PROSPECT PARK, NEW JERSEY MAYOR, 
WHO COMPLAINED ABOUT DHS QUESTIONING, SUPPORTED AL-QAIDA-LINKED SYRIAN JIHADIS
BY JOHN ROSSOMANDO

This article originally was published by the American Thinker.
A New Jersey mayor who expressed bewilderment after being stopped and questioned by Customs and Border Protection (CPB) agents in August distributed aid in 2013 with pro-Muslim Brotherhood jihadists allied with al-Qaida's former Syrian affiliate, social media posts show. Other posts show Prospect Park Mayor Mohamed Khairullah's sympathies with various Syrian jihadist groups.
It isn't known whether those activities triggered the CBP questions. The agency declined to comment.
Nevertheless, Khairullah told the Washington Post in September that he "doesn't go near shady organizations" during numerous trips to Syria as a relief worker.
He complained at a September press conference organized by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that CBP pulled him aside upon his August return from Turkey to New York's JFK airport .
The agents took his electronic devices and interviewed him about his travels and his background. Agents told Khairullah they were keeping his phone, and it took him 12 days to get it back.
"I felt that I was selected basically because of my name and identity," Khairullah said.
He also claimed that his support for U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar might have led to his having been singled out.
"It's flat-out insulting," he said. "It's flat-out stereotyping of Muslims and Arabs."
Khairullah claimed his rights were violated when CBP agents asked him if he had met with any terrorists during his trip.
CAIR backed his claim that Khairullah was targeted solely due to his religion.
"And the only reason they're taken back to secondary inspection and questioned that way is because of their faith, what they happen to be wearing, and what direction they pray," said CAIR-New York Litigation Director Ahmed Mohamed.
It is more likely that Khairullah was pulled aside by the CBP due to his frequent travel to the Syrian warzone via Istanbul, former CBP Agent Phil Haney, who specialized in targeting potential terrorists, told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).
"This has to do with indicators of potential terrorism," Haney said, noting that the 2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas terrorism financing case proved the existence of a network of individuals and groups in the U.S. that support Islamist terrorism abroad."
Khairullah's Charity and its Terror-linked Partners
The mayor worked on relief missions and was a board member with Watan USA, the American branch of the London, England-headquartered Watan Foundation. Watan's partner organizations and some of its leaders have supported and assisted Al-Qaida in Syria. Its co-founder and President Moaz al-Sibaai belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Council of Britain's Business and Economics Committee.
A 2015 IRS tax form listed Khairullah as a Watan USA board member. It signed a cooperation agreement in 2016 with Turkey's IHH Humanitarian Relief.
Leaked Turkish documents show IHH provided logistical and financial support to al-Qaida's then-Syrian affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra, in 2013, in conjunction with Turkish intelligence agency, the MIT. IHH has aided al-Qaida since the 1990s and maintains close relations with Hamas, according to a report by terrorism analyst Evan Kohlmann, published by the Danish Institute for International Studies.
Khairullah's social media shows he repeatedly expressed support for Jabhat al-Nusra. For example, he praised the 2014 defection of a Hizballah faction to al-Nusra saying, "The Lord will be pleased." Other Khairullah Facebook posts show him supporting the Jabhat al-Nusra-led jihadist coalition called the "Army of the Conquest." He backed its 2015 military campaign in Syria's Idlib Province.
A 2016 Facebook post by Khairullah shows the Army of the Conquest entering the city of Idlib after kicking out the troops loyal to the Assad regime. A linked video in the post showed a tank flying the flag of Jabhat al-Nusra.
"Kneeling for thanks on the occasion of the liberation of #Idlib," Khairullah wrote.
He also posted a video by Ahrar al-Sham, sometimes referred to as the "Syrian Taliban." It was founded by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri's personal representative in Syria, Abu Khalid al-Suri.
Khairullah even thanked ISIS for taking bandits off the streets of Syria.
"A good thing that ISIS has done is to eliminate the thieves and bandits in their area of control. Allah knows what was behind this move," Khairullah wrote in a Jan. 5, 2014 tweet.
Khairullah did not respond to an email asking about his statements.
Mulham al-Jundi, the Turkey-based Syria director for Watan, with which Khairullah works, also has expressed support for Jabhat al-Nusra. For example, he condemned the Obama administration's December 2012 decision to classify it as a foreign terrorist organization.
Al-Jundi called al-Nusra the "strongest striker on the ground against [Syrian dictator] Bashar al-Assad and his army."
Syria's branch of the Muslim Brotherhood also condemned the designation. So did Mohammed Ghanem, former government relations director of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Syrian American Council (SAC). Khairullah served as an SAC board member in 2016.
In 2012, al-Jundi thanked Jabhat al-Nusra's humanitarian arm for taking control of flour distribution to Aleppo's bakeries. News accounts from that time show that the terrorist organization took control of the flour industry as part of its hearts and minds campaign.
"AQ's Syrian branch controls and runs flour mills, and sells to bakeries and direct consumers. The group uses this method to increase popular support more than for profit margins," a 2017 Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) report said. "Upon taking control of grain silos and bakeries in Aleppo in early 2013, AQ created and implemented a complex bread-distribution program designed to feed the entire city."
FDD noted that al-Nusra's involvement in the bread-baking business also provided a revenue source.
"Today we have reached some factories, the price of the mobile bakery costs about $200,000 to produce 10,000 bundles of bread a day... tighten your tricks :)," al-Jundi wrote in a December 2012 Arabic tweet, while acknowledging his organization had been to some of the bakeries.
At that time Jabhat al-Nusra's humanitarian arm had a monopoly on raw materials for baking bread in the area around Aleppo. Jabhat al-Nusra also was declared a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department in December 2012.
"#Nusra_Front in its endeavor to ease the human suffering of the people of the city of Aleppo helped to provide some bakeries with flour to assure bread for the citizens of #Syria," al-Jundi wrote, acknowledging Jabhat al-Nusra's involvement with providing raw materials to bakeries in Aleppo.
Other photos on Khairullah's Facebook page from that time showed him at an apparent Jabhat al-Nusra rally in Aleppo following Friday prayers. In one picture, three people held up the terrorist group's flag. Khairullah was in Aleppo at the time on behalf of Watan delivering bread to those in need.

Jabhat al-Nusra's black flag is featured at a rally Khairullah attended.
Khairullah accompanied a Muslim Brotherhood-linked militia called the Sheikh Abdu Fatah Abu Ghuddah Battalion during his April 2013 trip. It was named after the second supreme guide of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood who led an uprising against dictator Hafez al-Assad in the early 1980s. The Abu Ghuddah Battalion shared a common shariah committee with Jabhat al-Nusra, the Emirati newspaper Al-Etihad Press wrote.
Watan leaders, including Khairullah, used GoFundMe campaigns and other online fundraisers to finance their operations. Most of his links, as well as those posted by fellow Watan leaders, have either been deleted or expired. JP Morgan Chase closedan account belonging to Watan USA in 2015 without explanation. The account was restored. The bank declined to comment on the reasons behind closing the account.

ISLAMIST WINS VIRGINIA SCHOOL BOARD SEAT~FAMILY TIES TO MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, AL-QAEDA

ISLAMIST WINS VIRGINIA SCHOOL BOARD SEAT 
BY JOHN ROSSOMANDO
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
The daughter of one of America's most prominent Islamist leaders became the youngest woman and one of the first Muslim women elected to office in Virginia on Tuesday. Abrar Omeish, 24, wonan at-large seat on the Fairfax County school board as part of a Democratic wave that also gave the party control of both houses of Virginia's General Assembly.
Omeish's campaign focused on improving student-teacher ratios, improving teacher morale and improving district finances.
"This campaign represents a local movement to set a new standard of public service -- to provide accessible and inclusive leadership that elevates and empowers all people to participate," Omeish said in a statement. "Education is the starting point for all members of our community to access opportunity to meet their potential and we must fight to ensure that every child can succeed here."
Her campaign received support from her father, former Muslim American Society (MAS) President Esam Omeish. Prosecutors say MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood's "overt arm" in the United States.
Omeish had to resign from a state immigration board in 2006 after the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) released video of him endorsing violent jihad at a 2000 rally. He lauded Palestinians for learning the "jihad way" to achieve liberation. In 2016, he claimed that few Muslims had the same adherence to duty and morals as the Muslim Brotherhood. In 2011, he admitted that he used to belong to the Brotherhood . He's also a longtime board member at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, which has a history of supporting Brotherhood causes.
While a student at Yale in 2014, Abrar Omeish led the Muslim Student Association's (MSA) effort to silence ex-Muslim and Islamist critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She claimed that Hirsi Ali "does not have the scholarly credentials to speak on Islam" and demanded that a planned event featuring Hirsi Ali "be limited to subjects she can speak on from her personal experiences."
Abrar Omeish supports the Muslim Brotherhood-linked International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT), which has long endorsed an Islamic supremacist vision of society. Thirty years ago, IIIT's then managing editor of its social science journal, Shareefa al-Khatib, advocated modifying curricula to proselytize. Al-Khatib played a key role in introducing Islam and the Arabic language into the Fairfax County Public Schools in the 1990s.
Omeish discussed her campaign during a February IIIT podcast. She said her religious background would guide her actions should she be elected.
"Just thinking of the ways that Allah SWT's blessings don't come out of nowhere or just because, right? How do we, how do I maximize those opportunities in ways that serve the community and that answer again to being that witness? Ultimately, we will have to answer one day for what we were given, for what we saw, and what we did. So this was one of those very obvious trajectories in my mind that leads to a life of public service, within politics. Again, and again, I come back to wow, I'm really grateful to have a core moral guideline or core moral framework because this game is messy, and can turn into...it's very easy to turn into...to be self-centered, to have an ego, to waver on integrity when it comes to the decisions one makes politically and strategically," Omeish said.
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) heralded Omeish's win by tweeting out an article saying that she could make history. She spoke last year at CAIR's leadership conference in Arlington, Va.
Islamist activist Linda Sarsour also congratulated Omeish.
"Muslim American women continue to make our community and country proud. Abrar Omeish won a seat on the Fairfax County School board making her the youngest to ever serve in elected office in VA and one of two first Muslim American women," Sarsour wrote.
People with Muslim Brotherhood links praised Omeish's election.
"Congratulations mashallah God bless you," wrote Ghassan Hitto, the Syrian opposition's former Muslim Brotherhood prime minister. "I ask God blessed that his achievements be great for all the inhabitants of the state. So proud."
Hani Elkadi, president of the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Egyptian Americans for Freedom and Justice (EAFJ), praised the victory.
"A thousand congratulations Dr. Esam and may God help it, God willing," Elkadi wrote.
Radwan Masmoudi, president of the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID) and member of Tunisia's Brotherhood-linked Ennahda Party, also celebrated.
"Congratulations to our daughter Abrar," Masmoudi wrote.
Abrar Omeish did make history in Virginia Tuesday. Her Islamist ties and statements about religion guiding her priorities in office will merit observation.

Abrar Omeish is running on November 5th 2019, for a school board member-at-large seat in Fairfax County, VA. Abrar’s father, Esam Omeish, has been involved with Islamist/extremist Muslim beliefs before Esam hired former Al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki as an imam at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in 2001. But Abrar has never given her opinion on why Palestinians should give their lives to free “all of Palestine,” ask Abrar at her website, twitter, or Facebook.


“THE WOMEN WERE THE WORST”: YEZIDI WOMEN PLEAD WITH DUTCH GOVERNMENT NOT TO ALLOW ISLAMIC STATE WOMEN TO RETURN

“THE WOMEN WERE THE WORST”: 
YEZIDI WOMEN PLEAD WITH DUTCH GOVERNMENT NOT TO ALLOW ISLAMIC STATE WOMEN TO RETURN

“Thousands of Yezidi women are still trapped in refugee camps in northern Iraq. The Dutch government should help these people, not the IS supporters.”
Indeed. But that would be “Islamophobic,” and that’s the very worst thing one can be in Europe and America today.
“‘IS women helped fighters rape our women,’” translated from “‘IS-vrouwen hielpen strijders bij het verkrachten van onze vrouwen,’” by Lennard Swolfs, NOS, November 1, 2019:
Victims of the Islamic State in the Yezidi community are concerned about the possible return of IS women to the Netherlands. On Wednesday two women, who had traveled from the Netherlands to the IS area, reported to the Dutch embassy in Ankara with their children. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they want to return to the Netherlands.
A group of Dutch IS women and their children also want to force the Dutch State to collect them from the Kurdish prison camps in northern Syria. The summary proceedings are today.
“The women were the worst”
This leads to great fright and incomprehension among victims of IS in the Yezidi community. “The IS women were worse than the fighters,” says 21-year-old Parween Alhinto. “They beat the imprisoned women and helped the fighters rape them.”
Parween was detained for four months by IS in northern Iraq. She was in the hands of IS men, who raped her regularly. Her ten-year-old sister was sold into slavery and brought to Syria. “There they lived in a house with IS women. My sister told me afterwards that the women of the fighters were the worst.” Parween hopes that the IS supporters in Iraq will be tried and never released again.
Not only Parween, but the entire Yezidi community in the Netherlands is surprised at the discussion about bringing IS women and their children back to the Netherlands. “Thousands of Yezidi women are still trapped in refugee camps in northern Iraq,” says Dalal Ghanim (23). “The Dutch government should help these people, not the IS supporters.” Wahhab Hassoo (24): “There is no appropriate punishment for these people.” Dalal and Wahhab were already in the Netherlands when IS invaded in 2014, but have lost many family members….

SWITZERLAND: MUSLIM MIGRANT SLITS HIS SON’S THROAT FOR BEING GAY

SWITZERLAND: MUSLIM MIGRANT SLITS 
HIS SON’S THROAT FOR BEING GAY 
BY ROBERT SPENCER
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
The Qur’an contains numerous condemnations of homosexual activity: “And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, ‘Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds? Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people.’…And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals.” (Qur’an 7:80-84)
Muhammad specifies the punishment for this in a hadith: “The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, ‘Whoever you find doing the action of the people of Loot, execute the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.’” (Sunan Abu Dawud 4462)
Yet gay rights advocates still hold up signs reading “Queers Against Islamophobia,” and steadfastly refuse to say a word about Islam’s death penalty for homosexuality. It has long been established that in the hierarchy of politically correct causes, Islam trumps gay rights. When AFDI ran ads highlighting the mistreatment of gays in Islamic law, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors issued a resolution condemning not that mistreatment, but our ads. Gay advocates such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman attacked us for daring to call attention to the institutionalized mistreatment of gays under Islamic law. It was that, or risk not being invited to the best parties.
“He slits his son’s throat because he is gay,” translated from “Il tranche la gorge de son fils parce qu’il est gay,” 20 Minutes, October 24, 2019:
When Seran M.*’s father learned that his son was gay, he went crazy and attacked him with a knife. Six months after waking from his artificial coma, the 17-year-old testifies.
Seran M.* woke up one morning with a blade at his throat. His assailant was none other than his father. “Are you gay? Are you gay? Are you gay?,” he asked his son.
Energized by his instinct for survival, the teenager defended himself with all his might. He managed to escape through the balcony and found help from neighbors. The latter then alerted relief workers and the police. The 17-year-old was immediately taken to the Island Hospital in Bern. He had severe cuts in his neck and upper body. “Fortunately, my father missed the carotid artery by a short distance. But my trachea was affected and I had to be placed in an artificial coma,” explains the victim….
Seran M. is of Iraqi origin, his family is Muslim and he grew up in a rural area of ​​the canton of Bern. He always knew that his family would not accept his sexual orientation: “I have always hidden my homosexuality from my family”….

OBAMA APPOINTED JUDGE STRIKES DOWN “HHS” RULE PROTECTING HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS WHO DECLINE TO PERFORM ABORTIONS

MATT STAVER RADIO INTERVIEW:

Source:
https://www.spreaker.com/user/1061420…

This week, a federal district court judge in New York struck down conscience protections for health care providers whose sincere religious beliefs convict them not to participate in abortion, gender reassignment procedures, or dispense birth control.

“Health care is a basic right that should never be subject to political games,” said New York Attorney General Tish James, who brought the case, according to Politico. “Once again, the courts have blocked the Trump Administration from implementing a discriminatory rule that would only hurt Americans.”

The rule administered through the Department of Health and Human Services threatened to curtail federal funding for institutions that refused to allow providers to opt out of such procedures on grounds of their conscience.  Judge Paul Engelmayer agreed with state and local officials and groups like Planned Parenthood.

But defenders of free religious expression are furious.

“This particular ruling is absolutely outrageous,” said Liberty Counsel Chairman Mathew Staver.  “They’re not going to lose any federal funding as long as they simply do what they’re supposed to and that is to honor the constitutional protection to free exercise of religion.”

Listen to the full podcast to hear Staver explain that the Trump administration’s rule is not some radical departure from precedent but is actually restoring a long-held precedent reversed during the Obama administration.  He also shares how he thinks this issue will be resolved on appeal.



OBAMA APPOINTED JUDGE STRIKES DOWN “HHS” RULE PROTECTING HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS WHO DECLINE TO PERFORM ABORTIONS

BY HEATHER CLARK
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
MANHATTAN — A federal judge nominated to the bench by then-President Barack Obama has struck down a rule recently issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that sought to protect the conscience rights of medical professionals and others who have objections to abortion or physician-assisted suicide.
Judge Paul Engelmayer of the Southern District of New York concluded that the new rule too rigidly places states at jeopardy of losing federal funding for non-compliance with the conscience protections.
“The rule … newly conditions all HHS funding, regardless of source, on compliance with the Conscience Provisions. And, by adding the substantive conditions announced in the rule, the rule exposes a state to a heightened risk, in the middle of a funding period, that funds previously allocated will be withheld or terminated,” he wrote.
“A state that has organized its programs (e.g., its Medicaid program) in anticipation of a promised outlay of funds could find all its HHS funding streams cut off for its failure to adapt,” Engelmayer worried. “The state, however, had no way to know at the time it accepted such funds that HHS would later claim the right to close these spigots based on a breach of a Conscience Provision.”
He also determined that the government could not provide enough proof that the rule was necessary.
“HHS, in this litigation, admitted that only a tiny fraction of the complaints that its rule invoked as support were even relevant to the Conscience Provisions,” Engelmayer wrote. “HHS’s central factual claim of a ‘significant increase’ of complaints of Conscience Provision violations is flatly untrue. This alone makes the agency’s decision to promulgate the rule arbitrary and capricious.”
As previously reported, HHS issued its “Conscience Rights in Health Care” rule in May, which was to have taken effect on Nov. 22.
“This rule ensures that healthcare entities and professionals won’t be bullied out of the healthcare field because they decline to participate in actions that violate their conscience, including the taking of human life,” Office of Civil Rights (OCR) Director Roger Severino said in a statement. “Protecting conscience and religious freedom not only fosters greater diversity in healthcare, it’s the law.”
The updated rule provided clarification on existing federal conscience protection laws as passed by Congress, and required healthcare entities to keep records documenting compliance with such statutes, as well as to to submit certifications to HHS that they are indeed following the law.
OCR said that the rule was necessary as some remain confused about whether or not federal or state laws require individuals to participate in abortions or sterilizations, despite the existence of protections such as the Weldon Amendment and the Coats-Snowe Amendment.
“For instance, some advocacy organizations have filed lawsuits claiming that federal or state laws require private religious entities to perform abortions and sterilizations despite the existence of longstanding conscience and anti‐discrimination protections on this topic,” the department outlined in its rule explanation.
“A patient also sued a secular public hospital for accommodating doctors’ and nurses’ religious objections to abortion in alleged violation of a state law, Washington’s Reproductive Privacy Act,” it stated.
However, several lawsuits were soon filed against the new rule, including a legal challenge led by New York Attorney General Letitia James. More than a dozen other states joined the complaint, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Vermont, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado and Oregon. California filed its own lawsuit separately.
“Health care is a basic right that should never be subject to political games. Once again, the courts have blocked the Trump Administration from implementing a discriminatory rule that would only hurt Americans,” James said in a statement on Wednesday.
“The refusal of care rule was an unlawful attempt to allow health care providers to openly discriminate and refuse to provide necessary health care to patients based on providers’ ‘religious beliefs or moral objections,’” she added. “We will continue to use every tool at our disposal to protect access to health care and protect the rights of all individuals.”
However, religious liberties organizations, such as Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) expressed disappointment following Engelmayer’s ruling, noting that protecting the rights of all must include those with religious convictions — and it is people of faith who are rather being discriminated against.
“Medical professionals should never have to sacrifice the core convictions that led them to enter medicine, in order to serve in that very field. This HHS Conscience Rule clarifies and implements more than 30 laws protecting conscience rights in health care, including some protections that have been in effect for decades,” said legal counsel Denise Harle in a statement.
“The district court’s order vacating the rule strips the federal government of its ability to meaningfully interpret and apply these critical conscience protections ensuring that health care workers can live and work consistently with their consciences, without fear of discrimination,” she lamented.

TURKEY: ARMING GENOCIDE OF CHRISTIANS IN NIGERIA? ERDOGAN’S SUPPORT FOR JIHADIS APPEARS TO GO FAR BEYOND ISIS

TURKEY: ARMING GENOCIDE OF CHRISTIANS IN NIGERIA? ERDOGAN’S SUPPORT FOR JIHADIS APPEARS TO GO FAR BEYOND ISIS
BY RAYMOND IBRAHIM
SEE: https://cms.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2019/11/turkey-arming-genocide-christians-nigeria-raymond-ibrahimrepublished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
This article was first published by the Gatestone Institute. Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
Concerning Turkey’s increasingly suspect role in supporting jihadis — most recently, ISIS’s slain leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was found hiding in Syria’s “last refuge” for jihadi rebels, just three miles from Turkey’s border — one of the least mentioned is Turkey’s apparent alliance with the “other” ISIS, that in Nigeria, Boko Haram.
During a recent episode of bi’l waraqa wa’l qalam (“With Paper and Pen”), an Egyptian news program that airs on TenTV, its host, Nasha’t al-Deyhi, said:
Leaked information confirms that Turkey is a terrorist state; it supports terrorists — including with weapons. It supports terrorists with weapons. This time, however, not in Syria … Today’s leak confirms without doubt that Erdogan, his state, his government, and his party are transferring weapons from Turkey to — this is a shock, to where you may ask — to Nigeria; and to whom? — to the Boko Haram organization.
He then played an intercepted audio of what he said were Mustafa Varank (currently Turkey’s Minister of Industry and Technology) and Mehmet Karatas (a manager at the partly state-owned Turkish Airlines).
The gist of their brief conversation in Turkish, according to the Arabic transcript, is that weapons were being transferred from Turkey to Nigeria — and that there was a concern that the weapons might kill not just Christians but Muslims.
(This audio clip would seem to be the same leaked recording that was first reported by international media outlets in 2014. Varank served as Senior Advisor to Recep Tayyip Erdogan between 2011 and 2018.)
According to al-Deyhi, the recording is proof positive that Turkey is the one supplying Boko Haram with its weapons — including sophisticated weapons — the source of which has long puzzled international observers. He also offered to send the audio with translations to the Nigerian government, and apparently anyone else interested.
Boko Haram is an Islamist terrorist organization centered in Nigeria and spreading throughout west Africa. It has long engaged in the sorts of atrocities that ISIS is known for — mass slaughterchurch bombingskidnapping, rape, forced conversion —  years before ISIS was even founded. As Nigeria is roughly half Christian and half Muslim, Boko Haram’s primary target has been Christians. Boko Haram and other Muslims — particularly the Fulani tribesmen, whose sophisticated armaments have also puzzled Western observers — have been slaughtering Christians to the point of genocide.
As for the issue of distinguishing between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria, Islamic law makes clear that Muslims, when prosecuting the jihad, should be careful not to kill fellow Muslims. For instance, according to a 2012 report, after Boko Haram stormed a college in Nigeria, they “separated the Christian students from the Muslim students, addressed each victim by name, questioned them, and then proceeded to shoot them or slit their throat,” killing up to 30 Christians.
Some Nigerian activists have already acted on this information by bringing it to the attention of U.S. lawmakers. According to an October 11, 2019 Nigerian news report by Steve Oko:
A US-based lawyer and rights activist, Emmanuel Ogebe, has filed a petition to the United States of America over alleged arms supply to Boko Haram terrorist organization by Turkey.
According to Ogebe, President Erdogan [sic] of Turkey is one of those supplying Boko Haram with arms.
In a petition to the US Congress wired via a US Congressman [sic], Chris Smith, the lawyer alleged that a Turkish aircraft was directed to airlift arms to Nigeria for Boko Haram.
According to the petition made available to Wawa News Global, discussions between the airline manager and government officials were intercepted by Egyptian Intelligence.
In his letter to Congressman Smith, Ogebe writes:
An Egyptian TV program has again drawn attention to a concern I raised in testifying before your committee of evidence that Turkish Airlines surreptitiously flies armament into Nigeria. As a business operating in the US, I once again urge for proper scrutiny, investigation and sanctions as necessary. As we approach the sixth anniversary of the FTO [foreign terrorist organization] designation of Boko Haram, it is important that those sanctions be enforced especially as Turkey’s current onslaught on the Kurds could potentially recalibrate ISIS which already has a West African phalanx in Nigeria.
Erdogan has turned “Turkey into a safe haven for Hamas terrorists and a financial center for funneling money to subsidize terror attacks,” Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, recently said; “While he [Erdogan] was busy murdering those who have helped keep the world safe from the threat of ISIS, he allowed ISIS members to break out of prison and subject the world to future attacks.”
Worse, it appears that Erdogan’s sponsorship of terrorism may not be limited to neighboring Middle Eastern nations; it appears to have reached deep into Africa. A serious investigation with possible sanctions is in order.

NATIONAL RADIO HOST DEMONSTRATES SOUTHERN BAPTIST ALBERT MOHLER IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE~HIS POSITIONS ARE FROM POLITICS RATHER THAN CONVICTION
BY PULPIT & PEN
Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Nationally syndicated radio host and conservative Christian pundit, Janet Mefferd, used her time on America’s airwaves yesterday to discuss Albert Mohler’s nomination for the presidency of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Going to great pains through the use of audio clips (provided by Jon Harris at Conversations that Matter), Mefferd revealed three of Mohler’s professors at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary espousing Critical Race Theory and the most extreme progressive philosophies.
Then Mefferd played audio from Albert Mohler, saying at the 2019 Shepherd’s Conference that who he “platforms” speaks for where he stands on this issue. Mefferd followed up by demonstrating that Mohler platforms some of the most radical progressives in evangelicalism.
Mefferd demonstrated in the episode that on top of platforming extremist leftists, he has also been quiet regarding the leftism of Russell Moore, the complete take-over of leftists at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, the hiring of Karen Swallow Prior, and silence while the SBC passed Resolution 9 in favor of Critical Race Theory.
However, the smoking gun evidence provided by Mefferd against Mohler was audio clips from interviews conducted in 1997 with key leaders in the SBC during the tail-end of the Conservative Resurgence who claim that Mohler is a convinced progressive and liberal and did not change his views (or appear to) until it was clear that his side would lose the denominational battle.
These SBC leaders – on the other side of the progressive-conservative aisle – explicitly said that Mohler’s newly-found conservative positions were entirely political AND even said that “if the wind shifted” Mohler would turn back into a liberal at a moment’s notice.
Mohler himself, as the press records and these men recall, led a protest movement at SBTS in his earliest days to fight for the ordination of women.
The episode is absolutely devastating for anyone trying to argue that Mohler is a tried-and-true conservative and has legitimate conservative convictions. Mohler is a political beast, and he serves as the weather cock for the SBC. Whichever direction the wind is blowing, that man will lead.

KENTUCKY SUPREME COURT RULES IN FAVOR OF PRINT SHOP OWNER WHO REFUSED TO PRINT MESSAGES VIOLATING HIS BELIEFS 
(Friday Church News Notes, November 8, 2019, www.wayoflife.org [email protected], 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Supreme Court Rules in Favor, Daily Wire, Oct. 31, 2019: “On Thursday, the Kentucky Supreme Court issued a unanimous 6-0 ruling in favor of a Lexington-based print shop owner who refused to print messages that violated his deeply held religious beliefs. The case dates back to 2012, when the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization (GLSO) filed a complaint with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission against print shop owner Blaine Adamson, who, citing his Christian beliefs, declined a request to print shirts promoting the Lexington Gay Pride Festival. Adamson reportedly declined politely and referred the organization to another printer who was willing to print the shirts. The GLSO complained that Adamson was discriminating against LGBT customers by refusing to promote the event. In 2014, the commission ruled that Adamson must print messages conflicting with his religious convictions. The court system subsequently ruled repeatedly against the commission’s order, until the case eventually made its way to the state’s highest court. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), who helped represent Adamson in the case, maintained that the business owner has demonstrated that he ‘serves all people, including LGBT customers,’ as he did when his shop, Hands On Originals, printed promotional materials for an openly lesbian singer who performed at the Lexington’s 2012 Pride festival. Adamson also has taken a consistent stand on the issue of free speech, ADF underscored, refusing to print other messages that likewise conflict with his Christian beliefs, including shirts advertising a strip club, shirts containing violent messages, and ‘pens promoting a sexually explicit video.’ ... The ruling by Kentucky’s highest court, ADF argues in the release, ‘highlights why the U.S. Supreme Court should take up the important First Amendment issue at the heart of the case and decide whether governments may force creative professionals who serve everyone to print messages or create art that violates their beliefs.’”
YOUNG PEOPLE WHO LEAVE CHURCH NO LONGER RETURNING LATER 
(Friday Church News Notes, November 8, 2019, www.wayoflife.org [email protected], 866-295-4143) - The following research is confirmed by the many Southern Baptist and fundamental Baptist churches that are populated predominately by elderly people. The young people are gone. This is excerpted from ‘Young People Who Leave Church,’ Christian Post, Oct. 23, 2019: “While pastors have long banked on social science showing that young people who leave church generally return when they're older, a recent analysis of that trend suggests it might be over. In his analysis of data from the General Social Survey of five-year windows in which individuals were born spanning from 1965 to 1984 and published by the Barna Group, Ryan Burge, an assistant professor of political science at Eastern Illinois University and pastor of First Baptist Church of Mt. Vernon, Illinois, shows that younger generations raised in the church aren’t typically returning to church when compared with members of the ‘Baby boomer’ generation born between 1945 and 1964. In Burge’s analysis of the boomer generation, four different five-year cohorts reflected the ‘trademark hump’ supported by traditional social science ‘when each birth cohort moves into the 36–45 age range. That’s exactly what the life cycle effect would predict: People settle down, they have kids, and they return to church.’ When he examined data for the younger cohorts 1965-1969, 1975-1979 and 1980-1984, the data show a fading of the life cycle effect. While the hump is still there in the cohort measured from 1965-1969, a shift in the life cycle effect begins to emerge by around 1970. ‘That trend line is completely flat—those people didn’t return to church when they moved into their 30s. You can see the beginnings of a hump among those born between 1975 and 1979, but in the next birth cohort the hump is actually inverted. That trademark return to church—which pastors and church leaders have relied on for decades—might be fading,’ Burge said. For anyone concerned with church growth, Burge says ‘this should sound an alarm.’” CONCLUDING NOTE FROM BROTHER CLOUD: Of course it should “sound an alarm,” but the young people shouldn’t be leaving churches in the first place, and we do not believe this is a lost battle by any means. The book Keeping the Kids: How to Keep the Kids from Falling Prey to the World, is filled with practical biblical help for homes and churches on this important subject. It is available as a free eBook from www.wayoflife.org.

CHINA’S STATE-SANCTIONED ORGAN HARVESTING 
(Friday Church News Notes, November 8, 2019, www.wayoflife.org [email protected], 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Survivors and Victims,” Fox News, Oct. 26, 2019: “[Forced organ harvesting is] the stuff of nightmares. And it has been buried from public view, hard to prove, and shrouded beneath the cloak of silence for almost two decades. ... After 12 months of independent assessment of all available evidence, the seven-person China Tribunal panel – which was initiated by the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China (ETAC), an international human rights charity--delivered its final findings in June. The tribunal, chaired by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC who led the prosecution of Slobodan Milosevic in the International Criminal Trial for the former Yugoslavia, stated with ‘certainty’ that ‘in China, forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience has been practiced for a substantial period of time.’ ‘Forced organ harvesting has been committed for years, and Falun Gong practitioners have been one--and probably the main--source of organ supply,’ the report concluded, pointing to the growing transplant industry already worth more than $1 billion. The report underscored that there were ‘extraordinarily short waiting times for organs to be available for transplantation,’ and numerous websites advertised hearts, lungs, and kidneys for sale--suggesting an on-demand industry. The Tribunal concluded that the commission of Crimes Against Humanity against Falun Gong and Uighurs had been committed. Witness testimonies provided to the tribunal, and interviewed by Fox News, paint the picture of an unfathomably callous trade often performed when the victims are still alive. ... Moreover, the China Organ Harvest Research Center (COHRC), which also testified before the China Tribunal, published its own incriminating report in July after years of underground research and analysis, deducing that the ‘on-demand killing of prisoners of conscience is driven by the state, run on an industrial scale and carried out by both military and civilian institutions.’ ... According to the COHRC, there are mountains of money to be made. Data from 2007 shows that hospitals charged more than $65,000 for a kidney transplant, $130,000 for liver, and more than $150,000 for lung or heart. Desperate patients might make a high-price ‘donation’ for a new organ at top-speed. The practice is alleged to have started in the 90s on a small-scale, but kicked into high gear around 2000 and focused on the Falun Gong. It was initially characterized as targeting the forcible removing of organs of prisoners on death row.”

A SOUTHERN BAPTIST SEMINARY HIRES “GAY AFFIRMING FEMINIST” WHO SAYS ABORTION ISN’T MURDER 
(Friday Church News Notes, November 8, 2019, www.wayoflife.org [email protected], 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from Pulpit & Pen, Oct. 25, 2019: “Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forrest, a seminary belonging to the Southern Baptist Convention, just hired a radical leftist and gay-affirming feminist to its faculty. Karen Swallow Prior’s days at Liberty University were limited after promoting her pro-gay book on Liberty’s campus only months ago and her increasingly brazen liberal stances becoming more apparent since Pulpit & Penbegan to report on her shocking liberalism since 2015. Our first post on this exceedingly wicked woman aged exceedingly well, and over the years, verified on every point beyond a question of a doubt. That article, Gay Affirming Research Fellow at ERLC, Shocking Liberalism, laid out how Prior repeatedly uses affirming language toward the LGBTQ ... attended pro-LGBTQ fundraisers, supported pro-LGBTQ ad campaigns, and back-peddled and soft-handed abortion while pretending to have been a pro-life advocate (various claims about her past activism cannot be substantiated). Radical animal rights activists saw Prior as an ‘ally and resource contributor’ to ‘invade right-wing evangelical institutions with an animal-first agenda’ as far back as 2007. Prior said in Christianity Today that abortion is not murder and defended abortionists from the accusation of being ‘murderers.’ Prior said that calling abortion murder is unchristlike. ... Prior has been hired by Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, which has reverted to a pre-1979 liberalism every bit as progressive as it was prior to the Conservative Resurgence.”
