From 1 min. 20 seconds on you get the usual islamic behaviour with a sort of Indian flavor to it. Another article with the explanation/apology
2. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper makes surprise visit to Iraq to increase aid to assist in the war against the Islamic State and defend Western values.
(CTV news piece on it is actually a speculative oped worthy of a first year high school paper. Watch the video and listen to the assumptions and accusations)
Several hundred Yazidi captives have been killed in Iraq by Islamic State (IS) militants west of Mosul, Yazidi and Iraqi officials say.
A statement from the Yazidi Progress Party said 300 captives were killed on Friday in the Tal Afar district near the city.
Iraqi Vice-President Osama al-Nujaifi described the reported deaths as “horrific and barbaric”.
Thousands of members of the religious minority group were captured last year.
4. Montreal enjoyed a day of the kind of peace communists bring to a city on May 1
(I’m not exactly sure how this is an improvement on the kind of communism we already have in Canada and especially in Quebec but there you have it)
5. Tundra Tabloids excerpted one call he liked from the Lowell Green show last week.
6. Bill Whittle busts another lefty using phony victim politics for profit
The threats are connected to the Lag BaOmer Jewish festival, which will be celebrated on May 7, Netanyahu’s statement said.
It urged Jews not to visit Tunisia during the festival.
Thousands of pilgrims visit the tombs of famous rabbis for Lag BaOmer, including on Tunisia’s holiday island of Djerba, where one of the last Jewish communities in the Arab world still lives.
Several thousand Jews from France and Israel make the trip to the island every year, where 19 people died in an attack on the ancient El Ghriba synagogue in 2002 blamed on Al-Qaeda.
The Israeli Counter-Terrorism Bureau said it was advising people against visiting Tunisia in view of the “threats”.
(There is comfort in the denial of this threat from the Tunisian government. The threat being real or not, the fact that the government feels its a bad thing is better than one might expect from them)
8. One of the translators of the 26 minute debate on immigration with Geert Wilders at the Parliament of the Netherlands wrote an accompanying article.
The matter has attracted international attention. However, Osam will not let himself be intimidated by ISIS: “These cowards will not stop me. Freedom of thought and expression is a human right. “, he says.
10. To get a clearer image of current US immigration policies, who is desirable and who is being refused admission, have a look at this Iraqi nun who is being refused a visa for a spacing engagement for fear she will claim refugee status.
The single delegate whose visitor visa was denied happens to be the group’s only Christian from Iraq.
Sister Diana Momeka of the Dominican Sisters of Saint Catherine of Siena was informed on Tuesday by the U.S. consulate in Erbil that her non-immigrant-visa application has been rejected.
Ms. Shea talked to Sister Diana on the phone and discovered that a consular officer named Christopher Patch gave this as the reason for her rejection: our Muddled East State desk (or their superiors) had decided she was an “Internally Displaced Person” and therefore a visit from Sister Diana would be a risky business for us because she’d claim refugee status once she got here. Sure she would, and would likely try to join the thousands of Christians swarming in?
The sun was peeking through the clouds on Saturday, April 25 at Victor Steinbreuck Park in downtown Seattle, where a crowd gathered to celebrate the first ever Islamophobia Awareness Day.
The event was created by a group of Muslim girls from Rainier Beach High School.
They were motivated by what they see as misconceptions surrounding their religion and especially the way Muslims are portrayed in the media. That’s why they opened up a safe space to talk about Islam, and answer questions from the public.
Thank you M., Richard, DP111, Ox AO., Maria J., Tasha C., and all who sent in links today.
The Islamophobia meme, manufactured by the OIC as a tactic mirroring the success of the ‘homophobia’ one various homosexual lobbies created is quite stunning. It relies on the idea that people can be at least briefly distracted into thinking that people’s revulsion at seeing a woman in full islamic face cloth is an irrational and racist hated of the cloth itself, and not the ideology and history and detestation of non-muslims and supremacy that this cloth is in fact a uniform for. Much like when Mrs. Obama whispered to the president during a 911 ceremony that all the Americans there were idiots for showing respect to a piece of cloth. Like a true post modernist she wasn’t capable of realizing that most of us can abstract a symbol to its meaning. The flag, being a totem for the freedom so many people lost their lives to defend.
Imagine walking down a street this week in Baltimore in a KKK set of sheets complete with the pointy hood and after you get the crap kicked out of you, going on TV and claiming the coloured folk in Maryland are all Klanophobic. That they are racist against people who wear pointy sheets. And yet this argument gets made daily by the leftist apologists for islam.
The clothing that identifies people as religious muslims mean they believe in an ideology which is antithetical to liberal democracy. To equality for all before the law, and even the basic right to criticize and hold accountable religious or political authority, when it is authority by islam. To hold those in contempt simply shows good judgement.
