Iran decries President ‘cowboy’ Trump’s ‘ignorant hate speech’ at the United Nations

The Islamic Republic of Iran and the international Left both term honest discussion of the jihad threat and determination to counter it “hate speech.”

President Trump speaking to the United Nations.

“Iran Lashes Out at ‘Cowboy’ Trump After U.N. Speech,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 20, 2017:

Senior Iranian leaders verbally attacked President Donald Trump late Tuesday and early Wednesday following his first United Nations address, in which the U.S. president harshly criticized Iran for its support of global terror operations, according to regional reports….

In brief remarks to reporters following a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Trump said, “I have decided” on whether to designate Iran in violation of the nuclear deal, a move that would set the wheels in motion for the United States to leave the agreement and reimpose tough sanctions on Tehran.

When pressed on the issue, Trump smiled and said, “I’ll let you know what the decision is.”…

“We won’t chicken out for cowboy-like acts of Trump,” Brig. Gen. Seyyed Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces, was quoted as saying on Tuesday in reaction to Trump’s U.N. speech, which singled out Iran and its nuclear program as a chief global threat.

Trump’s “remarks recount how the weak and incapable government of the U.S. has fallen in melancholy after keeping the dream of being the world’s superpower,” Jazayeri was quoted as saying in Iran’s state-controlled media….

“For facing a country whose president overtly and blatantly shouts at the lectern of the U.N. that it would ‘totally destroy’ with its military power, no option is left but to strengthen the defensive infrastructures,” he said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani offered similar remarks, telling reporters that Iran would “be victorious” in any outcome, even if Trump moves to end the nuclear agreement.

“Iran will be victorious, regardless of what happens” with the nuclear deal, Rouhani said. “If the U.S. backs out of the deal, they will suffer loss and if they remain committed, they will sow benefits. We are ready for any situation and there is no obstacle to our advance toward our objectives.”

Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, said that Iran is already moving to enhance its military capabilities and face down the United States.

“Time is now ripe for correcting the U.S. miscalculations,” Jafari was quoted as saying after Trump’s speech. “Now that the U.S. has fully displayed its nature, the government should use all its options to defend the Iranian nation’s interests.”

“Taking a decisive position against Trump is just the start and what is strategically important is that the U.S. should witness more painful responses in the actions, behavior, and decisions that Iran will take in the next few months,” he said….

“A person who takes the presidential office with deception and undemocratic behavior, will be unable to differentiate between delivering speech in the United Nations from the rough American football.” Hamid Aboutalebi, a senior Rohani [sic] aide tweeted.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, the main official who helped cement the nuclear agreement, described Trump’s remarks as “ignorant hate speech” on his Twitter feed.

Two Afghan Muslim migrants rape 16-year-old girl on city street

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.

“Two Afghans Arrested for Raping 16-Year-Old on German City Street,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, September 19, 2017 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Two Afghan asylum seekers were arrested for the brutal rape, and a third for attempted rape, of a 16-year-old girl in the Bavarian town of Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn just south of Munich.

The pair of asylum seekers, aged 27 and 17, are said to have met the girl on Friday night along with others who gathered in front of a local asylum shelter. The pair, along with an 18-year-old Afghan male, walked the girl to a nearby train station where the 27-year-old and 17-year-old took turns raping her, Der Spiegel reports.

The 18-year-old Afghan asylum seeker also attempted to rape the girl but before he could a local resident appeared and scared the three migrants away.

Shortly after the incident, police engaged in a major search for the suspects deploying a helicopter on the scene. The men were arrested shortly thereafter.

The 16-year-old victim of the attack suffered injuries but was not hospitalised as a result of the assault.

The rape is the latest in Bavaria after a number of high-profile sex attacks in the last several months. Last month, a 47-year-old from Afghanistan was sentenced to a 15-month suspended term by a court in Augsburg after he was found guilty of sexually abusing multiple children, some of which were as young as five….

Ex-Muslim Christian apologist Nabeel Qureshi dies at age 34

Nabeel Qureshi was that rarest of things today: an honest man. A man who would pursue the truth no matter where it took him, and no matter what the cost.

I didn’t know him well. I had the honor of meeting him in Ohio in 2009, at Pamela Geller’s rally for his fellow ex-Muslim, Rifqa Bary. He was true then, and consistent.

May his memory be eternal.

“Nabeel Qureshi Dies at Age 34,” CBN News, September 16, 2017:

Ex-Muslim turned Christian apologist, Nabeel Qureshi, passed away Saturday after a year-long battle with stomach cancer.

The 34-year-old left behind a wife and two-year-old daughter.

The very man who led Nabeel to Christ, David Wood, announced his death on Twitter saying, “My beloved bother Nabeel, rest in peace and joy with the Risen Lord Jesus Christ.”

Qureshi was born and raised in the United States to a devout Pakistani Muslim family.

“My earliest memories are of my mother everyday sitting me next to her and having me put on my skull cap and showing me how to recite the Qur’an letter by letter. I finished the Qur’an when I was five-years-old,” Qureshi explains in a video about his journey to Christ.

He also learned how to defend the doctrines of his Muslim faith and would often challenge non-believers to debates during his time in school.

Qureshi finally met his match when he attended Old Dominion University in Virginia and met David Wood. He challenged Wood’s Christian faith when he saw him reading a Bible by himself. Thus began a two and a half year period where the pair challenged each other on the doctrines of their faiths.

Eventually, Qureshi realized his arguments for Islam crumbled under the evidence for Christ’s death, burial, resurrection, and divinity.

“At the end of my research, the arguments for and against Islam still hung in the balance, but one thing was abundantly clear: they were far from approaching the strength of the case for Christianity,” Qureshi said.

But it wasn’t just the physical evidence that convinced Qureshi. He had three prophetic dreams about Christ that eventually won him over.

Qureshi accepted Christ as his savior and faced the difficult task of telling his parents.

‘When my parents did find out it was probably the most painful day of my life,” Qureshi said. “To have Christ in my life makes every loss worth it.

He went on to study Christian Apologetics at Biola University, while also getting his medical degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School. He later completed a degree in religion at Duke University and entered a phD program in New Testament studies at Oxford University. Qureshi also became an itinerant speaker with Ravi Zacharias’ International Ministry.

Qureshi published three books, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity, and Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward, and No God but One: Allah of Jesus? A Former Muslim Investigates the evidence for Islam and Christianity.

Qureshi made the official announcement of his cancer diagnosis August 2016.

“This is an announcement that I never expected to make, but God in his infinite and sovereign wisdom has chosen me for this refining, and I pray he will be glorified through my body and my spirit. My family and I have received the news that I had advanced stomach cancer and the prognosis is quite grim,” he said in a Facebook post….

90% of asylum seekers end up on welfare

Surprised? Don’t be. Thought that the Muslim migrants were coming to Europe to serve as a work force for the aging population? Don’t be naive. Non-Muslims paying for the upkeep of Muslims is a Qur’anic dictate:

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).

The caliph Umar said the jizya payments from the dhimmis were the source of the Muslims’ livelihood:

“Narrated Juwairiya bin Qudama at-Tamimi: We said to `Umar bin Al-Khattab, ‘O Chief of the believers! Advise us.’ He said, ‘I advise you to fulfill Allah’s Convention (made with the Dhimmis) as it is the convention of your Prophet and the source of the livelihood of your dependents (i.e. the taxes from the Dhimmis.)’” (Bukhari 4.53.388)

Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:

“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”

“90 Per Cent Of Asylum Seekers In Austria End Up On Welfare,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, September 16, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Austrian Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka is resisting EU efforts to increase his country’s migrant quota, claiming that 90 per cent of asylum seekers in Austria end up on welfare benefits and strain the system.

The Austrian Interior Minister once again railed at attempts by the European Union to send more migrants to Austria, saying that the vast majority end up claiming benefits, Kronen Zeitung reports.Sobotka says “Austria has borne the main load from 2014 to 2017. Our system is simply overwhelmed,”

Sobotka says “Austria has borne the main load from 2014 to 2017,” and “Our system is simply overwhelmed”.

He added: “If you look at the asylum seekers, you can see that 90 percent are migrating to the needs-oriented minimum security system,” and said it was still of great importance to maintain border security.

“We had up to 15,000 refugees per day on some days, today it is an average of 30.

“It is important to keep the pressure on those who bring migrants illegally to Europe via the Mediterranean and in other ways.” he added saying that if the European Union fails to keep up the pressure it will be a sign for people smugglers who will double their efforts to smuggle more migrants into Europe.

He warned that if the European Union fails to keep up the pressure it will send a signal to people-smugglers, who will double their efforts to bring more migrants into Europe.

The EU’s migrant redistribution plan has been controversial in many countries, and some like Hungary and Poland have rejected the plan entirely. Hungary held a referendum on the issue last year in which the vast majority of Hungarians voted to reject the proposal as well.

Hungary and Slovakia made an appeal to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) claiming that the distribution agreement was invalid as it did not have unanimous consent from member states and their citizens.

The ECJ rejected the appeal last week, but both Hungary and Poland have maintained that they will still refuse to take in migrants.

Facebook lists ‘Jew-hater’ as category for advertisers

This is no surprise, since Facebook is rushing to censor anything critical of Islam. Islamic Jew-hatred: it’s in the Quran. And since it is in the Quran, no one should be shocked that it shows up now on sharia Facebook.

“Facebook listed ‘Jew-hater’ as category for advertisers,” JTA, September 15, 2017:

(JTA) — A news site was able to target ads at Facebook users who expressed interest in “Jew hater” and “how to burn Jews.”

ProPublica, an investigative site, reported Thursday that Facebook’s advertisement algorithms generated categories including “Jew hater,” “How to burn jews,” and “History of ‘why jews ruin the world.’”

Facebook removed the categories after being alerted to their existence and said it would seek to prevent such categories from popping up for potential advertisers. Later Friday, Facebook said in a statement to JTA that it would remove “self-reported” categories — those generated by users, as opposed to those generated by the company — “until we have the right processes in place to help prevent this issue.”

The categories on their own were too small to justify an ad buy, according to the Facebook system, so ProPublica added as targets the SS and the Nazi Party, available on Facebook’s generated list as “employers,” and the National Democratic Party of Germany, a current far right political party in Germany.

ProPublica paid $30 for three targeted posts, which reached 5,897 people….

Czech President: ‘Islamic terror could have its European base in Bosnia’

For years, I warned of the catastrophic consequences of President Bill Clinton’s regional Islamic nation-building, aiding and abetting the Bosnian Muslims against the Christian Serbs. Like President Carter backing the Ayatollah Khomeini against the pro-American Shah, the consequences of aiding and abetting Islamic movements are catastrophic.

CZECH PRESIDENT : “ISLAMIC TERROR COULD HAVE ITS EUROPEAN BASE IN BOSNIA”

Czech President Milos Zeman has again warned that victory over Islamic State in the Middle East could provoke “metastases of terrorism in Europe.”

Source: Beta 

Zeman also assessed that Islamic terrorism could create its own European base in Bosnia – as black flags of Islamic State already fly there, Beta reported on Friday.

“There is an illusion that Islamic State is weakening as it is losing territory. The cancer (of Islamic terrorism) has its own metastases, and they are just as deadly as the tumor itself. I recently warned of the phenomenon of foreign fighters, who after the fall of ISIS can move to Afghanistan, to create a new Islamic State, and also – and with this I have infuriated many politicians – they can create a European base, for example, in Bosnia, because even now, black ISIS flags fly in some Bosnian towns,” Zeman told private TV Barrandov last night, in his regular weekly interview.

Zeman recalled that during the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, Muslim fighters from abroad rushed to the aid of what he referred to as “the so-called Bosniaks, meaning, Muslims.”

“That means there is a certain risk of a European base of Islamic terrorism being created,” the Czech president said of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Zeman added that frequent attacks on tourist destinations in Europe made him fear that Islamic terrorists could pay attention to the tourist heart of the Czech Republic, the capital Prague, which has so far been spared, and recommended that city authorities tighten security measures, as he has ordered to be done in the presidential Castle Hradcany.

Twitter Flags Saying ‘Islam Is NOT a Religion of Peace’ as Possible ‘Hateful Conduct’

I was simply repeating what the major schools of Sunni jurisprudence teach. My latest in PJ Media:

A few weeks ago I noticed that the hashtag #ConfessYourUnpopularOpinion was trending on Twitter. So I thought I would have a little fun, posted the tweet below, and forgot about it — until this weekend, when I received this email warning me that the tweet was being evaluated for possible violation of Twitter’s “hateful conduct policy”:

“We are sending you this notification to allow you to evaluate it,” said Twitter.

All right. Let’s do that.

I could quote violent passages from the Qur’an, but those might be waved away with the dismissive and erroneous claim that the Bible contains similar exhortations to violence. Let’s focus instead on what Islamic authorities say — because one should get the impression that Islam is not a religion of peace from the authoritative sources in Sunni Islam, the schools of Sunni jurisprudence (madhahib).

Shafi’i school

A Shafi’i manual of Islamic law that was certified in 1991 by the clerics at Al-Azhar University — one of the leading authorities in the Islamic world — as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy stipulates about jihad that:

[T]he caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians … until they become Muslim or pay the non-Muslim poll tax.

It adds a comment by Sheikh Nuh Ali Salman, a Jordanian expert on Islamic jurisprudence: the caliph wages this war only:

… provided that he has first invited [Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians] to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya) … while remaining in their ancestral religions. ( ‘Umdat al-Salik, o9.8).

Of course, there is no caliph today, unless one believes the claims of the Islamic State, and hence the oft-repeated claim that ISIS, et al are waging jihad illegitimately, as no state authority has authorized their jihad. But they explain their actions in terms of defensive jihad, which needs no state authority to call it, and becomes “obligatory for everyone” (‘Umdat al-Salik, o9.3) if a Muslim land is attacked.

The end of the defensive jihad, however, is not peaceful coexistence with non-Muslims as equals: ‘Umdat al-Salik specifies that the warfare against non-Muslims must continue until “the final descent of Jesus.” After that?

“ [N]othing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent” (o9.8).

Hanafi school

A Hanafi manual of Islamic law repeats the same injunctions. It insists that people must be called to embrace Islam before being fought, “because the Prophet so instructed his commanders, directing them to call the infidels to the faith.” It emphasizes that jihad must not be waged for economic gain, but solely for religious reasons. From the call to Islam:

… the people will hence perceive that they are attacked for the sake of religion, and not for the sake of taking their property, or making slaves of their children, and on this consideration it is possible that they may be induced to agree to the call, in order to save themselves from the troubles of war.

However:

“[I]f the infidels, upon receiving the call, neither consent to it nor agree to pay capitation tax [jizya], it is then incumbent on the Muslims to call upon God for assistance, and to make war upon them, because God is the assistant of those who serve Him, and the destroyer of His enemies, the infidels, and it is necessary to implore His aid upon every occasion; the Prophet, moreover, commands us so to do.” (Al-Hidayah, II.140)

Maliki school

Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406), a pioneering historian and philosopher, was also a Maliki legal theorist. In his renowned Muqaddimah, the first work of historical theory, he notes:

[I]n the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.

In Islam, the person in charge of religious affairs is concerned with “power politics,” because Islam is “under obligation to gain power over other nations.”

Hanbali school

The great medieval theorist of what is commonly known today as radical or fundamentalist Islam, Ibn Taymiyya (Taqi al-Din Ahmad Ibn Taymiyya, 1263-1328), was a Hanbali jurist. He directed:

[S]ince lawful warfare is essentially jihad and since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way of this aim must be fought.

This is also taught by modern-day scholars of Islam.

Majid Khadduri was an Iraqi scholar of Islamic law of international renown. In his book War and Peace in the Law of Islam, which was published in 1955 and remains one of the most lucid and illuminating works on the subject, Khadduri says this about jihad:

The state which is regarded as the instrument for universalizing a certain religion must perforce be an ever expanding state. The Islamic state, whose principal function was to put God’s law into practice, sought to establish Islam as the dominant reigning ideology over the entire world. … The jihad was therefore employed as an instrument for both the universalization of religion and the establishment of an imperial world state. (P. 51)

Imran Ahsan Khan Nyazee is an assistant professor on the Faculty of Shari’ah and Law of the International Islamic University in Islamabad. In his 1994 book The Methodology of Ijtihad, he quotes 12th century Maliki jurist Ibn Rushd:

Muslim jurists agreed that the purpose of fighting with the People of the Book … is one of two things: it is either their conversion to Islam or the payment of jizyah.

Nyazee concludes:

This leaves no doubt that the primary goal of the Muslim community, in the eyes of its jurists, is to spread the word of Allah through jihad, and the option of poll-tax [jizya] is to be exercised only after subjugation [of non-Muslims].

All this makes it clear that there is abundant reason to believe that Islam is indeed inherently violent.

It would be illuminating if Twitter produced some quotations from Muslim authorities they consider “authentic,” and explained why the authorities I’ve quoted above and others like them are inauthentic. While in reality there is no single Muslim authority who can proclaim what is “authentic” Islam, and thus it would be prudent not to make sweeping statements about what “authentic Islam” actually is, clearly there are many Muslims who believe that authentic Islam is inherently violent and not a “Religion of Peace.”…

Brooklyn Muslim: ‘Then we will go to FBI headquarters, kill the FBI people’

Apparently Akhror Saidakhmetov didn’t get the memo on how the FBI steadfastly refuses to acknowledge the motivating ideology behind the jihad threat, falsely claims that “right-wing extremists” are as much or more of a violent threat than jihadis, and apparently tried to get foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression murdered. If he had known all that, he might have had a better sense of who his friends were.

Akhror Saidakhmetov

Akhror Saidakhmetov is a resident of Brooklyn.

“Man arrested in Villa Park, charged with fundraising for ISIS fighters,” by Jason Meisner, Chicago Tribune, September 1, 2017:

A 31-year-old truck driver living in west suburban Villa Park was arrested by the FBI on Thursday on charges out of New York that alleged he raised money in 2015 to help send fighters from the U.S. to ISIS fronts in Syria.

At a hearing in federal court in Chicago, prosecutors asked that Dilshod Khusanov, a native of Uzbekistan, be detained as a flight risk and danger to the community.

He would then be taken to Brooklyn to face the two-count indictment charging him with conspiring and attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State and a second terrorist organization, al-Nusrah Front. Each count carries a maximum of 15 years in prison if convicted….

According to a release from the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn, Khusanov was part of a cell of “like-minded individuals” seeking to aid ISIS and al-Nusrah Front in Syria.

Four other members of the support group, as well as two people who allegedly tried to travel to Syria to join ISIS fighters, have already pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy, according to prosecutors.

The investigation began when one of Khusanov’s co-conspirators, Abdurasul Juraboev, posted on an Uzbek-language website that he wished to martyr himself on U.S. soil, possibly by assassinating then-President Barack Obama, according to prosecutors.

Another co-conspirator, Akhror Saidakhmetov, was arrested in February 2015 at Kennedy International Airport as he attempted to travel to Turkey and then Syria “for the purpose of waging violent jihad on behalf of ISIS,” according to the charges.

Khusanov helped fund those efforts by providing his own money and promising to raise other funds to help pay Saidakhmetov’s travel expenses, prosecutors alleged….

In one conversation from November 2014, Saidakhmetov talked about joining the U.S. military as an ISIS spy, according to a criminal complaint. When Juraboev criticized that plan, Saidakhmetov responded he could always just “open fire on American soldiers and kill as many of them as possible,” the complaint alleged.

Two months later, Saidakhmetov was recorded by an FBI informant talking about another plan to secure an automatic weapon and shoot a police officer, the complaint alleged.

“Boom … then we will take his gun, bullets and a bulletproof vest (and) do the same with a couple of others,” Saidakhmetov allegedly said. “Then we will go to FBI headquarters, kill the FBI people.”

Church accused of being ‘anti-Muslim’ for not allowing Qur’an studies

Which mosques in Wales host Bible studies? Right, none. Which are accused of being “anti-Christian”? Right, none.

“Church denies being ‘anti-Muslim’ after group barred from using Caernarfon hall for Koran studies,” by Hywel Trewyn, Daily Post, September 2, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A Christian church has been accused of a “lack of unity” after it rejected a Muslim group’s bid to hold Koran studies in its hall.

A group of Muslims wanted to use the Feed My Lambs church hall – a former infant school – for “Koran and cultural studies”, and they had already used it twice.

But after initially being allowed to hire the space, their cheque for hiring it again was returned to them.

Today, the Church in Wales said the hall – which was part-funded by Heritage Lottery money – was available for “secular” activities.

But Kenny Khan, the councillor representing the Muslim group – said the decision was disappointing and seemed like a backwards step.

‘I was very clear that they were Muslims’

He added: “It was all explained clearly to the church that it was for religious and cultural classes.

“I was very clear that they were Muslims. There was no ambiguity.”

Three days after their first meeting, Cllr Khan received a phone call from Llanbeblig Rector, the Reverend Roger Donaldson who, although not party to the arrangement, said there had been “a misunderstanding” and that they couldn’t accept the cheque for £320, which was sent to Llanbeblig Parochial Church Council.

Mr Khan – who is not Muslim himself – added: “Christians and Muslims joined together in Bangor after the Manchester bombing.

“The church knew it was going to be used for cultural classes.

“Two men from the church came into the hall to collect the cheque and actually saw the congregation praying on their mats.

“These people pay local taxes. The hall has been Lottery-funded and is for the use of the community. They’ve accepted the cheque and something has happened.”

But Rev Donaldson told the Daily Post there had been a “misunderstanding”, and that it was initially thought the group were looking to use the hall for bible studies.

He said: “The understanding was they were going to hold ‘bible readings’.

“We are not against Islam; no way. Everybody has the right to worship as they please.

“We are not against colour or race. It was just not possible. There has been a breakdown in our public relations.”

In a further statement issued today by the Church in Wales, Reverend Donaldson said: “Feed My Lambs is used for Christian worship and is considered to be a place of worship….
