High Profile Imam Urges Denmark To Allow Muslim Child Brides: ‘It’s Part Of Their Culture’

Capture

Child brides being brought to Europe by their often considerably older migrant husbands are to be separated in Denmark, but one high profile Imam is urging the government to accept “that it is a different culture”.

A number of recent cases where marriages of adult men to girls as young as 14 years of age, sanctioned by the Danish state, has become a national scandal. Now, right-wing immigration minister Inger Støjberg has vowed the children will be protected in future, with couples where one of the parties is under 18 being separated whether they have already arrived in Denmark or not — although the age of consent in the country is just 15.

“It is completely unacceptable that there are currently minors within the Danish asylum system living with their spouses or partners and I have asked the Danish Immigration Service to immediately put a stop to it”, said Støjberg this week. In at least one case an adult husband was allowed to see his pregnant young wife under supervision, and in another the authorities were misled over the age of the wife and she was allowed to live with her husband in migrant accommodation unchecked.

It is reported eight married children in Danish asylum centres are already pregnant, or have given birth. The government is now planning to deport migrant men who marry and impregnate children, while giving the girls refuge.

Despite the strong Danish reaction to the practice of marrying children among some migrants, Imam Oussama El-Saadi of the Aarhus mosque has said the Danish government must relax their laws and respect migrant families, whatever age the brides are.

Speaking to Danish newspaper Metroxpress, the Imam said: “One should look at these cases from a different perspective. It is an extraordinary humanitarian situation, and I think you have to take care of these families. They’re married, and even if the man is twice as old as they have built a family. We have to accept that it is a different culture, and we can not destroy family life”.

The marriage of young children to older men went even further than just foreign and unfamiliar cultures arriving in Europe, said the Imam, but it was also a side-effect of the migrant crisis, he said: “If you look at the situation in the refugee camps, it is often filled with violence and uncertainty.

“If your daughter marries early and gets a man, it can give the family a safer situation”.

The Imam was of the opinion that girls married off early during the migrant crisis would be more sheltered and protected than those who were not, but added he wouldn’t allow his own daughter to marry until she turned 18.

While the youngest married girl seeking asylum in Denmark so far has been 14, other northern European states have seen similar problems, and worse. Norway saw dozens of migrant children arriving married in 2015, with one girl just eleven years old. Most of the married children came from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, as reported by Breitbart London at the time.

UK Government Police Keeps Identity of “Gay” ISIS Jihadi Secret to “Protect His Human Rights”

Capture

Let’s put this in perspective. The UK government banned me because I oppose jihad terror and speak against it. Juxtapose this with the British government keeping the identity of a “gay” ISIS jihadi secret to protect his human rights.

How does a savage have “human rights”? The West is descending into madness.

Capture

The Telegraph: Police and prosecutors attempted to keep the identity and possible homosexuality of a British jihadist a secret to protect his human rights, it can be reported today.

Officers and the Crown Prosecution Service were concerned that should details surrounding Aseel Muthana emerge during a trial of his friends who helped him join Isil it would put his life at risk.

The sexual preference of a jihadi who sought to join the Islamic State and slaughter, maim and murder in the cause of Allah was kept a secret by British authorities for fear it would endanger his life with the devout Muslim group.

They believed they still had a duty of care under human rights laws to protect the teenager, even though he had run off to join a terror group intent on attacking this country.

The concerns centred on a series of text messages between Muthana, now 19, and Forhad Rahman, 21, who helped pay for him to travel to the war zone in February 2014.
skype_3571950b

Language in the messages left their “sexuality open to interpretation” after Rahman described Cardiff man Muthana as a “Welsh cutie”.

The pair only met online two months before Muthana left but formed a “profound emotional closeness” and called each other “cutie”, “honey” and “babe” in messages.

With Isil known to murder gay men and women, prosecutors initially discussed the need for reporting restrictions either on Muthana’s name or the details of the messages.

Muthana’s brother Nasser was already in Syria and later appeared in one of Isil’s first propaganda videos in which he encouraged others to join him.

Skype chat images of Aseel Muthana talking to Forhad Rahman recovered from the phone of Forhad Rahman. phone. They are dated 22/02/2014 (the day after Muthanaleft the UK). The small inserted picture is of Rahman.

In the end, it could not be ascertained whether Muthana was gay or not and the evidence was not subject to any court order.

But during the preliminary legal argument, a CPS note read: “It is not known what the reaction of ISIS would be if they became of aware of the social media chat that Mr Muthana has entered into with the defendants. It seems unlikely that Mr Muthana would have an opportunity to defend himself in accordance with the standards of this court.”

It said the CPS and police had a “duty” under the Human Rights Act to protect him and that “does not end because Mr Muthana has left the UK or is fighting on behalf of ISIS.”

In a pre-trial briefing, the then assistant chief constable of South Wales Police Nikki Holland, who is now at Merseyside Police, said: “I don’t think it is a case of physically protecting him but he has protection of the law in human rights. He has a right to life. As a police force we protect everyone’s right to life – even a terrorist.”

The discussions were held ahead the trial of Rahman, Adeel Ulhaq, 21, and Kristen Brekke, 20, at the Old Bailey.

The three men were convicted of helping Muthana travel to Syria.

Clothing found at the home of Kristen Brekke

Rahman and Ulhaq were sentenced to five years for the preparation of terrorist acts, with Ulhaq receiving a further 12 months for terrorism funding.

Brekke was jailed for four-and-a-half years. Rahman, from Cirencester, and Ulhaq, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, were part of an online Islamist “fixer” network that helped fanatics go to Syria.

Rahman got anew passport for Muthana and paid for his coach fare to London and flight out of the UK.

Ulhaq provided advice and tips on what to take to Syria and how to get across the border from Turkey.

A gun was recovered as part of the operation

He also put Muthana in touch with Aqsa Mahmood, a notorious young jihadi bride who travelled to Syria from Glasgow in November 2013.

Ulhaq and Rahman had also previously been in contact with Portsmouth based fanatics, including Ifthekar Jaman, who was killed in Syria in December 2013.

Brekke did not know the other two but was Muthana’s friend in Cardiff and bought military-style clothing for him and held his new passport until he needed it.

The pair also filmed themselves acting out pretend war scenes at night while on a hill in Cardiff, in what prosecutors likened to the comedy film about inept terrorists “Four Lions”.

Adeel Ulhaq

In one clip, Muthana said he wanted to sing Jihadi nasheeds, or religious songs but could not remember any and instead hummed the theme to the movie “Rocky”.

Not everyone is the UK has gone insane.

Gay jihadis, human rights and an ISIS cell in Cirencester… what the hell is going on here, asks RICHARD LITTLEJOHN

By Richard Littlejohn for the Daily Mail, 11 February 2016

Rahman and his oppos will soon feel at home behind bars, as they join the 12,225 Muslim inmates who currently make up 15 per cent of all prisoners in Britain — twice the number ten years ago. In high-security jails, the figure is one in five.

And in Category A prisons — which cater for the worst offenders, such as terrorists — almost half are Muslim. (Rumour has it that the Chicken Cyclone on the culturally appropriate menu at Belmarsh is up for a Michelin star.)

All this in a country where we’re told that Muslims comprise less than 5 per cent of the total population. No wonder the Home Office is considering setting up special jihadi-only jails, to stop Islamists recruiting behind bars.

Anyway, let’s put that to one side for now. Because this is where it starts to get interesting. As the trial unfolded, it was revealed that police and prosecutors had attempted to conceal the identity of Aseel Muthana and prevent the publication of his text messages to Rahman.

They argued that they had to do this to protect his safety. Izal takes a pretty dim view of homosexuality. Men suspected of being gay are routinely blindfolded and thrown off the top of tall buildings in front of cheering crowds.

Aseel (pictured) was recruited over the internet by Rahman and they exchanged flirtatious messages, calling each other ‘babe’ and ‘honey’

The prospect of that happening to poor, sweet, vulnerable Aseel Muthana was simply too horrible for the Heddlu (that’s Welsh for Old Bill) to contemplate. Nikki Holland, Assistant Chief Constable of South Wales, said: ‘There is a real threat to him and we still have a duty of care. Everyone is entitled to police protection. It doesn’t stop at the border, even for a terrorist.

‘He has a right to life. We don’t put anything into the public domain that would deliberately impact on human rights.’

Sadly, that’s the kind of sentimental drivel we’ve come to expect from the senior ranks of the Great British Constabulary, equipped with their worthless sociology degrees and expensive sensitivity training.

At this stage, let me reiterate my admiration and support for the dedicated anti-terrorism officers who work tirelessly to keep us safe.

How must they feel when they hear some dopey bird with scrambled egg on her hat trying to defend the yuman rites of a scumbag who has run off to join a deranged Islamist death cult — and who might one day bring murder back to the streets of Britain? More to the point, when did you ever hear of any self-respecting Assistant Chief Constable calling herself ‘Nikki’? It makes her sound like a Page Three girl.
With any luck, news of Aseel’s identity and sexual proclivities will already have reached Izal and next time we see him, his head will have been severed from his body

But this is what we’re up against. As brave, jobbing coppers put their lives on the line every single day, some of their soft-in-the-head superiors are more concerned with the ‘rights’ of the terrorists they are trying to arrest.

Thank goodness the judge at the Bailey had more sense than to fall for this lunacy and we are free to know the identity of this young ‘British’ man who ran off to join the ranks of the New Nazis — and, given half the chance, would kill us all in our beds. Frankly, who cares if they did find out he was homosexual and chucked him off a tower block?

Oh dear, how sad, never mind.

For what it’s worth, I’ve always assumed half the Izal mob are gay. You often find that allegedly heterosexual gangsters and the extreme Right are big on homo-eroticism, while mouthing rabid anti-gay rhetoric. That might be why they treat women so badly. And the uniforms are a dead giveaway.

With any luck, news of Aseel’s identity and sexual proclivities will already have reached Izal and next time we see him, his head will have been severed from his body — ideally by his own brother, as part of a ritual loyalty test.

On reflection, this is one of the most depressing columns I’ve written for ages. To sum up: a young Muslim from Cardiff, whose brother is already fighting with a death cult in Syria, is recruited by an Islamist cell in Cirencester.

(When did Cirencester become a hotbed of jihad, for heaven’s sake?)

Meanwhile, the main concern of the Old Bill is trying to stop the rest of us finding out who he is — on the grounds that he’s gay and may be in danger from the very terrorist organisation he has chosen voluntarily to join.

It doesn’t bear thinking about. In the hierarchy of victimhood, do the yuman rites of homosexuals trump Muslims? Or terrorists? Or both? Or all three? Or none of the above?

I give up.

This is the brave new world we live in. Never mind You Couldn’t Make It Up or Mind How You Go. There’s only one place to file this: We Are All Going To Hell In A Handcart.

Theresa May has bottled it. She’s given Bernard Hyphen-Howe a one-year extension to his contract at Scotland Yard. He wanted three — and if he’d had any dignity he’d have rejected May’s grubby little compromise deal and walked away.

But it’s not about Bernard any more. He’s a dead man walking, a laughing stock who has lost all public confidence.

This is all about Theresa. She could have sacked him, or she could have given him the three years he so desperately sought. By awarding him a one-year contract she’s feebly endorsed Hyphen-Howe’s serial abuse of police powers and disgraceful refusal to apologise to any of those wrongly accused in the bonkers ‘historic’ sex abuse inquiries.

You don’t need me to go over his sins again. He will be remembered as the worst Met Commissioner in history. And Theresa May will be forever linked to him.

Her cowardice will not be forgotten. This is the Bisto-thick woman who fancies herself as our next Prime Minister, yet has forgiven the arrogant bully who outrageously persecuted one of her predecessors beyond the grave and smeared the reputation of a 92-year-old war hero.

Theresa and Bernard deserve each other. Quite what we’ve done to deserve either of them is beyond me.

But May’s appalling lack of judgment will come back to haunt her. Make the most of the Home Office, Theresa. It’s as good as it’s going to get for you.

I hope Bernard is worth it.

Merkel’s migrant policy ‘unsustainable,’ says French PM

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 2.23.21 PM

The foreign policy of Chancellor Angela Merkel towards asylum seekers is “unsustainable in the long term” and Europe is simply not able to take in all the refugees arriving from Syria, Iraq or African countries, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has said.

“This [Merkel’s] policy which is justified temporarily, is unsustainable in the long term,” Valls told German media, as cited by AFP.

The French PM said he believes Germany is not the only country that is unable to take all those willing to seek asylum there.

“We have to say this clearly: Europe cannot take in all migrants from Syria, Iraq or Africa. It has to regain control over its borders, over its migration or asylum policies,” said Valls, in an interview which is to be published in full by German Funke media group on Saturday.

Merkel has recently come under fire for her welcoming policy toward refugees, who have recently been arriving in Germany in unprecedented numbers. However, she claims the country can cope with the 1.1 million that arrived in 2015, and potentially more in 2016.

The recent sexual assaults against women by refugees across Germany is one issue that has contributed to growing discontent over the refugee influx. More than 60 women filed complaints of sexual harassment on New Year’s Eve in Cologne. Similar cases have been reported in other German cities such as Berlin, Frankfurt and Stuttgart. Police were accused of covering up the attacks, which seems to have added to public anger.

According to a recent poll conducted by ARD Deutschlandtrend, more than four in five Germans believe Merkel’s government isn’t controlling the refugee crisis.

Similarly, an Insa survey for Focus magazine which polled 2,047 German citizens showed that 40 percent of Germans are not satisfied with the chancellor’s refugee policy and want her to resign

Soros: ‘Putin aims at EU disintegration, threat from Russia bigger than from jihadi attacks’

You are using an outdated browser. Please upgrade your browser to improve your experience.

American and EU leaders are making a “grievous error” by taking Russian President Vladimir Putin for their ally in the fight against Islamic State, billionaire investor George Soros has stated. Putin’s real aim is the EU’s disintegration, Soros alleged.

In an opinion piece for Project-syndicate.org, the billionaire stated that “the best way to [cause the disintegration of the Euro bloc] is to flood the EU with Syrian refugees.”

“There is no reason to believe that [Putin] intervened in Syria in order to aggravate the European refugee crisis,” Soros says. “But once Putin saw the opportunity to hasten the EU’s disintegration, he seized it. He has obfuscated his actions by talking of cooperating against a common enemy, ISIS [Islamic State/IS, also known as ISIL].”

The veteran US investor goes on to say it is “hard to understand” why both Europe and Washington “take Putin at his word” instead of “judging him by his behaviour.”

“The race for survival pits the EU against Putin’s Russia,”Soros says. “ISIS poses a threat to both, but it should not be over-estimated. Attacks mounted by jihadi terrorists, however terrifying, do not compare with the threat emanating from Russia.”

According to Soros, “Putin’s Russia and the EU are engaged in a race against time: The question is which one will collapse first.”

“The Putin regime faces bankruptcy in 2017, when a large part of its foreign debt matures, and political turmoil may erupt sooner than that.”

Soros speculates that the EU may be doomed to disintegrate due to its current problems: “Ever since the financial crisis of 2008 and the subsequent rescue packages for Greece, the EU has learned how to muddle through one crisis after another. But today it is confronted by five or six crises at the same time, which may prove to be too much. As Merkel correctly foresaw, the migration crisis has the potential to destroy the EU.”

He further maintains that “Putin will be able to gain considerable economic benefits from dividing Europe and exploiting the connections with commercial interests and anti-European parties that he has carefully cultivated.”

In October 2015, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban lashed out at Soros, blaming him for fueling the refugee crisis in Europe. Orban criticized the support Soros had expressed towards refugees from the Middle East heading to Europe, saying that the billionaire undermines stability on the continent.

Soros made a name for himself as the “man who broke the Bank of England” by engaging in questionable Forex hedging and betting against sterling – which made him more than $1 billion in one day in September 1992. Some speculate that Soros has been the beneficiary of insider trader information while making investments. In 2002 a Paris court found Soros guilty of using inside information to profit from the 1988 takeover deal for bank Societe Generale.

In November, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office recognized George Soros’s Open Society Institute and another affiliated organization as undesirable groups, banning Russian citizens and organizations from participation in any of their projects. Prosecutors said the activities of the Open Society Institute and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation were a threat to the foundations of Russia’s constitutional order and national security. The Soros Foundation started working in Russia in the mid-1990s, but wrapped up its active operations in 2003.

ISIS VIDEO: Four-Year Old British Muslim Boy ‘Jihadi Junior’ BLOWS UP 4 in Car Bomb Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar!’ ‘We Will Kill the Kufar!’

By Jay Akbar For Mailonline, February 10, 2016

The four year old British boy dubbed ‘Jihadi Junior’ has been filmed detonating the bomb which kills four ISIS prisoners in the group’s latest execution video.

Isa Dare, the son of Muslim convert Grace ‘Khadija’ Dare from south east London, pushes the button that blows up four alleged spies sitting in a white car behind him.

Standing triumphantly next to the charred remains of the car, his hand raised to the sky, the boy then yells: ‘Allahu Akbar.’

It is the second time the young boy, who was brainwashed after his mother took him to Syria three years ago, has appeared in one of the extremists’ propaganda videos.

His grandfather told of how the child begged him to save him just days before he was forced to appear in the first video last month.

In what was seen as a ‘promotion’ of this latest murderous release, Dare was made to declare: ‘We are going to kill the kuffar [non-believers] over there’ – before pointing to the men killed in today’s video.

Today’s video, which is believed to be shot in ISIS’s de facto capital of Raqqa, was entitled: ‘They are the enemy so be aware of them.’

One by one, each man confessed to either spying on, or conspiring against, ISIS. They were later seen handcuffed to the inside of a car – with a look of utter fear in their eyes.

Before they were killed, the senior ISIS commander standing next to the boy threatened British Prime Minister David Cameron for arming the terror group’s enemies in Syria.

He said: ‘You will never fight us except behind fortified fortresses or behind walls.

‘So no David Cameron, you’ve given the whole world more certainty in this [inaudible]. You’ve only done two things.

‘Firstly, when you sent your spies to Syria and when you authorised for your men, thousands of miles away, to push a button to kill our brothers who lived in the West.

‘So today, we’re going to kill your spies the same way they helped you kill our brothers.’

As he placed a hand on the young boy’s head, he added: ‘So prepare your army and gather your nations as we too are preparing our army.

Young Dare was brainwashed by ISIS fanatics after his mother, 24, who had links to Lee Rigby’s killer, brought him to the warzone.

His grandfather, Henry Dare, 59, said Isa made a desperate plea for help during a heartbreaking phone call just days before he featured in the barbaric stunt, saying: ‘Please save me.’

It later emerged that Isa’s father had made a desperate attempt to rescue his son after his estranged wife fled to Syria and married an ISIS militant.

Asked if he thought his grandson had any idea what he was saying in the video, Mr Dare – of Deptford, south east London – said: ‘No – he’s a kid.

New ISIS ‘HELP DESK’ to Aid Muslims Hiding from Western Authorities

Capture

With Obama as President, the Islamic State has taken our technology and ran circles around us.

The San Bernardino jihadis employed the tactics recommended by the Islamic State, and the FBI cannot crack their phones. Obama’s priority is dismantling counter-terror programs and scrubbing jihad ties and jihad activity from the records of Muslim terrorists.

“New ISIS ‘help desk’ to aid hiding from authorities,” By Cory Bennett, The Hill, February 10, 2016:

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has opened up a new technical “help desk” that aims to help terrorists hide from Western authorities, according to researchers.

The Electronic Horizon Foundation (EHF) was launched on Jan. 30 as a joint effort of several of the top ISIS cybersecurity experts, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) said in a new report.

While researchers have previously uncovered an ISIS “help desk” and 34-page manual that help extremists encrypt their communications, MEMRI said the EHF takes these services to an “alarming” new level.

“Jihadis have long sought technical information, which has been confined in the past to various password-protected jihadi forums,” said the MEMRI report, shared exclusively with The Hill. “However, the freedom and ease by which they can now obtain that information is alarming, especially when such information is shared over private and secure channels.”

The EHF operates on the encrypted messaging platform Telegram but also maintains a Twitter account that disseminates information and directs followers to its secure Telegram channel.

The group’s self-stated goal is clear: “Spreading security and technical awareness among the monotheists.”

According to an announcement celebrating the EHF launch, ISIS has spent a year establishing the group with the goal of “unifying the technical and security efforts, and uniting the ranks of the mujahideen’s supporters.”

It brings together several technical support entities, such as the Information Security channel on Telegram and the “Islamic State Technician,” an ISIS security specialist thought to be behind a leading password-protected technical forum.

The announcement, which the MEMRI translated, was also direct that the EHF had been formed “due to the electronic war and tight surveillance imposed by the Western intelligence apparatuses over Internet users, and their tracking and following of the mujahideen and their supporters, and targeting them based on their data and information, which they share over the Internet.”

EHF pledged to provide resources to help combat this surveillance.

“It is time to face the electronic surveillance, educate the mujahideen about the dangers of the Internet, and support them with the tools, directives and security explanations to protect their electronic security, so that they don’t commit security mistakes that can lead to their bombardment and killing,” the announcement said.

As of early this week, the EHF Telegram account had over 2,200 members.

MEMRI said EHF has not posted much yet, “but it is expected to take the lead nonetheless in content posted as time goes by.”

If the group follows in the footsteps of its creators, its content will be “defensively-oriented,” such as tutorials on mobile phone security, instead of “offensively-oriented,” such as instructions on launching cyberattacks, MEMRI said.

FBI unable to crack San Bernardino jihad killers’ cell phone

Capture

They can’t even get into this cell phone, and they’re going to keep us safe from future attacks? The ISIS jihadis have outstripped the FBI in encryption technology, and Obama calls them the JV team. The FBI is going for help to the tech industry, when it should have the very best, cutting-edge decoding technology. But it doesn’t, because the Obama administration is committed to the idea that we’re not in a war, and refuses to acknowledge either the enemy ideology or its capabilities.

​FBI unable to crack San Bernardino killers’ cell phone,” CBS, February 9, 2016:

WASHINGTON — FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday one of the phones used by the killers in the San Bernardino, California, attacks remains inaccessible to investigators more than two months after 14 people were fatally shot.

Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey cited the case as an example of how encryption is affecting counterterrorism efforts. But he said the dilemma of bad guys “going dark” is mostly affecting state and local law enforcement officials who are trying to solve murder, drug and car accident cases.

Companies are increasingly making devices such as cellphones with encryption that allows only the people communicating to read the messages.

Comey said it’s a big problem when law enforcement armed with a search warrant can’t open a phone, even when a judge says there’s probable cause to have it opened.

The December 2 shooting left 14 people dead and 22 others wounded….

The White House has called on the tech industry for help in disrupting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and other terrorist groups. Investigators say the San Bernardino shooting was inspired by ISIS.
