Muslim terrorist who murdered British tourist will be paid $1,025 per month

This is what is wrong with the West. This is what is wrong with our foreign policies and foreign aid. No country, no group, no organization should receive one thin dime of our money if they support, aid or abet terrorism. Further, no country, no group, no organization should receive Western aid if they impose and support the sharia, creed apartheid, gender apartheid, bigotry, Jew-hatred or misogyny.

Stop foreign aid to Islamic countries and genocidal Islamic groups.

TERRORIST ACCUSED OF KILLING A BRITISH STUDENT WILL BE PAID £800 A MONTH BY THE PALESTINIAN GOVERNMENT WHICH RECEIVES £25M-A-YEAR UK FOREIGN AID

  • Palestinian Jamil Tamimi murdered British theology student Hannah Bladon
  • He told police that he attacked Hannah in the hope a soldier would kill him
  • His family qualify for a ‘salary’ from the Palestinian Authority of £800 a month
  • Palestine receives more than £25 million a year from the UK in foreign aid

Someone tell the Daily Mail “Palestine” is not a country. Israel is Palestine.

By Nick Craven for The Mail on Sunday, 23 April 2017:

A terrorist accused of murdering a British student in Jerusalem will be paid a salary of more than £800 a month by the Palestinian government – which receives more than £25 million a year from the UK in foreign aid.

Jamil Tamimi, who has a history of mental health issues, killed theology student Hannah Bladon in a frenzied knife attack on Good Friday after the 21-year-old gave up her seat on a tram to a woman with a baby.

The 57-year-old Palestinian told police that he attacked Hannah, a Birmingham University exchange student attached to Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, in the hope that a soldier in the carriage would kill him.

Hannah Bladon was a Birmingham University exchange student attached to Jerusalem’s Hebrew University

Instead Tamimi was arrested and is almost certain to be lauded as a resistance ‘hero’ by the Palestinian Authority (PA), like hundreds of others before him.

An Israeli court has already ruled, following a psychiatric evaluation, that he is fit to stand trial and should be treated as a terrorist by the justice system.

It means Tamimi or his family qualify for a ‘salary’ from the PA, according to Itamar Marcus, spokesman for the Israeli monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch.

Muslim Migrants Storm Town Hall to Protest France’s Immigration Laws, 14 people injured

The hijrah (immigration jihad) is an invading army. Don’t kid yourself.

14 WOUNDED AFTER ILLEGAL MIGRANTS STORM TOWN HALL TO PROTEST FRANCE’S IMMIGRATION LAWS

By Virginia Hale, Breitbart, April 19, 2017:

A CROWD OF AROUND 200 ILLEGAL MIGRANTS FROM AFRICA STORMED ALFORTVILLE TOWN HALL ON TUESDAY MORNING, DEMANDING THE GOVERNMENT RELAX CRITERIA FOR REGULARISATION AND GIVE THEM RESIDENCE PAPERS.

Illegal migrants occupied the town hall for about an hour, frightening members of the public in the building as well as staff who had to retreat to their offices.

The migrants, who work at Rungis International Market, the world’s largest wholesale food market, began piling into the town hall at around 8.30 am, but staff didn’t notice their arrival until it was “too late”, according to Le Parisien.

When officers arrived to break up the protest and evacuate the town hall, they were forced to use tear gas as a group of around forty illegal immigrants were blocking access to the building. Le Parisien reports that following clashes, 14 people received medical treatment with three hospitalised.

“This illegal occupation prevented Alfortvillians from accessing public services throughout the morning, and caused anxiety among town hall staff and families who were already present in the building,” the commune’s Socialist mayor Luc Carvounas said in a statement.

“Although staff received the men, and listened to their demands, the members of the collective did not wish to enter into any dialogue, instead contenting themselves with denouncing government policy.”

Suggesting the protest was linked to the far left, the mayor denounced the action as having been “exploitation of human misery for political purposes”.

Carvounas argued that it is unreasonable for far left groups to target his town hall, “since, in October 2015, Alfortville was one of the first communes in France to declare itself in favour of welcoming migrants”.

‘You are the future of Europe’: Turkish President urges Muslims to have at least 5 kids

Immigration jihad, population jihad, academic jihad, violent jihad, workplace jihad, economic jihad, legal jihad — every which way, they’re coming at us.

Mark Steyn tackles the population jihad in his excellent book, America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It. Ten years ago, Steyn foresaw this: “It’s the Demography, Stupid.”

Most people reading this have strong stomachs, so let me lay it out as baldly as I can: Much of what we loosely call the Western world will not survive this century, and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most Western European countries. There’ll probably still be a geographical area on the map marked as Italy or the Netherlands–probably–just as in Istanbul there’s still a building called St. Sophia’s Cathedral. But it’s not a cathedral; it’s merely a designation for a piece of real estate. Likewise, Italy and the Netherlands will merely be designations for real estate. The challenge for those who reckon Western civilization is on balance better than the alternatives is to figure out a way to save at least some parts of the West.

Every Muslim woman in the West has an obligation to jihad. As Europe imports millions from the Muslim world, the women bring this with them.

Former Muslim physician, Wafa Sultan, The God Who Hates:

The status of women in Muslim countries is a human catastrophe that the world has ignored for centuries and for which it is now paying a high price for ignoring. An oppressed and subjugated woman cannot give birth to an emotionally and mentally well-balanced man. The invisible Muslim woman has been and continues to be the hen who incubates the eggs of terrorism and provides them with the necessary warmth to hatch the terrorists. The woman who stands before the television camera and tells the world, “Three of my sons were martyrs and I hope the fourth becomes one, too,” is a woman who has been deprived of her motherhood. And when she continues, “My sons are now celebrating their marriage with their virgins in paradise,” we must conclude that she has been deprived of sense and conscience, too! Who has deprived this woman of her motherhood, her mind, and her conscience? People, both men and women, fall into the trap laid for them by those who educate them in the first years of their lives. People are what they are told to be.

And with the rich entitlement program for Muslim migrants in rich countries across Europe, the more Muslim children, the stealthier.

‘YOU ARE THE FUTURE OF EUROPE’: ERDOGAN URGES TURKS IN EU TO HAVE AT LEAST 5 KIDS

By RT, March 17, 2017:

Turkish President Recep Erdogan has urged all Turks living in Europe to have at least five children, saying they are the future of the continent and that it would be the best response to the “injustices” imposed on expatriates there.

“Go live in better neighborhoods. Drive the best cars. Live in the best houses. Make not three, but five children. Because you are the future of Europe. That will be the best response to the injustices against you,” Erdogan said in the city of Eskisehir on Friday, according to AP.

The comments were made while the Turkish president was campaigning for a ‘yes’ vote in an upcoming constitutional referendum that would grant him sweeping new powers.

It is the latest in an ongoing string of comments aimed at Europe after Turkish ministers were prevented from holding campaign rallies there.

The Netherlands has bore the brunt of the criticisms, after it prevented the ministers from addressing a crowd in Rotterdam on Sunday, and later used water cannons to disperse Turkish demonstrators in the city.

Since then, Erdogan has hurled a string of insults at the European country, including accusing it of state terrorism, acting like “Nazi remnants,” and having a “rotten” character.

However, the president is not the only government official who has made his distaste for the Dutch known.

The country’s interior minister, Suleyman Soylu, said late Thursday that the EU is “playing games” to prevent Ankara from becoming strong, suggesting that Turkey could send 15,000 refugees a month to Europe to “blow its mind.” The minister singled out both the Netherlands and Germany, as three German states previously cancelled scheduled rallies.

Also on Thursday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned that Europe is headed for “wars of religion,” claiming Dutch politicians are taking the continent “to a cliff.”

In an effort to achieve a ‘yes’ vote in the referendum, Erdogan is heavily relying on support from the 5.5 million Turkish citizens living abroad.

If the legislation goes ahead, it would give the president the power to issue decrees, declare emergency rule, appoint ministers and state officials, and dissolve parliament.

Critics of the move say the success of the referendum would abolish the country’s system of checks and balances.

Opposition to Trump immigration ban is based on false pretenses

In this new video, I explain why opposition to President Trump’s immigration ban is based neither on fact nor on sound reasoning, but on a false imputation of motives. I taped this after the first ban was struck down, but since the same arguments are recurring now, this video remains relevant.

Nine Muslim ‘refugees’ gang-rape woman for two hours, ignoring her pleas

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

“Family of nine Iraqi asylum seekers ‘gang-raped drunk woman in Austria for two hours as she pleaded “No, I don’t want this” after luring her from her friends on New Year’s Eve,’” by Allan Hall, MailOnline, February 22, 2017:

Nine asylum seekers from the same family have gone on trial in the Austrian capital Vienna accused of the New Year’s Eve 2015 gang rape of a 28-year-old German teacher.

Prosecutors charged the Iraqi men with ‘abuse of a defenceless person and rape in a very humiliating and agonising way for the victim.’

At the opening of the trial on Tuesday the court heard how the woman, identified only as Sabine K., was ‘blind drunk’ when she went with the men to an apartment.

Most of the men deny the charges but DNA from six of them was found in or on her body.

The court heard how the victim arrived in Vienna on December 28 2015 to spend the New Year with a female friend in the city.

Shortly before midnight on December 31 they wandered into the city centre to join milling crowds celebrating the arrival of 2016 and at 2am were seen drinking in a bar-restaurant called Cactus.

Shortly before 3am Sabine’s friend noticed she was no longer there and was told by another patron that the men she had been talking with had ‘taken her away.’

The defendants, aged between 22 and 45, all arrived in Austria between May and December 2015 via the Balkan route.

At the time of the attack, five of them had cemented their right to stay, the applications of the other four were still pending.

Judge Petra Poschalko heard how the woman was taken by four of them to an apartment in Vienna’s Rustenschacher Allee, where five other men were waiting.

Sabine later said she found herself naked on a double bed being assaulted by the men one after the other.

Her lawyer Karina Fehringer. told the court that she was assaulted in the dark so she could not identify the men.

After the attacks, which went on for several hours, the victim needed in-patient treatment at a trauma clinic and now is under psychiatric care for post traumatic stress disorder.

She had another breakdown at the weekend and was too fragile to be in court to face her attackers.

Only one man, Mohamed Al-A., 31, admitted his role in the rapes and he sobbed in court as he said he was ‘really drunk’ on vodka at the time.

His Muslim faith may forbid him to drink alcoholic beverages, but on New Year’s Eve he said he made an exception and drank vodka. ‘I was really drunk,’ he said, and he further admitted; ‘this act is a crime in Iraq.’

He was with co-defendants Nazar Al-J., Mohammed Al-T. und Alaa Al-J. in the Cactus bar, and the four men are alleged to have taken the victim back to the apartment.

The other defendants – Hader Al-A., Mustafa Al-J., Nael Al-J., Marwan Al-J. und Sabah Al-J. – lay in wait for her there, the court was told.

Medical experts testified she was raped multiple times and sodomised. The victim said she yelled at them, in German: ‘No, I don’t want this.’ Then in English: ‘Listen to me, just a little bit.’

Her attackers conversed only in Arabic. Alaa Al-J. was said to be the rape ringleader. After it was over Mohammed Al-. escorted her to a toilet in the flat where he took a selfie with her on his mobile phone.

Later he and Alaa Al-J. escorted her to a nearby tram stop where they tried to stem her sobbing by saying in English: ‘Don’t cry.’…

Trump Is Completely Right About the Crisis in Sweden

A big uptick in rape is only one of their Muslim migrant problems. My latest in PJ Media:

President Trump unleashed an international storm of ridicule Saturday when he said:

Here’s the bottom line, we have to keep our country safe. When you look at what’s happening in Germany, when you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden — Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers, they’re having problems like they never thought possible.

But once again, those attacking Trump didn’t care to do their homework. The chorus was immediate and shrill. Wrote Vox:

The only problem is that nothing happened the prior night in Sweden.

Asked former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt:

Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking?

But those who are cackling today about the idiot Trump and his imaginary terror in Sweden should pause to examine some recent headlines. Trump himself tweeted:

“My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.”

And:

“Give the public a break – The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!”

On Friday night, according to Heat Street:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson interviewed documentarian Ami Horowitz about his upcoming film about violence involving migrants in Sweden. Horowitz claims that the Swedish government is downplaying an uptick in violence that followed a wave of refugee migration into the country.

[ … ]

Horowitz’s film shows a country that is deep in denial about a growing problem of migrant violence — including a sharp uptick in rape over the last five years. Horowitz claims that the increase correlates directly to Sweden’s refugee acceptance program; the country has taken in more than 190,000 Muslim immigrants in the same time frame.

The migrant violence is just part of the problem. The UK’s Express reported several weeks ago:

Sweden’s Prime Minister was brutalised in Parliament for allowing Sweden to crumble into a lawless state.

This was not hyperbole:

In February 2016, the National Criminal Investigation Service was forced to admit more than 50 areas in were now labelled as “no-go zones” as sex crimes, attacks on police, drug dealing and children carrying weapons were common occurrences.

Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city, has been so hard hit by crime and car fires, the Social Democrats demanded soldiers should be sent in to reestablish law and order.

SWEDEN-policeMalmo is Sweden’s most Muslim-dominated area. On New Year’s Eve, Muslim mobs there fired rockets at crowds and police. The Express reported in November 2016:

[M]igrant sex attacks against children in the Swedish city of Malmö could increase following a spate of incidents in broad daylight, police have warned. The city of Malmö has seen a huge rise in migrant crime in recent months.

Police spokesperson Ewa-Gun Westford explained:

Some cases concern rapes while in other cases it’s sexual molestation, and we think [this situation] could escalate. We do not want to create a rancorous atmosphere among the public but want to tread carefully. The information we have leads in a certain direction, but it is very sensitive and [these are] difficult issues for the vulnerable.

What?

The “sensitive,” “difficult” nature of fighting back against rape? Westford is referring only to the fact that Muslim migrants were perpetrating these crimes — and no one wanted to discuss the implications of that.

Even worse, Malmo is not the only place where this is happening. Last week in the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby, which has a high Muslim immigrant population, a gang of thugs attacked and brutalized three police officers on patrol, hitting them, kicking them, and throwing bottles and glass at them. This has been going on for years. In August 2014 in Rinkeby, Muslims lured police in and then ambushed them, with about 200 Muslims stoning the cops and torching cars.

And in January, two Afghan Muslim migrants kidnapped a Swedish woman and streamed their repeated rapes of her live on Facebook.

Peter Springare, a police investigator in Örebro, blamed Muslim migrants for the chaos that was engulfing Sweden:

I’m so f***** tired. What I’m writing here isn’t politically correct. But I don’t care. Our pensioners are on their knees, the schools are a mess, healthcare is an inferno, the police is completely destroyed. Everyone knows why, but no one dares or wants to say why.

When he says “no one,” the chief culprit is the establishment media.

Hard-Left Canadian reporter Doug Saunders claimed that the idea that Sweden was suffering from a rape epidemic “falls apart as soon as you speak to anyone knowledgeable in Sweden.” Saunders admitted that “Sweden does indeed have far more reported cases of sexual assault than any other country.” Then, he asserted:

[I]t’s not because Swedes — of any colour — are very criminal. It’s because they’re very feminist. In 2005, Sweden’s Social Democratic government introduced a new sex-crime law with the world’s most expansive definition of rape.

Saunders quoted Jerzy Sarnecki, whom he identified as “a criminologist at Stockholm University,” as saying:

What we’re hearing is a very, very extreme exaggeration based on a few isolated events, and the claim that it’s related to immigration is more or less not true at all….

Saudi Arabia deports 40,000 Pakistanis over jihad terror fears

Saudi Arabia is the world’s chief sponsor of jihad terrorism, but it doesn’t want it inside the Kingdom. Who knew that the House of Saud was full of racist, bigoted Islamophobes?

“Saudi Arabia ‘deports 40,000 Pakistani workers over terror fears,’” by Bethan McKernan, Independent, February 14, 2017:

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has expelled almost 40,000 Pakistani migrant workers in the last four months, local media has reported.

Over 39,000 people have been deported since October 2016 over visa violations and security concerns, the Saudi Gazette reported, citing unnamed interior ministry officials. As well as crimes including drug trafficking, forgery and theft, an unknown number of those removed from the country were suspected to have links to Isis and other extremist groups, the paper said.

The alleged mass deportations come after a year of strikes and other unrest in the kingdom due to unpaid wages following the oil market’s decline and subsequent blow to the Saudi economy.

Authorities in Saudi Arabia have used a viral party video to identify and arrest partygoers in the country.

Official Saudi statistics say that 243,000 Pakistanis were deported between 2012 – 2015. Mass deportations of migrant workers – which Human Rights Watch and other rights organisations say often involve illegal beatings and detainment in poor conditions – are fairly common….

Hungary will welcome European refugees fleeing ‘multicultural West’

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has a point: Merkel and her fellow globalist internationalists are bringing huge numbers of people into Europe who come from a culture that has a model of society and governance that is touted as superior to all others. Many of the “refugees” are coming with the goal, or determination, of replacing existing European legal systems and societal structures with ones based on Sharia. The conflict between such people and those who support the existing systems is inevitable.

The globalists have brought Europe to the brink of civil war. Why shouldn’t those who do not wish to live in a repressive socialist multicultural Sharia paradise have a refuge, just as do those punitively fleeing war in Syria?

“Orban: Hungary Will Welcome ‘European Refugees’ Fleeing Multicultural West,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, February 11, 2017:

Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban says his country will open its arms to west Europeans fleeing mass immigration and “the lords of globalist politics”.

“We shall let in true refugees”, Mr Orban told a cheering audience: “Germans, Dutch, French and Italians, terrified politicians and journalists who here in Hungary want to find the Europe they have lost in their homelands.”

The populist leader has served as the de facto leader of the central and eastern European countries which have resisted the open borders policies of the European Union (EU) and leading member-states in the west of the continent.

Globalist politicians, Mr Orban contended, are seeking to “sweep away a democracy of debate and replace it with a democracy of [political] correctness”, where “true power, decisions and influence [are] not held by elected governments, but [by] unelected global networks, media gurus and international organisations.”

He cited Britain’s vote to leave the European Union and Donald Trump’s election in the United States as episodes in a wider popular revolt against the “arrogance and condescension” of global elites by ordinary people whose “mouths had been gagged” for too long.

He claimed that history’s departure from “the course marked out for it” in 2016 “mocked the prophets of liberal politics”, who have responded as though “the people are a danger to democracy”.

“This is how the world’s most bizarre coalition of people smugglers, human rights activists and elite European politicians came into existence, specifically to deliberately bring millions of migrants into Europe,” he said….

Europeans increasingly opposed to Muslim immigration

“All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.”

This is the statement that most Europeans agree with; not that immigration from Muslim countries should be slowed or given tighter restrictions, but altogether stopped.

The survey was conducted before Trump’s executive order suspending immigration from seven Muslim countries, so that order had nothing to do with the European people’s attitude, but this sure did:

With the exception of Poland, each country was the target of a refugee crisis or terrorist attack in recent years.

Despite this fact, leftists predictably blame the so-called “far right presence” in their countries.

“Survey: Europeans Increasingly Opposed To Muslim Immigration”, by Russ Read, The Daily Caller, February 8, 2017:

A survey of citizens in ten European countries found that more than half of respondents want to stop migration from mainly Muslim countries.

The survey, conducted by the United Kingdom’s Chatham House Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), found an average of 55 percent of the 10,000 Europeans surveyed agreed with the statement: “all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.”

A majority of respondents from all but two of the countries (the U.K. and Spain) included in the survey agreed with the statement. The percentages of agreement ranged from a high of 71 percent in Poland to a low of 41 percent in Spain.

Chatham House concluded that the survey results “suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trump’s electorate in the U.S. but is fairly widespread.”

The survey was conducted before President Donald Trump’s executive order suspending immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

The think tank also found that the countries which most agreed that Muslim immigration should be stopped had “very different sized Muslim populations.” Additionally, with the exception of Poland, each country was the target of a refugee crisis or terrorist attack in recent years. Most of the states also have a far-right-wing presence in their respective political systems.

A Pew Research Center study conducted in 2016 found a majority of respondents in Hungary, Poland, Italy and Greece had an unfavorable view of Muslims in their respective countries. Only 29 percent of respondents in Germany and France shared that view.

As of 2010, the European Union was home to 13 million Muslim immigrants…..

Smuggling migrants into Europe a major funding source for ISIS

The Islamic State long ago promised to infiltrate the refugee stream. As far back as November 2015, the Islamic State claimed to have smuggled thousands of jihadists into Europe. It was also recently reported that the Islamic State “planned to infect refugee flows to the West with mass killers, and it has had some violent successes.” The CIA warned that the Islamic State’s “official strategy is to hide its operatives among refugees entering Europe and the United States via human flows out of the Middle East and North Africa.”

Western leaders opted not to take these warnings seriously. Leftists have equated responsible measures to protect homeland security with unkindness and racism. The “Islamophobia” narrative has been a useful and effective tool that now allows virtually any misdeed committed by Muslim migrants to go unnoticed or be excused, no matter how tragic the cost.

“Smuggling Migrants to Europe Now a Major Funding Source for Islamic State”, by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, February 1, 2017:

Islamist terror groups including Islamic State are now getting much of their revenue from smuggling migrants into Europe, Italy’s intelligence chief has said.

Information gathered by intelligence agencies shows that criminal gangs in Africa who work to traffick migrants into Europe have developed “partnerships” with terrorist organisations in the Middle East including Islamic State, Alessandro Pansa told La Stampa on Tuesday.

“ISIS is facing serious setbacks. Its biggest sources of income — smuggling oil products and antiquities, are at the edge of drying out. We think terrorists are resorting to human trafficking as a new source of revenue,” Pansa told the newspaper.

Pansa, the Director General of the Department of Information Security, revealed the intelligence agency’s findings at a talk in Naples about Africa and the ‘risks and opportunities’ of immigration.

Describing the involvement of Islamic terror groups in human trafficking as a major challenge for Italy, the security chief said it’s vital that Italy works with governments in Africa to “attack at the roots of the migration phenomenon”.

Reuters reported on Monday that the Italian government has set up a fund to help African nations seal their external borders and help stem the flow of migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Europe.

Pansa refused to give an opinion on actions taken by President Donald J. Trump to help protect the U.S. against terror attacks — suspending immigration of, and issuing visas to, citizens of seven countries.

However, Italy’s intelligence agencies are not surprised the new president has pushed forward with migration policies promised on the campaign trail according to the security chief, who added: “We were expecting it.”

Nearly 400,000 migrants reached Europe by sea in 2016, and more than 5,000 are believed to have died attempting the journey, aid agencies estimate.

In 2015 the then Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott, urged the European Union (EU) to turn boats back to Africa, saying: “If you want to keep life safe, you’ve got to keep the boats stopped.”….
