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.

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.

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.

312558-61da3a6a-a2eb-11e4-b988-694a6302ad1f

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.

Free-speech-misuse

“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.”

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott had previously spoken to say he hoped few people would attend. He warned against the rally being used to incite terrorism and called on Muslim leaders to distance themselves from “evil things that are done in the name of Islam”.

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.

IMG_8678_2-vi

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.

AUSTRALIA: Arson suspected in Queensland mosque fire

imagesAn arson investigation has been launched after a suspicious fire at a mosque in Toowoomba, in Queensland. Police say it appears someone lit a fire in a plastic bin after they forced entry to a wooden building next to the main Mosque building on West Street, just after 1pm on Saturday.

6044776-3x2-940x627

SBS  A gas stove was also deliberately turned on, but the leaking gas failed to ignite. Fire crews rushed to the property to find fumes pouring into the building, as well as minor fire damage. The incident is being treated as suspicious, police say.

The mosque – the Queensland city’s first – opened last year after years of fundraising by local Muslim groups. Islamic Society of Toowoomba founding president Professor Shahjahan Khan said it looked as though someone had tried to burn the mosque’s office door and leak gas into the main meeting hall.

RAMADAN PRAYERS SYDNEY

Other patrons told him CCTV cameras mounted inside the building had been broken along with a number of windows. “It’s just out of expectations that this kind of attempt to burn places of worship can happen,” Prof Khan told AAP.

The incident had the hallmarks of a well-planned, serious attempt to burn the mosque down despite such an attack being out of character for such a peaceful city, he said.

“I hope that it’s going to unite the community more than anything else. (Oh, you can be sure it will)

ANOTHER ISLAMIC BEHEADING – Looks to be the Taliban

Unlike the typical al-Qaeda dull-knife slow beheading, this one features a large cleaver delivering one swift swipe to the back of the neck. However, the first blow fails to totally sever the head from the neck.

One would think that given its own long history under Islamic supremacist rule, Spain, today, would not be a “hot spot for Islamic jihadists”

But, sadly, it is. Spain’s branch of the anti-Islamization movement PEGIDA called their homeland a “jihad hot spot,” claiming jihadists in Spain to be the most active and dangerous in Europe. 

PEGIDA-Spain

Sputnik News (h/t Maria J) Spain’s jihadist movement is one of the most dangerous in Europe, the Spanish branch of the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (Pegida) movement told Sputnik. “The jihadist movement in Spain is one of the most active and dangerous in Europe,” Pegida members said in an email, calling Spain a “jihad hot spot.”

The members of the movement said Spaniards were growing tired of their country’s Islamization, explaining a growing interest in PEGIDA activities.

1015505143

“There are many people in Spain who are tired of Europe’s Islamization, and many show interest in our movement. We are surprised by the number of Spaniards that show support for us,” the email said.

The PEGIDA members noted that Islamists’ plans to conquer the Iberian Peninsula were nothing new, as the latter saw the region as their territory.

PEGIDA, which held protests following terror attacks in Paris last week, will hold a rally in Madrid and expects the movement to grow gradually in Spain and in Europe, as it has in Germany. German PEGIDA members will also attend the Madrid rally.

PEGIDA is particularly active in Germany, organizing weekly rallies in the country. The movement has drawn criticism from the country’s officials, who accused Pegida of promoting hatred.

Spanish police arrest four suspected members of an Islamic jihadist cell.

1016985488

FOX News  Spanish National Police arrested four suspected jihadis Saturday in the country’s North African enclave of Ceuta who allegedly had formed a terror cell and were ready to carry out an attack, the Interior Ministry said.

Interior Minister Jorge Fernandez Diaz said investigators, working with their Moroccan counterparts, were struck by the similarities between the suspected cell members and the two French brothers who killed 12 people in an attack upon the Charlie Hebdo newspaper in Paris.

‘These are two pairs of very radicalized brothers who are highly trained militarily, physically and mentally and are prepared to carry out an attack, and ready, according to the police, to blow themselves up in the act.’

Spain jihadists

The ministry said the four were following instructions given by the al-Qaida in Iraq leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, via what it called “a powerful and aggressive communication campaign” including jihadi Internet forums and websites. Investigators were still assessing the cell’s “infrastructure to carry out terror attacks in the country,” the ministry said.

SOUTHERN PHILIPPINES: Two killed, 54 wounded after explosion near bus terminal

Muslim terrorists are suspected.

meme76cba88b6011a62d

SCMP  A powerful explosion killed at least two people and wounded 54 others in a southern Philippine port city that has been hit by similar blasts blamed on Muslim militants, police said today The blast occurred at a bar across the street from a busy bus terminal in Zamboanga city, damaged nearby establishments and hitting the victims with flying glass and debris.

One officer was among the wounded, police said. Police suspected the Islamic militant Abu Sayyaf group, which operates in Zamboanga and nearby provinces, saying the attack could have been in retaliation for the foiled prison escape of a brother of one of the group’s leaders.

bomb_explosion_epa-1

Earlier this week, army special forces killed at least three Abu Sayyaf gunmen in running gunbattles and have continued to pursue the militants in nearby Basilan province. The group has previously set off bombs to divert attention from military operations. The bar and the bus terminal had been separately hit several years ago by bomb blasts blamed on the Abu Sayyaf.

At least two suspected militants were arrested in another bomb attack near a police station last month, he said. The Abu Sayyaf numbers about 300 fighters and remains a major security threat in the country’s south despite US-backed Philippine military offensives.

ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS) claims to have beheaded one Japanese hostage, Haruna Yukawa

‘We will NOT give in to terrorism': Japanese Prime Minister in defiant attack on ISIS extremists after video that claims hostage has been beheaded is released. 

Second hostage Kenji Goto

UK Daily Mail (h/t Maria J)  The Japanese government has made a defiant attack on ISIS after the release of a new audio recording purporting to be from one of the hostages pictured with terrorist Jihadi John. In the recording (below), a voice claiming to be that of Kenji Goto, 47, one of the Japanese men who appeared in the terror group’s latest video, says his fellow captive, Haruna Yukawa, has been killed. The new recording claims the terrorists no longer want the money.

‘They are just demanding the release of their imprisoned sister Sajida al-Rishawi. It is simple, you give them Sajida, and I will be released, says Goto in the video ‘Our government representatives are ironically in Jordan where their sister Sajida is held by the Jordanian regime.’

He blames the death on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and says he will be killed as well if ISIS’s new demand to release a failed female suicide bomber is not met.  Speaking today, Mr Abe condemned the video, branding it ‘outrageous and unacceptable’, but said his government ‘will not give in to terrorism’.

In a televised statement he added: ‘We strongly demand the prompt release of the remaining captive Mr. Kenji Goto, without harm.’ Prime Minister Shinzo Abe added ‘I have a strong sense of anger,’ before reiterating that Japan ‘will not give in to terrorism.’

Kyodo News agency reported that the video has been emailed to the wife of one of the hostages. If the video does turn out to be genuine, then it would be a radical departure from the Islamic State’s usual method of operations. 

ISIS typically uses high-definition video recordings to make its threats, usually recorded somewhere in the desert, though to be located in the area around Raqqa in Syria. The latest clip is accompanied by Arabic subtitles, as is standard for ISIS videos, but is missing the black and white jihadi flag that appears on all other ISIS propaganda.

VIDEO below, sent to hostage Kenji Goto’s family, is allegedly the voice of Goto, freelance journalist, who is relaying ISIS’ demands in exchange for his release: 

 

Now. before you cloud up and rain over the dead Japanese hostage, please understand that he was a confirmed Muslim Jihadist, who had converted to Islam and had joined up with an ISIS rival Islamic Front.

Shoebat (h/t Russian Bear)  Haruna Yukawa, his first name is not Haruna but Harukana Yukawa  and his Facebook shows him handling an AK47 quite well. Harukana twisted his name to an Islamic name Harun, a common Muslim name. His conversion to Islam became obvious once we investigated Haruna communications and relations on his Facebook in which he had a love relationship with a Jihadi operative named Abu Tamim Al-Mari’i from Jabha Islamiyah of Sham (Islamic Front of the Levant). 

Here, Haruna Yukawa prepares to fire an AK47 in a military video:

One of Yukawa favorite links is also Jabha Islamiyah (Islamic Front) on his Facebook which the link has posted a Jihadist logo that states “Islam is our pride and we will shatter your democracy.”

In one post Yukawa messages his boyfriend Abu Tamim in classical Arabic, “ana aydan bahibbak” (I love you too). This love relationship with Al-Mari’i will disclose even more truths behind Yukawa.

harun1-copy-2

The Arabic reveals more than just a love relationship, in one post Abu Tamim Al-Mari’i receives a message from Yukawa “I’ve been captured by Al-Qaeda Al-Baghdadi …” which Abu Tamim Al-Mari’i posts and comments on it saying: “Haruna Yukawa [code name] Abu-Mujahid in Islam is now captive with ISIS”. Abu Tamim reveals that his boyfriend, Yukawa, is Muslim convert code named Abu Mujahid, (Arabic: father of Jihad) “in Islam” which signifies he is not only a Muslim, but a Jihadist, yet the media tells us that Yukawa was only “the chief executive of Private Military Company.”

The Islamic Front which Yukawa and Tamim belonged to is a Jihadi group working to establish an Islamic State run Caliphate in Syria and Iraq that differs from ISIS. Yukawa is not the only Japanese who joined the Jihadist groups. There are also other Japanese serving with Jabha Islamiyah of Sham (Islamic Front of the Levant) whom Yukawa likes:

These Japanese, like James Foley are Jihadist sympathizers who pussyfooted with Islam, its obvious that Haruna Yukawa converted to Islam and just like the others did before him and now he dies as a sacrifice, not for any good cause, but to play right into what Shinzo Abe of Japan wants which is a  game plan against the country’s anti-war constitution.

In agreement with most BNI readers, the Japanese have no sympathy for their fellow countrymen threatened with beheading by the Islamic State (ISIS)

While the clock ticks down for two Japanese hostages held by ISIS, their countrymen think they’ve brought the problem on themselves. In fact, they are mocking ISIS terrorists and two the captives in Twitter and Facebook memes gone viral in Japan.

TIME  Japanese government officials continued to press for the release of two Japanese citizens being held by Islamist militants in Syria late Friday, even as a presumed deadline for paying the $200 million ransom expired.

Oh, NOES! Muslims are feeling threatened because of a film again

Muslims in America are whining that Academy Award nominated film, “American Sniper” is inspiring threats to Arabs and Muslims. (Yeah, it’s not because of  Islamic terrorism and beheadings, its a film’s fault)

memeee72e62c02844d46

Detroit Free Press  As “American Sniper” continues to ignite political debate, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee is worried about “serious threats” being made to Arabs and Muslims.

The film is based on the book about real life sniper Chris Kyle. And in the book Kyle writes of killing 60 Iraqi “savages” during his four deployments. “Savage, despicable evil. That’s what we were fighting in Iraq,” Kyle writes.

 

The ADC says it has collected “hundreds of violent messages targeting Arabs and Muslims from moviegoers of the film.” The group has sent letters to the film’s star, Bradly Cooper, and director Clint Eastwood asking “to help reduce the hateful rhetoric.”

ADC president Samer Khalaf writes that he hopes the film will take a stance and issue a statement against the “hate and bigotry.” The ADC says it is also working with the FBI and local law enforcement to look into the threats.

 

   

So far, no comment from the “American Sniper” film team.

Former Saturday Night Live actress, Victoria Jackson, gets smeared by Muslims at Vanderbilt University for telling the truth about Islam

victoria-jackson-muslims-taking-over-us“Why can’t I say that Mohammed had a wife who was six years old?” As Muslim students at Vanderbilt and their allies gathered to protest an anti-Islam op-ed by a conservative black professor, they probably didn’t expect their party to be crashed by a 1980s-era Saturday Night Livecast member-turned- Concervative Tea Partier.

The College Fix  Jackson – who carried a “ban Sharia” sign with her, later tried to convince a Muslim man at the protest to have a debate on “Sharia law and whether we have freedom of speech,” as captured by The College Fix’s exclusive video.

article-0-1B31D28500000578-821_1024x615_large-e1395536489868

“Why can’t I say that Mohammed had a wife who was six years old?” Jackson said, prompting several protesters to interrupt her and complain that the media were paying attention to her.

The Saturday afternoon protest was organized by Muslim student Farishtay Yamin, who looked on proudly as chants of “Vanderbilt united will never be divided!” and “To reach peace, teach peace!” grew louder. It was in response to an op-ed written in The Tennessean by Carol Swain, a black professor at Vanderbilt Law School.

Responding to the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris but not targeting any person or group on campus, Swain asserted that Islam “poses an absolute danger to us and our children” and called for “serious monitoring of Islamic organizations.” 

swainprotest.JRRidley

But Swain’s speech must be curtailed, Yamin said: “What I’m really trying to show her is that she can’t continue to say these kinds of things on a campus that’s so liberal and diverse and tolerant” or “say bigoted things about her own students.”

The sizeable Muslim population at Vanderbilt and the terror-linked Muslim Brotherhood front group MSA Muslim Students Association, one of the most prominent radical Muslim organizations on campus, generated such an uproar about Swain’s op-ed that it drew an administration response:

Dean of Students Mark Bandas emailed the student body to say that that Muslim students had told him they have “felt welcome and safe at Vanderbilt until you read this piece.” Bandas told students to use their freedom of expression to challenge “polarizing speech” and “engage in dialogue with … those with whom you disagree.”
