Dutch Islamic scholar: “No Western country has successfully integrated Muslims”

“Dutch author and sociologist Ruud Koopmans said this week that Muslims are more difficult to integrate into Western society than other migrant groups because of a literal interpretation of the Quran prevalent among Muslims.”

Koopmans called this a “threat to world peace.” Most Muslims agree that “Muslims should return to the roots of Islam,” while a whopping “75 percent think there is only one interpretation of the Qur’an possible to which every Muslim should stick.” That interpretation is normative Islam, and the one that resulted in over 11 million Muslims being murdered for not being Muslim enough since 1948, along with innumerable non-Muslims. It’s also the same interpretation that for a millennium and more has divided the world into two camps: the House of War (Infidel countries) and the House of Islam (Islamic countries), with the mandate that the latter must conquer the former.

Jihad Watch and other organizations that support the principles of free society in the West have been warning about these truths for a long time, while Leftists and Islamic supremacists work to obscure them and continue to erode the foundations of societies that are built on human rights and freedom. It is key to understanding the global jihad to accept the fact that the jihad imperative is rooted in Islamic doctrine. Understanding this will enable the West to stand firmly for freedom and establish sensible policies, including an end to the open-door immigration that advances the hijrah (jihad by immigration).

“Islamic Scholar: No Western Country Has Successfully Integrated Muslims,” by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, March 8, 2019:

Dutch author and sociologist Ruud Koopmans said this week that Muslims are more difficult to integrate into Western society than other migrant groups because of a literal interpretation of the Quran prevalent among Muslims.

Ruud Koopmans, professor at the Berlin Social Science Center and author of several books including Contested Citizenship: Immigration and Cultural Diversity in Europetold the Danish newspaper Berlingske that whereas most groups of migrants integrate relatively quickly, especially from one generation to the next, Islam stands out as an exception.

“Although it’s not completely absent in Muslims, the change is much slower,” he said, noting that a literal interpretation of the Quran prevents them from integrating into Western countries.

In an earlier published study titled “Fundamentalism and out-group hostility,” Koopmans compared Muslim radicalism with Christian radicalism to better understand why Islam stands out for its isolationism.

“Almost 60 percent agree that Muslims should return to the roots of Islam,” he wrote, while “75 percent think there is only one interpretation of the Qur’an possible to which every Muslim should stick.”

Koopmans, who has been studying Islam for over twenty years, also found that “65 percent say that religious rules are more important to them than the laws of the country in which they live.”

Regarding Christian citizens on the other hand, Koopmans found that fewer than 4 percent “can be characterized as consistent fundamentalists.”

“I conclude that the Islamic world is lagging behind rest of the world when it comes to democracy, human rights, and political and economic development,” Koopmans told Berlingske in his interview this week.

“The main problem is how many Muslims and, globally, how many Muslim countries interpret Islam. Namely, in a way that basically claims that the Qur’an and the Sunna must be taken literally, and that the way the Prophet lived in the 7th century must be the yardstick for how Muslims should live in the 21st century,” he said.

“Such a brand of Islam is, firstly, a threat to world peace. Secondly, it prevents integration,” Koopmans concluded.

Although it is politically taboo to draw distinctions between ethnic groups when it comes to immigration, some scholars, including Pope Benedict XVI, have urged the West not to assume that all cultures share its basic suppositions about the human person and society.

Prior to his election as pope, Joseph Ratzinger wrote that “the interplay of society, politics, and religion has a completely different structure in Islam” than it does in the West.

Unfortunately, he added, much of today’s discussion in the West regarding Islam “presupposes that all religions have basically the same structure, that they all fit into a democratic system with its regulations and the possibilities provided by these regulations.”

“The Koran is a total religious law….

Rep. Ilhan Omar: Obama was able to ‘get away with murder’ because he had ‘the pretty face and the smile’

Democrats, the new leader of your party has little patience with the old leaders of your party. They have got to go. Henceforth only fully Sharia-compliant leaders who would never engage in the “droning of countries around the world” in order to stymie jihad terror activity will be allowed. That Omar objects even to Obama’s weak and half-hearted opposition to jihad terror is telling. From now on, apparently, the Democrats will be indefatigably committed to absolute surrender.

“The Democrats’ Dilemma,” by Tim Alberta, Politico, March 8, 2019:

MINNEAPOLIS—They have gathered in defiance of the freezing temperatures on a late February’s night, scores of them twirling Somali flags in one hand and American flags in the other, crowding around the arrivals terminal and waiting to welcome one of their own. The vast Somali community in the Twin Cities is like one sprawling extended family, explains Ali Aden, a 39-year-old engineer who came to the U.S. two decades ago, as we survey the scene. When a prominent member of the family arrives, it’s customary to greet them this way.

“Is it Congresswoman Omar they’re waiting for?” I ask, referencing the freshman Democrat whose district we’re standing in.

“Ilhan?” he smiles broadly. “No, no. If it were Ilhan, the whole city would be here.”…

As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the “hope and change” offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar says. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”…

Democrats retreat from anti-Semitism resolution after backlash defending anti-Semitic Rep. Omar

Ilhan Omar, not Nancy Pelosi, is the future of the Democrat Party. The longstanding antisemitism of the Left has now been validated and accepted as mainstream. Expect much, much more of it to come, from Omar and others.

“Democrats retreat from anti-Semitism resolution after backlash,” Associated Press, March 7, 2019:

House Democrats on Wednesday postponed indefinitely a vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism after a contentious meeting in which some new members confronted leaders over their push to rebuke Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

In the party’s weekly closed meeting, Democrats protested the way Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leaders tried to rush out a resolution this week responding to Omar’s latest remark about Israel. Omar last week suggested the Jewish state’s supporters are pushing lawmakers to pledge “allegiance” to a foreign country.

That forced Democratic leaders to respond, but their draft of the resolution condemning anti-Semitism angered Omar’s fellow freshmen and their liberal supporters. Pelosi had already said the measure would be broadened to decry anti-Muslim bias. But that didn’t quiet the ranks, and the party’s first major dissension broke out in an uncomfortable confrontation, according to three officials familiar with the episode, who, like others, spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private matters.

The upheaval prompted Democrats, who regularly celebrate their diversity, to push off a decision about the resolution.

“It is shameful that House Democrats won’t take a stronger stand against Anti-Semitism in their conference,” President Donald Trump tweeted. “Anti-Semitism has fueled atrocities throughout history and it’s inconceivable they will not act to condemn it!”

“My comments were about the process we are using when concerns arise,” Hayes said in a statement. “As a member of Congress I should not get important information from cable news.”

Two people with knowledge of the situation said Hayes was engaged in conversation with a colleague when Pelosi asked her a question. The congresswoman did not respond because she did not hear the speaker address her, these people say. Most lawmakers had left the room at the time.

Then Pelosi said, “If you’re not going to listen to me, I’m done talking,” according to a person in the room.

A senior Democratic aide said Pelosi had earlier acknowledged the issues and said the resolution was not final. One person in the room quoted the speaker as saying the leaders had tried to increase communication so that members stay united and have “a clearer understanding of what our purpose is as a caucus, how we proceed.”

Some Democrats hugged Omar, one of two Muslim women in Congress, during the meeting, according to other officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity. She’s also received powerful boosts from fellow Democratic freshmen Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan….

There was also dissension among the Democrats on whether a resolution condemning anti-Semitism was even necessary, given that the House voted on a similar measure already.

“I’m not sure we need to continue to do this every single time,” said Rep. Pramila Jayapal, the co-chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus….

The Brotherhood’s FULL-ON Infiltration & Penetration Into Congress Via Reps Ilhan Omar & Rashida Tlaib: What’s To Be Done?

By: Adina Kutnicki Dave Gaubatz

By the time (Islamist) Reps Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib burst onto the scene, in effect, storming the halls of Congress, former President Obama paved the way for the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia’s entry into the highest recesses of power. In fact, the proofs are beyond manifest – many of which are housed within Adina Kutnicki – A Zionist & Conservative Blog.

Alas, as always, a picture is worth (more than) a thousand words.

Image result for mohammed elibrary homeland security

Not only that, when the words, the actual ! admission, come straight from the so-called horse’s mouth, it behooves all Americans to buck up and pay rapt attention. As such, “Homeland Security’s Mohammed Elibary: Caliphate Inevitable” tweet on June 13, 2013 – as analyzed within the CLARION Project – should have put the truth of the administration’s plan in plain view – or not.

In this regard, proper due diligence requires evidentiary trails from as many patriotic megaphones as possible. Most especially, those whose expertise lies within Islamic Jihad must lead the way. Thus, let the following exhibits set the stage and underline the overarching charge-sheet(s). Indictment(s).

  • As laid out (at the onset of this site) in “Barack Hussein Obama Set To Formally Embrace Morsi, Egypt’s Brotherhood Pick: How Did This Happen?”, his footprints shed light on the whys and wherefores to President Mubarak’s toppling – with the full-on assistance of a compliant U.S. administration. HINT: Mubarak refused to play ball with the Brotherhood. Even more so, in his first official trip to Cairo, June 4, 2009, former President Obama signaled to the Islamic world/the ummah the administration’s strategic plans for re-shaping the Middle East – with absolute recognition of the knock-on effects on the U.S. ala the empowerment of the Brotherhood within the highest echelons. For further edification, the video linked below is more than instructive. However, it does require one’s “listening ears” to be finely attuned to his jive-talk which is honed for western consumption, as opposed to the winks and nods meant for Muslim audiences.

  • Added indictments can be found hereherehere, and among a long laundry list of others. In tandem, two global interviews – one of which was a tag-team approach between these authors – are duly supportive. They can be accessed here and here.

Clear as a bell. Again, straight out of the horse’s mouth.

As promised in the opening paragraph – now that the (provable) groundwork has been paved – it is time to link and hook into what is going down in Congress, that is, vis-à-vis the unprecedented infiltration and penetration of the Brotherhood Mafia into its recesses! Incontestably, it is an urgent imperative. Beyond.

To be sure, over the years and creep-by-creep, the Brotherhood has been boring into Congress under the terror wings of CAIR; its N. American propaganda arm. Resultant, the reporting within has reflected the same.

CAIR-Ibrahim-Hooper-Fooling-establishment

Consider the following bullet points as highlighted “open sesames” re the Brotherhood’s initial boring into Congress. They are shored up hereherehere, and here – courtesy of access given by the Obama administration in particular and CAIR in specific.

Without further ado, enter….(Islamist) Reps Ilan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and their tie-ins to CAIR and related Brotherhood Mafia front groups!

  • Hot on the heels of the mid-terms, what are the chances that the following Intel Report (for a privately held Homeland Security entity, which is Israel and U.S. aligned) ties straight into the topic at hand? Rhetorical. So much so, the aforementioned Congressional reps are front and center: “UPDATE TO: Trends/Adaptations In Jihadi Tactics: The Rashida Talib Nexus.

As excerpted…..

To said end, the morning of January 10, 2019, I presented an updated Intel policy paper at the very same secured facility in Tel Aviv which housed last year’s conference. Among several areas of high concern, a segment of the presentation zeroed in on what is really……going down in “The Triangle“; AKA the Wadi Ara, AKA the Nahal Iron. An overview is below, including the nexus to US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib! …..

Of course, this is not the forum to get into specific details and associated plots. Rather, it is the place to enlighten the public as to what is at stake, sans all the Allah-wash from western leaders, including Israel’s. With this in mind, it is imperative to reveal a highlighted security concern from the conference. Incontestably, it links up the inextricable terror nexus between Israel and the US – vice versa.

In brief, many Americans have expressed concern about the newly elected Rashida Tlaib, an ethnic “Palestinian”, who represents Michigan in Congress. Well, they don’t know the half of it.

Effectively, I have been given permission to reveal this tidbit: when two of the assets associated with the conference (counter-terrorism and counter-Intel freelancers) were in Michigan (AKA Michiganstan) on another assignment, by accident, they “stumbled” upon a bombshell. It revolves around a clear connection between particular “Palestinian-Americans” (Jihadis-In-Suits) from clans in East Jerusalem, who happen to collaborate with clans in the Wadi Ara, who just happen to have access to Rashida Tlaib and her associates! This linkage is via what they termed the “Ramallah Connection” ala the AFRP, The American Federation of Ramallah, Palestine. Oh, what a tangled web of terror. Btw, her parental and close extended family live in a small, but highly active, Islamic-laced village, Beit Ur al-Foqa. It lies smack in Israel’s Judean hills….

As sister Islamists, both are totally hooked into CAIR/Hamas – to reiterate, the Brotherhood Mafia’s propaganda arm in N. America.

Oh, and pay special heed to the 5:02 mark at “Here Comes the (Jihadi) Bride: Access Denied!”, in so far that it is another nail in the coffin of CAIR and their inextricable link with the two Muslimas in Congress.

And more of the same…..

  • More specifically, several non-captured media sites are raising the highest decibel alarms, as to the incalculable threat, that is, if they (alongside their socialist sister, AKA “AOC”, a main glue who holds their red-green alliancetogether) are not removed from office, let alone taken off key committees!
  • Aside from the “take-no-prisoners” Breitbart News (once again, laying out what’s what, relative to the dangers at bay), along comes the Jerusalem Post, and they too are sounding a high-pitched alarm. It is not for nothing.

Still yet, it is via the blessed work of Laurie Cardoza-Moore, under the wings of  PROCLAIMING JUSTICE TO THE NATIONS (PJTN.org), that millions of patriots (be they Christians, Jews, or others) are hearing the clarion call.

As thousands of signatures flood in responding to PJTN’s petition to demand Ilhan Omar’s resignation from Congress, more disturbing and incriminating evidence continues to mount against her.

Because of your overwhelming response, we are gaining momentum and attention from national and international media in this ambitious campaign to remove her from office.

What Rep. Omar espouses is not garden-variety anti-Semitism, but full-on terrorism. Make no mistake: a sitting representative in the United States Congress is fundraising for entities who give money to terrorists. And not a little, but millions each year!

Here are the facts:

Omar recently spoke at a benefit dinner for Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA) in Tampa, a local chapter of Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW). IRW has a history of funding terror organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

IRUSA is today the largest Islamic charity in the West, with branches in more than 20 countries. It has received at least $80 million of funding from Western governments and international bodies, including the United Nations and the European Union. In 2014, the United Arab Emirates designated IRW as a terrorist organization because of its links to the Muslim Brotherhood.

NEXT – On March 23, Omar will be a guest speaker at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraising event in Los Angeles.

Since 2013, PJTN has been involved in exposing CAIR’s instructional materialsbeing used to indoctrinate our children with propaganda in U.S. schools.

PJTN stands committed to fight the vile effects of anti-Semitism wherever they are found and that is why we are demanding Omar’s resignation – effective immediately! Not only does she pose a threat to our Jewish and Christian Zionist communities, she is equally a threat to the national security of the U.S. and our trusted ally, Israel….continue here…..

Of course, everything which is charged against Omar is a mirror image towards Tlaib.

Most significantly, it is no wonder that those of us who understand what’s what and what’s at stake also pay heed to the Islamists within who spill the beans – even as their co-religionists hide within the underbelly of stealth jihad, thus, adhering to Islamic-sanctioned deceit ala taqiyya, kitman, tawriya, and muruna.

Trenchantly, Chicago’s “native son”, the highly educated Sheikh Omar Baloch, attests to what the end game is for Mohammedans – be they inside America, the west in toto, or within Islamic-ruled lands, respectively, Dar al-Harb or Dar al-Islam.

Most recently, this exchange tells the tale:

While Muslim clerics in the United States typically insist they submit to the U.S. Constitution, an Illinois cleric chastised Islamic relief organizations for not stating that an Islamic caliphate is the ultimate objective for Muslims.

Omar Baloch said many Islamic organizations are afraid of losing funding if they are too vocal about the establishment of a caliphate.

“We all have a higher goal … that is bigger than us, and that is the establishment of the caliphate,” he said in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel Jan. 29 titled “Constructive Criticism of Islamic Relief Organizations,” according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Jihad Watch Director Robert Spencer commented that in Sunni Islamic theology, the caliphate is “the sole legitimate government to which Muslims owe loyalty.”

“It is ruled by a caliph, the military, political, and spiritual successor of Muhammad, and implements Islamic law, which is considered the non-negotiable law of Allah,” he wrote.

“How loyal do you think Sheikh Omar Baloch is to the American system of non-establishment of a religion and a republican governmental system? That’s right, not loyal at all. But to question him about this would be ‘Islamophobic.’”

Baloch said Islamic relief organizations do not place enough emphasis on the establishment of an Islamic caliphate as the long-term solution to humanitarian problems.

“If you’re not calling out the forces of injustice and you’re not telling Muslims the long-term solution, the common dream of the Muslims, the common legacy of the Muslims, of uniting the Muslims, in using the relief organization fund platforms to do that, [you’re deficient],” he said.

He was born in Chicago and is the scholar in residence at the Al-Furqaan Foundation in the Chicago suburb of Bolingbrook, Illinois, according to a Facebook page. He studied at Georgetown University, at Al-Azhar University in Egypt and at Jamia Thul Ahlul Hadith in Pakistan.

Baloch said Islamic relief organizations “have a very good platform to also explain the need for a caliphate.”

“I really wish that my brothers and sisters that work in relief organizations would take this task seriously,” he said.

Again and again, another pic is worth (more than) a thousand words – as Islam’s (female) foxes in the Congressional hen-house are feted by CAIR: “An exuberant crowd celebrated the victories of the first female Muslim members of Congress, Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), at a Jan. 10 reception hosted by the national office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) at Arlington, VA’s Hyatt Crystal City Hotel. Fellow Muslim Rep. André Carson (D-IN), in office since 2008, was also in attendance.”

Guardian runs piece entitled “Why it’s OK for young Muslims to be radical”

For years, Western analysts at all points on the political spectrum have used the qualifier “radical” when speaking about jihadis (“radical Islamists”) and their motivating ideology (“radical Islam” or “radical extremism”). The point was to preserve the fiction that Islam is a religion of peace that doesn’t teach violence against unbelievers, and that the “radicals” were twisting and misusing its teachings.

And now, in Britain’s far-Left Guardian, Ali Nobil Ahmad wants non-Muslims to accept the idea of “radical Muslims” as a good thing. He says he isn’t referring to jihad terrorists, but if his words are heeded, the effect will be greater complacency regarding jihadis, and even more hesitancy among British authorities to do anything about the problem they present. Britain will become even more prostrate before the advancing jihad than it already is.

Did the Guardian publish Nazi propaganda in 1942?

Ali Nobil Ahmad

“Why it’s OK for young Muslims to be radical,” by Ali Nobil Ahmad, Guardian, February 28, 2019:

The legal and moral conundrums posed by the return (or not) of British jihadis following the collapse of the Islamic State “caliphate” has triggered renewed anxiety about the place of Muslim youth in western society. The home secretary, Sajid Javid’s populist bid to strip Shamima Begum of citizenship has heightened the pitch of an emotive debate. But little has changed in Britain’s approach to counter-terrorism, soon to undergo independent review following years of heavy criticism.

The Prevent strategy places entire communities under suspicion without necessarily being effective. European equivalents have fared similarly. A €2.5m French deradicalisation boot camp in the Loire valley asked participants to sing the national anthem, eat non-halal food and learn “Republican values” without rehabilitating a single individual.

When policymakers talk about preventing “radicalisation”, they are missing the point: there’s nothing inherently wrong with being radical. The term can simply mean rejection of the status quo. The French and American revolutions, universal suffrage and the end of colonialism all involved political subversion. Politics has long been ideological and international. (Think George Orwell and the Spanish civil war).

Yet still we talk about Muslim youth in the hackneyed language of the early 2000s, in which “radical” ideas must be neutralised through social engineering. A good (Muslim) citizenry, in this logic, is politically docile, disengaged from world affairs and discouraged from combining religion with political activism.

Muslims of my generation, growing up in the 70s and 80s, were inspired by radical ideas derived from secular humanism. Confronted with racial and social injustice in Britain, many of us found solace and solidarity in third worldism and socialist internationalism – without subscribing to indiscriminate violence.

Muslims in the UK who have grown up after 2001 have done so in an era of nihilistic surrender to the capitalist world order and the political status quo. Unsurprisingly, some have veered towards one or the other current extremes of political Islam.

Of course, the reasons hundreds were seduced by the death cult of Isis cannot be explained solely by a lack of alternatives. Recruitment was driven as much by crass adventurism and bloodlust. The public is justified in feeling revulsion towards returning marauders, whose crimes should be prosecuted with the full force of British and international law.

But the choices of a few cannot be allowed to bar generations of young Muslims from trying to change the world. Rather than view them with fear, a supposedly open society like the UK should ask how their dynamic potential can be allowed to flourish….

Muslim rape gang gave 14-year-old drink and raped her repeatedly — “I was nothing but a toy to play with”

Why does this keep happening? One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

“‘I was nothing but a toy to play with’: Victim of Bradford sex abuse gang who plied her with drink and raped her when she was 14 speaks out as they are jailed for more than 130 years,” by Terri-Ann Williams and Joe Middleton, Mailonline, February 27, 2019:

The victim of a Bradford sex abuse gang who plied her with drink and raped her when she was 14-years-old has spoken out- as the depraved group are jailed for more than 130 years.

The group of nine men were jailed this afternoon at Bradford Crown Court with the Judge Durham Hall saying the girls were ‘sexually abused following grooming’ and ‘violence’.

A harrowing victim impact statement from one of the victims was read out in court saying she was ‘nothing but a toy to play with’ by the sordid gang.

She said: ‘I have the most irrational thoughts because of anxiety.

‘I have fear going to the shops, and very rarely go to restaurants or out on an evening with friends.

‘I was manipulated, used, nothing but a toy to play with. I understand this because new relationships are so much different.

‘I have had years of counselling to understand it wasn’t love it was grooming.

‘When Basharat was arrested I could not leave the house for three months.

‘I had to leave my job because of the dread of him or someone he knew walking through the door.

‘It pains me to see my dad in panic at the thought of Basharat turning up at our house.’

During the trial prosecutor Kama Mell QC said that the teenagers had been ‘ripe and vulnerable to manipulation’ and were subsequently subjected to a range of sexual abuse at the hands of the men in order ‘to satisfy their sexual desires’.

Kama Mell QC read a harrowing victim impact statement this afternoon.

She said: ‘I have the most irrational thoughts because of anxiety.

VIDEO: Muslim threatens Christian preacher, police arrest preacher for ‘Islamophobia’

Britain is, of course, finished.

“‘They Arrested Him for Islamophobia’: Muslim Targets Street Preacher, Police Arrest the Christian,” by Dale Hurd, CBN News, March 1, 2019:

LONDON — Britain was once the home of world missions. But today, it’s increasingly hostile to the gospel. In the latest episode, London police are under fire for arresting an elderly Nigerian man for preaching on the streets of London.

His name is Preacher Olu and he was arrested last Saturday, accused of breaching the peace and Islamophobia. Phone video of his arrest went worldwide on social media.

“You can arrest me if you want to. You can arrest me if you want to,” the preacher says after police tell him to stop talking about Jesus.

CBN News got an exclusive interview with the woman who shot the video, Ambrosine Shitrit.

“A man with a hoodie was trying to humiliate, to be aggressive towards this Christian street preacher,” Ambrosine says. “I could see that he was a Muslim man because he was talking about. ‘No. Allah is the right way’.”

But London police didn’t arrest the Muslim man for threatening a Christian preacher — instead, they arrested Preacher Olu.

Britain is officially a Christian nation, but if you’re street preaching and someone complains, police are quick to move in.

“You better make your life right with the Lord Jesus Christ,” Olu was preaching as the police came up to him.

“What are you doing here?” an officer asks.

“I am preaching,” Olu responds.

“You’re preaching. I am going to require you to go away,” he says.

“You can never,” Olu replies.

“Okay then I will arrest you for breach of peace,” the officer says.

“What breach of peace?” Olu asks.

“What you’re doing. You’re causing problems, you’re disturbing people’s day and you’re breaching their peace,” the officer says.

But Ambrosine says Olu was not disturbing anyone except the Muslim man.

“Nobody was offended by the preaching, nobody. Nobody was offended and nobody came to see what was happening,” she recalls.

Andrea Williams of the Christian Legal Centre is advising Preacher Olu of his legal rights.

“This was completely an overreach of their authority. There was no basis upon which to arrest the pastor although they did know clearly because it’s caught on the camera. There was no proper investigation. They arrested him for Islamophobia which isn’t an offense and certainly there was no evidence of the fact that he was Islamophobic or racist,” Williams explains.

As Olu declared, “Jesus is the only way,” the officer badgered him saying, “No one wants to listen to that.”…

The Christian preacher was reportedly driven out of the area and in the words of the police, “de-arrested” and dumped in an area without money to get home.

Williams said she’s not sure if Preacher Olu will bring charges against the police. She says she sees cases like this on almost a weekly basis.

VIDEO: An Ad For Coca-Cola, and For Islam by Hugh Fitzgerald

Above is the Coca-Cola ad for Ramadan 2018. It’s a remarkable performance, and I’ve tried to give it the attention it deserves. It lasts for 2:14.

We open to a scene of an obnubilated sky (0:00-0:09); it’s early morning in the outskirts of a city. At 0:10, a pretty young woman, veiled and covered from head to foot, appears. The sun is beating down, but nonetheless, she must stay covered. She is seen running to catch a bus (0:11-0-15), but just as she is about to reach the door, the bus pulls away at 0:16. A look of anguish passes over her. (0:20-0:21). Now she must walk into town, quite a distance, and we see her walking under that pitiless sun, clearly suffering. For her faith. (0:21-0:24) She is now in town, we see from the a crowd of pedestrians around her. As she walks, she has brief encounters with various Infidels, all of them disturbing. At 0:27 she passes people eating — a hard thing for a Ramadan observer to bear. Couldn’t these people eat indoors? may be her fleeting thought. But she will remain strong. A girl who is coming from the the other direction gives her a nasty look as she passes (0:31) Headshot of determined Muslim girl: she will go on! (0:32). Then a young man brushes by her, knocking — it seems deliberately — against her shoulder (0:33-0:34). She keeps walking, persevering in her righteousness. At 0:36, a middle-aged besuited man walks past her and gives her a hostile look. Yet again! She is then seen walking down some steps, where two girls sitting on those steps. As soon as she passes them, one of the girls pulls her hood over her head (0:40), cruelly mocking the hijabbed Muslim girl, and she and the other girl laugh at their unfunny joke. (0:41-0:42).The Muslimah pays no attention.

At this point (0:42) a pretty ponytailed Western jogger appears, in headband and running suit. She glances briefly, it seems, over at the Muslim girl (whom we do not see), and then goes up to the Coca-Cola stand, all bright and shining, where she orders one bottle of Coke from a bearded young man at 0:44. Then we see the Muslim girl, still with that look of anguish on her face (apparently Ramadan is quite an ordeal, to judge by the girl’s expression of agony throughout until she can, at the end, break her fast with a Coke). At 0:45, the jogger looks back at the Muslim girl, a concerned expression on her face. At 0:46, a close-up of the Muslimah’s anguished noble face. At 0:47-0:48 the jogger, clasping her bottle of Coke, looks over at the Muslim girl and, concerned, orders a second bottle of Coke for her. At 0:50, the Muslim girl, still with that anguished expression, moves toward the parapet. At 0:52, a close-up shows her eyes half-closed in anguish. At 0:53, the jogger looks over, while she is being handed a second bottle of Coke, at the Muslim girl. At 0:55, the jogger takes the second bottle; she is now smiling. At 0:56, she starts to walk, a smile on her face, holding the two bottles of Coke, over to the Muslim girl. The Muslim girl’s face is shown, still reflecting psychic pain. (0:57-0:58) She moves to the parapet, wheres she unwraps from what looks like a napkin two dates (1:00-1:01), to be eaten later, at the end of the fast. We see her troubled silhouette at 1:02-1:04. The jogger comes over to the parapet. (1:05) At 1:06, we see  two bottles of Coke. At 1:07, the Muslim girl looks over at the two bottles of Coke, and thinks. Can she? Should she?

At 1:10, each girl takes hold of one of the bottles. At 1:11, the Muslim girl is still thinking. At 1:13, the Muslim girl smiles gratefully, looks over at the jogger, but she cannot — the smile suggests — accept. At 1:14-1:15  is a shot of the hands of both girls, each holding a bottle of Coke. At 1:16, the jogger looks over at the Muslim girl and gives a quizzical look — why aren’t you drinking? At 1:17, both girls are seen in silhouette, both thinking. At 1:18, the jogger puts her bottle to her lips. She holds it there, but without drinking, until at 1:24 she puts the bottle back down. She seems to now have had her epiphany; it wouldn’t be right to drink in front of an obviously parched Muslim. And that’s a lesson for all of us. At 1:26 we have a shot of the two Coca-Cola bottles. At 1:28, both girls lean over the parapet, looking out over the city. At 1:29, the Muslim looks over at the jogger. From 1:30-1:34, the Muslim girl slowly develops a shy smile. At 1:35, a shot of both girls, looking over the parapet again. From 1:35 to 1:41, we see the real stars of this video, the two bottles of Coke. At 1:41-1:42, the jogger is seen in sihouette. At 1:50, the sky suddenly darkens — at last, sundown has come. It only takes a second, apparently, and the Muslim girl now raises the bottle. They both can enjoy their Cokes. A cooling wind is suddenly blowing, too. Clearly all nature is refreshed. The Muslim girl puts the bottle to her lips and keeps drinking until 1:57, when she puts the bottle down. At 1:59, there’s a shot from the rear, as the jogger faces her new friend. A friendship has been formed, as only friendships can, when bottles of cold Coca-Cola are being consumed.

Shyly, the Muslim girl hands her new friend, who offered her hope not hate, one of the two dates she had been saving to eat when she finally could break her fast. At 2:02-2:03, they both eat their dates. At 2:07, we see the two girls, now fast friends, in silhouette, and above them, a bright circle appears in the sky; it’s the Coca-Cola logo, promising heavenly bliss. A thin white Muslim crescent envelops two thirds of it. At 2:06 the Muslim is smiling, happy. At 2:12, four lamps in the Muslim mosque style drop down from the sky. Look closely at them, because the light in each one is in the discernible shape of a Coca-Cola bottle. The girls continue to lean over the parapet, drinking their cokes, eating their dates. It’s a wonderful world. On the screen these words appear: “What Unites Us Is Bigger Than What Divides Us.” And then: “Taste the Feeling.”

There are several themes here. One is of the brave, long-suffering Muslim girl, who has managed to withstand all temptations until after sunset, when at long last she drinks her Coke and eats her date. A second is of the sheer malignity she must endure from Infidels, from the young woman who gives her a nasty look, to the young man who knocks into her, to the older man who passes her with an expression of clear disapproval, to the two young girls who cruelly mock her hijab. It is not until she finds her friend, the jogger, that her calvary ends.

What should a good Infidel do during Ramadan? Do what the jogger did. Don’t drink in front of those who are fasting. Show sympathy. Offer them something, but make sure you do so only after sundown. For What Unites Us — in this case, Coca-Cola, that wonder-working elixir — will overwhelm What Divides Us (those dirty looks, that deliberate shove, that completely uncalled-for mocking of the hijab). Muslims are always ready for friendship, like this noble girl suffering for her faith. It’s we who need lessons in decency and true tolerance.

The clever mendacity of this advertisement deserves to be examined. It’s having its effect. So far it has been seen by more than 3 million visitors at YouTube. So take a look; see, in slow motion, just how they convey their message, both for Coca-Cola and for Islam. You may even conclude from this ad, as I have, that Nothing Goes Better With Coke.

Claire Goforth of the “Daily Dot” Tries to Shut Down Opposition to Jihad Terror

My latest in the Geller Report:

Claire Goforth

Fascist “journalist” Claire Goforth gave her Daily Dot story an ominous title: “The Hatebook: Inside Facebook’s thriving subculture of racism.” What racism did she mean? The usual assortment of white supremacist losers, plus opponents of jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others.

Goforth relied heavily on the Leftist smear machine the Southern Poverty Law Center for her spurious analysis, although she did make a grudging admission: “The SPLC does have critics, among them many individuals affiliated with hate groups on this list, who question its methodology, politics, and motives. Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes has filed a defamation suit against the SPLC for labeling his pro-Trump club for ‘Western chauvinists’ a hate group. Nevertheless, generally speaking, the nearly 50-year-old nonprofit is considered among the foremost authorities on hate in America.”

Yeah, sure it is. And, Goforth claims, it’s even worse:

But it’s not just that these hate groups have an oversized presence. It’s how few clicks away truly horrendous beliefs are….

Hate groups have long been using the internet to find like-minded individuals and coerce others into adopting their views. Social media sites put them all in the same place, making it far easier to find and indoctrinate a person like Fields Jr., who murdered a woman at the Unite the Right rally and posted approvingly of Nazism on his Facebook page; or Dylann Roof, who spent countless hours on a racist website before murdering Black churchgoers in South Carolina; or Anders Breivik, the Norwegian mass murderer who cited Robert Spencer dozens of times in his manifesto.

Spencer, who was banned from the United Kingdom in 2013 for extremism, is the founder of the SPLC designated hate group Jihad Watch; its Facebook page has 84,000 Likes.

A testimony to the power of shadowbanning.

Visitors to the Jihad Watch blog are asked to “help spread the truth about jihad” by “exposing the role that Islamic jihad theology and ideology play in the modern global conflicts.” Stories on the prolific site are largely about Muslims committing crimes, recruiting for terrorist groups, people becoming criminal and violent after converting to Islam, and the like.

recent story claims, “Yet another convert to Islam gets the idea that his new religion commands him to commit treason and mass murder.”…

Goforth goes forth at length about how white supremacists and other baddies proliferate on Facebook, and must be silenced at all costs. She stuck Jihad Watch right in the middle of her lineup of evildoers, despite not being able to produce a single “white supremacist” or “racist” or “bigoted” or “hateful” quote from me or any other Jihad Watch writer. She brings up madman Anders Breivik in a particular defamatory fashion, calling him “the Norwegian mass murderer who cited Robert Spencer dozens of times in his manifesto,” thereby giving the impression that I was calling for mass murder or approved of Breivik. She doesn’t bother, of course, to point out that Breivik criticized me in his “manifesto” for not calling for violence, and that if violence is committed ostensibly because of some idea, it doesn’t discredit the idea itself, or else the socialism she likely endorses would be amply discredited on that basis alone.

Other than that, this is just more SPLC, with only cursory and incomplete notice of the fact that the SPLC has been thoroughly unmasked and discredited as a far-Left hate group bent on destroying all dissidents. Even the Washington Post has noticed. Goforth also employs a common tactic among Leftist “journalists”: present something that is perfectly true and innocuous as if it were egregious and hateful on its face, without explaining why. The convert story she cites from Jihad Watch is particularly grisly, with the convert explaining how he wants to kill and behead people, but Goforth apparently thinks its worse that I noticed, or that I know that the convert’s new holy book tells him: “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4).

There has been a two-decade effort on the Left to fool Americans and Europeans into thinking it “hateful” and “bigoted” to oppose jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others. Goforth is yet another Left-fascist bent on emulating the Nazi Brownshirts by defaming and crushing all those who dissent from the Leftist agenda. And she may well succeed in getting me banned from Facebook, which has made its Sharia-compliance abundantly clear. Facebook’s Vice President Joel Kaplan traveled to Pakistan in July 2017 to assure the Pakistani government that it would remove “anti-Islam” material, and they’ve been following through. But Goforth may one day regret her role in all this, when she discovers that her new friends she has enabled and aided so assiduously don’t respect and revere her as much as she does them.
