The action pictured above is also happening in certain areas of the U.S.
The sheer size of America dilutes the impact overall, but in areas where it does take place, it is most definitely felt. The difference between Europe and most of America is that in the U.S., the “authorities” can attempt to cover up Islamic crimes for so long without irate push back from the citizenry.
Also, all over America, angry parents are challenging the teaching of Islam in the public schools that goes far beyond a historical context and plunges into outright religious indoctrination.
There are flabby brained local American officials who try desperately either out of ignorance, Dhimmitude, or treachery, to counter any so called Islamophobia. Many of the new migrants feel they have the right, indeed the obligation, to harass, beat up, and rape non Muslim women, children and even men. Demands by the public for the effective dealing with such Islamic crimes are met with derision and/or incalcitrance by many local governing bodies. They cite the approved narrative—accusations of racism, Islamophobia, the benefit of resulting economic growth, bla bla bla. In reality, they are undoubtedly receiving financial compensation for housing refugees, and many local employers benefit from cheap factory labor. Most Americans do not buy the obviously choreographed song and dance.
There are a plethora of blogs on this issue, but one of the most informative and targeted is Ann Corcoran’s Refugee Resettlement Watch, a treasure trove of information.
Prior to the influx of migrants resulting from the deftly engineered unrest in the Middle East, courtesy of the Muslim Brotherhood’s allies in certain Western Leaderships, there were Muslim communities in the West that were largely peaceful, taxpaying citizens, and barely noticeable to the non-Muslim population. The present migrants are of an entirely different breed. Many are radicalized, openly hostile, threatening, and refuse to assimilate into their host nations’ way of life. They bring chaos and blatantly declare their intention to eventually seek cultural conquest of the native populations. They are devouring their hosts piece by piece. Now many nations which accepted large numbers of these de facto invaders, are on the edge of the cliff. Some appear to have fallen over, courtesy of their ineffective and/or treacherous leadership.
The following post discusses Sweden, whose overtaxed law enforcement  has sounded the clarion and are openly acknowledging what has been the case all along, they need help. The police seem to get it, but the political leadership remains befuddled over the rise of Islamic extremism and chooses to remain at sea over the entire issue. Are they being threatened, blackmailed, or acting as NWO agents seeking the destruction of their own nation in the name of “World Peace” and “equality” for all.

Sweden Faces The Abyss; National Police Head Begs For Help
July 21, 2017 JoshuaPundit

Sweden’s National Police Commissioner, Dan Eliasson, recently spoke on national television and shocked his fellow Swedes by pleading for assistance. “Help us, help us!,” he said, while warning that Swedish police forces no longer can uphold the law and therefore must ask all “good powers” in the country to support them. Sweden faces the abyss of lawlessness and perhaps even a defacto civil war.
Commissioner Eliasson’s remarks reflect a shocking change for the worse in what used to be one of Europe’s most peaceful and law abiding countries.
A leaked report concluded that the number of “no-go zones”) in Sweden now totals 61, up from 55 in just one year’s time. This increase represents not only the total number, but also the geographical size of these areas. The Swedish authorities themselves refer to these areas as utenforskap, which roughly translates as ‘excluded areas.’ What it amounts to is that Muslim gangs are carving out territory for themselves where they’re the ones in control, not the Swedish authorities.
Police chief Lars Alversjø says that, “There is lawlessness in parts of Stockholm now.” He also said, “The legal system, which is a pillar in every democratic society, is collapsing in Sweden.”


One interesting sign of this is a shocking rise of female genital mutilation (FGM), unheard of in Sweden until recently. A new report partly written by SVT, the Swedish state media, reported that at least 150,000 women in Sweden have experienced genital mutilation. This procedure can involve partial or complete removal of the clitoris (i.e., clitoridectomy, clitorectomy or infibulation) plus excision of the labia as well. All too often, this operation is performed on pre teen girls as young as 4 or 5 years old by people who are not licensed medial practitioners in unsterile conditions, and without anesthesia. The actual numbers of women living in Sweden who have experienced FGM may be far higher.
In 2015, there was a report that something like “only” 38,000 women had experienced genital mutilation. The new report shows how this has skyrocketed, even though it is illegal in Sweden.
Sexual assaults have increased as well. New data from Sweden’s national bureau for statistics, BRÅ says that 3,430 rapes was reported the first six months of 2017, up 14 percent compared to the previous half-year. In all, 9,680 sexual crimes was committed from January to June. According to a BRÅ report from 2013,only 23 percent of sexual crimes in Sweden are reported, which means that we can extrapolate the real number of sexual crimes the last six months in Sweden amounts to around 42,000.

According to statistics,92 percent of all severe rapes (violent rapes) are committed by migrants and refugees. 100 percent of all attack rapes (where victim and attacker had no previous contact) are committed by that same group. The countries of origin for the refugees who committed those rapes, in order of the number of perpetrators are Afghanistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Syria, Gambia, Iran, Palestine, and Kosovo. Migrants and refugees from Afghanistan are79 times more likely to commit rape than Swedes.
Another indication of how badly things are going are the efforts by Sweden’s Left wing government to hide them. Being critical of Islam, the Swedish government’s refugee policies or how individual members of the government are handling this crisis can get you a hefty fine, or in some cases even a jail sentence…or both.
But things are progressing to the point where it is getting harder and harder to hide what’s going on.
Magnus Ranstorp is a researcher into terrorism and radicalization at the Swedish National Defense College. Writing about the current situation in Sweden, he noted, “In the worst areas, extremists have taken over. The whole sense of justice and peace are threatened by the fact that the police is breaking down and it’s only getting worse. Sweden is in a disastrous situation”
2011 recipient of Sweden’s Order of the Seraphim medal, Johan Patrik Engellau, a research expert regarding destabilized countries, has been working with organizations such as the UN and others that operate in crisis areas.His take oin this is interesting as well, especially in view of thinking of Sweden as a ‘crisis area.’
“I’m afraid it is the end for the well-organized, decent, and egalitarian Sweden we have known up to now. Personally, I would not be surprised if a form of civil war occurs. In some places, the civil war has probably already begun.”
READ Sweden’s Clueless Government Puzzled Over ‘Rise In Islamic Extremism’
“The government does not seem to understand that it has lost control. There is a point where you can no longer stop a situation’s development. I do not know if Sweden has reached this point when it comes to the consequences of immigration, but I fear we are drawing close. If we right here and now take and clear and powerful action – including stopping immigration and the political promotion of multiculturalism – we might with some difficulty be able to save Sweden.”
Difficulty might just be the word for it. Sweden’s entire regular military consists of under 10,000 men in all branches of service, army, air force and navy. They have perhaps as many as reserves. The Hemvärnet, a sort of part time home guard has perhaps another 14,000.
There ar4e questions, even from within Sweden as to whether that’s enough military to defend Sweden, especially from a homeland insurrection. Lt. Col. Johan Wiktorin (ret.), a leading Swedish security consultant has been quite vocal about saying that Sweden’s military is “simply too small to defend its territory.” And remember, while Col. Wiktorin is thinking in terms of Russia, what we’re talking about here is controlling an area of 170,000 square miles in a conflict that would include urban warfare, only using Sweden’s land forces. And it’s also worth remembering that this kind of conflict is one in which a number of Sweden’s ‘guests’ have experience in places like Syria and Iraq.
So Sweden faces the abyss, whether its government wants to acknowledge it or not. What happens next? We’ll see.

The following article is quite long but extremely informative with more links at the end. If one wants to know exactly where women stand under Sharia Law, this post will make it crystal clear and possibly give some information that the reader may not have already known.
Linda Sarsour and her ilk say that Sharia is misunderstood. If she and those like her truly believe that women are inferior, cannot make a move without their husbands’ or male relatives’ permission, deserve to be beaten and/or murdered for any immodest or immoral act, including being raped, then this mindset can be likened to “slave mentality“. When people have it driven into their psyches that they are inferior and deserve any treatment given to them, many surrender to this belief. Others do not and are often met with a gruesome end.
There are those who advocate for the end of political and legalistic Islam, but although there may be a few twinkles of light here and there, Muslim women largely remain in the abyss of de facto bondage. The likes of Sarsour would gladly pull their Western sisters into the pit into which they themselves are dwelling. Or, perhaps Sarsour does not really know what she is talking about and needs to bone up on all aspects of Sharia herself.

Towards the end of the article is information regarding what the West must recognize and accept in order to prevent being placed under the yoke of Islamism and Sharia.

A Woman Under Sharia: 8 Reasons Why Islamic Law Endangers Women
An essential, scholarly comparison of the rights of women under Sharia and in the West.
BY Immanuel Al-Manteeqi
Women in the West are viewed as being equal to men from both an ontological and juridical perspective. Now, that is not to say that women have never been unjustly discriminated against in the West. On the contrary, it is a sad truth of history that throughout the centuries women in Western societies were often discriminated against.

Indeed, suffrage was only granted to American women in 1920, with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, which states that “the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” But for at least the past few decades in the West, the predominant idea is that men and women are equal, and that women are entitled to the same basic rights that men enjoy.

Nowadays there are many principles that are enshrined in Western law to protect the rights of women. For example, in the West, the testimony of a woman is universally held—including in courts—to have the same value as the testimony of a man. Domestic violence against wives in the West is strictly prohibited, though unfortunately it is still practiced by some husbands. Furthermore, divorce is just as easy for a wife as it is for a husband to file for.

In addition, there is no discrimination against women when it comes to inheritance. Women are not disenfranchised of their fair share of inheritance just because they happen to be women. In the West women can also, for the most part, dress in any way that they desire without great social repercussions—and certainly not any legal repercussions.

The practice of polygamy is strictly prohibited in Western countries. The codification of monogamy into law goes at least as far back as Greco-Roman times. As a matter of fact, polygamy is seen in the West not only as an immoral practice but also as a practice that disenfranchises women. Moreover, Western countries take a strict stance on sexual exploitation and prohibit men from marrying or having sexual relations with pre-pubescent girls. And it goes without saying that Western countries strictly prohibit their soldiers from taking female sex slaves in times of war.

In sum, Western countries today treat women overall as equal to men, and there is no question that Western women enjoy individual freedoms. Western countries are the best places for women to live, where they can ascend to the highest seats of power in the land (think of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, UK Prime Minister Theresa May, and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton) through democratic processes, and where this is no theoretical obstacle to female leaders.

1. Under Sharia, Wives Can Be Beaten. 

Whereas under Western laws women and men are equal, under Sharia women are not equal to men, but are considered inferior. Women are the object of many disparaging remarks in the earliest Islamic source texts, which form the basis for Sharia. For example, according to Q 4:34, husbands are allowed to beat their wives if they “fear disobedience” (which implies that actual disobedience need not occur for the beating to be justified):

Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that God has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for God’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them. If they then obey you, look not for any way against them; God is All-high, All-great.

That wife-beating is permissible given (imagined or real) behavioral misconduct on the part of the wife is also found in Muḥammad’s so-called “Farewell Address” or “Last Sermon,” which has been preserved in Ibn Isḥāq’s Sīra, the oldest and most reliable biography of Muḥammad that we possess.[1]
 
2. Under Sharia, Females Enjoy Fewer Rights than Males. 
According to Q 2:282, the testimony of a woman is worth only half that of a man’s:

And bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men [available], then a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses – so that if one of the women errs, then the other can remind her.

According to Q 4:11 and Q 4:176, a woman may inherit only half as much as her male brother does. Furthermore, as Professor Samīr Khalīl Samīr, a native Arabic speaker with two doctorates and the former adviser to Pope Benedict XVI on Islam and the Middle East, explains, under Sharia “in a [religiously] mixed marriage [where the wife is non-Muslim], the wife legally loses the right to her husband’s inheritance if she does not convert to Islam.”[2]

3. Under Sharia, Marriage and Sexual Intercourse with Pre-Pubescent Girls is Permissible. 
According to Q 65:4, sexual relations with females who have not yet had their menstrual cycle (i.e., pre-pubescent girls) are permissible. The verse is found in the sixty-fifth chapter of al-Talāq (Divorce), which begins by stating that “when you divorce women, divorce them when they have reached (the end of) their waiting period (ʿidda); a waiting period or ʿidda is a certain amount of time that a Muslim man is supposed to wait before marrying a divorced woman, so as to make sure that she is not pregnant from her previous husband.”[3] It is in this context that we are to read Q 65:4, which states the following:

(As for) those of your women who have no hope of (further) menstruation: if you are in doubt, their waiting period is three months, and (also for) those who have not (yet) menstruated” [emphasis added].

Sayyid Qutb, the late prominent theoretician of the Muslim Brotherhood, explains in his renowned commentary on the Qur’ān (In the Shadow of the Qur’ān) that [Q 65:4] is referring to “women who are past the menopause and those who do not as yet have a menstrual cycle because they have not attained puberty or because of a malfunction in their system” [emphasis added].[4]

Thus, in the context of this Qur’ānic chapter on divorce, it seems that this verse is stating that Muslim men (or husbands) are to wait three months before divorcing pre-pubescent girls (for the reason of making sure that young and apparently borderline post-pubescent girls are not pregnant; cf. Q 2:228). This is not just some interpretation that modern Islamists like Sayyid Qutb came up with; rather, such an interpretation of Q 65:4 is mentioned at least as far back as al-Tabarī (839 – 923), one of our oldest and most important sources of early Islam.

Furthermore, the Andalusian Malikī jurisprudent and philosopher, Ibn Rushd (1126 – 1198), known to the West as “Averroes,” confirms the permissibility of having sexual relations with pre-pubescent girls in his legal handbook, Bidāyat al-Mujtahid wa Nihāyat al-Muqtaṣid (literally, “the beginning for him who interprets the sources independently and the end for him who wishes to limit himself”). In this work, and under the section entitled “the Waiting Period for Wives,” he states the following: “the divorced woman whose marriage stands consummated may or may not be one who menstruates. If she does not menstruate, she may be a minor or beyond the age of menstruation.[5]

It should be noted here that one of the most renowned Muslim figures of all times is unequivocally implying that marriage and sexual relations with pre-pubescent girls in Islam are licit.

4. Under Sharia, Wives do not Share the Same Divorce Rights as Their Husbands. 
Under Sharia, a husband can divorce his wife simply by stating, “you are divorced” three times in the presence of two adult mentally sound males, without even having to justify his decision, and he will retain custody of any children. In this connection, Professor Samir states that “the most absurd thing is that if the husband later repents of his decision [of divorce] and wants to ‘recover’ his wife [for the third time], she must first marry another man who in his turn will repudiate her (Q 2:229-30).”[6] By contrast, no such power is given to the wife. 

5. Under Sharia, Female Rulers are Frowned Upon. 
Sharia frowns upon female rulers. This originates from a ḥadīth in Sahih al-Bukhari, the most trusted Muslim aḥadīth , where Muhammad, upon hearing the news that the people of Persia had made the daughter of Khosrau their Queen, states: “Never will succeed such a nation as makes a woman their ruler.”[7] Indeed, this is one of the reasons that is often cited for why women cannot be caliphs.[8] Although this is what Sharia teaches in theory, the practicalities of life give rise to some exceptions. In the Muslim world you did occasionally have female rulers like Shajarat al-Durr (d. 1257) who ruled Egypt in Medieval times. In more recent times, Benazir Bhutto won the elections in Pakistan and became Prime Minister of that country for two non-consecutive terms (1988-90, and 1993-96). So did Shikha Hasina, who won elections three times and is currently the Prime Minister of Bangladesh. 

6. Under Sharia, Wives Should be Subservient to their Husbands. 
Under Sharia, a husband has absolute authority over his wife. As Professor Samir remarks: “A man can forbid his wife to go out from the home, even to go to the mosque, since in a ḥadīth Muḥammad tells a woman that her prayer has no value if it is done without her husband’s permission.”[9] This is confirmed by The Reliance of the Traveler, an authoritative fourteenth-century Shafiʿī legal manual written by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misrī (1302 – 1367). The manual states that “a woman may not leave the city without her husband or a member of her unmarriageable kin….accompanying her, unless the journey is obligatory, like the hajj. It is unlawful for her to travel otherwise, and unlawful for her husband to allow her.”[10]

Furthermore, under Sharia, polygyny is allowed, for Q 4:3 explicitly permits Muslim men to marry “what seems good to you of the women: two, or three, or four.”[11] Because of this verse, till this day in many Muslim countries it is permissible for a man to marry more than one wife.

Regardless of whether this custom was deemed to be socially acceptable by the seventh-century standards of Arabia, today only the very rare wife would find it permissible for her husband to marry another woman, let alone two or three more, even if she keeps her status as first wife. 

7. Under Sharia, Women are Deemed Lacking in Faith and Intelligence. 
As students of Islam know very well, Sharia does not just draw from Qur’ānic verses for its oppressive view of women. For it also draws on the aḥadīth (the so-called sayings of Muḥammad). In one such hadīth from Sahīh Al-Bukhārī, the most authoritative Sunni collection of ahādīth, Muḥammad states that the majority of the dwellers of hellfire are women, that women curse frequently and are ungrateful to their husbands, and, famously, that women are “deficient in intelligence and religion.” The full hadīth is as follows:

 Once Allah’s Messenger [i.e., Muḥammad] went out to the Muṣalla [place of prayer] (to offer the prayer) of `Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O Allah’s Messenger?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O Allah’s Messenger! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion [emphases added].”

Fundamentalist Muslims the world over insist on accepting this ḥadīth, which is virtually universally accepted as authentic or ṣahīh by even moderate Muslim scholars (who generally view just about everything in the collection of al-Bukahrī as authentic). Such aḥadīth have been a source of great injustice to women living in majority-Muslim countries.

8. Under Sharia, Raping Female Captives is Permissible. 
What is particularly egregious in Sharia is that warriors are permitted to capture the women of “infidels” and use them for their sexual gratification. According to Q 4:3, Q 4:24, Q 23:5-6, Q 70:22-30, having female slaves, “those whom your right hand possess” (ما ملكت ايمانكم, transliterated as ma malikat aymānikum), is permissible.

Furthermore, interpreting ma malikat aymānikum as “female slaves” is not something that, pace Western-Muslim apologists, is only advanced by so-called Islamophobes. Our earliest tafsīr (Qur’ānic exegesis), the tafsīr of Muqātil Ibn Sulaymān, states that ma malikat aymānikum means walā’id (ولائد), which denotes female slaves.[12] This view has been held by many mufasirīn (exegetes) since medieval times, and A.J. Droge’s recent 2013 scholarly translation of the Qur’ān, which is, in my opinion, the best English translation around, explains the phrase “those whom your right hand possess” as straightforwardly referring to female slaves.

Having female slaves, Droge explains, is permissible even when the (Muslim) male is married.[13] Indeed, the Qur’ān contrasts female slaves with married women a few times, clearly demonstrating female slaves were not considered to be wives. There can be no doubt that in using the term ma malikat aymānikum, the Qur’ān is here referring to females who have been captured during war for the sexual gratification of their male captors. Indeed, reading Ibn Iṣhāq’s Sīrat Rasūl Allāh, we can discern that Muhammad himself took female concubines and permitted his warriors to do likewise as well.

Why is the European Leadership mindset so passive in the face of their own nations’ cultural extinction? How can anyone be so dense, so clueless so puerile so as not to have foreseen at the very start of this hijrah what the true objective was.
The collective stance is now breaking apart some what (Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia defying migrant quotas); however, Europe at the present point has largely gone over the edge. Rapes, beatings, honor killings and/or killing of non-Muslims are all treated gingerly because of “cultural differences”. The mores (social conduct) of the various states making up the EU are being destroyed, including such mundane practices as defecating only in toilets.
Behold: UK university reminds “multicultural” students to poop only in toilets, not showers or trash cans, then immediately apologizes for being insensitive   Seriously?

The following article discusses the surrender of Italy’s feckless leadership to the invasion and de facto conquest of their nation–just one example.

State of ‘Collapse’: Italy Overwhelmed as 13,500 Muslim Migrants Arrive in Past Two Days

Al hijrah.
We are witnessing the fall of Europe. They’ve reached a tipping point — a point of no return.
“The government continues to show a worrying powerlessness in the face of a situation that becomes more and more dramatic every day,” said Paolo Romani, president of the senators of Forza Italy.
Trump is right! back the ban!

Italy’s migrant welcome centers are in a state of “collapse” as huge waves of African migrants take advantage of the temperate climate to make the crossing from Libya to the Italian peninsula.

On Tuesday, 8,500 African migrants are reaching Italian shores aboard 14 different ships, adding to the 5,000 who arrived on Monday. The massive arrivals have led local media as well as politicians to speak of an authentic immigrant “invasion” exceeding the country’s capacity of assimilation.
Officials reported on June 15 that more than 65,000 migrants had arrived since the beginning of the year, but that was prior to the latest influx. Figures for the year now stand at 73,380 migrants into Italy, or a rise of 14.42 percent over the same period in 2016, when then-record arrivals had reached 64,133.

 The exodus from Libya to the Italian coast has continuing unabated with no visible action on the part of the Italian government or the European Union to halt it.

The illegal immigrants who reach the Libyan coast from all parts of Africa (most recently, from the West), embark in the Mediterranean on makeshift boats. The majority of these are picked up either by NGOs or humanitarian organizations or official Italian Coast Guard or naval vessels.
Despite their intention to travel up through Italy into northern Europe, the vast majority of migrants end up remaining in Italy, mostly because the northern borders with France, Switzerland and Austria are closely watched.
According to the Interior Ministry, the region that has taken in the most migrants is Lombardy (13 percent), followed by Lazio (9 percent), Campania (9 percent), Piedmont (8 percent), Veneto (8 percent), Emilia Romagna (8 percent), Tuscany (7 percent), Puglia (7 percent) and Sicily (7 percent).
“The government continues to show a worrying powerlessness in the face of a situation that becomes more and more dramatic every day,” said Paolo Romani, president of the senators of Forza Italy. Romani urged Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni to “safeguard national interests, even if necessary by blocking the access to Italian ports.”
Romani has also called on the UN Security Council to intervene, urging “shared strategies to stop the departures” from Libya, as well as a ban on NGOs whose shuttle service to Italy only serves to “aggravate the situation.”
Romani’s counterpart in the House, Forza Italia’s Renato Brunetta, has petitioned Italian Interior Minister Marco Minniti to block migrant ships heading to Italy and instead to request European Union (EU) Officials to have the vessels diverted to other Mediterranean ports.
The head of Italy’s Northern League party, Matteo Salvini, expressed his exasperation in a tweet to his followers, noting that Tuesday’s arrival of 8,500 illegal immigrants onto Italian soil was “fucking enough.”
“This complicit government will do nothing,” he wrote, “so it’s up to us to use every (licit) means we can,” while adding the hashtag #stopinvasione.

Italy’s national anti-mafia and counterterrorism prosecutor, Franco Roberti, has acknowledged that this new wave of landings poses its own dangers, and constitutes “a threat to national security.”
Meanwhile, on Sunday 52 would-be West African emigrants were found dead in the desert area north of the river Niger, on the border with Libya, while 24 of their companions were rescued.
The prefect of the northern region of Bilma, Fatoumi Boudou, confirmed that a “group of about 70 people traveling from Agadez [Niger] to Libya aboard three vehicles had been abandoned in the desert without food or water” by traffickers.

Germany has surrendered its authority to Muslim crime gangs?
How could a sovereign nation so willingly allow itself to be conquered by allowing a de facto invasion of a sworn enemy. How did it reach this point?
These gangs can be defeated but it will take strength, commitment, and the will to undertake what needs to be done. Either the German leadership lacks such qualities, or it is in complete collusion with these groups. There is no in-between.
Will this happen in America?

Germany: Police Powerless Against Middle Eastern Crime Gangs
“The clans simply have no respect for the authorities.” by Soeren Kern
June 18, 2017

    • Observers have surmised that the real reason for the judge’s leniency was that he feared his family might be subjected to retribution from the clan.

    • “In their concept of masculinity, only power and force matter; if someone is humane and civil, this is considered a weakness. In clan structures, in tribal culture everywhere in the world, ethics are confined to the clan itself. Everything outside the clan is enemy territory.” — Ralph Ghadban, Lebanese-German political scientist and leading expert on Middle Eastern clans in Germany.

    • “The state promotes organized crime with taxpayer money.” — Tom Schreiber, a member of the Berlin House of Deputies.

A court in Hanover has handed suspended sentences to six members of a Kurdish clan who seriously wounded two dozen police officers during a violent rampage in Hameln. The court’s ruling was greeted with anger and derision by police who said it is yet another example of the laxity of Germany’s politically correct judicial system.
The case goes back to January 2014, when a 26-year-old clan member, arrested for robbery, tried to escape from the magistrate’s office by jumping out of a seventh-floor courtroom window. The suspect was taken to the hospital, where he died. Members of his clan subsequently ransacked the hospital, as well as the court, and attacked police with rocks and other projectiles; 24 police officers and six paramedics were injured.
The judge said he was lenient because the defendants witnessed the death of the 26-year-old and were traumatized. The judge also revealed that he had reached a deal with the clan, which among other effects prevented police from testifying in court.
Dietmar Schilff, chairman of the GdP police union in Lower Saxony, said that the ruling had left many police officers shaking their heads in disbelief: “All police forces expect protection and support from the state.” He added:

“If we want to protect those who ensure public security, it must be clear that anyone who attacks police officers attacks the state — and has to fear appropriate consequences. It does not matter from which milieu the perpetrators come.”

Observers have surmised that the real reason for the judge’s leniency was that he feared his family might be subjected to retribution from the clan.
Middle Eastern crime syndicates have established themselves across Germany, where they engage in racketeering, extortion, money laundering, pimping and trafficking in humans, weapons and drugs.
The syndicates, which are run by large clans with origins in Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, among other places, operate with virtual impunity because German judges and prosecutors are unable or unwilling to stop them.
The clans — some of which migrated to Germany during Lebanon’s 1975-1990 civil war and have grown to thousands of members — now control large swathes of German cities and towns — areas that are effectively lawless and which German police increasingly fear to approach.

Ralph Ghadban, a Lebanese-German political scientist and a leading expert on Middle Eastern clans in Germany, said that the Hanover ruling was a massive failure of the German judicial system. He added that the only way for Germany to achieve control over the clans is to destroy them:

“In their concept of masculinity, only power and force matter; if someone is humane and civil, this is considered a weakness. In clan structures, in tribal culture everywhere in the world, ethics are confined to the clan itself. Everything outside the clan is enemy territory.”

In an interview with Focus, Ghadban elaborated:

“I have been following this trend for years. The clans now feel so strong that they are attacking the authority of the state and the police. They have nothing but contempt for the judiciary…. The main problem in dealing with clans: state institutions give no resistance. This makes the families more and more aggressive — they simply have no respect for the authorities….
“The state must destroy the clan structures. Strong and well-trained police officers must be respected on the street. It is a poor example if clan members are allowed seriously to injure 24 policemen and six others without having to fear real consequences. In addition, lawyers and judges must be trained. The courts are issuing feeble judgments based on a false understanding of multiculturalism and the fear of the stigma of being branded as racist….
“The clans adhere to a religious group, a kind of sect with an Islamic orientation. The Islamic understanding of their spiritual leader, Sheikh al-Habashi, who died a few years ago, justifies violence against unbelievers. He taught that there is only the house of ​​war [Dar al-Harb], which justifies plundering unbelievers and possessing their wives….”

In Berlin, a dozen or more Lebanese clans dominate organized crime in the German capital, according to Die Welt. They effectively control the districts of Charlottenburg, Kreuzberg, Moabit, Neukölln and Wedding. The clans are committed to counterfeiting, dealing in drugs, robbing banks and burglarizing department stores. Experts estimate that around 9,000 people in Berlin are members of clans.
The clans reject the authority of the German state. Instead, they run a “parallel justice system” in which disputes are resolved among themselves with mediators from other crime families. A classified police report leaked to Bild described how the clans use cash payments and threats of violence to influence witnesses whenever German police or prosecutors get involved.

The clans are now canvassing refugee shelters in search of young and physically strong men to join their ranks. State Prosecutor Sjors Kamstra explained:

“The refugees come here with no money. They are shown how inexpensive money can be obtained very quickly. Poverty makes this seductive. Many of them cannot speak German and are naturally vulnerable when they are addressed by someone in their native language. For the clans, the refugees are welcome newcomers, because they are new here and are not known to the police.”

The clans have also entered the refugee business by buying real estate and renting those properties to asylum seekers at exorbitant prices. Focus magazine reported that they are laundering dirty money while at the same time getting paid by the German state to house migrants.
Focus reporters visited a dilapidated apartment in Berlin in which five Syrian refugees were accommodated in 20 square meters (215 square feet). On the regular rental market the apartment would barely have yielded €300 ($335) a month in rent, but the clan collects around €3,700 ($4,125) per month from the German state, which pays landlords to house migrants. “Business with the refugees is now more profitable than drug trafficking,” said Heinz Buschkowsky, a former mayor of Neukölln.
The Berlin Criminal Police Office (Landeskriminalamt) confirmed that “proceeds from criminal offenses, including organized crime, were invested in real estate by the persons concerned or by third parties.” Tom Schreiber, a member of the Berlin House of Deputies, said the clans have exposed the moral bankruptcy of the German government: “The state promotes organized crime with taxpayer money.”
“Berlin is lost,” said Michael Kuhr, a well-known Berlin-based security consultant. “These clan structures have established themselves in all areas of organized crime. We will never go back to how things were 20 years ago. In addition, these people are highly dangerous and have lost all respect for the power of the state.”
In Duisburg, a leaked police report revealed that in the Marxloh district, the streets are effectively controlled by Lebanese clans that reject the authority of German police. They have taken over entire streets to carry out illegal business activity. New migrants from Bulgaria and Romania are contributing to the problems. Marxloh’s streets serve as invisible boundaries between ethnic groups, according to Die Welt. Residents speak of “the Kurdish road” or “the Romanian road.”
Police say they are alarmed by the aggressiveness and brutality of the clans, which are said to view crime as leisure activity. If police dare to intervene, hundreds of clan members are mobilized to confront the police. A local woman interviewed by Deutschlandfunk radio said she was afraid for her safety: “After dark I would not stand here because there are a lot of conflicts between foreigners, especially between Lebanese and Turks.”
A 17-page report prepared for the state parliament in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) revealed that Lebanese clans in Duisburg divide up neighborhoods in order to pursue criminal activities. These clans do not recognize the authority of the police. Their members are males between the ages of 15 and 25 and “nearly 100%” of them are known to police.
The report also described the situation in Duisburg’s Laar district, where two large Lebanese families call the shots: “The streets are actually regarded as a separate territory. Outsiders are physically assaulted, robbed and harassed. Experience shows that the Lebanese clans can mobilize several hundred people in a very short period of time by means of a telephone call.”
Peter Biesenbach of the Christian Democrats (CDU) said: “If this is not a no-go area, then I do not know what is.” He has called for an official inquiry to determine the true scope of the criminal clans in NRW.
NRW Interior Minister Ralf Jäger rejected that request because such a study would be politically incorrect:

“Further data collection is not legally permissible. Both internally and externally, any classification that could be used to depreciate human beings must be avoided. In this respect, the use of the term ‘family clan’ (Familienclan) is forbidden from the police point of view.”

In nearby Gelsenkirchen, Kurdish and Lebanese clans are vying for control of city streets, some of which have become zones that are off-limits to German authorities. In one incident, police were patrolling an area in the southern part of the city when they were suddenly surrounded and physically assaulted by more than 60 members of a clan.
In another incident, two police officers stopped a driver after he ran a red light. The driver stepped out of the car and ran away. When police caught up with him, they were confronted by more than 50 clan members. A 15-year-old attacked a policeman from behind and strangled him to the point of unconsciousness.
Senior members of the Gelsenkirchen police department subsequently held a secret meeting with representatives of three Arab clans in order to “cultivate social peace between Germans and Lebanese.” A leaked police report revealed that the clans told Police Chief Ralf Feldmann that “the police cannot win a war with the Lebanese because we outnumber them.” The clan members added: “This applies to all of Gelsenkirchen, if we so choose.”
When Feldman countered that he would dispatch police reinforcements to disrupt their activities, the clan members laughed in his face and said: “The government does not have enough money to deploy the numbers of police necessary to confront the Lebanese.” The police report concluded that German authorities should not harbor any illusions about the actual balance of power: “The police would be defeated.”
Another leaked police report revealed that the clans are the “executive body of an existing parallel legal system to self-adjudicate matters between large Kurdish and Lebanese families in the western Ruhr area.” These clans “despise the police and German courts” and “settle their matters on their own terms.”
The Frankfurter Neue Presse reported that Kurdish, Lebanese and Romanian clans have divided up the Gelsenkirchen districts of Bismarck, Rotthausen and Ückendorf, including around the central station, and have “claimed individual streets for themselves.”
Arnold Plickert, the head of the police union in North Rhine-Westphalia, warned: “Several rival rocker groups, as well as Lebanese, Turkish, Romanian and Bulgarian clans, are fighting for supremacy of the streets. They make their own rules; the police have nothing more to say.”
In Düsseldorf, two members of a clan brutally assaulted a 49-year-old woman who witnessed a car accident in the Flingern district. Her mistake, apparently, was to corroborate the “wrong” version of what she saw. The Rheinische Post called on the German government to fight the clans:

“The threat remains, in particular wherever large families, mostly immigrants, place the supposed need for the protection of their loved ones above all else. The readiness for violence is great, the inhibition threshold is low. The punishment of existing laws hardly deters anyone.”

In Naumburg, police confiscated the driver’s license of Ahmed A., a 21-year-old member of a Syrian clan, during a traffic stop. Almost immediately, police were surrounded by a mob of other clan members. The police retreated. The mob then marched to the police station, which they proceeded to ransack.
Ahmed A., a serial offender whose asylum application was rejected but who remains in Germany, said: “Lock me up. I have nothing to lose. I am going to put a bullet in the head of every single police officer. I will make your life feel like hell. Then I’ll just be a cop killer.” He also warned the police officer who seized his license: “I will destroy his life. I know exactly where he lives.” He then explained what he would do to the officer’s wife and daughter. Ahmed A. was allowed to walk free; police said there were insufficient grounds for his arrest.
Naumburg police have defended their weak response as being due to a lack of personnel, but regional parliamentarian Daniel Sturm pointed to the big picture: “We are talking about resistance to the power of the state.” The Interior Minister of Saxony-Anhalt, Holger Stahlknecht, said that it appeared as though the Syrian clan had established a “parallel society” in Naumburg. A local newspaper noted that the police’s failure to act “sounds like the capitulation of the state of law (Rechtsstaat).”
In Mülheim, around 80 members of two rival clans got into a mass brawl following a dispute between two teenagers. When police arrived, they were attacked with bottles and stones. More than 100 police backed up by helicopters were deployed to restore order. Five people were taken into custody but then released.
In Munich, police arrested 20 female members of a Croatian clan believed to be responsible for up to 20% of all the burglaries committed in Germany. Investigators believe that the clan has at least 500 members throughout Germany.
In Bremen, police effectively surrendered to clans from Kurdistan and the Balkans because of the need to conserve limited personnel resources for the fight against spiraling street crime by migrant youths.
Rainer Wendt, head of the German Police Union (DPolG), criticized city officials for their lack of resolve. “Bremen has capitulated to extremely dangerous clans. The state’s monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force [Gewaltmonopol des Staates] is now becoming the law of the jungle. Security continues to go down the drain.”

 Below are two short videos that are a must see.

 

Faithkeepers is an upcoming documentary film about the violent persecution of Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East. The film features exclusive footage and testimonials of Christians, Baha’i, Yazidis, Jews, and other minority refugees, and a historical context of the persecution in the region. Due to be released next year, the film also follows the story of a 24-year-old Christian student from North Carolina on her journey of understanding, discovery and solidarity with persecuted brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Faithkeepers – the movie and the movement – will awaken, enlighten and inspire all people of faith to stand up and take action.

Hussein Abubakr, a moderate Muslim from Egypt, says that most Muslims are moderate, but their leaders are not. His revelations are sobering, especially for truly moderate Muslims who are being swept into the vortex of extremism whether they approve or not. Most Muslims remain quiet because they fear retribution and do not want to be accused of rejecting their faith. Western values that include freedom of speech and the press, and tolerance of other religions are incompatible with Sharia Law.  He calls upon Islam to reform itself. Abubakr is a courageous man. –GEG
Below is an excellent informative 5 minute video from Prager University which states some very uncomfortable truths for deniers regarding Islam. Can moderate Muslims and non-Muslim apologists understand and accept them?
The worst criticism appears to come from non-Muslim leftists toward former Muslims who speak the truth. When such people continue to stand pat in the face of such glaring facts, it raises the obvious question—just what is the apologist’s/denier’s  true agenda?

Europe has fallen but could be turned around if its leaders chose to stand in line with majority of their own citizens. Should they not rise, and America is left alone and is  either unable or unwilling to resist, we will see a worldwide pogrom against “non-believers” 1000 times the size of the holocaust.
The following posts contain many perspectives as to the ongoing war against western Civilization. In the end, they all tie together for the bigger picture.

Update FYI: Anti-Shariah rallies planned for 28 U.S. cities June 10.
Go Here for more information. 

The Enemy within paving the way for America’s downfall:
In his article, The Democrats’ Second Secession & America’s New Civil War David Horowitz discusses Senator Kamala Harris’s commencement speech at Howard University in which she urged Graduates to stand behind the Trump resistances. This was not a commencement speech, it was a clear cut call to arms!
Excerpts: “…Graduates, indeed we have a fight ahead. This is a fight to define what kind of country we are, and it’s a fight to determine what country we will be.”
Ignore for a moment the impropriety of addressing a class of students as though they were Democratic Party operatives. Focus instead on the statement itself. The call “to define what kind of country we are” is an ominous agenda for America. Compared to other nations, America is absolutely unique in one regard: it is a country defined in its creation… America was created by peoples of diverse origins and ethnicities and on principles that were universal. The American union was forged in a set of founding documents that insisted on the equality of citizens – regardless of origins. The idea that creates the identity “American” is summarized in America’s official motto: e pluribus unum – out of many, one…
Identity politics is, in fact, the antithesis of the American idea. It is a reversion to tribal loyalties. It regards diverse origins – colors, ethnicities, genders and classes – as primary, and proposes a hierarchy of privilege based on them, which it justifies as a reversal of past oppressions. entire post

In his following post A War of Cultures Allan Massie gives an interesting perspective regarding the relationship between the war on terrorism in the Middle East and Islamist violence on the domestic front.

Excerpts: Islamist terrorism is going to be with us for a long time; there will be more atrocities like the one in Manchester last week, and many more just-as-atrocious attacks in Muslim countries, too. You have to be a super-optimist to believe otherwise, or to suppose that there is any quick and sure way of preventing all acts of terror, or eliminating terrorism itself. The truth is we don’t know any way of doing either…
We have had years of military victories and are still losing the war.
ISIS—the Islamic so-called State—is being defeated…Its pretensions to being a state are being destroyed. This is good news for the people it has enslaved and treated abominably in the parts of Iraq and Syria it has occupied. Therefore it’s welcome.
Yet, in the wider sense, this victory is insignificant. It doesn’t, and won’t, secure the peace and freedom from terror that we long for. The limitations of the language of strength and power are all too evident…
Terrorist groups require some degree of support from the civilian population and the ability to attract new recruits to replace members killed or arrested. Without both they can be extinguished: Examples are the Italian Red Brigades and the Baader-Meinhof Red Army Faction in West Germany. The IRA and the Basque terrorists failed partly because they had insufficient popular support and came to accept that their political aims could not be achieved by terrorism and violence.
It was important, however, that ultimately it was possible to negotiate with the IRA, possible because some common ground existed.
There is no such common ground to be found with Islamist terrorism, therefore no basis for negotiation…. (emphasis mine)
It is futile to seek economic reasons for those who complete that journey. The Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi, was well educated… was sufficiently well-off to take skiing holidays. According to research carried out on behalf of the World Bank, a majority of Western recruits to ISIS had a university education.
I repeat: It’s a war of cultures, and if it is to be won it will be won in Europe, Britain, the USA, and Canada, not in the Middle East. Meanwhile Western governments cozy up to Saudi Arabia regardless of the fact that the Saudis finance the Wahhabist mosques where the duty of jihad is preached (emphasis mine ).  Entire article worth the read!

In the following article, The Left’s Betrayal of Terrorism’s Victims Mark Tapson discusses the leftist lunacy of denial of the truth. While some are definitely in collusion with terrorism, far too many are useful idiots who have been indoctrinated against any form of discrimination. How could anyone with half a brain view opposition to murder by Allah Akbar screaming thugs and terrorist acts as “racism” or any other form of a so called discriminatory ism which resides in the sacred text of the Leftist Mantra?
Excerpts:“All you need is love” is not a counter terrorism strategy.
The recent massacre of Ariana Grande concertgoers in Manchester at the hands of a Muslim suicide bomber prompted the usual celebrity blather about conquering terrorism through love. Pop superstar Katy Perry, for example, pleaded “No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist. We’re just all loving on each other and we should just stay loving on each other.” Sorry, but as much singalong fun as The Beatles’ “All You Need is Love” was half a century ago, it’s not a counter terrorism strategy. Pretending that it is is a betrayal of the memory of the men, women, and children slaughtered in the name of Allah, as well as a betrayal of the victims to come – and there will be many, many more unless we stop passively mourning and act upon the righteous anger in our hearts… After Ariana Grande announced that she would return to Manchester for a benefit concert for the victims, Cole praised her inclusive message to her fans, which read, in part,

The compassion, kindness, love, strength and oneness that you’ve shown one another this past week is the exact opposite of the heinous intentions it must take to pull off something as evil as what happened… We will not quit or operate in fear. We won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win.”

Cole calls these sentiments “the essence of counterinsurgency.” In fact, they are the essence of submission. (emphasis mine)
Entire article

In her article The Left’s Unilateral Suicide Pact Heather Mac Donald discusses the brain dead commitment by EU leaders and their minions to open borders to all immigrants no matter what the consequences may be. Is such “commitment” outright treachery and/or treason?
Excerpt:A rethinking of immigration policies is off the table. Nothing that an Islamic terrorist can do will ever shake the left-wing commitment to open borders—not mass sexual assaults, not the deliberate slaughter of gays, and not, as in Manchester last week, the killing of young girls. The real threat that radical Islam poses to feminism and gay rights must be disregarded in order to transform the West by Third World immigration. Defenders of the open-borders status quo inevitably claim that if a terrorist is a second-generation immigrant, like Abedi, immigration policy has nothing to do with his attack. (Abedi’s parents emigrated to Britain from Libya; his immediate family in Manchester lived in the world’s largest Libyan enclave outside Africa itself.) Media Matters ridiculed a comment about the Manchester bombing by Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt with the following headline: fox news host suggests ‘open borders’ are to blame for Manchester attack carried out by British native.

Again, Pam Geller nails it in her discussion, Eyewitness: Muslim Attackers Shouted “THIS IS FOR ALLAH” in FIVE LOCATIONS Terror Attacks in UK
Excerpt: Ramadan – respect it!
A jihad group explained it back in 2012: “The month of Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.” Referring to a jihad attack that happened at that time, the message continued: “One of our groups aided by Allah managed to bomb a bus full of Jewish tourists, plunderers of holy lands, after careful tracking. The holy war is not confined to a particular arena and we shall fight the Jews and the Americans until they leave the land of Islam.” (source: Robert Spencer)

Chris Gaubatz

Excellent information and contains many links. At the end of the this post  is a link from the original article to Gaubatz’s interview with Jamie Glazov.

Man who infiltrated ‘Muslim Mafia’ speaks out
‘They are incredibly organized, and they’re at this day in and day out’ 

by Art Moore 
He prayed alongside well-known Muslim Brotherhood figures, including the leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR.
But his objective was not worship. In fact, he was not even a Muslim. Chris Gaubatz grew a beard, went through a “conversion” ceremony at a notorious Northern Virginia mosque and became an intern for CAIR — ultimately gathering first-hand documentation of the group’s subversive aims — because he believes the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoots in the U.S. are a threat to the nation’s security.

“I was just young and in my 20s, and I was more than happy to serve my country,” he told Jamie Glazov in an interview on “The Glazov Gang.”
“We have men and women overseas who are getting shot at. From my perspective, the least that I could do is go into a mosque and pretend to be a Muslim,” he said.

Asked about his personal safety, Gaubatz said his faith in Jesus Christ has enabled him to “put any fear and anxiety aside.”
“What I’m worried about is doing the right thing and protecting this country,” he said. “And I know there are patriots all over the country that would be willing to do the same thing.”

Serving as an intern, Gaubatz gathered some 12,000 pages of CAIR documents that were headed for a shredder at the organization’s national office in Washington, just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol building. Information from the documents, as well as from audio and digital recordings of conversations, was published in “Muslim Mafia,” co-authored by his father, David Gaubatz, and investigative journalist Paul Sperry. The book demonstrated CAIR’s connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, the group that spawned al-Qaida and Hamas and stated in writing its intent to put America under Islamic law and the authority of the Quran.

CAIR responded to the book with a lawsuit in 2009 against Chris and David Gaubatz and others that only now is set to go to trial, likely in the fall.
Noting Islam dictates the penalty for abandoning the faith is death, Glazov asked whether someone who pretended to be a Muslim and “betrayed” Islam might be in even more jeopardy.

“From their perspective, this is a jihad, and if they’re willing to blow up children in Manchester, then, of course, they’re willing to go after someone like myself,” said Gaubatz, who now is vice president of the nonprofit Understanding the Threat, which provides training and consulting on the “threat of the global Islamic movement.”

But he said that from a security standpoint, going public with his story “was actually safer thing to do.”
“The last thing they want to do is bring any attention to this,” he said.
Islam the problem
Interviewed in the wake of the Manchester terrorist attack, Gaubatz said he witnessed first-hand how CAIR orchestrates the response of the Muslim community to such incidents to curb any negative publicity for Islam and make Muslims out to be the victims of a “backlash.”

“They work closely with their media contacts in the mainstream media, so that as soon as something like this happens, they’re the ones setting the narrative,” Gaubatz told Glazov.

He said the United States must stop approaching the threat “as though it is just people that are killing people, shooting things and blowing things up.”
“That is barbaric, it is savage, it is evil, but that is not how we’re going to lose this war,” he said of the tactic of terrorism.

“We crush the enemy when we face them on the battlefield. The way we’re going to lose this war is in the information battle space.

He emphasized that American is engaged in a “war of narratives.”
“And as long as we’re not having a discussion about Islam being the problem, we will never defeat that ideology,” he said.

Gaubatz said CAIR is working with “hard-left, Marxist and socialist groups” because they share the same short-term objective, “which is to tear down American society and rebuild it in their utopian worldview.”

In the long-run, their visions for the future obviously differ, but Muslims and the left work together in the mean time, Gaubatz said, “because they know that once they get the U.S. out of the way, there is nothing stopping them.”

Chris Gaubatz testifies before Congress on June 28, 2016
Chris Gaubatz testifies before Congress June 28, 2016

One year ago, as WND reported, Gaubatz testified before a hearing of a Senate Judiciary subcommittee chaired by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, titled “Willful Blindness: Consequences of Agency Efforts To Deemphasize Radical Islam in Combating Terrorism.”

In his prepared testimony, Gaubatz said that when his group, Understanding the Threat, offers training to federal, state and local law enforcement, Muslim Brotherhood groups “work to intimidate the hosts of the training venues into canceling the training by threatening them with cries of ‘Islamophobia’ or ‘racism.’”

He pointed out that a document the FBI entered into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation terror-funding trial in Texas, in which CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator, declares the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.

The document says the Muslim Brotherhood “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

‘Side by side’ with CAIR
Gaubatz grew a beard and converted to Islam at the Dar al Hijrah mosque near Washington, D.C., where previously the imam was Anwar al-Awlaki. The Washington Post had called al-Awlaki the face of modern Islam before he turned up in Yemen working with al-Qaida.

Gaubatz recalled praying “side by side” with CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad and spokesman Ibrahim Hooper.
He recalled hearing Hooper frequently use the phrase “those right-wingers.”

“He just absolutely despised anybody that was on the right side of the aisle,” Gaubatz told Glazov.
CAIR has a training program, he said, in which they teach Muslims how to respond to anything negative that is said about Islam by spinning the narrative and inserting the term “Islamophobia” into the conversation.
“They are incredibly organized, and they’re at this day in and day out,” he said.

He met Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., a Muslim, and was at the Capitol when the first Muslim elected to Congress, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was leading prayers.

“I used to go to mosques on behalf of CAIR and hand out literature,” Gaubatz said. “So, I lived this day in and day out, Monday through Friday for six months straight.”

In his travels to mosques across the country, he said, “one thing I noticed was Islam is Islam.”

“Those aren’t my words. Those are the Islamic scholars, whether you’re in Atlanta or Northern Virginia, or you’re reading literature out of Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia. It’s all the same Islam, and they’ll be the first to tell you that,” he said.

Trump and naming the enemy
Glazov asked Gaubatz his view of how the Trump administration is handling the threat.

President Donald Trump speaking in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on May 21, 2017.
President Donald Trump speaking in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, May 21, 2017.

He said he is supportive of the president and understands there is a battle within his party and even within his administration over how to frame the threat with regard to Islam.

President Trump, he said, is fully aware of the role of Islam, “but the establishment Republicans are fighting him tooth and nail.”

“If he were to actually come out right now and say the problem is Islam and we’re going to deal with this,” he said, “it would be Republicans that would fight him just as much as the left.”

The FBI cut off ties to CAIR in January 2009 after the group was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case, the largest terrorism-finance case in U.S. history.

More than a dozen CAIR leaders have been charged or convicted of terrorism-related crimes.
FBI wiretap evidence from the Holy Land case showed CAIR’s Awad was at an October 1993 meeting of Hamas leaders and activists in Philadelphia. CAIR, according to the evidence, was born out of a need to give a “media twinkle” to the Muslim leaders’ agenda of supporting violent jihad abroad while slowly institutionalizing Islamic law in the U.S.

A federal judge later determined that the Justice Department provided “ample evidence” to designate CAIR as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, affirming the Muslim group had been involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas.”

In addition, CAIR leaders have made statements affirming the aim of establishing Islamic rule in the United States.

The Islamic organization long had accused WND and others of “smearing” the Muslim group by citing a newspaper account of CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad telling Muslims in Northern California in 1998 that they were in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam’s rule over the country. But WND caught CAIR falsely claiming that it had contacted the paper and had “sought a retraction,” insisting Ahmad never made the statement. Three years later, the issue arose again, and WND found CAIR still had not contacted the paper.

CAIR spokesman Hooper also has expressed a desire to replace the U.S. system of government with an Islamic state.

“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” Hooper said in a 1993 interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”

Hooper, in an interview on Michael Medved’s radio show in October 2003, stated: “If Muslims ever become a majority in the United States, it would be safe to assume that they would want to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law, as most Muslims believe that God’s law is superior to man-made law.”

Dr. Sarah Halimi was the victim of a savage antisemitic murder in a Paris suburb in April. Photo: CRIF.

If the following article does not make the reader feel outrage and/or fear for the future of Western Civilization, nothing will:

“This is a hate crime. This savage hatred and violence is central to the teachings of Islam. The media, the government, they know. Hence the silence.
The murderer recited verses from the Quran. The police were there and didn’t help her while this devout Muslim savagely beat her.

[Upon] hearing Traore yelling “Allahu Akhbar!” and “Shaitan!” (Arabic for ‘Satan’), they feared a terrorist attack was taking place, and called for backup. Anti-terror officers did not arrive until 5:00 a.m., by which time Halimi had been thrown by her attacker from the window of her third-floor apartment to the ground below.

At a silent march of remembrance on the Sunday after the murder was met by local youths chanting “Death to the Jews” and “We Own Kalashnikovs.

French Jewish Anger Grows Over Savage Antisemitic Murder of Pensioner at Hands of Muslim in Paris Suburb

By Ben Cohen, Algemeiner, May 30, 2017:
As further details emerge of the brutal murder of an Orthodox Jewish woman in a Paris suburb at the hands of a Muslim assailant last month, French Jews are increasingly worried and angered by what one prominent member of the community called an “organized silence” surrounding the case.

Dr. Sarah Halimi — a 66-year-old pensioner living in the Paris suburb of Belleville — was murdered in the early hours of April 4 by Kada Traore, a 27-year-old immigrant from Mali.  After breaking into the neighboring apartment of another Malian family at 4:25 a.m. — whose terrified inhabitants locked themselves away as they heard him recite verses from the Quran — Traore jumped over the balcony and forced his way into Halimi’s apartment. As he beat the elderly lady savagely, her screams prompted neighbors to call the police.

Three officers arrived at 4:45 a.m. But on hearing Traore yelling “Allahu Akhbar!” and “Shaitan!” (Arabic for ‘Satan’), they feared a terrorist attack was taking place, and called for backup. Anti-terror officers did not arrive until 5:00 a.m., by which time Halimi had been thrown by her attacker from the window of her third-floor apartment to the ground below. Traore, reported to be a drug dealer and addict with a criminal record, then returned to the apartment of the Malian family where he resumed his prayers, and was not taken into police custody until almost 6:00 a.m.
Shock over the barbaric nature of the murder has been compounded by the reluctance of both the media and French authorities to recognize it as an antisemitic hate crime — even after a silent march of remembrance on the Sunday after the murder was met by local youths chanting “Death to the Jews” and “We Own Kalashnikovs.”

In an open letter to new French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb, Alexandra Laignel-Lavastine — a French journalist and expert on antisemitism — charged that “in the advanced decadence that reigns today in the country of (antisemitic comedian) Dieudonné, for whom ‘the Jews are dogs’ (and people laugh hysterically), it seems that a run-over dog deserves more attention than a murdered Jewish woman.”

Laignel-Lavastine also quoted William Attal, Halimi’s brother, who stated, “I have waited seven weeks before I said anything. The absolute silence about my sister’s murder has become intolerable.”
Since the murder, official and media accounts of what transpired have played up claims that Traore was suffering from mental illness, while virtually ignoring the antisemitic element of the crime.

A common theory is that the recent French election encouraged — in the phrase of Michel Gurfinkiel, a leading French political analyst and president of the Jean-Jacques Rousseau Institute in Paris — an “organized silence” around the Halimi murder.

“Such a story would benefit the Right and the National Front,” Gurfinkiel said. “Everyone is convinced this is why there has been such an organized silence around the story.”

A few days after the murder, Marine Le Pen — the leader of the far-right, anti-immigrant National Front — tweeted that Halimi’s fate made her want to “speak about Islamist antisemitism.” Le Pen was defeated by centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the presidential election on May 7.

“The Jewish community was very careful not to be suspected of siding with Marine Le Pen,” Gurfinkiel said. He also noted that state provision of security to religious buildings and institutions means that Jewish organizations are “reluctant to raise certain questions.”

But as more time passes in the wake of Halimi’s murder, the calls to recognize its antisemitic nature are growing. Interviewed by the Le Parisien newspaper last week, the lawyers for the Halimi family, Jean-Alex Buchinger and David Kaminsky, said in no uncertain terms that Sarah Halimi had been “targeted, tortured and killed by her assailant because she was Jewish.”

Halimi’s murder robbed the Jewish community in Paris of one of its most loved figures, known for her work as a doctor and as a kindergarten teacher. “She was very well known and respected, a great person,” Gurfinkiel said. “The tragedy is that she was living in that part of Paris where Jews are gradually leaving, since the security doesn’t exist anymore.”

It also brought forth reminders of the 2006 kidnapping and murder of a young French Jew, Ilan Halimi — no relation to Ruth Halimi — whose body was left for dead by a mostly-Muslim gang who seized him out of the belief that Jews were wealthy and willing to pay ransom money.

“The French police were of no help during the whole (Ilan Halimi) episode, rejecting any idea that antisemitism could have played a role in the affair and preferring to believe the absurd notion that this was the result of some war between rival gangs,” Laignel-Lavastine noted in her letter about Ruth Halimi to French Interior Minister Collomb. “Ten years later, we have reached the same point.”

Traore is currently undergoing psychiatric tests and Jewish communal leaders are impatient for more information from authorities. “The more time passes, the more the community feels that there is something you do not want to tell us,” commented Joel Mergui, head of the Consistoire — the governing body of French Jewish communities.

What will it take to stop the PC insanity that shields the truth regarding the Jihad against the West! These are not just attacks by lone wolves, disgruntled Muslims, or insane people. While such may engage in acts of violence, the underlying driver is JIHAD, coordinated and implemented by those who seek a Caliphate and the death of all non-believers. They must be rooted out and given no quarter in the legal system. They are murderers and must be dealt with as such.
Murder is murder no matter what the motivation. Will day care centers, pre-schools, or public schools be next?
Face the facts or die!
The post below addresses Manchester in detail:

Manchester: This Time They Came for Our Children
By Roger L Simon May 22, 2017

It’s not just “Manchester England, England.” If you think what happened in Blighty can’t happen here — 19 killed, 59 injured — you’ll have to excuse me if I say “You’re out of your bloomin’ mind.” Did you already forget 9/11/2001? Or the Boston Marathon? Or San Bernardino? Or the Orlando gay bar attack less than a year ago that killed 49?

Oh, yeah. Seems so long ago, doesn’t it, even that last one? The “new normal.” We put these things out of our minds the week after to deal with the next trivial Washington scandal or go about our petty lives. Our culture lives in a self-destructive willful blindness, refusing to see the obvious even though it happens again and again across the globe. Radical Islam, Islamism, or whatever you want to call it has been at war with us since the Twin Towers came down and even well before. And they have no intention whatsoever of stopping.

Nevertheless we respond in the most perfunctory manner, nattering on about how Islam is a”religion of peace,” criticizing ourselves and others for “Islamophbia,” or dismissing it all as a police matter.

But this time it was teenage girls — our children — (emphasis mine) in that Manchester audience, murdered by a suicide bomber. If he had been more successful gaining entry, he might have killed several hundreds of them instead of, at this writing, only 19.

Have we learned anything? Is this finally going to be enough? Will we at last wake up? You tell me that the next time you drop your young daughter off at a rock concert you’re going to feel comfortable. Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative, libertarian, or ladeedah, you’re going to have heart palpitations, I promise you.

Politicians blather on about how these terrorists are “cowards.” No, they’re not. Nothing cowardly about killing yourself for your vision of god, insane as it might be. What they are is maniacally evil, the same kind of evil that marched innocents into gas chambers in the 1940s. If you don’t confront it, it goes on and on, just as happened then. (emphasis mine)

So what do we do about it?

Begin with this:

Ban the word “Islamophobia” from the English language. It’s the biggest lie of our time, invented to distract from the obvious truth: Islam has a monumental problem with the modern world that affects all of us. Egypt’s al-Sisi knows it. Saudi King Salman seems now to know it. Only the “useful idiots” in the Western left deny this blatant reality. ISIS, al-Qaeda, and their ilk are the clear perpetrators, but the so-called liberals and progressives — in their endless morally narcissistic virtue signaling — are their enablers, actually their unindicted co-conspirators. It’s time we should indict them.

They keep repeating we shouldn’t tar all Muslims with this unconscionable murderous violence. Well, we shouldn’t. But if even ten percent of Muslims are accepting of violent jihadism, that’s ten percent of a billion and a half people, roughly four times the population of California and twice as big as all of France. Want to dismiss that as mere Islamophobia? You’re only contributing to its growth. And to the deaths of your children. (emphasis mine) Time to end this PC masquerade, which is a license to kill in disguise. Not all religions are the same, at least in their present forms. Buddhists aren’t blowing up teenagers in Manchester.

Also, time to get behind President Trump’s new initiative to enlist the Islamic world in their own reform. It’s high time an American president did that. Bush didn’t have the courage and Obama refused to believe there was a problem. He thought we were the problem — incredible, actually delusional, as that is in retrospect.(emphasis mine)

Politicians and the media particularly must face reality. We may not like it but we are at war. You should behave accordingly. This is Topic A — and there is no Topic B until further notice… that is unless you want Manchester actually to be the “new normal.” It pretty much is already. How horrible is that for all of us, how horrible for our children. Why don’t we all get together and put an end to it? It’s even more important than impeaching Trump.
