Bucktooth Bashir an Al Qaeda chief? Who would have thought?

Terror suspect Baasyr refuses to speak, claiming police questions are haram, prohibited

(Asia News, Mathias Hariyadi, thanks to the RoP)

After a lifetime of hate preaching, terror plotting and head-banging, the old geezer is finally in the dock. But don’t you dare ask him about his motives, that will anger  his imaginary ‘Allah’.

Abu Bakar Baasyr accuses investigators of complicity with the United States and Israel. Police claims it has evidence of the cleric’s guilt. In his hometown of Solo, Muslim demonstrators clamour his arrest will “draw God’s (Allah’s) wrath”.

Jakarta (AsiaNews) – Abu Bakar Baasyr (pictured), an extremist Muslim cleric accused of terrorism, is refusing to answer police questions because in his view they are “haram”, i.e. prohibited under Islamic law. Arrested on 9 August in Banjar Patroman, West Java, he has accused investigators of being accomplices of the United States and Israel.
The authorities suspect Baasyr of being the head of Al-Qaidah, a terrorist cell based in Aceh, and al-Qaeda’s top man in Southeast Asia. He has also been charged with funding a training camp for terrorists in Aceh to the tune of a million dollars.

Despite Baasyr’s refusal to answer questions, police spokesman Inspector General Edward Aritonang said that the authorities had evidence against the preacher, including video footage and records of financial transactions.

“Our information points to him as Al-Qaidah chief,” Aritonang explained. “This group of terrorists is new and includes various extremists, with members from Jemaah Islamiyah, Indonesian Islamic State, Jemaah Anshorut Tauhid (JAT) and Kompak”.

Baasyr’s lawyer, Achmad Midan, did confirm that the cleric, who heads JAT, funded paramilitary training for the al-Qaidah group, but denied that it was for terrorist purposes. Instead, he claimed it was designed to prepare men to fight in the Gaza Strip, should Israelis attack Muslims.

In Baasyr’s hometown of Solo, Central Java, Muslims took to the streets waving banners to protest against police and the Densus-88 anti-terror squad. One read, “This arrest will cause natural disaster and draw God’s wrath”.

At the same time in Malaysia, the authorities detained Mustawan Ahbab on charges of helping Baasyr raise funds to sponsor terrorist actions.

Bin Laden Son Says U.S. May Agree to Let in Family

That’s the guy who’s   “Hearing Voices“, what could go wrong?

Not enough Islamic terrorists in the US

Give me your poor & huddled masses:

(Bloomberg) — A son of Osama bin Laden said about 20 members of his family stranded in Iran are seeking sanctuary in a third country and that the U.S. may agree to accept them.

Omar bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader’s fourth son, said in an interview with Al Arabiya television that Iran is refusing to allow his relatives to go to Saudi Arabia. Shiite Muslim- dominated Iran is a regional rival of Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaeda, a Sunni group, is hostile to Iran.

“The Americans offered to help them out of Iran and even hinted at the possibility of receiving them in the U.S.,” he said in the interview, which was aired late yesterday and posted on the Dubai-based channel’s website. Omar bin Laden said none of his brothers has been accused of terrorism by the U.S. or any other country.

The elder bin Laden’s relatives held under house arrest in Iran include five of his children and one of his wives, Al Arabiya said. The family had been living in Afghanistan and fled to Iran after the U.S. military began air strikes on the country following the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001.

A daughter of bin Laden, Iman, 17, was allowed to leave Iran for Syria earlier this year after taking refuge in the Saudi Embassy in Tehran. Her brother, Bakr, 16, also left Iran for the Syrian capital of Damascus in December.

Yusuf Speaking

Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi, head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, has enormous clout in the Arab world. He is as close as one can be to an Islamic pope. In the West, he is often (falsely) portrayed as a “moderate”, some even try to sell him as some kind of “reformer”. In reality he is anything but, as we can see here:

Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradhawi Calls for Jihad of Self-Sacrifice and for Rejecting the Political Process

He called on Muslims to wage jihad of self-sacrifice, adding that those who are unable to do so should to take up other forms of jihad. He also criticized the Arab leaders for stubbornly clinging to the political process in general and to Arab peace initiatives specifically, which he claimed had achieved minimal results. Al-Qaradhawi praised Turkey for its contribution in the Gaza flotilla, and Mauritania for severing its ties with Israel.

“We Must Revive What… Hassan Al-Bana Called ‘the Death Industry'”

During a May 19-20, 2010 visit to Mauritania, Sheikh Al-Qaradhawi called upon Muslims to sacrifice themselves in order to achieve their rights: “We must revive what the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan Al-Bana, called ‘the death industry’ in his article from the 1940s. The ummah today is in need of self-sacrifice for the sake of [achieving] rights, and thus victory will be attained.” He added that pressure should be exerted to liberate Palestine and that “the inertia that has harmed everyone can change if the ummah finds the men who excel at dying for the sake of Allah.”

The Palestinians Wage Jihad With Both with Their Money and Their Blood, So We Must at Least Help with Money

In a Friday sermon on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary of the Nakba, Al-Qaradhawi called for jihad in order to return Palestine to the Palestinians: “The right of the Muslims to Palestine and [other lands] will be [realized] only by force. We can only realize our rights through resistance… We must stand beside our brothers, the mujahideen. I call [on the Muslims] to set forth on jihad, and on all the factions to fight the enemy together as one. There is no room for division and disagreement; we must work together, especially since the war [now] encompasses all levels – military, political, economic, cultural, and religious.” Al-Qaradhawi stressed that he himself was praying to Allah to “help him fight the Zionists and cause loss of life among them, and that he be hit by a bullet that will separate his head from his body.” He stressed that “the best death a Muslim can hope for is not death in bed, but as a shahid on the battlefield for the sake of Allah.” Read it all, from MEMRI

Al Qaeda Made in Australia

Update: Keysar knows nothing, remembers nothing, when its not “out of context”, as usual…. (video)

I still feel sorry for Allen Jones

The Islamic Friendship Association of Australia’s Keysar Trad says it’s possible organisers did not realise Anwar al-Awlaki was an Al Qaeda recruiter when they hired him to give a sermon at a Sydney mosque. He wasn’t at the mosque, you see, and there was nothing on the internet either, and he wasn’t told anything, knows nothing….. blah blah…..

al Qaeda preaches at our mosque

Andrew Bolt

Al Qaeda preaches in our biggest mosque:

AN AL-QAEDA recruiter, described as the No. 1 terrorist threat to America, was engaged by a Sydney youth group to address hundreds of young people – a decision that has caused deep divisions at one of Australia’s largest mosques.

At the same time as Anwar al-Awlaki was advising the extremist later charged with killing 13 people at Fort Hood in Texas, he was in talks with a group, Sydney Muslim Youth, about delivering a sermon to young Australians. He was already well known to security agencies as the spiritual guide to three of the hijackers on September 11, 2001…

The Herald attended the sermon at the Lakemba mosque in February last year but was ejected by organisers…

Shadi (pictured)

According to a director of the mosque, Ziad Ghamraoui, Shady Alsuleiman was in charge of organising evening youth events at the time of the sermon. Sheikh Shady refused to comment… IslamicMedia.com.au, an initiative of the Shady-affiliated United Muslims of Australia, streamed but did not record the speech and has 15 other audio sermons from the imam.

Ziad Ghamraoui (pic)

Shady is a contradiction of those bland assurances that the second generation will assimilate as the first did not:

Sheikh Shady Alsuleiman was born in Sydney – Australia from an Arab family who migrated to Australia in the late 60’s. He completed his School Certificate in Sydney before heading overseas on a seven year journey seeking Islamic knowledge in the Islamic world… He operates from Australia’s largest Masjid and Islamic centre (Masjid Ali Bin Abi Taleb, known as Lakemba Mosque).

And he’s formed an Islamic college in Sydney that now has five teachers. One is the Sydney-born Rameh Zoud, who was interviewed six years ago by the ABC in Yemen, where he was studying Islam at a school in a town in al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden’s ancestral homeland:

Debbie Schlussel: We blew it again…

The Real Scoop on Aafia Siddiqi: Her Circle of Boston Friends & How We Blew It

The next time I complain about the number of Muslim student visas we issue, think about Aafia Siddiqui, Bassan Kanj, and the Boston terror cell. They were guests in our country, and they planned our future demise at least a decade ahead.

Siddiqui’s conviction for shooting at U.S. soldiers after they caught her in Afghanistan (with chemicals, a dirty bomb recipe, plans to blow up U.S. gas stations and major New York sites) is really not the story here.  The story is Aafia Siddiqui’s part in the early stages of Al-Qaeda around the world, as it was formed by a close circle of friends, who were mostly Muslim students in Boston here on visas in the late 1980s and early to mid-’90s.  One of those students, one of those friends, was Aafia Siddiqui, who would later become Al-Qaeda’s designated master terrorist in the U.S., until she was caught in Afghanistan.  It’s the story of how America dropped the ball on the inchoate Al-Qaeda world leadership concentrated amongst a few Muslim visa holders concentrated in a major American city.  And it’s the story of how America let those people leave the country and did nothing to stop them, even the one they caught after 9/11 and willingly gave up to the Syrians.

Read it all here…

Aafia Siddiqui is guilty, guilty, guilty. Of course, the juice are to blame:

After the verdict was delivered, Siddiqui shouted to the court: “This is a verdict coming from Israel, not America.”  Guilty: Paki al Qaeda Agent Convicted — Jews Mostly to Blame /Jawa Report

More pic’s from the courtroom drama here….

That’s the real story behind Aafia Siddiqui that you didn’t hear, amidst the hubbub about her shrieks against Jewish jurors and judges, and the Israelis.  But I’m telling the Cliff’s Notes, er . . . “Debbie’s Notes” version of that frightening story here.

That’s the story you didn’t hear in the Siddiqui trial. And you may never hear about it again. Sadly.

thousands of protesters demand  the release of this terrorist scumbag, telling us this would “improve the image of the US…”

Pakistan Reacts To Pakistani Al Qaeda Agent Aafia Siddiqui Conviction

Jawa Report Via CSM

Karachi, PakistanThousands of political and social activists and students across Pakistan on Thursday protested the conviction of Aafia Siddiqui by a Manhattan jury for the attempted murder of US soldiers in Afghanistan.

Siddiqui, a US-educated neuroscientist and Pakistani citizen was found guilty Wednesday. For many Pakistanis, the verdict is another example of the US government’s high-handedness and is expected to fuel anti-American sentiment in a country where Washington’s foreign policy is already viewed with suspicion.

“The public’s reaction [to the conviction] can be read as a reaction to drone attacks, travel restrictions, and other discriminatory policies [against Pakistanis],” says Riffat Hussain, a political and defense analyst at Islamabad’s Quaid-e-Azam University.

Sharia a Threat to Western Society

Islamic law is simply incompatible with the principles that have built the sort of societies to which Muslims themselves want to immigrate.

How Taqiyya Alters Islam’s Rules of War

Dishonesty. Early Muslims practiced it. Muhammad encouraged it. Even Allah was said to be very good at it. Perhaps this is why today’s Muslims tell us that Islam is against terror, then turn around and engage in terror.

The renowned Muslim historian and philosopher Ibn Khaldun (d. 1406) clearly articulates this division:

“In the Muslim community, jihad is a religious duty because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and the obligation to convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force. The other religious groups did not have a universal mission, and the jihad was not a religious duty for them, save only for purposes of defense. But Islam is under obligation to gain power over other nations”- More>>>

From the WSJ:

The Wall Street Journal discovers the Muslim nature of the problem:

President Obama BO warns against “extremism.” Former Vice President Dick Cheney declaims against “terrorists.” But they hardly ever bark the essential word, the almost always absent critical adjective: Muslim. Almost all the terrorist and extremist violence in the world today is committed by Muslims—

Obama  said that the United States was “at war against al Qaeda.” Indeed, we are, and al Qaeda is surely the main Muslim terrorist organization we are fighting. But it is not the only one. Many of the Muslim terrorist groups around the world are their own bosses, particularly in Asia and also in the Middle East. Nonetheless, he still avoided the Muslim nature of the problem…..More WSJ:

“There isn’t a serious fight against Al-Qaeda in Yemen,” one analyst observes, but there is more to the story than economics. There has been a pattern of inaction and bumbling on the part of the Yemeni government concerning jihadists within the country, so much so that one official remarked: “Yemen is like a bus station — we stop some terrorists, and we send others on to fight elsewhere … We appease our partners in the West, but we are not really helping.”
