The Portland Christmas Tree Bomber – How The FBI Created, Trained & Supplied “An Islamic Terrorist”

For a period of 18 months, the FBI trained and then supplied bomb making equipment to Mohamed Osman Mohamud, the target – a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.

The supposed explosive was a dummy that FBI operatives supplied to him, that failed to go off, according to an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint.

According to the FBI, their undercover agents had decided to meet with Mr. Mohamud in Portland in July 2010, where Mr. Mohamud expressed a desire to conduct “Jihad” against non-Muslims. The story fast-forwards to Friday, November 26, 2010, when Mr. Mohamud was arrested after trying to detonate an inert bomb supplied to him by the FBI, on the corner of Southwest Yamhill Street and Sixth Avenue – in full view of the ceremony.

The FBI asset identified a location to place the bomb and mailed bomb components to his FBI handlers, who he believed were assembling the device. He also mailed them passport photos so he could sneak out of the country after the attack, according to the affidavit.

He provided the FBI operatives with a memory stick that contained detailed directions to the bomb location and operational instructions for the attack.

On Nov. 4, Mohamud and the FBI operatives travelled to a remote spot in Lincoln County, where they detonated a bomb concealed in a backpack as a trial run for the upcoming attack.

Later that day, Mohamud recorded a video of himself with the FBI operatives in which he read a written statement offering his reasons for the planned Portland bombing.

On Nov. 18, FBI operatives picked up Mohamud to travel to Portland, where they would finalize details of the attack.

The above are all FACTS, sworn down to the letter of the law, so isn’t it slightly perplexing why the FBI, knowing Mr. Mohamud’s criminal intent, and upon delivering the bomb to the willing would-be terrorist, would allow him to approach a large public venue and attempt to detonate the device in public view. All the while the US Attorney’s Office maintains that “the public was never in danger”.

The official narrative of the “War on Terror” is that there are Muslims hell bent on destroying “The West”. My scepticism, of course, comes from the fact that the only groups that seem to be actually building bombs and conducting terrorist operations are within our own Western Governments.

Parallels between Portland’s staged terror stunt can be seen with a very similar FBI operation that went “wrong” on February 26, 1993 at New York City’s World Trade Centre. The FBI was also in contact with willing terrorists whom they assisted in building an inert bomb. Inexplicably, the FBI agents switched the inert explosives with a real device which was then delivered to the WTC and detonated, killing 6 and injuring 1,042.

These revelations were made public after FBI informant, former Egyptian army officer Emad Salem, revealed recordings he made of his conversations with the FBI agents. He became suspicious of their motives and feared for his own safety upon realizing real explosives were being used.

The recordings were published by the New York Times, but failed to get any recognition in the mass media.

The US Justice Department’s official statement states that:

“FBI agents constructed and detonated a real device with Mohamud on November 4, 2010 in a run-up to the actual event”

What we have are proven facts of FBI agents posing as terrorists, constructing and detonating real explosives whilst using the patsy of a “radicalised Muslim” to shoulder the blame and by default propagating the myth of the “Muslim Bogeyman” that the Neo-Con inspired “Clash of Civilizations” theorised.

The end result of course is that people will believe that Muslims were behind such a plot, and will physically attack Muslims – The Corvallis Masajid, which was frequented by the FBI asset, was gutted in an arson attack on Sunday.

It’s proven that the intelligence agencies were behind this false flag terror operation. What other recent attacks supposedly committed by Muslims have the intelligence agencies been involved in?

Where’s WikiLeaks when you need them?

The War on Terror?


It’s The War OF Terror.

Decoding The Wikileaks US Diplomatic Cable Dump

Decoding the Wikileaks US diplomatic cable dump & understanding what it means in real terms is going to be this weeks big news. The job of the media is not to protect the powerful from embarrassment, it is for governments – not journalists – to guard public secrets, and there is no national jeopardy in WikiLeaks’ revelations.

Anything said or done in the name of a democracy is, prima facie, of public interest. When that democracy purports to be “world policeman” – an assumption that runs ghostlike through these cables – that interest is global. The contradictions between the US’ public persona and what it says behind closed doors is finally being exposed, and that’s what they don’t want to be made public, the duplicity, double dealings and hypocrisy.

Here’s a selection of the Wikileaks:

Saudi Arabia urges US attack on Iran to stop nuclear programme

Several Arab leaders and their representatives are quoted as urging the US to carry out an attack on Iran to bring an end to its suspected nuclear weapons programme.

The Saudi ambassador to Washington, Adel al-Jubeir, recalled King Abdullah’s “frequent exhortations” to the US to attack Iran in order to bring an end to its nuclear programme.

In a report of a 2008 meeting with US General David Petraeus, Mr al-Jubeir said the king wanted the US to “to cut the head off the snake”.

King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa of Bahrain is reported to have told the US to stop Iran “by whatever means necessary”, while the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed, told the US he believed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was “going to take us to war”.

Yemeni President Agreed To Cover up US Attack in Yemen

US diplomats spied on UN leadership

The US has been attempting to remove highly enriched uranium from a research reactor in Pakistan since 2007.

US criticism of UK “devastating” – UK operations in Afghanistan and serious political criticisms of David Cameron.

Israel Says Turkeys Prime Minister “Simply Hates Israel”

The Akh has to agree with the sentiments that this Wikileak dump “Brings the Bastards to Their Knees” It is marvelous to see various U.S. officials reacting like pathetic, cornered rats; the Guardian story provides several examples.

If this Wikileaks release slows down the U.S. machinery of death and destruction to any appreciable extent, Assange and the others will be owed still another debt that can never be repaid. “A worldwide diplomatic crisis”!


Magnificently done.

Since When Has It Been Cool To Be A Dickhead?

Since when has it been cool to be a dickhead?

Sarah Palin Says “Obviously – We’ve Got To Stand With Our North Korean Allies”

Sarah Palin thinks that the USA should stand with it’s ally, North Korea.

The Akh wonders if she could even point out North Korea on the world map?

Palin makes George “Dubya” Bush look like a genius.

Americans be warned – don’t vote this idiot into office.

Funny how the only rogue state in the world that does have weapons of mass destruction doesn’t get attacked by America and it’s coalition of the willing.

Israel Blows Up West Bank Mosques In Palestine

Israeli troops have demolished mosques and more than 10 other structures in two areas in the occupied West Bank territories of Palestine.

Any efforts to build a Palestinian state are met with state destruction by Israel.

This is all part of Israel’s ethnic cleansing programme under the guise of its “Oath of Loyalty”, which I’ve covered in depth previously:

“I declare loyalty to the Jewish state, its leaders & commanders of the Jewish army”

Israel’s “law of citizenship” will have dire consequences

Israel declares war on its people – The result of the “Citizenship” oath.

Oh You Who Believe Strive & Fight With Your Wealth & Persons & Make No Excuses For Why You Sat At Home

It’s always a surprise, but sadly not a shock to see Muslims make every excuse under then sun to not fight Fi’Sabeel’Allah to change the miserable condition that the majority of Muslims live under the world over.

The Akh is well versed with Muslim attitudes in Britain, but after a recent trip to the confederacy of the United Arab Emirates, I was surprised but not shocked to see the bubble that people live in, totally oblivious to what’s happening literally in their bordering states.

As my Jumma reminder, first and foremost directed to myself before anyone else, I was reading the following passage from Surah At Tauba (Surah 9, Verses 86-99) from the Holy Qu’ran, and felt compelled to share;

86 When a Surah comes down enjoining them to believe in Allah and to strive and fight along with his apostle those with wealth and influence among them ask thee for exemption and say: “Leave us (behind): we would be with those who sit (at home).”

88 But the apostle and those who believe with him strive and fight with their wealth and their persons: for them are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper. 1340

90 And there were among the desert Arabs (also) Men who made excuses and came to claim exemption; and those who were false to Allah and His apostle (Merely) sat inactive. Soon will a grievous penalty seize the unbelievers among them. 1342

93 The ground (of complaint) is against such as claim exemption while they are rich. They prefer to stay with the (women) who remain behind: Allah hath sealed their hearts; so they know not (what they miss). 1345

94 They will present their excuses to you when ye return to them. Say thou: “Present no excuses: we shall not believe you: Allah hath already informed us of the true state of matters concerning you: it is your actions that Allah and His apostle will observe: in the end will ye be brought back to Him who knoweth what is hidden and what is open: then will He show you the truth of all that ye did.

95 They will swear to you by Allah when ye return to them that ye may leave them alone. So leave them alone: For they are an abomination and Hell is their dwelling place a fitting recompense for the (evil) that they did.

96 They will swear unto you that ye may be pleased with them but if ye are pleased with them Allah is not pleased with those who disobey.

97 The Arabs of the desert are the worst in unbelief and hypocrisy and most fitted to be in ignorance of the command which Allah hath sent down to his apostle: but Allah is All-Knowing All-Wise.

98 Some of the desert Arabs Look upon their payments as a fine and watch for disasters for you: on them be the disaster of evil: for Allah is He that heareth and knoweth (all things). 1346

99 But some of the desert Arabs believe in Allah and The Last Day and look on their payments as pious gifts bringing them nearer to Allah and obtaining the prayers of the apostle. Aye indeed they bring them nearer (to Him): soon will Allah admit them to His Mercy: for Allah is Oft- Forgiving Most Merciful. 1347


1340 “Good things,” and “prosperity,” are to be understood both in the physical and in the highest spiritual sense.

1342 Not only had the Hypocrites a nest in Madinah, but their tactics affected some of the village or desert Bedouins, who loved war and would have followed a standard of war even if no question of Faith or a sacred Cause was involved. But some of them, though professing Islam, were frightened by the hardships of the Tabuk expedition and the prospect of meeting the trained armies of the great Roman (Byzantine) Empire. They made all sorts of lying excuses, but really their want of faith made them ineligible for being enlisted in a sacred Cause. Some came to make excuses: other did not even come , but sat at home, ignoring the summons.

1345 Where similar phrases are used for a similar shirking of duty by towns-folk, while here we are considering the desert folk. It is not only a duty, but a precious privilege, to serve a great Cause by personal self-sacrifice. Those who shirk such an opportunity know not what they miss. (9.93)

1346 The payments refer to the regular Charity established by Islam-the obligatory alms. If you look upon them as a fine or a burden, their virtue is lost. If you rejoice that you have there an opportunity of helping the Community to maintain its standards of public assistance and to suppress the unseemly beggary and loathsome importunity whose relief is only governed by motives of getting rid of awkward obstacles on the way, then your outlook is entirely different. You wish for organised and effective efforts to solve the problems of human poverty and misery. In doing so, you get nearer to Allah, and you earn the good wishes and prayers of godly men, led by our holy Leader Al-Mustafa. (9.98)

1347 The Mercy of Allah is always present, as the sun is always shining. But when we have prepared ourselves to receive it, we come to the full enjoyment of it, as a man who was in a shade comes out by his effort into the open, and basks in sunshine.

Though active service in person or by contributing resources is expected of every person who believes in the Cause, there are some who must necessarily be exempted without the least blame attaching to them. Such would be those who are weak in body on account of age, sex, infirmity, or illness. Personal service in their case is out of the question, but they could contribute towards expenses if they are able. But if they are too poor to afford even such assistance, they are excused.

In all cases the motive must be sincere, and there should be a desire to serve and do such duty as they can.

With such motives people are doing good or right in whatever form they express their service: sometimes, in Milton’s words, “they also serve who only stand and wait.” In any case their purity of motive would get Allah’s grace and forgiveness.

As always may you and yours have a safe weekend and remember this Ummah in your duah’s and let those prayers translate into moving your limbs into action Fi’Sabeel’Allah, for prayer without an action to back it up becomes insincere.

Queen Wears Hijab On Abu Dhabi Visit – Shift In Foreign Policy Or Desperation To Sell Weapon Contracts?

The Queen decked out in a hijab visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi yesterday.

The 84-year-old queen adjusted the scarf worn over her white hat as she made her way into the prayer hall where, at the door, she was escorted to a covered corner to remove her shoes – a tradition followed by Muslims upon their entrance to mosques.

Inside the mosque, which opened in 2007, the queen listened to children reciting the Koran.

“This visit by the Head of the Church of England to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is reflective of the multi-faith dialogue and tolerance that is common to both the UAE and UK,” the British embassy said.

“There is a very deep friendship between Her Majesty and the ruling families here.

The relation we have now is based on a common perception of our political interests, a shared analysis of threats and very close business and investment links between our two countries.

This visit is about looking into the future.”

British ambassador Dominic Jermey.

No sooner had that been said, the Gulf’s flag-carrier Qatar Airways were mulling over a new order for more A380 superjumbo jets.

The Telegraph reported on Foreign Secretary William Hague’s decision to reach out to Gulf states in an effort to secure better diplomatic and trade ties meant Britain had to “take on board” Arab foreign policy goals.

Requesting better ties would be a two-way street, not just plea for more defence contracts and exports, they said.

“It will be a six lane highway with movement in both directions,” said one diplomat. “We have to respond to what Gulf States want. If we want a long-term partnership on foreign policy, then changes in our stance have to be part of it.”

But the visit has taken on a more significant, and unusually political context both with the change of government in Britain and increasing tensions with Iran a short distance away on the other side of the Gulf.

Mr Hague set improving relations with the Gulf and India as his first policy goals, and both David Cameron, the prime minister, and Liam Fox, the defence secretary, visited Abu Dhabi within a month of taking office.

That may mean yet further withdrawal of traditional British support for Israel, with criticism of its government already more marked under Mr Hague than it was under New Labour government.

In another indication of the Foreign Office’s new sensitivity to Arab opinion, officials admitted to The Daily Telegraph that policies on the Israel-Lebanon war of 2006, Israel’s invasion of Gaza in 2008-9, and its occupation of the West Bank and settlements policy were “motivators” for the Islamic radicalism that they confronted daily in the Gulf.

The Israeli’s were not pleased to hear this news.

BBC Panorama’s – British Schools, Islamic Rules and The Policy Exchange Connection

So the BBC Panorama’s John Ware finds “Muslim Extremists” running schools and takes the evidence to Michael Gove, Education Secretary. Policy Exchange, the think tank also reports on the same thing as reported by Andrew Gilligan. The ex-chairman of Policy Exchange is…….Michael Gove.

John Ware is a despicable individual with a long and proven track record of Islamophobic hate statements.

Another Panorama report by Ware, entitled “Faith, Hate and Charity” sought to discredit Interpal, a British charity that provides relief and development aid to Palestinians in need. The documentary was criticised for, among other things, an over-reliance on partisan Israeli and American sources.

The right wing think tank Policy Exchange’s reason for being is to serve as another divisive unit, attempting to drive a wedge between British Muslims and the rest of society.

Before Nick Clegg sold out his principles, he blasted that Policy Exchange directors of “bizarre and underhand behaviour”, and questioned the validity of their “evidence”.

The Akh is pleased to see organisations other than the Muslim Public Affairs Committee taking up the media jihad.

Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) issued a notable press release.

Engage also had a piece on this topic, showing how several media outlets, including the Daily Mail, the Metro and the Daily Star acting as a force multiplier by re-reporting on this latest Panorama programme.

Muslim organisations have  to learn how to defend themselves and their much maligned communities. By understanding  the modus operandi of the how the political system works and is influenced by the media and think tanks alike is a vital and necessary first step in grasping the insidious nature of the game being played against Muslims.

Pakistan Has Taken The Biggest Losses In The War Against Terror

In the three years up to November 2010, the number of civilian deaths in terrorism-related incidents in Pakistan has leapt to over 25,000. That’s more than any 9/11 & 7/7 combined and multiplied many times over, yet, “The West” keeps telling Pakistan it should do more to combat terrorism.

It is surprising how little we hear about what is happening at the moment in Pakistan from the mouths of Pakistanis. We hear brief news reports detailing terrorist attacks from the region with numbing regularity but is rare that we stop to consider what those attacks mean for those caught up in them.

Take Tahir Malik’s first hand account he says that compared to what is happening in his own country ‘people in the West know nothing about terrorism’.

Channel 4’s Dispatches City of Fear, follows the police and people of Islamabad as Pakistan’s capital battles to overcome an unprecedented wave of terrorist attacks, providing a powerful insight into what the real war on terrorism fought on the streets of the metropolis really means, with bloody and tragic consequences.

It’s available to watch for the next few days on the Dispatches website here.

Catching The Train For Hajj – The Mecca Metro

Catching a train between the the holy sites for the Hujjaj is now a reality with the metro light rail getting you from Mina, Muzadalifah to Arafat in several minutes, rather then several hours on the gridlocked roads.

The Akh is welcoming back people who have performed the Hajj this year and the topic of overcrowding is one that comes up year on year. Maybe this will go towards alleviating some of the stress in travelling…a most excellent bida’h.

Let’s hope they can run trains better then here in the UK, last thing you want to hear is “This train has been delayed due to sand on the line”.
