Muslims spit in girl's face and punch her for refusing their advances

(Birmingham) Last month, a couple of 16-year-old girls caught the Nbr 50 bus in Birmingham. Also on board were 3 Muslim lads who tried to chat the girls up, but the girls were having none of this and ignored them. For carrying out heinous crime of ignoring a Muslim, the three lads spat in the face of one of the girls, punched her in the face and did a runner. Real brave, eh? Islamophobia anyone?

Islamic intolerance in the UK

(Birmingham) Tuesday was the first day of Eid (the Islamic Christmas) and Muslims the world over celebrate it. However, it appears that Muslims don't wish to share any of that goodwill with non-Muslims in the UK. Which is why when 22-year-old Leon Jennings decided to visit the pictures on Wednesday with two friends, they would have a good time. Problem for Leon and his friends is the picture house they visited, Star City entertainment complex in Birmingham, is situated within the Muslim enclave of the city, and as they drove in, the security man on the gate said to them “not tonight, guys, it’s couples and families only”. They thought he was just joking and went and parked up. However, on trying to walk inside, the security guy stopped them from going in. He told them they couldn't go in because it was only couples and families celebrating Eid.

But they weren't the only ones turned away: Emma Noakes said on Facebook: ‘My friend’s family have just been refused entry at Vue cinema as they are not Muslim - this is a shocking disgrace.’

Get that, Muslims who immigrated to the UK from their home countries, usually by claiming their lives were at risk (usually due to Sharia law and such), go and rebuild the very societies they claim to be escaping, and thus start the ball rolling again.

Imagine the outcry if Muslims were banned from entering anywhere in the UK. It becomes a bloody racist hate crime. But when the show is on the other foot, f-ing silence from the liberal and Islamic world.

Pakistani man arrested in Norway over an axe attack on an imam

(Oslo) Nehma Ali Shah, the imam of the Central Jamaat Ahle-Sunnat mosque, was attacked with an axe by a masked assailant close to his home on June 17. Today Norwegian police announced that they had made a second arrest over the attack.

The first man arrested over this attack is a Norwegian man of Pakistani origin was arrested on June 30 on charges of suspicion of being either the perpetrator or an accomplice in the assault.

Is it just me or is Islam a bloody violent, intolerant cult which simply can't live in peace with its image in the mirror, never mind anybody else?

ISIS issues new rules for the women of Syria — cover up everything or else...

(Syria) Terrorist org ISIS has imposed a strict dress code for women in eastern Syria, forbidding them from showing any part of their bodies:
"Women... are completely forbidden from showing their eyes," Women are also forbidden from wearing "open abayas (traditional black gowns) that reveal colourful clothes worn underneath Abayas, it added, "must not be decorated with beads, sequins or anything else and women "must not wear high heels. Anyone who violates this will be penalised,"
I wonder when the bBC will get around to defending the above edict as somebody trying to discredit ISIS and give them a bad name.

Philippines to evacuate workers from Libya after gang-rape, beheading

(Libya) The Philippines is to charter ferries to speed up the removal of 13,000 nationals from Libya, officials said Thursday a day after a Filipina nurse was abducted and gang-raped there.

The foreign ministry on Thursday confirmed the sexual assault of the woman in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Wednesday.

It occurred 10 days after discovery at a hospital in the port of Benghazi of the beheaded remains of a Filipino construction worker who had been abducted earlier.

"We condemn these crimes that have been committed against our people," President Benigno Aquino's spokesman Herminio Coloma told reporters in Manila.

The woman was seized outside her residence and taken to an unknown location, where she was sexually assaulted by up to six youths, foreign department spokesman Charles Jose told reporters.

She was released about two hours later and a Filipino consular team took her to hospital for treatment, he added.

The Philippines ordered all 13,000 of its citizens to leave Libya following the beheading, with a consular team organizing evacuation by land to neighboring Tunisia and Egypt.

Syrian Kurds and ISIS slug it out, ISIS currently losing 35 to 14

(Aleppo) Bitter fighting between Syrian Kurds (who have seen their ranks filled with fighters from the East) and ISIS has seen the religious bigots losing ground to people who have been fighting all their lives against Western Muslims who presume that playing on an Xbox is all the training you require to bugger off to Syria with yer mates and Murder Death Kill for Allah.

After losing 35 of their bigoted number, the thugs of ISIS saw themselves lose a lot of ground to their much hardier opponents.

Hezbollah commander killed on 'jihad duty' in Iraq

A Hezbollah commander has been killed on "jihad duty" in Iraq, indicating the Lebanese group that is already fighting in Syria's civil war may be involved in a second front in the region.

Sources in Lebanon told the Reuters news agency on Thursday that the Hezbollah commander Ibrahim al-Hajj was killed in a battle in Tal Afar near Mosul, a city in northern Iraq seized last month by the Islamic State group.

Hezbollah has not previously announced any role in the conflict in Iraq, which escalated last month when radical Sunni militants seized large areas of territory from the Shiite-led government in Baghdad.

Hamas spent up to $100 million and more than 2 years to build attack tunnel network that Israel just destroyed in less than 2 weeks

Turkish court reduces sentence for man who stabbed wife due to the fact that she was wearing tights

(Erzurum) When a Turkish man saw his wife sit in the back seat of the car of a male friend she had known for 14 years at a service station on route to pick up her sister and brother, he saw red. And calling upon the powers of 'Gray skull' by uttering 'Allah ackba' he drew forth his trusty sword and stabbed his wife enough to put her in hospital.

In court, his defence pleaded that the reason why he did so was down to the fact his wife was wearing tights and thus she was acting “provocative”. As this is the country where only the other day the deputy prime minister said women should refrain from laughing, 'Turkish He-man' saw his prison sentence cut from 15 years to 6.

I see that Islam really does protect the rights of women.

Greek farmers who shot 28 Bangladeshi workers for demanding more pay walk free from court

(Patras) Last April, Greek farmers opened fire with shotguns on immigrant (cheap labour) workers who had asked to be paid for six months of unpaid labour. Dozens were injured, four of them severely.

Later investigations found that the workers had been living and working in squalid conditions without basic sanitation, and the case brought attention to the plight of foreign workers in Greece's desperate economy.

Well, for the crime of opening fire, the farmers had their day in court, and what do you know, today, 2 of the farmers were allowed to walk free from court, and 2 others who were found guilty and sentenced to 14 years and seven months and eight years and seven months respectively were also allowed to walk free from court.

So much for Greece being the home of democracy.

Pakistan Buys Russian Hind Helicopter Gunships

(Islamabad) After years of trying to get the US to sell them their latest helicopter gunships, Pakistan has unexpectedly turned to Russia and not China for the means to wage war from the air.

Russian Ambassador to Pakistan Alexey Dedov said Russia had agreed to sell the helicopters to Pakistan to assist the country with terrorism and the security related issues. Earlier this month, Russia was still holding talks with Pakistan on the supply of the combat helicopters and had lifted its embargo on the arms supply to Pakistan.

Russia, the traditional arms suppler for Pakistan's mortal enemy, India, must have felt put out by how India has been looking elsewhere for military equipment due to the Russians of late vastly increasing the price of its military goods at the last minute thus leaving the Indians with no other option but to purchase the Russian weapons.

The Mi-35, the latest derivative of the infamous Mi-24, used by virtually every Third World country in which to suppress the local population.

"No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling," she said.

Booby-Traped Explosives Built into Walls of UNRWA Clinic

Over 80 kilogram of explosive material built into rigged UN-funded clinic; no response from UNRWA.

Puts an entirely new perspective on the UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness' crocodile tears, doesn't it?
(INN) New details have emerged about the booby-trapped clinic explosion that killed three IDF Maglan unit soldiers in Gaza earlier this week - Sergeant First Class Matan Gottlieb, 21, from Rishon LeZion; Sergeant First Class Omar Chai, 21, from Savion; and Sergeant First Class Guy Algranati, 20, of Tel Aviv, hy"d.

Over eighty kilograms of explosives were built into the UN-funded hospital's walls themselves, it was cleared for publication Thursday - revealing that the clinic itself was built to mask, and perform, potential acts of terror on the IDF.

Moreover, the clinic was built over tens of terror tunnels, according to the report.

The UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) has yet to respond to the revelations, and has still not responded to the deaths of the Israeli soldiers Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Hamas and Islamic Jihad rocket arsenals were found in a UNRWA school for the third time this month.

After the first finding of rockets at an UNRWA school, it was reported that rather than destroying the rockets, UNRWA workers called Hamas to come remove them.

While it would not comment on the deaths of the three soldiers, UNRWA was quick to place blame on Israel for a rocket strike on one of their schools in Gaza.

The UN agency also immediately blamed Israel for a strike on Gaza’s Shifa hospital, resulting in the deaths of over a dozen Gazans. It was later revealed that in all likelihood, a misfired Hamas Fajr-5 Iranian-made 100 kg warhead destined for Israel had struck the hospital.

Operation Protective Edge: Ground Phase, Day 14

75 bodies found at Libyan base overrun by Islamists

(Benghazi) A so called special forces base inside Libya's second city which was overrun by gun totting Allah-ackba uttering peaceful Muslims on Tuesday (the day after Ramadan ended) has been found to contain the bodies of 75 people. So it is true, Muslims do abstain from evil thoughts, sexual desires and food during their holy month.

Israelis to file human rights violation complaints against Hamas

(JPost) Israelis can send complaints to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights that Hamas is violating their human rights, and NGO Im Tirzu encouraged them to do so at a conference in the Knesset Wednesday evening.

The NGO that describes itself as working "to strengthen and advance the values of Zionism in Israel" disseminated complaint forms at an emergency meeting of the Knesset Caucus Against Delegitimization of Israel, which can also be found on the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights' website.

Bar Ilan University Law Professor Avi Bell, an expert on international law, said Israelis can complain that their most basic human right, the right to live, is being violated.

In addition, Hamas terrorism violates freedom of movement, the right to a home and encourages hatred based on religion, Bell said.

However, Bell pointed out that submitting the complaints is, in a sense, recognizing the "State of Palestine" that signed on to the UN convention on human rights.

Former Ambassador to Canada and international law expert Alan Baker said "any civilian can submit a complaint against any country or any group for any violation of rights.

"We need to encourage people to submit complaints. We are doing this for the press and mostly for symbolic reasons, not because we'll actually get paid damages for it," he explained.

Caucus chairman Nissim Ze'ev (Shas) said the goal is "to create an Iron Dome against Hamas on a public diplomacy level. For the past decade, the terrorists and the left-wing in Israel and the world continue to use the Palestinians' human rights against Israel, when the situation is the opposite. Israeli citizens are under attack from Hamas rockets and the IDF is defending civilians from Hamas's crimes."

Ze'ev pointed out that if there was no Iron Dome, dozens of innocent civilians would have been killed.


Belgian doctor refuses treatment to Jewish patient

Patient suffering from a fractured rib told to get treated in Gaza; incident among string of anti-Semitic incidents in Belgium.
ANTWERP, Belgium (JTA) – A Belgian physician who refused to treat a Jewish woman with a fractured rib suggested she visit Gaza to get rid of the pain.

The physician made the remark on Wednesday while manning a medical hotline in Flanders, Belgium’s Flemish region, whose capital, Antwerp, has a sizeable Orthodox Jewish population, the local Jewish monthly Joods Actueel reported Thursday.

The woman, Bertha Klein, had her son, who is American, call the hotline at 11 p.m.

“I’m not coming,” the doctor reportedly told the son and hung up. When the son called again, the doctor said: “Send her to Gaza for a few hours, then she’ll get rid of the pain.” According to Joods Actueel, the doctor confirmed the exchange, saying he had an “emotional reaction.”

Health ministry officials were looking into the incident, according to the monthly’s online edition. According to Joods Actueel, the doctor knew the patient was Jewish because of Klein’s son’s American accent.

The family called a friend, Samuel Markowitz, who is an alderman of the Antwerp district council and a volunteer paramedic. He called the doctor to confirm the exchange, and also recorded their conversation.

Hershy Taffel, Bertha Klein’s grandson, filed a complaint with police for discrimination.

“It reminds me of what happened in Europe 70 years ago,” Taffel told Joods Actueel. “I never thought those days would once again be repeated.”

Michael Freilich, the editor-in-chief of Joods Actueel, said the incident is particularly alarming because it comes amid a string of recent incidents which involved boycotts against Jews in Belgium since the start of Israel’s attack on Hamas in Gaza on July 8.

Since then, an Orthodox Jewish woman was refused service at a clothes store in Antwerp, and police removed a sign in French and Turkish from a café near Liege which said dogs were allowed but Zionists and Jews were not.

Gaza protest march in Wales turns violent as Muslims attack peaceful drinkers

(Wales) A pro-Gaza protest in Cardiff turned violent when Muslims attacked drinkers enjoying the sunny weather. Of course, as this is the UK, the bBC and the police have blamed the victim. Watch the video and tell me who is doing the attacking. Peaceful Islam my arse.

Hands up those of you who live in the UK, who knew about this?

British PM hands over £3 million to Hamas

(London) The British PM just doesn't have a clue. After spending £12 billion a year on third world countries (predominately Islamic) on people who, let's be honest, hate our guts, the wanker at Number 10 Downing Street handed over £3 million today in which to help the people of Gaza over a war they started.

You know what I say, fuck them. Until these idiots realise that nobody is going to bail them out every time they subscribe to the Islamic notion of hate thy neighbour and start a war, then they will continue to do so. Let the intolerant wankers stew. I for one won't be voting Tory every again.

Hamas feels the heat, begs Hezb-allah to feel free to join in

(Gaza) The brave Islamic warriors of Hamas who presumed they could reverse their financial misfortune by attacking Israel and then sit back for a few days as Israel struck back, and then wait for the cash and gratitude to come in, must be regretting their money-making move when Israel didn't stop after a few days and is doing to Hamas what they did to Fatah, and that is wipe the floor with them.

Instead of parading their victory over the Jew, the brave Islamic warriors hide inside tunnels which they refuse to share with the civilian population.

Oh, the bBC loves Hamas. In fact, over here in the UK, Al Beeb has become the propaganda arm of Islamic terrorism.

Well, it appears that Hamas has a cunning plan - let's bring somebody else into the party. And so they are on their hands and knees begging Lebanese "freedom fighters" Hezballah to feel free to join in the bun fight. The problem for Hamas is, Hezb-allah kind of has its hands full inside Syria and any action by them will no doubt result in a harsh response by Israel, which may turn around their hard won gains inside Syria and see them in a very tricky position.

Poor Hamas. Looks like they picked the wrong fight (again). I'm sure the Islamic Commander-in-Chief in the White house will come to their aid.

After Eid prayers in Indian Kashmir, Muslims parade ISIS and Al Qaeda flags

(India) After the customary Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, pious Kashmiri Muslims waved the black flags and banners of ISIS and Al Qaeda in which to send the message to the world that Islam is a religion of peace.

Then these peaceful fellows started shouting anti-Israel and pro-Palestine slogans as only Islamic idiots can.

Cameroon’s Vice PM’s wife rescued, 16 killed

(Cameroon) It appears that Allah's favourite Nigerian terrorists picked the wrong victim when they kidnapped Amadou Ali, the wife of Cameroon’s Vice Prime Minister on Sunday.

Troops were mobilised and they hunted down the kidnappers, and in an operation that lasted several hours and saw 16 people killed, Amadou Ali has been rescued.

Expect the bBC to play the victim card for the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram.

A few things the IDF have found in Gaza

(Gaza) While the bBC reports that no Hamas terrorists have been killed in Gaza and that only civilians have been harmed, here are a few photos of what these so called civilians have been leaving behind in their haste to play the victim for the world's media:

Stephen Harper: Hamas is solely responsible for Palestinian casualties

(National Post) Prime Minister Stephen Harper is reiterating his government’s hard line against Hamas, saying it is solely responsible for the death and destruction in Gaza.

Harper said that while no one likes to see the suffering and loss that is occurring in the Middle East, Hamas is to blame.

The prime minister said Hamas started the war because the terrorist organization wants to destroy the state of Israel.

Harper added that if a terrorist organization were attacking Canadians, there would be a similar response from Canada.

(Aleppo) At least 116 people were killed by government forces in fighting across Syria during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, opposition activists have said.

Gee, I wonder why the UN, the US and the liberal media aren't saying anything about the above?

Islamic bigots murder Muslim woman for refusing to wear a veil in Somalia

(Hosingow) The gun totting followers of Allah in Somalia shot dead Ruqiya Farah Yarow outside her hut today because she refused to cover up as they demanded. No protests on the streets of Western capitals, I see.

Meanwhile, the odious bBC is reporting :
"An al-Shabab spokesman denied the group had killed the woman."
Just what is it about intolerant Islam that the bBC feels it needs defending? Be it terrorist attacks in London, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Nigeria or, as in this case, Somalia, they go well out of their way in which to defend the terrorist.

To celebrate Eid and the end of Ramadan, ISIS releases a video which shows the graphic execution of hundreds of people

(Iraq) ISIS, that bunch of misunderstood terrorists whom the bBC went out of its way the other day to defend by claiming that somebody was out to discredit it, has released a video nasty in which to see in Eid.

The video compilation shows dozens of young men men cowering in the shadow of gunmen before being brutally slaughtered. Another shows a group of soldiers led to a desert pit that will soon become a mass grave. Others are seen standing on a small river jetty before shuffling forward where they are shot in the head and fall into the water.

I wonder how the bBC will defend ISIS this time?

UNRWA spokesman and Hamas terrorism enabler Chris Gunness' crocodile tears

UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness loses his composure in an interview with Al-Jazeera Arabic.

After making a brief statement on the state of the Gazans, saying, “The rights of Palestinians, even their children, are wholesale denied, and it’s appalling,” Gunness pauses, clears his throat, says “my pleasure,” and proceeds to sob uncontrollably as the camera darts away.

It appears Gunness thought the interview had concluded.

If UNRWA wouldn't let Hamas store rockets on its premises and fire at Israel from its school yards, none of this would've happened.

Female bomber kills 6 in Nigeria, 10-year-old girl with explosives held

Muslim depravity knows no limits.
Kano (AFP) - A female suicide bomber killed six people at a college campus in Nigeria's Kano city on Wednesday, the fourth time Boko Haram Islamists were suspected of using a female attacker in as many days.

The latest violence came as the government announced the arrest of a 10-year-old girl with explosives strapped to her chest in a neighbouring area.

'Israel has ample evidence that Hamas is using UNRWA schools for terrorist purposes'

(JPost) Israel has ample evidence that Hamas is using UNRWA schools and facilities for terrorist purposes, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzahi Hanegbi said Wednesday.

Speaking at a press briefing in Jerusalem, he pointed out that on three separate occasions UNRWA itself has admitted that rockets were hidden in the basement of their facilities. “Who knows how many were not found,” he said, adding that this phenomenon was “totally unacceptable.”

Each time that the rockets were found, he said, they were given back to Hamas and have probably already been fired at Israel, “endangering and jeopardizing Israeli lives.”

“Instead of blaming and condemning Israel, UNRWA should make a real effort to stop being manipulated and used by the terrorist organizations.”

While saying that over a span of decades UNRWA “has done a great job helping the Palestinians in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip,” especially giving “blessed refuge for people leaving combat areas to save themselves,” the organization has failed to prevent its facilities from being used as terror headquarters and a hiding place for rockets.

Health officials in Gaza said Wednesday that Israeli shelling killed at least 15 Palestinians sheltering in a UNRWA school in Gaza's biggest refugee camp on Wednesday.

Some 3,300 Palestinians, including many women and children, were taking refuge in the building in Jabalya refugee camp when it came under fire around dawn, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said.

"Our initial assessment is that it was Israeli artillery that hit our school," UNRWA chief Pierre Krahenbuhl said in a statement after representatives of the agency visited the scene and examined fragments, craters and other damage.

An IDF spokeswoman said militants had fired mortar bombs from the vicinity of the school and troops shot back in response. The incident was still being reviewed.

Reuters contributed to this report.

28 Iraqi people killed in blasts in Baghdad

(Iraq) 28 Iraqi people were killed and 49 others injured in two car bomb attacks and a big fire in east of Baghdad on Wednesday.

The first, a booby-trapped vehicle, was detonated at a gas station in the (Shia) Sadr City, killing 20 and wounding 33 others.

The second was set outside a restaurant in the southeast of Baghdad, killing 8 civilians and injured 16 others.

For some strange reason, nobody protests in the West or at the UN over these ugly deaths.

Suicide bombers hit mosques inside Nigeria

(Nigeria) 13 people were killed and 35 injured when two mosques in northern Nigeria were bombed Tuesday night at the close of Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday marking the end of Ramadan.

I can kind of understand Muslims killing non-Muslims, but Muslims murdering Muslims inside a mosque on Eid?

Booby-trapped terror tunnel found in UNRWA health clinic, Obama joins ant-Israel hate fest

Tunnel found in UNRWA health clinic
More details emerge on the booby-trapped tunnel uncovered in the southern Gaza Strip today:

An Israeli elite squad searching for tunnels near Khan Younis uncovers a booby-trapped opening in a small UNRWA health clinic.

The troops send in sniffing dogs and a small robot to minimize damage to the structure, but despite the precautionary measures, the explosives rigged to the tunnel are detonated, demolishing the building on top of the soldiers.

Earlier reports indicated that a number of soldiers were injured.

Brig. Gen. Micky Edelstein says militants have used more than a thousand IEDs so far, destroying thousands of buildings in the Gaza Strip.

For instance, he says, in sweeps of a single street of 28 buildings last night, 19 were found to be booby-trapped.

3 IDF soldiers killed in booby-trapped UNRWA clinic
Three IDF soldiers were killed on Wednesday in Gaza in an explosion at a booby-trapped UNRWA health clinic that housed the opening of a tunnel, the IDF’s Gaza Division commander, Brig. Gen. Micky Edelstein, said.

UN chief says attack on UNRWA school is ‘unjustifiable’
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemns an Israeli strike on a Gaza school that killed 16 people as “unjustifiable” Wednesday, calling for those responsible to be held to account.

“This morning a UN school sheltering thousands of Palestinian families suffered a reprehensible attack,” Ban says during a visit to Costa Rica.

“It is unjustifiable, and demands accountability and justice.”

Ban accuses the Israeli military of ignoring repeated communications on the location of the school.

“I want to make it clear that the exact location of this elementary school has been communicated to the Israeli military authorities 17 times, as recently as last night, just a few hours before this attack,” he says.

“They are aware of the coordinates and exact location of where these people are.”
Sorry, Ban Ki-moon, but when UNRWA is repeatedly found storing rockets and weapons on its premises, some of which are also appear to be booby-trapped, it makes itself a legitimate target for ant-terrorism strikes.

Washington condemns shelling of UNRWA school
The United States is condemning the shelling of a UN school in the Gaza Strip that was sheltering displaced Palestinians.

The US did not say who was responsible for shelling the school. Gaza officials say Israel shelled the school, killing 15 and wounding 90. The Israeli military says it fired back after soldiers were targeted by mortar rounds launched from the vicinity of the school.

White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan says the US is also “extremely concerned” that thousands of Palestinians aren’t safe in UN-designated shelters in Gaza.

Meehan says the US also condemns those responsible for hiding weapons in UN facilities in Gaza. She says the escalation shows the need for a ceasefire as soon as possible.

NATO declares Russia violated Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty

Operation Protective Edge: Ground Phase, Day 13

Obama’s Muslim Founding Fathers

(FPM) In his message to Muslims on their holiday Eid al-Fitr, issued Sunday, Barack Obama asserted that “Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” He did not, unfortunately, provide even a single example of these “many achievements and contributions” that Muslims have made to “building the very fabric of our nation,” but he said that there were many, so they shouldn’t be hard to list a few, right?

You remember a few of them, don’t you? Remember the Muslim signers of the Declaration of Independence? With Yahya al-Hanqoq’s large signature front and center, so that the infidel King George III could read it without his spectacles? And then there was Ibrahim Clark of New Jersey and El-Bridge Gerry of Massachusetts. Remember also the Muslims who gave James Madison information about Muhammad’s Constitution of Medina – which, as we all know, granted equal rights to women and religious minorities, predating such documents in the West by 1,000 years. Madison, of course, used the Medina Constitution as a model when framing the U.S. Constitution.

Then there were the Muslims who fought so valiantly during the War of 1812 and the Mexican War. And in the titanic struggles over slavery, Muslims were front and center: remember the Muslim abolitionist Senators who faced down the South in the antebellum Senate, the Senate chamber ringing with their oratory about how the Qur’an says to free slaves and so the U.S. government should, too? Remember the Muslim regiments in the Civil War (all on the Union side, of course!)? Then in the aftermath of the Civil War came the Muslim industrialists who brought us railroads, the telegraph, the telephone.

Not to be forgotten are the Muslims who also fought courageously in the Spanish-American War, World War I and World War II, and the Muslim entertainers who kept us laughing on the Vaudeville circuit and on the home front during those terrible world wars with their jokes from the Hadith.

None of this rings a bell? Not to worry. Before too long it will be taught in all the textbooks. Absurd? Maybe – but no more than Obama’s statement itself. And even if they don’t go so far as to Islamize John Hancock and imagine Muslim Americans fighting against slavery and defending America in world wars, public school textbooks already present a ridiculously rosy picture of Islam. A study by the American Textbook Council, an independent national research organization that evaluates the quality of textbooks, found that ten of the most widely used middle school and high school social studies textbooks “present an incomplete and confected view of Islam that misrepresents its foundations and challenges to international security.”

The books present highly tendentious constructions as undisputed truth, making common cause with West-hating multiculturalists to bowdlerize the presentation of Islam, denigrate or downplay Christianity and Western civilization, and transform numerous public school textbooks into proselytizing tracts.

Meanwhile, even though the Constitution of Medina is of highly doubtful authenticity and is contradicted both by Islamic law and by Islamic traditions about Muhammad’s actions, it is already becoming common for Islamic apologists to invoke it as evidence that Islam and democracy are not only compatible, but that Islam originated the idea of republican rule. Ahmadi Muslim apologist Qasim Rashid recently wrote in the Huffington Post that “when Prophet Muhammad was popularly appointed Medina’s ruler, he entered into a pact with the Jewish communities of Medina. Through this pact, he granted equal political rights to non-Muslims. They were ensured complete freedom of religion and practice.” Undercutting Rashid’s case are the facts that Muhammad ended up exiling two of the Jewish tribes of Medina and massacring the third, and that the Qur’an mandates that Jews (and Christians) in the Islamic state, rather than enjoying “equal political rights,” must “pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued” (9:29).

But facts just get in the way of the narrative, and so the facts must go. It feels so good and multicultural to imagine Muslims at the founding of this nation, contributing to its very fabric, doesn’t it? Heck, speaking of fabric, probably Betsy Ross was a Muslim. And doesn’t the flag of South Carolina have a crescent moon on it?

Likewise regarding slavery – I imagine Muslim abolitionists above in pre-Civil War America above, in trying to give some substance to Barack Obama’s absurd statement. In reality, of course, there were no Muslim abolitionists, or Muslims, in the antebellum United States. What’s more, there were no Muslim abolitionists anywhere. Islamic apologists in the West routinely claim that Islam forbids slavery, but in fact the Qur’an takes slavery for granted, and according to Islamic tradition, Muhammad hallowed the practice by owning slaves himself. In some Muslim nations, it is still practiced, even though it is against the law (laws that initially began to be adopted in Muslim countries under Western pressure). Mauritania, for example, abolished slavery in 1981 and made it a crime in 2012, but it is still widespread — because it has Islamic sanction. Yet I myself remember being taught in high school, way back in the 1970s, that the last country to abolish slavery was Brazil, in 1889. There was no mention of Saudi Arabia’s abolishing slavery in 1962, or of the persistence of the practice in some Muslim countries. And that was forty years ago, showing that whitewashing of Islam in the textbooks, now rampant, had begun even then.

So when it comes to Barack Obama’s claim that Muslim Americans have made contributions to “building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy,” if there were no Muslim Founding Fathers scrutinizing the Constitution of Medina for material they could use in the charter document of their new nation, then they have to be invented. The textbooks have already departed from reality regarding Islam – what could possibly be the problem with a few more steps into fantasy? What difference, at this point, does it make?

To the Students for Justice in Palestine, a Letter From an Angry Black Woman

‘You do not have the right to invoke my people’s struggle for your shoddy purposes’

The student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is prominent on many college campuses, preaching a mantra of “Freeing Palestine.” It masquerades as though it were a civil rights group when it is not. Indeed, as an African-American, I am highly insulted that my people’s legacy is being pilfered for such a repugnant agenda. It is thus high time to expose its agenda and lay bare some of the fallacies they peddle.

• If you seek to promulgate the legacy of early Islamic colonialists who raped and pillaged the Middle East, subjugated the indigenous peoples living in the region, and foisted upon them a life of persecution and degradation—you do not get to claim the title of “Freedom Fighter.”

• If you support a racist doctrine of Arab supremacism and wish (as a corollary of that doctrine) to destroy the Jewish state, you do not get to claim that the prejudices you peddle are forms of legitimate “resistance.”

• If your heroes are clerics who sit in Gaza plotting the genocide of a people; who place their children on rooftops in the hopes they will get blown to bits; who heap praises upon their fellow gang members when they succeed in murdering Jewish school boys and bombing places of activity where Jews congregate—you do not get to claim that you are some Apollonian advocate of human virtue. You are not.

• If your activities include grieving over the woefully incompetent performance by Hamas rocketeers and the subsequent millions of Jewish souls who are still alive—whose children were not murdered by their rockets; whose limbs were not torn from them; and whose disembowelment did not come into fruition—you do not get to claim that you stand for justice. You profess to be irreproachable. You are categorically not.

• If your idea of a righteous cause entails targeting and intimidating Jewish students on campus, arrogating their history of exile-and-return and fashioning it in your own likeness you do not get to claim that you do so in the name of civil liberty and freedom of expression.

• You do not get to champion regimes that murder, torture, and persecute their own people, deliberately keep them impoverished, and embezzle billions of dollar from them—and claim you are “pro-Arab.” You are not.

• You do not get to champion a system wherein Jews are barred from purchasing land, traveling in certain areas, and living out such an existence merely because they are Jews—and claim that you are promoting equality for all. You do not get to enable that system by pushing a boycott of Jewish owned businesses, shops, and entities—and then claim that you are “against apartheid.” That is evil.

• You do not get to justify the calculated and deliberate bombings, beatings, and lynchings of Jewish men, women, and children by referring to such heinous occurrences as part of a noble “uprising” of the oppressed—that is racism. It is evil.

• You do not get to pretend as though you and Rosa Parks would have been great buddies in the 1960s. Rosa Parks was a real Freedom Fighter. Rosa Parks was a Zionist.

Coretta Scott King was a Zionist.

A. Phillip Randolph was a Zionist.

Bayard Rustin was a Zionist.

Count Basie was a Zionist.

Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. was a Zionist.

Indeed, they and many more men and women signed a letter in 1975 that stated: “We condemn the anti-Jewish blacklist. We have fought too long and too hard to root out discrimination from our land to sit idly while foreign interests import bigotry to America. Having suffered so greatly from such prejudice, we consider most repugnant the efforts by Arab states to use the economic power of their newly-acquired oil wealth to boycott business firms that deal with Israel or that have Jewish owners, directors, or executives, and to impose anti-Jewish preconditions for investments in this country.”

You see, my people have always been Zionists because my people have always stood for the freedom of the oppressed. So, you most certainly do not get to culturally appropriate my people’s history for your own. You do not have the right to invoke my people’s struggle for your shoddy purposes and you do not get to feign victimhood in our name. You do not have the right to slander my people’s good name and link your cause to that of Dr. King’s. Our two causes are diametrically opposed to each other.

Your cause is the antithesis of freedom. It has cost hundreds of thousands of lives of both Arabs and Jews. It has separated these peoples, and has fomented animosity between them. It has led to heartache, torment, death and destruction.

It is of course your prerogative to continue to utilize platitudes for your cause. You are entirely within your rights to chant words like “equality” “justice” and “freedom fighter.”

You can keep using those words for as long as you like. But I do not think you know what they mean.

UNRWA again, for the third time, "finds" rockets in one of its schools

Third rocket cache found at UNRWA school
(Times of Israel) UNRWA, the UN aid agency for Palestinian refugees, says it’s found another rocket arsenal stashed at one of its schools in the central Gaza Strip. This latest find is the third case of arms discovered at a UN-run school since the outset of Operation Protective Edge.

The UN agency says the school was closed for the summer and not in use as a shelter.

Tranquility news update

(Newsweek) The mob howled for vengeance, the missiles raining down on the synagogue walls as the worshippers huddled inside. It was a scene from Europe in the 1930s – except this was eastern Paris on the evening of July 13th, 2014.

Thousands had gathered to demonstrate against the Israeli bombardment of Gaza. But the protest soon turned violent – and against Jews in general. One of those trapped told Israeli television that the streets outside were “like an intifada”, the Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation.

Some of the trapped Jews fought their way out as the riot police dispersed the crowd. Manuel Valls, the French Prime Minister, condemned the attack in “the strongest possible terms”, while Joel Mergei, a community leader, said he was “profoundly shocked and revolted”. The words had no effect. Two weeks later, 400 protesters attacked a synagogue and Jewish-owned businesses in Sarcelles, in the north of Paris, shouting “Death to the Jews”. Posters had even advertised the raid in advance, like the pogroms of Tsarist Russia.

France has suffered the worst violence, but anti-Semitism is spiking across Europe, fuelled by the war in Gaza. In Britain, the Community Security Trust (CST) says there were around 100 anti-Semitic incidents in July, double the usual number. The CST has issued a security alert for Jewish institutions. In Berlin a crowd of anti-Israel protesters had to be prevented from attacking a synagogue. In Liege, Belgium, a café owner put up a sign saying dogs were welcome, but Jews were not allowed.

Yet for many French and European Jews, the violence comes as no surprise. Seventy years after the Holocaust, from Amiens to Athens, the world’s oldest hatred flourishes anew. For some, opposition to Israeli policies is now a justification for open hatred of Jews – even though many Jews are strongly opposed to Israel’s rightward lurch, and support the establishment of a Palestinian state.

As Stephen Pollard, the editor of the Jewish Chronicle, argues: “These people were not attacked because they were showing their support for the Israeli government. They were attacked because they were Jews, going about their daily business.”

One weekend in May seemed to epitomise the darkness. On May 24th a gunman pulled out a Kalashnikov assault rifle at the Jewish Museum in Brussels and opened fire, killing four people. The next day the results of the elections to the European parliament showed a surge in support for extreme-right ­parties in France, Greece, Hungary and Germany. The National Front in France won the election, which many fear could be a precursor to eventually taking power in a national election.

Perhaps the most shocking result was the surge in support for Golden Dawn in Greece. The party, which has been described as openly neo-Nazi, won almost 10% of the vote, bringing it three members of the European parliament.

In parts of Hungary, especially the impoverished north and east, Jobbik is the main opposition to the governing right-wing Fidesz. Jobbik won 14.7% of votes at the European elections. The party denies being antisemitic but even Marine Le Pen, leader of the French National Front, ruled out cooperating with them in the European parliament.

In November 2012, Marton Gyöngyösi, a senior Jobbik MP, called for a list to be made of Hungarian Jews, especially those working in Parliament or for the government, as they posed a “national security risk”. (Gyöngyösi later apologised and said he was referring only to Jews with dual Israeli-­Hungarian citizenship.)

Some saw the Brussels attack and the election results as dark portents. “At what point,” asked Jeffrey Goldberg, a prominent American Jewish journalist, “do the Jews of America and the Jews of Israel tell the Jews of Europe that it might be time to get out?” Around now, it seems.
