PALESTINIAN ISLAMIC JIHAD, IN GAZA THE WEST BANK AND TAMPA FL

The Islamic Jihad aka the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza the West Bank and Tampa Fl.
Following the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas' lead, this ferocious militant group desires nothing more than to 'eliminate the Zionist entity,' as its a-political nature frees it from adhering to any ceasefire achieved between other militant groups and Israel.
Ynetnews; The Islamic Jihad, or as it is officially called The Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, is a radical Muslim terror organization operating in the Middle East (and Tampa FL).

The organization's main goal is the elimination of
Israel, which it calls "the Zionist entity", through Jihad – a holy war, and the establishment of an Islamic state "from sea to sea."...

The Islamic Jihad's charter further calls for "Jihad against the Jewish existence in Palestine," and states that "the Jihad is the obligation of every Muslim and must be carried out immediately, regardless of the formation of an Islamic state." The holy war, continues the charter, is a vital step in rehabilitating the Islamic nation and will lead the nation back to its fundamental, original, Islamic values.

The Islamic Jihad is a significantly smaller organization than Hamas. Like
Hamas, the Jihad's principles derive from those of the Muslim Brotherhood, but unlike it, it has no civil branch, nor does it work to benefit the Palestinian people; its main focus is on guerrilla warfare and terror activities.

The Jihad operates mainly in the West Bank and Gaza Strip (and Tampa Fl), but has also carried out attacks in Jordan and
Lebanon

Funding and infrastructure;
The Islamic Jihad has large cells in various Arab nations (and Tampa Fl). Financed almost exclusively by
Iran, the organization's leadership is located in Syria. Iran is said to funnel several million dollars a year to the Jihad, with nearly all funds going directly to terror activities, and some towards the organization's bureaucracy, maintaining offices, salaries, weapon purchases and aiding its members' families.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad was founded by Fathi Shaqaqi and Abd al-Aziz Awda in the 1970s, as a branch of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad. In the early 1980s the two returned to Gaza and began recruiting men and funds, mostly through mosques and other religious establishments. The Jihad's Palestinian cell, known as the al-Quds Brigades, is said to have several hundred operatives, located mostly in Gaza.


Rehabilitating the nation. Al-Quds Brigades, Terrorism and militant activity;
Soon after establishing itself in the Palestinian territories, the Jihad began training its men in guerrilla warfare, later becoming a driving force in the eruption of the First Intifada, in 1987. In 1988, after a series of terror attack on Israeli citizens and IDF forces, Israel outlawed the Islamic Jihad, subsequently exiling Shaqaqi to Lebanon.

Many of the Jihad's local leaders fled Israel, settling in Syria and Lebanon, where they tightened their ties with Iran and Syria and formed tactical bonds with other radical terror groups such as
Hizbullah.

The PLO's (Palestine Liberation Organization) recognition of Israel's right to exist in 1988 and the subsequent signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993, were seen by the Jihad as acts of treason, prompting the organization to escalate its attacks on Israel.

Dozens of suicide bombings swept through the country, as Jihad "shahids" (martyrs) targeted Israeli buses, restaurants and public venues. In one of the Jihad's most infamous attacks in 1995, two suicide bombers targeted a group of soldiers at a northern bus depot; the first bomber killing soldiers and the second slaying the emergency services' personnel who rushed to the scene. Twenty-two Israelis lost their lives that morning.

On October 1995 Fathi Shaqaqi was assassinated in Malta by two bikers who shot him at pointblank range. The international intelligence community has always maintained the Mossad was responsible for the hit, but Israel never claimed it for its own.

Shaqaqi's place in Jihad's leadership was taken by one of his deputies, Dr. Ramadan Abdullah Shallah (formerly of TAMPA FL), who still heads the organization from his hiding place in Damascus. Abdullah makes no secret of Iran's involvement in Islamic Jihad activities: "The Palestinian Islamic Jihad is another fruit of the Ayatollah Khomeini's fructuous tree," he said during a 2002 visit to Tehran.

The obligation of every Muslim, Jihad;
On March 1996, the Jihad managed to smuggle a suicide bomber through Gaza's Karni crossing, which is used mainly for industrial shippings, into Israel. He later blew himself up in Tel Aviv, during a Purim (Jewish Halloween) holiday parade, killing 13 and injuring 125.

When the Second Intifada erupted in 2000, Jihad once again escalated its terror activities, going as far as joining forces with Hamas, for the first time in both groups' history, in an attempt to carry out even bigger, more ferocious attacks on Israel. The Jihad made terror history at that time, allowing women into its ranks and training them, alongside its men, to carry out attacks. The Jihad soon flaunted the novelty: On October 4 2003, a female suicide bomber targeted the Maxim Restaurant in Haifa, killing 21 Israelis.

The Jihad went on to claim hundreds of attacks on Israel, carrying out some 422 bombings, shootings and stabbings, in which 134 Israelis were killed and approximately 880 were injured.

The Palestinian Authority, meanwhile, was going through some major political changes: In late 2004 Yasser Arafat died. In early 2005, Mahmoud Abbas was named Palestinian president and the following summer saw Israel
unilaterally withdraw from the Gaza Strip. In January 2006, the PA held its first general elections in which Hamas achieved a landslide victory, winning 76 of the Palestinian parliament's 132 seats.

Hamas-Fatah infighting began shortly after, escalating over the course of a year to the point of a
near-civil war. In mid 2007 Hamas forces took control of the Gaza Strip, forcing Palestinian leadership, including Abbas, to flee to the West Bank city of Ramallah, effectively splitting the PA into two political entities.

Throughout the political turmoil The Islamic Jihad continued its attacks on Israel: Stealthily aided by Hamas – which chose not to be directly involved at the time – Jihad operatives escalated the barrage of Qassam rockets and mortar shells fired at Israel's southwest.

The Jihad's Qassam and mortars are short-range rockets, allowing the organization to target mostly Sderot, the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council and the Gaza vicinity communities. Jihad forces have also tried using self-produced mid-range rockets called "Quds 101," "Quds 102," and "Quds 103" aimed at Ashkelon.

Not obligated by any hudna or ceasefire;

Being of a-political nature, the Islamic Jihad is not obligated by any hudna or ceasefire – temporary of permanent – brokered between Hamas and Israel. The Islamic Jihad is defined as a terror group by the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, Australia and Israel.

Prominent figures within Jihad:
Fathi Shaqaqi: Co-founder of the Islamic Jihad, killed in Malta in 1995.

Dr. Ramadan Abdullah Shallah: Current leader of the Jihad, who took over after Shaqaqi's death, currently living in Syria (PRIOR ADDRESS WAS IN TAMPA FL).

Dr. Sami Al-Arian (TAMPA FL): The North American leader of the Islamic Jihad, responsible for raising funds for the organization's terror activities. He was arrested in 2003 and later indicted by the US attorney general for 50 counts of operating a racketeering enterprise and supporting terror acts. He pled guilty to charges of conspiracy to help members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in nonviolent activities and sentenced to 57 months in prison. He stands to be deported from the US upon completion of his sentence.

Abdullah al-Shami: The Gaza leader of Islamic Jihad.

Mohammed el-Hindi: One of the organization's senior leaders in Gaza, considered a radical hardliner.

Mahmoud Tawalbe: Leader of the Jihad's military forces in the West Bank city of Jenin.; killed by IDF forces during Operation Defensive Shield in 2002.

Sheikh Mohammed Khalil: A senior Jihad operative, killed in an IAF airstrike in Gaza in 2005.

Knock Offs Knock thoundands of $ dollars off Sarasota-Tampa Economy with Counterfeit DVD's and Computer Software





THOUSANDS OF COUNTERFEIT CD'S, DVD'S AND COMPUTER SOFTWARE PROGRAMS ARE SHIPPED FROM CAIRO EGYPT TO THE PORT OF TAMPA EVERY MONTH. The merchandise (manufactured in China) is picked up by a local truck driver and then delivered to a variety of convenience stores in the greater Tampa area (linked to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad) where it is retailed at discounted prices resulting in huge profits. In February alone, over 150 shipments of the counterfeit merchandise were received at the Port of Tampa resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales. Such shipments of counterfeit merchandise result in very high profits that can be used to support terrorism through Trade Based Money Laundering, counterfeit goods coming into the USA, then goods are purchased with the profits from the counterfeit material such as used vehicles, the vehicles are shipped out of the USA for resale to Dubai (at 2 to 3 times the USA retail), no cash crosses the border......

WASHINGTON-Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher of the Criminal Division, Assistant Director James Finch of the FBI's Cyber Division, Assistant Secretary Julie L. Myers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Commissioner W. Ralph Basham, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) (SEE INFORMATION ABOUT PORT OF TAMPA), and Inspector Peter Goulet of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) today announced the results to date of an ongoing international enforcement initiative between the United States and Canada that targets the illegal distribution of counterfeit network hardware manufactured in China.

This ongoing initiative has resulted in more than 400 seizures of counterfeit Cisco network hardware and labels with an estimated retail value of more than $76 million. It is being led by ICE, CBP and the FBI working in conjunction with the Criminal Division's Computer Crime & Intellectual Property Section, U.S. Attorney's Offices across the country, and the RCMP.

The initiative targets the illegal importation and sale of counterfeit network hardware, in particular network routers, switches, network cards and modules manufactured by Cisco. By intercepting the counterfeit hardware at ports of entry (TAMPA) and dismantling illegal supply chains in the U.S., the operation has achieved significant successes in protecting the public from the risk of network infrastructure failures associated with these counterfeits.

"Counterfeit network hardware entering the marketplace raises significant public safety concerns and must be stopped. This initiative shows that through collaboration among law enforcement agencies and prosecutors worldwide, we can achieve dramatic enforcement results and protect public safety," said Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher of the Criminal Division. "It is critically important that network administrators in both private sector and government perform due diligence in order to prevent counterfeit hardware from being installed on their networks."

The FBI named its portion of this ongoing initiative Operation Cisco Raider-an international, coordinated investigation of 15 cases involving nine FBI field offices (Tampa). The FBI worked closely with law enforcement partners including ICE, Defense Criminal Investigative Service, General Services Administration, Department of the Interior, Internal Revenue Service, and the RCMP. Over the last two years, Operation Cisco Raider has resulted in 36 search warrants that identified approximately 3,500 counterfeit network components with an estimated retail value of over $3.5 million, and has led to a total of ten convictions and $1.7 million in restitution.

ICE and CBP opened a total of 28 investigations in 17 separate field offices since 2005; eight of those investigations were worked jointly with the FBI and several with the RCMP.

Some of the cases involved with this initiative across the United States include the following:
On February 14, 2008, in the Northern District of Georgia, Todd Richard, 33, was sentenced to 36 months' imprisonment and ordered to pay $208,440 in restitution to Cisco Systems, Inc., as a result of his conviction for trafficking in counterfeit Cisco computer products. From late 2003 until early 2007, Richard imported shipments of counterfeit Cisco computer components from China, and separate shipments of counterfeit Cisco labels. He then affixed the fake labels to the fake components and sold the products on eBay, claiming that they were legitimate Cisco items. Richard sold over $1 million worth of counterfeit Cisco products in this manner. This case was investigated by ICE and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Georgia.

On January 4, 2008, in the Southern District of Texas, a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Michael Edman, 36, and his brother Robert Edman, 28, with trafficking in counterfeit Cisco products. The indictment alleges that the Edmans purchased and imported the counterfeit computer network hardware from an individual in China. They later sold the counterfeit Cisco products to retailers of computer network products throughout the United States. According to the indictment, the Edmans shipped some of the counterfeit hardware directly to the Marine Corps, Air Force, Federal Aviation Administration, FBI, defense contractors, universities and financial institutions. These entities had purchased the product from a computer retailer serving as a middleman, which in turn purchased the products from the Edmans (a process known as "drop shipping"). The case was investigated by ICE and is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Texas.

The investigations are ongoing throughout the U.S. (including the Port of Tampa).

MUSLIM FANATICS "RADICALISED MENTALLY ILL CONVERT NICKY REILLY aka MOHAMMED RASHEED INTO BECOMING NAIL BOMBER"

Muslim fanatics 'radicalised mentally ill convert into becoming a nail bomber'.
Police discover device in restaurant toilet after explosion, Muslim convert with history of mental illness held, Police say Nicky Reilly aka Mohammed Rasheed (photo with head wound) was 'preyed upon and radicalised'.

By Daily Mail Reporter Last updated at 2:49 PM on 23rd May 2008 Anti-terrorist police are today examining the home of a Muslim convert who allegedly detonated a nail bomb in a family restaurant. Nicky Reilly, 22, who has a history of mental illness, suffered serious facial injuries after one of two devices exploded in the lavatories of the Giraffe eaterie in Exeter. He is currently under armed guard in hospital. Neighbours of Mr Reilly said that he changed his name last year through deed poll to Mohammed Rasheed and described him as “naive and easily led”. Daniel Turner, 20, a neighbour, said that Mr Reilly’s nickname is the “Big Friendly Giant” but that he had been “brainwashed”. Mr Turner said: “He is mentally ill and he probably has the mental age of a 10-year-old.

The team of detectives from Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism Command are also trying to establish if he had been radicalised. Police officers outside the block of flats where Nicky Reilly lives with his mother. Below, the moment police arrest him after the blast caused him serious facial injuries. Bottom, a CCTV image of Reilly crossing the road to enter the Giraffe restaurant was obtained.

Devon and Cornwall Deputy Chief Constable Tony Melville said Reilly appeared to be a "vulnerable" individual who had been "preyed upon" and "radicalised". He said: "Our investigations so far indicate that Reilly, who has a history of mental illness, had adopted the Islamic faith. "We believe that he was preyed upon, radicalised and taken advantage of."
Reilly was arrested by police at the scene of the explosion. He suffered lacerations to his eye and some facial burning after one device exploded. Another device found in the vicinity of the restaurant did not explode.


None of the customers or 15 staff at the restaurant was hurt. The £230million Princesshay shopping complex, where the restaurant is situated, together with a number of shops and offices in the adjacent High Street, were evacuated for several hours after the blast at lunchtime yesterday.

The Plymouth first-floor flat Reilly shares with his mother is currently being searched by police officers. It was from here that he'd travelled by bus to Exeter. Scott Allen, who lives in the flat below, said Reilly could have come into contact with groups of what he believed were Muslims who gathered in the area. Mr Allen, who said he'd grown up with Reilly, said there was sympathy in the local community for the 22-year-old and added: "I would say they picked on him because of his vulnerability. "He had always been a follower and had always wanted friends."

Mr Allen added Reilly, who is about 6ft 3in and weighs around 14 stone, had become more reclusive over the years. "When he did go out he would not speak to anyone," said Mr Allen, who added that his neighbour used to collect James Bond model cars and played games on his computer. Another neighbour, 17-year-old Aly Turner, said he understood Reilly was "into" the Muslim faith, but did not talk about it to him.

Aftermath: Bomb disposal teams were called in to deal with the devices and parts of the city centre were cordoned off "He did not talk to many people," he added.He went on: "He was a bit of a recluse, he did not have many friends locally." Police and bomb disposal teams were called in yesterday after diners at the Giraffe restaurant in Exeter city centre heard three blasts go off in a toilet as they were having lunch.


Two explosive devices were made safe and have been sent off for forensic examination. Deputy chief constable Melville said: "Witnesses described how a male entered a toilet in the restaurant shortly before an explosion was heard." Officers had to break down the cubicle door because the man refused to come out, witnesses said. When he emerged, wearing jeans and a dark t-shirt, blood was running down his face and all over his clothes.

A 14-strong team from the Metropolitan's Counter Terrorism Command has travelled to Exeter to assist in the investigation. Architect Peter Lacey, 63, and his wife Celia, 60, had just arrived to have lunch at Giraffe when the explosions went off at about 12.50pm. Mr Lacey, from Exeter, said: "I heard a noise which sounded like a gunshot and at first I thought it was a kitchen accident of some sort, albeit a very noisy one. "About a second afterwards there was another identical sound and maybe a second later a third. "I think everyone in the restaurant thought the same as us.

"They thought the first blast was something normal, when they heard the second there was doubt and when the third one happened it turned to concern. "There was absolutely no panic and I heard one customer say after the first bang they thought a light bulb had popped. "We were sat very close to the opening where there were doors to the two toilets, one of which is disabled and the other is a cubicle used by both men and woman. "I could tell the sound came from the cubicle but I was not in a position to see if there was a flash.

"Afterwards I saw a little piece of orange material which looked as if could have come from a cartridge and which may have been blown under the door. "The staff tried to get into the toilet but it was locked and they must have called the police.'' Giraffe is a national chain of restaurants which are popular with families as they give out balloons and crayons to children. Juliet Joffe, a director of Giraffe which has 21 restaurants and five franchises across the UK, said: "I have been given no explanation. As far as I am aware only one man was hurt, the man they think walked in with the device.''

INVESTIGATOR BILL WARNER LINKS 3RD JIHADIST WEB SITE TO TAMPA HOST

Investigator Bill Warner Links 3rd Jihadist Web Site To Tampa Host, to see STORY click on image at left. By HOWARD ALTMAN, The Tampa Tribune

Tampa continues to be the focus of an international game of Internet whack-a-mole between jihadists who put up Web sites and organizations and individuals who try to shut them down.


For the third time in a month, Sarasota-based
private investigator Bill Warner has tracked to a Tampa hosting company what investigators call a significant Web site used by jihadists for communications, recruitment and fundraising. The company is based in the same building as the U.S. attorney's office.

The site, http://www.alekhlaas.info/, appears to show images of mujahedeen firing on U.S. troops in Afghanistan, among other images. The Web site was hosted by Noc4Hosts Inc. until it was taken down this month after a call from The Tampa Tribune.

Warner, who says he tracks jihadists online to disrupt their activities, says he noticed today that the site once again is being hosted by Noc4Hosts.
Previous incarnations of the Web site have contained programs to give jihadists more secure communications capabilities.

This week, another site considered to be a key conduit for jihadists was taken down by Noc4Hosts after a call from the Tribune. That site,
www.alhesbah.net/v/, is considered the principal and largest jihadist forum of supporters of al-Qaida and global jihad and the oldest, said Reuven Paz, director of the Jerusalem-based Project for the Research of Islamist Movements.

That site remains offline. Warner says he goes after these sites, with the help of organizations such as the Middle East Media Research Institute, because "the propaganda war is being fought by al-Qaida and its affiliates on the Internet, and the USA hasn't even stepped onto the court."


"Web sites such as www.alekhlaas.info provide inspiration and technical advice for would-be terrorists all over the world," Warner said.
Noc4Hosts Inc. general manager Steven Eschweiler could not immediately be reached for comment. In the past, he has said he takes down sites as soon as he is informed about them. Last month he said Noc4Hosts "is not in cahoots with al-Qaida." He said a site that his company took down "was one of several hundred thousand the company hosts."


Web-hosting companies keep banks of computer servers where individual Web sites are based. "If there is anything anti-American, we will take them down," Eschweiler said last month. "We work closely with authorities any time something like this comes up."

Amid cries of ‘Allah o Akbar’ (god is great), a young boy, barely 12 years old, lifts his machete and strikes at his victim who is lying on the ground, all tied up for the kill. Waving a ‘V’ for victory sign with his right hand, the boy picks up the severed head and shows it around to the chants of applause from an audience gathered in a remote part of the region straddling the mountainous range which divides Pakistan and Afghanistan. The performance in this chilling episode which may simply shock most people around the world, is the case of militant justice meted out to supposed traitors.

It involves Al Qaeda and the Taliban slapping exemplary punishment to an individual suspected to be a spy for the government. “This (boy) is a killing machine who has been indoctrinated from age nine and prepared for his act by the time he is 12” says a Pakistani intelligence official who showed the video clip to CBS News as just one piece of evidence of Al Qaeda and the Taliban training young boys to become accomplished killers, even before they become teen-agers. This video has been captured by Pakistan’s military troops during their operations in the country’s semi autonomous tribal areas, as they went from village to village, searching for militant sanctuaries.

In the village of Spinkai-Roghzai where a group of journalists including CBS News were taken by Pakistan’s military on Sunday in the Waziristan tribal region, officials showed debris of what is described as a suicide training ‘nursery’. Under a pile of bricks lay the remains of an oil extracting factory which was a cover for training young boys to become ideologically charged up.
“There is no harm in taking ‘jehad’ (holy war) for the right cause” read the sign board in a training class, documented in yet another Pakistani intelligence video, secretly captured ahead of the operation, through the use of hidden cameras inserted around the front compound of the school. A teacher, who wrapped himself up to his face with a piece of cloth, pointed towards a list of “recommendations for students” while surrounded by teenagers, urging them to embrace virtues such as “accept the way forward through sacrifice” and “accept that laying down your life for the right cause is not a waste”.

"US MUSLIMS ARE CONCERNED OVER NEW US SENATE REPORT ON TERRORISM": SO ARE WE

“US Muslims are concerned over new US Senate report on terrorism”: So are we
by Jerry Gordon,
American Congress for Truth blog

So, the American Muslim brotherhood fronts are concerned about the recently released report -read here - by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee (HSGAC or “the Committee”) headed by Senators Joseph Lieberman and Susan Collins, “Violent Islamist Extremism, The Internet, And the Homegrown Terrorist Threat.” The Committee report states:
“No longer is the threat just from abroad, as was the case with the attacks of September 11, 2001; the threat is now increasingly from within, from homegrown terrorists who are inspired by “violent Islamist ideology” to plan and execute attacks where they live.”

This Dawn news report from the American Muslim press notes:
Four leading Arab-American and Muslim-American advocacy groups, in a joint letter to the two senators, have expressed deep concern over the report that heavily relies on a widely criticized and deeply flawed New York Police Department study on domestic radicalization that claimed that typical “signatures” of radicalization include wearing traditional clothing, growing beards, or giving up cigarettes, drinking, and gambling.

The groups which sent the letter are American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Muslim Advocates and Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). “Perhaps most disturbing is the fact that the report relies upon a now-discredited 2007 report by the New York Police Department that recommends particular scrutiny of American Muslims and Arab-Americans,” said Kareem Shora, executive director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC).

Having read the Committee report, we differ from our bete noire in the American fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood. Senators Lieberman and Collins have been courageous in holding hearings on Radical Islamic Extremism in America, so anything they say, will be viewed as “Islamophobia.”

Witness this comment from an ally of CAIR, the Washington office of the ACLU, captured in a Huffington Post article: Caroline Fredrickson, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office, summarized the ACLU response to the ‘awful’ Lieberman/Collins Senate Committee report: Though the need to prevent criminal acts of violence is unquestionable, targeting communities based on religious beliefs is unacceptable and unproductive. We will only end up stigmatizing the Islamic community and creating a nation of Islamophobes. We should not be legislating against thought and we should certainly not be regulating religious or unpopular thought. A dynamic debate can only make this country stronger and safer. (More here)

We have a different opinion about the Committee report on ‘terrorism’, the first in a series of such reports on Islamic Extremism in America to be produced by the Committee. The analysis misses the ‘800 pound gorilla in the room’ the core of Jihadist doctrine in the Canon of Islam. Apparently, they haven’t read the “Mapping Sharia Project” interim report about how radical most US Mosques are. As Mapping Sharia project head, David Yerushalmi commented to me in an email , the word ’sharia’ appears only three times in the Committee report. Nor, apparently, have they had the benefit of a briefing by Stephen Coughlin on Islamic Law Threat Doctrine.

The Committee report has fallen for the line that ‘outreach’ to American Muslims, ironically via the Muslim Brotherhood fronts, is the way to go. After all that’s what the FBI, the Office of Civil rights and Civil Liberties of DHS and the Pentagon do. All because these American Muslim leaders want to avoid ‘radicalization’. We guess they also haven’t spoken to M. Zhudi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, a moderate American Muslim, who might have set them straight about the goals of Political Islam as propounded by the Muslim Brotherhood fronts. They obviously didn’t read the transcripts of the Dallas Federal Holy Land foundation trial about the objective of Muslim Brotherhood fronts to convert the US to Sharia Islamic Law in their secret 20 Year plan.

Now they have a letter from representatives of the very same Muslim Brotherhood fronts accusing the Committee of basing its findings on the ‘tainted’ report of the NYPD, ‘The Role of Local Law Enforcement in Countering Violent Islamic Extremism”.

The Committee avoided recommendations of the White House Homeland Security report, NATO and independent experts that shutting down the al Qaeda and related terrorist websites and chat rooms, as Prof. Niv Ahituv at Tel Aviv University and our own Joseph Shahda and others, have indicated is the best immediate strategy.

Nor has this report addressed the closing of US ISP hosted terrorist sites including those of the Somali al Qaeda groups (AL-SHABAB) and those of Hezbollah. The Committee has chronicled the al Qaeda cyber warrior production and internet apparatus thoroughly. The report, however, relies on a questionable thesis from the West Point Combating Terrorism Center that monitoring terrorist websites for ‘actionable intelligence’ is the best strategy.

Then we have former CIA psychiatrist, Dr. Marc Sagerman with his peculiar views on group dynamics and social networking via the internet to produce ‘predispositions’ to Jihadism. We wonder what the Muslim Brotherhood fronts reactions would be if the Committee had based its report on the Islamic Law doctrine of Jihad. Ironically, they might accept that rather than the NYPD report.
Notwithstanding these comments, we commend the Committee in its efforts to investigate the dynamics of radical extremist Islam in America.

LIEBERMAN CALLS ON GOOGLE (YOUTUBE) TO TAKE DOWN TERRORIST CONTENT

LIEBERMAN CALLS ON GOOGLE (YOUTUBE) TO TAKE DOWN TERRORIST CONTENT
See Al-Shabab terror group linked with al-Qaeda Youtube video, this video is posted on their website see here, that is hosted by the Dotster web hosting company in Vancouver WA, Dotster refuses to take down this terrorist web site. YouTube Videos Are Produced by Al Qaeda and Other Terror Organizations; Videos Show Attacks on U.S. Soldiers, Civilians.

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn., Monday called on Google to remove Internet video content produced by terrorist organizations such as Al-Qaeda (and Al-Shabab). The videos – readily available on YouTube –show assassinations, deaths of U.S. soldiers and civilians, weapons training, incendiary speeches by al-Qaeda leadership, and other material intended to encourage violence against the West.

The videos are branded with Al-Qaeda logos – a practice detailed in a recent bipartisan Committee staff report entitled “Violent Islamist Extremism, the Internet, and the Homegrown Terrorist Threat.” These production logos are easily recognizable, making it easy for Google to remove them from its Internet sites. Lieberman called on Google to enforce its own community standards against videos that show gratuitous violence or people getting “hurt, attacked, or humiliated.”

“Islamist terrorist organizations use YouTube to disseminate their propaganda, enlist followers, and provide weapons training,” the Senator said in his letter. “YouTube also, unwittingly, permits Islamist terrorist groups to maintain an active, pervasive, and amplified voice, despite military setbacks or successful operations by the law enforcement and intelligence communities… “Protecting our citizens from terrorist attacks is a top priority for our government.

The private sector can help us do that (WEB HOSTING COMPANIES). By taking action to curtail the use of YouTube to disseminate the goals and methods of those who wish to kill innocent civilians, Google will make a singularly important contribution to this important national effort.”

Following is a copy of the letter:
May 19, 2008
Dr. Eric Schmidt Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer Google, Inc.
1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View, CA 94043

Dear Dr. Schmidt:
YouTube is being used to share videos produced by al-Qaeda and other Islamist terrorist groups. The purpose of this letter is to request that Google implement its own policy against this offensive material, remove these videos from YouTube, and prevent them from reappearing.

Today, Islamist terrorist organizations rely extensively on the Internet to attract supporters and advance their cause. The framework for much of this Internet campaign is described in a bipartisan staff report released last week by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (“Committee”), which I am privileged to chair, titled Violent Islamist Extremism, the Internet, and the Homegrown Terrorist Threat.

The report explains, in part, how al-Qaeda created and manages a multi-tiered online media operation that produces content intended to enlist followers in countries all over the world, including the United States. Central to this media campaign is the branding of content with an icon or logo to guarantee authenticity that the content was produced by al-Qaeda or allied organizations like al-Qaeda in Iraq, Ansar al-Islam (a.k.a Ansar al-Sunnah) or al-Qaeda in the Land of the Islamic Maghreb. All of these groups have been designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) by the Department of State. (also the Al-Shabab in Somalia, web hosted by Dotster in Vancouver WA).

Searches on YouTube return dozens of videos branded with an icon or logo identifying the videos as the work of one of these Islamist terrorist organizations. A great majority of these videos document horrific attacks on American soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan. Others provide weapons training, speeches by al-Qaeda leadership, and general material intended to radicalize potential recruits. In other words, Islamist terrorist organizations use YouTube to disseminate their propaganda, enlist followers, and provide weapons training – activities that are all essential to terrorist activity.

According to testimony received by our Committee, the online content produced by al-Qaeda and other Islamist terrorist organizations can play a significant role in the process of radicalization, the end point of which is the planning and execution of a terrorist attack. YouTube also, unwittingly, permits Islamist terrorist groups to maintain an active, pervasive, and amplified voice, despite military setbacks or successful operations by the law enforcement and intelligence communities.

YouTube posts “community guidelines” for users to follow, but it does not appear that the company is enforcing these guidelines to the extent they would apply to this content. For example, the community guidelines state that “[g]raphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your video shows someone getting hurt, attacked, or humiliated, don’t post it.” Many of the videos produced by one of the production arms of al-Qaeda show attacks on U.S. forces in which American soldiers are injured and, in some cases, killed.

Nevertheless, those videos remain available for viewing on YouTube. At the same time, the guidelines do not prohibit the posting of content that can be readily identified as produced by al-Qaeda or another FTO. I ask you, therefore, to immediately remove content produced by Islamist terrorist organizations from YouTube. This should be a straightforward task since so many of the Islamist terrorist organizations brand their material with logos or icons identifying their provenance.

In addition, please explain what changes Google plans to make to the YouTube community guidelines to address violent extremist material and how Google plans to enforce those guidelines to prevent the content from reappearing. Protecting our citizens from terrorist attacks is a top priority for our government.
The private sector can help us do that. By taking action to curtail the use of YouTube to disseminate the goals and methods of those who wish to kill innocent civilians, Google will make a singularly important contribution to this important national effort.

Thank you for your immediate attention to this critical matter and I look forward to your response.

Sincerely, Joseph I. Lieberman (ID-CT) Chairman, Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

Jon Voight - from Hollywood to Chernobyl and Sderot

Jon Voight - from Hollywood to Chernobyl and Sderot .
Jon Voight ever decides to give up acting, he could easily sign on as a Nefesh B'Nefesh emissary. Unlike many celebrities, who parachute in for quick, superficial jaunts through Israel, the 69-year-old Academy Award winner speaks of the country with the passion and knowledge of an insider.

And despite focusing his week-long visit on some of the grimmer realities of life here, Voight, who is not Jewish, remains fervent in his enthusiasm for what he terms a "miracle in progress.

"My business is story telling, and this is such a great story. To think in my lifetime that the Jews have returned to their land is simply amazing," said Voight last week, while fighting off a cold in the executive lounge of the David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem. "One of the most impressive things is that this barren land has returned to fullness of its description in the Bible - it really is the land of milk and honey," he said.

Best known for his roles in Midnight Cowboy, Deliverance, Coming Home and the National Treasure series with Nicolas Cage, as well as being the father of actress Angelina Jolie, Voight was visiting the country as a guest of Chabad and their Children of Chernobyl program, for which he has acted as spokesman for 15 years.
He welcomed the organization's 80th rescue mission of children from the area of the 1986 nuclear reactor disaster, brought terror victims to a Hapoel Jerusalem basketball game and hosted a barbecue for their families, visited scenes of Kassam rocket attacks in Sderot, and attend President Shimon Peres's "Facing Tomorrow" conference.

Like many in the entertainment industry, Voight was a regular guest on Chabad's annual telethons in the 1980s, along with the likes of Bob Dylan, Martin Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg. But it wasn't until he travelled to the Soviet Union to star in the 1991 television film called Chernobyl: The Final Warning that his relationship with the organization blossomed.

"I saw the damage done, and when I got back home I knew I needed to find a way to help. Chabad was having a fund-raiser for the Chernobyl children and asked me to MC. Since then I've been helping out with these dinners where they raise the money for these flights to rescue kids from the Chernobyl area and bring them to hospitals here in Israel to provide treatment, change their environment and save their lives," said Voight, recalling the previous day's welcoming ceremony at Ben- Gurion Airport for the latest delegation of 36 kids.

"There were a couple of little girls - little toughies. It's a four-hour flight, they've never been on an airplane before, they're leaving their homes without their parents and when they got off the plane, they were just such tough little wise guys, little rascals... it was hysterical."

Voight said he derived inspiration on his visit not only from helping the Chernobyl children but by meeting 50 terror victims and their families and by visiting residents of Sderot. "It's very moving to be with people who have courage. These are good people, who are struggling with this challenge that has altered their lives," he said.

"In Sderot, we went to a home which had suffered a direct Kassam hit on Saturday morning through the bedroom of the family's young sons. Windows were shattered, tables were broken, there were holes in the wall. You look at the devastation and you say, my God, this kid must have been obliterated," he said, his voice gaining emotion.

"But the kid had just a couple scratches on him - it was a complete miracle. And his brother's in the next room, same thing. Everything was damaged, except some tefillin, which wasn't touched. It gives me chills to think about it. "In the living room, there was a broken table, with flowers bought by the father for the mother for their anniversary strewn on the floor amid a broken vase. Someone said to her that it was a shame about the flowers, and she answered, 'Those aren't flowers, my children are flowers,'" recalled Voight, choking up and his eyes welling with tears. "What you're seeing in Sderot - there's nobody on the streets. It's a normal community, but there's nobody outside, no kids playing. It's like a twilight zone, the people there are terrorized. That's what terrorism is."

Voight said that if he were Israeli, he would be staunchly against negotiating with Hamas, and compared the plight of Sderot to that of London in World War II. "Do I think that [Neville] Chamberlain should have talked to Adolf Hitler? It's not different with the situation in Sderot. There were German barrages coming across into London terrorizing the London population. And that's what's going on in Sderot - they're trying to demoralize that little town - that little town," repeated Voight for emphasis.

Calling himself a former liberal Democrat, Voight recently endorsed Republican Sen. John McCain in the US presidential race. He added that he would prefer Sen. Hillary Clinton over Sen. Barack Obama, citing Obama as "dangerous."
"He's really extreme, but he's always trying to say something to cover it. He's like a Leftist from the '60s. I was on the Left, that's why I know who he is," said Voight.

"He says he'll talk to everybody [like Hamas and Iran], but it's simpleminded candy he's throwing to the extreme left wing. He'd be the biggest disaster for Israel - and all democracies - that I can think of." Being an outspoken conservative in liberal Hollywood isn't necessarily the smartest career move for an actor. Voight admitted that political discrimination was prevalent in the entertainment industry but said he was hopeful that things were slowly changing.
"After all, if Washington is a two-party town, why can't Hollywood be one too?" he joked. Regarding his iconic 1969 role as naïve male hustler Joe Buck in the groundbreaking film Midnight Cowboy alongside Dustin Hoffman, Voight said he had no idea the film would have such long lasting resonance. "You never know what's going to happen. It was such an unusual movie. Like I told Dusty [Hoffman], it's like Don Quixote and Sancho Panza - these guys are a couple and you're always going to smile when you think of them," he said.

SYED FAHAD HASHMI EXTRADITED TO US, HE IS A MEMBER OF AL-MUHAJIROUN FROM QUEENS NY

Syed Fahad Hashmi was finally extradited to the US on Friday, May 25, he is a member of Al-Muhajiroun from Queens NY.

He had been arrested at London's Heathrow Airport on June 6, 2006, suspected of assisting an Al Qaeda terrorist plot, and assisting jihadists in Afghanistan and Iraq. A resident of Flushing, Queens, he was a follower of the Islamic Thinkers Society. After 9/11, he had invited a member of Al-Muhajiroun to talk at the campus of Brooklyn College, where he had been a student.

His arrest last year happened as he was boarding a flight to Pakistan.


Since he was extradited to the United States in May of 2007, he has been held in solitary confinement in the Special Housing Unit at Metropolitan Correction Center in Manhattan, with no trial (as of 5/19/2008).


Hashmi was also a senior figure in Al Muhajiroun's US network. Investigations by private detective Bill Warner have been crucial in piecing together the links between the British membership of Al Muhajiroun with their counterparts in New York, and their combined links with terrorism.

The recent Operation Crevice terrorism trial, which concluded in London on April 30 had heard testimony from a former Al Muhajiroun member turned supergrass Mohamed Junaid Babar.

In 2005, Bill Warner took BBC journalist Richard Watson to the Masjid al-Fatima on 37th Avenue, Woodside, which had been taken over by radicals from Hizb ut-Tahrir in the mid 1990s. Watson videotaped Bill Warner's interview with imam Aqeel Khan, who spoke of the problems of radicals at the mosque.

Mr Warner's sleuthing managed to show that Junaid Babar, who was an Al Muhajiroun member from Queens, had attended the Woodside mosque, and here in 1999 had first met Sajil Shahid. Shahid had founded the Al Muhajiroun office in Lahore in Pakistan, which became a center for ferrying British jihadists (including the five men convicted of the Operation Crevice plot, and also Mohammed Sidique Khan, leader of London's 7/7 bombers) from Lahore to the regions bordering with Afghanistan, where they met Taliban and Al Qaeda controllers.

Mr Warner's investigations also showed that a meeting took place at the Masjid al-Fatima mosque from June 2 to 4, 2000, with lectures given by Sajil Shahid. This three day convention was also attended by an individual called "Brother Fahad", who is Syed "Fahad" Hashmi. 27-year old Hashmi was presented in United States Magistrate's Court on Tuesday May 29, and on the following day he was indicted at Manhattan Federal Court before United States District Judge Loretta Preska. He was indicted on three charges, with the main count involving conspiracy to contribute funds, goods or services to the terrorist group. If he is found guilty at his future trial, he could serve 50 years in jail.

This extradition from Britain to the US is the first ever to have taken place on terrorism charges. Why is this so? Britain signed an extradition treaty with the US in March 2003, which would have made extraditions to the US easier. No new treaty was signed to make extradition to Britain more straightforward. There are at least three individuals who have been requested to be extradited to the US. Hook-handed preacher of hate Abu Hamza was subjected to a US extradition order in May 2004, connected with his alleged attempts to set up a terror training camp at Dog Cry Ranch, Oregon in 1999.


Currently, Hamza is in Belmarsh jail, after being given a seven-year jail term for soliciting murder on February 7, 2006. He has fought the extradition request by trying to have his UK conviction overturned, a strategy which was rejected outright by the House of Lords on January 31. The Lords' decision should make his extradition more likely.

On July 19, Bow Street Magistrates Court closed, but the arguments against extradition have continued. Babar Ahmad, now aged 32, has been indicted on charges of supporting terrorism, conspiring to kill Americans, and maintaining a website used to fund terrorists. He has been in custody in the UK since he was arrested on August 2004. On May 17 2005, judge Timothy Workman had declared that Babar Ahmad could be extradited to the US. On November 16, 2005 Charles Clarke, who then had been the Home Secretary, had approved the extradition of Ahmad.

He ran several websites, which were used to recruit terrorists. The most important of these was Azzam.com, which recruited people for al-Qaeda, the Taliban and Chechen Islamist separatist organizations. The website also supplied gas masks, night-vision goggles and camouflage clothing.

On July 18, 2006, 26-year old Syed Talha Ahsan was arrested at his home in Tooting, after he was indicted by a federal court in Connecticut. A federal indictment had been made against Babar Ahmad from Connecticut in October 2004, on virtually identical charges.

It appears that Syed Talha Ahsan is connected with Babar Ahmad's internet recruitment drives. Ahsan is also charged with setting up terrorists in temporary housing in Britain, and shortly before 9/11, 2001, he owned a classified US Navy document which revealed troop movements. Ahsan and Ahmad are alleged by prosecutors to have run their pro-jihadist websites from 1998 to 2002.

Connecticut district attorney Kevin O'Connor said of Ahsan's case: "These charges are the result of several years of investigative work by ICE and FBI agents in New Haven, NCIS agents, and several additional law enforcement partners here in the United States and overseas."
