Pro-Sharia, hijabbed Muslim Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar mocks Mike Pence’s Christian faith

Just imagine the establishment media uproar that would ensue if Pence had mocked Omar’s faith. But in this case, Leftist “journalists” will just join in with Omar and mock Pence themselves.
“Incoming Muslim Congresswomen Mock Pence’s Christian Faith,” by Patrick Goodenough, CNS News, December 13, 2018:

One of the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress took a snide dig on Twitter at Vice President Pence for sitting with eyes closed during a heated Oval Office meeting, posting a photo with the caption, “Jesus take the wheel!” – and the other incoming Muslim congresswoman applauded the insult.

Ihlan Omar’s (D-Minn.) tweet ended with the hashtag #BorderWall, a reference to the contentious issue discussed during President Trump’s meeting Tuesday with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)

The second Muslim woman elected to the House, Palestinian-American Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib, “liked” Omar’s Pence tweet….

France: Strasbourg Christmas market mass murderer is a Muslim named Cherif Chekatt

Watch in the coming days for the handwringing establishment media stories about how the local mosque in Strasbourg fears a “backlash,” and that Muslims are the real victims of jihad terror attacks.

Cherif Chekatt

“The assassin of Strasbourg is Cherif Chekatt, 29 years old and registered by the Police,” translated from “El asesino de Estrasburgo es Cherif Chekatt, de 29 años y registrado por la Policía,” okdiario, December 11, 2018:

The attacker is a 29-year-old man who was booked by the police for common crimes. Apparently, the gendarmes went to his house last Tuesday morning to arrest him, but he was not there. His name is Cherif Chekatt. Born on February 4, 1989, the son of Abdelkrim and Rouag Raoudja.

The gendarmes searched his house in the morning, having found four grenades there.

According to police sources, there has been a new shooting in the area where law enforcement officials are looking for the perpetrator of the shooting in the Christmas market in Strasbourg, which has caused two deaths and eleven wounded.

School drops Jesus’ name from Christmas song to avoid offending Muslims, 10-year-old girl gets it restored

“A 10-year-old girl launched a petition and managed to get Jesus’s name put into a school’s Christmas song after it was left out so as not offend the sensibilities of non-Catholic students.”

Come on. That wasn’t why it was left out. If the non-Catholic students were other Christians, they wouldn’t object to the mention of Jesus. Jews have been in Italy for centuries as it expressed its Christian culture, and schools never abdicated their Christian identity to appease them; nor did they demand such accommodation. This was done to avoid offending Muslims, and Muslims only. Kudos to this 10-year-old girl for taking the initiative and putting a stop to it.

“Girl, 10, gets Jesus into school Xmas song,” ANSA, November 30, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Merkel urged EU countries not to move their embassies to Jerusalem

It’s not just that appeasement and kowtowing to violent intimidation and bullying has been the West’s foreign policy for so long; even worse is the fact that the powerful forces that are trying to preserve it as a policy are so self-righteous about it.

“Merkel urged EU countries not to move embassies to Jerusalem,” by Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, December 4, 2018:

The founding director of the European Coalition for Israel in Brussels, Tomas Sandell, announced in a shocking video message on Thursday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel waged a campaign to prevent central and eastern European countries from moving their capitals to Jerusalem to preserve the Iran nuclear deal.

Sandell said in a Jerusalem Post exclusive report in November that Merkel called Romanian president, Klaus Iohannis, to convince him to not relocate his country’s embassy to Jerusalem. The move prompted him to go public.

Speaking from the European parliament, Sandell said, “What we have found out, something I heard for quite some time already, from central and eastern European countries that would have an inclination to move their embassy to Jerusalem, this is the natural thing for them to do, is that they have received phone calls from Berlin, from Angela Merkel, the chancellor. Basically, this cannot happen under any circumstances.”

“I have spoken to many Germans these last few days in Brussels,” he said. “They are not aware of this, and all of them would be shocked that all of the countries in the European Union today would want to block an embassy move to Jerusalem, not only for your own country, but for other countries that have the conviction [that] this is the right thing to do, the only country to do would be Germany. This is a big shock.”

He added that “this is something unprecedented. This is not the Germany we once knew. This is not the even Angela Merkel we once knew when she was elected.”

Sandell said many of Merkel’s telephone calls took place to European leaders in April when “many of the nations were seriously considering moving their embassies.”

Sandell said Merkel’s anti-Israel moves have to do with the Iran nuclear deal, which “has been very much supported by Germany [and] the German government.”

He added that Merkel’s move to block the relocation of embassies was also sparked by “how Germany did not block the marking of Israeli goods from disputed territories” in 2015. He said it was anticipated that Germany would stop the penalties against Israeli products. Germany instead implemented “this counterproductive measure” to punish Israeli goods, said Sandell….

Trump names Heather Nauert UN Ambassador, Hamas-linked CAIR calls her an ‘Islamophobe’

Who appointed CAIR the ultimate arbiter on who should occupy positions of authority? Western cowards have allowed the group to claim this status.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on the Trump administration to withdraw its nomination of Heather Nauert for the position of U.N. ambassador, saying she is “Unqualified and Islamophobic.”

Hamas-linked CAIR has a long memory. Here is what CAIR remembers:

In a 2009 Fox special on “stealth jihad,” she interviewed Islamophobic panelists, including notorious Islamophobes like Robert Spencer, Frank Gaffney and Nonie Darwish, who claims that “Islam should be feared, and should be fought, and should be conquered, and defeated, and annihilated.” Nauert has also defended Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric.

As for “stealth jihad,” the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan for North America was not written by Spencer, Gaffney and Darwish. It was written by a top Muslim Brotherhood operative.

Those who read the writings and listen to the speeches of Mr. Spencer know that CAIR’s charges are hollow. He is still waiting for feedback on the question of what exactly makes him “Islamophobic.” What news that is presented on Jihad Watch is fake? None. The problem is that according to Sharia, crimes, murder and abuses committed in the name of Islam are not supposed to be called out. Period. Speaking the truth renders one “Islamophobic,” so anyone who is literate and knows the abuses that are occurring in the name of Islam worldwide is “Islamophobic.”

“CAIR Opposes Nomination of U.N. Ambassador Nominee Heather Nauert”, PR Newswire, December 7, 2018:

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on the Trump administration to withdraw its nomination of Heather Nauert for the position of U.N. ambassador, saying she is “Unqualified and Islamophobic.”

Early next year, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a nomination hearing for Nauert. CAIR is urging the Senate and members of the Foreign Relations Committee to oppose and vote “NO” on Nauert’s nomination for the position of U.N. ambassador.

CAIR said Nauert promoted Islamophobic smears while employed as a Fox News anchor.

In 2013, she criticized special swim classes for a group of Somali-American girls, describing the classes as the “minority becoming the majority at one community pool. Sharia law is now changing everything.”

In a 2009 Fox special on “stealth jihad,” she interviewed Islamophobic panelists, including notorious Islamophobes like Robert Spencer, Frank Gaffney and Nonie Darwish, who claims that “Islam should be feared, and should be fought, and should be conquered, and defeated, and annihilated.” Nauert has also defended Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric.

Nauert previously bashed refugee students in Pennsylvania for wanting “an even better” public education and falsely claimed that child migrants from Central America were “an illegal health risk.”

Other than her current position as State Department spokesperson, Nauert has no apparent diplomatic or government experience or expertise.

“Heather Nauert does not represent our nation’s diversity or its commitment to treating all Americans with equality and respect,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.

“Such an important post should not be occupied by someone who is clearly unqualified and Islamophobic,” said CAIR Government Affairs Director Robert McCaw. “There are many other individuals who do have the knowledge and background necessary for this post. Ms. Nauert’s nomination should be withdrawn.”….

Pakistan’s Prime Minister denies Jesus’ existence, vows to spearhead international campaign against insulting Islam

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan remarked during a recent celebration of Muhammad’s birthday that while the life of Islam’s Muhammad “is part of history,” there is no “mention” of Jesus in human history. In the same speech, he vowed to stop the West from committing “blasphemy” against Muhammad. Once again, the arrow goes in one direction when it comes to insulting Islam or offending Muslims. It is perfectly acceptable to insult other religions, but lay off Islam.

Khan, directly following his election this past summer, vowed to take his campaign against blasphemy to the United Nations. He was referring to a planned Muhammad cartoon exhibit by Geert Wilders. Khan stated that “few in the West understand the pain caused to Muslims by such activities.”

But those rules of offense to one’s religion are exclusive to Islam. Khan plans to take the issue of offense to Islam to new heights worldwide. Right after his unprovoked comments about Christianity, he announced that Pakistan would spearhead “an international campaign against the defamation of Islam and make using freedom of speech as a pretext to commit blasphemy a crime.”

This brazen incursion against the freedom of speech is nothing new. The West has long been a target of Islamic blasphemy laws, and fatuous Western leaders have been genuflecting before Islamic supremacists in so-called “diversity” meetings that aim to force the “Islamophobia” agenda onto Western societies. The charge of “Islamophobia” is intended to silence critics of Islam.

Pakistan is a world leader in enforcing Islamic blasphemy laws. The US Department of State has put Pakistan “on a special watch list for ‘severe violations of religious freedom.’”

“Pakistani PM: ‘There Is No Mention of Jesus in History,’” by Edwin Mora, Breitbart, December 3, 2018:

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan recently remarked that, while the life of Islam’s Muhammad “is part of history,” there is no “mention” of Jesus in human history, the Times of Israel (TOI)reported on Friday.

“There were prophets of Allah other [than Muhammad], but there is no mention of them in human history. There is negligible mention of them. Moses is mentioned, but there is no mention of Jesus in history,” Khan proclaimed, TOI revealed, citing a translation posted by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

“But the entire life of Muhammad, who was Allah’s last prophet, is part of history,” the Pakistan leader added.

The Muslim premier’s comments came during an event marking Muhammad’s birthday on November 20, when Khan declared that Islamabad would spearhead an international campaign against the defamation of Islam and make using freedom of speech as a pretext to commit blasphemy a crime.

Nearly a year earlier, the U.S. State Department placed Pakistan on a special watch list for “severe violations of religious freedom.”

The campaign “would prevent people using freedom of speech as a cover for hurting the religious sentiments of Muslims around the world. Pakistan will spearhead the signing of this convention and make using freedom of speech to commit blasphemy a crime,” Khan said.

During his speech at the convention, Khan expressed anger over the publication of cartoons and other satirical portraying Muhammad in the West, arguing that the outrage that tends to ensue soon after the images are published are used to tarnish Islam.

Khan observed:

Every few years, in some Western country, our dear Prophet is blasphemed against and dishonored. What is the consequence of this? Muslims become angry. We take to the streets in protest, [protesters] break things in our country … It enables the enemies of Muslims to tell people in the West: ‘See, Islam is a big religion that spreads violence.’ They get an opportunity to spread propaganda against Islam.

The PM claimed that the European Union has admitted that no one can use freedom of expression as a pretext for blasphemy.

U.S. House passes legislation to aid Christian and Yazidi genocide victims in Iraq and Syria

Good to see that this initiative wasn’t decried as “Islamophobic.”

“Smith Bill to Help Christian Genocide Victims in Iraq and Syria,” Shore News Network, November 28, 2018:

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Rep. Chris Smith’s (R-NJ) legislation to provide humanitarian relief to genocide victims in Iraq and Syria, and hold ISIS perpetrators accountable—HR 390, the Iraq and Syria Genocide Relief and Accountability Act of 2018—passed the House on Tuesday night and now heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law, after over two years in the making.

“When genocide or other atrocity crimes are perpetrated, the United States should direct humanitarian, stabilization, and recovery aid to enable these people to survive–especially when they are minorities whose existence as a people is at-risk,” Smith stated on the House Floor before the vote. “HR 390 would ensure our actions match our words.” (Click here to read excerpts of Rep. Smith’s Floor remarks.)

Less than 200,000 Christians remain in Iraq, down from 1.4 million in 2002 and 500,000 in 2013, before ISIS swept through the region on its genocidal campaign. Many of the remaining Christians in Iraq are displaced, mostly in Erbil in the Kurdistan region, and need assistance to return to their homes and stay in Iraq. After the ISIS invasion, 60,000 Yazidis fled to Europe, and of the 550,000 Yazidis still in Iraq, 280,000 remain displaced and only 20 percent have been able to return to their historic homeland of Sinjar, according to the Yazdi organization Yazda. Those displaced will also need assistance to return to their homes.

Smith introduced the legislation in 2016 and again in 2017, with lead Democratic cosponsor Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA). “Tens of thousands of religious and ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria were targeted for genocide by ISIS between 2014 and 2017,” Rep. Eshoo said. “As survivors return to their homes and begin rebuilding their communities, the United States government must make it a priority to help families in need of assistance now, while ensuring the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity are held accountable. H.R. 390 will aid in these efforts and send a powerful message to these communities that we haven’t forgotten them. I thank Chairman Smith for his passionate leadership on this issue and I look forward to the President swiftly signing this legislation into law.”

Among other key provisions, H.R. 390 authorizes and directs the Administration to:

  • Fund entities, including faith-based ones, that are providing humanitarian, stabilization, and recovery aid on-the-ground to genocide survivors from religious and ethnic minorities;
  • Assess and address the humanitarian vulnerabilities, needs, and triggers that might force these survivors to flee;
  • Identify warning signs of deadly violence against religious and ethnic minority communities in Iraq or Syria that have been victims of genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes;
  • Support entities conducting criminal investigation into ISIS perpetrators of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Iraq – including collecting and preserving evidence that links specific perpetrators to specific atrocity crimes and is usable in a range of courts; and
  • Encourage foreign governments to add identifying information about suspected ISIS perpetrators to their security databases and security screening and to apprehend and prosecute perpetrators….

FBI: Anti-Semitic incidents surge, anti-Muslim hate crimes drop in 2017

Year after year, FBI hate crime statistics belie the establishment media myth that Muslims in the U.S. are subjected to widespread persecution, harassment, and discrimination. No targeting of any innocent person, Muslim or non-Muslim, is ever justified; the massive societal concern (and obsession on campuses) with “Islamophobia” and relative indifference to anti-Semitism is not reflected by the facts. It’s manipulative propaganda designed to deflect attention away from jihad activity and stymie counterterror efforts.

“FBI: Anti-Semitic incidents surge, Muslim hate crimes drop in 2017,” by Joseph Wolkin, World Israel News, November 23, 2018 (thanks to David):

According to data released by the FBI on Tuesday, anti-Semitic incidents increased by 37 percent last year, totalling 938 reports of anti-Jewish crime, excluding non-reported events.

The data revealed also showed a drop in Islamophobic crimes by 11 percent in 2017. There were 273 such incidents throughout the year.

Overall, hate crimes were up by 17 percent in 2017, marking the third straight year the FBI reported an increase in such cases.

The FBI said the spike is partially due to more police departments sharing hate crime information with the organization….

The number of hate crimes in 2017 increased to a total of 7,175, including attacks based on race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation – up from 6,121 in 2016.

Anti-Semitic crimes last year totaled about 13 percent of all reported incidents….

Pakistan: Asia Bibi, Christian woman acquitted of blasphemy, flown out of the country

The Muslim mobs who have been baying for her blood will be newly enraged, and may try to vent their wrath against the Pakistani government.

Asia Bibi

“Asia Bibi case: Pakistani woman acquitted of blasphemy flown out of country,” by Tom Powell, Evening Standard, November 7, 2018:

A Pakistani Christian woman acquitted of blasphemy eight years after being sentenced to death has is being flown out of the country for security reasons.

Amid tight security, Asia Bibi left a detention facility in Punjab province for a flight to the capital city Islamabad, officials said. Troops guarded the roads leading to the airport from which she departed.

Her lawyer Saif ul Malook said that she was being flown out of Pakistan with her immediate family but he did not know where they were going.

Authorities last month said they arrested two prisoners for allegedly conspiring to strangle her and since then additional police and troops have been deployed to the facility in Punjab.

Antonio Tajani, the president of the European parliament, tweeted: “Asia Bibi has left the prison and has been transferred to a safe place! I thank the Pakistani authorities.

“I look forward meeting her and her family, in the European Parliament as soon as possible.”

Ms Bibi’s move comes a week after the high court in a landmark ruling acquitted her and ordered her released.

It triggered nationwide protests and Ms Bibi’s release was put on hold on Friday after authorities held talks with radical Islamists who want her publicly hanged…
