“My hands are tied,” judge sentences convicted terrorist Amor Ftouhi to life in prison for Bishop stabbing
PORT HURON, Mich. (WXYZ) — Fifty-one-year old Amor Ftouhi will spend the rest of his life in prison. Federal Judge Matthew Leitman imposed the sentence in Flint after hearing Ftouhi say he regrets he didn’t kill the cop, regrets he didn’t kill people, and regrets he couldn’t get a machine gun.
Ftouhi was convicted in the June 2017 attack at Flint’s Bishop Airport. Police Lt. Jeff Neville was approached from behind and his throat slit with a knife.
Mere days after the United States Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO, an Islamist umbrella coalition), descended upon Capitol Hill for National Muslim Advocacy Day, one of USCMO’s founding groups, the virulently anti-Semitic American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), returned to lobby Congress yet again. AMP and its partner organization, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), claim to be motivated by universal human rights, but the truth is more alarming; as a recent court case has made clear, AMP is the direct successor organization to the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was sued into oblivion for being a propaganda front for the terrorist group Hamas.
“What has changed my mind about immigration now—even legal immigration—is that our culture has weakened to the point where it’s no longer attractive enough for people to want to assimilate to, and we don’t insist that they do assimilate. When I was a kid, I lived in a neighborhood that had immigrant Jews, immigrant Italians (mainly from Sicily), and immigrant blacks—that is, they had come up from the South recently. It was incidentally one of the things that made me a lifelong skeptic about integration because far from understanding each other and getting to know each other, all we did was fight.”
Yuma, Arizona, Mayor Doug Nicholls issued a proclamation of emergency in the border city, saying the continued mass release of migrants directly into the community had become an “imminent threat” to life and property in the area.
If a politician of Japanese extraction were addressing a “largely Japanese-American audience” and characterized the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor as “some people did something,” would you think that those words diminished the loss of life and of property suffered by our country 78 years ago in the Pacific Ocean? I would, but apparently Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) would not.
And Pol Pot was very concerned with vision care for people!
The European Union and Canada on Wednesday condemned the US over the decision to apply extraterritorial Cuba-related sanctions as they say such measure violates international law.
“The decision by the United States to renege on its long-standing commitment to waive Title III of the Helms-Burton (LIBERTAD) Act is regrettable, and will have an important impact on legitimate EU and Canadian economic operators in Cuba,” EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland and EU Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmstrom said in a joint statement on Wednesday.
“The EU and Canada consider the extraterritorial application of unilateral Cuba-related measures contrary to international law.”
Hundreds of asylum seekers surrendered to an armed militia of New Mexico citizens last night, after trying to cross the U.S. border.
A group of 300 men, women and children gave themselves up to the ‘United Constitutional Patriots’, a gang of vigilantes who claim to be made up of veterans and former police officers, who then handed them over to border officials.
On Tuesday morning, the Nation of Islam’s research group defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has come under fire for her comments minimizing the tragedy of the 9/11 terror attacks. The Nation of Islam Research Group, an arm of the Nation of Islam led by notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, tweeted a video in which Farrakhan claims the George W. Bush administration orchestrated the 9/11 attacks.
‘It has to stop,” says Representative Ilhan Omar.
No, it does not.
Representative Omar, the Jew-hating Minnesota Democrat, is engaged in one of her usual games of misdirection, a pattern of hers that by now is familiar enough to be predicted: She says something outrageously stupid, offensive, anti-Semitic — or all three at once — and then attempts to parry the thrust of inevitable criticism by characterizing it as an attack on Muslims, women, women of color, Muslim women of color, etc.
On April 1st and 2nd, the United States Coalition of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) descended on Congress for its fifth annual National Muslim Advocacy Day. USCMO is a national umbrella group for a veritable Who’s Who of Islamist organizations such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim-American Society (MAS), American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), and the Muslim-Brotherhood think tank International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). USCMO describes its mission as facilitating communication and coordination between all these groups, “to create and sustain an urgent, collective sense of direction.”
…Evidence described in the complaint shows how Newton teachers teach that Jews and Christians deliberately forged their holy texts to contradict the Muslim Qur’an; that Zionism has “little connection” to Jewish history in “Palestine;” that the Jews took advantage of the Holocaust to gain sympathy for Zionism at the expense of “Arab plight;” and that the Israelis treat the Palestinians like the Nazis treated the Jews. After being taught all this, students are asked to debate whether there should be a one- or two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Sanctuary cities across the United States are responding to President Donald Trump’s threat to bus border crossers and illegal aliens to their jurisdictions, saying they plan to welcome all illegal immigration with “open arms” despite soaring homelessness problems.
US President Donald Trump has doubled down on his heated criticism of Democrat Ilhan Omar, accusing the congresswoman of anti-Semitism and claiming “she is out of control.”
Twitter erupted on Friday after Trump tweeted a video showing scenes of the 9/11 terrorist attacks intercut with a quote from Omar. Addressing the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) earlier this month, Omar commented about the stigma towards American Muslims in the wake of 9/11. However the video Trump shared took just one sentence from her speech, saying that “some people did something” on 9/11.
The U.S.-Mexican border is essentially wide open.
Why? Because there is a general expectation in Mexico and Latin America that American immigration law is unenforced. Or it is so bizarre that simple illegal entry almost always ensures temporary legal residence, pending an asylum hearing.
A scheduled asylum hearing, in turn, is seen by border crossers as a mere formality to be ignored. The popular perception on the border, then, is to stick one foot illegally onto U.S. soil, and, presto, win permanent residence for you and any family members who wish to follow.
‘…In due course, the dilemma of political homelessness will split the American Jewish community into three quarrelling pieces: loud but relatively small numbers of leftist, anti-Zionist secular Jews who will fawn like Hannah Arendt’s parvenus over Democrats who openly loathe Israel and indulge in anti-Semitic tropes; even smaller numbers of right-oriented Jews, many religious but many not, who will essentially beg or try to bribe the Republicans for their favor; and a far larger clot of confused Jews who will either become fuzzily apolitical or, perhaps, seek out third-party alternatives that may be waiting in the wings.”
I’m a bit taken aback by the author’s assertion that Jews will never feel at home in what he calls the “White-populist GOP”.
Like they say, some people can’t take yes for an answer. h/t Waffle
