Counter-Terrorism Is Politically Incorrect

by Rachel Molschky

….The article continues: “…Of the 60 plots, 49 could be considered homegrown terror plots. This means that one or more of the actors were American citizens, legal permanent residents, or visitors radicalized predominately in the United States.

“In each of these plots, the number one target was military facilities, followed closely by targets in New York City. The third most common target was mass gatherings, like the Boston Marathon, nightclubs and bars, and shopping malls.

“While four plots were successful, and three foiled merely by luck or the swift action of private citizens, the rest were thwarted in their early stages by U.S., and sometimes international, law enforcement.”

However, even this list is not as comprehensive as it could be. There are terrorism cases which are missing, like that of Waad Alwan and Mohanad Hammadi, two Iraqi “refugees” who were already known terrorists before arriving to the US. They were arrested for attempting to supply Al Qaeda with money and weaponry. Their arrests were the result of a counter-terrorism undercover sting operation.

Then there is Abdullatif Aldosary, another known Iraqi terrorist who bombed a federal building in Arizona. In fact, there are many who have been arrested on terrorism charges who are not included in the Heritage Foundation’s list and other plots which have occurred after the list was compiled. And what about those which are not classified as terrorism but in all actuality, are?

The victims of terror plots are not aware that it is Islamophobic to state the obvious fact that their attackers were Muslims who committed their crimes for the sake of Allah. While theObama Administration aligns our government with Sunni Muslims, increases Muslim immigration, eases restrictions on asylum seekers with terrorist ties, broadens its definition of racial profiling “to prohibit federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations,” and makes significant purges in counter-terrorism training, terrorist front group CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been declared a terror organization by both Egypt and Saudi Arabia, both have a foothold in our government.

Meanwhile, mosques are popping up all over the place, including the expansion of a “mega-mosque” in Tennessee, which will ultimately be over 60,000 square feet. Mosques are often the breeding grounds for terrorism, but it is “Islamophobic” to target them for investigation, as the NYPD found out even after discovering terrorist plots due to undercover investigations in mosques.

But then everything is Islamophobic- acknowledging Islamic terrorism, bringing attention to the violent ideology of Islam- maybe even Islam itself is Islamophobic. The problem is, if political correctness and our fear of the Islamophobic label are greater than our will to protect and defend the nation, the future of the United States will be bleaker than what any of us could ever hope to imagine.

Islam’s Inadvertent Patterns

by Daniel Pipes

…Islamic doctrine ingrains a sense of Muslim superiority, a disdain for the faith and civilization of others, which has had two vast implications in modern times: making Muslims the most rebellious subjects against colonial rule and obstructing Muslims from learning from the West to modernize.

Those scriptures also imbue a hostility toward non-Muslims which in turn generates an assumption about non-Muslims harboring a like hostility toward Muslims. In modern times, this projection has created a susceptibility to conspiracy theories which have had many practical consequences: for example, because only Muslims worry that anti-polio vaccinations secretly render their children infertile, polio has effectively become a Muslim-only scourge in 26 countries.

The annual pilgrimage to Mecca, the Islamic hajj, began in the seventh century as a local custom that then became an international meeting that facilitated the transfer of everything from Islamist ideas and political movements (the Idrisis of Libya) to luxury goods (ivory) plants (rubber to Southeast Asia, rice to Europe), and diseases (meningococciskin infections, infectious diarrheal and blood-borne diseases, and respiratory tract infections, including perhaps the brand-new MERS-CoV).

 

The hajj grew from a local ceremony into an international event at which many important exchanges took place.

 

Other Islamic injunctions also have unintended, negative health implications. The imperative for modesty has led some Muslim women to wear full head and body coverings (niqabs and burqas) which cause Vitamin D deficiency, discourage exercise, and are implicated in a host of medical problems, including rashes, respiratory disease, rickets, osteomalacia, and multiple sclerosis.

The daytime fast during Ramadan often leads observant Muslims to exercise less and to “tend to overeat upon breaking their fast, and usually the meal involves heavy, fatty foods that are high in calories,” notes the head of the Emirates Diabetes Society. One survey in Jidda, Saudi Arabia, found 60 percent of respondents reporting excessive weight gain after Ramadan.

 

Ramadan, ironically, is both a month of fasting and of overeating.

 

A preference for first-cousin marriages, which harks back to pre-Islamic tribal practices (to keep wealth in the family and to benefit from daughters’ fertility) over approximately fifty generations has led to widespread inbreeding with negative consequences, including abouttwice the incidence rate of such genetic disorders as thalassemia, sickle cell anemia, spinal muscular atrophy, diabetes, deafness, muteness, and autism.

With regard to women, injunctions about mahram protection by male relatives, and a vastly lower social and legal status combined to create such inadvertent patterns as physical seclusion, obsession with virginity, honor killingsfemale genital mutilation, and (Saudi-style)gender apartheid. Polygamy creates permanent anxiety in wives…

Saudi Women Deliver Petition to End Male Guardianship Laws

The Clarion Project

A petition demanding the end of male guardianship in Saudi Arabiawas delivered to the Kingdom’s Shura Council (a formal advisory body). The petition also calls for changes in Saudi’s family law with regards to custody of children and the right of divorce. In addition, the petition demands an end to the Kingdom’s ban on women driving.

Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women are not allowed to hold a driver’s license. Also under Saudi law, all women and girls must have a male guardian. In most cases, women in the Kingdom are forbidden from travelling, doing business, marrying, divorcing, opening a bank account  – even undergoing certain medical procedures – without the permission of their guardian.

A woman’s guardian can be her father, brother, husband – even her son.

The petition, which was sent to coincide with International Women’s Day (March 8), was rejected by the male-dominated Shura Council. The council is appointed by the king and advises him on policy, however, it has no legislative power itself.

Activist and business woman Khuloud Saleh Alfahad, who supports the petition, said, “I don’t have any identity here in Saudi Arabia. Every woman, even the most conservative, would be happy to see an end to male guardianship.”…

Teenage Jihadists, Car Burnings and Muslim-Only Cemeteries

by Soeren Kern

One month into 2014, Islam-related controversies continued making headlines in newspapers across Europe. The most salient topic involved the dramatic increase in the numbers of European jihadists participating in the war in Syria.

An ominous foreboding is unfolding over Europe, as counter-terrorism officials intensify their warnings about the negative security implications surrounding the return of hundreds—possibly thousands—of battle-hardened jihadists to towns and cities across the continent.

But Syria is only one of many concerns. What follows is a brief survey of some of the more noteworthy stories involving Islam in Europe during just the month of January 2014.

In Britain, a Muslim extremist who hacked a soldier to death on a London street in May 2013, launched ataxpayer-funded appeal against his murder conviction. Michael Adebolajo, 29, who tried to behead the British soldier Lee Rigby with a meat cleaver, maintains he should not have been convicted because he is a “soldier of Allah” and therefore Rigby’s killing was an act of war rather than premeditated murder.

Adebolajo and his co-defendant, Michael Adebowale, 22, were found guilty by a jury in December 2013, but have yet to be sentenced. The judge in the case, Nigel Sweeney, is said to be considering a whole-life prison term, but is awaiting legal guidance from the Court of Appeal of England and Wales. That court is currently reviewing a ruling by the Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights, which states that whole-life terms violate the rights of prisoners.

Also in London, a Muslim woman was arrested by counter-terrorism police at Heathrow Airport on January 16 as she was preparing to board a flight to Turkey. Nawal Masaad, 26, is accused of trying to smuggle £16,500 ($27,000; €20,000) in her underwear to jihadists in Syria. She and her alleged co-conspirator, Amal El-Wahabi, 27—a Moroccan who does not work and claims British social welfare benefits for herself and two young sons—are the first British women to be charged with terrorism offenses linked to the conflict in Syria.

In a separate but related incident, two 17-year-old schoolgirls were arrested at Heathrow over suspected terrorism offenses. Police say they were “inspired by jihad” and were attempting to fly from Britain to Syria to fight in the civil war there.

The head of Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism unit, Commander Richard Walton, revealed that 14 British minors were also arrested on charges linked to the Syrian conflict in January, compared to 24 for the whole of 2013. Calling the figures “stark,” Walton said it was shocking to see “boys and girls enticed” to join jihadists fighting in Syria. He said he believes it is “almost inevitable” some fighters will try to mount attacks in Britain upon their return.

In a sign of further challenges ahead for Britain, an analysis of recent census data published by the Daily Telegraph on January 10 shows that nearly ten percent of the babies and toddlers in England and Wales are Muslim. The percentage of Muslims among children under five is almost twice as high as in the general population. By way of comparison, fewer than one in 200 people over 85 are Muslim, an indication of the extent to which the birth rate is changing the religious demographic in Britain.

The long-running war on free speech in Britain continued apace in January, when a British Muslim lawmaker was threatened with beheading after he posted an image of Jesus and Mohammed on his Twitter account.

Liberal Democrat Maajid Nawaz (an MP who is also the co-founder of counter-extremism think-tank the Quilliam Foundation) posted a cartoon on January 12 of Jesus and Mohammed greeting one another with the caption, “This is not offensive and I’m sure God is greater than to feel threatened by it.” Furious Muslims launched a petition to have Nawaz removed from Parliament.

 

British politician Maajid Nawaz received death threats after posting this cartoon to Twitter, writing “This Jesus & Mo @JandMo cartoon is not offensive&I’m sure God is greater than to feel threatened by it الله أكبر منه” (Image source: jesusandmo.net)

 

The leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg, said he had no intention of asking Nawaz to step down. “We simply cannot tolerate anyone in a free country—where we have to protect free speech, even if that free speech might cause offense to others—being subject to death threats and them and their family being put under extraordinary pressure to recant what they said,” Clegg said.

Muslims eventually retaliated by rescinding Quilliam Foundation’s nomination for the annual British Muslim Awards, held in Manchester on January 30. The foundation had been listed in the “Spirit of Britain” award category, but a statement on the awards Facebook page reads: “In light of recent activity, The British Muslim Awards, after careful consideration, have come to the decision that it can no longer promote the Quilliam Foundation as a finalist, and thus its nomination has been removed with immediate effect.”

In Bristol, the city council approved a controversial plan to convert a former comedy club into a mosque. In Cambridgeshire, a Muslim group submitted plans to convert a warehouse into a new mosque. In Cambridge, locals are opposing a plan to build a £17.5 million ($28.5 million; €21 million) mega-mosque, claiming it could be “a front for terrorism.” In Blackburn, home to nearly 100 mosques, city councilors have been urged to reject a plan to open a mosque in a residential neighborhood….

“Shahs of Sunset” Gives a Mini-Education on Inequality in Islam

By: Rachel Molschky

Shahs

…With no desire to enter the mosque, Michael stayed behind while the rest went in, and the most spiritual woman of the group, who calls herself the “priestess” declared that we’re all one religion, that G-d is the same for everyone. That’s a lovely sentiment if only everyone else agreed. But this “priestess” (who’s borderline hippy I might add, often wearing long, flowing yet low-cut dresses- the cleavage showing kind of ruining the “Islamic” aspect of her outfits), got the shock of her life when she was not allowed to enter the front area, which was for men only. The women had to go to the back corner to pray. This did not sit well with the Iranian-American free spirit who believes that men and women are equal. She says she respects their culture but did not appreciate being dismissed as less than a man.

To shed further light on the differences, the show also made a point to film the many women cloaked in full Islamic attire, the black abaya and niqab, the face veil.

This program may be a silly reality show with lots of ridiculous antics, the “problems” of the rich, women with gobs of make-up, short skirts and low-cut blouses and the occasional partial nudity, but for a channel which is generally very liberal, (and liberal usually means pro-Islam), the show actually did a far better job illustrating some of the incompatibility between Islam and our society.

But what really strikes me is how ill-informed these “Muslim” women are of their own religion. Women are not equal in Islam. That this is a shock to even the most religious of the bunch is frankly, a shock to me. These women might do well to read Ali Sina’s account of how he always defended Islam before reading the Qur’an. I sincerely doubt any of them have even placed their hands on their own holy book.

On the other hand, it is likely this was just the angle the show wanted to take, and the “priestess” was only acting for the camera. Props to them for highlighting it. Now I’m not saying to replace your reading of the Qur’anRobert Spencer or The Religion of Peace websitewith the Shahs of Sunset. But for all those people who get their cultural education strictly from the television, this episode at least, was not bad.
