    FBI National Domestic Threat Assessment Omits Islamist Terrorism Internal report labels white supremacists, black separatists, militias, abortion extremists main domestic extremists BY: Bill Gertz August 29, 2014 5:00 am The FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans. Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements—none...

    Iranian military leaders have openly boasted that they have begun to send weapons to Palestinian Arab terrorists in Judea and Samaria and elsewhere in the region, the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday. The report quoted a top Iranian military commander who confirmed that weapon shipments to Judea and Samaria have already begun and that more will be sent to other “Palestinian resistance groups.” “Arming the West Bank has started and weapons will be supplied to the people of this region,” Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the commander of Iran’s volunteer Basij force, told the state-run Fars news agency on Wednesday....
  • West Point Report: Obama Watched Islamic State Grow

    War On Terror: A new report from the West Point counterterrorism center says the administration ignored warning signs as the Islamic State grew and trained over a four-year period paralleling our withdrawal from Iraq. As President Obama dithers about whether to strike the Islamic State's sanctuary in Syria, a report by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point shows how we got to this point. Obama simply overlooked the "JV" team until it was ready for terrorism's Pro Bowl. Instead, he was focused on getting us out of Iraq and creating a power vacuum that the terrorist group was all...

Netanyahu inexplicably accepted the ceasefire even though a majority of the cabinet members would have wholeheartedly voted no, Danon explained Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "We are disappointed … You fight with the Hamas you don't negotiate with the Hamas. You don't negotiate with a terrorist organization," Danon said. "We should fight against the Hamas.

    Obama became president on January 20, 2009, the war in Iraq was essentially won. The al Qaeda-backed insurgency was reduced to smoldering embers. George W. Bush’s surge had succeeded. Safely behind bars at the time was Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, an al Qaeda-linked point man who was imprisoned at Camp Bucca in Iraq, after being captured by U.S. forces in 2005. However, the Obama administration decided to shut down the Bucca prison camp and hand over its prisoners to the Iraqi government, including Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, in 2009. The Iraqi government later released him. Al Baghadi boasted to the...

Now, flush with that victory, they’re moving in for the kill: any law enforcement official who may have heard the truth must be reeducated. Chairman Mao would be dead chuffed, but the fact is that even if Obama accepts and implements this demand, and he probably...

It's not only coming to the U.S.; it's already here. Slain journalist James Foley studied his craft in the Chicago area, earning a master's degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. For a time he was a teacher in the Cook County Jail boot camp program. He was familiar with the streets of Chicago. So, apparently, is the Islamic State that beheaded him.

Who could believe in big government living under the fiasco of this man’s presidency? And I am certainly not alone. Libertarianism, if we are to believe none other than The New York Times, has become quite chic. But paradoxically, during this same time frame, it has become perhaps even more evident that one of the apparent tenets of libertarianism — a kind of neo-isolationism — is, well, to put it bluntly, insane.

    For many, the British accent of the Islamist who executed American journalist James Foley was almost as shocking as the barbaric murder itself. In the days that follow, critics of American foreign policy will assert that the Islamic State’s audacious act was merely a symptom of “blowback,” the unintended consequence of Western military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq. But above all, they will relentlessly stress that the participation of a European Muslim in foreign jihad marks a new development in domestic radicalization. And they will be deeply mistaken. It is easy to write off the Islamization of European Muslims as...

Meanwhile Iraqi Golden Brigade commandos liberated parts of Tikrit from the Islamists. But the militants counterattacked—and that drew Iran into the fighting. In a move that could have far-reaching consequences, Tehran has sent tanks into northern Iraq.

We can't call ISIS "evil." We also shouldn't call them a "cancer," or "savage," or "barbaric." Oh, and the fact that George W.

The rest of the country was put on edge. That was until the even gorier spectacle of the beheading of an American journalist, James Foley, by an Islamic State executioner in Syria, hit the news waves.

ISIS is now thought to be the world's richest terrorist organization, with an estimated $2 billion in funds.This makes ISIS wealthier than several sovereign countries, including Nauru, Tonga, and the Marshall Islands."They probably have some wealthy donors in those countries, but they are seizing hundreds of millions in Iraq, and...

Surprisingly, though, ISIS militants are following developments in the St. Louis suburb, and some of them would rather focus on that. According to interviews and social media, members of the group and sympathizers with its jihadist ideology are closely tracking the events in the St. Louis suburb, where protesters and police have clashed. In it, they see opportunity. Partly, the focus is strategic: Officers in Ferguson have...

    The Islamic Jihad Conquest Formula By Matthew Bracken August, 2014 Mohammed’s unchanging formula for conquest is time-proven; variations were also used in history by the invading Mongol hordes among others. Emissaries ride forward of their advancing armies, offering to spare the lives of the targeted population in return for their unconditional surrender and explicit submission to their new rulers. In the Islamic context this submission is exemplified by the fresh converts repeating the Shahada prayer before Muslim witnesses. There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger. The Shahada prayer is the first of the Five Pillars of...

The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive. Please, try to understand us. Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here. You must consider again our reality in the Middle East, because you are welcoming in your countries an ever growing number of Muslims. Also you are in danger. You must take strong and courageous decisions, even at the...

    Why a Belgian Chef Is Joining ISIS: 'Fighting Against Americans' BY AMMAR CHEIKH OMAR After two years of fighting alongside al Qaeda-backed militants in Syria, Abu Saif thought he was done with jihad and ready to return to his “normal” life as a chef in Belgium. But everything changed when Sunni militants swept through northern Iraq and brought their brand of holy war to a global audience. The 31-year-old cut ties with his old fighting force and put in with the rival Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), setting out for the militants’ stronghold of Raqqa and then, he...

    US drones fired on an Islamic extremist mortar position in northern Iraq on Tuesday to protect Kurdish forces battling to rescue a group of Yazidi civilian refugees, the military said. The so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), the region's most powerful Sunni jihadist group, has driven thousands of members of the Yazidi minority from their homes and is besieging the refugees on an exposed mountain. Last week, the United States launched an air campaign to break the siege of Mount Sinjar, bring humanitarian relief to the Yazidis and support Kurdish troops protecting their capital Arbil. "US military...

    While President Obama works on his golf swing, British Prime Minister David Cameron has cut his summer holiday short to preside over an emergency crisis meeting about the Islamic State in Iraq. Perhaps Cameron's mind has been concentrated by stories like this one - a transcript of an interview with a British-born jihadist on the popular teenage chat-room Ask.fm. Here are some of the questions British kids were dying to ask of this exciting role model - together with his somewhat terrifying answers. Q: Are there gun stores there?A: Yep, u can buy loads of stuff. Q: Are bulletproof vests...

    A civil servant at the justice ministry who said terror group ISIS does not exist and is a zionist plot has been suspended. Yasmina Haifi, project leader at the National Cyber Security Centre, said on Wednesday morning on Twitter that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam and is a plot by zionists to blacken the name of Islam. The outcry that followed did not look as if it would make her take back the words. However, she later deleted the tweet saying: 'Realise the political sensitivity in relation to my work. This was never my intention.' On Wednesday afternoon,...

    The Islamic State is omnipresent on Twitter these days, so it was curious to see the jihadists weighing in on the death of Robin Williams just as the rest of the world was last night.However, they weren’t as kind to the kafir, heavily citing the above hilarious sketch he did about jihad and the whole idea of getting 72 virgins upon martyrdom. For those who talk about the khanzer Robin Williams, you need to double check your Al-Wala’ Wal Bara’ aqeeda #ISIS http://t.co/jv09gajduT— Abu Bakr Al-Janabi (@Alansarialjanab) August 12, 2014   Those of you who say “RIP” to #RobinWilliams check...

    In a newly translated interview, Hamas spokesperson Husam Badran declared that his terror organization is holding truce talks in Cairo with Israel being held “at gunpoint” to accept the group’s demands. Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated the interview from Al Jazeera, which is sponsored by Qatar, a key provider of Hamas funds. In it, Badran relates being asked in jail in 2002 by then-deputy head of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) whether Hamas will ever negotiate with Israel. “I said to him outright: If we ever negotiate with you, whether directly or indirectly, we will do so...

    Making a faithful confession The world is starting to perk up its ears. Reports of Christians fleeing cities in Iraq; pictures of Islamic militants marking the doors of the faithful as a sign that they must leave or be killed; stories of men being killed, women raped, children beheaded: All are now in the news … and all are for the sake of Christ. We mourn. We pray. And yet we wonder, “What can I do? What does this matter to me?” * Repent. There may well come a day when we face the same suffering that has befallen the...
