Why We Are Losing to Political Islam

We need to face some facts. We are losing our fight against political Islam not because Islam is so strong. No, we are losing because we act, talk and plan like losers.

Imams in North America calling for the murder of Jews

“Imams who advocate mass murder are only the tip of the iceberg of the hatred coming out of segments of Muslim society in the U.S.”

The same thing goes for Canada, while in Europe, Islamic anti-Semitism is on a steep rise since European nations opened their borders to multitudes of unvetted Muslim migrants.

The incendiary words of these imams are the kind of racism and hatred that is tolerated in the West. Even to call it out is deemed “Islamophobic.”

Ramadan Elsabagh

“North American Imams calling to murder Jews,” by Manfred Gerstenfeld, Israel National News, December 28, 2018:

Muslim immigration into North America has brought with it several religious preachers who call for the murder of Jews. This happens sometimes in mosques where these words are occasionally even cheered by the hating faithful. This type of incitement is also frequently found on social media.

The same extreme hatemongering by Muslim preachers in Western Europe has been previously exposed by this writer. The incitement by Muslims against Jews in the Western world has increased as a result of the nonselective immigration policy of these countries. Hate imams living in democracies calling for the murder of Jews is a reality which is not looked at systematically despite the fact that it should be subjected to extreme scrutiny.

A few examples of North American imams calling for the murder of Jews will illustrate this. In 2017, Ramadan Elsabagh head of the Islamic Services Foundation Quran Institute in Garland Texas, posted a recorded prayer to his Facebook page caling to “destroy the Zionists and their allies, and those who assist them and those who allowed them into the abodes of the Muslims. . . Oh Allah save [Al Aqsa] from the hands of the accursed violators. . . . Oh Allah destroy them.” Elsabagh is also a featured Quran reader on many internet sites.

When President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December 2017, Imam Raed Saleh Al-Rousan of Houston, Texas preached that “Muslims should fight the Jews.” He spoke in Arabic. The Washington-based MEMRI Institute uploaded an English translation of his inciting words to their website. Al-Rousan then apologized saying that he is opposed to all forms of terrorism.

Around the same time, Imam Abdullah Khadra of Raleigh, North Carolina mentioned a Hadith – a traditional saying of Mohammed – about killing Jews.

In Jersey City. New Jersey, Imam Aymen El Kasaby called the Jews “apes and pigs.” He promoted their annihilation and was cheered on by people attending his sermon. He prayed to Allah: “Count them one by one, and kill them down to the very last one, do not leave a single one on the face of the earth.” The worshippers responded “Amen.”

The Islamic Center of Jersey City suspended El Kasaby for four months without pay. Yet, the fact that his employers allow this extreme hate monger to continue to preach shows that the problem surpasses a few extreme individuals. These expressions of hatred usually go beyond even the extremes of right wing antisemitism.

At the Davis Islamic Center in Northern California, Imam Ammar Shahin preached in his sermon that the Jews were contaminating Muslim shrines with their filth. He said: “Oh Allah, count them one by one and annihilate them down to the very last one.” Afterwards, the Imam apologized to the people he had offended.

Canada is not spared either. In 2004, South African-born Sheik Younus Kathrada from Vancouver referred to Jews as “the brothers of the monkeys and the swine” in sermons posted on the Internet. He said that the Prophet tells: “Oh Muslim, Oh slave of Allah.., behind me is a Jew. Then come and kill him.” He added that Islamic scripture predicted an apocalyptic battle with the Jews. Kathrada said, “Unfortunately we hear too many people saying we must build bridges with them. No. They understand one language. It is the language of the sword, and it is the only language they understand.”…..

Ohio: Muslim who attacked man while screaming “I want to kill all the Jews” convicted of hate crime

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).

Izmir Koch

“Ohio Man Convicted of Hate Crime in Attack Outside Cincinnati Restaurant,” Department of Justice, December 17, 2018 (thanks to Creeping Sharia):

Izmir Koch, 33, of Huber Heights, Ohio, was convicted in U.S. District Court today for assaulting a man because he believed the man was Jewish in violation of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, and of lying to the FBI about his role in the religiously motivated assault.

Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Benjamin C. Glassman, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, and Herb Stapleton, Acting Special Agent in Charge, FBI Cincinnati Division, announced the verdict, which was reached today by U.S. District Judge Susan J. Dlott after a bench trial that occurred between Nov. 13 to 15.

According to court documents and testimony, the assault occurred on Feb. 4, 2017, outside a Cincinnati restaurant, when Koch yelled out asking if anyone outside the restaurant was Jewish. The victim responded that he was Jewish and Koch then ran to the victim and punched him in the head. When the victim fell to the ground, Koch and others continued hitting and kicking him, breaking a bone in his face and bruising his ribs. A half-dozen of Koch’s friends joined in the assault. Before and during the assault, the defendant was heard shouting, “I want to kill all of the Jews” and “I want to stab the Jews.” The victim was not in fact Jewish.

After the incident occurred, Koch made a voluntary statement to the FBI, accompanied by his attorney. Koch falsely told the FBI he was not involved in the fight and he had not said anything disparaging about Jews….

United Methodist Church under fire for anti-Semitism — and also enables jihad terror

The political goal of the “Christ at the Checkpoint Conference” in Oklahoma was to “flip American Christian support for Israel to the Palestinians.”

 In the wake of the synagogue shooting last week in Pittsburgh, activists from several mainline Protestant churches came under fire for promoting a culture of anti-Semitism in their churches, especially the United Methodist Church.

The worst offenders are usually activists affiliated with the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) and the United Church of Christ (UCC). But this year, the activists and officials from the United Methodist Church took on a leading role by hosting the controversial “Christ at the Checkpoint Conference” in Oklahoma.

Anti-semitism in the churches is longstanding, and while most of these churches are quick to claim that they’re apolitical, they are, in fact, very political. They condemn Israel and embrace the jihadist Palestinian agenda, claiming that the Palestinians are an oppressed group. They apparently know nothing of history and nothing of the jihadist agenda to obliterate Israel, as is articulated in the PLO, Hamas and Fatah charters. Or they pretend not to know in the face of charges of anti-Semitism.

The Christ at the Checkpoint Conference in Oklahoma is an offshoot of Christ at the Checkpoint Conference in Bethlehem. Some details of the latter’s cringeworthy record:

 In late 2010, Israeli tour guide Kay Wilson and her visiting Christian friend, Kristine Luken, were attacked by Palestinian terrorists outside Jerusalem. Luken was killed and Wilson suffered severe injuries. Wilson approached one of the CATC speakers about speaking at the 2012 convocation, but was told that her story was “not what the Lord wants,” a phrase that is sadly abused by some Christian leaders to exercise control — akin to a kind of spiritual or psychological extortion — over the follower. Wilson then expressed dismay about “how any Israeli…. Messianic believer, could justify participating in a conference that has chosen to associate itself with theologians advocating Replacement Theology and Palestinian officials with clear ties to recognized terrorist organizations.” She further stated, “For any self-respecting person, and especially for Israelis such as myself, the endorsement of terror by association, at a Christian conference, is obscene.”

Obscene it is. Such churches not only embrace anti-Semitism, but also empower jihad terror. Recently, the Palestinian Archbishop Atallah Hanna called evangelical Christians “enemies of the Christian values” for supporting Israel, and claimed that they “do not belong to Christianity at all.”

“United Methodist Church under fire for anti-Semitism,” JNS News, November 1, 2018:

The political goal of the “Christ at the Checkpoint Conference” in Oklahoma was to flip American Christian support for Israel to the Palestinians.

In the wake of the synagogue shooting last week in Pittsburgh, activists from several mainline Protestant churches came under fire for promoting a culture of anti-Semitism in their churches, especially the United Methodist Church.

The worst offenders are usually activists affiliated with the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) and the United Church of Christ (UCC). But this year, the activists and officials from the United Methodist Church took on a leading role by hosting the controversial “Christ at the Checkpoint Conference” in Oklahoma.

The political goal of the conference was to flip American Christian support for Israel to the Palestinians. The conference soon took on a more sinister tone.

At one point, a speaker put up a slide of U.S. President Donald Trump surrounded by three of his advisers. The speaker asked the audience what was wrong with the picture.

Audience members answered that the problem was that they were Jews, apparently angry that the American president had Jewish advisors involved in the effort to achieve a peace deal.

Dexter Van Zile, a Christian scholar for CAMERA, reported about the conference. He told JNS: “At the time, when the audience was complaining about Jews in the Trump administration, I was disgusted at their flagrant anti-Semitism. But now, after hearing that the Pittsburgh gunman said the American government was ‘infested’ with Jews, I feel more than shaken by how it echoes what I heard at the Methodist-organized conference.”

“The notions of Jewish cruelty, corruption and infestation—those were all themes at the conference,” said Van Zile. “It’s now, literally, lethal rhetoric.”

The United Methodist Church’s struggle with anti-Semitism goes back several years…

On the anniversary of the Holocaust’s forgotten pogrom, let’s recall who the ‘Palestinians’ have always been

The jihad against Israel is nothing new, and it didn’t start with the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 — as I show in detail in my forthcoming book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS (click here to preorder). This riveting account by Tiffany Gabbay, whose family survived the Farhud in Baghdad in 1941, demonstrates that.

Why do incidents such as the Farhud happen? Because 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).

“On the anniversary of the Holocaust’s forgotten pogrom, let’s recall who the Palestinians have always been,” by Tiffany Gabbay, Rebel Media, May 18, 2018:

There are few chapters in history that have ever revealed the face of evil or wrought more human suffering and degradation than the Holocaust. What many don’t realize, however, is that the poisonous barbs of Hitler’s final solution were not confined solely to Europe, but stretched far beyond to the Middle East where Arabs, even more practiced in their anti-Semitism, were eager to commit a genocide of their own. Leading the charge was Palestinian-icon, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.

During the Shoah, notorious “Palestinian” Jew-hater, Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, sought to realize his long-held goal of purging the Middle East of its Jewish communities. Believing that what the Nazis were orchestrating in Europe could also be successfully implemented in the Arab world, the mufti began his courtship of Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler and other prominent Nazis. Steadfast, the mufti traveled to Germany requesting the practical and material support required to “solve the problem of the Jewish elements in Palestine and other Arab countries.”

After all, he reasoned, “the Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies.”

While Hitler never publicly declared his support for al-Husseini, he did fulfill his promise to furnish the Arab nationalist with “practical aid to the Arabs involved in the same struggle” and help facilitate the “destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere.”

One of the most significant gifts the Nazis bestowed on al-Husseini were the tools needed to conduct successful propaganda campaigns — ones far more sophisticated than the Islamic world were privy to before. Their pilot program began in Iraq, where a pro-Nazi government had already been successfully established.

By the late 1930s, Nazi-Arab momentum had gained considerable steam and the German embassy in Iraq was headed by Nazi diplomat Fritz Grobba. Under his stewardship the dissemination of anti-Semitic propaganda material throughout the Middle East increased markedly. By purchasing Arab newspapers and translating Nazi content into Arabic, soon Iraqis were feasting not only on their own brand of Quranic anti-Semitism, but also a Western equivalent that validated their already-held, twisted beliefs.

In fact, one such newspaper, al-Alam al-Arabi (The Arab World), published the first Arabic-language translation of Mein Kampf. Likewise, Grobba ordered German Nazi broadcasts to be translated into Arabic and aired across Iraqi radio. The German embassy also supported the formation of al-Fatwa, the Muslim counterpart of Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth).

To illustrate how effective Nazi-Arab collaboration was, consider that al-Fatwa’s rallying cry invoked Hitler’s perceived grandeur. Historian Edwin Black documented that a delegation of al-Fatwa members even attended a Nazi rally in Nuremberg in 1938. Upon their return they’d often be heard chanting in Arabic, “long live Hitler, the killer of insects and Jews.”

Needless to say this was fertile ground for anti-Semitic atrocities to take place and soon the Arab street became more dangerous than ever for Jews who’d called Iraq home, in some cases, for millennia. With the environment primed, the mufti’s next step was to organize a full-fledged pogrom.

The Farhud

On June 1, 1941, Jewish families in Baghdad were home preparing meals in anticipation of Shavuot, a holiday that marks the gifting of the Torah (Bible) by God to the Jewish people on Mt. Sinai. By all rights it is a festive occasion and although members of the Jewish community were aware local Arabs were conspiring against them, they were assured by local leaders that they would remain safe.

Nothing could have been further from the truth.

As the holiday commenced, Jewish homes and businesses were marked with a bright red hamsa, or “hand of God,” to single them out for attack. And, with the mufti’s plan in place, a violent mob of Iraqi Muslims took to the streets armed with swords, axes, knives, guns, torches and pipes. They killed every Jewish man, woman, and child they could find.

No one was spared, neither young nor old. Jewish women were raped in the streets while their infants were murdered before their eyes. Jewish men were hacked to death with axes in broad daylight. Even bearing in mind the long history of Islamic Jew-hatred, the massacre that took place on Shavuot, 1941, was bloodier and more gruesome than anything that had occurred, to that point, in modern-day Baghdad.

My father was there. He recalled the savagery in complete and utter detail for the duration of his life. And although he was only a child no older than nine, the situation demanded he become a man. As the oldest son, my father felt an onus to stand by his father and protect his family….

‘Allahu Akbar’ scrawled on Jewish home, 10-year-old Jewish girl beaten by classmates

It’s very likely that those classmates were also adherents of the Religion of Peace. Jews have not had this kind of trouble in France since World War II, until this period of massive Muslim immigration.

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 under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“French girl hospitalized following classmates’ antisemitic attack,” JTA, October 7, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A 10-year-old girl was assaulted by her classmates and the home of a family was daubed with racist graffiti in two Paris-area incidents deemed antisemitic.

The alleged assault was reported to France’s ministry of education by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, the watchdog group wrote in a statement on its website Tuesday.  Separately, the same group reported that unidentified individuals on Wednesday wrote antisemitic slogans on the side of a home belonging to Jewish family in the eastern suburb of Noisy le Grand.

The mother of the girl who allegedly was assaulted, identified by BNVCA only as Ness, complained to police recently that a group of classmates of her daughter in the public school which she attends in Paris’ 18th district beat her on multiple occasions, often occurring day after day, only because she is Jewish. After one beating, Ness was brought to hospital with a visible contusion to her stomach and ribcage, the report said, requiring 10 days of recovery.

The child will be transferred to a different school, BNVCA wrote.

According to Francis Kalifat, the president of the CRIF federation of Jewish communities of France, antisemitic harassment has made public schools unsafe for Jews, leading to a sharp drop in the number of Jews attending them. In the past, a third of Jewish parents enrolled their children to public schools but now “no one does it,” he told JTA last year.

In the incident involving antisemitic graffiti, BNVCA said it was part of a campaign of intimidation against the family that owns the building targeted.

This time, they wrote “screw the shitty Jews, death to Jews, long live Palestine.” In recent years, the same family found in their mailbox an envelope featuring the words “Allah hu akbar” – Arabic for Allah is the greatest — with 9-milimeter bullets inside. They later received another envelope with a bullet for an AK-47 assault rifle and the words: “The next one is for you.”

The family is afraid to live in their home, wrote BNVCA, which complained to police about the incidents committed against the family and called on authorities to apprehend the culprits….

I take it all back. Israel caves to fear.

Israel caved to what Dan Pipes calls it, fear of another intifada given threats from King Abdullah, the neo Sultan tyrant President Erdogan and the infamous holocaust denier PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

Not only the metal detectors, were taken down, but also those alleged high tech surveillance cameras as well, leaving, what, the metal barriers?

And MK and former Shin Bet director Avi Dichter was hoping to “sterilize the Temple Mount” from being a weapons storage preventing jihad by Islamic extremists?

As my mythic Brooklyn cousin Vinny might opine FERGEDABOUDIT!

Bibi has even promised to compensate for the death of the two Jordanian assailants shot dead by an Israeli security guard wounded in a screwdriver stabbing at the Amman legation. Now we understand that the security guard is being interrogated by Israel police.

Is the only coercive action left against PA President Abbas’ incitement of violence now left is for the US Senate to pass the Taylor Force Act? That might at least deny US funds to the Fatah/PLO for payment of the $3,000 a month to the 19 year old Hamas killer of three members of the Salomon family at Halamish last week at an erev shabbat dinner.

Once again, Bibi who trumpets toughness but comes up short because of what, US pressure? There he goes thanking Special envoy Jason Greenblatt and tyro diplomat Jared Kushner for intervening and coming to his rescue.

The long and the short of it was that two heroic and loyal Israeli Druze police officers died at the Lions’ gate shot dead on July 14th with Carlos submachine guns stowed in the armory of the Al Aqsa Mosque in the so-called Noble Sanctuary by staff of the Jordanian appointed Waqf. Further that the Salomon family of Halamish are left bereft and grieving for the loss of a zayde a son and daughter in law, parents of a five year son and his siblings, now orphaned.

This is not justice, it is cowardice and insanity in the face of monstrous Islamic evil.

The outcome is that the Temple Mount is not secure and under the control of the sovereign Jewish state, waiting unprotected for the next attack by a mujihadeen intent on killing his Jew to please his god allah.

ISIS tells Muslims to steal from infidels and send them 20%

Where did they get the idea for this? You guessed it:

“And know that anything you obtain of war booty – then indeed, for Allah is one fifth of it and for the Messenger and for near relatives and the orphans, the needy, and the traveler, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our Servant on the day of criterion – the day when the two armies met. And Allah, over all things, is competent.” (Qur’an 8:41)

The Islamic State believes that the world’s Muslims are at war with the world’s non-Muslims, and are thus entitled to the spoils of war, of which a fifth belongs to them as the caliphate, the sole legitimate government for Muslims.

And of course the Infidels’ wealth and property belongs to the Muslims by right, for the Qur’an specofoes that Muslims must fight them until the “pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29). So the Infidels paying for the upkeep of the Muslims is the natural order of things.

“ISIS Tells Muslims to Go Steal, Send the Caliphate 20 Percent of the Loot,” by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media, April 5, 2017:

The newest issue of ISIS’ English-language Rumiyah magazine released today encourages old-fashioned theft and looting to help fund the Islamic State, with target suggestions including an armored truck full of cash or an electronics superstore.

The article declares that the wealth of kafir, or disbelievers, is “halal,” so Muslims should “take it” — as long as they remit one-fifth to the caliphate.

The article cites a hadith to show “the clear permissibility of spilling their blood and taking their wealth until they accept Islam… all kuffar who are not under the contract of dhimmah are enemies from whom ghanimah [booty] is taken.”

The writer argues that aside from istijarah, or a safe passage covenant, and the jizyah tax, “the only relationship the Muslim has to the kuffar is that of the sword, i.e. physically waging jihad against them. And any attack on the kuffar, including that which is financial, is jihad. In this regard, any wealth taken from the kuffar through deception or defeat is considered ghanimah.”
Sponsored

“Whether the financial damage is on an individual kafir or the cause of perpetual loss to a business, the Muslim in Dar al-Kufr [land of disbelievers] has the opportunity to follow this blessed sunnah, striking terror by stalking the kuffar and causing them economic harm. There should be no misunderstanding about the excellence of this deed, as taking this wealth is in accordance with the command of Allah.”

Of this stolen wealth, ISIS directs, 20 percent “should be set aside and given to the Khalifah or to an official representative of the Khalifah for those who are able.”

But “whoever kills a kafir – for which he has proof of his killing him” gets to keep all the loot. Or, specifically, “whatever the kafir possesses at the time and place he is killed.”

“This includes his clothing, jewelry, all kinds of weapons, gold, silver, currencies, as well as the vehicle he was using, and so forth,” ISIS adds.

And there’s another loophole: “The one who kills a kafir on a dark street or in an alleyway, while no one else is around, does not need evidence of his kill in order to take the salab [personal belongings].”

“As for the wealth of a business or any wealth which was taken through deception, instead of killing an individual, then that is not salab. Rather, this is ghanimah that must be divided accordingly,” the ISIS article directs.

The terror group insisted the tactic “is to invade [disbelievers’] lands and damage them with the loss of life and wealth.”

“So it is not enough to defend Muslim land and incite oneself to do so, but one must hate the kuffar and long for causing them harm in their own lands. And this must be done with the pure intention of seeking to make the word of Allah the highest, even if the benefits of ghanimah are a result of one’s blessed operation for Allah’s cause.”

The last sentence defines “property” that can be included in these booty-collecting operations to include people: “May Allah, the Most Generous, make the kuffar’s wealth, weapons, women, and children ghanimah for those who strive for His cause.”…
