    Reuters ^ | Oct 7, 6:36 PM EDT
    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) -- Australia's prime minister says his government will soon introduce a system for banning foreign "hate preachers" from entering the country. Prime Minister Tony Abbott also told Sydney Radio 2GB on Wednesday that he will attempt to outlaw the radical Islamic group Hizb-ut-Tahrir under proposed tougher counterterror laws. Abbott says he is angry and frustrated that under existing counterterror laws his government cannot outlaw Hizb-ut-Tahrir, which is banned by several other countries. But under amendments before the Parliament, groups that promote terrorism would be banned. The current prohibition only applies to groups that engage in terrorism. Abbott...

    There have been questions about Mohamed Elibiary’s true allegiances for years. He was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas titled “A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary.” The visionary in question was none other than the founding father of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini.When I questioned him about his appearance at such a conference, Elibiary claimed that he hadn’t known what kind of conference it was going to be, although he didn’t explain why he went ahead and appeared there anyway once he found out. Among those who found this explanation...

    Following the prayer in the Moscow Cathedral Mosque, during his visit in February 2010, Hamas leader Khaled Masha’al admitted that in the Council of Muftis of Russia it felt like home. While the statement probably pleased the Russian leaders, in reality these words should have alerted them. Whether it was Mashaal’s intention or not, this acknowledgment could be perceived as a prophecy: the dawn of Islamic fundamentalism which illuminates the future of the northern superpower. Islam is the second largest religious denomination in Russia after the Orthodox Church. According to the official census there are about 15 million Muslims (10...

    Hizb ut-Tahrir is an international Islamic organization that openly calls for restoration of the caliphate -- that is, the political union of Muslims worldwide in a single Sharia state ruled by the caliph. This means that the group is dedicated to subverting and destroying all governments not ruled by Islamic law, and as such it is banned in many countries. But not in the U.S., which has never shown any awareness on an official level of non-violent efforts to impose Sharia. They're once again coming to the Chicago area to hold their Caliphate Conference: it will be held on June...

Russia's coup against the Bakiyev government which took power in the Tulip Revolution leveraged Uzbek separatists in the Osh Province to suppress Kyrgiz nationalist supporters of Bakiyev. Russia had been trying for a while to force out Manas Air Base, a US air force base that serves as a vital link to US forces in Afghanistan. Russia tolerated Bakiyev, so long as he was against the US base. But once Bakiyev...

In a study published Monday, the center - quoting extensively from the statements and writings of HT leaders and party organs – shows that the group actually advocates hijacking planes and other forms of jihadist violence in order to annex all Muslim-majority nations and colonize non-Muslim-majority ones. Representatives of HT, which seeks to establish a global Islamic state (a Caliphate), have long claimed that they oppose violence.

    SNIPPET: "Dalia Mogahed, a member of President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, joined a representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) for a television interview in Great Britain on Sunday.

GMBDR described the program as "a show presented by members of Hizb ut-Tahrir" featuring Nawaz "in her capacity as spokesperson" for the group.

"There has been a sharp rise in the number of supporters of the Hizb ut-Tahrir extremist organization in the system of the Justice Ministry's Chief Penitentiary Institutions Department," Malikov, who is director of Kyrgyzstan's analytical and research center of religion, law and politics, told journalists on Wednesday."...

    SNIPPET: "Hizb ut Tahrir (HT) has made inroads in other parts of the world by framing its boilerplate doctrine in a modern context. HT plays on the frustrations of Muslim populations in order to position itself as the vanguard of the aggrieved. Its blanket solution to all social, political, and economic problems is the establishment of an Islamic government, ruled by a Caliph, and run according to the laws of Shariah. Much of HT’s strategic success in growing its support base and core membership can be attributed to its ability to control public dialogue through its aggressive production of leaflets...

    Forget 9/11. Forget the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Forget the fatwahs of al Qaeda and its sister organizations. Forget the scores of attacks that have occurred or been thwarted on American soil during the past eight years. Americans, according to a Gallup poll, are less concerned about terrorism than at any point since August 2004 – with only 36% saying they are very or somewhat worried that they or a family member will become a victim of a terrorist attack. Americans’ collective level of worry about terrorism is the lowest recorded since August 2004 (34%) and down...
  • Anti-Semitic, Anti-Christian Propaganda on Display at Caliphate Conference

    SNIPPET: "While Hizb ut-Tahrir, a pro-jihadist group which met openly near Chicago last weekend, is surprisingly candid about its desire to re-establish an Islamic Caliphate, literature available at its conference shows the group also views Christians and Jews as untrustworthy enemies of God. More than a dozen issues of a Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) newsletter called The Shield were obtained from the conference by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. The publication repeatedly condemns interfaith "outreach initiatives" and shows HT believes in the death penalty for Muslims who leave the faith. HT pushes a radical ideology that is similar to Al Qaeda,...

    Sorry for the radio silence this week — I'm knuckled down on a book deadline. But I came up for air to talk to our buddy Guy Benson about the Islamist group Hizb-ut-Tahrir, which wants to supplant our Constitution with shariah. The group, one of whose alumni is KSM, had its first national convention in Chicago last week — called "Fall of Capitalism, Rise of Islam."

    Later this month, the members of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Canada will host a conference in Mississauga to discuss the establishment of a Caliphate. The conference announcement acknowledges the presence of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Canada for the first time publicly; indicating that, like Hizb ut-Tahrir America (HTA), it may have recently transitioned into the second stage of its three-stage strategy. (For more on the method of Hizb ut-Tahrir, please see my previous article, linked here). Branches of Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) worldwide are hosting Khilafah conferences this month as part its "Rajab Campaign." Rajab, on the Islamic calendar, is the month of...

    Like a Wolf Overtaking His Prey - Radical Islam on Our Doorstep Have you seen the promotional material for the "Khilafah Conference USA 2009: Hizb ut-Tahrir America (HTA)" symposium that was just held in Oak Lawn, Illinois? It's a melding of "something wicked this way comes" with a dash of "The Walton's" and good ol' American family values. On Monday, July 20, 2009, Janet Levy alerted us to the conference having been held the day before in a suburb of Chicago, President Barack Hussein Obama's old stomping grounds (is there a connection here? Hmmm). It was time to take a...

    Imam Promises to Fight "Until Islam Becomes Victorious or We Die in the Attempt" Oak Lawn, Illinois - Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), the international movement to re-establish an international Islamic state ­ or Caliphate - kicked off a new campaign to win American recruits Sunday afternoon in this Chicago suburb. Nearly 300 people packed the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Hotel for its Khalifah Conference on "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam" to listen to HT ideologues blame capitalism for World War I and World War II; the U.S. subprime mortgage meltdown; the current violence in Iraq and...

    Hizb ut-Tahrir--an admitted Al-Qaeda affiliate, Islamist Hate-and-Destroy-the-USA-and-Capitalism Conference Under any US President--I presume even Franklin D. Roosevelt--the sworn enemy of the United States of America would not be allowed (let alone welcomed with open arms) into the country. But, under Dictator Obama’s rule, that’s what is now occurring and encouraged terrorist groups are coming out into the open--with no reprisals whatsoever. The terrorist group Hizb ut-Tahrir--an admitted Al-Qaeda affiliate--is actually holding an Islamist Hate-and-Destroy-the-USA-and-Capitalism Conference at a Hilton Hotel just outside of Chicago. Note: Looks as if they’re joining their brother Obama in the same quest. Remember that Chicago was...
