    Counter-Jihad Report ^ | May 1, 2016 | John Guandolo
    How is it that nearly fifteen (15) years after 9/11 none (ie ZERO) of the Islamic advisors to the United States government have shared with our leaders the Quranic concept of abrogation, the definition of “jihad” in sharia (Islamic Law), or the fact sharia obliges jihad until the entire world is under sharia? It is because sharia obliges Muslims to lie to non-Muslims when the goal is obligatory (eg Jihad), and makes it a capital crime for Muslims to teach other Muslims anything about Islam which is not a part of authoritative Islam. This means if American leadership wants to...

    United States Secretary of State John Kerry met in Cairo on Wednesday with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, a day after the Egyptian leader called for a renewal of the Middle East peace process. Even before Sisi raised the issue, Kerry had planned a visit to discuss the Libya and Syria crises and to raise concerns about Egypt's harsh crackdown on dissent, and those issues were discussed in the meeting, according to AFP. But Kerry was also keen to hear more from the Egyptian leader about how he intends to help broker peace between his Israeli and Palestinian neighbors. "He's interested...

The city is the largest in Iraq still under Isis (Daesh) control, but is facing increased pressure from the north, south and east by the Iraqi army, Kurdish Peshmerga forces and US-led Western airstrikes. British special forces, including the Special Air Service (SAS), have been operating in Iraq in conjunction with other western forces to help plot attacks on the militants, with snipers taking out high-level members of the terror group on several occasions.

    In the wake of deadly terror attacks in Brussels, US President Barack Obama stated that it was important to avoid measures that might “stigmatize” Muslims-Americans, but the Republican presidential candidates were quick to disagree. In his weekly media address, President Obama responded to the double attack in Brussels that left 31 dead and approximately 300 wounded. Two of the dead and 14 of the wounded were American citizens. The Islamic State(ISIS) took responsibility for the attack. Obama said that targeting Muslims would be counterproductive”. “[Muslim-Americans are] our most important partners in the nation’s fight against those who would wage violent...

Iraqi officials said it was the prelude to an offensive aimed at recapturing Mosul, the biggest city under Islamic State control and a longstanding priority for the Pentagon. But Kurdish and U.S. military officials described a far more limited operation to clear the Islamic State from villages near Makhmour, about 40 miles southeast of Mosul and around 30...

    The family members of a terrorist who wounded two Border Police officers in an attack in eastern Jerusalem earlier this week were expelled from Jerusalem on Thursday and sent to Palestinian Authority-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria. Following the attack, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan ordered that the legal status of members of the terrorist's family, who lived in the village of Issawiya, be examined. Upon investigation, the police found out that the parents and sisters of the terrorist had applied for family reunification but their application had not yet been approved, and that therefore they did not have resident...

    A Minneapolis man accused of threatening to kill a federal judge and FBI agents accepted a plea deal Tuesday morning to avoid a trial. Prosecutors say 20-year-old Khaalid Abdulkadir posted the threats on Twitter in December after his friend was arrested on ISIS-related terrorism charges. Abdulkadir entered a guilty plea Tuesday to a lesser misdemeanor charge of impeding a federal officer or employee. He was sentenced to three years of probation and two years of electronic monitoring.

    Fully 116 members of the GOP’s national security community, many of them veterans of Bush administrations, have signed an open letter threatening that, if Trump is nominated, they will all desert, and some will defect – to Hillary Clinton! “Hillary is the lesser evil, by a large margin,” says Eliot Cohen of the Bush II State Department. According to Politico’s Michael Crowley, Cohen helped line up neocons to sign the “Dump-Trump” manifesto. snip Our Principles PAC, backed by Nebraska’s billionaire Ricketts family, has poured millions into trashing Trump. American Future Fund is dumping $1.75 million in Florida this week; Club...

    Most people want to know: Have I turned into a "Jesus nut" after leaving Connecticut for Texas five years ago? Not really - but I have some keener observations about US culture, sharpened by living in Texas. Skip the rest if you don't have an open mind. Most of the comments on this forum about refugees going home out of disgust with the West are amusing, esp from my perspective of being an American with a college education, successful career & loving, stable family. All of these things are granted by God through his means and a lifetime of hard...

    The weekend strike using both manned and unmanned drone aircraft targeted al Shabaab's "Raso" training camp, a facility about 120 miles north of the capital Mogadishu, the Pentagon said. The U.S. military said it had been monitoring the camp for several weeks before the strike and had gathered intelligence, including about an imminent threat posed by the trainees. "We know they were going to be departing the camp and that they posed an imminent threat to U.S. and to Amisom, African Union mission in Somalia forces, that are in Somalia," said Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis.

    Flight Student Facing Deportation Over Trump Post Russ Niles A commercial flight school student from Egypt is in jail in California after he posted what immigration officials perceive as a threat to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. It appears the Immigration and Customs Enforcement department is intent on deporting Emadeldin Elsayed for the Facebook post even though there was not enough evidence to charge him criminally. In the post, Elsayed said he would be willing to go to prison for life for killing Trump and the world would thank him for it. Elsayed and his lawyer Hani Bushra both have...

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz secured the support not only of evangelical Christians but also of Jewish leaders ahead of Super Tuesday, the electoral event in various states across America that could make or break the fortunes of the five remaining candidates for the Republican presidential nomination.

More Jewish leaders endorsed Cruz over the weekend, raising his number of influential Jewish political supporters to more than three dozen, according to the senator's campaign. "Since the day we announced our...

    We all know the president wants to close Guantanamo Bay, the plans for which how that will be achieved are expected this month, but what happens if we continue to nab more Islamic extremists? For now, the interrogations occur on naval ships and the prisoners are transferred to other nations' legal systems, or they're brought here to be tried in our court system. That's including military commissions, according to the Associated Press. Yet, this lack of clarity on what to do if we see an uptick in captured terrorists has legal wonks and national security officials unnerved: "If you're going to...
