Shayka Ayman Al Zawahiri
Al-Qaeda Leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri: “It is absolutely out of the question that the US will defeat the spirit of Jihad in the Islamic nation – the same spirit that defeated the US in the battlefield, as well as in the war of ideas. In the battlefield, the US was defeated and withdrew from Iraq, under the pressure of the strikes of the mujahideen … These are the mujahideen upon whom Allah has bestowed the honor of shattering America’s plan to take over the Middle East… In Afghanistan, the US has begun its withdrawal, leaving its collaborators to the fate of their predecessors in Vietnam and Iran. In the Arab countries, the US-proxy regimes have fallen one after the other, and the US is out of breath, trying to contain the volcano of Arab rage. It is encouraging that these regimes have begun to collapse prior to the American withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq, whereas the Soviet-backed regimes of the Warsaw Pact started to collapse only after the Russian withdrawal from Afghanistan. This indicates that the US is in a state of extreme weakness, which may even exceed that of the USSR in its final days. Hence, the change to come will be even greater …
The strength of Al-Qaeda does not lie in its numbers or in its equipment, which cannot be compared to those of the Western empire of evil. The strength of Al-Qaeda lies in its message to the Islamic nation and to the oppressed in this world. The message is: Rise against the global order of injustice, against international arrogance, and against worldwide theft. Rise against the polytheist [Christian] regime, which worships materialism, power, interests, and pleasure. Rise against the international Satanic legitimacy, which supports the oppressor rather than the oppressed, the slayer rather than the slain, and the thief rather than his victim.” Full Report.
Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Shaikh
Washington Free Beacon…
Saudi Arabia’s top Muslim leader recently issued a religious decree calling for all Christian churches on the Arabian peninsula to be demolished, a move that elicited protests from the U.S. government and undermines recent efforts in the kingdom to promote interfaith tolerance.
Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Shaikh issued the fatwa, or Muslim religious decree, on March 11, although government-controlled media in the country so far have not reported it.

“Why is it that when Abdulaziz ibn Abdullah Al al-Sheikh, the grand mufti of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, declares that it is ‘necessary to destroy all the churches in the Arabian Peninsula,’ the major media do not see this as even worth reporting?”asks Middle East expert Cliff May in a story I’d encourage you to read and share with others. “And no one, to the best of my knowledge, has noted that he said this to the members of a terrorist group. Here are the facts: Some members of the Kuwaiti parliament have been seeking to demolish churches or at least prohibit the construction of new ones within that country’s borders. So the question arose: What does sharia, Islamic law, have to say about this issue?
Tahrir Square, Egypt 2011
New York Times…
CAIRO — The Islamist party that leads the new Egyptian Parliament is threatening to review the 1979 peace treaty with Israel if the United States cuts off aid to the country over a crackdown on American-backed nonprofit groups here.
The pact is considered a linchpin of regional stability, and the statements, from at least two senior leaders of the party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, represent the first time that Egyptians have explicitly raised it during an escalating standoff over the crackdown.
New statistics on crimes against women in Pakistan highlight the growing scale of violence suffered by women. (File photo)
At least 943 Pakistani women and girls were murdered last year for allegedly defaming their family’s honor, the country’s leading human rights group said Thursday.
The statistics highlight the growing scale of violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens and there is no law against domestic violence.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, an influential group holding half of the seats in the new parliament, may field a candidate for the May presidential election. The move would break an earlier promise not to seek presidential power.
The movement said it would not contend for Egypt’s highest office as part of power-sharing agreements among the country’s leading powers. It was meant to alleviate fears among domestic liberals and the military, as well as Western allies, that the country would fall too much under Islamist control.
Last Friday, yet another devout Muslim, Amine El Khalifi, was arrested wearing a vest full of explosives before he could blow up the U.S. Capitol building. The thwarted homicide bombing marked at least the 45th publicly known attempted Islamic terrorist attack against the United States since 9/11, and it is the sixth such attack targeting Washington, D.C.
That is news. But was that the focus of news coverage in the following days? No, it was barely even mentioned by an enemedia that increasingly shows itself to be aligned with the jihad force. Instead of stories about this attempted jihad terror attack, the mainstream media were full of reports about how the New York Police Department had been monitoring members of the Muslim Students Association, a Muslim Brotherhood group.
The vicious media swarm about the monitoring of the MSA was another attack upon the very counterterrorism tools that are keeping us safe.

Asia Bibi’s tale has been a long and tragic one. The Pakistani woman has been detained for nearly three years after being charged with blasphemy for allegedly disparaging the name of the Prophet Mohammed. The penalty for talking negatively about Islam’s leader? Death.
Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan
From The Chicago Tribune…
In a fiery lecture to thousands of followers of the Nation of Islam on Sunday in Chicago, Minister Louis Farrakhan warned that racial hatred could lead to attempts to assassinate President Barack Obama.
Farrakhan spent much of his oration decrying what he cast as Satan’s influence over racist forces in politics and society before asking a pointed rhetorical question: “Do you think they’re wicked enough to be plotting our brother’s assassination as we speak?”
