FBI Imam Diego G Rodriguez, Busted Muslim Terror Suspects “Violated...True Tenets Of Their Faith”

February 25, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – On December 14, “Director James B. Comey…named Diego G. Rodriguez the assistant director in charge (ADIC) of the FBI’s New York Field Office…”

Unknown at the time of his promotion, it has since been revealed that Mr. Rodriquez should more properly be addressed as “imam bin-Rodriguez.”

Not the type for wasting time, the imam has issued what is believed to be his first fatwa, having ruled that the three Brooklyn Muslims [all nominally Muslim, foreign nationals] who were arrested today on charges of aiding and abetting an FTO [ISIS] are not Islamic and hence, takfir.

“As alleged, the defendants looked to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant by flying to Turkey in a vain attempt to evade detection. And one of the defendants was prepared to commit acts of terror here—in America—if he could not travel, to include killing FBI agents. The defendants violated the true tenants of their faith in pursuit of their radical, violent agenda. We rely on help from the community, the public, and religious leaders to be mindful of those who could be radicalized. We cannot do this alone,” said FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Rodriguez.” [see, “ FBI: Muslim Men From Brooklyn Arrested Over Plot To Join ISIS “Violated The True Tenets” Of Islam”, Weasel Zippers

We commend Agent Rodriguez on his devotion to the Team Obama party line, realizing [along with the State Department’s Grand Mufti Mohammed Kerry] that Westerners who have never opened a Qur’an make the best Muslim jurists.

Allah knows best…

Pointless Iranian Nuke Negotiations Drag On As Terror Haven Strengthens Ties With HAMAS

February 23, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The US State Department is nearly breathless in anticipation of the “new way forward,” recently established in the nuke negotiations between the Ayatollocracy and the West.

As AP reports, “The United States and Iran are working on a two-phase deal that clamps down on Tehran's nuclear program for at least a decade before providing it leeway over the remainder of the agreement to slowly ramp up activities that could be used to make weapons.”

Translating from AP’s usual pro-Obama gibberish, at best the West gets nothing from the terms of the proposed agreement except for an absurd promise by the Iranians that they will stop their weaponization program [which it claims doesn’t exist] for the next ten years.

There will of course not be a corresponding framework of rigorous inspections to make sure that Iran doesn’t cheat. In reality, “cheating” on the agreement is already a given since the country has not allowed, nor will it ever permit the type of onsite, unannounced inspections necessary for even a modicum of surety regarding the terms of the treaty.

With respect to Obama’s Iranian dog-and-pony show; it was never intended to accomplish its stated purpose, denying the aggressive theocracy the means to develop nuclear weapons. It was designed to create light and heat where there is none as the president desperately seeks the mere appearance of a tangible “accomplishment” in this area since none are readily apparent as of this writing.

We could hardly imagine a grander tribute to a foreign policy which has largely destabilized much of the world.

But as they say on late night television, “folks, that’s not all…” While the P5+1 busily throws Israel under the bus, Iran and HAMAS are strengthening ties at a time when relations between the United States and the Jewish state are at an all time low and while the country is under increasing attack by HAMAS and other practitioners of Islamic jihad.

New York Times’ Belated Admission That Saddam Had Thousands Of WMDs: A National Security Professional Responds

By WILLIAM MAYER

February 17, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – For some, the claims surrounding Saddam Hussein’s possession of weapons of mass destruction be they kinetic, chemical or biological in nature, is very old news. All of official DC including its lap dog media “settled” the matter long ago.

Bush lied, people died…

However for many people, this writer included, the fable regarding the war in Iraq which has now become accepted fact is not just inaccurate; it’s monstrously so. The topic remains of extreme importance because it’s this narrative which now binds our hands and limits our actions as the United States stands by watching as ISIS burns its way towards the global caliphate.

In politics, perception is often reality and the public now firmly believes that “Bush’s” ground war in the Middle East was an egregious mistake that ended in failure. Unfortunately it’s this tainted lens through which all subsequent efforts to confront Islamic jihad are seen.

We last wrote about this and related topics in a November 2014 feature piece, Obama, GW Bush, WMDs And CDC’s Response To Ebola - U.S. Wide Open For Asymmetrical Warfare On A Horrific Scale

“…A striking defect of the way consecutive administrations [Clinton and Bush] approached this problem was the failure to assemble and evaluate the evidence at hand as a whole. If this had been done, it should have been possible to have taken preemptive action much earlier because we would have seen the pattern and known then rather than years after the fact, that Saddam absolutely had WMDs, used them, and acted to retain the infrastructure to continue these programs to completion when the climate was less restrictive.

Video Highlights Of Center For Security Policy Summit: Defeat Jihad

February 16, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy has been doing yeoman’s work in the battle to defeat the ideology of jihad for well over a decade.

To that end, last week the DC based think tank sponsored a high-level conference on defeating Islamic terror.

As the Center described the project, “Today, an extraordinary gathering of freedom-fighters in what might best be described as the War for the Free World convened in Washington, D.C. Their purpose was to anticipate and rebut the thesis of President Obama’s “Countering Violent Extremism Summit” next week – namely, that the United States faces hostile forces whose identity, motivations and capabilities are defined by an opaque euphemism: violent extremism.”

Jew Hatred On Display In France, PM Attacked Over Use Of “Islamo-Fascist” In Characterizing Current European Jihad Targeting Jews

February 16, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls has told the truth, the recent terror attacks throughout Europe are inextricably tied to Islam.

On Monday, Valls, “…slammed the attacks in Denmark by Islamist terrorist Omar Abdel Hamid Hussein on Saturday, in which two people were murdered, as being an act of "Islamo-fascism." [source, Ari Yeshar, French PM Slams 'Islamo-Fascism,' is 'Under Jewish Influence , Arutz Sheva]

Though many on the Continent are aware that the murderous terror attacks of the last month are traceable to Islamist ideology, few citizens, let alone government officials dare mention it in public. Linking jihadist Islam with Fascism is so out of the ordinary in Europe that Mr. Valls deserves special credit for stating his case in terminology which the left certainly understands.

Not only is factual discussion of the threat posed by normative Islam actively suppressed by progressive/Marxist, speaking “truth to Islam” is criminally punishable in all too many European countries.

It is Valls’ statement of moral clarity, we assume, which is stoking the lefts outrage over the matter.

Unfortunately PM Valls’ viewpoint is not widely shared. Case in point; former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas in attempting to refute Valls’ depiction of a jihadist Islam raised the ugly specter of Jew-hatred by suggesting that Valls’ thinking on the matter was influenced by his Jewish wife.

With this level of anti-Semitism common among the French ruling class, it’s no wonder that Jews are fleeing the country for safer, more tolerant climes, such as Israel.

Liberal Magazine Atlantic Gets It: “The Islamic State is…Very Islamic”

February 16, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Atlantic magazine, not known for its right-wing flights of fancy or profligate use of politically disapproved speech, has distinguished itself in publishing an important article which largely destroys the argument, made by most progressive/Marxists, that Islamic terrorism is un-Islamic.

“…The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers, drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam…” [source, Graeme Wood, What ISIS Really Wants, Atlantic online]

“…the ranks of the Islamic State are deeply infused with religious vigor. Koranic quotations are ubiquitous. “Even the foot soldiers spout this stuff constantly,” Haykel said. “They mug for their cameras and repeat their basic doctrines in formulaic fashion, and they do it all the time.” He regards the claim that the Islamic State has distorted the texts of Islam as preposterous, sustainable only through willful ignorance…” [source, ibid]

To the small group of national security professionals, writers and researchers who are all too familiar with the link between terrorism and normative Islam it might seem like announcing that winter is cold. But that would not only miss the point, it would absolve the professional Islamist apologists such as our CIC and the various Muslim Brotherhood associates whom Mr. Obama has empowered from engaging in a concerted campaign of disinformation regarding Islam.

It’s impossible to predict what, if any, impact this lengthy and well researched piece will have within the DC brain trust, we don’t hold very high expectations, yet it’s gratifying to see a left wing media source have the insight and courage to publish the truth.

Kudos!

Somewhere, the late Christopher Hitchens is smiling…

Double Terror Attack In Copenhagen: Two Dead, At Least Three Wounded In Related Incidents

February 15, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The alleged suspect in yesterday’s twin terror shootings, was killed this morning in Copenhagen by LE personnel

In the first attack, an Arabic looking man opened fire - with what is believed to be a machine gun - on a small group of free speech supporters who were meeting at a Copenhagen coffee shop to show solidarity with embattled cartoonist Lars Vilks. Vilks became notorious within jihadist circles after he published images caricaturing Mohammed.

At the time, the police described the perp as, “Male, 25-30 years old, around 185cm tall, athletic build with an Arabic appearance but with lighter skin than normal and with black, slick hair. He was wearing a black or dark blue ski coat with matching pants and presumably gloves. He had covered the bottom part of his face all the way up to the eyes with a guerrilla scarf in yellow/orange and red. He had a black machine gun/machine rifle. Witnesses described it as 90-100cm long, completely black and plastic-looking.”

At 7:30 PM Danish time, PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt released the following comment, “Denmark was today hit by a cold-blooded act of terror. Everything points toward the shooting in Østerbro being a political assassination attempt and thus an act of terror.” Police are out in full force across the country. We are using all of our resources. The authorities’ first priority here and now is to catch the perpetrators. The shooting is an action that fills me with deep anger. We will do everything to find the guilty parties and bring them before a court. We have some tough days ahead of us in which our solidarity will be tested. But in Denmark, we will never yield to violence.”

A few hours later, it’s believed that the same gunman shot and killed a man who was standing guard at a bat mitzvah ceremony at a local synagogue.

As has come to be the expected the response to the Islamic jihad which is taking place across Europe, official and unofficial spokesmen are once again proving themselves to be delusional fools, uttering government approved talking points rather than connecting the shootings to their source, Muslims acting in a manner consistent with normative Islam.

These politicians and decision makers refuse, typically wringing their hands while spouting absurd platitudes in an effort to avoid drawing the obvious conclusion, that the quickly spiraling out-of-control global jihad is a mainstream movement, not the work of so called lone wolves.

Crusaders: Obama’s National Prayer Breakfast Attack On Christianity Follows The Jihadist Script

By WILLIAM MAYER

February 11, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Since at least 1996 Muslim jihadists have been in a declared state of war against the United States, Israel and what they refer to as the “alliance,” primarily the countries which make up Europe.

19 years later, the Western powers are still failing to seriously and consistently engage the Muslim campaign of terror for what it is, an existential threat to every society which does not abide the Shari’a. Countries which are nominally Islamic such as Saudi Arabia are also considered enemies in that they don’t practice a form of Islam in line with the dictates of the A. Zawahiri’s and Abubakar Shekau’s [leader of Nigeria’s Boko Haram] of the world.

Certainly there have been periods, such as after the September 11, 2001 attacks when America and its allies entered into a shooting war with al-Qaeda, the Taliban and to a lesser extent, what have come to be known as al-Qaeda franchises [Islamic terrorist groups which have sworn allegiance to the parent organization formerly led by Osama bin-Laden and which is now headed by bin-Laden’s top lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawiri], but these have not been sustained, witness the rise of ISIS in Iraq and Boko Haram in Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon.

The malignant ascendancy of ISIS is due solely to the actions of a CIC who has prioritized cheap political stunts over the long-term security interests of the United States. It might be hard to fathom but just 6 years ago, al-Qaeda central had been wrecked, the Sunni jihadists had been defeated in Iraq and the Taliban had been largely neutralized as a political force, in Afghanistan. These defeats were devastating, even bin-Laden admitted it.

“The enemy prevented the establishment of the state of Muslims after defeating the Russians in Afghanistan , then when Taliban movement established their state it was encircled by the enemy ,attacked and over thrown… My Mujaheddin brothers in Iraq : As you are worthy of praise and compliments , also because of your patience and being down to earth , you are worthy of gentle reproach and advice . You did the best in a duty of the great duties…” [ A Message To The People Of Iraq By Sheikh Osama bin-Laden , World Analysis website]

Unfortunately these gains have since been squandered because President Obama, in undertaking a foolish military retreat, has allowed the terrorists to once again thrive. Additionally, the president has actually stoked numerous Muslim insurgencies throughout the world – witness his meddling in Egypt’s politics by openly supporting the rogue government of Mohammed Morsi, a high ranking member of the Muslim Brotherhood and now in jail on charges of sedition.

Jihadism In Holland Is Spinning Out Of Control: Salafism On The Rise

By EMERSON VERMAAT

February 9, 2015 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On February 4, 2015, “the provincial division of the Islamic State (IS) for al-Fallujah,” Iraq, claimed a suicide bombing by a Dutch fighter identified as Abu Abdul Rahman al-Hollandi. The latest Dutch suicide bomber is believed to be Lofti S. (Abu Hanief) from Amsterdam. A martyrdom’s video is being prepared showing a smiling Lofti S. who enters a truck and drives towards the location where the suicide bombing attack takes place. He played an important role in IS propaganda.

Lofti S. was one of the speakers at an IS-demonstration in The Hague in July 2014. There, IS-followers shouted slogans such as “Kill all the dirty Jews!” Another speaker at that demonstration was Azzedine Choukoud (Abu Moussa). Black IS-flags were on display as well.

Another dangerous jihadist from Amsterdam is Omar H. When he was arrested in March 2012 police discovered that he was trying to make a bomb. A Dutch court sentenced him to just one year at the end of 2013. The appeals court sentenced him to one and a half years on January 27, 2015 – also a very mild sentence. But Omar H. did not show up for court. He had left for Iraq instead – although his passport had been confiscated. Reliable sources told the Dutch newspaper “Algemeen Dagblad” early February that 23-year-old Omar H. is now in Fallujah where he joined the Islamic State. There, he probably met his fellow jihadist Lofti S. who would blow himself up in Fallujah on February 4.

There was a political row over the fact that Omar H. managed to travel to Syria or Iraq. Ivo Opstelten, the Dutch Minister of Security and Justice, told parliament that he could not confirm what “Algemeen Dagblad” had reported about Omar H.’s possible whereabouts. “I can’t confirm or deny that,” he lamely said. “I would prefer if it would be otherwise.” The Dutch Security and Intelligence Service (AIVD) somehow lost track of Omar H. – largely due to lack of manpower. “The situation changed completely at the beginning of 2013,” AIVD-chief Rob Bertholee said in a speech at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy last December. “Within a few months, more than a hundred jihadists left for Syria. The wave surprised everyone. Present estimates put potential Dutch participants in the Syrian conflict at a few hundred, with several thousand more sympathizers.” “Interestingly, a rising number of women and girls, even as young as thirteen, wish to travel to Syria.”

Ronald Sandee, a former Dutch military intelligence expert and now a global jihad analyst for Kronos Advisory, told “Algemeen Dagblad” that one and a half years prison sentences do not have any effect. “People such as Omar H. have their own support system. If you have the right friends, they will always be able to get you out of the country.” Confiscating passports is not enough. A Dutch Identity Card allows you to enter Turkey – as many jihadists, also girls or so-called “jihad brides” do. What will happen if the well trained Omar H. returns to the Netherlands and stages a terror attack there? This is what happened in Belgium and France.

Omar H. and Sabir Khan were reportedly close friends. H. stayed at Khan’s house in The Hague. Khan is a Dutch-Pakistani jihadist who fought against the American army in Afghanistan. The Americans believe that Khan cooperated with al-Qaeda and prepared a terror attack in Afghanistan. Liberal Dutch courts, however, lamely ruled that Khan cannot be extradited to the United States.

Muslim Persecution of Christians: A Centuries Old Phenomenon


By RAYMOND IBRAHIM

February 4, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The one glaring fact concerning the persecution of approximately 100 million Christians around the world today is that the overwhelming majority of it is being committed by Muslims of all races, nationalities, languages, and socio-political circumstances: Muslims from among America’s allies (Saudi Arabia) and from its enemies (Iran); Muslims from economically rich nations (Qatar) and from poor nations (Somalia and Yemen); Muslims from “Islamic republic” nations (Afghanistan) and from “moderate” nations (Malaysia and Indonesia); Muslims from nations rescued by America (Kuwait) and Muslims from nations claiming “grievances” against the U.S. (fill in the blank __).

This fact is underscored in Open Doors’ recent 2015 World Watch List—a report that highlights and ranks the 50 worst nations persecuting Christians. It finds that “Islamic extremism” is the main source of persecution in 40 of the top 50 countries—that is, 80 percent of the nations where Christians are persecuted are Muslim. As for the top ten worst countries persecuting Christians, nine of them are Muslim-majority—that is, 90 percent of nations where Christians experience “extreme persecution” are Muslim.

Still, considering that the 2015 World Watch List ranks North Korea—non-Islamic, communist—as the number one worst persecutor of Christians, why belabor the religious identity of Muslims? Surely Christian persecution is not intrinsic to the Islamic world, but is a product of repressive regimes and other socio-economic factors—as the North Korean example suggests and as many analysts and media maintain?

Here we come to some critically important but blurred distinctions. While Christians are indeed suffering extreme persecution in North Korea, these fall into the realm of the temporal and aberrant. Something as simple as overthrowing the North Korean regime would likely end persecution there overnight—just as the fall of Communist Soviet Union saw religious persecution come to a quick close.

In the Islamic world, however, a similar scenario would not alleviate the sufferings of Christians by an iota. Quite the opposite; where dictators fall (often thanks to U.S. intervention)—Saddam in Iraq, Qaddafi in Libya, and ongoing attempts against Assad in Syria—Christian persecution dramatically rises. Today Iraq is the third worst nation in the world in which to be Christian, Syria fourth, and Libya 13th

“Imams” At Iran’s Press TV Issue Fatwah, Label ISIS/ISIL As Takfir: Not Islamic

February 4, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Seemingly marching to the Obama administration’s claim that ISIS is non-Islamic, Press TV, a wholly owned Iranian propaganda outlet, has “officially” branded ISIS as takfir.

“The ISIL Takfiri group has threatened to demolish churches in Syria's northeastern province of Hasakah, if they refuse to remove crosses…” [source, ISIL tells Christians to remove crosses from churches, Press TV]

Takfir is the Islamic juridical process whereby people who are nominally Muslims, in effect are excommunicated from the religion. Once the determination is made they become “unbelievers” [kafir] and are no longer considered Muslim.

Historically the most frequent use of this practice has been for one group of Muslims to brand other Muslims as apostates so that they can be attacked and killed without violating the Qur’anic prohibition regarding taking the lives of other “believers.”1.

“[This is] the atonement by God: and God is indeed all knowing, wise. But whoever deliberately slays another believer, his requital shall be hell, therein to abide; and God will condemn him, and will reject him; and will prepare him for awesome suffering.”1. [source, Qur’an, Surah 4:93]

Regarding branding ISIS as takfir, Al Azhar University in Cairo, the world’s oldest and most influential institution for training [sunni] imams deliberated over the issue in December of 2014, after the group became impossible to ignore.

In an article appearing in Al-Aribiya, “Al-Azhar refused to pronounce takfir (Islamic anathema) on ISIS…[stating]…that nobody is outside of Islam unless he himself says he is…” [see, Al-Azhar: No Takfir Against the Islamic State, Gates of Vienna website, which had the article translated from the Arabic]

The question is thus posed; who can speak more authoritatively on this matter, President Obama, Hillary Clinton, the State Department, the Western legacy media, Islamist organizations such as PressTV or the ruling of the world’s undisputed center of Muslim higher education, Al Azhar University?

French "Anti-Terror" Unit Carved Up By Knife Wielding Perp, Believed Related To French Jewish Market Jihadist Amedy Coulibaly


February 3, 2015 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – Two French “soldiers” were injured today by a knife wielding Muslim. The 3-man anti-terror guard was posted outside of a Jewish community center in the city of Nice.

Initially the attacker’s first name, Mousa, was all that was made available by the way of identification by French LE. Later he was identified as Mousa Coulibaly and is believed to be related to the Muslim terrorist [Amedy Coulibaly] who attacked the Paris Jewish market after the January 7 Charlie Hebdo massacre. [see, Levi Winchester, Police investigating link between man who knifed soldiers in France and Amedy Coulibaly, UK Express]

The jihadist had, just before the incident, been cited for taking public transportation without a ticket. Stopped at the turnstile, Mousa refused to produce identification.

What is puzzling about this event is how a man could approach, let alone attack three armed soldiers apparently on an anti-terror detail and why it took bystanders to finally subdue the perp.

Apparently this isn’t Coulibaly’s first brush with the French LE community and his behavior prior to the violent assault appears to be the MO of an ISIS wannabe:

"The person responsible, who is in his thirties and from the Paris region, is known to police," Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said. According to police, the man had been questioned by French security services after he travelled to Turkey on a one-way ticket in late January and was intercepted and flown back to Nice by Turkish authorities.” [source, Two French soldiers wounded in knife attack in Nice, Reuters]

What conclusion should French jihadists draw from this incident?

Law Enforcement Contunes Sorry Record In Partnering With Islamists


By WILLIAM MAYER and BEILA RABINOWITZ

January 14, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In August of 2008 the FBI and New York State Police presented special awards to the Muslim Scouts of America troop from the Hancock, New York village of "Holy Islamberg." [http://islamicpost.wordpress.com/2008/08/18/muslim-scouts-of-america-receive-awards-for-911-relief-work]

The medals did not originate with the police units but were provided by El Sheikh Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, who resides in Lahore, Pakistan.

The scouts were trained by an organization which calls itself Muslims of the Americas [MOA].

MOA is widely believed to be part of Jamaat Al Fuqra [JAF] one of the most radical Islamist groups operating in the United States today and which has founded numerous radical Muslim enclaves across the United States.

JAF is led by the aforementioned Sheikh Gilani who is thought to be intimately connected with the kidnapping and subsequent beheading of Wall Street Journal writer Daniel Pearl [it is believed that Pearl was on his way to visit Gilani when he was accosted].
