Defending Freedom of Speech…in America

via Defending Freedom of Speech.

Freedom of speech is under threat today. Not only in Europe, where I come from. But also here, in America.

The last time I was in the United States was less than two weeks ago. I was in Garland, Texas, where I gave the keynote speech at a contest of Muhammad cartoons.

The contest was held in a conference center, where after the Paris Charlie Hebdo assassinations, an Islamic organization had convened to demand that freedom of speech be restricted and Muhammad cartoons be forbidden. The Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland was organized to make a stand against this demand. We should never allow ourselves to be intimidated.

The winner of the Garland contest was a former Muslim. There was something very symbolic about the fact that he was an apostate. Under Islamic Sharia law, apostasy is punishable by death. Under the same law, making illustrations of the prophet Muhammad is also punishable by death.

The winner of the contest had made a picture of a fierce looking Muhammad, waving a sword. “You cannot draw me,” Muhammad said. Underneath the picture, the artist had written: “That is exactly why I am drawing you!”

That is the true American spirit. This cartoonist is an example to us all.

Under Islamic Sharia law, depicting Muhammad is a crime. But as an American, the artist is not living in an Islamic country. He is living in America. And here, in America, you are allowed to make pictures and drawings, no matter what the Sharia says. And you are also allowed to change your religion and become an apostate. And we should allow no one ever to rob us of these freedoms. If America were to give in to Islamic law, it would no longer be America. Its Judeo-Christian values would be lost. Its civilization would be lost. Its freedoms would be lost.

The enemies of our civilization try to impose Sharia law on us. Barely a few minutes after I had given my speech in Garland, two jihadis attacked the event. They shot a police officer in the leg, but fortunately they were killed before they could do more harm. Through violence and terrorism, these two jihadis tried to impose Sharia law on America. Thanks to brave American policemen, they did not succeed.

We should never allow the terrorists to win. Continue reading

Senate Dems tell Obama to resettle 65,000 Syrian Muslim refugees

Refugees displaced by Obama, to be “resettled” into your neighborhoods, on your tax dollar, to rob your children’s futures. via Senate Dems call on Obama to resettle 65,000 Syrian refugees | TheHill.

A group of Senate Democrats is urging the Obama administration to allow at least 65,000 Syrian refugees to settle inside the United States.

“While the United States is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees, we must also dramatically increase the number of Syrian refugees that we accept for resettlement,” the group of 14 lawmakers — led by Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) — said Thursday.

The group letter noted the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) wants to resettle 130,000 Syrian refugees over the next two years and has thus far submitted more than 12,000 resettlement cases to the United States for consideration.

However, only 700 have been let into the U.S. since the Syrian conflict began nearly five years ago, “an unacceptably low number,” the senators say.

“Following the international community’s tragic failure to shelter Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi genocide, the United States played a leadership role in establishing the international legal regime for the protection of refugees,” they wrote. “In keeping with this history, we urge your Administration to work to accept at least 50 percent of Syrian refugees whom UNHCR is seeking to resettle, consistent with our nation’s traditional practice under both Republican and Democratic presidents.”

On the same day, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) called the resettlement effort a “serious mistake” because of the security risks it poses.

The U.S. could resettle around 2,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year and potentially thousands more in fiscal 2016 under the State Department-led effort. The Department of Homeland Security would have the authority to approve the admissions.

Senate Democrats stressed that the conflict has displaced half of Syria’s 23 million people and that countries like Lebanon, with a populace of 4.2 million, has taken in 1.2 million refugees.

Senators concluded by saying “it is a moral, legal, and national security imperative for the United States to lead by example in addressing the world’s worst refugee crisis of our time by greatly increasing the number of Syrian refugees who are resettled in our country.”


It is Obama who keeps funding, training and arming Syrian jihadists. It is Obama who is fomenting war in Syria. Syrians are displaced because of Obama.

Obama and the Senate Democrats should each be required to take in and financially support – for their entire stay – the Syrian Muslims they import.

 

Suspended, Terror-linked Canadian Homeland Security Advisor Invited By US Govt to Conference on Terrorism

via Suspended Candian Homeland Security Advisor Invited By US Government To Conference On Extremism; Hussein Hamdan Has His Own Extremist Ties.

Canadian media is reporting that an advisor to a Canadian agency similar to the US Department of Homeland Security who was suspended over controversial ties has been invited by  the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of National Security to speak at a conference on fighting violent extremism. According to a CBC report:

May 23, 2015 The Canadian government might not want him anymore, but the department of Homeland Security still wants to hear what Hussein Hamdani has to say about deradicalization.

The Hamilton lawyer was suspended as an adviser on Muslim issues and security for the federal government earlier this month. But now, officials from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of National Security have invited him to speak at a conference on fighting violent extremism.

So in July, Hamdani will be heading to Washington, DC to advise government officials at the local, state and federal levels – even though he’s been suspended from doing so in his own country.

‘This is consistent with what I have been saying all along: I have been vetted already, multiple times by CSIS and RCMP as well as U.S. security agencies,’ Hamdani told CBC News.

‘Thankfully, the Americans are not playing politics’

Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney’s office is looking into questions raised by the French TVA network about politically charged statements it alleges Hamdani made as a university student, and allegations about radical organizations that it says Hamdani had associations with.

Hamdani says he believes the decision is politically motivated because of his support for Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberals. He denies all the allegations outright.

Read the rest here.

Last month, the GMBDW discussed a Point de Bascule blog report that identified Hussein Hamdani’s ties to Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas related organizations and which included:

1) In a guide that was published by the Muslim Students Association in 1996, Hussein Hamdani encouraged Muslim student activists ‘to Islamize campus politics’;

2) In 2003, the Ihya Foundation, an organization led by Hamdani, joined with the Saudi World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) to launch the Reviving the Islamic Spirit conventions in Toronto. In 2012, WAMY’s charitable status was revoked after the Canada Revenue Agency concluded that it funded an Al-Qaeda-linked organization;

3) From 2005 to 2009, two organizations led by Hamdani transferred money to Hamas’ fund collector, IRFAN-Canada. The Canada Revenue Agency revoked IRFAN’s charitable status in 2011 after having concluded that, for the 2005-2009 period alone, it transferred $14.6 million to the terrorist organization Hamas. In April 2014, IRFAN was added to Canada’s list of outlawed terrorist groups.

New Jersey: Muslim who arranged wife’s murder & blamed Islamophobes, gets life sentence

Ain’t Islam grand? via Kashif Parvaiz Sentenced To At Least 73 Years In Wife’s Killing « CBS New York.

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A judge threw the book Thursday at a Brooklyn man who conspired to kill his wife while the couple was on a walk with one of their young sons in New Jersey.

Kashif Parvaiz, who was convicted in February of scheming with his Massachusetts girlfriend to kill his wife and make it look like a random attack, was sentenced to at least 73 years in prison without parole, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported.

The August 2011 shooting occurred while Parvaiz and his wife, 27-year-old Nazish Noorani, walked with their son in Boonton, near Noorani’s family home.

Antoinette Stephen pleaded guilty to murder and other offenses and testified against him. The Billerica resident was having an affair with Parvaiz and has admitted firing the fatal shots.

She faces up to 30 years in prison when she’s sentenced next month.

Parvaiz showed no emotion when his brother-in-law, Kaleem Noorani, called him out as a murderous fiend in court.

“You are a failure as a husband, father, son, as a human being, and above all, you are an evil murderer,” he said.

Parvaiz was shot in the leg and claimed they were targeted in an anti-Muslim attack. But his story unraveled, and Stephen eventually admitted she killed Noorani under orders from Parvaiz.

Investigators recovered the murder weapon from his SUV.

The defense team asked the judge to Parvaiz to 30 years, but prosecutor Matthew Troiano strongly disagreed, calling Parvaiz a coward who endangered his own son.

“He put that little boy into direct harm’s way,” Troiano said. “After your wife is shot, you do nothing. You don’t run to her. You run away.”

At the trial, the prosecution presented evidence that Parvaiz considered other ways to kill his wife, including poisoning her.

Gilson called “cold-blooded” and “beyond redemption” in sentencing him.

“He did in fact show us plenty of remorse and regret and emotion,” defense attorney John Bruno said. “Unfortunately, those feelings did not come through to the trial judge.”

Parvaiz is planning to appeal his conviction and sentence.

He was convicted of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, endangering the welfare of a child, child abuse, hindering apprehension by lying to police and weapons charges.

San Diego: Taxpayers now funding Muslim’s halal school lunches

Taxation for Islamization. Recall San Diego county has been overwhelmed by Iraqi Immigrants.

Here’s just one side-affect, via San Diego school serves halal food after students go hungry. h/t TROP

A San Diego school added “halal” food to its weekly menu after receiving complaints from Muslim parents who found their children to be going hungry.

The moves comes as part of a pilot programme that aims to serve minority students, which make up majority of the student body at Crawford High School.

Under an Obama administration program, schools qualify for universal free lunches if over 40 per cent of the families of the students qualify for some other federal assistance.

Parents complained to the school administrators that their children were coming home hungry; despite the school offering free lunches to the entire student body.

San Diego Unified’s Food Services Director Gary Petill wondered why, if all the students had access to free food, they were going hungry. It was then discovered that many of the students were not eating because the food was not halal. The school then added halal-approved chili lime chicken bowl to the menu twice a week, after which Petill said that 300 more students were eating on those days.

“It’s Mary’s Free Range, vegetarian-fed, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, air-chilled organic chicken that you’d find in Whole Foods,” Petill said.

He further noted the few cents more it costs per drumstick is offset by the larger number of students eating as schools are reimbursed by the federal government based on the number of meals served.

The federal government doesn’t sell anything (except lies). It’s funded by American taxpayers.

Even non-Muslim students enjoyed the new offering at the school cafeteria. 17-year-old Rosa Duarte joined her Muslim friends in campaigning for the halal lunches.

“I normally will not eat at school because the food options were not good,” Duarte said. “But with the halal chicken drumstick bowl, I actually am eating at school and I have more energy to go through the day and then go to my sports afterwards.”

Petil said based on early indications, the school district would continue to expand its options to meet the needs and tastes of other minority students going forward.


The false meme being pushed by conniving Muslims and swallowed hook, line and sinker by the Islamophilic media is that poor Muslim immigrant students are going hungry. It’s nonsense. If you don’t like the “free” food, buy and bring your own.

The same false meme was used in New York: Push for taxpayer-funded sharia food In NYC schools.

Texas: Muslim Gets 40 Years in Prison in $116 Million Medicare Fraud Scheme

via FBI — Assistant Administrator of Riverside General Hospital Sentenced to 40 Years in Prison in $116 Million Medicare Fraud Scheme.

The former assistant administrator of Riverside General Hospital was sentenced today to 40 years in prison for his role in a $116 million Medicare fraud scheme. To date, 10 individuals have pleaded guilty or been convicted for their involvement in the scheme.

Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson of the Southern District of Texas made the announcement.

Mohammad Khan, 65, of Houston, the assistant administrator who oversaw many of the partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) at Riverside General Hospital, pleaded guilty in February 2012 to conspiracy to commit health care fraud, conspiracy to pay and receive kickbacks and paying illegal kickbacks. He was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Sim Lake of the Southern District of Texas. He was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $31,321,200.

According to admissions made in connection with his guilty plea, from January 2008 through February 2012, Khan and others at Riverside General Hospital operated a scheme to defraud Medicare by submitting claims for PHP services that were not medically necessary and, in some cases, never provided. Prior to Khan’s arrest, Riverside submitted over $116 million in claims to Medicare for PHP services purportedly provided to the recruited beneficiaries, when in fact, the PHP services were medically unnecessary or never provided. Khan also admitted that he and his co-conspirators paid kickbacks to patient recruiters and to owners and operators of group care homes in exchange for which those individuals delivered ineligible Medicare beneficiaries to the hospital’s PHPs.

Others involved in the fraudulent scheme already have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
