Viral Video by Muslim Woman Sparks Movement to Defeat Radical Islam – Breitbart
Sunday, February 07, 2016
By the Numbers is an honest and open discussion about Muslim opinions and demographics.
Narrated by Raheel Raza, president of Muslims Facing Tomorrow, this short film is about the acceptance that radical Islam is a bigger problem than most politically correct governments and individuals are ready to admit. Is ISIS, the Islamic State, trying to penetrate the U.S. with the refugee influx? Are Muslims radicalized on U.S. soil? Are organizations such as CAIR, who purport to represent American Muslims accepting and liberal or radicalized with links to terror organizations?
Trump’s Ban on Muslims: The Discussion the Media Won’t Have
On December 7, 2015, U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign released a press statement calling “for a complete and total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our representatives can figure out what is going on.”
He was publicly saying what an increasing number of Americans over the years have apparently begun to think about Muslims and Islam in terms of the “clear and present” danger to their security and their country.
Trump's call to ban the entry of Muslims to the U.S. seemed to indicate that it should be temporary, until the American leadership has figured out what in the complex reality of the Muslim world – religious, political, economic, cultural, and so on– contributes to turning a significant portion of Muslims into jihadi operatives at war with the United States.
Despite numerous terrorist attacks carried out by extremist Muslims inside the United States, Americans have not turned against their Muslim neighbors; on the contrary, Americans and Europeans in general have continued to be accommodating, tolerant, even protective, of Muslims in their midst, in keeping with their secular and liberal democratic values.
Americans have watched the unabated spread of terrorism and warfare in the name of Islam; the intensity of hatred in Muslim countries directed towards the United States; the attacks on Americans by extremist Muslims, and the betrayals by Muslim countries that have been receiving American assistance, such as Pakistan.
The elite in Muslim-majority states is mostly, if not entirely, responsible for the wretched state of affairs that has left those states at the bottom of the list of countries when measured in terms of economic development, human rights, gender equality, education, freedom and democracy.
For the elite in third world societies, a getaway to America has meant a readily available exit to avoid being held accountable for their misdeeds.
Herein lies the irony of a Trump's proposed ban: it would greatly affect the Muslim elite and, consequently, compel them to begin taking responsibility for how they have mismanaged their societies and impoverished their people. Read it all here...............
The UN should tell this Paki Bitch to shut the f&^*up! This is how the charge of “Islamophobia” works.
When a Muslim cleric such as Abu Hamza Ashur
says “Kill them! Poison your daggers, and then stab or slaughter them.
Blow them up, shed their blood, pounce on them, dismember them, paralyze
them, make the earth quake under their feet, trample on their heads….By
Allah, we will use it to turn you into body parts, and we will send you
messages written in blood.
By Allah, we will annihilate you with it. We
will turn you into lifeless corpses, and into scattered body parts,

Note the conflation of “Islamophobia,” an invented term designed to
intimidate people into thinking it wrong to oppose jihad terror, with
xenophobia. Yet there is no problem in Europe or North America with

by xenophobia, but by a desire to protect their countries and

DHS ordered agent to scrub records of 100s of Muslims with terror ties
What could possibly have been Obama’s motive to do this? What possible
effect could it have had other than to allow for more jihad terror
“DHS ordered me to scrub records of Muslims with terror ties,” by Philip Haney, The Hill, February 5, 2016 (thanks to Pamela Geller): Amid the chaos of the 2009 holiday travel season,
jihadists planned to slaughter 290 innocent travelers on a Christmas Day
flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan.
Nigerian Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab intended to detonate
Northwest Airlines Flight 253, but the explosives in his underwear
malfunctioned and brave passengers subdued him until he could be
arrested. The graphic and traumatic defeat they planned for the United
States failed, that time.
Following the attempted attack, President Obama threw the
intelligence community under the bus for its failure to “connect the
dots.” He said, “this was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a
failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already
had.” Most Americans were unaware of the enormous damage to morale at the
Department of Homeland Security, where I worked, his condemnation
His words infuriated many of us because we knew his
administration had been engaged in a bureaucratic effort to destroy the
raw material—the actual intelligence we had collected for years, and
erase those dots. The dots constitute the intelligence needed to keep
Americans safe, and the Obama administration was ordering they be wiped
They know that the

“A private school girl, mothers who excuse gang rape and a terrifying
culture clash no one dares talk about: How Somalian men are living by
their own laws… and causing devastating repercussions in Britain,” by
Paul Bracchi and Liz Hull, Daily Mail, February 5, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
The Victoria Park Hotel is a short walk from the bustling
Manchester thoroughfare known locally as the ‘Curry Mile.’
establishment offers budget accommodation at cheap prices (£45 for a
single bed). Standards at the hotel reflect the bargain-basement rates. Several
ground-floor windows are boarded up. Guests have complained of mould in
bathrooms, marks on walls and ceilings, and dirty bed linen. Room 38 is on the first floor.
It is also where, just before midday
on August 9, 2013, a young girl found herself trapped and about to be
subjected to the most degrading and terrifying ordeal imaginable. She
was 16, an A-grade student from a middle-class family, who had just
completed her GCSEs at a leading private school. How she came to be in Room 38 of this squalid hotel in Rusholme, on
the south side of the city, is not important for now.
By the time she
emerged 30 minutes later, she had been gang raped at least six times by
three different men. The trio, all aged 20, were jailed for a total of 29 years at Manchester
Crown Court this week. But six others were present when she was passed
around like a piece of meat. They regarded her as ‘easy prey,’ to quote
the judge. Those who did not violate her were spectators. They watched
and did nothing to help.
A group of Muslim men recently went into a Christian district in
Pakistan, abducted a 7-year-old boy, and took turns gang raping him
before finally strangling him to death with a rope. Locals found the
child’s body dumped in a field the next day:
[T]he body was sent for post-mortem examination which
revealed that the 7-year-old was killed after being brutally raped….
Speaking to The Express Tribune, a local said, “The suspects
belonged to rich families and were drunk when they kidnapped the child
and took him to their dera where they raped him.
Interestingly, while the NY Daily News, the Independent,
and other media state that the boy was seized from a “Christian
district,” the original report, published by one Kashif Zafar in the
International New York Times’ Express Tribune,
avoids mentioning the religious identity of either rapists or raped.
It even fails to mention that this atrocity took place in Pakistan and
merely names the region, Bahawalnagar, in both the title and body of the
report, though few have any clue what country Bahawalnagar is located
Perhaps the NYT’s Express Tribune does not want readers to connect
the dots and realize that “rich and drunk” Muslims regularly rape and
kill Christian “infidels” in Pakistan. One week after this 7-year-old
boy was gang raped and murdered, another group of reportedly “rich and
drunk” Muslims in a car accosted three Christian girls walking home from
They sexually harassed them, saying “Christian girls are only meant for one thing, the pleasure of Muslim men.”
When the girls tried to run away, the Muslims chased them down in their
car and ran them over, killing one girl, 17-year-old Kiran. Another Christian boy was kidnapped, raped, tortured and killed by a police officer, his body similarly being dumped in a drain.”…
“After the San Bernardino attacks,
everybody was saying, ‘If only Americans knew more about Islam, they
wouldn’t be so afraid.’ Actually, it’s the reverse.” — Bill Maher‘I have been commanded to fight…’
The condemnations of Christianity in the Koran (cited in Part 2)
have real-world implications, as can be seen in the 14 centuries of
Islamic jihad and aggression, and in the modern global phenomenon of
Muslim persecution of Christians.
As Raymond Ibrahim painstakingly
documents both in his book Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War Against Christians, and in his monthly series Muslim Persecution of Christians,
Islam’s jihad against Christianity spans centuries, geography, race and
language, and takes exactly the same form, whether in Nigeria, Sudan or
Egypt (Africa), or in Iraq, Syria, Iran or Lebanon (the Middle East),
or in Pakistan, Afghanistan and all the other ‘stans (Central Asia), or
in Southeast Asia, the Philippines, Indonesia, and so on.
Another reliable source, Open Doors, has just published their annual World Watch List
on persecution of Christians for 2015, noting that the persecution of
Christians in Muslim-majority countries, while horrific in 2014 and
prior years, actually doubled in 2015. Over 80% of the 50 worst nations
for persecution of Christians are Islamic nations or have large Muslim
Why is Muslim persecution of Christians so universal, and why has it been going on for 14 centuries? It certainly can’t be a retaliation for
the Crusades, as they post-date the creation of Islam by more than four
centuries, and were themselves a response against relentless Islamic
aggression. Read it all here................................
The best way to understand the Islamic State (ISIS) is to see it as the
next phase of al-Qaeda. All Sunni Islamic jihadi groups—Boko Haram,
ISIS, Taliban, al-Shabaab, al-Qaeda, even Hamas—share the same
motivations based on a literal and orthodox reading of Islamic history
and doctrine: resurrecting a caliphate (which existed in various forms
from 632 to 1924) that implements and spreads the totality of sharia, or Islamic law.
Accordingly, ISIS’s notorious atrocities—beheading, crucifixion,
sexual enslavement, and destruction of non-Sunni places of worship—are
being committed by other jihadi groups (e.g., Boko Haram and al-Shabaab,
both of which pledged allegiance to ISIS) and even by some Muslim
governments (e.g., Saudi Arabia) and individual Muslims around the
Conversely, although al-Qaeda (AQ) adheres to the same sharia
that ISIS implements, it has long waged a propaganda war against the
West. AQ portrays all terrorist attacks on the West, including 9/11, as
mere payback for the West’s unjust polices against Muslims, including
support for Israel and Arab dictators.
To maintain this “grievance” narrative, AQ knows that the innately supremacist and violent aspects of sharia—for
example ISIS’ destruction of churches and subjugation of “infidel”
Christian minorities—need to be curtailed or hidden from the Western
world. Otherwise AQ’s efforts of portraying jihadis as “freedom
fighters” resisting an oppressive West risk being undermined.
Regardless, AQ’s strategy of turning Western opinion appears to have
borne fruit in one pivotal area: canceling longtime Western support for
secular Arab dictators. In the context of the “Arab Spring,” the Obama
administration turned its back on America’s Egyptian ally of 30 years,
Hosni Mubarak; helped ISIS-affiliated jihadis overthrow Libya’s Gaddafi
(even though he was complying with Washington); and continues supporting
to overthrow Syria’s Assad. Idealists in both government and media
forgot a primary reason the U.S. had formerly supported secular Arab
dictators: they single-mindedly opposed the jihadis.
Most, if not all, of the presidential candidates participating in the two Fox News Channel debates on January 28 told us that as president of the United States they would destroy the Islamic State, ISIS.
They only differed somewhat in their operational concepts to achieve that end. Not one of them, however, discussed the overarching strategic question of the “What Next?” How would each prepare a strategy to deal with a Middle East featuring an ascendant Jihadist, terrorist, nuclear expansionist Shiia Iran?
Due to American success against ISIS, the mullahs would be unchallenged on the ground by significant Sunni forces.
To be fair to the candidates, the moderators never asked this all-important question. The Islamic State is a self-declared 7th Century Islamic Caliphate in the form of a 21st Century Islamist supremacist state.
We know the horrors its adherents are inflicting on Christians and other non-Muslim populations which fall into its grasp -- and on the many Muslims with a different interpretation of Islam from theirs. Together with the many other groups which are practitioners of the Worldwide Jihad, ISIS is inspiring home grown Jihadists in the United States, many of them American citizens, many of them converts to Islam.
Islamic Jihadist terrorism is growing in the West, including in the United States.
More and more Americans recognize that their current federal government has demonstrated no effective strategy to protect them from terrorist attacks here. They also recognize that our first responders, despite their best intentions, cannot respond quickly enough to save us from terrorist attacks. So Americans are buying guns to protect themselves and their families, and are learning how to use them. This is an individual, defense-only, strategy. Read it all here.............
Australian national suspected to be IS supporter deported from Delhi airport - a Malay-origin Australian youth, identified as Ahmad Fahim Bin Hamad Awang holding passport N2149807
In a first, India on Thursday deported an Australian national on “strong indications” that he was an Islamic State supporter.
The Indian Express has learnt
that a Malay-origin Australian youth, identified as Ahmad Fahim Bin
Hamad Awang holding passport N2149807, was detained for questioning on
Thursday night after he landed at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi
International Airport on a flight from Perth.
receiving a tip-off, officers from a central agency questioned Awang
and found jihadi literature, including Islamic State propaganda, on his
laptop, sources said. Photographs of him posing with firearms were also
found on the laptop, sources said.
“When he was questioned about the purpose of his visit to India,
Awang said he had to attend a meeting in Delhi’s Nizamuddin area, but
was evasive in his replies. He had managed to secure a valid visa.
However, after scouring through the contents of his laptop, a call was
taken that it was too dangerous to allow him to enter India, and he was
sent back to Perth,” said a source.
HIJRAH: Why Is Small Town America Being Flooded With Islamic “Refugees”?
Looks like my old stomping grounds in Montana are heating up.
People there are not taking Obama’s plan to force refugees on them lying down. There was a protest in Missoula, Montana at 10 a.m. this morning over that very issue.
It is just one of many battles brewing out there in small town America.
Bringing in the refugees

system so it will collapse and cause chaos in the streets.
want to tear the system apart, so they can replace it with something
truly heinous. The Obama administration will never admit that this is
the plan, but can you honestly look at what is going on today and tell
me it isn’t? Our borders are wide open. We are not vetting anyone to
speak of and security here in the US is worse than before 9/11.
in states such as Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Kansas are being
infused with Muslim refugees even though they are not wanted by the
residents or the local law enforcement. The feds and their leaders are
not giving them a choice.
Wyoming is the only state currently not
participating in the program, but even the governor there wants to jump
in it. Living in large cities would be too costly for the refugees and
more can be accomplished with seeding them across the plains. In a small
town, they can turn everything to their advantage in short order.
many of our larger cities are already flooded with immigrants from
south of the border and from Muslim nations, in many respects they have
at least partially fallen to the ploy already. This is the fundamental
transformation of America in play. South Carolina, Idaho, Minnesota,
North Dakota and Michigan are vigorously fighting against this program
and Obama’s ‘change’. Read it all here............
Egypt: Coptic Christian Tombs Turned into “Garbage Dumps”
As often happens to Christian cemeteries in Muslim nations — whether at the hands of “ISIS” or the hands of “angry youth” — “the tombs of the Copts [Egypt’s indigenous Christians] are being turned into garbage dumps.”
This was the urgent and recent message from Fr. Ayoub Yousef, who heads the Coptic Catholic church of St. George in the village of Dalga, in Minya, Upper Egypt. According to the priest, the local Coptic cemeteries are in a “piteous state,” as all forms of sewage and waste is being dumped into them to the point of filling the tombs.
The priest said that he had filed numerous complaints with the prime minister and many other officials “to no avail, to the point that the situation has become unacceptable.” He is urging for “immediate intervention.” From Raymond Ibrahim
According to Jihad Watch reader Gerald, Austrian media only reported
today about the case, three months after the incident, because the
police wanted to “protect the victim”; in reality, they just wanted to
hide another crime by an asylum seeker. German-language reports here and here.
“10-Year-Old Boy Brutally Raped By Iraqi Migrant at Pool in Vienna,” by Donna Rachel Edmunds, Breitbart, February 5, 2016 : An Iraqi migrant has admitted to raping a ten year old
boy in a Viennese swimming pool so ferociously that the boy had to be
hospitalised for his injuries.
The man said he knew it was wrong but
couldn’t help himself as he hadn’t had sex in months. Police investigators have ascertained that the 20 year old man
entered Austria on the 13th September, travelling into the country via
the Balkans. On the December 2nd he brutally attacked the young boy, pulling him
into a changing cubicle, pulling down his swimming trunks and assaulting
Although the boy cried out he was not heard by anyone, Kronen Zeitung has reported. Following the attack, the Iraqi amused himself by diving repeatedly
from the three metre board. The young boy, meanwhile, went to a
lifeguard in tears and told him what had happened. The police were
immediately called and were able to arrest the Iraqi on the spot, while
the boy was taken to hospital suffering from serious injuries.
Obama: Islamic State says they’re “holy warriors who speak for Islam. I refuse to give them legitimacy.”
What makes Obama think that the Islamic State is looking to him for
Where did he get the idea that any Muslim looks to any
non-Muslim to legitimize his understanding of Islam? The Qur’an calls
Muslims “the best of people” (3:110) and unbelievers “the most vile of
created beings” (98:6).
Does Obama think that if he refrains from
acknowledging the Islamic roots of jihad terrorism, that some young
Muslim who is considering joining the jihad will think again and turn
away? “Oh yes, I was going to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State
until I heard Obama say that they were un-Islamic.”
The idea that refusing them legitimacy is behind Obama’s refusal to
call them “Islamic terrorists” is just a dodge, and plays into the hands
of groups such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which
makes ongoing efforts to ensure that Westerners are unaware of how
jihadis use Islamic texts and teachings to justify what they do.From Obama’s speech Wednesday at the Islamic Society of Baltimore:
Rush Limbaugh on Obama: “Why did he choose to become a Christian?”
By his own account, Obama became a Christian in the early 1990s at
Jeremiah Wright’s church, after a period of spiritual searching and
But why? Rush Limbaugh is right: he has been markedly
critical of Christianity and has repeatedly and effusively praised
Islam. So why did he become a Christian at all?
This is aside from the widespread suspicion that he is or was a
Muslim, which is based as much on his statements and policies as
President as it is on the fact that his father and stepfather were
Muslims and that he says in his first autobiography that he got in
trouble as a child for making faces in Qur’an class, which Christian
children did not attend.
Whether or not one thinks he was ever a Muslim,
the question Rush raises is intriguing — if he wasn’t one, and he loves
Islam so much, why didn’t he become one? Was it just for political
gain? “‘I’m Just Asking a Question’: Rush Limbaugh Reveals What He’s ‘Always Wondered’ About Obama,” by Oliver Darcy, The Blaze, February 4, 2016:
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh asked aloud on
his radio program Thursday why President Barack Obama made the choice to
become a Christian. Limbaugh, referencing the president’s recent trip to a Baltimore
mosque this week, argued Obama is “constantly talking [Islam] up.” “President Obama is routinely defending it, talking it up, promoting
it, Limbaugh contended, according to an online transcript posted to his
Obama to Christians: “If we’re serious about freedom of religion…an attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths”
One of the most pernicious and least-remarked aspects of Obama’s
speech at the Baltimore mosque Wednesday was that throughout it, he
assumed that the religious freedom of Muslims was under attack in the
It is not. Obama is conflating legitimate concern about
terrorism with attempts to infringe the First Amendment. He is taking a
page from the playbook of groups such as the Hamas-linked Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which for years have consigned
counter-terror efforts to the realm of “bigotry” and claimed that
measures designed to stop the encroachment in the U.S. of Sharia
provisions that contradicted the Constitution were attempts to limit
Muslims’ religious freedom.
The freedom of religion does not relieve one
of the obligation to follow the other laws of the land. It is not a
license to commit sedition or subversion in favor of an authoritarian
political system. Muslims are perfectly free to practice their religion
in the U.S., but the elements of Sharia that contradict the Constitution
— jihad violence to defeat and subjugate people of other religions, the
denial of the freedom of speech, the institutionalized inequality of
women and non-Muslims, etc. — should not be welcome here, and Muslims
who genuinely accept and respect the Constitution should have no problem
No one would have any negative feelings about Islam at all, and there
would be no “Islamophobia” or “anti-Muslim bigotry,” were it not for
the reality of jihad terrorism. As Jefferson said, if my neighbor has
one god or twenty, it neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. All the
nonsense Obama and the Islamic Society of Baltimore purveyed on
Wednesday about Muslims being made to feel as if they were second-class
citizens and not fully American would be solved in a trice if Muslims in
America would tackle the problem of jihad terrorism honestly and
actively combat the spread of the understanding of Islam represented by
al-Qaeda and the Islamic State within their communities.
Notice there is
no Hinduphobia or Buddhophobia in the U.S.: this is not about religious
freedom or racial or religious bigotry. It’s about national security. Young Sabah Muktar, introducing Obama, said: “In these uncertain times, some of us might find ourselves doubting where we fit in this society. Personally, this visit by our president is an affirmation to all Muslims we are just as American as any other.
It’s a gesture that invites inclusiveness of all faiths and color.” If Muslims would stop screaming “Allahu akbar” and killing people, and if peaceful Muslims would stop whining about being victims over counter-terror measures and start fighting against jihad terror themselves, they would find Americans to be much more inclusive.
Pakistan: Muslims waving pistols storm Hindu temple, desecrate idol of Hindu deity
“We don’t know who those men were. We have never seen them before. We
are very saddened by the incident. It has really terrorised the
neighbourhood.” “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of
steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy
and others besides them whom you do not know whom Allah knows.” (Qur’an
8:60). “Panic grips Pakistani Hindus after temple is desecrated in Karachi,” PTI, February 3, 2016:
Karachi: Three pistol-waving bearded men stormed a
60-year-old temple in Pakistan’s largest city and desecrated the idol of
a Hindu deity, leading to fear among the minority community here, a
media report said on Tuesday.
The incident happened on January 21 when the three men clad in salwar
and kameez stormed the temple waving pistols and ordered everyone
inside the premises to step out. The panic and scuffle that followed resulted in desecration of one of
the three beautifully-decorated idols at the temple near the Karachi
Zoological Gardens, Dawn reported.
“The people are afraid of coming here for puja now after the attack,” said Maharaj Hira Lal. Other than the Maharaj and his family, the caretakers of this temple, nobody else was present when the scuffle broke.
“We don’t know who those men were. We have never seen them before,”
the Maharaj said. “We are very saddened by the incident. It has really
terrorised the neighbourhood,” he said. The temple has three idols of deities Shitala Mata, Santoshi Mata and Bhavani Mata. Maharaj said the temple was built as a place for worship by his
grandfather soon after he moved to Pakistan from India some 60 years
Germany: Children’s carnival in Herne canceled after Muslims send threatening letter to “infidels”
More of the glories of the New Multicultural Europe. This report is in rather broken English, but is clear enough: “No children’s carnival Herne after threatening letter,” Hot Recent News, February 5, 2016 :
HERNE – A carnival for children in West Germany Herne was
canceled after receipt of item with a threatening, anti-German content.
In consultation with the intelligence the Volkshaus Röhlinghausen
decided not to proceed party announced for Sunday, police reported
The Volkshaus had in his mailbox newspaper reports about Epiphany
singers found who were fitted with German and Arabic slogans as infidels
and Germany kills all Muslims . A direct threat is not raised, said
Volkshaus employee Rüdiger Pfeifer according to local newspaper
Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, but objections were simply too big .
For seven years now, the president has reprimanded the American
people for their attitudes about Islam.
And Barack Obama’s big speech to
the Islamic Society of Baltimore — granted, filled with many harmless
platitudes — was no different, leaving little room for any honest
dialogue about ideology or faith.
Many of the president’s ideas about
“tolerance,” in fact, are antithetical to the American experience, and
not something to celebrate.
Acceptance of outsiders is an American virtue, yes. Do we have to
embrace all ideas, as well? Obama has conflated tolerance of individuals
and groups with tolerance of a select belief system — one that he
demands be immune from criticism.
We certainly don’t want people attacking peaceful Muslims, but it’s
irresponsible and intellectually obtuse to act as if the pervasive
violence, misogyny, homophobia, child abuse, tyranny, anti-Semitism,
bigotry against Christians, etc. that exist in large parts of Islamic
society abroad has absolutely nothing to do with faith.
This week, Obama spoke about the evils of Islamophobia to a group that
featured women covered, subordinated, and segregated from men. I’m happy
he’s open-minded about that sort of thing. Americans are free to
practice their faith in any way they choose. But I’m not sure why all of
us should feel obligated to celebrate this kind of narrow-mindedness.
You will remember how offended liberals get when presidential candidates
visit Bob Jones University or Mormons fund campaigns they find
objectionable. Why is this different? Take this CNN headline: “Obama rebuts anti-Muslim rhetoric in first U.S. mosque visit.” What does it mean? In the piece, we learn that the president reacted to “young Muslim parents whose children are worried about being removed from the country.”
I know of no Republican candidate — or anyone of note on the right, or anywhere else for that matter — who has ever suggested any policy resembling this. Not even Donald Trump. A president who wanted to bring people together would have dismissed this as a preposterous idea. He would have explained that no one in American politics is plotting to kick Muslims out of the country.
He could have pointed out that in the United States, these children will enjoy more religious freedom than any Islamic nation offers, and be free of virtually any religious or factional violence — but that in this country, people still have the freedom to be critical of one another’s beliefs and even denounce them. This freedom is a lot more useful than dangerous notions about “tolerance.”
Obama had Georgetown U cover “JESUS” but didn’t have Baltimore mosque cover “ALLAH”
It was three and a half years ago: Obama asked Georgetown University to

first three letters of the name Jesus in Greek, while he was speaking
But yesterday Obama stood without hesitation under the Arabic for
Allah at the Islamic Society of Baltimore. “Georgetown Says It Covered Over Name Of Jesus To Comply With White House Request,” CNS News, May 7, 2012:
(CNSNews.com) – Georgetown University says it covered
over the monogram “IHS”–symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ—because it
was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at
the university on Tuesday and the White House had asked Georgetown to
cover up all signs and symbols there.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the “IHS” monogram that had previously
adorned the stage at Georgetown’s Gaston Hall was still covered up–when
the pediment where it had appeared was photographed by CNSNews.com.
Obama at Muslim Brotherhood-linked mosque: “Islam has always been part of America”
In FrontPage today I discuss the remarkable falsehoods Barack Obama purveyed at the Islamic Society of Baltimore yesterday.
"When Barack Obama visited the Muslim Brotherhood-linked
Islamic Society of Baltimore on Wednesday, he said: “The first thing I
want to say is two words that Muslim Americans don’t hear often enough:
While Obama has been President, Muslims have murdered non-Muslims,
avowedly in the cause of Islam, at Fort Hood, Boston, Chattanooga, and
San Bernardino, and attempted to do so in many, many other places.
Imagine if armed Baptists screaming “Jesus is Lord” had committed
murder, and explained that they were doing so in order to advance
Christianity, in four American cities, and had attempted to do so in
Imagine that those killers were supporters of a global
Christian movement that had repeatedly called for attacks on U.S.
civilians and declared its determination to destroy the United States. Imagine how incongruous it would be in that case for the President of
the United States to visit a church and say:
“The first thing I want to
say is two words that Christian Americans don’t hear often enough:
Thank you.” And imagine how unlikely it would be that Barack Obama would
ever have done that. But his visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore was the apotheosis
of the Muslim victimhood myth, as he signaled yet again to the world
(and worldwide jihadis) that in the U.S., Muslims are victims, victims
of unwarranted concern over jihad terror, and thus that concern is
likely to lessen even more, as Obama dismantles still more of our

His decision to shun that Fox News debate, just four days before the caucuses, would be seen as a tactical masterstroke. Looking at his poll lead ahead of the New Hampshire primary next week, journalists would be saying that he had effectively secured the Republican party nomination.
He didn’t win, though. He came second, almost third, and now the
narrative about the Trump phenomenon can be turned upside down. Trump’s
refusal to abide by the established rules of campaigning was foolhardy.
Ducking the debate was a big mistake.
The victory of Ted Cruz, the
conservative ‘grassroots’ candidate, proved the enduring power of
organised politics. And the late surge for Marco Rubio — who surprised
everyone by finishing just 1 per cent behind Trump — showed that,
despite all the disgruntlement among Republican voters, the party
establishment can still come out on top.
Trump’s barmy rebellion now
looks ready to collapse, and people will ask if the celebrity
businessman was ever that serious about becoming president. Before dismissing Trump’s candidacy, however, it’s worth examining what he has achieved.
He won 24 per cent of the vote (against Cruz’s 28 per cent and Rubio’s 23 per cent) in Iowa, a state in which, until a few weeks ago, nobody thought he had a chance. Trump has rather sweetly spent almost $500,000 on ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball hats. He appears to have spent almost nothing on boring but important activities such as canvassing or researching voter preferences, however.
He has given his campaign about two-thirds of its $19 million funds (‘It’s not worth it!’ he tweeted this week), but that sum looks piddling compared with the $47 million raised by Cruz or the $112 million behind Hillary Clinton. Still, through the sheer force of his personality, and his media shock value, he almost pulled off a ridiculous victory.Read it all here...................
