Iran Sends Warships to Yemen, Khamenei Threatens Saudis
April 9, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – While the Obama administration continues to play pretend diplomacy with the Iranian terror state, his negotiating partner, has moved two warships into the Red Sea, just off the coast of Yemen. It’s difficult to view this act as anything other than a signal that Iran intends to completely dominate the failed state, now over-run with Iranian backed Houthi fighters. Yemen was only a few months ago being touted as an example of Team O’s successful foreign policy.
The ignominy of the United Sates being run out of the country by the rag-tag Houthi militia apparently hasn’t been lost on our former ally, Saudi Arabia, which for weeks now has been conducting bombing raids against rebel strongholds there.
Over the last month, Iran has delivered nearly 200 tons of military hardware to its Houthi proxy army and the American response has been, to put it charitably, tepid.
On the diplomatic front, while the ink was still drying on the American-Iranian draft agreement regarding the country’s nuclear weapons program, its chief negotiator, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif blasted the administration as a pack of liars, while making it clear that Iran will never allow inspections of the type necessary
Additionally the Fars News Agency today published a less than veiled threat made by Ayatollah Khamenei to the Saudis, warning them that their actions in Yemen will have consequences.
"The Saudis will definitely be struck back in this issue and their nose will be rubbed against the ground (they will be defeated)," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of Iranians in Tehran on Thursday. "This action (of the Saudis) is not acceptable in the region and I warn that they will certainly lose interests," he added.

The long term strategic damage Team Obama has done to our Middle East policies is breathtaking; allowing Iran to control Yemen which is on Saudi Arabia’s southern border is beyond inexplicable.[Read More]
Why Is Team Obama Allowing Highly Suspect Foreign Islamists To Enter The U.S.?
April 7, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – In a May 2014 communication to Jeh Johnson, Sect. DHS, Sen. Charles Grassley [R, IA] he asked for clarification on the Obama Administration’s lackadaisical attitude regarding admitting Islamist foreign nations to the United States.
“My office recently received copies of disturbing internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) e-mails regarding the admittance of individuals into the United States with potential ties to terrorism.”
The inquiry regarded, “an upcoming flight into the U.S. Allegedly, the individual was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a “close associate” of a supporter of “Hamas, Hizbollah, and (Palestinian) Islamic Jihad.” According to the same e-mail, the individual had been in secondary inspection “several dozen times of the past several years,” but had not had a secondary inspection since 2010.”
It seems that the individual in question is of a litigious nature and had sued the CBP National Targeting Center [NTC] twice. As a result, the Obama administration caved [or simply used it as an excuse, since there are more than enough federal attorneys to conduct such routine matters…and they are all on salary] and declared that the party in question is, “…one of the several hands off passengers nationwide. . . . Apparently his records were removed in December 2010 and the DHS Secretary was involved in the matter.”
Grassley, obviously piqued at the apparent national security breach and coerced action on the part of the government stated, “I’m puzzled how someone could be a member of the Muslim Brotherhood an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, be an associate of [redacted], say that the US is staging car bombings in Iraq and that [it] is ok for men to beat their wives, question who was behind the 9/11 attacks, and be afforded the luxury of a visitor visa and de-watchlisted.”
The Senator then directed a series of questions to the DHS Secty none of which have been satisfactorily answered as of this writing, still another example of the “most transparent administration in history” concealing vital national security information from Congress.

Muslims Attack Copts Because of Proposed Church Renovation
By RAYMOND IBRAHIM, Islam Translated
April 6, 2015 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Although Coptic Christians in the village of Gala’, Samalout district, Upper Egypt, had received all the proper permits and legal paperwork to renovate their dilapidated Virgin Mary Church, some Muslims in the village will not have it.
Local police first invited the Muslim leaders who refused to see the church building renovated to a meeting with Coptic elders. The Muslims insisted that the Copts must first accept a number of discriminatory restrictions, including that the building look like a house not a church—certainly no crosses visible anywhere on the building’s exterior—and its entrance must be a narrow door on the side, not at the front of the building which faces the street.

Former Kenyan Ambassador Gration Pushes Myth That Terrorism Is Driven By Lack Of Economic Opportunity
April 6, 2015 – San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Upon reading the April 3 Time Magazine article written by the former ambassador to Kenya, Scott Gration [nominated by President Obama and then serving only 13 months on assignment, allegedly fired by then Secty of State Clinton over the same personal email issues which continue to plague her. Leaked, internal State Dept. documents reportedly claim that Gration was “ineffective,” “divisive” and “had lost the respect and confidence of his staff”] it’s easy to understand why he was one of Obama top echelon campaign advisors on military issues…he’s politically naïve at best and apparently knows little about the dynamics of the global Islamic jihad, despite having served meritoriously in Iraq.
Kenya is overwhelmingly a Christian nation ; over 80% of the population identifies with one of the faith’s major sects. Since 2011, the country has been under assault by the Islamic terror group Al-Shabaab. We are sure it’s just an odd coincidence that all of this began in the time frame during which Gration served as ambassador.
It seems that Gration’s piece was timed to blunt some of the impact of Al-Shabaab’s April 2 attack on Garissa University College , which killed nearly 150, the worst terror attack in the nation’s history. Though authored under Gration’s byline, the copy could just as well have been written by the Kenyan Tourist Authority.
“Kenya is beginning to deal with the underlying enablers of terrorism in the country. While it still has a long way to go, Kenya has begun to crack down on corruption…By focusing on economic delivery though an integrated strategy and plan, the society will be transformed, and terrorists will lose their foothold in the region.

What the former ambassador fails to mention is that this level of Islamic mayhem has not been uncommon over the last 4 years, nor was it the most horrific display of barbarism, a relative term when dealing with Al-Shabaab. On that aspect, please refer to What The Media Refuses To Print - "Jihadist Ritual Murder and Mutilation at the Mall,” the article contains a partial description of what was done to the poor unfortunates at the mall and a link to another document which goes into further detail. For the uninitiated in these matters we urge extreme CAUTION, the description therein is so graphically monstrous it will likely turn your stomach.[Read More]
