It’s daily now — jihad in America. Yesterday Muslims from New York and Ohio were charged with similar jihad-related crimes, but the enemedia and law enforcement are still perplexed as to motive. The Chattanooga jihad massacre is still confounding them as to motive.

We need a revolution of the rational and the freedom-loving.

“Dutch-Turkish man appears in U.S. court on terrorism charges,” Reuters, July 20, 2015:WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A Dutch-Turkish national accused of raising funds and recruiting in Europe for an Islamist militant group active in Afghanistan has been extradited to the United States and charged with terrorism offenses, the U.S. Justice Department said on Monday.

Irfan Demirtas, 56, accused of providing support for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, appeared in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia on Monday, the Justice Department said in a statement.

He faces charges that he “raised money and recruited fighters for a foreign terrorist organization battling the Afghan government and its allies, including U.S. troops,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Vincent Cohen Jr.

Demirtas, also known as Nasrullah, was arrested in Germany in January on a warrant and extradited to the United States on Friday, the statement said….

Demirtas’ activities allegedly took place in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkey, Jordan, the Netherlands, France and elsewhere outside the United States, it said.

  • Tell me again why there’s a single Muslim in OUR country?

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      It’s due to the anti-American left who love ultra conservative right wing islamofascist iran.

      • Covadonga

        And to the Bush family and other Republican Establishment RINOcrats who love Saudi connections and funding.

        And to the US Chamber of Commerce, which supports the RINOcrats and loves cheap foreign labor.

          I AM A RIGHT WING REPUBLICAN AND I DON’T WANT THEM HERE. THAT WOULD BE THE LEFT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. HAVEN’T MET A RIGHT WING REPUBLICAN YET THAT WANTS THEM HERE.

          • Covadonga

            Yes, I agree with you.

            The trouble is, the people at the top of the national Republican Party are weak-kneed Establishment types like Boehner, McConnell, and Bush who have business and financial ties to the royal family of Saudi Arabia and to other slavers.

            They are pushing a narrative on us, attacking and insulting us, in a manner that they never do to Obama or to the other Leftists across the aisle from them.

            If we do not rise up politically and give the nomination to a Constitutionalist Republican, they will hand it to Jeb Bush to continue the Bush dynasty. That is the default candidate who will be rammed down our throats, just like Dole, McCain, Romney, etc., etc., ad nauseum.

            We need a political revolution in the Republican Party between now and the spring. Without it, the Republic will die.

    Just in case you need the Iranian position on jihad, here’s a quote from one Persian who would know:

    Let the Ayatollah Khomeini tell you in his own words;

    “…Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males, provided they are not
    disabled or incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of
    [other] countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country
    in the world. . . . But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand
    why Islam wants to conquer the whole world. . . . Those who know
    nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they
    would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until
    they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them [the
    non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does
    this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us? Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender [to the enemy]? Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for the Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Qura’nic] psalms and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all this mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

    These are not the words of a “Wahhabi” extremist, but of a learned
    Shi’a theologian.

      ALL the ayatollahs of islamofascist iran can go to HELL and ass lift next to khomeni.

    I hope the few rational freedom loving people that remain will be enough, because we are so very far and few between.
    stay safe everyone
    high five for freedom :)
    and please take a moment and think real hard regarding what your individual freedom is, and what you are willing to.do to remain free.

    Indian Secular Hindus are standing with you Pam. Wish some of the famous secular Jews in America would offer us some support. Seems like a lot of famous and naive Jews in Hollywood and Mainstream Media are bending over backwards coming to the defence of groups that ultimately wish harm, or at least a dimishment of power and influence, while throwing Hindus and Secular Indians under the bus every conceivable chance they get.

    The total number of Jews killed at the hands of Hindus over the past 3000 years equals 0.0. And the total number of Jews forced to convert to any branches of Hinduism or Buddhism over the past 3000/years equals 0.0

    More inroads have to be made between the two. In fact, Indians actually provided a safe haven to Jews during the Holocaust. Indians fought in Israel. An Indian Jew who immigrated to Israel soon after the country was founded helped develop its agriculture techniques that helped the desert bloom with plants. There are a growing number of Indian students attending college in Israel.

    AntiSemitism is on the rise in Italy, and even amongst Italian Americans. A Puerto Rican teacher in Perth Amboy NJ was disciplined foraking fun of Jews, while Puerto Ricans in the Bronx are holding rallies for Palestinians. Hispanics still think the Inquisition was a regrettably necessary decision that had to be made.

    Hindus believe in the right of the State of Israel. Hell, we capitulated to Muslims and gave them Bangladesh and Pakistan, and what did that get us? A nuclear-armed sociopath of a country set out on our destruction; inflicting $-billions in otherwise unnecessary defence spending.

    BTW, please tell Israel to STOP selling defense weapons and war jets to Pakistan. It’s a slap in our faces.

    >”Yesterday Muslims from New York and Ohio were charged with similar jihad-related crimes, but the enemedia and law enforcement are still perplexed as to motive. The Chattanooga jihad massacre is still confounding them as to motive.”

    The ridiculous, unworldly quality of law enforcement pronouncements on terrorist acts, especially on those which are committed on American soil, is a lasting shame and embarrassment to the FBI and other agencies and departments.

    Similarly, the deaths of American fighting men in “Green on Blue” violence, due to COIN and other politically correct, counterproductive doctrines promulgated by the upper military brass are a shame and embarrassment on the previously proud history of the American military forces.

    As Stephen Coughlin points out in Catastrophic Failure, this is all part of the Islamic Movement’s grand strategic plan of Civilization Jihad against us, to destroy Western civilization “by its own miserable hand”.

    If we can’t trust our own police and military leaders when they speak of life-and-death matters of national security, who can we trust?
