British counterterrorism “flood” Internet “positive” messages on Islam by empowering in search engines “moderate” Islamic organizations

If jihad is electronics, contrayihad will be too. This has been understood counterterrorism UK authorities have decided to collaborate with “moderate” Muslim organizations to their potential messages of ‘coexistence’ with the West encaramen to the top of the investigations in Google and other search engines. The aim is to ‘corner’ of anti-Western Islamic extremism hate Although recent studies have been very skeptical of such strategies.


Follow Up:

The Office of Security and Counterterrorism (OSCT, for its acronym in English) would be discussing plans to support “moderate” Islamic organizations in order to make them more visible through search engines and thus counteract not only the bad image of this religion among Western audiences, but also the increasing radicalization of electronic jihadism and his equally growing success among thousands of young Muslims-from birth or conversos- in the West.

“Internet Flood” with Islam “positive”

The OSCT was created last year and half, and depends on the Home Office, the equivalent of the Spanish Ministry of the Interior. According to The Register reported , British publication specializing in new technologies, the counterterrorism department plans to “flood the Internet” with “positive” interpretations of Islam. These actions include the advice of “search engine optimization consultant” Islamic organizations in seo bangkok techniques, acronym designating the Optimization Search Engines (Search Engine Optimisation).

Anyone with some experience working with websites on the Internet knows this kind of strategies that can be ‘white’ as the inclusion of specific keywords on pages so that they are preferentially taken up by the search engines, or more ‘black’ or ‘dirty’, attempting to trick the robots that crawl the pages to climb the ranking site so undeserved.

Black and white wash washing

The same process occurs in reverse, with more and more companies making ‘washed’ in the results provided by the search engines in order to eliminate, or relegate more hidden pages, unfavorable pages for people or organizations that handle this type for ‘laundering’. These actions involve an economic cost ranging between 500 and 6,000 euros, according to the ‘complexity’ of the case, according to the so-called Internet Observatory , purely private business despite its misleading name semi-similar to the official National Observatory the Telecommunication and Information Society – which recently confused the Spanish press massively through information sent by the Spanish news agency EFE also .

The Register warns of the risks of such strategies ‘optimization’, especially if they try to fool a search engine. For example, Google clearly threatens to erase their records pages try the ‘dirty tricks’ of higher ranking through illegal optimization techniques.

Support for ‘islam good’ pro-Western

UK organizations as Quilliam would benefit directly from the support of the British counterterrorism to search engines. This openly pro-Western, Islamic group named after Shaikh William Henry Abdullah Quilliam, an Englishman born in 1856 and died in 1932 he embraced Islam, and whose successors through this foundation, trying to ” help feed a genuinely British Islam native to these islands, and free of political bitter of the Arab and Muslim worlds “in a clearly opposite to the radicalized approach, ‘revolutionary’ and ‘Bolivarian’ organizations Spanish converts to support so-called ‘resistance’ in the Middle East and clear Third breath.

However, recent studies have confirmed a widely shared idea by observers of jihad against the West as that of the very limited effectiveness of online support to ‘islam good’ (‘spiritual’ and ‘democratic’) versus’ islam bad ‘from the crowds of murderers and terrorists every day hate messages are exchanged over the Internet. The latter study was published just as well in the UK by the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence ( International Center for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence, ICSR ) under the title “Countering radicalization online “( press release – summary – full text ).

Seekers: “Only terrorists upstarts”

This report, like others before it, emphasizes that jihadist groups on the Internet are not characterized by being easily found through simple search engine for mass use.With some acidity, the study notes how “it is unlikely that except the most inexperienced upstart aspiring terrorist, someone uses a search engine to find massive prohibited material”.

However, since the British counterterrorism it insists that the ‘whitening’ of Islam not only more lost aspiring addresses, one terrorist of them, the British convert of 22 years with mental age 10, recently sentenced to chain perpetual ( ND ) – but the general population to be found mostly ‘positive messages’ about Islam and its ‘authentic’ peaceful and spiritual.

Best movies of war in Iraq and some Islamic country


Ten years that started the most important conflict in this century, we realized the task remember that tape that nourishes itself from the reality of the war, to tell stories full of drama and which put into question, our humanity. The movies below are all available to watch movies online.

1. No End In Sight

What is it?
A series of interview that collect the first years of the Iraq war

Why should you watch recent movies?
The name of this documentary predicts the feeling of the film: a hopelessness about the condition of the man by placing worldly interests, common good sobrer.

Through hours of footage and interviews, director Charles H. Ferguson reviews the war from the American point of view, as the of the Iraqis. The narrative focuses on firing data and testimonies, the great virtue of not taking trials, but uncover doubts and put the facts under the glass of a sideboard.

One of the most intelligent film ejercicis on the subject

2. The Messenger

What is it?
A young officer back home and now is in charge of announcing the death to the families of soldiers killed in battle

Why should you watch it? Opera prima of Oren Moverman is an emotional film that portrays the lives of two soldiers who must face the demons in the post-war, within a relationship based on the fatality and remorse. It is interesting how it portrays the moral and spiritual decadence that causes the fear of the loss of a soldier when it tries to lead “a normal life”. Performances by Ben Foster, Woody Harrelson and Samantha Morton are heartbreaking.

3. Zero Dark Thirty

What is it?
The secret operation to assassinate Bin Laden.

Why should you watch it? Kathryn Bigelow has the strength of humanize a topic as trite and filled with curiosity as the hunt for the most wanted man in the world. Of course, that the film has its faults (predictably boring and time is freckles of jingoistic), however, manages to mix suspense, with the political drama that was reflected through the degrading bureaucracy of the American institutions.

Jessica Chastain, coupled with the scene that meets the film’s performance is the best of the tape.

4. Turtles can fly

What is it?
The life of a couple of children living in a refugee camp before the U.S. invasion

Why should you watch it?
The first movie filmed after the overthrow of S. Hussein (also winner of the FICCO, snif), focuses the hope that there was for the Iraqi people to forget a dictatorship that had hurt people. In fact, much of the plot reveals traces of a village wounded through the illusions of their children.

Throughout history, the relationship between children and the war has gone hand in hand, what makes this emotive film and interesting questions unresolved posed and his allusion to the social time living a country in full process revolutionary.

5. Armadillo

What is it?
The life of Danish soldiers imprisoned in the middle of the field of battle.

Why should you watch it?
This European film is different from the Hulk that we know about the war documentaries: complaint not interested, or not interested to have an approach to the soldiers, what Janus Metz Pedersen wants to express is how a war lives in the 21st century and the consequence within the psyche of young (and whose culture in theory is so alien to ours).

At the technical level, the way in which he films this film with different types of cameras, that experience becomes experiential and symptoms of nightmare when they begin the shootings is impressive.

6. Taxi to the Dark Side

What is it?
The torture and murder of a taxi driver by the American army

Why should you watch it?
Firstly, I will leave something clear: the tape is on the war in Afghanistan, which should not have a place in this Boom; However the history and the way in which it is narrated this Oscar-winning documentary, reflects the demons and terror caused by the war, both on victims, as in villains that they let one side of humanity and transform into monsters.

The film is visceral and raw, with its load of criticism toward the U.S. Government for using methods of torture in its intervention in the Middle East

7. The Hurt Locker

What is it?
The life of elite group dedicated to defuse bombs

Why should you watch it?
Forget for a moment that won the awarded was opposite, and better analyze the significance that has within this sub-subgenero.

This film from Kathryn Bigelow presented one of the classic conflicts of the war movies: one man’s struggle against the self-destruction of war. Renner is this soldier who finds the beauty unveiled seconds in which your life can end, and in a way, also making a distinction to this armed conflict and its meaning: the war as a drug.

Oh, and clear won the Oscar for best film.

The teaching of the Islam produces disabled persons

In a previous blogentry, I wrote that when our Director for the Middle East was in Jordan, visited the shop of a Bedouin family. The shop was clearly full of children, but when the director asked the mother how many children she had, she replied “two”. She had no disability.

In Islamic cultures, children who are born with mental or physical disabilities are a source of shame, and it is likely to be repudiated or hidden from public view.

Several months ago a man from Bethlehem visited Christian Aid Mission to talk about a Christian Center for adults and children with disabilities. Often told us, missionaries from the Center were disabled children sitting outside, left there by his Muslim parents who would never return to visit them.

The man accompanied one of the directors of the Centre to the House of a Muslim family in Bethlehem, who had 14 children, only two of which were normal. The rest had some kind of physical or mental disability. “It looked like an institution”, told us.

That caught my attention. Twelve children born into a family disabled? Was this some sort of horrible anomaly? Or is it that this type of situation is more common in Muslim families from what we know?

Unfortunately, my research has confirmed this last.

“Here are going to plunge into a dark and closed universe”, writes Nicolai Sennels, a Danish psychologist and author of “between Muslim criminals. Experiences of a psychologist in the municipality of Copenhagen”, a universe where women are forced to engage in sexual intercourse of life with members close family, where the abuse of women is apparently very extended… Where men are free to rape the women, but these often are viewed automatically as the guilty.”

One word explains the disproportionate number of mentally and physically disabled children born to Muslim families: incest.

Since their Prophet sanctioned the practice of marriage between first cousins almost 1,400 years ago, Muslims regard the inbreeding as part of their religion.

Generation after generation of consanguineous marriages (related by blood) have led to an alarming statistic. Are you ready?

Approximately half of all people living in the Arab world today are the result of consanguineous marriages.

The excess of inbreeding in Pakistan has caused people to be born with a disease called microcephaly. These people are commonly known in Pakistan as “rat people”.

In Pakistan, almost 70% of all marriages are between first cousins, 60 percent in Iraq, 40% in Syria, 42% in the Lebanon, 64% in Jordan, 67% in Saudi Arabia, and so on.(Source)

According to an article in the Times of India of 2005 relating to Pakistani families living in the United Kingdom, “Pakistani families in the United Kingdom ill produce an alarming 30% of children genetically… research, carried out by the BBC and broadcast on Tuesday to a shocked nation, it found that at least 55% of the community was married to a cousin. “It is believed that this is related to the probability that a British Pakistani family have at least 13 times more likely than the general population to have children with recessive genetic disorders”.

For Muslim marriage is not only a source of social status, but also ensures that the wealth stays within the family. It is also a protection mechanism for Muslim immigrant families who do not want their sons or daughters to marry with non-Muslims.

Almost all of these marriages are arranged, or perhaps the more appropriate word is “forced”. Half of all brides in Afghanistan, for example, have less than 15 years of age. They do not have any opinion on the matter.

Add to the widespread practice of marriage between cousins sexual abuse inflicted on many Muslim women by male relatives.

The director of a Copenhagen Centre for women victims of sexual abuse reported that 70% of nearly 1,400 women who come into contact annually with the Center come from the Middle East.Its Center is just one of 40 in Denmark.

Taking into account that the devout Muslim families do not allow their women to go out in public unaccompanied by a male family, I think that it is fair to assume that the authors of these sexually assaulted Muslim women are male members of the family.

The children born of these incestuous marriages have a high risk of being born with physical and mental disabilities.

According to an article in the New York Times in 2003, “spinal muscular atrophy and the gene that causes it, along with several other genetic disorders serious, are common in Saudi Arabia, where women have an average of six children, and where in some regions more than half of the marriages are between relatives.” The article also points out that they have been discovered links “between inbreeding and deafness and the muteness.”

Sennels research shows “that if one’s parents are cousins, the intelligence quotient low 10-16 points. “The risk of having an IQ less than 70 (criteria to be retarded ‘) increases by 400% among children of marriages between cousins”.

Disorders such as depression and schizophrenia are also much more common among the inbreeding.

In fact, Sennels says that more than 40% of the patients in the Denmark’s Sct. Hans Hospital for insane criminals and 70% of the inmates in juvenile Danish prisons are children of immigrants.

Because of the social stigma of people with disabilities, Islam does not have too many uses for them… with the exception of one.

“A study in Kabul, Afghanistan, based on autopsy of the remains of terrorists suicide, shows that about 90% suffered from serious illnesses or deficiencies such as blindness, cancer, loss of limbs or leprosy”, advises Sennels. “Some cases of Down’s syndrome may be another nasty effect of inbreeding, and al – Qaeda has been able to use to persons suffering from it.”

A perfect scenario for Islam: victims of the spread of the incest of Islam put an end to his physical and mental torment, and Islam can terrorize non-Muslims.

Christian Aid Mission he published recently the story of Sami, a disabled Muslim who escaped from Syria to Greece with the help of fellow travelers. Not being able to follow traveling with him, left him with a native Ministry assisted by Christian Aid reaching the refugees by ISIS.

The Ministry pays him a hotel room. Another Syrian, being discipleship by the Ministry, volunteered to provide lunch every day and take it in down on his back up the stairs of the hotel to medical appointments and cults of the Ministry.

One of the members of the Ministry kitchen for Sami daily and wash their clothes. Permanent housing for someone like Sami are very hard to find, but thanks to their diligent efforts, finally found a place for it in a new building. Members of the Ministry and those who have been brought to Christ are still providing for the needs of Sami.

I don’t know about you, but when I read this I was reminded of a similar story told by Jesus. When the good Samaritan found a wounded man lying next to a road, he took personal responsibility to use their own resources to care for them.

Sami, a disabled Muslim who escaped from Syria, has found refuge in a native Ministry of Greece supported by Christian Aid Mission.

Sami is perhaps one of the many victims of the teachings and practices of Islam, born disabled as a result of a marriage between blood relatives, as many children of Muslim families in Bethlehem that are left out of the Christian Center.

While I investigate Islam, am uncovering layer by layer his evil and depravity.Built on the words and example of a false prophet, for centuries Islam has hurt countless people.

It is too easy to react with resentment of those caught in the trap of Islam, rather than viewing them as victims of a system that used and abused.

Compassion, offered to people who have known only the hatred of Islam, is a striking contrast that has led many of them out of slavery and into the family of God. This is the precedent set by the indigenous ministries, assisted by Christian Aid Mission in the Middle East. Those to whom Islam has ruled out, Jesus has opened its arms to embrace them.

6 good movies about Islam

LIST CREATED BY: movie tube
One of my great passions, among many, is the cinema. I could not opt for one of the many genres that exist, practically I like them all, but if there is a class of movies that I enjoy in particular, is to faithfully reflect the daily life of different cultures to where I live. Real lives with real people, showing traditions and essences of other societies. Among them, which deal with people living enclosed in Islam are to me particularly curious, by his frequent character fundamentalist and entrenched religious exacerbation, which completely determines the lives of its women, condemning them to suffer sexist tyrannies covered in a book with thousands of year-old imposed upon them, by their sex, some bans unfair and unconscionable.


In this post, I’m going to list my favorite movies on traditional Islamic societies, which have managed to represent their habits in a way as critical as true, and on many occasions, I have even excited by its sensitivity and the anguish suffered by the protagonists. Situations that may be associated with any Muslim woman.

Erotic novel written by women, the ultimate in Saudi literature

Although it seems nothing short of amazing given the sexual repression and tight control to women in Saudi Arabia, the literature of this country in the Gulf has been born in recent times a striking literary fenomen: the emergence of a new generation of writers who fill the Arab libraries of works in which the erotic element is essential. Girls of Riyadh and 50 shades freed pdf are some of these creations that, although minority in saudi literary landscape, could mean major steps in what refers not only to the role of the woman as a creator, but also how translates your figure’s face to the public through protagonists of titles with high rates of sale. 

And it is so important that its authors are women that its protagonists belong also to the female sex. Others, for example, collects the life of a saudi teenager who cannot maintain relations with the boys of his age due to the strict social environment in which he lives. Because of this impossibility, just by entering the hidden world of Arab lesbians. Finally, however (and here one would perhaps warn a kind of “moral lesson” behind such transgression), guilt is imposed, the star redirects his life back to normalcy and marries Omar, which (in another twist to the traditional uses) has known through the web pages of contacts. SIBA al – Harez, the name that signature this work, is only the pseudonym of a 26-year-old Shiite city saudi of Al-Qatif has recognized, asked by his work, the other is a “response to the pain and alienation” of the Arabs. The fact that has not been able to show his true identity shows extent to which literature erotica written by women continues to be a dangerous “trade” in Saudi Arabia. In fact, Al- Hayat newspaper came to warn that the story is the ‘most controversial work from not only Saudi Arabia but all the Arab region’.

Girls of Riad, Rajaa Alsanea, opened this controversial path of Arab clear erotic inspiration works written by women. The text is a stark portrait of four women Saudi and his complex love life, including the homosexual skirmishes, premarital, and alcohol consumption. In Saudi Arabia, a phenomenon in lathe has been unleashed to these young writers, which might also mention Hani Nakshabandi, journalist and presenter of Al Arabiya, author of the intruder, book that recreates the epistolary relationship of the director of an Arab women’s magazine published in London by a saudi reading, which reveals all her sexual fantasies.

The success of these new narrators has earned him, as to Rajaa Alsanea, being voted as the Arab intellectual most influential in a survey by the weekly newspaper Elaph. After writing your bold and best selling girls of Riyadh, Alsanea has not hesitated to affirm in United States that “the problem is that there are a lot of restrictions in Saudi Arabia. We live in the 21st century and have traditions of the 19th. The boldness of the statements and actions of many of the new Saudi writers have earned numerous death threats, what pioneer increased still more the value of his character.

But now this approach to the erotic is us shocking in Arabic literature, the truth is that you it’s a topic that is alien to its tradition n. Already in the 15th century, the perfumed garden, Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Muhammad al – Nafzawi, became all a sexual manual developer. In more recent times, in the 1990s, the literature of women already also addressed erotic themes. It should be recalled in this respect works of the Moroccan Fatima Mernissi or Lebanese Hannan to the Sheikh, who in novels such as the story of Zahra (1994) or women of sand and myrrh (1994) to include lesbian characters and other delivered to sexual promiscuity. However, in the 20th century, there was an increase of the cenura in the sexual discourse of Arab society.

The new and groundbreaking works that we have talked about in this post in the case of Saudi Arabia shows a change of pattern that only time will tell whether it strengthens or if it becomes a mere literary anecdote.

The pastor and the police suspect that the author is the same. «Worst of all is the damage that we have caused. The two lampadarios cost $ 3,000,”laments Martín Nieto.
The fifth robbery took place two months ago. This time the target of thieves was brush of the parish.Luckily, tells the priest of Santiago, the police managed to immediately locate the perpetrators and managed to recover the brush with the alms.
Currently, the parish of Santiago has an alarm system connected with the police, which is activated when the temple is closed to the public in order to detect any movement that occurs in its interior. It was just as agents were unable to stop the author day 21 of the latter offence. The problem is that many items disappear from the churches when they are open and filled with parishioners.
The Cathedral of Santa Maria also has intruder alarms birmingham system. But the diocese wants to increase security measures. Therefore, it has asked budget a company to install surveillance cameras in this temple and the Church of the precious blood, open to tourism since last year. Two Angels at the base of the image of the Immaculate
Conception, which was exposed in December next to the altar on the occasion of his Novena disappeared in 2005. Two years earlier taken also of the high altar, a chalice of silver which was about to celebrate mass, the dean of the Cathedral, José Antonio Fuentes.
Sources, current vicar general of the diocese and delegate of heritage over the past years, points out that thefts in churches «will by gusts». The temples hold items that have good commercial outlet in the antique shops. It is the case of the angels of the immaculate conception or the child who also seized a few years earlier from the image of San Antonio.
“There have always been thefts in churches. It is not a new phenomenon,”said Cesar Garcia, Butler of the brotherhood of the Nazarene – which shares headquarters canonical with the Holy supper in Santiago–and former Chief of the Local police. “You tend to be meagre theft if causing great damage and a great sense of insecurity. We feel offended by the events in Santiago because it has been a sacrilege”, he says.
San Juan and the mountain
Measures that now think adopted in Santiago, Santa María and the precious blood reached long ago to San Juan and the sanctuary of the Virgin of the mountain. «San Juan was years ago the temple where more thefts were committed. They came to start the jewels to the Virgen de la Esperanza a Holy Wednesday and on another occasion removed the dome of a temple of 18th-century», José Manuel Martín Cisneros, Butler of the brotherhood of the Ramos recalls. Two years ago the parish decided to intensify security measures. And, for now, they are giving good results.
Whenever the Madonna of the mountain down to the city, the confraternity of the patron saint of Cáceres reinforces controls at the Co-Cathedral. On the one hand, install security cameras in the Temple so that the image remains controlled throughout the day. In addition, Local police officers move up to Santa Maria during the hours in which the Church is open the public. And at night, private, hired by the brotherhood, security guards ensure that everything is in order. In the sanctuary cameras are installed throughout the year, clarifies Joaquín Floriano, the Butler of the brotherhood. The Temple also has motion sensors similar to the Santiago, which allowed police to arrest more than one week ago the 47 year old man who hid under the passage of the Holy supper to with the loot.




Nella Jones – a Muslim psychic detective.

1975, Yorkshire (United Kingdom), in the last several weeks, women have been killed by which begins to be known as “the new Jack the Ripper“.Her conduct is macabre; bumping the head of his victims with a hammer and then parses the remains to consciousness. The police found no clues or patterns of behaviour that lead to criminal and victims, every few months, continue to appear in places disparate.

It appears in scene Nella Jones, woman who guarantees that certain psychic abilities and that, thanks to the telemetry, is a technique of perceiving details of a crime with a photograph or a piece of clothing of the victim, indicates that it could provide clues about the killer for his imprisonment. Police, desperate for the lack of evidence about the author of the crimes, accepts the help of Nella Jones.



Jones underwent two severe testing. On the one hand, several journalists closely followed all their contributions. So did a team of policemen, who controlled the unusual work of other Yorkshire agents responsible for the mission. Thanks to its so-called sixth sense, the paragnosta offered a series of data on the culprit who were exposed between October and December 1979.

Review the data that Jones had contributed police conducted a thorough investigation , but in the end did not serve them to nothing. Visions of Jones not derived police hit some and their collaboration with the detectives was finished. In short, a resounding failure of psychic reviews.

But we give a small review what Nella announced at the end of 1979 on this case.

He pointed out that she got to have flashes on the appearance of the killer and even perform portrait robot. He said that the Ripper by the name of Peter and said that sometimes I saw him driving a truck. He also said that the initials of the company that owns the truck were C and T. He also said that you saw him entering a home that could be his home. Unable to see more than the number of the portal, “6”, moreover, by the appearance of the street indicated that it might be the neighbouring town, Bradford.



All these data were collected on those dates in the scientific police journal, which published an article with a breakdown and an assessment of its validity in London.

Months later, on January 2, 1980, a police officer, Bob Ring, found a stolen car and decided to follow him. Arriving at his house the thief was arrested and when inspecting his house found certain clues suspect as bloody knives and a hammer that matched the one used against the victims.

Commissioner, the detainee confessed that he was the serial killer sought and gave evidence, telling details about the 13 murders which had been committed.

The arrest of the guilty was given by pure chance, but the press did not hesitate to reprimand the police, again pulling Nella Jones, its total ineffectiveness report the successes that this woman had made were of the most surprising.



Killer’s name was Peter Sutcliffe and, indeed, was driving a truck. Peter worked for Clark Transport, initials Nella had successful also. And curiously, Peter lived in number 6 of Gardem Lake Street, from Bradford!!


Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper


The psychic detective was successful in almost all their predictions, although in this case the detectives failed to make good use of them.Curious huh?

According to what reported the Huffington post, based on some documents revealed by Edward Snowden, the NSA used Flexispy reviews to monitor by long history of 6 important Muslim people,with the aim of finding “personal vulnerabilities” to defame them. Those sought include pornographic material.

Never mentioned the names of people who were monitored, but apparently the aim of this research was to find something with which could make look bad leaders with his followers. For example, they found that an important academic not always reviewed all the articles published and is guilty of “promiscuity in line”.

In the same way, the documents highlight that those investigated use social networks to promote radical and controversial ideas. The NSA also followed the list of contactsof its objectives and they say that three of them were “minimum contact” with somedesignated terrorist. The other three reported more frequently with leaders of extremist groups, but none of them was charged as a terrorist or a terrorist ally.

It is not the first time that the Government resorts to such research to some personalities. When they killed Osama Bin Lademan revealed that there was a largecollection of pornographic material in his lair. They do this in order to get the dirty image of the founder of Al - Qaeda.
