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

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.

Indiana: Three Columbus churches vandalized with Koranic terror verse

The cowards at Fox couldn’t even mention it was Islamic hate graffiti in the title of the post? via Columbus community condemns graffiti left on three local churches | Fox 59. h/t Atlas

COLUMBUS, Ind. (Aug. 31, 2014) — Three Columbus churches are hit by graffiti artists, who left a message that many are questioning.

The graffiti artist tagged the outside of the churches with specific chapters and verses from the Quran. The vandalism is being condemned by members of the Islamic religion and the entire community.

The word “infidels” and “Qur’an 3:151″ were written in black spray paint on the front and side of St. Bartholomew Catholic Church.

“It’s upsetting to people, certainly because we have a beautiful church, but also because what is the message if there is a message? Because, there’s just not a whole lot to go on,” said Father Doug Marcotte, Associate Pastor for St. Bartholomew Catholic Church.

Fr. Marcotte thinks it happened sometime between Saturday night and before Sunday church services. It was discovered, but quickly removed. Though there are still a lot of questions as to why “infidels”, and why the Quran.

“What are you trying to say, and are you just trying to be mean,” asked Fr. Marcotte.

Similar graffiti was cleaned off the front of Lakeview Church of Christ in Columbus. No specific mention of the Quran here, but “infidels” and another word were spray painted by the front door.

“Qur’an 19:88″ and “infidels” were left on two spots of East Columbus Christian Church during that same time period.

Taqiyya struck out.

“We condemn this, and I read the verse, most importantly what that showed me is the ignorance who actually misquoted or misinterpreted the Quran,” said Nassim Khaled, a resident of Columbus who volunteers at the Islamic Center.

As Pamela at Atlas Shrugs commented, “Misquoted??? The Muslim who vandalized the churches was citing Quran verse numbers. How can that be a “misquoting”? It’s a bloody number of a Quran verse.”

Khaled says the important thing to realize is reading the verses, that were spray painted on the buildings, alone, can make them sound scary. In his eyes, they’re actually far from that. Khaled met with members of that East Columbus Christian Church to show togetherness.

“We show our support, we actually want to come and clean this mess with our friends and neighbors of the church,” he said.

The “mess” was already cleaned, but why did Fox run to the Islamic Center? Did they ask the them to tell their Muslim constituents to come forward with information? No, they made this into a feel-good, Muslims are the good guys story. Cultural suicide before our very eyes folks.

Police have been notified, and one of the churches actually had a surveillance camera nearby. They hope that’ll provide some clue as to who did this.

Here’s the quote from the Koran:

003.151
YUSUFALI: Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be the Fire: And evil is the home of the wrong-doers!
PICKTHAL: We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve because they ascribe unto Allah partners, for which no warrant hath been revealed. Their habitation is the Fire, and hapless the abode of the wrong-doers.
SHAKIR: We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they set up with Allah that for which He has sent down no authority, and their abode is the fire, and evil is the abode of the unjust.

 

 

Court Rules in Favor of Muslim Mob Violence in Dearborn, Against Free Speech

Freedom has left the building. And been replaced with sharia law.

An absolutely huge victory for the sharia and will result in much more Muslim mob violence (aka JIHAD) and we predict the death not only of free speech but of non-Muslims who exercise free speech speaking against Islam. via Court Rules Against Christians in Arab Festival Case – CBN News

A federal appeals court ruled against a group of Christian evangelists who were forced to leave an Arab-American street festival in Dearborn, Michigan, in 2012.

Festival-goers threw rocks and water bottles at members of the Bible Believers group when they denounced Islam and called Mohammed a false prophet.

In response, Wayne County authorities threatened to ticket the Christian group if they did not leave.

On Wednesday, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals backed county authorities, ruling 2-1 that police were only trying to keep public order.

“The video from the 2012 festival demonstrates that (evangelists’) speech and conduct intended to incite the crowd to turn violent. … Although robustly guarded by the First Amendment, religious conduct remains subject to regulation for the protection of society,” the three-judge panel wrote in its ruling.

But one dissenting judge said the police should have tried to control the lawbreakers rather than stifle free speech.

“The First Amendment protects plaintiffs’ speech, however bilious it was,” Judge Eric Clay wrote in his 11-page dissent. “The majority … provides a blueprint for the next police force that wants to silence speech without having to go through the burdensome process of law enforcement. I expect we will see this case again.”

From the American Freedom Law Center legal team: Divided Sixth Circuit Panel Issues “Dangerously Wrong” Opinion, Allowing Muslim Violence to Trump the First Amendment

Muise commented:

“The Sixth Circuit’s ruling is an unprecedented blow to the First Amendment.  As Judge Clay stated quite accurately in his dissent, this decision is ‘dangerously wrong.’  But this fight is far from over.  We will be filing a petition for en banc (full court) review of this important First Amendment case within the next two weeks.  And if that petition is not granted, we will seek review in the U.S. Supreme Court.”

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added:

This decision is quite troubling and indeed dangerous, particularly in light of the fact that Muslim violence is escalating around the globe and here at home.  The fact that the court’s decision rewards and thus encourages such violence as a legitimate means of suppressing speech that is critical of Islam jeopardizes the constitutional safeguards that our Founding Fathers fought so hard to establish.  And more problematic is the fact that this decision, if allowed to stand, will do more to encourage Muslim violence than anything our Christian clients ever said.”

Support AFLC, you may need them one day soon.

Florida: 2 Muslims arrested after bar fight, threatened to “kidnap an American and behead him”

via 2 arrested after starting bar fight, making threats, Volusia cops say. h/t Atlas

Screen-Shot-2014-09-01-at-4.12.58-PM Screen-Shot-2014-09-01-at-4.15.33-PM

ORMOND BEACH, Fla. – Two men are facing charges after Volusia County deputies said they started a fight at a bar Wednesday night.

Staff at the Jus’ Beachy Bar on Ocean Shore Boulevard claimed they refused to serve alcohol to 54-year-old Faisal Albagdadi and 30-year-old Ahmed Hindi after they walked into the bar already drunk.

“I need cops at Jus’ Beachy Pecker’s Pub immediately. I got a huge fight going. I mean they’re tearing (expletive) up,” the caller told 911 dispatchers. “We wouldn’t even serve him when he came in, he was so drunk.”

Deputies said that’s when the men got angry and attacked the customers.

“They’re using chairs and everything else,” the caller told dispatchers.

Deputies said the men smashed six bar stools, threw several glasses that cut one woman in the eye and beat up a couple of men. At one point, the fight got so out of control, the dispatcher couldn’t get a hold of the caller.

The men took off before deputies arrived, but the caller was able to get their tag number and the description of their car. Ormond Beach police then quickly tracked down the car and arrested the men.

The arrest report showed that not only did Hindi deny initiating the bar fight, deputies said Albagdadi was uncooperative and threatened to “kidnap an American and behead him, once he’s released from jail.”

Both men face criminal mischief and battery charges. The other customers were not seriously injured. However, the men allegedly caused more than $1,200 in damage.

Albagdadi was previously arrested on Aug. 23 for drunk driving charges.

 Why wasn’t he charged with making a terrorist threat? Because the blockers and tacklers (CAIR) for groups like ISIS have ensured that local cops aren’t taught about the jihad threat that Muslims pose.

 

Carter tells Muslims: ‘use principals of Allah to bring peace and justice to all’

DETROIT — Former President Jimmy Carter said today that Muslim Americans should use their religious principals to support peace and justice efforts for all.

Carter delivered the keynote address at Saturday’s Islamic Society of North America convention at Cobo Center, where he also spoke about his foundation’s work in the Middle East.

“We are all Americans in a system that allows basic human rights: peace, justice and the ability to treat each other as equals,” Carter told the attendees of a fundraiser luncheon. “I hope all of you will use the principals of Allah to bring peace and justice to all.”

No &^%ing thanks. The principles of Allah are exactly what Hamas, ISIS, CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, al Shabaab, Abu Sayaff, MILF, FSA and every other Islamic group are using to try and bring Islamic justice to all. It must be fought.

We now have a current president and at least one former president openly working with designated Islamic terrorist groups and promoting Islam.

 

Islamic militia says it has ‘secured’ US compound in Libya

Just one more reason Obama could and should be tried for high crimes and misdemeanors.

via Islamic militia group says it has ‘secured’ US compound in Libya

An Islamic militant group said Sunday it has “secured” a U.S. Embassy compound in Libya’s capital city of Tripoli.

American personnel evacuated the area roughly a month ago amid ongoing fighting in the country.

An Associated Press journalist walked through the compound Sunday after the Dawn of Libya, an umbrella group for Islamist militias, invited onlookers inside.

Windows at the compound had been broken, but it appeared most of the equipment there remained untouched.

A commander for the Dawn of Libya group said his forces had entered and been in control of the compound since last week.

Fox News as of late Sunday morning has not been able to independently confirm the group’s claim.

No U.S. military or assets were guarding the property after the State Department pulled out.

On Sept. 11, 2012, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, and State Department information management officer Sean Smith were killed in a terror attack on a U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya.

A video posted online showed men playing in a pool at the compound. In a message on Twitter, U.S. Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones said the video appeared to have been shot in at the embassy’s residential annex.

However, two sources with first-hand knowledge of the embassy and other U.S. facilities in Libya say the YouTube video in which the militia members are diving from a roof into pool was taken at the CIA annex in Tripoli that was abandoned when U.S. Embassy personnel and the ambassador pulled out July 26. It is about a mile away from the U.S. Embassy in Libya.

When CIA abandoned the annex in July, it would no longer be considered sovereign US territory.

Jones also said the compound appears to be “safeguarded,” not “ransacked.”

The fighting prompted diplomats and thousands of Tripoli residents to flee. Dozens were killed in the fighting.

On July 26, U.S. diplomats evacuated to neighboring Tunisia under a U.S. military escort. The State Department said embassy operations would be suspended until the security situation improved.

The Dawn of Libya militia is deployed around the capital and has called on foreign diplomats to return now that the fighting has subsided.

In case you were wondering:

the newly elected parliament described the Dawn of Libya militias as “outlawed” and “terrorist groups” who fight to undermine the legitimacy of the state.

Coincidentally or not, just weeks ago, Ansar al Sharia, allies seize Libyan special forces base in Benghazi.

Smart power!!
