    The story of the Obama administration sending $770,000,000 in taxpayer money to rebuild and even expand mosques in foreign countries broke in October and enraged taxpayers everywhere. The question coming from taxpayers who were flipping the bill for foreign mosques but often struggling to pay their own bills was, ‘How could we afford to send such sensational, fairy-tale sized money to a foreign country while our infrastructure crumbles, our veterans starve, our job participation rate is at one of the lowest levels ever, and while our national debt stands at never before seen, record levels?’ READ THE REST AT http://resistancefeed.com/2016/11/18/obama-paid-770000000-taxpayer-money-to-foreign-mosques/

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 15/11/16 | Elad Benari
    A Jordanian official on Tuesday criticized the so-called Israeli “muezzin law”, which would ban places of worship, such as mosques, from using loudspeakers that disturb residents. The bill is aimed at limiting the noise of the muezzin, the Muslim who calls followers to prayer five times daily. The undersecretary of Jordan’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Abdullah Abbadi, denounced the law and said that any decision by Israel with regards to Jerusalem's holy shrines is “false and insignificant”. "An occupier cannot make any historical change to the city it occupies, and things (must) remain the same without any change,” he told...

    Despite a major Muslim protest at the Colosseum against the closure of illegal mosques, Rome police have continued shutting down so-called “garage mosques,” and now Muslims are threatening to invade Saint Peter’s Basilica to pray there. This week, authorities closed down another makeshift mosque in Rome for failure to meet building norms and for non-compliance with safety standards, the sixth such mosque-closing in the last months.In response, Muslims in Rome have threatened to invade the Vatican to pray in Saint Peter’s Basilica, which Italian media are calling Islamic “blackmail.”“As many as 300 people can pray here; where will we go...

    The Muslim Brotherhood's Conquest of Europe by Lorenzo Vidino Middle East Quarterly Winter 2005 Since its founding in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood (Hizb al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun) has profoundly influenced the political life of the Middle East. Its motto is telling: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."[1] While the Brotherhood's radical ideas have shaped the beliefs of generations of Islamists, over the past two decades, it has lost some of its power and appeal in the Middle East, crushed by...

    France has shut down at least 20 mosques and now has banned foreign funding of the Islamic houses of worship as well. At least 20 of the 120 Salafi mosques in the country have been shut down in France since December 2015. But in the wake of a third radical Islamist terror attack, last month Prime Minister Manuel Valls called for a ban on foreign funding on Islamic mosques altogether. Nor would Valls say how long that ban would last. A few days later, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve met with Muslim leaders about the ban, and explained it was time...

The largest in the world stands on the Camlica Hill, dominating the Asian side of Istanbul, where the East, in the words of Cocteau, extends to Europe “its old bejeweled hand”. The Turkish president is committed to the construction of mosques in European capitals as well. Erdogan seeks to create the image of an Islamic civilization on the rise once again with the Turks acting as the vanguard of this revival. Ten mosques have been financed by...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Could someone who worked at a Los Angeles-area mosque be linked to the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil? New allegations about the 9/11 attacks are coming from someone close to the classified investigation. In the three years following the terror attacks the 9/11 Commission found no evidence the Saudi government or high-ranking Saudi officials funded Al Qaeda. But John Lehman -- a former member of that investigative commission -- said a classified section of the investigation shows that as many as six Saudi individuals may have played a role in the attacks.

    However, Rubio is still the loser of this debate. Unlike the Florida man, Cruz never co-sponsored immigration reform with Chuck Schumer, but instead opposed that legislation. And Cruz, though he seems to have favored amnesty (in the sense of a path to legalization), never favored a path to citizenship, as Rubio did. To me, and probably a great many other Republicans, granting citizenship to those who violated our immigration laws is significantly more egregious than permitting them to remain here with legal status. But this doesn’t mean Cruz is the winner. Why? Because Donald Trump has insisted that illegal immigrants...

I was a firsthand witness to how these policies deliberately prevented scrutiny of Islamist groups.

    On the days when my wife teaches late classes at the university, we usually go for supper at a nearby mall, which boasts a massive "dining hall" (once a "food court") and which features a wide range of exotic menus to choose from. It is immensely popular, seating hundreds of diners at any one time, some in company, others peering into their smart phones, a few reading books, some attending to baby carriages, most clearly enjoying themselves under ample lighting in a mainly festive atmosphere. Janice and I were there for a 7 o'clock post-class supper on Wednesday, December 2,...

    SILVER SPRING, Md. — A Maryland state lawmaker announced plans Thursday to draft a new bill that he says would crack down on radical mosques, but which critics say would be unconstitutional. “It is time to seriously recognize that we are at war with radical Islam,” said Del. David Vogt, a Republican who represents Carroll and Frederick counties. Under Vogt’s bill, mosques and other organizations that are linked to the spread and support of radical Islam would lose their tax-exempt status. In a statement, Vogt said it is “quite frankly insane” for state government “to continue raising taxes on hardworking...

    Center for Security Policy ^ | December 15, 2011 | Press Release but authors of study in body of text
    The abstract for the study summarizes the research findings: A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers. Of the 100 mosques surveyed, 51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence; 19% had no violent texts at all. Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts. The leadership at Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshipper study violence-positive...

    Despite his swift conviction by both political parties and the media for thought crimes against humanity because he wants the U.S. to ban Muslim immigration, Donald Trump is not backing down.But Friday, Saba Ahmed, who heads something called the Republican Muslim Coalition, invited Trump to visit a mosque so she can disabuse the real estate magnate of his so-called Islamophobia.“I have found that some of your comments reflect a lack of familiarity with the Islamic faith,” Ahmed wrote today in her letter. “I would like to correct that, if you will permit me.”Ironically, Ahmed’s background and views — which Politico did not trouble...

Radical islamic terrorism has declared war on us, ISIS has declared war on us... they are endeavoring as we speak to wage jihad, and kill as many Americans as they can.

    As the plot thickens in the San Bernardino massacre, the FBI is trying to decipher several issues from abuse of the marriage and immigration system and whether these terrorists had Jihadi brides. Also who are these Russian girls involved in the marriage scheme. Also the FBI believes Farook had ties to a group of jihadists in California who were arrested in 2012 (which caused a previous attack to be thwarted that Farook was planning) for attempted to travel to Afghanistan to join al Qaeda. Then we have the possible main ringleader, second man, Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan (aka Miski, Malik John,...

    The man who purchased two assault rifles used in the San Bernardino massacre was more than just a friend to the gunman — he was also a relative. Enrique Marquez, who legally bought the weapons at least three years ago, and gunman Syed Rizwan Farook had a sister-in-law in common, according to marriage records. Marquez, a longtime friend of Farook who grew up next door in Riverside, became family last year when he married that woman's sister. Both women are from Russia. ... Three years later, Raheel Farook and his wife, Tatiana, were witnesses at Marquez's nuptials with Mariya Chernykh,...
