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.

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.

How to Stop the Arab Violence on the Temple Mount

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

Prime Minister Netanyahu is overthinking the problem.

There is ongoing Arab violence on the Temple Mount.

– The Arabs are harassing visitors to the Temple Mount.
– The Arabs are attacking visitors to the Temple Mount.
– The Arabs are attacking police on the Temple Mount.
– The Arabs are rioting on the Temple Mount.
– The Arabs are preparing bombs on the Temple Mount.

I’m not sure what other options Netanyahu is considering, since there’s really only one solution that’s guaranteed to work.

No Arabs, no violence.

The logic is simple…

Arabs are no longer welcome or allowed onto the Temple Mount. Period.

The Israeli police have no problem preventing Jews from going up. It’s time they now are forced to address the real source of the problem.

The results will be…

– No Arabs on the Temple Mount, no one on the Temple Mount gets harassed.
– No Arabs on the Temple Mount, no one on the Temple Mount gets attacked.
– No Arabs on the Temple Mount, no riots on the Temple Mount.
– No Arabs on the Temple Mount, no bombs on the Temple Mount.

Is Bibi afraid the Arabs in the Old City will get violent in response?

Well then Netanyahu is overthinking the problem, since there’s really only one solution that’s guaranteed to work…

American Woman Punched by Muslim on Temple Mount

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

An older Jewish woman who recently immigrated to Israel from the United States on aliyah was attacked when she made her first trip to the Temple Mount this week.

Brenda Rubin, a resident of Jerusalem, was a new Israeli for seven months when she was punched in the ribs Tuesday morning by a burka-clad Muslim woman.

Because the attacker was wearing a burka, as were those around her, security personnel obviously knew it would be impossible to identify with certainty who the attacker had been — possibly a factor in the planning of the Arab harassment campaign in the first place.

“It was my first time on the Mount and it was a very important thing for me,” she said. “This woman in black came in between our lines and gave me a big punch under my rib on my side that I’m still feeling.”

Burka-clad Muslim women who harassed a group of Jews visiting the Temple Mount. One of them viciously punched a Jewish woman in the ribs. No arrest was made.

When Rubin reported the attack to a police officer immediately after, he brusquely told her to “file a complaint” (at the nearby police station – after leaving the Temple Mount.)

He took no further action, even though the group of burka-clad Muslim women from which her attacker emerged was still standing nearby, harassing a small group of Jews.

“I feel like, we came to Israel, this is our Land, we didn’t come here to be shivering Jews,” Rubin said in a taped interview afterwards. “It’s really painful that somebody could feel they could come and use the name of God to come and hurt us.”

According to a Facebook post by The Temple Institute, “Muslim women are paid a daily stipend by the Muslim Brotherhood (Hamas) to be present on the Temple Mount during the hours that Jews are allowed on the Mount, and to verbally and physically harass the Jewish worshipers from the moment they enter the Mount to the moment they exit the Mount.

“The Israel police, following strict orders, do nothing to prevent the attacks nor intervene once the attacks have occurred, (due to government fear of offending the Muslims).”

The Temple Mount is the holiest site on earth in Judaism, and the third holiest site in Islam. Nevertheless, the Israeli government has allowed Jordan to govern the site via the Islamic Waqf Authority. Jews are regularly mistreated at the site and sometimes attacked; often they are denied access to the site altogether, despite legal rights to the contrary.

Rubin, who still feels pain in her side, added, “I would like the people who feel that there is some commonality, to come [to the Mount] and walk around on some morning and see… how we’re being harassed – and that’s very disturbing.”

A text at the end of the videotaped interview states in Hebrew: “This time, the blow came as a punch; but the next time could be a knife.”

Muslim Nutcase Says Mossad Stole His Shoe

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

The Mossad is breaking into Muslim homes and driving them crazy by taking possessions, such as a single shoe, according to the British Muslim who founded the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK.

Anti-Zionists should be cringing with embarrassment over Asghar Bukari’s Facebook and Twitter post, which in part read:

Are Zionists trying to intimidate me: Someone came into my home yesterday, while I was asleep. I don’t know how they got in, but they didn’t break in – the only thing they took was one shoe……. they] left one shoe behind, to let me know someone had been there.

He asked followers to “share this widely, and The JewishPress.com is happy to oblige, although Twitter has closed one of his accounts that posted the insanity.

Let’s not judge him harshly. Perhaps the Mossad really took the shoe to frame him. The Mossad probably firebombed a synagogue, put the shoe in the mud nearby and intended to put the shoe back in Bukhari’s house before calling the cops to catch him with the evidence.

And why one shoe? That is exactly the brilliance of the Mossad plot against Bukhari, who also will be charged with trying to fool police by hopping on foot to throw the police off guard.

It is all so obvious that the Mossad should be ashamed of such an amateurish scheme.

Before reading Bukhari’s rant, let’s look at a few other comments on Twitter after his shoe tweet went viral:

Zionists and Uncle Toms going bonkers. I’ve waited so long for this. Heaven. Now can I have my shoe back??

I will soon be doing a video on my now famous (chuckles to myself) shoe. Watch this space. Watch this space. Haters gonna hate

Zionists are bullies they operate to intimidate muslims. Don’t get bullied. Don’t let them operate in the shadows

Actually thinking about it, they also stole dead children’s body parts #MossadStoleMyShoe Can’t believe zionists upset I said they stole something. Hello they stole the whole of Palestine #MossadStoleMyShoe

Funny thing is the zionists now trying to desperately hide their game of intimidation on my Twitter feed. Bit late the horse has bolted

And now for his piece de resistance:


Bukhari's post.

2 Islamic Holidays to Close NYC Public Schools Next Year

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

New York City public schools will close next year for two Muslim holidays – Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.

The two Islamic celebrations were officially designated as public school holidays by the New York State Department of Education this week.

Mayor Bill DeBlasio made the announcement Wednesday (March 4) at a news conference, saying it was “only fair.”

Children from a community that is an “integral part of the city” should be able to celebrate their holidays as do others in New York, DeBlasio said.

Obama Says US ‘Not At War With Islam’

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

U.S. President Barack Obama declared Wednesday that the United States is “not at war with Islam” but rather, is at war “with people who have perverted Islam.”

Speaking at the White House summit on “countering violent extremism” the president added that world leaders “must confront the twisted ideology that terrorists use to recruit” young Muslims to their cause.

Coming closer than he ever has before to acknowledging that terrorists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) are, in fact, citing Islam as their motivation, Obama said, “They do draw selectively from the Islamic texts.”

However, he stressed, “No religion is responsible for terrorism. People are responsible for terrorism.”

“ISIL (another acronym for Daesh), Al Qaeda and groups like that are desperate for legitimacy. We should not grant them the religious legitimacy they seek,” Obama insisted. “They are not religious leaders; they’re terrorists!”

Obama added that he believed it is essential to address economic and political “grievances” held by marginalized Muslim populations, particularly in the U.S. More to the point, he said, it is essential to address the increasing alienation of young Muslims.

Social media has become the primary means for terrorist groups to reach and recruit new members, Obama said. The problem is, the older generation is often not aware of what the younger generation is doing at home online.

“Old people, you are not connected and as a result, you are not connecting,” he said bluntly. “Today’s young people online in cyber space” are being snapped up by recruiters for Daesh and Al Qaeda via the Internet, impressed by the glitz of souped-up videos and online jihadist magazines.

“When someone starts getting radicalized, teachers may notice a student withdrawing. If they offer support, that may make a difference,” Obama said. “Faith leaders can reach out and in that moment, they too may make a difference.”
