Jihad Jew-hating Rep Ilhan Omar: Trump not human

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 22:01

A woman faces straight ahead

At this point, no one should be surprised at what comes out of the mouth of the vile Rep. Ilhan Omar. However, Omar and the Jihad caucus will not be marginalized unless the American people take a stand in 2020. Americans must reject the radical neo-Nazi Democrat Party at the ballot box en masse.

Omar on Trump and Obama comparison: ‘One is human, the other is really not’ – The Hill, March 12, 2019, by Owen Daugherty

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) attempted to distance herself from her past comparison of former President Obama and President Trump, saying “one is human, the other is really not.”

She made the comments Monday in the halls of the Capitol while being followed by a Fox News reporter who pressed her about previous comments on the two presidents.

“That is silly to even think, and equate the two. One is human, the other is really not,” Omar said before hopping in an elevator.

Omar’s comments Monday come just days after an interview with the progressive freshman lawmaker published in Politico appeared to compare Obama to Trump.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar told Politico. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”

Minneapolis’ ‘Little Mogadishu’ Sees 56 Percent Increase in Violent Crimes Caused by Somali Muslim Gangs

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 20:40

Violence and child sex-trafficking rings, so …. let’s elect Somali leaders who support them to Congress!

Minneapolis’ ‘Little Mogadishu’ Sees 56 Percent Increase in Violent Crimes Caused by Somali Gangs

By Anthony Gockowski, Tennessee Star, January 12, 2019:

Violent crimes increased by more than 50 percent in 2018 in Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, nicknamed “little Mogadishu,” which authorities attribute to Somali gang activity in the area.

Buried in a recent Star Tribune article was the fact that violent crimes jumped from 54 in 2010 to 84 in 2018, an increase in roughly 56 percent. Authorities attribute the violence to rivalries between Somali gangs, such as the Somali Mafia, the Somali Outlaws, the Hot Boyz, and Madhibaan with Attitude, Alpha News reports.

According to a 2014 Southside Pride article, the Outlaws and Madhibaan with Attitude have a rivalry that stretches back years, and likely resulted in the murder of two Somali men in April 2014. That article notes that the summer of 2013 was a particularly bloody season for gang warfare, which produced at least 4 killings.

A 2013 CBS article detailed the involvement of the Outlaws, the Mafia, and another gang called the Lady Outlaws in a sex-trafficking ring that recruited and prostituted young girls, some of whom were under the age of 14, between 2000 and 2010. The ring was operated out of Minneapolis, Columbus, and Nashville, and resulted in the indictment of 30 individuals involved.

In 2008, the Minneapolis Police Department created a Somali liaison position to focus solely on addressing the issue. The department currently has 5 Somali-speaking officers to assist in outreach to the immigrant community. According an MPR report from the time, officers began to notice that Somali gangs were dividing themselves along the same clan lines of their war-torn country.

The issue first garnered national attention after a 2009 CBS News report titled “Rise of Somali Gangs Plagues Minneapolis,” though officers were still hesitant at the time to pin the crimes on Somali gang activity.

“It was all gang activity, totally, 100 percent,” Shukri Adan, a Somali community organizer, said of the murders of seven Somali men in a 10-month period. Adan was tasked with drafting a report for the City of Minneapolis in which he estimated that between 400 and 500 Somali men were involved in gangs.

“The police don’t want to say that but everybody else knows that,” he added.

The latest rise in violent crimes in the Cedar-Riverside area comes as a concern to many, considering that city leaders have started to invest in security upgrades and community-outreach programs. In May, for instance, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced that a high-rise apartment complex at the center of little Mogadishu would be receiving an $825,000 security upgrade, including fencing, key fobs, and numerous security cameras.

In December, the Minneapolis City Council voted to divert $43,000 from the Minneapolis Police Department to create a youth outreach team for the area, Minnesota Daily reports.

“Everybody’s gotten to the point where, hey, you know, we don’t need more police, we need more intervention,” one organizer in attendance said. Several businesses in the area have joined together to hire off-duty police officers to patrol the area, while others are donating food and beverages to hand out to youth roaming the streets.

The Star Tribune reports that the latest uptick in violent crimes is mostly due to a surge in robberies and assaults.

Each New Democratic Excuse For Ilhan Omar’s Jew-Hatred Is More Vile Than The Last

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 18:00

The horror of the hate is very real, but we can be grateful that American is seeing this, hearing this, finally — the true face of the new Nazi party. The notoriously hard left enemedia has hidden the evil of the Democrat party for far too long. Scrub as they might, this is too evil to shroud. Omar’s “it’s all about the Benjamins” remarks evoke Goebbels and company’s “international Jewish conspiracy.”

Every Democratic Excuse For Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitism Is More Vile Than The Last

By: Daily Wire, March 7, 2019:

This week, the Democratic Party proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is willing to not only countenance but embrace anti-Semitism, so long as the anti-Semitism comes from members of their intersectional coalition. In less than two months, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has fallen under scrutiny for open anti-Semitism no less than three times. First, she came under scrutiny for an old tweet in which she stated that Israel had “hypnotized the world” – an old anti-Semitic canard attributing magical powers to the Jews. Then, she came under fire for suggesting that American support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins” – an old anti-Semitic canard that Jewish money lay at the root of America’s support for Israel. Finally, she came under scrutiny for stating that American supporters of Israel were exhibiting dual loyalty – a third old anti-Semitic canard suggesting that Jews are unified by clan, and are thus a nefarious force within the broader body politic.

To these open displays of anti-Semitism, the Democratic Party leadership has responded with excuse-making. To be sure, they condemned Omar’s first comments, drawing a reluctant half-assed apology from her. But there’s no apology forthcoming anymore – in fact, the Democratic leadership has been forced to bow before the intersectional power of Omar and her fellow anti-Semitic Congressional freshman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and their Jeremy Corbyn-loving enabler, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

This entire situation has placed Democrats in a rather uncomfortable situation. After all, Democrats have portrayed themselves as the party of tolerance, the party of anti-hate – and yet here they are, full-throatedly defending the world’s oldest and most durable hatred. This has led them to make a bevy of excuses for Omar’s commentary.

1. Omar Is A Benighted Child. This has been a common excuse made by Democratic leaders: Omar must not have known what she was saying. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly said that Omar wasn’t “intentionally” anti-Semitic, and has added that she does not believe Omar “understands the full weight of the words” used. We’ve seen the same from many members of the media, who have turned themselves inside out to state that Omar’s longstanding anti-Semitism – anti-Semitism so brazen that it turned off even Jewish Democratic constituents in her district who met with her years ago – is actually just the result of her childlike naivete. If that’s the case, she should obviously be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee. But it’s not the case. Omar knows precisely what she’s saying, which is why she keeps saying it.

2. She’s Not Anti-Semitic – She’s Just Anti-Israel! This is both the most common and the most dangerous excuse-making on Omar’s behalf. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) suggested that criticism of Omar was creating a “chilling effect on our public discourse” because it was actually “branding criticism of Israel as actually anti-Semitic.” Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) went even further and suggested that criticism of Omar put Omar at risk. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) suggested, “We must not…equate anti-Semitism with legitimate criticism of the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel…What I fear is going on in the House now is an effort to target Congresswoman Omar as a way of stifling that debate.” But there is no debate. Omar didn’t make a single statement about Israel’s policies or government. She suggested that the Jewish State has hypnotic power, that Jewish money undergirds American support for Israel, and that Israel supporters have dual loyalty. This isn’t about Netanyahu or settlements or anything else Israel-related. It’s pure anti-Semitism.

This is a nefarious, evil trick. Anti-Israel commentators have for years stated that their commentary isn’t automatically anti-Semitic. They’re right – although calling for the destruction of the state of Israel or holding Israel to a double standard compared to other countries surely is. But now those same anti-Israel commentators are themselves conflating anti-Semitism with anti-Israel commentary. They’re stuffing open anti-Semitism into the anti-Israel box, then stating that those who criticize anti-Semitism are actually performing that conflation. If critics of Israel ever wonder why so many Israel supporters seem suspicious of their motives with regard to Jews, it’s because this trick has become so common.

It’s gaslighting, and it’s dangerous.

How dangerous? In 2014, a German court found that three Palestinian men who firebombed a synagogue in Germany weren’t anti-Semitic – they were merely anti-Israel. Anti-Israel criticism has become the easy way to mask anti-Semitism. Ask European Jews, who are targeted routinely – and whose targeting is then pooh-poohed by people who attribute the targeting to discontent with Israel.

3. TRUMP! This has also been a common response inside the Democratic caucus: why should we condemn anti-Semitism when Trump winked at the alt-right in Charlottesville? The answer: because you’re supposed to condemn anti-Semitism, you clods. This is peak whataboutism: Trump did something we don’t like, so we’re going to ignore our own side doing the same thing. And it’s worth noting that many on the Right, including me, excoriated Trump for Charlottesville, and for his 2016 flirtation with the alt-right (I earned the coveted Most Targeted Jew Award from the ADL that year for my trouble). Here’s the sad reality: for many on the Left, criticizing anti-Semitism is only worthwhile if you’re doing it in order to slap at perceived political enemies. If the anti-Semitism is coming from perceived allies, better to ignore it. The New York Times admitted as much back in October, when they acknowledged that they had undercovered hate crimes in the city because “bias stemming from longstanding ethnic tensions in the city presents complexities that many liberals have chosen simply to ignore.” In other words, minorities were committing hate crimes against Jews, and that simply wasn’t a story worth covering, since it “refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy.”

 

4. Intersectionality Rules The Day. The only honest excuse we’ve seen thus far comes from House Minority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC), who stated that Omar’s intersectional experiences are simply too important to criticize her for Jew-hatred. Holocaust survivors, their relatives, and Jews generally ought to check their privilege. “There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors,’” Clyburn stated. “‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her. I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”

This, in the end, is the real Democratic excuse: Jews are too financially, educationally, and politically successful to be considered victims of anti-Semitism, particularly when that anti-Semitism comes from those who rank higher on the intersectional hierarchy of victimhood. That’s been the underlying Democratic argument for years at this point. Intersectionality means that Jews are the odd group out, even if they’re still the most targeted group in terms of hate crimes.

The Democrats are banking on their new intersectional coalition. If that means ignoring, downplaying, or outright lying about anti-Semitism, they’re willing to do it. And everyone, particularly American Jews, should take note of that vile but clear fact.

Nancy Pelosi just admitted that Democrats have nothing on Trump

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 17:45

Tens of millions of taxpayer dollars, years of bogus investigations into #GOAT President Trump — all because he won an election. But real criminals — Democrats like the Clintons, Barack Obama, John Podesta, Huma, Ohr, Ocasio-Cortez, John Kerry and Joe Biden’s kids — flout and break the law with impunity, knowing there will be no repercussions. America is sick.

Can Pelosi call off the dogs?

‘Committee Chairmen Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff will keep on subpoenaing away, and grandstanding for the cameras — in hopes of maybe somehow, someday, somewhere finding some genuine dirt, while at least harassing the president, his family and associates and feeding an endless string of breathless this time, Trump is going down reports.’

The jihad caucus — Tlaib, Omar, Cortez — is not taking this well.

Nancy Pelosi just admitted that Democrats have nothing on Trump

By NY Post Editorial Board, March 11, 2019 |

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday that she’s against impeaching President Trump “unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan.” Which is exactly the point — there isn’t.

The speaker is surely up to speed on what evidence Democrats actually have against Trump and has a fair sense of what Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s report will say. And she recognizes that it’s nothing that will persuade anyone who hasn’t wanted Trump ousted since Election Day 2016.

Which means that moving to impeach him would be not just “divisive to the country,” as she says, but also bad for Democrats — since it would show them as unable to resist the most demented demands of their base.

This, when last week’s pathetic failure to confront Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism already exposed them as in thrall to extremists.

Now, will Pelosi call off the dogs? Committee Chairmen Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff will keep on subpoenaing away, and grandstanding for the cameras — in hopes of maybe somehow, someday, somewhere finding some genuine dirt, while at least harassing the president, his family and associates and feeding an endless string of breathless this time, Trump is going down reports.

Just as impeachment would be bad for the Democrats, chances are Americans will note that the press has been blaring those “scoops” for more than two years now, and not a one has panned out. Keeping it up only shows that not just the Democratic Party, but also most of the media, can’t stop themselves from playing to the unhinged left.

There’s Enough Evidence To Justify A Criminal Investigation Into Ocasio-Cortez, Former FEC Commissioner Says

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 17:20

Two years of bogus investigations into President Trump, tens of millions of dollars spent — all because he won an election — but real criminals, Democrats such as the Clintons, Barack Obama, John Podesta, Huma, Ohr, Ocasio-Cortez, John Kerry and Joe Biden’s kids, flout and break the law with impunity, knowing there will be no repercussions. America is sick.

There’s Enough Evidence To Justify A Criminal Investigation Into Ocasio-Cortez, Former FEC Commissioner Says

By: Andrew Kerr | Investigative Reporter, March 11, 2019:

  • Former FEC Commissioner Hans von Spakovsky called for an investigation into alleged campaign finance violations by Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her top aide.
  • “There seems to be enough evidence here to justify opening a criminal investigation,” von Spakovsky wrote in a Fox News op-ed Sunday.
  • Ocasio-Cortez and her top aide Saikat Chakrabarti have since December 2017, controlled the outside PAC credited with being the central force behind her June 2018 primary victory.

A former member of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) called for an investigation Sunday into alleged campaign finance violations by Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her top aide Saikat Chakrabarti.

Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti have, since December 2017, held legal authority over Justice Democrats, the outside PAC credited with orchestrating her upset primary victory over incumbent Democratic New York Rep. Joe Crowley in June 2018, The Daily Caller News Foundation reported last week.

The conservative National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) also filed an FEC complaint last week, first reported by the Washington Examiner, alleging that Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress, another PAC controlled by Chakrabarti, funneled $1 million into two private companies under his control during the 2018 midterms.

“As a former FEC commissioner who has studied the complaint against Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti, I have concluded that there is unquestionably more than enough evidence to justify the FEC opening a civil investigation,” Hans von Spakovsky, now a Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow, wrote in a Fox News op-ed Sunday.

“There seems to be enough evidence here to justify opening a criminal investigation,” he added.

Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed to the FEC that she and Chakrabarti, who served as her campaign chair, controlled Justice Democrats while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign. If the FEC finds that her campaign and the political action committee were operating in affiliation, it could result in her campaign receiving excessive contributions, former FEC commissioner Brad Smith told TheDCNF.

“If someone gave Ocasio-Cortez a $2,700 contribution and then gave another contribution to either of the other two PACS that Ocasio-Cortez and/or Chakrabarti were running, her campaign violated federal law by receiving and keeping a contribution above the legal limit,” von Spakovsky explained.

Ocasio-Cortez called the NLPC’s complaint a “conspiracy theory” propagated by conservative groups looking to receive airtime on Fox News. However, she hasn’t addressed TheDCNF’s reporting surrounding her and Chakrabarti’s “legal control over” Justice Democrats starting in December 2017.

The two continue to serve as “governors” of Justice Democrats, according to the PAC’s business filings in Washington D.C.

Hugh Fitzgerald: Hannah Allam Advises Journalists: Islam Is Unfairly Treated (Part Four)

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 17:00

Editor’s note: Part I here. Part two is here. Part three is here.

The Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, a think tank focused on the American Muslim community, noted in a 2018 report that over 11 percent of New York City’s engineers are Muslim. Thus, it makes sense to include Muslim voices in stories about engineering. Similarly, a large number of Muslims work in medical professions.

Is the author suggesting that the media is unfairly reporting on Muslims? We see Muslim professionals — especially engineers and medical personnel — mentioned frequently, and always positively. Members of the media hardly need to be reminded to do this; they are already, without prompting, presenting Muslims in the best possible light. Think of Khizr Khan, the Pakistani-American father of Humayun Khan, who was killed while serving as an American soldier in Iraq: Khizr Khan is probably the best known father of any serviceman killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. He’s appeared as an honored guess at the Democratic National Convention in 2016, to speak about his son, and to wave a copy of the Constitution by way of reproaching Donald Trump, who presumably needed to be reminded about “the equal protection of the laws” clause. And Khizr Khan has been trotted out on other occasions since, to make the same point: “we Muslims are loyal Americans. And the death of my son proves that.” Actually such anecdotal evidence — a single death — proves nothing. On the subject of Muslim patriotism, you will never find, save at a few islamocritical websites, the information that CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has conducted a campaign to urge Muslims in America not to cooperate with the FBI in their investigations of terrorism. Is that patriotism? And as noted above, Muslims make up 1.1% of the American population, but only 0.4% of the military. Those figures, and what they imply, are nowhere to be found in the mainstream American media. Hannah Allam needn’t worry; the media are doing a superb job of protecting the image of Muslims.

Look at the sanitized coverage of Rashida Tlaib, whose increasingly open antisemitic remarks — now that she’s been elected — and her Palestine-First antics (as wrapping herself in the flag of “Palestine” for her victory speech) have been insufficiently denounced, nor has much been made of her tweeted remark that Israel “does not have a right to exist” and that “Nazis and Zionists are similar.” Ilhan Omar’s antisemitic remarks have, admittedly, received more attention. But for some just as disturbing as her remarks about Israel — such as “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” — were her remarks accusing AIPAC of buying support for Israel by making campaign contributions of “benjamins” (Benjamin Franklin’s face is on the $100 bill) to campaigns; AIPAC does not make political contributions. The scandal involving Omar’s “marriage” to her brother appears to be of little interest, nor has anyone followed up the story of how she declared a false address when she ran for state senator in Minnesota.

Allam suggests that journalists covering anything to do with Islam strive for “diversity in your image choices, too”:

While many resource-constrained newsrooms have a shortage of photographers, it’s important not to rely on stock photos of random women in head coverings. In the interest of avoiding stereotypes, there are many other ways in which Muslims can be represented. “I seldom see pictures like those of my brothers, who served as U.S. Marines,” Allam says.

No doubt Allam would prefer that those photos of new converts to Islam in this country who promptly began plotting mayhem and murder of Infidels be kept out of the media. They might give the wrong impression, that Islam has something to do with Islamic terrorism, just the kind of unfair conclusion that is to be avoided at all costs. So let’s have more photographs of Muslim Marines, like her brothers, and of those Ahmadis, who are fond of sweeping streets and cleaning up parks, while making sure their good-samaritan deeds are fully covered by the press (and there’s no need for the Western media to mention that other Muslims don’t regard Ahmadis as real Muslims, for that would only confuse matters). Other photos should show Muslims distributing food to the poor at food banks, or handing out turkeys at Thanksgiving (even though Muslims are not supposed to observe the Infidel holiday of Thanksgiving), or “praying with their Christian and Jewish brothers” for world peace at some interfaith gathering.

Just keep up the feelgood photos and videos, and eventually many in the pubic will identify Muslims with such behavior. No one will bring up — no one in the mainstream media ever has — the Qur’anic verse that describes non-Muslims as “the most vile of created beings.” Nor would any reporter who wants to keep his job mention, much less quote, the more than 100 verses in the Qur’an that command Muslims to fight against the Unbelievers. It doesn’t matter if that statement is true; it’s “islamophobic” and must be punished. Let’s keep the Qur’an and Hadith out of reports on Islam; there’s so much more to the faith than those texts.

Indeed, Barzegar [Abbas Barzegar, a professor of religious studies] writes about “the so-called ‘unmosqued’ millennials — a younger generation of Muslims who prefer nonprofits and social startups to mosques and minarets,” who can be found in Silicon Valley and Syrian refugee camps — and also on Snapchat.”

The advice here from Ms. Alllam is simple: journalists should pay more attention to those Muslims who are, in her view, the least Islamic, who rarely or never attend the mosque — they are “unmosqued millennials” — and who are at most “cultural Muslims” or “Muslims-for-identification-purposes-only Muslims.” They can integrate into American society precisely because they are not real Believers. Should non-practicing Muslims be considered Muslims at all? Don’t they belong to the increasing number of apostates from Islam who, because of death threats, choose to be vague about their current beliefs, merely stating what can easily be observed, that they no longer attend any mosque.

Hannah Allam need not worry. The American media have long been practicing what she now preaches. American reporters are not “overwhelmingly negative in their portrayal of Islam,” as she insists. Instead, they accentuate the positive at every turn. Muslims are shown as doctors, engineers, professors, lawyers (especially doing splendid work at the A.C.L.U.), contributing to the American economy. Their wives too are shown not as submissive creatures, but instead, seen as finding their own voice, not only being attentive mothers of large broods, but managing as well to set up their own businesses, establish their own careers. Muslim families are presented as soothingly, just like their non-Muslim neighbors; their kids want the same things that non-Muslim kids want, from Lego to Little League.

Muslims are already depicted — relax, Ms. Allam — in all their “diversity” of clothing and, especially, cuisine. The implication that Muslims also differ in their “beliefs” is allowed to hang in the air. Having established that Muslims are “diverse” — look at how they dress, look at what they eat — the reporters feel no need to explain how, aside from the Sunni-Shi’a split, their beliefs differ. The differences among Sunni Muslims, who make up 85-90% of the world’s Muslims, are not as great as Hannah Allam would have you believe, more a matter of fervor than of faith. Fearing that generalizations about Muslims are likely to lead to a closer look at the texts all Muslims share, Allam has a stake in preventing any generalizations about Muslims being made.

Reporters have not focused only on those Muslims who attend the mosque regularly, as Allam worries they might. They are eager to report on a wide variety of Muslims, those who were born into the faith and those who have converted, those who are deeply devout and those who express doubts, those who come from any one of the more than 50 Muslim-majority  countries. Mostly these reporters are looking for feelgood stories, demonstrating just how much like other Americans these Muslim Americans already are, or eventually turn out to be. Hannah Allam should take a closer look at how Islam in America is covered; she would be pleasantly surprised.

Jihad-Rep Ilhan Omar thanks FOX News for supporting her Jew-hatred and Anti-Americanism

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 15:42

The quislings at FOX, like the establishment right, have been moving left for some time. Whereas the left circles the wagons when one of their own is under fire (no matter how egregious the crime), the right assembles a circular firing squad and eats their own. Every effective counter jihad voice on the right has been abandoned and shunned by the right. I should know. Shame on FOX – the last thing American needs is another bloody leftwing news channel.

Omar thanks Fox News for publicly condemning Pirro

By Joe Concha, The Hill, March 11, 2019:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) thanked Fox News on Monday after the network condemned host Jeanine Pirro for remarks suggesting the first-term lawmaker’s Islamic beliefs put her at odds with the Constitution.

“Thank you, @FoxNews,” Omar tweeted to her more than 720,000 followers. “No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.”

Pirro had argued on her weekly Fox News program, “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” that Omar is not committed to upholding the Constitution due to her religious beliefs and because she wears a hijab, an Islamic headscarf.

“Think about it: Omar wears a hijab,” Pirro said during her opening monologue Saturday night. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Fox News followed with a statement the next day condemning Pirro’s remarks.

“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network said. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Criticism from within Fox News also came from a Muslim producer who works on Bret Baier’s “Special Report” program.

“@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough?” tweeted Hufsa Kamal Khan.

“You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself,” she tweeted. “K thx.”

Pirro in her own statement pushed back on the criticism and attempted to clarify her comments.

“I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American,” Pirro said. “My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution.”

Pirro added that she invites Omar “to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

Omar, 37, has drawn criticism from Republicans and members of her own party for what have been deemed by many as anti-Semitic remarks regarding Israel and the U.S. lawmakers who support the Jewish state.

On Thursday, the House passed a bill condemning hate. The bill was prompted largely by Omar’s comments since taking office but the bill did not specifically name the congresswoman.

Islamic Republic of Mauritania: Parliament rejects laws stiffening penalties for violence against women

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 14:00

This is the reality of women’s rights in Islam, beyond all the hype and deception from Linda Sarsour and her Women’s March “feminist” allies. Islam codifies violence against women, sanctioning the beating of disobedient women in the Quran (4:34). That makes it impossible for Islamic states such as Mauritania to criminalize violence against women. To do so would be un-Islamic. And so we have the paradoxical situation that criminalizing violence against women is “islamophobic” in Islamic states, and discussing Islamic misogyny is “islamophobic” in the West. Madness.

“In conservative Mauritania, confronting sexual violence laws,” AFP, March 7, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Feminists in Mauritania are fighting an uphill battle to see tougher penalties for sexual violence and discrimination in a conservative state where criminal law is derived from Sharia.

“Few survivors of sexual assault dare to speak out in Mauritania,” Human Rights Watch said in a report last September.

It blasted “a dysfunctional system that discourages victims from pressing charges (and) can lead to re-traumatisation or punishment.”

Women’s groups have helped to draft legislation to combat gender-based violence, calling for stiffer penalties for rape, criminalisation of sexual harassment and the creation of specific courts to handle sexual violence.

But the bill has been twice rejected by parliament, despite efforts to craft text which is within the confines of Sharia law — for example, extra-marital sex would remain a crime.

Lawmakers objected to provisions allowing women to travel without their husbands’ permission, and permitting victim support groups to file civil suits.

Spearheading the struggle for change is the Association of Women Heads of Family (AFCF), whose president Aminetou El Moctar told AFP: “We need this law, because we know violence against women is soaring” — although statistics on the scourge are seriously lacking.

At AFCF’s offices, Zahra (not her real name), related how a neighbour snatched her five-year-old daughter from her home while she was sleeping, and then raped the girl.

Because of the girl’s young age and the fact that the rapist was a serial paedophile, he was quickly convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

But AFCF says that in Mauritania, convicted rapists rarely serve out their sentences.

“He will probably do a year at most,” said Mariem, a case worker. “After that he’ll be able to pay bail and get out on parole. Then, when there’s a general amnesty, he’ll benefit from it.”…

Canada: Pro- “Palestinian” Jewicidal Leftist Activist Give Speech on “Legacy” of Ayatollah Khomeini

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 13:00

First it was J Street, the ADL, and the British Jewish leadership. In Canada, it was Bernie Farber, and now it’s also Ken Stone of Independent Jewish Voices. The Jewish people have been plagued by these anti-Jews since Moses went up Mount Sinai for the giving of the Torah to Israel and anti-Jews were below building a golden calf. These are not Jewish groups, but anti-Jewish groups, which, when they are not attacking Jews, are calling for a kristallnacht against the tiny Jewish state. If Stone can support a vicious Jew-hater such as the Ayatollah Khomeini, he is implicitly joining him in wanting to alienate and cut Israel off from the rest of the world, and ultimately to destroy the Jewish state altogether.

“Pro-Palestinian Canadian Jewish Activist’s Speech on the Legacy of Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini,” by Jonathan Halevi, Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, March 6, 2019:

Ken Stone is a founding member of Independent Jewish Voices (IJV), IJV-Hamilton member, Hamilton Mountain NDP (New Democratic Party) member and the treasurer of the Hamilton Coalition To Stop The War. Stone was a speaker in al-Quds Day rallies held in Toronto in 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2013 and 2012.

On May 13, 2016, Ken Stone was a keynote speaker at an event, organized by the Islamic Society of York Region, commemorating the 27th anniversary of Imam Khomeini’s death. The event was entitled “Imam Khomeini – Liberator and Reformer of the Masses.”

Excerpts from Ken Stone’s speech , May 13, 2016.
Moderator: “Our keynote speaker for today is a champion of human rights who stood up against racism and Zionism for over four decades. As someone who lost many family members in Poland and Russia during the reign of Hitler, Ken Stone vowed to always stand up against racism and against Israel positioning itself as a representative of Jewish people. I would like to request Mr. Ken Stone to please come on the stage to share his thoughts.”

Ken Stone: “Good evening brothers and sisters. It’s a great pleasure to have been invited here to the Islamic Society of York region and to add my voice to all those voices raised in appreciation of the legacy of the Ayatollah Khomeini.

“I have four things to say. The first one is I appreciate his contribution to the support of the Palestinian people. Ayatollah Khomeini strongly condemned Zionism, and he strongly supported the rights of the Palestinian people.

“He made a famous statement and I quote: ‘The regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the pages of time. This statement was mistranslated purposely by the Zionists and the Western media to say that Iran believes that all the Jewish immigrants to Palestine should be thrown in the sea, that this Israel should be wiped off the map. All those statements were lies. All those statements were lies, brothers and sisters.’

“What the Ayatollah meant, and correctly meant, was that the criminal regime, the criminal Zionist regime in Jerusalem had to be disposed in the same way that the criminal apartheid regime in Johannesburg had to be disposed of, and it was done so in South Africa without any bloodshed. The regime and the Soviet Union disappeared from the pages of time, again without bloodshed, and so what the Ayatollah Khomeini was saying was that the government, that the apartheid system, that the Zionist colonial project in Palestine had to end and he was absolutely right in doing so.

“Not only did he say that, but he changed, his revolution changed Iranian foreign policy. He turned it on its head. Previously the Shah of Iran was an American stooge. He was an ally of the Zionist state, the state of Israel. In fact, Iran was one of the three pillars of American foreign policy, of the empire in the Middle East: Iran, the state of Israel, Saudi Arabia. The Ayatollah Khomeini changed all that. He changed the way that even the religion is practiced around the world of Islam.

“I look around the room here today, and I see friendly faces. I see in the summer every year the third Saturday I think it is of Ramadan. I see Zafar [Bangash]. I see Munir, Siraj, a lot of friendly faces that I meet behind Queen’s Park every year when we march on Al-Quds Day. And I understand people march now in 60 or 70 cities around the world. This is a legacy of the Ayatollah Khomeini.

“As I said he changed foreign policy. One of the things that I personally experienced in the changing of the Iranian foreign policy is that I attended the Fifth International Parliamentary Conference on the Palestinian Intifada. I was the only Canadian who went, and when I arrived in the hall, which I believe was the former parliament building, there were just as there is here in this mosque today, a big portrait of Ayatollah Khamenei on one side, and the other side a big portrait of Ayatollah Khomeini.

“To open the conference, Ayatollah Khamenei took the stand, and I want to read you just a few words of what he had to say that day about Palestine.

“He said:

‘Among all the issues that deserve to be discussed by religious and political figures from across the world of Islam, the issue of Palestine enjoys special prominence. Palestine is the primary issue among all common issues of Islamic countries. This issue has unique characteristics.

‘The first characteristic is that a Muslim country has been taken away from its people and entrusted to foreigners who have come together from different countries to form a fake and Mosaic society. The second characteristic is that this historically unprecedented event has been accompanied by constant killings, crimes, oppression, and humiliation. The third characteristic is that the Muslims first Qibla [direction of prayer] and many respected religious centers which exist in that country have been threatened with destruction sacrilege and decline. The fourth characteristic is that the most sensitive spot of the world of Islam, this fake government and society has played the role of a military security and political base for the arrogant states.’…..

ISIS jihadi returned to Sweden to treat war wounds, with health care paid for by taxpayers

Tue, 03/12/2019 - 12:00

What hope can there be for Sweden when the fools in power allow Islamic State (ISIS) jihadis to return from the Middle East to Sweden for free health care, and then go back to the jihad? Those who made this decision must know little, or care little, about the activities of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. How else can you explain the Swedish government’s fond hope of reintegrating the jihadis who mercilessly raped, beheaded and massacred their way from one end of the former ISIS domains to the other? The unfortunate Swedes are in for a rude awakening. Returning ISIS fighters should be tried before a military tribunal and then shot.

“Isis jihadi ‘returned to Sweden to treat war wounds,'” The Local, March 1, 2019:

An Isis jihadi fighter returned to his home in Sweden to have wounds to his shoulder treated for free at a state-run hospital, before returning to the front line in Syria, Sweden’s Expressen newspaper has reported.

Khaled Shahadeh, 28, returned to Sweden in 2015 for medical care before returning to Syria that summer, his father told the newspaper, a claim the newspaper has confirmed by other sources.

Shahadeh is one of four Isis members from Gothenburg and the nearby city of Borås judged as a continuing threat to Sweden, alongside the convert Michael Skråmo, Nader el Shaya, and Mohamud Saeed Adib.

Thomas Lindén, chairman of the ethics advisory panel at Sweden’s Läkarförbund doctors’ union, said it was wrong to expect doctors to consider anything apart medical needs when deciding who to treat.

“We don’t judge people. We provide care according to the medical need and without looking at what a person is or what they have done,” he told the newspaper.

“We give care to rich and poor, to murderers and people sitting in prison. If people need to be punished, there are other parts of society that can do it. Healthcare should not become part of the apparatus of punishment.”…

‘Palestinians” use International Women’s Day to promote female jihadists

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 23:49

More barbarity from the Palestinians. These are just the kind of folks who should have a state. The fact that the Democrat Party is so aligned with the Palestinians should be disturbing to every rational American.

International Women's Day

PA uses international women's day to promote terrorism:Video: Palestinian Media Watch

Posted by StandWithUs on Monday, March 11, 2019

 

“Palestinian Authority uses International Women’s Day to celebrate female terrorists,” by Ilanit Chernick, Jerusalem Post, March 11, 2018.

Palestinian Authority TV has used International Woman’s Day as a cover to glorify and celebrate female terrorists and female terrorism.

In a report highlighted by Palestinian Media Watch, PA TV broadcasted an interview with the Director of the Palestinian Women’s Union in Gaza, Amal Hamad.

In the interview Hamad spoke about the “Palestinian national struggle” and the role women have played in terrorism.

“We have had female Martyrs, wounded, and prisoners,” she said, explaining that women were the first to take part in “the battle.”

“That is why we also have female Martyrs,” she said naming several well-known terrorists including Shadia Abu Ghazaleh, a terrorist who prepared bombs for terror attacks; Dalal Mughrabi, terrorist who led murder of 38 people in 1978, 12 of whom were children; Wafa Idris, who was the first female suicide bomber; Ayyat Al-Akhras, who was the youngest female suicide bomber who killed two people; and Darin Abu Aisheh, a female suicide bomber who wounded three people.

GOP leader accuses Dems of ‘enabling anti-Semitism’ by defending Ilhan Omar” [NY Post]

“A top GOP House leader accused Democrats of trying to “protect” Rep. Ilhan Omar and “enabling anti-Semitism” by failing to single out her anti-Israel comments on the House floor.

“I think it was really clearly an effort to actually protect Ilhan Omar,” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “To cover up her bigotry and anti-Semitism by refusing to name her. The Democrats have yet to take any action to remove her from her committee. And they’ve got a real problem.”  [NY Post]

[Facebook] JDL (Jewish Defense League)

Anti-Semitic attacks have dramatically increased New York City. A synagogue’s window was shattered during Shabbat in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn. Jews are being physically attacked all across Brooklyn. Swastikas defacing property have been found in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.

Across the the US, synagogues and Jewish community centers have seen their property defaced and/or received threats of violence.

In the Capitol of the United States of America, there are elected officials with strong ties to anti-Semitic groups. These same elected officials do not hide their support for the BDS movement.

The most horrific anti-Semitic attack to occur on United States soil was in October 2018 at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. Eleven Jews were murdered and seven injured.

Across Europe Jews are being beaten and murdered; kosher stores are defaced and Jewish tombstones smashed. THIS MUST STOP!

Jihad Jew-hater Rashida Tlaib: There’s Islamophobia in the Democratic Party

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 22:30

In other words, Jews  and Christians who won’t submit.

The very word “Islamophobia” is a fictional construct, as journalist Claire Berlinski explains: “The neologism ‘Islamophobia’ did not simply emerge ex nihilo. It was invented, deliberately, by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought, which is based in Northern Virginia….Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the IIIT who has renounced the group in disgust, was an eyewitness to the creation of the word. ‘This loathsome term,’ he writes, ‘is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.’

The term “Islamophobia” was designed specifically for the Western mindset of liberal white guilt, stealing the “civil rights” narrative from black Americans and mining the “oppression” Native Americans – even throwing in the specter of the Japanese internment camps during World War II. These are the clubs Islamic supremacists in the West use to beat down their opponents. Islamophobia is the knee-jerk smear thrown at anyone who dares to speak out or push back against the encroaching Sharia, the appeasement of Islamic supremacists demands on the secular marketplace, and the restriction of free speech.

In reality, “Islamophobia” is nothing more than a term that Islamic supremacists use to enforce what they can of Islamic blasphemy laws in the West: in Islamic law, to defame or insult Muhammad or Islam is blasphemy, and in many Muslim countries it’s punishable by death. There are daily reports of death sentences handed down in Muslim countries for perceived insults to Muhammad or Islam.

Tlaib: There’s Islamophobia in the Democratic Party

Islamophobia is “very much” a part of the Democratic and Republican parties, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) said in an interview that aired Sunday.
Tlaib said on Showtime’s “The Circus” that anti-Muslim bias played a big role in last week’s controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
“I know this would be somewhat shocking for some, but I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party,” said Tlaib. She and Omar are the first Muslim women elected to Congress.
“And I know that’s hard for people to hear, but there’s only been four members of Congress that are of Muslim faith. Three of them currently serve in this institution,” Tlaib said.
“So you think Democrats have some Islamophobia and that’s at the root of some of this consternation?” interviewer Alex Wagner asked in response.
“I think our country’s struggling with it,” Tlaib replied.
Omar came under harsh criticism from other Democrats after she made remarks widely seen as invoking an anti-Semitic dual loyalty trope that accuses Jewish people of being more loyal to Israel than the United States.
It sparked calls for a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, which Democrats began drafting at the beginning of last week. But by the week’s end, after complaints from other members including progressives and lawmakers in the Congressional Black Caucus, the resolution was rewritten to also condemn many other forms of hate, including Islamophobia.
Some Jewish lawmakers were upset with the final resolution, believing it would have been better to focus on a measure simply condemning anti-Semitism. Omar at a Washington forum had said that that pro-Israel advocates “push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
The House adopted the final resolution on Thursday with the support of all Democrats, while 23 Republicans voted against it in protest that it didn’t focus on anti-Semitism in response to Omar.
Omar has stood by her remarks.
Both Tlaib and Omar have faced accusations of anti-Semitism from Republicans over their support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, which is critical of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. Tlaib is also the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress, in addition to being one of the first Muslim women in the institution.
“I feel like Ilhan and I both have been unfairly targeted. I think there have been double standards,” Tlaib said.
Rep. André Carson (D-Ind.) is the only other Muslim lawmaker in Congress. Former Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), who previously held the seat Omar now holds, was the first Muslim elected to Congress in 2006.
Tlaib said in the interview that she was pleased the resolution condemning hate made a nod to Islamophobia.
“Of course I had mixed feelings beforehand. But the fact that we ended up with a resolution that talked about all forms of hate, including anti-Muslim hate, in our country, you know, it felt good. Being one of only three members among 435, I felt a sense of being seen, even for that moment,” Tlaib said.

DESPICABLE: Democrat Rep. Clyburn defends Jihadi Ilhan Omar’s Jew-hatred by elevating her ‘pain’ above Holocaust survivors

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 21:53

Naturally there will be no condemnation from the Democrat Party for this despicable remark by Rep. Clyburn. This is just another example of why no Jewish American with a brain or with dignity should support the neo-Nazi Democrat Party in any way.

“Rep. Clyburn Spits on Holocaust Survivors in Defense of Anti-Semitic Rep. Omar,” The Yeshiva World, March 7, 2019:

Rep. James Clyburn (S.C.), the Democratic whip and a prominent member of the Congressional Black Caucus, made some appalling remarks in an interview with The Hill on Wednesday.

The following are excerpts from The Hill article:

Clyburn came to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States.

Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World War II and the other violent episodes that have marked history.

This is disgusting @WhipClyburn, spitting on graves, making light of the Holocaust & minimizing its massive importance/impact on victims' families & the world. 6 MILLION Jews & MILLIONS of others were MURDERED! #NeverForget pic.twitter.com/LabEqwKOWD

Philly Mosque Apologizes for Call to Impose “Islam Upon On The World”

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 20:22

A war doctrine cloaked in “religion.”

Philly Mosque Apologizes for Call to Impose “Islam Upon On The World.”

By: Daniel Greenfield March 11, 2019

Sorry, my mistake.

The mosque is instead launching an investigation to understand why it kept inviting an Imam to spew hatred against Jews and everyone else.

I can’t wait for the investigation’s result sometime in 2088. But it’s good enough for the media and the ADL.

Al Aqsa Islamic Society said it was “shocked and outraged” by what it called a guest speaker’s “reprehensible anti-Jewish remarks,” vowing to “make sure that this never happens again.”

“We expect that all guest speakers will respect and uphold our policy that hatred against any group of people or religion will not be tolerated,” the society said in a statement attributed to board of trustees secretary Chukri Khorchid and Imam Mohamed Shehata.

The Anti-Defamation League in Philadelphia said in a statement that Al Aqsa Society leaders assured them they launched an investigation and that “hate against Jews or any group” would not be tolerated.

“We are grateful for Al Aqsa’s rapid and resolute response, and we will continue to serve as a resource to the mosque as they work to combat anti-Semitism,” the statement said.

The only reason that the ADL doesn’t count as a joke is because jokes are funny.

Does anyone really believe that the Al Aqsa Islamic Society was unaware of what being said?

Imam Abdelmohsen Abouhatab, who is of Egyptian origin, delivered several antisemitic sermons at the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society in Philadelphia, PA between November 2018 and February 2019. On February 15, 2019, he said that the Jews are the vilest people in terms of their nature and moral values and that the “nefarious” Jewish media causes people to see the Muslim as an “oppressive and predatory lion.”

It’s okay. Four out of Eleven 2020 Dem hopefuls agree.

On November 16, 2018, Imam Abouhatab said that an Israeli prime minister had once been asked about the hadith about the rocks and the trees calling to Muslims to kill the Jews hiding behind them, and that he had answered: “The hadith is true, but we are doing our best to prevent this.”

While Abouhatab was not introduced by name in the sermons, a mosque official said at the conclusion of one of them: “We thank Abdelmohsen Abouhatab for his wonderful sermon.” The videos were live streamed on the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society’s YouTube channel

They had no idea. Not a single clue.

The mosque has worked with the mayor of Philadelphia, the FBI, the ADL, and law enforcement

Of course it has.

Following a December 2015 incident in which a severed pig’s head was found outside the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society building, sparking a police and FBI investigation, then-Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, City Council members, and interfaith leaders met at City Hall to speak against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign statements about Muslims; Mayor Nutter called Trump “an a**hole.” Al-Aqsa Imam Mohamed Shehata,  spoke at the meeting about the peaceful nature of Islam and of Muslims coming together with individuals of all religions in a peaceful community.

And then imposing Islam on the entire world.

Imam Abdelmohsen Abouhatab: “Allah sent down the best divine books to the Arab race. He sent them the best messengers, and He gave them customs and moral values that you cannot find in any other race: the [Arabs] are courageous, dignified, and noble.

“By Allah, if faith had taken root in our hearts, things would have been different. We would have imposed the word of Islam upon the world, like those before us did.”

A peaceful community indeed.

Islamic Justice: Nine women protesters get 20 lashes each in Sudan

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 19:33

The Islamic Republic of the Sudan is doling out sharia justice as America’s left stands in solidarity with these monsters. “Islam empowers women.” A Sudanese emergency court sentenced 9 Sudanese women to 20 lashes and a month in prison for participating in an unauthorized demonstration.

Sudanese protest in Khartoum’s twin city of Omdurman on Sunday against war criminal President Omar al-Bashir’s rule.

Nine Sudan women protesters get 20 lashes each

International News, March 11, 2019:

KHARTOUM: A Sudanese emergency court on Saturday sentenced nine women protesters to 20 lashes each for participating in an unauthorised demonstration against President Omar al-Bashir’s rule, defence lawyers said.

The ruling by the Khartoum court came despite Bashir on Friday ordering the release of all female detainees held during nationwide demonstrations that have rocked the country since December. The authorities have set up special emergency courts to investigate violations of a nationwide state of emergency imposed by Bashir on February 22 to end the demonstrations after an initial crackdown failed to suppress the protest movement.

The nine women protesters were taken to court after they were arrested on Thursday for participating in a “banned demonstration” earlier that day in the capital’s eastern district of Burri, a site of regular protests. “Nine women protesters have been sentenced to one month jail and 20 lashes,” defence lawyer Enaam Atieg told AFP.

“They have been taken to women´s prison in Omdurman,” she said, referring to the twin city of the capital across the Nile. Atieg said an appeal against the court´s verdict will be filed on Sunday.

A lawyers´ group that is part of the protest movement also confirmed the sentencing. “Following pressure from their lawyers the court has still not implemented the floggings,” the Democratic Lawyers Alliance said in a statement.

Activists and rights groups have regularly complained about Sudan´s selective application of Islamic sharia law, with hundreds of women sentenced to flogging under a controversial public order law.

Saturday´s ruling was not the first against protesters since special emergency courts were established. Eight men accused of participating in a rally were handed jail terms ranging from six months to five years on March 1 in the first such penalties by the special courts.

SHARIA JUSTICE: Shocking 33-year prison term and 148 lashes for women’s rights defender Nasrin Sotoudeh

Iran: Shocking 33-year prison term and 148 lashes for women’s rights defender Nasrin Sotoudeh

Amnesty, 11 March 2019:

The sentencing of prominent Iranian human rights lawyer and women’s rights defender Nasrin Sotoudeh to 33 years in prison and 148 lashes in a new case against her is an outrageous injustice, said Amnesty International today.

The sentence, reported on her husband Reza Khandan’s Facebook page on 11 March, brings her total sentence after two grossly unfair trials to 38 years in prison. In September 2016, she had been sentenced in her absence to five years in prison in a separate case.

“It is absolutely shocking that Nasrin Sotoudeh is facing nearly four decades in jail and 148 lashes for her peaceful human rights work, including her defence of women protesting against Iran’s degrading forced hijab (veiling) laws. Nasrin Sotoudeh must be released immediately and unconditionally and this obscene sentence quashed without delay,” said Philip Luther, Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Research and Advocacy Director.

“Nasrin Sotoudeh has dedicated her life to defending women’s rights and speaking out against the death penalty – it is utterly outrageous that Iran’s authorities are punishing her for her human rights work. Her conviction and sentence consolidate Iran’s reputation as a cruel oppressor of women’s rights.”

This is the harshest sentence Amnesty International has documented against a human rights defender in Iran in recent years, suggesting that the authorities – emboldened by pervasive impunity for human rights violations – are stepping up their repression.

Nasrin Sotoudeh was arrested at her home on 13 June 2018. This week, she was informed by the office for the implementation of sentences in Tehran’s Evin prison where she is jailed that she had been convicted on seven charges and sentenced to 33 years in prison and 148 lashes. The charges, which are in response to her peaceful human rights work, include “inciting corruption and prostitution”, “openly committing a sinful act by… appearing in public without a hijab” and “disrupting public order”.

During her sentencing, Article 134 of Iran’s Penal Code was applied, which allows judges to use their discretion to impose a higher sentence than the maximum statutory requirement when a defendant faces more than three charges. In Nasrin Sotoudeh’s case, the judge, Mohammad Moghiseh, applied the maximum statutory sentence for each of her seven charges and then added another four years to her total prison term, raising it from the statutory maximum of 29 to 33 years.

“Jailing a human rights defender for her peaceful activities is abhorrent but the fact that the judge in Nasrin Sotoudeh’s case used his discretion to ensure that she stays locked up for more than is required under Iranian law compounds the outrageous injustice of her sentence,” said Philip Luther.

“Governments with influence over Iran should use their power to push for Nasrin Sotoudeh’s release. The international community, notably the European Union, which has an ongoing dialogue with Iran, must take a strong public stand against this disgraceful conviction and urgently intervene to ensure that she is released immediately and unconditionally.”

Today, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported that judge Mohammad Moghiseh told journalists that Nasrin Sotoudeh has been sentenced to seven years in prison: five years for “gathering and colluding to commit crimes against national security” and two years for “insulting the Supreme Leader”. The report did not provide further details or clarify whether the judge was referring to a separate case. If the report was referring to the same case, Amnesty International cannot currently explain why the information appears to contradict that provided to Nasrin Sotoudeh by the office for the implementation of sentences in Evin prison.

U.S multinational completes massive purchase of Israeli company, handing another defeat to the Boycott-the-Jews (BDS) movement

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 18:30

Despite horrific levels of anti-Semitism, the rise of the BDS movement, and the treachery of the Jewish left, Israel is flourishing like never before. Unlike pre-Holocaust times, proud Jews can fight back, and that is made possible by the strong Jewish state of Israel.

Every year, tens of billions of dollars are invested in Israeli technology from countries around the globe. Every few weeks, different multinational corporations are announcing that they are setting up R&D facilities in Israel. Heads of state and government officials are coming to Israel in record numbers to reap the benefits of Israeli innovation.

Today it was reported that a U.S multinational purchased an Israeli company for just under 7 billion dollars. In addition, Israel is leading the way in every area of technology, dominating the leading industries of today and tomorrow.

The greatest weapon against the BDS Movement is Israeli technology. Israel must never depend on America’s inept Jewish leaders (or anyone else) for its survival.

“Nvidia to acquire Mellanox for $6.9 billion,” by Lilach Baumer, Calcalist, March 11, 2019:

Nvidia Corporation is set to acquire Israeli chipmaker Mellanox Technologies Ltd. for $6.9 billion, the companies announced Monday. As per the companies’ agreement, Nvidia will acquire Mellanox’ issued and outstanding common stocks for $125 per share in cash, adding up to a total enterprise value of approximately $6.9 billion.

“AI Companies Accounted for 37 percent of Israeli tech companies in 2018,” CTech, March 11, 2019:

By the end of 2018, 1,150 Israeli start-ups were making use of artificial intelligence technologies, according to a report released Monday by Start-Up Nation Central, a Tel Aviv-based non-profit managing a database of Israeli tech companies. The report includes companies developing core AI technologies as well as companies utilizing AI for products and services.

According to the report, AI companies, amounting to 17% of all Israeli tech companies, were responsible for raising $2.25 billion in 2018, 37% of the total capital raised by tech start-ups in the country.

Israeli Politician to Fmr Palestinian Spox: ‘What Did You Bring to the World Beyond Suicide Terrorists?

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 18:00

Indeed. Pope Benedict XVI said as much when he quoted a 14th-century dialogue between the Byzantine emperor, Manuel II Paleologos, and a Muslim scholar and unleashed a worldwide jihad (because that’s what they do). In a passage on the concept of holy war, Benedict recited a passage of what he called “startling brusqueness,” in which Manuel questioned the teachings of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached,” Benedict quoted the emperor as saying.

It was true then, it’s true now.

Israeli Politician to Fmr Palestinian Spox: ‘What Did You Bring to the World Beyond Suicide Terrorists?’

Israeli politician Naftali Bennett challenged Palestinian adviser Dianna Buttu in a debate hosted by the BBC that aired Sunday, “What did you bring to the world beyond suicide terrorists? What is your invention?”

By Breitbart News, March 11, 2019:

Bennett, a successful high-tech entrepreneur who leads Israel’s New Right party, was responding to Buttu’s endorsement of the “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions” (BDS) movement, which seeks to isolate Israel — and which critics call antisemitic, since it singles out the Jewish state alone among the various nations in the Middle East.

Critics of BDS often point out that any boycott would be futile because of the many ways in which the rest of the world depends on Israeli innovations and exports — including Internet technology, pharmaceuticals, water management, and agricultural goods.

Bennett replied:

It seems that the Palestinians have spent the past 71 years victimizing themselves. They’ve fallen in love with it. So they bequeath it to their children, their grandchildren, great-grandchildren. You know, the Jews had the greatest tragedy in world history, the Shoah [Holocaust], but we didn’t whine for 70 years. We built an amazing and remarkable country.

Now you can go ahead and BDS us — you just won’t be able to wake up in the morning, because the chip is built in Intel in Israel, and on your way to work you’ll get lost because of Waze, and the tomato you’ll try and use is a cherry tomato invented in Israel. What did you bring to the world beyond suicide terrorists? What’s your invention?

Buttu had no response to that question, but said: “You know, I think that it’s very important for you to recognize one thing: the land that you’re sitting on, the place that that you claim that all these wonderful things … was built on my land, on Palestinian land.”

Bennett replied that the Palestinian people itself was an invention: “There was no Palestinian people. It’s a new invention.”

Newsrooms that went wild when KKK Grand Wizard David Duke endorsed President Trump, Laura Ingraham, etc. suddenly silent when he did the same for Rep. Omar

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 17:30

KKK grand wizard endorsed Jew-hater Ilhan Omar as “the most important member of the U.S.Congress.”

The silence in newsrooms across the country is deafening. The enemedia was relentless in demanding that President Trump disavow David Duke. President Trump has proven to be the most pro-Israel President since the founding of the modern State of Israel. Will the enemedia now demand that top Democrats disavow Duke? Not a chance, despite the fact that the left’s Jew-hatred is increasingly flagrant and unapologetic. By capitulating to Ilhan Omar, the Democrats have now normalized and mainstreamed Jew-hatred, and we will be seeing a great deal more of it from their ranks — not just from Omar but from Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and others.

Newsrooms that went wild when David Duke endorsed Laura Ingraham suddenly silent when he did the same for Rep. Omar

Becket Adams | The Washington Examiner March 11, 2019:

Weirdly enough, these exact same newsrooms have yet to report on the former grand wizard’s full-throated endorsement of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s, D-Minn., attacks on Israel and American Jews.

How strange!

In 2018, Ingraham claimed the “America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore” because immigrants have dramatically altered longstanding racial demographics. Duke was jazzed to hear her say this.

“One of the most important (truthful) monologues in the history of [mainstream media],” the former Klansman wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

Newsrooms were quick to cover his tweet, with many of them going so far as to suggest (either explicitly or implicitly) that Duke’s endorsement of Ingraham’s monologue is proof of her bigotry.

“Laura Ingraham’s Anti-Immigrant Rant Was So Racist It Was Endorsed by Ex-KKK Leader David Duke,” the Daily Beast reported.

Business Insider reported of the fallout, “’My commentary had nothing to do with race’: Laura Ingraham disavows white-nationalist support after controversial segment on immigration.”

“Laura Ingraham’s Walkback of Her David Duke-Approved Monologue Completely Missed the Point,” read a headline published by Esquire.

The Huffington Post got in on the action with a series of report and op-eds, including one titled, “Laura Ingraham Is Mainstreaming White Supremacy, But She’s Not Alone.”

The Associated Press reported that Duke had endorsed Ingraham. Politico’s morning rundown reported that Duke had endorsed Ingraham. The list goes on.

Many of these same newsrooms have also covered Duke’s kind words for President Trump. Their coverage of his pro-Trump remarks has similarily implied (or declared outright) that the former Grand Wizard’s support is proof of the president’s racism.

But then came Omar came along. Suddenly, a Duke endorsement is a non-story.

Last Thursday, as the Minnesota congresswoman avoided a formal rebuke from her party despite engaging in several clearly anti-Semitic tropes, Duke tweeted, “By Defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!

“ZOG” is his abbreviation for “Zionist Occupation Government,” which is his own cute term for “federal government.” Don’t ask me. Your guess is as good as mine.

Duke also tweeted, “Simply stated, [Omar] is important because the dared expose the gorilla in Congress that nobody dares speak! There is no salvation of our people heritage, rights and freedom until ZOG is overthrown!”

He added elsewhere that Omar shows real potential for “ building partial coalitions.”

It has been four days since Duke backed the congresswoman. Not a single one of the newsrooms that rushed last year to cover his endorsement of a right-wing cable news host has reported his similarly enthusiastic support for a progressive lawmaker.

As of Monday morning, the Daily Beast has published nothing on Duke’s praise for Omar. Neither has the AP, the Huffington Post, Politico, Esquire, Business Insider, or Talking Points Memo. Surely, these newsrooms don’t believe Duke endorsing a right-wing cable host deserves coverage, while his support for a sitting member of the U.S. House of Representatives deserves none. What is the explanation, then, for the disparity in coverage? The answer seems obvious. Certain news organizations are willing to contradict their own news judgment in service of protecting a progressive congresswoman.

The reporters and editors who flooded the zone last year with Ingraham stories likely never considered their arguments against a Fox News host could also be used against a Democratic lawmaker. They thought it was safe to report on Duke’s Ingraham remarks, suggesting all the while that his support is proof of her racism. But now Duke has praised Omar and the same people who reported last year that his endorsement is proof of guilt are finding themselves in an awkward position. They have to pretend either that Duke didn’t endorse Omar, or that it’s not a newsworthy event compared to his support of Ingraham. “Ignorant or lying” isn’t a great look for a supposedly serious news organization.

So, how about this: Instead of doing this dance every time Duke resurfaces from whatever bog he’s haunting to endorse either a conservative or a liberal lawmaker, we all agree to never speak of him again.

We’ll be better off for it. Trust me.
