This is Islam
So, now, we know. The two men who perpetrated Monday’s Boston Marathon terrorist attack are Islamic terrorists from Chechnya (Russia) who emigrated from there to the United States. They were brothers. One, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is dead, and the other, Dzokhar (or Dzhokhar or Djohar) Tsarnaev, is a fugitive, so the entire Boston area is shut down, as he might be armed with a suicide vest. I note that every single major news broadcast only refers to these guys as “Chechnyan” or “Chechen” terrorists, NOT Islamic terrorists, which is what they are. Remember all those people locked in a Russian theater–including lots of women and children–who were blown up by Chechnyan Islamic terrorists? Same people. Oh, and they are tied to Al-Qaeda and its worldwide network of nationalist Islamic terrorist groups. Same old jihad. Remember, THIS. IS. ISLAM.
The two of them came here several years ago and Tamerlan had a “Green Card” a/k/a “Legal Permanant Residence,” which means he basically had the green light to get U.S. citizenship. So, do we really need Marco Boob-io’s and his Senate Gangbang of Eight’s immigration amnesty bill so that more like the Tsarnaev Bros get “a pathway to citizenship”? Only if you’re a moron and want to see the end of America. These are the “DREAM Act” kids we’re told are “American like us in ever way except on paper,” to use Barack Obama’s words. Tsarnaev was raised here in American culture, coming here at age seven. And look how much he loved America.
He murdered and maimed hundreds of Americans, after apparently receiving some sort of paramilitary training along with his brother.
He learned this hate from his parents . . . just as hundreds of thousands of Muslim kids around America learn this hatred of this country from their parents, despite being given every opportunity, every freedom here. His online profile says his “worldview” is “Islam.” And we saw that worldview on display in practice, this week. click to read the full story on Debbie Schlussel
Obama is currently funding the Syrian rebels
After the carnage unfolded at the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, a potential gun running scheme to arm Libyan and perhaps even Syrian rebels was uncovered. The troubling aspect of arming said rebels is the fact that, according to some intelligence experts, those rebels are actually al-Qaeda.
Now, al-Qaeda in Iraq has acknowledged for the first time on Tuesday that al-Nusra Front, the rebel faction fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria, is indeed part of its network.
What’s more, the militant jihadist group said it is fighting to establish an Islamic state in the country.
The remarks, made by Iraqi al-Qaeda leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and published in Al Aribya have finally confirmed longheld suspicions that the two groups are one in the same.
“It’s now time to declare in front of the people of the Levant and [the] world that the al-Nusra Front is but an extension of the Islamic State in Iraq and part of it,” the SITE Monitoring Service quoted Baghdadi as saying in a speech released on jihadist forums Monday.
The two groups will now reportedly merge and be called the “Islamic State in Iraq” and the “Levant.”
The Syrian rebels aren’t the only ones who could receive support from al Qaeda. Baghdadi said that al Qaeda would furnish support to other jihadists “on the condition that the country and its citizens be governed according to the rules dictated by Allah.”
Al-Nusra Front was labeled a “terrorist” group by Washington back in December over its suspected affiliation to al-Qaeda in Iraq. Back then, U.S. State Department dubbed al-Nursa as simply a “new alias” for al-Qaeda in Iraq, saying it was “an attempt by AQI to hijack the struggles of the Syrian people for its own malign purposes.”
Al Aribya also notes that jihadist forums online reveal that hundreds of radicals have traversed from Iraq into Syria to lead the charge against Assad’s regime. source – The Blaze
Think about it. Osama Bin Laden is the most wanted criminal in our lifetime, hands down, no one else even close. The mastermind behind 9/11. The newspapers tells us that Barack Hussein Obama “gave the order” to have Osama Bin Laden killed, they showed us photos of Obama and his people “watching it in real time”. But when it was done there is no evidence that it actually happened.
There are no witnesses, no dead body, no photos, no audio recordings, there is nothing to prove it actually happened. Even the emails mentioned in the story below bear no trace of the name of Osama Bin Laden, so any idea that they reference Bin Laden personally must be implied and inferred. Even the members of SEAL Team 6 who were talked about as being part of the Bin Laden raid, where are they? Oh, that’s right, their chopper crashed shortly after the raid took place. How very convenient for the Obama administration.
So I ask you, dear reader, on what basis do you believe actually it happened?
From Telegraph UK: The emails were released by the Pentagon after a freedom of information request by the Associated Press, but were heavily redacted. They disclosed that the funeral was so secret that none of the crew on USS Carl Vinson witnessed the burial at sea. They confirmed what the administration said at the time that Islamic rituals were observed.
In an indication of the intense secrecy surrounding the operation, senior naval officers referred to the slain terror leaders’s body was referred to as a FedEx package.
The correspondence represents the first public disclosure of government records about the former al Qaeda leader’s burial. They were released on Wednesday by the Pentagon in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Associated Press.
One email stamped secret and sent on May 2 by a senior Navy officer briefly describes how bin Laden’s body was washed, wrapped in a white sheet, and then placed in a weighted bag. According to another message from the Vinson’s public affairs officer, only a small group of the ship’s leadership was informed of the burial.
Bin Laden was killed on May 1, 2011, by a Navy SEAL team that assaulted his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. His body was carried out to sea by the USS Carl Vinson.
“Traditional procedures for Islamic burial was followed,” the May 2 email from Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette reads. “The deceased’s body was washed (ablution) then placed in a white sheet. The body was placed in a weighted bag.
“A military officer read prepared religious remarks, which were translated into Arabic by a native speaker. After the words were complete, the body was placed on a prepared flat board, tipped up, whereupon the deceased’s body slid into the sea.”
The email also included a cryptic reference to the intense secrecy surrounding the mission. “The paucity of documentary evidence in our possession is a reflection of the emphasis placed on operational security during the execution of this phase of the operation,” Admiral Gaouette’s message reads.
Recipients of the email included Admiral Mike Mullen, then the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and General James Mattis, the top officer at US Central Command. Admiral Mullen retired from the military in September 2011.
Earlier, Admiral Gaouette, then the deputy commander of the Navy’s Fifth Fleet, and another officer used code words to discuss whether the helicopters carrying the SEALs and bin Laden’s body had arrived on the Vinson.
“Any news on the package for us?” he asked Rear Admiral Samuel Perez, commander of the carrier strike group that included the Vinson.
“FedEx delivered the package,” Admiral Perez responded. “Both trucks are safely en route home base.”
Although the Obama administration has pledged to be the most transparent in American history, it is keeping a tight hold on materials related to the bin Laden raid.
In a response to separate requests from the AP for information about the mission, the Defence Department said in March that it could not locate any photographs or video taken during the raid or showing bin Laden’s body.
It also said it could not find any images of bin Laden’s body on the Vinson.
The Pentagon also said it could not find any death certificate, autopsy report or results of DNA identification tests for bin Laden, or any pre-raid materials discussing how the government planned to dispose of bin Laden’s body if he were killed.
The Defence Department also refused to confirm or deny the existence of helicopter maintenance logs and reports about the performance of military gear used in the raid.
One of the stealth helicopters that carried the SEALs to Abbottabad crashed during the mission and its wreckage was left behind. People who lived near bin Laden’s compound took photos of the disabled chopper.
The AP is appealing the Defence Department’s decision. The CIA, which ran the bin Laden raid and has special legal authority to keep information from ever being made public, has not responded to AP’s request for records about the mission. source – Telegraph UK
Obama’s support of Hamas ensures their success
RELATED SITE: Debbie Schlussel.com
While Israel is forced, today, to defend its innocent civilians against hundreds of rockets in the non-stop war perpetrated by HAMAS, another HAMAS war is being won in America with the help of Barack Obama.
On November 5th, the day before Election Day, Obama quietly removed HAMAS terrorist and Chicago resident Muhammad Salah from the Treasury Department Terrorist List. Salah was the conduit for Al-Qaeda financing of HAMAS. Salah sued the Department of Treasury in September, and when the answer to the lawsuit was due, the Obama administration chose to remove Salah from the terrorist list, rather than fight for what’s right. You cannot say much better for the Bush administration, which protected Salah every step of the way.
Federal agents and the lawyer for the Boim family, whose son was murdered by HAMAS, didn’t know this was being done. And they are all outraged that this Islamic terrorist–who shouldn’t be walking free on American streets–is not only free, but now is no longer designated as an Islamic terrorist, which means he’s free to go about his business. Muslims are gloating.
Salah was convicted of funding HAMAS in Israel in 1993, after Israeli authorities found…to read the rest of this story, please visit Debbie Schlussel.com
Cowardly Obama does nothing
It has been a month since the Muslim terror attack against the US Embassy in Libya on the anniversary of 9/11 happened. And what has Obama done about it? Nothing, absolutely not a thing except crank up his teleprompter and talk.

From Reuters – Masked gunmen shot dead a Yemeni security chief on his way to work at the U.S. embassy in Sanaa on Thursday, in an attack a Yemeni security source said appeared to be the work of al Qaeda.
The incident was the latest of a wave of attacks on officials in the impoverished Arab state, which is battling Islamist militants with Washington’s help. The attackers, on a motorcycle, opened fire on Qassem Aqlan – who headed an embassy security investigation team – near his house in the centre of Yemen’s capital, the source told Reuters.
“This operation has the fingerprints of al Qaeda which carried out similar operations before,” said the source, who asked not to be named.
Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and other militant groups strengthened their grip on parts of the country during an uprising that ousted veteran President Ali Abdullah Saleh in February.
Washington, wary of the growing power of al Qaeda, has stepped up drone strikes on suspected militants, with the backing of Saleh’s successor, President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
Fahad, a neighbor of Aqlan’s, said he had noticed strangers roaming the streets over the past three days, suggesting Aqlan was being watched before the attack.
“Once he (Aqlan) stepped out of his house the men shouted his name and when he replied, they shot him in the head and neck,” he said.
Aqlan, who was in his fifties and had worked at the embassy for more than a decade, was responsible for coordinating security information between the U.S. embassy and the Yemeni authorities, the source added. source – Reuters
He had been involved in the investigation into the attack last month on the U.S. embassy by protesters angry over an anti-Islam film made in the United States.
“We are aware of the reports of this tragic incident and our embassy in Sanaa is working with the Yemeni authorities,” Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council, said in Washington.
A senior State Department official said: “We are deeply saddened by this tragic incident involving a Yemeni employee of our embassy.”
There have been a number of killings and assassination attempts on security officials and politicians since Yemen’s army drove Islamist fighters out of several southern towns earlier this year.
Last month Abdulilah Al-Ashwal, a senior intelligence official, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Sanaa.
Restoring stability in Yemen has become an international priority due to fears that al Qaeda could become further entrenched in a country which flanks oil producer Saudi Arabia and lies along major international shipping lanes.
AQAP, regarded as al Qaeda’s strongest regional wing, has mounted operations in Saudi Arabia and tried to launch attacks against the United States.
BAGHDAD (AP) — Al-Qaeda is rebuilding in Iraq and has set up training camps for insurgents in the nation’s western deserts as the extremist group seizes on regional instability and government security failures to regain strength, officials say.
Iraq has seen a jump in al-Qaeda attacks over the last 10 weeks, and officials believe most of the fighters are former prisoners who have either escaped from jail or were released by Iraqi authorities for lack of evidence after the U.S. military withdrawal last December.
Many are said to be Saudi or from Sunni-dominated Gulf states.
During the war and its aftermath, U.S. forces, joined by allied Sunni groups and later by Iraqi counterterror forces, managed to beat back al-Qaeda’s Iraqi branch.
“AQI is coming back,” U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, declared in an interview last month while visiting Baghdad.
But now, Iraqi and U.S. officials say, the insurgent group has more than doubled in numbers from a year ago — from about 1,000 to 2,500 fighters. And it is carrying out an average of 140 attacks each week across Iraq, up from 75 attacks each week earlier this year, according to Pentagon data. source – Yahoo News
During a recent keynote address at the Better Government Association annual luncheon last Tuesday, Logan delivered what the Chicago Sun Times called “a provocative speech” to some 1,100 movers in government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas.
She explained that the Taliban, al Qaeda and its proxies haven’t gone away and are in fact re-energized and coming back in force. Logan also informed the crowd that a “lie” is being propagated by the American government.
“I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated…” Logan announced. The lie is that the U.S. military has tamed the Taliban.
“There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan began. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,“ who claim ”they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban.”
“It’s such nonsense!”
The Sun Times continues:
Logan stepped way out of the “objective,” journalistic role. The audience was riveted as she told of plowing through reams of documents, and interviewing John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan; Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and a Taliban commander trained by al-Qaida. The Taliban and al-Qaida are teaming up and recruiting new terrorists to do us deadly harm, she reports. [...] She made a passionate case that our government is downplaying the strength of our enemies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as a rationale of getting us out of the longest war.
Logan went on to say that people have been duped into believing that the threat of radical Islam is merely a thing of the past, saying:
“You’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight. In your arrogance, you think you write the script.”
The CBS foreign correspondent, who broke with her traditional journalist’s role and actually shared her personal opinion with the group, also called for retribution for the slaying of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, two Navy SEALs and one additional U.S. civil servant in Libya.
According to the Sun Times, Logan hopes America will “exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil. That its ambassadors will not be murdered, and that the United States will not stand by and do nothing about it.”
While the Sun Times article appeared to question Logan for delving into opinion and “being” the story rather than “reporting” the story, it is difficult to imagine that someone who experienced atrocities in the Middle East first hand and was in fact physically assaulted could refrain from speaking from personal experience. After all, who better than one who lived it is qualified to judge?
