Teddy Bear Taqiyya

A few weeks three “British” schoolgirls made international headlines ago by traveling to Syria to join the Islamic State and wage jihad in the path of Allah.

One of the girls is named Amira Abase. Her father is Hussen Abase, although in some media accounts he is referred to as “Abase Hussen”, which is very confusing. In any case, after the news about his daughter broke, Mr. Abase or Mr. Hussen presented himself to the British media as a bewildered “moderate” Muslim who had no idea how his dear daughter had fallen in with a bad crowd and developed “extremist” views.

Below are excerpts from an account in The Guardian that was published on February 22:

The father of one of the London schoolgirls feared to be on her way to Syria has said her family “cannot stop crying” as he urged her not to fall into the clutches of Islamic State (Isis) militants.

As British counter-terrorism officers were accused of failing to pick up on signs that the teenagers may have been radicalised online, the father of Amira Abase, 15, said she had never discussed an interest in jihadism with him but “maybe with friends”.

Hussen Abase, 47, revealed that Amira had claimed she was going to a wedding on the day she went missing, but instead secretly met up with her Syria-bound friends.

In a tearful video message to his daughter, Abase said: “We are depressed, and it’s very stressful. The message we have for Amira is to get back home. We miss you. We cannot stop crying. Please think twice. Don’t go to Syria.”


Abase said Amira had been behaving “in a normal way” with “no sign to suspect her at all” before she disappeared.

“She said ‘Daddy, I’m in a hurry’,” he said. Later that morning, she texted her father, who assumed she was going to the wedding. “She said, ‘Dad, the place is a little bit far. I pray my midday prayer and I get back’. She didn’t come home,” he said. The family reported her missing at midnight on Tuesday.

Abase described his daughter’s actions as “completely nonsense” and said it had caused untold upset to her mother and younger brother and sister. He said his daughter had never spoken about an interest in jihad with him but “maybe with friends”.

“She doesn’t dare discuss something like this with us. She knows what the answer would be,” he said.

“If anyone doesn’t have hope, life would be miserable,” he said. “We don’t despair. We struggle. It’s stressful. We hope, of course.”

There’s no jihad in this family! Cross my heart and hope to die! Uh, no, wait, I mean… May Allah strike me dead if I fail to speak the truth!

Well, that was Hussen Abase in February 2015. It turns out that three years previously, in 2012, Mr. Abase-Hussen was somewhat more “radicalized” in his views. Is he perhaps a recovering jihadolic? He may even now on his way to a Mujahideen Anonymous meeting in the East London Mosque…

Vlad Tepes has compiled a “Then and Now” video of Hussen Abase. You’ve got to hand it to the grieving father; he certainly knows how to push all the lachrymose sentimentalist media buttons — look at the size of that teddy bear in his lap!

Here are excerpts from the most recent Daily Mail report on the tearful father of Amira:

His face twisted in fury, Abase Hussen punches his fist into the air and launches into an Islamic war cry.

‘Burn, burn USA,’ he yells from his prime spot at the front of one of the most notorious rallies in recent times [in 2012].

Once the crowd is whipped into a fever, an American flag is set on fire and held aloft by a fanatic. Video footage shows Mr Hussen desperately trying to hold the burning flag as the chanting behind him intensifies.

He manages to grab the flag briefly before being forced to drop it because of the power of the smoke and flames.

As the remainder of the flag burns on the ground, Mr Hussen chants ‘Allahu Akbar’.

He pushes the palm of his hand repeatedly toward the embers, rejoicing at the destruction of the stars and stripes.

Mr Hussen — the father of one of the three schoolgirls who fled Britain to join Islamic State — then turns his attention to a burning Israeli flag on the floor and begins to chant and gesture toward it.

He is one of a dozen fanatics standing behind a banner which proclaims: ‘The followers of Mohammed will conquer America.’ Behind him, hundreds of fanatics repeatedly chant incendiary slogans while holding menacing black jihadi flags.

Among the rabble-rousers was notorious hate preacher Anjem Choudary, who has led a number of Islamist groups that were subsequently banned.

Alongside him stood Michael Adebowale, one of the two Muslim converts who murdered and almost beheaded Fusilier Lee Rigby in the name of Allah eight months later.

Abu Izzadeen, infamous for heckling former Home Secretary John Reid in 2006, also led some of the chanting.

But last month Mr Hussen gave evidence to Parliament refusing to accept any responsibility for the three schoolgirls’ actions, instead seeking to blame the police, teachers, Turkish officials and others.

In an extraordinary exchange at the home affairs select committee, Mr Hussen, who was with the families of the other two girls, denied even knowing what Islamic radicalisation was.


He said: ‘I strongly disagree with the letter being given to 15-year-old girls. The word “police” by itself and “terrorism” or “counter-terrorism”, as global issues — it is a heavy burden for a 15-year-old to deal with that. We also feel that we are neglected as parents.

What the MPs were not told was that Mr Hussen was caught on camera in one of a wave of demonstrations that took place across the world in September 2012.

Thousands had taken to the streets to protest against an obscure film called Innocence of Muslims, criticised for ridiculing Islam.


Last night members of the Commons committee expressed their shock and astonishment over Mr Hussen’s activities.

Labour MP Ian Austin said: ‘It is extraordinary that this man blamed the police, the Government, the school, the Turkish government and everyone else for his daughter’s decision to go to Syria but failed to mention his own involvement in an appalling Islamist rally. Perhaps the committee should invite Mr Hussen back so he can explain what he was doing.’

I can’t wait to hear his explanation. Maybe he’ll bring his teddy bear with him when he testifies.

  1. Typical lying, devious Islamic scum; and still liberals over the entire western world defend these good-for-nothing leeches who have no intention of integrating and have loyalty only for the ummah.

    What a wonderful world it would be without liberals.

    • Can we please drop the word “liberals” in these comments? There are Classic Liberals and there are Leftists (often also referred to as Progressives), and they are *not* the same.

      As I consider myself one and not the other, thank G-d.

      • I agree with you. I’m very distressed by the extent to which the Orwellian Newspeak redefinition of the term “liberal” has been successful. Even the opponents of the left use the false terminology.

        Neo-Marxism (modern leftism) will not lead to any sort of utopia of liberty where everyone is free from being required to work or take responsibility for anything. This claim is the source of the use of the word “liberal” to refer to neo-Marxism, but the claim is just as false as it was under Marxism-Leninism.

    • Okay, Peter, I see where C in CA is coming from. She has requested – reasonably, I think – that the word “liberal” be reserved for liberals in the classic meaning of that world. Daniel Moynihan was one, and Scoop Jackson. They’re all dead now but maybe there will be a badly-needed Reformation on the Left and some will emerge so we may need to reserve that word for when the real true LLiberals come down the road. In the meantime, let’s agree: for the current lot in power it’s “Progressive” or “Leftist”.

      For some reason I’m reminded of Robert Hunter’s lyrics on “One Thing to Try”


      • I hate to be picky but “progressive” is also an Orwellian Newspeak term as it implies that neo-Marxism necessarily represents some sort of progress when all it really represents is regression to the times and places of Marxism-Leninism and Marxism-Maoism.

        Did you know that the Korean war prisoners in Chinese reeducation camps who at least made a show of embracing communist beliefs were referred to in the camps as “progressives”? As in “All the progressives will now get [some reward]. Everyone else will have to do without.”

        I wonder how many people would want to call themselves “progressive” if they were aware of this?

        • Well, you’ve just made the case for the use of “Progressive”, haven’t you? I think it also has some German roots, too. Let’s ask the Baron to dust off his A-Level history exams and tell us how it went in England.

          • I would bet that it was popularly introduced in the US by Maoist groups like the SDS. A Maoist hellhole is the sort of “progress” that it has historically referred to.

      • Got it! Sorry Cynthia, will you please accept my humble apologies? And since you offer a choice Lady D., I’ll go with ‘leftist’.

        • the term “progressive” was around in the days of Woodrow Wilson and Teddy R., and tended to the theory that ordinary people were not capable of deciding what was in their own best interests. This had to be left in the hands of trained experts in a bureaucratic state. As W.W. put it, “the U.S. Constitution was based on the Newtonian paradigm, and we are now it the time of Darwin.” (The quote is not exact, but I believe it is faithful to the gist.) These old style progressives believed in things like applied eugenics, so I think the modern leftist version can carry the progressive flag with ease. Hitler and Stalin were firm evolutionists, after all.

  2. Anyone with half a brain knew that something like this was going to come out. Kids this age don’t just run off to IS unless they’ve gotten some sort of pro-Islamist messages from their parents.

    The thing is that these messages don’t necessarily have to be that blatant and obvious. Parents who just tell their kids that “living under Allah’s sharia law would be like paradise” even without supporting any particular country or group will indoctrinate their kids with the belief needed to support the idea of them running off to wage jihad in support of the sharia “paradise”.

    Even if the parents of the other kids weren’t at any Muslim political rallies, we will probably find that the other parents gave their kids some idea like “living under Allah’s sharia law would be like paradise”.

    Unfortunately we’re dealing with a culture that is more concerned with shame than guilt, and this supports the belief that one should lie and blame others to avoid shame. This is because ideas like “redemption” after admitting one’s guilt are not commonly accepted enough to seem possible.

    • Good point re the shame society. Most tribal cultures are. Until recently, Ireland was rife with shame. It has since moved into the 21st century, but in the process threw out the baby with the bath water.

      The Danish psychologist – whose name I just blocked – writes about what the kids are up against.

      • I think you’re referring to this guy: http://europenews.dk/en/node/21789

        I think he basically knows what he’s talking about, but his experience is mostly with actual convicted criminals. So that may result in a tendency to exagerate as his studied subjects probably have exaggerated characteristics.

        If your search for his name you’ll find a bunch of leftist ranting about how he’s some sort of hitter who’s going to cause a holocaust.

        That’s what the stupidity has come to: Anyone who suggests that a culture might have problems and not “every culture is equally valid” is immediately accused of implying the creation of concentration camps.

  3. Teddy Bear Taqiyya

    Ah Teddy Bear innocence. Childlike posturing. They know how to manipulate the western naive mind. Since the Pirate’s plans of war and invasion, and over 1435 years we still have not learnt a lesson. Now we invited them here and are ever thorning our sides, still we deny that. Why they are so sly, crafty and cunning, and we are so daft and dumb.
    We have values but we never spell them out because we don’t know what they are.
    Our values are do everything in your power to islamize the west and enslave yourself.

    Isn’t that worth dying for. Ah ye Glubb Pasha.

  4. Another [redacted]-> female of questionable morals joins the Horizontal Jihad.

    • Horizontal Jihad. That’s a good term for it. I don’t think this is very well known because people usually assume that in Islam women who do this must necessarily be stoned to death, but they haven’t heard of the “traveler’s marriage”:


      Wonder how this Islamist jihadi supporting dad likes the idea of his daughter “supporting” at least 10s (maybe even 100?) of these mujahideen in such a manner?

      How do you like “fighting in the way of Allah” now, dad?

  5. I can’t wait for Abase Hussen to sue the British government for failing to prevent his daughter from joining the ISIS-Land Jihadists. He’ll get legal aid and sympathetic media coverage. The latter will put his 2012 antics down to a passionate commitment to the plight of the Palestinians for which the USA is naturally responsible.

  6. Its not been commented on that the teddy bear is wearing a Chelsea FC shirt. Recently Chelsea were implicated when there was racist chants by fans on a tube but when having fans with jihadist tendencies they are not asked to make a comment. Racist chants by whites is clearly worse than enrichers joining slaving, raping and murdering groups like IS.

  7. 16 hours ago from Tommy Robinson: http://t.co/49pxGJINEZ:
    English newspaper letter:

    Give Us Our Own Space (Headline bold print)
    If I came across as a person
    extreme in my views I do apologise but
    I think I think it is about time we as
    Muslims living in the United Kingdom should be
    give our own areas where we can live
    and support ourselves.
    These areas should not be governed
    by local authority they should be
    controlled by local Muslim people.
    This should include policing and
    justice systems and the strict rule of
    Islam should prevail in these areas.
    I think we should also be able to
    educate our young people in things
    important to our community and not
    about kings and queens long since
    dead and the industrial revolution etc
    this has no relevance to British children
    let alone children from other faiths.
    I feel all this would be a good thing
    and help Muslim people a great deal.

    • Perhaps you could share which English newspaper this fictitious letter was supposedly published in?

    • Which “English newspaper” did this fictitious letter supposedly appear in? It’s funny that if anyone Googles “Jhavinda Kazim”, the only page that comes up is this [redacted]-> stuff.

      • Seemingly t was in the Swindon Evening Advertiser. The trouble is that one twit writes something daft and loads of people looking for things to beat muslims with get worked up into a frenzy about it. People disregard the fact there there has been jewish areas subject to jewish ‘law’ for years without anyone batting an eyelid. Years ago I heard the president of an outlaw motorcycle club saying that the state should provide them with a club house and a small area that would be subject to their own rules. *rolls eyes*

        • The motive for that post was simply to use the title. We have a deep animus toward the easy sentimentalism offered by the use of teddy bears. I don’t hate candles yet, but I find the bouquets of flowers still wrapped in plastic and tossed on some ersatz “memorial” a ruin of something that had the potential for beauty…

          Whether it be Muslims killing off apostates & infidels or the bloody aftermath of some mentally off-kilter killer running amok in a “gun-free zone”, the shallow display of teddy bears, et al, annoys me. Thus, “Teddy Bear Taqiyyah” seemed a good opportunity for slaying several easy answers in one go.

          So tell us about the Jewish car-be-ques and honor killings and policing the streets for evidence of disobeying the law or the stoning of emergency vehicles and police cars. I look forward to whatever you care to share…

  8. Please excuse my vitriolic snark, but the more [fecund people of the Islamic persuasion who get killed] on the battlefields of ISIS the better, in my opinion.

  9. There was an audio recording a few weeks ago featuring the Lancashire Chemistry teacher who tried to leave for Syria. He was jailed after his parents gave the Police the recording of their argument. Funny thing is that in the recording he tells his father something like “you are objecting now but you keep changing your mind”. Mmmm. Wonder what that was all about? The Police don’t seem to have picked up on it. No matter, the British taxpayer is now keeping the son in jail at $60k a year and also now having to provide benefits for his wife and two children so at least the economic jihad has worked.

  10. Baron-

    Thank you for posting this. I believe that it is very important to examine the motives and beliefs of the parents whose children decide to journey to Syria to take up the extremist cause.

    It beggars belief that all of these parents are moderates, completely unaware of how their children are being radicalized.

    It is also another sad example of the hypocrisy inherent in these people. Jihad and killing the infidel is the best thing ever…until it’s your own blood volunteering to throw its existence away.

  11. IMHO, the dad is really angry because he had already taken the down payment from relative of his or even his wife’s family for the girl’s hand in marriage/slavery .
    Now the dud has to pay it back…aw shucks!
    So if he can get a sturdy sob story going strong in the Brit IDIOT MEDIA, MAYBE , just maybe some stupid/half-twit white Brits will donate money to relive his suffering at the grievous loss of his innocent daughter to those slavers( his former pals) in ISIS.

  12. I do not know. Tommy Robinson’s signature gave it some credibility. I would like to know though.

    • His signature gives credibility? Are you serious? Tommy and his comrades have created or circulated a succession of hoax emails, facebook stories etc about Muslims. Still the unanswered question…..which paper did this letter appear in?
