Fresno frenzy: Muhammad shouts ‘Allahu akbar,’ kills 4

(WND) — By Bob Unruh

Police in Fresno say a black suspect identified as Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, has been taken into custody for allegedly shooting and killing four people after shouting “Allahu akbar” and declaring a hatred of “white people.”

Muhammad had been wanted in connection with the shooting death of a security guard nearby last Thursday, according to police chief Jerry Dyer.

On Tuesday, gunfire erupted at about 10:45 a.m. in Fresno. Within seconds a second shooting was reported, then a third and fourth.

Police reported the suspect allegedly fired at least 16 shots at four different locations in only a minute.

Fox News reported Dyer said Muhammad expressed hatred of white people and the government, but the police chief also said it wasn’t clear if the shootings were terror-related.

“Certainly by the statement that was made it could give that indication, however, there was no statement made on Thursday night when he shot the security guard and killed him. There was no comments or no statements made at that time, so I am not certain why he said what he said today,” the chief said.

Dyer said that as the suspect was taken into custody he yelled out “Allahu akbar.”

Police recounted the sequence of events. A PG&E truck drove into police headquarters and the driver reported his passenger had been shot by a gunman who had approached them. Then, Dyer said, the gunman walked over to a resident and opened fire but missed.

Encountering another man, the gunman fired and killed him. Dyer said he then headed toward Catholic Charities in the 100 block of North Fulton Street and opened fire on a man in the parking lot, striking and killing him.

Muhammad then was taken into custody.

Police said all of the victims Tuesday were white men.

Terrorist ringleader who rammed a truck into shoppers in Stockholm killing at least five people is ON THE LOOSE after fleeing chaotic scene during dramatic shootout

(DAILY MAIL) — A terrorist ringleader who rammed a truck into shoppers in Stockholm killing at least five people is on the run after fleeing the scene following a chaotic shootout.

The hijacked vehicle crashed into a packed shopping center and burst into flames.

Three men jumped out from the lorry and opened fire before trying to stab pedestrians, witnesses said.

Two men were tackled to the ground and arrested – but a third suspect is on the loose, immediately making him Europe’s most wanted man.

Police have released CCTV of the man wearing a green jacket, white shoes and a grey hoodie and have shut down Stockholm’s Central Station and tube network amid fears he is hiding underground.

Officers said the vehicle crashed into a group of people on the street outside a shopping center in Klarabergsgatan after racing down six streets at about 3pm local time.

Hundreds of shoppers were seen fleeing for their lives after the articulated lorry rammed into the corner of the building.

Horrifying images of the aftermath show blood smeared on the roads and bodies covered by blankets. Dozens more have been injured, some critically.

Stockholm Police said they are questioning two people in relation to the attack, but are yet to confirm if they are suspects.

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.

Geert Wilders: Islam is not a religion, it’s a totalitarian ideology

(BREITBART) — by Donna Rachel Edmunds

Islam is a totalitarian ideology, not a religion, and therefore a Dutch constitutional commitment to freedom of religion shouldn’t apply to it, Geert Wilders has said.

In a wide-ranging interview recorded in January and broadcast at the weekend, the populist politician and leader of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV) said that although Islam has many of the trappings of religion, it shares more in common with totalitarian ideologies such as communism and fascism and should be treated as such.

“Not only is the Quran more full of anti-Semitism than Mein Kampf – another terrible book – ever was, but one token of proof of totalitarianism is that you are not allowed to leave. That’s the proof of totalitarianism,” he said.

“Islam as an ideology does not allow freedom. Look at almost all the countries in the world where Islam is dominant – you see a total lack of civil society, of rule of law, of freedom for journalists, women, Christians, or even somebody who wants to leave Islam, an apostate.

“You are allowed to leave Christianity or Judaism and become an atheist or the follower of another religion; you are not allowed to leave fascism, you are not allowed to leave Communism. And still today in Holland, in Germany, in the Arab world, the penalty is death if you want to leave Islam.

“That kind of thinking, that kind of violence within an ideology is something that we should not import.”

Conceding that his view was a minority view, and that the Netherlands’ constitution was unlikely to change should his party be victorious in upcoming elections, he clarified that his objection was to Islam as a body of ideas, not to Muslim people.

Islamic State targeting Spanish coastal resort towns

(BREITBART) — by Chris Tomlinson

The Spanish government has released a new report claiming members of Islamic State could be targeting coastal resort towns to carry out large-scale massacres of tourists.

The coastal resort towns of Spain are popular with British, German, and other tourists across Europe and may be under threat according to the Spanish government. The government’s National Security report states Islamic State has increased its recruiting efforts in Spain and has started publishing more propaganda in Spanish leading to the increased warning over possible future attacks, De Telegraaf reports.

The report highlights several factors including cyber security and claim that the terror group will likely launch more cyber attacks in the near future that would target critical infrastructure in the country. In 2016, there were 21,000 incidents of cyber attacks – up 15 per cent from 2015. Of those around 3.6 per cent were considered to be serious security threats.

The terror group is also said to have launched a campaign last summer to procure more Spanish translators to help spread their jihadist propaganda on social media. The increase in Spanish propaganda “implies an increase of the risk of its influence on the radicals installed in our country,” the report notes.

While no specific geographical targets have been named by the terror group, the report notes an attack would put the civil aviation sector at risk due to the possible effect on the global economy.

Spain has maintained a high alert status across the entire country and is presently at threat level 4. This means authorities believe there is a potential attack risk, though no official or specific plans have been discovered.

In 2016, the government carried out 36 police operations which led to the arrest of 69 people who are alleged to have connections to terrorist groups.

How to bring an end to Islam

PEOPLE WHO ARE TERRIFIED BY THE RELENTLESS advance of Islam should take comfort in the fact that no one in Athens today believes that Zeus resides on Mount Olympus or that no one in Rome still worships at the temple of Jupiter.

These were myths that bound Greek and Roman civilizations together, but they were ultimately discarded when people began to see they were nothing more than fabulous stories.

Why this should be comforting to people today is the fact that Islam is based entirely on a myth, one whose demise is long overdue. This is the myth that God talked to Muhammad, that he was God’s “messenger.” Everything Muslims believe and everything they do is derived from that primary, bedrock myth.

Given that Islam aspires eventually to take over the entire world and that it is making rapid progress in infiltrating and undermining the West, isn’t it time to go after the myth that sustains it? To destroy the myth about Muhammad is to destroy what he created. Read more »

Hundreds of Yemeni Muslims pray in New York streets after closing grocery stores in protest at Trump’s travel ban

(EXPRESS) — MORE than one thousand Yemeni American store owners have closed their businesses today and traveled to Brooklyn Borough Hall to pray, rally and support those affected by President Trump’s controversial travel ban.

In what is being described as the ‘Bodega Strike’, thousands of Yemeni immigrants are demonstrating against Trump’s far-reaching US entry ban.

The Spanish word ‘Bodega’ is literally translated as ‘wine shop’ and is New York slang for convenience stores, and organizers of the strike claim there around around 6,000 Yemeni-owned Bodegas across the city.

The closures started at midday (5.00pm GMT) and will continue for eight hours.

A Facebook page set up for the strike states: “This shutdown of grocery stores and bodegas will be a public show of the vital role these grocers and their families play in New York’s economic and social fabric.

“During this period, grocery store owners will spend time with their families and loved ones to support each other; many of these families have been directly affected by the ban.”

90 Muslims surround, attack Uganda church during services and beat dozens of Christians, rape 15 women and kidnap the pastor and nobody knows where he is now

(SHOEBAT) — Christianity has been spreading rapidly among the Muslim communities in Uganda. Some of the Muslims have been very upset about this and have been engaging in aggressive attacks against Christians. In a recent incident, Muslims surrounded a church during services. After blocking the people from leaving, they raided the church, beat up the worshippers, raped 15 women, kidnapped the pastor and now nobody knows where he is:

A pastor in eastern Uganda and eight other Christians are missing two weeks after a Muslim mob attacked a church prayer meeting, locked the congregation in, beat several members and raped 15 women, sources said.

The approximately 90 Muslims broke into the evening prayer meeting of Katira Church of Uganda, in Katira village, Budaka District at about 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 15 and beat them with clubs and sticks, area sources said. Previously Muslims had only thrown stones at the roof of the church building to disrupt church services of the 500-member congregation, villagers said.

At the evening service, about 80 members were present, and among those who escaped before the doors were locked was a Christian who heard one of the assailants shout, “Away with the pastor who is converting our Muslims to Christianity,” a church leader said.

Pastor Moses Mutasa had been outside questioning some visitors unknown to the church when several others arrived shouting, “Away with the pastor,” and he fled, said the Rev. Musa Mukenye, who oversees several churches in the district’s Iki-iki County.

“We do not know what has happened to our pastor, Moses Mutasa,” Pastor Mukenye told a meeting of local officials, police and other security officers. “He might have been killed or has been kept hostage.”

The assailants locked about half of those in attendance inside the building, beat the men and tied them up while they raped women, said a church elder stationed outside the building who escaped. About 50 men and 30 women had attended the prayer meeting, and most of those locked inside were women, sources said.

Muslim assailants positioned outside the church building also beat men and raped women as they tried to escape, a church elder said.

“Women’s clothing was found inside and outside the church building,” he said.

The abused women received treatment at a clinic in Katira.

Police arrived about two hours after the assault began, sources said. Several church members were also injured as they were trampled in the rush to get out of the building. Much church property was damaged, especially chairs.

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.
