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.

IMPORTANT Note: See my review and this vital documentary

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.

U.S. District Judge James Moody said in sentencing Al-Arian in 2006:

“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.

John Rossomando, of IPT, wrote today: the UK Gov’t Minister Warns Mosques About Hate Preaching. Because although, muslims can step in any church in America, WE are not allowed inside their mosques.

A letter from a top British government official calling on United Kingdom mosques to root out “men of hate” is generating push-back from the Muslim Council of Britain.

Of course the radical muslims are pushing back.

David Cameron called the letter’s tone “reasonable, sensible and moderate.” Note how he says ‘moderate’ like its disdainful.

From Blogger Newscopia:

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.”

Louisiana has passed a ban on sharia law. Alabama being the most recent of several, with more than a few dozen states considering measures intended to restrict judges from consulting sharia law.

Bobby sure has it wrong about ‘in America!’ We ARE tolerating it Bobby!

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.

In closing:

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

“Those Charlie Hebdo sons of bitches deserved 100 deaths. Serves them right,” and, “This makes me so happy, ha ha ha, those sons of bitches, ha, ha, ha, I’ll go visit their graves and laugh.” – a sample of muslims on Facebook

believers

On the day when journalists were massacred in Paris, while blood still ran wet where they had fallen, and as eye witnesses described the killers’ shouts of …

“Allahu Akbar” – “Allah is great”

New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof asked the world not to judge the killers too quickly: most urgently, he said, don’t jump to the conclusion they are Muslims.

* From Today, a must see: Mark Steyn: Media Maneuvered Islam Into ‘Victim Seat’

Really? Even when they sounded the Muslim prayer? Even when they called their deeds, loud and clear in the streets of Paris, “vengeance for the Prophet”?

Here’s what Kristof did not do: condemn the killings. Praise those who had been slaughtered. Express horror at their execution. And admit that men who praise Allah after committing mass murder are, religious profiling or not, probably going to turn out to be Muslim.

It just kind of is that way.

(Interestingly, in listing a number of Islamic terrorist attacks on Western targets, he also failed to mention that Muslims were involved in the attacks of 9/11. Ask yourself why.)

Instead, he begged his readers not to judge. He repeated the clichéd platitudes about the “majority of Muslims” having nothing to do with Islamic extremism, and praised, not the editors and cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo, but non-Muslims who rose to the aid of Muslims who feared reprisals after the recent (Muslim-led) hostage crisis in Sydney, Australia.

What he might have done, but didn’t, was take a lesson or two from the New Yorker’s George Packer, a man who actually knows a thing or two about Islamic extremism, and about the courage of journalists confronting it: he was one of them. At around the same time Kristof seems to have been penning his column, Packer wrote:

“[Today’s attacks] are only the latest blows delivered by an ideology that has sought to achieve power through terror for decades. It’s the same ideology that sent Salman Rushdie into hiding for a decade under a death sentence for writing a novel, then killed his Japanese translator and tried to kill his Italian translator and Norwegian publisher. The ideology that murdered three thousand people in the U.S. on September 11, 2001. The one that butchered Theo van Gogh in the streets of Amsterdam, in 2004, for making a film. The one that has brought mass rape and slaughter to the cities and deserts of Syria and Iraq. That massacred a hundred and thirty-two children and thirteen adults in a school in Peshawar last month. That regularly kills so many Nigerians, especially young ones, that hardly anyone pays attention.

Because the ideology is the product of a major world religion, a lot of painstaking pretzel logic goes into trying to explain what the violence does, or doesn’t, have to do with Islam. Some well-meaning people tiptoe around the Islamic connection, claiming that the carnage has nothing to do with faith, or that Islam is a religion of peace, or that, at most, the violence represents a “distortion” of a great religion. (After suicide bombings in Baghdad, I grew used to hearing Iraqis say, “No Muslim would do this.”) Others want to lay the blame entirely on the theological content of Islam, as if other religions are more inherently peaceful—a notion belied by history as well as scripture.

A religion is not just a set of texts but the living beliefs and practices of its adherents.”

~ I must interject here that Charlie also published cartoons about Catholics. Do YOU see one of us grabbing our cruicifx and killing the freedom of expression?! Throwing holy water on him as if he is a witch or vampire that would melt?! ~ JP

Not, apparently, for Kristof. Saying nothing about the disgusting filth of the murders, he asked for love and tolerance – an entreaty that evidently seemed appropriate to him at the time. And yet, I imagine that, at the time of the Newtown massacre, he would have had few words to offer about the millions of “nice people” with automatic weapons in their homes, or the gentle souls who would never dream of turning their Kalashnikovs on young children.

January 7, forever a day to be remembered along with 9/11 and 3/11 and 7/7 and far too many others, was not a day for that message, any more than the Holocaust was a time to editorialize about all those nice Germans, or the killing of four black girls on Birmingham Sunday, or of Eric Garner last July, days for writing about all those nice white people in America.

Muslim terrorists killed the staff of Charlie Hebdo.

And Muslim extremists in the West are threatening the lives of every man, woman and child in the West who believes in what Charlie Hebdo stood for.

Say it.

Because words are the strongest weapon in the world.

And so Charlie Hebdo lives on.

35-Raif-Badawi-2

For sheer brutality, it pales in comparison to the massacre of journalists and cartoonists Wednesday at the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo, but Saudi Arabia’s flogging of a liberal blogger Friday further shows how rooted the concept of violence is in response to any insult of Islam.

Raif Badawi was sentenced to 1,000 lashes – he received the first 50 in a public square in Jeddah Friday – along with 10 years in prison and a fine equal to $266,666, Reuters reports. His crime? Creating a website called “Free Saudi Liberals,” which advocated greater religious freedom. Saudi Arabia found this “insulting to Islam.”

In a statement, the International Humanist and Ethical Union called Badawi’s punishment “savage, and an absolute violation of human rights and dignity” intended to cow other potential free thinkers into silence.

“Only yesterday it was reported that Saudi Arabia condemned the Charlie Hebdo shootings, and yet the authorities choose this week to brutalize a young man because he had the audacity to stand up and say that his countrymen should have greater liberty,” Union spokesman Bob Churchill said. “The Saudi state’s condemnation of terror in Paris is hypocrisy of the highest order.”

He has written a companion piece for this video from yesterday. If only islamist sypahtizer obama would get this memo!

They shouted in Arabic “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is Greatest) and “We are avenging the Prophet Mohammed” as they sprayed their victims with hundreds of bullets from their semi-automatic weapons.

NOTE: This is what they say with EVERY Terror attack. obama, THESE are not merely attacks of violence or in the ‘workplace’. ~JP

Their “victims” were the top editorial cartoonists of the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine, who had dared to practice their right of free speech. Their offense? Publishing cartoons deemed “offensive” by Muslim leaders around the world. The perpetrators? Islamic terrorists.

Yet in the immediate hours after the murders in Paris, the response from western leaders was scurrilously predictable in their refusal to describe the attack as an “Islamic terrorist attack.”

Phrasing the problem of “violent extremism,” as the Obama administration has done repeatedly, of being a problem exclusively of only Al Qaeda and now ISIS, is intellectually spurious and truly dangerous to our national security.

Indeed, the responses from our own president, French President Hollande and British Prime Minster David Cameron all spouted the same empty pabulum in asserting that the Paris attack had nothing to do with Islam or any religion for that matter.

But the hollow comments coming from our own leaders are steeped in the stench of appeasement and cowardice.


* The first comments came from Josh Earnest, the White House spokesman, who refused to even call the massacre an act of terrorism, but made sure to add the now typical non-sequitor which now routinely follows Islamic terrorist attacks, that “Islam is a religion of peace” and therefore no should associate with the “extremists” in Paris with Islam.

^ Then President Obama issued his own statement, but in keeping with his administration’s 6 year old prohibition on using the term “Islamic terrorism,” he simply referred to the attack as “terrorism” — a vanilla term conspicuously devoid of any descriptive term explaining the motivation behind the attack.

Thus, to the proverbial Martian it literally could have been eco-terrorism, white supremacist terrorism, or narco-terrorism. (But admittedly, calling this an act of “terrorism” was a step up from the classification of Major Nidal Hassan’s similar massacre at Fort Hood as “workplace violence.”)

* Then in live comments delivered later, both President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry gave blustery defenses of the U.S. determination to protect the right of free speech and vowed that neither the French nor anyone in the West would be cowed into silence by terrorism.

Secretary Kerry said as follows:

“Today, tomorrow, in Paris, in France, or across the world, the freedom of expression that this magazine, no matter what your feelings were about it, the freedom of expression that it represented is not able to be killed by this kind of act of terror.” Nice words of bravado.

I hate to disabuse our secretary of state, but indeed “freedom of expression” has indeed already been killed by acts of Islamic terrorism.

truth koran

In closing…
Finish this necessary warning to get it. In the beginning there were 3 religions:

* Judaism was founded in 1300 BC by Abraham

* Christianity was founded in 33 AD in Palestine

* and islam, last founded by Muhammad in 610 AD , and my personal guideline to the violence and history of islam, has been The Prophet of Doom. Please learn this information. In the prologue alone: “I have been made victorious with terror.”. You will see from this informative site, how islam has been about murder from the very beginning. I see Muhammad no more then a Jim Jones or David Koresh, heck even Heaven’s Gate.

Anyone can write a religious book Muhammad, I mean REALLY!

pod

You will even see the connection to MEIN KAMPF, Kill every Jew.”

POD shows you that the third religion cited, wants to make the first two obsolete. It is all so ordained from their leader, the False Prophet.

I ask you learn the TRUTH from Steve and Prophet of Doom. Then you will get how radical islam is a given response and not a thing we have done, EVER! Nothing we have done, has anything to do with the attacks and slaughter of islamist extremists.

My only question IS, considering all muslims follow the koran, how can even one say they do not support the violence?

Thanks to my friend Steve Emerson @TheIPT who responded quickly to my request to get this to all of you…

Martha MacCallum: We are back and we are waiting for comments from Secretary of State John Kerry. He’s expected to address the horrific attack that took place in the offices of a satirical newspaper in Paris this morning. Steve Emerson is the executive director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism and he joins me now. Steve, your reaction to this and your thoughts on how prepared we are for something like this here at home?

Steve Emerson: First of all I wish I was surprised, but in the last four weeks as you know, Martha, France has experienced three similar attacks. Unfortunately French government officials refuse to categorize them as Islamic terrorist attacks due to political correctness. Fortunately they did characterize this one today.

But our government today in this morning’s press reaction by Josh Earnest refused to call it an Islamic terrorist attack; [all they] did [was] call it [plain] “terrorism” [and] just called it “extremism.” The bottom line here, these are Islamic terrorist attacks and need to be called as such.

The second thing is that these attacks are induced not by ISIS alone, not by al Qaeda alone, but by Muslim Brotherhood groups acting in the West that always spread the ideological poison that there is a “war against Islam.” These are very groups that are invited to do outreach by the White House or by Western governments, and …[their incendiary message is] the number one inducement to carry out such attacks.

So are we prepared? Well, bottom line is the FBI has been doing a great job in stopping 98% of the terrorist plots since 9/11. But you can’t stop all of them. So if armed terrorists want to go into a building of journalists or commercial activities, they can carry out such an attack and kill scores of people. The question is whether we can deter it or whether we can use informants and get [them] in place in time. And I don’t know whether we can do that.

Judge Jeanine: And with me now, Steve Emerson, founder of the Investigator Project. Good evening Steve. We have disturbing new information that ISIS is creating the next generation of terrorists by recruiting young moms, teaching them to raise jihadi babies, showing them how to use AK-47s, trying to desensitizing them to violence, teaching them the importance of allowing their children to see people being murdered. How do we fight that?

This is part of fighting ISIS; it’s part of fighting radical Islam. Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, all have employed women as radical Islamic terrorists. They’ve all used women as terrorists, so it’s really nothing new. What’s new here is that they’re basically exploiting mothers to raise their children [as jihadi babies]. And it’s playing well in the Western media.

The bottom line here is that this is nothing new under the sun, Judge. What’s new here is the fact that we’re reacting as if it’s new. it’s like the front page of the New York Times this past week [reported that] … the top general, General Nagata, [as] saying “we don’t really understand ISIS, we don’t understand what motivates them, we have to understand them” as if they need a psychiatrist. Bottom line here, they’re motivated by radical Islamic theology. It didn’t take much to understand what motivated the Nazis. It doesn’t take much to understand what motivates them. Is ISIS raising a new generation [of jihadis] ? Absolutely. But so are all of the other groups that belong to the spectrum [of radical Islam].- Emerson

Starting Nov. 4, federal prosecutors in Detroit present their case against a Palestinian woman who slipped through the cracks. Rasmieh Odeh, 67, has been in the United States since at least 1995.

To her advocates, she’s a peaceful community activist living in Chicago and an asset to her community.

Yet, she has a bloody, dark side that she has kept hidden all these years.

Odeh is a convicted terrorist who spent 10 years in an Israeli prison. She led a 1969 bombing that killed two college students in a Jerusalem supermarket. Odeh confessed. She says that confession only came after she was tortured. She was sentenced to life in prison, but was released unexpectedly as part of a prisoner exchange in 1979.

Her supporters have launched an aggressive campaign aimed at getting the fraud charges dropped. Odeh, they say, is the real victim here. They claim this case is really about a government conspiracy to attack Palestinian advocates in America.

The campaign is led by Odeh’s colleagues from the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), but has attracted support from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee, and even a group of 124 feminist academics.

In the video , the first installment of a five-part Investigative Project on Terrorism video series on Odeh’s case and the campaign to thwart it, we provide an overview of the case and a look at Rasmieh Odeh and those supporting her.

Part 2: Rasmieh Odeh’s Victims:

The case against Rasmieh Odeh, and her supporters’ efforts to get the case dropped, looks at the victims of the 1969 Jerusalem supermarket bombing that led to Odeh’s conviction in an Israeli court.

Today’s installment traces the life of Edward Joffe, one of the two college students killed in the bombing. His brothers explain what prompted the family’s move from South Africa to Israel during the 1960s, and describe Edward’s hopes and dreams before his murder.

Rulings issued Monday mean that much of Odeh’s supporters’ arguments – that Odeh’s confession in the bombing was the result of torture, that her case is a selective prosecution aimed at hurting the Palestinian advocacy community – will not be allowed during her immigration fraud scheduled to begin Nov. 4.

Her attorneys have asked for a continuance.

The immigration fraud case against Odeh. Part 3 Spinning a Terrorist Into a Victim: Rasmieh Odeh’s Path From Terrorist to American Citizen:

Rasmieh Odeh was convicted in a 1969 terrorist bombing in Jerusalem and given a life sentence. So how did she wind up in Chicago, as an American citizen? In Part 3 of our series examining the immigration fraud case against Odeh, we trace her steps from a prisoner exchange to her arrival in America and, ultimately, how she became an American citizen by withholding her criminal record from U.S. immigration officials.

Part 4: Rasmieh Odeh’s Changing Story:

On her immigration forms to come to America and later to become a naturalized citizen, Rasmieh Odeh swore she had no criminal background. No arrests, no convictions and no prison time. Her attorney says that’s not a lie, despite the 10 years she spent in an Israeli prison after being convicted of bombing a Jerusalem grocery store in 1969. In Part 4 of our series examining Odeh’s pending immigration fraud case, we see her memory is much clearer when she’s among friends.

Clip from 60 Minutes:

Ultimately an American citizen unless the passport is revoked is entitled to come back. So if someone who has fought with ISIL with an American passport wants to come back, we’ll track them very carefully. – FBI director Jim Comey

behead

Judge, there has been a tremendous uptick in recruitment. In the last month alone intelligence estimates say up to more than 5,000 volunteers have come from Europe alone and several hundred from the United States. And the notion that we can track them when they come back to the United States I think is somewhat questionable since it takes about 24 agents just to track one person for a 24 hour period nonstop.

Number two, I think our policy on the issue of radical Islam is really screwed up here. Here you have a president at the UN praises a radical sheikh who says he’s opposed to ISIS but issues a fatwa calling for killing of American soldiers. You have the President basically sending a welcome message to the Oklahoma mosque which produced that crazy Islamist who beheaded, Mr. Nolen, who beheaded his co-worker and who had on his Facebook page photos praising bin Laden, praising 9/11, and even a picture of somebody being beheaded.

So I think our own policies [ are actually constraining us], including that the fact that the Attorney General has prohibited the FBI from using religious criteria from investigating Islamists. I think right now, Judge, we have a [counter-terrorism] policy that doesn’t exist. ~ Steve Emerson
