Germany deports convicted 9/11 accomplice Motassadeq to Morocco

Mounir el-Motassadeq was collected from his German jail cell, where he had spent almost 15 years, on Monday, ready for deportation to Morocco. His jail term for complicity in 3,000 counts of murder in the September 11, 2001 attacks and for membership of a terrorist organization was set to expire this November.

It seems a world away, but tracing 9/11 today takes us to Steindamm, a busy road in the center of Hamburg. On a blustery afternoon late this September, few people linger. The shops sell vegetables, kaftans, and flights to Mecca and Turkey.

Are Democratic Countries Like Canada Funding Terrorism?

Most democratic governments claim they are against extremism and terrorism. If so, then why does it appear possible that governments are funding it? Would senior members of a democratic government send taxpayers’ money down a path they know will lead to more extremism and terrorism?

Journalists Hid Identity of Key Source While Spreading Their Khashoggi Disappearance Narrative

A story broke last week that a Saudi journalist named Jamal Khashoggi, who was working for The Washington Post, had disappeared and was presumed dead. The official story is that Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, on the afternoon of Oct. 2.

Immediately (and suspiciously), media stories that appeared to be coordinated appeared, pointing the finger of blame for Khashoggi’s disappearance at Saudi Arabia, in general, and at the country’s Crown Prince, Mohammad bin Salman, in particular. It was claimed by anonymous sources for several days that Khashoggi had been abducted and killed at the express order of bin Salman, for being a troublesome journalist who was pursuing stories that were causing problems for the Saudi royal family. Detailed stories relating how the abduction/killing supposedly happened filled the news media.

 

More… Jamal Khashoggi- A Global Muslim Brotherhood Operative Writing For The Washington Post?

…The evidence offered above strongly suggests that Jamal Khashoggi was not only a long-time member of the Muslim Brotherhood and close to the Global Muslim Brotherhood but was, in fact, actively supporting Brotherhood-related projects as recently as April of this year as evidenced by his key note address on behalf of the CSID.

Knifeman shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ stabs one person, victim is fighting for his life… but it’s OK he was just “drunk”

In the early hours of Monday, a knifeman reportedly screamed “Allahu Akbar” before stabbing one person, in a Paris suburb, newspaper Le Figaro reports.

During the incident, the criminal shouted multiples times “Allahu Akbar”.

The police arrested the man finding him with bloody hands. The man was drunk and didn’t resist arrest.

Driven to violence by Islamophobia no doubt.

Christians Sentenced to Death Under Sharia Law

Frequently, Shiite Islamic preachers and leaders can be heard stating that Islam recognized “People of the Book,” which refers to Christians and Jews. This assertion sounds as if Islam gives Christian and Jews the same level of status and respect as their Muslim counterparts.

That argument was recently confirmed when the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, claimed that “Christians have the same rights as others do.” With that confirmation, it might be easy to assume that Christians are relatively safe in Iran. But are they?

Why Is the Middle East Studies Association Trying to Stop the Online Publication of Islamic State Documents?

Why would the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), the primary umbrella organization for the field of Middle East studies, oppose the New York Times partnering with George Washington University (GWU)’s Program On Extremism to produce a public archive of the thousands of Islamic State (ISIS) documents the newspaper retrieved from northern Iraq?

Analysis based on solid evidence, after all, is far superior to speculation and guesswork that may be proven erroneous. While there are many media articles about ISIS and propaganda material from the group itself, there is a deficiency of internal documents in the open-source realm for researchers to use in order to understand the inner workings of ISIS’s state project during the peak of its power.

Barbara Kay: Did #MeToo activists target a top Canadian prof for his blunt lessons about Islam?

McGill University, my grad school alma mater, has, in my opinion, acted dishonourably in a recent and unusual case of tenure denial to a brilliant and popular professor.

When I learned of Ahmed Fekry Ibrahim’s story, I was fortunate to receive a remarkable trove of evidence: his supporting documents for a defamation lawsuit he launched this summer against a student and a professor in his department who, he alleges, helped ensure his denial of tenure. He believes he was targeted for not being politically correct enough in teaching about Islam.

Spain: Islamic State Recruiting in Prisons

Spanish police have dismantled a jihadi network operating inside and across more than a dozen Spanish prisons. The network, allegedly linked to the Islamic State, was established and operated by one of the most implacable jihadis in the Spanish prison system — apparently under the noses of prison authorities.

The network’s existence has called into question not only the effectiveness of security procedures in Spanish prisons, but also of Spanish “deradicalization” programs, which are aimed at “rehabilitating” Islamic militants for eventual “reinsertion” into society.

Londonistan: 423 Mosques, 100 Sharia Courts

British comedian John Cleese was condemned in 2011 for saying “London is no longer an English city.” But his assessment has now been echoed by a Saudi Arabian newspaper, which writes that the U.K. “has been acquiring an increasingly Islamic face” — with a staggering 423 new mosques and 100 official Sharia courts in its capital.
