Muslim Zuhdi Jasser Condemns Obama's ISIS Is Not Islamic Statement

You might know Dr. Zuhdi Jasser from his stint as the narrator on the Clarion Fund's 2008 documentary film "The Third Jihad"- but he's also a medical doctor, a former US Navy officer, a devout Muslim, and a fierce opponent of political Islam or Islamism.

After so many people including Barack Obama, John Kerry, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest have stated that ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) aka ISIS aka Islamic State is neither a state nor does it represent Islam, Jasser felt compelled to respond.

In the interview below Jasser tells them all to "stop telling us Muslims what is Islamic."  He claims ISIS is "the byproduct" of the ideology of oppressive Muslim nations like Saudi Arabia, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the Islamic Republic of Iran.  Obama is "burying the reformers from having a seat at the table" by enabling Islamic theocrats.

Jasser wants to reform Islam, to separate mosque and state, he believes Muslims have a problem and they need to "own" it, people like Obama and Kerry are making that very difficult.

We need more like Jasser speaking up.

"Anonymous" Hackers Take On ISIS #OpIceISIS

It appears the latest project of the hacktivist group Anonymous is ISIS, so they are targeting those countries they believe are aiding and abetting the terrorist group, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.  With an added warning to the U.S.

They released a video on YouTube stating the following:

To the citizens of the world,
We are Anonymous.

The events currently transpiring in Iraq have made us as a collective re-evaluate our priorities in regards to recent operations. The Iraqi people have gone through almost two weeks of sheer terror most of us will never know nor experience. We are held by a code of honor to protect those who are defenseless, both in the cyber world and the real world.

Before our inception, the Iraq war was well underway and crimes against humanity were rampant. The United States had no small part in this. When the United States government decided to begin an unnecessary war with the promise of oil and funds to the military industrial complex, it failed to realize the severity of taking out a leader who controlled a strong internal security force. This led to the power vacuum we witnessed after his capture. Yes, Saddam Hussein was ruthless and violent, but with this war, the US was guilty of the same crimes (i.e. Blackwater, Abu Ghraib, etc.).

Fast forward to today, and Iraq is descending into chaos yet again thanks to the dastardly ruthless gang aiming to establish an "Islamic" state combining both Iraq and Syria, thus doing away with the post-WWI borders. They call themselves ISIS. These savages who have no religion or morality are bent on burning everything in their path, killing and pillaging as they go. They must be stopped.

Several days ago, their electronic division assumed control of one of our twitter accounts (@TheAnonMessage) claiming it for themselves and releasing several graphic photos of their assault near Baghdad. These tweets have since been deleted. We sincerely apologize to the twitter followers who had to witness this without warning. This was an unfortunate, unprecedented takeover and steps have been taken to further secure this account from any future attempted hacks.

We would also like to comment on the mainstream media who are pushing the division of Iraqis even further. The Iraqi public is made up of two Islamic sects: Sunnis and Shias. There are also other groups which include Kurds, Turkmen, Assyrians, Christians and others. The media would want us to believe that ISIS is made up of strictly Sunnis and the Iraqi army is a majority-controlled and operated Shia faction. This is false. The groups that have been listed INCLUDING Sunnis are enlisted in the Iraqi army and Sunni clerics in Iraq have also called for their followers to join ranks with their Shia brothers to defend their homelands.

ISIS is a group made up of a Takfiri sect which is regarded by many prestigious clerics and organizations including Al-Azhar, as unislamic. In fact, they have denounced them as "Khawarij" and declared that they must be exterminated from Islamic lands. This is why we urge the American mainstream media to stop releasing false information and further escalating the violence with their ignorant journalism.

In conclusion, we stand by every righteous being when we say that we have also declared complete solidarity against those who affiliate themselves with ISIS and those who control them.
Aljazeera; you have tarnished your reputation by spewing your lies and your treasonous support to ISIS. You will not escape us.
To the state of Qatar, Turkey, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; you will not escape our wrath. Evidence shows your continued support and supply to ISIS. If this does not promptly stop, we will be forced to unleash our entire legion against your pathetic excuse of a cyber-security.
And to the United States; another attempt at fueling your military industrial complex for the sake of security and democracy will be grounds for our complete assault against your virtual government infrastructure. You have been warned.

We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Expect us.

Like most liberal, p.c. fools out there- including Barack Obama and John Kerry- Anonymous claims the "savages" have "no religion or morality." They have it right on the lack of morality, but message to Anonymous- just because you don't think they are Muslims or represent the Islamic religion, doesn't make it so. They most definitely consider themselves Muslim, and follow the teachings of Mohammed in great detail.

Here's an exclusive interview on France24 with one member of Anonymous, regarding what motivated them to tackle ISIS through social media.

Video- Syrian Woman Films ISIL In Raqqa With Hidden Camera

One brave Syrian woman filmed life in Islamic State infested Raqqa using a hidden camera.

Under ISIS aka ISIL, the women are now forced to wear niqabs. Although some wear it by choice. Towards the end of the video snippet, the woman enters an Internet club filled with French females speaking to their families, and insisting they will never go home.

ISIS Propaganda Video - Flames of War

ISIS's slick 58 minute propaganda film "Flames of War- Fighting Has Just Begun." It's produced by Alhayat Media Center.

It's their attempt to intimidate the U.S. and the rest of the West into stopping our fight against them.

Note the American jihadist towards the end of the video, and the Canadian narrator.

Gazans Back Up Claims Of Hamas War Crimes

Mudar Zahran posted  an article on Gatestone Institute detailing the interviews he had with ordinary Gazan civilians. Although the world has condemned Israel for alleged atrocities during the 50 day war, these Gazans confirm that Hamas was responsible for much of the death and destruction.

While the world's media has been blaming Israel for the death of Gazan civilians during Operation Protective Edge, this correspondent decided to speak with Gazans themselves to hear what they had to say.

They spoke of Hamas atrocities and war crimes implicating Hamas in the civilian deaths of its own people.

Although Gazans, fearful of Hamas's revenge against them, were afraid to speak to the media, friends in the West Bank offered introductions to relatives in Gaza. One, a renowned Gazan academic, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that as soon as someone talked to a Western journalist, he was immediately questioned by Hamas and accused of "communicating with the Mossad". "Hamas makes sure that the average Gazan will not talk to Western journalists -- or actually any journalists at all," he said, continuing:

Here are just some of the comments:

"If Hamas does not like you for any reason all they have to do now is say you are a Mossad agent and kill you." — A., a Fatah member in Gaza.

"Hamas wanted us butchered so it could win the media war against Israel showing our dead children on TV and then get money from Qatar." — T., former Hamas Ministry officer.

"They would fire rockets and then run away quickly, leaving us to face Israeli bombs for what they did." — D., Gazan journalist.

"Hamas imposed a curfew: anyone walking out in the street was shot. That way people had to stay in their homes, even if they were about to get bombed. Hamas held the whole Gazan population as a human shield." — K., graduate student

"The Israeli army allows supplies to come in and Hamas steals them. It seems even the Israelis care for us more than Hamas." — E., first-aid volunteer.

"We are under Hamas occupation, and if you ask most of us, we would rather be under Israeli occupation… We miss the days when we were able to work inside Israel and make good money. We miss the security and calm Israel provided when it was here." — S., graduate of an American university, former Hamas sympathizer.
And yet there are still fools, people I know, some of them Jews, who still blame Israel.

ISIS Supporter In Houston Deli?

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in Turkey, not surprising. This video, shot via cellphone by some Iraqis in Turkey, shows alleged ISIS fighters riding a tram in Istanbul. Then again, there are some who believe the Turks are aiding and abetting militants who are crossing from their borders into Syria, actually providing shelter and food, weapons and medical treatment.

But ISIS supporters eating at a Houston deli?

This was first published on Sept. 11, the 13th anniversary of the terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. According to Houston’s KTRK, a photo of a man wearing an Islamic robe with an ISIS logo has been making the rounds on various social media sites and has quite a few people wondering if indeed, ISIS is in America.
KTRK said they’ve been trying to get more information on this but hasn’t had much luck so far.

2005 Book Predicts The Future Of Terrorism With Frightening Accuracy

Back in August 2005, Spiegel Online published an article about an Arab language book written by Fouad Hussein titled "al-Zarqawi - al-Qaida's Second Generation."  Hussein's book predicts the future of terrorism, and so far his predictions have been uncannily and frighteningly spot on.

Hussein, a Jordanian journalist who was jailed for a while as a political prisoner, had the opportunity to spend some quality time with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (before he was offed in 2006) and other al-Qaeda leaders, including Egyptian terrorist Seif al-Adl (who is still out there).

Al-Qaeda has a master plan for establishing an Islamic Caliphate, and Hussein shares that two decade, seven phase plan in his book.

The First Phase Known as "the awakening" -- this has already been carried out and was supposed to have lasted from 2000 to 2003, or more precisely from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington to the fall of Baghdad in 2003. The aim of the attacks of 9/11 was to provoke the US into declaring war on the Islamic world and thereby "awakening" Muslims. "The first phase was judged by the strategists and masterminds behind al-Qaida as very successful," writes Hussein. "The battle field was opened up and the Americans and their allies became a closer and easier target." The terrorist network is also reported as being satisfied that its message can now be heard "everywhere."

The Second Phase "Opening Eyes" is, according to Hussein's definition, the period we are now in and should last until 2006. Hussein says the terrorists hope to make the western conspiracy aware of the "Islamic community." Hussein believes this is a phase in which al-Qaida wants an organization to develop into a movement. The network is banking on recruiting young men during this period. Iraq should become the center for all global operations, with an "army" set up there and bases established in other Arabic states.

The Third Phase This is described as "Arising and Standing Up" and should last from 2007 to 2010. "There will be a focus on Syria," prophesies Hussein, based on what his sources told him. The fighting cadres are supposedly already prepared and some are in Iraq. Attacks on Turkey and -- even more explosive -- in Israel are predicted. Al-Qaida's masterminds hope that attacks on Israel will help the terrorist group become a recognized organization. The author also believes that countries neighboring Iraq, such as Jordan, are also in danger.

The Fourth Phase Between 2010 and 2013, Hussein writes that al-Qaida will aim to bring about the collapse of the hated Arabic governments. The estimate is that "the creeping loss of the regimes' power will lead to a steady growth in strength within al-Qaida." At the same time attacks will be carried out against oil suppliers and the US economy will be targeted using cyber terrorism.
We are currently in the Fifth Phase, and remember this was written back in 2005. Although ISIS is not directly affiliated with al-Qaeda, they still have the same short term goals.

The Fifth Phase This will be the point at which an Islamic state, or caliphate, can be declared. The plan is that by this time, between 2013 and 2016, Western influence in the Islamic world will be so reduced and Israel weakened so much, that resistance will not be feared. Al-Qaida hopes that by then the Islamic state will be able to bring about a new world order.
If we don't do something about this now, the following two phases are what we can expect, though it seems we are entering the Sixth Phase, a tad early.

The Sixth Phase Hussein believes that from 2016 onwards there will a period of "total confrontation." As soon as the caliphate has been declared the "Islamic army" it will instigate the "fight between the believers and the non-believers" which has so often been predicted by Osama bin Laden.
The Seventh Phase This final stage is described as "definitive victory." Hussein writes that in the terrorists' eyes, because the rest of the world will be so beaten down by the "one-and-a-half billion Muslims," the caliphate will undoubtedly succeed. This phase should be completed by 2020, although the war shouldn't last longer than two years.
The author of this article, Yassin Musharbash, like most fools did not believe back then that al-Qaeda (and other Islamists hellbent on creating an Islamic caliphate) was capable of achieving its goals.

Nevertheless, there is no way the scenario he depicts can be seen as a plan which al-Qaida can follow step by step. The terrorist network just doesn't work like that anymore. The significance of the central leadership has diminished and its direct commands have lost a great deal of importance. The supposed master plan for the years 2000 to 2020 reads in parts more like a group of ideas cobbled together in retrospect, than something planned and presented in advance. And not to mention the terrorist agenda is simply unworkable: the idea that al-Qaida could set up a caliphate in the entire Islamic world is absurd. The 20-year plan is based mainly on religious ideas. It hardly has anything to do with reality -- especially phases four to seven.
I guess he had no idea that new terrorist organizations like ISIS would pop up to implement the last phases. I wonder what he thinks now.

Pakistani Professor Accused Of Blasphemy Gunned Down

This is what happens to "moderate" or "liberal" Muslims who have the courage to buck the conservative Muslim line.

A Pakistani academic known for promoting liberal views on Islam has been shot dead by gunmen – two years after being accused of committing blasphemy in a speech he made in the US.

Dr Muhammad Shakil Auj, Dean of the faculty of Islamic Studies at the University of Karachi, was attacked by two gunmen on a motorbike as he was making his way in his car to a function at the city’s Iranian cultural centre. A junior teaching colleague was also hit and suffered an injury to her arm.

“A bullet pierced through his head, proving fatal,” senior police officer Pir Mohammad Shah told the Associated Press. “We are investigating the killing. It would be premature to state the motive at the moment.”

The 54-year academic was known as someone who had spoken out on many issues in Islam and written several articles. One of the articles had suggested Muslim women should be allowed to marry non-Muslim men. He had also said Muslim women did not need to remove lipstick or make-up before going to prayer.

In 2012, Mr Auj, 54, had complained to police that four colleagues from the university had threatened him and sent him text messages accusing him of blasphemy. They had claimed a speech he had made that year in the US amounted to blasphemy.

One of the academics he complained about had previously held his position within the department. The four men face charges but are currently out on bail, according to reports.
