National defense is “Islamophobic”: Hawaii judge blocks latest version of Trump’s travel ban

Every last one of the blocks of Trump’s travel bans ignores the statute that gives the President sweeping power to limit immigration:
(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.
But now acting to defend the United States is “Islamophobic.”  Trump is recognizing the undeniable fact that there is no reliable way to distinguish jihadis from peaceful refugees. But clearly the Left will fight him to the death to keep him from defending the American people.
“Judge in Hawaii blocks latest version of Trump’s travel ban,” Associated Press, October 17, 2017:
HONOLULU (AP) — A judge in Hawaii has blocked the latest version of the Trump administration travel ban just hours before it was set to take effect.
U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Tuesday granted Hawaii’s request to temporarily block the federal government from enforcing the policy. It was supposed to take effect at midnight EDT Wednesday.
The Trump administration’s most recent restrictions, which affect citizens of Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen — and some Venezuelan government officials and their families.
Hawaii argues the updated ban is a continuation of President Donald Trump’s “promise to exclude Muslims from the United States.”…

Hizballah jihadis entered Germany among Muslim “refugees”

This isn’t all. All of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees. Is it racism and xenophobia to recall that in February 2015, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees? Or that the Lebanese Education Minister said in September 2015 that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country?
Meanwhile, 80% of migrants who have come to Europe claiming to be fleeing the war in Syria aren’t really from Syria at all. So why are they claiming to be Syrian and streaming into Europe, and now the U.S. as well? An Islamic State operative gave the answer when he boasted in September 2015, shortly after the migrant influx began, that among the flood of refugees, 4,000 Islamic State jihadis had already entered Europe. He explained their purpose: “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, inshallah.” These Muslims were going to Europe in the service of that caliphate: “They are going like refugees,” he said, but they were going with the plan of sowing blood and mayhem on European streets. As he told this to journalists, he smiled and said, “Just wait.”
On May 10, 2016, Patrick Calvar, the head of France’s DGSI internal intelligence agency, said that the Islamic State was using migrant routes through the Balkans to get jihadis into Europe.
“Report: Hezbollah militants entered Germany among refugees,” by Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, October 12, 2017 (thanks to Joyce):
Hezbollah combatants have entered Germany since mid-2015 as part of the wave of refugees from the Middle East, according to a German intelligence report reviewed by The Jerusalem Post.
The report released this month shows increased membership for Hezbollah and Hamas in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
“Since mid-2015 there are increased indications of fighters from Shi’ite militias entering Germany as legal refugees,” according to the intelligence report. “The indications regarding roughly 50% [of the fighters] show a direct connection to Hezbollah.”
The EU designated Hezbollah’s so-called military wing as a terrorist organization in 2013.
Militants who entered Germany with no concrete links to a specific terror group had largely fought on the side of Shi’ite militias against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, according to the report.
The danger these Hezbollah members pose is difficult to assess without a close examination of the Islamists, the report read.
North Rhine-Westphalia is home to the Imam-Mahdi Center in the city of Münster, which is a meeting place for Hezbollah members, according to the report. Additional cities where Hezbollah is active in North Rhine-Westphalia are Essen, Bottrop, Dortmund and Bad Oeynhausen, it continued.
It is unclear how many Hezbollah terrorists disguised themselves as asylum-seekers to enter Germany. But according to Germany’s federal intelligence agency, there are 950 active Hezbollah operatives in the Federal Republic.
The intelligence officials said there is no evidence the Hezbollah members in Germany are departing for war zones.
North Rhine-Westphalia’s intelligence agency reported an increase of Hezbollah membership, from 100 in 2015 to 105 in 2016. German intelligence services define Hezbollah members in Germany as part of the Lebanese Shi’ite’s organization’s political wing.
The North Rhine-Westphalia intelligence agency did not detail the number of Hezbollah fighters, who would be sanctioned terrorists, disguised as refugees that entered Germany since mid-2015.
Leading counterterrorism experts do not divide Hezbollah into political and military wings. The US, Canada, Israel and the Netherlands classify Hezbollah as a unitary terrorist organization.
The intelligence document noted that Hezbollah’s goal is the “destruction of the State of Israel as well as Islamic domination over Jerusalem.”
The Post reported in August that German and Israeli lawmakers wrote Germany’s Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière that “it is unacceptable that terrorist organizations [Hezbollah and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine] in Germany are planning events and recruiting supporters while the responsible authorities do not have any legal tools to prevent it.”
De Maizière declined to ban Hezbollah’s entire organization or the PFLP….

Of course not. That would be “Islamophobic.”

Trade Deal with Brexit Britain ‘Vital for the European Union’, Warns Hungary

The Hungarian government is pressing Brussels bureaucrats to adopt a more constructive and conciliatory stance in the Brexit negotiations, warning that a comprehensive trade agreement with Britain is “vital” for the European Union.

“It is in the interests of the whole of the European Union for the strategic relationship with the United Kingdom to continue to exist even after Britain’s exit”, said Péter Szijjártó, the country’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, in an interview with the MTI news agency.
“Hungary’s standpoint is clear: we want a fair Brexit and the broadest and most comprehensive agreement possible on future cooperation.”
Asked if such an agreement should include a trade deal, the minister was unequivocal:
“It is vital for the European Union, and accordingly also for Hungary, that a free trade agreement is concluded between the United Kingdom and the European Union.
“Because if we do not succeed in coming to such an agreement, then the World Trade Organisations (WTO) regulations will come into force … and that would mean the appearance of customs and non-excise related obstacles to bilateral trade.
“In view of the fact that the British economy provides one-seventh of the EU’s economic performance, and also taking into account that today’s global economic and global trade environment is built on speed, freedom from obstacles and comprehensive standardisation, failure to conclude a free trade agreement would have tragic consequences for the European economy,” he stressed.

Don't be fooled; practical European leaders like Hungary's foreign minister know a 'No Deal' scenario hurts the EU more than the UK. 
This is not the first time Mr Szijjártó has underlined the importance of the United Kingdom — which will be the European Union’s single largest export market after Brexit — to EU-based businesses.
In an interview on BBC Newsnight earlier this year the foreign minister told a clearly uncomfortable James O’Brien — normally a fierce opponent of Brexit — that, contrary to popular opinion, ‘No Deal’ represented a “nightmare scenario” not for Britain, but for the European Union.
“If there’s no deal, if there’s no comprehensive economic, trade and investment agreement, then we will be in big trouble in Europe, because the last time we were able to implement a free trade agreement was in 2011 with [South] Korea,” he explained.
“So the problem is the EU is very slow on free trade agreements, and if Britain gets free hands then you will be able to sign free trade agreements with India, with Turkey, with the U.S., with Australia, with which the European Union does not have free trade agreements.
“So, if this is the case, then it will harm our competitiveness, harm the competitiveness of Europeans furthermore … we want the most comprehensive economic trade and investment partnership with the UK in the future.”

Research by the Civitas think tank suggests that trade under WTO terms would cost British exporters roughly £5.2 billion in additional tariff costs — but Britain would raise roughly £12.9 from tariffs on EU imports as well as saving between £10-20bn in annual controbutions to the EU budget, providing ample resources for exporters to be compensated through a range of research and development grants and general tax cuts.

Unelected Juncker Orders Austria’s Kurz to Form ‘Pro-Europe’ Government

The unelected president of the European Union’s (EU) executive arm has urged the democratically elected Austrian premier to form a “pro-European” government.

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker made the comments in a letter to Sebastian Kurz, whose Christian Democrat Austrian People’s Party (OVP) topped the polls with 31.7 per cent of the vote.
The right-wing Freedom Party (FPO) came in second place on 27.4 per cent, above the Social Democrats (SPO) on 26.8 per cent.
Whilst the SPO is pro-EU, the FPO is Eurosceptic, promising to hold a referendum on withdrawing Austria from future EU bailouts and opposing EU migration policy.
Mr. Kurz is expected to form a coalition government with the FPO, which could be hostile to the EU and form alliances with other Eurosceptic governments like Hungary.
Mr. Juncker’s intervention, therefore, could be seen as the EU president pushing Mr. Kurz to go into coalition with the SPO rather than the FPO. He wrote:
Lieber @sebastiankurz, ich möchte Sie dazu beglückwünschen, dass Ihre Partei bei der 🇦🇹  die meisten Stimmen gewonnen hat.
“I would like to warmly congratulate you on your party winning the most votes during the Austrian parliamentary election.
“There will now be challenges Austria and you, yourself will have to face. Soon, Austria will play an outstanding role being the presidency of the council of the European Union.
“Under Austria’s responsibility, a number of important decisions regarding the European Union will have to be made.
“Therefore I wish you great success building a stable and pro-European Government and I look forward to working together in the future.”
In 2000, former OVP leader and Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel formed a coalition with the FPO, which infuriated the EU and prompted calls for a boycott.
Mr. Juncker did not go as far this time but has made his opposition to the FPO clear before. In an interview with Le Monde in 2016 he said:

“I do not like them. With these right-wing populists, it is neither possible to debate nor having a dialogue.”

Austria a ‘Bulwark Against Mass-Migration’: German Populist Leader

The Bundestag chairman of the anti-mass migration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party Alexander Gauland expressed joy at the results of Sunday’s Austrian election saying the country had now become a “bulwark against mass-migration”.

Mr. Gauland, who led the Alternative for Germany in their successful recent campaign in the German national elections last month, said that he wanted to see a coalition form between the populist Freedom Party (FPÖ) and the Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) who came first in the race.
Though he expressed a desire to remain out of Austrian affairs, Gauland said he would like to see “that a government forms between ÖVP head Sebastian Kurz and Heinz-Christian Strache of the FPÖ,” Tag 24 reports.
The AfD and the FPÖ have maintained a connection over the last several years with previously both being members of the European Parliament group Europe for Nations and Freedom (ENF). The AfD left the ENF earlier this year when its sole representative Markus Pretzel quit the party following the September national election.
Former AfD leader Frauke Petry, who also quit the party last month to start her own party, has maintained friendly relations with FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache who led the FPÖ to one of their best electoral results on Sunday evening.
While the AfD does not look to be included in the next German coalition, many have predicted that the FPÖ will sign a deal with Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) leader Sebastian Kurz who scored a big victory in the election.
Both the FPÖ and the ÖVP have made similar policy promises on issues of mass migration and Islamisation. While Sebastian Kurz has taken a hard approach to Islamisation by passing a ban on Islamic veils known as the niqab and burqa, Heinz-Christian Strache has vowed to ban Islamism entirely.

Talks for a new coalition are expected to occur in the coming days and weeks.

UK: Muslim migrant rapes woman 2 weeks after being allowed to stay in country, screams “Allah is going to get you”

“Al-Shamary, 21, entered Britain illegally in 2015 over land. He fought to be allowed to stay and received leave to remain as little as two weeks before the savage assault in May of this year.”
The British authorities let this man, who entered Britain illegally, stay in the country, but banned Pamela Geller and me from entering the country for the crime of telling the truth about Islam and jihad. Meanwhile, Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation. Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.
The UK Home Office recently admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”
May’s government also admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country.
“Kuwaiti migrant raped woman on a riverbank, court hears as judge asks for pre-sentence report on his ‘attitude towards women,'” Telegraph, October 16, 2017:
A Kuwaiti migrant raped a stranger on a riverbank just weeks after being granted legal status in the UK, a court heard, as a judge asked for a pre-sentence report about his “attitude towards women”.
Abdel-Aziz Al-Shamary’s victim had left a pub in Darlington, County Durham, when Al-Shamary beat her and raped her on the grassy bank of the River Skerne.
Arresting officer PC Jackie Mallows told the court: “He kept telling me not touch him and he also said “I will not speak to you, you are a woman – in my country we speak to men.”
A jury convicted Al-Shamary by a majority verdict after almost five hours deliberation.
Sentencing was adjourned for three weeks by Judge Sean Morris who told jurors: “I would like to see a report looking into his attitude towards women.”
He said an extended sentence may be an option he could consider.
Al-Shamary, 21, entered Britain illegally in 2015 over land.
He fought to be allowed to stay and received leave to remain as little as two weeks before the savage assault in May of this year.
Teesside Crown Court heard his bloodied and sobbing victim, a white British woman in her thirties, was found lying face down with her jeans and pants pulled around her ankles.
Heavily intoxicated Al-Shamary was arrested nearby and refused to allow a female police officer to touch him.
In police custody he was heard to yell: “Do you know Saddam Hussein? I am Saddam Hussein, I will not talk to you, you are a woman.”
He also shouted on two occasions the words “Bitch country” while he was being taken into custody, the court heard.
Earlier in the evening he had left Gemma Stirling shaking with fear after confronting her as she walked along the street with a male friend.
He called her an “ugly bitch, ” adding she was “not worthy.”
Ms Stirling told the court : “As he walked away he said ‘Allah is going to get you.’ ”
The complainant in the case gave a harrowing account of her ordeal, which she said took place as she left The Greyhound pub in Darlington on a night in May this year….
She said : “She was crying hysterically with blood all over her and she was screaming that he had said he would kill her if she told anyone….
Al-Shamary said he fell into conversation with the woman and was “curious to know more about her, in a normal way.”
But she told him to go away and he raised a hand to her face, causing her to fall over, he claimed, adding that it was his efforts to help her up that led to her jeans and pants falling down….
Yeah, sure, that’s it: her pants just spontaneously fell down. What a coincidence!

Swedish TV Celebrates Launch of Arabic ‘How-To’ Sex Book For Newly Arrived Migrants


A Swedish journalist is launching a new series of sex education books, which he says are aiming to answer key questions posed by newly arrived migrants about how to meet people, how to flirt, and how to have sex.

Aiming to reach as many people as possible, the explicitly illustrated book Me and You will be published in three editions. As well as Swedish, there will also be an Arabic language version “especially for those who are new to Sweden”.
The books follow a previous title by the author, the Simple Sex Book for children (pictured above).
The book was featured on Sweden’s TV4 Tuesday morning, where a number of the illustrations were revealed to the breakfast show’s audience. In one, a bearded and hooded man is shown imagining a group sex fetish scene where one woman wears Mickey Mouse ears as she mounts a man, while another woman wields a flogger.
Another picture appears to address the issue of underage sex abuse, in which an apparently young girl embraces an adult woman, and asks whether they can have sex — the adult replies that she wants to wait.
Explaining the process of creating the book on his website, former government radio journalist Inti Chavez Perez states he “interviewed hundreds of young people, new arrivals, immigrants and born Swedish people”. Answering the questions they posed, Perez explains in the book “How do you get in touch with someone in a hurry and how do you get together?”, as well as, “Is masturbation dangerous?”
Elsewhere on his website, the journalist shows off his work with young Swedes, where in one class of 20 pupils of 10-12-years-old he led a “workshop on gender roles”, teaching that “Gender roles and other norms are perceived. There is nothing natural or congenital in them”.
When asked on Swedish television what he hoped his work would achieve, Perez replied: “I want this book to reach the classrooms for immigrants all around Sweden”.
The book is only the latest in a number of recent initiatives in Sweden to close the discrepancy between long-established sexual norms in the country and the views of many of the thousands of migrants who have made Sweden their new home during the course of the migrant crisis.
Breitbart London reported in April on a new sex brochure released by an LGBT NGO in Sweden which graphically explained concepts of “Sexual Health and Rights in Sweden”, with illustrations of group sex between migrants and Swedes.
Another project, this time by the Swedish Ministry of Youth and Civil Affairs, was released in September specifically tackling the concept of consent, in an effort to drive down sex attacks involving young migrants.

A March report had found that 85 per cent of suspects in gang rape cases in Sweden involved foreign origin attackers.
