Islamization of Europe Movement In Germany

“Disenchanted German citizens and right-wing extremists are joining forces to form a protest movement to fight what they see as the Islamization of the West. Is this the end of the long-praised tolerance of postwar Germany?”

dresdenanti-immigrationprotestsGermany is the world’s second most popular destination for immigrants.  In a current Spiegell poll 34 percent of citizens agreed that Germany is becoming increasingly Islamicized.  The number of right wing protests in Germany are on the rise nationwide.  In Dresden protests are staged each Monday with the number of citizens taking to the street increasing.  “The group, which calls itself Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (and goes by the German acronym PEGIDA), demonstrates against economic migrants and a supposed “cultural foreign domination of our country”

German officials have become alarmed.  “But the interior ministers failed to develop a convincing plan to effectively combat the problem. ‘We cannot label 10,000 people as right-wing extremists. That creates more problems than it solves,” says Saxony Interior Minister Markus Ulbig, a member of the center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU). According to Ulbig, there were many “middle-class citizens” among the Dresden demonstrators, “and you can’t toss them all into the same Neo-Nazi pot.'”…

The demonstrators aren’t exactly making it easy for German authorities. Since the riots in Cologne, they have generally taken great pains to avoid committing prosecutable offences during the weekly protests, or being seen as too obviously in league with right-wing extremists.

Harvard President Asks For Probe Into Dining Services SodaStream Boycott

7200948100_72b039259f_q_HarvardUpdate:  Harvard dining services backtracks on decision to pull Israeli made soda equipment.

“We value and regularly seek input on a wide range of issues from members of the community who use HUDS facilities. In this instance, we mistakenly factored political concerns raised by students on a particularly sensitive issue into a decision on soda machines,” said Crista Martin, a spokesperson from HUDS, in a statement sent to Boston. “As the President and Provost have made clear, our procurement decisions should not be driven by community members’ views on matters of political controversy.” BostonMag

Harvard President Drew Faust was not informed of the dining services at Harvard to boycott SodaStream products.  After reading about the  boycott in the newspaper Faust has asked for an investigation into the decision by dining services to boycott an Israeli product at Harvard.

Harvard University’s dining service decided to halt buying SodaStream equipment in April and has removed labels from soda machines in its facilities following protests by Palestinian students and their supporters.

The dining service agreed to remove the SodaStream labels on existing water machines and purchase new ones from American companies after university officials met in April with members of the Harvard College Palestine Solidarity Committee and the Harvard Islamic Society, the newspaper reported Wednesday.

“Harvard University’s procurement decisions should not and will not be driven by individuals’ views of highly contested matters of political controversy,” Garber wrote in an email statement to the Crimson late Wednesday night. “If this policy is not currently known or understood in some parts of the university, that will be rectified now.”

Garber said in the statement that neither he nor Faust was aware of the decision before reading about it in the newspaper. Read More At Times of Israel

 

Bill Whittle: We Are Number Two Economically

number2witheyesRecently, China overtook the United States as the largest Economy in the World.  The USA economy has been derailed by the current White House administration by redistribution, irresponsible fiscal policies, higher taxes, over regulation mostly by the EPA.

CNS News found the “Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued 3,120 new final regulations, equaling 27,854 pages in the Federal Register, totaling approximately 27,854,000 words.”   Last week the EPA slammed the coal industry with massive regulation “which has got coal-fired power plant operators fuming. The coal ash rule not only comes with a hefty $735 million per year price tag, but the coal industry also argues it creates lots of uncertainty for plant operators”, reported the Daily Caller.

The current White House administration is exporting record amounts of coal, gasoline and diesel; especially to Panama and China. “That’s because the U.S. is sending more dirty fuel than ever to other parts of the world, where efforts to address the resulting pollution are just getting underway, if advancing at all. While the exported fuel has gotten cleaner, in the case of diesel, about 20 percent of the exports are too dirty to burn here.”  ABC News – Fuel to the Fire?

IRS Scandal Report: IRS Targeted ‘Icky’ Conservative Groups

Lois Lerner

Top IRS officials specifically targeted conservative political party groups and religious groups and misled the public about its targeting program led by ex-official Lois Lerner, according to a new House Oversight and Government Reform Committee congressional report.

“The Committee has identified eight senior leaders who were in a position to prevent or to stop the IRS’s targeting of conservative applicants,” the Oversight report states. “Each of these leaders could have and should have done more to prevent the IRS’s targeting of conservative tax-exempt applicants.”

Here are six major takeaways from the report:

1. The IRS admitted that the front office was “spinning” about the targeting rumors as early as 2012, after IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman denied the tea party targeting to Congress.

“This is what the front office and [IRS Chief of Communications and Liaison] Frank [Keith] are spinning about now,” an IRS legislative affairs office employee wrote in an email to co-workers, referring to a news article on Shulman’s dishonest testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee, in which he denied rumors of improper targeting.

2. Then-IRS commissioner Steven T. Miller almost broke down and told the truth about the tea party targeting at a July 2012 hearing, but Lerner’s sidekick Nikole Flax told him not to.  Read More at the Daily Caller

4 of 6 ‘Million Marchers Protesters’ Arrested

Update:  Eric Linsker (CUNY Professor) has been relieved of his teaching duties.

“Queens College determined that it was in the best interests of its students, after consultation with University administration and legal counsel, to relieve Mr. Linsker of teaching duties,” Rodriguez wrote to faculty and students.

“Other faculty has been assigned to teach in Mr. Linsker’s place.”  NYDailyNews

4 of the 6  ‘Million Marchers protesters’  in Brooklyn wanted for assaulting two police officers have been arrested.  “The six suspects allegedly prevented police from arresting a protester, later identified as another academic, Baruch College Professor Eric Linsker, who had thrown a garbage can at two lieutenants during the mayhem,” reported the New York Post.

 

    1. Cindy Gorn (Grad student at Columbia University)
  1. Zachary Campbell (Rutgers University grad student and Spanish instructor)
  2. Robert Murray (SEIU staff member now on unpaid leave) . He was arraigned on charges of assault on a police officer, inciting to riot, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.
  3. Eric Linsker (CUNY Professor) was charged with assault in the second degree, rioting in the first degree, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest and unlawful possession of marijuana, reports CBS New York.   He had a backpack with hammers in it.  Police and prosecutors claim he incited a riot leading to protesters beating up two police lieutenants, reports CBS News.

Those Who Incite Violence Under The Guise Of Protest

I expect to hear that the executions of two the NYPD police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjin Liu, were not about Ferguson or New York. That it is a larger problem and that people are making misleading connections.  That the professional agitators message has been one of ‘non-violence’.

The execution of the two NYPD police officers was a political assassination. Those who stood in front of microphones stirring up emotions by finessing facts, deliberately agitating hatred, stirring up hatred for the police, implying police are racists will seek to deny a connection.

One week ago Al Sharpton’s ‘Million Marchers’ protest in Brooklyn, the same borough where the officers were assassinated, chanted, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”

The same Al Sharpton, in the summer of 1991, led a three day race riot against Jews in the Crown Heights neighborhood after a car driven by an Orthodox Jew was involved in an accident that tragically killed a young black child.  Murdered in the ensuing riots was a young Jewish man Yankel Rosenbaum and a man of Italian descent Anthony Graziosi  who was mistaken for a Hasidic Jew.

Led by  Bassem Masri, a Palestinian, the Ferguson ‘Protesters’ were out Saturday chanting ‘Pigs In A Blanket”.  Which refers to a instagram post by the killer Ismail Brinsley, ‘This May Be My Final Post. I’m Putting Pigs In A Blanket.’

Fatally Killed NY Police Officers: Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos

nypdblackribbonUpdate: Yankees to pay for police officers children’s education.

George Steinbrenner’s Yankee Silver Shield Foundation has, for 32 years, provided for the education of the children of New York City cops, firefighters and Port Authority employees who were killed in the line.

For 32 years, Steinbrenner’s Yankee Silver Shield Foundation has provided for the education of the children of New York City police officers, firemen and Port Authority employees who died in the line of duty, and will do so for the family of NYPD officer Rafael Ramos, gunned down by a cold-blooded killer Saturday along with his partner, Wenjian Liu, the NY Daily News reported.

The foundation will pay for the education of Ramos’ son, 13-year-old Jaden, and another son who is in college.

The two NY police officers fatally killed in a targeted attack were Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.  Wenjian Liu was married only two months ago.

Rafael Ramos was married and had  a 13-year-old son and a son in college.  Ramos had celebrated his 40th birthday on December 12.  Officer Ramos “was just one hour away from graduating from a volunteer chaplain program when he died, according to the interfaith organization which trained him. Officer Rafael Ramos,… had spent ten weeks studying to become a certified chaplain with the New York State Chaplain Task Force, according to the group’s president, Rev. Marcos Miranda, ‘ reports NBC News.

2 NYPD Officers Fatally Shot ‘Execution Style’ As ‘Revenge’ For Garner

policedepartmentnypdTwo NY police officers were sitting in their patrol car when they were fatally killed execution style  by gunman Ismail Brinsley.  The gunman killed himself.  The New York Daily News is reporting,
hours earlier Brinsley reportedly shot his girlfriend in Baltimore. He boasted on social media about wanting to kill cops- ‘They Take 1 Of Ours… Let’s Take 2 of Theirs.’  Brinsley is  believed to be part of the Black Guerrilla Family, a black guerrilla militant group that threatened to shoot on duty police officers.

Silence from de Blaiso and other government officials who do not hesitate to rush statements out in support of criminals and encourage professional agitator organizations that promote lawlessness and violence — but silence when Police Officers are killed execution style sitting in their patrol car!

Many are blaming the murder of two NY police officers on Mayor de Blasio’s support for protesters in cases that had nothing to do with race but instead was about people and their own choices and behaviors. The Daily Mail reports, “Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik said, ‘De Blasio, Sharpton and all those who encouraged this anti-cop, racist mentality all have blood on their hands.'”

Brooklyn Assemblywoman Malliotakis issued the following statement to Mayor DeBlasio:

“I am horrified that two of our police officers were fatally shot today in Brooklyn. My heart breaks for their families, their NYPD family, and our entire city, which appears to have descended dangerously close to turmoil.

It is well past the time for our mayor and citywide leaders to call for a return to order in our streets, and take a hard stance that that lawlessness and aggression towards police officers will not be tolerated. Extreme anti-police sentiment and public unruliness have been permitted to fester for far too long,” said Assemblywoman Malliotakis (R,C,I-Brooklyn/Staten Island).

Study: Police Hesitate More Before Shooting Black Than White Suspects

Reality checkA Washington University innovative experiment included civilians, military personal, and police officers, the findings were that police officers are less likely to erroneously shoot unarmed black suspects than they were unarmed whites.

Dr. Lois James, a research assistant professor with the university’s Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology who headed the study “emphasizes that the officer participants had no reason to believe they were being tested for racial or ethnic bias. The issue of suspect race or ethnicity was not raised during the officers’ preparation, and no Ferguson-like, racially charged event was recently in the news that might have overly sensitized them to that concern.”

A scientific study from Washington State University-Spokane suggests just the opposite. In truth, according to findings from the research team’s innovative experiments:

• Officers were less likely to erroneously shoot unarmed black suspects than they were unarmed whites — 25 times less likely, in fact

• And officers hesitated significantly longer before shooting armed suspects who were black, compared to armed subjects who were white or Hispanic

“In sum,” writes Dr. Lois James, a research assistant professor with the university’s Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology who headed the study, “this research found that participants displayed significant bias favoring Black suspects” in their shooting decisions. Read More at PoliceOne

A Letter From An Angry Black Woman To the Students for Justice in Palestine

sjpChloe Valday does not approve of the student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) masquerades as though it were a civil rights group.

The SJP is a student organization that grew out of the pro-terrorist organization  General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS) that began in Egypt (Yasser Arafat was a member).  It promotes theatrical and physical violence with its  campaign of hate against Jews and Israel.  Northeastern University in Boston, MA suspended the organization Students for Justice in Palestine Chapter until 2015 “after years of anti-Semitic vandalism, glorification of terrorist groups, calls for the destruction of Israel, and other actions by NU SJP’s leadership, all of which have created a hostile learning environment for Jewish pro-Israel students on campus.”

The student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is prominent on many college campuses, preaching a mantra of “Freeing Palestine.” It masquerades as though it were a civil rights group when it is not. Indeed, as an African-American, I am highly insulted that my people’s legacy is being pilfered for such a repugnant agenda. It is thus high time to expose its agenda and lay bare some of the fallacies they peddle.

• If you seek to promulgate the legacy of early Islamic colonialists who raped and pillaged the Middle East, subjugated the indigenous peoples living in the region, and foisted upon them a life of persecution and degradation—you do not get to claim the title of “Freedom Fighter.”

• If you support a racist doctrine of Arab supremacism and wish (as a corollary of that doctrine) to destroy the Jewish state, you do not get to claim that the prejudices you peddle are forms of legitimate “resistance.”

• If your heroes are clerics who sit in Gaza plotting the genocide of a people; who place their children on rooftops in the hopes they will get blown to bits; who heap praises upon their fellow gang members when they succeed in murdering Jewish school boys and bombing places of activity where Jews congregate—you do not get to claim that you are some Apollonian advocate of human virtue. You are not. Read More at Tablet Mag

UN: Promotes the Elimination of Israel

unnakbaexhibitFrom November 24, 2014 until December 5, 2014,  the UN Human Rights Council public exhibit  at their headquarters in Geneva promoted the elimination of Israel.  A clear example of how disgraceful and pathetic the UN is and its true agenda-promoting and inciting hatred and the elimination of Israel.

Incitement against the Jewish state is directly related to the stabbings, raping and killing of Jews inside and outside of Israel. But doing something to stop it requires confronting a very troubling fact: the global epicenter for incitement is the “human rights” leviathan, the United Nations.

From November 24, 2014 until December 5, 2014, UN human rights headquarters in Geneva mounted a public exhibit that was pure incitement. UN-driven antisemitism that takes the form of seeking to demonize, disable and ultimately destroy the Jewish state.

The exhibit was entitled: “La Nakba: Exode et Expulsion des Palestiniens en 1948” – or “The Nakba: Exodus and Expulsion of the Palestinians in 1948.” The occasion was the annual UN Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. Solidarity Day marks the adoption by the General Assembly on November 29, 1947 of the resolution that approved the partitioning of Palestine into an Arab and a Jewish state.

The partition resolution was rejected by Arab states and celebrated by the Jewish people. Thus the Arab war to deny Israel’s right to exist began.

But in 2014, the UN overtly jettisoned the usual diplomatic lie that the 1967 occupation is the root cause of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The exhibit focused on the alleged crime of creating a Jewish state in 1948 and openly justified the rejection of the partition resolution.

The display was located in the UN’s Palais des Nations just outside the home room of the UN Human Rights Council. It consisted of 13 panels in French and an accompanying catalogue with English reproductions of each item. The catalogue was distributed by UN conference services.

It turns out that the highly controversial exhibit has been circulating in churches and community centers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland since April 2008.  Sought-after hosts like the City of Dusseldorf and the city library in Freiburg have refused the exhibit, which has also been formally criticized by the Mayor of Cologne.
