No Denial – a Rebuttal

Published in the seMissourian, Speak Out, July 9, 2018

No denial

After WWII ended, many Germans said they had no knowledge of the concentration and death camp horrors implemented by the Nazis. Thanks to dogged coverage by the media, no American can credibly claim that he or she had no knowledge of the terrible tragedy occurring along the Texas-Mexico border.

Rebuttal:

Thank you to the citizen who wrote “No denial” that was published in Speak out on 07/09/2018. It brought back the undeniable fact that Franklin Delano Roosevelt (D) condemned, without due process, thousands of Americans of Japanese descent to concentration camps because of their racial ancestry. There is no denying that Robert Carlyle Byrd (D) was a prominent figure in writing Jim Crow laws that kept hundreds of thousands of a particular southern racial class in “ghettos.” The law that is the cause of the “outrage” on the southern border of the United States was signed by William Jefferson Clinton (D).  The heart wrenching photos of illegal alien children in “Nazi concentration camps” were taken during the Barrack Hussein Obama Administration. That is correct, “no American can credibly claim that he or she had no knowledge of the tragedy” on the southern border and which political party’s ideology is responsible for it.

Dear Mr. “Empty Suit” Donald J Bush,

You are the same as all the weak-kneed blowhard New Yorkers, you talk-the-talk yet lose your moral courage when the time comes to walk-the-walk.

I could go on and on about your betryal to your loyal supporters. But you know what!?

FORGET ABOUT IT!

Thank you, thank you very much,

Abbas orders staff to sever ties with US over Trump Jerusalem declaration

he Palestinian Authority’s rift with the U.S. is growing deeper, according to Israeli media outlets. PA President Mahmoud Abbas president has come to see U.S. President Donald Trump as “a lost cause,” according to the Tims of Israel.

Abbas is unglued and will not be comforted. Why? because America exercised its right to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in keeping with Jewish history of its land. This naturally does not bode well for Palestinian interests, as their primary goal is to obliterate the Jewish state. The world still has not come to grips with the fact that appeasement of jihadists just does not work. The more they are appeased, the more empowered and emboldened they become.

According to a report aired by Channel 2 news, Abbas was “not only closing the door, but throwing away the key” on the chance of any future Palestinian-American relations.

Now the “White House is reportedly looking for a Palestinian liaison other than Abbas.” Congratulations to the White House in attempting to maintain its honor in getting along, but its dream is rather unlikely, unless the PA changes its charter to accept Israel’s existence as a Jewish state.

“Reports: PA President Mahmoud Abbas Instructs Staff to Sever Ties With U.S.”, Breitbart, December 25, 2017:

The Palestinian Authority’s rift with the U.S. is growing deeper, according to Israeli media outlets.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas president has come to see U.S. President Donald Trump as “a lost cause,” according to the Tims of Israel.

The PA leader reportedly instructed his staff to sever all ties with US diplomatic officials at every level, including relations between the Palestinians and American diplomats posted at the U.S. Consulate in East Jerusalem.

The White House is reportedly looking for a Palestinian liaison other than Abbas.

Last week, the Palestinians announced they would not meet with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who was scheduled to arrive in the region. Pence visited U.S. soldiers posted in Afghanistan instead.

According to a report aired by Channel 2 news, Abbas was “not only closing the door, but throwing away the key” on the chance of any future Palestinian-American relations.

A White House official who was interviewed by the Times of Israel said in response to the Channel 2 report: “Apparently, the outlet that has reported this hasn’t been paying attention over the past several months. As we have said over and over again, we will not impose a peace deal. That is not news. We anticipated a cooling off period and remain as committed to peace as ever and are working hard on our plan, which we will present when the time is right.”

The Palestinians, according to Channel 2, have no plans to lift their boycott of the U.S.

Florida: Shaun King and Hamas-linked CAIR claim girl was attacked for being Muslim, but fight was really over a boy

Not just race-baiter Shaun King, who like the Palm Beach Post is apparently unaware that Islam is not a race, but also Hamas-linked CAIR has been all over this: see its press release, “CAIR-Florida Seeks Criminal Charges for Assault on Muslim Teen in Boca Raton.”

Shakeel Munshi, the father of the girl, is responsible. He posted the video of the fight at YouTubeand Facebook, with this claim: “My daughter Manaal munshi(14 years – 9th grade student) was getting bullied by couple of school (West Boca High School, Boca Raton, FL) girls because she was Muslim.”

But it’s all yet another lie, yet another fake hate crime, designed to enhance the false impression that Muslims are the victims of wholesale persecution and harassment in the U.S., and thus should be spared law enforcement scrutiny over jihad terror plotting: “The Sheriff’s Office said they spoke with the mother of the girl who was beaten and ‘at NO time was race or bullying ever discussed, determined or considered to have played a role in the altercation.’…’Nothing at this time indicates a hate crime. It was apparently over a boyfriend,’ the Sheriff’s Office told King on Twitter.”

“Girl’s attacked over a boy, not race, sheriff says,” by Hannah Winston, Palm Beach Post, December 23, 2017:

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. – The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the assaultof a high school student in suburban Boca Raton that was captured on video and has been viewed thousands of times on social media.

Investigators said one student from West Boca Raton High School and another from Olympic Heights High School agreed to meet at 2 p.m. about an unresolved dispute at South County Regional Park, north of Glades Road and west of State Road 7.

The video shows one girl attack another and bring her to the ground. Then, several girls gang up on the girl who is in a fetal position and beat her. A crowd gathers,  and many of its members use their cellphones out to record the attack. At some point, another girl walks over and attempts to pull two of the girls off each other. Though they stop for a moment, two of the girls go back at her….

One of the video’s of the fight has been viewed more than 72,000 times on Twitter. One of the people to share the video was Shaun King, a columnist for the online publication The Intercept. King directed his tweet at Boca Raton police — who are not investigating the incident — and said he “was told this is in your town and that this young Muslim girl had been harassed for months before she was brutally assaulted here.”

King asked why they allow “this culture of Islamophobia to grow.”

The Sheriff’s Office said they spoke with the mother of the girl who was beaten and “at NO time was race or bullying ever discussed, determined or considered to have played a role in the altercation.”

A man who identifies himself as the girl’s father posted the video on Facebook late Thursday and said his daughter was attacked because she was a Muslim. He said the girl had been bullied at school for her religion.

The video he posted was viewed more than 464,000 times as of Friday evening.

The Palm Beach Post called a telephone number listed for the father, but the person who answered the phone hung up. A text message was also sent to the same phone number, and the person on the other end identified himself as the girl’s uncle. The man, who did not give his name, said the family is “in deep shock.”

The Post made another attempt on a different telephone number listed for the father, but messages and phone calls were not answered. To protect the girl’s identity the Post is not identifying the girl’s father at this time.

King did not reply to either to Boca Raton police or the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, which replied to his tweet. Boca Raton said it was not its case and the Sheriff’s Office said criminal charges are pending.

“Nothing at this time indicates a hate crime. It was apparently over a boyfriend,” the Sheriff’s Office told King on Twitter. “Our deputy will be following up with the School Board to identify the multiple subjects in the video.”

Obama Was a State Sponsor of Terror

with one comment

It should not surprise or shock anyone that President Barack Hussein Obama has been revealed to have derailed the investigation and prosecution of Iran’s terrorist sock puppet, Hezb’allah, and its drug-running operation in order to complete the fatally flawed Iran nuclear deal. Obama gave aid and comfort to terrorist groups and their state sponsors from the day he was sworn in, to the point of actual criminality.

Consider the case of Bowe Bergdahl, the deserter who left his post and his comrades in an Afghanistan combat zone to “find himself” and also to find the Taliban. Former U.N. ambassador and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, propagator of the Benghazi video lie, laughably said on the same talk show circuit that Bowe Bergdahl had “served with distinction.” This was the administration view of the man for whom Obama would trade key Taliban leaders in our custody.

President Obama welcomed and commiserated with Bowe Bergdahl’s parents in the Rose Garden on May 31, 2014. It would be stretching credulity to beyond the breaking point to believe President Obama did not know when it was announcedwe were trading five top Taliban commanders, soon to be free to return to the terrorist battlefield, for Bergdahl.

Even if Bergdahl was not a deserter, the trade would have been a bad deal. AsInvestor’s Business Daily noted in an editorial charging “Obama Gave Material Assistance To Our Taliban Enemy,” President Obama committed a federal crime by trading Taliban leaders for Bergdahl:

As former congressman and Afghanistan veteran Allen West points out, President Obama signed into law only months ago the National Defense Authorization Act, which makes it a crime to offer or provide any material support to terrorist groups. It makes no exception as to who and under which circumstances.

The Taliban is considered a non-state terrorist group to which Obama has returned five of the worst terrorists held at Guantanamo. They are not foot soldiers and this exchange was not at the end of a war, when prisoner swaps often happen. They are four-star general equivalents who will return to the battlefield to target and kill Americans again. If that’s not material assistance, what is?…

“We have a federal statute which makes it a felony to provide material assistance to any terrorist organization,” said Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano in support of West’s opinion. “It could be money, maps, professional services, any asset whatsoever, include human assets.”

hat Obama would endanger American security for a dubious photo-op and help empty a Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention facility he had pledged to close is beyond the pale. But then so is going to bed to rest up for a Las Vegas fundraiser the night four Americans were killed in Benghazi, including a U.S. ambassador, Christopher Stevens. Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice couldn’t bring themselves to blame the terrorist groups that attacked in Benghazi, including Ansar al-Sharia, or even to utter the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.” They preferred to spread the lie that a video was responsible, a lie they repeatedon national TV, before the United Nations and to the parents of the Benghazi dead before their sons’ caskets:

Last Thursday, Judicial Watch issued a press release announcing that on Feb. 11 it had “uncovered documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing that top aides for then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, including her then-chief of staff Cheryl Mills, knew from the onset that the Benghazi mission compound was under attack by armed assailants tied to a terrorist group.”

The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, make no mention of a reaction to an Internet video.

But they do contain references to an attack for which the al-Qaida-affiliated terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia had taken credit, information available to the State Department before it released the statement implicating a video.

President Obama and his administration precipitously withdrew from Iraq, snatching defeat from President Bush’s victory, and then ignored intelligence warnings on the rise of ISIS for a year: Obama once told CNN that the rise and expansion of the Islamic State was “not on my intelligence radar” As theWashington Examiner reported:

President Obama admitted to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, in a TV special “The Legacy of Barack Obama,” that his administration underestimated the Islamic State terrorist group.

“The ability of ISIL to not just mass inside of Syria, but then to initiate major land offensives that took Mosul, for example, that was not on my intelligence radar screen,” Obama said in a pre-taped interview that aired Wednesday evening.

Well, in order to see something on your radar, you actually have to look at it, and the fact is that President Obama from the start ignored his daily intelligence briefings, including the ones about ISIS that he ignored for a year. The fact is that President Obama, who famously dismissed ISIS as a “JV team,” ignored the intelligence reports of the rise of the Islamic State and the danger it posed. AsInvestor’s Business Daily editorialized, Obama’s later promise to “degrade and destroy” ISIS was an empty threat by a President who could have destroyed ISIS in the cradle but didn’t:

Degrade? Degrading has been the foreign policy of a president who recently said that he didn’t have a strategy yet for dealing with the Islamic State’s butchery after watching it train and prepare for a year in its Syrian base before its “sudden” expansion into Iraq.

A former Pentagon official told Fox News that Obama received specific intelligence in daily briefings about the Islamic State’s rise. The information was said to be “granular” in detail, laying out IS’ intentions and capabilities for at least a year before it seized big chunks of Iraqi territory and started beheading Americans.

Obama’s indifference to the briefings was an issue during the 2012 campaign, when former George W. Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen observed that Obama personally attended only 44% of them. Obama’s perceived lack of interest in a terror war, which he claimed was won prior to the Benghazi attack, mirrors his reported lack of interest in the rise of the Islamic State.

So with Obama’s turning a blind eye to the terrorist threats posed by the Taliban, Ansar Al-Sharia, and ISIS, even offering material aid and comfort to the Taliban, should we be surprised that he flew pallets containing $1.7 billion in cash to Iran, cash used to fund terrorist groups like Hizb’allah whose drug-running he excused and ignored?

Just as he was an accomplice to gunrunning in Operation Fast and Furious, which got Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and many others killed, now we know Pressident Obama was so intent on getting any kind of nuclear deal with the state sponsor of terror known as Iran that he was willing to derail efforts that were about to shut down Hizb’allah’s drug running activities inside the United States:

In order to keep the Iran nuclear deal on track, Obama gave a free pass to Hezbollah’s drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations, including crimes unfolding inside the United States, Politico reported.

A Drug Enforcement Administration campaign, “Project Cassandra,” was launched to target the Iran-backed terrorist group Hezbollah’s illicit networks, tracing the actions “to the innermost circle of Hizb’allah and its state sponsors in Iran,” according to the online political news outlet…

David Asher, a Defense Department illicit finance analyst who helped establish and oversee Project Cassandra, said the Obama White House “ripped apart” their efforts.

“This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,” Asher said. “They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.”

The closer Obama got to cementing the Iran nuclear deal, Asher said, the more difficult it was to conduct their investigation into Hezbollah activities.

Obama shut down the opportunity to end Hizb’allah’s drug trafficking operation, putting the lives of American youth at risk, in order to cement his legacy in the fatally flawed Iran nuclear deal. As Josh Meyer detailed in Politico:

But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records. When Project Cassandra leaders sought approval for some significant investigations, prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, officials at the Justice and Treasury departments delayed, hindered or rejected their requests.

The Justice Department declined requests by Project Cassandra and other authorities to file criminal charges against major players such as Hizbollah’s high-profile envoy to Iran, a Lebanese bank that allegedly laundered billions in alleged drug profits, and a central player in a U.S.-based cell of the Iranian paramilitary Quds force. And the State Department rejected requests to lure high-value targets to countries where they could be arrested.

Coupled with his material aid and comfort to the Taliban, Obama’s obstruction of justice in shutting down Hizb’allah’s drug-running operation and failing to prosecute those running it constitutes crimes against the United States worthy of investigation, prosecution, and, yes, incarceration.

Pennsylvania: Muslim chases and shoots police officer, is killed in firefight with police

“’There’s no doubt he was directly targeting police officers,’ Marsico said. The DA added that El-Mofty recently traveled to the Middle East.”

The Islamic State issued this call in September 2014:

So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be….If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him….

“Gunman killed after targeting Pennsylvania cops in shooting rampage,” by Katie Honan, New York Daily News, December 23, 2017:

A gunman hell-bent on shooting cops was killed in a firefight with police in Harrisburg, Pa., Friday, authorities said.

During his rampage, Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty, 51, did manage to hit one cop with a bullet, Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said. That officer is in stable condition.

El-Mofty began his spree at 4:10 p.m. when he opened fire on a Capitol Police car near the State Capitol building in Harrisburg, according to Marsico.

The gunman jumped in a car and chased a Pennsylvania State trooper into a nearby residential neighborhood with guns blazing, hitting the officer once, Marsico said.

El-Mofty, who had at least two 9-mm handguns on him, then fired multiple shots at officers from the Harrisburg and Pennsylvania State police departments. He was killed during the shootout.

“There’s no doubt he was directly targeting police officers,” Marsico said. The DA added that El-Mofty recently traveled to the Middle East….

UN launches app to “empower” migrants, encourage them to “migrate safely”

The International Organization for Migration has launched ‘MigApp’ – a mobile phone app developed to “engage” and “empower” migrants and help them “migrate safely.”

Big ambitions for an app! Any serious-minded migrant will work with authorities on settling and integrating, while jihadists and entitled Islamic supremacists who are out to subjugate the House of War will merely mock this silly app, in which:

One button directs users to the IOM’s Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration service based across Europe….Another directs migrants to hundreds of organisations across the world where they can report people trafficking and “modern slavery” via its “Global Counter Trafficking Hotlines”.

This app does not really appear to be aimed at migrants at all, but to capture the minds of more bleeding-heart Westerners through propaganda. This app will appeal to those who continue to be completely oblivious to the news from countries in Europe that have experienced a barrage of Muslim migrants. Those countries have had their foundations shaken as they experience expanding lawlessness and no-go zones. Their basic principles have been challenged by their leaders’ acceptance of barbaric practices in the name of “diversity” and “tolerance.” Their economies have been weakened due to high levels of sustained unemployment among Muslim refugees, many (if not most) of whom are not even seeking employment.

“UN Launches App to ‘Empower’ Migrants, Encourage Them to ‘Migrate Safely’”, by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, December 19, 2017:

The International Organization for Migration has launched ‘MigApp’ – a mobile phone app developed to “engage” and “empower” migrants and help them “migrate safely”.

Introduced on Monday to coincide with International Migrants Day by the Geneva-based United Nations Migration Agency, MigApp is sold as a “one-stop-shop” app for migrants and “migrants-to-be” to find “services relevant to their specific migration process”.

The app descriptor boasts it gives information on migrant rights, risks, visa regulations, and intends to further the “IOM’s commitment to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society”, the UN agency hoping that one million migrants will be using the app by the end of 2018.

The app was launched prominently on the IOM’s website, with press releases heralding its arrival linking to posters and printable bumper stickers with a QR code to advertise the service.

Pitched nominally at legal migrants by prompting users to have valid passports and providing information on visas and immigration processes, the app is also angled towards non-legal and asylum-seeking migrants.

One button directs users to the IOM’s Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration service based across Europe as a means of returning failed asylum seekers and illegal immigrants to their home country, aiding
them to “avoid the stigma of deportation and its negative repercussions”.

Another directs migrants to hundreds of organisations across the world where they can report people trafficking and “modern slavery” via its “Global Counter Trafficking Hotlines”.

Aiming to “provide a platform for migrants to share their experiences” and “connect migrants”, another feature is the “I am a Migrant” button where users can read stories of legal migrants and asylum seekers and share their own.

“‘I am a migrant’ is the UN Migration Agency’s campaign to promote diversity and inclusion of migrants in society. The campaign uses the testimonials of migrants to connect people with the human stories of resilience and courage,” the agency explains…..

New York City: Muslim protester screams genocidal anti-Semitic jihad battle cry in Times Square

with one comment

By Robert Spencer
Jihad Watch
December 16, 2017

(Video thanks to Pamela Hall and the Geller Report.)

This is a call for genocide of the Jews. As I explain in my book The Truth About Muhammad, Muhammad led a Muslim force against the Khaybar oasis, which was inhabited by Jews — many of whom he had previously exiled from Medina. When he did so, he was not responding to any provocation. One of the Muslims later remembered: “When the apostle raided a people he waited until the morning. If he heard a call to prayer he held back; if he did not hear it he attacked. We came to Khaybar by night, and the apostle passed the night there; and when morning came he did not hear the call to prayer, so he rode and we rode with him….We met the workers of Khaybar coming out in the morning with their spades and baskets. When they saw the apostle and the army they cried, ‘Muhammad with his force,’ and turned tail and fled. The apostle said, ‘Allah Akbar! Khaybar is destroyed. When we arrive in a people’s square it is a bad morning for those who have been warned.’”

The Muslim advance was inexorable. “The apostle,” according to Muhammad’s earliest biographer, Ibn Ishaq, “seized the property piece by piece and conquered the forts one by one as he came to them.” Another biographer of Muhammad, Ibn Sa’d, reports that the battle was fierce: the “polytheists…killed a large number of [Muhammad’s] Companions and he also put to death a very large number of them….He killed ninety-three men of the Jews…” Muhammad and his men offered the fajr prayer, the Islamic dawn prayer, before it was light, and then entered Khaybar itself. The Muslims immediately set out to locate the inhabitants’ wealth. A Jewish leader of Khaybar, Kinana bin al-Rabi, was brought before Muhammad; Kinana was supposed to have been entrusted with the treasure of one of the Jewish tribes of Arabia, the Banu Nadir. Kinana denied knowing where this treasure was, but Muhammad pressed him: “Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?” Kinana said yes, that he did know that.

Some of the treasure was found. To find the rest, Muhammad gave orders concerning Kinana: “Torture him until you extract what he has.” One of the Muslims built a fire on Kinana’s chest, but Kinana would not give up his secret. When he was at the point of death, one of the Muslims beheaded him. Kinana’s wife was taken as a war prize; Muhammad claimed her for himself and hastily arranged a wedding ceremony that night. He halted the Muslims’ caravan out of Khaybar later that night in order to consummate the marriage.

Muhammad agreed to let the people of Khaybar to go into exile, allowing them to keep as much of their property as they could carry. The Prophet of Islam, however, commanded them to leave behind all their gold and silver. He had intended to expel all of them, but some, who were farmers, begged him to allow them to let them stay if they gave him half their yield annually. Muhammad agreed: “I will allow you to continue here, so long as we would desire.” He warned them: “If we wish to expel you we will expel you.” They no longer had any rights that did not depend upon the good will and sufferance of Muhammad and the Muslims. And indeed, when the Muslims discovered some treasure that some of the Khaybar Jews had hidden, he ordered the women of the tribe enslaved and seized the perpetrators’ land. A hadith notes that “the Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives.”

Thus when modern-day jihadists invoke Khaybar, they are recalling an aggressive, surprise raid by Muhammad which resulted in the final eradication of the once considerable Jewish presence in Arabia. To the jihadists, Khaybar means the destruction of the Jews and the seizure of their property by the Muslims.

 

Al-Shabaab kept women as sex slaves, subjected them to gang rapes and forced abortions

with one comment

By Robert Spencer
Jihad Watch
December 13, 2017

Why have we seen not just the Islamic State, but also Boko Haram and now al-Shabaab take sex slaves? Because it is sanctioned in Islamic law. The seizure of Infidel girls and their use as sex slaves is sanctioned in the Qur’an. According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful to you your wives to whom you have paid their dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses of those whom Allah has given you as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave girls: “The believers must win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or whom their right hands possess, for they are free from blame.” (Qur’an 23:1-6)

The rape of captive women is also sanctioned in Islamic tradition:

Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): 0 Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born. (Sahih Muslim 3371)

It is also in Islamic law: “When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.” (Umdat al-Salik O9.13)

The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 that “we are in the era of jihad,” and that meant Muslims would take slaves. In a subsequent interview he elaborated:

Jihad is only between Muslims and infidels. Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars—there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on.

When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an by the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess” [Koran 4:24]. This is a verse from the Qur’an which is still in force, and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex-slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point—there is no disagreement from any of them. […] When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.

Around the same time, on May 25, 2011, a female Kuwaiti politician, Salwa al-Mutairi, also spoke out in favor of the Islamic practice of sexual slavery of non-Muslim women, emphasizing that the practice accorded with Islamic law and the parameters of Islamic morality.

A merchant told me that he would like to have a sex slave. He said he would not be negligent with her, and that Islam permitted this sort of thing. He was speaking the truth. I brought up [this man’s] situation to the muftis in Mecca. I told them that I had a question, since they were men who specialized in what was halal, and what was good, and who loved women. I said, “What is the law of sex slaves?”

The mufti said, “With the law of sex slaves, there must be a Muslim nation at war with a Christian nation, or a nation which is not of the religion, not of the religion of Islam. And there must be prisoners of war.”

“Is this forbidden by Islam?” I asked.

“Absolutely not. Sex slaves are not forbidden by Islam. On the contrary, sex slaves are under a different law than the free woman. The free woman must be completely covered except for her face and hands. But the sex slave can be naked from the waist up. She differs a lot from the free woman. While the free woman requires a marriage contract, the sex slave does not—she only needs to be purchased by her husband, and that’s it. Therefore the sex slave is different than the free woman.”

Iraqi Ayatollah Al-Haeri said in April 7, 2016 that a man could offer slave girls to a friend for sex. In March 2017, Quebec imam Ewis El Nagar said that the Islamic ruling allowing slave girls was still in force.

The savage exploitation of girls and young women is, unfortunately, a cross-cultural phenomenon, but only in Islamic law does it carry divine sanction.

“Sex Slave Survivor of Christian-Killing Group Al-Shabaab Describes Gang Rapes, Forced Abortions,” by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post, December 12, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A woman who was held captive and repeatedly raped by members of Al Shabaab is sharing the horrific details of daily sexual abuse and forced abortions endured by those who are kidnapped by the the radical Islamic terror group.

Kenya’s The Standard reported on Sunday the story of one of the women who survived the ordeal at Boni Forest camp, identified as Fatuma, who said that she and others were raped by as many as six men at a time for five years.

“The women in the camp had to cook, wash clothes for the militants and undertake other household duties. The fighters frequently physically and sexually abused us. Some militants would beat us if they did not like something we cooked, which was often for me as I was not familiar with cooking Somali injera (bread) that was preferred by the militants,” Fatuma, who managed to escape the jihadists a year ago, explained.

She said the militants forced the women to use contraceptives and undergo abortions when they got pregnant.

The abuse reportedly worsened when Al-Shabaab fighters battled the African Union Mission in Somalia or Somalia National Army troops.

“They would drink and take drugs all day and night, whether celebrating the killing of Somalia National Army or AMISOM soldiers or mourning their own, and that’s when the gang rapes would happen,” she recalled.

Fatuma said that only the female captives who were married off to commanders were allowed to have children, and said that there were about 15 children at the camp.

The woman, who admitted that she was looking for work with Al-Shabaab before finding out what the group is really about, said that captives were also often forced to use drugs and were treated as prisoners.

“If you were lucky, a commander would take you as a wife and that would stop other militants from raping you. But those who were made wives were only native Somalis,” she said….

Why Radical Islam Is the Baby Boomers’ Fault

Millenials get a bad rap for being lazy entitled snowflakes who can’t take criticism or do a hard day’s labor. We also are criticized for pandering to Islamist sensibilities out of our misplaced desire for political correctness. Well, hold my avocado toast, old timer, because I need to explain some things to you.

This is your fault.

No, not you specifically (don’t get cranky), but the fault of baby boomers in the aggregate. You’re the generation that’s held power since the late ’60s (sorry Gen X, you never quite rocked the boat enough to get attention). Don’t get upset you didn’t know any better. You just weren’t paying attention and now we’re here, with terrorist attacks a possibility anywhere and at any time.

So here’s how the baby boomers set us up for radical Islam.

1.You Made the Saudis Rich by Buying All Their Oil

Since the 1970s, the government of Saudi Arabia has been spending money like a sailor on shore leave to fund extremism around the world. It’s estimated they’ve spent somewhere in the region of $100 billion funding their ultraconservative brand of Islam worldwide — paying for schools, mosques and extremist literature. All that money to support ideas that women are worth less than men, that gay people and apostates should be killed, etc.

But where did they get the money? Boomers gave it to them. Your thirsty little cars guzzled the stuff down like there was no tomorrow and you made no effort to invest in different sources of power.

By contrast, millenials have a significantly lower rate of car ownership than previous generations and are far more likely to support alternative sources of energy.

2.You Propped Up Extremists to Screw the Communists

Ronald Reagan armed and trained jihadi fighters in Afghanistan to get the Soviets out. Reagan also gave three billion in economic assistance and two billion in military aid to dictator General Zia Ul-Haq’s Pakistan. This is a regime that suspended elections and actively promoted Islamist groups such as Jamaat I-Islami, which is actively opposed to democracy. Pakistan’s Internal Security Agency (ISI) still supports the Taliban.

The accounts have been improperly audited and the Islamist-affiliated Pakistani government largely embezzled American largesse. Zia Ul-Haq is the dictator who aligned himself with extremist groups and promoted an extremist version of Pakistan that prior to him had not existed, including purging the universities of liberal- and Western-aligned elements.

Without the actions of Zia Ul-Haq, Pakistan would not be in the dire, Islamist controlled situation it is today. Who supported this? Boomers.

3.You Invented Political Correctness

If you’re worried about all the safe spaces and not being able to tell the truth about the ideology of Islamism, don’t look at millenials, look in the mirror.

Left-wing professors began preaching post-modern doctrines of cultural relativism in the 1970s. The upshot of those ideas is that it’s morally wrong for any group to uphold its values as better. And that given the history of power dynamics between Western and non-Western groups, it is doubly wrong for a Western group to hold its values as better than any given non-Western group.

The idea that Westerners ought to feel supremely guilty for the sins of the 19th and early 20th centuries are not millenial notions, they are boomer ideas.

Millenials are impacted by radical Islam in a big way. But that doesn’t mean the factors driving it are our fault. On the contrary, we inherited this world from earlier generations. Boomers set it up like this.

Radical Islam is on you.
