  • Black Lives Matter’s hypocritical anti-Semitism undermines the movement’s claim to seek justice

    Washinton Times ^ | August 23, 2016 | Jonathan Greenberg
    Black Lives Matter’s hypocritical anti-Semitism Smearing Jews undermines the movement’s claim to seek justice In its new platform, Black Lives Matter (BLM) has, despite the total lack of relevance to its own agenda or interests, thrown whatever heft it has behind the anti-Semitic movement to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) Israel. In doing so, it is inarguably contributing to the campaign to “other” the world’s only Jewish state and, with it, the Jews themselves. Using the justification that U.S. military aid to Israel “diverts much needed funding from domestic education and social programs,” the platform launches into a ridiculous, one-sided...

    Jews are 'adept at working the American political system' aided by 'the memory of the Holocaust' - extraordinary claim made by journal where Huma Abedin was assistant editor An Islamic journal where Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's top aide, was assistant editor published an article accusing Jews of 'working the American political system' – and being aided by the 'memory of the Holocaust'. Abedin, who is vice-chair of Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, spent 12 years as an assistant editor for Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs. Her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is the journal's editor-in-chief and has been accused of espousing the...

    Obama Provides Iran With $1.3 Billion, But Where Did The Money Go? Why the Obama administration is refusing to say where the funds ended up. August 25, 2016 Ari Lieberman    It appears that when it comes to its dealings with the Islamic Republic, the Obama administration’s miscues are boundless. The latest fiasco involves the recent transfer of $1.3 billion in taxpayer money to Iran’s mullahs. Both the White House and the State Department are shamefully unable or unwilling to provide the public with any pertinent information concerning the transfer.  At a State Department briefing, spokesman Mark Toner remained...

    War and Peace in Putin’s Middle East With America on the sidelines, Israel and the Arabs play a new game. August 25, 2016 P. David Hornik    The Times of Israel reports that, on Tuesday night, “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin…and discussed regional issues and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.” It was hardly, of course, their first chat. In June, Netanyahu was in Moscow to meet with Putin. He was there, too, for that purpose in September 2015 and April 2016, and last November they met briefly at the Paris climate conference. Their agenda includes...

    Back in April 2016, the New York Times published an article highlighting a number of Facebook pages in the Middle East being used to sell U.S. military equipment. A terrorist hoping to buy an antiaircraft weapon in recent years needed to look no further than Facebook, which has been hosting sprawling online arms bazaars, offering weapons ranging from handguns and grenades to heavy machine guns and guided missiles. The Facebook posts suggest evidence of large-scale efforts to sell military weapons coveted by terrorists and militants. The weapons include many distributed by the United States to security forces and their proxies...

    Two weeks ago we reported that as part of its proactive effort to tackle future terrorist attacks, the French government announced that starting in September, French 14-year-olds would receive lessons how to survive a terrorist attack on their schools, following a spate of Islamist killings in recent months. It appears that was not enough, because earlier today the France interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve announced France would deploy about 3,000 reserve troops, train school authorities and ramp up school anti-terror drills in case of attacks, its education and security ministers announced on Wednesday, a week before the start of a new...

Both incidents occurred on Monday in the neighborhood of Newham. In the first instance, a haredi family walking down the street was accosted by a man of African descent, who cursed them and demanded they leave the area. “F---ing Jews, go back to Isra-Hell. Don’t come around here. Go to Stamford Hill [a neighborhood with a large Jewish population], you’re not welcome.” Later that day, a 31-year old Jewish man was harangued by a group of men in...

    Early this morning Turkey invaded Syria. A contingent of 1,500 Turkish sponsored "Syrian rebels", aka Islamist from all over the world, were accompanied by some Turkish special forces and twenty tanks to capture the city Jarablus at the Turkish-Syrian border. The move followed a night of artillery warm-ups and bombing raids. Shortly after noon the "Syrian revolution" flag and the Turkish banner(!) were raised over the city. There was no resistance to the move. The Islamic State, which had been informed of the attack, had evacuated all fighters and their families out of Jarablus. (The families went to Raqqa but...

So much so that a British group, Liberty GB, has referred to Clinton as “Islam’s whore.” (Liberty GB describes itself as “Britain’s newest and most outspoken political party… a patriotic, anti-Islamisation party promoting Christian civilisation, Western freedoms and British culture.”) Read more: http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/08/24/hillary-clinton-pegged-islams-whore-check-ny-posts-omg-cigar-cover-382710#ixzz4IGXzeTb5

    Jihad Watch ^ | AUGUST 22, 2016 | CHRISTINE WILLIAMS
    Wardens in prisons in the UK (and throughout the West) are failing “to stop jihadi poison spreading in jails: Staff face being labelled racist if they stand up to hate preachers.” Calling out jihadist doctrine renders one a so-called “islamophobe,” and this label — intended to browbeat the infidel — must be fully resisted. UK prisons today show why: this label is enabling jihad activity. In America, it’s no different, as federal prisons are described by experts as “breeding grounds” for terrorists. The implications are severe…. “Prisons have long been criticized for a culture that can make some inmates more...

    Over the course of the 5 year-long civil war in Syria, the US has slowly escalated its military involvement. However one significant move which they have so far failed to implement is a No Fly Zone (NFZ) enforced by their aircraft over all (or just part) of Syria. Despite this, today the US may have tacitly announced just such a NFZ. In a press conference this evening, the Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook, made a number of statements regarding US forces in Syria. These statements came following reports that the US backed SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) had been bombed by...

Authorities said they believe the 15-year-old came to Kirkuk a week ago from Mosul, ISIS' most significant stronghold outside Syria. "He was captured before he reached...

According to JNS, the State Department had previously asserted that the PA worked to “prevent […] sermons with intolerant or anti-Semitic messages.” …

    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been tied to HAMAS, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. CAIR has also been named a terrorist organization itself by US ally the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to the fact that it is a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the granddaddy of all modern Sunni Jihadist organizations. Now, CAIR is conducting “outreach” to conservative groups and a major Tea Party organization in the state of Georgia.

    A senior official at the Islamic University in Lucca, Italy published a series of controversial Facebook posts, blasting the Italian Prime Minister and demanding “a final solution” for Zionists. The official, Rafelo Vilni, condemned Zionism, saying “there needs to be a final solution for Zionists,” adding that “real Jews are the victims of Zionism”. The post was later deleted, but not before the Israeli Embassy in Italy captured a screenshot of the message. Vilni also posted a comment slamming Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. .....

    Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Saturday his country is willing to accept a role for Syrian President Bashar Assad during a transitional period but insisted he has no place in Syria’s future. The comments came after Assad’s forces began attacking Kurdish positions this week, leading some Kurdish officials to speculate that a Syrian-Turkish rapprochement was underway at the expense of Kurdish autonomy in northern Syria. “There will be concessions on the Kurdish question,” said Nasser Haj Mansour, an adviser to the predominantly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces, which expelled the Islamic State group from their northern Syrian stronghold of Manbij...
  • The Iranian mask slips

    Iran has given up trying to hide its malevolent role in Yemen. It had long denied it was giving arms and ammunition to the Houthi rebels. The evidence to the contrary was damning. But this week the state news agency in Tehran admitted that the country had supplied missiles to the insurgents. This admission was significant. The Iranians knew that the missiles had been fired across the border into the Kingdom. They were therefore confessing to being complicit in an attack on Saudi Arabia. Iran’s interference in the Arab world has reached a new pitch. This week Tehran allowed the...

    A pro-government Turkish newspaper placed an ad at Istanbul’s main airport on Friday warning against travel to Sweden due to alleged high incidences of rape, the state-run news agency reported, in the latest escalation of tensions between Turkey and its European allies. Anadolu Agency said the ad by Güneş newspaper appeared on two billboards at Atatürk Airport’s International Terminal and read in Turkish and in English: “Travel Warning! Did you know that Sweden has the highest rape rate worldwide?” The ad was apparently placed in retaliation for a similar news ticker at the Vienna airport last week claiming Turkey allows...

    Russia is pressing Turkey for access to a key airbase used by the US as it tries to extend its influence in the Middle East. The American-built Incirlik base, about 65 miles from the Syrian border, is used by Nato and has about 50 US nuclear warheads stored on site. A senior Russian politician said that allowing Russian jets and bombers to use it would be a logical continuation of President Erdogan’s efforts to rebuild Turkey’s relations with the Kremlin. “It just remains to come to an agreement with Erdogan that we get the Nato base Incirlik as [our] primary…

  • Merkel says refugees didn't bring Islamist terrorism to Germany...Liberal Bubble World Report!

    Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday refugees had not brought terrorism to Germany, adding that Islam belonged in the country as long as it was practiced in a way that respected the constitution. More than a million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere arrived in Germany last year. The mood towards them has soured after a spate of attacks on civilians last month, including three carried out by migrants. Two of those attacks were claimed by the Islamic State militant group. "The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came...

    At the same time that Russia is condicting its latest massive military drill on the border with Ukraine, and one day after the latest stark warning by Ukraine' president Poroshenko that the simmering conflict with Russia may be set to explode again when he said on national TV that “the probability of escalation and conflict remains very significant" adding that "we don’t rule out full-scale Russian invasion", Russian president Putin made a not so subtle point that Crimea will not be relinquished when he flew into contested territory on Friday, one day after staging war games there, and said he...

    Two Syrian Su-24 jets struck Kurdish positions in and near Hasakah, in northeastern Syria, on Thursday, Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis told reporters. The US-led coalition scrambled planes near the northeastern Syrian city of Hasakah, after Syrian SU-24 airplanes dropped bombs “dangerously near” the US Special Forces operators embedded with the Kurdish YPG militia in the area. The strike came close to US Special Forces operators, who were embedded with the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), comprised of the Kurdish YPG and local Arab militias. When the strikes began, the “coalition forces on the ground” tried reaching the Syrian jets...

    Colin Powell rejected Hillary Clinton’s assertion to the FBI that he had advised her during a 2009 dinner party to use a personal email account. “General Powell has no recollection of the dinner conversation,” the former secretary of state’s office said in a statement Friday. “He did write Secretary Clinton an email memo describing his use of his personal AOL email account for unclassified messages and how it vastly improved communications within the State Department,” his statement said. …
