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.

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….

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.

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….

VIDEO: Palestinian Authority TV teaches children that Jews are ‘the most evil among creations’

No surprise here. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

No one will take much notice of this. Just imagine, however, the outcry if the roles were reversed.

“On Universal Children’s Day – look what the PA teaches its children!,” by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, November 20, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

On the occasion of Universal Children’s Day – here’s a taste of what the Palestinian Authority teaches Palestinian children.

For over two decades, Palestinian Media Watch has exposed the PA’s abuse of its own children with indoctrinating messages, teaching them that
– Jews are “the most evil among creations,” and Israel is “the enemy,” Jews are “Allah’s enemy” and “Zion is Satan with a tail”
– Terrorist murderers of Jews/Israelis are heroes, and terrorist “Martyrs” are role models
– Israel doesn’t have a right to exist

Today, November 20th, is known as Universal Children’s Day because it is the day the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child (1959) and the Convention of the Rights of the Child (1989).

The PA joined the UN’s Convention of the Rights of the Child in 2014….

The PA teaches children to see Jews as mean, impure creatures, who descend from “apes and pigs.” The following video shows a girl on a PA TV children’s program reciting a poem that presents Jews as “the most evil among creations”:

Girl: “Oh, you who murdered Allah’s pious prophets (i.e., Jews in Islamic tradition)
Oh, you who were brought up on spilling blood
Oh Sons of Zion, oh most evil among creations
Oh barbaric monkeys
Jerusalem opposes your throngs
Jerusalem vomits from within it your impurity
Because Jerusalem, you impure ones, is pious, immaculate
And Jerusalem, you who are filth, is clean and pure…”
PA TV host: “Bravo! Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine, we will never forget it.”

Official PA TV, May 29, 2015]…

Muslim migrant murders the German Jew who sponsored him

Searchlight Germany speculates that Mohammed Omran Albakr murdered his sponsor, Michael Riecher, because he discovered that Riecher was a Jew and had sponsored the renovation and restoration of a synagogue. That may be. In any case, this is yet another manifestation of migrant gratitude, and a warning sign of the dangers of importing large numbers of people whose holy book exhorts them to “kill them wherever you find them” (cf. Qur’an 2:191, 4:89, 9:5).

“Was Michael Riecher murdered by a Syrian asylum seeker because he belonged to the sponsoring association for the synagogue of the city of Horb, Germany?,” by Fred Alan Medforth, Searchlight Germany, November 13, 2018:

More and more new facts emerge in the murder case Michael Riecher. The investigating homicide commission is now apparently certain that the Syrian asylum seeker, who Riecher accommodated, also murdered him.The initially allegedly good relationship between the Syrian asylum seeker and Michael Riecher had suddenly become troubled.Was it perhaps because Michael Riecher was working for the sponsoring association for the renovation and restoration of the synagogue of the town of Horb ? And that the asylum seeker Mohammed Omran Albakr, accused of murder, became aware of it? The daily newspaper “Schwarzwälder-Bote” reported on Riecher’s commitment to the synagogue:

The citizens of Horb are now being asked to make donations: until April 2015, they can support the permanent exhibition in the Jewish Prayer Hall Museum. Every euro received is doubled by Michael Riecher.

So was it a murder committed by a Muslim with anti-Semitic intentions?

J Street and New Israel Fund boost jihadists while calling Trump anti-Semitic

Just a week-and-a-half before the massacre in Pittsburgh….Ben-Ami and the senior J Street leadership met with and expressed support for the leaders of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in Ramallah. Among those they met was the PA’s Minister of Civil Affairs, Hussein al-Sheikh.

As Stephen Flatow reported, before assuming his current position, al-Sheikh was a senior terror commander for the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade of Fatah, the PA’s ruling faction, headed by Mahmoud Abbas. In the framework of his duties, al-Sheikh paid for and provided arms to terrorists who used the money and the arms he provided to murder and maim Jews – including American Jews.

The Palestinian Authority et al seek to obliterate Israel. That anyone who claims to support Israel’s right to exist and oppose anti-Semitism could befriend such people is bizarre and revealing.

“Caroline Glick: J Street, NIF Accused Trump of Antisemitism While Boosting Antisemitic Terrorists,” by Caroline Glick, Breitbart, November 9, 2018:

It has been unsettling these past two weeks watching American Jewish leftist activists and organizations accuse President Donald Trump of responsibility for the antisemitic massacre of 11 elderly Jews at prayer at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 27.

The problem is not simply that the likes of J Street and the New Israel Fund fail to provide any proof of their allegations. And it is worse than the fact that in accusing the president of responsibility for the most lethal antisemitic attack on U.S. soil in history, they seek to politicize Judaism and transform it into a political position.

The truly unsettling aspect of some of these groups’ slanders of President Trump is that they themselves work to legitimize and advance the fortunes of antisemitic terrorists who murder Jews.

J Street, for instance has been a leading voice accusing Trump of responsibility for the massacre in Pittsburgh. Two days after the attack, J Street, which bills itself as “pro-Israel and pro-peace,” sent out an email about the event to its supporters. J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami opened the letter with a nice call to “come together in support of the victims, their loved ones, the congregation and the entire city of Pittsburgh,” and “to grieve and comfort one another, standing together in solidarity.”

But then he turned to the real business at hand. Ben-Ami insisted that the gunman, Robert Bowers, was “motivated in part” by “by anti-immigrant, antisemitic thought that has been spread not only by far-right groups, but by President Trump and some of his allies in the Republican party.”

Ben-Ami provided no evidence for his incendiary claim. And he ignored the fact that Bowers had expressed hatred for Trump specifically due to the President’s friendship and support for the Jewish people and Israel.

Having made his unsupported accusation, Ben-Ami proceeded to make a pitch for donations for J Street and for Democratic candidates supported by J Street.

Whereas there is no evidence that Trump has incited or empowered or otherwise engaged in actions that provided any support for Bowers, there is direct evidence that Ben-Ami and his organization have tolerated antisemitic mass murderers.

Just a week-and-a-half before the massacre in Pittsburgh, on October 17, Ben-Ami and the senior J Street leadership met with and expressed support for the leaders of the Palestinian Authority (PA) in Ramallah. Among those they met was the PA’s Minister of Civil Affairs, Hussein al-Sheikh.

As Stephen Flatow reported, before assuming his current position, al-Sheikh was a senior terror commander for the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade of Fatah, the PA’s ruling faction, headed by Mahmoud Abbas. In the framework of his duties, al-Sheikh paid for and provided arms to terrorists who used the money and the arms he provided to murder and maim Jews – including American Jews…..

After mass Muslim migration into France, anti-Semitism is up 69%

Edouard Philippe will never admit it, but here is why anti-Semitism in France is up 69 percent:

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

“Anti-Semitism in France up 69 percent,” Arutz Sheva, November 9, 2018:

Anti-Semitic acts in France rose by 69 percent in the first nine months of 2018, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on Friday, as Jews in Europe and around the world marked the 80th anniversary of the infamous “Kristallnacht” Nazi pogrom against Jews.

“Every aggression perpetrated against one of our citizens because they are Jewish echoes like the breaking of new crystal,” Philippe wrote on Facebook, referring to the start of the Nazi drive to wipe out Jews on November 9, 1938, also known as the Night of Broken Glass, according to AFP.

“Why recall, in 2018, such a painful memory? Because we are very far from being finished with anti-Semitism,” he said, calling the number of acts “relentless”.

After a record year in 2015, anti-Semitic acts fell by 58 percent in 2016 and went down a further seven percent last year, however there was an increase in violent acts targeting Jews….

The government plans to toughen rules on hate speech online next year, pressuring social media giants to do more to remove racist and anti-Semitic content….

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

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

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

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

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

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

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