The media scrubbing of the motive in the Jihadi attack in Boston is breathtaking. Mothers, babies, families blown to bits — 200 victims. When did the “enemedia” lose their souls? When did precious human life become an inconvenient consequence to their narrative?

Walking down 5th Ave recently, I noticed a UNIQLO store at 53rd St.
Japanese owned, and always interesting, I’ve enjoyed shopping in the midtown store near Port Authority with its eclectic assortment of clothes and “things”. [Correction, that store is called ” Muji USA” ] at any rate, I headed in and UP one of the many escalators to explore this MUCH larger store.
I saw nothing but clothes, clothes and more clothes neatly displayed throughout the many levels and corridors and then I came upon a unique display of mannequins arranged in a VERY dramatic Martha Graham-like pose….
Are those hijabs or ‘head scarves’… yearning to break free…
A symbol of the “moderate” Muslima embracing western fashion? Or just a headscarf. (You can make a case for either one)
Perhaps these ARE hijabs, meant to subtly open-the-eyes of the western shopper to the fashionable wearing of “hijab” ’round-the-world.
This is Malaysia:
And this is Malaysia
This is from a catalog in New Zealand …
And in the U.S., I’ve seen many western dressed muslimas …skinny jeans etc …who also wear hijab. (below was in Times Square 2012)
So, perhaps those very short-shorts….very high-heels … that barely-dressed look…is okay… as long as you wear hijab…
The models in the UNIQLO catalog dress smartly in western designed clothes…tight, slim and sexy… reaching out to their global customers … Yet, it’s in NY that we see the ‘head scarves’ … not in the Malaysian catalog.
There were many ‘hijabs’ on the mannequins. ‘Headscarves’ in the windows, all over the store. So, perhaps we’ll soon see “our own” dressing in-style with these faux hijabs? (not that’s there anything wrong with it)
The NYC campaign…. is it hijabs…or headscarves…
I have no answer. But,
“as the world explodes and Jihadists have the general population on tenterhooks, what is the U.S. government’s response to the obvious warnings that abound, warning us of the threat of Islamists in the West?” (Pamela Geller)
And ” WE get MORE Sharia. Our every move watched. Big Brother, surveillance, draconian travel procedures, counter-Jihadists blacklisted and now: Restrictions on Free Speech. SHARIA. Ever more sharia.”
So, maybe those ‘hijabs’ on the mannequins on Fifth Avenue have a purpose, along with the proliferation of hijabs and niqabs all over Times Square. As this pictorial study from summer 2012 observed, PERHAPS these ‘head-scarves’ are another sign of the encroachment and Rise of The Caliphate in the West.
Perhaps this Hijab fashion is coming to America…and maybe…to a store near you?

This was one day before the SAVAGE, murderous attack by two Jihadis against American citizens. An attack that was meant to maim and to kill PEOPLE, not soldiers, not combatants … just… PEOPLE.
The Jihadis were, they are, SAVAGES
After an intense week that followed these SAVAGE attacks, and not knowing if the Jihadis would be captured, the Great Neck speeches have become even more prescient. Listening to Pamela Geller at Chabad House warn of the threat of Sharia Law to our Free Speech and then to Robert Spencer and their other guests tell of the world-wide threat and horrors of living under Sharia while outside Habeeb Ahmed’s “Human Rights” Office , has made the week’s enormous tragedy even more ominous and chilling.
Habeebgate, the alleged attempt by the Islamic supremacist Habeeb Ahmed of the Nassau County Human Rights Commission to use the power of his position deploy his mujahideen in a covert effort to intimidate the Great Neck synagogue into cancelling my scheduled speech there.
Habeeb and his accomplices ordered their minions to strongarm the shul, make calls, and get the synagogue leaders to cancel a proud Jew scheduled to speak at their synagogue. (more here)
As a result of this egregious violation of the public trust, we urge the Nassau County Executive to remove this thug from office.
We welcome this investigation and hope the imposition of sharia blasphemy laws using public office will be punished to the full extent of the law. American law for American courts. Stop sharia in America.
ONE DAY before so many were killed and maimed by these vile Jihadis, Geller and Spencer were warning freedom-lovers of what lies ahead after being accused of hate-speech by some who fear the truth. TRUTH should never be called HATE SPEECH.
Jihad is at war with freedom-loving Americans, with the INFIDELS. And the ‘enemedia’ continues to ignore the glaringly obvious facts of who did the Boston Marathon Bombing. And WHY. While the MSM continues the false narrative that Islam is not at war with the West and spins on-and-on with foolish guessing.
A quote from face book regarding the WHO, WHAT and WHY.
“This is typical Middle Eastern cognitive dysfunction. It is a culture of dishonesty. And yes, I consider Georgia, Chechnya, Uzbekistan and Turkey to be part of the Middle East.”
As expected, there were Jihadi families and ACLU-types trolling for proof-of-innocence for the surviving Jihadi. Disgusting. Disturbing. Predictable.
Two Savages. ARMED with bombs. Prepared to kill Americans. They were NOT finished. And we know WHY
Evil advised them. Taught them. Skilled. Determined to “Kill The Infidel”.
Will the FBI uncover the sleeper cell with whom these brothers were associated?
“We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone:” FBI hunting 12-member jihad terror sleeper cell linked to Boston jihad murderers”
More than 1,000 FBI operatives are working on this. They need 10,000 of these politically correct, defanged Keystone Kops, and even then they probably won’t find this cell. They are forbidden to examine the motives and goals of the type of people they’re looking for — to do so would be “Islamophobic,” according to the Obama Administration. So they’re fumbling along in the dark, pretending that there is no such thing as an Islamic terrorist while hunting for Islamic terrorists.
Are we victims of this terror? Have we become immobilized as a country? As a people? (CAIR would like this very much) Or…will we REFUSE to be terrorized. Some final thoughts from Daniel Greenfield:
“2 out of 3 governments agree that dealing with terrorism is all about having the right attitude. That, “Yes, we’ve been bombed, but we’re ready to pick ourselves up and get on with our lives without drawing any conclusions from what happened” attitude that politicians patriotically advocate as soon as the carnage is over.
“Americans refuse to be terrorized. Ultimately, that’s what we’ll remember from this week,” Obama said in his radio address.
But of course Americans were terrorized. Obama’s message is that in response to the terrorism, Bostonians won’t spend the rest of their lives locked in their homes, at least not until the next time there’s a terrorist on the loose. But then again neither are Rwandans or Sudanese. This isn’t so much an inspirational message as a pat on the back from a government that once again failed in its duty to keep Americans from being terrorized.
If America had refused to be terrorized, the Tsarnaevs would not have been admitted to this country or would have been shown the door once they started adding terrorist videos to their playlist. Instead Tamerlan Tsarnaev was free to slap around his girlfriend while his brother Dzhokhar was adding classic hits to his YouTube playlist like “We Will Dedicate Our Lives to the Jihad.”

EXPOSED! Anti-Christian pogrom by Muslim SAVAGES in Lahore, Pakistan.
On March 9, 2013, The Joseph Colony, a modest Christian Community, was destroyed by 3,000 marauding Muslim SAVAGES! The devastation was overwhelming.
Over 100, possibly 200, homes destroyed, burned to the ground. Also their Bibles, crosses and churches. Incinerated. Gone. Accused of blasphemy. Punished for being Christians.
This is how peace loving Muslims are treating Christians in Pakistan. It’s time to wake up and to raise our voice for their rights, to help eliminate Christian persecution.
I learned of this horrific crime when I received an important video from associate, Jonathan C. He sent a link to a video shot a few days ago by a Christian girl in Lahore, Pakistan. A Christian he knows through face book. She filmed this with a borrowed (and hidden) cell-phone. Fifteen days after the attack, the Christians of The Joseph Colony were still living in squalor on the streets. And the police were no longer welcoming cameras that might expose this shameful treatment of their citizens by the Punjab Government. Something the government of Pakistan wants to keep hidden.
Yet, one individual, a Christian girl, has dared to expose this unending devastation. And the WORLD would be kept ignorant of this horrific crime but for her bravery. She shot this video, followed by the police the whole way, so she could show the deplorable conditions the Christians of Joseph Colony are forced to live in; camped out in tents on the street surrounded by garbage, with no hope of recovery. No one is helping them!
The government did send some checks, 265 checks ($5000 each) but only to those who were a member of the government’s political party.
“The checks were meant to serve as compensation for a March 9 attack in which an over 3,000-member mob set fire to more than 150 Christian homes in Joseph Colony after alleged blasphemous remarks against Prophet Muhammad were made by Sawan Masih, a 28-year-old Christian sanitation worker.”
“The incident in Lahore began on Friday, March 8, 2013 after a Muslim accused a Christian man of blasphemy, an offence that in Pakistan is punished by life in prison or death”
Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch) observes that it is not surprising the checks bounced, as those considered infidels are not entitled to monetary compensation by Muslims. Rather, it is the other way around. Of course Spencer is referring to the “jizya” — a poll tax Islamic leaders demand of their non-Muslim subjects.
Quoting from the Quran 9:29:
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
The government arrested some Muslims for the violence, but now other Muslims are threatening to attack Joseph Colony (again) if the government doesn’t let the arrested Muslims go. Will the Pakistani government be able to save them from another attack? Will they even try?
In her video, this Christian girl, shows how these people are living on the sidewalks off the main street, in tents, and she talks to a man who lost everything. He tells, from his perspective, how the attack got started. When the government told people to come in and show paperwork proving what they had lost, this man gave them the paper work for his lathe machine (for which he had saved for 30 years) they took the piece of paper and tore it up right in front of him.
Jonathan asks that we please pray for these people. They are quite desperate right now. And if you’d like to help in any way, just contact him through you tube. What follows is her video.
Joseph Colony – Eye Witness Account – 3-24-2013
Please, share this video. Let everyone see what’s really going on in Lahore, Pakistan where there is NO JUSTICE for The Joseph Colony and, if the attacks continue, NO PEACE.
The unfortunate incident of Joseph Colony wherein over 100 Christian homes, shops and stores were vandalised and burnt by an unruly crowd after an individual was accused of committing blasphemy, reflected the extent of religious intolerances in our society. The incident has brought collective dishonor and shame to the nation, which already reels under violent episodes occurring from incidents of religious intolerances. The Punjab Police admitted before the Supreme Court on a suo moto notice that the concerned station house officer of the police registered the blasphemy case against the accused Christian man as he succumbed to the pressure of a building crowd around the police station. The complainant did not even mention any derogatory remark in his application that could be construed as a blasphemy committed against the person of Holy Prophet Mohammad (SAW).
Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights Chairman, Afrasiab Khattak, has said the constitution ensured equal rights to people of different religions.Talking to the journalists during his visit to Joseph Colony, Badami Bagh, on Friday, he said that all people were equal before the law and Islam gave a message of peace, tolerance and patience. He said he condemned such incidents that disrupted peace in the society.
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had announced Rs0.5 million in compensation for each of those affected in the mob attack. However, the 265 cheques distributed by the government have bounced.On March 9, an over 3,000-strong mob had set ablaze more than 150 houses of Christians in the Joseph Colony over alleged blasphemous remarks against Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by Sawan Masih, a 28-year-old Christian sanitation worker.
See this brief, heartbreaking video below documenting the damage done by the criminal mob at Joseph Colony, Badami Bagh, Lahore. All efforts must be made to rehabilitate them and provide them with justice. When is enough enough? Or have we still not reached the breaking point? Also see my earlier article on the ‘blasphemy’ laws and the dangers of ignoring malicious intent when accusing someone of this crime.Muslims brunt down more than 150 Christian’s Houses, no dead body BUT, every thing is badly burned. Dozens Bibles, three Churches,Dowry of girls, Valuable property and animals were burned alive. Dozens of inhabited houses, three thousand peoples including infants, school going children, woman’s affected. Extremist Did Urine on Bibles than burn the Bibles! Pakistani Media is not showing burnt Bibles on TV Channels even they don’t want to talk about it!++++
Victims of Religious Extremism Joseph Colony Lahorefrom Pastor Asher Aziz 3 weeks ago not yet rated
On March 08, 2013 Muslim extremist burnt down more than 150 Christian’s houses in Joseph colony Badami Bagh Lahore Punjab Pakistan. On March 11, 2013 we bring food for them and review that people lost everything they didn’t need just Food but Sympathy, Kindness, Love, Care, Satisfaction, Support, Clothes, Vessels, Shoes, Bedding, Blankets, Sheets and Beds etc“What is our future here? They took all of our possessions of value” 2:04.” Christians have no value or importance” “Our Bibles were burnt! Churches were destroyed!”.2:16 One woman could not find her daughter. (we can guess what that may mean)..“They’ve burnt EVERYTHING! Emptied safes and purses of this modest community..A “maulvi” with flowers (a sunni religious scholar) ordered the destruction and LOOTING. threw bibles and crosses on the FLOOR.3:56 Terrorists (SAVAGES) attacked our neighborhood.Robbed. I have nothing left nothing for my children. My grandchildren. I am FINISHED..++
Samuel is a mother to a four-month-old daughter – a normal, contributing member to society. Yet, now she feels like a second-class citizen.
“We were told by some Muslim neighbours that our house had burnt to the ground. They advised us not to come back. When we finally did, all we found were ashes,” she recalls. “This happened just because I am a Christian. Being a Christian isn’t a crime, is it?”
It is a CRIME in The MUSLIM WORLD….

March 16, 2013. Washington, DC. CPAC (The Conservative Political Action Conference). This was the last of the 3 day conference. I hadn’t intended to cover CPAC this year after Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan, once again, censored the panels and topics more severely than they had in the past. Their control as board members of CPAC is complete: No criticism of Islam is permitted. EVER.
Once the voices of TRUTH, Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, were shut out (as were others) Brietbart News made the brave decision to host a CPAC panel of those voices: The UNINVITED.
It was a superb panel comprised of Rosemary Jenks of Numbers USA, Dan Gouré of the Lexington Institute, Nina Shea of The Hudson Institute’s, Frank Gaffney of Center for Security Policy, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch and THE Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs.
All last minute, but I managed to be there. the room was packed. I grabbed a couple of shots as the people were streaming in.
Geller and Spencer were my focus. I have their speeches, the Q and A and the opening remarks by Brietbart News Executives, Congressman Steven King of Iowa as well as Former Attorney General, Michael Mukasey. ENJOY! (Videos can be watched in HD)
Opening remarks by Larry Olav, CEO of Breitbart News (and a childhood friend of Breitbart’s), Steve Bannon, a executive with Breitbart News, Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) and Larry O’Connor, Editor of Breitbart TV.
Opening speaker was Former Attorney General, Michael Mukasey. Due to a camera malfunction I was unable to record the end of Mukasey’s speech. Got most of it and a few responses to the Q & A that followed. [There is a slight slip in video at 17:16 .The speech goes in to Q& A at 18:23]
Robert Spencer of JihadWatch.org spoke on “Why I am Not a Conservative”. At one point, Spencer responds to Bannon assertion, “This is NOT personal”. It’s about the TRUTH. Norquist and Khan and who they are aligned with. The Muslim Brotherhood. Just like Obama. Foreign Policy and Domestic Policy. They must be exposed. It must be talked about. They made it necessary to create this “Uninvited” Panel.
“Death of Free Speech” was the topic of Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com . As she shared her very public battle to post her ads exposing Sharia and Jihad.
In the these excerpts from the Q and A, we hear responses from Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Steve Bannon and others. Orly Taitz was in the audience and had a complicated exchange with moderator Steve Bannon.
An, also, Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute who spoke on the Persecution of Christians in the Muslim Middle East.
Geller has more on the panel posted here>>.
And a few more pictures I managed to take during the panel
And after in the Exhibit Hall (as I hurried to get my AMTRAK back the Manhattan) I found Ann Coulter signing books:
Some electronic ‘rifle’ target practice at the NRA Table.
A Pro-Life table with it’s life size babies:
And as I left the Exhibit Hall, I noticed that traitorous JERK , Adam Kokesh. He has, of late, masqueraded…. for the gullible…. as a Republican, a Libertarian and NOW a news reporter. His wiki link is annoying, as it leads off with the ridiculous claim that he’s a Republican. Adam and his comrades were there….checking us out….
I saw one video Kokesh made at CPAC 2013, where he smugly interviews a CPAC attendee about “liberty”. (This is Adam’s video)
And for the curious, more on who “Adam-the Man” really is. His disgusting “Dancing at Jefferson Memorial” .
Curiously, on the table in the back ground, is a box that says ‘Al Jazeer Public TV”. Wonder what that table was about….
BTW- as I entered the Gaylord Convention Center/Hotel , and was lead to where I was to pick up my press-pass, I saw THIS t-shirt on a woman ( that could have been a Laurie Arbeiter clone. The Arabic below says “We will not be Silent”.
Arbeiter, is an antiwar activist with a group called the Critical Voice,). Wish I’d had my camera out and ready to grab a picture of that shirt passing by. Wonder what part of CPAC they were covering ….
CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) 2013. Suhail Khan and his pal, Grover Norquist, are the “movers and shakers” ( who sit on the CPAC Board) behind the shut-out of Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller at CPAC 2013.
They thought they’d pulled that off in 2012 ( the shut-out) but it took one more year to succeed. They hide-in-the-shadows but this video of Suhail Khan from CPAC 2012, in his OWN words, exposes the man, bringing him OUT from the shadows…
In the video, beginning at 1:28, Suhail responds to the questions from those who wished to discuss the Muslim Bros and Sharia. Suhail responds at 1:35
” That’s not what this panel is about…your groups and other Alinsky-like tactics you want to use aren’t welcome”
And at 2:25, a woman encourages those at this panel to also attend Dr. Spencer’s presentation, Suhail responds:
“Dr Spencer, with all due respect, doesn’t know what he’s talking about and that’s why we have a panel of people who actually know what they are talking about…here…to answer those questions.”
So, in response to the current events taking shape at CPAC 2013, and along with Suhail’s ridiculous 2012 responses, I’m re-posting a video and pictures from CPAC 2009. 2009 seems to be the only year that a Muslim organization actually had a booth in the Exhibition Hall: “Muslims For America”
During the day “Muslims for America” handed out literature in the Exhibit Hall saying that they are “Proud to be Americans” and stating that they are “American Muslims. The New Generation”
Their literature reveals, perhaps, their real intent, particularly in regards to Geert Wilders’ appearance at CPAC and his documentary, “Fitna”.
Their flyer below states:
“At this year’s conference, Muslims For America would like to make the following plea to all Conservatives — End Racism and Xenophobia Amongst Conservatives”
In reading the whole flyer there is also this,
” …stop aligning ourselves with those that use our Big Tent to witch-hunt against harmless groups that could otherwise be our allies”
And these flyers that call “Fitna” a HOAX:
Apparently by 2010, Muslims For America had ‘enough’ of the Republican party. According to Wikipedia , they left the Republican Party due to bigotry against Muslims and the lack of support for Park51 aka The Ground Zero Mosque.
But, CPAC 2009 seemed very supportive. CPAC allowed “Muslims For America” to participate officially but were most unhappy that Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller were hosting Geert Wilders (unofficially). CPAC permitted “Muslims For America” to “educate” CPAC attendees but denied any debate as to the veracity of their message. No welcome-mat from CPAC for the great Geert Wilders, or Geller, Spencer and their guests. No opposing points-of-view allowed.
Shameful behaviour on the part of CPAC in 2009, 2010,2011 and 2012; ESPECIALLY in 2013. CPAC has shown the world what DHIMMITUDE looks like.
Yet, Muslims For America claimed Muslim bigotry drove them away from the ‘Republican Party’ in 2010. Did this include CPAC?
And NOW, in 2013, Dr. Spencer has been proclaimed the clear winner of the 2013 CPAC Bloggers Award!! Now known as the “Grover’s Choice Award”, since Dr. Spencer will NOT be permitted to accept this award, NOT if he intends to say anything critical of
“…there was a slight problem: the Tea Party group, which co-sponsored this People’s Choice Blog Award, didn’t want to allow me to receive it at CPAC next week unless I promised not to criticize Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan as I accepted the award.
I told the organizer that I couldn’t agree to that. He asked me if I had planned to talk about Grover and Suhail. I said no, I hadn’t, but I had to now.
So that’s that. The People’s Choice Blog Award is now the Grover’s Choice Blog Award. I will not be going to CPAC and will not be receiving this award.Norquist and Khan are the controlling forces at CPAC. They have this year finally succeeded in barring AFDI from hosting an event about the Islamic supremacism they enable. And now they have overruled the People’s Choice for the winning blog, and made sure that one more voice exposing their unsavory activities will not be heard. This is the conservative movement in 2013.”
By 6 PM, on February 27, 2009, the ‘Muslims for America’ moved up to the Blue Room… still handing out there anti-Wilders literature and then entered the ballroom.
They sat at a table in the back of the room with a surly demeanor. Many wondered if this could have been handled differently, as their presence seemed to influence Mr. Wilders security to leave during the showing of Fitna. Granted he’d had a full day and was exhausted, but these Muslim malcontents were permitted to sit amongst those who came to support Mr. Wilders and their hostile demeanor was quite obvious.
Prior to Geert Wilder’s speech and the showing of “Fitna”, Dr. Spencer responded to the flyer that was handed out by “Muslims For America” . Flyers that claimed the Koran passages used in Fitna were taken out of context. As usual, Spencer was in great form and absolutely shows that he DOES know what he’s talking about. Is Suhail Khan LISTENING??
Using a book written by Muslims for Muslims to help interpret the Koran, Spencer showed that the passages weren’t out of context at all. He skillfully DEBUNKED this ridiculous flyer (see video below) Spencer begins speaking at approx 5:05
Perhaps Norquist and Khan might have wanted “Muslims For America” on-site with their “We are Patriotic Americans” message year and every year, to oppose Islamophobes like Geller and Spencer, et al. Since they didn’t become disenchanted with the Republicans til 2010, where did they go? Did they just appear at CPAC for the purpose of opposing Geert Wilders?
For those who are interested, a re-post of Geert Wilders’ speech that day in 2009 , that video follows next:

“It’s the college coming out in support of a vicious, hateful group, plain and simple,” New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind told The Jerusalem Post at the rally. “This isn’t about free speech. The issue is very simple: the sponsorship is inappropriate.”
My previous experience at Brooklyn College was in March of 2011, when David Horowitz was the speaker in opposition to the slanderous “Israeli Apartheid” Hate-Fest. Pictures and video are posted here:
An uproar arose from the Marxist student orgs as well as the “Fakestinian” contingent. Free-speech and the right to hear diverse opinions, opinions that contradicted their lies, were denied. They demanded that no one at the college was to hear Horowitz speak. Brooklyn College gave no support to the student organization that had invited Horowitz and the campus police would not supply any security. It was expected that these Leftist agitators and their Fakestinian chums would attend and go unchecked; free to scream and yell at Horowitz so that he could not be heard. His ‘crime’ was defending Israel and criticizing the obscene hate-fest: “Israel Apartheid Week“. The Horowitz event did happen and Horowitz WAS heard, but ONLY because of the action of the fearless Jeffrey Wiesenfeld (of the CUNY Board of Trustees) . Wiesenfeld demanded that the college supply campus security, that was key to permitting the event to proceed without harassment.
David Horowitz was invited by a student organization and was not co-sponsored by Brooklyn College.
Flash forward to a controversial panel coming to Brooklyn College on Feb 7, 2013. A propaganda panel spewing hatred for Israel and the Jews, and YES, co-sponsored by the Political Science Department of Brooklyn College.
The panel features “Fakestinian” Activist, Omar Barghouti and Judith Butler of whom Hikind said, “They think Hamas and Hezbollah are nice organizations and they probably feel the same way about Al Qaeda!”
These same antagonists who were opposed to David Horowitz speaking in opposition to the Israel Apartheid Week, these same groups are now defenders of free speech and ‘diverse’ opinions. On our TAX dime they will have racists and hate-mongers advocating for boycotting, sanctioning and divestment from Israel (BDS) and co-sponsored and protected by Brooklyn College.
Would Brooklyn College do the same for David Dukes? How about racist, Al Sharpton and The New Black Panthers. Would they sanction these speakers? Perhaps not David Dukes since they seem to think he represents the ‘other’ side. If you do not ascribe to the Leftist, Marxist agenda you are ‘dis-invited’.
Yet, a supporter of the BDS panel claims that Brooklyn College,
“By bravely co-sponsoring a controversial forum – which means neither approval nor disapproval but openness to different ideas – you are offering a service to the Brooklyn College community…I believe… that reasonable debate without censorship will bring people to better understandings of each other and the issues at hand.”
They did NOT feel so ‘warm and fuzzy’ when David Horowitz was invited to speak. Those who yell the loudest shut out those of whom THEY disapprove. Bullies and Tyrants. When do we say, “Enough?”
February 7, 2013, should be the day we start to take back our schools from these hate-mongers.. Demand that Brooklyn College sanction speakers who actually represent a diverse reaction to hate-fests like the BDS Movements and Israel Apartheid Week.
On Thursday, January 31, 2013, Dov Hikind (Brooklyn Assemblyman-D ) called a Press Conference to do just that; to say ” Enough!” and to take back our schools from these hate-mongers. Their press release said:
We are calling for Brooklyn College’s Political Science Department to withdraw their endorsement of this event, rather than send the message to its students and to the world that the divisive perspective offered by the organizing groups is Brooklyn College’s official view. In addition, we ask that you remain vigilant in ensuring that events bearing the official imprimatur of the College provide adequate opportunity for diverse perspectives to be heard. We believe that this is the very hallmark of academic freedom.

Hikind called for the department vote on sponsoring the panel to be public:
“Is someone hiding behind someone’s skirt? Release the vote to the public! Those who want to sponsor the event, put your names down!” He noted just prior to the press conference that the college president Gould has cancelled her upcoming trip to Albany to request increased funds for the university. Hikind added that he was disappointed that she would not be able to advocate for additional funding: “You don’t think it has anything to do with the fact that I said I would make her life a little miserable?”
I managed to catch that wonderful challenge from Assemblyman Hikind in the video below ( :11 to :50). Be sure to watch video in HD
Sorry the video is only of the intros. Had a camera malfunction so I was unable to record the speakers. The speakers included former Comptroller and mayoral candidate Bill Thompson, Assemblyman Alan Maisel, Assemblyman Steve Cymbrowitz, Assemblyman Michael Simanowitz, Assemblywoman Rhoda Jacobs , Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein and Assembly District Leader, Ari Kagan.
Also speaking were two students:
There were questions asked by student reporters
And a healthy turn-out of the regular media:
Helen Freedman Exec. Dir. AFSI (Americans For a Safe Israel) also spoke.
Freedman later said in a report of the Press Conference:
“Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind held a press conference at Brooklyn College today, Thursday morning, Jan. 31, 11 AM, to decry the co-sponsorship by the Political Science Department of the College with a hate-filled program of BDS against Israel. Assemblyman Hikind was accompanied by many of the city and state political figures. Every speaker addressed the tragedy of a moral, ethical, intellectual center like Brooklyn College, the alma mater of both Hikind and Freedman, being turned into a center for the promulgation of hate, lies, deceit, and delegitimization of the State of Israel. As Hikind stated, the “academic freedom” hailed by the President of the College, Karen Gould, and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, could be observed without interference, if only the College would withdraw its support. Taxpayer money should not be paying for the promotion of Jew-hatred.”
Rina Yarmish read a statement from Jeffrey Weisenfeld of the CUNY Board of Trustees
STATEMENT BY – Jeffrey S. Wiesenfeld, Trustee City University of New York

“In my 13 years as a trustee of CUNY, I’ve had plenty of opportunity to observe the intellectual corruption and anti-Semitism of many in America’s academic elite. I hear about it from trustees in colleges and universities across America and it’s become more common at CUNY, with Brooklyn College as an unexpected hotbed. The current plans for an anti-Israel BDS conference with the school’s co-sponsorship by the political science department raise new questions.
If an individual professor engages in selective hatred of Israel and the resulting intimidation of Jewish students, that is bad enough. If branches of the MSA (Muslin Students Association, all chapters of which are affiliated with ISNA – the Islamic Society of North America, which is the Muslim Brotherhood on our soil), that is bad enough. I’ll be damned however, if I were to be silent on the official co-sponsorship of an entire academic department of a Nuremberg-like conference on a CUNY campus. This is a misuse of tax-levy funds. This is NOT an academic conference in any sense. Furthermore, other than the intimidation of liberal arts professors who might support Israel, how do we know that EVERY professor in that department supports this drivel?
We must also look at the hypocrisy and intellectual corruption of these accusatory, one-sided conferences The Islamic world, having evicted nearly all of its Jews following the reconstitution of the Jewish State in 1948, murdering many and plundering all of their property, is now exterminating its remaining Christians, Bahais and Zaroastrians – in fact, anyone non-Muslims – whose adherents may have resided in these lands for millennia. Brave columnists like Fouad Adjami, Amir Taheri and other brave Muslims chronicle this dysfunctionality – and far worse – at great risk. Inter-Muslim murder rivals their states’ crimes against other groups as well.
From 1920 to the present, approximately 100,000 Jews and Arabs have died in all the conflicts involving them – most Jews and Israelis as victims of terror and in defensive wars and most Arabs as a result of Israel’s defense or their brethren having cowardly used them as “human shields.” 100,000 Syrians alone have been brutally murdered by the forces of Bashar Assad in the last 2 years. Do these BDS hypocrites care?
These BDS advocates single out Israel as a cover for rank anti-Semitism. It is not about saving Palestinians (who mostly need to be saved from themselves and their leaders); its purpose is to delegitimize and destroy Israel. They do NOT want a two-state solution. To them Tel Aviv and Haifa are “occupied territories” as much as Gaza, long vacated by Israel and now one of the world’s most prominent terrorist launching points. They want a one-state solution – to have yet another of the many Arab states. They deny – as anti-Semites do – the eternal connection, since recordable history, of the Jewish people to their land. They reject all peace offers by Israel. They subjugate their own people to a vile existence in the false belief that they can “wait out the Jews.”
I call upon taxpayers to draw a line here and make it known: taxpayer dollars should not fund illegitimate, racist and anti-Semitic activities by any academic department. Those of us who care about Israel would do no less if others were similarly treated. Additionally, academic administrators should be reminded that Jewish students are no less entitled – under applicable federal law – than other students to an educational environment free of intimidation and prejudice.”
Jeffrey S. Wiesenfeld, Trustee The City University of New York
And from Andrea Peyser of the NY Post:
“The Political Science Department is co-sponsoring a forum Thursday that leaves no doubt about the depravity lurking within Israel-haters’ hearts and souls.
It’s called “BDS Movement Against Israel.” For the uninitiated, “BDS” stands for boycott, divestment and sanctions, a pernicious plot that calls for the shunning of Israeli scholars and the removal of funding and investment from Israel.
I say it promotes ethnic cleansing.”
” 10 City Councilmembers wrote her a letter objecting to the panel. Prominent pro-Israel voices including lawyer Alan Dershowitz lambasted the panel… We don’t believe this program is what the taxpayers of our City, many of who would feel targeted and demonized by this program, want their tax money to be spent on.”

American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI)… Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer…. have brilliantly advanced their fight for freedom one ad at a time…and it’s WORKING! As successful as their last subway campaign was… supporting the Civilized Man and NOT the Savage…
This new campaign is even better! The American Freedom Defense Initiative purchased space next to 228 clocks in 39 stations, reminding s that Islam is dedicated to the Conquest of Infidels. That is their JIHAD..
But, the “Jihad ” taqiyya war continues with the Hamas-Cair propaganda. LIES about Jihad encouraged by a very willing media. And laughably, Pamela Geller has reported that Hamas-Cair claims in a lawsuit that they ‘own’ the words “My Jihad”
Sadly we have a media desperate to believe in the myth of a Western-style Islam. An Islam not ‘at war’ with the infidel. The Media, the Entertainment Industry and the Halls of Academia have bowed their heads to Islam.
HARVARD is the latest tool…. (From Pamela Geller)
“Harvard University has posted a Quranic verse at the entrance of its faculty of law, describing the verse as one of the greatest expressions for justice in history.
It’s to laugh, it’s to cry.
Sharia law is the antithesis of America law.who eagerly bow to the Moon-God by posting a quote from the Quran.
This institutionalized discrimination against non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians, is part and parcel of the quran’s concept of “justice.” But the dhimmi lemmings at the Harvard Law School don’t know that, or don’t care. And so they perpetrate this misleading whitewash of Islamic “justice.”

Tools and Fools placing those of us who value the U. S. Constitution and our Freedoms in jeopardy. Thankfully, stalwart warriors like Geller and Spencer are fighting back with the TRUTH about Islam and Jihad. Brilliantly, AFDI has blanketed the NYC subways with one particular quote from the Quran. They placed this ad beside the subway clocks with a picture of the Towers being destroyed on 9-11. For those who See it, Read it and THINK about it, the message is VERY clear…these were Evil Acts perpetrated by the followers of Mohammed and the Quran.
This IS their Truth : The United States was attacked. The Twin Towers were destroyed. Three Thousand people were murdered in the Name of Allah.
But there are always vandals who seek to destroy the truth thru vandalism. So, on Monday, January 7, I headed back to the lower depths of Manhattan looking for the ads and checking for any possible damage. What I found so far is that only a few were defaced!
And this time the Leftards actually got it ‘right’. Yes! The Quran IS War Propaganda.
And We ARE the Target!
‘Civilized’ Debate” stripped-down to one flippant-phrase:F-U
….”Video Surveillance” everywhere….
Ad surrounded by lots and lots of cameras.
The Clock Ads were everywhere . No denying what REALLY happened on 9-11. WHO did it. WHY they did it. And most importantly, reminding us that they murdered in the name of Allah…
The combination of security cameras and the height of the clocks are, perhaps, a deterrent to the Leftards who love to destroy Free Speech.
But, there was ONE unexpected and encouraging surprise at City Hall. I found THIS sticker on an AFDI ad: Go Army!
(Slide show)- January 11, 2013
Later, as I was walking through mid-town Manhattan, I found a sick example of our hypocritical love-affair with violence and murder. This obscene ‘restaurant’ at 42nd and 8th ave, romanticizes and glamorizes gore and murder. Now THIS IS SICK. Not the AFDI Clock-Ads….THIS…A KILL ROOM with Restaurant, is Obscene and capitalizes on Acts of Savagery.
Got an A rating for dinner (does that include toy knives and/or guns?)
No protests from the Obama Camp, or SEI, whose 1199 office is right around the corner. What’s to protest? Innocent fun, right?
No protests against Islam Human Rights violations.
Hanging of Gays? No protest. Stone Rape victims? No Protest. Make children Sex Slaves? No Protest.
Where-oh-where is the outrage when it comes to coyly mocking murder with a “Kill Room” Restaurant ?
The whole world has turned up-side-down. OBAMA ADMIRES IRAN. Admires Chavez. Castro. Cuba. He has NO respect for Israel and next to NO respect for the United States and our Constitution.
Say NOTHING critical about Jihad or Islam as we IGNORE the assaults around the U.S. by bands of marauding Muslim youths.
Obama wants us to ignore the violence of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas-Cair, ICNA, ISNA, MSA. They have infiltrated our government and as they grow bolder every day, Obama continues to strip our military, our cops (off-duty and retired)….our citizens…. of the Right to Bear Arms.
Wanta bet the SEIU thugs (etc) will be armed?
That Barack Hussein Obama is still our President is beyond the pale…. as is the hypocrisy of a Kill Room…. We are being told that Islam is Good! and the ads daring to tell the Truth about Islam are BAD. This is INSANITY.
But, maybe we can still hope to stop this madness. After all, Geller and Spencer have shown us how to fight back. And Fight We MUST… or Die.
