Letterman “Miss Iraq” Top 10 List Gets Michigan Teacher Suspended

Sharia’s creeping everywhere you look. Particularly where there are Muslims and Muslim apologists.

via Monroe teacher suspended for ‘Top-10 talents of Miss Iraq’ assignment

MONROE, MI — It may have started as a joke based on a top 10 list appearing on David Letterman’s TV show more than 20 years ago, but officials with the Monroe Public Schools aren’t laughing.

A teacher at Monroe High School was placed on administrative leave for handing out an assignment asking students to rate the jokes about the “Top Ten Talents of Contestants in the Miss Iraq Pageant” from funniest to least funny. The list was first done as a joke by Letterman.

The assignment was passed to students in a math class at the school on Nov. 10. The teacher, who has not been named by the school district, updated the Letterman list slightly to include more modern “talents.”

Among the other “talents” listed in the original skit by Letterman were “Blowing self up in a car in a parking lot,” “Describing what they would look like in a bathing suit if they were permitted to wear one” and “Withstanding the kick of a donkey.”

A copy of the assignment provided to MLive by a student at Monroe High School had several of the original “jokes” from Letterman’s list in the assignment.

Students were then asked to make a scatterplot graph comparing their rankings to Letterman’s rankings.

Monroe High School principal Sandy Kreps issued a statement Wednesday, Nov. 16, on the school’s website where she confirmed the assignment related to Letterman’s bit was issued and brought to the attention of faculty by students.

“On Thursday, November 10, 2016, one of our teachers gave an assignment from David Letterman’s Top 10 that did not promote a safe environment for our MHS community,” Kreps wrote. “Two students from the class immediately reported this to MHS administration and completed incident reports.”

Kreps said an investigation began the next day and yesterday. The Monroe News reported the teacher was placed on paid leave while the investigation takes place.

“The following day, I explained to the students in the class that this assignment is not valid nor should it ever been given,” Kreps wrote. “It will be removed from Power School and the assignment thrown out.”

Kreps also explained that the school works hard to create a safe environment for all students and that anyone who feels unsafe are asked to contact faculty to share their concerns.

Students do not have to raise their concerns in person, as they may also email or call school officials in order to maintain confidentiality, she wrote.

Documentary on “ex-Muslims” sparks contentious debate at Portland State

An anonymous note which read, “Atheist Islamophobia is not okay” was left in the display case for the event.

Let’s hope it doesn’t turn into an Ohio State jihad attack. h/t Jihad Watch who writes:

The film is about Muslims being victimized, and the knee-jerk reaction of Leftist and Islamic supremacist students at Portland State University is that this makes Muslims victims. The plight of the ex-Muslims depicted in the film is lost in the brouhaha.

On Nov. 23, over 60 people attended the screening of Islam’s Non-Believers at Portland State University. The documentary film featured the personal testimonies of ex-Muslims who have faced death threats, severe abuse and ostracization from their communities for leaving Islam. The film’s director, Deeyah Khan, is a Muslim and human rights activist.

The event was hosted by secular humanist student group, Freethinkers of PSU.

Controversy surrounded the event in the weeks leading up to the screening. Some students found the event insensitive given the political climate, while others thought the event promoted discrimination. In the glass display case for Freethinkers, a note was left which read, “Atheist Islamophobia is not okay.” Across campus, many flyers for the event were vandalized or torn down.

In response to the backlash, two ex-Muslim women featured in the documentary issued statements which were read or shown at the screening. “I hope you realize that discriminating against ex-Muslims is not an excuse to validate your savior complex,” Rayhana said in a pre-recorded video message.

Sadia sent Freethinkers of PSU a written statement. It read in part, “Islam’s Non-Believers was such an important documentary because for the first time ex-Muslims have been given a face and a voice. It has made us human.”

Despite the controversy leading up to the event, the screening proceeded without any disruptions. Dr. Peter Boghossian, professor of philosophy at PSU, facilitated a group discussion after the film ended.

One Muslim woman in attendance objected to the narrative presented in the film. “The punishment for apostasy in the Qur’an is not death,” she said. “The Qur’an is written in Arabic and most people from Bangladesh, India and other parts don’t speak Arabic.” Two native Arabic speakers later challenged this assertion when they recited several Qur’anic verses which can be interpreted as prescribing death for those who reject God.

Muslim Refugee Killed by Police After Driving Into Crowd, Stabbing People at Ohio State Univ

Updates below.

A second attacker is discussed in the video below but not other major media accounts we’ve reviewed. More to come.

Source: Who is Abdul Razak Ali Artan? Ohio State suspect wounded 8 in knife, car attack | AL.com

Abdul Razak Ali Artan has been identified as the suspect in today’s knife attack at Ohio State University.

Here’s what we know about Artan:

Artan is an 18-year-old Ohio State student who lives near the campus. He is a Somali refugee who left his homeland in 2007 before traveling to Pakistan and then the U.S. in 2014 where he had legal permanent resident status.

Artan allegedly drove a vehicle over the curb outside a student building at around 9:52 a.m. local time today, striking some students. He then exited the vehicle and began slashing people on the sidewalk with a butcher knife. The incident prompted an active shooter alert and a campus-wide lockdown. The school remained locked down for more than an hour and classes for the day were cancelled.

It was later determined the gunshots were likely from police.

Columbus, Ohio police said they arrived within minutes of the report. Artan was shot and killed by police at the scene. Police later said the attack “appeared to be on purpose.” It’s believed Artan acted alone though police are still processing the scene.

Nine people were injured in the attack; eight were listed in stable condition, one was in critical condition. Four more people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.


From the NYT:  Suspect Is Killed in Attack at Ohio State University That Injured 9

“This was done on purpose,” said Chief Craig Stone of the Ohio State University police. “To go over the curb and strike pedestrians and then get out and start striking with the knife — that was on purpose.”

Eight of the hospitalized victims were believed to be stable, and another patient in critical condition was expected to survive.

The authorities said on Monday afternoon that they were investigating whether the attack may have been an act of terrorism.

Monday’s violence comes after a February machete attack at a Mediterranean restaurant in Columbus, which also ended with the police killing the suspect. The restaurant’s owner told reporters he believed he was targeted because of his Israeli heritage. Also, in September, a young Somali man, Dahir Adan, was killed by the police in St. Cloud, Minn., after stabbing 10 people at a shopping mall.

Mr. Artan is listed as a logistics management major in Ohio State’s online directory. Officials at Columbus State Community College said Mr. Artan also attended that school and graduated with an associate of arts degree. He was on the Columbus State dean’s list in 2015 and graduated cum laude.


According to NBC News, the suspect has been identified as 18-year-old Abdul Razak Ali Artan. Artan was an Ohio State student and Somali refugee. He left his homeland with his family for Pakistan in 2007. In 2014, he became a permanent U.S. citizen, NBC News reports.



Updates: Another NBC outlet reports:

Surveillance photos showed Artan in the car by himself just before the attack, but investigators were looking into whether anyone else was involved, the campus police chief said.


Artan complained about the lack of Muslim prayer rooms at OSU in the school newspaper even stating, “I’m a Muslim. It’s not what the media portrays me to be.”

Worthy of noting: One Ohio Mosque Has Been at the Center of SIX Terror Cases.

As far back as 2010, possibly earlier, Muslims outside the U.S. were encouraging Muslims in the U.S. to mow Americans down with vehicles. Most recently, Islamic State encouraged Muslims to target the New York City Macy’s Day Parade on Thanksgiving.

George Mason Univ has artist arrested, faces 5 YEARS in jail for anti-terror posters

Creep, creep. Source: Exclusive interview with People’s Cube director, Oleg Atbashian, who may get FIVE YEARS in JAIL for anti-terror posters – The Rebel

The artwork of Oleg Atbashian, a former Soviet dissident and now an American citizen, is familiar to many conservatives through the satirical website The People’s Cube.

He is now facing large fines and up to five years in jail for putting up anti-terrorism posters at George Mason University.

In this exclusive interview, Oleg explains what happened:

Daniel Greenfield writes:

This was supposed to be a two-day poster campaign, to counteract the George Mason University hosting an official national conference for Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which is an anti-Semitic organization with well-documented ties to Hamas, a terrorist group whose stated goal is to exterminate the Jews.

The GMU poster campaign was conceived by the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Selective enforcement is now the main tool of the modern tyrant. Laws are interpreted to prevent any kind of opposition to Marxist and Islamic domination of the culture and legal system.

Posters and other materials supporting far left wing causes and Islamic ones (that at times even promote genocide of Israelis, and Jews overall) can be found on campuses across North America.

Some universities even hold “Israeli Apartheid Week”, something which, in Canada, would be a hate crime if it was targeted, for example, at Saudi Arabia.

Germany: School forces children to chant ‘Allahu Akbar’ and “there is no God but Allah”

Source: Fury as German primary school ‘forces’ children to chant ‘Allahu Akbar’ in Muslim prayer Daily Express

The father of the pupil at the girl’s primary school in German ski resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen discovered that his daughter had been forced to learn the Islamic prayer when he discovered a handout she had been given.

He claimed she had been “forced” by teachers to memorise the Islamic chants and forwarded the handout to Austrian news service unsertirol24.

Headteacher Gisela Herl did not confirm the incident when questioned, but said the school would issue a written statement detailing its position in the coming week.The incident comes just weeks after parents complained to German newspaper Hessian Niedersächsische Allgemeine (HNA) that their children’s nursery was refusing to acknowledge “Christmas rituals” to accommodate the “diverse cultures” of other pupils.

The Sara Nussbaum House daycare centre in Kassel refused to put up a Christmas tree, tell Christmas stories or celebrate Christmas in general because it said only a minority of pupils were Christian.

A spokesman for Kassel explained: “There will be no Christmas celebrations, in the strictest sense. Because the majority of children at this kindergarten are not Christian the festival will not be celebrated in the way that it is at other schools.”Migrants now outnumber native children at many schools in Germany as the country has been inundated with migrants in recent years.

More than one million migrants are estimated to have arrived in Germany during the last year alone.The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees estimates that another 200,000 people will apply for asylum in 2017.

New York: Muslim college student killed waging jihad for Islamic State

Once again destroying the myth that Muslim terrorists are poor, uneducated souls who are lacking opportunities. This Muslim jihadist was attending college…in pricey Manhattan. The media apparently won’t reveal what college he attended (was he an MSA member?) or his immigration status.

— A 2008 Goshen High School graduate killed fighting for the Islamic State group in Syria made a video trying to clear the name of an Arizona man who was charged with helping him join, prosecutors said.

The 24-year-old student’s November death was revealed in papers filed Monday and Tuesday in Manhattan federal court. The student was identified in court papers as Samy El-Goarany.

The Arizona man, Ahmed Mohammed el Gammal, who’s accused of helping the student travel to Syria and receive military and religious-style training, was arrested last year and has pleaded not guilty. His lawyers said the video is unreliable and “overly prejudicial” and should be precluded from a trial scheduled for December.

Prosecutors say El-Goarany left his parents’ home in Middletown, New York, in January 2015, telling them he was returning to his Manhattan college. Instead, the government said, he flew to Turkey and then Syria.

Reached by phone, El-Goarany’s father said the family didn’t wish to speak. Court papers did not identify El-Goarany’s college.

Prosecutors said an unidentified person contacted a relative in November to say El-Goarany was killed fighting in Syria. The person provided photographs of a handwritten note in which the student said, “If you’re reading this then know that I’ve been killed in battle,” prosecutors said.

The government also said it had found a YouTube video in which El-Goarany, clad in military fatigues, said on Sept. 8, 2015, two weeks after el Gammal’s arrest, that he was in the “Islamic State.”

Prosecutors said El-Goarany claimed in the video in an “unabashed effort to falsely exculpate el Gammal — that no one assisted him in traveling to Syria, including ‘Ahmed Mohammed El Gammal.”‘

Prosecutors argued in the court papers that the video should be admissible at trial to show El-Goarany went to Syria to join the Islamic State group and that he and his co-conspirators took extensive measures to maintain secrecy in the group’s methods for recruiting personnel and helping recruits travel.

El-Goarany’s lawyers said in court papers that the video depicts their client sitting on a mat in a sparsely decorated room. They say he states his name, explains he is a U.S. citizen “currently residing in the Islamic State” and says el Gammal did not assist him in his travels.

The lawyers said the video should not be shown to jurors because it “constitutes inadmissible hearsay.”

“Additionally, the entire video should be precluded as overly prejudicial,” they wrote, noting that El-Goarany is unavailable to testify at el Gammal’s trial and cannot further explain how el Gammal did not facilitate his travel.

The defense lawyers also challenged the admissibility of El-Goarany’s handwritten note, saying claims of his death were “unreliable,” especially since he had written to his brother weeks earlier to say he might have to fall out of contact because he was being monitored.

“It is not beyond the stretch of the imagination that the letter was written so that El-Goarany could ‘disappear,”‘ the lawyers wrote.

According to The Chronicle archives, Samy M. El-Goarany graduated in 2008 with a Regent’s Diploma.


The lawyer makes a good point, he may not be dead and if not, may attempt to come back into the U.S. at any time as a Syrian “refugee.”

“Our submission is in this photograph where the teachers forced the students to pray to allah”

This image may go down in history as one of the emblematic moments of the Islamization of Europe.

The photo dates from 30 October 2014. Show girls and boys of primary school Vinkenbuurt, native Dutch blond lying prostrate to pray to Allah in Ghulzar-e-Madina mosque in Zwolle, the capital of the province of Overijssel, in the east-central area of ‘Holland.


The imam probably had them recite the shahada, meaning, in the eyes of Muslims that these kids are now…
