Al Qaeda in U.S.

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs

22 October 2007: [N]orthern New Jersey is not the only locale of Islamic terrorist networking. Every major city in the country has terrorist cells. Rural areas have them in abundance as well. Find a mosque or an Islamic charity in the US - and you’ll also find a terrorist cell or support structure embedded within it. Most of the primary Al Qaeda and Islamic terrorist websites are hosted by U.S. ISPs.

It seems obvious to me that our government is scared silly by the active Islamic insurgency within America. So scared that, at least in their public comments, they’re in abject denial of the insurgency. In fact, Joint Staff counterterrorism analyst Stephen Coughlin has warned anyone who will listen in the Federal Government that the U.S. Justice Department’s outreach to suspect Muslim groups could ‘legitimize threat organizations by providing them domestic sanctuary.’

CAIR hits a new low of defamation

22 October 2007: The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has never cared much for the truth when speaking about me. The organization’s spokesman, Ibrahim Hooper, has defamed me on national television, and the organization’s website even featured a link, for a time, to a tissue of lies penned by a pathetic convicted felon.

But now CAIR has reached a new low, in a press release entitled, “‘Islamo-Fascism’ Week Speaker Meets With European ‘Neo-Nazis.’”

WASHINGTON, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) revealed today that the main speaker for an upcoming series of “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” lectures at university campuses nationwide recently offered a keynote address at a European gathering that included representatives of racist or “neo-Nazi” political parties.

Israel Warns World War III May be Biblical War of Gog and Magog

19 October 2007: Sound like we’ve taken leave of our senses? Think again. It’s not US saying this - there are NUMEROUS individuals who are in positions of political authority in the U.S. and overseas who are giving this “possibility” a deeper look.

US President George W. Bush said a nuclear Iran would mean World War III. Israeli newscasts featured Gog & Magog maps of the likely alignment of nations in that potential conflict.

Channel 2 and Channel 10 TV showed the world map, sketching the basic alignment of the two opposing axes in a coming world war, in a manner evoking associations of the Gog and Magog prophecy for many viewers. The prophecy of Gog and Magog refers to a great world war centered on the Holy Land and Jerusalem and first appears in the book of Yechezkel (Ezekiel).

On one side were Israel, the United States, Britain, France and Germany. On the other were Iran, Russia, China, Syria and North Korea.

US President Bush said Wednesday during a press conference that Iran attaining nuclear weapons raises the risk of “World War III.”

“If Iran had a nuclear weapon, it’d be a dangerous threat to world peace,” Bush said. “So I told people that if you’re interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested [in preventing a nuclear Iran] - I take the threat of Iran with a nuclear weapon very seriously.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Iran Tuesday and slammed the US’s refusal to rule out the use of force against Iran’s nuclear project. “Not only should we reject the use of force, but also the mention of force as a possibility,” he said.

Russia has blocked tougher UN sanctions in the UN Security Council, where it has veto power. The Russian president asserts that there is no evidence Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons rather than a peaceful nuclear power program.

Israel’s Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni called for a new Security Council resolution against Iran at a press conference following her meeting with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice Wednesday. “I do believe there is a need for another Security Council resolution,” she told reporters. “In the past, the need to get everybody on board - including Russia and China - led to some compromises on the nature of the sanctions. I hope this will not be the case this time.”

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced Wednesday a sudden trip to Moscow Thursday morning, where he will meet with Putin about Iran. Other topics of discussion will reportedly be Russia’s continued supply of weapons to Syria, which have then made their way into the hands of various terrorist groups based there as well.

U.S. & NATO Alliance with Turkey in Extreme Peril

“The vote that Pelosi wants will most assuredly bring full-scale war to a region where none exists this morning.”–Sean Osborne

Everything You Need to Know About the PKK
By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs

15 October 2007: The U.S. Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), has declared her intention to force a vote on a Congressional resolution which declares the deaths of a million Armenians at the hands of the declining Ottoman Turk Empire as genocide.

Cooler heads in the U.S. Congress, State Department and the White House, as well as regional and continental allies, fully understand the critical issues and complexities of such a vote. They have warned in unambiguous terms that proceeding with the vote and passing such a resolution risks destroying the core of the special relationship and alliance that the United States has maintained with its strategic ally Turkey. This would potentially cause irreparable damage to the NATO alliance at a critical time when Turkey’s membership in that alliance is essential.

The Democrat Speaker of the House could not have chosen a more politically expedient vehicle to destroy the sum total of American and Coalition accomplishments in Iraq over the past 4 years than an insistence upon a vote declaring the 1915 Ottoman-Armenian conflict to be unilateral genocide. Kurdish northern Iraq has been the most stable area of the country. A threatened Turkish invasion would radically change that situation for the worse. The vote that Pelosi wants will most assuredly bring full-scale war to a region where none exists this morning; doing to the Kurds militarily what Saddam Hussein’s military was unable to do for the 13 years between Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003.

The long-standing strategic relationship between the U.S. and Turkey would also be lost. The joint U.S.-Turkish air base at Incirlik would witness the Americans packing their bags for a rapid, currently unscheduled departure.

This issue has not come to a vote in a binding resolution for the past 90 years specifically due to the multiple adverse effects it would have. Yet the only rationale that Pelosi is able to fathom is the damage that vote would do to American interests in the region. Apparently for Pelosi and the Democrat radicals in Congress the risks of a larger regional war and potential deaths of hundreds of thousands in the region are of insufficient consequence to their agenda and domestic political objectives.

Several top al Qaeda associates… in New Jersey

From Mike Kelly, Record Columnist

Task force investigators have discovered that every major terrorist group in the world, including Hamas and Hezbollah, has at least one North Jersey contact.

15 October 2007: Osama bin Laden may be hiding in the impenetrable mountains near the Afghanistan border, but FBI counterterror officials say they have identified several of his associates in a far more accessible spot — northern New Jersey.

Last one out of the Empire State Building…please turn the lights off

The ideological war against America from within

11 October 2007: Six years ago, the skies over New York were lit up with the glow from the fiery embers of the World Trade Center towers, its furnishing and yes, its occupants - from the worst attack on American soil by the followers of a religious and cultural ideology. That ideology declared war on the U.S. which we are still fighting. So, how does a New York landmark building commemorate the very ideology that changed the landscape of that city?

The iconic building is to be lit up in “HAMAS green” from Friday in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid, the biggest festival in the Muslim calendar marking the end of Ramadan. depending on when the new moon is sighted, and the Empire State Building will shine it’s green lighting in honor of Eid al-Fitr, an Islamic holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. It is expected to be green from Friday through Sunday.

According to an official statement: “This is the first time that the Empire State Building will be illuminated for Eid, and the lighting will become an annual event in the same tradition of the yearly lightings for Christmas and Hannukah.”

The Trouble With Muslim Charity

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

10 October 2007: This, from Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) article posted yesterday:

“The shocking truth is that Islamic religious giving - called “zakat,” the third pillar of Islam - supports terrorism. And millions of the blood money is donated by American Muslims through mosques and various charities once considered mainstream.”

(Excerpted from later in the article): “At many of the fund-raising events, the speakers performed skits and songs which advocated the destruction of the state of Israel and glorified the killing of Jewish people,” according to the federal indictment. They also sang songs in praise of Hamas.”

Read the entire Investor’s Business Daily article, print it out, spread it among your friends, as the financing of terrorism from INSIDE their enemy county - the United States - is purposely convoluted and quite effective.

On-site investigation by this agency - the Northeast Intelligence Network - found one such questionable “charity” that was reportedly established to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Based in Binghamton, NY, investigator and director of the Northeast Intelligence Network Doug Hagmann located the charity’s main office and found an empty apartment (except for multiple prayer rugs) in a dingy multi-family building in Binghamton, NY.

Among the few documents at this location were newspapers owned and edited by well-known Pakistani Islamic terrorist Sheihk Mubarek Gilani, printed in the Caribbean and distributed to his followers inside the U.S.
