New York Times on "Arab-Spring"...?

Post  News Hawk on Sat Jun 29, 2013 4:29 am

Following an American killed while filming a protest, a mob visciously attacks a praying group of Shia Muslims, who are murdered, hanged and dragged through the streets...
 
...U.S. Marines poised to protect the US Embassy...
 
Things are looking tense—perhaps Team-Obama needs to send a new Ambassador, who's homosexual?

Question

"In Egypt, President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the Sunni Islamist party from which he hails, have failed to unite the overwhelmingly Sunni country and its Christian and Shiite minorities around a centrist agenda in the post-Mubarak era. Instead, they have solidified ties with Salafist hard-liners in the Islamist camp; derided opponents, including many secularists, as “enemies of Egypt”; and demonized Shiite and Coptic Christian minorities.

The mob attack came after months of anti-Shiite hate speech; the week before the incident, Mr. Morsi appeared on stage at an event with hard-line Sunni clerics who denounced Shiites as “filthy.” Tensions over Mr. Morsi’s rule have been running strong for some time. On Friday, at least three people were killed and hundreds were injured in protests, and many fear violence during protest rallies set for June 30, the first anniversary of his inauguration. . .

Finally a trend in Egypt: millions disaffected by Morsi's election.

Army to step in?

A hope and change against a repressive Muslim Brotherhood government?

Who has inserts in the White House, and had visited Obama last week?

Shocked 

Egyptian Armed Forces spokesman Ahmed Ali issued a statement on Facebook on Monday stating that Egyptian military doctrine did not allow for "military coups."

Egyptian Armed Forces' doctrines do not include military coups as a policy. The armed forces already deployed on Egypt's streets in 1977, 1987 and 2011 and this did not lead to a coup, but rather [led the army] to stand with the will of the great Egyptian people and their desire for reform and change.

So Much for a Nobel Peace Prize...

Post  News Hawk on Sun Dec 07, 2014 4:27 am

In WW2, the Allies squandered blood and treasure to keep Libya from the National-Socialist enemy.

We had suffered many casualties and our numbers were down to only 18 tanks. The Australians were pushing their way along the coast road, past Derna on the way to Benghazi.

Meanwhile, ISIS is destroying the headstones of WW2 Allies' war-dead, left behind.

Sad


It is a warm October evening in Derna, a small town on Libya’s north east coast, 450 miles from the capital, Tripoli.

The main square is packed with young men, brought by a summons from the town’s self-proclaimed emir to swear allegiance to a newly formed Islamic caliphate. (ISIS).

The emir, on a stage just visible through the jumping throng, calls for the crowd to repeat his calls to join the a caliphate, to listen and follow orders, and to acclaim that the Islamic State (ISIS) is here to stay.

To each call, they repeat the chant, roaring their support – and with that, the emir declares Derna the first town in Libya to join the Islamic State, making common cause with fighters in Iraq and Syria.

This week, the Pentagon went public with its concerns, when the commander of the US army’s Africa Command told reporters that ISIS is now running training camps in Libya, where as many as 200 fighters are receiving instruction.

“ISIS has begun its efforts over in the east out there,” said General David Rodriguez. “It’s mainly about people coming for training and logistics support right now.”

ISIS units recently staged a show of force in Derna, with 60 jeeps packed with black-clad fighters parading around the town.

Their leader, or emir, is Saudi preacher Abu al-Baraa el-Azdi, who arrived from abroad in September. Backing him up are two to three hundred fighters, mostly Libyans, with combat experience in Syria. Under their control, Derna is being cleared of opponents, with a string of assassinations of judges, government officials and activists.

In November the severed heads of three young activists were discovered in the town. El Azdi has set himself up as Derna's supreme judge in the requisitioned courthouse, dispensing executions and floggings.

The floggings are carried out on a raised platform outside the courthouse, the executions by balaclava-wearing men in the football stadium. Police cars sport the ISIS logo, black flags hang from buildings and at night blue neon signs flash the ISIS message from shops and lampposts, according to local sources.

Schools have been ordered to separate male and female pupils and shops forbidden from displaying clothes on female mannequins.

“Everyone is nervous of them, there were protests but nobody wants to protest now,” said one man whose family recently fled the city.

The US has stepped up surveillance in recent days, with drones and electronic surveillance planes based in Italy making constant flights. Officials worry about ISIS leaping beyond its present confines in Iraq and Syria, with Libya a tempting target, rich in oil and close to Europe’s southern shores.

As in Iraq and Syria, Libya’s chaos may prove the greatest asset for ISIS to grow. Militia infighting which plagued the country since the 2011 revolution that overthrew Muammar Gaddafi exploded into open war in the summer.

The country now has two governments; one of rebels in Tripoli, the other having fled to the east.

US officials caution that Libya’s ISIS may be a “copycat” operation rather than being directed by Isis commanders in Iraq and Syria, but some terrorist experts say the distinction is false, because ISIS works as a “franchise”, exporting leaders to create fresh enclaves.

“In places like Yemen, Libya, their intention is to get as many groups around the world to swear allegiance,” said Peter Newman, professor of security studies at King’s College London.

“It’s the ‘oil spill’ strategy. They form enclaves, then they grow and connect together.”

Derna has a long history of jihadist resistance. In the 1990s, its young men flocked to the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which battled the Gaddafi regime in the nearby Green Mountain.

Defeated by government troops, the group’s members fled to Afghanistan and Iraq. US forces seized a register of al-Qaida’s foreign fighters in Iraq in 2006, the subsequent report saying that no town in the world supplied more foreign fighters, per head of population, than Derna.

Within Derna, ISIS has vanquished militias from al-Qaida and the Islamist Abu Salim Martyrs Brigade. The biggest problem it faces in spreading beyond Derna may be winning over a population at present in a state of fear.

“It will be a challenge for ISIS to show they can rule. That’s the downside of running a state: with power comes responsibility,” said Newman.
Isn't it just wonderful that Obama's air raids have "transformed" still another country?

No

An American's Call for Action...

Post  News Hawk on Fri Jan 30, 2015 6:56 am

BUT to extend the thought process even further, isn’t it a fact that Islam’s march into America poses a precipitous danger, as well as to the west at large? Yet, if flying heads – plus every other barbarism housed under Shariah Law’s banner - isn’t enough to spur westerners into action, then what else is there left to say...?

MOST significantly, behind every Islamic danger hides a tentacled Muslim Brotherhood front group. This truth cannot be swept under the rug, nor double-talked. You gotta deal with reality, discomfiting as it is.


STILL, as onerous as it is, there has to be a starting point. Therefore, let’s begin by unmasking Islam, and we can proceed from there. Why is this necessary? Well, once the mental band-aid is ripped off, not only will it get easier to do what must be done, but it will allow westerners to realize that stepping up is a matter of national security.

The Obama administration is complicit! Why don't we hear of this Islamic "progress" from our media?

Forty-four police officers trapped and killed yesterday by Abu Sayef:


A long, slow procession of coffins draped in the Philippine flag poured out of military transport planes in Manila on Thursday, as the country mourned dozens of policemen killed in a botched anti-terror operation.

Marching to muted drums, uniformed commandos bore the numbered coffins of comrades brought home from the southern island of Mindanao, the scene of the worst loss of life by the country's police or troops in recent memory.

President Benigno Aquino has declared Friday a day of mourning for the 44 men slaughtered in a cornfield Sunday.

Hillary's Base Acting Up...

Post  News Hawk on Fri Jan 30, 2015 7:15 am

Obama State Department hosts Muslim Brotherhood leaders

“Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders Hosted at State Department”


After the recent speech [Egypt's] al-Sisi made calling for a reevaluation of the aspects of Islamic thinking that are “antagonizing the entire world,” the State Department should be working closely with him on strategies for teaching against jihad violence and Islamic supremacism in Muslim countries.

Instead, it is meeting with his opposition, which is dedicated in its own words, according to a captured internal document, to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house.”

New Jersey school promotes "Wear a Hijab Day".
Excerpt:

"...It’s outrageous primarily because it brought religion into a public school in a way that directly conflicts with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, which prohibits school-sponsored prayer and religious indoctrination.

Encouraging girls and women to wear hijabs for “modesty” is clearly an example of religious indoctrination. Can you imagine the public outrage if a Jewish student requested “Yarmulke Day” and all men and boys at the school were urged to wear a head covering of the type that Jewish men and boys wear? It’s unimaginable.

For your future use, here’s a guideline on Religion in Schools produced by the ACLU:
www.aclu-tn.org/pdfs/briefer_religion_in_public_schools.pdf.
Jihadwatch.com

Email response by the school's Principal:


“At a time when anti-Muslim sentiment is growing, I wanted to let my classmates and teachers know about the challenges that young Muslim women face when they put on a headscarf. It is unfortunate that a small effort to promote mutual understanding would provoke such a hate-filled and irrational response.

NP3 Hijab Day was part of my Senior Project, meant to bring awareness to my campus about the misconceptions surrounding Islam, particularly those surrounding the headscarf. I invited a speaker to talk to faculty about addressing Islamophobia in the classroom and the challenges in the Muslim world, and they appreciated the open and frank discussion.

The irrational reaction by some intolerant individuals is similar to the many manufactured controversies nationwide over the teaching of basic information about Islam, the faith of one-fifth of the world’s population, in public schools. In many other cases, any discussion of Islam or American Muslims brings about this reaction.

The person who promoted the misinformation about this issue, Robert Spencer, is one of the most notorious Islamophobes in America.

This extreme reaction clearly demonstrates why this presentation was needed in the first place.

The Hijab allows women to show their faces.



Hillary, hoping to keep her base voters—submits:



Credit goes to Michelle Obama for refusing to greet the new Saudi king wearing a hijab!

(Arab news sources erased Michelle from pictures in the press).
