The “Death to America” Crowd

We’ve all witnessed the recent drama of the pro-Palestinian, anti-Jewish protests on college campuses. A recent discovery at one of the protests speaks volumes about the whole movement.

In the tents of the anti-Israel, pro-Hamas protesters at NYU, the police who cleared out their den of dissent uncovered signs which said, “Death to Israel! Death to America!”

Surprise. Surprise.

People who care about America’s godly roots as a nation—yes, our Judeo-Christian roots—know how principles revealed in the Bible are linked to the American experiment in self-liberty under God.

In contrast to our nation’s founding are sentiments held by many young Americans today: “Death to Israel and Death to America.”

There is a sense in which Jews and Christians are tied together for freedom’s sake both in America and in the country of Israel.

I’ve interviewed Rabbi Daniel Lapin a few times for Christian television. He is the founder and head of the American Alliance of Jews and Christians.

He once told me, “No country in the last two thousand years has provided the same haven of tranquility and prosperity for Jews as had the United States of America. And, this is not in spite of Americans being Christian; it is because of it. You might say that America’s Bible belt is the Jewish community’s safety belt.”

And he added: “Jews need to understand that our safety and security in the United States is dependent upon the health and vitality of American Christianity.”

Therefore, says the rabbi, the very safety of Jews (and others) is put at risk when the Christian faith is undermined in America. That is certainly borne out more and more in the protests and the rise of anti-Semitic violence we see today.

Recently, as the executive director of Providence Forum, I had the privilege to participate in our ministry’s Faith and Freedom Tour in Philadelphia. Dr. Peter Lillback, the founder of Providence Forum, was our tour guide. Providence Forum is now a part of Coral Ridge Ministries, headed up by Dr. Robert J. Pacienza, our host for this memorable weekend.

At one of our stops, Dr. Lillback highlighted the old synagogue there. Because of the Christian attitude of that city’s founder, the Quaker minister and lawyer William Penn, people (including Jews) would be free to practice their religion in his settlement without harassment. A rarity in that day.

As Dr. Lillback noted in one of our videos how Penn cared deeply about conscience rights, and it showed in the colony and the city he created in America: “Philadelphia, named from the Bible, brotherly love, established on the Golden Rule, freedom of conscience to each other. That becomes, then, the model of America. When Thomas Jefferson and George Washington look at Philadelphia, they say that place has succeeded far better than Virginia that imposes religion on others. Their view of conscience, their view of freedom is extraordinary.”

One of the Jews who came to Philadelphia almost a century after Penn helped the American cause in pivotal ways, for which he should be remembered. Haym Salomon was a very successful Jewish investor, who fled Europe because of anti-Semitic persecution.

In his 2022 book, Rediscovering America: How the National Holidays Tell an Amazing Story About Who We Are, Scott Powell, a senior fellow with the Discovery Institute, writes: “Washington and the Continental Army were in fact perpetually short of financial resources. Fortunately, even before the Revolutionary War started there was a young Jewish lover of liberty being raised up, Haym Salomon.”

Thankfully, Scott Powell was able to attend our tour and to provide some information about Salomon, a man to whom America owes a debt of gratitude. Powell notes that Salomon was not only savvy and successful as a financier, but he had an “impeccable reputation of integrity.”  That was probably a key element of his success.

Powell notes in his book: “After the war, financial records sum up that Haym Salomon’s fundraising and personal lending provided over $650,000 [which would translate to a staggering amount of money in today’s dollars]…for Washington and the war effort.”

One interesting footnote about Haym Salomon is that the terrific actor Claude Rains played him in a short dramatic film made in 1939—entitled, “Sons of Liberty”—by the eminent Casablanca director Michael Curtiz.

The film may not hold up well today, but the man—Haym Salomon—deserves to be remembered by whole new generations of Americans.

America was built by the sacrifices of many Christians and some of their Jewish friends, like Haym Salomon, a man that modern Americans have almost completely forgotten.

So, we fast forward to today, and we see modern nihilist protesters with mottos like “Death to Israel! Death to America!” Truly, our nation is overripe in the need for a genuine spiritual revival.

POST ON X: Christopher Hitchens explains how we got here in 2024, in 2009

Why the U.S. Ignores Islam’s Threat & What to do about Iran?

Why the U.S. Ignores Islam’s Threat

Forget the left; they are already in cahoots with the Islamists, and they will assuredly be among the very first victims of Islam as soon as it assumes power. They both share an ideological milieu with an authoritarian mindset. Islam, with the help of the leftist media and the Democrat Party, has been using the US Constitution against the American people to advance their Islamic agenda.

The left has put America in a very precarious position by allying with America’s enemy. We are in a state of subversion, and most of us don’t even dare to name the enemy, which is Islam. It is no surprise. The so-called Democrat Party always allies itself with America’s hardcore enemies. It could be radical Muslims, illegal aliens, terrorists of all stripes, etc. For as long as they hate America, the Democrats consider them friends.

Many Americans are confused as to why Democrats back Islamic ideology, honor their holidays and customs, and promote them as “the religion of peace,” knowing full well that Islam is not a religion of peace. The answer is quite simple: The Democrat Party will do anything to stay in power. They stand with anyone who dislikes America and the Republican Party.

For those who wish to serve this great nation and hope to keep it on its course toward its glorious destiny, the left recoils. An unholy coalition has been placed by homicidal liberals with Islamists who wish to destroy our existing order of freedom and liberty.

When Democrats and their newfound allies don’t like what they hear, they resort to ridicule, accusations, and name-calling. In fact, they call everyone their favorite word, “racist” or Islamophobes. The Republican Party is not far behind on this issue. No one, not a single elected official in the US Congress, has dared to raise the Islam issue and speak about this extremely important topic that is eating America alive.

So far, nothing has phased our representatives to get serious about Islamic issues and their agenda.

Not even the 9/11 attacks, when a group of Muslims killed nearly 3,000 people, made them think twice about stopping Islam’s ideology. Not an Islamic extremist massacring forty-nine people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, not San Bernardino, CA, where 14 people were killed, not Major Nadal Hassan, a Muslim psychiatrist who gunned down thirteen unarmed soldiers and injured 30 others while yelling Allah-o-Akbar at Ft. Hood, TX. Not Muslim snipers killing three men and two women in separate attacks over 15 hours in Montgomery County, MD. Not even Islamic terrorists detonated a massive truck bomb under the World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring over 1,000 trying to collapse the towers in New York City, and six people died. Not when ten members of a local mosque phoned in a false alarm and then ambushed the responding officers, killing one, in New York City. Not when a Pakistani with Mujahedeen ties gunned down two CIA agents outside of their headquarters, killing them in Langley, VA. Not when a ‘devout Muslim’ staged a suicide attack on a recruiting center at a strip mall and a Naval Center, which left five dead, in Chattanooga, TN, had any effect on US officials. The list goes on, but you get the point.

What can these elected officials do? The least they can do is pass laws that protect American citizens. It’s that easy. They can ban Sharia law in all 50 states, but they won’t. As you can see, these are not isolated issues. As a representative republic, it is incumbent upon these officials to make sure their fellow citizens are safe. But, these officials are also victims of another form of ideology: political correctness. The executive and legislative branches must sit down together and find a solution to this crisis; otherwise, future generations will find themselves in a political and religious war that they have never seen.

In Islamdom, they can dish out insults to non-Muslims and arrest Christians, Bahia’s, or the Jews just for praying. They can confiscate their Holy books and toss them in the trash. They call Jews pigs and monkeys and spit on anyone who isn’t Muslim. But they go into frenzies of self-righteous outrage at the slightest criticism of their barbaric and highly dangerous beliefs.

They never need to challenge the existing political order in our country but can achieve all their goals without bothering or violating the Constitution of the U.S. because the Constitution guarantees complete government non-interference toward religions. Finally, and the most important element perhaps, is the extreme coziness and appeasement of U.S. officials towards Islam and Muslims, which will recklessly and unknowingly drag the entire country and her citizens into an everlasting Islamic inferno, an inferno like the Islamic Republic in occupied Iran and other Islamic terrorist countries.

Even if most Muslims seek to adopt an American lifestyle, a great many Muslims are dead-set on using violence to make America conform to their barbaric way of life. Islam is a cancer. Cancer cells are always few at the beginning, and if left unchecked, they keep multiplying, eventually devouring the non-cancerous organism.

What to do about Iran?

The most promising solution is in the free world’s united support of the Iranian opposition groups to the rule of the Mullahs.

There is no shortage of proposals regarding what to do about the present Iran conundrum. Some proposals are authored by experts such as Henry Kissinger, while others are put forward by a variety of lesser luminaries.

I am one of the lesser luminaries. I have been observing and worrying about my country of birth, Iran, ever since a gang of murderous Mullahs and their functionaries assumed power. To my infinite regret and the regret of millions of Iranians, the situation in Iran under the fascist rule of Mullahs is rapidly deteriorating in every respect.

The Iranians, historically among the most civilized and tolerant of mankind, are now viewed as the base recruits of a primitive seventh-century barbaric campaign of Islamofascism. Iran, under the stranglehold and machinations of the Mullahs, has been transformed, in less than four decades, to the lead perpetrator of all that is abhorrent to humanity.

The “Iran Problem” is now a world problem. The question is, what should we do about Iran?

Pivotal to the success of any solution is first the realization that Islam is a religion of death and misery. A few facts are presented below to support this assertion.

  • The Quran itself repeatedly glorifies death, killing, and dying for Islam. It promises the faithful infinite rewards for his Jihad in Allah’s paradise.
  • Nearly all Islamic holy days, particularly those of the Shiite sect, are observances and re-enactments associated with death.
  • The Palestinian territory is festooned with huge portraits of the “martyrs,” the suicide bombers that the rest of the world calls them for what they are.
  • Streets, parks, and all manners of public places in the Islamic Republic are named after “martyrs” of various sorts.
  • Sheikh Hasan Nasrullah, the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon and the pawn of Iran’s Mullahs, assured the world of Hezbollah’s victory over Israel by proudly announcing: “We will prevail because the Israelis want to live, and we relish death.

The litany of Islamic death-based beliefs and actions is long indeed. It is, therefore, understandable that Iran’s Mullahs are obsessed agents of death. Islam, the Mullahs’ and their fanatic followers’ system of belief, denigrates life and glorifies death. To these people, death is not death. It is martyrdom, a sure passage to the unimaginably magnificent eternal paradise promised in the Quran.

Under the rule of these adherents of death, everything in Iran is deteriorating and dying. Despite huge oil revenues, the per capita income of the Iranians is now about one-third of what it was before the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Every form of misery has also skyrocketed. Drug addiction, prostitution, and suicide have gone through the roof. The young and the educated continue deserting Iran and family, fleeing to the four corners of the earth in search of a decent life.

To make matters worse, the agents of death, the Mullahs, divert the sorely needed funds at home to sponsor and support adventurous Islamic trouble-making abroad. They supply weapons, provide funds, and train any and all takers who share their wanton campaign of terrorism anywhere in the world.

Dissatisfaction with the rule of the Mullahs is widespread. Students, traditionally the vanguard of political and social reform in Iran, continue their valiant struggle in the face of torture, imprisonment, and death. Labor unions, although tightly controlled, are in a constant state of rebellion against the inhumane treatment by the state. Ethnic and religious minorities suffering under ruthless Islamic injustice and Pogrom-like measures are ripe for mass eruption.

The lifeblood of Iran’s economy is oil and natural gas. The criminal neglect and squandering of these vital and irreplaceable resources hold a future of even more severe hardship for the Iranian people. Impartial expert studies show that Iran’s oil production, at the present rate of exploitation and absence of maintenance, will decline by nearly ten percent per year and will hit zero by 2024.

Corruption and mismanagement, combined with the huge allocation of resources to acquire nuclear weapons, are bound to burden the country’s badly ailing economy and will likely bury the Mullahs in the rubbles of their own making and grant them their death wish. Regrettably, these purveyors of death aim to hurt and kill many innocent people along the way to their inevitable looming graves.

Over the years, much of the world has been preoccupied with its own problems and showed little concern for the plight of the Iranian people until the Mullahs installed a firebrand Islamist, Ahmadinejad, as the President of the country. This man, called by many Iranians “The Monkey,” is was alarming the world by being in control of the Islamofascist train and throttling it full speed ahead for a cataclysmic collision. Former IRI President Ahmadinejad and the current mass murderer, Raisi and their gang are loading their guns and doing all they can to obtain the bomb to bring about the biggest and most dreadful death that would usher in the “Mahdi,” their savior-ruler of the world.

What can the world do is a huge question. Some advocate military solutions of various types, ranging from surgical bombings of Iran’s nuclear facilities to military occupation of its oil-producing regions along the Persian Gulf to a full occupation of the country. Each and every one of these trigger-happy solutions is doomed to failure since they will play directly into the hands of the Mullahs. Any military action against Iran will encounter Iranians’ fierce sense of national pride that would rally the people to support the regime. Military actions would compound the problem by creating a greater worldwide Islamic solidarity against the perceived “Crusaders-Zionists” conspiracy.

Some see the solution in negotiation with the Mullahs. These people are either naïve or dishonest. Mullahs’ negotiation is Islamic to the core. They take all, and you give all since you, according to the Islamic fiat, are not entitled to anything. One can see how Muslims negotiate even among themselves in places like Iraq, the Palestinian territory, Pakistan, and every other Islamic land.

The most promising solution is in the free world’s united support of the Iranian opposition groups to the rule of the Mullahs. The Iranian people themselves are fully capable and are determined to remove the cancer of Islamism from their country. The United States, Israel, and other democracies have a huge stake in the success of the Iranian people to rid themselves of Islamic tyranny.

As I have briefly outlined above, the Mullahs are highly vulnerable. A comprehensive political, moral, and economic measure by the United States and others offers the best chance of ending Mullah’s reign of terror and diffusing the existential threat they pose to the world. The Bible says, “From those who are much given, much is demanded.” Perhaps it is for this reason that the people of the United States of America are again called upon to make huge sacrifices to defeat another tyranny. It is important that this great nation stays the course and enlists its power in support of freedom-loving Iranians to topple the ruling Islamofascists who are bent on wreaking death and destruction in the world.

It is also important to keep in mind Albert Einstein’s warning, “The world is a dangerous place not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”

When it comes to doing something prudent, it is good to follow the advice of the ancient Persians: “The lion of the meadow of Mazandaran can be captured by no other than a Mazadarani warrior.” The best match for the ruthless Mullahs and their hired Islamic stormtroopers are the Iranian warriors themselves. The people of Iran themselves are the best solution for the present Iranian conundrum. The valiant Iranians need a bit of help. And the last thing they need is appeasing negotiators to give the Mullahs a new lease on life, an invasion by the Marines, or a shower of bombs from the sky.

More Than 1,600 Pro-Hamas Activists at 33 Schools Arrested Since Gaza Encampments Began

College campuses escalated their efforts to root out pro-Hamas occupations on Tuesday, with police arresting more than 430 people on nine different college campuses. Police have made more than 1,600 arrests in connection with the disruptive, illegal campus occupations since the first one began at Columbia University on April 19, according to an investigation by The Washington Stand. Disturbingly, some universities are beginning to cave to protestors’ demands to restore order to campus, even as campus protests become increasingly dominated by non-students.

The sheer number of campus protests and arrests can be a bit bewildering to keep track of them all. As of Wednesday, there were at least 1,641 arrests and counting at 33 colleges and universities in 23 states, with at least three more schools threatening to make arrests and more pro-Hamas encampments cropping up daily.

Since so much media coverage obscures this point, it bears repeating that universities have not called in police to arrest protestors simply for exercising their right to free speech, or even for the vile, anti-Semitic content of that speech. After asking law enforcement to intervene on two separate occasions, the University of Texas at Austin on Monday issued this representative statement: “Protests are allowed at the University of Texas. Since October and prior to April 24, no fewer than 13 pro-Palestinian free speech events were held on the UT campus, and four more demonstrations have been held since Thursday, largely without incident.”

No, protestors were arrested for deliberately breaking the rules: flouting curfews, setting up tents where no tents were allowed, intimidating other students and impeding their free access and education on campus, and defying orders from law enforcement. In some instances, protestors broke into campus buildings and then barricaded them against campus authorities, declaring that the buildings had been “liberated.” Thus, when protestors were arrested for trespassing, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest, they had no one to blame but themselves.

If anything, universities have been reluctant to arrest demonstrators, often waiting days before calling in police, repeatedly pleading with the lawless mob before authorizing arrests, and only arresting a fraction of those involved in the illegal encampments. Thus, the 40 incidents in which campus demonstrators have been arrested represent only the small fraction of anti-Semitic activity on college campuses that has been met by a law enforcement response. With that said, here is a timeline of campus arrests since April 19:

Friday, April 19:

  • 108 activists were arrested at Columbia University after erecting a pre-dawn tent encampment. Several were suspended. Several student organizers were briefly suspended, including Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) daughter. However, the encampment returned on April 21.

Monday, April 22:

  • 133 activists were arrested at New York University after a large group, including non-students, illegally crossed police barricades.
  • 48 activists were arrested at Yale University, where pro-Hamas demonstrators intimidated Jewish students and struck one in the eye. The activists resisted a lawful order to disperse.
  • Three activists were arrested at California State Polytechnic University at Humboldt (Cal Poly Humboldt) in a scuffle with police after protestors illegally occupied a campus academic building and barricaded it against police.

Tuesday, April 23:

  • Nine activists were arrested at the University of Minnesota when police cleared another encampment at the Minneapolis campus.
  • Two activists were arrested at the University of South Carolina for creating a disturbance after hours and then refusing a lawful order to disperse.

Wednesday, April 24:

  • 93 activists were arrested at the University of Southern California as police cleared an encampment there. Activists, including many who were not students, struggled against police, at one point surrounding a police vehicle until the police let someone they had arrested go free.
  • 57 activists were arrested at the University of Texas at Austin after they refused to disperse and attempted to unlawfully erect an encampment there. Nearly half (26) of those arrested were not affiliated with the university. The progressive local prosecutor subsequently dropped all charges against those arrested.

Thursday, April 25:

  • 108 activists were arrested at Emerson College in Boston when police cleared an illegal encampment.
  • 36 activists were arrested at Ohio State University when police cleared an illegal encampment. Only 16 of those arrested were students, while 20 were not affiliated with the university.
  • 33 activists were arrested at Indiana University at Bloomington when police cleared an illegal encampment.
  • 28 activists were arrested at Emory University in Atlanta when police cleared an illegal encampment.
  • Two activists were arrested at Princeton University when police arrived to clear an illegal encampment. After the police began making arrests, the rest of the occupiers voluntarily packed up their tents to avoid arrest.
  • One activist, a grad student, was arrested at the University of Connecticut for assaulting an officer who was attempting to detain another student.

Friday, April 26:

  • 44 activists were arrested at the Auraria Higher Education Center, where activists had illegally occupied campus buildings and damaged campus property. Auraria serves as a campus for the Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the University of Colorado Denver.
  • Three activists were arrested at Arizona State University in connection with an illegal encampment that would not be cleared until the next day.
  • Two activists were arrested at the University of Illinois when police cleared an illegal encampment. The two men, who were not students, were charged with “mob action” along with obstructing a peace officer for one aggravated battery to a peace officer for the other.

Saturday, April 27:

  • 100 activists were arrested at the University of Washington, St. Louis when police cleared an illegal encampment. (This number seems suspiciously round, but efforts to obtain a more precise total bore no fruit; therefore, I will proceed as if this was the total.) Among those arrested were 23 students and four school employees, leaving approximately 73 people not affiliated with the school. Jill Stein, 2024 presidential candidate for the Green Party, was one of those arrested.
  • 98 activists were arrested at Northeastern University in Boston at a demonstration that evidently crossed some lines. The demonstration was “infiltrated by professional organizers,” according to a school spokeswoman, which led the school to shut it down. Anyone who could produce a valid school ID card was not arrested. Among the 98 protestors who could not, 29 were students, and six were school employees, leaving 63 people not affiliated with the school.
  • 69 activists were arrested at Arizona State University when police cleared an illegal encampment. Of the 72 total people arrested at ASU between Friday and Saturday, only 15 were students, meaning that 57 were unaffiliated with the school.
  • 12 activists were arrested at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Va. when police cleared an illegal encampment and they refused to leave. The university expressed safety concerns over unaffiliated individuals joining the demonstration. Of those arrested, nine were students, and three were unaffiliated with the school.

Sunday, April 28:

  • Two activists were arrested at the University of Pittsburgh for illegally trespassing on a lawn.

Monday, April 29:

  • 82 activists were arrested at Virginia Tech University after students illegally occupied a lawn. Fifty-three of those arrested were students, leaving 29 who were not affiliated with the school.
  • 79 activists were arrested at the University of Texas at Austin after they again attempted to erect an illegal encampment. Only 34 of those arrested were students, while 45 were not affiliated with the school.
  • 20 activists were arrested at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland after students illegally erected tents during a protest.
  • 19 activists were arrested at the University of Utah when police cleared an illegal encampment. Four students, one school employee, and 14 unaffiliated individuals were among those arrested.
  • 16 activists were arrested at the University of Georgia when police cleared an illegal encampment. Those arrested included 11 students and five unaffiliated individuals. The university subsequently suspended some of those arrested. “Personally, I did not expect to be suspended,” complained one suspended student, Zeena Mohamed. College is supposed to be a place where students learn new things, after all.
  • 13 activists were arrested at Princeton after protestors illegally occupied a campus building.
  • 13 activists were arrested at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond when police cleared an illegal encampment. While six were students, seven were not affiliated with the school.
  • Six students were arrested at Tulane University in connection with an illegal encampment. Only one was a student; the other five were not affiliated with the university.
  • Three activists were arrested at the University of South Florida when the Tampa Bay Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) held an unauthorized rally. The school’s SDS chapter had been suspended for causing a disruption on campus at a previous event.

Tuesday, April 30:

  • 173 activists were arrested at the City College in New York (CCNY) when police were called due to “specific and repeated acts of violence and vandalism.” Both students and “un-affiliated external individuals” refused to leave. The New York Police Department cleared CCNY around the same time that they cleared protestors at Columbia University for the second time.
  • 119 activists were arrested at Columbia University. Activists had illegally occupied the campus for more than a week, causing the campus to be closed. They recently broke into and barricaded a campus building, which they renamed and declared to be “liberated.” Police used a large truck to enter the building through a second-floor window.
  • 36 activists were arrested at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill after they refused to obey a lawful order to disperse. The demonstrators had taken down an American flag and replaced it with a Palestinian flag. Of those arrested, 13 were students, and 23 were not affiliated with the university.
  • 32 activists were arrested at Cal Poly Humboldt after they had illegally occupied a campus building for more than a week. Those arrested included 13 students, one faculty member, and 18 unaffiliated individuals.
  • 25 activists were arrested at the University of Connecticut when police cleared an illegal encampment.
  • 16 activists were arrested at the University of New Mexico after they illegally occupied a campus building. Five of those arrested were students, while 11 of them were not affiliated with the university.
  • 14 activists were arrested at Tulane University when police cleared an illegal encampment. Two of those arrested were students, while 12 of them were not affiliated with the university.
  • 10 activists were arrested at the University of South Florida after the SDS, a suspended student group, tried to stage another illegal encampment. Seventy-five to 100 protestors came equipped with wooden shields and umbrellas in an attempt to counter law enforcement’s anti-riot tactics, but they were ultimately unsuccessful.
  • Nine activists were arrested at the University of Florida when police cleared an illegal encampment. One person was charged with battery to a police officer.

Wednesday, May 1:

  • 34 activists were arrested at the University of Wisconsin at Madison when police cleared an illegal encampment. Four of the demonstrators were charged with resisting arrest and/or battery to a police officer.
  • Activists were arrested overnight at the University of Arizona when police cleared an illegal encampment. At publishing time, it was not known how many activists were arrested.

There are several noteworthy trends in this progression: 1) universities are acting more quickly to disperse illegal encampments; 2) more universities are calling in police to make arrests; 3) the numbers of those arrested is dwindling; and 4) increasing attention is being drawn to the presence of outside agitators.

These trends suggest a number of developments. First, university administrators are watching what is happening at other universities. They are witnessing the recalcitrance of pro-Hamas activists, as well as the headaches and monetary damages they have caused at places like Columbia or Cal Poly Humboldt where they were not dealt with quickly. They have also witnessed the example of the University of Texas at Austin and other schools that have successfully prevented a campus occupation through vigilant policing. These factors motivate university administrators to put an end to the illegal occupation tactics.

Second, the force of the pro-Hamas wave has dwindled as it has expanded. Protests at elite, radically progressive schools had high energy and significant student involvement. But protests at smaller or less elite schools have seen less student enthusiasm. Arrests have been in higher numbers, and there has been a larger proportion of unaffiliated agitators.

Third, even the most radical protestors can behave rationally. Essentially, they would rather not face consequences for their actions — to the point that they are now begging for amnesty from the same administrators they just poked in the eye. It seems that students are making a risk calculation based upon how they believe law enforcement will respond. Police have made the most arrests in progressive (that is, anti-law-enforcement) jurisdictions such as New York, Massachusetts, and California. But protests have been smaller across the South and Midwest, suggesting that fewer students are willing to risk arrest and prosecution for the thrill of camping on the university lawn. This suggests that government officials should consider the incentives they create in how they respond to protests.

Fourth, outside agitators have become involved to an alarming extent. Police made arrests at 22 universities from Saturday to Tuesday; and, in 11 out of 12 instances where the numbers are known, they arrested more outsiders than students. In multiple instances, these outside agitators even participated in illegally occupying campus buildings. It is unacceptable that a handful of activists, with no connection to a university, can seize its property and hold it hostage to absurd demands.

Circumstances on many universities are developing rapidly, and more arrests could follow at any time. Johns Hopkins University has threatened police action against an illegal encampment on its Baltimore campus. Purdue University has threatened ringleaders of an illegal encampment there with disciplinary action. Portland State University in Oregon has closed its campus due to protestors illegally occupying the campus library for two straight days.

As these will not be the last campus arrests related to pro-Hamas protests, neither were they the first. At Brown University, 41 students were arrested in December when they refused to leave a campus building. In March, four students at Vanderbilt University and 22 students and two faculty at Cornell University were also arrested for refusing to leave campus buildings.

But pro-Hamas, anti-Semitic protests on campus exploded in mid-April around Passover. The illegal occupation at Columbia gained the most attention, and campus occupations have expanded ever since. But the activists have gone too far, and universities are fighting back with mass arrests, which have now reached more than 1,600 and counting.

POLL: Vast Majority of Americans Back Israel over Hamas

Against almost unimaginable odds – the Democrat Jew hating media, Jew hating academia, massive dark money funding anti-Israel terrorism in the information battle-space, , Soros, et al — over 80% of American’s support Israel. Righteous. Divine.

Most  Americans support Israel over the terrorist organization Hamas in a poll released on Monday, with 80% of respondents saying they support Israel more in the conflict.

Vast majority of Americans back Israel over Hamas: Poll

By: Jared Gans, The Hill, April 29, 2024:

An overwhelming majority of Americans support Israel in its war against Hamas over the militant group running the Gaza Strip, according to a new poll.

The Harvard CAPS-Harris survey shared with The Hill showed 80 percent of registered voters said they support Israel more in the war, while 20 percent said they support Hamas more. That is about in line with the poll’s findings from last month, when 79 percent indicated they support Israel more.

In this month’s poll, older age groups were much more likely to be supportive of Israel than younger respondents, though a clear majority of each age group supported Israel more than Hamas. More than 90 percent of those 65 years old and older and of those 55 to 64 said they support Israel more, while 85 percent of those 45 to 54 and three-quarters of those 35 to 44 said the same.

Support for Israel was the lowest among the youngest age groups. Pollsters found 64 percent of those 25 to 34 and 57 percent of those 18 to 24 said they support Israel more, while the rest of those age groups said they support Hamas more.

The poll’s results come as numerous pro-Palestinian protests have popped up on college campuses throughout the country. Students have set up encampments to protest for days at schools including Columbia and New York University.

Universities have responded to the protests with a range of tactics including negotiations, suspensions and arrests to try to end the encampments taking place on school property. Protesters have called for their universities to end their business relationships with companies that they say are contributing to Israel’s war, which has resulted in the deaths of thousands of Palestinians.

Mark Penn, the co-director of the poll, said support for Israel “has not budged” despite the “campus unrest.” He said the student protests appear out of step with broader public attitudes on Israel and noted that the poll showed Americans largely want a cease-fire in the war but only after Hamas is removed from power and the hostages they seized during its Oct. 7 attack on Israel are returned.

The poll found 61 percent of respondents support a cease-fire only after those conditions are met, while 39 percent support an unconditional cease-fire. A stark divide exists based on age group in responses to this question.

An overwhelming majority of those 55 to 64 and those 65 and older support a cease-fire only after Hamas is gone and the hostages are returned. More narrow majorities of those 35 to 44 and those 45 to 54 also support that, while 59 percent of 25-to-34-year-olds and 67 percent of 18-to-24-year-olds support an unconditional ceasefire.

Ignorance is Never Bliss!

When it comes to Islam, and as far as adherents of Islam are concerned, there are no moderate Muslims and no radical Muslims. There are only Muslims. When it comes to non-Muslims, ignorance about what Islam is must never be bliss.

The followers if the Prophet must follow the strictures of Islam as promulgated in the Koran and the Hadith. If they depart in any way from what is required of them, then they become apostates and are targets for the ultimate penalty as written in the Koran. It is thus forbidden for the Muslim faithful to interpret the Islamic texts.

Unlike Judaism and Christianity, which have undergone at different times a reformation, Muslims cannot ever depart from the words of Mohammed as written in the Islamic texts. The Koran and the Hadith are thus condemned to remain inviolate and frozen forever in the 7th century.

Without this basic understanding of Islam, which does not mean “peace” but means “submission,” then non-Muslims are condemned to remain ignorant of this reality. Again, in this instance, ignorance is not bliss.

Non-Muslims make a terrible mistake in believing that Islam is a religion of peace. It is a supremacist and triumphalist belief system which tolerates no other belief system as equal.

Islam means submission to the will. Not to the will of the people as in a democracy, but submission to the will of Allah.

The tragedy is that no possibility exists whatsoever in any attempt, past, present or future, at reconciliation with Islam or its adherents by members of other faiths or ideologies.

Ecumenical parleys with imams are doomed to failure and are exercises in utter futility. Non-Muslims should learn what the Arabic word, taqiyyah, means.

With this knowledge, terrible as it is, there can at least be hope among non-Muslims as to how to defend themselves against Islam; what Winston Churchill once so presciently described as, “An ideology wrapped in a religion.”

Turkey’s Islamist president, Recip Tayip Erdogan, angrily mocked non-Muslims who tried to make a distinction between so-called moderate and/or radical Muslims.

He stated that, “there is no such thing as a moderate or a radical Muslim. There are only Muslims.”

He went further and said this:

“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers….”

Those politicians within the U.S., Europe, the UK and the European Union, whose policies of permitting and encouraging an epic flood of Muslim immigration are ushering in irreversible calamity. Islam will harbor no equality but will demand total superiority. Want proof? Watch the hatred now spewing from America’s polluted universities.

Perhaps it would be wise to read or re-read my article and warning from several years ago titled: Dhimmitude for Dummies.

Netanyahu: ‘Campus antisemitism reminiscent of 1930s Germany’

The Prime Minister condemned the antisemitic incidents and protests currently occurring on university campuses in the US and called on administrators to stop them.

By: Israel National News, Apr 24, 2024:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a video in English on Wednesday in which he condemned the anti-Israel and antisemitic rallies currently being held in universities in the United States.

“What’s happening in America’s college campuses is horrific. Antisemitic mobs have taken over leading universities. They call for the annihilation of Israel. They attack Jewish students. They attack Jewish faculty. This is reminiscent of what happened in German universities in the 1930s. It’s unconscionable. It has to be stopped. It has to be condemned and condemned unequivocally. But that’s not what happened. The response of several university presidents was shameful,” the Prime Minister stated.

With this, he noted that “fortunately, state, local, and federal officials, many of them have responded differently but there has to be more. More has to be done. It has to be done not only because they attack Israel, that’s bad enough, not only because they want to kill Jews wherever they are, that’s bad enough, it’s also when you listen to them, it’s also because they say not only, ‘Death to Israel. Death to the Jews,” but “death to America.’ And this tells us that there is an antisemitic surge here that has terrible consequences.

“We see this exponential rise of antisemitism throughout America and throughout Western societies as Israel tries to defend itself against genocidal terrorists, genocidal terrorists who hide behind civilians. Yet it is Israel that is falsely accused of genocide, Israel that is falsely accused of starvation, and all sundry war crimes. It’s all one big libel. But that’s not new. We’ve seen in history that antisemitic attacks were always preceded by vilification and slander, lies that were cast against the Jewish people that are unbelievable yet people believed them.”

Netanyahu added: “Now, what is important now is for all of us, all of us who are interested and cherish our values and our civilization, to stand up together and to say enough is enough. We have to stop antisemitism because antisemitism is the canary in the coal mine. It always precedes larger conflagrations that engulf the entire world.

“So I ask all of you, Jews and non-Jews alike, who are concerned with our common future and our common values to do one thing: stand up, speak up, be counted. Stop antisemitism now,” he concluded.

Netanyahu: ‘Whoever harms us, we will harm them’

“All the ‘experts’ fear an Iranian attack on Israel, but Iran fears how Israel will respond much more. Netanyahu is projecting strength, not fear.” — Newsrael.


“We are prepared to meet all of the security needs of the State of Israel, both defensively and offensively,” said the Israeli premier.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that the Jewish state would respond in kind to any attack.

Speaking during a visit to the Tel Nof Air Base, he said, “We are in challenging times. We are in the midst of the war in Gaza, which is continuing at full force, even as we are continuing our relentless efforts to return our hostages.”

However, he continued, “We are also prepared for scenarios involving challenges in other sectors. We have determined a simple rule: Whoever harms us, we will harm them. We are prepared to meet all of the security needs of the State of Israel, both defensively and offensively.”

Washington and its allies believe a major attack on Israel by Iran is imminent and may be launched in the coming days.

The Islamic Republic’s response to the killing of an Iranian general in Syria on April 1, which Tehran has blamed on the Jewish state, could involve high-precision missiles being launched at Israel.

The U.S. military commander in charge of the Middle East arrived in Israel on Thursday to coordinate with the Israel Defense Forces regarding a possible attack by Iran and its proxies.

Gen. Erik Kurilla, commander of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), will reportedly meet with Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and senior military officials.

The Israel Defense Forces has been placed on high alert, resulting in combat soldiers’ weekend leaves being canceled and the military calling up additional reserve soldiers to the IDF Aerial Defense Array.

On Wednesday, U.S. President Joe Biden sent a public warning to Iran, saying: “As I told Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu, our commitment to Israel’s security against these threats from Iran and its proxies is ironclad.”

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz warned on Tuesday that Israel will respond in kind should Iran launch a direct attack against it.

“If Iran attacks from its territory—Israel will respond and attack in Iran,” tweeted Katz. The minister tagged Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in the X post.

NEWSRAEL: While the West still panders to the Iranian Ayatollahs even though it terribly oppresses its own people, Israel is the only country willing to attacks the Iranians head on!

The ‘Anachronism’ of Apostasy

Whereas the practice of slavery enslaves the body, the dogma of apostasy ensnares the mind. Whereas slavery is a shameful practice of the past, some shameless religionists still use the doctrine of apostasy to intimidate and severely punish people who elect to choose their own beliefs.

Islam is extremely possessive of its subjects. It is a religion that admits anyone into its fold by the person simply uttering a one-sentence statement of faith, shahada: I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s messenger. By so saying, one becomes Muslim for life and surrenders the right of ever leaving it. Anyone who leaves the Islamic fold is murtad (revert), apostate.

The notion of apostasy is best understood within the overall Islamic dogma. Islam forms a binding covenant with the believer. Once a person is Muslim, he and his issues are considered Muslim forever. In this covenant, Islam promises to bestow its beneficence on the faithful conditional on the person’s total and unquestioned surrender to it in all matters. Some of the rewards offered by Islam to the truly obedient believer, particularly the privileged males, are of this world as well as a great deal more promised to him in the next. If a Muslim faithful does not reap the rewards of his devotion in this world, Islam assures him of his inestimably cherished and limitless compounded rewards in the next world.

Islam demands the subjugation of the individual’s will to that of Allah and permeates the thinking, actions, and speech of Muslims by prefacing commitments they make contingent on the will of God (inshallah)

This total surrender and submission to Allah’s will and decree also absolve the individual from taking full responsibility for his conduct or honoring any commitments he may make, for Allah has the unquestioned authority to consummate or contravene any action or promise made by a faithful.

Within this overall framework of complete acceptance of Islam as the perfect living charter for the believer, the rules pertaining to apostasy can be better understood. Islam considers an apostate as a person who unilaterally breaks the covenant he has made with the faith. An apostate is condemned as guilty of turning his back on Allah’s immutable, eternal religion. Anyone who is born to Muslim parents and leaves Islam is stigmatized as murtad fitri (natural apostate) in the sense that he was born genetically Muslim and had rejected his gift of birth. Anyone who converts to Islam and later leaves it is condemned as murtad milli (a person who has turned his back to the Ummah)

The severe stricture against leaving Islam is consistent with other main principle beliefs of the religion. Islam is a faith of surrender and not that of free will. A Muslim is to surrender his freedom of thoughts and actions to the will and dictates of Allah. The very principle of freedom is alien to the Islamic belief system.

With regard to apostasy, the two main branches of Islam, the Sunni and the Shiite, are in considerable agreement. The great majority of Muslim scholars of both major camps agree that the Quran stipulates death for the apostate.

Islam, by its very nature, is an all-encompassing belief system that prescribes every detail of a person’s and society’s conduct. Sharia law, a comprehensive code of Islamic jurisprudence, purportedly is based on the Quran and the Hadith (the reported enunciation of Muhammad and his conduct).

Furthermore, Islamic societies rule by the Islamic laws of Sharia. Any new societal legislation must be harmonious with those of the Sharia, which are conclusively anti-democratic. Sharia law is in explicit contradiction and violation of the foundation of democracy. Sharia law places the dictates and rules of Allah over the sovereignty of the people. It discriminates against non-Muslims to the extreme of disenfranchising them from their rights of citizenship of Baha’is, barring them from jobs, higher education, worship, etc., not only in Iran but also in Saudi Arabia and even Egypt. It is blatantly discriminatory against women, Muslim or not. Men have a greater claim to inheritance, their testimony in the court of law is worth twice that of women, and they may marry multiple women at the same time. It stipulates even different rules and privileges governing free Muslim men as opposed to slave Muslims, implicitly condoning slavery. Saudi Arabia, the flagship of Islam, was finally forced by the free world to abandon slavery, I believe, only in the late 1960s, but it has been reported that it has not been completely abandoned.

Apostasy is defined both in the Quran as well as the Sharia and its punishment is clearly stipulated.

“Those who blasphemed and back away from the ways of Allah and die as blasphemers, Allah shall not forgive them.” — Qur’an 4:48

Islamic law does not allow the freedom to choose one’s religion.

“Let there be no compulsion in the religion: Clearly the Right Path (i.e., Islam) is distinct from the crooked path.” — Qur’an 2:256

The Quran also specifically addresses the issue of murtad milli:

“But those who reject faith after they accepted it, and then go on adding to their defiance of faith, never will their repentance be accepted; for they are those who have (of set purpose) gone astray.”  — Qur’an 3:90

The Hadith further restates the Quran’s provision regarding the apostate’s punishment.

The Sharia law stipulates that any Muslim who turns his back to Islam should be given a chance to revert to the religion. For an un-repenting male apostate, death is the punishment and life imprisonment for a female apostate.

“Kill whoever changes his religion.” — Sahih al-Bukhari 9:84:57

“The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshiped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims.” — Sahih al-Bukhari 9:83:17

At present, apostasy is illegal in most Islamic countries. Although execution of the apostate is not common, it takes place occasionally by frequently buttressing the “crime” with additional charges. The Islamic Republic of Iran, for instance, often adds the charge of mohareb (one who wars with God) to legitimize its execution of apostates further. A case in point pertains to the treatment of the religious minority Baha’is by the Islamic Republic. A number of Baha’is have been charged as apostates and mohareb, executed and some secretly buried in unmarked graves.

The late Ayatollah Khomeini in his Tahrir al-Wassilah adjudicates how a person’s apostasy is established: “Apostasy is proven in two ways: First, the person himself confesses to his apostasy twice. Second, two and truthful men bear witness to the person’s apostasy. But women’s testimonies do not prove apostasy in any case; either they bear witness individually, in a group, or beside a man.”

The misogynistic nature of Islam is once again evident in Ayatollah Khomeini’s blanket disqualification of women’s testimony solely on the basis of gender.

“Apostasy — or the formal renunciation of religion — is already punishable in Iran with death. But now, Iran wants to make the death penalty for apostasy part of the penal code. The European Union is concerned and has asked Iran to reconsider.”

Who is an apostate according to the legislation?

Anyone in the world, not just Iranians, born to a Muslim parent; also, any convert to Islam who leaves it. Only one parent needs to be a Muslim at the time of conception for Islam to own that child for life. Islam is Ummahist. Islam doesn’t recognize nationalities and national boundaries. And these Islamist zealots are very serious and have no sense of humor. Some say they have no sense at all, and they may be right. What they certainly have is a thirst for blood, particularly for the blood of infidels and apostates.

It is noteworthy that Islam considers the world as its Ummah and overarches national boundaries. Hence, Islamic clerics feel free to issue fatwa and other adjudications regarding any person, group, or nation anywhere in the world. A celebrated case of this practice was the fatwa of Ayatollah Khomeini against the British author Salman Rushdie for his book The Satanic Verses. Hence, individual Muslims anywhere in the world take it upon themselves to carry out fatwa issued by Islamic high divines. In another high-profile case, the killing of Theo van Gough, a Dutch film director, and the recent attack on the Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard clearly demonstrates this primitive practice that runs counter to the civilized world’s due process and has a seriously intimidating impact on the freedom of expression.

Free people and nations should not sacrifice their God-given liberty to please the Islamists by muzzling dissenters and even endangering their safety and their lives.

The concept and practice of apostasy is a shameful stain on the conscience of humanity. It is despicable for any belief system to stubbornly cling to the dehumanizing anachronism of apostasy while its counterpart, slavery, is already buried in mankind’s graveyard of past infamy.

Jordan rocked by pro-Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood protests, ‘serious threat to Hashemite Kingdom’

“Jordan’s government has been one of the most vocal opponents of Israel’s war to root out Hamas terrorists from Gaza.” The battle is on for control of the region, and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is infamous for destabilizing countries. Recall the upheaval in Egypt in 2012, before Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi was overthrown. Other countries, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Syria, have joined Egypt in banning the MB.

Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement (which is no different from Hamas in its intention to obliterate Israel) recently slammed Iran for meddling in internal Palestinian affairs, and primarily for its support of Muslim Brotherhood offshoot Hamas. The Israeli war on Hamas is evolving to encompass divisions in the Islamic world which are moving toward a boiling point, particularly in regard to Muslim organizations and countries which either reject Muslim Brotherhood or, as in the case of Fatah, are competing with Hamas.

Jordan is now faced with internal instability and a grave threat to its government from the Muslim Brotherhood. According to MEMRI:

This incitement of the Jordanian public by Hamas and MB officials enraged the Jordanian establishment. Initially, this establishment thought that adopting Hamas’ rhetoric would protect it from the public fury, but it seems that this tactic has been unsuccessful, and that Hamas’ propaganda and incitement has weakened Jordan and today even threatens to destabilize the regime.

US ally Jordan rocked by pro-Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood protests over Gaza war

by Benjamin Weinthal, Fox News, April 4, 2024:

One of the U.S.’s closest Mideast allies, Jordan, has been hit by demonstrations that, according to some analysts, have spilled over into a serious threat to the Hashemite Kingdom with open declarations of support for the Hamas terrorist organization.

Jordan’s government has been one of the most vocal opponents of Israel’s war to root out Hamas terrorists from Gaza after the jihadi movement slaughtered 1,200 people on Oct. 7, including many Americans.

Jordan’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi declared in November that “Hamas is an idea and ideas do not die.” Jordan’s Queen Rania cast doubt in a CNN interview on whether Hamas really committed atrocities on Oct. 7.

Veteran experts on Jordan view King Abdullah II and his inner circle as contributing, directly and indirectly, to the unrest that could potentially dislodge his regime.

The former Israeli ambassador to Jordan, Jacob Rosen, told Fox News Digital that “Jordan is walking on a very tight rope. The authorities let the Muslim Brotherhood under whatever cover they operate to voice out their message, but they disperse any demonstrations [that] may go ‘wrong’ or to turn against the government itself.”…

Sara Tabrizi’s Tragic Death under the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence is a Call for Justice and Solidarity

Sara Tabrizi’s tragic death profoundly underscores the ongoing human rights violations and political repression in Iran, mainly targeting women and political dissidents.

In this heart-wrenching story that has shaken the world, we mourn the loss of Sara Tabrizi, a brave 20-year-old former political prisoner in Iran. Her untimely death, occurring just hours after her interrogation by the Ministry of Intelligence, has ignited a firestorm of outrage and condemnation from human rights activists and organizations worldwide. This tragic incident sheds light on the ongoing human rights violations and political repression in Iran, revealing a regime that operates with impunity, silencing dissent and perpetuating a culture of fear and intimidation.

Sara Tabrizi’s journey began as a courageous young woman who dared to challenge the oppressive regime in Iran. Faced with the brutal crackdown on dissent and political opposition, she found herself imprisoned in the notorious “Evin Prison,” a place where hope fades and dreams wither. Despite her unimaginable hardships, Sara remained resilient, refusing to be silenced.

On March 23, 2024, Sara was summoned to the Ministry of Intelligence, a summons that would mark the beginning of her tragic end. Interrogations in Iran have long been synonymous with torture, a grotesque practice used to extract confessions and intimidate political opponents. Sara’s case was no exception. She was subjected to unimaginable horrors, stripping her of her dignity and humanity. Hours later, she was found dead in her home, leaving behind a grieving family and a world demanding answers.

Sara’s death serves as a chilling reminder of the Iranian regime’s complete disregard for human rights. The international community must rise with a unified voice to condemn these actions and hold the Iranian regime accountable. We cannot turn a blind eye to the continuous violations and political repression that plague the lives of countless Iranians. It is our moral duty to demand justice for Sara and all those who have been unjustly persecuted.

The suspicions surrounding Sara Tabrizi’s death demand a thorough and independent investigation. The Iranian regime cannot be trusted to investigate themselves. The international community must rally behind this cause, applying relentless pressure on the Islamic regime to allow an impartial inquiry into the circumstances surrounding Sara’s death. Only through an independent investigation can truth, justice, and closure be achieved.

Sara’s tragic fate serves as a chilling reminder of the risks faced by those who dare to oppose the oppressive regime in Iran. Countless lives have been lost, disappearances have become commonplace, and arbitrary arrests continue to haunt the nation. We must stand in solidarity with the Iranian people, amplify their voices, and support their quest for freedom and democracy.

The United States and its European Allies must stop dealing and negotiating with the unelected terrorist regime of Iran, which has been holding a nation hostage for over forty-five years.  We must recognize the power of international solidarity. The Iranian people yearn for a future without fear, where their voices are heard and their dreams are realized. By standing united, we can create a powerful force in support of the Iranian s people to dislodge the Mullahs.

Like Mahsa AminiSara  Tabrizi’s tragic death serves as a reminder of the risks and consequences faced by those who dare to challenge the status quo in Iran and the importance of international solidarity in supporting the Iranian people in their quest for freedom.

To honor her memory, the international community must take a stand and condemn the ongoing human rights violations and political repression in Iran. Together, we can strive towards a future where no one lives in fear and where justice prevails for Sara and countless others who have suffered at the hands of an unjust regime.

The brave women of Iran will forever shine as beacons of hope and a source of inspiration to those worldwide who struggle for justice, equality, and liberty.

Biden Sells Out Israel in UN ‘Ceasefire’ Resolution

A ceasefire doesn’t protect Israeli civilians. It protects Hamas.

Describing a “ceasefire in connection with the release of all remaining hostages” rather than a ceasefire in exchange for is deliberately ambiguous.The draft UN resolution from the Biden administration calls for “an immediate and sustained ceasefire to protect civilians on all sides, allow for the delivery of essential humanitarian assistance, and alleviate humanitarian suffering, and towards that end unequivocally supports ongoing international diplomatic efforts to secure such a ceasefire in connection with the release of all remaining hostages”.

But that makes sense as the Biden administration is following Qatar’s lead in moving away from a straight exchange and toward a ceasefire as a good thing in and of itself.

That means Israel can’t fight Hamas and can’t free its hostages. The same however is not true of Hamas.

The draft UN resolution falsely claims that a ceasefire will “protect civilians on all sides”.

There was a ceasefire on Oct 6. Furthermore, during the so-called humanitarian pause of the previous hostage exchange, Hamas terrorists carried out a terrorist attack in Jerusalem, murdering a pregnant woman and an elderly Rabbi.

So far the death toll from the truce includes Liba Dickman, a 24-year old preschool teacher pregnant with her first child, Chanah Ifergan, a 67-year-old principal and Rabbi Elimelech Wasserman, a 73-year-old rabbi. Who knows what more deaths the bloody truce will bring.

3 dead and at least 11 wounded after only 6 days of truce.

A ceasefire is not about ending attacks on Israel. It does not protect Israeli civilians. Just the opposite. It provides cover for Hamas to plan and launch further attacks like the one on Oct 7.

No such thing ever worked or will work. Hamas has made it clear that it intends to destroy Israel. Period.

What a ceasefire does is stop Israel from taking out Hamas.

Let’s Focus On Islam, Again

Elections are coming up in the U.S., but an important topic is left off the table.

This topic is Islam, a dangerous religion, that contradicts everything that Christian civilization stands for.

You would think that such a grave threat as the Rise of Islam in the World would be an important talking point among presidential candidates. But they shy away from discussing it. Or, as in the case of Joe Biden, they even embrace this dangerous religion, and wrongly think of it as a religion of peace.

The reason that not one famous American politician these days dares to talk about Islam, is fear for the consequences. There is great fear that one gets death threats from Muslims, or that the media will portray one as a racist and hater, or that one becomes a target of an assassinations.

Many years ago, I had a mentor in Bloemendaal, a village to the North of the town of Harlem. The name of my mentor was Mr. Spaanderman. He was more than 70 years old and his profession was psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.

Mr. Spaanderman taught me lessons about fear. He said that fear is a bad counselor. In fact, he entrusted me that fear is the worst counselor.

If you listen to your fears, you are in the end not superior to the animals.

I hope that the situation in America changes for the better. That means that the difficult topics are being talked about by politicians.

I personally consider Islam the gravest threat to Western civilization. And I have good reason to do so, as I have studied this religion in-depth. Let’s focus on Islam again.

U.N.R.W.A. Staff Recordings Prove Hamas Treated Young Women ‘Like Animals’

‘Sabaya’ is a term in Islam that describes women and children as the property of a Muslim man. It also means slave and handmaiden.

The most difficult use of ‘Sabaya’ was by ISIS terrorists, who called the captured Yazidi women this.

The Qur’an allows men to have sexual access to “what their right hands possess,” meaning female captives or slaves (Q. 23.5-6; 70.29-30).

IDF spokesperson: UNRWA staff recordings prove Hamas treated young women ‘like animals’

By Emanuel Fabian, Times of Israel, 4 March 2024:

IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari in an evening press conference says that despite the “difficult content,” the military chose to release the audio recordings of UNRWA staff who participated in the October 7 onslaught, to “remind and not forget.”

“The massacre committed by Hamas on October 7 is the most documented massacre in history. Hamas terrorists filmed their own cruelty. As time goes by, more and more testimonies are revealed, more intelligence every day,” he says.

“You can hear how the terrorists entered Israeli territory, participated in the massacre, and terror, and captured ‘sabaya.’”

He explains that in one of the recordings, a Hamas terrorist, who worked as a teacher at a UNRWA school in Deir al-Balah, tells his friend that he captured a sabaya, a term used by Islamic State jihadists that means sex slave.

“Sabaya” is a term in Islam that describes women and children as the property of a Muslim man. It also means slave and handmaiden. The most difficult use of “sabaya” was by ISIS terrorists, who called the captured Yazidi women this, Hagari says.

“On October 7, Hamas treated young women with cruelty and brutality, kidnapped them from their homes, and treated them like animals,” Hagari continues.

“How they refer to the hostages as ‘sabaya’ and a ‘noble mare’ keeps us awake at night, and requires the world to shout, as it did for the Yazidi women,” he says.

Hagari adds that, via the testimonies from hostages who were released from Gaza, “we learn about the dangers the hostages are exposed to, especially the women and children.”
