Eight Muslim men in St. Louis charged with buying automatic weapons and explosives

“We’re going to war” –Thaer Abde SUMAD, defendant

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

3 May 2007: In the HQ INTEL-ALERT Private Intelligence Report issued on February 4, 2007, we reported extensively about Muslim men inside the U.S., adhering to the Islamist ideology of jihad, preparing for war on the streets of America. The “insider” reports are very troubling and are purposely being downplayed by official sources and go largely unreported in the media. One case, however, can serve as an example of what is taking place all across the U.S. involving the procurement and disbursement of weapons to Muslim “jihadists.” On Tuesday, May 2, 2007, a federal indictment was unsealed in the U.S. federal court in St. Louis naming eight Islamic men as defendants in a case involving the buying, selling or hiding of automatic weapons, an anti-personnel mine and other explosives.

Defendant Thaer Abde SUMAD, 23″We’re going to war”

The case originated with the arrest of Mousa M. ABUELAWI, 22, of Creve Coeur, MO on December 29, 2006. He was charged with three counts of illegal possession or distribution of a machine gun and conspiracy to violate machine gun statutes. A superseding indictment unsealed yesterday, charges ABUELAWI and seven others with machine gun charges and charges of conspiracy, lying to the FBI and other firearms violations. The other seven defendants identified in the indictment are identified as: Thaer Abde SUMAD, 23, of Florissant, MO, Abdikarin WARSAME, 28, Charley M. HUNT Jr., 45, Darnell T. THORNTON, 25, and Hussein Ali NURE, 29, all from Jennings, MO, Mohamed JUDEH, 20, of Maryland Heights and Otha L. BAKER, 20, of St. Louis. If found guilty of the charges, the men face 5-10 years in prison.

As we reported last February, the more important aspect of this matter involves the stockpiling of weapons, including significant explosives, by core groups of Islamic terror cells inside the U.S. According to our investigation, these types of incidents are on the rise, but are being downplayed by federal officials and the media. A law enforcement source interviewed for our newsletter report stated: “Public information officers or spokesmen for law enforcement agencies are purposely downplaying and in some cases, lying outright to the public about arrests of Muslims in the U.S.,” stated one federal law enforcement official during our discussion last week. “We have been told what to say and just as important, what not to say, and warned not to deviate from that ‘template.'”

“We are discovering more and more trafficking in arms and even explosives, the stuff you see in the Middle East. These are the kind of things I saw after my stint in Desert Storm, when I was coming back and would see actual open-air markets where you could buy just about anything.”

This source agreed that the men involved in what has become known as the “paintball jihad” case are good examples of activities by Muslim men in the U.S. that is on the rise. In addition to buying weapons and whatever else they can get their hands on, they are practicing urban combat. Since it has become more difficult for them to leave the country or train with actual weapons, they will get together and train using paintball guns. They will engage in paramilitary-style training right under our noses, and lie about it to our faces. They are protected, in some cases, by the religious Imams, some who even encourage or schedule such outings.

We’re talking about professional Muslim men, mosque leaders, leaders within our communities who are actually helping young men train for the eventuality of urban combat. They know what they are doing, yet they lie right to our faces about these activities… and we’re told by our supervisors that we have to accept what they tell us at face value when they know damn well they are lying.” This federal official also added that they have to be cautious about what they write (in terms of reports, investigative files), and are told to write them as if they would be given to the local mosque. “In some cases, I think they are [showing Muslim leaders sensitive files].”

In the case of ABUELAWI and the other seven defendants, the men met at gas stations located in north St. Louis between August 2006 and January 2007 to buy or transfer automatic weapons and explosives. In the original documents charging Abuelawi, Sumad is quoted in a meeting with ABUELAWI and a government informer as saying that “he wants to buy as many explosives as possible because, ‘we’re going to war.'”

France: Sarkozy Wins – ‘Youth’s Riot’

 20060622economisteurabia.jpg

The victory of Nicolas Sarkozy is major news. France now has a tough, unashamedly pro-American president with a clear understanding of the threat from radical Islam. It’s a real sea change in European politics.

Is Sarkozy the Beginning of the End of Muhammedanism in Europe? 

Mainstream media apparently have better things to report, because there’s almost nothing on the wires about the disturbances in France. Luckily we have the blogosphere, and No Pasaran is on top of the news as the “youths” begin ratcheting up the violence and Islamic leaders issue threats: More violence following Sarkozy’s big win.

Mohamed Mechmache, President of AC Le Feu — an association created following the November 2005 riots, has ominously warned that that “France did not understand the message sent during the riots in October and November of 2005.”

20070506francecars01.jpg

In Lille, just before 22h00, around 200 anarchists French youths with black flags grouped around the Grand Place and chanted “Fascist Sarko, the people will have your hide”. After pelting riot police, the demonstrators were dispersed. One demonstrator was injured.

Firemen in the south of Lille have answered 20 alarms for torched vehicles.

Around 100 demonstrators grouped around the Place Kléber in Strasbourg slightly after 21h00 and chanted “Sarkozy fasciste”.

Stay tuned. This is going to be interesting!

Update:

This story is from The Times

The Left accepts its election defeat in France with its customary grace:
A commentary from Andrew Bolt:

VIOLENCE marked Nicolas Sarkozy’s victory in the French presidential election last night as police fought running battles with demonstrators in Paris and other cities.

Clashes erupted in the centre of the capital when about 2,000 people gathered at the Place de la Bastille – the traditional meeting place of the French Left – in a show of support for the defeated Socialist candidate, Ségolène Royal.


What began as a peaceful protest swiftly turned sour as about a hundred protesters smashed cars and bus shelters and threw bricks and bottles at the police.

This is violence provoked not be anything Sarkozy has actually done, since he hasn’t even assumed the presidency. It is violence provoked simply by the result of a free and democratic vote.

VIOLENCE marked Nicolas Sarkozys victory in the French presidential election last night as police fought running battles with demonstrators in Paris and other cities.
Clashes erupted in the centre of the capital when about 2,000 people gathered at the Place de la Bastille – the traditional meeting place of the French Left – in a show of support for the defeated Socialist candidate, Ségolène Royal.

20070506francecars03.jpg

What began as a peaceful protest swiftly turned sour as about a hundred protesters smashed cars and bus shelters and threw bricks and bottles at the police.

One climbed the statue in the centre of the square, while others held a protest on the steps of the Bastille Opera House. Riot police responded with teargas followed by several charges across the Bastille.

To the south of the square a car was set alight, and to the north a hail of projectiles and fireworks rained down on gendarmerie units brought in as reinforcements. The clashes lasted about an hour and a half before officers drove a final group of casseurs away from the Opera House and into the surrounding roads.

A long-haired man was frog-marched away, limping between two large riot police officers. Behind him a local prostitute in a tight, white dress, caught in the violence, staggered out of a cloud of teargas, holding her face and coughing.

A police officer said: “This has been quite violent and was similar to the sort of things we saw during the demonstrations last year. It’s always the same story, with the professional thugs getting in on the demonstration and wreaking havoc.”

Noemie Capart, 24, a psychology student and supporter of Ms Royal, said: “There weren’t very many demonstrators, but all of a sudden the police charged out with extreme violence.

“I really don’t think it was justified. They used an incredible amount of teargas and I was caught in the middle of it. I was choking and very, very frightened. I think the police wanted to put on a show of force and I hope this isn’t an indication of what Sarkozy’s presidency is going to be like.”

* A true sad saying from a typical left wing moonbat

Standing next to an Opal Corsa with its windscreen smashed, Pascal Poiset, 39, a chauffeur, said: “We always get these thugs in France and I wasn’t at all surprised that the evening ended in violence here. But we have known worse over the years.”

As he spoke the police made a final sweep through the square, leaving behind a scene of desolation. Barriers had been torn down, rubbish bins overturned and graffiti scrawled on walls. The road was covered in broken glass, stones and empty CS gas canisters. A youth ran past shouting: “Mort à Sarkozy (Death to Sarkozy).”

* Didn’t I say this will become interesting?

In Nantes, 600 demonstrators were dispersed by police using teargas as they approached Mr Sarkozy’s local campaign headquarters.

Canberra: Sheik n’ the bloody Mosque

Muslims to seek restraining order on hardline cleric

Richard Kerbaj-The Australian

MUSLIM leaders in the nation’s capital will take out a restraining order against a hardline cleric who is accused of inciting violence and “anti-Western” sentiment among his followers.
The move by the Islamic society of ACT to ban Sheik Mohammed Swaiti from Canberra’s Abu Bakr Mosque comes after a Muslim leader was bashed by a group of the cleric’s supporters.
The council’s secretary, Kurt Kennedy, yesterday told The Australian he was set upon by nine men aged in their 20s, including Palestinian-born Sheik Swaiti’s son, at the mosque’s front entrance last Friday.

The bashing followed the council’s decision to remove the imam from his position as the mosque’s spiritual head. Mr Kennedy had announced Sheik Swaiti would no longer deliver Friday sermons.

nlapic-an12942928-9-v.jpeg

Sheik Swaiti ‘will be Imam till he dies’

Shortly after the announcement Sheik Swaiti stood in front of his worshippers and screamed “I am the imam of the mosque, I will be here until the day I die”, Islamic Society of ACT vice-president Mohammed Berjaoui said yesterday.

* Sounds familiar? Recently Sheik al Hilali, otherwise know as ‘catmeat sheik’ was also ‘sacked’ from the Lakemba mosque but is not only still there, he recently proclaimed that ‘only Allah can sack him’…

Waiting for Allah…

Mr Kennedy, 35, who was pushed and threatened by Sheik Swaiti’s followers inside the mosque following his announcement, was beaten up while waiting for a lift home. He was treated for cuts on his face and head at Canberra Hospital.

“There was a lot of blood coming out of the cut across my left eye-brow,” said Mr Kennedy, who converted to Islam 11 years ago. “What sort of teaching (has Swaiti) been doing to raise young children like this?”

* What kind of teaching? Shurely nothing that’s not in the Koran and the Sunnah…

Mr Berjaoui yesterday said his organisation would this week seek a restraining order against Sheik Swaiti, who is being investigated over claims he failed to pay income tax on thousands of dollars he allegedly received from the Saudi embassy.

We will ban the imam and his followers from coming to the mosque,” Mr Berjaoui said. “Our aim is to take out a restraining order, because he’s the one who is inciting violence.”

* “Kill the infidels, kill the Jews”- standard sermon in any mosque, why change now?

The Islamic council’s push to replace Sheik Swaiti with a full-time moderate Turkish-born imam, Yahya Atay, came after The Weekend Australian reported last month that Sheik Swaiti praised mujahideen (Muslim holy warriors) in his sermon.

A defiant Sheik Swaiti, who works full time at the Australian Tax Office, rejected the council’s notice to vacate his office by last Friday, Mr Berjaoui said.

The Pakistani embassy in Canberra backed Sheik Swaiti to stay on as spiritual leader in a letter obtained by The Australian.

* Is Sheik Swaiti an agent of Pakistan or of Saudi Arabia or is he a double agent?

The council wrote back to the Pakistani embassy advising it against meddling in community affairs. Council president Sabrija Poskovic wrote to Foreign Minister Alexander Downer, urging action against the embassy.

Mr Berjaoui accused Sheik Swaiti of preventing Canberra’s Muslim community from integrating into the mainstream.

* He is a good muslim, no doubt… ‘don’t take unbelievers for friends or protectors’- sez the Koran…
Sheik Swaiti has been spiritual leader at Abu Bakr mosque, which is run by the Islamic Society of ACT, for 13 years.

* Actually, there is no spirituality in Islam. Check it out…

The tax office, which refused to comment on its inquiry into Sheik Swaiti, is investigating allegations that he failed to declare clerical allowances of up to $US30,000 ($36,000) a year, allegedly paid to him by the Saudi Government’s Dawah (donations) Office.

Hamas: “The extermination of the Jews is good for the inhabitants of the worlds.”

More genocide talk from jihadists, while the world continues to yawn. By Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook for PMW:carterhitlerjordan2.jpg

Bestsellers in Jordan (and Turkey) Carter’s ‘Apartheid’ and Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’


*
The extermination of Jews is Allah’s will and is for the benefit of all humanity, according to an article in the Hamas paper, Al-Risalah. The author of the article, Kan’an Ubayd, explains that the suicide operations carried out by Hamas are being committed solely to fulfill Allah’s wishes. Furthermore, Allah demanded this action, because “the extermination of the Jews is good for the inhabitants of the worlds.”
The killing of innocent Jews by terrorist attacks is portrayed as Allah’s plan for the benefit of humanity.

It should be noted that Hamas’s justification for the extermination of Jews, both as God’s will and for the benefit of humanity, echoes Hitler’s words in Mein Kampf:

“In this case the only salvation remaining was war… If the Jew with the help of his Marxist creed is victorious over the peoples of this world, then his crown will be the funeral wreath of humanity… Thus I believe today that I am acting according to the will of the almighty Creator: when I defend myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.” (Mein Kampf)
In another parallel to the Nazi genocide of Jews, the writer says he wants to be sure that “everyone will know” that these murderous actions are “not of [Hamas’s] own accord” – an echo of the Nazi war criminals’ repeated justification of their actions with the defense that they were only following orders.

The fact that these orders are said to be divine in nature makes Hamas’s justification for the murder of Jews even more ominous.

Following is the excerpt from the Hamas article:

“We find more than once condemnation and denunciation to the resistance operations and bombings [suicide attacks], carried out by Hamas and the Palestinian resistance branches. There is no other choice but to use restraint regarding the condemnation, the attaching of the label of terror [to “resistance”], and the assembling of conferences [for] condemnation [of the attacks]. [This] so that everyone will know, that we did this only because our lord commanded so, “I did it not of my own accord” [*] and so that people will know that the extermination of Jews is good for the inhabitants of the worlds on a land, to which Allah gave his blessing for the sake of the inhabitants of the worlds.” [Al-Risalah, April 23, 2007]

Thailand: The South is ‘restive’ again – Jihadists kill five, including two Muslim children

* Note that the jihadists — “militants” — are in this story shooting and killing other Muslims, and that meanwhile the Muslim women and children demonstrators are demanding the release of the “militants.” This suggests that Muslims who are perceived as collaborating with the government are being targeted (along with their families, apparently), in order to swing around the rest to supporting the jihadists.

By the way, “restive” has become the mainstream media’s Homeric epithet of choice for the jihad in southern Thailand.

“Five killed in Thailand’s restive south,” from AFP, with thanks to JW

Five people, including two Muslim children, have been killed by suspected Islamic rebels in separate attacks in Thailand’s violence-torn south, police have said.
A group of militants ambushed a motorcycle late on Friday (local time) and shot dead a 45-year-old Muslim man and his two children, an 11-year-old girl and a seven-year-old boy, in Yala, one of three Muslim-majority provinces.

Also in Yala, a 37-year-old Muslim man was hacked to death by militants in public view at a market late Friday, police said.

They also found the body of a man in a river in the province.

While the case is still under investigation, police suspected he was a victim of Thailand’s three-year insurgency in the south bordering Malaysia.

Police said several hundred Muslim women and children also blocked a highway in Yala on Saturday as they continued their sit-in for the third consecutive day to demand authorities release suspected militants.

Update: 9 More Killed in restive Muslim -South 

From AFP 

At least nine people including three children were killed in a bomb attack and shootings by suspected Islamic rebels in Thailand’s restive Muslim-majority south, police said Saturday.

A 15-kilogram (nine pounds) bomb hidden under a bridge went off late Saturday, killing a two-year-old Muslim girl and two border patrol officers in Yala, one of three violence-torn southern provinces bordering Malaysia.

The adult victims were among six border patrol officers travelling on motorcycle, police said, adding the bomb was set off by remote control.

The attack capped a day of violence in Yala, where at least six people were killed in separate attacks by suspected Islamic militants.

A Muslim man was gunned down Saturday in a drive-by shooting, while rebels ambushed a motorcycle late Friday and shot dead a Muslim father and his two children, an 11-year-old girl and a seven-year-old boy.

A Muslim man was hacked to death by militants in public view at a Yala market late Friday, and police found the body of another man in a river in the province, also a suspected victim of Thailand’s three-year insurgency.

Police said several hundred Muslim women and children blocked a highway in Yala Saturday as they continued their sit-in for a third consecutive day to demand authorities release suspected militants.

Earlier in the day, some 20 kilometres (12 miles) away from the sit-in, hundreds of Buddhists also took to the streets, demanding the Muslims end the road blockade.

More than 2,100 people have been killed in the ongoing insurgency in the three southern provinces of Yala, Narathiwat and Pattani.

The Muslim-majority provinces were once an autonomous sultanate, until the region was annexed by mainly Buddhist Thailand a century ago. Separatist unrest has erupted periodically ever since.

The military-backed government, which came to power after a September coup, has made peace-building efforts in a bid to rein in the unrest, but violence has escalated in the last six months.

More news: Army, police step up security after Bangkok bomb 

BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thailand’s police and army will tighten security in Bangkok with extra checkpoints around the sprawling metropolis after a small bomb exploded near a royal palace, police said on Sunday.

Investigators later suggested Muslim militants waging a three-year separatist insurgency in the Muslim-majority southern provinces may have had a hand in the bombs.

Cairns Post calls Mosque ‘Temple’ – Objecting Residents are ‘Crusaders’- of course!

Locals show no faith in temple bid

by Bronwyn Cummings

The clueless far left nutroots from the Cairns Post are so obsessed with multiculti ‘tolerance & diversity’ and so befuddled with ignorance that they call a proposed mega-mosque in a quiet street a ‘temple’- resident objectors are smeared as leading a ‘crusade’

templar-battle.jpg

Sheik yer’mami warned about this here: Inside the forbidden fortress

mosque.jpg

and here: What is a mosque? A simple place of worship?

Excerpt: No. There is ample evidence that mosques are monuments of Islamic conquest. Mosques are symbols of Arab Imperialism and supremacy. Mosques, as we can see around the world, are centers for plotting and subversion, they are used as bunkers and places for weapons storage. Mosques are bridgeheads and fortresses in the Dar al Harb, symbols of conquest in the lands of the infidels, which is yet to be conquered for Islam. Mosques are indoctrination centers where the soldiers of Allah are incited to wage violent jihad against unbelievers and Jews.

*

Update:  “We can’t interfere in any way with a mosque unless they are shooting at us”

Western (i.e. civilised) fighting forces like the US, Brits, and Israelis just don’t seem to understand that you cannot fight the Islamafascists with one hand tied behind your back. All over the Muslim world MUSLIMS are bombing mosques and mosques are used as the nerve centre for weapons caches and terrorist activity. Yet western forces have rules of engagement that forbid them to even enter a mosque. In Michael Totten’s excellent report of his embedding with a group of US soldiers in Baghdad searching for a senior Al Quaeda operative includes the following dialoge (when four terrorists are spotted on the roof of a mosque):

“They have a little bunker up there,” he continued. “You can’t see it from here, but it has sand bags and sniper netting around it.”

“What are you going to do?” I said.

“Nothing,” he said. “It’s a mosque.”

“They’re violating curfew,” I said, “and stalking us in the dark from a militarized mosque. And you aren’t going to do anything?”

“Our rules of engagement say we can’t interfere in any way with a mosque unless they are shooting at us,” he said.

We left our stalker with his “co-workers” and walked away.

And people wonder why the Americans aren’t winning in Iraq!

Cairns ‘Crusaders’

Suburban crusade: North Cairns residents led by Peter Roners (front) are waging a battle against a plan to build a mosque amid a row of character homes in Dunn St. Cairns City Council is awaiting a heritage report before making its decision.

* Concerned residents are presented as some kind of hicks and get little sympathy from the Cairns Fishwrap.

* Recently a Cairns businessman saw his business interests, his commercial properties and his residency listed in the Cairns fishwrap as the ‘man behind sheik Yer’mami’- By writing his full name five times and setting him up for assassination by the lunatic fringe of Muhammedan radicals, a reporting ratbag by the name of Gavin King exposed himself as a hateful antisemite flash-as-a-rat-with-a-gold_thumb.jpg

* After years and years of rape-epidemics from Stockholm to Oslo, (raping infidel women are ‘war booty’) honor killings in London, Paris, Berlin, Nice, after the French intifada, Cronulla riots (which riots?) seven thousand terrorist attacks by Islamic radicals after 9/11, (who counted before?) after Bali one and two, Madrid, London, Beslan and uncounted atrocities on unbelievers and Jews the moonbats would have us believe that all is well and if we just sing ‘kumbayahh’ the soldiers of Allah will no longer wage jihad against us.

Unfortunately, that’s not how it works. Ask Chamberlain:

And here’s Sir Winston who had to clean up after his mess

Anyway, here’s today’s news from the fishwrap:

RESIDENTS fear plans to build a mosque among their old Queenslander homes could shatter the tranquillity of their quiet North Cairns street.

The concerned householders say they are not opposed to the prayer sessions already held in the house at 31 Dunn St but they do not want a purpose-built mosque on the 637sq m block.

Cairns City Council deferred the development application for the site on April 12 pending a heritage report.

The application was to build a prayer hall, with a dome height of 8.5m, a tearoom and 11 car parking spaces on the block, which faces the Kuranda Railway line and Pioneer Cemetery.

“The building of this size and design will not fit in keeping with the character of the street,” resident Peter Romer said.

“Residents have not objected to the low-key usage of the existing house as an Islamic centre, however the proposed building is totally alien from the surrounding homes.”

The residents this week met to discuss the future of the site, where a 55-year-old Queenslander house now stands.

Far Northern Islamic leader Imam Abdul Aziz said the prayers had been conducted five times a day for seven years with no complaints.

“Everything will remain the same but we will have a bigger place of worship and car parking,” Mr Aziz said.

Mr Aziz said the site already had material change of use approval for a place of worship.

In 2000, conditions on the site were set by Cairns City Council including a garden buffer, on-site car parking and a restriction of 20 worshippers.

Resident Bill Bradley said the conditions had not been met and most were not included in the development application.

The residents are about to submit their second petition to the council and have already had their previous objections noted.

“We don’t have a problem with the mosque the way it is, except for the cars parking out the front,” nearby neighbour Kartrina Santo said.

“We are not an Islamic community but at any rate, I wouldn’t want a church of any religion built there.”

* Other places also object to the building of mosques:

“There’s a mosque in The Hague”

And all over Rotterdam, and Amsterdam, and in Paris and Marseilles and Lyons and Toulouse, in London and Manchester and Birmingham and Leeds,in Rome and in Milan, in Berlin and Hamburg and Frankfurt, and in thousands of other cities and even small towns all over Europe. The Saudis and other rich Arabs fund them, just as they pay for the land, and the construction, and the maintenance, of mosques all over this country, from Boston to sunny California. Most of the mosques in the Western world are not paid for by the locals, but by very rich foreign Muslims — governments, institutions, individuals. After all, not all of that ten trillion dollars in oil revenues that Muslim states have received since 1973 alone goes for arms purchases, and palaces for the boys, and wages for those millions of non-Muslim wage-slaves who keep Saudi Arabia and the smaller sheikdoms going, and gambling in London and Monte Carlo, and call girls (the Arabs especially contemptuous of the West for allowing “their women” to be bought and used in such a way, by their sworn enemies, the Arab Muslims), and endless shopping in the funfair-cum-brothel of Europe,

Occasionally local opposition can stop the building of a mosque, but not because the mosque has been paid for by sinister foreigners, nor because mosques are far more than merely religious establishments but politico-religious outposts of the Army of Islam, and inevitably, unless subject to constant round-the-clock monitoring, will tend to have khutbas based on the almost-unavoidable subject with which the Qur’an and Hadith are full: to wit, the permaent state of war that exists between Believers and Infidels, and the need for Muslims to work to remove all obstacles to the spread, and dominance, of Islam.

Western governments simply will not stop to examine, will not dare even to discuss, the nature, the meaning, the menace of Islam. Those whose duty it is to protect us will continue to pretend that what goes on in mosques is as “religious” in nature as what goes on in churches or synagogues. But it isn’t. Visits to mosques, or tapes of what goes on, or the testimony of those who have jettisoned Islam but can still recall what they heard (or if their faces are not recognized, enter mosques still) confirm that what goes on is dangerous to Infidels, to their legal and political institutions, to their physical security.

If the national governments of the Western world have failed those whom they are supposed to protect, have failed to exhibit any intelligent curiosity about Islam as a Total Belief-System, and the role of the mosques as a basis for Jihad — that is, the “struggle” to promote Islam and remove all obstacles to its spread, and dominance — local governments, or local officials, have been forced to change or cancel permits by aroused citizens, who have made their cases against this or that mosque on the basis of size — the proposed mega-mosque in London appears to have been stopped — rather than on the basis of the bristling and aggressive nature of these huge structures, their minarets rising like missiles (as Erdogan once famously said).

If more non-Muslims came to understand the texts and tenets and attitudes of Islam, they would not be so uninterested in the mosque-building that goes on, sometimes even with the aid of local governments (e.g., Mayor Menino encouraging the building of the Boston Mosque, and even agreeing to sell land far below the market price), but would move heaven and earth to stop as many such projects as possible, and what’s more, to make sure that existing mosques and madrasas are monitored for the contents of what they preach (and what Muslims practice, when they are in a position to do so). The word “religion” keeps getting in the way, but greater knowledge would give Infidels the confidence not to be bamboozled or impressed by such a word, and determined not to be deterred in their opposition to mosques and madrasas, for the first is not simply, or mainly, a house of individual worship, but a center where a collectivist and aggressive Total Belief-System can more easily maintain or reinforce its hold over local Believers.

Genocidal Mullah visits Pope, when will Pope visit Teheran?

Crybaby Mullah Watch

Pope Benedict XVI shakes hands with former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami during a private meeting at the Vatican, May 4, 2007. (Osservatore Romano/Pool/Reuters)

Islamic supremacist Mohammad Khatami, Iran’s showcase “moderate,” met with Pope Benedict today: Christian-Muslim wounds still ‘very deep’: Khatami.

Robert Spencer has a great take on this at Dhimmi Watch 

Shaking hands with the Pope, Khatami could have decried the Muslim persecution of Christians, apologized for it, and called upon Muslims to treat the “People of the Book” with all the respect that Islamic apologists in the West claim they have for them. He could have told the Pope, “I deplore your remarks about Islam and Muhammad, although I am aware that you have made it clear that you do not share those sentiments, and I have determined that the best response to them is to show the world that Islam is peaceful and rational. I ask Muslims worldwide to behave in this manner, thus removing any cause anyone might have to suspect that the Emperor Manuel II Paleologos was right about our religion and our prophet.”

But he didn’t say anything like this, of course. He just whined and played the victim, after the well-established pattern of the spokesmen for his coreligionists in the West.



Don’t you wish these bloodthirsty religious fanatics would just decide whether they want to be fearsome jihad warriors or whiny crybabies.

By Philip Pullella

Former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami met Pope Benedict on Friday and said the wounds between Christians and Muslims were still “very deep,” including those caused by a controversial papal speech last September.

Khatami became one of the most prominent Muslim clerics to visit the Vatican since the Pope’s controversial Regensburg speech which angered Muslims by appearing to link Islam and violence.

“These wounds are very deep. There are many wounds and they cannot heal that easily,” Khatami told a conference in Rome just before the papal meeting, when asked if the wounds that followed the Pontiff’s speech in his native Germany had been healed.

“For sure, a meeting with the Holy Father cannot be enough to heal all these wounds but at least we are making a joint effort in order to start healing these wounds,” Khatami said.

In his September speech, the Pope quoted a 14th century Byzantine emperor as saying Islam had only brought evil to the world and that it was spread by the sword, a method that was unreasonable and contrary to God’s nature.

He used the quote to launch into a much longer discussion of the key influence of ancient Greek philosophical reasoning on the early Christian faith and invited Muslim scholars to enter into a dialogue about faith and reason with Christians.

The Pope later said he regretted any misunderstanding it caused among Muslims, after protests including attacks on churches in the Middle East and the killing of a nun in Somalia.

PROMOTING PEACE

The Vatican said Khatami and the Pope met for about 30 minutes and spoke through interpreters about the “dialogue among cultures” to overcome current tensions and promote peace.

* Islam speak for ‘surrender, pay the jiziyah or be forcibly converted or killed…’

In talks that a spokesman called cordial, they also discussed the problems of minority Christians in Iran and the Middle East and encouraged peace efforts such as the conference on Iraq’s future taking place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

At Friday morning’s conference, Khatami, speaking through a translator, said that Christianity and Islam needed to rediscover their common roots as monotheistic religions in order to improve relations.

“If Christian and Islamic societies could only rely on love and justice and get back to these founding principles and if together we fought against violence and extremism … then we can lay the foundations to heal any wound,” he said.

* The usual BS…

The conference on religious dialogue Khatami attended was to have been held in October but was postponed following the fallout in the Muslim world over Benedict’s Regensburg speech.

At the conference before meeting the Pope, Khatami said no one could use God’s name to “instigate war or hate or speak ignorantly of crusades.” He said both religions must enter a “sincere and practical dialogue and commitment to achieve peace and eliminate terrorism and war.”

* Quite right: God doesn’t call for war or hatred. But ‘Allah’ is not God. What he really means is ‘Surrender..’

* Did the pope ask him what he meant by ‘speaking ignorantly of crusades?’

Hamas Terrorist (minister) leaves Brussels after visa cancelled

* Looks like the Dutch had enough.

A terrorist in suit and tie is still a terrorist…

Palestinian government minister and Hamas member Bassem Naim was forced to fly out of Brussels on Friday after Dutch authorities cancelled his visa, the Belgian interior ministry said.

Naim, the Palestinian sports and youth minister, had planned to travel on to the Netherlands for a conference on refugees.

Speaking to Arab news channel Al-Jazeera from his plane, he said he was stopped with a companion by police at Brussels airport, during a stopover, and told his Netherlands visa had been revoked.

Interior ministry spokesman Paul Van Tigchelt confirmed to AFP that the minister was intercepted at Brussels airport at the request of the Dutch authorities.

“We were informed by the Dutch authorities that the entry visas were issued in error and that the visas had been annulled,” he said.

Belgian police told him the justice ministry in the Netherlands had cancelled the visa because he was deemed “dangerous for the security of the Dutch people”, the minister told Al-Jazeera.

Naim left for Brussels from Cairo, according to officials in Egypt, who said he was expected back in the Egyptian capital on Friday.

The European Commission has begun dealing with non-Hamas members in the Palestinian government of national unity, but Hamas is branded a terrorist group in the EU and United States.

In the West Bank city of Ramallah, information minister Mustafa Barghouti said: “We are surprised by this decision and we expect the Netherlands to take a balanced stand between Israel and the Palestinians.”

* ‘Balanced’ in Pali-speak means ‘side with us or else…’

Anti Dhimmitude in Cyprus: ‘Why Should We Adopt the Turkish Culture?’

INTERVIEW WITH CYPRIOT FOREIGN MINISTER YIORGOS LILLIKA

FROM SPIEGEL ONLINE

* Muhammedans often claim that their countries are being ‘invaded’ by western powers while deliberately ignoring the global jihad against the world that rages since 1400 years. The old chestnut that ‘no Islamic country has invaded a non Islamic country in 200 years’- is often repeated by the historically ignorant nutroots and moonbats among us who would sing ‘Kumbayah” even when the halal butchers cut their throats in front of a video camera. For starters, Indonesia immediately invaded East Timor the moment the Portugiese left. And just over 25 years ago the Turkish army invaded Cyprus, killed and raped and displaced more than 8000 people. There are currently 30-plus jihad wars in the world, from Chechnya to Kashmir, from Mindanao to Sulawesi and from Ethiopia to Nigeria. Israel is by no means the cause of the global jihad, but a scapegoat. If Israel fell today, the jihad would immediately continue against Spain, (‘Al Andaluz) Greece, France, Italy (Sicily) but not only there: The soldiers of Allah claim the world. The Koran teaches that they must ‘fight the unbelievers until all the world submits to Allah’…

Cypriot Foreign Minister Yiorgos Lillikas.

* Lillikas may not be all that savvy about the global jihad and the teachings of the Koran and the sunnah, but he understands that Turkey wants it all, and that would leave little for the Greek Cypriots.

Little progress has been made on solving the issue of a divided Cyprus since it was last addressed in December. SPIEGEL ONLINE spoke with the Cypriot foreign minister about what the Turkish crisis means for Cyprus, why the island is eager to see Turkey join the EU, and how accession is like an Anatolian bazaar.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: The road to Turkish membership in the European Union leads through Cyprus. Should Turkey not recognize Cyprus and open up trade with the country, it cannot become an EU member. But domestically, Turkey also has a lot of work left to do to implement the criteria for membership. Does the current government crisis in Turkey between the military-backed secularists and the Islamic government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan worsen Turkey’s chances of accession and lessen the chances of finding a solution to the Cyprus problem?
Yiorgos Lillikas: Both. I am afraid that every time we have a political crisis in Turkey, Cyprus pays the price, especially should the military return to power. As we have seen in the past, that would mean a more hardliner policy and a more aggressive policy toward Cyprus. Cyprus is still seen by the Turkish military as vital for the country’s security. This is a very old fashioned and outdated approach. If they don’t change, then the Cyprus problem cannot be solved and it won’t be possible for Turkey to become a member of the European Union.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Last December at the EU summit, Turkey maintained its refusal to open up all its ports and airports to traffic from Cyprus and elected not to move towards normalizing relations between the two countries. Do you think the Turkish position might soften once the upcoming elections are over?

Lillikas: I certainly hope so. In the European Union, a lot of partners thought that because of approaching elections in Turkey, the government in Ankara was unable to implement its obligations toward the European Union. If that is the case, then it can also be true of the Cyprus problem.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Given the role the military plays in Turkish political life, why should Turkey be a part of the European Union at all?

Lillikas: If Turkey doesn’t change its political culture by adopting European values, then of course it cannot become a member of the European Union. That should be clear for everybody. But we have to keep the incentives alive for Turkey. I am always opposed to those who say that Turkey should never become a member of the EU, because then, the Turkish government has no incentive to pursue reforms. But I am also opposed to those on the other extreme who say that they support Turkey unconditionally. The result is the same. If the Turkish government believes that it can become an EU member without fulfilling the criteria, then it would likewise have no incentive to reform.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Is Turkey’s desire to join the European Union the only lever that Cyprus has in negotiations with Turkey over the potential reunification of the island?

Lillikas:
Unfortunately yes. We are too small to have other levers. This is why I am dumbfounded when Turkish politicians say they would never accept the withdrawal of Turkish troops from Cyprus for security reasons. Come on! Maybe we are not very clever, us Cypriots, but we are not so stupid that we would attack Turkey.

Update: The strange politics of the EU

Army meddling ‘threatens Turkey’s EU chances’

condi_baseball_2.jpg

The EU, like Condoleeza Rice,would apparently prefer Turkey as an Islamic state to Turkey as a secular state under military rule.

By Amberin Zaman and Damien McElroy in the Telegraph,with thanks to Jihad Watch
The European Union warned the Turkish military yesterday that its interference in the country’s politics could jeopardise its chances of joining the EU. “The EU is founded on the principles of liberty, democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, the rule of law, and the supremacy of democratic civilian power over the military,” Olli Rehn, the EU enlargement commissioner, said in a statement.
“If a country wants to become a member of the Union, it needs to respect these principles.”

The comments came after Turkey’s prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, (a convicted Islamo-fascist who did jail time for his belief) asked parliament to call a general election in July, five months early, after the country’s highest court annulled a vote to choose a new president.

The army warned at the weekend that it would intervene if Abdullah Gul, the ruling AK party’s foreign minister, was made president.

Opposition leaders fear Mr Gul’s election would enable the government to pursue an “Islamic agenda” it has so far kept in the shadows….

Onur Oymen, the hawkish deputy chairman of the main opposition Republican People’s Party, said the secular basis of the Turkish state was the true guarantee of democracy.

You can’t have democracy without secularism,” he said. “The notion of moderate Islam to check radical Islam is nonsense. This idea being promoted by certain countries should be abandoned.”
