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:
A 76-year-old American-Israel died Tuesday morning from knife and bullet wounds in the deadly attack on a bus in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood near Talpiot two weeks ago. One of the terrorists was killed, and the second one was arrested. Both were from the adjacent Jabel Mukhaber neighborhood. The latest victim is former Connecticut school principal Richard Lakin, who was being treated Hadassah Ein Kerem. His death brings to the death from the attack to three. Lakin was principal at Hopewell School for 15 years before making Aliyah with his wife and two children. He will be buried on Wednesday. His sons posted on Facebook Tuesday morning:
Dad passed away this morning. He was 76 years old, and had eight grandchildren. He was butchered by Muslim terrorists who shot him in the head and stabbed him multiple times during an attack on Bus 78 in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood. After the attack Dad was rushed to Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital in Jerusalem where the incredible medical staff worked diligently around the clock for two weeks trying to save his life, but, alas, his injuries were too severe. ‘We love you Dad and will do our best to live respectful, loving lives and pass along ‘acts of kindness.’
Other victims of the stabbing and shooting attack are Haviv Chaim, 78, and Alon Goldberg, 51. Chaim’s wife Shoshana was one of 15 others who were wounded in the attack. She suffered serious wounds but is recovering.Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
The radical Islamic State (ISIS)-inspired terrorist who was gunned down by Boston police Wednesday originally intended to behead activist Pamela Geller but later changed his plans and decided to chop off policemen’s heads, CNN reported.
Police killed 26-year-old Usaamah Rahim when he refused to drop his 8-inch military knife, purchased through Amazon, when officers approached to arrest him for the murder plot.
Geller, who is Jewish, is in the forefront of the campaign against radical Islam and grabbed headlines last month when her American Freedom Defense staged a contest for drawing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Texas. The event earned her plenty of harsh criticism for rabble rousing, and she walks around with security guards.
She told CNN Wednesday:
They targeted me for violating Sharia blasphemy laws. They mean to kill everyone who doesn’t do their bidding and abide by their law voluntarily. This is a showdown for American freedom. Will we stand against this savagery or bow down to them and silence ourselves?
Rahim and his alleged conspirator David Wright are said to have dropped their plans to make Geller their first target and decided approximately two hours before the clash with police:
…Going to … go after them, those boys in blue. Cause … it’s the easiest target.
Wright was arraigned in a Boston court Wednesday and was charged with obstructing a federal investigation by destroying Rahim’s Smartphone that contained evidence of their plot.
Court documents also revealed that Rahim allegedly told Wright after purchasing knives:
I just got myself a nice little tool. You know it’s good for carving wood and … carving sculptures.”
A group of four or five Boston police officers approached Rahim to arrest him when he moved towards them with his drawn military knife and was shot and killed.
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said that Rahim has been under surveillance and that “he was someone we were watching for quite some time.”
A video shows the shooting, but Rahim’s brother Ibrahim has a different version, which he posted on social media:
Boston Imam Abdullah Faaruuq also doubts that the video shows the whole picture. He said:
We can’t say what happened. We weren’t there. We do see a very vague video that is not clear as to what transpired. It wasn’t at a bus stop. He wasn’t shot in the back and there is not detail enough on the video to tell us exactly what happened.
The Council of American-Islamic Relations’ spokesman also joined the doubters and stated:
We have a number of questions. Why exactly was he being followed? What was the probable cause for this particular stop? Were there any video cameras or body cameras of the incident? How do you reconcile the two versions of the story, the family version being that he was on his normal commute to work at a bus stop?
The denial of the police account and the accusations that police simply gunned down Rahim in cold blood underlines the growing problem in the United States of radical Islam and is a carbon copy of the same mindset of the Islamic world in the Middle East, including the Palestinian Authority and some Israel Arab leaders.
No matter what, the guilty party is the victim.
That is why Rahim, the “victim,” wanted to behead Geller.
She has been active in the campaign against radical Islam since the 9/11 attacks and began her Atlas Shrugs blog, which re-published the cartoons from 2007 of Mohammed, showing him with a bomb in his turban and which set off Muslim riots throughout the Muslim world.
Critics have accused of Islamphobia, and she was banned from speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in 2019 after four years of having addressed the event. She said she was kept from speaking because she had accused officials of the organization of being “members of the Muslim Brotherhood and secret Islamist agents.”Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
Israel, France and the United States have sharply criticized Pakistan’s surprise release of the alleged mastermind terrorist allegedly behind the 2008 attacks on a Mumbai hotel and Chabad Center, where Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife were among six Americans and 160 others killed, including six Americans.
Israel’s ambassador to India Daniel Carmon said:
Israel is surprised and disappointed by the release of Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of the Mumbai attack in which, as part of the horrific attack, also Israeli nationals and a Jewish centre – the Nariman [Chabad] House – were targeted.
This release is a setback for the international efforts in the war against terror in which India and Israel are close partners.
The United States said it was “gravely concerned:” after Lakhvi walked out of jail on Friday. French President Francois Hollande, was hosting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said the reelease was “deeply shocking.”
Modi said: “There is a need for global action to deal with terrorism. All nations should commit that they will not provide shelter to terrorists but punish them.”
State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said at the daily news briefing Friday, “Pakistan has pledged its cooperation in bringing the perpetrators, financiers, and sponsors of the Mumbai terrorist attacks to justice, and we urge Pakistan to follow through on that commitment to ensure justice for the 166 innocent people, including six Americans, who lost their lives.”
Lakhvi was released after a Pakistani court suspended his detention. He had been arrested one week after the attacks.Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
Kenya security forces foiled another attack Sunday and saved the lives of approximately 100 people inside a targeted cathedral in Mombasa while the country begins three days of mourning for 148 victims on Thursday’s terrorist attack as Garissa University College.
Kenya officials, under harsh criticism for their slow reaction to the attack, have arrested five suspects.
Kenya is predominantly Christian, and Muslim leaders joined priests on Sunday to speak out against violence.
Churches were heavily guarded for Easter Sunday prayers, and the extra deployment of forces may have led to the prevention of the planned attack on the cathedral.
“We are very concerned about the security of our churches and worshippers, especially this Easter period, and also because it is clear that these attackers are targeting Christians,” said Willybard Lagho, priest and chairman of the Coast Interfaith Council of Clerics.
Police have been deployed at malls and public buildings in Nairobi and along the eastern coast, while authorities have tried to close holes in the border with Somalia with the aid of helicopters.
Students at Garissa College told the country’s The Daily Nation that there had been warnings of a terrorist attack.
“There were rumors that there was going to be an attack on students. Some students said the messages were written in Arabic and that the writer cautioned Muslim students,” one student said, but some people thought it was an April Fool’s Day prank.

The Muslim terrorist who killed Jewish guard Dan Uzan outside a Copenhagen synagogue late Saturday night was able to approach and kill him by acting drunk to fool two nearby policemen into thinking that he was not a terrorist.
The policemen apparently did not understand that good Muslims don’t drink, even if they do murder.
The Copenhagen Post wrote that the Danish newspaper Politiken reported that the attacker, Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, “stumbled and weaved towards the synagogue, enabling him to get close to Dan Uzan, the man standing guard at the synagogue, and two policemen.”
El-Hussein, as The Jewish reported here, was on Denmark’s terror watch list and had a criminal record that included gang-related activities as well as offenses with violence and weapons.
El-Hussein possessed two other guns when police killed him after a massive manhunt. He is another example of a terrorist who does not fit the illusion of bleeding heart leftists who want to believe that poor education and oppression drive Muslims to radical Islam.
El-Hussein, a Danish national, was a “very talented and gifted student who did well professionally,” adult learning school director Peter Zinkernagel, told the Copenhagen Post.
However, he was expelled in 2013 because he stabbed someone, indicating that he also had a talent for violence.
El-Hussein was sentenced to two years in prison for aggravated assault, but – guess what? – he was released last month because he had completed a “long part” of his sentence.
Police have not finished investigating El-Hussein’s attacks on a Copenhagen café and the synagogue.
They have arrested two men on having provided him with the murder weapon, and then getting rid of it and helping to hide the murderer.
Jens Madsen, the head of Denmark’s security service, told the BBC that el-Hussein may have “inspired by militant Islamist propaganda issued by IS [Islamic State] and other terror organizations.”
