Islamic Republic of Pakistan: Police tell Christian churches to ‘hire private guards, we cannot protect you’

Many of the police share the faith and outlook of the attackers and are more sympathetic to them than they are to the victims of these attacks.

“Pakistan, Police to Christian Churches: ‘Hire Private Guards, We Cannot Protect You,'” by Massimo Introvigne, Bitter Winter, September 15, 2023:

August was one of the worst months in recent years for the number of assaults to Christian churches in Pakistan, with dozens of places of worship burned or demolished.

Besides arresting Christians for having allegedly provoked the rioters, the Pakistani police has now found a solution for this crisis, and a simple one.

Having inspected an area of Karachi notorious for sectarian conflict, and visited places of worship of different religions, the police issued on September 10, 2023,  “Security Directions for Churches” (mosques are not mentioned).

The police recommends (or rather orders, since “strict compliance” is required), that

“Private security guards be deployed outside the main gate of the church along with metal detector equipment.” Details are as follows: “Private security guard will be deployed on the roof bunker especially made as the backup for gate security. Walk through gates to be installed on the entrances of church. All the windows of churches to be covered with iron grill. CCTVs to be installed inside and outside the premises of churches and must be of great quality such as 6 MP / Night Vision with 15 days minimum back up. Walls of the churches must be fenced properly to avoid any untoward incident.”…

What the document says, in so many words, is that the Pakistani police is not capable or perhaps not willing to protect Christian churches. Christian taxpayers should hire and pay private guards. The police would check who these guards are—perhaps to make sure they are not “too” effective.

German president rejoices that ‘Islam, Muslim religion, Muslim life, Muslim culture have taken root in our country’~Police Hide Nationality of Muslim Criminals

There will come a time in Germany when the non-Muslims call upon the world for help against the persecution they are facing. Some people tried to warn them of what was coming, but they refused to listen to “Islamophobes.”

“Islam, Muslims Belong to Germany: German President,” About Islam, September 17, 2023 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Amid growing racism and Islamophobia, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has stressed that Islam, its culture, and people belong to Germany, calling for protecting and respecting the freedom of all believers.

Steinmeier was speaking Saturday at the celebration of the 50th founding anniversary of the Association of Islamic Cultural Centers (VIKZ) in Cologne, Anadolu Agency reported.

“Islam, the Muslim religion, Muslim life, Muslim culture have taken root in our country,” Steinmeier said.

“Today, the diversity of Islam, the diversity of over 5 million Muslims, is also part of our country,” he said….


Germany: Police Hide Nationality of Muslim Criminals

In Germany, a Syrian migrant tried to kill a snack bar employee, stabbing him in the neck. There was nothing unusual about that: there has been, during the last few years, a wave — a decuman — of murderous attacks by Muslim migrants throughout Europe. But this one was noted because the German police tried, yet again, to hide the criminal’s nationality from the public. More on this can be found here: “Germany: Police accused of hiding Syrian’s immigration status after he was arrested for stabbing a snack bar employee in the neck,” by John Cody, Remix News, September 15, 2023:

In the German city of Soest, a Syrian migrant is accused of stabbing a snack bar employee in the neck inside the Penny supermarket chain, causing life-threatening injuries that nearly severed a vital artery.

Police say that the suspect had already been banned from the supermarket chain, and when he entered the premises at 5:15 p.m. on Tuesday, a 42-year-old employee attempted to stop him.

Why was he banned from the entire supermarket chain? For shoplifting? For assaulting a shopgirl, or a female shopper? For shouting “Allahu akbar” in order to frighten the Infidels? All of these are perfectly plausible. In any case, he didn’t like being banned, and what better way to show he wasn’t going to take that ban lying down than to return to the store, armed with a knife, so that in case anyone tried to expel him, he could, as the Qur’an says, “smite at the neck” of that Infidel employee? Why should he, a Muslim, belonging to the “best of peoples,” have to take orders from an Infidel, who like all non-Muslims is “the most vile of created beings”?

Since the accused did not want to leave the snack bar, a scuffle broke out,” said police spokesman Marco Baffa-Scinelli, according to German newspaper Soester Anzeige.

The suspect, who lives in a nearby accommodation for migrants, pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim “abruptly in the neck,” according to the police report. The knife nearly hit the victim’s neck artery, creating a gaping wound that spouted blood across the supermarket.

The attacker fled the scene, but once police arrived, he reappeared, at which point he was arrested.

Why did he return so quickly to the scene of his stabbing attack? Perhaps he came to enjoy the sight of all that blood and gore. Perhaps he might even have caught sight of his victim lying dead. What fun!

Police were unable to interrogate the suspect due to a “language barrier.” The weapon involved in the attack has not yet been recovered.

The police, in their press release, did not publish the nationality or asylum status of the Syrian, instead simply stating that a Soester, which is the name given to local residents of the city, stabbed another local. Junge Freiheit newspaper accused the police of obscuring the attacker’s identity….

What the public has a right to know, most wants to know, and most needs to know, about the attacker, is his nationality and asylum status. And that information is exactly what the police withheld, describing him only as a “Soester” — that is, a resident of the city of Soest.

“North Rhine-Westphalia municipalities are handling more immigrants than they should under the Refugee Admission Act. Soest has a ‘fulfillment rate’ of 183 percent!” the party’s faction in North Rhine-Westphalia wrote on X, which according to the party, is the highest rate in the entire German state.

Although all of Germany is suffering from the huge apparently unstoppable influx of Muslim economic migrants, the cit of Soest has been made to take in far more than its fair share of so-called “refugees.” And the anti-Muslim immigrant party, Alternative für Deutschland, has been holding rallies in Soest to protest this state of affairs.

Although knife attacks are now commonplace across Germany, with approximately 50 occurring every day, police and media outlets routinely obscure the nationality of attackers, which also applies to a wide variety of other serious crimes, including gang rape….

The German police have for years been hiding from the public the true scope of Muslim migrant crime, by trying to identify them in a way that obscures their true identity, as in this case, by providing only the city where the perpetrator resides, and remaining silent on his nationality and asylum status. Apparently the authorities have decided they don’t want to alarm or anger the public that, were it fully informed about the extent and type of Muslim criminality, would rise up and vote in the anti-Muslim immigrant AfD.

The police are aided and abetted in this effort to hide the truth by the German media, that with the single exception of the mass-market tabloid Bild, willingly participates in this campaign of deliberate obfuscation.

The Alternative für Deutschland must make the scandalous behavior of both the police and the media, in deliberately hiding the identities of Muslim migrant criminals, into a major campaign issue. The public has a right to know the full extent of Muslim crime in their country. Only when fully informed, can the people of Germany — or the indigenes of any Western country where Muslims have been allowed to settle in large numbers — make wise decisions as to the immigration policy they wish to pursue. If the German public knew today the full scope of Muslim crime, or the British public fully grasped that tens of thousands of English girls have had their lives ruined by Pakistani grooming gangs, does anyone think their immigration policies would remain as suicidally soft-hearted as they are today?

Did You Even Hear About the Muslim Who Stabbed Two Cops in Times Square?

While the Biden regime hunts for “white supremacist terrorists,” the jihad continues.


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

Portland, Maine’s WMTW reported Thursday that “the Wells man accused of attacking police in New York City near Times Square with a machete on New Year’s Eve is now scheduled to stand trial on federal charges in March 2024.” The “Wells man” is Trevor Bickford, who was nineteen years old at the time of his attack, and a fervent convert to the religion of Islam. He is “charged with four counts of attempted murder of officers and employees of the U.S. Government” and “has pleaded not guilty.” He is also yet another reminder that when Biden regime officials tell us that white supremacists are the biggest threat the nation faces today, they’re lying.

“According to the state indictment,” says WMTW, “Bickford studied radical Islamic ideology, intended to carry out ‘jihad,’ and aimed to attack U.S. officials he thought to be ‘anti-Muslim.’”

This is unusually forthright reporting for an establishment media outlet, even a minor one. When Bickford stabbed the cops with a machete back on New Year’s Eve, the reaction from authorities was more in line with what we have come to expect these days: they scratched their heads and wondered why, oh why, a young convert to Islam could even dream of doing such a thing. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, “an investigation was underway to pinpoint a motive for the attack.”

That investigation, however, was more the result of officials not wanting to recognize Bickford’s obvious motive, rather than a matter of his real intentions being unclear. Bickford himself left behind a “manifesto” in which he made his perspective and intentions quite clear. But since neither he nor his attack fit the establishment media/Biden regime narrative about the “white supremacist” terror threat, they got virtually no attention.

The New York Post reported that when he was arrested after the stabbings, Bickford had a handwritten note in his backpack, asking his family to “please repent to Allah and accept Islam.” The backpack also contained a “collection of religious material” that was unlikely to have been gospel tracts. Bickford wrote: “To my family — specifically, mother —  I’m sorry for not having been a good enough son.” But then he gets down to brass tacks: “I fear greatly that you will not repent to Allah. And therefore I hold hope in my heart that a piece of you believes so that you may be taken out to [sic] the hellfire.”

Bickford addressed the same hope to his brother: “To Travis. Of anyone I’ve known who I have felt is closest to faith — it’s you. Of anyone I’ve ever wanted to accept Islam with me — it’s you. Please repent to Allah and accept Islam. I fear for you.” To his other brother, who is reportedly in the U.S. Marine Corps, Bickford wrote: “To Devon, there was a time when we were close, but that time has passed. You have joined the ranks of my enemy. And for that, I can give you no kind words – return to Allah.”

The New York Post also noted that Bickford wanted to attack “a uniformed officer” or “someone with a gun,” as he believed such people to be an “enemy of the state.” Which state? The New York Post, as willfully ignorant as the rest of the establishment media, showed no curiosity about this question. But clearly, Trevor Bickford, after he converted to Islam, was no stalwart American patriot. He wanted to target a uniformed officer as an enemy of the Islamic State. He had no kind words for his brother Devon because Devon had joined “the ranks of my enemy,” that is, the U.S. military.

How did Trevor Bickford come to think this way? According to the Daily Mail, he “appeared to be a typical, all-American teenager” who “once made the school honor roll, won awards for his artwork, and was a member of the championship football team in his hometown of Wells, Maine.” Then, however, his father died of a drug overdose, which must certainly have been deeply traumatizing, and Bickford converted to Islam.

If authorities really want to understand Bickford’s motive, they should study carefully what they are almost certainly ignoring even to this day, such as the questions of how and where this young man converted to Islam, and how he got the idea that his new religion, which non-Muslim authorities all over the Western world assure us is completely peaceful and tolerant, commanded him to consider non-Muslims enemies and violently attack them. 

These questions are never asked, much less answered, despite the fact that converts to Islam turning to jihad violence is a distressingly common phenomenon. American intelligence and law enforcement officials don’t want to do anything to give the impression that they don’t accept the dogma that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance that has nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism. The fact that converts to Islam such as Trevor Bickford, Allison Fluke-EkrenDamon JosephCorey Johnson, and many, many others have somehow gotten exactly the opposite idea doesn’t ever make authorities pause and reflect upon their core assumptions.

All this willful ignorance accomplishes nothing other than to ensure that the story of Trevor Bickford will recur again and again. The Biden regime’s all-consuming focus on a fictional “white supremacist” terror threat only ensures that those who converted and taught Bickford and others like him will have a freer hand than ever to recruit and train new jihadis. In this case, as in so many others, the Biden regime’s willful ignorance and politicization of counterterror activity come at a high human cost.

How Bad Is Crime in Philadelphia? Bad Enough for a Cheesesteak Joint to Hire Armed Security

How Bad Is Crime in Philadelphia? Bad Enough for a Cheesesteak Joint to Hire Armed Security
Whenever someone gears up to pay the historic city of Philadelphia a visit, one of the first things they want to know is which establishment makes the best cheesesteak sandwiches. The age-old question was usually decided by whether or not you wanted Cheeze-Whiz or provolone on it. Nowadays, with the skyrocketing crime rate in the city, thanks to disastrous soft-on-crime policies instituted by Democrats, the best cheesesteak joint is the one with armed guards. Tragic, that this is what the City of Brotherly Love has become in Biden’s America.

According to a new report from TheBlaze, Jim’s West Steaks and Hoagies has hired armed guards to provide protection for customers who come to their establishment for the simple pleasure of a good sandwich. It’s absolutely atrocious this is now necessary. But hey, what do you expect when officials in our country’s major cities push for shorter prison sentences, defunding police forces, and all manner of bills that favor criminals? The whole point of having a legal system is the protection of the innocent and discouraging the bad guys from doing bad things that harm society.

If the consequences for doing bad things that harm society consist of slaps on the wrist, we should not be surprised when our deterrent no longer deters.

One of the main reasons the restaurant decided to hire armed guards is because they are a super popular place that usually has lines of people going down the block, which leaves them open to assault and other forms of crime while waiting in line.

The chief financial officer of Jim’s West spoke with local media outlet WPVI-TV, saying, “The violence has spiked. It goes up and down. You want people to feel safe and be safe. So when they come out and eat, they don’t have to worry about no type of harm.”

The owner of Presidential Protection Services, Kevon Darden, has actually gotten out on the streets in front of the famous hoagie establishment and guarded customers. He said that the guards protecting patrons have been certified by the State of Pennsylvania to perform the duties required of security professionals. Many of these individuals have either military or law enforcement backgrounds. In other words, these aren’t random dudes off Monster or Indeed. These are guys who know exactly what they are doing and perform at the highest level of their industry.

Landers commented that the threat of violence on the street is so pervasive right now that many local businesses are being forced to drop a load of extra cash to try and keep both workers and their customer base safe. This is money that many of these smaller companies can’t really afford to part with. So, in light of that, they are forced to offset the cost, which means raising prices for goods and services. And that’s a drain on the bottom line, as it will inevitably reduce business and profit. Reduced profits mean jobs being cut. The company downsizes instead of expanding. The economy of the whole city takes a punch to the gut.

All of this is because leftists, desperate to remain in power, are doing their best to ensure criminals get off lightly for their behavior so they can ultimately restore their right to vote and fluff up their voter rolls. Gross, right?

The Philly Voice stated in a recent report that, back in 2015, Jim’s West was the target of several armed robbers who ended up only getting $215 in cash out of the register and from customers who were patronizing the establishment at the time.

One of the customers weighed in on the armed guards, saying, “If it deters it (crime), I can’t complain. I’m not a big fan of guns, but I get it.”

Another individual, likely a bonehead liberal, said that seeing an armed guard “walking around with a machine gun, it’s not family-friendly.”

I hate to break it to this person, but given the crime rate in Philly, I’d say the whole city is no longer “family friendly.”

NYC Cutting Police Overtime Pay To Better Accommodate Migrant Crisis

Despite official reports that show the New York City police force is already understaffed, the city will begin reducing overtime pay for its officers in an effort to compensate for the city’s growing migrant issues.

City Hall confirmed to the press that Democrat Mayor Eric Adams’ administration has instructed the city’s police, fire, prisons, and sanitation agencies to submit an overtime pay reduction plan and start measuring progress each month.

According to police unions, the proposal will decrease the number of officers on patrol and increase city risk.

“It is going to be impossible for the NYPD to significantly reduce overtime unless it fixes its staffing crisis. We are still thousands of cops short, and we’re struggling to drive crime back to pre-2020 levels without adequate personnel,” said Patrick Hendry, head of the Police Benevolent Association.

“If City Hall wants to save money without jeopardizing public safety, it needs to invest in keeping experienced cops on the job,” he continued.

The strategy put forward by the Adams administration also includes a hiring freeze.

City Hall acknowledged sending a letter that would inform several departments of the change, but it would not make the memo available to the press.

After Adams referred to the influx of migrants into NYC as a “financial tsunami” on Sunday, a cost-cutting initiative was implemented. He has previously stated that the immigration problem will “destroy” the city.

“We are about to experience a financial tsunami that I don’t think the city has ever experienced,” Adams said in an interview with local media. “Every service in this city is going to be impacted, from child service to our seniors to housing. Everything will be impacted.”

Numerous resources have been used to house the migrants in NYC, and some of them have praised the accommodations.

Just days after Adams declared a state of emergency due to the growing migrant problem, a Venezuelan immigrant told the local press that he was enjoying his stay in a “migrant hotel” at the McCarren Play Center in New York City.

“I brought my wife and children to the pool on Sunday, and there was no problem,” Mujica said. “We all swam between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m.,” Mujica said, adding, “It’s a very nice pool.”

Adams had referenced a fight that broke out at a migrant shelter in Brooklyn last week when concerns were expressed regarding women and children sharing facilities with single males. Many felt that public safety could be at risk.

“This is not a utopia. New York City cannot manage 10,000 people a month with no end in sight,” the mayor asserted. “That can’t happen, and that is going to undermine this entire city.”

Minnesota Prison On Lockdown After Nearly 100 Inmates Refused To Return To Cells

Minnesota Prison On Lockdown After Nearly 100 Inmates Refused To Return To Cells

After around 100 convicts in one housing unit refused to return to their cells, a Minnesota prison has been placed on emergency lockdown, and members of a crisis negotiation team have been activated, according to the state Department of Corrections on Sunday.

The situation is “currently stable,” and the reason convicts “are refusing to return to their cells remains unclear.” The Special Operations Response Team was also sent in “out of an abundance of caution,” according to a spokesperson for the facility.

However, Communities United Against Police Brutality (CUAPB) spokesman Michelle Gross claimed in an interview that the incident was brought on by the fact that jailers had been without access to fresh water, ice, and even showers for many days due to understaffing.

“They’re saying it’s hotter than hell in there, and the water in the cells is brown,” Gross said. “The inmates have been melting ice for drinking water, but with short staffing, there’s not enough to go around.”

Sunday’s “incident is endemic and highlights the truth behind the operations of the [Minnesota] Department of Corrections with chronic understaffing,” said the head of the union representing staffers and corrections officers at Stillwater.

Correctional facilities, according to the union, “cannot have transformational offender programming without sufficient facility security.”

“Without more staffing in our correctional facilities with talented people, we will continue down this unacceptable road of staff assaults, offenders controlling sections of our prisons, and more,” said Bart Andersen, interim executive director of AFSCME Council 5.

Two officers at the Stillwater Correctional Facility who spoke to the press assured that they were safe in a secure control room and in contact with facility personnel. No recorded injuries have been reported.

Additionally, aerial footage from a FOX helicopter revealed a sizable emergency response, including police, ambulances, and firefighters, waiting outside the facility.

Seven residential units are located inside the building, while a minimum-security unit is located outside the main perimeter.

Department data reported that there are over 1,200 convicts altogether at the institution, which is southeast of Stillwater.

According to its website, the Stillwater Correctional Facility was founded in 1914 and is the largest male close-security facility in the state of Minnesota.

NYC MAYOR: Curtis Sliwa Arrested, Protestors Clash at Anti-Migrant Protest Gracie Mansion NYC~Migrant crisis reaches boiling point on Staten Island, New York City~Nassau County, Long Island refuses illegal immigrants

YORKVILLE, Manhattan- Protests against Migrant Shelters being set up in the outer boroughs continued for another weekend this time in front of Gracie Mansion. Protesters want the City to stop migrants from being housed in the 5 boroughs and the Federal Govt to close the US Border. Earlier in the rally, they were a far-left counter-demonstrations that had scuffles with the anti-migrant rallygoers. Curtis Sliwa of the Guardian Angels and two senior citizens were arrested after blocking the entrance to Gracie Mansion.

Migrant crisis reaches boiling point on Staten Island, New York City

A judge has ruled that New York City cannot use a former school on Staten Island as a migrant shelter, for now, despite asylum seekers arriving Friday afternoon.

Nassau County, Long Island, New York Executive Bruce Blakeman says local leaders have legal authority to refuse shelter for illegal immigrants.

Guardian Angels Founder Curtis Sliwa was arrested during a migrant shelter protest on Staten Island.

On Sunday, the former Republican New York City Mayor nominee was arrested at the Midland Beach Migrant Shelter protest.

According to authorities, the protest came after the decision of a former assisted living facility to transform into a migrant shelter. 

Video shows Sliwa and supporters during the protest carrying handmade signs and chanting phrases like “Close the borders,” “Stop the invasion,” and “USA! USA!”

“I’ve taken it upon myself to lead this effort with good people all throughout New York state, because they are not going to get away with invading our country with illegal aliens,” said Sliwa.

Silwa and his supporters then gathered together, linking arms to block off the roads in front of the facility. 

“Today, this is not Republican versus Democrat versus Independents,” said Sliwa. “We’re joined together at the hip in solidarity. It’s us and we, not I and me. It’s Americans versus those who would destroy the America that we know.”

The New York Police Department told protestors that if they did not leave the roadway and use the accessible walkways, they would be arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. 

The idea to turn Island Shores into a migrant shelter is part of a larger dilemma since it is expected to cost the city more than $12 billion by July 2025, in addition to the city already spending a whopping $1.45 billion.

Islamic Republic of Iran: Over 50 Christians in five cities arrested in new crackdown



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

Then Khamenei goes on Twitter and disseminates self-righteous lies about how tolerant Iran is compared to the evil West. The West is no paradise of tolerance these days under increasing Leftist tyranny, but as repressive as it is, the Islamic Republic really has no leg to stand on in this regard.

“Over 50 Christians in five cities arrested in new crackdown,” Article 18, July 18, 2023:

More than 50 Christian converts have been arrested in a rash of new incidents across five Iranian cities over the past seven days, with fears the number could rise much higher as fresh reports keep coming in.

At least 51 of those arrested at their homes or house-churches – in the cities of Tehran, Karaj, Rasht, Orumiyeh and Aligoudarz – remain in detention on unknown charges, while others have been released on bail.

Article18 cannot at this time share any more details about the incidents, but after very few publicly reported arrests of Christians so far this year, the news marks a clear change in approach.

Mansour Borji, Article18’s advocacy director, commented: “The reason for this sudden surge in nationwide arrests of Christians is not clear at this stage. What is obvious is that Iran has begun a fresh crackdown on civil liberties, and the traditionally vulnerable groups, like Christians, are on the front line of those targeted.”…

Fargo, North Dakota: Muslim community refuses to bury Muslim who killed cop, says nobody knew him

North Dakota officials: Muslim shooter was not motivated by religion, but feds had report about him




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

The fact that the Muslims in Fargo refused to bury Mohamad Barakat is not the unalloyed good news that it likely appears to be to those who deplore “Islamophobia.” The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) was similarly celebrated and gained worldwide headlines — and praise — for its announcement in 2017 that 130 imams in the United Kingdom were refusing to perform funeral prayers for the London jihad mass murderers.

Now, maybe both the Fargo Muslims and the MCB had the best of intentions, but the fact is that the prophet of Islam, Muhammad himself, is depicted in hadiths as forbidding funeral prayers for martyrs. Islamic law forbids such prayers as well. Withholding funeral prayers is actually an honor that is reserved for those who die while committing jihad. In one hadith, Muhammad ordered two martyrs to be “buried with their blood (on their bodies). Neither was the funeral prayer offered for them nor were they washed.” One of the martyrs’ sons recalled: “When my father was martyred, I started weeping and uncovering his face. The companions of the Prophet stopped me from doing so but the Prophet did not stop me. Then the Prophet said, ‘(O Jabir), don’t weep over him, for the angels kept on covering him with their wings till his body was carried away (for burial)'” (Bukhari 5.59.406).

The Qur’an says that those who have been killed while fighting for Allah are not dead, but alive: “Do not think of those who are killed in the way of Allah as dead. No, they are living. With their Lord they have provision.” (3:169)

Based on the hadith in which Muhammad orders the bodies of the martyrs not to be washed and funeral prayers not to be said over them, as well as others like it, Islamic law states that it is “unlawful to wash the body of a martyr … or perform the funeral prayer over him.…[A] martyr (shahid) means someone who died in battle with non-Muslims.” (Reliance of the Traveller, G4.20)

Meanwhile, the Muslims at the local mosque say they never saw Barakat, and nobody knows him. This may be true, but we have seen deception from mosques that jihadis attended before. After a Muslim who supported the Islamic State shot a police officer in Philadelphia, the local mosque leaders initially denied knowing him, but then it turned out they were lying, and the jihadi attended the mosque frequently. The same thing happened after jihadis attacked our free speech event in Garland, Texas: the mosque they attended in Phoenix denied knowing them, but it turned out they were regular members.

Also, the fact that Barakat didn’t frequent the local mosque, if true, establishes precisely nothing. The Express reported in January 2016 that an Islamic State manual, “Safety and Security Guidelines for Lone Wolf Mujahideen,” told jihadis: “You should make sure to not look particularly attached to religion. A man who works on a secret operation should meddle [sic] in the general population. If you can avoid having a beard, wearing qamis, using miswak and having a booklet of dhikr with you, it’s better. Also. you shouldn’t be going too often to places like mosques, Islamic institutes or Islamic libraries. You should also wear western-style clothes as to appear neutral and not draw attention to yourself.”

Was Mohamad Barakat engaged in that kind of deceptive operation? Maybe, maybe not. But is the clueless and corrupt FBI even pursuing that as a possibility to be investigated, or would that be “Islamophobic”?

“Local Muslims condemn ‘evil’ gunman, refuse to help bury him,” by C.S. Hagen, InForum, July 20, 2023:

FARGO — In a show of solidarity with the Fargo Police Department, a group of about 10 Muslim refugees and immigrant leaders placed flowers at the memorial for slain officer Jake Wallin on 25th Street South this week.

Along with bringing Somali food to Fargo police headquarters on Thursday, July 20, the gestures were to show respect for law enforcement, but also to condemn the attack by gunman Mohamad Barakat who killed Wallin, seriously wounded two other officers and injured a bystander.

The Forum spoke with more than a dozen members of the local Muslim community who all said they did not know 37-year-old Barakat.

Despite his first name, which is common among Muslims, area leaders in the Islamic faith rejected any affiliation with Barakat, who they said did not attend the Fargo mosque or the one in Moorhead.

In fact, a family member’s request made to local mosque leaders to handle Barakat’s funeral arrangements has been refused, said Sajid Ghauri, an adviser to the Moorhead mosque, known as the Moorhead Fargo Islamic Center.

“We have no clue whether he was even Muslim because his action doesn’t show that. So with that being said … we refused to do a funeral or burial in this area,” Ghauri said. “Even if he’s a member, he can’t mess with our community like that.”

On July 14, Barakat armed himself with a homemade grenade, gasoline, explosives, a .223 caliber long rifle, 1,800 rounds of ammunition, four other handguns and additional rifles, a tactical vest and double-stacked, large-capacity magazines, North Dakota Attorney General Drew Wrigley said during a press conference on Wednesday, July 19.

Stopping short of calling the shooting an act of terrorism, Wrigley said Fargo Police Officer Zachary Robinson was the “last man standing for what was coming next and what this assailant was armed for.”

Mayor Tim Mahoney agreed with Wrigley during the press conference saying Barakat’s attack was not finished.

“It is clear to us our officers were ambushed in this attack. Had Zach not neutralized the shooter we would have many more casualties. He was planning on war and mayhem in our community,” Mahoney said.

Ahmed Makaran, executive director of ESHARA, or the Ethnic Self Help Alliance for Refugee Assistance, came to the makeshift memorial for Wallin on Tuesday. Makaran has been meeting with city leaders and the Fargo Police Department to offer help in any way he can, he said.

No one in the local Muslim community knew Barakat, or had even heard his name, Makaran said.

“We have a lot of Mohamads and Ahmeds here, but we have not even seen his picture. And that is an unknown fear. People see the name and think it is like every other Muslim. But with good communication we can make this unknown fear go away,” Makaran said.

Other Muslim leaders said connecting Barakat’s name to the religion of Islam makes as much sense as linking the name John to Christianity.

Ghauri said he talked to about 50 Muslim people in the area and so far has not found anyone who knew Barakat.

“You cannot attach this to any religion. That person has what looks like a Muslim name, but his actions were not Muslim,” Ghauri said….

“Islam is a peaceful religion that condemns the use of violence against innocents, including police officers, firefighters and other first responders performing their duties. Further, it is the civic and religious duty of Muslims to cooperate with law enforcement and protect the lives of all civilians,” Ghauri said….

Adde and others are concerned about how the wider Fargo-Moorhead community will react to Friday’s violence.

Already, a newly-placed poster found Monday along 10th Street South advertised the Patriot Front, saying “Reclaim America.”

High up on a wall behind the stage in Broadway Square a similar message was also spray painted.

The Patriot Front is a white nationalist hate group that formed after the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights nonprofit that tracks hate groups.

In 2022, there were at least three instances of vandalism with the words Patriot Front on businesses and tunnels in the Fargo-Moorhead area….

Was There Just a Jihad Terror Attack in Fargo, North Dakota?

Was There Just a Jihad Terror Attack in Fargo, North Dakota?



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

On Friday afternoon, police in Fargo, North Dakota, responded to a report of a car crash at 9th Avenue South and 25th Street South. Fargo Police Chief David Zibolski said it was a “routine traffic accident,” but what happened when they arrived on the scene was anything but routine. A Fargo resident named Mohamad Barakat, 37, opened fire on the officers, killing one and injuring three others. Zibolski said that Barakat attacked the officers “for no known reason,” and authorities have as yet offered no hints as to the shooter’s motive. One of the most obvious possibilities, however, is being steadfastly ignored, as one might expect given today’s media narrative.

A witness said, according to the Associated Press, that Barakat “appeared to have ambushed the officers.” He was standing behind a car that was parked in the parking lot of a bank near the scene of the crash, and he quickly opened fire on the police officers from about twenty feet away. The witness added, “He was holding up the trunk of the car with his arm, and then I see the gun come up, and he set it on his shoulder and just pointed it directly at an officer in front of him. It was like 10 shots right away.”

When Barakat began shooting, the police were busy with the traffic accident and weren’t even looking in his direction, but they quickly began to return fire. Another witness recounted, “I saw them firing at each other, both at once. But soon as the shooter took a break, the cop came walking towards him, letting off round after round. There was already an officer down, and a family hiding just on the other side of the vehicle next to the shooter.”

Zibolski, however, declined to confirm that Barakat had ambushed the officers, saying only, “The investigation into that is still ongoing.” He did reveal, however, that Fargo police had previously dealt with Barakat, although he downplayed these encounters as “not anything significant.”

Above all, Zibolski was puzzled. “The first thing we always want to know in a situation like this is, ‘Why?’” said Zibolski. “Why would somebody do this? What happened?” And he expressed amazement that such an incident could take place in Fargo, North Dakota: “This is an unconscionable act. It’s hard to fathom, it’s unbelievable that something like this would happen in our community. Many of us think this stuff can’t happen. It just happened.”

Yes, it did. And Zibolski added that the FBI had been called in, but given the fact that the feds are now far more interested in finding “domestic terrorists” at school board meetings and Catholic churches than in hunting down actual terrorists, Zibolski may still not get an answer to his question of why someone would do such a thing. FBI agents today would likely not recognize an Islamic jihadist if he stood behind a car and started shooting at them, but Mohamad Barakat may have been one. There is no indication that anyone is looking into this possibility, but it would provide an immediate explanation for the details of the case.

This is because the Islamic State (ISIS) has repeatedly called upon Muslims in the West to attack police officers as well as other authorities. Back in September 2014, the Islamic State exhorted Muslims in the West not to “let this battle pass you by wherever you may be.” It called upon them to “kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be.”

Specifically, the jihadis said: “Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves.” The jihadis should take advantage of all opportunities and means to kill: “If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.”

Now, Mohamad Barakat may have had entirely different reasons for his attack. But the possibility that this was a jihad terror attack in Fargo, North Dakota, cannot be dismissed out of hand, even as authorities appear disinclined even to consider it as a possibility. The FBI and the entire Biden regime have never given any indication that they’re aware that the global jihad continues. Unfortunately, it does.

Islamic Republic of Iran: Three Christian women arrested without charges to go on trial



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

These converts are getting off easy: Shi’ite Islam, like Sunni Islam, prescribes the death penalty for apostasy:

Shaykh al-Kulayni narrates a sahíh (correct) hadith from `Ammãr as-Sãbãti who said: I heard (Imam) Abu `Abdullãh (as-Sãdiq) (a.s.) saying, “A Muslim from among the Muslims who renounces Islam and rejects the prophethood of Muhammad and considers him untrue, then verily his blood is lawful (mubãh) for anyone who hears that from him, his wife is to be separated from him the day he became murtad, his wealth will be divided among his heirs, and his wife will observe the `idda of a widow (i.e., four months). The Imam is obliged to kill him, and not ask him to seek forgiveness.” (Furu al-Kãfi, vol. 7, p. 257)

“Three Christian women arrested without charges to go on trial in Iran,” AsiaNews, July 1, 2023 (thanks to Tom):

Tehran (AsiaNews) – Three Iranian women converts to Christianity will appear in court tomorrow on unknown charges, this according to Article 18, an NGO dedicated to religious freedom in Iran and advocating on behalf of its religious minorities, especially Christians.

Arrested last month, the three women were held incommunicado in Tehran’s Evin prison for 40 days. Indicting people without formal charges is not unusual in Iran, nor is taking Christians into custody only for meeting in private homes to pray.

Officers with the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence arrested Shilan Oraminejad, Razieh (Maral) Kohzady and Zahra (Yalda) Heidary at their respective homes in the early morning on 9 May.

Claiming to have search warrants, agents seized personal effects, including mobile phones, laptops, books and pamphlets “without giving any explanation,” Mehr Ministries report.

The three Christian women were taken to an unknown location. After 40 days incommunicado, they were able to call their families to tell them that they were in Evin prison, but were denied, again without explanation, legal counsel.

After meeting the women, relatives said that “they were not in a good physical condition,” Hamid Hatami, president of Mehr Ministries, told Voice of America Farsi. Since then, Shilan and Zahra have been released on bail pending trial, while Maral remains in custody, he added….

Hateful Gun Banner Sent to Prison for Threatening Congresswoman Boebert

Lauren Boebert



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

U.S.A.A 39-year-old South Florida man who is an ardent anti-gunner was sentenced last week to 15 months in federal prison and one year of probation for threatening U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colorado, in a series of social media posts that targeted the Congresswoman for her strong Second Amendment support.

In 2021, Matthew Lee Comiskey sent five threatening tweets to Boebert that mentioned firearms and encouraged readers to do her harm. Comiskey originally faced five counts of making an interstate threat but pleaded guilty last year to one count.

His tweets show that Comiskey is violently anti-gun:

  • “Someone needs to put Lauren down like a sick dog. She is a true waste of life! Someone exercise their second amendment right to her face! Since the CIA is a failure and FBI is incompetent at charging her for being a terrorist it’s time to do it ourselves! Pew pew Lauren,” Comiskey wrote in September 2021.
  • “Don’t come to Florida us libs have big guns here and we stand (our) ground. Take you down like Trayvon,” Comiskey wrote a month later.
  • “Don’t worry Lauren, someone is coming soon to show your face the 2nd amendment in practice with a copper jacket. Enjoy,” Comiskey wrote.

Boebert’s pro-gun credentials are well known.

Before the 36-year-old conservative was elected to Congress in 2020, she owned Shooter’s Grill, a Western-themed restaurant in her hometown of Rifle, Colorado, where staff openly carried firearms.

Boebert has earned A-ratings from Gun Owners of America, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, and the National Rifle Association. In Congress, she is a member of the Freedom Caucus and the Second Amendment Caucus.

During his sentencing last week at the Paul G. Rogers federal courthouse in West Palm Beach, Florida, Comiskey told the court he let his “personal emotions get in the way of my common sense.”

His mother told the court that her son’s actions were “out of character.” Yeah right….

U.S. District Judge Robin L. Rosenberg rejected Comiskey’s requests for a shorter prison sentence or home confinement.

Indiana: Woman claims to be Islamic State supporter, threatens to behead cops

Bodycam: ISIS Supporter Threatens to Decapitate Cops After Allegedly Burning US Flag



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

Sierra Justice Malloy sounds more crazy than anything else. Nonetheless, her claim to be a supporter of the Islamic State and daughter of a National Socialist leader is interesting. Islamic jihadis and their enablers and allies routinely characterize opponents of jihad violence and Sharia oppression as racists and Nazis. The opposite is true, going back to Hajj Amin al-Husseini.

“Bodycam footage shows shocking moment female ISIS supporter threatens to DECAPITATE Indiana cops after burning American flag,” by Melissa Koenig,, June 14, 2023:

Shocking body camera footage shows the moment an Indiana woman threatened to decapitate local police officers as she claimed she was a member of the Islamic State terrorist group.

‘If y’all don’t get fired, f****** toast, ISIS will cut your f****** heads off,’ Sierra Justice Malloy, 43, could be heard telling officers who responded to reports of arson outside a Spectrum cable store on Old Business Road in Evansville Sunday night….

‘You’ve been hit by terrorists at the worst time, you just don’t know it yet,’ she tells the police — whom she accuses of ‘selling my children to pedophiles’ and keeping children under government buildings to drink their blood.

Malloy was charged with flag desecration, intimidation, criminal mischief and trespassing. She is being held a the Vanderburgh County Jail on a $1,500 bond….

‘The called advised grass was on fire approximately six to 10 feet from the building,’ Officer Ed Kitzinger wrote in an affidavit obtained by the Evansville Courier and Press. ‘The fire department was on scene already and the fire had been put out.’

By 9.52pm, police-worn body cameras showed an officer approaching the scene, where Malloy was already in handcuffs and a green flag could be seen waving from the top of a flag post….

Malloy continued to hurl a flurry of slurs and homophobic insults at the officers in the heavily-censored video while officers behind her took down the green flag.

At that point, she threatened to ‘cut your f****** heads off.’

‘My head?’ an officer asks.

‘Yeah, he’s going to cut your heads off,’ Malloy responds. ‘You don’t know who I am, do you? You’re going to find out who I am.’

One of the officers then asked Malloy if she follows Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein, to which Malloy says: ‘Maybe I am. Happy 9/11.’

‘Yeah, you’ve been hit by terrorists at the worst time, you just don’t know it yet,’ she continued. ‘Indeed, watch what I tell you boys.’

She then accused the officers of having ‘children underneath these government buildings, f*****abusing them, drinking their blood.’

She also said they ‘sell my children to pedophiles,’ all of which are apparent Q-Anon conspiracy theories.

Malloy continued to curse out the officers, when the officer whose camera was recording approached the green flag, now on the ground.

‘What is that?’ he asked.

‘An Islamic flag,’ his colleague responded.

‘Oh, that’s an Islamic State flag?’ he clarified.

‘Yeah, she is ISIS,’ another officer off screen could be heard saying.

‘Yeah that’s right I am ISIS, indeed,’ Malloy admits, to which the officer whose body camera is recording simply says, ‘huh.’

According to court documents obtained by the Courier and Press, Malloy went on to claim that her ISIS handle is Lori D. Franklin.

A public Facebook account corresponding to that name includes a slew of anti-Semitic content and features posts associated with the Q-Anon movement like #SaveTheChildren and #KidsforCash.

She also claimed on the page that she is the daughter of neo Nazi Joseph Paul Franklin, a notorious serial killer in the 1970s, accusing the FBI of framing him.

Other posts said white people are under attack from integration in the United States and calls for justice for the January 6 rioters.

‘I’ve lived long enough to see Americans left in Afghanistan with our enemies the Taliban,’ she writes in one post in August.

‘White Americans have been set up and murdered by the government. We are now labeled as domestic terrorists just by being White in America. #WhiteLivesMatter,’ she claimed.

Another post also featured a swastika over a candle saying ‘Be the light.’…

Anti-Israel Activist Arrested for Vandalizing Michigan Synagogue

Police apprehend suspect behind swastika graffiti on a synagogue, tied to Scientology building arson

FOX 2 found that Randi Nord is the founder of Geopolitics Alert Independent World News where she covers US foreign policy in the Middle East with a focus on Yemen.

Is vandalizing a synagogue “anti-Zionism” or anti-Semitism?

strange story turns out not to be so strange after all.

A woman accused of spray-painting antisemitic graffiti at the Woodward Avenue Shul Jewish Center in Royal Oak last week has been charged, police said.

Randi Lucille Nord was arraigned Wednesday through 44th District Court in Royal Oak, records show. She was charged with ethnic intimidation, a felony carrying a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $5,000 fine, and malicious destruction of a building, a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of 93 days in jail and a fine three times the amount of the destruction, police said.

A swastika symbol and the letters AZOV were spray-painted on the side of the building April 27. The word “azov” means “leave” in Hebrew but the letters also are linked to a pro-Nazi Ukrainian militia.

A Twitter account with that name has the banner, “Visit the USSR” over it. And a woman by the name of “Randi Nord” was described as a “MintPress News staff writer”.

Her articles have also appeared in the Tehran Times and Iran’s Press TV.

Randi Nord’s articles fall into that category of deranged antisemitism that leftists defend as antizionist.

In the opening of an article on the border crisis,” Randi Nord wrote, “Mimicking Israel’s tools of repression, United States troops deployed along the U.S.-Mexico border used aggressive force against thousands of unarmed migrants seeking asylum from U.S.-stoked violence in their home countries.”

Headlines include rants like, “Eight Celebs that Helped Raise $60M for the IDF Right Before It Launched an Attack on Gaza,” “Texas Educator Files Lawsuit after She was Fired for Refusing to Sign an Oath to Israel,” “Airbnb Set to Remove Listings from Occupied West Bank that Serve Jewish Settlers” and “Secret Document Reveals Plans for Civil War in Lebanon, Israeli False Flags.”

MintPress News is a far-left site notorious for its antisemitism.

The site was created by Mnar Muhawesh, a “Palestinian” Muslim activist and the daughter of Odeh Muhawesh, a college professor and Islamic sheik, who has accused America of “Islamophobia.”

Much of MintPress News’ content consists of deranged rants against Israel and the site features the worst of the worst, like Max Blumenthal and Miki Peled, and its support for Hamas is not exactly subtle.

As seen in pieces like “Engaging the World” The Fascinating Story of Hamas’s Political Evolution”.

Since MintPress News is leftist, the media is refusing to connect the dots between leftist antisemitism and vandalizing a synagogue, just as when an Intercept writer was caught phoning bomb threats to Jewish groups.

But I’m sure the Left will explain how vandalizing synagogues and calling in bomb threats is “anti-Zionism” and not “anti-Semitism.”

Rep. Rashida Tlaib Votes Against Memorializing Slain Police Officers



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

Democrats have gone from the party of JFK to a party of terrorists.

How extreme are ‘Squad’ members? How much do they hate this country and its law enforcement personnel?

House Resolution 363 memorializing law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty is a pretty routine sort of thing.

It’s a list of law enforcement personnel killed in the line of duty for “Peace Officers Memorial Day” which was an annual commemoration created by JFK.

This year 224 officers were killed in the line of duty.

House members routinely voted almost unanimously to honor them. Almost.

Even AOC voted in favor of this one, but two ‘Squad’ members, Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Cori Bush voted against honoring slain police officers.

The two extremists issued a statement claiming that honoring murdered police officers will only promote “Republicans’ false narrative around supporting law enforcement and gaslight the public about where they stand.”

Speaking of gaslighting the public, Rep. Bush ranted that Republicans are “getting people killed in St. Louis and around the country” and “will support any number of abuses that law enforcement inflicts on communities like St. Louis”.

Rep. Cori Bush has made no secret of hating police and the only ones Rep. Tlaib will honor are Islamic terrorists.
