Bipartisan Bill to Counter ‘Palestinian’ Textbooks That ‘Demonize Israel’ Introduced in Congress

Members of Congress are considering a bill that’s supported by both Republicans and Democrats that will review textbooks used by “Palestinians” that call for jihad against the Jews and that further an anti-Israel sentiment.

Rep. David Young, a Republican from Iowa, introduced the bill, entitled the “Palestinian Authority Educational Curriculum Transparency Act.”

It calls for the State Department to step in and take a closer look at these types of textbooks.

The Algemeiner has more:

Members of Congress have brought forward a bipartisan bill to review textbooks and other materials used in Palestinian schools that have been accused of promoting extremism.

The Palestinian Authority Educational Curriculum Transparency Act — introduced in the House of Representatives on Thursday by Rep. David Young (R-Iowa) — calls on the US State Department to annually verify whether educational resources published by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the United Nations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip continue to encourage “violence or intolerance toward other nations or ethnic groups.”

The bill notes that despite being reformed in 2016 and 2017, Palestinian curriculums for grades 1 through 11 “fail to meet the international standards of peace and tolerance in educational materials established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.”

Textbooks used by the PA and the UN’s Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) likewise “demonize Israel, encourage war, and teach children that Palestinian statehood can be achieved through violence,” it warns.

UNRWA — which has in the past asserted that its textbooks have been rigorously reviewed to ensure they are in line with UN standards — maintains 349 schools in the Palestinian territories, with 240,400 students in Gaza and 50,000 students in the West Bank.

If passed, the State Department will be required to inform Congress whether any US foreign aid was used to fund the inciting materials, and of any steps the PA and UNRWA have taken to address the situation.

“If the report finds that the hate has not been removed, the House Foreign Affairs Committee will not tolerate US funds being used to teach the curriculum in UNWRA and PA schools,” said Marcus Sheff, CEO of the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se), which was involved in drafting the legislation.

In such a scenario, “sanctions will necessarily be applied,” he told The Algemeiner.

A review carried out by IMPACT-se last year found that PA textbooks “groom young Palestinians to sacrifice themselves to martyrdom,” promote the idea of a mass “return” to Israel, and “feature a radical Islamist, and occasionally, a Salafi worldview.”

The findings were used to encourage European Union lawmakers to approve amendments in April to prevent aid to the PA from financing educational materials considered discriminatory or intolerant.

“American and European lawmakers’ growing awareness about PA incitement in schools comes with a crucial understanding of how large an impediment to peace and tolerance the PA curriculum really is,” Sheff said. “The PA’s donor nations are in the best position to demand change from PA leaders.”

Washington was the leading donor to UNRWA in 2017, which provides food aid, healthcare, and other social services to more than five million Palestinians across the Middle East. Its $364 million contribution was more than double that of the EU, the second largest funder. The US pledged early this year to withhold aid to UNRWA until it undergoes reforms, ultimately cutting some $305 million in assistance, the agency’s chief said in April.

Rep. Young’s bill — co-sponsored by Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL), and Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) — has been submitted to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs for review.

It comes three months after Congress passed the Taylor Force Act, which cuts US aid to the PA until Ramallah stops paying salaries to convicted Palestinian terrorists and their families. The legislation was named after a US Army veteran and Vanderbilt University graduate student killed in a Palestinian terrorist attack while visiting Israel in 2016.

African migrants report slavery, torture in 99% Muslim Algeria

Muslim Arabs holding black slaves continues to this day in countries such as Mauritania and Sudan.

Now:

Dozens of Africans say they were sold for labour and trapped in slavery in Algeria in what aid agencies fear may be a widening trend of abusing migrants headed for a new life in Europe.

Algeria is 99% Muslim.

Just as we do not hear gay activists loudly opposing Islamic hate and intolerance against them, nor do we  hear feminist outrage over the deplorable treatment of women in Islam. We also do not hear an outcry from black activists about black slavery in Islam. And if they did speak out, the mainstream media would absurdly label them “racist” and “intolerant.”

“African migrants report torture, slavery in Algeria,” by Nellie Peyton, Reuters, May 30, 2018:

DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Dozens of Africans say they were sold for labour and trapped in slavery in Algeria in what aid agencies fear may be a widening trend of abusing migrants headed for a new life in Europe.

Algerian authorities could not be reached for comment and several experts cast doubt on claims that such abuses are widespread in the north African country.

The tightly governed state has become a popular gateway to the Mediterranean since it became tougher to pass through Libya, where slavery, rape and torture are rife.

Amid a surge in anti-migrant sentiment, Algeria since late last year has sent thousands of migrants back over its southern border into Niger, according to the United Nations Migration Agency (IOM), where many tell stories of exploitation.

The scale of abuse is not known, but an IOM survey of thousands of migrants suggested it could rival Libya.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation heard detailed accounts of forced labour and slavery from an international charity and a local association in Agadez, Niger’s main migrant transit hub, and interviewed two of the victims by telephone.

“The first time they sold me for 100,000 CFA francs ($170),” said Ousmane Bah, a 21-year-old from Guinea who said he was sold twice in Algeria by unknown captors and worked in construction….

BLOWBACK: The Tommy Effect

Last Friday, Tommy Robinson became a political prisoner in “Soviet” England.  He was arrested during his live-stream reporting of the sentencing of rape gang who kept young girls as sex slaves.  Tommy was rushed to jail, and subsequently the UK government issued a media ban on the event. UK soon discovered it could silence the British press, but it couldn’t silence the world. So, they lifted the ban.

The UK censorship represents a heavy handed move by the Establishment to gag Tommy from reporting truth about the politics of Islam in Britain.

But the truth proved more powerful than the UK’s mainstream media ban. The blowback from the British court’s initial censorship of Tommy’s arrest and incarceration has produced world-wide sympathy for him and a concern for the state of free speech in the West. The English courts inadvertently made Tommy a symbol for free speech. Their call to silence became a wake up call.

The British government’s response was more like the totalitarian tactics of a Communist country or an Islamic nation than a supposedly free Western society. Their action to silence the press indicates a desire to operate in secret and exposes a government that no longer trusts its own citizens. If a country no longer trusts is own citizens or cares what they think, it is no longer a representative government.  When a government doesn’t listen, and acts independently of the people, it is a tyranny.

This gang rape trial smears the political Elite’s migration fantasy. The British government is complicit in a failed social experiment and wont’t admit it. Instead, they want to cover it up. These political crimes of coverup are on par with the crime itself. But the attempted coverup failed. As the people of the UK become more and more sick of the lies, sick of cover ups, sick of pretending, sick of a government that won’t listen, there will be continued blowback. All is not lost.

Tommy is the working class hero for the forgotten men and women of England who have now been galvanized into protest. We can only hope this will ultimately lead to the organization of new political party, one that is formed on a strong platform of freedom of speech and individual liberty. Britain is attempting to silence critics of Islam at every turn. This is dhimmitude, submission to Sharia. We must refuse to stand for it.

Boston police captain’s son to plead guilty for plotting ISIS attack

The featured photo above was taken on April 14, 2014 released by the North Berkshire District Court in North Adams, Mass., shows Alexander Ciccolo, charged with drunken driving. Authorities said Ciccolo, the son of a Boston police captain, was arrested July 4, 2015 in Adams, Mass., and is accused of plotting to detonate pressure-cooker bombs at an unidentified university and to broadcast the killings of students live online to show his support for the Islamic State group.

New York Post, May 21, 2018:

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — A Boston police captain’s son who is accused of plotting a terrorist attack on a college campus to support the Islamic State group is expected to plead guilty.

A plea hearing for Alexander Ciccolo will be held in federal court in Springfield Monday. It was not immediately clear what he might plead guilty to.

Prosecutors and Ciccolo’s attorney declined to comment last week.

Ciccolo was arrested in July 2015 after receiving guns from a federal informant. Prosecutors say he planned to detonate homemade bombs similar to the pressure cooker bombs used in the 2013 Boston Marathon attack.

Ciccolo’s father is Boston Police Capt. Robert Ciccolo. Ciccolo’s mother has said her son “would not hurt a fly.”

Ciccolo was scheduled to go on trial next month.

New York Times Runs Column by Wife Of Violent Jihadi, Taliban Fighter

NEW YORK TIMES RUNS COLUMN BY WIFE OF RADICAL ISLAMIST, TALIBAN FIGHTER

By Joe Simonson, Daily Caller, May 10, 2018:

The New York Times seems destined to sink Gina Haspel’s chances of becoming CIA director — even if it means running op-eds by the wife of a radical Islamist.

The Gray Lady decided to give one of her pages on Wednesday to Fatima Boudchar, who was jailed by the CIA in 2004. To hear Boudchar tell it, you’d think the U.S. government abducted and tortured a poor pregnant woman in a Bangkok secret prison simply because of her tangential relationship with an anti-Qaddafi freedom fighter.

In reality, Boudchar’s professed ignorance of being a simple woman “from a small town in Morocco” who “hardly thought about the United States” stands in opposition to her marriage to Abdelhakim Belhaj, an Islamist military leader who once fought for the Taliban and has alleged ties with al-Qaeda leaders.

Of course, Belhaj’s name is nowhere to be found in Boudchar’s column — surprisingly (or not, depending on your level of cynicism) The New York Times’ editors didn’t find it necessary to include this fact either.

Boudchar said she underwent brutal torture in the hands of the CIA, such as being brutally assaulted in the stomach despite being halfway through a pregnancy. Her stay with the CIA was brief, however, and she seemed to undergo the most brutality in the hands of the Libyan government.

Despite her moving words, believing Boudchar’s account proves difficult due to her professed ignorance that the U.S. government might have been pursuing her, despite the fact that the Libyan government had an arrest warrant out for her husband in 2002 because he had been accused of running and financing mujahideen fighter camps. Stunningly, the thought that her husband might be up to no good never occurred to her during the years when he traveled across Sudan, Pakistan, Syria and Iran.

None of this stops her from condemning the U.S. government or from implying that Haspel oversaw similar alleged torture in the prisons she ran. Boudchar said she suffered an “injustice,” but never presented evidence that she was wrongly imprisoned.

Like many leftist calls for U.S. apologies, Boudchar said the CIA must come clean of its past sins, and if “America wants to persuade the Muslim world it means us no harm.”

Except it seems clear that Boudchar’s husband meant the West great harm. At the judgement of American, British and Libyan intelligence, she seemed worthy of questioning.

At best, Boudchar turned a blind eye to the evil ideology her husband was promoting and at worst was a willing co-conspirator.

Neither America nor its defense employees owe Boudchar an apology. If she did indeed face abuse in the hands of American interrogators, that is regrettable.

For all the real victims of America’s missteps in the Middle East over the past two decades, one would imagine The New York Times could find a more sympathetic voice. Instead, readers learned once again that the complaints against Haspel’s appointment mostly ring hollow.

Greece ‘overwhelmed as Muslim migrants surge across border, situation ‘on verge of spinning out of control’

Greece is being “overwhelmed” by illegal migrants surging across its land border with Turkey, with a local mayor warning the situation is “on the verge of spinning out of control”.

Europeans should expect more crises due to the recklessness of European leaders that led to this new wave of illegal migration. There is inevitably more to come. Anti-immigration Hungarian leader Viktor Orban rightly “accused European Union leaders of encouraging illegal immigration and asking Europeans to put migrants ahead of their own families.”

One would think that no-go zones, mass rapes, jihad attacks, and violent anti-semitism were enough, but the EU is bent on continuing its policy of mass migration.

Rising tensions between Athens and Ankara’s increasingly erratic Islamist government are unlikely to be helping the situation, with the Turkish military stepping up violations of Greek airspace and territorial waters significantly.

Yet still the EU is entertaining the bizarre idea of allowing in Turkey to become part of the EU, despite Erdogan’s dream of a revived Ottoman Empire.

Turkey is a significant menace to Western nations:

The Greeks believe that the sudden influx is no accident, and that the Turkish government — which has repeatedly threatened to allow millions of migrants to flood Europe if demands on money, visa-free travel, and progress on its EU membership application are not met — is deliberately loosening its borders in order to put pressure on European governments.

The only hope left for all of Europe is a grassroots awakening of the people; their leaders have abandoned them.

“Return of the Migrant Crisis: Greece ‘Overwhelmed’ as Illegals Surge Across Turkish Land Border”, by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, April 30, 2018:

Greece is being “overwhelmed” by illegal migrants surging across its land border with Turkey, with a local mayor warning the situation is “on the verge of spinning out of control”.

The country bore the brunt of the 2015 influx, which saw over 815,000 illegal migrants traverse the Aegean Sea in dangerous watercraft.

This figure was reduced to 30,000 in 2017 after the European Union persuaded the Turkish government to step up containment efforts following a multi-billion euro deal partly financed by the United Kingdom.

The major action then shifted from Greece to the so-called Central Mediterranean Route from Libya to Italy, but this, too, was brought under partial control in late 2017, after the Italian authorities began incentivising the Libyan coast guard to intercept smuggler-boats and cracked down on so-called “rescue” ships operated by pro-migration NGOs.

Germany’s new government went so far as the declare that the migrant crisis was over as a result of these developments — but its reignition on the Greco-Turkish border appears to have vindicated more judicious leaders, such as Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, who have warned it is just beginning.

In April alone, almost 3,000 illegal migrants penetrated Greece’s land border by crossing the Evros river in East Thrace — Turkey’s last remaining foothold on the European mainland.

This figure is equivalent to half the number of migrants who arrived in all of 2017, and Greek politicians along the frontier are warning they cannot cope with the strain.

“Our reception facilities are overwhelmed and things are on the verge of spinning out of control. Far more are coming than are actually being registered,” said Dimitris Mavrides, mayor of Orestiada, in comments to The Guardian….

New play depicts Jesus raping a Muslim woman — and it’s sold-out

Migrants are overrunning Europe. And a million more are expected. Coming with the Islamic trend in the West: in Norway, all rapes in the past 5 years were committed by Muslims — one 12-year-old rape victim was told by her Muslim rapist, “he had the right to do exactly as he wanted to a woman.” “Why?” “Because that is how it was in his religion. Women did not have rights or opinions, he was in charge.”

The hijrah is catapulting Europe back centuries. But in the Czech Republic, the hot new play depicts a total inversion of reality: a Muslim woman raped not just by a Christian, but by Christianity’s central and most revered figure, Jesus himself. This is what the Czechs want to see: Muslims as victims in a fantasy in which they, as the inhabitants of a nation with a Christian heritage, bear all the guilt.

Reality is going to crash in on them soon enough. When it does, some of them might wish they had produced a play that more faithfully depicted present-day realities. But to have done that would have been “Islamophobic.”

Croat Oliver Frljic

“Bishops criticise play in which Jesus rapes Muslim at festival,” ČTK, April 20, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Brno, April 19 (CTK) – Czech bishops have distanced themselves from the performance “Our Violence and Your Violence,” in which Jesus rapes a Muslim woman, in the programme of the May theatre festival in Brno, in a letter they sent to Brno Mayor Petr Vokral (ANO) and released on their website on Thursday….

The controversial performance, directed by Croat Oliver Frljic, is staged jointly by the Croat National Theatre in Rijeka and the Slovenian Mladinsko Theatre in Ljubljana.

Cardinal Dominik Duka, primate of the Czech Catholic Church, called the play “the sale of Christianity and its ideals.” He also said this concept offended not only Christians, but also Muslims and all Czechs.

The bishops of the Roman Catholic dioceses and the Apostolic Exarch representing the Greek Catholic Church dealt with the theatre performance at the plenary session of the Czech Bishops’ Conference in Nitra, west Slovakia.

In the past days, the festival organiser, the National Theatre in Brno, rejected the effort to withdraw the performance from the programme, which the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) and Communists (KSCM) demanded in the municipal assembly.

Festival director Martin Glaser stressed that the topic of this year’s festival was freedom. Though Frljic’s performance is an extreme art expression, this is a legitimate part of theatre, he said….

The performance offers a view of Europe taken unawares by the migrant crisis. It asks unpleasant questions about religion, Europe’s stance on the situation in the Middle East and different approaches to terrorist attacks in Europe, Baghdad and Kabul in a provocative way, the festival programme managers say.

The performance for 200 viewers scheduled for May 26 is sold out….

On Wednesday, Orthodox priest Libor Halik, who often protests against abortion, was standing with a big wooden cross outside the Husa na Provazku theatre where the controversial play would be shown.

On the other hand, colleagues from other theatres have supported the Brno festival organisers.
