Hostile Muslims seem to enjoy poking Americans in the eye, probably because they think they can. Washington has increased Muslim immigration to this country, which may incite even worse behavior among the those who see a friend in the White House. They never miss an opportunity to insult treasured American institutions, like free speech and freedom of religion, the latter which benefits them because Islam is treated as a faith rather than a totalitarian political system.
Now obnoxious Muslims are back, complaining about free speech that’s critical of their backward system. Just a week after many of the staff of Charlie Hebdo were slaughtered by jihadists in Paris, an Islam group rented a hall owned by the public schools in Garland, Texas, to “Stand with the Prophet” against America.
Interestingly, the Free Beacon reported that their journalist and others were prevented from entering the evening forum of Muslim speakers: ‘Free Beacon’ Banned From Stand with the Prophet Event. Some reporters were allowed to stay for only 20 minutes, then were made to leave. Free expression, Muslim style!
GARLAND, Texas — Pamela Geller told a crowd of nearly one thousand protestors that “we’re living in an age where evil is good, and good is evil.” Her remarks came during a free speech rally staged to protest the “Follow the Prophet” assembly underway in a Garland Independent School District convention center.
She cautioned the audience to be careful with the mainstream media covering the event and the protest. “This is theater,” Geller said, “and the media is the director. They’re coming here to film a narrative. They’re coming here to make you look bad.”
Geller encouraged the group to speak their mind but to do so in a way that brought credit to the movement. “Never give them what they’re looking for,” she explained. “They want you to say something wrong. They want you to have a bad sign. Because that becomes the front page.” Continue reading this article
The subject of the picture is a cutesy immigrant child gazing upon little paper hearts strung on a burned out mosque in Sweden. To my suspicious eye, the perfect composition and oddly folded hands of the girl suggest a posed photo rather than an image taken from life:
A little background is needed to understand how Sweden got to a place where mosques are being fire-bombed. In September 2013, the government of Sweden generously (or stupidly) offered to take in any Syrian refugees who could get there — potentially over a million persons. The reality of such a major demographic influx began to become recognized as costing a lot and difficult to organize. Housing and jobs for many thousands cannot be made to appear just by the fervent wishing of liberals.
So the mosque fires have occurred in an atmosphere of growing tension.
However, not everyone accepts the official story of white Swedes attacking diverse immigrants. An article in The Local (Sweden rallies after trio of mosque fire attacks) has comments and the first one suspects Muslims may have bombed themselves for the sympathy, an opinion that got a lot of favorable up-clicks:
May be they see the SD [Sweden Democrats, the anti-mass-immigration party] is rising so they set fire on their own Mosques to frame it?
Despite the fact that no arrests have been made and therefore no perps identified in the Sweden case, the Times stuck with the convenient story of white Europeans attacking diverse immigrants. That may be the case, but the possibility of faked hate crimes is just as likely.
ESKILSTUNA, Sweden — As Khalif Samantar knelt for afternoon prayers at the Eskilstuna Islamic Dawa Center on Christmas Day, he sensed a growing heat and a low, rushing sound coming from a nearby hallway. He focused his mind on the ritual, only to realize seconds later that someone was shouting, “The mosque is on fire!”
Mr. Samantar sprang through an open window and rushed through the snow in his stocking feet for help. Though about 70 people were inside the mosque at the time, no one was injured.
The fire, which gutted the Dawa center, was the worst of three suspected arson attacks on mosques in Sweden over the last 10 days. In the same period, two freighters bearing hundreds of asylum seekers were abandoned by their crews off the coast of Italy, adding to a surge of more than 200,000 migrants to Europe in 2014.
“We left our country as refugees. We were not looking for food or benefits, we were looking for somewhere to feel safe,” said Abdirahman Farah Warsame, the imam at the mosque where the fire occurred on Christmas Day. He is originally from Somalia. “Now that is gone. We have a feeling that society is turning against us.” Continue reading this article
One might think that experiencing some of the best that the west can offer would make hard-hit Indonesia friendlier toward the people who helped, but that has not been the case at all. Rather than appreciating western values of science, efficiency and charity, the world’s biggest Muslim country (population 205 million in 2010) has turned to Islam’s totalitarian sharia law.
Just a few years ago, Islamic apologists would point to Indonesia as a fine example of Muslims behaving moderately. Perhaps they did then, but now the virus of ultra-extremist sharia has been instituted as the law of the important Aceh province, and other areas of Indonesia are moving in that direction. Across the Muslim world, jihad is on the march, and that means less freedom for anyone in the vicinity and violence toward anyone deemed not Islamic enough. The result is physical punishment for drinking alcohol, suspected sex out of marriage and women wearing tight or western clothing. Women are also not allowed to straddle motorbikes (a common form of transport) but are made to sit sidesaddle — a less safe position.
Below, an Indonesian woman is caned in Aceh for a violation of sharia.
Even the politically correct Voice of America reported the difficulties of Indonesian sharia:
Incidentally, fundy Muslims should be careful when they wish for full-tilt sharia, judging by the failure of the Islamic State to provide basic needs. According to the Washington Post (Living conditions crumbling in Islamic State), water and electricity are available for no more than three or four hours a day and garbage goes uncollected in Raqqa Syria, with similar failures around the glorious mini-caliphate.
Naturally, it is unwise to admit persons as immigrants from such a barbaric culture to the west, as Europe has been learning. You don’t add rotten apples to the barrel to increase the diversity.
It is a little past noon on Friday, time for Anshari and his troops to spring into action.
Their first stop is outside the gates of Meulaboh’s central mosque, where fruit and vegetable hawkers display their wares. The megaphone blares that it’s time for midday prayers, and Anshari’s team, part of the sharia, or Islamic law, police, hovers over the street vendors to ensure that they shut down during the minutes of religious observation.
“You should cover that,” snaps one officer, pointing to a cart full of mangoes. The merchant quietly obeys.
Later in the afternoon, Anshari’s uniformed squad will fan out to coastal spots and other areas where unmarried or unrelated couples may be trying to steal a moment alone. And they’ll be on the lookout for women wearing tight clothing, or anyone drinking alcohol or gambling — all offenses under sharia that could result in public caning.
About 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 26, 2004, a massive tsunami welled up from the Indian Ocean and struck Aceh province, where Meulaboh is located. More than 230,000 people in Southeast Asia were killed. In this corner of Indonesia, one result has been a stricter adherence to Islamic law.
Some see it as partly a backlash against the influx of foreign aid workers, who helped build roads and hospitals, but also brought with them Western values. At the same time, some of Aceh’s Muslim leaders regarded the disaster itself as punishment for wayward living, and began calling for a greater focus on virtue and piety.
Aceh province is known as the “terrace of Mecca” because it’s thought to be where Islam first spread to Southeast Asia, carried from the northernmost point on the island of Sumatra. Continue reading this article
How many kicks in the head will it take for western nations to learn that Muslim immigration is worst public policy ever?
Today’s example is the terror attack on a Sydney cafe where a couple dozen people were taken hostage by an Iranian, Man Haron Monis, who was accepted as a refugee in Australia in 1996.
Below, a hostage delivers a message from the terrorist that he was attacking Australia in the name of the Islamic State (ISIS):
The guy has a rap sheet filled with violence including dozens of sexual assaults on women through his spiritual ministrations as a sheikh and arranging the murder of his ex-wife. Why was such a violent man allowed to walk the streets?
Below, Sheik Haron apparently likes media attention.
The spin coming out is that Monis is mentally disturbed, and he may well be from a western psychological viewpoint. But Islam encourages violence against infidels, and for that reason is attractive to the criminally minded.
Australians came out Monday in solidarity with the Muslim community following a siege at a Sydney cafe, as tens of thousands tweeted the hashtag #illridewithyou to counter concern about an anti-Islam backlash.
The hostage-taking at the Lindt chocolate cafe triggered a security lockdown in the heart of Australia’s biggest city, with the government and Muslim leaders condemning the attack and calling for unity.
Amid uncertainty about the hostage-taker’s motives and fears of reprisals after an Islamic flag was raised in the cafe, an Australian woman reportedly started the #illridewithyou hashtag to show solidarity with Muslims who might feel threatened on public transport.
The danger to the public would not exist if the government had not allowed thousands of Muslims to reside inside the gates.
Here’s a local report about the jihadist’s background:
But when Obama wants the citizens to lay down and passively accept his unconstitutional executive amnesty, suddenly the American people have a “good heart” toward invasive foreign lawbreakers. Funny how that works.
Actually, the statement was part of a threat to a future president not to rescind Obama’s temporary free stuff and work permits — the moochers will be miffed! It is indeed politically difficult to remove a major freebie.
President Obama insisted Tuesday that his successor won’t take the political risk that would come with reversing his recent executive action on immigration reform.
Speaking at a town-hall meeting in Nashville, the president said it’s “theoretically” possible that the next administration could undo the amnesty Mr. Obama has granted to more than 4 million illegal immigrants, but he assured a supportive crowd that such a step it is extremely unlikely.
“It’s true a future administration might try to reverse some of our policies. But I’ll be honest with you — the American people basically have a good heart and want to treat people fairly and every survey shows that if, in fact, somebody has come out and subjected themselves to a background check, registered, paid their taxes, the American people support allowing them to stay. So any future administration that tried to punish people for doing the right thing, I think, would not have the support of the American people,” Mr. Obama said. “It’s true, theoretically, a future administration could do something that I think would be very damaging. It’s not likely, politically, that they reverse everything we’ve done.”
Last month, the president unveiled long-awaited executive action on immigration reform. He granted de facto amnesty to more than 4 million illegal immigrants, freeing them from the threat of deportation and allowing them to legally compete for jobs.
The move sparked a major backlash on Capitol Hill and in states across the country; at least 18 states are suing the president over his steps on immigration.
Some in the West, like Canadian TV host Michael Coren, have voiced disapproval that Muslims residing in free nations do not protest the behavior of the active beheaders in their faith, particularly when Allah’s loyal acolytes routinely complain loudly about the smallest perceived slight from Europeans or Americans.
Following the recent beheading of French mountaineer Herve Gourdel (pictured), some France-residing Muslims apparently showed up with some #NotInOurName sentiments. The Associated Press interpreted the rallies as exhibiting “heartsick fury among Muslims in France.” Who knew?
PARIS — In tweets, in street gatherings and in open letters, moderate Muslims around the world are insisting that Islamic State extremists don’t speak for their religion. Many are also frustrated that anyone might think they do, and a backlash has already begun.
This week’s videotaped beheading of a French mountaineer by militants linked to the Islamic State group prompted heartsick fury among Muslims in France and elsewhere in Europe, torn between anger at the atrocities committed in the name of Islam and frustration that they have to defend themselves at all.
Herve Gourdel was the fifth Western hostage decapitated in recent weeks by Islamic extremists — this time, the militants said, as revenge for France’s decision to join airstrikes against the Islamic State group. [. . .]
If Europe-residing Muslim immigrants are truly “heartsick” about Islam being misrepresented, they are a little late to the parade. TheReligionOfPeace.com website keeps a running total of Allah-inspired deadly attacks since 9/11 — and counts more than 23,920 as of today.
In addition, Muslims are not required by Islam to tell the truth to infidels, so the statements of Muslims must be accorded proper skepticism. Taqiyya — deception — is a well discussed strategy in Islamic scriptures, particularly its use by Mohammad, considered the perfect man who should be emulated.
Also, Muslims complain about mythical “backlash” against their kind, which usually consists of a few unkind words at worst. There are no mobs of Europeans committing mass murder, as ISIS Muslims do in the Middle East.
The idea that Muslims are sad about infidels being slaughtered in the traditional style is also brought into question by the following somewhat sketchy refutation:
As Muslims demonstrated against the “barbarism” of the Islamic State (IS) group outside the main mosque in Paris on Friday, pressure on the Muslim community to denounce Islamist militancy has been described as Islamophobic “madness”.
Friday afternoon’s demonstration follows this week’s murder of French hiker Hervé Gourdel, kidnapped in Algeria by the militant group calling themselves Jund al-Khalifa, which claims links to the IS group.
Many Muslims in France reacted spontaneously to express their disgust at the brutal killing. Online, the Twitter hashtag #NotInMyName – started by British Muslims to denounce the actions of the IS group – was taken up in France (#PasEnMonNom).
But despite the widespread anguish in France’s large Muslim community – the country’s Muslim population is estimated at upwards of five million, many of them of Algerian descent – expectations in some quarters that they should collectively criticise the extremists have caused a backlash.

Remember, this is the “Religion of Peace” and if you don’t agree then you’re a filthy racist Islamophobe.
Here’s Robert Spencer explaining the Australian situation, that ISIS is there and intended to act. (Too bad he couldn’t mention how so many Muslims [half a million] got there, namely through the immigration door.)
Another aspect of Muslim hostility, as Spencer notes, were the protests — not against the brutal planned attacks — but against the police raids arresting the terrorists.
Over 200 people in western Sydney attended a protest about the pre-dawn counter-terrorism raids that occurred across the country.
Rally organisers took to Facebook to encourage people to join them at a rally at Lakemba station to oppose the treatment of the Muslim community in what have been touted as the largest ever counter-terrorism raids in Australian history. [. . .]
Below, Sydney Muslims protest against the police for breaking up a terror plot.
And not to forget Backlash… No Australian has burned down a mosque or lynched a Muslim, but unfounded fears of a backlash from citizens are propagandized by Islamics into a kind of intimidation.
DURING prayers at Lakemba Mosque, the tension has been palpable.
There, and in Auburn, in Bankstown, in Liverpool, and in Greenacre, the situation is the same; Sydney’s Muslims are anxious.
They’re shocked by the allegations levelled against one of their own. They’re bracing for a backlash against innocent families. And they’re worried wider Australia will convict all Muslims of guilt by association.
“There is a palpable tension that permeates the environment,” Muslim leader Dr Jamal Rifi said. [. . . ]
Is there a more self-absorbed tribe on earth than Muslims? Their co-religionists were planning to behead an innocent Australian to make a crude statement to advance jihad, but they are concerned only about how the disrupted terrorism will affect them. Muslims residing in Australia want all the benefits of a free society with none of the responsibility.
It’s unfortunate that spying is necessary in a free country, but when the government admits enemies in the name of immigration diversity then snooping is needed to keep the public safe.
And why not chill on counter-terrorism, New York voters may have thought during the election. After all, bin Laden was dead and al Qaeda was defeated, according to Obama. It would be safe to have a far-left peacenik mayor, right? What could possibly go wrong?
Jihadis must be amazed at their luck: Obama has opened up America’s southern border so even little kids can break in and Mayor De Blasio has substantially dismantled New York City’s crack counter-terrorism system.
Now Baghdadi has an enthusiastic army of headchoppers armed with American military equipment, plus a bank balance of a couple billion dollars with an oil field income of $2 million per day. He’s got motivation, resources and a target, making ISIS a serious threat to America in general and New York City in particular.
Now former member of the 9/11 Commission John Lehman says de Blasio is “taking his eye off the ball” at the worst time — which is a kind assessment because it assumes the mayor’s eye was once on the ball of protecting the city.
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey concurred that disbanding the existing effective counter-terrorism program is bad policy, noting “I think we’re all less safe.”
Both Lehman and Mukasey agreed that De Blasio’s subversion of the federal Real ID system (recommended by the 9/11 Commission) to a lower-scrutiny city ID program for illegal aliens was dangerous.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is coming under sharp criticism for making decisions that may have undermined the effectiveness of his police department’s counter-terrorism operations.
Thirteen years after the 9/11 attacks on Manhattan, prominent security experts say de Blasio has made fighting terrorism a lower priority in order to appease the communities that helped elect him.
“A classic case of taking your eye off the ball at the worst possible time is Mayor de Blasio in New York,” said John Lehman, a former member of the 9/11 Commission.
He said de Blasio is failing to take seriously enough the new threat posed to New York and other major American cities by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which has reportedly trained dozens of American jihadists.
“At the very time when the threat suddenly emerges in a whole new additional form focused on the U.S., he decides to end some of the most effective programs in the country in the NYPD counterterrorism unit,” Lehman said.
“He has reassigned people and vehicles and special equipment to non-counterterrorist activities,” he added.
The liberal Democratic mayor has come under fire for several controversial decisions since succeeding Michael Bloomberg, who created a massive counterterrorism unit during his three terms as mayor.
In April, de Blasio disbanded a special unit tasked with conducting surveillance of mosques and Muslim groups suspected of radical ties.
Michael Mukasey, who served as U.S. attorney general from 2007 to 2009, said the unit was instrumental in mapping out possible terrorist ties within Muslim communities.
“They weren’t simply conducting surveillance of mosques and Muslims. They were mapping communities, figuring out where someone from Lebanon or Yemen or any of the other hot spots would go if they wanted to come to this country and find refuge,” he said. Continue reading this article
The feds are particularly silent about the whereabouts of tens of thousands of illegal alien children it has redistributed all around the country, she has learned. The little lawbreakers have privacy rights, the bureaucrats argue.
Nobody cares about their individual identity, but taxpayers have a right to the facts about where the foreigners are being housed, educated and at what cost. Parents need to know whether they need to move their kids to private school if the public classrooms become too academically compromised by diversity.
Plus, there’s no guarantee that the dumped kids will be properly immunized against communicable disease by the time they appear in America’s classrooms. If the kids don’t get immediate first-class school services, then La Raza and the usual suspects will start complaining about anti-hispanic racism. Public health will be a lesser concern compared with jamming foreign kids into classrooms ASAP.
In the video below, amnesty hucksters claim that kiddies will be endangered by hateful racist Americans if shelter locations are revealed. In fact, citizen safety is far more imperiled by the so-called children, most of whom are teenaged (and older) males, some with gang tattoos.
WASHINGTON (WJLA) – Hundreds of demonstrators marched outside the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency on Thursday, demanding Congressional action on immigration reform. Many were arrested.
This comes as some states continue to struggle with what to do with the influx of unaccompanied children coming across the border.
The government has abruptly shut down operations at Fort Sill in Oklahoma and two other military bases that sheltered more than 7,700 minors the government refers to as “unaccompanied alien children.”
Thousands have been transferred to 150 shelters around the country, mostly group homes run by nonprofits. But try to find out exactly where and the government won’t answer—not the public or reporters, not even members of Congress. Continue reading this article
Muslims residing in the United States and in general are more distrusted as time goes by, because the case is rather substantial that Allah’s acolytes are not suitable residents for Western nations. As Dutch politician Geert Wilders has said, “Islam is the biggest threat to freedom today.”
(Reuters) – How Americans view Arabs and Muslims has gotten worse in recent years, with negative feelings strongest among Republicans and senior citizens, according to a poll released on Tuesday.
Only 27 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of Muslims, down from 35 percent in 2010, according to the Zogby poll, commissioned by the non-profit Arab American Institute. Favorable attitudes toward Arabs dropped to 32 percent from 43 percent in 2010.
The poll also found that 42 percent of respondents believe an American Muslim’s religion would influence his or her decision making in an important government job. The same percentage believe it is justified for law enforcement to profile Arab Americans or American Muslims.
“For me, the biggest concern in the poll is not just that people don’t like us, but what not liking us translates to,” said Institute president Jim Zogby, who is of Lebanese descent. He said attitudes towards profiling and Arabs and Muslims in government posts “affect our ability to function as communities here.” Continue reading this article
On Saturday, quite a few friends of American sovereignty showed up in ultra-blue Boston (!) for a rally to save the country from the alien influx. What a pleasant surprise.
Apparently the protest was organized by Jeff Kuhner, a local radio guy (and legal immigrant from Canada). His page on WRKO-AM radio invited listeners to a “Stop the Invasion Rally.” where participants could “Join Jeff Kuhner for a major rally to protest Governor Deval Patrick’s plan to house illegal aliens from Central America in Massachusetts.”
Here’s a clip of Kuhner:
A local news report thought the participants were angry. Well, good. We are.
An anti-illegal immigration rally on Beacon Hill outside the State House on Saturday, July 26 was teeming with protesters.
While Bree Sison of CBS Boston estimated that the gathering drew hundreds of people, Jeff Kuhner, the host of WRKO’s The Kuhner Report, who organized the rally, put the number closer to 10,000 people.
People carrying signs that said “Deport illegals,” and “Americans before illegals” stood just outside the State House from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Kuhner told Boston.com that he himself is a legal immigrant.
Kuhner came to the United States in the 1990s on a work visa as he worked towards a Ph. D. Still a Canadian citizen, he was issued a green card in 2006. Kuhner said he is currently in the process of becoming a naturalized citizen.
“I’ve never seen any kind of a backlash like this before on any issue ever. People in this state are livid. They feel betrayed by the political elite,” Kuhner said of Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision for Massachusetts to offer shelter to unaccompanied minors.
This week, a state official said it remained “unclear” how many unaccompanied minors crossing the nation’s southern border illegally would be coming to Massachusetts and how many could stay in the state longer. The state has offered to house up to 1,000 children at one of two secure facilities for up to four months.
Kuhner told Boston.com that he thought Saturday’s rally in Boston may well become a national story. “We made the Drudge Report.”
“These are not children. When you say child, the implication is 4, 5, 6 [years old]. They’re teenagers – many of them are gangbangers … If you’re 15, you’re not a child. A child is 12 and under.”
On Thursday, America’s Senator Jeff Sessions took the Senate floor for reflect widely on the recent demands from billionaire elites (Sheldon Adelson, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates) for more immigrant workers while this week Microsoft announced its layoff of 18,000 employees over coming months.
The six-minute video posted on the Senator Sessions Youtube channel didn’t include the whole analysis, which can be found on an office press release, posted below, where I’ve added some links. It’s long, but informative and well researched.
WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, delivered the following remarks on the Senate floor yesterday on the announced Microsoft layoffs and the displacement of American workers by the H-1B guest worker visa. A text of Sessions’ remarks follows:
“Madam President, three of our greatest `masters of the universe’—as I like to refer to them—have joined in an op-ed in the New York Times just last week to share their wisdom from on high and to tell us in Congress how to do our business and to conduct immigration reform they think should be pleasing to them. I am sure other super billionaires would be glad to join with these three super billionaires and could agree on legislation that would be acceptable to them.
Sheldon Adelson, Las Vegas casino magnate and Republican supporter; Warren Buffett, the master investor; and Bill Gates, the master founder of Microsoft computer systems, all super billionaires, apparently aren’t happy. They don’t have much respect for Congress and, by indirection, the people who elect people to Congress, it appears from the tone of their article—you know, American people, that great unwashed group; nativists, narrow-minded patriots, possessors of middle-class values. They just don’t understand as we know, we great executives and entrepreneurs.
So they declare we need to import more foreign workers in computer science, technology, and engineering, because the country is ‘badly in need of their services.’ They say we are badly in need of importing large numbers of STEM graduates. That is something we have all heard and many of us have perhaps assumed is an accurate thing.
These three individuals, all generous men, have contributed to a lot of causes, and I am teasing them a little bit. They didn’t mind sticking it to Congress, so I just tease them and push back a little bit.
They particularly praised the Senate for its elimination of any limits on the number of work visas that could be awarded to immigrants who have a degree in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and have a job offer. Continue reading this article
