Writing in Alpha News, journalist Megan Olson draws attention to Islamist Watch research on the cozy relationship between politicians and anti-Semitic Islamists in Minnesota. Now, new information about the virulent anti-Semitism of leading Islamist activists in Minnesota has emerged.
Tariq Ramadan, grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, received €35,000 – roughly $39,290 – per month from the Qatar Foundation as a “consultant,” documents obtained by French journalists Christian Chesnot and Georges Malbrunot show, the Swiss newspaper Tribune de Genvereported. Ramadan received a further €19,000 from organizations such as the League of Muslims in Switzerland when he was arrested last year on rape charges.
Chesnot and Malbrunot detail this information in their book Qatar Papers – How the emirate finances Islam in France and Europe. Their work discloses Qatar’s central role in funding Muslim Brotherhood operations across Europe. They say they received the supporting documents on a USB stick sent by a whistleblower. It contained Qatar Charity bank records, internal emails and more. The charity, like Qatar Foundation, is run by Qatar’s ruling Al-Thani family.
A series of regressive acts in parts of the Islamic world in recent weeks shows how much hold a doctrinaire brand of Islam has on the minds of people. Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia and Brunei are caught in this fundamentalist storm.
There is a tinge of irony in all this. Saudi Arabia, which originally exported these medieval ideas, is adopting measures that point toward moderation, at least superficially. On the other hand, Indonesia and Brunei – thus far considered havens of Islamic moderation – have become increasingly fundamentalist in the last few years, leading to these measures.
Measuring life satisfaction is about as close to quantifying ‘happiness’ as we’ve been able to get thus far, and a German psychologist’s new study suggests that a feeling of ‘oneness’ predicts overall contentment.
“This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face. I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it,” the Minnesota Democrat wrote on her account. “My love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be in question. We are ALL Americans!”
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar described the September 11, 2001, terror attacks on the United States in a nonspecific way during a recent speech to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
Omar delivered the keynote speech at a fundraiser for CAIR in late March and urged Muslim Americans to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable.” In one part of her speech that surfaced on Twitter this week, Omar described the 9/11 attacks in a peculiar way.
Do Muslims and Jews have a “shared future” in the U.S. based on a shared past? For the past four years, two Wayne State University academics, Howard Lupovitch and Saeed Khan, have held an annual lecture series entitled “A Shared Future.” Lupovitch, who is Jewish, is associate professor of history and director of the Cohn-Haddow Center for Judaic studies; Khan, a Muslim, is a lecturer in several departments, including Near Eastern and Asian studies. The first of the three lectures in the series was recently held at the Muslim Unity Center in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
Sergeant Cesilia Valdovinos — who converted to Islam in 2016 — claims she was discriminated against when the commanding officer at her Colorado battalion ordered her to remove her hijab to verify if she was wearing her hair in a bun.
Psychologically, Islam has become part and parcel of our society and the American mind. In other words, Islam has managed to merge into Western culture as though it has always been here. Whose fault is that? Much of academia and many universities throughout the land are generously funded by Islamic governments and organizations to market a highly sanitized and distorted version of Islam to young and impressionable minds. Even at the primary school level, a hugely dishonest portrayal of Islam is included in books pupils are required to study.
The Christchurch massacre — in which dozens of innocents were slaughtered in cold blood because of their religion, as they were assembled to pray — was a despicable, indefensible act. The murderer, Brenton Tarrant, is a criminal. The manifesto text he left to justify his act is in no way a justification.
The reactions that followed were marked by legitimate indignation. Unfortunately, the attack was also used to launch a campaign both dangerous and treacherous.
A women’s rights activist in Iran has said it is ‘insulting’ for Western visitors to wear the hijab in an attempt at solidarity.
Masih Alinejad, who has spearheaded Iranian women’s struggle against the head covering, said female dignitaries from Europe had left her fellow campaigners ‘on their own’ by choosing to wear the hijab when they visited Iran.
Rejecting the argument that visitors should wear the hijab out of ‘respect for the culture of Iran’, she said they were ‘sending a message that men are more equal than women’.
It will be difficult for Western women who wore hijab on Hijab Day, at the Women’s March, or in NZ to watch this and not feel shame
In shockingly Orwellian fashion, Democrats in Minnesota want to create a statewide “Task Force on Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism” that would be stacked with people devoted to Islamic doctrines calling for more anti-Semitism.
Sheik Taqi Al-Din added that the entire world will be subject to the rule of Islam in one of three ways: people will either convert to Islam, be forced to pay the jizya poll tax, or be fought against for the sake of Allah.
It’s advice the politician appears to have adopted as her own strategy, as this appearance — a fund-raising event hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations — came just weeks after her comments sparked national controversy and exposed a generational divide within the Democratic party on its approach to Israel, the pro-Israel lobby The American Israel Public Affairs Committee and anti-Semitism.
