If anything could be said about America in the week following the election, it is that we are a deeply divided nation. Many streets in our cities have been filled with demonstrators holding signs such as “He’s Not My President”.
However, as with so much, the Jewish community in America is this, but in much sharper contrast. There are rabbis in the United States who have instructed their communities to “sit shiva because they are mourning for the loss of America”.
Islamic hate for Christians was on display throughout the month of August. Shortly after an 80-year-old Catholic priest in France was slaughtered by Muslims who stormed his church during mass, the 16-year-old Muslim son of an Islamic cleric living in Belgium made a video and posted it on social media. In the video, he appears walking along the main street of the Belgian city of Verviers during Ramadan while making prayers to Allah, which include: “Allah, kill the despicable Christians. Allah, kill each and every last one of them….” According to Immigration Minister Theo Francken:
“It’s obvious that his father, the imam, is promoting such ideas not just to fighters to join the battle in Syria, but also to his own children. The young man who appears in the video reflects the father’s views, and I understand and empathize with the great concern that city residents have over this.”

Zimdar’s subjective, unscientific list is being touted by liberal mainstream media to discredit conservative news outlets in a move to delegitimize, silence and censor conservative viewpoints.
Shockingly, mainstream media embraced and gave widespread credence to a list posted on Facebook by an obscure communications professor who has only been working at a small private college for 15 months.
An incident involving a monkey saw two tribes come to blows in Libya, leaving 16 people dead.
