  • CIA Backed Aide To Obama’s Syrian “moderate” Rebels Comes To A Screeching Halt!

    I am so happy to report that Obama’s CIA backed so-called moderate Syrian rebels are not receiving their paydays any longer. Last month the money did not come, and the Obama gang is really up in arms about being cut out of CIA loop. I think it would be more accurate to say, they are down in arms, so they cannot give anymore to ISIS. Now they will all defect to the ISIS camp, as if they had not already, but Obama never gave up on them…(sarcasm). Hillary and Obama must be so upset to learn aide had been frozen...

    Seattle Mayor Ed Murray wants to know exactly what President Donald Trump has planned for cities like Seattle that vow to resist federal immigration enforcement actions. Murray, in his final State of the City address delivered Tuesday from a mosque, said Seattle was filing public records requests with the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies seeking information about the Trump administration's definition of "sanctuary cities" and what "enforcement actions the federal government may take against us." Seattle has vowed to protect immigrants and refugees and to not help federal authorities. Murray has instructed city departments to rework budgets...

    Donald Trump raised a lot of left wing eyebrows about a statement he made about Sweden. “We’ve got to keep our country safe,” he said. “You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice.

Stockholm police were forced to fire a shot into the crowd in the hard-hit suburb of Rinkeby, after a mob of around 30 began attacking officers with rocks. Violence erupted after the police had tried to arrest a wanted person on the subway. Sylvia Odin, of the Stockholm police, said: “There was stone throwing and they were placed in a situation where a number of people jointly attacked and threw...

    President Trump has taken some lumps over his comment in Melbourne, FL about Sweden’s problems assimilating Muslim immigrants. Few nations do righteous indignation more intensely than Sweden, which parlayed its neutral status in World War II into national wealth (the Nazis were happy to pay for high grade iron among other war materiel supplies by the Swedes) and, as a bonus, a postwar attitude of superiority over those who confronted the evils of communism. So when President Trump referred to a documentary he had seen the night before, the Swedes rushed to put him down, claiming there was no massacre...

But as the president himself later explained, he was referring to an actual, accurate news report that was broadcast the night before on Fox News about Muslim immigration to Sweden. On Friday night, Tucker Carlson interviewed documentarian Ami Horowitz about his upcoming film about the surge in rape and violence that has accompanied the increase of immigration to Sweden.

  • Sweden: est 77% of rapes committed by 2% Muslim male population – Crime statistics (2015 article)

    02/20/2017 5:38:59 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 23 replies
    This article toches upon the overrepresentation of ‘foreign’ born criminals in Sweden’s crime statistics. The total Muslim population in Sweden is estimated at 4.4% (2013 figures). Out of that 4.4%, and if we casually deduct the women and children, we can roughly guesstimate that around 2% are male. The ‘foreign born’ rape figures at 77.6% can quite securely be estimated to be a Muslim majority one today as the figures are behind by five years. We have seen this in Oslo (Norway) police stats from 2011. Oslo Police inspector Hanne Kristin Rodhe says the perpetrators often are unemployed, have been...

The Hurstville Boys Campus of Georges River College introduced the policy to allow Muslim boys to instead put their hand on the heart as a greeting. The Year 7 to 10 school's two principals told guests at its 2016 presentation day, including notable community members, that students may decline the gesture.

Windows were smashed, shops looted, fires lit, main roads blocked, and police cars targeted during the disturbance. According to Le Figaro, the destruction is getting worse. At the beginning of the week, on the nights of the 12th and 13th, 32 vehicles were burnt out. On the...

    Al Qaeda has used America's 'preoccupation' with the Islamic State to regain strength in South Asia and preparing to spread its ideology in India from its 'home' in western Pakistan, top United States lawmakers have warned. "Al Qaeda has never changed, and it still sees itself in what it conceives as an existential struggle against the West and against the United States in particular," Bruce Hoffman, Director Center for Security Studies at Georgetown University, told members of the House Armed Services Committee. "I think that it's taken advantage of our preoccupation with ISIS (Islamic State) to rebuild its strength, particularly...

    A new immigration row has broken out in Calais after the local council tried to block access to an aid point in the town which was set up by a Catholic charity. The notorious Calais ‘Jungle’ – populated by thousands of Africans and Middle Easterners attempting to seek asylum in the UK – was demolished last October and most of its inhabitants dispersed around France. In recent weeks, police say, hundreds of people have begun gathering in Calais again in the hope of entering to Britain. They are living and sleeping rough all over town. Some of them have been...

  • Blowin’ in the Wind: Trumpism and Traditional Islam in America

    How will the Traditional Islam movement in America respond to the Trump presidency? Will it focus on finding allies on the right and building a conservative moral majority that is Muslim friendly? Or will it focus on protecting civil liberties by allying with the left? How will it position itself with respect to rival movements like the Salafis and the Brotherhood-heritage groups — as their theological critic or their civil liberties ally when these rivals are discriminated against or have their rights taken away? Such choices facing Muslims are hardly unique to America and exist elsewhere.

    While it seems like every major story on the planet involves the Trump administration, things have actually been rather interesting in the rest of the world. Under the leadership of former ski bum Justin Trudeau, our neighbor to the north seems to be embracing some of the values that have made Europe so inhospitable to its indigenous population. As Barbara Kay has explained both in print and other media, the proposed law by a Muslim MP targeting Islamophobia is simply a pretext to police inconvenient thought which happens to offend the political class. Keep in mind, the country was no...

    n just two seasons, Indonesian Muslim designer Anniesa Hasibuan has made the hijab her trademark -- and dazzled New York fashion week's catwalk this week by styling it with flowing, iridescent gowns fit for a princess. Like in her New York show last fall -- which cemented her status as a rising star -- all of the models who showcased Hasibuan's autumn/winter 2017 collection sported lustrous gray hijabs that sculpted the facial features while carefully covering the hair.
