U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told Muslims Thursday night that the absence of peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is “a cause of recruitment and of street anger and agitation.”
He told a reception in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha that the anger “has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity.”
This is not satire. This is real. This is actually what was declared by Kerry, former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and now the Secretary of State of the United States of America.
It would be funny if it were not true, but it certainly is sad when an intelligent person plays the role of idiot and connects dots that create a maze without an escape route by manufacturing the Arab world’s demands on Israel as the cause of all problems in the world, except for Ebola – so far.
The Muslim holiday reception was hosted by Shaarik Zafar, whom Kerry appointed last month as Special Representative to Muslim Communities. That was just after the Islamic State ISIS murderers hanged its first American victim, journalist James Foley. Kerry’s response at the installation ceremony of Zafar was, “The real face of Islam is a peaceful religion based on the dignity of all human beings.”
That is the premise for the twisted path that ends with the finger of blame for Muslim violence at the doorstep of Israel. The Obama administration is careful to not to single out Israel for the failure of talks but simply says so in a twisted way by damning every one of nearly 350,000 Jews in Jerusalem neighborhoods as “illegitimate’ and “illegal,” just like an equal number in Judea and Samaria.
Kerry began his speech by praising the “terrific $5.4 billion” raised in Cairo this week to rebuild Gaza. He did not mention that Hamas, which runs Gaza, has not agreed to disarm and has actually bragged that it is continuing to manufacture rockets to restore the stockpile lose in the recent war.
Once again, the Obama administration has ignored Israel’s insistence that there can be no peace with a terrorist organization that does not disavow its stated goal of destroying Israel.
Instead, the key is “negotiations,” a term which Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas has successfully turned into “ultimatum.”
No peace in Gaza? No problem. Kerry said last night, “It is imperative that we find a way to get back to the negotiations for what everybody knows is, in the end, the only way to go forward that makes sense.”
And that is where his “Special Representative to Muslim Communities comes into play.
“We have the first faith-based office,” Kerry stated. “We have the office reaching out to the Islamic world. And when he started drafting our national strategic approach as a leader of a faith community, he began that strategy with two words: ‘religion matters.'”
Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and atheism never mattered in the State Dept’s 30-year goal of punishing Israel for having won the war against the Arab Muslim world in 1967, but all of a sudden religion matters because radical Islam is embarrassing to followers of Allah.
“What we’re really doing as we… celebrate Eid al-Adha is that we are celebrating sort of the meaning and importance of sacrifice and devotion in our lives,” said Pastor Kerry.
Sounding more like John Lennon than a man of individual faith, he cited the quest for “introspection and re-evaluation through Eid al-Adha and Yom Kippur.
Kerry painted a lovely picture of the world of “a young girl somewhere in New Delhi praying outside of a mosque, or kids or adults in Pakistan, girls singing songs and painting their hands with henna, or Shiites in the holy city of Najaf or fellow Shi’a celebrating Eid-e-Ghorban in Iran.”
Put aside any radical and fanatical thoughts that the madman who beheaded a woman in Oklahoma acted out of any beliefs that are connected to his new-found Muslim religion. The murder simply was no more and no less than “workplace violence.”
Who says so?
Sp says Melissa Victoria Harris-Perry, who also is a convert to Islam and is the host of her show on MSNBC. Harris-Perry was backed by her three stooges who nodded their robotic heads approvingly, two of them being controversial Muslim comedians.
Rest assured. The host insisted, “I think this to me is that there is a belief that at the core – I can also probably have breakfast that morning but we don’t think any of those things are relevant. But we do think that his conversion, jailhouse by the way, conversion is what is relevant.”
She has a point – on her head.
Beheading is not your everyday murder, and the fact that ISIS Islamic radicals have popularized the barbaric act has no more significance than Harris-Perry’s eating breakfast?
The question is, “What is Harris-Perry putting in her corn flakes?”
Apparently she is eating with laughing gas. For her, the only connection between radical Islam and the beheading carried out by Alton Nolen is in the imagination of radical and fanatical right-wingers who are looking for a Muslim terrorist behind every beheading carried out by a Muslim who posted radical and fanatical statements on his Facebook page,
All Muslims are not violent, just as all Jews are not money-lenders, an image that has dogged us even until today ever since Medieval Christian rulers barred Jews from respectable professions and left them with little opportunity except to be peasants or lend money..
Normal, moderate mainstream Muslims have allowed radical Islam to hijack their religion, but Harris-Perry has a remedy.
Meet funny Islam.
“We’ve gone on and on and on creating this language between Muslims and violence and we need to have a counter-narrative. We don’t. So what we need — that is what we are trying to do… Muslims are funny. That’s the new stereotype. Pass it around. Muslims are hilarious,” one of her stooges said.
If Harris-Perry were not serious she really would be funny.
Take a look for yourself in the video below of the excerpt from her show in which she calls the beheading “workplace violence.”
On Tuesday, September 11th 2001 America was forever changed. At 8:46 a.m, five fanatic Muslim hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into the northern facade of the World Trade Center’s North Tower (1 WTC) and 17 minutes later at 9:03, another five fanatic Muslim hijackers crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the southern facade of the South Tower (2 WTC). At 9:37 a third plane hijacked by another 5 fanatic Muslim terrorists flew into the Pentagon.
This was the most devastating attack to happen on American soil since the attack on Pearl Harbor. 2,977 innocent Americans lost their lives to the claws of fanatic Islam.
American men, women, children, Christians, Jews and Muslims were all the same to the terrorists who carried out the hideous 9/11 attack, they were all AMERICAN!
This was not about land or about foreign policy, this was about a grotesque and violent opposition to what America stands for; FREEDOM & EQUALITY!
The initial shock, pain and mourning was terrible and 13 years later many still cannot deal with the loss.
As an Israeli, I have seen and experienced the result of terrorism and have faced terrorists while serving in the IDF. I have lost men in battle as well as friends in random terrorist attacks and am way too familiar with this kind of pain. What these fanatic Muslim terrorists do not understand is, we, the free people of the world, have compassion. We care for each other and when they attempt to murder, destroy and cripple us, we actually become stronger and heroes are born.
The personal loss on 9/11 was something no human should ever experience but when it comes America’s pride, Al Qaeda lost big time! Not only did the great USA pick itself up, it rose more united and stronger than ever.
Then Came September 12th!
There is only one thing more tragic than experiencing a terror attack and that is allowing those who attacked to do it again!
The United States of America went on an all out offensive against those who were responsible for the 9/11 attack and took out the head of the snake; Bin Laden. The only problem is, what was actually cut off was the tail and it wasn’t a snake, it was a lizard and a lizard’s tail grow back!
Unlike Hitler whose entire ideology came from his own head and could not be replaced, Bin Laden is a result of shared religious belief that needs no justification since it came from Allah.
Fanatic Islam has been the source for the majority of international terrorism over the past 50 years.
Islamic ( fanatic Islam) ideology does not believe in freedom or equality and believes in a social norm that would make most people reading this blog sick to their stomach.
It doesn’t matter how many bullets you killed Bin Laden with or where you dumped his body, when you bow or show respect to cultures or countries that do not believe women are allowed to drive, you are fueling the next 9/11.
I’ll admit it, I don’t like Obama, but this is not a problem that is exclusive to his administration. The United States has made treaties over the years with Muslim countries that laugh at the idea of freedom and equality, even for their own citizens! The burning of American flags can be seen from the same Islamic regimes that America thinks they have a good relationship with! Have you EVER seen an Israeli demonstration with burning American flags?!
Qatar is an official ally of the United States of America. Qatar is also the largest funder of Islamic terror as they ally themselves and fund organizations that seek the destruction of all Western society and culture including that of the USA.
The Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani with Hamas head in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh during the emir’s October 2012 visit to Gaza. With that information known one, must ask why the Obama administration just signed an $11 BILLION weapons deal with Qatar! When @Blocknesmonster brought this Business Insider story to my attention, I could not believe my eyes!I understand Muslims have oil, but isn’t American lives more important?
Is Racial Profiling Justified?
While I understand why Muslims would be offended when they walk through airport security and are targeted for security checks only because they are Muslim, if Jews were blowing things up and flying planes into sky scrapers, all my anger would be reserved ONLY for those using my religion to justify murder.
Moderate Muslims should be the first to cooperate with security checks and encourage racial profiling as it eases the ability to catch those who are giving peaceful Muslims a bad name.
It might very well be that these terrorists are perverting the way of Islam but that does not change the fact that they believe they are following and preserving Allah’s way.
This is the Islamic terrorist organization that Israel recently fought a war against. Why anyone would want anything else besides total destruction of Hamas is beyond me.
America thought that if they took down Saddam and gave the people of Iraq freedom, they would be doing the Iraqi people a favor. Obama was so sure the war in Iraq was over, he bragged about it time and time again until this happened!
ISIS, Hizbollah, Hamas, Al Qaeda, PLO and many other terrorist organizations have one thing in common, they all believe that Allah gave them the right to murder.
There is not a single Islamic regime in the world that is peaceful and believes in giving equality even to their own citizens. I am not talking about what they do to homosexuals or other minority groups, I am talking to what they do to their own women!
Whether it’s the ban on women drivers or arresting women who do not cover themselves completely, fanatic Islam has absolutely nothing in common with anyone who believes in all men and women are created equally!
Are We Willing To Die For Truth As Much As They Are Willing To Kill For Lies?
Fanatic Muslims believe their lies more than we believe our truths and they are willing to die and kill you to protect their beliefs. While we are battling it out in the UN, trying to justify our actions and wars, organizations like ISIS are trying to figure out the cruelest way to murder innocent people and broadcast it all over the web.
While we are making rules of engagement and war based on humanity, those who are being protected by these rules reject them based on their religion.
Many claim Al Qaeda and ISIS were created by the United State of America and the truth is, they are not totally wrong. It is not that the US intended in any way to create these hideous Islamic terror organizations, but when you train and arm one fanatic Islamic movement to fight another, the guns will eventually be pointed you!
On September 11th, 2001, Islamic terrorists carried out a horrific attack killing innocent Americans. The Muslims terrorists that murdered almost 3,ooo Americans did not come from Saudi Arabia or Iran, these were American Muslims who were given the luxury of living freely in the land of opportunity! They were and are free to study, work, live and even become President, but they chose their barbaric ideology over freedom.
Are All Muslims Terrorists?
The answer is an absolute NO and anyone who would say yes is a racist. There are many peaceful Muslims who despise what the radical Muslims are doing.
According to all intelligence services around the world, radical Islam makes up between 15% – 25% of all Muslims. The problem is, 15% – 25% of 1.2 BILLION equals 180,000,000 – 300,000,000 MILLION people dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization!
When the United States allies themselves with radical Islamic regimes that represent the 25% of Muslims, they are actually starting the timer for the next bomb.
If there is anything Hitler taught us, it is, there comes a time when we must stop talking and start dropping bombs. There is no treaty or amount of money that can convince extreme Islamic terrorists to betray Allah. There is only one way to make sure 9/11 doesn’t happen again and that is to fight and destroy anyone and everyone who believes that such an attack is justified, moral or a ticket to virgin paradise. Any deals, treaties or partnerships with regimes that believe killing innocent people is the way to go is the fuel that will be used in the next flight to hit……
A message to moderate and peaceful Muslims.
There are some who say you do not exist, I know you do!
Whether it’s my neighbor Ashraf from Bethlehem or Aalimah who is studying law at a prestigious American University, YOU are victims of Islamic terror. The 25% radical Muslims claim they represent you and if you do not shout from the rooftops and support America’s offensive against these groups, you are actually supporting them. If you are not using your freedom of speech to vocally oppose and fight radical Islam, you will be considered part of the problem.
Is that fair?
NO! But neither was the death of 2,977 innocent Americans who died in what Muslim terrorists claimed was the way of Jihad.
I cannot imagine the predicament you are in, but if you want people to see you as the peace loving people I know you are, you must be on all online platforms and universities campuses fighting those radicals who are giving you a bad name!
Here is just one example of an Israeli Muslim who has decided he has had enough of radical Muslims giving him a bad name. Mohammad Zoabi is the key to peace in the Middle East and if anyone; Jew, Muslim or Christian, attack him, I will be the first to stand for his protection as a Muslim, an Israeli and a human being!

A 20-year-old Muslim woman from Glasgow, Scotland left her parents weeping after she called from the Turkish-Syria border to tell them she is serving the ISIS machine of evil and “wants to become a martyr.”
Aqsa Mahmood, a radiography student, left home in November and has posted messages on Twitter urging western women to carry out terrorist attacks and “follow the examples of your brothers from Woolwich, Texas and Boston.”
At least 20 British women have joined ISIS thanks to social media, Melanie Smith, of King’s College International Center for the Study of Radicalization told the Guardian. Other reports put the number of British women in the ISIS at 60.
She estimates that approximately 200 western women have joined ISIS, which has popularized beheading and has taken brutal gang rapes to a new extreme.
The 20-year-old Mahmood presumably is not in charge of lining up rape victims for ISIS murderers, who do very well by themselves.
Her job as president of the jihadist version of the Sisterhood is to supervise the women’s police force in Rakka, where a British-accented ISIS killer beheaded journalists James Foley and Steve Sotloff. The force of approximately 20 women keep a watch and punish women if they do not behave as good Muslims, fully covered and accompanied by a man when in public lest they fall into the clutches of an intelligent human being.
As for the “Brotherhood” side of the ISIS, their code of good behavior is a bit different. One woman captive of ISIS told an Italian reporter of brutal sexual harassment. She said a 17-year-old was one of 40 women, some of them still in captivity and as young as 13, who were sex slaves for the ISIS.
One of the most important functions of the women is to bear as many children as possible to ensure the growth of the ISIS and help it fulfill its devotion to Allah and destroy Western civilization.
Asqa Mahmood’s parents told CNN they pleaded with her daughter to come home “in the name of Allah.” Of course, she has decided that she is acting in the name of Allah and has married one of the ISIS terrorists, so there really is not much to talk about. They said that their daughter was “brainwashed.”
Two of the British girls have been identified as 16-year-old twin sisters, Zahra and Salma Halane, who followed their brother’s move to Syria, left their Manchester home in June and are believed to have married ISIS members.
Not all of the British women are Muslims from birth. The London Independent identified one of them as Sally Jones, a convert from Kent, who apparently turned her life around after meeting on social media a computer hacker who was attracted to jihad.
Another woman tweeted, “I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!”
Radical Muslim Salafists have formed a “Sharia police force” and are patrolling the city of Wuppertal, targeting the nightlife area of the western German city.
Germany has outlawed extreme Salafist groups, but that has had little effect on fundamentalists bent on enforcing Islamic law on “infidels.”
The self-style police are so brazen that they wear easily-seen orange vests with the words “Sharia police” emblazoned on the back. They distribute leaflets that urge people to refrain from alcohol, drugs, gambling, and even attending concerts.
Police last week arrested nearly a dozen men, but the only charges that they might be able to file are illegal assembly.
“Intimidation or provocation won’t be tolerated,” Wuppertal Police Chief Birgitta Rademacher said on Friday.
That sounds a bit familiar.
As seen in the news report below, a political leader who is a critic of radical Islam said, “I underestimated the danger the Salafists pose…. Now I cannot walk without police protection, not even shopping.”
The Sharia police is a new challenge for German.
“An appearance that intimidates, unsettles and provokes will not be tolerated. There is no legitimation for this “Sharia Police,” Birgitta Radermacher, police chief of Wuppertal was quoted as saying in a statement.
Time will tell.
German Salafists this weekend posted a YouTube video showing a poster with the English headline “Sharia Controlled Zone” and footage of Salafists recruiting young people and visiting gambling halls.
Der Spiegel’s website reported that police in Bonn are investigating reports that Salafists are harassing people, assaulted a youth for drinking alcohol and tried to force a Muslim girl to wear a veil.
The murderer of four people, including two Jews from Tel Aviv, in the attack last May on the Jewish Museum in Brussels was an ISIS terrorist who was one of the captors and torturers of James Foley, Steve Sotloff and a French journalist, who was released and now had identified the killer.
The terrorist is Medhi Nemmouche, a French citizen who is to go on trial in Belgium on Friday for the murders at the museum. He was arrested several days after the terrorist attack, and he fought for the Islamic State (ISIS) in 2013 only three weeks after he was released from prison, where he served five years for armed robbery.
The immediate reaction of Brussels officials after the attack was typical of the head in the sand illusion that makes believe that many terrorists are “lone wolves,” that many attacks on Jews or Jewish institutions are just a coincidence and that the radical Islamic movement in Europe does not threaten to overthrow the entire continent.
The fact that at that time of his arrest he had a white sheet emblazoned with the name of the ISIS clearly indicates Nemmouche, even if he acted alone, was not just some jihadist who woke up one morning and decided to become a terrorist.
Anti-Semitism in France is rampant. Considering that the motive was “open” was a denial of reality.
Nemmouche was identified by French journalist Nicolas Henin as the terrorist who attacked the museum. The fact that he is a French citizen belies the false belief among many European leaders that the jihadists are imports.
“The accused gunman is also French, increasing fears in Europe over European citizens’ ties to extremist groups,” National Public Radio reported. French authorities estimate that nearly 1,000 other people from France have joined the jihadists in Syria, and every one of them, unless they are killed first, could be the next Nemmouche.
Henin, who was kidnapped in Syria in 2013 and held for almost a year, said that Nemmouche was only one of several French citizens who were in charge of the prison where he was held.
The journalist has known for some time that one of his captors was Nemmouche but did not say anything in order to protect other Westerners held by ISIS. He broke his silence after Le Monde reported that investigators have linked the killer with ISIS, which really should not be a surprise considering that the sheet with the name ISIS n it at the time of his arrest was widely reported.
“When Nemmouche wasn’t singing, he tortured,” Henin wrote in Le Point. “The torture lasted the night, up until the dawn prayer,” when radical Muslims appeal to Allah to give them the strength for more barbarism.
Europe’s “everything is just dandy” mirage is its own death sentence. Nemmouche used his French citizenship to return to enter Belgium from Germany and is “a perfect example of the difficulty in tracking European jihadists, reported NPR’s Eleanor Beardsley.
Henin’s lawyer Marie-Laure Ingouf told AFP that “Nemmouche was one of his jailers. All the hostages confirm this. They lived alongside him for several months.”
Henin spent part of his time as hostage along with journalists Foley and Sotloff, who were beheaded by ISIS in the past two weeks. He added that it was clear to him and others in captivity that Nemmouche did not leave Syria in order to become a good citizen.
“It seemed to us that he did not leave for Syria because of some grand ideals but, above all, to make his mark, to carry out a murderous path that he had traced,” Henin said.
Christian and Jewish religious leaders in Australia have launched a “We’ll love Muslims 100 years” campaign to express love and support for the country’s Muslim population, the JTA reported.
“We have Muslims who are made to feel like terrorists in the past few years and they report the atmosphere is similar to post-9/11 and it is simply as a result of cultural incompetence,” explained Rabbi Zalman Kastel, of the Together for Humanity Foundation.
He and pastor Brad Chilcott, national director of Welcome to Australia, a non-profit that focuses on issues relating to immigration and asylum, are heading the campaign that is supposed to make Islamic jihadists love Christians and Jews.
The name of the campaign – loving Muslims for 100 years – is a riff on a recent headline, published in the Weekend Australian, that stated, “We’ll fight Muslims 100 years,” according to a report in The Guardian.
It is clear why they will love Muslims for only 100 years and not any longer because if “love” is the solution to Muslim terror, there won’t be any Christians and Jews left in the world in the year 2114.
The year is 2024 is more likely, but let’s not quibble about the extra zero added on to 10 years.
Any assumption that Rabi Kastel is another Reform “rabbi” smoking The New York Times is dead wrong.
Believe it or not, he is a strictly Orthodox rabbi born and raised in Brooklyn.
He and his non-Jewish pals plan three major love events in Australia to rally Australian Muslims around the banner of love.
The Together for Humanity Foundation has been around for 12 years, in which time its love has paralleled the spread of fanatical Islam to the point that many Muslim countries as well as almost the entire non-Muslim world, except Israel, is scared to death, literally.
The Humanity Foundation was launched less than year after 9/11 and 12 years before the Islamic State ISIS has declared war on the United States, although President Barack Obama dismisses the declaration while ISIS beheads one American journalist, prepares another one for death and claims it has cells in the United States ready to strike fear into the hearts of heathen Christians and Jews who do not accept Islam. It does not mean middle class Islam but the real stuff that also expresses love – love for hate and love for death.
The catalyst for the “We’ll Love Muslims for 100 Years’ campaign was a recent headline the Weekend Australian, “We’ll fight Islam 100 years.”
It is forbidden to express the words “fight” in the world of Woodstock, unless one is fighting for “love” of everything, including hate. Or as John Lennon sang, “Imagine.” That is far as Rabbi Kastel’s reality goes – imagination.
But he insists he is not living in Woodstock.
It would be interesting to know what Talmudic discussion he uses for his outlook. But so far he is using his foundation’s Muslim president, Christian chairman and an atheist patron to back him.
The good rabbi, may God grant him a speedy spiritual recovery, is bothered by the “harsh talk” against Muslims in mainstream and social media.
“I was concerned about shrill, harsh talk we see both in social and mainstream, even though there is a lot of good interfaith work going on in Australia every day,” he said, quoted by the London Guardian.
“As a result, we have Muslims who are made to feel like terrorists in the past few years and they report the atmosphere is similar to post-9/11 and it is simply as a result of cultural incompetence.
“We are all on the same team, if I may use that word, in terms of the result, and that is peace.”
