In TV speech, Sheikh Qaradawi stresses Islamic nature of Israeli-Palestinian con

28 February 2006: Top Islamist cleric Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi has delivered a speech on Qatari television calling on Muslims to murder Jews in “in the name of Islam.”

On February 25, Qaradawi told viewers: “Everything will be on our side and against Jews on (Judgment Day); at that time, even the stones and the trees will speak, with or without words, and say: ‘Oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim, there’s a Jew behind me, come and kill him. They will point to the Jews.”

“It says ’servant of Allah,’ not ’servant of desires,’ ’servant of women,’ ’servant of the bottle,’ ’servant of Marxism,’ or ’servant of liberalism’… It said ’servant of Allah,’” added Qaradawi.

Emphasizing the Islamic nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and attempting to denigrate the role of Arab nationalism, Qaradawi said: “When the Muslims, the Arabs, and the Palestinians enter a war, they do it to worship Allah. They enter it as Muslims. The hadith says: ‘Oh Muslim.’ It says ‘oh Muslim,’ not ‘oh Palestinian, Jordanian, Syrian, or Arab nationalist.’ No, it says: ‘Oh Muslim.’ When we enter (a war) under the banner of Islam, and under the banner of serving Allah, we will be victorious.”

Qaradawi, who is seen as a highly influential religious leader, also threatened that if Palestinians were reluctant to carry out a jihad, other Muslims would take their place.

“We are fighting them in the name of Islam, because Islam commands us to fight whoever plunders our land, and occupies our country. All the school of Islamic jurisprudence - the Sunni, the Shiite, the Ibadhiya - and all the ancient and modern schools of jurisprudence - agree that any invader who occupies even an inch of land of the Muslims must face resistance,” he said.

“The Muslims of that country must carry out the resistance, and the rest of the Muslims must help them. If the people of that country are incapable or reluctant, we must fight to defend the land of Islam, even if the local (Muslims) give it up,” added Qaradawi.

Qaradawi, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, was invited to London in 2004 by Mayor Ken Livingstone, who then described the cleric as a “progressive figure.”

A Disappointing Faux “Investigative Report”

terror-007

21 February 2006: Last evening, FOX5 from New York aired a much-publicized follow-up “investigative report” of Islamberg, the Muslim compound based in the western Catskills of New York and previously documented to have ties to the Pakistani-based terrorist organization Jamaat ul-Fuqra. Their “investigative report” was heavily advertised during the airing of the popular television program “24,” an innovative, fictional series that features Kiefer Sutherland as government agent Jack Bauer fighting terrorists and thwarting terrorist attacks inside the U.S. The build-up to the special report by the Fox News station throughout the program was engaging, and featured visual graphics like the graphic shown above. Their “investigation” was prompted by the original investigative report published by the Northeast Intelligence Network and co-authored by Internet reporter “CP.” Following the publication of our findings, which was the result of a covert investigation performed by our professional investigators, they sent a reporter and camera person to the compound to conduct inquiries of their own.

Despite the intensive build-up to the Fox News 5 story during the crisis-laden episode of “24,” the FOX5 reporter hardly arrived at the same conclusions that we detailed in our report. The disparity should surprise no one, as people tend to behave differently when a news team shows up to conduct an “investigation” in the wake of a fully-sourced and much publicized investigative report. Absent from the news footage were the armed compound “guards,” who apparently opted not to be featured on the Ten O’clock news. Also predictably absent in their report were the residents interviewed by our investigators who privately offered details of the unusual activity at that compound, only when assured of anonymity as they must continue to reside in the area. Logically enough, they feared potential reprisals for providing any information about their controversial “neighbors.” After all, they must continue to live in the area long after the camera lights are shut off and the reporter is safely back at his station.

The FOX News 5 reporter did manage to engage in a dialogue with two older, black Muslim residents of the compound, one who identified himself as the “Mayor of Islamberg.” How convenient that the reporter was met by “his honor” himself during his unannounced visit, who all but presented the FOX News 5 reporter with the ceremonial keys to his city.

The “mayor,” however, had some rather harsh things to say about our original report, 9/11, and the President of the United States, George W. Bush. Apparently, the “mayor” of Islamberg took issue with our investigative findings, and stated that we are “Jews” simply trying to stir up trouble. He also stated that he does not believe Islamic terrorists perpetrated the murderous 9/11 attacks, calling George Bush the “real terrorist.” One has to wonder whether the FOX News 5 reporter actually [i]believed[/i] that the purported “mayor” of Islamberg would actually shed any light on any questionable activities, past or present, taking place in his “city.”

Yet another elected official interviewed on camera by the Fox News 5 reporter was the county sheriff, who called the citizens of Islamberg: “God fearing, law abiding citizens who behave themselves when they come into town,” adding that they do not come into town very often. The curious yet unexplored nature of the latter comment aside, it is important to remember that the sheriff is an elected official as well as a law enforcement officer, and to admit anything other than “business as usual” within his jurisdiction would raise both safety and political concerns. It is also important to remember that law enforcement at this level is more reactive than proactive, and trained to respond to incidents rather than engage in covert intelligence operations.

In a very literal sense, however, the “investigative reporter” largely “missed the bus” during his visit to the enchanting “city” of Islamberg: the school bus that was depicted in the Fox News 5 television footage shown here:

cats1

This specific bus, or perhaps it could be more accurately described as “evidence,” was plainly visible to the news crew and the film footage. This school bus was present within the compound, which is rather odd for a “city” whose school-aged children are reportedly taught within the compound and accordingly have no need for such transportation. By the “investigative reporter’s” standards, the bus warranted nothing more than a brief pan of the camera, providing only a passing glimpse of it’s blown out windows and what appear to be bullet holes in the body of the bus. Why was this not of any interest to the FOX News 5 crew?

School buses (and the children inside them) have been referenced by Islamic terrorists in their jihad writings, and further confirmed by our government as future targets for terror. Recently, a new program funded by the Department of Homeland Security was established. This program trains school bus drivers to watch for suspicious activity potentially relating to terrorism, and educates the drivers on their role in keeping the children safe in the event of a terrorist takeover of their vehicle. Possible bullet holes and blown out windows apparently did not warrant further scrutiny by the “investigative reporter.”

We have seen this “meet and greet” tactic before in other areas of the country, whereby Islamic compounds under suspicion, attempt to “put on a friendly face” for a news channel’s “investigative reporter”. After drawing attention to a similar situation in Buffalo, New York, the Imam of an Islamic “school” arranged for a “tour” of a site under suspicion. That “tour” was not complete, but was a narrow, guided walkthrough of a small portion of the facility. Following that tour, and despite a documented public invitation for “anyone, at any time” to tour the facility, additional media and political requests for a more complete tour were denied. Those denials continue to this day.

When FOX News 5’s findings are examined through this filter, it is not surprising that their “investigative reporter” was shown something quite different than our less overt, initial investigation found.

Perhaps the most important thing missing from Fox News 5’s “investigative report” was the reporter’s own mea culpa, mimicking the apologies of Kiefer Sutherland, the star of Fox’s own “24” during a recent episode:

“Hi. My name is Kiefer Sutherland. And I play counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer on Fox’s ‘24’. I would like to take a moment to talk to you about something that I think is very important. Now, while terrorism is obviously one of the most critical challenges facing our nation and the world, it is important to recognize that the American Muslim community stands firmly beside their fellow Americans in denouncing and resisting all forms of terrorism. So in watching 24, please, bear that in mind.”

The Northeast Intelligence Network stands by its report and investigative findings. Meanwhile, those who find comfort in the reports by the major media can do so, perhaps at their own peril.

“Jihad” Training Inside the U.S. - Interview with Former Terrorists

16 February 2006: A 16-minute interview with three former terrorists, including one from Dearborn, Michigan, MUST be seen by anyone who doubts that Muslims inside the U.S. are training for “jihad” against the U.S. and other Western countries. The Northeast Intelligence Network has consistently documented and provided our readers with tangible evidence in the form of surveillance photographs, investigative reports and other authenticated material that training for an Islamic Jihad, or “holy war” is taking place within our own borders. As Military Affairs Expert and senior analyst Sean Osborn outlines below, the interview provides explosive first-person accounts of the terrorists plans. This interview was recorded in January and should be seen by everyone in America.

Fallujihad in America: See Former Islamic Terrorists Tell You The Truth

Fallujihad is a word that I have coined to express the desire of Islam to engage in jihad right here on the city streets within the United States of America just as they have done in places such as Fallujah, Iraq.

Hence: Fallujihad in America.

Click the link below to see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears three former Islamic terrorists, Walid Shoebat, Ibrahim Abdullah (born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan) and Zak Anani, as recorded in a 16 minute interview broadcast on Comcast News with host Greg Coy on the recent January 2006 CN8 News program: “Your Morning”

LINK: http://tinyurl.com/d12dm

All three former Islamic terrorists will tell you in first-person accounts about:

1. The Islamic terrorist plans, goals and recruitment of rank and file Muslims here in America, as well as around the world to engage in a continuing jihad against our way of life and the imposition of Islamic rule upon us all.

2. How we need to wage war on Islamic terrorism in the same manner as we did Nazi Germany; how our current level of retaliation is insufficient; their view that President George Bush is “not aggressive enough” in pursuing the current global War on Terror.

3. How all Islamic infrastructure including Islamic centers and mosques in America are actively involved in the cultivation of American-born Muslims to become jihadists of the Fallujah variety; how the majority of Muslim’s — “60 to 75%” of the Muslim population support the terrorist agenda and are responsible for collecting and sending miliions upon millions of dollars to support the terrorist war effort against us.

4. How there is “no question about it” that Islam is engaged in a war against us, that this is an integral part of the Islamic culture both here in America and the Muslim world as a whole.

All Three men will tell you that the vast majorty of American’s are oblivious to these facts and we all need to wake up to the reality of the war being waged against us in our own backyards.

UPDATE 16 February 2006

Here is a link to the appearance of Walid Shoebat and Zak Anani on the FoxNews program The O’Reilly Factor:

A Suggestion of Revisionist History within EU Schools

16 February 2006: A call by a member of the European Parliament has been made for the creation of a special committee to examine religious education and textbooks in schools to insure that the content does not offend Islam. Hans-Gert Pöttering from Germany, who heads the largest group of MEPs, said that textbooks should be reviewed for intolerant depictions of Islam and other faiths by experts overseen by the European Union and Islamic leaders. He added that the work of building bridges between Islam and the West had to “begin with young people,” and said that “textbooks should be checked to ensure they promoted European values without propagating religious stereotypes or prejudice.” Pöttering suggested that the EU could co-operate with the 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference, which has its headquarters in Saudi Arabia, to create a textbook review committee.

U.S. Seeks Extradition of TWA Flight 847 Murderer from Lebanon

14 February 2006: The United States has officially asked the Lebanese government to extradite a Lebanese man who killed U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem, 23 during the 1985 hijacking of TWA Flight 847, State Department officials said Monday. Sought for trial in the U.S. is Mohammed Ali HAMADI, a HEZBOLLAH terrorist from Lebanon.TWA Flight 847 was hijacked on June 14, 1985 while flying from Athens to Rome with 153 passengers and crew aboard. It was commandeered shortly after takeoff by two terrorists who smuggled pistols and grenades through the Athens airport security. On the second day of the 17-day hijacking and hostage ordeal, the plane was forced to land in Beirut, where Hamadi and the other hijackers beat and shot Stethem, and dumped his body on the runway. Mohammed Ali Hamadi, a Shiite terrorist, was identified as one of the hijackers was arrested in 1987 in Frankfurt, Germany with liquid explosives in his luggage. He was tried and convicted of Stethem’s murder and was sentenced to life in prison, but was released by German officials on December 20, 2005. The Frankfurt prosecutor’s office declared that “Hamadi had served his time.” He returned to Lebanon, which was confirmed by the Shiite terrorist group Hezbollah.

The U.S. ambassador to Lebanon, Jeffrey Feltman, submitted a formal written request for Hamadi’s extradition to Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora last week, although no extradition treaty exists between the U.S. and Lebanon. If extradited, HAMADI would face a series of charges related to the hijacking, including one charge that could potentially carry the death penalty. According to Justice Department officials, however, HAMADI would not likely face a death sentence if he is extradited.

Last week, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other top U.S. officials met with members of Stethem’s family. Patrick Stethem, a brother of the murdered diver, said in December that he was “totally disgusted at the German government, and at the United States government for allowing this to have happened.” State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said in December the United States would “find [Hamadi] and bring him to justice in the United States.”

Ali Atwa, Hasan Izz-al-din and Imad Fayez Mugniyah are suspects in the hijacking and Stethem’s murder and are included in the U.S. extradition request, but it is unclear whether those men are in Lebanon. They are listed by the FBI on its list of most-wanted terrorists and members of Hezbollah.

Aircraft Landing in Detroit Report Laser Activity

14 February 2006: Police and federal authorities are investigating reports that as many as 19 passenger planes arriving at the Detroit Metro Airport last evening were hit by commercial type lasers during their final approach. Pilots of the aircraft reported that lasers were being aimed at the cockpits of the aircraft from the ground. Initial investigation determined that the lasers apparently originated from the west end of the city along the Telegraph Road corridor, according to Dearborn Police Chief Michael Celeski. Most of the affected aircraft were reportedly approaching the airport from the north. Police searched the general area near Telegraph Road but failed to find the origin of the lasers or those responsible.

Last week, the crew aboard a Delta jetliner reported that someone pointed a laser at the aircraft as it was approaching Seattle-Tacoma International Airport On Tuesday, 7 February 2006. Crew members said they observed intermittent red laser bursts as the plane approached the airport for a landing at about 9:30 p.m.

The Northeast Intelligence Network is continuing to investigate the laser incidents against our passenger aircraft across the U.S.

Jamaat ul-Fuqra Training Compound Inside the United States

13 February 2006: We see children – small children run around over there when they should be in school. We hear bursts of gunfire all of the time, and we know that there is military like training going on there. Those people are armed and dangerous. We get nothing but menacing looks from the people who go in and out of the camp, and sometime they yell at us to mind our own business when we are just driving by. We don’t even dare to slow down when we drive by. They own this mountain and they know it, and there is nothing we can do about it but move, and we can’t even do that. Who wants to buy property next to that?”

Jamaat al Fuqra, a terrorist organization founded by Sheik Mubarek Ali Shah Gilani, the Islamic cleric Daniel Pearl was attempting to interview when he was kidnapped, and a group that has been linked to over two-dozen murders and fire-bombings inside the U.S., maintains active training compounds inside the United States. Perhaps the largest - and their operational headquarters, is situated on 70 acres nestled in a remote and heavily secluded area on the western edge of the Catskill Mountains in New York state, about 40 miles southeast of Binghamton, NY.

Pennsylvania Man in Plot to Assist al Qaeda

Targets: U.S. Gas Pipelines, Refineries in New Jersey & Wyoming

12 February 2006: Michael Curtis REYNOLDS, 47, formerly of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, and Pocatello, Idaho, has been incarcerated in the Lackawanna County, PA jail since December 5, 2005 on a weapons charge. Federal officials, however, have evidence that he actively attempted to provide material aid to al-Qaeda by planning to detonate propane-filled trucks along sections of the Trans-Alaskan and Transcontinental Pipelines, and blow up the Standard Oil Co. in Perth Amboy, New Jersey and the Williams Refinery in Opal, Wyoming. Although he has yet to be charged with terrorism, Assistant U.S. Attorney John Gurganus testified at REYNOLD’S December hearing that “he [REYNOLDS] was doing it as a plan to disrupt governmental function, to change the government’s actions in foreign countries, and to impact on the national debate about the war.”

Until March or April of 2005, REYNOLDS resided in Wilkes-Barre, when he “disappeared” and left his elderly mother alone. According to press reports, REYNOLDS’ sister came to the home to care for her mother and contacted police after finding a grenade inside of the home. Meanwhile, REYNOLDS was reportedly traveling inside the U.S., although recently became a resident of a hotel in Pocatello, Idaho. From there, he actively sought financing from al Qaeda terrorists to purchase the trucks and materials to execute the plot.

REYNOLDS was returned to Pennsylvania on one charge of possession of a grenade. The FBI then obtained search warrants for his computers and his e-mail accounts, finding e-mails and other information outlining the plot. Federal agents in Idaho, Montana, Utah and Pennsylvania are continuing to investigate REYNOLDS’ activities.

REYNOLDS has a criminal history going back to 1978, when he was convicted of attempted arson and menacing. He also has unrelated convictions for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and breach of the peace.
