UNRWA must be shut down. If it continues after this, the entire UN should be shut down.

“More than 30 of UNRWA’s employees actively participated in October 7,” Jerusalem Post, February 16, 2024:

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced on Friday the details of 12 UNRWA employees who are members of Hamas and participated in the October 7 massacre.

Gallant told reporters that Israel has intelligence that more than 30 of the organization’s employees actively participated in the murder spree, assisting in the kidnapping of civilians and soldiers.

He presented data, according to which 12% of the 13,000 UNRWA employees are connected to terrorist organizations in Gaza, and 1,468 of the employees are even active in them.

Gallant presented a video to the reporters taken by security cameras at the Erez crossing on October 7, in which you can see how the medics of the Palestinian “Red Crescent” helped to evacuate a wounded Nukhba terrorist.

The UNRWA employees hold various innocuous positions in the organization from social worker to school counselor, to math teacher….

Dearborn, MICHIGAN Named ‘America’s Jihad Capital,’ Mayor and Biden Respond About the Way You’d Expect

AP Photo/John Locher
The Wall Street Journal did everyone a service Friday by publishing an op-ed entitled “Welcome to Dearborn, America’s Jihad Capital: Imams and politicians in the Michigan city side with Hamas against Israel and Iran against the U.S.” This was an eyebrow-raising exposition by Steven Stalinsky of the indispensable Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) of how numerous Islamic leaders and other public figures in Dearborn have openly supported Hamas, which the State Department still officially considers to be a jihad terror group. Instead, however, of concern about open support for terror in Dearborn, the article has given rise to concerns — expressed even by the Biden regime — about “Islamophobia.” 

The whole incident has been an illustration of how stigmatized honest discussion about the jihad threat has become in the U.S. today, after well over twenty years of relentless propaganda from government and law enforcement officials, as well as from the establishment media, about how such discussion is an unacceptable manifestation of hate. Stalinsky himself, after the firestorm began, was put into the unenviable position of having to insist, “Nothing in my article was written to instigate any sort of hate.”

Indeed, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t any hate in the article. It was just all coming from the other side. Stalinsky’s article notes that “a local headline describing an Oct. 10 event at the Ford Performing Arts Center read, "Michigan rally cheers Hamas attack.’” He shows Imam Imran Salha of the Islamic Center of Detroit in Dearborn calling for the “demise” of Israel, which, if it ever happened, would result in the murders of millions of Israelis.

Stalinsky also points out that another Dearborn-area imam, Usama Abdulghani, “called Oct. 7 ‘one of the days of Allah’ and a ‘miracle come true.’ He described the attackers as ‘honorable.’ He said they were ‘lions’ defending ‘the entire nation of Muhammad the messenger.’” Also, “the Islamic Center of America, a leading Dearborn mosque, held a memorial service on Dec. 30 for a Hezbollah operative killed in an Israeli airstrike. 

The Hadi Institute, which runs an Islamic Montessori school and bills itself as a youth community center, held a “Commemoration of the Martyrs” on Jan. 5. This event honored Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, leader of the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces in Iraq.” All this and more, Stalinsky says, makes for “a moment for counterterrorism officials to be concerned.”

There is, however, no indication that they are. The Journal’s article has enraged city officials, not because the city is a hotbed of support for jihad violence, but because it has been exposed as such. Dearborn Mayor Abdullah Hammoud, whose most self-righteous victimhood mode is fully activated, announced Saturday: “Effective immediately - Dearborn police will ramp up their presence across all places of worship and major infrastructure points." This is a direct result of the inflammatory @WSJ opinion piece that has led to an alarming increase in bigoted and Islamophobic rhetoric online targeting the city of Dearborn. Stay vigilant.” 

This was pure grandstanding. There had been no threats anywhere in Dearborn; if there had been, Hammoud certainly would have said so. He was simply indulging in the left’s tried-and-true propaganda technique of equating dissident speech with violence and treating it as incitement (while steadfastly ignoring actual calls for violence and real attacks committed by leftists).

And if any leftists are claiming victimhood and accusing their opponents of “hate speech,” Old Joe Biden can’t be far away. The leftist wonk who runs his X account declared on Sunday, “Americans know that blaming a group of people based on the words of a small few is wrong. That’s exactly what can lead to Islamophobia and anti-Arab hate, and it shouldn’t happen to the residents of Dearborn – or any American town. We must continue to condemn hate in all forms.”

Whoever was putting this unctuous and hypocritical twaddle into hateful Old Joe’s mouth didn’t mention the WSJ article, but that was the only instance of “Islamophobia” the noble people of Dearborn are dealing with, so his intention was unmistakable. It’s unusual for the president of the United States, even a figurehead like Old Joe, to comment on a newspaper article that has nothing to do with himself or his policies, but the Biden regime is deeply worried about the defection of the Muslim bloc from the left’s coalition over the regime’s putative support for Israel. And so Old Joe and his henchmen are playing the “Islamophobia” card wherever and whenever they can.

Amid all this controversy, one question remains unanswered and totally ignored: is Dearborn really America’s jihad capital? Should its mayor be more concerned about that than about clamping down on criticism? The consequences of ignoring that question, after all, could be explosive.

Harvard to feature speaker who blamed Israel for Hamas’ Oct. 7 jihad massacre

First, Harvard’s former president refused to say that calls for a new genocide of the Jews would violate campus rules. And now this. Clearly, Jew-hatred has become the norm at Harvard, and among the leftist intelligentsia in general.

“Harvard to host Palestinian prof who blamed Israel for Oct. 7, called attacks ‘normal human struggle,'” by Chris Pandolfo, Fox News, February 3, 2024:

Harvard University has invited a controversial Palestinian professor to speak who justified the October 7 Hamas terror attacks on Israel as a “normal human struggle for freedom.”

Dr. Dalal Saeb Iriqat, a columnist and associate professor at the Arab American University Palestine, is scheduled to speak at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs on March 7 for a seminar series called “Middle East Dialogues.”

The Belfer Center website describes the “Middle East Dialogues” seminars as “a series of frank, open, and probing encounters with vital and varied perspectives on the current conflict, its causes, and the prospects for peace and progress in the region.”

Iriqat is a controversial figure who has made statements downplaying the Hamas attack on Israel and blaming the Israeli government for the bloodshed on October 7, when 1,200 people were killed after Hamas terrorists infiltrated the country.

“Today is just a normal struggle 4 #Freedom,” Iriqat posted on X on Oct. 7, as Israelis near the border with Gaza cowered in their homes while terrorists went door-to-door butchering people.

In the face of criticism for her post, Iriqat doubled down and blamed Israel for the attacks the next day.

“We will never forgive the Israeli right wing extreme government for making us take their children and elderly as hostages,” she posted on "X."

“The Israeli public need to realize that their own government had caused all this bloodshed and they remain the ones responsible for this escalation and losses of civilian lives.”…

Hamas rejects key elements of truce offer, demands release of jihad mass murderer Barghouti

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2024/02/hamas-rejects-key-elements-of-truce-offer-demands-release-of-jihad-mass-murderer-barghouti#; republished below in full, unedited, for informational, educational, & research purposes:

Islamic law stipulates that “if Muslims are weak, a truce may be made for ten years if necessary, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce with the Quraysh for that long, as is related by Abu Dawud” (‘Umdat as-Salik, o9.16).

Note that this can only be done if “Muslims are weak.” The same legal manual also quotes this verse of the Qur’an: “So do not be fainthearted and call for peace, when it is you who are the uppermost” (47:35). So Hamas would not want a truce at all if it believed that it was in a position of strength. “Interests that justify making a truce are such things as Muslim weakness because of lack of numbers or materiel, or the hope of an enemy becoming Muslim…” (‘Umdat as-Salik, o9.16).

The bottom line: Hamas is feeling the heat and wants a truce in order to regroup and emerge in a stronger position. But Western analysts do not know or care about what Islamic law says, and so Hamas feels free to issue demands even from its position of weakness, aware of how much pressure Israel is under from the Biden regime and others who desperately want it to allow Hamas to live and kill Israeli civilians on another day.

“Hamas seems to rule out key points of truce offer, wants release of Marwan Barghouti,” Times of Israel, February 2, 2024:

Hamas officials said Friday that the group is studying a proposed ceasefire deal that would include prolonged pauses in fighting in Gaza and swaps of Israeli hostages for Palestinian prisoners, but at the same time appeared to rule out some of its key components.

Hamas politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh held a phone call with Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Ziad Nakhaleh to discuss the deal, the Gaza-ruling terror group announced. According to a statement from Haniyeh’s office, the two agreed any deal with Israel for the release of hostages must be accompanied by a complete halt to the fighting, the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza, ending the blockade, reconstruction of the Strip and the freeing of Palestinian security prisoners.

Such steep demands would seem to be non-starters for Israel.

Meanwhile Osama Hamdan, a senior Hamas official in Beirut, also said the group remains committed to its initial demands for a permanent ceasefire that would end the war. Hamdan also said the group seeks the release of thousands of Palestinian prisoners being held for acts related to the conflict with Israel, including those serving life sentences.

He mentioned two by name, including Marwan Barghouti, a popular Palestinian leader seen as a unifying figure. Barghouti was arrested by Israel in 2002 and is serving five life terms for planning three terror attacks that killed five Israelis during the Second Intifada….

Mayor ramps up security after Dearborn is dubbed ‘America’s jihad capital,’ whines about ‘Islamophobic rhetoric’

Abdullah Hammoud is in full victimhood mode, complaining about “Islamophobic rhetoric,” but note what he isn’t doing: he isn’t saying that the Wall Street Journal article is false. Nor is he addressing the contention that Dearborn is America’s jihad capital. Instead, he is deflecting attention away from the claims in the article by claiming, without a shred of evidence, that the article endangers places of worship and major infrastructure points in Dearborn. One might almost get the impression that he doesn’t want to address the problem of jihad activity in Dearborn. How strange!

“Michigan city ramps up security after op-ed calls it ‘America’s jihad capital,'” Associated Press, February 4, 2024:

DEARBORN, Mich. — Dearborn, Michigan, is ramping up its police presence in response to fallout from an opinion piece that described the city, which has the nation’s highest Muslim population per capita, as “America’s jihad capital.”

Dearborn Mayor Abdullah Hammoud on Friday tweeted that city police increased security at places of worship and major infrastructure points as a “direct result” of a Wall Street Journal opinion piece titled, “Welcome to Dearborn, America’s Jihad Capital.”

Hammoud posted on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter, that the item published Friday “led to an alarming increase in bigoted and Islamophobic rhetoric online targeting the city of Dearborn.”

Steven Stalinsky, executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute, who authored the opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal, said in an interview with The Associated Press that he wanted to draw attention to protests in Michigan and elsewhere across the U.S. in which people have expressed support for Hamas since the start of the war with Israel….

“Nothing in my article was written to instigate any sort of hate,” Stalinsky said. “This is a moment for counterterrorism officials to be concerned.”…

In a tweet referencing Dearborn on Saturday, President Joe Biden condemned “hate in all forms.”

“Americans know that blaming a group of people based on the words of a small few is wrong,” Biden’s post read. “That’s exactly what can lead to Islamophobia and anti-Arab hate, and it shouldn’t happen to the residents of Dearborn – or any American town.”

Shut it down: 3,000 UNRWA teachers praised bloodthirsty Oct. 7 jihad murderers

Why should this pro-jihad organization receive a penny from the U.S. or anyone else?

“UN’s Palestinian teachers are EXPOSED as Hamas-loving jihadis: Congress learns of Telegram club of 3,000 educators praising ‘holy warriors’ who left Israelis ‘dead in hell’ on Oct. 7,” by James Reinl, Daily Mail, January 30, 2024:

UN aid chiefs in Gaza faced mounting pressure on Tuesday, with revelations that 3,000 of their Palestinian teachers shared messages supporting Hamas militants as they raped and murdered civilians in Israel on Oct 7.

Hillel Neuer, the director of UN Watch, which monitors the UN, told Congress about his probe into a Telegram channel for UN teachers in Gaza that was filled with posts by members praising the bloodbath.

The hearing came in the wake of revelations that 12 employees of the UN’s Palestinian aid agency, UNRWA, took part in abductions and killings on Oct 7, prompting the US and others to halt funds for the agency.

Neuer on Tuesday told the House subcommittee that the disgraced UN agency should be permanently ‘dissolved.’

"It's time to stop pretending that UNRWA is at all fixable,’ said Neuer.

‘The very existence of a Telegram group of 3,000 teachers in which members celebrate Hamas atrocities is but a symptom of the core problem of UNRWA: its true purpose is to undo the 1948 creation of Israel.’

His investigation dug into a Telegram chat group used by UNRWA teachers for sharing files, staff names, and curriculum materials.

But it was also replete with posts celebrating Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel, praising the terrorists who raped and murdered civilians as ‘heroes.’

Users on the channel glorified the ‘education’ the terrorists received, shared photos of dead or captured Israelis, and called for hostages to be executed.

Some comments were posted within minutes of Hamas militants beginning their wave of rapes, murders, and kidnappings on Oct 7.

Safaa Mohammad Al Najjar, a group administrator, praised the act of 'resistance' and the ‘holy warriors’ who broke into Israeli territory.

She decorated her texts with a red heart emoji.

Another member of the group commented on a photo of a dead Hamas fighter.

‘Our martyrs are in heaven,’ he wrote, adding that Israel’s ‘dead are in hell.’

Users also regularly share videos, photos, and messages inciting ‘Jihadi terrorism’ and openly celebrate the massacre and rape of civilians by Hamas terrorists, Neuer told the panel….

You Won’t Believe What This Wisconsin Imam Preached

On second thought, you probably will.

Imam Alhagie Jallow is a pillar of the community in Madison, Wisc. He has been a guest of Gov. Tony Evers and is happy to meet with non-Muslims who are interested in learning about Islam. After the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre in Israel, however, Jallow showed a different side, one that authorities in Wisconsin would do well to note carefully. Will they? Unlikely. That would be “Islamophobic.” But this is serious nevertheless.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) on Friday posted excerpts from a hair-raising Friday sermon Jallow preached at the Madinah Community Center in Madison six days after the massacres in Israel. This imam who, according to the Madinah Community Center website, “meets with non-Muslims to help grow an understanding of the Islamic religion,” offered a revealing glimpse of what all too many Muslims, including Jallow himself, think the Islamic religion is all about, and it likely differs markedly from the soothing version he presents to inquirers.

Jallow offered a vision of jihad as warfare that differed sharply from the “spiritual struggle” line that Islamic spokesmen and apologists in the West much more frequently provide. And while we have been told again and again that the overwhelming majority of Muslims in the U.S. reject terrorism, this is what Jallow had to say less than a week after a terror group carried out an appalling series of mass killings: “We neglected the principle of support, which is jihad for the sake of Allah.” “Jihad for the sake of Allah” (jihad fi sabil Allah) in Islamic theology refers specifically to warfare to advance the hegemony of Islamic law over lands where it is not currently in force.

The learned imam, who was born in Gambia and earned a degree in Islamic law from the Islamic University of Imam Muhammad bin Saud in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, went on to exhort his hearers to take up arms in the cause of Islam: “Allah said in the Quran: ‘Fight in the path of Allah those who fight against you.’” Those who believe in this as a command from the supreme being “will fight, they will defend their religion, they will defend their land, not with their tongues, but with their blood.” He added, “Each one of us should be a soldier today. So I… You know jihad… They will try everything, but it’s only jihad that can bring victory not contracts, not agreements, not alliances – not all of these things.”

Jihad, said Jallow, was essential: “The only thing that can bring glory to this Islamic nation is the jihad, which is mentioned in the Quran and the hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad. The only thing that can bring honor and glory to this nation is Jihad.” On Oct. 7, the Hamas jihadis had gained this glory. He continued, “Our brothers in Gaza are heroes! By Allah, they are warriors, heroes, they are men, just like the Companions,” that is, Muhammad’s circle of followers. “They do not fear death.”

Investigative journalist Daniel Greenfield pointed out Sunday that all this is vastly different from what Jallow has said publicly before. In 2016, Greenfield noted, Jallow was reported as having said that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism: Jallow “said terrorist attacks carried out across the globe by those who identify as Muslim are not acts of Islam.”

The report depicted Jallow laying it on thick: “Islam condemns the killing of human beings, he said. Jallow quoted a verse from the Quran which is translated as: ‘If a person saves one soul, the reward is for saving the whole world. And if you kill one soul, the consequences and punishment for that is as if you killed the whole world.’”

But after Oct. 7, Jallow cried out: “Oh Jews, you unjust, criminal, corrupt oppressors – stop! You will all most definitely be killed. The Jews, the aggressors, the evil… You describe them, what they do. By Allah, all of them will be killed by Muslims. They all will be executed by Muslims. They will all be killed, this is a divine promise that will inevitably be fulfilled. This is a promise from Allah and it is going to happen. They will all be killed. They will all be killed, and on that day, the believers will rejoice in Allah’s victory.”

Is that a call for genocide? It sure looks like one. If a Christian preacher had said anything like this, you can bet it would have been taken for one. But what’s even more remarkable is that it has been four days now since MEMRI’s clips from Jallow’s sermon were published, and yet no reporter seems to have asked him about these bloodthirsty words. He has had to offer no explanation, much less a retraction. No one cares.

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D-What Did You Expect?), invited Jallow to the Executive Residence in May to celebrate the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. Will Evers be asked to apologize and repudiate Jallow? Come on, man! This isn’t a Republican governor we’re talking about. Evers is more likely to bring Jallow back to the mansion and give him an award.

Biden Regime to List Houthis as ‘Terrorists’ While Still Making It Legal to Fund Them

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2024/01/biden-regime-to-list-houthis-as-terrorists-while-still-making-it-legal-to-fund-them; republished below in full, unedited, for informational, educational, & research purposes:

Houthi-linked figures will also be allowed to come to America.

When Biden decided to take the Houthis off the Foreign Terrorist Organization list, under the false flag of a “famine” that (like the Hamas Gaza ‘famine’) was a propaganda ploy from the Iranian-backed terrorists themselves, he helped pave the way for the current Red Sea crisis.

And even now, rather than putting the Houthis back on the FTO list, he’s moving them to the specially designated global terrorist list.

Most people don’t know the difference, but it’s a huge one. It’s illegal to fund FTO terrorists. The Biden administration has the power to freeze SDGT assets, but there are no penalties for providing material support.

And there’s no automatic travel ban on the terrorists.

Here’s what an FTO designation can mean.

  • It is a crime for a person in the United States or subject to the jurisdiction of the United States to knowingly provide “material support or resources” to or receive military-type training from or on behalf of a designated FTO.
  • Representatives and members of a designated FTO, if they are aliens, are inadmissible to and, in certain circumstances removable from, the United States.
  • Except as authorized by the Secretary of the Treasury, any U.S. financial institution that becomes aware that it has possession of or control over funds in which an FTO or its agent has an interest must retain possession of or control over the funds and report the funds to Treasury.

Biden has decided to protect financial institutions moving money for the Houthis and to allow Houthi-linked figures to come to America and to allow terrorist supporters in America to provide aid to the terrorists.

Biden could put an end to this, instead he’s letting it drag on with ‘warnings’, limited strikes and an SDGT designation that sounds impressive, but is basically a set of sanctions, all in the hopes that the Houthis will feel pressured enough to stop.

The Islamic terror group whose motto includes “Death to America” is not stopping. It and its Iranian masters see how weak Biden is.

“Pro-ISIS Posters Incite Attacks On New York City: ‘Go Get Them, Oh Monotheist,'” MEMRI, January 11, 2024:

The following report is now a complimentary offering from MEMRI’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here.

On January 11, 2024, a pro-Islamic State (ISIS) media outlet released two posters inciting attacks in New York City. The posters came as part of a global attack campaign called, “And Kill Them Wherever You Find Them,” announced on January 4 by the ISIS spokesman. In an audio message uploaded online, he declared support for the Muslims of Gaza and urged ISIS operatives and supporters to launch attacks globally, including lone wolf attacks, in the West.

“Identify The Target, Trust In Allah, And Execute”

Titled “And Kill Them Wherever You Find Them,” the first poster depicts an armed man, three bullets, and a sketch of a building. A stamp on the poster reads: “NEW YORK N.Y. JUN16 7-PM 1937.” Adjacent to the stamp, an entry ticket reads: “AROUND THE WORLD.”

Text on the poster also encourages potential attackers: “Identify the target, trust in Allah, and execute [the attack],” it reads.

“Go Get Them, Oh Monotheist”

The second poster depicts the New York City skyline in flames, and an armed man brandishing a weapon alongside text inciting an attack, which reads: “Go get them, oh monotheist.”

The poster also features an excerpt from the spokesman’s January 4 audio address, which calls on ISIS operatives and supporters to avenge Muslims by carrying out attacks on “Jews, Christians, or their allies on the streets and roads of America, Europe, and the world.”

The text reads: “Lions of Islam: Chase your prey whether Jews, Christians, or their allies, on the streets and roads of America, Europe, and the world. Break into their homes, kill them and steal their peace of mind by any means you can lay hands on. Understand that you are the arm of the Islamic State hitting in the unbelievers’ homelands, and are avenging the Muslims in Palestine, Iraq, Syria, and other Muslim countries. Solidify your plans and diversify the attacks: detonate explosives, burn them with grenades and fiery agents, shoot them with bullets, cut their throats with sharp knives, and run them over with vehicles. A sincere person will not lack the means to draw blood from the hearts of the Jews, the Christians, and their allies, and thus ease the suffering in the hearts of the believers.”

The mullahs know the Biden regime is weak and so treasonous and appeasement-minded that it just sent them $10 billion. So they know that the U.S. will do nothing.

“‘Unauthorized’ men in military garb take over contentious oil tanker in Gulf of Oman — one day after Houthi rebels strike in full-scale drone, missile attack,” Associated Press, January 11, 2024:

Iran’s navy seized an oil tanker on Thursday in the Gulf of Oman that once was at the center of a major crisis between Tehran and Washington, officials said, a seizure that further escalates tensions in the Mideast waterways.

The vessel was once known as the Suez Rajan and was involved in a yearlong dispute that ultimately saw the U.S. Justice Department seize 1 million barrels of Iranian crude oil on it.

The seizure also comes after weeks of attacks by Yemen’s Iranian-backed Houthi rebels on shipping in the Red Sea, including their largest barrage ever of drones and missiles launched late Tuesday.

That has raised the risk of possible retaliatory strikes by U.S.-led forces now patrolling the vital waterway, especially after a United Nations Security Council vote on Wednesday condemning the Houthis and as American and British officials warned of potential consequences over the attacks.

Iran’s state-run television acknowledged the seizure late Thursday afternoon, hours after armed men boarded it.

The oil tanker was boarded in the Gulf of Oman by “unauthorized” people in military uniforms early on Thursday morning.

“The violating oil tanker Suez Rajan … stole Iranian oil by leading it to the Americans and delivered it to the Americans,” state TV said.

It said Iran’s navy, rather than its paramilitary Revolutionary Guard, conducted the seizure….

Biden administration leaves Nigeria off religious freedom violator list despite Muslim genocide of Christians

It doesn’t matter to Joe Biden that a genocide is being waged by jihadists against Christians in Nigeria. Emeka Umeagbalasi, the director of the “Catholic-inspired think tank” Intersociety in Nigeria, recently accused the Nigerian government of “encouraging bloodshed” and “complicity in the killing of Christians by jihadist forces”; yet the Biden administration continues to turn a blind eye.

The Open Doors World Watch List, however, identifies Nigeria as sixth among the world’s worst countries for extreme Christian persecution.

“Religious freedom groups criticize Biden admin. for leaving Nigeria off violators list,” by Ryan Foley, Christian Post, January 8, 2024:

Religious freedom advocacy groups are criticizing the Biden administration for leaving Nigeria off the U.S. State Department list of the world’s worst violators of religious freedom despite constant attacks and violence impacting Christian communities.

The U.S. State Department released its annual list of Countries of Particular Concern Thursday, a label assigned to nations that have “engaged in or tolerated particularly severe violations of religious freedom.”

Nigeria was absent from the list for the third year in a row, although the Nigerian Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram was listed under the category of “Entities of Particular Concern.” In 2020, Nigeria was added to the CPC list by the Trump administration but was removed during the first year of the Biden administration….

On Friday, December 29th, in coordination with the Middle East Forum, this author took a delegation of five leaders from the local community to meet with the General Manager of the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Hotel & Convention Center, Mark Cherry. It was our goal to convince Mr. Cherry to cancel a conference and bazaar the center was to host a couple weeks later (January 12-13), organized by the South Florida Muslim Federation (SFMF), an umbrella organization for South Florida’s many radical Muslim groups. With the help of a public outcry, our mission was a success.

We had several concerns about this conference taking place, starting with SFMF itself.

Right after the October 7 massacre of over 1200 Israelis perpetrated by Hamas – literally on the same day as the attack – SFMF asked its followers on social media to donate funds to Gaza via the US chapter of Islamic Relief, a group that has been banned by a number of nations. Israel has labeled Islamic Relief a front for Hamas and previously arrested its Gaza leader. And regarding its US chapter, IRUSA, its ex-Chairman Khaled Lamada tweeted that it is “absurd” to classify Hamas “as a terrorist organization” and used his social media to promote Hamas.

Islamic Relief was to be the main sponsor (“Premier Sponsor”) of the SFMF conference.

The President of SFMF is Samir Kakli. He took over the job from Nezar Hamze, a former representative for the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is a member organization of SFMF.

In June 2020, Kakli promoted the Palestinian “Day of Rage,” large-scale protests that resulted in violence against Jews. In October 2020, he called for the release from prison of leaders of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), who were convicted of raising millions of dollars for Hamas. In December 2022, he questioned Israel’s nationhood, posting on Facebook, “[T]heir ‘nation’ is built on lies and fantasy.”

SFMF and its leader Kakli have both promoted events run by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), a group that was recently banned from operating in Florida universities for its declared alliance with Hamas. In May 2022, SFMF co-sponsored an anti-Israel rally with SJP. During the rally, Kakli and others called for Israel’s destruction with shouts of “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” and “Death to Israel.”

We also had concerns about many of the speakers for the SFMF conference.

One conference speaker, Naima Khan-Ghany, was recently removed from the two committees she served on in the Broward County School Board, as a result of her making numerous anti-Semitic posts on social media. One post referred to Jews as being “Satanic.”

Another speaker, social media influencer Yasemin Kanar, a.k.a. The Real Yaz, three days after October 7, stated, “[A]ll of Hollywood is run by Zionist Jews and promoting pedophilia.” Kanar, as well, praised Hamas. She further posted, on her Twitter account, a video claiming the documented rapes committed by Hamas are fake. And she posted a video of rabid anti-Semite Lucas Gage saying, “You guys don’t know what Jewish supremacists will do to push a narrative. They will lie. They are called the ‘Masters of Lies’ for a reason… [E]veryone’s starting to see it, maybe our ancestors are right, maybe antisemitism isn’t this irrational hatred.”

Yet another speaker, founder and Imam of the Darul Uloom Institute (DUI) Shafayat Mohamed, was thrown off several Broward County boards for his vile rhetoric against the LGBTQ community, including claiming that natural disasters are caused by gay sex.

Our meeting with Marriott GM Mark Cherry lasted just over an hour. For the meeting, my non-profit, the Joe Kaufman Security Initiative, had created a 30-page PowerPoint presentation to show to Mr. Cherry. It contained all of the evidence against SFMF and its event speakers – their extensive and documented support for Hamas and an extreme hostility of Jews that went way beyond hatred of Israel.

The PowerPoint began with a page containing graphic images from the October 7 atrocities – a rape victim and bloodied and burned bodies. We felt it necessary to display these images, in order to convey the barbaric cruelty which was being justified by the SFMF speakers.

Well into the meeting, Mr. Cherry informed us of the fact that SFMF had already used his facility a number of times in the past and that the contract for the upcoming conference had been signed a year in advance. He also indicated that he shared our concerns regarding the material we were presenting to him.

This author also provided information showing that other hotels, including Marriotts, had recently cancelled similar conferences, due to issues related to safety and security. Given the anti-Semitic atmosphere following October 7 and given the terrorist element shadowing the SFMF event, I suggested he consider doing the same.

Following our Marriott meeting, an article that I had written regarding the situation was published in the Middle East Forum’s Focus on Western Islamism, titled ‘Coral Springs Marriott Set to Host Florida Gathering of Hamas Sympathizers.’ The piece sparked a public outcry from the community. Phone calls were made, including by city officials, emails were sent, and petitions were signed in the thousands.

The result of all of this was the Coral Springs Marriott’s cancellation of the SFMF conference.

The threats posed by the individuals and groups involved in this conference must be considered detrimental to both the local community and national security interests, especially in light of the current elevated threat levels, both in the US and abroad. As FBI Director Christopher Wray stated to the House Committee on Homeland Security, this past November, “[W]e cannot – and do not – discount the possibility that Hamas or another foreign terrorist organization may exploit the current conflict to conduct attacks here, on our own soil.”

Mr. Cherry and, by extension, the Marriott Hotel administration, are to be commended for taking the courageous step of refusing to let their facilities be used by pro-Hamas individuals and groups to promote jihad and the hatred of Jews. By canceling the SFMF event, they have helped protect the community and shown themselves to be on the ‘right side of history.’

Mark Cherry and the Marriott Corporation deserve everyone’s thanks.

Hamas Insists It Will Try Again, and Again, to ‘Obliterate’ Israel

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2024/01/hamas-insists-it-will-try-again-and-again-to-obliterate-israel#; republished below in full, unedited, for informational, educational, & research purposes:

Many in the Western world remain unconvinced that Hamas will keep trying, for as long as it takes, to “obliterate” Israel, as it committed to doing in its 1988 Charter. They should look at the evidence, which is offered here: “Hamas Says It Wants Oct. 7 Massacre Again and Again… Why Won’t the Media Believe Them?,” by January 3, 2024:

Not long after Hamas terrorists invaded southern Israel to rape and massacre scores of civilians before dragging hundreds of hostages back to the Gaza Strip, senior Hamas leader Ghazi Hamad spoke with Lebanese news outlet LBCI.

During the interview, Hamad said: “Israel is a country that has no place on our land,” explaining that it was the job of Hamas to “remove that country.”

Questioned about the October 7 atrocities, Hamad responded:

“We must teach Israel a lesson, and we will do this again and again.

Apparently Israel has learned a different lesson from what Ghazi Hamad has in mind, which is the absolute necessity of eradicating Hamas as a military threat. Unlike previous Israeli campaigns in Gaza, that left Hamas still standing, this one will continue until the terror group has been completely dismantled. Already the IDF says it has killed 9,000 Hamas fighters in northern Gaza alone. How many more have been killed in southern Gaza? An equal number, or less? Let’s assume that half as many — 4,500 — were killed in the south. And since Hamas fighters before this war totaled 25,000, it is reasonable to conclude that in the first three months of fighting, at least 12,500 Hamas fighters have been killed, leaving Hamas with only half the number it had on October 6. And the IDF, having dismantled Hamas in the north, is now eviscerating its combatants in the south. The Israelis have repeatedly made clear that the war could go on till the end of the year. Since they agreed to engage in a “less intense” phase of the war, the Israelis have not been pressured by the Americans to conclude the war any time soon. The Bidenites have not said a word about when that war will end, silently conceding that that decision is up to Israel alone. They have limited themselves to insisting that Israel not force people to leave Gaza — a quite unnecessary and insulting demand, because the Israelis have made clear they will do no such thing. Gazans will make their own decisions as to whether they want to remain in Gaza, or seek better lives elsewhere. And, of course, both Biden and Blinken have repeated the usual boilerplate about the American commitment to that will-o’-the-wisp of a “two-state solution,” that is receding ever further into the unattainable distance.

The Al-Aqsa Flood [the name Hamas gives to its October 7 invasion of Israel and the murder of 1,200 Israelis] is just the first time, and there will be a second, a third, a fourth, because we have the determination, the resolve, and the capabilities to fight … Nobody should blame us. On October 7, October 10, October one million — everything we do is justified.

Of course everything Hamas does is justified —the Al-Aqsa Flood, the scarcely-believable Hamas atrocities — to the likes of senior Hamas leader Ghazi Hamad. The beheading of babies, the burning alive of children, the gang-rapes, torture, and murder of young girls, the slicing the breasts of women, the gouging out of eyes and cutting off genitalia of men, the murder of children in front of their parents and of parents in front of their children — these atrocities are what Hamad promises it will repeat, ad libitum and ad nauseam, however long it takes. And this is of course “justified” as a way to loosen the supposed stranglehold that the apartheid-settler-colonial-genocidal state of Israel has on Gaza and its 2.2 million innocent inhabitants.

There can be no doubt about Hamas and its goals: the terrorist group wants to destroy Israel and every single one of its citizens.

Hamas’ leaders have not hidden the fact that they believe the October 7 massacre was justified, and that they will try to replicate the horror over and over again.

Why doesn’t the Western media remind its audience of the details of the October 7 massacres, and of how Hamas has vowed to commit those atrocities over and over again?

Likewise, before October 7, Hamas never masked its genocidal aims, having been founded on a charter that swears Islam will “obliterate” Israel.

Hamas’ original goal remains the annihilation of the Jewish state, accompanied by the killing or expulsion of all of the Jews in Israel. Tactics and timing may vary a bit, depending on circumstances, but the ultimate goal of eradicating the Jewish state is immutable.

Jihad vs. Civilization

The David Horowitz Freedom Center speaks the truths no one else will say.

[The “Jihad Vs. Civilization: The Truth About The Hamas War On Israel” digital ebook is available at the Front Page Magazine store.]

After Oct 7, the journalists, scholars and thinkers with the David Horowitz Freedom Center rallied to tell the truth about what was happening in Israel and around the world.

While the media covered up the real story, we told it in bracing and unflinching language.

The titles of articles like “Genocide The true roots of Islamic Jew-hatred” and “The Enemy Within: Islamic Nazis” by David Horowitz, “Look, Mom, I Killed Some Jews!” by Robert Spencer and “Savages” by Daniel Greenfield reflected the raw truths that we alone were speaking.

This was not a border dispute, it was not about land or even Israel, but about the primal confrontation between civilization and a Jihad dedicated to conquering or destroying it.

Three months later, as leftists and Hamas supporters rampage across our cities, disrupt Christmas tree lightings, attack Holocaust museums and churches, block bridges and airports, the truths told in these articles and many others are more important than ever before.

That is why we have compiled twenty of them into “Jihad Vs. Civilization: The Truth About The Hamas War On Israel” with over 150 pages of compelling facts, ‘follow-the-money’ exposes and clear statements about what this war really is, what it means for us and how to win it.

“Jihad Vs. Civilization” is not just a compilation of articles, it’s a distillation of some of the most important things we need to know about this fight which looks beyond the day-to-day battles to peels back the financial and political layers of who has really been backing and funding this war.

This is an ebook that tells the truth about Islam as only courageous warriors like David Horowitz and Robert Spencer can do, but it also shows how the Biden administration, nonprofits, universities and even the IRS are complicit in aiding the leftist-Islamist campaign of terror.

Where else could you read, for example, that as David Horowitz writes, “The roots of Islamic Jew hatred… actually go back more than a thousand years to the prophet Mohammed.”

And where else could you learn that, “when Biden restored aid to the terrorists, Israeli casualties shot up 900%.They rose every year Biden was in office, up another 82% from 2021 to 2022. Even before the horrifying atrocities of the conclusion of the Jewish High Holy Days, twice as many Israelis had been killed in one month of Biden than in one year of Trump. The money kept on rolling in even days before the attacks when UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield declared herself ‘proud to announce the United States is providing more than $73 million in additional funding to support UNRWA’” which is just a UN front for Hamas.

There are ‘inconvenient truths’ here that Al Gore wouldn’t touch with a thousand foot pole.

“Our special envoys and diplomats mistakenly take it for granted that enough Palestinian Arabs truly want ‘two lands living side by side in peace,’ rather than follow their faith’s command that any land conquered by Muslims remains Islamic forever,” Bruce Thornton writes. They “dismiss this obvious fact as an ‘Islamophobic’ slur, despite decades of Palestinian Arabs telling us that ‘diplomatic engagement’ and ‘agreements’ are mere tactics sanctioned by Islam.”

And there are compelling doses of reality here that must be spread far and wide.

“What retaliation is ‘proportionate’ to the burning alive of families?” Mark Tapson asks. “This notion of ‘proportionate response’ is entirely bogus. It is nothing more than a fake moral demand from Israel’s left-wing enemies to prevent her from defending herself. Only Israel is expected to respond ‘proportionately’ to ongoing terror attacks from an organization whose commitment to eradicating the Jewish state is enshrined in its own charter.”

Before Harvard’s Claudine Gay made headlines for her openness to Jewish genocide, Bruce Bawer wrote that, “Harvard has over 1.3 administrators per student. Most of these people are superfluous at best and mischief-makers at worst – DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) bureaucrats who strive to protect students from ‘microaggression’ but who shrug indifferently at cries of ‘kill the Jews.'”

“Jihad Vs. Civilization: The Truth About The Hamas War On Israel” pulls no punches whether it’s going after Students for Justice in Palestine, “so convinced of their political invulnerability that they openly quote Hamas and celebrate rape, kidnapping and murder”, the Biden administration “the murdered Israelis, the raped women and the caged children, fulfilled the foreign policy aims of the Biden administration which were to weaken Israel” or Islam “the call to murder the Jews – ‘every last one’ – and to behead them as infidels, is part of the sacred texts of Islam.”

This is an ebook that encompasses what the David Horowitz Freedom Center has been doing all along, no matter how unpopular it may be, and that is telling the unfiltered truth.

After the Hamas attacks, a 2010 video of David Horowitz at UC San Diego went viral in which he asked a member of the Muslim Students Association , “I am a Jew. The head of Hezbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally. For or Against it?”

And she replied, “For it.”

Behind that video was much more than just a single moment.

David Horowitz, Robert Spencer and many of the others quoted in the ebook had been warning about the civilizational threat of the Jihad and fighting it long before it was in the headlines.

The David Horowitz Freedom Center went on campuses where we faced threats, violence and even arrests for telling the truth about Islamic terror (that’s another story told in this ebook), we campaigned, exposed and kept on speaking out even when we were targeted by administrators, a powerful government agency and when we had to go to court to defend our rights.

“Jihad Vs. Civilization” is our latest entry in the fight to save civilization from its enemies. It’s the story of the real war on the battlefield of ideas that is taking place in our streets, our campuses and our government. It will arm you with the facts and the truths we need to fight back.

Biden regime spokesman defends UNRWA despite mounting evidence of its aid to Hamas’ jihad against Israel

Over the years at Jihad Watch, and particularly since Oct. 7, we have provided extensive evidence of UNRWA’s collaboration with Hamas, as well as its teaching of jihad and Jew-hatred in UNRWA schools. The fact that the Biden regime does not wish to defund or even upbraid UNRWA in light of all this evidence is yet another indication of which side it is really on.

“John Kirby: UNRWA does important work,” by Elad Benari, Israel National News, January 5, 2024:

White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby on Thursday defended the work of UNRWA, the UN agency for “Palestinian refugees” after a reporter suggested the US should rethink its support for the UN agency in the wake of reports that its facilities are being used by Hamas terrorists.

“UNRWA does important work. In fact, they’re doing a lot of heavy lifting right now in terms of trying to get food, water, medicine to the people of Gaza, all up and down the Strip. They’re doing a lot of work, and they’re doing it in harm’s way — very much so in harm’s way,” said Kirby.

“You can’t hold them accountable for the depredations of Hamas and the way Hamas uses civilian infrastructure, including hospitals, for command and control, for storage of weapons, for the holding of hostages,” he added.

When the reporter noted that the US gave UNRWA a billion dollars, Kirby replied, “They do good work in Gaza, and they are important to helping get the humanitarian assistance to the people of Gaza. And we’re grateful for that work that they’re doing, very much in harm’s way.”

He added, “I will let them speak to whatever concerns they have over Hamas’s activities and the degree to which that they feel obligated to speak out or not.”…

However, it is also notorious for its anti-Israel activities. During the 2014 counterterrorism Operation Protective Edge, Hamas rockets were discovered inside a school building run by UNRWA.

Likewise, a booby-trapped UNRWA clinic was detonated, killing three IDF soldiers. Aside from the massive amounts of explosives hidden in the walls of the clinic, it was revealed that it stood on top of dozens of terror tunnels, showing how UNRWA is closely embedded with Hamas.

More recently, it was discovered that a hostage kidnapped by Hamas to Gaza was held for 50 days in the attic of an UNRWA teacher.

Last year, the US increased its financial support for UNRWA, reaching a record $223 million, an increase of $16 million on the previous year….

Police State NJ Busted Muslim: ‘Jihad… Coming Soon To a US Location Near You’

“I saw how Islam solves the problems of the world”

News from 1993, but thirty years later we insist on recreating the old joke about Mohammed and the mountain by continuing to bring the Jihad to us. And then we’re surprised when this stuff keeps happening and then happening some more.

A New Jersey man who prosecutors say was “devoted … to waging violent jihad against America” and galvanized by Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack against Israel, was busted in Kenya earlier this month while en route to join Somalia-based Islamist terror group al-Shabaab, authorities said Friday.

Karrem Nasr, 23, of Lawrenceville, faces up to 20 years in prison after Manhattan federal prosecutors charged him with a single count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

“Nasr, a citizen of this country, traveled from Egypt to Kenya bent on joining and training with al Shabab [sic] so that he could execute his jihadist mission of death and destruction,” US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams said Friday.

“Nasr was prepared to kill and be killed to support the jihadist cause, and in his own words, he described America as ‘evil’ and the ‘head of the snake,’” he added.

Okay. So why did we feel the need to export him back to America?

Karrem left America and joined a Jihadist group while pledging to attack us. Was there a reason we couldn’t denaturalize and then drone him? (Except that it would make Ron Paul and Jimmy Carter cry?) Instead, we’re going to spend a million dollars getting him back, trying him, and then housing and feeding him for another 15 years or so, only to release him when he’s pushing forty so he can give it another go. Maybe along the way he’ll decide he wants a doctorate, a hunger strike and a poetry collection. A law firm will represent him pro bono and spend 15 years filing challenges and then at the end of it he’ll be a hero.

It would make more sense to offer ISIS and Al Qaeda supporters and their affiliates a plane ticket anywhere in the world as long as they’re willing to give up their citizenship.

And then make a nice drone target.

We could easily get rid of a few thousand Nasrs and the folks screaming about how much they love the Houthis on New Year’s Eve in Times Square. New Jersey and Michigan might lose a legislative district and we would save a lot of American lives.

According to the federal complaint, Nasr “warned that ‘Jihad’ was ‘coming soon to a US location near you,’ posting airplane, bomb, and fire emojis. In further communications with the CS, NASR expressed his intent to join al Shabaab to receive military training and engage in jihad; that he was prepared to kill and be killed; and that he specifically aspired to be a martyr for the jihadi cause.”

And we could have given him what he wanted as long as he gave us what he wanted, an exit strategy from having to cope with him.

“I think this is going to be an opportunity to join al Shabaab mujahideen movement would be appropriate for me to gain experience and learn. After the October 7th events, I felt that something has changed. To the better I mean. I felt that pride and dignity came back to the Muslims. I do not know if you follow the news in the West, but there are a lot of people now in America, not Muslims, just reading the letter from Sheikh Usama binLaden, letter to America, or letter to the American people, he explains why AQ is doing what they are doing. And there are a lot of people, because of this letter, have completely changed their opinion on him, and they finally understand how evil America is.”

Nasr stated that, “I used to be an 3ammi [meaning blind or ignorant] but then I became religious and I saw how Islam solves the problems of the world and I learned about establishing sharia and khilafa is something we need to strive for.”

Solve the problems of the world? Islam is the problem of the world.

What percentage of the Islamic settlers in this country will come to the same calculation?

Police State New Jersey: Muslim inspired by Oct. 7 massacre was ‘devoted to waging violent jihad against America’

“Nasr was prepared to kill and be killed to support the jihadist cause…”

Where did he get that idea?

“Indeed, Allah has bought from the believers their lives and their wealth, because the garden will be theirs, they will fight in the way of Allah and will kill and be killed.” (Qur’an 9:111)

“NJ man Karem Nasr inspired by Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack busted allegedly trying to join Islamist terror group in Kenya: ‘Prepared to kill,’” by Caitlin Doornbos, New York Post, December 29, 2023:

A New Jersey man who prosecutors say was “devoted … to waging violent jihad against America” and galvanized by Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack against Israel, was busted in Kenya earlier this month while en route to join Somalia-based Islamist terror group al-Shabaab, authorities said Friday.

Karrem Nasr, 23, of Lawrenceville, faces up to 20 years in prison after Manhattan federal prosecutors charged him with a single count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

“Nasr, a citizen of this country, traveled from Egypt to Kenya bent on joining and training with al Shabab [sic] so that he could execute his jihadist mission of death and destruction,” US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams said Friday.

“Nasr was prepared to kill and be killed to support the jihadist cause, and in his own words, he described America as ‘evil’ and the ‘head of the snake,’” he added.

Nasr had moved to Egypt in July to study Arabic and became “particularly motivated to become a jihadi” after Hamas killed more than 1,200 people — including at least 33 Americans — in its October assault on southern Israel, FBI special agent Bilal Morgan wrote in court documents.

“In recent public social media posts, Nasr warned that ‘Jihad’ was ‘coming soon to a US location near you,’ posting airplane, bomb, and fire emojis,” Morgan wrote. “Nasr expressed his intent to join al Shabaab [sic] to receive military training and engage in jihad; that he was prepared to kill and be killed; and that he specifically aspired to be a martyr for the jihadi cause.”

Nasr planned to meet members of al-Shabaab, which has links to Al Qaeda, during his Kenya trip after engaging with an FBI source posing as a facilitator for terrorist organizations last month.

“After the Oct. 7 events, I felt that something has changed [for] the better, I mean,” Nasr reportedly told the source. “I felt that pride and dignity came back to the Muslims.”

Nasr further referenced the recent online spread of Osama bin Laden’s 2002 “Letter to America,” which garnered attention among TikTok users who claimed they had never heard of Al Qaeda’s complaints about the conflict between Israel and Palestinians.

“I do not know if you follow the news in the West, but there are a lot of people now in America, not Muslims, just reading the letter from Sheikh [Osama] bin Laden …” Nasr told the source, according to court documents. “And there are a lot of people, because of this letter, [who] have completely changed their opinion on him, and they finally understand how evil America is.”

Nasr reportedly offered to “write for any group that he joined” because he “could write well and knew how to translate,” adding that he also “wanted to train to ‘shoot’ with any [terror] group he joined,” Morgan wrote.

The defendant originally planned to meet the jihadists in Kenya in January, but Nasr told the source he accelerated his plans after learning his mother was visiting from the US in mid-December and wanted to take him “back to America to continue my education and work.”

“Parents nowadays have no interest in religion and they do not want their children to be mujahideen,” he told the source, noting that his mother did not know of his intentions to join al-Shabaab….

Israel-Hamas war: Israeli Govt. on hostage operations, murdered bodies held captive

The Israeli Government provided an update on the 129 hostages being held captive by Hamas. Israeli Government Spokesman Eylon Levy says Hamas is holding the bodies of hostages that have been murdered. The government says Hezbollah has launched an anti-tank missile from inside Lebanon at the Greek Orthodox Church, injuring a civilian.
