Jihad Watch is reporting that Lashkar e-Taiba (LeT) is responsible for today’s unspeakable acts in India. According to the Terrorism Knowledge Base, The LeT’s agenda is outlined in a pamphlet titled “Why are we waging jihad.” It includes the restoration of Islamic rule over all parts of India and propagates a narrow Islamic fundamentalism based on the Wahabi sect.
My oh my that sounds so familiar, doesn’t it? Well, maybe not the “India” part as much. But yes, the restoration of Islamic rule over THE FUCKING WORLD. The horrifying “caliphate” they always speak of. Hmmm, where have we heard about that before. Oh yes:
Here: Al-Qa’ida’s goal is to “unite all Muslims and to establish a government which follows the rule of the Caliphs.” Bin Laden has stated that the only way to establish the Caliphate is by force.
and Here: Hizb ut-Tahrir says that Muslims should abolish national boundaries within the Islamic world and return to a single Islamic state, known as “the Caliphate,” that would stretch from Indonesia to Morocco and contain more than 1.5 billion people.
and everywhere else you look …

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
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.

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!!"

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)
- 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.
- 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.

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.

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.
- 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.
- He asks his friends for the names of some local "hawaladars" in the UAE.
- Takes his big stash of cash to the hawaladar in the UAE
- The hawaladar takes the money, records nothing, no receipts, anything.
- The hawaladar then contacts a counterpart hawaladar in Iraq (not sure how he "contacts" them though).
- Says to the Iraqi hawaladar, "deliver X dollars to Hamed of Baghdad (or whomever)."
- The Iraqi hawaladar contacts Hamed of Baghdad and gives him the X dollars.
- 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.

I was not aware that Saudi Arabia was in the habit of releasing terrorists. Let's run down the reasons I can think of just off the top of my head:
- Oh yeah. Osama bin Laden hates the Saud family and Saudi Arabia (and won't even refer to it by that name … instead calls it Bilaad al-haramein – country of the two holy places) and calls for terrorist attacks on it.
- Terrorists hate the United States. Saudi Arabia tends to cooperate with the United States. I've never taken the LSATs or anything, but the logic on that one tells me that terrorists would also hate Saudi Arabia.
- According to the article, "Interior ministry sources said the release came after months of counseling by elite Saudi religious leaders to convince them to abandon extremist ideas." Let's think about this one a second. I wonder where their violent terrorist views came from in the first place. hmmm. **light bulb** oh yes, that's right. YEARS OF RELIGIOUS INDOCTRINATION BY HATEFUL SHEIKHS. I doubt that "months of counseling" could undo that. Unless (and this is a BIG maybe), by "counseling," they mean: we worked them over, beat them senseless, and caused so much brain damage they have permanent memory loss. Than yeah, okay. Maybe they're not as much of a threat anymore.
Anyone want to take bets on when most of them end up back at terror training camps?
