No Go Zones Are Old News Finally in Debate

After the Paris attack(s), 4 since December, the dialogue has morphed to no-go zones as designed by Islamists in many towns, states and Western cultured countries.

Do you ever wonder why Muslims pray on the public streets and not in the mosques? It is an ‘in your face’ action.

Just in France there are more than 700 of them, more on that later as France is aware of them and is allegedly working to reclaim them. In a raw language translation from French to English:

The security policy that I hear lead must be resolutely turned towards the territories and their inhabitants,”he recalls in preamble to circular addressed to the whole of the prefects of France, responsible of the implementation of these areas from the start.
It‘s to respond closely to the concerns of our citizens, often among the poorest, insists Manuel Valls, former Deputy Mayor of Evry (Essonne). The prefects of these fifteen first ‘test zones”must, by mid-September, to make known the precise contours and the objectives of security, number of two or three maximum meet. Here, the decline in burglaries or the fight against drug trafficking, then occupations of buildings halls or the flights in the snatch. “It is to bring decision-making at the level of stakeholders in the field, supports a close associate of the Minister of the Interior. The contours of these areas can be adapted at any time because we must be as reactive as offenders. »
Focus on hotspots
Alain Bauer, criminologist former adviser to Nicolas Sarkozy and also very close to Manuel Valls-, this new device could be likened to “experiments already carried out in the United States and the Canada. In the years 1990-2000, the Americans and Canadians found that a real effective policy against crimes was to focus on a series of hot spots (hot spots in English). It comes then to deploy police forces highly mobile and adaptable in a coherent territory. There, for the first time in France, it approximates this spirit there. We leave the Theology for pragmatism. »
Specifically, this device will be based on an “operational cell” led by the prefect, associated with the Prosecutor of the Republic if the latter wishes-, to coordinate all of the security forces in the area concerned. Police, CRS, gendarmes, investigators of the judicial police and intelligence services will be thus mobilized. A ‘coordination cell’ second of the various partners (municipal policies, associations, Education…) it will be, overseen by one or more local elected representatives. This cell, which must be the narrowest possible for greater efficiency, aims to drive all prevention actions against delinquency, such as the implementation of measures aimed at preventing the recurrence of minors.
Remains unknown: how will have the ZSP? “Even if the future creations of posts will be deployed, as a priority, on these areas, we will mobilize existing resources,” stressed the Ministry of the Interior, which is “not deprive certain sectors for the benefit of this new feature. Without waiting for the results of the experiment, Manuel Valls already plans to deploy “a quarantine to other priority areas of security” by summer 2013.
For a list of the no-go zones just in France click here, there are 751 of them throughout the country. My friend Steve Emerson at the Investigative Project explained on Sean Hannity last night how not only France but all of Europe has passed the point of diminishing returns to reclaim their own sovereignty. He is right and this has been fact for years, but it IS coming to America unless we advance this debate and immigration.
What is chilling is the entire Obama administration through the U.S. State Department has been coaching Muslims overseas through embassies including France.

SCOTT SAYARE, New York Times 

BONDY, France — The residents of this poor, multiracial Paris suburb say they have been abandoned. For 30 years, they say, the French authorities have written off Bondy and neighborhoods like it, treating their inhabitants as terminal delinquents and ignoring their potential.

This, residents note, is not the approach taken by the U.S. Department of State.

“We’re waiting for the president of the Republic, for his ministers,” said Gilbert Roger, the mayor of Bondy. “And we see the ambassador of the United States.”

The U.S. Embassy in Paris has formed a network of partnerships with local governments, advocacy groups, entrepreneurs, students and cultural leaders in the troubled immigrant enclaves outside France’s major cities.

Begun in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks as part of an effort to bolster the image of the United States within Muslim communities across the globe, American outreach in these hard neighborhoods — often referred to collectively as the “banlieues,” or suburbs — has grown in scale and visibility since the election of Barack Obama.

France is home to between 5 million and 6 million Muslims, Europe’s largest Muslim population, and the banlieues have long been considered potential incubators for religious extremism. But anti-American sentiment, once pervasive in these neighborhoods, seems to have been all but erased since the election of Obama, who has proved a powerful symbol of hope here and a powerful diplomatic tool.

Many suggest the Americans’ warm reception is a measure of these communities’ sense of abandonment. Others say it is the presence of Obama in the White House. Whatever the case, the United States is now more popular in the banlieues than at any time in recent memory, say French and American officials.

Much of the embassy’s outreach is meant to dispel “mistruths” about the United States, the ambassador, Charles H. Rivkin, said in an interview, adding: “It’s easier to hate something you don’t understand.”

With an annual public affairs budget of about $3 million, the Paris embassy has sponsored a variety of urban renewal projects, music festivals and conferences. Since Obama’s election, the Americans have helped organize seminars for minority politicians, coaching them in electoral strategy, fund-raising and communications.

The International Visitor Leadership Program, which sends 20 to 30 promising French entrepreneurs and politicians to America for several weeks each year, now includes more minority participants, and Muslims in particular. The embassy began a similar program for French teenagers.

Rivkin, 48, an entertainment executive and the youngest American ambassador to France in nearly 60 years, has taken a strong interest in the banlieues. Earlier this year, he thrilled a group of students in Bondy when he arrived with the actor Samuel L. Jackson, one of several entertainment industry contacts he has called upon in France. In Los Angeles, Rivkin cultivated ties between the family media and hip-hop worlds; in Paris, he has hosted local rappers at the Hotel Rothschild, his official residence.

Officials insist the outreach is not meant solely to curry favor for the United States; the Americans also see an emerging group of political and business elites in these neighborhoods. The embassy is “trying to connect with the next generation of leaders in France,” Rivkin said. “That includes the banlieues.”

Few French leaders speak in such hopeful terms.

Residents “have the sense that the United States looks upon our areas with much more deference and respect,” said Roger, the Bondy mayor. For electoral reasons, he said, French politicians exaggerate the violence and criminality here.

Ministerial excursions to the banlieues often entail a crushing police presence and vows to crack down on crime. President Nicolas Sarkozy, who as interior minister pledged to clean up one of these cities with a high-pressure hose, typically spends his time here consulting with law enforcement officials.

Although often criticized as not serious about stemming the violence, poverty and unemployment that plague the banlieues, the French government commits $5 billion annually to these cities, according to Fadela Amara, the secretary of state for urban policy. Since 2003, she said, the state has pledged more than $16 billion to a nationwide urban reconstruction program.

Residents and local politicians say this is nowhere near enough, although they add that money alone will not solve the problems.

“Do you know what it means to give recognition in the suburbs?” asked Aziz Senni, 34, the founder of a taxi service and an investment fund dedicated to spurring economic development in the banlieues, where he was raised. “It’s worth as much as gold.”

A Moroccan-born Muslim, Senni traveled to the United States in 2006 as a participant in the visitor program. He was effusive in his praise for the outreach and the optimism it has spread. “Never has France had this type of approach,” he said.

Senni spoke of feeling “stigmatized” by French leaders. A law banning the full facial veil, a government-led “debate on national identity” and a recent proposal to revoke French nationality from certain criminals “of foreign origin” have been widely felt as attacks on immigrants and Muslims here.

“The emerging elite in the suburbs doesn’t see itself in the way it’s being treated by French society,” said Nordine Nabili, 43, who directs the newly opened Bondy branch of a journalism school, ESJ Lille; he hosted Rivkin and Jackson there in April.

“You’re the future,” Jackson told the students.

Nabili said: “I don’t think people tell them that enough.” He worries the Americans may be raising hopes too high, however. Beyond good feelings, he said, “there really needs to be a true policy.”

Rivkin called such concerns unfounded. “From my vantage point, this embassy has not been peddling false dreams,” he said. “Anything is possible, if you put your mind to it and work hard enough.”

Widad Ketfi, 25, was among the students who met Rivkin and Jackson earlier this year. “We won’t be disappointed,” she insisted. The American attention is proof that “these young people are succeeding,” she said, that “we’re not invisible.”

Meanwhile Back in Syria, Destruction

Extremists destroy 13th century Muslim tomb in Syria

Nusra Front Islamist militants linked to al-Qaeda have blown up the 13th century tomb of a revered Islamic scholar in southern Syria, Syrian state news agency SANA and monitoring group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reported.

The mausoleum of Imam Nawawi is in Nawa in Deraa province near the Jordanian border, a town captured by groups fighting the Syrian government in November.

The Nusra Front follows the same puritanical interpretation of Sunni Islam adopted by the Islamic State group that has also destroyed shrines in areas of eastern and northern Syria that it controls. They see tombs as sacrilegious.

Investigators confident that chlorine gas was used in 3 Syrian villages

UNITED NATIONS — Chemical weapons investigators concluded “with a high degree of confidence” that chlorine gas was used as a weapon against three opposition-controlled villages in Syria last year, affecting between 350 and 500 people and killing 13, according to a report obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.

The third report by a fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons didn’t apportion blame but said 32 of 37 people interviewed “saw or heard the sound of a helicopter over the village at the time of the attack with barrel bombs containing toxic chemicals.”

The investigators said 26 people heard the distinctive “whistling” sound of the falling barrel bombs containing toxic chemicals and 16 visited the impact sites and saw the bombs or their remnants. They said 29 people smelled “the distinctive odor of the gas cloud” released after the bombs hit the ground, mainly describing it “as intense, chlorine-like, similar to cleaning material used to clean toilets, but much stronger.”

The report includes a description of 142 videos and 189 pieces of material obtained by the investigators as well as photos of impact sites and the inner chlorine cylinder from a barrel bomb.

The mission was established by the OPCW on April 29 to establish the facts surrounding allegations of the use of chlorine “for hostile purposes” in Syria. Chlorine gas is readily available and is used in industry around the world, but it can also be used as a weapon.

The U.N. Security Council has been intensely involved in the issue of alleged chemical weapons use in Syria. After an August 2013 sarin gas attack near Damascus in which the U.S. says more than 1,400 people were killed, the Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution backed by the U.S. and Russia on Sept. 27, 2013, ordering Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile to be destroyed. U.N. investigators could not find enough evidence to assess blame for the sarin attack. Syria’s declared chemical weapons stockpiles have since been destroyed under international supervision, but questions remain about whether it may still be hiding deadly chemical agents.

Chlorine gas is not listed as a chemical weapon. But eight council members, including the United States, said in a Dec. 30 letter accompanying the OPCW report that the 2013 resolution also states that any use of chemical weapons threatens international peace and security and must be condemned.

The 15 council members discussed the fact-finding mission’s report behind closed doors Tuesday, and diplomats said the U.S. and other Western nations who signed the letter along with Jordan urged Security Council action in response to the findings. But Russia, Syria’s closest ally, insisted that the report on chlorine attacks was an issue for the OPCW, which polices the Chemical Weapons Convention, the diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity because consultations were private.

Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faysal Mekdad told an OPCW meeting on Dec. 1 that his government has never used chemical weapons or chlorine gas during the country’s four-year civil war, which has claimed over 200,000 lives and displaced one third of the country’s population. He said terror groups “have used chlorine gas in several of the regions of Syria and Iraq.”

But U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power tweeted that “only Syrian regime uses (helicopters).” She also tweeted that the Syrian “Regime must be shown it is not enough to destroy declared CW (chemical weapons); must stop dropping chemical-laden explosives on civilians.”

The investigators interviewed 14 people from the village of Talmenes in Idlib governorate about barrel bomb attacks on April 21 and April 24. At two houses that were hit, a 7-year-old boy, a teenage girl, and the matriarch of a family died from exposure to chlorine gas, they said. Domestic animals including cows, goats and sheep also died at both houses.

Fourteen people from the village of Al Tamanah, also in Idlib, were interviewed by the mission’s investigators about five incidents in April and May – all but one at night. Eight members of two families who had sought refuge in the village died shortly after separate attacks involving the toxic chemical, the report said.

Investigators said they interviewed nine people from Kafr Zita in Hama Governorate in northern Syria and were told that the village had been the target of hundreds of attacks with conventional weapons and 17 attacks using toxic chemicals between April and August.

Obama Starts off New Year with Veto Pen

The State of the Union speech is right around the corner and Barack Obama flying Air Force 1 into overdrive pushing items he wants to take credit for including lower gas prices.

President Obama Chooses Vetoes Over Veterans

President Obama has enough time to threaten to veto three bipartisan bills from Congress. His Administration made room in the schedule to issue 300 new rules in the first week of the new year. The President is even taking the time to tell people what cars they should buy.

But he can’t seem to find a single spare minute to visit the Phoenix VA at the center of a nationwide scandal even though his motorcade drove right past it today.

The Veterans Affairs system is still broken. Though the House and Senate passed the start of good reform last year, the bureaucracy still needs major reforms so that veterans get the care they need in time. But the President still hasn’t taken the time to offer a long-term plan to fix the VA. President Obama needs to change his priorities.

It’s time for the White House to stop blocking bipartisan bills that the people want and get to work on real solutions and genuine reform. Don’t drive past the problems, Mr. President. Start helping us fix them.

In the first two days of the new Congress, President Obama has already issued three veto threats against bipartisan bills. Despite the bills having strong support on both sides of the aisle, President Obama has indicated that he will veto bills restoring the 40-hour workweek under Obamacare, approving the Keystone XL pipeline, and delaying a part of the flawed Dodd-Frank regulations.

Obama: Don’t buy that gas guzzler, fuel prices are gonna go up

President visits Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant today

“I would strongly advise American consumers to continue to think about how you save money at the pump because it is good for the environment, it’s good for family pocketbooks and if you go back to old habits and suddenly gas is back at $3.50, you are going to not be real happy,” the President told The Detroit News in a phone interview, ahead of his visit to Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant today.

“The American people should not believe that … demand for oil by China and India and all these emerging countries is going to stay flat,” Obama told The Detroit News. “Just demographics tell us demand is going to continue to grow, that over the long term it will grow faster than supply and we have to be smart about our energy policy,” he said.

Obama is using the stop at the Ford facility in Wayne, Michigan to tout his administration’s auto industry bailout. The facility, where Ford produces the Focus and C-Max, is currently idle due to slow sales.

Example of how Terrorists Arrive in the U.S.

The Bush Administration worked diligently to stop terrorists from entering the homeland. At the time, there was an effort to determine all terror connections, travel, money flow and names. Below illustrate such a case. Today, we there is no confidence of CBP or DHS stopping terrorists given obvious and recent cases, conditions and the DACA executive order.

This previous method for entering the United States is happening again today. Now you will have some facts from not only through the Southern border but through every port and international airport in America.

notes are based solely on the detainee’s statements.

.*Recruitment and Travel: Beginning in 2001,detainee began making his way to the

US from Pakistan( PK) via South  America and Mexico (MX). Detainee attempted to enter the US, so he could get a job and send money home to his family. Detainee had managed to pay $25,000 to the facilitator if he arrived safely in the US. After many months of travel, he was arrested by Mexican police in March of 2003. (Analyst Note: Detainee has not given a name to his facilitator as of this memo.)

*Capture Information: The detainee and Ahmad Jan were arrested by Mexican authorities while traveling without proper documentation .After being held for three months, Mexican authorities deported him to Kabul, AF, where he was turned over to the Afghan government.

b. (S) Transfer to JTF GTMO: Detainee was subsequently transported to Guantanamo Bay

Naval Base, Cuba, on 9 May 2003.

c. (S) Reasons for Transfer to JTF GTMO: To provide specific information on terrorist networks, financing, facilitators, recruiters, and travel in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Mexico.

d. (S) Reasons for Continued Detention:

*Detainee probably staged out of Ecuador to Guatemala prior to arriving in Mexico

(MX). His probable facilitator for that portion of the trip has been linked to Hizballah and Al- Gama’at Al-Islamiyya.

*The US escort officer on the return trip to Afghanistan from Mexico was able to

determine that the detainee and Ahmed Jan had staged out of Ecuador( EC) sometime in

February2 002 and traveled by vessel to the Chetumal port-of-entry area from Quayaquil, E C.

Detainee also admitted to being on a boat for 8-9 hours.

*The vessel that transported the detainee and Ahmed Jan into Mexico is believed to be one of the special interest vessels( vessels that carry any US-bound alien who is a citizen or

national of, or originates travel from, a country that is of special interest to the national security of the US (lraq, Iran, Egypt, Sudan, Indonesia, Yemen and Afghanistan).These  citizens or nationals are the focus of a joint INS, USCG and Mexican Navy operation called Operation Southern Watch.

*According to a member of the US Embassy Mexico City, several vessels were apprehended  by Operation Southern Watch during the time frame in which the detainee  and Ahmed Jan were smuggled in to Mexico. Five vessels made it to Mexico without being apprehended-two of which were the Nina Marie II and the Esperanza.

*The smuggler responsible for providing the Middle Eastern immigrants on the vessels  was a man named Maher Jarad ,aka Maher al-Palestinian, He has close ties with Fagr Almat, an individual known to help smuggling operations for members of Hizballah and A l- Gama’atA l-Islamiyya. Two of the vessels the Nina Marie II and the Esperanza are known to have departed Guayaquil, Ecuador between 22-23 February 2002.

*Detainee’s credibility is suspect. He has been consistently deceptive during interviews, and he has revised his story at least three times. His inability to provide accurate basic  information about family, past employment, airlines, information on his false passport etc., suggest he has had counter-interrogation training.

*Detainee initially claimed that he was being pursued to join the Taliban in Kandahar, A F. He claimed to pay his uncle$ 25,000t o find someone who would smuggle him into the US. His uncle introduced him to Khalid who facilitated his travels to the US. The $25,000 came from his father, who is a car salesman in Kandahar, A F.

*Subsequently detainee stated that everything he has said during prior interrogations is a lie.

*Detainee’s next version of his cover story claimed that his family moved to Karachi,

PK, where he and his family have been living for five to eight years. Detainee worked at

Habiladar Factory, making coats, and at the Zikayr Carving Company for one and a half years. (Analyst note: Contradictions from first story: Detainee now lived in Pakistan versus Afghanistan. Aunt and Uncle live in Pakistan versus Afghanistan. His father is a car  salesman in Kandahar.)

*When detainee arrived at JTF-GTMO, he provided a third version of his timeline. In the third version, the detainee had two separate employers in Karachi, PK. One was a leather jacket company; the other was a machine shop. Detainee does not remember the name of either the leather company or the machine  shop. (Analyst note: Contradictions- Detainee can no longer remember the names of the companies he worked for. Detainee does not mention his aunt or uncle in this version at all. His family will pay Khaled the money only after the detainee reaches the US. Father no longer sells cars, but he now is at an oil distribution company.

Money will come from father selling car and borrowing money from friends at the oil company.)

*Detainee provided erroneous information about the educational institutions he attended.

*Ahmed Jan, the other Afghani who was captured in Mexico with the detainee, also claimed he was looking for an “uncle” in the US, for whom he had no address. (Analyst

note; This would suggest that both Afghani’s were given the same covers tory to tell if they were captured)

*Detainee claims that due to his inability to read and write, he did not know where he was at any time during his travel to the US. His facilitator,” Khaled,” held his passport and tickets until detainee had to past through checkpoints.

*Detainee admits to being able to read and write in at least Pashtu.

*Detainee claims he never knew what airline he flew on en route to the US.

(Analyst note: Airline pilots normally announced departure and arrival locations just prior to take-of and departure. Destination locations are clearly displayed in airports and announcements for flights are always made. Detainee would have, a  minimum, been  aware of where the initial flight was destined since it was departing from his home area and language(s) being used would not be foreign to the detainee-)

*Detention personnel noted,” on 22 July 2003 at 0522 after the detainee was taken to reservation. A cell search was done and an extra toothbrush and toothpaste was found and also on the ceiling was written “Pakistan” in black. (Analyst note: Indicates he can write)

*Detention personnel  commented that the detainee preaches religion to ISN

US9AF-000964DP from Quoran” (Analyst note: Indicates he can read.)

*Detainee also stated that he heard of Usama Bin Laden (UBL) through

newspapers and television in Pakistan. (Analyst note: Indicates he can read.)

*While staying at one safehouse for two months during the trip to the US, detainee was ordered to remain in the house at all times, sleeping during the day and watching television at night. Analyst note: All information above dispels detainee’s claim of inability to read and write in at least English and Pashtu. Detainee would be able to see departure and arrival information on the ticket and in the airport and information held within the passport.

There are

also constant reminders on television of station and location, and to get news from a newspaper you have to be able to read. That being the case, it would be reasonable to believe that the detainee would have the capability to understand what country he was in, what airline he was boarding, and what his destination was.

*Detainee was administered two polygraph tests  and one Computer Voice Stress

Analysis( CVSA) test since his incarceration at Bagram.

* The first polygraph was given at Bagram prior to 4 May 2003. Detainee refused to

cooperate and did not answer questions.

* The second polygraph was conducted at JTF-GTMO  on 31 October 2003. The test resulted in a No Opinion.

* A CVSA was conducted at JTF-GTMO on 6 Jan 04. The purpose of the examination was to determine  the veracity o  his denial that he ever received  combat training (Al-Qaida  operatives have received t is training) and h is claim that he was not trying to enter the US to commit terrorist-related activities. It was determined that the detainee did not respond truthfully to the following questions.

. l Have you received combat training? Detainee answered no. Deception

Indicated(D I)

. 2. Were you trying to sneak into America, to hurt Americans? Detainee

answered n o. (DI)

 (S) Intelligence Focus: JTF GTMO has determined that this detainee is of high

intelligence value due to his knowledge of:

*Illegal alien smuggling routes from the Middle East to the Americas

*Safehouse used by smugglers between the Middle East and the Americas

*Organization and personnel used in smuggling operations

*Counter-interrogation techniques

 4. (S) Detainee’s Conduct: Detainee’s overall behavior has been generally compliant and nonaggressive.

He also has a few refusals and failure to follow the guards’ instructions in his record.

 5. (S) EC Status: Detainee’s enemy combatant status was reassessed 0n 24 February 2004, and he remains an enemy combatant.

6. (S) JTF GTMO Assessment:

a. (S) Summary: Detainee is a suspected A l-Qaida terrorist captured in Mexico attempting to reach the US border. Detainee has not explained how his family, who are Afghan refugees in Pakistan could afford to pay the smuggler’s fee of $25,000 to get the detainee to the US. It is proven that the detainee has consistently provided false information during interrogations. The detainee’s continued efforts to provide false information to authorities throughout his detention is

not indicative of someone simply trying to enter the US. The detainee who knows four languages., one of which is English,-is of higher intelligence. To determine the motivation and extent of the detainee’s deception is key to determining whether or not the detainee is a highly trained terrorist. It has been determined that the detainee poses a medium risk, as he may possibly to pose a threat to the US, its interests and allies. e

b. (S) Recommendation: JTF GTMO recommends this detainee be retained under DoD control.

7. (S) Coordination: JTF GTMO notified the Criminal Investigative Task Force (C ITF) of this recommendation 0n 10 September2 004. CITF assessed this detainee on 23 April 2004 as a low risk. In the interest of national security and pursuant to an agreement between the CITF and JTF GTMO Commanders, CITF will defer to JTF GTMO’s assessment that at the detainee poses a medium risk.
