The Muslim Brotherhood’s Conquest of Europe

It is not just Europe than is being conquered by the International Muslim Brotherhood, the U.S. has been infiltrated at the local, state and federal government levels via their proxy groups, such as C.A.I.R. There are many Muslim Brotherhood affiliated operatives in the Pentagon, Homeland Security and the State Department.

Since its founding in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood (Hizb al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun) has profoundly influenced the political life of the Middle East. Its motto is telling: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”[1]

While the Brotherhood’s radical ideas have shaped the beliefs of generations of Islamists, over the past two decades, it has lost some of its power and appeal in the Middle East, crushed by harsh repression from local regimes and snubbed by the younger generations of Islamists who often prefer more radical organizations.

But the Middle East is only one part of the Muslim world. Europe has become an incubator for Islamist thought and political development. Since the early 1960s, Muslim Brotherhood members and sympathizers have moved to Europe and slowly but steadily established a wide and well-organized network of mosques, charities, and Islamic organizations. Unlike the larger Islamic community, the Muslim Brotherhood’s ultimate goal may not be simply “to help Muslims be the best citizens they can be,” but rather to extend Islamic law throughout Europe and the United States.[2]

Four decades of teaching and cultivation have paid off. The student refugees who migrated from the Middle East forty years ago and their descendants now lead organizations that represent the local Muslim communities in their engagement with Europe’s political elite. Funded by generous contributors from the Persian Gulf, they preside over a centralized network that spans nearly every European country.

These organizations represent themselves as mainstream, even as they continue to embrace the Brotherhood’s radical views and maintain links to terrorists. With moderate rhetoric and well-spoken German, Dutch, and French, they have gained acceptance among European governments and media alike. Politicians across the political spectrum rush to engage them whenever an issue involving Muslims arises or, more parochially, when they seek the vote of the burgeoning Muslim community.

Netanyahu Demands International Public Condemnation for Israeli Couple’s Murder

by IPT News • Oct 2, 2015 at 2:49 pm

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday called on the international community to condemn the Palestinian leadership’s praise for the terrorists who murder Israeli civilians, reports the Jerusalem Post.

“Fanaticism, zealotry is there…When we hear incitement and praise for terrorists from supposed peace partners, we say, ‘Cut it out’,” said Netanyahu in a meeting with Secretary of State John Kerry.

A Fatah affiliated cell claimed responsibility for opening fire on Eitam and Na’ama Henkin’s car – an Israeli couple in their 30s – while they were driving home with four of their children. The children – ranging in age from four months to nine years old – witnessed the murder of their parents but were not injured.

“The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian National Liberation Movement Fatah, accepted responsibility for the Itamar operation (the murder of Eitam and Na’ama Henkin), carried out against settlers, leading to their deaths,” posted Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul on his official Facebook page, reports Palestinian Media Watch.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas did not mention the attack, let alone condemn it, during an appearance Friday evening. Several Palestinian factions, including Hamas, praised the attack as heroic.

This attack comes amidst increased Palestinian violent incitement against Jews and growing hostilities in Jerusalem.

“The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours… and they have no right to defile it with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem… We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah,” Palestinian Authority (PA) President Abbas said in a speech, segments of which were aired on official PA TV and posted on his website.

Netanyahu contrasted the silence from Palestinian officials to the Henkins’ murder.

Hidden Wounds of War: How One Florida Veteran’s Mom Has Made a Difference

September 23, 2015/in Commentary, Healthcare, Policy, Politics, Social Issues /by Ruth Roman

Many Americans have witnessed the obvious wounds of war, as our military heroes return home missing limbs, handicapped and by IED’s, roadside bombs, and combat injuries from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, however, there are just as many ‘hidden wounds’ that go unnoticed and are under reported in the news. PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder, and TBI, traumatic brain injury, has contributed to increasing suicides from returning Vets. Military suicides nearly doubled from 2001-2011, with the spike being attributed to primarily the Army, the largest service branch. In addition, traumatic brain injury diagnoses have tripled since the beginning of the wars. Surviving family members, who try to piece their lives back together, have raised many questions about the medications administered by the Veterans Administration, treatment by the physicians handling the overload of veteran’s cases and prevention of future suicides of our servicemen and women.

One such case is that of LCPL Janos V. Lutz, who conducted tours of duty in both Iraq and Afghanistan and was just 24 years old when he took his life. He was diagnosed with PTSD, TBI and had an injured back when he fell into an irrigation ditch during a combat mission, in addition to losing 14 of his combat brothers in one summer during one of his tours of duty. His Mother, Janine, related to me in our interview, that ‘the signs were there;’ but I didn’t know it then; we still lost our son. A proud Mother, she pointed to pictures on her wall of happier days, childhood pictures of her son boating and enjoying his life; a life that had so much to offer that was cut short prematurely.

Iranian Defense Minister: ‘We Will Always Provide Arms to the Resistance Against U.S. and Israel

In a recent TV interview, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said: “I officially declare that under no circumstances will we refrain from providing material and moral support to Hizbullah, or to any group of the resistance to the U.S. and Israel.” Dehghan further said that Iran would continue to consider the U.S. to be the “Great Satan” even after the nuclear deal. The interview, held in Farsi, with Arabic voice-over, aired on Mayadeen TV on September 1, 2015. To view the MEMRI TV video-clip, click here.

Following are excerpts:

“The Iranian Regime Continues To View The U.S. As The Great Satan”
Interviewer: “Will the U.S. remain “the Great Satan” even after the nuclear agreement, and for how long?”

Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan: “Ayatollah Khomeini called the U.S. the ‘Great Satan,’ and there is nothing strange about it. This name was given on the basis of the principles of the holy Quran, which clearly points to Satanic characteristics, conduct, and goals. Since the end of World War II, the U.S. has dedicated itself to a policy of instigating strife, discord, and wars between the world’s nations. They have occupied countries and carried out conspiracies all over. They have meddled in the affairs of others, and have toppled independent regimes. All these policies have been solely to serve American interests.

“The U.S. interfered in Iran in the middle of the 20th century, and brought down the democratically elected government of Mosaddegh. It did not hesitate to perpetrate the most abominable crimes against the Vietnamese and Korean peoples, as well as many other countries, because they refused to serve as its lackeys. When the U.S. administrations insist on a policy of arrogance towards others, it is only natural that the Iranian regime continues to view the U.S. as the ‘Great Satan.’”

Trump Just Hit Obama Where It Hurts in 15 Seconds

Donald Trump posted a new video on Instagram Wednesday hitting the Obama administration over the Iranian nuclear deal, which the presidential candidate describes as “terrible.”

The video begins with audio from President Obama announcing the deal as: “A powerful display of American leadership and diplomacy shows what we can accomplish when we lead from a position of strength. Iran could move closer to a nuclear bomb.” (See video below).

Homeland Security; Highest Threat Since 9/11

The Islamist terror threat to the U.S. is “surging” and the situation is getting “steadily worse,” concludes a new report by the House Homeland Security Committee.

Terror Threat Snapshot, prepared by the Majority staff, said the increased threat is largely due to radicalization and recruitment by the Islamic State.

Key takeaways about the U.S. from the report include:

To date in 2015, there have been more U.S.-based jihadist terror cases than in any (full) year since 9/11

Since early 2014, the majority of Islamist terror plots on U.S. soil have featured plans to kill police or U.S. soldiers

Globally, the Islamic State is “fueling the Islamist terror wildfire—and at unprecedented speed.” As of the end of last month, the Islamist terror group “has inspired or directed 55 terrorist plots/attacks against Western targets, including 14 in the United States. There have been nearly twice as many ISIS-linked terror plots against the West this year (35) as there were in all of 2014 (20).”

The summary report also states the United States and its coalition partners “have largely failed to rollback the ISIS terror safe haven.” As Clarion Project reported last May, the actual numbers of Islamic State fighters being killed by coalition airstrikes have been more than offset by new recruits – mostly foreigners recruited online. The Homeland Security Committee report sites recent information from the intelligence community which concluded that the Islamic State is “no weaker” than it was before the strikes and “can still muster 20-30,000 foot soldiers.”

698,000 Americans Lost Their Jobs In August; Why This is Important

Tyler Durden on 09/07/2015 15:14 -0400

After the Fed admitted over a year ago that the US unemployment rate (which in 2012 was supposed to be a rate hike “threshold” once it hit 6.5% and is now at 5.1%) has become irrelevant in a country where a record 94 million people have left the labor force, and with the Fed poised to hike rates even though US hourly wages have not only not increased for the past 7 years, but for the vast majority of the labor force continue to decline, some have asked – is there any labor-related chart that matters any more?

The answer: a resounding yes, only it is none of the conventional charts that algos and sometimes humans look at.

The one chart that matters more than ever, has little to nothing to do with the Fed’s monetary policy, but everything to do with the November 2016 presidential elections in which the topic of immigration, both legal and illegal, is shaping up to be the most rancorous, contentious and divisive.

The chart is the following, showing the cumulative addition of foreign-born and native-born workers added to US payrolls according to the BLS since December 2007, i.e., since the start of the recession/Second Great Depression.
