Not Only Bomb, ISIS Team Wanted to Use Beef Too to Trigger Communal Riots In India

June 30, 2016

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) early on Wednesday busted an Islamic State (IS) module in Hyderabad, detaining 11 youths who were allegedly plotting powerful bomb blasts to target VVIPs and crowded places in the city and intended to trigger communal riots by placing cow and buffalo meat at the Bhagyalakshmi temple at the base of the iconic Charminar.

The IS module was, according to the agency , procuring the meat to be placed at temples to spark riots during the ongoing holy month of Ramzan.The arrested youths, who held regular jobs and were in touch with IS handler and chief recruiter for India Shafi Armar, had been under the NIA's scanner for the past 4-5 months.

Rights Groups Urge UN to Oust Saudi ‘Child Killers’ From Human Rights Council

30 June,2016

TEHRAN (FNA)- Two leading human rights groups demanded that Riyadh be removed from its United Nation’s post that focuses on the rights and well-being of civilians, citing systematic abuses the regime has been perpetrating in Yemen and elsewhere.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch released joint statements calling on the United Nations General Assembly to suspend Saudi Arabia from the UN Human Rights Council until Riyadh ends its military campaign in Yemen, Sputnik reported.

Reports indicate that the operation has led to indiscriminate violence against children and civilians, with several school houses and hospitals coming under fire from Saudi-backed forces.

"Saudi Arabia has amassed an appalling record of violations in Yemen while a Human Rights Council member," said Philippe Bolopion, the deputy director for global advocacy at Human Rights Watch. "UN member countries should stand with Yemeni civilians and suspend Saudi Arabia immediately."

The lobbying effort to oust Saudi Arabia from its role on the Human Rights Council comes in the wake of a recent controversy surrounding war crimes committed by Saudi-led forces, as was initially documented by UN researchers.

On June 2, the United Nations added Saudi Arabia to the "child killers backlist" as part of its annual Children and Armed Conflict (CAAC) report. Only four days later, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon announced that Riyadh would be removed from the list pending further investigation of the report’s claims.

In an attempt to blunt the controversy surrounding the decision, Ban Ki-moon declared that the redaction was temporary measure meant to ensure the report’s accuracy. The Saudi government, however, contradicted this statement by insisting the removal was permanent.

Several days later, the UN chief went public about the circumstances surrounding his decision, hinting that Riyadh had used extortion to secure the result.

"The report describes horrors no child should have to face, but at the same time, I also had to consider the very real prospect that millions of other children would suffer grievously if, as was suggested to me, countries would defund UN programs," Ban Ki-moon said. "Children already at risk is Palestine, South Sudan, Syria, Yemen and so many other places would fall further into despair."

Specifically, the report established in intricate detail that 60% of the 785 child deaths and 1,168 child injuries documented throughout the conflict were directly attributable to Riyadh’s bombing attacks. Furthermore, these raids appeared to intentionally target civilian populations.

It was later reported that the UN Secretary General was, in fact, blackmailed by none other than Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, who informed the United Nations that if the truth about Riyadh’s crimes against the children of Yemen was revealed, Riyadh would move to eliminate nearly $500 million in funding for UN programs, with a promise to coordinate defunding efforts with Arab allies.

In addition to direct casualties, the bombing campaign has created a health crisis. Nearly 10,000 youth deaths, all under five years of age, in the past year were caused by preventable illnesses, according to the United Nations report. This is partially blamed on the destruction of critical components of Yemen’s infrastructure and the limited ability of aid workers to get to those in need.

Save the Children also reported in March that over 90% of Yemeni children required emergency humanitarian aid as a result of the Saudi-led devastation in Yemen.

Despite the wanton disregard for the lives of children and civilians, Saudi Arabia will likely remain on the Human Rights Council, as it would require a two-third majority vote by the 193-member UN General Assembly to suspend Riyadh from the post.

Islamic Law Out Of Date, Declares Somalian Gay Imam, Nur Wasame

30 Jun 2016

The nation’s first openly gay imam, Nur Wasame, says Islamic law is out of date and Australia’s Muslim leaders who preach that homosexuals should be punished with death are “archaic” throwbacks who are “no longer ­relevant”.

The Melbourne man, who comes from Somalia where being gay is punishable by imprisonment and extrajudicial killings, concedes it is particularly dangerous to be gay and a Muslim but yesterday issued a defiant message to Australian leaders who sought to discredit him: “I am here, I am gay, I am Muslim, I am an imam.”

The Australian has reported that at least two members of the executive of the Australian ­National Imams Council believe gays should be punished, including by death following the “proper procedure” in sharia law.

Imam Yusuf Peer said of Sheik Nur at the time: “How can he call himself an imam? Unfortunately he might develop a following as well.”

Sheik Nur told The Australian yesterday he knew there would be positives and negatives when he came out publicly and officially this year. “The risks are great in the Muslim community,” he said.

“If you come out you will be ­excommunicated, you will be ostracised, you risk losing even your life, at times, in different parts of the world. It is promising to see activists — and I know many of them, in places like Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan — who are trying to address these issues.”

A deeply rooted homophobia in Islam was brought into the ­public spotlight when Malcolm Turnbull shared an iftar (fast-breaking) dinner at Kirribilli House this month with a Sydney imam who is anti-gay and anti-women.

Sheik Shady Alsuleiman, who is president of the national imams council, was castigated by the Prime Minister after the reports about his views but others in the community came out to defend his views.

Sheik Nur studied to be an imam in Egypt and South Africa, gaining the title in 2000, and says Islamic law needs to move with the times. “They (other imams) are ­entitled to their opinions but I am a person who studied theology,” he said.

“I am an expert in my field, I am gay, they can say what they say but my presence refutes their opinion.

“Islam is a religion that came in the eighth century. The sharia law and the laws that applied back then are not applicable to our society today. The individuals you mentioned and others in our communities are people who have ways of thinking that are no longer relevant.

“I don't discredit them, but their voices and opinions are, you know, proof that these old, archaic ways of thinking exist and they are simply no longer relevant and the youth are finding that out and they are saying, hey, this is not on.”

Sheik Nur has been working with LGBT Muslim youth for years, most recently through his Marhaba ­Melbourne organisation.

“I have dealt in the past two years with hundreds of these people from all over the country and people travelling form parts of New Zealand, and I am only one man,” he said.

“That is what gives me the strength to continue what I am doing. It has been very promising to have young, educated LGBT Muslims and straight Muslims come and say thank you.

“The vast majority of those in positions of leadership in our community are trained overseas and they somehow cannot or find it difficult to relate to contemporary, modern youth.”

Sheik Nur said that while he played a role in his community he wanted to see same-sex marriage legalised by the federal government to help incubate the cultural change needed to protect young people from discrimination.

UAE-Backed Plan to Install Saudi Prince as King

30 June,2016

TEHRAN (FNA)- Saudi Sources revealed that Saudi Arabia’s young deputy crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, is being advised by the UAE on how he can win backing from the US and become king by the end of the year.

Two "well-placed Saudi sources" have said that de facto UAE ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan is advising Mohammed on a two-pronged strategy to become Washington's preferred choice as the next Saudi ruler, Middle East Eye reported.

The first Saudi source said bin Zayed has told bin Salman that he must “end the rule of Wahhabism” if he wants to be accepted by the Americans.

Wahhabism is the radical ideology dominating Saudi Arabia which has inspired Takfiri groups such as ISIL and al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front to wreak havoc in the Middle East.   

Bin Zayed has also told bin Salman that he must open a “strong channel of communication” with Israel if he is to be Washington’s preferred candidate to be king, the report added.

The second Saudi source reportedly said bin Salman is willing to win the backing of Washington after telling close associates recently that he would complete the mission of becoming king before the end of the year.

The 30-year-old bin Salman, who also serves as the Saudi defense minister, has been granted increasing power since he was named the third in line to the throne last April.

He is heading up the country’s economic reforms plan, the kingdom's policy towards Syria and its deadly aggression against Yemen.

The young prince’s meteoric rise, however, has sparked tensions within the Saudi royal family.

According to the report, bin Salman would seek to fundamentally change the role of religion in the kingdom on bin Zayed's advice.

One of the two Saudi sources said that bin Salman plans to cancel the Council of Senior Scholars, which is the kingdom's highest religious body, and stop all activities that serve Wahhabism.

“The aim will be for bin Salman to be hailed as a hero by the press, Congress, and academics, so that the US administration is forced to follow.”

Such a plan is highly risky given the influence of religious bodies in the kingdom and could lead to a serious showdown. 

The second strategy advised by bin Zayed to win Washington’s backing was developing close relations with Israel.

Israel has covert ties with Arab states despite their claims that they would normalize relations with Tel Aviv only when it reaches a deal with the Palestinians.

In April, the Jerusalem Post wrote that “rather than being isolated, Israel is being incorporated into the Saudi-led orbit,” citing the opening of a mission in Abu Dhabi and increasing contacts in the Persian Gulf States.

One of the Saudi sources said Washington could be swayed into supporting bin Salman's bid to be king if he could achieve good communication with Israel, even if the Americans like their long-time ally bin Nayef.

Bin Nayef may be the first in line to throne but his quietness, and bin Salman’s prominence, has led many to conclude the experienced 56-year-old's power is waning.

During bin Salman’s recent visit to the US, where he met President Barack Obama, a report emerged that American intelligence officers believed the current Saudi ruler King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef suffer from ill health.

“We’ve put a lot of markers down on Mohammed bin Nayef. It’s the smart move to do the same with bin Salman. It’s an opportunity to get to know him,” Bruce Riedel, an ex-national intelligence officer and a member of Obama’s transition team, said.

Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha accuses RSS of appeasing Muslims

June 29, 2016

Accusing RSS of ‘appeasing’ Muslims by organising an ‘Iftar’ party for them on July 2, a Hindu outfit has sought cancellation the event and an apology from the Sangh.

The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, a lesser-known Hindu organisation, has said that Keshav Hegdewar had founded RSS to serve the interests of Hindus but the Sangh is now serving Muslim interests instead, for which it should apologise. “Now, the Sangh has abandoned pro-Hindu tasks and is serving the Muslim interests instead. Iftar parties are being organised for Muslims…But Sangh never organises Navratra fasts and festivities.

“It will be construed that the Sangh has diverted from the path shown by its founders. RSS is urged to cancel its Iftar party and it should seek an apology from Hindus for this mistake, or else the Hindu Mahasabha will oppose any such move,” a statement by general secretary Munna Kumar Sharma and Viresh Tyagi, Office Secretary of the Mahasabha said.

Islamic State expands to East Africa: Kenyans recruited for overseas jihad

Jun 30, 2016

Nairobi, Kenya: Recent arrests show the Islamic State's growing presence in East Africa, where they are recruiting young Kenyans for jihad abroad and raising fears some of them will return to threaten the country.

Kenyan intelligence agencies estimate that around 100 men and women may have gone to join the IS in Libya and Syria, triggering concern that some may come back to stage attacks on Kenyan and foreign targets in a country already victim to regular, deadly terrorism.

"There is now a real threat that Kenya faces from IS and the danger will continue to increase," said Rashid Abdi, senior analyst at the International Crisis Group think tank in Nairobi.

The problem of eager but often untrained extremists gaining terrorist skills with IS and coming home to launch attacks is one European nations are already grappling with, and may soon be Kenya's problem too.

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz elevated fringe anti-Muslim conspiracy theories to the level of a U.S. Senate hearing on Tuesday, inviting a panelist who said that leading Muslim American civil rights organizations are infiltrated by terrorists and that the Obama administration is covering it up.

Muslim Terrorism In America: See Something, Say Nothing

June 29 2016

Our friend Philip B. Haney, a founding member, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Customs & Border Protection (CBP), who retired honorably July 31, 2015, yesterday testified before Senator Ted Cruz’s Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts to explain just how deeply the Obama administration’s Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) antiterrorism program has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Phil Haney is the author of the must-read book See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government's Submission to Jihad that we strongly recommend to CHQ readers. If every American read Haney’s book Hillary Clinton and a number of willfully blind Republicans, like Speaker Paul Ryan, would be defeated in landslides.

In Maine, Donald Trump blames Hillary Clinton for rise of Islamic State

Thursday, June 30, 2016

BANGOR — Before a raucous crowd of about 4,000 people, Donald Trump took full aim at his Democratic challenger Wednesday, blaming Hillary Clinton for the rise of the Islamic State and a decline in American influence and prosperity.

“She hasn’t done anything about what’s going on,” Trump said to cheers and applause during his nearly 60-minute speech at the Cross Insurance Center in downtown Bangor. Trump broke little new ground but reiterated his latest talking points on free trade, repeating many of the statements he made a day earlier in Pennsylvania. He also repeated his promise to crack down on illegal immigration and said he would make the U.S. safer by rebuilding its military.

“We’ve got to be tough and we’ve got to be smart,” Trump said repeatedly. “We have more obsolete equipment in our military, we get parts for our jet fighters from the graveyard and from museums, that’s how bad it is.”

Iraq Blasts Saudi Top Diplomat's Call to Dissolve Pro-Government Popular Force

30 June,2016

TEHRAN (FNA)- A top Iraqi official rejected Saudi foreign minister’s call for dissolution of pro-government volunteer forces, saying Riyadh is not in a position to make comments about the issue.

“Adel al-Jubeir’s remarks in which he called for the dismantling of the Popular Mobilization Units reflect the scope of his narrow-mindedness," Iraqi National Security Advisor Faleh al-Fayyad said on Thursday, Al Sumeriya reported.

"Such comments are not beneficial to bilateral relations between Baghdad and Riyadh. It is outside the purview of Jubeir or anyone else to debate the issue,” he said.

His remarks came only hours after the top Saudi diplomat accused the Popular Mobilization Units of fueling sectarian tensions in Iraq, calling for their dissolution.

Fresh secularism debate stirred in Turkey over authority given to religious heads on marriage

June 30, 2016

A series of new regulations enabling provincial and district religious affairs authorities to conduct official marriages has sparked fresh debates on secularism in Turkey.

Speaking at his Justice and Development Party (AKP) parliamentary group meeting on June 28, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said local müftis and muhtars (village heads) of villages with neighborhood status will be given authority to conduct marriages.

Legal experts and academics have suggested that such a regulation would contradict with Turkey’s constitutionally protected principles of secularism. Turkey Bar Association (TBB) head Metin Feyzioğlu has claimed that the regulation is “the first step in switching from secular to sharia law.”

Turkey’s Erdoğan slams İHH over objection to Israel deal

June 30, 2016

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has criticized the Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (İHH), which organized the ill-fated 2010 flotilla to Gaza, for its objection to a recent agreement between Turkey and Israel and its decision to launch a flotilla in the first place.

“Did you ask the then-prime minister [himself] to carry such humanitarian aid from Turkey? We had already sent the necessary aid there to Gaza by that time and we are providing aid [now]. We have sent aid to Palestine and are sending. But while we were doing this, we did everything [within the bounds of diplomacy], not for a show of strength. We will continue to do so. We did these things not with a flourish of trumpets but with decency and propriety, and we are continuing to do this,” Erdoğan said on June 29 at an iftar dinner organized for presidential palace personnel.

Fight the Real Enemy: Terrorism, Not Immigration

Thu, Jun 30, 2016

For this casual American observer, few of the arguments for Britain leaving the European Union seem to make sense. What is most disturbing about this dramatic and disruptive decision by the U.K. electorate, however, is how much of it is apparently rooted in anti-immigrant sentiment linked to recent terrorist atrocities in Paris and Brussels.

British authorities have already reported an alarming spike in anti-immigrant hate crimes since the “Brexit” referendum.
