Singapore’s founding father: ‘we can integrate all religions and races except Islam’

Recently deceased, he preached ‘Asian values’ and turned a tiny, poor city-state into an astonishing economic success, and had this to say about Islam.

Lee Kuan Yew ranks as one of the most successful statesmen of the 20th century, having led Singapore to independence, and built a thriving prosperous mini-state with a world class economy, out of an ethnically diverse population. He retired as the world’s longest serving prime minister, and at 87 years of age, has little to lose in speaking his mind.

Thus, his candor in discussing the assimilation of Muslims is perhaps understandable, but still startling in a world of political correctness and compulsory sensitivity to Muslims, who are never expected to reciprocate. Singapore has a substantial Muslim minority, mostly Malays but also some Indian Muslims. Throughout its history, Singapore has striven to keep ethnic tensions minimized among its diverse population (ethnic Chinese being the largest group [74%], followed by Malays[13%], Indians, and others — including many westerners). At one point in the 1960s, Lee spearheaded a merger with majority-Muslim Malaysia, but it quickly fell apart.

Now, Lee has published a book on Singapore’s future, and he is speaking his mind:

In the book, Mr Lee, when asked to assess the progress of multiracialism in Singapore, said:

“I have to speak candidly to be of value, but I do not wish to offend the Muslim community.

“I think we were progressing very nicely until the surge of Islam came, and if you asked me for my observations, the other communities have easier integration – friends, intermarriages and so on, Indians with Chinese, Chinese with Indians – than Muslims. That’s the result of the surge from the Arab states.”

He added: “I would say today, we can integrate all religions and races except Islam.”

He also said: “I think the Muslims socially do not cause any trouble, but they are distinct and separate.”

Mr lee then went on to speak of how his own generation of politicians who worked with him had integrated well, including sitting down and eating together. He said: “But now, you go to schools with Malay and Chinese, there’s a halal and non-halal segment and so too, the universities. And they tend to sit separately so as not to be contaminated. All that becomes a social divide.”

He added that the result was a “veil” across peoples. Asked what Muslims in Singapore needed to do to integrate, he replied: “Be less strict on Islamic observances and say ‘Okay, I’ll eat with you.'”

Philly: After losing free speech case, transit authority will end political ads to protect Muslims

via Blog: Philly transit agency to evade federal court decision in attempt to stifle anti-sharia free speech. By Thomas Lifson

Score a (temporary) victory for the right of Americans to point out the Jew-hatred embedded in the foundations of Muslim theology. The American Freedom Defense Initiative, led by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, has won a victory in federal court prohibiting the Southeast Pennsylvania Transit Authority from banning its ads that point out Islamic Jew-hatred. SEPTA, which operates buses and trains around Philadelphia, will not appeal the court decision, but instead will evade it by changing its policy so as to reject all political advertising, thereby avoiding the problem of “viewpoint discrimination” that led the court to decide against it.

Paul Nussbaum writes in the Philadelphia Inquirer:

SEPTA will not appeal a federal court ruling that the transit authority must accept virulently anti-Muslim advertising on its buses, SEPTA officials said Thursday. (snip)

The black-and-white ads proclaim “Jew Hatred: It’s in the Quran” and feature a photograph of a 1941 meeting between Hitler and Hajj Amin al-Husseini, a Palestinian Arab nationalist who made radio broadcasts supporting the Nazis.

The ad will start appearing on the sides of 84 SEPTA buses as early as next week and will be displayed for a month, under terms of a $30,000 contract, SEPTA officials said.

The ad was produced by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, a New Hampshire-based nonprofit organization, which argued in legal filings that the ad was germane and timely “in light of the fact that many Jews (and Christians) are being persecuted in Islamic countries in the Middle East.”

U.S. District Judge Mitchell S. Goldberg ruled March 11 that because SEPTA had accepted other political and controversial ads on public issues, it could not refuse to accept the Hitler ad. (snip)

SEPTA officials said they decided it was unwise to spend the money to pursue an appeal they were likely to lose, especially since the loser in the case would have to pay the legal fees for both sides.

Writing in Breitbart, Pamela Geller explains:

Victory! But don’t applaud too loudly. The Philly transit authority has declared they will no long accept political ads. The Geller Ban is back. This is not the first time city authorities have changed the rules in response to an AFDI free speech victory.

Longtime supporters of my work are familiar with my numerous court cases in the defense of free speech. Now, after winning another such case, we are about to run our first ad campaign in Philadelphia, and apparently our last. (snip)

Time and time again, various city officials and dictatorial bureaucrats have censored or banned outright our ads of truth and freedom, while allowing the most fallacious and libelous anti-Jewish, pro-jihad message to run. The mainstream media piles on, as in thePhiladelphia Inquirer story about this rule change, which calls our ads “virulently anti-Muslim,” without ever bothering to discover whether or not Islamic Jew-hatred really is in the Qur’an, or to consider whether it is really wise of the U.S. government to give aid to countries that encourage that hatred.

Sharia law prohibits criticism of Mohammed or Islam, and to a shocking degree American governmental entities do their best to comply.  SEPTA tells the Inquirer that it worries about vandalism, which is capitulating to bullies, or, as it is called in court, the “heckler’s veto.”  Bullying is part and parcel of the way Islam deals with its critics, and because establishing the global caliphate is the aim, many Muslims will not rest until they succeed in stifling all criticism, regardless of First Amendment guarantees in this country.

 

How Muslim Brotherhood Operates in Tennessee (Part 1 of 8)

via Tennesse Council 4 Political Justice.

Introduction

There are Islamists living in Tennessee who are top tier leaders in ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), one of the unindicted co-conspirator organizations named by the Muslim Brotherhood in its plan for the U.S.. This plan was exposed during the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing prosecution.

There are Islamists living in Tennessee who are individually named in that same Muslim Brotherhood plan, and Islamists who have served in executive positions with Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR and the MAS (Muslim American Society), both designated as terrorist organizations by the UAE.

CAIR’s executive director who visits Tennessee has publicly voiced his support for HAMAS. CAIR has inserted itself multiple times in Tennessee events, even trying to prevent Tennessee citizens from exercising First Amendment rights to free speech and free assembly. In 2013 CAIR’s Michigan director was brought to Nashville to train Muslim high school students in political activism. Currently CAIR has a de facto office in Nashville since its former CAIR-Houston director registered as a Tennessee lobbyist and is running the American Center for Outreach (ACO).

cair-mbhood-links

A former CAIR intern worked with the UT Knoxville MSA (Muslim Students Association) and was on the faculty of the private Islamic school in Knoxville. Another former CAIR chapter leader was the self-appointed Vanderbilt University Muslim chaplain who confirmed during a public event that he must abide by Islamic law that commands death for homosexuals.

Guest speakers known to be radical Islamists have been brought to Tennessee with messages like “Islam is better than democracy” and that under sharia law “the kafir [non-Muslims] won’t be equal with the Muslim.”

Deeds to some Tennessee mosques list Muslim Brotherhood front groups. Imams preaching inside the mosques are trained in Saudi Arabia where the strictest form of sharia law is practiced or are trained at Al-Azhar University in Egypt, which is credited with starting the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood movement, promoting Islam and sharia as a complete way of life.

Tennessee even has a mosque whose mortgage is held by an organization working on behalf of the Iranian government.

Tennessee is home to the leader of an Islamic organization which shares many attributes with the Holy Land Foundation that was shut down by the U.S. government for providing material support to HAMAS.

***************

Our elected and appointed political leaders should be required to receive complete and factual information about the Muslim Brotherhood and its front groups operating in Tennessee because these groups represent the politics of Islam. These groups and individuals should be exposed.

Our citizens should also know these facts. Watch for the next seven installments in this series.

Montreal: Anti-Islamization Rally Canceled Over Fears of…Islamic Violence

Proving once again that Islam is not about peace but rather about intimidation, violence and domination. via Pegida Cancels Montreal Rally at Police Advice Over Safety Concerns

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Pegida (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West) cancelled its planned rally in Montreal after police advised those who showed up for the event to leave, as a counter-demonstration had been organized on the spot, the group has announced.

“PEGIDA Quebec had to cancel its peaceful march,” the group said on its Facebook page, explaining that the decision was motivated by safety concerns and was made “at the advice of police.”

Hundreds of people reportedly showed up for a counter-demonstration against islamophobia in Montreal on Saturday, about 30 minutes before the Pegida march was set to begin in the same spot.

“We all know the Allah fanatics and how they can be violent,” Pegida’s Facebook message said.

The group added that it does not know the exact number of people who actually showed up for the planned Pegida Montreal march on Saturday. According to its Facebook page, 184 people RSVP’d to the event.

Pegida Canada Calls for Reformation of Islam, Plans March in Toronto

Pegida said that those who showed up for its Saturday march were “immediately intercepted by the police upon arrival” with the officers advising them “to leave for good.”

The group also said that it is preparing for a second rally, to be held in the same place — Little Maghreb neighborhood in Montreal’s suburbs — on April 4.

On Thursday, a source at Pegida Canada told Sputnik they were planning a rally in Toronto but did not specify a date.

 

Dearborn: Judge tells parole-violating, ISIS-recruiting Muslim cleric to disclose finances

via AlohaSnackBar.

(WXYZ) Detroit – A controversial Dearborn cleric, on probation for fraud, and on the U.S. government’s radar for his extreme views, must tell the feds where and from whom his income is coming from.

They believe he is hiding assets and information.

Ahmad Jebril has failed to pay the majority of the nearly $250,000 in restitution he owes after facing 42 charges of financial fraud, they say.

Jebril’s probation is set to come to an end in mere days. He has refused to answer the U.S. Attorney’s questions, they claim. His attorney was fighting the call that he be forced to testify to his financials. Its believed he may have lied to his probation officer, and testifying could lead to new charges.

Judge Rosen said today—too bad. He wants Jebril to testify, but with some protections. That’s to be discussed tomorrow in further detail.

Jebril, who was reading what appeared to be a copy of the Quran in court, refused to comment, and walked away from 7 Action News cameras after court.

The 7 Investigators have reported extensively on Jebril over the past year. He is known for advocating Jihad and influencing hundreds of thousands of ISIS followers on social media.

Today, Judge Rosen made it clear, he does not trust Jebril, who has violated his parole on other occasions, lying about his whereabouts and his online activity.


The judge stated he’s violated numerous parole stipulations. Why isn’t he in jail? He’s a known ISIS recruiter and sympathizer, why is he not in jail?

UK: Police Cover-up of Muslim Sex Trafficking in Sheffield is ‘Bigger Than Rotherham’

via Police Cover-up of Child Sex Abuse in Sheffield ‘Bigger Than Rotherham’ – Breitbart.

South Yorkshire Police has covered up abuse on a “massive” scale in the former industrial city turned multicultural melting-pot, a retired veteran police officer has claimed, remarking in an interview the abuse was “bigger than Rotherham”.

The revelation by the former officer, who served for thirty years, could be yet another in a long line of emerging child sex scandals in predominantly northern English cities with sizeable Pakistani populations. It is not the first such revelation for South Yorkshire Police, who also failed to detect and prosecute criminal abuse in the city of Rotherham, where 1,400 known girls were trafficked and raped by a network of criminals using take-away shops and minicab firms to enable their activities.

A Sheffield city council employee tasked with tracking child sex abuse has claimed almost 700 children were referred to the police in just two years, but not a single prosecution was made on the back of the information passed to the police.

Retired constable Tony Brooks has come forward with the allegations, and has said South Yorkshire Police have long known that girls as young as twelve – putting them into the most serious category of sex abuse – were being raped, but chose not to act on the information they had, effectively creating a cover-up. Claiming 200 girls were reported to have been abused in just a three year period in the city, he told the BBC “The size of the exploitation was massive in Sheffield.

“We offered to form a unit to continue the work – we offered to advertise our work so girls would come forward. We were told, ‘it’s not going to happen, return to your districts.”

“He said to me, ‘go and spend an hour or two with each girl and find out what’s happened to them and tell them there’s not enough evidence to go on”. The officer refused to follow the order.

Police analyst Gary Birchall, who also spoke to the BBC, expressed his disbelief after he learnt of the extent of the cover-up. He was asked as part of his work to look into a special operation run by the South Yorkshire Police, and paid for by Sheffield city council which was tasked with looking into child sex abuse. He found that despite it having been specifically requested and funded to the tune of £50,000, the operation had been shelved almost immediately with officers reassigned to other work.

He requested a “full investigation” into the failure, but his call went unheeded. Speaking on the matter, he said: “I got a call telling me the operation’s been shelved. I said it can’t be shelved, there’s evidence here that children are being trafficked, being sexually abused. There isn’t a superlative that describes how I felt then or how I feel now. Utter, utter, disbelief.”


Rape gangs have assaulted more than a million young girls in the UK where whistleblowers were given “race awareness training” and ignored.

 

Illinois: National Guard member & cousin, both Muslims, arrested in plot to attack US military post, kill 100’s

A US Army National Guard solider and his cousin have been arrested for attempting to join ISIS and planning a ‘Charlie Hebdo’ style terrorist attack on home soil.

Specialist Hasan Edmonds, 22, a U.S. citizen and member of the Illinois National Guard, was arrested on Wednesday at Chicago Midway International Airport by members of the Chicago FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) while trying to fly to Cairo, Egypt, the Department of Justice said in a statement.

His cousin, Jonas Edmonds, 29, who is also a U.S. citizen, was arrested without incident at his home in Aurora, Illinois, on the same day.

The pair have posed for pictures together on Facebook, while Hasan has uploaded images of his tattoos.

The statement added: ‘Both defendants were charged in a criminal complaint filed yesterday in U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Illinois with one count of conspiring to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization.’

Jonas

In late 2014, Hasan came to the attention of the FBI. The investigation subsequently revealed that he and Jonas had allegedly devised a plan for Hasan to wage violence on behalf of ISIL.

Hasan, a current member of the Illinois Army National Guard, planned to use his military training to fight.

As part of their plans, Hasan booked an airline ticket to travel on Wednesday from Chicago and arrive in Cairo on Thursday, with layovers in Detroit and Amsterdam.

According to the criminal complaint, both defendants also planned for Jonas to carry out an act of terrorism in the United States after Hasan had left.

The pair allegedly met with an FBI undercover employee and presented a plan to carry out an armed attack against a U.S. military facility in northern Illinois, an installation where Hasan had been training.

The agent had reached out to Hasan and added him on Facebook.

Jonas asked the FBI undercover employee to assist in the attack and explained that they would use Hasan’s uniforms and the information he supplied about how to access the installation and target officers for attack.

According to the documents he saw a body count of between 100 and 150. Hasan said it would be closer to 120.

The FBI complaint added that the pair said: ‘Honestly we would love to do something like the brothers in Paris did’ – referring to the attack on the headquarters of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

If convicted, they face a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Jonas already was convicted of conspiracy to commit armed robbery and served five years in a Georgia prison between 2005 and 2010.

Hasan Edmonds allegedly wrote “I am already in the american kafir army (back when I was still in this dunyah and not muslim) and now I wish only to serve in the army of Allah alongside my true brothers.” Kafir means infidel and dunyah means “of this world,” according to the feds.

“I joined the united states army national guard about 3 years ago. I still currently have 3 years left that I have no intention what so ever of fulfilling.”

In another Facebook chat he wrote, “I am no expert with our weapons but I can get the job done.”

“I pray to just one time step foot in the land ruled by the Law of the Quran but I am content to fight and die here in the cause of Allah whenever the target is set and the order is given. InshaAllah my brothers will march with me as well.”

The feds say Hasan Edmonds wrote that his cousin, who has served time in a Georgia prison, would “put the fear of Allah in their hearts and minds right here in the homeland.”

“I can own handguns shotguns and rifles but no automatic weapons or heavy machine guns,” he allegedly wrote in another online chat. “We have plenty people here who have them and hide them so we will do the same.”

“It would be hard to pull off a lager scale attack on the government but police stations and courts are pretty easy and it’s been done before by kufar sometimes just one person.”

He allegedly hoped that the attack in Illinois would have a similar effect to the attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris earlier this year. “Honestly we would love to do something like the brother in Paris did,” he wrote in one message, the feds say.

And on Tuesday, both cousins met with the undercover agent and traveled to Hasan Edmonds’ National Guard base. “When they arrived, the three discussed, among other things, where soldiers at the installation trained,” the complaint states.

“Also during this meeting, Hasan Edmonds described the inside of the installation and which rooms they should avoid during the attack. Hasan Edmonds also entered the installation and retrieved a military training schedule, which he then gave to Jonas Edmonds.”

Lt. Col. Brad Leighton, the public affairs director of the Illinois National Guard, said that Hasan Edmonds reported to the guard’s Joliet base one weekend a month and that he did two weeks of active-duty training, typically in the summer.

He enlisted in August 2011 and had never deployed, but worked as a supply specialist that was part of a logistics unit that provides supplies and other services to the 33rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Leighton said. He added that Edmonds had last reported for duty earlier this month, but said that the guard’s focus was on “ensuring the safety of our soldiers, airmen and their families.”
