COVID Vaccine Skepticism Censored After Virality Project Complained to Social Media

A Stanford University group helped the United States government censor COVID-19 dissidents, then they lied about it. The Twitter files published by journalist Matt Taibbi in March revealed the Stanford’s Internet Observatory initiative, also known as the Virality Project, pushed platforms to treat user concerns about vaccine mandates as disinformation and to consider stories of true vaccine side effects to be actionable content on social media.

Pro-Hamas Rallies Have Twice Targeted LA Holocaust Museums

There’s a reason this keeps happening.

When pro-Hamas supporters rioted outside the Museum of Tolerance for screening footage of Hamas atrocities on the anniversary of Kristallnacht, Mayor Karen Bass and the media, including most shamefully the JTA, described it as clashes between both sides and denounced “violence”.

Now some of the groups behind that protest, which have openly defended Hamas, decided to head to the site of another local Holocaust museum, the Los Angeles Holocaust Museum in Pan Pacific Park for their pro terrorist hate rally.

There’s a reason this keeps happening. And there’s a reason that no one actually condemns it.

KKK rallies outside black churches would lead to an immediate response. Supporters of murdering Jews protesting outside Holocaust museums hardly even rate a mention.

This comes at a time when the DSA and other leftists, and their members, like this Bernie Sanders supporter, feel increasingly emboldened to attack Jews in Los Angeles.

A home invasion suspect reportedly shouted “Free Palestine!” and threatened to kill a Jewish family in Studio City Wednesday morning.

According to various local reports, a man broke into a home on the 3000 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard sometime around 5 a.m. The suspect, who was armed with a kitchen knife, allegedly threatened to kill the family “because you are Jewish… Israel kills people,” per KTLA. The homeowner is reportedly from Israel. All the doors to the house are also reportedly adorned with mezuzot.

The family, which according to KTLA consisted of two adults (one of whom is nine months pregnant) and four children, hid in a safe room until the father came out and pushed the man into the backyard, where the suspect was subsequently arrested.

The suspect can be seen in video footage shouting, “Free Palestine” repeatedly and “brown lives matter” as he was being taken into a police vehicle.

Then we had this in Brentwood.

This is the work of a leftist movement that learned in 2020 that it could terrorize people with impunity. There’s no political or criminal accountability and little in the way of critical coverage. Behavior like this has become legitimized. And it won’t end here.

After Biden’s Pullout, Al Qaeda Built a Path From Afghanistan to Europe

Afghan gun battles are now happening on the border of the EU.

After Biden’s withdrawal, the fighting ended in Afghanistan and moved into Europe.

Even before the Taliban takeover, massive traffic of migrants and drugs flowed over the ‘Balkan Route’ that took Afghans into Iran, Turkey, and then Eastern Europe. One of the biggest holes in Europe’s armor was the former Yugoslavia, illegally invaded and partitioned by the Clinton administration, with a large Muslim population in Bosnia and heavy criminal organizations across the former republic that tie together the Russian mob, local gangs, Islamic terrorists, and Turkish, Pakistani and Afghan operations moving weapons and drugs.

All of this comes together at the border between Serbia and Yugoslavia. Parts of Serbia’s border areas have become no-go zones: territories occupied by Muslim gangs. Serbian police raids on “migrants” now look like Israeli military operations with armored vehicles and troops. These raids have rounded up thousands of migrants along with automatic rifles and bombs.

Ever since Hungary began fortifying its border, the Muslim gangs had to work harder to penetrate it in order to continue moving their cargo into the rest of Europe. Faced with a more secure border, the smuggling was taken over by more violent groups. Including Al Qaeda.

Much as drug cartels followed Latin American migrants to America, the Afghan migrants traveling through Iran and Turkey to Eastern Europe were followed by Afghan Jihadis.

In Serbia’s border regions, competition between Afghan smuggling gangs broke out into open warfare with the groups using heavy weaponry against each other. Some of those weapons may have been left behind by the Biden administration when it fled Afghanistan. These gun battles are not just happening in deserted villages or near border fences, but in more populated areas.

The Serbian city of Subotica, with a population of nearly 100,000, has become ground zero for the migrant invasion. In September, Afghan and Moroccan Muslim gangs shot at each other in the parking lot of the multinational Lidl supermarket chain in a suburb of the city. The shooting spree in the crowded parking lot filled with families killed a 16-year-old girl.

The Afghan gangs that prevail in the gun battles that have become common on the route are the ones with the weapons and the training and are likely to be linked to the Haqqani Network.

When the Taliban took Kabul, it was actually the Haqqani Network which unlike most of the Taliban had built up professional units that resembled their NATO opposite numbers. The Haqqani Network had carried out some of the most devastating attacks against American forces in Afghanistan. The Haqqanis gained these capabilities through their close ties to Al Qaeda.

The Al Qaeda ties brought Arab Muslim money and training to the Afghan Jihadis. After the fall of Kabul, it was the Haqqanis who took over and decided who was allowed to reach the airport. The Biden administration had turned over passenger lists to the Al Qaeda group. After being put in charge of security in Kabul, Haqqani figures control security for the new Taliban regime.

Unlike the old Taliban leadership, which is reclusive and isolationist, the Haqqanis, true to their Al Qaeda links, have been focused on building up an international network. The Biden administration has decided that the Haqqanis, despite Al Qaeda, are moderates because they are more open to supporting education for girls and are willing to talk to the United States. But that is what makes the Haqqanis more dangerous because they are interested in the world.

The Haqqani interest appears to have taken the Al Qaeda linked Jihadis all the way to Europe.

György Bakondi, Hungary’s national security adviser, has warned that the Haqqanis won the gun battles and are now in charge of the smuggling route into the European Union.

“Smuggling gangs originating from Afghanistan in Serbia have family ties to the Taliban government in Afghanistan and the Haqqani network, which is a terrorist organization,” he said. “The Taliban secret services are now directly controlling the activities of these Afghan-origin smuggling groups.”

The Hungarian authorities have shown videos of aggressive efforts by Afghan migrants to invade their country. Migrants no longer just try to get across the border, they  “are organized into military-style formations of 20 and armed with marbles, slingshots, and sticks to fight back against Hungarian border guards sent to stop them.” The Afghan smugglers carry assault rifles and open fire, into the air or at border patrol officers, to signal that a crossing is underway.

According to Bakondi, the smugglers have “family ties” to the Haqqanis. The Haqqanis are a large family and they also have extended clan connections. Using those family ties to gain control of the smuggling route into Europe would give them a financial lifeline outside of Afghanistan, whose main current source of income is foreign aid run out of Kabul-based NGOs that are taxed by the Haqqanis, and the ability to move Jihadis into Europe for future attacks.

The United States and European NATO members may have hoped to leave Afghanistan behind, but Afghanistan instead followed NATO. As Islamic terrorists always do. When France left North Africa, an army of North African immigrants followed and transformed France into a terror hub. Pakistanis did the same thing to the United Kingdom and Turks and Kurds to Germany.

America imported vast numbers of Afghan refugees and those we didn’t airlift are migrating to Europe. The Haqqani Network decided who would get on Biden’s evacuation planes. Now it’s deciding who gets to enter Europe. While the Haqqanis are cashing in, they’re also almost certainly bringing their own “family” members to Europe to set up local criminal operations.

The Taliban’s alleged ban on opium production was widely reported by the media, less widely reported was that the Taliban have switched from opium to meth. Despite the Taliban ban, opium production actually rose by a third, and the Taliban are cashing in on an artificial shortage that their regime temporarily created, but the real story is that Afghanistan has become the fastest-growing source of meth in the world. And the Islamists are using Iran as a model.

The Afghan smuggling route is also the transit point for moving meth from Iran to Europe. By controlling the route, the Haqqanis can potentially control both the heroin and the meth market. Human smuggling allows them to also bring in their people so that they control not only the transit of drugs but also the sale and distribution of them across Europe. Jihadis have already used access to the European criminal class to convert its members to Islam and recruit them.

While NATO may have left behind its ‘nation building’ operation to win ‘hearts and minds’ in Europe, the Jihadis it was fighting have followed NATO to Europe to build their own nation, their ‘ummah’, in the heart of the infidel enemy. And they’re winning ‘hearts and minds’ left and right.

Afghanistan is not just a place, it’s where the Afghans are. The Taliban and Al Qaeda were not left behind in the dust of Kabul, they are making the long trek into Europe. The Hungarians have tried to build a wall, but much as the Chinese learned during the Mongolian invasions or the Israelis learned on Oct 7, it’s not enough to build a wall, you have to vigilantly defend it. And given enough time, the barbarians will find a way around it, under it, over it, or through it.

Walls alone do not stop an invasion. Eventually you will have to fight and defeat the invaders.

California: Muslim cleric says Jews are ‘the enemies of mankind’

The Jews in the Qur’an are called the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“California imam Dr. Sayed Moustafa al-Qazwini: The Jews Killed Their Prophets, Have a Sense of Entitlement, Are Liars; The Enemies of Gaza Are the Enemies of Mankind, Humanity,” MEMRI, November 17, 2023:

California imam Dr. Sayed Moustafa al-Qazwini said in a November 17, 2023, Friday sermon streamed at the Islamic Education Center of Orange County on YouTube on November 17, 2023, that the Jews have killed their prophets, have a sense of entitlement, and are liars. He said that Allah had forewarned the Jews against lying and fabricating, but the Jews justified targeting hospitals in Gaza, by claiming these are centers of Hamas, and then leading a disinformation campaign of lies and fabrications for which they can’t find proof. He prayed that Allah grant victory to the people of Gaza against its enemies, and he added that the enemies of Gaza are the enemies of Mankind and the enemies of humanity.

Biden apologizes to Muslim leaders in US for questioning Hamas death toll

Why would anyone expect truth from a people who indoctrinate their children to hate and murder Israelis, spread lies including blood libels, celebrate “martyrdom” and use human shields? The nature of the jihad war was revealed on October 7. Jihad is savage, and marked by deceit. The deceit is the hallmark of the stealth jihad, which skillfully employs propaganda.

Taqiyya (dissimulation) is an encouraged practice in Islam, backed by a Qur’anic verse:

And they [the disbelievers] schemed, and Allah schemed: and Allah is the best of schemers.  Quran 3:54

As accurately stated about Palestinian culture by former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak:

“They are products of a culture in which to tell a lie… creates no dissonance….They don’t suffer from the problem of telling lies that exists in Judaeo-Christian culture….Truth is seen as an irrelevant category……There is only that which serves your purpose and that which doesn’t. They see themselves as emissaries of a national movement for whom everything is permissible. There is no such thing as ‘the truth’.”

Yet despite copious evidence regarding the Palestinian zeal for the “resistance” no matter what, Biden is still groveling to Muslims. He’s likely trying to salvage a prior vow he made to serve Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups in exchange for their votes. Biden still faces the stark truth, as other Western leaders do: that Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood have offshoots all over America and other Western countries.

“Biden offers apology to Muslim-American leaders for questioning Hamas death toll: report,” by Stepheny Price, Fox News, November 26, 2023:

President Biden reportedly issued an apology to several prominent Muslim-American leaders after openly questioning the accuracy of the death toll figures from Gaza.

During a press conference on Oct. 25, President Biden openly questioned the number of causalities in Gaza, which are reported by the Hamas government.

“I have no notion that the Palestinians are telling the truth about how many people are killed,” Biden said. “I’m sure innocents have been killed, and it’s a price of waging war.”

Biden met with five Muslim American leaders the day after his Oct. 25 comments about reported Gaza deaths.

During the meeting, Biden listened to the leaders describe people they knew who were directly impacted by the conflict in the Middle East.

“I’m sorry. I’m disappointed in myself,” Biden told the group, according to the Washington Post.

The Muslim-American leaders who met with Biden urged him to show more empathy to the Palestinians and Biden allegedly hugged one of the participants at the end of the meeting….

Heavily Shackled Humanity

“I studied the Koran a great deal … I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad.” — Alexis de Tocqueville

Despite the terrible massacre of October 7, many politicians in the West continue to talk about Islam as a “religion of peace.” Respected professors, journalists, columnists, and philosophers from Paris to San Francisco share this view. They really want to believe in it; otherwise, the claim that true evil comes from the West only, and the Islamic movement is no more than a form of national struggle of the oppressed people, becomes meaningless. Unfortunately, Hamas, like ISIS and al-Qaeda before, is pure, uncomplicated Islam in its most genuine, original form.

Islam, like some forms of Judaism and Christianity, is a religion that interprets divine revelation literally; they believe that the fulfillment of God’s laws is the only way to perfection, salvation, and harmony.

God in some understandings of these religions is anthropomorphic, omnipotent, and immanent. Like a father, He is strict and at the same time fair to His children; He knows their every step and judges them according to His laws. He may be jealous, merciful, rigid, compassionate, and solicitous. He can reveal his face and can conceal it, but the believer doesn’t have any other option except to believe that the Father in Heaven cares about him, no matter what.

His laws are irreversible. His will determines everything and everyone's tasks of a government, relations between the ruler and his subjects, punishments for crimes, individual freedoms, gender relations and the state of minorities, and public aid to the weak and feeble.

Human intervention in Divine instructions is blasphemy, which inevitably results in a severe punishment. Moreover, the followers of fundamentalist religions are inclined to believe in conspiracies of evil.

Time and misery, humanistic ideals and rational thinking have changed the nature of the once rigid Jewish and Christian beliefs, but not those of Muslims. Many Muslims were never and aren’t aware of their own blind hatred and fanaticism; they are not appalled by these, and they’ve never undergone a catharsis that would allow them to look inside themselves. Islam has never known self-reflection, doubt, and spiritual dissatisfaction, as prophetic Judaism did in the epoch of Judges and Kings, or Christianity in the Enlightenment period. Movements of spiritual protest, as the Essenes were in Jewish history, or Waldenses, Cathars, and Hussites in medieval Europe, are unfamiliar to Islam. It is proud of its own perfection, immutability, and monumentality.

It strives for expansion, which is prescribed by the Qur’an and Hadith. Religious commandments and regulations of Islam are neither a choice nor an allegory. These are literal and undeniable Divine commandments, very specific and covering the areas of human existence to the fullest possible extent. Muslims strongly believe that Allah reveals himself in every sign and every phenomenon they find His name: in the shape of clouds, spots on animals, a mole on skin, interweaving of tree’s branches, contours of stones.

Islam divides humanity into Dar al-Islam (House of Islam) with righteous, divine laws of Islam, and Dar al-Harb (House of War), with chaos, infidelity and false (or at best, imperfect) teachings. The House of Islam and the House of War are doomed to confrontation, which must end with the triumph of “true religion.” The establishment of the “Islamic state” (caliphate) based on Sharia laws via “jihad” is a divine mission of Islam, and other interpretations of the Koran and other sacred texts – such as the Hadith — do not exist.

The problem is not the ruthless uprooting of heresies, but in the fact that the heresies simply do not exist. There were countless attempts in the Medieval Europe to undermine the monolith of Dogma and return spirituality to Western Christianity, from the Troubadours to the Proto-Renaissance to the Lollards and Waldenses.

We haven’t seen anything like this in the Muslim world. Only in Sunni Islam, minor disagreements have occurred about the way to create a World State of Sharia by preserving immutable and indestructible law (the Salafis) or by adopting modern political tools, such as democratic elections, the parliamentary system and legal institutions (the Muslim Brotherhood). But the main goals remain the same. In Shia Islam, only ayatollahs have supreme, exclusive and indisputable power, without any hint of rational or humanist understanding of religion.

The enemies of Islam are subject to destruction and humiliation. Judaism and Christianity for Muslims are the ugly, weak shadow of only one true religion. The Yazidis, followers of dualism, are servants of Evil and must be destroyed physically, and in terrible agony, as children of Satan.

Conspiracy Theories are not prejudices of ignorant masses, but an integral part of the ruling elite. In July 2014, Iranian state TV translated a discussion with Valliollah Naghipourfar, cleric and professor of Tehran University, who claimed that Zionists use genies to undermine Iran; in April 2013, a well-known Iranian cleric and close confidante of Ayatollah Khamenei warned about “global Jewish sorcery”; in December 2010, Said Mohamed Abdel-Fadli Shusha, governor of South Sinai, spoke about a shark sent by “Mossad” to hurt tourists in Egypt”; in Gaza, Hamas arrested 150 women and accused them of witchcraft, and the list goes on.

The doctrine of mainstream Islam sees death through jihad as a blessing, that’s the reason that both the Sunni Hamas and Shiite Hezbollah say that they love death. Therefore, they are doing everything possible to communicate this simple idea to their ordinary, less zealous coreligionists, by slighting and intimidating them.

It is only in our time of neo-Marxist clichés and naivety that Islam could be called a religion of peace. Philosophers and historians of the Enlightenment and the nineteenth century, unlike our contemporaries, were not hypocrites.

David Hume described the Qur’an as an absurd performance of a pretended prophet who lacked a just sentiment of morals. Voltaire called Muhammad the founder of a false and barbarous sect and a false prophet. Helvetius wrote that Islam dreamed of conquering the world “by fire and sword.” Alexis de Tocqueville wrote: “I studied the Koran a great deal … I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad.” The Church historian Philip Schaff wrote: “Mohammedanism conquered the fairest portions of the earth by the sword and cursed them by polygamy, slavery, despotism, and desolation; the moving power of Islam was fanaticism and brute force.” Ernest Renan called Islam the heaviest chains that have ever shackled humanity.

Escapism has always been inherent in people. But it has never manifested itself with such power and scale of an entire civilization, as we witness today.
