How to prevent another domestic terror attack

(HERITAGE FOUNDATION) — The Orlando attack was the 86th instance of Islamist terror in the U.S. since 9/11. In the aftermath of such a horrific attack, America can learn vital lessons on how to stop the next attack. The U.S. must first commit to proactively combating terrorism at home and abroad.

Of the 22 plots or attacks since the start of 2015, 19 have been committed by individuals inspired by ISIS (Islamic State) or other terrorist groups in Syria, such as the al-Qaeda–linked al-Nusra. Defeating radical Islamism abroad is critical to defeating it at home. Some have rashly promoted gun control as the solution to this kind of terror attack. Rather, counterterrorism policies are what would stop attacks like Orlando from occurring again.
Proactively Defending the U.S. Homeland

DHS and the FBI stand at the center of many of the U.S.’s efforts to combat terrorism. Despite their importance, their efforts are often plagued by inefficiencies and ineffectiveness. To better protect the U.S. from terrorism, Congress should:

Expand Active Shooter Threat Training across the country. Mass shootings in busy areas will always be a threat given America’s free society. Since state and local law enforcement officers will be the first to respond, training for active shooter events should be expanded through existing programs such as the Active Shooter Threat Training Program and corresponding instructor training program.
Stress community outreach as a vital tool. The U.S. should facilitate strong community outreach. Such capabilities are key to building trust in local communities, especially in high-risk areas. If the U.S. is to thwart “lone wolf” Islamist terrorist attacks successfully, it must put effective community outreach operations at the tip of the spear.
Maintain essential counterterrorism tools. Support for important investigative tools is essential to maintaining the security of the U.S. and combating terrorist threats. Legitimate government surveillance programs are also a vital component of U.S. national security and should be allowed to continue. The need for effective counterterrorism operations, however, does not relieve the government of its obligation to follow the law and respect individual privacy and liberty.
Ensure that the FBI more readily and regularly shares information with state and local law enforcement, treating state and local partners as critical actors in the fight against terrorism. State, local, and private-sector partners must send and receive timely information from the FBI. Despite the lessons of 9/11 and other terrorist plots, the culture of the FBI continues to resist sharing information with state and local law enforcement.

Combatting Terrorism Abroad

Rolling back—and defeating—ISIS requires a global approach in which the U.S. leads a multi-pronged, multi-nation effort that seeks to deny ISIS the ability to hold territory, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan; disrupts its recruitment of foreign fighters; and counters its destructive ideology. The U.S. must:

Deny territorial gains. One part of the solution must be military. The Islamic State derives much of its cachet and legitimacy from its success. Driving ISIS from its conquered territories will undermine the group’s legitimacy in the eyes of aspiring jihadists, thereby hurting its ability to recruit.
Shut down the foreign fighter pipeline. The key to shutting down the flow of foreign fighters is intelligence. The U.S. and its allies must work together to identify those individuals who intend to act on the violent Islamist ideology. This requires hard intelligence work and even closer coordination between countries to identify suspicious travel. This includes pushing allies to take greater intelligence and security measures that reflect the global nature of the threat. The U.S. should make greater use of state and local law enforcement, both as intelligence sources and as intelligence users.

Counter Islamist ideology.

The other important task is to defeat the ideology of Islamist extremism. Only Muslims have the knowledge and credibility within their communities to lead this fight.

GENERATION JIHAD: Massive European civil war predicted by scholar of Islam who says jobless young Muslims are increasingly turning to radical groups

(UK THE SUN) — AN ISLAM expert has warned of a civil war across Europe as more young Muslims are being increasingly radicalized.

Professor Gilles Kepel, from the Sciences Po in Paris, claims a growing number of Muslims with poor job prospects are forming a “Jihad Generation” to continue to commit acts of terror across Europe.

According to German newspaper Die Welt, Kepel said the terror group’s aim is to incite hatred towards Muslims from the rest of the society which would eventually radicalize others to the point that Europe could enter into full-blown civil war.

Kepel, who is a specialist on Islamic and contemporary Arab world, added these ISIS fanatics not only want to destroy Europe, but to eliminate more moderate Islamic opposition.

“The terrorism is above all an expression of a war within Islam,” he explained. “The long-term goal of the Jihad Generation is to destroy Europe through civil war and then build an Islamic society from the ashes.

Professor Gilles Kepel claims the ISIS fanatics want to continue to spread fear and generate hostile reactions towards all Muslims to radicalize others

He believes their strategy is similar to the expansion of Islamic State in Syria, Iraq, and Libya where the terrorist organization was able to use the chaos of civil war to slowly build its forces, grow in power, and rapidly seize territory.

Yazidi victim of ISIS genocide: ‘They beheaded children with axes’

(CNS NEWS) — By Michael W. Chapman

A Yazidi mother and one of her sons who survived the Islamic State’s attack on Sinjar and surrounding villages in northern Iraq in August 2014, said that ISIS “shot and killed” many people, kidnapped young girls for sex, filmed the abuse and texted it to the girls’ families, and even “beheaded children with axes.”

The mother also disclosed that her husband “felt so helpless” that he committed suicide and that two of her sons, in shock and anguish, “painted their faces” with their dead father’s blood.

In the video by Dr. Hawar Moradi, who worked with the Yazidis in the fall of 2014, and which is posted on the website of Yezidi Human Rights Organization – International, the mother explains what happened as the Yazidi men started to run out of ammunition while defending their community from ISIS.

“After that the ammunition was finished,” the mother said. “We had to flee. Many didn’t have a car and as they fled on feet they were shot and killed. Many people were killed.”

“They [ISIS] took by force women and girls,” she said. “They cut off the head of the children. They caused us unbearable suffering. May God punish them. He [the woman’s husband] was a soldier and had a Kalashnikov [rifle].”

“They called and told us that they [ISIS] had abducted our girls,” said the mother. “People were talking about children dying of thirst, hunger, and being beheaded by ISIS. They abused our girls and women. They filmed while abusing our girls and women and sent it to our phones.”

“They tied their hands and led them away in cars,” she said. “They beheaded children with axes.”

She then explained that her husband had been 40 years old. “He felt so helpless and angry,” she said, that “he shot himself to death.”

One of her sons, in the video, then said, “We [Yazidis] were all alone. Arabs were all around us. Shingal [Sinjar] was alone and surrounded all around by Arabs. Daesh [ISIS] was on the hunt for the Yazidis. They came and surrounded us.”

“My father committed suicide because he felt helpless,” said the boy. “I and my brother touched his blood with our hands and painted our faces with it.”

Islam Destroys the Conscience

(INFO ON ISLAM) — ALL of Islam derives from Mohammed and nowhere else. Even aspects of Islam that appear to derive from Christianity and Judaism are actually corrupted versions of those religions which have been twisted and perverted to suit Mohammed’s psychopathic agenda.

By our standards, Mohammed’s actions were evil. But Muslims live in a different moral universe from the rest of us, where the very definition of good and evil are determined by what Mohammed (the Perfect man) did and said. Islam aims to completely destroy the conscience and free will of the Muslim and replace it with the cloned behavior of a psychopathic megalomaniac.

The Golden Rule or Ethic of Reciprocity is the basis of all religions apart from Islam (and maybe Satanism). It says ‘Treat others as you would like to be treated’ or ‘That which is hateful to you, do not do to another’.

But in Islam, the ‘Ethic of Reciprocity’ applies only to Muslims. The nearest approximation to the Golden Rule is “None of you truly believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself”. In other words, share the booty equally with your fellow (male) Muslims.

In contrast, Allah encourages murder, rape, pillage, extortion, parasitism and enslavement of non-Muslims, who are ‘najis’ subhumans to be treated as expendable garbage. Reciprocity does not extend beyond the global gang (Ummah). Muslim ethics are the ethics of the Mafia.

Islam is not about following one’s conscience, but about correct behavior. If one imitates the behaviors of Mohammed (The Perfect Man), then one has done all that is required to be a good Muslim. Hence ethical principles, as we understand them, are not a part of Islam.

With no system of morality or ethics as we would understand it, the greatest good is to work towards Islam’s domination of the entire world , and to achieve this objective any means are justified, just as Mohammed was vicious and ruthless in using any means to spread his cult.

Mohammed murdered, tortured, raped, looted, lied and extorted to further the expansion of Islam, and his modern followers do exactly the same.

Salman Rushdie reveals the power of today’s Islamism

(COUNTER JIHAD) — BY Bruce Cornibe

The Washington Times reports:Author Salman Rushdie, of the controversial novel The Satanic Verses, has spent a large stint underground being protected by the British government. This is because he allegedly blasphemed Islam’s prophet Muhammad. Rushdie, whose life has been greatly affected by Sharia inspired laws, is speaking out against the politically correct climate of our time,

“Today, I would be accused of Islamophobia and racism. People would say I had attacked a cultural minority,” the writer [said]. He cited as an example of the change the handling of Charlie Hebdo, where an often scabrous satirical newspaper was threatened for years by Islamists and eventually numerous employees there were killed in a terrorist attack.

“Instead of responding to attacks against freedom of expression, voices were raised to decry blasphemy and to propose compromise with terrorism. There is no blasphemy in a democracy,” Mr. Rushdie said.

In the interview, the writer decried the reluctance of Western governments to use the words “Muslim” or “Islam,” preferring instead to attribute terrorist attacks to “unbalanced” people or to a generic thing like “radicalism” or “extremism,” even when the attackers themselves say Islam is their motive.

The ‘Islamophobia’ narrative that seeks to silence any kind of criticism of Islam is in fact a type of anti-blasphemy tactic used by Islamists. Quran 33:57 states, “Indeed, those who abuse Allah and His Messenger – Allah has cursed them in this world and the Hereafter and prepared for them a humiliating punishment.” The worst part is that prominent institutions and figures are pushing this narrative. The University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Race & Gender (CRG), has even released an “Islamophobia Reporting App” for one’s cell phone. The same CRG, whose definition of ‘Islamophobia’ includes, “a perceived or real Muslim threat[.]” Also, one can speculate that London’s new Islamic mayor, Sadiq Khan, is going to try and target critics of Islamic doctrine in his effort to police “online hate crimes[.]”[READ MORE]

Islamic State issues new call for attacks in the West, all non-believers ‘legitimate targets’

(THE FOREIGN DESK) — By Lisa Daftari

The Islamic State has released a new online magazine urging adherents to carry out more so-called lone-wolf attacks globally.

Targets for attacks include businessmen on their way to work, young people playing sports in the park and even “the street vendor selling flowers to those passing by.” A photo from what appears to be a British market vendor selling flowers has a caption beneath it that reads “Even the blood of a merry crusader citizen selling flowers to passersby.”

Jihadis are urged to strike such soft targets with no special precedence to attack soldiers or policemen, but rather to strike terror into the hearts of all disbelievers.

Rumiyah is a reference to an Islamic prophecy that foretells the downfall of Rome following the collapse of Constantinople which fell in the Muslim conquest of 1415 and calls for the targeting of all non-Muslims.

The magazine features recently-killed Abu Mohammed Al Adnani on the front cover with a foreword arguing that contrary to the West’s belief, the Islamic State dream does not die with the death of its leaders.

A four page eulogy for Abu Mansur Al Muhajir, a dead Australian jihadist of Lebanese descent, urges Islamic State attacks in Australia.

In a chilling essay entitled “The Kafir’s blood is Halal for you. So shed it,” the magazine cites references from the Koran and early Islamic scholars that the war against the non-believer is not limited to the ‘enemy’ fighting “frontline operations.” Rather “he has also ordered that they be slain wherever they may be – on or off the battlefield.”

At the conclusion of the article, Muslims who live in “Dar al-Kufr” (literally land of disbelievers) are told that shedding “the blood of the disbelievers is halal (permissible) and killing them is a form of worship to Allah, the Lord, King, and God of mankind.”

ISIS chainsaw massacre: Nine youths literally sawed in half, accused of being part of a resistance faction

(INQUISITR) — Just when you thought ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) could not possibly develop more heinous ways of executing captives and prisoners, news out of the besieged city of Mosul, Iraq, reveals that a group of youths have been put to death in what amounts to nothing short of a chainsaw massacre. According to a source, nine Mosul youths were killed, all accused of belonging to an anti-ISIS resistance faction.

Iraqi News reported August 31 that nine youths were convicted in an Islamic State sharia court of being members of a resistance faction in the city. They were summarily sentenced to a public execution. The nine were then tied to a pole Wednesday and cut in two with a chainsaw by ISIS militants.

A source, who wished to remain anonymous, told Iraqi News, “The death sentence pronounced by ISIS sharia court stated that the men should be tied to an iron pole in the center of Tal Afar Square in Mosul and then sliced into two with an electric chainsaw.”

The news outlet went on to note that ISIS has executed thousands of the city’s citizens since taking over Mosul in June 2014. Although allegations and charges have varied, most of those killed by the extremists were convicted of collaborating with enemy forces.

The ISIS chainsaw killings come just a week after Islamic State extremists, after convicting six individuals of collaborating with the enemy in sharia court, killed the group by lowering the then still living men into boiling vats of tar. According to Inquisitr, the killings were also a public execution in Mosul, the carrying out of the sentence said to have been done to instill fear in the citizenry.

2021: The United Shariah States of America

(WND) — A note from the year 2021:

The Jordanian journalist Fouad Hussein warned us. Spelled it all out, albeit it in Arabic, for us all to read. Told us all that this was the plan. Back in 2005 he penned the warning shot in his book “Al-Zarqawi: The Second Generation of Al Qaeda.”

What exactly did he warn about?

That damn 20-year plan.

The evil, ambitious, prescient plan that led us to where we are now, here in 2021, where ISIS has Islamized America.

Where Christians, Jews, homosexuals, atheists, and moderate Muslims have been choked out of their right to conscience.

Where the sight of a beautiful woman’s hair is a faded, distant memory now covered by a hijab in perpetuity.

Where the surviving remnant of yesterday’s Western elite now cower in submissive fear to their newfound Islamic power brokers.

Where rock ‘n’ roll, as AC/DC once deeply protested was patently untrue, has now been outlawed and legally deemed noise pollution.

The 20-year plan has unfolded with terrifying precision in accordance with its blueprint.

Phase 1 (2000-2003): Poke, irritate and provoke the West. USS Cole. 9/11. DONE.

Phase 2 (2003-2006): Normalize apocalyptic Islamism throughout the Muslim world. Establish Iraq as a centerpiece of operations for jihad. Create an army there. Establish contingent bases firmly placed in other Arabic states. DONE.

Phase 3 (2007-2010): Expand the fight and target those with secular governments averse to Islamism. Hyper-focus on Syria. But also Jordan, Turkey and, of course, Israel, the little Satan. DONE.

Phase 4 (2010-2013): Dismantle the infidel regimes of the Middle East through popular revolts and revolution. Stoke the flames of insurgencies. The Arab Spring. Egypt, Bahrain, Syria, Libya, Yemen. Continue cyber-attacks on the U.S. Intensify the cyber propaganda campaigns.DONE.

Phase 5 (2013-2016): Formally declare an established caliphate. The one that the Western media mocked any commentator for warning about. Exploit the weak Western will and re-create the first caliphate in nine decades. This is the first step in creating the Islamic New World Order in which a clear divide exists between a united Muslim community of believers (dar al-Islam) and the unbelievers (dar al-harb), or house of war. ISIS, ISIL, IS. Whatever the iteration, it has now been placed firmly on the to-done list. DONE.

Phase 6 (2016-2019): Move toward total confrontation. Use the caliphate as a catalyst for a focused instigation of the West. Through continued attacks, force the West to muster their last long-drawn effort to attempt to confront the inevitable growth of the caliphate. Orlando. Paris. Brussels. Nice. DONE.

Phase 7 (2020): Push through into definitive victory. The caliphate crosses the line into victory over the West. The West’s effort to use supreme technology to defeat the caliphate is impotent as the nimbleness of jihad proved to be more of an asset than the West’s supreme technological power. The caliphate attracts more followers exponentially, leaving it as the world’s lone remaining superpower with the strength of 1.5 billion Muslims. Borderless and asymmetrical as hell. DONE.

Today is Thursday. The last one in September. The autumn leaves are as beautiful as they ever were this time of year, except for the light, consistent layer of soft ash that floats down on them periodically throughout the day. The ash that comes from the incinerator just down the street. Thursdays are their biggest production day. Wednesdays are drop-off days for that week’s collection activity, so Thursday is when most of the burning happens. Hence, more ash. I escaped the incinerator by pledging my life to Islam. A coward I am. Those who are brave, the collected ones – all the infidels – Christians, homosexuals, atheists and especially the Jews, they get the fire. Some days I wish I chose to be with them.
