Ayaan Hirsi Ali On Ilhan Omar And The Roots of Somali Anti-Semitismby Shifra on July 22, 2019
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Somali-born Dutch-American activist, feminist, author, and scholar. She describes herself as having grown up “amid pervasive Muslim anti-Semitism.” In this column, she examines the roots of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Jew-hatred, and she states: “Hate is hard to unlearn without coming to terms with how you learned it.” Via WSJ. I once opened a speech by confessing to a crowd of Jews that I used to hate them. It was 2006 and I was a young native of Somalia who’d been elected to the Dutch Parliament. The American Jewish Committee was giving me its Moral Courage Award. I felt honored and humbled, but a little dishonest if I didn’t own up to my anti-Semitic past. So...
CNN Town Halls: No Questions On Anti-Christian Attack… Eight On Impeachmentby Shifra on April 23, 2019
No questions on a horrific, massive attack against Christians in Sri Lanka. As Tammy notes: ‘Easter worshipers?’ How the language of the left avoids real discussion of terror. But at the CNN town halls yesterday, not even one question about the attack on, ya know, “Easter worshipers.” Via NewsBusters. Monday night was truly a marathon for CNN as they aired five back-to-back town halls with 2020 Democratic candidates. Yet, despite it being only one day after the massive coordinated terrorist attack in Sri Lanka by Islamic extremists that mainly targeted Christians with almost 300 dead and 500 injured, CNN offered zero questions about anti-Christian bigotry. Instead, CNN asked those candidates eight combined questions on impeaching President Trump….
German Politicians ‘Alarmed’ at Scale of Anti-Christian Hate Attacksby Tammy on February 5, 2018
Great job, Germany, importing Jew-hatred, misogyny and persecution of Christians. They’ve been in a coma, obviously, as they’ve been importing people from a region that is swamped in hatred. This is out of control and has become a problem because of willful ignorance within the government. We’ve known for quite some time, this will not end well. Via Breitbart. Hate crime figures leaked by police in Germany have caused alarm, as they revealed murder, assault, and arson numbering among almost 100 attacks which targeted Christians in 2017. Published by the Funke media group several months before annual crime statistics are due to be officially released, the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) data showed attacks on churches and Christian symbols accounted...

Facing criticism at home, an Iraqi beauty queen on Wednesday defended her decision to pose for a photo with her Israeli counterpart and to post the joint selfie online, saying it was an expression of a desire for peace and not a show of support for the government of Israel. “I want to stress that the purpose of the picture was only to express hope and desire for peace between the two countries,” wrote Miss Iraq Sarah Idan (in Arabic) in her latest Instagram post.

Everyone please send vibes that this imam is now resting in peace, er, pieces. Via Daily Caller. The now-dismantled terror cell behind Thursday’s deadly terror attack in Barcelona had much bigger plans in mind, but an accident on the eve of the attack forced them to change plans. The van attacks in Barcelona and nearby Cambrils that left 14 dead and more than 100 injured were supposed to involve explosives. Newspaper El Español reported Saturday that the terrorists planned on driving vans of explosives into three busy tourist areas, including the city’s landmark Sagrada Familia church. The group was forced to reconsider their plans after a suspected bomb factory in a house outside of town blew up Wednesday night. Two...
Muslims Boycott Temple Mt. Over Israeli Police Installing Metal Detectorsby Shifra on July 17, 2017
If you are following the very recent events in Israel, you will probably see the words “Temple Mt,” Waqf,” and “security.” The Temple Mount, also known as the Dome of the Rock, is, according to Jewish tradition, the holiest spot on earth, for the last four thousand years. (But, of course, the Muslims just had to build a mosque there, in 705. Remember the outrage when a Muslim group tried to build a mosque at Ground Zero in Manhattan?) Following the 1948 War of independence, Jordan captured and gained control over half of Jerusalem, which included the Western Wall as well as the Temple Mt. In 1967, in the Six Day War, Israel regained control over all of Jerusalem. Here...

Brava! UK PM Theresa May Visits Saudi Arabia Without a Headscarfby Tammy on April 4, 2017
A role model for every woman, and should send a message to every female leader that acquiescing to Islamist demands need not be done.

Worth noting both Michelle Obama and Condoleezza Rice also refused to wear the head scarf when visiting Saudi Arabia. Via Fox News. British Prime Minister Theresa May, turned heads on Tuesday when she arrived in Saudi Arabia without wearing a headscarf – reportedly bucking the advice of her own government.

Europe Keeps Sending Welfare Payments To ISIS Terroristsby Tammy on February 23, 2017
Denmark says the law makes it impossible for them to cut “sickness” and “disability” payments to terrorists fighting in Syria. Welcome to another catastrophe handed to Europe and Scandinavia by the left. Via USA Today. Governments across Europe have accidentally paid taxpayer-funded welfare benefits such as unemployment funds, disability pensions and housing allowances to Islamic State militants who have used the money to wage war in Iraq and Syria, authorities and terrorism experts say. Danish officials said this week that 29 citizens were given $100,000 in public pension benefits because they were considered too ill or disabled to work, and they then fled to Syria to fight for the radical group. Denmark has one of the world’s most generous social-welfare systems, which provides eligible unemployed people...

Light Sentences for 2 of 3 ISIS Conspirators in Minnesotaby Tammy on November 14, 2016
Abdullahi Mohamed Yusuf and Abdirizak Warsame This is what happens when you allow the civilian criminal courts to adjudicate a military/war issue. Here the judge doesn’t think prison is appropriate because that wouldn’t allow the government to “help him.” Like this is somehow group therapy. Amazing. These are people trying to help terrorists and become terrorists themselves. Via CBS News.

(Video) DHS Official Admits: We Do Not Screen Refugees For Radical Viewsby Shifra on September 29, 2016

She will be “Obama on steroids” when it comes to unvetted immigration. Via Daily Caller.
