Jail for Returning Jihadists in Australia

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced Monday that any Australian who left to fight with jihad groups in the Middle East may as well stay there.

“My unambiguous message to all Australians who fight with terrorist groups is that you will be arrested, prosecuted and jailed for a very long time,” Abbott told the Australian parliament in a statement on national security.

Numerous Australian immigrants have left the island nation to fight with Islamist radicals abroad; some have then returned to start trouble at home.

Australia has recently announced tough counter terror measures to target the home-grown terrorists, as did Canada as well, which is revoking citizenship from anyone who travels overseas to fight alongside ISIS or any other terrorist group.

ISIS Shows Off 13-Year-Old Belgian Boy Jihadist

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

ISIS has posted a picture of a 13-year-old Belgian Muslim boy armed with an assault rifle and ready for action in Syria.

The young jihadist was identified as Younes Abaaoud. Keeping it all in the family, he traveled to Syria with his big brother, 27-year-old Abdelhamid, whom his father said was brainwashed to become a real man and become member of the ISIS, which has become the new international symbol of fear.

Brainwashed? Maybe, but the father reportedly once was jailed in Australia for plotting terror. He set a sterling example for his child but apparently was not so happy that the 13-year-old opted for orthodox jihadism.

It is not clear if Younes is actually fighting with the ISIS or simply serving as a model for other 13-year-old radical Muslims.

Belgium leads Europe in the number of citizens per capita who have joined ISIS, which Brussels estimates has snared approximately 200 Belgians among 2,000 Europeans.

The United States “boasts” around 100 ISIS fighters.

ISIS has released a 55-minute video featuring an English-speaking terrorist with an accent that indicates he might be from the United States.

“Clearly ISIS had a calculated step to be able to put this guy on camera,” Frank Cilluffo, a security analyst at George Washington University, told CNN. “Why? Because he seems American. The message is aimed at a Western audience.”

A linguistics professor told The Intercept that the man probably is not a native English speaker but his accent indicates he may be from Minnesota, North Dakota, or even Canada.

Scottish Woman Heads ISIS ‘Sisterhood for Martyrdom’

Monday, September 8th, 2014

A 20-year-old Muslim woman from Glasgow, Scotland left her parents weeping after she called from the Turkish-Syria border to tell them she is serving the ISIS machine of evil and “wants to become a martyr.”

Aqsa Mahmood, a radiography student, left home in November and has posted messages on Twitter urging western women to carry out terrorist attacks and “follow the examples of your brothers from Woolwich, Texas and Boston.”

At least 20 British women have joined ISIS thanks to social media, Melanie Smith, of King’s College International Center for the Study of Radicalization told the Guardian. Other reports put the number of British women in the ISIS at 60.

She estimates that approximately 200 western women have joined ISIS, which has popularized beheading and has taken brutal gang rapes to a new extreme.

The 20-year-old Mahmood presumably is not in charge of lining up rape victims for ISIS murderers, who do very well by themselves.

Her job as president of the jihadist version of the Sisterhood is to supervise the women’s police force in Rakka, where a British-accented ISIS killer beheaded journalists James Foley and Steve Sotloff. The force of approximately 20 women keep a watch and punish women if they do not behave as good Muslims, fully covered and accompanied by a man when in public lest they fall into the clutches of an intelligent human being.

As for the “Brotherhood” side of the ISIS, their code of good behavior is a bit different. One woman captive of ISIS told an Italian reporter of brutal sexual harassment. She said a 17-year-old was one of 40 women, some of them still in captivity and as young as 13, who were sex slaves for the ISIS.

One of the most important functions of the women is to bear as many children as possible to ensure the growth of the ISIS and help it fulfill its devotion to Allah and destroy Western civilization.

Asqa Mahmood’s parents told CNN they pleaded with her daughter to come home “in the name of Allah.” Of course, she has decided that she is acting in the name of Allah and has married one of the ISIS terrorists, so there really is not much to talk about. They said that their daughter was “brainwashed.”

Two of the British girls have been identified as 16-year-old twin sisters, Zahra and Salma Halane, who followed their brother’s move to Syria, left their Manchester home in June and are believed to have married ISIS members.

Not all of the British women are Muslims from birth. The London Independent identified one of them as Sally Jones, a convert from Kent, who apparently turned her life around after meeting on social media a computer hacker who was attracted to jihad.

Another woman tweeted, “I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!”

Beware! Beheading Becoming New Fashion for Jihad Terrorists

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Beware! Beheading is rapidly becoming the new fashion method for terrorists. The Islamic State’s methods are spreading very quickly to other geographic arenas in the Middle East and Africa.

In the past couple of weeks we have heard about cases of beheading in numerous other countries. There have been such cases reported in Lebanon, in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, and in Nigeria as well, the latter carried out by the Boko Haram group who kidnapped hundreds of Christian girls for slaves several months ago.

Unfortunately the media – especially the social media – has no doubt played a major role in exporting the idea of beheading from Iraq and Syria to other parts of the world.

Reports of the incidents zip around the world with each new beheading, although such barbaric methods are not new. Journalist James Foley was not the first victim. And journalist Steve Sotloff, a Jewish Israeli-American dual citizen who hid both his Judaism and his Israeli citizenship, just joined his beheaded colleague.

We have already seen what Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi did to Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. We saw what happened to British soldier Lee Rigby in the streets of London.

Now, I am afraid, beheading has become a fashion; an acceptable, legitimate, ‘regular’ method of jihad.

The Western silence is shocking. Everyone says it is “there” and not “here.” “Who cares about ‘them’?” “Let them kill each other.”

Where are the demonstrations against the beheading of the Yazidis? Where is the support for the Christians in Nigeria? Where are all the moderate Muslims? Why don’t we hear their condemnation of this ‘fashion’ of beheading?

The world is sleep-walking!!

Be warned: if the world continues to simply bat helplessly away in deafening silence, beheading will become a fashion in “our” place as well. If will cross continents and oceans, and no place will remain immune.

Wake up before it’s too late. I hope and pray I am wrong; but I fear that I am only too right.

Three Injured in Mortar Fire During Humanitarian Operation at Erez Crossing

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Three Israeli Arabs were injured this afternoon at the Erez Crossing checkpoint by a mortar shell fired from Gaza. As a result of the incident, which occurred during the transfer of Gazan patients for medical treatment in Israel, authorities have announced the closing the Erez Crossing checkpoint between Israel and the territory, citing heightened risk to life.

Shortly thereafter the IAF destroyed the launchers used in the attack.

The three injured were taxi drivers who were preparing to take a group of Gazans from the crossing to Israeli hospitals. Two of the wounded are still in serious condition. At least one of the patients was headed to Hadassah-Ein Karem hospital in Jerusalem, according to one of the injured drivers, who works for the hospital and is related to the victim.

The other two drivers were identified as residents of the Bedouin town of Rahat.

Meir Yitzhak was one of the Magen David Adom paramedics dispatched to the scene following the attack. Recounting the incident, Yitzhak told Tazpit News Agency that he was at home in Kibbutz Yad Mordecahai when he received the call.

“We rushed over to the area with an ambulance and identified three wounded, including two in serious condition with shrapnel wounds in the abdomen and another wounded in moderate condition with shrapnel wounds in the upper limbs,” he said.

“We evacuated the wounded to secure area close by. In the background, we continued to hear whistling and mortar hits,” Yitzhak added. Following initial treatment, the wounded were evacuated to Barzilai Hospital.

In response to the attack, the Israeli officials decided to close down the crossing for any use other than life-saving operations. The incident occurred several days after an announcement by Israeli authorities that a group of 17 injured Gazans would be taken by Israel to be flown to hospitals in Turkey. On August 19 an initial group of 19 were flown to Turkey, along with their relatives, at Israel’s expense.

Australian Rabbi: Love Muslims and Everything Will Be OK

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Christian and Jewish religious leaders in Australia have launched a “We’ll love Muslims 100 years” campaign to express love and support for the country’s Muslim population, the JTA reported.

“We have Muslims who are made to feel like terrorists in the past few years and they report the atmosphere is similar to post-9/11 and it is simply as a result of cultural incompetence,” explained Rabbi Zalman Kastel, of the Together for Humanity Foundation.

He and pastor Brad Chilcott, national director of Welcome to Australia, a non-profit that focuses on issues relating to immigration and asylum, are heading the campaign that is supposed to make Islamic jihadists love Christians and Jews.

The name of the campaign – loving Muslims for 100 years – is a riff on a recent headline, published in the Weekend Australian, that stated, “We’ll fight Muslims 100 years,” according to a report in The Guardian.

It is clear why they will love Muslims for only 100 years and not any longer because if “love” is the solution to Muslim terror, there won’t be any Christians and Jews left in the world in the year 2114.

The year is 2024 is more likely, but let’s not quibble about the extra zero added on to 10 years.

Any assumption that Rabi Kastel is another Reform “rabbi” smoking The New York Times is dead wrong.

Believe it or not, he is a strictly Orthodox rabbi born and raised in Brooklyn.

He and his non-Jewish pals plan three major love events in Australia to rally Australian Muslims around the banner of love.

The Together for Humanity Foundation has been around for 12 years, in which time its love has paralleled the spread of fanatical Islam to the point that many Muslim countries as well as almost the entire non-Muslim world, except Israel, is scared to death, literally.

The Humanity Foundation was launched less than year after 9/11 and 12 years before the Islamic State ISIS has declared war on the United States, although President Barack Obama dismisses the declaration while ISIS beheads one American journalist, prepares another one for death and claims it has cells in the United States ready to strike fear into the hearts of heathen Christians and Jews who do not accept Islam. It does not mean middle class Islam but the real stuff that also expresses love – love for hate and love for death.

The catalyst for the “We’ll Love Muslims for 100 Years’ campaign was a recent headline the Weekend Australian, “We’ll fight Islam 100 years.”

It is forbidden to express the words “fight” in the world of Woodstock, unless one is fighting for “love” of everything, including hate. Or as John Lennon sang, “Imagine.” That is far as Rabbi Kastel’s reality goes – imagination.

But he insists he is not living in Woodstock.

It would be interesting to know what Talmudic discussion he uses for his outlook. But so far he is using his foundation’s Muslim president, Christian chairman and an atheist patron to back him.

The good rabbi, may God grant him a speedy spiritual recovery, is bothered by the “harsh talk” against Muslims in mainstream and social media.

“I was concerned about shrill, harsh talk we see both in social and mainstream, even though there is a lot of good interfaith work going on in Australia every day,” he said, quoted by the London Guardian.

“As a result, we have Muslims who are made to feel like terrorists in the past few years and they report the atmosphere is similar to post-9/11 and it is simply as a result of cultural incompetence.

“We are all on the same team, if I may use that word, in terms of the result, and that is peace.”

Hamas = ISIS [video]

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

A fascinating exchange is going on in the Twitterverse.

Hamas’s online Jihadi supporters and groupies are desperately trying to differentiate between their support for Hamas and supporting ISIS. It appears that supporting ISIS, even among these radicals, is not yet 100% acceptable (but give it a year, and it will be), probably because of the beheading.

An example of someone tweeting the difference between Hamas and ISIS.

An example of someone tweeting the difference between Hamas and ISIS.

When confronted by pro-Israel Twitter activists comparing Hamas to ISIS, the affronted Hamas Jihadi supporters try to backpedal and claim that Hamas and ISIS are not similar at all, and they don’t support ISIS, only Hamas.

The primary proof they’ve use is that ISIS is expansionist, and Hamas (they claim) isn’t.

In reality, besides the color of their flags, its impossible to really differentiate between the two.

Both want to create Islamic states. Both brutally murder, torture and oppress their political and religious opponents and citizens. Both use and brutalize children. Both drag dead bodies (they killed) through the streets. Both hate Israel. Both promote Jihad. Both are Islamic.

In truth, the online Jihadi supporters raise an important point. There is one fundamental difference between the two terror organizations / Islamic states.

ISIS is interested in setting up a Global Caliphate, whereas Hamas would be satisfied with setting up an Islamic state only where the State of Israel exists today.

So, could it then be that the fundamental difference is not actually between Hamas and ISIS, but rather with these Hamas supporters?

These Jihadi supporters only want the Jews and Israel destroyed, but don’t necessarily want an Islamic Caliphate in their own backyard (NIMBY).

Apparently, even the Red-Green alliance (Radical Left + Islam) has its limits.

These social media activists don’t seem to grasp that their double-standard political position (only kill the Jews, but not the whole world) is not as morally superior as they think it is.

 

Video: Hamas prefers cutting off legs, not heads (and that makes Hamas morally superior?)

 

Here’s Prime Minister Netanyahu also comparing ISIS to HAMAS:
