Is the ‘Taliban’s negotiator’ under house arrest in the UAE?

                           Agha Jan Mutasim

Various media outlets are claiming that Agha Jan Mutasim, who has been described as “a leading Taliban peace negotiator” and “one of the key Taliban leaders and who supported Afghan peace initiative,” is under house arrest in the United Arab Emirates (see this report from Dawn, which is likely a compilation from the wire services).

While we can’t confirm or deny that Mutasim is under house arrest, we are certain that he isn’t leading negotiations for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, which is the official name of the Afghan Taliban.

As we’ve noted here several times at LWJ, the Taliban have denounced Mutasim two times in the past in statements published on Voice of Jihad. The last time was on Feb. 20, when the Taliban said:

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan once again declares to all parties that Agha Jan Mutasim does not hold a position in the Islamic Emirate and neither can he represent it.

Also in that statement, the Taliban said that Mutasim’s actions are “detrimental” to both the Taliban and “the goals of the sacred Jihad.” [See LWJ report, Afghan Taliban denounces former senior official, denies involvement in peace talks.]

The Taliban previously disowned Mutasim in another official statement that was released on Voice of Jihad in August 2012. In that statement, the Taliban said Mutasim “was dismissed from his post by the leader of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in the year 2010 for stepping over his bounds and for lacking transparency in his work.”

“He currently does not hold any posts with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and neither can he represent the Islamic Emirate in any of his statements and actions,” the statement continued.

This section from LWJ‘s report on the last Taliban denunciation of Mutasim and other Taliban poseurs who have attempted to claim to represent the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan over the years bears repeating:

Mutasim is part of a circle of former Taliban leaders and spokesmen who have been expelled from the Taliban and still claim to represent the group in negotiations with the Afghan government and the US.

This group includes Wakil Ahmad Mutawakil, Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef, and Mullah Mohamed Tayeb Agha. The Taliban has openly denounced many of these leaders as “stooges” and pawns of the Afghan government and the West.Mutawakil served as the Taliban’s foreign minister in 2001 and broke ranks after Omar refused to hand over Osama bin Laden after the Sept. 11 attacks.

He surrendered to US forces in 2002 and has repeatedly tried to negotiate peace agreements.

Zaeef served as the Taliban’s ambassador to Pakistan at the time of the US invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

He was detained by Pakistani security forces in 2002 and was sent to the Guantanamo Detention Facility in Cuba before he was released in 2006. Prior to his arrest he had been considered a candidate to join the interim Afghan government.

Agha was a spokesman for Mullah Omar in the 1990s but has since fallen out of favor with the Taliban leadership.

And Mutasim’s fall from grace with the Taliban was swift. Almost immediately after being dismissed from his post in 2010, he was gunned down and left for dead in Karachi, Pakistan. Mutasim survived and fled to Turkey, where he received medical treatment.

It appears as though another Jihad commander has bitten the dust.

Who will miss him, any remaining wives that he beats on a daily basis?

                   Abu Muhammad al Ansari.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham is reported to have killed Abu Muhammad al Ansari, the leader of the Al Nusrah Front for the People of the Levant in Idlib province. The report has not been officially confirmed by the Al Nusrah Front.

Al Ansari’s death was reported by “trusted sources” to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an independent media group that covers the Syrian civil war.

According to the Observatory, “4 ISIS sleepers from Harem area entered his house last night in Ras Al-Hesen village” in Idlib province “in order to check on his [al Ansari's] health after an accident he was exposed to few days ago.” The ISIS assassination team “killed his wife, his 2 children, and both of his brothers, who were in the house.”

Al Ansari’s death has not been confirmed by the Al Nusrah Front or top jihadist leaders in the group. However there are numerous reports of his death on the social media pages of various jihadists in Syria.

The Al Nusrah Front and the ISIS, which was disowned by al Qaeda’s General Command earlier this year for failing to resolve differences with rival jihadist and Syrian rebel groups, have been clashing for months. The ISIS has targeted and killed senior Al Nusrah Front leaders in the past. The ISIS is accused of killing Abu Khalid al Suri, al Qaeda’s representative to Syria, in a suicide attack in Aleppo at the end of February.

The Al Nusrah Front’s emir, Abu Muhammad al Julani, has been at odds with Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the leader of the ISIS, after the latter attempted to subsume the Al Nusrah Front into the Islamic State in April 2013. Al Julani refused, and was backed by Ayman al Zawahiri, the head of al Qaeda.

Al Qaeda has attempted to mediate the dispute and has called on the ISIS to submit to sharia, or Islamic, courts in order to resolve the problems. Al Baghdadi has refused, and the two groups began clashing in late 2013.

At the end of February 2014, al Julani issued an ultimatum for the ISIS to end its attacks on jihadist and rebel units in Syria or the groups will destroy the ISIS in both Syria and in Iraq. He quickly backed down as al Qaeda has continued to attempt to resolve the dispute peaceably.

Premature car bomb blast kills 29 militants in Syria and of course Obama supports them

turbanbomb1Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Obama backs the dictator Assad and not the rebels seeking to overthrow him.




Whoops Obama was forced to change horses when he found belatedly that Assad had used chemical weapons on Syrian rebels.

Has Obama forgotten about his lust for so-called, “Democracy?”

Try as they will Muslim bomb making skills are woeful.


I wonder if the call it a “Work place violence?”

It’s clear these fools are not that smart.

At least 29 foreign-backed militants have been killed in Syria while preparing a car bomb in the central part of the Arab country.

According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the explosion took place on Sunday in the city of Homs.

“The death toll is likely to rise because there are dozens of people missing and body parts in the area of the blast,” the Britain-based group said.

Syria’s state news agency SANA also reported the bomb blast.

Earlier in the day, the militants carried out fresh mortar attacks against populated areas in the capital, Damascus, killing at least two civilians.

One of the mortar shells landed on Damascus Opera House in the al-Abbasyeen neighborhood, injuring five civilians in the area, SANA reported.

Citing a source at Damascus Police Command, the report added that a second mortar shell struck al-Ghassani neighborhood in the same area, injuring at least three residents and damaging nine vehicles and a house.

The latest attack came as civilian quarters of the Syrian capital have been targeted with mortar fire for the second consecutive day.

Nearly two dozen other civilians in Damascus were injured by militant mortar fire a day earlier.

Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since 2011. Over 150,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced due to the violence fueled by Western-backed militants.

According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

What Islamophobia?

Putin will have serious issues putting down jihadists in Russia and former territories he is planning on reconquering.

Just another brainwashed fool in the cult of death.  She planned to be a suicide bomber in Lithuania thinking she would die a martyr.

Lithuania: Muslima acquitted of jihad-martyrdom suicide plot, although she expressed the intention to commit jihad murder.


Apr 6, 2014

egle-kusaite-teismo-saleje-paleista-i-laisve2She had “expressed an intention to commit terror acts,” but “had no concrete plan,” and therefore she walks free. Prosecutors, however, “claim the 24-year-old had received orders to blow herself up at a military target in Russia.”

If she did, she is free to pursue such plans now, as she intended to do before. How difficult is it to develop a “concrete plan” to do such a thing?

“Lithuania Woman Acquitted of Suicide Bombing Plot,” from ABC News,

An appeals court has acquitted a Lithuanian woman who was convicted by a lower court of plotting a suicide bombing against an undetermined Russian military target.

Egle Kusaite was arrested in 2009 on suspicion of links to radical Islamist groups, including Chechen militants, and sentenced to 10 months in prison in 2013 for engaging in terrorist activities.

The appeals court overturned her conviction Friday, saying that even though Kusaite had expressed an intention to commit terror acts, she had no concrete plan.

Prosecutors claim the 24-year-old had received orders to blow herself up at a military target in Russia.

Council of Islamic Ideology declares women’s existence anti-Islamic

women-stonned-to-death-in-pakistanComment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

It is safe to conclude that there are few if any rocket scientists among the members of the Council of Islamic Ideology.


Using circular non logical logic, they classify women by type, “bad and not good.”


There is an upside to all of this.  Muslim men must be allowed to return to their objects of affection, barn yard animals, and no longer have sex with women thus bringing the unwanted explosion of new Muslim babies to a halt.

Why-the-Call-for-Disbandment-of-the-Council-of-Islamic-Ideology-CII-820x300Currently there is a movement underway to disband this organization

Pakistan Today

Islamabad - Sharia Correspondent: The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) concluded their 192nd meeting on Thursday with the ruling that women are un-Islamic and that their mere existence contradicted Sharia and the will of Allah.


As the meeting concluded CII Chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani noted that women by existing defied the laws of nature, and to protect Islam and the Sharia women should be forced to stop existing as soon as possible. The announcement comes a couple of days after CII’s 191st meeting where they dubbed laws related to minimum marriage age to be un-Islamic.

After declaring women to be un-Islamic, Shirani explained that there were actually two kinds of women – haraam and makrooh. “We can divide all women in the world into two distinct categories: those who are haraam and those who are makrooh.

Now the difference between haraam and makrooh is that the former is categorically forbidden while the latter is really really disliked,” Shirani said.

He further went on to explain how the women around the world can ensure that they get promoted to being makrooh, from just being downright haraam.

“Any woman that exercises her will is haraam, absolutely haraam, and is conspiring against Islam and the Ummah, whereas those women who are totally subservient can reach the status of being makrooh.

Such is the generosity of our ideology and such is the endeavour of Muslim men like us who are the true torchbearers of gender equality,” the CII chairman added.

Officials told Khabaristan Today that the council members deliberated over various historic references related to women and concluded that each woman is a source of fitna and a perpetual enemy of Islam.

Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood student shoots Christian teacher in the head

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Is there anything possibly good that could be said about individuals in this cult that would do such a thing?



One of the many communist goals of of Agenda 21 is population control, let them start with Muslims and the world would immediately become a safer place.

Robert Spencer Apr 3, 2014


Egyptian-Christians-protest-White-HouseIslamic law forbids non-Muslims to hold authority over Muslims. This Muslim student was apparently enraged at the insolence of this Christian teacher, who should have known his place, daring to reprimand him. And so he exerted justice. The question now will be whether he will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, even with Egypt’s present post-Muslim Brotherhood government, or whether Islamic supremacists sympathetic to his act will see to it that he gets off lightly.

“MB Student shoot [sic] Coptic teacher in the head,” by-Yousef El Bebawy for Copts United, April 2 (thanks to Maged):

A Coptic Christian teacher in Marzouk prep school in Minya was shot in the head by a student that belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group. Eyewitnesses said that the student was caught smoking in the class and was reprimanded. Therefore, he decided to take revenge of this Coptic teacher and shot him in the head while he was returning home.
