    New Zealand police have charged six people with illegally redistributing live-streamed videos and images of the March 15th shootings at Christchurch mosques. They’re being charged with supplying or distributing objectionable material, which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison. Philip Arps, 44, and an unnamed suspect, 18, appeared in court on Monday in front of a New Zealand judge. The 18-year-old suspect is accused of sharing livestreamed footage of the attack, as well as a still image of one of the mosques targeted with the caption “target acquired.” Both he and Arps were denied bail. Shortly after the...

    United Nations refugee chief Filippo Grandi warned on Tuesday that a deadly attack on two New Zealand mosques was the result of the worst toxicity in politics and media toward refugees, migrants and foreigners that he had witnessed in more than 30 years. […] Grandi told the U.N. Security Council that the state of discussions globally about refugees and migrants “should be of concern to us all.” He did not specifically blame anyone. “I have never seen such toxicity, such poison in the language of politics, in media, in social media, even in everyday discussions and conversations around this issue,”...

    There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.4Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan proposed converting the fabled Hagia Sophia into a mosque on Sunday. The Greek government responded with anger on Monday, pointing out that the Hagia Sophia was the seat of Greek Orthodox Christianity for centuries and has been designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. Erdogan said during a television interview on Sunday that the Hagia Sophia might be “reverted” into a mosque, referring to the structure’s status as a mosque following the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453 A.D. The Hagia Sophia was constructed as a relatively modest Greek Orthodox church in 360,...

    In the wake of the recent mosque massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, Nick Riemer, a senior lecturer in English and linguistics at the University of Sydney, offered up a suggestion for preventing more such atrocities by presumed white supremacists: stop universities from promoting Western civilization. In a Sydney Morning Herald opinion piece titled, “After Christchurch universities have a responsibility: abandon Ramsay,” Riemer argues that if “Australian universities really want to combat Islamophobia after Christchurch, only one course is possible: abandon Ramsay immediately.” He’s referring to the controversial Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation located in the University of Sydney.

    Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Ilhan Omar appeared as the featured fundraiser for the CAIR Los Angeles chapter in Woodland Hills last night. CAIR is of course the fake civil rights organization and Muslim Brotherhood front/Hamas affiliate. Omar did not disappoint. She CAIRied on in her accustomed fashion. Omar, incidentally, told a mythical CAIR founding story in her remarks last night. I have posted the video below. Toward the end of her remarks last night (at about 18:00), Omar alluded to her criticism of Saudi Arabia in connection with the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Omar presented herself as a neutral critic...

    A Gateway Pundit reporter attended the Council on American–Islamic Relations 4th Annual Valley Banquet in California on Saturday evening — and recorded Rep. Ilhan Omar’s stunning speech in which she urged the crowd to “raise hell,” get in stranger’s faces, and “make people uncomfortable.” Rep. Omar, who has faced backlash over her antisemitic remarks, was greeted with massive protests as she arrived at the event.The speech started off in a pretty standard fashion, with the Congresswoman acknowledging that it has been a very hard week for Muslims given the tragedy in New Zealand and saying how thankful she is to...

    You might realize you have a problem when your defense from the highest elected official in your party is that pathetically lame statement. There were so many bad parts of this episode – which is not nearly over -- that they need to be illuminated now that we have a smidgeon of separation. First, let’s start with an indisputable fact: the Congresswoman from Minnesota has been and is an anti-Semite. I can’t tell you specifically why or how she became such, but she is. Anyone who says she is not is delusional. That sad defense by Speaker Pelosi was just...

    CHRISTCHURCH – Smelling of fresh paint, the two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch where a gunman killed 50 worshipers last week reopened their doors on Saturday, with many survivors among the first to walk in and pray for those who died. At the Al Noor mosque, where more than 40 of the victims were killed by a suspected white supremacist, prayers resumed with armed police on site, but no graphic reminders of the mass shooting, New Zealand’s worst. Aden Diriye, who lost his 3-year-old son, Mucad Ibrahim, in the attack, came back to the mosque with his...

    Barbra Streisand only met Michael Jackson a few times, but she definitely has some opinions about his alleged molestation of several young boys. Streisand shared her thoughts with the Times in the U.K. ahead of her July concert at London’s Hyde Park. Given that Streisand is one of the few people alive to have experienced a level of stardom similar to Jackson’s, interviewer Ed Potton asked about her thoughts on “Leaving Neverland.” The EGOT-winning singer says that she believes Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who allege in the documentary that they were abused by Jackson as children. “Oh absolutely,” she...

    New Zealand politicians, members of the media, and non-Muslim women embraced displays of Muslim faith Friday in an effort to show solidarity with the country’s Muslim community after the Christchurch shootings. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern donned a hijab, along with thousands of other non-Muslim women, and recited a passage from the Koran at a ceremony in Hagley Park shortly before the Muslim call to prayer was broadcast nationwide. Despite overwhelming support for the #scarvesinsolidarity campaign, Muslim and non-Muslim critics lambasted it, arguing that hijabs are used to oppress women in Muslim majority countries.

    Crime statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) show that more people were killed with hammers and clubs than with rifles of every kind in 2017. According to the Uniform Crime Report, 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed were rifles. The FBI report also reveals that 692 people were killed with “personal weapons” like “hands, fists, feet, etc..” and that is higher than the number of people killed with rifles and shotguns combined.

    Christchurch (New Zealand) (AFP) – Women in Christchurch wore makeshift hijabs as a statement of peace and solidarity on Friday, a week after a white supremacist killed 50 Muslims at two mosques in the southern New Zealand city. Rafaela Stoakes, a 32-year-old mother of two, said wearing the Islamic head covering gave her an insight into what it means to stand out and feel part in the minority. On Friday morning she covered all but a few locks of her dark chestnut-coloured hair in a loose red and white scarf, crossed neatly beneath her chin and tucked into a black...

"Among New Zealanders on social media, one of the images and accompanying words that has spread the most has been that this was their home and they should have been safe here," she said. Ardern confirmed that the Adhan, the traditional call to prayer, would be broadcast nationally on Friday, along with a two-minute-silence in honour of the victims. She added that...
