Islam: Western Leaders Are Well Deceived

Islam: Western Leaders Are Well Deceived

by Michael Copeland

Islam has a sinister feature that is insufficiently known in the West: authorised deception. This has an Arabic name, taqiyya, and features as “Permissible Lying” in the Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, r8. The Muslim Brotherhood’s secret Explanatory Memorandum, captured in a police raid, instructs on “Using deception to mask intended goals”. “Taqiyya permeates almost all the activities and dealings of Muslims with non-Muslim societies…”, explains Sam Solomon, former professor of Sharia law. After all, one of Allah’s ninety-nine names is “The Greatest of Deceivers”.

“If you want to know about Islam”, writes Paul Wilkinson, “Do not talk to Muslims”. You are likely to be given a misleading account. British Prime Ministers Blair and Cameron were both advised by the smooth-talking serial liar Tariq Ramadan. He is the likely source of their bold confident statements on Islam, which, though made with a great air of authority, are hopelessly erroneous. The West’s politicians, of course, as Pat Condell observes, are all Islamic scholars: “They are, aren’t they?”

“After every atrocity committed in the name of Islam,” said Geert Wilders, “Barack Obama, David Cameron, Angela Merkel and my own Prime Minister [Rutte] rush to the television cameras to declare that these acts have nothing to do with Islam.

“How stupid do they think we are?”

Jamie Glazov, in Jihadist Psychopath, writes, “Some kind of “pressure” is in the air — a pressure that ensures that after every jihadist attack, we call the attack everything but what it actually is. We are to ascribe many different motives to the perpetrators, except the very motives that they themselves have candidly identified.”

A commenter, CogitoErgoSum, observes, “Seems to me that… all of the leaders in the West are practicing wishful thinking. These people are hoping that if they repeat something often enough it will become accepted by the masses.”

David Wood complains, “The only response… is to say, over and over again, that real Islam promotes peace and tolerance… Hence, what British leaders are doing is actually worse than doing nothing. They are actively protecting and promoting the ideology that calls for the violence.”

The Litany of Denial

Western politicians, and judges too, show how well deceived they are when they make authoritative pronouncements denying any link between Islamic State and Islam, likewise when they confidently repeat that terrorists have distorted Islam. Both are successful products of taqiyya deception.

“…there is… nothing whatsoever about ISIL that is related to Islam.” — John Kerry, US Secretary of State, 12 Oct 2014

“I refuse to call them the Islamic State, because they are neither Islamic or a state.” — Hillary Clinton

“They have nothing to do with the great religion of Islam” — David Cameron

The Food Sucks! Room Service is Slow!

The Canary Islands continue to be a major transshipment point for African migrants trying to make their way to Europe. When they don’t get transported quickly enough, or when the accommodations do not meet up to their expectations, the culture-enrichers tend to get a little testy.

From the star hotel to the migrant camp — Tenerife: Violent protests over the poor quality of the food

The Canary Islands are increasingly developing into an escape route for illegal migrants from Africa and are recording dramatic arrival figures. The mood in Tenerife is accordingly heated, not only among the islanders, but also among the illegal migrants, as the transfer to the mainland and the onward journey to the destination country did not take place as planned and they are now stuck in the warehouse.

But the frustration does not only affect being stuck on the island: After arrival, thousands of illegals were accommodated in hotels, some of them 4-star hotels, and now many adventurers have had to leave the paradisiacal accommodations and move to reception camps. Not only are the days of well-equipped apartments and hotel rooms over, apparently also those of the buffets, because the food in the migrant camp is of poor quality and triggers conflicts in the dining room…

Brutal confrontation last Saturday afternoon between a group of immigrants, who were temporarily housed in hotels in Maspalomas and Mogán, in the Las Raíces detention center, and the security guards at the center, who had to seek help from the local and national police afterwards the tension inside had increased due to protests from inmates about the shortage and poor quality of the food. The police arrested seven people in the clashes.

The protests turned violent, and the NGO Accem, which manages the facilities, had to alert the authorities to send reinforcements to control the situation after a confrontation broke out between migrants and the centre’s security guards.

The coexistence in Las Raíces between the different groups of migrants becomes more and more complicated as the weeks go by, as the different nationalities mix in the center with the people who gradually arrive.

Jihadis Taking British and American Kafirs for Profit

There has recently been a lot of talk on both sides of the Atlantic about the payment of reparations for slavery. The following essay by Michael Copeland examines the history of slave-taking by Muslims of white Europeans and Americans.

Jihadis Taking British and American Kafirs for Profit

by Michael Copeland

“Muslims have a long shared history with Britain,” says an imam in a 2017 video produced by — yes, really — Lincolnshire Police. He shows Arabic coins and traded objects to prove it. The video is in-your-face propaganda for Islam, courtesy of the taxpayer. Michael Blackburn is critical:

BRITAIN’S POLICE FORCES seem to have agreed amongst themselves that their real purpose is not deterring crime and catching criminals but pulling increasingly embarrassing stunts in public to signal their political virtue…

Conflating the presence of a few traders and traded objects with the idea of a profound interconnectedness of cultures is ridiculous.

The criticism is valid. In a rather different way, though, Islam has had a long history with Britain, not so much “shared” as “inflicted”. This was in jihadi raids on the coast that took British kafirs for profit.

Islamic Raids for Kafir Captives

The story of Islamic raids on Britain’s coast is one of repeated trauma, pain, and suffering. Almost forgotten today, it is the shocking roll call of unprovoked attacks on Britain’s defenceless coastal villages and fishermen at sea. These forays were made by armed sea-borne jihadis to abduct British working men and women for profit. The raids continued for years.

The taking of captives in Islam is in direct fulfilment of the Koran’s instructions, all of which form part of Islamic law. Mohammedans are “the best of peoples raised up for mankind” (3:110). Kafirs are “the worst of creatures” (98:6): they are “ever to you a clear enemy” (4:101), who have to be fought against and subjugated (9:5, 8:39). Their territory is Dar al Harb, the Realm of War, where jihad, “warfare against non-Muslims”, is “a communal obligation” (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o9.0, o9.1). Kafirs are legally available to be taken by force in jihad.

The coastal predators of Britain were mujahidin from the Barbary States of North Africa and from Turkey, doing what their ideology commands — abducting kafirs because they are kafirs:

“Seize them, confine them”,

orders Koran 9:5. As Robert Spencer points out, “The primary market for slaves among Muslims was for non-Muslims, as enslaving fellow Muslims was considered a violation of the Qur’an’s requirement to be “merciful to one another” (48:29). That same Koranic verse, however, also commands being “ruthless to the kafir”. Slave-taking is legitimised to this day by Islam’s hostile rules. The jihad doctrine is, as Al Azhar explains, “a permanent war institution” against all kafirs.


Captives make lucrative spoils. They can be sold for labour, the women as concubines, and can bring in ransom money, another action authorised by Islamic law, in Koran 47:4:

Culture-Enriching Gang Rape in the Canary Islands

The rambunctious “youths” of Gran Canaria are at it again with their culture-enriching shenanigans in their new home.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Gran Canaria: Gang rape of a 36-year-old woman — four North Africans arrested

In the town of Puerto Rico on Gran Canaria, part of the municipality of Mogán, the handcuffs clicked on four migrants yesterday. The men of Maghrebian origin are accused of raping a 36-year-old woman in a local park on Friday.

As reported by La Provincia, the victim is an Irish national who has lived with her family in the community for years. After the incident, the woman first went to a health center and filed a complaint with the doctor’s report on Sunday.

Thanks to a good personal description, all four men who recently came illegally on a boat to Gran Canaria were arrested yesterday on Monday. They previously lived in tourist facilities in the municipalities of San Bartolomé de Tirajana and Mogán but were expelled from there. One of them was no stranger to the officials. He has already had several relevant criminal records.

Lockdowns Are Halal

Ashraf Ramelah sends this report on the response of Islamic law to COVID-19 restrictions.

Islamic Shariah embraces Covid-19 controls: Compliance guarantees paradise

By Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

More than a year ago, the world began its battle with an invisible enemy — the novel Covid-19 virus. The fight resulted in a crisis in health care, the economy, the family and much more. While controversy over its magnitude and even its existence rages on and exploitation of the numbers continues, money is made and societies are engineered. In the Arab-Muslim part of the world, Islam further capitalizes on the authoritarian controls of the current pandemic event in place to handle the virus spread and seems to relish the expansion of top-down oppression in the Western world.

For the Egyptian Fatwa House, the Shariah legal body, affirmation of the appropriate enforcement of government mask mandates, social distancing and lockdowns comes with a further control mechanism — the edict — created by the Shariah council to be the final piece of compliance. Adding the spiritual realm to the medical environment, the following edict was issued late last year (Nov 24, 2020). It will remain in effect indefinitely:

“Wearing a mask and following the decisions of the competent authorities at the time of epidemics is a legitimate duty; In order to protect souls and ward off the negative consequences of not adhering to them.” (emphasis added).

With this edict, social controls are now converted to religion with a moral impact upon the soul. Contradicting Covid-19 orders has dire eternal consequences. Coming as a faith directive, “protect souls” is literal, and “ward off the negative consequences” means avoiding eternal damnation. An irrefutable religious law, the current edict commands obedience to secular, government mandates (legal or illegal) with a reward in heaven when followed and, more troubling, an afterlife penalty when not.

Turning the virus pandemic into a matter of the soul would seem to be the logical reason for the Islamic religious institute to issue such a statement, although the language in the continued quote reveals a more material, ideological interest.

Religious authorities are attaching the well-being of the public to arbitrary, mandated rules that control human interaction and function as the Shariah. Controlling the will of an individual in the process of seeking to curtail the spread of a virus is real power. Controls on human behavior are both relatable and significant for the Fatwa House religious authorities who are in charge of creating and issuing edicts.

The Fatwa House spokesperson continues with the edict:

Egyptian Court Favors Islamists: Al Sisi’s Statement to Macron Justifies Verdict

Below is the latest report by Ashraf Ramelah on the plight of Egyptian Copts.

Egyptian court favors Islamists: Al Sisi’s statement to Macron justifies verdict

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

Nearly five years ago now, I wrote about a courageous Coptic Christian woman and a brave Coptic Bishop who stood with her and her son in the “Bedouin arbitration” court after she fell victim to a heinous crime.

As justice is never served through the “Bedouin” process of arbitration, shortly thereafter the woman and her son brought a civil lawsuit against the perpetrators in the state court. This past December 2020, her case was lost in favor of Islamists. The religious deep state found the offenders innocent, and the court set them free.

The handing down of the acquittal judgment was the final act in the prolonged Al Karm village drama and eradicated any hope of healing sectarian differences among Egyptians. The verdict showed the decadence and indecency inhabiting Egyptian society. In conjunction with an unrelated statement made by Egypt’s president earlier the same month, this case revealed Egypt’s ugly truth.

It began with collective punishment and expiation in the streets

Al Karm is a small, miserable village in the Al Minya Governorate, which is one of the poorest governorates in Egypt. In Al Karm village, as in other parts of the country, Muslims and Christians live as neighbors. The common denominator of its villagers is simplicity of life permeated with poverty and ignorance. Such conditions aid in the diffusion of Salafi fundamentalists and Muslim Brotherhood influencers that are able to control behavior and handle religious matters.

In July 2016, a rumor started everything. It circulated that a relationship existed between a Christian man and Muslim woman — unacceptable to the Muslim community. Seeking reparations, a religious mob struck back.

After the targeted man was seized by the radicals and arrested by the police, his mother, a woman in her 70s, was stripped naked, dragged from her home and paraded through the village streets. As the mother of a Coptic man who had been convicted in the court of public opinion for a religious crime, she paid a dear price.

During this humiliating and brutal exercise the mob screamed “Allahu Akhbar,” signaling great satisfaction as if winning an Islamic invasion (Gazwa). State authorities and Al Azhar Sunni Institute both turned a blind eye. There were no statements of condemnation coming from either direction.

“Peace and tolerance” in the international media

Despite the benign image of Islam portrayed by Al Azhar propaganda around the world, local mosques in Egypt steadfastly continue to spew “hate speech” embedded in prayers against Christians and Jews through open-air mics blasting the streets during weekly Friday services.

December court ruling and Al Sisi’s morality lesson to France that same month

During their press conference in France on Dec 6, 2020, the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi offered a morality lesson to President Emmanuel Macron when a journalist asked each of them for his vision concerning religion and social issues. Macron responded:

“We consider the human value to be the most important of all … Any person has the right to choose the religion he wants to believe in … The religious issue should not be related to the political issue.”

Al Sisi countered Macron by stating that:

The Facebook Spring in Egypt

Ashraf Ramelah sends a new report on the persecution of Copts and the suppression of free speech in Egypt.

Social media used to incite sectarian strife against Coptic Christians in Egypt

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

The most recent escalation of violence against Egyptian Copts living in Egypt occurred last month (November 2020) and was sparked by Facebook posts prompting Muslim radicals to retaliate for religious comments. After reading Christian “insults” Muslim goons set out to attack Coptic villages.

Christian Copts clarifying points on social media have been victims of sectarian hunts and ambushes by ruffians looking for a trigger to pull. Counterfeit pages that scammers produce bait Christians into commenting and then charge them with insulting Islam.

Copts are often tricked into responses by Islamists who have befriended them with hidden identities — sometimes showing a Christian cross to trick the page owner. Islamists harass and instigate in a scheme to entrap. Those are only the thugs at work. Additionally, the state’s “internet police” spy on Christian Facebook pages to target anti-Islam sentiments.

In other cases, Islamic hackers steal the page owner’s identity and make incendiary statements to frame a Facebook page owner and then track the Christian victim to his home. One such incident led to the village of Al Barsha in part of Al Minya Governorate (300 km south of Cairo).

It did not matter to Islam’s vigilantes that official sources confirmed the hacking of the Al Barsha villager’s Facebook account. Nor did it matter that the Al Barsha Christian did not make the remarks. Islamists set out to harm this Coptic family and displace them from their home just the same.

Molotov cocktails were thrown, the church was targeted as well, and the security police came in to prevent further damage.

Bedouin courts handle tech platform “offenses”

Conflicts instigated and executed by Muslim fundamentalists end up in the customary reconciliation sessions known as Bedouin courts. The Christian is always forced to plead guilty when innocent and pay dearly by handing over his home, farm or business to the criminals. The mandatory “peace” agreement of these arbitration sessions always sets the Islamic criminal free and punishes the innocent Christian family. This is precisely the purpose of the arbitration court.

Egypt’s Interior Ministry blames hostile countries; acknowledges Copts as targets

Last year the Egyptian Interior Ministry warned that thousands of Egyptian Facebook accounts were fakes. It added that “great numbers of these fake pages are outside the country and sponsored, funded and managed by countries that are hostile to Egypt.” The Interior Minister’s office went on to say that “such pages are used to spread rumors aiming to generate unrest by Muslim Brotherhood terrorist groups inciting acts of sabotage and violence and spreading chaos in the country, and especially against Copts.”

According to these statements, the stalking and scamming is generated by outside enemies and followed through by inside terror elements. All of it is religious warfare. Meanwhile, what are religious leaders of Al Azhar Institute saying or doing? Islamic censorship and terrorizing due to religious discrimination on social media platforms will not stop unless leaders show the way. The esteemed center of Sunni Islamic scholarship alone holds the power of interpretation of Quranic teachings. Supremacy teachings unfortunately do not support or aid followers to achieve peace and harmony with fellow citizens.

A Week of Cultural Enrichment in Europe

The incidents described in the news stories below did not necessarily occur during the past week, but the translations about them all landed in my inbox during that period.

First, from Germany, yet another travesty perpetrated by a (failed) “asylum seeker”. Hellequin GB, who translated the article, refers to the incident as “another sacrifice on the altar of Political Correctness in Germany”.

The story from Politically Incorrect:

SPD Lord Mayor Mädge downplays the act

Lüneburg: 19-year-old brutally murdered by “refugee”

by Manfred W. Black

19-year-old Jana D. was found stabbed to death in her car in Lüneburg four days ago. “The officials already have a suspect” (Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung). For days, media such as the HAZ, the Lüneburger Landeszeitung (LZ), the Hamburger Abendblatt and the NDR have hardly published any details about the perpetrator. Although the police and the media seem to know that the assailant is a rejected asylum seeker. Scandalous: The mayor of Lüneburg belittles the cruel act.

The father discovers the body of his own daughter

It said in the LZ that the alleged murder weapon was found near the crime scene, as the suspect is a “friend” of Jana D. Other media write that the murderer is the “friend” of the victim. The LZ reported that the 19-year-old’s father discovered the body of his own daughter in the early morning, around 3am. In a parking lot in the Lüneburg district of Schützenplatz — in a car used by the daughter. According to the police, the victim had “several injuries” that allegedly led to death. The father was looking for his daughter; previously he had waited in vain for her at home.

According to media reports, the evening before the crime, the victim worked in a Lüneburg restaurant that offers take-away sales.

First, the Bild newspaper puts the facts on the table

On January 20, the Bild-Zeitung did not provide any more detailed information about the knife. It only said: “The public prosecutor’s office did not want to provide further information on the (professional) background of the accused for reasons of privacy protection.”

On January 21, during the day , the Bild — as the only media outlet — published details on the perpetrator. The daily reported that last month Jana D. and her later murderer named “Fares A.” celebrated Christmas together. Bild even presented a — pixelated — photo in which the unequal couple is kissing.

It was also stated that the perpetrator, who apparently lives with his parents, is an asylum seeker whose application for asylum was rejected long before the offense, and who should have been deported long ago. The knife assailant was therefore — like millions of other “immigrants” whose asylum applications were officially denied — simply “tolerated” here. Certainly with all the usual social benefits around the clock. This widespread wrong decision by the responsible authorities has now cost this young woman her life.

Bild bows down — the PC-Mayor of Lüneburg trivializes the crime

In later versions of the Bild report, however, all information on the “refugee” status of the knifeman has been deleted. Apparently the editor in charge has been recalled. If at all possible, nothing should leak to the public about unpleasant facts about Angela Merkel’s “refugee” policy.

The Bild newspaper is apparently also supposed to bow to the mendacious Political Correctness (PC).

The Lord Mayor of Lüneburg, Ulrich Mädge (SPD), reacted scandalously to the terrible act. According to the Heilbronner Zeitung, he played down the knife murder with words that must sound like sheer mockery to the parents of the victim: “We all know that wherever people live together, the worst things can always happen, including in the neighborhood — but knowledge is one thing. When it actually happens, you can hardly believe it. “

How would the media have reported on a murdered Muslim woman?

If the victim had been a Muslim and the murderer “of German origin”, all newspapers in Germany would certainly have published all available social data on the victim and the killer. But when it comes to a violent criminal “refugee”, there is suddenly a booming silence in the forest of leaves when it comes to informing the population with at least an approximation of adequacy about the background of the respective crime.

Such comprehensive, manipulative reporting takes place every day in this country, although there is supposedly “freedom of the press” in Germany.

From Sweden, yet another murder by a culture-enricher who had had an earlier sentence reduced. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Samhällsnytt:

Jumping the Fence Into Melilla, Yet Again

Yet another batch of illegal migrants attempted to get across the fence into Melilla, the Spanish enclave on the coast of North Africa.

Those who get through gain comfortable accommodations, food, clothing, and spending money. Under law, their applications for asylum must be considered, and will be formally processed by the authorities. Those who are denied asylum will in all likelihood never be deported, and will have the run of the EU.

There’s no downside to this for the culture-enrichers, except for the possibility of falling off the wall and breaking their necks when they attempt to enter Melilla.

I Am Not an Apostate From Islam, I Am a Free French Citizen!

Below is an excellent rant by an ex-Muslim in France, who is identified only as Samia. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Résistance Républicaine:

I am not an apostate from Islam, I am a free French citizen!

by Samia
December 13, 2020

[Photo caption: The spoofs are out! Their indignation is variable geometry. We never see them denounce the serious attacks on the freedom of those who disbelieve in Islam and live in a country decreed Islamic. Curiously, never!]

What happens in Muslim countries for all those who don’t believe in Islam? Atheists, agnostics, Christians…What happens? Surely not what happens to Muslims in France!

While in our country, where freedom of religion is consecrated, where each can exercise his religion without any fear, whatever the professional liars say, apostates from Islam, infidels, are, in Muslim lands, mistreated, persecuted, hunted like animals, every day, in deafening silence, deafening! Who speaks of it? Nobody!

On the other hand, with each day that passes, we are bombarded, we are hit with the poor Muslim victims, the good joke of Islamophobia. Yes, a joke, a farce, a complete deception. France has been totally transformed, to my chagrin, in contact with followers of Mohammed. Endless mosques, halal butchers, streets infested by veils, all kinds of beards, and so on. Oh yes, and not to forget all the incessant demands for accommodations, which are increasingly satisfied. We want this, and we want that, and then this, and then that. It never stops! And incidentally, when we are not happy, a little cut here and there, and voilà. And to top it all off, the professional mourners, the dhimmis on service go into action at the slightest critique of all the mess brought about, created by a portion of the followers of the Lord Mohammed.

There is no way to get a word in edgewise when it involves those who call on Islamic dogma. The disciples of Mohammed have the boulevards to impose their doctrine. It is flagrant when you see all the accommodations made for their pleasure, when one lists all the waivers given to them, even if these go against the essence of French values. It is an incredible thing in a country like France, all those who find fault, in every manner, muzzled, ordered to return to the ranks of dhimmitude.

Those who are anti-Islam are left in the lion’s den when those who never cease imposing their vision of the world are supported with force by much of the media, anti-racism associations (or rather followers of stupidity), as well as political parties on the right as well as the left, without forgetting a good portion of our dear elected officials. Don’t forget those. They are so charming when it comes to defending the indefensible, and so acerbic with those looking truth in the face. Islam is a deadly doctrine.

I should not forget to say that on our territory, the same as with any Western country, a believer in Islam is called a Muslim. He is respected in his belief. He lives his faith normally, nothing is imposed upon him. On the contrary, we bend over backward that he may continue to be what he wants to be. We don’t call him a renegade, infidel, apostate, ungodly, kafir, or whatnot. Why? Because we are not in the presence of a totalitarian system like that of Islam, which imposes its teaching upon everything. We are in a secular country where each can believe in what he wants, yes, yes, even the tsetse fly if he likes. We are in a country where religious affairs are a private matter, of freedom for each person. It is the exact opposite, as opposed to Islamic doctrine, which imposes itself on all individuals, both in the private sphere as well as public. All human laws are inspired directly by the Koran, from sharia. Each precept is obligatory; there is never a dispensation. Everything is taken as-is without asking questions.

Moreover, in Islamic countries, one does not talk of individuals, citizens, or very little. One speaks of Mohammedans, the believers, the faithful, the Muslims, which amounts to saying that one could not be anything else.

The Anniversary of Egypt’s Maspero Massacre

Ashraf Ramelah revisits the massacre of Egyptian Copts that took place nine years ago this fall, and consequent events since then.

On the Anniversary of Egypt’s Maspero Massacre, Christian Copts continue to give Al-Sisi a pass

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

This autumn marked the ninth anniversary of the brutal murders of innocent Christian Copts in a tragedy known as the Maspero Massacre, when thousands of peaceful Copts and Muslims gathered on October 9, 2011 and marched towards Cairo’s Tahrir Square. On three separate occasions around that date Egyptians protested the previous eight months of ramped-up violence against Coptic Orthodox Christians. At their third and final protest, army tanks overran the peaceful crowd, killing 30 and injuring 130, while another military division arrested and “disappeared” Christian demonstrators.

The Egyptian military had assumed power in January of that same year when the late President Hosni Mubarak stepped down eighteen days after the breakout of the Arab Spring. In Egypt’s transition to elections, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), twenty-two high ranked officers (top generals including Lieutenant Major Abed El Fatah Al-Sisi), took control of all branches of government and the media.

There was a huge surge in attacks against Copts during the aftermath of the Arab Spring. The SCAF government was negligent for unreasonable delays in locating and pursuing suspects. Their failure became the green light for even more hostile elements to open fire on Copts and the churches.

In response to this, thousands of Orthodox Christians were led by two priests to gather and parade through the streets to protest these crimes. When the dust settled on “Anger Day” (the third protest) near the Maspero Radio and Television office building, there were more than one hundred arrests of lawful demonstrators by the military. Christians were hauled away and interrogated. Many were never seen again. Some were beaten and then released.

Six years later: Egypt’s presidential campaign revisits Maspero Massacre

Six years after the Maspero Massacre during the pre-election period in January of 2018, SCAF’s nefarious connection to the Maspero Massacre was made public by an insider, Lieutenant General Samy Annan, a political figure and SCAF military general. Annan’s 2018 campaign for president against incumbent Al-Sisi leaked incriminating information against the president for being the very one behind the military’s Maspero aggression.

The information was actually leaked to the public by a staff member of Annan’s presidential campaign. This staff member was subsequently arrested, tried and jailed for releasing classified military documents to the media. Annan was arrested and sentenced to house arrest by a secret military court. His political career was ruined as his campaign and political party were terminated.

Muslim Brotherhood Would Use a Biden Presidency to Advance “Congressional Jihad”

A Biden presidency, however brief it turns out to be, will be a real gift for Islamic zealots. (It’s not yet clear what President Harris’ policies will be vis-à-vis Islam, but one presumes they will be no less accommodating than those of her predecessor.) In the following guest-essay, Ashraf Ramelah discusses the prospects for the Muslim Brotherhood under a Biden administration.

Muslim Brotherhood would use a Biden presidency to advance “Congressional Jihad”

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

The 2020 American presidential election will be historically remembered as a unique election. A contested, undecided race is not new, but the media’s hype, backing and declaration for one candidate is unprecedented. Ultimately, the delay caused by the election investigation will be to expose the use of comprehensive fraud within the voting procedures of American elections, past and present. Statements by individuals witnessing voting poll crimes in the form of affidavits are appearing every day.

Once the final verdict is reached and Americans and the world are informed of who will lead the country for the next four years, Americans can do nothing less than demand a permanent fix of the election process. This seems to be a goal of the current administration. This truly is unique.

If anyone thinks a presidential outcome for Biden could occur without empowerment of Islamic radicals, then think again. Take a look at the current fervor in the Middle East over Biden’s premature presidential declaration. The Muslim Brotherhood’s (MB) overwhelming enthusiasm for the media’s Democrat “President-elect” is revealed all across the Arabic-speaking media. Certainly they stand to gain by a Biden win and also the reverse; they have much to lose with a Trump win.

Muslim Americans and the Muslim Brotherhood will thrive under Biden

Some world leaders, including the Muslim Brotherhood Deputy Morshed, have already congratulated Joe Biden, the media’s unverified choice for president. The Arabic media reported that the MB issued a “victory” statement while the Deputy Morshed gave the following official statement, “Biden victory proves that the American people can still impose their will.”

Deputy Morshed no doubt refers to media reports of more than one million Muslim-Americans (highest number ever) voting for the Democrat presidential candidate, and gives credit to them for Biden’s success. According to the Al Jazeera and Anadolu agencies, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) promised to deliver Joe Biden these votes. Since the Sharia sheep always follow the wolf, these votes could actually prove to be legal. Brotherhood members form the majority of CAIR’s board of directors. The pro-MB Arabic media are now highlighting how gratified Muslim-Americans are for the Biden “win.”

The Arabic media go on to express satisfaction felt by Muslim-Americans with Biden’s pre-election promise to lift the ban imposed by Trump on citizens of seven Muslim countries, which now prevents them from entering the United States. According to further reports, Muslim-Americans expect Biden to denounce Islamophobia and racism against Muslims in America and around the world.

Meanwhile, Arabic reports show that the enthusiasm of the Muslim Brotherhood, a designated terrorist organization in Egypt, is an all-time high with Biden — perhaps hopeful for another Obama/Biden experience like the one that elevated the MB to power not so long ago with the striking role played by the former American President and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, during the wave of the infamous Arab Spring.
