Oklahoma Beheader Linked To AQ Leader Awlaki Through Radical Imam

facebookbeheader

This is all very predictable – even as liberals avert their eyes, and pretend there’s no link to Islam. Of course there is.

Via Breitbart National Security:

Suhaib Webb, an Imam with ties to former Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki, had also previously been the leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, which had been attended by Alton Nolen — the man who on Thursday beheaded a former coworker after recently converting to Islam, Breitbart News has learned. Webb now serves as Imam of the sister organization of the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Imam Suhaib Webb has a history of ties to radicalism. FBI surveillance documents found that he was a known confidant of Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki. Just two days before the September 11, 2001 attacks on America, Webb spoke at a fundraiser with Awlaki with hopes to raise funds for Atlanta-based H. Rap Brown, a man that shot and killed two police officers. The FBI documents also found that “Webb and Awlaki may be associated with the Muslim American Society,” which is a group described by the Investigative Project on Terrorism as being “founded as the United States Chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

***

Writing in the Jewish Advocate last year, columnist Charles Jacobs described Imam Webb as someone who “teaches vicious hatred and calls for young Muslims to engage in Jihad against non-Muslims in order to establish a global Islamic state.”

Note that Nolen asked his co workers to convert to Islam before he attacked. That is one of the tenets of jihad.

If this Imam  is indeed calling for young Muslims to engage in Jihad, it’s time for the US government to act in the same way the British government did in rounding up Anjam Choudary.

Choudary has been released on bail with restrictions including a ban on foreign travel and public preaching.

 

 

The Council Has Spoken!! This Weeks’ Watcher’s Council Results

tribal-council12

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match-up.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. — Winston Churchill

Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory. — George S. Patton

He who wishes to fight must first count the cost. When you engage in actual fighting, if victory is long in coming, then men’s weapons will grow dull and their ardor will be dampened. If you lay siege to a town, you will exhaust your strength. Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will not be equal to the strain. Now, when your weapons are dulled, your ardor dampened, your strength exhausted and your treasure spent, other chieftains will spring up to take advantage of your extremity. Then no man, however wise, will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue… In war, then, let your great object be victory, not lengthy campaigns. — Sun Tzu, the Art of War

There was a tie this week between The Noisy Room, with The Bear And The Dragon Encircle The Eagle, and Bookworm Room’s Socialized medicine and passive-aggressive genocide. As the official tie breaker (and because her piece is simply fantastic), I award this week’s winning entry to Bookworm’sSocialized medicine and passive-aggressive genocide, which lays bare the evil agenda of the State concerning end of life decisions. It is a tremendous expose on how Progressivism does not care about the individual, it cares about the Collective and the bottom line. Here’s a slice:

Chinese-man-carrying-his-mother-225x300

Long ago in China, a boy coming home from school met up with his father, who was carrying on his back a basket holding the boy’s grandfather.

“Oh, father,” asked the boy, “where are you taking Honorable Grandfather?”

The father signaled that the boy should come closer, and then whispered in his ear, “I’m taking grandfather up to the waterfall. If I throw him over the edge suddenly, death will greet him so quickly, it will be painless.”

Aghast, the boy asked, “Why would you do that to Honorable Grandfather?”

“Because I must,” his father whispered back. “Honorable grandfather is too old to help in the field or around the house. Instead, he just sits in the corner, eating our food, drinking our tea, and requiring us to care for his needs. A quick, painless death will be better for everyone.”

The son nodded sagely upon hearing his father’s words. Then, as he turned to continue the walk home, the boy reminded his father of one thing. “Dear father, please make sure to bring the basket back, because I’ll need it for you one day.”

Although I was only around 12 when I first read that story, it resonated with me. Aside from admiring the boy’s cleverness, I was so grateful that I didn’t live in a country in which poor people had to make those kinds of choices. I didn’t realize back then that it would take a mere forty years for my country to creep ever closer to justifying the genocide of the old and the sick.  Even more ironically, I didn’t realize that this ugly choice would come about, not because individual poor people could no longer afford to care for their elders, but because our own government has decided that the nation as a whole should no longer care for its old people.

Old people certainly requiring a lot of care. With every passing year, our bodies become more fragile. While we love seeing videos showing very old people doing amazing physical feats, the reality for most people is that the journey to old age is marked by one bodily system after another breaking down. Our skin’s breakdown is the most immediately demoralizing (“I look so old”), but the real damage from aging happens under our skin, as our joints, muscles, and internal organs just stop working very well. Eventually, every cold has the potential for pneumonia; every fall has the potential to end in a broken hip; every chest pain could be a heart attack; and the joint pains that slowed us down in our 50s can render us immobile by our 70s.

Modern medicine, thankfully, can do a lot to ward off some of aging’s worst effects. Putting aside plastic surgery, which heals the spirit not the body, modern medicine offers everything from quick diagnosis and treatment of pneumonia; to hip repairs so effective that the old person can be home in a day or two, rather than confined to a wheelchair or hospital bed for weeks; to an amazing array of heart treatments, whether pills, pacemakers, bypasses, or transplants; and joint fixes that range from pills, to shots, to surgery, to replacement. All of these are the wonders and miracles of the modern age . . . and all of them are very expensive.

Much more at the link.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Angelo Codevilla at The Federalist with Washington’s Ruling Class Is Fooling Itself About The Islamic State, submitted by Joshuapundit. Codevilla bluntly, succinctly and masterfully spells out how our elite ruling class fails at eradicating the enemy — the Islamic State, while stirring up more hatred for America abroad. This cancerous flaw in foreign policy strategy is endemic on both sides of the political aisle. Do read it.

Megyn Kelly Exposes Jah’Keem Yisrael’s Radical Facebook Page (Video)

coverphoto

Late Friday, new information about murder suspect Alton Nolen came to light via his hometown newspaper. Nolen, who now goes by Jah’Keem Yisrael, converted to Islam in prison in 2011.

Via Truth Revolt:

Nolen Yisrael  is a graduate of Idabel High School in nearby Idabel, Oklahoma, about four hours southeast from Moore where the attack occurred. Nolen was a football player and, by available accounts, not a religious person at the time. A teammate, speaking to Truth Revolt, describes him as “normal” and “a good football player, but not great.”

Local newspaper McCurtain Gazette reports (no online edition is available):

A classmate of Nolen’s, who didn’t wish to be identified, told this newspaper that he spoke to a close family member of Nolen’s today.
He told this newspaper that according to the family member, Nolen was telling coworkers Thursday of an Islamic teaching that said women should be stoned for an offense, and that an argument followed the mark, Nolen was later fired and returned later Thursday, when he beheaded Colleen Hufford, the family member said.
The Gazette reported that Nolen/Yisrael  has a long rap sheet, having been arrested “at least 10 times by Idabel police between 2004 and 2009,” on “allegations ranging from assault, burglary, obstructing an officer, resisting arrest, drug possession, and larceny.”

Jah’Keem Yisrael’s Facebook page, here.

You can read the entire report at Truth Revolt.

Fox News reporter Trace Gallagher shined a spotlight on Yisrael’s radical Facebook page on The Kelly File.

Kelly also had on Chad Sweet, an former Homeland Security agent and former FBI Assistant deputy Director James Kallstrom for their expert analysis.

Kallstrom responded to Kelly’s question of whether it was proper at this point to characterize the attack as “workplace violence” with disgust.

“No way, Megyn,” he said. “Call it murder, but stop this workplace violence crap.”

The FBI will be looking into all this stuff, he continued. They got to get into this mosque, they gotta get into his internet, and they gotta get into all his associates and they need to get into it, fast.

FBI Probing Whether Oklahoma Beheading Linked To Islam (Video) WITH UPDATES

Qur’an 47:4: “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…”

It begins…

OKLAHOMA WOMAN BEHEADED BY MAN WHO TRIED TO ‘CONVERT CO-WORKERS TO ISLAM’

…a woman at an Oklahoma food-processing plant was beheaded by a co-worker who had “recently started trying to convert colleagues to Islam.”

The attack occurred Thursday in Moore, Oklahoma. Alton Nolen, the 30 year-old suspect, was shot and stopped by the company’s Chief Operating Officer, a reserve deputy who happened to be armed.

The victim was 54-year-old Colleen Hufford.

The FBI is now on the case trying to determine whether this is an example of workplace violence as typified by your garden variety disgruntled ex-employee going “postal”,  or workplace violence more on the order of the Fort Hood shooting, where Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar!” as he opened fire in the Soldier Readiness Center, killing 13 people and wounding 29 others.  Earlier this month, he reached out to ISIS in an attempt to  join them from prison.

Via Fox News:

The alleged suspect, Alton Nolen, 30, was recently fired from Vaughan Foods in Moore prior to Thursday’s attack.

Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis told KFOR that Nolen drove to the front of the business and struck a vehicle before walking inside. He then attacked Colleen Hufford, 54, stabbing her several times before severing her head. He also stabbed another woman at the plant, 43-year-old Traci Johnson.

Lewis said Mark Vaughan, the company’s chief operating officer and a reserve county deputy, shot Nolen as he was stabbing Johnson, who remains hospitalized in stable condition Friday.“He’s a hero in this situation,” Lewis told the station. “It could have gotten a lot worse.”Nolen was apparently attacking employees at random, authorities said. The motive for the attack is unclear, but FBI officials are now reportedly probing whether Nolen’s recent conversion to Islam is somehow linked to the crime.

I need not remind you of the plot that was foiled last week in Australia: Australia Raids Foil Beheading Plots:

 Australian counterterrorism forces detained 15 people Thursday in a series of suburban raids after receiving intelligence that the Islamic State militant group was planning public beheadings in two Australian cities to demonstrate its reach.

Luckily, Aussie intelligence picked on the plot before it could be realized –  “800 federal and state police officers raided more than a dozen properties across 12 Sydney suburbs as part of the operation — the largest in Australian history.”

And earlier this week, a spokesman for the Islamic murder cult ISIS, called on Muslims living in the West to kill civilians.

In a 42 minute recorded speech, Abu Muhammad Adnani “both taunted and threatened the U.S.-led coalition combating the Islamic State.”

The speech called on Muslims in the West to kill civilians in so-called lone wolf operations planned and executed by a single person.
“Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict,” Adnani said. “Kill the infidel, whether he is civilian or military.”
I’m going to go out on a limb and say this beheading in Oklahoma is linked to Islam.
UPDATE:

Benghazi Annex Security Team Members Blast Democrat Congressman: “Don’t Call Us Liars” (Video)

Last week, Kris Paronto, Mark Geist, two members of the Benghazi security team who defied stand-down orders and rushed to the sound of guns as the American diplomatic compound was attacked, challenged Congressman Adam Schiff (CA-D) to a debate after he said accused them of being “highly irresponsible” and essentially called them liars telling tall tales to sell a book.

In a press conference, Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) and Rep. Schiff had attempted to shoot down  the claims of the three Benghazi security operators who had appeared on  Fox News earlier this month. They disputed the annex security team’s version of events, specifically their claim about defying a “stand down” order from a CIA officer. Paronto and Geist said “say that to our face” and challenged Schiff to a debate on “Hannity.”

Schiff, who usually jumps at any chance to get in front of the cameras,  declined to appear on the show. So Thursday night, the two faced off with Rep. Smith – and things did get a bit heated.

Paronto said it’s ridiculous to argue about “semantics,” saying the order was given and the men had to wait a half hour before making the decision on their own to rush to the consulate.

“I don’t know how else to explain it. I want to say to Mr. Smith: was he there that night with us? Where was he? Because that’s what happened. We’re telling you what happened on the ground,” said Paronto.

Smith attempted to weasel out of it by claiming that he was referring to U.S. personnel in Tripoli having not receiving a “stand down” order, at the presser – not the men at the annex in Benghazi.

What he had said at the press conference with Schiff, was, “myths continue to be brought up. One of the big ones is the whole issue of a “stand down order” which was never given.”  But what other “myths” (aka narratives that don’t benefit Democrats) had been brought up in the past month other than the allegations of the three men from the Annex security team?

The two special operators weren’t buying it and called BS.. Smith was standing right next to Schiff when he had defamed them.

Paronto told Smith he should have stood up and disputed Schiff if he disagreed with what his colleague was saying.

“The book is correct. Everything in the book is right. Don’t call us liars and if you’re going to, come to the studio with us, apologize for it,” said Paronto.

Smith’s mission Thursday night was to protect the White House and the State Department by denying that any stand down orders came from Washington DC. “That was investigated and clearly proven not to be the case,” he said.

Radical cleric Choudary among nine arrested in UK counter-terror raids (Video)

Long overdue.

Police in London have finally arrested the most notorious  Islamist in Britain. Radical cleric, Anjem Choudary was one of 9 men taken into custody by officers from Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command on Thursday morning.

According to The Guardian newspaper, Choudary was picked up on charges of “encouraging terrorism”:

I don’t expect our government to enforce a similar hard-line approach to combat Islamist extremism in the United States until the current Regime is gone.  Our national security focus will continue to be on tea party extremists, pro-lifers, climate change and  the Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes.

Buh-Bye: Most Corrupt Attorney General In American History Stepping Down

download
I was just getting used to referring him as “Eric (Why Is This Man Still Our Attorney General) Holder” and now this happens. But it’s no surprise. He ‘s been talking about resigning for awhile.
The race is now on for Obama to nominate a replacement and have him or her (probably her) confirmed before the Republican Senate convenes in January.
That of course is the reason for the timing of this announcement. The Regime is admitting that the Republicans are going to win the majority in the Senate in the midterm elections. And The Firewall must be upheld.
Obama must nominate someone as nauseatingly corrupt as Holder is to take his place – someone who will keep the heat off of the criminal activities of the Regime.
I think it will be the corrupt CA Attorney General Kamala Harris – which is very bad news that I will write about when I have more time.
I wrote about Holder’s corrupt, scandal-ridden tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement official at the Conversation:

Holder, who should have resigned in disgrace after the Fast and Furious scandal erupted in the Spring of 2011, soldiered on even after he was held in contempt by congress in the summer of 2012.

His tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement officer will be remembered as one marked by scandal, corruption, hyper-politicization, opposition to 2nd Amendment rights, hostility toward conservatives, and an abysmal batting average in the courts.

Under Holder, the DOJ began treating terrorists as criminal defendants rather than enemy combatants, and purged references to “radical Islam” in FBI training materials.

His first scandal erupted when the DOJ dropped the New Black Panther voter intimidation case in May of 2009, (described by Bartle Bull, a former civil rights lawyer and publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation I’ve ever seen.”)

Under Holder, the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ became hyper-politicized sewer that engaged in politicized hiring practices in the career civil service ranks.

In June 2008, Holder admitted to the American Constitution Society (an organization started as a liberal counterweight to the Federalist Society) that the Justice Department was “going to be looking for people who share our values.”
