The Huffington Post published three new articles in January 2017 which defend the Muslim Brotherhood, encourage Islamist demagoguery, and promote an anti-Semitic blog.  The first three examples posted below report these new Huffingtonpost.com articles, respectively.  The remaining examples report Huffington Post articles that fundraise for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), blame Islamophobia for worldwide conflict with Muslims, and promote other Islamist propaganda.

FIRST EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on January 13, 2017 titled Ted Cruz vs. The Muslim Brotherhood Boogeyman. "How the senator’s new bill could destroy American Muslim groups and lead to the “wanton violation” of civil rights.  A bill introduced this week by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) calls on the U.S. State Department to determine whether the Muslim Brotherhood is a foreign terrorist organization. Advocates for American Muslims suspect a darker purpose ― to smear and potentially prosecute American Muslim advocacy groups, a move that could prove disastrous for the civil rights of Muslims in this country."

It is most troubling to see American media defending the Muslim Brotherhood.

SECOND EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on July 13, 2017 titled Katy Perry PSA For American Muslims Asks ‘Is History Repeating Itself?’  "The video has a surprising (and haunting) twist.  Confronted with an increase in hate crimes and Islamophobic rhetoric, American Muslims have been organizing, educating and speaking out.  Now, an unexpected and somewhat controversial ally is bringing awareness to the fight that America’s Muslims are facing over the next four years ― pop star Katy Perry."

This propaganda diminishes the threat of radical Islam and grossly distorts the approach needed to address it.

THIRD EXAMPLE:  Israel National News published an article on July13, 2017 titled Huffington Post refuses to remove anti-Semitic blog.  "Huffington Post Arabi, Arabic version of left-wing media outlet, retains overtly anti-Semitic blog decrying Jews as 'murderers of Mohammed'."

The Huffington Post demonstrates bias against Israel.

FOURTH EXAMPLE:  Huffingtonpost.com published an article on November 22, 2016 that encouraged peopled to financially support the Hamas-Muslim Brotherhood linked Council on American Islamic Relations.  “With Trump threatening a national Muslim Registry and hate crimes against minority groups massively increasing in the days after the election, it’s critically important to support organizations like CAIR.”

FIFTH EXAMPLE: The Huffington Post published a report on October 12, 2016 titled Islamophobia Just Drove This Boy And His Family Out Of America.  (The Huffington Post changed this article after being exposed for publishing erroneous news.)  However, The News & Observer published a news report on October 14, 2016 titled Investigators find no evidence Muslim child was attacked on school bus.  “At this time, nothing has been found, and no police report has been filed,” Cary Town Manager Sean R.    

SIXTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on October 6, 2016 that is headlined:  Let’s Talk About All That Anti-Muslim Garbage In Your Newsfeeds.  "And it’s not just your crazy ― but lovable ― uncle sharing these memes. It’s your school board chairwoman, your town council member, your postal worker and your state’s agricultural commissioner.  These memes would have you believe that the Quran compels Muslims to violence, that Muslims want to take over the U.S. and implement (gasp!) Sharia, that Islam hates women, and that all Arabs are Muslim and all Muslims are Arab.  In short, these posts are garbage."
 
Leftists ignoring the fact that violent texts from the Quran are taught in mosques across America does not reduce the impact on the minds of their followers nor the threat to millions of Americans.

SEVENTH EXAMPLE The Huffington Post published an article on Apri1 26, 2016 titled Did Jesus Predict Muhammad? A Biblical Portal Between Christianity and Islam.  The article states in part:  "The time has come for Christians and Muslims to make peace between our communities. Our planet simply cannot afford another century of misunderstanding and violence between these two communities.  In an earlier blog on the Huffington Post about the problem of Christian Islamophobia, I argue that Christians have the opportunity to transform the way we see Islam and Muslims by accepting Muhammad as “Spirit of Truth.” However, the majority of Christians still maintain a fundamentally Islamophobic position on Muhammad. So I believe that the time has come for peacemaking Christians to contradict this position directly. Changing our view of Muhammad—so that we recognize him as a true prophet rather than discredit him as a false prophet—would effectively inoculate Christians against Islamophobia and would help to establish a new paradigm of cooperative Christian-Muslim relations."

The Huffington Post article: Erroneously blames alleged Christian Islamophobia for the worldwide conflict between Muslims and infidels;  Dangerously perverts the Holy Scriptures of the Bible to falsely elevate Muhammad to a Judaic Christian status; and  Tragically ignores the millions of Muslims around the world who support the killing of hundreds of thousands of Christians.  The Religionofpeace.com provides a detailed report of Muslims killing Christians.  Yet, the Huffington Post article has the audacity to blame Islamophobic Christians for the worldwide conflict between Muslims and Infidels

EIGHTH EXAMPLE: The Huffington Post published an article on July 21, 2014 titled 6 Convincing Reasons Debunking the Myth of Islam Promoting Hatred of Jews and Christians.  All a person has to do is to read some of the violent and uncivil quotes from the Quran to realize this article is defending the indefensible.  This subjective narrative demonstrates clear bias for Islamism. 

NINTH EXAMPLE:  The Huffington Post published an article on December 16, 2016 titled Muslim Civil Rights Group Honors Jewish Counterpart With Award.  The Investigative Project on Terrorism published the following about this HuffPost propaganda.  "So the first Jewish group that CAIR honors is a venomously anti-Israel one that retails propaganda against the Jewish state and ignores the genocidal anti-Semitism of its foes.  The “Defender of Liberty” award that CAIR gave to Jewish Voice for Peace ought to be regarded as a mark of shame for an organization which claims to represent Jews and work within the Jewish tradition while advocating for policies that would expose the Jews of Israel to greater danger, greater poverty, and greater international opprobrium.  CAIR, JVP, and the Huffington Post, all such staunch promoters of Islamist terrorist front groups, deserve one other."

Where is Suit-Wearing Jihadi Suhail Khan Today?




Where is Suit-Wearing Jihadi Suhail Khan Today?

Prolific suit-wearing jihadi Suhail Khan was in the White House on 9/11.  After officials discovered his father was a prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader, he was moved out but found himself back in the fold in a relatively short amount of time, serving two Secretaries of Transportation with.  This gave Suhail Khan a security clearance, access to America's infrastructure, and a great resume boost.

Khan

He continues his war against America as a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood's movement here.

Khan's father, Mahboob Khan, founded the Muslim Students Association as well as the Muslim Brotherhood's largest organization in North America, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).  ISNA has an annual award entitled the "Mahboob Khan Award," which should give readers and idea of his influence in the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

This would explain why Khan said - at the 1999 ISNA conference - muslims love death more than non-muslims love life - a common statement heard out of the mouths of ISIS and Al Qaeda jihadis on the battlefield.
He also thanked an praised Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi, who also fondly spoke of Suhail's father.

See the UTT video of Suhail Khan HERE.

Suhail serves on the board of Muflehun with the former President of ISNA (ie a jihadi) Mohamed Magid, where the two were deeply involved in the creation of the Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council - a Muslim Brotherhood operation to deceive naive Jewish leaders into believing jihadis like Khan and Magid had "come to their senses" and no longer hate Jews or deny the holocaust.

Khan also serves with the Institute for Global Engagement where Muslim Brotherhood propaganda is supported, encouraged, and directed at a significant level in the United States.

Suhail Khan continues his work with Republican strategist Grover Norquist, and has been a guest at CPAC, where he is defended by Republicans against those who speak truth about the fact he is a terrorist...technically a jihadist.

This level of penetration into our system continues.  Suhail Khan is still walking the streets welcome in Republican circles.

Khan is now the Director of External Affairs for Microsoft, which might explain the pro-Muslim add campaign from Microsoft in December 2016.

ACTION ALERT: Take Action Now on the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act

ACT_Email_Banner.png


ACTION ALERT:
Tell Your Representative to Co-Sponsor the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act


It’s go time!
The U.S. has officially designated entities of the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorists, including Hamas, al Qaeda, Palestinian Islamic Jihadists, etc. but has NOT designated the organization as such in its entirety.
We cannot stress how critical such a designation is for our national security!
In its Explanatory Memorandum, the Muslim Brotherhood explicitly stated;
“The process of settlement is a Civilization-Jihad process…The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”
This type of blatant and cunning threat cannot be ignored any longer!
GOOD NEWS:  Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) recently reintroduced a bill in the U.S. Senate alongside Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Florida) in the U.S. House directing the State Department to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.
This bill is named “The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act.”
With an incoming administration that understands how dire the stakes are in this fight, the passage of this bill faces essentially zero chance for a veto!
But we need your help…
Please take action on behalf of your country, and contact your elected officials to express how adamant you feel about the passage of this bill.
We have already prepared a pre-written email, which can be sent automatically on your behalf, OR you can modify the document to your choosing.
Click here to send an email to your representative!
We also encourage our members to call their elected officials and voice their forthright support for this measure.
When you dial 202-224-3121, you are directed to an operator at the Capitol switchboard. This switchboard can direct you to senators, as well as representatives.
Again, the bill at stake is “The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act.”
For the sake of your country, community, and family, please express how strongly you feel about this measure.
Again, click here to send an automatic email and/or call the capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121.
Remember, always leave a message if calling.
Once again, we cannot stress how critical the passage of this bill will be for winning the war on terror.
How can we defeat an enemy we are not even able to label?
Such ignorance allows for the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist entities to continue operating unfettered both strategically and financially. No longer!
Thank you for your continued efforts on behalf of this nation.
Please don’t wait, email now.
For freedom,

The Islamization of France in 2016
"France has a problem with Islam"

by Soeren Kern  •  January 17, 2017 at 5:00 am
  • "I am not an Islamophobe. Women have the right to wear headscarves, but I do not understand why we are embracing this religion [Islam] and those manners that are incompatible with the freedoms that are ours in the West." — Pierre Bergé, French fashion mogul.
  • French security officials rejected an Israeli company's offer of terrorist-tracking software that could have helped them identify the jihadist cell that carried out the attacks. "French authorities liked it, but the official came back and said there was a higher-level instruction not to buy Israeli technology," a well-placed Israeli counter-terrorism analyst revealed.
  • Jacques Hamel, the priest who had his throat slit by two Muslims in Normandy, had donated land adjacent to his church to local Muslims to build a mosque, and they had been given use of the parish hall and other facilities during Ramadan.
  • At least five of the jihadists who carried out the attacks in Paris and Brussels financed themselves with social welfare payments: they received more than €50,000 ($53,000).
  • Muslim employees at Air France have repeatedly attempted to sabotage aircraft, according to Le Canard Enchaîné. "Concerning Air France, we have seen several anomalies before the departure of commercial flights," an intelligence official said.
  • "There will be no integration until we get rid of this atavistic anti-Semitism that is kept secret. It so happens that an Algerian sociologist, Smain Laacher, with great courage said that 'it is a disgrace to maintain this taboo, namely that in Arab families in France and elsewhere everyone knows that anti-Semitism is spread with the mother's milk.'" — Georges Bensoussan, sued for alleged hate speech against Muslims for having made this statement.
  • The Mayor of Beziers, Robert Menard, was charged with incitement to hatred for tweeting his regret at witnessing "the great replacement" to describe France's white, Christian population being overtaken by foreign-born Muslims. "I just described the situation in my town," he said. "It is not a value judgement, it is a fact. It is what I can see."
French riot police attempt to control a crowd of migrants in "The Jungle" squatter camp near Calais, on February 29, 2016, as demolition teams begin dismantling the southern part of the camp. After being pelted with stones and other objects, police responded with tear gas and water cannon. (Image source: RT video screenshot)
The Muslim population of France was approximately 6.5 million in 2016, or around 10% of the overall population of 66 million. In real terms, France has the largest Muslim population in the European Union, just above Germany.
Although French law prohibits the collection of official statistics about the race or religion of its citizens, Gatestone Institute's estimate of France's Muslim population is based on several studies that attempted to calculate the number of people in France whose origins are from Muslim-majority countries.
What follows is a chronological review of some of the main stories about the rise of Islam in France during 2016:
JANUARY 2016

The "Peace Conference": An Outright Admission of Failure

by Shoshana Bryen  •  January 17, 2017 at 4:30 am
  • After 23 years and billions of dollars, the Palestinians still lack "infrastructure for a viable... economy." They cannot manage "service delivery." And there is no "civil society" in Palestinian Authority (PA) areas able to express dissent or disapproval of Mahmoud Abbas's 12-year power grab of a 4-year presidential term. Gaza under Hamas is worse.
  • Even the Europeans and John Kerry acknowledge that the Palestinians have no capacity for self-government. This is, in part, because there has been no demand by the donor countries for such things as budgetary accountability and transparency, or a free press and civil society in PA areas to demand more and better of its leaders.
  • The PA also pays terrorists and their families with foreign donations. And then there's the matter of Palestinian corruption and outright stealing.
  • The Trump Administration will have a lot on its plate beginning this week. But if it really wants to help the cause of Israel's security, legitimacy and acknowledged permanence in the region, it would do well to insist that U.S. taxpayer dollars be spent accountably or not at all, until the Palestinians get their financial, as well as political, house in order.
The Paris Peace Conference, January 15, 2017. (Image source: Ruptly video screenshot)
The Paris Peace Conference was not as bad as it could have been. The British and Russian governments sent low level delegations. Some of the wording in UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2334 disappeared, and the assembled agreed to resolve "all permanent status issues on the basis of United Nations Security Council resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973), and also recalled relevant Security Council resolutions." Resolution 242 is the benchmark for Israel's security requirements and its right to legitimacy and permanence in the region. And "recalling" is somewhat different from "planning to enforce."
Most interesting, however, is a three-part section toward the end. The mostly-European plus American gathering:

Is Judith Butler the New Edward Said? | Caschetta at American Thinker


Is Judith Butler the New Edward Said?

by A.J. Caschetta
American Thinker
January 14, 2017
Be the first of your friends to like this.

Judith Butler

Of all the non-Middle East specialists writing on the Middle East, few have been as prolific or as indecipherable as Judith Butler. More than an academic, she has become a pop culture figure. In an age of identity politics, Butler's identity as a Marxist, feminist, lesbian practitioner of critical theory who writes prolifically about gender and transgenderism have made her among the most interviewed active college professors. But her anti-Israel advocacy has made her a star, and a possible successor to the late Edward Said, another academic whose fame rests more on tendentious scholarship and agitprop than rigorous, objective research.
With a Ph.D. in philosophy and a professorship at UC Berkeley's Comparative Literature department, Butler might have led a career as a big name academic, which is to say very well known by perhaps as much as one tenth of one percent of the American population. But as the face of academe's Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, she reaches and influences a much wider audience.
Her academic fame springs from her assertion that gender is performance, an idea lauded as "performative gender theory" or just "performativity." At its core, this is a rendering of the postmodern obsession with "false binaries." Butler refutes the biological binaries of male and female in the manner that deconstruction theory identifies the "unstable" cultural binaries located in all language (truth/falsehood, freedom/slavery, good/evil). Butler argues instead that "gender is in no way a stable identity or locus of agency from which various acts proceede [sic]; rather, it is an identity tenuously constituted in time – an identity instituted through a stylized repetition of acts."
Depicting biological determinism as just another linguistic problem to be deconstructed and historicized, Butler's prose is pompous, jargon-heavy, and probably indecipherable to those not immersed in language theory (and even for many who are). For instance, she writes that gender is "a construction that regularly conceals its genesis. The tacit collective agreement to perform, produce, and sustain discrete and polar genders as cultural fictions is obscured by the credibility of its own production."
Even her book blurbs are turgid. Dispossession: The Performative in the Political (2013), announces: "This book interrogates the agonistic and open-ended corporeality and conviviality of the crowd as it assembles in cities to protest political and economic dispossession through a performative dispossession of the sovereign subject and its propriety."
Butler's turn away from literature and language theory in favor of Middle East politics, criticism of U.S. foreign policy, and demonization of Israel came in a collection of essays titled Precarious Life (2004) in which she focused on the effects of the 9/11 attacks on America. What many people would describe as an atrocity, Butler describes as a "dislocation from first-world privilege, however temporary." Her condemnation of terrorism rings about as hollow as Kofi Annan's or Yassir Arafat's. Not only is Butler unwilling to condemn Hamas and Hizb'allah, her tepid equivocation contains more than a hint of comradery: "Understanding Hamas, Hizb'allah as social movements that are progressive, that are on the Left, that are part of a global Left, is extremely important. That does not stop us from being critical of certain dimensions of both movements." Despite the great admiration that the Left has for Hamas and Hizb'allah, neither group shares any of the Left's ideals and anyone claiming otherwise is delusional.
Butler's version of the academic fad called "intersectionality" connects the victimization of homosexuals and various minority groups with the victimization of the Arab people who inhabit what she calls "Israel-Palestine." This permits identifying Israel as the analog to the homophobic, white supremacist empire she finds so prevalent throughout the world.
A surprising condemnation of Judith Butler comes from Carey Nelson, former president of the American Association of University Professors, who recognized that "Butler's and the BDS movement's first goal is to maximize international hostility toward Israel, a project destined to harden positions, not move the peace process along."
For someone who has made a career out of refuting the binary option, Butler is curiously blind to her own portrayals of a colonizing and marginalizing (bad) Israel, and the oppressed and innocent (good) Palestinians. Marginalization of "the other," it seems, is only something Israelis and conservatives do, Palestinians and leftists being immune to bigotry.
Butler makes a point of criticizing the Geneva Conventions for their "selective criterion to the question of who merits protection and who does not." This of course misses the point that the Conventions were crafted to exclude practitioners of illegal war from the protections granted to legal combatants. As John Yoo puts it, those who do not "operate under responsible command, wear uniforms, carry their arms openly, and obey the laws of war" operate illegally. Legal and illegal war is another binary that Butler rejects.

Edward Said

After the November 2015 massacres in Paris, Butler scolded the world for its inordinate, selective mourning of dead French people when so many Arabs were killed (50 in Beirut and 111 in "Palestine") in the prior weeks. Implying that the Hamas and Hizb'allah fighters are innocent civilians arbitrarily killed by Israel, Butler urged everyone to "consider how the metrics of grievability work" and embrace what she calls "transversal grief" -- equal grief for all dead. But just as with her confusion over legal and illegal combatants, Butler fails to recognize that not every life is worthy of our grief, and not everyone deserves to be mourned.
Unique among leftists, Butler does not give lip service to the "two-state solution." In a book titled Parting Ways: Jewishness and the Critique of Zionism (2012), she announces "a new ethos for a one-state solution." It will be what she calls a "bi-national state" -- effacing all of Israel and forcing Jews to live as a minority in a Muslim-majority Palestine. In her characteristically confusing style, Butler explains that "only when bi-nationalism deconstructs the idea of a nation can we hope to think about what a state, what a polity might look like that would actually extend equality." This is a dangerous fantasy, ignorant of history.
So what to do about an influential thinker who can't distinguish between friend and foe, legal combatant and terrorist, innocent civilians killed sipping lattes in a Parisian café and Hamas operatives killed by the IDF? I suggest we preempt her ascension by boycotting her terminal cultural relativism, divesting ourselves from her gimmicky prose, and sanctioning with righteous opprobrium anyone who honors her political writing with the term "philosophy." One Edward Said is quite enough.
