Basim Elkarra, CAIR Sacramento Director, Runs For Twin Rivers School Board
By WILLIAM MAYER
April 29, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – There seems to be a bit of controversy surrounding Basim Elkarra’s run for the Sacramento area’s Twin Rivers School Board. Knowing Elkarra's MO, we find it unsurprising that something of this nature might surface in such close proximity to the election.
Only the facts ma’am…
As was reported by the local media, a political flyer, of unknown origin, was circulated - in unknown quantities - the content of which was immediately deemed by that august group, to be an “ethnic,” “religious,” “racist” smear.
Not having seen all of the documents associated with this allegation, we’re reserving judgment as to how it should be characterized, though of course if the flyer is truly defamatory in Mr. Elkarra’s opinion, he should pursue whatever legal avenues he has available to resolve the issue to his satisfaction.
Regarding the flyer, we find it oddly coincidental that a document of this nature would simply materialize knowing the predictably knee-jerk reaction with which the Sacramento press would respond – outrage, allegations of bigotry, Islamophobia etc., all of which tend to cast Mr. Elkarra in the role of victim.
Being a sympathetic figure isn’t a bad place to reside when running for political office.
To be clear, having watched the antics of the Sacramento media over the years we know that it might as well identify itself [call it truth in advertising] as a house organ of the Democrat party, so the rush to judgment, assuming facts not in evidence - that the flyer was legitimate and that it was circulated with defamatory intent - was entirely predictable, given the fact that the candidate has such widespread support among Democrat power-players
“A kickoff reception at The Grand in downtown Sacramento on March 15 generated at least $25,000. Perhaps even more significant was that the fundraiser host list was a virtual who’s who of local Democrats, including state Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones; state Sen. Richard Pan; former state Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg; Assemblyman Jim Cooper; former Assemblyman Roger Dickinson; Sacramento council members Allen Warren, Steve Hansen and Angelique Ashby; and Sacramento County Supervisor Phil Serna...” [source, Diana Lambert, Twin Rivers race features charter school operator, Democratic Party activist, Sac Bee]
Note to Sacto journos: “Islamophobia” doesn’t exist in the United States. If for some reason you care to argue the facts, consider first, reviewing the Uniform Crime Statistics which are compiled by the U.S. Department of Justice every year.
That the charge of Islamophobia is an agendized canard, despite major provocations by Islamists and their various domestic Muslim Brotherhood front groups, not to mention 9/11 [which the last time we checked was undertaken entirely by individuals of the Islamic faith] attests to the basic goodness and fair mindedness of the American people. This is one of the reasons why so many Muslims immigrate to the United States in the first place.[Read More]
Iran Followup: Parchin Nuke Plant Explosion Was Sabotage
April 24, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – In early October, 2014 we briefly referenced an explosion which took place at Iran’s super-secret Parchin research plant, located approximately 20 m SE of Tehran [see, Israel Strikes? - Iran’s Parchin Nuke Site Spontaneously Explodes ].
Updating that report, we now believe that our initial judgment of the matter was correct, that the explosion was highly likely to have been the result of an Israeli sabotage operation rather than having been caused by the accidental breaching of a natural gas pipe line at the facility, the other operative theory.
Though variously sourced, the Times of Israel/AFP, the Iran/IAEA Project and Reuters have all presented information regarding that incident as well as how the plant functions within Iran’s nuke research infrastructure. [please reference, Blast At Suspect Iran Nuke Facility Was Caused By Foreign Country , Iran & IAEA, Jeffrey Heller, Israel says Iran used Parchin military site for testing nuclear detonation technology ]
“According to satellite images taken after the blast, Israeli researcher Ronen Solomon told the TV channel, the affected buildings were bunkers where work was being carried out on triggers to detonate nuclear devices.” [Times Israel]
“Little headway appeared to have been made on the IAEA’s most urgent request – access for its inspectors to the Parchin military site where the agency believes Iran has done explosives tests relevant for developing a nuclear weapons capability.” [Iran & IAEA]
Just a few days before the mysterious explosion Reuter’s reported the following:
“Israel said on Wednesday that Iran has used its Parchin military base as the site for secret tests of technology that could be used only for detonating a nuclear weapon.”
Last Call: Learn your Shari’a from the Masters – ISNA
April 22, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The heart beats quicker, as ISNA’s Conference on the Shari’a ["Sha-ri'-a" demi-religious ideology of subjugation and tyranny...or alternatively, for "human development"] is only a couple of weeks away!
Official program: Understanding Shari'ah: Sacred Principles for Human Development.
The guest luminaries are the usual “distinguished” Islamic thinkers, Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, Dr. Zulfiqar Ali Shah, Dr. Ihsan Bagby. Br. Azhar Azeez (President of ISNA), Sh. Mohammad Qatanani, Dr. Zainab Alwani, Sh. Yasir Fahmy and Prof. Ebrahim Moosa (Banquet Keynote Speaker).
Hurry, tickets are going fast.
We certainly hope Holder’s DOJ and J. Kerry’s State Dept. will be in attendance…what’s an ISNA conference without its dhimmi contingent from DC?
And now a word from one of the premiere practitioners of the “holy war,” Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram a fraternal Nigerian group dedicated to strengthening his countrymen’s faith.
When Shekau isn’t out raping, pillaging and torturing he’s usually heard waxing eloquently about the imperatives of the Shari’a.
“This war is against Christians…I mean Christians generally…” [source, Abubakar Shekau, video link, Abubakar Shekau: 'Kill, Kill, Kill!',” New York Times]
The war to which Shekau refers is of course the global jihad against unbelievers. He takes his religious duties very seriously, since as he has stated on numerous occasions, the Qur’an, Allah’s religion, commands him to do so.
It should go without saying, but we will repeat it here nonetheless that the edicts and commands which are incorporated into the Qur’an and Sunnah [way of life/teachings of Mohammed] are incorporated into the legal corpus of the Shari’a, so please don’t miss your chance to become informed, grab those tickets today.
Due to security concerns, we unfortunately will not be attending the event, Insha’Allah.
Six Somali “Americans” Arrested in Plot to Join and Possibly Recruit for ISIS
April 21, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – On Sunday, in a multi-state bust, federal law enforcement arrested 6 men [believed to be of Somali heritage] in a plot to join and possibly recruit for the terrorist ISIS caliphate.
4 were apprehended in Minneapolis, Minnesota and 2 in the San Diego area of California.
“All six charged Monday had been arrested Sunday. Four appeared in federal court in St. Paul, Minn.—Adnan Farah, Zacharia Yusuf Abdurahman, Hanad Mustafe Musse and Guled Ali Omar—where the court appointed lawyers. Two others appeared in a San Diego court—Mr. Daud and Mohamed Abdihamid Farah—where they were arrested after driving from Minneapolis. They were ordered held pending a detention hearing this week. [source, Andrew Grossman, Ben Kesling Tamara Audi, U.S. Charges Six Minnesota Men With Trying to Join ISIS , Wall Street Journal]
A brother of one of those arrested, Mr. Omar, is currently facing federal charges over his attempt to join the Somali jihadist group Al-Shabaab.
As detailed by this writer a few days ago [see, William Mayer, State Department Plans To “Resettle” Syrians In Spartanburg, SC: Obama Funds Catholic Immigration Effort , PipeLineNews.org] the U.S. State Department continues its scandalous practice of bringing potential terrorists into the United States on the ruse that they are political refugees.
This practice has led to dozens of, mostly Al-Shabaab related, cases in which the new arrivals or their offspring returned to Somalia to join one of the most gruesome “holy wars” on the planet, rivaling the barbarity of that practiced by ISIS. [please refer to our 2013 piece, William Mayer, What The Media Refuses To Print - "Jihadist Ritual Murder and Mutilation at the Mall", PipeLineNews.org]
Though the feds made the usual, insanely stupid remarks that the incident has “nothing to do with immigration or Somalia, etc.” despite their tendency to finance, fight and recruit for FTOs, it should be obvious to all that, “Houston, we have a problem here.”[Read More]
State Department Plans To “Resettle” Syrians In Spartanburg, SC: Obama Funds Catholic Immigration Effort
By WILLIAM MAYER
April 18, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – It should come as no surprise that the Catholic Church, in the U.S. governed by the U.S. Conference Of Catholic Bishops, is receiving significant funding from Team Obama to “resettle” alleged refugees [primarily of the Islamic faith], too many of whom are simply illiterate foreign born leeches who know a good thing when they see it. Once upon American soil, these hapless souls quickly fall prey to social manipulators, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, labor unions and the ACLU who use these wretches as cannon fodder to advance their interlocking agendas. [Note: As an example of the incestuous financial arrangement between government and the Catholic Church, according to a Forbes Magazine study, Catholic Charities, USA is the largest charity in the United States. In 2012 the organization's total revenue was $4.337 billion. Of this, the amount supplied by the government was $2.832 billion in funding, fully 2/3rds of total receipts]
Within the federal government, most of the decisions to relocate foreign populations are, for some reason being made by the Department of State, perhaps the most dysfunctional, idiosyncratic and corrupt of all cabinet level departments…and that’s saying a lot.
It has been the State Department’s practice that rather than attempting to integrate these “arriving” populations [many of which are unfamiliar with running water and inside sanitary facilities] in some logical manner within pre-existing communities, more often than not, hundreds and sometimes many thousand are just dumped upon unsuspecting American cities and towns which are then expected to house, clothe, feed and provide for the basics needed to sustain life. In the majority of cases State doesn’t even inform the localities affected to be expecting the deluge of foreign born immigrants.
According to federal statute, these new arrivals can become citizens merely on the strength of having lived here for five years, the quickest pathway to full citizenship available.
States’ charter in these matters is breathtaking. Please note that not only is State making decisions which materially alter the demographics of America, it also makes decisions about U.S. population policies using guidelines developed not by Congress, the judiciary or even the president, but the United Nations.
“The Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration provides aid and sustainable solutions for refugees, victims of conflict and stateless people around the world, through repatriation, local integration, and resettlement in the United States. PRM also promotes the United States' population and migration policies . More about PRM»” [source, U.S. State Department, also see, Population, What are the Issues?]
We have written extensively about the specifics of one aspect of these resettlement programs for nearly ten years, specifically that of the U.S. State Department wholesale importing of Somalis and almost literally dropping them off without any prior notice to the community [please refer to William Mayer, Beila Rabinowitz, Are Minneapolis Taxi Fares Going To Support Al-Qaeda? , PipeLineNews.org October 6, 2006].[Read More]
Mr. Obama Are You Listening Now? ISIS Releases HD Movie: We Will Burn America
April 16, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – First, props to the Clarion Project which alerted us to this item.
We hope that someone within America’s dysfunctional national security apparatus alerts the Golfer in Chief that his JV jihadist team, ISIS has a new 15 minute movie in which the terrorist group threatens to burn America to the ground.
The graphic film [released 4.10.15] is expertly produced in HD. It’s broadcast quality bespeaks the seriousness with which threats by ISIS must be taken. These people are professionals. Indeed they are butchers, but their technology is approaching the point where only inept and foolish people will disregard the threat.
Unfortunately Washington, DC is filled with moral cowards, on both sides of the proverbial aisle, but none approach the level of sheer reckless abandon as does President Barack Hussein Obama.
Below a video clip from the film, please note, this is a video and does not do justice to the quality of the entire production, a link to which is provided below:
In the video, the group claims that America is no longer safe, nor are its fighting forces. It is calling upon homegrown “mujahideen” to launch terror attacks at will.
Some quotes from the movie:
"We will burn America"
“But today, it’s time for payback”
“Wallaahi [Allah] you won’t see from us but strength and harshness”
“Today, Muslims have a state, a caliphate, that doesn’t recognize except slitting the throats of the Disbelievers who refuse to pay the Jizya.”
ISIS claims it has the technical ability to hack into “secure” defense networks at will using recent breaches of Western media as examples. Furthermore ISIS makes the claim that it was able to hack into CENTCOM.
Mr. Obama’s JV team has now made it to the final four. Filled with a palpable a rage not seen since Medieval times ISIS is fully committed, mind and heart, sacralized by the Qur’an, to carry out its plan to burn America to the ground.

Obama’s “Dreamers” – ISIS Camp Just South Of U.S. Border?
April 16, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Various news sources are reporting that ISIS, the Syrian based jihadist group whose grotesque violence and crimes against humanity are happening so frequently and in such numbers that the mind reels, has set up camp in Northern Mexico, just miles from the US border.
Are these the alleged “dreamers” to whom Team O is openly offering asylum, free benefits and legal aid?
Perhaps, with this bunch anything is possible, but let’s look a little closer at the situation itself.
To judge by the furious efforts of Congressman Beto O’Rourke [D, TX] to cover-up/deny what could be a huge embarrassment to the administration, given it’s characterization just months ago that ISIS was part of the “JV team” and it’s failure to engage the largest jihadist army in the world, there may well be quite a bit of truth to the allegations, despite the young Congressman’s championing of landmark legislation such as H.R. 5267: Pet and Women Safety Act of 2014.
According to O’Rourke the tremendous national security threat which would be created by an ISIS outpost anywhere in the Western Hemisphere, let alone one just a few miles out of El Paso, Texas pales in comparison to the damage this presence would do to the unimpeded flow of illegal Mexicans with whom the Representative somehow identifies.
“Stories like these are good at scaring people and getting attention for those who spread them. But they are terrible for the country's image of the border, for El Paso's ability to recruit talent, and for our region's opportunity to capitalize on the benefits of being the largest bi-national community in the world.” [source, U.S. Rep. O'Rourke refutes latest ISIS in Mexico rumors, shows decades-long rumors of terrorists in Mexico ]We are amazed that O’Rourke could even make such a statement with a straight face but then the supporters of open borders are a strange lot unto themselves [Read More]
Bacon Attack At Oklahoma Mosque
April 15, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – In what could go down as the worst incident of Islamophobia yet to take place in the United States, local news sources are reporting that an Edmond, Oklahoma city mosque fell victim to a heinous pork attack sometime over the weekend.
“Before Sunday prayer service, raw bacon was discovered by a child at a local mosque.” [source, Dallas Franklin, “It’s really disgusting,” Vandals target Muslim mosque in possible hate crime ]
Images taken at the scene of the incident show what are apparently two strips of bacon which were deposited in a doorway, no doubt with evil intent and they did indeed seem to be uncooked.
Muslims are forbidden by the Qur’an from partaking in products made of or containing meat from swine, an unclean animal in their eyes.
As was to be expected, the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] a rather notorious Islamist organization in its own right, but a great friend of the Obama administration nonetheless, was quick to grab the closest podium and bleed rage…[paraphrasing] that the “attack” was a total outrage, a hate crime and…well you get the message.
Note: never stand between a CAIR rep and an open mic…
Perhaps though, the event can be seen in more positive terms.[Read More]
Turkey Must Never Be Allowed To Join The European Union
By EMERSON VERMAAT
April 15, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – It’s been one hundred years [April 24, 1915] since the Armenian genocide began in Turkey. The Ottoman Empire was in decline and the Ottoman government wanted to exterminate the two million strong Armenian Christian community. About one-and-a-half million Armenian Christians were killed or died from starvation. So many Armenians, even children, were thrown into the river Euphrates that the water turned red. Women were raped, their throats were subsequently slashed or they were sold as sex slaves. Christian girls were crucified, numerous men were shot dead, bayoneted or hanged. Armenian houses and properties were confiscated. It was not very different from the way the ruthless “Islamic State” barbarians deal with Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria today.
Subsequent Turkish governments invariably denied that the Armenians were massacred by the army or by death squads. And for decades the world didn’t seem to care about it either. That is why Hitler said in August 1939: “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”
This was one of the reasons why Hitler felt encouraged to execute his plan to exterminate millions of Jews in Europe.
Pope Francis recently called the Armenian genocide “the first genocide of the Twentieth Century.” The Turkish government was really upset. As the Wall Street Journal reported: “Turkey, which has long rejected the term genocide to describe the killings, swiftly called its ambassador to the Vatican back to Ankara for consultations after the Pope’s remarks. Turkey’s foreign ministry also summoned the Vatican’s envoy to Ankara, informing him that the government was ‘disappointed and saddened’ by the pontiff’s comments, according to Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency.”
During World War I, Turkey, then known as “the Ottoman Sultanate” or “Ottoman Caliphate”, sided with the Germans. But the Germans and the Turks lost the war. A new Turkish leader emerged after the war. His name was Mustafa Kemal, after 1934 also known as Kemal Atatürk (“Father of the Turks”). The sultanate was abolished in 1922 and the caliphate and its shari’a courts were abolished in March 1924. Atatürk became the first president of the new Turkish republic in October 1923. Atatürk was a military man during World War I. There is no evidence that he was involved in the Armenian genocide himself. But he did not stop the genocide either, and after the First World War he and his movement did play a role in suspending war crimes trials.
On the other hand Kemal Atatürk strongly opposed Islamic radicalism. He wanted Twentieth Century Turkey to be a modern, secular and pro-Western state. He banned religion based clothing such as the veil. Women were allowed to become members of parliament. Atatürk and his successors emphasized that the Turkish military and state should be strong enough to resist any takeover by religious fanatics – who had and still have a strong backing in the conservative countryside. After the Second World War Turkey became a strong ally of the United States and Israel, although many conservative Turks as well as a lot of Turkish immigrants in Europe espoused anti-Semitism.[Read More]
Islamic Jihad, Cultural Marxism and the West
By WILLIAM MAYER
June 9, 2015 – San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – While the danger posed by jihadist groups such as ISIS naturally comes to mind when thinking about keeping the American homeland secure, the universe of threats isn't limited to organizations which wage kinetic, irregular warfare against the Western democracies.
Our enemies – both foreign and domestic – are resourceful. Fully realizing that they would be overmatched in a direct, military confrontation with Uncle Sam or for that matter Britain’s John Bull, those who seek to destroy us have adopted a strategy which has, to a greater degree than many realize, already proven successful.
The question being examined here is elemental, just how secure is the entity we call Western Civilization itself?
Understanding the gravity of the issue, our analysis begins with one of the most consequential [though little known] legal cases of this era, the landmark federal terror prosecution, "United States of America v. Holy Land Foundation For Relief And Development, et al," Case No. 3:04-CR-240-G, November 30, 2005. Also see 2004 DOJ announcement Holy Land Foundation Leaders, Accused of Providing Material Support to Hamas Terrorist Organization.
It was a long and complex undertaking, uncovering the funding structure established in the United States which channeled at least $12 million directly to the "Palestinian"1. terrorist group, HAMAS. After being unable to render a verdict in the first trial, a streamlined case was prepared for the second prosecution. The result of which found all of the defendants guilty on a combined total of 108 charges. Of note, one of those convicted was Ghassan Elashi. Elashi had helped found the Texas chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations and was already serving a long prison term, having been convicted in another terror-related case, U.S. v. InfoCom, when the Holy Land decision was handed down.
The sheer volume of evidence submitted by the government at trial was overwhelming to the point of being intimidating, but for terror researchers and national security professionals it was a treasure trove of critical new information. For the first time it became possible to understand the dimensions of a paradigm shifting new player in the game, a process whereby the jihad could be carried on without a shot being fired.
Two exhibits in particular, showed how all-encompassing this strategy is and how many domestic Muslim Brotherhood/HAMAS linked organizations are involved in an effort to subvert the United States.
A. 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.
[Note: both CAIR and ISNA are considered valuable partners by the Obama White House despite their odious connection to the Muslim Brotherhood/HAMAS. Please refer to Steve Emerson and John Rossomando, A Red Carpet for Radicals at the White House, Investigative Project on Terrorism][Read More]
Now It Can Be Told: One Year Later: Where Are “Barry and Michelle’s” Girls?
April 14, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – “I abducted your girls. By Allah, I have the right to sell these girls as slaves…There is a market for selling humans,” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said with a diabolical smile. This threat was issued in a video message on May 6. Boko Haram means “Western education is sinful.” It is an extremely violent and dangerous African terrorist organization linked to Al-Qaeda. They demand the enforcement of Shari’a law in northern Nigeria and are against Christians and education for girls. “Kill, kill, kill, kill!” said the ruthless Boko Haram leader in another video message. Those he wants dead are the Christians, all of them. Unless they convert to Islam straightaway.
It was on April 14 that well armed Boko Haram jihadists stormed the village of Chibok in the northern Borno state. It happened in the night and it was very dark. They entered the sleeping quarters of the local secondary school and abducted about 276 largely Christian girls. Some fifty girls managed to escape.
About 130 abducted girls were shown in a video message posted on May 12. All of them had apparently been forced to convert to Islam and were wearing Islamic clothes and reciting Koranic texts. They were scared to death. Abubakar Shekau said: “These girls remain with us until the Nigerian government releases our brothers and sisters being held in various detention facilities across the country.”
The girls were probably hidden in a nearby forest, not far from the porous Nigerian-Camerounese border. Reports from people living in the forest “say Boko Haram fighters are sharing the girls, conducting mass marriages, selling them each for $ 12. One community leader explained the practice as ‘a medieval kind of slavery.’”
Wole Soyinka, a Nigerian who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1986, told CNN that Abubakar Shekau is a “homicidal maniac,” the abduction of nearly 300 defenseless girls is a “monstrosity, it is Fascism.” It is not just “a Nigerian problem,” he said. I’m calling for the international community, the United Nations – this is a global problem. And a foothold is being very deeply entrenched in West-Africa.” [source, Emerson Vermaat, Islam and Sex Slavery, May 19, 2014, PipeLineNews.org]
Immediately the WH went on the offensive to “find our girls.”
After consulting with top aides, his national security team and of course WH jester Valerie Jarrett, the president and his vp Michelle were visibly outraged [word has it that the president broke his second favorite putter over a bronze bust of Lincoln, from whom he often sought advice]. Immediately the order was transmitted to the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) that it launch the United States’ most fearsome weapon…the Twitter hashtag.
So controversial was the move, the World Court in the Hague was called into emergency session with many European nations objecting to “Obama’s ruthless disregard for the Geneva Conventions, international law and presumption of innocence on behalf of the misunderstood Boko Haram. This brutal weapon must not be used.”
But Team O pressed on, telling the august body to buzz off, as WH scribes feverishly Tweeted ‘till their fingers bled.[Read More]
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. [source, Ayatollah Khamenei Warns Saudis of Dire Repercussions of Yemen Invasion]
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. [source, Scott Gration, Former Ambassador: Look Beyond Garissa Attack to See Progress in Kenya, Time]
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]
