General information

First we have Muslims being elected into our U.S House and other political positions around the country, now we have them building their fighter aircraft in our Country? How convenient for the future, next we start training ISIS in America?

WebMaster:
Be sure to read the article below this one about Qatar Salafi version of Isam, not so pretty, and we are allowing them to settle here in the U.S? Are we leading to our own destruction down the road?

South Carolina is becoming home to a quiet Qatari military aircraft project

 · March 5, 2019

Qatar planes in Doha

The nation of Qatar, a tiny Gulf state known for its vast energy riches, tiny indigenous population, slave laboreconomy, and, of course, its troublesome connections to international terrorist organizations, has commenced a massive but under-the-radar spending spree in South Carolina. Through Barzan Aeronautical, a subsidiary of the Qatar defense ministry-controlled Barzan Holdings, Doha has targeted South Carolina as the location for a major military aircraft initiative. The state is home to several Qatar-friendly politicians and defense industry heavyweights.
Senator Lindsey Graham has held several face-to-face meetings with high-ranking delegations from the $320 billion Qatar Investment Authority (QIA), which has pledged to invest billions into the state. Over the past couple of years, Graham has emerged as one of the major pro-Qatar voices in the Senate. He routinely takes to television and other media platforms to repudiate Qatar’s regional adversaries, while bolstering its allies.
The top donor to South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster’s recent successful gubernatorial campaign is a major Qatari lobbyist. Between 2017 and 2018, Imaad Zuberi, a lobbyist who represents the ultra-wealthy QIA, shelled out over $50,000 for McMaster’s campaign, according to campaign finance reports. Zuberi told associates that his donations to Republicans were a way to pay for further access to politicians, according to The New York Times.
On the local level, the mayor of Charleston, which is home to a major Boeing plant, is also a friend to the Gulf state. He has “signed a declaration of understanding to encourage economic development, cultural and environmental cooperation between Charleston and Doha, Qatar’s capital city,” after meeting with Qatari investment officials, The Post and Courier reported.
Charleston is home to Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner assembly plant. Qatar recently spent over $11 billion to order 30 787s and 10 777s from Boeing. Moreover, the Qatari air force has a $6.2 billion contract with Boeing.  The Qatar-run Barzan Holdings was launched March 12, 2018, intended to act as “a commercial gateway for the defense industry in Qatar.” One week later, a subsidiary company, Barzan Aeronautical, was incorporated in South Carolina. The aircraft program appears to be in the very early stages of development. Barzan Aeronautical’s website lists a target launch date of May 2019.
A promotional video from the Qatari ministry of defense showcases the ambition of the project:
In interviews, Qatari officials have stressed that the one-year-old Barzan Holdings project is a top-priority project for advancing Qatar’s defense goals. In November, the ruler of Qatar himself paid a visit to the Barzan research and development center.
Information on the nature of the mission of Barzan Aeronautical first surfaced in Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) filings last year through the Department of Justice. A high-powered K Street law firm, Ott, Bielitzki & O’Neill PLLC, defined the Barzan Aeronautical mission as a project dedicated to “development and production of surveillance aircraft” for Qatar. Just a couple of weeks ago (without any media coverage), Barzan Aeronautical submitted its own FARA filing, describing its mission as aiding “in procurement / development of airborne ISR [Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance] systems for the foreign principal,” which is the state of Qatar.
In December 2018 and January 2019 alone, the foreign agents representing the Qatari aircraft project listed half a million dollars in lobbying expenses and revenue, according to the FARA filings. Moreover, in FARA disclosures, the K Street law firm noted it is being paid $75,000 per month for government relations services. It also reveals that an American is serving as the CEO of the front company and that its board of directors is a mix of Americans and Qataris. However, the company is 100 percent owned by the Qatar Ministry of Defence.
Barzan Holdings has quickly become a successful international advocate for Qatar’s defense industry, racking up tens of millions of dollars in mega-deals with various nations and their defense industries. Barzan has signed contracts with countless major defense and weapons companies in Turkey, France, Germany, Italy, and the United States.
At the 2018 Doha International Maritime Defense Exhibition and Conference (DIMDEX) in March, Qatar, through Barzan, scored deals with American defense industry giants such as Raytheon and Tapestry Solutions, a subsidiary of Boeing, both of which have a major presence in South Carolina. The mega-deal with the Boeing subsidiary was valued at $79 million.
Using its huge energy resources turned to wealth to promise statewide development, Qatar has racked up tremendous diplomatic and financial capital with the influential politicians and defense companies of South Carolina, enough that the al Qaeda and Hamas-funding state is apparently set to build military surveillance aircraft inside the continental United States.

HERS THE ISSUE:

Salafi violence is on the rise across the Arab world – and may be gaining a dangerous foothold in Europe

Salafism is described as “the fastest-growing Islamic movement in Europe” by Soren Kern of the New York Daily News. He accuses European leaders of failing to confront the rise of a dangerous ideology on their own turf.
Germany’s intelligence chief, Hans-George Maassen, says the number of active Salafists in his country has grown from 3,800 to 6,300 in three years, according to Deutsche Welle.  Maassen says that most recruits are men aged from 18 to 30, with families from migrant backgrounds who have struggled to adjust to their new home. Salafism provides them with a sense of belonging and purpose, he said, “giving the impression that they will go from being underdogs to top dogs”.
What is Salfism?
Salafis are fundamentalists who believe in a return to the original ways of Islam. The word ‘Salafi’ comes from the Arabic phrase, ‘as-salaf as-saliheen’, which refers to the first three generations of Muslims (starting with the Companions of the Prophet), otherwise known as the Pious Predecessors.
What do Salafis believe?
The 100-year-old Sunni-based Salafi school of thought aspires to emulate the ways of the Prophet Mohammed. Recognisable from their distinctive long white robes, long beards and flowing head scarf, Salafis are socially and religiously conservative.  Although they believe in a unified Islamic state and Sharia law, they are not always politically radical, because they regard political involvement as un-Islamic.  That said, Salafism encompasses a huge range of beliefs – extending from non-violent religious devotion at one extreme, to Salafi Jihadism at the other.
A recent documentary on Muslims extremists in Britain, Muslim Resistance, looked at a Salafi group in Luton. The film-maker Masood Khan insists that most Salafis have spent the last 20 years “trying to persuade Muslims not to get involved with [extremist] groups”.
But Dr Ghayas Saddiqui from the Muslim Parliament of Great Britain told The First Post that there was “no moderation in [the Salafis’] approach”. He added: “It is a very strict interpretation of Islam, and their attitude to both non-Muslims and Muslims who are not with them is very harsh.

Salafism can be divided into three branches: quietist Salafism, whose adherents shun political activism and concentrate on “cleansing” and teaching Islam in all its “purity”; political Salafism, which does concentrate on political commitment as an integral part of Islam through contentious debates, parliamentary participation, and founding political parties; and Jihadi-Salafism, whose followers seek to overthrow supposedly apostate regimes in the Muslim world through violent jihad.
