Taking the Jihad Temperature - A Gathering Storm Special Series – INFILTRATION Part 4
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 intimidation, infiltration, disinformation 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.
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.
Storm Track Infiltration: American Children – Next Terrorist Target?
JR over at A Keyboard and a .45 recently wrote a chilling post. He speculated on some worrisome information and events that could lead to mass slaughter in our schools by terrorists.
Consider these points:
- According to two trainers at an anti-terrorism conference on the East Coast, preparations for attacks on American schools that will bring rivers of blood and staggering body counts are well underway in Islamic terrorist camps.
- The intended attackers have bluntly warned us they’re going to do it.
- They’re already begun testing school-related targets here.
- They’ve given us a catastrophic model to train against, which we’ve largely ignored and they’ve learned more deadly tactics from.
According to an article from PoliceOne.com, “We don’t know for sure what they will do. But by definition, a successful attack is one we are not ready for,” declared one of the instructors, Lt.Col. Dave Grossman. Our schools fit that description to a “T”—as in Terrorism and Threat.”
How do we know that the terrorist are targeting our schools? Todd Rassa, a trainer with the
Al-Qaeda has publicly asserted the “right” to kill 2,000,000 American children, Rassa explained, and has warned that “operations are in stages of preparation” now. He played vivid videotapes confiscated in
, showing al-Qaeda terrorists practicing the takeover of a school. The trainees issue commands in English, rehearse separating youngsters into manageable groups and meeting any resistance with violence. Some “hostages” are taken to the rooftop, dangled over the edge, then “shot.” Afghanistan
In this country this year [’06], Rassa said, there have been several school bus-related incidents involving Middle Eastern males that raise suspicion of terrorist activity. These include the surprise boarding of a school bus in
Floridaby two men in trench coats, who may have been on a canvassing mission, and the attempt in by an Arab male to obtain a job as a school bus driver using fraudulent Social Security documents. The latter gave an address in New York State , home to a large colony of fundamentalist Muslims. Rassa claimed that floor plans for half a dozen schools in Virginia, Detroit Texasand New Jerseyhave been recovered from terrorist hands in . Iraq
A “dress rehearsal for what terrorists plan to do to us” has already taken place, Rassa and Grossman agreed. That was the brutal takedown in 2004 of a school that served children from 6 to 17 years old in
. Some 100 terrorists were involved, nearly half of whom were discreetly embedded in the large crowd of parents, staff and kids who showed up for the first day of school; the rest arrived for the surprise attack in SUVs, troop carriers and big sedans. Across a three-day siege, 700 people were wounded and 338 killed, including 172 youngsters. Beslan, Russia
What is the likely means of attack upon a school in the
Probably not so many terrorists involved at a single location. Moving that big a contingent into place would likely attract too much attention and thwart the attack. Grossman describes a more likely possibility, in his opinion: Terrorist cells of four operatives each will strike simultaneously at four different schools. They’ll probably pick middle schools with no police officers on site, where the girls are “old enough to rape” but students are not big enough to fight back effectively.
The targets will probably be in states “with no concealed-carry laws and no hunting culture” and in communities where “police do not have rifles.” Rural areas may be favored, where 30 minutes or more could be required for responders to arrive in force.
The attackers will “mow down every kid and teacher they see” as they move in to seize the school. They’ll plant bombs throughout the buildings, and “ rape, murder and throw out bodies like they did in
In all, 100 to 300 children could be slaughtered in a first strike. Terrorists capable of this are already embedded in communities “all over
Does Hezbollah ring a bell?
Storm Track Infiltration: Jihad in
I’m writing more and more about the different types of Jihads that we face in this struggle with Islamism.
Now, a new book by Steven Emerson, Jihad Incorporated: A Guide to Militant Islam in the U.S.” puts some muscle and flesh to the bones of this theory. Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch reviews the book.
Are you aware of the al Qaeda plot to assassinate President Bush that was uncovered in 2005? Did you know that jihad terrorists in the
U.S.financed the 1993 bombing partially through the sale of counterfeit T-shirts? Did you know that a professor at the University of South Florida in the 1990s was one of the international leaders of the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad and that he used his university activities as a cover while he raised money, gained recruits and disseminated propaganda for the jihad group? Had you heard that in May 2003, an American citizen living in World Trade Center Ohiopled guilty to conducting surveillance of the and other potential targets for al Qaeda? Brooklyn Bridge
These were not isolated incidents. In fact, they are just a few of the known activities of a huge jihad network that still operates in the United States, but of which few Americans are aware……..in his book [he] lays out evidence that jihadists are pursuing their goal of Islamic supremacism in myriad ways in America today, including through “advocacy groups, an array of disingenuous charities and foundations, corporate financing networks, and the halls of academia.” He and the staffers of his Investigative Project on Terrorism explain how al Qaeda continues to operate on our soil even after 9/11, how its operational strategy has evolved since then, and the extent of its American network.
Spencer knows his stuff.
But al Qaeda, of course, is not the only jihad organization operating on American soil today. Emerson explores the activities of many of them, including their actions within American mosques, their operations through charitable organizations and through the Internet and their involvement in money-laundering activities that allow terror financing to continue virtually unimpeded. At the same time, [Emerson] chronicles how American Muslim advocacy groups in
This is just what I’ve been saying. We’re so focused on the misnamed ‘war on terror’ that we are missing the more insidious jihadist tactics - the gathering storm of squalls, gales and tempests - that are less visible and less understood being practiced right under our noses.
Every anti-jihadist should read this book. I will.
Storm Track Infiltration: British Intelligence or Keystone Cops
Associated press reported that a third terror suspect absconds in Britain.
A terror suspect under police surveillance has disappeared,
I guess state-of –the-art surveillance technology is not one of
The suspect, whose identity is protected by an anonymity order, absconded earlier this month, Reid said. The man was the third terror suspect to disappear while being monitored under the control order.
Reid's announcement came as the government faced criticism for another Keystone Cop blunder.
On Sunday, the government said it was ordering a review of all criminal databases after acknowledging that files on hundreds of criminals were not entered into police computers. The government insists the mistake -- caused by a backlog in processing EU records at
Right. They just don’t know where they are.
Reid took over at the Home Office in May after former Home Secretary Charles Clarke's dismissal when it was revealed that foreign criminals were released from prisons without being considered for deportation.
So, did it get better?
On Tuesday, David Davis of the opposition Conservative Party, said: "Far from getting a grip since John Reid took over, the Home Office has been marked by murderers walking out of open prisons and suspected terrorists escaping from control orders."
So goes the state of

We notice that CAIR is featuring a list of "Top 10 CAIR Highlights of 2006" on their front page this New Year's Eve, so we thought we would remind our readers of what CAIR would prefer people not to remember about the year that was.
TROP's TOP 15 CAIR LOWLIGHTS of 2006
CAIR supports Sami al-Arian, who then pleads guilty to assisting Islamic terrorists.
CAIR goes to the mat for Iranian President Khatami, a noted anti-Semite and Hezbollah's chief sponsor.

CAIR is forced into a hasty site-makeover to remove prominent anti-Semitic articles after a Muslim goes on a deadly shooting rampage at a
Jewish center. Seattle
CAIR denounces the pope's comments a dozen times, but not once the Muslim murder of an elderly nun (or the hundreds of other Christians butchered in the name of Islam in 2006).
CAIR is snubbed by liberal Senator Barbara Boxer, who rescinds an award to a CAIR official after finding out about the group's ties to terror.
CAIR condemns cartoons, but refuses to condemn Osama Bin Laden for a fifth straight year.
CAIR ruins Keith Ellison's Congressional career before he takes office.

CAIR is forced to drop their lawsuit against Anti-CAIR for calling it a terrorist front organization after realizing that it is one.
CAIR condemns the brief arrest of Hamas leaders in Gaza, but not the forced conversion of two
journalists (nor 2,276 acts of Islamic terror in 2006 that resulted in the loss of innocent life). U.S.
CAIR fails to acknowledge the victims of 9/11 on the fifth anniversary of the attacks, choosing to mark it instead with a spasm of self-pity.
CAIR condemns the Israeli "massacre" of Palestinian civilians, then has to retract its statement after finding out that they were actually killed by Palestinian explosives.
CAIR protests when a woman is asked to lower her veil at Heathrow airport the day before it is revealed that a Muslim cop-killer escaped through the airport using the veil as a disguise (CAIR then stays quiet as Heathrow implements a full ban on veils.)
Maybe these ol’ acquaintances should NOT be forgotten.

Nike is enraged that such a thing is happening with their product. Right? Nope, the little dhimmis are fooled again.
BTW, even though Muslims frequently counterfeit Nike products for terrorism financing, that hasn't stopped Nike from providing free Nike T-shirts to CAIR. It's a practice that began long ago when the group whined that a Nike design on a shoe looked like the Arabic for "Allah." It's been free Ts to CAIR from the

Storm Track Infiltration: Malaysian Muslims March Towards Islamism
is a moderate and generally tolerant country. It does not persecute its religious minorities, and it has developed successfully economically so that it can just about be considered a middle-class society. Certainly it is vastly more successful and wealthy than it was 20 years ago. If there's a Muslim population anywhere that should feel happy and content it is in Malaysia . Successful, increasingly rich, Islam afforded a special status in the constitution, Malays given substantial financial, educational, housing and other preferences, persecuted by no one, they should be among the least paranoid people in the Muslim world. Malaysia
But the results of a new poll of Malaysian Muslims say otherwise. Here are the highlights.
- 73 per cent of Malays, if they could choose only one identity, would choose Muslim first, only 14 per cent would choose Malaysian while 13 per cent would choose Malay. So Islam trumps citizenship, which only just edges out ethnicity.
- 77 per cent believe Malaysians should be allowed to choose their own religion but this is contradicted by a massive 98 per cent believing that Malaysian Muslims should not be allowed to change their religion. Freedom of religion means you don't have to convert to Islam, but if you are a Muslim you should have no right under the law to change your religion under any circumstances. This belief is very widespread throughout the Muslim world.
- 73 per cent said their parents had had the greatest influence on their development as Muslims, an encouraging sign of the strength of indigenous Malay traditions as opposed to contemporary
- 49 per cent thought the Malaysian Government sufficiently Islamic, but almost as many, 47 per cent, thought it was not sufficiently Islamic.
- 77 per cent do not want
Malaysiato become an Islamic state like Iran, but 18 per cent do want Malaysiato become an Islamic state like . Iran
- 57 per cent say Islam and politics should be separate but a substantial 40 per cent say they should be mixed.
- 57 per cent do not want strict hudud laws (stoning for adultery, and so on) implemented in
but 32 per cent do want hudud laws. Malaysia
- 60 per cent say non-Muslims should not be subject to hudud laws but nearly a third, 28 per cent, actually want hudud laws to apply to non-Muslims. Similarly, some 31 per cent want sharia (Islamic law) to replace the Malaysian constitution.
- 77 per cent, a staggering figure, believe that
's existing sharia laws (which govern family matters for Muslims) are not strict enough. Malaysia
- 76 per cent believe men and women in Islam have equal rights.
- 57 per cent believe wives could disobey husbands to work, but 47 per cent say if the husband forbids work, the wife should obey.
- 97 per cent, encouragingly, believe it is acceptable to live alongside non-Muslims and 79 per cent believe Malays should learn about other religions.
- 62 per cent believe suicide bombings are wrong but a disturbing 12 per cent (the exact
's estimated range) support it. mid-pointof Pipes
- 1 per cent like the

Storm Track Infiltration: Muslim Activism By The Numbers
Remember that tiny majority of Mulsim who do not support the Islamist agenda? Not so tiny if you look at the total picture.
It's just a small fringe, a marginal few at best, they tell us, so don't worry about it all too much. One percent or three percent - who cares? Just sit back, enjoy your morning eggs and coffee and have a nice day. But a look at the numbers tells a very different story. The extent of support for global jihad is frightening in its proportions, and the numbers are anything but insignificant.
Let’s run those numbers.
In a poll conducted five months ago, and broadcast on
Britain's Channel 4 TV, nearly 25% of British Muslims said the July 7, 2005, terror bombings in , which killed 52 innocent commuters, were justified. Another 30% said they would prefer to live under strict Islamic Sharia law rather than London 's democratic system. England
Now, one in four justifying terror may not be a majority, but it certainly isn't a "small fringe" either.
In other countries, the figures are no less unsettling. A survey published in December found that 44% of Nigerian Muslims believe suicide bombing attacks are "often" or "sometimes" acceptable. Only 28% said they were never justified.
According to the annual Pew Global Attitudes Survey, released in July 2006, "roughly one-in-seven Muslims in
France, Spainand feel that suicide bombings against civilian targets can at least sometimes be justified to defend Islam." The report also found that less than half of Great Britain 's Muslims believe terror attacks are never justified. In Jordan , only 45% of Muslims say terror is never justified. Egypt
Still hold the position that a tiny minority is responsible for terrorism and violence or support the Islamist agenda? Then consider this.
On the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, a survey conducted by Al-Jazeera asked respondents, "Do you support Osama Bin-Laden?" A whopping 49.9% answered: yes.
And the July 2006 global Pew survey found that among Muslims, a quarter of Jordanians, a third of Indonesians, 38% of Pakistanis and 61% of Nigerians all expressed confidence in the mass murderer who founded al-Qaida.
Lebanonsix months ago, the for Research and Information found that over 80% of the Lebanese population said they supported Hizbullah. Beirut Center
And do I need also to mention that a majority of Palestinians backed Hamas in parliamentary elections last year?
And what about the non-Arab world? Surely the success of
As Reuters reported on October 15, just 10 percent of Indonesian Muslims said they backed jihad and supported bomb attacks on the
So what do the numbers tell us? That terrorism is the only jihad that the Islamists use to advance their agenda of Islamatizing the world?
The figures above, taken from a variety of nations, continents and contexts, all point in one very ominous direction. They demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that the global jihadist movement enjoys a wide and broad base of support that extends far beyond just a minuscule number of supporters.
And that far beyond includes the many different types of jihads used by the Islamists – media, litigation, financial, economic, demographic and cultural jihads.
The threat posed by Islamic fundamentalism to
When will we ever get the nerve to actually NAME the enemy? For without that, we can to create strategies to confront and defeat the different jihads that they use.
Those are examples of the rising Jihad temperature of for this week. When seen in groups like this, the slow boil becomes obvious.
