Great reason to see the movie ‘Dracula Untold’ – Muslims think it is ‘Islamophobic’

DRACULA UNTOLD is the story you definitely haven’t heard before. It tells the tale of Vlad Țepeș, the impaler, a warrior and leader who would do anything to save his family. And when all other options are exhausted, he goes looking for help in places dark and deep, and comes out changed forever.

New Republic  Says Muslim , why Turks? And why now, when all eyes are on Turkey, and the country teeters unwillingly on the frontline of impending war? In the current climate of global political tension and escalating Islamophobia, what political statement does Dracula Untold make in pitting our vampire hero against the armies of Mehmet II?

The film’s generous use of the word “Turk” was interesting. To call an Ottoman a Turk is like calling a Roman an Italian. True, the Ottoman sultans were of Turkic origin. But the empire was much too big, much too ethnically diverse to be called Turkish. In the Age of Enlightenment, “Turk,” “Moor,” and “Mohammedan” were interchangeable terms which basically meant Muslim. 

Dracula-Untold-3

The wide use of “Turk” then, was an attempt to tribalize the Islamic faith and associate it with foreign, potentially threatening powers, which were the common enemy.

Fast forward to the 21st century. In Dracula Untold, Mehmet II seals his demands on Vlad with a bloody thumb-print, and the scene’s final shot is of the Sultan’s thumb on an imperial edict, alongside a stamp bearing the name of God in Arabic script. The Sultan’s cruelty then is the will of the Muslim god, who is out to get your children. Today, vilification of Islam has reached such heights, that even when the Sultan is cast opposite history’s bloodiest-psycho-tyrant, it’s Dracula who emerges as the tragic hero.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION BOSTON appoints Muslim police captain who brings to the force a ‘Muslim agenda’

As Boston Police Captain Haseeb Hosein assumes leadership in Mattapan as the department’s first Muslim captain, he plans to have his officers walking not only the streets, but school hallways. “I want my guys to go into the schools and spend 30 minutes and read” with a child, said Hosein, 52.

(Yeah, who cares about rooting out the next Muslim terrorist attack like the Boston bombers when you can spend your time reading (Islamic propaganda) to little Christian children?)

Haseeb Hosein

Boston Globe  Hosein’s promotion makes him the highest-ranking Muslim in the department, according to a police spokesman, and one of three minority captains .

“The promotion to captain of Haseeb Hosein goes directly to my commitment of making the police department more reflective of the community we serve,” Police Commissioner William Evans said in a statement. “It is both historic and an honor for me to promote the first black Muslim captain to my command staff.”

Hosein served a four-month suspension after a complaint in 2007 that he and several other officers repeatedly under-reported hours while performing paid details, according to police records. Boston Police spokesman Sergeant Michael McCarthy said the department has moved past the incident. “It doesn’t make him any less qualified or deserving of a promotion.” (AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IN ACTION,  folks)

As the department’s first Muslim captain, he said, he feels he can inspire young Muslims to join the force and serve as an ambassador for a faith that is often viewed negatively. “I can be a voice to  let people know that the 1.6 billion Muslims [in the world] are just like them,” Hosein said. “I hope to be that voice that speaks out loud.”  (Just what Boston needs, Muslim infiltrators in the police department)

Lt. Col. Allen West On Ottawa Attack: “Shut down mosques of perpetrators and deport the Imams”

Now, if only we could get him to run for President!

20140926post-allenwest

Fox News contributor Allen West believes the Western world should respond to the Ottawa MUSLIM terrorist attack by shutting down “the mosques and Islamic Centers where these individuals are attending” and deporting the imams. That place of so-called worship, which is just proselytizing, you know, hate and violence, they have to be shut down. West added that closing these places “of so-called worship” is “the only way we send a message into the Muslim communities” that we’re “not going to tolerate these snake pits of sedition.”

West was speaking on the October 23 edition of BlogTalkRadio’s REELTalk. Here’s his reaction to the Ottawa attack:

After 31 soldiers were killed in bomb attacks, al-Sisi says “Muslim jihadists threaten Egypt’s very existence”

Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi says the country is facing a threat to its existence from jihadists after the military suffered the biggest loss of life in decades in attacks in Sinai. At least 31 soldiers were killed in two attacks on Friday, the deadliest a bomb blast near the town of El-Arish.

fc71d746-04d8-47af-b4ad-a3f65ed24dbb

BBC  (h/t Colin W) A three-month state of emergency has been declared in parts of the Sinai Peninsula and Egypt’s Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip was closed. There will be three days of mourning.  In a live TV address, Mr Sisi said a huge plot was being waged against Egypt “by external forces”. 

“This is meant to break up Egypt and the Egyptians …. Egypt is fighting a war of existence.” No group has said it carried out the attacks, which came as the army continued an offensive against jihadists in northern Sinai.

Militants have stepped up attacks since Islamist President Mohammed Morsi was ousted by the army last year amid massive opposition protests. In the deadliest attack, 28 soldiers were killed and a similar number injured in a suicide bomb blast at a checkpoint near El-Arish, the main town in the north of the restive peninsula.  Three more soldiers died in a separate shooting at a checkpoint in the town itself. 

“The army and the police will take all necessary measures to tackle the dangers of terrorism and its financing, to preserve the security of the region… and protect the lives of citizens,” the statement said. Communications have been cut, and helicopters and special forces are now searching for militant hideouts, she adds.  In their continuing offensive in northern Sinai, security forces have recently killed and captured dozens of suspected members of jihadist groups.

ITALIAN WOMAN demands an end to the Muslim invasion of Italy

She says Muslims are a cancer to civilization, ALL civilizations. Muslims have been allowed to enter Italy without our permission. There are 1400 hidden mosques that are breeding grounds for terrorists who fight in Syria with ISIS, who oppress women. Send them back where they came from.

CANADA: Once again, the only thing Muslims are concerned about after a Muslim terrorist attack is a ‘backlash’

The RCMP is investigating threats sent to the B.C. Muslim Association in the wake of two separate attacks on Canadians soldiers this week. Association spokesman Aasim Rashid said the organization has received multiple messages via email that threatened the general Muslim population in the province.

CTV News  “The idea was to create this fear that you’re not safe from us, from whoever these people are,” Rashid told reporters, Friday. “Whenever that happens we report it to authorities and take their advice on how to act.”

Hours earlier, Mounties in Alberta confirmed they are probing a disturbing case of vandalism at a mosque in Cold Lake, where windows were smashed and the words “Go home” were spray-painted on walls overnight. (“Go Home” is disturbing but killing Canadian soldiers and threatening to behead the Prime Minister is not?)

Community members quickly banded together in support of the mosque, helping to remove the graffiti and covering a broken window with a board reading “Love your neighbor.” (But only if your neighbor is a Muslim)

News of the threats and vandalism followed two days after Michael Zehaf Bibeau shot and killed a soldier standing honour guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, and four days after a separate attack that killed one soldier and left another wounded in Quebec.

The B.C. Muslim Association also reiterated its condemnation of the attacks Friday, and accused the assailants of harming the Islamic faith. (No different than Muslims do everyday) “These are attacks of criminal violence and show utter disregard for human life and the laws of the world, as well as its religions,” Rashid said.

“Perpetrators must carry the burden of tarnishing the image of Islam (Bwahahahaha), creating misunderstandings and possibly animosity for Islam and Muslims, pushing non-Mulims away from the religion, and making it difficult for Muslims to practice.”(That’s the idea)  The denouncements echoed those of other Muslim groups across Canada this week.

What about the threats from Muslim to Canadians?

What about the threats from Muslim to Canadians?

Mounties have been working with the B.C. Muslim community to prevent radicalization through an outreach program since 2005, but Rashid said they hope to step up efforts with a new program. One element will involve combating the propaganda spread by terror groups like ISIS, using the same social media sites extremists have utilized to recruit impressionable youths.

“This is a preventative program to educate Muslims and non-Muslims about the actual teachings of Islam as opposed to the radical version portrayed by groups like ISIS,” rashid said. (There is only one version of Islam, ask any Muslim) “The program will be a broad program aiming not only to educate, but also to create awareness, to create an environment of non-acceptance to such kinds of criminal violence.”

Officials have confirmed Zehaf Bibeau, who has a record of drug addiction and petty crimes in both B.C. and Quebec, spent part of 2011 worshipping at a Burnaby mosque also attended by accused terrorist Hasib Yusufzai, believed to have flown to Syria to join ISIS.

Rashid said Yusufzai prayed at the mosque two or three years ago, but was sent away for sharing alarmingly radical views (As opposed to the normally radical views of Islam?). Members who are being radicalized generally do so in solitude, seeking out information that reinforces their beliefs on the Internet, he added. “It’s online. It’s there for whoever chooses to access it and whoever is susceptible to it,” he said. (It’s also in the mosques)

“Based on what I’ve been reading in the news, there are online forums, there are social media platforms being used, there are propaganda videos being used through YouTube and whatnot and anyone who is anywhere in the world has access to this.” It’s incredibly rare for B.C. Muslims to show signs of radicalization, he added. (HAH!)

RCMP Asst. Commissioner Wayne Rideout said there are no current threats identified in B.C.

CANADA: Anti-Muslim hatred heats up against three Muslims running in Oct. 27th municipal elections in Toronto

safe_image.php

Three Muslims vying for positions in Monday’s municipal election have reported ‘racist’ (What ‘race’ is Islam?) attacks this week. What do they expect, especially after two savage Muslim terrorist attacks in Canada that killed 2 soldiers in just one week? 

The Star  For three Muslim candidates, Toronto’s municipal election took a very nasty turn this week.  On Thursday night, a Purolator truck driver allegedly hurled garbage and shouted “terrorist” at a team of volunteers planting signs for Ward 2 council candidate Munira Abukar.

On Friday, a Purolator spokesperson issued a prepared statement that said the company is “deeply troubled about this report” and is “taking this matter seriously.” The spokesperson said Purolator President and CEO Patrick Nangle contacted Abukar on Friday morning “to apologize and express concern.”

This was not the first time Abukar has faced xenophobia on the campaign trail. Earlier this month, the Star reported that a campaign sign featuring Abukar wearing a hijab was defaced with the words “Bitch” and “Go Back Home.”

“You can’t let a few election trolls ruin your city and ruin your home,” Abukar says. “There’s no room for hate of any kind in Canada”

TDSB Ward 10 trustee candidate Ausma Malik appears to be the target of an anonymous co-ordinated attack. In addition to being heckled at a candidates’ debate, her campaign office says that thousands of flyers were distributed throughout the ward this week which, among other things, accuse Malik of being a supporter of the Toronto 18 terrorist cell and a proponent of Sharia law. One flyer even has a photo of Malik with a yellow and green Hezbollah flag.

“The accusations are incredibly mean-spirited and they’re lies,” Malik says. “I’m doing this because I believe in public education, I believe in our community, and I believe that an inclusive, equitable and progressive public education system is possible — and especially in light of this, absolutely necessary.”

malik-supports-terrorists

In Ward 18, council candidate Mohammad Uddin claims he has been the target of a steady stream of Islamophobic insults. On Thursday, he tweeted a photo of one of his campaign signs defaced with the words “Fuck Islam.” Uddin claims racist graffiti has been discovered outside his campaign office as recently as Friday, and earlier this month, he says his car windows were smashed and his campaign signs were stolen as the vehicle sat in his driveway.

“Canada is a country of peace, love and brotherhood,” Uddin says. “In 20 years, I’ve never had problems like this.”

Abukar, Malik and Uddin have reported these incidents to police. On social media, Twitter users have shown their support with the hashtags “#IStandWithAusma” and “#IStandWithMunira.”

ALABAMA group called ‘Americans United for Separation of Church & State’ is opposed to an anti-sharia bill

logo-new

Calling the bill an “Atrocious Amendment,” Americans United for Separation of Church & State’ says, “We object to anti-Sharia bills because they’re unnecessary, their provisions are overly broad, and they unfairly target the nation’s Muslim communities. And that violates the First Amendment.”

AU  Next month, Alabama voters will have an opportunity to weigh in on Amendment One, which would add a provision to the state constitution that ostensibly attempts to ban Islamic, or Sharia, law. It’s hardly the first bill of its kind. Last year, state legislatures in Florida, Missouri, North Carolina and Oklahoma debated similar measures; Missouri’s bill never made it past the governor’s desk. In the other states, the bills were limited to family law.

ALAC_logo1

dougherty.ok.sharia.law.ban.cnn.640x360

Alabama’s bill goes a bit further. If enacted, it would require the state’s courts to avoid enforcing or applying rulings from other courts if those rulings are based on foreign law. That could affect contractual obligations from foreign courts (a more than occasional occurrence in international business dealings).

And the bill’s reasoning appears sound. “The public policy of this state is to protect its citizens from the application of foreign laws when the application of a foreign law will result in the violation of a right guaranteed by the Alabama Constitution or of the United States Constitution, including, but not limited to, due process, freedom of religion, speech, assembly, or press, or any right of privacy or marriage,” it asserts.

shariah4America-620x187

The amendment’s text never explicitly references Sharia, but as the Greene County Democrat reports, it’s merely the latest incarnation of anti-Sharia legislation in the state. It’s also the brainchild of State Sen. Gerald Allen (R-Tuscaloosa), who sponsored the original, failed version of the bill in 2011. Last month, Allen received a national security award from ACT! for America, an anti-Islam group founded by Brigitte Gabriel.

beribart-news

At Americans United, we are often asked why we don’t support these bills. The answer is always the same: Because there isn’t a real threat that our courts or legislatures are implementing Sharia law. We have yet to receive a report about a Muslim community or Muslim elected official attempting to legislate based on Sharia principles. If we did, we’d take action. We do, however, receive many reports about fundamentalist Christians doing exactly that.

Obviously, they haven’t seen these:

EXCELLENT! Israeli troops kill Arab American teenage jihadi in Judea/Samaria who was about to hurl a bomb at Israeli motorists

Israeli troops on Friday shot dead a Ramallah-born teenager, 17, with U.S. citizenship, who the army said was about to hurl a petrol bomb at Israeli motorists near the  city of Ramallah. “The forces fired immediately to neutralize the danger… and confirmed a hit,” said an IDF spokeswoman.

Orwa Abd al-Wahhab Hammad, 17, an American teen from New Orleans has been shot dead in clashes in the  village of Silwad near Ramallah.

Orwa Abd al-Wahhab Hammad, 17, an Arab American teen from New Orleans has been shot dead in clashes in the village of Silwad near Ramallah.

AFP  An army spokeswoman said troops posted at the village of Silwad to protect a major road widely used by Jewish residents in the area spotted a person about to hurl a petrol bomb. Palestinian officials named the youth as Orwa Hammad, 17, saying he was shot during a stone-throwing protest against troops, a regular occurrence at Silwad, near Ofra settlement.

The US consulate in Jerusalem said the young jihadi held US citizenship, while locals in Silwad said Hammad’s father lives in the United States. “We can confirm now that the teenager who was killed was an American citizen,” consulate spokesman Leslie Ordeman told AFP, without commenting further. Orwa Abd al-Wahhab Hammad was born in Ramallah and moved with his family to New Orleans, according to his brother Mohammad. 

On Friday, police in Jerusalem clashed with Palestinians, firing tear gas to disperse stone-throwing protesters. They were deployed ahead of weekly Muslim prayers as the army restricted access to a flashpoint mosque, after a deadly Palestinian attack sent tensions soaring.

Hamas-linked CAIR demands Michigan Governor Rick Snyder condemn Republican Committeeman Dave Agema’s “camel jockey” remark

UnknownAgema made this appropriate remark in reference to recent news that Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists were using ex-Iraqi Air Force pilots to train them in how to fly Russian MIG fighter jets which ISIS had stolen from Syria. Agema’s benign remark on Facebook was:

“I wouldn’t be too concerned over this. American or Israeli fighter pilots could take all of these out in a single day. We had a saying in the Air Force that camel jockeys don’t make good fighter pilots and the Israelis proved this to be accurate.”

10006363_10152489706182695_8921134389189639261_n

CAIR The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) today called on Michigan Governor Rick Snyder to condemn the most recent racist remark by a state GOP official on social media. Michigan Republic National Committee Dave Agema recently referred to Arabs as “camel jockeys on his Facebook page.

Oman-3421-Large

Earlier this year, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and state GOP Chairman Bobby Schostak both condemned Agema for his bigoted comments. But Governor Snyder has yet to repudiate Agema by name for his efforts to marginalize Arabs, Muslims and immigrants.

original

“We call on Governor Snyder to condemn Agema’s latest racist remarks,” said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid. “As the symbolic leader of the GOP in the state, the governor’s failure to condemn Mr. Agema by name for his racist (what ‘race’ is Islam?) comments gives many in the Muslim and Arab community the impression that he silently approves the comments.” (Hopefully he does)

Walid also mentioned that a series of racist comments coming from members of the GOP nationwide may influence how American Muslims vote in the upcoming midterm election. (Who cares?)

NEW MEXICO: Molotov cocktail thrown at Albuquerque mosque caused virtually no damage but CAIR is demanding a hate crime investigation

Mosque-1000x750

Someone (probably fed up with the rising tide of beheadings and terror attacks by Muslims in the West) threw what appears to be a Molotov cocktail explosive device at a southeast Albuquerque Mosque Friday morning, according to Albuquerque police. 

CAIR  Muslim Brotherhood front group, Hamas-linked The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is calling on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate a Molotov cocktail attack on an Albuquerque, N.M., mosque as a hate crime.

Albuquerque police say the incendiary device was thrown Friday morning at a window of the Islamic Center of New Mexico but did not enter the building. The device ignited and caused minimal damage to the exterior of the mosque. No injuries were reported.
