"It's Like Disneyland": Hizballah Hosts "Jihad Tours" for Students

Hezbollah is offering tours of southern Lebanon for students, with the opportunity to learn how to fire rockets and anti-aircraft missiles. "It's surreal," said a French student who took part in the tour. "It's like Disneyland. I never expected to see such things."

Jihad chic for aspiring mujahedin and dhimmis alike. "Hezbollah holds 'Jihad tours' for students," from YNet News, May 18:

Just days before the tenth anniversary of Israel's withdrawal from southern Lebanon, Hezbollah hosted hundreds of students at what it called 'The Land of Islamic Resistance'.

For many of the Muslim and Christian young people it was the first visit to southern Lebanon. "We want our students, whether they are Hezbollah members, supporters or rivals, to see the land that Israel occupied for 22 years," said group member Mohammad Taleb.

"We want young people to know of the achievements made by the resistance and show them how wrong Israeli occupation is. This land was liberated by thousands of resistance fighters who fought every day in order to return the land to their people."

Many of the students were wide-eyed at a meeting with Hezbollah's militants. "It was like being in a movie," said Grace, a Christian Lebanese student. "I respect these young men, who liberated my land. I don't see them as terrorists, as the West describes them."

And I don't see you as a Christian, but as a dhimmi Islamochristian.

The militants, on their side, showed their guests how to fire rockets and anti-aircraft missiles. "These young people give us strength," said one gunman after the demonstration....

"It's surreal," said a French student who took part in the tour. "It's like Disneyland. I never expected to see such things."...

New U.S. military intelligence suggests Iran plans to smuggle new shipments of weapons into Afghanistan in the coming weeks as part of an increased effort to interfere with coalition operations, a senior U.S. Defense Department official said Friday.

The information came from an "Iranian source" whose tips on past shipments have been verified by the United States, the official said.

The official declined to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information. He also declined to offer more details on the identity of the Iranian source. Intelligence gained by talking to people, sometimes referred to as "human intelligence," is always considered sensitive for fear of compromising sources.

"There are indications the Iranians have stepped it up," the official said.

Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA)

Members of FCNA connected to Islamic extremism and terrorism

Abdurrahman Alamoudi

  • Abdurrahman Alamoudi, head of the American Muslim Council and American Muslim Foundation, was a trustee of the Fiqh Council of North America[1], a fact which he omitted, along with several other associations to various other Islamic organizations, from his U.S. citizenship/naturalization application. He was subsequently convicted of immigration fraud based on those omissions and plead guilty to a plot in which he was going to assassinate the leader of Saudi Arabia on behalf of Al Qaeda associates in London. He was sentenced to 23 years in prison.
  • On July 14, 2005, the Treasury Department issued a statement announcing that Alamoudi had facilitated the transfer of approximately $1 million to Al-Qaida from an organization called the Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia (MIRA), a U.K.-based Saudi oppositionist group, a group designated a terrorist organization by Treasury.[2] The Treasury Department release stated that the arrest of Alamoudi was a “severe blow to al Qaida, as Alamoudi had a close relationship with al Qaida and had raised money for al Qaida in the United States.”[3]
  • On September 29, 2003, Alamoudi was charged in the Eastern District of Virginia for illegal financial dealings with Libya, immigration fraud and tax evasion.[4] In July of 2004, Alamoudi plead guilty to three felony offenses[5] and admitted to taking part in a Libyan plot to assassinate Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.[6] In October of 2004 Alamoudi was sentenced to 23 years in prison.[7]

Why Does Fox News Promote Terror-Tied, FBI-Shunned Group?

CAIR has been blacklisted by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator of terror organizations, yet Fox frequently has their national communications director Ibrahim Hooper on air. Could it be that Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal owns a 5.5 voting stake in Fox’s parent News Corp. and funds CAIR? “In CAIR press releases, Hooper has stated unequivocally: ‘We do not support directly or indirectly or receive support from any overseas group or government.’” However CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad has been quoted as saying "We are planning to meet Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal for his financial support to our project. He has been generous in the past." There is a clear connection between CAIR, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal and Fox, as well as the Saudi prince and CAIR. “[This] raises questions not only about Fox News's independence, but about the truthfulness of CAIR's top spokesman.”

Long a reliably patriotic media source in the war on terror, Fox News may now be among news outlets who have fallen under the spell of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' propaganda machine.

"We own the media," CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper privately brags, according to a source currently working inside the aggressive Islamist lobby group.

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly last week invited the TV-savvy Hooper on his show to debate passenger profiling, the second guest appearance by the CAIR spokesman in a month. At the end of the segment, O'Reilly thanked Hooper and called him a "stand-up guy," sending shockwaves through the conservative blogosphere.

CAIR is no ordinary guest. The government has blacklisted it as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, and the group remains under criminal suspicion by the FBI, which has cut off outreach ties to it.


Yemeni Officials Admit They Are Losing the Battle Against Al-Qaeda

Al Qaeda has established strong ties with rural Yemeni tribes, strengthening their potential to beat ill-equipped government security forces that lack soldiers, arms, airplanes and helicopters.

Zinjibar, Yemen

Regional politicians have presented a much bleaker prognosis than the authorities in the capital Sana'a, who have repeatedly sought to play down the threat posed by extremists in the wake of the Detroit terror attack.

They say al-Qaeda has forged its strongest relationship with local tribes in the sparsely populated mountains and desert of the south, where long simmering resentment of the government has given way to near-rebellion.

On the outskirts of Zinjibar, the ramshackle principal town of Abyan province, the gates of an ageing villa set deep in a banana plantation are guarded by more than a dozen Yemeni soldiers and policemen.

Sitting inside his heavily protected official residence, Ahmed al-Misri, Abyan's governor, is a gloomy man who frankly admits he regrets ever having taken up the job.
