President Obama Knew of ISIS’ Threat to Behead Foley, Did Nothing

As ISIS dominates Iraq and terrorism is on the rise, our president remains on vacation and, seemingly, uninterested in doing anything to curb the rise of radical Islam throughout the world.

As Christians are routinely murdered for their faiths and the Jewish State of Israel continues to fight for its existence, our president offers shallow sentiments and weak follow-throughs on promises to keep America and her allies safe from the threat of terrorism.

The world watched in horror as American journalist James Foley was beheaded. The world was shocked and appalled except for the White House who, reportedly, knew of ISIS’ intentions before the beheading.

On Wednesday, ABC reporters Arlette Saenz and White House correspondent Jonathan Karl reported, “ISIS had recently threatened to kill U.S. journalist James Foley to avenge airstrikes the United States has conducted in Iraq, a senior U.S. official told ABC News.”

ABC News further reported,
At least one news organization said it notified the White House about threats it received regarding Foley. Phillip Balboni, CEO and founder of the online news service Global Post, told ABC News’ Brian Ross that the company received an e-mail on Aug. 13 demanding ransom and threatening to execute Foley. Balboni said the threat was shared with the White House.

Balboni said his news organization began receiving threats from Foley’s captors via e-mail as early as last fall. The final e-mail Balboni received was “vitriolic and filled with rage against the United States,” he said.

“It was deadly serious,” Balboni told reporters.
According to reports, militants have threatened to similarly murder American journalist Steven Sotloff, who went missing in August.

Foley and Sotloff were both presumed to be in the hands of Assad’s regime in Syria. However, if the Syrian government turned the captives over to ISIS terrorists, it will likely create friction in the already-tense relationship with Syria.

On Tuesday, Business Insider reported:
What is unclear is if previous investigations into Foley’s whereabouts were inaccurate, if ISIS militants somehow captured Foley from some of the regime’s most elite security, or if the Assad regime provided Foley to ISIS.

“Until recently, James Foley was thought to be in hands of pro-Assad forces. If Assad is handing over Westerners to ISIS to be killed, it indicates Assad feels cornered, looking for leverage,” BBC’s Kim Ghattas tweeted, adding that the assessment jibes with what she has been told by sources in Damascus recently.
Foley’s execution has garnered expressions of horror from many political pundits who eagerly look to the president to act.

However, not all reactions have been ones of sympathy for Foley and his family. After denouncing Foley as a “coward” for bending to the terrorist demands before his execution, one blogger has quickly become one of the most deservingly hated men on twitter.

What Foley’s execution illustrates, aside from the obvious barbarism with which we are dealing, is that the criticism of the Obama Administration has been well-deserved. While it would be illogical to expect the Obama Administration to shield all Americans in the Middle East from the prospect of danger, it is purely undeniable that radical Islam is not only on the rise, but meaning business.

The president’s foreign policy is one of ad hoc, moment-to-moment panic that accomplishes little in a time when the advances gained at great costs by the U.S. are slowly being undone in the Middle East.

From Russia to Syria to Iraq, Iran and North Korea, this administration has continually weakened the position of the United States on the global stage and the public execution of Foley serves as a brutal, macabre reminder that we are dealing with a savage enemy while our president is contented with foreign policy that revolves around strongly-worded letters, whining to the U.N. and the drawing of imaginary red lines that are all but ignored.

AL-QAEDA IN YEMEN ANNOUNCES ‘SOLIDARITY’ WITH ‘OUR MUSLIM BROTHERS IN IRAQ’

“We announce solidarity with our Muslim brothers in Iraq against the crusade…”

By Patrick Goodenough

(CNSNews.com) – The world’s two most dangerous Islamic terror groups appear to be joining forces.
A statement purportedly by al-Qaeda’s Yemen-based branch — al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — expresses support for the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS/ISIL), the Yemen Times reported on Tuesday.

“We announce solidarity with our Muslim brothers in Iraq against the crusade. Their blood and injuries are ours and we will surely support them,” the newspaper quoted the AQAP statement as saying.

“We stand by the side of our Muslim brothers in Iraq against the American and Iranian conspiracy and their agents of the apostate Gulf rulers.”

The statement went on to offer ISIS fighters tips on how to avoid airstrikes, like those President Obama ordered against the jihadists in northern Iraq 12 days ago.

“Based on our experience with drones, we advise our brothers in Iraq to be cautious about spies among them because they are a key factor in setting goals; be cautious about dealing with cellphones and internet networks; do not gather in large numbers or move in large convoys; spread in farms or hide under trees in the case of loud humming of warplanes; and dig sophisticated trenches because they reduce the impact of shelling,” the statement said.

The U.S. considers AQAP the most active of the various al-Qaeda affiliates, and has long conducted a campaign of drone strikes against the group.

ISIS meanwhile has been viewed as a growing threat to the United States. Last January, ISIS leader Ibrahim al-Badri (aka Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi) warned the U.S. that the group would soon be “in direct confrontation” with America, and the threats have increased since the airstrikes began this month.

Wire services reported Monday on an ISIS video featuring a statement warning that it will attack Americans “in any place” and vowing, “we will drown all of you in blood.”

On Tuesday ISIS posted a video showing the beheading of an American journalist who went missing in Syria in 2012, and threatened to kill another U.S. journalist it holds captive, unless the airstrikes stop. It also warned Obama that his actions “will result in the bloodshed of your people.”

If authentic, an AQAP statement in support of ISIS would be significant since al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri publicly disavowed ISIS last year, after al-Badri made a bid for leadership of all al-Qaeda elements among the anti-Assad forces in Syria.

At the time the presumably Pakistan-based Zawahiri declared the al-Nusrah Front to be the only al-Qaeda affiliate engaged in the anti-Assad campaign, and instructed al-Badri to stick to Iraq. The order was ignored, and ISIS continued its violent operations in both Syria and Iraq.

Ever since ISIS last June declared a “caliphate” across areas in controls in both countries and called on Muslims everywhere to pledge loyalty to al-Badri – now calling himself “Caliph Ibrahim” – observers have been closely watching the response from al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups.

Al-Nusrah and other groups quickly rejected the caliphate declaration, as did some leading radical Sunni figures, including the Qatar-based cleric Yusef al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader. AQAP’s response has been awaited, as has one from Zawahiri himself.

Some experts have warned that as ISIS’ notoriety grows, al-Qaeda may seek to carry out a major terrorist attack to demonstrate its ongoing ability and relevance, with AQAP seen as the most likely affiliate to do so.

On Sunday, House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers gave a similar warning, and mentioned plotting in Yemen in particular.

AQAP attempted to bomb a Detroit-bound aircraft on Christmas Day 2009, but the would-be bomber was restrained after trying detonate explosives hidden in his underwear. In October 2010 the group failed in a bid to ship bombs to the U.S., hidden in packages on commercial cargo planes.

Mutual support

Yemen Times quoted a Yemeni strategic affairs specialist as saying some AQAP members were in Syria and Iraq, affiliated with ISIS, while some ISIS gunmen were training al-Qaeda fighters in Yemen.

Saeed Al-Jamhi said AQAP appeared to be divided over ISIS, with one faction supporting it and another not.

The faction supportive of ISIS, he said, was headed by Jalal Baleedi, an AQAP terrorist blamed for the abduction earlier this month of 14 Yemeni soldiers. Photos and video subsequently released showed some of the soldiers being beheaded.

Attorney-General Eric Holder voiced “extreme” concerns last month about a rising terror threat from Yemen, specifically intelligence that AQAP bomb makers were in Syria joining forces with jihadists there.

“That’s a deadly combination,” Holder said at the time, “where you have people who have the technical knowhow along with the people who have this kind of fervor to give their lives in support of a cause that is directed at the United States and directed at its allies. And it’s something that gives us really extreme, extreme concern.”

Al-Qaeda terrorists in Yemen and Saudi Arabia established AQAP in 2009 and the State Department designated the affiliate as a foreign terrorist organization early the following year.

According to data compiled by the non-partisan New America Foundation, as many as 96 militants have been killed in Yemen by U.S. drone strikes targeting AQAP this year alone.

A 2011 airstrike killed Yemeni-American cleric and AQAP propagandist Anwar al-Awlaki.

ISIS beheading: Militants ‘represent a direct threat’ to UK security says Foreign Sec.

Capture

Islamic State militants, who released a video allegedly showing the beheading of a US journalist, ‘represent a direct threat’ to UK security said Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. David Cameron has cut short his holiday to respond to the incident.

American photojournalist James Wright Foley went missing almost two years ago while covering the conflict in Syria as a freelance photographer. The militants proclaimed the violent act as “a message to America” for its decision to launch airstrikes against the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in Iraq.

Islamic State militants behead missing American journalist

In the grisly film, Foley appears kneeling beside a masked man who speaks with a British accent. Foley read a letter which blames the US government for “hammering the final nail into his coffin” before his beheading with a short blade.

A linguistics expert, Dr Claire Hardaker, who has studied the audio from the short film, told LBC Radio listeners she believes the killer is from London.

The Islamist group also threatened to kill another American journalist, Steven Joel Sotloff of World Affairs and Time, stating his life“depends on Obama’s next decision.” Sotloff has been missing since mid-2013, and his Twitter account indicates his last known location was Libya.

Capture
Hammond said intelligence agencies were trying to unmask the fluent English-speaking militant. Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command, SO15, also launched an investigation into the video.

“We would like to remind the public that viewing, downloading or disseminating extremist material within the UK may constitute an offence under Terrorism legislation,” the specialist operations unit said in a statement.

Leading figures in the counter-terrorism field said it would be possible for intelligence services to identify the militant, despite it being filmed in an unknown location with the fighter dressed head to toe in black.

Many of the British fighters in Syria and Iraq had left criminal pasts in the UK so were likely to be known to police. Intelligence agencies would also be using linguistics technology to track down the man.

Meanwhile, leading terrorism experts warned that the video was a highly orchestrated recruitment tool to lure “psychopathic individuals” to fight alongside Isis militants in Syria andIraq.

Hammond said further analysis of the footage was needed, but said he believes it is genuine. “We’re absolutely aware that there are significant numbers of British nationals involved in terrible crimes, probably in the commission of atrocities, making jihad with Isil [now known as IS] and other extremist organizations,” he said.

“We haven’t absolutely verified the video yet, but all the hallmarks point to it being genuine – an appalling example of the brutality of this organisation.”

“This is a poison, a cancer, what’s going on in Iraq and Syria, and it risks spreading to other parts of the international community and affecting us all directly.”

“We have policies aimed at deterring people at risk of radicalisation from being radicalised and going out to Iraq and Syria,” Hammond added.

It is estimated that the Islamic State, which has seized large parts of northern Iraq and Syria, has up to 400 recruits from the UK in its ranks. Some 69 people suspected of Syria-related jihadist activities have now been arrested in the UK.

Hammond said the involvement of British nationals with extremist groups was one of the reasons that the IS “represents such a direct threat” to the UK’s security. “Many of these people may seek at some point to return to the UK and they would then pose a direct threat to our domestic security.”

Hammond provoked confusion among some listeners when he used the term ‘moderate jihadist’ while speaking on BBC Radio 4. The term suggests there are various extremes of violent radical Islam, rather than condemning all jihadists equally.

“The emergence of ISIL [IS] as a successor organization to AQ [Al-Qaeda] with an absolutely poisonous ideology, hoovering up moderate jihadist, if you can have such a thing as moderate jihadist, activity in Syria, drawing support from the more moderate Syrian opposition is a major challenge primarily to region but also to West,” said Hammond.

“Partly because they are trying to establish a caliphate from which they would launch attacks against the West, and partly because they have amongst their number significant elements of Western fighters.”

Meanwhile, returning from holiday, David Cameron said on Twitter: “If true, the murder of James Foley is shocking and depraved. I will today chair meetings on the situation in Iraq/Syria.”

In a statement, Number 10 said: “The prime minister is returning to Downing St. this morning. He will meet with the foreign secretary and senior officials from the Home Office, Foreign Office and the agencies to discuss the situation in Iraq and Syria and the threat posed by Isil [now known as IS] terrorists.”

Over the weekend, the PM wrote in The Sunday Times that if the UK didn’t act to stem the onslaught of the “exceptionally dangerous terrorist movement,” it could grow strong enough to target Britain. “We already know that it has the murderous intent,” he said.

The UK’s involvement in the crisis has been limited so far to delivering air drops of aid to stranded refugees and surveillance flights of Tornado jets and Rivet Joint SIGINT aircraft over battle zones. London is reportedly mulling joining the US and France in delivering arms directly to the Kurds.

Cameron said a “humanitarian response is not enough” and a “firm security response” was needed to ensure “a long-term plan for our security.”

ISIS APPEARS TO BEHEAD AMERICAN PHOTOJOURNALIST IN YOUTUBE VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 7.46.30 PM

Propaganda video was removed from YouTube after more than 20 minutes

by JESSICA TESTA | BUZZFEED | AUGUST 19, 2014

The video, uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday, includes about a minute and a half of President Obama announcing his recent authorization of targeted airstrikes and a humanitarian operation in Iraq.

Around the two minute mark, a man believed to be James Wright Foley, 40, delivers a statement: “I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers: the U.S. government.” He then addresses his brother John, a member of the U.S. Air Force, at length. After about two minutes and 20 seconds, he is beheaded.

Two people who know Foley said the man in the video appears to be him, and that the voice sounds like his. His family did not respond immediately to an inquiry about the video.

Foley, a freelance photojournalist, and his translater were kidnapped in Binesh, Syria, in Novermber 2012. According to the FBI, his translator was later released.

The propaganda video was removed from YouTube after more than 20 minutes.

Hamas said it fired 40 rockets at Israel. Among them, two hit open areas in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, four more in open areas in the Eshkol Regional Council, and five hit open areas in the Be’er Sheva area.

At least one was intercepted over central Israel and another fell in an open area. Two more were intercepted over Sderot, two intercepted over Be’er Sheva, two shot down over Kiryat Malachi, three were intercepted over Ashkelon.

Hamas’ armed wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, claimed responsibility for the fire at central Israel, saying they fired M-75 and Fajr-5 missiles at the Tel Aviv area and a J-80 rocket towards Ben Gurion International Airport.

The latest ceasefire, that was set to expire on midnight, was broken some 8 hours earlier when three Grad rockets fired from the Gaza Strip fell near Be’er Sheva and Netivot on Tuesday afternoon. The IDF responded by hitting different targets in the Gaza Strip.

Rockets fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel

The latest ceasefire, that was set to expire on midnight, was broken some 8 hours earlier when three Grad rockets fired from the Gaza Strip fell near Be’er Sheva and Netivot on Tuesday afternoon. The IDF responded by hitting different targets in the Gaza Strip.

Later, rockets were fired at Netivot and the Sdot Negev Regional Council. Two of the rockets were intercepted over Netivot while one fell in an open area in Sdot Negev. After 8pm, rockets were fired at Ashdod and Hof Ashkelon, both falling in open areas.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a spokesman for Hamas, the dominant movement in the Gaza Strip, said it had no knowledge of any rockets being fired.

Even before the rocket fire, the Associated Press quoted Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum, who hinted of more rocket fire, saying: “If Netanyahu doesn’t understand … the language of politics in Cairo, we know how to make him understand.”

The rocket attack came hours before a ceasefire deal was exepcted to be signed in Cairo, but in wake of the attack Israel decided to recall its delegation, which was still in Egypt holding indirect talks with Hamas when rockets began to fall. The move seems to indicate that attempts at reaching a deal have collapsed. Palestinians for their part claim the IDF targeted Gaza before the rocket fire.

The rockets fell in open areas between Netivot and Be’er Sheva in the south and no injuries or damage were reported. This was the second time rockets were fired at Israel since a five-day ceasefire came into effect last Thursday. At the time, the IDF said Gaza militants had breached the truce by firing eight rockets at Israel shortly after midnight Thursday.

Local residents in Gaza said they saw militants attempt to fire rockets, and afterwards Israelis living near northern Gaza and the Be’er Sheva region said they heard a number of blasts.

While Palestinian sources expressed optimism that the fighting would not resume at midnight, Israeli officials continued to emphasize that the IDF was prepared to resume its operations.

“We are prepared for every scenario. The IDF has made arrangements for a forceful response if the fighting resumes. In the Middle East you need a combination of force and resilience. The IDF has the necessary force, and the ‘eternal people’ have proved they are not afraid of a winding road,” said Netanyahu earlier Monday night.

He emphasized: “The combination of perseverance and fortitude will help us reach the aim of the operation – security and safety for all Israelis.”

Shaky ceasefire
Last Thursday, in response to the breach in the ceasefire, Israeli fighter planes targeted “rocket launchers and terror sites” across the enclave later Thursday. No casualties were reported and hostilities died down by dawn Friday.

The second extension of the ceasefire, at the time for five days rather than three, has raised hopes that a longer-term resolution to the conflict can be found, although the way ahead remains fraught with difficulty.

A senior Hamas official who returned to Gaza from the negotiations in Cairo said they had been tough but expressed some optimism.

“There is still a real chance to clinch an agreement,” Khalil al-Hayya told reporters, saying that it depended on Israel not “playing with language to void our demands”.

“The Egyptian mediators are entering a good effort and we wish them success in this negotiation battle.”

After more than a month of intense conflict, which killed over 2,000 Palestinians, many of them civilians, as well as 64 Israeli soldiers and three civilians in Israel, there is little appetite on either side for a resumption of bloodshed.

Hamas and its allies want an end to the Israeli and Egyptian blockade on Gaza. But Israel and Egypt harbour deep security concerns about Hamas, the dominant Islamist group in the small, Mediterranean coastal enclave, complicating any deal on easing border restrictions.

15% OF FRENCH PEOPLE BACK ISIS MILITANTS, POLL FINDS

Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 6.55.41 PM

Largest percentage of those blaming instability in Iraq on military intervention

Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 6.57.09 PM

Up to 15 percent of French people said they have a positive attitude toward the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The share of ISIS supporters is largest among France’s younger generation, a new poll says.

Twice as many French people expressed a positive reaction to Islamic State (IS) militants than in Britain, where the number of people favorably disposed to the IS stands at 7 percent, and Germany, where a meager 2 percent of the respondents sided with the IS, according to a poll carried out in July among 1,000 people aged over 15 years (over 18 in Britain) in each country. The poll was conducted by ICM Research for the Russian news agency Rossiya Segodnya.

The Islamic State is a jihadist group, widely regarded as a terrorist organization and designated as such by the US, the UK, Saudi Arabia and several other countries.

It aspires to bring much of the Muslim-inhabited regions of the world under its direct political control, beginning with territory in the Levant region, which includes Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Cyprus, and southern Turkey. In the past few months, IS militants have seized a number of towns in Iraq and Syria.

In France, the share of IS supporters is the largest among people aged between 18 and 24, and it is the smallest among those aged over 45. The largest share of IS opponents is composed of people aged 45 to 54.

“This is not a result of sympathy of a significant number of French people for this extremist terrorist organization,” Yury Rubinsky, the head of the Center of French Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told Rossiya Segodnya. “This is simply a manifestation of the country’s accumulated potential rejection of the existing system as a whole. This is a form of rejection of the elites, a form of protest.”

The French government said in late July it was ready to welcome Christians fleeing the area of Iraq controlled by IS fighters, saying it was “outraged” by their persecution.

“France is outraged by these abuses, which it condemns with the utmost firmness,” Laurent Fabius, France’s foreign minister, and Bernard Cazeneuve, the interior minister, said in a joint statement. “We are providing aid to displaced people fleeing from the threats of Islamic state and who have sought refuge in Kurdistan.”

In Britain, the only two-digit number of IS supporters – 11 percent – is to be found among people aged between 35 and 44, and in Germany among young people of 16 and 17 years old – 10 percent, the same poll found. No Germans between 55 and 64 years old back the IS and an overwhelming majority of German people in this age group denounce it. In Britain, the largest number of IS opponents – 70 percent – is to be found among seniors over 65.

Among the three countries, France, whose population numbers 68 million people, has the largest Muslim community (7.5 percent), whereas the UK’s Muslim population is 5 percent and that of Germany is 4.6 percent, according to a Pew Research study published in January 2011.

Earlier this year the British press cited Birmingham MP Khalid Mahmood as saying that at least 1,500 British nationals are likely to have been recruited by IS extremists to fight in Iraq and Syria. Then-Foreign Secretary William Hague earlier this year claimed that around 400 young British nationals have gone to the Middle East to join the fighting.

Through the same ICM research poll, respondents were asked which of the statements is closer to their viewpoint, that instability in Iraq is a result of the military intervention in that country, or that it is a result of Iraq’s political development. Around one-third named the military intervention as the main factor of instability, while 41 percent of French, 47 percent of British and 59 percent of German people said it was a result of national politics.

The largest percentage of those blaming the instability in Iraq on the military intervention is to be found among French people aged between 18 and 24, and the smallest percentage among Germany’s youngest generation. The other variant, that instability stems from national politics, was least popular among French people aged 18 to 24, where 25 percent of the respondents chose it, and most popular with Germany’s teens, of whom 66 percent chose that option.

Guess what the most popular boy’s name is in England right now:

Is it Islamophobic to mention “Muhammad” is now the most popular name in Britain?

Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 3.23.42 PM

Written by Allen West on August 18, 2014

The military teaches commanders to look at not only what is obvious, but to anticipate second and third order effects based on indicators and warnings. So on the surface, the fact that Breitbart has reported that Muhammad is the most popular boy’s name in Britain will cause most Islamist apologists’ heads to explode as they cry “Islamophobia,” because what should it matter? But it does.

As exclusively reported by Breitbart London last week, “Muhammed has been crowned Britain’s most popular boys name in figures published by the Office of National Statistics (ONS) today. The name beat Oliver as the most popular boy’s name chosen by parents in Britain in 2013. As a result of the way the statistics are put together, the name does not appear to have won, as the ONS classifies each of the different spellings as a different entry on the list. This means that “Muhammad” came in 15th with 3,499 children but “Mohammed” was 23rd with 2,887 and “Mohammad” was 57th with 1059 given the name. Added together, the top three spellings alone accounted for the names of 7,445 boys, easily beating the second most popular name, Oliver, which got just 6,949. Also the statistics are only published for the top 100 names, so the even more obscure spellings of Mohammed are likely to push the total even higher.”

The real issue to consider is the demographic shift occurring not just in London, England, but across Europe overall. As a matter of fact, this was very well examined in Mark Steyn’s book, America Alone. This migration phenomenon is based on a tradition of Mohammed known as Al Hijra. It occured when the first phase of Islam ended and the second began after Mohammad was ridiculed and rejected, because the populace in Mecca did not believe in his “night ride” to Jerusalem — which had many similarities to Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem. As a result, Mohammed joined fled Mecca to Medina and there joined violent raiding gangs as the theme of the verses in the Koran took a more violent turn.

But this idea of Hijra came to mean migration in order to further the spread of Islam — which is what Britain and Europe is experiencing. There are neighborhoods in London where regular police officers don’t even venture. These neighborhoods are under sharia law governance – which should be antithetical to English law.

And this phenomenon is evident in the massive anti-Israel protests we’ve recently witnessed which have a political effect as well. As we reported here, more Britons are signing up to fight in Syria and Iraq with ISIS than are joining the British Army Reserve. And it returns to cause unimaginable violence at home, as with the savage massacre of British soldier, Lee Rigby.

Back to Breitbart’s report, as a means of comparative analysis, “Muhammad was No. 61 on the ONS list in 2002. The number of Muslims in Britain has doubled since then. The choice of Muhammad is widespread among the three million Muslims who live in Britain Many of them name at least one son a variance of the name” — the question is how many sons are they having? (And if it’s anything like the Tsarnaev brothers here in the U.S I wonder how many are living on government assistance?)

After all, it was the late Libyan President Muammar al-Gaddafi who is said to have predicted, “There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe without swords, without guns, without conquest. We don’t need terrorists, we don’t need homicide bombs. The 50-plus million Muslims in Europe will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades.”

If the popularity of the name Mohammad in England is any harbinger, his prediction may unfortunately be coming to fruition, with the demise of western civilization, its the long-intended goal.
