One of the most glaring evidences of Clinton corruption that has been revealed by the WikiLeaks releases had to do with a $12 MILLION “donation” that the nation of Morocco “gave” to the Clinton Foundation. The leaked emails detailed that the donation was not so much a “gift” but a pay-for-play bribe from the Moroccan King to the Clinton family.
In worried emails, Hillary Clinton’s closest cronies discussed how to handle the situation because they knew that the donation was contingent upon certain promises made by Mrs. Clinton herself.
“Just to give you some context, the condition upon which the Moroccans agreed to host the meeting was her participation. If hrc was not part if it, meeting was a non-starter. CGI also wasn’t pushing for a meeting in Morocco and it wasn’t their first choice. This was HRC’s idea, our office approached the Moroccans and they 100 percent believe they are doing this at her request. The King has personally committed approx $12 million both for the endowment and to support the meeting. It will break a lot of china to back out now when we had so many opportunities to do it in the past few months. She created this mess and she knows it,” Huma Abedin told Clinton team leaders John Podesta and Robby Mook in one of the leaked emails.
Yes, in exchange for $12 MILLION, Hillary Clinton had promised to hold a high-profile Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) event in Morocco in 2015. She promised to attend, and the Moroccan leader needed a private conversation with the Clintons.
However, the timing of the event couldn’t have been worse. The CGI conference was scheduled to take place just two months after Hillary Clinton had announced her candidacy for President, and her team knew it would look bad for her to be travelling to Morocco to deliver a speech in return for donations. However, they also knew that the Clintons wanted to keep the $12 MILLION donation and so they scrambled to find a solution.
All of this is detailed in the emails, and it proves that the Clinton Foundation was being used to launder money for the Clinton family’s corruption.
Now questions are also being asked about the Clinton Foundation’s ties to Sweden.
The Clinton Foundation raised $26 million from Sweden while the Swedish government was lobbying the State Department to not sanction Swedish businesses working with Iran.
In 2009, diplomatic officials warned that Sweden was ramping up trade with Iran, even while the U.S. was placing heavy sanctions on Iran in an attempt to drive them to the bargaining table and halt their nuclear program…
In November 2011, a few weeks after the State Department released the first Iran sanctions list that did not include Ericsson or any other Swedish companies, Bill Clinton received $750,000 for a speech he gave to Ericsson. The State Department ultimately chose not to sanction any Swedish companies.
Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, pointed out all of these problems months before his emails leaked to the public, and still the Clinton team chose to do nothing… nothing but try to cover up the obviously bad behavior.
In an email with the subject line “Foundation vulnerability points,” Mook outlined areas where the foundation’s work could potentially cause a problem for the campaign. The list includes: “Money from foreign governments,” “Overseas events with foreign leaders or government officials” and “Potential conflicts from overseas-owned organizations (UK and Sweeden) (sic).”…
In another email released Tuesday by Wikileaks, Mook wrote: “We really need to shut Morocco and these paid speeches down.”…
And it’s spreading rapidly across the U.S.

Welcome to Hamtramck, Michigan… Dave
Two Muslim women walk down the streets of Hamtramck, Michigan, where the population, once dominated by the Polish, has been fully transformed. Dearborn is following the same path, with other Michigan cities in various stages of Islamization.
They call it “culture shift.” Places, in America, that no longer look or feel like America.
- Cedar Riverside in Minneapolis fits the bill, with its large Somali community known as “Little Mogadishu,” as does and Hamtramck, Michigan, where the Islamic call to prayer is shouted over loudspeakers and the local city council is now majority-Muslim.
- Parts of Amarillo, Texas, have been flooded with so many Muslim refugees that some ethnic enclaves claim to have elected their own tribal leaders independent of the city government, the city’s mayor recently testified before the Texas Legislature.
- Then there is Dearborn, Michigan, which is now 40 percent Muslim and spilling over into neighboring cities and towns.
Documentary filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch recently drove through Dearborn, guided by a lifelong resident of the city named Brian. What Brian showed him was not just a culture shift but something closer to a shock.
Women walk the streets dressed in long, black burqas that cover all but their eyes. Almost all the signs on storefronts are in Arabic or some other Middle Eastern dialect.
Arab businessmen buy up commercial properties, force out the American tenants and replace them with similar businesses run by Muslims, Brian told Lynch in the documentary. The same phenomenon is now beginning to occur in nearby Sterling Heights, Troy, Oak Park and Clinton Township. In Sterling Heights, residents informed WND this week that Middle Eastern refugees are being housed in a local hotel owned by an Arab-American businessman.
But in Dearborn, the tremendous growth in the Muslim community started more than 20 years ago, fueled by local universities and industry.
“Brian still lives there. He’s not going anywhere,” Lynch told WND in an interview. “It depends on where you go in the city, but certain segments are 100 percent Muslim. Brian said to be prepared. We went through the areas, went shopping at the food mart. You really don’t feel like you are in America anymore.”…
Lynch said he was a regular contributor on Fox News between 2012 and 2015, until he started making hard-hitting documentaries on the U.S. immigration system.
“I’ve never been anywhere in the Middle East, but I’d have to assume that with the exception of there being no desert or sand, that that’s what it’s like,” Lynch said of certain areas in Dearborn. “You have two areas, and it’s almost like the Ford plants separate the two sides, and when you cross to the other side it’s totally radical again. We went to a park where kids were playing after school with the mothers all there, and everybody was dressed in full burqa. It was almost like it was Halloween. I’d never seen anything like it in my life.”
Welcome to Hillary’s America
Dearborn does not exist on an island. Residents of southeastern Michigan have every reason to expect their towns will one day look like Dearborn, Lynch said, thanks to President Obama’s Syrian refugee resettlement program, which Hillary Clinton says she’d like to expand by more than 500 percent…
Philip Hodges Eagle Rising October 26, 2016
When people talk about rigging an election, there are many ways to do that. Probably the easiest and safest way to do it legally is for the media to selectively report. If they focus all the negative coverage on Donald Trump, and focus all the positive or neutral coverage on Hillary Clinton, over time, people will come to accept that Hillary Clinton deserves everyone’s vote.
Just look at all the cases where Donald Trump supporters have been assaulted, battered, or had their property damaged or stolen, for the mere fact that they’re voting for Donald Trump. (See below for a list.) The media wouldn’t touch those stories with a ten-foot pole. They go against the media’s narrative of Trump supporters being hateful and violent.
And the other narrative that the media talk about is the armed, violent “revolution” that Trump and his supporters are going to wage if Hillary wins the election. But if they cover these myriad cases of anti-Trump violence, it contradicts their narrative. The media is afraid to ask the question, “What will Hillary’s supporters do if Trump wins?” It’s not one-sided.
I’ll concede to the media that there are some crazy – perhaps even violent – people voting for Trump, if the media will concede the same thing about Hillary and her supporters. If Hillary wins, there might be some incidents committed by some of Trump’s supporters. But if Trump wins, it would be stupid to think there wouldn’t be many incidents committed by Hillary’s supporters. I think there would actually be more violent incidents committed by angry, sore losers on Hillary’s side, because they’d know that the media wouldn’t pay any attention to them.
You wouldn’t know it by watching the national news media, but there are many Trump supporters across the country who are getting assaulted or are having their property damaged or stolen for the mere fact that they’re voting for Donald Trump. Here’s LifeZette:
On Oct. 15 in Bangor, Maine, vandals spray-painted about 20 parked cars outside a Trump rally. Trump supporter Paul Foster, whose van was hit with white paint, told reporters, “Why can’t they do a peaceful protest instead of painting cars, all of this, to make their statement?”
Around Oct. 3, a couple of Trump supporters were assaulted in Zeitgeist, a San Francisco bar, after they were allegedly refused service for expressing support for Trump, GotNews reports. “The two Trump supporters were attacked, punched, and chased into the street by ‘some thugs’ that a barmaid called out from the back.” Lilian Kim of ABC 7 Bay Area tweeted a photo of the men, in which one was wearing a Trump T-shirt and the other was wearing a “Blue Lives Matter” shirt.
On Sept. 28 in El Cajon, California, an angry mob at a Black Lives Matter protest beat 21-year-old Trump supporter Feras Jabro for wearing a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap. The assault was broadcast live using the smartphone app Periscope…
Victoria Taft Independent Journal October 26, 2016
Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway took incoming fire on behalf of her boss about the candidate’s treatment of reporters covering his campaign.
Wolf Blitzer asked Conway to convince Trump not to ridicule reporters at his rallies, saying that they are “scared” violence will go down: “He shouldn’t be doing that. I mean, can you talk to him? And say to him, ‘Mr. Trump, we only have a few days left, these are hardworking young journalists, they deserve to have some security,’ if you will, because some of those Trump supporters out there, they get pretty nasty with what they’re screaming at these young people.”
Conway said she would tell him. And then, she calmly withdrew her rhetorical scalpel, checked the glinting blade by the bright studio lights and carved out the reasons for Blitzer on why the reporters who cover the candidate deserve ridicule.
She mentioned the WikiLeaks email which showed reporters had sought approval for stories from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta: “…[T]hat’s not journalism, that’s advocacy and, frankly, that’s collusion. So if there’s any spectrum between coziness to collaboration to collusion—any of that would bother us. Many journalists have admitted that Donald Trump has compelled them to suspend objective standards of journalism. I think Americans deserve to have the race covered fairly.”
Blitzer interrupted to mention the scared young reporters who might be harmed by Trump supporters. Conway said: “[T]he only violence I saw at rallies so far was what we saw on video tape by somebody whose cohorts were at the White House 346 times, actively paying people—$1,500 a pop—to be protesters to incite violence at Trump rallies. That’s being done by Democratic operatives. The stink goes all the way up the chain through the DNC and related groups to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. That’s all I saw, but I’ll make a deal with those embeds [cross talk with Wolf]…I’ll excuse some of their tweets, but their twitter feed for some of them—we’ve done an analysis— 85%-90% negative toward Donald Trump.”
Then Conway asked Blitzer a final, rhetorical question about the coverage of the campaign: “I wonder if the way the news is being covered in this election cycle, particularly in the last few weeks, is the way Americans actually see the news and see the race? It’s not clear to me that they’re being told is what they think is important to them is what is being reported to them.”
Conway claimed that what people at Trump rallies are concerned with are jobs, ObamaCare and defeating ISIS, not necessarily what’s being reported…
John Nolte The Daily Wire October 27, 2016
Earlier this week, thanks to the Wall Street Journal, we learned that Democrat Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe steered nearly $500,000 from a political action committee to Dr. Jill McCabe, a Democrat candidate for Virginia state senate — who just happens to be the wife of Andrew McCabe, who just happens to be the deputy director of the FBI, who just happened to oversee what we now know was a completely whitewashed and partisan investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server.
For the very few of you who might not know this, McAuliffe is the Clintons’ Renfeld. For three decades he has faithfully served and danced along every legal edge imaginable to act as their top fundraiser, their chief fixer, and all around errand boy. McAuliffe’s ties to the Clintons are such that many believe his decision to run for governor of Virginia had less to do with his own ambitions and more to do with making an early chess move to ensure Hillary won that swing state’s crucial electoral votes in 2016.
And yet, despite this common knowledge, when the news broke of McAuliffe’s timely (see the timeline below) recruitment of and massive donations to McCabe, what was CNN anchor Jake Tapper’s take on the issue? Of course, like the leftwing alchemist he is, Tapper gave Hillary the dumbest, most pathetic and sycophantic benefit of the doubt possible in order to turn the news into an attack on — you guessed it — Donald Trump.
An entire segment on Tapper’s show was devoted to blasting Trump for stating the obvious — for connecting dots that can only result in one conclusion — that of course Hillary Clinton knew all about this. “Trump, with no evidence,” Tapper sanctimoniously followed up Twitter, “accuses Clinton of knowing about ‘shocking’ donation.”
Yeah, no evidence other than a thirty-year political partnership, one of the tightest and sleaziest in all of political history. Are we supposed to believe that without telling the Clintons, McAuliffe would make them look this compromised? Are we supposed to believe McAuliffe would risk dropping Hillary into the grease of a potential pay-for-play scandal without her knowledge? Well, according to Tapper we are.
If that’s not enough for you, over at Hot Air, Larry O’Connor breaks down the timeline, which inadvertently reveals just how willfully ignorant Tapper is willing to be…
‘Danney cannot be silenced any longer’
More media manipulation to favor the Clinton campaign…
All it does is advocate a claim that not everyone believes or wants to hear…
…just like a million other videos on YouTube…
If Google-owed YouTube hadn’t been exposed…
…and shamed into reopening Williams’ account…
…they would have shut him down for good… Dave
Jerome R. Corsi World Net Daily 10/27/2016
NEW YORK –YouTube on Wednesday terminated the account of Danney Williams, the 30-year-old man who has claimed since the 1990s to be the black son of former President Bill Clinton. But YouTube suddenly reversed its decision on Thursday amid public outcry and reinstated the account in the early morning hours, posting a notice that said only: “After a review of your account, we have confirmed that your YouTube account is not in violation of our Terms of Service. As such, we have unsuspended your account.”
The YouTube decision to terminate Williams’ account blocked the nine-minute feature “BANISHED – The Untold Story of Danney Williams,” which had received 1.2 million views since Williams posted it last week. Produced by filmmaker Joel Gilbert, it drew nearly 100,000 views per day and more than 1,000 viewer comments, with the overwhelming majority expressing support for Williams and outrage at the Clintons for not being willing to allow a DNA test to determine paternity.
“My YouTube account has been deleted, but the same video appears in 50 other places on YouTube alone,” Williams said on his Facebook page after being notified of YouTube’s decision to suspend the account. “[YouTube] can’t handle the truth! Please share #BillClintonSon.”
Twitter also continued to allow Williams to post the “Banished” video on Danney Williams’ page, but the Twitter link to YouTube displayed the message: “This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated. Sorry about that.”
Attempt to silence Danney Williams?
Gilbert told WND on Wednesday he helped Williams file an online appeal form on YouTube asking why the account was suspended and demanding it be immediately reinstated. “The behavior of YouTube/Google in suspending Danney’s account is outrageous! There have been absolutely zero violations of any kind let alone a severe one of any YouTube terms or guidelines,” Gilbert said…
Clinton headlined fundraiser for $500,000 donation to wife of agency boss
Bob Unruh World Net Daily October 27, 2016
The WikiLeaks revelation that the wife of the FBI official who supervised the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s off-the-books email server got a major campaign cash infusion from one of Clinton’s friends just took a stunning new turn.
The London Daily Mail is reporting Hillary Clinton had raised funds for the political action committee that steered the contributions to the unsuccessful campaign of Democrat Jill McCabe.
McCabe’s husband, Andrew McCabe, was promoted to FBI deputy director and supervised the investigation of Clinton not long after Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who through his PAC Common Good VA, contributed a total of $675,000 to Jill McCabe’s longshot bid for a congressional seat.
The Daily Mail reported Hillary Clinton headlined a major fundraiser for McAuliffe’s PAC shortly before the group steered nearly $500,000 to Jill McCabe.
Critics are charging that the fundraising effort and McAuliffe’s PAC payments to Jill McCabe cast doubt on the FBI investigation, which culminated with Director James Comey announcing the agency would not refer charges to the Justice Department despite evidence of mishandling of classified information.
The Daily Mail reported that according to election records, Common Good VA was the largest single donor to Jill McCabe’s campaign, giving her $467,000 between June and October 2015.
Her campaign also received an additional $207,788 from the Democratic Party of Virginia, a group over which McAuliffe has significant control.
Clinton’s ties to Common Good VA go beyond her relationship with McAuliffe, the Daily Mail noted. In June 2015, she headlined a key fundraiser for the group, which reportedly brought in over $1 million for the PAC and the Democratic Party of Virginia.
The report quoted Ken Boehm, chief of the National Legal and Policy Center, who had concerns. “The fact that Hillary Clinton’s inner circle was raising substantial funds for Gov. McAuliffe’s PAC and this same PAC gave close to a half-million dollars to the campaign of the wife of the senior FBI official involved in the Clinton investigation sure looks like a payoff – a major payoff,” he said.
It previously looked like “serious corruption,” he pointed out. Now, it’s “much worse.”…
Gary Bauer American Values October 27, 2016
There are several stories making headlines today, once again highlighting the tremendous corruption and scandals that surround the Clintons.
- Responding to ethical concerns raised during an internal audit, top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band wrote a 13-page memo defending his actions with statements like this: “We have dedicated ourselves to helping the President [Bill Clinton] secure and engage in for-profit activities.”
In other words, his “defense” was to remind the Clintons how much money he was making for them. And Band was very productive. According to the Washington Post, Band bragged about raising “in excess of $8 million for the foundation and $3 million in paid speaking fees for Bill Clinton.” Band also wrote that he had “secured contracts for the former president that would pay out $66 million” over nine years.
So the Clintons were getting rich shaking down American corporations for cash while these companies shipped your jobs overseas.
- Remember the story about Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s PAC directing big money to a Democrat candidate who was married to a top FBI official investigating Hillary Clinton? It turns out that Hillary Clinton was directly involved in raising money for McAuliffe’s PAC.
- We are also learning that Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, had multiple dinners with top officials at the Department of Justice. One of those officials was the lawyer who kept Podesta “out of jail” for his involvement in several Clinton White House scandals. Were they simply reminiscing about old times or plotting new schemes?…
Hillary’s gang is picking on the wrong scapegoat: Putin…
This is a sure sign of desperation…
They have their narrative, but that is all they have…
The gang has presented no facts to support the claim that Russia is behind the leaks…
…nor can they support their claim that the emails were doctored…
In fact, the opposite is true… Dave
Jason Howerton Independent Journal October 26, 2016
Fox News host Megyn Kelly grew exasperated on the air Wednesday night when one of her Hillary Clinton-supporting guests repeatedly refused to discuss the hacked John Podesta emails released by WikiLeaks.
At one point, Kelly got so fed up that she actually covered her face with her notes and ended the segment.
Every single time Kelly attempted to get Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman to address the WikiLeaks emails, he changed the subject to Russia and claimed the emails might be fake.
“They haven’t denied it,” Kelly correctly pointed out.
It wasn’t long before Zimmerman was once again repeating his prepared talking points: “Russia is, in fact, undermining our democracy, trying to sabotage our election and we’re not talking about that, that Donald Trump is embracing Vladimir Putin…”
A frustrated Kelly interrupted, “You’ve said that like five times, can you just talk about the emails? Are you going to defend her or not?”…
Imagine that… Hillary’s gang invented the whole Miss Universe “scandal”…
…out of thin air…
Who’da thunk it?
Putin, for one…
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (maker of the infamous YouTube video) for another… Dave
Jerry Johnson Constitution.com October 27, 2016
In the words of the Homicide Hunter Joe Kenda, “Well, my, my, my!” It would appear the Clinton Campaign had been scoping out and planning to misquote Donald Trump’s exchange with the disgraced former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, for almost a year. The truth of the hit job on Trump came as a new batch of emails from John Podesta, Campaign chair for Hillary Clinton, were made public.
But before we get into the substance, I encourage you to watch the video below in its entirety. This video is from the supposed press conference in which Donald Trump “forced” Alicia Machado to work out in front of the media which she now claims was a horrible and degrading experience.
But contrary to Machado, the video shows something completely different. I wonder how she would have felt if she had her title stripped away which was the pageants right under the contract?
During the first debate, Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, invoked edited comments from that 1997 press conference trying to paint Donald Trump as a monster. Clinton said, and I quote, “And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest…He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them. And he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name.”
Trump responded with “Where did you find this?”
FoxNews writes, “The answer is: in a 157-page opposition research file that Clinton’s campaign had been using since at least Dec. 19, 2015, the day research director Tony Carrk emailed it…to Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta. Podesta’s emails were subsequently hacked and more than 25,000 of them have been released so far by anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.” — FoxNews.com
“In a section on Page 31 titled “Trump Has Devalued And Demeaned Women Repeatedly Throughout His Career,” Trump’s comments to “This Morning” in 1997 are transcribed under the heading “Trump On Miss Universe Pageant Winner.” — ibid.
According to the Podesta file, Trump says “She weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds, and she went up to 160 or 170…So this is somebody that likes to eat.”
But if you watch the video in its entirety, you know that there is more to the story. And the alleged comments “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” do not appear. Trump said, and from this video, it appears to be true, “I [Trump] saved her job.” I guess the old adage is true, “No good deed goes unpunished!”
But the DNC, in its typical dishonest, twisted, win at all cost behavior took one man’s attempt to help and turned it into a gotcha moment…
This email is tantamount to an open admission of guilt…
Who is the person who should be “drawn and quartered”???
It is Hillary herself… She is the one who gave herself permission…
No one liked the way her system was set up… the only one who wanted it was her… Dave
Michael Bastasch The Daily Caller 10/27/2016
A top confidant to Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta suggested the person who told the former secretary of state she could use a private email should be “drawn and quartered,” according to a leaked email chain.
“Do we actually know who told Hillary she could use a private email?” Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, asked Podesta in a July 2015 email. The email was one of thousands released by WikiLeaks from Podesta’s hacked Gmail account.
“And has that person been drawn and quartered?” Tanden added. “Like whole thing is fucking insane.”
Clinton has said former Secretary of State Colin Powell suggested she use a private email, like he did, while serving as the U.S.’s top diplomat. Clinton also said she used a private email server for “convenience” and it was done in accordance with State Department guidelines. Though, she did say it was a “mistake” for her to use a private server.
Powell, however, criticized Clinton for trying to bring him into the email issue.
“Sad thing,” Powell wrote to a friend in a hacked email. “HRC could have killed this two years ago by merely telling everyone honestly what she had done and not tie me to it.”
“I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hampton’s [sic] party to get their attention. She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields,” Powell wrote, adding he tried to meet with Clinton aide Cheryl Mills to settle the issue…
Tim Brown Eagle Rising October 26, 2016
After exposing Democrat voter fraud and election rigging on video, including claims that Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and DNC Chair Donna Brazile were personally involved, James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has decided to file suit against the DNC and Clinton.
According to the complaint filed by O’Keefe to the Federal Election Commission, he calls the actions of the DNC, which his team of undercover journalists uncovered, a “criminal conspiracy” and says that it should trigger criminal penalties under the law:
This criminal conspiracy involves the knowing and willful creation of coordinated expenditures from prohibited corporate sources. As is detailed numerous times in the Veritas transcript, attached as EXHIBIT A, the supposedly independent speech and actions of third-party groups were directed, controlled, or puppeteered by HFA or the DNC. Indeed, the record establishes not just simple violations of the FECA’s coordination provisions, but ongoing knowing and willful evasion of federal election law requirements through a complicated scheme. Because this conspiracy involves large numbers of employees, heightened travel, production, and distribution costs and because of the nationwide scale of the operation, upon information and belief, this triggers criminal penalties under 52 U.S.C. § 30109(d)(1)(A)(i).
By failing to abide by the law, these respondents misled the public about the true identity of speakers and funding sources for political protests and advocacy campaigns. This sort of evasion undermines the public’s trust in the electoral process and allows elite political operatives to operate above the law.
O’Keefe’s evidence is not just the statements of Robert Creamer in his videos, but also several emails with statements that indicate collusion to engage in illegal activities.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart, O’Keefe said, “As the chairman of Project Veritas, our work is financially independent and beholden to nobody. Our work is funded by thousands of contributors, small, medium, and large. What I have learned about our media – and it’s frightening – is that almost everyone is compromised. Media companies are beholden to stockholders and I have sources that I am trying to get to go on the record to explain that these companies are afraid of reporting this story for fear of political retaliation. If the public knew the truth, I think it would change everything about American politics.”…
A federal scheme to establish counseling teams to engage with youths at risk of radicalization was dropped after objections from Muslim groups.
Translation: A program design to stop Muslim extremism…
…was itself stopped because it offended Muslim extremists…
Thanks, Obama! Dave
Elliot Friedland The Clarion Project Tue, October 25, 2016
An FBI-led program to establish “shared responsibility committees” to intervene at an early stage to prevent or counteract radicalization was canceled, according to USA Today. The committees would have included mental health workers, clergy and counselors in local communities.
Several pilot schemes were reportedly set up in New Jersey and several selected cities to provide support and rehabilitation for those at risk. The committees would provide psychiatric care, help deal with family or anger issues and other considerations not requiring a law-enforcement response.
Yet Muslim civil society leaders pushed back against the scheme, saying it risked discrediting the community leaders involved, thus alienating them from the very people they would need to talk to for the scheme to work.
“So many concerns were raised about how this would be structured and how would this play out and what would this look like,” Maya Berry, executive director of the Arab American Institute told media. “The answers were not very good.”
Similar concerns about government involvement in civilian counter-extremism efforts were raised in other places, such as the UK. There the government’s “Prevent” strategy has been strongly criticized over fears it turns clergy into spies against their own community.
In December 2015, a coalition of imams from East London accused the government’s strategy of “spying on our young people” and “increasing division and to a breakdown of trust in schools and colleges.”
Yet some of those who objected to the program did so because they objected to the involvement of counter-extremism organization the Quilliam Foundation, which is run by former extremists who fight against the ideology they once held.
Some of those who dislike Quilliam, such as MEND have extremist links themselves…
Ann Corcoran Refugee Resettlement Watch October 27, 2016
A resolution heard around the world! This isn’t just about Michigan—as Michigan goes so goes America!
Here is how the story in the UK Daily Mail described what happened. I know many of you already do know because you have been sending me versions of the story from many news outlets, but for those who don’t yet know:
A Michigan town has voted to ban Syrian refugees from living there, because they believe the vetting process is not good enough. The Waterford Township Board of Trustees passed a resolution against allowing refugees from the war torn country to settle in the area, on Monday night. The vote was specifically against a federal resettlement program for the refugees. It passed with a 7-0 vote.
The result is a surprising one given that the town in North America with the highest proportion of Arab-Americans lies just 30 miles to the south. Dearborn has more than 40,000 Middle Eastern immigrants who are proud to call the city home.
The Daily Mail said this in its short blips about the story and it made me laugh!
The towns ruling is worthless as control over Syrian refugees is done so federally and not at a local level.
Of course we know the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program is being foisted secretively on local communities and local governments from the United Nations and the government in Washington, DC, but what these brave local elected officials did on Monday night is far from “worthless.”
Because by trying to save their own town in Oakland County, Michigan, people all over the world are hearing about it as the media, including the UK Daily Mail, has been running stories about it all week and thus educating more and more Americans to what is happening to Michigan could be happening to your states too (and is happening to many, it is just that some are further down the pipeline of demographic change than others!).
Michael Patrick Leahy of Breitbart picked up the story and it was featured on Drudge on Tuesday. And, here is the New York Daily News, be sure to watch the video clip. Here is the Oakland Press about the international attention the resolution has received. And, includes this important information about a possible next step: “Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson has threatened a lawsuit against the federal government that would seek an injunction to halt any more refugees from locating here. Patterson says the refugees are not properly screened for medical illnesses and the Refugee Act of 1980 is not being followed. The act requires the federal government to update local officials at regular intervals about refugees locating in the area. The county Board of Commissioners approved a resolution supporting Patterson.”
Worthless? Not by a long shot!…
And learn why the “moderate/radical” Muslim dichotomy is a farce.
Raymond Ibrahim Front Page Magazine August 24, 2016
There’s nothing like knowing Arabic—that is, being privy to the Muslim world’s internal conversations on a daily basis—to disabuse oneself of the supposed differences between so-called “moderate” and “radical” Muslims.
Consider the case of Egypt’s Dr. Ahmed al-Tayeb. Hardly one to be dismissed as a fanatic who is ignorant of the true tenets of Islam, Tayeb’s credentials and career are impressive: he holds a Ph. D in Islamic philosophy from the Paris-Sorbonne University; formerly served as Grand Imam of Egypt, meaning he was the supreme interpreter of Islamic law; formerly served for seven years as president of Al-Azhar University, considered the world’s leading institution of Islamic learning, and is currently its Grand Imam. A 2013 survey named Tayeb the “most influential Muslim in the world.”
He is also regularly described by Western media and academia as a “moderate.” Georgetown University presents him as “a strong proponent of interfaith dialogue.” According to The National, “He is considered to be one of the most moderate and enlightened Sunni clerics in Egypt.” In February 2015, the Wall Street Journal praised him for making “one of the most sweeping calls yet for educational reform in the Muslim world to combat the escalation of extremist violence.”
Most recently he was invited to the Vatican and warmly embraced by Pope Francis. Al Azhar had angrily cut off all ties with the Vatican five years earlier when, in the words of U.S. News, former Pope Benedict “had demanded greater protection for Christians in Egypt after a New Year’s bombing on a Coptic Christian church in Alexandria killed 21 people. Since then, Islamic attacks on Christians in the region have only increased.”
Pope Francis referenced his meeting with Tayeb as proof that Muslims are peaceful: “I had a long conversation with the imam, the Grand Imam of the Al-Azhar University, and I know how they think. They [Muslims] seek peace, encounter.”
How does one reconcile Tayeb’s benevolent image in the West with his reality in Egypt? For instance, all throughout the month of Ramadan last June, Tayeb appeared on Egyptian TV explaining all things Islamic—often in ways that do not suggest that Islam seeks “peace, encounter.”
During one episode, he reaffirmed a phrase that is almost exclusively associated with radicals: in Arabic, al-din wa’l-dawla, meaning “the religion and the polity”—a phrase that holds Islam to be both a religion and a body of rules governing society and state.
He did so in the context of discussing the efforts of Dr. Ali Abdel Raziq, a true reformer and former professor at Al Azhar who wrote a popular but controversial book in 1925, one year after the abolition of the Ottoman caliphate. Titled, in translation, Islam and the Roots of Governance, Raziq argued against the idea of resurrecting the caliphate, saying that Islam is a personal religion that should no longer be mixed with politics or governance.
Raziq was vehemently criticized by many clerics and even fired from Al Azhar. Concluded Tayeb, with assent: “Al Azhar’s position was to reject his position, saying he forfeited his credentials and his creed. A great many ulema—in and out of Egypt and in Al Azhar—rejected his work and its claim, that Islam is a religion but not a polity. Instead, they reaffirmed that Islam is both a religion and a polity [literally, al-din wa’l-dawla].”
The problem with the idea that Islam must govern the whole of society should be obvious: Sharia, or Islamic law, which is what every Muslim including Tayeb refer to when they say that Islam is a polity, is fundamentally at odds with modern notions of human rights and, due to its supremacist and “anti-infidel” aspects, the source of conflict between Muslims and non-Muslims the world over…
In yet another display of blatant anti-Semitism, UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee this time voted in favor of a resolution denying the millennia-old Jewish connection to Jerusalem including the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.
Aryeh Savir World Israel News October 26, 2016
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on Wednesday adopted another resolution denying the Jewish bond to Jerusalem, and specifically the Temple Mount and the Kotel, the Western Wall.
In a vote cast by secret ballot at the World Heritage Committee in Paris, 10 countries voted in favor of the motion, while two countries voted against and eight abstained. Jamaica was absent from the 21-country body.
The conservation report on the status of the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls, proposed by Lebanon, Kuwait and Tunisia, accuses Israel of various violations and refers to the Temple Mount only by its Muslim names, the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Al-Haram Al-Sharif, and defined it singularly as “a Muslim holy site of worship,” while failing to mention the importance of Jerusalem to the three monotheistic religions.
The resolution calls for a return to the “historic status quo” on the Temple Mount, which it sees as favoring Muslims.
“This is yet another absurd resolution against the State of Israel, the Jewish people and historical truth,” Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO Carmel Shama-Hacohen charged after the vote.
Displaying a trash basket with the word “history” on it, Shama-Hacohen placed the resolution in the bin and said that this motion would eventually join other such anti-Israel resolutions adopted by the UN that were subsequently reversed or discarded.
Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon condemned the resolution, pointing to the ludicrousness of the resolution. “The absurdity continues, and UNESCO has adopted yet another ridiculous decision that is completely disconnected from reality,” said Danon.
“UNESCO embarrassed itself by marching to the tune of the Palestinian pipers. All attempts to deny our heritage, distort history and disconnect the Jewish people from our capital and our homeland, are doomed to fail,” Danon added.
This vote follows a similar controversial one from last week which also denied that Jerusalem was Jewish or Christian, and referred to it only by its Islamic names, in blatant disregard of history, archaeology and plain common sense…
This report is a glimpse into a much broader issue…
Islamists see history as little more than a tool for advancing Islam…
This is why they are so much more focused on history than the West…
It holds the narrative they use to justify aggression towards others…
The Islamist’s view of history is that it is a narrative to legitimize/glorify Islam…
…and dismiss/denigrate all other religions and civilizations…
Think America is immune? Think again…
Islamists are already promoting a narrative…
They claim, against all evidence to the contrary…
…thus making America into Muslim land…
…which evil Europeans stole from them…
…Islamists are setting up a narrative…
…to justify “reclaiming” Muslim America… Dave

Recently, UNESCO blatantly denied any Jewish rights or links to Temple Mount (see my previous iPatriot article on this). The Marxist UN group rejected historical and Biblical facts, boldly declaring that only Muslims have the right to the Mount. Not because of truth, but because Muslims say so. In this they acted like children, who put hands over their eyes, and think whatever is before them will just disappear!
But, life isn’t like that. ‘Palestine’ might WANT Jews to disappear, but it doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Not only is their statement, through UNESCO, stupid and ignorant, but it is, above all else, another attempt to marginalise Israel before the world. A jihad by rewriting of history.
However, this time the PA raised anger and disbelief around the world. Italy abstained from the last vote by UNESCO, calling the decision absurd. Two other UNESCO member countries (Mexico and Brazil) say they regretted voting in favour of the decision and will abstain the next time.
Another vote is set to occur very soon, and the PA is demanding full cooperation from all 21 members, and sent letters on Monday asking each to ‘clarify their position’. The PA and Jordan warned that if they did not cooperate, they would re-submit their proposal to UNESCO with even stronger anti-Israel sentiments. So, the case rests NOT on history or facts, but on Muslim demands.
Israeli ambassador to UNESCO, Carmel Shama-Hacohen, added her own warning, that if all the members do not cooperate with the PA and Jordan, they will “burn the house down” with violent anti-Jewish rhetoric. Shama-Hacohen called the PA move “diplomatic jihad against the Jewish people”. (Jerusalem Post).
Interestingly, UNESCO’s director-general, Irina Bokova, denounced the last decision and referred to the Western Wall (renamed in favour of Islam) as “the holiest site in Judaism”. So much for Jews having no links to the old city! She went farther: “To deny, conceal or erase any of the Jewish, Christian or Muslim traditions undermines the integrity of the site”.
Rightly, Jewish officials are now attempting to get the committee to change its mind after global anger over its absurd decision, saying that it was an “insult to the Bible” as well as to history and archaeology. But, of course, none of this matters to Islam, which is anti-intellectual and anti-anything not Islamic, no matter how ridiculous is the claim. Despite the unreality of the previous vote, a sub-group within UNESCO is now ready to call for a repeat vote, stating the site is for Muslims only.
This is incredible, but it is indicative of the fascism of Islam, which overrides every other consideration – Islam or nothing. Truth is irrelevant. So is history and archaeology. These all show how backward Islam really is…
Given US universities’ history of welcoming Islamist funding and operatives, stopping this before it further metastasizes is imperative.
Great… now the sectarian war between Sunnis and Shiites will be fought in American academia… Dave
Stephen Schwartz The Clarion Project Thu, October 27, 2016
The American academy, which has revealed itself to be markedly susceptible to the intrigues of the Saudi-based radical Wahhabi sect and the Muslim Brotherhood, now faces the challenge of an Iranian radical presence.
Since 2014, admission of Iranian students to U.S. colleges has been permitted by the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. Iran has yet to flood the U.S. with its own professors.
Nevertheless, there are indications that an Iranian wave may soon hit the American academic community. A network of apologists for the Iranian clerical regime already exists within the Middle East studies departments of American educational institutions.
How much will this attitude grow in light of the Obama administration’s turn toward Tehran?
Three recent examples of IranianEbrahim Mohseni (L) and Seyed Mohammad Marandiideological functionaries penetrating U.S. universities stand out: Ebrahim Mohseni, Seyed Mohammad Marandi (by long-distance control from Iran) and Ali Akbar Alikhani.
Ebrahim Mohseni is a research scholar at the University of Maryland (UM)’s Center for International and Security Studies, while simultaneously serving as a senior analyst at the University of Tehran’s Center for Public Opinion Research (CPOR) and a lecturer in the University’s Faculty of World Studies (FWS). He has a masters of public policy and a graduate certificate in intelligence analysis from UM.
That an obvious – as will be seen – Iranian regime advocate should have been awarded a graduate certificate in intelligence analysis by a major U.S. educational institution is startling, and so are Mohseni’s affiliations with the CPOR and the FWS…
Exclusive: Clinton’s Syria plan would ignite WWIII -Trump
Steve Holland Reuters October 26, 2016
DORAL, Fla. – U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Democrat Hillary Clinton’s plan for Syria would “lead to World War Three,” because of the potential for conflict with military forces from nuclear-armed Russia.
In an interview focused largely on foreign policy, Trump said defeating Islamic State is a higher priority than persuading Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, playing down a long-held goal of U.S. policy. Trump questioned how Clinton would negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin after demonizing him; blamed President Barack Obama for a downturn in U.S. relations with the Philippines under its new president, Rodrigo Duterte; bemoaned a lack of Republican unity behind his candidacy, and said he would easily win the election if the party leaders would support him.
“If we had party unity, we couldn’t lose this election to Hillary Clinton,” he said.
On Syria’s civil war, Trump said Clinton could drag the United States into a world war with a more aggressive posture toward resolving the conflict.
Clinton has called for the establishment of a no-fly zone and “safe zones” on the ground to protect non-combatants. Some analysts fear that protecting those zones could bring the United States into direct conflict with Russian fighter jets.
“What we should do is focus on ISIS. We should not be focusing on Syria,” said Trump as he dined on fried eggs and sausage at his Trump National Doral golf resort. “You’re going to end up in World War Three over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton. You’re not fighting Syria any more, you’re fighting Syria, Russia and Iran, all right? Russia is a nuclear country, but a country where the nukes work as opposed to other countries that talk,”…
Fear mounts that the US does not understand the rebels’ political agenda to establish a fundamentalist Islamist state in post-war Syria.
As we at Islam Update have been saying for many years…
There is no good side in this war with whom we can ally…
Our smartest move would be to quarantine the entire area in every way…
…with the only people allowed out being the non-Muslims we rescue…
Instead, Obama has us siding with Shiite Iran against ISIS in Iraq…
…and siding with Sunni Islamists who sometimes ally with ISIS against Assad in Syria…
If victory were achieved on both fronts…
…our Iranian “allies” would soon be at war with our Sunni Islamist “allies”…
…which are both in the process of eliminating Christianity from Iraq and Syria… Dave

A number of Catholic leaders in Syria issued a statement pleading with the U.S. and other Western governments to stop supporting rebel groups.
Published in Catholic World Report, the statement, attributed to Archbishop Jean Clement, the Melike Catholic leader in Aleppo, read: “Please help us to pull our country back from the abyss of the fundamentalist regime in which they are trying to immerse us.
“Just stop selling arms to the terrorists,” begged Father Mtanios Haddad, a Melkite now serving in Rome. Haddad said three crucial actions are needed:
- Stopping the flow of arms from the U.S. to the terrorists
- Stopping the flow of money from Saudi Arabia which funds the terrorists
- Closing the border with Turkey through which the terrorists reach Syria.
The church leaders believe that the U.S. has been given an inaccurate understanding of the dynamics in Syria. “I think that those who control the information in the West have a political agenda,” said Chaldean Catholic Bishop Antoine Audo of Aleppo.
Clement added the possibility that the Syria could end up being a fundamentalist Muslim state is a nightmare to the next generation. “This is why we turn to our brethren in the West and pray that they may help us prevent this from happening.”…

MOSUL, IRAQ — As prayers were offered in Syriac in front of the altar of the trashed church of Mart Shmoni in the recently freed town of Bartella, more homes where Christians used to live in Iraq’s north-eastern Nineveh Plain were being claimed back from the Islamic State (IS), according to World Watch Monitor (www.worldwatchmonitor.org)
Qaraqosh, Iraq’s largest Christian town, has been regained by Iraqi forces, sources close to the area, have told World Watch Monitor. Also known by its Syriac name, Baghdeda was home to 50,000-60,000 people (95 percent Christian) before IS invaded it in 2014.
The troops now control the city center and St. Mary’s Al-Tahira Syriac Catholic Church, the biggest church in the town, and Karamles, another town of significant Christian presence halfway between Bartella and Baghdeda, east of Mosul, may soon be fully in Iraqi hands. Iraqis in the area have been warned IS possibly put mines in their homes.
Meanwhile, Bashiqa, another Nineveh town whose name testifies to its Assyrian roots, remains under siege, while Kurdish Peshmerga forces have regained more of the surrounding area, World Watch Monitor said. The agency also reports that fighting continues for other towns where Christians were once a majority, including Telkeif, as anti-IS forces continue their push for Iraq’s second-largest city of Mosul, 10km away.
Telkeif was almost entirely a Christian town before it was Arabized and the majority of its ancient Chaldeans migrated to the Detroit area, in the US – a situation replicated in varying degrees across areas and towns in Iraq and the wider Middle East. World Watch Monitor stated: “But despite images of liberating Iraqi militias ringing bells or cleaning statues of the Virgin on behalf of Nineveh’s displaced Christians, the Plain’s natives are not making a comeback just yet.”
The agency explained that long before the hot summer of 2014, when IS strove to wipe out every remaining Christian vestige from those ancient lands, Iraqi Christians have seen the country they called home turning increasingly more hostile towards them. The agency says Iraq’s Christian presence has been rapidly declining in recent decades. In the early 1990s, one and a half million Christians reportedly lived in the country. Today, at most 250,000 are thought to still be living there, half of them internally displaced.
A report presented in October by Christian charity Open Doors UK says radical groups have been working for the religious cleansing of Iraq, with the aim of making the country “purely Islamic.”…
ISIS settles the debate—but will Western leaders still disseminate lies?
Raymond Ibrahim Front Page Magazine August 19, 2016
An old (and tiresome) debate appears to have been settled by those best positioned to settle it. According to Andrew Gripp, a former political science professor: “Since 9/11, one of the defining fault lines in American and Western politics has concerned whether jihadist groups such as al-Qaeda and ISIS are motivated by their religion or by politics – or more specifically, by grievances against Western foreign policy. Some insist that Islamic doctrine is the basis of their violence, while others insist that such groups are not truly Islamic, but are instead using the guise of religion to lash out against Western influence and intervention.”
After indicating how “jihadist groups’ political behavior is consistently traceable to their beliefs about what the Quran, hadith, and respected commentaries say they have a divine injunction to do,” Gripp writes: “For years, however, making this case has been a challenge. This is in part because al-Qaeda was intentionally speaking to both sides in this debate. As the scholar Raymond Ibrahim demonstrates in The Al Qaeda Reader, the terrorist group would regularly frame its grievances in political terms when broadcasting its message to the West (so as to insinuate that once the West withdrew, peace would come). Yet when speaking to the Muslim world, the group would make highly sophisticated religious arguments, explaining why its actions, however reprehensible on their face, were in fact justified by a close reading of the holy texts.”
This was indeed the main reason I sought to translate and publish al-Qaeda’s internal communiques to fellow Muslims side-by-side with al-Qaeda’s communiques to the West: to show the stark differences in tone and purpose. As I wrote in the book’s preface ten years ago: “This volume of translations [The Al Qaeda Reader], taken as a whole, proves once and for all that, despite the propaganda of al-Qaeda and its sympathizers, radical Islam’s war with the West is not finite and limited to political grievances—real or imagined—but is existential, transcending time and space and deeply rooted in faith.”
Now, however, the world need not rely on my translations and can get it straight from the horse’s mouth: In a recent article titled “Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You,” the Islamic State gives six reasons. Reason number one says it all: “We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers; you reject the oneness of Allah – whether you realize it or not – by making partners for Him in worship, you blaspheme against Him, claiming that He has a son [Christ], you fabricate lies against His prophets and messengers, and you indulge in all manner of devilish practices. It is for this reason that we were commanded to openly declare our hatred for you and our enmity towards you. “There has already been for you an excellent example in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people, ‘Indeed, we are disassociated from you and from whatever you worship other than Allah. We have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred forever until you believe in Allah alone’” (Al-Mumtahanah 4 [i.e., Koran 60:4]). Furthermore, just as your disbelief is the primary reason we hate you, your disbelief is the primary reason we fight you, as we have been commanded to fight the disbelievers until they submit to the authority of Islam, either by becoming Muslims, or by paying jizyah – for those afforded this option [“People of the Book”] – and living in humiliation under the rule of the Muslims [per Koran 9:29].”…

ISIS terrorists have executed nine of their fellow Jihadis that attempted to flee the battle of Mosul by throwing them in burning oil trenches. Scores of these flaming trenches have been created to impede the progress of approaching Iraqi and Kurdish troops as they advance on the terrorist stronghold.
The Jihadis had their hands and feet tied together before being thrown in the inferno while still alive. Al Sumaria Newshas confirmed the executions took place stating:
“ISIS terrorist gangs executed nine of its members for fleeing the battle against the security forces in Mosul, by throwing them in trenches containing a burning oil, after tying their hands and legs,”
A U.S.-led coalition of nearly 30,000 Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), Kurdish Peshmerga troops, Sunni tribesmen, and Shiite militiamen are approaching on the city of Mosul and the 6,000 ISIS fighters that are currently defending it. They have already captured several of the smaller towns and villages that surround the city.
The remaining ISIS fighters are expected to grow more erratic and dangerous as the coalition approaches. Amnesty International, a human rights group, has warned that the fighters are likely to carry out similar atrocities against civilians as they grow more desperate.
Reuters reports that 90 Islamic State-held villages and towns around Mosul have been retaken and that approaching forces are within 20 miles of the city in the south…
New interviews aim to try to gain some understanding as to why ISIS members view women as holding a lower status.
“Try to gain some understanding”??? It’s easy!
To anyone who has read the Quran and hadiths…
…the kinds of acts we see ISIS engage in come straight out of their pages…
As much as most of the world wants to deny it…
…ISIS is living as faithfully to Muhammad’s 7th century Islam as they can…
…given that most the world is living in the 21st century… Dave

By now it probably comes as no surprise that Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) members are not interested in treating women who are outside their particular “faith” as fellow humans, let alone equals. But this kind of treatment does not end there. It is also true of the female members of ISIS. Recent interviews conducted by journalist Sulome Anderson shed light on just how exactly ISIS members view women and what the experience is like of those women who are captured by them.
An ISIS member interviewed by Anderson who currently sits in prison in Kirkuk, Iraq said of his wife, “My wife completely covered her body and face and never left the house without me…She is forbidden from going anywhere without me.”
He told Anderson that his wife was supposed to meet him in Kirkuk, where he was meant to join a sleeper cell, but he was arrested. Now, having been incarcerated for more than four months, she is likely married to someone else – something that is allowed by Islamic law (sharia) as interpreted by ISIS.
But he doesn’t stop there. When asked how his wife may feel about this, he stated, “[My wife] is just a woman, like every other woman…Women exist to be married and have children. In jihad, feelings do not matter. Women survive; they do not live.”
After pondering why these men of ISIS hold such misogynistic views, Anderson arrives at the conclusion that “the Islamic State has perfected a process of dehumanization that allows its members to indulge their misogyny, aggressive sexual tendencies, and need for power — all in the name of Islam.”
In other words, something about the philosophy created by ISIS brainwashes members into seeing women as subhuman. It is an organization that operates under the guise of religion and where its teachings of violence and misogyny gain great strength.
In subsequent interviews, female Yazidi victims recounted their horrible experiences. One woman, merely 23 years of age and from a large, wealthy family, first tells of her sister, only 16 years of age. “They married her to seven men. She is still in Syria … I saw a man rape four women in a row. I saw them rip a baby from his mother’s breast as he was drinking milk. One man would marry me, then one of his friends would see me and like me, so he would marry me. I was sold to five men…

In Islam, women are commodities, the possessions of men. If men “fear disobedience” from them, they are to be beaten. This creates a culture of violence and fear, and leads to savagery like this.
A woman expired in a local hospital on Sunday six days after she was subjected to severe torture by her husband.
The victim was identified as Asiya, wife of Manzoor of Sattukatla village. Police said accused Manzoor had severely beaten his wife six days back over the issue of not giving birth to a baby boy. The injured woman was admitted to a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. Police shifted the body to morgue for autopsy and registered a case against the murderer.
