    Medical examiners in New York have ruled that the mysterious deaths of two sisters found dead and duct taped together on the banks of the Hudson River was a double suicide. The cause of death was drowning. The bodies of Rotana Ferea, 23 and Tala Farea, 16 were discovered on October, 24 2018 near the George Washington Bridge. They were quickly identified as Saudi citizens who had gone missing from a shelter-like facility, possibly for abused women, in Fairfax, Virginia in August. "Today, my office determined that the death of the Farea sisters was the result of suicide, in which...

    CNS ^ | 1/16/19
    – As the Women’s March continues to suffer defections over its leaders’ associations with Louis Farrakhan, the controversial preacher’s Nation of Islam has been hitting back, accusing “Jewish and white women” of trying to undermine the movement ahead of its planned march this weekend. In racially-charged columns, the Nation of Islam organ The Final Call has been slamming prominent critics who have raised concerns about anti-Semitism and called on the Women’s March leaders to resign. In doing so, the writers have accused “white women,” among other things, of supporting the oppression of blacks, and of historical complicity in rapes and...

    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...

    Freshman congresswoman shares story of her aunt who died in Somalia for lack of insulin Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar shared that her aunt died of “diabetic shock” in Somalia when she was 21 years old because she did not have access to medication, and said the fact that this sort of tragedy can happen in a country as wealthy as the United States is a “mark of shame.”“There are people in the developing world who are dying because they don’t have access to health care or they don’t have access to medicine. My aunt was one of those people,” said Omar, whose family resettled in...

    And their misdeeds track closely with Islamic teachings. Ari Lieberman on Wednesday here at FrontPage told the appalling story of Lara Kollab, a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine who was employed at the Cleveland Clinic until quite recently, when Canary Mission published a report on her fiendishly hateful anti-Semitic tweets, including one in which she declared that she would “purposely give all the yahood [Jews] the wrong meds.” Kollab, unfortunately, is not the first, and will certainly not be the last, Muslim doctor whose departures from the Hippocratic Oath track closely with Islamic teachings. The Qur’an tells Muslims that the Jews...

    The Cleveland Clinic confirmed that a resident who posted anti-Semitic comments on social media is no longer with the organization. The former employee, identified as Lara Kollab, worked as a supervised resident at the Clinic from July to September of this year. “She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic. In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system,” the Clinic said in a prepared statement. The Clinic said it was recently made aware of Kollab’s comments on social media. The former...
  • “World Hijab Day” urges all women to wear veils in solidarity with Islam

    International Hijab Day has now launched its campaign for 2019. The movement urges all women to wear veils and post pictures on social media in solidarity with Muslims. Since 2013, the International Hijab Day is organised. This year’s campaign targets everyone who uses social media. Through the hashtag #FreeInHijab, the movement will show the world that no woman is oppressed or imprisoned in her veil, but that it is a choice of free will, the founder Nazma Khan explains. Khan therefore urges all women, regardless of religious affiliation, background and ethnicity, to wear veils for 24 hours on 1 February...

    One of the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress took a snide dig on Twitter at Vice President Pence for sitting with eyes closed during a heated Oval Office meeting, posting a photo with the caption, “Jesus take the wheel!” — and the other incoming Muslim congresswoman applauded the insult. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) tweet ended with the hashtag #BorderWall, a reference to the contentious issue discussed during President Trump’s meeting Tuesday with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) The second Muslim woman elected to the House, Palestinian-American Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib,...

    Women’s activists are frustrated after last week’s ruling by a federal judge in Michigan, which declared that a 22-year-old federal ban on female genital mutilation (FGM) is unconstitutional.The decision came in response to a case in which Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, along with seven other people, was charged with mutilating the genitals of nine girls from Michigan, Minnesota, and Illinois between the years of 2015 and 2017. Authorities alleged that the girls were roughly 7 years old at the time of the procedure.According to prosecutors, Nagarwala ultimately headed up a conspiracy for over 12 years, which resulted in the procedure being...

    The American Jewish Committee responded in a tweet that: “Accusing Jews of dual loyalty is one of the oldest and most pernicious antisemitic tropes." Activist Linda Sarsour appeared to criticize American Jews of a dual loyalty to Israel in a Facebook post calling for support for Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar, following a backlash over her announcement that she supports boycotting Israel. Sarsour wrote in the post on Thursday that Omar is “being attacked for saying that she supports BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) and the right for people to engage in constitutionally protected freedoms. This is not only coming from the right-wing...

    Rashida Tlaib joined Ilhan Omar on election night to become one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress. Tuning into the news at dawn on Wednesday, the extended family of Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to the U.S. Congress, celebrated her victory in their home in the West Bank. ADVERTISING Tlaib, a Democrat, ran virtually unopposed in Michigan’s 13th congressional district, which encompasses southwest Detroit and its suburbs west to the city of Dearborn.

Tlaib is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and was arrested two years ago for disrupting a Trump speech in Detroit, reported Yeshiva World. Asked during...

    Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour said over the weekend that Muslims shouldn’t be humanizing Israelis, referring to Israel as the “oppressor.” As reported by The Investigative Project for Terrorism and the Algemeiner, during the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)’s conference, Sarsour declared that American Muslims “are complicit in the occupation of Palestinians, in the murder of Palestinian protesters” if they’re not actively promoting the Palestinian cause. “If you’re on the side of the oppressor, or you’re defending the oppressor, or you’re actually trying to humanize the oppressor, then that’s a problem,” Sarsour said.

    Jihad Watch ^ | 10/26/18 | Robert Spencer
    As Hugh Fitzgerald has often noted, Islam attracts the psychically marginal, for it provides a total explanation of the universe, taking away the difficult necessity of making moral decisions on one’s own. Islamic apologists often criticize Christianity for offering only “vague moral precepts,” comparing it unfavorably to Islam, which has a rule for everything that human beings can imagine doing. It is understandable that this total regulation of life would appeal to someone who has suffered from mental problems, as Sinead O’Connor has so publicly. That makes this a sad story. It is not, as O’Connor, aka Shuhada’ Davitt, “the...

    Minnesota state Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-60B) currently leads the race to fill the federal House seat being vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN). Immediately after being elected to her current seat in 2016, Omar faced allegations -- soon backed by a remarkable amount of evidence -- that she had married her own brother in 2009, and was still legally his wife. They officially divorced in December 2017. The motivation for the marriage remains unclear. However, the totality of the evidence points to possible immigration fraud and student loan fraud. Rep. Omar has stated that she did marry "British citizen" Ahmed...

    This story just keeps getting worse. The son of one of the most prominent and respected imams in the United States turns out to be running a jihad training camp in New Mexico, teaching young children to become school shooters. Now it turns out that he has two wives, one in Georgia, and one in New Mexico. The Daily Mail says this is because he follows an interpretation of Islam that allows for polygamy, but actually all of Islam allows for polygamy, because it’s in the Quran. The question is, how long has he been flouting American law, and with...
