Can anyone provide me with valid legal reasoning – as opposed to bleeding heart globalist sympathetic transnationalism – why the U.S. government or actual American citizens can call an illegal alien a legal alien? If anyone to put together legalese justification, they would either be lying or be dependent on international laws not ratified by the U.S. Senate as required by the U.S. Constitution. In America, YOU CAN’T CREATE LAWS EX NIHILO! The U.S. is a Republic that is governed by the consent of the people as represented by elected legislators who deliberate laws. America is neither a mob democracy or a totalitarian nation ruled by a select oligarchy of elites.

 

That’s my two-cent introduction to some editorial thoughts by Justin Smith about illegal aliens forcing their way onto American soil will continue a process of Obama’s fundamental transformation of the USA into a nation lacking the foundations that have made America great via the individual ability to seek Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. This would be as opposed to the totalitarian State telling YOU what and how to live in an accepted way of life, restricted liberty and what happiness is.

 

Justin writes about the illegal movement of foreign aliens onto American soil. One aspect of the essay that caught my attention is the Leftist funding of a self-proclaimed humanitarian organization called Pueblo Sin Fronteras. Which translated is a globalist concept viz., People Without Borders.

 

This caught my attention because the American Left in league with George Soros desires the destruction of the guarantees in the Constitution and our reason to exist as a sovereign nation in the Declaration of Independence.

 

You probably won’t hear or read too much about Soros involvement, so I’m going to share a video from Glen Beck that over the Soros funding of Pueblo Sin Fronteras. (a video that I might not figure out how to embed on one of blogs in particular. Those folks will have to go to the Beck post, “Trump send troops to stop migrant ‘caravan’ headed for US — but here’s who’s funding the migrant”.)

Here is a list of demands from Leftist Pueblo Sin Fronteras on their Facebook page 3/23/18:

 

We demand of Mexico and the United States:

-That they respect our rights as refugees and our right to dignified work to be able to support our families
-That they open the borders to us because we are as much citizens as the people of the countries where we are and/or travel
-That deportations, which destroy families, come to an end
-No more abuses against us as migrants
-Dignity and justice
-That the US government not end TPS for those who need it
-That the US government stop massive funding for the Mexican government to detain Central American migrants and refugees and to deport them
-That these governments respect our rights under international law, including the right to free expression
-That the conventions on refugee rights not be empty rhetoric

 

Hmm… The only time a sovereign nation should have concerns about the Rights of refugees is when said refugees are sovereignly accepted on a nation’s soil. There is no global constitution the sovereign USA has accepted as the rule of law; hence foreign migrating refugees have zero Rights until the government gives it to them. Illegally crossing the border without granted asylum is a travesty to the American constitutional rule of law.

Illegal Is Illegal

The Invasion of America

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/6/2018 11:05 PM

 

The Leftists Democrats, the socialists and anarchists, never seem to tire in their attempts to destroy our border integrity, what little of it remains, and ensure that the gates of Mexico continue flooding America with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens annually; and, whether or not it was President Trump’s intention, his continued push to legalize 1.8 million Dreamers, in order to highlight Democrats’ refusal to cooperate on border security demands, has actually resulted in a two-hundred percent surge in illegal immigration, from last year. America is currently witnessing a caravan of some 1500 or more illegal aliens heading this way, after being organized and funded by the radical, transnational, leftist group of Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders).

 

Many duplicitous elements are also at play, as just this February, America witnessed a proposal set forth by Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer and Republican Senator Susan Collins, by and large a RINO, that would halt all immigration enforcement against any illegal aliens who arrive before June 2018, in an egregious violation of the four pillars of immigration initially laid out by the president. Not only does this proposal ignore the lessons of 9/11, it increases the risk of crime and terrorism, and it has already ensured a new wave of illegal immigration, effectively turning the United States into a sanctuary nation where the rule of law holds no value.

 

In March of last year, President Trump’s initial tough stance on immigration seemed to have effectively put the brakes on illegal immigration, but as his stance appeared to soften so too did we see an uptick in movement across the southern border. According to Homeland Security statistics, over 16,000 illegal aliens were apprehended last March, but this March the number jumped to over 50,000, up from 37,000 in February.

 

President Trump has even suggested the possibility of a DACA deal, although he also called it “dead” in one breath, while he castigated Democrats for not making a deal in the next breath. This ambiguity has now attracted thousands of more illegal aliens, who are currently heading our way from all across Central America and Mexico, a documented fact. Look for many thousands more of young teens and unaccompanied “children” to start arriving again at our ports of entry, within the next few weeks, and perhaps several hundreds of thousands more by years end, but the leftists, Democrats and liberal Republicans don’t care, since MS-13 and other Mexican and Guatemalan drug cartels aren’t swarming through their neighborhoods.

 

Only in the past two decades has this country allowed the advocates of diversity and multicultural cosmopolitan-one world-order-Marxism to take a firm grip on the reins of our immigration policies. Many Democrats were actually espousing common sense border security as early as the 1990s.

 

In 1993, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) stated: “The day when America could be the welfare system for Mexico is gone. We simply can’t afford it.”

 

In ‘Lessons from 1986 Immigration Reform’ (February 4th, 2013), Senator Chuck Grassley noted that Democrat Senator Howard Metzenbaum stated in 1985: ” … there is only one realistic way that you can stop illegal immigration into this country, and that is by making it illegal and being tough enough that illegal immigrants cannot work in this country.”

 

Even the New York Times, ever more the mouthpiece for the transnationalists and Marxists across the globe, had more sense on this topic, as noted by journalist Ann Coulter and exhibited in an editorial from September 29, 1997, stating: “Fighting illegal immigration is an important and difficult job. But Congress should do it in a way that will deter illegal entry at the border.”

 

Now, just as lawyers working for the Obama Administration coached illegal aliens, who could not speak English, to keep repeating the phrase “credible fear”, so too are the Soros funded organizers using this same tactic. And illegal aliens will soon appear and claim that they face a “credible fear” in their country of origin, and before the first liberal crocodile tear can fall, they’ll be given a court date and “refugee” status, as they disappear into the homeland regions, only to reappear with driver’s licenses at our voting booths, welfare offices, and DACA protests, holding signs that read “No Bigots, No Borders” and waving Mexican flags alongside upside down American flags.

 

Many Americans and globalists scream that any attempt to stop this current wave of illegal aliens from crossing into the U.S. is illegal. The international court may agree, but we are still a sovereign nation, with all the rights and authority that it suggests, and as such, we as a people have every right to stop these folks at the border and make them apply in Mexico, if they are really refugees at all. Upon verifying their refugee status, our government can decide at that point, just how many to admit, if any.

 

In the meantime, illegal is illegal, whether an elected official wants them here for cheap labor or padding the voting rolls by legitimizing these illegals. The simplest answers, right in front of our leaders faces, if not for their own agendas, would include closing our borders tight to anyone without a visa or a passport, activating E-Verify, moving immediately to deport all 30 million plus illegal aliens, and placing a temporary halt — a moratorium — on all future immigration, until this current generation of immigrants, the illegals who manage to stay and legal alike, have had a long enough period to fully integrate and assimilate.

 

What will President Trump do, if and when the Democrats call his hand? Will he really follow through with his proposed amnesty, turning at least five more states blue/ Democrat and setting up an avenue for amnesty for 30 million of the other illegal aliens in America? We must not give this amnesty under any set of circumstances, since a very small minority of these illegal aliens have actually been here since being infants or toddlers, and even if they were, they’ve had decades to correct their status.

 

This invasion of America by illegal aliens represents a strategic threat to the United States’ sovereignty and our American way of life, but our leaders seem content to wallow in their own fatal incompetence, as they have abandoned America to “whatever will be will be”, failing to stand for American lives, property and liberty. These illegal aliens and their leftist supporters are attempting to devastate our moral heart and freeze our national will to defend our nation, and in this sense, Trump is playing a dangerous game on immigration, which, if not handled properly, will certainly be the final nail in the coffin of Our Republic, sending America into a full blown barely functional authoritarian socialist tyranny.

John Bolton’s Appointment Rattles The Muslim Brotherhood Echo Chamber


Act for America emailed an excerpt of an article from The Federalist with the email subject line “The Muslim Brotherhood is Rattled”. The Federalist article by Ben Weingarten highlights that John Bolton’s appointment as National Security Advisor has rattled the transnational Islamic terrorist organization the Muslim Brotherhood (aka Ikhwan to many Arab speaking people) because Bolton has had the correct assessment that the terrorist network indeed should be on the State Department’s designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

 

Here is the Act for America email intro:

 

The left has made it their mission to smear anyone who opposes violent jihad, and cast them as “Islamophobic.” Recently, former ambassador John Bolton has been the target of such attacks because of his appointment as National Security Advisor (NSA) to the President. This is not only an attempt to discredit John Bolton, it is an attempt to protect the Muslim Brotherhood from finally being designated a terrorist organization.

 

As patriotic American’s we must stand up and not only support the appointment of Ambassador John Bolton, but also tell Congress it is time, once and for all, to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. Click here to tell your local Members of Congress enough is enough.

John Bolton’s Appointment Rattles The Muslim Brotherhood Echo Chamber

The Trump administration ought not to concede one inch to those who wish to sideline the personnel and stifle the policies that would make its counterjihadist agenda a reality.

 

By Ben Weingarten

APRIL 5, 2018

The Federalist

 

The attacks on former ambassador John Bolton following his appointment as National Security Advisor (NSA) have inadvertently served as some of his strongest endorsements.

 

First there were the hysterical cries of “neocon warmonger!” This would come as news to the NSA-designate, who was never a “liberal mugged by reality” but a self-identified “Goldwater conservative” from the start; explicitly rejects the belief in democracy-building as imperative to achieving America’s national interest under democratic peace theory; and suggests, exaggerating for effect, that following the removal of Saddam Hussein, as soon as practicable he would have told the Iraqis, “You’re on your own. Here’s a copy of the Federalist papers. Good luck.”

 

Although the “neocon warmonger” moniker is inapt, to say the least, maybe it is not such a bad thing if our enemies buy this line. In fact, this may be part of President Trump’s strategic rationale as a dealmaker for elevating a “peace-through-strength” realist portrayed as a cantankerous cowboy to the top of the National Security Council.

 

Then followed another narrative: Bolton is not only a real-life Dr. Strangelove, but worse. He is actually an adroit bureaucrat—“crazy and dangerous.” Then-senator Joe Biden, a man prone to malapropism, actually put it best when, in Bolton’s retelling, Biden said of him in 2005: “My problem with you, over the years, has been, you’re too competent. I mean, I would rather you be stupid and not very effective.”

 

But the truly revelatory attacks concern Bolton’s positions on Islamic supremacism, which reflect an understanding that jihadists pose a mortal threat that must be countered using every element of national power. You know these attacks are meaningful partly because they have been made under cover of a smear campaign.

 

Opposing Jihadis Isn’t the Same as Opposing Islam

 

Bolton has been cast as an “Islamophobe” for the thought crime of being a counterjihadist who supports other counterjihadists. The charge of “Islamophobe” is a baseless, intellectually dishonest, and lazy slur. Although it does not deserve to be dignified with a response, it goes without saying that there is nothing to indicate Bolton harbors an irrational fear of Islam, and everything to indicate he holds the very rational belief that we must defeat Islamic supremacists who wish to subject us to their tyrannical rule or destroy us.

 

“Islamophobe” is being lobbed at Bolton to try and discredit him and ultimately scuttle policies he supports intended to strike at the heart of Islamic supremacism. The “tell” is that the articles raising such accusations frequently cast counterjihadist policy positions themselves as de facto evidence of Islamophobic bigotry.

 

As the representative par excellence of the position that America should exit the Iran deal, it should come as no surprise that the Iran deal echo chamber in exile has sprung into action in savaging the ambassador with the most outlandish of insinuations. For the Islamophobia campaign, the lesser-recognized and perhaps more insidious Muslim Brotherhood echo chamber has been activated. Bolton is on record as supporting its designation as a terrorist organization, and Brotherhood apologists and true believers cannot abide this.

 

Either We Work With Terrorists or We Don’t

 

Recall that the national security and foreign policy establishment has long held that as a “political Islamist” group, the Muslim Brotherhood ought to be treated as a legitimate diplomatic partner. The theory is that we have to choose between violent and seemingly peaceful Islamic supremacists, ignoring the fact that their differences are tactical and strategic, not ideological. They are all still Islamic supremacists.

 

Most infamously, the Obama administration supported the ascension of Mohamed Morsi, leader of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, to president during the Arab spring, with predictably horrific consequences in particular for the nation’s Christians that persist even in the era of the much-maligned counterjihadist Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

 

Such disastrously naïve policy pushes ignore that the Muslim Brotherhood is the tip of the Sunni jihadist spear. It’s the ideological fountainhead from which violent jihadist groups from Hamas to al-Qaeda and ISIS spring. The “political” element of the Muslim Brotherhood is, if anything, more pernicious precisely because its adherents do not goose-step, guns in hand, in the public square.

 

No, the political arm engages in political and ideological warfare, tactfully seeking to impose its will through policy and subterfuge. “Social welfare” activities provide a convenient cover for the group’s ultimate aims. As the Brotherhood put it in its 1991 Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America:

 

The Ikhwan [Muslim Brothers] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

 

On account of the Brotherhood’s nature and activities, it has been designated as a terrorist organization from Egypt to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. A bill first introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz in 2015, calling for the U.S. secretary of state to submit a report to Congress on designating the Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization in America, lays out several other reasons the group merits this, including:

 

The [group’s] explicit calls for violent jihad, with the end goal of imposing Islamic law over all the world of the group’s founder and spiritual leader Hassan al-Banna, and the consistently violent Islamic supremacist content of the Brotherhood’s core membership texts

 

The terrorist efforts of numerous jihadist groups explicitly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the efforts of individual Muslim Brotherhood members designated as terrorists by the U.S. government themselves

 

The litany of terrorist financing cases involving the Muslim Brotherhood, including the…Holy Land Foundation case [the largest terror financing case in U.S. history] …

 

Do What We Like or Get Smeared as a Bigot

 

On the campaign trail and in its early days the Trump administration indicated an interest in designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. But within months it shelved these plans. What happened? The Muslim Brotherhood echo chamber deployed.

 

The Brotherhood undertook an extensive lobbying and information operation designed to dissuade the administration’s plans, reportedly backed by millions of dollars. The U.S. foreign policy establishment quickly proliferated articles and comments in prominent mainstream publications defending the Muslim Brotherhood against charges of being a jihadist group, adding that designated it as such would be impractical and impracticable. Notably, The New York Times went so far as to print an op-ed in the Brotherhood’s defense written by Clinton Foundation-linked Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Gehad el-Haddad.

 

In the midst of this flurry of articles, it leaked to the media that the CIA and State Department both produced memos against Muslim Brotherhood terrorist designation.

 

Concurrently, counterjihadists throughout the Trump administration were subjected to a barrage of attacks. Many would ultimately be sidelined, though some like Secretary of State-designate Mike Pompeo survived. He, like Bolton, is being attacked as an Islamophobic bigot as well.

 

Bolton recognized at the time that these events were not random. During a July 2017 interview he noted:

 

There’s been an amazing campaign. It’s always amazing to me how these stories and op-eds and lines of chatter appear simultaneously, all very well-coordinated…The argument being the Muslim Brotherhood is a complicated organization, not every part of it is devoted to the support of terrorism. Some of them do humanitarian work and so on; a declaration that the entire Brotherhood is a foreign terrorist organization would actually buttress the cause of the jihadis; so, therefore, don’t do anything.

 

Bolton’s riposte?

 

Let’s take the notion inherent in that argument as having some validity, that there are pieces of the Muslim Brotherhood that don’t qualify under the statutory definition we have of a foreign terrorist organization…My response to that is, ‘Okay, we need some careful drafting based on the evidence we have now that excludes some affiliates, some components of the Muslim Brotherhood from the designation.’ I’m prepared to live with that, of course, until we get more complete information.

 

This position is what really draws the ire of the Brotherhood echo chamber. CAIR, the unindicted co-conspirator in the previously mentioned largest terror financing case in U.S. history, published a press release condemning the appointment of “Islamophobe John Bolton” as NSA, citing corroborating articles from such non-biased sources as Think Progress, The Nation, Islamophobia.com, Vox, and Huffington Post.

 

As I have written previously, CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood and jihadi ties are numerous and longstanding, involving not only its founders and present leaders to Hamas, but its harboring of apologists for Islamic terrorism, and alleged impeding of counterterrorism efforts.

 

Bolton’s endorsement of designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization illustrates a keen understanding of the size, scope, and nature of the Islamic supremacist threat that the national security and foreign policy establishment lacks. It is a proxy for a worldview that if followed to its logical conclusion would turn our largely futile efforts to beat back jihadists over the last 17 years on their head. This view takes Islamic supremacists at their word in their desire to impose upon us the Sharia-based, totalitarian theopolitical ideology to which they adhere. Hence the pushback.

 

Applying this worldview would lead to decisions antithetical to the progressive Wilsonian internationalists and political Islamists on myriad issues in the Middle East, including:

 

  • Treatment of Israel versus the Arabs

 

  • The Iran deal

 

  • Iran policy more broadly, including appropriate measures against its proxies in Syria and Lebanon

 

  • Qatar’s bellicosity

 

  • Turkey’s behavior under Islamic supremacist Erdogan

 

The Trump administration ought not to concede one inch to those who self-evidently wish to sideline the personnel and stifle the policies that would make its counterjihadist agenda a reality. This specious and slanderous smear campaign reflects all the better on the appointment of Bolton as NSA.

Creeping Annexation? Nay, Complete Annexation!


John R. Houk

© March 28, 2018

 

Thanks to an Israpundit cross post, I discovered a Jerusalem Post article that informs readers that the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are upset that the Israel’s Knesset (a parliamentary body) is considering extending “Israeli law and administrative court jurisdiction to Area C of Judea and Samaria”.

 

This upsets fake Palestinians who believe the Biblical Land Promised to Jews is theirs even though these are primarily the Arab descendants of immigrants (See “Land Ownership in Palestine, 1880-1948” pdf study – especially pgs. 7-10), who moved to the Area for better jobs and livelihood due returning entrepreneurial Jews in business and farm techniques.

 

The JP reports the coined phrase of “Creeping Annexation” as if that was a pejorative act against the Fake Palestinians. In reality the phrase is sad, because it is an indication that Israel’s secular government is ignoring the Jewish Biblical heritage of God’s Promised Land to the promised lineage given to Abraham, Isaac (NOT Ishmael) and Jacob (renamed Israel by God Almighty and HERE).

 

There should be no “Creeping Annexation,” but rather there should be total and complete annexation of Judea and Samaria (named the West Bank by the invading Jew-Hating Arab Legion commanded by Brit John Glubb [aka Glubb Pasha] usurping Transjordan – later Jordan) under Israeli National Sovereignty.

 

Just as an aside: It is obvious I am not Jewish, but rather Christian. I consider myself a Christian Zionist. I realize there are some good historical reasons for Jews to mistrust the motives of Christians. After all Christians have a moral duty to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to offer Redemption into the Kingdom of God by faith:

 

14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16: 14-16 NKJVAs a Charis-maniac faith Believer, I should have included Mark 16: 17-20, but that upsets mainline Christians 😊)

 

Historically, the unfortunate truth Jews have faced from Christians is the Jewish refusal to accept Christ has led to the extreme non-Christian attitude of Jew-Hatred. Christians that failed to let Christ’s very Words sink began to develop false accusations that Jews were Christ-killers. Attributed to all Jews what a loaded tribunal of Sanhedrin Sadducees and Pharisees that tried Jesus outside their own tenets of belief out of fear the growing popularity of Jesus would harm their special station with the Romans. Incidentally, it was Roman governance in Judea that sentenced Jesus to death and executed the torture of the lash and the Crucifixion of death on the Cross. Should Christian despise and persecute all Italians today for the actions of a past Roman government?

 

To all you Antisemites out there, you might want dwell on the historical executioners of Jesus Christ the Son of God and Savior.

‘CREEPING ANNEXATION’ IN JUDEA AND SAMARIA – THE OTHER SIDE

It is a battle for Israeli democracy and the right of Jews to live in the heartland of the Jewish people; we cannot afford to lose it.

Jerusalem Post

A bill under consideration by Israel’s ruling coalition to extend Israeli law and administrative court jurisdiction to Area C of Judea and Samaria, and protect the civil and legal rights of Israeli citizens living there, has prompted accusations of “creeping annexation.” These accusations are based on the assumption that the entire area is part of the “Occupied Palestinian Territories” (OPT) and that therefore all Israeli “settlements” are “illegal.”

“Creeping annexation,” however, has another dimension which is not widely acknowledged or understood, even by the Israeli government: the massive movement of Palestinian Arabs from Areas A and B (under Palestinian Authority control) to Area C (under full Israeli control).

 

Critics of extending sovereignty to Area C, in which all of the “settlements” are located, argue that Israel cannot annex the area without giving full, equal rights to the Arab population living there. Advocates of extending Israeli law to Area C argue that there are nearly half a million Jews living there, far outnumbering the Arabs. This perception was reinforced by Bimkom, a pro-Palestinian NGO, in 2008, which published “The Prohibited Zone,” listing 47,360 Arabs in 149 villages in Area C, based on the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.

Bimkom disputed claims by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which surveyed Arabs living in 418 Palestinian villages located partly or entirely in Area C, that numbered 228,600. “We estimate that no more than 150,000 Palestinians currently live in Area C,” it claimed in its report. It acknowledged “numerous difficulties involved in collecting data about Palestinian villages,” and noted that therefore the data represented “an approximation.”

How many Palestinian Arabs, however, actually live in Area C? That is a crucial question, and unfortunately one that the government cannot answer.

 

In 2011, UNOCHA (occupied Palestinian territory) reported that about 150,000 Arabs were living in 270 “villages, camps, and other communities,” two-thirds of which are located primarily in Areas A&B, but which extend into Area C, and an estimated 50,000 Beduin and “herders” were living in Area C.

Two years later, UNOCHA reported that an estimated 297,000 people, who had been living in 532 PA villages in A and B, had moved into Area C, building homes and taking over land, creating de facto extensions of their villages. Although illegal, the Israeli military authority in Area C, the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) and the Israeli government have ignored this attempt to create “facts on the ground” by expanding the area which Palestinians claim as their future state. (UNOCHA reports can be accessed at its website: http://www.ochaopt.org.)

All of this has been known for a decade or more, according to the legal NGO Regavim. If true, however, why hasn’t the government done anything to stop it?

Meanwhile, COGAT, backed by the High Court and IDF judicial and administrative units, has been busy tearing down entire Jewish communities, such as Migron and Amona, destroying Jewish neighborhoods in long-established communities, such as Ofra, Bet El and Elazar, and destroying many hundreds of Jewish homes throughout the area because they were deemed “illegal,” and in some cases claimed to be “built on private Palestinian land” – although this was never proven, or even adjudicated by an Israeli court.

The failure of COGAT to protect Israel’s interests in Area C, its policy of declaring disputed land “Palestinian” and its policy of uprooting and destroying attempts by Jews to settle barren and empty areas not only leads to unnecessary confrontations, but directly affects the future of this critical area and the State of Israel.

COGAT has, whether deliberately or without understanding and forethought, undermined the right of Jews to live in the Jewish national home, Eretz Yisrael. It has pursued a dangerous and self-defeating agenda by refusing to protect Israeli civilians living in Judea and Samaria. It has betrayed the values of Zionism and the nation-state of the Jewish people, and the IDF’s own code of ethics. The government must take responsibility; it cannot be left to the whims, bias or ignorance of military bureaucrats.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked’s judicial reforms are the first step toward establishing a fair, balanced, clear and coherent policy. It is a battle for Israeli democracy and the right of Jews to live in the heartland of the Jewish people; we cannot afford to lose it.

McMaster Out – Bolton In and the Muslim Brotherhood


John R. Houk

© March 23, 2018

 

The swamp is draining slowly but to date, it is draining with the Dems and Deep State Obamanites/Clintonistas screaming all the way. With that in mind, President Trump’s business globalist-minded business-oriented Secretary of State is out. And Three-Star General H.R. McMaster is out seemingly more for abrasiveness with President and his own National Security staff than ideological differences.

 

I think a March 4 Wall Street Journal article provides the most cogent explanation of how Lt. Gen. McMaster lost favor in the Trump Administration:

 

 

… Gen. McMaster through the year positioned himself as one of Mr. Trump’s most hawkish allies in fractured debates on the president’s top national-security challenges, including North Korea.

 

But that, in turn, has put Gen. McMaster at odds with other members of the national-security team, especially Secretary of State Rex Tillerson [Gone] and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who have pushed for more measured approaches in policy debates, according to current and former Trump administration officials.

 

 

Hobbled in his ability to translate Mr. Trump’s sometimes-unorthodox ideas into concepts acceptable to more cautious members of the national-security team …

 

 

“In general, I think H.R. has been slightly more hawkish on most questions than most cabinet members and, in that regard, he’s aligned with the president’s instincts,” said Sen. Tom Cotton …

 

The issue that has brought the internal divisions to the forefront is North Korea, where Gen. McMaster has been a firm advocate for beefing up the military options, according to administration officials.

 

Gen. McMaster has raised the idea of taking a “preventive” strike against North Korea’s nuclear-missile program if diplomacy fails. And he has promoted the administration’s “maximum pressure” strategy against Pyongyang.

 

That has created alarm at the Pentagon and State Department, where officials worry that Gen. McMaster’s efforts could make it more likely that Mr. Trump would decide to strike North Korea.

 

 

Gen. McMaster also has alienated prospective allies in the military by directly calling combatant commanders around the world without first telling Mr. Mattis, U.S. officials said. …

 

 

Inside the White House, meanwhile, he has struggled to retain support from a volatile president who has lashed out over Gen. McMaster’s successful push to send more U.S. troops to Afghanistan and to preserve former President Barack Obama’s nuclear-containment deal with Iran.

 

He has been known to speak over other members of the national-security team in Situation Room meetings when he doesn’t like what he’s hearing and to frustrate the president with lengthy policy dissertations in the Oval Office.

 

“He doesn’t have any chemistry with the president,” said one former Trump administration official. “He lectures, and you can’t lecture the president.”

 

Last month, Mr. Trump READ ENTIRETY (Undermined and Beleaguered, H.R. McMaster Soldiers On; By Dion Nissenbaum and Gordon Lubold; WSJ; Updated 3/4/18 6:36 p.m. ET)

 

If the WSJ perspective is accurate, it seems to me McMaster didn’t disagree with the substance of President Trump, but rather the method. McMaster is being replaced by former UN Ambassador John Bolton as National Security Advisor. Mr. Bolton definitely follows the same substance of the President and Lt. Gen. McMaster. The trick will be if Mr. Bolton and President Trump can work together without arguing. I suspect Bolton will run into the same issues with the National Security Council staff as McMaster did. Time will of a Bolton/Military camaraderie.

 

Now that John Bolton will become the National Security Advisor, Counterjihad writer Ryan Mauro believes the stage is not complete to move to place the Muslim Brotherhood on the State Department’s Terrorist Watch List. Certain obstacles within the Trump Administration has been preventing the obvious move to occur. The exit of Tillerson being replaced by Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State and the fortuitous anti-terrorist Gina Haspel as the first female CIA Director (pending Senate confirmation) were some of the first moves making it possible the Muslim Brotherhood where it belongs – bloody global Caliphate-minded Islamic terrorists.

 

Haspel detractors despise that she was involved in Black Site waterboard interrogation. Those that call waterboarding torture do not understand what true torture is. Torture that maims, physically and mentally incapacitates or results in death is true torture. Waterboarding does none of those things. It does provide the illusion of drowning which regardless of what detractors tell you, worked effectively in gaining information against Islamic terrorists (See: WATERBOARDING: A TOOL OF POLITICAL GOTCHASmall Wars Journal; The Architect Of Bush’s ‘Enhanced Interrogation’ Program Wrote A Book About What Terrorists Told Him And It Is ELECTRIC Daily Caller 11/30/16; Perspectives on Enhanced Interrogation TechniquesCongressional Research Service 1/8/16, The CRS pdf shows facts without right and wrong conclusions).

 

Sign The Clarion Project’s petition to place the Muslim Brotherhood on the Terrorist Watch List now that the stage is set to make such a move effective.

American Day of Reckoning for Muslim Brotherhood?

The Muslim Brotherhood’s sigh of relief after being rescued by Secretary of State Tillerson and National Security Adviser McMaster has been replaced by a sweaty panic.

 

With Tillerson out and Pompeo in and McMaster’s days numbered, it is now probable that the Muslim Brotherhood will finally be designated by the State Department as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, paving the way for its infrastructure in America to begin being dismantled.

 

Groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood network like the Jamaat-e-Islami and Jamaat ul-Fuqra are likely to see a similar fate. President Trump’s desire to pressure Pakistan and more closely ally with India adds to the likelihood that these Pakistani-led groups will be blacklisted.

 

The incoming secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, was one of the earliest cosponsors of the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act when he was a member of Congress. Now, as secretary of state, he has the authority to designate Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs).

 

The newest version of the legislation is backed by 75 members of the House of Representatives and the Senate version introduced by Senator Ted Cruz has 4 cosponsors.

 

Now, most of the Trump Administration’s top officials are staunch foes of the Brotherhood, including:

 

  • Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was one of the few early cosponsors of the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act when he was a Senator.

 

  • Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who was forced to withdrawa senior appointment he desired who was a strong ally of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. However, he has articulately made the case for identifying the enemy as “political Islam” and described the negative impact of the Obama Administration’s friendly attitude towards the Brotherhood.

 

  • Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney, who was a cosponsor of the legislation when he was a congressman.

 

  • Senior adviser and chief speechwriter Stephen Miller

 

  • National Security Council’s Deputy Assistant to the President for Strategic Communications Michael Anton

 

  • Senior White House Adviser to the Department of Homeland Security Frank Wuco

 

  • Senior Department of Homeland Security Adviser Katharine Gorka (who is the wife of former Deputy Assistant to the President Dr. Sebastian Gorka)

 

It is almost universally reported that National Security Adviser McMaster is about to be replaced, despite Trump’s denials (just like his denials before Tillerson was fired).

 

The leading candidate for his job is former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, another known supporter of FTO designation for the Brotherhood.

 

Trump’s pick for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, is presumably on the same page because Pompeo recommended her. However, she is expected to have a fight ahead of her to get confirmed by the Senate.

 

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s position is not known. She previously struck a neutral tone when asked about designating the Brotherhood, stopping short of defending Tillerson and McMaster’s known positions at the time, saying, “That is not something that has been discussed within the administration.”

 

Outside of the White House, President Trump is back to consulting with his former Deputy Assistant Dr. Sebastian Gorka, a passionate voice for designating the Brotherhood as an FTO.

 

Pompeo’s appointment represents a stunning reversal of fortune for the Muslim Brotherhood, which previously succeeded in getting plans for such a designation shelved. One Brotherhood official said the Islamist group had spent $5 million to lobby officials and influence the media. Brotherhood apologists even succeeded in influencing CIA assessments that conveniently leaked to the media.

 

The Brotherhood also deployed its defenders to Washington, D.C. and Qatar went on a spending binge hiring lobbyists, particularly those with close ties to the Trump campaign and the ability to influence Jewish Americans.

 

Qatar even managed to seduce a former senior staffer to Senator Ted Cruz—the very man who introduced the Senate version of the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act—with a contract for $50,000 per month. Even President Trump reversed course on Qatar.

 

And now—the Muslim Brotherhood network is screaming.

 

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), identified by the Justice Department as an “entity” of the Muslim Brotherhood, is fighting tooth and nail to stop Pompeo from getting confirmed by the Senate. One of the favorite tactics of the Brotherhood, especially CAIR, is deception.

 

CAIR has predictably labeled Pompeo as an “Islamophobe,” even though he empowered a convert to Sunni Islam at the CIA to fight Al-Qaeda and Iran. Its factsheet uses out-of-context quotes to paint Pompeo as an extremist, while CAIR paints the Brotherhood as “moderate.”

 

The evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group is overwhelming, including terrorist activity in the U.S. Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist group, is the Brotherhood’s Palestinian wing. Al-Qaeda’s 9/11 plot had links to the Brotherhood’s network in America.

 

The terror-funding trial of the Holy Land Foundation proved, in detail, that the Brotherhood’s international leadership runs a Hamas support network on American soil.

 

The Yemeni Muslim Brotherhood has long been intertwined with Al-Qaeda, just like the Libyan and Syrian branches. The Jordanian branch is essentially a single unit with Hamas. The biggest resistance is in regards to the Egyptian wing, the birthplace of the Brotherhood.

 

Investigator Patrick Poole’s three-part interview with a former senior Egyptian counterterrorism official connects the dots between the Brotherhood and the terrorists it claims are “rogues” that it should not be held accountable for.

 

Failing a blanket designation of the Brotherhood, an alternative approach would be to designate several Brotherhood branches where the group’s connection to terrorism is clearer. This approach would meet less political resistance.

 

The changes within the Trump Administration indicate that the Muslim Brotherhood’s day of reckoning is finally near.

Pentagon Gearing Up for Space Warfare


 

Are you or have ever been a Sci-Fi fan? I was an enormous fan in my teens and early adulthood. Today I am more a Sci-Fi dabbler than an obsessed fan. Here is the reason I share this hobby predilection.

 

Any future global war will have a military venue that most people do not imagine in the present unless – you have been or are a Sci-Fi fan.

 

I just read a Bill Gertz article in which the phrase “Space Warfare” is a serious military subject in which current military rivals are central figures. Science Fiction is a heartbeat away from being Science Fact in the National Security interests for the United States of America. (Unless of course Snowflake Obamanites guide our foreign policy into oblivion.)

Pentagon Gearing Up for Space Warfare

New policy warns of counterattacks against space attacks

 

By Bill Gertz

March 8, 2018 5:00 am

Washington Free Beacon

 

Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood / Getty Images

 

The Pentagon is preparing for war should China, Russia, or other adversaries attack vital American satellites and other space systems, a senior Pentagon official told Congress on Wednesday.

 

John Rood, undersecretary of defense for policy, testified before a House subcommittee that the Trump administration’s new defense policy calls for conducting military and other operations in response to space attacks, mainly by China and Russia.

 

Rood said American space systems are essential for “our prosperity, security, and way of life.”

 

“And [Defense Department] space capabilities are critical for effective deterrence, defense, and force projection capabilities,” he told a hearing of the House Armed Services subcommittee on strategic forces.

 

“Due to the critical importance of these assets, the national security strategy states, ‘any harmful interference with or attack upon critical components of our space architecture that directly affects this vital U.S. interest will be met with a deliberate response at a time, place, manner, and domain of our choosing.'”

 

The statement on space defense was the first clear policy announcement by a senior U.S. official outlining “declaratory policy” normally reserved for strategic nuclear weapons use.

 

The new policy represents a break from the policies of the Obama administration that sought to promote transparency initiatives and arms control agreements as a way to limit space weapons or conflict in space.

 

The policy likely will be opposed by arms control advocates, and by both China and Russia, which have been promoting agreements limiting space weapons at the United Nations while secretly building arms for space conflict.

 

Rood said the Pentagon has requested $12.5 billion in funding for the fiscal year 2019 that begins Oct. 1 for building up what he termed a “more resilient defendable space architecture.”

 

The request is $1.1 billion more than funding for last year on military space.

 

Rood, and Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of the Omaha-based Strategic Command, testified on the command’s budget request of $24 billion.

 

Neither elaborated on what space warfare capabilities are being developed. The Pentagon also has not said how it would deter and defend satellites from attack.

 

Space defense so far has involved development of intelligence capabilities to identify and assess if an incident in space is an attack, or the result of a malfunction or disruption due to collision with space debris.

 

Military space “resilience” also calls for the Pentagon to rapidly replace or restore satellites after attacks or other disruptions.

 

The Pentagon’s Defense Science Board, in a report last year, warned that the vulnerability of U.S. satellites to electronic attack was “a crisis to be dealt with immediately.”

 

The Joint Staff intelligence directorate warned earlier this year that China and Russia will have fully developed space attack weapons in place by 2020 that will threaten all U.S. satellites in low earth orbit—100 miles to 1,200 miles in space.

 

More than 780 orbiting satellites operated by 43 nations are currently in low-earth orbit and are vulnerable to electronic or kinetic attacks.

 

Satellites form the backbone of the U.S. military’s ability to conduct combined arms warfare over long distances. They provide communications, navigation, intelligence and surveillance, weapons targeting, and attack warning.

 

Analysts say anti-satellites attacks knocking out 12 Global Positioning System satellites, located in medium-earth orbit around 12,550 miles high, would be severely degraded military operations.

 

U.S. space weapons are likely to match anti-satellite weaponry developed by both China and Russia. That would include several types of weapons and capabilities, ranging from advanced missile defense interceptors modified for space attacks on satellites, cyber warfare capabilities to disrupt or destroy anti-satellite and space weapons systems both in space and on the ground, and lasers and electronic jammers.

 

A defense source said one of the more stealthy anti-satellite capabilities being considered is a laser weapon capable of overheating an orbiting satellite that would disrupt or destroy electronic components.

 

Small satellites with robotic arms capable of maneuvering and grabbing or crushing satellites also could be developed. Such satellites have been tested by China.

 

The experimental space plane known as the X-37B, that has been secretly tested on long-duration flights in space, is also said to be a potential platform for delivering weapons and fighting in space.

 

Hyten, the Stratcom commander, said in his prepared statement that the Pentagon and National Reconnaissance Office are implementing a “space warfighting construct.”

 

“This construct supports the national space policy and focuses on the forces, operations, and systems needed to prevail in a conflict that extends into space,” he said.

 

“Space is a warfighting domain just like the air, ground, maritime, and cyberspace domains,” Hyten said.

 

Currently, a defense and intelligence center called the National Space Defense Center [Blog Editor: NSDC info], located at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, runs 24-hour operations for rapid detection, warning, and defense from space attacks.

 

War games involving space war also are held regularly with U.S. military forces and allies, including Asian and European allies.

 

Hyten also revealed that U.S. adversaries will deploy hypersonic strike vehicles—that can travel at more than 7,000 miles per hour—in the next few years.

 

China has conducted at least seven tests of hypersonic vehicles and Russia as well has conducted several hypersonic missile tests.

 

The hypersonic vehicles are designed to defeat missile defenses.

 

Hyten urged speeding up U.S. development of hypersonic strike weapons as well as what he termed conventional prompt strike weapons.

 

“New long-range, survivable, lethal, and time-sensitive strike capabilities, such as a hypersonic (conventional prompt strike) weapon, will allow the U.S. to achieve its military objectives in these environments,” Hyten said. “This new weapon class prevents adversaries from exploiting time and distance and provides additional response options below the nuclear threshold.”

 

Rood said U.S. missile defenses currently are configured for countering missile threats from North Korea and Iran and are not capable of stopping strategic strikes from China and Russia.

 

The undersecretary described China and Russia as the “central challenges” for the Pentagon in an increasingly complex military threat environment. “Both Russia and China are seeking to reshape the world order,” he said.

 

Rep. Mike Rogers (R., Ala.), the subcommittee chairman, has been pressing for creation of a separate space corps within the Air Force.

 

Defense legislation passed last year calls for a study on the issue and for recognizing space as a warfighting domain.

 

“These were the first steps down a long path in the right direction,” Rogers said. “Much remains to be done here to ensure we’re postured to both successfully deter a conflict in space, and if need be, prevail over any adversary if a conflict extends into space.”

 

Rogers said for space defense, the Air Force has discussed the idea of shifting from large satellites to many smaller satellites. “But what I’ve seen so far in the FY ’19 budget isn’t convincing me we’re heading in that direction fast enough,” he said.

 

As part of the Pentagon’s budget for nuclear modernization, two modified nuclear weapons are planned.

 

One is a smaller warhead on submarine-launched ballistic missiles, to counter Russia’s development of a new nuclear cruise missile in violation of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Force Treaty.

 

A second smaller nuclear weapon will be a new sea-launched nuclear cruise missile designed to counter China’s large arsenal of medium and intermediate-range nuclear missiles.

 

The Pentagon also is bolstering the ground-based anti-missile interceptor force now located in Alaska and California. Twenty additional interceptors will be added to the 44 interceptors currently in place.

 

The added missiles are designed to counter North Korean and Iranian long-range missile threats.

 

Rood said the Pentagon is considering a third anti-missile interceptor base on the East Coast but has not made a final decision.

 

The third base will be part of the Pentagon’s forthcoming Missile Defense Review that is nearing completion.

 

Rood said recent disclosures of new strategic nuclear capabilities by Russia were known to the Pentagon. The statements were “not surprising but disappointing,” he said.

 

As for China, Rood warned that China is “developing a very large strategic offensive nuclear force.”

 

“Both countries are pursuing hypersonic weapons and other capabilities and their behavior in the cyber realm concerns us,” he said. “All of those things apiece are concerning and why in the national defense strategy we highlighted those two countries as our primary and central focus for our national security efforts going forward.”

 

Asked if the U.S. doctrine of mutual assured destruction used to deter nuclear conflict with China and Russia will endure, Hyten said: “I don’t think we have to worry about that for at least a decade.”

 

U.S. strategic nuclear capabilities will remain strong enough to keep the doctrine in place, he added.

 

Hyten said Strategic Command is interested in developing missile defenses capable of knocking out missiles in the early stages of flight.

 

Direct energy and cyber attacks are two possible weapons.

Intro to LaSalle’s the Traitors Hillary & Barry

William LaSalle posted a huge comment to my share at the G+ Community Truth Warriors. Google flagged it as spam with these loving words from the social platform masters: “Removed as spam and only visible to you”.

 

I thought, “Well that is annoying.” I began reading LaSalle’s post.

 

The LaSalle comment was huge which might have contributed to Google flagging as spam.

 

As (or if) you read the comment, LaSalle comes off as an angry person ranting about the state of affairs left for America by one of the most Presidential Administrations in U.S. history. The thing is LaSalle backs his rant with admittedly Conservative sourced links, yet he includes some links that are from the Left MSM.

 

AND I made the post even longer by adding some excerpts to most of those standalone source links for better context.

 

I might add I concur with 95% of LaSalle’s rants but not all. LaSalle has several paragraph-lists of nefarious individuals and organizations in which some overlap, one example:

 

The M.O. of George Soros, Barack Obama, Muslims, the Roman Catholic Church, Organized Crime, the United Nations, Obama’s Administration, Liberals, Socialists and Communists, and Hilary Clinton is the same.

 

I point the “Roman Catholic Church” in bold text. As huge as the comment is, his inclusion of the Catholics as nefarious actors is not sourced. This leads me to believe a bit of personal animus against Catholics which is not an uncommon issue even among good moral upstanding Protestants (as opposed to a hate group).

 

I am a Protestant/Charismatic/Word-of-Faith Christian. Being in this crowd I have received share of animus from Mainstream Protestants and Catholic in Denominational Christianity.

 

The irony of LaSalle’s animus toward Catholics is he is commenting to a post that showed my displeasure of Jew-Hating Muslims promoting the proven forgery/hoax document The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as legit.

 

Those that have animus toward Catholics have some legit gripes with Catholic Dogma, such as: Papal Infallibility, encouraging prayers to angels and canonized saints and so on.

 

The reality is that devout Catholics have the same Conservative Family values as Biblical-minded Protestants. Today’s modern world has both Catholics and Protestants that have eschewed the Bible as God’s Word to Believers. These watered down diluted Catholics and protestants are worthy of criticism but not animus. Well, that’s my two-cents on the Catholics.
You might want to bookmark William LaSalle’s comment enabling to return to where you left off if you need a break from reading this book of frustration of virus of Leftists polluting the U.S. Government and the Constitution of the United States of America.

What you need to know about Clinton and the Uranium One deal

Sessions has raised the possibility of the DOJ probing the matter, as Trump has publicly called for.

By LOUIS NELSON

11/14/2017 03:48 PM EST

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week raised the possibility that a special counsel may be appointed to investigate potential wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation, specifically suggestions that a U.S. government panel approved the sale of a large uranium firm to Russian interests in exchange for donations to the foundation.

 

The so-called Uranium One deal has been a focus of conservative media and President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly asked on Twitter why the DOJ is not actively investigating the matter.

 

What is the Uranium One deal?

 

The deal in question involves the sale of a Canadian company, Uranium One, with mining interests in the U.S. to Rosatom, Russia’s nuclear energy agency. The sale occurred in stages, beginning in 2009 when Rosatom purchased a minority stake in Uranium One, and continued in 2010, when the Russian agency took ownership of a 51 percent share of the company. In 2013, a third transaction gave Rosatom full ownership of Uranium One.

 

With its purchase of Uranium One, Rosatom assumed control of roughly 20 percent of uranium production capacity in the U.S. The current licenses issued to Rosatom’s U.S. subsidiaries, issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, prohibit the company from exporting uranium outside the country, according to OilPrice.com.

 

 

What are the allegations of wrongdoing?

 

Controversy surrounding the deal largely pertains to 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state in 2010 when the State Department signed off on Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One. Several of Uranium One’s owners were also donors to the Clinton Foundation, giving $145 million to the charitable foundation, and critics have alleged that Clinton greenlighted the sale to appease donors to her family’s … READ MORE at SlantRight 2.0

 

KP Govt. Closed Six Churches Amid the U.S. placing Pakistan on Special Watch List

KP Govt. Closed Six Churches Amid the U.S. placing Pakistan on Special Watch List

 

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan (formerly NWFP)

 

By SHAMIM MASIH

Sent 1/19/2018 9:03 PM

 

ISLAMABAD: The Khyber Pakhtunkhawa [alternate spelling: Pakhtunkhwa] (KPK) province in Pakistan has sealed at least six Churches in district Abbottabad in the name of security after the United States placed Pakistan name in the Special Watch List. The officials claimed that only non-registered churches are closed. On the other hand, the KP govt. has announced monthly honorarium for 20, 000 Muslim clerics in the province.

 

According to the details the district administration at Abbottabad has officially ordered to close as many as six churches in the name of security and said the churches being established in the rental houses and non-registered are closed due to security risk. The District Police Officer (DPO) Syed Ashfaq said in his official statement that those churches have been sealed which had not been registered with the Auqaf Department.

 

According to 27th Convention of the United Nations, Pakistan is liable to take steps for the safety, protection of minorities and women rights and religious freedom in the country. And on January 04, 2018, the US placed Pakistan name in the list of those countries which are alleged violating minorities rights and religious freedom. Being on the Watch List means Pakistan is a step away from included in the “Countries of Particular Concern” list. The list includes “governments that have engaged in or tolerated systematic, ongoing and egregious violations of religious freedom.”

 

In the meantime, on January 8, 2018, KP govt. proved it that religious minorities are not free to perform their religious services at their homes and even cannot worship in the rental houses they live in. To a rough estimate more than 10000 Christians live in and around Hazara Division and 5000 in Abbottabad district. And many of them are bared to perform their ceremonial and routine religious services.

 

Meanwhile, the Christian community across the country have termed the move as unjustified. Father Arshad Nayer, the local priest from Roman Catholic denomination said, “it would give a bad message if the government continued to seal worship places of religious minorities over minor issues.” Instead of providing security to the said churches the administration is on to close them, and it is violation of religious freedom. The poor Christians do not have enough resources to construct independent new church buildings, he added.

 

Pastor Christopher Shakar, one victim [of a closed Church – perhaps], said that his father Akram Shakar has started the Emmanuel Pentecostal Church (EPC) in 1985, and now he has taken this responsibility for seven years. On the celebration of the Christmas, the district administration has interrupted during the sermon and asked to close the service. This is violation of religious freedom given in the constitution of country. Another church, Assemblies of God has been established some 50 years back and now Pastor in charge Saleem Ghori is running it in his own house is also closed under the said so called security risk.

 

Chairman Community Development Foundation (CDF) Basharat Khokher strongly condemned the move by the KP govt. and termed it prejudicial behavior toward religious minorities in Pakistan. Talking on religious freedom, he said that the step taken by KP govt. is discriminatory and biased; the KP government is paying billions of rupees to Muslim clerics in the province and shutting down Christian worship places. From this move, it clearly shows that there is no religious freedom in the country and government imposed restriction and tries to snub the rights of minorities.

 

When asked Shireen Mazari, a senior Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) leader and member parliament, she said PTI is very clear in giving rights to minorities and not in the favor of closing any worship places. PTI central secretariat has sought written reply from CM KP Parvez Khattak on the matter of closure of 6 churches in Abbottabad district. The CM has been asked to explain the causes and motives leading to closure of churches. In a statement chairman PTI Imran Khan said that all the minorities enjoy full freedom of religion under the constitution of Pakistan. He said the PTI believes in full freedom of minorities, adding that such steps by the provincial government create a negative impression in the international community.

A few words from Shamim perhaps from 2016:

 

 

Shamim Masih 

 

Greetings to you! Let me introduce myself first, though many of you are witness to my professional work. I am the only Christian journalist in this arena with diverse work experience with different media outlets like Independent News Pakistan (INP), as columnist with “Daily Times” for two years, two years with one of the leading Urdu daily, “Khabrain” & Channel 5, Daily Mail and now with Pakistan Today. I have been working as lead Reporter for “British Pakistani Christian Association” since 2010. As stringer I have worked with BBC world service. Being a Christian journalist, I have been writing on minority rights and working as a social reformer/peace maker as well.
