    Freshman Congressmen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have wasted no time in shaking up the US House of Representatives. Early Friday morning, Omar and Tlaib introduced a bill adding Islamic holidays to the Federal calendar which has traditionally only recognized American holidays. Omar and Tlaib’s bill would add Eid Al-Fitr at the end of Ramadan and the four-day-long celebration of Eid Al-Adha to the list of Federally recognized holidays, potentially granting reasons to banks, schools, and other businesses to remain closed for five additional days per year. Omar and Tlaib justified their work as making America more inclusive of it’s...

    President Trump on Friday said a Michigan congresswoman “dishonored herself” and disrespected the nation when she called him a “motherf–ker” while promising to impeach him. “I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family,” Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden, in response to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s incendiary comments from the night before. “I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America.” Tlaib dropped the expletive at a reception for the Move On campaign on Thursday night — just hours after she was sworn in.
  • Meet NYC’s ‘Muslim Comminity Patrol’, Complete with its own squad cars.

    There’s something different about those new police cars patrolling the streets of New York City. They look a lot like your standard NYPD cruisers. They are Ford Tauruses painted white with blue trim. They have the same departmental insignia, followed by the same familiar blue lettering. But there is still something amiss. If you study hard, you notice it: Instead of NYPD spelled out on the front doors, these cars have the letters MCP. And in place of the CPR acronym on the rear doors, standing for “Courtesy, Professionalism, Respect,” these cars again have MCP, this time fleshed out to...
  • Exclusive: Nation of Islam receiving federal cash to teach prisoners

    12/19/2018 7:48:18 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 21 replies
    The Nation of Islam and its leaders have received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the U.S. government since 2008 to teach religious study programs for federal prison inmates, according to records reviewed by the Washington Examiner. A black nationalist group led by Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam preaches that white people are “blue-eyed devils” and Jews are “the synagogue of Satan." Its leaders have received at least $364,500 in contracts and awards from the U.S. Bureau of Prisons and the Department of Justice between fiscal 2008 and fiscal 2019. The funding was designed to provide "Nation of Islam...

    In a local election on Sunday, the residents of Kaufbeuren, a small town in Bavaria, voted against providing public land for the construction of a mosque. At issue was the question of whether the city would provide the local branch of the nationally active Turkish-Islamic religious association DITIB with a 5,000 square meter (54,000 square foot) plot in an industrial area. At least 45 percent of the approximately 34,000 voters took part in the election. A minimum of a 20 percent turnout was necessary to make the vote valid. The city must now break off its negotiations with DITIB. According...

    A federal judge on Wednesday refused to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a Chatham mother who says the school district forced her son to watch Islamic conversion videos and ignored the study of Christianity and Judaism. Libby Hilsenrath filed the lawsuit, on behalf of her child (identified as C.H. in the suit), against the Chatham School District and Board of Education, as well as the superintendent, assistant superintendent, middle school principal, Social Studies supervisor, and two Social Studies teachers. Judge Kevin McNulty said in the decision, on a motion filed by the school district's attorney to dismiss the lawsuit, that...

    Not enough German high school students receive Islam religion lessons, according to a new study by the media info service Mediendienst Integration.Around 54,000 students at 800 schools across the country currently receive Islam religion lessons, a significant increase on the 42,000 who attended such lessons two years ago, according to official statistics from Germany’s 16 state education ministries. But this is still much less than the 580,000 students who would potentially be interested in such lessons, a number that came out of a 2008 report entitled “Muslim Life in Germany” carried out by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees...

    Pressure is mounting against the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) for its controversial partnership with the San Diego Unified School District in developing an anti-Islamophobia bullying initiative that was enacted last April. Investigative subpoenas were issued Wednesday afternoon to CAIR’s chapter in California that seek all communications and documents concerning its involvement in creating the allegedly unconstitutional initiative. CAIR-California will need to produce the documents within 10 days, or it risks facing legal penalties for being held in contempt of court, according to the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF), a religious liberty group that issued the subpoenas.

    As Canada continues to support and implement Sharia Law, as well as slam its opponents by calling them "Islamophobes," a deeper look into what Sharia Law entails is in order. Recently, the Canadian government's Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage completed a draft of its Motion M-103 report, which recognizes "the need to...condemn Islamophobia" and "take action" against "religious discrimination including Islamophobia." According to the Ontario Human Rights Commission Islamophobia includes "acts of intolerance and racial profiling" as well as "viewing Muslims as a greater security threat on an institutional, systemic and societal level." However, it is not clear that Canada's...

    HISTORY teachers are being told pupils need not study British kings and queens, but must learn about early Islamic civilisation, Mayan culture or of Benin in west Africa. The Campaign for real education claims the new national curriculum for history makes the teaching of landmark events and personalities in British history “non-statutory”. This means key moments such as the reign of Elizabeth I and the Battle of Waterloo do not have to be taught. However, teaching about some foreign civilisations, including Ancient Greece, is compulsory. CRE chairman Chris McGovern said: “No landmark event in British history has to be taught....

    What is the role of the education system in our children’s lives? It seems that it’s constantly changing. Once upon a time, it involved teaching our children things like reading, writing, math, science, history — typical subjects to prepare them for the real world. Now, liberals are seemingly adding more and more to the curriculum, and not everyone is happy about it. Parents were reportedly furious after learning that the San Diego School Board of Trustees partnered with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, to launch an anti-bullying campaign. The campaign involves educating children about Islam, with the purported...

    Huma Abedin's mother told then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not to talk about sensitive issues like the prohibition on women drivers in Saudi Arabia, just before Clinton gave a speech at a Saudi women's college. "Do not even mention driving for women!" Saleah Abedin wrote in an email to Clinton. "The last visitor received a torrent of rejoinders from the students who said they have more important challenges to contend with." Saleah Abedin lectures on sociology issues at Dar Al Hekma, a women's college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where Clinton gave a speech in February of 2010. Her daughter Huma...

    First they suppress our free speech and our publications, and next they come for us. We have reached a serious crossroads in censorship by Paypal, Facebook, and Google. Have you noticed that “anti-Islamic” references have been suppressed by our media and even our President as of late? I have noticed it, and now I have shocking validation from Alex Jones of INFOWARS and Richard Spencer of JIHAD WATCH. We are in serious danger, and we are losing our sacred freedoms in the United States. We are seeing the Sharia agenda infiltrate this Country, and it is no conspiracy theory. The...

    The jihad against the freedom of speech is advancing rapidly, and most people don’t even know it’s happening.Turkey’s state-run news outlet Anadolu Agency reports: Google’s first page results for searches of terms such as “jihad”, “shariah” and “taqiyya” now return mostly reputable explanations of the Islamic concepts. Taqiyya, which describes the circumstances under which a Muslim can conceal their belief in the face of persecution, is the sole term to feature a questionable website on the first page of results. (emphasis added) “Reputable” according to whom? “Questionable” according to whom?Google has bowed to pressure from Muslims such as Texas imam...

    ...Saudi Arabia has, for decades, been making investments of a different sort—those aimed at influencing Indonesian culture and religion. The king’s current visit is the apex of that methodical campaign, and “has the potential to accelerate the expansion of Saudi Arabia’s cultural resources in Indonesia,” .. Since 1980, Saudi Arabia has devoted millions of dollars to exporting its strict brand of Islam, Salafism, to historically tolerant and diverse Indonesia. It has built more than 150 mosques (albeit in a country that has about 800,000), a huge free university in Jakarta, and several Arabic language institutes; supplied more than 100 boarding...

    Liberals have spent decades screaming about the separation of church and ‘state’, but now they’ve made a huge exception for Islam. The San Diego School District will start having school calendars showing Islamic holidays and begin to teach students about Islam in social studies classes and school district will create safe places on campuses for Muslim students as part of a multi-tiered approach to combat ‘Islamophobia’. This plan doesn’t include classes on Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion. The school district conducted a survey to see how much bullying occurred because of student’s Islamic faith and found only seven instances...

So I’ve heard all the negative stuff that they will say. And it hurts.”The district-sponsored presentation came with pamphlets that read “Know...
