PA Arrests Man After Son Curses 9-Year-Old Wife of Mohammed [video]

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

Mirroring ISIS in Syria, the Palestinian Authority arrested an Arab resident of Ramallah after he posted a video onto Facebook of his son cursing one of the wives of Muhammad, according to a report in Al-Watan.

The man said he posted it because he was converting from Sunni Islam to Shiite Islam.

In the video, the boy, encouraged by his father, curses Aisha, Muhammad’s 9-year-old third wife whose father, Abu Bakr, was the first Sunni Caliph. The Shiite’s claim Ali was meant to be the Caliph. Aisha is connected to the Hadith’s which are central to the Sunni version of Islam.

The boy’s father should consider himself lucky that the Palestinian Authority, unlike ISIS, will probably only torture and execute him and not his child – though one can never be sure when it comes to those wacky Palestinian Authority Islamists.

Ya’alon Warns Israel’s Enemies Divided on Ideology But United in Hatred

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon warned Tuesday that Israel’s enemies are split along ideological lines, but united in their hatred of the Jewish State.

The defense minister noted there appear are several axes among those aligned against Israel: on one side are forces united with the Muslim Brotherhood, which include Turkey and Qatar. On another, there are those united with the Global Jihad movement, which include Salafi Islamists such as Al Qaeda-linked groups such as the Army of Islam, and Da’esh (ISIS).

Both are united in their hatred of Jews and Israel, and the “unwillingness… to recognize our right to exist as the nation state of the Jewish people,” Ya’alon said – as is the Palestinian Authority.

[PLO Chairman Yasser] “Arafat and [Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud] Abbas also did not want to end the conflict on the 1967 borders,” he said.

In remarks broadcast last week on official Palestinian Authority television, Abbas said in Arabic to the United Nations Human Rights Commission in Geneva: “Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen, haven’t you wondered: For how long will this protracted Israeli occupation of our land last? After 67 years (i.e., the re-creation of the State of Israel), how long? Do you think it can last, and that it benefits the Palestinian people?”

The remarks were translated and reported by the media watchdog organization Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). Www.palwatch.org

Israel has “zero tolerance” for arms sales to terrorists, the defense minister said in remarks following alleged Israeli air strikes against Hezbollah near the Syrian-Lebanese border.

Speaking at a Kibbutz Leadership conference in Judea-based Kibbutz Ma’ale Hamisha, near Jerusalem, Ya’alon warned in a cryptic remark, “Those who cross red lines will be hit.” It is believed that Ya’alon was referring not only to standard ordnance but also to the transfer of chemical weapons by Syria to the Hezbollah terrorists who have fought to defend President Bashar al-Asssad.

Ya’alon commented that the Hamas terror organization has only withheld hostilities out of dire necessity: “not because they have turned Zionist, but due to the price they paid [last year] in Operation Protective Edge.”

German Police Chief: Muslim Violence Shows Christian Refugees Must Be Housed Separately

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

(JNi.media) Jörg Radek, deputy head of Germany’s police union, said Christian and Muslim migrants should be lodged separately, following the increasing numbers of attacks on Christians by Muslims in refugee centers. And according to The Independent, a policy of segregation has already been implemented in the German state of Thuringia after Christian migrants in asylum centers were attacked by Sunnis attempting to impose Sharia law.

Rainer Wendt, another German police union official, said violence between groups of illegal migrants in German hostels is common. “We‘ve been seeing this violence for weeks and even months,” Wendt reported. “Groups join forces based on ethnicity, religion or clan structures and attack each other with knives and even weapons they have made themselves.” He explained that “Sunnis fight Shiites, there are Salafists of varying kinds… Women are being forced to wear veils. Men are forced to pray. Islamists want to impose their values.”

International Society for Human Rights official Max Klingberg complained that many migrants arriving in Germany are radical Islamists. “Among the new arrivals is not a small amount of religious intensity, it is at least at the level of the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.

“I think housing separated according to religion makes perfect sense,” Radek told Die Welt. German police reported that 14 people were injured in two separate clashes that erupted between refugees last Sunday at a temporary migrant shelter in Kassel-Calden in northern Germany. On Thursday evening the week before, a fight broke out among some 200 Syrian and Afghan refugees wielding table legs and slats at a shelter in Leipzig. “They attacked each other with clubs and threw things at each other,” a police spokesman reported, according to the Independent.

“The police have reached their absolute breaking point,” Radek stated, explaining: “Our officials are increasingly being called to confrontations in refugee homes. When there are 4,000 people in a home which only actually has places for 750, this confinement then leads to aggression where even a tiny thing like the corridor to the toilet can lead to violence.”

According to bt2.net, the European establishment media is largely ignoring ethnic violence as illegal immigrants stream into the West. The most recent incident took place this week in a Danish refugee center near Copenhagen where a “a stateless Palestinian” in a refugee center stabbed a police officer.

Germany is expected to get about one million asylum applications this year. The German government has set aside $6.75 billion to fund accommodation, and designated an extra 3,000 police to cope with this influx. But with training for police taking around three years, according to The Independent, Germany’s 16 federal states rely largely on private security firms to maintain the peace.

ISIS Video Claims Burning of Four Men Fighting with Iran-Backed Forces

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) has posted a new gruesome video showing four men in orange jumpsuits being burned alive while hanging upside down from a scaffold.

The victims were said to be members of the Popular Mobilization Forces, allied with the Iraqi government and backed by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, Long War Journal reported.

The ISIS said the executions were in revenge for a Shi’ite leader’s execution of a Sunni Muslim victim, who was burned to death while the Shi’ite leader mocked the ISIS.

In a separate report from Orient-News,net, the ISIS allegedly used mustard gas Tuesday in an attack on Aleppo, injuring 20 people, most of them civilians.
It was the second time in a week that people arrived at a local hospital with breathing difficulties.

US Warships in Red Sea, Prepare to Evacuate Embassy in Yemen

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

The USS Iwo Jima and the USS Fort McHenry warships sailed into the Red Sea on Wednesday.

Both are positioned to take on foreign service employees and their families fleeing the U.S. embassy in Yemen, if deemed necessary. Iranian-backed Shi’ite Houthi rebels overtook the presidential palace after a long barrage of shelling in Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, on Tuesday, according to CNN. Information Minister Nadia Sakkaf told the news network, “The President has no control [over the country.”

Yemeni President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi is believed to be in his private residence, and was not in the presidential palace at the time of the attack. However, the president’s residence is reportedly under attack as well, as is the prime minister’s residence as well, according to Sakkaf.

The attack on the presidential regime apparently comes in response to a decision to introduce a new constitution without the approval of the Houthi constituency. On Saturday, Houthi rebels also abducted presidential chief of staff Ahmed bin Mubarak in Sana’a.

The southern city of Aden is still reportedly under the control of the government regime, which closed the Aden port and sealed roads leading into and out of Sana’a, according to Yemeni state television. But the government has little other control, and it may just be a matter of time before even that much is wrested away by Al Qaeda.

Meanwhile, the situation is becoming increasingly perilous for foreigners in the country – and for Americans in particular, given the ongoing “war on terror” being waged by the U.S. against Al Qaeda.

Yemen is home to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) – the Al Qaeda branch that partnered with Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in the recent Paris terror attacks. AQAP claimed direct responsibility for the massacre attack on the offices of the French ‘Charlie Hebdo’ satiric weekly magazine.

The takeover of the Yemeni presidential palace came just a day after clashes between government forces and Houthi rebel fighters left nine people dead and 67 others wounded.

That clash followed an attack Monday night on a U.S. embassy vehicle in Sana’a. It is not clear who fired at the vehicle, which was clearly marked. U.S. diplomatic personnel were in the car at the time. No one was injured according to a report by Fox News Insider. So far the embassy is still open.

“[We] are deeply concerned about the turn of events in Yemen over the last few days,” a State Department official also told U.S.-based ABC News. “[We are] continuing to closely monitor developments…and adjust the embassy’s security posture response in accordance to the situation on the ground.”

Persian Gulf Nations Form Regional Navy, Police Force

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

 

The six-member Gulf Cooperation Council hasS created a joint naval and police force in response to their mutual concerns over Iran’s growing nuclear prowess and the rise of Sunni Muslim radical groups.

The force was created at a regional conference held in Qatar, according to a report broadcast on Israel public radio.

Six nations from around the Persian Gulf will each send representatives to the regional force, and supplement it with a common fleet.

The new naval force is to be headquartered in Bahrain. A new regional police force is to be administered from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

Both are intended to fight terrorism and organized crime, particularly due to Iran’s growing influence in the region, and the rise of Sunni Muslim extremist groups, according to the report.

ISIS Seizes Key Syrian, Jordanian Border Crossings

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Al Qaeda-linked Sunni militants from the Islamic State of Iraq in Syria captured key two border crossings on Sunday — including one that leads from Iraq directly into Jordan. The other is a crossing into Syria.

Jordanian officials have been dreading this possibility for weeks and monitoring the situation across the border for some time.

The terrorist group has also seized four more towns, further broadening the wide swathe of territory already under its control. That band of ISIS-controlled land now spreads from nearly all of northern Iraq, to the eastern part of the country, and beginning to bleed down to the south, and into the west – where Jordan lies.

Beyond Jordan, ISIS hopes to eventually reach the Sinai Peninsula, Gaza and then finally Israel. Less than a month ago, terrorists from the group kidnapped a Turkish consul in Tikrit and 80 Turkish citizens. Many are still being held hostage.

The terrorist group’s dream of carving out an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or an Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (ISIL) as it is called in Iraq, is rapidly advancing.

A top military intelligence official in Iraq told CBC News on condition of anonymity that the militants’ objective is Baghdad, “where we are working frantically to bolster our defenses.” But the Iraqi military is badly outgunned, he admitted. “I will be honest with you,” he said. “Even that is not up to the level of what is needed. Morale is low.”

Jihadists from neighboring Arab nations – as well as from European countries and even from as far away as the United States – are being drawn to the battle as flies to honey and are traveling to join the conflict, as in the past they traveled to fight in Syria.

Those who have already acquired their objectives in Iraq are now supplying their fellow jihadists in Syria with weaponry won in recent battles to fight in the civil war across the border – or at least, until there is no border.

Meanwhile, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who has served in office since 2006, has not given any indication he intends to step down. But as he did in Cairo, U.S. President Barack Obama has sent signals he no longer supports the Iraqi leader during the crisis, although he agreed t osend 300 military advisers to retrain Iraqi troops. Obama also said he might consider air strikes to support the Iraqi military, but did not make any commitments.

With Iran opposing American involvement, it seems likely Obama will drag his heels as much as possible, fearing to intervene and offend Iranian sensibilities.

The new Iraqi parliament, set to meet by the end of this month, is expected to elect a speaker and a new president. The president-elect will then ask the leader who wins a simple majority of the 328-member parliament to form the new government.

During the most recent election, al-Maliki’s ‘State of the Law’ party won the most mandates – 92 – but it is not enough to pull a majority for a new coalition government, especially in light of the current crisis.
