    Iran's largest bank blacklisted From correspondents in Washington September 09, 2006 THE US Treasury Department announced overnight that it had blacklisted one of Iran's largest banks, Bank Saderat, from having any links with US-owned banks. The move effectively cuts Iran's state-owned Bank Saderat off from conducting any business linked to the US financial system. The Treasury Department said it blacklisted Saderat because of its "support for terrorism." "Bank Saderat facilitates Iran's transfer of hundreds of millions of dollars to Hezbollah and other terrorist organisations each year," said Stuart Levey, undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence. "We will no longer allow...

    London's Terror Bank August 21, 2008 In the war on terror, the U.S. has had no greater friend than the United Kingdom. And as the U.S. economy continues to suffer under the burdens of Sarbanes-Oxley, our British friends have demonstrated a more sensible approach to financial regulation. For both of the preceding statements, however, there is an exception. Even as the U.K. stands with us in rallying the world against doing business with Tehran, an Iranian bank with a history of financing terrorism continues to operate in London. On September 8, 2006, the U.S. Treasury announced it was cutting off...

    Hamas on Friday denounced the “Muezzin Law”, which passed a preliminary reading in the Knesset this week, warning the law would face “stiff resistance”. “This decision will not pass,” deputy Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said after Friday prayers in Gaza. “Our people and nation will raise the Azan all over the world,” he said, using the Arabic word for the Muslim call to prayer, according to AFP. The “Muezzin Law” was originally to have been applied during all hours of the day, but haredi parties objected to its original wording, fearing that it could be used to silence the Shabbat...

    Hamas is reportedly planning to endorse a state of Palestine along the 1967 borders — a move that would be a monumental shift from the group’s long-held policy of reclaiming all of historic Palestine — though it won’t recognize Israel’s legitimacy. […] Talk of “the 1967 borders” generally refers to the pre-1967 lines between Israel and the territory it captured in that year’s Six-Day War from Jordan (in Jerusalem and the West Bank), Egypt (Gaza and the Sinai) and Syria (the Golan Heights). The amendments to the charter were reportedly worked out during a meeting in Doha, Qatar, which was...

The report suggests that the Muslim Brotherhood is secretly leading Islamists in building a parallel society in Sweden by infiltrating organizations and political parties in the country. It also claims that there is an “established structure of values among the country’s political elite which stipulate how as a citizen you should approach ‘minorities’”.

The problem is that it addresses the wrong details. Israel’s problem with Hamas wasn’t its tactics for destroying Hamas’s attack tunnels. Israel faced two challenges in its war with Hamas that summer. The first had to do with the regional and global context of the war. The second had to do with its understanding of its enemy on the...

Although not as famous as other speakers — Madonna, Michael Moore, Gloria Steinem, Ashley Judd, Angel a Davis, Van Jones — she is proving to be equally controversial.

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) has called his previous defense of Louis Farrakhan “the mistake in my past,” but those who are ready to proclaim him a “moderate” and anoint him head of the Democratic National Committee should consider carefully the fact that he is the keynote speaker for Muslim American Society (MAS)/ Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) annual convention next week. The ties to Hamas are numerous – not that Hamas ties are likely to give Democrats pause. The Investigative Project’s John Rossomando noted that “the MAS convention Ellison will address will hear from radical speakers such as Ali Qaradaghi (alternately...

    MEMRI TV ^ | 12-15-16
    A video celebrating the 29th anniversary of the establishment of Hamas was broadcast on the organization's Al-Aqsa TV channel on December 15. It opens with a young boy - representing the organization in its early years - throwing stones at an Israeli soldier in the 1987 Intifada. As he progresses through various landmarks, including the 2000 Al-Aqsa Intifada and the 2005 Al-Quds Intifada, he turns into a fully grown militant, utilizing more sophisticated weapons, including rifles, missiles, and tunnels. The video culminates with a signpost reading "The Liberation," as the militant takes the final stretch toward the Al-Aqsa Mosque

    Senior Hamas leader and cofounder Mahmoud al-Zahar told supporters Sunday that the terrorist group’s commitment to the destruction of Israel is nonnegotiable, promising to “hold a gun” to the Jewish state’s head as “every inch” of the land belongs to Palestine. “Every single inch of Palestine is just ours. Palestine is not just Gaza and the West Bank; it extends from the River to the Sea,” al-Zahar said during a festival in the Gaza Strip to mark the 29th anniversary of Hamas’ founding, according to the Arabic outlet Al-Resalah. Al-Zahar was referring to the creation of a Palestinian state stretching...

    Monday, December 12, 2016 Trump or Hamas Posted by Daniel Greenfield The Islamic Society of North America was named by the Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in funding Hamas. It was linked to two Hamas funding fronts, the Holy Land Foundation and KindHearts. ISNA’s checks were made payable to the “Palestinian Mujahadeen” or “Holy Warriors” which was a name used by Hamas. ISNA’s co-founder Sami Al-Arian was the local head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Mousa Abu Marzook, a top Hamas official listed by the Treasury Department as a Specially Designated Terrorist, received tens of thousands of dollars from...

    Two-thirds of Palestinians believe a two-state solution to their conflict with Israel is no longer possible, a poll said Tuesday. The share of those who lost faith in such a deal rose from 56 percent in September to 65 percent now, probably due to an acceleration of settlement activity, said the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey research. Most in the international community still back the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, even though a deal appears to be increasingly complicated, in part because of the continued growth of settlements. Gaps between Israeli and Palestinian leaders remain wide, preventing...

    AFP ^ | October 26, 2007
    NEW YORK - The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) challenged in federal court Thursday the US government's refusal to grant a travel visa to Swiss-based Muslim academic Tariq Ramadan. Ramadan, one of the world's leading scholars on Islam, was forced to turn down a tenured position at the University of Notre Dame when the US government revoked his visa in late 2004 on the basis of the so-called "ideological exclusion" provision of the Patriot Act. Washington later dropped its claim, unable to prove that Ramadan had endorsed terrorism. But it banned the academic in September 2006 on grounds he made...

    Keith Ellison, who is campaigning to become Democratic National Committee chairman, met with Hamas fundraiser Mohammed al-Hanooti at a 2009 campaign fundraiser for Virginia House of Delegates candidate Esam Omeish. Ellison was the keynote speaker at the event. Last week Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller reported on the appearance of Ellison at the Omeish campaign event, noting that Omeish had previously called for Palestinians to follow "the jihad way" against Israel. Given that, it's no surprise to find al-Hanooti, who styled himself as "grand mufti" of Washington D.C. and whom FBI documents identify as a top U.S. fundraiser for...

    Saudi-funded dhimmi pseudo-academic Islamic apologist John Esposito working with Hamas-linked CAIR to destroy the freedom of speech, cover up the truth about the global jihad and Islamic supremacism. It's ironic: Islamic supremacist critics sometimes point to my working outside of academia as if it were some indication that what I say isn't true. But in reality, it's the universities that are bought and paid for by Islamic supremacist interests. The only honest work on Islam and jihad is taking place almost completely outside of academia these days. "PJM Exclusive: Georgetown U.

    Monday, November 21, 2016 A Tiny Minority of a Million Muslims in America Posted by Daniel Greenfield The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) is boasting that its voter registration campaign “One Million Voters” across mosques and schools has doubled the number of registered Muslim voters to over a million. The media is cheering this development even though USCMO has a history that makes the KKK look downright sunny. USCMO was in the news last year for its statement denying the Muslim genocide of Armenians and arguing that any recognition of the massacre must also recognize “Muslim suffering.” USCMO's Secretary...

    The weekend report of a German-owned, Ukrainian-chartered ship carrying weapons to Syria should raise questions and alarm bells.  Der Spiegel reported that the Atlantic Cruiser, owned by the German company Bockstiegel, had been chartered by the Ukrainian White Whale company to pick up Iranian-origin cargo in Djibouti.  White Whale said the cargo was "mainly pumps and similar things," according to the German shipping agent.  However, the ship was refused entry for refueling at the port of Limassol, Cyprus after the crew told the Cypriots that the cargo was "weapons and munitions."  The Cruiser tried then to sail for Tartus, Syria,...
