Genocide of Christians Reaches “Alarming Stage”


If someone ever tells you there is a Moderate Islam and a Radical Islam and the latter is not representative of Islam, that person is an outright liar or is deceived into believing a lie.

 

It’s kind of like telling a Jewish Holocaust Survivor there is a Moderate Nazi and a Radical Nazi.

The horror that is Islam is being experienced NOW by Christians in Muslim dominated nations. Can you say GENOCIDE?

Genocide of Christians Reaches “Alarming Stage”

  • Many of the world’s most persecuted Christians have nothing whatsoever to do with colonialism or missionaries. Those most faced with the threat of genocide — including Syria’s and Iraq’s Assyrians or Egypt’s Copts — were Christian several centuries before the ancestors of Europe’s colonizers became Christian and went missionizing

 

  • The BBC report highlights “political correctness” as being especially responsible for the West’s indifference….

 

  • Among the worst persecutors are those that rule according to Islamic law, or Sharia — which academics such as Georgetown University’s John Esposito insist is equitable and just. In Afghanistan (ranked #2), “Christianity is not permitted to exist.”

Christian persecution ‘at near genocide levels,'” the title of a May 3 BBC report, cites a lengthy interim study ordered by British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and led by Rev. Philip Mounstephen, the Bishop of Truro.

 

According to the BBC report, one in three people around the world suffer from religious persecution, with Christians being “the most persecuted religious group”. “Religion ‘is at risk of disappearing’ in some parts of the world,” it noted, and “In some regions, the level and nature of persecution is arguably coming close to meeting the international definition of genocide, according to that adopted by the UN.”

 

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is also quoted on why Western governments have been “asleep” — his word — concerning this growing epidemic:

 

“I think there is a misplaced worry that it is somehow colonialist to talk about a religion [Christianity] that was associated with colonial powers rather than the countries that we marched into as colonisers. That has perhaps created an awkwardness in talking about this issue—the role of missionaries was always a controversial one and that has, I think, also led some people to shy away from this topic.”

 

Whatever the merits of such thinking, the fact is that many of the world’s most persecuted Christians have nothing whatsoever to do with colonialism or missionaries. Those most faced with the threat of genocide — including Syria’s and Iraq’s Assyrians or Egypt’s Copts — were Christian several centuries before the ancestors of Europe’s colonizers became Christian and went missionizing.

 

The BBC report highlights “political correctness” as being especially responsible for the West’s indifference, and quotes Hunt again in this regard: “What we have forgotten in that atmosphere of political correctness is actually the Christians that are being persecuted are some of the poorest people on the planet.”

 

Although the BBC report has an entire heading titled and devoted to the impact of “political correctness,” ironically, it too succumbs to this contemporary Western malady. For while it did a fair job in highlighting the problem, it said nothing about its causes — not one word about who is persecuting Christians, or why.

 

The overwhelming majority of Christian persecution, however, evidently occurs in Muslim majority nations. According to Open Doors’ World Watch List 2019 [WWL], which surveys the 50 nations where Christians are most persecuted, “Islamic oppression continues to impact millions of Christians.” In seven of the absolute worst ten nations, “Islamic oppression” is the cause of persecution. “This means, for millions of Christians—particularly those who grew up Muslim or were born into Muslim families—openly following Jesus can have painful consequences,” including death.

 

Among the worst persecutors are those that rule according to Islamic law, or Sharia — which academics such as Georgetown University’s John Esposito insist is equitable and just. In Afghanistan (ranked #2) , “Christianity is not permitted to exist,” says the WWL 2019, because it “is an Islamic state by constitution, which means government officials, ethnic group leaders, religious officials and citizens are hostile toward” Christians. Similarly, in Somalia, (#3), “The Christian community is small and under constant threat of attack. Sharia law and Islam are enshrined in the country’s constitution, and the persecution of Christians almost always involves violence.” In Iran (#9), “society is governed by Islamic law, which means the rights and professional possibilities for Christians are heavily restricted.”

 

Equally telling is that 38 of the 50 nations making the WWL 2019 are Muslim majority.

 

Perhaps the BBC succumbed to silence concerning the sources of Christian persecution — that is, succumbed to “the atmosphere of political correctness” which it ironically highlighted — because in its own report, it did not rely on the WWL. The problem with this interpretation is that the study the BBC did rely on, the Bishop of Truro’s, is saturated with talk concerning the actual sources of Christian persecution. In this regard, the words “Islam” and “Islamist” appear 61 times; “Muslim” appears 56 times in this review on persecuted Christians.

 

Here are a few of the more significant quotes from the Bishop of Truro’s report:

 

  • “The persecution of Christians is perhaps at its most virulent in the region of the birthplace of Christianity—the Middle East & North Africa.”

 

  • “In countries such as Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Saudi Arabia the situation of Christians and other minorities has reached an alarming stage.”

 

  • “The eradication of Christians and other minorities on pain of ‘the sword’ or other violent means was revealed to be the specific and stated objective of [Islamic] extremist groups in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, north-east Nigeria and the Philippines.”

 

  • “[T]here is mass violence which regularly expresses itself through the bombing of churches, as has been the case in countries such as Egypt, Pakistan, and Indonesia.”

 

  • “The single-greatest threat to Christians [in Nigeria] … came from Islamist militant group Boko Haram, with US intelligence reports in 2015 suggesting that 200,000 Christians were at risk of being killed… Those worst affected included Christian women and girls ‘abducted, and forced to convert, enter forced marriages, sexual abuse and torture.'”

 

  • “An intent to erase all evidence of the Christian presence [in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, north-east Nigeria and the Philippines] was made plain by the removal of crosses, the destruction of Church buildings and other Church symbols. The killing and abduction of clergy represented a direct attack on the Church’s structure and leadership.”

 

  • “Christianity now faces the possibility of being wiped-out in parts of the Middle East where its roots go back furthest. In Palestine, Christian numbers are below 1.5 percent; in Syria the Christian population has declined from 1.7 million in 2011 to below 450,000 and in Iraq, Christian numbers have slumped from 1.5 million before 2003 to below 120,000 today. Christianity is at risk of disappearing, representing a massive setback for plurality in the region.”

 

The BBC should be commended for (finally) reporting on this urgent issue — even if it is three years behind the times. As the Truro report correctly observes, “In 2016 various political bodies including the UK parliament, the European Parliament and the US House of Representatives, declared that ISIS atrocities against Christians and other religious minority groups such as Yazidis and Shi’a Muslims met the tests of genocide.”

 

At the very least, it appears that the BBC has stopped trying to minimize the specter of Christian persecution as it did in 2013, when this situation was just starting to reach the boiling point.

We agree with Matteo Salvini that Europe’s borders must be defended against the migrant invasion


THANK GOD! There are at least two European heads of government that desire to preserve Western Culture above the incursions of Islamic Culture. May more eyes be opened in Europe to avoid making Eurabia a reality.

We agree with Matteo Salvini that Europe’s borders must be defended against the migrant invasion

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán

May 3, 2019 11:15 AM

Website of the Hungarian Government

 

At their talks in Budapest on Thursday, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini agreed on the importance of strong nation states, on the need to give priority in Europe to European culture based on Christian values, and on border defence.

 

At a joint press conference held with Mr. Salvini – who is also head of the Italian government party Lega – Mr. Orbán said they both believe the following: that there will be no strong Europe without strong and successful nation states; that on the continent priority must be given to European culture based on Christian values; and that “Europe’s borders must be defended against the migrant invasion”.

Speaking about Italy’s response to migration, the Prime Minister praised Mr. Salvini for “his efforts in achieving on the sea what we have done on land”. He said that the success of these efforts is of crucial importance.

 

The Prime Minister described Matteo Salvini’s visit to Budapest as an honour, adding that cooperation between the governments of the two countries has reached its highest point so far. He said that “the citizens of Europe will benefit from listening to Italy and Hungary rather than President Macron.”

 

He said that at the village of Röszke on Thursday morning he had shown the Deputy Prime Minister of Italy the Hungarian border fence. In relation to this, he told Mr. Salvini that the defence of its borders has so far cost Hungary more than one billion euros, but Brussels has not relieved Hungary of any part of this burden.

 

The Prime Minister also outlined the Hungarian proposal for the establishment of a new body comprising the interior ministers of the Schengen Area countries. He stated that powers related to migration should be taken away from the European Commission and delegated to such a body.

 

Mr. Orbán was asked several questions about interparty cooperation, replying to which he said that Europe will be led either by pro-immigration or anti-immigration forces. He observed that in the European People’s Party (EPP) there are both pro-immigration and anti-immigration forces: the left of the EPP is solely composed of pro-immigration forces, while to the right of the EPP there are only anti-immigration forces. He indicated that Fidesz would like the EPP to cooperate with anti-immigration forces, but that in the EPP party family this is a minority view.

 

On the question of whether Fidesz will remain a member of the EPP, the Prime Minister said that this depends on the party grouping’s future direction: if the EPP “ties itself” to the Left –which has a vision for Europe which is harmful, and which is continuously losing people’s support – then it will be difficult for Fidesz to find a place in such cooperation. He urged the EPP to be open to cooperation with parties to the right of it, including Lega. He stressed that Europe needs an alliance of anti-immigration political forces.

 

He added that “we’re tired of parties with support so small it can be barely seen with the naked eye lecturing parties in other countries which have significant electoral support”. He noted that this is exactly what has happened to Fidesz in the EPP, and that in the Netherlands, for instance, the party of the Socialists’ Spitzenkandidat Frans Timmermans “has effectively ceased to exist as a serious party”. He stressed that positions in European institutions are not “beds in hospices” for politicians who have failed in their own countries.

 

Asked whether Fidesz will join the “Salvini alliance”, the Prime Minister said that Hungarians themselves will choose what form of cooperation to take part in. In response to a German statement criticising Mr. Salvini’s visit to Budapest on Thursday, he said that this was a meeting between the Prime Minister of Hungary and the Deputy Prime Minister of Italy, and therefore “we expect more respect”.

 

“We shall seek conspicuous, avowed and open cooperation with Federal Secretary Salvini”, he said, adding that before the European Parliament elections he cannot answer questions on the precise form of cooperation between Fidesz and Lega.

 

Mr. Orbán said that he wants to cooperate with vigorous and ambitious people in Europe who want to take action, “instead of the Brussels bubble” which has lost contact with real life.

 

He also highlighted four problems which he said can only be resolved with a new European leadership: Europe is not defending itself; it does not respect the Member States; the incumbent leadership is not listening to the people; and Europe’s economic performance is continuously declining. He said that he agrees with Mr. Salvini that a new chapter must be opened in Europe.

 

In answer to a question on illiberal democracy, he said that liberals claim that people who are not liberal are therefore not democrats. In Hungary, he said, “we have had enough” of an equivalence being drawn between democracy and liberalism, adding that the Hungarian government describes its politics with the term “Christian democracy”.

 

Regarding the issue of solidarity, he confirmed his position that help must be taken to where there are problems, rather than bringing the problems here.

 

Responding to another question, he urged the Italian government to create a tax system incentivising businesses which both leaves more money with individuals and contributes more to the central budget.

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.

Britain Criminalizes Truth – Ask Jayda Fransen


By John  R. Houk

© March 31, 2019

 

While I was surfing around my Social Media connections I ran into a post on the soon to be dead G+ related to British Counterjihad activist Jayda Fransen. On G+ someone had shared a Youtube video of Ms. Fransen for support because she was found guilty of violating the UK’s Hate Speech laws. When I clicked to watch, a message informs you the video is unavailable on G+ but can be viewed at Youtube.

 

Ok, no problem. I clicked to go to Youtube. I get there and a content warning is plastered on the video telling you to be aware of offensive content and making sure you know that before you proceed. ALSO Youtube disabled the like, share and embed access.

 

TALK ABOUT CENSORSHIP!

I watched that roughly 9½ minute video. There is NO visual nudity, blood and gore. There is NO description of nudity, blood and gore. There is NO graphic profanity or even PG rated profanity. Now this is a lady reputed for her raw language a la fellow persecuted Counterjihadist Tommy Robinson. Jayda Fransen has the same raw language reputation. BUT NO SUCH RAW LANGUAGE IS IN HER PLEA FOR SUPPORT VIDEO censored by Youtube.

 

I’m not sure how I pulled it off due Youtube restrictions on downloading video, but I managed to do so. Since Ms. Fransen asks to share her video, I’m going to upload it to Facebook. But keep in mind I have had my share Facebook Jail and Censorship. Even if the upload is successful, Facebook may pull an unjust Youtube and restrict or remove the video under the lie it violates Facebook Community Standards.

You should be aware the British Press treats Counterjihadists as Far Right Extremist purveyors of hate. Certainly many if not most of the British Counterjihadists have a raw language issue and a past history riot provocations that both Left and Right-Wing Extremists are guilty. (Interestingly, one rarely if ever read negative reviews of Leftist provocateurs in the European Press.)

 

Below is a Press-friendly profile of Jayda Fransen – Cuz it’s her website:

 

Jayda Fransen – My Story

 

Jayda was born in South East London in 1986.

 

Jayda practised and studied law for many years before founding a recruitment consultancy.

 

Jayda has been involved in the counter jihad struggle for many years before joining Britain First.

 

In 2014, Jayda was elected Deputy Leader of Britain First.

 

Jayda has stood in elections to Parliament and the Greater London Assembly.

 

Jayda also served as Britain First press officer and has taken part in numerous high profile TV documentaries.

 

Jayda is a devout Christian from a Catholic background.

 

Jayda has risked her life on many occasions confronting dangerous Islamists and terrorists, such as hate preacher Anjem Choudary.

 

For many years Jayda has endured police persecution and harassment at the hands of the establishment.

 

Jayda was sent to prison in March 2018 for ‘harassing’ a migrant paedophile rape gang in Ramsgate.

 

And here are some not so friendly British Press on Ms. Fransen’s Hate Speech violations and court experience. These actions – keep in mind – in America would be laughed at as crimes because have the First Amendment:

 

A former deputy leader of far-right group Britain First has been convicted of stirring up hatred during a speech about Islam in Belfast.

 

Jayda Fransen, 33, was found guilty over a speech at a rally in August 2017.

 

She was also convicted for separate comments at a peace wall in the city.

 

 

The judge, when convicting Fransen, of Moat Avenue in Donaghadee, County Down, described her words as “a general, vehement attack against a religious group”.

 

 

The court heard that Fransen told those gathered at the rally that there was no moderate version of Islam and that: “These people are baying for our blood.”

 

She added: “Islam says every single one of you wonderful people here today deserves to be killed.”

 

Those attending the rally were then told it was time for the world to come together against “the one common enemy”.

 

The judge told the court: “I’m satisfied these words were intended to stir up hatred and arouse fear.”

 

He also found her guilty over a separate, filmed incident at a Belfast peace wall in December 2017.

 

‘Menacing in nature’

 

On that occasion, the court heard that Fransen declared the “Islamification” of Britain will lead to similar walls to separate the two sides.

 

She claimed the country was “descending into civil war” and said it was time to “rise up against the biggest threat against the entire world”.

 

Confirming a conviction for that episode, the judge said: “I’m satisfied the words were menacing in nature.”’ (Jayda Fransen: Ex-Britain First deputy leader convicted over hate speech; BBC; 3/29/19)

 

AND HERE:

 

‘A former deputy leader of far-right group Britain First has been convicted of stirring up hatred during a speech about Islam in Belfast at a rally in August 2017, according to media reports.

 

Jayda Fransen, 33, was also convicted for separate comments filmed at a peace wall in the city, the BBC reported.

 

 

The group gained international notoriety in 2017 after US President Donald Trump was condemned by the UK prime minister’s office for retweeting anti-Muslim videos posted on Fransen’s Twitter account, MEE reported. A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said at the time: “British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right, which is the antithesis of the values that this country represents – decency, tolerance and respect. It is wrong for the president to have done this.”’

 

I have to wonder how many Brits “overwhelmingly” agree with PM Theresa May?

 

Story continues…

 

‘‘The judge described Fransen’s speech as “a general, vehement attack against a religious group” and told Fransen to return to Belfast Magistrates’ Court for sentencing in May.

 

 

The court heard that Fransen told those gathered at the rally that there was no moderate version of Islam and that “These people are baying for our blood,” the BBC reported.

 

She added: “Islam says every single one of you wonderful people here today deserves to be killed.”

 

Those attending the rally were then told it was time for the world to come together against “the one common enemy,” the BBC said.

 

The judge told the court: “I’m satisfied these words were intended to stir up hatred and arouse fear.”’ (Ex-Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen convicted of hate speech: Reports; By MEE staffMiddle East Eye; 3/30/19 21:14 UTC – Updated 3/31/18 1:20 UTC)

 

The British Judge is vehemently outraged with Jayda Fransen for telling the truth about Islam according to the theopolitical religion’s own revered writings. ERGO, she is being punished by the force of law … for telling the truth!

Do YOU Want European Multiculturalism?


Shrug Off Islamophobia & Xenophobia Accusations

 

 

John R. Houk

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

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?
