Jihad inside the USA

+ 9/11 und Folgen

It's time to fight back against death threats by Islamic extremists.
A federal law is needed to cover threats against free-speech rights. Across media and geographies, Islamic extremists are increasingly using intimidation to stifle free expression. (LAT, 27 Sept. 2010). A federal law would do two things. First, it would deter violent tactics, by focusing national attention on the problem and invoking the formidable enforcement apparatus of the federal government. Second, its civil damages provision would empower victims of intimidation to act as private attorneys general to defend their rights.

From Suburban Father to a Terrorism Suspect: Faisal Shahzad.
He had obtained citizenship through marriage to a woman, Huma Mian, who was born in Colorado — the authorities say she and their two young children are still in Pakistan, where they believe he was trained in making bombs last year in Waziristan, a tribal area that is a haven for militants.   ...Pakistani officials said Mr. Shahzad was either a son or a grandson of Baharul Haq, who retired as a vice air marshal in 1992 and then joined the Civil Aviation Authority. A Pakistani official said Mr. Shahzad might have had affiliations with Ilyas Kashmiri, a militant linked to Al Qaeda who was formerly associated with Lashkar-e-Taiba, an anti-India militant group once nurtured by the Pakistani state. Mr. Shahzad’s generation grew up in a Pakistan where alcohol had been banned and Islam had been forced into schools and communities as a doctrine and a national glue.... Ms. Mian had just graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a business degree.

Islamische Zensur in den USA: Rückschlag für den Niederländer Geert Wilders: Die Website, auf der er seinen islamkritischen Film zeigen wollte, ist offline. Der US-Provider Network Solutions begründete die Sperrung mit einem Verstoß gegen seine Leitlinien. (Spiegel, 23.3.08). For the past several weeks, anyone typing into their Web browser the URL fitnathemovie.com would have reached only a black screen, an image of the Koran, and the words, "Geert Wilders presents Fitna. Coming Soon." No other pages were accessible. Media reports on the film -- whose title is an Arabic word used in the Koran, translated as "strife" or "ordeal" -- prompted street demonstrations in several Islamic countries, diplomatic protests, and warnings from the Dutch and other European governments about an expected, possibly violent, backlash.(By Patrick Goodenough. CNSNews.com International Editor. March 24, 2008).
Geert Wilders' "Fitna" ist ein direkter Sprung ins Gesicht all jener, die die Probleme leugnen oder auf die lange Bank schieben wollen. Es ist aber kein rassistischer oder blasphemischer Film. Viele moderate Muslime, die selbst die Opfer der Fanatiker sind, werden ihn mit ebensolchem Entsetzen sehen wie säkulare oder christliche Zuschauer. Nur Verdränger haben ein Problem damit, so einen Film zu zeigen...Wilders hat aus Archiven und öffentlich zugänglichen Quellen Dokumente und Zitate des Hasses kompiliert. Wir hören die Opfer aus den Türmen in Manhattan, sehen die aufgebahrten Leichen nach den Anschlägen von Madrid und dazwischen immer wieder die Prediger, die solche Gewalt fordern und rechtfertigen. Wilders zeigt die Bilder von Kindersoldaten und dem dreijährigen Baschmallah, der brav aufsagt, dass die Juden Affen und Schweine sind....Geert Wilders hat kein Symbol des Islams entwürdigt oder herabgesetzt. Es gibt in Fitna - wenn man von einer motivisch genutzten dänischen Karikatur (die Turbanbombe) absieht - keine Verächtlichmachung des Propheten, des Korans oder der gläubigen Menschen. Es ist vielmehr eine sehr geschickte, suggestive Collage des Hasses der Islamisten gegen den Rest der Menschheit. (Nils Minkmar, FAZ, 28.3.08).
FITNA - deutscher Text. Hier der Schluss: Die Regierung besteht darauf, dass Ihr Respekt für den Islam haben sollt aber der Islam hat keinen Respekt vor Euch Der Islam will herrschen, unterwerfen und unsere Westliche Zivilisation zerstören. 1945 hat Europa den Nationalsozialismus besiegt. 1989 hat Europa den Kommunismus besiegt. Jetzt muss die islamische Ideologie besiegt werden. Stoppt die Islamisierung! Verteidigt unsere Freiheit!
Reaktionen auf Wilders-Film (FAZ, 28.3.08).
Islamische Zensur nun auch in England (liveleak.com). "Fitna" aus dem Netz genommen.
Ansgar Graw: Islamismus und Selbstzensur. Der Niederländer Geert Wilders will mit seinem 16-Minuten-Streifen vor einer "Islamisierung der Gesellschaft" warnen. Man hätte das als rechtspopulistischen Alarmismus abtun können, doch ausgerechnet Wilders' nicht islamische Kritiker bestätigen seine Kassandrarufe. Da überbieten sich EU-Gremien und Außenminister in ihrer Klage darüber, dass der Film veröffentlicht werden konnte. Als stelle die Meinungs- und Pressefreiheit die genuine Gefahr für den interreligiösen Dialog und das friedliche Zusammenleben der Menschen dar! Natürlich ist der Film einseitig, weil er nur die negativen Seiten, also den Islamismus, zeigt. Aber er verzichtet auf jedes fiktionale Element und reiht Schlagzeilen, Bilder aus Nachrichtensendungen und Ausschnitte aus Hasspredigten aneinander. Jeder Politiker, der eine solche Provokation im Vorfeld verhindern wollte, scheint zu beweisen, dass sie nötig war. (Welt, 29.3.08).
Christiane Peitz: Wenn Recht wehtut. Leider prägt nicht Freiheitsliebe die Debatte, sondern Angst. Die Fanatiker sollen bloß nicht provoziert werden!  (tgsp, 29.3.08).
Gudrun Eussner: "Wilders, der niederländische anti-islamische Provokateur". Da Geert Wilders in den Massenmedien stereotyp als Rechtspopulist bezeichnet wird - dieses Attribut ist gewissermaßen ein Synonym für Geert Wilders, will ich mich schlau machen, was ein Rechtspopulist ist. -  Ein Israel-Freund!
SPIEGEL INTERVIEW WITH DUTCH POPULIST GEERT WILDERS (31.3.08). 'Moderate Islam Is a Contradiction'. Und hier auf deutsch.

Kathleen Parker: Freedom of sketch. (WP, 04/28/10).
Molly Norris  drew the Prophet Muhammad -- as a spool of thread, a box of pasta, a cup of coffee, a domino, a cherry and a doggie purse. Since depictions of Muhammad aren't allowed under some (but not all) interpretations of Islam, no one knows what he looks like. And, bummer alert, anyone who tries to capture his likeness is subject to punishment by death. The text on Norris's cartoon, a poster calling for a national "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" on May 20, reads: "Will the REAL likeness of the prophet Mohammed please stand up?!"...
Norris was trying to express solidarity with Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the "South Park" creators threatened by a radical Muslim group (or 12 guys and a Web site) offended by a recent episode not depicting Muhammad. Actually, the cartoon Muhammad was wearing a bear costume. One Abu Talhah Al-Amrikee (a.k.a. Zachary Chesser of Virginia) posted a warning on the Revolution Muslim Web site suggesting that Parker and Stone might wind up the way murdered filmmaker Theo van Gogh did. Van Gogh's offense was making a film about Islam's abuse of women. In response to the threat, the bosses at Comedy Central knelt before the altar of -- no joke -- political correctness and censored a subsequent episode, bleeping all mentions of Muhammad, as well as a short segment about fear and censorship.
The truth is that Americans love their free speech and have had enough of those who think they can dictate the limits of that fundamental right. Americans also love humor and the irreverence that underpins the joke.
Norris's cartoon was a fine idea, but she should be relieved of further duty or responsibility. As for the rest of you characters: Draw to any heart's discontent. It's a free country. For now.


Two former Brooklyn residents have been charged with conspiring to provide Al Qaeda with computer advice and other assistance, according to an indictment unsealed Friday in Federal District Court in Manhattan. Prosecutors identified the men as Wesam El-Hanafi, 33, an American citizen, and Sabirhan Hasanoff, 34, a dual citizen of the United States and Australia. The indictment also cited an unidentified co-conspirator, listed only as CC-1. In late 2007, CC-1 paid $50,000 to Mr. Hasanoff, and later had a discussion with both men “about joining Al Qaeda,” the indictment said. Mr. El-Hanafi also directed CC-1 to perform tasks for the terrorist group, it added. In April 2009, Mr. El-Hanafi bought seven Casio digital watches over the Internet, and had them shipped to his home in Brooklyn, the indictment says. The indictment did not elaborate, but in past cases, such watches have been used in connection with improvised explosive devices. (NYT, 05/01/10).


Al Qaeda Ordered N.Y. Subway Plot.
The failed plot to bomb three New York City subway lines during the morning rush last September was hatched in 2008 by two senior Qaeda leaders in the tribal areas of Pakistan, where they met personally with three would-be suicide attackers from Queens to urge them to carry out a strike, federal authorities said Friday.
Zarein Ahmedzay, 25, an Afghan immigrant, pleaded guilty to the bomb plot and other crimes. Mr.
Najibullah Zazi, who moved to Denver from Queens early last year and worked as an airport shuttle bus driver, had pleaded guilty to the same crimes. During his guilty plea, Mr. Ahmedzay, a short, bearded man, quoted from the Koran before describing his role in the bomb plot. Then, appearing at ease, he suggested that a Zionist conspiracy represents a greater threat to the United States than Al Qaeda. “And I believe that the real enemies of this country are the ones destroying this country from within,” he said. “And I believe these are the special group, the Zionist Jews, I believe, who want a permanent shadow government within the government of the United States of America.” The plea by Mr. Ahmedzay leaves Adis Medunjanin, 25, as the only remaining defendant in the case facing trial. (NYT, April 23, 2010).

Army Disinvites Graham to Pentagon Prayer Day. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, April 22, 2010
Evangelist Franklin Graham's invitation to speak at a Pentagon prayer service has been rescinded because his comments about Islam were inappropriate, the Army said Thursday. Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, in 2001 described Islam as evil. More recently, he has said he finds Islam offensive and wants Muslims to know that Jesus Christ died for their sins. Army spokesman Col. Tom Collins said Graham's remarks were ''not appropriate.'' (NYT, 04/22/10).

A Call to Jihad in an American Accent: Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Muslim cleric with an online following and links to several terrorist plots. (NYT, 03/18/2010).
Mr. Awlaki’s says:

"With the American invasion of Iraq and continued U.S. aggression against Muslims, I could not reconcile between living in the U.S. and being a Muslim, and I eventually came to the conclusion that jihad against America is binding upon myself just as it is binding on every other Muslim."

Pakistani Court Charges 5 Americans With Terrorism (NYT, 03/18/2010). The men -- all Muslims from the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia -- pleaded not guilty to a total of five charges, the most severe of which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison, defense lawyer Hasan Dastagir told The Associated Press.The men have been identified as Ramy Zamzam of Egyptian descent, Waqar Khan and Umar Farooq of Pakistani descent, and Aman Hassan Yemer and Ahmed Minni of Ethiopian descent.

Dalia Mogahed, a hijab-clad American Muslim, has made history being the first Muslim woman appointed to a position in President Barack Obama's administration. She sets on a newly-formed interfaith advisory board the administration hopes will improve relations with Muslims in the US and across the globe. She claims: "Islamphobia in America is very real. Gallup finds that Muslims are among the most unfavorably viewed groups in the US and only a little over a third of Americans say they have no prejudice against Muslims. This presents a grave danger to America as a whole. The disease of racism, by definition, is a bias in judgment. This means that racism clouds sound judgment and leads people to make irrational decisions." (islam0nline, 4/28/09).

Alamgir HussainKeith Ellison's offended foot-soldiers and what didn't offend the Muslims? (oen, 31.1.07). Preaching of extreme hatred and violence by the respectable Islamic clerics against the people and society that have offered them a "good life" across Australia and Europe did not offend the Muslims at all. Three former Islamic militants from the Middle East, Walid Shoebat, Kamal Saleem, and Zachariah Anani, now reformed and warning the West of the danger of radical Islam... Let us recall here that the first Muslim congressman Keith Ellison, who created a storm by demanding and persisting on taking oath by the Koran, had excited the Muslims of Dearborn last month (Dec'06) in his mission of instituting justice in America: "You can't back down, you can't chicken out, you can't be afraid, you got to have faith in Allah, and you got to stand up and be a real Muslim."

Lily Mazahery -- Text of Speech Before Members of Congress on International Women's Day Concerning Human Rights Violations of Women in Iran. (April 18, 2006 )

Angst vor Islamisten: Der US-Verlag Random House (Bertelsmann) hat die Auslieferung eines Romans über Mohammeds junge Ehefrau Aisha gestoppt. Jetzt protestieren Intellektuelle wie Salman Rushdie oder der dänische Karikaturist Kurt Westergaard gegen die "Zensur". Nachdem der britische Schriftsteller Salman Rushdie den Stop von "The Jewel Of Medina" ("Das Juwel von Medina") von Sherry Jones durch die Verlagsgruppe Random House als "Zensur aus Angst" kritisiert hatte, sagte der dänische Zeichner Kurt Westergaard am Dienstag der Nachrichtenagentur Ritzau in Kopenhagen: "Leider gibt hier einer der ganz großen Verlage klein bei. Das verheißt nichts Gutes." Die größte Verlagsgruppe der Welt begründete ihren Schritt damit, dass das Buch nach Überzeugung von "glaubwürdigen und voneinander unabhängigen" Experten die Gefühle von Muslimen verletzen und Gewaltakte von Fanatikern auslösen könne. Westergaard meinte dazu: "Die Fanatiker haben gewonnen, wenn wir zurückweichen. Traurig ist das." In Belgrad zog der Beobook-Verlag die schon veröffentlichte serbische Übersetzung als weltweit erste Auslandsausgabe des Buches zurück. Er entschuldigte sich nach Protesten islamischer Organisationen für die "Provokation". (Spiegel, 19.8.08).
Der Münchner Pendo Verlag hat sich die Rechte an der Veröffentlichung des umstrittenen Mohammed-Romans "Aisha. Das Juwel von Medina" in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz gesichert. Das Buch soll im Oktober 2008 erscheinen. (tgsp, 6.9.08).

A worrisome trend: copycat jihadist cells that spring up inside the United States without any concrete connection to Qaeda central or other foreign terror organizations....But for all its efforts, the FBI still has only a handful of Muslim agents and only 40 who are "proficient" in Arabic despite incentive packages that include 25 percent pay hikes for Arabic speakers. (It has been unable to find any agents who are proficient in Urdu and Pashto, the key languages in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where Qaeda leaders are believed to be hiding.)

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, had been taken into custody in Ireland, linked to an alleged plot to kill a cartoonist who satirized the Prophet Mohammed. (WSJ, 03/12/10). Last winter, she began expressing interest in Islam. "Critical Issues Facing Muslim Women," a video, arrived in the mail for her, along with a variety of texts—including, her stepfather said, "The Al Qaeda Reader," a collection of speeches and online postings about jihad. Mr. Mott, a practicing Muslim for decades, said he tried to engage Ms. Paulin-Ramirez, 31,  in conversation about the faith but said she wouldn't talk to him. Ms. Paulin-Ramirez began spending hours and hours online, in Islamic chat rooms still bookmarked on her computer. Then last fall, on a Friday, Sept. 11, Ms. Paulin-Ramirez told her parents she was driving to Denver for the weekend. She left most of the headscarves she had been wearing since announcing her conversion to Islam, her parents say. She took her son. A few weeks later, Ms. Paulin-Ramirez contacted her family from Ireland. Mr. Mott said she told him that she had married the foreigner, an Algerian, she had met online, that they had changed Christian's name to Wahid, and that he was attending a madrassa, or Islamic religious school.

  • Hotair-Blog reports: AUGUST 3, 2007 (Los Angeles, CA) — Jeffrey A. Stern, President and Publisher of Los Angeles-based Bonus Books, Inc., is speaking out about this week’s decision by Cambridge University Press to destroy all unsold copies of their 2006 book, Alms for Jihad, by American authors Robert Collins and J. Millard Burr, in response to a libel action brought against them in British courts by Saudi billionaire Khalid Salim A. Bin Mahfouz. In just one of a series of heavy-handed libel suits against American and British journalists and publishers filed in British courts in recent years, Mahfouz claimed that “Alms for Jihad” wrongly implicates him as having had a significant role in aiding terrorism.

    In a similar attempt to halt the distribution of such claims, libel tourist Bin Mahfouz also filed a libel action in British courts against Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, after Bonus Books published her 2003 book “FUNDING EVIL: How Terrorism is Financed and How to Stop It.” Ehrenfeld, director of the American Center for Democracy, also alleged Bin Mahfouz of backing organizations with alleged ties to terrorism, a charge that Mahfouz, formerly president of the National Commercial Bank of Saudi Arabia, continues to deny. But Ehrenfeld stands behind her research, and publisher Stern stands by his author.

Texas Congressman Ron Paul said in the GOP presidential debate in South Carolina the 9/11 killers were "over here because we are over there," and received 30% approval by FOX-viewers, thus becoming the winner of the debate. (Pittsburg Tribune-Review, May 19, 2007).
Michael Scheuer, the former head analyst at the CIA’s bin Laden unit and author of the books Through Our Enemies Eyes and Imperial Hubris, said “I thought Mr. Paul captured it the other night exactly correctly. This war is dangerous to America because it’s based, not on gender equality, as Mr. Giuliani suggested, or any other kind of freedom, but simply because of what we do in the Islamic World – because ‘we’re over there,’ basically, as Mr. Paul said in the debate.”

UC Davis: 911 Program in Critical Theory

Das Qaida-Video zum siebten Jahrestag der Terroranschläge von 2001 ist ein gruseliges Spektakel. Es war gedacht als Hauptbeitrag der Qaida-Propagandazentrale "al-Sahab" zum diesjährigen Jahrestag der Anschläge von Washington und New York 2001. Eine nie zuvor ausgestrahlte Passage ist das Märtyrer-Abschiedsvideo von Ahmad al-Ghamidi, einem der 19 Attentäter des 11. September. Schon an früheren Jahrestagen hatte al-Qaida Bänder anderer 9/11-Attentäter gezeigt. Sie ähneln sich letztlich alle und bestehen vor allem aus religiösen Rechtfertigungen ("Wenn die islamischen Länder angegriffen werden, ist der Dschihad eine Pflicht") und dem Aufruf, man, möge sich ihnen anschließen. Mit Ausnahme des Qaida-Chefs Osama Bin Laden tauchen fast alle Qaida-Führungspersönlichkeiten, die einen gewissen Rang haben, in dem als Dokumentarfilm getarnten Streifen auf: Aiman al-Sawahiri, die Nummer Zwei, erklärt ausführlich, warum Iran ein Alliierter der USA sei. Abu Yahya al-Libi, ein wichtiger Ideologe, lobt die Mudschahidin in Somalia. Der Chef des Netzwerks in Afghanistan, Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, sagt die Niederlage der USA am Hindukusch voraus. Und zum ersten Mal bekommen die Qaida-Fans bewegte Bilder von dem Vordenker Attiya Allah zu sehen, der, an einem Schreibtisch mit Kaffeetasse sitzend, fast wie ein Geschäftsmann wirkt und die sinkende Zahl von Terroranschlägen im Irak lapidar kommentiert: "So ist das halt: Mal geht es hoch, mal geht es runter."
