The Pittsburgh Shooting and Islamic Apologists’ Cognitive Dissonance

They condemn anti-Semitism, but believe in a book teeming with it. My latest in PJ Media. I wrote this several days ago; since then, the casualty count, as well as the number of Muslim leaders condemning anti-Semitism, without, of course, ever being asked about Islamic anti-Semitism, has grown.

On Saturday morning, a man named Robert Bowers entered the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh in the middle of a service and opened fire, killing eleven people while screaming “All Jews must die.” His Gab page showed that he hated President Trump as much as he hated Jews, not least because of Trump’s strong support for Israel.

Muslim leaders and Islamic apologists were quick to condemn the killings and anti-Semitism in general. This is all good, except that it entangles them in difficult contradictions.

The Muslim Public Affairs Council tweeted: “Our hearts are broken at the news of a shooting and casualties at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. We pray for strength and healing for the congregation and Jewish communities nationwide. We offer our sympathies for and solidarity with the American Jewish community.” Also tweeting was Corey Saylor, an Islamic apologist and former CAIR official: “I stand with #Pittsburgh and the Jewish community. #Pittsburghissteel and we are with you. Anti-Semitism is ugly and unacceptable.”

Akbar Ahmed, a world-renowned Islamic scholar and professor at American University, tweeted: “I pray for the victims of the shooting at #TreeofLife synagogue in #Pittsburgh and send my condolences to their families and community. The shooter, a white man, walked into the synagogue shouting racist abuses, while the congregation was in prayer demonstrating a classic pattern of contemporary hatred. #Antisemitic violence is up 50% in the past year. Muslims, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, LGBT – no one is safe! America has to wake up and stop this killing madness.”

Not to be outdone, Ahmed’s protégé, Dr. Craig Considine of Rice University, tweeted: “Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting. Anti-Semitism is poisonous & vile. It has no place in the U.S. or anywhere else for that matter. It is an assault on human rights. It is a threat to society at large. It must not be tolerated anywhere.”

Considine has previously likened Muhammad to George Washington, hailed Muhammad as a “universal champion of human rights,” and claimed that Christianity has a concept of jihad just like Islam’s. He pulls off these feats of legerdemain by employing a very simple method: ignoring the abundance of evidence that doesn’t fit his thesis. Considine has even called on Christians to accept Muhammad as a prophet.

Muhammad said this, according to Islamic tradition:

The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews. (Sahih Muslim 6985)

Many Muslims take this genocidal saying very seriously. An imam in Denmark was indicted for hate speech for quoting it approvingly last summer. Imams have also quoted it recently not just in the Palestinian Authority but in Montreal, in Davis, California, in Houston, and elsewhere.

What’s more, the Qur’an that all these Muslim spokesmen revere as the perfect word of Allah depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

Such passages have induced Muslims throughout the last fourteen centuries, as I show in detail in my book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, to brutalize and kill Jews.

Yet MPAC, Saylor, Ahmed, Considine, and others like them have never said a word about that incitement. So while it is good to see them condemn anti-Semitism in the wake of the horrific massacre in the Pittsburgh synagogue, there is a great deal more for them to do in this line.

Will they condemn all the sources of anti-Semitic hatred and violence, even when they cut close to home? Or is some anti-Semitism more unacceptable than others?

Los Angeles: 72% of hate crimes target Jews, 15% target Christians, 12% target Muslims

No crime targeting innocent people is ever justified. These statistics explode the mainstream narrative about “Islamophobia.”

“Report: 72% of L.A. Religious Hate Crimes Targeted Jews In 2017,” by Aaron Bandler, Jewish Journal, October 18, 2018:

The latest report from the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations shows that 72 percent of hate crimes against religion in the county were against Jews in 2017.

Following Jews on the list were Muslims, Catholics and Protestants:

The number of hate crimes targeting Jews increased by 4 percent from 2016, from 71 to 68 percent.

Among all targeted groups, Jews were third at 14 percent, behind the LGBT community (21 percent) and blacks (25 percent)….

Berlin: “Nearly all” attacks on gays committed by “migrant-background men”

Attacks on homosexuals have never been so common in the German capital, with most of the attackers being young migrant-background men. In 2017 alone, 324 violent incidents and threats toward homosexuals was reported to the Berlin anti-homophobic violence group Project Maneo which claimed that around a third of the complaints involved bodily injury

It is a Sharia decree that homosexuals must be killed. It is highly illogical to think that conditioning would magically disappear from Sharia-adherent Muslims as they cross a border.

“Berlin Sees Rise in Homophobic Attacks with Nearly All Committed by Migrant-Background Men,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, October 18, 2018:

A Berlin anti-violence project has claimed that attacks on homosexuals have never been so common in the German capital, with most of the attackers being young migrant-background men.

In 2017 alone, 324 violent incidents and threats toward homosexuals was reported to the Berlin anti-homophobic violence group Project Maneo which claimed that around a third of the complaints involved bodily injury, Berliner Zeitung reports.

The vast majority of the homophobic assaults in the city have occurred in the districts of Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, and Neukölln. Almost all of the perpetrators of violence are men from migrant backgrounds, according to the head of Project Maneo Bastian Finke.

“We are still living in a male-dominated society in which the public space is a male-dominated space,” Finke said.

The figures collected by Project Maneo were much higher than those reported to Berlin police which reported only 164 crimes against homosexuals and transsexuals during the same period.

Anne Griessbach-Baers, who handles such cases for the Berlin police, said, “We estimate that 80 to 90 percent of cases will not be reported,” indicating that the true number of homophobic crimes could be far higher….

German father charged for protecting his daughter against sexual assault by migrant

This is what a society looks like when it is committing suicide.

“German father charged for protecting his daughter against sexual assault by migrant,” Voice of Europe, October 5, 2018:

A man protecting his 21-year-old daughter against a bottom groping African will be charged with causing bodily harm.

At the Munich Hackerbrücke train station, a drunk 28-year-old migrant from Eritrea grabbed a German woman under her skirt on Tuesday.

When her father saw the sexual assault, he punched the African man in the face to make him stop.

An employee of the German railway company Deutsche Bahn, witnessed the incident and alerted federal police.

The German police decided to file two charges: One against the migrant for sexual assault and one against the father for causing bodily harm.

Many Germans were shocked by the case against the father, believing the man acted in defence of his daughter. Comments below a Facebook post regarding the charges show that many do not understand why the father is being punished for protecting his daughter….

VIDEO: Democrat Muslim Candidates for Congress Assault Jewish journalist Laura Loomer

2018 Democrat Candidates for Congress Palestinian Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Somalian Ilhan Omar (MN) assaulted Jewish investigative journalist Laura Loomer for asking questions!

Laura Loomer was in Minnesota for a political event held by these two 2018 Democrat candidates for Congress.

Watch what happens:

Laura Loomer confronted Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, two U.S. candidates with connections to terror organizations. They have both expressed hatred towards Jewish people, are campaigning with pro-HAMAS Linda Sarsour and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is designated an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holyland Terrorist Financing trial.

2018 Candidates for Congress obviously do NOT understand U.S. or state law! They can NOT shut down a journalist’s right to investigate and report by assaulting the journalist!

Maybe that worked in their former homeland, but NOT on U.S. soil!

Assault is a crime as stated by MN state law:

MINNESOTA CRIMINAL STATUES

ASSUALT 609.02
SUBD. 10.ASSAULT.

“ASSAULT” IS:

(1) AN ACT DONE WITH INTENT TO CAUSE FEAR IN ANOTHER OF IMMEDIATE BODILY HARM OR DEATH; OR

(2) THE INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF OR ATTEMPT TO INFLICT BODILY HARM UPON ANOTHER.
*ASSAULT DOES NOT REQUIRE PHYSICAL CONTACT.

AMERICA IS WATCHING!

Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are BAD candidates for Congress!

BAD FOR MICHIGAN, BAD FOR MINNESOTA, BAD FOR ISRAEL, BAD FOR AMERICA!

  • He will NOT recognize Federal Law and uphold it!
  • He will NOT stand against the threats of Sharia that are happening more and more in Michigan!

Abdul is simply a BAD candidate for Governor!

WATCH AND WHY EL-SAYED BAD FOR MICHIGAN, BAD FOR ISRAEL, BAD FOR AMERICA!

Italy wants more Italian babies and fewer migrants

When I read Mark Steyn’s disheartening America Alone, ten years ago, like Steyn, I saw no hope for Europeans to halt the steep population decline of their people.  Italians, Germans, French and Spaniards, etc. just weren’t having enough children to replace themselves while migrant population numbers were skyrocketing.

For the first time since I started my ‘Invasion of Europe’ series I see hope for a reversal of the trend everyone thought could never be turned around.   Is it too little, too late, who knows, but thank God there are now political leaders willing to try!

Italy’s Salvini and Hungary’s Orban say NO to the idea that “New Europeans” are needed for Europe’s economy to survive. Thanks, but no thanks, we will produce our own children!

Italian Interior Minister wants more babies and fewer migrants as the country’s traditions and identity are at stake

Matteo Salvini, The League (Lega) leader heads one half of Italy’s new populist coalition government and he’s not held back his opinion that Italy’s “tradition, our story, our identity” was at risk while the political left have used declining birthrates and threat of an ageing population as an “excuse” to “import migrants”.

In an interview with The Sunday Times at the historic Palazzo del Viminale in Rome, the Italian Interior Minister cautioned that a country which imports migrants instead of supporting families is “destined to die”.

His comments follow Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s programme calling for Hungarians to have more children.

Poland and Hungary are among several conservatives in Central Europe making the decision to pursue pro-family policies, rejecting mass migration, despite the possibility of slowing short-term gains to GDP and engendering anger from the globalist establishment in the European Union.

“We have created a ministry of the family to work on fertility, nurseries, on a fiscal system which takes large families into account. At the end of this mandate, the government will be measured on the number of newborns more than on its public debt,” the Minister stated.

U.S. based Institute for Family Studies suggests that the country is successfully “winding back the clock on much of the fertility and family-structure transition that demographers have long considered inevitable” with new policies to help responsible married couples get into homeownership, supporting childbearing, and raising incomes.

Orbán and Salvini’s policies are a significant departure from the many left politicians in Western Europe. Germany’s Gregor Gysi, for example, believes in the necessity and desirability of replacing Europeans with ‘New Europeans’ from a migration background.

UK: Franklin Graham Festival of Hope ads banned over Graham’s “islamophobic” comments

Church leaders in Blackpool have criticised what they describe as an “astonishing” decision to ban bus adverts promoting an evangelistic event which will see Franklin Graham preach a gospel message……In an open letter, the church leaders said: “Because the Christian community is also a customer, we hope Blackpool Transport will listen to our public feedback as well, and not show what appears to be a potential bias against Christians.”

Blackpool Transport banned the ads for the Franklin Graham Lancashire Festival of Hope because Graham has previously condemned homosexuality, and because he has made “Islamophobic” comments such as “Islam has declared war on the world.” Truth be told, Graham understands what the global jihad is about.

Lancashire has a bad reputation when it comes to Islamic issues: the Lancashire Police won the “diversity champion of the year” award at the British Muslim Awards; a Sharia court in Lancashire handed down a sentence approving of honor killing; and Islamic leaders in Lancashire called on Muslims to boycott school meals after a ban on non-stunned halal meat in schools.

“Church leaders label Franklin Graham bus ad ban ‘bias against Christians,’” by Marcus Jones, Premier UK, July 13, 2018:

Church leaders in Blackpool have criticised what they describe as an “astonishing” decision to ban bus adverts promoting an evangelistic event which will see Franklin Graham preach a gospel message.

The Lancashire Festival of Hope leadership team say it’s a “travesty” that Blackpool Transport chose to remove them.

The company had said it came to the decision after listening to public feedback.

A number of people had taken to social media to claim that Franklin Graham would be preaching hate and homophobia at the event which is due to take place at the city’s Winter Gardens in September.

In an open letter, the church leaders said: “Because the Christian community is also a customer, we hope Blackpool Transport will listen to our public feedback as well, and not show what appears to be a potential bias against Christians.”

A number of MPs have raised concern about his visit to Blackpool fearing he will repeat previous statements condemning homosexuality and Islam.

But speaking to Premier earlier this year, Graham said: “I’m not coming to preach hate, I’m here to preach about a saviour – Jesus Christ who can make a difference in our lives if we put our faith and trust in him.”

The church leaders say they are seeking a meeting with Blackpool Transport and have urged Christians not to complain but to act in a positive nature by praying…

VIDEO: A Common Bond and the Task for Christians

Random house decided not to publish a controversial book about Islam because it might seize on and amplify anti-Islam sentiments.

And in England, only 20 of the 650 Members of Parliament would sign an open letter urging action on the “grooming scandal” (actually what should be called the Islamic rape and sex trafficking gangs).

These two items have a common bond—fear of offending Muslims and antagonizing the apologists who call any criticism about Islam racist “Islamophobia”. Random House and the 630 MPs are ruled by fear. Random House does not care about freedom of ideas and freedom of speech. The 630 MPs, who would not sign a letter defending the human rights of hundreds of young British girls, do not care about justice for these victims.

It is not that Islam is so strong, but that we are ignorant and fearful. We are the problem, not Islam.

But the worst part of the problem is that our so-called leaders are the biggest cowards of all. The higher you go the less they know (or will admit).

The Task for Christians

Cowardice and ignorance are the bonds between secular and religious leaders. It is part of the decay of the churches. This video is a call for Christians to fight on, without their fearful, timid, willfully ignorant leaders.

In a few short weeks, Michigan voters in the Primary elections could make history that will reverberate across the Republic.  Is it possible that the Michigan primaries will elect a candidate for Governor:

  • Whose campaign is funded by national & Sharia financed sources
  • Is Sharia compliant which means Sharia first, Constitution second
  • Has stated Michigan would become a sanctuary state, protecting illegals over Michigan citizens
  • Would enable/promote Sharia which means women & girls live enslaved lives in the name of multi-culturalism

These life-changing possibilities are real enough that a panel of experts has been convened to explore and identify counter-measures for concerned Michigan citizens and discuss impacts that could affect every state across America.
