Washington DC: 150 Attend Anti-Jihad Event

by Jeffrey ImmAnti-Jihad League of America
On Wednesday night, February 11, over 150 Washington DC area residents attended the premiere screening of the film "Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around U.S." at a Washington DC theater. The film screening was sponsored by the Christian Action Network that co-produced the film along with PRB films, directed by Christian Action Network president Martin Mawyer. The film documents the activities of the Jamaat ul-Fuqra organization and its front organization "Muslims of America," led by Pakistani Islamic cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, and their 35 camps around the United States. The documentary references a 2006 Regional Organized Crime Information Center report that states that Ali Gilani is "known as an international terrorist" and that Jamaat ul-Fuqra has "more than 3,000 members spread across the United States, all in support of one goal: the purification of Islam through violence."
"Homegrown Jihad" Documentary Trailer
U.S. Officials See No Imminent Threat From Groups

CBS News has obtained a copy [oh wow, that makes it sound like it's a cloak and dagger operation . . . just go to, and you can get your own copy] of the trailer to the documentary "Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S." The film was produced by PRB films, in association with The Christian Action Network.

. . . Officials describe the film to CBS News as "sensationalistic" and without any real foundation. According to one official, it is strictly designed to upset and inflame people and does not present a true picture of any so-called “homegrown Jihad” danger. No current intelligence exists to suggest any threat connected with this group, which officials describe as “wannabes” and not terrorists.

The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI are aware of the movie and have no plans at this time to issue any new alerts or bulletins.\02\12\story_12-2-2009_pg1_9
Pakistan wants more from US
WP report says Gilani emphasised the need to ‘expedite’ new US aid package after meeting with Holbrooke

Pakistan warned US special envoy Richard Holbrooke on Tuesday it expected more from the United States in return for its cooperation against Al Qaeda and the Taliban, a Washington Post report says.

Statements issued by President Asif Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, after meeting with the envoy, emphasised the need to ‘expedite’ a new US aid package, and “the importance of enhanced cooperation in defence and intelligence sharing”. Holbrooke only said that he was there “to listen and learn the ground realities”

In Washington, US officials said that while a revised strategy would acknowledge Pakistan’s crucial role, developing a new relationship was likely to be a long process.
Global link in Mumbai attack, Pak gives details
From Italy, Spain, and an unnamed Middle East country, to US and Russia, the plotters of the Mumbai terror attack tapped local resources including dollar payment transfers and registering internet domain names in a sinister global plan to numb India's financial capital that left 183 persons dead.
Jury being chosen for Fla. terror trial
Jurors are being selected in Miami for the third trial of 6 men accused of plotting to destroy Chicago's Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys are making final choices for the 12-person panel Wednesday. They began interviewing prospective panelists Jan. 27 but the ethnic makeup of the panel has been contentious because all six defendants are black.

Two previous trials of the "Liberty City Six" have ended in mistrials, with a seventh man acquitted after the first trial. Prosecutors say they sought to ignite an anti-government war by staging major terror attacks.
Sudbury man pleads innocent to lying in terror case
A Massachusetts man has pleaded not guilty to charges he lied to federal authorities about the whereabouts of a man later convicted of training at an al-Qaida terrorist camp in Somalia.
NY terrorist was targeted for assassination
A Black September terrorist who planted car bombs in New York City is set to be released from prison soon. It's now been learned that that he narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in 1980.

The Associated Press has learned that someone tried to blow up Khalid Al-Jawary's (Kuh-LID' Al-Juh-WAH-reez) Italian sedan in Beirut. Two of his aids were injured.

The 63-year-old Al-Jawary was convicted in 1993 of placing two bomb-rigged cars on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and a third at JFK's El-Al cargo terminal.

And so now we know that Black September isn't just a black-rights group, but an Islamic terrorist group ---DOB
Egypt: Secretary of State Clinton to attend Gaza donors meet in Cairo
A senior Egyptian official says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will attend an international donors conference in Cairo next month to raise money to help rebuild Gaza after Israel's recent military operations against Palestinian militants there.

Why doesn't this writer just come right out and say: ". . . recent atrocious totally-uncalled-for, over-the-top operations . . ."? Prez BHO is certainly indicating that by sending Clinton the wrong side first, rather than have her work w/the Israelis, who are already aiding the Gazans.---DOB
A headteacher was forced to quit after just four parents complained about her plans to scrap Muslim-only assemblies.

Julia Robinson wanted to reintroduce integrated assemblies for her 240 junior school pupils, including 35 Muslims.

After pressure from a small number of parents, a previous head had agreed to separate assemblies for the school's Muslim children.

. . . Sonia Sharp, Sheffield's executive director of children's services, said: "It was not that she felt the separate meetings were a bad thing - but she wanted more community spirit and felt that the work going on in the gatherings could be brought into a wider arena. There was a difference of opinion and in the process, relationships broke down."

Her mistake was in thinking the Muslims actually want community spirit. They don't.---DOB
