Burqa Barbie: Veiled oppression

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

24 November 2009: In the event you missed it: just in time for this year’s Judeo-Christian holiday season and Mattel’s 50th anniversary is Barbie dressed in traditional Islamic garb. In other words, it’s  a “Burqa Barbie” that was “unveiled” last Friday at the Salone dei Cinquecento in Florence, Italy, as reported in the UK’s Daily Mail here (MailOnline). The “Burqa Barbie” is one rendition of about 500 Barbie dolls that are part of an auction benefitting Save the Children Charity.

While there are some who believe that the “Burqa Barbie” represents a celebration of diversity, they either fail to realize (or deliberately mislead people from believing) that Islam teaches women are inferior to men based on the Qu’ran and the teachings of other authoritative texts. It is a well documented and undeniable fact is that Islam oppresses women more than any other “religion,” are considered “possessions,” and are permitted to be beaten by their husbands under Sharia law.

Before falling victim to the fallacy that a burqa-clad Barbie is a positive step toward multiculturalism, consider these examples about the treatment of women, taken directly from the Qu’ran:

Under Islam, women are inferior to men. “…And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them, according to what is equitable; but men have a degree over them…” Sura 2:228

Under Islam, a wife is a possession. “Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet; woman and sons; heaped up hoards of gold and silver; horses…” Sura 3:14

Under Islam, women are unclean. Any man who touches his wife (or any woman) before prayer, he is considered “unclean” for prayer. Approach not prayers… until after washing your whole body if ye are ill or on a journey or ye cometh from the wilderness, or ye have been in contact with a woman…” Sura 4:43

Under Islam, a man may beat his wife as well as withhold relations with her as punishment. “…As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and misconduct, admonish them, refuse to share their beds, beat them…” Sura 4:34

Also under Islam, a woman’s testimony in court is one-half of that of a man’s testimony (Sura 2:282), and she is restricted in divorcing her husband (Sura 66:5). Numerous other examples of the oppressive and brutal treatment of women under Islam exist and are authenticated by Islamic texts and scholars of Islam. Nonetheless, there are those who insist on keeping true Islamic doctrine veiled through deliberate obfuscation or omission of such doctrinal tenets.

The use of an iconic Western figure aimed at children to advance the agenda of an oppressive religion and culture, and desensitize the West to such tenets is a nefariously insidious tactic.

Let’s keep those tenets - and Barbie - unveiled.

DHS appoints Islamic fundamentalists

18 November 2009: There is nothing new here, but it bears more exposure. It is evident that no lessons have been learned by the Fort Hood Islamic terrorist attack, 9/11, or any of the other 14,500 terrorist attacks at the hands of Islamists. The appointments of Muslims who have voiced their support for groups such as Hezbollah continue unabated.

Profile of Major Nidal Malik Hasan

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

11 November 2009: This profile of Nidal Malik Hasan includes his movements up to and including the day of the Fort Hood massacre with pictures of him smiling on 7-11 grocery store closed circuit surveillance cameras on the day of his rampage.   The mysterious visitor to the Hasan apartment on the Tuesday before the tragedy, described by 53-year-old Alice Thompson, manager of the apartment complex where Hasan was a tenant, as dressed in full Muslim attire, may hold the key to how long Hasan planned his killing spree. The 13 dead included to his fellow unarmed soldiers, civilians and an unborn child  at America’s largest military base.

Ft. Hood shooter’s computer reveals al Qaeda connection

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

9 November 2009: According to an intelligence source speaking to the Northeast Intelligence Network, forensic analysis of Nidal Malik HASAN’s computer and other media determined that HASAN had routinely visited al Qaeda and Islamic terrorist web sites in months and weeks leading to last week’s massacre at Fort Hood. According to this investigative source, HASAN also downloaded material from the web site operated by former Dar al Hijrah mosque leader and terrorist facilitator Anwar Nasser al Awlaki. As reported here, al Awlaki was an imam at the Dar al Hijrah mosque in Fall Church, Virginia in 2001, where he advised and facilitated two of the 9/11 terrorists  in the months prior to the attacks. Al Awlaki also counseled HASAN during that same period.

The information obtained from HASAN’s digital files reportedly shows a “pattern of deliberate and willful planning to conduct some type of attack against the U.S. military prior to his deployment” [to Afghanistan], stated this source who requested anonymity as he is not authorized to speak publicly. “The motive behind the massacre appears to be rooted in his ideology, an ideology which was emboldened by online activity,” added this source.

As indicated by a ABC News Online article, intelligence sources reportedly had a level of knowledge that HASAN was in communication with al Qaeda assets abroad. The source speaking to this author confirmed that report but went further, stating that this and information similar but not directly related to such communications became a “political issue” between government agencies and officials “at the policy making levels” of the administration.

According to this source, the now infamous pre-9/11 walls erected within government agencies have returned, “but this time they are higher and stronger.” “There is an unwillingness to address ‘delicate’ intelligence and security matters by sharing information outside of the beltway, and that directive comes right from the top. That’s all I’m going to say right now,” stated this source.

Based on the information provided during this interview, it would appear that intelligence officials were well aware of not only HASAN’s prior associations with known Muslim terrorists, but his current sympathy with anti-American, pro-jihad, al Qaeda ideology and his views about the U.S. military engaging the enemy on Muslim soil.

Ft. Hood killer linked to “facilitator” of 9/11 terrorists

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

8 November 2009: As noted by this author in the initial background profile published just hours after the Ft. Hood massacre here, Nidal Malik HASAN was an active member of the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque and Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia while stationed in the area in 2001. HASAN participated in mosque activities during the summer of 2001, at the same time as Nawaf al-Hamzi and Hani Hanjour, two of the 9/11 hijackers, were active members. The infamous Dar al-Hijrah Mosque has been on the radar of federal investigators and counter-terrorism investigators long before the 9/11 attacks, and has been described as a “hotbed of terrorist activity” by an daralhijrahFBI agent who has been involved in terrorism investigations that specifically included that mosque.[1]

Other terrorist luminaries, including Sheikh Mohammed al-Hanooti, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, previously served as a prayer leader at Dar la-Hijrah. Other notable former mosque members include HAMAS leader Mousa Abu Marzook, Abdurahman Alamoudi, Randall “Ismail”  Royer  (former officials of the Council on American Islamic Relations), Ismail Elbarasse, al Qaeda operative Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, and Abdullah bin Laden, Osama bin Laden’s nephew.

It’s Imam at the time of HASAN’S attendance was Anwar Nasser Aulaqi (a/k/a al-Awlaki), who aided and privately counseled at least three of the 9/11 terrorists in the months prior to the attacks, at the same time HASAN was a member there. The imam is suspected of being a key facilitator and advisor, and possibly even a surviving field commander for the 9/11 [terrorist] cell that hit the Pentagon.[2] Investigation of 9/11 related documents indicate that at least one other 9/11 hijacker was also counseled by Al-Aulaqi while he served as a prayer leader at a San Diego, California mosque.

A federal investigator close to the HASAN investigation, interviewed by this author late yesterday, stated that there is substantial evidence that HASAN “received significant and ongoing spiritual and life counseling” from the imam and terrorist facilitator “at and about the time of the death of his [HASAN"S] mother in May 2001. It is at the time of the extensive interaction with al Aulaqi that HASAN’S colleagues, friends and acquaintances began to notice a difference in HASAN’S behavior and outlook. He became a more devout Muslim, and even more antagonistic to American and Western values.

Meanwhile, former Dar al Hijrah leader, also the subject of a separate federal investigation related to terrorism and money laundering known as Operation Green Quest, remains at large and currently residing in Yemen.

It was revealed that Nidal Malik HASAN was on the radar of authorities at least six months prior to Thursday’s shooting, as a result of his published writings advocating the strategic importance of homicide bombings. While those missives alone should have been sufficient to remove HASAN from his position within the U.S. military, the most basic of background investigations would have revealed HASAN’s direct connection to a key terrorist facilitator and interaction with at least two of the 9/11 hijackers.

The question is why nothing was done.

Media perspective in the Ft. Hood massacre

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

7 November 2009: Consider this:  the murderous actions of Nidal Malik HASAN at Ft. Hood on Thursday resulted in more deaths and injuries in that single attack than in 15 years of violence at abortion clinics in the U.S. and Canada. Two days after the bloodbath at Ft. Hood, government officials from the President to local politicians, the media, their pundits and other experts are publicly cautioning against linking any religious or ideological motives to the actions of Nidal Malik HASAN.

Immediately after the murder of Dr. George Tiller, a noted abortionist at a women’s clinic in Wichita, Kansas on May 31, 2009 and the subsequent arrest of “anti-abortion extremist Scott Roeder,” however, the motives behind the killing of Dr. Tiller were never questioned. Those same politicians and pundits who are currently urging the public not to jump to the conclusion that HASAN’s motives were religious and ideological in nature are the same who immediately concluded that the murder of Dr. Tiller was a result of an anti-abortion extremist.

The blatant hypocrisy does not end there.

Immediately after the arrest of Roeder, some politicians and media pundits declared that the murderous actions of Roeder and all other acts of violence against abortion clinics were fueled by conservative talk show hosts. Those who did not outright advocate some form of censorship of conservative talk radio demanded oversight and accountability to insure that the masses would not be whipped into unrestrained frenzy.

Yet, no one in the media is calling for the same oversight and accountability for the fiery and arguably seditious sermons being delivered at mosques in the U.S. and Canada. Agendas have never been more obvious.

The Ft. Hood co-conspirators

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

6 November 2009: The shooting attack at Ft. Hood Thursday by a Muslim soldier is anything but an isolated incident.  It is the latest in a series of attacks by Muslim soldiers who have violated their oath to protect and defend this country, instead placing their allegiance in the religion, culture and political system known as Islam. Even if it is ultimately determined that Nidal Malik HASAN was the sole perpetrator in this mass murder, there are co-conspirators.

The co-conspirators are each and every politician, policymaker and pundit who has force-fed the American people the lie that Islam “is a religion of peace” or is a “religion hijacked. Whether it is for the shallow purposes of political expediency, political correctness or just plain naiveté, those who espouse and advance this perilous view have their share of innocent blood on their hands.

The latest murderous rampage should be sufficient to illustrate that Islam is totally incompatible with freedom, democracy and Western culture. Faced with the choice between upholding their oath to the United States and advancing Islam by any means possible, it will always be the latter. As soon as people begin to understand and accept this concept, we can better secure our homeland and lower the potential body count of innocent men, women and children.

There are some who contend - with a straight face, no less - that “Post Traumatic Stress Disorder” (PTSD) might be the cause for HASAN’s murder spree. The only “stressors” in this case would result from attempting to reconcile the irreconcilable.

If the mass murder at Ft. Hood yesterday is not convincing enough, how about the March 23, 2003 grenade attack by Muslim Sgt. Hasan Karim Akbar that killed Army Captain Christopher Seifert and Air Force Major Gregory Stone and wounded 14 others? Or the June 1st, 2009 shooting attack at the Little Rock recruiting center by 23 year-old Muslim Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who killed two officers?

Of course, the treachery is not just limited to murder. While serving as a naval signalman on board the USS Benfoldin the months following the attack on the USS Cole, Hassan Abujihaad (a/k/a  Paul R. Hall) actively provided Islamic terrorists with sensitive information about the location of Navy ships and their weaknesses. He also discussed sniper attacks on military personnel and attacks on U.S. military recruitment sites with Muslim terrorists as well. For his crimes, Abujihaad is currently serving a ten-(10) year sentence.

There is also U.S. Army captain James “Yousef” LEE, the former Muslim chaplain charged with espionage while serving at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. YEE was arrested at a U.S. airport on charges of espionage after he was caught in possession of detailed maps of the detention facility along with other classified materials. In addition to YEE, two other Islamic Arabic translators stationed at Guantanamo were convicted of unauthorized possession of classified documents.

Ultimately, the U.S. Army opted not to proceed with the espionage charges against YEE due to national security concerns arising from the evidence that would be made available to the public at the trial.Nonetheless, the facts are the facts.

The common thread here is Islam. Allowing Muslims to serve in the U.S. military in 2009 makes as much sense as if we would have allowed Nazi’s to serve in our armed forces in 1939. It would have been lunacy then, and its lunacy now.

Apparently, the wholesale murder of nearly 3,000 people on 9/11 by Muslim terrorists and the 14,000 terrorist attacks since by Muslim terrorists is not enough to compel politicians or pundits to admit the obvious. It is unlikely that another dozen or so victims will either.

REFERENCED:

Grenade attack against U.S. Soldiers

Sgt. Hasan Karim Akbar (born Mark Fidel Kools)

Akbar was charged in a hand grenade and shooting attack that killed Army Captain Christopher Seifert and Air Force Major Gregory Stone of the 327th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, while wounding 14 other soldiers on March 23, 2003. He was convicted of two counts of premeditated murder and three counts of attempted premeditated murder on April 21, 2005. Notably, during his trial Akbar smuggled scissors out of a conference room, then asked the Military Police Officer guarding him to remove his hand cuffs so he could use the restroom. When the officer removed Akbar’s restraints, he stabbed the officer in the neck and shoulder before being wrestled to the ground by another officer.

He was sentenced to death on April 28, the jury deliberating for around 7 hours. Following an appeal by Akbar, Lieutenant General John Vines, commander of the 18th Airborne Corps, affirmed the death sentence against Akbar on November 20, 2006. News report

Attack on military recruiting office

Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23, (a/k/a Carlos Bledsoe)

June 1, 2009: killed William Long, 24, of Conway, and wounded Quinton Ezeagwula, 18, of Jacksonville at a Litle Rock, AR military recruiting center. Muhammad was under investigation by the FBI, JTTF since his return from Yemen. News report

Espionage

Hassan Abujihaad (a/k/a  Paul R. Hall)

March 2007: Abujihaad was convicted of disclosing the location of Navy ships and their weaknesses to an online forum in April 2001 while serving as a naval signalman on board the USS Benfold. According to federal prosecutors involved in this case, Abujihaad also discussed sniper attacks on military personnel and attacks on U.S. military recruitment sites.

On 5 March, 2008 Abujihaad was convicted by a jury and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

James Yousef LEE

Remember U.S. Army captain James “Yousef” LEE, the former Muslim chaplain charged with espionage while serving at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba? YEE was arrested at a U.S. airport on charges of espionage after he was caught in possession of detailed maps of the detention facility along with other classified materials. In addition to YEE, two other Arabic translators stationed at Guantanamo were also convicted of unauthorized possession of classified documents.

Ultimately, the U.S. Army opted not to proceed with the espionage charges against YEE due to national security concerns arising from the evidence that would be made available to the public at the trial.

“Force Protection Directive” advised increase in security, warned of “complacency”

By Sean Osborne, Assistant Director, Military Affairs Specialist

5 November 2009: A directive labeled “For Official Use Only” was issued to U.S. military bases, operation centers, and other potential targets of terror attacks by US Northern Command’s (NORTHCOM) Joint Operations Center commander General Victor E. Renuart, Jr., in September. General Renuart is also Commander NORAD.  General Renuart’s  directive was issued as a result of recently thwarted domestic Islamic bombing plots, including plots specifically targeting U.S. military installations, and directed all domestic U.S. military installations to re-evaluate their internal security.

According to  General Renuart, the present and most pressing problem facing NORTHCOM is the vulnerability of U.S. facilities to attack and complacency. He stressed that the US military must become smarter at providing security to its bases, noting that the threat to US military installations is real.  The directive is summarized in an article at this link.
