The Democrat Party: The New Anti-Semitism Party

Warren, Booker, Gillibrand — it’s not them — it’s the party. It’s not possible to be on the left today and support Israel. You have to support the “Palestinian” jihad, and turn a blind eye to the savage murder of innocent civilians, including families eating Shabbat dinner and sleeping in their beds. The Democrats: the New Evil Party.

“Elizabeth Warren Comes Out Against Senate’s Anti-BDS Bill,” by David Colon, Gothamist, August 8, 2017:

As debate continues to rage over the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, and one rumored 2020 presidential candidate distances herself from it, another prominent Democrat and rumored presidential candidate has come out against it as well. Senator Elizabeth Warren announced her opposition to the bill this week, calling it a violation of free speech.

Warren, who was never a sponsor of the bill, was asked about it by a constituent at a town hall last night. In response, she said that while she disagreed with BDS, she also said that “outlawing free speech-protected activity violates our basic constitution.”

The bill is an addition to the Export Act of 1979, which criminalized a company knowingly joining the Arab League boycott of Israel. This addition would update the bill to criminalize US companies from joining on to boycotts of US allies called for by intergovernmental organizations such as the United Nations or the European Union. Violations could be punishable by up to $1 million in fines and 20 years in prison.

Besides Warren, other Democratic Senators are feeling the heat regarding the bill as well. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon was confronted by constituents this past weekend who questioned why he supported the bill. Wyden argues that the bill simply updates the previous 1979 law targeting the Arab League boycott of Israel, and that no one has been imprisoned for violating that.

While supporters of the law like Wyden and Chuck Schumer claim that the bill doesn’t infringe on free speech, a critic of the bill suggests that it still does, even if it doesn’t punish individuals participating in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement….

“Democrats Who Want to Be President Back Away from Israel,”

by Jonathan S. Tobin, National Review, August 7, 2017:

The shift to the left by Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York demonstrates the power of a party base that is abandoning the Jewish state.

Both were once rock-solid supporters of Israel. But both have other priorities these days — they are thinking about running for president in 2020. Their problem is that no one who plans to compete in future Democratic primaries can ignore the growing power of their party’s left wing, which has grown increasingly hostile to Israel.

The influence of the far left is the only thing that might explain why Booker and Gillibrand are presenting themselves to their party’s base as less than fully supportive of Israel. The context for this development is a sea change in the Democratic party that has been taking shape over the past two decades. Where once the Democrats were the lockstep pro-Israel party and Republicans were divided about backing Israel, the parties’ positions are now reversed. Republicans today are nearly unanimous in their enthusiastic support for the Jewish state, and they oppose all measures that endanger its security. Now it is the Democrats who are split, with polls showing that those who identify with the party are far less likely to back Israel than Republicans are.

The left-wing grass roots of the Democratic party are increasingly hostile to Israel, something that became clear in 2012 when the delegates at the Democratic National Convention revolted against their leadership’s efforts to include in the party platform a recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The delegates booed loudly and rejected the measure in a voice vote while the convention chairman ignored the crowd and declared that the measure had passed. The spectacle was a benchmark moment.

Congressional Democrats also demonstrated the limits of their sympathy for Israel during the debate over the Iran nuclear deal. When President Obama declared that support for the agreement was a litmus test of party loyalty, few Democrats bucked him. Both Gillibrand and Booker supported the deal’s ratification by the backhanded method the administration employed rather than by gaining the support of two-thirds of the Senate – which the Constitution requires for treaties.

In 2016, Democrats growing split over Israel was evident in the Clinton and Sanders campaigns. The candidates disagreed over Israel’s right of self-defense and over support for Palestinian ambitions — one of the few areas where they differed substantively. The Clinton forces were able to quash any potential revolt over the issue, but the presence on the platform committee of Sanders delegates such as Representative Keith Ellison and Cornel West — prominent supporters of anti-Israel measures — was a harbinger of the growing animosity toward Israel….

Christian to be deported to Iran, told ‘it’s your problem you decided to become a Christian’

“An Iranian actress, who moved to Sweden after her conversion from Islam to Christianity” is being deported back to Iran.

Shame on Sweden. The country is already under siege from Islamic supremacists and jihadists because of its suicidal immigration policy. 80 percent of its police force wants to quit because of its dangerous work. Violent no go zones have expanded to include a mall and respectable business districts. The country is the rape capital of Europe. It has been deemed on the verge of civil war. But instead of deporting the real troublemakers, Sweden is turning its back on Aideen Strandsson, who possibly faces death for apostasy at the hands of Iranian regime if she is sent back.

Rather than receive from Swedish authorities the slightest sympathy and humanitarian assistance, Strandsson says she was told:

“It’s not our problem if you decided to become a Christian” even if the refusal of asylum results in rape, torture or death.

Aideen Strandsson

Oddly, Sweden has a reputation as “the world’s humanitarian conscience and a safe haven for refugees.” Sweden would apparently prefer to see its country continue to be decimated by the wrong kind of asylum seekers than extend a helping hand to this innocent Christian lady.

“Sweden Tells Iranian Christian Woman Fearing Deportation It’s Her ‘Problem She Decided to Become Christian’”,

by Anugrah Kumar , Christian Post, August 7, 2017:

An Iranian actress, who moved to Sweden after her conversion from Islam to Christianity following a vision of Jesus in her dream, is now facing deportation and has been told by Swedish authorities “it’s not our problem if you decided to become a Christian” even if the refusal of asylum results in rape, torture or death.

“They said to me it’s your personal life and it’s not our problem if you decided to become a Christian, and it’s your problem,” Christian Broadcasting Network quoted Aideen Strandsson as saying.

Strandsson traveled to Sweden in 2014 on a work visa, and has twice been denied asylum in that country. “It is really dangerous for me and I don’t know why immigration doesn’t believe that,” she said. “I’m really in danger.”

However, Swedish authorities do not seem to care. “Her case has been appealed and processed by the Migration Agency and thereafter by the Swedish courts, which have also decided that she cannot be granted asylum,” Swedish migration board official Ulrika Langels told CBN.

Swedish attorney Gabriel Donner pointed out, “The (Swedish) migration board information regarding Iranian prisons tell us that torture and rape is common and it is a breach of international law to subject any person to such treatment. Some of them are killed straight off, some of them succeed in going into hiding, some of them escape to another place, but you are putting them at risk.”

Strandsson’s Iranian passport has been taken away. Her first choice is to remain in Sweden, if possible, the actress said.

“I read the Bible and I understood what Jesus said about peace, about love, about kindness, and in my heart I became a Christian when I was in Iran,” she said earlier.

Sweden has otherwise been generous in granting asylum to others.

In April, a prominent pro-choice activist from El Salvador, Maria Teresa Rivera, became the first known person to be granted asylum for “abortion persecution” after Sweden agreed to provide her protection from “political persecution” in her country.

The Swedish Migration Agency officially granted Rivera and her 11-year-old son political asylum, agreeing it is “clear that this (political) persecution is rooted partly in her sex as female,” and “political opinions.”

Last year, Lund County administration in south Sweden said it was considering giving state-financed driving licenses and housing grants to those Swedish Islamic State fighters who had returned to the country after fighting for the terror group in Iraq and Syria, saying it would help them reintegrate into society.

Around 140 Swedish nationals had been identified as having returned to their home country after fighting for Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot also known as ISIS, ISIL or Daesh.

Severe persecution of Christians in Iran is common knowledge.

Iran is ranked eighth on Open Doors’ World Watch list of the world’s top 50 Christian-persecuting countries. The Islamic government in Iran persecutes Christians, particularly converts, on the belief that their religion is Western-influenced and a threat to the country’s Islamic identity.

Iranian authorities regularly raid and shut down house churches, imprisoning their leaders and torturing them. The government follows Sharia law, which calls for the death penalty for apostates……

Afghani Muslim migrant German soldier dismissed, supports Hamas, said “F**k the Jews”

“The court’s decision said he claimed he had language difficulties because he was raised in Afghanistan and has only been in the Federal Republic for a few years.”

Why was he admitted into the Germany military in the first place? Do the Germans let anyone who walks into the country immediately join the military? When he was admitted, was he questioned to the slightest degree about his beliefs? Or would that have been “Islamophobic”?

“German court dismisses soldier for denying Israel’s existence,”

by Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, August 5, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A court in Hanover in the state of Lower Saxony affirmed in June the German armed forces’ decision to discharge a soldier because of his rejection of Israel’s right to exist and support for the US- and EU-classified terrorist organization Hamas.

The soldier of Afghan background lashed out at Israel, Jews and the United States during questioning by Germany’s military counter-intelligence service (MAD) in 2016.

According to the legal decision obtained by The Jerusalem Post on Friday, the unnamed soldier said “F***… the Jews and the USA” and justified support for Hamas and Fatah. The German military determined in March that the soldier’s comments violated Germany’s anti-hate law. MAD said the soldier also rejected Israel’s legitimacy as a state.

The court stated that the soldier’s pro-Hamas and anti-Israel assertions are incompatible with military conduct in Germany’s free, democratic social order.

In February, the soldier denied he is a supporter of Islamist groups and merely stated his position toward Israel. He added it does not matter to him what Israel does.

The soldier started his service in 2016 and planned to serve until 2024. The court’s decision said he claimed he had language difficulties because he was raised in Afghanistan and has only been in the Federal Republic for a few years. The soldier denied his allegedly anti-Jewish and anti-American statements when questioned by MAD. He said he is a Shi’ite and has showed sympathy for his religious brethren….

California: Muslims Attack Counter Jihad Coalition, Law Enforcement Caves to Muslims

271 jihadis have returned to France from the Islamic State, only some are in custody

Leaving a bacon sandwich outside a mosque is worse than sexually abusing an 11-year-old girl

Britain has made its priorities clear: offending Muslims and Islam is far, far more serious than jihad terror or the sexual abuse of Infidel girls. To move strongly against such crimes would be “Islamophobic.” The British authorities have made their taste for jihad terrorists, and disdain for their foes, abundantly clear. While I am banned from the country for the crime of noting — correctly — that Islam has doctrines of warfare against unbelievers, Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation. Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.

The UK Home Office recently admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”

May’s government also admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country.

“In UK, Leaving a Bacon Sandwich Outside a Mosque Is Worse Than Sexually Abusing An 11-Year-Old Girl,” by Pardes Seleh, Independent Journal Review, August 2, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

In the UK, you can get jailed if you leave a bacon sandwich outside a mosque — but if you’re a Koran teacher who sexually abused his 11-year-old student, you might get spared because your wife doesn’t speak English.

That is what is being portrayed in a side-by-side comparison of two vetted news stories:

In 2014, a 40-year-old Islamic teacher by the name of Suleman Maknojioa was spared prison time despite reportedly sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl. During a private tutoring session with the girl and her two brothers, Maknojioa had repeatedly rubbed the girl’s leg and reached underneath her headscarf to feel her chest.

He was first convicted of five counts of sexual abuse and given a 40-week jail sentence, but that was suspended after courts heard his family was “dependent” on him and he was on state benefits, and his wife speaks “very little English.”…

Later, in 2016, a man who was arrested for placing a bacon sandwich outside a British mosque was found dead in his prison cell halfway through his 12-month sentence.

35-year-old Kevin Crehan and his friends, 46-year-old Alison Bennett, 48-year-old Mark Bennett, and 31-year-old Angelina Swales, pleaded guilty to a “racially motivated attack” on the Jamia Mosque in Bristol earlier that year.

The four had reportedly shouted racial slurs to worshippers, tied a flag with the words “no mosques” to the fence outside the mosque, and placed their bacon sandwiches in front of the mosque door and on the door handle….

Muslim who murdered Jewish girlfriend says ‘I’m going to kill every Jew. One isn’t enough for me.’

The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13).

“‘I’m going to kill every Jew,’” by Hezki Baruch, Israel National News, August 2, 2017:

Muhammad Kharoff, the Shechem (Nablus) Arab who was arrested on suspicion of murdering 29-year-old Michal Halimi, admitted in court that the murder was done in order to help free convicted terrorists.

Halimi, who lived in the Binyamin-region town of Adam, was found dead in the Holon sands on July 24.

“I wanted to kidnap her and swap her for the prisoners,” Kharoff told the court.

Kharoff also denied that there was a relationship between himself and Halimi and threatened “to kill all the Jews.”

“One isn’t enough for me,” he said.

Kharoff was in a relationship with Halimi, and the two published on their Facebook pages their intent to become engaged.

An indictment will be filed against Kharoff in the coming days.

Meanwhile, Lehava CEO Bentzi Gopshtein said, “The price of assimilation and the left’s co-pollution (a play on the Hebrew word for coexistence) is pushing us [to the edge]. Here, another Jewess was murdered for the sake of coexistence.”…

TWO JORDANIANS KILLED AND ISRAELI INJURED IN DEADLY EMBASSY SHOOTING AS TENSIONS ESCALATE

TWO JORDANIAN MEN HAVE BEEN KILLED AND AN ISRAELI INJURED AFTER A DEADLY SHOOTING AT THE “FORTRESS–LIKE” ISRAELI EMBASSY IN AMMAN, LOCAL AUTHORITIES HAVE CONFIRMED.

By Thomas Hunt, The Express, July 24, 2017:

In a statement, police said the two men had entered the embassy to carry out furniture repairs before the shooting took place.

Jordanian police sealed off the embassy compound and deployed dozens of anti-terrorism forces following the incident.

A police statement said: “We have started a large scale investigation into the incident and ordered the prosecutor general to look at all the details.
“Initial checks suggested the two Jordanian men had entered the embassy compound as workmen.”

Tensions escalated between the two countries when Israel installed metal detectors at entry points to Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem after two Israeli policemen were shot dead by three Arab-Israeli gunmen near the site on Friday.

The move sparked a series of violent clashes and led Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian Authority President, to halt security cooperation with Israel.

Israeli Minister for Regional Development Tzachi Hanegbi said: “They [the metal detectors] will remain.“The murderers will never tell us how to search the murderers.“If they [Palestinians] do not want to enter the mosque, then let them not enter the mosque.”The Jordanians were reportedly working for a furniture company
But Israel’s public security minister Gilad Erdan called for the measures to be eased for some “regular” worshippers.Mr Erdan instead called on officials to “avoid putting all of these [people] through metal detectors” and focus only on potential troublemakers.Secretary General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit said: “The Israeli government is playing with fire and risking a major crisis with the Arab and Islamic world.Jordanian police sealed off the embassy compound and deployed dozens of anti-terrorism forces
“Jerusalem is a red line that Muslims and Arabs cannot allow to be crossed… and what is happening today is an attempt to impose a new reality on the Holy city.”He added that the current Israeli policies “hurt the feelings” of the whole Muslim world not only Palestinians.Many observers are worried that the violence will overspill into neighbouring countries in the Middle East.Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish President, said: “No one can expect the Islamic world to remain unresponsive after the humiliation Muslims suffered with the restrictions at the Noble Sanctuary.”

“Three businesses in Glasgow’s south-side named as ‘targets’ in ISIS-affiliated hit list,” by Craig Williams, Glasgow Live, July 18, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Three businesses in Glasgow have been included in a list of ‘target’ sites in the UK by fanatics linked to ISIS.

In messages encouraging aspiring terrorists to carry out ‘lone wolf’ attacks on the UK’s Jewish community, the three locations on the south side of the city are listed in posts on pro-ISIS social media channel Lone Mujahid.

The information comes from Spanish ISIS monitoring group Asesoria de Inteligencia y Consultoria de Seguridad (the Spanish Consultancy of Intelligence and Security or AICS), where analysts there have labelled the social media channel as “very dangerous” owing to its distribution of explosive manuals and attack procedures, thought to have been used by ISIS sympathisers in Europe.

Their report, seen by Glasgow Live and dated July 14, indicates that information concerning businesses and shops owned by Jewish people in the UK is being shared widely amongst Islamist propaganda sites tied to ISIS.

Contained within the list are the business locations and opening times alongside information about the proprietors themselves.

The AICS report ends by concluding that, given the information “they cannot rule out that some types of hostile action could be levelled against some of the listed establishments.”…

It is feared that as many as 30 Scots are believed to have travelled to Syria and Iraq to join the extremist groups over the past few years….

He was lashing out after the President marginalized him. What’s that? The Islamic doctrine of jihad warfare against Christians and other non-Muslims? Oh, don’t pay any attention to that.

The drama began when Noel Droni asked a 37-year-old homeless man outside the interdenominational Times Square Church, on W. 51st St., if he was a Christian on Monday, cops said. When the man told Droni he was Christian, Droni allegedly pulled a red wrench from his backpack and smashed the church’s glass door.

He yelled “Allahu akbar,” Arabic for “God is great,” and then vowed violence, police said.

“I am going to blow up the church and come back and kill any Christians,” he said, according to court papers….

Sudanese Christians arrested and fined for selling food during Ramadan

While Christians in the U.S. persist in assuming that Ramadan is an entirely benign religious observance, their coreligionists in Muslim countries do not have that luxury.

“Sudan: Fines Issued in Sudan’s El Gedaref for Selling Food During Ramadan,” Radio Dabanga, June 13, 2017 (thanks to International Christian Concern):

El Gedaref — The court in El Gedaref has fined people, including Christians, for selling food and tea during the fasting month of Ramadan.

More than 10 people received a fine of SDG2,000 ($298) each. Lawyer Ramzi Yahya told Radio Dabanga that public order police arrested them during a campaign last week.

“This is a clear discrimination against Christians and contrary to the slogans of religious coexistence launched by the Sudan Government for the international community.”

Yahya said that local restaurants have been barred from catering during Ramadan for two years in a row. “Meanwhile there are a considerable number of Christians and other people who excuse themselves from the fasting in El Gedaref.”

Freedom of Christians probed

The European Union Special Envoy for the Promotion of Freedom of Religion or Belief visited Sudan mid-March to inquire about the situation of Christians and the demolition of churches in the country. He pointed to the planned demolition of 27 churches and church buildings in Khartoum which was delayed after an appeal was made to the court by lawyers….

“Ramadan Martyrs Get Extra Reward: Experts Warn to Brace for ‘Holy Month of Jihad,’” by George Thomas, CBN News, June 1, 2017:

Watch CBN News’ George Thomas’  interview with Middle East expert Robert Spencer & former Muslim Isik Abla on why Islamic terrorists are commanded to kill during Ramadan

ISIS is calling on its followers to massacre civilians during Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, saying violence is a ‘beloved” act to Allah.

And it appears the bloodletting is underway.

Muslims in Afghanistan are mourning the loss of family members, friends and colleagues, the day after a massive truck bomb in the capital city killed at least 90 people and injured more than 450 people….

“The depth of, and the magnitude of the destruction, was so high that even properties within a 3 mile radius of the incident were affected, said Abdullah Habibzai, Kabul’s acting mayor.

A suicide bomber drove his truck into Kabul’s heavily guarded diplomatic quarter during the morning rush hour, leaving behind chaos and destruction….

“The total damage based on our recent data is at least 1.5 million U.S. dollars but the estimation is going on and we expect up to 6 million U.S. dollars damage to the properties,” Habibzai told reporters at a news conference.

The attack in Afghanistan came just days after ISIS massacred 29 Christians near Cairo, Egypt and carried out two massive car bombings in Baghdad, Iraq, killing at least 31 people….

The bloodshed comes as Muslims around the world started their annual 30-day Ramadan fast on May 26.

“Ramadan is a holy and glorious month so we welcome this Ramadan with joy,” said Muhammad Fikri, a Muslim religious teacher. “In this month we come to the mosque to worship, give charity and also try to clean our hearts.”

In Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim nation, hundreds of thousands are flocking to mosques to also pray for peace.

“In welcoming this Ramadan, let us show that Islam is cool, peaceful and safe and let us compete in making good things in our life,” said Sun Keng Hok, an Indonesian Chinese Muslim….
