The Trump effect: Honduras, Paraguay ‘ready in principle’ to relocate embassies to Jerusalem

Great leadership is always emulated.

President Trump’s righteous example is being followed by forward-thinking, freedom-loving world leaders.

Make no mistake: this is the just the beginning. Watch. But don’t look to conquered nations, those who have surrendered to Islamic tyranny such as the UK’s Theresa May or France’s Macron — they are yesterday’s men. Honduras and Paraguay represent the new dawning of freedom in the world.

“Honduras, Paraguay ‘ready in principle’ to relocate embassies to Jerusalem,” i24News, March 11, 2018 (thanks to Mark):

Paraguay and Honduras said they are both ready “in principle” to relocate their embassies to Jerusalem, on the condition that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu makes an official visit to their country, Army Radio reported on Sunday quoting a “senior Israeli diplomatic source.”

These comments followed on from Guatemala and, possibly the Czech Republic decision to follow suit from the United States’s December 6th decision.

Only seven countries — including Guatemala and Honduras — sided with the United States and Israel on a nonbinding December 21 UN General Assembly resolution rejecting US President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to move the currently situated Tel Aviv embassy to Jerusalem.

Although Paraguay has expressed pro-Israeli sentiment on a number of occasions, it abstained from the UN vote.

Netanyahu last year embarked on a diplomatic trip around Latin America last year, he did not stop in Paraguay or Honduras but met the former’s president Horacio Cartes in Buenos Aires, Argentina. There appears to be no current plans to visit the region in the near future.

US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley praised Honduras for standing by the US emphasized a special bond between the countries.

“That was not an easy decision for any country to have to vote on, but the people of Honduras stood with us in being able to make that decision for ourselves and decide where we want our embassy and to know that is our right,” Haley said, according to the Times of Israel, in a joint news conference with -elected Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez.

In February, Trump secured his embassy relocation intentions and announced that the move would coincide with Israel’s 70th anniversary celebrations on May 14, a day that is also marked by the Palestinians as ‘The Nakba’ or ‘The Catastrophe’ when approximately 760,000 were fled or driven from their homes.

Guatemala, following suit, announced in a speech at the pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC convention that its date for relocation would occur around a similar time, May 16. President Jimmy Morales defended the decision amid criticism from Palestinian factions and declared, “Israel is our ally and we must support it.”

“The state of Palestine considers this as a flagrant act of hostility against the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and international law,” the Palestinian foreign ministry said at the time, outright opposing Guatemala’s support for what they deem a “provocation.” Whilst Netanyahu has praised the decision.

The President of the Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman, in early March said the move was a “top priority” for him but acknowledged that “the subject is not currently on the agenda.” The Czech foreign ministry has reportedly opposed the move….

EU criticizes Israel over its legislation to revoke the permanent residency of those involved in ‘terrorism, treason or espionage’

It should be obvious to any and everyone that Europe is dominated by a ruling class that has no respect or regard for human rights and democracy, given its record of reckless immigration policies and its bullying of member nations to fulfill its demand for migrant quotas. It is common sense that any country at war should “revoke the permanent residency status of persons involved in terrorism, treason or espionage,” in the best interests of its citizens. Israel did just that, and is being criticized by the European Union because of it.

This week, the Israeli Knesset adopted legislation which empowers the Israeli Minister of Interior to revoke the permanent residency status of persons involved in terrorism, treason or espionage

While the EU claims that it “rejects terrorism in all its forms,” it simultaneously warns:

The new law could make the residency status of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, a protected population under International Humanitarian Law, even more precarious than it already is today. The new law could be used to further compromise the Palestinian presence in East Jerusalem, which would further undermine the prospects of a two-state solution.

Terrorists have never, nor will they ever, respond favorably to appeasement. The world is at war with jihadists, period. Jihadists have declared war on infidels, and they resort to extortion and violence, exploiting a victimology narrative to do so. The EU has stooped to allowing themselves to be manipulated in this way.

The world is divided in two for jihadists and Islamic supremacists: the House of War and the House of Islam. Israel is the House of War, as are all nations that are not under the sharia. All Western nations will do well to follow Israel’s example in revoking the permanent residency status (or citizenship) of enemies of their nations.

Canada had a similar situation when former Liberal Immigration Minister John McCallum“introduced legislation to repeal a Conservative law that stripped Canadian citizenship from dual nationals convicted of terrorism-related offences.” The revocation of the Conservative law was announced last summer, allowing Canadian citizens convicted of terrorism to keep their Canadian citizenship under the Trudeau government.

McCullum’s view was that “a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian….It is our profound belief that there should be one class of Canadian.” To the imprudent McCullum, Islamic State jihadists are  equal to law-abiding Canadian citizens. To McCullum, the ringleader of the Toronto 18, Zakaria Amara, is as much of a Canadian as Justin Trudeau.

Amara was involved in a 2006 plot to “detonate a truck bomb in downtown Toronto, storm Parliament Hill and behead the prime minister.” Amara’s citizenship was revoked under the former Conservative Stephen Harper government, as it should have been. Jason Kenney — the former Conservative immigration minister — accurately tweeted: “This man hated Canada so much, he planned on murdering hundreds of Canadians. He forfeited his own citizenship.” Under the Trudeau Liberals, murderous jihadists regained their Canadian citizenship as equals to all Canadians, despite their deep hatred for Canada and their war with the country.

The EU has been likewise accepting of jihadists and Islamic supremacists, at the expense of law-abiding citizens. It has been bullying its member countries relentlessly to accept its migrant quota rules. It does not matter to the EU that the hijrah has already proven disastrous for Europe. Now the EU is forcing itself into Israel’s business when it has no jurisdiction to do so.

The European Union will closely monitor if and how this new law is applied to Palestinians in East Jerusalem

The EU’s reaction to Israel is odious, and will only encourage the growing specter of anti-Semitism that has seized Europe since the new hijrah began.

“Europe criticizes Israel over legislation on terrorism”, by Elad Benari, Arutz Sheva, March 9, 2018:

The European Union (EU) on Friday issued a sharply worded statement in which it criticized the law that was approved this week in the Knesset, which allows the permanent residency of terrorists to be revoked.

“This week, the Israeli Knesset adopted legislation which empowers the Israeli Minister of Interior to revoke the permanent residency status of persons involved in terrorism, treason or espionage,” the statement said.

While the EU stressed it “rejects terrorism in all its forms”, it warned that “the new law could make the residency status of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, a protected population under International Humanitarian Law, even more precarious than it already is today. The new law could be used to further compromise the Palestinian presence in East Jerusalem, which would further undermine the prospects of a two-state solution.”

“In line with international law, the European Union does not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the territories occupied by Israel since June 1967, including East Jerusalem, and does not consider them to be part of Israel’s territory, irrespective of their legal status under domestic Israeli law,” it said.

“The European Union will closely monitor if and how this new law is applied to Palestinians in East Jerusalem,” the statement concluded……

U.S. Agents Untrained to Vet Islamic Saboteurs, Have Poor Grasp of Radical Islamic Threat

This should come as no surprise. I’ve been warning about this for years: the Obama administration several years ago scrubbed all mention of the jihad doctrine and Islam from all counter terror training materials. Jihadists associated with Muslim Brotherhood groups such as CAIR were called in to “train” law enforcement to submit to sharia restrictions on speech.

This is the poison fruit of that policy: agents who have no idea of what they’re dealing with when they encounter jihad terrorists.

“US agents untrained to vet Islamic radicals, have poor grasp of jihadist threat, experts warn,” RT, March 7, 2018 (thanks to Graham):

US law enforcers aren’t trained to detect Islamic radicals, which enabled a suspected Al-Qaeda-linked jihadist to remain off the radar in America for seven years, attorney Jennifer Breedon told RT.

Saudi national, Naif Abdulaziz Alfallaj, who trained at the Al-Qaeda camp in Afghanistan together with some of the 9/11 plane hijackers, was detained in Oklahoma in February. He arrived in the US on a non-immigrant visa back in 2011 and lived freely in the country, even taking pilot lessons. It took the US security agencies a whole seven years to match the fingerprints from Al-Qaeda papers obtained in Afghanistan in 2011 with the prints in its database and reveal Alfallaj’s true identity. The man now faces up to 20 years in prison for two counts of visa fraud and lying to the FBI about his terrorist links.

Breedon, an attorney specializing in foreign policy, international law and religious terrorism, believes that the Alfallaj affair shows “an ongoing failure of the US – and also Europe – to properly vet these people and for our law enforcement to even understand the nature of radical Islamists.”

“Why this person was able to go under the radar; why he went all the way through the State Department vetting process – because there’s no vetting process that vets for extremist religious ideology,” she said. According to the attorney, the employees of the relevant US agencies “haven’t been properly trained” and are unaware of the most basic things, like who the Wahhabis are and what Sharia Law is.

“It’s very likely that [Alfallaj] didn’t even have to try hard to deceive” the US authorities, Breedon said. “The State Department is asking questions and they’re expecting an honest answer. And these people, especially, if they have terrorist ties or connections, are never going to be honest on a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questionnaire… If we don’t know how to read between the lines or truly understand their ideology we’ll continue to not catch these people.”

The jihadists are able to freely come and stay in the US unhampered because “the FBI has many problems right now,” Breedon said. “The FBI has been too busy with trying to harm President Donald Trump… or trying to go after these supposed Russian hackers. You have the FBI spending… millions of dollars for the special investigation into these things the American people don’t care about, so it’s very likely that something as important as allowing a terrorist to get a US visa would fall under the rug.”

Another unhelpful thing is the Western model of “we can’t offend anybody,” Breedon believes. In 2016, when Omar Mateen killed 49 people and injured 58 others at an Orlando gay club, “the FBI had ample warning that the Orlando attacker was a threat, but because he was Muslim they didn’t want to look into it; they didn’t want to be seen as targeting a certain religious group – and because of that lots of people died.”

Breedon also refuted the FBI’s claims that it needs more funding to be effective, reminding that “reports have come out with school shootings in the US where the FBI many times received a phone call warning them about these shooters and… the FBI didn’t follow up. It’s not so much a lack of resources as it is a lack of knowledge and understanding about threats that matter the most,” she said….

VIDEO: ‘See Something, Say Nothing’ — connecting the dots from 9/11 to Orlando

PODCAST: Interview with DHS Whistleblower Philip B. Haney author of “See Something, Say Nothing”

EDITORS NOTE: This column originally appeared in The Geller Report. Pamela Geller’s shocking new book, “FATWA: HUNTED IN AMERICA” is now available on Amazon. It’s Geller’s tell all, her story – and it’s every story – it’s what happens when you stand for freedom today. Buy it. Now. Here.

FBI to Judge: Dismiss lawsuit before the public learns details about the ISIS attack in Texas

The Judge could grant dismissal of the lawsuit. So it is pointless to ask about our alleged role in the jihad attack, says the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its own defense, through its mouthpiece, the Department of Justice.

But the FBI failed to state a court rule, statute or “good cause” to prevent all discovery, responds the Plaintiff.

This lawsuit’s allegations are detailed in a previous article on the Geller Report here.1

Arguments concern whether to immediately conduct discovery – interrogatories, requests to produce, depositions, etc. – concurrent with a pending Motion to Dismiss. The following are excerpts of the USA / FBI’s Motion 2 and Memorandum [DM/pg];3 Plaintiff’s Response [PR/pg];4 and the USA / FBI’s Reply [DR/pg].5

USA / FBI’s Motion for Relief

The Motion seeks “to relieve the parties from the reporting requirements set forth in the Court’s order dated January 16, 2018…, to abstain from entering a scheduling order, and for a stay of discovery while the United States’ motion to dismiss … is pending.”

USA / FBI’s Memorandum    

“Plaintiff alleges that he was shot in the leg while working as a security guard at an event called the ‘First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest’ at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas on May 3, 2015 (‘the event’). The shooting occurred when Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, whom Plaintiff describes as ‘two members of the international terrorist organization ISIS,’ attempted to carry out a mass-shooting at the event.” [DM/1-2]

“[A]s a practical matter, it is especially difficult (and unnecessary) at this juncture for case management deadlines to be set, given that the parties’ briefing on the sovereign immunity issue is not yet complete and it is thus unknown when the issue will be resolved … If the motion [to dismiss] is granted, then the need for a scheduling order will no longer exist. Alternatively, if the motion is denied or granted in part, this Court’s ruling may reduce the number of claims and narrow the scope of discovery.” [DM/4]

“Staying discovery in this action while the motion to dismiss is pending is more than simply appropriate – it is necessary to preserve the United States’ sovereign immunity.” [DM/5]

“A stay of discovery is especially justified here given the nature of the information likely to be sought during discovery by Plaintiff. On its face, the Complaint makes clear that it challenges alleged Government conduct [the FBI] taken during the course of a national security counterterrorism investigation. As such, there is a strong likelihood that much of the information Plaintiff will seek from the FBI is classified and law enforcement sensitive information over which the Government will assert claims of privilege to prevent its disclosure. To be sure, in pending federal criminal proceedings related to the events at issue in this case, the Government continues to protect such information from disclosure.” [DM/6-7]

The counter-terrorism investigation, particularly concerning the jihad attack here, has resulted in criminal proceedings against three defendants: (1) Erick Jamal Hendricks, who will be tried in March, 2018;6 (2) Abdul Khabir Wahid, who will be tried in May, 2018;7 and (3) Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, who was convicted in February, 2017, but he has a pending appeal.8

Plaintiff’s Response

“The purpose of pre-dismissal discovery is to find factual support for a plaintiff’s argument that the conduct at issue is not discretionary, and thus not covered by the discretionary function exception.” [PR/7, fn1]

“If Congress had intended for a stay on discovery to be imposed anytime Defendant raises the discretionary function exception in a motion to dismiss, then some federal rule [of court procedure] or statute would say so.” [PR/8]

“Given that no Scheduling Conference has even been held, and no discovery requests have even been sent, Defendant’s Motion to Stay is premature–as it cannot yet determine whether it will suffer ‘annoyance, embarrassment, oppression, or undue burden or expense’ by proceeding as usual. If Defendant receives specific discovery requests that are oppressive or pose an undue burden to respond to–then Defendant can object to those particular requests. Defendant is also free to invoke privilege when any information requested by Plaintiff is subject to privilege. But insisting on a blanket stay of all discovery–when no good cause has been definitively demonstrated–goes too far. Defendant has not met its ‘heavy burden’ and demonstrated good cause to sidestep the general rule in favor of discovery.” [PR/5-6]

“Even if the Court were to find some merit in Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss, Plaintiff would likely be allowed an opportunity to amend its pleadings to cure any defects.” [PR/6]

USA / FBI’s Reply

“The burden of going through the painstaking process of reviewing such materials in response to a discovery request is, quite frankly, self-evident. Placing such a burden on the FBI, which already bears a heavy workload dealing with discovery in numerous legal actions throughout the country as well as Congressional requests, is the very sort of intrusion into sovereign immunity that should be avoided until the threshold legal issues are decided.” [DR/2].

U.S. Taxpayers are owed explanations for the FBI’s alleged action or inaction

What do the majority of mass shootings have in common? All levels of government, particularly the FBI, apparently did not “connect the dots” and therefore “dropped the ball” to prevent the attacks.

Hypothetical: Entrapment is not a defense when the perpetrator was predisposed to commit the crime. However, consider: Is an undercover law enforcement officer considered a co-conspirator if his words originatethe crime, and his acts contribute to the crime?

As this Complaint alleges:

“[On] (May 2, 2015), Hendricks and UCE-1 again chatted online about the upcoming Garland event. Hendricks wrote, ‘I wish someone could go to tx and harass them during the night;’ ‘a good solid protest;’ and ‘Unique one man protest.’ After Hendricks explained that he was unable to go because he was on the no-fly list and it was ‘too much driving,’ UCE-1 then volunteered to go. UCE-1 then asked, ‘Just me or any other brothers?’ Hendricks responded, ‘See what you and bro [Simpson] can do,’ and added that Simpson ‘has another brother he knows’ (presumably Soofi). Hendricks then provided ICE-1 with Simpson’s alternate Twitter contact.” [Complaint ¶ 34].

Assume the above is true and consider: But-for the FBI’s undercover agent effectively having “green-lighted” the attack, and offered himself to go and facilitate it, would there have been a jihad attack in Garland, Texas? If not, then Plaintiff – a security guard – would not have been shot, and suffer emotional distress.

President Obama did more than seek to protect Islam as a minority religion in the United States. His words and deeds advocated for, and promoted, Islam.

The Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are under the Executive branch. The FBI ostensibly has provided briefings to the President. Using every scandal’s inquiry: What did President Obama know, and when did he know it?

Angela Merkel admits that ‘no-go zones’ exist in Germany

How times have changed. It wasn’t very long ago at all that anyone who noted the obvious existence of no-go zones in Europe was excoriated as a racist, bigoted “islamophobe,” and denounced by the highest authorities. The Mayor of Paris even threatened to sue Fox News for reporting on no-go zones.

In Germany, Merkel is more responsible than anyone else for the creation of these “no go zones,” and by admitting that they exist is simply trying to co-opt the growing and increasingly vocal opposition to her suicidal immigration policies. She did this before, calling for limitations on immigration just before the last election in Germany. But she is the one who got Germany into this fix. She won’t be the one to get Germany out of it.

“Angela Merkel admits that ‘no-go zones’ exist in Germany,” by Adam Shaw, Fox News, March 1, 2018 (thanks to Lukasz):

German Chancellor Angela Merkel made a major concession to Europe’s populist movement this week when she admitted the existence of so-called “no-go zones” in Germany.

Conservatives and populists have long warned of the existence of such zones as the partial consequence of mass Muslim migration from the Middle East and Africa, particularly after Merkel opened Germany’s borders in 2015 as a response to the Syrian refugee crisis. Such areas are said to be dogged by high-levels of crime and are described as “no-go zones” because outsiders, including police and other authorities, are unable to enter.

Despite evidence of the existence of areas in Western countries, European leaders and left-wing media commentators have long denied, and sometimes even mocked, those who claim that no-go zones exist.

But Merkel, who won Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” in 2015 in part because of her open-borders stance, mentioned their existence in an interview this week with German broadcaster n-tv as she called for a zero-tolerance policy on crime.

She said that people have a right to feel safe when they meet in public places. When asked to clarify, she specified that she was talking about no-go zones.

“It means for example that there cannot be any no-go areas, that there cannot be areas where no-one dares to go but there are such places,” she said. “One has to call them by name and do something about it.”

The Associated Press reported that it had left fellow lawmakers “speechless.” The remarks quickly spread across Europe, fueling and encouraging nationalist-populist politicians who have pushed back against lax immigration policies.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government, which has been under siege from the European Union for its hardline stance on asylum seekers, hailed Merkel’s comments as a victory.

“Today, it seems this taboo has been broken. Guess who is talking about ‘no-go zones’?” a blog post on the Hungarian government’s official website said.

“That we’re finally calling them by name signals a step in the right direction,” it said….

Muslim gang repeatedly raped teen girl over two-year period, police did nothing

“The prosecutor described how nothing was done by police until years later when the victim rang the television studio.”

The police who turned this girl away and did nothing about her allegations were no doubt afraid of being accused of being “racist” and “Islamophobic” if they arrested the members of this Muslim rape gang. But the fault doesn’t lie with them. They’re just low-level functionaries. The fault lies with those who created the society-wide impression that it was more important not to appear “Islamophobic” than to bring justice to these girls. Those include Theresa May and others in the British government, and Leftist activists including Nick Lowles and Fiyaz Mughal, who repeatedly charged those who were calling attention to the Muslim rape gangs with “racism.” If Britain were a sane society, which it most decidedly isn’t, these people would be recognized for the traitors they are, removed from all positions of responsibility and influence, and prosecuted where possible.

“Teenage girl ‘raped by a gang of Asian men during two-year ordeal was finally treated as a victim when her boyfriend phoned TV news studio after she saw report on Rotherham abuse scandal,’” by Abe Hawken, Mailonline, February 27, 2018:

A 16-year-old girl was raped by a gang of Asian men who were finally arrested when her partner phoned a TV news studio after she watched a report on sex abuse, a court heard today.

The girl, who was allegedly abused over a two-year period, asked her partner to call the BBC Look North studio in Yorkshire after viewing their piece which related to the Rotherham sex abuse scandal.

She was a resident of a care home after having a turbulent upbringing when the alleged sexual abuse started, Bradford Crown Court was told.

A jury was told that the girl later ran away from the home with a friend and a bottle of vodka and the pair headed towards the city centre.

The prosecution allege one of the men approached two girls in a car and offered to take them to buy a lighter in 2008, just months after they had both been placed into the care home.

In the months that followed, the girls were subjected to a range of sexual abuse at the hands of the ten men through a variety of different methods ‘to satisfy their sexual desires’, the court was told.

The men subsequently arrested deny a total of 25 charges including rape and sexual assault against the same alleged victim over the period of July 2009 to July 2011.

One of the group, Basharat Khaliq, 37, also allegedly raped a friend of the main victim, who the whole gang are accused of sexually abusing….

One of the charges of rape against him refers to a situation where the girl, who would call the defendant ‘Bash’, was allegedly raped in the front seat of a car.

The court heard how workers at the care home – where both girls lived – had concerns about where they were when they would repeatedly run away – but because it was not a restrictive unit they had no power to stop the teens.

Both girls who had been approached by Khaliq in 2008 were allegedly left on Baildon Moor by the defendant in 2009.

The prosecution said ‘a male was contacted by [the victim] who collected her’. This defendant was Saeed Akhtar, known as ‘Sid’, the prosecution allege.

The property in which much of the abuse is alleged to have taken place is the house in which he lived.

The court was told the second victim was passed between men and repeatedly told she was in a relationship with them in order to cover the abuse.

The prosecutor said the girl was ‘cynically manipulated’ by the defendants, who each visited the house during ‘parties’ which involved drugs and alcohol.

On one occasion, the prosecutor detailed how the victim had taken 22 lines of cocaine in a single night and once addicted to the drug ‘was easy to control’….

The original operation investigated sexual exploitation in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

She said: ‘When girls or suspects were found police were given the task of finding them. On July 13 [the victim’s] phone number cropped up.

‘Her phone number was found on a piece of paper and police contacted her.

‘[The victim] could not give relevant information to the operation; however, she explained her own experience of growing up.

‘She told them she had been given alcohol and drugs and had become an addict. She said she was pleased to see they were investigating.’

The prosecutor described how nothing was done by police until years later when the victim rang the television studio.

She said: ‘By then there was much more coverage of Rotherham. [The victim] had watched and seen news reports knowing what had happened to her.

‘Frustrated at the lack of coverage… her partner contacted Look North, telling them the abuse was ‘much wider than Rotherham’.’…

Khaliq, 37, of Bradford, denies one charge of assault by penetration against the first alleged victim and five charges of rape against a second woman.

Saeed Akhtar, 54, of Bradford, denies two charges of causing or inciting child prostitution and one charge of rape.

Naveed Akhtar, 42, and Izar Hussain, 31, both of Bradford, deny three charges of rape, with Hussain also denying an additional allegation of attempted rape.

Mohammed Usman, 30, of Bradford, and Kieran Harris, 27, of Dewsbury, both pleaded not guilty to two charges of rape.

Yasar Majid, 36, of Milton Keynes, denies a single charge of rape, and Fahim Iqbal, 26, of no fixed abode, pleaded not guilty to aiding and abetting rape.

Zeeshan Ali, 31, of Bradford, denies a single charge of sexual assault.

Parvaze Ahmed, 35, of Bradford, denies three charges of rape….

President Trump’s Envoy to Israel Tells Abbas, Palestinians to ‘Stop Denying Jewish History’

Jason Greenblatt, who is President Donald Trump’s special envoy to the Middle East, told Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to quit denying the true history of Jerusalem and its connection to the Jewish people.

Greenblatt made the comments in response to Abbas’s remarks at a youth festival about how the Arabs amd Christians are the rightful owners of Jerusalem — while conveniently omitting the Jews.

Jerusalem, of course, was established by God for his chosen Jewish people, according to biblical history. And failure to acknowledge that has fueled almost all the anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence in recent years.

Here, Greenblatt visited with Hamas in January:

Israel Today has more on his response to Abbas:

As far as Israel is concerned, denial of the Jewish historical and religious connection to this land, and especially to Jerusalem, is the primarily roadblock to peace at present.

Finally, it would seem that the American government agrees.

US President Donald Trump’s special Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt, on Thursday blasted Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas for failing to mention that Jerusalem’s connection to the Jewish people.

On Tuesday, Abbas addressed a Palestinian youth festival and repeatedly told the young Arabs that Jerusalem is and always has been a city for Muslims and Christians. No mention of Jews.

According to Greenblatt, that kind of rhetoric only pushes peace further away.

“Pres. Abbas states about Jerusalem: ‘it is Arab, Muslim, and Christian.’ And makes no mention of any Jewish ties. Nothing peaceful or productive can come from statements like this,” Greenblatt wrote on Twitter.

“Lasting peace will not be achieved by denying Judaism’s thousands of years of ties to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is holy to Muslims, Christians, and Jews,” he added.

All of the Palestinian Authority’s most hard-line positions are based on the premise that the Jews have no right to be here.

Furthermore, Israel believes that a genuine, long-lasting peace can only be achievable if it’s built upon a foundation of truth and acceptance of documented historical fact.

Muslim Student: NY City’s Manhattan College ‘overrun by Islamic proselytizing, Balkan Muslims turning to jihad’

I just received this extraordinary email from a Muslim student at Manhattan College in the Bronx. It is noteworthy not just for this student’s courage in thinking for himself and not passively accepting what he is taught either at home or at his far-left college, but also for what he reveals about the Balkan Muslim community in New York (“rapidly moving toward radical beliefs”) and about Manhattan College (“Every hallway, every classroom, every announcement, every email; contains an extreme amount of Islamic advertising”).

This is true not just of Manhattan College, but of colleges and universities all over the country. Likewise I’m sure that other Muslim communities in the U.S. are moving in the same direction as the one to which this courageous young man belongs. It won’t be very much longer before America begins to see on a large scale what folly the Democrats’ immigration and counterterror policies really have been, and what damage they have brought upon our country.

Hello Pamela,

I am a Muslim Albanian college student and I attend Manhattan College in Riverdale NY. I am shocked to say that I have only recently stumbled upon your web-page and YouTube videos. I have criticized Jihad and Radical Islam since as long as I can remember and continue to do so despite being ridiculed. My family is from Montenegro and was not religious prior to coming to the United States in 80’s, and continues to be the same. Nobody prays or even goes to the Mosque. Manhattan College is a Lasallian Catholic institution who’s tuition can hit up to 60K a year. Every hallway, every classroom, every announcement, every email; contains an extreme amount of Islamic advertising whether it be a club, or a prayer meeting or even an event.(The walls of every hallway are covered with flyers) I am outraged that my professors are all brainwashed by a left wing ideology which I have said long before I found out about you, is in an alliance with Islam. The only thing that tells you you’re at a catholic school is our chapel. Being educated by these leftists makes school practically worthless, and it is become extremely hard for me to choose a path in academia where I would feel that I am not wasting time, and one that would benefit me.

My reason for sending this email is to tell you that you are an inspiration and a true patriot for the country we are loyal to and love. After reading Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Balkan articles on your webpage, I was not surprised at all. My position on Serbia is similar to yours but happens to be an unthinkable one within the Albanian community. I believe that there is reason to believe that the Albanian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin community (which are pretty much one and the same) in the United States and New York in particular is rapidly moving toward radical beliefs. The community talks about many families who are extremely religious and are more like Arabs than they are Albanians. I have no tangible evidence of this other than my few experiences and hear-say, but I believe it is my duty to report this, which I see as a potential threat to the nation to which I pledge allegiance; to those who are currently in positions to investigate, bring light to, and make changes. A closer look needs to be taken at Balkan People, who they associate themselves/have economic ties with back in Europe, and who their link is to the Islamic world, which I happen to believe is Turkey. At the current time I do not wish to be in the public eye for any reason, and I would appreciate if for some reason this email would be talked about, that my name is not used, but that is subject to change in the near future as our battle continues to get harder.

Thank You and God Bless You,
[Name redacted]

Swedish Defense College: Fear of being called ‘racist’ crippling police efforts to counter Islamic terrorism

“You risk being identified as racist in a way that you did not see in other European countries. There, this question was as uncontroversial as the importance of combating Nazism and right-wing extremism.”

What European countries is he talking about? Maybe Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, but that’s about it. Otherwise the charge of “racism,” and fear of that charge, is crippling efforts to counter jihad terrorism all over Europe, and in North America as well.

“The race card allows authorities to curb work against jihadism,” translated from “Rasistkortet får myndigheter att bromsa arbete mot jihadism,” by Dick Erixon, Samtiden, February 11, 2018:

For fear of being called racist, authorities in Sweden have not been able to track violent jihadists, and therefore some slipped away to other countries, according to researchers at the Center for Asymmetric Threats and Terrorism Studies at the Defense College.

The race card is roughly abused in Sweden, mostly in terms of stopping public analyses and efforts to counter severe Islamist crimes, such as attacks on women and terrorism.

Last month, a book about honor-related violence came out that again accuses Swedes of racism and “abusive stereotypes of immigrants,” instead of taking the risks of religious fundamentalism seriously.

These leftist forces have gained power over the public by constantly accusing anyone who raises these problems of being racist. This has meant that authorities systematically downplay and neglect the problems. It becomes easier and more comfortable to denounce and condemn ordinary Swedes for extremism and prejudice.

This cowardice has distorted the reality of Sweden in such a way that the country is less prepared than other countries to face religious extremism. Sweden has become a breeding ground for jihadists because Swedish authorities, ranging from social services to police, are blind to extremism and let it thrive — for fear of being called racist.

This is noticeable in several ways. The number of people traveling from Sweden to the war in Syria to join the Islamic State and other terrorist networks has been around 300, which is the second most in the EU in relation to our population.

A study from the Swedish Defense College last autumn, based on data from Säpo, showed that the number of violent Islamist extremists in Sweden has increased thirtyfold in seven years. This summer, it was estimated that the number of jihadists was about 2,300. In 2000, the number was estimated at 200 people.

In an interview for SVT today, Peder Hyllengren, researcher at the Swedish Defense College, says that the security work against violent jihadism has been slowing down in Sweden for a long time, because there is an activism that made it difficult for politicians and others to engage in this issue.

“You risk being identified as racist in a way that you did not see in other European countries. There, this question was as uncontroversial as the importance of combating Nazism and right-wing extremism,” he says.

But in Sweden, the accusation of racism can lead to unmitigated tragedy. The result has been that the state and the authorities are not able to carry out the work of maintaining the security of the Swedish people. It’s serious….
