President Trump’s Envoy to Israel Tells Abbas, Palestinians to ‘Stop Denying Jewish History’

Jason Greenblatt, who is President Donald Trump’s special envoy to the Middle East, told Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to quit denying the true history of Jerusalem and its connection to the Jewish people.

Greenblatt made the comments in response to Abbas’s remarks at a youth festival about how the Arabs amd Christians are the rightful owners of Jerusalem — while conveniently omitting the Jews.

Jerusalem, of course, was established by God for his chosen Jewish people, according to biblical history. And failure to acknowledge that has fueled almost all the anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence in recent years.

Here, Greenblatt visited with Hamas in January:

Israel Today has more on his response to Abbas:

As far as Israel is concerned, denial of the Jewish historical and religious connection to this land, and especially to Jerusalem, is the primarily roadblock to peace at present.

Finally, it would seem that the American government agrees.

US President Donald Trump’s special Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt, on Thursday blasted Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas for failing to mention that Jerusalem’s connection to the Jewish people.

On Tuesday, Abbas addressed a Palestinian youth festival and repeatedly told the young Arabs that Jerusalem is and always has been a city for Muslims and Christians. No mention of Jews.

According to Greenblatt, that kind of rhetoric only pushes peace further away.

“Pres. Abbas states about Jerusalem: ‘it is Arab, Muslim, and Christian.’ And makes no mention of any Jewish ties. Nothing peaceful or productive can come from statements like this,” Greenblatt wrote on Twitter.

“Lasting peace will not be achieved by denying Judaism’s thousands of years of ties to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is holy to Muslims, Christians, and Jews,” he added.

All of the Palestinian Authority’s most hard-line positions are based on the premise that the Jews have no right to be here.

Furthermore, Israel believes that a genuine, long-lasting peace can only be achievable if it’s built upon a foundation of truth and acceptance of documented historical fact.

Muslim Student: NY City’s Manhattan College ‘overrun by Islamic proselytizing, Balkan Muslims turning to jihad’

I just received this extraordinary email from a Muslim student at Manhattan College in the Bronx. It is noteworthy not just for this student’s courage in thinking for himself and not passively accepting what he is taught either at home or at his far-left college, but also for what he reveals about the Balkan Muslim community in New York (“rapidly moving toward radical beliefs”) and about Manhattan College (“Every hallway, every classroom, every announcement, every email; contains an extreme amount of Islamic advertising”).

This is true not just of Manhattan College, but of colleges and universities all over the country. Likewise I’m sure that other Muslim communities in the U.S. are moving in the same direction as the one to which this courageous young man belongs. It won’t be very much longer before America begins to see on a large scale what folly the Democrats’ immigration and counterterror policies really have been, and what damage they have brought upon our country.

Hello Pamela,

I am a Muslim Albanian college student and I attend Manhattan College in Riverdale NY. I am shocked to say that I have only recently stumbled upon your web-page and YouTube videos. I have criticized Jihad and Radical Islam since as long as I can remember and continue to do so despite being ridiculed. My family is from Montenegro and was not religious prior to coming to the United States in 80’s, and continues to be the same. Nobody prays or even goes to the Mosque. Manhattan College is a Lasallian Catholic institution who’s tuition can hit up to 60K a year. Every hallway, every classroom, every announcement, every email; contains an extreme amount of Islamic advertising whether it be a club, or a prayer meeting or even an event.(The walls of every hallway are covered with flyers) I am outraged that my professors are all brainwashed by a left wing ideology which I have said long before I found out about you, is in an alliance with Islam. The only thing that tells you you’re at a catholic school is our chapel. Being educated by these leftists makes school practically worthless, and it is become extremely hard for me to choose a path in academia where I would feel that I am not wasting time, and one that would benefit me.

My reason for sending this email is to tell you that you are an inspiration and a true patriot for the country we are loyal to and love. After reading Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Balkan articles on your webpage, I was not surprised at all. My position on Serbia is similar to yours but happens to be an unthinkable one within the Albanian community. I believe that there is reason to believe that the Albanian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin community (which are pretty much one and the same) in the United States and New York in particular is rapidly moving toward radical beliefs. The community talks about many families who are extremely religious and are more like Arabs than they are Albanians. I have no tangible evidence of this other than my few experiences and hear-say, but I believe it is my duty to report this, which I see as a potential threat to the nation to which I pledge allegiance; to those who are currently in positions to investigate, bring light to, and make changes. A closer look needs to be taken at Balkan People, who they associate themselves/have economic ties with back in Europe, and who their link is to the Islamic world, which I happen to believe is Turkey. At the current time I do not wish to be in the public eye for any reason, and I would appreciate if for some reason this email would be talked about, that my name is not used, but that is subject to change in the near future as our battle continues to get harder.

Thank You and God Bless You,
[Name redacted]

Swedish Defense College: Fear of being called ‘racist’ crippling police efforts to counter Islamic terrorism

“You risk being identified as racist in a way that you did not see in other European countries. There, this question was as uncontroversial as the importance of combating Nazism and right-wing extremism.”

What European countries is he talking about? Maybe Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, but that’s about it. Otherwise the charge of “racism,” and fear of that charge, is crippling efforts to counter jihad terrorism all over Europe, and in North America as well.

“The race card allows authorities to curb work against jihadism,” translated from “Rasistkortet får myndigheter att bromsa arbete mot jihadism,” by Dick Erixon, Samtiden, February 11, 2018:

For fear of being called racist, authorities in Sweden have not been able to track violent jihadists, and therefore some slipped away to other countries, according to researchers at the Center for Asymmetric Threats and Terrorism Studies at the Defense College.

The race card is roughly abused in Sweden, mostly in terms of stopping public analyses and efforts to counter severe Islamist crimes, such as attacks on women and terrorism.

Last month, a book about honor-related violence came out that again accuses Swedes of racism and “abusive stereotypes of immigrants,” instead of taking the risks of religious fundamentalism seriously.

These leftist forces have gained power over the public by constantly accusing anyone who raises these problems of being racist. This has meant that authorities systematically downplay and neglect the problems. It becomes easier and more comfortable to denounce and condemn ordinary Swedes for extremism and prejudice.

This cowardice has distorted the reality of Sweden in such a way that the country is less prepared than other countries to face religious extremism. Sweden has become a breeding ground for jihadists because Swedish authorities, ranging from social services to police, are blind to extremism and let it thrive — for fear of being called racist.

This is noticeable in several ways. The number of people traveling from Sweden to the war in Syria to join the Islamic State and other terrorist networks has been around 300, which is the second most in the EU in relation to our population.

A study from the Swedish Defense College last autumn, based on data from Säpo, showed that the number of violent Islamist extremists in Sweden has increased thirtyfold in seven years. This summer, it was estimated that the number of jihadists was about 2,300. In 2000, the number was estimated at 200 people.

In an interview for SVT today, Peder Hyllengren, researcher at the Swedish Defense College, says that the security work against violent jihadism has been slowing down in Sweden for a long time, because there is an activism that made it difficult for politicians and others to engage in this issue.

“You risk being identified as racist in a way that you did not see in other European countries. There, this question was as uncontroversial as the importance of combating Nazism and right-wing extremism,” he says.

But in Sweden, the accusation of racism can lead to unmitigated tragedy. The result has been that the state and the authorities are not able to carry out the work of maintaining the security of the Swedish people. It’s serious….

Afghanistan publishes ‘undeniable’ proof ISIS, Taliban trained in Pakistan

Afghanistan has provided what it claims to be proof to Islamabad that the Islamic State and Taliban attackers who killed about 200 people on Afghan soil over the last month trained and planned the assaults in Pakistan.

Pakistan has long provided a safe haven to the Taliban and other jihadist and criminal organisations, leading President Trump to “put Pakistan on notice.”

It is long overdue for Pakistan to be recognized as the state sponsor of terrorism that it is. It recently condemned a US drone strike that killed two Islamic jihadis, signalling that it is no friend and ally to America.

Despite what is known about Pakistan, Afghanistan is no better, being itself a base for terrorists. In fact the two trouble spots have a kind of symbiotic relationship, as Pakistan harbours its terrorists in Afghanistan according to intelligence sources.

“Afghanistan Publishes ‘Undeniable’ Proof Islamic State, Taliban Jihadis Trained in Pakistan”, by Edwin Mora, Breitbart, February 1, 2018:

Afghanistan has provided what it claims to be proof to Islamabad that the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and Taliban attackers who killed about 200 people on Afghan soil over the last month trained and planned the assaults in Pakistan.

The Associated Press (AP) reports:

The Afghan officials said some of the latest evidence came from confessions by captured militants. They said they told the Pakistani side that some of the militants had been trained at Islamic seminaries in the Pakistani border town of Chaman.

Earlier in the week, Afghanistan’s U.N. envoy Mahmoud Saikal tweeted that the father of one of the insurgents involved in the bloody Jan. 20 assault on Kabul’s Intercontinental Hotel “conceded his son was trained in Chaman” by Pakistan’s InterServices Intelligence [ISI].

Echoing the Pentagon, Wais Ahmed Barmak, the interior minister in Afghanistan, also unveiled evidence, including confessions, that purportedly show Pakistan allows Taliban leaders to “roam freely” on its territory, notes AP.

On Thursday, Barmak and Afghanistan’s spy chief Masoom Stanekzai spoke to reporters, saying Afghanistan handed “undeniable” evidence to Pakistan showing that the recent spate of attacks was planned on Pakistani soil, reports the Agence France-Presse (AFP) news agency.

The attacks, which reportedly killed about 200 people, were apparently “planned from across the border,” declared Stanekzai, adding, “We asked Pakistan to hand over the culprits of the attacks in Afghanistan, and we shared undeniable evidence that the attacks were planned there.”

Afghanistan’s interior minister told reporters Kabul presented evidence to Pakistan during a meeting in Islamabad on Wednesday.

The Pakistani embassy in Kabul said the evidence provided by Afghan spy chief Stanekzai was “being examined for its authenticity.”

“Pakistan has not given any commitment to give [a] reply to the information received from the NDS [National Directorate of Security] Chief Mohammad Masoom Stanekzai,” the embassy said in a statement, reports TOLO News.

Islamabad has reportedly condemned the recent deadly attacks in Afghanistan.

During a visit to the Islamabad-based Afghan embassy, Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said his country “strongly condemns terrorism in all forms and manifestations,” points out AFP.

He added that, during Wednesday’s bilateral meeting, the two countries “agreed to work together to strengthen mutual trust and bilateral engagement.”

The revelations that the recent attackers planned the deadly assaults in Afghanistan from Pakistan come as the U.S.-NATO mission recently conceded that the Taliban continues to expand its influence in Afghanistan where it now controls or contests about 45 percent of the country.

Late last year, the United Nations also reported that the Taliban’s rival—the Islamic State branch in Afghanistan known as the Khorasan province (ISIS-K)—is growing and has extended its jihadi tentacles to seven provinces in recent months.

“Nearly 200 people have been killed over the past month in attacks claimed by the Taliban and a rival Islamic State [IS] affiliate,” reports AP.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration is expected to suspend about $2 billion in security aid to Islamabad over Pakistan’s reluctance to take decisive action against jihadists who operate on its soil and are fighting against American troops and their allies in Afghanistan, namely the Afghan Taliban and its al-Qaeda-linked ally, the Haqqani Network.

In its most recent assessment of the more than 16-year-old Afghanistan war issued in December, the Pentagon notes that Pakistan remains a “sanctuary” for terrorists, adding:

The Afghanistan-Pakistan border region remains a sanctuary for various groups, including al- Qa’ida, al-Qa’ida in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), the Haqqani Network, Lashkar-e- Tayyiba, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), ISIS-K, and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.

Sanctuary on the Pakistani side and presence on the Afghan side remain security challenges for both countries and pose a threat to regional security and stability.

The Pentagon considers the Haqqani Network, blamed for at least one of the recent deadly attacks in Afghanistan, to be the primary threat facing U.S. troops and their allies.

Islamabad has repeatedly denied that it harbors jihadist, but it has acknowledged that it holds some influence over the Afghan Taliban.

Afghanistan and Pakistan have long accused one another of supporting terrorists…..

VIDEO: Do Democrats hate President Trump more than they love America?

The logic of hate…

Celebrities attended ‘The People’s State of the Union’ event in New York City on January 29th, 2018. Among those anti-Trump speakers was Michael Moore. The ‘The People’s State of the Union’ is the anti-America alternate to the State of the Union speech by President Donald Trump. The event is aimed to resist President Trump and his pro-American agenda to make America great, again.

“Hate” is one of those words that is hard to define but easy to know when seen.

Can we agree that a significant portion of Hollywood elites, illegal immigrants, media personalities, Ivy League academics and Democrat leaders hate President Trump? Add to them, the increasing anti-Trump vitriol from silly millennials and pretty soon you have a significant body of influential people spewing assinine bromides, holding embarrassing protests and causing Aristotle to turn over in his grave by violating every law of Western logic. How do I know this, because these folks will take issue with my statement that there are actually “laws” of logic!

When you throw out the laws of logic you bring in the “logic” of hate as seen in the below video.

Muslim Diversity Visa Lottery Winner Offered to Murder Obama for ISIS

“What I am saying is, to shoot Obama and then get shot ourselves, will it do? That will strike fear in the hearts of the infidels.”

Now that’s diversity. And it comes straight from the Qur’an: “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may strike fear in the hearts of the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know, whom Allah knows” (8:60).

Of course, no one would have dreamed of trying to screen Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev for jihadist sentiments. That would have been “Islamophobic.”

Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev

“Diversity Visa Lottery Winner Offered to Kill Obama for ISIS,” by Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News, January 17, 2018:

Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev was both lucky and evil.

His luck was demonstrated when he won admission to the United States through the diversity visa lottery; his evilness, by his stated willingness to assassinate the president of the United States or commit a terrorist attack in New York City — if he could not travel to Syria to join the Islamic State, and if that is what the Islamic State ordered him to do.

When Juraboev was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Oct. 27, 2017, New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill summarized his case in a statement released by the U.S. Justice Department.

“The defendant in this case lived in Brooklyn while making plans to travel to Syria to support a design(at)ed terrorist organization,” O’Neill said. “If that was not successful, the defendant schemed of bombing Coney Island or killing the president of the United States.”

This story starts in 2011.

“Juraboev, a national of Uzbekistan, was admitted to the United States as a diversity visa lottery recipient in 2011,” said a report issued jointly this week by the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security.

Three years later in 2014 — according to an Oct. 25, 2017 sentencing letter that then-Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Bridget Rohde sent to U.S. District Judge William Kuntz — Juraboev “first came to the attention of the government with his online postings on an Uzbek-language social media website.”

The website, according to the U.S. attorney, “propagated ISIS’s ideology and called for its Uzbek-speaking audience to join ISIS.”

On Aug. 8, 2014, Juraboev, then about 24 years old, went to this site and posted an alarming message.

“Greetings!” he wrote. “We too wanted to pledge our allegiance and commit ourselves while not present there. I am in USA now but we don’t have any arms. But is it possible to commit ourselves as dedicated martyrs anyway while here?

“What I am saying is, to shoot Obama and then get shot ourselves, will it do?” Juraboev said.

“That will strike fear in the hearts of the infidels,” he said….

REPORT: HAMAS Is Here In The United States of America [Video]

HAMAS has long been known as a Middle East terror organization that declares in its foundational Covenant that the obliteration of Israel is its raison d’etre and regularly fires missiles and digs tunnels across the border from Gaza to make that happen. But until now, its extensive networked presence here in the United States has been less well-understood, largely because of HAMAS’ success in disguising its operations through an array of front groups.

To cut through the web of HAMAS deceit, veteran Middle East analyst and author Ilana Freedman brings another volume in the Center for Security Policy Press’ Civilization Jihad Reader series, HAMAS, CAIR & the Muslim Brotherhood. As she explains in her highly readable yet fact-rich style, the Muslim Brotherhood (of which HAMAS is the Palestinian franchise) sought to expand into this country soon after World War II. But it really established a solid foothold with the founding in 1993 of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) by the top HAMAS operatives in the United States at the time.

As Freedman explains in her in-depth treatment of the 2008 Holy Land Foundation/HAMAS terror funding trial, while CAIR may be the most directly tied of the HAMAS branches inside the U.S., hundreds of other Brotherhood front groups all share the same objective, as spelled out in the Brotherhood’s 1991 Explanatory Memorandum. That objective is “destroying…Western Civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands [meaning those of the infidels]….” Unlike in the Middle East, where HAMAS’ Gaza operation confronts Israel kinetically and constantly, inside the U.S., the preferred method thus far has been “civilization jihad” – the stealthy, subversive use of infiltration, subversion and deception to pursue the destruction of the pillars of American society “from within.” By posing as “moderate” Islamic alternatives to the vicious violence of the likes of al Qaeda, the Islamic State or Taliban, the U.S. Brotherhood front groups have enjoyed remarkable success in advancing this agenda.

That is largely because Americans are all-too-often are unprepared to recognize deceit when it is employed in a sustained, disciplined fashion by skilled professionals. Consequently, as documented in a number of CSP Press’ other Civilization Jihad Reader Series offerings, key U.S. constituencies – notably, in academia, the courts and legal system, faith communities, government at all levels, local law enforcement and society in general – have failed to recognize that they are under assault by Brotherhood-associated individuals and groups. This is all the more shocking given that the latter’s loyalty to the triumph of Islam’s supremacist Sharia doctrine and to jihad to establish its dominance worldwide is of a piece with the ambitions of other jihadist groups.

Ilana Freedman cuts through such confusion, cognitive dissonance and willful blindness to exposes one group after another that represent themselves as not-for-profit organizations, Muslim advocacy representatives, or legitimate businesses for the jihadist front group they really are. For example, in addition to CAIR, she highlights the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC), the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and many more tied to the Muslim Brotherhood by the Department of Justice in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

Of particular importance is Freedman’s examination of how the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood has evolved with its formation in 2014 of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). Her analysis of the USCMO’s known links not only to jihadist fronts but to groups like Black Lives Matter and the Saul Alinsky-type anarchists that cluster under the name “Antifa” is especially timely as we see these apparently disparate groups form connections in a common drive to destroy America’s constitutional Republic. In addition, Freedman connects all these dots to national level donors and funders who enable such subversive operations to function.

In the following video, Center for Security Policy Vice President for Research and Analysis, Clare Lopez, who serves as the editor-in-chief of the “Terror Jihad” collection and its companion, the “Civilization Jihad Readers Series,” introduces the Center’s new monograph, HAMAS, CAIR & the Muslim Brotherhood.

Upon the publication of Ilana Freedman’s new monograph, Center’s President, Frank J. Gaffney, observed:

The damage to U.S. national security wrought by the subversive operations of HAMAS and other Muslim Brotherhood groups is less immediately visible than acts of violent terrorism. But in the long-term, it is these civilization jihadists’ relentless corrosion of the pillars of America’s society that poses the most grave threat to our Republic.

The Center is pleased to present the latest addition to our Civilization Jihad Reader series, HAMAS, CAIR & the Muslim Brotherhood as an important contribution to exposing and countering this insidious peril inside our country.

HAMAS, CAIR & the Muslim Brotherhood is available for purchase in Kindle and paperback. It can also be viewed and downloaded for free in PDF format below:

Iranian resistance urges UN to recognize ‘legitimate right of people of Iran to overthrow ruling religious fascism’

This is extraordinary and world-historical. But they shouldn’t expect any satisfaction from the thoroughly compromised United Nations, a tool of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

“Iranian resistance issues list of demands urging UN to take action,” Al Arabiya, January 5, 2018:

The Iranian Resistance urged the UN Security Council to defend the legitimate and inalienable right of the Iranian people to overthrow the religious fascism ruling Iran and to attain the freedom for which they have been demonstrating, in a statement issued Friday.

The Resistance also requested that the Security Council to strongly condemn the mullahs’ regime and hold it accountable for killing defenseless and unarmed demonstrators.

The regime actions constitute a clear crime against humanity, and confronting them is the responsibility of the United Nations, the statement said.

According to reliable reports obtained by the Iranian Resistance, at least 50 protesters have been shot and killed by the Revolutionary Guards during the first eight days of the uprising, and more than 3,000 have been arrested. Children as young as 12 or 13 years old are among those killed.

The actual number of martyrs and detained is much more; a reality that the Iranian regime is trying hard to hide….

In welcoming today’s meeting on Iran’s uprising, the Iranian Resistance emphasizes the need for the following actions to be taken by the UN Security Council:

1. Recognizing the legitimate right of the people of Iran to overthrow the ruling religious fascism and establish their own freedom and sovereignty.

2. Strongly condemning and holding accountable the Iranian regime for the slaughter and mass arrests of defenseless and unarmed protesters.

3. Sanctioning the regime for systematic violations of human rights, including the 1988 massacre and the killings during the current uprising.

4. Condemning restrictions on the Internet and social networks, and ensuring the public’s free access to information.

5. Enforcing binding decisions for the release of thousands of arrested demonstrators and for the establishment of a monitoring system; and warning the Iranian regime that more serious actions will be taken should present trends continue.

ISIS jihadi posts selfie from NYC: ‘We are in your own Backyard’

Why are the news organizations pixelating out this clown’s eyes? Are they going to pixelate faces on wanted posters now? Why are they protecting this guy? He wants to commit mass murder in New York City. Don’t they want this clown to be identified and caught? Or would that be “Islamophobic”?

A man wearing a scarf with Islamic State flag is shown in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 79th Street and Fifth Avenue.

“NYPD investigating ‘ISIS selfies’ outside NYC museum: report,” by Lukas Mikelionis, Fox News, January 3, 2018 (thanks to Ken):

Authorities in New York are reportedly investigating photographs of a possible ISIS supporter taking selfies outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art and in view of One World Trade Center.

The chilling images, that began circulating on social media over the weekend, shows an individual posing while wearing an ISIS-branded scarf over his face.

The picture was captioned with “We are in your own Backyard,” according to The New York Daily News.

“The NYPD is aware of the photograph. As with all terror related threats, the NYPD is looking into the incident. At this time there are no credible threats related to New York City,” an NYPD spokesman told the newspaper on Tuesday.

Another photograph [right] subject to the investigation is a snap of a person holding a phone with an ISIS flag in the shadows of the One World Trade Center building. The image was reportedly taken in a similar spot where, weeks later, the Manhattan truck attacker killed eight people.

Eric Feinberg, the co-founder of GIPEC, a cyber-intelligence company that tracks terrorism-related hashtags, told the Daily News that imagery like that are aimed at spreading fear and possibly inspiring so-called lone wolf attacks.

But he warned that it remains unclear whether the pictures are authentic, adding that they may have been doctored. “Maybe it’s Photoshopped, maybe it’s not. It should be taken seriously,” he said….
