Obama’s Pretend War Claims 6 More American Service Deaths in Afghanistan
December 21, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Though President Obama has reversed course, deciding to retain a token [9,800] troops in Afghanistan, the about face has neither aided efforts to stand up a reasonably effective indigenous Afghan defense force, nor has it resulted in insulating U.S. soldiers from the effects of a full court push by the Taliban, which is especially acute in Helmand Province.
Just hours ago a convoy deployed out of Bagram Air Base was attacked by a motorcycle driver carrying a VBIED resulting in the death of 6 American troops and the wounding of at least one more. [see, Mujib Mashaal and Matthew Rosenberg, 6 American Soldiers Killed In Taliban Attack In Afghanistan , NYT]
Afghan casualties are listed as two.
Located in Parwan Province, Bagram had been considered as one of the more secure areas in the country.
Obama’s consolidation of troops has rather than increasing security, resulted in making locked-down troops sitting ducks since the lack of true offensive operations allows the resurgent Taliban to probe ever deeper into areas in which they had previously unable to penetrate.
Helmand Province. the birthplace of the Taliban, is a strategic target, it being the center of the area’s opium trade. The province’s capital, Lashkar Gah fell under furious assault in October and is still encircled and under threat.
Breaking: French Security Shutters 3 Mosques In Terror Dragnet
Hundreds of Weapons Seized
By WILLIAM MAYER
December 16, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The UK Express is reporting that over the last two weeks French law enforcement and state security personnel have raided over 2,000 homes, numerous commercial buildings and have in the course of the investigation seized over 300 weapons, some of them of military configuration.
“On Wednesday, French police shut down three mosques as part of anti-terror operations…Security officials found jihadist documents at the mosque where yesterday's raids took place…France has been under a state of emergency since 130 people were killed in a series of terror attacks in Paris on November 13. Since then, some 2,235 homes and buildings have been raided, 232 people taken into custody, and 334 weapons confiscated….[the inspector stated]…’In 15 days we have seized one-third of the quantity of war-grade weapons that are normally seized in a year.’” [source, Philippe Araujo, Three mosques shut down in anti-terror raids as officers seize 330 war weapons , UK Express]
We find this news consistent with the historical Islamic view of the function of the mosque/Masjid within Dar al-Harb, non-Islamic territory, literally “the house of war.”
This being a serious charge and one which we make with great care and precision, it deserves a thorough presentation, as follows.
Central to understanding this matter was the seminal anti-terror prosecution which took place  during the GW Bush presidency, U.S. v Holy Land Foundation For Relief and Development. [see, U.S. v Holy Land [PDF presentation] and US v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, et al. Richardson, TX , Investigative Project on Terrorism. This resource is a portal to hundreds of trial related documents]
Thousands of pages of evidentiary material were entered into the record by the government, but for our purposes we will only concentrate on a few of these documents.
What we intend to prove is that there has been an active plan in place for decades, established by the Muslim Brotherhood, with the intent of subverting and eventually destroying civil government in the United States. Contrary to the prevailing myth which attempts to de-link Islam from terrorism, jihad is a central Muslim concept, sometimes thought of as the 6th pillar of Islam and within the theory of irregular, culture based warfare envisioned by the Ikhwan, the mosque/Masjid/Islamic center serves a vital military function.
The first of these was a government filing [see, List of Unindicted Co-conspirators and/or Joint Venturers, PipeLineNews.org] naming dozens of these terror friendly domestic Muslim groups, including the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR], the Islamic Society of North America [ISNA] and the North American Islamic Trust [NAIT, an Islamic waqf] which holds the deed to many radical American mosques.[Read More]
Catholic Shari’a Compliance - Brother Rice High School
By WILLIAM MAYER
December 16, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – There is a good deal of prologue required to properly frame the following piece so please bear with us as we provide some context.
As the Muslim world has become ever more fundamentalist in nature and consequently more violent, not even the United States - after a period seeming quiescence - is being spared from the tendrils of a renewed and less centrally directed jihad. The motive force behind the resurgence has been the success of ISIS [primarily in Iraq, Syria and Libya] over the past year and its Muslim Brotherhood/Salafist/Wahhabist based ideology which calls for the establishment of a global Islamic theocracy, an imperial caliphate.
Despite technically having been engaged in hostilities with Islamic jihadism since bin-Laden’s 1996 & 1998 fatwas against the “Crusaders,” the United States has failed, through three successive administrations to come to terms with the concept of holy warfare waged against infidels and non-rightly-guided Muslims.
Through a series of increasingly brazen attacks – bombings of American Embassies in Africa, an amphibious assault against the U.S.S. Cole, the September 11 Twin Towers attacks, the jihad of Major Nidal Hasan, the Boston Bombing, the UC Merced “lone” wolf Muslim stabber and finally the San Bernardino massacre of 11/13 – the American government edifice still refuses to admit that it is in a state of war against a force which extends directly from the normative practice of Islam, founded in the Shari’a and its sacralized texts, the Qur’an and Hadith.
From bin-Laden’s 1998 fatwa:
“It should not be hidden from you that the people of Islam had suffered from aggression, iniquity and injustice imposed on them by the Zionist-Crusaders alliance and their collaborators; to the extent that the Muslims blood became the cheapest and their wealth as loot in the hands of the enemies.”
Despite Islam’s genocidal campaign against the Christian people, the Catholic Church, far from speaking out against the barbarism of Muslim fanatics, instead embraces them in an attempt to find “common ground” through the breaking of bread, largely with America’s Muslim Brotherhood front groups such as CAIR and ISNA.[Read More]
EXCLUSIVE: Victory for Dutch Prosecutors Against ISIS Recruiters
By EMERSON VERMAAT
December 14, 2015 – Utrecht, Netherlands – PipeLineNews.org - On December 10, 2015, a Dutch court from the city of the Hague convicted nine members of a terrorist organization for recruiting and instigating young Muslims to join the jihad in Syria. This group primarily (but not exclusively) operated in The Hague and in the “Schilderswijk,” a problematic multicultural neighborhood dominated by Moroccan and Turkish immigrants. The Netherlands based organization was an important propaganda outlet for the “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” (ISIS or IS). Some members of the group even traveled to Syria to join ISIS. Two members of the group returned to Holland. This court case was referred to as ‘Context.”
“An organization was operating in the “Schilderswijk” in The Hague. It was partially involved in legal activities but also incited and recruited young people for participation in the jihad in Syria,” the court ruled. It facilitated trips made by the jihadists, collected money, provided information on travel routes and was an active participant on social media platforms, disseminating messages, re-tweets, Facebook messages, hate speech material and videos on violent jihad and martyrdom. “Under the cloak of freedom of speech poisonous messages and inciting videos were distributed,” the court said.
The court rightly referred to this terrorist organization as a “recruitment organization” (“ronselorganisatie”). Defense lawyers were quite dismayed.
Azzedine Choukoud, a Moroccan-Dutch citizen born in 1982, was the leader and chief theoretician of the group; he is also known under the alias, Abou Moussa. He lived in the “Schilderswijk” where he started the recruitment process. Many Moroccan parents were alarmed and began to inform the police about Abou Moussa and his ever growing circle of friends.[Read More]
Retrospective: Racist, Bigot, Islamophobic Hater, President Jimmy Carter Bans Muslim Immigration
December 11, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – In response to the 1979 seizure of the American Embassy in Tehran, Iran and the resultant hostage taking of U.S. Embassy personnel by members of the country’s Revolutionary Guard, then president Jimmy Carter took stern action, strikingly similar to measures suggested by GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
The retaliation which the president simply ordered consisted of, a complete break in diplomatic relations, expulsion of the country’s diplomats, to be accomplished within 24 hrs, prohibition of exports to Iran – including food and medicine – a freezing of 8B in Iranian bank deposits and an immediate ban any further immigration from the country.
We note with great amusement the manner in which Trump’s suggestion of a complete ban on Muslim immigration until “things get sorted out,” has been greeted by the legacy media.
On this issue Fox has made a complete ass of itself with allegedly conservative commentator’s heads exploding on camera as they tut-tut what seem to be – in the wake of two domestic jihadist attacks in the US over the last month – the personification of a prudent and moderate policy.
While the pathetically obsessed Megyn "Butch" Kelly remains Fox's numero-uno Trumpophobe, Charles Krauthammer and George Will are clawing at other for second spot on Murdoch's slippery totem pole of rage.
The whole-scale caving of America’s pretend right should come as no surprise. It's been on display for years now, assuming you want to believe what your eyes and ears have been telling you. GOP party leaders, such as they are, have shown a truculent disdain for the people who put them in office and the recent selection of the newly hirsute Paul Ryan only adds punctuation to the sellout by the fossilized Republican old guard.
UC Merced “Teach In” Mourns Perp, Faisal Mohammad
December 10, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Two weeks after 18 year old student, Faisal Mohammad engaged in a jihadist stabbing and slashing attack at the California campus of UC Merced, school administrators and faculty sponsored a bizarre teach-in, the central theme of which was a revisionist, cultural-Marxist assault on the truth, themed, “Don’t Turn our Tragedy to Hate.” [see, Jennifer Kabbany, UC Merced mourns stabbing spree attacker Faisal Mohammad, seeks to understand him, The College Fix]
What campus officials were trying to hide were the monstrous acts of a Muslim student, attempting to explain them away cloaked in the language of "critical race and ethnic studies" post-modernist lunacy.
Mohammad had, according to fragmentary leaks from of a still unreleased 2 page “manifesto”, envisioned an amplified terror action designed to kill as many students as possible – handcuffing them with PlastiCuffs, praying and then slitting their throats with an 8-10” hunting knife - while hoping to lure local law enforcement into a trap during which the assailant planned on stealing the officers weapons to continue the attack at a higher level of lethality.[Read More]
UC Merced Jihad Investigation Now on Fed Lockdown
December 9, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – On the morning of November 4, 2015, 18 year old Faisal Mohammad - wielding a hunting knife - attacked several classmates as well as an on-site private contractor on the California campus of UC Merced. None of the students were seriously injured, but Mohammad was shot and killed by local LE at the scene.
As we reported at the time:
“Though it took a full 24 hours for the details to finally slither out, we now know that on Wednesday morning, 18 year old U.C. Merced freshman Faisal Mohammad stabbed 4 people in an unprovoked attack. The injured – two students, a contractor working on campus and an employee of the university – are expected to fully recover. Mohammad who used an “8 – 10 inch” hunting style knife in the attack, was shot and killed by local law enforcement, thus proving that the only way to stop a bad guy with a knife is a good guy with a gun.” [source, William Mayer, UC Merced Knife Attack: Islamic Jihad Comes To The Golden State , PipeLineNews.org]
Following the now well established template that is instantly applied to all matters regarding domestic jihad, the event was characterized as having nothing to do with terrorism. As was the case in the subsequent San Bernardino 11/13 jihad, Merced authorities first put forth the fraudulent narrative that there were no extenuating circumstances, in this case, that the actions were simply those a confused and disgruntled young man who had been expelled from a student study group.
In order to establish some credibility for the cover story a bit of evidence was selectively leaked, the existence of a “manifesto” which had been found on Mohammad’s person supposedly absolving the sacred cow of Islam from any connection to the tragic event.[Read More]
The American Police State and the Preposterous Construct Called “Radical” Islam
By: WILLIAM MAYER
December 7, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Though it's difficult to pose the thesis question without the inclusion of "triggering" associations, we will nonetheless try...Considering that the wide-scale display of mass casualty violence [UC Merced, Paris and San Bernardino] over the last month has reignited a debate which has been ongoing now for nearly 15 years - what motivates the perps to do what they do?
Absent from all of the officially designated explanations - and this extends from the administration, through its handmaidens in the press and on to the edutocracy - is even the vaguest suggestion that the terrorism in which we are now steeped has anything intrinsically to do with doctrinal Islam.
The matter is a sub-component of a larger issue – the epic though behind the scenes struggle - to control of the lexicon of the West with an eye towards advancing a counter cultural, subversive agenda making it intellectually impossible to link jihad with Islam.
About this, much has recently been written and few have presented the truth more clearly than former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, first noting the literal truth, then amplifying on the twisted rhetoric of Islamist apologetics:
"The terrorist attack was ignited by Islamic supremacist ideology, a mainstream interpretation of Islam drawn directly and literally from Muslim scripture. So the attack was a terrorist attack when it was happening, it was a terrorist attack yesterday when the government would not acknowledge that fact, and it is a terrorist attack now...
The Misnomer of Islamic “Radicalization”
By WILLIAM MAYER
December 3, 2015 - San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – As the immediate shock abates and the horrific reality of the 12/2 San Bernardino jihad [14 KIA 17 wounded] and the 11/13 Paris attacks [130 KIA, hundreds wounded] permeate into the consciousness of the non-Muslim world, a single theory of causation is being offered.
It goes something like this; the organized teams of jihadists who struck with such force in San Bernardino and Paris were previously blissfully peaceful, beret wearing Middle East type chaps whistling la Marseillaise….until…a black cat or something crossed their path and they fell under the thrall of a “radical cleric” who convinced them that their time was better served by going on a murderous rampage, often screaming “Allah is greatest.”
Chortle if you wish but this isn’t really that far from the truth. It’s spread – like manure - by the cultural elite because it supports the next set of precepts in an argument, notable only for its banality, that “not all Muslims are terrorists” and that “we are not at war with Islam.”
While it’s certainly irrefutable that all Muslims are not alike, still can it be happenstance that so many Muslim males are named in honor of an illiterate 7th century child molesting sadist? As to the other matter, in reality the West isn’t at war with anything, excepting its own heritage and traditions.
Fact: There are only 2 million American Muslims, while 10% of the French population is Muslim [6.5-7M out of a total population of roughly 65M] - by far the largest such population in Europe.
Yet the net effect is inevitably the same, regardless of numbers...innocents die.
Muslims [and adherents of similar totalitarian/triumphalist ideologies] generally aren't subject to what we in the West are calling “radicalization,” because that implies that certain clerics or other significant influences brainwash impressionable, primarily male, Muslims into behavior which is sociopathic and inconsistent with their holiest texts.
