Brotherhood gave $25 million to al-Qaeda for support in Egypt, says former jihad leader

April 12, 2014 – 9:52 pm
Raymond Ibrahim Apr 11, 2014 at 7:06am Al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, United States 2 Comments Yesterday on Haya TV, Nabil Na‘im, a former leader of Egypt’s Islamic Jihad and close confidante of current al-Qaeda leader, Ayman Zawahiri—who also helped found Egypt’s Islamic Jihad—asserted that, during the reign of former president Muhammad Morsi, Zawahiri was given $25 million from Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat al-Shatter to organize, fund, and assemble the jihadi groups “in order to support the Brotherhood.”  (For more on the Muslim Brotherhood/Al-Qaeda relationship, click here). It should be noted that al-Shatter, though not a member of Morsi’s government—only a leader of the Brotherhood—was, after being imprisoned after the revolution, asked for personally by John McCain during his visit to Egypt some months back, when he pushed for Brotherhood reinstatement.  Also, U.S. ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson was reportedly seen visiting Shatter often. Earlier, Na‘im, the former Jihad leader had said that attempts by the U.S. to “reconcile” Egypt with the Muslim ...

Muslim Brotherhood Launches Political Party in America

April 11, 2014 – 11:47 am
Jim Denison | Denison Forum on Truth and Culture | Wednesday, April 09, 2014 The Muslim Brotherhood is launching a political party in America for the purpose of electing Muslims and influencing legislation that is favorable to Islam.  This development should come as no surprise: the number of mosques in the United States has escalated 74 percent since 2000.  The government of Turkey is building a $100 million mega mosque in Maryland.  There are now 66 mosques in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. According to a recent survey, 98 percent of mosque leaders say Muslims should be involved in American institutions, and 91 percent agree that Muslims should be involved in politics.  We should expect to see a growing number of Muslim candidates for office, and a growing number of Muslims who will support them financially. Islam is not the only non-Christian movement to make headlines today, as this is "Humanism at Yale Week."  Monday was "Ask an Atheist" day; Tuesday ...

Young being indoctrinated into jihad in Pakistan, confesses Indian Mujahideen terrorist Zia Ur Rehman

Robert Spencer Mar 24, 2014 at 3:58pm Pakistan's double game, Palestinian Authority 6 Comments “It started with morning prayers and physical training exercises. Breakfast was given at 8:00 which was followed by religious classes. This was followed by training of using weapon including AK-47, INSAS, G-2 gun and pistols. There was lunch break between 12 to 2 PM after which they were taught firing.” Religious classes, followed by weapons training. Yet still the Western intelligentsia insists that this kind of thing has nothing to do with Islam. The religious classes are just a screen for their economic discontent, you see, and if we give them enough money, this will all go away. “Young being indoctrinated into ‘jihad’ in Pakistan, confesses Indian Mujahideen terrorist Zia Ur Rehman,” from DNA India, March 24: Alleged Indian Mujahideen terrorist Zia Ur Rehman alias Waqas, who was arrested by the Special Cell of Delhi Police on Saturday, has further shed light ...

Robert Spencer Mar 24, 2014 at 5:50pm Muslim persecution of Christians, Syria 27 Comments Shhh! Let’s keep this strictly between us, okay? “Talk about extreme, militant Islamists and the atrocities that they have perpetrated globally might undercut the positive achievements that we Catholics have attained in our inter-religious dialogue with devout Muslims.” — Robert McManus, Roman Catholic Bishop of Worcester, Massachusetts, February 8, 2013 “Activist: Rebels Robbing Homes, Desecrating Churches in Kessab,” from the Armenian Weekly, March 23: LATAKIA, Syria (A.W.)—Around 400 families from Kessab have taken refuge in Latakia following attacks on their town, while the fate of several individuals who have stayed behind remains unclear, the Armenian Weekly has learned. “Many Armenian families are staying with relatives and friends, while others have sought refuge in the Armenian Church and the church’s hall,” said Syrian Armenian community activist Nerses Sarkissian during a phone interview with Weekly editor Khatchig Mouradian. “The Aleppo Armenian Prelacy as well as the Red ...

Iraq: Muslim cleric who stood against terrorism is gunned down

March 22, 2014 – 8:04 pm
Robert Spencer Mar 21, 2014 at 5:13am Iraq, Islamic reform 35 Comments Here yet again we see why there are not more genuine Muslim reformers. Sheikh Abdullah al-Hassan was murdered in Mosul; similarly, last year in Morocco Sheikh Ahmed Assid said: “To call [upon people] to follow Islam by the use of violence and constraint is an act of terrorism.” For that, he has been condemned, declared a non-Muslim, and threatened with death. “Gunmen kill prominent Iraqi cleric in Mosul,” from Al-Shorfa.com, March 19 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): Unknown gunmen killed a cleric, who had taken a stand against extremism and terrorism, at his home in southern Mosul, the Iraqi police in Ninawa province said Wednesday (March 19th). “Unknown gunmen attacked prominent cleric Sheikh Abdullah al-Hassan, imam and preacher at al-Sheikh Abdullah Mosque, while he was at home” in al-Imam neighbourhood, Ninawa police spokesman Col. Khalid al-Hamdani told Al-Shorfa. “They opened fire on him, killing him immediately,” he ...

University of Michigan: Pro- “Palestinian” activists violently threaten pro-Israel students

March 22, 2014 – 7:33 pm
Robert Spencer Mar 21, 2014 at 4:36pm academia, Islamic antisemitism, Jihadist intimidation and thuggery,Leftist/Jihadist Alliance 22 Comments We see this again and again: Leftists and Islamic supremacists increasingly imitate Hitler’s Brownshirts, violently menacing anyone who dares stand up against their support for jihad terror, oppression and hatred. It is a tacit admission of abject intellectual bankruptcy, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t potentially lethal. “Palestinian Activists Violently Threaten Pro-Israel Students,” by Adam Kredo for the Washington Free Beacon, March 21: Pro-Palestinian activists on the University of Michigan campus have had the cops called on them for threatening pro-Israel students and staging a sit-in over the student government’s refusal to back an anti-Israel initiative to divest from the Jewish state. University of Michigan police were contacted Wednesday evening after two pro-Palestinian activists allegedly threatened a student who refused to support their boycott initiative. The threatening rhetoric used by these pro-Palestinian activists is part of wider campaign by the University ...

Pro-Muslim Brotherhood cleric calls on supporters to terrorize Egypt

March 22, 2014 – 11:51 am
Raymond Ibrahim Mar 19, 2014 at 11:19am Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood 9 Comments Recently on live TV, Sheikh Abdul Maqsud, an Islamic jurisprudent, issued a fatwa obligating “Muslims” (in this context, Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Egypt) to engage in acts of terror against “infidels” (in this context, the Egyptian government and anyone else opposing the Brotherhood). Maqsud began by quoting the well-known hadith in Sahih Muslim wherein prophet Muhammad reportedly said that if a Muslim sees forbidden acts being committed, he should forcefully stop them, “with the hand”; if he is not capable of doing so, he should try to prevent them “with his tongue”; and if he still cannot do that, he should at least be against such acts “in his heart.” Maqsud’s point was that jihad must be understood in the context of capability.  Because the Muslim Brotherhood and its jihadi allies and supporters are simply not capable of taking the Egyptian state head on—due to, as ...

UK: Non-Muslim teachers bullied, smeared, driven from their schools for resisting Islamic supremacists

March 22, 2014 – 11:47 am
Robert Spencer Mar 19, 2014 at 11:49am Islamic supremacism, Jihadist intimidation and thuggery, United Kingdom 48 Comments This is the Britain that British authorities have forced upon the British people. This is the Britain that British authorities have chosen. This is the Britain that British authorities have wanted. This is the Britain that British authorities have brought about by means of their immigration policies, their supine attitude toward Islamic supremacism, and their eagerness to appease Leftists and Islamic supremacists even to the point of barring foes of jihad such as Pamela Geller and me from entering the country. This is the Britain that Tony Blair, Jack Straw, Jacqui Smith, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Theresa May and a host of others have brought about. And now they have to live in it. “Forced out by fanatics: Head teachers reveal how they’ve been bullied, smeared and driven from their jobs for resisting Islamic extremists,” by Sue Reid ...
