Qatar allegedly continues to put out billions of dollars in supporting and financing terrorist and extremist operations in Europe. It is reported in international newspapers that Qatar sends its funds through the Qatar Charity Foundation, where they were recently provided with about 71 million euros to be delivered to the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe under a charitable cover .

It has been stated by various sources the alleged details of Qatar’s plans, with the participation of the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe and the participation of Doha in establishing more than 90 centers for the terrorist group in various European countries. Reports also revealed the contribution of the Qatar Charity Foundation in financing 140 projects in Europe worth more than 120 million euros, including 47 projects in Italy, 22 projects in France and Spain, and 10 projects in Germany. The British newspaper The Times, confirmed that the Qatari “Al-Rayan” bank in Britain was involved in providing financial services to terrorist organizations in United kingdom.

Another report said that Qatar allegedly spends billions of dollars to penetrate the Western education system to improve the image of the Qatar regime and cover its terrorist operations as part of and propaganda for the benefit of Doha. Lawyers confirmed that it is a violation of US federal laws and requires comprehensive investigations. Qatar’s contributions exceed more than 1.5 billion to fund a range of initiatives in educational institutions at 28 American universities, making it one of the most prolific foreign funders in the American educational system,  raising doubts about the possible hidden objectives of the Qatari government from these suspicious donations.

The Danger of Returning Muslim Foreign Fighters in Europe and their Cooperation with Local Sleeper Cells.

by:Rami Dabbas

Europe is awaiting uncommon and unpredictable jihadist threats that are not only linked to specific organizations, but are also based on local extremism originating from within. In addition, European fighters who were in Syria and Iraq later returned to their country of origin. This exacerbates the problem of the  presence of internal and sleeper cells in Europe.

In spite of Islamic State’s defeat in Syria and Iraq, European security officials are feeling rather anxious. The defeat of the terrorist organizations in the Middle East means that imminent future problems will occur in Europe, given the surrender of the European fighters and their return to their homes. The fighters may have been defeated on the battlefield, but they still hold on to their extremism, having acquired invaluable military technical expertise, while in the ranks of militant terrorist groups.

However, 2017 was the year of “home-grown terrorism” in Europe, not the year of the return of foreign fighters. When examining the record of the 16 terrorist attacks that occurred in 2017 in Austria, Finland, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden, we will find that all of their perpetrators were local extremists, not returning fighters. Even the Islamic State claimed responsibility only for seven of these attacks.

And of course, the doubling of the number of unpopular attacks that are not claimed by any particular group, but carried out by individuals without ties to jihadi Islamist organizations underscores the fact that Europe is heading towards a multi-faced, unpredictable jihadist threat, and this is what the major European security services fear.

In this context, the “local” or “home-grown” attackers are those European individuals who have not traveled to Iraq or Syria, but who act on behalf of foreign jihadi Islamist organizations, after they have developed contacts with them online, or feel ideological contact with them. Therefore, since they did not travel to terrorist territory or have physical contact  with these terrorist organizations, this makes the matter more complicated for the security services, in terms of predicting or preventing such attacks.

Indeed, it is a clearly European problem. The majority of the attackers are first-generation immigrants who have lived in Europe for many years or settled in them as second-generation individuals. It is possible that members of the first generation arrived in Europe without terrorist intentions, but later became extremists, like their second generation colleagues.

The (local) attackers are also older than foreign fighters, so the “youth category” component is not a useful as security indicator for European security services. It is also noticeable that many of the attackers have a criminal record.

Attack methods have changed as well, and apart from the Barcelona attack, all 2017 attacks in Europe were individual actions. With the exception of the two failed attacks in Brussels and Paris, the attacks of 2017 were unfamiliar and generally uncomplicated, and this of course is a change from the sophisticated and technologically developed plans that terrorist cells have developed in the past.

What increases the danger of the threats that await Europe are the returning European fighters after the defeat of the Islamic State in the Middle East, including fighters, planners, promoters and recruiting specialists. Of course, the threat of the return of foreign fighters is no less ominous than that of local extremists.

These (European) foreign fighters can recruit and encourage individuals in Europe to work locally, without inciting them to travel to join ISIS. For example, the Marseille striker is believed to have become radicalized by his brother, who fought with ISIS in Syria between 2014 and 2016. More broadly, returnees may become a real threat in the long run, working as extremist agent recruiters starting with prisons,  for example.

The extremist recruitment experts certainly have a wide range of goals, especially since the European Union is home to up to 50,000 “extremist” Muslims. The concern is that extremism continues to grow in many Western European countries. Of course, the “snowball effect” would serve the extremists well when they attract family or friends alongside them, concerning in the absence of adequate treatment for the fertile environment of extremism in Europe. To make matters worse, “mutual extremism” has become a serious problem, which leads to mutual violence by various parties.

Germany Bans Hezbollah

by: Rami Dabbas

unnamed

How is Germany important to Hezbollah?

In the footsteps of the  United States of America and The United Kingdom, the authorities in Germany recently announced a complete ban on the activities of the Lebanese “Hezbollah” in Germany.  After it revealed a serious intention to take such a step several months ago,  the security in Germany began a campaign to pursue and besiege each of the Militia’s followers on German soil; This places Hezbollah in a real predicament, given their vital dependence on an external network of supporters spread throughout the world.

Institutions and centers

Germany represents one of the countries that has witnessed an extensive spread of Hezbollah institutions, religious centers and associations, and it seeks to mobilize support for it. According to a report published by “Fox News”  based on German intelligence reports issued last year, there are 1050 Hezbollah operatives active in Germany, and that about 30 mosques and cultural centers on German soil have links to Hezbollah.

Hezbollah is facing a real dilemma with increasing pressure on its branches and the pursuit of its working with institutions in the countries of the world; especially those responsible for providing and transporting money. The German Ministry of the Interior indicated that the authorities are investigating mosques and associations linked to “Hezbollah”, on charges related to financial support and propaganda for the Militia in Europe.
The “Fox News” report also revealed intelligence information in Bremen, stating that the “Mustafa Community Center“, controlled by “Hezbollah”, is a major fundraising center for the Militia, and it worked to send funds directly to its headquarters in Beirut.
Hezbollah, by setting up an infrastructure of this size for Hezbollah in Germany, opens wide questions about its tasks; whether at the level of money transfers or prohibited trade, pointing out that there is an intelligence war to reveal what Hezbollah is doing in more than one country in the world, and this has lead to an organized international campaign against the Militia.
Hezbollah has an external operations unit that is trying to find a foothold in all areas vital to the Militia; Either in Latin America or in Europe.

An important step

Canada, the United States, Britain, the Netherlands, Israel, the League of Arab States, and a number of Latin American countries currently  entirely ban the organization of Hezbollah; but the European Union banned only the “military wing” of Hezbollah in 2013, while allowing its “political wing” to operate in Europe.
Hezbollah has always relied on a network connections to the organization, associations, and foundations in many countries of the world; with the aim of mobilizing financing on the one hand, and finding logistical headquarters for its activities on the other hand, with Germany’s recent ban putting them in a predicament.
The German government justified its important move to besiege the Militia; because of its “continuing to demand the annihilation of Israel and the fight against its existence”, in addition to the party’s responsibility for the killing of many people in different regions around the world; among them are hundreds of thousands of Syrians.
Germany is of great importance to the party; it is considered a safe haven for some of its members, and this is what the German Foreign Ministry said, noting that “the party is working to collect donations in Germany and Europe through all the organizations and associations that have close ties with Arab and Islamic countries”.
As the German step is very important, because it opens the way for more countries to follow their example in Europe. In Germany, there are no official institutions that work directly for Hezbollah. This made the tracking task difficult, but the authorities succeeded in confining them and storming them in several German cities after the ban was issued.

MPP Gila Martow deserves an apology from NCCM and Jaffari Centre

On May 21, 2020, Canadian Jewish Record published an article concerning PC MPP Gila Martow’s apology to the Jaffari Islamic Centre for her tweet about CD4HR activist Firas Al Majim. This apology was prompted by NCCM (National Council of Canadian Muslims) a watchdog group against Islamophobia. According to the article, “A Jewish MPP and an Islamic centre in her riding have kissed and made up following two days of pointed verbiage.”

Canadian Jewish Record is a new online publication, the brainchild of Bernie Farber, who is co-founder and publisher, Ron Csillag, co-founder and editor, Zack Babins, associate editor, Josh Tapper, associate editor and Michael Marmer, photo editor.

Did Canadian Jewish Record get it wrong? Should the article perhaps have read “Gila Martow deserves an apology”?

NCCM accused Martow of failing to contact the Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat of Toronto (ISIJ) before issuing her statement. “As would have been abundantly clear if MPP Martow had endeavoured to undertake the appropriate diligence that a reasonable person would have expected by actually calling the Jaffari Community Centre, she would have been immediately informed that this video and message was made by someone who had no authorization to do so,” said Mustafa Farooq, CEO of NCCM. Farooq further said, “Putting out a press release without getting all the facts straight – and without even endeavouring to do so – is simply unacceptable.”

The allegation made by NCCM was based on ISIJ’s statement. “We do not know the individual who recorded himself on our premises at the Jaffari Community Centre in the City of Vaughan,” said ISIJ of Toronto Vice President, Shafiq Ebrahim. “The individual came to our premises without our authorization and we did not request nor allow this recording to occur,” he added. 

NCCM believed ISIJ’s statement was reliable. Did NCCM “undertake the appropriate diligence” to verify the ISIJ’s statement about “not knowing” Firas Al-Najim? 

The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs found contradicting accounts. On March 31, 2019 Firas Al Najim published the letter he sent to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. According to this document, Shafiq Ebrahim,the Vice President of the Islamic Shia Ithna-Asheri Jamaat of Toronto, endorsed Firas Al Najim’s letter. 

A few years ago Firas Al Najim issued a statement in which he wrote: “Eid Mubarak… special thanks for all the Hospitality and hardwork in all centers from Al Zahra Center, Imam Ali Center, Al Huda Center, Al Mostafa Center, Masumeen Center, Jaffari Center, Imam Al Mahdi Center…” 

Moreover, On May 19, 2020 Canadian Defenders For Human Rights (CD4HR) issued the following statement:

UNFORTUNATELY @isijoftoronto @JaffariCC Administration have lied & dissociated from our manager @Islamic_HR [Firas Al Najim] out of fear of the #Zionist politician @GilaMartow & the zionist influential bullying network. Al Najim had permission & is embedded in the community. DETAILED RELEASE SOON

Interestingly, in their statement both NCCM and ISIJ referred to Firas Al-Najim as “this individual” failing to mention his name, the organization he runs (CD4HR), his previous highly controversial statements against Israelis, Zionists and Jews let alone failing to condemn his speech in question. They completely ignored that.

It appears that the Canadian Jewish Record chose the wrong headline. MPP Gila Martow deserves an apology from NCCM and ISIJ.

Activist that declined to report on Islamist hate speech blasted by Islamic group

Bernie Farber, President of Antihate.ca Source: youtube screenshot

Bernie Farber, chairman of Canadian Anti-Hate network has been called out by an Islamic group for his allegedly being a “supporter of racist Zionist policies and has repeatedly gone after Canadian-Jewish activists who defend Palestine”

“On December 23, 2019 “United Dawah Organizations of Canada” posted:

Who is Bernie Farber? The Muslim Community in Canada should know who this man is. He’s been trying to build relations with the Muslim community in Canada, but not everyone is familiar with his background and his efforts to undermine the concerns of the Palestinian community in Canada. Farber markets himself as an “anti-racist” and “friend” of Muslims in Canada. However, he is an adamant supporter of racist Zionist policies and has repeatedly gone after Canadian-Jewish activists who defend Palestine.”

This was reported on by The Documentation Project, read the story here.

A previous article concerning the Anti-Hate network was published by Circanada in January with concerns about inconsistency in their reporting on incidents of hate in Canada. Read the story here.

In that article, it was pointed out that CAHN studiously avoided reporting on hate speech  by Islamists in Canada.

The latest article by The Documentation project would lead one to believe that favoritism is not always beneficial when fighting hate.

Sharia courses recognized by the Quebec Bar?

Original story posted February 2019 by Les Manchettes in French. See original here

cours-sur-la-charia-Barreau-du-Qubec

Michèle Sirois, President of the Women’s Rights in Quebec group , revealed in her testimony before the study committee of Bill 59 that the Canadian Association of Muslim Lawyers (CMLA) is offering courses on the subject of Sharia …

The video that demonstrates the proof has been removed several times from Youtube, here it is again:

 

canadian-muslim-lawyers-assciation

canadian-muslim-lawyers-assciation-cmla

^^”CMLA provides training on the following theme: The recognition of the Muslim “Kafala” (sponsorship) in Quebec civil law and Canadian immigration law: state of play and possible solutions.  Training recognized by the Quebec Bar…..”

From their facebook page ‘about’ section:

“The CMLA represents Muslim individuals of all backgrounds who are in the legal profession in Canada.

We exist to interact with and assist Muslim lawyers, law students, the Muslim community, the legal profession and the public at large in various capacities.

Professional Advocacy – The CMLA advocates areas of interest for Muslim lawyers and law students to organizations such as the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Canadian Bar Association and other professional and non-professional organizations, including the various levels of government.

Education – The CMLA is involved in providing education to the Muslim community regarding the Canadian legal system and the common law. We also conduct “in-house” education for CMLA members with respect to various areas of the law. In addition, we endeavour to educate and sensitize the profession to the legal needs of the Muslim community.

Networking – The CMLA acts as a catalyst for networking between Muslim lawyers, with other Muslim professionals, and networking with other organizations to make them aware of our expanding group.

Peer Support – The CMLA provides mentorship to students, assistance with job placement, referrals and general support to our Muslim peers in the legal community.”

According to the CMLA website: “The Muslim Kafala, (sponsorship) which is found in many countries of Islamic law, is not an adoption within the meaning of Quebec civil law but rather a child care, similar to a guardianship. . ”

Ms. Sirois said that children in care under the kafala do not enjoy the same rights as biological or adopted children.

She also reported on Shariah courses at the University of Montreal, and notaries offering Shariah-compliant wills and marriage contracts.

In the United Kingdom, the Law Society had adopted guidelines on sharia-compliant wills that caused an outcry over discriminatory provisions against widows, some orphans and non-Muslims. They were withdrawn, and the Law Society apologized.

Islamism Within

Downloads17

This information was received from an unnamed individual and deserves consideration and further investigation.

Much has been written about Islamists within our government systems. The upcoming election has the highest number of Muslim candidates in Canadian history, and several of these candidates are affiliated with Islamist organizations.

Canada has several members of parliament currently in office who have spoken of their loyalty to sharia and in some cases, there is a  connection with radical entities.

A particularly concerning phenomenon with this election is the number of candidates that are allegedly connected to the Pakistani intelligence unit,  Inter-Services Intelligence or ISI. This unit has been linked to political assassinations, drug smuggling and the smuggling of nuclear components. It has also embraced radical extremism.  It has also been charged with using Islamic militants in a campaign of terror to wrench control of the provinces of Jammu and Kashmir from the Indians.

Canada’s Senator from the Conservative Party Salma Attaullahjan, has troubling and ongoing associations with Pakistan’s intelligence agency, ISI. This intelligence agency is responsible for ongoing terrorist attacks against India, NATO, and the Canadian Armed Forces. Canada’s former Ambassador to Afghanistan and former Conservative Immigration Minister Chris Alexander points to Pakistan as a state sponsor of terrorism.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/pakistan-a-state-sponsor-of-terrorism-chris-alexander-says-1.2593584

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-40132368

Despite these disturbing assertions, Senator  Attaullahjan arranged a meeting between Pakistan’s Ex-Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, who is said to have direct influence of both the Pakistan Army and ISI, and Canadian Khalistani leader Sukhminder Singh Hansra at Parliament Hill on March 19th, 2019.

Canada’s public safety report clearly states that the ‘Khalistan Movement’ is a threat to Canadian Security, yet Senator Attaullahjan invited the Khalistani leader along with several Khalistanis to parliament on Pakistan Day. Mr. Hansra (Khalistani leader) spoke in his speech about dismembering India. Concerning indeed that Senator AttaullahJan arranged the platform for Mr. Hansra to speak and recorded and promoted his speech.

https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/rsrcs/pblctns/2009-02-rdv/index-en.aspx

It is believed by many within the Pakistani community that Senator Salma Attahullahjan, with the help of Ishaq Muhammad, is actively trying to influence candidate acclamation for specific candidates to get ISI linked Pakistanis acclaimed as candidates.

This is the very definition of political entryism by an Islamist group and has the potential to destroy the conservative party and could have significant effects on Canada’s national security.

Ishaq Muhammed is Conservative Party of Canada leader Andrew Scheer’s driver and contact adviser whenever Mr Scheer attends events in the Toronto region. Mr. Muhammed has alleged ties to the Pakistani ISIS. Mr Muhammed publicly berated Liberal MP Omar Alghabra for not contradicting his party’s stance on Islamic and Sikh  terrorism.

Iftikhar Choudhry is acclaimed Conservative candidate for Humber River-Black Creek, Ontario.  Iftikhar has a very basic comprehension of the English language and according to multiple sources within the Pakistani community, he has two cousins and an uncle all working for the Pakistan Interservice Intelligence Agency (ISI). Also, according to sources within the Pakistani community,  Iftikhar Choudhry has appointed his undeclared second wife as a campaign manager. Like many Islamist or Muslim extremists, he has two wives.

Irshad Chuadry, Conservative candidate from Scarborough Centre,  has always been a staunch Liberal supporter, but acting on advisement, he sought the conservative nomination. He is a close ally and friend of Islamist Liberal MP Salma Zahid who allegedly has strong ties to the Muslim brotherhood. She advised him to become a candidate for the Conservative Party. She told Mr Chuadry that the riding would stay in Pakistani control even she loses to him. Irshad Chaudry has a very basic command of the English language.

Zia Choudhry was acclaimed as the Toronto-Danforth Conservative candidate. Zia is linked with Danforth Madinah Mosque, allegedly one of the most extremists mosques in Ontario. The Madinah Mosque is one of the 13 mosques that hosted Saudi Cleric and Islamist Shaikh, Dr. Muhammad Al-Luhaidan, brought in by Islamic Relief Canada. Zia Choudry’s family serves in the Pakistan army and Interservice Intelligence Agency, ISI.

Ms. Nadirah Nzeer was acclaimed as the Conservative candidate in the Toronto Beaches riding. Although it is uncertain how close her ties are to the Pakistani Interservice Intelligence agency, she is allegedly taking donations from local real estate agents with links to the Pakistani Interservice Intelligence agency (ISI). 

Cyma Musarat is the Conservative  candidate for Pickering Uxbridge, Ontario. Ms. Musarat has concerning ties with a Mr. Walied Solimon, who is said to have rented a house on Ms Musarat’s property.  Walied Solimon, Chair of Norton Rose Fulbright lawfirm is alleged to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood along with his brothers Yousuf and Hany through family connections. Mr. Solimon has allegedly recorded admitting to being affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood during an investigation in Hamilton. He allegedly asked the judge in this case to seal the transcript sighting a procedural loophole. His brother Hany Solimon is on the board of directors of Islamic Relief Canada, an affiliated group of Islamic Relief World Wide listed as a sponsor of terrorism by middle eastern governments.

https://circanada.com/2019/02/11/facts-about-islamic-relief-worldwide-and-islamic-relief-canada-just-the-facts/

Ms. Musarat harshly attacked a moderate Muslim activist at a political event in 2018 discussing Islamisation. When the activist asked about how to combat FGM, Ms Musurat  condemned the activist as being Islamophobic despite the activist in question being Muslim herself.

What the above information does is show the firm foot in the door that Islamist ideology has in Canadian politics.  It deserves further investigation.

 

 

 

 

NCCM Once Again Calling for Resignation of Conservative Candidate

 

Today, the National Council of Canadian Muslims once again are calling for the dropping of Conservative candidate Ghada Melek.  Below is their statement on a facebook post:

“We appreciate that all people can change. But when candidates express hateful views, apologies have to be directed towards the communities affected, not towards political parties.

That’s why we are continuing to call for Ghada Melek’s resignation.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer stated that if a Conservative candidate has made racist or homophobic comments in the past, he will stand by the candidate as long as they apologize and take responsibility for those comments.

But Ghada Melek’s apology doesn’t take responsibility.

“As a Coptic Christian, I know what my family and friends often endured under Morsi and the Brotherhood, and that passion may have got the best of me at times,” she said in a statement. “While these are almost entirely retweets from more than half a decade ago, I do understand how some of them may be offensive, and I do regret that as well as retweeting them…”

While we of course decry any oppression of the Coptic community in Egypt, no candidate for elected government in Canada should promote utter nonsense against the Muslim community on that basis (like when she blamed “Islamists” for the economic crisis in Detroit)

We would be happy to accept Ghada Melek’s apology when it a) clearly denounces anti-Muslim bigotry and Islamophobia and b) commits to meeting folks from diverse backgrounds to learn more.

An apology where Melek states that some of her retweets “may have been offensive” isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on.

We aren’t asking for much. Asking that a person who is apologizing understands the harm caused, and commits to learning more, should be obvious.

If Ghada Melek can’t commit to doing better, she has no place in standing to be a candidate.

When you share the hateful views of the Clarion Project (which was named by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate organization) it’s time to demonstrate that you’re willing to grow as a person.

Without a real apology, despite giving Ghada Melek numerous opportunities to engage in such a process, we have no choice but to continue to call on Andrew Scheer, alongside other folks in the Muslim Council of Peel and Imam Ibrahim Hindy, to drop Ghada as a candidate.”

On August 4, Circanda posted a story of the initial concerns of NCCM. We countered that with concerns of our own. Our concerns still stand.

NCCM has had ties with CAIR, an American human rights group whose founder Nihad Awad has voiced support for the terror group Hamas.

“Awad publicly declared “I am in support of the Hamas movement,” during a March 1994 symposium at Barry University”

Although they changed their name from CAIR Canada to NCCM in 2013, no apology was forthcoming for CAIR founder’s  support for Hamas, there was no removing themselves from any association with the parent group.

“We remain the same organization our constituents and partners have come to rely on to represent a broad and diverse spectrum of Canadian Muslims.”

NCCM Calling for Resignation of CPC Candidate for her Reparative Therapy Viewpoint.

webp.net-resizeimage-3-4

Interesting, this.

NCCM is calling for the resignation of CPC candidate GHADA MELEK in light of her ‘homophobic’ viewpoint where she appeared to endorse in the past reparative therapy for those in the LGBTQ lifestyle.

She is also under fire for ‘Islamophobic’ comments as well.

Ms Melek is a Coptic Christian, well acquainted with religious persecution at the hands of Islamists. NCCM (National Council of Canadian Muslims)  seems to have her in their sights for bringing her down under the guise of standing up for human rights.

https://www.nccm.ca/nccm-calls-for-conservative-candidate-ghada-meleks-resignation/?fbclid=IwAR3R1FwLNkB8eVauhJY-4l3FtK878oRycCJmsVqtFRBEt3yGz-LfJoe75KI

“GHADA MELEK’S PAST ISLAMOPHOBIC VIEWS, COUPLED WITH TODAY’S REVELATIONS, REQUIRE IMMEDIATE ACTION

(Toronto – August 2, 2019) The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is calling for the resignation of federal Conservative candidate (Mississauga-Streetsville) Ghada Melek in light of recent revelations where Melek appeared to endorse reparative therapy for gay people in the past.

“While we have engaged Melek’s office in conversation around her past reported Islamophobic tweets, retweets, and statements, the most recent revelations have forced us to ask whether Melek is qualified to serve as a federal candidate,” says Nadia Hasan, NCCM’s Acting Executive Director. “Simply put, federal candidates have a responsibility to serve everyone, regardless of their faith or sexual orientation. Given her past statements, Ms. Melek should do the right thing and resign as a candidate for the Conservative party.”

As the NCCM recognizes that Andrew Scheer, leader of the Conservative Party, has explicitly stated that there is no room for discriminatory conduct in the party, and that the vast majority of Conservative Party members reject the aforementioned views, the time has come for Melek to resign.

The NCCM is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit organization that is a leading voice for civic engagement and the promotion of human rights.”

A reminder: Quran (7:80-84) – “…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds…. And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)” – An account that is borrowed from the Biblical story of Sodom. Muslim scholars through the centuries have interpreted the “rain of stones” on the town as meaning that homosexuals should be stoned, since no other reason is given for the people’s destruction.

One would think that NCCM would support Ms Melek’s views in view of Quranic scripture.

 

Qatar and Terrorism

by: Rami Dabbas

How-Qatar-Has-Been-Supporting-the-Muslim-Brotherhood-for-Years-1

Reasons for Qatar’s support for terrorism were limited to finding a foothold in some Arab and regional countries due to the small and weak state of Qatar and the lack of any political or military weight in the Middle East. Qatar has supported terrorism in IraqSyriaYemenLibyaTunisia and Egypt, and has recorded record numbers in support and funding of extremist groups and terrorist activities in Europe and the west. Indeed, Qatar succeeded in penetrating some countries by spreading terrorism, destabilization of security and the formation of armed terrorist groups like Al Qaeda in Syria and Iraq   They purchase political power and influence, furthering the Qatari dream to give the illusion of being a regional power.

The main supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was Qatar. The resounding fall of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the insistence of the Egyptian people to get rid of this organization has had a great impact on the psyche of Qatari Regime. This, in turn had a very negative effect on Qatar’s policies towards Egypt and the rest Arab countries which rejected the Muslim Brotherhood’s terrorism and who also worked to eradicate it from that region and the world.  Qatar’s support for terrorism became a political ideology that seeped  into  Qatari military, security, diplomatic and even charitable institutions. This has led to the increase in the spread of terrorism in the region in an unprecedented manner, accompanied by the emergence of many terrorist groups under the support of Qatar via funds and weapons. This has prompted the Arab countries to boycott Qatar in order to stop it’s terrorist activities that violated the security and stability of the region.  Qatar funded  Muslim Brotherhood Activities in Europe and promoted Europe’s Islamization in their alliance with Turkey. The announcement of Qatar’s solidarity with Iran and its coordination with the Revolutionary Guards which is designated as terrorist organization by the United States, the Quds Force and the Iranian intelligence  worked to undermine security and stability against the Arab countries in particular and worldwide in general. The siege of Qatar’s activities in support of terrorism in the Gulf region and worldwide continues. They support the activities of notorious anti West activists Linda Sarsour and Ilhan Omar  for example and in an attempt to exploit poor youth, they recruit them for  terrorist organizations like the Houthis in Yemen, Hezbollah and Iraqi sectarian Terrorist militias and remnants of Isis, in order to destabilize national security, especially in Egyptian and Saudi Arabia in retaliation for isolating Qatar and it’s ally. the Muslim Brotherhood.  Qatar has hampered  progress and development in the Arab anti Muslim Brotherhood countries by targeting security and stability, striking at their relations with the world and trying to target their interests and investments. This has become one of the main reasons for Qatar’s support for terrorism.

Qatar has become an ally to Iran and it’s proxies including Erdogan’s Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood. Qatar has become a tool of Iranian terrorism and Turkish interventions and a financial tool for Turkey’s proxies in Europe. Because of it’s alliance with Iran and Turkey, it has now become a  dangerous  security risk for Arabic countries and the world in general.
Why is Qatar  important to the United States? Simply because of  Al Udeid Air Base which is one of the most important US bases in the world. It is used by other US allies for military operations like the United kingdom and Australia during the gulf wars and operations in Syria.  Qatar is a tiny, rich state which pays for US lobbyists and US politicians to influence Some of US policies. for example : ”Qatar has spent $16.3 million lobbying the U.S. in 2017, compared to $4.2 million in 2016, in an attempt to lobby about 250 people who can influence President Trump’s foreign policy”.

Qatar. Small, but dangerous.
