Arabic Writing Found Inside 4 EasyJet Fuel Panels

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

Arabic writing was found written on the inside of fuel panels of 4 separate EasyJet planes in France, as well as inside the bathroom of one of the planes, according to a report in the UK Telegraph.

Lisa King, an easyJet cabin safety manager sent out an email:

“EasyJet assessed this issue, each time working in full consultation with the authorities, and is entirely satisfied it is nothing more than graffiti. EasyJet takes very seriously any security related issue and would not operate a flight unless we are entirely satisfied it is completely safe to do so. EasyJet operates its fleet of aircraft in full compliance with all regulations. The safety and security of its passengers and crews is always easyJet’s highest priority.”

An investigation is underway to determine who wrote the graffiti and how they had access to the fuel panels on 4 airplanes.

A Misquoted MK Michael Oren Analyzes President Obama

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

The original article has been removed and will be updated on Sunday, along with important clarifications requested by MK Michael Oren regarding parts of the interview.

MK Michael Oren spoke Saturday morning at a cultural event in Be’er Sheva, addressing Israel—US relations and President Obama’s worldview.

The spokesman for the Beersheba municipality has apologized for misquoting Mk Michael Oren, clarifying that Oren did not say that Obama introduced “radical Muslim values into the White House.”

MK Oren wants to make absolutely clear that he was not attacking President Obama in any way during the discussion, and he was presenting a “controlled and responsible analysis.”

Oren adds that he “praises the close security cooperation between Israel and the US under President Obama.”

Oren did say, “It’s the president’s right to bring into the White House a different worldview that’s unlike his predecessors’” and “It is our responsibility to recognize this fact and to act accordingly.”

During the discussion, Oren mentioned Obama’s childhood as well as influences in college as helping shape the President’s worldview.

Survey: 55% – 73% of White Christian Americans Reject Muslim Values

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

(JNi.media) The new Public Religion Research Institute poll, aptly titled “Anxiety, Nostalgia, and Mistrust: Findings from the 2015 American Values Survey,” released Tuesday, points out that a majority of American Christians believe Muslim values are at odds with American values and way of life.

Perceptions of Islam have turned more negative over the past few years. Today, 56% of Americans agree that the values of Islam are at odds with American values and way of life, while 41% disagree. Opinion on Islam’s compatibility with American values varies greatly by religious beliefs. 73% of white evangelical Protestants believe Islam is at odds with American values, compared with 63% of white mainline Protestants, 55% of black Protestants, 61% of Catholics and 41% of the religiously unaffiliated. In 2011, Americans were still about evenly divided in their views of Islam: 47% agreed, 48% disagreed it was at odds with American values.

With less than one year to go until the 2016 general election, the mood of the American people is marked by anxiety and mistrust, concludes the PRRI poll: more than 72% believe that the country is still in a recession, as they did in 2014. Americans are divided down the middle, 49-49% on whether America’s best days are ahead of us or behind them. They are pessimistic and anxious about crime, racial tensions, and immigration.

And they don’t trust Muslims. More than 60% of white Protestants and Catholics, 55% of African-American Protestants, and 56% of Americans overall see a split between American and Muslim values, up from 47% in 2011 and 2014.

The nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) conducted the 2015 American Values Survey among 2,695 Americans between September 11 and October 4, 2015. It measures public opinion about the economy, racial discrimination, the criminal justice system, trust in public institutions, perception of the Tea Party, the relationship between religious affiliation and political attitudes, views of immigrants, and how demographic changes impact the cultural landscape in the country.

Compared with a few years ago, Americans report less tolerance when encountering non-English speaking immigrants. 48% of Americans say they are bothered when they come into contact with immigrants who speak little or no English, compared with 40% in 2012. 63% of white working-class Americans say they feel bothered when they come into contact with immigrants who do not speak English, compared with 43% of white college-educated Americans.

73% of Donald Trump’s supporters say they are bothered by encounters with immigrants who speak little English. 69% of Trump supporters rate immigration as a critical issue to them personally, compared with only 50% of supporters of other Republican candidates.

The survey Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish between September 11 and October 4, 2015 among a random sample of 2,695 U.S. adults (age 18 and up). Interviews were conducted both online and by telephone. The margin of error for the survey is +/- 2.6% at the 95% level of confidence.

Netanyahu to French Envoy: The Beasts Have a Name – Radical Islam

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke with French Ambassador Patrick Maisonnave and expressed the solidarity of the entire country with France following the latest and by far the worst terrorist attack in Paris.

He said:

The people of Israel stand with the people of France. Ambassador, this is not a figurative stance, it’s not just lip service….

It’s difficult for civilized men and women to recognize that our cities, our airways, sometimes our waterways are prowled by beasts that devour the innocent in their way. And the forces of civilization…have no option but to unite very clearly and defeat these beasts.

The beasts increasingly have a name – it is radical Islam.

The Prime Minister spoke at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference, where the newspaper’s Herb Keinon asked him if Israel would consider unilateral measures in light of the diplomatic stalemate with the Palestinian Authority.

Prime Minister Netanyahu answered that there are various ways to do so, but he declined to clarify what he meant.

Brooklyn Muslim Community Leader Prays God ‘Take ISIS off the Earth’

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

(JNi.media) Mohammad Razvi, a Brooklyn businessman who, after 9/11, gave up much of his business to become an advocate for Muslim Americans, is the kind of Muslim everybody talks about when they argue Islam is not crazy and bloodthirsty, only large groups of jihadists are.

In Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, on Sunday night, on the same weekend as the bloody Paris attacks, faith leaders of all stripes gathered to prayed for peace in English, Hebrew, Arabic and French, PRI reported. And, in this group, it was Muslim community leader Mohammad Razvi who had the harshest things to say against the ISIS murderers. And while public officials and clerics called for unity and tolerance, Razvi, a descendant of Pakistani immigrants, said: “We pray to God for justice and for these individuals to be taken off this Earth. If it’s going to take our communities coming together and our governments to come together internationally, so be it. We look forward — because the red, white and blue are coming to get you!”

Razvi insists his views about ISIS are based in his faith. In his opinion, they “have nothing to do with Islam.” Citing the Prophet Mohammed (in text that’s reminiscent of the teachings of the Jewish sages), he said, “If they hurt one human person, it’s as if they are hurting all of humanity. If you help one human being, it’s as if you’re helping the whole humanity. It doesn’t matter what culture or what religion they’re from.”

Mohammad Razvi, who received the FBI 2012 Director’s Community Leadership Award, used to run a small empire of family-owned stores in Little Pakistan, Brooklyn, NPR reported in 2006. But after the 9/11 attacks he left the business to become a community activist. He told NPR that his life had changed dramatically. For one thing, his paycheck is not what it used to be. But Razvi has no regrets.

Half the United States Won’t Accept Syrian Refugees [video]

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Half of America’s 50 governors have rejected President Barack Obama’s plan to relocate 10,000 Syrian refugees throughout the country.

Muslim American groups immediately accused them of “Islamophobia.” Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director of CAIR, told Al Jazeera.

We believe these governors are succumbing to fear and Islamophobia. This is really a non-issue because refugees and immigrants are checked thoroughly by the authorities before entering the US.

In Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has stated that Israel is not a position to take in refugees, but Opposition leader Yitzchak “Bujie” Herzog asserted that “Jews cannot be indifferent when hundreds of thousands of refugees are searching for a safe haven.” He did not refer to the risk of terror or the effect on increasing the non-Jewish population in Israel.

Several of the American governors, all of them Republican except for New Hampshire, said they would accept Christian Arabs, prompting President Obama to express his horror at what he called discrimination that is not “American.”

The President said in his speech on Friday night’s Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris:

That is shameful. That is not American. That is not who we are. We don’t have religion tests for our compassion. Pope Francis visited…he didn’t just speak of Christians who are being persecuted…

I was very proud after 9/11 when President Bush] was adamant and declared that is not a war ion Islam….”

Governors’ comments indicated this is a war against terror and not Islam, and since almost all of the terrorists are Muslims, they are not taking any chances.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott wrote in an open letter to President Obama:

Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that Syrian refugees will not be part of any terroristic activity.

Jeb Bush, one of the leading Republican candidates for the GOP presidential nomination, said that the United States should accept only “the Christians that are being slaughtered.”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, also vying for the nomination, stated that there “is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror.”

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said:

There may be those who will try to take advantage of the generosity of our country and the ability to move freely within our borders through this federal resettlement program, and we must ensure we are doing all we can to safeguard the security of Americans.

Here is a list of states whose governors said they will not cooperate with federal efforts to disperse Syrian refugees:

Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho;

Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine;

Massachusetts,Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey;

North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Only seven states have said they will accept refugees. Only one of them, Utah, has a Republican governor. The six states with Democratic governors are:

Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

Below is the video of President Obama’s horror that states reject Syrian Muslims refugees:

US Drone Targets ISIS Terrorist ‘ Jihadi John’ in Raqqa, Syria

Friday, November 13th, 2015

The United States targeted the British-accented Da’esh (ISIS) terrorist known as “Jihadi John” in a drone strike on the group’s headquarters in Raqqa on Thursday (Nov. 12).

U.S. officials could not confirm whether the terrorist actually died in the strike. Multiple news outlets reported, however, that he was “almost certainly killed,” according to The Washington Times.

“U.S. forces conducted an air strike in Raqqa, Syria, on Nov. 12, 2015 targeting Mohamed Emwazi, also known as ‘Jihadi John,” Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook told reporters at a briefing.

A subsequent news report broadcast on ABC News said “Emwazi was ‘eviscerated’ as he left a building in Raqqa, Syria, and entered a vehicle. The official called it a ‘clean hit’ with no collateral damage.”

The U.S. drone involved in the attack “had been tracking Emwazi for some time, watched him all day,” according to a senior American official quoted by Fox News.

Emwazi has been shown in several key ISIS videos behind a black mask, depicting the beheadings of Western hostages, including the murders of journalists Steven Sotloff (a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen) and James Foley, Japanese journalist Kenji Goto, U.S. aid worker Abdul-Rahman Peter Kassig, and British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning, among others.

The terrorist was a former resident of London who emigrated to the UK from Kuwait at age six. He was two classes short of reaching his degree in business management at the University of Westminster.
