Daily Mail UK: Malik Obama, the president’s Kenyan half brother, was photographed in 2010 at a public event in Yemen wearing a ‘keffiyeh’ – a special scarf – bearing two anti-Israel slogans of the terror group Hamas, it emerged today.
‘Jerusalem is ours – WE ARE COMING,’ reads one saying. ‘From the river to the sea,’ says the other statement. That rallying cry refers to Palestinian militants’ belief that the territory representing Israel, with the Jordan River to the east and the Mediterranean Sea to the west, rightfully belongs to them – and Israel should not exist.
The photo appears on the website of the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a group that Malik founded and manages, despite its lack of a connection with he U.S. president. The name in the organization’s title refers to the president’s father, the parent whom the two men share in common.
Malik Obama also serves as the executive secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization, a group created by the government of Sudan. While the White House has sought to distance President Obama from Malik and his other relations, the Kenyan told GQ in July 2013 that the two speak regularly.
‘Of course we’re close!’ he said. ‘I’m the one who brought him here to Kogelo in 1988! I thought it was important for him to come home and see from whence his family came – you know, his roots.’
Malik told Mail Online in March 2013 that his more famous half-brother is ‘always at the end of a phone line if I want to talk. I last saw him on November 19 last year, shortly after the U.S. election. I went to the White House and offered him my congratulations’.
The Barack H. Obama foundation made news in 2013 after the IRS was accused of delaying the tax-exemption applications of tea party groups and other conservative organizations because of their political beliefs in 2010 and 2011.
But the Barack H. Obama Foundation saw its application approved in just 28 days. The final determination letter was signed by Lois Lerner, the former official forced to resign over the tea party scandal.
Malik is a practicing Muslim, but his embrace of militant Islam, including Hamas – a U.S.-designated terrorist organization – is curious because he has expressed a desire to run for president in Kenya, a predominantly Christian nation. source – Daily Mail UK
The last thing that Hamas and the Palestinians want is peace with Israel. They hate Israel with a passion that was born when Ishmael was a child. They glory in death, destruction and the shedding of Jewish blood.
Times of Israel – The Hamas government in Gaza celebrated the graduation on Monday of paramilitary camps geared at training high-school children “to follow in the footsteps of the suicide martyrs.
The camps, titled “the pioneers of liberation,” are run by Hamas’s ministries of education and interior. Some 13,000 students in grades 10-12 participated in the one-week training camps this year, compared to 5,000 last year when the program was launched, Israeli sources with knowledge of the program said.
The corps of instructors consists mainly of active members of Hamas’s security forces, and the curriculum includes weapons training, first aid, self defense, marching exercises and “security awareness” classes on identifying Israeli spies.
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, Interior Minister Fathi Hammad and Education Minister Usama Mzeini attended the graduation ceremony on Monday, each delivering fiery speeches stressing the importance of military training in developing a new generation of Palestinian combatants.
“Beware this generation,” Haniyeh said, addressing Israel. “This is a generation which knows no fear. It is the generation of the missile, the tunnel and the suicide operations.”
The Hamas prime minister added that female trainers are also on staff “to oversee the training of the young women to follow in the footsteps of the female suicide operatives.”
Hammad, the interior minister, said the training was in preparation for the coming war with Israel.
“This generation is a sapling from God on earth. It will harvest the enemies of God and be the pride of all nations,” he said.
Hamdi Shaqura, deputy director of program affairs at the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, a Gaza-based watchdog, said that his organization issued no statement on the training.
“To the best of my knowledge no other organization in Gaza issued a statement either,” he told The Times of Israel.
Omar Dawabha, an eleventh-grader who took part in the training, was quoted on the website of Hamas’s interior ministry saying that “he learned how to safeguard our rights and principles.” Another student, Mohammed Abu Nar, addressed the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem at the graduation ceremony.
“We are the pioneers of liberation, we are coming to purify you from the Zionists,” he said. source – TOI
NTEB RADIO PRESENTS: ERICK STAKELBECK
Join us Sunday night, July 21st, as NTEB Radio presents a live, exclusive interview with best-selling author and Islamic terrorism expert Erick Stakelbeck. Click here to participate in a live chat room and have the opportunity to call in as Erick answers your questions on Islamic terrorism. Show begins at 9:00 PM EST.
The Muslim Brotherhood, or Ikhwan, has engaged in terrorism, assassinations, and anti-Western, anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence for almost a century—yet few Americans realize how powerful they really are. While we focus on al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, it’s actually the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s oldest, most influential, and most anti-American Islamist group, that has become the preeminent voice and power in the Muslim world.
Hiding behind a cloak of respectability and expensive Western suits, the Muslim Brotherhood is installing vehemently anti-American governments and power structures throughout the Middle East and the world, as we sit back and cheer for the “democracy” of the Arab Spring.
In his new book, The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy, Erick Stakelbeck teaches us the frightening truth about this dangerous group, from his first-hand experiences investigating the Brotherhood for eleven years, interviewing its members and visiting its mosques and enclaves.
In The Brotherhood, Stakelbeck:
- Reveals how the Obama administration has put the Brotherhood on the threshold of power at every turn
- Examines the alarming ramifications for America, Europe and Israel of the Brotherhood’s rapid rise
- Warns against the West’s—particularly the Left’s—shortsighted, naïve and deadly embrace of the Ikhwan and
- Traces the group from its violent roots to its current strategy of “stealth jihad”
With Middle Eastern unrest only growing hotter, and saber-rattling at the West only growing louder, the Muslim Brotherhood’s growing global clout will remain on the front burner of American national security challenges. Revealing and disconcerting, The Brotherhood is a must-read for every American hoping to remain in a free America.

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Hamas is warning that if President Obama visits the Temple Mount it would be a “declaration of war” against the Islamic world. Israel National News reports the terror group made the threat during a protest march at the religious site following riots on Friday.
Mushir al-Masri, a Hamas spokesman, called for a third intifada if Obama visits the contested religious site in Jerusalem’s Old City between Israelis and Muslims.
Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich believes the warning will lead to violence flaring up in the region ahead of the president’s visit.
“The Palestinians have not said the final word yet and we expect that there will be attempts to take advantage of the upcomingevents, like the visit by Barack Obama, in order to continue the violence,” Aharonovich told Israel National News.
White House officials have said Obama doesn’t plan on visiting the Temple Mount during his trip.
Both Israelis and Muslims have claimed sovereignty over the Temple Mount since Israel liberated the site during the 1967 Six-Day War. Israel left the Waqf in charge of the compound.
Obama met with about 10 leaders of Arab American groups on Monday, encouraging the president to deliver a message of hope to the Palestinian people.
“[T]here are opportunities for him to say things that get into the public discourse about America’s commitment to them, about America’s understanding of their situation,” Jim Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, told The Associated Press.
Following the meeting, the White House said Obama told the group that his trip was not meant to resolve a specific policy issue, but that it was an opportunity for Obama to demonstrate U.S. commitment to the Palestinian people. source – CBS Washington
The sweet smell of…terrorism?
A new perfume created in Gaza will bear the name of a missile designed by Hamas and fired in the direction of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv during Operation Pillar of Defense in November, a local newspaper reported on Thursday.
Shadi Adwan, the owner of a local cosmetics company, decided to name a new scent M-75, to “honor the victory of the Palestinian people and the resistance during the eight-day war,” he told Islamist daily Al-Resalah.
The M-75 missile is manufactured in Gaza by Hamas’s Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, and Hamas claims it possesses a range of 75 kilometers (46 miles).
“The fragrance is pleasant and attractive, like the missiles of the Palestinian resistance, and especially the M-75,” Adwan said, adding that his company wished “to remind citizens of the victory wherever they may be, even in China.”
According to the report, the perfume comes in masculine and feminine scents and costs double the price of other perfumes due to special ingredients it contains, “worthy of the victory in the Gaza Strip.” source – Times of Israel
In politics there are no accidents or coincidences
If you think that the recent power grab of Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi is happening in a vacuum or by mere happenstance, you are greatly fooling yourself. The move by Morsi to make himself Egypt’s new Pharaoh is exactly what the plan has been all along since Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood started the Arab Spring.
Haven’t you wondered why Obama, so vocal during the Gaza-Israeli conflict, is now as quiet as a Mosque Mouse? Not one word has he spoken against Morsi’s coup. And he won’t until he is sure how it will all wind up.
We ask you to consider the following:
- Back in the very beginning of the Ara Spring, Obama sided with the Muslim Brotherhood.
- Obama put the muscle in place to assasinate Muammar Gaddhafi.
- Obama did nothing to stop the Arab Spring as it spread across the Middle East.
- Obama aided the Brotherhood in Yemen with airstirkes.
- Obama convinces G8 to give Muslim Brotherhood $8 billion for Arab Spring.
- The liberal media aided Obama by whole-heartedly embracing the Arab Spring.
- After taking over Egypt, Obama then publicly declared the US-Muslim Brotherhood partnership.
The aboved-cited articles are barely even the tip of the iceberg showing Obama’s blood-stained hands in his partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood. Do a category search on our site and see all the evidence, it’s quite overwhelming.
From the very beginning, NTEB has shown you the ever-evolving partnership between Obama and the US with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. All this was done for one reason and one reason only, and that answer is found here in the Holy Scriptures:
The Coming Psalm 83 War Against Israel
“They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.” Psalm 83: 2-8
Lets take a look at who the Muslim nations are that are referenced in Psalm 83:
- The Tabernacles of Edom: South Jordan and Palestine.
- The Ishmaelites: Saudi Arabia
- Moab: Palestinians and Central Jordan
- Hagarenes: Egyptians
- Gebal: Hezbollah and North Lebanon
- Ammon: Palestinians and North Jordan
- Amalek: Sinai
- The Philistines: Hamas of Gaza
- Inhabitants of Tyre: Hezbollah and Southern Lebanon
- Assur: Syrian and Northern Iraq
Interesting note: Contrary to popular belief, the word Selah in the bible at the end of verse 6 does not indicate a “timely pause” or ask the reader to “meditate on what they read”. Instead, it refers to the red rock city of Selah Petra where the Jews will flee during the time of Jacob’s trouble.
“Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:7
One by one, we have watched over the last year and a half most of these nations coming together under the mantle of the Arab Spring, and we believe that in short order the remaining nations will as well. This partnership is unique in both world and Muslim history, but is well-known to students of bible prophecy. The Psalm 83 Confederacy is alive and well.
Keep in mind that none of this would have been possible had it not been for Barack Hussein Obama supporting the efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood with American taxpayer dollars, influence and military might. and everywhere he has travelled he has beat the drum for other major nations to kick in money and support as well.
You might say it’s the world’s largest non-secret conspiracy theory
Now that he has won a second term as US president, Obama’s naked ambitions will become more and more obvious and all consuming. He has been placed in office by God primarily to judge American for her rebellion and wickedness, and to create the Psalm 83 confederacy.
Can it be stopped? No, it cannot. Ultimately, God’s Sovereignty will decide the exact day and hour of when the attack outlined in Psalm 83 will happen. And no amount of planning and scheming by man will stop or even delay its progress.
Its exciting to be alive in the time of the end spoke of in the bible, just make sure you have this squared away before events really heat up.
TEL AVIV (Reuters) – A bomb exploded on a bus in central Tel Aviv on Wednesday, wounding 15 people in what Israeli officials said was a terrorist attack that could complicate efforts to secure a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
Celebratory gunfire rang out across Gaza as the news spread and the territory’s Islamist rulers Hamas praised the bombing, but no one claimed immediate responsibility.
The blast shattered windows on the bus as it drove along a tree-lined street next to Israel’s huge defense ministry headquarters. Israel’s ambulance service said four people suffered moderate-to-severe injuries and 11 were lightly hurt.
Police said it was not a suicide attack and suggested that someone might have left the device on the number 142 bus.
The driver, who escaped largely unscathed, told reporters he had not seen anyone suspicious get on board.
“I felt the explosion … Smoke was everywhere, you couldn’t see a thing,” he said. The blue and white vehicle was not torn apart by the blast, indicating it was a relatively small device.
The bombing happened on the eighth day of an Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip and coincided with intensive diplomatic efforts to secure a lasting truce.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri hailed the explosion.
“Hamas blesses the attack in Tel Aviv and sees it as a natural response to the Israeli massacres…in Gaza,” he told Reuters. “Palestinian factions will resort to all means in order to protect our Palestinian civilians in the absence of a world effort to stop the Israeli aggression.” source – Reuters
