Candidate for Most Under Reported News of the Year

 

The story begins in Northview Heights, the low-income housing project, which used to be ninety percent African-American. This was altered as the plan under President Obama brought in Syrian refugees with minimal screening. When President Trump attempted to restrict such immigration until a more stringent vetting policy could be implemented, he was attacked as being a racist (please view our article about the use of words such as racist). This sent his order before one court after another and also left the United States to continue to be as vulnerable as they were under President Obama. Many of these Syrian refugees had been settled in Northview Heights. One such refugee, it turns out, was also a member of the Islamic State (ISIS). Mustafa Mousab Alowemer was such an individual. It was presumably a well-known fact which intelligence had reported that the Islamic State had been placing their operatives in amongst the refugees. But this case was slightly different as the terrorist in question came as part of a family. Still, Mustafa Mousab Alowemer had made several social media posts swearing his allegiance to Islamic State and proclaiming his readiness to carry out operations for them within the United States.

 

The fortunate part of this unreported story was that the FBI and law enforcement moved in and prevented what could have been a horrific crime. This neighborhood had been utilized as an end point for immigrant refugees preciously. This was the international part that was reflected in the multicultural population of African-Americans and African immigrants, including Nigerian Christians. It was the presence of Nigerian Christians which set off Mustafa Mousab Alowemer and he was determined to do something about these, as he saw them, polytheists. He plotted to take care and for the massacre of the Christians whom he called, “Mushrikeen”, an Islamic religious term which condemns Christians and Jews as infidels and deems them to be fair game for mass murder. Mustafa Mousab Alowemer was quoted ranting, “This house is still for the ones who go to church because they are Nigerians. They are all polytheists. We, we, take revenge for our brothers in Nigeria.” This was a reference to Boko Haram which is the Islamic State terrorist allied group which is currently attacking Christian villages and the ones who abducted the girls from a Christian school which received world attention but not much action with a typical response being the hashtag project where people, including Michelle Obama (see image below) calling for action using “#BringBackOurGirls” as a means of applying pressure. As most of Boko Haram do not have internet connections, this became a farce of how to do something while accomplishing nothing.

Mustafa Mousab Alowemer plotted to bomb this church while it was holding services to maximize the numbers of Christians and particularly Nigerians as he was able. He had a decent plan as he would place a backpack bomb at the church with a timer allowing him to reach a Mosque for his alibi and where the others would attest to his having been there the entire morning. This was balanced by his desire to hear the explosion. He had hoped this act would “shock the enemies of Allah almighty everywhere and all over America” as well as preventing Christians “going to their churches and instill fear in their hearts.” He had further planned to leave an ISIS flag and a message, “We’ve arrived.” Mustafa Mousab Alowemer has been in the United States since August of 2016, almost three years. He told the man he thought was his accomplice, “I was raised in Jordan on loving the Jihad and the Mujahedeen. I met some Jordanian brothers, some of which did the Nafir in Raqqah, and I, alongside some brothers, were arrested three times in Jordan, because I was one of the supporters.” Despite three arrests for associating with ISIS fighters and for supporting ISIS, Mustafa Mousab Alowemer made it through the scant vetting process and was permitted entrance into the United States.

 

Mustafa Mousab Alowemer planned the attack on the church where people from his neighborhood attended services including fellow students from Brashear High School, an English as a Second Language school with a large refugee attendance. He had no compunction over potentially murdering kids he had attended classes with, that was the depth of his hatred for these Christians and specifically the Nigerians. His presumed accomplice was actually an FBI agent and this permitted the FBI to prevent this tragedy. Yet, when talking with our friends and contacts in the United States, surprisingly none had heard a word about this plot to bomb a black church. Perhaps it was to protect the refugee program. Perhaps it was to shield Islam from bad media which might cause people to think differently about trust concerning members of the Islamic faith, not any racial context, merely religious and social context.

 

Some additional information about Mustafa Mousab Alowemer. He wrote in his nasheed (a musical chant) addressed to the leader of ISIS, “I long for the promise of Allah, he promised me paradise, he motivated me for martyrdom. I long for the land of the Caliphate. I am expecting to raise the banner. I will spill my blood for the victory of my religion.” Fortunately, he was denied this self-defined honor to his faith and to those he had pledged his full-fledged support. Those who may be more callous might claim that the reason this story which has so many intrigues, implications, twists and revealing angles was so under-reported was because it does not fit the narrative the news desires to convey, that right-wing or alt-right white males are the only ones who bomb black churches. To have to report that an American Syrian refugee who is Islamic was planning to bomb a black church would cross too many of the pet sympathies of the mainstream media. Reporting on Islamic criminality has been kept under the radar across Europe and it apparently has crossed over to the United States. But unless you read many foreign news reports from across the globe, you probably missed this story. We would hope that it would be that the media reported the news without their politically correct filters thus allowing the public to be fully informed and able to make up their own minds about what to think about the serious issues of the day, and terrorism is definitely amongst those pressing issues of the day. But the media in the developed world had decided that they should do our thinking for us and that we are too uncultured, uneducated, unrefined, unsophisticated, ignorant and probably a dozen more equally dulling reasons for which they hide news which the public might not grasp the full connotations, innuendos, denotations, inferences and insinuations which in no way could be explained such that the rest of us could ever hope to understand. Such ill regard for the public the media is supposed to serve and report about everything affecting their lives should infuriate the average person. But this was a case of an event which went against almost all the media stereotypes which they have defined to every group because stereotypes are good for them but not for you. Until the mainstream media start reporting instead of filtering according to some editorial slant coloring our news, we will need to rely on outside reporting and commentary to often report reality and give a clearer picture of our world than the fantasy sold on the television, in radio and on the pages of newsprint across the land. That is the state of the world in which we find ourselves and until we repair the damages done by censoring the news has done, many of us are walking around in the dark being denied light by the supposed light-bringers, the media. For now, they are selling us blinders and eventually these will become blindfolds as events continue to make what they have been reporting to become so obviously wrong-headed and slanted that people demand real news sparking potentially a revolution in the media business. Rest easy and do not trouble your heads as the media will sell you sweet songs of alluring tranquility lulling you into a sense of sweet slumber.

United Nations Headquarter Struck and the World Yawns

 

Barcelona with thirteen murdered is a horrific event for which Daesh has taken credit. One week before, or a little more, another attack occurred striking a United Nations Peacekeeping Headquarters with fourteen casualties and thus far the silence has been deafening. Well, so it was not exactly New York City United Nations Headquarters, it was more like in Timbuktu. Really, it was the United Nations Headquarters in Timbuktu, Mali. Seven individuals were murdered and another seven injured and yet their lives did not matter, as they were not European. It was a machinegun attack by an individual or groups where Jama’a Nusrat ul-Islam wa al-Muslimin’ (JNIM), which is Al-Qaeda’s arm in Mali, has claimed responsibility. According to Reuters, the peacekeeping headquarters had been a frequent target of terrorists in the past. JNIM is one of numerous bands of Islamic radical terrorist fighters making war from Mali to Somalia all along the African Transition Zone (see below). Likely, the most covered of these groups operated largely in Nigeria and surrounding nations, including Mali, and is known as Boko Haram. They made world news with their kidnapping of two-hundred-seventy girls from a school in the town of Chibok in Borno State of the northern region of Nigeria. The entire horrific and never completely resolved terror of the situation was presumably caught and framed perfectly, at least according to the New York Times, Washington Post, numerous other mainstream media outlets in print, television, cable and Internet fascination with the Twitter post which swept the world and was the answer from the White House with Michelle Obama pouting picture holding a sing with #Bring Back Our Girls written in black marker on a standard size sheet of printer paper. This heartfelt plea somehow was ineffective on the terrorists in the Nigerian jungle but, and this is pitifully true, it was at least some effort. There were offers to send Special Forces from the United States and IDF advisors and soldiers by Israel, both politely refused by Nigeria who chooses to continue their methods against the Boko Haram terrorists.

 

African Transition Zone

African Transition Zone

 

These attacks along this region have been occurring for quite some period of time. In some areas, this war has a history reaching back as much as a thousand years if not longer. The war has been between Islamic forces and the Animists and Christians to their south. Islam spread across MENA starting in the Middle East and continuing across North Africa and on into Spain (Andalusia) finally being turned back in the Battle of Tours by Charles the Hammer Martel on October 10, 732. We could even use that date as a guide to the length of the wars in northern Central Africa. There is a message in the fact that over the past century, after a period of relative calm and only occasional bursts of violence, the war has returned and slowly gained intensity and will continue to gain in intensity until either the Animists and Christians are fleeing the Islamic purging of Africa on ships from Cape Town, South Africa or the Islamic forces have been roundly defeated forcing them to melt back into the Muslim populations to await their next test of the resolve of those who are unlike them. There is a parallel building to the north of this region where the troubles are just reaching their initial stages. The troubles are being birthed just across the Mediterranean Sea in industrialized Europe. Perhaps the people and leaders of Europe should take a long hard look across the waters and learn from the troubled times in northern Central Africa. There they might see their own future and decide not to travel down the same road. The people of Africa had no alternative as Islam burst upon them uninvited back when the world was a very different place. They saw the golden age of Islam and its fall as the Ottoman Empire collapsed ending in World War I. Europe had a different problem over which they have a modicum of control as they have invited Islam into their homes.

 

Terrorism is the initial entry into an area, the crack in the façade, the initial infiltration into which the takeover and the forces of conquest will flow. There is an entire Quranic method which Islam has used for centuries and only recently, they have dusted off the old instructions and have begun again. Their initial attempts were in the Balkans and Chechnya. The altercations and terrorism in Israel is of a different nature as that is a war where Islam must retake lands which they lost, something which is never supposed to occur and must not be permitted by Islam. The Quran tells them that Allah supports their efforts as long as they continue to follow Islam and the Five Pillars (see below) and surrender to Allah as Islam means surrender. They have faced a long period of confusion as the West gained wealth and power defeating them at every turn. This could only mean that they had failed to be sufficiently religious and fervent enough in following the laws of the Quran. Their Imams told them they must return now to the ways of Muhammad while he was in Medina as those were the times which had brought Islam its greatness. They shunned the teachings of Mecca which could have allowed cooperation and working in conjunction with others to build and not as destroyers to tear down. We described the different teachings in an introductory article titled, “Which Quran, Mecca or Medina?

 

Five Pillars of Islam

 

Their most highly revered Imams such as Yusuf al-Qaradawi are some who are making the loudest protestations that Islam is rising and about to enter their third and final stage of conquest and that at the end of this last and final stage the world will have fallen to the forces of Islam and they will rule from that point on forever. This is part of what is fueling the fires which are spreading slowly over Europe plus the United States and will continue onto the rest of the world unless prevented. Such prevention will take a will to stand and the stamina to see this war to its final end. Currently, the Western world has no stomach for this long fight and will fall rapidly as the forces of Islam gather the most modern weapons with the most lethal destructiveness and use them with no regard for the consequences for all that matters is the destruction of the other by any and all means available. As Jibril Rajoub stated in an interview by Al-Mayadeen TV in Lebanon, “There is no going back to negotiations unless the source of authority is the international resolutions, with a time frame and with the freezing of all unilateral Israeli steps: Jerusalem, the fence, settlements and prisoners.” When the Lebanese TV host responded, “You’ve heard Israel’s refusal.” Jibril Rajoub immediately retorted, “That doesn’t matter. Listen. We as yet don’t have a nuke, but I swear that if we had a nuke, we’d have used it this very morning.” We included the video below.

 

 

That is what Israel is facing and realizes this. This is also what the world will be facing once the terrorists gain access or knowledge and resources for nuclear weapons. Many in the Islamic world could not care about the other effects and ramification of the general use of nuclear weapons. They would just as joyously use enough nuclear weapons to lay waste to the entirety of the world which is not Islamic and then use the remainder to destroy those Muslims who practice the wrong kind of Islam. Imagine ISIS with nuclear weapons or Boko Haram with nuclear weapons or Bashir al-Assad with nuclear weapons or on and on through the entirety of the Islamic radical world and just imagine what would remain of the world if they possessed just the nuclear weapons sitting in France, Germany and Britain and then imagine it is fifty years hence and those three nations are now ruled by Islam.

McCain Claims Just Like Watergate

 

Arizona Senator John McCain, a man of steel nerves and a proven dedication to those captured with him, making him a genuine hero, is claiming that the series of leftist claims about President Trump, along with the latest “highly classified” information about an ISIS plot to smuggle explosive device within a notebook computer which the President shared with Russia, is now reaching “a point where it’s of Watergate size and scale.” McCain continued at a dinner to receive the International Republican Institute’s Freedom Award, “I think we’ve seen this movie before. The shoes continue to drop, and every couple days there’s a new aspect.” McCain insists that Trump needs to “get it all out.” In comments made to the Daily Beast McCain suggested, “the longer you delay, the longer it’s going to last.”

 

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah supposed the following about Trump and the Presidency in general, “There isn’t anybody who can run the White House without criticism. This man has been subject to more criticism than any predecessor that I know of. They hate him, they didn’t like the fact that he won, he beat their favorite, it was a remarkable election.”

 

And despite believing that President Trump is capable of handling sensitive information Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stated, “It would be helpful to have less drama emanating from the White House.”

 

Judging from the quantity and the level of acrimony in the previous statements, one would have to suspect that either Senator McCain was a founding member of the Never Trump Association in the Republican Party, he is eying another run for the White House in 2020 thus is setting up his campaign against Trump or he may simply be losing it allowing his craving for headlines to get the better of him. The idea that Trump should just get everything out front revealed is a great idea with one slight problem; even Trump does not know what act of his will become the next impeachable offense. He might have steak and eggs for breakfast thus leading to demands he resign due to his insensitivity of the poor who cannot even have steak for Sunday dinner, let alone for breakfast with eggs and all the trimmings. He might be caught not holding the door open for First Lady Melania thus being of insufficient class and upbringing to hold the office or holding the door for First Lady Melania thus being insensitive and insulting, acting as if she needs a man’s assistance thus forcing male dominance and ignoring her capabilities as a mature and self-reliant woman. President Trump cannot lay everything out until the hyperventilating class finds their next breathtaking Trumpism over which to claim the end of the world is nigh as President Trump had now gone around the bend, over the top and well beyond the pale with whatever tomorrow brings. Most of the Republicans simply felt and expressed when pressured that this was just more of #Trumpamania where everything Trump says, does or is reputed to have done is played up WWE style Summerslam coming this Sunday in an arena near you. In a way, it has become so true that many are now able to return to Facebook and the screaming about Trump simply slips past their gaze as they continue down the page looking for kitten and puppy videos or pictures of the grandkids. #Trumpamania has simply become a way of life treated much like one treats shampoo commercials unless they are having a bad hair day and planning on a change. Sure, you read every seventh post just in case President Donald has done anything new and amazingly stupid, we mean beyond his usual amazingly stupid. In a way it is nice to have a different set of people upset with the President as the conservatives were so dowdy and humdrum with their complaint and the liberals can be so over the top excitable that the difference is stark. At least the conservatives after a month mostly calmed down and hunkered down for the duration. Apparently liberals do not hunker down, and most definitely do not calm down and they are so capable of finding extreme malice in the most innocent of actions. Some will likely go ballistic over this claiming we do not take things seriously enough. We knew Trump was not going to be a normative President but were willing to tolerate his idiosyncrasies over having Hillary Clinton continue down the primrose path to oblivion. Of course, we did not vote for either candidate as we live outside the United States and leave American politics to the capable hands of Americans.

 

Apparently there are two completely different types of Americans, or so we have learned, the quiet, oh well, they won and we lost and we will just have to go on with our lives, Americans; and the we lost, really, can’t be, they will pay, there will not be a moment’s peace and our screaming will deny them sleep, how dare they vote against what we want, Americans. They truly are completely different to such a point that they may actually be separate genus of Americans with actual DNA differences. Somebody should look into this, as we may be witness to the first discernable separation of the current Human genome on record here. Science really will be hard pressed for an explanation but something has to be at the bottom of the difference here. They both desired changing who was President but only one group acted as if they could prove anything true in their claims that it meant that their candidate would then be sworn in as President and not the Vice President. If we understand anything about American politics, and we likely do, then there is little chance of reversing the election no matter what one proves unless in a court of law you can prove vote tampering. As far as we have noted, nobody has claimed that there was any vote tampering, just too much information released about Hillary. We figure this article finally deserves our own twist of humor which means it is time for our Donald Trump as a hot-air balloon picture, so here it is, back for a command performance.

 

Trump as Hot Air Balloon

 

We were exonerated as we heard on a newscast that the Russians or Wikileaks, does it matter any longer, hacked the Republicans and found nothing nefarious to report on Trump which the Republicans themselves had not released in their attempts to submarine his candidacy. Here is our theory on this, the reason Trump won the Republican nomination was because the party hated the idea of him as their candidate and thus he had to be the one as they had such poor choices the previous two elections. The Republican voters decided, hey, choosing the candidate they like worked so poorly, let’s try the hated guy, how bad could it be? And they proved correct, it was bad but he did win and that might be the bad part of it. Perhaps they thought it beat losing again and they are now steeled against anything he does, as they knew he was flawed, that was why they chose him. When you support a flawed candidate and they win you expect a little fallout, but the #Trumpamania that has followed this election takes everything to a new level. Who could have expected such a full-blown explosion of rage and temper tantrum. The entire news corps has all turned into screaming two year olds throwing their first hissy fit. It is entirely fascinating. Even many conservative writers are out there picking at Donald Trump, granted their tantrums prove them to be the rank amateurs we always knew they were, they have no idea how to throw a tantrum. Well, we have taken enough of your time; we now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast of #Trumpamania conquers the media.
