Taking the Jihad Temperature - A Gathering Storm Special Series – DISINFORMATION 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 intimidationinfiltrationdisinformation and those appeasers 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 DISINFORMATION !! And remember – this is just a sampling of Jihadist Disinformation. More to follow.


Storm Track Disinformation: Smear Tactics of Appeasers Against Islamist Resistance in Denmark.

Much has been written about the Islamafication of Europe but resistance has so far been either non-existent, in collusion with the Islamists or generally non-violent when it does occur. But an Anti-Jihad organization called "Stop the Islamisation of Denmark” has kindled another crisis.

In Denmark, the chairman of the extreme rightist association that wants the enforcement of a ban on the Koran, claiming it has violent content, has now founded an organization of 'armed fighting with Muslims against Jihad.'

The publication of the Prophet Mohammad caricatured as a terrorist in a Danish newspaper in 2005 led to the uprising of Muslims. Within the passing time, the caricature crisis has settled; however, the Islam-Christianity fight and racist approaches have started to rise.

Anders Gravers, who filed a complaint against the Koran containing violence, has established an organization named "Stop the Islamisation of Denmark," which has kindled another crisis.

According to a smear campaign orchestrated by the Danish newspaper Nyhedsavisen.

Gravers has founded an association "Anti-Jihad" in Denmark and has said they will have an armed fight against Muslims. The group is made up of SIAD, Frit Danmark, Nationale Danskere, I Media, og Frie Danske Nationalister. The new entity is trying to gather the other extreme rightist foundations under the same roof.


This is not true according to On the Wing and Gates of Vienna.

The article describes this collection of non-political associations as being armed and dangerous and colours them as extreme right wing fanatics. All of that is simply not true. Furthermore, the article by "journalist" Rune Eltard-Sørensen, also states that the Center for Vigilant Freedom formed the group. Which is also not true.


SIAD chairman Anders Gravers has of course replied. Here are some excerpts of the letter.

"Armed network will stop Islam in Denmark" is full of misrepresentation and lies.

Firstly, the title in itself is a direct lie. The Anti-jihad movement is not armed. During a telephone interview on the 7th May the SIAD Chairman clearly stated that Anti-jihad operates only within the framework of the law, as Rune Eltard-Sørensen was clearly interested in this and was this the case?

The subtitle in the article states: "With loaded weapons and support from abroad, a newly formed extreme right wing group will set the agenda concerning the debate on immigration". As mentioned before, there are no weapons in the Anti-jihad movement. Anti-jihad is neither left, right nor middle orientated. We have no political agenda as such, in that we are broadspectered and have only one goal, That is, to stop the islamisation of Denmark. To call us right wing extremists is a direct lie.

Further in the article is stated: "On saturday Anti-jihad will take to the streets and demonstrate for "more freedom for citizens - less control over gangs". The initiative is aimed at concentrating the debate on immigration". Once again, a lie. Our slogan is "more freedom for citizens - more control over gangs", which can be clearly read on our website, www. siad.dk


When you can’t win a debate with your opponent then lie. The leftist controlled media in Eurabia has that tactic down pat.

Storm Track Disinformation: Orthodox or Moderate, Islamist Ideology is Still the Same

A recent leftist rant in BlogCritics Magazine tried – again – to place the radicalization of Muslims on our attempts to defend ourselves against the Salafist elements of Islam. What the writer fails to understand is that it’s not Salafist or any other orthodox form of Islam that threatens our world today but the ideology that individual Muslims hold that poses the danger.

In other words, not all branches of fundamental Islam advocate violence, but all contribute to the process of radicalization. The article is perfect example of this willful or unconscious misunderstanding. It’s just and another form of disinformation that Islam’s useful idiots spew on a daily basis.

This is from Asma Khalid, a Muslim woman pursuing her master's degree in Middle Eastern/Islamic studies at the University of Cambridge, England and proves my point. The ignorance of her position is telling.

I am a Muslim who embraces peace. But, if we must attach stereotypical tags, I'd rather be considered "orthodox" than "moderate." "Moderate," in this context, implies that Muslims who are more orthodox are somehow backward and violent and that, in our current cultural climate, progress and peace are restricted to "moderate" Muslims. To be a "moderate" Muslim is, thus, to be a "good," malleable Muslim in the eyes of Western society.


Notice her choice of words – a moderate must be a “malleable Muslim”. By malleable does she mean adhering to modern concepts of personal freedoms, civil rights, and secular government? I think so because…

True orthodoxy is simply the attempt to adhere piously to a religion's tenets.


In her eyes do those religious tenets supersede the hard earned Western tenets of freedom and democracy? And by supporting her fundamental orthodox Salafist religious tenets, tenets that drives Muslim violence throughout the world, isn’t she contributing to the process of radicalization? Ms. Khalid, the end result of your pious adherence to your religious tenets leads to this. From the Pedestrian Infidel.

In Malaysia, the JAKIM (Islamic Affairs Department or the dreaded Morality Police) arrest people for kissing. Then they steal dead bodies from their grieving families. Then they harass foreign tourists in the middle of the night and demand 'proof of religion' documentation. And they hold innocent people indefinitely on the grounds of "religious rehabilitation." Now, Malaysia's Taliban has opted for a new 'enforcement tactic' - the kidnapping of entire families.


The writer of the article ends her diatribe against America’s need for self-defense with this showing of her unbelievable defense of extremism.

If the U.S. wants to continue fighting every Muslim who does not fall into their category as a moderate Muslim, either because they follow a particular strand of the religion or don't agree with the U.S.' actions in and policies for Muslim countries, then they will be fighting forever. I just hope they realize that having an extreme belief in true Islam does not make you a terrorist, before a "clash of civilizations" becomes a dreadful reality.


BUZZ!! WRONG!! It’s not an extreme belief in true Islam that makes a Muslim the enemy of modern civilization but the ideology of Islamism that he or she holds that distinguishes them as a Jihadist – either the violent or non-violent kind.

In a nutshell – it’s the ideology, stupid!

 

Storm Track Disinformation: What The Left Has Not Learned From History

The attempts at painting parallels of imperialism between current day America and the colonial powers of old is a common theme among the Left who continuously apologize for real imperialism conducted under the banner of Marxism and Communism and their poster child Stalin and his ilk.

The latest attempt that’s getting wide fawning by the MSM is a recent book by William Dalrymple entitled The Last Mughal: The Fall of a Dynasty, Delhi, 1857. What’s telling about the book is the conspicuous analysis of the revolt in Muslim vs Christian terms and the utter lack of morals displayed by the Left in service to their neurotic belief in modern day American imperialism that see the free market of capitalism as imperialistic.

Briefly, what started as an act of defiance by some Indian soldiers who refused to use rifle bullets said to be greased with beef and pork fat (a rumor never substantiated spread by anti-British agents) quickly became a popular rebellion against the British East India Company that ruled most of India. Muslims consider pork unclean while Hindus view the cow as holy.

Dalrymple uses this historic rebellion as a tool to berate America’s recent foray into Iraq.

It is one thing to conquer a country. It is quite another to stay there and try to force-feed your ideas to a part of the world that has its own traditions.


And what are the ‘traditions’ that needed to be defended. In his article in Time magazine Dalrymple is sparse on his explanation yet what he does say is telling.

What lay behind the uprising? The British, through the East India Company, had been trading in India since the early 17th century. But the commercial relationship changed toward the end of the 18th century as the authority of the Mughal Empire collapsed and a new group of conservatives came into power in London, determined to expand British ascendancy. Lord Wellesley, the British Governor-General from 1798 to 1805, called his new approach the Forward Policy. Wellesley made clear that he was determined to establish British dominance over all European rivals and believed it was better pre-emptively to remove hostile Muslim regimes that presumed to resist the West's growing power.


Notice how he casually throws out the term Muslim without defining what kind hostility or behavior those Muslim regimes represent. He does give a hint of it.

The Forward Policy soon developed an evangelical flavor; the plan was to impose not just British laws and technology on India but also British Christian values. That way India would be not only ruled but redeemed. Local laws that offended Christian sensibilities were abrogated. The burning of widows, for example, was banned.


Umm. Excuse me. Christian sensibilities? That sounds like Christian sensibilities are like being offended by wearing light colors in the winter months. And how about these Christian sensibilities being offended?

On the evening of Sunday 10 May 1857, 150 years ago next week, 300 mutinous sepoys from Meerut rose up against their officers. They shot as many as they could, then rode through the night to the old Mughal capital of Delhi, where there they massacred every Christian man, woman and child…..

And this comment – the most telling of all.

What is striking about so many of the proclamations coming out of the uprising's storm centre, Delhi, was the emphatically religious articulation that the rebels adopted.


A religious articulation. Know what that meant?

British men and women who had converted to Islam - and there were a surprising number of those in Delhi - were not hurt; but Indians who had converted to Christianity were cut down immediately.


Yes. Mr. Dalrymple, you are correct about how little history changes. But you are looking in the wrong direction. It’s Islam that has not changed and what we need to learn from and not the trumped up charges of Leftists that see America as an imperialist.

Storm Track Disinformation: The YouTube Jihad

Ever wonder why videos critical of Islam disappear from YouTube? This might be the answer. This email was circulated among YouTube users encouraging the formation of a private group to promote Islam through gaming YouTube's favorites system: Hat Tip to NewsBusters.

Date: May 14, 2007, 11:18 AM
Subject: salam

to all muslim brothers and sisters please read

Our Islamic videos will not get full attention unless they come in the top ranked videos in youtube. For this purpose we all Muslims have to rate the videos to 5 stars and have to add them to our favorites. This will not be achieved if we Muslim Youtubers are scattered, i.e., one muslim rating one video and other muslim rating another. So we have to be highly organized. We will do a massive campaign of focusing to rate a single video collectively at once, so that it can show up on the top videos at least in the “Today’s top videos” list.

Doing this job in an open broadcast or in a public group is not a good idea. So it should be done in a private group. I have made the private group with the name: Burn the Boats. The group URL is in accordance to its goal as:

http://www.youtube.com/group/actnow

How to act immediately?

1- If a memeber wants a video to rate 5 stars and to be added as favorite video and to add a comment in video, then he will send the video link as:

Good Video: [video link here.....]

2- If a memeber wants a video to rate to 1 star and as an inappropriate video, then he will send the video link as :

Bad Video: [video link here...]

(Link sender must mention if it should be rated as hatespeech or graphical violence etc.)

#### Please propagate this message to the youtubers who are confirmed to be Muslims. ###

Do not send this message to any person who you doubt if he is Muslim or not. Any brother/sister who wants an invitation to the group, he can send me a short personal message.

JazakAllah.


A search at YouTube for the name of this group reveals where the title comes from: Burn the Boats.

Tariq bin Ziyad, he led the muslims to conquer spain and bring islam to europe. With his back to the Mediterranean Sea and a seemingly overwhelming force in front of him, Tariq gave the unthinkable order to his men to ‘burn their boats.’ His army’s only means of escape.

Tariq’s strategy of burning his boats did three things. Firstly, he was now committed to either victory or death. Secondly, it caused his men to focus totally on the job at hand. Thirdly, it scared the hell out of the Spanish. What sort of crazy men burn their boats in the face of overwhelming odds?"


The Spanish scared? They probably laughed their asses off. Or perhaps this act of ‘craziness’ was sign of Muslim behavior to come – suicide in the name of Allah.

Storm Track Disinformation: Muslims to Free World – Broaden Your Concept of Democracy

Muslim intellectuals will go to no length to confuse the infidel. One such tactic to keep the infidel off balance is the constant comparison of Islam to democracy as if the two could coexist. But the Muslim intellectual always makes a semantic slip that shows the true nature of the misunderstanding between democracy and Islam.

"What is needed is a broadening of the concept of democracy and respect for other cultures and civilizations outside the narrow Western perspective," said Rashwan, who is the director of the Comparative Politics Unit at the Al Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies and editor-in-chief of Directory of World Islamic Movements.



First, who is Rashwan?

Islam and democracy are not mutually exclusive concepts, argues Diaa Rashwan, an Egyptian specialist on Islamist ideology and the Muslim Brotherhood.


Catch that? The Muslim Brotherhood. The very same Brotherhood that’s currently going to great lengths promoting itself as a democratic movement in Islam – the very same organization that is pursing a plan to Islamatize the world.

Back to the first quote – "What is needed is a broadening of the concept of democracy and respect for other cultures and civilizations outside the narrow Western perspective.” Excuse me! Broaden the concept of democracy? The narrow Western perspective? What is this clown talking about?

The definition of a true democracy is very simple.

1- It a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

2- It is a secular government separated ruled by under the laws of man while at the some time protecting one’s practice of their beliefs.

3- It is a government that protects the basic freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

A government ‘broadened’ to include the concepts of Islamic laws which Rashwan is referring to is no democracy at all.

And the usual Islamic demand.

"There is genuine desire for democracy in Egypt and Egyptians are politically moderate by nature, so there is little danger of Islamic fanaticism taking hold. But this democracy will not come at the expense of our culture and traditions and that is something the West has to accept."


And by cultural traditions he means the rule by Sharia Law and here’s why that’s antithetical to democracy.

Storm Track Disinformation: Oh, Please! Enough Already!

Like most bloggers, I skim the news everyday looking for content ideas for my daily posts. In the process, one can get pretty frustrated reading the almost daily bleating of the appeasers and apologists trying to explain the whys and wherefores of Islam like jihad does not mean ‘Holy War’, the myth of Muslim support for terror, and how the great majority of Muslims are moderate and do not support the Islamist agenda.

One article explains that the word ‘Jihad’ doesn’t mean Holy War but ‘striving’, while another article claims that Muslims do not support terror (74 percent of respondents in Indonesia agreed that terrorist attacks are "never justified"; in Pakistan, that figure was 86 percent; in Bangladesh, 81 percent – if true that means 26 percent of Muslims in Indonesia, 14 percent in Pakistan, and 19 percent in Bangladesh do support terror. If you take the hundreds of millions of Muslims in those areas, those percentages are pretty damn scary), and another article tries to show how the majority of Muslims are moderate yet is blind to the fact that they receive indirect support form the moderates.

Add the bellyaching of the left useful idiots who constantly try and misdirect the argument away for the ideology and claim ‘if only they weren’t so exploited by the decadent West we would have peace.’

Enough is enough!

First almost any religion including Christianity has had its period of violent proselytizing. Pointing to verses in the Bible as proof that Christianity teaches the love of your fellow man while Christians were slaughtering each other and anyone who disagreed with the ‘Word of God’ during the Middle Ages, was small comfort to those who live through the Thirty Years War and the Inquisition.

The problem is this. Though religions may be made by infallible holy men from heaven, they have to be lived out by average fallible human beings here in earth. Every Western religion teaches peace but their history shows that they will kill those who do not believe as they do to attain it. It’s not WHAT is written by the religion that’s important, but HOW the religion is practiced. So let’s stop talking of how Islam is this or Islam is that and look at how it is being practiced.

Today, the 21st century, Christians and Jews preach peace. The mouthpieces for Muslims preach war. It’s quite simple to see. Almost 95 percent of all conflict in the world today involve Muslims.

Get the picture.

Then we have the apologists who see the conflict not as the ideology of freedom against the ideology of Islamism but between the planet’s rich and poor.

The prime minister of Malasia, Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi, says attributing problems between the west and the Muslim world to a clash of civilizations diverts attention away from the real source of discontent. The key to stabilizing the Muslim world is to improve economic conditions and reduce the high levels of "poverty, illiteracy and unemployment"


If so, then answer me this. Why are the many other poverty stricken countries in the Caribbean, South and Central America, Africa. Etc. etc. not blowing themselves up for their God? Poverty isn’t driving those people to suicide bombings. How come Mr. Prime Minister? Because your argument doesn’t hold water.

So enough already. Its time the apologists and useful idiots cease trotting out the same old horse and get them to address the real problem.

It’s the ideology, stupid! The ideology that drives the Islamo-fascist agenda of Islamism. Find it, confront it and destroy it – wherever and whenever it is found.

Storm Track Disinformation: Terrorism? Much Ado About Nothing

“You are going to ignore this particular problem until it swims up and bites you on the ass.”

That quote from Matt Hooper in the movie Jaws pretty much foretells the outcome of the Left because of their beliefs about the war on terror. As I wrote in a previous blog, Who’s Really Creating Terrorists?

When you fight a WAR doesn’t the enemy create more foot soldiers to replace others that are killed? Didn’t Germany and Japan recruit more and more troops as the WAR progressed? But if you see this clash between the ideology of freedom and the ideology of tyranny as just a criminal issue than, of course, if crime increases your tactics are a failure. So since in the mind of the Left we are creating more criminals – i.e., terrorists – the struggle against radical Islam is a failure – right? But if we are fighting a WAR, it is not unreasonable to expect that more enemy troops will be recruited by the enemy for the conflict?

 

And the denial of war goes even further when terrorist plots are uncovered by the Government like the Fort Dix Six. Their response is Much Ado About Nothing.

The big story over the weekend involved the arrest of several men involved in an alleged conspiracy to destroy John F. Kennedy Airport in New York by igniting it’s jet fuel lines. Now that time has passed and questions can be raised, it’s not all that clear that this plot ever did, or could, amount to much of anything.


Or accuse the Government of Another Fake Terror Plot.

The New York Daily News on Monday carried five pages on the "plot," with a ludicrous front-page headline, "Evil Ate at Table Eight," promoting an inside interview with the Brooklyn waitress who served a meal to Russell Defreitas, whom the paper describes as the "mastermind" of the alleged plot, just before he was picked up by federal agents and police.

Yet the profile of Defreitas, a 63-year-old US citizen who emigrated from Guyana 25 years ago, hardly suggests a terrorist "mastermind." A former friend describes him as someone who, before becoming a Muslim, had declared himself a Rastafarian and grown dreadlocks. He recalled his involvement in various business schemes to ship air conditioners or refrigerators to Guyana, none of which ever came to anything.

"He couldn't even fix brakes," the former friend said. "He never built bombs."


How do you think this poo-pooing of terrorist plots would be reported by, let’s say the Huffington Post or Daily Kos, if it was uncovered back in 2000.

Huffington Post
January 13th, 2000

John Q. Liberal

Hot on the heals of the uncovering of the Millennium terrorist plot, the White House held a press conference today announcing the discovery of a second attempt to destroy the World Trade Towers. Authorities were also looking into an alleged addition to the plot to destroy the Pentagon and White House.

In an attempt to defer the current problems plaguing the illegal Bush Administration, the White House has dreamed up a lulu of a plot more like from a Hollywood screenplay than reality.

Now get this.

The plot is to use US airlines as cruise missiles and fly them into buildings. And how will the terrorists hijack these airlines? With box cutters! But it gets better.

The plot includes terrorists crossing our borders and taking flying lessons in the US. And this is the best part. They will inform the flight schools that they don’t want to learn to make these sophisticated pieces of technology take off or land. Only fly the plane!

Could you imagine the stupidity? “Um let me get this straight. You’re Middle-Eastern, you don’t want to graduate with a flying certificate. You don’t want to learn to take off or land, right? ‘Hello, FBI.’

This ‘joint operation’ is more like a comedy between the Marx Brothers and the Keystone Kops presented by an Administration to deter our attention from the worsening economy, growing poverty, stem cell research, and tax breaks for the rich.
Please, President Bush. Don’t insult our progressive intelligence. To paraphrase Sidney Falco at the end of Sweet Smell of Success, these Bushies have such contempt for people, it makes them stupid.


I’ll let Matt Hooper respond to such a post. “I'm not going to waste my time arguing with a man who's lining up to be a hot lunch.”


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

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 SigArms Academy and an advisory board member for The Police Marksman magazine, shared a full day’s agenda on the danger to U.S. schools at a recent three-day conference on terrorist issues, sponsored by the International Assn. of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (IALEFI) in Atlantic City.

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 Afghanistan, 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.”

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 Florida by two men in trench coats, who may have been on a canvassing mission, and the attempt in New York State by an Arab male to obtain a job as a school bus driver using fraudulent Social Security documents. The latter gave an address in Detroit, home to a large colony of fundamentalist Muslims. Rassa claimed that floor plans for half a dozen schools in Virginia, Texas and New Jersey have 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 Beslan, Russia. 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.

What is the likely means of attack upon a school in the United States?

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 Russia.” Emergency vehicles responding and children fleeing will be blown up by car bombs in the parking lot.

In all, 100 to 300 children could be slaughtered in a first strike. Terrorists capable of this are already embedded in communities “all over America,” Grossman and Rassa agreed. More will probably gain entry surreptitiously from Mexico, making southern California potentially a prime target.


Does Hezbollah ring a bell?

Storm Track Infiltration: Jihad in America

I’m writing more and more about the different types of Jihads that we face in this struggle with Islamism.

· Cultural jihad
· Economic jihad
· Demographic jihad
· Litigation jihad
· Institutional jihad
· Financial jihad
· Media jihad
· Thugery jihad
· Criminal jihad

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 World Trade Center 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 Ohio pled guilty to conducting surveillance of the Brooklyn Bridge and other potential targets for al Qaeda?

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 Washington have worked to impede law enforcement endeavors against these operations at virtually every step—raising questions about their own larger goals. And of course, these advocacy groups have benefited from friends in high places. “Homegrown plotters, sleeper cells, intolerant and hateful imams, and their domestic apologists,” Emerson explains, “all seek to undermine the foundations of this country through a variety of means: rhetoric, fund-raising, and violence.


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, Britain's top law-and-order official said on Tuesday. The suspect was being monitored under the so-called control order regime, British Home Secretary John Reid said in a written statement to parliamentarians. Under the program, suspects who have not been charged are released from custody but remain under observation and can be electronically tagged, kept under curfew, denied the use of telephones or the Internet, and prohibited from meeting outsiders.


I guess state-of –the-art surveillance technology is not one of Britain’s string suits these days.

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 Britain's Criminal Records Bureau -- did not lead to any violent or sexual offenders being cleared to work with vulnerable people, such as children.


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 Britain today.

As you can see, CAIR has been busy last year keeping relations up. But The Religion of Peace sees their highlights another way.

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 shamelessly exploits Rosa Parks' image for a measly $1000 scholarship, while adamantly refusing to condemn the Sudanese genocide against Black Africans in Darfur.

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 Seattle Jewish center.

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 refuses to denounce the killing of Americans by Islamic terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan.

CAIR promotes a list of "Fatwas against Terror" that actually includes advocates of Islamic terror.

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 U.S. journalists (nor 2,276 acts of Islamic terror in 2006 that resulted in the loss of innocent life).

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.

Storm Track Infiltration: Financial Jihad in Dearbornistan

So what’s new in our most Muslim of US cities? Debbie Schlussel reports on a financial jihad scheme in Dearbornistan.

When I first heard news reports in the Detroit media that an area man was caught with $240,000 worth of counterfeit Nikes, I figured the man must be a Muslim and wondered whether the media would mention his name. It's well known that counterfeit items--especially counterfeit cigarettes, rolling papers, and apparel--fund terrorism. In the Detroit area, the counterfeit items--including designer perfumes, viagra, and batteries--have been traced to Hezbollah funding schemes. But they also are linked to funds for HAMAS and Al-Qaeda.


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 Beaverton, Oregon shoe and apparel giant, ever since.

Storm Track Infiltration: August 1942 – Nazi Strategic Conference Held in Times Square – J. Edgar Hoover says, “That’s Cool.”

Ridiculous right? Can you see Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels, Hermann Goering and Martin Bormann holding a conference in New York to plan the next phase of the Nazi plan to take over the world and the FBI doing nothing to stop it – or the mains stream media even reporting it?

 

I say again, ridiculous right?

 

But that’s what’s happening in Australia. Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia, a Sunni group with terrorist ties that openly advocates overthrowing the Democratic Australian Government and replacing it with an Islamic caliphate is hosting a 'Khilafah Conference Program' on the 28th of January. ‘Khalīfah’ or Caliph is the term or title for the Islamic leader of the Ummah, or community of Islam. Khalīfah’ means "successor", that is, successor to the prophet Muhammad. Hat tip to the 910 Group.

 

Here’s the agenda of the conference.

Session 1

11:00am Talk1: The Khilafah is a Vital Obligation & the Ramifications of its abscence. Shiekh Issam Amera: Hizb ut-Tahrir Palestine

11:45am Video Presentation: The Khilafah is a Vital Issue

12:00pm Talk2: The method to re-establish the Islamic State - Following the prophetic Method. Br Ashraf Doureihi: Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia

12:45pm Duhr Prayer, Break & Refreshment

Session 2

1:30pm Talk 3: Potential Challenges after the re-establishment of the Khilafah. Dr Ismail Yusanto: Spokesperson: Hizb ut-Tahrir Indonesia

2:15pm Video Presentation: Hizb ut-Tahrir Past & Present

2:30pm Talk 4: 21st Century: Islam or Capitalism? Sister Maryam Brack: Hizb ut-Tahrir, Australia

3:15pm Question and Answer Session

That’s right, they are planning the return of the 'Khilafah right in the belly of a non-Muslim nation knowing that the infidels will not do a thing to stop them. But then again this is Australia, the land of PM Howard. Maybe, just maybe, something will be done about this conference.

Storm Track Infiltration: Malaysian Muslims March Towards Islamism

“If the camel gets his nose into the tent, the whole body will follow.”
– An Old Arab Proverb. 

Along with Turkey, Malaysia has been looked upon as an example of a moderate Muslim state. But that is changing and the secular vision of Malaysia is being faced with the ‘writing on the wall’. I’ve written about the threat of Islamism to Malaysia’s secular society before - now more proof of the countries endangered future.

Malaysia 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.


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 Middle East influences.
  • 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 Malaysia to become an Islamic state like Iran, but 18 per cent do want Malaysia to 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 Malaysia but 32 per cent do want hudud laws.
  • 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 Malaysia's existing sharia laws (which govern family matters for Muslims) are not strict enough.
  • 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 mid-point of Pipes's estimated range) support it.
  • 1 per cent like the US, 45 per cent dislike it and 39 per cent hate the US.
  • 3 per cent like Europe, 38 per cent dislike it and 19 per cent hate Europe.
  • 4 per cent like Australia, 37 per cent dislike it and 18 per cent hate Australia.

This is another example of how the Islamist’s argument that it’s all about Israel and the occupation by infidels of Muslim lands is a smoke screen for their real objective. Bring the world under Islamic law.

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 London, which killed 52 innocent commuters, were justified. Another 30% said they would prefer to live under strict Islamic Sharia law rather than England's democratic system.

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, Spain and Great Britain 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 Jordan's Muslims believe terror attacks are never justified. In Egypt, only 45% of Muslims say terror is never justified.

 

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.

In Lebanon six months ago, the Beirut Center for Research and Information found that over 80% of the Lebanese population said they supported Hizbullah.

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 Indonesia and Malaysia where Muslims enjoy a high standard of living would temper any attempts at Islamist infiltration? Wrong again.

As Reuters reported on October 15, just 10 percent of Indonesian Muslims said they backed jihad and supported bomb attacks on the island of Bali aimed at foreign tourists. But Indonesia is home to more than 200 million Muslims, so while 10 percent may sound like a small number percentage-wise, it is actually quite large in absolute terms. It means there are some 20 million Muslims in Indonesia alone who are willing to say out loud that they support the use of violence and terror against innocent human beings.


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 Israel and the West can, and must, be met. With determination and a sense of purpose, victory is not out of reach. But the longer we continue to underestimate the extent of the problem, the more difficult it will be to defeat it.


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.


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