Iran Vehemently Denies that Its Foreign Minister Opposes a Second Holocaust

NRO, By Andrew C. McCarthy:

Whew, glad they cleared this one up.

The Washington Free Beacon notes that, in an outbreak of temporary sanity, Iranian foreign minister (and John Kerry negotiating partner) Javad Zarif asserted that the “Holocaust should not happen again” and that “the extermination of Jews by the Nazi regime was tragically cruel and should not happen again.”

Publication of these sentiments provoked great outrage in the Islamic republic and now, top Iranian officials are vehemently denying that Zarif said any such thing. According to the Iran’s state-run Fars News Agency, Zarif’s deputy, Hassan Qashqavi, insists that the reports are “not true,” and that “in a phone conversation that I had with Mr. Zarif, he completely rejected the remarks attributed to him.” Qashqavi stressed that “the Islamic republic’s stance” on Israel “has not changed” a bit from “what has been repeatedly announced by this country’s diplomacy apparatus.”

That stance, of course, is that Israel must be destroyed.

The Islamic republic regrets any confusion. We now return to the Obama administration’s regularly scheduled legitimization of a nuclear program for the world’s leading sponsor of jihadist terror.

London Holocaust Day Speaker Admires Hitler, Despises Jews

Arutz Sheva, by Colin Cortbus, Gil Ronen & Ari Soffer 1/27/2014

An interfaith group which works to combat political and religious extremism in the UK has raised awkward questions about the way anti-Semites “use” holocaust memorials to “sanitize” their own images, even as they actively engage in anti-Jewish bigotry.

On Holocaust Memorial Day in 2013, a young British Muslim named Hassan Farouq was a participant in the official Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony at London’s City Hall. During the ceremony he read out a text about the importance of reflecting upon the consequences of the Holocaust and remembering the victims of Nazi persecution.

Yet Stand for Peace today released clear evidence of Farooq’s own rabid anti-Semitic views, including open glorification of Nazism and Adolf Hitler, and questions whether London officials who approved his participation in the ceremony ascribe any value to Holocaust Memorial Day at all.

Hassan Farooq – Nazi sympathiser

 

“I look up to Hitler”

As part of its investigation, Stand for Peace has published a slew of offensive tweets made by Farooq. They include the following:

“The hour will not come until the Muslims kill the Jews.”

“Let’s go Jewish bashing.”

“Oh hypocrisy nothing new its in his blood after all you can’t blame him he’s a Jew”

“I look up 2 Hitler :p”

“Hitler: I can kill 10000 by putting them into gas chambers B-)”

“Gassing is my hobby”

Support for terrorism

Apart from anti-Semitic tweets, Farooq has also expressed his extremist views on Facebook, including a passionate defense of the infamous Woolwich terrorists who murdered off-duty British soldier Lee Rigby.

In another message on Twitter, he defended extremist preacher Anjem Choudary, who was recently implicated as being a key player behind an Islamist network actively recruiting young British Muslims to fight in Syria.

Farooq also posted messages against women and homosexuals.

One way of “remembering the Holocaust” Screenshot – Stand for Peace

According to Stand for Peace, Hassan Farooq is a “senior member” of the Newham Dawah Team, an East London-based Islamic missionary organization which attempts to spread the message of Islam.

In 2009 students at NewVic Sixth Form College, which Farooq attended, released a video featuring calls in Arabic for a “war against the Jews”.

‘War against the Jews’

 

Newham Dawah Team is part of the Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) Network, and its officials regularly liaise with iERA officials such as Abdurraheem Green. The iERA is an extremist Salafi group, some of whose officials have been banned from the UK. In the past – despite his apparent work with various “interfaith” initiatives – Abdurraheem Green has been quoted as talking of a Jewish “stench” and advocates the killing of homosexuals.

Sam Westrop, Director of Stand for Peace, questioned how “such a solemn and important duty can be entrusted to a vile extremist who does not even try to hide his hatred for Jews, women and homosexuals?” and suggested that the apparently puzzling contradiction in Farooq’s action is actually nothing new.

“Once again, anti-Semitic activists are attempting to exploit the commemoration of the Holocaust to sanitize their public image,” he explained,but added that “the facade is a thin one.”

Westrop questioned the commitment of the event’s organizers, given that Farooq apparently made little effort to hide his anti-Semitism.

“The public officials who chose this extremist clearly do not believe the Holocaust Day Memorial has any real value, or they would have made the minimal effort to ensure suitable speakers were found.”‏

Stand for Peace recently published a comprehensive document detailing how Islamist groups with openly bigoted agendas and support for terrorism are similarly whitewashing their images by “monopolizing” interfaith efforts, and using the opportunity to sideline moderate voices within the Muslim community.

The International Holocaust Remembrance Day Charade

w-holocaust-day-450x303by :

President Barack Obama joined in the commemorations of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day (the day the Red Army liberated Auschwitz, January 27, 1945), issuing a statement that urged the nation and the world to remember the victims of the Holocaust.  His statement said “We recall six million Jews and millions of other innocent victims who were murdered in Nazi death camps. We mourn lives cut short and communities torn apart.” Obama added, “In our lives, we always have choices. In our time, this means choosing to confront bigotry and hatred in all its forms, especially anti-Semitism.” Obama’s statement talked about doing our part to ensure that survivors receive some measure of justice.

While President Obama’s words are praiseworthy, his recent actions in striking a deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, which is dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish state, and pressuring Israel to make dangerous concessions to the Palestinians, is placing the Jewish state in jeopardy. The Obama administration must recognize the fact that to ensure survivors receive ‘some measure of justice’ means protecting the Jewish state, and the living Jews from another Holocaust. The anti-Semites of this world, whether in the halls of the U.N. or in Tehran, Ramallah, or Gaza, want nothing better than to annihilate the Jewish state.

The State of Israel is the “collective Jew,” and home to the majority of Holocaust survivors. The charade that the U.N. puts on annually on January 27, called the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, cannot obscure its deliberate and vicious anti-Semitism practiced by the majority of this body, and its affiliated agencies, targeting exclusively the Jewish state.

Addressing the U.N. delegates in January, 2005, on the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, Israel’s foreign minister at the time, Sylvan Shalom reminded the delegates that the U.N. Charter meant to insure against another Holocaust. “The very first clauses of the UN Charter bear witness to the understanding of the founders, that this new international organization (The United Nations, JP) must serve as the world’s answer to evil (of the Nazi holocaust JP), that it comes, and I quote: ‘to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights and the dignity and worth of the human person.’ ”

The current Israeli ambassador to the U.N., Ron Prosor, had this to say on Monday, January 27, 2014. “The U.N. marks the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, but the hatred that is disseminated by (certain) governments only shows that the organization (the U.N., JP) has yet to internalize the lessons of the Holocaust.  Nearly 70 years since the end of World War II, we are still witnesses to the phenomena of racism and anti-Semitism that rears its head around the world.”  Prosor pointed out that anti-Semitism has not been eradicated, and its venom is being expressed in sermons by Palestinian Authority (PA) clerics, in PA educational institutions, textbooks, and in speeches by leaders around the world. He accused Gaza based Hamas of perpetuating anti-Jewish propaganda, and specified that “Palestinian children learn that the lives of Jews are worth less.”

On the eve of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Israeli government received its annual report on anti-Semitism worldwide. It appears from the report that there has been a worrisome increase in anti-Semitism, according to 76% of the respondents. The report presented by Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, shows that the highest percentage of reported anti-Semitic activities are in Hungary, France, Belgium, and Sweden. The situation is less severe in Italy, Germany, and Britain. In Hungary, the respondents pointed to the extreme Right as the most threatening to Jews, whereas in France and Belgium, radical Muslims are the major source of anti-Semitic hate. 69 years after the liberation of Auschwitz, European Jews live once again in fear.

If aliens stumbled upon the U.N. debates, read its resolutions, or walked the U.N. halls, they would clearly conclude that the sole purpose of this world body is to censure a tiny Jewish state called Israel. The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which is a non-voting observer to the U.N., is the second largest intergovernmental organization after the U.N, and can count on the votes of 57 Islamic states as its members. Along with the Third World member states, the OIC is almost guaranteed to master an “automatic majority.” Until the fall of the Soviet Union, that majority could add the Soviet Bloc, and in 1975, following a steady drumbeat of anti-Israel declarations, the U.N. General Assembly adopted the resolution that “Zionism is Racism.”

European Anti-Semitism and the Fear of Muslims

by Timon Dias:

When European history teachers omit the Holocaust from their curriculum, they do not do this because they hate their Jewish students more than their Muslim students. They omit it because they are afraid of their Muslim students. They might also believe they do it to be “nice,” but then how come this same “niceness” is not afforded to the Jews?

In the “Stockholm Syndrome,” now seen, ironically, in Sweden, victims start bonding with their abusers in the wish that if they share the same values as their abusers, their abusers might stop abusing them. “We must be open and tolerant toward Islam and Muslims because when we become a minority, they will be so toward us.” — Jens Orback, former Swedish government minister.

The European Union [EU] is singling out Israel for sanctions. Not only are the officials at the EU failing to boycott other regions that legally count as occupied territories, but they are actively aiding at least one clearly occupying power, Turkey, in the Turkish-occupied northern Cyprus: in 2006, the EU approved a $259 million aid package for the Turkish Cypriot community there. In addition to that double-standard, the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Catherine Ashton, has revealed noticeable prejudice on multiple occasions, the latest example being when she felt compelled to compare the Toulouse massacre to “what’s happening in Gaza,” any similarities to which would objectively be hard to come by.

Is there, then, an EU tendency to be anti-Semitic? As Thomas Friedman once wrote “Criticizing Israel is not anti-Semitic, and saying so is vile. But singling out Israel for opprobrium and international sanction out of all proportion to any other party in the Middle East is anti-Semitic, and not saying so is dishonest.”

Recently, a shocking development was reported on in Belgium by Peter Martino, in which elementary schools are using government approved anti-Semitic textbooks for their history classes. That report recalled a Belgian girl in 2008, who wore a small star of David around her neck, and told the author she had just been refused entry to a bus in Belgium by a bus driver who said that, as a Muslim, he could not allow her to enter the bus. In the 21st century, in Western Europe, a girl was turned away from a public bus because she was a Jew.

What still stings me is that I did not take her seriously; what she said, however, has proven anything but far fetched. A 2011 study by Mark Elchardus, relates that one out of every two Muslim students in Brussels — half — are anti-Semitic. A recent study roughly replicated the same results for the Belgian cities of Ghent and Antwerp. Conversely, Belgium is also the country that is allowing Abou Jahjah, founder of the Arab-European League, a known anti-Semite and Hezbollah affiliate, accused of instigating riots and forming a private militia, to return to Belgium after having left it for Lebanon in 2006 to “fight off the foreign invasion” alongside Hezbollah. A country in which officials teach schoolchildren that the Holocaust was similar to “what’s happening in Gaza”; that accepts the return of a man who was part of a foreign hostile fighting force and says he “felt a sense of victory” on 9/11, is indeed likely to become a country where a girl is refused entry on a bus because she is Jewish.

How is this dynamic to be explained? Besides the latent or active anti-Semitism that might drive EU leaders in their unequally-applied conduct toward Israel — as opposed to other nations such as Turkey that are committing the same alleged offense — another explanation is worth exploring.

The author Ali Salim recently began a popular article with: “We Muslims make the mistake of thinking Europeans really care about us, especially the Palestinians. We are wrong. Europeans simply hate the Jews more than they hate and fear us.”

Although possible, it might also be worth to consider, an alternative explanation: that many Europeans fear Muslims more than they fear Jews, and therefore give in to anti-Semitic tendencies. When European history teachers, for example, omit the Holocaust from their curriculum in order not to offend Muslim students, they do not do that because they hate their Jewish students more than they hate their Muslim students. They do it because they are terrified of their Muslim students.

Muslims Need to Confront Muslim Evil

MW-BI908_Kenya__20130922102653_MG-450x332By Dennis Prager:

With this weekend’s massacre by Muslim terrorists at a mall in Nairobi, Kenya, and Muslim terrorists killing about 80 Christians at a Christian church in Pakistan, most people wonder what, if anything in addition to a continuing war on terror, can be done to minimize the scourge of Islamic terror.

The answer lies with Muslims themselves. Specifically, it means that Muslim religious leaders around the world must announce that any Muslim who deliberately targets non-combatants for death goes to hell.

I arrive at this answer based on something that I have long believed about Pope Pius XII and the Holocaust.

I readily acknowledge that the situations are not the same. The Jews of Europe were not annihilated by Catholics in the name of Catholicism; whereas the Christians, Muslims and Jews who are massacred by Islamic terrorists are murdered by Muslims in the name of Islam.

I also readily acknowledge that many of the attacks on Pope Pius XII for his alleged inaction and even collaboration with the Nazis during the Holocaust are animated by individuals who hate Western religion generally or hate the Catholic Church specifically. Pius XII was not “Hitler’s Pope,” as one best-selling book on Pius XII is titled.

Moreover, Pius XII lived in Italy during World War II, in a fascist dictatorship that began as Hitler’s ally and ended up being the target of Nazi atrocities. This was not the case with President Franklin D. Roosevelt, for example, who lived in the safety of a free country six-thousand miles away from Germany, did nothing to save the Jews of Europe, and even sent a boatload of Jewish refugees from Hitler back to Europe. Yet the critics of Pius are silent about Roosevelt.

Nevertheless, Pius could have done more to at least slow down the Holocaust. And I say this recognizing that Italy’s Catholic clergy saved many Jews, and that Pius, to his credit, had to be aware of this. What he could have and should have done was to announce that any Catholic — and any Christian for that matter — who in any way helps in the murder of innocent Jews is committing a mortal sin and will not attain salvation. In other words, he or she will go to hell.

This would have had no impact on the many Germans and other Europeans who had no belief in God or religion; but it would have had an impact on many who did.

I believe the same thing regarding Muslim terror. Muslim leaders — specifically, every imam in the world who is not a supporter of terror, the leaders of the most important Sunni institutions, such as the Al-Azhar Mosque and University in Cairo, and religious leaders in Saudi Arabia and the in Gulf states — must announce that any Muslim who participates in any deliberate attack on civilians goes to hell.

This must be announced as clearly and as repeatedly as, for example, Muslim condemnations of Israel.

Just as the promise of immediate entrance into paradise animates many Muslim terrorists, the promise of immediate hell would dissuade many Muslims from committing acts of terrorism.

Dutch Muslim Youths Praise Hitler, Claim Millions of Palestinians Are Being Killed

FullBlownAntiSemEurope230x1

via Algemeiner:

A video that appeared on Dutch TV recently shows a roundtable of adults and children discussing Jews. The children, who are Muslim Turks, praise Hitler and his genocidal inclinations. One of the boys says, “on the one hand I am satisfied with what Hitler did with the Jews…” while another responds that Hitler was justified in killing millions of Jews because “now millions of Palestinians are being killed.”

The four young boys are joined in a roundtable by an older gentleman (identified as Mehmet Sahin, a researcher at Amsterdam’s Vrije Universiteit) who repeatedly challenges their assertions. When one of the boys asks the interviewer if he hates Jews, they seem surprised when he responds in the negative.

Later, the same boy who originally praised Hitler, says, ” as far as I’m concerned Hitler should have killed all Jews, ” a remark that merited laughs from the group of boys.

The interviewer, who repeatedly expresses his indignation at the boys’ opinions, ask them where they got their hatred for the Jews from–”from friends” they answer, noting that the term “Jew” is used as a curse word and that nobody at their school likes Jews.

Later during the conversation the interviewer calls the boys “pathetic.”

A Dutch Jewish group has called on Holland’s government to probe anti-Semitism in high schools in response to the video.

Watch Webinar: ‘Hitler’s Islamist Allies and the War Today”

Haj Iman al Husseini and Adolf Hitler

RadicalIslam.org‘s latest live webinar, “Hitler’s Islamist Allies and the War Today: The History Lesson That Wasn’t in Your School Textbook,” is now available on the above video.

The webinar’s presenter is RadicalIslam.org‘s National Security Analyst Ryan Mauro, who delves into the past and present history of the Muslim Brotherhood to prepare us to confront this alarmingly powerful and growing movement today.

The Brotherhood is dedicated to the establishment of a worlwide Islamic caliphate, which will subjugate every nation to Sharia (Islamic) law. The Brotherhood is a brutal movement, which hides it’s ideology in the guise of “moderation” in order to infiltrate Western society in a non-threatening way, as explicited stated by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory Memorandum on their strategic goals.

In the U.S., the Brotherhood has set up a series front organizations which present themselves as Muslim rights groups dedicated to fighting so-called “Islamophobia.” But their stated goal “to wage a grand jihad” to bring America down from within.

Depictions of 9/11 Now an Islamophobic Hate Crime in New Jersey

timecover-263x350By :

The Muslim Student Association is an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. All three leaders of Al Qaeda were members of the Muslim Brotherhood… including Osama bin Laden. The MSA has been involved in funding terrorists and a large number of MSA presidents have gone on to join Al Qaeda.

But what is additionally troubling about this story is that the mere depiction of September 11 is now considered a hate crime.

Montclair State University is investigating a bias incident in which someone drew a picture of planes hitting the World Trade Center on the door of a Muslim student group’s headquarters, campus officials said today.

The graffiti was found Monday outside the Office of the Muslim Student Association in the student center, said Suzanne Bronski, a campus spokeswoman.

“The university police immediately launched a full investigation, which is continuing, and the university’s Bias Response Team was appropriately alerted and has been involved,” university officials said in a statement.

Graffiti is straightforward vandalism and campus police rarely investigate the things that students scrawl on walls and doors. They were common in my time and I suspect they are even more common today. There’s no mention of whether this was done with paint or a marker, but I suspect it was the latter, which means it’s easy enough to clean off.

Is scrawling a depiction of 9/11 on the door of a Muslim organization linked to that terrorist attack by way of its ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda a hate crime?

Is it Muslims in general that are being targeted or the MSA, an organization with a long history of supporting extremist hate and terrorism?

The Montclair MSA appears to fundraise for Islamic Relief. Islamic Relief was founded by Hany El Banna who talks about being inspired by Sayyid Qutb and other Islamists and his charity has been accused of having terrorist links. And it may have even received money from Osama bin Laden.

The Montclair MSA has invited in Sheik Qatanani to speak to students. The Sheik is both a member of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. It invited Lauren Booth, who is an open supporter of Hamas and the Brotherhood.

But let’s get past the Montclair MSA’s willingness to host terrorist group members and supporters and get to the point.

The MSA has always argued that its attacks on Israel are political and protected by free speech. So when the MSA depicts Israel as a Nazi state and terrorists as heroes, it is practicing free speech. The MSA in conjunction with SJP has picketed Holocaust memorials while screaming hate. But that’s not a bias incident. That’s free speech.

So why is a picture of the worst Muslim atrocity in American history a bias incident?

If the MSA has the right to desecrate the Holocaust without it being a bias incident, if it has the right to accuse Jewish students of being Nazis, why is accusing the MSA of being linked to terrorism a hate crime?

Especially when it’s true.

Meet Al Jazeera’s Holocaust-Denying Televangelist…Is This What We Can Expect on the New Current TV?

stop al JazeeraBy

By now many have heard about Al Jazera’s recent acquisition of Current TV, Al Gore’s floundering television network that has, since its inception in 2005, displayed not only abysmal ratings but also blatant anti-Israel and anti-U.S. bias.

Ironically, The Blaze sought to purchase Current, but was rebuffed by its executives who stated that they could not in good conscience sell out to a network whose point of view was not aligned with theirs. Thus, the only reasonable step for Gore and company was to seal a multi-million dollar deal with Al Jazeera, because, according to Current co-founder Joel Hyatt, the Qatar-based network “was founded with the same goals we had for Current.”

So what, exactly, are those shared goals and values? And what might a revamped Al Jazeera-led lineup at the new (and likely not so improved) Current TV look like?

A glimpse at Al Jazeera’s highest-rated program to date might give us an inkling into what lies ahead and it is cringe-inducing (though not surprising) to say the least.

Current: Meet Muslim Brotherhood spiritual sherpa and Al Jazeera’s top performing Islamic televangelist Youssef al-Qaradawi, best known for repeatedly twisting the Holocaust into a mold that suits his Islamic agenda and for declaring that his greatest hope is simply to live long enough to “shoot dead Allah’s enemies, the Jews.” The prolific imam has also issued hundreds of fatwas on everything from homosexuality to music to the role of female suicide bombers in their noble pursuit of jihad.

In light of Hyatt’s disturbing statement concerning his network’s shared goals with Al Jazeera, it is perhaps prudent to review the latter’s star talent, who has graced the homes of some 60 million viewers for the past 15 years with his weekly program ”Shariah and Life.”

 Qaradawi 3Qaradawi’s Anti-Semitism

Returning to Qaradawi’s long-harbored desire to live long enough so that Allah might grant him the singular opportunity of personally slaying Jewish people, the imam stated during a televised speech:

“I’d like to say that the only thing I hope for is that as my life approaches its end, Allah will give me an opportunity to go to the land of Jihad and resistance, even if in a wheelchair. I will shoot Allah’s enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus, I will seal my life with martyrdom. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. Allah’s mercy and blessings upon you.”

According to Qaradawi, for their inherent ”evil,” Allah imposed upon the Jews a series of “punishments,” the last one led by Adolf Hitler “by means of all the things he did to them.”

“He [Hitler] managed to put them in their place.”

“This [the Holocaust] was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers,” Qaradawi stated proudly during a televised broadcast in 2009.

The imam openly praised the fuhrer for teaching the Jews “a divine lesson” while in the same breath minimizing the Holocaust by saying that the Jewish people have “exaggerated the issue.”

So, the imam uses the Shoah in a way that suits him, in a way that furthers his agenda, while at the same time denying the true extent of the carnage lest he engender any “undue” sympathy for the Jewish people.

Anti-Semitic diatribes such as the one featured above are just a small taste of what Qaradawi has offered on his weekly Sunday broadcasts.

So who is Qaradawi?

According to lore, Qaradawi is no ordinary imam or mufti, having allegedly memorized the entire Quran by age 10. He was born in Egypt in 1926, graduated from Al Azhar University in Cairo and by 1942 joined the Muslim Brotherhood, the grandfather of all major militant Islamic groups including Hamas, Hezbollah and al Qaeda.

The imam was arrested several times for the activities he carried out while with the Brotherhood and subsequently fled to Qatar in 1961, where he still resides. He has become the preeminent Muslim (or at least Sunni) “authority” on all things Islam, covering a range of topics from “mother’s milk banks” to the right of every Palestinian woman to offer herself up as a suicide-bombing martyr.

Qaradawi and the Muslim Brotherhood

Qaradawi’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood stem back to his days as a student at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, where he met Brotherhood-founder (and not coincidentally, Hitler admirer) Hassan al-Banna. Banna was perhaps the first to offer Qaradawi a glimpse into alternative views on the handling of societies ills and “perversions.”

Despite living in exile in Qatar — something that is more than likely to change now that his progeny,

Mohammed Morsi is at the helm in Egypt — Qaradawi has the Brotherhood leader’s ear, acting as his key spiritual adviser. While the imam turned down an official position with the Brotherhood, allegedly because he felt his true calling was to evangelize Islam, he still greatly influences the grandfather of all jihadist groups to this day, and in no small way.

Consider that as recently as 2010 Morsi viciously referred to Israeli Jews as “blood-suckers” and  ”descendants of apes and pigs,” invoking age-old anti-Semitic slurs. Here, we see Hitler’s influence via al Banna and later, Qaradawi, weaving its web of hate and vitriol over today’s Islamic leaders.

Morsi called on Muslims “outside Palestine” to “support the resistance fighters and besiege the Zionist wherever they are.”

“None of the Arab or Muslim peoples and regimes should have dealings with them,” the Egyptian president went on to state. “Pressure should be exerted upon them. They must not be given any opportunity, and must not stand on any Arab or Islamic land. They must be driven out of our countries.”

So how does Qaradawi’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood relate to Al Jazeera and now by default, Current TV? According to David Reaboi, vice president for strategic communications at the Center for Security Policy, both network’s programing have shown some rather specific parallels concerning the Muslim Brotherhood from as early as the onset of the Arab Spring. In a statement to TheBlaze, Reaboi, noted that both Current and Al Jazeera, “presented the Muslim Brotherhood’s takeover in Egypt as a democratic revolution.”

“Both networks pushed provably false narratives about the future of Egypt’s ‘democracy,’ it’s ideological makeup, and demonized those that correctly assessed the situation,” he continued.

“Qaradawi’s role in mobilizing public and nation-state support for the Islamic ascendancy, from Tunisia through Egypt, Libya, Syria and beyond, cannot be overstated. When Qaradawi declared Gadhafi and Assad ‘unIslamic,’ it was not just his estimated 60 million viewers that got the message.”

Reaboi added that Qaradawi’s fatwa indeed helped inform the Obama administration in its calculation about views from the “Arab Street” on such issues. Thus, the imam’s influence is indeed far-reaching and has the power to effect change in a negative way.

Has Northeastern University Done Its Homework on Islamic Extremism?

by Charles Jacobs

Back in March, Northeastern  University’s president, Joseph E. Aoun, was  appointed to an academic board that advises the Department of Homeland Security  on how American universities can contribute to antiterrorism efforts. Aoun told  The Boston Globe: “We need more research and training related to security.”  Ironically, Aoun’s own Northeastern campus may be an appropriate place for him  to start.

Perhaps we can help: Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) will soon  release a 10-minute video documenting Islamic radicalism at Northeastern. Based  on several months of research, the video will describe a culture of extremism  residing at Northeastern’s officially sanctioned and financially supported  Muslim student group, the Islamic Society of Northeastern University (ISNU).

The campus group has received thousands of dollars in funding from Boston’s  Roxbury mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society (MAS), a group federal  authorities describe as an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The ISNU is headed by  the university’s Muslim chaplain, Abdullah Faaruuq, who is closely associated  with the Roxbury mosque.

Two Muslim students who attended Northeastern and who had ties to the Roxbury  mosque have been charged with terror plots. Two other convicted terrorists from  Boston are being actively supported by Faaruuq and Northeastern’s Muslim  students.

*Rezwan Ferdaus, a 2008 Northeastern University physics grad who frequented  the Roxbury mosque, described himself to undercover FBI agents as a fan of Al  Qaeda and was arrested in 2011 for a plot to attack the Capitol building and the  Pentagon.

*Tarek Mehanna, who was convicted and sent to prison for 17 1/2 years for  providing material support to Al Qaeda and conspiring to kill Americans. At the  time of his arrest in 2009, the FBI alleged that he and others plotted to attack  a mall in North Attleboro in an automatic assault rifle rampage similar to the  Mumbai attacks in India. Before his arrest, he would frequently give classes on  Islam at Northeastern for ISNU’s evening “Deen and Dine” programs.

*Ahmad Abusamra, another Northeastern graduate and son of the Roxbury  mosque’s former vice president, was indicted together with Mehanna and is now a  fugitive in Syria.

*Aafia Siddiqui – an MIT student who prayed at Imam Faaruuq’s mosque near the  Northeastern campus and became his friend – had been the most wanted woman on  FBI’s list of Al Qaeda terrorists and was caught with plans for a chemical  attack on New York City. She was sentenced in 2010 to 86 years for attempted  murder of FBI agents in Afghanistan.

Faaruuq has been publicly campaigning on behalf of Siddiqui and Mehanna. The  chaplain praised Siddiqui for trying to shoot FBI agents in Afghanistan, telling  worshippers at a mosque in Worcester in 2011: “They say that she took up a  machine gun while they held her captive in the other room… What a brave woman  she is. What a brave woman she continues to be, and how much her bravery and her  faith and her belief, warrant our support at this time.”

Rewind 2010: Top US Islamic cleric says Jews make matzos from blood of Christian children

By Patrick Poole:

One of the lead articles linked on the Drudge Report today is a story by Adam Kredo at the Washington Free Beacon on a recent statement by top Saudi cleric Salman al-Odeh declaring the Holocaust was “exaggerated” and that Jews make their Passover matzos with the blood of Christian children:

But before we begin wagging our fingers at such outrageous stone-age beliefs it bears worth mentioning that the same blood libel views have been preached by top US Islamic clerics as well.

For example, take this appearance by Fiqh Council of North American member Salah Sultan in March 2010 saying the exact same thing:

Oh, did I mention that Dr. Sultan is my former neighbor, and that this signatory to the Fiqh Council’s 2005 “anti-terrorism” fatwa has recently appeared with several designated terrorists?

Egyptian Actors Pranked on Candid Camera Turn Violent When Told TV Channel Is Israeli

Two grew violent, with one burly male even assaulting the young female interviewer. The prank speaks volumes not only about the level of hatred for Jews and Israelis in Egyptian popular culture but about what is considered acceptable behavior in the Muslim world.

Viewing the invective about Jews and Israel being spewed on the show by three apparently prominent members of the Egyptian arts community is damning by itself. It says a lot that the show’s producers thought one of the most outrageous things they could do to Egyptians was to trick them into sitting down with Jews. Nor is it surprising that the response generated hate speech about the character of the Jewish people and the authenticity of the Holocaust….

…Nevertheless, the show tells us all we need to know about the depth of Egyptian and Muslim anti-Semitism. Those who believe peace with the Arab world can be bought by territory or by Israeli concessions continue to ignore the current of hatred that runs through the political and arts culture of the Muslim world, even in a country supposedly at peace with the Jewish state.

“Never Again” or “Again and Again”?

by Victor Sharpe:

After the world’s descent into the 20th century abyss of  staggering crimes against humanity consisting of two world wars, the Holocaust,  scores of regional wars, massacres, pogroms, mass starvation, genocides in  Ruanda, Nigeria, Cambodia and the Sudan, we now are into the beginning of the  second decade of the 21st century and are faced again and again with  man’s inhumanity towards his fellow man.

When, after the end of World War Two, the extent of Nazi Germany’s systematic  extermination of the Jews of Europe became horribly apparent, there arose the  cry of: “Never Again.”

It was assumed that a horror of such magnitude, perpetrated by millions of  obedient and willing executioners using all the tools of perverted science, must  never again occur in the world. But the cataclysmic lesson of that genocide has  been shamefully ignored.

Yes, after the war an organization was set up called the United Nations – a  body primarily at first consisting of democracies along with a few autocratic  regimes, which nevertheless were rational. And as delegates entered the UN  building they passed by  the wall on which were written the biblical words  of the Jewish prophet, Isaiah:

“They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning  hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they learn war  anymore.” – Isaiah 2:4.

But now the UN has become a cesspool of competing blocs of nations that are  not always concerned about justice but more interested in pushing narrow and  hostile agendas and few, if any, delegates bother to read that inscription on  the wall of the United Nations. Instead the world body has become a veritable  Temple of Hypocrisy.

And so much of humanity is becoming more and more inured to the present day  horrors that increasingly proliferate around the globe and whose ghastly images  are daily flashed on our television screens.

Civilians are routinely butchered, and genocide in South Sudan continues as  it does in Somalia and, in particular, throughout the ever violent Middle East.  As I write, butchery on a grand scale is taking place throughout Syria, governed  as it is by Bashar Assad; a scion of the minority Alawite tribe.

According to Ammar Abdulhamid, a member of the Free Syrian Army, which is one  of the rebel groups battling the regime, Bashar Assad’s strategy is to create a  de facto partition of Syria. This is, he says, taking place with the ethnic  cleansing of factions and populations deemed hostile to the regime.

Syria may degenerate into dozens of fiefdoms, each one at its neighbor’s  throat, or an Alawite state will emerge along Syria’s coastline, incorporating  other areas of the country. This state, if it emerged, would incorporate the  strategic city of Homs, which straddles all the main Syrian highways and  communication routes.

Of immense concern are Assad’s warehouses in which are stored Syria’s weapons  of mass destruction consisting of thousands of missiles tipped with Sarin and  Mustard gas and God knows what other hellish ingredients.

In the present internecine conflict that is tearing Syria apart, these stored  missiles – some already in silos – may well fall into the hands of a host of  Islamic terrorist groups fighting inside the country. If they do, a Pandora’s  Box will open and the entire world will lurch yet further into a nightmare  scenario.

And behind the ethnic cleansing, the massacres and the butchery of thousands  of civilians, lies the dread hand of Iran, with its fanatical Mullahocracy and  its evil clown president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, ever spinning their web of terror  and fear.

Since 1979, when Americans during the failed Carter presidency were taken  hostage at our embassy in Teheran, Iran has been involved in anti-American  activities including complicity in the 9/11 atrocities.

Iran has produced the infamous IEDs provided to Iraqi insurgents that have  killed hundreds of U.S. troops and the Iranian regime has directly supported  terrorism throughout the Middle East and beyond. The United States has ample  cause to target the mullahs.

The Nazis of Palestine

by Wild Bill for America:

The Palestinians of Israel are following the goals of Nazism by calling for a new holocaust against the Jewish people.

 

Nazi propaganda website starts operation in Iran, government censors do nothing

By : A pro-Nazi association now operates a Persian-language website in Iran,  promoting anti-Semitism and memorializing Adolf Hitler, apparently with the  approval of the Iranian government and its censors.

The site, Nazicenter.ir, features videos of Nazi leaders and pictures  of Hitler, and praises the Third Reich for nearly conquering the Western world.  It also includes a public forum whose members routinely discuss their hatred of  the Jewish people.

The site’s primary goal, its administrators write, is to confront the “story  of the Holocaust, which without a doubt has been taken advantage of in  contemporary history.”

Iran’s Islamic regime strictly regulates all forms of communication. Hundreds  of websites have been banned, and Iranians’ online access to the free world is  severely restricted. But a Nazi propaganda website is consistent with the  proclamations of Iran’s military and political leaders, who have both denied the  existence of the Nazi Holocaust and called for the destruction of Israel.

The chief commander of the Iranian armed forces, Maj. Gen. Hassan  Firouzabadi, announced the doctrine of the Islamic regime in a recent  speech. “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause,” he said, “and that  is the full annihilation of Israel.”

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has openly called Israel a “cancerous tumor” that  should be cut out. And Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has repeatedly  denied the Holocaust occurred.

Nazicenter.ir is hosted on a Web server in Germany and administered by two individuals who also own the Internet domain “NaziClub.ir.”

The website, according to Google’s “FeedBurner” syndication service, has more  than 1,200 subscribers. Its online forums serve nearly 1,700 members, including  some with online avatars named “Klaus.barbie,” “NEW Heil” and “Heinrich_Himmler.”

A published set of ground rules prominently displayed for forum  participants includes the warning that “All members must respect the current  laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” The also include requirements that  members should promote “the expansion of Iran’s nationalism” and “make known the  true picture of Zionism.”

“We as an Internet media outlet consider it a duty to show the ugly and  oppressive face of Zionism,” the text continues, “which rules the world’s media  who have hidden its true face.”

While Nazicenter.ir includes historical reports about Hitler’s messages to  troops and the Nazi military’s operations during World War II, it also features  an article about “the issue of race and ability, and IQ differences between  different races.”

On April 20 the site offered “congratulations” to its readers “with Aryan  blood” on the anniversary of Adolf Hitler’s birth. On May 9 an unnamed author republished video of a 1938 speech in which  Hitler warned about the dangers Allied powers posed to “occupied Palestine.”

“If you think that the German leader was thinking of rescuing Germany alone  from such exploitation, then you are wrong,” the writer insists. “Adolf Hitler  in his 12 years of governance criticized the Western powers in defense of the  oppressed — one of them being the Palestinians.”
