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….

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):

(ANSA) – Venezia, November 30 – 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….

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….

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…

Google Translate censors obscene insult of Muhammad, allows it for Jesus

Jihad Watch reader C. Nicholson sent me this interesting message about Google’s automated Google Translate feature. Pardon the language, and the insulting phrases. I don’t condone this kind of speech regarding anyone, but there is an important principle revealed here: more Sharia-adherence from Google.

Message: Look at what I found out:

Arabic for “shit”:

https://translate.google.com/#en/ar/Shit

Arabic for “Jesus eats shit”:
https://translate.google.com/#en/ar/Jesus%20eats%20shit

Arabic for “Muhammad eats shit,” according to Google:
https://translate.google.com/#en/ar/Mohammed%20eats%20shit.

(Be sure to translate in both directions to verify that the word “shit” is being censored when it is used in context with “Muhammad,” and only then. I.E. click the handy swappy arrows)

Evidently Google has no problem allowing its tools to be used to insult Christians, but won’t allow the same tools to be used to insult Muslims. Once again, we see the establishment of Muslims as a special protected class, accorded accommodations not offered to other groups.

Catholic Church sets out a vision for closer ties with Islam

Had Charles Martel and the Franks lost their battle against the jihadis at Tours in 732, the eighteenth-century English historian Edward Gibbon envisioned the continent’s complete Islamization:

A victorious line of march had been prolonged above a thousand miles from the rock of Gibraltar to the banks of the Loire; the repetition of an equal space would have carried the Saracens to the confines of Poland and the Highlands of Scotland; the Rhine is not more impassable than the Nile or Euphrates, and the Arabian fleet might have sailed without a naval combat into the mouth of the Thames. Perhaps the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the sanctity and truth of the revelation of Mahomet.

And now here we are: the jihadis lost at Tours, but their defeat was not complete, and now victory is at hand: “the interpretation of the Koran” is now “taught in the schools of Oxford,” or at least at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. Is there a Center for Christian Studies at al-Azhar? Of course not. Has any Islamic entity ever sought improved ties with the Catholic Church? Don’t be silly.

“Dialogue” and interfaith outreach always and in every case go only one way, with fond Christians such as Vincent Nichols appealing for peace and friendship to Muslim leaders, who use the resulting “dialogue” to silence Christians who are talking about Muslim persecution of Christians and the Qur’an’s teaching regarding Christianity, and to engage in subtle dawah, Islamic proselytizing, with the participating Christians, and in any documents resulting from the “dialogue.”

So Vincent Nichols is pictured here planting a tree at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, but that isn’t the only hole he is digging.

“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

“Catholic Church sets out a vision for closer ties with Islam,” by Michael Binyon, The Times, March 3, 2018 (thanks to David):

How can dialogue between faiths lead to a deeper spiritual understanding? Is there not always a danger that both sides will talk across each other without listening or just agree on the bare minimum they have in common?

These questions were raised this week by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the Archbishop of Westminster, when he made the first visit by the head of the Roman Catholic Church in Britain to the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, the dazzling new college that aims to become the country’s principal centre for the academic study of Islam.

He said that dialogue between faith and society would be “significantly impoverished” if dialogue between faiths were characterised by suspicion and hostility or were simply non-existent….

Muslim columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown says Christmas is “Islamophobic”

Christmas is a time where Christians pick on Muslims in the United Kingdom, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown claimed Friday in the International Business Times

There is no end to the deception and constant screaming of “Islamophobia” at every turn. What better way to turn the perception of victimhood around? The report below discusses Alibhai-Brown’s “decrying ‘Muslim panic stories,’” but what she wrote was much worse than that. In the International Business Times, she actually compares “Islamic ultra-conservatives” to Westerners attacking Muslims:

We Muslims can’t win. If we join in, we are interlopers, gate crashers or faith traitors. If we don’t, we imperil the nation, insult its God and identity. The crusade is still with us and playing out under twinkling fairy lights.

It is astonishing that the International Business Times would actually publish this malarkey. No one has ever decried Muslims or anyone choosing not to celebrate Christmas; however, “Islamic ultra conservatives” certainly harass Muslims who choose to do so. Here’s more from “Islamic ultra-conservatives”:

  • “jihadist forum” published the image of “Santa Claus being beheaded against the backdrop of a London shopping area,” while the Islamic State threatened terror attacks on Christmas in all major Western cities.
  • Indonesian Muslim clerics threatened to crack down on Muslims wearing Santa hats, in a fatwa against Christmas.
  • “pro-Islamic State group” issued a call for followers to “attack the Vatican on Christmas.” The Islamic State also vowed to take “Christmas blood.”
  • Islamic leader Abu Ibraheem Husnayn, in Birmingham, UK, “said that Muslims ‘have to hate’ the likes of Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Diwali, and Hannukah, because they are ‘hated by Allah’”.

The tactic of playing the victim and distracting from the acts of Islamic supremacists and jihadists continues to be favored among those who are forcing the “Islamophobia” agenda upon Western societies. While countless victims suffer at the hands of jihadists, their cries of agony are drowned out by charges of that “loathsome term” “Islamophobia.”

Only yesterday, a Muslim man drove into a crowd of people in Melbourne and then complained about “mistreatment of Muslims” after his arrest.

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown also once proclaimed that she did not like white men and wanted them to be a lost species; she also called working class white people “stupid,” “vicious” and “scum”; yet here she is playing the victim.

“Yasmin Alibhai-Brown: Christmas is Islamophobic!”, Breitbart, December 22, 2017:

Christmas is a time where Christians pick on Muslims in the United Kingdon, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown claimed Friday in the International Business Times.

Decrying “Muslim panic stories”, Alibhai-Brown wrote:

Every year, in the lead up to Christmas, tabloids run turkey (that is, dumb and stupid) stories about Muslims objecting to the festival, cards, crackers, music, trees, pressies, paper hats, church services, mince pies, street decorations, and ho-ho-hoing Santas.

Such culture alarms are now an annual ritual, an essential part of the season. They reassure those lost souls who want all their Christmases to be white.

Many of the reports are cooked up, some rely on unverified gossip….

Muslims plot to assassinate the Pope: “This will be the last Pope”

These poor dears just don’t understand their own religion! Pope Francis needs to go visit them personally, and explain to them how “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form of violence.” If they don’t speak Italian, he could take along some Arabic-speaking Eastern Catholic bishop with a solid record of upholding the Church’s new iron dogma, that Islam is a Religion of Peace.

After they learn about the true, peaceful Islam, these four Muslims will embrace the Pope joyfully and allow him to put flowers in their gun barrels. The happy group can send out for pizza and start a hearty round of “Muslim-Christian dialogue” that will fix this problem right up. Why didn’t anybody think of this before? When will the Pope arrive and begin explaining Islam to these Muslims?

“Suspected jihadists ‘threatened Pope Francis,’” The Local, December 1, 2015:

UPDATED: Four people arrested in Italy and Kosovo on suspicion of spreading jihadist propaganda online allegedly made threats against Pope Francis and the former US ambassador to Kosovo.

The gang also praised the Paris terrorist attacks, in which 130 people were killed on November 13th.

The four, all Kosovan citizens, were arrested as part of an anti-terror sweep conducted by police in Brescia in cooperation with Kosovan authorities, Corriere reported.

Described as “a highly dangerous group” with alleged links to jihadists in Syria, they are accused of “condoning terrorism” and “inciting racial hatred”.

Carmine Esposito, from Brescia’s police unit, told Rai Tre on Tuesday that the group “threatened Pope Francis, celebrated the recent attacks in Paris and threatened the ex-US ambassador in Kosovo.”

In reference to Pope Francis, investigators found online threats made by the group, including one saying “this will be the last Pope”.

The arrests followed raids in the Italian cities Brescia, Vicenza and Perugia as well as Kosovo.

Police said “the [alleged] terrorist team propagated the ideology of jihad through social networks”.

The gang’s “mastermind” is believed to have lived in Italy before being arrested in Kosovo. The other three were arrested in Italy, where they have been living for some time….
