More and victimhood Lawfare in the US, no doubt backed up by CAIR:
A former employee is suing one of the government’s most secretive security agencies, alleging he lost his security clearance because his wife attended an Islamic school and worked for a Muslim charity.
Mahmoud Hegab filed the discrimination lawsuit this week in federal court in Virginia against the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency at Fort Belvoir.
The Alexandria resident worked at NGA as a budget analyst with a top-secret security clearance. But his clearance was revoked in November after he got married. NGA officials told him they were concerned about his wife’s schooling at the Islamic Saudi Academy, a private school in northern Virginia.
Officials also cited her employment with an Islamic relief agency as a reason for revoking the clearance.
NGA officials did not respond to an email seeking comment.
Saudi Arabia is the cash machine for world Islamic terror. It not only funds terror directly by bankrolling groups such as al-Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Taliban, but also through the financing of hard-line mosques and ‘Islamic Cultural Centres’ in the West.
Frankly, we’d have been surprised if the NGA hadn’t removed his clearance after they discovered this information.
Make no mistake – despite the West’s addiction to their oil and the picture often painted by the media of them as ‘our friends in the Middle East’ – Saudi Arabia is a de-facto enemy of the state to all developed, secular nations – actively working against our interests and spreading the Wahhabi Muslim philosophy of Jihad, Sharia and Jew-Hatred.
We’d have been more surprised if he hadn’t had his clearance revoked after this discovery.

“No home-grown terrorists in America.” I read that sign and I think “tell it to Melvin Bledsoe.”
In March of 2011, when U.S. Representative King held his hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives’ Homeland Security Committee regarding homegrown Islamic radicalization, he was called everything from a bigot (of course) to someone who was looking to stir up animosity between groups of Americans.
The hearings were set to examine “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response” in the wake of several high-profile incidents linked to American Muslims such as the mass-shooting of Army soldiers at the Ft. Hood Army base by fellow soldier Nidal Hassan and the call for the death of a couple of American cartoonists and subsequent attempt to join As-Sahab by American-born Zachary Chesser, who became radicalized while at college.
On the list of people invited to speak to the committee were such people as Rep. Keith Ellison, who is the first Muslim elected to the House of Representatives and Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, President and Founder, American Islamic Forum for Democracy. But to me, the most compelling of the guest list was Mr. Melvin Bledsoe, Private Citizen.
Wonder what that could be for? (H/t Un:dhimmi reader Peter):
Iran has agreed to fund a new multi-million-dollar military base on the Syrian coast to make it easier to ship weapons and other military hardware between the two countries, according to Western intelligence reports.
Under the terms of the deal, which was concluded after a high-level Syrian delegation visited Tehran, Iran is to assist with the development of a new military compound at Latakia airport which will be completed by the end of next year. The aim of the agreement is to open a supply route that will enable Iran to transfer military hardware directly to Syria.
Western security officials say the deal was agreed following a visit to Tehran in June by Muhammad Nasif Kheirbek, Syria’s deputy vice-president for security affairs and an ally of President Bashar al-Assad.
Iran and Syria have enjoyed a close strategic alliance for decades, founded on their mutual antipathy towards the West. Read the rest of this entry »
“O Allah, destroy their buildings with explosives, their cars with booby-traps, and their men with sniper rifles,” Contributor, al-Qaeda-linked Shumukh al-Islam Jihad Forum
A terrorism-monitoring organization said Friday that jihadists are threatening Belgium with terrorism for having imposed a burqa ban.
In an email to subscribers, the United States-based SITE Monitoring Service quoted posts on jihadist internet sites as urging the bombing, torture and killing of Belgians. In its introduction to the posts, SITE made no assessment of the severity of the threat.
According to SITE, on July 24 — the day after Belgium’s burqa ban took effect — someone called Faz al-Shaheed posted a comment on the Shumukh al-Islam forum saying, “This is what your parliament unanimously decided except for one representative, to ban the wearing of the veil in your small country. So, by this decision you have ignited unto yourselves a fire without an extinguisher. … I urge our Muslim brethren in Belgium to do what they can of bombing, destroying, torturing and assassinating them, because they are the ones who started it.” Read the rest of this entry »
The ties between Leftists, international organised crime and Islamic terrorism persists. And for Americans – with Hezbollah in Mexico working with drug cartels – it’s now far closer to home than perhaps they ever thought:
Islamic terrorist groups are setting up shop in Mexico and forming alarming ties with the country’s brutal drug cartels, according to a 2010 internal memo from the Tucson Police Department.
The memo, leaked by the hacker group LulzSec as part of its Arizona Department of Public Safety hack, warns that Hezbollah has established operations — and a large arms stockpile — in Mexico. Read the rest of this entry »
