(One error. In the video I posted last night of the Copenhagen demos, one of the clips I edited in was from the same demo a week before. While many of the same tactics were used by the far left extremist group last night, and I will post the correct video soon, one of the short clips from the other side in the one I did edit was from the week before. My error entirely. In Danish news its sometimes difficult to see the dates on pages and clips.
1. China orders Muslim shopkeepers to sell alcohol, cigarettes, to ‘weaken’ Islam
(What about sweet & Sour Pork? Did they skip the obvious?)
Chinese authorities have ordered Muslim shopkeepers and restaurant owners in a village in its troubled Xinjiang region to sell alcohol and cigarettes, and promote them in “eye-catching displays,” in an attempt to undermine Islam’s hold on local residents, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported. Establishments that failed to comply were threatened with closure and their owners with prosecution.
Facing widespread discontent over its repressive rule in the mainly Muslim province of Xinjiang, and mounting violence in the past two years, China has launched a series of “strike hard” campaigns to weaken the hold of Islam in the western region. Government employees and children have been barred from attending mosques or observing the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. In many places, women have been barred from wearing face-covering veils, and men discouraged from growing long beards.
In the village of Aktash in southern Xinjiang, Communist Party official Adil Sulayman, told RFA that many local shopkeepers had stopped selling alcohol and cigarettes from 2012 “because they fear public scorn,” while many locals had decided to abstain from drinking and smoking.
[…] Sulayman said around 60 shops and restaurants in the area had complied with the government order, and there were no reports of protests. But in an unrelated incident in neighboring Qinghai province on Friday, an angry crowd of Muslims smashed windows of a supposedly halal store in Xining city, after pork sausages and ham were found in a delivery van, according to the local government and photographs on social media.
2. IS claims Texas shooting, first attack on US soil
“Two of the soldiers of the caliphate executed an attack on an art exhibit in Garland, Texas, and this exhibit was portraying negative pictures of the Prophet Mohammed,” the jihadist group said.
“We tell America that what is coming will be even bigger and more bitter, and that you will see the soldiers of the Islamic State do terrible things,” the group announced.
It marked the first time the extremist group, which has captured swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq, claimed to have carried out an attack in the US.
3. Megyn elly does a great job explaining why the MSM is so very wrong on the popular angle they are taking on the attack in Texas.
4. Dead terrorist was very devout, frequently challenged people about their own religious views
Thank you M., Don C., Richard and many more. Some interesting things to come shortly.
3 – she is right and he is wrong, they had the right and no one should try and stop them, you either support free speech of you support censorship.
Megyn Kelly is right, but Pamela Geller’s language is accurate (jihadis = savages) and Megyn’s is not (‘the prophet’ mohammed). But it has become so standard in the media I wonder if she is even aware of it.
Probably not, people tend to follow the speech patterns they hear all the time.
1. “Chinese authorities have ordered Muslim shopkeepers and restaurant owners in a village in its troubled Xinjiang region to sell alcohol and cigarettes, and promote them in “eye-catching displays,” ”
And Western Socialists are forcing shopkeepers to sell cigarettes in ‘non-eye catching displays’.
If you can collectively force a population and their businesses to go one way, how much easier is it then to force them to go in the other.
I second that.
There came a time when the Communists and Socialists came up to Jesus to test him and taking out two new pack of cigarettes asked him which authority demanding plain or exposed packaging was right. To the crowd Jesus turned and held them up saying, “to whom do you pay these taxes? Therefore I tell you give unto the government what is the government’s and to your conscience that is conscience”
They went away nashing their teeth plotting the next way to catch him.
