“Palestinians” fly swastika kite with petrol bomb across Gaza border into Israel

As I have pointed out so many times, Islamic Jew-hatred is a core tenet of Islam. It’s in the quran. Those passages of Jew-hatred are quoted chapter and verse by imams, clerics, Muslim media and leaders of Islamic groups all over the world. This is not new: there have now been 1,400 years of Islamic persecution and oppression of the Jews, and Islamic Jew-hatred still fuels the continuing evil incitement behind Hamas, Hezb’allah, Islamic jihad, the Al Aqsa Brigades, and Iran’s promise to annihilate Israel. Until the quran and Islamic texts are expunged of the Jew-hatred that inspires hate, violence, murder and genocide, it will only get worse.

And so it is no surprise at all to see the “Palestinians” appropriating Nazi imagery. Mein Kampf is a consistent bestseller in Turkey and other Muslim countries. Hitler is lionized. All too many Muslims see him as a hero, for the sole reason that he killed Jews.

“Palestinians fly swastika kite with petrol bomb across Gaza border into Israel,” Times of Israel, Mailonline, April 20, 2018:

Palestinians at the Gaza border flew a kite marked with a swastika and carrying a petrol bomb into Israel on Friday.

The Israeli army posted photographs of the kite in the air and on the ground inside Israel.

An IDF spokesman, Jonathan Conricus, wrote: “Moments ago, terrorist Hamas sent a Molotov cocktail over the Gaza border into Israel. They flew it with their true colors.”

Friday marked the fourth weekend in succession that thousands of Palestinians have demonstrated at the border, in mass protests encouraged by the Gaza Strip’s Hamas rulers. Originally declared as non-violent “March of Return” protests, the demonstrations are being encouraged by Hamas, which seeks to destroy Israel, and whose leaders say the goal of the protests is to erase the border and liberate Palestine.

The Israeli army says it has faced “terror” at the fence during the weekly protests, including a shooting incident, numerous efforts to breach the fence, stone- and bomb-throwing. In recent days, Gazans have flown kites carrying petrol bombs across the border, and these have caused fires several times in Israeli fields close to the border.

On Tuesday, one such kite started a fire in a grassy grove outside Kibbutz Be’eri, an Israeli community located some seven kilometers (4.3 miles) east of Gaza’s Bureij refugee camp. It took four teams of firefighters to bring the blaze under control, a spokesman for the local fire department said. The Kan news broadcaster reported that the fire had spread over almost 100 dunams (25 acres).

Gazans filmed the kite crossing the border and starting the blaze, in a video shared on social media….

London: Homicides up 44%, robbery up 36%, knife crime up 21%, rape up 18.39%

Sadiq Khan banned bikini ads on London’s Metro, but told Londoners to get get used to jihad terror: “it’s part and parcel of living in a big city.” But that’s just the beginning for a London under Islam: “Earlier this year London overtook New York City as one of the most dangerous capital cities in the Western world. The House of Commons recently revealed the UK capital has more acid attacks per capita than any other city in the world.”

The Guido Fawkes blog notes: “In the years before Khan became mayor the numbers had fallen significantly – the Tories had got the numbers down to between 10 and 15 deaths of young people per year from over 30” and asks: “Why isn’t Sadiq facing more pressure on this? It should really be a much bigger story…”

The answer is obvious: to make this is a bigger story would be “islamophobic.” London police are too busy tracking down online “islamophobia” to bother with catching murderers and rapists. And apparently most Londoners are just fine with that.

“Met releases end of year crime statistics,” Metropolitan Police, April 26, 2018 (thanks to Mark):

The Metropolitan Police Service has released its end-of-year crime statistics today, Thursday 26 April. The figures compare end-of-financial-year April to March 2017/18 with April to March 2016/17. Whilst recorded crime continues to rise in the Met’s area, increases in many crimes are more marked in other parts of the country.

Total Notifiable Offences

Figures show that overall crime – total notifiable offences – has increased by 6.4 per cent (777,458 to 827,225 offences). However, many groups of offences remain lower than they were in 2012.

Violence against the person / homicide

Violence against the person is up by 5.26 per cent (237,774 to 250,287 offences). Under this category, homicides are up by 44 per cent (109 to 157 offences). Eight of these were as a result of the appalling terror attacks that occurred at Westminster Bridge in March, London Bridge in June and Finsbury Park in June. However, the number of homicides is still much lower than in 2003/04 when there were 205 instances. Nevertheless, any murder is one murder too many and detectives are working 24/7 to catch those responsible, using all resources available to them. They are also working with the Crown Prosecution Service to bring offenders to justice, as well as supporting families and loved ones at the most difficult of times.

Assault with injury increased by 0.54 per cent (50,836 to 51,110 offences). Knife crime offences are up by 21.2 per cent (12,115 to 14,680 offences) and knife crime with injury offences are up by 5.7 per cent (4,446 to 4,700 offences). Knife crime injuries to under 25s have stabilised and recorded offences at present have increased by 3 per cent compared to a 24 per cent increase for the same period last year.

Conversely, gun crime offences are down by 4.6 per cent over the comparison period (2,553 to 2,435 offences), although there was an increase in the discharge of lethal barrelled guns by 23.3 per cent (313 to 386 offences).

A Violent Crime Task Force has been instigated to tackle violent crime, weapon-enabled crime and serious criminality. These officers will use a full range of tactics to identify, locate and confront street-level offenders, gangs and knife crime offenders. This unit will be supported by borough officers, Trident and Area Crime Command and specialist units, as well as community partners.

Operation Sceptre will continue to target those people known to routinely carry knives through intelligence-led operations, the increased and proper use of ‘stop and search’, community weapons sweeps and targeting the shops and markets that sell knives to children.

Sexual offences

Sexual offences are up by 11.04 per cent (17,880 to 19,854 offences); within that, recorded rape is up by 18.39 per cent (6,510 to 7,707 offences) and other sexual offences are up by 6.83 per cent (11,370 to 12,147 offences). The Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command has been working within the diverse communities to address under reporting of offences, particularly through a social media campaign: #ITSNOTOK.

Burglary / Robbery

Burglary of homes and businesses is up by 11.65 per cent (69,528 to 77,626 offences). The Met is committed to reducing the number of burglaries across London. It deploys patrols to hotspot areas, carries out proactive operations in east and south London against organised criminal groups who commit these offences, and collaborates with the home-counties forces to tackle cross-border offending.

The highly successful MetTrace property marking kits (traceable forensic liquid which can be used to invisibly tag valuables and possessions) are being rolled out for a third year. Over a quarter of a million homes have already been provided with MetTrace.

Total robbery is up by 35.81 per cent (24,202 to 32,869 offences), with robbery of personal property up by at 36.17 per cent (22,479 to 30,609 offences). Theft is up by 8.05 per cent (305,876 to 330,511 offences) with theft from person at 25.19 per cent, (38,013 to 47,587 offences).

Some of the increase in robbery and theft is attributable to scooter-related crime. The Met has been putting a huge amount of effort into stemming the rise in these offences. In October, new tactics such as DNA spray, light-weight police motorcycles, and remote control tyre deflation devices were introduced. As a result, reductions in scooter-related crime are being experienced. In April 2017, there were 1,512 scooter, moped and motorcycle thefts. In less than a year this number was reduced – March 2018 saw 756 thefts – a 50 per cent reduction….

House Judiciary Hearing on Social Media Censorship

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee Hearing held a hearing on April 26th, on social media filtering and policing practices. The hearing will focus on how social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter, along with tech giant Google, moderate content on their platforms. It will feature social media personalities Diamond & Silk, who have garnered attention in recent weeks for having their content deemed“unsafe” by Facebook.

Just yesterday, I was, yet again, blocked from Facebook for publishing a news story about Islamic Jew-hatred in Germany.

For months, Facebook has been censoring, scrubbing and banning posts, comments and users who dare violate the Sharia. And it’s getting worse. Posts, links, comments critical of jihad and sharia violate Facebook’s sharia terms of service. My feed has been blocked and banned. Facebook daily referrals were 90K plus back in February, today is under 2k. My feed is blocked from my millions of followers on Facebook, and I have seen my circulation drop precipitously in the past three months. For news publishers, Facebook is the motherboard of link traffic. No news site can survive without them. None of us are immune, which is why my traffic is down upwards of 95% since the block. My Facebook page has well over a million followers; add my organizations to that, and it is roughly two million people. Now imagine their sharing capability, and their friends and their friends — you get the picture. It’s how we fight fake news. All of my FB followers experience similar issues with their posts and shares. I receive scores of emails every day from readers telling me of new blocks, bans and Facebook jail sentences. It’s why I am suing.

Imagine a chief officer from a major American communications company went to the terror state of Pakistan to assure the Pakistani government that Facebook would adhere to the sharia. The commitment was given by Vice President of Facebook Joel Kaplan who called on Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan. “Facebook has reiterated its commitment to keep the platform safe and promote values that are in congruence with its community standards.”

Why the block?

Because under Islamic law, you cannot criticize Islam. Facebook adhering to the most extreme and brutal ideology on the face of the earth should trouble all of us, because Mark Zuckerberg has immense power. He controls the flow of information. He controls what you see and don’t see on Facebook. We did not give him the power to abridge our unalienable freedoms.

The US government used anti-trust laws to break up monopolies. They ought to break up Facebook. Section 2 of the Sherman Act highlights particular results deemed anti-competitive by nature and prohibits actions that “shall monopolize, or attempt to monopolize, or combine or conspire with any other person or persons, to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations.” Why shouldn’t the same be applied to information? The United States government took down Standard Oil, Alcoa, Northern Securities, the American Tobacco Company and many others without nearly the power that Facebook has. President Clinton sued Microsoft. And the USG broke up Ma Bell. Isn’t yesterday’s telephone number today’s IP address?

President Theodore Roosevelt sued 45 companies under the Sherman Act, while William Howard Taft sued 75, and the fact that the US government used these vicious anti-capitalist laws to destroy huge industrial giants must be used in defense of free speech?

From Free Out Internet:

Facebook, Google and Twitter’s rampant censorship of conservative voices is a direct threat to free speech in America, and Free Our Internet is happy to see that the House Judiciary Committee is taking the matter seriously. These social media giants are controlling content on their platforms, increasingly threatening free speech and sounding more and more like oppressive regimes around the world – including China, whose President Xi Jinping earlier this week emphasized his concern that the internet is becoming “a platform for disseminating harmful information and stirring up trouble with rumors.”

Watch the hearing here at 10:00am EST, and send a letter to your representatives in Congress today to let them know that Silicon Valley titans must be stopped in their crusade to control the flow of information. Together, we can take back control of the internet from the tech-left.

Muslim Congressional IT Staffer Transferred House Data to Pakistani Government

If this is true, it is an illustration of the damage that fear of charges of “Islamophobia” can cause. The Democrats for whom Imran Awan worked would not have dreamed of looking into his activities, for to do so would have been “Islamophobic.” And so now sensitive information that Awan purloined could be in the hands of the jihad-enabling Pakistani government.

Bill Clinton and Imran Awan (right) IT staffer for Democrat members of Congress.

“House Hacking Suspects’ Father Transferred Data To Pakistani Government, Ex-Partner Claims,” by Luke Rosiak and Wajid Ali Syed, Daily Caller, April 18, 2018:

FAISALABAD, Pakistan — The father of Imran Awan — an IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who investigators concluded made “unauthorized access” to House servers — transferred a USB drive to a Pakistani senator and former head of a Pakistani intelligence agency, the father’s ex-business partner, Rashid Minhas, alleged.

Minhas told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Imran Awan’s father, Haji Ashraf Awan, was giving data to Pakistani official Rehman Malik, and that Imran bragged he had the power to “change the U.S. president.”

Asked for how he knew this, he said that on one occasion in 2008 when a “USB [was] given to Rehman Malik by Imran’s father, my brother Abdul Razzaq was with his father.”

“After Imran’s father deliver (sic) USB to Rehman Malik, four Pakistani [government intelligence] agents were with his father 24-hour on duty to protect him,” he said. Minhas did not say what was on the USB.

TheDCNF traveled to Pakistan for this story and interviewed numerous residents who interacted with Imran, and they confirmed that he does travel that country with a contingent of armed Pakistani government officials and routinely brags about mysterious political power.

The House Office of Inspector General charged in Sept. 30, 2016 that data was being funneled off the House network by the Awans as recently as September 2016 — shortly before the presidential election.

Nearly Imran’s entire immediate family was on the House payroll working as IT aides to one-fifth of House Democrats, and he began working for the House in 2004.  The inspector general, Michael Ptasienski, testified this month that “system administrators hold the ‘keys to the kingdom’ meaning they can create accounts, grant access, view, download, update, or delete almost any electronic information within an office. Because of this high-level access, a rogue system administrator could inflict considerable damage.”

Minhas said “Imran Awan said to me directly these words: ‘See how I control White House on my fingertip…’ He say he can fire the prime minister or change the U.S. president,” Minhas said. “Why the claiming big stuff, I [didn’t] understand ’till now.”

“I was Imran father’s partner in Pakistan,” Minhas said, in two land deals in Pakistan so big that they are often referred to as “towns.” In 2009, both men were accused of fraud, and Haji was arrested but then released after Imran flew to Pakistan, “allegedly… exerting pressure on the local police through the ministry as well as the department concerned,” according to local news. Minhas and multiple alleged victims in Pakistan also told TheDCNF Imran exerted political influence in Pakistan to extricate his father from the case.

Minhas is now in U.S. federal prison for additional fraud, and TheDCNF could not confirm whether Minhas’ claims about the USBs are true. But Minhas said the DOJ or FBI never interviewed him about the Awans, an indicator the potential for espionage may not have been explored extensively. The probe involves money allegedly disappearing to Pakistan and Minhas was, prominently, their business partner there….

Haji would frequently boast that Imran’s position gave him political leverage, numerous Pakistani residents told TheDCNF. “My son own White House in D.C.,” he would say, according to Minhas. “I am kingmaker.”…

House Sergeant-At-Arms Paul Irving banned the Awans from the congressional network on Feb. 2, 2017 after the IG report alleged that the Awans were making “unauthorized access” to House servers. They logged in using members of Congress’s personal usernames and logged into servers of members for whom they did not work, the IG report said. After some members fired them, they still kept accessing their data, an IG presentation charged….

According to court documents, Minhas stole $700,000 from American Muslims by using their faith against them. He set up travel agencies that sold cheap tickets to the Hajj, the obligatory trip to Mecca. But instead of providing the tickets, he sent buyers letters saying “Allah didn’t invite you. That’s why you guys didn’t go,” as one victim recounted in court papers. “So, he blamed the whole thing on God, not on his thing what he did to us.”…

CBS: Obama withdrawal from Afghanistan a ‘Milestone’, Trump withdrawal from Syria a ‘Retreat’

The relentless establishment media Leftist propaganda drumbeat never lets up, even for a moment. Meanwhile, the social media giants are working more energetically than ever now to silence dissenting voices, so that this propaganda is all that you hear, and the America-hating Left will win a comfortable majority in the House and Senate in the 2018 elections.

“The anti-Trump media caravan rolls on,” by Robert Knight, Washington Times, April 8, 2018:

One of the most vexing aspects of daily life is the nonstop flow of anti-Trump propaganda masquerading as news analysis. That is, unless you hate Donald Trump, as most of the media clearly do. Fake news oozes from nearly every media pore, some of it more subtle than others.

After President Trump last week announced a planned pullout of U.S. troops from Syria, CBS and NBC decried the plan, warning of bad consequences, with CBS calling the move a “retreat.” By contrast, when President Obama made clear in 2013 that he was done with the war in Afghanistan, CBS led this way:

“Eager to end a war he didn’t begin, President Obama announced in January plans to speed up the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. In Tuesday’s State of the Union address, the president will announce a milestone in the timetable on that drawdown ” What a guy. No retreat, just sound policy. This is not about the wisdom of either president’s move; it’s about the media’s instinctive reaction….

President Trump Achieved More in One Year in the Middle East than the Previous Pitiful Eight

President Donald Trump’s administration, led by son-in-law Jared Kushner, just held a historic meeting among key nation leaders with interests in the Middle East.

And the press, of course, was pretty much silent on the matter.

Among those gathering for the get-together were leaders from Canada, Israel and Europe — as well as those from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Qatar and others.

Trump, it seems, has done more in his first year to soothe and calm Mideast tensions than Barack Obama did his entire eight years in office.

The Daily Wire has more:

In little-noticed news outside the Middle East, the Trump administration, led by son-in-law Jared Kushner, brokered a historic meeting regarding the situation in the Gaza Strip. According to The Jerusalem Post, the attendees included officials from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates, as well Israel, Canada, and European countries. That means that virtually every major regional power acting in counterbalance to Iran attended the meeting — and that the Palestinians boycotted it, once again demonstrating that they care less about the humanitarian crisis striking their citizens under the rule of terrorist group Hamas, and more about posturing regarding supposed Israeli intransigence.

Jason Greenblatt, Trump’s special representative for Middle East negotiations, stated, “We regret that the Palestinian Authority is not here with us today. This is not about politics. This is about the health, safety and happiness of the people of Gaza, and of all Palestinians, Israelis and Egyptians.”

This is the first White House event of this sort, ever. But the reason for the Palestinian boycott is obvious: the White House laid the blame for the humanitarian situation in Gaza on the ruling power in Gaza. “Everything we do must be done in a way that ensures we do not put the security of Israelis and Egyptians at risk,” Greenblatt stated, “and that we do not inadvertently empower Hamas, which bears responsibility for Gaza’s suffering.” Those are strong words, particularly considering that Qatar signs checks to Hamas on a regular basis.

But what this meeting truly says is that the most important priority in the Middle East is no longer using the plight of the Palestinians as a club to wield against the Israelis in order to distract from domestic issues in Muslim countries. Instead, the top priority is countering the rising power in Iran, which has extended its reach through Iraq and Syria and to Lebanon, and is moving in Yemen as well. Regional solutions to the Palestinian issue are likely to be far more successful than the false binary of Israelis vs. Palestinians that has predominated for decades.

44 Dems, Including Wasserman-Schultz, Exempted Muslim Spy Ring From Background Checks

How is that Democrats are never held accountable? Not just for their every day run-of-the-mill corruption and skulduggery, but for high treason?

Enemedia front page news is a bogus Trumped-up Russia investigation. But the biggest blockbuster spy story of the 21st century that no one is talking about is nowhere to be found in the enemedia echo chamber.

44 DEMS, INCLUDING WASSERMAN SCHULTZ, EXEMPTED PAKISTANI IT AIDES FROM BACKGROUND CHECKS

Luke Rosiak, Daily Caller, April 1, 2018

Every one of the 44 House Democrats who hired Pakistan-born IT aides who later allegedly made “unauthorized access” to congressional data appears to have chosen to exempt them from background checks, according to congressional documents.
Background check diagram from House Policy 16

Background check diagram from House Policy 16

All of them appear to have waived background checks on Imran Awan and his family members, even though the family of server administrators could collectively read all the emails and files of 1 in 5 House Democrats, and despite background checks being recommended for such positions, according to an inspector general’s report. The House security policy requires offices to fill out a form attesting that they’ve initiated background checks, but it also includes a loophole allowing them to simply say that another member vouched for them.

Among the red flags in Abid’s background were a $1.1 million bankruptcy; six lawsuits against him or a company he owned; and at least three misdemeanor convictions including for DUI and driving on a suspended license, according to Virginia court records. Public court records show that Imran and Abid operated a car dealership referred to as CIA that took $100,000 from an Iraqi government official who is a fugitive from U.S. authorities. Numerous members of the family were tied to cryptic LLCs such as New Dawn 2001, operated out of Imran’s residence, Virginia corporation records show. Imran was the subject of repeated calls to police by multiplewomen and had multiple misdemeanor convictions for driving offenses, according to court records.

If a screening had caught those, what officials say happened next might have been averted. The House inspector general reported on Sept. 20, 2016, that shortly before the election members of the group were logging into servers of members they didn’t work for, logging in using congressmen’s personal usernames, uploading data off the House network, and behaving in ways that suggested “nefarious purposes” and that “steps are being taken to conceal their activity.”

A pair of closely-held reports on Imran Awan, his brothers Abid and Jamal, his wife Hina Alvi, and his friend Rao Abbas, said, “the shared employees have not been vetted (e.g. background check).”

“Shared employees” means they were all hired as part-time, individual employees by individual members, cobbling together $165,000 salaries. Jamal began making that salary at only 20 years old, according to House payroll records; Abid never went to college, his stepmother said; and Rao Abbas’ most recent job experience was being  fired from McDonald’s, according to his roommate. (“Whether they had formal training or not, they were trained on the job by Imran,” one of Imran’s lawyers said.)

Among the 44 employers, the primary advocate for the suspects has been Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who introduced a bill Monday that would require background checks on Americans purchasing ammunition. “Without bullets a gun is just a hunk of useless metal,” she said, calling ammunition the “loophole” in gun control policy.

In Britain, If You See Something, You Better Say Nothing

The new top dog of Britain’s counter-terror police has asked Britons to become “counter-terrorism citizens” by reporting suspicious activity. Given the way Britain treats foes of jihad terror, however, it’s doubtful that he means it.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu did his best, however, to give the opposite impression. “People are nervous about police overreacting or about wasting our time,” he said, “but it’s never a waste of our time.”

The Independent reported that,

“people are being asked to look out for suspicious behaviour, including possessing weapons, chemicals, fertilisers or gas cylinders for no obvious reason, carrying out surveillance, having unusual items delivered, expressing extremist ideas or searching for terrorist material online.”

The Independent also articulated why Basu’s call rings hollow:

“Critics argued that the call for public help was ‘paving the way to the worst kinds of profiling, vigilantism and paranoia’ amid ongoing controversy around the Government’s counter-extremism Prevent programme.”

Basu, however, stood his ground, insisting that police were “not going to overreact to a single piece of intelligence,” and reiterating: “The point is you don’t have to make that judgement, you just have to feel nervous, and if you feel nervous, you shouldn’t sit on it – you should report it. Some people say ‘isn’t that a bit obvious’ or ‘it’s normal behaviour’ and that’s absolutely true but you’ve got to take that with people’s judgement. I think people have good instincts about what feels odd in their workplace, in their community and even in their family.”

And just so that no one would think that Basu was asking people to be suspicious of Muslims in particular, he engaged in some fanciful moral equivalence, claiming that in the last year, the UK had seen “10 foiled Islamist plots and four planned attacks by the extreme right, involved similar methods.”

Basu added: “Lone actors on the extreme right are copycatting some of methodology that has been used by Islamist jihadists around the world.” The Independent claimed that “the threat from both Islamists and the extreme right has been increasing as analysts document both groups feeding off each other in a process known as ‘reciprocal radicalization.’”

Basu’s words, and the Independent’s coverage of them, demonstrate that the British government is going all in with its contention that “far-right extremists” are an equivalent threat to that of Islamic jihadis. However, this equivalence is exposed as more propaganda than fact when one recalls that the most prominent people that they smear as “far-right extremists,” including Tommy Robinson, the recently banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone and Lauren Southern, as well as Pamela Geller and me, have never called for or condoned any vigilantism or violence; our only crime is opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression.

Theresa May in late 2016 likened Pamela Geller and me to Abu Hamza and Abu Qatada, and in doing so showed the bankruptcy of this equivalence. Abu Hamza repeatedly preached violence against infidels and is currently in prison for aiding an attempt to set up an al-Qaeda training camp in Oregon. Abu Qatada likewise was involved in the planning of jihad terror plots. To liken us, when we have never been involved in or approved of any violence or illegal activity, was obscenely libelous.

When Basu claimed that there were “10 foiled Islamist plots and four planned attacks by the extreme right,” involving “similar methods,” he didn’t offer any details, and without them, it’s extremely hard to believe that there were really four attempted terror attacks by the “extreme right.” Besides having no terror leaders, the “extreme right” is not part of a global movement that has declared war on Britain and other countries. It has not boasted about how it will soon conquer and subjugate Britain. It has no ideology or political system that it is determined to put into place. Primarily, the British government has demonized as “extreme right” those who don’t want to see their country destroyed by further jihad massacres and ongoing Islamization.

And so now Neil Basu wants people to report suspicious activity. Great. But now the British government is imprisoning and prosecuting people for “Islamophobia.” So if someone sees a jihad massacre being plotted, the witness must be very careful in alerting British authorities, for the suspicion itself could be seen as “Islamophobic,” especially if the witness is a non-Muslim.

In today’s Britain, foes of jihad terror who see something better say nothing, if they want to keep from getting arrested themselves.

U.S. Taylor Force Act becomes law despite Democrat and Palestinian Authority opposition

UPDATE: The Taylor Force Act, named after a US Army veteran murdered by a Palestinian assailant in Jaffa in 2016, was signed into law on Friday, March 23rd, 2018 by U.S. President Donald Trump, as part of an omnibus spending package passed by Congress the day before.

Who would have imagined that the simple act of punishing terrorism would be such a herculean task, and the passage of the Taylor Force act (may his soul rest in peace) such an incredible feat? But in the age of the leftism, it is exactly that. A miracle in a dark age.

For those unfamiliar with who Taylor Force was, Taylor Force was an American Army veteran murdered by a Muslim terrorist in Jaffa in 2016.

The Democrats, party of terrorism, was of course, were a stmbling block to its passage.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that in order to achieve peace, P.A. leader Mahmoud Abbas must “stop paying terrorists who murder Jews.”

“You know how much he pays? He pays about $350 million a year to terrorists and their families, each year,” stated Netanyahu. “That’s about a little less than 10 percent of the total Palestinian budget. That’s an incredible number.”

The legislation was introduced in the Senate in 2016 by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), and in the House of Representatives in February 2017. A Texas native, West Point graduate and U.S. Army veteran, Force was stabbed and killed by a Palestinian terrorist during a Vanderbilt University graduate-school trip to Israel.

The two competing versions of the Taylor Force Act in Congress, however, have several key differences that have caused concern among advocates of the bill. Passed on Dec. 5 by the U.S. House of Representatives, H.R. 1164 adds several exemptions and loopholes to the original proposed Senate version. (JNS)

US TAYLOR FORCE ACT TO BECOME LAW DESPITE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY OPPOSITION

THE LAW WOULD DRAMATICALLY HALT US FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO THE PA ABSENT REFORM, WHILE RETAINING AID ALLOTTED TO SECURITY COOPERATION AND SOME HUMANITARIAN RELIEF.

WASHINGTON – Congress is expected to pass a bill this week that threatens to freeze State Department funds to the Palestinian Authority unless it ends its longstanding practice of compensating the families of terrorists convicted in Israeli courts.

The PA passionately opposes this bill, claiming that its “martyr” compensation scheme benefits generations of families that include those of legitimate combatants in the Palestinian struggle for independence. Israel argues that the program encourages Palestinian violence against innocent civilians.

The Trump administration agrees with Israel, and US President Donald Trump has personally appealed to PA President Mahmoud Abbas in past meetings to end the program. Senior administration officials told The Jerusalem Post that Trump supports the legislation and plans on signing it into law once it reaches his desk.

The law would dramatically halt US financial assistance to the PA absent reform, while retaining aid allotted to security cooperation and some humanitarian relief. After negotiating some wiggle room into the bill, granting the PA time to phase out the program, Democrats wholeheartedly endorsed the GOP-drafted legislation.

​The legislation passed the House of Representatives in December with bipartisan support.

“After over two years of very hard work, we are on the verge of having the Taylor Force Act become law,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, who authored and introduced the legislation. “This is one of the most significant pieces of legislation I’ve been involved with. The powerful message from the Force family, along with effort from the pro-Israel community led by Sander Gerber, have made this possible.”

For decades, the PA has provided monthly stipends to Palestinians convicted of murder or terrorism relative to the length of their prison sentences, and to the families of slain terrorists. The PA considered the program a fundamental pillar of its welfare system.

Trump’s Middle East peace team characterizes the practice as contrary to the pursuit of peace. But passage and implementation of the Taylor Force Act comes at a delicate time in US-PA relations, when the peace team is trying to lure Palestinians back to the table, and when the PA already sees the US as skewed against its interests.

American Jewish organizations and Israel advocacy organizations, including the American Jewish Committee and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, support the legislation. The bill is expected to pass within an omnibus spending package.

Taylor Force was an American Army veteran murdered by a Palestinian terrorist in Jaffa in 2016.

Jew-hating Muslim student group at UC-Santa Barbara endorses ‘Armed Resistance’

Without the accompanying news copy, one might think this photo was taken at al ISIS or al Qaeda training camp or any mujahadeen army waging holy war in the cause of Islam. But no, these photos are posted by Jew-hating Muslims at University of California, Santa Barbara in support of armed war against the Jewish state. And you hear no howls from the left-wing gun control oppressors who are working furiously to disarm law-abiding Americans. Armed Jew hating jihadis are sanctioned and celebrated by the left while leftist hordes manipulate our children to march against our gun rights.

ANTI-ISRAEL STUDENTS AT UC-SANTA BARBARA ENDORSE ‘ARMED RESISTANCE,’ SHARE IMAGES WITH PISTOL, AK-47

By Algemeiner , March 18,2018:

The anti-Zionist group Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) published a series of images on Monday that appeared to condone “armed resistance.”

The Facebook post included a photo of a Palestinian woman holding a pistol, as well as a cartoon — drawn in an outline of Israel and the Palestinian territories — depicting a woman with an AK-47 assault rifle.

Another photo featured an armed Leila Khaled, who helped hijack two planes in Europe on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The Marxist-Leninist group is blacklisted as a terrorist organization by the United States.

“Solidarity is the weapon and armed resistance is the catalyst,” SJP captioned the post. “Support all mujeres taking arms against imperialism.”

In response to criticism, a moderator of the page appeared to defend “the justified methods of those Palestinians seeking liberation from fascist Israeli occupation & apartheid.”

SJP said in a comment published below the post that it did “not condone bigotry against any group of people no matter their race, ethnicity, religion, class position, and/or gender & sexual orientation, etc.”

The original post was shared by SJP at the University of California, Santa Cruz, as well as a number of Facebook users who expressed concern about its content.

A spokesperson for UCSB did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
