Quick News Overviews

We will not hear about these events on the U.S. MSM. Why do they ignore these events? I really do not know why some issues are ignored; however, here are some high points for this morning.

First, the Obama Interfaith advisor has openly stated that she is in support of global sharia law. He picked her!

Second, representative Peter King (R-IA) is talking about the threat of infiltration from within the United States.

Third, another round of rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israeli neighborhoods. This happens just after Obama had added then removed Israel from the list of terrorism supporters.

Fourth, we never are told when the UN does something. There is a summer camp in GAZA (if that location sounds familiar, refer back to the launching of the rockets FROM GAZA) being run by the UN and protected, apparently, by Noah Body.

 

Dalia Mogahed, appointed to President Obama’s faith advisory council, was a partner in an Islamic project whose stated goal was to define, interpret and implement the concept of the Islamic State in modern times. During an interview with a female member of Hizb-ul Tahrir, Mogahed defended and supported HT’s fundamentalist view of a global caliphate. Mogahed has Obama’s ear on ALL THINGS ISLAMIC in relation to Islamic communities within the United States.

In the opposite corner is Iowa representative Peter King who has paid attention to the barely publicized Somali muslims in the Midwest who have radicalized and sent 40 people to Somalia to fight with al Qaida affiliate al Shabaab.

""Our investigation into this threat has led to alarming findings: Notably, that al-Shabab has successfully recruited and radicalized more than 40 Muslim-Americans and 20 Canadians, who have joined the terror group inside Somalia,” according to prepared remarks released by King's office before the hearing."

Sheva is hearing what Representative King (IA-R) is saying. This is what a few people have known for some time. Most of whom live in the area near the Somali enclaves in the U.S.

The Al-Shabab in Somalia has already achieved notoriety for blocking relief efforts to famine stricken residents because the aid originates in the Christian West.
Today it received more publicity as Representative Peter King (R-NY), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, began his hearings on Muslim radicalization by revealing that more than 40 Americans have been recruited to join the Islamic terror network in Somalia.
"Our investigation into this threat has led to alarming findings: Notably, that al-Shabab has successfully recruited and radicalized more than 40 Muslim-Americans and 20 Canadians, who have joined the terror group inside Somalia,” according to prepared remarks released by King's office before the hearing.
“Of those, at least 15 Americans and three Canadians are believed to have been killed fighting with al-Shabab, the Committee has learned. Not Al Qaeda, nor any of its other affiliates, have come close to drawing so many Muslim-Americans and Westerners to jihad.”

Behind these statements lies the ominous fact that these recruits are familiar with the United States and are willing to be martyrs, so they pose a threat to American security and have to be taken seriously.
According to ABC News, Osama bin Laden, prior to his death, was banking on al-Shabab precisely because of this factor. King concurred in an interview with the station that "These are Americans. These are people who have passports, they know the United States, they understand the United States, they know our weak points, they know where they can probe and thrust."
King has been criticized by liberals for focusing on Muslim terrorism when he should also be exploring other threats, such as the extreme right. The New York Times published an op-ed that drew attention to the fact that the Norwegian killer Anders Breivik had approvingly cited the King hearings as a source of inspiration (he also cited John Locke, Edmund Burke and Vladimir Putin, among others). King dismissed the New York Times editorial board as "vacuous ideologues".
King accused the Times of intellectual dishonesty for failing to realize that "there is no equivalency in the threat to our homeland from a deranged gunman and the international terror apparatus of al Qaeda and its affiliates, who are recruiting people in this country and have murdered thousands of Americans in their jihad attacks."

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune  (Hat tip Cliff):
A 20-year-old man told police he was hoping for prison or deportation after he threatened to blow up a downtown Minneapolis bank and then waited to be arrested, according to a criminal complaint.
Hassan M. Farah, of Minneapolis, was charged Monday in Hennepin County District Court with second-degree aggravated robbery in the holdup Friday of the Wells Fargo branch at 8th Street and Park Avenue. He remains jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail.
Farah gave a teller a note that demanded $33,000 and a threat to “blow the bank right away,” according to the complaint. After being given $1,805, Farah sat in a chair in the lobby, the complaint said.
Farah told police he robbed the bank and was hoping to be imprisoned or deported to Somalia, the charges read. He was unarmed.

Terrorists fired a Kassam rocket from the Gaza region at southern Israel early Thursday morning.
The rocket landed in an open area south of the city of Ashkelon. There were no physical injuries or damage. The "red alert" siren was heard in the area just before the rocket fell.
This is the first rocket that has been launched at Israel since last week. Last Tuesday evening, a Kassam rocket fired from the Gaza region landed in an open area in the Sdot Negev Regional Council. There were no injuries or damage.
In response, an IAF aircraft targeted a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip and scored a direct hit against it, the IDF Spokesperson said in a statement.
“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will respond with determination to any attempt to use terror against the State of Israel,” said the IDF Spokesperson’s statement. “The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.”
In the past few weeks, there has been a ‘quiet war’ in Gaza, with terrorists firing rockets at southern Israel nearly every day and the IDF responding by attacking terror targets in the Strip.



How is it that ten people can just walk into a camp area like this? Seriously, this is a summer camp for children and it is not secured or protected by the UN? Well, a statement was written and issued condemning the attack. Plans are still going forward for the UN to hold the world’s largest gathering of kite flying for kids. This time it was vandals. What about bombers, kidnappers, or others of that ilk?

[Ma'an] GAZA -  Vandals attack UNRWA summer camp in Gaza
"Ten men entered the camp shortly after midnight, when they burnt a UN flag, damaged a large billboard, and torched part of the camp stage. None of the UN security personnel at the venue were harmed, UNRWA said."

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A summer camp facility in north-west Gaza run by the Palestinian refugee agency was vandalized by unknown assailants at dawn Thursday, UNRWA said in a statement.

Ten men entered the camp shortly after midnight, when they burnt a UN flag, damaged a large billboard, and torched part of the camp stage. None of the UN security personnel at the venue were harmed, UNRWA said.

In a statement condemning the attack, UNRWA Spokesman Chris Gunness said the agency would repair the damage and go ahead with a world record breaking attempt for the largest number of children flying kites, planned for 6 p.m. the same day.

The arson "is an attack on the children of Gaza as much as on the United Nations," Gunness said.

"We call on the authorities in Gaza to investigate and bring those responsible to account."

At dawn on Wednesday, a group of 30 armed and masked men burned the Rais resort in Gaza and threatened employees.

In the summer of 2010, two UNRWA summer camps were torched on separate occasions.

Camp organizers say the UNRWA Summer Games is the largest recreational program in Gaza, putting on games and contests for an estimated quarter of a million children.
