YouTube & Muslims Against Crusades – another match made in hell

A friend alerted me to a fantastic article that continues to connect the violent jihadi movement to YouTube.  (H/T Andrea.)  The article is very thorough, and details how the terrorists use YouTube to spread their cult of violence and what types of groups are using it.  This nugget, to me, was extremely interesting…

From MEMRI via Tolerant No More ~ Counter Jihad Knights:

 

November 2011: MAC Banned In U.K., MAC Website and Twitter Accounts Are Shut Down – But MAC YouTube Channels Continues

On November 9, 2011, the U.K. Home Office banned MAC; membership, holding meetings, or wearing clothing or “articles” to show support for the organization are now criminal offenses punishable by up to 10 years in jail. The official announcement of the ban, on the Home Office website, read: “Terror organisation proscribed: The Home Secretary Theresa May today laid an Order proscribing Muslims Against Crusades effective from midnight tonight. She said: ‘I have today laid an Order which will proscribe Muslims Against Crusades from midnight tonight. This means being a member of or supporting the organisation will be a criminal offence. I am satisfied Muslims Against Crusades is simply another name for an organisation already proscribed under a number of names including Al Ghurabaa, The Saved Sect, Al Muhajiroun and Islam4UK. The organisation was proscribed in 2006 for glorifying terrorism and we are clear it should not be able to continue these activities by simply changing its name. “

Following this official announcement, the MAC’s website and Twitter account were shut down. However, the MAC YouTube page (youtube.com/user/MACrusaders) as well as the YouTube page of its leader Anjem Choudary (youtube.com/user/anjemchoudary) remain active.(emphasis mine)

Now how is it that Twitter can act so quickly to shut down the terrorists, but Google/YouTube just pussyfoots around the subject? Maybe Twitter needs to teach the folks over at Google/YouTube a thing or two.

I’m also curious as to where MAC’s website was hosted.  Surely not Blogger or it would most likely still be around as well.  According to the Jawa Report, it was hosted in Canada – we may all Stable Hand & the Jawa Report readers to thank for the fact that MAC’s site is no longer there rather than the U.K.’s Home Office.  But who’s keeping score?

Infiltrate this!

The morons over at  Shura al Mujahideen fee Junubu Afarika (South Africa) are all a-twitter over their “brother” Jose’s arrest on terrorism charges and the implications it might — and should — have for muslims “speaking the truth” on social networking forums.  Of course the well-documented transgressions committed by poor ol’ Jose are all false.   *insert ginormous eye roll here.*  Of COURSE they are always innocent!  LOL!

As a result they are looking to “infiltrate” and “keep an eye on” anyone who is countering their BS – specifically mentioning Internet Hagannah and Operation YouTube Smackdown.

When they gather information on the supporters of the mujahideen, be it about their youtube channels and friends, blogger profiles and blogs or their facebook accounts, they share it among themselves by posting it on their forum (forum.internet-haganah.com). If any brother or sister is to come across this, make sure that you inform those who are being spied on so they may delete their accounts and start up new ones or at least so they may be more cautious.

Oh nooooooes!  They are gonna watch us!  Run for the hills!  Hey boneheads – if we didn’t want you to see it, you wouldn’t know it was there — just sayin’!

Funny that they are all worried about the implications of the arrest.  Probably because they are guilty of promoting terrorism at their site as well.  And who do you think helps them out?  Yep!  You got it!  Google/YouTube.  Their blog is on Blogger — the free Google blogsite.

And their videos, linked and embedded at their Blogger site are hosted, of course, at YouTube.  Here’s a connect-the-dots series of screen caps so you can see for yourself.  Clicking this link on their sidebar:

Will take you here:

Not surprisingly, it’s a video hosted at none other that YouTube.

And yes – you can see on the statistics for the video that it was unloaded on 11/26/11 and embedded on 11/28/11.

You can also see the search topics by which people using YouTube found the video — which means that presumably YouTube/Google should be able to use their own search filters to find it as well.  And if they were truly serious about removing terrorist videos from YouTube, they would.  The hypocrisy is stunning! Google really needs to change their slogan.

Pimentel, “Jihad Princess”, Google and Joe Lieberman

So, we established yesterday that Jose Pimentel aka Muhammad Yusuf was a YouTube user — specifically mujahidfisabillilah1.  Today his website, http://www.trueislam1.com/, has been removed as has his YouTube account.

Possibly this is in response to Joe Lieberman’s demand for better ways to police Google’s Blogger platform, which is where Pimentel’s blog was hosted.  (Well THERE’S a surprise – NOT!)  Lieberman is asking for is a flagging system so that readers can bring terrorist websites that are hosted at Blogger to their attention.  Right now, if you see an offensive site, you can send an email to Google complaining of terms of service violations, etc.  It exists.  All Mr. Lieberman wants is to make that process a little easier.  Oh.  And he’d like Google to actually state explicitly that terrorist content is against their terms of service.

“Through your updated YouTube standards, Google has affirmatively stated that terrorist content will not be permitted on some of your sites. I strongly believe that Google should expand that standard to include your other platforms.”

Pimentel hooked up with “Jihad Princess” at YouTube.  He promoted her YouTube channel at his Blogger-hosted website.  He also posted video lectures — hosted for free at YouTube — from well known terrorists like Osama bin Laden, Aw-Alaki and others to his Blogger website.  He even credited YouTube user “Jihad Princess” with helping him figure out how to use the Blogger format.

He said most of the photos on his site came from her and that she told him how to use the Google site Blogger — where she describes herself as “an islamic jihad enthusiast.”

Her profile is accompanied by a photo of a woman peeking out from a hijab. On another site, she says she was born in Yemen but lives in the United States.

No doubt the FBI and Homeland Security are already checking her out. — which might be why she’s been deleting stuff left and right.  Sort of like closing the gate after the cows get out.

A lot of people seem to be jumping on Mr. Lieberman  accusing him of only caring about it because it gets him in the spotlight.  Maybe.  But that’s beside the point.  My question is this:  how many arrests, how many almost terrorist events, how many demonstrable terrorist “hook-ups” are going to have to happen before Google is liable as an accomplice?  If they don’t do everything in their power to prevent their services being used by the terrorists, then they ARE complicit.

Was Jose Pimentel a YouTube User?

In what has become “same-old same-old,” another would-be bomber has been arrested in New York.  Don’t get me wrong – I’m glad they got him.  But what’s become monotonous is his story.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

A convert to radical Islam who was inspired by the late Yemeni-based cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, 27-year-old Jose Pimentel was planning to target police, postal workers and returning armed services personnel with small home-made pipe bombs, according to New York police authorities.

According to authorities, Pimentel, who had lived almost all his life in the US, had become a follower of the US-born al-Awlaki, who rose to become a top figure in al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and was killed in a US drone strike in Yemen last month. They said Pimentel had tried to contact al-Awlaki directly, but never got a response.

And where do you think is the easiest place to hear al-Awlaki lectures?   YouTube…  but of course!  The terrorists have their videos hosted for free, set up their little terrorist websites for all their little terrorist buddies, and then link to or embed the videos –hosted for free– on their sites so their little terrorist buddies can get all jazzed up and get violent.  Lovely!
C’mon YouTube – it’s about time to man up.  How many more of these guys are going to get nuts before you remove this stuff?  Seriously?  What does it take for you to agree it’s a threat?
….
UPDATE:  I was more on target than I knew!  I found a link to his blog, which currently is still online.  (here:  http://www.trueislam1.com/). I expect that it will be taken down soon – already it appears that there are some broken links to photos.  (?)  But I took a few screen caps of interest.
This is the header of the site – check out the other websites he recommended.  I’m sure the FBI is checking them out too.  Below, you can see the kinds of things that adorned the left and right sides of his blog — little boxes with videos of his favorite terrorists.  There are numerous one and I took several caps.  You can see a couple samples:
And – what’s that?? He was a YouTube user??  Say it ain’t so, Joe!  Are we shocked?  I think not.

Victory in Libya

Yes, it’s a victory.  But for whom?  From the DailyMail….

Thank you NATO.  Thank you President Obama!  A victory in Libya indeed.

The black flag of Al Qaeda was hoisted in Libya yesterday as Nato formally ended its military campaign.

The standard fluttered from the roof of the courthouse in Benghazi, where the country’s new rulers have imposed sharia law since seizing power.

Seen as the seat of the revolution, the judicial building was used by rebel forces to establish their provisional government and media centre.

America should be so proud of what our dear leader has wrought.

Islamic World Forum brings radical GMB to the US; George Mason University attends

It’s been a while since anyone has blogged here.  Hirabist Hunter has been busy and I’m having computer issues which are currently being resolved. 

This morning, Andrea from YouTube Smackdown Crew alerted me to a post at the Grendel Report regarding the Global Muslim Brotherhood.

The U.S.-Islamic World Forum, sponsored by the Brookings Institution, has reported that it’s 2011 event was held in the US for the first time and included a large number of individuals tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood as well as their supporters including the following persons….

The Global Muslim Brotherhood has been well documented by the Jawa Report and CBN as being a Global terrorist influence.

From CBN:

Before Osama bin Laden formed al Qaeda, he belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood.  So did his top deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri and the 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

In addition, the terrorist group Hamas identifies itself as the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch.

Former FBI Special Agent John Guandolo told CBN News the United States must become more aware of the Brotherhood’s growing influence.

“Here in the United States, virtually every prominent Islamic organization is controlled and led by the Muslim Brotherhood,” said Gunadolo. “Why this is key, is because they see that they are going to destroy our Western civilization from within.”

The Brotherhood’s immediate goal, though, is an Islamic state in Egypt — and an end to that country’s peace treaty with Israel.

Looking through the article at the Grendel Report, I noticed the list of scholars who attended the Forum included “Peter Mandaville (George Mason University funded by International Institute of Islamic Thought).”  So the IIIT endowment of GMU’s Islamic Studies supports a guy who attends a forum that is populated and influenced by radical people who are tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood.  Interesting.

So in our quest to discover what influences helped to radicalize Zach Chesser and Proscovia Nzabanita, maybe GMU’s Islamic Studies department needs a closer examination.  It would be a good place to start.

And why are we allowing them on our soil?  And what is Hillary doing there?  Yes – send an underling.  But sending Hillary makes them think we approve.  But then maybe the current administration does approve.

Facebook Jihadis

I received an item today from another member of the YouTube Smackdown crew.  I am usually more centered on YouTube and how that entity facilitates violent jihadis, but I could not just let this pass without sending it on for more attention.  It seems that Facebook is doing their part to contribute to the violence also.  I do not have permission to use the name of the person from whom this was originally received, so I will redact that portion of their email.

It is time to shame facebook for their continued inactivity in preventing terrorists from using their platform!  It is time to publicly call them out.  There are many of us who spend our individual free time “reporting” pages, to no avail.  Facebook must do a better job of keeping terrorists and their supporters from using facebook to promote their agendas and activities!  Please help.

Here is a SMALL list of sites that I regularly “report.”

Murder in Palestine

On Saturday, the news came that a cowardly terrorist broke into the home of Rabbi Vogel and family in the Itamar settlement on the West Banke in the middle of the night and murdered the Rabbi, his wife and three of their children.  One of the children was only three months old.  Horrific. Odd that the stories seem to omit that the deceased is a Rabbi, as in this ABC story:

Settler family killed in West Bank: Israel

Posted March 12, 2011 13:04:00

A Palestinian infiltrator killed five Israelis in a Jewish settlement in the West Bank early on Saturday, an Israeli military spokeswoman said.

Israeli media said the attacker broke into a house in the settlement of Itamar overnight and stabbed to death a couple and three children, including a baby, from the same family.

“Five civilians were killed in this terrorist attack,” the spokeswoman said.

She said troops were searching for the attacker in the area around Itamar, which is near the Palestinian city of Nablus.

She gave no further details.

- Reuters

The stories also tend to stress that this is “unusual” in a period of “relative quiet,” or as the Atlanta Journal and Constipation called it, “a lengthy lull.”  The AJC mentioned that

Israel has long contended that Palestinian textbooks and official media are full of hatred toward the Jewish state, and that killers of Israelis are often glorified

but stopped short of telling the rest of the story

The brutal attack comes only days after a West Bank Palestinian youth center announced a soccer tournament named after Wafa Idris, the first female Palestinian suicide bomber, who killed an 81-year-old man and injured over 100 other Israelis.

The glorification of this suicide bomber, though, was virtually ignored by Western media outlets, many of whom did find time to report, in great detail, on the first home game by the Palestinian national soccer team.

The latter event makes for an interesting human interest story. The former helps explain why peace has been so elusive in the Middle East. It’s likely that the terrorist who wiped out the family knew of the soccer tournament named after Wafa Idris. And if not he — or she — certainly knew that scores of other suicide bombers have been lauded as heroes by the Palestinian government and media. The killer undoubtedly internalized the message, reinforced time and time again, that it’s noble and heroic to kill Jews. The same goes for the person who planned the attack, and the one who transported the killer, and any other enablers.

The media is also, by choice of headline, intimating that the Israeli government is building 400 (or 500) new homes for Jews in the area as a response to the attack.

From Reuters:  Israel to Build Settler Homes After Palestinian Attack

Israel said on Sunday it would build several hundred homes for settlers in the occupied West Bank, a day after a Palestinian attack killed an Israeli couple and three of their children in a settlement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened a special session of a ministerial committee on settlement to approve the step after pledging publicly the stabbings on Saturday would not deter Israel from building more homes for Jews in the West Bank.

From the Ottowa Citizen: Israel to build settler homes after deadly attack

The AJC‘s story starts with:

Israel responded defiantly Sunday to a bloody Palestinian assault against West Bank settlers by approving construction of new settlement housing, retaliating for the stabbing deaths of a father, mother and three small children with a measure that infuriated Palestinians and, together with the attack, threw already shaky peace efforts into a new tailspin.

The announcement came after the killings, true.  But no doubt the plans were in place before the terrorist went nuts.

Rabbi Avichai Ronski, spokesman for the settlement which, is home to 800 Jews, was defiant after the attack.

“Our response to this crime is not to seek revenge but to carry on with construction” of more Jewish homes.

Whatever the imagined reasons, the truth of the matter is that a whackjob Islamic terrorist broke into the home of a Jewish Rabbi and murdered him, his wife, and three of his children including a 3 month old baby and a toddler.  There are no amount of constructions projects that legitimize murder.  None.  And to play with semantics here in the west and offer up excuses will serve only to lend tacit approval to what happened.

The Vogel Family: most of whom were slaughtered in their beds by a so-called 'Mujahid'. Seems more like a gutless excuse for a man to us, though. Image courtesy of undhimmi.com

 

May God rest their souls.
