Radical Islamist missionaries are destroying religious freedom
By Leah Rosenberg -  December 17, 2018 3376 0
 
What are the essential dangers of radical islamist ideology in this world?  Should there be any limits on what is said or preached in public?  Absolutely.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali - What is Radical Dawa?
 
 
Radical Islamist ideology spreads – quickly.  How does it spread?  Ayaan Hirsi Ali claims that Dawa is much more than an introduction to Muslim ideology.  She claims that it is a movement that is all about supremacist ideology, and against religious freedom and women’s rights.  In a nutshell, it stands diametrically opposed to almost all Western values.   She believes that there are multiple groups that are all involved in trying to make fundamental changes in the social structures of the Western countries they live in.
 
Should we be tolerant to anti-tolerant ideologies?
This is of course a tricky question.  The Clarion Project has taken a strong stance on this.  They believe that this movement is endangering the Western world as we know it.  I think this is true – but we need to be careful.  Free speech is indeed a central value that must be safeguarded.  The problem is when free speech leads to hate speech.  Or, as in this case, when free speech leads to promoting ideologies that do not support free speech.
A Recipe for Safe Free Speech
This is not a simple matter.  Therefore, in my opinion, the key is not to silence these ideologies as much as it is important to expose them.  We need to make it clear to the masses that there are threats out there that must be dealt with.  That there are ideologies that threaten the very ground that we are on.  In that way, we won’t have to be as worried about the negative impact of dangerous ideologies.  People will simply reject them.

Terrorist Zakir Musa’s top aide killed along with five other militants
December 22, 2018 by Jerry McCormick

Security forces in India’s Pulwama district have dealt a massive blow to one of the most feared terrorists in the world.
Along with five other militants, the deputy chief of Zakir Musa, Soliha, was reportedly killed during an attack.
Crippling Blow
Zakir Musa is one of the most wanted terrorists in the world today.
 
He is a former Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist.
 
Musa also is believed to have links to Jaish-e-Mohammed.
 
He predominantly operated in the Kashmir Valley.
 
Local security forces were put on alert earlier this year when Musa was spotted near Amritsar.
 
Soliha is believed to have been the architect behind many of Musa’s attacks, so authorities believe this will severely hamper his efforts moving forward.
The Operation
A cordon and search operation had been launched in the South Kashmir District.
 
The operation got the go-ahead after local intelligence reported the presence of terrorist forces.
 
As authorities were conducting their search, the terrorist group reportedly opened up fire on them.
 
During the exchange, a total of six terrorists were killed, including Soliha.
 
In addition to taking out the six terrorists, a massive cache was found.
 
A spokesman for the Defense Ministry stated, “Weapons and war-like stores have been recovered.”
 
Do You Believe We Can Defeat ISIS?
Yes
No
Next
So, not only has Musa lost his right hand, but also a significant amount of his supplies to carry out the terrorist attacks.
 
This is a massive win against the war on terror.

A man has hijacked a bus and drove it into a crowd of people in China’s city of Longyan, killing five people and injuring 21 others. The attacker is believed to have entered the bus armed with a knife and caused panic.
The incident happened in the coastal southeastern Fujian province. The assailant was reportedly detained by police. He apparently attacked passengers with a knife and, when people started fleeing, sat behind the wheel and drove into a crowd. One of those killed is thought to be a police officer.
 
Online footage, purporting to be from the scene, shows a road littered with parts from damaged vehicles and a group of police officers and bystanders pouncing on the alleged hijacker.
 
Other clips show people lying on the ground, apparently hurt in the incident (WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES).

The Bergdahl-Sony Effect
The West will have to contend with two lessons it taught adversaries in 2014: The U.S. negotiates with terrorists and the U.S. government and private sector will cave to threats.
 
The U.S. negotiated a prisoner release with the Taliban where five high-level Taliban terrorists were released in exchange for a kidnapped U.S. soldier named Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl who deserted and may have even tried to join the enemy side. Taliban chief Mullah Omar hailed the deal as a “huge accomplishment” that “reassures us that our aspirations are on the verge of fulfillment.”
 
Watch Clarion's Ryan Mauro speak on "Top Terror Threats of 2015"
 
Hollywood reinforced the dangerous appeasement when movie theaters caved to threats from hackers linked to North Korea and refused to show The Interview, a comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. Sony then cancelled the film’s release.
 
In addition, showings of Team America, another comedy that pokes fun at North Korea, were shut down. A planned thriller film with a storyline related to North Korea was cancelled, even though the hackers never threatened a response to it or even mentioned it.
 
After public outrage reached a fever pitch and President Obama said Sony made a mistake, the decision was reversed. The Interview was released in limited theaters and online on Christmas as planned, but the damage was done.
 
In 2015, the West’s enemies will be implementing these lessons.
 
Iran Outmaneuvers America
 
The International Atomic Energy Agency confirms that Iran is still not fully disclosing its nuclear program, yet the negotiations and sanctions relief has been extended for another six months. The U.S. even admits privately that Iran is breaking the interim nuclear deal, while the Secretary of State publicly praises Iran’s so-called “compliance.”
 
The Iranian regime is using negotiations as part of a long-term strategy to develop nuclear weapons capabilities, with the most incriminating work probably being outsourced to North Korea. A senior adviser to Supreme Leader Khamenei even said the regime’s strategy is “elongation” and it doesn’t actually want a finalized deal.
 
In 2015, Iran will continue this strategy to advance its nuclear program and lead the West into missing an extremely important opportunity to pressure the regime financially. At the same time, Iran will win investments from European companies to assist the economy and shield Iran from effective sanctions in the future.
 
Iran will continue to sponsor terrorism, including Al-Qaeda and the Taliban and try to heal rifts with Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood.
 
Oil Crisis
 
The decline of oil prices is boosting the American economy and technological advances will reduce U.S. energy dependence. These oil prices are very dangerous for Iran, the Syrian regime, Venezuela, Russia and other hostile regimes.
 
These governments need the price of oil to spike up to sustain their budgets. The Iranian regime is undoubtedly infuriated with the Saudis for refusing to decrease oil production and has threatened an oil price war previously.
 
Iran’s proxies have successfully captured the capital of Yemen, defeating Saudi Arabia's allies. In 2012, Iran launched a major cyber attack on Saudi Aramco and a natural gas company in Qatar. The Saudisclaim the hackers tried to halt oil and natural gas production. The Iranian hackers continue to attack U.S. businesses, energy firms, defense contractors and universities.
 
In 2015, the low price of oil will maximize the incentives for Iran and other hostile governments to instigate conflict or to even attack Middle Eastern and American energy infrastructure.

The Expansion of Terror Safe Havens
 
Next year, Islamist terrorists will have growing opportunities to regain the safe havens they lost since 2001 and to expand their current bases.
 
The Islamic State announced in November that it had expanded from Iraq and Syria into Libya, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen and Saudi Arabia. It killed eight Shiites in Saudi Arabia and shot a citizen of Denmark in Riyadh. At least 60 jihadist groups in 30 countries have expressed solidarity with the Islamic State.
 
Syria is the brightest prospect for the jihadists.
 
The Iran-backed Assad regime is winning on the battlefield but has severe weaknesses that will only get worse next year like the regime’s bankruptcy, collapsing infrastructure and lack of manpower. The regime cut subsidies that are essential for maintaining support from its constituencies.
 
The low oil price will drastically undermine support from Iran and Russia, as well. A Syrian trade official recently admitted that the regime would have fallen without Iranian financial aid.
 
The U.S.-backed rebels have been ripped to shreds by the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria. The country is being described as “a patchwork of warring fiefdoms” and “total chaos” is being predicted for 2015. The chances are high that the civil war will spread to Lebanon in a major way.
 
The often-overlooked civil war continues to rage in Libya where Islamist militias are making gains in eastern Libya against secular forces. The Islamic State conquered the city of Derna and has erected training camps with an estimated 200 terrorists.
 
The Libyan civil war could spread into neighboring Tunisia and Algeria. The Libyan secularists are scoring some victories in western Libya and Tunisia is sealing border crossings. The new anti-Islamist government of Tunisia is destined for a showdown with Islamist militias like Ansar al-Sharia.
 
Yemen is also a grand opportunity for jihadists. The Iranian-backed Houthis have captured the capital of Sanaa and is advancing in the central and southern parts of the country, battling Al-Qaeda and other Sunni fighters along the way. This could become a repeat of Syria very shortly.
 
In Egypt, the military is battling an Islamist insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula. The Islamic State is expanding there and Al-Qaeda’s affiliate there could potentially bounce back from major losses. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas could join the fight as the Egyptian government tries to dismantle political Islam.
 
In Afghanistan, the U.S. has pledged to end the official combat mission at the end of this year and reduce U.S. troop levels down to 9,800. The remaining forces will leave by 2016. The Afghan Taliban is making gains in Helmand Province since the U.S. handed security over to the Afghan security forces, but the Afghan forces deserve credit for stopping the Taliban from seizing a single district there.
 
A secret group of dozens of students backing the Islamic State has arisen in Afghanistan and expressions of support for the Islamic State are being seen in neighboring Pakistan. The Islamic State could also win over hardline elements of the Afghan Taliban opposed to negotiated settlements with the elected government.
 
The Clarion Project has seen numerous online statements by Islamic State members and supporters enthusiastically talking about replicating in Afghanistan the success they have enjoyed in Iraq once U.S. forces depart Afghanistan.
 
Islamist terrorists could also become stronger in Central Asia due to jihadists returning from Syria, the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and an apparent rise in support for Islamism, as evidenced by the rise of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Kyrgyzstan has thwarted attacks by terrorists who returned from Syria and sought to spark an insurgency there.
 
In December, a terrorist group called the Caucasus Emirate attacked the city of Grozny in Chechnya and killed 14 police officers. The Emirate’s Dagestan section then released a videotape declaring allegiance to the Islamic State, even though the emir of the overall group endorsed Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Homegrown Terror
 
The unfortunate reality is that a homegrown terrorist attack on U.S. soil is all but certain in 2015.
 
There were at least six Islamism-inspired acts of terrorism on U.S. soil in 2014, with the murder of two New York Police Department officers being the latest. At least 14 Americans have been intercepted on their way to join the Islamic State, with the most recent cases being a mother in Virginia and a Chicago man with his two teenage siblings.
 
It is believed that over 100 Americans have joined jihadist groups in Syria with other estimates as high as 300. The FBI is monitoring about 150 Americans who have returned from Syria for possible terrorist links.
 
The Islamic State has inspired a new generation of homegrown terrorists and a study found that the number of Salafist jihadists has doubled since 2010. The number of individual Salafist jihadist groups has doubled since 2001 and the number of attacks has tripled since 2010. The State Department likewise calculated a 40% rise in attacks in 2013 and a 60% rise in fatalities from terrorism.
 
Based on these trends, it is safe to say that Islamist terrorism will dominate the headlines throughout 2015 as it did for most of 2014.

Ethiopia: Muslim mobs screaming “Allahu akbar” attack 10 church buildings
Imagine the outcry that would ensue of enraged Christian mobs screaming “Jesus is Lord” attacked ten mosques. But of course, that kind of thing never happens, and shouldn’t. If it did, the outcry would be immediate, intense, and sustained. But the international media will take little or no notice of this. “Muslim Mobs Attack 10 […]

Georgia woman arrested for conspiracy to provide material aid to ISIS

Georgia woman arrested for conspiracy to provide material aid to ISIS
Image Source: Screenshot
A potential terrorist threat within U.S. borders has been neutralized.
 
Law enforcement arrested 20-year-old Kim Anh Vo on Tuesday for her alleged involvement in an internet group that pledged support and aid to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, better known as ISIS.
Vo, who lives in Georgia, has gone by various names online, including F@ng, SyxxZMC, Zozo, Miss.Bones, Sage Pi, and Kitty Lee.
 
Georgia woman involved in terror scheme
In the newly released criminal complaint, prosecutors allege that Vo joined United Cyber Caliphate (UCC) in April 2016. UCC is an online group that not only pledged allegiance to ISIS, but also sought to carry out cyberattacks against Americans.
 
The group and its affiliates reportedly spread ISIS propaganda on the internet and published “kill lists,” names of individuals that the UCC wanted their followers to kill, including members of the U.S. Armed Forces and the State Department.
 
Prosecutors say that Vo helped to recruit members during two separate periods: in April and May 2016 and in January and February 2017. On the latter trip, Vo reportedly recruited a minor from Norway.
 
The group then created a video threatening a nonprofit organization in New York City, which reportedly contained the message: “You messed with the Islamic State, SO EXPECT US SOON.”
 
This was “followed by a scene displaying a photograph of the organization’s chief executive officer and former U.S. Ambassador (CEO), along with the words: ‘[CEO], we will get you,'” according to the criminal complaint.

Later, on April 2, 2017, the group allegedly posted a “kill list” containing the names and personal information of more than 8,000 people. The list was accompanied by another video, which included a scene of a man being decapitated alongside a message that read as follows:
 
We have a message to the people of the U.S., and most importantly, your president Trump:  Know that we continue to wage war against you, know that your counter attacks only makes stronger. The UCC will start a new step in this war against you…and We will release a list with over 8000 names, addresses, and email addresses, of those who fight against the US.  Or live amongst the kuffar.  Kill them wherever you find them!
 
20-year-old faces decades in prison
Vo was arrested on Tuesday morning by authorities from the FBI New York Field Office, New York Joint Terrorism Task Force, and Atlanta Field Office’s Augusta Resident Agency.
 
 
 
Later in the day, she appeared in federal court in Augusta, GA, before Judge Brian K. Epps. The prosecution, which is being handled by the Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit, has charged Vo with conspiring to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization — namely, ISIS.
 
If found guilty, Vo could face up to 20 years in federal prison.

New Zealand terror attack: Death toll in mosque shootings rises to 49 - police 
© AFP / TV New Zealand / Laurent FIEVET
Police Commissioner Mike Bush has confirmed that the death toll in the Christchurch mosque attacks has risen to 49 people. A male in his 20s has been charged with murder and will appear in court tomorrow.
 
 
Bush confirmed that a further 20 people were injured in what is now the worst ever mass shooting in New Zealand history. Some 40 people were taken to hospital but it was not targeted in the attack, contrary to rumors online.
 
"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack," New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said. In the aftermath of the attacks, New Zealand has been placed on its highest security threat level according to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

One of the four has already been charged with murder and will appear in court tomorrow but Police Commissioner Bush declined to confirm the name of the suspect prior to the court hearing. The extent of the other three suspects’ involvement has yet to be determined.
 
When asked if police were looking for any other persons of interest related to the case, Bush responded that “we never assume that there aren't other people involved” but that “at this point we are not looking for any other persons.”

He also confirmed that, while there were two Improvised Explosive Devices found on one of the perpetrator’s vehicles (one of which was deactivated, the other is still being worked on by the New Zealand Defence Forces), no bomb belts or other explosive devices were found on the body of one of the suspects as had been speculated as the situation unfolded.
 
Bush declined to speculate on the motives of the attacker and would not confirm whether clear threats had been made on Facebook prior to the attack and that police had prior warning.
 
The Bangladesh National Cricket team was due to visit one of the mosques but managed to escape the violence.
