ISIS Tweets Home Address of Pamela Geller

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

A tweet from a man in Britain believed to be a senior member of the Islamic State (ISIS) posted the home address of anti-radical Islam activist Pamela Geller, who is Jewish. The Jewish Press.com is not re-posting the information even though we have no ISIS readers, as far as we know.

She was targeted for beheading in a plot that was smashed two weeks ago when Boston policemen arrested two men who had planned to decapitate her but then decided to make policemen their first victims because they were “easier targets.”

The Twitter account “#GoForth,” from which the tweet was sent and which now has been suspended revealed Geller’s address and apartment number in New York City.

Geller rose to be U.S. Public Enemy No. 1 for the ISIS after she staged a contest in Texas in May for drawings of the Prophet Mohammed.

She may soon have company in the form of New Hampshire resident and ex-marine Jerry DeLemus, who plans another “draw Mohammed” event in August.

He said last week:

I’m not worried about taking a risk. It’s more important to defend our way of life in this country, our constitutional rights, for everybody.

DeLemus told Maine’s WMTW:

I guarantee if there weren’t Muslims actually in this country actively trying to kill people for drawing pictures of Mohammad, I’d never have an art contest to draw Muhammad.

I’m not forcing anyone to come. That’s Sharia law. I’m sure they’ll know with the news media coverage there’s a risk involved.

He declared that he won’t allow offensive drawing and added:

It’s a political statement that we’re America, we’re free. And we can do things that offend one another.

As a Christian, they do all kinds of ugly things about my faith. But I’ve never wanted to kill someone about it. So I’m hoping it comes out peaceful. But I just want the dialog to be had.

Plenty of security will be on hand, and Geller now walks around with personal bodyguards because of death threats.

One of the suspects in the plot to behead Geller was killed when he pulled out an 8-inch military knife as he approached policemen who were preparing to arrest him for questioning.

Two others were charged on Friday for the plot. David Wright was arrested shortly after his co-conspirator Usaamah Rahim was killed, and the third suspect is Nicholas Rovinski, who was arrested on Thursday. He also goes under the name Amriki aka Nuh al Andalusi.

“Beginning at a date unknown but no later than May 2015, Wright, Rovinski and Rahim conspired to commit attacks and kill persons inside the United States, which they believed would support ISIL’s objectives,” according to a Dept. of Justice statement.

Rovinski and Wright face a maximum prison sentence of 15 years for conspiring to support the Islamic State.

Boston ISIS Terrorist Intended to Behead Pamela Geller

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

The radical Islamic State (ISIS)-inspired terrorist who was gunned down by Boston police Wednesday originally intended to behead activist Pamela Geller but later changed his plans and decided to chop off policemen’s heads, CNN reported.

Police killed 26-year-old Usaamah Rahim when he refused to drop his 8-inch military knife, purchased through Amazon, when officers approached to arrest him for the murder plot.

Geller, who is Jewish, is in the forefront of the campaign against radical Islam and grabbed headlines last month when her American Freedom Defense staged a contest for drawing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Texas. The event earned her plenty of harsh criticism for rabble rousing, and she walks around with security guards.

She told CNN Wednesday:

They targeted me for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by their law voluntarily. This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves?

Rahim and his alleged conspirator David Wright are said to have dropped their plans to make Geller their first target and decided approximately two hours before the clash with police:

 …Going to … go after them, those boys in blue. Cause … it’s the easiest target.

Wright was arraigned in a Boston court Wednesday and was charged with obstructing a federal investigation by destroying Rahim’s Smartphone that contained evidence of their plot.

Court documents also revealed that Rahim allegedly told Wright after purchasing knives:

I just got myself a nice little tool. You know it’s good for carving wood and … carving sculptures.”

A group of four or five Boston police officers approached Rahim to arrest him when he moved towards them with his drawn military knife and was shot and killed.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said that Rahim has been under surveillance and that “he was someone we were watching for quite some time.”

A video shows the shooting, but Rahim’s brother Ibrahim has a different version, which he posted on social media:

Boston Imam Abdullah Faaruuq also doubts that the video shows the whole picture. He said:

We can’t say what happened. We weren’t there. We do see a very vague video that is not clear as to what transpired. It wasn’t at a bus stop. He wasn’t shot in the back and there is not detail enough on the video to tell us exactly what happened.

The Council of American-Islamic Relations’ spokesman also joined the doubters and stated:

We have a number of questions. Why exactly was he being followed? What was the probable cause for this particular stop? Were there any video cameras or body cameras of the incident? How do you reconcile the two versions of the story, the family version being that he was on his normal commute to work at a bus stop?

The denial of the police account and the accusations that police simply gunned down Rahim in cold blood underlines the growing problem in the United States of radical Islam and is a carbon copy of the same mindset of the Islamic world in the Middle East, including the Palestinian Authority and some Israel Arab leaders.

No matter what, the guilty party is the victim.

That is why Rahim, the “victim,” wanted to behead Geller.

She has been active in the campaign against radical Islam since the 9/11 attacks and began her Atlas Shrugs blog, which re-published the cartoons from 2007 of Mohammed, showing him with a bomb in his turban and which set off Muslim riots throughout the Muslim world.

Critics have accused of Islamphobia, and she was banned from speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in 2019 after four years of having addressed the event. She said she was kept from speaking because she had accused officials of the organization of being “members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret Islamist agents.”

Denmark Pays 32 ISIS Terrorists Unemployment Benefits

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

The Danish government has paid $557,000 in unemployment benefits to Islamic State (ISIS) jihad fighters, who apparently are considered on the jobless list while fighting for the radical Islamic organization that likes to behead their enemies in Syria, which includes just about everyone except themselves.

“STAR [Danish Labour Agency] has thus far received information pertaining to 32 people who, according to PET’s [Security and Intelligence Service] information, have gone abroad in relation to the conflict in Syria while at the same time receiving social benefits,” according to an Employment Ministry document obtained by Danish Radio24syv

A similar report last November revealed that at least 28 jihadists were receiving unemployment benefits from the Danish government but that 15 of them were asked to pay back the money.

Now, try to imagine that a good jihadist will painfully search his conscience, lay down his assault rifle, and rush to the nearest bank – if there are any more in Syria – and send a money order to the Danish government.

Justice Minister Mette Frederiksen, told about the payments last year, told the tabloid BT:

 It is incredibly important that we are not naive.

Apparently they are not totally naïve because at least 115 Danish citizens have left to fight with the ISIS. So hats off to Copenhagen for not paying unemployment benefits to approximately 68 terrorists. Perhaps the Danish government has discovered that the 68 jihadists are getting paid by the ISIS and that the 32 others are not.

Or perhaps their families in Denmark are receiving their loved ones’ monthly ISIS salary checks, which would mean the terrorists are officially employed.

Peter Skaarup, legal draftsman of the Danish People’s Party, said several months ago:

I think that many Danes feel to laugh over that one pays cash benefits to persons not resident in Denmark. These are people who go there and fight in a holy war against Danish forces while they receive Danish cash – it can hardly be worse.

But it is worse, because nothing has changed since November except that now there are more jihadists getting paid.

Sending out checks to the “unemployed” terrorists obviously encourages more Danes to play both sides of the street.

On the other hand, it is a nifty way to thin out the radical Islamic population in Denmark, assuming that most of the jihadists don’t return home alive.

If there is an outcry from other quarters such as the White House, that Denmark is in effect aiding and abetting terror, perhaps President Barack Obama will turn his attention to similar phenomena elsewhere, namely Ramallah.

The Palestinian Authority pays a healthy sum of money every month to terrorists who are serving time in Israeli jails.

 

US Condemns ISIS ‘Vicious’ Beheading of Kenjo Goto

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

United States Secretary of State John Kerry promptly issued a formal statement Saturday night condemning the “vicious murder” of Japanese journalist Kenjo Goto by an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) executioner after a video showing the ritual beheading was uploaded to the internet.

The American reaction to the journalist’s death was much swifter than the response last week to the killing of two Israeli soldiers after a Hezbollah missile attack on a convoy traveling in northern Israel. Seven others were wounded, including two critically, in the attack which also destroyed a private home in the Druze village of Ghajar. A Spanish UNIFIL soldier also was killed in the exchange of artillery fire in the battle between Israeli and Hezbollah forces that followed. It took hours for the United States to issue a statement.

“The United States condemns ISIL’s vicious murder of Japanese journalist Kenji Goto. We extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to his wife, his family, and his loved ones, as well as to the people of Japan,” Kerry said in his statement Saturday evening Eastern time, shortly after the murder video appeared.

“The barbaric killing of Kenji Goto, and of Haruna Yukawa before him, shows again ISIL’s brutality and extremist agenda. The United States knows this pain on a personal level born of our own experience. We share the sorrow and continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our ally Japan in confronting terrorism.

“We commend Japan’s support for those in the region who have been displaced by ISIL, the Syrian regime, and other militant groups. Japan’s generous assistance to vulnerable communities fully reflects its commitment to international peace and development.”

The ritual beheading – much like those that preceded the one seen in the video uploaded Saturday to the internet – came 10 days after a demand for ransom by the group was not met. ISIS told Japan the price for Goto’s freedom and that of his friend, who was executed the week prior, was $200 million and the release of a female Al Qaeda failed suicide bomber currently waiting for execution on death row.

The group had also tied the release of a Jordanian pilot to the fate of the Al Qaeda terrorist as well; negotiations over the prisoner swap are still ongoing between ISIS and the Jordanian government, which has said it cannot release the woman without proof the pilot is still alive.

ISIS Beheads Kenji Goto

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has released a video purporting to show the beheading of Japanese freelance journalist Kenji Goto on Saturday.

Goto, 47, was a freelance TV journalist. He went to Syria to try and free his friend Haruna Yukawa, who was beheaded by ISIS last week when Japan did not pay the terrorists $200 million in ransom.

Speaking to the camera, the British-accented terrorist informally dubbed by the media as Jihadi John, says in the video:

“To the Japanese government: You like your foolish allies in the Satanic coalition have yet to understand that we by Allah’s grace are an Islamic Caliphate with authority and power, an entire army thirsty for your blood. [Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo] Abe, because of your reckless decision to take part in an unwinnable war, this knife will not only slaughter Kenji but will also carry on and cause carnage wherever your people are found. So let the nightmare for Japan begin.”

Goto is seen kneeling in an orange prisoners’ jumpsuit in front of the black-clad executioner, before footage of his decapitated body is shown.

Goto, captured on October 25, 2014, is survived by his wife Rinko Goto and his two baby daughters, ages 2 and five months old.

The video hasn’t been officially authenticated by Japan yet, but it resembles previous beheading videos and members of the intelligence community say there is no reason to doubt it.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe condemned the murder, vowing to work with other nations to bring those responsible to justice. “I feel strong indignation at this inhumane and contemptible act of terrorism,” Abe said in brief remarks to journalists. “I will never forgive these terrorists. Japan will work with the international community to bring those responsible for this crime to justice,” he said, repeating his prior statement that Japan would not give in to terrorism.

The cabinet was to convene in Japan in an emergency meeting following the publication of the video Saturday night on the internet. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters, “I cannot help feeling strong indignation that an inhuman and despicable act of terrorism like this has been committed again. We resolutely condemn this.”

U.S. officials were also trying to confirm the authenticity of the video along with officials in Japan.

Bernadette Meehan, a spokesperson for the U.S. National Security Council, told reporters, “We have seen the video purporting to show that Japanese citizen Kenji Goto has been murdered by the terrorist group ISIL. The United States strongly condemns ISIL’s actions and we call for the immediate release of all the remaining hostages. We stand in solidarity with our ally Japan.”

There was no mention in the 60-second video about the fate of Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kasasbeh, who was being held with Goto. Jordan has said it cannot release a female Al Qaeda terrorist suicide bomber in a prisoner swap as ISIS has demanded, without proof that Kasasbeh is still alive.

Japan, Jordan Unite on ISIS Hostage Crisis

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

Two hostages – one each from Japan and Jordan – may die soon if their respective governments don’t pay a handsome sum to ransom them.

A new video uploaded by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist organization appearing to show Japanese freelance journalist Kenji Goto and a Jordanian pilot held with him, proclaims the two will die in 24 hours unless Jordan frees terrorist Sajida al-Rishawi from death row.

Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh was captured after his jet crashed in northeastern Syria this past December (2014) during a bombing mission against ISIS.

Goto’s friend, 42 year old Haruna Yukawa was beheaded last week after a previous 72-hour ransom deadline expired. ISIS had demanded $200 million in exchange for that hostage.

In the new clip, the man speaking states, “She (Rishawi) has been a prisoner for a decade and I’ve only been a prisoner for a few months. Her for me, a straight exchange.”

Rishawi, an Iraqi, has been on death row for years in Jordan for her involvement in a suicide bombing that took the lives of 60 people in 2005.

Japanese government spokesperson Yoshihide Suga was quoted by The Guardian as saying Tuesday in response, “In this extremely tough situation, we are continuing as before to request the cooperation of the Jordanian government to work toward the immediate release of Mr. Goto.”

The Kyodo news agency quoted unnamed officials who said Jordan has been in contact with ISIS through a third party about negotiating a deal for the release of the two hostages. Jordan’s King Abdullah II, however, was quoted as telling a Jordanian newspaper that the case of the Jordanian pilot “tops the country’s priorities.”

The United States meanwhile is adamantly opposed to any prisoner swaps with ISIS, let alone the payment of ransoms to that or any other terror organization.
