Black graffiti of the Star of David was found on the front door of a mosque in Live Oak and Santa Cruz County sheriff’s deputies are investigating it as a hate crime. Spray paint of the star, which is a Jewish symbol, and above it the number “26” were written on a white front door of the Islamic Center of Santa Cruz.
Any BNI readers know what the ’26’ represents?
Santa Cruz Sentinel“Night vision” surveillance images show what appears to be a woman in a hooded sweatshirt spraying paint. The letters “SC” appeared on the left torso of her sweatshirt (Gee, that must stand for Santa Cruz). Deputies said they were unsure of her height, weight and other features. “She had something covering the bottom half of her face.” (I bet she did – a niqab?)
Zahra Billoo, the CAIR’s executive director, said she said she had no idea what the number signifies, but speculated that the Star of David might be a reference to the ongoing violence in Israel and Gaza. Billoo said she was “surprised” and “horrified” by the act.
“So often, Islamophobia is something that many Muslims think of as happening in other places,” Billoo said. “It’s not as common to have these things happen in California and especially not in the Bay Area.” (That’s for sure, California is a breeding ground for leftist apologists for Islam)
Executive Director of CAIR’s chapter in San Francisco, Zahra Billoo, a Pakistani Muslim, describes herself as an “anarchist Muslim,” meaning she wants to replace Western man-made laws with sharia law
With the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, often known as ISIS, Billoo said she has noticed an increase in complaints of derogatory comments targeting individual Muslims in the area.
You know CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), that Washington DC-based, Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood front group just listed as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.
CAIR called on state and national Republican Party leaders to repudiate comments by Big Stone County GOP Chair Jack Whitley, who called Muslims “parasites.” In a Facebook status posted on his page on November 19, Whitley wrote:
“I am opposed to waterboarding muslim terrorists, but probably not why you think. I am opposed to waterboarding muslim terrorists because it is a waste of resources. They are muslims, they are terrorist, we know where they are from, we know where their buddies are, we know where their mosques are, we know millions of these parasites travel to Mecca every year …FRAG ‘EM! Simplicity. I love when it all comes together!”
Sadly, the Republican party in Minnesota claims to be outraged over Whitley’s remarks. Pussies.
Knives, Tasers and Fireworks were found in a shipment from China, apparently intended for Palestinian rioters clashing with Israeli security forces.
Gee, whatever would make Israel think there was something fishy about a huge shipment of Christmas ornaments being shipped to Muslim recipients in Jerusalem? DUH.
J POST(h/t Susan K) A massive amount of fireworks, knives and Tasers police believe were meant in part to be used by rioters clashing with police were seized last week by Jerusalem District detectives and officers from the Tax Authority and the Ashdod Port Customs, police announced on Thursday.
Police said the seizure came after Jerusalem detectives ran an undercover investigation along with the tax and customs officials, during which they were able to track and seize two shipping containers which came to Ashdod by way of China. The fireworks were hidden among Christmas decorations inside the containers, which were intended for Arab residents of the largely Christian east Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina.
Last Tuesday, three of the suspects arrived at the Ashdod Port and claimed the containers, and then drove with them on trailers to a storehouse in Afula, where they planned to unload the merchandise. They were then arrested at the spot before unloading the containers, as was the owner of the storehouse.
Inside the containers police said they found 18,000 fireworks of the restricted 20mm variety, as well as 5,200 commando knives, 4,300 flashlights that can be modified into improvised Tasers, 5,500 Tasers, and 1,000 swords.
Fireworks have become a highly popular tool of rioters facing off with police and soldiers during riots in the Arab sector, in particular in East Jerusalem. The firecrackers, including large roman candles, are pointed horizontally towards police and soldiers and fired like ammunition. Some of the larger gauge fireworks can penetrate police protective gear at close range, including their plastic shields. All can cause severe burns and if some of the larger ones hit on the right spot, such as the neck, they can potentially be fatal.
But that’s not the shocking part. What’s shocking is that the British court sentenced this Somali Muslim savage to just 2-½ years in prison! And this wasn’t his first assault charge.
UK Mirror(h/t Jeanne) Mohammed Abdi had a minor role in the 2013 Tom Hanks movie Captain Phillips – an action film the sentencing judge said he had seen ‘more than once’. But away from the cameras Abdi was part of a hotheaded mob who ambushed rivals as they were coming out of takeaways, the Manchester Evening News reported.
In the first attack, the victim was on his way out of Kansas Fried Chicken at Wilmslow Road, Rusholme, when his attackers, led by Abdi, pulled up in a Nissan Micra and set upon him. The man was kicked into unconsciousness and suffered a fractured cheekbone, before being bundled into a car, driven off, and released after an hour.
Prosecutor Katy Jones said Abdi had previously been involved in a fraud case with the victim, and called him a ‘grass’ before the attack, at 6am, March 2, 2013. The victim, who suffered a brain haemorrhage afterwards, told police he had been ‘paraded’ through the streets while unconscious.
At 10am on August 17 this year, Abdi also took part in a gang assault on a man suspected of insulting his friend in the McFresh bakery at Claremont Road, Moss Side. The victim was cut to the arm after Abdi attacked him with a bottle in front of horrified staff and customers.
David Temkin, defending, said there was ‘another side’ to Abdi, who had a well-paid sales job and had enjoyed the ‘privileged experience’ of nine weeks filming in Morocco after being cast as in Captain Phillips, which tells the story of an oil tanker boarded by pirates.
Judge Martin Rudland, sentencing, said: “Was he in the capsule at the end when the Navy Seals were trying to get in? When I watched this film I thought where have they got these fantastic Somali actors from? They are extremely convincing.” Jailing Abdi, 29, of Princess Road, Moss Side, for two-and-half yearsafter he admitted two GBH charges,the judge said it was a ‘great shame’ to see him in the dock for the ‘deplorable’ attacks after his big screen achievement.
Describing the first incident, Judge Rudland said: “It’s a whisker between behaviour of this sort and death, but you were completely unmindful of that. “Even when you got him unconscious on the pavement, lying there like a rag doll, you go about that appalling display of dragging, moving and shifting the dead weight of his body to get him into a motorcar.”
Abdi’s accomplices in that attack, Mohammed Omar Ali, 33, of Stockport Road, Longsight, and Hamid Hassan, 27, of Acomb Street, Hulme, were jailed for two years after admitting GBH. His accomplices in the second attack, Ismail Warsama, 30, of Hammersmith, London, and Abdi Arteh, of Princess Road, Moss Side, got 12-month suspended sentences after admitting affray.
Warsama has 180 hours unpaid work and a programme requirement, while Arteh has 150 unpaid work, a programme requirement and 12-months supervision.
The destruction of terrorists’ homes sends a sharp, clear message to those who wish to harm Israeli civilians and security forces, that terrorism and causing harm to innocents carries with it a heavy price,” the Israel Defense Forces said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to raze more homes of families of East Jerusalem Muslim terrorists.
Times of Israel At the same time the U.S. State Department slams Israel’s new construction of homes in the Jewish capital of Jerusalem. We would reiterate our clear and consistent opposition to construction activity in East Jerusalem. During this sensitive time in Jerusalem, we would see such activity as inconsistent with the goal of lowering tensions and seeking a path towards peace,” said State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke at a press briefing Wednesday.
He added that the US administration remains in close touch with the Israeli government on these and other issues, including the deadly attack at a Jerusalem synagogue Tuesday morning.
Rathke also said that the renewal of the controversial Israeli policy to demolish the homes of terrorists as a punitive measure “are counterproductive in an already tense situation.” “This is a practice I would remind that the Israeli government itself discontinued in the past, recognizing its effects,” he said.
Israeli security forcesrazed the home of Abdelrahman al-Shaludi, a 21-year-old Palestinian from East Jerusalem from Silwan who rammed his car into Israeli pedestrians in a murderous terror attack last month, which killed a baby and a woman before police shot and fatally wounded him.
Last month, a powerful explosion ripped out the walls of the home of Abdelrahman al-Shaludi, a 21-year-old Palestinian from East Jerusalem who rammed his car into Israeli pedestrians in a murderous terror attack
Three other families of terrorists in East Jerusalem have now been formally notified that their homes are slated for demolition. One is the home of Mohammed Jaabis, 23, from Jabel Mukaber, who rammed an earthmover into a bus on August 4, killing an Israeli and wounding five. He was shot dead by police at the scene.
Another is that of Mu’taz Hijazi, 32, from Abu Tor who on October 29 tried to gun down a far-right Jewish activist, critically wounding him. Hijazi was shot dead the following morning during a police raid.
The third is the home of Ibrahim al-Akary, 38, from the Shuafat refugee camp, who on November 5 rammed his car into pedestrians, killing a teenager and a policeman and wounding nine, before also being shot dead at the scene.
Israel has likewise pledged to raze the homes of Uday and Ghassan Abu Jamal, from Jabel Mukaber, who on Tuesday were shot dead after attacking a synagogue with meat cleavers and a gun, killing four rabbis at prayer as well as a Druze policeman.
Earlier Wednesday, Jerusalem municipal spokesperson Brachie Sprung said that of the 78 homes in East Jerusalem set to be built, 50 apartments are to be built in the Ramot neighborhood and another 28 in Har Homa. She said the same committee last week ALSO approved 178 homes for Arab residents in neighborhoods of the city including Ras al-Amud, Jabel Mukaber, Wadi Joz and Beit Hanina.
On the other hand, the Obama Regime has said nothing about Egypt’s eviction of residents and demolition of hundreds of mostly Palestinian civilian homes in the Gaza border town Rafah, in order to create a buffer zone and moat, following Hamas terror attacks that killed many Egyptian soldiers in Sinai, as well as the discovery of hundreds of Hamas smuggling terror tunnels from Rafah into Sinai. Armed Egyptian soldiers have been rounding up residents of Rafah and blowing up their homes – with minimalmedia coverage or condemnation.
Egypt’s massive demolition of homes in Rafah
Meanwhile the world media and international community remained silent, reserving criticism and condemnation only for Israel.
Palestinian leaders reacted to Tuesday’s bloody attack by two Muslim terrorist on a synagogue in West Jerusalem by characterizing the synagogue as “a command center” and the murdered victims as “terrorists.” (It’s time to bomb the al-Aqsa mosque to smithereens and replace it with a temple)
CNS NewsHamas described the attack as “a quality development in the confrontation with the Israeli occupation.” Hamas spokesman Sheikh Ismail Aal Radhwan called the four murdered rabbis “the greatest terrorists in that racist state,” concluding that “these are no civilians. They are terrorists.” “Blood will be met with blood, killing will be met with killing, and the defiling of the holy places will be met by resistance, and by the heads of the Zionist rabbis, who are the greatest terrorists in that racist state,” Radhwan told Al Quds TV in Lebanon.
“That synagogue is a kind of command center for the planning of acts of aggression against our people and our holy places. This is no prayer synagogue. Otherwise, how can we account for the presence of American and British citizens there?” asked Abu Ahmand Fouad, deputy secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
Reportedly, upwards of 16,000 non-Muslim girls have been victims of Muslim rape gangs in Britain. Until recently, law enforcement and politicians have done nothing about it for fear of being called “racist.”
Now that the story has been widely covered in the international media, it is getting some long overdue attention and a few prosecutions but not anywhere near enough based on the widespread scale of the abuse. However, this isn’t only a British problem. Wherever there are Muslim immigrants, there is a rampant rape problem.
Before a packed meeting, the Kennesaw City Council tabled a vote on a proposal that would allow an Islamic worship center to open in the middle of a shopping center, Kennesaw Commons. The plan drew sharp debate over both zoning and Islam itself.
11Alive The group’s application says they would hold daily prayers five times a day — involving about ten people each time — as well as a larger and longer worship service each Friday afternoon involving 60 to 80 people.
Opponents argued that a place of worship, no matter the religion, has no place in a retail strip mall. Some expressed opposition to the presence of Muslims, period, saying the worship center in Kennesaw “will endanger our freedom.” “And it’s all about safety,” said a speaker. “Look at the TV every night. It’s global.”
The question should be why in the world, as a Muslim, was he ever hired by Spirit Airlines in the first place?
Courthouse News An Algerian Muslim man says Spirit Airlines wrongly branded him as a potential terrorist and reported him to the FBI merely because he asked about the so-called “takeover switch” during flight training.
In a complaint filed in the federal court in Miami, Ilyes Yakoub says he applied for a position as a pilot with Spirit Airlines in August 2013, and was hired at an initial salary of $1,000 per month with a $750 per diem as he completed flight training. He says that on September 17, 2013, he was given his oral examination, and advised that he had successfully passed the examination. Afterwards, his instructor asked if he had any questions.
“Mr. Yakoub replied that he needed some clarification as to exactly how the Priority Switched worked on the joystick of the Airbus 329/320/321. Mr. Yakoub referred to the Priority Switch as a Takeover Switch, which terminology is used by pilots, the National Transportation Safety Board, and others.”
Two weeks after his oral exam, three FBI agents interrogated Yakoub at his home. The agents told Yakoub a complaint was made about him and his question regarding the priority switch. The Spirit flight instructor also told the FBI that Yakoub made “anti-American” statements.
Yakoub said the question was only asked because he would soon by flying that type of plane and wanted to be fully up to speed to ensure the operational safety of his flights. If a pilot does not understand the proper operation of a Priority Switch on a particular airplane, the results can be catastrophic, he said.
On October 5, 2013, Yakoub’s simulator partner took his final exam; Yakoub says he however was denied the opportunity and relegated to “non-flying pilot tasks” during the test. He says his own final exam was rescheduled twice before received an October 7, 2013, call from the head of the school, telling him to come to the training center and to bring all of his Spirit Airlines company materials with him.
Yakoub said when he arrived he was told he was being fired and was handed a termination letter stating, in part, that he had contributed to his simulator partner’s failure. Yakoub notes in his complaint that despite failing the final exam, his partner, a Catholic of Jamaican decent, was not fired. He also claims that ultimately every other student in the training class was hired, except for him and another Middle Eastern man who was also a Muslim.
Yakoub seeks back pay, front pay, lost benefits and punitive damages on claims Spirit Airlines violated his Civil Rights under Title VII as well as under Florida anti-discrimination statutes, and negligent supervision.
The war of words between community activist Quanell X, CAIR, and an elementary school teacher is escalating after he accused of her of making racist and anti-Muslim remarks on a political internet show, “Tommy’s Garage.” Angela Box, third-grade teacher at Daily Elementary School, fired back.
Click2Houston She displayed a press release sent out by the activist accusing her of using an expletive and racist remark to describe President Obama. Box said she never used the term. “This is a lie. I demand that Quanell X apologize to me for his lies,” said Box. “This false and malicious quote has damaged my reputation and caused significant harm to me on a personal and a professional level.”
Quanell X told Local 2 that he never said that she used the term instead he tells Local 2 that he quoted Box as saying “f****** president.” Tom Adkins, the host of “Tommy’s Garage,” offered $1,000 to Quanell X to prove that Box made the statement. “If he does not accept this challenge, I reserve the right to call Quanell X a liar forever. In fact, I’ll call him ‘Quanell Liar’ every time I refer to him for the rest of his life,” said Adkins.
Why Islam and Climate Change? Both are dangerous, tyrannical, political ideologies designed to destroy America and redistribute wealth.
KVUE “We want to make sure we have the correct information in the textbooks,” said Roy White with Truth in Texas Textbooks Coalition. The organization released hundreds of pages of suggested corrections, including to texts characterizing the U.S. as a democracy rather than a constitutional republic.
The group is pursuing other areas of concern as well, including passages it believes promotes Islam over Christianity. The organization argues “jihad” should be defined as a violent religious war, as opposed to the broader and more innocuous “struggle” used by dishonest Muslims. One alleged example of Islamic bias cited in the executive summary references a passage from Worldview Software American History II: Post Civil War America to the Present. The text reads:
“On the other hand, the U.S. forced Israel to withdraw from the area around the Suez Canal in 1956, putting an end to an Israeli invasion of Egypt meant to assure its access to that canal. Most importantly, over the course of many years, the U.S. has prodded Israel (sometimes quite energetically) to seek a comprehensive peace settlement in the Middle East, particularly with the Palestinian people.
The organization’s response states, “The language of invasion is very misleading and casts Israel in the role of aggressor, which is contrary to fact. Also, when it says the U.S. is prodding Israel to make peace with the Palestinians, it looks as though Israel is resisting peace and the Palestinians want it while the reverse is the case.”
“We had a variety of different issues, and we kind of ranked our top ten,” said White. “Some of those areas were pro-Islamic, anti-Christian issues, but there were also many others related to just how Israel is depicted in the Middle East. How our government, free-market system seems to be belittled and not emphasized versus communistic-type governments.”
Yet reviewers for the Texas Freedom Network found passages they felt treated Islam too harshly. In its own summary of concerns, the organization points to a portion of Social Studies School Service Active Classroom: World History which states, “Much of the violence you read or hear about in the Middle East is related to a jihad.”
“This broad charge effectively blames Islam for a very complex cycle of violence and counter-violence,” the Texas Freedom Network summary argues, “A cycle driven by a host of factors (e.g., natural resources, population pressures) besides radical Islam.”
“But the scholars that reviewed those textbooks found that the portrayal of Islam was mostly done pretty fairly and accurately,” said president Kathy Miller.
Poor little piggy, imagine being thrust into such a hostile environment.
SMH A pig’s head has been thrown at a mosque in Newcastle – the second attack at the site in less than a week. The head was discovered by worshippers in the mosque’s courtyard in Wallsend just before midday on Wednesday. The incident was caught on CCTV.
What a colossal waste of police time
“It’s a sad incident,” Newcastle Muslim Association spokeswoman Diana Rah said. “It’s not so much the action itself, but it’s the intention and hate behind it. “We’ve got a lot of support from the wider community, so it’s a shame that there are elements in the community who commit these sorts of crimes.” (Those “elements” represent most of the community, you fool)
Newcastle Superintendent John Gralton would not comment on the motivation behind the attack and has appealed for information from the public. (Don’t hold your breath)“This type of incident does not belong anywhere in Newcastle or in NSW,” he said. “The command will use all resources to bring those responsible to justice.” (Don’t you have Muslim terrorists for which to better engage all your resources?)
Last Wednesday, a Muslim man allegedly was punched in the face and racially taunted outside the mosque as he left prayer. (What ‘race’ is Islam?) Ms Rah wasn’t sure if the two attacks were linked. (Probably not, pretty much everyone hates muslims now)
“In the last couple of months there has been a heightened level of verbal abuse, especially with women in the community being targeted because they’re easily identifiable wearing headbags,” she said. “But the incident last week, and this incident again this week, has probably put a bit of fear into our community.” (Time to get out of Australia, don’tcha think?)
The NSW member for Wallsend, Sonia Hornery, condemned “the sickening racist attack” on the mosque and said she hoped the perpetrators were brought to justice quickly. (“Racist?” What the hell ‘race’ is Islam?)
“This is the second attack on the mosque within seven days and I will be seeking more information from local police to see what can be done to ensure that this stops,” she wrote on Facebook. (Only the second?)
Legal discovery continues in a lawsuit filed earlier this year by notorious loud-mouthed Newark Muslim leader Mustafa El-Amin against the Newark Board of Education and former Newark Central High Principal and current Newark Mayor Ras Baraka among other defendants. The five count lawsuit, filed by Ryan Linder, Esq., alleges that El-Amin was denied a previously granted religious accommodation and wrongfully terminated because of his religious beliefs.
Herald Online El-Amin, a New Jersey native with a master’s degree in public administration from Rutgers University, had been an employee of the Newark Board of Education since 1983, serving most recently as a tenured special education teacher. Outside of his employment, El-Amin is the Imam of Masjid Ibrahim, one of New Jersey’s largest mosques and is regarded as a leader of New Jersey’s Muslim community.
According to the lawsuit, prior to transferring to Newark Central High, El-Amin requested and was granted a religious accommodation that allowed him to attend Al Jumu’ah, a weekly Muslim religious service, every Friday afternoon, enabling him to observe his faith.
Upon arrival at Central High in 2010, El-Amin demanded the religious accommodation to attend weekly services. According to the lawsuit, El-Amin was denied the religious accommodation and was instead subjected to retaliation, religious discrimination and harassment.
Among the allegations in the lawsuit, defendant Sheila Larenceau, who served as El-Amin’s supervisor, besmirched El-Amin’s reputation among his colleagues and belittled his religious beliefs. According to the lawsuit, Larenceau told two of El-Amin’s fellow teachers that he did not want to do any work because he was solely concerned with that “Muslim stuff.”
When El-Amin complained to then-principal Baraka, his religious accommodation was again denied, according to the lawsuit. Faced with choosing between his faith and his job, El-Amin resigned his position in 2012.
The lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages for lost income as well as physical, mental and emotional distress. Copies of the complaint are available for downloadhere and at www.lawsuitpressrelease.com.
