The Incident In Tennessee

“There’s this misconception that Islam is a violent religion. Muslims are actually peaceful,”

a quote from the Chattanooga Times Free Press in 2010 by Yasmeen Abdulazeez the sister of Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.

Here are the names of the five US military personnel who were shot down in cold blood at two military-related facilities in Chattanooga by her brother the terrorist. They were:

U.S. NavyMurered-in-Tennessee-3
Petty Officer Randall Smith, 26

Members of the USMC:

Staff Sergeant David Wyatt, 35,
Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Sullivan, 40,
Sergeant Carson Holmquist
Lance Corporal Skip Wells, 21.

Just three days ago after hearing of the cold blooded murder of five –unarmed! -US military personnel I had posted a comment on Facebook concerning the incident and “… the radicalization (of a growing number) of young (US citizens) Muslim men,” as stated in several news sources.

Before continuing here are some terms regarding Islamic groups:

Al-Qaeda is a radical Sunni Muslim organization dedicated to the elimination of a Western presence in Arab countries and militantly opposed to Western foreign policy: founded by Osama bin Laden in 1988.

Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen the Wahhabism/Salafism Sunni Moslem  “Mujahideen Youth Movement” more commonly known as Al-Shabaab is a jihadist terrorist group based in Somalia linked to Al-Qaeda.

Dar al Islam al Sham in the Arab world are called by the acronym Da’ish /Daesh or as you call them ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Levant/Syria] the international resurgence of ultra-Wahhabi terrorism. Is a Salafi jihadi extremist militant group and self-proclaimed caliphate and Islamic state which is led by Sunni Arabs from Iraq and Syria. As caliphate, it claims religious, political and military authority over all Muslims worldwide and that “the legality of all emirates, groups, states, and organisations, becomes null by the expansion of the khilāfah’s [caliphate’s] authority and arrival of its troops to their areas”

According to a Matt Smith,of  CNN the radicalization of Moslems in the US started a few years ago:

“As early as 2008, the FBI warned that more than a dozen youths, some of them American citizens, had left Minneapolis, home to the largest Somali population in the United States  to join al Qaeda to kill non Moslems.

They have carried out suicide bombings in Somalia. Many Somali-American young men from Minneapolis, Minnesota, have been slipping away to join the al Qaeda-affiliated guerrilla group Al-Shabaab for the past few years, sometimes in groups. Several have died, their relatives learning of their deaths in cryptic phone calls or in messages posted online. One of those killed was Burhan Hassan, who was killed fighting in Somalia.”

“In 2010, a federal grand jury charged 14 people in the United States with aiding Al-Shabaab. Two women in Rochester, Minnesota, were convicted of soliciting more than $8,000 for the group under false pretenses, telling contributors the money was for the poor, and received 10- and 20-year prison terms.”

CNN terrorism analyst Peter Bergen has said: “We know Shabaab has recruited in the United States.”

Republican Rep. Peter King of New York, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, has also warned in an article in 2013 that al-Shabab had recruited from the United States stated:

“I would assume that local law enforcement are looking into Somalia-American communities today,” King said, adding that US law enforcement will need to ensure a similar attack won’t happen on American soil.”

Some other facts to consider:

— Three of the terrorists who attacked Kenya’s Westgate Mall in Nairobi in September 2013 were from Minneapolis, Minnesota and one from Missouri.

— Anwar Al-Awlaki  was an American-born imam, who preached in 2001 at the Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va., where two of the 9/11 attackers reportedly prayed was killed in an American drone attack in Yemen on September 30, 2011.  He praised Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan in an article on his Web site and called the alleged Fort Hood shooter a “hero.”

–Nuradin M. Abdi, a Somali citizen living in Columbus, Ohio, was sentenced in 2007 to 10 years in prison after admitting he sought terrorist training in Ethiopia to carry out attacks, including a never-attempted attack on a mall in 2002.

–Derrick Shareef of Rockford, Illinois, was sentenced in 2008 to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to plotting to set off grenades at a Rockford shopping mall. Shareef was a convert to Islam who was recorded saying he wanted to kill “infidels.”

— The highest profile member of this group of “Native Born Islamic Terrorists” was Omar Hammami, a well-known Somalia-based terrorist who grew up in south Alabama was the most high-profile Westerner (in) the al-Qaida-linked terrorist organization (al-Shabaab). Al-Hammami whose Mother was a Baptist had married a Moslem, and according to his mother and maternal grand parents Omar was “raised a Baptist” but later converted to Islam, and had a falling out with the group. He died according to reports in a “fratricidal” ambush in 2012.

In response to my Facebook comment, regarding Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, I received several very “nasty” comments from pro-Falestinian Talkback Trolls. There were even a few “juicy” comments by some self-hating Jews (mainly from the San Francisco California Area – “Alumni” of Berkley) who suffer ‎from IDS, Israel Derangement Syndrome. ‎These members of the “Intellectual Elite of the Lower Gene Pool” stated that I lied about Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez being a “Palestinian”. Well if I lied then hopefully their mental capacity will allow them to read the quote from Reuters News Agency -released after my claim:

“Born to Palestinian parents and raised in a Chattanooga suburb…”

or this from YNET

“…the first friend said, adding that tensions between Abdulazeez and his “Palestinian” parents had upset him.”

As to the absolute stupidity and uselessness, of those meant to guarantee your safety in the USA those agents of Homeland (Non) Security and the FBI – (Abdulazeez’s friend quoted by Reuters and YNET said he has been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.) I bring to your attention this according to Reuters:

“They (the FBI) found Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez to NOT be a security risk.”

and this

“Years ago, his father, Youssuf Abdulazeez, an engineer who attended Texas A&M University, came under investigation by a Joint Terrorism Task Force for possible connections to a militant group, one source said. But he was cleared of any association with terrorism or wrongdoing.”

Maybe someone should consult with Israeli (actual) Intelligence?

These jewels of “Investigation,” by those of the “I” in FBI, is something I am sure the families of the dead American personnel will fully appreciate. Just as those families of the 13 murdered –unarmed – American Military personnel in the murderous rampage by Maj. Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 appreciate the conclusion that his actions were “NOT” a “Terrorist” attack.‎ ‎

As to the story of Reuters quoted on YNET:

“Abdulazeez went to the Middle East in 2010 and visited several countries, according to the friend. Abdulazeez’s friends said he returned from a trip to Jordan in 2014 to work for his uncle, and lived with his uncle and his grandparents there, the friend said.” …”he was upset about Operation Protective Edge in Gaza last summer and the civil war in Syria”

“He felt Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia were not doing enough to help, and that they were heavily influenced by the United States,” said one friend.”

Another friend said, “He had always talked about it, but I’d say his level of understanding and awareness really rose after he came back.”

“That trip was eye-opening for him. He learned a lot about the traditions ( Ah yes the religion of Peace) and culture of the Middle East.”


Now I am no employee of US Intelligence services but “IF”, a US citizen with a “Palestinian” background went not once but twice to the Middle East, and came back, and according to Reuters, went online and purchased not one but three semi-automatic weapons! I sure as hell would be closely watching him.


“Abdulazeez had purchased three guns on after returning from Jordan, including an AK-74, an AR-15, and a Saiga 12, his friends said. They said he also owned a 9mm and a .22 caliber hand gun.”

Oh and this other “quote” from the article by Richard Valdmanis and Mark Hosenball of Reuters:

“In 2013, he was hired as an engineer at an Ohio nuclear plant and spent 10 days there before he was let go. A spokesman for the FirstEnergy Corp, which owns the plant, did not say why he was dismissed and would not confirm media reports that he had failed a background check.”

After reading these last jewels of “Investigation” I do fervently hope that those residing in the US will be contacting your congressional representatives ASAP to improve your and your family’s safety.

And as we all know Secretary of State John Kerry and El Presidente Obama are adamant to belittle Israel and our Prime Minister because we tried to warn the world of the Tsunami of terror to no avail.

What the US administration is NOT telling you, is that with this agreement there will be some slow downs and some “cat and mouse” games, between the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) and the Iranians but the centrifuges are still there. And the Nuclear material are in the hands of the recognized main provider of assistance to all Shi’ite Islamic terrorist organizations in the world.

This accord will release the sanctions to ease the lives of everyday Iranians but billions of dollars and Euros will flood in to pay for The Revolutionary Guards to continue to take over parts of Syria and Iran with the Hezbollah. They will also use the funds to bankroll Hamas in Gaza as the Shi’ite Moslem world enters the war against the Sunnis in Dar al Islam al Sham or as they are referred to as ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Levant/Syria].

Now as a teacher of History I would like to quote from an article “The Coming War with Islam” by Solly Ganor (a survivor of Dachau in the Holocaust) from | March 15, 2007

Here is Solly’s intro:

“Last week, I had another conversation with an Israeli Arab construction boss by the unlikely name of Francis who was in charge of building a villa near our house in Herzliya. He told me that his family was Christian, and his name was given to him in honor of the Franciscan monks. Our conversation was as interesting as the first conversation I had with the Arab student five years ago and I would like to share it with you.”

The following are the words recorded by Solly in his article spoken by Francis the Christian Arab, who is from a small village in the Galilee called Jish (Gush Halav), between Kibbutz Sasa and Mount  Meron from 2007.

“The Americans, the Europeans, and even you Israelis really don’t know what it is all about, do you? During the last generation hundreds of thousands of children have been taught all over the Moslem world in Madrass schools to become martyrs for Allah in order to kill the infidels. These youngsters not only are ready to do it, but are actually in the process of doing it. Bombs are going off all over the world killing and maiming thousands of people, not only on 9/11 in the US, in London Madrid and Bali, but in Africa, India, Bengladesh, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and many other places. The first signs of the Islamic Tsunami are already here, but the West doesn’t understand, or doesn’t want to understand what is coming.”

“The Americans, instead of realizing that this is as bad as World War Two, or even worse, are going to pull out of Iraq, handing it over to Iran on a silver platter. Next may come the Saudis and the rest of the Gulf States. When dirty bombs go off all over Western towns, who is going to stop the Iranians?”

“Now is the time to stop them, not only because they are developing nuclear bombs, but because Iran has become the base for all Islamic terrorist. They supply money, men, and weapons to Islamic terrorists around the world, quite often through their diplomatic mail. Billions of petro-dollars that are pouring into Iran are being funneled into terrorist organizations world-wide. They believe, and perhaps rightly so, that the West will do nothing to stop them in achieving their goals. Is history repeating itself? Are the Iranians making the same mistake that Hitler made when he attacked Poland? Is the situation similar?”

Now I ask you to consider that “IF” a Moslem suicide bomber can put on a vest laden with ball bearings and shrapnel and go into a Mosque in Iraq or Saudi Arabia and blow himself up to murder other Moslems (because it is a “misconception” that Islam is a violent religion).  I do seriously wonder what will they do with the “freedom” to produce military grade uranium and what will stop them from using it in a more horrendous act?

As Francis stated:

“Actually, I don’t understand why the Iranians bother to develop atomic bombs and bring the whole world down on them. Every suicide bomber is a potential atomic bomb, or a biological, chemical or dirty bomb that can be no less devastating than an atom bomb. The Americans and Europeans have no defense against this type of war.”

In conclusion, a sane person has to scratch his head in wonder as to what is going through the minds of the supposedly elected leaders of the “Free World” when the major news outlets show Iranian’s celebrating the agreement marching in the streets of Tehran carrying banners and chanting not “just”  “Death to Israel” but “Death to America?”

Here is what Francis the Christian Arab suggested to do back in 2007:

“You said there are two ways to avoid Armageddon?” I remembered to ask him:”


“Sure, all the West has to do is follow Putin’s ways. He assassinates his enemies without blinking an eye. Assassinate the four or five Mullahs who run the show, Ahmadinejad, and a few more Iranian fanatics, and the War can be avoided. It may be difficult to do, but not impossible. With today’s hi- tech technology I am sure that new weapons against individuals are being prepared right now. I think it would be a better way of handling the matter than an all out war against Islam.”
