Taking the Jihad Temperature - A Gathering Storm Special Series – INFILTRATION Part 2

If you throw a frog into boiling water, he will jump out. If you put it in cold water and slowly turn up the heat, he will not notice the rise in temperature and will eventually boil. 

The Islamists are boiling our frog and though this blog and hundreds like it record almost daily the rise in the Jihad temperature, unless we see how far and fast the temperature has risen, we will not know how far along our boiling has progressed. 

So, the Gathering Storm will be posting only once a week but these weekly posts will take the Jihadist temperature by looking back at news and events over the last two years. Over the next several weeks in the areas of intimidationinfiltrationdisinformation and thoseappeasers and apologists who either knowingly or unknowingly advance the Jihad agenda, the Gathering Storm will show how far our frog has been boiled. 

By seeing the boiling water around us, we can see how far the boiling has progressed. 

The good news is that we are noticing that the water is getting warmer. There is a glimmer of awareness here - a glimmer of hope there. But we have a long way to go. 

Here’s this week’s look back at the rising Jihad temperature of INFILTRATION !! And remember – this is just a sampling of Jihadist Infiltration. More to follow.

Crosswords & Jihad

Quick. What country’s classroom teacher gave this crossword puzzle with these words to students to solve? 

  • “Kill”
  • “Destroy America
  • Sharon killed a lot of innocent people,”
  • Palestine is not a terrorist group.”
  • “Allah help destroy this body of evil making humanity miserable.”

Saudi Arabia? Iran? Syria? Nope. The United States

  • A Spanish teacher at Smithfield-Selma Senior High School resigned this week after handing out an assignment that some students and parents said teaches hate. Khalid Chahhou, who was in his first year of teaching in Johnston County, gave students a worksheet in which they were to translate words and find them within a word-search puzzle. Some students started uncovering strange words in the process. "There were words like 'kill,' then I saw it said 'destroy America,'" Eric Herrera said. "It was kind of scary at first to think about, you know, your own teacher in your own school that is teaching you," Herrera said. School administrators said they confronted Chahhou about an unidentified concern Wednesday and he resigned.

Yep folks, the multicultural curriculum at work in our public schools. 

  • Chahhou, who also teaches Arabic at a religious school affiliated with the Islamic Association of Cary, told WRAL in a telephone interview that students got the wrong message from the assignment. "When I made the assignment, I was upset and angry about a story I recently saw on the news. If any message appears, it is more of a message to myself, not to my students. I never meant to hurt or upset any students or parents," he said.

Whoa! Well at least he didn’t climb into his SUV or family sedan and decided to run down infidels because of a story he recently heard on the news. Three guesses what that news story was about – and the first two don’t count.

Hey, Islam! Get A Clue from the Amish

Can Islam get any more constipated? More proof that this primitive, prudish religion can not live in a 21st century society

  • LUCKNOW, India: Muslim clerics at a leading seminary in India have asked people not to use verses from the Quran as ringtones for their mobile phones, saying the practice was un-Islamic. Clerics at the Dar-ul Uloom seminary in the northern Indian town of Deoband issued an edict banning the use of Quran verses or Muslim call to prayers as ringtones, saying doing so violates Islamic law. "Anyone who persists in using these should be ostracized from society," Qazmi said. 

Perhaps we could learn something from the Amish. Their culture refuses to live in the 21st century. They eschew any and all forms of technology. And yet, they live peacefully – believing in non-violence and peace, by the way – within our modern society. 

What’s the difference between the Amish and Muslims? The Amish do not come into our cities and demand that cell phones be turned off, that the site of an automobile is abhorrent to them, that certain forms of art be shrouded to protect their sensitive souls, that the women on the streets of the city they visit, even those that visit their community, be covered from head to toe. 

It’s time Muslims learn how two different cultures out of time can live side by side peacefully in a modern society.

Freedom of Speech or Sedition

Britain, tied in the Gordian knot of multiculturalism and Political Correctness, is struggling with the threats to it security from Islamic ‘extremists’. 

  • The government on Friday published guidance for universities and colleges on dealing with attempts by Muslim extremists to recruit students. The report from the Department of Education said there was evidence that higher education facilities may have been used for researching violence or promoting radical ideas.

I guess someone at the Department of Education was doing their homework. So what do you do about it? Publish guidelines, of course.

  • "The guidance provides a recognition — that I believe must be faced squarely — that violent extremism in the name of Islam is a real, credible and sustained threat to the UK. And that there is evidence of serious, but not widespread, Islamist extremist activity" in higher education, said Higher Education Minister Bill Rammell. The guidance is intended to bring institutions up to date on the implications of recent legislation, and to sensitize staff to the issues, the department said.

I have a better idea. Chuck the guidelines and enforce the sedition laws! If your enemy is recruiting foot soldiers on your soil you lock them up.

The response from the educational community – ‘concerns’ – not about the threat to the security of the nations but….

  • Sally Hunt, joint general secretary of the University and College Union, raised concerns about possible conflicts with freedom of speech. It is not acceptable for individuals, staff or students to be asked to compromise their duty to teach or their wish to learn through debate and argument because of this advice," Hunt said.

Right. It’s the duty of every professor to make sure that the proper debate and argument takes place while the recruited extremists plant a bomb in the student union.

Perhaps Ms Hunt whold consider this excerpt from an article at the Israel Related web site:

  • The illusion that Islam can be housebroken so that Muslims stop blowing up inside the house is just that, an illusion cultivated by the same refusal to confront the problem that motivated Bush' statement. For the moment Europe and America are frantically spreading newspapers everywhere while pretending they're spreading out the newspapers for everyone as if a family trying not to make their incontinent dog feel bad, lay down the papers equally for their spouses and children as if it's a problem for the entire family, rather than for the nasty stray they've insisted on adopting and remaining loyal to, no matter how often it bites their children.

The Religious Worker Visa Scam

Here we go again. Letting the camel’s nose into the tent. I mean, Islam is preaching peace – right? 

  • Dozens of Pakistani immigrants who came to the United States posing as religious workers were arrested Wednesday, authorities said, as Homeland Security agents tried to close a commonly exploited avenue for illegal immigration. Immigrants who were supposed to be teaching or conducting religious ceremonies were arrested across the East Coast, where authorities said many worked as gas station attendants, taxi drivers, landscapers and factory workers

I wonder what kind of mosque services they were holding there. 

  • U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have been scrutinizing the religious worker visa program, which a 2005 review found was rife with problems. Homeland Security officials found fraud in one of every three religious visas they reviewed. "What we see are religious institutions such as churches that may exist only on paper but are sponsoring people," ICE spokesman Dean Boyd said. "Our concern is we don't know who these people are. They're obviously not who they say they are and they don't have religious training."

Oh, doesn’t that make you feel secure? But Muslim can claim to be a cleric in the religion of Islam.

  • In the report released last year, officials found cases where workers could not be found and addresses could not be verified. In one incident, the address on the visa application was found to have been used by a terrorist suspect, though Boyd said there was no indication of a terrorist threat in Wednesday's case.

Naaaw – they were just here to enjoy the many freedoms of an infidel nation.

  • He said the aliens paid large fees to get people or organizations to sponsor them for visas.

Like Al Qaeda, perhaps?

CyberJihad – the Spread of Virtual Mosques

Appearing on last week’s Laura Ingraham’s radio program, the author of “Now They Call Me Infidel” Nonie Darwish said: 

  • The ultimate goal of radical Islam is to take over the US. Ms. Darwish, a Muslim, said that hundreds of Islamic mosques are being quickly built throughout the US, which currently have no attendees. Darwish said that the mosques are radical Wahabee in nature and “preach hate”. When she questioned why the mosques were being built “at such great speed”, Darwish advised that she was told: “We’re here to Islamize America.” 

Though the non-Muslim world has not fully understood the role of mosques in the Islamist plans to dominate the world, they have, in addition, become adept at using the Internet as ‘virtual mosques’ for indoctrination, recruitment, propaganda and communications. 

  • An exiled Islamic cleric is still preaching support for terrorism within Britain by using pseudonyms over the Internet. The radical Syrian-born preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed broadcasts online most evenings, one of which praised the four Islamist suicide bombers who killed 52 commuters on London's transport network July 7, 2005, according to the broadcaster. "How can you condemn those great men - it's not something so bad, something so good. Something so good to be involved in," Mohammed allegedly said, referring to the four men……… The Internet chatroom was infiltrated by a group called Vigil, made up of former secret service officers, hackers, and amateur detectives. 
  • At one point, a member of Vigil, also using a pseudonym, asked Mohammed if Dublin's airport should be a target for terrorists, because American troops transit there on the way to Iraq. Mohammed replied: "Hit the target and hit it very hard, that issue should be understood. Your situation there is quite difficult therefore the answer lies in your question." When contacted by Britain's domestic Press Association, Mohammed said that he had not been made aware of the BBC's allegations, and dismissed them as "ludicrous" and "a fabrication." "I do not advocate for any people to carry out any action against anybody," he said. 

NOTE: Muslim Taqiyya at work. 

And now they’re use of the Internet is expanding

  • Some changes are occurring in the approach used by websites supporting terrorism: they are becoming far more modern in design and they are dealing with topics studied to reach a younger and skilled public of potential sympathizers and recruits. According to the annual report by the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center  released in June 2006, large amount of money have been invested into the creation of an extensive Internet infrastructure, including 20 websites in 8 different languages (Arabic, English, French, Russian, Persian, Malay, Urdu and Indonesian). As Bouchaib Slim, a researcher with the terrorism department at Singapore's Institute of Defense and Strategic Studies declared in his intervention at the Digital Terrorism conference in Singapore on Tuesday, some websites have recently started publishing comedy clips and Top10 video lists of the most devastating terror attacks, the Associated Press reported . Using this juvenile approach, even the worst action looses its connotation and it can be presented as an entertaining element, not so different from a videogame, acquiring this way  an extremely high impact on Islamic  teens and young guys that are more and more attracted by the values that such web sites bring about. 

Now combine this with the recent revelation that Google admits that it hosts al Qaeda web sites and we can see how wide spread these virtual mosques are becoming.

Storm Track Infiltration: al-Google & al-YouTube?

I’ve blogged before about the use of cyberspace by the jihadists for recruitment, indoctrination, and control and command.  This article at First Coast News does a fabulous job showing how well developed this channel of propaganda has developed. 

  • JACKSONVILLE, FL-- It's a video showing a room full of children sharing their dreams. They are not excited about being doctors, lawyers or teachers. Instead, the children shout, "We are the nation of Hezbollah. I shall sacrifice my life for Allah." A group of children in training to be a mujahideen, or holy warrior. Online there are videos of those warriors. One suicide bomber announces he is readying himself to blow up a group of American soldiers. The video goes on for eight minutes and even shows the explosion. In the background are cheers from those taking the pictures. The video is just some of the many the First Coast News I-team found on the internet from sites like Youtube and Myspace. 

But it gets worse. 

  • "I think right now we are a ticking time bomb," says Tom Hayden, a retired Lt. Col Marine, who is also a counter terrorism expert. Hayden says some of the videos, while disturbing, are online for a reason. "Something like myspace, probably the most well known, popular website right now, it's even being used to transmit messages," says Hayden….."There is a specific time that a message is coming. Then it's on there and then it is taken off," says Hayden. He says hidden messages are also being sent in pictures and videos and the solider is already equipped with the code to unlock the secret. "It's being used quite frequently." 

This is known as steganography

  • In fact, some of the videos we found and recorded were gone in a matter of days, removed by the user. There was no trace of what was there or who the page belonged to. The experts will tell you that's a problem, because there is a new breed of terrorist out there. "You won't see anymore like we have Mohammad Atta and that group that came," says Hayden. 

So Google? What you gonna do about it? Of has your dhimmitude been complete and you’re now working for the enemy?

A Modern Day Fairy Tale


The squirrel works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building and improving his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the squirrel is warm and well fed.

The shivering grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.



The squirrel works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the squirrel is warm and well fed.

A social worker finds the shivering grasshopper, calls a press conference and demands to know why the squirrel should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others less fortunate, like the grasshopper, are cold and starving.

The BBC shows up to provide live coverage of the shivering grasshopper; with cuts to a video of the squirrel in his comfortable warm home with a table laden with food.

The British press informs people that they should be ashamed that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so, while others have plenty.

The Labour Party, Greenpeace, Animal Rights and The Grasshopper Council of GB demonstrate in front of the squirrel's house.

The BBC, interrupting a cultural festival special from Notting Hill with breaking news, broadcasts a multi cultural choir singing "We Shall Overcome".

Ken Livingstone rants in an interview with Trevor McDonald that the squirrel got rich off the backs of grasshoppers, and calls for an immediate tax hike on the squirrel to make him pay his "fair share" and increases the charge for squirrels to enter inner London.

In response to pressure from the media, the Government drafts the Economic Equity and Grasshopper Anti Discrimination Act, retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The squirrel's taxes are reassessed.

He is taken to court and fined for failing to hire grasshoppers as builders for the work he was doing on his home and an additional fine for contempt when he told the court the grasshopper did not want to work.

The grasshopper is provided with a council house, financial aid to furnish it and an account with a local taxi firm to ensure he can be socially mobile. The squirrel's food is seized and re distributed to the more needy members of society, in this case the grasshopper.

Without enough money to buy more food, to pay the fine and his newly imposed retroactive taxes, the squirrel has to downsize and start building a new home.

The local authority takes over his old home and utilizes it as a temporary home for asylum seeking cats who had hijacked a plane to get to Britain as they had to share their country of origin with mice. On arrival they tried to blow up the airport because of Britain's apparent love of dogs.

The cats had been arrested for the international offence of hijacking and attempted bombing but were immediately released because the police fed them pilchards instead of salmon whilst in custody.

Initial moves to then return them to their own country were abandoned because it was feared they would face death by the mice. The cats devise and start a scam to obtain money from people's credit cards.

A Panorama special shows the grasshopper finishing up the last of the squirrel's food, though spring is still months away, while the council house he is in, crumbles around him because he hasn't bothered to maintain the house.

He is shown to be taking drugs. Inadequate government funding is blamed for the grasshopper's drug 'illness'.

The cats seek recompense in the British courts for their treatment since arrival in UK.

The grasshopper gets arrested for stabbing an old dog during a burglary to get money for his drugs habit. He is imprisoned but released immediately because he has been in custody for a few weeks.

He is placed in the care of the probation service to monitor and supervise him. Within a few weeks he has killed a guinea pig in a botched robbery.

A commission of enquiry, that will eventually cost £10,000,000 and state the obvious, is set up.

Additional money is put into funding a drug rehabilitation scheme for grasshoppers and legal aid for lawyers representing asylum seekers is increased.

The asylum-seeking cats are praised by the government for enriching Britain's multicultural diversity and dogs are criticized by the government for failing to befriend the cats.

The grasshopper dies of a drug overdose. The usual sections of the press blame it on the obvious failure of government to address the root causes of despair arising from social inequity and his traumatic experience of prison.

They call for the resignation of a minister.

The cats are paid a million pounds each because their rights were infringed when the government failed to inform them there were mice in the United Kingdom.

The squirrel, the dogs and the victims of the hijacking, the bombing, the burglaries and robberies have to pay an additional percentage on their credit cards to cover losses, their taxes are increased to pay for law and order and they are told that they will have to work beyond 65 because of a shortfall in government funds.


Britain Was Warned Over a Decade Ago

 “It is a matter of deep regret that the Government, all political parties and the mass media in Britain are now engaged in a relentless campaign to reduce Muslim citizens of this country to the status of a disparaged and oppressed minority. We have no alternative but to resist this invidious campaign.” 

This quote is from the Muslim Manifesto: A Strategy for Survival used to create the Council of British Muslims to act as “a Muslim parliament” in the very same nation that gave us the Magna Carta, detailing the rules of property rights and individual freedoms. 

From NewsByUs

  • Britain’s Muslim Manifesto made it clear that “Political and cultural subservience goes against their grain” because “at its inception Islam created a political platform from which Muslims were to launch themselves on a global role as founders of great states, empires and a world civilization and culture.” According to the UK’s Muslim Manifesto, “The fact is that a Muslim woman cannot be a western woman.” The problem for Muslims in Great Britain was that “There are laws on the British Statute Book that are in direct conflict with the laws of Allah.” 

Can it be made any clearer?

  • “We are Muslims first and last.” “Jihad is a basic requirement of Islam and living in Britain or having British nationality by birth or naturalization does not absolve the Muslim from his or her duty to participate in jihad: this participation can be active service in armed struggle abroad and/or the provision of material and moral support to those engaged in such struggle anywhere in the world.” “Islam is our guide in all situations.”

Assimilation, according to the Manifesto, wasn’t even an option. Why need it be? By the early 1990s, there were already about 1,000 mosques in Great Britain, many of them former Anglican churches that had been abandoned and sold to Muslims. 

  • As is the case of France today, the Manifesto recommended that “The Muslim community may have to define ‘no go’ areas where the exercise of ‘freedom of speech’ against Islam will not be tolerated.” 

We’ve been warned.

Are Textbook Companies In Collusion with Islamists?

I ran across this interesting post from Conservative Beach Girl and shows that the Islamification of America continues right under our noses to praise and advance the god of multiculturalism. Beach Girl quotes some concerned parents in California.

Here in rural northern CA, a small group of citizens have been bringing attention to fact that there are no less than 6 chapters devoted to the recently adopted 7th grade study of Islam/the 5 Pillars/Muhammad and contributions of Islam. The only response we got in the local papers were name-calling from the educrats!

Not one parent voiced their concern to us or called the school. We started 2 blogs, to expose this particular textbook(TCI)and the other to tell the truth about Islam in general. We have had one public showing of Islam-What the West Needs to Know and will have another one in January, at the local middle school! We purchased 25 copies of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades to sell at wholesale just to get the truth out. This is all being done with private (albeit little) funds.

This is not just a local problem. "Islamic contributors to all the U.S. textbook publishers have seen that "their side" gets printed and the slant is total indoctrination in view of what we see going on around the world.

Make no mistake, the government schools have already been high jacked by the Islamists and it's been going on for the last 10 years right under our noses. But we are still wondering how to stir "the masses".

The following is an article taken directly for Citizens for Truth in Education. It is worth your time to visit their site.

Should Your Children Believe Specious Statements About The Life of Muhammad?

Someone once said that the best way to understand today is to view it from the perspective of yesterday. However, if yesterday's perspective is inaccurate so will be the understanding of today. Let’s look at Chapter 8 in the History Alive! textbook, now in use at our local middle schools. That chapter is titled The Prophet Muhammad.

In the section on Muhammad’s early life, page 8, we read that “Muhammad’s mother sent him to live with a nomad family in the desert. There the young boy learned about Arab traditions, such as being kind to strangers and helping orphans, widows and other needy members of society.” What was in fact the Arab tradition of kindness toward strangers, orphans, widows and the needy during the days of Muhammad's childhood? This context is important to substantiate the statement in the textbook. We researched online to discover what of it could be validated.

According to the Muslim Women’s League, “Since the Arabs had no fully developed system of writing, the sources for this period are limited to traditions, legends, proverbs and above all to poems. The tribe was a unit by itself, and regarded every other tribe as an enemy, unless they had forged alliances to protect one another. There was no centralized infrastructure to protect people and their property. In most tribes of pre-Islamic Arabia, it has been shown that women were deprived of their basic rights, such as the right to choose a husband, to divorce, and to inherit from their family. In pre-Islamic Arabia, a pregnant, divorced woman could be taken by another man under agreement with her former husband.” Do these pre-Islamic Arab traditions sound like kindness toward women and the weak?

If the Teacher’s Curriculum Institute is tossing out specious statements about Muhammad's life, which no 7th grader or an adult for that matter would question because they're originating from "respectable Islamic scholars," is it fair to warn parents and teachers to be wary of other such statements? We certainly think so and will continue to point them out in later posts.

Beach Girl closes with “One thing that can be done is to find out how much money is being given to textbook companies and which companies and then asking school districts to boycott these companies. Don't laugh! Miller's beer learned a bit about public outrage lately when they backed La Raza and the Mexican demonstrations in our streets. Our tax dollars are subsidizing the Islamification and indoctrination of our children when they are young and most impressionable. Have we gone mad? Are we on some sort of drug trip? Have political correctness, diversity, and the altar of multiculturalism addled our brains?”

Seems so.

Storm Track Infiltration: CAIR Shows Its Real Colors – Again!

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the so-called ‘moderate’ Muslim organization and advisor to the Bush Administration and Washington bureaucats on Muslim/non-Muslim relations, has shown its true colors again.

Not that it’s the first time. Anti-CAIR has been exposing CAIR’s radical agenda for years. But now even the Administration has to see that CAIR’s recent communiqué proves their radical agenda. From FrontPageMagazine – CAIR’s Pro-Hamas Press

On November 30th, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) did something that would have made the group's Syrian-harbored "grandfather" proud. It posted to its website and sent out to its e-mail list an overtly pro-Hamas and anti-Semitic article, written by a vehemently anti-Israel author. In the dozen-plus years of its existence, for CAIR little has changed. The man most responsible for CAIR 's founding is none other than the number two leader of Hamas today, Mousa Abu Marzook. He has been located in Damascus, Syria, since shortly after the United States deported him to Jordan back in 1997. Each and every week, one can read quotes attributed to him -- speaking in the name of Hamas -- in the news media. As recently as November 14th, the Associated Press quoted him as saying that international demands for Hamas to recognize Israel were "Illegal and illegitimate."

CAIR’s Hamas connection goes deep.

Before his deportation, Marzook made his mark on American society by creating, within it, a vast Hamas infrastructure. It included a Hamas command center called the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR), a Hamas financing arm called the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), and a Hamas propaganda wing called the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP). It is through this last group that CAIR was born. CAIR was founded by three leaders of the IAP, in June of 1994. Two months prior to this, one of the founders publicly stated his support for Hamas. He is the Executive Director of CAIR today, Nihad Awad. He stated, "After I researched the situation inside and outside Palestine , I am in support of the Hamas movement more than the PLO... I know that this movement as an Islamic movement has not been objectively reported in the United States..."

We have here the enemy of democracy blatantly stating that they support the Islamist world-wide agenda.

And now, less than one week ago, CAIR has elected to post to its website and ship to its e-mail list a pro-Hamas article with anti-Jewish overtones. The piece, 'The kangaroo court taking place in Chicago ,' was written by Ray Hanania, a man known for his anti-Israel attitudes, previously referring to Ariel Sharon as being "Nazi-like" and saying that Israel is " provoking the violence" against itself.

In the article -- a commentary lamenting America 's treatment of Hamas operative Mohammed Salah -- Hanania finds no fault with Salah's affection for Hamas, an organization that uses suicide bombings as a means to murder innocent civilians. He states, "Salah is not guilty of terrorism. Whether he supported Hamas or not is a non-issue. Many Palestinians support Hamas in part because Hamas is a creation of Israel's refusal to make genuine peace."

Tell the big lie over an over and over again and people will come to believe it. Israel has done nothing but try and make peace wit the Palestinians. But as stated above, and in the words of Marzook, “International demands for Hamas to recognize Israel were "Illegal and illegitimate.”

The Islamists are adept at talking our o both sides of their mouth and non-Muslims just nod in agreement. When will we wake up?

Those are examples of the rising Jihad temperature of for this week. When seen in groups like this, the slow boil becomes obvious.

Next week another look back at the rising Jihad temperature of Islamist DISINFORMATION!!

So What?

I’ve been thinking lately about the question “So what?” as it pertains to Obama’s campaign and his possible Presidency. 

But let me back up a bit. 

Those of us who have anti-jihadi blogs fret that the general public lacks the awareness of the Islamic threat and that we are only preaching to the choir. We believe that the ‘Islam is peace’ mantra and most Muslims are moderate is held by the vast majority of American citizens. 

But there’s one thing that might prove that false. 

Answer me this. 

If most Americans are either oblivious to or seem to be unconcerned with the Islamic threat to our society, then why does the Obama campaign hysterically deny that Obama has a Muslim past? I mean, if it matters so little to the majority of Americans who will cast their vote in the coming national opinion poll on November 4th,  why would Obama’s  Muslim past, true or untrue mean anything? 

What I mean is ‘So what?’ 

Could it be true that the internal polling of the Obama campaign has uncovered the reality that most Americans find something threatening with Islam and the Muslims who practice it? At least, if true, enough voters who hold this feeling will not vote for Obama? 

The answer to the question of “So what?” goes even further if Obama is elected. 

Case in point, Biden’s comments at a fundraiser last weekend. He stated that it is a 100% certainty that, if elected, Obama will be ‘tested’ by our enemies within six months of taking office and that test could come in several forms. 

I assume one of those ‘test’ would be another massive terrorist attack on US soil. 

Biden confided that Obama’s response will not be popular at first with the American people but in time they will see the error of their ways and agree with him. Past quotes shows that Obama’s response would be one of appeasement and soul searching to discover why the world hates us so instead of an instant retaliation as GW had done. 

Excuse me, but logic says otherwise. 

2010 is not 2001. Then few people knew about Islam and Muslim beliefs in 2001. We were caught unawares by this political ideology that was following through on a modern day strategy – The Project - for world domination over the last hundred years. 

In 2001 we knew little of Islam outside of it being a quaint behavior practiced in the wastelands of the Middle-East. 

If and when a massive terrorist attack hits the US homeland in 2010, there are many more Americans today who are aware of the threat of Islam. This is proven by the attempts of the Obama campaign to distance him from a Muslim past. 

If Obama attempts to apply his ‘Let’s just talk’ political philosophy standing on the bodies of a hundred thousand or more American dead, claiming that this was not an act perpetuated by the religion Islam and that the vast majority of Muslims are against such actions, this time it will be the non-Muslims in this country who ask “So what?”

Taking the Jihad Temperature - A Gathering Storm Special Series- INTIMIDATION Part 2

If you throw a frog into boiling water, he will jump out. If you put it in cold water and slowly turn up the heat, he will not notice the rise in temperature and will eventually boil. 

The Islamists are boiling our frog and though this blog and hundreds like it record almost daily the rise in the Jihad temperature, unless we see how far and fast the temperature has risen, we will not know how far along our boiling has progressed. 

So, the Gathering Storm will be posting only once a week but these weekly posts will take the Jihadist temperature by looking back at news and events over the last two years. Over the next several weeks in the areas of intimidationinfiltrationdisinformation and thoseappeasers and apologists who either knowingly or unknowingly advance the Jihad agenda, the Gathering Storm will show how far our frog has been boiled. 

By seeing the boiling water around us, we can see how far the boiling has progressed. 

The good news is that we are noticing that the water is getting warmer. There is a glimmer of awareness here - a glimmer of hope there. But we have a long way to go. 

Here’s this week’s look back AGAIN at the rising Jihad temperature of INTIMIDATION !! And remember – this is just a sampling of Jihadist Intimidation. More to follow.

Storm Track Intimidation: CAIR Continues Its Litigation Jihad

The group that calls itself a ‘civil rights’ organization has proven time and time again to be the litigation arm of the Islamists waging the many jihads on the non-Muslim world.

CAIR’s latest attempt at protecting our civil rights are charges against a California middle school teacher, Randy Ingram, who had the courage to state to his sixth grade class the obvious - that Iran has sworn to destroy the state of Israel.

Given Iranian president Ahmadinejad's constant threatening of Israel with destruction, Mr. Ingram's statement would seem to be non-controversial. Unfortunately in California where teacher's unions are pushing for a Marxist comic book to be used as part of history curriculua such truth telling might well be rewarded in the form of disciplinary action. A single student in Ingram's class allegedly reported some version of the instructor's story back to his parents who then, in a template repeated hundreds of times a year by Islamists nationwide, called in the Muslim thought police.

And who’s the lead jihadist in this particular drama?

Taking the lead here is Kamal Abu-Shamsieh, the director of Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno. What the Bee does not inform its readers is that Shamsieh is a professional Islamist.

Kamal Abu-Shamsieh is a former Palestinian journalist and a documentary film maker. He is currently the national community relations director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) based in Los Angeles. He provides the Muslim & ethnic media outlets with weekly updates and news about the Muslim community. Mr. Shamsieh is both a radical Muslim and an Israel hater who in a piece authored for the far-left pro-Fresno Alliance newsletter, accused the Jewish state of war crimes, "represented a new phase of Israel's war crimes," while decrying the alleged, "apartheid policies of Israel."

Typical of the Islamist mindset, Shamsieh believes in limiting the line of inquiry when it strays to the type of topic that naturally might inconvenient questions.

"I don't believe schools are a place to debate political views on international affairs or any other affairs that are not related to teaching our children."

Oh really? Especially if the political debate shows Islam in a bad light. Right Mr. Shamsieh? And if I remember correct, current affairs IS a valid topic to teach children in school. But today’s schools are more interested in teaching multicultural values and political correctness than world history and current events.

Keep ‘em young and dumb is the plan and lead them down the road to being good little dhimmis swallowing the propaganda of the Islamists so visible today in our public school system.

As is usually the case in such matters, the Saudi Wahhabist funded Council on American Islamic Relations is now also pushing this hoax via its newsletter. These attempts are happening all over the United States and are part of the Islamist agenda to suppress freedom of expression. Such efforts constitute evidence of the Islamists disregard for Constitutionally enumerated rights and offer the briefest of glimpses as to what the radical fundamentalists mean when they push for Shar'ia. For the record think of MPAC as a slicker, more PR savvy CAIR, careful to position themselves as moderate but in reality no different.


We must identify and expose these attempts at litigation and cultural jihad when we find them. For Islamists jihad is the way – Shariah law is the weapon of choice in subduing the non-Muslims and moderate Muslim societies.

Storm Track Intimidation: Islamist Useful Idiots Kill Free Speech at Cambridge


Just when you think the Motoon controversy had run its course, the Islamist appeasers and complainers strike again. This time, at two students at Cambridge University.

The controversy over the publication of one of the now infamous Jyllands Posten Mohammed cartoons in a Cambridge University student publication has taken on a new seriousness, after two students were questioned under caution by Cambridgeshire police. The students, understood to be the editor and guest editor of unofficial Clare College magazine Clareification (renamed Crucification for an issue focused on religious satire) were interrogated under Section 5 of the Public Order Act (“harassment, alarm or distress”).

I wonder if the interrogates wore Islamo-fascist symbols on their uniforms? Or perhaps they were brown?


Police confirmed to Index that the students were questioned last Friday, and a file has been sent to the Crown Prosecution Service, which will decide whether to press charges against the students in the coming weeks. The magazine, circulated for free among Clare students, contained several articles ridiculing religious belief, and the front-page headlines ‘Katie Lin-O-Scopes more reliable than Bible’ (a reference to the magazine’s spoof horoscope column) and ‘Ayatollah rethinks stance on “misunderstood” Rushdie’.

The editorial stated ‘I hate Islam’. The Mohammed cartoon appeared on the back page, juxtaposed with a picture of Clare’s student president with the caption ‘One is a prophet of God, a great leader and an example to us all. The other is a violent paedophile.’

This is not the first time a student publication has courted controversy by publishing the cartoons. In February 2006, four students were suspended from Cardiff University after the cartoons were published in Gair rhydd, the student union’s official newspaper.

The useful idiots of the Islamist are not just looney – but dangerous.

What’s ever happened to free speech in this country? Where’s the ACLU? Oh, how silly of me to ask. They’ll defend anyone degrading the Judeo-Christian religion but Islam is off limits.

Storm Track Intimidation: Litigation Jihad - Muslim Student Sues School

It seems a Muslim student is suing the Newark public schools claiming that he was unable to attend his high school graduation last June because it was held in a church. The student, Bilal Shareef, 18, said it was against his beliefs to set foot in any building with symbols involving God.

The ACLU is taking up the case because, get this, it proves the insensitivity of the school district.

“The position I was put in was very, very uncomfortable,” said Mr. Shareef, who graduated from West Side High with a 4.0 grade-point average and is a student at Union County College in Cranford. He is seeking damages and an order to bar the use of churches for future graduations.

Since Shareef doesn’t like it, no one should be allowed to do it. The tyranny of the minority – the objective of the politically correct - is at it again. The ACLU seeing this as an opportunity to attack religion once again is licking its chops over the prospect.

And of course the ACLU is all over the case saying that under the state’s Constitution, no person can be “compelled to attend any place of worship contrary to his faith and judgment”, even though the school district’s lawyer says that state law “allows some use of religious facilities by public school districts”.

And what’s the reaction from the Muslim and non-Muslim community?

Louay Safi, the executive director of the Islamic Society of North America, which has 400 affiliated mosques, said “this is the first time I have heard of a student not wanting to just visit a church on that grounds.”

The imam of the Islamic Cultural Center in Newark, where Mr. Shareef worships, could not be reached for comment about its stance. Mr. Shareef said, “I can’t speak for all Muslims; I know some that don’t mind and some that do.”

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a nonprofit educational association, said the use of churches for graduation ceremonies was a growing phenomenon, but he was unaware of any other lawsuits over the issue.

So why the use of churches for graduation ceremonies of public schools in the first place? Could it be a devious plot of the right wing Christian conservatives who want to takeover the public schools and install their brand of radical Christian fundamentalism? Or perhaps it’s a plot to expose impressionable Muslim youngsters to a crusading religion in hopes of turning them way from Mohammed’s one true light?

Nope. None of the above. It’s simple economics.

The school district plans to fight the lawsuit, arguing it didn't have a choice, that there were no large secular spaces available to handle the roughly 250 graduating seniors at West Side High School, said Perry Lattiboudere, the school district's general counsel.

This is just another attempt that has been growing quickly over the last several years of a cultural jihad using litigation jihad to assert Muslim values on a community.

Why now? Why within the last several years Muslims here and abroad are offended by the culture they live in and instead of finding ways to live peacefully side by side with other cultures, they have find ways to dominate it? Why aren’t Buddhists, Hindu and Jewish students offended by attending graduation ceremony in a church?

Even more important, who was counseling this teenage Muslim to come up with his idea? His family? His mosque? A radical cleric? This has nothing to so with the issue at hand. This is but another attempt at forcing the non-Muslim culture into dhimmitude and advancing Islamic mores and laws in order to Ilsamitize a society.

Storm Track Intimidation: Attempts at Imposing Shariah Law Again - in Minneapolis

Taking a leaf out of the Minneapolis Muslim cab drivers book, some Muslim cashiers at Target refuse to handle pork, setting off another debate over the place of religion in society.

Are they trying to outdo Dearbornistan?

Beryl Dsouza was late and in no mood for delays when she stopped at a Target store after work two weeks ago for milk, bread and bacon. So Dsouza was taken aback when the cashier -- who had on the traditional headscarf, or hijab, worn by many Muslim women -- refused to swipe the bacon through the checkout scanner. "She made me scan the bacon. Then she opened the bag and made me put it in the bag," said Dsouza, 53, of Minneapolis. "It made me wonder why this person took a job as a cashier."

This is yet another attempt by Islamist Muslims to make our society live by their rules.

In the latest example of religious beliefs creating tension in the workplace, some Muslims in the Twin Cities are adhering to a strict interpretation of the Qur'an that prohibits the handling of pork products. Instead of swiping the items themselves, they are asking non-Muslim employees or shoppers to do it for them.

Hey little dhimmi. Bow to the superiority of Islam! Better yet, if you can’t do the kob you were hired for –quit!

Dr. Shah Khan, a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Minnesota in Fridley, said the Somali Muslim community is divided between those who believe it is wrong only to eat pork and more orthodox Muslims who believe the prohibition extends to selling, touching or handling the meat. He urged people to remember the extraordinary adjustments many Somalis have made in coming to the Twin Cities. “Many of these people are refugees. They may have been tortured. And they came here having never held a book in English,” he said. “They’re already adapting to our society. We need to adapt to them, too.

Bull Hockey, Dr. Khan! The primitive culture adapts to the superior own – not visa versa. Besides, have you seen any Hindu cashiers refusing to handle beef? This is another attempt at forcing the dominate culture to submit to a minority one.

Target released this statement in response: “Providing guests with consistently fast checkouts is a key, fundamental part of our business and our guest service commitment. As always, we continue to explore reasonable solutions that consider the concerns of team members while ensuring that we maintain our ability to provide the highest level of guest service.”

I have a better suggestion. If you can’t do the job then the employer should fired them. But then, this really isn't about the pork. Or liquor. Or seeing eye dogs. Or birth control prescriptions.

Is it.

Storm Track Intimidation: Muslim Removed from Human Relations Commission Protested

Muslims are offended – Again! This time in Arizona. Hat tip to Michael.

Nearly three dozen Muslims held a protest Friday in front of City Hall, spurred in part by the removal of a Muslim man from the Phoenix Human Relations Commission. The City Council in October removed Marwan Ahmad from the commission. Sabahudin Ceman, imam of the Islamic Center of North Phoenix, was named as Ahmad's replacement.

Mayor Phil Gordon was behind the decision to remove Ahmad, saying that he delivers a message of intolerance against Israel and the Jewish community when the commission's mission is to promote respect and understanding among all groups.

Good. Some anti-dhimmi behavior from a major city mayor and was right to remove Ahmad from the commission. Ahmad publishes the Multicultural Yellow Pages, which excludes references to the Valley's Jewish cultural institutions and replaces Israel with the name Palestine on a Middle East map.

Gordon, who regularly meets with members of the Muslim community, said that "serving on the Human Relations Commission is a privilege, not a right." Hani Rahal, a member of a Muslim coalition, said, "People should not be removed from their positions because of their political views."

Excuse me! If you are on a commission to improve human relations, there is not room for bigoted political opinion.

Storm Track Intimidation: Journalists on Trial for Insulting Muslims

Two Azerbaijani journalists accused of inciting religious hatred with an article that criticized Islam went on trial Monday, both accusing authorities of waging a politically motivated prosecution.

The case against reporter Rafiq Tagi and editor Samir Huseinov has touched a nerve in Azerbaijan, a mostly Muslim, ex-Soviet republic with a government that has little tolerance for independent media.

One downside to winning the Cold War was the freedom of radical Muslims to pursue the Islamist agenda in their countries. Azerbaijani is a prime example and shows that when Islamists take control of a country, it quickly devolves into a 13th century society.

Tagi's November article in the small newspaper Senet, edited by Huseinov, asserted that Islam has suffocated people, pulled them away from freedom and hindered humanity's development, and said the Prophet Muhammad created problems for Eastern countries.

That’s what you get for telling the truth in a Muslim country where freedom of speech is not tolerated and radical Islam is in control.

The article sparked angry protests - including calls for Tagi's death - in a village near Baku whose conservative Muslim community has clashed with the authoritarian government. The case has also deepened concerns about freedom of speech in the oil-rich country. Tagi, who was brought into the court in handcuffs, said he committed no crime.

"My article - this was purely artistic, a literary discussion and for words one must only answer with words. It is illegal to imprison someone for their convictions," he told the court. Huseinov told the court his constitutional rights had been violated and that authorities were trying to portray him as not being Muslim.

Right. If you’re a Muslim and criticize Muslims or Islam you are not really a Muslim and can be ignored, or worse yet, persecuted. This circular logic was used recently as a response to the secular Muslim conference in Florida.

The trial was expected to be closely watched in the West, which is interested in Azerbaijan because of its vast oil and gas wealth and its strategic position between Iran and Russia.

Of course human rights can be of no interest in the West unless the international human rights organizations can pin violations on only Western nations.

Storm Track Intimidation: Muslims Declare Muslims Non-Muslims

More of the tolerance of Islam – NOT!! Hat tip to Sugiero.

Pakistani police bulldozers have demolished the perimeter wall of a cemetery belonging to the “blasphemous” Armadiya community, despite the fact that it had been built according to laws regulating privately bought property. Local Ahmadis believe the operation was a result of a campaign started by extremist clerics and Religious organizations that had said the fencing of the graveyard was an attempt to create a mini city of Ahmadiya Community in Lahore.

Oh, we can’t have that. It would soil the purity of the Muslim community.

According to intergralist Muslims, the Ahmadiya sect is heretical, in so far as it declares itself to be Muslim but does not recognise Mohammed as the last prophet; as a result the community is subjected to persecution, not only in Pakistan but also in Bangladesh and Indonesia.

It seems that in certain parts of the Muslim world, they can’t get the god straight.

On 15 April, a group of Mullahs signed a “contract” with the local population stating that they would not allow a “mini city of Ahmadis”. A statement released by the community reports that these Mullahs are from outside the area of Handu Gujjar [the Lahore quarter were the demolition occurred] which has always been a peaceful area with a high level of inter-communal harmony”.

This is another example of the Islamist insurgency of a moderate Muslim community to wage their jihad.

Raja Ghalab Ahmad, secretary general, Lahore Ahamdiyya Community told AsiaNews: “It is a common practice that people mark boundary walls to protect their open. No-one notified us of the demolition, because we are Ahmadis. It is clear to me that the government has caved in to fundamentalist pressure”. Normally, he explains, “the local government provides lands for cemeteries. But since 1974 when Ahmadis were declared non Muslims; this privilege has been denied our community, throughout the entire country.

Declared a non-Muslim? Declared by whom? And why should the Pakistani government support such a declaration? This is more proof that despite Musharraf’s insistence and guarantees to President Bush that he is resisting the radical elements in his country, the Islamist still seem to have the upper hand in Pakistan.


Storm Track Intimidation: From Toons to Tostitos – The Frito-Lay Jihad!

First the Motoon blasphemy – now the sacrilegious corn chips. It seems that Muslims are getting all in a tizzy over the ingredients in the popular Frito-Lay Mexican chip. Hat tip to JammieWearingFool.

From around the world, Muslims have been calling up Frito-Lay, inquiring about their products after learning of possible pork enzymes in their cheese seasonings. Muslim students and professionals, in response, started email campaigns, wrote on their blogs, and some even created groups on the popular college-networking website, Facebook.

One group on Facebook, “Fight Against Pork in Frito-Lay Products,” has already accumulated over 1,810 students globally. Its moderator urged its members to “call whether [they] are for or against the change” and for them to inform Frito-Lay of their concerns.

Watch it Frito-Lay! You’re chips are in threat of crumbling.

The 'chip snit' has generated some deep thinking about being Muslim.

Some Muslims, however, have opted out of the “contact Frito-Lay” bandwagon and have instead questioned their fellow Muslims’ concerns and actions. On one blog, one Muslim woman wrote on April 3, 2007, I wonder how many of those people who called Doritos called their local congressman about their opinion of the war? Or to have a fair trial for Dr. Sami Al-Arian? How many of these thought to affect change on more important matters? I mean, if the food is not permissible to eat, I would like to know. But the reaction and the larger context really irks me.”

One Muslim man responded back to her on that same blog, “The reason people are worked up…number of us have been eating Frito-lay products since we were little kids.”

So much for the politics. Now the science.

I spoke to Frito-Lay spokeswoman Aurora Gonzalez to get the record straight. She informed me that Frito-Lay has been aware of this discussion and are “respectful” of those who do not consume pork enzymes.

She told me, “Most cheeses are made using enzymes as part of the process to develop unique flavors, and depending on the flavor, enzyme sources may include vegetable, microbial and/or animal. Pork enzymes may be used in the milk that makes the real cheese for some of our cheese seasonings.” “However,” she said, “by the time the cheese seasoning arrives at Frito-Lay, the animal enzymes have been physically changed by heat to be inactive long before being added to our snacks.”

But you can bet that some Muslims will still consider such foods Haram (forbidden). So let’s see, what should Frito-Lay do. I know! Let’s do the accommodation dance.

Could there be a new market for Muslims in the near future? Will Frito-Lay’s manufacturers and importers consider placing a halal logo on its snack foods that do not contain pork enzymes for its Muslim consumers? If its products contain animal substances, will Frito-Lay consider becoming halal certified by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (or JAKIM)?

And what about the poor kosher Jews. Who cares about them, right? They’ll just have to settle for Morgan David and wine Manoschevitz foods.

Muslim-American Seton Hall University student, Ibrahim Khaddash, in New Jersey, told me he feels “paranoid” ever since he heard about Frito-Lay’s pork-enzyme-containing products and said, “Muslims need to somehow let these big organizations know that if they want our business then they must obey our dietary laws.”

Catch that word, Frito-Lay? ‘OBEY’? Learn it. Along with this one. Dhimmitude.

Storm Track Intimidation: Dutch Politico Accused of Not Playing Nice with Muslims

Holland’s leadership is starting to wake up to the Islamist threat facing their country. The response from the Dutch dhimmis? Now, now. Let’s place nice.

Geert Wilders the head of the "Dutch Party for Freedom," claims he was "intimidated" by Netherlands’ Counter Terrorism Coordinator Tjibbe Joustra who "recommended" that he tone down his criticism of Islam. Wilders' recent remarks that Muslims should "tear out half of the Koran, if they wanted to live in Holland" sparked an uproar in the Muslim world. According to Wilders, Tjibbe asked "can't this be done differently?"

But the Islamists in Holland have responded less politely.

Wilders' is under constant police protection as a result of numerous death threats issued against him by Islamists ["the Dutch MP and controversial critic of Islam, has two policemen by his side even when in his high-security parliamentary office in case someone tries to decapitate him. Each day, he does not know where he is going to sleep that night, as he is taken from safe house to safe house in a convoy of armored cars.

All this has got an Iranian Ayatollah’s burka in a bunch.

Responding to the MP's statements, Iranian Ayatollah Noori Hamedi has called for a boycott of Dutch products and demanded that the country's ambassador be recalled from Holland. Another cleric has called for Wilders' death, declaring a fatwa against him.

The controversy has exposed fissures within the Dutch government, with Parliament demanding an explanation from Justice Minister Hirsh Ballin, saying that it is unacceptable to deny Wilders his freedom of speech.

Hmmm…free speech. What a unique idea. At least some dhimmis have grown a spine in Holland.

Storm Track Intimidation: Muslims Offended Again – This Time in South Africa

It never ceases to amazes me how Muslims, no matter where they are located, find something to be offended by and why we should care. On the negative side they are a constant source of irritation. On the positive side they are a constant source of morbid entertainment.

It seems the Muslim Judicial Council of South Africa is all a tizzy over the annual Matric Ball – the SA version of our Prom.

Matric balls, whether hosted during the month of Ramadan or not, are not endorsed by Islam, says the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC).

The statement comes after weekend reports that Muslim pupils at the South African College Schools (SACS) were up in arms over their school's decision to host the function in Islam's holiest month.

The school is now revisiting its decision to host its matric farewell on September 15 - two days into Ramadaan, and a new date will be set, according to reports.

But that’s not enough for the stifled Muslims.

Appleby said the issue was not whether the matric ball was hosted during the month of Ramadaan, but that matric balls were not endorsed within the Islamic faith…..He said that, from a religious perspective, matric balls were not endorsed by the clergy for numerous reasons.

These included a non-Islamic dress code, possible exposure to alcohol, intermingling of male and female students, intimate dancing, the atmosphere and the dangers associated with the after-party. He said that matric balls were "frowned upon" within Islam.

"Its entire format or its unfolding, the whole theme of extravagance and the utilising of funds for one evening, generally goes against Islamic teachings, or is not promoted or encouraged."


Oh God forbid that the youngsters who worked so hard to graduate should have little fun celebrating their achievement.


It's more about the complexities of living in society or relating to what is considered sacred. It's not about the month, it's about applying the laws to their personal lives. People need to remember that, when they look at the laws of Islam, they need to be respected."

Weekend reports said that out of 159 SACS matriculants more than 25 Muslim pupils would have to choose between the farewell and their faith.

But after an intervention from the Western Cape education minister, Cameron Dugmore, the date of the dance will be changed to accommodate Muslim pupils.

This change will mean finding an alternative venue for the matric ball as the school hall is booked a year in advance for a range of activities.

It’s the same old thing. Accommodate the Muslims and inconvenience the rest of us. But the god of multiculturalism must once again be appeased.

Storm Track Intimidation: Anti-Jihadist Author Sued by Canadian University

Dr. Paul Williams is a noted for outing jihadists in on midst and those that support them through his books - Dunces of Doomsday: 10 Blunders That Gave Rise to Radical Islam, Terrorist Regimes, and the Threat of an American Hiroshima – and just recently The Day of Islam. Now he is being sued for one of his revelations.

McMaster University has brought against him for investigating Islamic terrorists at McMaster. Why? Consider the following.

1. McMaster has harbored leading al Qaeda operatives, including Adnan el-Shukrijumah, Jaber A. Elbaneh, Abderraouf Jdey, and Amer el-Maati. This finding was a result of the interrogation of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, who was taken into custody in Karachi by ISI officials on March 3, 2003. A BOLO for these operatives was issued by former US Attorney General John Ashcroft and FBI director Robert Mueller on March 21, 2004. A reward of $5 million has been posted for each of these agents. Adnan el Shukrijumah has been described by the US Justice Department as "the next Mohammad Atta" who has been commissioned to commandeer the next attack on U.S. soil. McMaster is an ideal location for these operatives to study since it houses a 5 megawatt nuclear reactor, one of the largest reactors for educational purposes in the western hemisphere. The first account of these operatives at McMaster was written by Bill Gertz of "The Washington Times" in a piece entitled "Al Qaeda Pursued a Dirty Bomb." It appeared on October 17, 2003 and remains posted on the internet. Subsequent and considerably more substantial articles appeared on DEBKA, the Israeli intelligence website -

Go to Insight at this site for additional information:

2. When the operatives left McMaster, 180 pounds of nuclear material was reported missing. The story of the missing waste was first reported by John Loftus of WABC News on November 7, 2003. This story also remains on the internet. McMaster has insisted that no material was ever missing from the reactor but radiological material was reported missing from their pharmacological and medical facilities. The matter of the missing material was mentioned by Attorney Janice L. Kephart of the 9/11 Commission in an address before the House Committee on the Judiciary entitled "The Need to Implement WHIT to Protect Homeland Security. This address is also accessible on the internet.

3. The College of Engineering at McMaster contains an over-abundance of professors from terror-sponsoring countries. In the Division of Earthquake Engineering, 9 out of 10 faculty members are from the Universities of Cairo and Alexandria. Similarly, the three full-professors at the College of Engineering all hail from The University of Cairo. Ditto the Dean, Vice President, and the Department Head of the same department. Jane Corbin of BBC points out in her book on al Qaeda that the engineering department at the University of Cairo remains under the control of the "Syndicate." The Syndicate, or Trade Union of Engineers, has always been a stronghold of the Muslim Brotherhood.

4. Members of the Ontario Provincial Police have confirmed that McMaster has been under scrutiny for a long time; that many of the students have ties to radical Islam and terrorist organizations; and that Islamic members of the faculty have conducted clandestine meetings at an off-campus address in Hamilton.

5. Egyptian Islamic websites affirm the presence of jihadists at McMaster, verify reports that professors within the Faculty of Engineering at McMaster are members of the Muslim Brotherhood, and that the university may be the epicenter for the next terrorist attack on American soil.

6. Hundreds of postings on the internet calling for the jihad and the nuclear destruction of America have been traced back to McMaster. Many of the postings have been made by a graduate student at McMaster who transports dangerous goods for the Canadian government.

7. Two of the terrorists who were taken into custody in the plot to kill the Canadian Prime Minister and to blow up Parliament were students from McMaster.

8. Hamid Mir, the only journalist to interview Osama bin Laden in the wake of 9/11, has confirmed that Anas el-Liby, a founder of al Qaeda, attended McMaster and managed, along with other al Qaeda operatives, to steal 180 pounds of nuclear material from the poorly guarded facilities at the school.

For reporting these findings, Dr. Williams has been sued by McMaster University for $4 million plus punitive damages.

This suit has been allowed to proceed in Canadian court despite the fact that Dr. Williams is an American citizen who should be protected by the Bill of Rights and American law which stipulates that truth is an ultimate defense. The case, fuelled by Islamic contributions, represents the first attempt of an academic institution to limit the research of an academician, despite the fact that such research is vital for our national security. If he loses the case, the American people will be left in the dark and the American Hiroshima may become a reality.

We can’t let the Islamists succeed with their litigation jihad. Support Paul Williams in his battle against terror and injustice may be next!


Those are examples of the rising Jihad temperature of for this week. When seen in groups like this, the slow boil becomes obvious.
