“The hospital discovered his social media rants and last year tried to fire Khass from his position as a pediatric resident, however, Khass took them to court and won his job back claiming the hospital wrongly fired him for violating his ‘freedom of speech.'”

That’s ridiculous. I’m a free speech absolutist, but there is no doubt that no one has the freedom or the right to call for harming other people. This man is supposed to be a doctor, but what will he do if he has a Jewish, Zionist, or Christian patient? He should not just be fired from New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital; he should be barred from practicing medicine immediately.

“‘Beat Up Zionists’: NY Doctor Tweets Violent Anti-Semitic Incitement, Permitted to Treat Jews,” by Yakir Benzion, United With Israel, September 13, 2020:

For the past two years New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital has been trying to fire a doctor with a history of posting anti-Semitic and violently anti-Israel messages on social media.

Next week, the hospital and Dr. Walid Khass will be back in court to address the doctor’s eight-year history of tweets denigrating Jews and calling for Israel’s destruction.

Before Khass was hired as a resident at the hospital, his reputation for virulently anti-Israel social media activity was known.

As far back as 2012, Khass tweeted “My beloved Palestine! Spit on you, Jew dogs!” His tweets continued as a medical student until his graduation from St. George’s University (SGU) School of Medicine in June 2019, reported Canary Mission, a watchdog organization that tracks anti-Semitism on campuses….

On August 1, 2014, Khass tweeted: “quran chapter 2 take not the christians and the jews for friends — I’m Muslim And Know This.”

On November 13, 2014, Khass tweeted: “Go Beat Up A Zionist, You’re Not You When You Don’t Beat Up A Zionist.”

His tweets are also racist including one on July 10, 2015, in which he said: “Israel Needs To Stop Payin Ethiopians To Pretend That They’re Jewish Just So They Can Have A Bigger Population.”

On February 9, 2017, Khass tweeted: “Trump Trust Me, The Only People Ruining Our Country Is The Zionist Israeli’s …. #FreePalestine.”

The Canary Mission website lists at least 57 tweets by Khass that call for violence, spread anti-Semitism, support the Hamas terror group, and spread hatred of Israel and calls for its destruction.

The hospital discovered his social media rants and last year tried to fire Khass from his position as a pediatric resident, however, Khass took them to court and won his job back claiming the hospital wrongly fired him for violating his “freedom of speech.”…

 

CONGRESSMEN & WOMEN FOR HAMAS

Rashida Tlaib and ‘useful idiots’ on parade at anti-Israel AMP conference.

Joe Kaufman, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is Chairman of the Joe Kaufman Security Initiative and the 2014, 2016 and 2018 Republican Nominee for U.S. House of Representatives (Florida-CD23).

As Progressives continue to make the vilification of Israel a core issue for the Democratic Party, members of Congress continue to line up to embrace the hate. On Tuesday, September 15th, American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) will be sponsoring an online virtual advocacy event (‘Palestine Advocacy Days’) featuring at least five US Representatives. But this is not just an exercise in demanding "Palestinian rights" or supporting the toxic BDS calls for boycotting Israel. AMP is rooted in Hamas, and its leadership does not shy away from its roots, so having numerous Congressmen and women involved in this type of event is beyond outrageous.

Created in 2006. AMP was the byproduct of now-defunct groups that made up the US Palestine Committee, a terror umbrella organization led by then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook. As such, the group celebrates violence against Israelis. During its January 2018 ‘JERUSALEM IS A RED LINE’ rally, AMP repeatedly led chants of “Long live Intifada” – Intifada meaning Palestinian violent uprising. AMP’s Chairman, Hatem Bazian, who also founded Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), notoriously called for an American intifada, at an April 2004 rally in San Francisco. Citing uprisings in “Palestine” and Iraq, he asked, “How come we don't have an intifada in this country?”

One AMP board member, Salah Sarsour, allegedly had involvement with Hamas, itself. According to a December 1998 Israeli Police memo, Salah’s brother Jamil Sarsour, in the course of an interview, claimed that Salah was involved with Hamas and did fundraising for Hamas via the Palestine Committee’s Holy Land Foundation (HLF). Jamil also claimed that Salah had plotted an attack on Israel, as revenge for the September 1998 killing of Salah’s friends – Hamas military wing Qassam Brigades leaders and brothers, Imad and Adel Awadallah – by Israeli soldiers. Previously, Salah had spent eight months in a Ramallah prison.

AMP is a part of the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). Sitting on the board of USCMO is Mazen Mokhtar, a former US-based administrator for qoqaz.net, a now-defunct al-Qaeda recruitment/financing site. Mokhtar, who has spoken at AMP events, has called Hamas acts “heroic” and suicide bombings “an effective method of attacking the enemy.” Also on the board is Siraj Wahhaj, a Brooklyn, New York imam who was cited by the US government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Wahhaj has been linked to the bomb maker of the attack, Clement Rodney Hampton-El, and has praised the spiritual leader of the attack, Omar Abdel Rahman.

Representing AMP on USCMO’s Board of Directors and speaking at Tuesday’s virtual advocacy event is AMP Executive Director Osama Abu-Irshaid, who, last month, called Muslim leaders, who support UAE peace with Israel, “dirt bags” and “traitors.” Prior to AMP, he served as editor of Al Zaytounah, the official newsletter of the Palestine Committee’s Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP). This past January, Abu-Irshaid stated at an AMP event, “Palestinians, if they don’t take what they want willingly, they will take it forcefully. We promise you this, we’re going to liberate our land and we’re going to liberate our people, whether they like it or they don’t like it. Well, they have picked the wrong enemy!”

Also speaking at the AMP’s virtual advocacy event is PLO Executive Committee Member Hanan Ashrawi. Under the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1987, which is still law, the US government designated the PLO a terrorist organization and a threat to America. Ashrawi, herself, has been labeled an “apologist for terror.” During a November 1991 interview with the New York Times, Ashrawi dismissed Palestinian terror as “essentially a human voice” and a “cry from the heart.” She said, “Desperate people commit desperate acts.” In May 2019, Ashrawi’s American visa was rejected and she was denied entry into the US.

Another speaker at AMP’s event is Muslim activist and National Committeewoman for the Florida Young Democrats (FYD) Rasha Mubarak. Mubarak has made a number of statements claiming that Israel, a sovereign nation, has no right to self-defense, and she has attacked prominent figures on social media for saying otherwise. In November 2012, Mubarak tweeted, “Lies I’m tired of hearing, Israel has the right to defend herself.” She has posted pictures of Hamas celebrations, and she has had involvement in Hamas-related groups, CAIR and Islamic Relief. This past July, Mubarak retweeted an infamous call for violence in the US made previously by 60s radical, Kwame Ture.

One would expect people like Abu-Irshaid, Ashrawi and Mubarak to speak at such an incendiary event. They have all been associated with groups linked to terror. However, what you do not expect is for members of US Congress to be featured with them. Yet, this is exactly what is happening on Tuesday. At least five US Representatives will be featured at the AMP virtual advocacy event. They include: Betty McCollum (D-Minnesota), Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan), Donald Payne Jr. (D-New Jersey), Debbie Dingell (D-Michigan), and Judy Chu (D-California). While AMP is working to mainstream Hamas in America, these representatives are helping in the process.

It is no secret that many of these Congressmen and women embrace and enable Islamic extremism. This infiltration of Islamists into the highest levels of the US government – allowed by our nation’s representatives using their positions to sabotage American values – is a page taken straight out of the Muslim Brotherhood's playbook on how to destroy America from within. Non-Muslim leftist allies are pandering to their Muslim constituencies by working with pro-terror groups, like AMP.

In the interests of national security, these government officials need to cancel their speaking engagements for this event and, instead, denounce AMP and call for the group’s closure. They took a Congressional oath “to protect America from all enemies both foreign and domestic,” and they need to make clear to the American people whose side they are on. Choosing to speak at an AMP event says it all.

A Catholic church in New York City has replaced Jesus on their altar with graven images of their new “martyred saints” of “racial injustice” and has offered a prayer to their god for their commitment to their new religion of “racial equity.”

The Reverend, Kenneth Boller, SJ of St. Francis Xavier in NYC offered a prayer to commit the church to acknowledge their “white privilege,” fight against “racial injustice,” promote “racial equity,” and to “strive to eliminate racial prejudice from your thoughts and actions so that you can better promote the racial justice efforts of our church.”

On the altar, instead of Jesus, you can see pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery — all people who have been hailed as martyrs for the cause of “racial justice” by Marxist revolutionaries. Churches, too, have embraced this religion.

Just to be clear, the Roman Catholic Church removed Jesus from their altar long ago and replaced Him with an idol of self-sufficiency, works righteousness, and sacerdotalism. To the Roman Catholic, the cross is insufficient to remove the guilty stains of sin from the sinner and their religion requires an endless cycle of confession and penance, continually moving one from a state of grace to a state of damnation. Salvation is never secure. So, it should come as no surprise that these churches take the same approach to the history of racism in this country. To them, the stain hasn’t been — and never can be — fully removed and thus requires endless acts of penance and restitution on behalf of their ancestors who may or may not have committed the sin of racism.

But this religion isn’t unique to the Roman Catholic Church. An increasing number of Evangelical churches, including Southern Baptist and Presbyterian churches, are embracing this new religion. “Racial justice” has become a recurring theme at Evangelical meetings and sadly, the majority of Evangelical leaders are pushing the exact same theology.

OHIO: MUSLIM DOCTOR WHO VOWED TO GIVE JEWS “WRONG MEDICINES” FINALLY HAS HER MEDICAL LICENSE REVOKED

I called for the revocation of her medical license back in January 2019. In the Hippocratic Oath, doctors pledge that they will “do no harm or injustice” to their patients. Kollab not only repeatedly expressed her vehement hatred for Jews, but actually stated explicitly that she would give them the wrong medicine in order to do them harm. Her license should have been revoked immediately. But better late than never.

“Ex-Cleveland Clinic resident makes antisemitic posts, has license revoked,” by Rachel Wolf and Marcy Oster, JTA, August 22, 2020:

Lara Kollab, a former Cleveland Clinic resident, had her certification permanently revoked by The State Medical Board of Ohio on August 12 after making antisemitic social media posts, Cleveland.com reported. She is now “permanently prohibited from practicing osteopathic medicine or surgery in the state of Ohio, or from participating in another medical training program,” the website added.

In revoking her certificate, the board cited 11 posts she wrote from August 2011-September 2013, and a January 2012 tweet in which she wrote that she would give Jewish patients the wrong medication, Cleveland.com reported.

“hahha ewww.. ill purposely give all the yahood [Jews] the wrong meds…,” Kollab tweeted in January 2012.

When she was accepted to Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, a private Jewish university in New York City, she deleted the tweets and comments, but some were already preserved as screenshots.

In an August 2013 post, Kollab wrote in Arabic, “May Allah take back [end the lives] of the Jews so we stop being forced to go to those unclean ones.”

In December 2018, after the posts were discovered, Kollab was fired.

“This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018. She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic. In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system,” the Cleveland Clinic said in a statement at the time.

Kollab later apologized, saying that the posts “do not represent who I am and the principles I stand for today.”…

 

MICHIGAN: GROUND BROKEN IN RESIDENTIAL AREA FOR MEGA-MOSQUE THAT CHRISTIAN REFUGEES OPPOSED

Fox 2 Detroit claims, without evidence, that “some of the past opposition” was “sparked by islamophobia.” But in reality, “some residents previously cited zoning rules and the residential nature of the neighborhood.” However, Osama Siblani, publisher of The Arab American News, said: “I do not buy that, I think they were using it as an excuse.” For “Islamophobia,” that is.

Well, maybe they were using it as an excuse, and maybe there weren’t. But now the precedent has been set, with the help of the Justice Department: Muslims can build a mosque absolutely anywhere they want, including in quiet residential neighborhoods, and obliterate all concerns about zoning and parking and the character of the neighborhood by charging that all such concerns are just cover for “Islamophobia.”

Also, it wasn’t the racist, redneck, “Islamophobic” yahoos of Leftist media myth who were opposing this mosque. It was Iraqi Christian refugees, who know very well from bitter experience what a mosque in the neighborhood means for non-Muslims. But their concerns were also brushed aside. It was all “Islamophobia,” you see. The Justice Department said so.

 

“After years of roadblocks, ground finally broken on mosque in Sterling Heights,” FOX 2 Detroit, August 20, 2020:

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (FOX 2) – It has been a point of contention for years, but now a new mosque is under construction in Sterling Heights.

“My mother, her father is a World War I veteran and we love this country and everyone is entitled to freedom of religion,” said Faye Hashem. “As long as there is peace and love – that is all that matters.”…

Erecting a place of worship isn’t necessarily something you would gather media together for, but in this case controversy has surrounded building a mosque for years wiht [sic] some of the past opposition sparked by islamophobia….

“This is not about an Islamic center or a mosque it’s about our freedom of religion,” said Osama Siblani, publisher of The Arab American News.

Some community members have used every legal tool at their disposal to block the building. They were upset that Sterling Heights struck a deal with the US Justice Department to allow the mosque after the DOJ sued the city for not allowing the plan to proceed.

Some residents previously cited zoning rules and the residential nature of the neighborhood.

“I do not buy that, I think they were using it as an excuse and the federal government intervened and the victory here today, is that we’re building a mosque,” Siblani said.

The city manager, police chief, some city council members and Congressman Andy Levin (D-9th Congressional District) were in attendance.

“The story of AICC, is no different than my Jewish family’s story,” said Levin. “Sometimes there was controversy and sometimes we were not welcome, but in the end we all came together as Americans.”

JESUIT CATHOLIC FORDHAM UNIVERSITY: TRUMP DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION INVESTIGATING WHY CHINESE-AMERICAN STUDENT AUSTIN TONG PUNISHED FOR FIREARM PHOTO ON INSTAGRAM

Fordham student says school wrongfully penalized him for social media posts

SEE: https://www.dailywire.com/news/trump-administration-investigating-university-that-punished-chinese-american-student-for-firearm-photo-protesting-tiananmen-square-massacre;

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

In June, a Chinese-American student at Fordham University, Austin Tong, posted a photo of retired St. Louis police officer David Dorn, who was killed after defending a friend’s store from looters. The photo was accompanied by a note citing the “nonchalant social reaction” to Dorn’s murder. In addition, Tong posted another photo of himself holding a Smith & Wesson rifle pointed toward the ground with the photo captioned “Don’t tread on me #198964,” in reference to the Tiananmen Square massacre on June 4, 1989. That photo included emojis of the American and Chinese flags.

Tong had also posted statements including, “freedom comes from a strong and armed populace” and “Violence against any citizen should not be tolerated, and The Second Amendment protects us from that.”

The photos triggered the university to put Tong on probation.

Now the Trump administration’s Department of Education has launched an investigation into Fordham University. One department official told Campus Reform, “Of course, this raises questions about the influence of the Chinese government on American colleges and universities.”

The Department of Education sent a letter to Fordham University, which stated in part:

On the night of June 4, 2020, allegedly due to “multiple student complaints related to [Mr. Tong’s] social media posts,” including the claim that his posts were “grotesque” and “racist,” Fordham dispatched two uniformed public safety officers to visit Mr. Tong at his parent’s home in Long Island, New York. … Mr. Tong allegedly told the officers he purchased the rifle so his family would have protection from the threat posed by ongoing riots and social disorder in New York City …

Fordham deemed Mr. Tong’s constitutionally protected speech “a security threat” (emphasis added). Fordham apparently was concerned because “in referring to Black Lives Matter protests, [Mr. Tong] stated that he was ‘aware of the chaotic situation that needs me to keep (sic) family safe.’”

On July 24, the Dean of Students informed Tong that he was on probation because his social media posts violated university policy. He would need permission from the dean of students to enter the campus; he would need to undergo “bias training,” and he would need to compose an apology.

The university informed Tong he would have to complete his courses online. The university added that the sanctions were non-appealable.

Those actions prompted Tong to sue the school, claiming his First Amendment rights had been violated.

In its letter, the Department of Education noted:

In its Demonstration Policy, Fordham promises prospective students, their parents, and other potential consumers in the market for education certificates ‘[e]ach member of the University has a right to freely express their positions and to work for their acceptance whether they assent to or dissent from existing situations in the University or society. Fordham further promises not to infringe on students’ right “to express [their] positions” and engage in “other legitimate activities.”

However, Fordham fails to warn prospective students, their parents, and other potential consumers in the market for education certificates of their liability to potential discipline for the lawful off-campus expression of thoughts and constitutionally protected conduct that happens to be disfavored by Fordham’s education bureaucrats.

JOE BIDEN CONDEMNS ANTI-SEMITE, JIHADIST LINDA SARSOUR AFTER SHE APPEARS AT THE DEMOCRAT NATIONAL CONVENTION

The message here is completely and irreparably mixed, and that’s likely to be exactly how Democrat strategists want it. Bernie Sanders loves Linda Sarsour; she was even a surrogate for his campaign. Thus she had to appear at the DNC as part of ongoing efforts to keep Bernie’s base loyal and in line behind Biden. But then Biden condemned her so as to reassure the Jews and supporters of Israel who, apparently blind to what has been happening over the last ten years, still vote Democrat. But this strategy depends on no one noticing the contradictory messages.

“Biden Condemns Former Women’s March Co-Chair Linda Sarsour After She Appears At DNC,” by Thomas Catenacci, Daily Caller News Foundation, August 18, 2020:

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden condemned Linda Sarsour Tuesday after she appeared at a Democratic National Convention council meeting.

“Joe Biden has been a strong supporter of Israel and a vehement opponent of anti-Semitism his entire life, and he obviously condemns her views and opposes BDS, as does the Democratic platform,” Biden spokesman Andrew Bates said, according to CNN’s Jake Tapper. “She has no role in the Biden campaign whatsoever.”

Bates referenced the official Democratic platform, according to Tapper, which says, “We oppose any effort to unfairly single out and delegitimize Israel, including at the United Nations or through the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement.”

Earlier in the day, the Donald Trump campaign tweeted a video of Sarsour’s appearance at the DNC saying her “extreme bigotry is welcomed by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”…

 

MUSLIM YOUTUBERS ANNOUNCE PLANS TO SLAUGHTER APOSTATES

DELAWARE: HAMAS-LINKED “CAIR” SUES STATE DETENTION CENTER OVER SAFETY RELATED ISLAMIC HIJAB PROHIBITION

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2020/08/delaware-hamas-linked-cair-sues-state-detention-center-over-safety-related-hijab-prohibition;

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

The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed suit on behalf of these women. CAIR attorney Zanah Ghalawanji said: “No one should have to pick between their livelihood and their faith. By standing up for their rights and fighting back, Tia, Shakeya and Madinah hope that this agency will be prohibited from imposing this terrible predicament on other women in the future.”

However, the facility where the women worked say it was a safety issue, not one of discrimination against Muslims. “In a written statement at the time, officials in charge of the facility where the women worked said they were not trying to ‘stifle religious freedoms’ and that allowing exceptions to policy is complicated when the safety of staff and youth is impacted. ‘We must carefully balance our strong support of religious freedom with the need to keep youth and staff safe,’ the statement said. ‘In some instances, a person’s job may require them to do certain actions, such as the physical restraint of a youth, that makes wearing some religious clothing unsafe.'”

Safety concerns are of no interest to Hamas-linked CAIR. The idea behind all these suits is to establish and reinforce the principle that where Islamic law and American law conflict, it is American law that must give way. Also, many companies and institutions, wanting to avoid the hassle and negative publicity of a court battle, have settled for large sums just to make the thing go away. This kind of lawsuit is a reliable cash cow for Hamas-linked CAIR and its clients.

“Women sue state over workplace hijab prohibition; federal lawsuit claims discrimination,” by Xerxes Wilson, Delaware News Journal, August 14, 2020:

Three Muslim women who used to work at a state detention center for juveniles have filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against Delaware officials claiming they were barred from wearing religious head coverings at work.

The women, Tia Mays, Madinah Brown and Shakeya Thomas, claim nobody told them it was against policy to wear a hijab to work at the New Castle County Detention Center and Ferris School for adjudicated juveniles.

Once they began working for the state Department of Services of Children, Youth and their Families, which oversees the facilities, they were prohibited by supervisors from working at the center unless they removed their head coverings….

The lawsuit names the department as well as officials working in the department as defendants. A spokesperson for the department declined to comment on the litigation and said “we are dedicated to maintaining an inclusive environment for all.”

In Thomas’s case, she was told by a supervisor that she “had a few days to think about what she wanted to do — keep wearing her hijab or continue to be employed,” the lawsuit states. She was later told if  “she ever wanted to work for the State of Delaware in the future, it would be in her best interest to resign,” according to the complaint.

In Brown’s case, she continued to wear the hijab and was forced to clock out on some days. She continued to try to work, but was forced to go home on multiple occasions and ultimately was issued an ultimatum: stop wearing the head covering or resign.

One supervisor yelled, “Now you’re looking like a terrorist,” according to the her report filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a federal agency that administers and enforces civil rights laws against workplace discrimination….

In a written statement at the time, officials in charge of the facility where the women worked said they were not trying to “stifle religious freedoms” and that allowing exceptions to policy is complicated when the safety of staff and youth is impacted.

“We must carefully balance our strong support of religious freedom with the need to keep youth and staff safe,” the statement said. “In some instances, a person’s job may require them to do certain actions, such as the physical restraint of a youth, that makes wearing some religious clothing unsafe.”…

They seek back pay, financial damages and a court to order the state to institute a religious accommodation for Muslim workers to wear religious head coverings.

 

“ILHAN OMAR HAS ALMOST CERTAINLY COMMITTED THE MOST EXTENSIVE SPREE OF FELONIES BY A CONGRESSPERSON IN U.S. HISTORY

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2020/08/ilhan-omar-has-almost-certainly-committed-the-most-extensive-spree-of-felonies-by-a-congressperson-in-u-s-history;

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

Ilhan Omar will not be prosecuted, or even investigated. She can do whatever she wants. Why? Because she is a leftist, a black person, a woman, and a Muslim. Those are the groups that really have privilege in American society today. Those four aspects of Omar’s identity are the reasons why she will not be prosecuted. Anyone who dared to prosecute her would be excoriated in the establishment media as a racist “Islamophobe.” Few have the courage to stand up against that onslaught.

“Ilhan Omar must resign: New evidence from nearly three dozen Somalis reveals a probable spree of felonies,” by David Steinberg, The Blaze, August 10, 2020:

According to the media’s general judgment, 2020 U.S. voters are most concerned with purportedly complex issues of crime and justice. Voters should place no trust in this. This same media forbade itself to investigate a simple, yet objectively historic corruption scandal of national interest.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has almost certainly committed the most extensive spree of felonies by a congressperson in U.S. history. As a criminal, she also appears to be historically inept. Scores of verified items of evidence against her are in the public record. Omar has never challenged their authenticity and has never produced a single piece of evidence to support her version of events.

She faces a primary on Tuesday. She again won her party’s endorsement. She again won House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s endorsement — and her funding.

The mainstream media judges this remarkable situation to be irrelevant to Minnesota voters, let alone the dominant concern. Editorial malpractice on issues of crime, justice, and the 2020 election spreads everywhere this summer; by no coincidence, the spread can be traced to irresponsible media coverage of a deadly riot in Rep. Omar’s district.

Below are 32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence of Omar’s historic crime spree.

Above: One of many Somali-language tributes to “Colonel Nur Said Elmi,” Rep. Ilhan Omar’s father, sent from around the world by family, friends, and contacts following his tragic June 2020 death from a COVID-19 infection. As a high-ranking officer in Somalia’s (U.S.-backed) military from the 1970s until 1991, he was well known by this name and title.

In mid-June, Ilhan Omar’s father tragically died from a COVID-19 infection. Expressions of grief, condolences, and prayers arrived from around the world, but particularly from the Somali-speaking immigrant community of Minneapolis and from the U.K. By all accounts, he earned his reputation as a gentle, kind neighbor, well known and beloved within Cedar-Riverside, as he had been in Somalia.

His relevance to Rep. Omar’s landmark scandal is, of course, his birth name. Upon arriving in the United States in 1995, he claimed to be “Nur Omar Mohamed” and received a Social Security number with this name. However, all appeared to know him as Nur Said. He presented himself as Nur Said. Both Ilhan and her sister Sahra Noor referred to their father as Nur Said (prior to deleting the evidence). He is identified on-screen as “Nur Said, Ilhan’s father” in the 2018 documentary film “Time for Ilhan” and again as “Nur Said” in the credits. Twice.

Most importantly, British citizen Leila Nur Said Elmi declared her father to be “Nur Said Elmi, military officer on her 1997 marriage application. (Click the link to see the application and a photo of Leila Nur Said Elmi with both Ilhan and Nur Said.)

From 2009 until 2017, Ilhan Omar was married (by a Christian minister) to British citizen Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. Somali naming customs are patrilineal and do not use family surnames. For example, “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi” implies that Ahmed’s father is “Nur,” his grandfather is “Said,” and his great-grandfather is “Elmi.”

Also from 2009 until 2017, Ilhan Omar lived with, raised three kids with, and illegally filed multiple joint tax returns with a second man — not Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

Just a couple months after marrying, Ilhan and her legal husband both enrolled at North Dakota State University and received federal financial aid. Married couples are not required to submit evidence of their respective parents’ assets on FAFSA applications and thus likely receive much more favorable loan terms.

Almost certainly, Rep. Omar fraudulently married her brother, a British citizen, in the service of immigration fraud, education fraud, and federal student loan fraud. Along the way, she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, and possibly eight. She lived in several different subsidized housing units during this time. She likely received subsidized health care and child care during this time. For eight years, every application she signed for state and federal aid was likely fraudulent. During her 2017 divorce from Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, Ilhan submitted a nine-question statement to the court signed under penalty of perjury. Literally — she signed just below the statement of acknowledgment. Eight of her nine answers appear to be perjurious. Each instance is punishable by up to five years’ imprisonment.

The paperwork she signed for her successful 2016 run and two-year tenure as a Minnesota state representative may contain instances of perjury as well.

It appears that the media may be waiting for verifiable references to her father as “Nur Said Elmi” rather than “Nur Said.” Logically, this should not be considered necessary, considering the following:

  1. Ilhan’s father and her father-in-law would have been named “Nur Said.”
  2. Only one “Nur Said” in the necessary age range appears in publicly available archives in either the U.S. or U.K.

However, here these references are. Below are dozens of new, verifiable, archived references to father as “Nur Said Elmi” from family, friends, and contacts. You will also find many new references to his daughter Leyla Nur Said Elmi, his son Mohamed Nur Said Elmi, and even to his son Ahmed Nur Said Elmi…

 

MAINE: DEMOCRAT SENATE CANDIDATE SARA GIDEON REPEATEDLY KILLED “RACIST” BILLS TO OUTLAW FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION

This is where we have been heading for a long time, without anyone noticing, and now we are arriving. Opposition to female genital mutilation is “racist.” So also opposition to jihad violence and terrorism is “racist,” and so New York City dismantled a successful counterterror program. Soon any resistance to Sharia oppression and jihad violence will be utterly stigmatized — as it already is today to a tremendous degree. If this continues, resistance will even be criminalized.

Oh, and the rights of the girls who have to suffer this barbaric procedure? Why, speaking out for them is “bigoted” and “Islamophobic.”

Just imagine the soullessness this would require. Sara Gideon has never manifested any concern for the women and girls who have been condemned to lives of misery because of this practice. All she seems to care about is the naked pursuit of political power, no matter who gets destroyed in the process. This is the Left today.

“Maine Democrat Sara Gideon Killed Bills Outlawing Female Genital Mutilation,” by Yuichiro Kakutani, Washington Free Beacon, August 13, 2020:

Democratic Senate candidate Sara Gideon repeatedly killed bills to outlaw female genital mutilation during her tenure as the speaker of the Maine House of Representatives.

Gideon leveraged her leadership position in the Democrat-controlled legislature to kill two separate bills that would have criminalized the practice of severing the clitoris of infant girls and sewing their vaginas shut. Instead, the Democrat supported a different law that would have funnelled $150,000 to her political allies to educate Mainers about the practice instead of criminalizing it, according to a former state legislator who spearheaded the push to stop the mutilation.

Under Gideon’s leadership, Maine Democrats argued that the bill was racist toward the state’s large immigrant community from Somalia, a country where the practice is “nearly universal” according to the United Nations. The Democrats also argued that the practice rarely takes place in Maine and is already outlawed by existing federal and local laws.

Gideon’s efforts have helped make Maine one of only 12 states that have not banned female genital mutilation. Such a legacy threatens to complicate her cultivated image as a champion of women’s rights, one built on her consistent support for abortion access and the #MeToo movement. The image strategy has paid off, translating into hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations and outside money support from national pro-abortion groups. Gideon did not respond to a request for comment.

F. A. Cole, a survivor of female genital mutilation who testified before the Maine legislature, expressed deep frustration for the bill’s failure. “The Democrats, especially the Speaker of the House Sara Gideon, did everything she could in her power to just kill this bill,” she told the Washington Free Beacon. “I could not understand why.”

Female genital mutilation is an archaic cultural custom practiced in parts of the Middle East and Africa that the United Nations considers a violation of human rights. The procedure, which is done to discourage sex outside of marriage, causes numerous medical problems such as excessive bleeding, infections, difficulty passing urine, and sometimes death. A 2012 Public Health Reports study estimated that more than 500,000 women and girls were at risk for female genital mutilation or its consequences in the United States.

The controversy started in 2017, when Republican state legislator Heather Sirocki introduced a bill that made it a crime for parents to force their child to undergo female genital mutilation. Gideon and other Democrats initially cosponsored the bill, but soon Gideon embraced a different version of the legislation. The new version struck out all penalties for the practice and instead allocated $150,000 from the state coffers to fund educational outreach programs to educate Mainers about female genital mutilation. According to Sirocki, Democrats told her the money would go to the Immigrant Resource Center of Maine, a nonprofit group run by Gideon ally Fatuma Hussein.

“This bill was designed to funnel money to Fatuma Hussein’s Immigrant Resource network so they could educate the Somali community on why, ‘naughty naughty, it’s bad to cut your little girl’s genitals,'” Sirocki said. The nonprofit did not respond to a request for comment.

Gideon and House Democrats ultimately voted against the original version of the 2017 bill, leading to the bill’s failure. To justify their votes, some Democrats argued that existing federal and local laws already prohibited the practice—even though the Maine Prosecutors’ Association testified that they “do not feel confident that they can charge someone with committing Female Genital Mutilation without the passage of this bill.”…

 

ITALIAN OFFICIALS IGNORE WOMAN’S PLEA TO REMOVE SQUATTING, DOG EATING ISLAMIC MIGRANTS FROM HER PROPERTY

EXCREMENT EVERYWHERE!

A video translated by RAIR Foundation USA reveals a distraught woman in Lampedusa, Italy complaining about illegal migrants squatting on her land even after she repeatedly tries to report the problem to authorities. In addition to the “mattresses,” “bottles of alcohol,” and “excrement everywhere,” Rosy Matinais explains that the Muslim migrants have eaten all of her animals, including dogs, with the exception of pigs.

Ms. Matinais, a farmer who lives off the crops on her land, earns her living from raising farm animals. “They have eaten chickens, the goats, the dogs,” she said. “I can’t have any more animals. I only have pigs.” The illegal migrants ate four of her dogs by skinning them and grilling them, she explained.

According to Italian newspaper ilgiornale.it, her father purchased the property on the island in 1967. Lampedusa, Italy, at the southernmost part of Italy, has become an epicenter for the socialist-driven illegal migrant invasion. The tiny island, an Italian tourist destination, has a population of about 6,000. There have been times when the migrants outnumbered the citizens. Socialist Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte  “reversed [former Deputy Prime Minister Matteo] Salvini’s immigration stance when he came to power,” as reported at RAIR.

“I make reports to the Guardia di Finanza, the mayor [Totò Martello], the assessor, and the director of the center. You tell me if I can’t be the owner of my land?” she laments. Rosy’s requests for help have not only been ignored by politicians but also law enforcement officers.

The local report explained that the migrants harassed her and her daughter. “We asked the police for help,” she was quoted as saying. “They told us that migrants are untouchable. They do what they want ”

Rosy lamented that if her father was alive he would have “used the shotgun” on the migrants squatting on their property. She further expressed her anger at the Mayor Totò Martello for not helping the situation.

Despite ongoing reports of migrants eating citizens’ pets, the mayor posted on Facebook that her accusations are “fake news.” In the meantime, Rosy appears to be without her four dogs and has been abandoned by those elected to protect her.

As reported at RAIR last month, a 23-year-old migrant was scolded by a woman for skinning and cooking a cat openly on a sidewalk near the Campiglia Marittima train station Livorno, Italy. “This poor creature, look here, Shame! Shame! You should go back to your own country,” the woman exclaimed.

Hundreds of migrants have been landing daily in this beautiful Southern Italian coastal town that survives on tourism. Rosey and her native Italians have been failed by left-wing politicians pushing open border policies at all costs. Not only are these elected leaders turning a deaf ear to the unspeakable problems citizens are facing but they smear anyone who goes public with their stories.

GERMANY: MUSLIM MIGRANT STRANGLES HIS BABY’S MOTHER IN PART BECAUSE SHE HAD THE BABY BAPTIZED

If he is moved to murder by a baptism, what were the chances that Hamzar D. would ever have become a loyal, productive member of German society? But German authorities have no idea how many more are like him, because they wouldn’t dare ask the relevant questions. To do so would be “Islamophobic.”

“Killer strangled mother next to baby,” translated from “Killer erwürgte Mutter neben Baby,” by Thomas Knoop and Thomas Röthmeier, Bild, August 5, 2020 (thanks to Medforth):

Kiel – The act of madness took place in the hotel “Pelli-Hof” in Rendsburg: a mother (28) is strangled next to her baby. Now her killer describes the course of the night of death in the hotel room in the district court of Kiel.

The Tunisian Hamzar D. (25, convicted of violent offences) and Ann-Kathrin K. had met in a disco. The child, a boy, was born in July 2019. “But after birth, she changed,” says Hamzar D. There was a quarrel, then the break-up. He complains that the mother has long withheld his son from him, and then she has also made his boy a Christian.

Meetings with her escalated; there were blows, and then came to the ban on contact. Nevertheless, the two continue to meet. They spend the night on February 13 in the hotel room, drinking vodka and Red Bull – he says they had sex. Then her child wakes up, screams. The mother leaves the hotel room. He takes care of his son. He falls asleep.

D. discovered photos of men on his ex’s mobile phone. He freaks out, tries to hang himself with his belt in the bathroom, slashes his wrists and swallows up to 70 tablets.

Ann-Kathrin K. returns. There is a fight. He strangles her: “I just wanted her to be quiet.” The woman collapses. D. tries to resuscitate her, calls the ambulance service. Police detain the man. Her baby goes to a foster family.

The victim’s mother and sister were in the courtroom, hearing in shock the accounts of the night of her death.

The trial continues on 14 August.

 

EUROPEAN UNION PAYS MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD $43,320,000 TO “SUBJUGATE EUROPE”

This should come as no surprise, given the Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the West that many have been warning about, although those warnings have fallen on deaf ears.

Even in Canada and the U.S. (especially under Obama), many Muslim Brotherhood-linked organizations and people have influence and ties to high levels of the government, and this has been well noted. The Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism funding trial in the history of the U.S., designated a sizable list of Muslim groups as unindicted co-conspirators in the funding of jihad terror, linked to Hamas. Yet the obvious implications were largely ignored. Also ignored has been the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for North America:

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.

Despite this, Western leaders continue to embrace Muslim Brotherhood groups and individuals, selling out our free societies to the Muslim Brotherhood.

“Massive Scandal” – EU pays Muslim Brotherhood €36,5 Million to ‘Subjugate Europe,'” by Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, August 5, 2020:

The European Union paid €36.5 million to groups with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and whose agenda involves the Islamization of Europe, the right-wing I&D Faction in the European Parliament revealed.

“Apparently, the EU has been funding front organizations with our tax Euros which have close ties to extremist, terror-related organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood”, said EU parliament budget committee member Joachim Kuhs (I&D). “This is a massive scandal, and must be stopped immediately.”

FEMYSO in turn acts as a lobbying organization in Brussels , protesting against the new EU commission 2019, calling it “not diverse“ enough and therefor “far-right.“ So the EU is paying a Muslim Brotherhood front group via another NGO to lobby itself and accuse EU Commissioner Ursula von der Leyen of having “adopted steps within the rhetoric and direction of those who vilify the full diversity of Europe” which “feed into nationalist and fascist agendas.”

FEMYSO member organizations include Muslim Brotherhood spinoffs like the “Jeunes Musulmans de France”, “Young Muslims UK” and the “Islamic Foundation” in UK, as well radical Turkish NGO Milli Görus, which German political police refer to as “a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood“ that seeks to undermine the democratic constitution, and Muslim Youth in Germany (MJD), who have been under observation by German political police as a “danger to German democracy” for years. MJD organizes “regular appearances” by speakers with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and serves as “recruitment reservoir and talent pool for this Muslim Brotherhood influenced version of political Islam,” as the Bundestag Research Service wrote.

According to the EU Financial Transparency System 2014-2019, €5,139,569 went to Islamic Relief, another Muslim Brotherhood front group. German officials have accused Islamic Relief Worldwide of “significant” connections to the underground Muslim Brotherhood. “A submission to the Bundesrat revealed that the powerful Federal Court of Audit was examining official grants to Islamic Relief, which was founded in Birmingham, UK, that totaled €6.1 million in the years to 2016. The response said Islamic Relief was connected to Muslim Brotherhood groups not only in Europe but around the world,” The National writes…..

 

TRUMP WANTS BOSTON MARATHON BOMBER TO GET DEATH PENALTY~DEMOCRATS WANT HIM TO VOTE

My latest in PJ Media:

Judge O. Rogeriee Thompson, an Obama appointee to the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, on Friday overturned the death sentence of Boston Marathon jihad bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. President Trump is unhappy. Early Sunday morning he tweeted: “Death penalty! He killed and badly wounded many. Justice!”

Democrats, in contrast, appear to be fine with Thompson’s decision, as some Democratic leaders are on record saying not only that Tsarnaev should not be put to death, but that he should vote.

As far as Trump is concerned, this is still a live issue despite Thompson’s ruling. On Sunday afternoon he followed up his initial tweet with two more, saying: “Rarely has anybody deserved the death penalty more than the Boston Bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The court agreed that this ‘was one of the worst domestic terrorist attacks since the 9/11 atrocities’. Yet the appellate court tossed out the death sentence. So many lives lost and ruined. The Federal Government must again seek the Death Penalty in a do-over of that chapter of the original trial. Our Country cannot let the appellate decision stand. Also, it is ridiculous that this process is taking so long!”

Trump also took this question right to the Democrats, saying after the ruling was announced on Friday: “They protect criminals and Biden opposes the death penalty, even for cop killers and child murderers.” Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is a child murderer, as one of his victims in the Marathon bombings was an eight-year-old boy named Martin Richard.

But the Democrats nevertheless want Dzhokhar Tsarnaev alive, well, and voting a straight Democrat ticket. Back in April 2019, Bernie Sanders came out for restoring voting rights for convicted felons. He was asked if he believed that even “terrible people,” including convicted murderers such as Tsarnaev, should have the right to vote. Sanders was unequivocal: “Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, ‘Well, that guy committed a terrible crime, not going to let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not going to let that person vote,’ you’re running down a slippery slope.”

Vice Presidential contender Kamala Harris agreed, albeit somewhat more equivocally: “I think we should have that conversation,” she said, adding: “I have long been an advocate of making sure people formerly incarcerated are not denied the right to vote. In some states they’re permanently deprived of the right to vote.”

There is much more. Read the rest here.

 

ITALY: 11,000 MIGRANTS ARRIVE IN A SINGLE WEEK; OVER 130 TEST POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS

Italy’s former Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has been sharply criticized for his “nationalist,” “racist”  views, particularly when he warned that Europe risked becoming an “Islamic caliphate” given the flood of illegal migrants from North Africa. One of Salvini’s biggest supporters is Tony Iwobi, Italy’s first and only black senator. Although Iwobi is routinely slammed for his “populist” views, he hIas stated: “Anything I do today, I’m not doing for myself, but for the nation I represent and for the African black race!” He also argues that the League, a party routinely characterized in the establishment media as xenophobic, is not anti-immigration, and states: “We are for legal migration. Anybody who comes through the right channel in the legal way is highly welcomed. We are for refugees, but we are against illegal immigration.”

Italy’s current coalition government has implemented a suicidal immigration policy. It has lost control over the illegal migrants who are swarming in from North Africa. A few days ago, the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa ran out of room to quarantine an influx of Tunisian migrants in small boats. The island is at a loss due to sheer volume of illegal migrants flowing in. Also, several days ago it was reported that an estimated 11,000 migrants arrived in Italy in a single week! And in yet another report:

An estimated 134 migrants that the leftist government had relocated to a reception centre in northern Italy have tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus. The large coronavirus outbreak was reported in former barracks that have been converted into a migrant reception centre in the city of Treviso. A total of 134 out of 293 migrants tested positive for the virus.

Globalists have been claiming that since Western countries are experiencing diminished birthrates, the only option is to open the doors to anyone who wants to enter, regardless of the ideology or health status of the migrant, and regardless also of his or her motives. Jihadists who infiltrate the “refugee” stream are ignored. They’re even lost track of by increasingly by globalist governments. See HEREHEREHERE and HERE.

“Estimated 11,000 Migrants Arrived in Italy in a Single Week,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, August 1, 2020:

Italy has seen a surge in migrant arrivals in recent weeks, with as many as 11,000 arriving last week, half of them coming from Tunisia.

The Italian Interior Ministry released a statement this week saying: “Autonomous landings on the Italian coast have more than multiplied in a very short period of time.”

Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio went on to call for aid from the European Union, saying the bloc “must address this issue immediately” and work to redistribute the incoming migrants. Di Maio also noted the health risks due to the potential spread of the Wuhan coronavirus, Le Figaro reports.

Of the 11,000 migrants to arrive in Italy last week, many came by small boat. Around half of them came from Tunisia, most of them Tunisian citizens.

For those who come from Tunisia, the Italian island of Lampedusa, the part of Italy closest to the North African coast, is often their target. On Tuesday night alone, around 300 migrants arrived on the island in 13 small boats….

“Over 130 Migrants Relocated by Italian Govt Test Positive for Coronavirus”, by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, August 2, 2020:

An estimated 134 migrants that the leftist government had relocated to a reception centre in northern Italy have tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus.

The large coronavirus outbreak was reported in former barracks that have been converted into a migrant reception centre in the city of Treviso. A total of 134 out of 293 migrants tested positive for the virus.

Governor of Veneto Luca Zaia confirmed the cases this week, saying in comments reported by Il Giornale on Thursday: “There are more than 130, probably 134, positive migrants in the former Serena Barracks.”

The screening was prompted on Tuesday when one of the migrants fell ill and later tested positive for the Chinese virus. Tests were then extended to all the residents of the reception centre.

Just over a month ago, a Pakistani migrant living at the facility tested positive for the virus and was placed in solitary confinement for four days. He had allegedly initially hidden his symptoms by taking ibuprofen.

The new large number of coronavirus cases come as Italy has seen a surge in migrants arriving in the country, primarily from North Africa.

Former Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini slammed the government earlier this week on the risk of a fresh wave of coronavirus inspections that could be sparked by the high number of migrant arrivals.

“Landings have tripled since last year, with illegal immigrants being recovered even near Maltese waters, while Lampedusa is collapsing and hundreds of immigrants flee the reception centres who risk spreading Covid-19,” Salvini said.

The island of Lampedusa in the Mediterranean has been particularly overwhelmed, with arrivals of migrants becoming so frequent that it has been claimed that a new boat containing more migrants arrives every hour on average….

 

CORONAVIRUS SHOCK CLAIM: REFUGEE SCIENTIST SAYS VIRUS CAME FROM CHINESE ARMY LAB

Hong Kong-based virologist Yan Li-Meng, currently in hiding at an undisclosed location, claims that the COVID-19 coronavirus came from a People’s Liberation Army lab, and not from a Wuhan wet market as Beijing has claimed.

EconoTimes reports on Yan:

Speaking on a live stream interview on Taiwan’s News Agency Lude Press, she said, “At that time, I clearly assessed that the virus came from a Chinese Communist Party military lab. The Wuhan wet market was just used as a decoy.”

“I knew that once I spoke up, I could disappear at any time, just like all the brave protesters in Hong Kong. I could disappear at any time, even my name would no longer exist,” Yan said according to a translation.

Yan has been in hiding in the U.S. after fleeing Hong Kong in April. She last made waves in July after an interview with Fox News:

Yan told Fox News in an exclusive interview that she believes the Chinese government knew about the novel coronavirus well before it claimed it did. She says her supervisors, renowned as some of the top experts in the field, also ignored research she was doing at the onset of the pandemic that she believes could have saved lives.

She adds that they likely had an obligation to tell the world, given their status as a World Health Organization reference laboratory specializing in influenza viruses and pandemics, especially as the virus began spreading in the early days of 2020.

“The reason I came to the U.S. is because I deliver the message of the truth of COVID,” she said then, but today’s report is the first time Yan has claimed the coronavirus originated in a Communist China army lab.

Coronavirus Hackers
 (FBI press release)

 

Beijing’s Communist regime hasn’t exactly been making friends of late, going so far as to sic their impressive hacking community on coronavirus research labs last month in a state-sponsored effort to steal their work.

Coronavirus ‘Key Information’ Withheld by China, Leak Shows

“The China government refused to let overseas experts, including ones in Hong Kong, do research in China,” she told Fox News. “So I turned to my friends to get more information.”

There have long been rumors that the novel coronavirus might have begun as a bio-weapon, but Yan’s statement is the first time the claim has come from anyone who might have insider knowledge.

Back in February during the initial global phase of the coronavirus pandemic, Defense One reported that the PLA was “largely MIA” in fighting the outbreak.

At a moment when hospitals across China are posting cries for supplies on social media, the anemic response by the People’s Liberation Army calls into question some of its most lauded capabilities: powerful logistics and mass military-civil contingency response mobilization.

Defense One also reminded readers that “governments often mobilize military units” during a major crisis, and yet…

…the first group of PLA medical units began to arrive in Wuhan only on Jan. 24, nearly a month after the virus began to spread. They arrived in relatively small numbers: three medical teams were reported to have been sent from Shanghai, Chongqing and Xi’an, totaling 450 personnel. The subsequent lack of any major following deployment was striking, especially as needs ranged from supply to construction, such that regime officials even turned to making false claims of building hospitals in record time.

If you’re getting a little paranoid — and in 2020, who isn’t? — you might be thinking the PLA kept their hands off the virus during the outbreak because they had their hands dirty with it during its development.

We may never know the truth about the origins of the novel coronavirus, whether it was an army lab, bat soup, or something else.

But if people choose to believe the worst about Chinese Communist strongman Xi Jinping’s regime, he’ll have no one to blame but himself.

Finally, here is the 35-minute livestream, although it is in Chinese and there are no subtitles.

As the US becomes increasingly totalitarian, only one point of view is allowed in the public square, and that point of view is warmly positive toward Islam, with no criticism allowed. Criticism of Islam is also banned in Sharia.

“Facebook de-platforms page that shared videos of ex-Muslims talking about how they were persecuted after they left Islam,” OpIndia, July 28, 2020:

ExMuslim TV has been de-platformed with misplaced accusations of inciting violence and hate when all they do is post short videos of ex-Muslims narrating the persecution they face. It is unfathomable that individuals talking about how they are being threatened and shunned could ‘incite violence’ by any means, however, Facebook decided to de-platform them simply because they were talking about issues the Left prefers not being talked about.

Facebook, on the 27th of July 2020, unpublished a page on the social media platform called ExMuslim TV, that merely shared short videos of ex-Muslims and the persecution they faced by the community after they had left Islam. ExMuslim TV took to Twitter on Monday to talk about how Facebook was being unjust in banning their page.

Appealing to Facebook to reconsider their decision of banning the page, the Twitter page of ExMuslim TV said, “Our primary purpose is HUMANITARIAN. Most exMuslims who appear here are/were in danger. They either speak to ask for help or to bring hope to others like them”.

In the screenshots shared by the ExMuslim TV Twitter handle, it would appear that Facebook decided to unpublish the page because supposedly, the page went against their ‘incitement and violence’ standards. However, the page is only known the share videos of ex-Muslims who talk about their own ordeal in the videos. In most of the videos shared by the page, Muslims who had left Islam spoke about how they were hounded, persecuted and shunned by the Muslim community after their decision to leave the faith of Islam.

This is the message the Facebook page received before it was unpublished:

Facebook believed that ex-Muslims who had left the faith of Islam talking about their own persecution and appealing for help and understanding somehow posed a ‘genuine risk of physical harm or indirect threat to public safety’.

Further, Facebook informed the page that due to COVID, they have fewer reviewers onboard and hence, may not be able to cater to the appeal by the Facebook page. Essentially, this would mean that ExMuslim TV might not be able to appeal to the decision to unpublish the page by Facebook because the social media giant has fewer reviewers working due to the Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic.

Facebook has long been accused of harbouring a bias against anything that goes against the tenets of Liberalism and the Left. In fact, one must recall that recently, they had also released an ‘anti-conservative bias’ report that had made clear that Facebook indeed is biased against anything that goes against the Left and is seen to be remotely ‘conservative’.

With Social Media becoming an ideological battleground, it has often been noticed that platforms selectively target right-leaning platforms in an ad-hoc fashion. Not too long ago, Twitter CEO had “fully admitted“, the platforms “left-leaning” bias.

Facebook has too hugely limited the reach of several pages, many of which are right-leaning. The page owners strongly suspect that their reach is being limited because of the inherent left-bias of these platforms….

 

UK: MUSLIMS ASSAULT CHRISTIAN WOMAN FOR CRITICIZING ISLAM

Hyde Park’s Speakers Corner used to be a bastion of the freedom of speech. Now, however, Muslims have transformed it into a Sharia No-Go Zone, where criticism of Islam is often met with force.

Hatun Tash has been the victim of yet another assault by Muslims. Last week, Islamic apologist Ali Dawah caused her to fall to the ground; he was even happy about what he did, and his followers were also praising him and justifying his actions. Now his behavior last week has given the green light to Muslims to use more violence. In this video, Hatun Tash is thrown to the ground by Muslims because she was criticizing the Koran. The police are absolutely useless. Fortunately, there were some Christian men on the scene who protected Hatun. Had they not been there, she might have been severely injured.

The Koran states in surah 5:33: “This is the recompense of those who fight against Allah and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth to do corruption there: they shall be killed, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall be struck off on opposite sides; or they shall be exiled from the land. That is a degradation for them in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement”. In light of that, the treatment of Hatun in this video is only a foretaste of what is to come. This is just a glimpse of what the UK is becoming: a place where Muslims openly attack someone for criticising the Koran. Gradually, the UK and many other Western countries which are seeing a rise in their Islamic populations will become more like Sharia countries such as Pakistan, where calls for the death of blasphemers and the persecution of religious minorities are common, alongside other barbaric Sharia practices.

 

CHINESE IMMIGRANT AUSTIN TONG SUES JESUIT CATHOLIC FORDHAM UNIVERSITY FOR SANCTIONING TIANANMEN POSTS ON INSTAGRAM

Fordham University

A Fordham University student kicked off campus for posing with his legally owned firearm filed a lawsuit on July 23 alleging the school violated its commitment to free expression.

Rising senior Austin Tong, a Chinese immigrant who posted the picture in honor of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, filed a lawsuit against Fordham, the school's president, and the dean of students. The suit alleges the university violated its free expression covenant with students by disciplining Tong for "lawful, constitutionally protected, and non-threatening social media posts on Instagram."

"Fordham's policies and rules, as well as basic First Amendment jurisprudence, make it abundantly clear that uncomfortable or unpleasant impact on a speaker's audience is not a proper ground to restrain the speech in question," the lawsuit reads.

The suit calls on the school to annul all disciplinary sanctions, admit that Tong's social media posts are a permitted exercise of free speech under Fordham's speech code, and award relief for the breach of contract between Fordham and Tong.

In its mission statement, Fordham guarantees the freedom of inquiry among other freedoms, but the explicit promise of free speech can be found in the school's demonstration policy.

"Each member of the University has a right to freely express his or her positions and to work for their acceptance whether they assent to or dissent from existing situations in the University or society," the policy reads.

Tong was told in a disciplinary letter from the university that he cannot return to campus and must complete his degree online while his peers return to campus. Tong cannot hold a leadership position on campus, must write an apology note to the school, and must complete a bias training or face suspension or possible expulsion.

The lawsuit alleges the sanctions against Tong are "damaging and humiliating" for the student as well as "draconian." The disciplinary actions force Tong to choose between his beliefs and a degree from his university of choice.

"These sanctions have placed Tong in an untenable position," the lawsuit reads. "He must either (1) abandon his principled beliefs, forfeit his right to lawful expression, and submit to Fordham's unconscionable discipline, or (2) face suspension or expulsion from Fordham, which would severely damage his future academic and employment prospects."

Tong told the Washington Free Beacon he believed he had a good relationship with dean of students Keith Eldredge before posting his Instagram photos. "Not even a Chinese university would do this to their students," he said.

The university did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

"The end result is that Tong and other students who do not adhere to the political orthodoxy of Fordham's administrators are turned into outcasts," the lawsuit reads. "Other individuals who wish to speak out with potentially unpopular but good faith viewpoints are discouraged from exercising their right of free expression."

Tong's lawyer Brett Joshpe said he could not comment on the pending litigation, but said there will be additional claims for "the massive damages caused."

Fordham University Punishes Pro 2A Student

On June 4th, Austin Tong shared a picture of himself holding a legal firearm to commemorate the anniversary of the Tienanmen Square protests.

Austin Tong, a rising senior studying business at Fordham University, was recently banned from campus after posting an image of himself holding a legally purchased rifle. In a previous post, Mr. Tong also shared a picture of David Dorn, with the caption, “Y’all a bunch of hypocrites.” Dorn was a retired police officer who was murdered while protecting a local store during a riot in June. Many have criticized Black Lives Matter for failing to protest the death of David Dorn, who was African American. These two posts were made on June 3rd and June 4th.

In a letter composed on July 14th, Keith Eldredge, the Dean of Students at Fordham University, notified Mr. Tong that a student conduct hearing had found the posts to be in violation of the university’s policies regarding “bias and/or hate crimes [and] threats/intimidation.” As a result of his alleged transgressions, Mr. Tong was barred from serving as an officer in any student groups, banned from campus, and instructed to complete the remainder of his degree online. Additionally, Austin was ordered to complete mandatory implicit bias training and write a letter of apology. He has refused to do so. 

 In an interview on The Joe Silverstein Podcast, Brett Joshpe Esquire, who is representing Mr. Tong stated, “He’s not going to be forced into issuing an apology when he did absolutely nothing wrong.” Mr. Joshpe went on to emphasize the importance of protecting freedom of speech in academia. “[College campuses] are supposed to be places where vigorous debate can happen… It is precisely the controversial topics that need to be protected vigorously and college campuses are exactly where those debates should be taking place.”

The case of Austin Tong is not an isolated incident. Increasingly, we have seen conservative students, faculty, and organizations systematically targeted in higher education. At Cornell University, Professor William Jacobson became the target of a smear campaign after criticizing Black Lives Matter.  In an unprecedented move, Eduardo M. Peñalver, Dean of Cornell Law School, harshly criticized Jacobson for his extramural political speech. Petitions, student boycotts, and allegations of racism quickly followed. Similarly, at Binghamton University, the College Republicans were suspended after tabling to promote a forthcoming event featuring Dr. Arthur Laffer. The university claimed the College Republicans were in violation of university and Student Assembly policies and publicly rebuked the group in a statement. However, the administration failed to take punitive action against violent agitators who assaulted and threatened the conservative students. 

Since Fordham is a private university, they do not have the same first amendment obligations as their public counterparts. However, they do have a responsibility to adhere to their own published policies regarding freedom of speech. Consequently, Joshpe Mooney Paltzik LLP filed an Article 78 Petition alleging that Fordham acted arbitrarily and capriciously in violation of its own policies. “We are prepared to fight for people like Austin Tong, who are prepared to fight for themselves.”

EXCERPTS FROM SECOND ARTICLE ABOVE WHICH ARE SUPPORTIVE & NOT SUPPORTIVE:

"Numerous users expressed support for Tong, commenting that the university infringed on his right to free speech without reasonable cause. Conservative news outlets Campus ReformThe Epoch Times and The Glenn Beck Program have also reported on Tong’s case, which Tong praised on July 16 on Instagram."

"An equally large number of users opposed Tong, commenting that the posts provoked fear and were insensitive amid the Black Lives Matter movement, which has led and amplified a widespread outcry against violence."

"“Austin, I am extremely disappointed that you are actively utilizing your platform to invalidate the BLM movement rather than using your time to facilitate conversations about the issues at hand/trying to raise awareness,” Carrie Kinui, Fordham College at Lincoln Center ’21, commented on Tong’s post of Dorn." 

 

 
 

ISLAMIC STATE URGES MUSLIMS IN U.S. TO “MONITOR WELL FOR A PLACE YOU CAN SET A FIRE WITHOUT DRAWING ATTENTION”

Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State have for years been advocating using fires as a tool of jihad.

“‘Unleash Hell’: New Al Qaeda magazine describes in detail how to start huge forest fires across the U.S..with instructions on how to make ’ember bombs.’” — Daily Mail, May 3, 2012

“ISIS-linked media: California fires are retribution for Syria,” Preston Business Review, November 15, 2018

“Pro-ISIS Media Center Urges Muslim In The West To Set Forests, Factories, Agricultural Fields, And Buildings On Fire,” MEMRI, July 26, 2020:

On July 26, 2020, the Pro-ISIS Al-Hayat Media Center uploaded an animated video titled “Incite the Believers” to its Telegram channel. The narrator called upon Muslims living in non-Muslim lands to avenge their Muslim brothers using whatever weapons are available to them and to carry out Jihad and terror attacks, the video showed various kinds of weapons, including knives and firearms. The narrator said that Muslims should use commonly available items to carry out their attacks and specifically giving the example of fire. He elaborated that fires such as forest fires have killed many non-Muslims and caused hundreds of millions of dollars of damage. He encouraged Muslims to start fires in a fashion that doesn’t draw attention to themselves and to dispose of all forms of evidence as they leave. The video urged viewers to set fire to forests, factories, agricultural fields, and buildings. The video showed a man marking a location in California on a map to set ablaze.

Narrator: “My brothers, all Muslims in every place, under the rule of any sect of kufr, we know that you aspire to avenge for your brothers – who the kuffar and murtadeen [apostates] bombed with their fire and destroyed their cities and villages and imprisoned them in their jails. You look around yourself and you do not find in your hand a weapon that you can use to subdue the enemy of Allah. We know that you are eager to fulfill what your lord, the mighty, the great giver has commanded you from jihad against the mushrikeen [polytheists] and instilling fear in their chests through various methods of terrorism and infuriating them, healing the hearts of the believers. But you cannot find a way to achieve that. The criminals have prevented you from making hijrah [emigrating] to the fields of jihad and the people of the battlefront, and we are sure that if you knew how and found a weapon, you will not delay in fulfilling your duty to support the Muslims and do jihad against the mushrikeen.

“You look around yourself again, keeping an eye [out] for a solution and not searching for a problem. You take in your hand all the means to kill and destroy and consider what you can use easily and without drawing attention to yourself and making the result be death, destruction, and heavy losses to your enemies; yes, my brother, it is that weapon that is in reach of every hand, and even children are proficient in using it. And people have used it since ancient times to harm their enemies. Yes, it is fire.

“To become more convinced of this option, try looking at the losses caused by fires in the lands of the Crusaders every year. Fires in every forest and fields, cities and villages completely destroyed, people displaced, armies of firefighters and civil defense personnel are working continuous days to no avail. The disaster does not stop there, but causes hundreds of millions of dollars in losses sometimes. And look at the human losses caused by fires among the kuffar; sometimes, they exceed the numbers of those lost in major strikes by the mujahideen in which they used guns and explosives. Now, rise up and start working.

“After putting your trust in Allah, the great, truly consider the results of what you intend to do. You will need to monitor well for a place you can set a fire without drawing attention. Consider that the fire you will set after your withdrawal from the place will be so great, that the efforts made to extinguish it will cost your enemies greatly and perhaps they will not be able to put it out. To expand and consume fertile and dry land, their profits will be destroyed and their lives lost. On your way back from the place of your blessed attack, safely dispose of all that can be used as evidence that it is you who lit that fire. Perhaps they will be suspicious about you, monitoring your locations. But, there’s no evidence you intended to [do] that, and nothing with which to hold you accountable for it, except for matchsticks or a lighter, where the pocket is nearly empty of them. Trust in Allah and proceed in this matter. Remember that the longevity of an act is sometimes more important than its strength or what was announced about it. Do not be hasty in goodness, because something is better than that. Invade for the sake of Allah, and seek help from Allah. We ask Allah to help you, give you recompense, and bless your jihad.”
