Meanwhile, Biden’s handlers are planning to send massive amounts of money to the Islamic Republic of Iran, which will use it to obtain new weapons for the Houthis and other jihadis.

“US Navy seizes weapons in Arabian Sea likely bound for Yemen,” The New Arab, May 9, 2021

The US Navy announced Sunday it seized an arms shipment of thousands of assault weapons, machines [sic] guns and sniper rifles hidden aboard a ship in the Arabian Sea, apparently bound for Yemen to support the country’s Houthi rebels.

An American defense official told The Associated Press that the Navy’s initial investigation found the vessel came from Iran, again tying the Islamic Republic to arming the Houthis despite a United Nations arms embargo. Iran’s mission to the UN did not immediately respond to a request for comment, though Tehran has denied in the past giving the rebels weapons.

The seizure, one of several amid the yearslong war in Yemen, comes as the US and others try to end a conflict that spawned one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters. The arms shipment, described as sizeable, shows that the war may still have far to run.

The guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey discovered the weapons aboard what the Navy described as a stateless dhow, a traditional Mideast sailing ship, in an operation that began Thursday in the northern reaches of the Arabian Sea off Oman and Pakistan. Sailors boarded the vessel and found the weapons, most wrapped in green plastic, below deck.

When laid out on the deck of the Monterey, the scale of the find came into focus. Sailors found nearly 3,000 Chinese Type 56 assault rifles, a variant of the Kalashnikov.

They recovered hundreds of other heavy machine guns and sniper rifles, as well as dozens of advanced, Russian-made anti-tank guided missiles. The shipments also included several hundred rocket-propelled grenade launchers and optical sights for weapons.

The Navy’s Mideast-based 5th Fleet did not identify where the weapons originated, nor where they were going. However, an American defense official said the weapons resembled those of other shipments interdicted bounded for the Houthis.

Based on interviews with the crew and material investigated on board, the sailors determined the vessel came from Iran, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation.

“After all illicit cargo was removed, the dhow was assessed for seaworthiness, and after questioning, its crew was provided food and water before being released,” the 5th Fleet said in a statement.

The seizure marks just the latest in the Arabian Sea or Gulf of Aden involving weapons likely bound to Yemen. The seizures began in 2016 and have continued intermittently throughout the war, which has seen the Houthis fire ballistic missiles and use drones later linked to Iran. Yemen is awash with small arms that have been smuggled into poorly controlled ports over years of conflict.

This recent seizure appeared to be among the biggest. Tim Michetti, an investigative researcher who studies the illicit weapon trade, also said the shipment bore similarities to the others.

“The unique blend of materiel recovered by the USS Monterey appears to be consistent with the materiel from previous interdictions, which have been linked to Iran,” he said….

UK rape gang victim, abused by hundreds of Muslim migrants, tells how she was dismissed by police, social workers

A Muslim rape gang victim, “Sarah,” tells the story of how hundreds of Pakistani Muslim men raped and abused her along with other girls in the “care system.” Social workers and “care” staff knew exactly what was going on, but did nothing. In fact, at 14, Sarah was scapegoated and blamed for her own rapes by social workers and ignored by police, as Muslim rape gangs continued to severely abuse the girls, pimp them out and traffick them.

BBC reported in February about the deplorable state of Britain’s “unregulated homes for children” that only recently became regulated:

BBC News investigations revealed that children as young as 11 were being housed in these homes, and young people faced “organised abuse” in placements.
The ban does not affect thousands of placements of 16 and 17 year-olds in unregulated homes.
Children’s minister Vicky Ford said “every child deserves a stable and loving home”.

Children in these homes have been perfect targets for Muslim rape gangs. They are forgotten children of the state, treated as cattle. They fully trust an establishment that has thrown them to the wolves. This is how Muslim rape gangs are allowed to go on. They prey primarily on the most vulnerable, but no one is safe.

Sarah said: “I was taken to Birmingham a lot – for three years I was repeatedly missing. There were hundreds of men involved in Birmingham….They brought lots of girls from Derby to Birmingham – men from Birmingham would pick us up – and men from Derby would take us to Birmingham.” She referenced these Muslim rape gangs as “predators on the prowl” who “would never change.”

Rather than dedicate the resources needed to end Muslim rape gangs and bring these men to justice, the British system focuses on how to stop “Islamophobia” and crack down on so-called “hate,” as defined by Islamic supremacist special interest groups. Police, social workers and politicians have protected the vilest serial criminals in Britain, out of fear of being called “Islamophobic” and “racist.” These “protectors” have sent the message to Muslim rape gang predators that it’s ok to rape and abuse British girls, particularly those in the “care” system. It’s a windfall for these gangs who use and abuse these girls as sex slaves in keeping with Islamic tenets that permit such treatment toward infidel women. Back in Pakistan, Christian and Hindu girls are routinely forced into marriages, raped and forced to convert. Western feminists prefer to focus on the alleged “toxic masculinity” of white men, while the unspeakable abuses committed by some Muslim men go undiscussed.

“Grooming gangs ‘trafficking girls to Birmingham from Derbyshire for decades,” by Jeanette Ildham, Birmingham Mail, May 2, 2021:

Grooming gangs were trafficking girls to Birmingham for decades with police failing to act, a survivor has claimed.

And Sarah, whose name we have changed to protect her identity, has questioned how the West Midlands force has yet to bring groups of offenders to justice as seen in other high profile cases like Rotherham and Telford.

She told how she was abused by predatory gangs while a runaway from care homes in Derby in the early 2000s.

She says Asian men of Pakistani heritage would regularly take her and friends to Birmingham where she was plied with drink and drugs and abused.

In one incident, she claims West Midlands Police officers stopped a car she was in with a group of abusers and another girl.

Despite taking the underage youngsters’ names and ages she says she was allowed on her way with the gang.

Sarah said: “Birmingham police stopped the car and took mine and my friend’s names and the men’s names. I was really scared as I didn’t know what was going to happen but the police just let us drive off.

“When we later got back to my care home the staff told me the police had rung and said we’d been stopped with really dangerous men. I thought, ‘Well if they were that dangerous why did you leave us with them?'”

Sarah says she was extensively groomed and abused in Derby and later repeatedly trafficked between Derby, Birmingham and Bradford by men from Birmingham and Derby.

She said: “I gave Derby police my Birmingham offenders’ names – but no one has ever been charged.

“I know of lots of Derby girls who were groomed in Birmingham, I don’t know why we don’t see high profile grooming cases in court in Birmingham like we have seen elsewhere in the country.”

She added: “I was groomed and abused between 1999 and 2003. And I was really horrendously groomed in Birmingham. It wasn’t just me, lots of girls, and lots of girls I know, were taken from Derby to be abused in Birmingham.

“I gave all the information I had to Derby police in 2012. No one was charged but I was very traumatised and very mentally unwell then so I don’t really know what happened.”

Sarah was born to a drug addict and prostitute mother and endured an unimaginable upbringing.

Her care records, which BirminghamLive has seen, reflect that she was targeted by her mum’s dealers and ‘clients’ from a young age as her ‘evil’ mother allowed sickening attacks to take place in return for drugs.

“I look at it in separate ways,” she recalled.

“On the one hand, my mum was evil. A lot of groomers who groom children just happen to be heroin and crack dealers, they are gang members, they are mafia-type gang members.

“My mum was in care herself, she was abused, she was not believed, she had mental health issues and is on crack and heroin, she’s selling herself on the corner and that’s very normal to her because that is what they let happen to my mum.

“So mum was kind of groomed, you could say, into heroin, exploitation, so in one way I feel that groomers targeted my mum so she’s a kind of victim too. In another way, it’s as though my mum was totally in on my abuse as well.”

She added: “Because I was very young, the reason I got removed from my mum’s care was because her pimps abused me.

“My care records show that I was abused by a man whilst in my mother’s care and social workers believed me – but I was still left with her. I was then abused again and taken into care.

“Then in my early teens I was abused for five years by grooming gangs, mostly Asian men of Pakistani heritage – whilst I was living in care.”…

Portland BLM/Antifa Draw Guns on Drivers to Enforce No-Go Zone in Broad Daylight

BY VICTORIA TAFT

Portland’s revolutionaries from Black Lives Matter and antifa took over a busy street at noon on Wednesday and pulled guns on drivers who dared try to dart past the mob. The groups were holding a rally for a gangland shooter who was killed by police in 2018. That shooting was ruled justified (more below).

The chaotic scene included guns being drawn on white drivers by the multiracial BLM and antifa protesters and one driver drew his own weapon in reply. Someone deployed pepper spray.

A driver was reportedly beaten and held against his will, another had his back window destroyed and shots of some sort were fired by the AK-47- and AR-15-wielding terrorists. Multiple sharp sounds were heard followed by the sound of whooshing air after the militants flattened the tires of a car the gun-wielding crowd had forced to stop. The man was “aided” to the sidewalk, as a live-streamer put it (see the video below).

Portland
Antifa/BLM terrorists wield guns as they block citizens from traveling on public streets.

The driver in the video above had his keys, gun, and tools stolen out of his truck, according to Portland police, who finally showed up to take a report in response to an apparently false claim that someone had been hit by one of the cars.

As officers arrived they did not find any pedestrians who claimed to have been struck. The large group had moved away, still walking in nearby streets, some openly carrying firearms. Officers remained in the area searching for anyone who may have been injured and to collect evidence and information.

Additional calls came in from people who had been driving vehicles in the area and who were blocked by the crowd in the street. One person said people in the crowd broke out their vehicle windows, damaged tires, and sprayed them with some kind of irritant near North Interstate Avenue and North Killingsworth Street.

A person in another vehicle blocked by the crowd near North Alberta Street and North Michigan Avenue got into a dispute with people who surrounded him and took a firearm from him, as well as tools and keys.

See another video of the melee below.

A video taken of the event doesn’t tell the whole story, of course, and details are few. But you don’t need to see the video to know that this looks like another act of terrorism on the streets of Portland by Antifa thugs. It also highlights again that BLM and their Antifa “security” are armed, dangerous, and willing to confront people who get in their way. As the Left is fond of saying, “by any means necessary.”

This is the banana republic encouraged by Democrats who have run Portland for decades. While city leaders spend time and money on defunding police and diversity-intersectional-art-tax projects and throwing away millions on its nearly 15th year of “ending homelessness in ten years,” actual law-abiding people are being harmed by the scourge of these thugs.

Expect more clashes like this.

Mayor Ted Wheeler’s flaccid denunciations of Antifa and the district attorney setting rioters free when they’re caught red-handed makes Portland an easy target for this kind of lawlessness.

The marchers took over the street at North Interstate Avenue and North Killingworth Street in North Portland. The marchers demanded “justice” for Portlander Patrick Kimmons, who was killed by police in 2018 after he’d shot two people in a gangland shooting. Police demanded he drop his gun and when he didn’t, they shot him. The shooting was declared justified and officers were cleared of any wrongdoing in the case.

Portland does allow open carry of unloaded weapons and concealed carry. But, as I explain in my podcast series, Portland is attempting to do away with self-defense, one conservative at a time.

Mogadishu, here we come.

STILL IN NATO? WHY?: Turkish schoolbooks glorify jihad and martyrdom, include anti-American messages, sympathy for ISIS

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/05/turkish-schoolbooks;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Jihadist regimes have long understood the benefits of indoctrinating children to wage jihad and glorify martyrdom. And so it is no surprise that under Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the jihad ideology has spread into schools:

According to a recently released analysis of 28 Turkish textbooks, that country’s education system, which was once a model of secularism that taught evolution, cultural openness, tolerance toward minorities, and Kurdish as a minority language, has increasingly replaced those concepts with notions of jihad, martyrdom in battle, and a neo-Ottoman and pan-Turkist ethno-religious worldview in its curricula.

It gets worse:

recent curricula — in a NATO country that has long aspired to EU membership — include anti-American and anti-Armenian messages, display “sympathy for the motivations of ISIS and Al-Qaeda.”

Turkey should long ago have been expelled from NATO.

“This Time Turkish, Not Saudi, Schoolbooks Are Under Scrutiny,” by James M. Dorsey, Algemeiner, May 3, 2021:

According to a recently released analysis of 28 Turkish textbooks, that country’s education system, which was once a model of secularism that taught evolution, cultural openness, tolerance toward minorities, and Kurdish as a minority language, has increasingly replaced those concepts with notions of jihad, martyrdom in battle, and a neo-Ottoman and pan-Turkist ethno-religious worldview in its curricula.

The report, by the Israeli research group Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (Impact-se)…assert that recent curricula — in a NATO country that has long aspired to EU membership — include anti-American and anti-Armenian messages, display “sympathy for the motivations of ISIS and Al-Qaeda,” focus exclusively on Sunni Muslim teachings, and replace electives such as Kurdish with religious courses.

The textbooks promote concepts like “Turkish World Domination” and the Turkish or Ottoman “Ideal of the World Order,” the report said.

“Education is a prime pillar in [President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan’s efforts to drape the country in the cloak of Sharia… The Ministry of Education has been pressuring citizens to conform to conservative Islamic practices in public schools,” commented Turkey scholar Soner Cagaptay in a forward to the study.

The study was released as Turkey was attempting to repair relations with Europe and Middle Eastern states, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Israel, that were bruised by Ankara’s aggressive assertiveness in Libya, Syria, the Caucasus, and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Erdogan spoke in a video conference to European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in advance of a European summit that was scheduled to discuss relations with Turkey.

The conference came a day after the EU shelved plans to blacklist senior executives of Turkey’s state-owned Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO) in retaliation for Turkish drilling for natural gas in disputed waters in the eastern Mediterranean.

The report is likely to add to skepticism about an 11-point human rights action plan recently unveiled by Erdogan that he said would bolster freedoms and legal protections.

Erdogan has undermined freedom of the press and the independence of the judiciary, and arrested thousands on often flimsy charges since he defeated a failed military coup in 2016. As a result, Turkey ranks today as one of the world’s foremost jailers of journalists.

Turkish police recently detained several officials of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), days after a top public prosecutor demanded the party’s dissolution for alleged links to Kurdish nationalist militants. Parliament also expelled an HDP deputy, undermining Erdogan’s effort to suggest that he is adhering to values projected by Europe and US President Joe Biden….

FBI Caught Snooping Through NSA Records to Look for ‘Racially Motivated Violent Extremists’

BY ROBERT SPENCER

My latest in PJ Media:

The Daily Beast reported last week that “The FBI, without any court order, sifted through the National Security Agency’s massive troves of foreign communications for information on American “racially motivated violent extremists,” even though the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court warned the FBI in 2018 that its warrant-free queries” were unconstitutional. The first question that springs to mind in connection with this is: to whom can we turn when those who are supposed to be protecting us have been thoroughly corrupted and weaponized against the American people? And the second question is: Why are “racially motivated violent extremists” so hard to find that the FBI has to do an illegal deep dive into NSA material to find them?

The FBI is trying to validate the narrative that Old Joe Biden’s handlers had him enunciate (which he did, remarkably, without getting tongue-tied or saying something incoherent) during his message to Congress. “’As I stand here tonight,” Biden intoned Wednesday, “just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration. 100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis. The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”

The idea that the entry of a group of unarmed people into the U.S. Capitol constituted the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” was not just ridiculous (remember 9/11? Pearl Harbor?); it was insidious. Beyond the silliness and hysteria is an insidious agenda. Biden’s handlers mean to stigmatize, demonize and silence all dissent from their far-left agenda. Wildly exaggerating what happened on January 6, and the concomitant “white supremacist agenda,” is in service of that agenda.

And so the FBI goes fishing in material the NSA obtained without a warrant, trying to validate the left’s claims. And this has been a long time coming: Jana Winter reported in Yahoo News in February that “the U.S. government is acknowledging for the first time that right-wing extremists were responsible for the majority of fatal domestic terrorist attacks last year, according to an internal report circulated by the Department of Homeland Security last week.” But as you might expect, the actual report was long on vague assertions and decidedly short on facts.

There is more. Read the rest here. SEE: https://pjmedia.com/columns/robert-spencer/2021/05/03/fbi-goes-hunting-for-racially-motivated-violent-extremists-n1444256

Anti-BLM Parent: America Won’t “Survive Teaching Our Children to Hate Their Country and Their History”

Anti-BLM Parent: America Won’t “Survive Teaching Our Children to Hate Their Country and Their History”

BY SELWYN DUKE

George Santayana’s famous saying “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” requires some delineation:

  • Those who cannot remember the triumphs of the past are likely condemned not to repeat them, and
  • Those who are told the mistakes of the past were triumphs will repeat them.

New York City parent Andrew Gutmann understands this well. Gutmann, who attracted national attention by issuing a now-viral letter addressed to Brearley School parents warning of the institution’s fatal race obsession, has sounded another alarm.

“We already do a horrific job in this country teaching history, and now we’re going to make that 10 times worse, we’re going to eradicate that,” the father told Fox News in a new interview.

“Our country doesn’t survive not teaching history and civics, and it sure as hell doesn’t survive teaching our children to hate their country and their history.” 

Gutmann is correct: What he warned of regarding posh private school Brearly, which he pulled his daughter from recently after seven years’ attendance, is a nationwide phenomenon.

Moreover, the Critical Race Theory obsession now sweeping academia — which teaches hatred of whites, America, and Western culture — is just the latest iteration of the Howard Zinn-aided, Gramscian march through the institutions that began many, many decades ago.

Gutmann said in his interview that Brearly parents — who pay $54,000-yearly tuition for the indoctrination — and their children were pressured by the school to become Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists.

This is despite BLM being a neo-Marxist organization whose members once chanted that they want “dead cops.” The group also demands the abolition of police; the “repeal of all immigration restrictions”; “the legalization of sex work”; “the destruction of the Western-prescribed nuclear family”; and, according to a report last year by commentator Tucker Carlson, “the forced reallocation of farmland” (à la Zimbabwe).

Tellingly, some of these toxic positions were featured on BLM’s website — until the group gained greater institutional acceptance and removed its older “Guiding Principles” page so it could masquerade as palatable. (The original page can still be found via an archiving service here.)

Yet many American schools are now taking a leaf from BLM’s book. As for Brearly, Gutmann says that the school “made it sound like they’re going to integrate this racial curriculum, this anti-racism curriculum, into everything — every class, into math, into gym, P.E.; it was shocking that they were taking that degree of integrating it into everything.”

Note that this is a hallmark of “ideological nations,” where the official state ideology is “pervasive,” to use a word Gutmann did when describing BLM racialism’s dominance at Brearly.

The father also mentioned that the Left’s new “Silence is violence” mentality reigns at the school. If “you just stay silent, you’re racist,” he lamented. “You have to be an activist for that. If you’re not an activist for an anti-racism initiative, for Black Lives Matter, for example, you are racist, you are a bad person, you are an oppressor, you are not doing the right thing.”

You can watch clips of Gutmann’s interview here. His original letter, which is quite compelling, was related in the video below.

One of the most striking things about the Critical Race Theory phenomenon is how unintellectual its embrace is. It basically originated last Tuesday (figuratively speaking), but “educators” coast to coast behave as if it’s enlightening, timeless brilliance from on high.

It’s a fad, and its popularity reflects a deeper problem: The prevalence of “changeist,” immature moderns who treasure the spirit of the age over the ageless, who prefer “Thursday over Wednesday because it is Thursday,” as G.K. Chesterton put it. Detached from and not believing in Truth, they’ll embrace a lie as long as it’s the latest thing on the cocktail-party circuit.

Today’s anti-American racialist lie is a destructive one, too. Author George Orwell once noted that the “most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” This is now a fait accompli in America.

When I worked with kids, I once asked a small group of them who the “Father of America” was. Their answer wasn’t George Washington — it was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. These were upper-class white children, too.

Then there was the 14-year-old I was instructing in religious education who, I discovered, hadn’t heard of Adolf Hitler. Both these incidents occurred 15 to 20 years ago, too, do note.

Now, question: If you don’t know much about American history’s arguably most important figure or are ignorant of the 20th-century’s most notorious one, what of historical importance do you know?

Studies indicate that American youth don’t know much. This matters because, harking back to my opening lines, history is essentially a record of a series of man’s social experiments. And it’s as with a scientist: He remains mindful of his field’s record of experiments so that he can say, “Oh, we tried that before and it didn’t work” or “Yes, that bore fruit; we should now build upon it.”

Of course, though, if children know nothing of history, you can easily feed them a revisionist version of it and make them think that good was bad and bad, good. And now you know part of the reason why a 2020 poll found that “70 percent of Millennials say they are likely to vote for a socialist while one in three view communism favorably,” as Campus Reform reported last year.  

Moreover, “22 percent of millennials believe ‘society would be better if all private property was abolished,’” the site also related.

And this is what happens when good history and virtue are abolished. But what needs to be abolished is any curriculum reflecting so-called “leftism” and any educator advocating it. Unless there’s a patriotic march through the institutions that tramples Gramsci’s ghost, what remains of the American spirit will be relegated to the grave.   

MINNEAPOLIS: Police Refuse To Enter George Floyd Autonomous Zone, Force Bleeding Woman To Go To Them

"She is bleeding and cut everywhere, but we'll call back and ask her to move a block away."

BY NATIONAL FILE

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/posts/minneapolis-police-refuse-to-enter-george-floyd-autonomous-zone-force-bleeding-woman-to-go-to-them/; republished unedited for educational, and research purposes.

Minneapolis police are refusing to enter the George Floyd Autonomous Zone, with emergency responders instructing a bleeding woman who was pushed out of a window to go to them.

Known as “George Floyd Square,” or “The Free State of George Floyd,”  the area surrounding the death site of Floyd has been operating as an Autonomous Zone independent from control of the police or emergency services since September last year, encompassing seven to eight blocks in total. With police refusing to enter lest they face violent reprisals from radical antifa or Black Lives Matter activists, victims of crime are left to fend for themselves, or meet police outside the zone.

One particularly disturbing incident took place at the end of last month, where a female victim was pushed out of a window in a domestic dispute on the corner of 38th and Elliot. Police dispatch audio revealed the attitude taken by police regarding breaching the George Floyd Autonomous Zone. “Is it possible to have her move at least a block away, maybe [to] 38 and 10th?” asked the police officer responding to her 911 call. “She is bleeding and cut everywhere, but we’ll call her back and ask her to move a block away,” the dispatcher responded, with the woman ordered to move, despite her severe injuries.

Multiple people have died within the George Floyd Autonomous Zone, with the police unable to respond to their calls. Leneesha Columbus, a pregnant black woman, was shot in the zone, and police officers set up their staging area half a mile away from the incident. “We’ll meet at 34th and Elliot, see if we can get the victim extracted to a closer location to us. And no lights or sirens, please,” an officer told dispatch. Columbus died. More recently, Imaz Wright was shot during a gang-related shooting on March 6th – police were informed that her and another victim would be carried to the edge of the zone. Wright died.

Even before the Autonomous Zone had been properly created, one man died due to “caretakers” of what was then just a memorial for Floyd blocking access to emergency services. Dameon Chambers was shot during a Juneteenth celebration last year, with city documents revealing that that police “ultimately had to pull Mr Chambers to an area” where the ambulance could gain access to.

Business owners and residents, many of them black, feel abandoned by the police and authorities. “The city left me in danger,” said Alexander W, the owner of the Smoke in The Pit restaurant to the New York Post last month. “They locked us up on here and left us behind,” he added, saying that they have no food or water either. Some of the businesses even set up a GoFundMe page, asking for donations to help them survive.

The border to the autonomous zone is currently guarded by Antifa activists. National File reported last month that the activists had threatened a reporter, telling him he would be “in a bad situation in a second” if he didn’t leave. At the border are instructions for anyone who wishes to enter, instructing visitors to “honour the space” and treat it with reverence. White people are specifically asked to “decenter” themselves, and monitor other white people for any “problematic” behavior.

The inspiration for the George Floyd Autonomous Zone, CHAZ, which sprung up in Seattle last Summer, also suffered a spate of shootings, with no response from police. One man who was shot in June even wanted to sue the police for not responding quickly enough, despite the fact that crowds reportedly resisted the police entering. However, unlike the Free State of George Floyd, which has now lasted for over 7 months, CHAZ was shut down by police after existing for just over three weeks.

Seattle Antifa Hate Group Threatens to Burn Down Church Over Event With Charlie Kirk

Seattle Antifa Hate Group Threatens to Burn Down Church Over Event With Charlie Kirk

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

A Puyallup, Wash., church has canceled an event featuring conservative speaker Charlie Kirk after antifa activists threatened to burn down all of its buildings and torch the neighbors’ properties too.

Motion Church planned an event with Kirk, the head of Turning Point USA and a Christian speaker, on May 2.

The church, in a community south of Seattle, ministers to the homeless, lost, and addicted people in addition to hosting regular services and events at the church for families, and those seeking to know Christ more.

But hosting Charlie Kirk was just a bridge too far for the antifa terror group.

On Friday, Motion Church Pastor Roger Archer posted a video announcing that he was being forced to cancel the May 3 event because “the soft targets of churches, the elderly, women, children, and law-abiding citizens are vulnerable to anarchists who live free of the fear of reprisal. [T]he cops don’t have the manpower to protect the several properties used by the church.”

It’s unclear how the terror threats were communicated to the church leadership, but Pastor Archer said the fact that the cops don’t have the manpower to help and the governor doesn’t have the political will to fight back means the church would have been left to the antifa arsonists and vandals of antifa and BLM.

What a state of affairs.

In the video, Archer said the threats targeted not just the church properties but the homes and properties around them.

Radical terrorist mobs, like the ones who rioted on Seattle’s Capitol Hill, they sprung into action. They sprung with threatening declarations.They vowed to not only burn our properties to the ground, they but also brought threats of physical threats against our church leadership, our neighbors, their property, and basically wreak havoc in our community – this precious community that we love.

I’m sitting here wondering what to do. What recent history has taught us is there’s an apparent lack of interest at the state level of leadership to protect decent, taxpaying citizens. Those terrorist mobs know that there is no consequence for their lawlessness.They have nothing to lose and nothing to fear.

Ultimately, the church had to rescind the offer to speak.

Therefore, it is for the safety of my precious city and our precious church people that I have heartbreakingly cancelled our event with Mr. Kirk. Our deepest apologies go out to Mr. Kirk and his organization. He deserves much better from our state leadership, but, unfortunately, this is where we are. I will not put soft targets in harm’s way. I will not subject our community to destruction. And since our governor will not protect us we must take this course of action.

This is a sad commentary of our state of affairs, however, this only makes me more determined to to love and lead our community in new and creative ways. I want you to remember this, Motion Church: Love always wins.

After enduring nearly a year of protests, freeway blockings, fires, takeovers, and threats, it seems Washington’s political class is incapable of standing against the domestic terrorists of antifa and BLM.

Once again, these antifa activists that harm the law-abiding in the Pacific Northwest pretend they’re anti-fascist, but are in reality the ones threatening violence, silencing free speech, and trading in terror.

New Rasmussen Report Finds 63 Percent of Americans Fear Anti-police Rhetoric Going Too Far

New Rasmussen Report Finds 63 Percent of Americans Fear Anti-police Rhetoric Going Too Far

In the aftermath of Tuesday’s conviction of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for the killing of George Floyd, anti-police rhetoric has reached a fever pitch. A new Rasmussen Reports survey, released this week, has found that 63 percent of American adults are concerned that this “growing criticism of America’s police will lead to a shortage of police officers and reduce public safety in the community where they live.”

Thirty-seven percent told Rasmussen pollsters that they are “very concerned.”

They have good reason to be. During the 1919 Boston police strike, citizens there experienced a wave of hooliganism, strong-armed robberies, smashed store windows, and criminal activity, when the criminal element of the city realized there were was little to no police presence.

According to the Rasmussen poll, only about 10 percent expressed no concern at all about the negative effects on public safety of anti-police rhetoric.

The poll questioned 1,000 likely U.S. voters on April 13 and 14, asking, “How concerned are you that the growing criticism of America’s police will lead to a shortage of police officers and reduce public safety in the community where you live?”

U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) said last week, “Policing in our country is inherently and intentionally racist. I am done with those who condone government-funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.” Despite such vitriolic rhetoric, which is not unique to radicals such as Tlaib, a majority of black voters — 52 percent — also said that they are very concerned about the anti-police rhetoric.

Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) challenged Tlaib’s remarks during an interview with Fox News. “No fair-minded person believes that cops, many of whom are racial minorities, get up every day and go to work hoping for the opportunity to be able to hurt someone, including but not limited to people of color. That’s nonsense. But the ‘woke-a-reestas’ like the congresswoman, they really believe that. They really do hate cops, just because they’re cops. They really do want to defund the police.”

Kennedy added, “The ‘woke-a’reestas’ really do believe that when a cop shoots a criminal, it is always — every single time — the cop’s fault, but when a criminal shoots a cop, it is always — every single time — the gun’s fault. These folks really do have contempt for America.”

In a way, the hatred of police, as expressed by Tlaib, is based on a radical leftist view of the purpose of government. Whereas government’s purpose, according to Scripture and the Founders, is to protect our lives, our liberty, and our property, leftists see government as a tool to redistribute wealth and impose their radical vision. Obviously, if there were no police and no incarceration, then there would be no way for a person to defend his life, liberty, and property, except to defend it himself.

At the same time that radicals such as Tlaib wish to end policing and incarceration, they also call for more and more restrictions on the private ownership of firearms. With no police and no guns in the hands of private citizens, life would become intolerable, and the private economy would deteriorate. We can already see this happening in major cities of America. Who wants to open a business in, or even live in, a community in which life, liberty, and property is subject to frequent attacks by the mob?

Actually, those who call for the abolition of local police forces are not really calling for the abolition of all law-enforcement agents. What they are calling for is the nationalization of police. Local police departments are often harassed by the U.S. Department of Justice now. The end-game for these anti-police radicals is for all policing to be in the hands of the federal government.

Nationalization of police is always the goal of totalitarians. One of the first actions taken by National Socialist dictator Adolf Hitler was to nationalize the police forces of Germany. Anyone who has ever heard of Hitler’s Gestapo can understand that nationalization of police does not lead to less abuse of power by police, but more.

Certainly, any time a person is handed power and authority, as is the case with local police, there is a danger of abuse. However, the alternative to local police is not desirable, and procedures are in place to weed out the tiny minority of bad cops.

Hopefully, those who advocate removing police protection from the productive and law-abiding segment of society will be repudiated at the polls, as the Rasmussen poll indicates is a strong possibility.

Iran: Advanced centrifuges discovered at nuke facility, again proving Islamic Republic violated 2015 deal~Israel retaliates after missile fired by Syrian forces targets Israeli aircraft and nuclear reactor

Jihad Watch has reported repeatedly on Iran’s violations of the 2015 nuke deal. Iran has even admitted this. This is a slap in the face to all the countries that are in Vienna to discuss a renewed nuke deal. Iran will continue to brazenly violate any deal. Globalists will blindly ignore the Iranian regime’s deception, to their own detriment. What Marxists fail to grasp is that Iran will use them, but will never accept them as equals. The Sharia, in Iran’s view, is the highest authority. Any system of government that is not compliant with the Sharia is viewed as part of infidel territory (dar al harb) to be conquered. It is only a matter of time before the great divide appears in the red-green axis.

“Iran installed more advanced centrifuges at Natanz – IAEA,” Reuters, April 22, 2021:

Iran has installed extra advanced centrifuges at its underground uranium enrichment plant at Natanz that was hit by a blast last week, a report by the U.N. atomic watchdog on Wednesday showed, deepening Iran’s breaches of its nuclear deal with major powers.

The explosion and a power outage damaged an unknown number of centrifuges and Iranian state TV has shown footage of machines that it says were replaced there. Iran has blamed Israel for the explosion. Israel has not commented formally on it.

The International Atomic Energy Agency report was not clear on how many centrifuges are in use but it gave “up to” numbers of advanced machines installed at the plant that were higher than previously indicated. The report made no mention of the explosion or its effect on the plant’s activity.

“On 21 April 2021, the Agency verified at FEP that: … six cascades of up to 1,044 IR-2m centrifuges; and two cascades of up to 348 IR-4 centrifuges … were installed, of which a number were being used,” the IAEA report to member states said, referring to the underground Fuel Enrichment Plant at Natanz. The report was seen by Reuters.

According to a previous report, the IAEA verified on March 31 that Iran was using 696 IR-2m machines and 174 IR-4 machines at the FEP.

Wednesday’s report is the latest evidence that Iran is pressing ahead with the installation of the advanced machines, even though it is not allowed to use them to produce enriched uranium under the 2015 agreement….

Israel retaliates after missile fired by Syrian forces targets Israeli aircraft and nuclear reactor

Israel is forced to be more vigilant since the Biden Administration took over. Trump kept Iran at bay via sanctions, and he commanded respect, even from enemies.

All this is happening while a so-called nuclear deal is being worked out, one with which Iran has never complied; nor will it ever. The goal of Iran (and its proxies) remains the obliteration of the State of Israel. Ditto for surrounding jihadists, including the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Hizballah, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

“Israel retaliates after Syrian missile lands near nuclear reactor,” Reuters, April 21, 2021:

A Syrian missile exploded in southern Israel on Thursday, the Israeli military said, in an incident that triggered warning sirens near the secretive Dimona nuclear reactor and an Israeli strike in Syria.

An Israeli military spokesman identified the projectile as an SA-5 surface-to-air missile fired by Syrian forces against Israeli aircraft. He said it overflew its target to reach the Dimona area, 200 km (125 miles) south of the Syrian border.

The missile did not hit the reactor, exploding some 30 km (19 miles) away, the spokesman added.

The sirens that sounded overnight in the Dimona area followed weeks of heightened tension between Israel and Iran, a close ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, amid renewed global negotiations over Tehran’s nuclear programme.

For weeks, Israeli media have said air defences around the Dimona reactor and the Red Sea port of Eilat were being strengthened in anticipation of a possible long-range missile or drone attack by Iranian-backed forces.

In public remarks on Thursday’s incident, Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz said the anti-aircraft missile was fired from Syria during an Israeli strike there against “assets that could be used for a potential attack against Israel”.

Gantz said Israel’s anti-missile systems had attempted to intercept the SA-5 but were unsuccessful.

“In most cases, we achieve other results. This is a slightly more complex case. We will investigate it and move on,” he said. Israeli security sources said the missile exploded in mid-air.

In response, Israel launched further overnight attacks inside Syria, the military spokesman said, targeting several missile batteries, including the one that fired the SA-5.

Syria’s state news agency said the country’s air defence system intercepted Israeli rockets over the suburbs of Damascus “and downed most of them”. Four soldiers were injured and there was some material damage, it said…..

Alternate Juror on Chauvin Trial Says She Feared Riots, People Turning Up At Her Home

A woman who sat as an alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin trial told a local news station that she was concerned about “rioting and destruction” as well as people turning up at her house if they were angry at the verdict.

Lisa Christensen also revealed to KARE 11 how the riots that preceded the verdict were close to her house and that she routinely witnessed them after the trial had concluded for the day.

“When I came home, I could hear the helicopters flying over my house… I could hear the flash bangs going off,” Christensen said. “If I stepped outside, I could see the smoke from the grenades. One day, the trial ran a little late, and I had trouble getting to my house, because the protesters were blocking the interstate, so I had to go way around.”

Christensen said she had no idea she would be dismissed by the judge and not be a part of deliberations, something that happened “right before the 12 jurors were sequestered.”

The alternate juror said she was disappointed to be dismissed and that she would have found Chauvin guilty if she had been part of the final 12 jurors.

Judging by Christensen’s remarks, that guilty verdict would clearly have been influenced not primarily by the evidence, but by the threat of mass rioting and threats to her own personal safety.

“I did not want to go through rioting and destruction again and I was concerned about people coming to my house if they were not happy with the verdict,” she said.

The comments clearly suggest that members of the jury were swayed by the threat of nationwide civil unrest, violence and looting that would have undoubtedly occurred had Chauvin escaped any of the charges.

“This is the clearest picture yet of the terroristic intimidation jurors faced to ensure Chauvin was found guilty in what was fundamentally a rigged show trial,” comments Chris Menahan.

“That the trial was not moved out of Minneapolis is a sick joke but since Charlottesville this has become the new normal.”

Other individuals who testified in defense of Chauvin also had their homes attacked before the jury was sent away to reach a verdict.

Dershowitz: Maxine Waters Used KKK Tactics to Intimidate Chauvin Jury~REP. MAXINE WATERS STOKING VIOLENCE~DUE PROCESS VIOLATIONS MAY HELP WIN AT APPEAL

BY MATT MARGOLIS

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Lawyer and liberal pundit Alan Dershowitz accused Rep. Maxine Waters of using KKK tactics to intimidate jurors in the Derek Chauvin murder trial.

“The Klan would march outside of courthouses and threaten all kinds of reprisals if the jury ever dared convict a white person or acquit a black person,” Dershowitz said in an interview on Newsmax.

Waters traveled to Minnesota and announced that if the jury didn’t reach the verdict she and the crowd of protesters wanted, they would get “more confrontational.”

“We’ve got to stay in the streets, and we’ve got to demand justice. I am hopeful that we will get a verdict that says, ‘guilty, guilty, guilty,’ and if we don’t, we cannot go away. We’ve got to get more confrontational,” she said.

Dershowitz believes that her comments should have resulted in a mistrial.

“Her message was clearly intended to get to the jury: ‘If you will acquit or if you find the charge less than murder, we will burn down your buildings. We will burn down your businesses. We will attack you. We will do what happened to the witness — blood on their door,'” Dershowitz explained. “The judge, of course, wouldn’t grant a mistrial because then he’d be responsible for the riots that would ensue, even though it was Waters who was responsible,” he added.

Several Republicans also accused Waters of inciting violent riots, and a resolution to censure Waters was filed by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, but House Democrats blocked the resolution.

George Floyd Autonomous Zone Issues ‘Rules For White People’

Area begins to resemble a religious cult encampment.

BY PAUL JOSEPH WATSON

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/posts/george-floyd-autonomous-zone-issues-rules-for-white-people/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The ‘George Floyd Autonomous Zone’ in Minneapolis has issued a list of ‘rules for white people’ that they have to abide by in order to enter the area.

The zone has popped up around the area that Floyd died and has come to resemble something akin to a religious cult encampment.

Apparently, baptisms, miracles and other spiritual events can be witnessed on a regular basis.

However, entering the area as a white person comes with potential risks if you make the mistake of behaving in a “problematic” manner.

All visitors are asked to wear face masks and act with “humility,” but a lengthier list of rules for white people explains how they will be treated differently.

Whites are asked to “decenter yourself,” which is a euphemism for a mandate to behave like second-class citizens and keep quiet.

“Be mindful of whether your volume, pace and movements are supporting or undermining your efforts to decenter yourself,” states the advisory.

The patronizing tone continues with a demand to “contribute to the energy of the space, rather than drain it.”

The rules also state that white people should seriously consider whether taking photos is appropriate and to seek consent from anyone they photograph, despite the whole area being public.

The rules also encourage whites to intervene if they “witness white folks doing problematic things,” which presumably includes doing anything other than engaging in slavish worship for the 21st-century deity that is George Floyd.

Black Lives Matter groups routinely issue demands of white people for their events, some of which enforce outright segregation.

As we highlighted last week, a group of Black Lives Matter protesters in Minneapolis were caught on camera telling a white liberal ally, “You’re white! You don’t belong!” before demanding that he leave the area.

Following the conviction of Derek Chauvin, BLM mobs also descended on diners in New York while telling white restaurant owners to “get the f**k out” of the city.”

The D.C. BLM Insurrectionists Get a Pass

It’s okay to riot in D.C., and assault government buildings and police officers again.

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/04/dc-blm-insurrectionists-get-pass-daniel-greenfield/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

The face of the Black Lives Matter insurrectionist who was arrested in Washington D.C. with an axe, a laser, and a “destructive device” will not be plastered by the FBI over any local billboards. 

The BLM insurrections who rioted in Washington D.C. over the death of Daunte Wright, who had choked a woman to steal her rent money, threw fireworks and heavy objects at police. They shone lasers in the eyes of police officers and vandalized the Columbus monument with the obscene and hateful graffiti of a racist black supremacist movement. And they’ll get a pass.

Even when the racist insurrectionist mob chanted, “burn the precinct to the ground.” 

While the D.C. police department has asked for the public’s help in identifying one of the BLM insurrections who attacked a police officer and is offering a reward, the national media has not picked up the story the way that it did when there was an effort underway to identify the Capitol rioters, nor has the FBI taken to buying billboards asking anyone who knows the thug for tips.

Fighting with a police officer in January was profoundly morally different than doing so in April. 

That’s all the more striking since the D.C. Metro police force is 52% black, while the Capitol Police are 29% black. Black lives don’t matter when they’re also blue. Just ask Captain Dorn.

Only a handful of months after the media agonized over the spectacle of a riot in D.C. and our political class acted as if fights between protesters and police was some inexplicably horrifying event, worse than 9/11 and Pearl Harbor put together, instead of the top outdoor sport of 2020, it’s okay to riot in D.C., assault government buildings, and call for burning them down.

It’s fine to brandish axes, throw fireworks, and assault police officers for social justice.

None of the handful of BLMers and Antifa who have been arrested will have their ugly faces splashed across social media, be fired from their jobs, or face the threat of decades in prison.

Insurrection is once again no longer a crime in America. 

Scenes in which BLM insurrections "lobbed a large firework that exploded amid the police line" and "tossed debris, including water and water bottles" at police was, according to the Washington Post, merely a skirmish. There’s no particular interest in how the cops are doing. Having fireworks and debris thrown at you is just part of the job of coping with social justice.

It was also safe for Rep. Maxine Waters to head down to Minnesota and incite violence by telling BLM race rioters to "stay on the street", fight, and "get more confrontational" if the half-minority George Floyd jury didn’t find a police officer guilty of Floyd’s overdose death. 

Brooklyn Center is a long way from Maxine’s California mansion (well outside the impoverished district she claims to represent), so she wasn’t visiting her constituents. But the Democrat Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee doesn’t have to worry that any of the Wall Street companies she regulates will stop donating to her over her incitement to violence.

Waters regularly wins every election with at least 70% of the vote, but has nonetheless raised and spent nearly $2 million. And Wall Street isn’t about to cut off the insurrectionist’s cash flow.

After the Capitol Riot, MetLife announced that “the board of MetLife’s Political Action Committee (PAC) is reviewing all of its guidelines and giving to ensure that they are consistent with the company’s purpose and values” and that “one of our guiding principles will be to support candidates who uphold our values and the rule of law.” MetLife has been a Maxine donor.

Will MetLife continue donating money to Rep. Maxine Waters after she incited violence?

Don’t bet against it.

No one in the media is calling the latest outburst of Black Lives Matter rioting, even when it targets D.C. police officers and takes place in D.C., an insurrection. The city has asked the National Guard to be ready to provide assistance, but the national media is carefully overlooking the fact that the first time troops have been needed to deal with actual violence in D.C. since Biden took office has been in response to violent race riots by a Democrat political movement.

If it’s not an insurrection, then what is it? Following the AP Stylebook definition, some media outlets are calling it an “uprising”. What’s the difference between an insurrection and an uprising? Much as with the famous quip, “none dare call it treason”, it’s a question of power. 

Challenges by Republicans to Democrat power are an “insurrection”, while Democrat riots are an “uprising” meant to seize power. The difference is not in the substance of the violence, but in the morality of who has power. Democrats and their media believe that Black Lives Matter race riots are righteous, while protests over a rigged election are not. Just as doxxing, election fraud, and cancel culture are right or wrong depending entirely on their practitioners and targets.

The only rule is that leftist power is moral and everyone else’s power is immoral. Everything needed to rectify a leftist imbalance of power, from violence to election theft, is justified.

If an anti-government riot in the nation’s capital that attacks government buildings isn’t an insurrection, then what is it? It’s whatever euphemism the media uses to glamorize it.

“Focusing on rioting and property destruction rather than underlying grievance has been used in the past to stigmatize broad swaths of people protesting against lynching, police brutality or for racial justice, going back to the urban uprisings of the 1960s,” the AP Stylebook had argued.

We heard a great deal about the “ransacking” of Pelosi’s office during the Capitol Riot. The focus on “rioting and property destruction” there was justified because the AP didn’t agree with the politics of the rioters. But when the AP and the rest of the media does agree with the politics of the rioters, then it’s important to ignore the violence and focus on the rightness of the cause.

The police and other law enforcement officers caught in the middle of the riots are confused because they’re never sure if they’re supposed to stop a riot or kneel to the rioters.

The Bidenite military leadership just disciplined soldiers who had flown choppers too low down to the crowd of rioting Black Lives Matter insurrectionists who had set fire to a church and the White House gatehouse during the BLM riots over the summer. The media accused the military of being tinpot fascists out to terrorize a mostly peaceful uprising and their arson attempts.

"Immediately after this event, we instituted a very strict ... approval process for the use of the National Guard, not just [for] the Metropolitan Police Department, but any agency that is requesting them," an Army official said

And then when the Capitol Riot happened, and the National Guard, which had by the orders of the D.C. government, been relegated to unarmed traffic control, didn’t arrive right away, the media once again howled holy hell, this time because there weren’t choppers and soldiers. 

But that’s because the National Guard wasn’t using the AP’s stylistic spinbook. 

Under Biden the mostly peaceful race riots, the uprisings, or insurrections, by any name, are back. After the worst part of a year in which the Biden regime decided to keep thousands of troops in the city for political theater, the National Guard is actually needed to keep the peace.

The BLM mobs are shooting off fireworks at police, shining lasers in their eyes, throwing debris at them, and shouting, “If we don't get it, burn it down!" 

But that’s not an insurrection.

It’s an insurrection when the rioters are out of power. When the rioters have the White House, the Justice Department, the House and the Senate on their side, it’s not an insurrection.

Just like the Nazi brownshirts or the Maoist Red Guard, BLM is now a form of state terror.

Criticizing BLM is Unforgivable, Killing Jews is Understandable

The twisted campaign against the Zionist Organization of America

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

In 2019, Rina Shnerb, a 17-year-old girl who had been hiking in Israel with her father and brother, was blown up by a bomb. Rabbi Eitan Shnerb, who ran a charity that handed out clothes and food to the poor, had enough time to kiss Rina on the forehead before she died.

"I will say of the LORD, who is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust," the Rabbi at her gravesite chanted the words of Psalm 91. "Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and see the recompense of the wicked."

Abdel Razeq Farraj, who was indicted for authorizing the attack, had been named as a career PFLP terrorist who had served 6 years in prison and had been arrested six times. The year that Rina was murdered, Farraj took part in an Adalah youth event in partnership with a PFLP affiliate.

Adalah is one of the anti-Israel hate groups funded by the New Israel Fund (NIF).

According to an NGO Monitor report, the NIF has directed $720,481 to Adalah. George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, who has also funded J Street, is another major donor.

Last fall, Beth Badik, a J Street supporter who serves on the regional committee for the anti-Israel NIF, and Barbara Penzner, a Reconstructionist cleric who had signed a J Street petition opposing a ban on BDS and another calling for engagement with a terrorist government, demanded that the Jewish Community Relations Council of Boston kick out the ZOA.

The Zionist Organization of America is the country’s leading pro-Israel group so Badik and Penzner’s animosity toward it and to Morton Klein, its unapologetically pro-Israel leader, was understandable. The anti-Israel Left had spent generations trying to seize control of the organizational establishment of the Jewish community in order to cut off support to Israel.

And they didn’t have far to go.

Badik, who is a supporter of one anti-Israel group and affiliated with another, also sits on the  JCRC of Boston's Israel & Global Jewry Committee. 

What was bizarre was the accusation in Badik and Penzner’s op-ed, “We’re Calling for ZOA to Be Kicked out of Boston’s JCRC”, the petition backed by J Street, the NIF, and a number of other anti-Israel groups, and the JCRC’s final response affirming the bizarre accusation that Morton Klein, the son of Holocaust survivors, was supporting white supremacists.

Their evidence was that Klein (pictured above) has called Black Lives Matter “a Jew-hating, White hating, Israel hating, conservative Black hating, violence promoting, dangerous Soros funded extremist group of haters” and correctly noted that its ranks are “filled with hatred against Jewish people.”

Not only had the Boston JCRC and Jewish organizations failed to condemn the BLM riots which had vandalized synagogues and assaulted Jews, especially in the Fairfax Pogrom in Los Angeles, but they had decided to treat criticism of the black supremacist hate group as racist.

If the Boston JCRC had any standards, it’s the anti-Israel organizations calling for ZOA’s removal which should have been condemned and kicked out of any Jewish community alliance.

Beginning with J Street.

Rep. Ilhan Omar had attended J Street’s gala dinner and praised an exhibit smearing Israel. It’s chosen to honor Jimmy Carter who had falsely accused Israel of being an apartheid state.

While the anti-Israel groups were attacking the ZOA for opposing BLM, neither they nor the Boston JCRC seemed particularly interested in actually defending Jews against antisemitism.

The anti-ZOA petition was obsessed with social justice, election integrity, and the other shibboleths of a leftist establishment that is incapable of actually talking about Jewish issues as an end, not a means.

J Street, which was behind the petition, had defended Rep. Ilhan Omar, even as ZOA and Klein had condemned her antisemitic tweets. Just as J Street has called for making a deal with Hamas. The J Street campaign to oust the ZOA attacked it for condemning George Soros while neglecting to mention that Soros had been a major funder of the anti-Israel organization.

If JCRC Boston and J Street consider Klein’s statements provocative, what of Soros’ belief that the "resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe" is caused by Israel and that the “attitudes toward the Jewish community are influenced by the pro-Israel lobby’s success in suppressing divergent views.” What are these except typical antisemitic tropes and defenses of antisemitism?

Has J Street ever been asked to condemn these statements by its own backer?

And if “rhetoric that has been associated with antisemitic tropes” is a cause for expulsion, then how can the Boston JCRC justify letting any Soros-funded group remain in its umbrella group?

And it gets worse.

The Boston Workmen’s Circle, one of the groups petitioning to kick the ZOA out, proudly notes in its own literature that members of the Workmen’s Circle included Communists and that “The first member expelled from the Workmen’s Circle was kicked out in 1901 for working on behalf of the Republican Party.” A member of the group recently wrote an angry open letter to Chelsea Clinton celebrating the fact that one of her heroines was a Marxist and a Communist. 

Even though the Communists killed countless Jews and ethnically cleansed the Jewish communities under their rule, forcibly closing synagogues, imprisoning and killing Rabbis, and banning the entire Hebrew language, that doesn’t get you condemned by the JCRC.

The BWC even held an event featuring "longtime BWC member Alice Rothchild".

Rothchild is a radical anti-Israel activist who is a member of the anti-Israel JVP BDS hate group that was considered too extreme even for the Boston JCRC. 

Rothchild has described herself as a "self-hating Jew", falsely claimed that “the anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism that can now be found in Muslim countries began almost entirely with the founding of the State of Israel", and posted on an antisemitic site that, “If I believed in a wrathful God, I might wonder why the Jewish National Fund forests were burning?"

"Hamas has produced horrific suicide bombers and incredible social service agencies building schools and hospitals and caring for the forgotten population. Hamas grew out of a response to Israeli oppression during the First Intifada," Rothchild was quoted as saying.

According to the JCRC, uplifting the voices of the worst sorts of deranged antisemitism from the Left isn’t a problem, but Morton Klein condemning BLM, Soros, and other Jew-haters is a crisis.

The Badik and Penzner op-ed argued that failing to kick out the ZOA would “convey an astonishing lack of empathy, decency and basic compassion, for people of color, for immigrants and Muslims”. The only astonishing thing here is the utter lack of interest in Jewish interests by leftist activists who claim to be Jewish and even more falsely to speak on behalf of Jews. 

Where is their basic compassion, their empathy and decency toward the Jewish synagogues and small businesses hatefully assaulted by Black Lives Matter rioters, and for the Jews of Israel living under the shadow of Islamic terrorism?

The New Israel Fund, in which Badik plays a role, and which is one of the leftist groups that demanded the expulsion of the ZOA, has funded BDS organizations and groups linked to terrorism. The lack of basic compassion, empathy, and decency that is required to be a member of the New Israel Fund is astonishing. As is the disinterest from the Boston JCRC.

Criticizing Black Lives Matter is unforgivable no matter how many synagogues they trash, but Jewish lives are worthless to organizations with ‘Jewish’ in their names, but not their hearts.

Welcome to Medellín, Minnesota, Where Elected Officials and Cops Are Afraid of BLM and Antifa Race ‘Cartels’~Seek to Ensure the City Will Burn by Crippling the Police Response

Well, folks, we’re here.

After years of pulling the threads from the Constitution and foundation of Western thought, telling ourselves it wouldn’t matter “this time,” or being shamed by our betters about the “fallacy” of the slippery slope, we’ve arrived to find our social fabric nearly undone.

It’s over there, a tattered, stringy mass lying on the floor.

The Third-Worlding of America is nearly complete. Colombia, here we come!

Let’s go over the bill of particulars in case you don’t think Medellín is in our future.

In recent years we’ve seen that the rule of law bends toward injustice. We’ve seen the legal system weaponized against a sitting president of the U.S.

Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill rioters are treated completely different than Seattle’s Capitol rioters.

People defending themselves from a mob are the ones who end up in jail.

If there’s a difference of opinion, people who believe in the wisdom of the Constitution and the rule of law are called names like fascist or nationalist. They are kicked off platforms that have replaced the public square.

If people in the favored crowds are called out for doing something wrong or the merely hypocritical, it’s the disfavored messenger who is shunned from the public square. Ask James O’Keefe or Jason Whitlock or the “terrorists” who supported President Trump or the people who were – oopsie – geotagged at the president’s speech on January 6th … by the cell phone companies and banks.

And now we’ve seen a “public servant,” a term I use loosely, openly admit that she voted to fire a guy rather than leave herself open to the hostility – or worse – from the narcos.

In America.

Last week after the Brooklyn Center police shooting of Daunte Wright, there were the familiar riots, looting, arsons, and unrest in response. It’s understandable. After all, one needs a big-screen TV or jacked cellphone for “justice.

The police officer involved in the shooting, a 26-year-veteran, had mistaken her service weapon for her taser and shot the suspect, who was fighting and fleeing the cops.

This, of course, occurred during the Derek Chauvin trial in nearby Minneapolis, which should have been moved from the areaas I explain in a recent piece in PJ Media. Chauvin is standing trial for the death of George Floyd, which has sparked endless riots, arsons, looting, and unrest.

And after the terrible news about Wright’s death, the mayor decided that everyone should be fired – the cops, the police chief and others.

Among the voices of reason was City Manager Curt Boganey, who said that before anything was done the cop needed due process.

And stating the 5th and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution was Boganey’s undoing.

The council voted to fire the – it seems appropriate to mention here – black city manager because he believes in the right to due process.

It’s not like it was for anything important that he lost his job. I mean, it’s not like due process is a big deal or anything.

The city councilor told the truth about the firing at a Zoom meeting later, as Legal Insurrection pointed out.

Brooklyn Center Council Member Kris Lawrence-Anderson, who voted to fire Boganey, explained that her decision to do so was based on fear of retaliation from the Black Lives Matter radicals who were wreaking havoc on the city:

At a virtual council workshop, Council Member Kris Lawrence-Anderson said she voted to remove the city manager because she feared for her property and retaliation by protestors if she had voted to keep him.

“He was doing a great job. I respect him dearly,” she said. “I didn’t want repercussions at a personal level.”

For those keeping score at home, the city manager was fired for standing by the fundamentals of affording the accused due process. At the same time, at least one council member openly admitted she cast her vote based solely on what she thought the mob of rioters might do to her or her property if she voted in a way that displeased them.

“I didn’t want repercussions at a personal level.” Great job, Minnesota! What a profile in courage she is. She was concerned about BLM and antifa going all primeval on her ass, so she tossed due process under the bus.

It looks like the wrong guy got fired here.

When antifa and BLM stir as much fear as Pablo Escobar and his henchmen, which prevents you from doing your damned job and following the Constitution, we’ve arrived at Banana Republic status.

Welcome to Medellín, Minnesota, where judges, elected officials, and cops are afraid of the race cartels.

Minneapolis Seeks to Ensure the City Will Burn by Crippling the Police Response

The Minneapolis City Council, in an unbelievable move, given the powder keg on their doorstep, voted 11-1 to oppose the use of tear gas and other non-lethal munitions in response to civil disorder. It would be fair to wonder if someone dropped these 11 elected leaders on their heads as children. In the last 48 hours, we have had a sitting member of Congress, Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), inciting violence if former officer Derek Chauvin is convicted of murder, and two National Guardsman injured in a drive-by shooting. The Chauvin trial is in closing arguments, and the jury is expected to begin deliberating with the threat of mob justice over their heads.

Luckily, this vote is, to some extent, worthless virtue signaling. Mayor Jacob Frey controls the Minneapolis Police Department, which he completely demoralized and ruined during last summer’s riots. Hopefully, he will ignore the insane members of the city council. Governor Tim Walz has activated 3,000 members of Minnesota’s National Guard in advance of the verdict, which is a significant improvement over his lag in doing so last year.

The council members don’t see it that way. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison’s son, Councilman Jeremiah Ellison, voted to oppose Walz’s move.

Council Member Jeremiah Ellison accused Gov. Tim Walz and law enforcement officials of approving “indiscriminate assaults, gassing, and arrests of protesters” in the name of protecting property.

“We’re just going to pump people full of fear and say, ‘Trust us, we got it. It doesn’t matter how many chemical irritants we use, and it also doesn’t matter whether or not it works,'” Ellison said.

His perspective is no surprise since the younger Ellison openly tweeted his support for antifa last summer. He was challenging the idea that antifa was involved in the destruction that took place. City Council President Lisa Bender described the vote as “a statement of the values of the City Council.” You may remember Bender from this insane segment on CNN where she was explaining how Minneapolis would defund the police and “reimagine” public safety:

The  Chauvin trial is wrapping up just as another officer-involved shooting in Brooklyn Center, Minn., just outside Minneapolis, reinvigorated rioting and looting across the metro area. One hundred rioters were arrested Saturday night near the Brooklyn Center police station. Emotions throughout metropolitan Minneapolis are running high, and the soft bigotry of low expectations among the city and state leaders is on full display. They are resigned to the violence that will follow the verdict no matter what conclusion the jury comes to. With such a stunning closing argument, it does not seem likely they will deliver the murder conviction Maxine Waters demanded:

How resigned are they? Minneapolis Public Schools will move back to distance learning on Wednesday after being out of school for over a year. Middle school students were scheduled to return for the first time this week, and many will not. Families are also losing all before and after school care provided by the school district for elementary students, and no athletic events will be held.

Not only did the council members take an emotional vote to signal they want police officers defending life and property to have no effective crowd control munitions. They also unanimously voted to develop an unarmed traffic enforcement division that is not part of the Minneapolis PD. Meanwhile, they tolerate a no-police autonomous zone in the area where George Floyd died. Record levels of violence and crime in the space taken over by militants earned the area FBI monitoring in March.

Minneapolis is headed down the same path as Portland, which experiences nearly nightly riots that have escalated to frequent arson attempts. They learned nothing from the CHAZ in Seattle or the Red House in Portland. How many of our once-thriving urban centers will have to descend into Gotham-level insanity due to the threats of mob justice? That Americans are accepting it is beyond astonishing.

 

Maxine Waters INCITES VIOLENCE as Calls for Her IMPEACHMENT SURGE!!!

★★★ YOUR PATRIOT PATH TO FREEDOM! ★★★

The ultra-left Maxine Waters is being accused of inciting violence as calls for her impeachment explode! In this video, we’re going to look at the latest insanity coming from the radical activist disguised as a politician, how Republicans across the nation are pushing back against her reckless rhetoric, and how cultural Marxism has come to infest so much our political climate; you are NOT going to want to miss this!

Judge Overseeing Chauvin Trial Blasts Waters' 'Abhorrent' Comments

EXCERPTS:

The judge overseeing Derek Chauvin’s trial for murder on Monday blasted “abhorrent” Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters for comments over the weekend urging protesters to “get more confrontational” if Chauvin is not convicted for George Floyd’s death and said her words could be grounds for the defense to appeal a verdict.

Waters, D-Calif., over the weekend told reporters that protesters needed to “stay on the street” demanding justice until there is genuine police reform. She also said if Chauvin is not found guilty, "we've got to stay on the street, and we've got to get more active. We've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

The congresswoman also vowed to “fight with all of the people who stand for justice," adding, "We’ve got to get justice in this country, and we cannot allow these killings to continue."

"Telling rioters who have burned buildings, looted stores and assaulted journalists to get 'more confrontational' is incredibly irresponsible.

 

NIGERIA: Muslims Needed a Mosque~The Catholic Church Built One for Them

Mbaka is an embarrassment to Catholic Church –Mamza, Adamawa ...

Although this happened in Nigeria, it is emblematic of what is happening all over the West today, including in the U.S. Non-Muslims are being generous, welcoming, and kind, without any particular concern for the possibility that not all of the recipients of their largesse might be interested in reciprocating their kindness. Bishop Stephen Mamza of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Yola, is building houses in Yola for people who have lost their homes due to jihad terror activity by the Islamic group Boko Haram, whose official name is People Committed to the Prophet’s Teachings for Proselytizing and Jihad. Since many of those displaced are Muslims whom Boko Haram didn’t think were Islamic enough, Bishop Mamza also built them a mosque. What could possibly go wrong?

In an interview Sunday in Nigeria’s Punch, Bishop Mamza explained that “at a certain stage we had over 3,000 people living on our church premises,” and “we thought of what we could do to improve their living standards.” Ultimately, with help from German backers, “we started last year in January the construction of 86 units of houses to be built for the 86 families still in our camp. On the housing estate, we built a church and a mosque and a school for the IDPs,” that is, Internally Displaced People.

Mamza maintained that building the mosque was a simple act of charity: “In the first place, when we played host to these IDPs, we did not discriminate against any one of them. We didn’t ask what religion the IDPs belong to; we didn’t ask for their church denomination; we just treated them as human beings who are in need of help, irrespective of their religion, denomination or tribe.” He explained that “if we were able to build houses for all of them, and also built a church for the Christians among them, then it is only a matter of justice and fairness that we also provide a space of worship for the few Muslims among them….I just felt that since we didn’t leave out the Muslims while providing food for the Christians or leave the Muslims out while building houses for the Christians, it is only just that we also build a mosque for the Muslims as we built a church for Christians.”

As good as this bishop’s intentions were, his gesture didn’t sit well with many Christians in a country where Islamic jihadis murdered a Catholic priest in March and burned a Catholic Church to the ground in February, and where jihadis killed 2200 Christians during 2020, an average of six every day. Would the mosque that Mamza built stop this jihad violence against Christians in Nigeria? Not likely. And so, Mamza recounted, “even from within, people did not see it as a good gesture, at all….Some of them even pointed out that the Boko Haram insurgents are Muslims and they have caused a lot of havoc for us; they ask, ‘Why should we even go ahead and build a mosque for them?’ But I say, ‘Well, not all the Muslims are Boko Haram (members), not all of them (Muslims) are evil. Those that I know, that we have been living together and taking care of them for the past seven years, I know them to be good. So, there should be no reason why I should discriminate against them. I think that is the reason we built the mosque.’”

Of course, that is true that not all Muslims are evil. It is odd, however, for a Christian entity to spend money on building a structure in which congregants will be taught that Jesus is not the Son of God and belief in the Trinity is “excess” (Qur’an 4:171, 19:35), and that Jesus was not crucified (Qur’an 4:157), and that those who believe in the divinity of Christ (that would include Bishop Mamza) are unbelievers (Qur’an 5:17), and that those who (like Bishop Mamza) believe that Jesus is God’s Son are accursed (Qur’an 9:30), and that Christians who do not accept Muhammad and the Qur’an must be fought against and subjugated under Islamic hegemony (Qur’an 9:29).

Also, a hadith has Muhammad predicting that Jesus will return at the end of the world and break the cross, as it is an insult to Allah’s power to say that he would have allowed one of his prophets to be crucified: “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, ‘By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, son of Mary [Jesus] will shortly descend amongst you people [Muslims] as a just ruler and will break the Cross and kill the pig and abolish the Jizya [a tax taken from the non-Muslims, who are in the protection, of the Muslim government]. Then there will be abundance of money and nobody will accept charitable gifts.’” (Bukhari 3.34.425)

So Bishop Mamza’s gesture is beautiful, but it may also be dangerous: The jihadis who attack his own people could be incited in the mosque he built. Also, if the situation were reversed, would the Muslims build a church? Of course not. There is no chance of that whatsoever.

Now, all that may not be probative for Bishop Mamza. He is a Christian cleric, and Christians are taught to “love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them, expecting nothing in return” (Luke 6:35). Very well. Still, in building a house where essential doctrines of Christianity will be denied, and the congregation will be exhorted to fight against Christians, subjugate them under Sharia, and make them pay the jizya (Qur’an 9:29), is Bishop Mamza being loving to his Christian flock by building this mosque? Does he have any obligation of charity to the Christians, or only to the Muslims? Well, what would the Pope say? Given Pope Francis’ actions since he became Bishop of Rome, Bishop Mamza may be on the fast track to a Red Hat.

China sends largest air incursion into Taiwan; Lawmakers worldwide condemn attack on HONG KONG EPOCH TIMES free press; PRINTING MACHINES DESTROYED WITH SLEDGE HAMMERS

American and European politicians condemn attacks against The Epoch Times printing house in Hong Kong. This after masked men smashed computers and printing machinery. Beijing is boosting pressure on Taiwan. It sent a record number of warplanes flying near the island, the largest incursion to date. A bold photo message from the U.S. to communist China, warning the country's Navy not to step out of line. It was taken in the South China sea. Chinese authorities make over $800 in three minutes. And it's all thanks to a traffic camera and the regime's administrative power. And Australia’s new Defense Minister is taking a hard line against Beijing. He’s calling out the regime for cyberattacks against Australia.
