Sweden’s Security Service: We’ve Got 2,000 ISIS Sympathizers In This Country

Wow.

According to Anders Thornberg, the leader of Sweden’s security service, Säpo, there are now as many as 2,000 Islamic extremist sympathizers in the Nordic nation. That is a 900% increase from just seven years ago, when the number was estimated to be approximately 200.

Thornberg says he has “never seen anything like it before.”

Despite the belief that the great majority of radical sympathizers lack the ability and means to conduct terrorist attacks, such an increase is deeply concerning.

“Thornberg said Säpo now receives around 6,000 intelligence tips a month concerning terrorism and extremism, compared to an average 2,000 a month in 2012,” reports The Local.  DailyWire

Terror expert Magnus Ranstorp of the Swedish Defence University told The Local the new figures were expected. “Those of us working in the field of counter-terrorism are not surprised, it has been in the making for some time, it didn’t just appear. When IS declared the caliphate, that was the genie out of the bottle,” he said.

“It is a development we’re seeing in general, of course it’s worse in bigger countries. In the UK there are 23,000 extremists, in Belgium there are 18,000, in France 17,000. Not everyone is equally dangerous, but it only takes a small number of people.”  TheLocal.se

Evidence Of Babylonian Destruction Of Jerusalem 2,600 Years Ago Unearthed In City Of David

He burned the house of the Lord, the king’s house and all the houses of Jerusalem; even every large house he burned with fire.  Jeremiah 52:13

New finds in the City of David confirm the veracity of the biblical account of the Babylonian capture and conquest of First Temple period Jerusalem. The event is commemorated next Tuesday on the Hebrew date Tisha B’av (August 1) in a day of fasting and mourning, Israeli experts said.

According to Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologist Dr. Joe Uziel, co-director of the current excavations at the City of David, findings discovered in the site’s eastern slope, including a row of 2,600-year-old rooms and their contents — all covered with visible layers of charcoal ash — aid in understanding the days leading up to and the act of the destruction.

Within the collapsed rooms were uncovered rare artifacts, including a unique, apparently Egyptian, ivory statue of a nude woman, and smashed pottery jars with a rosette seal which was in royal use during the final decade before the fall of the First Temple, according to co-director Ortal Chalaf.

“These seals are characteristic of the end of the First Temple period and were used for the administrative system that developed towards the end of the Judean dynasty. Classifying objects facilitated controlling, overseeing, collecting, marketing and storing crop yields. The rosette, in essence, replaced the ‘For the King’ seal used in the earlier administrative system,” said Chalaf.

Additionally, charred remains of wood, grape seeds, and fish scales and bones will be carbon dated by members of the interdisciplinary cooperative team of Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologists and Weizmann Institute scientists Elisabetta Boaretto and her postdoctoral fellow Johanna Regev, who were present at the dig site.

According to biblical descriptions, in 586 BCE, the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar vanquished the Judaean king Zedekiah and razed his capital city, Jerusalem. The Babylonian captain of the guard Nebuzaradan was dispatched into the city, where, as told in the Book of Jeremiah, he “burned the house of the Lord, and the king’s house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, even every great man’s house, burned he with fire.”

At the dig site, the rampant destruction caused by a fiery inferno is clearly seen. Burnt charcoal layers of destruction preserved flooring and utensils in situ, giving a stark picture of the immediacy of the blaze.  TimesOfIsrael

Canadian Parent Fights To Omit Gender On Child’s Birth Certificate

This is ridiculous and heartbreaking. That poor child.

Kori Doty identifies as neither male nor female, and wants their child to be able to do the same.

A parent in B.C.’s Slocan Valley is fighting to omit their child’s sex on their birth certificate as part of a broader effort to keep gender from being included on government documents.

Kori Doty gave birth to Searyl Atli at a friend’s home last November. Doty, a non-binary trans parent who doesn’t identify as either male or female, (and prefers to use the pronoun they), wants to keep Searyl’s gender off all official records.

“I’m raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are, I’m recognizing them as a baby and trying to give them all the love and support to be the most whole person that they can be outside of the restrictions that come with the boy box and the girl box,” Doty said.

Doty says the province is refusing to issue Searyl a birth certificate with no gender on it, although last month the province did acquiesce and send out the child’s health card with a “U” for gender, presumably for “undetermined” or “unassigned,” so they could access medical services. CBA

Why Did Minneapolis Police Search Justine Damond’s Home After They Killed Her?

Fishing expedition to make Justine look bad that will help them cover this up?

Noor is on paid leave.

It’s been 11 days since Mohamed Noor shot and killed Justine Damond, and he still hasn’t explained why he did it. Now we have another question the Minneapolis Police Department needs to answer.

Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigators were granted permission to search Justine Damond’s home hours after she was shot and killed by a Minneapolis police officer, according to court records…

“I don’t understand why they’re looking for bodily fluids inside her home,” said Joseph Daly, an emeritus professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, referring to one of two recently-released search warrant applications.

“Whose bodily fluids are they looking for? Is she a suspect? I don’t understand why they’re looking for controlled substances inside her home. I don’t understand why they’re looking for writings inside her home. The warrant does not explain that to me.”

A cynical mind might assume that the police, having just killed an unarmed, pajama-clad woman right outside her home after she called 911 to report a possible rape, were searching her house to find something they could use to claim it was justified. Presumably they didn’t find anything, or we would’ve heard about it by now.  DailyCaller

Trying to implicate and smear an innocent woman to make Noor an affirmative action diversity fast tracked cadet the victim?  Hope that eventually this shooting will vanish from the news and then officer Noor can get a disability pension for emotional trauma.  It also saves the whole practice of affirmative action.

There are nearly 2 billion Muslims in the world, amounting to a quarter of the world’s population, controlling 50 countries. The English-speaking world is about a fifth that size and constitutes a dwindling majority in about a half-dozen countries. But, somehow, no matter how the story is written, Muslims always get to play the victim, and Anglo-Saxons are cast as the aggressors.

That’s why a Somali cop’s fatal shooting of a pajama-clad Good Samaritan has gone directly into the “Be Nice to Muslims!” file, rather than the “Why Are All These Somalis Here?” file. (Answer: Because of an earlier mistake with excessive Scandinavian immigration.)

I can’t help noticing that it was precisely the “Be Nice to Muslims!” dictate that put this Somali nincompoop on the police force in the first place.

Among Noor’s evident errors the night he killed Justine:

1) Shooting from the passenger seat, the bullet whizzing inches past his partner’s face, through the driver’s side window;

2) Not turning his bodycam on when responding to a 911 call;

3) Shooting to kill because he heard a loud noise;

4) Believing that white women in America pose a threat to a policeman.

A few of the Weather Underground ladies were accomplices to cop-killings, 40 years ago, but even they weren’t lone white women cop-killers.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, women of any race committed about 10 percent of all murders from 1980 to 2008, and black people committed a majority of all murders. Other than a small child, it’s difficult to think of a demographic that poses less of a threat to a policeman in America than a 40-year-old white woman.

Noor’s African-American neighbor, Chris Miller, said he was shocked when he heard about Damond’s shooting — until he found out it was Noor. Miller told The Daily Telegraph (Australia) that his Somali neighbor was quick to anger and was always going off on women and children. “He is extremely nervous,” Miller said, “a little jumpy … he doesn’t really respect women, the least thing you say to him can set him off.”

Sounds perfect for a police officer!

May we see Officer Noor’s cadet exam? His training reports? Does anyone believe there is the slightest possibility that Noor was not rushed through the Police Academy so that the nice people of Minneapolis could feel good about themselves for having a real Somali on the police force?  TruthRevolt

1,600-Year-Old Byzantine-Era Stone Wine Press Found In The Ramat, Negev Region

Cool!

A lare Byzantine-era wine press uncovered in the Negev region is only the second of its kind to be found…

According to the archaeologist of the southern Negev region Yoram Chaimi, the discovery of the wine press came as a complete surprise. “In the entire southern Negev region, there is only one other wine press that is included inside an enclosed structure, which is in [the Nabataean city] of Avdat,” also along the incense trade route.

Gini hypothesized as to why the wine press was abandoned. “In the middle of the sixth century CE, there was a disastrous plague, which led to less need of wine in the southern regions. After the plague, they continued to use the building, but not the winepress,” she said. At the end of the Byzantine period, the area was deserted.  TimesofIsrael

Wine-Making

Haimi, who is heading an ongoing dig aimed at unearthing the history of the Sobibor extermination camp in Poland, took a moment to speak to The Jerusalem Post while supervising excavation of the ancient wine press.

“Wine-making at the time was done using human labor,” he said. “The workers would step on the grapes, then the pulp would be delivered to a basin where the clear liquid would surface and the dregs sink. This clear liquid is tirosh, the grape juice most Israelis associate with childhood Seder meals in which they were given the sweet, nonalcoholic tirosh to drink for the traditional four cups of wine.

“The tirosh would be moved to fermentation pots. Negev wines were held in very high esteem at the time, like the boutique wines of today,’ said Haimi.

Wine production in the region went smoothly until a plague in the sixth century CE led to the decline of wine-making in southern Israel. The wine industry came to halt with the Arab conquest of the Levant and the end of the Byzantine period.  Jpost

Rep. Steve Scalise Discharged From The Hospital; Enters Rehab

Good!

Some happy hump-day news: more than a month after he was shot and nearly killed while at baseball practice for the Congressional Baseball Game, Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) has been discharged from MedStar Washington Hospital Center and has entered an inpatient rehabilitation program. Scalise was discharged on Tuesday.

A statement from MedStar said that Scalise has made “excellent” progress and is in “good spirits.” He expects to return to work once he has finished with rehab.

Congressman Steve Scalise has made excellent progress in his recovery from a life-threatening gunshot wound six weeks ago. Yesterday, he was discharged from MedStar Washington Hospital Center and is now beginning a period of intensive inpatient rehabilitation. He is in good spirits and is looking forward to his return to work once he completes rehabilitation. He and his family are grateful for the care he received from the trauma team as well as the other doctors, nurses, and staff of MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The family also appreciates the outpouring of prayers and support during this time.  TownHall

Hungary’s Leader Orban: ‘Europe Must Regain Sovereignty From The Soros Empire’, EU and Soros Seek To “Muslimize” Europe

Orban’s foreign policy is “Hungarian interests”.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has made an impassioned defence of European values and identity at the Bálványos Summer University camp in Romania Saturday, calling on European nations to end their association with billionaire open-borders financier George Soros….

Laying out his vision for a future Europe without the influence of Soros, Orban said: ““In order for Europe to be able to live, it has to win back its sovereignty from the Soros Empire… Once this is done, migrants must be taken back outside the EU. It sounds strict, but those who came illegally, must be transported back,” Prime Minister Orbán said. “We have to admit that the European continent cannot remain unprotected.”

Discussing immigration to Hungary in a speech that came just days after his government announced the total requests submitted for Hungarian citizenships had hit one million, Orban said he would continue to oppose migrants “who could change the country’s cultural identity”.

As long as I remain the prime minister, the fence will stay in place. We will protect Hungary and Europe.

We can never be in solidarity with ideals, peoples and ethnic groups who set out with the goal to change European culture… because the end result is collapse.

Will Europe be inhabited by Europeans? Will Hungary be inhabited by Hungarians, Germany by Germans, France by the French, Italy by Italians? Who will live in Europe?

Speaking of this clash of cultures, Orban said: “the culture of migrants is opposed to European culture, conflicting ideas to not prevail at the same time”, and remarked that mass migration could not be the solution to economic problems. Doing as nations like Germany had for decades by importing foreign workers to prop up the economy, he compared to a man stranded on a desert island drinking sea water to survive: “That too is water, but the problem gets worse”.

Better, he said, was for European nations to have stable populations supported by birth rates that allowed for natural biological replacement. For Hungary to achieve that, the Prime Minister said, it would have to achieve a birth rate of 2.1 children per family — a figure presently unheard of among Europeans.

Recognising that other Western and European nations were taking many migrants and seeing their cultures change as a result, Orban declared his nation’s borders open to like minded European, declaring that Hungary is a place where “Western European Christians will always be able to find security”.

San Diego Teacher Refuses To Answer Whether She Is American To Border Patrol And Held For More Than An Hour

She is not above the law, all she did was waste the border guards time.  She posted videos online.

A San Diego middle school teacher was detained for more than an hour at a checkpoint in New Mexico because she refused to tell agents if she was a US citizen.  When Shane Parmely and her family were stopped by Border Patrol, she was asked if she was a US citizen, but refused to answer.

The incident was filmed by passengers in the car with her and Parmely, who teaches English, art and theater, posted a series of the videos to Facebook.

She told the officers she didn’t think she had to answer their questions and after some back and forth, an agent told her she was being detained…

After some back and forth between Parmely and the agent, who told her she had to answer his questions, she responded: ‘You can ask, but I don’t have to answer.’

‘You are required to answer an immigration question,’ he said. ‘You are not required to answer any other questions.’

She eventually asks if she can go or if she is being detained. He responds: ‘You are being detained, ma’am.’

He eventually pulls a card out of his wallet with information about immigration law and the Supreme Court case United States v. Martinez-Fuerte.

The 1976 decision allowed US Border Patrol to set up checkpoints within 100 miles of the Mexican border, which are not a violation of the Fourth Amendment.  DailyMail

U.S. State Department Lawyers Removing References To ISIS ‘Genocide’ Against Christians, Other Religious Minorities

The State Dept.  needs to be purged of Obama appointees.

The State Department’s top lawyers are systematically removing the word “genocide” to describe the Islamic State’s mass slaughter of Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria from speeches before they are delivered and other official documents, according to human rights activists and attorneys familiar with the policies.

Additionally, Democratic senators are delaying confirmation of Mark Green, Trump’s pick to head the U.S. Agency for International Development who has broad bipartisan support.

These efforts guarantee that Obama-era policies that worked to exclude Iraq’s Christian and other minority religious populations from key U.S. aid programs remain in place, the activists said.

Richard Visek, who was appointed by President Obama as head the State Department’s Office of Legal Adviser in October 2016, is behind the decision to remove the word “genocide” from official documents, according to Nina Shea, an international human rights lawyer who directs the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom.  FoxNews

State Dept.  Justification of Terrorism

Judging by the standard used by the authors of State Department’s reporting on Israel in the newly released Country Reports on Terrorism for 2016, the Palestinian terrorist who violently stabbed to death three Israelis and seriously wounded another as they celebrated the Shabbat and the birth of a new grandson should not be held responsible.

Why?  Because as the State Department puts it, it is the “frustration” with and “perception” of Israel’s policies that drives Palestinian terrorists to murder Israelis.

The State Department’s report claims that the “[c]ontinued drivers of [Palestinian] violence” are Israel’s policies.  Accordingly, Palestinian terrorists like this one commit violence not because schools, television, newspapers, mosques, and social media are constantly inciting to violence against Israel and its Jewish citizens.  Moreover, the report praises Mahmoud Abbas’s “commitment to fight terrorism” and call for “culture of peace and tolerance and the renunciation of violence and extremism.”  It also notes that the “PA’s Palestinian Broadcasting Company’s code of conduct does not allow programming that encourages ‘violence against any person or institution on the basis of race, religion, political beliefs, or sex.'”  Apparently, in a thin effort to disguise State’s siding with the Palestinians, the report admits that “[i]n practice, however, some instances of incitement took place via official media. There were also some instances of inflammatory rhetoric and the posting of political cartoons glorifying violence on official Fatah Facebook pages.”  “[S]ome instances”?  Try every day, everywhere, all the time.

The Palestinian terrorists, according to the State Department, are driven to such extreme violence because of “lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood, Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank … [and] the perception that the Israeli government was changing the status quo on the Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount.”  Moreover, the report also blames the IDF for its effort to curb such violence “with tactics that the Palestinians considered overly aggressive.”

The authors of the report don’t consider Palestinians murdering Israelis at their homes, streets, bus stations, stores, and coffee houses, “overly aggressive.”  If this outrageous attitude continues, how long before the State Department describes the actions of Palestinians breaking into Israeli homes and murdering the elderly, women, and children at their dinner table as “defensive actions”?  AmericanThinker

Sweden’s Islamic Rape Crisis: Almost Half of Victims are CHILDREN

Sweden sacrificing her children.   Rape numbers continue to rise as the migrant population rises, with an disturbingly high percentage of the victims are children.

Rapes in Sweden has been soaring since the country started to take in large numbers of Muslim migrants and refugees. According to statistics, 92 percent of all severe rapes (violent rapes) are committed by migrants and refugees. 100 percent of all attack rapes (where victim and attacker had no previous contact) are committed by that same group.

The top-10 list of rapists’ national background shows only one non-Islamic country (Chile). Most rapists have Iraqi background, followed by refugees and migrants from Afghanistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Syria, Gambia, Iran, Palestine, Chile and Kosovo. Migrants and refugees from Afghanistan are 79 times more likely to commit rape than Swedes.

The same pattern is seen all over Western Europe, and in many places, it has an impact on demographics in public spaces. Just like in Islamic countries, many countries with a high number of Muslim migrants have fewer women than men on the streets….

Sweden’s national bureau for statistics, BRÅ ‘s report also shows, that not only women, but also children, should be aware of the increased danger of rape and other sexual crimes.

According to BRÅ, 43 percent of rape victims are children.  News10

Pediatrician: How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field And Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse

Michelle Cretella, M.D. is president of the American College of Pediatricians.

She criticized the transition-affirming view that holds children who “consistently and persistently insist” that they are not the gender they were born with are innately transgender.

Cretella said that such a view leads parents to put their children on puberty blockers, to give them cross-sex hormones, eventually leading to genital reassignment surgeries.

The pediatrician warned that despite the acceptance of this movement in the media, plenty of institutions and professionals in the field disagree with what she described as a “deeply flawed narrative.”

Cretella then listed what she said were eight different factual statements that counter the transition-affirming view, which can be read in full in the The Daily Signal article.

Among them, she notes studies that prove that no one is born “trapped in the body of the wrong sex,” and that puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones carry dangerous health risks.

“The crux of the matter is that while the transition-affirming movement purports to help children, it is inflicting a grave injustice on them and their nondysphoric peers,” Cretella stressed.

“Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex, sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage,” she added, insisting that all this creates “institutionalized child abuse.”

Earlier in June a sepearate report written by three well-respected medical experts and scholars also questioned decisions that place children under “radical” and “experimental” puberty-blocking hormone therapy.

“Psychologists do not understand what causes gender dysphoria in children and adolescents, or how to distinguish reliably between children who will only temporarily express feelings of being the opposite sex from children whose gender dysphoria will be more persistent,” states the report, titled Growing Pains: Problems With Puberty Suppression in Treating Gender Dysphoria, published by quarterly journal The New Atlantis.

“Until much more is known about gender dysphoria, and until controlled clinical trials of puberty suppression are carried out, this intervention should be considered experimental,” it adds.

The experts further warned that regardless of good intentions by physicians and parents, “to expose young people to such treatments is to endanger them.”  Christian Post
