Where is the reporting of Christian massacres around the world?

 

Judge Jeanne got ripped off our TV screen this week because she raised a question about a Muslim head covering worn by a Muslim Congresswoman. That made headline news. Meanwhile, Christians are being slaughtered world-wide without so much of a note on any major news source. Why?

 

Basra Armenian Church
The Armenian Church in Basra, Iraq, dates from 1736 but has been rebuilt three times.

As a result of the lack of media coverage, the vast majority of Americans do not know that “4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons” last year.

That number breaks down to an average of 11 per day.

In Nigeria, more than 120 Christians have been gunned down or killed with machetes over the past three weeks, but Breitbart was the only big media outlet to report on it…

As Breitbart News alone reported among major news outlets, Fulani jihadists racked up a death toll of over 120 Christians over the past three weeks in central Nigeria, employing machetes and gunfire to slaughter men, women, and children, burning down over 140 houses, destroying property, and spreading terror.

The New York Times did not place this story on the front page; in fact, they did not cover it at all. Apparently, when assessing “all the news that’s fit to print,” the massacre of African Christians did not measure up. The same can be said for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the LA Times, and every other major paper in the United States.

But they aren’t stopping there.  Bibles are being burned, and any churches that do not “cooperate” with Chinese officials are being either shut down or destroyed.  Earlier in 2019, one of the largest megachurches in the entire country was literally blown to pieces with dynamite

And of course Breitbart is not exactly “mainstream” media.

So why won’t anyone else report on this?

And this isn’t the first time this has happened.  Last June, twelve entire Christian villages in central Nigeria were completely wiped out

In only days, a dozen villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state were wiped out. The affected communities surround the city of Jos—known as the epicenter of Christianity in northern Nigeria’s Middle Belt.

As many as 200 Christians had been killed, however, some residents fear the death toll may be even higher, as more bodies are yet to be recovered, while others were burned beyond recognition. On Sunday, 75 of the victims were buried in a mass grave.

I’ll bet that most of you had not heard about that until now.

On the other side of the world, 20 innocent people were slaughtered when Muslim radicals bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral in January

On January 27, Muslim extremists bombed a Roman Catholic cathedral on the Philippine island of Jolo, killing some 20 people and injuring dozens of others.

Once again, this is yet another mass killing that was almost entirely ignored by the mainstream media.

Is the anti-Christian bias among the mainstream media so strong that they can’t even bring themselves to report the basic facts to us?

Over in China, the persecution of Christians has reached a frightening crescendo.  Recently, officials have been going house to house and replacing pictures of Jesus Christ “with pictures of dictator Mao Zedong and/or China’s current authoritarian president, Xi Jinping”

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to harass and persecute Christians and, in recent months, has taken to removing pictures of Jesus Christ from inside homes and replacing them with pictures of dictator Mao Zedong and/or China’s current authoritarian president, Xi Jinping.

In addition, Communist officials have removed Christian symbols and phrases on the outside of homes and replaced them with phrases praising socialist materialism.

Chinese authorities blew up a well-known Christian megachurch earlier this year, inflaming long-standing tensions between religious groups and the Communist Party.

Witnesses and overseas activists said the paramilitary People’s Armed Police used dynamite and excavators to destroy the Golden Lampstand Church, which has a congregation of more than 50,000, in the city of Linfen in Shanxi province.

So far in 2019, there have been 453 Islamic terror attacks in which 1,956 people have been murdered.  But you will never hear those numbers from the mainstream media.

Instead, when the mainstream media talks about Bible-believing Christians it is almost always an attack story.  As a recent Breitbart article aptly observed, having “an anti-Christian bias” has become “the last acceptable prejudice”…

How much mileage can be gained from Muslims murdering Christians, when Christians in America are often seen as an obstacle to the “progress” desired by liberals? The left sees Christians in the United States as part of the problem and seeks to undermine their credibility and influence at every turn rather than emboldening them.

Anti-Christian bias has been rightly called “the last acceptable prejudice,” one that few bother condemning.

Iran’s Rouhani Makes First Visit Ever To Iraq To “Bypass Unjust US Sanctions”

 

Cable TCM’s showing of “Lawrence of Arabia” recently reminded us of the eternal quagmire of the MIddle East. When I saw this headline out of Zero Hedge I could only feel sadness. How much blood and treasure we have given.  Yet, in today’s news we hear nothing. Only the latest antics of three women plus Sarsour, roaming Congress, Muslim supporting women – who would destroy us from within. Add Israel as well. And the Kurds? We leave then to their own devices one more time.

 

Rouhani

What Iran is billing as President Hassan Rouhani’s first “historic” and landmark visit to Iraq, both the United States and Israel are seeing as a provocative move to solidify Iran’s influence over Baghdad.

Just prior to arriving in Iraq Monday, Rouhani said on state television that his country is determined to “strengthen its brotherly ties” with neighboring Iraq. It’s expected that the three-day visit will result in a wide range of economic deals in fields such as energy, transport, and agriculture; however, as Israel’s Haaretz writes based on a Reuters report:

The visit is a strong message to the United States and its regional allies that Iran still dominates Baghdad, a key arena for rising tension between Washington and Tehran.

 

Over the past year immense tension has grown between allies Baghdad and Washington over Iraq’s reliance on Iran-backed Iraqi Shiite paramilitary units to wage war against ISIS and other Sunni terror groups.

As Al Jazeera notes:

Since Rouhani’s election in 2013, Iraq has relied on Iranian paramilitary support to fight ISIL following the group’s capture of the Iraqi city of Mosul and other territories in both Iraq and Syria.

Now, with the armed fighters facing a final territorial defeat in the Syrian village of Baghouz, Iran is looking for Iraq’s continued support as it faces a maximalist pressure campaign by President Donald Trump after his decision to withdraw the United States from Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers.

But this is ultimately the lasting legacy of Bush and Cheney’s 2003 regime change war and toppling of Saddam Hussein: they overthrew a Sunni Baath secular dictator in exchange for entrenching pro-Iran influence in Baghdad, to the delight of the Ayatollahs.

Washington can now behold the fruits of its neocon interventionist labor as Iran’s president is granted a hero’s welcome in the heart of Baghdad (this after Iran and Iraq were very recently bitter enemies)  all the while US officials in the same city will look on helplessly from the sidelines.

Ilan Omar Used Foreign Propaganda Script When Grilling Elliot Abrams

 

Home Sweet Home
Mogadishu

The only question I had of Rep, Omar was who gave you your attack points at the time of the Foreign Relations Committee hearing with Diplomat Abrams?

You seemed to have a wealth of decades old information considering you were still wandering the cesspool city called Mogadishu when the events you were discussing occurred.

A comparison of texts shows that Rep. Ilan Omar cribbed from Qatar’s state-owned Al Jazeera to script her diatribe against senior American diplomat Elliott Abrams.

Al Jazeera ran a story, “Who is Elliott Abrams, US special envoy for Venezuela?” on February 12. It had no byline.

Omar recycled the story in her scripted attack against Abrams at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on February 13. The video of the hearing shows that Omar did not publicly inform the Committee that she was quoting from a foreign state-funded propaganda source.

 

The key themes from the Al Jazeera article match with Omar’s comments to Abrams, and appear in the same order. Some of the phrasing is similar and sometimes identical. Here is one for comparison:

First theme: Helping Nicaraguan contras and pardoned by Bush

 

 

 

Al Jazeera: “In 1991, he [Abrams] pleaded guilty to two counts of misleading Congress about the Reagan administration’s efforts to help the Nicaraguan guerrillas (known as the Contras) during a period when Congress had banned such aid. He was later pardoned by George HW Bush.”

Omar to Abrams: “Mr. Adams [sic], in 1991, you pleaded guilty to two counts of withholding information from Congress regarding your involvement in the Iran-Cortra [sic] affair, for which you were later pardoned by President George H. W. Bush.”

For more examples go to Center for Security Policy:

This writer, as a former graduate school professor, would have failed a student for cribbing words, facts, and narratives without citing the source. A quick check of online plagiarism detection services shows that Omar did plagiarize her material:

Ilhan Omar wants Keith Ellison to Investigate USA POWERLIFTING Ban on Biological Males from Women’s Events

 

It’s curious as to what motivated our gal Rep Ilhan Omar to wade into this nightmare. She wants her Muslim guy pal Ellison to go after USA Powerlifting for barring males from competing in women’s events.

In her letter to Ellison in support of this investigation, third paragraph down, the operative sentence.

… “follow the example of the International Olympic Committee.”

This caught my eye from a post a couple of years ago:

Men can compete as women in upcoming Olympics

There’s great news for adventurous male Olympic hopefuls: if they declare themselves women and reduce their testosterone below 10 nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to competition, they can compete against ladies.

There’s even better news for these men; according to transgender guidelines approved by the International Olympic Committee, genitalia does not serve as a prerequisite. The guidelines state: “To require surgical anatomical changes as a pre-condition to participation is not necessary to preserve fair competition and may be inconsistent with developing legislation and notions of human rights.”

Let’s just set aside the dressing and showering issues alone.

 

WASHINGTON — Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar recommended Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison investigate USA Powerlifting for barring biological males from women’s events, according to a Jan. 31 letter she sent USA Powerlifting.

Omar called it a “myth” that men who identify as transgender women have a “direct competitive advantage” and copied Ellison on the letter, “with a recommendation that he investigate this discriminatory behavior.” (RELATED: Biological Male Wins World Championship In Women’s Cycling)

Omar sent her letter on behalf of JayCee Cooper, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, and whom Omar identified as one of her constituents. She signed the letter on Jan. 31, though it only became public on Tuesday after Cooper posted a picture to Instagram, where it caught the attention of OutSports.

(Check third paragraph down)

 

Ace speculates as to why our gal is after women’s sports. How about his thought?

Why is Ilhan Omar, of all people, jumping on this issue?

Is this because she’s an extreme intersectionalist leftwinger? Or is it because she harbors the usual Islamic notions of what a woman should be and what a woman shouldn’t be, and doesn’t mind the notion of destroying women’s sports altogether?

Maybe women shouldn’t be doing Manly things like sports. Maybe they should just be servicing their husband and making dinner with their husband’s other wives.

Boy Scouts of America now add All Girl Troops and Muslim Troops

 

If the Boy Scouts thought they had problems with the addition of girls, how about the infiltration of the Muslim Scouts? Are there special Christian Scouts? Will the Muslims have to accept girls? Of course not. Let us not forget the indoctrination of girls into the Muslim Girl Scouts.

Their subversion is a big win for you:

Washington, D.C., marked the end — and the beginning — of an era this weekend when the Boy Scouts of America established its first all-girl troops in the nation’s capital.

 

The Boy Scouts were a pillar of traditional American culture at its healthiest.

 

All-girl Boy Scout troops. It’s a new era, all right.

“It brings unity to the female gender,” said 11-year-old Tatiana Johnson, whose shirt also made a statement, reading: “Anything boys can do girls can do better.”

At least that is probably true when it comes to reciting feminist talking points. But maybe the boys will catch up, as BSA moves away from teaching honor, godliness, and self-reliance in favor of a more politically correct orientation.

The Boy Scouts were right-wing in their values. But they surrendered those values when they gave in to social justice warriors pushing the feministhomosexual, and transsexual agendas.

Now on to this Muslim thing,

 

 

Muslim Girl Scout Troop coming to your town soon

Can you imagine if we set up a Christian Girl Scout Troop? If we had a special celebration when they took their first Communion complete with a special patch? I don’t want to even think about what is happening with the boys and their scout troops. Note the paragraph that I highlighted in the post.

As-Salaam-o-alaikum!

Welcome to the official website of the Islamic Committee on Girl Scouting.
We hope this website will make it easier for Girl Scouts, Troop Leaders and Parents to access information, provide ideas and learn about upcoming events.

New Salaah and Sadaqah Patch – now Available

I’ll wager that Robert Baden-Powell (1857-1941), founder of the Scouting movement, never imagined that a Girl Scout troop in the United States would be celebrating little girls donning the headscarf – but that’s what happened at a recent event held by theMuslim Scouts of Michigan at the Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. Tarek El-Tablawy of The Associated Press describes the scene when 43 girls, ages 8 to 11, attended a Takleef Festival, described by the Arab-American News as “a celebration of girls committing to hijab.”

The girls line up in two groups — one dressed in white, the other in pink gowns and hijabs. On stage, they approach a copy of the Quran held by another girl. Gently kissing its spine, they pass underneath as parents in the audience snap away with digital cameras. “That’s my baby,” beams one father. …

Organizers of the Takleef celebration are well aware of the spiritual and cultural challenges these girls face in deciding to wear the hijab. “A couple of these girls are taking the veil before their mothers are,” says 38-year-old Ali Ibrahim, one of the scout volunteers organizing the celebration. “We even have one girl whose parents are not convinced and are trying to get her to take off the veil. May God guide her.” …

Just who is Rashida Tlaib – of the vulgar impeachment remark fame?

 

By now most of us have heard of Rashida Tlaib, famous for her vulgar impeachment screed made recently. But just who is this piece of work? No surprise really. A Soros sponsored anti-Semitic Muslim for Congress gal. Let’s take a quick look. No doubt just a beginning.

Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) did not disclose the name of the source of funds for a fellowship that was paid by liberal billionaire George Soros—as required by the House ethics committee—and also disclosed a lesser amount than she received, according to a review of tax and financial disclosure forms. (She of course will get a pass.)

The Washington Free Beacon obtained the most recent copies of tax forms for a number of Soros’s organizations, including the Open Society Institute, the legal name for the Open Society Foundations, the entity in which Soros pushes millions in funding to a number of liberal causes and organizations.

An expenditure of $85,307 to Rashida Tlaib in Detroit, Mich., from 2017 is shown on page 97 of the 321-page report to “increase involvement of disenfranchised urban communities of color with their local governance process by creating a community benefits strategy for equitable development and creating a leadership training for impacted residents focused on negotiation skills and identifying leverage at the local level.”

Tlaib did not report any income in the amount of $85,307 on financial disclosure forms submitted as she was running for office, which identified the names of the sources that provided her income in three of four cases.

However, the fourth reported source of earned income is marked as a “Leadership in Government Fellowship,” but does not identify who provided the payment.

A press release from 2016 shows that Tlaib was chosen for a “leadership in government” fellowship by Soros’s Open Society Foundations along with seven other individuals.

Tlaib was paid $139,873 by Soros’s group in 2016, tax forms show. Between 2016 and 2017, Tlaib received a total of $225,180

Linda Sasour Skypes into High School about Women’s March and Radical Agenda

 

 

What a way to start the New Year. Indoctrinating our kids, This from Pamela Geller.

Sarsour has no loyalty to America. On the contrary, her loyalty is to Islamic triumphalism and the imposition of sharia on the only country in history that is based on individual rights and freedom. Sarsour has but one loyalty: to jihad. And this Pennsylvania high school is treating her as if she is some sort of hero of social justice and women’s rights. If her beloved sharia were implemented, these high school students would quickly discover what her vision of women’s rights is really all about.

 

We have much to do to protect our kids. More  here

 

 

This from several years ago. She was already at it.
