California high school changes mascot to ‘Mighty Arab’

Mighty wahhabi-ish looking Arab. The type that hates infidels. via ‘Mighty Arab’ takes its place at Coachella Valley High.

Coachella Valley High School officially changed its school mascot to “the Mighty Arabs,” Tuesday, after the school board unanimously adopted a new logo that has been approved by an anti-discrimination group.

The new mascot and the name change was unveiled during Tuesday night’s Coachella Valley Unified school board meeting in Thermal. It was approved during closed session.

Because the vote was held in closed session, all discussion occurred behind closed doors. The mascot vote was not on the meeting agenda, so despite it being a hotly debated topic, Tuesday night’s meeting was sparsely attended.

Superintendent Darryl Adams said the district will hold a news conference Sept. 19 to further discuss the switch to the new mascot.

 Why not September 11?

Muslim Uber drivers refusing rides to the blind, just like Muslim cabbies

Though shall not utter the m-word. via Uber sued for allegedly refusing rides to the blind and putting a dog in the trunk – The Washington Post.

An advocacy group for the blind is suing the app-based ride-sharing service Uber, alleging the company discriminates against passengers with service dogs.

The federal civil rights suit filed Tuesday by the California chapter of the National Federation of the Blind cites instances in California and elsewhere when blind Uber customers summoned a car only to be refused a ride once the driver saw them with a service dog. In some cases, drivers allegedly abandoned blind travelers in extreme weather and charged cancellation fees after denying them rides, the complaint said.

The complaint filed in a Northern California District Court cites one instance where a California UberX driver put a service dog in the trunk and refused to pull over when the blind passenger realized where the animal was.

On another occasion a passenger was trying to explain that his dog was not a pet but a service animal when the driver allegedly cursed at him and accelerated abruptly, nearly injuring the dog and striking the passenger’s friend, who is also blind, with an open car door.

The group said it’s aware of more than 30 times blind customers were denied rides in violation of the American with Disabilities Act and California state law.

As a result, blind passengers are confronting unexpected delays and “face the degrading experience of being denied a basic service that is available to all other paying customers,” the complaint said.

Services such as Uber are quickly supplanting traditional taxis, a service blind people rely on due to the limitations of public transportation.

The National Federation of the Blind wants Uber to educate its drivers about disability rights and punish the violators in addition to providing a way for disabled passengers to immediately register complaints when they are refused rides because of service dogs.

Uber has had numerous issues with rape and problematic Muslim drivers, even if the media refuses to use the m-word.

In an unrelated ‘thou shall not utter the m-word’ moment, Army officer told he cannot enter his daughter’s school while wearing a uniform. Why? It might offend some unidentified person. Turns out there is no such policy.

Arabs force California high school to retire nearly 100-Year-Old mascot

More like Muslim Arab complaints. via Coachella Valley Retires Nearly 100-Year-Old ‘Arab’ Mascot Following Complaints.

Coachella Valley High School has retired an Arab mascot the school has used since the 1920s, following complaints from the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) in November that the mascot was stereotypical and offensive.

At Friday’s opening season opening football game, the “bearded, snarling mascot with a large hooked nose who wears a headscarf,” was not present after nearly 100 years of its existence at the school, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The belly dancing genie which would normally appear during half-time was also retired.

The school’s Arab mascot was created nearly a century ago as gesture of recognition towards the desert-like region’s reliance on date farming, which is both a signature crop of the Coachella Valley and a traditionally Middle Eastern crop.

“I think anytime you get a face, anyone’s face and any nationality, and you make it into a caricature, there’s always going to be grounds for discrimination,” said alumnus Rich Ramirez in an interview with local NBC News affiliate in Palm Springs KMIR News 6. Ramirez is working with the school district and the ADC to arrive at a resolution.

Along with the ADC’s request to change the appearance of the Arab mascot, the group had also asked for the school’s “Arab” nickname to be changed, however the school district refused, the Chronicle notes. Steps have reportedly been taken to redesign the mascot’s appearance as well as the Arab face on the school’s logo.

Five designs have reportedly been submitted by the school district to the ADC for their approval. The group has taken the greatest liking so far to a design which depicts “a stoic man with a neatly trimmed beard. His face is partially covered in shadow and he’s wearing a white headscarf emblazoned wit the high school’s initial,  ‘CV,'” writes the Chronicle.

The Coachella Valley School District is reportedly the only district in the nation that the ADC is talking to regarding the issue surrounding a “stereotypical” mascot.


According to recent data there might not even be any Arabs in Coachella:

As Creeping Sharia noted in a 2013 post, Arabs whine over mascot, silent on town’s namesake that bans non-Muslims:

There won’t be a compromise. The Arab/Muslims will get the mascot changed and a hundred years of tradition will be wiped out forever.

At a minimum the compromise should include changing the name of the town from Mecca to something else. After all, Mecca – in real life – symbolizes true discrimination and villainies all non-Muslims as being idolaters and unclean.

Mecca and Madinah are cities of great importance in Islamic tradition, centres of pilgrimage and prayer, sacred places where Muslims are free from the distractions of daily life. The ban on non-Muslim visitors is mentioned in the Qur’an as follows: “Oh you who believe! Truly the idolaters are unclean; so let them not, after this year, approach the Sacred Mosque….” (9:28).

This verse specifically refers to the Grand Mosque in Mecca; later scholars have included Madinah in this ruling as well. The government of Saudi Arabia, which controls access to the holy sites, has decided upon a strict ban on both cities in their entirety.

California: Black convert to Islam killed waging jihad for ISIS in Syria

Almost too hard to make up. A black convert to Islam with the name of Douglas McAuthur McCain is killed waging jihad for ISIS, according to the jihad-waging Free Syrian Army.

If Obama had a son?

via American Douglas McAuthur McCain Dies Fighting for ISIS in Syria – NBC News.com.

Douglas McAuthur McCain, of San Diego, California, was killed over the weekend fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), according to the Free Syrian Army. Photos of McCain’s passport and of his body — which feature a distinctive neck tattoo — have been seen by NBC News. According to an activist linked to the Free Syrian Army who also saw the body and travel document, McCain was among three foreign jihadis fighting with ISIS who died during the battle.

McCain reportedly worked at a Somali restaurant in San Diego – African Spice – and was known around the Masjid Nur mosque, according to an acquaintance.

“He was a normal guy, who was social, open-minded, like to smile always, and always wanted to be a good Muslim,” the acquaintance from the restaurant said.

Killed waging jihad for Allah, he fulfilled his wish to be a good Muslim.

McCain’s online life also painted the picture of a devout Muslim who deeply loved his family – along with Pizza Hut and hip-hop. His likes on Facebook ranged from “Quaran and Hadith” to “The Khilafah in Universe,” “A Way to Paradise” to “Craziest Street Fights,” “The American Comedy Co.” to “The Black Flag.”

“Allah keeps me going day and night. Without Allah, I am no one,” read one photo post. Others took a darker turn – posts featured the black flag of ISIS and other militant propaganda photos. In September 2010, he posted an ominous image: “They are coming back soldiers of Allah.”

A MySpace profile linked to Duale – and with the same images as elsewhere on social media – contains similar messages, with pictures of the sometime rapper striking poses. In one photo, he clutches a Quran. “The quran is all I need in this life of sin,” reads another caption.

When McCain’s Twitter account sprung back into activity on May 13, the messages again spoke of Islam.

“I reverted to Islam 10 years ago and I must say In sha Allah I will never look back the best thing that ever happen to me,” he posted. McCain – or Duale, as he had come to be known – then appeared to strike up online friendships with several self-proclaimed jihadis.

On April 3, McCain retweeted the full English translation of the speech of Abu Muhammad al-Adnani – the spokesman for ISIS.

Soon after, it appears that McCain’s travels took him to Turkey, a common jihadi route into Syria. Three people told NBC News that they met McCain – who they referred to as Duale – three months ago in in the Istanbul neighborhood of Sultanahmet. Two said they met him at the Burger King, where they ate and talked about the NBA.

U.S. officials have said “a small handful” of Americans are believed to be fighting with ISIS. Earlier this month, a new ISIS propaganda video claimed to feature an American citizen. And in July, chilling video emerged purporting to show the first American to carry out a suicide attack in Syria burning his U.S. passport and issuing threats against the West. The video of Moner Mohammad Abusalha, who grew up in Florida, underscored concerns about the flow of foreign fighters to Syria.

On June 9, Duale wrote to an alleged ISIS fighter on Twitter: “I will be joining you guys soon.” He also asked if another self-proclaimed ISIS fighter had made it to “r town” – an apparent reference to Raqqa, the militants’ Syrian stronghold.

Then came another post: “I’m with the brothers now.” Later, he retweeted: “It takes a warrior to understand a warrior. Pray for ISIS.”

His final Twitter post was last Tuesday.

This story, along with all things ISIS, fits every narrative Obama is selling as he continues his coup of America. Topping it all off just days before Obama unilaterally and illegally grants all illegals in the U.S. amnesty, the Father of James Foley beheading suspect ‘was one of Bin Laden’s closest lieutenants’ who helped blow up two American embassies killing 224 in the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.

San Fran Bus Ads Feature Hamas-CAIR’s Convicted Terror Leadership

DSC_1327

Well played, via AFDI Campaign: Hamas-CAIR’s Convicted Terror Leadership on San Francisco Buses | Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs.

The leading Muslim Brotherhood-tied organization in America has deceived the media, cultural and political elites in America for years, to the great peril of the American people. Despite the overwhelming evidence presented in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, the Holy Land foundation trial, the sharia-compliant media has continued to advance Hamas-CAIR’s supremacist agenda, with willing help from all too many law enforcement and government officials.

CAIR’s influence is vast, and growing all the time. Just recently they got ABC Family to drop its projected show Alice In Arabia, solely because it contained some dramatization of the all-too-common phenomenon of child kidnapping by Muslim relatives. For years now, they have prevailed upon Hollywood to downplay or even change the identity of celluloid villains, so that Muslims are never portrayed negatively in films (thus the Muslim terrorists in the novel The Sum of All Fears became neo-Nazis in the movie).

CAIR pressured Brandeis University to rescind an honorary degree it had planned to award to human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It regularly pressures (and usually succeeds) in getting any and every counter-jihad speaker canceled from events. Recently it even tried to bribe the sheriff of Culpepper County, Virginia with $15,000 to get him to cancel a counter-terror training seminar.

Because of this kind of activity, Hamas-CAIR should be shunned by all decent people. But instead, this unsavory gang of thugs is stronger than ever. JP Morgan and ABC are sponsoring their annual banquet this year. And the general silence about their terror-linked background has enabled them to infiltrate the highest levels of the political and cultural spheres.

That’s why my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), is now unveiling a new ad campaign that tells the truth about this Islamic supremacist hate group.

Now more than ever, as CAIR’s influence grows in the media and government, this ad campaign is necessary to raise awareness among the public, to protect people from being taken in by this unsavory and unscrupulous group.

The ad depicts several CAIR officials who have been arrested and convicted of terror-related crimes. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department during the trial of the Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation.

CAIRdiorama32CAIR has a long record of duplicity and deception. Although it has received millions of dollars in donations from foreign Islamic entities, it has not registered as a foreign agent as required by the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), despite spreading Islamic supremacist propaganda within the United States.

Although it presents itself as a civil rights group, CAIR actually has numerous links to Islamic supremacist and jihad groups. CAIR founders Omar Ahmad and Niwad Awad (who still serves as CAIR’s executive director), were present at a Hamas planning meeting in Philadelphia in 1993 where they and other Hamas operatives conspired to raise funds for Hamas and to promote jihad in the Middle East. CAIR has steadfastly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.

Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror:

  • Ghassan Elashi, founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, in 2009 received a 65-year prison sentence for funneling over $12 million from the Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation to the jihad terrorist group Hamas, which is responsible for murdering hundreds of Israeli civilians
  • Mousa Abu Marzook, a former CAIR official, was in 1995 designated by the U.S. government in 1995 as a “terrorist and Hamas leader.” He now is a Hamas leader in Syria.
  • Randall Royer, CAIR’s former civil rights coordinator, in 2004 began serving a 20-year prison sentence for aiding al-Qaida and the Taliban against American troops in Afghanistan and recruiting for Lashkar e-Taiba, the jihadist group responsible for the 2008 Mumbai jihad massacres.
  • Bassem Khafagi, CAIR’s former community relations director, was arrested for involvement with the Islamic Assembly of North America, which was linked to al-Qaida. After pleading guilty to visa and bank fraud charges, Khafagi was deported.
  • Rabih Haddad, a former CAIR fundraiser, was deported for his work with the Global Relief Foundation (which he co-founded), a terror-financing organization.

In 1998 Omar Ahmad, CAIR’s co-founder and longtime Board Chairman, said: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

After he received unwelcome publicity as a result of this statement, Ahmad denied saying it, several years after the fact. However, the original reporter, Lisa Gardiner of the Fremont Argus, stands by her story.

CAIR’s spokesman Ibrahim Hooper once said: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.”

 

California: Muslim Mafia – CAIR, Outs Secret FBI Informant in Jihad Case

Hamas-linked CAIR would rather defend Muslims accused of plotting jihad and killing Americans than defend a Muslim who was willing to expose potential jihadists (i.e., an apostate).

As one commenter mused:

…this looks exactly like what the Italian Mafia was doing from the 1950s through the 1980s. Identifying informants to protect a specific group’s actions, especially in suspect circumstances. Fatima Dadabhoy, senior civil rights attorney for the Los Angeles office of the Council on American–Islamic Relations, noted, “It will come down to what is in the best interest of our community.” One must wonder exactly what he considers a “community?”

The American community, in which terrorism and killing Americans is wrong? Or some extremist Muslim communities, in which terrorism and the killing of Americans is supported and praised?

01n.CAIR.p0901rv

Last week it was reported that, Former Inland defendants now expected to testify for government:

Tuesday, [U.S. District Judge Virginia] Phillips said she was concerned that a protective order had been violated when an amount allegedly paid to secret FBI informant in the case had made its way into a news release from the Council on American-Islamic Relations-LA – the local office of a national Islamic rights organization.

The organization said in the release it was seeking information about the informant, and an attorney for the group said CAIR-LA “can’t say/we won’t” expose the identity of that person, if it comes across verifiable information.

And this week the evidence that Hamas-CAIR has fully infiltrated the U.S. government and exposed an FBI informant, via TERROR TRIAL: Informant ID’d in Inland conspiracy case – Press Enterprise.

Nine days after an Islamic terrorists rights group [CAIR] called for help to identify the undercover FBI informant in an Inland terrorism conspiracy case, his name was mentioned in open court Tuesday.

In Gaza, CAIR’s brother organization Hamas does what CAIR can’t quite do here in the U.S. yet: Hamas gunmen have executed at least 17 suspected informants.

Jeffrey A. Aaron, a deputy federal public defender representing Sohiel Omar Kabir, 36, of Pomona, asked about the status of the informant before testimony resumed in the trial before U.S. Distict Judge Virginia Phillips in Riverside Federal Court.

Aaron posed his question in court, outside the jury’s presence.

Aaron identified the informant as Mohammad Hammad, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Susan De Witt confirmed the name when shown a 2002 federal criminal drug case with Hammad named with 41 other defendants.

De Witt told Phillips on Tuesday that Hammad was hospitalized with an undisclosed condition and may face surgery. She declined to give additional details after the court hearing.

The Los Angeles office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (LA-CAIR) claimed the informant was used to entrap the defendants, and issued a public appeal Aug. 10 for help in identifying him, saying he was paid more than $356,645 by the government for his work.

Without being identified, Hammad had earlier been described by defense attorneys in court papers as a convicted drug felon who should have been deported for his offense. Filings did not mention his country of origin.

Court records show Hammad was sentenced in Los Angeles Federal Court on Aug. 2, 2007, to 42 months of prison and five years of supervised release for possession of pseudoephederine with knowledge that it would be used to make methamphetamine.

“It is interesting that his name has been revealed, we will see if other information is generated from this,” said Fatima Dadabhoy, senior civil rights attorney for LA-CAIR.

“We understand when informants are important to use, but when they become agent-provocateurs, that becomes a problem,” said Dadabhoy.

The government has said the payment amount claimed by LA-CAIR was misleading, because the Kabir case was not the only one for which Hammad was being paid.

It’s not clear whether Hammad will testify in the Inland case.

“We are waiting to see if we need to call him at all,” De Witt told Phillips on Tuesday . Hammad is believed to be 41 years old, based on previous trial testimony.

Government prosecutors said the alleged plot by the case’s four original defendants to travel to Afghanistan in the late fall of 2012, join al-Qaida and kill American service personnel was a serious endeavor that began in 2010. It was well underway, they said, before the informant infiltrated the group in February 2012.

Kabir, along with Ralph Deleon, 25, of Ontario, are on trial on five conspiracy counts that allege they plotted along with Arifeen David Gojali, 23, of Riverside and Miguel Santana, 23, of Upland to join the Taliban and al-Qaida and “engage in violent jihad” against American military personnel and bases overseas.

One report stated Gojali and Santana have plead guilty, another stated they were no longer listed on the indictment. Multiple sources stated they would testify against the remaining two jihadis:

Two Inland men who faced charges in a homegrown terrorism case are now expected to testify against the two remaining defendants on trial in Riverside Federal Court for conspiracies that include plotting to murder Americans overseas.

 

The disclosure came Tuesday as defense attorney Jeffrey A. Aaron complained during a morning court session to U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips that prosecutors waited until the last minute to give him a large file of recorded jailhouse conversations and emails generated by Arifeen David Gojali of Riverside and Miguel Santana of Upland.

 

New York is top U.S. city with “known or suspected terrorists”

You already know #2 on the list from yesterday’s post about Dearborn, Michigan and Jihad Watch had the top 5 from the same report:

The top five U.S. cities represented on the main watchlist for “known or suspected terrorists” are New York; Dearborn, Mich.; Houston; San Diego; and Chicago. At 96,000 residents, Dearborn is much smaller than the other cities in the top five, suggesting that its significant Muslim population—40 percent of its population is of Arab descent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau—has been disproportionately targeted for watchlisting. Residents and civil liberties advocates have frequently argued the Muslim, Arab and Sikh communities in and around Dearborn are unfairly targeted by invasive law enforcement probes, unlawful profiling, and racism.

“New York” is a state so it’s not quite clear if that refers to just Manhattan, or other boroughs overflowing with Hamas and jihad supporting Muslims including Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island and possibly portions of New Jersey (e.g., the known Muslim terror hotspot Jersey City).
