August 31, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On the heels of two major "reports" alleging widespread religious bigotry against American Muslims [one released in June by CAIR in conjunction with U.C. Berkeley's Center for Race and Gender, the other released this week by the Center for American Progress, see, Anti-American Hate Factory - Center For American Progress - In Bed With The Jihadists] a group of Muslims took part in what appears to be a mini-riot at New York's Playland Amusement Park yesterday.
The ensuing confrontation - involving a total of as many as 40 people - resulted in the arrest of 15, all of whom seem to have been part of a large event organized by the Muslim American Society, NY [source, Police arrest 15 at Playland in dispute over Muslim headwear http://www.lohud.com/article/20110830/NEWS02/110830004/Police-arrest-15-Playland-dispute-over-Muslim-headwear?odyssey=mod|breaking|text|Frontpage].
Two park rangers were reportedly injured.
The melee broke out when several Hijab wearing Muslim women were told that any sort of headgear had to be removed in the interest of safety before they could board the rides.
August 29, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A bevy of cartoon character propagandists - Wajahat Ali, Eli Clifton, Matthew Duss, Lee Fang , Scott Keyes and Faiz Shakir - have just authored a "study" which neatly falls into lockstep with the efforts being exerted by Muslim Brotherhood front groups to incrementally Islamize the West.
Published by the Center for American progress [an organization led by lefty zealot John Podesta and reportedly heavily funded by George Soros - a convicted felon [see, Insider trading conviction of Soros is upheld, http://www.nytimes.com/2006/06/14/business/worldbusiness/14iht-soros.1974397.html] on the eve of the 10th anniversary of nation's worst Muslim terrorist attack, the document appears to be a fevered response to the significant traction being gained by the American Laws for American Courts movement which seeks to ban the influence of foreign legal concepts [including Shari'a] on American jurisprudence.
Intensive examination of current state court opinions [see, Shariah in American Courts], have revealed numerous occurrences where Shari'a has already established inroads into U.S. legal decisions - hence the need for such legislation.
So what is Shari'a?
If you disregard the tired apologetics offered in its defense either by know-it-nothing [often subsidized] talking heads or professional takiyya artists [aka Muslim liars], Shari'a [Islamic law] is a seditious ideology of world domination secured through jihad. It relies, as an enforcement mechanism on a corpus of 10th century laws [drawn from the Qur'an, its supporting documents and seminal Islamic jurisprudence - which span both Shia and Sunni Islam and all major Islamic legal schools - for its authority] codifying brutality, misogyny, homophobia, slavery, anti-Semitism and barbarities too numerous to mention.
August 25, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Iranian Armed Forces' Headquarters today issued a statement saying that the ongoing revolutions and popular uprisings in the region have created the ideal situation for Muslims to finally clinch a victory over the Zionist regime and to free the holy Quds (Jerusalem) from the Zionist "occupation."
The statement urged Muslims to turn out for a massive rally to support the International Quds Day on Friday, reminding them that the rallies are intended to show that the Zionist regime of Israel is sinking in the gulf of Islamic awakening and popular anti-Zionist uprisings.
The International Quds Day was initiated by Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic regime in Iran, and is observed on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan, when Muslims all over the world hold rallies in support of the Palestinian resistance against what Khomeini commonly referred to as "the illegitimate Israeli regime occupying Palestine."
The Iranian Armed Forces Headquarters also said that the serial collapse of the U.S.- and Zionist-backed dictatorial regimes created the potential for the formation of a comprehensive Muslim front against Zionism.
August 24, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Now that Team Obama has gotten apparently what it wanted, the relatively finger-print free destruction of Muammar Gaddafi's brutal dictatorship, he will now have to deal with the consequences of a broken country with advanced weapons, ripe for plundering by Islamists dedicated to destruction of the West.
In April, during Congressional testimony, General Carter F. Ham, Commander of the U.S. Africa Command stated that Libya had as many as 20,000 shoulder fired SAMs which at the time posed a major threat to NATO war planes.
"...threats from Gadhafi's mobile surface-to-air missile systems have hampered efforts to use the AC-130 and A-10 aircraft for close air support for friendly ground forces. Ham said those conditions, which include as many as 20,000 shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles, contributed to the stalemate..." [source, Lolita C. Baldor, Associated Press, General says US may consider sending troops into Libya as part of any international force, http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=13318869]
August 23, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The decline and fall of the American empire is unfolding and will usher in a new world order that doesn't include the United States, Iran now believes.
With the fiasco in Congress over the debt crisis and the financial and economic turmoil plaguing America, the time is ripe for the "Great Satan" to be displaced, according to the Iranian website Gerdab.ir, which is run by the Revolutionary Guards.
"While the U.S. is entering into a catastrophic financial and economic phase," says Brig. Gen. Masoud Jazayeri in a speech to the Guards' ground forces, "Iran can, with a serious offensive, emerge economically and financially."
Jazayeri, the deputy head of Iran's Joint Chiefs of Staff, says that while the U.S. has employed all its might in trying to destroy the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Middle East, the region where the "global tyrants focus on the most, is going through transitions whose foundations are rooted in the discipline of the Islamic revolution; in this strategic area of the world, America is regarded all around as the most hated government and country."
August 23, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - According to various sources, including the Iranian News Service [FARS], Majid Jamali-Fashi, apparently a member of the Iranian resistance movement, has pleaded guilty to the killing of top nuke scientist Massoud Ali Mohammadi during January of last year.
Mohammedi's vehicle was bombed while on the way to his laboratory.
Two other high level targets [Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani and Majid Shahriyari ] were attacked in a similar manner during November 2010, claiming the life of Shahriyari.
Davani was wounded but has since recovered. He was appointed to the directorship of Iran's nuclear weapons program on February 7, 2011 and at the same time declared Iran's Vice President by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Islamic theocracy's titular head of state.
August 22, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, an unindicted coconspirator in the nation's largest and most successful prosecution of domestic Hamas funding, is once again taking on the Electrolux Corp., based [stateside] in Minnesota.
The company employs approximately 150 Muslim workers, whom CAIR has been taking advantage of in order to foment the type of civilizational/cultural jihad proposed by the Muslim Brotherhood and its numerous front groups. [see, document General Strategic Goal For The Group In North America]
CAIR is alleging that the employer is not making reasonable accommodation for Muslims to observe Ramadan. This despite an already extant EEOC mediated settlement of a similar complaint last year. [see, CAIR Strong Arms Electrolux In Minnesota]
Many of Electrolux' Muslim workers are "political refugees" who were permitted to immigrate to the United States from Somalia, a key al-Qaeda stronghold, under an ill-considered State Dept. program which has been roundly criticized.
August 22, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On August 15, the California State Senate Appropriations Committee, reacting to the huge outpouring of opposition by parents, quietly placed AB 499, the Gardasil mandate, on its suspense file. The official Committee analysis claimed excessive costs to the state of anywhere from $350-$500 per 3 shot series, to approximately 923,000 students.
This is not the end of this bill. It, like dozens of others, costly to the taxpayer, was placed on suspense that day in order to give the committee time to reconsider how to make the costs more palatable to the taxpayer.
All the Suspense File bills will be heard on August 25. This hearing, according to the Appropriations Committee spokesperson, is closed to testimony or witnesses. Should AB 499 be approved at this hearing it will, most likely, move quickly to the full senate where it needs only a majority vote, then be sent to Governor Brown for his signature.
All citizens should be put on alert to prevent this from happening.
August 16, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As part of its continuing campaign of cultural jihad, CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations - a discredited organization named as an unindicted co-conspirator in U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation, the U.S.' most successful prosectution of domestic funding of Hamas - has been dogging Florida Congressmen Allen West since at least February of this year when Florida CAIR operative Nezar Hamze was told by West at a town hall meeting "Don't try to blow sunshine up my butt..." after West recounted a string of atrocities perpetrated by Mohammed.
The exchange took place at a town hall meeting during which Hamze attempted to propagandize and cast West as an Islamophobe.
The latest chapter in this saga of confrontation took place recently upon the revelation [see, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tT58uasgyok] that in response to a pestering letter from Hamze, West replied in writing, with the simple statement, "NUTS."
August 16, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Troubling new evidence possibly linking Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American citizen believed to be living in Yemen, with the September 11 terror attacks, is under scrutiny by the House Homeland Security Committee.
Detailing these new concerns, a letter sent [May 26, 2011] to AG Holder by the Committee's Chairman, Peter King [R-NY] states in part:
"With the years of hindsight into al-Awlaki's growing status within al Qaeda, including his involvement in the Christmas Day 2009 attack, there exists the critical need to reexamine the facts surrounding al-Awlaki and the 9/11 attacks. For instance, The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States...suspected that al-Awlaki tasked Jordanian national Eyad al-Rababah in May 2001 to assist two 9/11 hijackers in finding an apartment. Al-Rababah eventually transported four of the hijackers from Northern Virginia to Connecticut and then Paterson, New Jersey, where they met four others. That group formed the core of the conspiracy to prepare and collaborate for the 9/11 attacks..."
August 15, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Terrorists, rogue states, China or Russia could launch an electro-magnetic pulse attack that would collapse critical civilian infrastructures in the United States, warn two congressional commissions, the EMP Commission and the Strategic Posture Commission.
A single crude nuclear weapon delivered by an unsophisticated missile could destroy electric power, telecommunications, transportation, banking and finance, food and water across the continental United States.
Without these systems, our modern society would be thrown back into the 18th century.
Think of it. No cell phones, IPads, computers, IPods ? virtually every device that powers life as we know it ? would be destroyed. Planes, trains, vehicles of all stripes ? all would cease to function, their electrical systems fried.
August 12, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Thomas Bruning, the general secretrary of the Netherlands Union of Journalists (NVJ), is rather pessimististic about press freedom in Turkey. In March alone, eight journalists were arrested in Turkey. Two prominent investigative journalists, namely Ahmed Sik and Nedim Sener, were among them. Some 60 Turkish journalists are in prison now, just because of what they wrote or on fake charges. "In view of the persecution and intimidation of journalists and the lack of transparency questions can be raised about the state of Turkish democracy," Bruning wrote in April (2011). "In a country that calls itself democratic and wants to join the European Union, free reporting is essential. Press freedom is democracy's greatest good."
Since Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyib Erdogan came to power in 2002 Turkey gradually moved away from its traditional secularism. Turkey's new rulers belong to the Justice and Development Party (AKP), which initially presented itself as a moderate and pro-Western Muslim party ? even though it was unprecedented for prime minister of Turkey to have a veiled wife. Emine Erdogan is a woman who proudly wears the Islamic headscarf calling on other women to follow her example. The AKP no longer is as moderate as it initially claimed to be. It was under Erdogan that Turkey opened a new page with Iran and its Muslim fundamentalist dictators who deny the Holocaust. Nationals from neighboring Muslim countries (notably Iran, Iraq and Syria) no longer need a visa to enter Turkey. Erdogan's new enemy now is Israel, pro-Iranian Hamas and Hezbollah, though, are seen as new allies. As the "Jerusalem Post" noted recently, "Erdogan's anti-Israel rhetoric cannot be seen in isolation from his oppressive policies at home and his pursuit of Islamist allies."
August 5, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Iran has the technological ability to target any point on the planet with an intercontinental ballistic missile should it choose to, according to Brig. Gen. Seyyed Mehdi Farahi of the Revolutionary Guards Corps, who is the director of the Iranian air and space industries.
A recent editorial in the Iranian Keyhan newspaper, the mouthpiece of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, reports on Iran's ballistic missile technology with a headline "Iran Now Exports Ballistic Missiles." [source, Kayhan News, http://www.kayhannews.ir/900511/2.htm#other202]
In the report the general brags about Iran's military might and its ability to simultaneously launch 14 or more rockets with extreme precision. He says that the export of ballistic missiles and the progress in Iran's space program are signs that Iran has achieved the highest levels of military and technological excellence.
Despite international sanctions, the general boasts, "Today, I proudly announce that an Islamic Iran is not only capable of exporting industrial and defense products but also technology and defense technology as well."
Military experts and analysts who cover Iranian military and defense issues have acknowledged that Iran does in fact have the strongest ballistic missile program in the Middle East and that the low costs of the missiles has in fact taken the ballistic missile market out of the West's hands, the editorial says.
August 5, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The city of Gouda seems to be intentionally enabling the cultural insanity that is rapidly descending across central Europe, as Dutch authorities in this city of about 70,000 are rewarding Muslim street thugs, mostly of Moroccan immigrant stock, with free martial arts training.
The "theory," such as it is, relies upon the belief that this type of formalized instruction will instill a sense of responsibility among a group of people who have so far generationally refused to assimilate into the larger Dutch society.
Holland's growing Muslim population is far more likely to be involved in criminal activity that are non-Muslims and are seen as the primary cause for increased anti-Semitism in this traditionally "free thinking" country.
Many of these Muslim immigrants are employing a policy of cultural imperialism, which has led to "no-go" areas in Moroccan neighborhoods, where police are forbidden to patrol because of the danger involved.
August 3, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A recently released Gallup poll of Muslims must be sending shockwaves throughout the entrenched, self-appointed spokesmen for the American Islamic community.
The in-depth survey done by the Abu Dhabi Gallup Center [see, http://www.abudhabigallupcenter.com/148778/REPORT-BILINGUAL-Muslim-Americans-Faith-Freedom-Future.aspx] shows that only 12% of men and 11% of women support CAIR, the disgraced Council on American Islamic Relations and that ISNA [the Islamic Society of North America] has less than half that low level of identification.
Both of these organizations were named as unindicted co-conspirators in the largest U.S. prosecution of Hamas funding ever undertaken, U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation. Both groups have been named in federal courts actions and linked to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, "The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling" [source, The Investigative Project, Federal Dist. Court filing, http://www.investigativeproject.org/2340/federal-judge-agrees-cair-tied-to-hamas]
Despite such findings, we doubt that CAIR, ISNA and the rest of the alphabet soup Muslim Brotherhood front groups will lose their choice status with the MSM, since leftist journos are propaganda driven and few deliver the goods as reliably as do the organizations representing the Islamist thought police.
Another finding of the survey is that American Muslims [as compared with other major religious groups] consistently have far lower levels support for American institutions designed to ensure national security such as the FBI and the U.S. military and hold the U.S. responsible for alleged anti-Muslim sentiment.
Few Muslims [28%] feel that they need to speak out more strongly against terrorism while other religious groups are generally more than twice as likely to believe that Muslims aren't doing enough of this.
According to the Gallup findings, Muslims are about 300% less likely to support developing and acting upon a terrorist profile than non-Muslims, 15% vs. approximately 50%.
This might be explained in that nearly half [48%] of Muslims imagine themselves victims of prejudice, more than twice the average of other religious groups.
Generally, many Muslims display a set of beliefs which are incompatible with what Gallup calls the capacity to "thrive."
However what follows Gallup's data set perhaps betrays the purpose behind the polling effort, as the findings are then used [and abused] to suggest implementation of a set of recommendations which are at odds with true assimilation and integration in non-Muslim majority nations. In some instances the suggestions are clearly anti-democratic.
August 3, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The sight of ex-Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak being brought to trial in a screened steel enclosure must warm the hearts of Muslim Brotherhood officials, but to the world it should serve to demonstrate the country's quick slide towards a dangerous Islamism that threatens to thoroughly destabilize the Middle East.
Charged with general accusations of corruption [in Egypt? We are shocked!] and having ordered the killing of protesters, Mubarak's trial is really a showpiece, a bit of real-life theater in which the nation's Islamist infrastructure is flexing its muscles to test world opinion, which is sadly lacking.
Condemnation of this brutal little side-show seems nonexistent, curiously, especially from the current resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave whose conception of justice encompasses the demand that foreign born terrorists deserve the full legal protection and freedoms guaranteed to citizens of the United States. Possibly Team Obama is waiting for Amnesty International to take up Mubarak's cause and from there, lead from behind as is its style.
But seriously, doesn't a long-time ally of America at least deserve some semblance of justice or what passes for it in the Middle East before being thrown under the treads of a Soviet era tank?
Of course it's a given that Mr. Mubarak is corrupt, though his alleged sins pale to soft glow proportions in comparison to what is currently taking place under the current leadership in Iran, Pakistan, Syria and Libya to name but a few.
Perhaps even with this perspective, Mubarak needs to pay for his crimes in some ultimate fashion - though it is a poor bet that he will reach the hangman's noose before stomach cancer claims him - but the prejudicial sight of him being wheeled into a Cairo courthouse like he was some Arabic Jeffrey Dahmer, liable to slice and dice at the first opportunity, is sending a powerfully disturbing message of the trajectory which Egypt is taking and where the so-called Arab Spring will ultimately end.
August 1, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a July 30 NY Times article [The Man Behind the Anti-Shariah Movement] Andrea Elliott devotes some 3,000 words to attacking the growing number of national security experts [including the former Director of the CIA, James Woolsey] who believe that Shari'a - Islamic religious law - represents a clear and present danger to American Constitutional government.
Elliott received a 2007 Pulitzer [feature writing] for her NY Times' series [March 5, 6 and 7, 2006] whitewashing an Islamist Brooklyn imam, Sheik Reda Shata. The sole intent of that endeavor seems to have been calculated to make Shata appear moderate, something very important to the multicultural thought police - after all, we can't have the actions and beliefs of domestic Muslims judged under the harsh light of traditional American or Western standards can we?
In the July 30 hit-piece, Elliott breathlessly lays out a supposed right-wing conspiracy theory, the purpose of which it seems is to make Muslim Americans second class citizens by denying them the right to practice their religion.
Rather than devoting additional ink to countering the impression Ms. Elliott sought to create, we will let David Yerushalmi, a leader in the American Laws for American Courts movement, speak to the need for banning Shari'a, and other foreign legal systems from having any impact on American jurisprudence.
