Lawsuit: Dirty Cop Robert Mueller Helped Saudi Arabia Cover Up 9/11 Involvement

9/11 survivor Sharon Premoli was pulled from the rubble of the World Trade Center and is suing Saudi Arabia.

Why Saudi Arabia?

Because evidence has emerged that they provided material support to the Saudi hijackers. This has been brought to the forefront by acclaimed investigative reporter, Paul Sperry of the New York Post and Real Clear Investigations.

But, what is really a bombshell is the extreme lengths them FBI director Robert Mueller went to cover up for the Saudi government. It’s practically breathtaking and Sperry has listed all the interventions Mueller went to in protecting them. The Deep State has fought tooth and nail to keep the 28 pages on Saud involvement hidden from the public and this must be why.

Investigative reporter Paul Sperry via the New York Post:

  • Time and again, agents were called off from pursuing leads back to the kingdom’s embassy in Washington, as well as its consulate in Los Angeles, where former FBI Agent Stephen Moore headed a 9/11 task force looking into local contacts made by two of the 15 Saudi hijackers, Moore testified in an affidavit for the 9/11 lawsuit. He concluded that “diplomatic and intelligence personnel of Saudi Arabia knowingly provided material support to the two hijackers and facilitated the 9/11 plot.” Yet he and his team were not allowed to interview them, according to the suit.
  • In Washington, former FBI Agent John Guandolo, who worked terror cases out of the bureau’s DC office, said then-Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar “should have been treated as a terrorist suspect” for giving money to a woman who funded two of the 9/11 hijackers. But he was never questioned either, Guandolo said.
  • Instead, Mueller obliged what Guandolo called an “outrageous request” from Bandar within days of the attacks to help evacuate from the country dozens of Saudi officials, including at least one Osama bin Laden relative on the terror watch list. Mueller assured their safe passage to planes, using agents as personal escorts, according to FBI documents obtained by Judicial Watch. Agents who should have been interrogating the Saudis instead acted as their bodyguards.
  • In 2002, Mueller prevented agents from arresting the Saudi-sponsored al Qaeda cleric who privately counseled the Saudi hijackers, said Raymond Fournier, an agent with the Joint Terrorism Task Force in San Diego at the time. “He was responsible for vacating the arrest warrant for Anwar al-Awlaki for passport fraud,” Fournier said. He even ordered agents who detained the fiend at JFK to release him into the custody of a “Saudi representative,” Fournier said. The FBI closed their investigation of Awlaki, who was allowed to leave the US on a Saudi plane. “Shortly thereafter, the Fort Hood shooting occurred and Awlaki’s fingerprints were all over that incident,” said former FBI Agent Michael Biasello, who helped work the Texas terror case.
  • At the same time, Mueller removed a veteran agent from investigating a tip that an adviser to the Saudi royal family had met with some of the Saudi hijackers at his home in Sarasota, Fla., effectively killing the case, according to the lawsuit. The home was suddenly abandoned two weeks before 9/11.
  • Mueller even tried to shut down a congressional investigation into the Saudi hijackers and their contacts in LA and San Diego, said Bob Graham, who led the joint inquiry as Senate Intelligence Committee chair. “The strongest objections” to his staff investigators visiting FBI offices there came from the FBI director himself, said Graham, in a 2017 interview with Harper’s magazine. Among other things, Mueller refused their demands to question a paid FBI informant who roomed with the hijackers and even moved him to a safe house where they couldn’t find him, Graham said. Mueller, with the White House, redacted 28 pages detailing Saudi-9/11 ties from the congressional report.
  • He also gave testimony to Congress that was, at the very least, misleading. In an October 2002 closed-door hearing, Mueller claimed he found out about Saudi-9/11 connections only as a result of the joint inquiry’s investigative work: “[S]ome facts came to light here and to me, frankly, that had not come to light before.” Only, Moore said he gave Mueller “daily” briefings on such connections in 2001. Mueller also testified the hijackers “contacted no known terrorist sympathizers in the United States,” even though the FBI’s own case files showed they had contact with at least 14 terrorist suspects and sympathizers in the US prior to 9/11, including some working for the Saudi government. (In later testimony, he tried to walk this back, insisting he “had no intent to mislead.”)

“He’s a villain, and an arrogant one to boot,” former FBI Agent Mark Wauck told Paul Sperry of Robert Mueller, adding that his former boss has a long history of acting as a “servant of the deep state,” or the permanent DC ruling class.

Jamal Khashoggi: Saudi journalist’s body parts found, say Sky sources

Body parts belonging to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been found, according to two Sky sources. The sources have told Sky News the Saudi dissident had been “cut up” and his face “disfigured“. One source also suggested the writer’s remains were discovered in the garden of the Saudi consul general’s Istanbul home – located around 500 metres away from the consulate.

It contradicts the explanation being made by Saudi officials that the body was rolled up in a carpet and handed to a local collaborator who was tasked with disposing of the evidence.

Theresa May’s spokesman said reports of Mr Khashoggi’s body parts being found were “deeply disturbing”.

“The location of Mr Khashoggi’s body is just one of the questions we need answers to and as such we await the full results of the Turkish investigation,” he said.

In a day of fast-moving developments in the case:

:: Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan called Mr Khashoggi’s killing a premeditated “murder

:: Mr Erdogan demanded Saudi officials reveal the whereabouts of Mr Khashoggi’s body

:: The dissident’s son met Saudi ruler, King Salman and crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, in Riyadh

:: Turkish media said Mr Khashoggi’s belongings were found in suitcases in a Saudi consulate car

:: Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he was “deeply concerned” to hear Mr Erdogan call it a premeditated murder.

President Erdogan says there can be no cover-up in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi 1:48 Video: Erdogan demands answers in Khashoggi case

In a speech to the country’s parliament, Turkey’s president Erdogan demanded Saudi Arabia hold those responsible to account and asked: “Why has the body of someone who was officially said to be killed not been found yet?”

He did not mention an alleged audio recording that Turkish authorities claim to have of Mr Khashoggi’s death that supposedly confirms he was tortured, killed, had his fingers cut off and was dismembered.

The apparent discovery of Mr Khashoggi’s body parts – and Mr Erdogan’s version of events based on what he described as “new evidence and information” – both contradict Saudi Arabia’s explanation for his death.

It has said Mr Khashoggi died in a “fist fight” at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

Mr Khashoggi was a known critic of the Saudi government and crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The Turkish president, who had promised the “naked truth” about the killing“, did not mention the crown prince in his speech, though officials linked to the royal have been implicated in it.

Saudi Arabia has said the heir-apparent of the world’s top oil exporter was not involved, but any major decision must be signed off by the highest powers within its ruling Al Saud family. It came as video was released showing a meeting between the journalist’s son, Salah Khashoggi, the Gulf kingdom’s ruler, King Salman, and crown prince Mohamed bin Salman, at the Yamama Palace in Riyadh.

Mr Khashoggi’s brother, Sahel, was also at the meeting at which the king and crown prince expressed their condolences over the Washington Post columnist’s death.

A family friend told the AP news agency that Salah Khashoggi had been under a travel ban and barred from leaving the kingdom since last year as a result of his father’s criticism of the regime.

Saudi authorities have not confirmed the restrictions.

In Turkey media reports that could not be verified said investigators had found Mr Khashoggi’s belongings in a number of suitcases found in a Saudi consulate vehicle in a car park in Istanbul. Local broadcaster Ahaber aired video showing crime scene investigators searching what appeared to be the contents of cases.

Oppression of women in America?


waving flagPosted by    Monday, January 23, 2017 at 7:00pm | 1/23/2017 – 7:00pm

URL of the original posting site: http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/01/oppression-of-women-in-america/

THIS is actual female oppression.

 

I worked in National Security at Breitbart, which made me very grateful to live in America. Every day I covered stories describing actual oppression of females. I bet you anything those females would love to have the cost of their birth control as their only worry.

Those marches made me ashamed of my sex since governments in other countries actually treat its female citizens like second class citizens. I will concentrate on three countries: Saudi Arabia, Iran, and India.

Saudi Arabia

A major American ally. While the country has slowly started making ways out of the stone age, they still live in one. Saudi law prohibits females from leaving the house without a male guardian. The females cannot travel or even conduct any official business without this guardian’s permission. This guardian must also make medical decisions for the female.

Yes, Leftists. In Saudi Arabia, a male MAKES YOUR MEDICAL DECISION. Last time I checked you guys did not need a male guardian to give you permission to even go to a doctor.

Oh, those disgusting vagina hats you wore? Good luck doing that in Saudi Arabia! Over there, females must keep their bodies covered except for hands and eyes. Now, in some areas a female can have her face uncovered. SO RADICAL, RIGHT?!

Did you enjoy socializing with the males who marched alongside you? In Saudi Arabia, sex segregation is a top priority. In fact, if someone catches you talking to a non-relative male, you can receive charges for adultery or prostitution! In June 2010, the courts sentenced four men and eleven men because they had the nerve for socializing at a party. Yeah, they got lashes and time in jail.

Did you drive to the marches? Because females in Saudi Arabia basically cannot drive. There are no laws, but restrictions basically make it impossible for females to enjoy driving a car. The governments force these citizens to receive a local license to drive and the places do not issue them to females. Rural areas allow a little flexibility.

I saw that the march in DC gave the metro a historic day. Yeah, Saudi Arabia does not like for its females to enjoy public transportation because God forbid they mingle with non-related males. THE HORROR.

I could go on, but let’s move to another country.

Iran

Ironically, females worked hard to overthrow the government in 1979. The result gave females an oppressive government with little rights.

Work in the government? You must abide by the Islamic dress code. The previous government banned the hijab, but this new government forced ALL females to wear it. No choice. So you go from one extreme to the other. How lovely. The government banned females from becoming judges. Females must wear the hijab out in public. Want an education? You have to wear the hijab to school.

Females cannot play sports! To make it worse, females cannot even watch the males play these sports.

Guess what happened in 2015? Iran proposed bills to OUTLAW VOLUNTARY STERILIZATION. Yup! LITERALLY NO BIRTH CONTROL. Females cannot even receive information about ways to prevent pregnancy.

Another proposed law propped up gender discrimination:

The Comprehensive Population and Exaltation of Family Bill (Bill 315), which is due to be discussed in parliament next month, would further entrench gender-based discrimination, particularly against women who choose not to or are unable to marry or have children.

The bill instructs all private and public entities to prioritize, in sequence, men with children, married men without children and married women with children when hiring for certain jobs. It also makes divorce more difficult and discourages police and judicial intervention in family disputes opening women up to increased risks of domestic violence.Islam is NOT

India

India remains one of the most dangerous places on this planet for females. In 2011, a poll placed it at number four. Acid attacks help keep India high in the poll because any female from any class can have this attack, mainly used as revenge. Thing is, many of the attacks go unpunished.

The government outlawed child marriage, but no one enforces it! A family can marry off their young daughter to a disgusting old man. The girl better not fight back or else the family will punish her. Then there are those pesky dowry gifts. If a female violates the marriage contract, husbands have been known to kill or punish the female. Her family rarely comes to her aide because she has shamed them.

In rural areas, females often face punishment if males in their house commit a crime:

In August, village leaders in Uttar Pradesh state allegedly ordered the rape of two Dalit sisters to pay for the “sins” of their brother who had eloped with a higher-caste woman. These unofficial village councils, called Khaps, made up of men from dominant castes who often enjoy political patronage, are known to issue edicts restricting women’s mobility and rights, and condemning couples for marrying outside their caste or religion.

India witnessed a massive spike in honor killings:

India has registered an almost 800 percent rise in the number of killings in the name of “honour” reported last year, according to figures presented in parliament.

Indian police registered 251 cases of honour killings in 2015, compared with 28 cases reported in 2014 when the government began counting them separately from murder, according to a statement this week by Junior Home Minister Hansraj G Ahir to India’s parliament.

These silly females actually thought they could marry outside of their class or clan! HOW DARE THEY TRY TO HAVE FREEDOM AND CHOOSE THEIR OWN HUSBAND!!! Yes, their families will kill or harm them if they do something like this.

So there you have it, females in America. Keep whining about your birth control and no abortions on demand. You have NO idea what oppression feels like. You have NO idea what it feels like to be treated like a second class citizen. I suggest you study up on the rest of the world and get some perspective before you lecture about the alleged horrible way females are treated in America.

House unanimously passes bill to allow 9/11 lawsuits against Saudi Arabia / Obama’s huge Saudi 9/11 dilemma


waving flagBy Katie Bo Williams – 09/09/16

The White House has hinted strongly it will veto the measure. Obama has lobbied fiercely against it, arguing it could both strain relations with Saudi Arabia and lead to retaliatory legislation overseas against U.S. citizens.

But lingering suspicion over Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks and pressure from victims’ families made the bill a popular bipartisan offering on Capitol Hill. The bill’s popularity puts the president in a delicate position. Supporters are hoping Obama will be leery of expending political capital he desperately needs during the lame-duck session. The president is hoping lawmakers will pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and a criminal justice reform measure and confirm Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

If Obama does choose to veto the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, supporters believe that they have the two-thirds majority needed to override him —a first during his presidency.

“I think we easily get the two-thirds override if the president should veto,” Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who introduced the bill in the Senate, said when the bill cleared the upper chamber in the spring.

But many on Capitol Hill do not believe that the veto is a done deal. The White House has not issued an official position on the bill and spokesmen have been careful with their language, stopping short of issuing a full veto threat.

“We have serious concerns with the bill as written,” a White House official said Wednesday.

“We believe there needs to be more careful consideration of the potential unintended consequences of its enactment before the House considers the legislation,” the official said. “We would welcome opportunities to further engage with the Congress on that discussion.” The president has 10 days to either sign or reject the legislation before it becomes law. Leftist Propagandist

Supporters of the legislation see it as a moral imperative.

“The victims of 9-11 and other terrorist attacks on US soil have suffered much pain and heartache, but they should not be denied justice,” Schumer said in a statement Wednesday.

Under current U.S. law, victims may sue a country designated as a state sponsor of terrorism, like Iran. The bill would allow citizens to sue countries without that designation —like Saudi Arabia. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 hailed from Saudi Arabia. Critics have long suspected that the kingdom’s government may have either directly or indirectly supported the attacks.

Congress in July released 28 previously secret pages detailing suspicious Saudi ties to the 9/11 hijackers, but the report failed to provide a smoking gun. House Intelligence Committee leaders have cautioned that the findings were preliminary. The 9/11 Commission report said that neither the Saudi government “as an institution” nor its senior officials funded the attackers.

Saudi officials have for years denied that their government had any role in plotting the attacks, and the Saudi government has led a quiet campaign in Washington to kill the legislation.

Despite its popularity in Congress, some prominent national security advisers have also pilloried the bill.

Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton and ex-Attorney General Michael Mukasey, both of whom served under former President George W. Bush, this week warned that the legislation “is far more likely to harm the United States than bring justice against any sponsor of terrorism.”

New House Resolution Directs Intel Committee to Release 28 Pages From 9/11 Report

Rep. Walter Jones
Rep. Walter Jones

Encouraged by rising, bipartisan support for a resolution urging President Obama to declassify 28 pages said to link Saudi Arabia to the 9/11 hijackers, the leaders of Capitol Hill’s declassification drive have now introduced a resolution directing the leaders of the House intelligence committee to take matters into their own hands.

Introduced Monday, House Resolution 779 directs the chair and ranking member of the House intelligence committee—Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff, respectively—to declassify the 28 pages by publishing them in the Congressional Record under the protection of the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause.

Congressman Walter Jones introduced the resolution along with original cosponsors Stephen Lynch and Thomas Massie. The same trio is the driving force behind House Resolution 14, which urges the president to release the pages that comprise the final chapter in the report of a 2002 congressional intelligence inquiry. Introduced last year, HRes 14 has seen a surge in support following an April 60 Minutes report on the 28 pages, and now has 70 cosponsors.

“I have read these pages and can say that while their release will not harm national security, the contents are critical to our foreign policy moving forward…That is why I have introduced a resolution that would enable the House Committee on Intelligence to declassify the 28 pages,” said Jones in a press release issued today.

Committee Leaders Support Declassification

Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes
Rep. Devin Nunes

In April, both Nunes and Schiff voiced their support for releasing the 28 pages. Nunes said “the benefits of publishing this information would outweigh any potential damage to America’s national security,” and Schiff told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, “They should be released and I think, as is often the case, the speculation about what they contain is more damaging in fact than the contents.”

H.Res.779 has been referred to the House rules committee. The committee’s ranking member, Louise Slaughter, is a cosponsor of the resolution urging the president to declassify the pages. The resolution’s preamble notes that the CIA has acknowledged that the 28 pages are the property of Congress and that the Supreme Court upheld the constitutional prerogative of Members of Congress or committees of Congress to disclose classified information” by way of the Speech or Debate Clause.

This new legislative action comes as an intelligence community declassification review of the 28 pages is expected to wrap up in the next few weeks.

The White House said it ordered the review in the summer of 2014. Skeptical that a review of just 28 pages could truly take two years and counting, many observers—including 9/11 family members and victims—point to the delay as signaling the Obama administration’s desire to put off a resolution of the issue as long as possible.

Former Sen. Bob Graham

The delay strategy grew untenable in April when the 60 Minutes report spawned fresh media attention, dozens of newspaper editorials, heightened citizen interest and an increase in legislator requests to read the secret pages. Soon after the 60 Minutes segment aired, former senator Bob Graham said that a Department of Homeland Security advisor told him to expect a decision in June.

However, confusion has mounted over what exactly will happen at the end of that review. In a May meeting with proponents of the pages’ release, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper reportedly voiced an expectation that the president would turn the matter back over to the Congress. If that is indeed the White House’s intention, it could represent a new means of stalling the release of a document that, according to Graham, “point(s) a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier” of the 9/11 attacks. H.Res. 779 addresses that possibility head-on.

A New Angle on Speech or Debate Clause

The drive to declassify the 28 pages has spanned 13 years; throughout that time, many citizens have called for members of Congress to declassify the 28 pages by entering them into the congressional record under the protection from prosecution provided by the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause.

brian

As we reported earlier this month, one of those advocating that avenue of declassification is former senator Mike Gravel, who used it to release the “Pentagon Papers,” a secret government history of the Vietnam War.

In his own declassification feat, Gravel had something that individual members of Congress lack where the 28 pages are concerned: physical custody of the document. The 28 pages are kept in a secure facility in the basement of the Capitol, precluding Jones, Lynch, Massie or other members of Congress from entering them into the record themselves.

SchiffRecognizing that, House Resolution 779 challenges those with greater dominion over the 28 pages—the chair and ranking member of the House intelligence committee—to do for Congress what rank-and-file members cannot do on their own.

Apart from the Speech or Debate Clause, both the House and Senate have rules by which either body, acting alone, can declassify information, even over the objection of the president. In both houses, the initiation of that process begins in the intelligence committee, but also entails seeking the president’s opinion and then a majority vote of the chamber to override it, if necessary.

In opting instead for a Speech or Debate Clause approach, Jones, Lynch and Massie are pursuing a route that bypasses the president and gives Congress an opportunity to assert its own authority by flexing a rarely-used muscle.

A Multi-Purpose Tactic

In the widening, multi-front battle to secure the release of the 28 pages, House Resolution 779 could serve two purposes.

First, the prospect of a congressional declassification of the 28 pages adds a new variable for Obama to weigh as he considers his own decision to declassify the 28 pages.

REDACTED1Embedded in his pending decision is yet another question: If the pages are released, what information, if any, should continue to remain secret? Knowing that the House intelligence committee could later release additional details he chose to conceal puts additional pressure on the president to be more liberal in his declassification. If he attempts to cater to Saudi Arabia or other interested parties by leaving damning details secret, he could face criticism and questioning of his motives if and when those details come out later.

Second, the new resolution also serves as a Plan B: Should the president decide not to release the 28 pages, to do so with heavy redactions, or turn the issue back to Capitol Hill, Congress would be poised to deliver transparency to the American people on its own.

“At a minimum, the draft resolution tends to maintain a drumbeat of pressure on the issue and makes it a tad more likely that the administration will act to release the material,” said Steven Aftergood, who directs the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy, in an email to 28Pages.org. Whether the resolution does more than that depends on what kind of reception it receives in the House.”

The development was applauded by Sharon Premoli, who endured a harrowing escape from the World Trade Center on 9/11: “I think it is unconscionable that it has taken this administration 8 years to read 28 pages and to make a decision. Anything that can move congress to declassify the 28 pages is a good thing and I support it 100 percent.”

RELEASE THE 28 PAGES, OBAMA: So We Can End This Suicidal ALLIANCE with Saudi Arabia


waving flagPosted on April 18, 2016

Time to cut the umbilical cord and remove any partnership with Saudi Arabia! Check this out.

By John Hayward

Investigative journalist and Hoover Institution media fellow Paul Sperry appeared on Breitbart News Daily with host Stephen K. Bannon on Monday morning to talk about the potential release of the “28 Pages” of long-classified documents that may demonstrate Saudi complicity in the 9/11 attacks.

Sperry, author of Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington, published an article in the New York Post this weekend about “how the U.S. covered up the Saudi role in 9/11.”  In that article, Sperry discusses many interviews with intelligence and law-enforcement officers who say “virtually every road” from the 9/11 attacks “led back to the Saudi Embassy in Washington, as well as the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles” — but investigators were constantly told to back off from pursuing those leads.

On Breitbart News Daily, Sperry said his book Infiltration documents “how the Saudi machine has financed a number of front organizations,” including — but not limited to — radical mosques.  He expected the infamous “28 Pages” to fit neatly with the many other classified documents he reviewed when writing the book.

He thought the Saudis probably shared that expectation, given their surprisingly blunt threats to wage economic warfare against the United States if the documents are declassified.

“It’s an empty threat, but it shows just how worried they are, that this information is going to get out there, and they’re going to be held liable,” he said, adding that he’s been told “there’s enough information in those 28 pages to bring indictments against Saudi officials.”

Sperry emphasized the importance of both releasing the 28 Pages and passing legislation that would allow 9/11 families to use the declassified information, by filing suit against the Saudis involved in the attacks.

Rand Paul: Cut Off Arms Sales To Saudis Until They Take In Refugees


waving flagAuthored by Steve Watson | Infowars.com – November 19, 2015

“The Gulf states have poured gasoline on this fire, they have not taken a single refugee.”

GOP Presidential candidate Rand Paul made some bold statements in an interview Wednesday, noting that until other Middle Eastern countries address their role in the refugee crisis, the US should not be selling arms to them.AMEN

When asked what should be done to help the innocent people fleeing terrorism in Syria and Iraq, Paul called out the neighboring states that have yet to take in a single refugee. “One of the biggest supporters of Sunni terrorism in the world is Saudi Arabia, Qatar is up there, UAE is up there.” Paul noted “Sometimes government, sometimes private donors. What I would say is no more sales of any arms to these countries until they start accepting refugees.” the Senator urged.

“The Gulf states have poured gasoline on this fire, they have not taken a refugee. Iran has not taken in refugees and they’ve been an arsonist in this situation as well.” Paul told Fox News viewers.

“So those who live there need to step up and we need to say we’re not going to sell arms to you anymore if you’re not willing to do your fair share.” the Senator concluded.

Paul has introduced legislation to restrict benefits to refugees coming into the US. The Senator explained that refugees currently entering are immediately entered into the welfare system, where as disabled veterans and unemployed Americans are already struggling to make ends meet.

“You don’t have the right to be an American citizen. Most people don’t realize this but refugees come here and immediately are put on welfare.” Paul stated, adding that “there are whole agencies set up to put them in government housing, government cash assistance and they’re basically put into our welfare programs…”hell

The Senator also commented on calls made by intelligence heads for expanded surveillance powers in the wake of both the refugee influx and increased terrorism in Europe.

“There will always be those who advocate giving up your liberty in exchange for somehow getting more security, but what we’ve found when we’ve allowed warrantless searches… we didn’t catch any terrorists.”

Paul noted that France has a surveillance program that “invades privacy a thousand times more (than the US program) without restraints, and they didn’t stop this (Paris attack).

The Senator said that if we give up all our liberty in the face of terror threats then “what are we fighting for? What differentiates us from them?”

Nuclear annihilation across the globe. This is what a German reporter who successfully embedded with the Islamic State says the terror group is planning. Jurgen Todenhofer released his findings in a book titled “Inside IS – Ten Days in the Islamic State,” reports the UK’s Daily Express.

“The terrorists plan on killing several hundred million people. The west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS. ISIS intends to get its hands on nuclear weapons,” says Todenhofer, calling the group a “nuclear tsunami preparing the largest religious cleansing in history.”

“They now control land greater in size than the United Kingdom and are supported by an almost ecstatic enthusiasm the like of which I’ve never encountered before in a war zone. Every day hundreds of willing fighters from all over the world come. They are the most brutal and most dangerous enemy I have ever seen in my life. I don’t see anyone who has a real chance to stop them. Only Arabs can stop IS. I came back very pessimistic.”against America

With the ink not yet dry on the “Iran nuclear deal,” Middle Eastern states opposed to Persian domination of the region now are actively pursuing a nuclear weapons capability of their own. President Obama’s deal could literally mean an arms race that could lead to nuclear devastation as Saudi Arabia and others look to get the bomb as well to counter Iran. With more countries obtaining nukes, the greater the possibility terrorists could obtain a weapon, which could be used to attack Israel or the West.

Wealthy Gitmo Detainee With Family Ties To Bin Laden RELEASED To Saudi Arabia

A Public Affairs Officer escorts media through the currently closed Camp X-Ray which was the first detention facility to hold

against AmericaAbdul Shalabi, a Guantanamo detainee and former bodyguard of Osama bin Laden, was just released to Saudi Arabia, bringing the total number of detainees in the prison down to 114. This is the second transfer in under a week. Last week, the Department of Defense announced the release of Younis Abdurrahman Chekkouri to Morocco.

“The United States is grateful to the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its willingness to support ongoing U.S. efforts to close the muslim-obamaGuantanamo Bay detention facility. The United States coordinated with the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to ensure this transfer took place consistent with appropriate security and humane treatment measures,” the Defense Department said in a statement.

A detainee assessment from 2008 found that 39-year-old Shalabi, who comes from a wealthy and educated family, not only served as bin Laden’s bodyguard, but also has familial ties to the bin Laden family. Shalabi belonged to al-Qaida and was part of an aborted component of the September 11 attacks. But Shalabi consistently denied involvement and claimed to be a religious teacher.

On December 15, 2001, Pakistani authorities captured Shalabi along with 31 other al-Qaida fighters, who were fleeing from Tora Bora, Osama bin Laden’s mountain complex.

Near the end of December, authorities transferred Shalabi over to U.S. custody, who then was sent to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, where he stayed for 13 years.

At the time, the assessment determined Shalabi was too dangerous to release, but the board changed its mind in June, clearing him for release.

“The board also considered the detainee’s well-established family, their willingness and ability to support him upon his return, and their prior success in assisting with the rehabilitation and reintegration of a former Guantánamo detainee,” the review panel said.

There are 52 detainees left who have been cleared for release. The rest require further detention. President Barack Obama still wants to close the prison before his term is up, and so the Pentagon has investigated domestic facilities to hold detainees in the long-term if the administration manages to shutter Gitmo.Islam is NOT95b119e45c50cbea1e7a4fbfa33415f3 In God We Trust freedom combo 2

 

Saudi Arabia ISIS Sentences Juvenile To “Death By Crucifixion”…

The difference between how ISIS rules its “caliphate” and the way Saudi Arabia governs its country are paper thin at best.

Via IBT:

A prisoner in Saudi Arabia, who was sentenced to death as a child, faces “death by crucifixion” after a final appeal has been dismissed. Ali Mohammed al-Nimr was arrested on 14 February 2012 when he was just 17, during a crackdown on anti-government protests in the Shiite province of Qatif. He was accused by the authorities of participation in illegal protests and of firearms offences, despite there being no evidence to justify the latter charge.

Ali was initially held at a juvenile offenders facility, where he was denied access to lawyers. Evidence indicates that he was tortured and forced to sign a document which was tantamount to a confession. The signed document formed the basis of the case against him and he was convicted of the alleged offences by the Specialized Criminal Court (SCC). However, the trials failed to meet international standards. Ali and his family have strongly denied the charges against him, but, after the final appeal – which was held in secret and without Ali’s knowledge – was dismissed, there are few legal options remaining to oppose the sentence originally handed down on 27 May 2014. It is feared that Ali could be executed in a matter of days.Picture1

The case against Ali appears to be based on his familial connection to Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a 53-year old critic of the Saudi regime and a prominent religious leader in the Kingdom, who is his uncle. Mr Al Nimr was sentenced to death by crucifixion on charges including ‘insulting the King’ and delivering religious sermons that ‘disrupt national unity’. This week, it emerged that the authorities plan to execute Ali’s uncle on Thursday (17 September) sparking fears that his nephew will also be killed.

Pentagon Trained “Rebel” Group in Syria Pledges Allegiance to ISIS-aligned Al-Nusra

Pentagon Trained “Rebel” Group in Syria Pledges Allegiance to ISIS-aligned Al-Nusra

Division 30, also known as the New Syrian Forces, was created by the United States as part of a propaganda campaign to counter the fact virtually all of the mercenaries in Syria have gone over to the Islamic State.

On May 8 Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced 90 mercenaries had begun training with the Pentagon and would be trained at camps in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan. “These trainees are recruited, they’re vetted, and only then are they put into training,Carter said. In early July two-thirds of the Division 30 mercenaries, including the groups’s commander Nadim al-Hassan, were captured in Syria north of Aleppo by Jabhat al-Nusra fighters.

Jabhat al-Nusra is described by the corporate media as an al-Qaeda affiliate sworn to take down the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. In June, 2014, the group reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIS at Albu Kamal on the Syria-Iraq border.Picture5

The leader of al-Nusra, Abu Mussab al-Makdessi, said the ISIS fighters “remain our brothers” and the “ideological bond between us is stronger than anything. We are ready to fight by their side … our blood is their blood.”

Late Saturday it was reported seven members of Division 30 were released by al-Nusra and it was hoped Nadim al-Hassan would be released soon.

tw

The Division 30 statement described al-Nusra as “brothers” and went on to declare the Pentagon trained group is on the “same page with all holy warriors in Syria.”

Division 30 represented the last “vetted” non-jihadi mercenary group fighting to overthrow al-Assad in Syria. In November the Syrian Revolutionary Front handed over bases and weapons to Jabhat al-Nusra in the Idlib province.

“The Free Syrian Army and the Syrian National Council, the vaunted bulwarks of the moderate opposition, only really exist in hotel lobbies and the minds of Western diplomats,” Ben Reynolds wrote in November. “There is simply no real separation between ‘moderate’ rebel groups and hardline Salafists allied with al-Qaeda.”

“Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of,” The New York Times reported in April 2013.

The fate suffered by Division 30 demonstrates that the United States is not sincerely interested in forming a viable, non-jihadi paramilitary group in Syria. Division 30 was in effect a propaganda tool used to give the impression there are secular rebels in Syria dedicated to overthrowing al-Assad.

The game plan now calls for the establishment of a no-fly zone in northern Syria under the ruse of protecting civilians. On August 11 the prime minister of Turkey, Ahmet Davutoglu, called for a no-fly zone that will prevent Syria from conducting air raids against ISIS and other assorted radical Salafist groups. Russia and Iran have vowed to oppose the establishment of a no-fly zone over sovereign Syrian territory. Instead of a no-fly zone the United States and Turkey have agreed to establish a de facto “safe zone” along the Turkey-Syria border.What did you say 06.jpg

The Washington Post reported on July 26:

The agreement includes a plan to drive the Islamic State out of a 68-mile-long area west of the Euphrates River and reaching into the province of Aleppo that would then come under the control of the Syrian opposition. If fully implemented, it would also bring American planes in regular, close proximity to bases, aircraft and air defenses operated by the Syrian government, and directly benefit opposition rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.What did you say 04.jpg

As previously noted, there are virtually no moderate mercenary groups inside Syria.

The agreement will establish a safe haven for jihadist groups that represent the only viable force — short of direct U.S. military involvement and boots on the ground — capable of turning Syria into the next Libya, a failed state that does not challenge or resist the hegemony of the United States and Israel in the Middle East. Picture5

Where ISIS Has Directed and Inspired Attacks Around the World

Major events: Attacks directed by/linked to ISIS Attacks inspired by ISIS Arrests of suspected ISIS militants or supporters

  • CANADA
  • France
  • United States
  • IRAQ
  • SYRIA
  • Morocco
  • Libya
  • Egypt
  • Yemen
  • Nigeria

Countries in yellow are where ISIS has declared provinces.

  • Australia

The arrest on Saturday of a Queens college student on charges of conspiring with the Islamic State is just the most recent example of the group’s global strategy, which began about one year ago and has resulted in attacks or arrests in more than a dozen countries.
Late last June, the group, also known as ISIS or ISIL, declared a caliphate, or Islamic state, on the territory it controlled — and started to focus on three parallel tracks:

  • inciting regional conflict with attacks in Iraq and Syria;
  • building relationships with jihadist groups that can carry out military operations across the Middle East and North Africa;
  • and inspiring, and sometimes helping, ISIS sympathizers to conduct attacks in the West.

“The goal,” said Harleen Gambhir, an analyst at the Institute for the Study of War, “is that through these regional affiliates and through efforts to create chaos in the wider world, the organization will be able to expand, and perhaps incite a global apocalyptic war.”was

Beginning last fall, ISIS made repeated calls for attacks on the West, especially to followers in countries taking part in the American-led airstrike campaign in Iraq and Syria. So-called lone wolves have responded to these calls with relatively low-tech assaults — shootings, hostage takings, hit-and-runs — that tend to get a lot of attention.

The Queens man was arrested after a months long investigation found that he was planning to attack various New York City landmarks on behalf of the Islamic State, according to the authorities. “Al Qaeda always wanted to do spectacular attacks, but ISIS has reversed it,” said Patrick M. Skinner, a former C.I.A. operations officer now with the Soufan Group. “They don’t do spectacular attacks. They do attacks that generate spectacular reaction.”muslim-obama

ISIS Declares Provinces Across the Region

Declared providences

Islam is NOTISIS activity across the Middle East and North Africa has also surged. The group declared official provinces — or wilayat — in areas of Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Yemen that had networks loyal to ISIS, many of which have adopted the organization’s signature brutality. It is an “open question” to what extent the core leadership of ISIS is communicating with its affiliates, Mr. Skinner said. While ISIS is providing support to some groups, there is no hard evidence that it is able to direct the activities of a regional wilayat as part of a cohesive campaign.

But Ms. Gambhir noted that a recent rocket attack on a multinational force in the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt may be a sign that ISIS is seeing its abilities mature. The attack could be seen as part of a larger strategy to fracture the American-led airstrike coalition. “We haven’t assessed yet if that’s an intentional orchestration by ISIS,” Ms. Gambhir said. “We’re on heightened alert to look for things like that because it would indicate a new level of capability for the organization.”Obama Muslim collection

Seeking to Spark Sectarian War, ISIS Bombs Saudi Arabia

Twenty people were killed and more than 50 were wounded.
isis_flagThe Islamic State (ISIS) suicide bombing in Saudi Arabia on May 23 is significant in that it’s the group’s first claimed suicide bombing in the country, but it’s also a strategic move to spark sectarian upheaval in the Shiite-majority province that holds 90% of royal family’s oil reserves.

The Islamic State is trying to spark a cycle of sectarian violence that will destabilize Saudi Arabia and heighten the Royal Family’s tension with Iran. The terror group thrives in environments where Shiites(*) feel they need Iranian protection and where Sunnis(*) feel threatened by real or imagined Iranian influence. The Saudi Eastern Province has the added benefit of endangering the Royal Family’s most critical resource.

The bombing’s objective is to spur Islamic State supporters in Saudi Arabia into action against the Shiites and the royal family. An October 2014 poll found that 5% of the Saudi population of 29 million has a positive opinion of the Islamic State (2% very positive and 3% somewhat positive).

The Saudi population includes about 8.5 million foreign residents, and it is unclear if they are included in the poll. This means that the Islamic State has a pool of somewhere between 1 million and 1.45 million supporters in Saudi Arabia that could be inspired to act. The prospects for the Islamic State are much brighter if an atmosphere of sectarian warfare is instigated; a scenario that can be easily envisioned.

The sensitivity of the Saudi royal family to the bombing’s impact on sectarianism was evident in the immediate booking of the grand mufti on state television to condemn the attack on “sons of the homeland.” The language was deliberately chosen to assure the Shiite minority that the Saudi government cares about their well-being and to distance itself from any Salafists(*) who may cheer the bombing.

The New York Timesreported on how Saudis were declining to donate blood in the wake of the Islamic State bombing, deriding them as infidels and one saying that a Shiite “does not deserve even my spit.” Although there are Saudi Sunnis who stand up for Shiites — like one prominent human rights activist who is a leader in the Shammar tribe — their rarity is apparent in the very fact that their activism makes news headlines.

The Saudi government may deploy Salafist-dominated security forces to the Eastern Province to prevent attacks and to stop the Shiites from holding large demonstrations of grief that could easily turn political and demand better treatment.

The Eastern Province is known for its protests against the Saudi government and subsequent arrests of activists and clerics demanding an end to discrimination and democratic reform. The leader of the Municipal Council in Qatif, where the bombing took place, has already blamed the Saudi government for promoting anti-Shiite sentiment.

Through the bombing, the Islamic State has created a catch-22: Any move by the Saudi government to enhance security in the province risks inflaming the passions of the Shiites, resulting in clashes and oppression that further the cycle.

The popularity of Sunni terrorist groups known for oppressing Shiites is a strong indication of how quickly sectarian fervor could sweep across Saudi Arabia, particularly if there are mass Shiite protests and Iran rallies to their side.

The aforementioned poll found that 52% of Saudis support Hamas and 33% support the Muslim Brotherhood(*). A November 2014 poll by Zogby showed that Saudi Arabia is the only Middle Eastern besides Turkey where a majority (53%) feel that the Muslim Brotherhood played a positive role in Egypt and Tunisia.

A frightening 15% of Saudis most favor Al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra, among all the forces fighting the Syrian regime. About 9% support the Islamic Front, a Saudi-backed Salafist group and 3% preferred the Islamic State.

The Iranian regime and its radical Shiite proxies like Hezbollah and the Houthis are looking for an opportunity to strike back at the Saudis for their military intervention in Yemen and ongoing support for Syrian rebels. There is no better opportunity than upheaval in the Eastern Province, especially at this time when Iran’s economy is suffering from low oil prices.

The objective of the bombing in Qatif is to make Saudi Arabia an extension of the Shiite-Sunni battlefield seen in Iraq, Syria and Yemen. And the Islamic State isn’t crazy for thinking it could happen. Picture8

Caruba: Obama’s Middle East Debacle


May 18, 2015 By


Cartoon - Obama No Islamic Threat

IslamapologistI had to laugh when I heard that the new King of Saudi Arabia, Salmon, told the White House he wasn’t going to attend Thursday’s photo-op get together of Arab leaders. Some lesser Saudi officials will attend. The message is clear enough, so long as Obama continues to make nice with Iran, the center of the problems in the Middle East, the Saudis and the others are going to be wary of any proposal that comes out of the White House.

As far as the Middle East is concerned, Obama seems to have no idea of the history or the dynamics that affect all the actions there. His Secretary of State, Kerry, is no better. He met with Arab officials last Friday and they told him they want a defense treaty in the event they were attacked by “external forces”, something that the Congress will not approve so long as Obama is in the White House.
One would think that any President at this point would have concluded that the Palestinians have no intention of signing onto a peace treaty with the Israelis. 

Writing in The New York Times on May 8, Jonathan Schanzer, vice president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, put it bluntly, “It doesn’t matter what these politicians think now or have said in in the past. Peace between Israel and the Palestinians is not happening in the next two years.” That’s how long we all have to wait until Obama leaves office.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman

David P.Goldman, a Senior Fellow of the Middle East Forum, writing in Asia Times Online on May 10, spelled it out.
“It is inconvenient for diplomats to say so, but the Palestinian Authority collapsed quite some time ago,” noting that “President Mahmoud Abbas’ term in office began in 2005 and ended six years ago, and he has not called new elections for the simple reason that Hamas—the Palestinian branch of the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood—would win those elections.”  These days the Egyptians label Hamas a terrorist organization and have taken steps to eliminate the Brotherhood. At least they know who the enemy is. 
Obama has been antagonistic to Israel from before he was elected and has made little effort to hide it. Consider this, as Goldman notes, “Hamas fired over 4,000 rockets at Israel in 2014, prompting Israeli counterstrikes during the summer.” Its declared intention and the reason for its existence is to eliminate the State of Israel. Why are we surprised to hear that Obama wants to take the statehood issue to the United Nations, a hotbed of anti-Semitism, and has little to say of the Palestinian Authority’s assertion that it wants to drag Israel in front of the International Criminal Court for having defended itself against the attacks by Hamas!
 
Not only has the Saudi King sent Obama a message, but so did the Israelis when they overwhelmingly reelected Benjamin Netanyahu as their Prime Minister. “The Israelis look around the Middle East and see nothing but conflict, carnage, instability and danger,” said Schanzer. “The Obama doctrine—which includes a deliberate contraction of American power in the Middle East—has undeniably made Israel less safe.”

It has made the U.S. and the world less safe too. 

One of the most obscene aspects of the Obama obsession with Iran is that, in return for any deal—which Iran would ignore and cheat—they are ready “to provide as much as $120 billion in sanctions relief to satisfy the narrow technical parameters of a nuclear deal, which would legitimize Iran as a threshold nuclear state. These funds,” said Schanzer, “will flow to Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other Iran terror proxies dedicated to Israel’s demise.” 
To put all this in perspective, as Goldman reminds us, “From Israel’s standpoint, the Palestinian Authority was offered 95% of Judea and Samaria in return for a final peace agreement, and both times (at Camp David in 1999 under Ehud Barack and in 2008 under Ehud Olmert) the offer was rejected.” 
“The U.N. Security Council,” said Goldman, “will punish Israel for the failure of negotiations that were meaningless to begin with, and establish a Hamas-controlled state within nine miles of the Mediterranean coast. Iran has already promised to arm West Bank Arabs, just as it armed Hezbollah and Hamas.”muslim-obama

Israel which has enjoyed the support of the United States since it declared its independence in 1948 is now put at risk by the first administration to deliberately turn its back on it in preference for a deal with the leading terror-sponsor, Iran, in the Middle East.

You cannot make a greater mess of the mess that already exists in the Middle East, but Obama is doing his best to add to it. What else should we expect from a President who refuses to utter words like “Islamic terrorism”?Obama Muslim collection

Iranian ship convoy moves toward Yemen, alarming US officials


waving flagBy Kristina Wong – 04/17/15

U.S. military officials are concerned that Iran’s support for Houthi rebels in Yemen could spark a confrontation with Saudi Arabia and plunge the region into sectarian war. Iran is sending an armada of seven to nine ships — some with weapons — toward Yemen in a potential attempt to resupply the Shia Houthi rebels, according to two U.S. defense officials. Officials fear the move could lead to a showdown with the U.S. or other members of a Saudi-led coalition, which is enforcing a naval blockade of Yemen and is conducting its fourth week of airstrikes against the Houthis. 

Iran sent a destroyer and another vessel to waters near Yemen last week but said it was part of a routine counter-piracy mission. 

What’s unusual about the new deployment, which set out this week, is that the Iranians are not trying to conceal it, officials said. Instead, they appear to be trying to “communicate it” to the U.S. and its allies in the Gulf. It is not clear what will happen as the convoy comes closer to Yemen. Saudi Arabia has deployed ships around Yemen to enforce the blockade, as has Egypt. An official said the ship convoy could try to land at a port in Aden, which the Houthis have taken over. 

Although the U.S. is assisting with the Saudi-led air campaign, it is not participating in the naval blockade of Yemen, said U.S. Central Command spokesman Col. Pat Ryder. However, the U.S. Navy is in the region and has already “consensually boarded” one Panamanian-flagged ship in the Red Sea on April 1 on the suspicion it was illegally carrying arms for the Houthis. None were found, but the move raised alarm bells in Washington over an increasingly active U.S. military role in the conflict. The Pentagon indicated this week that more boardings could occur. 

“We will continue to vigilantly defend freedom of navigation and to conduct consensual searches in an effort to ensure that drugs, human trafficking, weapons trafficking and other contraband are limited,” Army Col. Steve Warren said on Monday. 

Officials fear a naval confrontation between Iran and Saudi Arabia could escalate what has become a proxy war between the two countries.

The U.S. has been supporting the airstrikes with intelligence and logistical support, and last week began refueling Saudi fighter jets. Administration officials say it is important to support Saudi Arabia. 

Earlier this week, a senior State Department official said the U.S. would try to ensure that a United Nations Security Council arms embargo against Houthi leadership is enforced. “We will be taking very careful look and examining very closely efforts to violate the embargo,” senior State Department official Gerald Feierstein told the House Foreign Affairs Committee. 

The deepening of the conflict comes as the U.S. hopes to reach a deal with Iran to roll back its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. Officials say U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition has not affected the negotiations with Iran. The conflict also threatens to complicate U.S.’s relations with Iraq. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, an Iran ally, criticized Saudi Arabia for its airstrike campaign during a visit to Washington this week. 

U.S. officials say they are unsure why Iran is making the brazen move. One theory they have floated is that the Saudi-led coalition has effectively blockaded any air routes into Yemen and there are no other ways to resupply the Houthis. Another theory is that Iran is trying to distract the coalition from another ship it has tried hard to conceal that is currently docked at Oman — a potential land route for smuggling arms into Yemen. Yet another theory is that Iran wants to force a confrontation with Saudi Arabia that it believes it will win, because Iran views the Saudi military as weak and suspects the U.S. lacks the willpower to support its Gulf ally. 

Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei last week on Twitter taunted Saudi Arabia, calling its military puny and smaller than Israel’s. He also said the air campaign was tantamount to genocide of innocent Yemeni civilians and that the U.S. would also fail in Yemen. 

U.S. officials say they hope the airstrikes will force Houthis to the negotiating table in order to restore stability in Yemen, where America faces a terrorist threat from al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). “We’re assisting the Saudis to protect their own territory and to conduct operations that are designed to lead ultimately to a political settlement to Yemen,” said Defense Secretary Ashton Carter on Thursday. “That’s good for the people of Yemen, first and foremost. It’s good for Saudi Arabia that doesn’t need this on its southern border.  And … it’s good for us, among other reasons, because of AQAP’s presence in Yemen. But for that to occur, it’ll require more than military action,” he added.

Sunni Islam’s Highest Authority: PEDOPHILIA Kosher, Halal! Say What?


Posted by Adina KutnickiAdina KutnickiJanuary 7, 2015

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://joeforamerica.com/2015/01/sunni-islams-highest-authority-pedophilia-kosher-halal-say/

MOST civilized folks can agree that pedophilia is a monstrous violation. A vile crime. In this regard, aside from everything else, is there any other “religion” which sanctions, “koshers”, it? DIDN’T think so…

Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Muslim girl
{This little toddler is “kosher” to marry, so deemed by the highest authorities in Saudi Arabia, Sunni Islam’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh…others will follow suit!}

THE normative legal definition of the crime of pedophilia is very clear and without ambiguity. It specifies sexual engagement – direct contact with males or females – who are under the legal age of consent. Child molestation is its cornerstone.Pedophiles

IT matters not a whit that the medical community has labeled it a “disease”, as has been done with addiction, specifically alcoholism. In others words, when material harm is caused to another, it is neither here nor there – to the victim – what labels are used to “explain” away ones actions.

NOW, no one who is honestly familiar with the “Black Heart(s)” of Islam can deny: its underpinnings support the most heinous crimes imaginable. That’s a fact.

David Gaubatz:

When I was in Iraq I had the opportunity to interview several captured Al Qaeda members. I asked them what type of future attacks America would endure. The answer over and over was that the hearts of Americans would be attacked. They explained that this meant the American children would be attacked because they are the hearts of the American people. These terrorists said the attacks would not necessarily be physical attacks, but rather a slow indoctrination in U.S. public schools and universities. The indoctrinating would include the Islamic ideology is peaceful and even as non-Muslims they support Islam and the Muslim people.against America

I have had several Islamic leaders tell me that Muslims who practice ‘Pure Islam’ have what is called ‘Black Hearts’. These Muslims had no conscience, feelings, emotions, love or caring about anything or anyone aside from Allah. Essentially they have no souls. They have an empty heart. These people have no feelings for even their own children; needless to say they have no feelings for children who are not theirs. It is just as easy for them to behead a neighbor child as it would be to behead even their own children. Children are simply a tool for them to use to achieve their ultimate goal of an Islamic Ummah (nation) under Shariah law.

Based on my experiences and studies, the Islamic ideology itself is a dangerous and violent weapon. The true enemies of the non-Muslim world are the ideology of Islam. We can fight and defeat Hamas, Al Qaeda, ISIS, and the dozens of other Islamic acronyms, but we will lose in the end if at some point we do not target the ideology they teach within most mosques. When someone discusses the Hitler ideology of hate and violence, almost automatically people get a sour feeling in their stomachs. Most people realize the ideology of Hitler was a danger to the whole world. Sadly in order to defeat Islamic based terrorists we must have the same sour feeling in our stomach when Islam itself is discussed. Islam is not loving and peaceful and Mohammed never intended for it to be. AND if more substantive proof is required regrading the way Islam treats women and children, well, slavery and Islam’s “dancing boys” should suffice – or not.

BUT to understand the latest Islamic fatwa…فتاوى…is to internalize what it means, both from an Islamic jurisprudence rendering and a cultural one. INTRINSICALLY, while sex with children has always been an Islamic “norm”, the fact that it is now a MAJOR legal rendering, well….  You should know that the “religion of peace” says it’s perfectly okay for an adult male to “marry,” that is, rape the girl.

F. Michael Maloof reports for WND, Jan. 3, 2015, that none other than Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti, Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh, the country’s top religious authority in the ultra-conservative Wahhabi school of Sunni Islam, has ruled it’s acceptable for men to marry girls so young the West would deem it nothing short of pedophilia and rape. As Grand Mufti, Abdulaziz is president of the Supreme Council of Ulema (Islamic scholars) and chairman of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research and Issuing Fatwas, which means he speaks authoritatively in Islamic teachings. The Saudi justice ministry had tried but failed to set 15 as a minimum age to marry a girl in the kingdom. But Grand Mufti Abdulaziz does it even “better,” declaring there is nothing prohibiting Muslim men from marrying girls even younger. 

Saudi Grand Mufti Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh
Grand Mufti Abdulaziz

Grand Mufti Abdulzaiz’s more recent ruling on marrying young girls comes following a similar ruling in 2011 by Dr. Salih bin Fawzan, a prominent cleric and member of the Saudi’s highest religious council, who issued a fatwa, or religious edict, that there is no minimum age to marry girls, “even if they are in the cradle.”

There is nothing in Islamic, or Shariah law, that sets a minimum age limit on marrying girls.

Scholars say the age of marrying young girls and consummating the “marriage” is based on the example set by Muhammad when he married Aisha when she was no more than seven years of age, consummating the marriage when she was nine.

“The grand point of the Saudi fatwa, however, is not that girls as young as nine can be married, based on Muhammad’s example, but rather that there is no age limit whatsoever,” Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim writes in Middle East Forum. “The only question open to consideration is whether the girl is physically capable of handling her ‘husband.’ The lives of countless young girls are devastated because of this teaching.”

Ibrahim cited the cases of an 8-year-old girl who died on her “wedding” night when her “husband” raped her; and a 10-year-old girl who hid from her 80-year-old “husband.” Grand Mufti Abdulaziz and Fawzan’s fatwas come even as Saudi men have been reportedly purchasing young girls from Syrian refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan. As WND recently reported, rich Saudi Arabian men – some associated with the Saudi royal family – have been purchasing for their sexual pleasure Syrian girls and young women from among the hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing the Syrian civil war conflict to Lebanon and Jordan. Most of these Saudi men are said to be in their 60s and 70s. When they tire of the girls, they often hand them off to other men.

“They come into Lebanon and Jordan and go to the Syrian refugee camps where the Syrian families there have nothing,” one Lebanese source told WND. “The Saudis then offer $200 for girls aged 9 to 14 years and take them from their families. Because the families are so desperate for money, they give in to the temptation.”

The United States, allied with Saudi Arabia, has been silent on its treatment of young girls.Obama Muslim collection

MIND you, whenever a truth-teller posits that Islam’s “prophet”, Muhammad, was a pedophile – plus other charges  – the fury which hails from Muslims and their apologists rains down like wild fire. Explosive-laden.

GRANTED, pedophilia is rampant throughout the west. And the putrid fact is that its vile grasp reaches into the lowest strata of society to the highest. It is an equal opportunity scourge. GO ask those who hob nob with kingpin Jeffrey Epstein – accused pedophile du jour of the jet set – namely, Billy boy Clinton aka Bubba, global warming huskster Al Gore, Prince Andrew and all the rest of the movers and shakers who either partook, or knew but looked aside. Israel’s ex PM Ehud Barak (when he was Defense Minister) flew on Epstein’s private jet and likely witnessed this and that deviance and criminal behavior, but that didn’t stop him (or other high level politicians et al.) from palling around with a pedophile! Oh my…

It has previously been reported that at varying times President Clinton, Prince Andrew, former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak, New Mexico’s ex-governor Bill Richardson and the former US treasury secretary Larry Summers had all been passengers on Epstein’s fleet of private jets

MONSTROUS appetites…the whole damnable lot of them. NEVERTHELESS, no religion, other than Islam’s death cult, sanctions it!

IF the argument becomes, well, the above is a distinction without a difference, then there is little left to say, other than that Islam is compatible with “acceptable” western norms (other than those held by deviants who are rich, poor or in between) and we should all just get over it. Go back to sleep.

AS porky pig has been known to say, that’s all folks!

Investor: “Terrifying” Consequences if Oil Drops to $40

Investor: "Terrifying" Consequences if Oil Drops to $40
Geopolitical turmoil draws nearer as oil drops below $50 for first time since 2009 // Image Credits: Eric Kounce, Wikimedia Commons

As the price of oil drops below $50 for the first time since 2009, noted investor Jeffrey Gundlach warns that a fall to $40 dollars a barrel could spark “terrifying” geopolitical consequences.

The February contract for West Texas Intermediate briefly fell to a session low of $49.95 earlier today, while Brent crude also hit a 5-½-year low.

However, according to influential investor Gundlach, founder of Doubleline Capital, a fall to $40 could set in motion devastating global developments.

 “Oil is incredibly important right now,” Gundlach said in a recent interview with Fu W. “If oil falls to around $40 a barrel then I think the yield on ten year treasury note is going to 1%. I hope it does not go to $40 because then something is very, very wrong with the world, not just the economy. The geopolitical consequences could be – to put it bluntly – terrifying.”Cloward Pevin with explanation

As Zero Hedge points out, Gundlach is right to draw a correlation between unstable price fluctuations in crude oil and geopolitical turmoil.

“Large and rapid rises and falls in the price of crude oil have correlated oddly strongly with major geopolitical and economic crisis across the globe. Whether driven by problems for oil exporters or oil importers, the ‘difference this time’ is that, thanks to central bank largesse, money flows faster than ever and everything is more tightly coupled with that flow.”

The last time we saw anything like this activity in terms of oil price, it turned out to be a precursor to the global financial collapse of 2008.

“A junk bond implosion is usually a signal that a major stock market crash is on the way. So if you are looking for a “canary in the coal mine”, keep your eye on the performance of energy junk bonds. If they begin to collapse, that is a sign that all hell is about to break loose on Wall Street,” writes Michael Snyder.War on Prosperity COMPLETEeconomy bus wheels coming off

As we have previously documented, the sudden drop in the price of oil has much to do with an engineered attack on the Russian economy and the Ruble which is being led by Saudi Arabia and the Obama White House. The ultimate goal is to destabilize the Russian government and foment a color revolution.Cloward Pevin with explanation

This agenda was summed up by Paul Stevens, a fellow for the secretive Royal Institute of International Affairs based at Chatham House in London.

“If the governments aren’t able to spend to keep the kids off the streets they will go back to the streets, and we could start to see political disruption and upheaval,” wrote Stevens.

The US and the Saudis have resolved to crash the price of oil and with it Russia’s financial system despite the fact that this will also cripple the European economy. Russia has even proposed that the EU dump the TTIP free trade agreement with the United States and instead join the newly established Eurasian Economic Union.com01

“The U.S. and European sanctions against Russia will become more severe and crippling in the face of drastically falling oil prices – prices which are falling drastically because of the unprecedented boom of shale gas fracking both domestically in the U.S. and abroad in Ukraine and other locales,” writes Mac Slavo. “The oil & gas giants like Chevron and Exxon Mobil have created revolutionary conditions with now direct consequences on U.S. foreign policy and global war for dominance.”Tyrant Obama

The True Reason Gas Prices are Falling (Hint: It’s Not Because of Green Energy)


MId Term drawing

Posted by Stephen Moore / / October 26, 2014

<!– Gas Prices dipping below the $3.00 mark in some parts of the country in New York. In fact, industry reports say that gas has dropped a full 20 cents in the past month. Now 10 states are reporting gas that weighs in under $3 per gallon, with predictions that many other states will soon follow.

Portrait of Stephen Moore Stephen Moore/

American workers and motorists got some badly-needed relief this week when the price of oil plunged to its lowest level in years. The oil price has fallen by about 25 percent since its peak back in June of $105 a barrel.  This is translating to lower prices at the pump with many states now below $3 a gallon.

At present levels, these lower oil and gas prices are the equivalent of a $200 billion cost saving to American consumers and businesses. That’s $200 billion a year we don’t have to send to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other foreign nations. Now that’s an economic stimulus par excellence.

obamamoney1There are many global reasons why gas prices are falling, but the major one isn’t being widely reported. America has become in the last several years an energy-producing powerhouse.  And sorry, Mr. President, I’m not talking about the niche “green energy” sources you are so weirdly fixated with.

Oil prices are falling because of changes in world supply and world demand. Demand has slowed because Europe is an economic wreck. But since 2008 the U.S. has increased our domestic supply by a gigantic 50 percent. This is a result of the astounding shale oil and gas revolution made possible by made-in-America technologies like hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling.  Already thanks to these inventions, the U.S. has become the number one producer of natural gas. But oil production in states like Oklahoma, Texas and North Dakota has doubled in just six years.

Without this energy blitz, the U.S. economy would barely have recovered from the recession of 2008-09. From the beginning of 2008 through the end of 2013 the oil and gas extraction industry created more than 100,000 jobs while the overall job market shrank by 970,000.When the radical greens carry around signs saying “No to Fracking,” they couldn’t be promoting a more anti-America message. It would be like Nebraska not growing corn.

We are just skimming the surface of our super-abundant oil and gas resources.  New fields have been discovered in Texas and North Dakota that could contain hundreds of years of shale oil and gas supplies.comment 01

Here’s another reason to love the oil and gas bonanza in America. It’s breaking the back of OPEC.  Saudi Arabia is deluging the world with oil right now, which is driving the world price relentlessly lower. The Arabs understand–as too few in Washington do–that shale energy boom is no short term fad. It could make energy cheaper for decades to come.  As American drillers get better at perfecting the technologies of cracking through shale rock to get to the near infinite treasure chest supplies of energy locked inside, we will soon overtake Saudi Arabia as the dominant player in world energy markets.

You can’t have a cartel if the world’s largest producer–America–isn’t a member. OPEC will never again be able to create the level of economic turmoil that the Arab members of OPECs engineered in the 1970s with their oil embargo. And by the way: lower oil prices place increased pressure on Iran’s mullahs to abandon their nuclear program and curb Putin’s capabilities to engage in East Europe aggression.

Yet the political class still doesn’t get it. As recently as 2012 President Obama declared that “the problem is we use more than 20 percent of the world’s oil and we only have 2 percent of the world’s proven oil reserves.”  Then he continued with his Malthusian nonsense,  “Even if we drilled every square inch of this country right now, we’d still have to rely disproportionately on other countries for their oil.” Apparently, neither he nor his fact checkers have ever been to Texas or North Dakota.  And we don’t have 2 percent of the world’s oil. Including estimates of onshore and offshore resources not yet officially “discovered”, we have ten times more than the stat quoted by the president–resources sufficient to supply hundreds of years of oil and gas.

America, in sum, has been richly endowed with a nearly invincible 21st century economic and national security weapon to keep us safe and prosperous. The plunge in gas prices is just one visible sign of this supply explosion.  Think of how much bigger this revolution could be if we started building pipelines, repealed the ban on oil exports, expanded drilling on public lands, and stopped trying to punitively tax and regulate the oil and gas.comment 02

For much of the last forty years, oil’s periodic price spikes have remained a constant threat to growth. Higher consumer energy costs as well as increased industrial production costs weighted on the economy. Now oil is one of the primary accelerators; the new big drag on the economy is politicians who despise the carbon-based industry.

SAUDI ARABIA: Time for an American Re-examination?


Obamacare

 http://clashdaily.com/2014/09/saudi-arabia-time-us-re-examination/

Written by Andrew Linn on September 15, 2014

Imperial President ObamaThe Saudis. They are supposed to be our allies, yet they have their fair share of Islamists. Saudi Arabia is also one of the most repressive countries in the world when it comes to human rights and freedom of religion.

Islam is the state religion (since Mecca and Medina are located in the country) thus the practice of all other religions is forbidden. Symbols and books of other faiths are confiscated by the authorities. Hence, sharia law is the law of the land.

And when it comes to the Saudi authorities, the most notorious entity is the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice’s Mutaween (religious police).Christian Persecution

Imperial Islamic President ObamaResponsible for enforcing sharia law throughout the kingdom, they are practically a group of thugs who seem to enjoy abusing their power. There have been instances of brutality and cases over trivial incidents (a woman was harassed over eating an ice cream cone- the licking of it must have been too much for the Mutaween). The Mutaween was even responsible for the deaths of fifteen girls in 2002 when their school was on fire (in which the mutaween refused to let the girls exit the building because they were not properly covered). The Mutaween even went so far as to attack people who were trying to rescue the girls.

Slavery is another matter when it comes to pointing out how repressive the Saudis can be. There have been various instances of Saudis’ enslaving people from other nations (particularly from Asia) under the guise of hiring them as domestic servants. When the servants arrive, their passports are confiscated and they are forced to work seven days a week (with hardly any time off). In addition, they are subject to physical, verbal, and sexual abuse.

One particular case is that of Homaidan Al-Turki, a Saudi national who settled in Colorado. In 2006, Al-Turki and his wife were arrested for enslaving their female housekeeper from Indonesia. During the criminal proceedings, Al-Turki tried to claim he was a victim of prejudice toward Muslims/Arabs. He even went so far as to say that “the state has criminalized these actions.”

Of course, one should recall that the Koran endorses slavery. The arrest of the Al-Turkis strained relations between America and the Saudis, and the Colorado Attorney General had to travel to Riyadh to smooth things over. Apparently, America’s alliance with Saudi Arabia (and its dependence on foreign oil) hung in the balance.Eagle Really

You also might recall my article in April of 2013 on Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, whose entrepreneurial influence into News Corporation (the parent company of Fox News) and elsewhere is quite disturbing, as is his support of the Islamist cause.

In conclusion, America needs to examine its alliance and policies regarding Saudi Arabia (and other Muslim countries for that matter). Drilling for oil here (thus eliminating our dependence on foreign oil) would be a good start. Economic sanctions and the freezing of assets might not be such a bad idea, either.

Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter Buckles to Islamic Supremacists Hamas-CAIR

There’s an old saying that people will only change when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing. When applied to cowardice in the face of Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S., far too many institutions choose fear over courage. The latest example comes courtesy of a KAKE news report out of Wichita, KS. If this keeps up, the pain of staying the same will only exceed the pain of changing when there’s blood in the streets.

Sheriffs with badges are required – REQUIRED – to eschew cowardice. Yet, far too few do.

cair As Shoebat.com has reported in the past, Guandolo made an explosive claim that CIA Director John Brennan converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia in the 1990′s. The news report above identifies this claim – as well as one about Barack Obama’s “allegiances” to Islam as being the reason why Guandolo’s training was canceled.

This begs a simple question: Why would groups like CAIR object to claims that Obama and Brennan have allegiances to Islam? Wouldn’t they be proud of such claims? Wouldn’t they like to promote such things? Wouldn’t it make their religion look good and give it more prominence?

Shame on the Sheriff. It’s obvious he’s not fit for the job he holds. As a protector of his county, courage and toughness is a requirement. Instead, he more closely resembles Barney Fife. Here is a scene from the Andy Griffith show do demonstrate what just happened in Kansas using a metaphor. Here, Fife represents the Sedgwick County Sheriff and Opie represents CAIR. Griffith represents Guandolo, who can do little more than shake his head:

Media Silent on Crucifixion of Christians by Islamic Jihadists


http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/05/media-silent-crucifixion-of-christians-islamic-jihadists/#8UaAyD5J36IdmsEk.99

Reported by

How sick and twisted do you have to be to crucify a little child for being a Christian? Of course you never heard about this from the mainstream media, but that is exactly what happened in Syria recently

crus 02Sister Raghida, former head of a Christian school in Damascus explained the horrific event. “Islam or death” was the choice given to many Christians in Syria on Tuesday during the height of the conflict in Syria. She said many Syrian Christians have been affected by the atrocities taking place in the Christian population of the Middle Eastern country, an area once known for the harmonious coexistence of Muslims and Christians.

According to Sister Raghida, the Muslims came to the two youths and said, “So you want to die as a teacher in whom you trust? Please choose: either to renounce (faith) or you will be crucified!”

The boys both refused to renounce faith in Jesus Christ and were martyred because of it. One of them was crucified in front of his father, who was then killed. The nun went on to tell the radio station that the Jihadists entered the city of Maaloula and started killing men, women, and children. According to her report, they killed and played football with the heads of those murdered. Sister Raghida also said the killers took pregnant women and pulled out the babies from their wombs and hung them from a tree by their umbilical cords.

This kind of brutality is absolutely unprecedented!

crus 03Who has ever heard of such a thing being done to pregnant women and children?

You would think that crimes of this magnitude would be front page news all over the globe.

But instead, there is mostly just silence.

About the only mainstream news outlet in the U.S. that will even touch this stuff is Fox News. And even they don’t give it front page treatment. Usually you have to really dig to find a brief story about the slaughter of Christians that we are seeing all over the planet.

The following is an excerpt from a Fox News story about another incident of crucifixion that just happened recently…

Al Qaeda-backed jihadists are hanging the bodies of executed enemies on crosses crucifixion-style in a town in Northern Syria, according to a Syrian opposition group.

The executions reportedly took place Tuesday in Raqqa, where the extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, an Al Qaeda-linked network, has taken over the city, according to Abu Ibrahim Alrquaoui, who identifies himself as a founder of a group called Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently.

As I mentioned above, the jihadists that are doing this have the support of Saudi Arabia and the United States. The Obama administration and the Saudia are desperate to overthrow the Syrian government, and Obama seems to have no problem allying us with some of the most despicable jihadists on the entire planet in order to make that happen.

The brutality against Christians by U.S.-backed fighters has been going on for month after month with very little notice by the outside world. Just check out what has been going on in one little village in the middle of the war zone…

For a major part of the past year, it was occupied by Islamist Syrian rebels associated with al-Qaida who took advantage of its commanding position over Maaloula to help keep their grip on this Christian village. During the occupation of the village by the Saudi- and U.S.-supported rebels, strict Shariah law was enforced. Those Christians not able to flee were treated as slaves. Several Christian men were beheaded, and many of the women were forced into “temporary” marriages with multiple Islamic fighters.

And of course Syria is far from the only place where we see this kind of brutality on a consistent basis. For example, Christians are regularly slaughtered by radical jihadists in Nigeria. The following is just one recent example

While many of us were enjoying our Friday evenings, a massacre was taking place in Nigeria that left between 100 and 150 Christians dead and around 200 homes burned to the ground.

At around 10pm Nigeria time last night while villagers were asleep, more than 40 Fulani herdsmen attacked the Ungwan Gata, Me-Sankwai and Tekum villages in Manchok (Kaura Local Government), which is located in Southern Kaduna, Nigeria. Southern Kaduna is a predominantly Christian.

These jihadi attackers first set fire to homes and when the Christians attempted to escape their homes, they were shot dead or butchered with machetes. The ones who could not escape their homes burned to death.

No one attacked was spared, including women and children. A pastor, his wife, and their children, of one of the villages, were said to be among the butchered.

Have you heard about that incident before now?

Probably not.

You see, the truth is that the elite control the “matrix” known as the mainstream media, and they don’t consider such stories to be important.

You probably haven’t heard about the young Christian woman that was dragged out of her car and beaten to death by a Muslim mob in Egypt either. Fortunately, there are some non-mainstream outlets that are covering this

Eyewitnesses have given a harrowing account of the murder in Cairo of a young Coptic Christian woman, hauled out of her car and beaten and stabbed to death by a Muslim mob, apparently targeted because of a cross hanging from her rear-view mirror.

And to say that she was “beaten to death” doesn’t really capture the full horror of what happened to her…

Protestors climbed onto her car, collapsing the roof, then hauled her from the vehicle, beating and mauling her – to the extent, he said, that portions of her scalp were torn off. She was stabbed multiple times, her throat was slit and when she was dead, the mob torched her car.

This is evil to the highest degree.

But even in the midst of the slowest news year in ages, the mainstream media still won’t touch this stuff.

There is an extreme hesitance in the western world to report anything that will put Muslims in a bad light or put Christians in a good light.

Meanwhile, as Christians are being slaughtered by Muslims all over the globe, the western world is doing all that it can to shut down criticism of Islam.

For instance, the leader of a political party in the UK could be facing up to two years in prison for the “hate crime” of quoting Winston Churchill

Political party leader Paul Weston was arrested by police and faces up to two years in jail for criticizing the religion of Islam during a public speech in the United Kingdom.

Weston’s “racially aggravated” hate crime consisted of him quoting Winston Churchill.

Weston’s arrest reveals the chilling implementation of thought crime in Britain and how political correctness is being used as a weapon with which to destroy the edifice of freedom of speech across the western world.

The following is what appears to be the quote that got Weston in trouble

“The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities – but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.”

And in the U.S., great efforts are being made to make Muslims as comfortable as possible in our schools. Even as Christian prayers are being banned, entire prayer rooms are being set aside for Muslim students in schools all over the country. In addition, many school systems are now giving students days off during major Muslim holidays. In fact, this will soon be happening in New York City

(Have you heard of the ACLU or the atheist complaining about this? JB)

New York City is moving to close school for two Muslim holidays and the Lunar New Year — but Mayor de Blasio isn’t so sure about the Hindu festival Diwali.

Appearing on WNYC’s “Brian Lehrer Show” on Monday, the mayor said he hadn’t taken a position on whether Diwali, the festival of lights celebrated in India and other South Asian countries, should be a day off from school.

But he said he’d move forward with closing schools for Lunar New Year and for Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, Muslim holy days.

But that is nothing compared to what happened at one high school in Colorado. As students recited the Pledge of Allegiance, the words “under God” were replaced with “under Allah”Really 01

The principal at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, is facing a hailstorm of criticism from some very angry parents and residents.

The school recites the Pledge of Allegiance weekly, on Mondays. Last Monday, a member of their “Cultural Arms Club” led the student body in an Arabic version of the pledge, replacing the words “under God” with “under Allah.”

Principal Tom Lopez denies any attempt to push an Islamic agenda, saying, “These students love this country. They were not being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English.”

In the U.S., people are bending over backwards to make the Muslim minority feel more comfortable.

But in Muslim countries, Christians are being beaten to death, beheaded and crucified and very few people in the western world even want to talk about it.

Has our society become so “politically correct” that we cannot even denounce great evil when it is happening right in front of our eyes?

Wake up America

 

 

 

Martyrdom of Christians Doubles in 2013


http://eaglerising.com/4030/martyrdom-christians-doubles-2013/#Zdxgl0BTvtzOIrjM.99

By / 9 January 2014

I hate our foreign policy. I try not to get too agitated about it on the pages of Eagle Rising because I know there is a lot of disagreement within our “family’s” foreign policy beliefs. But having to report that 2013 was a horrible year worldwide for our Christian brothers and sisters has me angry.

Our President pours millions, no billions, of dollars into fascist Islamist regime nations like Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen… all the while, they are subjugating and persecuting our brothers and sisters.

In 2013 we documented that at least Two Thousand One Hundred and Twenty Three Christians were killed for their faith. 2,123 of our brothers and sisters martyred for believing as we do. And this number is low, because these are only the martyrdoms that we can confirm.

“This is a very minimal count based on what has been reported in the media and we can confirm,” said Frans Veerman, head of research for Open Doors. Estimates by other Christian groups put the annual figure as high as 8,000.

What has our government done about it?

Nothing.

  • Nine of the 10 countries listed as dangerous for Christians are Muslim-majority states, many of them torn by conflicts with radical Islamists. Saudi Arabia is an exception but ranked sixth because of its total ban on practicing faiths other than Islam.
  • In the list of killings, Syria was followed by Nigeria with 612 cases last year after 791 in 2012. Pakistan was third with 88, up from 15 in 2012. Egypt ranked fourth with 83 deaths after 19 the previous year.
  • The report spoke of “horrific violence often directed at Christians” in the Central African Republic but said only nine deaths were confirmed last year because “most analysts still fail to recognize the religious dimension of the conflict.”
  • The report had no figures for killings in North Korea but said Christians there faced “the highest imaginable pressure” and some 50,000 to 70,000 lived in political prison camps.
  • Look at some of those names. Saudi Arabia, Paikistan, and Egypt. Three of our “allies” that depend on the millions of dollars we give them or the trade we complete with them. Each of them is in the top six of nations in the world that persecute Christians.
  • Persecuted11Do we demand that they set their Christians free from imprisonment? Do we demand that they cease persecution of their Christian minorities? Do we demand that they give free and fair treatment to their Christian citizens? Do we even ask for any of these things? No. We make speeches where we attempt to shame them into fairness, but they know that we will never back up our speeches with actions and so their Christian minorities continue to suffer.
  • If we but threatened to pull funding or political support or international trade agreements, some of these villains would change their tunes.
  • In Iran, Pastor Saeed Abedini has been imprisoned for over a year for his crime of being a Christian. Recently his wife learned that the American government had been at work in Iran, but not in getting her American husband released.

“Initially, when I went to the U.S. government, they said we don’t have a direct relationship with Iran,” Naghmeh Abdeini said, moments after telling a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee her husband’s health is failing in prison. “Here we were sitting across table from Iran. It was our best leverage. It should have been a precondition.”

Needless to say, she felt betrayed.

In North Korea, an American Christian was taken prisoner for “crimes against the state”,” though the North Koreans will not enlighten us to those crimes.

U.S. officials have repeatedly called on North Korea to release Bae. In August, the two countries appeared close, but North Korea rescinded an invitation to a U.S. envoy. Ambassador Robert King, President Barack Obama’s special envoy for North Korean human rights issues, had been expected to fly to Pyongyang to try to win Bae’s freedom.

 Words. Nothing more.

I guess I just didn’t realize that the most powerful nation in the world was in the practice of allowing its citizens to be kidnapped and held imprisoned by their enemies.

We must demand that our government be more proactive in demanding the protection and liberties of Christians around the planet.

CIA Leak: “Incontrovertible Evidence” That 9/11 Was State Sponsored


http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/12/cia-leak-incontrovertible-evidence-911-state-sponsored/#FE1U0wuDJ98fAEHL.99

Posted By on Dec 16, 2013

towers-collapse

Like the Warren Commission report on the JFK assassination, the 9/11 Report  assembled by a Congressional investigation is unraveling and being revealed for  what it really is – nothing more than a cover story.

This is no longer a conspiracy theory… it’s conspiracy fact.

After the 9/11 attacks, the public was told al Qaeda acted alone, with no  state sponsors.

But the White House never let it see an entire section of Congress’ investigative report on 9/11 dealing with “specific sources of foreign  support” for the 19 hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals.

It was kept secret and remains so today.

A pair of lawmakers who recently read the redacted portion say they are “absolutely shocked” at the level of foreign state involvement in the  attacks.

Some information already has leaked from the classified section, which is  based on both CIA and FBI documents, and it points back to Saudi Arabia, a  presumed ally.

The Saudis deny any role in 9/11, but the CIA in one memo reportedly  found “incontrovertible evidence” that Saudi government officials — not just  wealthy Saudi hardliners, but high-level diplomats and intelligence officers  employed by the kingdom — helped the hijackers both financially and  logistically. The intelligence files cited in the report directly implicate the  Saudi embassy in Washington and consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks, making  9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but  an act of war.

The New York Post investigation reveals that Saudi agents,  officials and operatives in Virginia, Florida, California and D.C. provided  direct support by way funding or intelligence to those involved in bringing down  the towers.

Karl Denninger at the Market Ticker succinctly argues that this was, in fact, an  act of war:

It’s obvious given what happened, the logistical and funding  requirements and where the hijackers came from along with inexplicable  actions immediately following the attacks – unless our government explicitly let  certain people flee.

Yet we went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan while helping the Saudis — the very people who attacked us.

And Obama, to this day, kisses the Saudi  King.

Over three thousands Americans are dead – yet President Obama bows to  Saudi King Abdullah, whose government had direct ties to 9/11  hijackers:

It makes a very convincing case that the Saudi Government was involved in an act of war against the United States.  Not simply terrorism — remember, the Pentagon, a military target, was one of the  locations hit.  The other intended target for the plane that went down in PA was  the Capitol.

You awake yet America?

You damn well should be.

It’s about damn time that the mainstream media started talking about this — you’re only a decade late, *******s.  And no, people like myself who have been saying this all along are not nuts. 

We’re right.

In addition to this startling, yet unsurprising, revelation is even more  evidence that those within the Saudi government knew what was coming. Somebody  made a ton of money shorting airline stocks by positioning themselves for stock  prices to crash in the aftermath of 9/11 and according to Infowars, that may well have been the Chief of  Saudi Intelligence and other government officials. Moreover, after all flights  within the continental United States were grounded there was one – just one – airplane that was allowed to fly over U.S. soil to, you guessed it, Saudi  Arabia. On board that plane were – and this has been confirmed by an official Freedom of Information request – the members of  Osama Bin Laden’s extended family.

And these are but a few of the hundreds  of inconsistencies surrounding the September 11th, 2001 attacks.

As it turns out, the “conspiracy theorists” are the ones who accurately  detailed the series of events and those involved in the attacks. The “official  story” itself, it seems, is the “conspiracy theory.”

They’ve spent hundreds of billions of dollars on securing the United States  and preventing another act of terror on U.S. soil. They’ve turned their massive surveillance infrastructure inwards on the American  people under the pretext of preserving our safety. They’ve identified hundreds  of thousands of Americans and included them on watch lists that restrict their travel or  flag them as potential threats to national security.

Yet the real threat, the one that has been validated by scores of reports and  investigations, is being redacted and ignored by our government.

We know that there is more to 9/11 than the official story.

It doesn’t just involve the Saudis. America’s air defense, for example, were  seemingly disarmed minutes before the attack occurred. Moreover,  intelligence agents from Israel were reportedly spotted in New York on the day of, arrested by NYPD, and  then released under suspicious circumstances.

All of this is highly suspect, especially that a mainstream news source like  the New York Post would start releasing these details to the general  public. As with 9/11, most people couldn’t make sense of it or why. A decade on  we have a better perspective because we’ve seen the implementation of  initiatives all across America as a result of what happened that day.

Call it a conspiracy, call it whatever you like, but look around.

If they lied – yes, lied – about the assassination of a President of the  United States, or about Benghazi, or Fast and Furious, or the benefits of new  health care laws, then what else are they hiding from us?

How much do you trust your government?

How much do you trust the official narrative peddled by the  establishment?

How much do you trust that the powers that be have our best interests at  heart?

UPDATE

9/11:  Congressmen “Absolutely Shocked” of Foreign State  Involvement Behind Attacks

Posted By on Dec 18, 2013

9-11

If al Qaeda had support from foreign governments during 9/11, should the  public know about it? Many Americans are demanding it, especially those who lost  loved ones. Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) said  they were “absolutely shocked” at the level of foreign  state involvement in the attacks after reading the classified section of the  9/11 report.

Rep. Jones and Rep Lynch introduced H. Res. 428 this month that asks  President Obama to declassify the entire 2002 report, “Joint Inquiry into  Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of  September 11, 2001.”

Piers Morgan from CNN asked Rep. Lynch about his resolution in the video below.

The  New York Post published an article this week stating that some  information from this report already has leaked from the classified section,  which is based on both CIA and FBI documents, and points back to Saudi Arabia, a  presumed ally.

Paul Sperry states, “The Saudis deny any role in 9/11, but the CIA in one  memo reportedly found “incontrovertible evidence” that Saudi government  officials — not just wealthy Saudi hardliners, but high-level diplomats and  intelligence officers employed by the kingdom — helped the hijackers both  financially and logistically. The intelligence files cited in the report  directly implicate the Saudi embassy in Washington and consulate in Los Angeles  in the attacks, making 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war.”

Currently the resolution to declassify the 28 pages of the report was  referred to the House Committee on Intelligence on Dec. 2nd, but will it gain  support from other members in the House?

I asked Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC): “Will you support H. Res. 428 that  declassifies the 28 pages in the 9/11 report?”

“There are a lot of classified documents in our government regarding war and  those things should remain classified” said Duncan.

Many Americans, however, want to know what the government knows regarding  9/11. One mother on Facebook writes, “I’ve been fighting for 12 years to get  these pages and both Congressman have told us they were “just shocked” to see  what was in those pages. I want to see those pages. My son was murdered and I  want to know what happened and what the government knows.”

Joan, one of the members of the 9/11 families told me, “We need these 28  pages to help us pass Justice Against Sponsors of  Terrorism Act (S. 1535), which was introduced in the  Senate on Sep 19, 2013. We believe these 28 pages will say what we have been  saying all along.”

“9/11 families are not going away no matter what Congress thinks or what  people think. My son’s death certificate says homicide on it, they all do. This  was definitely funded. These hijackers were sponsored,” said Joan.

“My son was a fireman who died in the towers. He was only 32 years old and my  only son. He left behind a 2 year old daughter and a 21 day old son. And I miss  him every day. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss him. Not an hour goes by that  I don’t think about him.”

Rep. Jones states, “Twelve years after the United States  suffered a horrendous attack on our own soil, the families of the victims  deserve to know all the facts concerning that tragic day,” said Congressman  Jones.  “Furthermore, the information contained in the redacted pages is  critical to our foreign policy moving forward and should thus be available to  the American public.  If the 9/11 hijackers had outside help – particularly  from one or more foreign governments – the press and the public have a right to  know what our government has or has not done to bring justice to all of the  perpetrators.”

Editor’s Note:  It seems that many of the congressmen are  just coming around to what many of us have said all along about 9/11.  While  it’s been over a decade in waiting, welcome aboard.

Christian cleansing continues in Mideast with murder/kidnapping in Syria


http://allenbwest.com/2013/12/christian-cleansing-continues-mideast-murderkidnapping-syria/#xOmU2hvj0FxLHPzW.99

Written by Allen  West on December 8, 2013
syria
 This is a time when those of us who share the Judeo-Christian faith sing  songs of peace and goodwill towards all men. This is also the time — as it seems  it is all the time — when those who follow the theocratic-political totalitarian  intolerant belief of Islam — which means submission — kill those who will not  submit to their form of proselytization, forced conversion.

According to a reports from World  Net Daily,

A Syrian city overrun by the Muslim Brotherhood was the scene of the  execution of three Christian men who refused to convert to Islam. The Catholic  young men were killed by rebels fighting the regime of Bashar al-Assad after  they had taken control of the village of Maaloula.Todd Daniels, a spokesman for  the American human rights group International Christian Concern, said based on  the statement from the Melkite patriarch, these men were martyred because they  refused to recant their faith,” Also, 12 nuns were kidnapped at about the same  time. They were identified as Mother Superior Pelagia Sayyaf and 11 nuns with  her.

International Christian Union President Joseph Hakim said the rebels forced  their way into a monastery to take the nuns hostage. Dutch human rights activist  Martin Janssen said that when fighting broke out in Maaloula, the nuns remained  behind to care for the children in the monastery. The jihadists forced their way  into the monastery and demanded that the 12 nuns had to go if they wanted to  save the lives of the children with them,” Janssen said, and blames the Muslim  Brotherhood.

“The Free Syrian Army is powerless,” he said, noting the Muslim Brotherhood  is starting to take a leading role. “They’ve used the honest Syrian people who  really want democratic rule and used them to open the door,” Hakim said. “The  entire terrorist movement is financed by the Saudi government and the Turkish  government,” Hakim said. “Let’s be honest, how can the rebels have that much  money?”

The violence comes amid U.S. support for the Islamic rebels in Syria, an ill- advised endeavor. Many have alerted the Obama administration that these “rebels” are tied to al-Qaida and have declared their intent to establish Islamic law the  country. It also rekindles the questions about a potential gun-running scheme  out of Libya from the Islamist rebels President Obama supported through Turkey  to the Islamist rebels in Syria.

We know the Obama administration wholeheartedly supported the Muslim  Brotherhood government of Mohammed Morsi in Egypt. Thank God the Egyptian people  and military rose up in defiance to Obama’s Islamist leanings.

However, this episode reminds us again there is no aspect of “coexistence” with Islam and that “when tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to  cultural suicide” along with ritual executions  and beheadings.

Now the chuckleheads at the Council for America Islamic Relations (CAIR) will  see this post and declare that Islam does not believe in any compulsion of  religion. What they will not explain to you is the concept of “nakeesh,” Arabic  for abrogation. That means latter verses in the Koran supersede previous verses.  So later in the Koran and Hadiths, when Mohammed sent a letter to Heraclius,  Emperor of the Byzantine Empire, offering him conversion, subjugation (jizya  tax), or death, that became the modus operandi for all subsequent Islamic  conquests.

We can pretend to live in some type of politically correct fairy tale land or  face the truth. These barbarians follow the standard of someone who is nothing  more than a murderous warlord, psychopath/sociopath, liar, and by modern day  standards, a pedophile. Saying this, the truth, does not make me an Islamophobe,  it makes me someone as Sun Tzu would say, “knows my enemy.”

There is a cleansing occurring of Christians in the Middle East, a region  where Christians have resided for some 2000 years, certainly before Islam was  ever conceived. God welcome the souls of those who refused to surrender their  faith. God protect those nuns. And God help these murderous jihadists because  the day of reckoning is coming — and your progressive socialist apologist  allies, to include President Obama, will not save you from warrior Christians  such as myself.

Reports: Saudi Prince Bandar Using US to Topple Syria’s Assad – Freedom Outpost


http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/08/reports-saudi-prince-bandar-bin-sultan-using-us-to-topple-assad/

 By Joshua Cook

According to reports in Mint Press News made by veteran Associated Press reporter Dale Gavlak, the chemical attack came from Syrian rebel arms by Prince Bandar, not the Assad regime.

Gavlak writes, “The U.S., Britain, and France as well as the Arab League have accused the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for carrying out the chemical weapons attack, which mainly targeted civilians. U.S. warships are stationed in the Mediterranean Sea to launch military strikes against Syria in punishment for carrying out a massive chemical weapons attack. The U.S. and others are not interested in examining any contrary evidence, with U.S Secretary of State John Kerry saying Monday that Assad’s guilt was ‘a judgment …already clear to the world.'”

Gavlak’s report states that the U.S. is not interested in differing opinion, despite evidence that points to Saudi Arabian Prince Bandar.

The report continues,

“However, from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack.”

“They didn’t tell us what these arms were or how to use them,” complained a female fighter named ‘K.’ “We didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons.”

“When Saudi Prince Bandar gives such weapons to people, he must give them to those who know how to handle and use them,” she warned.

She, like other Syrians, do not want to use their full names for fear of retribution.

Prince Bandar is said to have close ties to Washington, serving as Saudi Arabia’s ambassador. According to a report in the UK’s The Independent, Prince Bandar has re-emerged as a pivotal figure in the struggle by America and its allies to tilt the battlefield balance against the regime in Syria.

According to the Independent, it was Prince Bandar’s intelligence agency that first alerted Western allies to the alleged use of sarin gas by the Syrian regime in February.

According to the report,

“It is a long-term Saudi goal that in the past several days has been subsumed by the more immediate crisis over the purported use of chemical weapons by Damascus …That message is being delivered to President Barack Obama by the current Saudi Ambassador in Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, who is a Bandar protégé.”

This situation continues to become eerily similar to President George W. Bush’s intel on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

In fact, according to Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward, on January 11, 2002, Rumsfeld, Cheney and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Richard Myers met in Cheney’s office with Prince Bandar, the Saudi ambassador to the United States to discuss plans to attack Iraq.

The Washington Post reported that Bandar, who helped arrange Saudi cooperation with the U.S. military, feared Saudi interests would be damaged if Bush did not follow through on attacking Hussein, thus Bandar became another advocate for war.

“Months of applying pressure on the White House and Congress over Syria have slowly born fruit. The CIA is believed to have been working with Prince Bandar directly since last year in training rebels at base in Jordan close to the Syrian border,” the Independent reported.

The Saudis are “indispensable partners on Syria” and have considerable influence on American thinking, a senior US official told The Wall Street Journal yesterday. He added: “No one wants to do anything alone.”

And right now, Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to justify intervening in Syria on the basis of crimes against humanity.

But it makes you wonder: Whose crimes?

Is Saudi Arabia using an attack on Syria by the west as a way to advance its own agenda?

Saudis Warn the West: We Won’t Forget Your Stance on Egypt


By Patrick Goodenough

(CNSNews.com) – In a blunt warning to countries critical of the Egyptian military crackdown and considering suspending aid, longstanding U.S. ally Saudi Arabia suggested that the decisions they make now will have long-term consequences for their relationships in the Arab and Muslim world.

Saudi Arabia has led the way in supporting the Egyptian military’s actions, first in removing the Muslim Brotherhood administration early last month and in its subsequent steps against supporters of the ousted Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi.

Its warning came as policymakers in the U.S. and Europe mull the question of continuing financial assistance to Cairo following the violence in recent days, in which more than 1,000 people have been killed in clashes between security forces and Morsi supporters.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal issued a lengthy statement Monday defending the military’s actions and informing countries that have threatened to withdraw aid that Arab and Muslim countries “will not hesitate to help Egypt.”

“As you [Western countries] enjoy security, calm and stability, do not consider them as too much for us.”

Faisal drew comparisons to the situation in Syria, implying that some of the same governments that are condemning the military in Egypt are not taking firmer action in support of those trying to topple the Assad regime. Saudi Arabia is a key supporter of the anti-Assad opposition.

“Regrettably, we see that the international position towards the current events in Egypt is contrary to their attitudes towards the events in Syria,” he said. “Where is the concern for human rights and the sanctity of blood and carnage that takes place every day in Syria which led to the killing of more than one hundred thousand Syrians and destruction of whole Syria without hearing whispering from the international community […?]”

In the statement, released through the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Faisal said such attitudes “will not be forgotten by Arab and Muslim world.”

Those who condemn the Egyptian crackdown and believe “flimsy propaganda” will not be viewed as acting in good faith or out of ignorance, “but we will consider them as hostile attitudes against the interests of the Arab and Islamic nations and their stability.”

“Let those states that are taking negative stances know that the blaze and destruction will not be confined to Egypt, but will affect all those who supported trouble,” he said.

Asked at a press briefing Monday whether the Obama administration thought Faisal was referring to the United States in his comments, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said she could not “speculate on that.”

“Obviously, every country makes their own decision about whether they’re going to continue to provide aid, what aid they will provide, and we’ve certainly seen that,” she said.

“We’ll make our own decisions here, based on our own national security interests, our own concerns about regional stability. And that review is ongoing.”

‘Fanning the fire of sedition’

Riyadh’s outspoken support for the military’s actions reflect its deep-rooted antipathy for the Muslim Brotherhood, a sentiment shared with the other Gulf states – with the notable exception of Qatar.

The unelected Gulf regimes – which apart from Bahrain largely avoided “Arab spring”-type protests over the past two years – watched in dismay as the post-Mubarak transition in Egypt brought the Muslim Brotherhood to power. Late last year the United Arab Emirates (UAE) arrested 11 Egyptians accused of setting up a Muslim Brotherhood cell with the aim of toppling its government.

Saudi King Abdullah was the first to congratulate the Egyptian military for ousting Morsi on July 3, saying it had “managed to save Egypt at this critical moment from a dark tunnel.”

Between them, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE quickly pledged a total of $12 billion to the military-installed interim government – eclipsing the $1.5 billion in military and other assistance Egypt receives from the U.S. each year.

After last week’s bloodshed in Cairo, Abdullah issued a strong-worded statement of support for the interim government and military’s fight “against terrorism.”

“The people and government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia stood and still stand today with our brothers in Egypt against terrorism, extremism and sedition, and against whoever is trying to interfere in Egypt’s internal affairs and in its determination, power and legitimate right to deter every spoiler or whoever misleads the people of Egypt,” the king said.

“Let it be known to those who interfered in Egypt’s internal affairs that they themselves are fanning the fire of sedition and are promoting the terrorism which they call for fighting.”

SPA reports that Egyptian army chief Gen. Abdul Fattah El-Sisi phone Faisal on Monday thanked Saudi Arabia for its support, saying it would not be forgotten.

Other Gulf states also voiced support for the authorities in Cairo during the recent turmoil – again with the exception of Qatar, which since July 3 has repeatedly voiced support for the ousted president and condemned the armed forces’ raid last Wednesday on the pro-Morsi protest camps that resulted in so many deaths.

Long supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood (and its branches in Syria and Gaza, i.e. Hamas), the small, petroleum-rich state pledged billions of dollars in aid to Egypt following the overthrow of former President Hosni Mubarak and as the Muslim Brotherhood strengthened its grip on the country.

Scrambling to adjust to the new reality, Qatar’s Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Attiya said on Sunday his country had never given aid to the Muslim Brotherhood per se, but to Egypt as a whole.

“Qatar has never given aid to an Egyptian group or an Egyptian political party,” he told journalists in Paris after talks with his French counterpart. “The aid has always been provided to Egypt.”

Writing in the influential pan-Arabic newspaper Asharq al-Awsat this week, Al-Arabiya television general manager Abdulrahman al-Rashed said Gulf state like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE were aware of the risks of chaos in Egypt.

“These Gulf countries think that pushing Egypt towards chaos means a threat of turning the country into another collapsed state, like Libya and Syria. Egypt’s failure means a threat to the entire Middle East and the region will not stabilize for many decades,” he wrote.

As for Qatar, al-Rashed said its stance was hard to fathom, but predicted that it would eventually be forced to deal with the new regime in Cairo, “because Egypt is an influential country that no Arab state can ignore or build an enmity with.”
