The True Origins of the Youtube Video – The Terry Jones Plan

STORY UPDATED JUNE 9, 2014

The Story of Benghazi – The Origins of the Youtube Video

First, it is crucial to gain the proper perspective – President Obama has always been sympathetic to the Islamic worldview and Marxist (anti-American) ideology, as supported by the following facts:

1.) For several years, while growing up in Jakarta, Indonesia (not America, as have most American citizens), Barack Obama, then named Barry Soetero, “studied the Koran and attended classes on Islam” at the Menteng One school and was listed as “Muslim”. 1

2.) His father (?)12 was a Muslim, and a very active and outspoken anti-colonialist (anti-American) who had an enormous influence on President Obama during his formative years.

3.) Most all of Mr. Obama’s relatives on his father’s side are Muslim. 13

4.) As a young adult, he changed his name to a Muslim name (Barack Hussein Obama).

5.) He made a trip to Pakistan at age 19 – 20, as a Muslim, among other things, to learn about how Jihadist tactics could be implemented to further Afro-American causes. 3

6.) As President, he has made numerous appointments of Islamic sympathizers and supporters, to high level positions in the US Government. 4,5,6

7.) In many speeches he has expressed his heart-felt support for and defense of Islam, Muslims the Muslim way of life (far more than Christianity) as well as clearly Marxist principles. 13

8.) Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA (CPUSA) propagandist and pornographer, was under FBI surveillance for 19 years, once “…subpoenaed by the Senate Subcommittee on Un-American Activities and pleaded the fifth”, had an inordinate amount of influence in Obama’s pre-teen and teenage life. 11,12

With that sympathy toward Muslims in general, the President’s approach to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to Middle East Foreign Policy have been “to win the hearts and minds” of Muslims. Those exact words have been used in countless references, by the Left and from the mainstream media, in reference to the way in which various situations have been handled diplomatically by the Obama Administration, and as impetus for the new “Rules of Engagement” for military personnel, imposed by it, where US troops have been required to restrain from engaging enemy combatants under most circumstances, for all practical purposes, leaving them with their hands tied and at the mercy of “insurgents”. This new military policy is responsible for many unnecessary and avoidable US injuries and casualties overseas, since President Obama took office. 2

In May, 2011, US Military Intelligence found Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, and he was heroically killed by Navy SEALs, with President Obama’s go-ahead. It is a matter of historical fact that this action was coincidentally taken when President Obama’s approval numbers had reached their lowest levels since the time he had taken office in 2009… and there was another election in a year and a half.

However, if this action, of taking-out bin Laden was done in hopes of boosting Obama’s popularity, it only minimally did so, due to the fact that bin Laden’s body was immediately honored with Muslim rites… an ending to a very long chapter, which of course incensed most Americans still grieving the losses of 911, as it represented a particularly inappropriate demonstration of the President’s misplaced, dishonest and blatant Islamic leanings.

Then, in a heretofore unheard-of breach of military secrecy, Vice President Biden announced that SEAL Team Six was directly responsible for bin Laden’s death, which of course made them the single, most sought-after targets of any and all Muslim extremists who either served under or admired bin Laden. However, as many sources have claimed, this announcement was not a mistake, but rather quid pro quo; in return for the US having killed Osama bin Laden. It had been agreed that a.) information about who specifically was responsible for bin Laden’s death would be leaked by America to certain Islamic organizations and b.) they would be granted de facto authority in certain military operations, as well as be given access to strategic military information in Afghanistan, so said Islamic extremists could easily exact their revenge. 9

The Obama Administration learned, within months of the bin Laden assassination, that there would be terrorist attacks of vengeance in Libya and elsewhere… and it was during the Summer of 2011, when the planning of how to handle those attacks began.

Note: After the Benghazi attack, Al Qaeda, declared that it was executed in revenge for a US drone strike in June, that killed their organization’s number two leader, Abu Yahya al-Libi. 7

Enter Nakoula Basseley Nakoula – a Muslim and the creator/producer of the Youtube video, alleged to be a trailer for a film entitled “Innocence of Muslims”.

Back story:10

For over a decade, the FBI and the CIA had been tracking a man in the US by the name of Nakoula Nakoula and a “ring-leader” by the name of Eiad Salameh, in connection with numerous counts of fraud, grand larceny and also funneling illegally attained funds to various international Muslim terrorist organizations. Mr. Nakoula was arrested in 2009 for bank fraud, but in return for a sentence reduction, became a government informant… and much more.

Side story:
During the same time-frame, 2012, Terry Jones, a pastor of a small nondenominational Christian church in Gainesville, Florida, planned to burn copies of the Qur’an on the ninth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. This became headline news and Jones was painted as a Right-wing extremist by the mainstream news media. On April 28th 2012, Jones and 20 of his followers did indeed burn copies of the Qur’an. He was fined $271 by the Fire Department.

Jones was subsequently banned from various countries and even sentenced to death (in absentia) in Egypt.

After the Benghazi attacks, Mr. Jones was accused, by various media outlets, of being involved in the promotion of the “Innocents of Muslims” Youtube video.

Now, back to the time before the video was created and released – Spring 2012:
Most importantly, as anyone who was awake at the time will remember, President Obama’s poll numbers, even after the bin Laden assassination, were way below where they needed to be for him to secure re-election  in November with any certainty… and everyone knew it. And by late May/early June 2011, it was only looking worse.

Desperate times call for desperate measures…

In light of the Terry Jones story, which had been headline news, with him burning Qur’ans just four days prior to bin Laden’s assassination, and whereas the Obama Administration had learned that there would definitely be retaliation, in the form of terrorist attacks, either President Obama or someone in the Obama Administration conceived of the following plan…

Rather than allow the attacks to happen on his watch (attacks they then knew for certain were coming due to promised made by various Muslim extremists), no doubt crippling his re-election campaign even more and certainly render him a hypocrite, in light of his “winning the hearts and minds of Muslims” comments, they would instead create another Terry Jones type character to perpetrate another, even more offensive act (the ridiculous Youtube video), so that they could point to that character, and all those like him – on the Right of course – as the ones who really responsible for the attacks and for all hatred by Muslims for America and the West.

Later it was thought by those devising this scheme, that perhaps Terry Jones himself could be enticed to promote the video, which would “seal the deal” in terms of theoretically legitimizing the video.8

All they needed was a.) something really offensive to Muslims – which became the Youtube video – and b.) someone whom they could use to play the role of a crazy, Right-wing extremist, Christian or perhaps Jew.

They didn’t have to look too far… The FBI was able to provide the Attorney General and the President the perfect candidate…

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula had used at least 16 different aliases over the years, in carrying-out illegal activities. The following are just a few that we know of: Matthew Nekola; Ahmed Hamdy; Amal Nada; Daniel K. Caresman; Sobhi Bushra; Robert Bacily; Thomas J. Tanas; Abanob Basseley Nakoula; Sam Bacile; Mark Basseley Youseff; Kritbag Difrat; Erwin Salameh; Nicola Bacily; Yousseff M. Basseley; Malid Ahlawi; and even P.J. Tobacco (during a cigarette smuggling stint, believe it or not). So, the idea of having him portray himself as a Right-wing extremist, Christian or whatever, would obviously not be a problem at all… and that is exactly what he did.

So, there is the question: If Nakoula is a Muslim and had any true religious conviction, why would a he submit to being any part in creating a cartoonish anti-Muslim film? Answer: In order to further the cause of Islam… just as the government officials told him he would be doing.

After the Youtube video’s release, in July 2012 (not September 2012), and after the Benghazi attack, in media interviews around the world Nakoula first claimed to be a Right-wing, Copt Christian, anti-Muslim fanatic. He also later claimed to be a Jew and Israeli citizen, but this was proven to be a lie by the Israeli government, and finally he claimed, in an Egyptian television interview, to be a Right-wing secularist.

How interesting it is that just a few weeks before an election, everything that Mr. Nakoula claimed to be, conveniently matched the exact description of Barack Obama’s political opposition (Right-wing secularists, Christians or Jewish sympathizers), but unfortunately, it was also all complete lies. Nakoula Nakoula was none of those things. He was a pawn a dupe, a stooge, who is now in jail and will no doubt rot and die there, if for no other reason than he absolutely must be kept quiet. On the day they locked him away, there must have been the greatest sigh of relief ever to have been breathed from any White House Administration.

Bombshell Indicting Obama and Hilary In Benghazi/al Qaeda Corruption

From Walid Shoebat’s website:

 

Exclusive Walid Shoebat Bombshell

Barack Obama’s claim to election fame – that Al-Qaeda has been destroyed – needs a reality check, according to a group of anti-Al Qaeda Libyans in exile. “We beg to differ,” they exclaimed. “Obama gift-wrapped Libya, handed it over to Al-Qaeda, and we can prove it.”

The group stated they have come into possession of some highly classified documents that in their view, “will bring the Obama Administration down.” They were not bluffing; they provided the first installments of official classified documents which we provided in some of our previous reporting. “The rest,” they say, “will be provided when Mitt Romney is in office. His election is our only hope for humanity,” they said.

These documents include evidence of highly sophisticated weaponry provided to jihadists which leads them to doubt that any solutions will take place under what they called “The Obama regime”.

We have come into the possession of an array of records obtained from top-level sources inside the Libyan government. They include passports of Al-Qaeda operatives and identifications of terrorists from many nations—Chad, Egypt and Pakistan to name a few—which are now all camped in Libya as they enter by crossing borders guarded and managed officially by what they called “government appointed Al-Qaeda leaders.”

This explains why the drafts of two letters on September 11th expressing worry that the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was under ‘troubling’ surveillance and that the Libyan government failed to fulfill requests for additional security. “It wasn’t failure,” these pro-U.S. agents said, “but the Libyan government’s mafia-like system, subordinate to Al-Qaeda and installed with the blessings of the Obama administration that is responsible for the deaths of Americans in Benghazi,” they said.

The wealth of intelligence includes countless documents, which we will soon turn over to the National Center For Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism. They show evidence of bribes [see image above] by the government to top-officials, weapons dealing, and bank siphoning by al-Qaeda operatives, to include copies of bank transactions that illustrate the subordination of the newly established Libyan government to Al-Qaeda. These included Bin Laden’s personal driver Sufyan Gammou and Abdul Wahhab Hassan Qayed, the brother of the recently assassinated Abu Yahya al-Libi. Qayed was officially put in charge of Libyan border control. This arrangement is responsible for the passage of large amounts of Al-Qaeda operatives into Libya.

In one classified document (see image above) it stated that, “…it was commissioned that Fadlallah Haran Musa is to head the centers of the National Security Fares in Barqa [east of Libya] and to also commission Khalid Atiyeh to be his assistant.” These two, according to our sources, are “Islamist operatives connected to Al-Qaeda.”

Sufyan Gammu of Ansar Al-Sharia in Darnah (white cap and long beard) is one of the most wanted men from Al-Qaeda. He used to be the special driver for Usama Bin Laden and is now roaming free in Libya, protected by the government.

Salem Al-Barrani Dirbi of Al-Qaeda is now the leader of Abu Salim Martyrs Brigade, which was kept in check by the previous regime, spoke openly in this video (wearing blue), telling his story about how he is now free from the previous regime after having lived in hiding in the mountains since 1996; he boasts about living freely in Benghazi today.

Also noteworthy is Abdul Baset Azzouz. Known for his vicious and cunning abilities, he was the first adviser to Ayman Al-Zawahiri and became the leader of Al-Qaeda in Darnah, Libya. He can be seen in this video, giving his testimony from Libya (wearing yellow). Azzouz can even be seen recruiting entire communities in Libya to join the jihadists.

Then you have Abdul Hakim Al-Hassadi (above), member of the Jama’at Islamiyeh fighting forces in Libya, who left in 1995 out of fear of the previous Gaddafi regime. He fled to Afghanistan where he stayed until he returned in 2011, with the blessings of the Obama administration and NATO forces.

Al-Hassadi was accompanied by Muftah Al-Dawadi (above), who was an inmate in Abu Salim for his membership in Al-Qaeda after carrying out terrorist operations in Sibrata; he has now become the main conduit to facilitate the production of false travel documents for terrorists.

Perhaps most troubling is Abdul Wahhab Hassan Qayed, the brother of Abu Bakr Hassan Qayed (aka Abu Yahya al-Libi), the number 2 man in Al-Qaeda who was killed by U.S. drones. In the photo above, Wahhab is seen to the right and his now deceased brother to the left. Abdul Wahhab now works in the Libyan Interior Ministry in charge of Border Control and Strategic Institutions in Libya.

There is also Sami Mustafa Khalil Al-Sa’di (above), who obtained his degree in Sharia from Pakistan in 1999. He is now a member of The Assembly of Scholars in Libya after being released from Abu Salim prison on August 20th, 2011 for his membership in Al-Qaeda. He currently holds the position of Guardian of The Martyrs Families in Libya.


We also have Sadik Belhaj (on the left in photo) and Al-Sadeek Al-Ghaythi (on the right) – leaders of Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and formerly close associates of Bin Laden – in charge of border security who were given large sums of money to create a special, separate force outside of the government’s reach by the ministry of defense and by what the Obama administration considers to be a moderate leader, Abdul Hakim Belhaj, who recently broke his silence on Radio Darnah on the Samir Shalwi program one day after Stevens was killed, according to pro-Qaddafi dissidents whose claims (here and here). This appearance was also confirmed by Congressman Mike Rogers.

On the program, Belhaj allegedly said the following:

“I am indeed a member of the fighting in Jemmah Islamiyah; I’m proud of it; I will not deny that. For this, I have spent the best years of my life in the prisons, under torture and I’m still a member of this group. I will not give up on its edicts. Everyone must know this in the West, before the East. I’ve committed Jihad operations in all parts of the globe from Morrocco to Yemen to Somalia to Algeria, even to Afghanistan and Pakistan. I give great respect to Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahri and to the first teacher, Abu Musaab al-Zarkawi. I was saddened when Hassan al-Qaidi in Pakistan was martyred. Me and my brothers Sheikh Khalid al-Sharif, Sheikh Al-Mahdi, Al-Haradi, Sheikh Hassem, Baher, Abdul Rauf, Karah have formed a committee in Tripoli and we will not allow any foreigner, no matter who he is, to dictate what we do. We give thanks to the Mujahed, Sheikh Ismail al-Salabi, for his daring proclamation to the Darnah television station and we tell him that we are with you in every word you spoke, that there is no place for America, Great Britain, and all the West in Libya. Libya is a nation of Islam and Jihad. The light of Islam will shine forth from it despite the noses of everyone. The weapons are here and the Mujahideen from every corner of the earth are here with us and we have all the weaponry – that was prohibited before – with us now. We will not hesitate to use it against anyone who touches the land of Libya and that is the end of this discussion.”

The weapons Belhaj (above) spoke about were referenced in a document Obama signed in March of 2011, a secret order known as a Presidential “finding” that authorized support for the rebel jihadism, which now could easily include an additional 20,000 missiles in Libya. According to our sources who were in Libya, the numbers are tenfold: “The Russian ambassador in Libya informed us its really 200,000 missiles.”

The Washington Post also reported:

“It’s almost a certitude that at least part” of the Libyan opposition includes members of al-Qaeda, said Bruce Riedel, a former senior CIA analyst and adviser to President Obama. Riedel said that anti-Gaddafi elements in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi have had “very close associations with al-Qaeda” dating back years….I would hope that we now have a good sense of the opposition in Libya and can say that this is 2 percent, not 20 percent,” Riedel said. “If we don’t, then we are running the risk of helping to bring to power a regime that could be very dangerous.”

 

Several documents officially tie Belhaj to the leadership in Libya, to the support of him by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, to his funding of the rebels in Syria, and more. As we reported previously, Belhaj is a known terrorist who was also in U.S. custody at Guantanamo. The Obama administration allowed him into Libya during the war to oust Gaddafi.

Obama seemed to have no objection to Belhaj’s leadership position after the revolution. The classified documents reveal that Belhaj actually controls most of the Libyan government, which are puppets under the control of the Islamists. The Obama administration is knowingly supporting Al-Qaeda control in Libya and North Africa.

We have even obtained Belhaj’s fraudulent passport (pictured above right) as well as a document showing one of his smuggling operations of 16 kilos of gold (above left), which was seized by the Turkish government at the Istanbul Airport. This letter from Belhaj, includes his appeal to the Turkish government to return 16 kilos of gold seized when his runner was making a connecting flight to Qatar to fund Jihadists. According to our sources, the gold was ultimately returned, successfully arrived in Qatar, and was used to fund the rebels in Syria.

Salem Al-Shaykhi (above) is another who was released from Abu Salim prison after serving two years (1986-1988) for his Al-Qaeda affiliation. Now, the Libyan government has appointed him as head of the Islamic Waqf.

Recent photos (click each to enlarge) of armed vehicles of Al-Qaeda operatives in Darnah city say it all (translations of Arabic signs / banners beneath each photo):

(Abu Salim Martyrs Brigade – Yes to Sharia, no to corrupt secularists)

(Democracy is a western system that goes against Islam)

(Islam embracing Democracy is like Islam embracing Christianity)

(Libya is Muslim, our people are muslim, and Islam needs to rule them)

(Our life is our Sharia)

A West Point study identifies Darnah as:

“…the corridor which goes from Benghazi to Tobruk… which represents one of the greatest concentrations of jihadi terrorists to be found anywhere in the world, and by some measures can be regarded as the leading source of suicide bombers anywhere on the planet. Darnah, with one terrorist fighter sent into Iraq to kill Americans for every 1,000 to 1,500 persons of population, emerges as suicide bomber heaven, easily surpassing the closest competitor, which was Riyad, Saudi Arabia.”

The Al-Qaeda support coming from the newly installed governments is not only in Libya, but in Tunisia as well, as one report reveals (translated from Arabic):

“The entire region, including Tunisia, is falling to al-Qaeda and its supporters. The U.S. Ambassador to Tunisia met with Sibsi and showed him documents that convict them of financial dealings in weapons to support terrorism in Asia and North Africa. Ambassador said he would turn documents over to the ICC, showing they were attempting to liquidate political opposition by using the Justice system. Fingers are pointing to Justice Minister Nurdeen Bahiri.”

This is the typical modus operandi in which terrorist groups join al-Qaeda. The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), which has been led by Abdel Hakim Belhaj, had an increasingly cooperative relationship with al-Qaeda. The two groups officially joined together in 2007, the same year Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri referred to Belhaj as a ‘brother’.

It is high time that America learns about the Libyan Islamist rebel regime, which is claimed by Obama to represent a democratic and humanitarian alternative to Gaddafi; that is utterly false. As the West Point study reports:

“Today, it is clear that the United States is providing modern weapons for the Libyan rebels through Saudi Arabia and across the Egyptian border with the active assistance of the Egyptian army and of the newly installed pro-US Egyptian military junta. This is a direct violation of UN Security Council resolution 1973, which calls for a complete arms embargo on Libya.”

Our contacts provided photos of genetic mutations caused by such weapons. The victims of these crimes against humanity include women who are treated at rape centers and are the targets of an official order by religious leaders that bans women from travel unattended. An imaged copy of the edict (pictured above) from the official Libyan Mufti Sadeq Abdul Rahman Al-Ghiriany reads:”Women are not allowed travel without a consort… either by plane or in a car.” This document also has the official seal of the transitional government.

Appointing Libyan fighters to oust Qaddafi was akin to appointing the same individuals with the same ideology as Al-Qaeda. That ideology was established by the fighting groups that were involved in the Afghan-Russian war. It was these groups that were aided by NATO forces and supported by the Obama administration, which wanted the removal of the Gaddafi regime.

According to West Point authors Joseph Felter and Brian Fishman, Saudi Arabia was most prolific when it came to sheer numbers of jihadis sent to combat the United States and other coalition members in Iraq during the time frame in question.

Yet, president Obama’s Wahhabist family in Kenya sends recruits to the most virulent and extremist Wahhabi Sharia schools of theology in Saudi Arabia known to produce terrorists while illegally using president Obama’s name to raise the necessary funds from the United States, all under the false pretense that these funds go to help AIDS victims and other humanitarian efforts. This is an ironclad case, which includes the testimony of Musa Ismail Obama (Barack’s cousin), that the Obama Empire extended its influence all over Africa and Saudi Arabia, strictly to expand Islamic extremism across the globe.

With the utter silence from the western mainstream media, history will definitely record the United States’ Middle Eastern influence in the halls of shame.

Today, Libya is in a state complete anarchy. There is no law and order, militias and gangs of terrorists control the cities. The Government of Libya installed by Obama is Al-Qaeda. The perpetrators of the 9/11/01 attacks are now in control of the largest oil-producing nation in Africa and Obama handed it to them. Al-Qaeda resided in 2 countries before Obama became president. It now resides in 30 countries and totally owns one – among the richest of all – LIBYA.

We have been presented with an op-ed from a one Mustafa Elzaidi, Former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs in Libya and have posted here for review:

    One item missing from all of the reports is the Gaza connection. So many believe that the whole Benghazi debacle was allowed to occur to conceal Obama’s gunrunning to the rebels of Syria. Not so. The rebels are being well supplied by multiple sources. The CIA/Stevens was involved in the Syrian connection, Obama’s plan was to divert that supply line to Hamas that they might use those weapons against Israel. The following link is my latest essay on the topic. The second is a compilation of those essays.

    The Israeli connection with Zionist CIA mercenaries Al Qaeda is certain, evidenced by the fact that the Israelis have established a military base in Libya in an agreement with the Al Qaeda run Libyan National Transitional Council.

    The current Zionist-controlled NATO and Al Qaeda have together installed the criminal Israeli proxy CNT of course.

    http://www.ennaharonline.com/en/news/6564.html

    “According to a document written in Hebrew, an agreement has been signed between Israel and the National Transitional Council (CNT) in Benghazi, Libya, concerning the creation of a Zionist military base in the Jebel Akhdar region, for a period of thirty years in case they come to power.”

    So the ever-expanding Eretz Israel now has Libya too, with the blessings of Obama then, and that is no surprise.

    The Saudi Arabian Wahhabi Donmeh Jewish government installed by the British in 1915, constantly supplies terrorists to serve the Israeli NWO cause to secure Jewish world domination, by continually organizing agent provocateur situations using crypto-Jewish agents posing as Muslims.

    http://www.shoah.org.uk/2012/08/20/jewish-control-of-saudi-arabia/

    The statement of evidence contained in this article, repeated below, concerning Obama’s Wahhabist family is indeed a bombshell, and is further evidence of his connections to the Jewish struggle for world domination.

    “Yet, president Obama’s Wahhabist family in Kenya sends recruits to the most virulent and extremist Wahhabi Sharia schools of theology in Saudi Arabia known to produce terrorists while illegally using president Obama’s name to raise the necessary funds from the United States, all under the false pretense that these funds go to help AIDS victims and other humanitarian efforts.”

    Marxist Obama continues to secure Jewish world domination.

    They want us not to oppose Socialism and Communism, as in the WWII allied alliance with Soviet Russia, and tell us that ‘Socialism’ is for ‘everyone’. But Socialism is only intended to be shared between members of the Jewish Tribe.

    In the January and February 1849 issues of his journal ‘Neue Rheinische Zeitung’, Karl Marx published articles calling for the extermination of whole races in Europe. “The chief mission of all other races and peoples, large and small, is to perish in the revolutionary holocaust”.

    Rabbi Stephen Wise said in 1935: “Some call it Marxism …, I call it Judaism.”

    Baruch Levy, Letter to Karl Marx, ‘La Revue de Paris’, p.574, June 1, 1928 Reproduced from the French National Library:

    “The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.

    In this New World Order the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.”

The Real October Surprise: ‘Benghazigate’

By RORY COHEN / Register columnist

No election, it seems, is complete without an 11th-hour revelation. Late last month, celebrity attorney Gloria Allred and business magnate Donald Trump promised political bombshells. It turns out neither had an “October surprise” impactful enough to influence the course of the election.

There is, however, another potential October surprise – one that’s certainly no joke but that has received inadequate attention. And, with the massive destruction left by Hurricane Sandy, the mainstream media is likely to continue ignoring a subject that they already felt warranted little coverage anyway – at least until after the election.

It took more than a month for President Barack Obama to take personal, albeit qualified, responsibility for security failures at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, following initial contradictory reports which blamed an obscure YouTube video for the Sept. 11 attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. In speaking days ago to to MSNBC, Mr. Obama said, “There was a big breakdown, and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable.”

In reality, he has provided no real answers and his administration has attempted to field blame – with prominent Democrats arguing Republicans have “politicized” the attack. But as Reagan took responsibility for actions that were taken by individuals within his administration during the Iran-Contra Affair – of which he was unaware – so should have Obama for the Libya attack, especially as it now appears his administration was aware that what transpired was indeed well-coordinated radical Islamic terrorism.

“‘Benghazigate’ is about the entire Obama policy towards national security, the perception of the threat and how to handle the Middle East,” Dr. Walid Phares, an advisor to the Anti-Terrorism Caucus of the U.S. House of Representatives, said in an interview. “The initial mistake made by the Obama Administration was to fail to identify that the Jihadist threat embodied by al Qaeda, the Taliban and other affiliated terror groups in the world was essentially originating from an ideology. By disregarding the ideological identification the Obama Administration, since 2009, lost its ability to detect the mounting threat, and at the same time to identify the potential allies in the Arab and Muslim world.”

Early administration reports vehemently condemned an obscure YouTube video, possibly the reason it was even brought to the attention of would-be protesters in Pakistan, Indonesia, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Tunisia, Morocco, and elsewhere in the Middle East and Asia. Suggestions of bad intelligence have also been made, particularly from Ambassador Susan Rice and Vice President Joe Biden. A newly released CIA timeline shows that the CIA made an initial rescue attempt and likely relied too heavily on the Libyan government to keep Americans safe. This hints at a different series of events, although still distressing, than from earlier reports suggesting that requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the embassy attack were denied both during and after the attack on the US consulate. The new CIA timeline makes it very hard – impossible even – to believe that the administration was unaware the attack was well-coordinated.

The Obama administration failed to prevent the attack, ignoring requests for extra security made by slain Ambassador Christopher Stevens himself. Obama’s foreign policy platform in the reelection bid is firmly embedded in Bin Laden’s killing – the masterstroke of his four years in office.

“The problem is that the Obama Administration has argued that by killing Osama Bin Laden “al Qaeda has gone into decline. The reality is that al Qaeda is an ideological movement, once leaders are killed they are replaced, as was the case with Bin Laden or al Awlaki,” said Dr. Phares, whose expertise is in global terrorism and Middle East affairs. “Bin Laden didn’t create al Qaeda, Jihadism did. Bin Laden didn’t write the foundation of this ideology, he used it to recruit.”

Charles Woods, the father Tyrone Woods, a former Navy SEAL working at the consulate as a security contractor, told The Blaze that he felt President Obama was not sorry for what transpired. “Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye, his eyes were over my shoulder,” he said. Recounting meeting these officials at a ceremony for the victims at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, Mr. Woods recalled an exchange with Hillary Clinton in which she told him the US would “make sure the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.” The film, in this case, is the aforementioned YouTube video initially blamed for instigating the attack. “When she said that, I could tell that she was not telling me the truth,” Woods said about Clinton.

Phares argues that had the Obama administration initially admitted the assault in Benghazi was al Qaeda-linked terrorism, in which the terror group Ansar al-Sharia almost immediately claimed responsibility, it would have opened a Pandora’s box ahead of the election. “By admitting this was terrorism and al Qaeda-related one pillar of the Obama platform on national security collapses,” said Dr. Phares. “How come the Administration didn’t know the Jihadist militias were around? And even further, why would these militias be omnipresent in the wake of Gaddafi’s death? And beyond this point, reports are appearing about this Jihadi militia arming other Jihadi militias in the region, as in Syria.”

Youtube Video Maker Nakoula Had Jihadist Ties

“ANTI-MUSLIM MOVIEMAKER MAY HAVE JIHADIST TIES”

The following are excerpts from and article by David Isaac
October 8, 2012 – The Washington Times

http://times247.com/articles/98what-if-that-youtube-video-was-a-muslim-set-up3

“…video was a hoax designed to spark the huge outpouring of Muslim rage that it did.” – Walid Shoebat

“He [Salameh] hates Copts with a passion and he would never deal with Copts, and here he’s dealing with Copts,” Shoebat said of his cousin’s involvement with Nakoula. “All my life he talked about how he hated the Copts. What was he doing in bed with a Copt? … It just doesn’t add up.”

“The converse is also true. Why would an Islam-hating Copt (Nakoula said “Islam is a cancer” in his interview with the Wall Street Journal) partner with a Copt-hating Muslim?”

“Regarding the YouTube video, Shoebat says, “There is a probability, a very high probability, that this was a terrorist set-up. We can’t be 100 percent sure but we can say there is reasonable doubt for the narrative we hear in the media.” In other words, the video may have been a kind of Islamist agitprop designed to incite Muslim anger against the West.”

“It would not be the first time. There is a history in the Muslim world of manufacturing false images to stir up Muslim outrage. For example, there is the case of Mohammed al-Dura, a Palestinian Arab boy filmed as he was apparently shot by Israeli soldiers. The film became a rallying cry against Israel but later proved to be a hoax. It is only the most prominent example of what has become a small industry known as Pallywood in which phony atrocities are enacted to put Israel in the dock.”

“The question may be asked, would Muslims go so far as to create images insulting to Mohammed? The events surrounding the dissemination of the infamous cartoons published in a Danish newspaper in September 2005 suggest that they would. Those cartoons went unnoticed until Islamic groups in Denmark circulated a dossier in the Muslim world containing the 12 offending cartoons. Importantly, the dossier included three additional cartoons which were, in fact, far more insulting. One, a picture of a French pig-squealing contestant that the dossier represented as standing for Mohammed, had nothing to do with the prophet when it was originally published. The dossier sparked protests and violence across the Middle East, resulting in a 100 deaths and the bombing of the Danish Embassy in Pakistan.

A clue to the mystery might be sitting in plain view on YouTube. The account of Sam Bacile, the pseudonym Nakoula used to post “Innocence of Muslims,” lists only one “favorite”: a video on Al Nour Party TV (the link was removed Oct. 4, itself an interesting development). The Al Nour Party is a Salafi party in Egypt with an ultra-conservative Islamist ideology that advocates implementing strict Shariah law. Why would Nakoula, who claims to be a Copt who despises Islam to the point where he makes a film deriding Mohammed, list as his only YouTube “favorite” a video of an ultrareligious Islamist party that seeks Shariah law?”

What Obama Knew, When He Knew It
And What He Was Thinking

September 30, 2012
– Frank Newman

It has come to light that there were multiple requests by US Military, to the Obama Administration, for added security in Benghazi, which were repeatedly denied!

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/10/02/Issa-Calls-For-Libya-Hearings

******************************************

Also, it was revealed that the reason the Obama Administration did not want armed security at the Libyan Consulate (God forbid), was because they wanted to avoid any deaths (of only terrorists apparently) before the election, because that might lead to a loss of votes from their Liberal-base.

Libya Crisis – The Real Questions – September 30th 2012

Why Would A Muslim Create The Anti-Muslim “Film”
Innocence of Muslims?

September 30, 2012
– Frank Newman

The question still being asked is: Is Obama and his Administration covering-up the fact that they knew that the attack on the Libyan Embassy was carried-out by terrorists?

The questions should first be:

a.)  At what point did the Obama Administration actually know that terrorists carried out the attack in Benghazi?

b.)  Did they in fact know that the terrorists were planning the attack before it took place?

c.)   If that is the case, above all, why did they not provide the necessary security to fend-off such an attack?

d.)  And also then, why would Obama still go on to reference “the video” seven times, during his speech at the U.N. on September 25, 2012, insisting that the video and the mentality behind it are solely responsible for the Libyan massacre?

Of course, that last question seems as though it would be easy enough to address, but for the fact that the White House and State Department had indeed been informed, at least 14 days beforehand, that al Qaeda affiliated terrorists had carried-out the attack5, as al Qaeda declared that the assault was executed in revenge for a US drone strike in June, that killed their organization’s number two leader, Abu Yahya al-Libi6.

This article aims to show how the Obama Administration had prior knowledge of the attack in Benghazi, and that they also intentionally suppressed that knowledge as well as their knowledge of who was truly responsible for it.

Furthermore, this article will clearly show, based upon the evidence, how the Obama Administration blamed the Innocence of Muslims video for the attack in Benghazi, so as to thereby assign to Obama’s political opposition the same mentality as might appear to be behind the video’s production. That is, the Obama Administration intended to lead others, particularly American voters, to believe that whoever created that video, as well as anyone even remotely aligned with him (in this case, allegedly Right-wing Conservative fanatics, Christians and/or Jews) were ultimately responsible for the atrocity.

In other words, the whole narrative that “the video, and the kind of intolerant, Rightwing, Christian or Jewish or Secular fanatics that it’s creator claimed to align himself with, are alone responsible for the attack”, is merely a red herring, a decoy, a bold attempt to peddle disinformation and is the epitome of Leftist propaganda.3

Consider the following from TheSmokingGun.com:
SEPTEMBER 14–In remarks stressing that the U.S. government had “absolutely nothing to do with” the anti-Islam film that has touched off violence in the Middle East, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton yesterday sought to quash Arab concerns that the “disgusting and reprehensible” movie was somehow produced or condoned by American officials. [Note: Nakoula, the creator of the video, never suggested or implied to anyone that the US government was in any way responsible for the film, but he did allege that Jews were responsible for it - a charge that the Madam Secretary (for reasons that may soon become more clear) conspicuously chose not to repudiate.]

However, Clinton’s attempt to distance the U.S. from “Innocence of Muslims”–and, by extension, its felonious producer–may be complicated by the revelation that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula became a government informant after his 2009 arrest for bank fraud…”

Though many key documents from the U.S. District Court case remain sealed, a June 2010 sentencing transcript[1] provides an account of Nakoula’s cooperation with federal investigators in Los Angeles (and how his prison sentence was reduced as a result).

Nakoula, 55, was arrested in June 2009 for his role in a check-kiting ring that stole nearly $800,000 from six financial institutions by using stolen Social Security numbers and identities.  Nakoula was named in a six-count felony indictment accusing him and unnamed “co-schemers” of perpetrating the bank fraud.

 

[Sentenced and] Denied bail, Nakoula, a married father of three, was locked up at the Metropolitan Detention Center in L.A. when he began cooperating with Justice Department lawyers and federal agents. During a series of debriefing sessions[1], Nakoula provided investigators with a detailed account of the fraud operation and fingered the man who allegedly headed the operation, according to comments made by his lawyer at sentencing.

Nakoula identified the ring’s leader as Eiad Salameh [Walid Shoebat’s cousin2], a notorious fraudster who has been tracked for more than a decade by state and federal investigators. In his debriefings, Nakoula said he was recruited as a “runner” by Salameh, who pocketed the majority of money generated by the bank swindles, according to James Henderson, Nakoula’s attorney. [This claim by Nakoula is summarily rejected by Eiad’s cousin Walid Shoebat.2]

In return for Nakoula’s cooperation, prosecutors provided Snyder with a letter noting that his substantial assistance to authorities warranted a sentence reduction.

In our analysis of this situation, we must keep in mind that there are literally hundreds of billions of dollars on the line, which the Left is convinced it has the right to access, to further squeeze from taxpayers and to control. Obama, along with an extensive, global network of Leftwing politicians, activists and financiers, are desperate to gain absolute control, amidst what has turned-out to be a MUCH tighter race for the Presidency of the United States, than what they had anticipated running (not that, if it looked like a landslide for them, they would suddenly all back-off and begin operating above-board).

So, Obama and his cohorts, including the Left-controlled, Mainstream Media, are simply very desperate to win him re-election at this point. However, for this article to be worthy of serious consideration, it must also be established that the same people are also more than willing to lie to the American people, to achieve that end.

Of course, that could easily be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt (not merely alleged), by literally hundreds of documented instances, so, it will not be the focus of this article.11

Now, in studying the lengths to which the desperate man will go, in order to get what he must have, when he is also clearly not averse to lying, we must recognize that lying is always foundational to his every plan, and furthermore, that knowing exactly how to lie – so that it seems true or is almost impossible for the average person to believe is a lie – is of paramount importance. And if he is to be a “successful” liar, then all of that necessitates his absolute mastery of appearing to be at-ease, confident and trustworthy, along with a kind of “aw-shucks, I’m just a regular-guy” type of feigned humility, especially while lying.

Every “good” liar lives and dies by these tenants… Just look at the character traits and behavioral patterns of those whom we know have been the best liars of all time – President Bill Clinton is actually a textbook example of this.

As was understood by Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, the master liar must recognize that the average person will simply refuse to believe that someone, in whom they trust, could lie (especially where the lie would result in certain “collateral damage”). In other words, most people simply can’t believe anyone they know could be capable of such depravity, and this is mainly because they don’t believe that they themselves could be. The problem is, they somehow forget how there most certainly have been people throughout history who have proven to be precisely that most despicable kind of liar, and how, for instance, during WWII, millions of German citizens who supported Hitler, could not have been all that different from themselves. And because they all simply failed to recognize that what Hitler was selling was so utterly depraved and they bought-into it, history would also remember them as such – completely devoid of any, inner moral compass – right alongside the Nazis. However, in truth, it did not make them monsters, like the Nazis; it simply made them tools… Now, most of us, looking back, can see how that was certainly bad enough, and hopefully we also recognize exactly why and how such an unimaginable lapse of collective judgement absolutely must be avoided in the future.

The Master Liar however, relies upon the fact that the average person tends to trust others at their word, and that, when someone else seems sincere, it is much easier for most people to simply trust them, rather than remain guarded or on-alert. (Note: Of course, it is an added benefit to the liar that Western society also now tends to encourage people to employ the more passive, warm-and-fuzzy approach, while generally frowning upon the guarded, cautious, “trust but verify” alternative way of living… But however important it may be for us to see how and why that notion is based upon a fundamental confusion between what would be a “perfect world” and the real one in which we live, it is a separate discussion, for another arena.)

We also must acknowledge that Barack Obama, the person, has always been plagued with certain insecurities: He had no stable father figure throughout his childhood and teen years, and even by his own admissions, largely due to that void in his life, he has often felt conflicted and confused, just as he has also admitted that he has felt both insecure about his identity among “Black folk” and indeed ashamed that he was half-White.

It appears that as a result, Barack Obama now spends most of his energy struggling to appear at ease, trustworthy and compassionate, at least while in the limelight. One need only read a few random pages of either of his two books to recognize what amounts to this unfortunate character flaw in the man and to understand his misguided attempts to over-compensate for the demons of his past. Notwithstanding, he has obviously yet to overcome them, as evidenced by his deceitful/duplicitous record, and so, forged by the denial of it all, he has fallen under the control of those demons, just as is so often the tragic result of the selfish and unnecessary abandonment of a father in anyone’s life.

When we are unable to overcome our insecurities with true courage, then we look for whatever ways might allow us to fit-in; even to the extreme of doing things like changing our name, so that we might be more accepted in the circles we believe will support us most. This is because what we really want is to feel accepted, valued, admired and loved – all of those most important things that both fathers and mothers provide for their children… or they are at least meant to. It is an emotionally driven need for the acceptance and love and admiration – that we feel we never got quite enough of – that insecurities always create in us and that Barry Sotero (Obama) was and always has been looking to satisfy. And it all really began as he was living-out a kind of little brother/apprentice role to Marxist radicals like Frank Marshall Davis17 and terrorists like Bill Ayers18, during the tumultuous, “liberated” 1970s, when he was first exposed to the anti-colonialist, anti-American, redistributive, Islamist ideologies that he now either proudly or clandestinely represents and defends.

So, with all of that in mind and in light of the fact that Barack Obama and many others are equally desperate to keep him in the White House (so that he can continue pushing-through the far-Left agenda), it behooves the rest of us to ask ourselves a few questions regarding this Libya crisis/“cover-up”…

Again, why would Obama point to the Nakoula video seven times (inferring that the mentality behind it is solely responsible for the Libyan massacre) during his speech at the U.N. on September 25, 2012, when the White House and State Department had learned, at least 14 days before, that terrorists connected to al Qaeda had claimed full responsibility for the attack and had even provided their rationale for it6, not to mention there was not one shred of evidence or one eye-witness account to corroborate the assertion that the video caused the attack?

To completely answer that question, it is necessary to point-out how the approach taken by the Obama Administration, was straight from the teachings of Cloward & Piven9  and also Saul Alinsky7, while falling right in-line with the famous quote by Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel (in 2009) – “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.”8

And with all of the above in mind, it should be obvious that Obama and his cohorts desperately want him re-elected and, true-to-form, they recognized this Libya crisis as a golden opportunity to place the blame for the attack squarely in the lap of his political opposition, namely “those evil, intolerant, Right-wing, Conservative, Christians and Jews” etc.

It was the perfect plan…

Seize a crisis, or create one9, or in this case simply allow one to happen, and then turn it into an opportunity that would easily sweep them right back into the White House! The truth is, it was not only a crisis, but a terrible tragedy that the Obama Administration could have easily averted, had they heeded the repeated pleas from Ambassador Stevens, for heightened security12.

The above questions must be asked, and the subsequent conclusions reached (as delineated), and they also simply cannot be dismissed, based upon logic or in light of the preponderance of evidence.

Needless to say, this is a matter requiring an independent investigative task force.

 

Now, aside from the questions above, there are others, which, when cobbled together, the answers seem bit less obvious or are perhaps a bit more difficult to ascertain, but they are of no less importance and are as potentially incriminating.

For example:

Why would anyone create or promote a film filled with hatred for Muslims?

Because either they hate Muslims or because they want to make it look like someone else hates Muslims.

But why would anyone want to make it appear that someone else hates Muslims?

To lead others to believe that that person, and his or her ideology and affiliations, are to blame for certain violent acts allegedly perpetrated by outraged Muslims, in retaliation.

In the case of what transpired in Benghazi, on September 11, 2012, the Obama Administration somehow chose to immediately blame a thirteen-minute-long video (which is actually merely a trailer for Innocence of Muslims) for the targeted, brutal massacre of four American citizens there… without a shred of actual evidence linking the video to the attack. And, as if that wasn’t crazy enough, the creator of the video who first claimed to be a Right-wing, Copt Christian, anti-Muslim fanatic, who then claimed to be a Jew and Israeli citizen (which, according to the Israeli government, is a lie), was quickly identified as such by the Obama Administration (and every Left-wing news outlet), before he later claimed, in an Egyptian television interview, to be Secularist2!

To put it simply… Mr. Nakoula was messing up “the plan”. Everything had been falling into place so nicely… just as everyone behind the plan had hoped. The Mainstream Media was very much on-board, deftly disseminating the story about how the video caused the attack etc. as if it was Gospel, of course making sure to lace each story with bits of truth, to convince anyone who might happen to be teetering on the edge. It was poling very well too. People were buying it, hook-line-and-sinker… just as they always did. Yes, there were a few rough edges, but those could always be smoothed-over, in time…

And then of course, there was “the gift” – Mitt Romney spoke-out about the manner in which the Obama Administration was handling the whole affair. It wasn’t much; but of course the Left never needed much. They immediately knew they could cry “foul” and have the full force of the Media come down on Romney, about how he was “disrespecting the President” in the midst of a crisis and how he was “politicizing” a tragic event etc. etc., thus gingerly diverting the attention of the public, and even a the few of the more serious news outlets, away from the crisis itself, specifically the question of why there was no security at the consulate on the anniversary of 9-11, when, for months leading up to it, they had been forewarned of a growing al Qaeda threat!12 And of course, that is exactly what the Media did: With charges of, “before the bodies were even cold”20 etc., as if anyone, (especially one seeking the Office of the President of the United States) should have waited for a minute to express their outrage about the senseless and completely avoidable slaughter of the four innocent Human Beings and how the Obama Administration was actually apologizing to those responsible, rather than flatly condemning the atrocity.

That reaction by the Left – attempting to demonize Romney while defending Obama’s apology for the video (which they made sure remained the front page news story for well-over a week) – supports the assertion that the Obama Administration desperately wanted to convince the American public of the validity of its claim that the video was the sole cause of the attack.

 

Then there is the question of, why, if Nakoula is actually a Muslim2, would a he create a cartoonish anti-Muslim film?

Answer: In order to further the cause of Islam.

But, how could an anti-Muslim film possibly help further the cause of Islam?

In truth it ultimately could not, but that is not what Nakoula believed. He believed that by making sure that the film was obviously not at all a serious work (which may actually be the understatement of the millennium), while also making sure that it was offensive to Muslims, to thereby stir-up widespread hatred towards whoever was said to be responsible for it…  his own jihadist mission would be accomplished. All he had to do was go about creating an identity (which he could probably do in his sleep – see below) that matched that which made him appear to be a Jew, perhaps even an Israeli citizen, and/or a Copt Christian (to maybe get the Egyptian Muslims riled-up) and then follow that up with a claim that he was actually a Secularist (to implicate the entire non-religious population of the world, but most importantly, of the U.S.).

“The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it.” – Joseph Goebbels

You see, if Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, was good at anything, he was definitely good at identity fraud, making-up alises and posing as someone he was not2. The following are just a few of the  aliases we know of, that he has used: Matthew Nekola; Ahmed Hamdy; Amal Nada; Daniel K. Caresman; Sobhi Bushra; Robert Bacily; Thomas J. Tanas; Abanob Basseley Nakoula; Sam Bacile; Mark Basseley Youseff; Kritbag Difrat; Erwin Salameh; Nicola Bacily; Yousseff M. Basseley; Malid Ahlawi; and even P.J. Tobacco (during a cigarette smuggling stint, believe it or not).2 & 19

Note: Nakoula is actually a known (and long sought after, by the FBI) anti-American and Muslim Extremist, not to mention wanted, but for reasons yet to be fully understood, he has never been made to answer for all of his known criminal activity. The truth is, Nakoula has carried-out fraud schemes involving welfare, social security, credit cards, banks, check-kiting, PCP & Methamphetamine manufacture and dealing, warehouses, contraband and possibly, along with Eiad Salameh, buying Infamil milk (for Seniors) from the government and reselling it at a mark-up to a branch of Stater Bros. (a super market chain) run by Middle Easterners.

That is only a partial list of all of Nakoula’s many unscrupulous dealings that, along with Eiad Salameh2 and others, have bilked the American people out of literally millions of dollars… most of which was sent over seas to support various Middle Eastern terrorist organizations2, which are of course in the business of murdering innocent people.

The point being, no one was better qualified to represent himself as a Copt Christian or a Jew and even an Israeli citizen, than Mr. Nakoula Bassele Nakoula (believed to be is real name)2.

After decades of fooling everybody, with all of his name changes, Mr. Nakoula obviously thought he could convince whoever he wanted that he was in fact an Israeli citizen or a Copt Christian, or perhaps even Santa Clause, if he so pleased. That is, he had not anticipated that anyone would ever catch him at his name game… but of course, he had never tried it out on the world stage…

The truth is, Mr. Nakoula is a Muslim, through and through. It can easily be proven. In fact, the FBI knows it.

Ironically, by having created what is without a doubt the absolute, most pathetic film ever made, he has actually now established himself at the top of the heap, of all Muslim “heroes”. By way of his natural penchant for identity fraud, and with the help of Obama and the Left-wing Media, he has successfully “sparked” the rage of the entire Muslim world against a collective of not only Jews and Christians, but also of even “intolerant” Right-wing Secularists… all of whom are conveniently tied to America. Bada bing bada boom.

Now literally dozens of countries and millions of Muslims are up in arms and out for blood. Whose blood? Well, interestingly, and conveniently, the blood (both literally and figuratively) of those whom Obama and his cronies dislike most.

So, in one fell-swoop, whether or not Mr. Nakoula realizes it now (while sitting in his jail cell, reading his “Holy” Book2, likely provided to him courtesy of the American taxpayer) he has actually elevated himself among the most highly esteemed figures in Muslim history… since Mohammed himself set the no-holds-barred guidelines of Islamic jihad – spreading Islam and ridding the world of infidels.

But how could it be considered right for a Muslim to lie and cheat and steal and even murder for the cause of Islam?

The Muslim Extremists’ ace-in-the-hole is that their “Holy” Book makes it very clear that, in certain circumstances – i.e. wherever one might deem it somehow beneficial to Islam – lying or whatever else, is perfectly A-OK… as long as one’s heart isn’t really in it.4 Wink wink.

So, based on this convoluted sound-bite of Islamic doctrine, Mr. Nakoula is theoretically able to sleep like a baby at night, knowing that his movie, ostensibly about Mohamed, is not any kind of reflection on his own, truly devout Muslim heart; no, it’s just a little white lie… for Allah. While making the film, Nakoula had his fingers crossed, so to speak (without the Christian implication of course).

What is more, he has undoubtedly convinced himself that making and promoting the video actually fulfills his calling, as a Muslim, to do whatever he can to spread Islam and relieve the world of “infidels”, which of course, is affirmed by the violence and death perpetrated upon them as a result of his video (again with the help of Obama and the Leftwing Media), not to mention, that which has yet to be perpetrated because of it. So, if the justification that “lying, cheating, stealing and murdering is all OK, as long as it is for Islam” can be taken seriously, then not only is Nakoula sleeping like a baby, but he is also likely dreaming of the seventy-two virgins lined-up waiting for him.

 

Further Question regarding the Obama Administration and their approach to the Crisis:

Why would Obama possibly have announced so quickly, that the video was to blame for a mob riot around the Libyan Consulate, when in fact, there is absolutely no evidence that it was?

Does it therefore seem at least plausible that Obama and his cohorts had actually planned (prior to 9/11/12) to come out with the statement that the video would be the cause of the attack?

Again, why would Obama continue to claim, for as long as two weeks afterward, that Nakoula’s video was to blame for the attack, when he obviously had to have known, at least ever since a day or two following the event, that it clearly was not?

Could it be that Obama desperately wanted to believe that he and his Administration could still get away with a plan of convincing America and the rest of the world that it was a Rightwing, Copt Christian/Jew, anti-Muslim-fanatic video that was totally responsible for the massacre?

Could it also be that Obama doubled-down with the lie about the video being solely responsible for the attack, in order to distract from the fact that he refrained from providing the necessary security to the consulate, and to show the Muslim world that America is taking a more passive approach toward Muslim Extremists, on the anniversary of 9-11 and even after Ambassador Stevens had requested additional security?

With all of this in mind, and if it can be proven that Obama was complicit in a plan to allow the terrorist attack to occur, or at least offer no resistance to it, and to then place the blame for it on a video and the anti-Muslim, Right-wing Christians and/or Jews who are all somehow collectively responsible for it (which is completely untrue), then shouldn’t Obama be impeached and charged with high treason?

 

Questions regarding Nakoula and his rationale for making and promoting the video:

Why would any anti-Islam Christian or Jewish activist (as Nakoula first claimed to be) create a cartoonish and incendiary video about Mohammed (and then announce to the world that he – the creator of it – is a Copt Christian and/or a Jew etc.), knowing how that would certainly bring about great violence and destruction upon his own people? It makes zero sense,2  especially in light of the fact that Nakoula made it known that he was well-aware of how the Muslim world reacted to Salman Rushdie and Theo van Gogh. In other words, he admittedly knew that a film such as that which he was creating would do exactly what it has done (again, with the help of Obama and the Mainstream Media).

That is to say, it actually makes perfect sense that Nakoula, who is anything but anti-Muslim, knew that (with a little help) his video would bring about great harm upon the Jews, Christians and/or the Right wing Secularists of America, all of which, on separate occasions he boldly proclaimed (obviously lying through his teeth) that he, the creator of the video, was.

What Nakoula may or may not have known was that what certainly appears to be the Obama Administration’s “plan” to use him and the video to demonize their political opposition (whether months or only days in the making), could in fact succeed and thus lead to another four years of Obama in the White House.

 

A few more very serious points and questions:

Nakoula defended the Feds and insisted they were not involved in the film.

Hilary Clinton and also Barack Obama and many others have also repeatedly insisted that the US government had nothing to do with the video… “Methinks, [just maybe] thou doth protest too much…?”

Was this defense of the government perhaps Nakoula’s payment to them for their having allowed him to get away with decades of felony fraud, illegal activity and the funneling of millions of dollars to terrorist organizations?

Is it possible that the Obama Administration, having always relied so heavily upon propaganda and what they apparently believe is the unmatched power of visual Media (to elicit a desired emotional response in the viewer), did actually have something to do with the creation and promotion of the video, and is it possible that the video turned-out to be just what they had hoped for, because it showed such blatant disrespect for Muslims and could so easily be used to demonize anyone or any group that they could frame as being similarly unsympathetic to Muslims (namely anyone who might vote for a Republican)?

Is it plausible that Nakoula was creating the video for the very purpose that the Obama Administration had in mind for it, at some later date, whether that date was known or unknown? Is it possible that, in conjunction with Nakoula remaining an informant2, the video was requested of him, with the caveat that he would also simply work-up another identity – this time as a Rightwing Christian, Jew and/or Secularist (or all three), which the Media would be sure to make headline news, should everything go according to plan?

Is it also plausible that the video was even financed by the Feds, with the clever plan to later claim that “100 Jews” had financed it?

Is it plausible that the Obama administration, through the Feds, knew of Nakoula and his reputation, and so, chose him specifically as one who, with his proven capacity to pose as anyone they might wish, could thus provide them the germ for their plan… which again was to blame the Right for the attack in Benghazi and/or for Muslim mayhem in general?

Is it also possible that such a request, potentially made by the Feds, for Nakoula to create such a video, along with some fairly routine identity fraud, was not at all objectionable to Nakoula? In fact, is it possible that he was all to eager to get started because he saw that he and the Feds somehow, by way of their plan, actually seemed to have the very same end-goal in mind, i.e. to discredit and/or even destroy anti-Muslim, Rightwing Conservative Christians and Jews.

Nakoula was interrogated soon after the Benghazi attack, but was quickly released. During that interrogation he talked about how his “film” was funded by “100 Jews” or “100 Jewish families” (kinda like 72 virgins). Not 99 or 101, but “100” exactly. Of course, it would be worth at least trying to track them all down, so as to prove they never existed.

Is it also possible that said “interrogation” was actually more of a coaching session, carried-out by certain Federal Agents, in order to make sure that Nakoula provided all of the “right” answers to questions that the unsuspecting public would want to know, such as: What is your name? Who are you? Who do you work for? What groups do you associate with? Who funded the video production? Why did you make the film? What or who was your inspiration for it?

And finally…

On 9-12-12, only one day after the attack in Benghazi, in an interview, which Obama was no doubt informed would be aired roughly two weeks later, Obama told Steve Croft of 60 Minutes that the massacre was merely one of many “bumps in the road” that he had been supposedly anticipating. Many immediately recognized this as a glaring example of unconscionable callousness. Many did not.

For those who do see it as such, it simply further supports the possiblity that Obama had somehow already moved passed any mourning or real sadness about the violent and senseless deaths of the four innocent American men in Libya, which had happened just the day before. And this clearly shows that, if nothing else, Barack Obama is an unfathomably insensitive man, which is due either to a deep, individual character flaw, or to the fact that, in this case, at the time of the interview, he might have actually expected or hoped that when it was to air, the whole matter would be swept under the rug.

4.)   Islamic ace-in-the-hole: Lying is OK, if for the sake of Islam…

Islam permits lying! It is called “Al-taqiyya.”

The Qur’an:

Qur’an (16:106) – Yhere are circumstances that can “compel” a Muslim to tell a lie.

Qur’an (3:28) – This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to “guard themselves.”

Qur’an (9:3) – “…Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters…”  The dissolution of oaths with the pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture.

Qur’an (2:225) – “Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts”

Qur’an (66:2) – “Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths”

Qur’an (3:54) – “And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.”

The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means deceit.  If Allah is deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same.”

Thanks to your democratic laws we will invade you; thanks to our religious laws, we will dominate you.” – Islamic Cleric: Archbishop of Izmir

Muslim activists always quote the passages of the Qu’ran from the early part of Mohammed’s ministry while living in Mecca which exemplify tolerance towards those that are not followers of Islam. However, these passages were abrogated (cancelled and replaced) by passages that came after he migrated to Medina. The replacement verses reflect prejudice, intolerance, and endorse violence upon unbelievers.

It is imperative to understand that Muslims know that they can lie and then absolve themselves, because the lie was to further the cause of Islam. Also, what Muslim activists say to spread Islam may not always be the whole truth. That is, according to the Qu’ran, it is not what they say that is the real issue, but only what they truly believe in their hearts.

In the Quran, Allah, allegedly, says:

‘Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness (vain) in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts; and He is Oft-forgiving, Most Forbearing.’ Surah 2:225

‘Any one who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters Unbelief, except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith – but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty.’  Surah 16: 106

The noted Islamic commentator, Al-Tabary explained Surah 16:106 as a verse that had been revealed to Mohammed after he learned that Ammar Ibn Yasser was forced to deny his faith in Mohammed when kidnapped by the Banu Moghera tribe. Mohammed consoled Ammar by telling him, “If they turned, you turn.” (Meaning: if they again capture you, you are allowed to deny me again.)

These and similar passages from the Quran clearly reveal that Muslims’ unintentional lies are forgivable and that even their intentional lies can be absolved by performing extra duties. It is also clear that if forced to do so, Muslims can lie while under oath and can even falsely deny faith in Allah, as long as they maintain the profession of faith in their hearts.

In the Hadith, Mohammed, emphasizes the same concept. From ‘Ehiaa Oloum al-Din,’ by the famous Islamic scholar al-Ghazali, Vol. 3: PP.284-287:

One of Mohammed’s daughters, Umm Kalthoum, testified that she had never heard the Apostle of Allah condone lying, except in these three situations:

For reconciliation among people.
In war.
Amongst spouses, to keep peace in the family.

One passage from the Hadith quotes Mohammed as saying: ‘The sons of Adam are accountable for all lies except those uttered to help bring reconciliation between Muslims.’ Another says, ‘Aba Kahl, reconcile among people.’(Meaning: even through lying.)

The following quote demonstrates the broadness of situations in which the prophet permitted lying. ‘The sons of Adam are accountable for all lies with these exceptions: During war because war is deception, to reconcile among two quarreling men, and for a man to appease his wife.’

The principle of Al-Takeyya

The Arabic word, ‘Takeyya”, means “to prevent,’ or guard against. The principle of Al Takeyya conveys the understanding that Muslims are permitted to lie as a preventive measure against anticipated harm to one’s self or fellow Muslims. This principle gives Muslims the liberty to lie under circumstances that they perceive as life threatening. They can even deny the faith, if they do not mean it in their hearts. Al-Takeyya is based on the following Quranic verse:

‘Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution (prevention), that ye may Guard yourselves from them (prevent them from harming you.) But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah.’  Surah 3: 28

According to this verse a Muslim can pretend to befriend infidels (in violation of the teachings of Islam) and display adherence with their unbelief to prevent them from harming him.

Under the concept of Takeyya and short of killing another human being, if under the threat of force, it is legitimate for Muslims to act contrary to their faith. The following actions are acceptable:

Drink wine, abandon prayers, and skip fasting during Ramadan.
Renounce belief in Allah.
Kneel in homage to a deity other than Allah.
Utter insincere oaths.

The implications of the principle of Al-Takeyya

Unfortunately, when dealing with Muslims, one must keep in mind that Muslims can communicate something with apparent sincerity, when in reality they may have just the opposite agenda in their hearts. Bluntly stated, Islam permits Muslims to lie anytime that they perceive that their own well-being, or that of Islam, is threatened.

In the sphere of international politics, the question is: Can Muslim countries be trusted to keep their end of the agreements that they sign with non-Muslim nations? It is a known Islamic practice, that when Muslims are weak they can agree with most anything. Once they become strong, then they negate what they formerly vowed.

The principle of sanctioning lying for the cause of Islam bears grave implications in matters relating to the spread of the religion of Islam in the West. Muslim activists employ deceptive tactics in their attempts to polish Islam’s image and make it more attractive to prospective converts. They carefully try to avoid, obscure, and omit mentioning any of the negative Islamic texts and teachings.

An example of Islamic deception is that Muslim activists always quote the passages of the Quran from the early part of Mohammed’s ministry while living in Mecca. These texts are peaceful and exemplify tolerance towards those that are not followers of Islam. All the while, they are fully aware that most of these passages were abrogated (cancelled and replaced) by passages that came after he migrated to Medina. The replacement verses reflect prejudice, intolerance, and endorse violence upon unbelievers

In conclusion, it is imperative to understand, that Muslim leaders can use this loop-hole in their religion, to absolve them from any permanent commitment. It is also important to know that what Muslim activists say to spread Islam may not always be the whole truth. When dealing with Muslims, what they say is not the issue. The real issue is, what they actually mean in their hearts.”

7.)   From the first page of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky:

“Let them call me rebel and welcome, I feel no concern from it; but I should suffer the misery of devils, were I to make a whore of my soul…”  Thomas Paine

“Lest we forget ay least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did is so effectively that he at least won his Own kingdom – Lucifer.”  - Saul Alinsky

The Rules:

  • RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
  • RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
  • RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
  • RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
  • RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
  • RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
  • RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.
  • RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
  • RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
  • RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
  • RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
  • RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
