Damnable Sons and Daughters of Mohammed

More Dead Americans Are Offensive

By Justin O. Smith

12/5/2015 1:45 PM

They [Muslims] … act like normal citizens, until they unleash bloodbath upon bloodbath …” – Justin O Smith

One more horrific and heinous Islamic terror attack, in a long list of many others, was perpetrated against America by Chicago born Syed Farook and Pakistan born Tashfeen Malik, on December 2nd 2015 at approximately 11:00 am PT. They opened fire on a Christmas party inside the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, CA using modified variants of .223 AR-15s, and eighty-five rounds later, fourteen decent Americans — mothers, fathers, sons and daughters — lay murdered, with 21 more wounded, as many others placed desperate cellphone calls for help and thought these were their last moments of life.

The discovery of three bombs in the IRC, that failed to explode, slowed the search for the terrorists, who were initially thought to still be in the building. Five hours later, the terrorists were found and killed near their home in Redlands in a firefight, as they fired 76 rounds and the police responded with 380 rounds; in the aftermath, 2500 more rounds of ammunition and twelve more bombs wired for remote detonation, in a manner similar to the Boston bombs, were found in their home.

FBI reports reveal that Malik had passed Homeland Security screening, and she had returned with Farook from his second trip to Saudi Arabia on a K-1 “fiancée” visa and a Pakistan passport. Farook had also made a trip to Pakistan, and he had been in contact with Muslims abroad who are persons of interest to U.S. authorities; he was also in touch with islamofascists in the Los Angeles area.

Imagine the sinking feeling felt by authorities, when they discovered that Malik had pledged her allegiance to the Islamic State and Abu Bakr al Baghdadi on Facebook, as the attack was ongoing. This made many security analysts suggest since, that she was Farook’s trainer, and she had planned from the start to meet someone online, who was willing to bring her to America, for the sole purpose of harming America.

Any logical thinking person didn’t need to hear FBI Director James Comey call this “an act of Islamic-inspired terrorism”, once news reports indicated multiple shooters were in the facility. How many cases has anyone ever witnessed of a disgruntled employee recruiting another person to help them attack a business?

On December 4th, the FBI Director announced on C-SPAN that none of Farook’s contacts “were of such significance that it raised the level of alert at the FBI.” Really? This should keep people awake at night.

Although the FBI refused to name Muzzamil Siddiqi, as one of the islamofascist “jihadists” in contact with Farook, for the New York Times‘ December 3rd story, anyone following the terrorist networks knew Farook and Malik were Islamic terrorists immediately, when Hussam Ayloush, executive director for CAIR-Los Angeles, and Farhan Khan, Farook’s brother-in-law, made a disingenuous televised statement. They condemned the attack and offered “heartfelt condolences to the families and the loved ones of all those killed or injured.” Standing there beside both men and also offering empty words was Muzzamil Siddiqi [IPT], who is a known active supporter of Islamic terror in America and abroad.

Siddiqi is the director of the Islamic Society of Orange County [ISOC] and a former president of the Islamic Society of North America, a Muslim Brotherhood organization. He is also an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing plot, and he released the Muslim Brotherhood memo [CSP], ‘Civilization – Jihadist Process’, to followers in May 1991, that calls for the destruction of Western civilization from within and “sabotaging its miserable house.” [CSP] One of Siddiqi’s close associates was Sheik Omar Rahman, the Blind Sheik, who planned the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; and, one should also note that Adam Gadahn [IPT], former spokesman for Al Qaeda and fellow terrorist, is a product of the ISOC.

Siddiqi wrote in the ‘Pakistan Link’ [Pakistan Link homepage] on October 18th 1996: “We must not forget that Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction.” [IPT Foot Note 19]

Adding insult to injury on December 3rd, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Reverend Welton Gaddy delivered a load of manure in their unbelievably insensitive, disgusting and despicable statements at the Muslim Advocates Annual Dinner, in the wake of the murders of fourteen Americans by Islamic terrorists. Their main concerns were focused on any possible “backlash” from the San Bernardino attack against Muslims and Muslims being “free in America”, when they should have been asking these Muslims what, if anything, they proposed to do in an effort to stop future terror attacks that emanate from the ranks of their damnable brethren — these Sons and Daughters of Mohammed.

Why was Loretta Lynch appeasing this group of Muslims, instead of demanding they take all measures to stop the ever increasing Islamic terror attacks in America?

Why did Rev. Gaddy exclaim, “If Muslims aren’t free in America, no one is”, when fourteen Americans just had their freedom __ their rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” — taken from them?

Muslims are free in America. They just aren’t free to wantonly murder their way across America. Their rights in America end, when they act against the U.S. Constitution and their actions violate the rights of others, endangering and ending the lives of U.S. citizens.

This administration and future administrations must target Muslim communities with deep surveillance, and don’t tell America how offensive and “islamophobic” this will seem to Muslims. The cold hard reality is that Baptists, Catholics and Jews aren’t gunning down people and blowing them up, and frankly, I find Americans killed at the hands of Islamic terrorists offensive.

Maybe it’s time U.S. Muslims felt the consequences — backlash — from their failure or unwillingness to cut out the violent heart of the Islamic ideology. Let’s advocate the deportation of all non-citizen Muslims and refuse to allow any Muslim into America: This will not stop all acts of terror, since Muslim citizens are acting against the nation too, but perhaps it is a start for now.

I am sick of seeing Our Beloved America attacked repeatedly by these islamofascists, with barely a cough coming from the Oval Office. Obama and Attorney General Lynch aren’t protecting us from “enemies foreign and domestic” effectively and forcefully, doing just the bare minimum. Their continued denial of an Islamic terrorism problem in America is only emboldening Muslims, who hate us, and laying the groundwork for a certain devastating and massive terrorist attack, especially in light of recent successes by the Islamic State. Consequently, whether or not our communities exhibit San Bernardino’s same level of training and professionalism, all Americans must help their community stay vigilant and prepare to defend themselves or die, in the face of the next deliberate terrorist attack on our home front, even if it entails carrying one’s personal weapon daily.

Kafir Slaughter is the Norm not Aberration


John R. Houk

© December 5, 2015

Islamic Terrorism. Yup, I wrote Islamic Terrorism.

The butchers of San Bernardino were following their Islamic tenets as handed down by their fake-prophet Mohammed.

When a Muslim or a group of Muslims attack a group of non-Muslims with the intent to hurt, maim, rape women and/or kill people because his/her perfect man – Mohammed – set the example in the Quran and explained in the Hadith and Sira; that is terrorism based on the tenets of Islam.

Here are some excerpts from an Answering Islam essay demonstrating ten reasons Islam is NOT a religion of peace as exposed in the Quran. I’m excerpting some explanatory notes, followed by the ten reasons (read the essay for the expanded explanation for each reason) and I’ll end with some justification explanations of the ten reasons:

… In order to prevent the standard, reflexive “out of context” defense from Muslim apologists, the context of each verse in the Quran is explained either in this article or in the links provided within each of the ten reasons. No verse is taken out of context, and Muslim translations are used.

Verifiable? The readers are invited to look up each verse in the Quran in multiple translations, by visiting the website www.quranbrowser.com and typing in references, like so: 61:10-12. (61 is the chapter or sura, and 10-12 are the verses).

But first we must answer a Muslim strategy. A Muslim missionary or polemicist who believes that Islam is the best religion in the world and who wants it to spread around the globe attempted to refute this top ten list. But attempting to refute such a list is like reviewing a book only from the last chapter. The reviewer has skipped over the hard work of reading all of the chapters. In the same way, the Muslim polemicist or missionary has skipped over the hard work found in the back-up articles and the links. This top ten list is only a summary of many articles and a lot of strenuous labor from the present author and many other authors. The answers to the Muslim’s criticisms are all found in these articles. So his criticism is hollow, and his scholarship is shallow, since he has not done the hard work. He certainly does not understand the Bible. Plus, he whitewashes Islam in his attempted refutation. The back-up articles will show how. Thus, he whitewashes Islam either deliberately or unknowingly, which means he does not know his own religion or he knows it, but covers it up. Whatever the case, the truth about the real Islam must get out.

10. Muhammad nicknames his weapons.

9. Muhammad commands in his Quran that adulterers and adulteresses should receive a hundred lashes.

8. Muhammad in his Quran permits husbands to beat their wives.

7. Muhammad in his Quran commands that the hands of male or female thieves should be cut off.

6. Muhammad assassinates poets and poetesses.

5. Muhammad in his Quran commands death or the cutting off of hands and feet for fighting and corrupting the land.

4. Muhammad aggressively attacks Meccan caravans.

3. Muhammad in his Quran promises sensuous Gardens for martyrs dying in a military holy war.

2. Muhammad unjustly executes around 600 male Jews and enslaves the women and children.

1. Muhammad launches his own Crusades.

What the ten reasons mean for us today

These ten aspects of violence that have burrowed into the hemorrhaging heart of early Islam have eight implications for us today. The first three are theological; the rest are practical.

The theological implications are as follows:

First, as each reason in this article has hinted at and the links explain more thoroughly, Christ never, ever engaged in such violence. For example, he never assassinated opponents, whipped adulterers, cut off the hands of thieves, or launched his own Crusades (what the Medieval Europeans did is not foundational to Christianity). Christ expresses the love of God. Therefore, Christians and all fair-minded persons have the right to question whether the true God would reveal the Quran when it contains such violent verses that conveniently support Muhammad’s violence, whereas the New Testament does not have such violence.

Second, Muslims believe that the New Testament is corrupted, whereas the Quran is inerrant. Even if we assume only for the sake of argument that these claims are true (but they actually are not), then why would reasonable seekers of the truth prefer the “pure” but violence-filled Quran over the “corrupted” but peaceful New Testament?

Before Muhammad is allowed to throw around unsubstantiated charges about alleged New Testament corruption, he and his Quran must pass a down-to-earth test regarding his dubious, violent practices. But he and it fail the test badly, as this article demonstrates, whereas Christ and the New Testament pass with a perfect score. Therefore, if Muhammad is so wrong about down-to-earth matters like whipping adulterers and cutting off the hands of thieves and beating wives, then he is likely wrong about unresearched accusations of New Testament corruption—and factually he is wrong.

Please refer to the articles listed on these pages for more information: [1], [2].

Third, since Muhammad who claims divine guidance is so wrong about practical matters, why should we believe him about theoretical matters like the deity of Christ and the Trinity, both of which he denies? Clearly, he was not divinely guided in practical matters because the true God would not degrade religion by endorsing such gruesome violence six hundred years after Christ came—the historical span is critical. Christ and the New Testament do not have even one example of such violence. Again, if Muhammad first fails the down-to-earth test, then he likely fails the theological or theoretical test—we have no reason to believe him in such high doctrines, especially since he was no theologian and his revelations are now empirically suspect.

The practical implications of the top ten reasons are READ ENTIRETY (Top ten reasons why Islam is NOT the religion of peace: Violence in Muhammad’s life and the Quran; By James M. Arlandson; Answering Islam)

Now let’s look at the reality of the Hadith encouraging Muslims into acts of violence especially toward non-Muslims:

Jihad in the Hadith

The Hadith are the recorded sayings and deeds of the Prophet Muhammad. It is second in authority only to the Qur’an and is often used to clarify things not specified in the Qur’an. The following is what Muhammad had to say about Jihad as recorded in the Hadith.

1) The second best deed is to participate in Jihad (Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25, Narrated Abu Huraira) – Allah’s Apostle was asked, “What is the best deed?” He replied, “To believe in Allah and His Apostle (Muhammad). The questioner then asked, “What is the next in goodness? He replied, “To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah’s Cause.” The questioner again asked, “What is the next (in goodness)?” He replied, “To perform Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca) ‘Mubrur, (which is accepted by Allah and is performed with the intention of seeking Allah’s pleasure only and not to show off and without committing a sin and in accordance with the traditions of the Prophet).”

2) Muhammad said if someone leaves Islam, to kill them (Volume 4, Book 52, Number 260, Narrated Ikrima) – All burnt some people and this news reached IBn ‘Abbas, who said, “Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, ‘Don’t punish anybody with Allah’s Punishment.’ No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, “If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.”

3) Volume 1, Book 2, Number 35, Narrated Abu Huraira ”The Prophet said, The person who participates in holy battles in Allah’s cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and his Apostles, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr). Had I not found it difficult for my followers, then I would not remain behind any saiya going for Jihad and I would have loved to be martyred in Allah’s cause and then made alive, and then martyred and then made alive, and then again martyred in His cause.”

4) Volume 3, Book 46, Number 726 ”Allah’s Apostle said, A pious slave gets a double reward. Abu Huraira added: By Him in Whose Hands my soul is but for Jihad (holy battles), Hajj, and my duty to serve my mother, I would have loved to die as a slave.”

5) Volume 9, Book 93, Number 555 ”Allah’s Apostle said, Allah guarantees (the person who carries out Jihad in His Cause and nothing compelled him to go out but Jihad in His Cause and the belief in His Word) that He will either admit him into Paradise or return him with reward or booty he has earned to his residence from where he went out.” (Jihad in the Quran and Hadith; Contender Ministries)

Just to confront the Muslim apologist that claims there is a Greater Jihad and a Lesser Jihad with the “Lesser” being the violent aggressive edict and the “Greater” being the primary directive of Islam of warring with self to be a better person, here are some excerpts that relates the truth about this deceptive hogwash:

… Next to the Qur’an in importance is the Hadith, which refers to collections of traditions about what Muhammad said, what he taught, and what he did. These collections are also called Sunna or “tradition”; hence the term Sunni Muslims, or “traditional” Muslims. …

Muslims naturally felt a need to preserve traditions about the Prophet from the time of the earliest witnesses. However, over the years since Muhammad’s death some of these traditions became embellished and others were fabricated. In the ninth century a number of Islamic scholars undertook the task of sifting the genuine traditions from the spurious and of gathering the former in written collections. In Sunni Islam six of these collections in particular are considered sahih (“reliable”). These sahih sittah (“reliable collections”) are:

o Sahih Bukhari, compiled by the Imam Muhammad ibn-Ismail al-Bukhari (810-870).

o Sahih Muslim, compiled by Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj al-Qushayri (821-975).

o Sunan Abu Dawud, compiled by Abu Dawud as-Sijistani (d. 888).

o Sunan ibn Majah, compiled by Muhammad ibn Majah (d. 896).

o Sunan At-Tirmidhi, compiled by Abi ‘Eesaa Muhammad At-Tirmidhi (824-893).

o Sunan An-Nasai, compiled by Ahmad ibn Shu’ayb an-Nasai (d. 915).

All these collections of hadith are highly respected in the Sunni tradition, but the first two even more than the others, and so they are given the additional specific designation of sahih. And of those two, Sahih Bukhari is considered the most important and most reliable. Those ahadith occurring in both the Bukhari and Muslim collections have the highest status of all.

Only One Jihad

These compilations of hadith are voluminous, and they have a lot to say about jihad. However, before going to these classic collections, we should begin by looking at one hadith that is very often quoted to demonstrate a nonviolent meaning of jihad:

Upon his return from battle Muhammad said, “We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad (i.e. the struggle against the evil of one’s soul).” (1)

This is very often cited as a proof-text for the “real” meaning of jihad being inward, spiritual struggle. But there are two problems:

1. Even a “lesser” jihad is still jihad and thus a duty and a virtue.

2. Muhammad never made such a statement.

The hadith in which Muhammad is said to speak of “greater” vs. “lesser” jihad is of doubtful authenticity. It does not appear in any of the six collections of the sahih sittah. In fact, a number of scholars maintain that this hadith is a forgery (2). One scholar analyzes this hadith and considers a number of factors, such as chain of transmission and other more reliable, contradictory ahadith (3). …

This seems to leave little doubt as to how Muhammad understood jihad. But let us not make the case on just one example. There are many ahadith on jihad, and they make its meaning quite clear. First and foremost, jihad meant combat on the battlefield, and specifically against non-Muslims.

Jihad as Fighting the Nonbeliever

The following sequence of ahadith will clarify this. Many of these are extremely well attested, occurring multiple times in the most trusted collections, the Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. I will cite some of these multiple attestations just to show the high status of these ahadith.

Reading through the hadith on the subject of jihad, what we do not find is an exclusive emphasis on self-defense or on struggling with one’s desires. Jihad is physical combat, not just for self-defense but for the purpose of spreading Islam, and there is no greater virtue: READ ENTIRETY (Jihad in the Hadith; Peace with Realism – Updated website About Page)

The Sira includes the Sunna which are the sayings of Mohammed:

The easiest way to learn about Islam is to learn about Mohammed. His biography is called the Sira, and this book is a condensation of it.

The Islamic bible—the Trilogy

Islam is defined by the words of Allah in the Koran, and the words and actions of Mohammed, called the Sunna.

The Sunna is found in two collections of texts—the Sira (Mohammed’s life) and the Hadith. The Koran says 91 times that his words and actions are considered to be the divine pattern for humanity.

A hadith, or tradition, is a brief story about what Mohammed did or said. A collection of hadiths is called a Hadith. There are many collections of hadiths, but the most authoritative are those by Bukhari and Abu Muslim, the ones used in this book.

So the Trilogy is the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith. Most people think that the Koran is the bible of Islam, but it is only about 14% of the total textual doctrine. The Trilogy is the foundation and totality of Islam.

The Relative Sizes of the Trilogy Texts

Islam is defined by the words of Allah in the Koran, and the words and actions of Mohammed, the Sunna. (A Taste of Islam – The Life of Mohammed – The Sira; By Bill Warner; Center for the Study of Political Islam; © 2010 CSPI, LLC)

Here is an example of the wickedness of Islam displayed in the Sira courtesy the Australian Islamist Monitor:

And in the sira, endless examples of violence to others in offensive attacks: eg Sirat Rasul’allah by Ibn Ishaq.

Booty is made lawful as a gift from that compassionate allah (p 326-327 –which also notes allah telling Mohammad NOT to take prisoners until he has made slaughter in the earth —ie kill to manifest the religion!!). Page 464-466 records the beheading of ~800 males and one female, the enslavement of females and children and Mohammad taking a female for his enjoyment. This ‘pattern’ is repeated in other acts of slaughter, enslavement and rape eg p 493, p 511. In one attack over 6000 women and children plus animals were taken (p 592-593) with the remnants of the men ‘converting’ to try to retrieve their families!!! Mohammad handed out GIRLS for friends to enjoy (p 593) as sex with tiny girls is allowed in Islamic law eg Hedaya Vol 4 p 106. (see more in Islam’s genocidal slavery – Part A – Mohammad’s example 23-08-09 on site) Of some 48 -67 battles in those last 10 years, Mohammad ‘stayed home’ for some and led 27 yet still claimed 1/5th of the booty! But along with big battles were endless small attacks on others, murders, threats and demands for tribute or else! Simple farming communities were often suddenly attacked by these well armed Islamic ‘heroes.’

**Ibn Ishaq: p 572-3 (sirat rasulallah) “Muhammad is the man, an Apostle of my Lord……. Evil was the state of the B. Qasiy in Wajj…they lost the day …Fortunes change. We came upon them like lions of the thickets. The armies of Allah came openly……. almost flying at them in our rage…. We were as lions of Liya there until we destroyed them and al-Nusur were forced to surrender….. and blood flowed freely. In former days there was no battle like this. We slew B. Hutayt in the dust. ….Those who escaped were choked with terror. A multitude of them were slain. If they are guided to Islam….If they do NOT accept it THEY call for god’s war in which they will have no helper. As war destroyed the B. Sa’d and fate the clan of B. Ghaziya.” (the Muslim view is that those who resist allah/Islam CAUSE wars) (Islam is Conquest by Violence and Fear: Hadith, Sira, laws, comments part 2; By Circe; Australian Islamist Monitor; last updated – 5/9/11 18:47)

So figure it out! Islam is an inherently violent religion even if a majority of Muslims practice a peaceful version of their theopolitical religion. The reality is the Islam that Left Wingers, Multiculturalists and deceived Conservatives call “Moderate” Islam; IS NOT the true Islam of the Quran, Hadith and Sira.

In the light of the San Bernardino Massacre perpetrated by the Islamic terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook and his Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik that went on a kafir killing spree, I became very irritated with the authorities – local, State and Federal – failing to state the obvious that this was an act of Islamic terrorism. Then of course that irritation became stoked when Obama and his Dem-Leftist cadres refused the term Islamic terrorism and followed that colossal public irresponsibility with blaming lax gun control laws for the shooting.

The gun control theme is especially idiotic considering the gun control laws in California are not exactly NRA friendly. Perhaps if

some of the good citizens of San Bernardino were packing, a couple of kafir-hating Muslims might have discovered their Allah deity is closer to an antichrist demon than a ludicrous promise of eternal virgins in Paradise fulfilling the carnal/fleshly desires of unrestrained sex and the taste of wine without becoming intoxicated quicker and with non-Muslim victims. (I’m unsure of any eternal promises for female shahids. Tough luck Tashfeen.)

I’ll culminate my thoughts by sharing the thoughts of Justin Smith I found on his Facebook page. Justin wrote his thoughts before the FBI struggled to admit the San Bernardino Massacre was an act of terrorism; however take note there is still the refusal to call the massacre an act of Islamic terrorism.

Justin Smith Thoughts on San Bernardino Terrorist Attack

By Justin O. Smith

December 3, 2015 11:35am

Facebook Page

In light of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, I wish to reiterate the following:

Well – now. We see another example in Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik of the only “contribution” I’ve seen Islam and Muslims give to America and the world over my entire lifetime — 58 years. Rest assured that this was more islamofascist terrorism, since all the evidence, the planning, the weapons and the explosive devices are indicative of such.

Most Americans, many of our leaders as well, are aware that terrorists infiltrating groups of refugees are only part of the problem. They are not speaking of imaginary space-aliens, when they cognitively and logically reason that the ideological doctrines within Islam, such as the mandated perpetual war between the House of Islam and the House of War (non-Muslims) and the supposed supremacy of Islam, creates the prime motivation for the endemic violence of Islam. Americans understand that the terrorists are found in the ranks of converts like Carlos Bledsoe, second and third generation U.S. Muslims like Anwar al-Awlaki and refugees like the Tsarnaev brothers; and, as such, it certainly does not make any sense to import tens of thousands of more potential terrorists, in the middle of a generational and civilizational war between Islamic and Western principles.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said that we shouldn’t be accepting “any Syrian refugees without complete assurance those we are welcoming intend us no harm”, but when dealing with the agents of Islam, “complete assurance” would be a false assurance. One cannot offer an assurance against Muslims insidiously infiltrating any neighborhood, as they frequent ballgames, movies and restaurants and act like normal citizens, until they unleash bloodbath upon bloodbath, just like the Abdeslam brothers did in France, terrorist bomber Ramzi Yousef did at the World Trade Center in 1993, nineteen terrorists did on 9/11 and Abdulazeez did at the Chattanooga Naval facility.

America’s pathological denial of reality


San Bernardino Massacre

Caroline Glick writes about U.S. government idiocy on failing to label Islamic terrorism especially in the case of the San Bernardino Massacre.

Column One: America’s pathological denial of reality

By CAROLINE B. GLICK

12/03/2015

Jerusalem Post

In America of December 2015, natural conclusions are considered irresponsible, at best.

How much lower will America sink before it regains its senses? Wednesday, two Muslims walked into a Christmas party at a community service center in San Bernardino, California where one worked. They were wearing body armor and video cameras and carrying automatic rifles, pipe bombs and pistols. They opened fire, killed 14, and wounded 17.

The murderers, Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik were killed by police.

Speaking to the Daily News, Farook’s father said his son, “was very religious. He would go to work, come back, go to pray, come back. He’s Muslim.”

Farook’s neighbor told the paper that over the past two years, Farook exchanged his Western dress for Islamic gowns and grew a beard.

These data points lead naturally to the conclusion that Farook and his wife were jihadists who killed in order to kill in the name of Islam.

But in America of December 2015, natural conclusions are considered irresponsible, at best.

In an interview with CNN following the shooting, US President Barack Obama said the massacre demonstrates that the US needs stricter gun laws. As for the motives of the shooters, Obama shrugged. “We don’t yet know the motives of the shooters,” he insisted.

In other words, while ignoring what in all likelihood drove Farooq and his wife to murder innocent people, Obama laid responsibility for the carnage at the feet of his political opponents who reject his demands for stricter limitations on gun ownership.

Here is the place to note that California has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the US.

According to the victims, Farook and his partners were able to reload their weapons and shoot without interruption for several minutes until the police arrived because there was no one to stop them.

Obama wasn’t alone in deflecting attention away from the likely motivations of the murderers.

Wednesday evening, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), held a press conference at the Islamic Center of Orange County. Farook’s brother in law, Farhan Khan was carted out before the cameras to tell the world that he for one had no idea why his brother in law opened fire.

Two other speakers at the event were Hussam Auyloush, CAIR’s regional executive director and Muzammil Siddiqi, the director of the Islamic Society of Orange County.

Auyloush insisted that he had no idea would could have possibly prompted Farook and his wife to murder those gathered at the center. Auyloush raised the prospect that they could have been mentally ill, or perhaps they just didn’t like the victims, or maybe they were garden-variety extremists.

For his part, Siddiqi insisted that Islam had nothing to do with the shooters’ decision to murder innocent people, (how he could be so certain, is unknown).

Siddiqi added that he hopes law enforcement bodies will conduct a full investigation into the “people and motives,” behind the attack.

To a degree, the very fact that Siddiqi had no compunction about stepping in front of the cameras just hours after the attack is proof that the US has lost its way.

If American elites were even semi-competent, Siddiqi would have faded into the shadows, never to emerge again 15 years ago.

Siddiqi is a known jihadist sympathizer. His close ties to jihadists have been a matter of public record since 2000.

In October 2000, Siddiqi spoke at an anti-Israel rally in Lafayette Park in Washington, DC. There he warned the American people that they must abandon their support for Israel lest “the wrath of God” be unleashed against them.

According to a profile of Siddiqi compiled by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, (IPT) in the late 1990s Siddiqi gave a speech extolling jihad and foreseeing Israel’s replacement with an Islamic state.

Among other things, Siddiqi said, “In order to gain the honor, jihad is the path, jihad is the way to receive the honor.”

Siddiqi converted Osama bin Laden’s senior aide, American jihadist Adam Gadahn. Gadahn converted to Islam at the Islamic Center of Orange County in 1995. According to a 2007 New Yorker profile, Siddiqi employed Gadahn at the Center in the years following his conversion. It was during this period that Gadahn was radicalized. He then went to Pakistan and joined al Qaida.

In 1992 Siddiqi hosted a blind sheikh named Omar Abdel Rahman at the Islamic Center. He stood beside Rahman and simultaneously translated his lecture about jihad to the audience of worshipers.

The next year, Rahman masterminded the first jihadist attack on the World Trade Center.

During the 1990s, Siddiqi served as the president of the Islamic Society of North America, a known Muslim Brotherhood front group. In 2007, ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holyland terror financing trial.

Despite all of his connections to jihadists, US authorities insist that Siddiqi is a legitimate voice. In 2007 Stephen Tidwell, then assistant director of the FBI division in Los Angeles upheld Siddiqi as a moderate.

Speaking to the IPT, Tidwell said, “We have a very strong relationship with Dr. Siddiqi.”

Hours before Obama responded to the San Bernadino massacre by lashing out at gun control opponents, Col. Steve Warren, spokesman for US Operation Inherent Resolve – the US campaign against Islamic State – rejected Russian claims that the Turkish government is collaborating with the terror state.

Warren praised the Turks as “great partners to us.”

“We flatly reject any notion that the Turks are somehow working with Islamic State. That is preposterous,” he insisted, adding, “Any thought” the Turkish government would deal or collaborate with Islamic State is “completely untrue.”

Unfortunately, a wealth of evidence indicates that it is Warren’s statement that is preposterous and completely untrue.

For nearly five years, it has been an open secret that Turkey serves as Islamic State’s logistical base. Almost all the foreigners traveling to Syria to join IS transit through Turkey.

For nearly two years, we have known that Turkey is Islamic State’s major arms supplier. And for six months we have known that they are their partners in oil exports.

In an article published this past summer in Middle East Quarterly, Burak Bekdil reported in January 2014, Turkish prosecutors acting independently from the government, dispatched forces to a border province with Syria to intercept a convoy of trucks laden with missiles, rockets and ammunition making its way to Syria. One of the truck drivers testified at the time that he and his colleagues had “carried similar loads several times before.”

The forces charged with seizing the cargo were shocked to discover the trucks were being escorted by Turkish intelligence officers.

According to Bekdil, “all hell broke loose,” after the prosecutors ordered the men arrested and the cargo seized.

The provincial governor swooped in and insisted that the convoy was traveling on direct orders from Turkish leader Recep Tayip Erdogan. Months later, the military took over the case. And today, the men who executed the arrests and cargo seizure are on trial for “international espionage.”

Bekdil reported that two months after the cargo was intercepted, a meeting took place between then foreign minister and current Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, his deputy, Feridun Sinirlioglu, the head of Turkish intelligence, Hakan Fidan and deputy chief of the Turkish general staff, Gen. Yasar Guler.

A recording of the meeting was leaked to social media. In the recording, Fidan is heard saying that “he had successfully sent two thousand trucks into Syria before.”

As to Islamic State oil sales to Turkey, this past May, US special forces executed their first known raid inside Syria. The commandos descended on the home of Islamic State’s financial chief Abu Sayyaf. US forces killed Sayyaf and seized his computers and hard drives.

Sayyaf directed Islamic State’s oil, gas and financial operations.

Last July the Guardian reported that the computer data revealed close, direct dealings between Turkish officials and Islamic State members. According to one senior Western official familiar with the contents of the documents, just from what had been uncovered in the initial study of the material, “the links [between Islamic State and the Turkish government] are already so clear that they could end up having profound policy implications for the relationship between us and Ankara.”

Yet Wednesday, in the face of an overwhelming mountain of evidence, the Americans rejected out-of-hand Russians allegations that Turkey is the main consumer of oil exports from Islamic State.

This past July, two senior Defense Intelligence Agency analysts assigned to US Central Command submitted a formal complaint to the Defense Department’s inspector general. The two claimed that their intelligence reports on Islamic State were doctored and distorted as they made their way up the feeding chain to Obama. Fifty intelligence analysts have stated their agreement with the allegations in the complaint.

The doctored reports systematically rendered portraits of the US campaign against Islamic State as successful and Islamic State as a nearly spent force, along the lines of the narrative presented by Obama and his advisors. According to the analysts, the picture painted by the doctored reports bore little resemblance to their far more negative conclusions.

According to the Daily Beast’s report, intelligence analysts began complaining to their superiors about the distortion of their reports in October 2014. Some of those analysts were urged to retire early, and some did.

According to the publication, “one person who knows the contents of the written complaint… said it used the word ‘Stalinist’ to describe the tone set by officials overseeing CENTCOM analysis.”

Following the jihadist attacks on Paris on November 13, Obama maintained his insistence that climate change is a graver threat to US national security than terrorism. It could be that this prioritization of concerns is playing a role in the administration’s apparent determination not to seriously fight Islamic State.

In an interview with Charlie Rose last month, former CIA director Michael Morell explained that the administration decided not to bomb Islamic State’s oil infrastructure “because we didn’t want to do environmental damage.”

According to the Guardian, Islamic State makes between one to four million dollars per day from oil sales.

Perhaps the shooters in San Bernadino were just mad at their boss. Maybe Farooq suffered from clinical depression or ADD, or PTSD, or something.

And maybe Islamic State, with its new colony Sirte in “liberated” Libya, just 400 miles from Italy, is on the run. Maybe as well, Turkey is just a patsy and Russia is really Islamic State’s largest trading partner, or maybe Israel is, or Ireland.

But if facts are to be taken seriously, then the fact is that in December 2015, the US is acting with pathological devotion to ideological narratives that bear no relationship to reality.

About Caroline B. Glick

I grew up in Chicago’s ultra-liberal Hyde Park neighborhood. Hyde Park’s most famous resident is Barack Obama.

I made aliyah to Israel in 1991, two weeks after receiving my BA in Political Science from another radical liberal stronghold — Columbia University in New York, otherwise known as Beir Zeit on the Hudson.

I joined the Israel Defense Forces that summer and served as an officer for five and a half years.

From 1994-1996, as an IDF captain, I served as Coordinator of Negotiations with the PLO in the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. In this capacity I was a core member of Israel’s negotiating team with the Palestinians.

In 1997 and 1998 I served as assistant foreign policy advisor Binyamin Netayahu [sic] during his first stint as Prime Minister.

From 1998-2000 I returned to the US for graduate school. I received a Master’s in Public Policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. Although I spent most of my free time hiking in New England, it did not escape my attention that much of the faculty at the Kennedy School was not particularly fond of America, (Alinsky’s organizing methods were taught in a required first year course for MPP candidates) — or of Israel.

The latter truth was exposed for all the world to see when my former professor Steve Walt co-wrote the updated version of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion with his friend from my childhood hometown – University of Chicago’s John Mearshimer.

After I finished graduate school I returned to Israel and began writing at READ THE REST at CarolineGlick.com

4 highly DISTURBING facts about the San Bernardino shooters


The San Bernardino Massacre facts have been slow coming. Most of yesterday the most Conservative of the television networks – Fox News – reported the reluctance of authorities to call the massacre an Islamic terrorist attack. I did not hear the names of the Muslim Bonnie & Clyde terrorists until this morning. Surprise! Their names were Islamic in nature even though the male was born in the USA. As far as I know to date the wife (Tashfeen Malik) was identified as an American but as a gal that Syed Farouk married in Saudi Arabia and brought back to the USA. (My guess is my info will have been made public before I even post this on my blog.)

AND CRAZIER! Even though Muslim Bonnie & Clyde were armed to teethe with automatic weapons and homemade bombs, the authorities still are failing to call this Islamic terrorism.

Here are some details I found originally at American Action News but sourced from the Allen B West website by Michele Hickford. I’m cross posting the A.B. West website because it appears to be a bit more updated than the AAN piece.

4 highly DISTURBING facts about the San Bernardino shooters

By Michele Hickford, Editor-in-Chief

December 3, 2015

Allen B. West – Steadfast and Loyal

[UPDATE: The original photo used for this article was incorrect, as it was the wrong Syed Farook. The photo here is now corrected].

While we know little about the 14 people killed and the 17 injured in the mass shooting yesterday in California, authorities have released very distressing details about the two dead shooters.

1. Syed Farouk was a 28-year-old American citizen. His accomplice was 27-year-old Tashfeen Malik. According to AL.com. Police said the two were either engaged or already married. The Los Angeles Times reported Farook met Malik online. She was living in Saudi Arabia at the time. It’s not clear if Malik was a U.S. citizen or not.

The couple is believed to be the parents of a six-month old baby who was reportedly staying with grandparents at the time of the attacks. They left the baby with the grandparents and said they had to go to a doctor’s appointment.

2. Farook was identified by co-workers who witnessed the Christmas party being held by the San Bernardino County public health department, which had rented a room at the Inland Regional Center. At about 11:40 a.m., an officer told dispatchers a witness said a male left the building “out of the blue,” and 20 minutes later the shooting started. The witness said he matched the physical description of one of the shooters and was acting nervous before leaving.

3. Farook’s father said his son was a very devout Muslim.

Farook recently took a trip to Saudi Arabia for about a month and came back with a wife, a co-worker told The Associated Press. On a dating website where Farook set up a profile, Dubai Matriomonial, he said he was a Sunni Muslim.

4. This attack was very well planned. The attackers were (as Col. West describes it) fully “jocked up” in tactical gear, including masks, vests – even GoPro cameras. It would appear they planned to survive the attack, and were not initially suicide attackers.

As Fox News reports, “They came prepared to do what they did, as if they were on a mission,” San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said.

A law enforcement source told Fox News that the couple were each carrying an AR-15 rifle and and a pistol when they were shot and killed by police after a brief chase in their black SUV about 2 miles from the initial shooting site. The source said the vehicle also contained so-called “rollout bags” with multiple pipe bombs, as well as additional ammunition. The couple also had GoPro cameras strapped to their body armor and wore tactical clothing, including vests stuffed with ammunition magazines.

“That’s a military tactic for a sustained fight,” the source told Fox News of the rollout bags.

In addition to the explosives found at the SUV, authorities discovered and detonated three pipe bombs late Wednesday at the Inland Regional Center, the complex where the initial shooting took place about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.

Another source described a house in Redlands that was being searched in connection with the shooting as “an IED facility.” The source said investigators discovered multiple pipe bombs in the house, as well as small explosives that were strapped to remote-controlled cars.

C’mon folks. This was a well-planned, Islamic terror attack. What else could it possibly be?
