"One of al-Qaeda’s most dangerous figures has been revealed as a double agent working for MI5, raising criticism from European governments, which repeatedly called for his arrest. Britain ignored warnings — which began before the September 11 attacks — from half a dozen friendly governments about Abu Qatada’s links with terrorist groups and refused to arrest him... A ruling by the Special Immigrations Appeals Commission revealed yesterday that there was evidence to show that Abu Qatada 'has been concerned in the instigation of acts of international terrorism'. A security source in Madrid said yesterday: 'Who knows how much violence and bloodshed could have been prevented if Britain had heeded the warnings about this man a long time ago.' ... With terrorism at the top of the agenda at the European Union summit today in Brussels, Tony Blair is bound to be asked about MI5’s history with Abu Qatada and other militant clerics who have used Britain as their base..... ... He disappeared from his family home in West London just before the [post 911 anti-terrorism] law came into force. Indignant French officials accused MI5 of helping the cleric to abscond.... Mr Justice Collins ruled that the cleric was 'at the centre in the UK of terrorist activities associated with al-Qaeda'.... Spanish investigators produced evidence that a militant they had in custody in Madrid — Abu Dahdah — had visited the cleric more than 25 times, bringing him money and new recruits."

HILLARY CLINTON SAYS “ISLAM IS PEACEFUL AND HILLARY CLINTON IS OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY

Days after the ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in San Bernardino, President Obama’s address to the nation concerning the threat of ISIS missed the mark. In fact, President Obama seemed at times to be more concerned with Americans ostracizing Muslim communities through “suspicion and hate,” than he was with protecting innocent American civilians from murder in the name of radical Islam.

It is high time for western political leaders to stop responding to terrorism by naming Islam as ‘the religion of peace’. It is time to have a hard conversation about Islam.

The West is in the throes of acute cognitive dissonance over Islam, whose brands are at war with each other. On the one hand we are told that Islam is the Religion of Peace. On the other hand we are confronted with an unending sequence of acts of terror committed in the name of the faith.

There is a depressing connection between the two brands: the louder one brand becomes, the more the volume is turned up on the other.

The slogan ‘Religion of Peace’ has been steadily promoted by western leaders in response to terrorism: George Bush Jr and Jacques Chirac after 9/11, Tony Blair after 7/7, David Cameron after drummer Lee Rigby was beheaded and after British tourists were slaughtered in Tunisia, and François Hollande after the Charlie Hebdo killings. After the beheading of 21 Copts on a Libyan beach Barak Obama called upon the world to “continue to lift up the voices of Muslim clerics and scholars who teach the true peaceful nature of Islam.”

One may well ask how ‘the religion of peace’ became a brand of Islam, for the phrase cannot be found in the Qur’an, nor in the teachings of Muhammad.

Islam was first called ‘the religion of peace’ as late as 1930, in the title of a book published in India by Ishtiaq Husain Qureshi. The phrase was slow to take off, but by the 1970s it was appearing more and more frequently in the writings of Muslims for western audiences.

What does “religion of peace” actually mean?

Words for ‘peace’ in European languages imply the absence of war, and freedom from disturbance. It is no coincidence that the German words Friede ‘peace’ and frei ‘free’ sound similar, because they come from the same root.

While there is a link in Arabic between salam, a word often translated ‘peace’, and Islam, the real connection is found in the idea of safety.

The word Islam is based upon a military metaphor. Derived from aslama ‘surrender’ its primary meaning is to make oneself safe (salama) through surrender. In its original meaning, a muslim was someone who surrendered in warfare.

Thus Islam did not stand for the absence of war, but for one of its intended outcomes: surrender leading to the ‘safety’ of captivity. It was Muhammad himself who said to his non-Muslim neighbors aslim taslam ‘surrender (i.e. convert to Islam) and you will be safe’….

Sheikh Ramadan Al-Buti of Syria was one of the most widely respected traditionalist Sunni scholars before he was killed in 2013 by a suicide bomber. The year before he had been listed as number 27 in the ‘The Muslim 500’, an annual inventory of the most influential Muslims in the world. According to Al-Buti, the claim that Islam is a peaceful religion was a ‘falsehood’ imposed upon Muslims by westerners to render Islam weak. He argued in The Jurisprudence of the Prophetic Biography that when non-Muslims fear Islamic jihad, their initial inclination is to accuse the religion of being violent. However they then change tack, and craftily feed to Muslims the idea that Islam is peaceful, in order to make it so. He laments the gullibility of ‘simple-minded Muslims’, who:

“… readily accept this ‘defense’ as valid and begin bringing forth one piece of evidence after another to demonstrate that Islam is, indeed, a peaceable, conciliatory religion which has no reason to interfere in others’ affairs. … The aim … is to erase the notion of jihad from the minds of all Muslims.”

There does seem to be something to Al-Buti’s theory, for it has invariably been after acts of violence done in the name of Islam that western leaders have seen fit to make theological pronouncements about Islam’s peacefulness. Who are they trying to convince?

In the long run this cannot be a fruitful strategy. It invites mockery, such as Palestinian cleric Abu Qatada’s riposte to George Bush’s declaration that ‘Islam is peace’. Abu Qatada asked: ‘Is he some kind of Islamic scholar?’

We do need to have a difficult conversation about Islam. This is only just beginning, and it will take a long time. The process will not be helped by the knee-jerk tendency of western leaders to pop up after every tragedy trying to have the last word on Islam. This strategy has failed, and it is time to go deeper.

Many innocents have died in the hands of these barbaric savages, for no justifiable/reasonable purpose!

The Islam ideology is 1400 years and its concept is very hard to define, because its tenets have been abrogated many times over, its history has shown this. The Islamic concept has been deliberately been founded in a convoluted manner; that no matter what has been written it will only lead, in the minds of its adherents to a final end…… to be the dominant “religion of peace”!

That final status that Muslim’s seek will only be achieved when the infidels (non-believers) convert to Islam or have been killed as the Quran mandates, which profess no compassionate LOVE like the God of the 10 Commandments nurtures to His creations!

See, where we are getting at? Muslims will blame anything and everything on the non muslims.

Al Buti argued in The Jurisprudence of the Prophetic Biography that when non-Muslims fear Islamic jihad, their initial inclination is to accuse the religion of being violent. However they then change tack, and craftily feed to Muslims the idea that Islam is peaceful, in order to make it so. He laments the gullibility of ‘simple-minded Muslims’, who:

"You can't say that Islam is a religion of peace," Anjem Choudary told CBN News. "Because Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission. So the Muslim is one who submits. There is a place for violence in Islam. There is a place for jihad in Islam."

Choudary told CBN News his group is a "*non-violent political and ideological movement*" that resides in the UK under "a covenant of security."

Yet he openly praises violent jihad.

"*The Koran is full of, you know, jihad is the most talked about duty in the Koran other than tawhid (belief)," he said. "*Nothing else is mentioned more than the topic of fighting."

Indeed, Muhammad organized 65 military campaigns in the last ten years of his life and personally led 27 of them. The more power that he attained, the smaller the excuse needed to go to battle, until finally he began attacking tribes merely because they were not part of his growing empire.

After Muhammad’s death, his most faithful followers and even his own family turned on each other almost immediately.

There were four Caliphs (leaders) in the first twenty-five years. Three of the four were murdered.
The third Caliph was murdered by the son of the first.
The fourth Caliph was murdered by the fifth, who left a 100-year dynasty that was ended in a gruesome, widespread bloodbath by descendents of Muhammad’s uncle.

Muhammad’s own daughter, Fatima, and his son-in-law, Ali, who both survived the pagan hardship during the Meccan years safe and sound, did not survive Islam after the death of Muhammad. Fatima died of stress from persecution within three months as per Sunnis, While she was murdered by Umar the 2nd Caliph as per Shias, and Ali was later assassinated.

Their son (Muhammad’s grandson) was killed in battle with the faction that became today’s Sunnis. His people became Shias. The relatives and personal friends of Muhammad were mixed into both warring groups, which then fractured further into hostile sub-divisions as Islam expanded.

Muhammad left his men with instructions to take the battle against the Christians, Persians, Jews and polytheists (which came to include millions of unfortunate Hindus). For the next four centuries, Muslim armies steamrolled over unsuspecting neighbors, plundering them of loot and slaves, and forcing the survivors to either convert or pay tribute at the point of a sword.

Companions of Muhammad lived to see Islam declare war on every major religion in the world in just the first few decades following his death - pressing the Jihad against Hindus, Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, and Buddhists.

By the time of the Crusades (when the Europeans began fighting back), Muslims had conquered two-thirds of the Christian world by sword, from Spain to Syria, and across North Africa. 

Millions of Christians were enslaved by Muslims, and tens of millions of Africans. The Arab slave trading routes would stay open for 1300 years, until pressure from Christian based countries forced Islamic nations to declare the practice illegal (in theory). To this day, the Muslim world has never apologized to the victims of Jihad and slavery.

There is not another religion in the world thatconsistently produces terrorism in the name of religion as does Islam. The most dangerous Muslims are nearly always those who interpret the Qur’an most transparently. They are the fundamentalists or purists of the faith, and believe in Muhammad’s mandate to spread Islamic rule by the sword, putting to death those who will not submit.

The holy texts of Islam are saturated with verses of violence and hatred toward those outside the faith.

The handful of earlier verses that speak of tolerance are overwhelmed by an avalanche of later ones that carry a much different message. While Old Testament verses of blood and guts are generally bound by historical context within the text itself, Quranic imperatives to violence usually appear open-ended and subject to personal interpretation.

In the Quran violence is first forbidden, then permitted, then mandatory. Paralleling the life of Muhammad in which he is first weak with fewer number of followers and he steadily gains strength in numbers, he becomes increasingly hostile and viciously violent.

A parallel seen even now, Where muslims are seen as docile with 1% population in the U.S., to asserting and demanding concessions in Europe, where they are around 5% in many places., to causing riots, terrorist acts and having personal Sharia Laws in countries like India, where they are around 14%.

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:


Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim

But when they near 100% as in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia etc, the same things happen as those happened with Muhammads family. The bloody sectarian conflicts take over.
To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.
There is no end to violence in Islam

By any objective measure, the "Religion of Peace" has been the harshest, bloodiest religion the world has ever known.

This is so fucked up

Emwazi is said to be the executioner in a number of ISIS videos, according to the U.S. government. The legitimacy of the beheading productions are disputed by experts.

According to The Daily Mail, Emwazi claimed the “MI5 knew ‘everything about me; where I lived, what I did, and the people I hanged around with’ and claimed the organization attempted to ‘turn’ him to work for them.”

Emwazi claimed to have been harassed and intimidated by security services in 2009 when he flew to Tanzania with friends on a safari. He was arrested in Dar es Salaam and sent back to Britain. In a stop over in Amsterdam, however, an MI5 agent allegedly accused him of trying to reach Somalia to join the terrorist group Al Shabaab.

According to the Daily Mail, Emwazi filed a harassment claim with the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

The following year, Emwazi was arrested when he returned to Britain from his native Kuwait. He was subsequently placed on a terror watch list.

Michael Adebolajo, one of the two killers of Fusilier (a British term for solider) Lee Rigby in London in 2013, also complained of harassment by the British secret service.

British Intelligence: Funding Terror Projects and Protecting Terror Suspects

British intelligence has played a key role in creating and fomenting terrorism.

As documented by Jean-Charles Brisard and Guillaume Dasquié, authors of The Forbidden Truth, in 1996 British intelligence paid al-Qaeda around $160,00 to fund an assassination plot against Libyan leader Mu’ammar al-Qadhafi. The British press was bannedfrom discussing the case.

A member of the group, Anas al-Liby, was givenpolitical asylum in Britain. He lived there until May 2000 despite being an important al-Qaeda figure who would later be implicated in the alleged al-Qaeda bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.

In the late 1990s British intelligence recruited, groomed and protected a number of terrorist figures, including Abu Qatada. The radical imam told MI5 agents he exercised “powerful, spiritual influence over the Algerian community in London,” said he would look after the interests of the British state, and “would not bite the hand that fed him.”

Qatada would later figure as a key figure in terror. “The authorities said that a number of people arrested in connection with terrorism had described Abu Qatada’s influence. Richard Reid, the would-be mid-Atlantic shoe bomber, and Zacarias Moussaoui, both jailed for involvement in terrorism, are said to have sought religious advice from him. The cleric’s sermons were found in a flat in the German city of Hamburg used by some of those involved in 9/11,” the BBC reported.

A friend of Qatada’s, Bisher al-Rawi, would later become a key operative for British intelligence. He acted as a go-between for Qatada and MI5, The Independent reported in March, 2006.

Another important figure on the “Londonistan” scene was Abu Hamza al-Masri, the imam presiding over the infamous Finesbury Park mosque, described as “a first port of call, a meeting place and a haven for terror suspects arriving and operating in the UK,” including Richard Reid and Zacarias Moussaoui. “Hamza, as the imam of the mosque and its central figure, wielded a powerful influence over those who passed through its doors,” The Independent reported.

Hamza began working for British intelligence and police in 1997. He informed on fellow Muslims and was granted favors by MI5, including the release of suspected terrorists. Hamza told his aides he was “beyond the reach of British law,” according to authorsSean O’Neill Daniel McGrory (The Suicide Factory). An admission “that Abu Hamza and his followers were using [Britain] to raise funds to finance terrorism overseas did not seem to cause a blip on the MI5 agent’s radar,” O’Neill and McGrory write.

In 1999 Hamza would be implicated in the kidnapping and murder of Western tourists in Yemen. He would tell police he was following the Koran and would be released. The police returned to Hamza audio tapes “packed with the usual messages of intolerance and hatred, and culminating in exhortations to kill the enemies of Islam.”

His Finsbury Park mosque sermons were attended by alleged 9/11 hijackers Mohammed Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer. Haroon Rashid Aswat, a top aide to Abu Hamza, would later be singled out as the mastermind of the London 7/7 bombings. Aswat is also suspected of working with British intelligence.

Another leading imam, Omar Bakri Mohammed, who collaborated with Osama bin Laden, also worked for British intelligence. “The British government knows who we are. MI5 has interrogated us many times. I think now we have something called public immunity,”Bakri admitted in 2001. Like many jihadists, the Syrian born imam was connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, a documented British (and later CIA) intelligence asset.

Abu Qatada demands to be relocated after a year in £400,000 home
Lawyers for the extremist cleric revealed he and his family, who live on state handouts, have asked to be relocated.
It is not known what reasons he has given but is likely to have demanded more space or complained about the constant media presence outside.
It can also be disclosed that his every movement will be watched from space as part of the massive surveillance operation that is costing the public £5 million a year.
The hate preacher has been fitted with a GPS satellite tag which means the police and security services will know where he is to within a few feet at any given time.
Qatada and his family were moved to a £400,000 house in Wembley, north London, in February this year after his initial release from prison as part of his ongoing fight against deportation.
He was later detained again but senior immigration judge Mr Justice Mitting released him for a second time on Tuesday.
Sitting at the Special Immigration Appeals Commission, he blocked Home Office attempts to return him to Jordan, where he faces terror charges, because he was not satisfied he was guaranteed a fair trial.
Lawyers for Theresa May, the Home Secretary, asked for him to be bailed to a Home Office address but the court refused and returned him to his Wembley home.
And Edward Fitzgerald QC, Qatada’s barrister, told Siac that he was now looking to be relocated again.
The family is reportedly paying £1,900 a month at the current property, funded through benefits.
Qatada was released from Long Lartin high security prison on Tuesday and was greeted with protesters when he arrived home.
Despite tight bail conditions, he is allowed to roam the streets for eight hours a day and will have to be monitored around the clock at a cost of £100,000 a week.
Around 60 officers from Scotland Yard, MI5 and a private security company are involved with marked police cars outside his home and undercover officers ready to follow him if he leaves his house.
Qatada is allowed outside between 8am and 4pm every day although he is not allowed to access the internet or meet certain individuals.
Visitors to his home must be approved by the Home Office and his phone line is monitored constantly.
David Cameron, the Prime Minister, said he was “completely fed up with the fact that this man is still at large in our country”.
David Anderson QC, the independent reviewer of terrorism laws, has warned it could be “years” before the case is concluded.
Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, said the fiasco showed human rights laws needed to be overhauled.
Qatada’s release is the latest setback in a battle that has now run for more than a decade.
The Home Office is to challenge the Siac decision in the Court of Appeal.
