Palestinian Woman: Promised Land is where Jews will be exterminated by ‘divine decree’

The fallacy and the fantasy of the “peace process” fiction writers and the two-staters continue to explode in the face of reality and the religious motive behind the jihad against the Jews.

“‘Promised Land’ = Land where Jews will be exterminated,” by Itamar Marcus, Palestinian Media Watch, April 12, 2017:

When Fatah-run Awdah TV asked Palestinians about their views regarding US President Donald Trump’s “rise to power”, one woman explained that “Jews” mistakenly understand the term “the Promised Land” as “a promise to them,” however, the real promise is that Allah will “gather” and “exterminate” them:

Fatah-run Awdah TV host: “Dear viewers, our question today is: Are you optimistic about the rise to power of American President Trump?”

Palestinian woman: “We always put our hopes in Allah. This is the promised land. The Jews think it is promised to them, but what was promised was to gather them in order to exterminate them by a divine decree.”

Death knell for Freedom of Speech as Canada’s House of Commons passes ‘anti-Islamophobia’ motion

Imagine if a “right-wing extremist,” say, a white supremacist, had killed three people in London yesterday. Do you think Canada would have today passed a motion condemning a “phobia” of white supremacists?

The supporters of the Canadian bill condemning “Islamophobia” insist that it will not restrict the freedom of speech, but interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose was more realistic: she said that she was concerned that charges of “Islamophobia” would be used “to intimidate rather than to inform,” and added: “I do worry that some of my work trying to empower women and girls in Muslim communities could be branded as ‘Islamophobic’ if I criticize practices that I believe are oppressive.”

Of course she is absolutely right. That is exactly what happened to Pamela Geller and me when we held a conference about honor killing, and when we tried to run ads in Edmonton offering help to women and girls who were threatened. This “non-binding” motion will have a chilling effect on speech, and will work toward intimidating into silence anyone who dares to speak out against Canada’s suicidal refugee policies, seditious activity in mosques, Sharia oppression of women taking place in Canada, and more. If it isn’t overturned, it will lead ultimately to new and binding laws that will be the end of Canada as a free society. Establishing a particular group as beyond criticism is laying the groundwork for tyranny.

“House of Commons passes anti-Islamophobia motion,” CBC News, March 23, 2017:

The House of Commons has passed M-103, a non-binding motion condemning Islamophobia and religious discrimination.

All NDP and nearly all Liberal MPs supported the motion, which passed 201-91. The majority of Conservative MPs voted against, with leadership candidate Michael Chong and Simcoe North MP Bruce Stanton voting in favour. Mississauga Liberal MP Gagan Sikand and Barrie Conservative MP Alex Nuttall both abstained.

The vote follows months of bitter debate and a series of protests and counter-protests across the country over whether the private member’s motion would limit free speech or single out Islam for special treatment in Canadian law.

It had additional symbolic significance in the emotional aftermath of the Jan. 29 mosque shooting in Quebec City, where six Muslim men were killed.

The motion was tabled by Mississauga-Erin Mills Liberal MP Iqra Khalid on Dec. 5, 2016. She spoke to reporters after the motion passed Thursday.

“I’m really happy that the vote today has shown positive support for this motion and I’m really looking forward to the committee taking on this study,” she said.

Khalid’s motion calls on the government to do three things:

Condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination.
Quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear.
Compel the Commons heritage committee to develop a government-wide approach for reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination, including Islamophobia.

The latter would require the heritage committee to collect data on hate crime reports, conduct needs assessments for affected communities and present findings within eight months.

Liberals rejected an attempt by Saskatchewan Conservative MP David Anderson to remove the word “Islamophobia” from the motion and change the wording to “condemn all forms of systemic racism, religious intolerance and discrimination of Muslims, Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Hindus and other religious communities.

Anderson argued Islamophobia was not defined in Khalid’s motion, and that its inclusion contributed to widespread confusion and fears about the effect on freedom of speech….

Muslims hack man to death for atheist post on Facebook

Blasphemy laws are encoded in the Sharia, which Muslims consider to be divine law. If a government does not impose a death sentence for blasphemy, an individual Muslim might decide to step in as judge and executioner, if he believes that in doing so, he is serving and protecting the name of Allah.

(Quran 6:93) – “Who can be more wicked than one who invent a lie against Allah?” If the death penalty is prescribed for lesser crime, then it stands to reason that it should be imposed for the most “wicked”.

One unfortunate atheist in India has been “executed” for blasphemy by a group of Muslims in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, a predominately Hindu state with about 15 times as many Hindus as Muslims:

Farook was administering a WhatsApp group where he posted rationalistic views against his religion. He also posted rationalistic messages on his Facebook page which came in for criticism by members of the community.

For this, Farook was hacked to death by a “four-member gang.”

“Tamil Nadu man hacked to death over atheistic FB posts”, Times of India, March 18, 2017:

COIMBATORE: H Farook, 31, from Bilal Estate in South Ukkadam here, was hacked to death by a four-member gang, late Thursday night. He was a member of Dravidar Viduthalai Kazhagam (DVK), and an atheist. According to police, Farook was administering a WhatsApp group where he posted rationalistic views against his religion. He also posted rationalistic messages on his Facebook page which came in for criticism by members of the community.

Meanwhile, Ansath, 30, a Muslim realtor, surrendered before the judicial magistrate court -V on Friday evening in connection with the murder.

“Farook’s anti-Muslim sentiments had angered people…..

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Strategic Plan For America – Court Document

The following is the official document from a 1991 meeting which outlines the Muslim Brotherhood‘s strategic goals for North America. The document was entered as evidence in the 2008 Holyland Terror Funding Trial. Federal investigators found the document in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States.

The original document in Arabic follows the English translation.

We have highlighted in yellow the following quotes which are of particular significance. The page numbers noted below correspond to the page numbers in the center of the bottom of each page in the document).

“Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is.”

Page 5:

“…the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry out [sic] this grand mission as a ‘Civilization Jihadist’ responsibility.”

Page 7:

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD: AN EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM

ISIS on Christian killing spree in Sinai

Sinai Christians have become a target for the Islamic State, which is now “waging an insurgency against the Egyptian government in Sinai” and “has turned to targeting Christian civilians after suffering setbacks in its confrontation with the army.”

On February 19, ISIS released a video threatening attacks on Christians as a follow-up to its December bombing of St. Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, which killed 28 people. The video described Christians as “infidels” and enemies of Islam.

The video included a masked man who shouted the words: “Oh crusaders in Egypt, this attack that struck you in your temple is just the first with many more to come, God willing.”

Here we see the same propaganda about “crusaders” against Islam, when it was the Islamic Arab invaders who conquered Egypt by bloody force in the 7th century.

“I am not going to wait for death,” Rami Mina, who left Arish on Friday morning, said by telephone. “I shut down my restaurant and got out of there. These people are ruthless.”

Where are Western nations to help innocent, non-threatening Christian refugees who are being singled out for slaughter by the Islamic State?

“Egypt’s Christians flee Sinai amid Islamic State killing spree”, By Ahmed Aboulenein, Reuters, February 24, 2017:

Christian families and students fled Egypt’s North Sinai province in droves on Friday after Islamic State killed the seventh member of their community in just three weeks.

A Reuters reporter saw 25 families gathered with their belongings in the Suez Canal city of Ismailia’s Evangelical Church and church officials said 100 families, out of around 160 in North Sinai, were fleeing. More than 200 students studying in Arish, the province’s capital, have also left.

Seven Christians have been killed in Arish between Jan. 30 and Thursday. Islamic State, which is waging an insurgency there, claimed responsibility for the killings, five of which were shootings. One man was beheaded and another set on fire.

“I am not going to wait for death,” Rami Mina, who left Arish on Friday morning, said by telephone. “I shut down my restaurant and got out of there. These people are ruthless.”

Sectarian attacks occur often in Egypt but are usually confined to home burning, crop razing, attacks on churches, and forced displacement.

Arish residents said militants circulated death lists online and on the streets, warning Christians to leave or die.

“My father is the second name on their list; anyone Christian they put on the list” Munir Adel, a vegetable seller who fled on Friday, said as he huddled with four family members at the Evangelical Church, waiting for church officials to find them a place to stay.

Adel’s parents did not leave Arish because of their old age, he said. “They could be killed at any moment.”

VIDEO THREAT

Islamic State released a video on Sunday threatening Egypt’s Christians and vowing to escalate a campaign against them after it bombed a chapel adjoining Cairo’s St Mark’s Cathedral, the seat of the Coptic papacy, in December, killing 28 people.

“Oh crusaders in Egypt, this attack that struck you in your temple is just the first with many more to come, God willing,” said a masked man in battle-dress the group said blew himself up in the chapel.

Orthodox Copts, who comprise about 10 percent of Egypt’s 90 million people, are the Middle East’s largest Christian community. They have long complained of persecution.

The Coptic Orthodox Church denounced “the recurring terrorist incidents in North Sinai targeting Christian citizens” in a statement on Friday.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi told military and police chiefs “to completely eradicate terrorism in northern Sinai and defeat any attempts to target civilians or to undermine the unity of the national fabric”, in reference to the killings, his office said on Thursday.

Egypt is battling an insurgency that gained pace in 2013 after its military, led by Sisi, overthrew President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed.

Major General Mostafa al-Razaz, North Sinai’s deputy police chief, said security forces were capable of handling the “crisis” and that they added more patrols and checkpoints.

But Sinai’s Christians say security forces on the ground are unable to protect them and are overwhelmed by the militants.

“The government does nothing. There is no security in Sinai, they can’t even protect themselves,” said Adel…..

Can I Criticize Islam Without Fearing for My Life?

A brave ex-Muslim woman confronts a murderous Toronto imam. My latest in PJ Media:

At a Toronto mosque, an imam recently prayed that Allah would kill unbelievers “and spare not one of them,” and “purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews.”

An ex-Muslim named Sandra Solomon showed up at that mosque Saturday with some requests of her own:

I am standing here in your mosque today, asking for you to show me the tolerance you ask of all Canadians. To accept me for whom I am and the free choices I made to be something other than Muslim.

I have concern about my life and I would love to get an answer from you Muslims to tell me: Am I going to be killed, or my child is going to be killed or harmed by anyway for me openly criticizing Islam?

It was a fair question, and a poignant one coming at a time when the Canadian Parliament is considering a motion condemning an undefined “Islamophobia.” While Canada mulls officially designating Muslims as a victim class, Sandra Solomon is worried about being victimized by those supposed victims.

CIJ News reported:

“[A] member of the mosque congregation said to Sandra that she is free to choose her faith emphasizing that her problem is not with Islam but with the Saudi regime.”

This was, unfortunately, not true. We may surmise this from how Islamic tradition records Muhammad himself dealing with criticism.

Abu Afak was a poet who was over one hundred years old, and he had mocked Muhammad in his verses. Muhammad asked the “companions” (sahaba), his closest followers: “Who will avenge me on this scoundrel?” One of the companions murdered Abu Afak in his sleep.

Likewise with another poet who mocked him, Asma bint Marwan. Muhammad cried out: “Will no one rid me of this daughter of Marwan?” One of the companions, Umayr ibn Adi, went to her house that night, where he found her sleeping next to her children. The youngest, a nursing babe, was in her arms. But that didn’t stop Umayr from murdering her and the baby as well.

Muhammad commended him:

You have done a great service to Allah and His Messenger, Umayr! (Ibn Ishaq, 674-676)

Then there was Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf. Muhammad again asked his companions: “Who is willing to kill Ka’b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?” One of the Sahaba, Muhammad bin Maslama, answered: “O Allah’s Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?”

Muhammad said that he would.

Muhammad bin Maslama said: “Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab).” Muhammad responded: “You may say it.” Muhammad bin Maslama duly lied to Ka’b, luring him into his trap, and murdered him. (Bukhari 5.59.369)

In light of such accounts, Sandra Solomon has every reason to be concerned, and Canadian authorities would do well to worry also. What are the implications of allowing into North America large numbers of people who don’t believe in the freedom of expression, an indispensable prerequisite of any free society? No Canadian or American authorities appear to be considering that question.

Nor are they pondering the fact that the Toronto mosque member was wrong when he said that Sandra Solomon was “free to choose her faith.” In reality, the death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an:

They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper. (Qur’an 4:89)

A hadith depicts Muhammad saying:

Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him. (Bukhari 9.84.57)

The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, even today. Both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated:

The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-‘ashriyyah, Al-Ja’fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.

Qaradawi also once famously said:

If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today….

Sudanese Muslim migrant wanted to start ISIS sleeper cell in Virginia

Sudan was one of the seven countries on Trump’s ban list. But no, it is very very important that the U.S. show that it wasn’t “racist” and “Islamophobic” by bringing in Mahmoud Elhassan. Note also that :as soon as he came to the United States” he began looking for fellow jihadis. Impressive vetting process!

“Sudanese immigrant wanted to start a ‘sleeper cell’ for Islamic State,” by Rachel Weiner, Washington Post, February 23, 2017:

As soon as he came to the United States, according to court documents, Mahmoud Elhassan was looking for supporters of Islamist terrorism groups.

“One of our forgotten prisoners,” the 25-year-old wrote on Facebook of a man convicted in a bombing plot. “I wished to work with him one day, but the 1st day I came to the states I found that the disbelievers imprisoned him.”

In 2014, Elhassan messaged a radical Sudanese cleric, saying, “here with you is a sleeper cell.” He asked to be connected to like-minded young men, saying, “I am feeling that I am alone and I don’t have anyone but the brothers on the internet.”

But the supposed ally the cleric found for Elhassan was actually an FBI informant. When he tried to help another man, Joseph Farrokh, travel to Syria, both were arrested and eventually pleaded guilty to terrorism-related charges. Elhassan will be sentenced Friday in federal court in Alexandria.

Elhassan, who lived in Woodbridge, admitted that he drove Farrokh to the airport in Richmond and then lied to agents about his friend’s plans. At first he appeared to be an accessory to Farrokh’s plans. However, prosecutors now say Elhassan was the instigator, having radicalized far before the two met. Before his sentencing, Farrokh wrote in court filings that his allegiance to the Islamic State was shallow and brief, spurred by personal problems. He was sentenced to 8½ years in prison….

The Third Jihad — Episode 6: Religious Persecution

We are excited to send you an advance copy of episode 6 of our film series The Third Jihad.

In episode 6, Religious Persecution, Clarion Project investigates radical Islam’s intolerance of other religions and their genocidal intent towards Christians, Jews and other faiths of the world.

Previous episodes can be seen here.

In 2007, Clarion Project completed this landmark film highlighting radical Islamists’ engagement in a “multifaceted strategy to overcome the Western world,” waging a “cultural jihad” to “infiltrate and undermine our society from within.”

On the film’s 10th anniversary you will be astounded at how accurately we predicted the future, in a world where radical Islam was allowed to flourish, in a world where political correctness silenced Islamist detractors and in a world where ‘cultural sensibilities’ trumped free speech.

Week by week we will unfold the story of radical Islam, unveiling its historic, cultural, religious and militant roots and show how they manifest themselves in today’s society.

As ever, we would ask two things from you: Please send us your comments and please share this video with as many people as you can.

President Trump warns ISIS specifically targeting Jews, Christians and ‘peaceful Muslims’

President Trump is obviously correct. Yet rather than support a logical approach to defend the free society that has attracted immigrants worldwide, including from Islamic states and majority-Muslim countries, leftists attack the Trump policy of strengthening America, and work to enable its Islamic supremacist and jihadist enemies.

America is built on the Judeo-Christian principle of human rights. The battle against Islamic supremacy must be fought for the survival of free societies.

“Trump Celebrates America’s Faith-Based Foundation, Vows to Defend Religious Values”, by Charlie Spierling, Breitbart, February 2, 2017:

President Donald Trump praised America’s faith-based values, vowing to defend them from an increasingly dangerous world, in a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday.

“America will thrive as long as we continue to have faith in each other and faith in God,” Trump said. “That faith in God has inspired men and women to sacrifice for the needy, to deploy to wars overseas, and lock arms at home to ensure equal rights for every man, woman, and child in our land.”

He vowed to protect religious liberty in America, specifically promising to get rid of the Johnson Amendment, which prevents churches and faith-based organizations from endorsing and opposing political candidates.

“Our republic was formed on the basis that freedom is not a gift from government, but that freedom is a gift from God,” Trump said.

But Trump warned that Islamic State terrorists were specifically targeting Christians and “peaceful Muslims.” He also mentioned that the Jewish people were under attack from terrorists.

“The world is in trouble, but we’re going to straighten it out. That’s what I do,” Trump said. “I fix things. We’re going the straighten it out. Believe me.”

The president paid tribute to slain Navy SEAL Mark Owens and quoted John 15:13 to recognize his sacrifice. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” he said.

Trump also used his speech to defend his decision to restrict refugees and immigration from seven high-risk Middle East countries, calling it a “necessary” step to prevent opponents of American values from entering the country.

“We will not allow a beachhead of intolerance to spread in our nation,” he said, promising to develop an immigration system to only allow people into the country who would share American values.

“In the coming days, we will develop a system to help ensure that those admitted into our country fully embrace our values of religious and personal liberty and that they reject any form of oppression and discrimination,” Trump said. “We want people to come into our nation, but we want people to love us and to love our values, not to hate us and to hate our values.”

Trump spoke about his mother, who raised him with faith, and he explained that personal wealth fails to bring true happiness…..

Student gets deluge of death threats for ‘anti-Islam’ art project

It’s really more of an atheist art project than an “anti-Islam” art project, and the term “art project” is used quite loosely in this case, but anyway, Muslims are enraged. It is good to see that the university is standing up for her. Probably in the U.S., she would be expelled and have to go into hiding.

“Israeli Student Gets Deluge of Death Threats Over Anti-Islam Art Project,” by Benedict Spence, Heat Street, January 12, 2017:

An Israeli student has received death threats after submitting an art project criticizing Islam – but was defended by her university, which stood up for her freedom of speech.

The unnamed student, who attends Haifa university, 60 miles north of Tel Aviv, handed in a Muslim prayer may [sic] with the words “God is dead; keep praying” painted over it.

The project sparked a furious reaction from Muslim peers, who posed photos of the piece online, which had previously only been shown to a few other students.

According to local news site Ynetnews.com, sharing the image led to a deluge of death threats, which led her to go to the police.

She said: “I got a lot of support, except for two students who photographed what I was presenting without my approval.

“They gave the piece a completely different interpretation. I received death threats and messages from people who said they wanted to kill me.”

She added “in everyday life, when you describe someone without pity, you say ‘you don’t have God’. I meant ISIS, which doesn’t believe religion is morality.”

Another student, however, told Ynetnews “[she] wanted to receive attention by harming religion. It’s unacceptable to write things like this. To write that God is dead really harms us.”…

How? Why do you care what she thinks?
