Islamic terrorism

Is there anyone Obama will stand up for? Sadly no

Ben Shapiro calls out Obama and his pandering to Muslims.

Liberals think we aren’t in a war for our society, liberal politicians like Obama are the most dangerous.

Finlayson mans up, Vance gets more shrill

While Murray McCully is cuddling terrorists, Chris Finlayson is manning up at a conference that has just wrapped up discussing Islamic terror.

Andrea Vance has her knickers in a bunch over it too, so it must have been a good thing Finlayson attended.

Security services minister Chris Finlayson has confirmed his attendance at an anti-extremism summit widely criticised for singling out Muslims.

He is on his way back from a ministerial meeting at the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism.

Finlayson, the minister responsible for the Government Communications Security Bureau and the Security Intelligence Service, spoke yesterday on “the importance of strengthening the role of civil society in preventing violent extremism”.

The meeting was chaired by Secretary of State John Kerry and followed terror attacks in Paris and Copenhagen.  Read more »

Karl du Fresne on the left’s unwillingness to confront evil

Karl du Fresne calls out the left over their unwillingness to confront evil.

It’s hard to think of a more challenging conundrum than the one posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis).

Labour leader Andrew Little was right last week to describe Isis as evil. It’s a word seldom heard these days because it implies a moral judgment, and moral judgments are unfashionable. But “evil” is the only way to describe men who coldly behead their captives, and then amp up the shock factor by burning one alive.

There is an element of gleeful sadism in their barbarism. Last week they pushed a gay man from the top of a tall building – reportedly the fourth such execution for homosexuality.

As with their other atrocities, they posted pictures and video online, a gesture that was part boast, part taunt. In doing so, they were saying to the world: “Look what we’re capable of. There is no limit to what we will do.

“Norms of civilised behaviour don’t apply to us. In fact we hold the civilised world in contempt. You know, and we know, that you are too weak and divided to stop us.”

And these were merely the more flamboyant examples of Isis’ depravity – the ones calculated to get our attention and fill us with fear, horror and anger.

Almost unnoticed in the background, Isis is proceeding with its grand plan to establish an Islamic caliphate, which means systematically slaughtering or enslaving anyone who stands in its way. No-one, then, can dispute that Isis is evil. The conundrum is what the rest of the world should do about it.

I wish there was a pat answer, but Isis presents a unique challenge because it stands apart from all norms of combat or diplomacy.

It has no regard for human lives, including its own members. It acknowledges no rules, it has no interest in negotiation and its adherents – who seem to include a significant number of thugs with criminal records – are said to be happy to die for their cause because it will ensure entry into paradise. How do you fight such an enemy?

Yet doing nothing is not an option. Either we believe civilised values are worth defending and that vulnerable people deserve protection from mass murderers, or we don’t. And if we do, we can’t just whistle nonchalantly while looking the other way and pretending it isn’t happening.

What can the West learn from Egypt?

egyp-MMAP-md

I came across a very well written article which is very long but well worth the read.

You can read it in full here.

It was written by a woman in Egypt in Arabic and was translated by John Hayward. We do not have the author’s real name as she cannot safely talk about Islam openly without putting her life in danger. From her we learn what happens when Islam takes over a country.

Her article ends with the following plea:

Please listen to my voice, my cry. Please see and feel my tears. Listen to my blood pounding with my message. I am a surviving victim of Islam.

Al-Qaeda use Ed Snowden’s leaks to evade surveillance

al-qaeda-militant-expansion.si

Ed Snowden, one of Kim Doctcom’s friends, has revealed sufficient security services trade craft in monitoring terrorists, that Al-Qaeda have made a training film to teach the terrorists and interested lone wolf gunmen that have nothing to do with Islam updated methods.

Confirming the fears of Western intelligence agencies, Al-Qaeda has released a new video guide on how to avoid being detected. They based their tutorial on Edward Snowden’s leaks concerning Western spying methods, British media reported.

The seven and a half minute tutorial video made by the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization and released by its media platform, provides a detailed guide on how terrorists can avoid being tracked… The report says that the video gives a list of countries and companies cooperating with intelligence agencies and provides a list of software packages to protect against surveillance.

That’s the same Snowden that has been trying to destabilise a democratically elected Government and influence an election right here in New Zealand.  He did so while on the payroll of Kim Dotcom who had the singular objective to destroy John Key.

What continues to boggle the mind is that the Green and Labour Parties will back clowns like Snowden in the face of clear evidence that instead of being a whistle blower, he is in fact a traitor and a saboteur to western democracies. Read more »

Hamas celebrates Palestinian terror attack on Israeli bus

Hamas came out and hoodwinked the international community by condemning the attack on Charlie Hebdo, but with the latest terror attack on Israel in Tel Aviv they have come out praising the terrorists.

The IDF reports on the attack:

This morning, January 21, 2015, a Palestinian terrorist injured at least twelve people in a stabbing attack in Tel Aviv. Security forces neutralized the terrorist and are currently searching for additional suspects.

The terrorist, a 23 year old male from the West Bank city of Tulkarem, stabbed several passengers on a bus in central Tel Aviv. According to reports, at least twelve people were injured in the attack, four of them severely.

The suspect was later detained, and casualties were minimized due to the combined efforts of the bus driver, a young Israeli boy riding the bus to school, and members of the Israeli Prison Services in the area.

The terrorist began his attack, and stabbed the bus driver, who simultaneously attempted to defend himself and stop the moving bus. Meanwhile, a young boy on his way to school managed to break a window to allow passengers to escape. He then successfully slowed the terrorist’s attack by throwing his school bag at him as the terrorist headed in his direction, allowing the boy to escape.

The suspect then exited the bus and continued his rampage, indiscriminately stabbing people on the street. He was quickly stopped and detained by Israeli Prison Services, who were heading to a court in the area. A security force office appropriately exhibited his readiness in such a situation; he chased the terrorist, yelled for him to halt, and as he didn’t comply, shot warning shots in the air. As the Palestinian man continued to flee, the security officer successfully stopped him with a non-fatal gun shot to his leg.

Head lone wolf of all the lone wolf gunmen says attack some more, but don’t worry it’s not at all related to Islam

The head lone wolf of all the lone wolf gunmen has called for more attacks by the other lone wolves out there.

But we mustn’t be afraid this has nothing at all to do with Islam.

Al-Qaeda’s Yemen branch called for lone-wolf attacks against the United States and the West in a video posted Tuesday, days after the group claimed responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo killings.

One of the group’s ideologues, Nasser bin Ali al-Ansi, urged supporters to conduct what he called “individual jihad,” according to the SITE monitoring group, which tracks Islamist extremists online.

“We are preparing and lurking for the enemies of Allah. We incite the believers to do that,” Ansi is quoted as saying in the online video.

In a previous video, Ansi claimed Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula was behind the attack on French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, the start of three days of bloodshed in France that left 17 people dead.   Read more »

Definitely no problems to see here…

Islam is a religion of peace, no need to fear, no need to over react…

Germany’s anti-Islamic PEGIDA movement says it has cancelled a planned march on Monday, citing a death threat against organisers from the Islamic State jihadist group.

“Cancelled! Dear friends, unfortunately we must cancel our 13th meeting due to security concerns,” the group ‘Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident’ said on its Facebook page on Sunday.

“What in police jargon is called an ‘abstract threat’ has changed to a ‘concrete death threat’ against a member of the organising team. IS terrorists have ordered his assassination.”

Germany’s Der Spiegel news weekly reported on Friday that foreign intelligence services had picked up communications by some “known international jihadists”, without giving specific details.

The intelligence, which was passed to German authorities, indicated they had discussed possible attacks on PEGIDA rallies.   Read more »

Claims that Islam is a “religion of peace” is a shameful lie

Douglas Murray at  The Spectator explains why it is a shameful lie to describe any religion, but in particular Islam as a “religion of peace”.

The West’s movement towards the truth is remarkably slow. We drag ourselves towards it painfully, inch by inch, after each bloody Islamist assault.

In France, Britain, Germany, America and nearly every other country in the world it remains government policy to say that any and all attacks carried out in the name of Mohammed have ‘nothing to do with Islam’. It was said by George W. Bush after 9/11, Tony Blair after 7/7 and Tony Abbott after the Sydney attack last month. It is what David Cameron said after two British extremists cut off the head of Drummer Lee Rigby in London, when ‘Jihadi John’ cut off the head of aid worker Alan Henning in the ‘Islamic State’ and when Islamic extremists attacked a Kenyan mall, separated the Muslims from the Christians and shot the latter in the head. And, of course, it is what President François Hollande said after the massacre of journalists and Jews in Paris last week.

All these leaders are wrong. In private, they and their senior advisers often concede that they are telling a lie. The most sympathetic explanation is that they are telling a ‘noble lie’, provoked by a fear that we — the general public — are a lynch mob in waiting. ‘Noble’ or not, this lie is a mistake. First, because the general public do not rely on politicians for their information and can perfectly well read articles and books about Islam for themselves. Secondly, because the lie helps no one understand the threat we face. Thirdly, because it takes any heat off Muslims to deal with the bad traditions in their own religion. And fourthly, because unless mainstream politicians address these matters then one day perhaps the public will overtake their politicians to a truly alarming extent.

If politicians are so worried about this secondary ‘backlash’ problem then they would do well to remind us not to blame the jihadists’ actions on our peaceful compatriots and then deal with the primary problem — radical Islam — in order that no secondary, reactionary problem will ever grow.

We must confront radical Islam, otherwise it will grow.

Yet today our political class fuels both cause and nascent effect. Because the truth is there for all to see. To claim that people who punish people by killing them for blaspheming Islam while shouting ‘Allah is greatest’ has ‘nothing to do with Islam’ is madness. Because the violence of the Islamists is, truthfully, only to do with Islam: the worst version of Islam, certainly, but Islam nonetheless.

Last week, a chink was broken in this wall of disinformation when Sajid Javid, the only Muslim-born member of the British cabinet, and one of its brightest hopes, dipped a toe into this water. After the Paris attacks, he told the BBC: ‘The lazy answer would be to say that this has got nothing whatsoever to do with Islam or Muslims and that should be the end of that. That would be lazy and wrong.’ Sadly, he proceeded to utter the second most lazy thing one can say: ‘These people are using Islam, taking a peaceful religion and using it as a tool to carry out their activities.’

How many times have we heard this? …from Obama, to Cameron, to many other politicians.

It is a lie.   Read more »

A message for Shayne Currie and other cowards
