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!”

‘Sharia Police’ on Patrol in Germany [video]

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Radical Muslim Salafists have formed a “Sharia police force” and are patrolling the city of Wuppertal, targeting the nightlife area of the western German city.

Germany has outlawed extreme Salafist groups, but that has had little effect on fundamentalists bent on enforcing Islamic law on “infidels.”

The self-style police are so brazen that they wear easily-seen orange vests with the words “Sharia police” emblazoned on the back. They distribute leaflets that urge people to refrain from alcohol, drugs, gambling, and even attending concerts.

Police last week arrested nearly a dozen men, but the only charges that they might be able to file are illegal assembly.

“Intimidation or provocation won’t be tolerated,” Wuppertal Police Chief Birgitta Rademacher said on Friday.

That sounds a bit familiar.

As seen in the news report below, a political leader who is a critic of radical Islam said, “I underestimated the danger the Salafists pose…. Now I cannot walk without police protection, not even shopping.”

The Sharia police is a new challenge for German.

“An appearance that intimidates, unsettles and provokes will not be tolerated. There is no legitimation for this “Sharia Police,” Birgitta Radermacher, police chief of Wuppertal was quoted as saying in a statement.

Time will tell.

German Salafists this weekend posted a YouTube video showing a poster with the English headline “Sharia Controlled Zone” and footage of Salafists recruiting young people and visiting gambling halls.

Der Spiegel’s website reported that police in Bonn are investigating reports that Salafists are harassing people, assaulted a youth for drinking alcohol and tried to force a Muslim girl to wear a veil.

ISIS Terrorist Identified as Murderer in Brussels Jewish Museum Attack

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

The murderer of four people, including two Jews from Tel Aviv, in the attack last May on the Jewish Museum in Brussels was an ISIS terrorist who was one of the captors and torturers of James Foley, Steve Sotloff and a French journalist, who was released and now had identified the killer.

The terrorist is Medhi Nemmouche, a French citizen who is to go on trial in Belgium on Friday for the murders at the museum. He was arrested several days after the terrorist attack, and he fought for the Islamic State (ISIS) in 2013 only three weeks after he was released from prison, where he served five years for armed robbery.

The immediate reaction of Brussels officials after the attack was typical of the head in the sand illusion that makes believe that many terrorists are “lone wolves,” that many attacks on Jews or Jewish institutions are just a coincidence and that the radical Islamic movement in Europe does not threaten to overthrow the entire continent.

The fact that at that time of his arrest he had a white sheet emblazoned with the name of the ISIS clearly indicates Nemmouche, even if he acted alone, was not just some jihadist who woke up one morning and decided to become a terrorist.

Anti-Semitism in France is rampant. Considering that the motive was “open” was a denial of reality.

Nemmouche was identified by French journalist Nicolas Henin as the terrorist who attacked the museum. The fact that he is a French citizen belies the false belief among many European leaders that the jihadists are imports.

“The accused gunman is also French, increasing fears in Europe over European citizens’ ties to extremist groups,” National Public Radio reported. French authorities estimate that nearly 1,000 other people from France have joined the jihadists in Syria, and every one of them, unless they are killed first, could be the next Nemmouche.

Henin, who was kidnapped in Syria in 2013 and held for almost a year, said that Nemmouche was only one of several French citizens who were in charge of the prison where he was held.

The journalist has known for some time that one of his captors was Nemmouche but did not say anything in order to protect other Westerners held by ISIS. He broke his silence after Le Monde reported that investigators have linked the killer with ISIS, which really should not be a surprise considering that the sheet with the name ISIS n it at the time of his arrest was widely reported.

“When Nemmouche wasn’t singing, he tortured,” Henin wrote in Le Point. “The torture lasted the night, up until the dawn prayer,” when radical Muslims appeal to Allah to give them the strength for more barbarism.

Europe’s “everything is just dandy” mirage is its own death sentence. Nemmouche used his French citizenship to return to enter Belgium from Germany and is “a perfect example of the difficulty in tracking European jihadists, reported NPR’s Eleanor Beardsley.

Henin’s lawyer Marie-Laure Ingouf told AFP that “Nemmouche was one of his jailers. All the hostages confirm this. They lived alongside him for several months.”

Henin spent part of his time as hostage along with journalists Foley and Sotloff, who were beheaded by ISIS in the past two weeks. He added that it was clear to him and others in captivity that Nemmouche did not leave Syria in order to become a good citizen.

“It seemed to us that he did not leave for Syria because of some grand ideals but, above all, to make his mark, to carry out a murderous path that he had traced,” Henin said.

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.”

Israel’s United Nations Amb. Prosor: Watch Out Because You’re Next

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor warned the United Nations Wednesday that its willingness to be held ”hostage” by human rights abusers will boomerang on the entire world.

“Today I am here to issue a warning: Stand with Israel and stand against terror before it is too late, before the danger lands on your doorstep and self-preservation strikes its jarring gong,” Prosor said at a special session of the General Assembly that dumped on Israel.

His remark was a quote in a statement by Winston Churchill in 1935, four years before World War II, when he referred to the world’s allowing Germany to re-arm and stated, “The family of nations suffered from a want of foresight, an unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, and a lack of clear thinking and confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong.”

Prosor told the ambassadors of the world that “Hamas must be disarmed, Gaza must be demilitarized., and the international community must divorce itself from the romantic notion of Hamas as ‘freedom fighters.’”

He cited the numbers of people killed in Arab countries and silence from the Arab world.

“In Iraq, over 1,600 people were killed in July. In Libya, clashes between rival militias killed 200 people last month. In Nigeria, Boko Haram has slaughtered nearly 3,000 people this year,” Prosor explained. “It may just be me, but I didn’t hear the Arab group rally to condemn these atrocities. Instead, this group gangs up against the only democratic nation in the Middle East that is defending its citizens from the totalitarian forces threatening every enlightened country in this Assembly.”

“Israel is on the frontline of the war against radical extremism,” Prosor added. “The battle we fight today is the same battle that you all will fight tomorrow….

And yet, some of you have abandoned the only democracy in the Middle East standing against the tide of terrorism. What does this say about your values? What does it mean for the next generation? This institution is being held hostage by some in this Assembly who are the worst human rights abusers.”

Can Jews Unite Even When There Is No Tragedy?

Friday, June 20th, 2014

With all the problems going on in Yiddishkeit today – and there are a lot of them – it is difficult to talk about any of them… as we wait for those 3 kidnapped teenagers to be rescued. Truthfully I have thought about little else since this happened last Friday.

My outrage was reflected yesterday when I fantasized about ridding Israel of all its enemies in one fell swoop. Of course as I also said yesterday, any attempt at a solution like that would be immoral. But I still feel that the west is not sufficiently enlightened about the real problem.

The way I see it Muslim Arabs comprise four different groupings.

• The first is the Radical Islamists that have declared a Jihad with a goal of ridding the Middle East of the Jew and establishing an Islamic Caliphate that would rule via strict Sharia Law. Toward that end, all means necessary must be used. Including mass murder and suicide.

• The second group are those that sympathize with them and support them but would not personally act on it.

• The third are more secular and though they would prefer we weren’t there – would make peace with us just so they could get on with their lives.

• The forth are those who are actually pro Israel.  There is of course some overlap. The lines are not that clearly drawn. But for the most part this is how I see them. The vast majority are comprised of the second and third groups…  with the third I believe being the larger of the two. I have always felt we could forge a peace with them (and of course with the fourth group-  and with the second group being forced to go along).

The first group of radicals is, however, the most significant one. Even though they are relatively small, they are the ones that prevent any kind of peace. They are the ones religiously  motivated to the point of killing and dying for their cause.

I don’t think the West sufficiently appreciates this. They continue to pursue terrorists instead of the real enemy, Radical Islam. I do think Israel realizes this. But the west needs to catch up. Until it does and starts to think the way Israel does, very little will change.

Radical Islam is an idea, not an organization. It is an idea that guides the kidnappers, Hamas, Hezbollah, the 9/11 terrorists, Al Qaida, Islamic Jihad, Iran’s Shia Musilms, and ISIS (the Sunni Radical Muslims in Iraq that have murdered in Nazi-like fashion 1700 Iraqi soldiers by forcing them to lie down into a ditch and shooting them all in the head …claiming a victory for God!) It doesn’t matter what a group calls itself. They are all bound by the religious tenets of Radical Islam.

This is the enemy, not terrorism. And it ought to be fought with all the vigor that the allies fought the Nazis in WWII.

The kidnapped teenagers are from Religious Zionist families – one or more of whom lives on the West Bank. Their Hashkafos are anathema to the Charedi right. They believe in the State of Israel and fly the flag, the right denies its legitimacy and spurns the flag. They believe in army service, the right vilifies it. I could go on. The differences are stark. But today all that is forgotten.

The Agudah has called for a mass gathering in all Yeshivos, Shuls and Batei Midrashim to pray for the safety and welfare of these young boys. Lakewood has issued a call for their students to pray and to dedicate their Torah study for the Zechus of these teens. There were Teffilos yesterday at Kikar Rabin. And yesterday at the Kotel, over 30,000 Jews from every sector of Judaism came together to pray. Was that a Kiddush HaShem? Surely it was. It was inspiring even. But why must we only come together when there is tragedy? Should I be happy that it took the kidnapping of three teenagers to get us there?

ISIS Al Qaeda-Linked Terrorists Heading for Jordan?

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Leaders from the Islamic State of in Syria (or ISIL, as it is known in Iraq) are calling for the execution of Jordanian King Abdullah II.

According to a report written for The Gatestone Institute by Khaled Abu Toameh, The terrorists recently posted a video on YouTube threatening to “slaughter” him.

In the video, they referred to the Western-backed Hashemite monarch as a “tyrant.” Several of the terrorists who appeared in the video were apparently Jordanian citizens; vowing to carry out suicide bombings inside the kingdom, they tore up their passports in front of the camera.

The threat to Jordan is seen as a real and immediate one due to the fact that ISIS/ISIL has captured large swathes of territory on both sides of the Iraqi-Syrian border. Jordan is bound on two sides by Iraq and Syria.

Moreover, the terrorists are not planning to stop at Jordan: according to Toameh, they are planning to carry their jihad also to Gaza, Sinai and Lebanon.

“ISIS is a threat not only to moderate Arabs and Muslims, but also to Israel,” Toameh wrote, “which the terrorists say is their ultimate destination. “The U.S. and its Western allies need to wake up quickly and take the necessary measures to prevent the Islamist terrorists from achieving their goal. Failure to act will result in the establishment in the Middle East of a dangerous extremist Islamist empire that will pose a threat to American and Western interests,” he warned.
