Muslims in America give new meaning to the Yiddish term “chutzpah!”

chutzpah-1Seasoned pros at playing the ‘victim’ card, Muslims in America are taking the concept of ‘chutzpah’ to a whole new level by demanding that the U.S. government give them special protection during their pilgrimage to the Hajj in Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Think Progress  (h/t Larry A) A group of American Muslims sent a letter to the U.S. State Department on Tuesday, imploring the government to provide protection against militants and other threats that could endanger them during their religious pilgrimage to Mecca in October.


The letter, signed by 28 different Muslim groups, asked Secretary of State John Kerry to take measures to safeguard Americans participating in this year’s hajj, an annual ritual required of all followers of Islam who have the ability and means to make the journey to Mecca.

“We urge you to take immediate action to protect American citizens who travel overseas to perform one of the five mandatory acts of their faith and ensure that Saudi Arabia addresses this urgent security matter in preparation for the upcoming Hajj pilgrimage,” the letter read.


Signers cited several reasons for sending the letter, but rooted their concern in a 2013 incident when a group of American Muslims were brutally attacked as they took part in the hajj. While staying at a camp outside of Mecca, a band of Lebanese-Australians reportedly confronted the U.S. citizens, which included three women featured in the reality TV show All-American Muslim.

The attackers shouted insults at the Michigan natives, decrying them for being Shia Muslims before strangling one man until his face turned blue and telling the women that they would “rape them all” if they didn’t leave. saudi-arabia-american-muslims-visiting-holy-city-of-mecca-for-the-hajj-get-threatened-and-attacked-by-muslims

“The right to freely practice one’s faith without fear of harassment, intimidation, or violence is a constitutional guarantee, as well as an international human rights norm,” the letter read.

“Every American citizen traveling or living abroad should have full assurance that the U.S. government will come vigorously to his or her defense if they are unjustly detained, attacked, or harassed by local authorities,” the letter read. “These protections, including but not limited to meaningful access to full consular services, must be afforded to all American citizens visiting Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj.”



MINNESOTASTAN: Hamas’ American affiliate CAIR says “jump.” Obama and Holder say, “how high?”

60_416307505140894_305821740_n-viThe U.S. attorney’s office and the U.S. Department of Justice filed suit Wednesday against the city of St. Anthony, contending its City Council violated federal law by rejecting a proposed Islamic indoctrination center in 2012. U.S. Attorney Andy Luger said his office found that the council’s decision to deny the Abu Huraira Islamic Center the right to worship in the St. Anthony Business Center violated the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act passed by Congress.

Star Tribune  Federal authorities are asking for an injunction from a federal judge ordering St. Anthony to permit the group to use the basement of the business center.


In June 2012, the council voted down the proposed center, concluding that a religious and cultural center was incompatible with the site’s light-industrial zoning. The council’s 4-1 decision went against a city planning commission recommendation to approve the 15,000-square-foot center in the old Medtronic headquarters at 3055 Old Highway 8.

The council decision came after some St. Anthony residents voiced their opposition to the proposed center. More than 150 people packed the meeting, and some made disparaging remarks about the Muslim faith. Jim Roth, the lone council member to back the Islamic center, predicted at the time of the vote that the council’s rejection would spawn a lawsuit. Roth said he was “embarrassed” and “stunned” by some of the remarks made.


On Wednesday, St. Anthony officials continued to defend the council’s action, saying that the rejection of the Islamic center was based purely on zoning issues. “Religious uses of any type are allowed in the vast majority of the city. They are just not allowed in the roughly five percent of the city reserved for industrial uses,” said St. Anthony City Attorney Jay Lindgren.

Lindgren said the denial “was not based on discrimination at all,” but rather “on the conclusion that religious assembly of any type is not allowed in an industrial zone. “An industrial zone is designed to create jobs and be an economic engine,” he said.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Minneapolis has spent two years investigating the matter, with its spokeswoman saying at one point that it had sought to reach an out-of-court agreement with the parties.


At the heart of the federal suit is the allegation that the City Council treated an application for a conditional-use permit to assemble at the business center on less-than-equal terms from other, nonreligious conditional-use permits for assembly. While prohibiting the Islamic center in the light industrial zone, it allowed for a union hall with banquet facilities to be rented by the public, the suit said. The city permitted the union hall because the light industrial zone allowed for “assemblies, meeting lodges and convention halls.”

The Minnesota Chapter of terror-linked CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) had asked federal authorities to investigate whether the city violated the federal law on religious land use. In August 2012, two months after the council’s rejection, the Muslim group proposing the Islamic center purchased the former Medtronic Inc. headquarters for $1.9 million.


The suit contends that the Islamic center conducts an “assembly” and therefore barring it violates federal law. Lindgren said there was a similar denial of a Christian-based organization around that same time as well.

Mosques and Islamic school projects have faced opposition across the state. Some community members opposed projects in Plymouth, Willmar, Bloomington and Blaine, as well as out of state as in Murfreesboro, TN, where a 2-year hostile battle raged, but all were reluctantly approved, thanks to pressure from the Feds.


The U.S. attorney’s office said that the treatment of the center’s backers added substantial burdens to its members practicing their faith. “Abu Huraira members’ ability to exercise their religion is limited by their current worship site options, including, but not limited to the fact that members in the northern Twin Cities are burdened from praying together based on the lengthy of time it takes to travel to the worship centers in south Minneapolis,” the U.S. attorney’s office said in a statement.

“Moreover,” the statement said, “prayer space at locations in Minneapolis are too small to accommodate members, many of whom often have to pray in hallways or entryways, and hold multiple pray sessions in shifts to accommodate crowds.”

Ban On Street Prayers Comes Into Effect Across France

After the council denied the permit in St. Anthony, three churches in St. Anthony held an interfaith meeting between Christian sympathizers and Muslim leaders in July 2012 to address some of the negative comments made at the council meeting.

“Some things had been said at the City Council meeting that sounded unwelcoming and unfriendly. There was a desire to show a different face on things,” said Rev. Paul La Fontaine, with St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church which co-sponsored the event. He said he was surprised by news of the federal lawsuit.

Asked about the community’s perception of the Muslim faith, he said: “In light of recent events overseas, there is a certain concern.  St. Anthony is a “first-ring” suburb of Minneapolis that’s just 2.35 square miles with 8,200 people.







PRO-HAMAS MUSLIM gang waving Palestinian flags attack Jewish couple on a street in Manhattan

Muslim assailants hurled anti-Semitic slurs before attacking the woman and punching her husband as he tried to stop them.


INN A Jewish couple in New York were physically assaulted Monday by an anti-Semitic gang, who then fled the scene in cars flying the Palestinian Authority flag, according to the New York Post. Police sources say two cars and several motorbikes suddenly pulled up next to the couple as they were walking on East 63rd Street near Third Avenue on the Upper East Side, just after 8 p.m. Monday evening.

The attackers then started shouting “anti-Jewish statements,”, before launching their assault. One of the men struck the woman with a water bottle, and another punched her husband in the side of his head as he intervened to defend her.

The victims, who live in the area, were left shaken but not seriously injured. Their identities have not been released, but the Post said the husband was 27 years old, and that they may have been targeted because he was wearing a kippa (skullcap).


WOW! In Dearbornistan, a city in Michigan with about 30,000 Muslims, a whopping 25 – 30 of them do not support ISIS (Islamic State) terrorists

The city of Dearborn is a well-known safe haven for Muslims in America. With a population of around 98,000 people, roughly 30% (30,000) of Dearborn residents are Muslim, making it the largest concentration of Muslims in the United States. So, I guess this means that up to 29,970 of the rest of them could, in fact, be ISIS supporters. Hmmm.

Funny though, Muslims seem to have no problem coming out in large numbers – hundreds and thousands – to protest against the NYPD, Israel, or a video about the prophet Mohammed. Just sayin’.


DHIMMITUDE in Vermont as restaurant takes down ‘bacon’ sign because it offended one Muslim bitch

Winooski, Vermont restaurant ‘Sneakers Bistro’ has removed its sign that read, “Yield for Sneakers Bacon,” citing opposition from yet another perpetually outraged Muslim as well as for safety concerns.

(Safety concerns as in you are scared to death a Muslim will blow up your restaurant?)


Breitbart (h/t Jim Y)  The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report. WPTZ wrote that the woman who complained online called the sign “insensitive to those who do not consume pork.” (CRAP! Yet another example of Muslim supremacism destroying the fabric of America, aided and abetted by the sharia-compliant Left)

Saturday morning the restaurant posted to Facebook, “We are here to serve people BREAKFAST, not politics. We removed the sign that was located on public property as a gesture of respect for our diverse community. There were also concerns raised about safety. Removing it was not a difficult decision. We still love bacon. We still love eggs. Please have the political conversation elsewhere.”

Well, duh…”Was my wife attacked at an Indiana Walmart because she was wearing black garbage bag?”

UnknownAs a husband, he wants to know why. Why would someone walk up behind his Muslim wife in a burqa in a crowded public space in a safe community and hit her with a blow that, although violent, left the couple with more questions than actual pain. Was it because of the traditional Muslim clothing she wore that day?

Indy Star  “What was he thinking?” the husband, Abdelhakim Ejjair, said as we talked recently. “Does he hate Muslims? I just want know what was in his head. What was the reason?” (YES, he hates Muslims)

Bouchra Bahda

Bouchra Bahda

As Ejjair sat in his Far-Westside apartment Tuesday, his wife, Bouchra Bahda, on the couch nearby, he recalled details of the incident that took place a few weeks ago. The couple had just left the Walmart store when they realized they had forgotten to buy something on their shopping list. Bahda returned to the store while her husband loaded the car and watched over their children, ages 5 and 6. That’s when it happened. Near the entrance, on a day when many customers were entering and exiting the store, a young man zeroed in on Bahda and, from behind, struck her with a hard down swipe on the shoulder.

“She got mad — really, really mad,” Ejjair said, translating for his wife, 42, who speaks Arabic and French but only limited English. “This has never happened to her in her life.” (Better go back to Morocco)


Ejjair and his wife are natives of Morocco and have permanent resident status in the United States. He moved here in 1998, hoping to get a college degree in engineering, but has worked in food service at a Downtown hotel since arriving, often holding other jobs on the side to pay the bills. Bahda joined him after they married in 2007. Their experience here has been positive, they say.

With the exception of that recent afternoon. Ejjair saw the assault and raced from the family’s car, confronting the young man, who immediately asked if the older man wanted to fight. A slight of frame 48-year-old, Ejjair said he almost took the assailant up on the offer. (But he didn’t have the usual gang of Muslim thugs with him, so he decided not to)

Instead, he pulled out his mobile phone and called police. The man fled, stopping to talk with a group in a red pickup truck before leaving the parking lot. A Wal-Mart surveillance video, police say, corroborates the story, but the suspect has not been located.


For the Far-Westside couple, the incident left deep concerns. As we talked, Bahda left the room and reemerged dressed just as she was that Wednesday afternoon. She was observing Ramadan at the time and walked into Wal-Mart wearing a long black garbage bag, called an abaya, and a head scarf, a hijab. Why, she asked, would that make anyone mad? (Because it represents Islamic supremacism and everything that disgusts Americans about Islam)

At the Plainfield-based Islamic Society of North America, communications director Edgar Hopida said the incident was an aberration in a region that traditionally has been open to a growing Muslim population that has settled most heavily on the Westside of Indianapolis. (Get used to it. As the Muslim population continues to explode so will the backlash against them)

“I’m shocked this would happen in a town like Avon, a place with very low crime,” he said. “It’s a very peaceful community.” (That’s before Muslims started their invasion of America, aided and abetted by Barack Hussein Obama)



Snafu threatens deal over Muslim beards at Philadelphia Police Department

UnknownThe ink was all but dry on an agreement that would have brought to an end an ongoing civil rights suit brought by the U.S. Justice Department against the Philadelphia schools. But an eleventh-hour snag in a settlement aimed at protecting the religious right of Muslim employees to wear long beards now threatens to derail the deal.  The suit at the center of the current dispute was filed in March by Siddiq Abu-Bakr, a police officer who has worked for the district since 1987. He contended that his civil rights were violated when he was ordered to trim his beard to a quarter-inch length under a dress-and-grooming code adopted by the district in 2010.

Siddiq Abu-Bakr

“The School District refused to sign the agreement if it were made public,” the Justice Department wrote in a recent court motion. This month, the department took the unusual step of asking a federal judge to enforce the accord over the district’s objections. — The U.S. Department of Justice has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the School District of Philadelphia, claiming a rule regulating the length of employees’ beards constitutes religious discrimination. According to the suit filed in March 2014, the district in October 2010 instituted a new grooming policy preventing school police officers and security guards from having beards longer than a quarter of an inch.


School police officer Siddiq Abu-Bakr maintained an untrimmed beard for the 27 years he worked at the district, the suit states. Abu-Bakr is a member of the Islamic faith, which he says requires that he not cut his beard.

When Abu-Bakr notified his supervisor his religious beliefs precluded him from complying with the new policy, he was allegedly issued a written reprimand cautioning that continued violation of the rule would result in “further disciplinary action.”

Though, according to the suit, Abu-Bakr provided district officials with a letter from his imam confirming his religion prohibited him from trimming his beard, the district allegedly responded his request was outweighed by “the integrity of the policy.”

Abu-Bakr, who has maintained a long beard for religious reasons throughout his employment with the district, refused, and was reprimanded and threatened with further disciplinary action. His suit sought a religious accommodation to the dress code and monetary damages for any other affected district employees.

Court filings suggest the district and Justice Department attorneys reached an agreement within months of the filing of Abu-Bakr’s suit. The school system would revise its grooming code to allow for religious accommodations and provide supervisor training. Two officers would be offered $4,500 in monetary damages.

But hours later, the Justice Department says, the district returned with an ultimatum: Keep the deal off public court dockets, or it would back out.




TEMPLE UNIVERSITY Jewish student punched in the face and called a “kike” by rabid Muslims

templeA Jewish student on the campus of Temple University was assaulted on Wednesday afternoon and called “kike” and “baby killer” by alleged members of the anti-Semitic student group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). Police are investigating the assault as a possible hate crime.


Truth Revolt  Daniel Vessal, a Camera on Campus fellow and a member of the Jewish fraternity AEPi, was punched in the face by a violent alleged member of the anti-Israel organization SJP at “Templefest” which is organized for students on campus to gain new information about campus clubs a week before the start of classes. Vessal is a managing information systems major at the Fox School of Business at the university.

“I’m walking down Polett Walk, one of the main walkways through Temple University and I see the SJP table,” Vessal said from a local area hospital. “I went up to the table and started talking to them. I said, ‘listen, you shouldn’t be protesting Israel- if anything protest the terrorists.’” I said, ‘when Hamas stops sending the rockets, that’s when there can be peace. That’s when we can start.’”

“And then this kid just rocks me in the face as hard as he can. My glasses flew off. After a two-second blur I had no clue what had happened. I couldn’t believe the kid actually hit me,” said Vessal who added that he needs to obtain a new pair of glasses due to the extensive damage. “When the police came over and were filing the report the kids at the table were screaming ‘You Zionist pig, you racist, that’s what you get,’” Vessal explained.

A copy of the medical evaluation provided exclusively to Truth Revolt listed mandibular pain, cervical sprain, and closed head injury.


ALASKA LOOK OUT! A new mosquetrosity will soil the serene landscape of our Northern-most state

alaskaOn the edge of this northern outpost an unfamiliar sight is emerging: twin giant minarets. Alaska’s small but growing muslim community is building the state’s first newly constructed mosque and terrorism indoctrination center. “This is our future,” said Osama Obeidi, one of the muslim-Americans leading the building effort for the Islamic Community Center of Anchorage. “We have second-generation Alaskans now, and (thanks to  Obama’s ‘flood-America-with-as-many-muslims-as-possible’ policies) new muslims coming all the time.”

WSJ via Creeping Sharia (h/t Susan K)  The 15,000-square-foot mosque, taking shape near a Sons of Norway Viking Hall, will eventually include a Sunday school and a community center. Heated floors will make worship in the bitter winters more comfortable.


The mosque is perhaps the clearest sign yet that Islam in the U.S. is rapidly pushing beyond traditional population centers such as Detroit and Los Angeles. As the number of American Muslims grows through both immigration and higher-than-average birthrates, domes and minarets are sprouting in areas as varied as the eastern mountains of Kentucky and Louisiana’s parishes.

The building boom reflects American Muslims’ desire for a sense of permanence as their religion shifts from one mainly imported by immigrants to one practiced by their American-born children and grandchildren, Muslim leaders say. The Muslim population in the U.S. is expected to more than double by 2030, to 6.2 million, according to a 2011 Pew Research Center study. By then, Muslims are expected to represent 1.7% of the U.S. population, making them as numerous as American Jews or Episcopalians today, the study says.


But rapid expansion has brought growing pains. Congregations are competing for construction funds and religious leaders, or imams, since both are in limited supply. And directing cash toward buildings can leave little for programming to retain young followers and offer professional counseling and educational services, some Muslim leaders say.

“There’s this ‘edifice complex,’ ” said Jihad Turk, president of Bayan Claremont, the Islamic graduate school at Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, Calif. “You have incredible enthusiasm and energy around fundraising and building these buildings. But there’s little attention given to the programming, best practices and governance.”

Now you can get barbarically slaughtered halal meat in Alaska

Now you can get barbarically slaughtered halal meat in Alaska

A 2011 survey of U.S. mosques found a 74% increase in the number of Muslim congregations established between 2000 and 2011, rising to 2,106 from 1,209. About 30% of those congregations built new mosques, said the report sponsored by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research and a coalition of Islamic organizations.

But even as their presence grows, Muslims continue to struggle to find their place in American society. A Pew Research study released in July showed Americans view Muslims “more coldly,” or negatively, than any other major religious group—including atheists—on a so-called “feeling thermometer.”

UH OH! Muslims in town, lock up the dogs. We know what Muslims think of dogs.

UH OH! Muslims in town, lock up the dogs. We know what Muslims think of dogs.

Though there is at least one other congregation in Alaska worshiping out of an existing space, Anchorage, with a population of about 300,000, has been one of the few sizable U.S. cities that lacked a purpose-built mosque, U.S. Muslim leaders said.

So far the mosque, which has its minaret bases but not yet its towers, hasn’t been met with much opposition, as projects have in some other parts of the country, say local Muslims and police. (Give them time. See below sign from Alaska)



KANSAS GOP volunteer says: “Offending Muslims is the duty of any civilized person”

Gavin Ellzey, the vice chairman of the Kansas Republican 3rd Congressional District Committee, advised on Twitter in early July that “offending Muslims is the duty of any civilized person.” Ellzey added, “Especially with a .45.”


Kansas City  In an interview with The Star, the Overland Park resident acknowledged writing the tweet in response to television news reports about Christians being “crucified” overseas. “Sometimes you overreact,” Ellzey said. “I’ve had folks call me,” he added. “I’m not trying to offend anybody. I sure wouldn’t shoot anybody. I don’t even own a gun.” He said he later deleted the tweet.

Mahnaz Shabbir of the Crescent Peace Society said she was shocked when she saw the tweet. “We’ve been doing a lot of work in the community to try to help others understand who we are,” she said. “When something like this comes across my computer, my first reaction is like, are you kidding me?” Shabbir said that Ellzey should be removed from his minor party office and that the Kansas GOP should apologize.

Clay Barker, executive director of the Kansas Republican Party, said the state party has “no responsibility for or connection to the public statements of private citizens who perform volunteer work for the party.”


NEVER HIRE A MUSLIM Reason #123: Headbag litigation jihad

An Alabama nursing home faces a lawsuit for allegedly refusing to allow a Muslim employee to wear a headbag which is unsanitary and scary to old people.

page04top0814_636515McKnights  The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a workplace discrimination lawsuit against Shadescrest Health Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility located in Jasper, AL. It is seeking back pay, compensatory and punitive damages, as well as an act of prohibition of further discrimination. A Shadescrest representative declined to comment on the case.

Shadescrest hired Tracy Martin, a Muslim woman, as a certified nursing assistant in August 2012, according to the lawsuit. About a week later, Martin reportedly wore a hijab and was told to “remove the head covering or be subject to termination,” the EEOC stated.  

Martin filed a discrimination complaint with the EEOC but was fired weeks after Shadescrest received notice of the action, the agency says. The EEOC contends that Martin was terminated “in retaliation” for her filed complaint and attempts to exercise her religious rights. 

The EEOC charges that Shadescrest violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects employees from religious discrimination in the workplace and termination as a result of filing a complaint with the EEOC. 





DEARBORNISTAN: Ex-Muslim fined $400 for burning qurans near mosque

A Dearborn, Michigan judge fined a 51-year-old Detroit man $400 for two misdemeanor offenses stemming from the burning of qurans in Dearborn.

Ali Hassan Al-Asadi

  Chief Judge Sam Salamey of 19th District Court in Dearborn fined Ali Hassan Al-Asadi $200 each for open burning and littering in the June 25 incident outside a Dearborn mosque, Karbalaa Islamic Education Center. Al-Asadi paid the $200 fine for the open burning charge and owes $200 for the littering charge, which must be paid within 60 days.

Al-Asadi told the Free Press last month he started burning Qurans after having some disputes involving money with a Muslim man at a local mosque. Al-Asadi said he was raised in Iraq as a Shia Muslim, but converted to Christianity and attends local churches. He told the Free Press he has has burned about a dozen Qurans over the past year.

Al-Asadi said he had also burned Qurans on June 10 outside the same Dearborn mosque a few days before Quran-burning Pastor Terry Jones of Florida visited Dearborn. Those burnings caused concern, with Gov. Rick Snyder condemning them during a visit to the Arab-American National Museum in Dearborn. After being arrested and charged in the June 25 incident, Al-Asadi was released on a $500 bond.


Dearborn Police Sgt. Douglas Topolski said that Al-Asadi told police he “repeatedly asked mosque officials for help with getting his money back from the Muslim,” but got no help.


ORLANDO al-Quds Day Rally features Jew-hating Hamas and Hezbollah supporters

Al-Quds (Arabic for Jerusalem) Day is a big holiday in Iran and Gaza which calls for the annihilation of Israel and where the crowds like to chant ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel.’

The Orlando Muslim demonstrators were brandishing Hamas and Hezbollah flags but figured they could appease the public by saying that the terrorists are really freedom fighters. They got a little nervous when they realized they were talking to people who weren’t fooled by the game they were playing. When the Hezbollah fan was asked what his name is, he answered “Shimon Peres” (Israeli president until last week)
