This brief Fjordman essay focusing on Islamic terrorism in Spain then expanding his understanding to all the European Union (EU) is something concerned Americans should understand the implications that are applicable to the USA thanks to eight years of Obama/Dem immigration policies.

How Barcelona Became a Victim of the Barcelona Process

  • The Barcelona Process, promoted by the EU, has helped to facilitate a greater presence of Islam and Muslim immigrants in Western Europe -- thereby also increasing the Islamic terror threat there. That result was perfectly foreseeable.

 

  • When the number of people who believe in Islamic Jihad doctrines rises, the likelihood of experiencing jihadist attacks increases as well.

 

  • It is unlikely, though, that European political leaders will point to this connection. Doing so would be an indirect admission that Europe's leaders have actively increased the Islamic terror threat against European citizens. This is the brutal truth they do not want exposed.

 

The murders on the pedestrian street of La Rambla in Barcelona on August 17, 2017 were not the first Islamic terrorist attack in Spain. On March 11, 2004, 192 people were killed, and around two thousand injured, in the Madrid train bombings.

 

In hindsight, that attack marked a new phase in the modern Islamic Jihad against Europe. After the Madrid bombings, London was hit with deadly bombings on July 7, 2005. In recent years, the frequency of jihadist attacks on European soil has increased dramatically.

 

It is probably not a coincidence that Spain was an early target of Islamic terror. The Iberian Peninsula, present-day Portugal and Spain, was for centuries under Islamic rule. Militant Muslims have repeatedly made it clear that for them, reconquering Spain is a priority.

Ironically, some people in Barcelona seem to view tourists who pay for short-term visits as a greater threat than Muslim immigrants who come to stay permanently. One can hear similar reactions among some radical left-wing activists, for instance, in Greece.

 

Mass tourism can potentially cause problems such as overcrowding and local pollution. Nevertheless, it is noteworthy that only a few days before the terror attack in Barcelona, some locals were complaining about an invasion of tourists. One radical left-wing group, Arran, published footage of tourist bikes in the city having their tires punctured in acts of deliberate sabotage. Of course, the problem might be even greater if there were too few tourists.

 

Meanwhile, a real invasion of Spain and Europe is taking place. For years, huge numbers of illegal immigrants from the Islamic world and Africa have been entering, especially through Greece or Italy. Spain, too, has seen a spike in the number of illegal immigrants. The Spanish-controlled enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in North Africa are under increasing pressure as points of departure for migrants.

 

The Madrid bombings in 2004 were immediately followed by the election in Spain of the Socialist politician José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. His policy of appeasement of Islam and the Islamic world was, sadly, not the first. Western Europe's appeasement of Islam stretches back at least to the 1970s.

 

With the 1973 oil embargo, Arab countries in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) used oil as a weapon and tool for blackmail. European countries started giving concessions to Arabs to ensure their oil supply and, they doubtless hoped, avoid terrorism. These concessions were not just limited to economic affairs. They also included opening Western Europe up to Islamic culture and Muslim immigration. The author Bat Ye'or has written extensively on this subject.

 

As part of the Euro-Arab Dialogue, a Euro-Mediterranean Partnership between the EU and the Arabic-Islamic world was launched in 1995 with the so-called Barcelona Process. Its purpose was to strengthen the ties between Europe and the Arab world in the fields of trade, economy, environment, energy, health, migration, education, social affairs and cultural cooperation.

 

This Process has been in force for decades. Despite it, the increasingly stronger ties between the EU and Arab Muslim countries rarely receive critical scrutiny from the European mass media. There is even a Union for the Mediterranean, which most Europeans have never heard of.

 

As the official website of the European External Action Service (EEAS), the diplomatic service of the European Union (EU), stated in October 2017:

 

"The Union for the Mediterranean promotes economic integration across 15 neighbours to the EU's south in North Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans region. Formerly known as the Barcelona Process, cooperation was re-launched in 2008 as the Union for the Mediterranean.... Projects address areas such as economy, environment, energy, health, migration, education and social affairs. Along with the 28 EU member states, 15 Southern Mediterranean countries are members of the UfM: Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Monaco, Montenegro, Morocco, Palestine, Syria (suspended), Tunisia and Turkey. Libya is an observer."

 

The Islamic Republic of Mauritania in western Africa, a full member of the Union for the Mediterranean, has the same formal status there as Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France, Italy and Poland. Although Mauritania was the last country officially to ban slavery, it is still widely practiced there to this day. Yet the country regularly cooperates with the EU on matters of importance to the future of the EU.

 

The Barcelona Process, promoted by the EU, has helped to facilitate a greater presence of Islam and Muslim immigrants in Western Europe -- thereby also increasing the Islamic terror threat there. That result was perfectly foreseeable. When the number of people who believe in Islamic Jihad doctrines rises, the likelihood of experiencing Jihadist attacks increases as well.

 

It is unlikely, though, that European political leaders will point to this connection. Doing so would be an indirect admission that Europe's leaders have actively increased the Islamic terror threat against European citizens. This is the brutal truth they do not want exposed.

The G+ person going by the name “THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH !!!” posts  often to my G+ Community Anti-islamic Brotherhood. Unfortunately TAT!!! Goes beyond posting info exposing Islam. Those posts not dealing with Islam on that community I often delete; nonetheless, TAT!!!’s posts are often spot on even when they don’t deal with Islam. TAT!!! Found a video of Ben Shapiro giving facts showing the nefarious Barack Hussein Obama is a crook. That video was posted by the Youtube channel To Tell The Truth. The similarities between the G+ The Absolute Truth !!! and the Youtube channel To Tell The Truth might be a coincidence or the same person, frankly I don’t know.

 

At any rate the legacy of Obama criminality will probably affect America for some time even past the Trump Administration. The reason being is the Leftist elites are too powerfully entrenched in our government protecting Leftist crooks like Obama and Hillary Clinton and their comrade acolytes.

 

So, go get’em Ben Shapiro! Obama is evil and even out of Office is perpetuating evil against America & Israel!

Battle of Lepanto 1571

 

In an email alert today (10/13/17), Bill Warner – prior to introducing a new expose Islam video (What I Admire about Islam) – writes about how the Polish collective stood against EU Multiculturalism with a massive rosary prayer pertaining resisting more Muslim migrants by highlighting the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. Lepanto is one of those historic battles against Ottoman Turkish invasions that helped preserve Western culture from the brutality of Islamic conquest.

 

The National Review on October 7 – the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto – gives a brief history lesson on how brutal Muslim imperialists made numerous attempts to subjugate the last bastion of Christianity that looks at momentous Islamic setbacks such as Charles Martel repulsing a then considered superior Muslim force at the Battle of Tours/Poitiers in 732 AD, then some Muslim vicious victories, another spectacular Christian victory at the Battle of Vienna in 1683 under the leadership of Polish King Jan (John) III Sobieski and then adding more detail to the battle of Lepanto in 1571.

 

Between victories at Vienna and Lepanto, Muslim military began to wane and recede back Muslim entrenched populations already brutally converted to Islam.

 

I admire Polish resistance in this present time to defy European Union Multiculturalism and prevent further Muslim twisting of Western/Christian culture.

 

Below is the Bill Warner intro on Polish activism that has a link to a Gateway Pundit report on Polish resistance to Leftist Multiculturalism and Islamic cultural infusion.

Battles Have Consequences

 

By Bill Warner

Excerpt Political Islam Alert

 

There comes a time in life when a person must stand for something or stand for nothing.  The Polish people know what Islamic migration would do to their country, and this acknowledgement was the driver for their standing up and praying en mass in commemoration of the Battle of Lepanto. In this naval battle of 1571, the outnumbered Europeans fought and won against the Muslim Ottoman Turks. Their show of spirit and deep devotion to their religious beliefs and the ideals of Western Civilization is to be commended. I hope they continue to stay strong in their stance.
 

If only Americans knew their own country’s history and would commemorate defeating the Muslim Barbary States pirates who took the jizya from ships sailing the Mediterranean in the early 19th century, I would be a happy man.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS Gather To Pray Rosary Along Poland’s Borders For Defense Against Secularism, Islam

 

Polish PM, Beata Szydło Tweets Support For Event Marking Feast of Our Lady of The Rosary, Commemorating Historic Victory That Saved Europe from Ottoman Turks in 1571

 

By Damien Cowley

October 9, 2017

Gateway Pundit

 

Hundreds of thousands of Poles took part in a massive prayer vigil Saturday, forming a human chain which spanned the length of the nation’s 2,200-mile border – through forested wilderness and snowy mountain crossings, along river banks and coastal beaches. Fishing trawlers and sailing boats joined the event on open water whilst airport chapels were said to be overflowing.

 

The ‘Różaniec do grana’’, or ‘’Rosary to the Borders’’ event was deliberately planned to coincide with the liturgical feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7th), which commemorates the landmark 1571 Battle of Lepanto in which outnumbered European forces under Pope Pius V won a decisive naval battle against the Ottoman Turks. The victory, credited with saving Europe from Islamic expansion, was attributed to the praying of the rosary by beleaguered Christian forces.

 

Impressive crowds gathered for Mass Saturday morning, followed by processions to 4,000 border locations, each selected to be several hundred yards from the next so as to encircle the entire Polish territory in a ‘’chain of prayer.’’

 

In Catholic tradition, the rosary has long since been considered a spiritual weapon against evil, and a means of conversion to Christ by way of his mother, Mary.

 

Social media accounts were soon flooded with images of the unusual event, which organizers hope will have mobilized at least one million of Poland’s predominantly Catholic population of 38 million.

 

Archbishop of Krakow, Marek Jedraszewski asked participants to pray “for other European nations to make them understand the necessity of returning to their Christian roots in order that Europe remains Europe.”

 

Polish Prime Minister, Beata Szydło, a devout Catholic and mother of a recently ordained priest, tweeted an image of her own rosary beads and a greeting in support of those taking part.

 

Beata Szydło tweet the Rosary

 

In certain cases, Polish citizens were joined in prayer by participants across the border; Poland has land borders with Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Ukraine, Belarus and Russia (Kaliningrad).

 

The popularity of the event reflects the level of Christian faith still found in Poland along with a general sense of foreboding over what many Poles see as an attack on their values coming from a European Union accelerating into chaos.

 

“Poland is in danger. We need to shield our families, our homes, our country from all kinds of threats, including the de-Christianization of our society, which the EU’s liberals want to impose on us,” one participant explained to the AFP, adding that Islam was again becoming a threat as in centuries past.

 

Organized by a group of lay Catholics, Solo Dios Basta (God Alone Is Enough), the project was the idea of young documentary film-maker, Maciej Bodasiński, and enjoyed the support of numerous actors, sports stars and media personalities.

Political Islam About Page

 

What is Islam?

 

Islam is a cultural, religious [sic] and political system. Only the political system is of interest to kafirs (non-Muslims) since it determines how we are defined and treated. The Islamic political system is contained in the Koran, the Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed) and his biography, the Sira.

 

Our Mission

 

Political Islam has subjugated other civilizations for 1400 years. Our mission is to educate the world about political Islam, its founder Mohammed, his political doctrine and his god, Allah.

 

The Five Principles

 

Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam.

 

All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—Koran, Sira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions).


Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology.

 

Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs.

 

Political Islam always has two different ways to treat kafirs—dualistic ethics. Kafirs can be  READ THE REST

Jihadwatchdog1 is a fellow “owner” of the G+ community Movement of Anti Pisslam! (There are several listed owners and I have no idea how I joined that list) JWDog1 found a Youtube video of an Italian gal a bit upset about Italy taking in volumes of illegal Muslim immigrants.

 

The video is subtitled in English and lasts 2-minutes and 46-seconds. What I enjoyed most though was JWDog1’s description of Giorgia Meloni venting anger over the immigration situation surging into Italian culture.

 

 

Here’s Wikipedia’s scoop on Giorgia Meloni:

 

Giorgia Meloni (born 15 January 1977) is an Italian politician and journalist, president of Brothers of Italy.

 

Giorgia Meloni was Minister of Youth in the IV Berlusconi government and president of Young Italy, the youth section of The People of Freedom.

 

She is co-founder of the party Brothers of Italy ("Fratelli d'Italia") with Guido Crosetto and Ignazio La Russa, and on March 8, 2014, she was elected president of the party.

She has been a member of the Chamber of Deputies of Italy since 2006.[1]

 

 

Biography

 

First years

 

Meloni was born in Rome, to a father from Sardinia and a mother from Sicily.[2]

 

Being active into politics since her teenage years, she earned a diploma from the former Amerigo Vespucci Institute in 1996.[3]

 

In 1992, when she was 15, she started her political commitment in "Fronte della Gioventù", the youth 

 

Deputy Vice President of Chamber of Deputies and Minister of Youth Policy

 

In 2006, she became the youngest ever deputy vice president of the Italian Chamber of Deputies and she started to work as journalist.[4]

 

In 2009, her party merged with Forza Italia into The People of Freedom and she took over the presidency of the united party's youth section, called Young Italy.[5]

 

In 2008, she was appointed as Minister of Youth Policy in

 

Foundation of Brothers of Italy

 

In December 2012, both MPs left the party to become founding member of a new political movement named "Fratelli d'Italia" (Brothers of Italy), a name borrowed from the words of the Italian National Anthem. At the Italian general election, 2013, her party gets 2.0% and 9 seats.

 

In March 2014 she won the primary election of her party and became President.

 

She was candidate for mayor of Rome in 2016, but she lost. She and her party were for "No" to the constitutional Italian referendum, 2016. (Giorgia Meloni; Wikipedia; page was last edited on 24 July 2017 20:24)

HELL HATH NO FURY

HELL HATH NO FURY like an Italian woman sick to death of seeing her country ripped apart by the never-ending Muslim migrant invasion.


Giorgia Meloni, leader of the anti-immigration party, Fratelli d’Italia, said that boats filled with Muslim illegals departing from Libya “should be stopped before they leave,” while boats with human traffickers on board “should be sunk.” She rails against the Left, saying their agenda is ethnic replacement of Italians with third world Muslim freeloaders.

NY Times Giorgia Meloni, the head of the centre-Right Forza Italia party, said that boatloads of Muslim migrant departing from Libya “should be stopped before they leave,” while boats with smugglers on board “should be sunk.” “OUR identity should be defended first and foremost!” [Blog Editor: Meloni has departed from Forza Italia and now leads Brothers of Italy, Party President since 2014)

Ms. Meloni, a member of Parliament, wasted no time bringing up her party’s opposition to the government’s proposal to extend citizenship to children born in Italy. “We believe Italian citizenship cannot be a concession or automatic,” she said to applause. 

She had no problem with attacking the government’s welcoming approach to immigrants. “It devastates the culture, devastates tourism, devastates security, devastates everything,” she said. “Nothing good comes of it.

Italy has registered more than 70,000 mainly economic migrants and fake asylum seekers this year, 27% more than it did by this time in 2016, when a record 181,000 migrants arrived.

Actual fights have broken out in Parliament over the center-left government’s proposal to extend citizenship to the children of Muslim migrants born on Italian soil. All over, parties and politicians are shifting to a tougher stance on immigration.

One of its highest-profile politicians, Rome’s embattled mayor, Virginia Raggi, called for a moratorium on new immigrants. Champions of a more welcoming approach to immigrants have not fared well. - Via NBI

Noted Counterjihad activist Pamela Geller is not dismissing the Muslim convert motive behind Stephen Paddock’s mass murder terrorism. Geller is noted and yet also controversial. The American Left enjoys lying about Counterjihadists by calling them racists rather than people that expose the dark side of Islam. Geller on the other hand tips the Leftist hate scale off the meter.

 

In full disclosure, I find Geller a bit brusque. Nonetheless, she is passionate in pushing back the Leftist lies about Islamic acceptance as well as pushing back on the Left’s labelling Geller as a racist. The irony there is that Geller has a Jewish ancestry.

 

Here is Pamela Geller’s reasoning behind Paddock being an Islamic terrorist complete with photos of other elderly converts to Islam to prove her point to not completely dismiss the possibility.

Contrary to FBI Hooey, Steven Paddock Fits the Profile of a Convert

 

By Pamela Geller

October 9, 2017

Geller Report

 

The idea floated by “intel” agencies that Steven Paddock didn’t fit the profile of a Muslim convert is absurd on its face, and further proof that the keystone clowns and their “profilers” at the FBI haven’t a clue. How can they profile what they refuse to acknowledge, learn about or recognize?

 

The fact is the FBI has nothing. Over a week after the monstrous slaughter, they have nothing and yet they have dismissed ISIS claims out of hand, despite the fact ISIS does not take credit for attacks that are not theirs. Not only did they take credit, they did something they never did before – they doubled and tripled down. The Islamic State (IS) featured an infographic on the Las Vegas attack in the 100th issue of its al-Naba weekly newspaper, and indicated that the shooter, “Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki,” had converted to Islam six months ago.

 

Jihad is the only motive that makes any sense. And the fact that the FBI has nothing else points to that. That Steven Paddock left no digital trail might very well be deliberate – to show how incompetent our law enforcement agencies are. ISIS took credit for the downing of the Russian jetliner in the Sinai. Everyone in law enforcement dismissed that too. Until ISIS provided proof a couple of weeks later, that is. I suspect we may see the same thing happen here. The Vegas attack mirrors the sophisticated planning and secrecy consistent with more complex ISIS plots like Sinai explosion of Russian airliner.

 

We have been told that because Paddock was white and 64, it is unlikely that he would be a convert to Islam. Why? Islam is ideological – it’s not a race or an age. It’s a belief system. It’s also being said that if Paddock was a convert, Homeland Security is going to have to change their whole approach to jihad terror in the Homeland. We can only hope. Because this war has nothing to do with age, race or gender – it’s religious. And profiling is required. On the top of my watch list would be converts. Who would be attracted to an ideology that is the cause of hatred, misogyny, subjugation and slaughter?

 

What ISIS has to Lose if it’s Lying about Las Vegas

 

He was a happy-go-lucky guy who drank and gambled until he stopped.

 

He made multiple trips to the Middle East.

 

Sophisticated planning and secrecy consistent with more complex ISIS plots like Sinai explosion of Russian airliner.

President Trump’s 70-Point plan on immigration reform pretty much hits the head of the nail on accomplishing his campaign promise. He even offers a compromise bone on DACA to the Leftist Dems if they go along with funding The Wall and strengthening border security. But let’s be clear! The only way this plan doesn’t get through Congress is will be due to RINO members joining the Dem hysterical lies.

Trump’s New 70-Point Immigration Plan Is Bad News For DACA, Sanctuary Cities And Violent Gang Members

"...restore the rule of law to our immigration system, prioritize America’s safety and security, and end the lawlessness."

 

By Jack Davis

October 9, 2017 at 7:27am

Western Journalism

 

President Donald Trump unveiled a vast overhaul of America’s immigration policies Sunday night.

 

The package would require that in exchange for any legislation to allow children of illegal immigrants to remain in the United States, Congress must approve funding a wall along the southern border, approve curbs on federal grants to sanctuary cities and fix the leaky border to stop potential gang members from crossing into the U.S.

 

Trump’s package of proposals would also give federal agents more ability to stop illegal immigrants at the border, detain them if they slip into the country and deport them faster.

 

“These findings outline reforms that must be included as part of any legislation addressing the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients,” Trump wrote in a letter to Congress. “Without these reforms, illegal immigration and chain migration, which severely and unfairly burden American workers and taxpayers, will continue without end.”

 

The proposals received support of many lawmakers and officials.

 

“President Trump has put forth a series of proposals that will restore the rule of law to our immigration system, prioritize America’s safety and security, and end the lawlessness. These are reasonable proposals that will build on the early success of President Trump’s leadership. This plan will work. If followed it will produce an immigration system with integrity and one in which we can take pride. Perhaps the best result will be that unlawful attempts to enter will continue their dramatic decline,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.

 

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., praised the administration for “a serious proposal” and said that “we cannot fix the DACA problem without fixing all of the issues that led to the underlying problem of illegal immigration in the first place.”

 

When Trump announced that he wanted to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allowed children of illegal immigrants to remain in the United States, he said he was open to a deal with Congress to allow the estimated 800,000 DACA participants to remain.

 

“Anything that is done addressing the status of DACA recipients needs to include these three reforms and solve these three problems,” a senior White House official told The Washington Times. “If you don’t solve these problems then you’re not going to have a secure border, you’re not going to have a lawful immigration system and you’re not going to be able to protect American workers.”

 

“We would expect Congress to include all the reforms in any package that addresses the status of the DACA recipients,” one White House aide said on the conference call with reporters. “Other views had their fair day in the democratic process.”

 

But Democrats were outraged and accused Trump of racism.

 

“The administration can’t be serious about compromise or helping the Dreamers if they begin with a list that is anathema to the Dreamers, to the immigrant community and to the vast majority of Americans,” Senate Minority Leader Church Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a joint statement Sunday evening, according to The Washington Post. “We told the President at our meeting that we were open to reasonable border security measures but this list goes so far beyond what is reasonable. This proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise.”

 

Others were not so restrained in their opinions of Trump.

 

“Congress should reject this warped, anti-immigrant policy wish list. The White House wants to use dreamers as bargaining chips to achieve the administration’s deportation and detention goals,” said Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.), vice chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus

 

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., called the package of reforms “an extension of the white supremacist agenda.”

 

He said it is “fanciful thinking that you can sit down with a man who has based his presidential aspirations and has never wavered from his xenophobic positions. I never understood — I just never got it, how you go from Charlottesville and white supremacists to reaching an agreement with him.”

Someday law enforcement will reveal to the public either their best theory behind Stephen Paddock’s mass murder in Las Vegas, NV. So far, the only fact we really know is that Paddock was involved in a well-planned attack at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino killing 59 and wounding over 500.

 

Justin Smith looks at the infamous tragedy.

 

JRH 10/7/17

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

A Las Vegas War Zone 

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 10/7/2017 1:04 AM

 

America was struck speechless with horror, grief, rage and fury, when breaking news from Las Vegas, Nevada flashed images of good and decent young men and women being cut down in a hail of automatic weapons fire, at the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert on October 1st, by an incredibly well-armed, strategically positioned psychopathic assassin. A great evil had descended upon this field of nearly twenty-two thousand joyful and excited concert goers, striking the life from 59 and wounding 527 in a most terrible manner, and it left memories of devastation and unimaginable horror with all, who witnessed this heinous act of terror.

 

The first shots of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history rang out at 10:05 PM, from an 1800 square feet luxury corner suite of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, where Stephen Paddock, a 64 year old multimillionaire gambler from Mesquite, Nevada, had stocked 23 semi-automatic weapons -- some AR15s and AR10s -- modified with bumpstocks to simulate automatic fire, at least one automatic weapon and thousands of rounds of ammunition, over several days. And Paddock was running amok.

 

At 10:08 PM, a police transmission relayed: "We got shots fired! It sounded like an automatic firearm."

 

One of the first casualties was Sonny Melton, 29, a registered nurse from Big Sandy, TN, who was also a surgical assistant for his wife, Heather, a surgeon. He died trying to shield her from the bullets, even as Heather tried to save him from bleeding out. In an emotional interview, Heather told NBC's Savannah Guthrie, "I lost half my heart."

 

As soon as everybody realized the rapid multiple pop-pop-pops they were hearing weren't fireworks, chaos ensued, as many dove for cover and many others sprang into action to help the wounded. One off duty emergency medical technician, Travis Phippen, crawled from victim to victim, according to the LA Times, and he plugged their wounds with cloth and saw the woman next to him get shot in the head. He also found his own father, John (age 56), mortally wounded.

 

Mikkena Parry, a young teenager, shed tears as she tried to speak to ABC's David Muir about the horror she and others experience that night. A bullet went through her arm and into her abdomen. Her boyfriend and two other teens carried her to the back of a pickup truck and rushed her to the hospital.

 

And there was Jonathan Smith, a thirty year old who reportedly saved up to 30 lives, taking a bullet to the neck.

 

The calls went out and off duty doctors and nurses rushed to Las Vegas hospitals, like University Medical Center and Sunrise Hospital, where they worked on the victims throughout hours of surgery. Dr. Jay Coates, a trauma and critical care surgeon at UMC, said, "They were coming in so fast ... with lung contusions, liver and spleen contusions ... It was like a war zone."

 

Audio from the concert reveals a fire rate impossible for even the most skilled shooters, with specialized triggers. During one 31 second span, Paddock fired a staggering 280 rounds.

 

Nearly ten minutes of continuous fire had passed by the time Jesus Campos, hotel security, reached Paddock's door and distracted him from his murderous mission, as Paddock shot through the door and hit him in the upper thigh. Over 200 more rounds followed Campos's retreat down the corridor; and with police converging on the room, Paddock took his own life. Campos's interdiction saved lives.

 

Police waited for reinforcements and SWAT from 10:40 to 11:20, when SWAT detonated an explosive device to breach the door. They found Paddock dead.

 

At 12:31 AM Monday, authorities finally announced they thought Paddock was the only attacker. Two hours and twenty-six minutes had passed, and the massacre was officially over.

 

A note has been reported to have been found in Paddock's room by authorities, according to numerous sources, like the Daily Wire. Perhaps once authorities decide it doesn't compromise their investigation, they will release its content. It may reveal a piece of the puzzle towards motive.

 

Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI hostage negotiator from the bureau's behavioral science unit, stated: " On the surface, Paddock didn't seem like a typical mass murderer. Paddock is much older than the typical shooter and was not known to be suffering from mental illness." 

Paddock has broken the mold as a 64 year old millionaire mass murderer. This is a different level of mass shooting and an outlier on every level.

 

Analyzing Paddock's computer, cellphone and other electronic devices, investigators have found no clear connection to extremist or activist groups or outward display of mental illness, according to the Associated Press. He was called a loner, unfriendly, distant, surly and quick to anger by many of his neighbors in several states where he owned homes.

 

And, the fact that Stephen's brother Eric says Stephen "wasn't a gun guy" doesn't hold any weight. They weren't close, and Stephen hadn't seen his other brother, Patrick, in 20 years.

 

Paddock owned over 40 guns and acquired some of them years ago, in Utah, Texas, Nevada and California. He had an Alaskan hunting license. He obviously learned to use them over time.

 

On October 4th, Clark County, Nevada Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said: "What we know is Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life much of which will never be fully understood." He also said it was only logical to "make the assumption" that Paddock had "some help at some point" in pulling off that Sunday's massacre.

 

One should investigate the possibility, that Paddock either had knowing accomplices or simply people he used without their knowledge in gathering items, like the ammonium nitrate, fifty pounds of tannerite explosive and 1600 rounds of ammo found in his car. However, he could have accomplished this on his own. He had plenty of time and millions of dollars on his side, and it would have been easy to move the ten suitcases, noted by the FBI, filled with guns and ammunition to his room, slowly, patiently and methodically, and without drawing any notice to himself.

 

Paddock's act of terror didn't require "military training", only a familiarization with his tools of terror. He was shooting down from the 32nd floor into clusters of people, who were less than 400 yards away, alternating between two different weapons position. He didn't have to be a good marksman or even really aim the rapid automatic fire, because from his vantage point, casualties were assured. Anyone, even a twelve year old boy, could do the same.

 

Where was Paddock's conscience or moral code, that should have stopped him from carrying out his act of pure evil?

 

Now, numerous false stories or stories not verified, substantiated or authenticated, like Reuters’ claim that Paddock converted to Islam, based on only one anonymous source, harm the investigation, tying up resources needed elsewhere. There are other claims that are more plausible, such as Paddock was a member of Antifa; another says he was a Trump hater, but both, to date, cannot be confirmed. The cacophony of white noise and misinformation is drowning out the truth.

 

In the midst of our raw pain and grief so fresh, America understands that a cold-blooded, calculating and evil monster slithered forth, on a beautiful Sunday night, intent on breaking the hearts and the human souls of fine and loving Americans, taking one loved one after another and making a deep cut through the heart of those, not quite saints, who live close to God. Rather than breaking us, he strengthened our resolve to find anyone who knew of his plans or helped him, and as our spirits surge, we work in our knowledge there will be an accounting and America will carry on singing God Bless America.

Thanks to Ali Hoppe on the G+ Community United We Stand One Nation Under God, I have found out that the U.S, Ambassador to Israel - David Friedman - is publicly taking the stand that U.S. Embassy will be moved from Tel Aviv to the Eternal Capital of the Land of Israel is just a matter of when.

 

 

Since the Ambassador supposed to represent the agenda of the U.S. government, it warms my heart that President Trump has not given up on this campaign promise that has actually been mandated by the U.S. Congress.

U.S. Amb. to Israel: Trump Will Absolutely Move Embassy to Jerusalem

'It's not if, but when'

U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said the Trump administration will move the American embassy in the country to Jerusalem, saying it is not a matter of "if, but when," according to remarks offered in a new interview.

 

President Donald Trump promised early on in his campaign for office that he would finally move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which Israel considers its capital.

 

The issue has been shrouded in controversy since it is longstanding U.S. policy not to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital so as not to prejudge the outcome of peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

 

Trump has promised to move the embassy as one of his first declarations in office, but that was derailed following opposition by the State Department and a renewed push to get the Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table.

 

While Trump administration officials have said the embassy move is still being reviewed, Friedman told Erick Stakelbeck, director of Christians United for Israel's Watchman Project, in an exclusive interview that the U.S. embassy is certain to be relocated during Trump's tenure in office.

 

"The embassy will move. It's not if, but when," Friedman told Stakelbeck in an interview set to be broadcast on the TBN network. "I am convinced that during his term, the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the undivided and eternal capital of Israel."

Yup, I’m a Christian Zionist. As such I grow weary of all the hate-propaganda spewed against Israel and Jews. It’s high time you get a glimpse of the great things that are in Israel that seems overlapped by the hate-Israel crowd.

 

Ari Bussel takes us on a tour trip of Israel that should make Christians and Jews yearn to visit the Holy Land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (and not the land of Ishmael or religion-hating Marxists). Since I am more Gentile than Zionist, I added some links that brought me up to date on understanding. Enjoy the read.

 

Ari included a huge amount of photos in this submission of which I will post some (sorry -  not all) at the end of the tour of Israel.

Around the World without ever leaving Zion Jerusalem

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent October 4, 2017 11:07 PM

 

Dear Friends,

 

Every time a foreign journalist arrives Israel, he or she ascends to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, to get the official Press ID Card.

 

For an entire decade, upon my arrival to Israel, I would do exactly that.  I never wandered a bit farther than my destination.  I particularly avoided the shopping center next to the Government Press Office building, a clear “destination” for locals.

 

And yet, just around the hill (for Jerusalem is a City on the Hills), is a world unto its own, an oasis “hidden” in the valley, nestled among the hills.

 

There the world is gathered, and the Bible comes alive.

 

Much like in Noah’s time that the animals gathered in twos, entire species so they do not get extinct, so nowadays in the Holy City of Jerusalem.

 

And so it is told in Genesis 7:

 

 

יג  בְּעֶצֶם הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה בָּא נֹחַ, וְשֵׁם-וְחָם וָיֶפֶת בְּנֵי-נֹחַ; וְאֵשֶׁת נֹחַ, וּשְׁלֹשֶׁת נְשֵׁי-בָנָיו אִתָּם--אֶל-הַתֵּבָה.

13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

יד  הֵמָּה וְכָל-הַחַיָּה לְמִינָהּ, וְכָל-הַבְּהֵמָה לְמִינָהּ, וְכָל-הָרֶמֶשׂ הָרֹמֵשׂ עַל-הָאָרֶץ, לְמִינֵהוּ; וְכָל-הָעוֹף לְמִינֵהוּ, כֹּל צִפּוֹר כָּל-כָּנָף.

14 they, and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird of every sort.

טו  וַיָּבֹאוּ אֶל-נֹחַ, אֶל-הַתֵּבָה, שְׁנַיִם שְׁנַיִם מִכָּל-הַבָּשָׂר, אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ רוּחַ חַיִּים.

15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh wherein is the breath of life.

טז  וְהַבָּאִים, זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה מִכָּל-בָּשָׂר בָּאוּ, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה אֹתוֹ, אֱלֹהִים; וַיִּסְגֹּר יְהוָה, בַּעֲדוֹ.

16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.

 

Visitors to Israel

 

The best kept secret of the State of Israel is likely not its nuclear arsenal, as this is always reported by “foreign sources.”  Nor is it the ingenuity, creativity and innovation of the Jewish mind, for Israel has long been known as “Startup Nation.”  There are other well-kept-secrets, but these are all publicly discussed and the global rumor mill around them works non-stop.

 

Christian pilgrims arrive in droves to Israel to Walk in the Footsteps of Jesus.

 

Jews arrive here to celebrate a Bar/Bat-Mitzva (reaching adulthood ceremony for boys/girls), to visit family and friends and to witness the miracle of their homeland.  The holiest place in Judaism is the Temple Mount and its visible Western Wall

 

Young Jews come here on Birthright-Taglit [Blog Editor: Apparently anti-Zionists (aka Leftists & Muslim Apologists) hate the concept of Birthright Taglit] visit for approximately ten days, to get to know their ancestral home and have fun during this process of discovery.

 

Europeans come here to bask in the sun.

 

Anarchists and other “human rights” activists come here to demonstrate against the only true Democracy in the entire region, and they are not interested in trying to help the Syrians, Yazidis, Coptic Egyptians, Kurds, those who oppose the Mullahs in Iran and other persecuted and oppressed minorities throughout the Middle East and Africa.  Only against Israel they come to fight; nothing else angers or even concerns them.

 

There are many who come here to get medical treatment (“medical and dental tourism”) for it is relatively inexpensive.

 

And many academicians and professionals come here for conferences, on cyber security and water, agriculture and emergency medicine, investment opportunities and commerce.

 

Perceptions of Israel vs. Reality

 

Those who arrive and have never been to Israel often think of an ultra-orthodox country like Afghanistan, a military country like North Korea, a desert with camels as the main form of transportation or an Apartheid state like South Africa of yesteryears.  We often hear of a “Separation Wall” and other non-sense accusations, which add to one’s wrong perceptions of Israel.

 

Upon arrival, a miracle is discovered, evolving in front of one’s very eyes.  A modern country that breathes history.  People of all skin-colors.  People of various faiths.  Freedoms the likes of which one can find no where else in the world.  A skyline resembling (almost) that of New York or Hong Kong.  Construction springing upwards everywhere.  The most magnificent wonders of nature and a man-made oasis in a region otherwise known for suffering from little or no water, very harsh conditions and very few natural resources.

 

Modernity, art, culture, history, archeology, fun, sun and water, music, travel - all mix into one amazing experience, with honking (a form of speech / conversation in Israel), little patience, no respect to lines or generally to order or orderly behavior added to spice up the mix.  It is never boring in Israel; is it a country that kicks, breathes and acts 24/7.

 

Unlike many of the Arab countries that stretch over enormous portions of land with black gold underneath, where some of the most wondrous construction projects take place, Israel is different.  

 

Here one finds creativity and innovation, where almost every kid and every senior and everyone in-between is engaged in a startup of some sort.  And the “exits” one hears about went from hundreds of millions to $15b (the most recent).  The imagination is on fire, everyone dreams of the next big exit.

 

Beyond putting its fantastic minds to practical uses, Israel is the world being pregnant and having its children running and jumping up and down all around.  It is the most amazing picture to see and experience, for children here are safe, they are raised on the value of the sanctity of life and being a light unto the nations, of doing good, of not recognizing evil.  

 

Children here are color-blind.  They do not differentiate one from the other based on one’s skin color, ethnicity or cultural background.  After two thousand years of forced absence, Israelis laugh at the so-called “differences” indicating countries of origin (Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Poland, Hungary, ).  They are all one - indistinguishable family - Israelis!

 

And children here, out of necessity, all go into the military, where rich and poor alike are treated equally, these and other differences stripped away and just the person remaining, with traits and values (either already acquired or needed to be learned and implemented).  They learn to serve and protect, and they become productive members of society.

 

It is only here in Israel that bad and evil (constant terrorism attacks and the threat of annihilation) is turned into something else, that out of grief and sorrow new branches sprout with ever-growing intensity and strength of being.

 

It is the home of the Jewish people, the only country in the world that is truly theirs.  Here, in the Land of Israel.

 

Bird Migration

 

Every year, hundreds of millions of (estimates are at half a billion) birds migrate via Israel’s skies.  They do so twice a year, in the Fall to escape the cold in Europe and Asia as they migrate south to Africa, and then in the Spring, as they return northward to their countries of origin.

 

Many just fly overhead on their way.  Others stop for a rest and recharge.  Some will stay here several months, either during the winter or during the summer, they like the accommodations so much they actually come back! 

 

In short, Israel is the hub for bird migration, a phenomenon so unique in the world there is only one other place like it - Panama.  In Israel three continents meet, Asia, Europe and Africa, whereas in Panama the two Americas.

 

Flocks traveling together may number in the thousands or even tens of thousands (actually observed), and they add up to convoys numbering hundreds of thousands.

 

Several years ago, the Ministry of Tourism had invited foreign journalists stationed in Israel to view the migration of the cranes and the Hula Valley “Agamon” tourism park, a world-famous bird-watching site.

 

Israel is indeed famous for bird-watching and the twice-annual migration of birds, but yet, we are about to discover a secret only few know.

 

The Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem

 

So imagine my surprise when I discovered the members of the Tisch Family Zoological Gardens in Jerusalem.  I did not expect to meet male Asian elephants (a gift from Thailand), Asiatic lions, Syrian brown bears, red pandas, chimpanzees, entire types of monkeys, penguins, giraffes, zebras, hippopotamuses, parrots, birds of prey, deer and tigers, cheetahs, ostriches, Nile crocodile, and so many more animals.

 

One can see them in their natural “habitats.”  One can see them being fed, or just read the menu of what they eat each day.  One can take the trolley (warning:  no space, there are so many kids), or just walk around.  The hustle and bustle of the city around disappear, and one journeys to Africa or “Down Under,” to the Amazons or to the Sahara desert.  In fact, I realized that I can now “travel" to Africa and still continue to donate blood (it is otherwise prohibited, but not if one never leaves Israel!).

 

The place is so enormous yet manageable.  There is so much to see and experience, that one remains breathless.  As if the entire world has come here, to Noah’s Ark, to the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem, to say “Welcome!  Cherish Us!  Celebrate with Us!  Protect Us!”

 

Indeed, only in Zion Jerusalem.

 

So during your next trip, come see Lemur Land, Australian or South American Yard, the West Side Story Exhibit or the Bible Land Wildlife Preserve.  You will need a ticket (approximately $12), and you will not regret it.  Or, you may want to make a very special repeat, or a first ever, trip to Israel, just for this purpose!

 

Facts and Figures

 

The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo was originally established in 1940 by Zoology Prof. Aharon Shulov of the Hebrew University.  It has since moved several times until it opened in 1993 in its current location.

 

The Zoo is home to more than 2,500 mammals, birds, reptiles and fish belonging to some 250 species.

 

The animals at the zoo are native to the land of Israel that are mention in the Bible, many of which have become extinct in the wild, alongside species from all over the world, many of which are endangered.

 

The zoo is spread over 250 dunks (roughly 62 acres).  The route inside is about two kilometers (1.25 miles) long.  It is shaded, comfortable and wheelchair-accessible.  Benches and water fountains are aplenty.

 

The zoo is opened seven days a week (although the Zoo Train does not operate on Jewish holidays and Saturdays).

 

The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo is administered as a non-profit organization and works in partnership with many conservation groups.  It is a partner in global conservation efforts to save endangered species.

I am on the email list of ex-Muslim Maryam Namazie. She resides in the UK. I don’t often cross post info from Ms. Namazie because she not only an ex-Muslim, I get the impression she is anti-religion in general representing the values of Leftist Secular Humanism.

 

 

Her views on Islam are notable as to exposing the reality of Islamic theopolitical ideology. Since I believe and follow the values of Biblical Christianity. I am quite certain this would rub Ms. Namazie to a sense of unpleasantness toward me.

 

Nevertheless, this particular email alerts about the existence of International Blasphemy Day. That’s a big finger point to how Islam treats those who have disagreed with Sharia Law. If you violate Sharia particularly as to relating to their moon deity Allah, Muhammad or departing away from Islam; is a violation that labels you a blasphemer worthy of death.

 

Although the day was initiated over the insane Muslim response to cartooning Muhammad in Danish news periodicals such as Jyllands-Posten, the day has been managed by atheist Secular Humanists against all religions. This means Christians are as much a target for ridicule as Muslims. The major difference being Christians don’t go out on murderous rampages as a Muslim would offended over an ascertained blasphemy.

 

Here is a bit of a bio from Maryam Namazie’s webpage:

 

Maryam Namazie is a political activist, campaigner and blogger.

 

She is the Spokesperson for Fitnah - Movement for Women's Liberation, Equal Rights NowOne Law for All Campaign against Sharia Law in Britain and the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain. She hosts a weekly television programme in Persian and English called Bread and Roses broadcast in Iran and the Middle East via New Channel TV.

Except relating to Islam, Namazie is the kind of person that wants to transform the world into a Secular Humanist Marxist utopia. This translates into a despotic dictatorship where people are told how to live for the good of State principles and ideologies.

 

In the name of Multiculturalism, the global Left is brainwashing people into accepting Islam as an equal ideology in society because the Leftist elite are fully aware Islam will destroy the West’s heritage built upon the foundation of Greek, Roman, Judaism and Christian influences that has developed into a society of humanity which individual Liberty.

 

The Freedom that Liberty provides individuals drives both Islamic and Leftist ideologues nuts. Thus both ideologies are watching their backs due to their differences while advantage is being taken place Biblical Western Values.

 

The ideologues of the Left appear clueless of Islamic history and the 270 million people murdered since a guy named Muhammad synthesized religious ideologies to form a monotheistic death-cult that initially enriched Islamic prophet with personal wealth, sex slaves and brutal despotism to all those opposed to him.

 

To be honest the globe’s Marxist Left has done their share of murders in the name of forming a fake utopia. The Left’s heinous murders covered up from their populace knowing the revulsion it would cause. Islam could care less about a non-Muslim’s revulsion of the slaughter of people in the name of Allah/Muhammad.

 

It is my opinion Leftist-Marxists will lose to rabid Muslim culture of death because they brain wash devoted followers. Marxists are only capable of brainwashing a few disciples that will oppress the majority of humanity. The majority would eventually overthrow the despots as history has shown.

 

Unfortunately, the Muslim brainwashing tact turns the majority into the minority who become helpless servants of Islam. If you look at history, the Middle East and North Africa were Christians. After the Muslim conquest, oppression caused the majority to grow weary and transform to the darkside of theopolitical Islam for a better life for the sake of families. Islam actually became a viable choice.

 

Marxism has little interest – no matter what a Communist might tell you – to transform the hearts and minds into a global community. Rather Marxism relies on controlling society through promoting fear inside the community. Meaning no one really knows who is an authentic friend or foe.

 

As a simple matter of choice, the global Left should adopt an anti-Islam paradigm for the fear of Muslim rulers wiping the memory Marxism as they did to Christianity in the Middle East and North Africa.

VIDEO: Bodypainting in Solidarity with Ex-Muslims and CEMB

Created as a finale to the groundbreaking International Conference on Freedom of Conscience and Expression, the largest gathering of ex-Muslims in history, this is the world's first group bodypaint captured by both ground and drone. Conceived by award-winning bodypainter Victoria Gugenheim in support of and solidarity with ex-Muslims and the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain (CEMB).

SUPPORT BREAD AND READ THE REST

 

Some will ask why we must celebrate blasphemy when it is "hurtful" and "offends".

 

The answer is simple:

 

Because people can be killed for blaspheming and human life is more important than hurt sensibilities and offence.

 

As the Jordanian atheist, Mohammed Al Khadra said at the largest gathering of ex-Muslims in history, "Where are your priorities? While we die, you are all thinking about Islamophobia?"

 

Islamophobia is a political term used to scaremonger people into silence; it imposes de facto blasphemy and apostasy laws where none exist. Where such laws exist, there are no accusations of "Islamophobia" but rather imprisonment, persecution and execution.

 

Another speaker at the July conference, Zineb El Rhazoui, who survived the attack on Charlie Hebdo because she was back in Morocco says "the right to blasphemy [marks] the boundary between barbarism and civilisation."

 

As the new edition of CEMB's publication: "The Political and Legal Status of Apostates in Islam" shows, it is especially dangerous for ex-Muslims living under Sharia.

 

CEMB is organising a protest at the Pakistani and Iranian embassies in London on 10 November to highlight a number of cases facing the death penalty such as that of Sina Dehghan, Soheil Arabi and Ayaz Nizami.

 

We are also campaigning for activists like Iraqi atheist Karrar Al Afsoor who has fled to Greece where he is being detained in awful conditions.

 

Despite the targeted persecution and slaughter of freethinkers, though, it is we who are still being blamed for the threats we receive and even when we are murdered - like the woman whose rape is blamed on the length of her skirt.

 

We are outrageously even compared to Nazis for marching for LGBT and ex-Muslim rights at Pride in London by "progressives" who prefer to side with Islam and Islamism than with dissenters. (As an aside, Pride in London is still deciding whether to allow CEMB back at Pride next year given complaints(!) by the homophobic East London Mosque. CEMB has called on Pride to do the right thing.)

 

Spokesperson Maryam Namazie exposed the hypocrisy, double standards and racism of lower expectations at the 40th convention of the Freedom from Religion Foundation when she accepted the Freedom from Religious Fundamentalism award.

 

Thankfully, there are many who continue to support our work and the right to freedom of conscience and expression. This support has meant a great deal to us and enabled us to continue the important work we do.

 

Please continue to support us via donations (no matter how small), volunteering your skills (we especially need help with film editing and graphic design), as well as attending our protests and events. Sadia Hameed and Maryam are speaking at a number of events in Belgrade, Cambridge, Koln, Massachusetts, Melbourne, Nottingham, Pennsylvania and Rome.

 

In London, at our monthly meet-ups, we have everything from an ex-Muslim art workshop to "coming out parties" for ex-Muslims who decide to go public.

 

We hope you can join us at some of our events, including our 10 December End-Year event with food, drinks, speeches, music and dancing. Get your tickets to join us as soon as you can.

 

By the way, Deeyah Khan's film, Islam's Nonbelievers, [Blog Editor: I am posting this 46-minute document about UK ex-Muslims at the end of this cross post] which was about the work of CEMB and the situation of ex-Muslims in Britain and internationally has been shortlisted for the Asi an Media Awards in Investigative Journalism.

 

Thanks again for your support.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you or seeing you at some of our events.

 

Warmest wishes,

Campaign against Sharia law in Britain

 

Join our facebook page

 

Declaration

 

We, the undersigned individuals and organisations, call on the UK government to bring an end to the use and institutionalisation of Sharia and all religious laws and to guarantee equal citizenship rights for all.

 

Sharia law is discriminatory

 

Sharia Councils and Muslim Arbitration Tribunals are discriminatory, particularly against women and children, and in violation of universal human rights.

 

Sharia law is unfair and unjust in civil matters

 

Proponents argue that the implementation of Sharia is justified when limited to civil matters, such as child custody, divorce and inheritance. In fact, it is civil matters that are one of the main cornerstones of the subjugation of and discrimination against women and children. Under Sharia law a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man’s; a woman’s marriage contract is between her male guardian and her husband. A man can have four wives and divorce his wife by simple repudiation, whereas a woman must give reasons, some of which are extremely difficult to prove. Child custody reverts to the father at a preset age, even if the father is abusive; women who remarry lose custody of their children; and sons are entitled to inherit twice the share of daughters.

 

The voluntary nature of Sharia courts is a sham

 

Proponents argue that those who choose to make use of Sharia courts and tribunals do so voluntarily and that according to the Arbitration Act parties are free to agree upon how their disputes are resolved. In reality, many of those dealt with by Sharia courts are from the most marginalised segments of society with little or no knowledge of their rights under British law. Many, particularly women, are pressured into going to these courts and abiding by their decisions. More importantly, those who fail to make use of Sharia law or seek to opt out will be made to feel guilty and can be treated as apostates and outcasts.
