OH MY!!! Can you imagine what would happen if we blocked the streets just ONE day a week in worship!!
America better get on her knees FAST … ‘cause they are taking over!!
A Christian Nation cannot put up a Christmas scene of the baby Jesus in a public place, but the Muslims can stop normal traffic every Friday afternoon by worshiping in the streets… Something is happening in America that is reminiscent of what is happening in Europe. This is Political Correctness gone crazy…
This is an accurate picture of every Friday afternoon in several locations throughout NYC where there are mosques with a large number of Muslims that cannot fit into the mosque – They fill the surrounding streets, facing east for a couple of hours between about 2 & 4 p.m. – Besides this one at 42nd St & Madison Ave, there is another, even larger group, at 94th St & 3rd Ave, etc., etc. – Also, I presume, you are aware of the dispute over building another “high rise” Mosque a few blocks from “ground zero” – With regard to that one, the “Imam” refuses to disclose where the $110 million dollars to build it is coming from and there is a lawsuit filed to force disclosure of that information – Just some facts FYI – But then, you have your own troubles with the “immigration” problem and the new AZ law –
November can’t come soon enough!!!
Pissed off yet?!
This is in New York City on Madison Avenue, not in France or the Middle East or Yemen or Kenya.
Is there a message here??? Yes, there is, and they are claiming America for allah. if we don’t wake up soon, we are going to “politically correct” ourselves right out of our own country!
Believe it or not but this could be your town very, very soon if Americans don’t stop it NOW!!!

Are Muslims permitted to lie?
Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should be truthful to each other. But to the unbeliever “the infidels”, it is a different story.
Is it really true that Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers (non-Muslims)?
It’s screwy I know but YES, it is. The religion Islam allows Muslims to lie & deceive non-Muslims “the infidels”!!
There are two forms of lying that are permitted under “certain circumstances” called: taqiyyah and kitman.
Taqiyyah (or; Al-Taqiyya):
Saying/writing something that isn’t true.
Lying by omission (pick and choose what looks good and stay quiet about the rest).
Taqiyyah and kitman or “holy hypocrisy” has been diffused throughout Arabic culture for over fourteen hundred years since it was developed by Shiites as a means of defence and concealment of beliefs against Sunni unbelievers.
Sura (16:106) – Establishes that there are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie.
Sura (3:28) – This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves.”
Sura (40:28) – A man is introduced as a believer, but one who must “hide his faith” among those who are not believers.
Sura (2:225) – “Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts”
Sura (66:2) – “Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths”
Bukhari (52:270) – Recounts the murder of a poet, Ka’b bin al-Ashraf, at Muhammad’s insistence. The men who volunteered for the assassination used dishonesty to gain Ka’b’s trust, pretending that they had turned against Muhammad. This drew the victim out of his fortress, whereupon he was brutally slaughtered despite putting up a ferocious struggle for his life.
Bukhari (49:857) – “He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar.” Lying is permitted when the end justifies the means.
Bukhari (84:64-65) – Speaking from a position of power at the time, Ali confirms that lying is permissible in order to deceive an “enemy.”
From Islamic Law:
Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746) – “[it is] obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory… Whether the purpose is war, settling a disagreement, or gaining the sympathy of a victim legally entitled to retaliate… it is not unlawful to lie when any of these aims can only be attained through lying. But is is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression…”
Islam mandates deception [taqiyya] when Muslims deal with non-Muslims. Muslims are allowed to lie to unbelievers if the lie is for the protection of Islam or the furthering of Islamic goals and objectives. In the cause of Islamic expansionism Muslims falsely inform non-Muslims that: Islam is a “religion of peace”, the Quran mandates pluralism of religions, “jihad” is only about an “inner spiritual struggle”, unprovoked violence against non-Muslims is un-Islamic, immigrant Muslims wish to fully integrate into Western countries by adopting democratic principles instead of Sharia Law, Muhammad was a man of peace, etc. None of these things are true. Taqiyya is not about truth. Taqiyya is about deception — lulling Western people into a false sense of security, while, in reality, Islam directs Muslim immigrants to “appear integrated” while actually living as a state-within-a-state… UNTIL THEY TAKE OVER via violent jihad. Europe, be warned!
People need to understand that most of the Islamic websites on the Internet created by Muslims are practicing; Taqiyyah and Kitman. Taqiyya and Kitman are deception in Islamic warfare and the intention to deceive unbelievers (and Muslims) about Islam.
How many times have you not witnessed that Islamic spokesmen will rarely condemn a specific act of terrorism, honour murder, etc… and direct questions will be skillfully evaded.
Islamic spokesmen often practice a form of taqiyyah defined in psychology as “cognitive denial” by repetitive and extreme requests for “evidence” and “proof” of alleged terrorist acts, which they know cannot be disclosed.
Islamic spokesman will deny a claim or proposition in absolute terms. For example: “It is impossible to be a Muslim and a terrorist”, which is false, and “Islam forbids suicide”, which is true, but irrelevant when suicide- or martyrdom- attacks NOT are forbidden in the Qur’an.
What’s the goal? Maybe the Imam’s goal is not simply to force a provocative “insensitivity” about 9-11 on the American public, with the help of America’s elites. Maybe the Imam’s long-term goal is to force Shariah law on the American public – of course, again, with the help of America’s elites.
Why don’t the 15 floors add up? How many floors does Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf need for the mosque portion of this triumphal Islamic command center planned for the two building sites at 45-47 Park Place in New York City? Think about it: maybe 2 floors for the mosque itself and related offices. A 3rd floor for the swimming pool, a 4th for the 500 seat auditorium, a 5th for the halal restaurant and halal culinary school, a 6th for the art studios, the childcare center and library, a 7th for the gym and basketball court. Add an 8th floor for miscellaneous storage and offices. And then add a 9th floor for the September 11 memorial, an after-thought that was recently added to the Imam’s plan, although that may in fact be more of a room off to one side than a whole floor.
That leaves six mystery floors empty – or dedicated to other activities. Six floors – that’s a lot of offices, a lot of employees, maybe more than half of the 150 full-time and 500 part-time jobs the Imam says he’ll bring to Lower Manhattan. What are Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s plans for those six mystery floors?
Follow the Shariah Index Project to solve the puzzle of the 6 mystery floors: We found two hidden websites with copiously deleted information, all about the Imam’s Cordoba Institute Shariah Index Project. For reference, here’s the Imam’s most recent hidden website (also available here as a pdf). And here’s the Imam’s earlier hidden website (also available here as a pdf). The information on those websites – information that the Imam tried to hide with a new whitewashed version – suggests that the six mystery floors of the Ground Zero Mosque will be dedicated to the Imam’s long-term goal: the Shariah Index Project, designed to benchmark Shariah compliance, to distribute Shariah propaganda, and to enforce Shariah law in America and worldwide.
Drawing from those hidden webpages and other sites, we’ve constructed a timeline for the Shariah Index Project and a partial list of Rauf’s partners in the Project. In Part 2, we’ll reveal the disturbing background and views of those partners. And in Part 3, we’ll present the bottom line – how this all ties together as a historic Islamist effort to market and to enforce Shariah in America, starting from Ground Zero.
Courtney Erwin could end the cover-up of these documents today, given her leading role in the Shariah Index Project since its inception. Erwin, by the way, has been working in Doha (Qatar, home of jihad-supporter Sheik Qaradawi, so admired by Imam Rauf) for the past three months. She states that her team includes a “Qatari legal researcher,” presumably for ongoing work on the Shariah Index Project. She may also be working with one of the core Shariah experts partnering in the Shariah Index Project, Dr. Jasser Auda, since January 2010 an Associate Professor in the Public Policy Program, Faculty of Islamic Studies, Qatar Foundation in Qatar. (Qatar is also one of the countries Imam Rauf is scheduled to visit on his State Department-funded trip this summer.) Look for much more on Erwin and Auda in Part 2.
American citizens and their elected officials should ask Rauf, Erwin and their associates to end the Shariah Index Project cover-up, and to disclose all documents, meeting notes, emails and attendee lists from 2006 to the present day. You don’t ask, you don’t get.
For more details on August 2006 – The Planning Meeting – Meeting #1 through # 8, with much documentation & sleuthing go to:
~JP I would like to note two meetings in particular, for Steve Emerson has investigated the Muslim Brotherhood throughly:
November 21, 2008 – The Book Launch Celebration with the Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT- Meeting #7
The International Institute of Islamist Thought (IIIT), a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organization in Northern Virginia, met to launch the publication of an abridged edition of Rauf’s “What is Right with Islam is what is Right for America.” The meeting was chaired by IIIT Vice President Jamal Barzinji, and the publisher of the abridged edition is a group called American Muslims for Constructive Engagement (AMCE). Also promoted in that series of “Reader’s Digest Condensed Islamism”: Harvard’s Noah Feldman’s “Fall and Rise of the Islamic State,” “1) Who Speaks for Islam: By John Esposito and Dalia Mogahed. Dalia Mogahed is head of the Gallup project on Muslim public opinion, the most likely contact at Gallup for the earlier meetings on the Shariah Index Project (more on that relationship, and on the AMCE and their U.S. government backers in Part 2).
December 19, 2008 – Final Coordination with the Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT – Meeting #8
Rauf met with Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT leadership to discuss the Shariah Index Project (here as pdf). A key figure, Dr. Jasser Auda, met with Rauf at IIIT Headquarters in Northern Virginia. Auda has the background and the brains to be coordinating the Shariah Index Project behind the scenes from Qatar, making Rauf simply a U.S. salesman for an effort that may actually be directed by others. More on Auda in Part 2.
Let’s Review. All those numbers begin to add up:
The Ground Zero Mosque has at least 6 mystery floors. We suggest that they’ll be used by the Shariah Index Project.
The Shariah Index Project was built by at least 14 Shariah experts. We have the identities probably of 7 of them, and Rauf should reveal the other 7 right away.
The Shariah Index Project generated at least 16 documents and maybe a final book, and Rauf should release all of these – right away.
The issues at stake in the Ground Zero Mosque and the Shariah Index Project are not about Americans supporting the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom. Americans support that protection.
The issues at stake here are about Americans protecting the Constitution from Shariah-adherent groups using the protective guise of religious freedom to attack the Constitution itself – using a triumphal Ground Zero mosque as “the base” for a project to institutionalize Shariah in America.
The United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaida has of non-Muslims, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the leader of the effort to build a mosque near the site of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York, told an Australian audience in July 2005.
In a taped speech, Rauf made a number of comments that would make anyone who is not concerned about the mosque at the Ground Zero site rethink their support for the man tasked with heading the “bridge-building” center.
* “We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al Qaida has on its hands of innocent non Muslims. You may remember that the US-led sanctions against Iraq led to the death of over half a million Iraqi children. This has been documented by the United Nations. And when Madeleine Albright, who has become a friend of mine over the last couple of years, when she was Secretary of State and was asked whether this was worth it, said it was worth it.”
The United States has supported authoritarian regimes, Rauf said, and it’s understandable that people in those nations would take action into their own hands. “Collateral damage is a nice thing to put on a paper but when the collateral damage is your own uncle or cousin, what passions do these arouse? How do you negotiate? How do you tell people whose homes have been destroyed, whose lives have been destroyed, that this does not justify your actions of terrorism. It’s hard. Yes, it is true that it does not justify the acts of bombing innocent civilians, that does not solve the problem, but after 50 years of, in many cases, oppression, of US support of authoritarian regimes that have violated human rights in the most heinous of ways, how else do people get attention?”
Asked why Muslims commit suicide bombings, Rauf belittled the fanatical religious motivation of such attacks and said: “But what makes people, in my opinion, commit suicide for political reasons have their origins in politics and political objectives and worldly objectives rather than other worldly objectives. But the psychology of human beings and the brittleness of the human condition and how many of us have thought about taking our own lives, we may be jilted, had a bad relationship, you know, didn’t get tenure at the university, failed an important course, there’s a host of reason why people feel so depressed with themselves that they are willing to contemplate ending their own lives. And if you can access those individuals and deploy them for your own worldly objectives, this is exactly what has happened in much of the Muslim world. ”
On Israel, Rauf said he does not favor the plan to establish a Palestinian state along with Israel. Instead, “The differences, perhaps, may lie on whether the solution lies in the two-state solution or in a one-state solution. I believe that you had someone here recently who spoke about having a one land and two people’s solution to Israel. And I personally – my own personal analysis tells me that a one-state solution is a more coherent one than a two-state solution. So if we address the underlying issue, if we figure out a way to create condominiums, to condominiamise Israel and Palestine so you have two peoples co-existing on one state, then we have a different paradigm which will allow us to move forward.”
“And when we observe terrorism,” he said, “whether it was done by the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka or by al Qaida or whoever is behind the bombings in London or those in Madrid, we can see that they were target political objectives.
Rauf, who is on a trip to the Middle East sponsored by the State Department, gave the speech on July 12, 2005, at the University of South Australia.
* Tape 1-(IPT fact check: A report by the British government said at most only 50,000 deaths could be attributed to the sanctions, which were brought on by the actions by former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.)
* Tape 2- (IPT fact check: This is justifying acts of terrorism by blaming the United States for the oppression of Islamic regimes of their own citizens. This also ignores U.S. aid of Muslim citizens in nations such as Kosovo and Kuwait).
* Tape 3 (IPT fact check: Here Rauf tries to negate that suicide bombings are driven by Islamic religious beliefs and trying to equate terrorist activity to someone who doesn’t get tenure.)
* Tape 4 (IPT fact check: A one-state solution is a euphemism for the destruction of Israel, because Palestinian Muslims will quickly outnumber the Jewish resident of Israel. Such a position is advocated by radical groups, such as the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.)
* Tape 5 (IPT fact check: Rauf again seems to justify terrorist acts by equating hitting civilians with political objectives.)
All roads taken by Feisal Abdul Rauf seem to lead to the sharia state of Malaysia.
–“O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.” –The Almighty Allah, writing in his bestselling book: “The Koran,” Sura 5, (The Table), Verse 51 (Translation: Marmaduke Pickthall)
Rauf spent many weeks there in summer 2010. He first attended school there. Rauf stands second in command at Malaysia’s Perdana Global Peace Organization to antisemitic former Malaysian P.M. and Islamic law advocate Mahathir Mohamad,1 who in Nov. 2002, incited global anti-West financial waras a “jihad worth fighting for.” 2 Rauf’s father, Muslim Brother Mohammed Abdul Rauf, a colleague and close contemporary of MB founder Hassan al-Banna, established four Malaysian Islamic study centers, including the International Islamic University in Kuala Lumpur, which Mahathir invited him back to Malaysia to open. Malaysia’s IIU now rivals Pakistan’s International Islamic University in Karachi. 3
It now seems that Malaysian Islamic ideology also played a big role in formulating the Muslim Brotherhood strategy to destroy the West from within and sabotage “its miserable house.” 4
Those words, of course, paraphrase Article 4 of “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” penned by Mohamed Akram and secretly circulated to trusted Muslim Brothers on May 22, 1991.5
Also entitled “Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America,” Article 4 needs no further comment. In its entirety, it succinctly and frighteningly explains,
“The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their [own] hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.” 6
Recognizing the centrality of Article 17, however, takes on critical importance in light of national and increasingly international furor over Feisal Abdul Rauf’s plan to construct a towering 15-story mosque at Ground Zero. Entitled “Understanding the role and the nature of work of “The Islamic Center” in every city with what achieves the goal of the process of settlement,” Article 17 states,
“The center we seek is the one which constitutes the “axis” of our Movement, the “perimeter” of the circle of our work, our “balance center”, the “base” for our rise and our “Dar al-Arqam” to educate us, prepare us and supply our battalions in addition to being the “niche” of our prayers. (emphasis added)
Like Rauf, reports the Oxford Dictionary of Islam, Dar-al-Arqam is rooted in Malaysia. Actually, Feisal Abdul Rauf could easily have drawn from the prototype “grassroots Malaysian Islamic dawah [proselytization] movement” that Ashari Muhammad al-Tamimi founded in 1968, and evidently named for the first Islamic school of Muhammad, to;
“revive Islamic religious belief and values for comprehensive practice in everyday life. Emphasizes self-assessment, self-correction, and formation of the Islamic personality. Uses the Sufi teacher-disciple bond to reinforce obedience to leadership. Sponsors lectures, concerts, and cultural shows, publishes books, magazines, and newspapers, and produces videos and cassette tapes showing the Islamic way of life. Expanded to an international arena in 1979 through missionary programs and diplomatic contacts. Has established self-contained Islamic villages throughout Malaysia to demonstrate the viability of the Islamic sociopolitical and economic system. Operates schools, clinics, businesses, agricultural complexes, and advertising and service agencies.” 7
Rauf expressed almost identical wishes in his 2000 book, Islam a Sacred Law: What Every Muslim should Know about Shariah. 8 In it, as in his later, 2004 book, Rauf pines for pure, orthodox Islam and the inspiration for both violent and non-violent jihad, as preached by a bevy of Islamic clerics throughout the ages — such as 14th century jurist Taqi al-Din Ahmad Ibn Taymiyya (d. 1328) and his 18th century follower Muhammad b. Abdul al-Wahhab (d. 1793). Rauf seeks to “rejuvenate” their Islamic religious spirit, and that of some he falsely labels “modernists,” Jamal al-Dinal-Afghani (d. 1897), Muhammad Abduh (d. 1905), and Abduh’s biographer Rashid Rida (d. 1935). Far from modern, however, they all sought to impose sharia law more widely — despite its requirements for permanent jihad war, and discrimination and dehumanization of non-Muslims and women. So did classical Sufi master al-Ghazali (d. 1111) — another orthodox Muslim, an equally bellicose jurist concerning annual jihad campaigns, discriminating against non-Muslims and imposing Islamic law. 9
And yes, Rauf plans a mosque: His American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) registered with the Internal Revenue Service in 1997 as a “church” — only to avoid the annual 990 tax form required of all other U.S. tax-exempt non-profit organizations. But it is not a church as Westerners understand that word. It is a battalion.
Article 17 of the MB strategy for North America proves there is nothing innocent about an “Islamic cultural center,” whether labeled “mosque” or not. It clearly invokes the need for military and politically supremacist strategies.
This is in order for the Islamic center to turn – in action not in words – into a seed “for a small Islamic society” which is a reflection and a mirror to our central organizations. The center ought to turn into a “beehive” which produces sweet honey. Thus, the Islamic center would turn into a place for study, family, battalion, course, seminar, visit, sport, school, social club, women gathering, kindergarten for male and female youngsters, the office of the domestic political resolution, and the center for distributing our newspapers, magazines, books and our audio and visual tapes.
In brief we say: we would like for the Islamic center to become “The House of Dawa”‘ and “the general center” in deeds first before name. As much as we own and direct these centers at the continent level, we can say we are marching successfully towards the settlement of Dawa’ in this country.
Meaning that the “center’s” role should be the same as the “mosque’s” role during the time of God’s prophet, … when he marched to “settle” the Dawa’ in its first generation in Madina. from the mosque, he drew the Islamic life and provided to the world the most magnificent and fabulous civilization humanity knew.
This mandates that, eventually, the region, the branch and the Usra turn into “operations rooms” for planning, direction, monitoring and leadership for the Islamic center in order to be a role model to be followed. (emphasis added).10
Whatever he wishes to name his planned Islamic center at Ground Zero — Cordoba House or Park 51, Islamic cultural center or mosque — Muslim Brother Feisal Abdul Rauf clearly follows the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood strategic mandate for North American, which his father followed in 1965 — decades before it was even set to paper. Rauf senior secretly bought two thirds of a prime 3rd Avenue Manhattan block for a personal Islamic “trust” with $1.3 million in funding from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Libya. 11 Likewise, only when the E. 96th St. Islamic Cultural Center of New York opened in 1992 did Rauf le père reveal that $17 million in construction funding emanated from Malaysia and 45 other Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) nations. 12 By 2010, the enormous upper 3rd Ave. Islamic complex had added another two buildings. Since 1984, its founders envisioned apartment units restricted to Muslims alone. 13
The Muslim Brotherhood clearly spelled it out in Article 17. Building Islamic centers equals building military “battalions,” points from which to later stage the planned destruction of the West.
FamilySecurityMatters.org Contributor Alyssa A. Lappen is a U.S.-based investigative journalist focusing on the Middle East and Islam.

Steve Emerson has unearthed 13 hours of audio tape of Imam Rauf. Emerson and his team of investigators has spent the past four weeks going through the newly found material. Rauf is a “radical extremist cleric who cloaks himself in sheep’s clothing.”
Defending wahhabism – a puritanical version of Islam that governs Saudi Arabia
Calling for the elimination of Israel by claiming a one-nation state, meaning no more Jewish State.
Defending Bin Laden’s violence
Demonstrating that there is a lot more to this man than merely a cleric.
The American public now sees the “deception perpetrated by all these Islamic groups that claim they are against violence and terrorism and insist that their rights be respected but in reality are fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Emerson states there is “definitely fraud involved in the entities that Rauf created in the last decade that are co-mingled.” Emerson took it to the IRS, who said, “you have a case.”
There is intel that the shady developers, the Gamal brothers, will be going to radical Islamic organizations to serve as connectors — CAIR, MPAC — so that they do their bidding for the money.
The mosque “is going to be a magnet for radicals.” Emerson is not opposed to the building of mosques. He is “opposed to the building of radical mosques.” ……”Unfortunately 80% of the mosques in the United States are controlled by the Wahhabists. That’s the reality. No one wants to admit it. They’re the ones that attract terrorists.”
The month of Ramadan, the month of fasting, has a special status as the month of religious spirituality and devotion. However, in Muslim tradition it is also perceived as a month of Jihad, a month in which Allah grants military victories to His believers.  It was during Ramadan that Muslims triumphed in many battles throughout the history of Jihad for the sake of Allah – among them the battle of Badr in 624,  the conquest of Mecca in 630 and of Andalusia in 711, the battle of Al-Zallaqa (in Andalusia) in 1086,  the battle of Ein Jalut in 1260,  as well as the 1973 War (called The Ramadan War).
Given the historic religious and military significance of Ramadan, Islamist groups, as well as some mainstream Arab organizations, escalate incitement to terrorism during this period.  The following are several recent examples…
And for the apologists who will tell you that Islam does not condone jihad, refer them to this recent statement from a Saudi sheikh:
Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, a member of the senior council of Wahhabi clerics responsible for writing Saudi school text books, states: “Slavery is part of Islam. Slavery is part of jihad and jihad will remain as long as there is Islam. It has not been abolished.”
When this evidence is evaluated systematically, the only rational conclusion is that Islam’s lone prophet was a ruthless terrorist, a mass-murderer, a thief, slave trader, rapist and pedophile. Prophet of Doom is Islam’s Terrorist Dogma in Muhammad’s Own Word
One of the nation’s top intelligence officials was stunned by what he heard in that secret, underground facility.
Jack Tomarchio, the Department of Homeland Security’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis at the time, had flown from Washington to Ohio earlier that spring day for a briefing on the Buckeye State’s latest efforts against terrorism. Now, as heavy winds battered the streets above, two Ohio Homeland Security officials told him how the capitals of Ohio and Minnesota had become havens for refugees of war-torn Somalia.
“Get out of town!” Tomarchio remembers saying in surprise. “Why did they go to Minnesota? It’s freezing up there. Why don’t they go to Arizona, where it’s desert-like?”
Al Shabab fighters
Will Al Shabab Attack Inside U.S.? U.S. underestimated potential threat of Somali terror group
Then the two briefers told Tomarchio they were becoming increasingly concerned about “radical mosques” in Columbus, Ohio, where imams “considered to be a little fiery” would come from Somalia and preach anti-Western messages to the growing Somali community, Tomarchio recalls about that day in 2006.
It marked one of the first times a U.S. counterterrorism official was warned that Islamic extremists in Somalia could pose a threat to the U.S. homeland — not just a threat to the Horn of Africa or U.S. interests there.
* Exerpt From ‘Rag Tag Group of Kids’ to ‘Foreign Terrorist Organization’
Al Shabab’s name first emerged in U.S. intelligence reports in July 2006, shortly after Usama bin Laden posted a message online warning the international community to stay out of Somalia. At the time, what U.S. officials called a “loose coalition of Islamic insurgents” known as the Islamic Courts Union and their “extremist faction” were fighting the relatively new Transitional Federal Government. The “extremist faction” dubbed themselves Al Shabab — or “The Youth” in Arabic.
~I JUST finished watching this & although I would never post a full length video, I felt this one was important for anyone one of us who has either fought the War on Terror following 9/11 or is JUST wondering how on earth we are producing so very many American Jihadists. I felt this episode was an important one to watch, as I hope you do also. I also felt it was important for those of you not familiar with Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki, that you do to get to know him & all those who wish to take down our country. This episode will be a great asset for your knowledge on how their minds work, how they twist islam from a religion to extremism & what makes them tick. It is our goal at JUST Piper to inform. ~JP
So the big question now: Will Al Shabab launch an attack inside the United States?
Some current and former officials say they’re skeptical, believing if it happens it won’t be anytime soon. While acknowledging that the chances of such an attack have “probably” increased over the past two years, the senior intelligence official said Al Shabab still has limited reach and limited intentions.
“They’ve now gone beyond Somali borders to hit Uganda, but is hitting Uganda and hitting Buffalo (N.Y.) the same thing? No,” the official said. “It’s substantially different. Getting from Mogadishu to Kampala is relatively simple.”
More importantly, the senior intelligence official said, Al Shabab’s “number one goal” is “not to win the global jihad, it’s to turn Somalia into a Shabab-ville,” where strict Islamic law rules everything, and he hasn’t seen any “convincing evidence that they’ve refocused on the West at large.”
* Exerpt ‘Would Speak Different Today’
Mudd said he “would speak different today” than he did during that March 2009 hearing, insisting “the temperature’s been lowered” on the ground in Somalia and within Somali communities in the United States.
Not only have some foreign forces opposed by Al Shabab already left Somalia, but the FBI investigation and reaction from Somalis inside the United States seem to be having an effect.
At least 26 men and women spanning eight states have now been charged for either joining Al Shabab, planning to do so, or trying to help others get there. Of those in custody, at least five have pleaded guilty.
At the same time, Somalis inside the United States decided, “We got to get our arms around this because we don’t want our kids going over there getting whacked,” Mudd said. The senior intelligence official agreed, describing Somali communities as “horrified” that some of their own were joining Al Shabab.
As for Tomarchio, four years after his underground briefing in Ohio and after first hearing of Al Shabab, he also said he believes an Al Shabab strike inside the United States is “unlikely” anytime soon. But, he said, it’s too early to “write off the future operational capabilities of Al Shabab.”
“We did this with Al Qaeda years ago,” he said. “And what did that give us? 9/11.”
The developers of the Ground Zero mosque are refusing to flat out reject cash for the project from Holocaust-denying Iranian nuke nut Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
“I can’t comment on that” was the reply of mosque spokesman Oz Sultan yesterday when asked specifically if the fund-raising would extend to Iran and Saudi Arabia. “We’ll look at all available options within the United States to start.”
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the leader of the project known as Park51, has said at meetings with downtown officials that he would raise money for the 13-story mosque from local Muslims, foundations and the sale of bonds.
But in an interview with a London-based Arab newspaper earlier this year, he admitted his fund-raising would also extend to Muslim nations around the world.
The possibility of tapping the radical rogue Islamic state of Iran for funds comes as the United States is stepping up sanctions on the regime in retaliation for its support of terrorism and what is feared to be an illegal nuclear-weapons development program.
Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday weighed in on the controversy, saying she wants to know about the funding for the mosque — but also calling for a probe into funding for the project’s opponents.
During an interview with a San Francisco radio station, Pelosi said opponents are trying to politicize the project. She told the station she wants to know: “How is this being ginned up?”
The demand infuriated mosque opponent Debra Burlingame, whose brother was a pilot aboard one of the hijacked airliners on 9/11.
“This is all out of our pockets. Nobody is funding us a dime,” Burlingame said of herself and other 9/11 families opposing the mosque.
Bipartisan opposition grew yesterday when Howard Dean — former head of the Democratic National Committee — called the mosque near Ground Zero “a real affront to people who’ve lost their lives, including Muslims.”
Yesterday, the mosque’s developers said they are “committed to maintaining the current planned location,” according to a statement on their blog.
The statement came as Rauf began a Mideast tour on behalf of the State Department.
Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said the trip to Bahrain, Qatar and Abu Dhabi will cost taxpayers $16,000. He said that Rauf isn’t going to use the time in the Mideast to raise funds for his mosque.
Despite political fallout, President Obama yesterday said he has “no regrets” over the comments he made Friday about the right of Muslims to build a mosque near Ground Zero.
But his voice of support during a White House dinner for Muslim leaders hasn’t done anything to convince some Americans he isn’t a Muslim himself.
A Time Magazine poll of 1,002 Americans, taken after the speech, found that 24 percent believe Obama is Muslim and only 47 percent believe he is Christian. Nearly a quarter didn’t know either way. He is, in fact, a Christian.
