Imam Tawhidi: ‘The American Government Will Regret Dealing With Linda Sarsour’

In the light of the truck attack in New York, Al Bawaba News asked Imam Tawhidi if the Mayor of New York should be held in some part responsible for the threat level in the city.

According to his Twitter page, the Australian Imam warned Mayor De Blasio of “extremist (Wahabist) fundamental teachings” in a letter dated February 2016.

Mohammad Tawhidi is a public figure of Iraqi origin, born in Iran but living in Australia. He is Muslim but it has been claimed that some of his ideas are anti-Muslim, in example that halal certification threatens the Australian way of life and that Palestine is a Jewish land.

Mayor De Blasio’s office was a direct contributor to controversial activist Linda Sarsour’s former project, the Arab American Association of New York, through the New York Mayor’s Fund.

Linda Sarsour is a left-wing social and political commentator whose comments on Islamic identity, gender and race have been accused by some of serving to drive a wedge between Muslim communities and Middle America.

In July 2016, Sarsour was invited to give an address to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) which typified American citizens that voted for Donald Trump as “fascists”, “white supremists” and “Islamophobes.”

“I hope that […] when we stand up to those who oppress our communities that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad. That we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or in the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House.” 

 

 

Her comments were later taken out of context by right-wing social media outlets, which accused her of calling for a violent “jihad” in America.

In an email to Al Bawaba, Imam Tawhidi suggested that the support for Sarsour from the American Left could backfire:

“I believe that there will come a time where American government officials will regret dealing with Linda Sarsour. Her loyalty belongs to her Islamic Authorities, not the USA.”

NYT Columnist Gets Torched For Pushing Gun Control Talking Points After NYC Terror Attack

with 2 comments

Nicholas Kristof stepped on a rake last night—and it wasn’t pretty. The New York Times columnist decided to go there on gun control when it was wholly unnecessary to do so. On Tuesday, 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov drove a rented Home Depot pickup truck through a bike path in lower Manhattan and plowed through bystanders and cyclists. Eight people are dead, close to dozen more injured and you’re going to give New York a pat on the back for having strict gun laws. This was possibly in response to Saipov exiting his truck holding fake guns. He was obviously trying to commit suicide by cop, but martyrdom was denied; the NYPD shot him but he’s alive (via CBS News):

Police and witnesses say a man deliberately drove a rented truck onto a busy bicycle path near the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan, killing eight people and injuring at least 12 others, then emerged from the vehicle screaming and brandishing imitation firearms before being shot by police. The suspect was wounded and taken into custody.

“This was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said about the attack — the deadliest act of terror in New York City since 9/11. He called it “a very painful day in our city.”

“Today there was a loss of innocent life in lower Manhattan,” NYPD commissioner James O’Neill said at a Tuesday press conference.

Law enforcement sources identified the suspect to CBS News as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, a 29-year-old truck driver who has lived in Tampa, Florida, and New Jersey. He came to the U.S. in 2010 from Uzbekistan.

In the aftermath of the attack, Kristof tweeted, “The NYC terrorist had a pellet gun and a paintball gun. Good thing that in NYC he couldn’t buy assault rifles, or the toll would be higher.” Dude, are you kidding me? First, yes—let’s breathe a sigh of relief that he didn’t use a gun. It’s not like he used a motor vehicle or anything (my Lord). Second, terrorists and criminals don’t follow the law (obviously), and Saipov wasn’t from New York, so what does strict gun laws have anything do with this incident? Did Kristof even read the Associated Press or any other news report prior to sending this tone-deaf tweet? If he didn’t, then it’s still inexcusable. This was a terrorist attack; it’s not the time to hold a study hall on gun control, man. Kristof got torched—and rightfully so. And the liberal media wonders why they’re not trusted. You think Kristof would’ve stopped commenting on gun policy after his misfire on the Las Vegas shooting.

Hypocritical radical Leftist Democrats

with one comment

Since when can the radical Leftist Democrats lecture the president on making politicizing statements concerning tragic events?

Within twenty-four hours of a mass shooting on October 1, 2017, in Las Vegas, Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) was on the floor of the US Senate calling for legislation to usurp the “rights” of Americans “to bear arms” protected by the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights:

 

 

On November 1, 2017, Sayfullo Saipov (a Muslim Uzbekistan national immigrant) killed eight people and injured eleven more by running them down with a truck on a bike path in New York City.

Now, Charles Schumer believes that he has the moral authority to lecture the president for using a tragedy to politicize a terrorist event. I think NOT!

 

 

Where is your leadership, Charles Schumer! Why are you not calling for a review of Section 203 (c) (provides for a class of immigrants known as “diversity immigrants,” from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States) of Senator Edward Kennedy’s (D-MA) Immigration Act of 1990?

You can’t have it both ways!

Left Wing Oakland Radicals Worked With ISIS, New Book Reports

with one comment

By Timothy Meads

October 29, 2017

Former Editor in Chief of the New York Times Magazine Edward Klein has a new book that will be released tomorrow October 30th. In All Out War: The Plot to Destroy TrumpKlein reveals an FBI investigation proving coordination between American college campus far left radicals and Islamic terrorists from groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda.

What started as a secret investigation in to the “resistance” movement spurred by college socialists and anarchists in response to Trump’s political rise, led to the discovery of what the FBI is calling the “the greatest challenge to law enforcement since the Weather Underground and the Black Panther Party.”

“There is clearly overwhelming evidence that there are growing ties between U.S. radicals and the Islamic State, as well as several [ISIS] offshoots and splinter groups,’ stated the FBI field report, which was delivered to Acting Director Andrew McCabe on July 11, 2017, and which is being published for the first time in (his) new book All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.

Last summer the FBI began investigating international radical groups such as ANTIFA and other anarchist groups. However, activity from organizations in Oakland piqued the interest of authorities.

Klein’s book details the revelations.

“Now that the bureau has determined they have followers in the radical U.S. resistance movement in the United States, it is clear there will be additional violence in the attacks on law enforcement and U.S. institutions, including banks.

“Ties between three key leaders of the Oakland group [names redacted] met in Hamburg with a leader of the AQAP [Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula] and the AQIM [Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb],’ the report continued. ‘The leader from AQAP is an Egyptian-born male [name redacted] who is known to be in charge of finances and recruiting for the group.

“There is evidence from informants that he is helping the Oakland group acquire the weapons they are seeking, primarily bomb making equipment and toxic chemicals and gasses.

“One of the men from Oakland traveled to Syria to meet with ISIS; the purpose was for training in tactics, but was thought to be primarily a bonding visit to discuss possible massive disruptive attacks in the U.S.

“While in Hamburg, several of the Oakland-based criminals were photographed throwing Molotov cocktails and wielding iron bars, which have been their weapons of choice, though they are almost certainly on the verge of upping the caliber of their weaponry for use in the U.S.

“Despite having their faces covered by masks, they were positively identified.

“This group and their connections with the radical Islamic groups must be disrupted and destroyed.”

Klein also claims that under Barack Obama’s watch, anti-American groups were able to coordinate and foment insurrection because these groups were largely ignored by the FBI during his administration.

“The FBI is really playing catchup ball, because the Obama administration refused to give the bureau the resources it needed to effectively infiltrate and surveil the radical groups on college campuses,’ the source continued.

“Any talk of a connection between radical Islam—a phrase the Obama people wouldn’t even use—and American extremists was pretty much laughed off. [Former Attorney General] Loretta Lynch would have blown a gasket if she heard that the FBI was surveilling so-called college political organizations.

“All that has changed under the Trump administration. Everyone’s aware that the resistance movement, with its effort to get rid of Trump by any means necessary, has created fertile soil for ISIS and al Qaeda to establish a beachhead in America.”

In other words, the far left and radical Islam are united in their hate for the American way of life. They are willing to work together and to be violent to accomplish their goals.

This is nothing new. As mentioned in the FBI report, since the 1960s, radical liberal, anarchist, and socialist groups have regularly used violence as a means to their collective end; the destruction of the United States and implementation of communism or socialism.

The aforementioned group “Weather Underground” is probably the most well known left-wing domestic terrorism organization in the history of the United States. That group was founded by Bill Ayers. Ayers, alongside his girlfriend and several other colleagues, utilized homemade bombs to target American institutions of law enforcement. They successfully detonated several bombs at places such as the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, and a wide range of police stations. His group never killed anybody, but not for lack of trying. They wanted to place explosives at a Fort Dix Army dance, but were stopped by the feds. But, due to a legal misstep by the FBI, Ayers was never charged with domestic terrorism. In fact, Ayers is an unrepentant anti-American, Anti-capitalist. In 2000, he told the New York Times that he did not regret the violent actions his group took. “I don’t regret setting bombs…I don’t feel we did enough.”

If you are wondering what happened to his girlfriend that he co-founded Weather Underground with, well, she died during a bomb cooking experiment gone wrong. Ayers later married Bernadhine Dorn, who was also a member of the domestic terror group. Bill Ayers is also infamous for acting as quasi-mentor to President Barack Obama. Obama launched his political career from Ayers house in 1995.

In 2013, I had an opportunity to protest and speak with Bill Ayers after my college invited him to speak in an academic setting. Ayers now works as an educational reformer and  is a professor of education theory at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He was at my school to speak to our education department and education majors. Myself and several other Conservatives were rightfully outraged that our college had invited him in the first place. But rather than shout him down as current college students do to voices they disagree with, we printed flyers and passed out pamphlets informing students he was. We also gained a few hundred signatures to show our dissatisfaction. It was rather successful. I was somehow blessed with a largely conservative student body where I attended. But, this led to an opportunity to speak with the man.

I asked him if he had any remorse for his actions. Ayers did not. He even seemed adamant that he was morally correct to place the explosives. “The United States was illegally killings thousands of Vietnamese each week, what would you do in that situation,” I remember him telling me.

Ayers also told me that his goal was, and still is, the destruction of capitalism and the United States. But, as an activist, he realized he could be more effective in the educational realm. At the end our conversation, Ayers asked if there was a place to get coffee nearby. “Boy, I hate capitalism but love Starbucks,” he remarked.

This anecdote is important, because as Klein’s book shows, modern college left wing radicals are following in Ayers’ footsteps and are undoubtedly inspired by him. They are just as violent, just as committed, and unless are stopped by the FBI, will continue to try and fundamentally change the USA by whatever means necessary.

Michigan: Muslim mother who forced daughter to undergo FGM wants her ankle monitor removed, irritates her skin

Her daughter’s skin was irritated, too.

 

“Mother charged with forcing daughter to undergo female genital mutilation in first case of its kind in the US wants wants her ankle monitor removed because it irritates her skin,” by Regina F. Graham, Dailymail.com, October 26, 2017 (thanks to RN):

A Michigan mother charged with forcing her daughter to undergo genital mutilation wants her ankle monitor removed claiming that it irritates her skin, according to court documents filed in the case by her attorney on Tuesday.

The Oakland County mother, who has not been publicly named to protect the identity of her minor daughter, has requested for a judge to approve that the device to be removed from her ankle, the Detroit Free Press reported.

In the documents filed by her attorney, Brian Legghio, the woman argues that the ankle monitor ‘serves no practical purpose and there is no reason to continue wearing it for the next eight months.’

She added that the device ‘can never be removed — even while showering, bathing and sleeping,’ that it is ‘physically uncomfortable and causes irritation to the skin,’ and that it is ‘unnecessarily intrusive’.

Her attorney wrote: ‘It’s visual presence and it’s intermittent beeping requires (her) to explain to her 8-year-old and 5-year-old children why their mother must wear an electronic bracelet on her ankle.’

He stressed that his client had ‘no prior criminal record whatsoever’ and that she does not pose a threat to the community.

He described the woman as a stay-at-home mother who cares for her family daily while taking her children to school events and attending prayer at her local mosque.

Prosecutors have not commented on her request.

The mother’s case also involves eight defendants, including two doctors, a physician’s wife and four other mothers.

They are all accused of participating in subjecting young girls to genital mutilation as part of a religious practice within their Indian Muslim sect – the Dawoodi Bohra.

According to members of the religious group, the common age for the procedure to be performed on girls is seven.

Authorities and prosecutors believe that an estimated 100 girls had been subjected to the shocking procedure at a Livonia clinic over the last 12 years.

This is the first genital mutilation case in America after it came to light back in April when Dr. Jumana Nagarwala was indicted.

Nagarwala had worked as an emergency room physician at Henry Ford before she was terminated.

She allegedly performed the procedure on two Michigan girls and two Minnesota girls at the Livonia clinic where the owner, Dr. Fakuruddin Attar and his wife, Farida Attar, have also been charged in the case.

All of the defendants are members of the Dawoodi Bohra. The trial will begin in June for the case….

Cleveland Father Pleads Guilty to Killing Daughter

with one comment

By Clarion Project

Jamal Mansour pleaded guilty to shooting his daughter to death, saying he felt she was disrespecting him.

Mansour, 64, of Cleveland, shot his youngest child, 27-year old Tahani, a pharmacist, once in the side of her face and again in back of her head as she slept in the family home.

The two continually argued about her messy room and her late nights. Tahami, the youngest of seven children, had a non-Muslim boyfriend whom she had kept a secret from her father, fearing the consequences of disclosing such information.

“When she was with him, she had to pretend like she was with other people. She was worried about what would happen if he found out,” said County Prosecutor Andrew Rogalski.

However, before the honor killing when her father was on a trip abroad, Tahani had not slept at home – information her father had found out.

The night of the shooting, Tahani had come home after midnight. The two had argued. During the confrontation, Tahani “brushed him off” and went to bed.

It was then that Mansour took a gun he took with him when he made large bank deposits for his business and went to Tahani’s room.

“If she doesn’t respect me, then she’ll respect this,” Jamal later told the police.

Mansour pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and felonious assault and was sentenced 22 years in prison.

Based on statistics culled in 2015, there are an estimated 23-27 recorded honor killings in the United States annually. The Department of Justice says honor killings in the U.S. are a growing problem.

Mansour can be seen crying during the sentencing saying, asking for forgiveness and saying he wished he were the one dead:

Types of Governments

with one comment

As people gather to form communities they set up systems to preserve order, protect private property, and provide services. This combining of resources for the common good is known as government.

Government is rule by armed force. There is no such thing as good government and all forms are evil.  It is up to the people who fall under these systems to determine how much evil they want to accept.

Basically, there are two types of government:

UNLIMITED GOVERNMENT  – PURE EVIL
LIMITED GOVERNMENT       – LESSER OF TWO EVILS BUT STILL EVIL

Which do you choose?

Pamela Geller is ba-a-a-ck on YouTube and better than ever!

Proving that you can’t silence a good woman, YouTube has reinstated Pamela Geller to its channel.

As noted on this blog a couple of days ago:

A major video archive created by one of the leading critics of creeping sharia has disappeared from YouTube, which functions as a de facto standard reference library for video content in the digital age.

Ah, but Pamela Geller has the clue when she answers her own question.  “Why?  Ask the leftist authoritarians.”  Like Trump, Geller goes against the liberal-leftist narrative dominating popular culture – in her case, the truth about Muslim acts and goals.  And the certainly non-diverse and definitely non-inclusive leftist authoritarians cannot include diverse opinions on their platforms.  So she was deleted.  Disappeared.  Poof!

But her followers remained.  As Geller writes, thanking her fans:

First and foremost, let me thank every reader, supporter, and lover of freedom for tweeting, sharing, emailing, calling and faxing (yes, faxing) YouTube, urging them to reinstate my account. Thousands of you – YOU did it.

I had appealed the termination, but they rejected my appeal. …

My account was terminated because of a 2014 video entitled, “Al Qaeda and Islamic State flags in London’s tunnels.” The video shows jihadis displaying al Qaeda and Islamic state flags on one of London’s tunnels (see this). So telling the truth gets your account terminated at YouTube.

Yes, as stated, she went against the popular liberal-leftist narrative by telling the truth!  And offering proof!  The leftist authoritarians can’t allow such freedom of speech that disagrees with leftist authoritarian delusion – that’s reserved only for some knee-bending athletes and their leftist authoritarian fans going against those they deem inferior.

So enjoy Geller’s channel and also peruse Geller’s YouTube appearances, including the Islamic state flags in London’s tunnels, which video, at the moment, has not returned to her channel.

Hopefully the YouTube leftist authoritarian powers that be are finally beginning to realize that antagonizing their diverse customer base by attempting to silence them has consequences.

Islamic State calls on Muslims to commit jihad mass murder at hurricane relief centers

“To all the (lone mujahids) in the U.S. (warrior), pop down to Houston and drop in at any of the relief centers housing displaced people from the Houston floods, make sure to bring lots of supplies/gadgets/toys to see if you can help put any (unbeliever) out of their misery.”

“Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the enemies of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom you may not know, but whom Allah knows.” (Qur’an 8:60)

“Tweets linked to ISIS target hurricane cities,” by Scott Zamost, CNBC, September 15, 2017:

Law enforcement officials have been advised to step up alerts for “lone wolf attackers” in Miami, Houston and other cities in the wake of threatening social media posts that appear to be connected to ISIS, according to an internal government intelligence document.

The confidential “situation awareness” document, obtained by CNBC, is dated Sept. 14 from the Homeland Security Bureau’s Southeast Florida Fusion Center. The center is the Miami-Dade Police Department’s Homeland Security Bureau. It was sent to law enforcement and “homeland security communities.”

“On Sept. 11, there was a twitter posting that appears to be authored by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) that threatens Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami and Las Vegas, the document states.

The posting said there were “a lot of opportunities for the Soldiers of Islamic state to target, the Question is When?”

The document, which is unclassified, mentions a Newsweek article dated Sept. 6 that cites another ISIS posting calling for attacks on Houston relief centers. The article said: “To all the (lone mujahids) in the U.S. (warrior), pop down to Houston and drop in at any of the relief centers housing displaced people from the Houston floods, make sure to bring lots of supplies/gadgets/toys to see if you can help put any (unbeliever) out of their misery.”

The document also states: “Another Jihadist, in Arabic writing said, ‘A historic hurricane will hit Florida, especially the city of Miami soon’ One that would leave an ‘international tragedy’ on American soil. He quotes Allah saying that a ‘roaring wind in the days of the snakes’ had been sent and makes use of a hurricane emoji.”…

Australia: Girls as young as 9 trafficked into forced marriages

with one comment

September 15, 2017

More than 50 girls in New South Wales were trafficked into forced marriages to older men, with some ‘brides’ being as young as nine years old.

These girls are children in need of protection, but the “Islamophobia” ploy has become yet another weapon to terrorize infidels into immobility. The West in effect is being turned into a two-tier system: one law for Westerners and another for Muslims.

Denmark has been forced to allow ‘wives’ as young as 14 to be reunited with their ‘husbands’ after authorities deciding that upholding child protection laws breached migrants’ human rights.

The West has been forced into silence through lawfare, through false accusations about “Islamophobia,” while the most sinister abuses continue to be perpetrated against human beings, whose human rights are apparently trumped by those of their abusers.

Family and Community Services Minister Pru Goward…. said ‘the community’ does know that child brides do exist, but they choose to turn the other cheek, and ignore it

Back in June, Muslim cleric Ibrahim Omerdic was “convicted for marrying a child bride to a much older man under laws prohibiting forced marriage in Melbourne, Australia”; but that was only one case prosecuted. The Islamic Council of Victoria conceded that “marriage at a younger age is permitted in other countries and cultures,” but not in Australia, while “the Victorian Board of Imams disowned Omerdic” for not observing the laws of Australia.

Does anyone spot a problem with the mainstream Islamic Council and Victorian Board of Imams? Rather than condemn the abhorrent abuse of young girls, the primary concern they expressed was about the laws of Australia. They didn’t say it was warped or wrong to marry these young girls to older men, as it is in accordance with the Hadith and Islamic tradition.

The number of girls seeking help from the UK’s National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) for fear of being trafficked into a forced marriage is at a record high

These cases constitute the rape of underage, defenseless, voiceless girls. Yet few care enough about these innocent girls to intervene on their behalf, for fear of bring branded racist. Instead, last December, the South Australia state government actually blocked a bill to prevent forced child marriages, presumably so as not to offend Muslims who support this Islamic tradition.

“Girls as Young as Nine Are Trafficked into Forced Marriages in Australia”, by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, September 13, 2017:

More than 50 girls in New South Wales were trafficked into forced marriages to older men, with some ‘brides’ being as young as nine years old.

Australia’s Seven News obtained documents from the Australian Federal Police on child marriage in the country. In just two years, a total of 57 children were victims of forced marriage in Australia, with almost all, 51, being from the Sydney area.

The AFP documents included: references to an email from a girl who wrote she was being held against her will and being forced to marry; a situation report with allegations of a forced marriage at the end of the school year; and a human trafficking referral of a girl who was forced to travel outside of Australia and then exploited.

Family and Community Services Minister Pru Goward said that children were under “enormous pressure” from their parents to marry. The minister said ‘the community’ “does know” that child brides do exist, but they choose to “turn the other cheek”, and ignore it.

Ms. Goward urged friends and relatives of children at risk of being trafficked or forced into marriage to come forward and to tell the children they do not have to marry, otherwise “we’ll end up with a continuation of forced marriages”.

Officials are left helpless to save the children once they leave the country, with documents noting the case of two young sisters from the Sydney suburb of Liverpool who were trafficked overseas for marriage. The AFP admitted all they could do was wait to see if the girls came back to Australia…..

A video of the ceremony shows the cleric instructing the girl that “as a wife, you have a duty to obey your husband”. The groom, meanwhile, is advised of his obligation to provide the minor with a “sexual education”.

The number of girls seeking help from the UK’s National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) for fear of being trafficked into a forced marriage is at a record high, with figures showing that as of the end of 2016, there has been just one conviction for child marriage in Britain.

Following the migrant crisis on the continent, the number of Muslim child brides in Germany’s capital, Berlin, is on the rise, and in Scandinavia, child ‘wives’ are being ‘tolerated‘ in migrant centres in Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.

Denmark has been forced to allow ‘wives’ as young as 14 to be reunited with their ‘husbands’ after authorities deciding that upholding child protection laws breached migrants’ human rights.
