Stars and StripesBy JOBY WARRICK AND SOUAD MEKHENNET His self-declared caliphate was in ruins when Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi summoned some of his top aides to a meeting in eastern Syria last year. The Islamic State's capital in Iraq had already fallen, and its Syrian headquarters was under siege.Yet the terrorist leader had something else on his mind: schoolchildren.The gathering near the city of Deir al-Zour was called by Baghdadi personally to discuss rewriting the terrorist group's educational curriculum, according to an Islamic State official who was arrested in a joint operation by Turkish and Iraqi officials earlier this year. Despite the group's dire circumstances, Baghdadi wanted to examine a subject that had less to do with immediate survival than with preserving the organization's ideological core."Several top leaders were present, as well as the curricula committee, which I headed," the captured officer, known as Abu Zaid al-Iraqi, said in a videotaped...
The Local se The man was involved in a people-smuggling ring and sent profits to fund terrorism in Syria, according to the Dagens Nyheter (DN) newspaper.  The suspect, who is reportedly in his mid-forties, has lived in Sweden with his family since 2012 and was arrested in Denmark at the Kastrup airport.  He worked for the network from his apartment in Finspång, to the south east of Sweden.

In 2017, police found 700,000 kronor in cash on him and his brother during a...

Jihadi Cult Member Files to Run for Congress

Posted by on in Terrorism
Clarion Project A member of Muslims of the Americas (MOA), an Islamist hate group that cultishly follows a jihadist cleric in Pakistan, is running for Congress in Alaska. He is the second member of MOA to announce a congressional run this year, following Tahirah Amatul-Wadud in Massachusetts.   In 2016, Gregory “Shoaib” Jones was a delegate for Senator Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention and ran for the Alaska state House in District 8. His deep involvement with MOA was exposed by the Clarion Project at the time, triggering a statewide controversy.   Now, Jones is running for Congress and styling himself as a progressive interfaith leader. If Jones wins the Democratic primary for the at-large congressional district, he will face Republican Rep. Don Young in the general election.   The group that Greg Jones belongs to is led by a terror-linked cleric in Pakistan named Sheikh Mubarak Ali...
Jihad Watch By Christine Douglass-Williams Despite Sweden’s harebrained open-door immigration policy, just yesterday, Jihad Watch reported that the United Nations criticized Sweden as a “racist inferno where immigrants face painful racism.”Now comes word that:    Police in the Swedish municipality of Karlskrona are expected to grant the local Islamic association the right to broadcast the call to prayer in public and are refusing to consult local residents on the decision because it would be too much hard work.The mainstream Islamic Cultural Association in Karlskrona is pushing for the loud broadcast.“Local Church of Sweden Archbishop Fredrik Modeus who called it a ‘well thought-out decision’ and once compared the Muslim call to prayer to church bells.” This misguided man, like so many, does not know that in Islamic law:    dhimmis are “forbidden to openly display wine or pork…to ring church bells or display crosses…recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display...
