Hey Muslims, stop telling us about the “minuscule amount” of Muslims who are extremists and terrorists

Not all Americans are buying your crap anymore, especially when even your own leaders deny the Islamo-myth of the “moderate” Muslim.

BwgMKmJCYAAM574_jpglarge-vi

Dallas News Letter to Editor (From Ahmed Malik) As hundreds protested Islam outside of the Garland Convention Center this past Sunday, I was confused. Confused as to why protesters were at an event where Muslims were against terrorism. Confused as to why they would not attend the event and hear the point of view from the common Muslim who is against everything for which Boko Haram and ISIS stand.

The acts that these terrorist groups commit should reflect no one but themselves. Instead of letting the minuscule amount of Muslims represent the teachings of Islam, let the more than 1 billion “moderate” Muslims voice the true Islam. Instead of protesting at these events, please join us and listen to what we have to say.

(Hey, Ahmed, we hear you loud and clear)

After Israeli bookstore pulls Charlie Hebdo magazines from its shelves after threats from Muslims, Israeli political party will distribute them for free

charlie-hebdo-publisher-charb

Saying, “We won’t let Islamic extremists intimidate Israel and turn it into ISIS,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman instructed Yisrael Beytenu activists to buy thousands of copies of Charlie Hebdo’s “survivors’ issue” after Israel’s largest bookstore chain decided not to stock it in order to not incite Muslims.

JPost  Steimatzky decided on Saturday night to cancel a planned event to sell the magazine in Ramat Gan’s Ayalon Mall and to sell it online only instead, after MK Masud Gnaim, leader of the southern Islamic Movement’s United Arab List, warned that doing so would be “very dangerous.”

AR-150109337.jpg&MaxW=650The magazine in question is the first issue the satirical journal published after the deadly terrorist attack on its headquarters in Paris at the beginning of the month. It has a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad on the cover, holding a sign that says “Je Suis Charlie,” or “I am Charlie,” the slogan adopted by many after the attack, plus the statement, “All is forgiven.”

Charlie Hebdo was little known in Israel before the attack on its offices, but since then demand for it has spiked. Once the Yisrael Beytenu activists receive the magazines, the party plans to hold an event at which they will give them out for free.

“We won’t let Israel turn into Islamic State,” Liberman said. “We will not let extremist Islam to intimidate us and turn Israel into a country that surrenders to threats and harms freedom of expression.”

Liberman quoted Gnaim’s warning that “the country and the [Steimatzky] chain will be responsible for the results” of selling Charlie Hebdo copies, and that doing so would be crossing a redline as far as Israeli Arabs and their leadership are concerned. According to Liberman, saying such things is “another way the Israeli Arab leadership crosses redlines.”

Screen-shot-2015-01-07-at-18.52.04Later Sunday, former journalist and No. 5 on the Yisrael Beytenu list Sharon Gal, along with a dozen activists wearing T-shirts with party slogans, protested outside a Steimatzky shop in Tel Aviv.

“We won’t give in to terrorists or those who support them,” Gal stated. “There was a clear threat of terrorism, and we are standing here to say clearly that we won’t accept their threats, and anyone who supports terrorism shouldn’t be part of this election.”

main-qimg-fd3df1e9048c2fcbdb27c56ae7836489

Gal called the still-unnamed joint Arab list a coalition of “jihadists, Islamists, and communists.” Yisrael Beytenu plans to petition the Central Elections Committee to disqualify the list on the grounds that it supports terrorism.

“This paper is sold all over the world and should be sold in Israel. We aren’t afraid of those who incite against us… We’re telling the united extremist [Arab] list that no one can scare us in the Jewish state,” he added. “This issue of the magazine is a symbol of victory over terrorism.”

Even Leftist Labor-Hatnua co-leader Tzipi Livni also said Sunday that Steimatzky’s decision angered her. “I think we expect every European country to stand up to threats on freedom of expression – that’s how we need to act,” Livni told Army Radio.

GOV. BOBBY JINDAL doesn’t have a “Muslim problem,” the problem is the apologists for Islam in the leftist media in denial about the “Muslim problem”

B7_8wZmIAAAXvHC.jpg-large

In an address before the conservative Henry Jackson Society in London last week, Jindal warned of so-called Muslim “no-go zones” in the West—areas in which “non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of Sharia law as they can.” 

POLITICO Bobby Jindal, who was born a Hindu, has a Muslim problem. The Louisiana governor and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate has been repeating a “lie” that even Fox News was forced to apologize for. (But it isn’t a lie. FOX News only apologized because the Saudis are investors in FOX’s parent company, News Corp.)

Jindal has since doubled down on the claim, even after being pressed for evidence by a British journalist. Jindal asserted that no-go zones “absolutely is an issue for the UK [and] absolutely is an issue for America and other European [or] Western nations.” (See links below videos for proof)

DyHGvoF

It’s a sad thing to say for a Hindu convert to Christianity who changed his name from “Piyush” to “Bobby” and paints himself as a model immigrant, but Muslim-baiting is a key part of Jindal’s pitch to a demographic that he is aggressively courting: evangelical conservatives.

nogo-zones-7-638

In the wake of the 9/11 attacks and in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, evangelical Christians became America’s most ardent supporters of wars in Muslim lands. Eighty-seven percent of white evangelical Christians surveyed in early 2003 supported the Iraq war—compared with 78 percent of white Americans overall and just 29 percent of black Americans.

muslims-france

Evangelical support for the Iraq war was higher than that of mainline Protestant denominations. White evangelicals, more than any other religious demographic, have consistently been the most likely to support torture (the targets of which will invariably be Muslim).

1348425635-hardline-islamists-protest-outside-the-french-embassy-in-london_146728411

Evangelicals tend to see America’s challenge with jihadism not as part of a war with a radical strain within the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims, but as part of a broader war between the Christian (or Judeo-Christian) West and Islam.

B78FyFSCEAAswNi.png-large

The evangelical idea that this is a war of religions is best demonstrated by the Rev. Franklin Graham, who—in the wake of the jihadist slaughter of cartoonists and Jews in Paris earlier this month—invited Muslims to convert to Christianity during an appearance of Fox News’s Sean Hannity Show. Hannity, a Catholic with a soft side for evangelical Christianity, neither interrupted Graham nor reprimanded him. He gave him full license to engage in a display of religious bravado and chest thumping through unabashed proselytization.

Evangelical Islamophobia is distinct. It’s a whole other world when it comes to other Christian denominations, which are making the best displays of American pluralism when it comes to their engagement of Muslims.

America’s oldest Catholic higher education institution, Georgetown University, has been a leader in promoting dialogue between Christians and Muslims.

Last November, in an exemplary sign of tolerance, the Washington National Cathedral, which is affiliated with the Episcopal Church, hosted Friday prayer services for area Muslims.

This month, Duke University’s associate dean for religious life, a Christian, invited the university’s Muslim chaplain to conduct the Muslim call to prayer from the top of the school’s chapel. But they were forced to make more modest arrangements after a national backlash spurred in part by a Facebook post by Rev. Graham.

Over the past three decades, America has been home to growing interfaith dialogue and cooperation between Muslims and Catholic, mainline Protestant, and reform and leftist Jewish communities. But among evangelicals, there is a growing anti-Muslim subculture.

This isn’t simply a reaction to terrorism perpetrated by jihadists or the undeniable persecution of Christians in Muslim-majority countries. Evangelicals are being taught to suspect and disdain peaceful Muslims who live in their own country. And that culture of fear is exactly what Jindal is playing into.

There’s a cottage industry of terrorism experts and ex-Muslims who speak at evangelical churches and conferences warning about imaginary Muslim plots to take over the United States and establish “sharia law.”

TURKEY orders Facebook to block pages that insult the paedophile prophet Mohammed

safe_image.phpUsually very Islamo-friendly Facebook has been ordered by a Turkish court to block all pages insulting the Prophet Mohammed or risk having Facebook banned entirely from the country.

18

UK Daily Mail  Turkey, an increasingly radical fascistic muslim country that has been demanding to be given membership in the EU, has also banned web access to cover of Charlie Hebdo magazine in a move that is seen as yet another crackdown on offensive religious material.

A Turkish court has ordered authorities to block access to Facebook pages that ‘insult’ the Prophet Mohammed and warned the whole site will be banned if the company doesn’t comply. The country’s state-run news agency confirmed that a court in Ankara issued the order yesterday, following a request by a prosecutor. 

turkish-court-orders-block-on-facebook-pages-insulting-prophet-muhammad_3046_720_400

The decision comes just days after another court ruling banned access in Turkey to web pages featuring the controversial cover of the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo depicting the Prophet Mohammed.

It is the latest move to crack down on material seen as offending religious sensibilities in the largely Muslim nation, where the government of President Tayyip Erdogan is viewed as pursuing an Islamist-leaning agenda.

gary-clement6-e1421089752175

Facebook have yet to comment on the ruling but earlier this month Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company would not censor content published in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks. He added that the social network would ‘never let one country or group of people dictate what people can share across the world.’

However, according to statistics released by Facebook, the company has removed 1,893 ‘pieces of content’ at the request of the Turkish government.

Earlier this month, Turkey’s president began to press for new legislation which would allow ministers to temporarily ban websites, such as Facebook, and force Twitter to block an anonymous whistleblower.

The proposed law would allow ministers to restrict access to websites deemed to threaten lives, public order or rights and freedoms. The Telecommunications Directorate (TIB) would have to comply within four hours, and then apply for a court order for the ban to be extended beyond 24 hours.

Communications minister Lutfu Elvan this week defended the proposal, saying it was needed after Turkey’s top court in October annulled previous legislation giving greater powers to ban websites, and saying it would only be used in emergencies.

Last year Turkey came under international criticism for temporary bans on Facebook and Twitter as a corruption scandal unfolded.  Erdogan vowed to ‘eradicate’ Twitter after allegations of government corruption were published on the micro-blogging site.

Meanwhile Facebook was briefly banned in Pakistan along with Twitter after the sites refused to remove pictures pertaining to be the Prophet Muhammad. Facebook did eventually bow to pressure and blocked the images in Pakistan.

IRANIAN News Site reports Iran may be planning a hit on Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s two sons

Mashregh News network affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards suggested Iran target Yair and Avner Netanyahu, the sons of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in response to an alleged Israeli strike on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights last week in which 12 Hezbollah and Iranian operatives were killed, including an Iranian general. 

An image published on January 24, 2015 on the Iranian news site Mashregh News, which is affiliated with the Revolutionary Guard Corps, shows the sons of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Yair and Avner with crosshairs drawn on their faces.

Times of Israel  The article listed a number of ways Tehran could respond to the alleged assault, including a “revenge operation” involving the Netanyahu boys — who are shown in a photo on the website as if in the crosshairs of a sniper’s scope — Shaul Olmert, son of former PM Ehud Olmert and Gilad and Omri Sharon, the sons of the late prime minister Ariel Sharon.

Iran and Hezbollah have issued a series of threats since the strike earlier this week, warning of a “crushing response,” and “destructive thunderbolts.” The dead included an Iranian general and senior Hezbollah commanders, Muhammad Issa and Jihad Mughniyeh, son of slain terror mastermind Imad Mughniyeh.

There have been conflicting reports as to whether Israel knew that Iranian general Mohammed Allahdadi was in the convoy.

On Saturday, the deputy head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Lt.-Gen. Hossein Salami vowed Saturday to “open new fronts [against Israel] and change the balance of power.” “Opening up a new front across the West Bank, which is a major section of our dear Palestine, will be certainly on the agenda, and this is part of a new reality that will gradually emerge,” Salami said.

Israel viewed the strike as an act of self-defense, and that Hezbollah had forced Israel’s hand by building an offensive infrastructure on its border.  A report on Friday said the strike targeted the leaders of a substantial new Hezbollah terror hierarchy that was set to attempt kidnappings, rocket attacks and other assaults on military and civilian targets in northern Israel.

ANOTHER OBAMA “SUCCESS” – U.S. Embassy in Yemen shut down infinitely due to credible threats

imagesCiting recent attacks, the United States on Wednesday announced that it has suspended public services at its embassy in Sanaa, Yemen. A senior U.S. official said the embassy in Sana’a was closed two days ago and remains closed while “the threat is assessed.” 

B8FYfpsCMAALJ0S.png-large

CNN  “Due to recent attacks against Western interests in Yemen, we have temporarily suspended operations of our Embassy in Sana’a to the public,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement. “We continue to evaluate the security situation every day, and we will reopen the embassy to the public once it is deemed appropriate.”

The suspension of operations is due to a reemergence of a threat from several weeks ago that the United States thought it had disrupted, according to a U.S. official with specific understanding of the current situation.

Screen-shot-2014-10-18-at-4.29.01-PM

B8D9arOCUAAjKAD.jpg-large

A credible threat to the U.S. Embassy emerged around March, the official said, in the same time frame that a video appeared showing some 100 al Qaeda operatives in Yemen, including several who had broken out of jail the month before.

The United States thought that threat had been disrupted by a number of Yemeni actions, including, but not directly related to a series of U.S. drone strikes and Yemeni military operations in early April.

But in recent days, the threat stream has reemerged, the official said. It is currently assessed to be credible and somewhat specific in terms of the embassy being the target, according to the source.

012015_yemen

The United States is still attempting to corroborate the threat and determine whether there is a specific time and date, as well as any other specific locations.

A second U.S. official said the suspension of the embassy activity was based on credible information about threats to Western interests. The senior official was not sure whether the threat was embassy-specific. There have been no evacuations of the embassy.

The U.S. intelligence community has struggled in recent months to track al Qaeda in Yemen via electronic intercepts because the group has changed its communications, following disclosures last year of U.S. eavesdropping methods.

Still, the United States is using electronic tracking, satellite imagery and operatives on the ground to try to determine what may be planned.

The United Kingdom, meanwhile, advised against travel to Yemen and urged all British nationals to leave the country. “There is a high threat from terrorism throughout Yemen and specific methods of attack are evolving and increasing in sophistication,” the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said in a statement.

It continued: “Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has previously targeted western interests and there could be a threat to commercial sites, transport infrastructure, diplomatic missions and any place where westerners gather.”

Saudi Arabia unveils two badass anti-terrorism walls

When is the world going to start calling it an “Apartheid Wall?”

murs-monde-09

IJ Review  The oldest way to defend land is through a physical barrier, such as a wall. Yet some Americans dispute the efficacy of a wall when defending our southern border against infiltration from either illegal immigrants or terrorists.

One country is not buying into that notion: Saudi Arabia. Last week, a Saudi general was killed in a skirmish with ISIS at the border with Iraq, along which Saudi Arabia is constructing a 600-mile-long wall:

saudi-wall

The prospect of this wall separating Iraq from Saudi Arabia is not a welcome one for ISIS, whose goals include capturing Saudi Arabia – home to the Holy Mosques of Mecca and Medina.

Construction began on the wall last September and, according to Jane’s, “…consists of 78 monitoring towers, eight command centers, 10 mobile surveillance vehicles, 32 rapid-response centers, and three rapid intervention squads, all linked by a fiber-optic communications network.”

The Kingdom is also creating a 1,000 mile wall along its border with Yemen to the south.

PAKISTAN Muslim leader threatens cartoons mocking paedophile prophet Mohammed could lead to WWIII

Demands that the UN impose laws that make blasphemy against Islam an international crime.

Sirajul-Haq

Tribune (via TROP) Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq has said the west’s ‘extremist standpoint’ on blasphemous caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) may lead to a third world war. “The path that the West has chosen will take the world to a third world war,” Siraj said on Friday.

He was addressing thousands of people at a rally, organised to protest against the insulting caricatures published in Western publications, particularly French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

pakistan-charlie-hebdo-e1421532463782

The JI chief demanded that the United Nations make laws to discourage blasphemy of all religious personalities. He said France must apologise for hurting sentiments of billions of Muslims across the world.

Addressing the rally, Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique said the life of a Muslim is useless if he cannot protect the honour and dignity of his Prophet (pbuh). Earlier, the rally marched from Faizabad Flyover through Islamabad Highway to the Blue Area of the capital.

Meanwhile, activists of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) also held a protest in Islamabad and assembled outside Lal Masjid after Friday prayers.

ASWJ head Maulana Muhammad Ludhianvi condemned the caricatures and urged the Muslim world to play a role in making international laws to discourage blasphemy. The ASWJ leaders also demanded expulsion of the French ambassador.

Hundreds of people also came together in various parts of Faisalabad to stage a protest demonstration against the French magazine.

The protests were organised by various religious organisations, including Tehreek-e-Ahle Sunnat and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam.  The protesters carried placards inscribed with slogans against the publication. They said they would not hesitate to sacrifice their lives to protect the honour, prestige and esteem of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

Tehreek-e-Ahle Sunnat chairman Qazi Muhammad Faiz Rasool Rizvi said Western countries had conspired to incense Muslims by publishing the caricatures in an effort to alter the ideology of Islam. He said love for the Prophet (pbuh) was a basic tenet of Islam.

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Faisalabad president Abdus Shakoor Rizvi condemned the publication of the offensive caricatures. He said anti-Islam elements should stop hatching such conspiracies or be ready to face consequences.

Business and trade activities in the provincial capital of Balochistan came to a standstill due to a shutter-down strike called by different religious and political parties to protest against the caricatures.

The strike was jointly called by Jamaatud Dawa, Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam-Nazaryati, Jamaat-e-Islami, ASWJ, Mutheda Mahaz Balochistan and Khilji Quomi Ethad. The Anjuman-e-Tajeran, traders’ union Balochistan, also backed the strike call.

The religious parties took out separate procession and held protest demonstrations near the Quetta Press Club.  The protestors demanded that Pakistan snap diplomatic relations with France and put pressure on international community to punish all who played with the sentiments of Muslim world.

Thousands of people took to streets on Friday in several districts of Hyderabad and Mirpurkhas divisions to protest against the French magazine.

HEY, MUSLIMS! Pope Francis just insulted your prophet Mohammed

Following the recent Charlie Hebdo Massacre in Paris, Pope Francis condemned Mohammed. According to Pope Francis, “it is wrong and immoral to insult another person’s religion.” Yet history shows that Mohammedans regularly insulted other religions.

Hence, the Pope is saying Mohammed and his sycophants were immoral!

AUSTRALIA: Anti-free speech extremist Muslims protest against Charlie Hebdo insults to Islam

Hundreds of angry Muslims gathered in Lakemba, a suburb of Sydney, to protest the ‘negative coverage’ of Islam and the paedophile prophet Mohammed in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks and shootings by Muslims in a Kosher supermarket in Paris.

1374114845584-vi

7News  (h/t Marina) Among the 800-strong crowd in the Muslim enclave of Lakemba, placards were held up with the slogan: “Je Suis Muslim” or “I am Muslim”, evoking the same sentiment that became a touchstone for many in the wake of attacks in Paris.

1422038918247

Organizers of the Our Prophet, Our Honour rally said it was intended to be “a peaceful and respectful event” to counter negative coverage of Islam and the lampooning of the Prophet by French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

Speaking at the rally, outside the Lakemba train station, local Muslim leader Sufyan Badar told the crowd it was also in response to the waves of protests in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack.

311346-dcd1e370-a2f1-11e4-b988-694a6302ad1f

Mr Badar said the protests in the name of free speech had nothing to do with freedom. “We also gather to place the politics of the events in France in the correct context,” he said.

“Freedom is the smokescreen with which Western politicians and media conceal the underlying issues.

1422038613131

“In reality free speech is one of the many political tools that are used to maintain dominance over the Muslims.”

Earlier, Prime Minister Tony Abbott warned against the rally being used to incite terrorism, saying he hoped few people would attend.

Hamzah Qureshi, a spokesman for the controversial group Hizb ut-Tahrir, which helped organise the event, questioned the prime minister’s comments and the suggestion the event could incite violence.

“No one should be asked to apologise for or distance themselves from something they are not responsible for,” Mr Qureshi said.

“I would however mention that it’s interesting that the question of whether a Muslim event will be peaceful or violent consistently seems to come up.”

A spokesman for terror-linked Islamic Hizb ut-Tahrir, which helped organize the event, questioned the Prime Minister’s comments and his suggestion the gathering could be used to incite violence.

TENNESSEE: The Op Ed by a Vanderbilt University professor that is causing Muslim students and their leftist allies to lose their minds

0What would it take to make us admit we were wrong about Islam? What horrendous attack would finally convince us that Islam is not like other religions in the United States, that it poses an absolute danger to us and our children unless it is monitored better than it has been under the Obama administration?

Not surprisingly, Prof. Swain is no fan of Obama

Not surprisingly, Dr. Swain is no fan of Barack Obama

Charlie Hebdo attacks prove critics were right about Islam.

By Carol M Swain

Tennessean  Over the past few years, we have had a man in Middle Tennessee who, like the founders of our nation, has risked his life, fortune and reputation to sound an alarm. After many years of his fighting alone in the wilderness, Andrew Miller Jr. and his Tennessee Freedom Coalition continue to be vindicated by current world events.

Dismissed by some as a kook, a hater and a bitter man, Miller, in my eye, has revealed himself to be a deeply committed man who sounded an alarm about Islam long before comedian Bill Maher and others were finally willing to admit that Islam is positively dangerous to our society.

Vanderbilt Students protesting Dr. Swain's views on Islam

Vanderbilt Students protesting Dr. Swain’s views on Islam

More and more members of the PC crowd now acknowledge that Islam has absolutely nothing in common with Christianity, nor is it a worthy part of the brotherhood of man I long felt was characteristic of the Abrahamic religions. A younger, more naive version of myself once believed in a world where the people of the Book could and would get along because they all claimed Abraham as their father. No more!

I met Miller a few years ago and heard his story of how he worked on Wall Street and survived the deaths of more than 200 friends in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Those attacks transformed him into a crusader who has risked his life and reputation to warn us about the dangers of radical Islam. He and the coalition have paid a price by being labeled as haters for engaging in activities designed to educate and awaken a sleeping public.

IMG_8675_2-vi

It is fascinating today to watch how world events have vindicated Miller in his warnings about the dangers of radical Islam. It becomes clearer every day that Islam is not just another religion to be accorded the respect given to Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Baha’i and other world religions. The Jan. 7 terrorist attack resulting in 12 deaths at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine that committed the apparently unpardonable sin of lampooning the Prophet Muhammad, once again illustrates that Islam is a dangerous set of beliefs totally incompatible with Western beliefs concerning freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of association.

As Miller has so often stated, Islam has a problem with the West. Islam will never understand the freedoms that we live and die to preserve. If America is to be safe, it must remove the foxes from the henhouses and institute serious monitoring of Islamic organizations.

Civic education and other indicators of assimilation should be a prerequisite for remaining and advancing in this nation. We must be willing to recognize the dangers of the burka (head-to-toe garb worn by women in some Islamic sects), which allows individuals to completely conceal their identities.

If Muslims are to thrive in America, and if we are to be safe, then we must have ground rules that protect the people from those who disdain the freedoms that most of the world covets.
