3 arrested in NYC for trying to join and plot with terror group as more Westerners are being recruited. How is ISIS trying to attract new members?
Please take the time to read What ISIS Really Wants. The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it. By Graeme Wood March 2015
JUST listen to Jeh Johnson, Head of DHS. He sends mixed signals and makes us wonder with the bill to fund DHS on the table for obama to veto any moment now, if THIS is the true nature of so called mall attacks?
We worried and rightfully so about our weak GOP caving:
Senate Republican leaders are plotting a new strategy that they hope will allow them to prevent a shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) next week.
They are considering a plan in which they would split off legislation attacking President Obama’s executive action on immigration from funding for DHS, according to a Senate GOP aide familiar with the discussions.
Senate GOP leaders are also looking at dropping any effort to overturn Obama’s 2012 executive action, which set up the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
We aren’t saying the Somali threat may not happen. Lord knows Minnesota has welcomed radical muslims with open arms. As of 2010 the Somali population is at minimum 150k .
Local Somali leaders have long worried about the recruitment of their youth. In recent years, more than two dozen men have left to fight with al-Shabaab in Somalia. And in recent months, multiple Minnesota teens have been arrested for alleged connections with terror groups like ISIS.
We stress ‘purported’ calls for attacks on Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minn.
According to Fox 9, the mall is one of three similar targets the terror group specifically names, including West Edmonton Mall in Canada and the Oxford Street shopping area in London.
This is in direct line of the following article I heard aired on the Leland LIVE show yesterday. Several analogies are credited to him. Thanks Leland.
Catherine on Greta last night tells that ‘Rome’ cited in IS declaration while they beheaded Egyptian Coptics, has a few different meanings.
– They are putting a target on the backs of Christians
– This one sounds like obama in Dreams of his daddy. Hostility towards Italy because of its colonial past.
ISIS Baghdadi Appears In Mosque “Declares He Is Caliph”.Caliph, also spelled calif, Arabic khalīfah (“successor”), ruler of the Muslim community. When the Prophet Muhammad died (June 8, 632 ce), Abū Bakr succeeded to his political and administrative functions as khalīfah rasūl Allāh, “successor of the Messenger of God.” Not al-Baghdadi has taken this name!
According to the Shīʿites, who call the supreme office the “imamate,” or leadership, no caliph is legitimate unless he is a lineal descendant of the Prophet Muhammad. So unless al-Baghdadi can prove this, he needs to be vetted and exposed.
There is so very much you need to know in this piece. But you need to take the hour it may take, to read every paragraph. Then you need to drive it home to everyone you know. To know the enemy and expose it is the only way to try and defeat it.
Let me repeat:
To know the enemy and expose it is the only way to try and defeat it.
The caliphate is on their horizon. For Christians you can liken this to your rapture. This has become IS Holocaust. The Holocaust people. What our grandparents tried to educate us on. How they wanted to drive home what freedom meant to them when they came to our country’s shores.
The group seized Mosul, Iraq, last June, and already rules an area larger than the United Kingdom. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been its leader since May 2010, but until last summer, his most recent known appearance on film was a grainy mug shot from a stay in U.S. captivity at Camp Bucca during the occupation of Iraq.
Then, on July 5 of last year, he stepped into the pulpit of the Great Mosque of al-Nuri in Mosul, to deliver a Ramadan sermon as the first caliph in generations—upgrading his resolution from grainy to high-definition, and his position from hunted guerrilla to commander of all Muslims. The inflow of jihadists that followed, from around the world, was unprecedented in its pace and volume, and is continuing.
Baghdadi has spoken on camera only once. But his address, and the Islamic State’s countless other propaganda videos and encyclicals, are online, and the caliphate’s supporters have toiled mightily to make their project knowable.
Before we continue with the two important reads I’ve included that are central to this post, JUST check this out:
English subtitles of full sermon by ISIS’s Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, Caliph of the “Islamic State”
ISIS Leader Al-Baghdadi Calls to Wage Jihad, Says: Becoming a Caliph Is a Heavy Responsibility
It was the 20-minute sermon that shook the world.
By any standard the oration delivered in July in the Grand Mosque of Mosul was both audacious and subversive, and has plunged the Middle East deeper into bloody turmoil.
In announcing a caliphate, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the al-Qaida breakaway faction he calls the Islamic State, was throwing down the gauntlet – to established Muslim leaders and the West as well as fellow jihadists.

This is the historic Jum’ah Khutbah and prayer in the Grand Masjid of Mosul City by Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the newly appointed Khalifah (Caliph) of the “Islamic State” in Iraq and Syria. This speech was recorded on Friday the 4th July 2014. Al-Baghdadi attempts to give religious sanction for his Jihad and his Caliphate.
It does not contain much in the way of the anti-Shia sentiment ascribed to him, beyond fighting to end fitnah.
Due to the First Fitna which led to the sectarian division of Sunni vs. Shi’a Islam, the succession of Muhammad is disputed within Islam.
The only two caliphs recognized in both Sunni and Shi’a Islam are Ali ibn Abu Talib Hasan ibn Ali considered the fourth and fifth or the first two, respectively.
Understand THIS speech is what has brought 20k IS fighters to Syria. Of which as many as 150 Americans have tried and some have succeeded in reaching in the Syrian war zone,THIS is their inspiration the very same way Billy Graham inspired many of you.
Mar 29, 2011 Limbaugh: Obama Believes He’s the 12th Imam
Rush Limbaugh: Obama is now into caliphate building — he believes he is the 12th Imam.
In closing I pray, ask you to Wake Up your breathern. Family, friends, your pastors. Not only do I fear IS is mesmerized with their blind ambition of Caliphate on infidels such as us, but that our very own in house president, who was never vetted, is vetted NOW. Now we know not JUST where his sympathies lie, but where his very cold heart IS. ~ JP
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)
Over 150 US citizens made their way to Syria to join the ranks of ISIS, US intelligence officials confirmed. The American citizens joined another 3,400 westerners as part of a total 20,000 foreigners who sought out becoming part of the Islamist terror group.
The US National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) said that foreigners from over 90 countries have taken up ranks with ISIS. This estimated number rose by over 2,000 foreign volunteer fighters from the previously estimated number of 18,000 made in January, AFP reported.
While precise numbers were unavailable, NCTC Director Nicholas Rasmussen stated that “the trend lines are clear and concerning.” The statement was part of remarks prepared for a Congressional hearing which took place on Wednesday.
Rasmussen said that the current “rate of foreign fighter travel to Syria is unprecedented.” He explained that foreigners journeying to meet up with ISIS “exceeds the rate of travelers who went to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen or Somalia at any point in the last 20 years.”
Syrian activists risk death to track ISIS from the inside:
Secretly film life in jihadist HQs…
Published on Sep 15, 2014
What’s it like to live under the rule of the extremist group known as the Islamic State, or ISIS? WSJ looks at the situation in Raqqa, Syria, through the eyes of two activists — and through the lens of ISIS propaganda videos.
Per FNC, the WH refused to reveal who was at the breakfast, we have the answer…
Obama Bashed the Crusades, Next to Him was a Major Islamic Jihadist wanted for War Crimes, whose Nation Obama wants Removed from State Sponsors of Terrorism List
(image Sudan’s Foreign MInister Ali Ahmed Karti with Hillary Clinton in 2011.)
In addition to Barack Obama comparing ISIS terrorists to righteous Crusaders at the National Prayer Breakfast, seated near him was Ali Ahmed Karti, the foreign minister of Sudan. Sudan is a country that has been listed as an official State Sponsor of Terrorism since 1993. One of the reasons for this is that five Sudanese nationals were found to have been involved in the first attack on the World Trade Center and in the subsequent plot to bomb New York City landmarks.
It’s worth noting that in addition to Sudan being led by President Omar al-Bashir who is wanted for war crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court (ICC), that country has a connection to both World Trade Center attacks (1993 and 2001). Al-Bashir’s regime was in power during both and has been since 1989, when al-Bashir joined a jihadist named Hassan al-Turabi in a coup.
Now it’s learned that the foreign minister of Sudan was present at the National Prayer Breakfast, an event sponsored by the Fellowship Foundation, a Christian-based organization (not Muslim):
Activists also say the presence of the foreign minister, Ali Ahmed Karti, at the breakfast as well as reports of meetings with administration officials could signal that Washington is considering normalizing relations with Sudan. The International Criminal Court (ICC) indicted President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan in 2009 for war crimes and genocide in the southern region of Darfur, where the United Nations says government forces have killed as many as 300,000 people in non-Arab rebel tribes.
Despite the ongoing violence and investigation by the ICC, Donald Booth, the U.S. special envoy to Sudan, has expressed a willingness to restart talks with Bashir’s regime.
“We must together chart a course forward,” Booth said in October. “To this end, I reiterate my readiness, and that of my government, to engage the Sudanese in a more frank and frequent exchange, to visit Khartoum, and to discuss the full range of issues that frame our bilateral relationship.”
The recent announcement that the Obama administration is normalizing relations with Cuba – one of the four states on the terrorism list – is to help make normalized relations with Sudan a bit less shocking. It’s how progressives work.
There is another figure who was a senior member of the al-Bashir regime for nearly a decade – beginning prior to that country being put on the terrorism list and ending years later – who holds a position of prominence.
His name is Abubaker Y. Ahmed Al Shingieti. In addition to sitting on the Board of Trustees of the Hartford Seminary, Shingieti is also the Vice President of the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy (ICRD).
Last year, the ICRD held an event to honor the notorious Ground Zero mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. None other than then House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Chairman, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) was scheduled to attend but backed out, presumably after word got out. Former Ronald Reagan National Security Adviser Robert McFarlane actually did attend the event, as Shoebat.com reported.
As Shoebat.com has reported, the details of the case have been made known by several individuals who could do something about it if they wanted to. One such individual is Rep. Mike Rogers (R-PA), who sits on the House Ways and Means Committee, which is charged with investigating the IRS scandal. In 2013, while conducting a radio town hall in his district, Kelly twice said that the claims against President Obama’s brother are “spot on” but continues to ignore them, at least publicly.
If relations with Sudan are normalized, Kelly will be implicated by his silence:
Listen at the 4:21 mark: “These are scandals that have to come forward right now because if we don’t expose them, if we don’t correct them, then why in the world are we there?”
Mr. Kelly should take those words to heart.
~ I must thank Ben Barrack. I heard him last night on Coast to Coast of all places. But I am so glad I did because with the volu,e of our email daily, I never get to read Shoebat. I will tell you we will make sure to check out daily articles. ~ JP
Al-Arian agreed to leave the country as a condition of his 2006 plea agreement for conspiring to provide goods or services to the PIJ, which President Clinton first named as a terrorist organization in a 1995 executive order.
The deportation ends a 20-year saga for Al-Arian, who was first exposed as a PIJ supporter in the Polk Award winning documentary “Jihad in America” produced by IPT founder and Executive Director Steven Emerson.
Sami Al-Arian, a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ)’s governing board during the 1990s, will be deported from the United States Wednesday, a Tampa radio station reports.
WUSF, a public radio affiliate at the university where Al-Arian worked as a tenured computer science professor, cites Al-Arian associates who say he is headed to Turkey.
Al-Arian became a cause celebre among Islamists and their political allies. They ignored his documented role in PIJ leadership, and cast the law enforcement scrutiny against him as the product of an Israeli conspiracy to silence him solely for espousing his political views.
“The evidence was clear in this case that you were a leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. You were on the board of directors and an officer, the secretary. Directors control the actions of an organization, even the PIJ; and you were an active leader.”
His deportation was delayed after he was found in contempt and later indicted for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury in Virginia investigating terrorist financing despite a grant of immunity for his truthful testimony. That case languished for five years when U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema refused to rule on a motion to dismiss but also would not set the case for trial.
Prosecutors dropped the case last June, paving the way for Wednesday’s removal.
I have waited for this administrations driven attack on Steve to subside. Steve has been my friend since 1998. He misspoke and immediately apologized. He didn’t mean to say ‘Birmingham’. I like to think he had me on his mind
His character is UNimpeachable. I can attest to it. He fought the war on terror before it became a catchphrase. He did so at his own expense. He and his team were risking not only exposure but their lives at being discovered. I will not have all those years since 1995 being undermined by this administration. Their diversionary tactics because Steve and the IPT are such a threat to them and to their liberal compadre, David Cameron.
Talk about a bunch of cowards taking part in what is exactly wrong with fighting islamofacists like them.
Terrorist ‘hunters’ are always being exposed by the left. We are forced into coming out because they put us in the limelight to discredit us.
Emerson retracted his statement, saying that he “clearly made a terrible error for which I am deeply sorry,”
“[A]nd in Britain, it’s not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.”
The late New York Times managing editor A.M. Rosenthal called Series VI: Subject files
1987-2002 (SEE b. 27 f. 5
Emerson, Steven) Emerson “one of the nation’s best national security correspondents” whose “investigative work on radical Islamic fundamentalism is absolutely critical to this nation’s national security. There is no one else who has exhibited the same expertise, courage and determination to tackle this vital issue.” And Weiss cited other examples of praise for Emerson on the pages of the Times: “In this article in the Times in 1988,” wrote Weiss, “veteran Times reporters Martin Tolchin and Richard Halloran described Emerson as ‘an expert on intelligence.’”
While Emerson clearly was wrong on the specifics of what he said, he was referring to the undeniably expanding Islamization occurring in parts of Europe. This news story from CBN in 2010 captured this very real phenomenon, which does exist, and continues to grow.
JUST this morning Glen Beck defended Steve and interviewed him:
The Paris mayor is JUST ridiculous threatening to sue Steve and FOX. Again, citing the NYT:
Ms. Hidalgo did not say what sort of complaint she planned to file, or in what jurisdiction. However, legal experts said that the city’s attempt to claim that it had been libeled by the network would almost certainly fail in the United States, given First Amendment protections and a 1964 ruling by the Supreme Court that held that municipalities cannot be awarded damages from news organizations even for reports containing errors.
Jindal in London: Lack of Assimilation Has Led to Sharia, ‘No-Go Zones’ for Non-Muslims
Jindal said his comments referred to reports in British media that “there are neighborhoods where the police say they don’t go as frequently; there are neighborhoods where women do not comfortable walking without veils.”
“We don’t see that in America. We wouldn’t tolerate that in America. But in America, if we continue to allow people coming in without insisting on assimilation, on integration, this is what lies in our future,” he said. “What I worry about, in America, it’s become politically correct to say that that is a religious difference. This is not a religious difference. We need Muslim leaders to denounce these radical Islamists and say — not only condemning the violence, but condemning the individuals and saying they’re not martyrs, they will not be rewarded in the afterlife, rather they’re going straight to hell.”
For the record, there are no “official” no-go zones anywhere in Europe. What government on planet Earth would willingly admit that it doesn’t control its own territory? But in France, there are 751 neighborhoods the French government believe they don’t fully control.

Steve is not apologing for what so many have used for a decade or longer, ‘No Go Zones’. We have those zones here as well. Law enforcement will not enter them in fear of their lives. Local cops in our islamic compounds are fearful. The fear is real.
And Steve? When you read this, I promise not to pull a James Taylor on you like John Kerry did in France. You were my mentor. You ARE my friend and we got your back Steve. As Glenn told you this morning, “YOU are a true hero!”. I know you are mine. ~ JP
