the enemy of your enemy is your … enemy i guess

Posted by theintelgirl on May 8, 2006

I starting browsing the website of the Islamic Thinkers Society, which barely made the MainStream Media a few weeks ago for hosting a pro-homicide bombing rally in NYC.

The website, which is filled with wordy, unpoetic fluff which is next to impossible to read, maintains a list of "scholars to be avoided."

1. Khaalid Al-Anbaree
2. Rabee bin Hadee Al-Madkhali
3. Abdulaziz aal Shaykh
4. Abdurahman as Sudais
5. Shakiel Humayun
6. Saleh al Fawzan
7. Aid al-Qarni
8. Zaki Badawi
9. Sa'ad al Barek
10. Yusuf al-Qaradawi
11. Sayyid Tantawi
12. Saleh ibn Ghanem as Sadlaan
13. al-Bouti
14. Hamza Yusuf Hanson
15. Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi
16. Dr. Abdul Hakim Jackson
17. Dr. Ahmad Shleibak
18. Dr. Akbar Muhammad
19. Dr. Deina Abdulkadir
20. Shaikh Hassan Qazwini
21. Dr. Ihsan Bagby
22. Dr. Jamal Badawi
23. Dr. Muhammad Adam Sheikh
24. Shaikh Muhammad Al-Hanooti
25. Shaikh Muhammad Nur Abdallah
26. Dr. Salah Soltan
27. Dr. Taha Jabir Alalwani
28. Shaikh Yahya Hindi
29. Shaikhah Zainab Alwani
30. Dr. Zulfiqar Ali Shah
31. Dr. Mukhtar Maghraoui
32. Dr. Nazih Hammad
33. Hisham Kabbani

Pretty damn crazy that most of these folks are also on some of America's most hated lists. Jamal Badawi, for instance, is on the board of CAIR. Muhammad Al-Hanooti has alleged ties to Hamas and even raised $6 million for them. Qaradawi? Well, we won't even go into that.

I guess even violence-supporting thugs don't always get along.

an endless supply of homicide bombers

Posted by theintelgirl on May 5, 2006

I was just searching for a parody poster for a friend at http://www.despair.com (funny shit, check it out), and I came across this one:

It's horrible that I look at this, see the pyramids, think "middle east," think "well, terrorists certainly have set their mind to murdering Americans," due to a screwed up Islamist vision.  And unfortunately, they have a seemingly endless supply of labor (suicide bombers) who are willing to do the work.  (Which then of course reminds me of one of the funny Mohammed Cartoons, "Stop, stop, we're out of virgins!!"

terrorists: uncreative and unoriginal

Posted by theintelgirl on May 4, 2006

They get their prompts from manuals. Take the translation of the Al Qaeda Manual for instance. Chapter 18 deals ENTIRELY with what you should say / do if imprisoned. Check out the first and second things on the list: (Amnesty International and other bleeding heart liberal shmucks "human rights groups" would disregard this entirely)

  1. At the beginning of the trial, once more the brothers must insist on proving that torture was inflicted on them by State Security [investigators ]before the judge.
  2. Complain [to the court] of mistreatment while in prison.

And related to yesterday's post:

(A substep of Chapter 18, Step 8 ) "The brothers should create an Islamic program for themselves inside the prison, as well as recreational and educational ones, etc."

This makes me very curious how many Muslims inside of prisons have read this manual? Maybe this is where they get their idea to perform "selfless acts" of encouraging others to convert to Islam.

no martyrdom for Moussaoui

Posted by theintelgirl on May 4, 2006

Best list of info and articles here

I find the comments of prisoners who convert to Islam while serving their time particularly interesting.  Now, granted, Moussaoui probably won't have much interaction with other prisoners in a SuperMax Federal prison, but it still concerns me immensely.  That's all we need is some psycho islamic militant fanatic convincing other criminals (who already hate America / the law for their own reasons)  to somehow destroy America.  

Here are some articles on prison converts to Islam.  SCARY FUCKING SHIT

  • Front Page Mag.  One note – I find this acronym upsetting:  The Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences (GSISS).  Sound it out.  Gee-sus.  I guess the "Mohammed" acronym might've been too tough.

let’s hope this hasn’t gone overlooked

Ohio Doctor Pleads Guilty to Illegally Transferring Money to Iran 

According to the ICE, further investigation uncovered a "hawala" scheme used by Anvari-Hamedani to transfer $169,000 to Iran. The ICE says "hawalas" are a form of alternative money-transmitting business common in many Middle Eastern and African countries. The funds can be transferred between parties based on ties of kinship and individual trust, without using an immediate physical or electronic transfer of funds.

Money changers, also known as "hawaladars," physically receive cash or funds in one country. Hawaladars in another country then dispense an identical amount (minus fees or commissions) to a recipient or designated recipient bank account. These transactions could be exploited by terrorist groups or other criminal organizations to move large suns of money across international borders undetected.

I hope the Toledo, OH police department is aware that in "hawala schemes," that their investigation is NOT over with the arrest of Hamedani.  They need to find the U.S. based hawaladar that that Hamedani was using!  No paperwork, no formal structure, Good Luck!  But hawaladars never have just one customer.  

Here's a good paper on the Hawala money transfers, but allow me to provide a distilled version.   

  1. A guy in the United Arab Emirates wants to send money to his "friend" in Iraq, but does not want to do it through formal banking or transfers.
  2. He asks his friends for the names of some local "hawaladars" in the UAE.
  3. Takes his big stash of cash to the hawaladar in the UAE
  4. The hawaladar takes the money, records nothing, no receipts, anything.
  5. The hawaladar then contacts a counterpart hawaladar in Iraq (not sure how he "contacts" them though).
  6. Says to the Iraqi hawaladar, "deliver X dollars to Hamed of Baghdad (or whomever)."
  7. The Iraqi hawaladar contacts Hamed of Baghdad and gives him the X dollars.
  8. NOTE** No money ever is exchanged between the hawaladars.  The Iraqi hawaladar will contact the same UAE hawaladar the next time, making it all even-steven. 

Toledo's Hamedani had to find the name of the hawaladar somewhere. And something tells me that the hawaladar's banking practices are not PATRIOT ACT compliant.
