Israel welcomes Saudi mufti's pro-Israel remarks, invites him to visit the country

An Israeli minister on Monday welcomed remarks by a mufti of Saudi Arabia that Palestinian resistance group Hamas is a terror organization.

“We congratulate Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, as well as the head of Ulema (Islamic scholars) for his fatwa forbidding the fight against the Jews and forbidding to kill them,” Israeli Communications Minister Ayoub Kara wrote on his official Twitter account.

Congressmen – U.S. Ceding Syria to Iran, Causing Rift With Israel

A large, bipartisan delegation of lawmakers warned the Trump administration on Tuesday that its regional policies are laying the groundwork for Iran to takeover Syria, according to a letter sent to the State Department that urged the administration to present Congress with a plan for combating the Islamic Republic's foothold in the war torn country.

Nearly 50 members of Congress who recently returned from a trip to the Middle East warned Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that Syria is falling into Iran's hands, a situation that has caused anxiety among Israeli leaders, according to a copy of the letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Iranian military force taking shape right under Israel's nose

In the past months, there has been a lot of talk in the media about a possible threat to Israel, if and when Iran establishes permanent bases in Syria. Just last Friday, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported that Iran was building a permanent military base in Syria, very close to Damascus and 50 kilometers from the Golan Heights.

Meanwhile, however, without any public declarations, Iran is quietly recruiting young Syrians to establish a battalion just 30 kilometers from the Israeli border. Meet the Iranian force taking shape right under Israel’s nose.

The 313th Battalion: Waiting for the ‘messiah’

Opposition organizations in southern Syria, one of the rebels’ last strongholds, revealed recently that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards have set up headquarters in the Christian village of Izra in the Daraa Governorate (near the Syria-Jordan-Israel tripoint), to recruit Shiite and possibly members of other pro-Iranian minority groups.

The number 313 is known in Lebanon’s Shiite sector as a magic number. According to tradition in this branch of Islam, 313 is the number of fighters that will arrive with the Mahdi, the Shiite “messiah.” The founders of the 313th Brigade (which is still the size of a battalion) gave it both a messianic number and a messianic name, Ansar al-Mahdi (supporters of the messiah).

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday offered humanitarian assistance to the victims of the devastating earthquake that has killed hundreds in Iran and Iraq, but was immediately rebuffed.

Netanyahu told a gathering of North American Jewish leaders that Israel had offered the aid via the Red Cross, following Sunday’s magnitude 7.3 quake that killed at least 530 people in Iran and several people in Iraq, and injured thousands across the region.

“I just saw the pictures of the destruction in Iran and Iraq from this week’s earthquake. And I saw these heartbreaking images of men and women and children buried under the rubble. So I am proud to announce tonight that a few hours ago I directed that we offer the Red Cross medical assistance for the Iraqi and Iranian victims of this disaster,” Netanyahu told the Jewish Federations of North America’s annual General Assembly in Los Angeles, via videoconference.

After Nyc Terror Attack, Let's Use Common Sense To Protect Ourselves From Radical Islamic Terrorists

FoxnewsLast Tuesday’s attack by a radical Islamic terrorist that took the lives of eight people and injured a dozen in New York City was a startling wake-up call for many Americans.

Such attacks continue across the Atlantic, as well as in Asia and the Middle East, but now this particular brand of violence and murder has once again brought mass casualties to our shores.

But let’s be clear: radical Islamic terrorists have been launching attacks here in the United States for years, with the deadliest occurring on Sept. 11, 2001. These attacks are not going to stop unless we first admit that we have been and are under attack and – finally – take strong steps to prevent further attacks.

For eight years, the Obama administration refused to even use accurate language and terminology to describe what was occurring here in the U.S., as our nation suffered violent assaults in the name of Islam.

President Obama and his team liked to call the radical Islamic terrorists “lone wolves” or say their attacks were “acts of violence,” always avoiding terms focusing on the twisted religious faith that inspired their terrorism.

In fact, more than 200 individuals have been charged with terrorism-related crimes in the U.S. since 2009 – including in Garland, Texas; Boston; Orlando, Riverside, Calif.; and now New York City.

Women Critical For Online Terrorist Networks

” … The new data suggest that women are actually more important than men for the terrorist organization's online war. …”

ShhGiven the brutal version of Islam promoted by the terrorist Islamic State group, which includes whipping—and much worse—for women who so much as show their hair, it may seem strange that many women recruits champion its cause.

Are they more than just tools of propaganda efforts to burnish the IS group’s image? Much more than that, according to a new study of pro–IS groups on social media. The new data suggest that women are actually more important than men for the terrorist organization's online war.

The surprising results also suggest a new way to fight groups like the IS group online, says Karl Rethemeyer, a political scientist at the State University of New York at Albany, who specializes in social networks but wasn’t involved in the new study. “Counterterrorism authorities may want to use gender” as a shortcut for identifying key people in the propaganda networks, he suggests.

Surprise! Study Shows Islamic Terrorism Is Islamic

” … The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers, drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam … “

DUAWestern leaders insist that Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam. Evidence to the contrary appeared again this week from Mohamad Jamal Khweis, an ISIS recruit from the United States who said in a 2016 interview with Kurdistan24, “Our daily life was basically prayer, eating and learning about the religion for about eight hours.” Khweis was sentenced to 20 years in prison on October 27 for providing material support to ISIS, according to CBS News.

As early as 2001, immediately after 9/11, then-President George W. Bush gave a speech in which he claimed that in the United States, the terrorist acts in which over 3,000 people were killed “violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith” and that “Islam is peace”.

Twelve years and many spectacular terrorist attacks later, in 2013, when two jihadists murdered Lee Rigby in broad daylight …

Don't Tell The Children

” … With relatively few exceptions, they've been told over and over, by teachers and the media and our presidents (first Bush, then Obama), that Islam is a Religion of Peace, that Muslims who commit acts of terrorism in the name of Allah have misunderstood the faith, and that the overwhelming majority of Muslims love peace and freedom and entirely abhor acts of terror …”

Don't Tell The ChildrenIn recent years, a growing focus of my concern has been the staggering ignorance of millions of young Americans when it comes to certain fundamental and crucially important matters. One of those matters is the evil of Communism: just the other day came news of a report showing that roughly half of young Americans would prefer to live under that system, a clear indication that their history teachers have entirely misinformed them on the topic.

Another, related matter is the greatness of America: again, history teachers are at fault, having played up the horrors of slavery, the mistreatment of American Indians, and the debacle of Vietnam (so that some kids actually think America is uniquely evil) while soft-pedaling our nation's role as a revolutionary beacon of freedom, fortress of democracy, and guarantor of world order.

Then there's Islam. As 9/11 has receded year by year into history, kids who weren't even born at the time, or who were just infants, have grown into young adults. And during all these years, while America has fought wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and Muslim terrorists have created chaos and taken lives in major cities around the world, what have these kids learned about Islam?

With relatively few exceptions, …

President Donald Trump's Comments on NYC Attack

President Donald J. Trump‏ on last night's truck-ramming terror attack by ISIS-adherent in New York City
(from his verified Twitter account @realDonaldTrump)

In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!

We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere. Enough!

 

NYC jihad mass murderer entered US via Diversity Visa Program

“NYC Foreign Terror Suspect Entered U.S. with ‘Diversity Visa’ Trump Wants to End,” by John Binder, Breitbart, October 31, 2017:
