‘We hate Westerners – we are ISIS’ – chilling words of Irish Muslim teens to cleric

Shaykh Dr Muhammad Umar Al-Qadri says that two mosques are seeing Islamic extremists congregating there regularly.

The Imam of the Al-Mustafa mosque in Blanchardstown also claims that there are now up to 100 extremists in Ireland.

He says that his group, the Muslim Peace and Integration Council, is working to promote peace but are meeting resistance in some quarters.

Speaking to the Irish Independent, he said: “We need to stop the radicals from spreading their lies to the youth.”

But he said that in one mosque, the religious leaders never denounce atrocities carried out in the name of the terror group Isil.

The Muslim community in Ireland is now about 40,000 strong.

Shaykh Al-Qadri warned that radicalisation of Muslim youth through both face-to-face and online interaction is becoming more and more prominent in Ireland.

Young people need to be educated about extremism to prevent this from happening, he said.

The day before the Muslim Peace and Integration Council held the ‘Not in Our Name’ demonstration against Isil in Dubin, the renowned cleric met three teenage, male Muslims in the city centre who supported the terrorists.

“I was not in my religious clothing so the boys did not recognise me as a Shaykh. I approached them and asked if they would come to the demonstration the next day. They said: ‘No, we hate Westerners, we are Isis’ (Isil). I was shocked.

“One of them then proceeded to quote a passage from the teachings of an Islamic scholar, which he thought justified violence against non-Muslims. I then asked him to give me another quote from that book and he could not. I kept asking him about this book and also about the teachings of the Qur’an.

“It turned out he had no clue about the teachings of Islam but was just quoting this passage from someone else.”

Shaykh Al-Qadri added that, at the moment, extremists in Ireland are non-violent and extremist in their ideology only.

He also said that there are no Sunni and Shiite tensions in Ireland and this would never be a source for violence here.

Asked how many individuals the gardaí were investigating for suspected terror links, a Garda spokesperson said: “For security reasons, we do not discuss operational matters of that nature.”

Knife surrender bin to be unveiled outside Green Lane Mosque

Yeah…like that’s going to happen.

Another knife bin is being opened in Birmingham outside a Mosque touched by the tragedy of violent crime.

The bin will be unveiled outside Green Lane Mosque and Community Centre in Small Heath.

Grandfather-of-22 Mohammed Saleem, aged 75, was fatally knifed yards from his home as he walked home alone after praying at the mosque in April 2013.

His racist killer 25-year-old Ukrainian student Pavlo Lapshyn, who went on to plant three bombs near mosques, was sentenced to 40 years in prison at the Old Bailey, the following Autumn.

The Mosque has also conducted funerals for a number of local stabbing victims.

The bin is part of a Communities Working Together initiative.

Last month organisers of the knife surrender also placed a bin outside the Handsworth’s Cannon Street Memorial Baptist Church, in a bid to make the city streets safer.

Mosque spokesman Amer Ijaz said: “Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre believes that it is for each of us to take responsibility for the society in which we live.

“It is with this in mind that we have joined forces with the Birmingham Empowerment Forum on the Live not Knives project.

“This initiative will empower individuals and groups to break out of a cycle of violent crime by joining this knife surrender in a trusted location.

 

 Local Muslim leaders speak out after Lackawanna terror arrest

Muslim leaders cry victim once again.

I like my headline better…..

GARFIELD

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A local community is devastated and in shock. Following the arrest of Lackawanna resident Arafat Nagi, 44, local Muslim leaders are speaking out.

  “People need to recognize that the Lackawanna community in no way, shape, or form wanted any of this to happen and this is not the norm,” said Executive Director of Western New York Muslims, Julie Algubani.

Nagi was arrested Wednesday after federal authorities say he pledged allegiance to terrorist group ISIL, used social media to recruit other supporters and allegedly purchased items he planned to use to fight for their cause.

Algubani told News 4 stereotyping is not a new obstacle for Muslims, and she hopes the arrest doesn’t create new tensions.

     victim card2“Unfortunately because Islamophobia is so strong, we are, you know we recognize that it’s so strong. And unfortunately it’s something that as a Muslim in the community we have to deal on a daily basis whether something like this happens or not,” she said

President of the Muslim Public Affairs Council of Western New York, Dr. Khalid Qazi sees things a little differently.

“There obviously are some issues in terms of some Islamophobes that do exist in many communities and to some extent in our community also but the community in general has been very welcoming,” he said.

There are 25,000 Muslims in Western New York. Those is Lackawanna are mostly from Yemen.

Dr. Qazi says Nagi was no longer part of that community.

“He had withdrawn from the community about three years ago. He had some domestic issues, some family issues,” Dr. Qazi told News 4.

Since Nagi’s arrest, Dr. Qazi has been working with Muslim leaders in Lackwanna, meeting regularly to have open discussions on how best to address the situation.

He and Algubani agree Nagi’s alleged actions are out of character for the community, and hope continued discussion can ease anxiety for both Muslims and non-Muslims living there.

 

Chris Matthews to DNC Chair: What’s the Difference Between Democrat, Socialist?

WOW!! And I thought Chris Matthews was a Democratic stooge…..OH WAIT!! He still is!!

washerman shultz   MSNBC host Chris Matthews asked Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to explain the difference between a Democrat and a socialist.

She didn’t.

dunce-cap-hat On Thursday’s episode of Matthews’ show “Hardball,” Matthews asked Wasserman-Schultz whether Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would get a chance to speak at the Democratic National Convention “as a socialist” if he fails to win the presidential nomination.
Wasserman Schultz insisted that the independent senator, who caucuses with Democrats, definitely would be allowed to speak because his “progressive, populist message” resonates with a sector of the party.

 But she told Matthews she didn’t know whether he’d get a prime-time slot or a time earlier in the day when, as Matthews put it, “nobody’s watching.”

He then appeared to catch Wasserman Shultz off guard when he asked, “What’s the difference between a Democrat and a socialist? I used to think there was a big difference. What do you think it is?”

A disarmed Wasserman Schultz tried to change the subject to the difference between Republicans and Democrats, but Matthews pressed her.

    “You’re the chairman of the Democratic Party. Tell me what’s the difference between you and a socialist,” he said.

Wasserman Schultz continued to contrast her party with the GOP, when Matthews interjected, “I think it’s a huge difference.”
(No…there is NO difference,)

HuffPost Arabic’s Muslim Brotherhood connections

Best Comment Below:

Keith Thompson Huffington Post is about as legitimate of a news source as MSNBC
We couldn’t have said it better!!

“Don’t be shocked if you expect one thing and find something entirely different,” writes Anas Fouda, editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post’s brand new Arabic-language edition, HuffPost Arabi, in his inaugural editorial. Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the sectarian cleric admired by both Khanfar and Fouda, speaking on Al Jazeera Arabic (Source: YouTube)

The warning is apt, for presumably few readers indeed will have expected the liberal American media juggernaut to launch a venture headed by two prominent figures of the Middle East’s religious right.

Fouda, previously an executive producer at Al Jazeera Arabic (AJA), is managing the website in partnership with his old boss, former AJA director general Wadah Khanfar. Their profiles may make for interesting perusal for existing Huffington Post readers unfamiliar with the Arabic-language media landscape.

 An Egyptian national now living in Turkey, Fouda was arrested in the United Arab Emirates in 2013 on suspicion of affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) – an affiliation which he freely admitted had existed since 1988, though he claimed to have held no formal party role since 1995. A browse of his Twitter timeline shows his politics to be fairly bread-and-butter MB; recommending, for instance, articles praising “His Eminence” Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Holocaust-revisionist cleric who routinely denounces Shiite and Alawite Muslims, to say nothing of Jews. Indeed, Fouda has himself on occasion found less-than-obliging things to say about his Semitic cousins, e.g., tweeting last July that, “Only after the latest Israeli aggression on Gaza did I realize the number of Egyptian Jews has increased greatly since the coup.”

Khanfar, however, is the heavyweight of the pair; the man who made Al Jazeera the titan of Arabic media that it is today. He’s also, according to ex-colleagues, the man who made Al Jazeera the Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece that it is today. A former Baghdad correspondent complained that once Khanfar took over the reins, “the liberals, the secular types, the Arab nationalists [were] getting downsized, and the Islamic position [was] dominating the newsroom.” Former AJA Washington bureau chief Hafez al-Mirazi similarly said that “From the first day of the Wadah Khanfar era, there was a dramatic change, especially because of him selecting assistants who are hard-line Islamists.” Khanfar has defended his Brotherhoodisation of the editorial line as simply a reflection of a new “political reality” in the Arab world – never mind any Arabs who may seek to challenge that reality.

Western Anglophone audiences, too, have been treated to Khanfar’s perspectives in the past, in articles that may well indicate what he has in store for HuffPost. Whether it was his 2011 Guardian column titled, “Those who support democracy must welcome the rise of political Islam,” or his 2012 celebration in the same newspaper of Muslim Brother Muhammad Morsi’s electoral victory in Egypt as “a clear message that the Arab spring was still alive,” the message has been as persistent as it has been one-dimensional. On Twitter, he re-tweets Qaradawi directly.

In her own note introducing HuffPost Arabi, Arianna Huffington told readers to expect “original reporting by independent journalists” covering “problems and crises like gender inequality” and “the devastating rise of […] extremism.”

Khanfar, on the other hand, when asked in 2011 after his resignation from AJA what he planned to do next, replied, “I’m going to continue in the same spirit of al-Jazeera.” It’s too soon to tell which of these two visions – Khanfar’s or Arianna’s – will prevail on the pages of HuffPost Arabi, but it certainly can’t be both of them.

 Kerry: Iran’s “Death to America” Doesn’t Mean They Want to Kill Us

infidel - Greenfield  At no time was he made aware of an Iranian plan to destroy America.

Secretary of State John Kerry is still seeking a nuanced explanation for Iran’s government saying, “Death to America”. He called the Iranian government’s cries of “Death to America” “not helpful” and suggested that the Supreme Leader might not really mean it.

And now Kerry would like to emphasize that aside from the “Death to America” chants and the nuclear bombs and constant threats of war, at no time was he made aware of an Iranian plan to destroy America.

When Kerry appeared before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Tuesday to defend the Iran nuclear agreement, Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) asked him about Tehran’s policy in the light of the “death to America” chants common at events presided over by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hasan Rouhani.

   kerry caricature“It is the policy of the ayatollah – if you can answer for him – that Iran wants to destroy the United States?” Poe asked Kerry. “Is that still their policy, as far as you know?”

[Kerry:]  “I don’t believe they’ve said that. I think they’ve said ‘Death to America’ in their chants, but I have not seen this specific.”

“Well, I kind of take that to mean that they want us dead,” Poe said. “That would seem like that would be their policy. He said that. That – you don’t think that’s their policy?” …

“I think they have a policy of opposition to us and of great enmity, but I have no specific knowledge of a plan by Iran to actually destroy us,” Kerry replied.

Well there are two options.

1. Iran’s leaders keep saying things they don’t mean… which means we probably shouldn’t trust them not to go nuclear despite the deal

2. They do mean what they say… in which case we know why they want the nukes

So does Iran have a “Death to America” policy? Here you go, John.

In response to a question by a parliamentarian on how long this battle will continue, Khamenei said,“Battle and jihad are endless because evil and its front continue to exist. … This battle will only end when the society can get rid of the oppressors’ front with America at the head of it, which has expanded its claws on human mind, body and thought. … This requires a difficult and lengthy struggle and need for great strides.”

Muslims Now Suing Florida Gun Shop for Refusing to Sell Guns to Muslim Terrorists

You’ll recall last week that a gun shop owner in Florida declared his store a “Muslim free zone” because he refused to help arm enemies to the United States. Now a Muslim group is suing the gun shop owner for refusing to sell guns to terrorists.

Last week RightWingNews reported on the story of Inverness, Fla., gun-shop owner Andy Hallinan who decided that selling guns to Muslim terrorists wasn’t such a great idea.

Now he’s being sued

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations filed a federal lawsuit on Wednesday against a gun shop whose owner declared it a “Muslim-free zone” earlier this month.

…In the lawsuit, CAIR-FL asks the court to grant an injunction against the gun shop, prohibiting it from discriminating against Muslims or instituting any policies or practices that discriminate or segregate people on the basis of religion.

Apparently CAIR insists that all American guns stores should serve terrorists. Nice.

 

More on…The UK is Screwed

“Shocking pictures show how computer whizz hid ‘deadly ricin’ capable of killing 1,400 inside toy Lamborghini supercar,”

…but he wasn’t going to poison anybody. Oh no…. his mommy says:

“He’s a goot boy.”

During the execution of one of the warrants, a toy car was recovered which contained the substance which Ali believed was Ricin

Shocking pictures show how a computer geek attempted to stash a batch of ‘deadly ricin poison’ capable of killing 1,400 people inside a toy Lamborghini.

Mohammed Ali, 31, attempted to purchase the chemical weapon over the ‘dark web’ from his home in Liverpool.

But the software programmer didn’t realise that his supplier was an FBI agent who tipped off police in the UK and sent him harmless powder.

Under the username Weirdos 0000, Ali struck a deal with a supplier on the internet black market to buy 500mg of powder for £320 – enough to kill 1,400 people.

The dad-of-two took delivery of the powder stashed inside five vials hidden inside a battery compartment Police then swooped on his home and arrested him under anti-terror laws.

During the execution of one of the warrants, a toy car was recovered which contained the substance which Ali believed was Ricin

Ultraviolet light revealed Ali had handled the package which had been laced with a marker substance.

Ali held his head in his hands as he was found guilty of attempting to have a chemical weapon in his possession at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today.

He will be sentenced in September and faces a lengthy spell behind bars.

The court heard Ali approached the undercover agent in January with a private message: “Hi, would you be able to make me some ricin and send it to the UK?”

In a series of encrypted chats they discussed the price of a lethal dose, discounts for bulk orders and repeat purchases, and ricin’s “shelf life”, jurors were told.

In his defence, Ali told jurors that he was just “curious” and wanted to test the boundaries of the Dark Web unaware that ricin was illegal. (BULLSHIT TIME!!)bullshit-meter-2

He told the jury: “I was interested in the Dark Net and ricin. I just wanted to know what the fuss was about.[“]

But prosecutor Sally Howes QC said Ali was a “chancer” who lied to police about having ricin when he was arrested in the hope that he would “get away with it”.

And everything about his conduct pointed to a man who carefully and meticulously researched and carried out a plan to buy ricin.

(How does one go about buying Ricin? Isn’t that a deadly poison that ordinary people are not allowed to purchase? Ifso, then ISIS can just go in and  buy a truckload. Right?)

Ms Howes told the jury that ricin was the “perfect poison” because it killed without leaving a trace in the body. Ali had ordered enough to kill up to 1,400 people, although his potential targets were not known.

Justice Saunders said: “There is no evidence that he was planning any sort of terrorist attack.

“There is also no evidence that he had in mind any specific victims for ricin. I do not accept he was going to dispose of it.

“I’m satisfied it would have remained in his possession in some way and that is the basis on which I propose to sentence.”…
