A Crown Jewel of Christendom Burns


Notre Dame Cathedral before 4/15/19 fire

On April 15 Notre Dame Cathedral was torched by accident or by arson. French officials lean to the former but the observation of a spate of French and European Church arsons lead to the valid speculation of arson. Many of the Church arsons have been linked to Islamic Supremacists who disdain the Christian faith. Could the Holy Week that includes Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday be a nefarious message to Christians?

 

Justin Smith sent his thoughts a couple of days ago trying to sift through fact, speculation and conspiracy over the Notre Dame Cathedral blaze.

Notre Dame Cathedral France billowing smoke & fire 4/15/19 — Reuters – Charles Platiau

Should that subduing talisman, the cross, be shattered the frenzied madness of the ancient warriors, that insane Berserk rage of which Nordic bards have spoken and sung so often, will once more burst into flame.” ~ Heinrich Heine 1834

 

Flames danced and leaped across the rooftop of Notre Dame Cathedral on April 15th 2019, and the world stood aghast and watched helplessly and somber from along the banks of the Seine River, singing hymns, weeping, embracing each other and praying. Onlookers gasped in horror, as they watched the fire ravage the 859 year old historic cathedral in catastrophic fashion, and they cried out as the 295 foot tall spire of this iconic symbol of Western Christendom plummeted and slid into the flames and centuries of history were burned to ash.

 

Nobody really knows what happened, although the major news sources were falling all over themselves to make certain not one single person was allowed to ask if there was an Islamic terrorism connection. Shepherd Smith and Neil Cavuto, Fox News hosts, both cut guests off for raising the question. They immediately called it “an accident” related to renovation work.

 

Well … as Notre Dame Cathedral burned, I couldn’t help but immediately think the Muslims had finally succeeded in bringing it down, especially since they have already tried so many times in the past, most recently in 2016. There was even an apparent Muslim seen on the scaffolding near where the fire started not long before it started. And that’s what makes Shepherd Smith’s refusal to even listen to one of his guest’s comments regarding the arson of hundreds of churches in France so maddening.

 

Phillipe Karsenty began, “For the past years, we’ve had churches desecrated each and every week all over France.”

 

Smith immediately reprimanded, “Sir, sir, sir, we’re not going to speculate of the cause of something that we don’t know! If You have observations or you know something, we would love to hear it.” When Karsenty tried to respond, Smith ended the entire interview.

 

Wasn’t Karsenty’s statement on the desecration of Christian churches in France an “observation” and a statement based on “[knowing] something”?

 

The scaffold was the first time in ages that any access was available to the roof area and its 5,000 oak timbers. I can’t say for sure it was a Muslim who committed arson, or even that it was arson, but to immediately dismiss arson and call it an accident before ANY investigation whatsoever has been fully conducted and completed is the height of sheer idiocy and weepy liberal foolery and cowardice.

 

To so casually dismiss any suggestion of Islamic terrorism, when April 15th is the date that Mohammed started compiling the Koran and coincides with many other Islamic historic events — not to mention the Boston Bombing — is a slap in the face of all Frenchmen and the entire Christian world, especially in light of the fact, that according to Raymond Ibrahim and Judith Friedman of the Gatestone Institute, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches, statues and crucifixes were registered in France in 2018, and 878 similar attacks were registered in 2017. Muslim terrorist attacks on Christians in France rose by 38 percent between 2015 and 2016, from 273 attacks to 376 attacks against churches and other places of worship.

 

On April 2nd, The Washington Post reported: “Among attacks on churches in February, a cross of human excrement was found in the southern city of Nimes, a statue of Mary was smashed in a Paris suburb and a statue of Jesus was decapitated …”.

 

On March 17th, Saint-Sulpice, the second largest church in France erupted in flames, and the police determined it was arson, no accident. The fire damaged doors and stained glass windows on Saint-Sulpice’s exterior. And St. Sulpice was just one of a dozen such desecrated churches over one seven day stretch in March, in egregious acts of anti-Christian vandalism and arson.

 

The cause of the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral may be found later, depending on how much effort the authorities actually exert; however, the significance of its eruption on the first day of Holy Week has not gone unnoticed. If this fire was purposefully set, the arsonist picked the perfect time. The results are devastating and will be long-lasting.

 

However, the leaders of France, especially President Macron, have become such cowards and so politically correct that they would prefer allowing the Islamic terrorists a few successes here and there, such as the scores of Muslim “no go zones” across France. The French government bends over at the waist to keep from pouring oil on the fire of Muslim rage, so the obvious truth regarding anti-Christian furor and its Islamic origin is permanently and intentionally obscured. The Muslim miscreants are not properly scrutinized, and yet those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols to these Muslims are ostracized, de-platformed and accused of racism, hatred and hate speech.

 

[Of interest:

 

 

 

 

The Church and Christianity are under attack from every part of the Western secular humanist, atheistic and Islamic world one wants to mention. Far too many seek to maliciously portray Christianity as bigoted, close-minded and hard-hearted, but it is far from any such thing. Christianity has facilitated and inspired the most beautiful works of art in history, and it encouraged freedom and science, after the Reformation. Christianity has been the epitome of self-sacrifice, charity and love of man and God across the ages.

 

During a period when most people of France were illiterate the beautiful wall carvings and stained glass of Notre Dame Cathedral, now so badly damaged, taught the lessons of the Bible and reinforced the doctrines that are the foundations of the Christian faith. The craftsmanship and artistry of the Cathedral instructed the people and instilled them with a spirit-filled and holy awe and wonder.

 

Hot righteous anger coursed through my entire body, as I saw videos of men of Arabic ethnicity, obviously Muslims, smiling and laughing as Notre Dame burned. The Muslims lit up social media with comments like “Allah est Grand” and “It’s time to say good-bye to your oratory polytheism” — referencing Christian belief in the Trinity. Not one person nor millions of contrarians will ever convince me that Muslims want to assimilate and coexist with the people of Western Civilization. They hate us and they arrive as invaders, and that’s why they laugh, rejoice and celebrate at each tragedy that befalls us or each act of terror that one of their brethren — dastardly anti-American, anti- West, anti-Christian and Jew Sons of Allah successfully carry out; tell me again about all the “good” Muslims, and I’ll tell you there aren’t any and call “b*llsh*t”.

 

If this doesn’t convince the majority of Americans to halt all Muslim immigration into America, especially after 9/11, the Boston Bombing and all the evil Islam brings with it, I don’t know what will. Perhaps America too will fall the way of Europe.

 

The French, and most of Europe too, have allowed Islam, antithetical to Western principles, to infiltrate their culture, infrastructure and government, as they also destroy their own liberty through communism too, another ideology opposed to Western principles. Having long abandoned distinct Christian virtues to the immoral and intellectually dishonest multiculturalism nonsense, they assumed the Muslims too would embrace tolerance of others and a multicultural society, however, in their arrogance, oh how they were wrong. As I write this, the Islamists around the globe seek the end of France, Christianity and the West.

 

Notre Dame Cathedral is a world treasure and a crown jewel of Christianity that has been much loved and revered by millions, since its completion in 1345 A.D. It has served in countless celebrations and processions proclaiming the glory of God to all of France. It survived the French Revolution and attempts to melt its tower’s bells. It’s the site of Napoleon’s coronation as emperor. It survived two world wars with little damage, and it is where General Charles de Gaulle attended mass amid rifle fire to give thanks for the liberation of Paris in 1944.

 

Built over a pagan temple, Notre Dame Cathedral was the work of generations and spanned two hundred years, during which its craftsmen and laborers beat considerable architectural and logistic challenges. Thousands of tons of stone was cut by small armies of stone cutters and was transported from outside of Paris, one cart at a time, while its tall ceilings and walls were supported by the architectural innovations of the rib vault and flying buttress. [See Also National Geographic]

 

Communism, socialism, nihilism and Islam have all targeted Notre Dame Cathedral over the centuries, and what they couldn’t achieve, a yet to be explained brief moment brought much of it tumbling down, whether it was Islamic arson or the Hand of God Himself.

 

French President Emmanuel Macron exclaimed: “Notre Dame is aflame … Great emotion for the whole nation. Our thoughts go out to all Catholics and to the French people. Like my fellow citizens, I am sad to see this part of us burn tonight.”

 

Night fell in Paris and the fire roared on, moving the crowds of the Faithful to come together in their heartbreak and disbelief, raising their voices in a chorus of “Ave Maria”, that rose above the flames. The poignant images were shared millions of times across social media networks by that Monday evening, with many calling the scene in Paris both “powerful” and “moving”.

 

In less than nine hours, we saw fifty-two acres of oak timbers consumed by the flames, as Priests rushed to save the many pieces of priceless artwork and statues and the Cathedral’s treasury, and we saw nearly 500 firefighters fight to save the Two Towers and the stained glass windows that depicted stories from the Bible and the doctrinal truth associated with them. The flames did their work all too well; and in the process, the inferno took the heart of France and much of the world.

 

Fortunately, the relic of the Crown of Thorns was saved, and this alone is a mercy to celebrate, even as we weep for what has been lost.

Censorship Imperils Liberty


Justin Smith has become a voice that many Conservatives listen to attentively, I know that I do. The American Left and Globalist Left for that matter, have become so rabid in their Liberty erasing utopian fantasies they are openly becoming violent against Conservatives. After you read this essay from Justin you might just get stirred up to defend your Liberty and nation. You will learn that ongoing Internet censorship is reaching far beyond your keyboard or mobile phone. The dark evil specter of global Communism is turning classic science fiction warnings of Big Brother into modern reality.

Censorship Imperils Liberty  

Truth’s Dark Death

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/7/2019 8:34 PM

 

America cannot allow lies to push truth to a dark death.

 

Disturbing postmodern relativistic, postcolonial and social justice theories, tripe and nonsense that looks for victims under every rock has been advocated over the past four decades; and we must unequivocally reject this nonsense, in favor of the honest to God truth, since we already see destabilizing hyperreality, fallacy, propaganda, political correctness and outright Gestapo tactics used to erase our American heritage, our traditions, and our culture, in nothing less than a despicable attack on our freedom and liberty. Too many are too willing to use every deception and even any flagitious means to usher in the Democratic Party vision of an authoritarian Marxist Socialist state for America and eradicate our republic.

 

Truth is in short supply everywhere one looks today, whether one speaks of Great Britain, China or even America. The communists and globalists, the proponents of a “New World Order” are on the rise, and they are targeting and controlling the people of the world through the internet, an array of high-handed arbitrary laws and even through tyrannical hate-speech “laws” that are not anything resembling legitimate law, since by their very nature they violate a person’s human and God-given Right to speak freely on anything that crosses his mind.

 

Great Britain and most of the European Union implement hate-speech laws against their own citizens, that are modeled after United Nations Resolution 16/18 and criminalize any criticism against Islam. This is the very resolution that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton conspired together to attempt to get passed in the United States Senate back on December 26th 2012 in New York City, despite its clear antithetical position to the First Amendment.

 

[Blog Editor: I ran out of time trying to locate info for the date 12/26/12 pertaining to the OIC, Crooked Hillary & the Senate trying to criminalize criticism of Islam. BUT there are plenty of references to Crooked Hillary working with OIC to get the USA on board for such criminalization. Here are three references among many:

 

 

 

 

In May of last year, the patriotic leaders of Britain First, Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, were arrested for distributing leaflets warning of the existential threat of Islam to all countries, during a rape trial at the Canterbury Crown Court, that culminated in the convictions of four Muslim men. Golding and Fransen were charged with religiously-aggravated harassment and convicted in the Folkestone Magistrates’ Court. Golding was sentenced to four and a half months in prison, and Fransen received an even more egregious sentence of nine months. And all of this came from voicing factual evidence and truths concerning Islam and their honest and true convictions on the matter.

 

Judge Justin Barron, an obvious illiberal communist activist judge similar to many here in the U.S. courts, had a hard bias against them. What should be free speech is frowned upon in the United Kingdom, as Barron declared that Golding and Fransen had a “joint intention to use the facts of the case for their own political ends“. And so? No matter was it to him that their statements were true.

 

In Communist China, the situation is even worse. The Great Firewall of China has for many long years blocked access to any information regarding the millions of victims of the mass-murdering dictatorship. Even the pro-censorship American tech giants, some similar to Apple who have largely agreed to Beijing’s censorship demands, have been mostly blocked from China. And as though it wished to prove its hostility to internet freedom and free speech, the UN placed an actual Chinese Communist agent, who claims censorship is in the eye of the beholder, as the head of the UN International Telecommunications Union; and, as surreal as it is, this is the agency slated for assuming the role of the world internet regulator and censor.

 

The world watches a program straight from Big Brother emerging from its infancy. By 2020, the system will become the Social Credit System (SCS), and it will be owned and operated entirely by the Chinese Communist State. The SCS will monitor purchases, hobbies, lifestyle and even who one socializes with on any regular basis. It will note how many children one has, how well one does one’s job and all the items necessary to be a model citizen, just as it will watch those who drink too much or speak ill of the government or its leaders. It will watch every citizen, and one’s credit score will be based on how well one aligns their thoughts and actions with the Chinese Communist Party line.

 

Four years ago, a Zhong Pei, a sixteen year old student, tried to board a train and was refused a ticket. She was also refused enrollment in her classes at her university, because she had committed the heinous crime of being her father’s daughter, and the daughter of a man who had died in an automobile accident that had killed two other people. This was enough for the Chinese government to blacklist her as “dishonest”.

 

Think about it. China’s system started with similar business models found in Alibaba and Tencent.

 

In the United States the databases, digital surveillance, national credit score system, systems of reward and punishment, government-knows-best attitude, electronic purchasing data and ubiquitous social media networks already exist. America has Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon that all monitor what you read, see, say, search and buy.  One’s android or iPhone already tracks everyone who uses such devices hundreds of times daily. And that information is already being used for complete censorship in America.

 

The threat of internet censorship at the national and global level is real, especially since Obama surrendered control over key internet infrastructure to globalist “stakeholders” unimpeded by the United States’ Constitutional First Amendment protecting Free Speech; and, with the United Nations actively campaigning for censorship worldwide, Internet Freedom has never been in more grave peril. If the Orwellian trend continues, it will only be a matter of a few years before the world-wide internet web, even in America, famous and admired around the world for Her absolutist free speech protections and rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, will be facing full-blown and outright censorship at the hands of a rogue alliance of governments, dictators, international institutions, and their Big Business cronies.

 

For decades now, America has suffered Her Marxist and multicultural FOOLS and all the debilitating thought processes that accompany them. They deny objective Truth, in their advocacy of relativism, that views ethics and morals as relative to the individual and his culture, so there is no such thing as Good and Evil — no such thing as Right and Wrong. Facts no longer exist for these Communist FOOLS, only feelings and interpretations and the crime of offending someone. Heaven forbid anyone is offended in today’s politically correct world.

 

Through cultural relativism our children in America are taught to hate our past use of slavery and its inherent racist code, but they are not allowed to learn about or criticize contemporary racism and slavery in Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia and even the dark recesses of some of America’s own neighborhoods in New York and Dearborn, Michigan and New Mexico and elsewhere. They are taught we must accept a multicultural society where diversity is thought to be a virtue, even as it erodes the very fabric of our society and births massive segments of anti-American populations as viewed in modern day Minneapolis and the hundreds of thousands of Somalian Muslims who ’til this very day give more allegiance to Islam and ISIS than they do America — even as it moves the nation towards a rebuilding of the land of Babble, with multiple codes of law, including Sharia Law and the harshest codes on earth, creating an immoral plane that forbids contrary behaviors to anything the government decrees legal, whether it is polygamy, homosexual unions, transgender fluidity and gender equality. At every turn, all the good and decent morals and virtues and principles that made America so EXCEPTIONAL will be ridiculed, defamed, trashed and ultimately abrogated and destroyed. [Blog Editor: A great academic critique of cultural relativism: Critiquing Cultural Relativism; By Jaret Kanarek; The Intellectual Standard, PDF Volume 2 | Issue 2 – Article 1; 2013]

 

Each day something seems to offend someone in America because it is deemed “racist” or “culturally insensitive”. And this is enough to move to have the offender removed from the public square, to be banished for an indeterminate period, sometimes forever.

 

These erroneous societal movements are only serving the further destruction of the nation, just as demanded by the agendas of the communists, socialists, Muslims, globalists and proponents of the New World Order. Allowing the fallacies of social justice theory that reveal a world of oppressors and victims only ensures America’s demise. Males are shown as oppressors and females are victims; whites are oppressors and people of color are victims; heterosexuals [h]ate oppressors and homosexuals and transgendered are victims; Christians are oppressors and Muslims are victims. Teaching our sons and daughters this BULLS**T simply ensures the nation descends into its own particular brand of HELL designed and facilitated by the enemies from within, the enemies of America and the enemies of Liberty.

 

Recently, Mark Twain’s ‘Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’ has been marked as too controversial to be read in America’s schools, due to the use of racial slurs by the book’s bad guys, which delivered properly would serve as a good lesson against racism. But educators want us to raise a nation of wimps, so we must avoid “(causing) students to feel upset” at all costs.

 

‘Mary Poppins’ and ‘The Lion King’ are both apparently too racist to place before any student. The New York Times accuses Mary Poppins of “shamelessly flirting” with blackface because she has soot on her face, while dancing in the 1964 movie adaption of the book. The Lion King is demeaned as “racist” because Africa is supposedly “depicted as one big animal reserve” and no human characters are shown.

 

Even the once esteemed University of Notre Dame has jumped on the Communist politically correct bandwagon, as it seeks to further the Democratic Party Communist agenda and attack our American Heritage for America’s sins of the past, just one more move to coddle overly-sensitive students. As the university covered its murals of Christopher Columbus, due to his alleged “atrocities against the native people” and his discovery of America that “sparked centuries of transatlantic colonization”, Notre Dame president John Jenkins said that the murals were “demeaning” to the “indigenous peoples.” Outraged students called this a decision to “coddle (Notre Dame’s) students by shielding them from a painting of an important figure in world history.”

 

According to the New Communist, the Western World and the principles of freedom and liberty it birthed, especially America’s society, are societies filled with evil and responsible for all the evil in the wider world. British imperialism is blamed for the specific foibles and problems associated with what are in fact indigenous cultural norms, such as the South Asian caste system and the African tribal system. So too, the corruption and backwardness found in former colonies of European powers and America are blamed on Western imperialism. No matter the great acts of sacrifice the American people have committed to save entire sections of the world, our nation remains the focus of anti-imperialism and a target of people and groups who at this very moment seek Her destruction.

 

The New Communists present America’s sins as something unique to the United States of America. They conveniently ignore contemporary empires, such as the Arab Islamic Empire that conquered all of the Middle East, North Africa, southern Europe, Persia, Central Asia and northern India, occupying them minimally for hundreds of years — occupying the Middle East and North Africa for 1400 years and still to this day. The New Communists also conveniently ignore the ethnic cleansing committed by the Han Chinese under the Communists, when they invaded Inner Mongolia to the north, Chinese Turkestan to the west and Tibet to the south.

 

Today, even more surreal and astounding, the United Nations is even demanding censorship in America. Following the violence in Charlottesville, the UN released a torrential flood of press releases, statements, warnings and condemnations that demanded action from the U.S. government against “hate speech”, even though “hate speech” is founded on a bogus Marxist narrative utilized by the apparatchiks and the Cheka of the mass-murdering hate regime enslaving the Soviet Union to ban speech they did not like. Aside from this, the U.S. Constitution specifically prohibits any government restrictions on speech, hateful or otherwise; however, if one needs any more evidence of the existential threat looming over the entire Free World and the stark danger at hand, take a quick look at Europe, where pastors are literally thrown in jail for defending their testimony as a Christian and spreading the Gospel and the “crime” of offending any nearby Muslim and where politicians are arrested for quoting Winston Churchill’s assessment of Islam, and the facts are sufficient to firmly and convincingly drive the point home.

 

[Three Examples:

 

 

 

 

All good and decent American Patriots — conservatives, Christians, libertarians and all others who love freedom and liberty — must realize that the Orwellian nightmare enforced by private hands is just as harmful to human freedom as if the dystopia was enforced by the hands of Soviet-style commissars. The results are the same. Freedom of expression is being sacrificed to the God of political correctness. In a world where digital lynch mobs can ruin people’s entire lives — harming their reputations, as was done to Alex Jones and his ‘InfoWars‘ network and later to Roger Stone, making it impossible to feed their families and potentially subjecting them to retaliatory violence, as seen in the attacks on Trump supporters wearing “MAGA” caps —  for merely expressing an honest opinion amounts to an extremely dark age for liberty.

 

Life sure isn’t going to get any easier for any of Us, not if the red, radical Democratic Party Communist rat bastards have their way about it, as they continue with their politically correct pushes, their internet controls, their postmodern relativism and their multiculturalism that attacks the truth of any issue on any given day, and all of this is done in the name of equality, freedom and social justice; in truth, it is a propagandists’ movement focused on ending freedom and liberty in Our Beloved America, the exact opposite of the things they purport to support.

 

Big Brother is now moving to become judge, jury and executioner, and this does not bode well for the average person in America, or anywhere else in the world, except for the small handful of global oligarchs and so-called “elites”. All Americans must stand together in order to defeat this ever burgeoning Orwellian surveillance Deep State, before all of our Liberty and our God-given Rights are lost and suppressed forever.

 

Fight for the Freedom of All. Fight for Our God-Given Rights. Fight for LIBERTY.

Minnesota’s Muslim AG may get opportunity to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws on ‘remnant of patriots’


Hmm… When you read this story about the potential Free Speech restriction that might soon be coming to the State of Minnesota, you should be thinking (unless thinking becomes a thought crime too) – WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE MINNESOTA VOTERS (94% non-Muslim demographically) THINKING electing a Muslim (Keith Ellison – a supporter of CAIR [Profiles: Canary Mission, IPT & Anti-CAIR] which supports Hamas Islamic terrorism) as an Attorney General that will support Sharia Free Speech restrictions?

In shockingly Orwellian fashion, Democrats in Minnesota want to create a statewide “Task Force on Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism” that would be stacked with people devoted to Islamic doctrines calling for more anti-Semitism.

Taken in light of other recent developments in Minnesota, all signs point to a coming crackdown on free speech, say conservatives in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

“It’s putting the wolves in the henhouse,” said Minneapolis resident Debra Anderson. “It’s very scary what they are trying to do. They want to stop, want to intimidate the remnant of patriots we have in Minnesota.”

Shrug Off Islamophobia & Xenophobia Accusations

 

 

John R. Houk

© March 30, 2019

 

Some fairly intuitive people have noticed what most would think an unusual cooperation between agendas related to Islam and Left-Wing ideology. I am certain more would publicly speak about this odd pattern of cooperation between Muslim Apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists except for the politically correct labeled fear: Islamophobia and Xenophobia.

 

Merriam-Webster on Islamophobia:

 

irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against Islam or people who practice Islam

 

English Oxford Dictionary on Islamophobia:

 

Dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.

 

On a personal level I do not an irrational fear or prejudice against Muslims or all things Islam. I do have a great cognitive understanding of how Islamic revered writings command Muslims to treat non-Muslim. Let’s look at a couple of examples that trust me are ONLY the tip of the iceberg against non-Muslims. Islamic scholar/expert Robert Spencer shows a Quranic surah used by apologists to prove how nice and peaceful Islam is contrasted with another surah that brings better context to the first:

 

In reality, Qur’an 25:68-70 warns Muslims not to kill the soul which Allah has forbidden to be killed”; it does not contain any blanket prohibition on killing someone. The Qur’an also tells Muslims to “kill them wherever you find them” (2:191); again, “kill them wherever you find them” (4:89); and “kill the polytheists wherever you find them” (9:5). So clearly killing is permitted, and indeed, commanded, under certain circumstances. (Does Allah really command Muslims to kill non-Muslims? By Robert Spencer; Jihad Watch; 4/4/18 5:34 PM)

 

For a deeper perspective on Islam and non-Muslims:

 

 

 

 

Then there are Leftists with a Multiculturalist agenda. These ideologues are Open Borders, One World Government and Marxist Cultural Utopian friendly folks. If you criticize Muslim migrants, Muslim immigrants or any immigrants that refuse assimilation into the nation and culture moving to then you practice Xenophobia.

 

English Oxford Dictionary on Xenophobia:

 

Dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries.

 

Cambridge Dictionary on Xenophobia:

 

extreme dislike or fear of foreigners, their customs, their religions, etc.

 

For the record I have no problem with foreigners coming to America for a new or better life. I do have a problem with foreigners moving to America desiring to impose cultural norms different from American culture and heritage. If a foreigner does not like America, for God’s sake don’t move here.

 

These thoughts were inspired by an email alert sent from Rachel Ehrenfeld via ACDemocracy. Ehrenfeld writes about European Union (EU) leadership and an apparent Open Borders Multiculturalism eradicating the separate natural cultures of Europe which is actually complying with an ongoing Islamic Dawah transforming Europe to an Islamic culture more and more every day.

 

This is meaning to America TODAY because of the Dem Party’s Open Borders Multiculturalist agenda is hauntingly similar to EU Multiculturalism.

‘New Europe’ and the Islamist Agenda

 

By Rachel Ehrenfeld

March 29, 2019

American Center for Democracy & Economic Warfare (ACDemocracy)

 

migrants-immigratia

 

The European Union’s Progressive-Left post-nationalist leadership is set on challenging the sovereignty of nation-states, by eliminating borders and letting in millions of Muslims.   This policy has already contributed to moving the “old” European continent towards a new Europe, occupied by new people with a new culture. Apparently, opening the continent to millions of mostly unqualified migrants who refuse to assimilate, and who drain the coffers of their host countries, seems like the preferred solution to the negative birthrates among the Europeans.

 

On August 30, 2010, as he was folding his tent near the Vatican, on his last visit to Rome, Italy, then Libya’s leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, forewarned: “Europe runs the risk of turning black from illegal immigration; it could turn into Africa. There is a dangerous level of immigration from Africa into Europe, and we don’t know what will happen. What will be the reaction of the white Christian Europeans to this mass of hungry, uneducated Africans? We don’t know if Europe will remain an advanced and cohesive continent or if it will be destroyed by this barbarian invasion.”

 

Kaddafi urged the Europeans, “imagine that this could happen, but before it does, we need to work together.” He proceeded to offer the Europeans a deal, asking for a modest fee of 5bn euros, to stop the mass migration to Europe, which as he predicted, are costing billions of euros annually.

 

Despite the already increasing number of African migrants and Middle Eastern refugees of the evolving Arab Spring, the Europeans accused Kaddafi of blackmail and dismissed his offer. A few years later, after more than 1million refugees flooded the continent, the EU caved in to Turkey’s Islamist President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan demands of more than 6bn euros, to temporarily prevent refugees from entering Europe.

 

In addition to Kaddafi’s “business proposal,” the Europeans overlooked Kaddafi’s public Dawah sermon, in which he called on Europe to convert to Islam. His handing out Korans to five hundred young Italian women, impressing upon them that “Islam is the “ultimate religion. If you want to believe in a single faith, then it must be that of Mohammed,” was dismissed as one of his publicity ploys, thus overlooking the significance of his performing the Islamic religious duty, the Dawah (calling on infidels to join Islam). Incredibly, European and other Western nations continue to ignore Islamic leaders calls on Muslims residing in the West to spread Islam.

 

Six months later, when Libyan Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated rebels joined the “Arab Spring,” NATO began its military intervention to depose Kaddafi. The chaos that ensued after his death in October 2011, created a vacuum that was swiftly filled by local and foreign jihadist groups, including al Qaeda and ISIS.

 

Libya’s coastline’s strategic importance as a step-stone to Europe was not wasted on ISIS. By 2015, ISIS has been shipping more than a million Muslim and African “refugees”  and to the Italian island of Lampedusa, just 162 nm from the Libyan coastline. It is unknown how many members/supporters of ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other jihadist groups arrived in Europe via Libya as “refugees.”

 

As the refugee crisis worsened, Turkey’s Islamist President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who aspires to take over and Islamize Europe, demanded a hefty ransom and other political concessions in exchange of helping control the flood of refugees. The Europeans conceded to most of his demands.

 

European nations and central institution’ decades-long denial of the threats posed by radical Islam, have been focusing instead on alleged ‘root causes’ of Islamist terrorism, and on attempts to accommodate and appease them, by codifying the Islamic narrative, imposing political correctness with new draconian hate- speech laws, has played into the hands of the radicals who are set on expanding the Islamization of Europe.

 

Widely publicized declarations by Islamic religious and political leaders and activists that Islam is not merely a religion but also a universal political and social system are not new or secret. They are advertised in all languages on the Internet and on the social media pages of global radical Muslim organizations. The Facebook pages of Hizb ut Tahrir, for example, says: (quote) “Islam is the only system that united people of all races and religions in history and will unite them once more when it returns.”

 

You don’t have to take my word for it. Instead, take a look at our dedicated website news.acdemocracy.org, which provides original documentation of statement made by radical Islamists leaders, official representatives of major Muslim organizations, as well as political leaders in the West who support them.

 

Let’s begin with the Doha based Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the very influential spiritual leader for the worldwide Muslim Brotherhood – for many years he was on Interpol’s red alert, but last November was removed without an official explanation – who has issued many Fatwas on the duty of all Muslims to spread Islam. His fatwas have been published on his website; on Islam-online – the brotherhood’s official website, and for many years, he issued them on his widely watched TV program on al Jazeera.

 

According to Qaradawi, “Occupying Europe and defeating Christianity will become possible with the spread of Islam inside Europe until it becomes strong enough to take over the whole continent.”

 

After al -Qaeda attacked the U.S., Qaradawi explained that Islamizing Europe would be “the beginning of the righteous Caliphate’s return.”

 

Al-Qaradawi declared: “Islam will return once more to Europe as a conqueror and as a victorious power after it was expelled twice from the continent…I assume that next time the conquest [of Europe] will not be achieved by the sword [i.e., war] but by preaching (dawah) and spreading the ideology [of Islam]….The conquest of Europe …and the expansion of Islam will reach all the areas where the sun shines and the moon appears [i.e., the entire world.” Few, if any Europeans, took him seriously.

 

Instead, advancing the Islamist agenda seems to suit the Progressive-Left post-nationalist leadership everywhere. Like the Muslims, though for different reasons, they are set on challenging the sovereignty of nation states. Both aim at changing the European continent, by creating a new Europe, occupied by new people and a new culture. For the Europeans, opening the continent to millions of Muslims, who drain the coffers of their host country, seems as the solution to the negative birthrates among the Europeans. Oddly, they are convinced that the newcomers, as the old Europeans, would submit to Brussel’s dictates.

 

Why should they? The Europeans were never interested in assimilating Muslims. Instead, they talked about integration, which they miserably failed. They also failed to acknowledge the rise of radical Islam, especially in large concentrations of Muslim neighborhoods. And little attention, if any, has been given to the constant preaching by local Imams and Islamic scholars, many who visit Europe to inoculate the newly arrived, as well as the second and third generation of Muslim migrants against assimilation.

 

These preachers also warn against temptations readily available in Western secular societies, urging instead, to “spread the word of Allah.”

 

In September 2015, at the height of the refugee’s crisis in Europe, when more than 1 million refuges flooded Europe following the German Chancellor’s controversial decision of open border migration.   Fatima Benhatta, a Canadian representative of the U.K based international organization Islamic Relief, which has ties to Hamasissued the following statement on the Syrian mass immigration to Europe.

 

“…My prayer, O Allah, open their [European countries that welcomed Syrian refugees] breasts to [accept] Islam and provide them with the testimony [pledge of allegiance to Allah and Mohammad].  I swear by Allah that they deserve the prayer. What is the achievement of Syrians coming [to Europe]? Islam will be spread even more among them [Europeans], their [Muslims] ratio [in society] will increase and the Syrians will be victorious [conquering Europe], Allah Willing…” (archive)

 

Incidentally, Fatima is friendly with Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, who on March 17, 2019, after the awful Christchurch terrorist attack on Muslims,  chose to visit a Muslim Community (SNMC) mosque in Ottawa to express his solidarity with the Muslim community. That mosque, however, is known for hosting a Saudi imam who prayed for killing Jews and Christians.

 

Also in late 2015, the popular Islamist activist Saeed Rageah, who was born in Somalia, raised in Saudi Arabia, and according to his online bio, “found his way to North America,” in the late 1980s’, visited  Sweden to address Muslim refugees and immigrants. In his speech, which was posted on YouTube-  Rageah enlightened his audience, saying: “The reason that Allah brought you here is so you can carry the message of Islam to the people. Why? Because each one of us has the responsibility to call people to Allah.”

 

Rageah has also delivered sermons calling on all Muslims living in the West, to Hire only Muslims: “Use only truck-and cab drivers that are Muslim! Use only doctors who are Muslim. — “If you want to do anything just ask if that individual is a Muslim or not. If he is not, then look for a Muslim, because I’m sure you’ll find a Muslim. I’m sure you’ll find a Muslim in that field…”

 

Shaikh Abdool Hamid, who like many other Islamic scholars from all over the world have been educated at Medina University, the Saudi version of the Patrice Lumumba Peoples’ Friendship University, in the former USSR.

 

Hamid is a popular lecturer who serves as Imam in several mosques in North America.  He regularly holds sermons calling to impose Islam, with instructions on how to advance the transformation of Western secular nations into an Islamic society.

 

He argues that while “it may seem from one perspective that Islam took over…it is really [taking] over in order to enhance the lives” of the people. He also calls on the newcomers to become politically active, because “changing society cannot happen unless we become involved in the political process.” The involvement in the political process, he explains, “is necessary to bring Sharia (Islamic Law) because Islam is universal.”

 

But what should be done to the infidels who reject the Invitation to Islam?

 

When such an invitation, the Dawah, does not convince all non-believers to convert, the Hadith provides the next step. According to the book “The Gardens of the Righteous” [Blog Editor: 346 pg PDF English translation via al Islam] – which was written by a Sunni scholar in the 13th Century, and published and distributed with modern commentary in the United States, and on social media by the Islamic Circle of North America, “Islam strives to achieve global dominance by jihad.,, Until Islam Becomes Victorious or We Die in the Attempt. ”

 

The Saudi Salman bin Fahed al-‘Auda, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s International Union for Muslim Scholars, who in 2017 was not allowed into Denmark and in September 2018 sentenced to death by a Saudi court, is famous for asserting that the solution to Islamic distress — that may bring about the fall of America and the Western world — “exists in one word which is Jihad.”

 

As al-Auda explains (quote) -“The West, and above all the United States, and Western culture, in general, are undergoing a historical process that is deterministic. This process leads to its total collapse, sooner or later.” He sounds like most Democrats turned progressive socialists’ Presidential candidates in the US…. Doesn’t he?

 

According to al-Auda and many other Salafi scholars – Jihad is intended to accelerate that collapse. And importantly, he reminds us that Jihad is fought not only on the battlefield.  “Weapons are not only the rifle, the bullet, the airplane, the tank, and the cannon. Not at all!When thinking about weapons to advance Jihad, think about the economy as a weapon, money is a weapon…”

 

Anyone critical of the Europeans’ open border policies, and the Islamization of Europe is labeled Islamophobe by the radical Left and leaders of wide-spread, well-funded Muslim organizations who use lawfare as an economic warfare against their critics.  Joining them are the leaders of the European Union, who willfully ignore the Islamic threat, in their haste to turn the European continent to a new, pinker version of the former USSR. The EU’s central bureaucracy delude itself into believing that they will be able to control the fast-growing radicalized Muslim population, as they have the secular Europeans.

 

Europe’s Left -leaning central institutions, and Europe’s leading Islamic organizations fight to protect their opacity. Both groups fear that transparency would foil their plans. Thus, they stigmatize their opponents as irrational and hate mongers to silence and abuse the legal system to punish them.

 

However, there is nothing irrational with those who dare to identify the threats posed by these two groups. The “Visegrad 4” – made of four Central European nations that for decades lived under Communism: Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary, joined in opposition to the EU’s post-nationalist, no-borders, “New Europe”, pro -Muslim migration agenda.

 

The Polish government, which resists the EU dictated quota of Muslim refugees, has instead “rolled out the welcome mat” for some 2 million economic migrants from Ukraine, who are seeking” a better life after the Russian invasion of 2014.”

 

At the forefront of the opposition to the EU’s efforts to end its member nations’ sovereignty, and creating a “new Europeans” with masses of Muslim migrants/refugees, is Hungary’s outspoken Prime Minister Victor Orbán.

 

The Ottoman’s Empire’s 158 years rule over Hungary (1541-1699), has not been forgotten. And Mr. Orban seems intent on preventing the history of Islamic oppression from repeating itself. Despite EU threats and sanctions, he continues to argue that “Without the protection of our Christian culture, we are going to lose Europe, and Europe will no longer belong to the Europeans.”

 

Would Europe catch up with Poland and Hungary? Could Europe get its act together before it’s too late?

Lan Astaslem – I Will Not Surrender


Criticizing Islam has long been branded as racism by the Left-Wing Press (which apparently now includes Fox News – see Judge Jeanine Pirro) and Muslim Apologists. The reality is even though a majority may follow (or perhaps pretend to follow) only the peaceful portions of the Quran, Hadith and Sira; the majority of terrorism committed globally is done in the name of Islamic revered writings’ teachings.

 

Depending who read, 49 or 50 Muslims died at the hands of a Left-Wing White Supremacists. The Media drools over telling the atrocity committed by a White Man against Muslim victims. AND YET the media and national governments seem to be in a blind slumber as THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS are murdered (oft times graphically) annually.

 

Justin Smith elaborates on the violent murders committed by Muslims in the name of Islam. DO NOT BE LIKE A MUSLIM AND SLIP INTO HATE, but react in self-preservation at all costs knowing that Christ died for an undeserving humanity and arose from death to life that the undeserving could attain eternal life through in the Risen Christ.

Lan Astaslem – I Will Not Surrender                             

The Commonality of Muslims, Nazis and Klansmen

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 3/20/2019 11:37 PM

 

Nobody wants to die before their allotted time for an average lifespan has been realized, but it happens when evil comes to call, in whatever form it has assumed that day. Many truly innocent people have been murdered over the course of history by all manner of evil, such as the Communist Bolsheviks, the National Socialists, Stalin, Mao, the Ku Klux Klan and much more, and no person who has served such masters, including Islam, can claim innocence, even though they themselves may not have ever killed a person as one of their members. Those who allowed the murders, in some cases praised and cheered, the mayhem, the chaos and evil, are complicit in the atrocities and just as culpable, including the so-called “innocents” murdered at Christchurch.

 

Right away the Leftist mainstream media gave every predictable response under the sun, from falsely proclaiming the Christchurch terrorist to be a “right wing conservative” to blaming President Trump and his alleged fanning the flames of “white supremacy”, when the only supremacists of the terror event were in the two mosques. Although the Christchurch, New Zealand terror attack was seen as horrible and heinous and the media wailed to the rooftops over its cost in human life, every single day we have massacres of Christians and infidels by devout Muslims occurring across the globe.

 

In Nigeria, the mostly Muslim Fulani tribesmen murdered nearly 8,000 Nigerian Christians, between January and July of 2018. During the three weeks prior to the gunmen murdering 50 Muslims in Christchurch, 120 Nigerian Christians were slaughtered by Muslims, and there was not one peep, not one utterance of shock, dismay or horror from the mainstream media, only the sound of crickets chirping.

 

Why the silence? Could it be that black Muslims killing black Christians was of no concern to a Far Left movement with a history of racism against people of color? Heaven forbid that their brown skinned Muslim allies meet any similar fate; that would not play well to their false political narrative seeking to always portray the Muslim as poor “peaceful” souls desiring only a “peaceful coexistence”.

 

In France alone, between January 7th 2015 and December 11th 2018, 262 people [Blog Editor: I found 245 killed in the same time frame] were murdered by Muslims in terror attacks. And in a nation with only 66 million people and 66 dead per year on average at the hands of Muslims, one understands that Frenchmen are ten times more likely to be murdered by a Muslim than a Muslim is likely to be killed by a non-Muslim anywhere in the Western world.

 

Islam and its adherents are so peaceful that one-hundred twenty-one Islamist groups across the globe killed 84,000 people in 2017, 22,000 of them civilians in sixty-six countries. While the list is long, we should also consider it is never ending, as exhibited by recent new attacks at a Philippine Church that killed 20, a Nigerian Church with 32 deaths and an Egyptian Church with 9 dead.

 

And who can forget the twin suicide bombings on Palm Sunday April 9th 2017 at St George’s Church and St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral that killed 45 and wounded 126 Christians? Evidently the Western media and politicians who virtually ignored the attacks.

 

As the organization ‘The Religion of Peace’ notes, in the month of February 2019 one-hundred and fifty-nine deadly Islamic terror attacks occurred in 22 different countries, that resulted in 883 deaths and 547 injured and wounded. Muslim attacks are nearly a routine event, and the mainstream media refuses to acknowledge that Islam is a violent ideology that represents an existential threat to all free countries.

 

If the Muslims at Christchurch were “innocent” — the term used by Muslim appeasers to harangue their opposition — they would not have continued in the Islamic ideology, that contains a supremacy demand in its Sharia law doctrine, that notes all other religions and ideologies must be forced, one way or another, to submit to Allah and Islam or eventually be killed. Innocents would not have stayed members of a so-called “religion of peace” understanding what transpires in the name of their false “prophet” and “god”, exhibited across the span of time and millions of murderous acts of violence from 622 A.D. to the present, as the Islamic hordes swarmed out of the Arabian Peninsula conquering nation after nation in military conquests, along with political warfare, conquest through rape and procreation and immigration, all methods addressed in the Koran and the Hadith.

 

Calling a Muslim an “innocent” just because he has never killed anyone is like calling a Klansman who has never lynched a black man “innocent”. He may never have killed anyone, but he full well understood the mission and his continued membership, inaction to stop the killing, and his silence amounted to tacit approval of such murders, just as a Nazi wasn’t “innocent” just because he never personally walked any Jews to the gas chambers.

 

One surely must wonder how many of these “innocents”, these intolerant Muslims, cheered and celebrated when America’s Twin Towers were brought down by an act of Islamic terrorism on 9/11.

 

Referencing the April 7th 2017 Islamic terror attack in Stockholm, that took the life of eleven year old Ebba Akerlund, the Christchurch shooter notes in his manifesto: “I could no longer turn my back on the (Islamic} violence. Something, this time, was different. That difference was Ebba Akerlund.”

 

If the Muslims of Christchurch are truly seeking a peaceful path in life, they should leave Islam, as so many already have.

 

America and the Western world must stop opening any portion of their nations to these sons and daughters of Allah and Islam, who have no desire to assimilate, while they also make no secret that they expect America, and Europe too, to completely succumb to Islam eventually. They have mounted invasion after invasion, not much different from the brutal incursions of the Ottoman Empire in the 14th and 15th centuries; only this time they use children, boats and suicide-bombers rather  than troops and cannons.

 

We greet them as guests, and they immediately act as if they own the country, as they join forces with the socialist authoritarian leftists and anti-American advocates of multiculturalism to suppress conservatives and Christians by decrying overblown and exaggerated incidents of “Islamophobia”, that are largely unverified. And now they seek to use a rare incident like Christchurch to enable sellout politicians in host nations to propose and pass new “hate-speech” laws, squashing individual liberty with stifling statism: Islam and Muslims work to make any host nation a new colony of Islam.

 

American culture is different from Islamic culture. There is no common ground. We are different.

 

Popularized by Oriana Fallaci, a much loved journalist and open critic of Islam, here are my final words to any and all who may take interest: “Lan astaslem”  (Arabic) — “I will not surrender“. [Bold text by Editor]

CAIR Loses a Round in San Diego to MEF-Funded Lawsuit

CAIR Loses a Round in San Diego to MEF-Funded Lawsuit

 

By Gregg Roman – Media Release

March 20, 2019

Middle East Forum

 

PHILADELPHIA – March 20, 2019 – The Council on American-Islamic Relation’s (CAIR) ubiquitous presence in the San Diego Unified School District is over, thanks in part to the Middle East Forum.

 

settlement in the federal lawsuit against the District, substantially funded by MEF, ends the District’s “anti-Islamophobia initiative,” which: (i) singled out Muslim students for special protections; and (ii) empowered Islamist CAIR to change the District’s curriculum to portray Islam more favorably.

 

The District enacted its initiative in 2017 at the behest of CAIR, which claimed that “Islamophobia” was sweeping through schools after the November 2016 elections. According to the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund – which brought the lawsuit on behalf of five San Diego families – CAIR activists were teaching schoolchildren “how to become allies to Muslim students” and conducting Islamic education workshops for teachers, among other inequities.

 

Under the terms of the court settlement:

 

  • “Educators should treat each religion with equal respect, with the time and attention spent discussing each religion being proportionate to its impact on history.”

 

  • “Educational material on religious subjects must be neutral and may not be presented in a manner that promotes one religion over another.”

 

  • “Educators or other staff sponsoring guest speakers at District events must ask them not to use their position or influence on students to forward their own religious, political, economic or social views and shall take active steps to neutralize whatever bias has been presented.”

 

  • “Guest speakers from religious organizations are not permitted to present to students on religious topics.”

 

“This is a tremendous victory, because CAIR intended this plan to be a pilot program for a nationwide rollout,” said Daniel J. Piedra, executive director of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund. “I thank the Forum for its support of this critical case.”

 

“This is a prime example of how the Forum helps protect the West from Islamist aggression,” notes Forum director Gregg Roman.”

A Message to Muslims — Without Apology


A White Supremacist attacked two Mosques in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. The result was 49 Muslim deaths. The American and global Left took the massacre as an instant of glee to take the opportunity to blame President Donald Trump who resides 8,904 miles away.

A Message to Muslims — Without Apology

The Religion of Peace

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 3/15/2019 12:44 PM

 

I can’t feel sorry for any the 49 Muslims sent home to Allah, in Christchurch New Zealand today, other than the innocent children that suffered the attacks on two mosques.

 

But today we see the Leftist Muslim appeasing news agencies like BBC going crazy and saying “See, see … terrorism knows no religion”. … as though there were hundreds of such attacks by Christians against Muslims today.

 

Everyone knows this is the exception rather than the rule, however, no one should be surprised. While there aren’t groups of Christians and Jews across the globe plotting to murder Muslims, across history Islam has always been the aggressor and the one moving to conquer its neighbors, plotting and murdering all who weren’t Muslim, all who refused to convert, as commanded by their so-called “Prophet” Mohammed and the Koran.

 

And it’s hard to feel sorry for any Muslims killed in any attack today, after the thousands of such attacks by Muslims against Christians, Jews, Yazidis and many other non-Muslim groups over the past four decades.

 

So … 49 Muslims dead. That’s 49 less potential global terrorists who might wage Holy War against the West and America. Forty-nine who were a part of the very same Islamic ideology responsible for 9/11, for Benghazi, for the Boston Bombing, San Bernardino, Florida and Chattanooga terror attacks and many more throughout the Middle East and Europe … the same ideology that beheaded thousands of Mosul’s Christian population and put their heads on spiked poles outside the city … the same ideology that placed Christians in cages and drowned them or burned them alive.

 

What does anyone, any Muslim, expect? If a group, a sect, an organization or an ideology one is a member continually commits mayhem, murder and unspeakable horrific atrocities against others over a sustained and lengthy period of time, it is only natural that those under attack will eventually retaliate against the bad actors of that ideology, which in this case is Islam.

 

Islam has done what it wants, murdering all who stood in its way for centuries. And now to hear imams and sheikhs playing the innocent victims of terrorism and Islamophobia is simply laughable.

 

If God were to strike every God Damned Muslim off the face of the Earth today, in one fell swoop, I would not shed a tear. I have no tears in me for Muslim deaths.

 

No … I don’t ask for anyone’s understanding, and I won’t make any apologies, but I just don’t feel anything over this attack … not happy, not sad … I just feel like Islam’s chickens are coming home to roost, and Muslims are reaping the bitter harvest they have sown.

 

Only One billion seven-hundred and ninety-nine thousand more to go.
