In many other zip codes around the world, Muslims are killing as many as possible during Ramadan. via Dearborn company’s Ramadan commercial casts new light on Muslims – News – Press and Guide.

It isn’t every day that you see positive images of Muslims on television. But this Ramadan, a new commercial is changing that.

The Ramadan commercial aims to show the real image of everyday American Muslims and a glimpse into their lives during Ramadan. Dearborn company Piximotion created the first-of-its-kind commercial with Comcast.

“A part of the message is to show that Islam is very diverse,” said Wissam Bazzi, of Dearborn Heights and founder of Piximotion. “Islam in the mainstream media is not the only perspective.”

The 30-second clip features Muslims of various backgrounds, including scenes of families gathering for iftar, the time to break fast. The commercial highlights thankfulness, discipline and family as some of the key components of what makes Ramadan a special time for Muslims.

The commercial, which can be viewed at http://www.itsramadan.org, ends with the message: “It’s Ramadan. A month of human values. From your Muslim friends and neighbors, happy Ramadan.”

Bazzi said the project shows the humanity of Muslims, and Ramadan is a great time to do that.

The Ramadan commercial is airing in 74 zip codes in Michigan and southern Florida for Comcast Cable customers. More than $5,000 in funds for the commercial were raised through crowdfunding site LaunchGood and about $25,000 were raised altogether. Bazzi said the interest was so great that people even stopped into his office to support the project.

“It’s a beautiful effort of our whole community coming together. The unification of so many different individuals,” Bazzi said.

Supporters will be glad to hear that the project doesn’t end when Ramadan does. Bazzi said they are planning for a bigger commercial next year.


If the start of Ramadan is any indication, humanity is non-existent among followers of Islam. But hey, “It’s Ramadan!”

UK: Fury over plans to turn Manchester hospital chapel into Muslim prayer room

Get this…

“There are already two Muslim prayer rooms in the hospital…”

via Fury over plans to turn Christian chapel into Muslim prayer room | UK | News | Daily Express. h/t TROP

The proposal by bosses at North Manchester General Hospital has caused a furious reaction.

Father Ged Murphy, of St Patrick’s and St Malachy’s parish in Collyhurst, started the petition and it had 1,000 signatures within 26 hours.

His action was prompted by a letter issued to parishes by the Catholic chaplaincy team at the hospital.

The letter from Rev Ray Matus warned: “We write to inform you of a proposal by the Spiritual Care Chaplaincy Team at North Manchester General Hospital to close the Roman Catholic Chapel of St Raphael in order to convert it into a Muslim prayer room.

“Worship spaces are going to be provided for Muslims, Jews and Protestant Christians, and even a ‘Quiet Room’ for people of no faith at all.”Yet it is proposed that Catholics should have no space of their own.” Under the proposals Catholics would share the existing Protestant chapel.Father Murphy said: “We are not against the Muslim community having a prayer room, but don’t see the sense in taking away a chapel that is serving one community to serve another.

There are already two Muslim prayer rooms in the hospital but one, for men, does not have washing facilities.

A hospital spokesman confirmed that one proposal was to convert St Raphael’s into a Muslim prayer room.Manchester councillor Pat Karney said: “I am very disturbed to hear of these plans.”Thousands of Catholic families in north Manchester, including my own, have used this mini chapel. I will be meeting with the hospital bosses to clarify their intentions.”

Florida: Imam who trained jihadist sentenced to time served, released

Another jihad-preaching & teaching imam defended by terror group CAIR.

via Man accused in jihad plot sentenced to time already served – Orlando Sentinel.

A federal judge Friday morning sentenced Marcus Robertson to time served and ordered his release, saying his time in jail was sufficient for both convictions of tax fraud and weapons charges.

Robertson, also known as Abu Taubah, was accused of teaching another man how to participate in jihad missions overseas.

On Friday, U.S. Judge Gregory Presnell sentenced Robertson to a total of 20 months for both convictions.

But Robertson has spent the last three and a half years in prison, according to his attorney Daniel Broderson, which is more time than his actual sentence.

He was convicted on the weapons charge in 2012 and tax fraud in 2014, the judge said.

As a condition of his release, Robertson was put on probation for three years.

“As the judge remarked, he should not have spent that much time in jail based on the crimes he committed,” Broderson said after the sentencing. “He’s going to go on with his life to the best of his ability.”

Robertson had faced increased sentencing of up to 20 years for allegedly promoting terrorism through these crimes.

According to federal prosecutors, Robertson falsified tax documents to fund recruiting efforts for an al-Qaida base overseas.

This allegation was based on seized books, court-authorized surveillance and the man who says Robertson trained him, Jonathan Jimenez.

Jimenez pleaded guilty in 2012 of lying to FBI agents and falsifying income-tax documents, records show.

He is serving a 10-year prison sentence.

Jimenez, who moved to Central Florida with a ninth-grade education, listed three of Robertson’s children as exemptions on tax documents, court records show.

According to prosecutors, the money was to pay for Jimenez’s overseas travel to learn about killing, suicide bombing and identifying military personnel.

Presnell determined there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the terrorism claim.

At Friday’s sentencing, Presnell said he had received hundreds of emails from people asking him to hand down a maximum sentence.

He read one email that said, “Islam must be stopped and redirected back to the Middle East.”

In his comments to the court, Presnell said the U.S. tolerates other religions and that the emails did not affect his decision.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida supported the judge’s decision.

The organization’s chief executive director, Hassan Shibly, spoke after the sentencing on behalf of Robertson and his family.

Robertson returned to Seminole County jail — where he was being held — to collect his belongings and be processed for release, Shibly said.

“The judge sent a strong message to the government that it cannot lock people up for preaching and teaching Islam by falsely misrepresenting possessing Islamic literature and teaching Islam as equating to sympathizing with terrorism,” Shibly said.


Back stories here. This is what CAIR defends with no qualms:

ORLANDO, Fla. — WFTV has uncovered an Orange Countyimam’s past ties to the so-called Blind Sheik, whose extremist group is blamed for the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.

Channel 9’s Kathi Belich broke the story of Marcus Robertson’s arrest last year. On Monday, she obtained new documents in the case that detail even more disturbing information.

Federal prosecutors said Orange County Imam Abu Taubah, aka convicted felon Marcus Robertson, has murdered people, attempted assassinations, took hostages and tried to kill police officers, all to fund attacks on U.S. soil.

So where are the charges?

Last year, months before the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, prosecutors said Robertson planned an attack on U.S. military personnel overseas.

Authorities said Robertson was bodyguard to Omar Abdel Rahman, known as the Blind Sheik. Rahman’s extremist Islamic group was blamed for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Authorities said Robertson led a band of thieves who robbed banks and the government in the 1990s. He was even accused of giving Rahman $300,000 for a much bigger New York attack on the Washington Bridge, tunnels and government buildings.

 

NYPD finally tickets hundreds of cabbies illegally double-parked while praying in mosques

Will Sheik Deblasio void the tickets or fire the officer(s) who gave the tickets? via Hundreds of cabbies ticketed while praying in mosque | New York Post. h/t BNI

The NYPD went on a taxi ticketing blitz outside a mosque on the Upper West Side while drivers were inside reciting Ramadan prayers Friday, The Post learned.

At least one officer handed out nearly 100 tickets on the streets surrounding the Islamic Cultural Center on Riverside Drive near West 72nd Street, said cabby ­Mohammad Zaman.

“This is a special prayer time, a time for religion. We double-park here every Friday and they [allow it], but today they gave us all tickets, almost 100 cabs,” he said.

Zaman, who has been attending services at the mosque for nine years, was slapped with a dreaded orange envelope that held a $115 greeting for double parking.

“This has never happened ­before,” he said.

“I can’t help but to think they are being prejudiced. They don’t understand. We have to be here.”

His ticket incorrectly listed the violation date as Saturday, June 27, he said. The wrong date on the ticket could get him off the hook.

Ramadan this year is observed from June 17 through July 17.

A volunteer at the mosque said cops used to cut cabbies a break.

But this year, “maybe three or four times [this month] I’ve seen them go down the line giving tickets to cabs, and [they’re] getting strict again,” the volunteer said.

An NYPD spokesman said that while individual precincts may make accommodations in extenuating circumstances, such as the Ramadan observation, double parking is never authorized, citing, for example, the need for emergency vehicles to navigate the roads.

A source at the 20th Precinct, which covers the mosque, said he wasn’t aware of an organized ticket blitz.

He added that cops at the precinct have a good relationship with the mosque.

“It is mandatory in our religion to come to the mosque every Friday. It’s our duty. Other places they are OK with double parking — people do it everywhere here — but now they won’t let us? Most of us only come for one hour,” said cabby Mohammad Choudhury.

Driver MD Shomuz, who has been going to the mosque for six years, said, “No one has been given tickets before, but today ­everyone got one.”

“It’s frustrating, but what can I do?” he said.

Middle Eastern Christian Refugees in Europe Bullied, Threatened by Muslim Refugees

The same Syrian Muslims whom Obama is importing to transform towns and cities across America.

via The PJ Tatler Middle Eastern Christian Refugees in Europe Are Bullied, Threatened by Muslim Refugees | PJ Tatler.

A Pakistani Christian, who has fled to the Netherlands, has made a video of life in a refugee center and uploaded it to YouTube. The video has received national attention in the Netherlands because the refugee says he’s regularly bullied and threatened by other refugees, most of whom are Muslim.

He explains:

I am a refugee and live in the refugee center at Gilze en Rijen. There are a lot of Syrian Muslims here who fled the war in their own country. These Muslims have made life impossible for us [red.: for Christian refugees]. I fled from my own country because I thought I’d be safe and welcome here. But I still have to hide here. I contacted the government agency that deals with refugees, but they refuse to intervene. I’ve arrived at a point at which I don’t know what to do.

ChristianUnion MP Joël Voordewind commented after watching the video that this isn’t the first time Christian refugees have complained about Muslim refugees. It happens very often, he says, that radical Muslims take over refugee centers and bully all those who hold different religious beliefs. At the same time, however, they appeal to the Dutch government to get residence permits, saying they aren’t safe in their own countries because of… wait for it: radical Islamic violence.

Although part of the video is in Dutch, the individual fragments are not. The video starts with a short introduction, after which refugee N. Bashir shares scenes he secretly shot when people didn’t know he was filming. In one such scene, the Islamic call for prayer is heard, after which Muslim refugees take over the kitchen to pray. Non-Muslims aren’t allowed to enter the kitchen during prayer times; they have to wait until the Muslims are done with their ritual prayer.

In another scene, one of Bashir’s roommates is seen praying. The man is Muslim, while Bashir and the other roommate are Christian. When Bashir prays (which he does five times a day), the Muslim roommate forces the others to be quiet. If they make a sound, he gets angry with them and starts shouting. As a result, the two Christians don’t dare say or do anything until the other “refugee” is done.

The roommate also tries to irritate and even convert his roommates. He does so by, among other things, playing the Muslim call to prayer loudly on his phone. When his Christian roommates object, he again gets angry and starts shouting.

Lastly, Mr. Bashir recorded a phone call with the authorities about this matter. Like him and his roommate, they are too afraid to intervene, fearing it’ll make the radical Muslim refugees go wild. In the end, a “solution” is offered: the two Christians are allowed to move into another room. Obviously, Mr. Bashir rejects that offer because it means that he, once again, has to take a step back in order to placate fundamentalist Muslims; that’s exactly why he left Pakistan in the first place.

The video and appeal for help have caused a firestorm in the Netherlands, where increasingly more people are worried about the effects of mass-immigration from Muslim countries. Many of these immigrants call themselves refugees, but refuse to assimilate. They’re also, more often than not, fundamentalists themselves who have zero tolerance for people of other faiths.

As many as 50 dead bodies, some decapitated as Muslim terrorists attack African Union troops in Somalia

There’s no fasting from Muslim violence during Ramadan…in fact, it typically increases. via Al-Shabaab kills dozens of African Union troops at base in Somalia | World news | The Guardian.

Dozens of soldiers have been killed after Al-Shabaab overran an African Union base in Somalia, according to witnesses.

People in the village of Lego, about 62 miles north-west of the capital Mogadishu, described intense fighting on Friday which left corpses strewn on the ground. Witnesses said there were as many as 50 bodies, some of which had been decapitated, but this could not be confirmed.

Alinur Mohamed, a local elder, said: “The fighting was the heaviest ever around this area. Al-Shabaab took full control of the base and killed many soldiers.”

The military outpost had been manned by about 100 Burundian soldiers, part of the 22,000-strong African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom).

Residents said the dawn raid began when a suicide bomber drove a car loaded with explosives into the entrance of the base, before dozens of militants armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades unleashed their assault.

Another elder, Ahmed Bulle, said Al-Shabaab fighters were later seen looting the base and loading supplies on to trucks.

He said: “Al-Shabaab took control of the area completely – the death toll could be more than 50. There are many dead bodies, most of them in military uniforms.”

Earlier on Friday, Amisom confirmed the attack but gave no further details as to possible casualties.

An Al-Shabaab spokesman claimed the militants had taken control of the base, killing “dozens”, raised their flag and seized weapons.

Mohamed Abu-Yahya, an Al-Shabaab commander, said: “The Black Islamic flag is flying over the main base of Amisom in Lego this morning and the dead bodies of the enemy are scattered around the area, the mujahideen fighters have taken all their military supplies.”
