling or politically correct, we’d better get smart,” he said at a Fox News town hall meeting in August. “We are letting tens of thousands of people into our country. We don’t know what the hell we’re doing.”

On Saturday night, as initial reports about an explosion in Manhattan were still coming in and before the authorities had announced the details, Trump told supporters at a rally that a “bomb” had gone off in New York. On Monday, he bragged about his choice of words.

“What I said is exactly correct. I should be a newscaster because I called it before the news,” Trump said.

“I must tell you that just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what’s going on,” Trump said shortly after he left his plane at a rally in Colorado Springs on Saturday night.

Law enforcement officials said they are investigating whether Rahami could have been influenced by international militant groups or the ongoing conflict in his homeland.

John Wagner in White Plains, N.Y. contributed to this report.

ISIS Prepares for Armageddon Battle Against US Special Forces

While God’s judgement of the world hangs in balance during the Days of Awe between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, a battle is being fought in a small, dusty town in Syria that ISIS and many of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims believe will usher in Mahdi, the Islamic concept of Messiah.

ISIS believes Mahdi will come after the final apocalyptic battle between “Rome” (or America, in its modern incarnation) and Islam is fought in Dabiq, Syria. Though the current has little strategic military importance and the outcome seems certain, as a small group of ISIS fighters face off against American-led troops, the Koran prophesies that this battle, win or lose, will set off a process resulting in all infidels choosing between conversion and death.

One expert sees this battle as a catalyst setting off intensified ISIS terror attacks around the world in an attempt by the Islamic State to fulfill the prophecy.

“ISIS believes quite strongly that the primary eschatological battle between the Muslims and the Christian forces will be fought there,” Dr. Timothy Furnish, an international media commentator and author on radical Islam, explained to Breaking Israel News. “They have been trying to goad the West, primarily the US, into inserting ground forces at that locale.”

Dr. Furnish cited a hadith (Islamic teaching attributed to Mohammed) which states that the “Last Hour would not come” until a vastly superior Roman army composed of “the best soldiers of the people of the earth at that time” came to battle Islam in Dabiq.

Islam’s vision of Messiah is the resurrection of a Muslim Jesus, who will convert all Christians to Islam. Those who do not convert will be killed.

Dabiq is a small Syrian town with a population of 3,000, about 10 miles from the border with Turkey. Rebel troops, including 300 US Special Forces, are currently moving to take the town back from ISIS. Fighting has been fierce and casualties are already high on both sides. Despite its relative unimportance, Islamic State has been focusing all of its efforts on the city.

The battle began on Monday, when the Free Syrian Army – Syrian rebel forces supported by America and Turkey – captured Turkman Bareh, four miles east of Dabiq. The anti-ISIS forces predicted they would capture Dabiq within 48 hours, but their advance slowed after they encountered extensively mined areas, mortars, and explosive devices in their path. Fighting was reported to be especially fierce as ISIS reinforcements poured into the region.

ISIS has put great effort into attracting American attention to the backwater of Dabiq, naming its online propaganda magazine after the town of Muslim armageddon. The magazine’s front cover quotes former terrorist leader and killer Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who proclaimed in 2004, “The spark has been lit here in Iraq, and its heat will continue to intensify – by Allah’s permission – until it burns the crusader armies in Dabiq.”

The small town was prominently featured in a video of Mohammed Emwazi, a British citizen dubbed “Jihadi John“, who joined ISIS and murdered five Western hostages in 2014. He taunted American viewers with the severed head of American aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, a former US Army Ranger, at his feet.

“Here we are, burying the first American Crusader in Dabiq, eagerly waiting for the remainder of your armies to arrive,” Emwazi said in the video.

Their efforts to attract America’s attention seems to have succeeded, as the US-led coalition brings “the best soldiers of the people of the earth” directly to Dabiq. Nonetheless, it is not holding onto the city or even winning the battle that is significant to ISIS, but the fact of the battle itself.

Dr. Mordechai Kedar, an Israeli scholar of Arabic literature and a lecturer at Bar-Ilan University, believes that ISIS will not relinquish its twisted version of Messiah, even if it is defeated in the prophesied Battle of Dabiq.

“No doubt, Dabiq carries a very heavy Islamic meaning,” Dr. Kedar told Breaking Israel News. “I think that the Islamic State will not turn Dabiq into a fight for eternity, and will withdraw eventually from Dabiq as well as from other parts of Syria.”

But Dr. Khedar believes an ISIS defeat in Dabiq will be even more catastrophic for the West than an ISIS victory.

“They will claim that the war on Dabiq can be carried out in the streets of Paris, London, Berlin, Washington DC and Jerusalem,” Dr. Kedar warned. “Meanwhile we can see a war between Russia and the US on Syria. Put simply, Gog and Magog.”

A hijab-wearing Muslim is now one of the beautiful faces of CoverGirl

(CNN)A Muslim, hijab-wearing woman is now one of the easy, breezy and beautiful faces of CoverGirl.

The cosmetics company announced beauty blogger Nura Afia as one of the latest brand ambassadors for its "So Lashy" mascara, meaning she, along with a diverse lineup of other models, will appear in CoverGirl commercials and on a billboard in Times Square.

For Afia, a Muslim woman in hijab representing a mainstream US cosmetics brand, is a milestone for the Muslim community.

"It's a big accomplishment for all of us," Afia told CNN. "It means that little girls that grew up like me have something to look up to. I grew up feeling like hijab would hold me back."

If that was ever the case, it seems like the hijab certainly isn't holding Afia back now. She has more than 200,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel, where she posts video tutorials on how to recreate various makeup looks, and more than 300,000 followers on Instagram.

Islamist extremists celebrate Trump’s election win

Donald Trump's presidential election victory has already been cheered by Russian President Vladimir Putin, a constellation of right-wing European populists, a former Ku Klux Klan leader and a Middle Eastern strongman. But there's another curious constituency that seems to be happy about the new American president-elect.

Shortly after Trump was declared the victor, a number of prominent Salafist ideologues linked to jihadist outfits in the Middle East took to social media to cheer the prospect of a Trump presidency. Now News, a Lebanese English-language website, aggregated their comments.

The remarks signaled the militants' apparent belief that the victory of a candidate like Trump, who has suggested potentially unconstitutional blocks on Muslim immigration and advocated torture, undermines the United States' moral standing in the world.

"Trump’s victory is a powerful slap to those promoting the benefits of democratic mechanisms,” tweeted Hamza al-Karibi, a media spokesman for Syrian jihadist group Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, which was formerly affiliated with al-Qaeda before rebranding itself this year in a bid to avoid being targeted by both Russian and American airstrikes.

Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, a jihadist ideologue linked to al-Qaeda who has close to 60,000 followers on Twitter, gloated about Trump's victory, suggesting that it "may be the beginning of America’s fragmentation and the era of its breakup." In a second tweet, he said that Trump "reveals the true mentality of the Americans, and their racism toward Muslims and Arabs and everything. He reveals what his predecessors used to conceal. So his victory further exposes America and its appendages.”

“Have you seen how pleasant a society it is!” tweeted another Salafist-jihadist mainstay, Abu Qatada al-Filastini, who was deported from Britain in 2014, to tens of thousands of followers. “This is the American society that [supposedly] opposes its leaders’ policies by not hating or disdaining the world, and then it votes by the millions for Trump!”

The reaction of these extremists is the reverse of some of the consternation aired in the United States by Trump's critics, who see in his demagogic rise the unraveling of the American republic and the collapse of the myth of American exceptionalism.

Farther east, in Afghanistan, a spokesman for the Taliban used language not out of place among the ultra-nationalist, populist movements in Europe that aligned themselves with Trump's campaign, oppose immigration and, sometimes, agitate against intervening in conflicts elsewhere.

“Our message is that the Americans should draft a policy not to take away the independence and sovereignty of other nations,” the militant group said in a statement Wednesday. “Most importantly, they should withdraw all their troops from Afghanistan.”

Canada prepares welcome mat for American 'asylum seekers'

Predictions of an American exodus under a Donald Trump presidency were largely viewed as tongue in cheek during the campaign.

Canadians greeted the prospect of American refugees with their typical quirky humor, eagerly touting the country's healthcare system, poutine, maple syrup and "the good side of the Niagara Falls."

But as it became clear late Tuesday that Trump was on a sure path to the White House, interest in moving to Canada spiked and crashed the country's immigration website.

"I think it's an emotional reaction. I don't know if they'll follow through," Ottawa immigration lawyer Julie Taub told AFP on Wednesday, hours after Trump was declared the president-elect.

"It's unlikely that a flood of Americans would arrive at the border seeking asylum."

However, Taub and other immigration lawyers said they received several inquiries from Americans as they arrived at the office in the morning.

Over the past year, Canadian real estate agencies and regions with sparse populations used the US election to launch marketing campaigns to attract newcomers.

"Move to beautiful Nunavut," said a Twitter message on Wednesday, hyping the Arctic territory's pristine environment and "10 months of winter each year."

The island of Cape Breton in Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast welcomed Americans under the slogan, "Cape Breton if Donald Trump wins."

It offered jobs and cheap homes just 250 miles (400 kilometers) from the US border.

The immigration website explains what steps to take and the criteria necessary to be eligible for Canadian residency.

Access to the site became progressively slower as Trump picked up key states, before finally displaying an error message at 11 pm Tuesday (0400 GMT Wednesday) when Trump clinched the swing state of Florida.

Canada takes in about 300,000 immigrants and refugees annually.

Burqa Ban Scrapped Following Outcry

On Tuesday, Georgia state Rep. Jason Spencer proposed a bill to bar women in the state from wearing burqas, hijabs, or other forms of veiling on public property, including roads and highways, and for any public identification cards, such as driver’s licenses. By Thursday, however, the legislation had been withdrawn as a result of intense scrutiny and criticism it had received for its discriminatory tone.

Spencer’s bill did not explicitly mention Muslim women and religious veiling but rather sought to expand upon a law already on the books in Georgia aimed at members of the Ku Klux Klan by preventing them from wearing ceremonial hoods in public places and IDs for the sake of public safety. Yet the Republican politician’s bill did seek to revise the existing law by explicitly including women in the mandated ban on the public wearing of masks, hoods, or other devices that in any way cover or obscure the face. The bill, if approved, would have kept Muslim women from wearing religious veils not only while driving but also while walking on sidewalks and in parks or other public recreation areas.

“We suspect it’s motivated by a desire to discriminate against Georgia Muslims,” Edward Ahmed Mitchell, executive director for CAIR-Georgia, told the Washington Post. “The bill is a bad solution to a nonexistent problem.”

Aisha Yaqoob of the Georgia Muslim Voter Project told Atlanta’s ABC affiliate WSB-TV that she believed the bill was rooted in bigotry and she couldn’t understand the need for a state law that specifically targets Muslim women. The practice of veiling is one utilized by some Muslim women as a sign of modesty, in accord with their religious beliefs. (Orthodox Jewish women also often cover their hair by wearing wigs or hats because of religious standards of modesty.) Civil rights experts insist that the ability to veil — whether wearing a hijab, burqa, or other form of religious veil — is a constitutionally guaranteed right, inherent in the ability of individuals to freely and safely practice their religion.

Just last year, the Supreme Court ruled against retailer Abercrombie & Fitch after the brand had refused to hire a Muslim American woman who interviewed while wearing a hijab, insisting that the wearing of a hijab was a violation of the company’s dress code policy. The court determined that this move constituted religious discrimination.

On Wednesday, Spencer told WSB-TV, “This bill is simply a response to constituents that do have concerns of the rise of Islamic terrorism, and we in the state of Georgia do not want our laws used against us.”

Then, in a statement released the next day, Spencer adjusted his message: “While this bill does not contain language that specifically targets any group, I am mindful of the perception that it has created. My objective was to address radical elements that could pose a threat to public safety. However, further consideration dictates that other solutions will need to be considered. In conclusion, anti-masking statutes have been upheld as constitutional (State v Miller, 1990), and HB 3 would withstand legal scrutiny, but not political scrutiny.”

Reince Priebus: ‘We’re not going to have a registry based on a religion’

Incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus says President-elect Donald Trump’s administration is “not going to rule out anything” when it comes to immigration. But Priebus appeared to suggest the creation of a Muslim registry is not in Trump’s plans.

“Where systematic terrorism is taking place, where countries are harboring or in places where countries are harboring and training terrorists,” Priebus said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, “we’re going to temporarily suspend immigration from that country, or region, until a better vetting system is put in place.”

Trump told Yahoo News last year that he was open to the possibility of a database for Muslim Americans. The proposal was met with swift backlash and Trump distanced himself from the idea. But last week, a Trump policy adviser, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, said Trump was mulling a registry for immigrants from Muslim countries.

Kobach met with Trump at his golf course in Bedminster, N.J., on Sunday afternoon.

During his interview on CNN, Priebus was asked whether he agreed with retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn — Trump’s choice for national security adviser — who once tweeted that Americans’ “fear of Muslims is rational.”

“There are some people within that particular religion that we do fear,” Priebus said of Islam. “We don’t believe in religious tests and we are not blanketly judging an entire religion, but in fact we will try to pinpoint the problems and temporarily suspend [people from] those areas from coming into the United States until a better vetting system is in place.”

On ABC’s “This Week,” Priebus said that “clearly there are some aspects of that faith that are problematic, and we know them; we’ve seen it.”

On NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Priebus said Trump “believes that no faith in and of itself should be judged as a whole” but that “there are some people that need to be prevented from coming into this country.”

Asked by “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd whether he can “equivocally rule out a registry for Muslims,” Priebus responded: “Look, I’m not going to rule out anything. But, but I wouldn’t — we’re not going to have a registry based on a religion.”

“What we’re trying to do is say that there are some people, certainly not all people, Chuck, there are some people that are radicalized and there are some people that have to be prevented from coming into this country,” Priebus continued. “And Donald Trump’s position, President Trump’s position is consistent with bills in the House and the Senate that say the following: If you come, if you want to come from a place or an area around the world that harbors and trains terrorists, we have to temporarily suspend that operation until a better, better vetting system is put in place.”

He continued: “And when that happens, when a better vetting system is put in place, then those radical folks, or excuse me, they’ll be, they will not be allowed in, but then others will be allowed in. But only until that is done.”

Trump’s pick for attorney general, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, argued in favor of a religious test for immigrants on the Senate floor. “Many people are radicalized after they enter,” Sessions said last December.

“How do we screen for that possibility, if we cannot even ask about an applicant’s views on religion? Would we forbid questions about politics? Or theology?”

The same month, Trump ignited a firestorm of controversy by calling for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

The proposal, which came in the wake of the deadly mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., by a pair of suspected ISIS sympathizers, was altered by Trump at the Republican National Convention to a temporary suspension of “immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism.”

Trump later called it an “expansion” of his original plan.

“I’m looking now at territory,” Trump said on “Meet the Press” on July 24. “People were so upset when I used the word ‘Muslim.’ ‘Oh, you can’t use the word ‘Muslim.’ Remember this. And I’m OK with that, because I’m talking territory instead of ‘Muslim.’”

Def Jam Records co-founder Russell Simmons will host a rally dubbed ‘I Am a Muslim Too’ on Sunday in Times Square to protest President Donald Trump’s recent executive action on immigration.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Race baiter Russell Simmons wants you to “be a Muslim” this weekend, and make a stand for “African Americans, women, Latinos, Asians and LGBTQ”. But what he does not want you to do is to support our president, and he calls white males “the oppressor”, which leads me to believe that at least part of his rally is an incitement against white males.

Women’s March on Washington organizer Linda Sarsour and MuslimGirl founder Amani al-Khatahtbeh will speak at the event, along with Rabbi Marc Schneier of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and Imam Shamsi Ali of the Jamaica Muslim Center.

“Everyone except white privileged males are in immediate danger,” Simmons said in a statement. “African Americans, women, Latinos, Asians and LGBTQ are all at risk, but there is no freedom in that privileged status either because the spirit of the oppressor is oppressed as well.”

“We are living in a time when unity will make America great,” he added. “This is a special moment for all Americans of good will to band together to promote the kind of compassion and equality for others that we want for ourselves.”

The rally is scheduled to run from noon until 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Earlier this month, President Trump introduced an executive order that temporarily prohibited immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries known to be hotbeds of terrorism. The order was later blocked by judges from the 9th Circuit Court.

In a blog post on GlobalCitizen.org on Thursday, Simmons described Trump’s order as “morally, politically, economically, and ethically unconstitutional.”

“As a yogi, I feel and believe all Americans should feel personally threatened by Trump’s choices to target Muslims,” the 59-year-old rap mogul and entrepreneur said. “Targeting any one of us is in fact targeting all of us.”

“The people united cannot be divided,” he added. “See you there.” source

George Soros Has Infiltrated The Southern Baptist Convention And Suing To Build A Mosque In NJ
The International Mission Board (IMB) and Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) were 2 of 18 religious groups that filed an amicus brief decrying the Township of Bernards’ zoning board decision that required the proposed mosque to have more parking spaces than Christian or Jewish places of worship.

Pastor Dean Haun called the amicus brief an “unholy alliance” with a false religion, and accused the SBC agencies of overstepping their bounds, reported Baptist Press.

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” 2 Peter 2:1 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Some of you may know that for over a year now, the SBC (Southern Baptist Convention) has been backing a lawsuit demanding that a mosque in NJ be allowed to be built. But what you may not know is that George Soros has donated over $25 million dollars to this effort through Russell Moore, who serves on Soros’ Evangelical Immigration Table. Who is Russell Moore? He is the president of the SBC’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, and a mole for George Soros.

The trouble started last May, when several arms of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) reached out a legal hand to a Muslim community in New Jersey, publicly supporting their right to build a mosque.

The International Mission Board (IMB) and Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) were 2 of 18 religious groups that filed an amicus brief decrying the Township of Bernards’ zoning board decision that required the proposed mosque to have more parking spaces than Christian or Jewish places of worship.
Meet George Soros’ Mole Inside The Southern Baptist Convention:

The town’s reasoning: since Muslim services are held on Fridays, people would be coming after work instead of together as families, and therefore more spots would be needed. But when the Muslim community offered to split the services, or use ride-sharing or overflow arrangements, the board still denied their application.
Southern Baptist Convention Supports Mosques:

The amicus brief, which was also signed by the National Association of Evangelicals and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, argued that “such unequal treatment of the mosque in this case represents a potential threat to the free exercise rights of each of the amici represented here and is a affront to our nation’s commitment to religious liberty for all.”

On New Year’s Eve, a judge agreed.

Less than a month later, IMB trustee and Tennessee megachurch pastor Dean Haun resigned with a year left on his term.

“I love our IMB leadership and our missionaries and their work across the globe. I am not a rabble rouser and my heart is not to take down the IMB,” Haun told the Baptist and Reflector, the newspaper of the Tennessee Baptist Convention and one of the SBC’s oldest state papers.

“[But] if we defend the rights of people to construct places of false worship, are we not helping them speed down the highway to hell?” he said. “I want no part in supporting a false religion, even if it is in the name of religious freedom.”

He called the amicus brief an “unholy alliance” with a false religion, and accused the SBC agencies of overstepping their bounds, reported Baptist Press. source

It's Happening Folks!! Barbie Is Getting A Makeover

According to reports, a group of liberal woman wants to promote diversity by adding barbie dolls with Hijabs. RT Reported: Three Pittsburg moms are taking on Islamophobia with “Barbie-compatible” headscarves in an effort to teach children to be more inclusive by exposing them to doll-sized hijabs. Gisele Fetterman, Safaa Bokhari and Kristen Michaels created Hello Hijab to encourage inclusivity among the next generation. “They will see it as a kind memory from their playtime, and then they will grow into a kinder generation, being used to playing with dolls that look different to them.” Fetterman explained. Fetterman came up with the idea when she noticed none of her five-year old daughter’s dolls looked like many of her Muslim friends. Enlisting the help of her friend Safaa Bokhari and Pittsburg non-profit For Good, Hello Hijab was born. The $6 handmade hijabs come with a card explaining what a hijab is, and will be available from April 1, with the proceeds going to non-profits which serve multicultural communities. The women have received “dozens of hijabs from women who want them to be repurposed for this purpose.” The hijabs will be made from both new materials and hijabs that are donated to the cause.

Fetterman and Michaels say they have experienced some negativity, but “it just continues to validate the need for a project like this,” Fetterman said. “It’s allowed for a lot of conversations, it’s allowed for an education, a lot of folks aren’t familiar with so much of it.”

Motion M103 was tabled by Iqra Khalid, a Muslim member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. It states the government must “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination”, was taken to vote on Thursday evening where a total of 201 MPs voted for it and only 91 voted against, Canadian broadcaster Global News reports.


The Canadian House of Commons has passed motion M103 which singles out the criticism of Islam as a form of “Islamophobia”. Critics condemn it as an attack on free speech.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Canada just made it a crime to say anything critical of Islam with the passage of Motion M103, effectively chipping away another huge chunk of what remains of free speech in that nation. Conservatives are rightly afraid that they may soon see the establishment of Sharia Courts in Canada.

Motion M103 was tabled by Iqra Khalid, a Muslim member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. It states the government must “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination”, was taken to vote on Thursday evening where a total of 201 MPs voted for it and only 91 voted against, Canadian broadcaster Global News reports.

The text of the motion does not clarify what constitutes “Islamophobia” and has led many to speculate what that may mean in the future, with some critics fearing it could lead to Shariah law courts. This concern has led to the circulation of an anti-Shariah petition on the Parliament of Canada website, which has so far been signed by over 24,000 people.

Ms. Khalid, who was born in Pakistan and moved to the UK and then to Canada, said the definition of Islamophobia was: “The irrational hate of Muslims that leads to discrimination.”

When Conservatives asked her to remove Islamophobia from the motion, she said: “I will not do so, any more than I would speak to the Holocaust and not mention that the overwhelming majority of victims were six million followers of the Jewish faith and that anti-Semitism was the root cause of the Holocaust.”

Another part of the bill that has stirred controversy is the passage that asks the government to “recognise the need to quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear”. It is currently unknown what measures the government will take to “quell” “hate and fear” as the motion is not classified as a law and has no effect on current criminal law.

Poop-filled Coke cans are a real mystery

Police have launched an investigation after human waste was discovered in a shipment of Coke cans.

Coca-Cola have confirmed none of the products on sale is affected following the gross find.

We reveal all.
Where was the human waste in Coca-Cola found?

The discovery was made at the Knockmore Hill facility in Lisburn, Ireland.

The affected cans arrived from a German supplier that hadn’t been used previously.

The night shift at the factory was disrupted when stunned workers peeked into the cans and saw the waste after the machines became clogged.

A source told the Irish Independent: “It was absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned.

“It was unusual because normally the cans come from somewhere else in the UK, but this time they apparently came from Germany.”
How did human waste get into Coca-Cola?

The source told the paper: “The rumor is that some poor immigrants could have made that long journey in the [truck] and that in their desperation were forced to use the cans instead of a toilet.
“It’s really shocking — and beyond the shock of finding something pretty disgusting in the cans is the thought there could have been poor people in that situation.

“And if they did make that journey, where are they now?”

According to the Belfast Telegraph, the cans arrive at the factory without tops on, and are then filled with drink before being sealed and sold across Northern Ireland.

As Muslim Immigration To United States Increases, So Does Female Genital Mutilation Brutality Against Women
In a report last year, the CDC says the surge in female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) is “wholly a result of rapid growth in the number of immigrants from FGM/C-practicing countries living in the United States.” It then went on to list those countries, and virtually all of them have large Muslim populations.


If you think the cases of little-girl genital mutilation that made national headlines last month after a flurry of arrests in Detroit is a one-off event, think again.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Female Genital Mutilation is a disgusting and barbaric custom practiced by Muslim-dominated countries around the world to enslave and dominate young Islamic women. Islamic butchers like to call it “female circumcision”, but in reality it is more in line with female castration. As Muslims immigrate to the United States in ever-larger numbers, incidences of this illegal act grow exponentially. Mohammed told his followers in the hadith to do this to their young girls.

The CDC estimates that more than 513,000 girls and women — most of them living in New York, DC and Minneapolis — are now at risk of such disfigurement across the country, a threefold increase since 1990. What’s behind the sickening trend? Muslim immigration.

If it’s “Islamophobic” to say that, blame the US government.

In a report last year, the CDC says the surge in female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) is “wholly a result of rapid growth in the number of immigrants from FGM/C-practicing countries living in the United States.” It then went on to list those countries, and virtually all of them have large Muslim populations.
Female Genital Mutilation Comes to America:

Immigrants from Indonesia, the largest Muslim nation, are not factored into the government’s 513,000 figure. If they were, the size of the CDC estimate would likely grow by “several tens of thousands,” the 2016 study’s lead author says.

“Indonesian figures became available after we wrote our paper, but it turns out that FGM was much more common in Indonesia than had been thought,” recently retired CDC researcher Howard Goldberg told The Post.
Another CDC report singles out Syrian refugees, warning the barbaric practice may be widespread among these immigrants seeking asylum in the US.

It’s not just Muslim parents performing the religious — albeit illegal — ritual. It’s also licensed doctors at respected hospitals, who also happen to be Muslim. And they have the blessing of some of the most eminent Muslim scholars in America.

While Islamic apologists insist FGM has nothing to do with Islam, that it’s a pagan African custom, such arguments appear to be disinformation designed to protect the faith at the expense of little girls. Consider that the Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America, which renders official religious rulings for Muslims living in the US, promotes clitoris cutting as beneficial for women.

Senior AMJA official Dr. Hatem Elhagaly has ruled that the practice was endorsed by the Muslim prophet Muhammad in a hadith, or sacred supplement to the Koran. “A very small portion of the clitoris may be removed in the procedure,” he wrote in a recent fatwa.

An American Academy of Pediatrics fellow and Mayo Clinic pediatrician until 2012, Elhagaly acknowledges the practice is controversial, but advises American Muslims to ignore criticism: “We, however, should never doubt anything in our religion because of the bad publicity the media creates about it. Would it have been sensible for Muslims 50 years ago to doubt male circumcision because it was not yet shown by science to be of benefit?

“The same could be true with female circumcision,” he added. “They may figure out the benefits of the practice in 50 or 500 years.”

The World Health Organization, however, says the painful practice has no known health benefits. In fact, it can cause complications during childbirth, make intercourse painful and remove any pleasure a woman can get from sex.

Lawyers for the two Muslim doctors who federal authorities recently arrested in Detroit for mutilating two 7-year-old girls — and possibly 70 others — also claim they were doing it for health reasons. But the prosecutor argued, “This brutal practice is conducted on girls for one reason — to control them as women.” Forcing them to have all or part of their clitoris removed, the criminal complaint explains, ensures they remain chaste and don’t cheat on their future husbands. source

4,000 Muslim refugees hit U.S. in May alone
'Capable of some horrendous attacks,' and children just as threatening

In the wake of deadly Islamic terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, President Trump on Monday took to Twitter to decry the “slow and political” courts that have blocked his travel ban.

Executive Order 13780, signed by Trump in March, suspends the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days, restricts admissions and halts visa applications of citizens from Muslim-majority Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days. It includes other provisions designed to hinder the movement of terrorists to the United States.

Parts of the order were subsequently blocked by judges on the notoriously left-leaning 4th and 9th Circuit Courts. Last week, the Trump administration appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to allow the order to go into effect.

Trump tweeted early Monday morning, “People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!”

He continued: “The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original travel ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to [Supreme Court]. The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court – & seek much tougher version! In any event we are EXTREME VETTING people coming into the U.S. in order to help keep our country safe. The courts are slow and political!”

Ramadan 2017 On Track For Breaking Record For Number Of Killings By Islamic Terrorists Around The World
Ramadan 2016 featured 1,150 casualties — both death and injuries. This year, terrorists – namely the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), Taliban, and al-Qaeda, among other jihadists – have already killed or wounded more than 1,500 people across about 15 countries and there are still about 20 days left in the month. During the first 12 days of Ramadan 2017 period, there have been an estimated 60 terror attacks carried out in the name of Allah (by Islamic extremists) resulting in the death of 832 people and injury of 912.



The estimated 832 deaths and 912 injuries from the estimated 60 attacks that have taken place across about 19 countries during the first 12 days of this year’s holy Muslim month of Ramadan have already marked the bloodiest Ramadan in recent years for adherents of Islam.
“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” Qu’ran 8:12

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Muslim month-long-holiday of Ramadan means a lot of things to a lot of people. And for nearly 1,000 people during the first 12 days of the “celebration”, it means death. Why? Because they were killed by Muslims celebrating Ramadan. Wouldn’t it be great if we lived in a world where, instead of “fasting and praying” for 30 days, Muslims simply refrained from killing innocent people? Keep dreaming…

Jihadists believe martyrdom is doubly rewarded in paradise during Ramadan. Jihadist groups encourage martyrdom among their sympathizers and followers, promoting the belief that they will be doubly rewarded if they fatally castigate infidels during Ramadan. The holy month this year is on track to surpass the deadliest and bloodiest Ramadan in the modern record: Ramadan 2016.

Ramadan 2016 featured 1,150 casualties — both death and injuries. This year, terrorists – namely the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), Taliban, and al-Qaeda, among other jihadists – have already killed or wounded more than 1,500 people across about 15 countries and there are still about 20 days left in the month.

During the first 12 days of Ramadan 2017 period, there have been an estimated 60 terror attacks carried out in the name of Allah (by Islamic extremists) resulting in the death of 832 people and injury of 912.

The death toll for the first few days of Ramadan this year has already surpassed the fatalities that occurred during the entire holy month last year — 421 deaths and 729 injuries. Among the 2016 fatalities are women, children, and members of the Christian minority. This year is no exception.

Ramadan-Bombathon-2017There are members of a wide variety of ethnic and religious groups among the victims: Westerners, Christians, Asians, Sunnis, Shias, and Arabs. Muslims of all sects made up the majority. As recent attacks in England, Germany, and France show, the West is not immune to the Islamic extremists’ call to attack during Ramadan.

This year, the first full day of Ramadan fell on May 27. Muslims follow the tradition of abstaining from eating, drinking, smoking, having sex, and other physical needs each day, starting from before the break of dawn until sunset during the holy month.

Breitbart News’ count, gleaned from the Religion of Peace website in coordination with news reports, excludes the number of casualties directly linked to battles between U.S.-led coalition troops and jihadists groups, as well as Iranian- and Russian-backed troops loyal to dictator Bashar al-Assad.

If all of the deaths from the ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan had been included, the total number would be much higher. The Religion of Peace website acknowledges their estimate is an undercount, so the number of Ramadan deaths and injuries could be higher.
Some of the terrorist attacks during Ramadan 2017 include:

May 27 — Charchino, Afghanistan — Group fighting in favor of imposing Islamic law ambushes checkpoint, kills 11.
May 27 — Qadis, Afghanistan — Taliban kills 14, injures 17.

TERROR ATTACK : “Allahu Akbar” Officer Stabbed at Flint, Michigan Airport
Breaking News By Amy Moreno June 21, 2017

FLINT TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Police say an airport officer was stabbed in the neck Wednesday morning at Bishop International Airport in Flint.

The officer was taken to the hospital. Michigan State Police said the officer is in critical condition. However, his condition has been upgraded to stable.

Police identified the injured officer as Lt. Jeff Neville. Bishop International Airport was evacuated and is closed.

NBC News: The Canadian born suspect shouted "Allahu Akbar" before stabbing the officer multiple law enforcement sources say. W/ @anblanx https://t.co/TYSZIgmFQE

— Tom Winter (@Tom_Winter) June 21, 2017

Police said a suspect has been taken into custody. The airport released the following statement:

“All passengers are safe and are being evacuated at this time. Please check with your airline for potential cancellations or delays.”

The FBI is leading the investigation. The Flint City Hall began operating under heightened security in an abundance of caution after the incident.

“Right now we are still awaiting more information about the situation at Bishop Airport this morning,” Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said. “My thoughts and prayers are with all of our law enforcement officers who work to service and protect us each and every day. I want the public to know that several agencies are involved and working to ensure the situation is under control. However, at this time we are taking extra precautions just to be safe.”

Madness In Australia - Accommodating Islam
News Image By Judith Bergman/Gatestone Institute July 06, 2017
Share this article:
During the month of Ramadan alone, the world witnessed 160 Islamic attacks in 29 countries, in which 1627 people were murdered and 1824 injured.

Nevertheless, the dual efforts to deny any links between Islamic terrorism and Islam on the one hand, and the efforts to accommodate Islam to the greatest extent possible on the other, seem to continue unaffected by the realities of Islamic terrorism -- in Australia, as well, which is experiencing its own share of sharia and jihad.

At the end of May, the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) called on the Australian Parliament's Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade to:

"...include a recommendation in its report that disavows the notion that there is any inherent link between Islam and terrorism... The Committee should condemn any politician who refers divisively (expressly or implied) to any religious or ethnic group for the purpose of political gain."

PHAA Chief Executive Michael Moore said that there is no inherent link between any religion and acts of terror:

"When you look at terrorism and the IRA, I don't think many people blamed Christianity for terrorism when clearly there was an overlay. In fact there's nothing ­inherent in Christianity that links to terrorism".

Since when are public health officials qualified to make authoritative statements on the theology of Islam or its linkage to Islamic terrorism?

Muslim psychiatrist Tanveer Ahmed, would disagree. Speaking in June about the Australian media's disproportionate focus on "Islamophobia" he said:

"While terrorism's origins have many factors, Islamic terrorists, as heinous as their acts are, they are often merely doing what the scriptures are telling them."

Colin Kaepernick Just Got BAD NEWS!
Breaking News By TruthFeedNews July 30, 2017

BAD NEWS for Colin Kaepernick.

Earlier rumors that he might get signed by the Baltimore Ravens have become much less likely because they just signed a quarterback and it’s NOT him.

Ravens fans were furious when reports that Kaepernick was being considered surfaced.

One poll showed 48% of Ravens fans planned to boycott if he was signed.

From NBCSports

The Baltimore Ravens have added a quarterback.

No, it’s not Colin Kaepernick.

According to multiple reports, the Ravens are signing former Clemons and Stanford quarterback David Olson, who most recently placed with the Kansas City Phantoms of the Champions Indoor Football League. It was first reported by Damond Talbot of DraftDiamonds.com.

The Ravens found themselves in need of another quarterback with Joe Flacco expected to miss time with a disc issue in his back.

According to a new report, the name Muhammad just overtook William in the top 10 most popular baby name in England.

Timeinc.net reported: Muhammad cracked the top 10 list of the most popular baby names in England and Wales, surpassing William, James, Daniel, and other historically common names in the country, according to data from the U.K.’s national statistics agency.

Baby names can give a glimpse of pop culture influences and the changing demographics of a nation. In this case, it shows diversity within the 696,271 live births in England and Wales last year. The name has moved from 43rd to 8th in one decade.

Over the years, some reports have argued that if you were to look at all the different spellings of Muhammad than it would actually be the most popular name. And that’s true; There are numerous spellings of Muhammad, including “Mohammed” and “Mohammad,” in the top 100 list.

ISIS Now Claims Responsibility For Mass Shooting Says That Las Vegas Shooter Was Recent Convert To Islam
“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the terror group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the US-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East. “The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added, according to Reuters.


ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Las Vegas rampage, saying without offering evidence that the shooter had converted to Islam a few months ago, according to reports.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is no surprise, and I am also guessing that not only was the shooter a convert to Islam, that he was also associated with ANTIFA. ISIS has no history of making completely false claims about associations to global terror attacks, so there is no reason to doubt this breaking development. NTEB will keep you updated as story develops.

“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the terror group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the US-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.
ISIS claims responsibility for Las Vegas shooting massacre:

“The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added, according to Reuters.

The group’s Aamaq news agency released two brief statements hours after the shooting at a country music concert that killed at least 50 people and wounded at least 400. It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
ISIS did not name the suspected shooter, but said he had “executed the operation in response to calls to target countries of the coalition” battling the extremist group in Iraq and Syria.

Police have identified the shooter as Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, and have said he killed himself after the shooting. Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said authorities believe it was a “lone wolf” attack, and the U.S. Homeland Security Department said there was no “specific credible threat” involving other public venues in the U.S.

The IS group often claims attacks by individuals inspired by its message but with no known links to the group. However, it is not known to have claimed any attacks that were not at least loosely linked to it.

Before Sunday, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history took place in June 2016, when a gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people. The gunman, Omar Mateen, had pledged allegiance to IS and it claimed the attack. source

The Antichrist as a Muslim?
January 17, 2018

This report is available as a free eBook from www.wayoflife.org.

There is a small movement today that sees the Antichrist as a Muslim who will arise from the Muslim nations.

The chief proponent and promoter of this view is Joel Richardson (b. 1971), author of Islamic Antichrist, Mideast Beast, and other books and video presentations.

Richardson has extremely dangerous associates, including Glenn Beck, who holds to the false gospel of Mormonism and yet has promoted Richardson’s teaching heavily. Beck has published Richardson’s “History of the Caliphate” and “The Emerging Leftist-Islamist Revolutionary Alliance,” and Richardson appeared in Beck’s video Rumors of War.

Even if Richardson is personally sound in the Christian faith, which we do not know, he is acting in open disobedience to God’s commands to separate from error (e.g., Romans 16:17; 1 Corinthians 15:33; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 4:14; 2 Timothy 3:5; 2 John 8-11). Richardson’s association with Beck is only one example of this disobedience.

Richardson told one reporter, “I do not agree with various tenets of Mormon theology,” but he went on to say, “Glenn Beck is one of the most genuinely prophetic voices to have emerged in this nation in many years” (“Together at Last: Joel Richardson and Glenn Beck,” Feb. 18, 2011, Barthsnotes.com).

That statement alone would inform me that Mr. Richardson is the blind leading the blind. (See “Beck’s Restoring Love Program,” July 30, 2012, www.wayoflife.org.)

We have not been able to find out exactly what Richardson’s doctrinal position is or what church he attends, but he embraces the heresy of Pentecostal prophesying. On the talk show It’s Supernatural, Sid Roth declared that Richardson is “hand-picked literally by God to give revelation of the end time.” In his reply, Richardson agreed. He told of how that “a prophetess” prophesied over his wife-to-be and said, “Your husband, you will marry someone that will have significant insight into the end times, and he’ll release new prophetic understanding concerning the end times to the church and to the world.” Richardson then claimed that he and his wife were in a meeting when the speaker shared “a prophetic word” and called them out by name and “spoke things to us that no man could know ... he said that the Lord was gonna bring me into a season of divine revelation, which I knew intuitively was tied into this word about understanding the end times” (“Who Is Joel Richardson, Beck’s End Time Prophet,” Feb. 17, 2011, Mediamatters.org).

This is gross heresy. Instead of renouncing the female prophetess and the public soothsaying, Richardson embraces it and uses it to authenticate his ministry.

Friends, we would urge you in the most forceful way to be careful about what you read. God’s people should be studious, but you must know who an author is and what he believes and what his biases might be. God’s Word warns us to stay away from men that are unsound. “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them” (Ro. 16:17).

In the age of the Internet, it is a simple matter to find some basic information about an author. To fail to do this is very dangerous. The previous information about Richardson was obtained in a very short time.

Knowing these things about Richardson, I would never read him for personal profit. The reason that I have made the effort to read some of his works is to critique them biblically and to sound a warning to those who have been confused by his teaching.

And if you are not a serious Bible student with a good Bible education and a serious grasp of Bible doctrine; if you are “unskiful in the word of righteousness” and do not have your “senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Hebrews 5:12-14); then you aren’t prepared to browse the Internet and use the books in a typical Christian bookstore safely. If you are the “babe” described in Hebrews 5, you can easily be “tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness” (Ephesians 4:14).

The Internet is a two-edged sword. On one side it has made it possible for sound Bible teaching to be disseminated to an extent previously unprecedented, but on the other side it has made it possible for heretics to disseminate their teachings to anyone with a laptop or tablet or smart phone.

To be able to use Christian writings effectively and safely, you must first become skillful in God’s Word and adept in spiritual and doctrinal discernment.

I would also warn that when it is difficult to find information about a speaker or author, such as his testimony of salvation, church affiliation, and doctrinal beliefs, that should be a loud warning in itself. This is the case with Joel Richardson. His web site gives no information along this line. We are told that he “travels globally teaching on the gospel,” but we are not told what gospel. Compare 2 Corinthians 11:1-4. Why doesn’t he have the gospel on his web site? Why doesn’t he tell us what church he attends and what he believes? Before I will allow a man to speak to me on Bible prophecy, I must know these things.

True Bible believers know that they are pilgrims in a dark world and that they have an enemy who wants to deceive them, and they walk in great caution. “The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going” (Proverbs 14:15).

An almost endless number of things could be said on this issue, because Bible prophecy itself is a very large matter and Richardson has said and written many things. We have no intention of writing a comprehensive refutation of all of his teaching, but following are some fundamental reasons why we reject his position and why we warn God’s people to stay away from it:

1. The Muslim Antichrist position feeds on ignorance.

Even Joel Richardson, its chief proponent, says,

“I find myself presented with the interesting challenge of introducing much of the readership to more than one subject that most people are largely uninformed of. Certainly most people have some vague ideas about what the Bible says about the “last-days” – the difficult times that will encompass the earth, the plagues, the ecological disasters, the eventual return of Jesus. But even many Christians – those who read the Bible regularly – are not exactly sure what they believe about many of the specifics of the last-days. And if it can be said that ignorance of biblical eschatology is common, then consider how many people – particularly in the West – have any knowledge at all about what Islam teaches about the Last-days” (Will Islam Be Our Future?, chapter one).

Richardson is absolutely correct about the widespread ignorance. While he would not say that he is misusing this ignorance in order to promote false doctrine, that is exactly what we believe he is doing, whether wittingly or unwittingly.

It is the pastors of Bible-believing churches who are guilty in this matter, because they are the ones who have not properly educated the people. Even children in Sunday School should have a basic understanding of what the Bible says about the future. And God’s people should be educated about Islam because it is a major influence in the world today.

For such education, we suggest the following resources from www.wayoflife.org:

Understanding Bible Prophecy (an Advanced Bible Studies Series course)

The Future According to the Bible (a thorough study of Bible prophecy)

The Bible and Islam (available in print or as a free eBook)

2. The Muslim Antichrist position leans heavily on a study of current history and Muslim prophecy, instead of being developed directly from a right interpretation of the Bible prophecies themselves.

Joel Richardson says, “This book is first and foremost a study of Islamic eschatology” (Will Islam Be Our Future?, chapter one).

This is a major problem. Islamic eschatology is a hodgepodge of doctrine. Islamic has no one authoritative, clear doctrine of eschatology. There is a general belief in the coming of a Mahdi (God-guided one), but beyond that there are great differences in eschatology among the major branches of Islam.

In chapter four of Will Islam Be Our Future?, Richard lists the following 21 Islamic teachings about the Mahdi:

- The Mahdi is Islam’s primary messiah figure.

- He will be a descendant of Muhammad and will bear Muhammad’s name (Muhammad bin Abdullah).

- He will be a very devout Muslim.

- He will be an unparalleled spiritual, political and military world leader.

- He will emerge after a period of great turmoil and suffering upon the earth.

- He will establish justice and righteousness throughout the world and eradicate tyranny and oppression.

- He will be the Caliph and Imam (vice-regent and leader) of Muslims worldwide.

- He will lead a world revolution and establish a new world order.

- He will lead military action against all those who oppose him.

- He will invade many countries.

- He will make a seven year peace treaty with a Jew of priestly lineage.

- He will conquer Israel for Islam and lead the “faithful Muslims” in a final slaughter/battle against Jews.

- He will establish the new Islamic world headquarters from Jerusalem.

- He will rule for seven years (possibly as much as eight or nine).

- He will cause Islam to be the only religion practiced on the earth.

- He will appear riding a white horse (possibly symbolic).

- He will discover some previously undiscovered biblical manuscripts that he will use to argue with the Jews and cause some Jews to convert to Islam.

- He will also re-discover the Ark of the Covenant from the Sea of Galilee, which he will bring to Jerusalem.

- He will have supernatural power from Allah over the wind and the rain and crops.

- He will possess and distribute enormous amounts of wealth.

- He will be loved by all the people of the earth.

This list appears to be a clear, authoritative Islamic doctrine of the end times, but it is a myth. There is no consensus within Islam about most of these points. And the original language upon which these points are established is often vague in the extreme.

In reality, there is very little that can be presented as a solid, established Islamic doctrine of eschatology.

While it might be interesting to study Islamic beliefs about the end times, to use such a hodgepodge to interpret Scripture in any way whatsoever is wrongheaded in the extreme.

Richardson says, “So in conclusion, we see that several of the most unique and distinguishing aspects of the biblical Antichrist’s person, mission and actions are matched to quite an amazing degree by the descriptions of the Mahdi as found in the Islamic traditions. And now, even further, we see that Muslim scholars actually apply Bible verses about the Antichrist to their awaited savior, the Mahdi. This must be seen as quite ironic, if not entirely prophetic” (Will Islam Be Our Future?, chapter five).

We could not disagree with this statement more fervently. The fact that some Muslims are looking for a “Mahdi” and the fact that some are even applying the Bible’s teaching about the Antichrist to the Mahdi amount to nothing of substance. It is most certainly not “prophetic.”

3. The prophecies in Daniel are clear on the fact that the Antichrist will arise from the ancient Roman Empire, and the efforts to interpret these prophecies in a manner different from traditional dispensationalism have been entirely unsuccessful.

First, the chronology of the image in Daniel 2 points to the Roman Empire. The four kingdoms of Daniel 2 follow one another chronologically. The image is one, and each subsequent aspect connects with the previous one. We are specifically told the identity of the first three kingdoms (Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece), and they followed one another chronologically. The reasonable conclusion is that the fourth kingdom is the Roman Empire, since it conquered Greece.

Gold Head: Babylonian Empire (626 BC - 539 BC)

Silver Chest/Arms: Medo-Persian Empire (539 BC - 330 BC)

Bronze Belly and Thighs: Grecian Empire (330 BC - 63 BC)

Iron Legs: Roman Empire (conquered Greece in 63 BC)

The earliest Muslim empires were founded in the eighth and ninth centuries AD, a millennium after the fall of the Grecian kingdoms to Rome. As for the Ottoman Empire, it was founded by Osman I in the early 1300s AD, nearly 1,400 years after Grecian kingdoms fell.

It is important to understand that Daniel 2 pertains to Gentile kingdoms that had direct dealings with the nation Israel. Babylon conquered Israel and destroyed the first temple. Persia returned Israel to the land and allowed the building of the second temple. The Greeks persecuted Israel (e.g., Antiochus Epiphanes). Rome ruled Israel and destroyed the second temple. Some of the Muslim empires, including the Ottoman, ruled “Palestine” and had dealings with the Jewish people, but Israel as a nation in the land had ceased to exist before Islam arose.

Second, the Antichrist is depicted as rising out of a revived Roman Empire in Daniel 7:19-20. The fourth beast corresponds to the fourth kingdom of Daniel 2, and the Antichrist will arise after the 10 kings of an end-time Roman Empire. The 10 horns of Daniel 7 correspond to the 10 toes of Daniel 2, signifying 10 kings or rulers in the end times.

Third, in the prophecy of the 70 Weeks, Daniel identifies the Antichrist as the prince of the people that “shall destroy the city and the sanctuary” (Da. 9:26). This “people” was the Romans, who in AD 70 destroyed Jerusalem and the Jewish temple under the leadership of Titus, who soon became the Roman emperor. This key prophecy tells us that the Antichrist will arise from Europe and the old Roman Empire and not from a Muslim kingdom. Though the Muslims captured Jerusalem in 637 from the Byzantines, they never destroyed a Jewish temple. It had ceased to exist more than 550 years earlier.

The Roman Empire fits the prophecy of Daniel perfectly. It is the kingdom that conquered Greece, was divided into two major portions (the two legs of Daniel 2), and it is the kingdom that continues until the time of the Antichrist. It has continued in the Holy Roman Empire and in modern Europe.

Joel Richardson, in Mideast Beast, gives the following reasons for rejecting Rome as the fourth kingdom of Daniel’s prophecies:

Richardson says the Roman Empire did not conquer all portions of the land holdings of the previous empires (Babylon, Persia, Greece). “Although the Roman Empire did conquer portions of the land holdings of the other empires, it clearly did not conquer all of them, not even a majority of them” (Richardson, p. 59).

Answer: This is a non-issue. The Bible doesn’t say the fourth empire would conquer every part of the territory of the former empires, only that it would conquer and replace those empires, which it did. In fact, the Roman Empire occupied much of the territory occupied by Babylon, Greece, and Medo-Persia, plus far more territory toward the west than they ever occupied.

Richardson claims that the Roman Empire was not a crushing empire as described in Daniel 2:40; 7:7, 23. He says, “Rather than being a crushing force, the Roman Empire was often a positive influence to its conquered peoples. ... The Islamic Caliphat absolutely crushed all of the Babylonian, MedoPersian, and Greek Empires” (Richardson, Mideast Beast, pp. 60, 76).

Answer: This depiction of Rome is skewed. Rome was somewhat benevolent to people who submitted to her, but she was incredibly brutal toward those who resisted. Consider Rome’s treatment of Israel during the first and second Roman-Jewish wars. Rome’s cities and towns were ruined. Her temple was destroyed. Her religion was outlawed. Millions of Jews were killed and sold into slavery. Her wealth was robbed and used to build the Coliseum in Rome. Her capital city was razed and an idolatrous Roman city built over its ruins. The very name of her capital city was changed to the name of a Roman emperor, and the name of her country was changed to Palestina Syria. Rome did this type of thing to many people, including the Greeks and the Brits and various German tribes. To say that Rome wasn’t “a crushing force” is nonsense.

Richardson says that the Roman Empire does not fit the two divisions signified by the legs. He writes, “There was the Eastern Empire with its capital in Constantinople and the Western Empire with its capital in Rome. Two legs you see. All right. But wait a minute! To begin with, the division occurs before you get to the iron! The two legs begin under the copper, unless this image was a freak. ... So you see, you cannot do anything with these two legs” (Geoffrey King, cited by Richardson, Mideast Beast, p. 71).

Answer: This error is caused by trying to press every detail of the statue. It is the same error that is made by those who try to press all details of parables. These things are given to emphasize one particular point. The significance of the two legs is simply that the fourth empire would have two major divisions, and that was certainly true of the Roman Empire.

Richardson says the Roman legions that destroyed Jerusalem were composed of a mixed multitude, including many men from the Middle East.

Answer: While this is true, it is meaningless, since the legions were Roman legions, led by Romans and controlled by Rome. The head of the legions, Titus, became an emperor soon thereafter and the artifacts taken from the temple, together with Jewish captives, were paraded through the streets of Rome in the Triumph of Vespasian and Titus as a sign of Rome’s power. The Arch of Titus was built in Rome to commemorate Rome’s destruction of Jerusalem. It was Rome that minted the coins celebrating the defeat of Israel. The words Ivdaea Capta (“Judea has been conquered”) or Ivdaea Devicta (“Judea has been defeated”) were engraved around the rim. Israel was usually depicted as a weeping woman sitting by a palm tree with her hands tied. On some coins she is guarded by the Roman emperor clothed in his military gear and striking a victory pose. The coins continued to be issued by two other emperors (Vespasian’s sons) until AD 96. Another Roman coin depicted the execution of the Jewish revolt leader, Simon son of Giora, who was taken to Rome, publicly displayed, then executed. The coin features the Roman emperor Vespasian’s head on one side and a triumphal Roman procession on the other, with Vespasian standing in a four-horse chariot and Simon being led to his death. It was Rome that gave Roman names to Jerusalem and Judea.

It was the Roman Empire headquartered in Europe that destroyed Israel in fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy, not the Ottoman Empire or any other Islamic kingdom.

4. The Muslim Antichrist position is frequently based on the more obscure prophecies.

A proper interpretation of the Bible uses the clearest passages of Scripture to interpret the less clear, but false teachers typically reverse this methodology. They use the more obscure to “explain” the clear.

This is what Richardson does. He will use prophecies such as Revelation 17:10, which is difficult to interpret by any “scheme” and possibly will not be perfectly clear until its fulfillment (as is the case with many prophecies), to build his doctrine of the Ottoman Empire as Daniel’s fourth kingdom.

One preacher wrote to me as follow:

“I have one question, which is how would Revelation 17:10-11 be interpreted? ‘And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.’ One of the things I gleaned from your book was about the Anti-christ being called ‘The Assyrian’ and Assyria was also a world empire based in Turkey, north of Israel. For myself, I understand the five are fallen world kingdoms as: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome (the world kingdom that is, at the time of John). Then Richardson proposes that the other that is not yet come is the Ottoman Empire. So the beast that is the eighth, he is of the seventh (Ottoman).”

I replied,

“As for Revelation 17:10-11, that is somewhat obscure and not clear cut, in my estimation. There are lots of different views. Some things in prophecy cannot be interpreted with exactness until the time of the fulfillment. That particular one will be clear in the Tribulation. A very important principle of interpretation is that you base doctrine on the clear teaching of Scripture, not on the less clear. There are things ‘hard to be understood,’ Peter said (2 Pe. 3:16), and though we seek to understand everything in Scripture, we don’t use the ‘hard to be understood’ to overthrow the clearer, more easy to be understood Scriptures. A false teacher will always turn this principle on its head. I think that is exactly what Richardson has done with his Muslim empire thing.”

5. The Antichrist will find a solution to the age-old animosity between Israel and the Muslims, but the Bible does not say where the Muslims might fit into these things.

The Bible doesn’t tell us exactly where the Muslims might fit into the end times, and it is dangerous to try to fill in the Bible’s silence with human speculation. “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29).

We do know that the Antichrist will operate in the wisdom and power of the devil (Revelation 13:2, 4), and since the world’s false religions are creations of the devil and since he operates in “the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2), he will have no problem manipulating the religions and their adherents as he pleases when God gives him permission to do so.

We know that at the beginning of his reign, the Antichrist will be acclaimed as a great problem solver and a man who will bring peace to earth. We know that the Antichrist will make a seven-year peace covenant “with many” in Israel at the beginning of his reign (Daniel 9:27). He is depicted as coming on the scene on a white horse and an empty bow (Revelation 6). This signifies that the Antichrist will have the capability to make war but initially he will come as a man of peace. Five times in Daniel the Antichrist is called a liar and a flatterer (Da. 11:21, 23, 27, 32, 34). Daniel says by peace he will destroy many (Da. 8:25).

We know that the Antichrist will make it possible for the third Jewish temple to be built. We see the temple being measured in Revelation 11 at the beginning of the ministry of the two prophets who will preach in Jerusalem for three and a half years (Revelation 11:7). This is the first half of the Antichrist’s seven-year peace covenant. Daniel 9:27 says he will break the covenant at the mid-point of the seven years, and set up the abomination of desolation. Other prophecies fill in the details of this event. Christ taught that this marks the Antichrist’s desecration of the temple (Matthew 24:15). Paul taught that this is when the Antichrist will set himself up as God (2 Thessalonians 2:4). At this point, the Antichrist will require that all people worship him on pain of death and will take control of the world economy toward that end (Revelation 13:15-17).

Though it is not possible that the Jews would accept a Muslim antichrist or a Muslim prophet, there could be a Muslim messiah of some sort who will be associated with the Antichrist in some way. Again, the Bible simply does not speak to this issue.

Who knows, Islam might effectively be destroyed before then or at that time. There could be a nuclear bombing of Mecca and Medina and an effectual beheading of the religion. I’m not saying that will happen. I’m saying that the Bible is silent on the matter of Islam and the end times.

The bottom line is that there are many details of end-time events that are not spelled out in Bible prophecy, and the wise will be content with the light that we have and not speculate beyond this, and they will not allow anyone’s extra-biblical speculation to become an authority in their lives.
