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.

Muslim Brotherhood Speakers at 40th ICNA-MAS Convention

Baltimore, MD will be hosting the 40th Annual ICNA/MAS convention Memorial Day weekend, May 23-25, 2015.

The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is part of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) network in the U.S., and was listed as an affiliated organization in the seized MB document, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America”.   The Muslim American Society (MAS) claims to have no affiliation with the MB, but in 2004 then-Secretary General of MAS, Shaker Elsayed, was quoted as saying, “Ikhwan [Brotherhood] members founded MAS…”

This years convention is listing 26 featured speakers to include:

Imam Siraj Wahhaj –  Vice President of ISNA and the Imam of Masjid Al-Taqwa in Brookyn, New York.  Wahhaj has also held positions with the following Muslim Brotherhood (MB) organizations: North American Islamic Trust (NAIT),  the American Muslim Council (AMC) and the Muslim Alliance of North America (MANA).  Wahhaj was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Naeem Baig – President of ICNA and the chairman of the American Muslim Taskforce (AMT), an umbrella body of 10 national American Muslim organizations.  According to the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch (GMBDW), “The AMT today is comprised of the most important U.S. Muslim Brotherhood organizations including the Muslim American Society (MAS). Council On American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Circle Of North America (ICNA), Islamic Society Of North America (ISNA), Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), and the Muslim Student Association (MSA).”

Dr. Jamal Badawi – a professor at St. Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.  Badawi holds high level positions in a number of MB organizations.  The GMBDW notes, “Documents released during the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial indicate that he was (and probably still is), a member of the leadership structure of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

Sh. Yusuf Islahi – a member of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) party of India.  In 2010 the  Investigative Report on Terrorism (IPT)  reported that JIH supports Islamic rule over politics/the economy and has backed terrorism against American troops and in the Middle East.  At the time of the report, Islahi was noted to be a member of the governing board of the JIH party of India.

Dr. Mukhtar Maghraouireported to be with the Islamic Center Boca Raton (ICBR) Maghraoui, is a  former member of the Fiqh Council of North America – an organization comprised of Islamic scholars associated with the Global Muslim Brotherhood.  A 2014 article in The Clarion Project links the ICBR to MB groups.

Sh. Abdool Rehman Khan – chairman of the Shari’ah Council of Islamic Circle of North America and a member of the Fiqh Council of North America.

Imam Suhaib Webb – Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston’s Cultural Center (ISBCC) and former education director of the Muslim American Society (MAS).    His MB ties were featured in a December 2011  GMBDW report.

Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed –  the GMBDW advises, “Yasmin Mogahed is also the sister of Dahlia Mogahed, formerly a Faith Advisor to US President Obama and close to Saudi-funded Georgetown Professor John Esposito, himself a long-time supporter of the Global Muslim Brotherhood. Yasmin Mogahed is a regular speaker on the Global Muslim Brotherhood speaking circuit.”

Dr. Altaf Husain – former two-term national president of the Muslim Students Association (MSA),  a current executive committee member of the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA),  ISNA Vice President-US, and a board member of the Peaceful Families Project.  We reported in May 2015,  The Peaceful Families Project board also includes Salma Elkadi Abugideiri and Muna AbuSulayma, the daughters of two major MB leaders.

Imam Khalid Griggs– Imam of the Community Mosque of Winston-Salem, Associate Chaplain for Muslim Life at Wake Forest University, and Board Chair of the ICNA Council for Social Justice.  A 2012 article in the Creeping Sharia blog highlights Griggs’ radical affiliations including  being “a member of the Shura Council for the Muslim Alliance of North America (MANA), an organization co-founded and led by Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.”  In  Jan 2015, the Washington Times reported about a call for a Wake Forest University donor boycott until the university addressed the 2010 hiring of Griggs and his radical ties.

Dalia Mogahed – Formerly a Faith Advisor to US President Obama , The IPT notes that she is “a tenacious defender of groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).”   We reported on  her scheduled June 2015 video appearance at the MSA National Retreat.

Nihad Awad – National Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Washington, DC..  The IPT offers a number of reports on CAIR’s link to the MB.

Sr. Saadia Z. Yunus – daughter of past ICNA president (1977 – 2000), Dr. Mohammad Yunus.

Qasim Mazhar – Operations Manger for ICNA’S youth branch,  Young Muslims.

The ICNA’s Young Muslims will be holding their convention, Lost in Whispers, at the same dates and location.

Some past convention highlights:

The 2014 conference featured Global Muslim Brotherhood leader Tariq Ramada.

According to an IPT report, at the 2000 convention Tayyib Yunus, then leader of the Young Muslims  branch and son of former ICNA president Dr. Mohammad Yunus, urged ICNA members to send their children to fight in jihad:

“The youth is very important, as parents, for us to facilitate the youth. And, we all want to see our youth to succeed to become doctors, to become engineers; but how many of you can actually say that you want to send your son to Jihad, to Chechnya ? How many of you can actually say that? [Takbir! Allahu Akbar!] How many of you can actually say that you want to send your child [He begins to sob] Takbir! Allahua Akbar! Takbir! Allahua Akbar! [He cries uncontrollably now, after a delay, he begins to speak again] How many of you can actually say that you want to send your youth to fight in Jihad or to send them to Azhar or to these Islamic Institutions to become educated?” [Emphasis added]


 

A quick look at the program, they’ll have a sharia court on site. icna-sharia

America is not the only target of ICNA/MAS plotting and planning, India is in the crosshairs too.

Canada: Beware of the Muslim Brotherhood, expert warns

cair-mbhood-links

via Beware of the Muslim Brotherhood, expert warns | Ottawa Citizen.

Authorities should be concerned about the unseen hand of the Muslim Brotherhood gripping sections of Canada’s diverse Muslim community, says a U.S. security expert.

The movement has planted its revivalist interpretation of Islam, political ideology and activism among some Muslims here and sees itself as a minder and broker between them and the rest of society, Lorenzo Vidino, who specializes in Islamism and political violence, told the Senate’s national security committee recently.

“They basically aim to be the gatekeepers to Muslim communities, that whenever politicians, governments or the media try to get the Muslim voice, if there were such a thing, they would go through them, sort of the self‑appointed leaders of Muslim communities,” he said.

Vidino is director of the program on extremism at George Washington University and author of The New Muslim Brotherhood in the West (Columbia University Press, 2010). He sees no direct links to terrorism among the group’s western supporters. In fact, some work to prevent violent radicalization, he said.

“It would be an analytical mistake to lump them, as some do, with al-Qaida or ISIL. These are not organizations that plan attacks in the West, and actually in many cases they do condemn them.”

The problem is more indirect, Vidino said. “Generally speaking, the movement has not abandoned violence as a tool to advance its agenda.” Tactically, it doesn’t pursue violence, “but it’s not heartfelt,” he said.

“They have this narrative where they lump together foreign policy issues with issues like cartoons and so on as part of a big narrative that proves this point that the West hates Muslims and Islam. It’s that mainstreaming of this narrative which is very much the staircase to violent radicalization and the brotherhood does mainstream that. It provides somewhat of a fertile environment.

“That kind of narrative in the mind a 16- or 18-year-old is extremely dangerous, because violence is justified when Muslims are under attack. If it’s OK in Gaza and Afghanistan, why is it not OK in the West, where you’re also telling me that Islam is under attack?”

The brotherhood is a banned terrorist organization in some Middle East and other countries, notably Egypt, where the movement was born. But it has different profile in the West.

To start, there is no group calling itself the “Muslim Brotherhood” in North America. Instead, a few hundred sophisticated, politically savvy and well-funded supporters in Canada have over the past 50 years created vocal and visible organizations that represent a very small part of the Muslim community. They exert a disproportional influence over mosques, schools and spaces where Muslims come together, said Vidino.

While they don’t take orders from any Arab capital, they “are part of an informal network where you have strong links based on personal and financial connections, and at the end of the day what matters the most: ideology. They all embrace a certain world view.”

Groups sometimes go to great lengths to sever or hide such ties, Vidino told the committee. He said they include the Muslim Association of Canada and what used to be called CAIR-CAN, now the National Council of Canadian Muslims.

Another group he identified is The International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy – Canada, IRFAN. Its charitable status was revoked after the government alleged the organization sent almost $15 million to groups affiliated with the Palestinian terror outfit Hamas between 2005 and 2009. IRFAN has since been listed as a banned terrorist organization in Canada.

Ihsaan Gardee, executive director of the NCCM, said Vidino is misinformed.

“The NCCM is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit grassroots Canadian civil liberties and advocacy organization with a public track record spanning 15 years,” said Gardee. “The NCCM is not a religious group and does not and has never had any affiliations, links, ideological or of any other kind, with the Muslim Brotherhood or any other overseas group.”

The Muslim Association of Canada did not respond to a request for comment. But its website traces its roots to the teachings of Egyptian Hassan al-Banna, who founded the brotherhood in 1928 to revive and integrate traditional Islamic teaching and practices, such as sharia law, with modern society.

Vidion’s parting advice to the committee: “Engage with knowledge. Know that they have an agenda.”


The U.S. was warned too.

San Antonio Human Resources Mgmt Association eliminates CAIR from ‘Islam in the Workplace’ curriculum

May many others follow suit.

CAIRdiorama32

via FFA – San Antonio Human Resources Management Association eliminates CAIR from seminar entitled Understanding Islam in the Workplace curriculum.

San Antonio Human Resources Management Association eliminates CAIR from seminar entitled Understanding Islam in the Workplace curriculum.

Florida Family Association sent out an email alert on May 4, 2015 entitled San Antonio Human Resources Management Association sponsors CAIR seminar for educational certification credit entitled Understanding Islam in the Workplace. The email alert asked Floridafamily.org subscribers to send emails that urged San Antonio Human Resources Management Association officers and board members to abandon CAIR’s curriculum, cancel the May 12th workshop and terminate future educational relations with this organization. Thousands of people sent emails.

The San Antonio Human Resources Management Association (SAHRMA) website now has a new person addressing the workshop scheduled for May 12th instead of CAIR. The website NOW provides the following description of the new speaker: Rodney Klein graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and was hired by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as an Investigator in 1992. Mr. Klein investigated individual complaints of employment discrimination, along with large class and systemic cases. He worked as a liaison between the EEOC and various fair employment practice agencies. And, he was the San Antonio Office’s Charge Receipt Supervisor, responsible for receiving and processing all incoming discrimination complaints. Currently, Mr. Klein is the Dallas District’s Outreach and Training Manager. He speaks to audiences about employment related matters, the civil rights statutes, and EEOC procedures, and he is a featured speaker at his office’s yearly training seminars for employers.

Florida Family Association did not copy the web page before SAHRMA changed the speaker for the class. However, a Google search the morning of May 6, 2015 still contained part of the CAIR description in cache as shown in the photograph at the bottom of this email alert below. The Cache may change to the new description shown above for this Google search https://www.google.com/search?q=%22sahrma.org&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=%22sahrma.org%22+cair but at the time it was photographed the morning of May 6, 2015 the Google search cache stated: “The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was created as an “organization that challenges stereotypes of Islam and Muslims”, a “Washington-based …”

Thankfully, it appears that SAHRMA has eliminated CAIR from teaching this course. Emails of concern clearly made a difference in SAHRMA’s quick removal of CAIR from teaching the course. Florida Family Association responded to the change of speaker by sending emails to inquire with SAHRMA’s top officers and directors if CAIR would have any other involvement in the course. None of the San Antonio Human Resources Management Association (SAHRMA) officials responded to Florida Family Association’s inquiry. Florida Family Association hopes to receive a report from insider(s) about the course presentation.

 

California: City Official’s Job In Jeopardy From Terror-Linked Muslim Group CAIR

CAIR is not only terror-linked, but named a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

via City Official’s Job In Jeopardy For Sharing A Steven Crowder Article On Facebook.

Art Barrios is city planning commissioner for the town of El Monte in California. For now.

The former city councilman and mayor candidate is under fire from CAIR, a Muslim “civil liberties advocacy organization”(yeah, right), and the local media for sharing an article from THIS website regarding China’s policy toward Islam. Now he is paying a steep price.

For this posting, Barrios is now under fire and his job is in question, thanks to pressure from, and demands by, CAIR:

video omitted

Caving to the pressure, Barrios has been cornered into apologizing for sharing an article on his Facebook page in what appears to be a bid to save his job.

“I made a mistake. I wrote something that I didn’t mean to write,” the former city councilman said. “I read (the blog post). But I misinterpreted it. I was thinking Islamic terrorists, not the people of Islam, the religion.”

This attack on someone for sharing an article from this website comes in the wake of our recent article breaking the story on Osama Siblani, a Muslim businessman and activist based in Michigan who claimed, on television, that Pamela Geller is “worse than ISIS.” LouderWithCrowder.com also broke the fact that Osama himself had voiced known support to terrorist organizations, and expressed anti-semitic views. The most offensive part? That we weren’t even shocked.

It follows our wildly successful expose on Muslim bakeries and the left’s hypocritical stand on gay marriage.

And it comes just ahead of our very important interview with a convert from Islam that will be airing tomorrow on the Louder With Crowder program.

Freedom of speech has been in the news a lot lately, and it is more than apparent that the once hallowed and most fundamental freedom, is less valued and treasured today than at almost any time in American history. Organizations like CAIR are the reason why. There is an active, designed and coordinated campaign in America, supported wittingly or unwittingly by a cowardly and compliant media, to silence any who dare speak ill of the world’s most thin-skinned, backward, and barbaric religion.

But this should be no surprise. As you’ll hear in our explosive interview tomorrow, freedom and the constitution are not priorities for Muslim interest groups in America. Indeed it is commonplace to circumvent not only American values and traditions, but our very legal structure, in pursuit of Islamist ideals.

Art Barrios shared a Facebook post of an article from our website. And because of that he may lose his job. Will you be next?

California: Taxpayers paying for Islamic indoctrination in US university

 Not just in California either. via Taxpayers made to pay for Islamic indoctrination in US University 

By Lee Kaplan

Hatem Bazian is a senior lecturer in Near East Studies at UC Berkeley. A Palestinian Arab, Bazian is also a supporter of Hamas and one of the terrorist group’s apparatchiks in the United States. Bazian was the founder of the Students for Justice in Palestine which has chapters on over 80 campuses in the United States and that operates as a Hamas support network in the United States. Bazian also co-founded American Muslims for Palestine which also links to Hamas and functions as a propaganda and fundraising mechanism to Hamas in Washington and is active with the Muslim Students Association on over 150 campuses in the United States and Canada. As an organizer, Bazian is tough to equal and he has used the California college educational system and its taxpayer-funded deep pockets to help facilitate massive propaganda events and fundraising not only for the Palestinian terrorist group, but for pro-jihadist groups across American campuses and Europe as well.

It is through his bully pulpit at UC Berkeley that Bazian also created his Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project at UC Berkeley’s Center for Race and Gender Project. Racism and Sexism are hot topics on college campuses today. The fact that Islam is not a race, nor is a concept of Palestinian nationalism one, both of theories are being sold by Bazian and his acolytes in the university sphere worldwide. Thanks to UC Berkeley and surrounding colleges like San Francisco State (where Bazian did his undergraduate studies and led a Palestinian takeover of that campus as class president), Bazian’s campaign keeps gaining legitimacy as it aids the endless war against both the United States and Israel by militant Islamists including those who are fighting U.S. troops abroad.

A perusal of the websites for Baizan’s “documentation project” and the Center for Race and Gender events page at UC Berkeley reveals endless programs, lectures, events and other promotions dealing with alleged prejudice against all Muslims and “Islam” in America as endemic racism. On May 7th, the Center offers a book signing and lecture by a colleague of Bazian’s at Cal who claims American racism is the result of a refusal to establish a Palestinian state that would be led by notorious terrorists who support America’s and Israel’s downfall, such as Hamas.

“Islamophobia” refers to an irrational fear of Islam. It is supposedly to counter this irrational fear that Bazian staged April 23-25, 2015 his sixth annual “International Conference on Islamophobia: The State of the Islamophobia Field.” As done last year, the event was staged at UC Berkeley’s prestigious Boalt Hall Law School. Aside from providing a free venue at a distinguished law school, the event gets the entire imprimatur of one of the most distinguished universities in America. Other “sponsors” of the event included the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), who members of congress and terrorism experts have declared a Hamas front group in America. The “Ethnic Studies” department at San Francisco State was also a sponsor, a professor of “Resistance Studies” named Rebab Abdulhadi in attendance and one of the conference lecturers who had gained notoriety by spending $6,000 of California taxpayer’s money for a sabbatical to visit female terrorist Leila Khaled in jail in Jordan to “show solidarity.” It should also be noted Hatem Bazian posted personally the conference’s schedule on the website of Bay Area Intifada, a blog that claims to promote “News, Updates, Analysis & Action Alerts for 3rd World Liberation & Decolonization from the Bay Area & Beyond.” An Intifada refers to Palestinian terrorist attacks that have killed thousands of Israeli civilians. The blog features photos attacking Israel and the United States.

I attended this latest conference with a video camera and tape recorder. I did the same thing last year and sat almost next to Hatem Bazian the entire time. Bazian was very cocky back then during last year’s event and joked about my having recorders. I wrote an article about that event. Only last March, Bazian staged yet another “Islamophobia” conference where he claimed Muslims were being denied a voice for their “studies” in the American university system despite his constant conferences and demonstrations to the contrary that I previously reported on and recorded.

Things were to be different at this conference. Bazian had me watched closely. On the second day, he approached me in the audience and told me I had to turn off my recorders. On two more occasions during that day, two goons came to my seat and ordered me to turn off my recording equipment , the last one threatening to “call the police.” It is against state law in California universities to hold private meetings and prevent recordings and a quick cell call to the Chancellor’s Office who contacted the campus police prevented any problems.

Rather than being an educational event to increase understanding of Islam and communication in a university setting, the event really was a support rally for the likes of Hamas and Islamic movements at war with the United States, its true purpose to cast Muslims in general as victims of American racism and injustice. Considering this was the second such conference this year in as many months put on by Hatem Bazian, the Chancellor’s Office and UC Regents really need to take a hard look at Bazian’s handiwork in creating these events and his use of taxpayer facilities to promote a myth of “racism” against Islam in America that includes prejudice against black Americans also who murder police officers. The event was not education but indoctrination and manipulation for a specifically Muslim audience of radicals.

CAIR Coordinated w/ ACLU to Smear Mohammed Cartoonists After Jihad Attack

via CAIR Coordinated w/ACLU to Smear Mohammed Cartoonists After Shooting.

by Daniel Greenfield

The ACLU is not a free speech organization. It does engage in stunts that make it look that way. The ACLU is Islamist infiltrated and it backed Obama and Hillary’s crackdown on Innocence of Muslims after the Benghazi attack.

A New York Times article chock full of spin on the shootings does transmit one interesting fact.

Alia Salem, the executive director of the Dallas and Fort Worth chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, took calls from those she views as allies — other Muslim advocates, a Methodist minister, an organizer for the American Civil Liberties Union — to come up with a response that would walk a fine line: clearly condemning the extremists behind the attack, while also calling to account what they see as hatred decked out in free speech finery.

“The discussion we have to have is: When does free speech become hate speech, and when does hate speech become incitement to violence?” Ms. Salem said. “Free speech is not the same as responsible speech.”

That’s a careful subversion of free speech, apparently coordinated with an organizer for the ACLU.

You don’t normally denounce someone after they were nearly killed in an attack by your people, but that’s exactly what was going on here. As with Rushdie and Charlie Hebdo, elements of Muslim organizations that weren’t openly shouting “Death to America” instead doubled around to destroy sympathy for the targets of the terrorists.

And Salem is now pushing the ‘incitement’ line whose goal is to criminalize criticism of Islam. The ACLU’s organizer is apparently okay with that.

The New York Times swiftly spins this into Muslims being persecuted by being denied the power to impose Sharia law. Denying the power to oppress women is not usually considered oppression by the left… but there’s a special exception in there for Muslims.

Many Muslims here defy easy categorization. They embrace their many identities — as Texans, Muslims and Americans. Many of them are registered Republicans. One former community leader, a Syrian-American businessman with ties to Garland, served in 2013 as prime minister of a Syrian opposition coalition’s interim government.

Oddly enough, the New York Times doesn’t tell us the name of this extraordinary man who defies categorization. It’s Ghassan Hito.

Can he be easily categorized? Same way as CAIR.

Known for being religiously pious, Mr Hitto had been an active member of the Muslim community in the US. He headed the board of the largest Islamic school in the country and was also a board member of the local chapter of the Muslim American Society, according to friends. The society was set up by the Muslim Brotherhood but now downplays its links to the organisation.

Dallas-based security adviser Mohamed Elibiary, who has known Mr Hitto for the past 10-years described him as “more of an intellectual Islamic activist than a rank and file Islamist type”. “He is broadly respected amongst various segments of the Muslim community including by Muslim Brotherhood members,” he said, adding that he was a “consummate hard negotiating diplomat.”

Two words: Muslim Brotherhood.

It’s funny how at the bottom of all those difficult to categorize people and organizations who embrace many identities are two words.

Now let’s look at Hitto’s connection to the Garland shootings. Hitto co-founded the Muslim Legal Fund of America, which brought a terrorist supporter to speak at a mosque of one of the shooters, which is run by the Muslim Brotherhood.

And what does the MLFA do? It defends Muslim terrorists.

If the New York Times practiced the substance of journalism, instead of the style, it might find this quite interesting. But then it wouldn’t be the New York Times.
