One of the suspects is dead but another is alive and an arrest warrant has been issued.

The attack, which has been claimed by ISIS, came when gunmen opened fire at a stationary police car at traffic lights, according to the French policing union.

Former radical Islamist says jihadists are sending students to top colleges in America

(THE CHRISTIAN POST) — Former radical Muslim Isik Abla revealed that there are different types of Jihad in Islam and warned that the group is sending students to America to infiltrate the top universities with its agenda.

Raised in a devout Muslim home, Abla, who is now an international Christian evangelist, said she faced a lot of abuse as a child that followed her into her adult life. And during her first marriage, she found herself a part of a division of Jihad.

“There’s educational Jihad, there’s population Jihad, there’s media Jihad, economical Jihad,” Abla told The Christian Post at the Proclaim 17, NRB International Christian Media Convention in Orlando last week, noting that there are a total of eight types of Jihad. “We are seeing these … types of Jihad integrated in the Western world today.”

Abla said the Western world’s perception of Islam is very different from what Muslims in the Middle East believe a “good” Muslim is.

“When I was a fanatical Muslim I believed in a physical Jihad,” she said. “First and foremost you’ve got to believe if you are a true Muslim and if you are studying the Quran you need to know that physical Jihad is necessary because there’s nothing but killing as told in the Quran.”

Abla revealed that although most people think jihadists only kill, that is not the case because she was part of a different kind of Jihad.

“I was a part of a different kind of Jihad. It was an educational Jihad through my first Muslim husband because his family was supporting the Jihad,” the Turkish native explained.

“Educational Jihad pays the tuition of the students to send them to high prestigious colleges and universities in the Western world. They pay their Harvard education, they pay Princeton, they pay Yale. So we were shoveling money to this kind of educational Jihad so those people could be in high places in power to dictate what needs to happen in the Western world [and] to Islamize the Western world. This is an ideology type of Islam and I was part of that.”

Geert Wilders recommends Islam be re-categorized as political, not religious

(VDARE) — Dutch politician and freedom fighter Geert Wilders has an unusual but eminently sensible idea, namely that we westerners should reclassify Islam as a totalitarian political system rather than a religion. Treating violent Islam like a normal religion certainly misunderstands the ultimate purpose of the jihad movement, that of world conquest where the entire planet would be run according to repressive misogynous sharia law.

When the jihadists say a world caliphate is their aim, they are serious and dedicated to that goal. Hijrah should be a word more in common usage: it means jihad conquest accomplished through immigration, and the current situation of open borders into and within Europe is absolutely deadly.

The Koran does have over 100 verses that promote violence as a way to advance the belief: e.g. (Quran 4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

Back to Geert Wilders, he recently sat down with Ezra Levant of Rebel Media for a half-hour chat about various subjects concerning politics and civilization. VDARE transcribed the section about re-imagining Islam which seems particularly important now, when western societies are jumping through hoops to treat Muslims like Methodists.

EZRA LEVANT: (19:40) All across the West, there’s a belief in freedom of religion. Is Islam more than just a religion?

GEERT WILDERS: Islam is NOT a religion. I know it sounds crazy, and I know I don’t get a lot of support for that idea, but I strongly believe that Islam might be dressed up as a religion: it has a holy book, it has a temple, it looks like a religion, but it’s more an ideology and a totalitarian ideology than a religion. You cannot compare it with Christianity and Judaism, and you should compare it with other totalitarian ideologies like communism or fascism. I always use one example to prove it — there are many more that — like in communism or fascism, the penalty is death if you want to leave it. I mean, you cannot leave Islam: if you are an apostate, if you are a renegade, the penalty is death, and even today in our societies, let alone in the Islamic societies, it is enacted upon, you know people ARE killed for that reason, and you can leave Christianity, you can leave Judaism.

So and the other point is that Islam wants to rule the world — as you know Islam means to subjugate, wants to rule and dominate and subjugate, not only the person’s life but also a whole society. The rule of God, the rule of allah, the rule of the Quran and the Hadith is the rule of the society. I’m not talking about all Muslims, I’m talking about the ideology, and the idea of ideology cannot integrate and assimilate in a society, it wants to dominate it and it wants to subjugate with violence.

The Quran is full of more violence and anti-semitism than Mein Kampf, for instance. People and academics have proved that, so our biggest mistake is, once again, the false equality that we say that Islam is a religion, so they have the freedom of religion. And I believe it’s not religion; it should not be treated as a religion, and the constitutional freedoms of religion do not apply to an ideology. We would not allow in Holland Nazi schools for instance — it’s another totalitarian ideology. Why do we have Islamic schools? Where young children at five, six, seven, eight years old that we want to integrate, get a job, get Dutch friends, participate fully and equally in the Dutch society are being caught up with the Quran and ideology of hate and thought . . .

We should stand up and be tolerant to the people or ideologies that are tolerant to us.

ISIS: “Holy war is an integral part of Islam”

(COUNTER JIHAD) —

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has released a video response to the terrorist attacks in Brussels. The attacks were carried out in ISIS’s name by an independent network of Muslim terrorists. The video both endorsed their action, and repeated ISIS’s frequent call for more of what the ISIS leader calls “volcanoes of jihad.”

ISIS’s video statement reminded Muslims of the duty of jihad. “Every Muslim who is well aware of the history of Islam, knows that the holy war against infidels is an integral part of Islam,” according to the video.

They’ve got a point.

The word jihad occurs in the Koran in 164 separate verses. Jihad as war is set apart from the tribal warfare common to Mohammed’s lifetime, and sanctified as a special and divinely-blessed activity. It is both a duty and an opportunity to gain in divine favor, and to enrich one’s self through the seizing of the goods of non-Muslims who do not yet submit to Islam.

Islam’s greatest philosophers endorsed this position. Avicenna, the Persian philosopher frequently cited by Muslims, Jews, and Christians alike, wrote of jihad in this way. Jihad was in a class of beneficial acts, he said, that were good not only for the soul but for “worldly benefits,” because you got to plunder the enemy. (This is in his Metaphysics of the Healing, Book Ten, Chapter Three, if you are following along at home.) He went on to write that, “as for enemies and those who oppose the law, [the legislator] must decree waging war against them and destroying them — after calling on them to accept the truth — and [decree] that their property and women must be declared free for the spoil.” (That’s in Book Ten, Chapter Five.)

Likewise, in Reliance of the Traveler: The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law, Ahamd ibn Naqib al-Misri states that “Jihad means to wage war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion.”

This has been a consistent feature of the writings of the finest minds in Islam for a thousand years, in other words. They are the ones behind Islamic reformer Sultan Shaheen’s remarks that “For hundreds of years now, major Muslim theologians have been engaged in creating a coherent theology of intolerance and violence in order to expand the Islamic reach.” He clarified, “Luminaries of Islam have established a theology which primarily says that Islam must conquer the world.”

That’s all ISIS is saying. When are we going to be honest about the depth of the problem?

Global terrorism soars with number of attacks rising 25% every year – and ISIS are responsible for a third

(UK MIRROR) — Global terrorism is soaring with the number of attacks increasingly rapidly by more than 25% every year.

Islamic State fighters were responsible for more than a third of the world’s 24,202 deaths from terrorism last year.

In 2015 there 18,987 terror attacks in the world, with terrorism being defined as violence committed by “armed non-state groups and individuals”.

The feared terror group ISIS was behind just 18% of all of last year’s recorded attacks worldwide but remains the priority for most western security forces.

Research shows the group is the most effective at killing sworn enemies as in the years 2015 and 2016 its fighters launched 4,236 attacks resulting in the deaths of 10,807 civilians or other non- militants, such as soldiers.

And the latest figures suggest ISIS killings outside the Middle East are on the rise – as figures for non-Middle East ISIS attacks in 2015 rose from eight per cent to sixteen per cent the following year.

These figures reflect the number of deaths from ISIS-affiliated attacks across Europe in the past two years.

Trump condemns Berlin attack, says things ‘only getting worse’

(REUTERS) — U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Monday condemned an attack at a Christmas market in Berlin that killed nine people and injured dozens more, linking the attack to “Islamist terrorists” before German police officials had said who was responsible.

Trump, in a statement, said “ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad,” using an acronym for Islamic State.

On Twitter, he said the attack, along with others in Turkey and Switzerland, showed “it is only getting worse. The civilized world must change thinking!”

Tips for Trump on terrorism

(FRONT PAGE MAGAZINE) — The amazing 2016 election is in the books and, despite countless prophecies to the contrary, Donald J. Trump will be the new commander-in-chief of U.S. Armed Forces, the most powerful man in the world. That is an ideal position to take long overdue actions on the terrorist front. As a brief review confirms, there is no place like home to begin.

On November 5, 2009, at Ford Hood, Texas, U.S. soldiers were getting their final medical checkups before deploying to Afghanistan. Major Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist and self-described “Soldier of Allah,” began gunning down the soldiers, yelling “Allahu akbar” as he did so. His victims, all unarmed, included Francheska Velez, a 21-year-old private from Chicago who pleaded for the life of her unborn child.

The Muslim major killed two other women that day along with 10 men, more than twice as many victims as the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. This was the deadly attack that the current commander-in-chief called “workplace violence,” exempting Hasan from “gun violence,” one of the current president’s favorite themes.

Hasan also wounded 33 others including Sergeant Alonzo Lunsford, who played dead then fled the building. Major Hasan chased down Lunsford, an African-American, and shot him seven times, including one bullet in the back. Lunsford later complained that Hasan got better treatment than his victims, which was true. One victim said that Major Nidal Hasan did not deserve to live, and that is also true.

To serve the interest of justice, at the first opportunity President Trump should have this Islamic terrorist mass murderer executed. The president should also remove from their positions those intelligence officers who knew about Hasan’s murderous plans and chose to do nothing.

On September 11, 2012, the current president did nothing as terrorists killed four Americans in Benghazi, including ambassador Chris Stevens. The president and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton essentially parroted jihadist propaganda and blamed an internet video. President Trump should take a different and more activist approach.

Every year, he should use the 9/11 anniversary to send a message by busting up some terrorist enterprise and taking down as many terrorists as possible. Perhaps this could take the form of a special-forces raid such as the one that took out Osama bin Laden. After all, it’s a target-rich environment all around the world.

Maybe President Trump could change up the day to maintain the element of surprise. In any case, he should keep his campaign promise to “bomb the shit out of ISIS,” also known as the Islamic State. Iran is also an Islamic terrorist state, and of course President Trump needs to shred the Iran nuclear deal on day one. He also needs to fulfill his promise to halt the Syrian refugee program.

How terrorism has changed everyday life in Paris

(YAHOO) — One year ago today, on the evening of 13th November 2015, many of us stopped what we were doing as terrifying push notifications lit up our phones. We left dinner early, abandoned the pub, called loved ones and texted anyone we knew who might be in danger.

A series of seven coordinated terrorist attacks were taking place in Paris – in a concert hall, a major stadium, restaurants and bars – which left 130 people dead and hundreds wounded, around 20 of whom remain in hospital today with horrific, life-changing injuries. A further 600 victims are still receiving out-patient treatment, while 2,000 others are going through some form of trauma counseling.

The attacks, for which militant terrorists Islamic State claimed responsibility, were viewed as a direct assault on the Western way of life. They targeted Paris, what they called “the capital of abomination and perversion”, on purpose and we were aghast at how close to home it all felt. The victims looked just like us; they were carefree, from different ethnic and social backgrounds, many were young, and they were enjoying themselves on a Friday night.

What happened that night changed many people’s lives irreparably. Relationships, dreams and whole families were shattered, and it’s these people who should be at the forefront of our minds as we take a moment today to reflect on what happened this time last year.

But the impact of the attacks was felt city-wide and many Parisians and tourists remain gripped by a fear that something similar could happen again. So what effect did those horrific events have on the capital of the most-visited country in the world, the network of businesses that make up its economy, and the daily lives of the Parisian people?

France closes 4 more mosques for promoting ‘radical ideology’

(CREEPIING SHARIA) — PARIS (AP) — France’s interior minister has ordered the closure of four mosques that allegedly espoused a ‘radical ideology,’ the latest such shutdowns among dozens since the Nov. 13 Paris attacks nearly a year ago.

A state of emergency in France allows for the closing of places of worship where the preaching risks provoking hate, violence or acts of terrorism.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve ordered the mosques in the Paris region closed on Wednesday. A ministry statement did not name the mosques, located east, west and north of the city.

“Under cover of religion, these places held meetings that in reality were aimed at promoting a radical ideology,” the statement said.

Dozens of mosques where radicalism allegedly thrived have been closed and non-citizens, including imams, expelled since the attacks that killed 130 people.

Austria: One-third of Muslim youth supports violent Jihad against the West, Viennese study reveals

(LEGAL INSURRECTION) — “Anti-Semitic, homophobic and sympathizing with Jihad.” This is how a leading Austrian newspaper summed up the latest study looking into the attitudes of young Muslims living in the city of Vienna. The study commissioned by the city reveals that nearly one-third of the Muslim youth living in the Austrian capital hold radical Islamic views and support armed Jihad against the West.

The leftist coalition running the city attacked the findings of the study that yet again reveal the clutching hold of Islamism over Europe’s migrant Muslim population. The study also exposes the failure of Multiculturalism, a policy pursued for decades by Social Democrats and ecological Green Party, who run the Austrian capital.

The study also highlights Europe’s lingering Anti-Semitism. 33 percent of all young Viennese respondents held negative opinion of Jews — among Muslim respondents that number was 47 percent. Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung reports:

The finding of a study on identity and radicalization amongst Viennese youth commissioned by the city of Vienna are alarming: 27 percent of Muslim participants reject the West and place their religion above Austrian laws. They also view Jews and homosexuals negatively. (…)

The main focus of the study was threat of radicalization amongst teenage Muslims. The extremists are recruiting supporters; be it on the internet, in the gyms or on the streets. (…) 27 percent of respondents sympathize with Jihadism, support violence and are anti-Western. [Author’s translation]

Vienna Socialist (SPÖ) City Councilwoman Sandra Frauenberger downplayed the findings saying, “Young people talk about things that they don’t fully understand.” She also rejected the idea that these young Muslims could pose a threat to Austrian society, saying that it was these ‘vulnerable’ Muslims who needed state protection. “We have to protect them.”

“Multiculturalism is finally dead,” declared the Austrian right-wing Freedom Party (FPÖ) reacting to the study. Maximilian Krauss of the Freedom Party called for the removal of Councilwoman Frauenberger, saying, “Instead of somehow integrating the second generation, we are partially raising a new generation of fanatical Jihadi.”

The study once again shows that other European metropoles too are fast catching up with Paris, Brussels and Stockholm. The rise in Muslim populations owing to higher birth-rates and unrestricted migration goes hand in hand with radicalization of European inner cities.
