It is yet unclear whether the “Tunisian brother” who carried out the truck-ramming massacre in Nice on Thursday was commissioned by the Islamic State (IS) leadership or acted on his own, a top Salafi jihadist leader allied with IS ideology in the Gaza Strip told Breitbart Jerusalem.

Abu Alayna Al-Ansari, an IS loyalist, said he believes the attack was a “classic lone wolf” operation, inspired by the jihadi Abu Mohammad al-Julani, the IS spokesperson, who called upon young Muslims from around the world to carry out attacks such as Thursday night’s.

Ansari is a well-known Gazan Salafist jihadist allied with Islamic State ideology.  In previous interviews, Ansari seemed to be speaking as an actual IS member, repeatedly using the pronoun “we” when referring to IS and even seemingly making declarations on behalf of IS.

IS loyalists reportedly celebrated the attack on social media. The perpetrator was identified to the news media by French police sources as 31-year-old Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a Tunisian who last visited France two years ago.

Ansari said in his estimation IS will only claim responsibility if it actually commissioned the attack.

“We’ve seen that some weeks ago, in France, when the Mujahed, the hero Abdullah Alaroussi killed the French policeman and his lover after pledging allegiance to IS and to the Caliph Abu Bakr al Baghdadi,” he said. “And also in the case of Orlando, with the Mujahed Omar Mateen, the organization claimed responsibility only after it was clear that the perpetrator had pledged allegiance to IS and its leader.

“These are two cases that attacks were carried out by Mujahedeen with whom the organization was familiar. It did not claim responsibility for other attacks that were carried out in the West, even when it was clear that they were inspired by IS’ ideology and carried out by its sympathizers.”

“An attack against the French while they’re celebrating their national day sends an important message to the infidels, whereby they will not enjoy peace so long as their governments commit crimes against Muslims around the world,” he added.

French President Francois Hollande’s pledge to continue fighting against IS “indicates that he failed to get the message, and that it is incumbent upon our brothers to continue sending him similar messages, in their own way, until he gets it.

“Hollande, in effect, invited the Mujahedeen to carry out a similar attack to the one that rocked Paris a few months ago. He can rest assured it will happen. Our brothers are currently working on the next major attack in France and the other terrorist infidel states in the world.”

Ansari dismissed any possible link between the attacks and recent IS setbacks in Syria and Iraq.

“For the leadership of the Islamic State, control of territory is not nearly as important as continuing to develop the operational skills of our brothers in the infidel states, to carry out attacks in America which is the number one terrorist and anti-Muslim state in the world, and the other infidel states, in retaliation against the crimes they commit against Muslims,” he said.

Asked how he could justify the killing of women and children, as well as French Muslims, Ansari said: “Islam opposes the killing of women and children, but these families, by virtue of taking part in the French national celebration, express their support for their government’s policy to send thousands of troops to kill Muslims in central Africa, in Iraq, Syria and other places.

“So I don’t understand why people are taken aback when they are hit by our brothers who retaliate against their governments’ crimes. Who said that the lives of these women and children are worth more than the lives of ours? Why should they enjoy peace and security when our women and children don’t? These governments who send troops to fight against terror are the representatives of terror in the world.”

Regarding potential Muslim victims in Nice, Ansari said: “Our belief says that what Muslims felt in their hearts when they died is what counts. If they celebrated, their death was their punishment. And if they were passersby, they are martyrs. However the most important thing is that the Crusader, infidel countries know that there’s a price for the killing of Muslims by the US, France, Germany and other countries. These countries will continue to pay a price for their participation in crimes against Muslims.”

28 Dead in Bangladesh as Jihadis Tortured, Killed Those Who Couldn’t Recite Quran

The Associated Press

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — The hostages were given a test: recite verses from the Quran, or be punished, according to a witness. Those who passed were allowed to eat. Those who failed were slain.

The dramatic, 10-hour hostage crisis that gripped the Bangladesh’s diplomatic zone ended Saturday morning with at least 28 dead, including six of the attackers, as commandos raided the popular restaurant where heavily armed attackers were holding dozens of foreigners and Bangladeshis prisoner while hurling bombs and engaging in a gunbattle with security forces.

The attack marks an escalation in militant violence that has hit the traditionally moderate Muslim-majority nation with increasing frequency in recent months, with the extremists demanding the secular government revert to Islamic rule. Most previous attacks have involved machete-wielding men singling out individual activists, foreigners and religious minorities.

But Friday night’s attack was different, more coordinated, with the attackers brandishing assault rifles as they shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) and stormed the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka’s Gulshan area while dozens of foreigners and Bangladeshis were dining out during the Ramadan holy month.

The gunmen, initially firing blanks, ordered restaurant workers to switch off the lights, and they draped black cloths over closed-circuit cameras, according to a survivor, who spoke with local TV channel ATN News. He and others, including kitchen staff, managed to escape by running to the rooftop or out the back door.

But about 35 were trapped inside, their fate depending on whether they could prove themselves to be Muslims, according to the father of a Bangladeshi businessman who was rescued Saturday morning along with his family.

“The gunmen asked everyone inside to recite from the Quran,” the Islamic holy book, according to Rezaul Karim, describing what his son, Hasnat, had witnessed inside. “Those who recited were spared. The gunmen even gave them meals last night.”

The others, he said, “were tortured.”

Detectives were questioning his son and his family along with other survivors as part of the investigation on Saturday, as scattered details of the siege emerged. Authorities were also interrogating one of the attackers captured by commandos in dramatic morning rescue.

It was not immediately clear whether the attackers had a specific goal, and Bangladesh authorities would not say if they had made any demands.

The 20 hostages killed included nine Italians, seven Japanese, three Bangladeshis and one Indian, government sources said, as details of the bloodshed began trickling from other capitals worldwide.

“All the hostages were killed last night. The terrorists used sharp weapons to kill them brutally,” said Brig. Gen. Nayeem Ashfaq Chowdhury of the Army Headquarters in a news conference Saturday night.

Another two Bangladeshi police officers also died from injuries sustained while exchanging gunfire with the attackers Friday night.

In New Delhi, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said she was “extremely pained to share that the terrorists have killed Tarushi, an Indian girl who was taken hostage in the terror attack in Dhaka.”

Eighteen-year-old Tarushi Jain had been on holiday from her studies at the University of California, Berkeley. She was in Dhaka visiting her father, who has run a garment business in the country for the past 15 or 20 years, according to Indian government sources, who were not authorized to speak with media and so requested anonymity.

But another Indian citizen, a doctor who spoke Bengali and could pass himself as a Bangladeshi, was released unharmed, a government source said.

A Bangladeshi woman Ishrat Akhond was also among the dead. She had been holding a dinner meeting with Italian businessmen when she was killed in the siege, according to three of her friends who did want to be named for fear of reprisal. One told the AP, “she was such a loving person, such a good friend.” Others posted photographs and messages of disbelief and condolences on her Facebook page.

Another victim, Abinta Kabir, had been a student at Emory University’s campus in Oxford, Georgia, and was visiting family and friends on a vacation, the university said in an email to employees.

Ten of 26 people who were wounded Friday night when the militants opened fire were in critical condition, and six were on life support, according to hospital staff. The injuries ranged from broken bones to gunshot wounds. Most of them were police officers, but one was a civilian. Hospital staff refused to provide any details of their condition on Saturday.

In the end, paramilitary troops managed to rescue 13 hostages, including one Argentine, two Sri Lankans and two Bangladeshis, according to Lt. Col. Tuhin Mohammad Masud, commander of the Rapid Action Battalion that conducted the rescue operations. Japan’s government said one Japanese hostage was also rescued with a gunshot wound.

The commandos launched the morning rescue operation after the attackers did not respond to calls for negotiation, Masud said. As the troops, wearing flak jackets and helmets and armed with automatic weapons, moved in on the restaurant at 7:40 a.m., local TV stations reported the sound of gunfire and explosions. At least seven armored vehicles and ambulances stood by.

The commandos killed six of the attackers and recovered explosive devices and sharp weapons from the scene, said Chowdhury of the Army Headquarters.

“Because of the effort of the joint force, the terrorists could not flee,” Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said in a nationally televised speech, vowing to fight militant attacks in the country and urged people to come forward.

The audacious attack came during Ramadan, when devout Muslims fast during the day and eat after dark. Many left the city of more than 10 million people for a nine-day public holiday with families to celebrate Eid al Fitr festival with families.

“Anyone who believes in religion cannot do such an act,” Hasina said. “They do not have any religion, their only religion is terrorism.”

She announced two days of national mourning for the dead.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility, saying it targeted the citizens of “Crusader countries” in the attack. The statement was circulated by IS supporters on the Telegram messaging service and resembled previous statements by IS. It was not immediately clear if its leadership in Syria and Iraq was involved in the planning the attack. The Amaq news agency, affiliated with IS, also posted photos purportedly showing hostages’ bodies, though the authenticity of the images could not be confirmed.

The government did not directly comment on the IS claim but has denied in the past that the extremist group has a presence in Bangladesh. Hasina’s government instead has accused her political enemies of orchestrating the violence in order to destabilize the nation – which the opposition denies.

The government has cracked down on domestic radical Islamists by making scores of arrests. It has blamed local terrorists and opposition political parties – especially the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party and its Islamist ally Jamaat-e-Islami.

But the attacks have continued, with about two dozen atheist writers, publishers, members of religious minorities, social activists and foreign aid workers slain since 2013. Earlier on Friday, a Hindu temple worker was hacked to death by at least three assailants in southwest Bangladesh. IS and and al-Qaida affiliates have claimed responsibility for many of those attacks.

The escalating violence leading up to the unprecedented hostage crisis has raised fears that religious extremists are gaining a foothold in the country, despite its traditions of secularism and tolerance. That the attackers targeted a popular restaurant in the heart of the diplomatic quarter of Bangladesh’s capital signaled a change in tactics. The restaurant overlooking a lake serves Spanish food and is patronized by residents of Gulshan, an affluent neighborhood where most of the foreign embassies are located.

In Washington, a White House official said President Barack Obama was briefed on the attack by his chief counterterrorism adviser Lisa Monaco. The president asked to be kept informed as the situation develops, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the president’s meetings.

State Department spokesman John Kirby says the U.S. had offered its assistance to bring those responsible to justice.

Daniel Horowitz: There Is a Fifth Column in the American Government

Daniel Horowitz: There Is a Fifth Column in the American Government

Asked by Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon if there is “essentially a fifth column in the national security and homeland security apparatus of the United States,” Daniel Horowitz, senior editor at Conservative Review, said, “Oh yeah, this is nothing new. It started pretty much in the second term of the Bush administration.”

Horowitz continued:

There’s something called CVE, Countering Violent Extremism. It’s not just an Orwellian term to expunge any mention of Islamic terror and make it about a kind of generic extremism, including so called Right Wing extremism; it’s a term of art. It is a very specific term concocted by the Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR. They have successfully introduced this lexicon in our DHS [Department of Homeland Security]. These people are most commonly found in the Homeland Security Advisory Council, as well as the civil rights and civil liberties division of DHS.

Breitbart News recently highlighted the issue with a piece drawn from a Horowitz item at Conservative Review, “The GOP’s Muslim Brotherhood-Inspired Post-Orlando Agenda”:

Next, Republicans could bring legislation to the House and Senate floors, finally designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, thereby freeing up law enforcement do [sic] expunge them from our government and go after the mosques controlled by Brotherhood front groups. This would cut to the foundation of the radicalization problem inside Muslim communities in this country. It would also remove the Muslim Brotherhood foxes guarding the hen house within our sensitive counterterrorism advisory boards for the FBI and DHS. The bill designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terror group [H.R. 3892] already passed the House Judiciary Committee in February.

But no. Republicans will have none of that. Instead, Republicans plan to package a bunch of nothingburger bills that, in best-case scenario, completely distracts from the core problem, and in the worst case, actually promotes the Muslim Brotherhood agenda.

Horowitz’s interview on Breitbart News Daily Tuesday also highlighted:

If you had a situation where there’s rampant, ubiquitous arson all over the country, and you find out it’s the firefighters committing the arson, and they’re everywhere, and they’re being cheered on, and then a group of people who are cheering them on successfully say, “You know what: we need to ban fire in your  kitchen.” And they successfully make the narrative all that. This type of fire. What about fire for someone who’s mentally ill? And nobody is talking about the issues. We literally had a debate all of yesterday, and we’re going to have it all of today, probably for the rest of the week, about how much … how many people do we want to ban from getting a gun. Meanwhile, we are bringing the problem to our shores. A) Through immigration. Then once they’re here – and some of them have been here for several decades – we have the Muslim Brotherhood radicalizing them, writing their textbooks in their schools, obviously sympathizing with the terrorists, making these guys want to identify with them in the mosques and all the community centers. And then most importantly, or most egregiously, they are in every level of our counterterrorism and Homeland Security apparatus: DHS, FBI, State Department.

Republicans, as their response to Orlando, they crafted legislation using the term Countering Violent Extremism, giving them more resources to further the goals and objectives of CVE. So they basically empowered Obama and legitimized this program.

After 9/11, Saudis Had Huma Abedin-Connected Group Removed from Terror List

Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin has deep and, so far, unexplained connections to a Saudi Arabian man who ran a Saudi organization that U.S. intelligence connected to terror funding during both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush’s administrations, but escaped scrutiny after pressure from the Saudi Arabian government.

Details about the group called the Muslim World League were originally published in 2001 and 2004, but their significance was not fully clear until recently, with Huma Abedin acting as co-chairwoman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Although Abedin has made headlines in recent months for her central role in the Hillary Clinton email server scandal, as well as a Showtime movie that highlights her husband, disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s failed New York mayoral bid, Abedin has managed to avoid any serious scrutiny from the press. However, given the clear danger posed by Islamist terror groups like the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), the newly unearthed material about Huma Abedin’s direct connection to a man who ran a group that U.S. intelligence suspected of direct involvement with terrorism raises deeply troubling questions.

The man, Abdullah Omar Naseef, and his connection to both Huma Abedin and her family, has already been verified by mainstream media such as Vanity Fair, which described Naseef “as a high-ranking insider in the Saudi government” who “sits on the king’s Shura Council” and as “the patron” of a journal run by Abedin’s family for which Abedin herself worked. The article gives more detail and Abedin and Naseef:

Abedin was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is Pakistani; her late father, Syed Zainul Abedin, was Indian. Both were intellectuals. When Abedin was two years old, the family moved to Jidda, Saudi Arabia, where, with the backing of Abdullah Omar Nasseef, then the president of King Abdulaziz University, her father founded the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, a think tank, and became the first editor of its Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.

Now, for the first time, Breitbart News reveals that reports from mainstream media sources at the time show that intelligence officials believed for years that Naseef’s Muslim World League was connected to terror, but failed to inform the public of the connections due to pressure from Saudi Arabia.

As Newsweek reported less than a month after the 9/11 attack (emphasis added):

The Saudis have probably done more to penetrate Al Qaeda than any other foreign intelligence service, but Al Qaeda in turn has penetrated the Saudi regime. Two interrelated global charities directly financed by the Saudi government–the International Islamic Relief Organization and the Muslim World League –have been used by bin Laden to finance his operations. The organizations were left off the list of groups sanctioned by the United States last week, U.S. officials hinted to NEWSWEEK, in order to avoid embarrassing the Saudi government.

This inaction against Naseef’s Muslim World League was confirmed in a 2004 story by Harper’s. They wrote:

In other cases, the Bush Administration made a conscious decision not to pursue major Saudi conduits for terrorist funding. The clearest example involves two ostensible charities that are long known to have funneled money to Al Qaeda–the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) and the Muslim World League (MWL). Both are financed directly by the Saudi government. MWL is an evangelical organization that was created to help spread Wahhabism, the Saudi brand of Islamic fundamentalism; IIRO is a humanitarian relief organization that operates primarily in Muslim countries.

Harper’s also noted that during the Clinton administration the Central Intelligence Agency issued a report about Naseef’s Muslim World League and the International Islamic Relief Organization.

Consider the timing: in the fall of 1996, Huma Abedin began working in the White House. Harper’s wrote:

Yet a 1996 CIA report alleged that IIRO helped to fund six militant training camps in Afghanistan, and noted that the former head of the group’s Philippines office–Osama bin Laden’s brother-in-law–had been linked to plots to “target the pope and U.S. airlines.”

Now consider this: two years later, Huma Abedin was now embedded in the White House as one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides. We know this because Hillary Clinton spoke of her at events like the annual Ramadan dinner that was initiated by the Clintons, as previously reported by Breitbart News.

While Huma Abedin had direct access to the White House and Hillary Clinton, her family patron’s Muslim World League was thought to be involved in terrorism against the United States. According to Harper’s:

U.S. intelligence officials also believe that MWL employees were involved in the 1998 bombing of two U.S. embassies in Africa. Although both IIRO and MWL were known to have funded Al Qaeda, U.S. government sources indicated to Newsweek in October 2001 that the Bush Administration left the two organizations off the list of designated terrorist groups in order to spare the Saudi government from embarrassment.

Defenders of Clinton and Abedin have attempted to spin concerns about Abedin’s disturbing connections as a crazed right-wing conspiracy theory, but the facts are coming out, and with America focused on the presidential race and terrorism, it is just a matter of time before the truth comes out.

Ramadan: Islamic State Urges Lone Wolf Attacks in U.S., Europe

Ramadan Violence: Islamic State Urges Lone Wolf Attacks in U.S., Europe

The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), in a new propaganda message, is urging supporters to carry out violent attacks against civilian and military targets within the United States and Europe during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins in early June.

“Ramadan, the month of conquest and jihad. Get prepared, be ready … to make it a month of calamity everywhere for the non-believers … especially for the fighters and supporters of the Caliphate in Europe and America,” said the audio message, urging ISIS sympathizers in the West to attack if they cannot travel to the group’s self-declared Caliphate in Syria and Iraq, Reuters reports.

“The smallest action you do in their heartland is better and more enduring to us than what you would if you were with us. If one of you hoped to reach the Islamic State, we wish we were in your place to punish the Crusaders day and night,” the message reportedly added.

ISIS encouraged its supporters to launch lone wolf attacks “to win the great award of martyrdom.”

The authenticity of the 31-minute message, purporting to come from Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, an ISIS spokesman, and posted on Twitter over the weekend by alleged supporters and opponents of the group alike, could not be verified, notes Reuters.



According to the International Business Times (IBTimes), the message was officially released on May 21 by al-Furqan, identified as the jihadist group’s media arm.

During the month of Ramadan, Islam adherents abstain from eating, drinking, smoking, having sex, and other physical needs each day, starting from before the break of dawn until sunset.

ISIS has imposed strict Islamic law, sharia, in the large swathes of Iraq and Syria it still controls, which includes a rigorous observance of Ramadan.

The day that marks the birth of the United States, the 4th of July, will fall on Ramadan. In addition, the holy month will take place during the summer, the season for multiple music festivals and concerts across the nation.

Various presidential campaign and election events will also take place during Ramadan 2016, as June will mark the end of the contentious primaries and caucuses held by the states and parties during which ISIS and Islam were debated.

“The period of Ramadan, which carries on into July, happens to coincide with a number of big events in Europe,” including the Euro Soccer Cup, Wimbledon, the Glastonbury Festival, and the London Gay Pride Parade, notes IBTimes.

Millions of Muslims in the United States and Europe are expected to participate in Ramadan.

In June 2015, as ISIS commemorated the first anniversary of the establishment of its Caliphate, the jihadist group made similar “Ramadan calls for violence,” also via an audio message by its spokesman al-Adnani.

ISIS was linked to various terrorist attacks after the message, encouraging followers to make Ramadan a time of “calamity for the infidels,” was released, noted Fox News.

Between then and now, the jihadist group has been associated with several deadly attacks in the United States and Europe.

FBI Director James Comey recently told reporters that the number of Americans who had attempted or successfully traveled to the Middle East to join ISIS had recently dropped dramatically from up to ten per month to an average of one.

In part, the decline has been attributed to ISIS’ recent focus on encouraging its supporters to carry out lone wolf attacks in their homeland.

Air Force Maj. Gen. Peter Gersten, a top deputy commander for the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS, said in late April that the number of overall foreign fighters making the trip to join ISIS in Iraq and Syria had dropped by 90 percent within the past year to 200 per month.

Other analysts have estimated that ISIS’ strength in Iraq and Syria is in decline, as the group loses fighters and territory.

Brett McGurk, President Barack Obama’s envoy to the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS, declared that the jihadist group’s “perverse caliphate is shrinking.”

Gen. Gersten told reporters that ISIS fighters are increasingly deserting, their morale is low, and they are facing difficulty getting paid.

“In every single way, their capability to wage war is broken,” the U.S. general declared.

Maj. Gen. Najm Abdullah al-Jubbouri, a top Iraqi commander, recently told Breitbart News that ISIS is “weaker than it was three months ago.”

Nevertheless, Comey told reporters that the FBI is dealing with “north of 1,000” terrorism-related cases, of which 80 percent are linked to ISIS.

Moreover, Gen. David Rodriguez, head of U.S. Africa Command, recently said that the number of ISIS jihadists in Libya who aspire to attack Europe or the United States has more than doubled to between 4,000 and 6,000 in the last 12 to 18 months.

Despite the reported decline, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper estimated in February that nearly 36,500 foreign fighters seeking to engage in jihad have already traveled from more than 100 countries to Iraq and Syria, including approximately 6,600 from Western nations.

JERUSALEM  – A Central Committee member of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party praised terrorists who carry out stabbing attacks on Israelis, saying they “performed miracles” and adding that anyone who supports peace efforts with the Israelis is not a real Palestinian. 

“This people is greater than its leadership. The determination, willpower, and willingness to die for a dignified life are present among the youth who carried a knife after the disappearance of the Arab leadership, including the Palestinian. They performed a miracle by imposing a curfew within Israel with knives and rocks,” Abbas Zaki said.

He made his speech at a graduation ceremony held at the Palestinian Red Crescent headquarters in honor of the faculty of UNRWA Ramallah Women’s Training Center. UNWRA – the United Nations Relief and Works Agency – is a UN body specifically for Palestinian refugees. Both UNRWA and the Palestinian Red Crescent have hosted terror-promoting events as recently as April.

In the clip, which was exposed on Tuesday by Israeli NGO Palestinian Media Watch, Zaki also praised the parents of terrorists:

“Blessings to the mothers and fathers who gave birth to those who are marching on the path of light,” he said.

Zaki continued by slamming those who put their hopes in making peace, saying that anyone who “talks about renewing the relations with Israel is not a Palestinian and not a member of Fatah.”

Earlier this year, Danish Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen described both Abbas Zaki and the Fatah movement as “moderate.” In response, PMW authored a report documenting Zaki and the movement’s endorsement of terror during the recent wave of violence. The report resulted in a debate in the Danish parliament with Jensen dismissing the claims.

Bengaluru, May 24: Islam was not a religion of peace even for a day was the message given out by Abu Salha al Hindi, a former Indian Mujahideen operative who features now in a video that was released allegedly by the ISIS.

A video that is over 10 months old was released by members of the ISIS from India in what is being seen as a desperate attempt to spread their propaganda in the country.

There has been an attempt by the Indian government to counter the ISIS narrative by roping in the moderate Muslims to spread the message of peace in a bid to stop recruitments into terrorist outfits. However, the ISIS video looks to counter the same.

Islam never a religion of peace:

 The video clip has several Indians speaking in it. There are brazen messages and attempts made to belt out sentiments by quoting Babri or Godhra. However the most desperate attempt is made by Abu Salha who tries to counter the narrative that Islam is a religion of peace.
In the video he is heard saying, ” stop listening to those who say Islam is a religion of peace. It was never a religion of peace. It was not a religion of peace even for one single day.
Those who say Islam is a religion of peace are cowards. Are you all cowards to listen to these persons, he also states.

Six messages:

The video has messages from the six persons who are seen in it. Abu Salman says all should spend time preparing for jihad. Abu Salha says Islam was never a religion of peace for one single day.
Aman Tandel is the one who speaks about avenging Godhra and Babri.He also says the deaths caused due to the Muzzafarnagar riots too will be avenged. Abu Ammar invites Muslims of the Indian sub-continent to join the fight for jihad.Abu Omar Farooq goes on to state that after the Batla House encounter it was difficult to live in India. Bada Sajid who died in September 2015 says that India is a place of idol worship which is forbidden in Islam. OneIndia News

(THE UNITED WEST) On Tuesday on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL, the university’s Muslim Student Association’s hosted a so-called Islamophobia panel discussion, which was attended by the United West.

FAU Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Associate Professor Bassem Al Halabi was included on the panel of these distinguished experts and he made the incredible statement about the case to be made for Sharia Law and it’s provisions of capital punishment, including the cutting off of hands.

‘“Where there is no Sharia, Islamic Sharia, they die in dozens and hundreds every day because of organized crime. People kill people, other people or steal pizza for $10 and so – so when Islamic Shariah is saying about capital punishment – so even though it sounds like it is severe but if that is the solution to prevent any crimes, then it still has a lot of rules and regulations. I will just mention one and stop here, which is let’s say cutting off the hands of a person if they steal. It sounds very severe. It sounds very barbaric, I know. But if takes one or two people to have their hands cut off, and then there’s no more stealing and there’s no more stealing in the whole nation – that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die every day.”

Mustafa Mughniyeh, who replaced Hezbollah’s slain Chief of Staff Mustafa Badreddine, has reportedly declared that Israel, at least for now, is no longer considered the enemy of the Shiite organization. According to, citing a source they say is familiar with Hezbollah’s internal affairs, Mughniyeh is planning to carry out a major attack against the Saudis.

The new Hezbollah military chief, whose father was legendary terrorist Imad Mughniyeh—killed in 2008 in a car bomb blast, reportedly said that “while my father and uncle (Badreddine) failed to kill the Emir of Kuwait, I will not fail to kill the king of Wahabia (a reference to the Wahabi faith, Saudi Arabia’s state religion, which is the most viciously anti-Shiite) and cut off the hand of anyone who wishes to turn Syria Wahabi.”

Speaking before a cadre of Hezbollah’s top command, Mughniyeh then declared that Israel is a friend and a strategic ally opposite the Saudi enemy, and therefore, from this day on, there is no more war against Israel.

He also noted that Israel was the only country that liberated the Shiites in south Lebanon from the Palestinian conquest in 1982. The PLO, which had been driven out of Jordan a decade earlier, created an independent state in everything but a name in south Lebanon, and used it as a base from which to harass Israel—leading to the first Lebanon war.

Is there a smoking gun in the 28 pages that were redacted from the congressional joint inquiry on intelligence from before and after the 9/11 attacks that links the Saudi Arabian government to the attacks? A co-chair of that inquiry, former Forida Sen. Bob Graham thinks there is one. He also says the link goes all the way to the top of the Saudi government and that the government’s funding of terrorist groups continues to this day.

Graham, who has been advocating for the release of those pages for over a decade, sat down with Yahoo News host Stephanie Sy on “Yahoo News Live” to discuss when that might happen, the Senate’s passage of a bill allowing families of 9/11 victims to sue the Saudi government and what he says are the Saudi government’s continued links to terrorism.

On the 28 pages, he said: “I think [they’re] a smoking gun. I think the linkages are so multiple and strong and reinforcing that it’s hard to come away from reading all this material and not feel that there was a support network and that support network came from Saudi Arabia.”

He said it goes beyond the pages though: “They will also open the path to other materials. There are thousands of pages of documents, which speak to the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the 19 hijackers.” He continued, “Could those 19 people have carried out a plot as complex as 9/11 while maintaining anonymity in some cases for more than a year and a half while they were in the United States without having some support?”

As for the bill, which still has to be passed by the House of Representatives and signed by President Obama, he said, “It not only is going to open up the courts of justice to the families and the victims of 9/11. It also has the potential of exposing a tremendous amount of information relative to Saudi Arabia’s involvement in 9/11.” He called the bill “a very big victory.”

After meeting with Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Tuesday about the 28 pages, Graham also indicated that the release of those pages could happen soon. He said, “The general has been reviewing these pages closely for a year or more. He told us that before the end of this week, he would probably have his review completed. Then it goes to a panel that’s made up of several agencies [FBI, the Department of State] who will look at the 28 pages for their issues of concern, and then it goes to the president for his determination as to whether to declassify these papers.”

He also told Sy that withholding the documents goes beyond 9/11. He said it could lead to current links between the Saudi government and terrorist groups. He said, “This has been a long time that this information has been withheld from the American people, but there’s also a recognition of the consequences of withholding. Not only the consequences that justice is being denied to the Americans who suffered grievously by 9/11 because they lost a loved one.” He continued, “I think that the Saudis who know what they did and have a pretty good idea that the United States, at least at the highest levels, knows what they did and then nothing’s happened… They’ve interpreted this as being impunity and have continued to fund terrorist organizations and to train the next generation of recruits in their mosques and madrasas.” He said those groups include al-Qaida and ISIS.

Does he consider the withholding of the 28 pages a cover-up? “I have used the term ‘aggressive deception.’”
