South Carolina GOP Gov. Nikki Haley Welcomes Muslim Refugees

Nikki Haley

via Nikki Haley welcomes Muslim refugees – WND

Some are calling it the “height of hypocrisy,” bordering on demagoguery.

Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s Republican governor, came out last Thursday and blasted possible White House plans to bring Guantanamo Bay prisoners to her state.

The governor called a news conference and didn’t mince words.

“We are absolutely drawing a line that we are not going to allow any terrorist to come into South Carolina,” Haley said. “We are not going to allow that kind of threat, we are not going to allow that kind of character to come in.

“My job is to protect the people of this state, and I take that very personally,” she continued. “I will take that personally the entire way through, so that the president, the Congress and anyone involved in this decision understands they are not wanted, they are not needed, and we will not accept them in South Carolina.”

Yet, at the same time she was drawing a red line against Gitmo terrorists who would stay locked in a brig off the coast of Charleston, Haley was opening her arms wide to welcome “refugees” from jihadist strongholds in the Middle East and Africa.

World Relief, an evangelical aid agency that gets paid by the federal government to resettle refugees in the U.S. from places like Somalia and Syria, hatched plans more than a year ago to add Spartanburg, South Carolina, to the list of more than 190 U.S. cities receiving foreign refugees.

As WND has reported in a series of more than 35 articles over the past year, the refugee program has been fraught with problems. Chief among them has been young men entering the U.S. as refugees and turning out to be terrorists. Some, such as the two Iraqis in Bowling Green, Kentucky, or the Uzbek man resettled in Boise, Idaho, harbored ill intent against America from day one. But others, such as the six Somalis from Minnesota who were arrested after repeatedly trying to join ISIS, or the two brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon, were radicalized after they came to the U.S. as young boys.

According to a document released Aug. 11 by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., at least 72 cases have been documented in just the past year of suspected Muslims arrested on terrorist-related charges. Sessions is asking the Obama administration to clarify their immigration status but all are believed to be either immigrants or children of recent immigrants.

So when World Relief’s plans were finally made public in March, it set off a wave of grassroots opposition in Spartanburg. Residents were angry they had not been consulted about the new arrivals, nor were they given information on the impact refugees will have on schools, housing and labor markets. Not to mention the national security risks that almost nobody wanted to talk about.

Haley has come down on the side of the State Department and the refugees, saying she trusts the vetting process, despite hundreds of arrests and active investigations involving refugees or children of refugees across the U.S. She has chosen to believe the State Department over the FBI, which is responsible for screening the refugees and warned that in some cases it’s an impossible task.

Haley also seems content to ignore the warnings of Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee. McCaul has expressed serious concerns about the Syrian refugees, calling the program a possible “jihadist pipeline” to the U.S.

While Haley has thrown out the welcome mat for potentially thousands of Muslim refugees who will walk the streets of South Carolina cities, she has condemned in the strongest words any plan to allow Gitmo prisoners.

South Carolina activists say they wish Haley would be as willing to go to the mat for citizens’ safety when it comes to U.N.-selected refugees as she is with regard to Gitmo prisoners.

“Gov. Haley made a big deal out of saying no to Gitmo. It was an angry Haley on the air, every TV station, angry about the possibility of Gitmo prisoners coming here,” said Christina Jeffrey, co-founder of Spartans for Biblical Immigration who has helped lead the grassroots effort against the refugee program in Spartanburg.

“Those Gitmo prisoners, they’re going to be locked up, not living next door to anyone, not going to our schools, our stores or anywhere they can do us any harm; they’re going to be locked up,” Jeffrey said. “The refugees are a much bigger threat to the community and she says she supports that program and trusts the vetting process.”

Obama halts deportation of thousands of Yemenis, grants ‘temporary’ legal status

Yemen is more than 99% Muslim, so this means thousands more Muslims added to taxpayer-funded, long-term welfare roles in the U.S. via DHS grants temporary legal status to Yemeni citizens – Washington Times

The Obama administration Thursday announced it will grant legal status and halt deportations for potentially thousands of citizens of Yemen, saying the security situation on the ground there is so bad that the U.S. has a moral obligation to protect people.

Applicants must undergo a security screening and must prove they were in the U.S. as of Sept. 3 in order to qualify. They will win an 18-month reprieve from being kicked out of the U.S.

“Individuals with certain criminal records or who pose a threat to national security are not eligible,” the Homeland Security Department said in a statement announcing the move.

The department predicted between 500 and 2,000 people are likely to qualify for the stay of deportation.

The official program is known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and it’s a program normally used for countries that have suffered massive natural disasters such as earthquakes or hurricanes, or armed conflicts.

It is supposed to give other countries a chance to recover without having to worry about an influx of more citizens returning from the U.S. The Obama administration has used it for Ebola-stricken countries and for others hit by terrorism and rebellions. Syria, for example, was added earlier this year.

Those granted TPS are also given work permits allowing them to legally hold jobs, and the department will not deport anyone in that status.

That makes it similar in effect to the deportation amnesty President Obama announced last year for illegal immigrant parents — though a federal court has halted that program.

The initial grant is for 18 months, but TPS is often renewed. Honduras has been on the list for more than 16 years.


DHS was created after 9/11 to protect Americans from Muslim terrorists.

Yet, like the Hondurans, the Yemenis and the Muslim terrorists and sharia supremacists among them, will never be deported from the U.S.

Boston Globe in Cover-up of Islamist Network in New England

Source: Peace and Tolerance

We at APT have met with Globe journalists many times, and with the entire Globe Spotlight Team consisting of top reporters and editors. We showed them documents linking the Islamic Society of Boston to terror groups and we played for them videos of hateful sermons against Jews, Christians and America. The Globe has a PC narrative that simply will not abide facts that contradict it. They still refuse to tell the citizens of Boston what they know about radical Islamists in the Hub.

Frank Gaffney’s piece proves the point decisively and with eloquence:

Having now become a city seemingly synonymous with homegrown jihadists, Boston’s paper of record continues to go back to the very enablers who recruit and indoctrinate young men and women as the go to source for all things Muslim in Boston.

We’re talking about the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), a network of mosques and Islamic organizations, founded and managed by Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups, that have been the incubators for more than a dozen known terrorists and radicals, including Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Consider the Boston Globe’s recent piece, by religion reporter Lisa Wangsness, on a “new generation” of Muslim leaders for the Boston area leading the charge for “civil rights.” But in reality all appearances suggest that this new generation is the same as the old, which means tied to Muslim Brotherhood outfits.

Americans have been repeatedly instructed to “See something, say something,” when it comes to terrorism activity. Yet when it comes to the jihadist record of the Islamic Society of Boston, CAIR, and other Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, the Boston Globe seems to prefer the slogan, “hear no evil, see no evil.”

Detroit: Muslim flight attendant makes co-workers serve alcohol, files complaint when one refuses

Represented by the terror-linked Hamas front-group CAIR

The burden of Islam and sharia in America, via Muslim flight attendant files complaint after discipline for refusing to serve alcohol | Michigan Radio – why didn’t Michigan Radio identify CAIR’s convicted terrorist leaders and terror links?

A Muslim flight attendant disciplined for refusing to serve alcohol has filed a federal complaint in Detroit.

Attorneys for Charee Stanley filed the complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Tuesday.

Stanley is a flight attendant with ExpressJet Airways, working with Detroit-based management and crew.

When she converted to Islam about two years ago, Stanley says she arranged for fellow flight attendants to serve alcohol on her behalf.

She says that arrangement worked out fine until one employee filed a complaint about having to do extra work last month.

That employee also made comments about her Islamic headdress and expressed other anti-Muslim sentiments, according to Stanley.

Stanley, who was placed on unpaid leave in mid-August after that complaint, said ExpressJet should accommodate her religious beliefs.

“I don’t feel like I should have to choose between practicing my religion properly and earning a living,” Stanley said.

Lena Masri, staff attorney with the Council on American Islamic Relations-Michigan, says that by law, employers must provide “reasonable accommodations” for an employee’s sincerely held religious beliefs –provided that accommodation doesn’t cause an “undue burden” for the employer.

“In this situation, there has clearly been no undue burden on the employer, as this request [was] accommodated for some time and there has never been any issue,” Masri said.

CAIR-Michigan director Dawud Walid added the organization is seeing more workplace discrimination cases.

“Her case is symptomatic of broader problem of Islamophobia that seems to be growing,” Walid said.

Stanley’s attorneys say that if the EEOC complaint doesn’t resolve the issue, a federal lawsuit could be filed.

In a statement, an ExpressJet spokesman said the airline is “an equal opportunity employer with a long history of diversity in our workforce” – but isn’t able to comment on an employee’s “personnel matters.”

Why Did Huma Abedin Bring Desecration of Koran in Michigan to Sec of State Clinton’s Attention?

Source: Why Did Huma Abedin Feel the Need to Bring the Desecration of a Koran to Sec of State Clinton’s Attention? | BEN WEINGARTEN

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was understandably kept abreast of all manner of news from all over the world during her tenure as Secretary of State.

But buried amidst the thousands of emails recently released by the State Department is one news report of particular interest sent from top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Here is Abedin’s note:

This email begs the question: Why did Huma Abedin feel the need to bring the desecration of a Koran in East Lansing, MI to the attention of the Secretary of State?

Did Abedin feel that Clinton might be concerned about the news “inciting” attacks in America or abroad?

Might she have felt that such a story could be leveraged politically?

Was it just something Abedin as a Muslim found personally reprehensible, that she felt her confidant ought to be made aware of?

Whatever the reason that Huma Abedin felt the need to give a heads-up to Hillary Clinton on this particular story, this and the hundreds if not thousands of emails between them remind us that though the press may ignore it, a Muslim Brotherhood-tied aide has been closer to Mrs. Clinton than perhaps anyone else for many years, including critical ones at Foggy Bottom.


Note the Koran burning was reported by another Muslim Brotherhood entity, the terror-named Hamas front group CAIR and it took place in Lansing, Michigan – where the mayor celebrates the month of jihad – Ramadan – on 9/11.

UNC’s ‘Literature of 9/11’ course sympathizes with Muslim terrorists

An English class offered at UNC Chapel Hill this fall called “Literature of 9/11” explores the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks from the perspective of radical Islamists and those who view America as an imperialist nation.

The reading assignments for the class, which includes poems, memoirs and graphic novels, present terrorists in a sympathetic light and American political leaders as greedy, war hungry and corrupt, according to a review by The College Fix.

The readings mostly focus on justifying the actions of terrorists – painting them as fighting against an American regime, or mistaken idealists, or good people just trying to do what they deem right. None of the readings assigned in the freshman seminar present the Sept. 11 attacks from the perspective of those who died or from American families who lost loved ones.

“ENGL 72: Literature of 9/11” is taught by Neel Ahuja, an associate professor of English, comparative literature, and geography at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

“Neel grew up in Topeka, Kansas. He studied transnational cultural studies at the University of California, San Diego and gender studies at Northwestern University, where he was a student organizer and labor solidarity activist,” according to his online faculty bio.

Ahuja did not respond to several emails from The College Fix seeking comment. Jim Gregory, UNC’s director of media relations, said in a telephone interview that the university does not have an official stance on the class.

First-year seminars are often esoteric in nature, and typically hone in on narrow and unique topics. They are meant to introduce new students to college-level courses, and “offer an introduction to the intellectual life of the university and focus on how scholars pose problems, discover truths, resolve controversies, and evaluate knowledge,” UNC’s website states.

Other seminars this fall at UNC include designing robots with Legos, the relationship between humans and animals, race and ethnic relations in the U.S., and even animals in Japanese folklore.

As for “Literature of 9/11,” its online description states it aims to “explore representations of the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath in literature and popular culture.”

To that end, the class covers a wide variety of readings, according to a list detailed by the campus bookstore’s website.

In the Shadow of No Towers is a collection of 9/11 comics by celebrated graphic artist Art Speigelman, who witnessed the attacks from his home in lower Manhattan. None of his family died in the attack, but Speigelman told Democracy Now he felt anger at how the incident was turned into a patriotic rallying cry, and his Towers work is an extension of those emotions.

The horrors his family survived that morning “were only the beginning for Spiegelman, as his anguish was quickly displaced by fury at the U.S. government, which shamelessly co-opted the events for its own preconceived agenda,” according to the book’s Amazon description.

An online database of professor salaries maintained by the News & Observer states Ahuja’s annual salary is $72,100.
