Some of the shifts in the political landscape today: Links 2, May 6, 2019

1. URGENT PRAYER: 25 Christians in Nigeria killed by Boko Haram in door-to-door attacks

They came at night. And they came with death on their minds. On Monday, April 29, around 8 pm, Boko Haram fighters invaded the Christian community of Kuda near Madagali in Adamawa State in northeastern Nigeria. The terrorists surrounded the community and went door to door, killing as many as 25 people.


The next day, they returned.

As security agents and community members prepared for the burials of their loved ones, Boko Haram members were spotted approaching for a second attack on the grieving community. As a result, funeral preparations were abandoned as bereaved believers, those from neighboring communities and security agents fled.


Since the attack, many more villagers have fled the town. Christian leaders in the area told Open Doors, “We are in danger, we have no one to fight for us to end this killing of our people.”

2. Sri Lanka Expels 200 Islamic Clerics After Easter Attacks


Sri Lanka has expelled over 600 foreign nationals, including around 200 Islamic clerics, since the Easter suicide bombings blamed on a local terror group, a minister told AFP Sunday.


Home Affairs Minister Vajira Abeywardena said the clerics had entered the country legally, but amid a security crackdown after the attacks were found to have overstayed their visas, for which fines were imposed and they were expelled from the island.


“Considering the current situation in the country, we have reviewed the visas system and took a decision to tighten visa restrictions for religious teachers,” Abeywardena said.

“Out of those who were sent out, about 200 were Islamic preachers.”


The Easter Sunday bombings that killed 257 people and wounded nearly 500 were led by a local cleric who is known to have travelled to India and had made contact with terrorists there.

3. IDF has a message for terror groups in Gaza. (And its a pretty matter of fact one at that)

4. Dinesh D’souza on the regulating away of all non-leftist voices.

5. Kuwait to jail those who eat in public during Ramadan

(Should have let Saddam have them)

Kuwait City: People eating in public during the days of the Muslim fasting of Ramadan in Kuwait risk jailing and a fine, a security official was quoted as saying on Monday.


In Ramadan, Muslims have to abstain from eating, drinking and smoking from dawn to sunset.

According to the Kuwaiti law, fast-breaking in public during this period is an offence punishable by a maximum one month in prison or a fine of 100 dinars, acting head of public relations at the Interior Ministry, Brig. Tawheed Al Kandari said, according to Al Anba newspaper.


The law applies to Muslims and non-Muslims.

“Citizens and expats have to observe values, traditions and respect feelings of the fasters,” he added.

Oil-rich Kuwait is home to a large community of foreign workers.


Brig. Al Kandari also vowed a crackdown on beggars during the holy month in residential areas and marketplaces as well as outside mosques.

(So, I guess the whole thing about charity during Ramadan is a bunch of bollox as well then)

6. The Left Is Desperate To Get The Narrative Back

7. Trump pardons ex-U.S. soldier who killed Iraqi prisoner

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has pardoned a former U.S. soldier convicted in 2009 of killing an Iraqi prisoner, the White House announced Monday.


Trump signed an executive grant of clemency, a full pardon, for former Army 1st Lt. Michael Behenna, of Oklahoma, press secretary Sarah Sanders said.


Behenna was convicted of unpremeditated murder in a combat zone after killing a suspected al-Qaida terrorist in Iraq. He was paroled in 2014 and had been scheduled to remain on parole until 2024.


A military court had sentenced Behenna to 25 years in prison. However, the Army’s highest appellate court noted concern about how the trial court had handled Behenna’s claim of self-defense, Sanders said. The Army Clemency and Parole Board also reduced his sentence to 15 years and paroled him as soon as he was eligible.


Behenna’s case attracted broad support from the military, Oklahoma elected officials and the public, Sanders said. She added that Behenna was a model prisoner while serving his sentence, and “in light of these facts, Mr. Behenna is entirely deserving” of the pardon.

    Ramadan begins and ends with the crescent moon, the Islamic month of skipping breakfast and lunch, gorging supper, and killing people.
    Getting caught eating anything during the day or even drinking water (In the DESERT no less!) will get you severely punished… Oh BTW this also applies to NON-Muslims too!
    Can you imagine the harm done to a developing fetus during Ramadan? Pregnant women are NOT exempt!
    Many more, and more violent attacks on non-muslims occur during Ramadan than during the rest of the year.
    “Ramadan” is a daily “Fast” that lasts from sunup until sundown for an entire month to show “Empathy” for the world’s hungry (Moslem ONLY!) people. Then, after sundown, they engage in a “Thanksgiving-like gorge Fest” EVERY night for the entire month!

    Actually, it should not be called the FAST of Ramadan but DAILY FEAST of Ramadan for 40 days!

    As huge quantities and large varieties of sumptuous fried meat dishes, a variety of rice preparations & different kinds of breads are cooked/made from dawn to dusk & consumed immediately, after sunset. In addition large quantities of fresh fruits & dry fruits; large quantities & varieties of sweets & soft drinks are also consumed. According to Islamic Law, eating can go on from sunset to sunrise!

    The normal human eating pattern is eating during daytime and fasting during night!
    Muslims have just reversed it and call a “fast”!

    Consequently, many muslims actually GAIN weight during the “FAST” of Ramadan, because of the after sunset partying and gorging!

    How is this “Showing empathy” for hungry people?
    Then, especially after Friday Evening Prayers they go out in mass to kill all those who do not believe as they do.

    Christian believers and everyone else, who do not participate in Ramadan are subject to harassment, discrimination, and murder. As last year’s bus attack on Christians reminds us—during this month Islamic extremists can be more overt in their attacks against the Church and individual believers.
    BTW: Calling it “Ram-A-Van” would be more fitting!

    This is the nature of orthodox Islam: It imposes its religious standards on non-Moslems, which makes those religious standards fall into the category of a political ideology.
    Yet countries go out of their way to accommodate them for fear of not being tolerant.
    Yet Christianity supposedly is the one that gets blamed for imposing (forces) its beliefs on non-believers?

    What else would you expect from the Devil’s favorite “religion”?
    Islam really is the religion of peace. Because once you get rid of it, you will know peace.

  2. Imagine what a Palestinian state occupying present day Israel would be like. First the turf wars between Fateh, Hamas, Hizbullah and the rest. Would they ever agree on who ruled where? One common factor would be the extermination of Jews, then they would start on the other minorities. They would indulge a bloodlust as bad as that of ISIS.
