Jihadists ‘Plot to Take over Birmingham [UK] Schools’
March 8, 2014 — Breitbart.com reports: “Education chiefs in Birmingham are investigating an alleged plot by Islamic fundamentalists to take over schools by ousting head teachers and staff members through a dirty tricks campaign.
The Birmingham Mail reports that it has received documents purporting to show that jihadists are launching an operation called ‘Trojan Horse’ through which they plan to orchestrate false allegations against staff members.
Once the original staff members are ousted, the group allegedly plan to install their own supporters in positions of influence and encourage the schools to educate children in strict Islamic principles. They would then apply for academy status, allowing them to be taken out of local authority control, and thus be freer to run the school along strict Islamic lines.
The plot to oust existing staff is said to involve recruiting hard-line parents to spread false allegations. One document says: ‘We have caused a great amount of organised disruption in Birmingham and as a result we now have our own Academies and are on our way to getting rid of more head teachers and taking over their schools.
‘Whilst sometimes the practices we use may not seem the correct way to do things you must remember this is a ‘Jihad’ and as such all means possible to win the war is acceptable.’…” (Islam presently prepares for global control. Khomeini and Khamenei of Iran and Kabbani of the USA all promote holy jihad [holy war]. When they win Sharia Law replaces the laws of the nations overtaken by them. Sharia Law puts to death all daughters who have had premarital sex, all homosexuals, all apostate Muslims who defect from the faith and all infidels [other religious rejecters] who will not renounce their current beliefs for Islam. More on this brutal barbaric religion of fear which warns ‘convert or die’. How different Christ and Christianity are – “…Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.” – Luke 6:27 & 28; and “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” – I John 3:16.

Hate Preacher Drives ‘Al Qaeda van’ Through London Street
March 9, 2014 — Breitbart.com reports: “An extremist preacher could face prosecution after driving a van emblazoned with radical Islamist logos through a busy London high street, The Sunday Times reports.
The ‘Al Qaeda van’ stunt was staged by Anjem Choudary and his followers in a north London high street last Saturday. Footage was uploaded to YouTube by the username ‘Need4Khilafah’.
The van was covered with posters in English and Arabic, including the logo of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a radical militant group fighting in the Syrian civil war.
In the YouTube footage, Choudary appears while supporters chant in praise of ISIS. The Times reports that one of the supporters uses a loudspeaker to shout from within the van: ‘Islam is the solution for Great Britain, Islam is the solution for the world.’…”
Syrian Jihadists Target Children for Indoctrination, Training
February 23, 2014 — Voice of America News reports: “Al-Qaida linked jihadists in insurgent-held areas in northern and eastern Syria are targeting children as young as four-years-old and teenagers for indoctrination, conducting teach-ins, opening schools and training camps, say human rights activists.
The goal opposition activists and psychologists warn is a determined effort by al- Qaida to turn out a new generation of fighters, who will prove highly intractable and may turn out even more fanatical than the previous generation of al-Qaida adherents. Rehabilitation of children recruited as child soldiers at very young ages is notoriously difficult, according to therapists who have worked on treatment projects in Africa and the Middle East.
‘You are seeing the jihadists trying to create a new pool of suicide bombers,’ says psychotherapist Mohamed Khalil of the London-based Arab Foundation for Care of Victims of War and Torture. ‘You can influence children very easily,’ he says. ‘They give these lost children in the middle of war an identity and prestige, telling them they are mature now and men. They saturate them with jihadist thinking and in effect brainwash them. They are co-opting them into a way of life that will be hard to shake off later.’
A recent spate of online videos on jihadist forums of Syrian children and teenagers undergoing jihadist instruction demonstrates the scale of the indoctrination and the effort expended on training and recruitment in the middle of the war. The videos supply ‘marketing’ material for al-Qaida and their sympathizers to propagate via the Internet jihadist thinking to children and teenagers beyond Syria in Europe and the Gulf…”
Norway Faces Danger from Syrian Jihadists
February 25, 2014 — Israel National News reports: “Norway’s intelligence agency said Monday that it fears an increased ‘terrorist threat’ to its country due to dozens of Norwegian nationals fighting in the Syrian conflict, AFP reported.
At least 40 or 50 people with links to Norway have fought, or are currently fighting, with forces opposed to the Bashar Al-Assad regime and run the risk of returning as seasoned radical fighters, the Norwegian Intelligence Service (NIS) wrote in its annual threat assessment report.
‘We conclude that the threat has already increased and will continue to increase throughout 2014,’ the head of NIS General Kjell Grandhagen said, adding that these ‘jihadists’ are often in the most radical Islamic groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) and the Al-Nusra Front.
The NIS estimates that about 2,000 rebel fighters have travelled from Europe to fight the Syrian regime but did not reveal how the figure was calculated, according to AFP.
Norwegian daily Verdens Gang also reported Monday that about a dozen women have left Norway for Syria to join rebel groups.
In late 2013 the fate of two teenage girls of Somali origin hit the headlines in Norway when they left to join a jihadist group in Syria and were located weeks later by their father who brought them home.
According to figures released earlier this month, over 75,000 foreign nationals have been fighting in the Syrian civil war…”
Syrian Girl Stoned To Death for Having Facebook Account
February 18, 2014 — Breitbart.com reports: “A Syrian girl has been stoned to death for having a Facebook account, according to numerous reports out of the war-torn country.
Fatoum al-Jassem was executed after being convicted by a sharia court in the city of Ar-Raqqa, which is currently under the control of the formerly Al-Qaeda affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).
The jihadist outfit sentenced al-Jassem on the basis that having a Facebook account is ‘Zina’, or immoral, and deserves to be punished in the same way as adultery. She was stoned to death by a mob of Islamists in the north Syrian city…”
Syrian extremists amputated a man’s hand and live-tweeted it
February 28, 2014 — The Washington Post reports: “The extremist Syrian group deemed too radical even for al-Qaeda performed what may have been a Twitter first Friday: live-tweeting the amputation of a hand.
The amputation took place in the remote rural town of Maskanah in the northern province of Aleppo, according to a series of tweets posted by the account of a supporter of the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
The first showed a photograph of a blindfolded man having his arm positioned on a table by fighters as a masked man wielding a sword waits nearby. Another man, wearing a white robe of the kind favored in Arab Gulf countries, is reading a statement. A caption states that the blindfolded man is a thief who had asked to have his hand cut off ‘in order to cleanse his sins.’…”
