Iran sought nuclear weapons and technology for weapons of mass destruction in 2020

No matter how much evidence is put forth to prove the folly of a new nuke deal with Iran, none of it seems to matter to kowtowing globalist leaders, who are facilitating the escalation of Iran’s aggression, and the destruction of the West.

“Iran sought nuclear weapons, technology for WMDs last year, reports find,” by Benjamin Weinthal, Fox News, May 4, 2021:

The Islamic Republic of Iran made multiple attempts in 2020 to obtain technology for its weapons of mass destruction program and has not stopped its drive to develop atomic weapons, intelligence agencies from the Netherlands, Sweden and Germany recently reported.

The Netherlands’ General Intelligence and Security Service “investigated networks that tried to obtain the knowledge and materials to develop weapons of mass destruction. Multiple acquisition attempts have been frustrated by the intervention of the services,” the agency wrote in its April report.

According to the Dutch report, “The joint Counter-proliferation Unit (UCP) of the AIVD [the General Intelligence and Security Service] and the MIVD [the country’s Military Intelligence and Security Service] is investigating how countries try to obtain the knowledge and goods they need to make weapons of mass destruction. Countries such as Syria, Pakistan, Iran and North Korea also tried to acquire such goods and technology in Europe and the Netherlands last year.”

Iran’s regime was listed under the document’s section on preventing “countries from acquiring weapons of mass destruction.”

The intelligence agency did not provide details on the multiple attempts by the rogue nations to secure weapons of mass destruction technology. The report also did not state whether Iran’s regime illegally obtained technology and equipment for its nuclear program.

The General Intelligence and Security Service under its mandate “conducts investigations, provides information, and mobilizes third parties to safeguard the democratic legal order and national security, to actively reduce risks, and to contribute to foreign policy-making.”

The Netherlands’ MIVD and AIVD intelligence services, according to the report, “conducted intensive research into several very active networks” that are involved in proliferation and use various third parties in European countries. “Consequently, export licenses were verified and acquisition attempts frustrated,” the report said.

The damning findings from the fresh European intelligence are likely to animate broader discussion about whether the U.S. should return to the much-criticized 2015 Iran nuclear deal….

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

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

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

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

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

It gets worse:

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

Turkey should long ago have been expelled from NATO.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DHS Considering Hiring Contractors to Spy on “Domestic Terrorists” Online

SARAH CORRIHER: The American Stasi Strikes

In the former American Republic, the Biden regime is making lists of its enemies but the God-given rights that are cataloged within the U.S. Constitution are an impediment to his weaponized law enforcement agencies. The Department of Homeland Security is going to hire private companies to do its dirty work, so that it may trounce the 4th Amendment and existing privacy laws. These companies will be working for the government, in a dirt digging (fishing) operation against conservatives and Christians, while pretending not to work for the government.

Report: DHS Considering Hiring Contractors to Spy on “Domestic Terrorists” Online

BY

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/report-dhs-considering-hiring-contractors-to-spy-on-domestic-terrorists-online/;

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

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is considering working with outside firms to surveil “extremist” language by Americans online, according to a report.

The DHS is discussing a plan that would allow them to circumvent limits on intelligence gathering. Federal agents are only allowed by federal law to scroll through public posts on social media and cannot use burner accounts to follow private accounts or enter private chat rooms. However, the reported DHS plan would enlist private cybersecurity firms to engage in those practices.

The initiative comes as law-enforcement agencies ramp up scrutiny of extremist groups with members present at the January 6 Capitol protest. In the aftermath of that event, both Republicans and Democrats criticized security officials for intelligence failures that caused them to underestimate the number of people that would attempt to enter the Capitol.

During his address to a Joint Session of Congress, President Biden said, “The most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today is from white supremacist terrorism.” He said that, even though the Capitol survived the supposed insurrection, “The struggle is far from over. The question of whether our democracy will long endure is both ancient and urgent.” 

Biden’s remarks echo comments made in congressional testimony by FBI Director Christopher Wray in March. “The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now, and it’s not going away any time soon,” Wray said at the time.

The extremists allegedly operate and plot online. It was found that the majority — more than 85 percent — of those charged with crimes for their role in the January 6 “insurrection” were charged in part using evidence from their personal social media accounts, others’ accounts, or both. Facebook was the preferred platform and was used by 73 of the people charged, more than all other social media sites combined, according to a Forbes analysis. YouTube was the second most-referenced at 24 percent. Instagram, a Facebook-owned company, was next at 20 percent. Parler, the app that pledged protection for free-speech rights and garnered a large conservative user base, was mentioned in just eight percent of the charges.

Thus, monitoring “extremist” chatter online becomes a crucial necessity for the DHS. To achieve that, some privacy protections need to be overcome. According to the Exclusionary Rule, first formulated by the U.S. Supreme Court in Mapp v. Ohio, the government is prohibited from using information that it obtained illegally — usually meaning without a warrant — in court. However, evidence first obtained by private citizens may be used in court, regardless of how it was obtained, as long as the private citizen is not acting as an agent of the police.

In coordination with the National Security Council and the FBI, officials at DHS are considering multiple ways to expand the department’s approach to gathering information via social media. “There was only limited awareness before January 6 of what violent extremists were planning through social media,” said Tom Warrick, former DHS deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism policy. Warrick confirmed the DHS will likely “explore whether contractors could help them understand plots and trends” online.

Using private contractors to monitor social-media sites would give DHS a work-around to warrant requirements. In the new reported plan, the private contractors could tell the government officials what information they saw, thus avoiding the warrant application. “We are exploring with our lawyers, civil rights, civil liberties and privacy colleagues, how we can make use of outside expertise,” a DHS official said.

The DHS is not the first major federal institution under the Biden administration that has sparked concern among Americans.

The U.S. Postal Service has been quietly monitoring social-media posts, including posts about planned protests. At least some of that specifically targeted “right-leaning accounts,” Yahoo News reported. The surveillance program, they explain, known as the Internet Covert Operations Program (iCOP), centers around hired analysts who review social-media accounts for “inflammatory” posts to share across government agencies.

Last summer, amid the Portland protests, the DHS got under fire for compiling “intelligence reports” on two journalists who covered the riots. After the Washington Post published a story detailing the department’s practices, then-Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf ordered the intelligence office to stop collecting information on journalists and assured Americans that DHS is committed to respecting civil rights and civil liberties, particularly when it comes to the exercise of First Amendment-protected rights.

But as President Joe Biden says, no amendment is absolute, and for his administration, privacy and freedom of speech seem to be secondary to “public safety” endangered by the “most lethal terrorist threat.”

U.S. to Israeli Delegation: Come If You Must, But Our Minds Are Made Up

BY HUGH FITZGERALD

While Robert Malley sends, via intermediaries, his billets-doux to Iran’s negotiator Mohammed Javad Zarif in Vienna, Israel is sending a high-level delegation of security personnel, headed by Yossi Cohen, the director of Mossad, to Washington, hoping to make the case for American caution, rather than insensate haste, in returning to the JCPOA and lifting sanctions on Iran. A report on this difficult mission is here: “Israeli Security Officials Head to Washington to Share Iran Threat Intel as White House Says It Can’t Be Swayed on Nuclear Deal,” by Sharon Wrobel, Algemeiner, April 26, 2021:

A high-profile Israeli security delegation, headed by Mossad Director Yossi Cohen, is arriving in Washington this week to discuss the dangers of restoring the original 2015 Iranian nuclear accord just days after the White House signaled that the Biden administration will not be swayed to change its policy on the deal.

Ahead of the arrival of the delegation of Israeli senior security officials, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki on Friday answered “no” when asked at a press briefing whether the visit was likely to change the US administration’s stance on reviving the nuclear deal, to which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is strongly opposed.

How indecent of the Bidenites to proclaim to the Israelis, even before they arrive, in front of the whole world, that there is nothing they can say to the Americans that will change their minds. Their minds are made up. The Americans don’t want to be reminded that just a few months ago they were themselves talking about the need “to lengthen and strengthen” the agreement with Iran. They are in no mood to listen to their closest ally in the Middle East. They don’t want to listen to the Israelis, who know better than anyone what Iran is up to with its nuclear program, understand how it plans to comply, or to pretend to, with the JCPOA, and what it will do in 2030 when it is allowed its “break out” and can manufacture, completely legally, nuclear weapons. They don’t want to listen to the Israelis, even though Israel, not America, is the main target of Iran’s nuclear program. How many times has Iran threatened to destroy the Jewish state? The Bidenites don’t want to hear about it. They don’t want to listen to the Israelis, whose tiny country’s very survival may depend on what agreement is concluded with Iran in Vienna and who, therefore, have beyond all others earned the right to be heard. The indifference of the Biden people to Israel’s attempt to present its arguments against a return to the Iran deal is unspeakable.

Despite Psaki’s statement, Dore Gold, President of the Jerusalem Center of Public Affairs, argued that that “it is important that Israel shares all the relevant intelligence on Iran and articulates what the problem is with negotiating with Iran.”

The most persuasive arguments are made face-to-face,” Gold, who served as Director-General of the Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2015, told The Algemeiner. “In the past Israel and the US had different assumptions on Iranian behavior, which have now become even more pronounced. Iran’s record of compliance with signed agreements is very weak.”

Gold is too optimistic – or perhaps he simply won’t allow himself to believe that the Americans can be so idiotically close-minded.  He’s still talking about the value of making “arguments…face-to-face” but the Americans have already said that nothing that is presented to them, no information the Israelis bring with them about just-uncovered examples of Iranian deception, no news about Iran’s ballistic missile program, or the nuclear facilities just completed deep inside the mountain at Fordow, will change their minds. “Don’t confuse us with facts. Our minds are made up.”

…Michael Oren, Israel’s former Ambassador to the US, told The Algemeiner that he is concerned about the symbolic significance of the Israeli delegation traveling to Washington after the White House comments on Friday.

“This is kind of humiliating after Israel’s important ally in the Middle East said it will not listen. I would be very hesitant in sending this delegation,” Oren commented. “If we are going back to the JCPOA, which is flawed, there could be a very dangerous outcome.”

“There is a lot of visual appearance in this in that it shows that there was consultation with Israelis. We should be very careful [not] to legitimize the agreement,” Oren warned.

Oren is right: the Israelis are being humiliated by Jen Psaki’s unembarrassed acknowledgement that there is nothing the visitors can say, no new information that they may bring, that will change Administration minds. And by agreeing to meet with members of the delegation in Washington, the Biden people – Oren fears – can make it appear to Israel’s American supporters that they did, after all, consult with the Israelis.

…There are ongoing discussions — or negotiations, I should say, that are happening now — they’re indirect, of course — on the potential for a diplomatic path forward on the new — on a nuclear deal,” White House’s Psaki said on Friday. “As it relates to Israel, we have kept them abreast as a key partner of these discussions — or of our intentions, and we will continue to do that on any future visits.”

It is not true that the Bidenites have “kept them [the Israelis] abreast” of what’s been going on in Vienna. A great deal has not been shared, which is one source of Israeli anxiety. Nor has the Biden administration asked for Israel’s opinion on those negotiations, much less allowed any Israeli objections to be taken into account. The Biden administration wants this deal to go through. It will jump through whatever hoops the Iranians hold out. In February, it was still insisting that Iran had to go first, and fully return to the deal, before American sanctions would be lifted. Iran wouldn’t have it, and we no longer hear that condition precedent being mentioned.

Commenting on the ongoing talks in Vienna, Gold noted that “there is a real dilemma, because if you remove sanctions there is a huge windfall of funds that becomes available for terrorist activities in the Middle East and around the world. At least the Biden administration is talking about a longer and stronger deal but I don’t think that the Iranians will agree.”

Gold apparently hasn’t noticed that while the Biden administration did, very early on, talk about the need for a “longer and stronger deal,” it has ceased to mention that requirement altogether. Now it refers vaguely to another deal that might be reached after the return to the JCPOA by both sides is accomplished, but why would Iran at that point, having obtained the lifting of all the American sanctions, feel any pressure to agree to a second deal about ballistic missiles and regional aggression through proxies?

Gold suggested that before sanctions are lifted Iran needs to demonstrate that it has changed direction, that it will not help the Hezbollah in missile inventory, and that it is prepared to confine itself to the terms of a deal.

Dore Gold’s suggestions make sense, but there is not the slightest chance that Iran would agree to any of it, nor that the Biden administration would put the slightest pressure on Iran to accept it. The sanctions will be lifted without any further Iranian concessions on missiles to Hezbollah or anything else; sanctions-lifting will provide Iran with a bonanza calculated to be at least 100 billion dollars, money to spend on weapons for itself and for its proxies in Yemen, Iraq, and Lebanon. Once it has the money, Iran will do what it likes, which means it will violate many of the terms of the JCPOA, just as it did between 2015 and 2018, when Donald Trump put an end to the farce, withdrew from the deal, and clamped crippling sanctions on Iran, that were just starting to have a devastating effect on Iran’s economy when the Biden cavalry came riding to Tehran’s rescue. And Israel will have to recognize that when it comes to foiling Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the Jewish state is now very much on its own.

 

Hizballah accused of turning Lebanon into ‘drug smuggling, terrorism hub’ under ‘Iran occupation’

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

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

Saudi Arabia declared last August that Hizballah has destroyed Lebanon — including its “constitutional and state institutions.” Saudi King Salman stated that the only way for Lebanon to break free is to disarm Hizballah. Salman even blamed the Beirut blasts on the “hegemony of Hezbollah, a terrorist organization affiliated with Iran.”

Lebanese authorities are in now evidently in agreement.

Once again, Iran continues to expand its influence throughout the Middle East, and via Hizballah, its influence extends worldwide. No nuclear deal would stop its expansion; in fact, it would have the opposite effect: it would enable hundreds of billions to flow into Iran’s coffers to further expand its nuclear program, as well as its regional and global power.

Adding to the woes of Lebanon stemming from Hizballah’s influence, the country’s farmers fear that “a recent produce ban by Saudi Arabia will be a decisive blow to their livelihoods.” Saudi Arabia has announced “an indefinite ban on Lebanese agricultural products after foiling an attempt to smuggle 5.3 million pills of the illegal amphetamine Captagon hidden in a shipment of pomegranates at Jeddah Port.”

Western leaders should unite against Iran and its proxies. Instead, Iran is haughtily swindling Western leaders into a new nuke deal.

“Saudi And Lebanese Accusations: Hizbullah Is Operating A Network For Smuggling Drugs To Saudi Arabia And The Region; It Has Turned Lebanon Into A Base For Exporting Drugs And Terrorism,” by Z. Harel and H. Varulkar, MEMRI, April 28, 2021:

Introduction

On April 23, 2021, customs authorities at the Saudi port of Jeddah announced that they had thwarted an attempt to smuggle drugs – mainly Captagon (fenethylline hydrochloride) pills, an amphetamine drug popular in the Middle East – in a shipment of pomegranates arriving from Lebanon. Subsequently, the Saudi Interior Ministry announced that beginning April 25, the country would accept no Lebanese imports of agricultural produce. The ministry added that it had previously warned Lebanese authorities about the increase in drug smuggling attempts from its territory, and that the ban would remain in force until the Lebanese authorities “provide satisfactory and documented guarantees that they have taken the necessary steps to stop the systematic smuggling against the kingdom.”[1]

Addressing the increase in smuggling attempts from Lebanon to Saudi Arabia, Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Walid Al-Boukhari tweeted that in the past six years over 600 million pills and hundreds of kilos of hashish from Lebanon had been seized by Saudi authorities, and that the drugs smuggled via this route during that time “could drown the entire Arab world, not just Saudi Arabia.”[2] Additionally, Saudi Interior Minister Prince ‘Abd Al-‘Aziz bin Saud bin Naif tweeted that “the kingdom’s security is a red line.” [3]

On their part, the Lebanese authorities hastened to condemn the drug smuggling from Lebanon, and stressed that they would step up their efforts to prevent further smuggling.[4] In an April 26 meeting convened by Lebanese President Michel ‘Aoun, with Prime Minister Hassan Diab, ministers, and security and customs directors, ‘Aoun stressed that Lebanon was working hard to maintain good relations with the Arab countries and to preserve these countries’ security and stability. Also at the meeting, ‘Aoun called on the country’s security apparatuses to step up the fight against smuggling and those behind it,[5] and a series of measures for increased oversight of agricultural exports was put in place.[6]

As expected, the incident sparked widespread interest in Saudi Arabia. Although top Saudi government officials did not implicate any specific element in Lebanon for the drug shipment, the Saudi press published many articles and op-eds pointing at Hizbullah. Stating that Hizbullah was functioning as an organized crime network and had turned Lebanon into a base for waging direct war on Saudi Arabia, they added that the latest attempt to smuggle drugs into Saudi Arabia was one of many, and that the organization was acting to flood the kingdom with drugs in order to destroy it and bankroll its terror activity in the region.

There was also harsh criticism of Hizbullah in Lebanon, where journalists and politicians accused the organization and its political allies, including President ‘Aoun, of responsibility for drug smuggling and its impact on the country’s agriculture and economy, already in grave crisis. They accused the organization and the groups ruling Lebanon of bringing the country under occupation by Iran, of turning it into a hub for drug smuggling and terrorism, and of starving and weakening the Lebanese people. Some Lebanese politicians even defended the measures taken by the Saudis.

Hizbullah has not yet issued an official response, but articles published on its website and in the Al-Akbar daily, which is close to the organization, denied that Hizbullah was involved in smuggling drugs into Saudi Arabia. They also stressed that Saudi Arabia was falsely accusing Hizbullah in order to harm it and to bend Lebanon to its will. Another claim was that stopping Lebanese agricultural produce from entering Saudi Arabia was a purely political move, and that the Saudis were trying to starve the Lebanese people.

Charges that Hizbullah’s activities are bankrolled by the drug trade are nothing new.[7] A U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) task force has, since 2008, been monitoring a global syndicate created by Hizbullah, with an estimated annual profit of over $1 billion from drugs and weapons.[8] In recent years, massive shipments of drugs smuggled by ship from Syria and Lebanon have been seized across the Mediterranean basin and the Middle East. For example, in June 2020, Italian authorities apprehended a billion dollars’ worth of Captagon arriving from Syria.[9] In light of this, and in light of the intense suspicion that Hizbullah was behind it, Hizbullah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah, in a January 2021 speech, vehemently denied the accusations and clarified that any activity connected to drugs was forbidden by Islam and the penalty for it was death. He added that any operative found to be linked to drugs was immediately and permanently banned from the organization.[10]…

German intelligence: Iran, Syria, and Pakistan are producing weapons of mass destruction

This should be well known among all Western leaders and citizens alike, but it’s good to see it backed up by an intelligence report. The threat of states such as Iran and Pakistan, and Syria also to a lesser degree, is based in large part on Islamic doctrines of warfare against unbelievers. The chief threat is, of course, Iran: “The German intelligence agency for the state of Bavaria said last week in its new report that the Islamic Republic of Iran has not ceased its drive to obtain weapons of mass destruction during 2020.” Iran has never slowed down, and no deal will stop it. Its violation of the nuclear deal by its own admission is long-established. The whole deal was based on lies.

Iran’s proxy Hizballah also expands Iran’s global reach. The German report specifically lists “additional threats to Bavaria’s democracy” via Hizballah, noting that Hizballah, “the Iranian regime’s chief strategic ally in the Middle East, has 30 members in Bavaria.”

Continuing to clamp down on the activities of Iran and Hizballah globally requires a prioritized followup from democratic countries, which isn’t happening, particularly now with a weakened United States and Canada and a predominantly globalist EU.

Going beyond Bavaria, although “the US, Canada, the Arab League, Israel, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and many other European and Latin American countries classify Hezbollah as a terrorist organization,” Hizballah is still disturbingly active in these countries. For example, while Canada focuses on “Islamophobia,” Hizballah expands its elite operations in the country, and millions of dollars are wired into the country. Similarly, Hizballah has ongoing operations in the UK, in the US, Germany, and in the Netherlands. Being outlawed is merely a start.

“Iran still seeks mass destruction weapons – German intelligence report,” by Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, April 28, 2021:

The German intelligence agency for the state of Bavaria said last week in its new report that the Islamic Republic of Iran has not ceased its drive to obtain weapons of mass destruction during 2020.

“Proliferation-relevant states like Iran, North Korea, Syria and Pakistan are making efforts to expand their conventional arsenal of weapons through the production or constant modernization of weapons of mass destruction,” wrote the Bavarian Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the formal name for the domestic intelligence agency.

“In order to obtain the necessary know-how and corresponding components, these states are trying to establish business contacts to companies in high-technology countries like Germany,” said the Bavarian intelligence report in its section on weapons of mass destruction.

The German agency is the rough equivalent of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency).

The intelligence report defines proliferation as “the unauthorized spread of atomic, biological, chemical weapons of mass destruction or the products used for their manufacture as well as the corresponding weapon carrier systems, including the necessary know-how.”

With respect to the section of the report on the Islamic Republic’s espionage activities, the intelligence document stated that “Germany remains in the focus of intelligence activities. This includes information from foreign and security policy as well as business and science. An additional focus [of Iran’s intelligence services] is the observation of, and fight against, opposition groups domestically and abroad.”

The Jerusalem Post reviewed the 380-page intelligence document which contains 28 references to the Islamic Republic. The report lists additional threats to Bavaria’s democracy.

Hezbollah, the Iranian regime’s chief strategic ally in the Middle East, has 30 members in Bavaria….

Presbyterian Church USA and Anti-Israel Actions When ‘Presbyterian’ becomes synonymous with Jew-hate.

The Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) has been gradually moving to the radical left spectrum. Moderates have been leaving the church in droves in recent decades. As of 2019, the PCUSA membership numbered 1.3 million, down from 3.1 million in 1993. Its radical social justice agenda has come at the expense of traditional values. Chased away by the radicalization of the church, many have found the evangelical (Protestant) churches far more appealing. The issues that the PCUSA officialdom has gotten involved with go beyond domestic issues, such as taking sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The church officialdom has supported Palestinian Muslim terrorists, seeking to undermine the Jewish state by condemning Israel’s efforts to protect its citizenry from Arab-Palestinian killers. The “woke” PCUSA is enamored with radical Palestinians whom the PCUSA has designated as “victims.”

At its latest 2020 General Assembly (GA) in Baltimore, the PCUSA has adopted the radical left terminology, using the term “White Supremacy.” This is clearly in accord with the Marxist, racist, and anti-Semitic Black Lives Matter (BLM). Pandering to the BLM’s agenda means that only Black Lives Matter, while Jewish lives and property do not matter. In last summer’s riots and looting by the BLM and Antifa groups, Jewish places of worship in LA were desecrated, shops were burned, and white people beaten. The Times of Israel reported (June 3, 2020) that, “Graffiti on the walls of synagogues read ‘free Palestine’ and ‘f*** Israel.’ A statue of Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Nazis, was smeared with anti-Semitic slogans. Along with synagogues, Jewish-owned buildings, and stores were defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti. Businesses were looted, too.” The Times of Israel also pointed out that the Jewish-owned Canter Deli was spared destruction because it posted a sign expressing solidarity with the BLM movement, out of fear and intimidation.

The same PCUSA officials who rush to condemn Israel and “White Supremacy” said nothing of the BLM’s riots, looting, and anti-Semitic slogans they smeared on defaced synagogues. The same anti-Semitic and radical elements that dominate the political left today now controls the resolutions issued and passed by the PCUSA. While alleging to be serving the cause of social justice, the PCUSA radicals engage in supporting the likes of the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel only) anti-Semitic attacks against the Jewish state, and by extension, on supporters of Israel in general.

If the biennial GA in 2020 was marked by limitations caused by the coronavirus pandemic, no such limitations occurred in the 2018 General Assembly in St. Louis, Missouri. The Israel/Palestine Mission Network (IPMN) once again championed support for the anti-Israel BDS movement by passing a number of resolutions condemning Israel. Bassem Eid, a Palestinian Muslim civil-rights activist who attended the GA in order to bring balance and fairness on issues pertaining to Israel/Palestine, was verbally attacked for condemning the one-sided resolutions offered by the PCUSA against the Jewish state.

The PCUSA GA News reported (June 19, 2018) that, “Eleven out of 13 resolutions considered by the (Middle East) Committee addressed issues surrounding Israel/Palestine. The committee rejected one resolution condemning the militarization of Palestinian children to be used in attacks against Israeli civilians. The committee also disapproved a resolution that would no longer classify Israel as a “colonial Project.”

The sheer chutzpah and shamelessness, not to mention the ignorance and malice of the PCUSA Middle East committee, is simply astounding. They have obviously ignored the Bible and G-d’s promise to the Children of Israel. Clearly, for the radical leftists in the PCUSA, the Bible no longer matters. However, aside from the biblical confirmation of the Jewish rights to the land and two Jewish commonwealths that even the Quran affirms (Jews/Israelites were the only people that created a national life in the land, all others were conquerors. While the Romans exiled the Jews and destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem, Jews always clung to the land of Israel), there is the November 1947 United Nations Partition resolution (#181) passed by a two-third majority and adopted. It called for the creation of both a Jewish and Arab sovereign state in Palestine, which ended the colonial British Mandate. While the Jewish-Palestinians accepted the partition, and on May 14, 1948, declared the establishment of the State of Israel, the Arab-Palestinians rejected the partition and statehood, and together with seven neighboring Arab states, set out to destroy the nascent Jewish state of Israel. There would be no Arab-Palestinian refugee problem today had they accepted partition. A peaceful relationship with their Jewish neighbors was never an option considered by the Palestinian-Arabs. They were led by an arch anti-Semite and racist, Haj Amin el-Husseini, who was Hitler’s ally and urged the German Nazis to liquidate the Jews of Palestine in the same way they had dealt with European Jewry. The Arab-Palestinians gambled on the destruction of the Jews of Israel even in the aftermath of the Holocaust.

The anti-Israel sentiments within the PCUSA establishment is clearly evident in the rejection of the above two resolutions while adopting all the anti-Israel resolutions. Apparently, the PCUSA wants to score points against Israel by sacrificing Palestinian-Arab children in order to adopt further anti-Israel resolutions. Of course, killing Israeli civilians by terrorist Palestinian children is encouraged by the PCUSA. The GA had, in addition, urged the real estate company RE/MAX, LLC, “to do everything within its legal and moral power to stop facilitating the sale of property in Israeli settlement colonies.” They also condemned “Violence against Palestinians during the Great March of Return protests along the Gaza Strip.”

As a witness to the so-called “March of Return protests,” it must be said first, that it was a violent march, with Hamas and Islamic Jihad snipers targeting Israeli soldiers. Second, bombs attached to kites torched Israeli agricultural fields in the Israeli Negev. Of course, one would not expect the PCUSA radicals to acknowledge such Palestinian terror. Moreover, unprovoked, Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza have regularly, and intentionally, fired rockets at Israeli civilians and children. The edict by the PCUSA of not selling homes to Jews in Judea and Samaria is reminiscent of the Nazi boycotts. Judea and Samaria Jewish settlements are legal as pointed out by former US secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The territories are disputed territories under the UNSC resolution 242. And since there has never been a Palestinian state, they are hardly “Palestinian territories,” and Israelis have as much right to settle there as Palestinian-Arabs do.

Much of the anti-Israel action by the PCUSA has been driven by the IPMN. In the 2014 GA, the PCUSA approved an anti-Israel divestment measure. The anti-Israel measures continued in the 2016 GA with several resolutions aimed to pressure Israel to leave the disputed territories of Judea and Samaria.

Dexter Van Zile, a research fellow at the Committee for Accuracy in the Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA), and a Christian believer pointed out in his Times of Israel blog (May 9, 2018) that a relatively small number of anti-Israel activists in the PCUSA have effectively hijacked the denomination’s polity and used it to affirm a dishonest narrative that portrays Israel as a singular enemy of human rights in the Middle East. Van Zile suggested that “Over the past decade or so, the word ‘Presbyterian’ has become synonymous with Jew-hatred and unreasonable hostility toward Israel.”

U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations calls on Biden to appoint special envoy to monitor, combat ‘Islamophobia’

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

Should the USCMO succeed in its goal to see a special envoy to “monitor and combat Islamophobia” in America, the systematic hunting down of organizations and individuals who offend Islam would be in order. And the guidelines on what constitutes an offense to Islam would be determined by the USCMO. In such a scenario, the First Amendment would be rendered null and void.

The USCMO call comes less than a week after Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan issued his own call for Muslim Muslim-majority countries to unite to lobby Western governments to criminalize “blasphemy against Islam.

He also issued a threat:

There will come a time when people in the West will think twice before disrespecting the Prophet.

A month ago, Pakistan joined the Organization of Islamic Cooperation for a first-ever “International Day to Combat Islamophobia.”

In 2014, Investors Business Daily published important information about the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations in an article titled: Muslim Brotherhood Launches Own U.S. Political Party.

According to the article:

“Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.

“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”

USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.

Indeed there is nothing “benign” about the USCMO. But how far its agenda will go now rests with Joe Biden — a sobering thought.

Among the USCMO’s principles of engagement:

We believe that Islam’s principles of justice should inspire, guide, and limit the public policies that Muslim Americans support, as well as the political strategies we use to advance those policies.

Installing an “anti-Islamophobia” envoy would implant Sharia in mainstream America. Groups which are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood have no place in any Western country. To such groups, it isn’t enough that many Western countries already have hate crime laws in place. Their agenda is to subjugate Western societies.

The concept of “Islamophobia,” which is heavily promoted by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, incorporates offense to Islam. Pakistan, which is infamous for its harsh blasphemy laws, is also notorious for steadily pushing the “Islamophobia” agenda on a global scale.  Turkey does the same.

“Muslim umbrella organization urges Biden to name special envoy to counter growing Islamophobia,” Associated Press of Pakistan, April 25, 2021:

NEW YORK, Apr 25 (APP):A coalition of American Muslim organizations has called on President Joe Biden to appoint a special envoy to monitor and combat Islamophobia, which is on the rise in the United States.

In a letter to the president , the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) said such an envoy at the State Department could help address the Islamophobia that affects the third largest religious group in the country. The envoy could support efforts both in the United States and internationally against anti-Muslim hate crimes and where Muslims are denied constitutional rights.

The White House did not respond to questions about whether the administration will appoint a special envoy to combat Islamophobia, according to ‘USA TODAY’, which carried a report based on USCMO’s letter to President Biden.

In this regard, the newspaper highlighted Biden’s statement condemning violence against Muslim-Americans that he made at the start of the holy month of Ramadan.

“Muslim Americans continue to be targeted by bullying, bigotry and hate crimes,” he had said. “This prejudice and these attacks are wrong. They are unacceptable. And they must stop. No one in America should ever live in fear of expressing his or her faith. And my administration will work tirelessly to protect the rights and safety of all people.”

Soon. after assuming power, Biden repealed a 2017 executive order by former President Donald Trump that prevented nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.

A State Department spokesperson said the department could not speak to any potential nominations, USA TODAY said.

“The Biden administration remains fully committed to promoting universal respect for freedom of religion or belief for all, including for members of Muslim communities worldwide,” the spokesperson said. “We continue to prioritize efforts to engage with Muslims around the world on issues of mutual interest, in support of shared goals, and to advance U.S. foreign policy.”

The Office of International Religious Freedom also tracks incidents of anti-Muslim abuses and engages with Muslim communities and Muslim leaders around the world, the department said.

Along with appointing a State Department special envoy, the group requested that Biden include Muslims at every level of government, meet with Muslim community leaders and pursue systemic policy reforms to address anti-Muslim discrimination.

Council Secretary General Oussama Jammal told USA TODAY that Muslims “have a real and genuine concern about the rise of Islamophobia.”

“We don’t believe (Islamophobia) is subsiding. We have a real and present danger that we have to consider. And we have to take every precaution to protect our communities and our civil rights,” Jammal said.

The Armenian Genocide Continues~Far from merely acknowledging it, Turkey and other Muslims are hell-bent on reigniting the genocide.

BY RAYMOND IBRAHIM

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

Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.  This article first appeared on the Gatestone Institute.

Note: Soon after this article was published, President Biden became the first sitting U.S. president formally to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide.  Ramifications of this will be discussed in another article by Mr. Ibrahim later this week.

April 24 was Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, marking 106 years since the start of the Armenian Genocide when the Ottoman Turks massacred approximately 1.5 million Armenians during World War I.

Most objective historians who have examined the topic unequivocally agree that it was a deliberate, calculated genocide. According to the Genocide Education Project:

More than one million Armenians perished as the result of execution, starvation, disease, the harsh environment, and physical abuse.  A people who lived in eastern Turkey for nearly 3,000 years [more than double the amount of time the invading Islamic Turks had occupied Anatolia, now known as “Turkey”] lost its homeland and was profoundly decimated in the first large-scale genocide of the twentieth century.  At the beginning of 1915 there were some two million Armenians within Turkey; today there are fewer than 60,000….

Despite the vast amount of evidence that points to the historical reality of the Armenian Genocide, eyewitness accounts, official archives, photographic evidence, the reports of diplomats, and the testimony of survivors, denial of the Armenian Genocide by successive regimes in Turkey has gone on from 1915 to the present.

Not only has Turkey repeatedly denied culpability for the Armenian Genocide; it appears intent on reigniting it, most recently by helping Azerbaijan wage war on Armenia in the context of the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute, which again erupted in late 2020.

As Nikol Pashinyan, Armenia’s prime minister, observed in October 2020: “Why has Turkey returned to the South Caucasus 100 years [after the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire]? To continue the Armenian Genocide.”

During this recent conflict that did not concern it, Turkey funded and funneled sharia-enforcing “jihadist groups,” in the words of French president Macron, that had been operating in Syria and Libya—including the pro-Muslim Brotherhood Hamza Division, which kept naked, sex slave women in prison—to terrorize and slaughter Armenians.

Among other ISIS-like behavior, these mercenaries and their Azerbaijani partners “tortured beyond recognition” an intellectually disabled 58-year-old Armenian woman by hacking off her ears, hands, and feet, before murdering her.  Her family was only able to identify her by her clothes.   

“Armenians,” according to a December 2020 report, “are being brutalized” and have “lost territory to their jihadist neighbors before agreeing to a cease-fire enforced by Russia.... Prior to violating the so-called peace agreement, the Turkish Muslims of Azerbaijan did as Muhammad commanded in beheading Christians.”

The report linked to a video of soldiers in camouflage overpowering a struggling, elderly Armenian man to the ground, before casually carving at his throat with a knife.

“Azerbaijan has accused Armenia of violating the peace deal first,” the report continues, “but observers note the only provocation Muslims need to attack Armenians is their continued existence.”

Anti-infidel rhetoric underscores this view. A captured terrorist confessed that he was “promised a monthly 2000 dollar payment for fighting against ‘kafirs’ in Artsakh, and an extra 100 dollar for each beheaded ‘kafir.’” (Kafir, often translated as “infidel,” is Arabic for non-Muslims who fail to submit to Islamic authority, which by default makes them enemies worthy of slavery or death.)

Similarly, Armenian churches that came under Azerbaijani control have been desecrated—despite promises from the authorities to protect them.  In one instance, a soldier—unclear whether an Azeri or a jihadi mercenary from Syria or Iraq—was videotaped standing atop a church chapel, where the cross had been broken off, and triumphantly shouting “Allahu Akbar!”   Azerbaijani forces also shelled and destroyed Holy Savior, an iconic Armenian cathedral which was “consecrated in 1888 but was damaged during the March 1920 massacre of Armenians of the city by Azerbaijanis and experienced a decades-long decline.”

More recently, according to a March 29, 2021 report, over the course of just two weeks, at least three Armenian churches in the Nagorno-Karabakh region were recently vandalized or destroyed by Azerbaijani forces—even though a ceasefire was declared in November.  Video footage of the desecration of one of these churches shows Azerbaijani troops entering the Christian place of worship, and then laughing, mocking, kicking, and defacing Christian items inside it, including a fresco of the Last Supper.  Turkey’s flag appears on the Azerbaijani servicemen’s uniform, further implicating the Erdogan government of involvement.  As they approach, one of the Muslim soldiers says, “Let’s now enter their church, where I will perform namaz.”  (Namaz is a reference to Muslim prayers; when Muslims pray inside non-Muslim temples, they immediately become mosques.)  In response to this video, Arman Tatoyan, an Armenian human rights activist, issued a statement:

The President of Azerbaijan and the country’s authorities have been implementing a policy of hatred, enmity, ethnic cleansing and genocide against Armenia, citizens of Armenia and the Armenian people for years.  The Turkish authorities have done the same or have openly encouraged the same policy.

By way of example, he said that Azerbaijan’s President Aliyev proudly stated in early March that “the younger generation has grown up with hatred toward the enemy,” meaning Armenians.

Such hate, which is a precursor to genocide, seems evident everywhere.  One need only listen to a Turkish man rant in a video about how all Armenians are “dogs,” and that any found in Turkey should be slaughtered for an idea of the impetus fueling this hate:

What is an Armenian doing in my country? Either the state expels them or we kill them.  Why do we let them live?… We will slaughter them when the time comes…. This is Turkish soil.  How are we Ottoman grandchildren?….  The people of Turkey who have honor, dignity, and Allah must cut the heads of the Armenians in Turkey.  It is dishonorable for anyone to meet and not kill an Armenian… If we are human, let us do this—let us do it for Allah…. Everyone listening, if you love Allah, please spread this video of me to everyone…

Similarly, in response to a question being asked to random passersby on the streets of Turkey—“If you could get away with one thing, what would you do?”—a woman recently replied on video: “What would I do? Behead 20 Armenians.”  She then looked directly at the camera, and smiled while nodding her head.

Much of this genocidal hate is unsurprising, considering that Turkish public school textbooks continue demonizing Armenians—in fact, Christians in general, and Jews—as a recent study found.

If Turks, who are not affected by the Armenian/Azerbaijani conflict, feel this way, it should be unsurprising that any number of Azerbaijanis do too.  Thus, for Nurlan Ibrahimov, head of the press service of Qarabag football club of Azerbaijan, “We [Azerbaijanis] must kill all Armenians—children, women, the elderly. [We] need to kill [them] without [making a] distinction. No regrets, no compassion.”

Accordingly, in the context of Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, it is well to remember not only what happened then, but what is being primed to happen again.

Nikki Haley to Newsmax TV: Kerry ‘Disgusting,’ Should Be Off Security Council FOR REVEALING to Iran information on military operations that had been conducted by Israel

Special Climate Envoy John Kerry denies allegations he detailed covert Israeli operations to Iran. Fox News senior strategic analyst Gen. Jack Keane reacts amid growing U.S. tensions with the regime.

Sen. Dan Sullivan: "I rise today on the Senate floor to call for the resignation of John Kerry as a member of the Biden administration's National Security Council.":

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and ex-South Carolina governor, on Monday called President Joe Biden’s special climate envoy, John Kerry, “disgusting” and said he should be yanked off the National Security Council for revealing to Iran information on military operations that had been conducted by Israel.

Appearing on Newsmax TV, Haley was incensed at a report that Iran Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told an Iranian academic – in a conversation that was recorded – that Kerry, as secretary of state under President Barack Obama, disclosed details on some 200 incidences in which Israel attacked Iranian targets in Syria.

“This is truly horrifying,” Haley said on “Rob Schmitt Tonight." “I mean the idea that Kerry would do this is appalling in its own right, but Biden and Kerry have to answer for this. He should not be sitting on the National Security Council. He shouldn't be involved with any of our foreign policy if this is what he does. 

“And then the worst part is to stab our ally Israel in the back, and take up for Iran, who's the largest state sponsor of terrorism? It's ... ludicrous.”

The alleged disclosure was detailed in a New York Times story, which obtained a copy of the audio recording. The result: a series of condemnations directed at Kerry, who was involved in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA – better known as the “Iran nuclear deal.”

Kerry has denied the claims by Zarif, taking to Twitter on Monday to bluntly call them “unequivocally false.”

But Haley seemed unconvinced by Kerry’s version of events, suggesting that it fit a pattern set by Obama and his vice president, Joe Biden.

“You know, it goes back to Obama that says ‘Obama 2.0,” Haley said. “Obama loved Iran. I mean and he took it to Israel every chance he got and they've been humiliated by them right until the very end. And you know, now we're watching. Basically, Biden's falling all over himself to do business with Iran again, which is just everyone around the world is not going to understand why. 

“Biden is doing this, but really to do. This to our friend Israel is just disgusting. It is unbelievable. It doesn't make any sense.”

Sharia in action in Iran: Five men to have fingers amputated for theft

BY ROBERT SPENCER

The abominable Daily Mail states: “But under Iran’s Islamic Penal Code, amputation of limbs is considered a suitable punishment for theft.”

Iran didn’t originate this. It’s from the Qur’an. “The thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they earned as a deterrent from Allah. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.” (Qur’an 5:38)

The Iranians are only amputating fingers. They’re moderate.

In any case, this is the Sharia. When you suggest it is not compatible with Western values, you’re guilty of “bigotry.”

“Five men face having their fingers amputated for stealing under brutal Islamic penal code in Iran,” by Adam Barnett, MailOnline, April 22, 2021 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Five men in Iran could have their fingers amputated as a punishment for stealing under the country’s brutal Islamic penal code.

Behnam Sina and four others were found guilty of breaking into 22 homes across Tehran, the capital city.

The men are being held at Branch Ten of the Criminal Court of Tehran and have contested the charges, admitting to only a few of the burglaries.

But under Iran’s Islamic Penal Code, amputation of limbs is considered a suitable punishment for theft.

Of the 22 households burgled, eight were present during the court hearing.

Six of the households demanded the return of their stolen property and called for the amputation of the thieves’ fingers if the property could not be returned.

At least one other victim might seek amputation as punishment in place of the return of their stolen money and gold.

The final decision on sentencing has yet to be made by the Tehran court….

Biden Administration Directly Aiding and Abetting Hamas-Linked CAIR

KERRY THOMAS:

Sources inside the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report to Understanding the Threat (UTT) that FEMA and DHS officials participated in a private webinar last Friday (April 9th) hosted by the designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) Hamas, doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) which was attended by leaders of prominent U.S. Islamic jihadi organizations.

The purpose of this webinar was for these government officials to give precise details to the hostile U.S. Islamic Movement on how to obtain U.S. government grant money to structurally harden mosques and Islamic organizations, and, according to CAIR’s website, was entitled Protecting Muslim Community Centers and Mosques: The 2021 Nonprofit Security Grant Program and Safety and Security Federal Resources.

The two key government officials participating in this webinar and instructing leaders of the U.S. Islamic Movement were: Kerry Thomas, Director of Preparedness Grants Division (PGD) within Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Grant Programs Directorate (GPD); and Mark Silveira, Executive Officer, DHS/FEMA Grant Programs.

It should be noted that the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was created in 1994 by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee which is the designated terrorist organization Hamas in the United States.

In official court filings in the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history – US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (“HLF”), Northern District of Texas (Dallas), 2008 – CAIR is identified as a member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee (Hamas).

For more information that CAIR is Hamas click HERE.

If what sources are reporting is correct, UTT assesses this constitutes a direct and material support for terrorists, the government’s direct involvement in a conspiracy to overthrow the Republic – by the fact the U.S. Islamic Movement’s stated objective is the overthrow of the U.S. governmental system and aiding & abetting a terrorist organization, among other federal violations of law, which may include sedition and treason.

UTT requested an official response from FEMA/DHS to the following questions:

  1. Is FEMA/DHS aware CAIR is a front organization for the designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) Hamas?
  2. Did FEMA/DHS get an internal legal ruling from FEMA/DHS attorneys to materially support an organization directly tied to a designated terrorist organization?  If so, can we get a copy of such an opinion?
  3. Is it the new policy and intention of FEMA/DHS under the current administration to give material support to a designated terrorist organization?

The request was made Tuesday morning 4/13/21. DHS did contact UTT and stated they would provide a response, likely by close of business Tuesday, but UTT has received no official response to these questions as of today (4/15/21).

Sources also revealed the Biden regime is making changes to U.S. government grant program policies which will be significantly beneficial to the U.S. Islamic Movement, whose stated objective is to overthrow the U.S. government and replace it with an Islamic State governed by “Allah's divine law”/sharia.

Specifically, hostile Islamic organizations will be given grant money with no requirement of these organizations to share information they may have about hostile actors (jihadis) or activities inside the U.S. Muslim community, which is something Hamas/CAIR has been pursuing for quite a while.

The Grant Director for U.S.-based Hamas dba CAIR is Megan Fair, and UTT is following up to see if she coordinated this event.

The contents of the webinar are not available for public viewing as of yet, but apparently lasted approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Iraq: Islamic State is still holding and selling captive Iraqi Yazidi women as sex slaves

“ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) is still holding and selling captive Iraqi Yazidi women as slaves, and now some of these slave sales are being carried out on the dark web.” It’s an old practice that did not begin with the Islamic State:

The seizure of Infidel girls and their use as sex slaves is sanctioned in the Qur’an. According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful for you your wives to whom you have paid their dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses of those whom Allah has given you as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave girls: “The believers must win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or the captives whom their right hands possess, for in their case they are free from blame.” (Qur’an 23:1-6)

Muslim rape gangs in Britain are an extension of such practice.

In 2016, sex slaves of the Islamic State were being auctioned off in Saudi Arabia, and the practice goes far beyond Saudi Arabia. It’s historic:

Slave auctions have been going on in the Middle East and Africa for thousands of years. Despite energetic anti-slavery campaigns by European nations in the 19th and 20th centuries, slavery persists in parts of the Middle East and Africa. Most of the slavers are Moslems who invoke their scripture (the Koran) as justification for continued enslavement of non-Moslems…

“Murphy’s Law: ISIL Slaving Survives”, Strategy Page, April 17, 2021:

ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) is still holding and selling captive Iraqi Yazidi women as slaves, and now some of these slave sales are being carried out on the dark web. These are internet sites that are deliberately kept from being found and listed by Internet search engines, like Google. All manner of secretive business takes place on the dark web, much of it of a criminal nature. Access to dark web sites is difficult to obtain, but once the web ID is known the owners and users can sometimes be tracked down. At the very least the server (hard drive holding the web site data and connected to the web) can be seized or forced to disconnect because it is now known. Dark web sites are used by smugglers, especially people smugglers who are moving or literally selling captive women. In one early 2021 incident Turkish police were notified that a seven-year-old Yazidi girl was being offered for sale. Families often continue searching for enslaved children and have found that dark web auction sites will often offer women or girls. The slavers don’t care if kin of their captive made the highest bid just to get a child or young girl back. In this case the relatives contacted Turkish police to assist, fearing that they might robbed by the kidnappers when they went to deliver the money and get the girl. Police staked out the pickup location and arrested the Iraqi men who had captured the girl and brought her to Turkey to sell her for a higher price via a dark web auction.

Slave auctions have been going on in the Middle East and Africa for thousands of years. Despite energetic anti-slavery campaigns by European nations in the 19th and 20th centuries, slavery persists in parts of the Middle East and Africa. Most of the slavers are Moslems who invoke their scripture (the Koran) as justification for continued enslavement of non-Moslems, particularly women and girls. Islamic conservatives are responsible for most of the surviving slavery and they are now assisted by criminal gangs that specialize in moving illegal migrants to Western countries. Some of these migrants are enslaved women being sold into prostitution….

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

House passes bill stopping any future president from imposing ‘travel ban on the basis of religion’

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/04/house-passes-bill;

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

The list of countries of concern that the Trump administration outlined in an executive order was based on the document devised by the former Obama administration. Despite the fact that it was Obama who set the foundation, it is Trump who is persistently criticized as being discriminatory against Muslims. Obama restricted visa waivers for seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen. The restriction was based on security issues. But we didn’t hear any Leftist outcry about Obama being “racist” against Muslims or discriminatory.

This new bill is nothing but virtue-signaling, and wouldn’t even have stopped Trump’s bans, for they were not based on religion, but on security.

It just happens to be the case that among the world’s most egregious violators of human rights and hotbeds of terrorism are many Muslim countries. Does this new bill now mean that such countries when they are Muslim-majority are no longer dangerous? Does it mean that America should permit open immigration from any country, no matter how violent, as to not offend Muslims and the woke crowd?

As absurd as all this is, it is the premise of the irrational policies that are being instituted by the Biden administration. The administration is willing to put national security at risk as to not offend Islam. America continues a rapid descent downwards; Sharia tenets are being institutionalized, while the strictures and policies of Communism are being increasingly normalized.

“US House passes bill to prevent another ‘Muslim ban,’” by William Roberts, Al Jazeera, April 21, 2021:

The US House of Representatives has passed a bill that would limit the ability of any United States president to impose a travel ban on the basis of religion, a move that was welcomed by civil rights advocates as “a major step forward”.

The legislation, known informally as the NO BAN Act, comes in response to former President Donald Trump’s controversial “Muslim ban” that barred travel to the US from several Muslim-majority countries.

The bill, which must also pass in the US Senate to become law, was approved by a 218-208 vote in the House on Wednesday.

“The Muslim ban tore families apart, put lives on hold for years and labelled Muslims, Africans and other targeted people as threatening outsiders,” said Madihha Ahussain, counsel to Muslim Advocates, a US civil rights group.

“We must ensure that no president can enact discriminatory bans like this ever again and with the passage of the NO BAN Act in the House, we are taking a major step forward to ensuring that they won’t,” Ahussain said in a statement as the bill was passed…

Turkey’s foreign minister: ‘We are opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood being declared a terrorist organization’

Turkey has for quite some time been in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood. It even welcomed Brotherhood leaders who had been forced to leave Qatar after heavy pressure from Gulf countries. But that was almost seven years ago. In February of last year, an Egyptian human rights group openly accused Qatar and Turkey of funding the Muslim Brotherhood group that had been designated as terrorist by the Egyptian government. By October, the leading British think tank, the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation at King’s College London, concluded that Qatar and Turkey were bankrolling Muslim Brotherhood networks and organizations all across Europe, including the Muslim Council of Britain.

In 2019, a shocking declaration was made by Turkey’s ruling AK Party. It threatened “that if the United States designated the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization, it would hamper democratization efforts in the Middle East and serve militant groups like Islamic State.”

“Turkey Says It Still Opposes Egypt Labeling Muslim Brotherhood ‘Terrorists,'” Reuters, April 20, 2021:

ANKARA (Reuters) -Turkey remains opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood being declared “terrorists” by Egypt despite a recent push to repair strained ties between the two countries, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday.

He said Turkey viewed the Muslim Brotherhood as a political movement.

Last month, Turkey said it had resumed diplomatic contacts with Egypt, eight years after ties crumbled over the Egyptian army toppling a Muslim Brotherhood president close to Ankara in 2013.

Asked about Turkey’s ties with the Muslim Brotherhood in an interview with broadcaster Haberturk, Cavusoglu said Turkey’s international ties were not based on parties or individuals, and that Ankara’s issue with Cairo stemmed from what it views as a “coup”.

“We were against the coup in Egypt, not because it was the Muslim Brotherhood. If (Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al) Sisi was in office that day and somebody else had carried out a coup, we would shown the same principled stance,” Cavusoglu said.

“Our ties are not tied to one person or party. But, we are opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood being declared a terrorist organisation. It is a political movement that is trying to come to power through election,” he said.

A thaw in ties between the regional powerhouses could have repercussions around the Mediterranean. They have backed rival sides in the war in Libya and sealed conflicting maritime deals with other coastal states. But, Turkey has said a new period in Turkey-Egypt ties had begun and Cavusoglu on Thursday said Ankara did not see “Libya as an area of competition” with Egypt.

In the first concrete sign of a thaw, Ankara last month asked Egyptian opposition TV channels operating in Turkey to moderate their criticism of Egypt. Cavusoglu on Thursday said Turkey had made a similar request from other such foreign channels as well, and it was not specific to Egypt…..

UNRWA again teaching jihad terror and Jew-hatred as Biden’s handlers resume taxpayer funding with no conditions

Already the most anti-Israel administration since the founding of the modern state of Israel, and Biden’s handlers are just getting started in their betrayal of our only reliable ally in the Middle East, a nation that stands on the front lines of the global jihad.

“UNRWA Caught Teaching Terrorism, Jew-Hatred as Biden Admin Resumes Taxpayer Funding,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, April 16, 2021 (thanks to Henry):

The United Nations’ Palestinian refugee agency is promoting violence against Israel and using educational materials that call for the Jewish state’s destruction, according to video evidence and copies of lesson plans being taught to children before and during the coronavirus pandemic.

The U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which is in charge of providing education to scores of Palestinian children, has done little to root out anti-Semitism and the glorification of terrorism from its official lesson plans, although it has repeatedly pledged to do so.

The Biden administration moved almost immediately to restart U.S. funding for UNRWA despite underlying concerns about the agency’s radical educational materials—fears that have been raised by U.S. lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in recent years. After aid was resumed earlier this month, UNRWA promised the Biden administration it will root out violence and anti-Semitism, though officials could not explain precisely how the agency would do this after decades of using anti-Israel materials.

A State Department spokesman told the Washington Free Beacon that UNRWA uses the Palestinian Authority’s curriculum and works “to address the problematic content and provides instructions for its staff to educate students about why the content is problematic.” UNRWA, the official said, “must respect neutrality, exclude anti-Semitism, and oppose violence.”

“The United States is completely committed to working with UNRWA to ensure that any inappropriate material is identified and removed,” the spokesman said. ”Our resumption of assistance will allow us to serve as a partner to UNRWA to uphold the highest level of neutrality and commitment to tolerance in its educational materials.”

The State Department spokesman did not address UNRWA’s decades-long failure to better police its content despite the organization’s repeated promises to do so.

Undercover videos taken at several UNRWA facilities during the past year show children participating in militant displays and calling for Israel’s destruction. Teachers have also been documented over Zoom, which replaced in-classroom learning in the wake of the pandemic, using lesson plans that deem Israel illegitimate and brand Jews as “foreign settlers” who must be violently removed from the region.

The latest evidence, unearthed by the Center for Near East Policy Research, an Israeli watchdog group that has investigated UNRWA for years, was presented late last month to a bipartisan group of congressional staffers just before the Biden administration moved forward with a controversial plan to send $150 million in U.S. aid to UNRWA. Funding to the organization had been frozen since 2018 after the Trump administration determined UNRWA’s anti-Semitic and anti-Israel agenda was too toxic to support….

The latest UNRWA curriculums are “based on Jihad, martyrdom and the ‘right of return by force of arms,’” said David Bedein, the Center for Near East Policy Research’s director. The U.S. government, he said, must demand the aid agency “cease paramilitary training in all UNRWA schools” and “insist that UNRWA dismiss employees affiliated with Hamas”—calls that have been ignored for years as UNRWA continues to take U.S. and European funding….

The Biden administration’s decision to resume UNRWA funding without any strings attached drew a scathing and rare public rebuke from the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C., and Jewish groups typically aligned with the Democratic White House.

“Israel is strongly opposed to the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity happening in UNRWA’s facilities,” said Gilad Erdan, Israel’s ambassador to the United States. “In conversations with the U.S. State Department, I have expressed my disappointment and objection to the decision to renew UNRWA’s funding without first ensuring that certain reforms, including stopping the incitement and removing anti-Semitic content from its educational curriculum, are carried out.”…

EXCERPTS:

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

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

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

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

 

Sweden: Muslim migrant who received medal from king convicted of honor violence against his daughter

When he received his award, Rasoul Zarar Ibrahim was clearly considered a model of assimilation. But as this account notes, he still carried attitudes and assumptions from the Islamic culture of violence in his mental baggage. His daughter has paid the price. Will Swedish authorities try to protect women and girls in similar situations by working to eradicate such attitudes from Muslim migrants? Of course not. That would be “Islamophobic.”

The Qur’an teaches that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they “fear disobedience”: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

Muhammad’s child bride, Aisha, says in a hadith that Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: ‘Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?’” — Sahih Muslim 2127

An another hadith states: “Rifa`a divorced his wife whereupon `AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. `Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah’s Messenger came, Aisha said, ‘I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!’” — Sahih Bukhari 7.77.5825

“Moderate Arab convicted of honor violence – received a medal by the king,” translated from “Moderat arab dömd för hedersvåld – fick medalj av kungen,” Fri Kurir, April 13, 2021 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

In 2014, Rasoul Zarar Ibrahim received a medal from His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf. His “sunshine history” in Sweden since 1990 earned him the New Builder of the Year award. Now, however, Ibrahim has been convicted of honor killing against his own daughter. This after almost 30 years in the country where he has, among other things, represented the Moderates in the municipal council.

It was 16 years ago that Ibrahim had children with a Swedish woman from Sundsbruk who was eleven years younger. In 2008, however, he began to focus on entrepreneurship, and later separated from his Swedish girlfriend.

Although Ibrahim has been in Sweden for around 30 years, he has still not gotten used to Swedish culture. His daughter has therefore experienced a significant share of honor culture from his home country. Among other things, he has banned her from using social media. The daughter’s Facebook account is now reduced to a picture of a patched teddy bear holding a bouquet of roses.

At the end of 2020, Ibrahim was therefore sentenced by Ångermanland District Court for harassment.

According to the verdict, it can be deduced that he:

“Screamed ‘shut up, fucking idiot’ and similar expressions, took her cell phone and read her private messages, hit her with the car door so that her cap and glasses went off her, and caused a red mark on her nose.”

It also appears that he took his daughter’s mobile phone and started scrolling through her messages while driving the car. He has angrily “told her to stop being on social media and questioned which friends she has.”

Judge Susanne Söderström Wallin sentenced Ibrahim to a fine of SEK 1,500 for his honor crime.

Despite the fact that Ibrahim runs Subway restaurants with a turnover of 25 million a year, the district court apparently considers that SEK 1,500 would constitute a “penalty” and leaves the state to cover his legal costs of SEK 60,000.

Turkey blasts Geert Wilders ‘anti-Islam’ tweet to start Ramadan

To highlight the jihad during Ramadan, Geert Wilders released a tweet which drew a stinging attack from Turkey — illustrating yet again the validity of Geert Wilder’s warnings about Islam.

Listen to clip HERE.

For many, Ramadan is the month of jihad:

month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.” — Qaedat al-Jihad

Quiet prayer during Ramadan, needless to say, isn’t the issue, but alerting people about the heightened threat of jihad during Ramadan is a big issue. And beyond Ramadan, the global jihad against infidels is a critical issue, far too often avoided. That includes the stealth invasion of the West, which includes the “Islamophobia” subterfuge, which is intended to beat down critics of Islam.

Turkish officials reacted angrily, accusing Wilders of being “racist.” What race is Islam again? Wilders’ critics keep on proving him correct, from their reaction to his criticisms to the widespread reaction by Muslims to the Muhammad cartoon that was shown in the classroom by French teacher Samuel Paty (who was beheaded for it). Such a mentality (which is pervasive) isn’t compatible with the values of the Netherlands, and not only the Netherlands, but the entire Western world, in which freedom of thought and speech have been protected, at least up to now.

“Turkey condemns Dutch lawmaker’s anti-Islam tweet,” Al Jazeera, April 14, 2021:

Turkish officials reacted angrily to far-right Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders after he made disparaging remarks about Islam at the start of Ramadan.

On Monday, Wilders, chairman of the Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Netherlands, shared a short video clip on Twitter attacking Islam and the Muslim holy month.

Turkey’s ruling AK Party spokesman Omer Celik on Wednesday accused Wilders of having “a racist and fascist mind”.

“Enemies of Islam also hate migrants, poor people, needy people and foreigners,” he said on Twitter.

Ali Erbas, the head of the Presidency of Religious Affairs, condemned Wilders’ remarks as “unacceptable”.

“I invite the international community to a conscious struggle against the racist mentality that incites Islamophobia and targets social peace,” Erbas said.

Turkey’s Communications Director Fahrettin Altun also condemned Wilder’s remarks.

“Heartless @geertwilderspvv is racist, fascist and extremist. Islam condemns all. Stop racism,” Altun said on Twitter, tagging the Dutch lawmaker….

A slight pause on American academia’s out-of-control-freight-train rush to submit to Sharia. But the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is still flogging this case in court, hoping to use it to destroy the freedom of speech and criminalize criticism of Islam.

“Arizona community college to pay $155K settlement for directing professor to apologize for Islamic terrorism quiz question,” by Katlyn Patton, FIRE, April 13, 2021:

Maricopa County Community College District will pay professor Nicholas Damask $155,000 in exchange for his agreement not to sue district personnel, who last year violated his expressive rights in an attempt to quell criticism of his quiz questions on social media. The district also pledged to strengthen its commitment to academic freedom.

Damask, who teaches political science at Scottsdale Community College, came under fire on social media last May after a student complained that quiz questions in Damask’s world politics course were offensive to the student’s religious beliefs. Damask said the college suggested it would require him to meet with an Islamic religious leader to review the content of his course because a student complained that three of Damask’s quiz questions about Islamic terrorism were “in distaste of Islam.”

In response, the college directed Damask to issue an apology — pre-written for him by a communications staff member — and implied that he would be investigated. The college ultimately backed down after an urgent letter from FIRE.

Now, the district is finally paying for SCC’s unconstitutional knee-jerk reaction to online criticism….
