Palestinian University’s Welcome Banner To New Students Features Terrorists As ‘Heroes’

A Palestinian university welcomed incoming students with a giant banner depicting Palestinian arch-terrorists as “heroes.” The banner was hung at a reception for new students at the Dura branch of Al Quds University and featured photos of the founders of a number of terror groups, including Hamas’s Ahmed Yassin, Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Fathi Shiqaqi, Abu Ali Mustafa of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Black September’s Salah Khalaf, monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch reported. The banner also featured images of former Palestinian Liberation Organization head Yasser Arafat and his deputy Abu Jihad, who as head of the organization’s military wing orchestrated terror attacks that claimed the life of at least 125 Israelis, the Palestinian Authority daily Al-Ayyam reported. Speakers at the reception included Fatah official Jamal Muhaisen, who has delegitimized Israel’s right to exist and supported the use of terror in order to defend sites that are holy to Islam. The Al Quds banner also featured the logo of the university’s branch of Fatah’s student movement with the slogan: “From the sea of blood of the Martyrs (Shahids) we will create a state,” as well as a PA map presenting all of sovereign Israel as “Palestine.” In 2013, Brandeis University suspended its partnership with Al-Quds University following a Nazi-style demonstration at its main campus, with activists marching in black military gear and trampling Israeli flags, carrying fake automatic weapons and raising the Heil Hitler salute.

Until the Palestinians are willing to stop this crap, the Israelis shouldn’t bother sitting down for “peace talks” or discussing the possibility of a “two state solution;” which all the Dems and establishment Republicans have been advocating for.  After all, you cannot make peace when one side doesn’t recognize your right to even exist.  Fatah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Authority (PA) are all just different names for Islamo-fascist terrorist wakos; pure evil.

US Islamist group arming up in anticipation of Trump, report claims

An Islamist group with secretive compounds around the U.S. is arming up in anticipation of raids by the incoming Trump administration, according to a new report from a nonprofit think tank. Muslims of America, which is headquartered in Hancock, N.Y., and run from Pakistan by leader Sheikh Gilani, operates 22 “Islamic villages” around the nation. The compounds are legal, but Gilani has recently ordered all unarmed members to gather firearms, licenses and hunting permits, according to Clarion Project. Gilani believes his group will be targeted by Trump. “I foretold disastrous results should this man be elected as the American President,” Gilani said in a statement shortly after Trump was elected president on Nov. 8. “He has come as a test and trial for the faithful adherents of the holy books.” Supporters say the compounds are simply Islamic communes for mainly African-American Muslims who seek to follow Gilani’s teachings in a rural setting. While they have been the subject of numerous accusations and undercover reporting, the group is not known to have supported or conducted terrorist activity, and its critics are widely dismissed as conspiracy theorists. A confidential source allegedly inside the organization told Martin Mawyer of the Christian Action Network and Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Project that the group expects the FBI to reopen its cases against them as a “homegrown terrorist organization,” according to the report. According to the report, the sources stated that members across the country were given instructions by Gilani to “be prepared to fight,” against President-Elect Trump, who the group believes is part of a satanic-Zionist conspiracy to destroy Islam. Muslims of America’s headquarters in rural New York is known as “Islamberg.” According to a 2007 FBI report obtained by the Clarion Project, MOA “possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns within the U.S. and overseas.”

These radical, anti-America, Islamist groups, and their compounds here in America are more numerous than our politicians and the dominantly liberal mainstream media would like to admit, or like you to know.  They are a clear and present danger.  We’ll see if the incoming Trump administration takes an interest in their activities…

ISIS believed to have attacked US base in Iraq with chemical agent

ISIS fighters are believed to have attacked U.S. and Iraqi forces with a “crude” chemical weapon Tuesday evening, a U.S. official told Fox News. The U.S base outside Qayyarah, 25 miles south of Mosul, was struck by a rocket and traces of a “mustard agent” were believed to be present, the official said. The attack was first reported by CNN. A Pentagon official told reporters that a “tar-like black oily substance” was found on the shell, which landed within the base hundreds of yards from U.S. forces. An initial test for the agent was positive, but “could be false,” the official said. The second test was negative, possibly because the shell had been exposed to the elements. No one was injured in the attack and there were “no signs of exposure” shown by any U.S. troops, including the two soldiers who inspected the shell. Two to four soldiers who were near the shell received full decontamination treatment. “Unless you are right next to [the shell], exposure is unlikely,” the official said. U.S. troops at the base are equipped with chemical weapons exposure suits. The official said the base is attacked “fairly often” with conventional weapons, but Tuesday’s assault is believed to be the first chemical attack on U.S. forces in Iraq since they returned to the country in 2014. Nearly 5,000 U.S. troops are currently on the ground in Iraq and “hundreds” of those forces are located at the base, the official said. The ordinance and residue from the shell are being sent to Ft. Detrick, Md. for processing to confirm the presence of a chemical agent. Unlike mustard gas, which can spread, mustard agent leaves an oily residue behind. The official said the security posture at the base had not changed. Mosul is the last major Iraqi city controlled by ISIS, which overran much of the country more than two years ago.

IF, in fact ISIS/ISIL is trying to use any form of chem or bio warfare against U.S. troops, then the paradigm has definitely shifted there, and we need to respond accordingly.  This story is developing…

Sniper takes out ISIS executioner from a mile away

A sharpshooter killed a top ISIS executioner and three other jihadists with a single bullet from nearly a mile away — just seconds before the fiend was set to burn 12 hostages alive with a flamethrower, according to a new report. The British Special Air Service marksman turned one of the most hated terrorists in Syria into a fireball by using a Barett .50-caliber rifle to strike a fuel tank affixed to the jihadi’s back, the UK’s Daily Star reported Sunday. The pack exploded, killing the sadistic terrorist and three of his flunkies, who were supposed to film the execution, last month, the paper said. The ISIS butcher — who reportedly delighted in burning hostages alive — had been on a US “kill list” for several months, sources told the paper, which did not identify the sniper or the executioner.

Score one for the her majesty’s SAS!  Excellent!!  🙂

Analysis: Fifteen Years After 9/11, What Have We Learned?

Fifteen years after 9/11, Americans still struggle to understand what it is we are fighting. While the mastermind of those attacks, Osama bin Laden, paid the ultimate price for murdering over 3,000 Americans, our “whack-a-mole” strategy in targeting the group he led, al-Qaeda, and its ilk leaves many Americans pondering a question raised by the Temptations’ 1969 anti-war song: “War, what is it good for?” The Temptations answered their own question responding, “Absolutely nothing!” And, as we now fight our longest war, many Americans may agree. But they do so because our leaders irresponsibly refuse to explain what it is we are fighting. What we experienced since 9/11 is not dissimilar to Japan’s recurring plight with an invasion of sea giants. Fishing villages along Japan’s western coastline have been devastated for over a decade by a most unlikely invader. Seemingly lending itself more to the realm of science fiction, it is, however, a reality. It is the giant Nomura jellyfish. Ever since 2005, ocean currents have transported swarms of Nomura—a single jellyfish spanning six feet and weighing up to 450- pounds—into the Sea of Japan. There, it presents a nightmare for fishermen, destroying their nets and even sinking one boat. An approach taken to destroy the jellyfish was to drag steel nets through the swarms, ripping through the jellyfish and sending shredded pieces of Nomura to the ocean floor. That approach only created another problem—shreds of the jellyfish proved capable of rejuvenating! In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, this, in essence, is what we have experienced. As America targeted al-Qaeda, the group later rejuvenated into a new lifeform, evidenced by disenchanted Islamists breaking from it to create ISIS. But al-Qaeda was not the original 450-pound jellyfish; its roots lie in the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood. Founded in 1928 in Egypt, the Brotherhood sought to implement sharia there. But its founder, cleric Hassam al-Banna, had grander notions, stating, “It is in the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.” Today, the Brotherhood is established in seventy countries around the world, including the U.S., seeking to fulfill this goal. Those believing it a benign threat to democracy should read its once-secret strategic plan. Written in 1991 and inadvertently discovered in 2004, the Brotherhood’s strategy is to undermine our Constitution by using our laws against us. This includes consistently raising claims of political correctness and Islamophobia, fertilizing America’s soil with a sense of guilt over criticizing Islam, thus nurturing the seeds for Islamic influence and sharia to grow. This strategy mandates, “The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers.” The process by which this is accomplished is “civilization jihad.” It tills the soil for the violent jihad that is to follow. Imagine we discovered plans for the attack on Pearl Harbor beforehand and did nothing to stop it. Sadly today, despite knowing the Brotherhood’s strategic war plans for America, we allow them to continue unabated. Failing to deter them, President Barack Obama instead encourages them, inviting Brotherhood leaders to the White House. Could one even conceive of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt inviting Japan’s General Hideki Tojo to the White House knowing an attack on Pearl Harbor by Tokyo was planned? Obama also chooses to ignore the Brotherhood’s 2010 declaration of war against us, issued by its Supreme Guide, Muhammad Badi. Badi effectively “endorsed anti-American Jihad and pretty much every element in the al-Qaeda ideology book.” The last time we chose to ignore a war declaration was Osama bin Laden’s (both in 1996 and 1998)—for which we paid a heavy price. Among adherents to the Brotherhood’s ideology promoted by Banna, becoming disenchanted by the slow pace it was moving to establish a global caliphate, was bin Laden. This eventually led him to establish al-Qaeda in 1988. As al-Qaeda floundered, rejuvenation of the Muslim Brotherhood ideology occurred, manifesting itself this time in the life-form of ISIS. Breaking away from the remnants of al-Qaeda in Iraq, ISIS severed ties with bin Laden’s group in 2014 as it began capturing territory. Additional Brotherhood “pieces” have come to manifest themselves as various splinter group life-forms claiming allegiance either to al-Qaeda or ISIS. But the threat we face today still emanates from the ideology of the 450-pound Brotherhood monster jellyfish. Pieces breaking off remain firmly committed to taking Islam’s goal of a global caliphate to more violent levels to achieve success. Yet fifteen years after 9/11, our leadership still refuses to identify the enemy. Obama continues to hide the truth, calling it “violent extremism.” But the enemy today is the same that reared its ugly head on 9/11. It is Islamic extremism. Because we fail to label it as such, civilization jihad has established a beachhead throughout the Western world. One need only look to France to understand what is happening. Today more than half that country’s military is deployed domestically due to the Islamist threat. We see Muslim policemen refusing to protect Jewish synagogues, targeted by supposed Muslim “moderates,” yet the false cry of Islamophobia hides the reality anti-Semitism exists there. No wonder Jews are now leaving France in droves. Interestingly, even as Muslims on Arab TV broadcast programs raising the issue of their religion’s penchant for violence, political correctness inhibits any such discussion in the West. Given this free pass, clerics in Western mosques continue to preach Islam’s gospel of global sharia to their flocks. While teaching anti-West hatred, some clerics, like England’s recently-convicted (for promoting ISIS) Anjem Choudary, live off welfare, earning more than the British soldiers being sent to fight the Islamism they promote. What have we learned from 9/11? In the words of the Temptations, “Absolutely nothing!” -Lt. Colonel James G. Zumwalt, USMC (Ret.), is a retired Marine infantry officer who served in the Vietnam war, the U.S. invasion of Panama and the first Gulf war. He is the author of “Bare Feet, Iron Will–Stories from the Other Side of Vietnam’s Battlefields,” “Living the Juche Lie: North Korea’s Kim Dynasty” and “Doomsday: Iran–The Clock is Ticking.” He frequently writes on foreign policy and defense issues.

Starnes: Muslims complain about town’s 9/11 memorial

A group of New York Muslims has taken offense at a small town’s new memorial honoring those who died in the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks. The Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier fired off a letter to city leaders in Owego – alleging that words engraved in the granite memorial would encourage hatred toward Muslims. The memorial, which will be dedicated on Saturday, identifies those responsible for the attacks as “Islamic terrorists.” That’s a problem for the Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier, based in nearby Johnson City, N.Y. A spokesperson told our Fox television affiliate that having the words “Islamic terrorists” on the monument is a “broad brush against the many Muslims who live in the Southern Tier.” “They want us to change the word from ‘Islamic Terrorist’ to either ‘terrorist’ or ‘Al Qaeda terrorist,’” City Manager Donald Castelluci told me. “I sent them back an email saying I disagreed with their premise 100 percent.” The entire inscription reads: “On September 11, 2001 nineteen Islamic terrorists unsuspectedly boarded four airliners departing east coast airports to hijack the planes and carry out a series of coordinated attacks against the United States. This is a tribute to all the lives lost that day and to the heroic sacrifice of all who rushed to help. As Americans, we honor their memory by living our lives in freedom. We will never forget.” Mr. Castelluci said they have no plans to change a single letter in the town’s memorial. “I don’t live in a politically correct world,” he told Fox affiliate WICZ. “I live in a historical fact world…whether it’s American, homegrown, Christianity, Islamic, you call it what it is. And we don’t whitewash things, especially here.” Amen, Mr. City Manager! “This is not about religion,” he told me. “It’s about one event on one day that killed more than 3,000 people.” I reached out to the Islamic Center of the Southern Tier but they did not respond to my inquiries. I want to commend Mr. Castelluci and the good people of Owego for refusing to bow at the altar of political correctness. The facts surrounding 9/11 are very clear. Islamic radicals committed jihad on American soil. They were not shouting, “Jesus Saves” when they flew those jetliners in the buildings. On Saturday, the citizens of Owego will commemorate the 15th anniversary of that terrible day by dedicating their memorial park – a park that honors a local resident who died in one of the twin towers. His name was Derek Statkevicus and he worked on the 89th floor of 2 World Trade Center. And his life was taken by an Islamic terrorist. That’s a fact. -Todd Starnes is host of Fox News & Commentary, heard on hundreds of radio stations.

Thousands buried in at least 72 ISIS mass graves

Surrounded by smoke and flames, the sound of gunshots echoing around him, the young man crouched in the creek for hours, listening to the men in his family die. On the other side of the mountain, another survivor peered through binoculars as the handcuffed men of neighboring villages were shot and then buried by a waiting bulldozer. For six days he watched as the extremists filled one grave after another with his friends and relatives. Between them, the two scenes of horror on Sinjar mountain contain six burial sites and the bodies of more than 100 people, just a small fraction of the mass graves Islamic State (ISIS) extremists have scattered across Iraq and Syria. In exclusive interviews, photos and research, The Associated Press has documented and mapped 72 of the mass graves, the most comprehensive survey so far, with many more expected to be uncovered as the Islamic State group’s territory shrinks. In Syria, AP has obtained locations for 17 mass graves, including one with the bodies of hundreds of members of a single tribe all but exterminated when ISIS extremists took over their region. For at least 16 of the Iraqi graves, most in territory too dangerous to excavate, officials do not even guess the number of dead. In others, the estimates are based on memories of traumatized survivors, ISIS propaganda and what can be gleaned from a cursory look at the earth. Still, even the known victims buried are staggering — from 5,200 to more than 15,000. Sinjar mountain is dotted with mass graves, some in territory clawed back from ISIS after the group’s onslaught against the Yazidi minority in August 2014; others in the deadly no man’s land that has yet to be secured. The bodies of Talal Murat’s father, uncles and cousins lie beneath the rubble of the family farm, awaiting a time when it is safe for surviving relatives to return to the place where the men were gunned down. On Sinjar’s other flank, Rasho Qassim drives daily past the graves holding the bodies of his two sons. The road is in territory long since seized back, but the five sites are untouched, roped off and awaiting the money or the political will for excavation, as the evidence they contain is scoured away by the wind and baked by the sun. “We want to take them out of here. There are only bones left. But they said ‘No, they have to stay there, a committee will come and exhume them later,'” said Qassim, standing at the edge of the flimsy fence surrounding one site, where his two sons are buried. “It has been two years but nobody has come.” ISIS made no attempt to hide its atrocities. In fact it boasted of them. But proving what United Nations officials and others have described as an ongoing genocide — and prosecuting those behind it — will be complicated as the graves deteriorate. “We see clear evidence of the intent to destroy the Yazidi people,” said Naomi Kikoler, who recently visited the region for the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. “There’s been virtually no effort to systematically document the crimes perpetrated, to preserve the evidence, and to ensure that mass graves are identified and protected.” Then there are the graves still out of reach. ISIS atrocities extend well outside the Yazidi region in northern Iraq. Satellites offer the clearest look at massacres such as the one at Badoush Prison in June 2014 that left 600 male inmates dead. A patch of scraped earth and tire tracks show the likely killing site, according to exclusive photos obtained by the imagery intelligence firm AllSource Analysis.

And just think.  Obama has been importing Muslim so-called Syrian refugees, without properly screening them, …by the tens of thousands.  And, Hillary wants to up that number significantly if she should, God forbid, become our next President.  Keep that in mind..  We’re importing the mentality that can look you in the eye and justify this kind of barbarism.  How crazy is that?!?
