There are two highly respectable sides to the debate over Syria. One side — a large conglomerate of both Reaganite conservatives who prefer to keep intervention down to the barest moral necessities, Bush-era “neocons,” and millions of ordinary Americans — believes that the Iranian-backed dictator Assad should face the wrath of the United States and Europe for vilely attacking his own people with hideous poison gas, a substance made illegal by the League of Nations in 1919. The other — made up of libertarians, long-time supporters of the president, millennial conservatives, and various anti-authoritarians — believes that though Assad is certainly not an award-winning Western ally, his regime (though backed by Iran) is relatively secular and is involved in the war against both ISIS and the ISIS-supporting factions of the Syrian rebellion. “Why would Assad be slowly gaining international support with his successful push-back against ISIS and then suddenly murder his own people?” the strikes’ opponents say. “We heard the same thing in 2003 — we went to war, and everybody was wrong.” They point to the three major mistakes the Bush administration made in its course of action in invading Iraq. Firstly, they placed too much focus on Iraq as a sponsor of Jihād and 9/11, when Pakistan and Saudi Arabia should have been at the top of the list, while not thinking through the implication of live weapons not being found. Secondly, President Bush’s lack of understanding of Islām lead his administration to believe that nation-building was possible in the Muslim world, and that people taught from birth to be murderous slaves could become free, Arabic-speaking Americans. Finally, the administration did not realize that the Iraq war would de-stabilize the region to such an extent that millions of Muslims would then leave the Middle East for the defenseless, generous welfare states of Europe — perhaps laying the foundations for World War III. These are valid points. Still, the president partially retreating from the quasi-isolationist stance of his presidential campaign is healthy, for it recognizes the moral responsibility of the United States to be a leader on the global stage, and not simply retreat from evil done around the world simply because there is nothing to be made from acting. If America does not lead, who will? (China, Iran, and Russia.) Whoever is responsible for the revolting gas attack has been punished, and chemical weapons facilities destroyed. (There is evidence, to which the anti-intervention camp do not answer, that Saddam Hussein’s WMDs were likely hidden in Syria.) Any party who engages in such unconscionable murder of civilians must be punished — the means by which that is to be done is the point of contention. (April 14, 2018, Hassan Ammar / AP)
A recently-released study commissioned by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany — an organization active in petitioning the German government over Holocaust-era lost property claims by families of Jewish survivors — further humiliates the already well-disgraced millennial generation. As reported by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) on Friday, April 12, 22% of the American millennials interviewed for the study said that they had never heard of the Holocaust, or were not sure if they had been told anything. That figure nearly doubles to 41% when the subjects of the same age who gave the same answer from other countries are factored in. The study, conduced between February 23 and 27 of 1,350 volunteers by Schoen Consulting, concluded that a full 31% of all respondents said that around two million or fewer Jews were murdered during the war, rather than the correct figure of six million. While disgusting, this is no surprise. The current rising generation, born between the middle 1980s and 2000, is the most ignorant in the history of civilization. Raised on a steady diet of degenerate popular culture and socialist high school and college indoctrination, the most crucial lessons of history are utterly unknown to most young people. This is not to say that there have been no efforts — the “Facing History” program in high schools and Hollywood film masterpieces like “Schindler’s List” — but the “Facing History” program has, like many, become utterly corrupted by ridiculous or pointless leftist causes like combatting “Islamophobia” or “hate.” Within the educational systems of the West, the images of the Nazi period and the Holocaust are drummed up simply for propagandistic purposes — namely the smearing of conservatives — while never actually revealing the true cause of genocide: their cherished idol of “social justice.” The collectivist notion that a group of people is not only monolithic, but to be held responsible fully for whatever good or ill the society wishes to pin on them is a cornerstone of statism, and a mainstay of modern liberal identity politics. From the causes of the genocides in Armenia to Rwanda, this is what the lack and perversion of Holocaust education is successfully attempting to hide. This is why Donald Trump is Hitler, while Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Ayatollah Ali Khāmene’i are not. The hundreds of Hungarian Jews selected to be short-lived slaves or marched to the gas chambers on the ramp at Birkenau (pictured) largely had no clue of what had happened to their society. Neither do the youth of the West — for whom the record of past evil is remembered merely for the most petty of political purposes. (c. June 1944, Galerie Bilderwelt / Getty Images)
Disgraced and fired former FBI Director James Comey’s 304-page gasterpiece “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” is both a valuable tell-all and a worthless joke which history shall swiftly forget. With its April 17 release by Flatiron Books, Comey intended it to be his ultimate case for virtue vs. Donald Trump. What it shall be is a revelation of James Comey the leaker, narcissist, and, most of all, a politician in what every FBI agent swears shall be the government’s least political organ. As a psychological profile and account of his own actions, the book is of great value; as evidence against President Trump it could not be more worthless.

While the media have covered the sensational fact that post-Gaddafi Libya has developed a booming slave industry trading in the waves of black Africans fleeing the civil war in Nigeria, they have focused on this issue as part of the “migrant crisis.” While many of those being sold as slaves are refugees from violence in their native countries, the media have largely ignored the true significance of this phenomenon. Slavery is supposed to have been a tradition of white Europeans forcing dark-skinned people into bondage to serve the imperial needs of white settlers and the colonial powers’ exploitation of the land. Today, however, we can see that some of those we are told the white man has disenfranchised the most — Arabs and Muslims — are the ones buying, owning, selling, and trading the slaves. And the slaves are black. In fact, by population, black Africans are still the most thoroughly enslaved people on earth — but white colonialism largely ended in the 1960s. The media will not say that it is significant that Muslims have black slaves. They certainly will not give the reason: Muḥammad, the man every Muslim believes is the most perfect man who has ever walked (Qur’ān 33:21), bought, owned, sold, and traded black African slaves. The Muslim sources repeatedly document this fact: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 6161 and 7263, and Sunan an-Nasa’i 3858 and 4625. They also tell of how the man who supposedly invented racial equality in the sight of one God said that the very worst possible leader of a Muslim community would be “an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin” (Bukhārī 7142) and said that “Whoever wants to see Satan let him take a look at Nabtal [ibn] al-Ḥarīth!” who was “a study black with man long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks” (Ibn Isḥāq, “Sīrat Rasūl Allāh,” p. 243) — because saying that the Devil resembles a black man is acceptable if Muḥammad says it. The same sources also go out of their way to describe Muḥammad as white-skinned man: Bukhārī 63, and Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 6071 and 6081 to name but a few. Nobody expects the media to research the gigantic, multi-volume tomes of Muslim aḥādīth to find the Islāmic roots of slavery, but having the honesty to notice the pattern of Muslims owning black Africans in the Sudan and Mauritania, now Nigeria and Libya, would help. The scourge of one man owning another on the earth’s most bondage-ridden continent shows Islām at work. And, just by chance, in the very way to completely discredit the Obamas and Sharptons of this world, who have for so long claimed to be the saviors of the black man — men who knew from 2011 onwards that people who looked like them were owned by others, in a country the last administration took pride in “liberating.” (August 25, 2011, Remi Ochlik / IP3 Press)
As the flowers of spring come nearer, feminists can reflect upon all the things which the understandable depression of the winter season has prevented them bringing into the sunlight of public outrage. In the case of people for whom rape can be defined as anything from an awkward compliment to regrets over bouts of voluntary promiscuity, one would imagine that little girls in faraway lands being married before they know what a trimester is, would be among the things which feminists are presumed to professionally expose. Alas, the regularity of Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, and Gloria Steinem’s well-paid speaking engagements crowds out their ability to actually talk about things which would make them real rather than pretend humanitarian heroines. According to none other than the government Registry Office of the Islāmic Republic of Iran, between 2013 and 2016 alone, there were 148,670 marriages of Iranian girls below the age of 15 — approximately 1-in-20 of the total marriages recorded during that period. And that statistic does not even include those under 19. One would think that the little brown girls against whom any aggression whatsoever, we are told, is always racist would be at the top of Bustle.com’s list of “feminist” priorities. But since nearly 150,000 little girls are being raped into oblivion every day because of a 5-letter word no one is allowed to say, Linda Sarsour suddenly doesn’t have the ovaries to talk about it.

How Leftists are Acting Exactly as Islam’s Followers

by Aynaz Anni Cyrus

I am a very proud American, and I can officially say that I have spent more time in America than I did in my homeland of Iran. America is my home. But I watch the left in America literally and openly reinforcing the attack on America and our only ally in the Middle East, Israel, by calling for it to be wiped away.

The reason I say the leftists are hyper-focused on Islamization is that nearly everything they do and promote today concerns Islam, facilitating an Islamic government, and Islamic countries which are all aimed at taking down American society as we know it, and wiping Israel off the map. The left literally has the same slogan, whether they want to believe it or not. “Take America down and wipe Israel off the map!” For the love of God, they kick people out of your rallies who carry a flag that represents Israel. And then they have the audacity to walk around saying that they are all about love and tolerance and we need to coexist while at the same time ousting those who don’t do what you tell them to do. That’s not how people coexist! You tell me how that works!

In order to get the bigger picture, let’s go back in time ourselves for a bit.

In the Islamic Republic of Iran before 1979, Iran was called the “Mini America.” If you Google Iran before 1979, you begin to realize women were very Westernized then. Women wore skirts and tank tops; were able to wear make-up and there was no hijab; women were teachers, and we had women in every position of government. It was very beautiful. Freedom! You could be whatever you wanted to be. You want to be Muslim? You could be Muslim! You want to be Christian? You could practice the Christian faith! Jewish? You bet! You could be whatever you wanted to be as long as you didn’t bother other people and infringe on their rights.

Sadly, and tragically, in 1979 Ayatollah Khomeini came in to power in Iran, hijacked the revolution, and turned the country into an Islamic country, with the first mandate being that all women must wear the hijab. Mandatory!

He wasn’t making anything up; it’s in the Qur’an (24:31).

Here’s where it got interesting: Some of the women felt that no government had the right to come in and tell them what they could or could not do, and what they could or could not wear. They resisted this order and here is what happened: The Supreme Court, which is a Shariah court, simply ordered a new law be passed:

You wear the hijab, or we force you to wear it, or there would be dire consequences.

Case in point: After the new mandate went into effect, if a woman was walking down the street without a hijab the police would stop her and pin the hijab to her forehead with a safety pin. Literally. Pin it to the skin of her forehead. This not a story. This if fact.

If a woman was not wearing full-length pants, if she dared have a dress or skirt on, she would suffer a fate like one straight out of the once-popular competition television show Fear Factor. Only this was no volunteer competition to win cash and prizes. This was a reality that would be someone’s worse nightmare; they would forcibly grab their leg and shove it in a bag of live cockroaches. That is what they did to my people! No one dared walk out of their apartment without a full hijab.

Next came the order that woman cannot wear make-up; Shariah enforcers would have napkins or cloth with them and wipe the lipstick or make-up off any women they saw who dared wear this in public. Sounds not as bad as cockroaches, right? But the cloth was laced with acid. They were not just getting rid of your lipstick, they were getting rid of your lips. The government! Khomeini, the Supreme Leader, allowed women to be tortured by the police with acid! To remove lipstick!

These people are ruthless, they have absolutely no code of honor. They don’t care! This is how they took over my country.

Now some may argue that this was several decades ago, and that is not happening now. Wrong! Let’s fast-forward to my life and my story:

I was walking home from school with a friend of mine. We were walking and whispering because we were not supposed to be loud, and all of a sudden I felt my head being jerked backwards and heard a single sound of a snip. I turned and saw a Shariah enforcement woman holding my hair. She literally cut off my hair! As we were walking a bit of my hair accidentally had fallen lower than my scarf and it was showing from under my hijab. She grabbed it, cut it with a scissors and I could not say a word. I stood there watching the woman standing there with my hair in her hands and I could not say a word. But inside, I said, “Screw you, I will regrow my hear.” (I never let Shariah take me, I resisted as much as possible silently in my heart; it was my only means of survival.) That’s how they do it! They break you into submission!

Now we have Linda Sarsour, Madonna, Ashley Judd, Scarlett Johansson, who are just dying to go to the Middle East because women have so many rights; who are so oppressed here in America under this beautiful United States flag. Who are so worried about women’s rights.

I dare you to go to the Middle East, go to Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar; any of these countries, and I dare you, Ashely Judd, to be a nasty woman in any of those countries. I dare you! See what happens. You won’t be able to see another day of being a nasty woman.

So in reality, let’s cut the crap. What are you looking for? More rights? Obviously, you have no idea what not having rights means. I do. That is why I am holding on tight. That is why I wake up every day thinking what else can I teach my fellow humans? What more can I do? Anything to keep what happened in my country from never happening here!

You have no idea what it means to be oppressed. Not a clue! When you were nine-years-old, no one came told you, “Hey, by the way, starting tomorrow you will become an adult! You will have to start behaving as an adult with all responsibilities. You must begin to follow the laws of Mohammad, fight in the name of Allah, be willing to die in the name of Allah, and, your daddy can sell you to whomever comes or pays for you first.”

The Madonnas and Ashely Judds of this world should just be ashamed, and go get a life. Go be an activist with a movement where you actually know what you are talking about! If you are not going to help us fight for our freedom just get out of the away. Leave!

Yes, this message is going out to all you women who claim to be so oppressed by President Trump!

Yes, I am calling you out: women like Whoopie Goldberg, Linda Sarsour, Madonna, Ashley Judd, Scarlett Johansson.

You are not happy here? Then Google a country with a president you like and go there.

Just go! You are taking an entire country down because you are not happy with President Trump?

Let’s for a minute not care about Shariah, ISIS, Khomeini, or terror attacks; let’s not even care about the prophet of Islam. Put it all aside, let’s go to the root. Go ahead — read the Qur’an.

I have said it before, when describing Shariah and Islam, that they are like a time machine. But instead of going forward, however, we go backward 1,400 years. They come and they conquer and, boom, we find ourselves all the way back to the Stone Age! What the left is doing is much the same.

The media’s attitude is of “Let’s not talk about Israel and the good they represent,” and “Let’s not talk bad about Islam because Muslims are getting their feelings hurt,” while the next moment the followers of Islam go blow up things and kill people. And we can’t be critical of that? Don’t talk bad about Antifa because then they go destroy property and hurt people. So, I guess we should hand over our freedom and future…

This isn’t me being brave; this isn’t me being courageous. This is me being terrified. I fight because I am terrified of those days coming back to me. I breath for this fight because I love the freedom that I earned.
