BREAKING: Hamas releases 25 hostages amid Israeli cease-fire deal

Hamas releases 25 hostages: 13 Israelis and 12 Thai nationals. Hamas has agreed to release the first 13 hostages it took during the October 7 attack on Israel. Israel will in turn release Palestinian prisoners it has been holding. This is the first of several exchanges set to happen during a 4-day cease-fire. Hamas kidnapped more than 200 men, women, and children during the initial attack.

Biden regime threatens Israel: may not support further defensive actions in Gaza

Notice that the Biden regime doesn’t say anything to Hamas about its use of civilians as human shields and its intentional actions to put civilians in harm’s way so that it can use civilian casualties for propaganda purposes. The criminal regime in Washington is doing all it can to keep Hamas alive.

“Biden Admin warns it might not support next phase of Israel’s war,” JNS, November 22, 2023 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Israel must have a plan to protect the civilians in southern Gaza before proceeding with the war, says U.S.National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby.

The White House says it won’t support Israel’s plan to expand its operations into the south of the Gaza Strip unless it shows it will protect the Palestinian civilians there.

In a Tuesday press call, US National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby said the United States won’t support Israel “moving forward with operations in the south absent a clearly articulated plan for how they’re going to protect the lives of the hundreds of thousands of people” there.

“There’s an obligation for them to factor that into their planning,” Kirby said.

The NSC spokesman noted that the population in the south of the terror-run enclave has swelled as Israel ordered the northern population to flee southwards. It’s “even more incumbent” on Israel to “protect those civilians who moved at their urging,” said Kirby….

NYC: Muslims enraged, call judge ‘racist’ for giving Muslim who brutally beat Jewish man seven years prison

In the world Mahmoud Musa’s angry supporters come from, Musa should have been congratulated, not punished.

“NYC Palestinian man sentenced in brutal antisemitic beating before judge ejects angry supporters from court,” by Michael Ruiz, Fox News, November 23, 2023:

NEW YORK – A large group that turned out to support a Palestinian-American man convicted of taking part in a hate crime beating of a Jewish man in a Times Square protest was ejected from a Manhattan courthouse Tuesday after shouting at the judge during his sentencing.

Mahmoud Musa was among a group of men who brutally beat Joseph Borgen after spotting him in public wearing a yarmulke in 2021. They set out that morning “to attack Jewish people,” according to prosecutors, and they found Borgen, who was headed to a pro-Israel rally.

They pummeled him to the floor, kicked him while he was down, and doused him with pepper spray.

“I felt a liquid being poured on my face, and at first I thought I was getting urinated on, but it turned out I was getting maced and pepper sprayed,” Borgen told the New York Post shortly after the 2021 attack. “My face was on fire. That pain was worse than the concussion and all this other stuff that followed.”

Video of the attack also showed his assailants berating him with antisemitic slurs as they left him with a concussion and needing a neck brace.

“If the cops did not come, if they did not save my life, I would have died,” Borgen said during his victim impact statement….

About 30 minutes into the hearing, Musa’s supporters arrived. His defense wanted a minimum, of three and a half years, but prosecutors had asked for a six-year sentence.

After Judge Felicia Mennin told Musa he would be spending seven years behind bars, his side of the crowd erupted, calling it “unfair.”

The Post reported that journalists in the back of the courtroom overheard them calling Judge Mennin a “racist” for the sentence, which is less than half of the maximum punishment of 15 years.

Court officers removed them from the building. It was another 20 minutes before the courthouse was cleared and Borgen’s supporters and members of the media were told they could safely head outside….

Yazidi woman was raped regularly while kept as a slave by Islamic State jihadis for four years


Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave girls: “The believers must win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or the captives whom their right hands possess, for in their case they are free from blame.” (Qur’an 23:1-6)

The rape of captive women is also sanctioned in Islamic tradition:

Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah be pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women, and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born. (Sahih Muslim 3371)

It is also in Islamic law: “When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.” (Umdat al-Salik O9.13)

The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 that “we are in the era of jihad,” and that meant Muslims would take slaves. In a subsequent interview he elaborated:

Jihad is only between Muslims and infidels. Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars—there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on.

When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess” [Koran 4:24]. This is a verse from the Qur’an which is still in force and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point—there is no disagreement from any of them. […] When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market choose the woman I like, and purchase her.

Around the same time, on May 25, 2011, a female Kuwaiti politician, Salwa al-Mutairi, also spoke out in favor of the Islamic practice of sexual slavery of non-Muslim women, emphasizing that the practice accorded with Islamic law and the parameters of Islamic morality.

A merchant told me that he would like to have a sex slave. He said he would not be negligent with her, and that Islam permitted this sort of thing. He was speaking the truth. I brought up [this man’s] situation to the muftis in Mecca. I told them that I had a question, since they were men who specialized in what was halal, and what was good, and who loved women. I said, “What is the law of sex slaves?”

The mufti said, “With the law of sex slaves, there must be a Muslim nation at war with a Christian nation, or a nation which is not of the religion, not of the religion of Islam. And there must be prisoners of war.”

“Is this forbidden by Islam?” I asked.

“Absolutely not. Sex slaves are not forbidden by Islam. On the contrary, sex slaves are under a different law than the free woman. The free woman must be completely covered except for her face and hands. But the sex slave can be naked from the waist up. She differs a lot from the free woman. While the free woman requires a marriage contract, the sex slave does not—she only needs to be purchased by her husband, and that’s it. Therefore the sex slave is different than the free woman.”

In January 2016, a female al-Azhar professor stated that Allah allowed Muslims to rape non-Muslim women in order to humiliate them.

“FIGHT FOR JUSTICE I was raped by Brit ISIS ‘Beatle’ Aine Davis and sold 15 times as sex slave – jihadi monster must face trial in the UK,” by Imogen Braddick and Alan Duncan, The Sun, November 18, 2023:

A BRAVE Yazidi woman claims she was raped by a suspected British ISIS “Beatle” while she was kept as a slave by jihadi monsters in Syria for four years.

Lina – whose name has been changed by The Sun to protect her identity – was held at an ISIS brothel in Raqqa for six months where she says she was raped at least 10 times by London-born Aine Davis.

Davis – who was jailed this week for eight years on terrorism charges – is linked to the ISIS death squad dubbed The Beatles due to their British accents, with Davis suspected of being “Paul”….

In 2014, ISIS militants launched a brutal attack on the Yazidi people – a religious and ethnic minority in northern Iraq….

Some women were handed out as gifts to fighters who took part in the siege, while other women were sold for $50, and children for $35.

Thousands of Yazidis who were kidnapped and kept as slaves by ISIS beasts remain missing, mass graves remain unexhumed, and Iraq has never prosecuted ISIS members for their crimes….

Muslim United Airlines pilot and Hamas-linked CAIR official given paid vacation for praising Hamas

He was “removed from service with pay,” which essentially is rewarding his behavior.

“United Airlines removes pilot Ibrahim Mossallam from service amid anti-Semitic claims after he posted messages supporting terror group Hamas’ vile slaughter of 1,200 Israelis hours after the Oct 7 invasion, calling it ‘resistance by brave people,'” by Paul Farrell, Daily Mail, November 21, 2023:

A United Airlines pilot has been ‘removed from service with pay’ after posting dozens of messages on Facebook expressing support for Hamas in the aftermath of the terror group’s barbaric assault on Israel that killed 1,200 people on October 7.

United pilot Ibrahim R. Mossallam described the attack on civilians across southern Israel as ‘resistance by brave people who have endured decades of occupation, oppression, humiliation, apartheid, and straight-up murder.’

‘For all my friends here in FB land with Questions/Thoughts/Assumptions/Critique about what’s transpiring in Palestine, currently in response to the Zionist occupation, please work on expanding your media literacy,’ he added.

Mossallam said that the US media is ‘heavily politicized and skewed to show a non-occupying narrative of Palestine.’

The disgraced pilot also argued that the attack on Israel was ‘not provoked’ but rather was a ‘response to years of attacks by the Zionist regime.’

On Tuesday, United told that Mossallam was taken out of service with pay as an investigation is carried out. The carrier said that Mossallam was only removed from service on November 20, the same day that his social media posts became public knowledge.

In addition to his flying career, Mossallam is also the board vice president for the New York chapter of the Council on American-Israel Relations….

Leftists and Antisemites Are Discovering That Islam Is Just the Thing for Them

Who would have guessed that the next trendy, chic thing among America’s addled and miseducated youth would be Islam?

It was perhaps inevitable that young secular Westerners, their self-centered lives achingly meaningless, would gravitate to the only force that seems to present an alternative to the culture of materialism, hedonism, and increasing madness in which they’ve been marinating since birth. But many of these people are likely to wake up in the morning with a massive buyer’s remorse headache.

First, there was the Osama bin Laden craze on TikTok. Hordes of witless millennials suddenly discovered the terror titan’s 2002 letter to America and professed to find wisdom in its whiny grievance-mongering and Jew-hatred. But that was just the beginning. Now the same disaffected, diseducated, and rationality-challenged millennials are embracing not just Osama, but the whole hog, or if you prefer, the whole halal enchilada, and converting to Islam.

High-profile “influencers” are driving much of this trend. First, there was former kickboxer and accused sex trafficker Andrew Tate, who converted to Islam precisely because it sanctifies brute force and intolerance, qualities that he confuses with strength and sees lacking in the woke, relativistic half-men and men who think they’re women of the contemporary left. Following Tate into the Religion of Peace was the “Internet personality” Sneako, who is now doing his part to bring into the fold of Muhammad the legions of antisemites who have revealed themselves since Hamas’ Oct. 7 jihad massacre in Israel.

 On Thursday, the venomously anti-Israel propagandist Jackson Hinkle, who has over two million followers on X, tweeted (X’d?) a video in which Sneako presents him with a biography of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam. Hinkle wrote: “Thanks @sneako for gifting me the biography of the Prophet Muhammad. It’s already a very eye-opening read.”

It is indeed, although Sneako is unlikely to have given Hinkle a Muhammad biography that will enlighten the anti-Israel advocate about Muhammad’s violence, cruelty, Jew-hatred, misogyny, and the like. Or maybe he did, as it could be that they both regard all those aspects of the Islamic prophet’s life (as it is depicted in early Islamic texts) as positives. 

Either way, if Hinkle decides to convert to Islam, he could meet up with some interesting people in the new converts class at his local mosque. The UK’s Daily Mail reported Sunday that hatred of Israel and support for Hamas, so prevalent among leftists since Oct. 7, is now leading many millennials to embrace Islam, which they see as the “ultimate rebellion against the West.”

Some of these people should have looked before they leaped. One is a woman named Alex, who describes herself as a “leftist queer gremlin.” This particular gremlin has been going to pro-Hamas demonstrations and recently bought a Qur’an, made a formal conversion to Islam, and started wearing a hijab. 

But has Alex noticed that the population of leftist queer gremlins in Gaza is vanishingly small? Is Alex aware of what happens to leftist queer gremlins in the Islamic land she so admires? Almost certainly not. But if she continues with her little rebellion against the West, she is liable to find out, and will likely be thinking as her tormenters close in that maybe the much-maligned West wasn’t so bad after all.

Related: Pope's New Book Settles It: Islam Is a Religion of Peace After All!

Inspiring Alex to embark upon this path was another new Muslim, Megan Rice, yet another TikTok “influencer.” Rice explained in a recent video that Palestinian defiance of Israel led her to Islam: “It just seems that Palestinians have this ironclad faith even in the face of losing quite literally everything.” 

It will become abundantly clear to the world, once the ceasefire ends, that the Palestinians have by no means lost everything and have plenty of rockets and other weapons on hand, but Rice is unlikely to look back. The Mail notes that “she founded the World Religion Book Club where she conducts live readings of the Quran. The online community now boasts 13,000 members.”

It is unlikely in the extreme that Megan Rice or any of these other new Western converts to Islam have the faintest idea of what their new religion teaches. They just like the idea of rebelling against The Man, who in their thoroughly propagandized minds is a white Christian; they haven’t noticed that the people who have the real power today are those who share their hatred of Israel and are determined to destroy and are happy to see this Islam craze spreading among young people because it furthers their larger goal of destroying the West in order to pave the way for socialist internationalism.

By the time these young dupes wake up to how they’re being manipulated, it is likely to be far too late. But others in the West should realize how dangerous this blend of hatred of Jews, hatred of America, and embrace of Islam really is, and begin to formulate ways to counter the appeal of the noxious mix.

Qatar: 13 Women And Children To Be Released Friday

Israel has confirmed that it has received the names of the hostages that are set to be a part of a hostage swap with the terrorist group, Hamas. The hostages, whose names have not been released to the public, will be freed Friday at 9 AM ET.

A statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said “liaison officers sent messages to all the families whose loved ones appear on the list, as well as to all the families of the abductees.”

Additionally, on Thursday, Qatar’s Foreign Ministry held a press conference where they explained the details of the deal, which was mediated by Qatar and the United States.

Israel will receive 50 female and children hostages held by Hamas. In exchange, Hamas is requiring that Israel release 150 prisoners.

The majority of the prisoners being held by Israel are between 17 and 18 years old. Many of these prisoners are being held in Israel on attempted murder charges.

In addition, Israel must partake in a 4-5-day ceasefire and allow the influx of 300 aid trucks containing fuel and humanitarian supplies to enter Gaza each day of the pause.

The truce begins at 12:00 AM ET. At that time, a ceasefire between the two parties will go into place. The first 13 hostages will be released eight hours later at 9:00 AM ET.

Children who are released who are under 12 years old will meet their families as soon as they get to Israel at the crossing point. Those over 12-years-old will meet their loved ones at a hospital in Israel.

The 13 hostages will enter Israel at three different locations.

Qatar announced that those who are held hostage with other members of their family will be released in the same batch as their loved ones.
