Chairman’s Report – September 27th, 2013

American Islamic terrorists strike in Africa

Shoppers flee Muslim shooters at mall in Kenya

Shoppers flee Muslim shooters at mall in Kenya

Obama’s support of “good terrorists” breeds even more terror – The Western media is doing its best to suppress the fact that American citizens participated in the terror attack at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya. Of the attackers who killed at least 68 and wounded more than 175, most were from Western nations — not from Africa or the Middle East.

According to a Twitter post from the Islamic terror group al-Shabaab, which claims responsibility for the attack, three of the attackers are from the United States. Of those, three are from Minnesota and one from Missouri. According to al-Shabaab, one each of its fighters came from Canada, Finland, and the United Kingdom. Just two of those listed were from Somalia and one from Kenya. If this is accurate, the majority of the killers were from Western nations. (The Twitter feed for the Religious Freedom Coalition is @RFCNET.)

Two Canadians, including a diplomat, died in the attack as well as three people from the United Kingdom. At least five Americans were wounded, and the nephew of the Kenyan president along with his fiancée also died in the attack during the weekend of September 21st.

For several years I have reported on problems with Somali Muslims in the Minneapolis area. Mosques in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area are some of the most radical in the United States and terrorist organizations such al Shabaab and the Boko Haram have openly recruited from them. The Religious Freedom Coalition Internet site has reported on the “missing” young Somali men in Minnesota for several years. These are   young men who have travelled to Africa for jihad. Now they have shown themselves by attacking an upscale mall in Nairobi frequented by Westerners who work in the capital of Kenya.

The attack began outside as groups of people were asked if they were Muslims. If they said “yes” they were let go; if they said “no” they were shot dead.

This should be a very vivid warning to travelers, as virtually all of the aircraft cleaners and many ground support personnel in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport (MSP) are Somali Muslims. Most of the taxi drivers at the MSP airport are Somali, and controversies have arisen in recent years because they refuse to carry anyone who has alcohol or pork in their possession. There have been incidents reported of Jews wearing yarmulkes who have been refused service.

More than a year ago, I ran articles at the Religious Freedom Coalition Internet site about the terrorist training camps in the United States that had suddenly emptied out. The fighters from those camps are now doing jihad in Africa and the Middle East.

President Barack Obama’s support of the “good” Islamic terrorists in Syria has given the signal to American Muslims with terrorist leanings that killing in the name of Allah is deemed permissible, even by the government of the United States. Of course, there are no “good” Islamic terrorists — they all want the destruction of Western civilization and the coming of a Muslim Caliphate to rule the world. Our government is dangerously trying to define differences between terrorists, and supporting some while killing others in drone strikes. This sends a bizarre schizophrenic message to the world, and this confusion draws American Muslims into terrorists groups such as the Boko Harma and al-Shabaab.

In Pakistan, terror the media can’t ignore

Huge attack on Pakistan church comes during Kenya mall siege – One of my biggest complaints of the Western media is their failure to connect the dots when it comes to Islamic terror. Frequently a major newspaper will report Islamic terror attacks that happen at the same time as separate events and report on them on different pages of the same newspaper. The dreadful Islamic terror attack by the Taliban at the All Saints Church in the old quarter of the regional capital, Peshawar, Pakistan came while Islamic terrorists still held hostages at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, forcing the Western media to report on the two stories at once.

In the September 23rd edition of the Wall Street Journal, both attacks were on the front page. However, the author of the story ignorantly stated that attacks against Christians in Pakistan were new, saying, “However, they had until now left the Christian communities, even those living in the tribal areas, relatively unharmed.”  Is this a joke???

The assertion that the attack on the church in Pakistan marked something new is either pure ignorance or an outright fabrication by author Saeed Shaha.

Since 9-11 there have been dozens of churches attacked. Just a few days ago an entire Christian village was forced to flee because of a false accusation of blasphemy against a pastor. Numerous Christians rot in prisons without trial for blasphemy. Just recently I reported on how a Muslim landlord killed an entire Christian family in order to take the man’s wife.  I wrote to the author and the editor of the Wall Street Journal suggesting they at least once in a while read the Pakistan Christian Post. Officially 75 died in the double suicide bombing by devoted Muslims. What was not reported by any Western media is what happened to the nearly 200 of those who were injured when they arrived at the Lady Reading Hospital. It was reported that doctors there refused to treat the wounded Christians for “fear of reprisals” from the Taliban.

As of noon on Monday, more than 36 hours after the attack, President Obama still had not made a statement or condemned the attacks.

Self-proclaimed American jihadist released by Obama Justice Department

The smiling self proclaimed jihadist Eric Harroun from Phoenix, Arizona.

I have reported on Eric Harroun several times and even placed a link at the Religious Freedom Coalition Internet site to a YouTube video of him bragging about his activities in Syria. On September 19th the self-proclaimed jihadist fighter was sentenced to a few months of “time served” by a federal judge in Virginia and walked out of the courtroom a free man.

Court documents reveal that he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to transfer defense articles and services. The government has sealed the case, allowing no one to get further details.

Harroun was arrested in March when he returned to the United States and was charged with conspiring to use a rocket propelled grenade while fighting for the al-Nusra Front in Syria. He could have received 30 years to life under those charges, which were dropped.

At the time of his arrest Harroun was considered so dangerous by the government that he had been placed on a “no-fly” list. He was removed from the list to allow him to return to the United States where he was arrested.

According to the original FBI affidavit, Eric Harroun crossed into Syria in January and received training from the al-Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda affiliate. He was trained in using rocket propelled grenades (RPG) which he is pictured with above.

Why was he not prosecuted for aiding al-Qaeda?  He admitted violating the Neutrality Act which forbids any American (including John McCain) from assisting in the overthrow of an established government. There are plenty of still photos and videos of him on the Internet with al-Nusra fighters — yet he walked. Why?

CNN summed up the problem Obama’s Justice Department had with Eric Harroun this way: “The case appeared to present the United States with a thorny problem — Harroun allegedly was fighting against the Syrian government which the United States also opposes. But the United States considers the al-Nusra Front a terrorist group.”

Dozens, perhaps even hundreds, of young male Somalis from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and other parts of the United States have vanished over the past two years. Just recently American Omar Hammami, known in the terrorist organization of al-Shabaab as Abu Mansoor al-Amriki, was killed in a gun battle between factions of al-Qaeda in Somalia. A war is raging in Somalia and many young American Muslims with Somali ancestry have gone there to fight.

There are other Americans associated with al-Qaeda as well. Anwar al-Awlaki, the American imam who spoke at the Pentagon after 9-11, was killed in Yemen in a drone strike ordered by President Obama. By assisting Islamic terrorists in Syria and letting off Americans who participate in jihad lightly, President Barack Obama is giving a green light to radicalized American Muslims to join forces with radical groups in Africa and the Middle East.

One Islamic outrage too many

Child Bride story brings outrage On a normal day about 1,000 people visit the Religious Freedom Coalition Internet site. From September 20th to September 23rd, as many as 3,000 visitors per hour read the story of an 8-year-old girl who died on her wedding night.

Rawan, an eight-year-old girl in Yemen, died from being repeatedly raped by her 40-year-old husband. She bled to death on her “wedding night” after being sold by her parents into marriage. The man who raped his eight-year-old bride to death was not arrested, nor were any of her family members for selling her into what was essentially sex slavery.

Tragically, the barbaric practice of marrying children is part of Sharia law in Islam. Mohammed married six-year-old Aisha and consummated the marriage when she was only nine. He clearly approved of pedophile-style marriages, and the practice has continued to this day.

While some stories such as this catch fire for a few days, Rawan’s death isn’t unusual. In 2010, a 13-year-old 7th grader from the United States died after bleeding uncontrollably for five days after her wedding night. In 2010, a 12-year-old wife died in labor in Yemen, after struggling for three days to give birth.

Officially these kinds of marriages do not occur in the United States, at least not publicly. However, in the UK authorities tend to ignore child marriages and multiple marriages that are conducted by imams there, as long as they are not officially registered.

How is this for separation of church and state?

Public school students taken to mosque – Freshman high school students in Tennessee were taken on a field trip to the Islamic Center of Nashville and given Korans after a tour.

Students were also given a worksheet that described Islam as more tolerant of its conquered peoples than the United States was of its minorities. In the student workbook the author claimed that the “Prophet of Islam was prepared to live in peace with the followers of other monotheistic religions, especially Judaism and Christianity.” The author went on: “If we were to compare the attitude of the Muslim rulers towards the minorities living under their rule during the nineteenth century – with the attitude of the Europeans and the Americans towards their minorities, I dare to say that the record of the Muslims would be better.”

Outraged parent Mike Conner sent an email to the principal, asking why the students weren’t taken to a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue. He was told the school couldn’t afford to send the students to all of these religious institutions.

Each day several stories such as those in this Chairman’s Report are posted not only at, but also at two Facebook pages we manage, and all posts are also Twitted from @RFCNET.
