Category: global tension


The replacement of Europeans by non-European migrants was cooked up by an anti-Western UN 17 years ago.
Apparently, the declining birthrate of Europe is being used as an excellent cover for encouraging an increase in immigration so as to reverse Europe’s decline due to a low birth rate. However the refugee crisis resulting from  the engineered unrest in the middle East has provided a perfect opportunity for a de facto hijrah into a very specifically targeted Europe, the U.S. and  economically successful Japan and South Korea. The document did conclude that it would not help America since it already had extensive immigration. Hmmmm, presently, that does not seem to be keeping keep it immune from being pressured into accepting its “fair quota” of refugees.
It is utterly fascinating how non-communist and/or Western nations seem to be the target of a gradual non-military genocide as well as a cloaked confiscation of their wealth.
Obviously, the globalist elites have the perfect storm in which to achieve their dream of a one world government, or so they think. The values, inquiring minds, logic, and free thinking thought processes of Western Civilization must be eliminated in order to maintain control over a more compliant populace, which will eventually be living in a “Hunger Games” scenario. Mass migration is the perfect tool to bring the West to its knees and to eventually eliminate its culture.
The success of the elites’ nefarious plot remains to be seen. Does the West have the will to survive and fight back for its own future?

The following excerpts from the article are not in order but pulled to emphasize just a few cogent and more frightening points.

Plot to replace Europeans with refugees exposed  
U.N. document reveals 2000 plan to push massive migration
by Liam Clancy
From Trump’s speech in Poland:
“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost?” Trump asked. Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”
Trump then emphasized: “We can have the largest economies and the most lethal weapons anywhere on Earth, but if we do not have strong families and strong values, then we will be weak and we will not survive.”…
…In 2007, at the fourth World Congress of Families, attended by 3,300 lawmakers and activists from 75 nations, Poland’s vice premier, Roman Giertych, warned of a coming “demographic winter.”
Returning to the centrality of marriage and families is the only way to avoid civilizational disaster, he insisted, declaring the family as “the hope for Poland, the hope for Europe, the hope for the entire world.”
“Without the family, there is no nation, there is no continent, there is no civilization, there is nothing,” he said.… (emphasis mine)
Just eight months before the congress, Mark Steyn, in his book “America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It,” warned that amid the shrinking of the European family, one of the fastest demographic evolutions in history already was making traditional views of European culture outdated.
He predicted Europe “will be semi-Islamic in its politico-culture character within a generation.”
While it takes a fertility rate of at least 2.1 children per woman for a nation to replenish itself, countries once known for big families, such as Greece and Spain, had fertility rates of 1.2 and 1.1 respectively at the time. The current rate in Greece may be as low as 1.1. Italy’s fertility rate is 1.4, while the country’s Muslim population has grown from about 2,000 in 1970 to 2 million today.
By 2050, Steyn wrote in September 2006, 60 percent of Italians, for example, will have no brothers, no sisters, cousins, no aunts, no uncles…
….The document – “Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Aging Populations?” – details the plunging birthrates across Europe and identifies a solution: mass immigration.

The 17-year-old document contended mass immigration was necessary to replace the aging populations of developed countries. Without the migration of populations from the developing world, it reasons, economies will suffer because of labor shortages and falling tax revenues.
“Therefore, among the demographic variables, only international migration could be instrumental in addressing population decline and population aging in the short to medium term,” the report concludes.
The report specifically targets the U.S., Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Japan, South Korea and Russia as prime candidates for replacement migration. It is not an obscure study, written and then ignored, but a founding piece of the pro-migration agenda pushed by the United Nations, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and open-borders advocates.
“Following the publication of the draft of this study, the Population Division of the United Nations organized an Expert Group Meeting on ‘Policy Responses to Population Aging and Population Decline’ from 16 to 18 October 2000, at United Nations Headquarters in New York,” the report notes.
“Replacement migration was one among a number of possible policy responses that were considered.”….
…Not long after its birth, the U.N. came to be dominated by delegates, diplomats and staff among whose operative principles was that the West was guilty of historic crimes against humanity, and that justice demanded the endless transfer of the West’s illicitly acquired wealth to a Third World it had oppressed,” said Buchanan, a senior adviser to U.S. Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan and a former presidential candidate.
“Resentment, envy and hatred of the West among intellectual circles at Turtle Bay (the U.N.) – often echoed within the West itself – needs to be resisted like a disease, if the West is to remain the Great Civilization it has been,” he told WND.
Former U.N. Ambassador Alan Keyes told WND he views the “replacement migration” plot as “a decisive existential threat.”… (emphasis mine)
…Only 2.65 percent of migrants who crossed the Mediterranean to Italy in 2016 were deemed refugees, according to a U.N. report. Out of 181,436 migrants, a mere 4,808 were granted asylum in Italy.
The same U.N. report notes that 90,334 of the migrants to Europe did not even request asylum. Instead, they entered into the black market economy immediately.
Many E.U. officials are no longer denying that fact, with one official claiming last month, “In most of the cases, and that is actually the case on the central Mediterranean route, we’re talking clearly and manifestly about economic migrants.”
European Council President Donald Tusk agrees with the assessment, concluding the current policy toward illegal immigration is “not enough.”
Some politicians in Europe are calling for a strict crackdown on illegal immigration, placing the blame for mass migration on NGOs as well as the complicity of the European Union….
…“Muslim believers know very well that their birthrate is such that today, they call it … the Great Replacement, they tell you in a very calm, very positive way that, ‘one day all this, it will be ours,’” said Ravel.
Ravel and other critics on the right provide as further evidence of an engineered “Great Replacement,” the propensity of left-wing media and politicians to decry childbirth, promote abortion and simultaneously declare that migration is needed to raise birthrates, as evidenced in the following screenshots….”
A paper by European Union representative Constantinos Fotakis concluded that “replacement migration” would be beneficial for the entire E.U.: “There is a growing awareness that restrictive immigration policies of the past 25 years are no longer relevant to the economic and demographic situation in which the Union now finds itself. Some European policy makers think that it is now the appropriate moment to review the longer term needs for the EU as a whole, to estimate how far these can be met from existing resources and to define a policy for the admission of 3rd country nationals to fill those gaps which are identified.”
French official Georges P. Tapinos expressed support for mass migration as a humanitarian consideration. Interestingly, the recent massive wave of “refugees” was justified almost purely on the basis of humanitarianism.

Why is the European Leadership mindset so passive in the face of their own nations’ cultural extinction? How can anyone be so dense, so clueless so puerile so as not to have foreseen at the very start of this hijrah what the true objective was.
The collective stance is now breaking apart some what (Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia defying migrant quotas); however, Europe at the present point has largely gone over the edge. Rapes, beatings, honor killings and/or killing of non-Muslims are all treated gingerly because of “cultural differences”. The mores (social conduct) of the various states making up the EU are being destroyed, including such mundane practices as defecating only in toilets.
Behold: UK university reminds “multicultural” students to poop only in toilets, not showers or trash cans, then immediately apologizes for being insensitive   Seriously?

The following article discusses the surrender of Italy’s feckless leadership to the invasion and de facto conquest of their nation–just one example.

State of ‘Collapse’: Italy Overwhelmed as 13,500 Muslim Migrants Arrive in Past Two Days

Al hijrah.
We are witnessing the fall of Europe. They’ve reached a tipping point — a point of no return.
“The government continues to show a worrying powerlessness in the face of a situation that becomes more and more dramatic every day,” said Paolo Romani, president of the senators of Forza Italy.
Trump is right! back the ban!

Italy’s migrant welcome centers are in a state of “collapse” as huge waves of African migrants take advantage of the temperate climate to make the crossing from Libya to the Italian peninsula.

On Tuesday, 8,500 African migrants are reaching Italian shores aboard 14 different ships, adding to the 5,000 who arrived on Monday. The massive arrivals have led local media as well as politicians to speak of an authentic immigrant “invasion” exceeding the country’s capacity of assimilation.
Officials reported on June 15 that more than 65,000 migrants had arrived since the beginning of the year, but that was prior to the latest influx. Figures for the year now stand at 73,380 migrants into Italy, or a rise of 14.42 percent over the same period in 2016, when then-record arrivals had reached 64,133.

 The exodus from Libya to the Italian coast has continuing unabated with no visible action on the part of the Italian government or the European Union to halt it.

The illegal immigrants who reach the Libyan coast from all parts of Africa (most recently, from the West), embark in the Mediterranean on makeshift boats. The majority of these are picked up either by NGOs or humanitarian organizations or official Italian Coast Guard or naval vessels.
Despite their intention to travel up through Italy into northern Europe, the vast majority of migrants end up remaining in Italy, mostly because the northern borders with France, Switzerland and Austria are closely watched.
According to the Interior Ministry, the region that has taken in the most migrants is Lombardy (13 percent), followed by Lazio (9 percent), Campania (9 percent), Piedmont (8 percent), Veneto (8 percent), Emilia Romagna (8 percent), Tuscany (7 percent), Puglia (7 percent) and Sicily (7 percent).
“The government continues to show a worrying powerlessness in the face of a situation that becomes more and more dramatic every day,” said Paolo Romani, president of the senators of Forza Italy. Romani urged Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni to “safeguard national interests, even if necessary by blocking the access to Italian ports.”
Romani has also called on the UN Security Council to intervene, urging “shared strategies to stop the departures” from Libya, as well as a ban on NGOs whose shuttle service to Italy only serves to “aggravate the situation.”
Romani’s counterpart in the House, Forza Italia’s Renato Brunetta, has petitioned Italian Interior Minister Marco Minniti to block migrant ships heading to Italy and instead to request European Union (EU) Officials to have the vessels diverted to other Mediterranean ports.
The head of Italy’s Northern League party, Matteo Salvini, expressed his exasperation in a tweet to his followers, noting that Tuesday’s arrival of 8,500 illegal immigrants onto Italian soil was “fucking enough.”
“This complicit government will do nothing,” he wrote, “so it’s up to us to use every (licit) means we can,” while adding the hashtag #stopinvasione.

Italy’s national anti-mafia and counterterrorism prosecutor, Franco Roberti, has acknowledged that this new wave of landings poses its own dangers, and constitutes “a threat to national security.”
Meanwhile, on Sunday 52 would-be West African emigrants were found dead in the desert area north of the river Niger, on the border with Libya, while 24 of their companions were rescued.
The prefect of the northern region of Bilma, Fatoumi Boudou, confirmed that a “group of about 70 people traveling from Agadez [Niger] to Libya aboard three vehicles had been abandoned in the desert without food or water” by traffickers.

Germany has surrendered its authority to Muslim crime gangs?
How could a sovereign nation so willingly allow itself to be conquered by allowing a de facto invasion of a sworn enemy. How did it reach this point?
These gangs can be defeated but it will take strength, commitment, and the will to undertake what needs to be done. Either the German leadership lacks such qualities, or it is in complete collusion with these groups. There is no in-between.
Will this happen in America?

Germany: Police Powerless Against Middle Eastern Crime Gangs
“The clans simply have no respect for the authorities.” by Soeren Kern
June 18, 2017

    • Observers have surmised that the real reason for the judge’s leniency was that he feared his family might be subjected to retribution from the clan.

    • “In their concept of masculinity, only power and force matter; if someone is humane and civil, this is considered a weakness. In clan structures, in tribal culture everywhere in the world, ethics are confined to the clan itself. Everything outside the clan is enemy territory.” — Ralph Ghadban, Lebanese-German political scientist and leading expert on Middle Eastern clans in Germany.

    • “The state promotes organized crime with taxpayer money.” — Tom Schreiber, a member of the Berlin House of Deputies.

A court in Hanover has handed suspended sentences to six members of a Kurdish clan who seriously wounded two dozen police officers during a violent rampage in Hameln. The court’s ruling was greeted with anger and derision by police who said it is yet another example of the laxity of Germany’s politically correct judicial system.
The case goes back to January 2014, when a 26-year-old clan member, arrested for robbery, tried to escape from the magistrate’s office by jumping out of a seventh-floor courtroom window. The suspect was taken to the hospital, where he died. Members of his clan subsequently ransacked the hospital, as well as the court, and attacked police with rocks and other projectiles; 24 police officers and six paramedics were injured.
The judge said he was lenient because the defendants witnessed the death of the 26-year-old and were traumatized. The judge also revealed that he had reached a deal with the clan, which among other effects prevented police from testifying in court.
Dietmar Schilff, chairman of the GdP police union in Lower Saxony, said that the ruling had left many police officers shaking their heads in disbelief: “All police forces expect protection and support from the state.” He added:

“If we want to protect those who ensure public security, it must be clear that anyone who attacks police officers attacks the state — and has to fear appropriate consequences. It does not matter from which milieu the perpetrators come.”

Observers have surmised that the real reason for the judge’s leniency was that he feared his family might be subjected to retribution from the clan.
Middle Eastern crime syndicates have established themselves across Germany, where they engage in racketeering, extortion, money laundering, pimping and trafficking in humans, weapons and drugs.
The syndicates, which are run by large clans with origins in Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, among other places, operate with virtual impunity because German judges and prosecutors are unable or unwilling to stop them.
The clans — some of which migrated to Germany during Lebanon’s 1975-1990 civil war and have grown to thousands of members — now control large swathes of German cities and towns — areas that are effectively lawless and which German police increasingly fear to approach.

Ralph Ghadban, a Lebanese-German political scientist and a leading expert on Middle Eastern clans in Germany, said that the Hanover ruling was a massive failure of the German judicial system. He added that the only way for Germany to achieve control over the clans is to destroy them:

“In their concept of masculinity, only power and force matter; if someone is humane and civil, this is considered a weakness. In clan structures, in tribal culture everywhere in the world, ethics are confined to the clan itself. Everything outside the clan is enemy territory.”

In an interview with Focus, Ghadban elaborated:

“I have been following this trend for years. The clans now feel so strong that they are attacking the authority of the state and the police. They have nothing but contempt for the judiciary…. The main problem in dealing with clans: state institutions give no resistance. This makes the families more and more aggressive — they simply have no respect for the authorities….
“The state must destroy the clan structures. Strong and well-trained police officers must be respected on the street. It is a poor example if clan members are allowed seriously to injure 24 policemen and six others without having to fear real consequences. In addition, lawyers and judges must be trained. The courts are issuing feeble judgments based on a false understanding of multiculturalism and the fear of the stigma of being branded as racist….
“The clans adhere to a religious group, a kind of sect with an Islamic orientation. The Islamic understanding of their spiritual leader, Sheikh al-Habashi, who died a few years ago, justifies violence against unbelievers. He taught that there is only the house of ​​war [Dar al-Harb], which justifies plundering unbelievers and possessing their wives….”

In Berlin, a dozen or more Lebanese clans dominate organized crime in the German capital, according to Die Welt. They effectively control the districts of Charlottenburg, Kreuzberg, Moabit, Neukölln and Wedding. The clans are committed to counterfeiting, dealing in drugs, robbing banks and burglarizing department stores. Experts estimate that around 9,000 people in Berlin are members of clans.
The clans reject the authority of the German state. Instead, they run a “parallel justice system” in which disputes are resolved among themselves with mediators from other crime families. A classified police report leaked to Bild described how the clans use cash payments and threats of violence to influence witnesses whenever German police or prosecutors get involved.

The clans are now canvassing refugee shelters in search of young and physically strong men to join their ranks. State Prosecutor Sjors Kamstra explained:

“The refugees come here with no money. They are shown how inexpensive money can be obtained very quickly. Poverty makes this seductive. Many of them cannot speak German and are naturally vulnerable when they are addressed by someone in their native language. For the clans, the refugees are welcome newcomers, because they are new here and are not known to the police.”

The clans have also entered the refugee business by buying real estate and renting those properties to asylum seekers at exorbitant prices. Focus magazine reported that they are laundering dirty money while at the same time getting paid by the German state to house migrants.
Focus reporters visited a dilapidated apartment in Berlin in which five Syrian refugees were accommodated in 20 square meters (215 square feet). On the regular rental market the apartment would barely have yielded €300 ($335) a month in rent, but the clan collects around €3,700 ($4,125) per month from the German state, which pays landlords to house migrants. “Business with the refugees is now more profitable than drug trafficking,” said Heinz Buschkowsky, a former mayor of Neukölln.
The Berlin Criminal Police Office (Landeskriminalamt) confirmed that “proceeds from criminal offenses, including organized crime, were invested in real estate by the persons concerned or by third parties.” Tom Schreiber, a member of the Berlin House of Deputies, said the clans have exposed the moral bankruptcy of the German government: “The state promotes organized crime with taxpayer money.”
“Berlin is lost,” said Michael Kuhr, a well-known Berlin-based security consultant. “These clan structures have established themselves in all areas of organized crime. We will never go back to how things were 20 years ago. In addition, these people are highly dangerous and have lost all respect for the power of the state.”
In Duisburg, a leaked police report revealed that in the Marxloh district, the streets are effectively controlled by Lebanese clans that reject the authority of German police. They have taken over entire streets to carry out illegal business activity. New migrants from Bulgaria and Romania are contributing to the problems. Marxloh’s streets serve as invisible boundaries between ethnic groups, according to Die Welt. Residents speak of “the Kurdish road” or “the Romanian road.”
Police say they are alarmed by the aggressiveness and brutality of the clans, which are said to view crime as leisure activity. If police dare to intervene, hundreds of clan members are mobilized to confront the police. A local woman interviewed by Deutschlandfunk radio said she was afraid for her safety: “After dark I would not stand here because there are a lot of conflicts between foreigners, especially between Lebanese and Turks.”
A 17-page report prepared for the state parliament in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) revealed that Lebanese clans in Duisburg divide up neighborhoods in order to pursue criminal activities. These clans do not recognize the authority of the police. Their members are males between the ages of 15 and 25 and “nearly 100%” of them are known to police.
The report also described the situation in Duisburg’s Laar district, where two large Lebanese families call the shots: “The streets are actually regarded as a separate territory. Outsiders are physically assaulted, robbed and harassed. Experience shows that the Lebanese clans can mobilize several hundred people in a very short period of time by means of a telephone call.”
Peter Biesenbach of the Christian Democrats (CDU) said: “If this is not a no-go area, then I do not know what is.” He has called for an official inquiry to determine the true scope of the criminal clans in NRW.
NRW Interior Minister Ralf Jäger rejected that request because such a study would be politically incorrect:

“Further data collection is not legally permissible. Both internally and externally, any classification that could be used to depreciate human beings must be avoided. In this respect, the use of the term ‘family clan’ (Familienclan) is forbidden from the police point of view.”

In nearby Gelsenkirchen, Kurdish and Lebanese clans are vying for control of city streets, some of which have become zones that are off-limits to German authorities. In one incident, police were patrolling an area in the southern part of the city when they were suddenly surrounded and physically assaulted by more than 60 members of a clan.
In another incident, two police officers stopped a driver after he ran a red light. The driver stepped out of the car and ran away. When police caught up with him, they were confronted by more than 50 clan members. A 15-year-old attacked a policeman from behind and strangled him to the point of unconsciousness.
Senior members of the Gelsenkirchen police department subsequently held a secret meeting with representatives of three Arab clans in order to “cultivate social peace between Germans and Lebanese.” A leaked police report revealed that the clans told Police Chief Ralf Feldmann that “the police cannot win a war with the Lebanese because we outnumber them.” The clan members added: “This applies to all of Gelsenkirchen, if we so choose.”
When Feldman countered that he would dispatch police reinforcements to disrupt their activities, the clan members laughed in his face and said: “The government does not have enough money to deploy the numbers of police necessary to confront the Lebanese.” The police report concluded that German authorities should not harbor any illusions about the actual balance of power: “The police would be defeated.”
Another leaked police report revealed that the clans are the “executive body of an existing parallel legal system to self-adjudicate matters between large Kurdish and Lebanese families in the western Ruhr area.” These clans “despise the police and German courts” and “settle their matters on their own terms.”
The Frankfurter Neue Presse reported that Kurdish, Lebanese and Romanian clans have divided up the Gelsenkirchen districts of Bismarck, Rotthausen and Ückendorf, including around the central station, and have “claimed individual streets for themselves.”
Arnold Plickert, the head of the police union in North Rhine-Westphalia, warned: “Several rival rocker groups, as well as Lebanese, Turkish, Romanian and Bulgarian clans, are fighting for supremacy of the streets. They make their own rules; the police have nothing more to say.”
In Düsseldorf, two members of a clan brutally assaulted a 49-year-old woman who witnessed a car accident in the Flingern district. Her mistake, apparently, was to corroborate the “wrong” version of what she saw. The Rheinische Post called on the German government to fight the clans:

“The threat remains, in particular wherever large families, mostly immigrants, place the supposed need for the protection of their loved ones above all else. The readiness for violence is great, the inhibition threshold is low. The punishment of existing laws hardly deters anyone.”

In Naumburg, police confiscated the driver’s license of Ahmed A., a 21-year-old member of a Syrian clan, during a traffic stop. Almost immediately, police were surrounded by a mob of other clan members. The police retreated. The mob then marched to the police station, which they proceeded to ransack.
Ahmed A., a serial offender whose asylum application was rejected but who remains in Germany, said: “Lock me up. I have nothing to lose. I am going to put a bullet in the head of every single police officer. I will make your life feel like hell. Then I’ll just be a cop killer.” He also warned the police officer who seized his license: “I will destroy his life. I know exactly where he lives.” He then explained what he would do to the officer’s wife and daughter. Ahmed A. was allowed to walk free; police said there were insufficient grounds for his arrest.
Naumburg police have defended their weak response as being due to a lack of personnel, but regional parliamentarian Daniel Sturm pointed to the big picture: “We are talking about resistance to the power of the state.” The Interior Minister of Saxony-Anhalt, Holger Stahlknecht, said that it appeared as though the Syrian clan had established a “parallel society” in Naumburg. A local newspaper noted that the police’s failure to act “sounds like the capitulation of the state of law (Rechtsstaat).”
In Mülheim, around 80 members of two rival clans got into a mass brawl following a dispute between two teenagers. When police arrived, they were attacked with bottles and stones. More than 100 police backed up by helicopters were deployed to restore order. Five people were taken into custody but then released.
In Munich, police arrested 20 female members of a Croatian clan believed to be responsible for up to 20% of all the burglaries committed in Germany. Investigators believe that the clan has at least 500 members throughout Germany.
In Bremen, police effectively surrendered to clans from Kurdistan and the Balkans because of the need to conserve limited personnel resources for the fight against spiraling street crime by migrant youths.
Rainer Wendt, head of the German Police Union (DPolG), criticized city officials for their lack of resolve. “Bremen has capitulated to extremely dangerous clans. The state’s monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force [Gewaltmonopol des Staates] is now becoming the law of the jungle. Security continues to go down the drain.”

Chris Gaubatz

Excellent information and contains many links. At the end of the this post  is a link from the original article to Gaubatz’s interview with Jamie Glazov.

Man who infiltrated ‘Muslim Mafia’ speaks out
‘They are incredibly organized, and they’re at this day in and day out’ 

by Art Moore 
He prayed alongside well-known Muslim Brotherhood figures, including the leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR.
But his objective was not worship. In fact, he was not even a Muslim. Chris Gaubatz grew a beard, went through a “conversion” ceremony at a notorious Northern Virginia mosque and became an intern for CAIR — ultimately gathering first-hand documentation of the group’s subversive aims — because he believes the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoots in the U.S. are a threat to the nation’s security.

“I was just young and in my 20s, and I was more than happy to serve my country,” he told Jamie Glazov in an interview on “The Glazov Gang.”
“We have men and women overseas who are getting shot at. From my perspective, the least that I could do is go into a mosque and pretend to be a Muslim,” he said.

Asked about his personal safety, Gaubatz said his faith in Jesus Christ has enabled him to “put any fear and anxiety aside.”
“What I’m worried about is doing the right thing and protecting this country,” he said. “And I know there are patriots all over the country that would be willing to do the same thing.”

Serving as an intern, Gaubatz gathered some 12,000 pages of CAIR documents that were headed for a shredder at the organization’s national office in Washington, just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol building. Information from the documents, as well as from audio and digital recordings of conversations, was published in “Muslim Mafia,” co-authored by his father, David Gaubatz, and investigative journalist Paul Sperry. The book demonstrated CAIR’s connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, the group that spawned al-Qaida and Hamas and stated in writing its intent to put America under Islamic law and the authority of the Quran.

CAIR responded to the book with a lawsuit in 2009 against Chris and David Gaubatz and others that only now is set to go to trial, likely in the fall.
Noting Islam dictates the penalty for abandoning the faith is death, Glazov asked whether someone who pretended to be a Muslim and “betrayed” Islam might be in even more jeopardy.

“From their perspective, this is a jihad, and if they’re willing to blow up children in Manchester, then, of course, they’re willing to go after someone like myself,” said Gaubatz, who now is vice president of the nonprofit Understanding the Threat, which provides training and consulting on the “threat of the global Islamic movement.”

But he said that from a security standpoint, going public with his story “was actually safer thing to do.”
“The last thing they want to do is bring any attention to this,” he said.
Islam the problem
Interviewed in the wake of the Manchester terrorist attack, Gaubatz said he witnessed first-hand how CAIR orchestrates the response of the Muslim community to such incidents to curb any negative publicity for Islam and make Muslims out to be the victims of a “backlash.”

“They work closely with their media contacts in the mainstream media, so that as soon as something like this happens, they’re the ones setting the narrative,” Gaubatz told Glazov.

He said the United States must stop approaching the threat “as though it is just people that are killing people, shooting things and blowing things up.”
“That is barbaric, it is savage, it is evil, but that is not how we’re going to lose this war,” he said of the tactic of terrorism.

“We crush the enemy when we face them on the battlefield. The way we’re going to lose this war is in the information battle space.

He emphasized that American is engaged in a “war of narratives.”
“And as long as we’re not having a discussion about Islam being the problem, we will never defeat that ideology,” he said.

Gaubatz said CAIR is working with “hard-left, Marxist and socialist groups” because they share the same short-term objective, “which is to tear down American society and rebuild it in their utopian worldview.”

In the long-run, their visions for the future obviously differ, but Muslims and the left work together in the mean time, Gaubatz said, “because they know that once they get the U.S. out of the way, there is nothing stopping them.”

Chris Gaubatz testifies before Congress on June 28, 2016
Chris Gaubatz testifies before Congress June 28, 2016

One year ago, as WND reported, Gaubatz testified before a hearing of a Senate Judiciary subcommittee chaired by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, titled “Willful Blindness: Consequences of Agency Efforts To Deemphasize Radical Islam in Combating Terrorism.”

In his prepared testimony, Gaubatz said that when his group, Understanding the Threat, offers training to federal, state and local law enforcement, Muslim Brotherhood groups “work to intimidate the hosts of the training venues into canceling the training by threatening them with cries of ‘Islamophobia’ or ‘racism.’”

He pointed out that a document the FBI entered into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation terror-funding trial in Texas, in which CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator, declares the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.

The document says the Muslim Brotherhood “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

‘Side by side’ with CAIR
Gaubatz grew a beard and converted to Islam at the Dar al Hijrah mosque near Washington, D.C., where previously the imam was Anwar al-Awlaki. The Washington Post had called al-Awlaki the face of modern Islam before he turned up in Yemen working with al-Qaida.

Gaubatz recalled praying “side by side” with CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad and spokesman Ibrahim Hooper.
He recalled hearing Hooper frequently use the phrase “those right-wingers.”

“He just absolutely despised anybody that was on the right side of the aisle,” Gaubatz told Glazov.
CAIR has a training program, he said, in which they teach Muslims how to respond to anything negative that is said about Islam by spinning the narrative and inserting the term “Islamophobia” into the conversation.
“They are incredibly organized, and they’re at this day in and day out,” he said.

He met Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., a Muslim, and was at the Capitol when the first Muslim elected to Congress, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was leading prayers.

“I used to go to mosques on behalf of CAIR and hand out literature,” Gaubatz said. “So, I lived this day in and day out, Monday through Friday for six months straight.”

In his travels to mosques across the country, he said, “one thing I noticed was Islam is Islam.”

“Those aren’t my words. Those are the Islamic scholars, whether you’re in Atlanta or Northern Virginia, or you’re reading literature out of Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia. It’s all the same Islam, and they’ll be the first to tell you that,” he said.

Trump and naming the enemy
Glazov asked Gaubatz his view of how the Trump administration is handling the threat.

He said he is supportive of the president and understands there is a battle within his party and even within his administration over how to frame the threat with regard to Islam.

President Trump, he said, is fully aware of the role of Islam, “but the establishment Republicans are fighting him tooth and nail.”

“If he were to actually come out right now and say the problem is Islam and we’re going to deal with this,” he said, “it would be Republicans that would fight him just as much as the left.”

The FBI cut off ties to CAIR in January 2009 after the group was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case, the largest terrorism-finance case in U.S. history.

More than a dozen CAIR leaders have been charged or convicted of terrorism-related crimes.
FBI wiretap evidence from the Holy Land case showed CAIR’s Awad was at an October 1993 meeting of Hamas leaders and activists in Philadelphia. CAIR, according to the evidence, was born out of a need to give a “media twinkle” to the Muslim leaders’ agenda of supporting violent jihad abroad while slowly institutionalizing Islamic law in the U.S.

A federal judge later determined that the Justice Department provided “ample evidence” to designate CAIR as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, affirming the Muslim group had been involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas.”

In addition, CAIR leaders have made statements affirming the aim of establishing Islamic rule in the United States.

The Islamic organization long had accused WND and others of “smearing” the Muslim group by citing a newspaper account of CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad telling Muslims in Northern California in 1998 that they were in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam’s rule over the country. But WND caught CAIR falsely claiming that it had contacted the paper and had “sought a retraction,” insisting Ahmad never made the statement. Three years later, the issue arose again, and WND found CAIR still had not contacted the paper.

CAIR spokesman Hooper also has expressed a desire to replace the U.S. system of government with an Islamic state.

“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” Hooper said in a 1993 interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”

Hooper, in an interview on Michael Medved’s radio show in October 2003, stated: “If Muslims ever become a majority in the United States, it would be safe to assume that they would want to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law, as most Muslims believe that God’s law is superior to man-made law.”

What will it take to stop the PC insanity that shields the truth regarding the Jihad against the West! These are not just attacks by lone wolves, disgruntled Muslims, or insane people. While such may engage in acts of violence, the underlying driver is JIHAD, coordinated and implemented by those who seek a Caliphate and the death of all non-believers. They must be rooted out and given no quarter in the legal system. They are murderers and must be dealt with as such.
Murder is murder no matter what the motivation. Will day care centers, pre-schools, or public schools be next?
Face the facts or die!
The post below addresses Manchester in detail:

Manchester: This Time They Came for Our Children
By Roger L Simon May 22, 2017

It’s not just “Manchester England, England.” If you think what happened in Blighty can’t happen here — 19 killed, 59 injured — you’ll have to excuse me if I say “You’re out of your bloomin’ mind.” Did you already forget 9/11/2001? Or the Boston Marathon? Or San Bernardino? Or the Orlando gay bar attack less than a year ago that killed 49?

Oh, yeah. Seems so long ago, doesn’t it, even that last one? The “new normal.” We put these things out of our minds the week after to deal with the next trivial Washington scandal or go about our petty lives. Our culture lives in a self-destructive willful blindness, refusing to see the obvious even though it happens again and again across the globe. Radical Islam, Islamism, or whatever you want to call it has been at war with us since the Twin Towers came down and even well before. And they have no intention whatsoever of stopping.

Nevertheless we respond in the most perfunctory manner, nattering on about how Islam is a”religion of peace,” criticizing ourselves and others for “Islamophbia,” or dismissing it all as a police matter.

But this time it was teenage girls — our children — (emphasis mine) in that Manchester audience, murdered by a suicide bomber. If he had been more successful gaining entry, he might have killed several hundreds of them instead of, at this writing, only 19.

Have we learned anything? Is this finally going to be enough? Will we at last wake up? You tell me that the next time you drop your young daughter off at a rock concert you’re going to feel comfortable. Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative, libertarian, or ladeedah, you’re going to have heart palpitations, I promise you.

Politicians blather on about how these terrorists are “cowards.” No, they’re not. Nothing cowardly about killing yourself for your vision of god, insane as it might be. What they are is maniacally evil, the same kind of evil that marched innocents into gas chambers in the 1940s. If you don’t confront it, it goes on and on, just as happened then. (emphasis mine)

Horrifying Video from Ariana Grande Concert During Terror Attack

So what do we do about it?

Begin with this:

Ban the word “Islamophobia” from the English language. It’s the biggest lie of our time, invented to distract from the obvious truth: Islam has a monumental problem with the modern world that affects all of us. Egypt’s al-Sisi knows it. Saudi King Salman seems now to know it. Only the “useful idiots” in the Western left deny this blatant reality. ISIS, al-Qaeda, and their ilk are the clear perpetrators, but the so-called liberals and progressives — in their endless morally narcissistic virtue signaling — are their enablers, actually their unindicted co-conspirators. It’s time we should indict them.

They keep repeating we shouldn’t tar all Muslims with this unconscionable murderous violence. Well, we shouldn’t. But if even ten percent of Muslims are accepting of violent jihadism, that’s ten percent of a billion and a half people, roughly four times the population of California and twice as big as all of France. Want to dismiss that as mere Islamophobia? You’re only contributing to its growth. And to the deaths of your children. (emphasis mine) Time to end this PC masquerade, which is a license to kill in disguise. Not all religions are the same, at least in their present forms. Buddhists aren’t blowing up teenagers in Manchester.

Also, time to get behind President Trump’s new initiative to enlist the Islamic world in their own reform. It’s high time an American president did that. Bush didn’t have the courage and Obama refused to believe there was a problem. He thought we were the problem — incredible, actually delusional, as that is in retrospect.(emphasis mine)

Politicians and the media particularly must face reality. We may not like it but we are at war. You should behave accordingly. This is Topic A — and there is no Topic B until further notice… that is unless you want Manchester actually to be the “new normal.” It pretty much is already. How horrible is that for all of us, how horrible for our children. Why don’t we all get together and put an end to it? It’s even more important than impeaching Trump.

Warfare has entered a new era for which America is ill prepared and poorly armed. The U.S. has never been very good at winning the war of words, and in this new cyber age, that weakness is deadly.
Our military supersedes all others, but new and insidious fronts have opened in this information age and words have become lethal weapons..
Additionally, all of our public services are computer driven. Our lack of defense on this front is frightening. Either Congress gets its act together and unites on strengthening this front, or the nation will remain vulnerable to a disaster that can lead to catastrophic upheaval by the a populace struggling to survive.
Does that sound over the top? Does anyone really want to test that concept. Only the enemy within will benefit.

Excerpt:“We are hamstrung by a myriad of reasons, to include lack of accountability and oversight, bureaucracy, resulting in insufficient levels of resourcing and an inability to absorb cutting-edge information and analytic tools, and access to highly skilled personnel,” Lumpkin said.
At the same time, Lumpkin said America’s enemies are increasing their capabilities and investment.”

New strategies, tactics needed to fight influence, propaganda warfare threats, Senate told
BY: Bill Gertz
April 28, 2017 5:23 pm
The United States faces a growing threat of information warfare attacks and needs new strategies and organizations to counter it, national security experts told Congress this week.
John C. Inglis, former deputy director of the National Security Agency, said cyber attacks are only one form of influence, propaganda, and disinformation attacks being waged in the cyber war of ideas.
“Cyber warfare, in my view, is not a standalone entity,” Inglis told a Senate subcommittee hearing Thursday. “When you’re talking about information warfare, it’s at that top-most stack, and it does not necessarily comprise of an exchange of tools or an exchange of literal warfare. It is, in fact, a conflict of ideas.”
Inglis called for a new approach to information threats.
“We need to stop reacting well and thinking that we’ve therefore done good and start to drive and perhaps lead in this space and at least anticipate well or track well,” he said during a hearing of the Senate Armed Services subcommittee on cyber security.
The United States must aggressively tackle the problem, Inglis said.
“We can use the techniques that have been used against us, but we should never compromise our values, and there’s a distinct difference between those two,” he said.
Rand Waltzman, a specialist on information warfare with the RAND Corp., told the subcommittee the U.S. government needs to review and revamp laws and polices in the information warfare realm in order to better fight influence warfare. (emphasis mine)

“Operations in the information environment are starting to play a dominant role in everything from politics to terrorism to geopolitical warfare and even business, all things that are becoming increasingly dependent on the use of techniques of mass manipulation,” Waltzman said, adding that information warfare operations “occur at a speed and at an extent previously unimaginable.”
Technical cyber security means, the focus of U.S. government and private sector efforts, are ill-equipped to handle influence warfare. Waltzman called for new capabilities called cognitive security.

(emphasis mine)
An example was the domestic information attack launched by the Russian government in 2011 prior to the country’s legislative elections. Anti-government dissidents had organized a demonstration using a Twitter hashtag. When the Russian government found out, it flooded Twitter with gibberish tweets using the hashtag at a rate of 10 tweets per second, effectively preventing the demonstrators from using the social media platform to issue instructions.
Twitter did not stop the onslaught because it did not violate the platform’s terms of service.
Michael D. Lumpkin, a former State Department strategic messaging official, criticized the U.S. government’s capability to counter disinformation and promote its messages as outdated and stifled.
“We are hamstrung by a myriad of reasons, to include lack of accountability and oversight, bureaucracy, resulting in insufficient levels of resourcing and an inability to absorb cutting-edge information and analytic tools, and access to highly skilled personnel,” Lumpkin said.
At the same time, Lumpkin said America’s enemies are increasing their capabilities and investment.
“This, while our adversaries are increasing their investment in the information environment, will not be constrained by ethics, the law, or even the truth,” he said.
Clint Watts, a former FBI agent and specialist on information operations, said Russia is the leading power in the use of information operation.
“Russia does five things that sets it apart from others in terms of influence,” Watts said. “One, they create content across deliberate themes, political, social, and financial messages, but they hyper-empower those with hacked materials that act as nuclear fuel for information atomic bombs.”
These information bombs power political groups and other profiteers in the social media space, further amplifying their messages.
Moscow also pushes its disinformation and propaganda in unitary campaigns that appear to come from different locations at the same time, through the use of covert and overt accounts as well as social media platforms.
Russia shares content through semi-linked and covert online personas in order to create a public impression that its propaganda is more established than it is, while pushing themes over long periods of time.
The result is that Russian information warfare messages are pressed “deep into the target audience,” Watts said.
Russian trolls and others engaged in information operations target political opponents, whether politicians, media personalities, or “just people that don’t like Russian positions,” for long periods, he said.
Watts said countering cyber influence threats is a human, not a technical, challenge.
“American obsession with social media has overlooked several types of real-world actors that help enable their operations online,” he said.
They include pro-Russian “useful idiots,” including unwitting Americans who don’t know they are using Russian information for political gain. Others are “fellow travelers” who back Russia and provocateurs who create incidents in a bid to drive Internet traffic.
Both the Islamic State’s social media campaigns and Russia’s influence operations need to be countered, in addition to the use of cyber means.
“When it comes to Americans countering cyber influence operations, when all is said and done, far more is said than done,” Watts said. “We talk about it a lot, but we do fewer iterations than our Russian adversaries.”
Watts said that when the United States has acted in the information operations space, “it hasn’t been effective, and at worse it’s been counterproductive,”
“Despite spending hundreds of millions of dollars since 9/11 on U.S. influence and information operations, we’ve seen the expansion of al Qaeda and the Islamic State,” Watts said. “We’ve excessively focused on bureaucracy and digital tech tools, but at the same time these social media monitoring tools have failed to counter al Qaeda. They did not detect the rise of ISIS, nor did they detect the interference of Russia in our election last year.”
Better knowledge of Russian information warfare and influence operations is needed. The American government also needs better and more accurate communications.
Watts called for jettisoning the so-called whole-of-government approach to the problem and instead creating a task force to address cyber influence threats.
Current government efforts focus too much on purchasing technical tools to analyze social media, he said.
The private sector also need to restore the integrity of information on social media sites, Watts said. He noted progress by Facebook, Google, and Wikipedia, which recently launched efforts to block foreign information operations.
Facebook on Thursday published a report on information operations that called for countering influence campaigns by governments and non-state actors to distort political sentiment, “most frequently to achieve a strategic and/or geopolitical outcome.”
The social media giant said Russian influence operators used Facebook pages and false personas to spread stolen emails and documents during the 2016 election.
Watts said Twitter remains a holdout in efforts to limit foreign information operations.
“Twitter’s actions, if they take them on parallel with Facebook and Google and the others, can help shape the Russian influence of the French and German elections going into summer,” he said.
Waltzman, the RAND Corp. analyst, called for a new strategy to “make cognitive security a reality and counter this growing threat in the information environment.”
A private research center outside government should be created that is devoted to research and development of policies, technologies, and techniques for information operations.
“The center would not be operational, but rather set research and development agendas and provide education and distribution of technologies and service to any of the communities that it would serve,” he said.
Second, a government office, like the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment, should conduct a study of current laws and policies that “currently make operations in the information environment difficult to impossible” and how they can be updated to reflect the current information environment. The study also should outline a new organizational structure for information operations.
Subcommittee chairman Sen. Mike Rounds (R., S.D.) said the panel has held two classified briefings on cyber threats and efforts to counter them.
Thursday’s hearing focused largely on the Russian influence operation during the 2016 election, which was part of a program that dates back to the Soviet period.
Rounds said current cyber- and disinformation-related tools “have enabled Russia to achieve operational capabilities unimaginable to its Soviet forebear.”
“Ultimately, we will continue to struggle with cyber-enhanced information operation campaigns until we address the policy and strategy deficiencies that undermine our overall cyber posture,” he added.
“Our adversaries aim to leverage our distaste for censorship against us to delegitimize our democracy, influence our public discourse, and ultimately undermine our national security and confidence.”
Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.) noted the problem is not new and that U.S. efforts to counter it are deficient.
“Our government and society remain ill-prepared to detect and counter these powerful new forms of information warfare, or to deter them through the threat of offensive versions of our own information operations,” he said.

According to a report by South Korea’s primary news outlet, Yonhap, the Pentagon has directed a total of three US aircraft carriers toward the Korean Peninsula, citing a South Korean government source.

Yonhap reports that in addition to the CVN-70 Carl Vinson, which is expected to arrive off the South Korean coast on April 25, the CVN-76 Ronald Reagan – currently in home port in Yokosuka, Japan – and the CVN-68 Nimitz carrier group – currently undergoing final pre-deployment assessment, Composite Training Unit Exercise off Oregon – will enter the Sea of Japan next week.  According to the senior government official. the US and South Korea are discussing joint drills, which will include the three aircraft carriers and other ships.

USS Carl Vinson, surrounded by a fleet of US warships, was sent by Washington toward the Korean Peninsula in the beginning of April.

While details are scarce, and we would urge confirmation from US-based sources, Yonhap also reports that according to the government source the operation of three aircraft carriers in the same location is unusual, and demonstrates the US commitment to North Korea.  Other sources said the Trump administration is demonstrating deterrence by acting on its behalf. “We expect it to be completely different from the previous administration.”

On Sunday, Pyongyang launched an unidentified projectile, but the test reportedly failed. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) stated that the attempted launch was conducted from the area near North Korea’s eastern port city of Sinpo, but likely ended in a failure.
