Believe Mahmoud Abbas – Believe a Liar

Mahmoud Abbas is the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Abbas gave a two-hour in Ramallah – located in Judea-Samaria (West Bank to Arabs and much of the globe believing Israel is illegally occupying Arab land) – in response to President Trump notifying the world the U.S. Embassy is moving from Tel Aviv to Israel’s Capital City Jerusalem.

 

As you can guess, Abbas was less than pleased. The speech was chock full of historical revisionism and blatant lies pertaining Israel’s homeland and the existence of the fake people known as Palestinians. Arab domination of the Jewish Homeland didn’t begin until the mid-600s AD (yup, I’m a Christian preferring Anno Domini over Common Era – C.E.).

 

In order to get a better concept of the Promised Land’s legacy, here are a few titles to examine ending with a 9:44 video:

Media Whitewashes Abbas’ Revisionism and Rejectionism

 

By PESACH BENSON 

JANUARY 16, 2018

Honest Reporting

 

Mahmoud Abbas’ two-hour address to the central committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization was the diplomatic equivalent of giving the finger to Israel, the US and peace prospects.

 

The speech was expected to articulate the Palestinian leadership’s response to Trump’s Jerusalem declaration and threatened cuts of aid for refugees.

 

But given how long the talk was, it must have been a challenge for reporters to focus on sorting out the “news” from the “rambling.” Indeed, the PA president rejected US mediation, blamed Israel for the “death” of the Oslo accords, and dropped tidbits such as someone offering the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Dis to become the capital of a Palestinian state. (Abbas didn’t say who made the offer.)

 

But there was a bigger picture that the mainstream media snoozed through. What most journalists would consider the boring, long-winded digressions were actually part of a bigger pattern of historical revisionism and rejection of any place for the Jews in the Mideast.

 

Sign HonestReporting’s petition to the Foreign Press Association in Israel demanding reporters and editors give a fuller picture of Palestinian rejectionism and refusal to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

 

The Speech

 

The Ramallah audience of PLO cadres, VIPs and the foreign press was regaled with Abbas’ theories of how Israel was founded — not by Jews — but by European “colonialists,” with plans going as far back as Oliver Cromwell in 1653. He accused Israel of sending drugs to Palestinian kids. He ridiculed US Ambassador Nikki Haley’s high heels.

 

Theodor Herzl

 

And Abbas fabricated a quote to claim that Theodor Herzl, the father of modern Zionism, sought to exterminate Palestinians.

 

“We must wipe out the Palestinians from Palestine so that Palestine will be a land without a people for a people without a land.”

 

Abbas also claimed among other things, that the Jews of Europe chose to remain and die at the hands of the Nazis, that Jews from Iraq and Yemen were brought to Israel against their will, and that Israel was formed as “a colonial project that has nothing to do with Judaism” to safeguard European interests.

 

The PA chief also hurled an epithet at President Donald Trump, saying in Arabic, Yekhreb Beitak, which means “May God destroy your home.” A Palestinian media professional explained to me that home refers not just to the physical house, but the household — its people and possessions. It’s a term used when two people are in a dispute, and although Arabs may use the term somewhat casually among themselves, it’s not a line one would use in a diplomatic setting. That would explain why the Associated Press called it a “jarring” language.

 

It’s not the first time Abbas twisted history for his own purposes. His doctoral thesis, written as a student in Moscow, argued that the killed “only” one million Jews, that the Zionist leaders collaborated with the Nazis, and that Jewish leaders inflated the Holocaust’s death toll to six million for their own advantage.

 

But the overall thrust of the speech was to erase Jewish ties to the land of Israel.

 

The Coverage

 

Too many media reports whitewashed Abbas’ coverage. Perhaps editors didn’t attach enough importance to the speech to give their correspondents a longer word count, which might account for the short, sanitized reports by ReutersBBC NewsCNN and Sky News.

 

Other news services touched on Abbas’ rant, but didn’t delve into the significance, such as AFPThe IndependentIrish Times and the Financial Times.

 

While the New York Times gave a sense of the PA chairman’s verbosity, the paper unfortunately didn’t fact-check Abbas, giving a pass to the false quote.

Mahmoud Abbas

 

“Testing his audience’s attention, Mr. Abbas also gave a lengthy history lecture reaching back to the 17th century, saying that Oliver Cromwell had first proposed shipping European Jews to the Holy Land, before tracing the beginning of Zionism to what he called the 19th-century journalist and activist Theodor Herzl’s efforts to “wipe out Palestinians from Palestine.”

 

“This is a colonial enterprise that has nothing to do with Jewishness,” Mr. Abbas said. “The Jews were used as a tool under the concept of the promised land — call it whatever you want. Everything has been made up.”

 

Indeed, Abbas has made everything up.

 

Can you imagine the headlines if an Israeli head of state denied the existence of the Palestinian people? Or fabricated quotes?

 

While I didn’t see any news coverage of the speech in The Guardian, an Ian Black commentary fretted over how the speech would play into the hands of right-wing Israelis. And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say the Irish Independent took Associated Press reports one and two and scrubbed them.

 

Credit the Daily Telegraph and Washington Post for acknowledging Abbas being Abbas and getting fresh quotes from analysts to provide some meaning.

 

Palestinians may see Abbas as defiantly throwing down the gauntlet while Israelis see Abbas on the verge of imploding.

 

If there’s going to be peace, we need the press to step up and enlighten us on what Mahmoud Abbas really stands for.

The Great Negotiator


Justin Smith and many Conservatives looking at President Trump’s willingness to negotiate on allowing illegal aliens to remain in America is viewed as a betrayal of one his campaign promises.

 

In my humble opinion some kind of give and take is necessary to end legislative gridlock. So, if illegals are proven working individuals that pay taxes, I don’t have a problem with amnesty. HOWEVER, if illegal aliens are living on taxpayer social programs, those illegal aliens need to receive the boot.

 

ALSO, if the Dems will not negotiate on effective border control – e.g. A WALL – Then blame the Dems and give all illegal aliens the boot. If illegal aliens cry racism, they should direct their anger toward recalcitrant Dems.

 

Thus, I am not totally on board with Justin, but in some ways, I am willing to be harsher with the blame falling squarely on the Dems.

The Great Negotiator

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 1/13/2018 4:28 PM

 

The negotiations on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), opened under a false sense of urgency by President Trump, the “stable genius” and “great negotiator”, and sixteen senators and seven House members, on Tuesday January 9, 2018 in an ineffectual move to protect 800,000 DACA recipients from potential deportation, once DACA ends on March 5th. These negotiations represent the lowest moment of the Trump presidency, nothing more and nothing less than another amnesty for illegal aliens and the Democrats’ first step towards a full amnesty for nearly forty million illegal aliens (government stats 11 to 12 million), a betrayal of America.

 

If the proposed Dream Act of 2017, the replacement bill of choice, introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is any indication of the legislative “solution”, America will be forced to give 3.3 million illegal aliens a conditional lawful permanent resident status. Roughly 1.8 million would certainly become naturalized citizens over the next decade, if not sooner, with voting rights.

 

What happened to President Trump’s 2016 campaign promise to deport all illegal aliens?

 

The switch came after his advisors told him that this DACA amnesty is popular with both Democrats and liberal Republicans. He probably also noted left-leaning polls, like in Politico, that show 54 percent of Americans want to give the “Dreamers” a path to citizenship.

 

I stated in October 2015, that “Trump’s values shift like the changing of one’s underwear from day to day, depending on his personal agenda and who had his ear at the moment”. Ann Coulter, a conservative journalist, seemed to concur, as she recently stated, “The president cares only about his press, has no grasp of details of policy, and simply agrees with the last person to speak.”

 

Under no illusions, one might wish to see our leaders vote to deport all illegal aliens, but the reality of the matter suggests some form of amnesty will be passed eventually, unless there is a loud and massive opposition immediately voiced. While House Republicans are forcefully pushing President Trump’s demands on the wall and heightened security, along with the addition of thousands of federal immigration enforcement officers and judges and E-Verify, through the Goodlatte-McCaul bill, the Senate is prepared to give amnesty in exchange for nothing.

 

The Goodlatte-McCaul bill also ends chain migration and the diversity visa lottery, which allowed the last two Islamic terrorists into the country and the attacks on New York City. It allows the Justice Department to withhold grants from sanctuary cities too.

 

It should also be noted, that after the Department of Homeland Security detained a DACA recipient with gang ties, early in 2017, it acknowledged revoking the DACA status of over 1500 recipients, due to criminal conviction or gang affiliation. How many other criminals have evaded the department’s scrutiny?

 

To his credit, President Trump stated: “It has to be a bill where we’re able to secure our border. Drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace. A lot of people coming in that we can’t have.”

 

Congress could accomplish the same things, without granting a blanket amnesty, if they really wanted to do so, couldn’t they? But the liberals of both parties aren’t working for America, are they?

 

Curiously, the Great Negotiator’s negotiating skills are less than impressive, given Republicans hold the House, the Senate and the presidency. It is the Democrats, not the president, who are driving a hard bargain.

 

The Dreamers have no right to be here in the first place, since they or their parents broke U.S. law, and they deserve that right even less, when they display 1794 maps of Mexico and wave the Mexican flag in our streets. They have no say over anything America chooses to grant them; and yet, these Dreamers beseech our Congress for America’s solicitude and benevolent care, while standing on the steps of our state houses and at the Capital in D.C. and demand that any DACA replacement legislation be a “clean” bill.

 

During the meeting, when Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked President Trump if he would “be agreeable” to a “clean” bill, it was obvious that he didn’t understand that meant leaving out his demands, like more border security and the wall, because he replied: “Yeah … I would like to do that. Go ahead. I think a lot of people would like to see that, but I think we have to do DACA first.”

 

Representative Kevin McCarthy, a liberal Republican, interceded, fortunately. He clarified for the President that he was, in fact, acquiescing to an amnesty bill absent any border security provisions.

 

Later, flanked by Senator Dick Durbin (D-ILL) and Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD), President Trump said: “We’ll do DACA and we can certainly start comprehensive immigration reform the following afternoon. Okay? We’ll take an hour off and then we’ll start.” Whether the president understood it or not, “comprehensive immigration reform” stands for amnesty.

 

To be clear, Congress has no moral or legal obligation or responsibility to grant amnesty to anyone who violated our immigration laws or knowingly put their children in an awful legal predicament. Let the March 5th deadline pass, let deportations proceed, and let the Dreamers sort it out, case by case, in immigration court, like they should have done over all these years.

 

Complicating negotiations further is a decision by a liberal activist judge in San Francisco on Tuesday evening, January 9th, that temporarily banned the Trump administration from ending DACA. Until Congress takes immigration policy matters out of the Courts’ jurisdiction, invoking that right under Article III of the Constitution, our borders will never be fully secured and illegals will continue to arrive at our borders en masse.

 

This DACA bill and any general amnesty for the total millions of other illegal aliens helps and benefits the illegal alien population and the Democratic Party only. Within a year of being granted residency or a path to citizenship, activist judges will grant full citizenship, and the bulk of these illegals will expand the Democratic voter base, setting aside all of Trump’s “wins” and border security gains; and Democratic Socialists will get to take permanent control of U.S. elections, laws and governments, for decades to come.

 

A recently leaked memo from the Center For American Progress reads, in part: “The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also  a critical component to the Democratic Party’s electoral success … “.

 

An attempt to destroy our borders forever more is still underway as “elite” liberals from both parties, backed by U.S. and global billionaires, seek to force American citizens towards a regional and then global governance. They present America a false solution, in these DACA proposals, on the pretext it serves America’s interests and does not harm our society at large, for their own self-interest, and these members of Congress, who are supposed to represent Americans, not illegal aliens, are eroding and undermining the sanctity of the entire legal system and, by extension, our Republic.

FACEBOOK BLOCKS FUNDING FOR MAJOR PRO-LIFE MOVIE


Facebook is using censorship to block the publicity of the Pro-Life movie exposing the nefarious behind the scenes lies and manipulation that was behind the Supreme Court making unborn baby-murder (abortion) on demand legal via Roe v. Wade in 1973. The flick is called ROE v. WADE the Movie.

I’m running with the WND story on Facebook censorship, but should note that Breitbart claims Facebook is backing off on the censorship if “crowdfunding” for the movie. However, the Breitbart story shows how Facebook took crowdfunding page down, then restored the page and then took it down again. Ergo, as of this post, who knows how many times Facebook will remove and restore.

FACEBOOK BLOCKS FUNDING FOR MAJOR PRO-LIFE MOVIE

Theatrical drama to tell ‘true story’ of Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood

 

By ART MOORE

January 12, 2018

WND

 

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger

 

A crowdfunding site for a theatrical drama in production that promises to tell the “true story” of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that established a “right” to abortion has been blocked by Facebook.

 

The movie’s producer, Nick Loeb, told WND the content of the pro-life movie, which exposes Planned Parenthood’s roots in the eugenics movement, clearly is the reason for the censorship.

 

Actor and producer Nick Loeb

“They have even blocked people sharing the ads I paid for,” Loeb said.

 

“This is stealing or fraud.”

 

Facebook has not responded to requests for an explanation.

Loeb told WND he and his colleagues are looking for a lawyer to take on the case.

 

Learn the tested and proven strategies to defeat the abortion cartel in “Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time.”

 

The executive producer of the movie is Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and the head of the group Civil Rights for the Unborn.

 

The film features Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight as a Supreme Court justice.

 

On the film’s Indiegogo crowdfunding page, the makers describe it as “the real untold story of how people lied; how the media lied; and how the courts were manipulated to pass a law that has since killed over 60 million Americans.”

 

“Many documentaries have been made, but no one has had the courage to make an actual feature film, a theatrical movie about the true story.”

 

The producers, calling it the “most important pro-life movie in history,” say Hollywood “only wants you to hear their version of the story,” noting there are three movies in development that take a pro-abortion stance.

 

“But you shouldn’t be surprised. Hollywood has always had an agenda to influence Americans to accept abortion, even if they have to re-write history to do it.”

The movie opens with Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, speaking about her “Negro project” initiative aimed at reducing the growth of African-American population in the United States.

 

It continues as abortionist Bernard Nathanson joins with famed feminist-activist Betty Friedan and Planned Parenthood to recruit for a legal case “a broke girl with a 10th grade education named Norma McCorvey,” who became known as “Jane Roe.”

 

The opposition to the activists seeking to legalize abortion is led by the film’s protagonist, Mildred Jefferson, the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School, who believed “that she became a doctor to protect life, not destroy it.”

 

Later, Nathanson, through the help of new sonogram technology, “realizes he is killing babies, confesses to all the lies and becomes a leading activist in the pro-life movement,” and McCorvey, realizing she had been manipulated, also joins the pro-life cause.

 

Internet freedom

 

WND reported last month censorship of Christian and conservative speech online by tech companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google and Apple is the target of an initiative called Internet Freedom Watch, launched by the National Religious Broadcasters.

 

The initiative has established a website, InternetFreedomWatch.org, to document cases, including Twitter’s removal of an ad by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., in October and Facebook’s removal of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s post supporting Chick-fil-A in 2012.

 

NRB, which has published a chart with more than 30 instances of Internet censorship, said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and a former Federal Communications Commission commissioner have endorsed the effort.

 

FCC chairman Ajit Pai has accused Twitter and other tech companies of being disingenuous by arguing for a free and open Internet while they “routinely block or discriminate against content they don’t like.”

 

NRB also wants Congress to hold hearings on the “severe problem of viewpoint censorship on the Internet.”

 

In a recent case noted by Internet Freedom Watch, PJ Media D.C. editor Bridget Johnson was suspended from Twitter with no warning or explanation.

 

WND reported in August that days after the launch of a book arguing fascism and Nazism are ideological spawns of the left, author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and his promotion team were locked out of his Facebook page by hackers.

The Arm of Monetary Censorship


John R. Houk

I was suspended from Google AdSense for not having enough original content. My blogs tend to be of an aggregate nature. So, aggregate commenting and/or sharing others’ content for a comment (especially on G+ communities and Facebook Groups), is not original enough? If the answer is no, I request a review. If the answer is yes, then the requirements are too stringent!

 

AdSense was not a real big revenue source, yet the small remuneration produced a good feeling. I found it interesting my AdSense account was suspended just a mere $4.00 from a payout.

 

At any rate, it would be a great sign if a couple of bucks (or Euros???) were kicked in every now and then to make up for the tiny lost feel-good pittance from AdSense.

 

You could toss in those couple of bucks at my PayPal button at SlantRight 2.0 or the NCCR blog readers can CLICK HERE or the Ubiquitous8Thoughts readers can go to SlantRight 2.0 or click HERE for a PayPal monetary appreciation for any of my thoughts you agree with.

 

The AdSense suspension gave me an idea about helping my lovely wife Diana with here coffee business. Diana has a healthy coffee for purchase website and the website shows you how to make your own money on a part time to full time basis. I even placed a healthy coffee banner at SlantRight 2.0 that will take you to Diana’s website to pique any curiosity about coffee that tastes great (I ad cream) with ingredients that can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight:

 

[Unfortunately the banner embed didn’t work on WordPress. Here is Diana’s website: http://dianahouk.valentus.com/corp/]

That’s the pitch. All thanks to an AdSense suspension for the lame of excuse of not enough original content. I suspect the actual reason for a suspension is more about disagreeing with the content I post than a concern of a lack of original content.

 

Essentially, this is a censorship effect through the purse.

Dear Zohreh


My Internet Jewish friend Ari Bussel writes about Iranian expatriates living in the USA demonstrating in support of the brave souls protesting the Mullah regime in Iran.

You might find it interesting a pro-Israel Jew is standing with Iranians in America protesting against the Islamic Republic of Iran’s repressive regime. After all it is Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and his predecessor Khomeini, call Israel little Satan and America Great Satan.

 

The Iranians living America are protesting the Mullahs as exiles that fled Iran after the fall of the monarchy of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. These protesting Iranian had become used to the Shah’s modernization and did not desire to live in an Iran thrust back into the medieval days of a Shia Islam in totalitarianism was the rule of law.

 

In full disclosure the Shah was no modern saint. The Shah had a secret police organization called SAVAK that was quite brutal toward the Shias that resisted Iranian modernization. The Mullocracy secret police (or whatever they are called) make SAVAK look like kindergarten bullies controlling the school yard.

 

According to historian Ervand Abrahamian, “Whereas less than 100 political prisoners had been executed between 1971 and 1979, more than 7,900 were executed between 1981 and 1985. . . . Prison life was drastically worse under the Islamic Republic than under the Pahlavis. One who survived both writes that four months under [the ayatollahs’ warden] took the toll of four years under SAVAK. In the prison literature of the Pahlavi era, the recurring words have been ‘boredom’ and ‘monotony.’ In that of the Islamic Republic, they are ‘fear,’ ‘death,’ ‘terror,’ ‘horror,’ and most frequent of all ‘nightmare.’” READ ENTIRETY (Iran: The Truth about the CIA and the Shah; By JOSH GELERNTER; National Review; 7/24/15 3:34 PM)

Dear Zohreh

Iran Demonstration – Los Angeles, Sunday, January 7, 2018

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent 1/7/2018 8:10 PM

 

Totally immersed 

 

A lot of work went into it.  For the ten days preceding the demonstration, all I heard from you was “flags,” “posters,” “coordination,” “permit,” “notices” and “press outreach.”  So many details, so much effort beyond the technical aspects.

 

The situation in Iran so occupied your mind and being, that there was no time left for anything else, and yet, on Shabbat you were at Shul (our synagogue) and after Shabbat you went to visit the sick.

 

Even then, you could not resist, walking from Century City to Beverly Hills with the Iranian flag; a solitary march, in preparation for today.

 

Futility?

 

I discounted the entire affair; for what good would it do?  For the young Iranians in Iran are well educated, with relatively good access to the West (a mutual acquaintance of ours raised and spent tens of millions of dollars of the American tax payer money to ensure exactly that).  They were all born into the regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran.  They know nothing different, would not remember with great admiration the late Shah, the same way I do, and if Iran is pushed or attacked, their loyalty will be with Iran; only with Iran.

 

Are they dreaming of an “Iranian Spring?”  To what end?  Replacing the Mullahs with a dictator of a different persuasion?  Allow me to remind us all – this happened once before, in 1978-1979, when Ayatollah Khomeini took over following President Carter’s pressure on the Shah of Iran.

 

Today’s kids, youth and young Iranians know nothing better or different, and their aspirations will be quashed most harshly, in a similar manner to the way the Green Revolution ended, about some nine years ago, or to the manner in which some one million Syrians have received the blow from the current regime – murder, rape, torture, imprisonment.

 

And yet, it is good to dream; even when it is evident the support of Hizbollah, Hamas and global terrorism will not lessen; on the contrary, it will only intensify.

Iranians Against Terrorist Islamic Regime

 

PST (Persian Standard Time)

 

Sunday, 1PM in front of the Federal Building in Los Angeles.  You intended to arrive half an hour early, to bring the flags you bought and the signs you printed.  You and I have often arrived early to events, at times being the first to arrive.  Not today.

 

In front of the Federal Building in Los Angeles

 

When I arrived at 12:30, there were already a few hundred demonstrators, with flags and signs (one in particular caught my eye: “Make Iran Great Again”).  Alas, “Persian Standard Time” happened in the reverse today.  For the next three hours, there will be a non-stop stream of people, adding up to some 2,500 strong.

 

The Absent Youth

 

Noticeably absent?  Children and youth.  There was one infant, two kids, another youth and later a handful of others.  Not even 1% of the attendees.

 

What was visible are the real Iranians; those who had to flee and can only dream of going back.  They came dressed immaculately, some with walkers, others with canes, still others on wheelchairs or being supported by a spouse.  They carried on with dignity and a sense of purpose.  Their children, themselves parents now, came in droves.  They remember Iran of the Shah, and they grew up on their parents’ upbringing, where Iran was the essence of life.  But their kids, those “30 year after,” did not bother to show up.

 

People Have Spoken: Iran– No Fascist Theocracy – YES Secular Democracy

 

(Iran) was vandalized and later the Jews targeted.  That ended 2017, and 2018 began with protests that spread throughout Iran, then were harshly quashed, as expected.

 

But those in their 30s, those already born here, stayed at home.  It is Sunday after all, and there are more important things to do on such a beautiful day.

 

For them, Iran is part of their cultural heritage, but definitely not the meaning of life.  They are similar to young American Jews who see themselves as Americans first, and if Israel ceases to exist, the world for them will not come to an end.

 

And herein lies the real danger.  Young Iranians in Iran are very focused and loyal, no matter how “difficult” the present may seem.  Their counterparts who were born and raised in the USA have no focus, no loyalty (other than to themselves) and no obligation (such as military or national service).  It is a generation completely self-centered, void of any obligations and absorbed in a strange world of social-networks “friends” and “likes,” “petitions” and “action,” and an overall attention span of seconds.

 

The Stranger in Your Midst

 

Having worked closely with the Iranian community over the past year, it was obvious I should be there.  Unlike other non-Iranians, I actually lived in Iran of the Shah, and to this day I speak most highly about the Shah’s concern and action for his people and his ancient kingdom, as he tried to bring it fast-forward into modernity.

 

Iran Flag under Shah

 

I was surprised to be greeted time and again: “Ari, what are you doing here?”

 

Well, it is a most familiar place for me, for on the side stretch the rows of dead, those who fought for all the freedoms we enjoy.

 

And here, exactly on the four corners of Wilshire Blvd and Veteran Ave, just a short distance away from my alma mater UCLA campus, I stood numerous times, defending Israel against external and internal enemies.

 

I am used to police, but not so many like today.  Veteran Ave. was shut down on both sides, and the police, most patiently, stayed away, allowing the expanding crowd to swell, grow, move outward.

 

Down with Islamic Republic of Iran

 

Overall, it was touchy, fulfilling and sad to see a people exiled from their land, gathered together in a futile plea for change.  Hope and Change, neither of which can materialize.  Not in Iran; not in N. Korea – both posing grave threats to world peace, to the world as we know it today.

 

Support of Passersby Cars

 

We stood next to the heart of Teheran-geles (combination of Teheran and Los Angeles), Westwood, so one would expect that some of the passing cars would be of Iranian Americans.  But the nonstop honking confused me.  Are so many supporting the demonstration?  Most Americans would not even know to recognize the flag of Iran, or to differentiate between the flag of the monarchy and that of the Islamic Republic.

 

These are the same Americans that would spit toward the Flag of Israel and crush or burn the American Flag, while stay oblivious to the flag of Daesh (Isis/Isil as President Obama liked to refer to the Islamic Caliphate).

 

So why are they honking?  And to what end?  I soon figured it out.  It is in this very intersection that regular demonstrations against Israel take place, under the banner “Free Palestine.”  The colors are similar (green, white, red for Iran, same with black for so-called Palestine).  People surely thought they were honking against the Jews, against Israel, wishing to “End the Occupation” and “Free, Free Palestine from the River to the Sea!”

 

The March of 2,500 Strong

 

The singing, chanting and calls over the loudspeakers were familiar: “Regime change in Iran.”  “Human rights for Iran.”  “Long Live ….”  “Freedom for Iran; no more Ayatollah!”  And a sea of flags and posters.  The swelling crowd, growing by the minute, getting ready for the march.

 

Regime Change for Iran

 

A permit was issued to march on Wilshire Blvd (closing east bound traffic lanes) to Westwood Blvd, turn onto Westwood (where the south bound lanes were closed) and continue south to Ohio.  The march, like the gathering beforehand, was very well organized, a mid-Sunday outing.  People hugged and kissed; took picture, waved flags, carried signs, sang and chanted.  In short, they enjoyed the freedoms afforded to every American, those that are not tolerated in Iran or in Arab countries throughout the Middle East.  And they were safe.

 

The group, a block and a half long and 15 – 20 deep, marched onward, carrying their dream – a memory 40 years old and beyond – with them.

 

I was inspired, full of respect and sorrow, sadness that you are celebrating a world that will not return, to which you are not allowed to return.

 

But you must not stop.  And do not be discouraged.

 

We have seen that Israel, constantly warning of the grave danger from Iran, has stopped its radio broadcasting in Farsi (something to do with lack of budget, more likely indicating lack of importance assigned to it); its President just weeks ago during an official, rare visit did not find the time to meet with the Iranian community in Los Angeles or its leadership.  Actions talk louder than words, and Israel apparently is focused on action of a different type (something similar to Stuxnet maybe).

 

We have seen American Jewry “help defeat the opposition to the Iran deal,” and AIPAC, the Israel lobby waste tens of millions of dollars failing to stop it.  The result was the same – a deal for which a second Nobel Prize was forthcoming to President Obama, for using diplomacy to achieve “Peace in our Lifetime!”

 

And here, today, some 2,500 Iranians (with one exception) who realize the danger, understand that Iranians are not Arabs, that most are very educated and determined, loyal and clear in their look, and whose time horizon is different than that of Western Civilization came out to demonstrate.  I stood amidst you and I was smiling, proud, grateful.

And as you chanted “Regime Change in Iran,” I felt safe enough to stand there amongst you – the only non-Persian – and sing “Yerushalaim, Yerushalaim….”

 

Always,

All Muslims Are Potential Terrorists


I have a politically incorrect attitude toward Islam and hence those that practice the theopolitical faith. I have mentioned in numerous blog posts that Islam’s revered writings deny Jesus is the Son of God, was Crucified to death on a Cross and arose bodily with a glorified human body sitting at the Right Hand of the Father. These denials make Islam an Antichrist religion. Ergo, for me, the totality of Islam is Antichrist evil.

 

1 John 2: 18, 22-23 (NKJV):

 

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the[a] Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.

 

22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

 

On the other hand. I realize under the Religious Freedom of the First Amendment, Muslims have a right to practice their Antichrist faith. EXCEPT or UNLESS a practicing Muslim insists on non-assimilation to the point of disregarding the U.S. Constitution. Actively disregarding the Constitution is an act of sedition against the rule of law in the American Republic and should be dealt with accordingly.

 

THAT MEANS preventing Muslims from coming to America that actively support the contradictions inherent in Sharia Law against U.S. should be refused immigration and refugee status. AND Muslims residing in the U.S. as citizens or immigrants but illegally working against the Constitution MUST be prosecuted accordingly.

 

Justin Smith addresses this Islam/Muslim incompatibility with the Constitutional rule of law in America.

All Muslims Are Potential Terrorists

Muslims are the only people committing global wholesale murder in the name of Islam. They are the only people who openly proclaim their desire to kill Jews and Westerners, and Muslims are the only people vowing to conquer the world: These facts are not irrelevant to America’s immigration policy.

 

Now, a large Muslim population is here in America. They are here in a target rich environment and surrounded by those they seek to force to convert and submit or murder for Allah, and their mission is closer to fulfillment, no longer separated by thousands of miles, with only a thin imaginary line of “security” — nothing — between them and their next chosen victims, when next they choose to strike. They have made themselves at home, here in America, the land they call “the Great Satan”.

 

One of the most recognized peaceful verses from the Quran states “God invites you into the abode of peace” –10:25. However, the following passages are some of those most accepted by the majority of Muslims world-wide, including here in America: “Fight against such as those… as believe neither in Allah nor ‘The Last Day’… and do not embrace the true faith, until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued.” – Sura 9:29…. “When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield strike off their heads… bind your captives firmly..” -Sura 47:4….”Do not befriend them (Christians, Jews, infidels) until they have fled their homes for the cause of Allah. If they desert you seize them and put them to death wherever you find them.” -Sura 4:89

 

If one looks at the Muslim community of 6-10 million (depending on whose statistics one believes) within America, we find a community reticent to help law enforcement and intelligence officers locate and capture terror suspects. Information is rarely received from a Muslim informing on another Muslim. Then, when one looks at the largest concentration of Muslims living in the U.S., 250,000, in Dearborn, MI [Blog Editor: The stats I found on Dearborn estimates the 2017 population total for Dearborn is about 98,153], one sees a community that, time and again, almost annually attempts to insert Sharia Law principles into their city codes, []

 

[Blog Editor: In Googling “almost annually attempts to insert Sharia Law principles into their city codes”, I discovered Googles devotion to Multiculturalism. The search results were dominated by Leftist MSM and Muslim Apologists indignantly proclaiming there is no Sharia in Dearborn, MI. There might be no civil codes instituting Sharia, but there are plenty of instances where Sharia influences show up. Here is one title demonstrating the prevention of the exercise of the 1st Amendment: “Dearborn, Michigan: First City In The US To Enforce Sharia Law”. An example of Dearborn Police preventing Christian Free Speech:

AND HERE:

And Muslims pelting Christians with heavy objects in Dearborn:

 

VIDEO: Muslims Stoning Christians in Dearborn, Michigan

 

Justin Smith paragraph continues …]

 

[…] even as Jessica Mokdad was murdered in an “honor killing” near the city limits. Even moderate Muslims tend to protect the most radical within their ranks from an ingrained at birth sense of loyalty to the “ummah” … the world-wide Muslim community.

 

How can imams reconcile the Islamic view of dar al-Islam, the territory of Islam, and dar al-Harb, the territory of war which includes all states and communities not under Muslim rule, in conjunction with the aforementioned Sura verses and Our U.S. Constitution? I do not believe they can, nor in all too many instances do they desire any peaceful cooperation and solutions.

 

From 1993 until 2001, the triple agent Ali Mohamed compromised U.S. intelligence as he worked for Al Qaeda. Mohamed was a former Egyptian captain turned CIA operative, who also became a U.S. Special Forces advisor and an FBI informant. He penetrated the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center at Ft. Bragg, while simultaneously training the cell of Islamic terrorists from the Farouq Mosque in Brooklyn that detonated the first bomb at the World Trade Center in 1993. In 1998 he trained bin-Laden’s bodyguard and took surveillance photos that bin-Laden used to bomb the U.S. Embassy in Kenya.

 

History does not detail any example — not one — of large numbers of Muslims ever assimilating into a non-Muslim culture. In fact, just the opposite occurs. As the Muslim population grows, it strives for preeminence and the domination of its host nation, just as witnessed in India, Cyprus, Lebanon, Nigeria, Serbia and many other nations.

 

In nations where huge Muslim majorities already exist, where are the Christians? Where are the Jews?

 

Resettle these “refugees” and “immigrants” in Muslim majority nations. Let them go to Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Emirates, the five wealthiest countries on the Arabian Peninsula, which have not accepted a single refugee to date.

 

Consider the violent nature at the heart of Islam. Consider that Islam is beyond reformation during this century. Consider that moderate Muslims are simply terrorists in a queue waiting for their imams’ call (fatwa) to “holy war” and martyrdom; that many mosques, such as the Islamic Center of Boston and Nashville and Orange County, California, all carry and advocate Islam’s message of hate and violence. Consider the decades long list of Muslim immigrants, Muslim converts and U.S. born Muslims – second and third generation – who have plotted and committed acts of terrorism against America and U.S. soldiers serving across the Middle East, from Ramzi Yousef, Anjem [Adnan] Shukrijuma and Adam Gadan [or Gadahn] to Mir Amal [or Aimal] Kansi [aka Mir Qazi, Aimal Khan Kasi], Anwar Awlaki and on to the Tsarnaev brothers and Syed Farook, and one can only determine that Muslim immigration should be halted immediately and permanently.

 

Understand the prevalence of the “eye for an eye” philosophy ingrained in Islamic culture and applied against any perceived wrong, at the slightest provocation, across the entire world, from France to Mali, despite the fact their Islamic doctrines have created their own misery. And then, rather than open the door to thousands of more potential and active terrorists, remember American parents and children murdered on 9/11 and at Boston — American children orphaned — and act forcefully and effectively to ensure something similar or worse will never happen on our watch again: Press America’s leaders to halt all Muslim immigration now.

Open Internet Preservation Act Seeks To Stop Internet Censorship & Promote Free Flow Of Information


Congress in both the House and the Senate are moving to protect the Internet from the hands of the Federal government; viz., the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) bureaucracy making law rather than Congress. All bureaucratic rules touted as Federal law should be verified by Congress before it has the force of law.

 

The legislation would not only take a politicized FCC out of the Internet, but would keep some of good parts of the Net Neutrality issues such as preventing ISP blocking or slowing data streaming of companies or ideologies out of favor of the an ISP owner.

Open Internet Preservation Act Seeks To Stop Internet Censorship & Promote Free Flow Of Information

 

By TIM BROWN 

JANUARY 4, 2018

Freedom Outpost

 

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has introduced HR4682, the Open Internet Preservation Act, in the House of Representatives, along with 21 co-sponsors.

 

The bill, which was referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce near the end of December, seeks to “amend the Communications Act of 1934 to ensure internet openness, to prohibit blocking of lawful content, applications, services, and non-harmful devices, to prohibit impairment or degradation of lawful internet traffic, to limit the authority of the Federal Communications Commission and to preempt State law with respect to internet openness obligations, to provide that broadband internet access service shall be considered to be an information service, and for other purposes.”

 

This legislation begins to address the growing threat by corporate giants, not just broadband services that are seeking to eliminate anything by the state-controlled message to the masses rather than allowing the internet to be a free flow of information.

 

“The Open Internet Preservation Act will ensure the internet is a free and open space,” said Rep. Blackburn, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Communications and Technology Subcommittee.

 

“This legislation is simple, it provides light-touch regulation so companies can invest and innovate, and makes sure our internet is up to 21st century standards,” she added.

 

Blackburn’s bill was introduced on December 19, 2017 and came just one week after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) repealed the 2015 Title II regulations under the Communications Act of 1934, the so-called net neutrality rules.

 

The repealed regulations classified broadband internet as a utility-like tool for communication. It will now be categorized as an information service, which is what it is.

 

However, the repeal removes bans on throttling, blocking and paid prioritization, as well as on how much data companies would have to report.

 

So, Rep. Blackburn’s bill would seek to restore some of those newly adopted regulations, but not all of them.

 

Among the things HR 4682 would restore are two provisions of the net neutrality.  It bans both blocking and throttling while not including a ban on paid prioritization.

 

Blackburn sought to block the implementation of Net Neutrality in several congresses she served in.

 

In the 112th, 113th and 114th Congress, Blackburn introduced the Internet Freedom Act, legislation that would block the FCC’s Net Neutrality rules by stating that they shall have no force or effect and prohibits the FCC from reissuing new Net Neutrality rules.

 

In 2016, the Senate introduced a companion to Blackburn’s bill, S. 2602. The bill was introduced by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT). Co-sponsors included Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rand Paul (R-KY), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Thom Tillis (R-NC), John Cornyn (R-TX), and Benjamin Sasse (R-NE).

 

“We must stop the FCC’s Net Neutrality rules, which are nothing more than a Trojan horse for government takeover of the Internet,” rep. Blackburn said.  “These overreaching rules will stifle innovation, restrict freedoms, and lead to billions of dollars in new fees and taxes for American consumers. We thank Senator Lee for introducing the Senate version and look forward to working with him as we move this forward.”

 

“The economic burden of these regulations will fall squarely on the backs of the consumers the FCC purports to help,” Senator Lee said.  “The threat of anticompetitive behavior should always be taken seriously. But it makes no sense for a five-person panel of presidential appointees to write a sweeping law aimed at solving a problem that might someday exist. There are more effective, more democratic, and less intrusive ways to address anticompetitive behavior, including existing antitrust and consumer-protection laws.”

 

Blackburn commended Ajit Pai for his getting net neutrality rules repealed and said that he “had done his job.”

 

Rep. Stivers, who co-sponsored the bill, said of the legislation, “Bottom line: Free and open internet should never be a partisan issue.  This bill would put into law crucial consumer protections that millions of Americans have asked for and that are emphasized in the principles of net neutrality.”

 

He added that the bill did just that “without imposing the burdensome and overly broad aspects that were originally designed for the rotary telephone on the cultural and economic engine that is our modern internet.”

 

The fight for a free and fair internet is possibly the biggest fight of the century.  If you wish to voice support for this legislation, please contact your representative or senator today!
