Secular Christian Jihad
May 31, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The story itself, isn’t new. Since 9/11 Muslim Brotherhood front groups and individuals have made a concerted [and somewhat successful] effort to convince the citizens of the United States - despite the fact that the September attacks which claimed nearly 3,000 lives were undertaken exclusively by 19 Muslim conspirators - that Islam is the aggrieved party in this relationship.
The upshot of this has seen a massive realignment of the legacy media so that rather than “slander” Islam by telling the truth about its historically predatory nature and current agenda of mass butchery, most news rooms now self-censor, gleefully becoming dhimmis in the process.
Rather than “speaking truth to power,” today’s jounos have beaten their word processors into swords and girded their loins in the armor of a sycophantic jihadism, self-enrolling as agents of Shari’a enforcement. This is a practice whereby no action may be taken which might potentially “insult” Mohammed or worse, rile the ever irritable Muslim population of the world.
To their great discredit, American churches have been at the forefront of enabling this suicidal blindness, engaging in what they call “faith sharing,” or more properly, a one-way conversation in which Islam is elevated and Christianity and Judaism are soiled.
This is all part of the great culture war in which the West has been embroiled for over 100 years, the outcome of which appears to be of little concern among our intellectual, political and religious leaders. There is nothing really subtle about the process and when claims are made as to the desirability of “sharing” with Islamic cultures, it usually doesn’t take much effort to debunk them.
For example, the Deseret News Service, recently published a piece [Sarah Mikati, Interfaith groups that prove religious harmony is possible ] in which it is claimed that:
“And lastly, nation[sic] and international interfaith efforts to combat Islamophobia have been carried out by multiple groups, such as the Islamic Society of North America's Office for Interfaith and Community Alliances. The organization counters misconceptions and breaks down barriers through interfaith dialogue, social work with other religious groups and partnering with other organizations and coalitions…”
What this apparently terminally ignorant journo fails to mention, assuming Ms. Mikati is even aware of the fact, is that the Islamic Society of North America, ISNA, has been identified by the U.S. Department of Justice as having ties with the Arabic terrorist group [created by the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood] HAMAS.[Read More]
Beware of Terrorists Disguised as Asylum Seekers
By EMERSON VERMAAT
Translated from the Dutch by Beila Rabinowitz
May 22, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The terror organization Islamic State (IS) has long threatened that they will send jihad fighters disguised as asylum seekers to Europe. In the middle of February an IS fighter announced from Libya that: "We will conquer Rome.” He pointed in the direction of the Mediterranean Sea with his knife. Security services have long been taking into account that radical Muslims can be found in the midst of the hundreds of thousands of boot refugees from the Islamic world and Africa.
This is not something new. In April 2001 the then Internal Security Services BVD (now the AIVD) warned of "Islamist war veterans" posing as people who "are looking for asylum or illegal migrants who seek refuge in Western countries who will attempt to continue the fight or support it.” In 1988 the BVD warned against Egyptian, Tunisian and Algerian terrorists who will gain entry into Western countries via the asylum channel and will then count of the support of local people who share their ideology.
In March 1996 a conference about fighting terrorism took place in the Egyptian sea resort of Sharm al- Sheikh. The Egyptian government was worried about radical Muslims who had been granted asylum in England. Around November 1995 this was about one thousand people. A number of them appeared to be involved in the preparation for terror attacks. The then British Prime Minister John Major declared shortly after the conference that he would make the rules for granting asylum stricter, but nothing was done.[Read More]
Air Defense Systems Shipped To Syria from Benghazi, Obama Knew Attack Planned 10 Days in Advance
May 20, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Along with the post 9/11/12 classified administration communication to which we referred yesterday [ BREAKING! Smoking Gun: Hillary and Stevens Running Weapons to Syrian Jihadists , PipeLineNews.org] confirming the transfer of weapons from Libya to Syria by Ambassador Chris Stevens under direction of his boss, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, there is much more.
We additionally learn:
“The weapons shipped from Libya to Syria during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, ad 125 and 155 mm howitzer “missiles.” [our emphasis] The numbers for each weapon were estimated to be: 500 sniper rifles, 100 RPG launchers with 300 total rounds, and approximately 400 howitzers “missiles” [200 ea 125mm and 200 ea 155mm…”
Far more troubling, the inter-agency notes positively confirm, as we published two years ago, the Ansar al-Shari’a terrorists were in possession of significant numbers of man portable air defense systems [MANPAD] of type SA7 and SA 23/4 were The alpha-numeric ID information is the standard nomenclature that NATO uses to designate Russian air defense missile systems. These weapons were undoubtedly “liberated” from Gaddafi’s stockpiles, hardware delivered by the Soviets/Russians during the period of time when the two countries were allied.
“They have SA-7 and SA-23/4 MANPADS … they train almost every day focusing on religious lessons and scriptures including three lessons a day of jihadist ideology…”
The SA-7 has a range of approx 1000-1500M and the newer SA-24 [the Grinch] can strike targets as far away as 6,000M [see, David L. Adamy, EW 104: Electronic Warfare Against a New Generation of Threats , p. 124-125]
These weapons should have been at the top of the list, ID’d as potential threats and immediately secured in wake of the takedown of Muamar Gaddafi, another sign of Obama’s incredibly amateurish understanding of defense policy.[Read More]
BREAKING! Smoking Gun: Hillary and Stevens Running Weapons to Syrian Jihadists
May 19, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Two years ago, almost to the day we ran a story [see, William Mayer, What Difference Does It Make? - The Mysterious Ambassador Chris Steves] republished below this article, which laid out in detail why Chris Stevens was in Benghazi, Libya and what his boss, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expected him to do there on what was supposed to be a deep cover assignment that went a little sideways.
We can compress the major thesis of the piece into a few paragraphs:
"The entire Benghazi diplomatic gambit has proven to be an unmitigated disaster [as has Obama's fairy-tale "reset" of relations with the Muslim world].
1. It resulted in the rise of an Islamist as president of Libya
2. Stevens' action strengthened the hand of jihadist groups in the region because the fall of Gadhaffi resulted in loosing of probably 20,000 surface to air missiles on to the world's terrorist black market as well making Libya's now battle tested mujahideen available to work their mischief in hot-spots such as Syria.
3. The arms transfer to Syria via Turkey went primarily to al-Qaeda main, its many affiliates and similarly motivated jihadists in that country...tantamount to an endorsement of Islamic jihad by Team Obama."
What makes this story especially relevant today is that Tom Fitton’s Judicial Watch has, via numerous FOIA requests done what no Congressional committee has yet been able [or wanted] to do, connect the dots and prove that Stevens presence in of all godforsaken places, Benghazi, was required in order to transfer heavy weapons and ordnance from Libya to what were then called the Syrian rebels, but now more clearly identified as the maelstrom of jihadist groups from which ISIS emerged.[Read More]
Domestic ISIS Threat Worsens, Gangster Warfare in Waco: Team Obama Moves to Castrate Police
May 19, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – With the domestic threat of violence posed by ISIS, outlaw biker gangs and a near war going on at America’s southern border increasing exponentially, Team O is responding by attempting to castrate U.S. law enforcement.
As if multiple “investigations” against local police in Ferguson, Baltimore and a host of other American cities weren’t enough [this includes the police forces in some large U.S. cities such as Oakland, CA which have already been placed under federal receivership] to give LE second thoughts when it comes to maintaining public order in the face of ethnically charged – race baited - civil disturbances, there is more.
Today Barack Hussein Obama announced that his administration would, without any apparent statutory authority, terminate the transfer of military surplus vehicles and other hardware to police departments around the nation.
“President Obama has banned the sale of some kinds of military equipment to local law enforcement agencies, following widespread criticism of a paramilitary-like response to riots in a St. Louis suburb last August. In doing so, Obama put his stamp on the recommendations of a multi-agency federal working group that endorsed a ban on sales of some military equipment and providing more training, supervision and oversight of others.” [source, Obama Bans Some Military Sales to Police , USA Today]
The irony of this move should be obvious to even the most casual observer, since it was DOJ enforced over-restraint by the Ferguson and Baltimore police departments which allowed the recent mass inner-city violence within these localities to flare out of control.
Confronted by brick throwing mobs of looters and arsonists, cops were ordered to stand down and to remove the most basic protective riot gear thus reducing what are supposed to be the first line in maintaining public order to the status of vulnerable observers with targets painted on their backs.[Read More]
What Difference Does It Make? - The Mysterious Ambassador Chris Stevens
By WILLIAM MAYER
Reprint of May 15, 2013 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Ok, it's clear now to anyone who happened to watch more than a few minutes of Wednesday's testimony by State Department officials before Darrell Issa's House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that Team Obama has, to use the vernacular, lied its ass off in an effort to cover-up the Benghazi affair.
However perhaps the most important question - aside from investigating the actual terrorist attack on the Benghazi compound by elements of Ansar al-Shari'a - remains unanswered...why on earth was J. Christopher Stevens in Benghazi, Libya in the first place?
At the time of his clandestine arrival, Benghazi was one of the strongholds for the rebels - i.e., jihadists attempting to overthrow then dictator Moammar Gadhaffi.
Stevens had not yet been named as an ambassador [his tragically short ambassadorial career spanned a little over 90 days from June 7, 2012 to September12, 2012].
So why was he there?
Stevens arrived in the dead of night, ferried to Libya in a commercial Greek cargo ship, a very unusual way to enter a country if one's purpose is to begin a high level diplomatic assignment.[Read More]
Assoc. Professor Stephen Amberg, Islamist Tool of the Day
May 18, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – In an incredibly dull-witted piece authored by one Stephen Amberg [unremarkably, Stephen Amberg is a member of the board of the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas . He also is an associate professor of political science at the University of Texas at San Antonio ] he goes after Pamela Geller’s AFDI, hammer and tong for what appears to be in his estimation, malicious exercise of the First Amendment.
Amberg charges [see, Protect 1st Amendment, criticize provocateurs , MySA] Geller’s organization with being ”a mirror image” of the two jihadi yahoos who attacked her free speech event in Garland, Texas, and thankfully were quickly rendered room temperature by an alert member of Texas LE, where apparently marksmanship is still valued.
The central criticism that the author makes is:
“…that attitude makes AFDI the mirror image of the extremists they claim to abhor…Our defense of the First Amendment does not mean we have to defend the AFDI’s tactics. Nothing in the First Amendment requires us to refrain from pointing the finger at leaders of the AFDI, blaming them for trying to provoke a violent response and deliberately engaging in rhetoric that demonizes Muslims and the Islamic religion. To the contrary, because government cannot censor, we must defend our values…”
Note that Amberg can’t bring himself to use the term “Islamic terrorism,” we assume this is self-censorship…
Amberg’s is an odd opinion to have; attacking someone who is expressing First Amendment freedom of expression likening the attack to defending said Amendment. It’s especially suspect given the ACLU’s record of supporting the most expansive view of the First Amendment imaginable in the courts.[Read More]
Ramadi Falls to ISIS, Anbar in Chaos and US “Coalition” Flies 7 Sorties, Total
May 17, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – As Team Obama continues its ridiculous pretend war [7 sorties flown in a major battle?] against ISIS, Iraqi defense forces have suffered another disastrous and humiliating military defeat as the key city of Ramadi in Iraq’s Anbar province has fallen to the group.
This follows a long established pattern; once under attack the army simply turns tail and runs away shrieking like little girls leaving its heavy weapons, ammunition and intel behind which are then used to further strengthen ISIS.
A few days ago though, the administration was in the fist-pumping mode, trying to make it appear that the killing of a Syrian ISIS leader - Abu Sayyaf, - by a Spec-Ops team constituted a major victory when many observers believe that it will have zero effect on the battlefield. The leadership structure of ISIS and many other al-Qaeda franchises has necessarily become so decentralized that its “leaders” are like Legos, when one breaks, there are dozens more waiting in the breach.
While much was made by the administration of the “liberation” of Tikrit a month ago, the majority of the U.S. media failed to note that it was Iranian backed Shias who did the fighting. The net outcome being an increased presence of Iranian military power in a country which is openly being subverted by the Ayatollocracy. Sunni local forces were begging the U.S. for weapons to no avail, so they were driven into the ready hands of the Shia militias which are at this point have become just another of Iran’s proxy armies.[Read More]
Imam [and] U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz: Tsarnaev, “Bombing Not a Religious Crime”
May 15, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Just moments ago, the jury in the Boston Marathon bombing case announced that it would impose the death penalty on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who had earlier been convicted of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing which killed 3 and wounded over 200.
Imam Carmen M. Ortiz, who oversaw the prosecution, also serving as the U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts, immediately issued a fatwa on the matter, stating that, “the bombing was not a religious crime…”
Though not available for comment regarding Ortiz’ religious ruling, Tsarnaev did however compose a note while in flight during the post-bombing manhunt which resulted in his apprehension.
In it, “Dzhokhar takes responsibility for the Boston Marathon bombings, calling the attacks retribution for the United States' military action against innocent Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq. An excerpt from the note reads: "When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims." Dzhokhar also wrote that he didn't mourn the death of his brother, Tamerlan, who he deemed a martyr in paradise.” [source, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Biography.com]
Ms. Ortiz is typical of the type of DOJ appointment Team Obama makes, she’s been a political hack since first working with Eric Holder:
Her Wiki bio reads in part:
“In the summer of 1980, Ortiz interned in the Public Integrity Section of the United States Department of Justice with Eric Holder, who later become U.S. Attorney General. She also worked on judicial reform in Guatemala with Harvard professor, former Watergate prosecutor, and former deputy attorney general Philip Heymann…From 1981 to 1983, Ortiz was an attorney with the United States Department of Justice Criminal Division.”
In 2009 Ted Kennedy suggested to the administration that Ortiz should be a U.S. Attorney and upon nomination by Team Obama, she was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on a unanimous vote.
As of this writing her training as an imam is not clear but as we know the determination of an Islamic scholar trumps the mere statements of people like Tsarnaev, who was obviously just a confused young man driven to desperate action by the greedy, Islamophobic and colonial actions of the United States.
After all…Allah knows best.[Read More]
Obama – Always the Smartest Guy in the Room
May 15, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – It’s an element of faith within the leftist cultural elite that the president is always the smartest guy in any room or gathering. To these folks, Obama’s cranial capacity and vast expertise is so overwhelming that it can cause fainting spells and tingling leg syndrome.
Seeing him in action though tends to cast doubts on the assertion, consider the 57 states he campaigned in, his reference to [phonetically] “corpse men” at a prayer breakfast, his JV team statement referencing ISIS and his identification of the killer hemorrhagic African disease as “Ebolee.”
So it wasn’t entirely surprising when meeting with officials from Saudi Arabia [King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud refused to participate in protest of the president’s foreign policy] that Mr. Obama found himself more than a little befuddled

Jew Hating Islamist Group - Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions [BDS] - Defeated In Important New York Case
May 14, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – An initiative by the pro-jihadist group, Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions again Israel [BDS], directed against the New York entity, GreenStar Food Co-op, suffered a major defeat last night due to an aggressive push-back by the LawFare Project.
The LawFare Project is a civil litigation organization dedicated to eliminating "the use of the law as a weapon of war” and/or “the abuse of Western laws and judicial systems to achieve strategic military or political ends.” [source, LawFare Project]
A press release issued by the group states that a, “national effort to push a referendum calling to boycott Israeli products was rejected on Tuesday night, signaling a critical victory for the campaign to counter the discriminatory and unlawful Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (BDS) in the United States. This attempt to discriminate against Israeli entities was rejected unanimously by the GreenStar Food Co-Op in Ithaca, New York.”
Despite statements to the contrary, BDS’ basic motivation is Jew-hatred. It has, as seems to increasingly be the case with Islamist organizations, closely allied itself with the Marxist left and is supported by the likes of former Black Panther Party memberAngela Davis and Code Pink’s Castro loving Medea Benjamin.
BDS’s strong arm tactics were stopped cold when the Lawfare Project made Green-Star Foods’ legal counsel aware that supporting such a boycott could prove risky legally, as New York anti-discrimination law states:
“It shall be an unlawful discriminatory practice (i) for any person to discriminate against, boycott or blacklist, or to refuse to buy from, sell to or trade with, any person, because of the race, creed, color, national origin [emphasis added] or sex of such person, or of such person's partners, members, stockholders, directors, officers, managers, superintendents, agents, employees, business associates, suppliers or customers, or (ii) for any person willfully to do any act or refrain from doing any act which enables any such person to take such action.”
CAIR Stealth Candidate for Sacramento School Board - Basim Elkarra - Gets His Ass Kicked In Election
May 13, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Professional Islamist Basim Elkarra, Exec. Director of Sacramento CAIR, was trounced in yesterday’s Sacramento, CA, Twin Rivers School Board race.
Pulling barely over 40% of the vote, it wasn’t even close. This despite a relatively huge war-chest funded by Sacto’s top Marxist legislators and the local media’s.fawning coverage of his campaign.
As this writer noted in an April 29 piece, referencing a mysterious flyer directed at Mr. Elkarra’s candidacy:
“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….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.” [source, William Mayer, Basim Elkarra, CAIR Sacramento Director, Runs For Twin Rivers School Board , PipeLineNews.org]
Elkarra has a history of making unsubstantiated claims regarding bigotry he has allegedly suffered, below from a 2007 dust-up.
“…[Paula]…ZAHN: The next story we're bringing out in the open is about a man who says he's working to overcome the intolerance felt by many Muslims in America. His efforts were recently singled out for praise by a U.S. senator. But that praise has now been taken back and replaced by controversial allegations that the organization he represents is actually supporting terrorists.
ZAHN (on camera): Basim Elkarra says he's received hate mail, including a death threat, since the controversy erupted. Senator Boxer's office tells CNN the FBI has investigated and the death threat is not credible.
ZAHN: A statement from the senator quotes a former FBI counter terrorism official as saying CAIR's activities, quote, "effectively give aid to international terrorist groups." [source, Paula Zahn Show, transcript January 8, 2007, CNN]
CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator/joint venturer is U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation for Foundation and Development [a fraudulent Muslim charity] the nation’s largest and most successful prosecution of HAMAS’ domestic funding operation.[Read More]
Alarming New Study on European Islamic Jew Hatred
May 12, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – In a broad review of previously conducted surveys [hat tip to the Investigative Project on Terrorism for originally publishing this, please refer to Günther Jikeli, Antisemitic Attitudes among Muslims in Europe: A Survey Review , ISGAP Senior Research Fellow, Moses Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies, Potsdam University] the author draws the conclusion that anti-Semitism, and actions related to it are rapidly increasing in Europe and that Muslims figure disproportionately as perpetrators of anti-Jewish violence.
Dr. Jikeli correlates the incidence of this violent tendency within the European Muslim population as being linked to high degrees of “fundamentalism.”
“Since the early twenty-first century, Muslims have emerged as a new group of antisemitic perpetrators in Western Europe. Perpetrators of the most extreme cases of violence against European Jews in recent years were Muslims, and they partly justified their actions by their interpretation of Islam.”
The degree to which the Continent’s Islamic demographic harbors anti-Jewish sentiments is several orders of magnitude greater than it is among non-Muslims.
“[this study]…showed that Muslims in France, Germany, and Spain were twice as likely as non-Muslims to harbor negative views of Jews. The factor was almost seven for Great Britain. The difference is even greater concerning “very unfavorable” views of Jews. In 2006, Muslims were three to ten times more likely to harbor “very unfavorable” views of Jews than did non-Muslims in France, Germany, and Great Britain.”
Those who self-identify as being “practicing” Muslims are far more likely to harbor these sociopathic viewpoints, while those who are born into Muslim families but profess no particular religion are the least likely to harbor anti-Jewish sentiments.Though this linkage between high levels of Islamic religiosity and bigotry appears in all European countries which were studied, those within the culture but don’t practice the faith are still far more likely to have negative feelings about Jews than do those in the general population.[Read More]
Video Briefing: Ann Corcoran on Islamic Colonial Jihad
May 7, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – As we most recently noted [source, William Mayer, State Department Plans To “Resettle” Syrians In Spartanburg, SC: Obama Funds Catholic Immigration Effort, PipeLineNews.org, 4.18.15], the U.S. State Dept., in collaboration with the U.N. and other NGO’s has been, for a very long time, involved in a program called “refugee resettlement.”
“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]”
Though lofty sounding, the effect of these programs have been devastating, both to the communities involved and of course to U.S national security in that it is from these insular communities that tomorrow’s jihadists are recruited.
“Americans began traveling to Somalia to join Al Shabaab in 2007, around the time the group stepped up its insurgency against Somalia's transitional government and its Ethiopian supporters, who have since withdrawn. At least 50 U.S. citizens and permanent residents are believed to have joined or attempted to join or aid the group since that time.” [source, Al-Shabaab’s American Recruits, ADL News]
The Center for Security Policy has done excellent work in researching this matter and have produced a short video by policy expert Ann Corcoran, Editor/Founder of Refugee Resettlement Watch.
The U.S. Department of State is a Labyrinthine, almost wholly independent rogue enterprise. It is largely held unaccountable, despite a history littered with hare-brained actions and policies that have materially damaged the security profile of the United States. Consider please that State has still not been held accountable for the Benghazi tragedy and the gun running operation [sending arms to Syrian jihadists] which likely precipitated the attack by Ansar al-Shari’a and subsequent death of four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens.[Read More]
How Real is the "Dirty Bomb" Threat?
By EMERSON VERMAAT
May 7, 2015 – Utrecht, Netherlands – PipeLineNews.org - European authorities are either unwilling or unable to control the mass Islamic migration coming from Africa and the Middle East, making the mafia organizations which largely control the process more powerful than the governments. These wealthy and ruthless criminals pose an extraordinary threat to European security and stability. Not only do these human traffickers operate outside Europe, their extensive criminal networks assist migrants to cross borders inside Europe. Even where there is a will, police and law enforcement are hardly able to tackle these huge problems and liberal politicians who refuse to act decisively, make matters worse. Intimidated by the migration maffias, they advocate a policy of open borders. People such as German President Joachim Gauck and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi are implicated in this process, the more they give in, the worse the outcome is going to be.
Last year, some 220,000 asylum-seekers crossed the Mediterranean Sea. This year the number is expected to be between 500,000 and 1 million. There is an additional “Balkan route” via Turkey, Bulgaria and Serbia to the “ Schengen” countries [26 Continental nations which essentially no longer have borders] especially Hungary. For example, in 2014, some 42,000 migrants from Syria, Afghanistan and other Muslim countries arrived in that country, with most of them then travelling on to Germany, Belgium, Holland and Scandinavia.
European cities can’t cope with this huge influx and local Muslim communities are more restive than ever. Too many second-generation Muslims feel attracted to jihadism which is reflected by the increased number of plots which have been thwarted since early 2014. Unfortunately, other spectacular attacks have not been prevented by Europe’s overburdened security and police services. In virtually all of these cases radical Muslims were involved. European interior ministers as well as chiefs of security and intelligence services have issued warnings, saying that the scale of the current threat is unprecedented.
Many of these asylum-seekers [especially those from Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Iran, Somalia, Northern Nigeria, Mali, Libya and Afghanistan] are also anti-Semitic. Thus the process imports the violent cultures of the immigrant’s homeland. As a result Jews are no longer safe in many European cities and many are simply leaving to escape the threat.
In some cases Muslim refugees threw Christians overboard when there was no space for all of them in the tiny boats or dinghies en-route to Italy, offering by way of defense, “here, we only pray to Allah!” Muslim asylum-seekers in Holland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Denmark, Norway and Sweden attacked and harassed other asylum-seekers who were Christians – targeting women in particular. Muslim converts to Christianity received numerous death threats and some of them were even brutally murdered.
Today, ISIS terrorists in Libya are openly threatening that they will conquer Rome and Southern Europe. ISIS terrorists also theatened to carry out so-called “dirty bomb” attacks in Europe and the United States.
A dirty bomb is not a nuclear [fission] weapon but a radiological dispersal device (RDD), combining radioactive material with conventional explosives.[Read More]
Khamenei: Nuke Talks Dead?
May 6, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Referring to what he termed warlike rhetoric, Iran’s “Supreme Leader” Khamenei in a speech today said the Ayatollocracy would not negotiate with the United States under threat of military action as a matter of principle.
"This is not acceptable that the opposite side continues making threats simultaneous with the talks," the Leader said, addressing a public meeting with teachers here in Tehran on Wednesday…Negotiation under the ghost of a threat is meaningless and the Iranian nation does not tolerate negotiation under the shadow of threat." [source, Leader Rejects Continued N. Talks under Threat, Fars News]
He continued on, in somewhat rambling remarks - at least as translated by Fars - stressing that it’s the U.S., rather than Iran that desperately needs to produce an agreement. He suggested that a deal was vital for the Obama administration which views a successful negotiation as a legacy issue.
Employing American rhetoric, Khamenei said that the U.S. “can’t do a damn thing,” with regard to physically attacking the nation, suggesting that the “threats” were made with the intention of rebuilding the president’s frayed relationship with Israel.
The kerfuffle arose over remarks delivered yesterday by Secty. Of State Kerry, who made mention of a potential military option in an almost offhanded manner.
Khamenei, of all people, knows Mr. Obama is a toothless tiger at this point in his presidency, having shown no inclination to initiate the use of military force anywhere on the globe.[Read More]
Midget Marxist Bobby Reichhhhh’s Utopian Wet Dream
May 6, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – We of course subscribe to dozens of newsletters from the dark side, so we can keep abreast of developments which threaten the national security of the United States.
So we have become aware that the Marxists at MoveOn are heavily partnering with the usual suspects in an effort to develop even more harmful and divisive policies. This is the historical pattern of internal subversion and the below polemic is emblematic of how these forces communicate a message intended to foment class warfare and social upheaval.
“Dear MoveOn member, I think the Republicans are wrong about an awful lot…[however they are good at knowing] how to stay on message… [their] message is simple: Government is the problem. If we just cut taxes and regulations, then voila! Prosperity will follow. It's wrong - dangerously wrong. But the echo chamber of conservative thinktanks, right-wing media, and Republican politicians repeats it over and over and over…we need to become as effective and disciplined in our messaging as the Republicans.
We've put together a platform with ten of the most powerful and important proposals to improve the lives of regular Americans… MoveOn's team of social media and viral video experts knows how to get these ideas out to millions of Americans…”
MoveOn is merely a mouthpiece for a constellation of progressive/Marxist organizations and their funders [such as George Soros] the intent of which is to further spread the message of perpetual revolutionary change/fundamental transformation of this society and that of the West.[Read More]
BREAKING - "Jihad Intel" Launched by the Middle East Forum
May 6, 2015 – Philadelphia, PA – PipeLineNews.org – The Middle East Forum has announced Jihad Intel, a project to provide U.S. law enforcement with detailed information on violent Islamist groups.
Jihad Intel, http://jihadintel.meforum.org, will provide LE tools to identify terrorists acting on behalf of Islam and to connect the dots before a terrorist incident takes place.
Not only does the FBI admit that the threat of ISIS attacks in the West is "not even close to being under control," but there are hundreds more jihadi organizations, with new ones forming continually. Most are active on social media, recruiting globally.
Each has its own identifying symbols. So, in response, Jihad Intel has established a public, gratis database of visual identifiers of over 125 Islamic terrorist groups – hundreds of emblems, flags, headbands, graffiti, propaganda, social media tags and other symbols used to incite Muslims to violence – with new groups and identifiers added continually.
Jihad Intel also provides background information on each terrorist organization, including a list of Western countries which have designated the organization as terrorist.
Law Enforcement and interested citizens are encouraged to join a gratis mailing list to receive intelligence bulletins on jihadist threats and information about future training seminars.
This effort also responds to the Obama administration's removal of references to Islam from law enforcement and national security training materials. "Political correctness impedes law enforcement," notes Daniel Pipes, president of the Middle East Forum, "but we empower the police to safeguard Americans from jihadis."[Read More]
CNN Peddles Horse Shit In Garland Jihad, Sides With Islamists
May 5, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – CNN International has published what strikes us as a pro-jihadist apologia regarding the recent attack on a Garland, Texas free speech event by two Muslim males, now conclusively tied to ISIS.
With a lead image depicting a heavily veiled Muslima holding a placard which reads “Blasphemy is not a human right,” one gets the impression that what will follow is going to be slanted, but even with that caveat taken into account the copy is so amazingly fawning that it’s crossed the line, far past dhimmi [acceptance of second-class citizenship by a conquered people] into the realm of pure da’wa [Islamic proselytization].
A few choice snippets:
“Violence over depictions of the Prophet Mohammed may mystify many non-Muslims, but it speaks to a central tenet of Islam: the worship of God alone.” [source, Why Images Of Mohammed Offend Muslims, CNN]
“In some ways, Islam was a reaction against Christianity, which early Muslims believed had been led astray by conceiving of Christ not as a man but as a God. They did not want the same thing to happen to Mohammed.” [source, ibid]
Let’s try to establish the facts of the matter which differ materially from CNN’s anti-Western, anti-Christian, bigoted stupidity.
Fact: there is nothing in the Qur’an which forbids depictions of Mohammed, nor is there generally a prohibition within the body of Islamic jurisprudence…until very recently. There is no “centrality” in dogma relating to this matter; images of Mohammed have been quite common throughout Muslim history which only makes sense given Mohammed’s looming omnipresence in Islam’s most sacred text.
But there is no reason to simply take our word for this assertion. Therefore we turn to Newsweek magazine, not generally regarded as a captive of “bigoted right-wing Islamophobes.”
“If we turn to Islamic law, there does not exist a single legal decree, or fatwa , in the historical corpus that explicitly and decisively prohibits figural imagery, including images of the Prophet. While more recent online fatwas can surely be found, the decree that comes closest to articulating this type of ban was published online in 2001 by the Taliban, as they set out to destroy the Buddhas of Bamiyan.” [source, Christiane Gruber, The Koran Does Not Forbid Images of the Prophet, Newsweek]
In case the reader might think we’re stacking the deck, consider NPR, which hardly has a reputation as a bastion of Muslim hatred:[Read More]
HAMAS Linked CAIR Attacks Garland Victims
May 4, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR, is an American Islamist group which was named as an unindicted co-conspirator/joint venturer in the landmark HAMAS terror funding case, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation as well as having been identified as being associated with HAMAS in post trial proceedings.
Please refer to - List of Unindicted Co-conspirators and/or Joint Venturers, as well as, Federal judge Jorge Solis’ determination regarding CAIR’s bona fides, “ 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 on Terrorism, U.S. District Court Filing]
With this in mind we find it typically brazen for the self-proclaimed “civil rights” group, to attack the Garland, Texas victims of Islamic jihad under color of a spurious “condemnation.”
"Unfortunately, human history shows us that hatred breeds more hatred and extremism leads to more extremism…Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Geert Wilders and the perpetrators of yesterday's attack all seek to provoke a downward spiral of mutual hostility and mistrust in America and around the world.” [source, CAIR website]
In the above paragraph CAIR implies that freedom of speech is provocative while it conflates Islamic terrorism with the peaceful actions of American citizens as they exercise their First Amendment rights.
Of course this is reprehensible, but it’s entirely in character with the organization. The real question which should be asked here is why are Muslims so easily driven to commit violent acts of insane rage and why is Islamic ideology so conducive to barbarism?[Read More]

NBC Philly, Pamela Geller Counters Attacks on AFDI Islamic Jew Hatred Bus Ads
May 3, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – In an on air debate of sorts between anti-jihad activist Pamela Geller and the local anchor a very reasoned explanation of the recent advertising campaign in Philadelphia, prominently displayed on the sides of public transportation busses, was put forth.
The anchor conducted himself with professionalism and Geller made the textbook correct case against the danger being posed by the encroachment of the Shari’a into American society.
In various places throughout the city, CAIR and the usual stealth jihadist suspects along with soft-headed “religious” spokespeople [who literally have no idea that the West is involved in a religious war, regardless of whether we choose to recognize it or not] whined about “bigotry, Islamophobia, intolerance, etc.”
True to form these illiberal liberals of course failed to mention the tremendous increase in Jew hatred across the globe, of course in the Middle East but most troublingly, in Europe from which Jews are literally fleeing to escape physical assaults.As we go to press on this matter, a shooting in Garland, Texas has occurred at a free speech event featuring caricatures of Mohammed. The event was apparently sponsored by Geller and Jihad Watch, we will follow up with a report on this matter. [Read More]
Iran’s Military Commander Instructs Nuke Negotiators That Country Will Not Allow Inspection
May 3, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – As Iran’s navy holds an American flagged cargo ship hostage and the country’s Yemeni proxy army, the Houthis seek complete control over the failed North African state, Iran’s Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, has once again made it clear that the theocratic dictatorship will under no circumstances permit the type of inspections which would be vital in any genuine effort to prevent an Iranian nuclear “breakout.”
Additionally the military strong-man tamped out hopes [however weak] that Iran might curtail its worldwide funding of terrorism.
We operate under no illusions, there is no agreement simply a meaningless, non-binding working document which will two major effects, neither of which are positive.
1. Free up at least $100B dollars in Iranian assets which have been temporarily “frozen” in the West as part of the sanction program, thus saving Iran’s ruined economy as well as providing a direct cash injection into the country’s nuclear weapons program.
2. Grant Mr. Obama one of his trademarked Pyrrhic victories which while it will materially degrade the status of U.S. national security will nonetheless allow this vainglorious president another opportunity to preen, prance around the stage and publicly spike the football to the delight of an adoring press.
Speaking of state controlled media, according to Iran’s Fars News Agency, Firouzabadi stated:
"’Iranian military officials are not allowed to let the foreigners go through the country's security-defense shield and fence,’ the General said reminding the recent remarks of Iranian Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei. ‘Iran's military officials are not at all allowed to stop the country's defense development and progress on the pretext of supervision and inspection and the country's defense development and capabilities should not be harmed in the talks. Our support for our brothers in the resistance (front) in different places should not be undermined in the talks at all,’ he added.” [source, Iranian Top Commander Declares Specific Redlines for Nuclear Deal, Fars News]
