UK: Appeaser Theresa resigns over Brexit failure, Robert Spencer issues statement

UK: Appeaser Theresa resigns over Brexit failure, Robert Spencer issues statement

MAY 24, 2019 11:42 AM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS4 COMMENTS

Theresa May has resigned over her failure in handling Brexit, launching a Tory leadership race for a successor. Her failure expands well beyond Brexit.

Jihad Watch issued a message at the start of May that Robert Spencer was on a temporary hiatus.  As we all continue to await his return, this news prompted him to send me a statement this morning for publication :

“Theresa May was an absolute disgrace, the worst Prime Minister of Great Britain in decades and possibly centuries. It is she who confirmed the mass immigration policies that have so seriously undermined British society and who cracked down hard against all who protested, seriously eroding Britain’s centuries-long traditions of free discourse and free inquiry. Even if Britain survives as a free nation, future generations of free Britons will loathe her name.”

Theresa May equated Robert Spencer with jihad terrorists.  He talked about it in this video…

Here are a few highlights of May’s ‘legacy’ as leader which were covered by Jihad Watch beginning with the case of Asia Bibi….

  • “And while she prevents Asia Bibi and her family from settling in the U.K., and has continued to bar islamocritics such as Robert Spencer from visiting the U.K., Theresa May’s government has allowed in several preachers of Jihad. Robert Spencer notes that among them have been Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri, whose “preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.” And “the UK Home Office recently admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: ‘If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.’”In early November, Bibi’s husband, Ashiq Masih, begged Prime Minister Theresa May to grant asylum for his wife and family: “I am requesting the prime minister of Britain to help us exit Pakistan and give us asylum if she can, what we know now is that Theresa May herself blocked the granting of asylum to Bibi…”
  • Theresa May issued a statement which was fully dismissive about Islamic ideology which sanctions a range of abuses; among them: harsh punishments for blasphemy, sex slavery of infidel women,  bloody jihad against kaffirs, and the murder of gays and apostates. May said:

“There are those who conduct acts of terror in the name of Islam, but it is not in the name of Islam…On the issue of radical Islamism, British Muslims are peaceful and law-abiding who have themselves been victims of acts of terror by the far right. There are those who conduct acts of terror in the name of Islam, but it is not in the name of Islam.” 

  • Theresa May announced the end of free speech in the UK with her ridiculous declaration: “We value free speech but we also value tolerance to others.”  Note that May does not expect the the same from Islamic supremacists and the hate preachers that she has so freely allowed into Britain.
  • Theresa May applauded the Sharia when she told Brits that they could “benefit a great deal”from Sharia teachings. Now, 85 Sharia courts are operating in the country which have no place in a democratic society.  One of those ‘courts’ handed down a sentence approving of honor killing. A Daily Mail article reported that Sharia courts were operating beyond the reach of British law and oppressing women.
  • Appeaser Theresa surrendered to the EU its open immigration demands for years after Brexit, but this pledge of hers has now come to an abrupt end with her resignation.

Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson “has emerged as the bookmakers’ favorite choice to replace May.”  Johnson created uproar and was accused of “Islamophobia” last year over a burqa joke. “100 British Muslim women  requested Boris Johnson be thrown out of the Conservatives in a letter to Brandon Lewis, the chairman of the party.”  Johnson flat out refused to apologize.  Then, to the horror of the mainstream media, a poll showed that a “large majority” of Brits do not believe that  criticizing the burqa is “racist” and would in fact support banning the burqa. The hoopla faded.

Theresa May’s exit over a no-deal Brexit does however end on one positive: she “will remain in Downing Street, to shoulder the blame for what are expected to be dire results for her party from Thursday’s European elections – and to host Donald Trump when he visits” on June 3. A new leader is expected to emerge by July.

“Theresa May announces she will resign on 7 June”, by Heather Stewart, The Guardian, May 24, 2019:

Theresa May has bowed to intense pressure from her own party and named 7 June as the day she will step aside as Conservative leader, drawing her turbulent three-year premiership to a close.

Speaking in Downing Street, May said it had been “the honour of my life” to serve as Britain’s second female prime minister. Her voice breaking, she said she would leave “with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love”.

The prime minister listed a series of what she said were her government’s achievements, including tackling the deficit, reducing unemployment and boosting funding for mental health.

But she admitted: “It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit.”

May’s announcement came after a meeting with Graham Brady, the chair of the backbench Tory 1922 Committee, which was prepared to trigger a second vote of no confidence in her leadership if she refused to resign.

Her fate was sealed after a 10-point “new Brexit deal”, announced in a speech on Tuesday, infuriated Tory backbenchers and many of her own cabinet – while falling flat with the Labour MPs it was meant to persuade.

The leader of the House of Commons, Andrea Leadsom, resigned on Wednesday, rather than present the Brexit bill to parliament.

A string of other cabinet ministers had also expressed concerns, including Sajid Javid, Jeremy Hunt, Chris Grayling and David Mundell.

In particular, they rejected May’s promise to give MPs a vote on a second referendum as the Brexit bill passed through parliament, and implement the result – which they felt came too close to endorsing the idea….

Omar and Tlaib…Siding With The Enemy Yet Again

Omar and Tlaib…Siding With The Enemy Yet Again

By Diane Sori – May 19, 2019082Share on FacebookTweet on Twitter

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

Once again, Israel faces a barrage of deadly rocket attacks by terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad. We support Israel 100% in its defense of its citizens…To the Gazan people — these terrorist acts against Israel will bring you nothing but more misery. END the violence and work towards peace – it can happen!” 
 President Donald Trump’s message to the “Gazan” people not the “Palestinian” people…take note

When someone runs for office in these United States one is supposed to not only have America’s best interests at heart but that of her allies as well. When someone runs for office in these United States one is not supposed to vocally, in print or online come out and support U.S. terrorist designated groups nor raise money for said groups. And when someone runs for office in these United States one takes an oath to uphold the entirety of the Constitution…not pick and choose the parts they want to uphold

And yet there are two women who are doing just that as well as using their 15 minutes of “political infamy” to not only outwardly side with an enemy against both America and her staunchest ally Israel, but who have picked up Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s proverbial knife to continue on with his self-initiated stabbing of Israel in the back. And they’re doing so no matter that theirpolitical higher-ups have “politely” suggested they stop.

So it’s now come down to a game of words…or should I say twitter fingers…as both newly elected Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have not reigned in their predominantly anti-Israel comments and sentiments. Knowing well that there is now a different set of rules for muslims in these United States…as in say as you wish with America’s allegiances be damned and do so knowing you won’t be stopped…means those in power fear that both you and those vile sorts you support will do unto them the very violent actions you so happily condone they do unto Israel.

And really, if not fear of muslim reprisal here in the U.S…fear of our streets running “red”with we infidel’s blood…why else would these two muslimas still be sitting in the halls of our government spewing out their traitorous rhetoric against an ally when there are legalities in place to “expel” them both from Congress

Simply, both Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas operatives who have made it clear that they support Iranian backed terrorists in their almost daily onslaught against Israel as well as heralding their support for Yassir Arafat’s made-up people known as “Palestinians.” And on May 5th, Omar, in an attempt to justify Hamas’s attack on Israel, tweeted while Israel was being bombarded by what amounted to roughly 700 Hamas rocket attacks against its civilian populations and cities that, and I quote: “How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends? The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”

Really Omar, how’s this for truth about your “cycles of violence”…in the past year alone, besides rocket attacks, Israel’s southern communities have endured a barrage of incendiary devices being launched from Gaza including balloons filled with explosives… balloons that have burned fields, greenhouses and homes…balloons causing untold destruction, hardship, injuries and even death. 

In fact, the President of the American Islamic Forum For Democracy, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a truly moderate muslim, has publicly criticized Ilhan Omar for her recent tweets regarding Hamas’ renewed violence against Israel. Recently on Fox News program ‘America’s Newsroom,’ Jasser stated that, “She needs to look at her own talking points. If she truly is about universal human rights and humanitarianism, there’s no cycle. This is started and can be ended by Hamas’s terrorist actions.” Adding that,“My question to her is if she cares about Muslim civil rights and cares about humanitarianism, then why doesn’t she call for them to stop the violence? Why doesn’t she call for an Arab Spring in the Palestinian areas against their tyrants which are Hamas and call for a new peaceful leadership?…And, unfortunately, there’s nothing that Israel or America can do right. And, no matter what terrorists like Hamas do, she will continue to apologize for them.” 

And how right Dr. Jasser is for Ilhan Omar conveniently forgets that it’s always Hamas… Iran’s proxy Hamas…who initiates such attacks against Israel not Israel against Hamas or against those living in Gaza. Also, Omar forgets or doesn’t care that in 1997 the U.S. declared Hamas a “foreign terrorist organization,” and that in 2007, Hamas’ Ahmad Bah, the then-acting speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, publicly stated that Hamas’ intention was to destroy America and “call on allah to annihilate every American. 

Now add in that Canada, Egypt and the European Union have also designated Hamas a terrorist group with even Jordan…minus the actual designation…banning Hamas from its country. And the U.K., Australia and New Zealand have specifically designated Hamas’ military wing…cowards always covering their faces…as a terror group, and that’s in addition to Saudi Arabia banning not only Hamas itself but their parent organization, the ever infamous Muslim Brotherhood, as well.

And Ilhan Omar knows…as do we all…that it’s Iran who directly backs and arms Hamas militarily, financially and politically. Yet Omar remains unusually silent to National Security Adviser John Bolton announcing on Sunday, May 5th…the second day of the newest Israeli/Gaza conflict…that the U.S. is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region, a region which includes the Middle East. Adding that the move was in response to “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” and that “unrelenting force” will meet “any attack on U.S. interests or those of its allies”…allies being Israel…surely helped shut Omar’s mouth now didn’t it.

Now as for avowed Palestinian mouthpiece Rashida Tlaib…she also took to tweeter on May 5th, in response to a New York Times, May 4th article, Gaza Militants Fire 250 Rockets, and Israel Responds with Airstrikes. Saying the article and most especially the title promotes a “lack of responsibility on Israel,” Tlaib ignores that Israel has every right to defend herself against this or any rocket attacks against its civilian populations. And I quote Tlaib’s own words, “When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free? Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families.” 

Lack of responsibility on Israel’s part”…Rashida Tlaibknows nothing about which she speaks.How so…here are but four key facts

  1. When Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005 in an effort to bring some semblance of peace to the region, the Jewish farmers left their greenhouses and hothouses intact in order to help aid the Gazans…notice I called them what Trump called them…in what could have been a profitable food stuffs business just as it had been for the Jewish farmers. But instead of feeding the people and realizing what a gift this was, Hamas operatives burnt down said greenhouses and hothouses as well as synagogues, thus taking food and monies out of their own people’s pockets and mouths and by denial putting it into theirs alone. 
  2. After Israel vacated Gaza, they still continued to supply goods, services, and medical supplies to the people of Gaza even after they, in a supposedly “democratic election,” chose to be governed by terrorists…by Hamas. And yet even while the current rocket barrage was ongoing Israel allowed key fuel shipments from Israel into Gaza to “avoid a humanitarian crisis”…how’s that for taking “responsibility” Ms. Tlaib. 
  3. Over these many years numerous countries have sent huge amounts of both economic and humanitarian aid into Gaza…we’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars in such aid. But the people never received that aid…instead seeing both monies and aid being “stolen by Hamas”… ”stolen” to be used to help fund its propaganda machine and its terrorist operations against Israel. In fact, just last month Hamas forcibly shut down Gazan protests by those who were marching against the misuse of said economic and humanitarian aid…misuse regarding terrorism infrastructures, government corruption, and payoffs. 
  4. Both Tlaib and Omar must stop whining that Gaza is an “occupied territory” for to be “occupied” one has to be not only living under the control of the “occupier” but the “occupier” must have a physical presence in said territory…Israel has neither. In fact, not a single Jew or Israeli lives in Gaza as the 10,000+ Jews who were living in Gaza were relocated elsewhere in 2005, “ethnically cleansing”  Jews from Gaza if you will. Since then Gaza has been under total control of Hamas (and its puppet master Iran), hence it is not an Israeli  “occupied territory.” All that has or has not happened in Gaza is the sole responsibility of Hamas…period. 

And a few other things neither Ilhan Omar nor Rashida Tlaib will like regarding Hamas’ latest attack on Israel. First, Saudi Arabia’s leading “intellectuals and journalists” have once again openly sided with Israel against Hamas* as they expressed hope for Israel’s “safety and victory”… yes…”victory.” And by their verbally attacking Hamas and its policies…most especially its firing rockets into Israel’s civilian areas…these Saudis have laid the blame directly on Hamas, not Israel, for all the problems in Gaza. Some even went so far as to say that Hamas was acting on direct orders from Tehran and that such actions were most likely a misplaced form of retaliation for Trump’s May 3rd tightening of sanctions on Iran.

Second, on May 5th in response to both Omar’s and Tlaib’s tweets, Iranian-born now Australian Shia Imam Mohamad Tawhidi (@Imamofpeace), President of the Islamic Association of South Australia, called both these women out by name saying that, “Remember that time @Ilhan and @RashidaTlaib condemned Hamas’ terrorism? Neither do I.” Seems like some of their own brethren are now seeing the danger these two muslimas pose to peace in the region, and yet both remain sitting in the halls of Congress.

So while Israel continues to forge new friendships and alliances with key Arab nations and even with some of islam’s more “moderate” religious leaders, Israel’s ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon recently stated in regards to this latest altercation that killed four Israelis, “Iran was behind everything” which is happening in the Middle East. 

And shock of all shocks even the E.U. and the U.N. are now condemning Hamas as well as Islamic Jihad…yet another Gaza-based terrorist group with direct ties to Iran. And why also Islamic Jihad…because Islamic Jihad has said they will “not abide by any ceasefire agreement” vowing instead to “shoot missiles” directly into Tel Aviv.

In fact, not only did U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres state that he “condemns in the strongest terms the launching of rockets from Gaza into Israel, particularly the targeting of civilian population centers,” but European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini has also called for a halt to Hamas’“indiscriminate rocket attacks”  being launched from Gaza. And surprisingly, Germany’s deputy government spokesperson, one Ulrike Demmer, said the German government strongly condemns Hamas’ attacks on Israel adding that, “Israel has the right to defend it’s security and respond appropriately to attacks.”

So as it stands now as I write this article, last Monday, May 6th, Egypt once again brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas…their eighth ceasefire within a year’s time. And while Egypt’s intentions are honorable such ceasefires always seems to mean in the end that, “Israel ceases and Hamas fires.”

And Islamic Jihad’s newest threat has led Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu to issue a statement that “the campaign is not over yet” and that “the IDF was continuing preparations for military action in Gaza”… actions I believe are long overdue especially since Iran wants Hamas to “up the pressure” on Israel.

And Ilhan Omar and Rashida Talib, via their tweets and hateful words of condemnation against Israel and not against the actions of Hamas, have now positioned themselves to be a direct detriment to both the United States and Israel. Traitorous actions if you ask me… actions counter to our Constitution. And if one cannot abide by the oath they took to uphold the Constitution…and that includes supporting our allies in this case Israel…then one needs to be “expelled” from Congress x two.
——————————————————————-
*The Saudi tweet translates as follows: “Our hearts are with you. May Allah protect Israel and its people. We will not let the treacherous hand of Iran and its agents in Gaza reach the Israeli people. It’s time to say this out loud: confronting the terror of Hamas is the responsibility of all the countries in the region and of the international community [as a whole], not only of Israel.”

Jayda Fransen Found Guilty Of Speech “Stirring Up Hatred”

Jayda Fransen Found Guilty Of Speech “Stirring Up Hatred”

MAY 13, 2019 1:00 PM BY HUGH FITZGERALD41 COMMENTS

A former deputy leader of Britain First has been sentenced to 180 hours community service over a speech she made in Belfast.

Her trial was swift:

“Jayda Fransen, 33, was found guilty of stirring up hatred during a speech about Islam in August 2017.

“She was also convicted for separate comments at a peace wall in the city.

“Convicting Fransen, of Moat Avenue in Donaghadee, County Down, a judge said her words were “a general, vehement attack against a religious group.”

“”The speech was made during the “Northern Ireland Against Terrorism” event two years ago. Britain First leader Paul Golding, 37, and two other English men, John Banks and Paul Rimmer, were previously acquitted on similar charges.

“They were accused of using threatening, abusive or insulting words intended to stir up hatred or arouse fear.

“During the trial, defense lawyers argued that each of the accused was entitled to freedom of expression, no matter how offensive their speeches may be.

“The court heard that Fransen told those gathered at the rally that there was no moderate version of Islam and that “these people are baying for our blood”.

Comment:

As the celebrated apostate ibn Warraq has said, “there are moderate Muslims, but Islam itself is not moderate.”

Fransen knows that there is no “moderate” version of the Qur’an and hadith. There is only one Qur’an for all Muslims. The hadith, too, remain the same for all members of the umma. .There are those “moderate Muslims”” who choose to ignore the 109 Qur’anic verses commanding Muslims to “fight” and to “kill” and to “smite at the necks of” and to “strike terror in the hearts of” Unbelievers, but those verses remain in the Qur’an, immutable, with only the milder, earlier, “Meccan” verses being abrogated by the harsher, later, “Medinan” verses. In claiming that there is “no moderate” version of Islam Fransen is simply recognizing this bleak reality.

“She says that “these people are baying for our blood.” Whom does she mean? Not every last Muslim. Clearly, “these people’” means those Muslims who want to dutifully follow the commands to wage jihad against the Unbelievers. The Muslim Believer who reads, and attempts to follow, or hep others to carry out, such Qur’anic verses as 2:191-193, 3:151, 4:89, 5;51, 8:12, 8:60, 9;5,9:29,47:4, and 98:6, that tells him to fight against and to kill the Unbelievers, “the most vile of created beings,’” is surely “baying for the blood” of non-Muslims.

Fransen added: “Islam says every single one of you wonderful people here today deserves to be killed.”

Again, she is talking about Islam, not all Muslims. The 109 Qur’anic verses that command violent Jihad (fight, kill, smite, sow terror)against the Unbelievers (“every single one of you wonderful people here today”) are firmly based on the idea that the Unbelievers “deserve to be killed.” Is Fransen to be punished for pointing this out?

“Those attending the rally were then told it was time for the world to come together against “the one common enemy.”

Some apologists for Islam like to claim that Muslims are opposed only to people in the West, not because they are Unbelievers but because Muslims resent the West’s “colonial past,” during which Muslims suffered. This ignores the fact that European colonialism scarcely affected most of the Arab world. In North Africa only Algeria was a colony in the classic sense. In the Middle East, the Arabian peninsula was off-limits to Unbelievers, save for the entrepôt of Aden, which resupplied ships on the England-to-India route, and a handful of British garrisons on the upper Gulf coast, designed to keep the peace among the local rulers and tribes. The British held mandates for Iraq and Palestine, the French held the mandate for Syria/Lebanon; both mandatory authorities were there to prepare the local Arabs for self-government (and, in Western Palestine, to do the same for the Jews). Mandates were not colonies.

Islam had been waging war on non-Muslims for more than a thousand years before “European colonialism” came to full flower. During the 1,400 years of its existence, Islam’s adherents have been waging war not just against Western Christendom, but against all non-Muslims: Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jains, and other even smaller groups. This endless war is not one of Islam versus the West, but of Islam versus All the Rest. And it is the recognition of this shared victimhood at the hands of aggressive Islam that led Jayda Fransen to call for unity among the many different victims of Islam, allied against “the one common enemy.” There was nothing inaccurate in her description of Islam; in defining all non-Muslims as its enemy, Islam logically becomes for them “the common enemy.”

“The judge told the court: “I’m satisfied these words were intended to stir up hatred and arouse fear.”

How did Jayda Fransen “stir up hatred” of Muslims? She did not suggest that Muslims, as individuals, should be hated. She knows there are Muslims who ignore large parts of the Qur’an. She did not call for violence. And there was no violence following her speech. She simply was pointing out how normative Islam views the Unbelievers, Given how many apologists for Islam continually insist on the “peace” and “tolerance” of Islam, she offered a most useful and necessary corrective.

“He also found her guilty over a separate, filmed incident at a Belfast peace wall in December 2017.

“On that occasion, the court heard that Fransen declared the “Islamification” of Britain would lead to similar walls to separate the two sides.

Fransen was predicitng that an ever-larger Muslim population in the U.K. would lead to two parallel societies, One would consist of those Muslims who refuse to integrate into British society, reject its laws and customs, and hope to live, within the U.K., by Muslim rules and principles. These are the True Believers. As against them would be all others — Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, and those “moderate” Muslims who reject much of what is contained in Islam’s texts and teachings. Between the two groups, there would be an invisible mental wall separating them, and perhaps many real walls, too, dividing Muslim areas from non-Muslim ones. Fransen’s prediction about “islamification” leading to such walls may or may not come true, but it is a legitimate worry; we already have hundreds of No-Go areas all over Europe, where non-Muslims fear to enter. She should not have been punished for alerting her audience to this consequences of “islamification.”

“During sentencing on Friday, a defense lawyer for Fransen said she had now made her home in Northern Ireland.

“He also said she intended to lodge an appeal.

“He told the court no actual violence was occasioned as a result of Fransen’s conduct.

“Sentencing her, the judge said the words she used were “unlawful”, adding that normally a custodial sentence would be imposed.

What was “unlawful”–or untrue — about Jayda Fransen’s words? Nothing. We can only conclude that British justice has reached such a sorry state that judges now treat as “unlawful” those statements about Islam which may be perfectly true, but which must not be said lest non-Muslims think worse of Islam. That, of course, would never do.

In Philadelphia, The Muslim American Society Regrets “The Oversight”

Hugh Fitzgerald: In Philadelphia, The Muslim American Society Regrets “The Oversight”

MAY 8, 2019 4:00 PM BY HUGH FITZGERALD60 COMMENTS

At the Muslim American Society  (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia this past April, young children sang songs in praise of torture and murder, pledging that they would “chop off the heads” of the Jews in Israel, and subject them “to eternal torture.”The children were videotaped by  adults belonging to the MAS, who then proudly posted the Arabic-language video on the MAS Facebook page. Unfortunately for the Muslim American Society, that video was seen by members of MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute).who translated the Arabic, and posted the video, with English-language subtitles, and a transcript, at their own site.  This caused an immediate furor, with expressions of horror at the homicidal hate the children had been taught to express.Here’s the story:“A national Muslim group says it will conduct an investigation into an event at a Philadelphia Islamic center last month during which a group of youngsters sang songs it said were not “properly vetted,” calling that “an unintended mistake and an oversight.”“Youngsters at the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in North Philadelphia are shown in video footage speaking in Arabic during a celebration of “Ummah Day,” said the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a Middle East monitoring organization. One girl says “we will chop off their heads” to “liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque” in Jerusalem, according to MEMRI.
“While we celebrate the coming together of different cultures and languages, not all songs were properly vetted,” the Muslim American Society, based in Washington, said in a statement issued on May 3. “This was an unintended mistake and an oversight in which the center and the students are remorseful. MAS will conduct an internal investigation to ensure this does not occur again.”
“Representatives of MAS did not respond to requests for additional comment on May 4.  The nonprofit has more than 50 chapters throughout the United States, according to its website.“As a faith-based organization dedicated to moving people to strive for God-consciousness and a just and virtuous society, we affirm our long-standing position on our shared values of humanity. We stand resolutely in our condemnation of hate, bigotry, Islamophobia, xenophobia, racism, anti-Semitism and all the illnesses of hate that plague our society,” MAS said in its statement.
“According to MEMRI, one girl reads: “We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling his promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.”
“In other videos, students sing songs about the “blood of martyrs” and “Rebels, rebels, rebels.”
“The videos were posted on the center’s Facebook page, the media monitoring group said, but the videos included in the MEMRI report appear to have been taken down from the center’s page.“The Anti-Defamation League in Philadelphia called the incident “extremely disturbing.”“Children should not be indoctrinated to hate. These young people should never have been asked to make speeches and dance and lip-sync to songs that glorify violence against Jews and the State of Israel. The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians is deeply complex and painful on all sides, and the only chance for a peaceful future is to teach our children to pursue peace,” the statement read.This event happened in April. But the Muslim American Society (MAS) expressed its supposed regret only weeks later, after a video of it (with the Arabic translated into English), appeared on the site of MEMRI, where it attracted much unfavorable attention.Until then, not a single Muslim adult who was present during the children’s horrific expression of murderous hate apparently objected to it.  And why would they? Adults were the ones who had to have taught the children what to say, and what to sing, to have supplied them with their scripts, and rehearsed with them what they had memorized, Someone decided that the video was so inspiring that it ought to be put up at the Facebook page of the Philadelphia chapter of the Muslim American Society, and it was. Many Muslims must have seen it there; none of them objected to the video or called for it to be taken down. Only after MEMRI had posted the video at its own site, with what the children said translated into English, was that video removed from the MAS Facebook page.MAS then claimed that it had all been an “unintended mistake,” a failure of “vetting,” and that the whole matter would be investigated. This is nonsense, of course, for no one was simply making a “mistake” in composing such lines for children to memorize and recite, rehearsing with them, listening proudly as they pledged to torture and kill Jews in Israel, videotaping the performance, and then posting it at the Facebook page of the Philadelphia chapter of the Muslim American Society. No MAS member thought there was anything wrong with this performance. They were proud of their would-be Jihadis. But they had not counted on MEMRI, which found the video at the Facebook page of MAS Philly, translated the Arabic, and made that video, with the transcript, available to the world.At MAS they must have been thinking: “How dare those Infidels listen in on what our little children happen to babble about!  Have those Jews no respect for privacy? Do we post what they whisper to each other in their synagogues?” But here’s what they said:   “We stand resolutely in our condemnation of hate, bigotry, Islamophobia, xenophobia, racism, anti-Semitism and all the illnesses of hate that plague our society.”Of course.  Nothing says “we stand resolutely in condemnation of antisemitism” like promising to “chop of the heads” of Jews.It was all an “oversight.” A case of insufficient vetting. “We at MAS Philly will get to the bottom of this. A few months ago a visiting imam, Abdelmohsen Abouhatab, made remarks at the Al Aqsa Islamic Society, that some people considered antisemitic. And our mosque officials, who had no idea what this imam had been preaching, quickly apologized, expressing surprise that an imam could have uttered such insensitive remarks. It’s no different with this disturbing video. As soon as it came to our attention, we expressed our deepest regrets. We at MAS Philly solemnly pledge: we will get to the bottom of this.”Mendacious words to that effect.“War is deceit.” said Muhammad, so here’s another possible line of inquiry for the MAS Philly to throw out there:“Perhaps the children were misled by someone intending to show Muslims in a bad light. Who, after all, benefits from publicizing that performance? We took the video down from our Facebook page just as soon as we were alerted that someone had posted it;  truth to tell, none of us had even noticed it. Lots of stuff gets posted at our site by all kinds of people; we don’t pay much attention.. We’re still trying to figure out how that video was made.Some people say it must have been Zionists. Without wanting to rush to judgement, we can’t help but notice that the people who run MEMRI are Israelis, so we will of course be looking into that angle as well. Could there have been a setup all along, in which little Muslim children were merely the useful pawns of those trying to smear the image of Islam? It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on. But I can give you my word: we will follow every lead.”“Meanwhile, we want to join our Jewish brothers and sisters in expressing dismay at this video and our  “oversight” in letting it appear. We will make every effort to ensure that such oversights do not happen again.”That may satisfy the terminally naive, but it should fool no one else. The Phlladelphia chapter of  the Muslim American Society was caught in flagrante delicto, and now its members realize that they must be careful what videos they put on-line. MEMRI is watching. MEMRI can translate from Arabic and Farsi. MEMRI can post videos on-line. The Muslim Society of America is prepared to deceive, but it wasn’t prepared for that.

Rapper Snoop Dogg Defends Nation of Islam Leader Against Facebook, Calls Him “Dear Brother”

Rapper Snoop Dogg Defends Nation of Islam Leader Against Facebook, Calls Him “Dear Brother”

MAY 5, 2019 9:15 AM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS60 COMMENTS

“Louis Farrakhan was one of several leading figures banned from Facebook and Instagram over the weekend for spreading dangerous hate speech”, but he has stern support from popular rapper Snoop Dogg which is worrying, given his status among many youth who deem him to be a role model. Snoop Dogg called Farrakhan a ‘dear brother’ and said he would continue to share Farrakhan’s videos. He dared Facebook to ban him as well.

There is a compelling reason for Snoop Dogg’s support of Farrakhan. He joined the Nation of Islam (NOI) a decade ago when he boasted at that time about being an “advocate for peace” despite the NOI being anything but peaceful. Recall Louis Farrakhan’s infamous speech…

“Death is sweeter than to continue to live and bury our children, while white folks give the killer hamburgers.

“Death is sweeter, than watching us slaughter each other, to the joy of a 400-year-old enemy. Yes, death is sweeter.

“The Quran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says, ‘Retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain.’ Retaliation is a prescription from God, to calm the breast of those whose children have been slain.

“So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.”

Farrakhan has also oddly claimed to be Jesus, and promised to “bring about the end of the civilization of the Jews”

Snoop Dogg is as violent-minded  like Farrakhan. His popularity surged after his Trump assassination 2017 video that drew 6 million views, “with hardly any marketing” after only four days.  He also dropped F-bombs at Kanye West last year for supporting Trump. Yet, six months before that, he promoted a Christian album, “Bible of Love“. He also conveniently claimed to be “born again”. Now, he’s back to promoting the Nation of Islam hatemonger, Louis Farrakhan under a fake umbrella of peace and encouraging his young fans to support Farrakhan….

If you’re down with it like I’m down with it, post your favourite Mr. Farrakhan videos on your Instagram and Facebook page….Show some love to a real brother.

“Snoop Dogg Dares Facebook To Ban Him For Supporting Louis Farrakhan”, by Cory Atad, ET Canada, May 4, 2019:

Minister Louis Farrakhan was one of several leading figures banned from Facebook and Instagram over the weekend for spreading “dangerous” hate speech, but he has at least one celebrity on his side.

In a post on Instagram, Snoop Dogg called Farrakhan is “dear brother” and said he would continue to share the minister’s videos, daring Facebook to ban him as well.

“How the f**k y’all gonna ban Minister Louis Farrakhan for putting the truth out there?” Snoop said. “I stand with him. I’m with him. Ban me, motherf**ker.”

Farrakhan, a leader of the Nation of Islam, regularly engages in antisemitic and homophobic speech, as well as spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories.

British Activist Sentenced for Denying Existence of Moderate Islam

British Activist Sentenced for Denying Existence of Moderate Islam

MAY 3, 2019 2:00 PM BY DANIEL GREENFIELD51 COMMENTS

No one is put on trial for negative comments about Christianity or Judaism. This unhealthy exception stigmatizes political speech and suppresses criticism of one religion.

Robert Spencer had previously blogged about the Fransen case. This is what he wrote.

What they were really doing was calling attention to Muslim rape gangs, which have operated freely in Britain for years because police and other authorities were too afraid of being called “racist” to do anything about them. But that’s “hostility” to Islam and Muslims, and so Fransen and Golding must be imprisoned.

Now the inevitable sentence is in.

Jayda Fransen, 33, was found guilty of stirring up hatred during a speech about Islam in August 2017.

She was also convicted for separate comments at a peace wall in the city.

Convicting Fransen, of Moat Avenue in Donaghadee, County Down, a judge said her words were “a general, vehement attack against a religious group”.

The speech was made during the “Northern Ireland Against Terrorism” event two years ago.

What did Jayda actually say?

The court heard that Fransen told those gathered at the rally that there was no moderate version of Islam and that “these people are baying for our blood”.

She added: “Islam says every single one of you wonderful people here today deserves to be killed.”

Those attending the rally were then told it was time for the world to come together against “the one common enemy”.

The judge told the court: “I’m satisfied these words were intended to stir up hatred and arouse fear.”

Which of these comments are factually untrue?

The Koran does command the deaths of infidels. The non-existence of moderate Islam is a point asserted by countless Muslim and non-Muslim leaders. Like Erdogan.

“There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it,” Turkey’s Islamic leader has said.

Will the court send him to jail for denying the existence of moderate Islam?

Italy: Salvini Proposes Security Services Do More to Monitor Islamic Cultural Centers

Italy: Salvini Proposes Security Services Do More to Monitor Islamic Cultural Centers

APR 28, 2019 10:52 AM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS26 COMMENTS

“Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has outlined proposals for the security services to do more to observe and root out extremism in the country’s Islamic cultural centres.”

It is high time that a Western leader set such an example. The Muslim community should be eager to help and expose jihadist elements and hate preaching from within their communities, but many Muslim groups instead facilitate the spread of such doctrine by levying false “islamophobia” accusations whenever discussions are raised about the jihad and its doctrines, rooted in Islamic texts.

Catholic churches were heavily surveilled in Italy during Mafia investigations — and not only in Italy but also in New York City.  It is no secret that some mosques and Islamic centers are hotbeds of jihadi doctrine, funded by Saudi petro-dollars as well as by Turkey, while Iran infiltratesWestern countries through a fifth column and has promoted its jihadist doctrine through its Islamic culture centers.

Salvini Demands Security Services Increase Observation of Islamic Cultural Centres”, by Chris Tomlinspon, Breitbart, April 26, 2019:

Populist Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has outlined proposals for the security services to do more to observe and root out extremism in the country’s Islamic cultural centres.

Salvini made his case for increased security measures during a press conference this week at the Interior Ministry, highlighting the recent Sri Lanka terror attack that killed some 250 people over the Easter weekend, saying that Italians needed more clarification on the extremist elements within the Islamic community, Il Giornale reports.

The populist League party leader also singled out an incident that occurred in Rome this week in which a Muslim migrant had stabbed a homeless Georgian man on a bus after noticing his crucifix necklace. “Rome does not deserve certain scenes,” Salvini said in reference to the incident and added that it did need more security.

“According to the data of the updated census of Islamic presences in Italy to date there are 1,382 Islamic cultural associations, of which 1,068 are also used as a place for prayer,” Salvini said and added, “Obviously it is full of good people but there are also realities underlined by the police to identify the presence of fanatics and extremists.”

One of the proposed measures will see police and security services take more time to find out what is being preached inside mosques and cultural centres in order to have better control over forms of extremism and avoid radical hate preaching.

The populist Italian coalition government has already been particularly effective at combatting terrorist plots and has led Europe in the number of deportations of migrant jihadists….

Sri Lanka: Cardinal Believes Muslim Envoys Who Assure Him That the Jihad Bombings Had “No Connection to Islam”

Sri Lanka: Cardinal Believes Muslim Envoys Who Assure Him That the Jihad Bombings Had “No Connection to Islam”

APR 26, 2019 12:00 PM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS60 COMMENTS

The Catholic archbishop of Colombo, Malcolm Ranjith, “met with ambassadors of Islamic countries who expressed condolences over the deadly Easter Sunday suicide bombings and assured him, he said, that there was ‘no connection to Islam.’” No one who thinks could possibly take this seriously. To understand the 1,400-year link between bloody jihad conquest and normative Islam, read The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS. Muhammad also instructed his followers that “war is deceit” (Bukhari 4.52.268).

Yet Cardinal Ranjith believes the ambassadors, who were from countries including Turkey (where leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan aims to “decimate” the Kurds, etc., and had Turkish soldiers recite the Qur’an before going out to battle them); Pakistan (known for its cruel blasphemy laws and violent persecution of Christians);  Egypt (where Muslim Brotherhood violent persecution of Christians continues); Qatar (a Salafi state funder of jihad terror); and Saudi Arabia (a Wahhabi state funder of jihad terror). Ranjith was so pleased by the meeting that he fell for the ambassadors’ words of deceit, stating: “We are very happy and thankful to the ambassadors of the Islamic countries for having coming here to express their solidarity with us.”

Ranjith stands in stark contrast to high-ranking Vatican Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, who understands the nature of the jihad. Sarah has compared “the modern influx of Muslim migrants to the invasions of barbarian tribes that ultimately brought down the Roman Empire in a.d. 475.”

“Sri Lanka Cardinal Says Muslim Envoys Assured Him Bombings Had ‘No Connection to Islam,’” by Patrick Goodenough, CNS News, April 25, 2019:

(CNSNews.com) – The Catholic archbishop of Colombo met Wednesday with ambassadors of Islamic countries who expressed condolences over the deadly Easter Sunday suicide bombings and assured him, he said, that there was “no connection to Islam.”

The Islamic terrorist group ISIS claimed responsibility for eight bombings, whose targets included three churches and four hotels. The death toll has continued to rise, reaching 359 on Wednesday.

Sri Lankan police said eight suicide bombers have been identified. Deputy defense minister Ruwan Wijewardene said one was a woman and that most were well-educated and from well-to-do families. At least 58 people have been arrested as investigations continue.

A video released by ISIS’ media arm showed eight alleged perpetrators pledging allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. All are masked except one, identified as Zahran Hashmi, a radical Sri Lankan Muslim imam.

The ambassadors of more than a dozen Muslim countries – among them Turkey, Pakistan, Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Iran – called on the archbishop, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith.

“We are very happy and thankful to the ambassadors of the Islamic countries for having coming here to express their solidarity with us,” Ranjith told local media after their meeting.

He said the ambassadors had given their assurance that “what has happened is not something political or religious; it is something that has been probably the result of some misguided people, and maybe there are other forces behind those misguided people, but they are not – no connection to Islam.”

Ranjith said he told the envoys that Sri Lanka’s Catholics appreciate the country’s Islamic community, and that the attacks should in no way “harm the harmony and peace that exists between us – Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims together.”…..

Ben Shapiro Destroys Leftist Hypocrisy on Terrorism (on New Zealand and Sri Lanka Terror Attacks

Ben Shapiro recently drew attention to a strange phenomenon. When leftist politicians responded to the New Zealand mosque shootings in Christchurch, they were quick to name the victims (Muslims) and to condemn the ideology of the attacker (white supremacy and Islamophobia). When they addressed the Easter Sunday church bombings in Sri Lanka, however, they wouldn’t name the victims (calling them “Easter worshippers” rather than “Christians”) and they certainly wouldn’t condemn the ideology of the attackers (Islam). Why the hypocrisy? David Wood takes us through some video clips of Ben contrasting leftist responses to the Christchurch Mosque Massacre on March 15 and the Sri Lanka Terror Attack on Easter Day 2019.

PLO Negotiator: In 2008, Israel Offered “Palestinians” State Larger Than West Bank and Gaza, Abbas said NO

PLO Negotiator: In 2008, Israel Offered “Palestinians” State Larger Than West Bank and Gaza, Abbas said NO

APR 18, 2019 9:00 AM BY ROBERT SPENCER16 COMMENTS

This should come as no surprise to anyone who understands the root causes of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, beyond the cant and willful ignorance of the foreign policy “experts.” I explain why it was inevitable that Abbas would reject this offer, and why any similar offers would also be rejected, in my forthcoming book The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process, which you can preorder here.

“Olmert offered Abbas more than 100% of West Bank, says PA leader,” by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, April 16, 2019:

…PLO chief negotiator Saeb Erekat who was present at the negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Abbas in 2008, recently told PA TV how generous Olmert’s offer was on all final status issues. In fact, Olmert literally accepted all of the PA’s publicly expressed demands, and even offered Abbas more than the full area of the West Bank and Gaza, and yet Abbas still rejected the offer.

Erekat explained that the area of the West Bank and Gaza Strip before they came under Israeli control in 1967was [sic] 6,235 sq. km. Olmert offered Abbas even more land than that, a total of 6,260 sq. km. At the negotiations, Erekat encouraged Abbas to accept the offer, saying that he could tell Palestinians: “I got more than the 1967 territories.” And still Abbas rejected the offer.

Regarding Israel’s capital Jerusalem, Olmert was likewise very generous. According to Erekat, Olmert offered: “What’s Arab is Arab, and what’s Jewish is Jewish.” This would have kept the Temple Mount – Judaism’s holiest site – under Palestinian rule with far-reaching implications for Jews and Judaism. The PA has said many times they would never allow Jews access to the Temple Mount since they consider Jews’ presence on any area of the Temple Mount a desecration of the nearby Al-Aqsa Mosque. Yet Olmert still offered to give this to the Palestinians for peace – and even this wasn’t enough for Abbas.

On the topic of refugees, Olmert was also forthcoming. He offered to have 150,000 refugees absorbed into the state of Israel over a period of 10 years. And still Abbas rejected it….

The following is an excerpt of the interview with Saeb Erekat:PLO Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat: “I heard [former Israeli Prime Minister] Olmert say that he offered [Abbas] 100% of the West Bank territory. This is true. I’ll testify to this. He [Olmert] presented a map [to Abbas], and said: “I want [Israel] to take 6.5% of the West Bank and I’ll give [the PA] 6.5% of the 1948 territory (i.e., land in Israel) in return.” [Olmert] said to Abbas: “The area of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip on the eve of June 4, 1967, was 6,235 sq. km. Erekat says (i.e., I, Erekat, said to Abbas): ‘There are 50 sq. km. of no man’s land in Jerusalem and Latrun.’ We’ll split them between us, so the territory will be 6,260 sq. km.” [I said to Abbas:] Olmert wants to give you 20 sq. km. more, so that you could say [to Palestinians]: “I got more than the 1967 territories.” Regarding Jerusalem, [Olmert said:] “What’s Arab is Arab, and what’s Jewish is Jewish, and we’ll keep it an open city.” Regarding the refugees, [Olmert] offered him [Abbas] 150,000 refugees… [Olmert] said: “The refugees’ right to return to the State of Palestine is your law. But regarding Israel, we will accept 150,000 refugees over 10 years. 15,000 [per year] over 10 years.” [Official PA TV, Philosophy of Endurance, Dec. 1, 2018]
